Heart Attack
Kills McAdoo
In Washington.

chemical company executive and a
son, flew to the capital today.
For a quarter century, as admin-
istration official, Democratic Party
leader and senator, McAdoo was an
outstanding Washington figure. He
was retired from official life in 1938
when defeated in the Democratic pri-
mary by Sheridan Downey, now the
junior California senator, and became
chairman of the American Presidents
President Roosevelt, whose friend-
ship with the former California Sen-
ator dated from 1912, was one of the
first to express sorrow.,
"I join with the entire country,"
Mr. Roosevelt said, "in mourning him
as one who has given many years of
faithful service to the nation, My
personal affection for him grew with
the years."
Members of the cabinet and leaders
in Congress joined hundreds of others
in expressing regrets.
Flags on vessels of the American
Presidents Line were lowered to half
McAdoo was born near Marietta.
Ga., shortly before Gen. William T.
Sherman's army swept across the
plantation and left the McAdoo fam-
ily in poverty.

Nazi Strength
'LONDON, Feb. 1.-(/P)-An unof
ficial but well-informed air observer
tonight placed the number of air-
planes available to Germany for "full
operation at any given time" at about
9,000 and said Germany's total air
strength, including all types of
planes, is about 40,000.
This observer said three Nazi air
fleets were operating against Britain;
Air fleet no ,2, under Field Mar-
shal General Albert Kesselring, op-
erating from Belgium, northern
France and part of the Netherlands.
Air fleet no. 3, under Field Marshal
General Hugo Sperrle, operating in
western France from bases between
Brest and the Spanish frontier; and
Air fleet no. 5, under Col.-General
Jans Juergen Stumpff, operating
from the northern Netherlands, Em-
den, Germany; Denmark and Nor-
In addition to these, he added, are

Schools Made 1940-41 Headlines

Anniversaries, inaugurations, min-j
or election scandals, spectacular dis-
coveries in science, building-that
was the Big Ten during the first
1940-41 semester.
Ohio State made the headlines in
the field of science. A senior who
had dropped out of school for re-
search work, Harry H. Bachtel,
developed a serum for more than 25
human diseases including streptoco-
ccus infection and pneumonia from
flies. At last reports it was success-
ful in transferring immunity to
white mice, but its effectiveness
with humans remained to be seen.
Sharing the spotlight with this rev-
olutionary discovery in the news from
Columbus was the formal inaugura-
tion of Dr. Howard S. Bevis as presi-
dent of the university. This was the
first formal inauguration in the his-
tory of the university.
Chicago celebrated its fiftieth an-
nivery during the semester. At the
same time the Chicago Daily Maroon
obtained national attention with its
contest to select the most glamorous
boy and girl on the campus and send
them to the Mardi Gras expenses
paid. Biggest surprise on the campus
during the year, though, was the
probation of Blackfriars, organiza-
tion similar to Mimes, for an unpaid
debt of $250 owed to the university
department of Buildings and
The University of Purdue was
another" anniversary celebrant. It
was the 138th birthday of John
Purdue, founder of the university.
In 1863 Purdue donated $150,000 to
aid the state in founding the uni-
versity with the stipulation that it
should bear his name and that the

dead languages of Greek and Latin
.never be taught there.
Wisconsin and Northwestern shared
building honors. Construction on a
$115,000 music building, dedicated to
former Dean Lutkin of the School
of Music was begun, and a $425,000
gymnasium compelted for dedicationG
at home-coming at Evanston. A new
women's dormitory was opened at
Wisconsin. The Badgers had other
interesting happenings, too. Five can-
didates for class officers were found
guilty by a student court of using
money to secure votes. They were
disbarred from the election and forced
to pay court costs.
The big noise at Illinois was the
dispute about refunding the first se-
mester union dues. The new union
building did not open as planned and
the Student Senate demanded re-
funding of the $3 fee. The University
Board of Trustees finally consented
to the refund. Earlier in the year a
new Natural Resources Building was
Over at Indiana the biggest news
and relief was the introduction of
new smaller registration blanks.
The blanks are three-quarters the
size of the old ones. Top activity
at Minnesota was 6th Annual For-
esters Day with Paul Bunyan, leg-
endary woodsman, as its theme,
and the 3rd Annual Snow Week,
extoling winter sports.
National Defense took over Iowa
during the semester. Seven new train-
ing courses were introduced into the
engineering school. They include mo-
tion and time study, chemistry of
explosives, radio theory and construc-
tion practice, tool engineering and
engineering drafting. Enrollment in
them was limited to 310 students.
