Michigan To Open Defense

Crown At Ferry Field
Trackmen To Start
Campaign Today
Michigan will open its defense of
the Big Ten baseball crown at 4 p.m.
today on the Ferry Field diamond
when they meet an unpredictable
Purdue nine from West Lafayette,
Ind., in the first of a two game series.
The Wolverines have played six
non-conference tilts already, taking
four and losing two. Purdue, on the
other hand, opened its Big Ten sea-
son last week when it split a two
game series with the strong Illini
Batting, Pitching Good
Purdue showed plenty of batting
power and good pitching against Illi-
nois so Michigan will have to be on
its toes if it wants to take both ends
of this all-important series.
Walt Leifheit will be on the mound
for the Boilermakers and will be
seeking his second straight win. The
junior curve ball artist set down Illi-
ni batters with only six hits and one
run in the eight innings he worked
against them, to give Purdue its first
conference win of the season.
Boim Or Fishman To Start
Coach Ray Fisher will probably
start either Pro Boim or Mickey
Fishman in the box for Michigan.
Pro has already dropped two games
this season but his recent appear-
ance on the mound against Wayne
boosted his stock considerably.
Fishman has made an excellent
showing so far this season. In his
first game against Maryland the
stocky senlor allowed but five scat-
tered bits and last Tuesday when
he pitched against Western Michi-

Twuny-On& khrn Squad
To Enter Annual Races
Michigan's itinerant track squad,
along with 57 other college and uni-
versity thinclad crews, arrived in
Des Moines today to open its 1942
outdoor season at the mammoth
Drake Relays track carnival, an-
nually one of the most gala round-
ups of track and field stars in the
With only a few weeks of open-air
training under their belts, the Wol-
verine cindermen are still an un-
known quantity as far as outdoor
competition is concerned. But with
entries listed in seven relay events,
along with the individual field events,
Coach Ken Doherty does not expect
his charges to bring a team title back
to Ann Arbor, relying on the Drake
festival more as a warm-up for the
important Conference meets lying in
the not-too-distant offing.
Besides serving to raise the curtain
on the Wolverines' outdoor season,
the Des Moines classic will also give
the Maize and Blue runners a very
large sample dosage of the kind of
competition they will encounter in
their dual meets, for every team in
the Big Ten, with the exception of
Indiana, will have representatives at
Drake. The Hoosiers turned down
the Drake invitation to accept a bid

Mendelssohn Theatre.
Two prominent speakers will be
presented at this program. President
Alexander G. Ruthven will describe
and pay tribute to the founder of the
department in his address "Dr.
Thomas Clarkson Trueblood and the
University." He will be followed by
Dean Edward H. Kraus who will
speak on the "Development of the
Department of Speech."

Speech Honors Assembly which is
under the direction of Prof. Henry
M. Moser. This assembly is sponsored
yearly in order to honor the out-

Dr. C. S. Boucher, Chancellor of
the University of Nebraska, will de-

Convocation, speaking on "War and
Education." The famous educator
and historian is a Michigan graduate
of the Class of 1909, and a former in-
structor of history at the University.
Educational work has taken Chan-
cellor Boucher to many schools
throughout the nation where he has
served in teaching and administra-
tive capacities. Accepting the posi-
tion of Dean of the College of Arts,
Literature and Science of the Uni-
versity of Chicago in 1926, Dr.
Boucher served there until 1935 when

receive commendation for I eir
scholastic achievement. Fellowships
and scholarships will be given to 87
graduate students and 171 others will

liam Halstead will also preside at a
presentation of the Speech concen-
trates, Prof. Louis M. Eich will con-
clude this section of the program
by introducing the graduate students
of the department.
Among the leading universities, the
University of Michigan was the first

Speech, and the first to establish a
separate departmenf of speech. This
department was founded in 1892 with
Dr. Trueblood as head.

A new deal in student government
will be offered this University to-
day as 18 candidates for Michigan's
new Student Senate go before their
constituents in an all-campus elec-
Nine senators will be chosen in to-
day's proportional representation poll
to fill posts in a policy-making body
which has been termed "the last
stand of truly democratic govern-
ment on campus."
Every student on campus, with-
out regard to class standing or affili-
ation, is eligible to vote in this elec-
tion. Identification cards are the
only qualification that has been
set up.

tional representation, it is impera-
tive that all voters fill in nine choices
,in numerical order of preference.
Only those ballots that are correctly
marked can be counted as valid.
Polling booths have been set up
at all central points on campus and
Michigan's student body will be able
to cast its votes from 9:30 a.m.
through 4:30 p.m.
Election Eve Quiet
Election eve was unusually quiet
for a senate race, but well-informed
sources attribute this to the fact that
only one party has entered the field.
Twelve of the 18 nominees are inde-
pendent of any party affiliation and
the high-speed machinery of the
Michigan Party is standing idle for
the first time in many years.
The senate to be selected today
will differ greatly from its predeces-
sors in that it has been cut from 30
members to nine. This reduction
grew out of a sweeping constitution-
al revision in March which also saw
the creation of a senate administra-
tive staff to handle committee func-
tions and actual operation for the
new body.
P'ersonnel Revamped
Equally widespread was a revamp-
ing of senate personnel through con-
stiutional change. All members of
the present senate have waived any
claims to office in the new unit,
The revision was instituted after
heated criticism of past senates for
inefficiency and a "debating society"
status in campus government.

To Help Soviet Armies

Beaverbrook Demands


Hayden Returns To Address
Phi Kappa Phi On Far East

Nearly All Of. Nazi
Concentrated In
Both Sides Mass


Honor Society Announces
New Members Initiated
At Annual Banquet
Western dominance and control of
the Far East is doomed and the myth
of Asiatic inferiority has been com-
pletely shattered, Prof. Joseph R.
Hayden, chairman of the political
science department, asserted yester-
day. At present on leave in the office
of Coordinator of Information at
Washington, D.C., Professor Hayden
spoke before the fifteenth anniver-
sary meeting of the Phi Kappa Phi
honor society.
Speaks On Post-War East
"Every yellow man and every
brown man, no matter how much he,
may hate the Japanese, is thrilled
that the white man has been thrown
out by an Asiatic tribe," said Profes-
sor Hayden as he depicted the con-
ditions of the post-war East. It is
ironical, remarked Professor Hayden,
that Europeans and Americans seized
their Eastern dominance through
superior power and mechanization
and now are losing their hold to the
mechanized Jap hordes.
Stressing the importance of the
tremendous "tower of strength"
which the United States has built
through her liberal and non-preda-
tory Eastern policy, Professor Hay-
den predicted that America will lead
in post-war collaboration.
Such collaboration must evolve in
form of organization in which small
nations are properly represented and
in which a defeated Japan will have
voice and control proper to her popu-
lation and power. Greatest nation
and center of such an organization
will be China.
New Members Announced
Professor Hayden was the featured
speaker at the Phi Kappa Phi dinner
held at the League, at which new
members elected from the Class of
1942, were announced and initiated.
At the dinner Dean Edward Kraus
awarded to Margaret E. Haggan,
'42M, the newly established Phi Kap-
pa Phi award of $100 to be made
annually to a student elected during
the year who has maintained very
high scholarship under pressure of

He expressed regret about the lack
of feeling of a personal stake in the
war by those going into service. His
views were supported by Dean Emil

Chinese And British
Retreat In Burma
NEW YORK, April 23.-()-Lord
Beaverbrook, declaring that "Russia
may settle the war for us in 1942,"
called tonight for a great new offen-
sive by the British in the west to help
the Soviet armies battling Germany.
"By holding the Germans in check,
possibly even by defeating them, the
Russians may be the means of bring-
ing the whole Axis structure down,"
the British publisher told the annual
dinner of the American Newspaper
Publishers Association.
"This is a chance, an opportunity
to bring the war to an end here and
now. But if the Russians are de-
feated and driven out of the war,
never will such' a chance come to us
"Srike out to help Russia. Strike
out violently. Strike even recklessly,
but in any event such blows that real
help will. be our share and contri-
bution to the Russian battlefront."
The British publisher, who recently
left Prime Minister Winston Church-
ill's cabinet to come to the United
States on a government mission, said
that he believed in the Russian the-
ory that "the best form of defense is
attack." He paid high tribute to the
vital aid the United States has given
the Soviet armed forces.
Speaking on the same platform
with Francis B. Sayre, United States
High Commissioner to the Philippine
Islands, Beaverbrook found an at-
tentive audience in the publishers.
Closing their fifty-sixth annual con-
vention, they had sent a resolution
to President Roosevelt pledging "Our
... unswerving support to our Com-
mander in Chief in this hour of na-
tional crisis. ...
Beaverbrook made no effort to
minimize the misfortunes the British
have been surviving on their present
home front, and he also made an ar-
dent defense of Stalin and his Com-
munist Generals.
Russians Prepare
To Face Immense Threat
KUIBYSHEV, U.S.S.R., April 23.
-(IP)-Nine-tenths of the whole Ger-
man Army is on the Russian front
and Hitler has called up 1,900,000 re-
serves, but the Red Army is moving
up enough men to meet this im-
mense threat, the official Soviet
spokesman declared today.
Constant skirmishing, some of it
violent, continued on the vast quag-
mire of the front, but there was yet
no sign of a German spring offensive
and Red Army dispatches laid stress
on the fact that no major action was
being joined.
Russian reports did say, however,
that aerial activity was mounting
sharply in several sectors, with in-
tensified German bombings but with
Russian air advantage being gener-
ally maintained.
The army newspaper Red Star
said the German air force was par-
ticularly active around Staraya Rus-
sa, where a German Army has been
long encircled, and also in the Kalin-
in area and i the southwest. It
said most German air raids were
against troops in frontline positions,
attempts against Murmansk, Lenin-
grad and Sevastopol having been

Chinese, British Back
CHUNGKING, China, April 23.-
WI)-Japanese encirclement tactics,
pressed home with plane-supported
tanks and hard-driving fresh infan-
try, have forced the Chinese to fall
back from Loikaw and Pyinmana on
the east side of the Burma defense
lines, while the British withdrew
from Taungdwingyi on the center.
Battles raged today at key points

all along the Burma front, from the
Shan states near the Siamese bor-
der westward to the Yenangydung
sector on the Irrawaddy, but it was
on the eastern flanks that the ten-
times-superior forces of the invaders
made their most dangerous gains.
