Angell and Dr. Hutchins discour-
aged such activity, feeling that
it took too much time away from
academic duties.
President Alexander G. Ruth-
ven, however, has said that "we
expect our faculty to accept their
responsibilities as citizens." If
they can find the time to carry
on both their academic and their
civic duties, Dr. Ruthven says,
both the University and the com-
munity are benefited.

tion that faculty members have
made to the city' government has

Move To Create Spanish King
Result of Pressure on Franco

AP Foreign Affairs Analyst
For five years General Franco
has been expected to call in Don
Juan, Pretender to the Spanish
throne, if ever it appeared the Fal-
angist regime might not be able to
continue going it alone.
Pressure on Franco has been
building up steadily since .the war,
not only among Spanish dissidents
and exiles, but also in the attitudes
of England, France, Russia and
the United States. Spain has been
subjected to a tightening economic
and political quarantine through
withdrawal of ambassadors by
United Nations members.
Compromise Expected
Now Franco appears to be mov-

Athletics for Fun, Not
Profit, Says Stevenson
MILWAUKEE, April 2 - () -
Terming "the present emphasis
on big time athletics in college
a most unwholesome state of af-
fairs, " Dr. William E. Stevenson,
president of Oberlin College, de-
clared tonight "Wecannot permit
even a few of our best young men
to be demoralized by such a sys-
Dr. Stevenson, in a speech de-
livered at the opening session of
the 33rd annualconvention of the
Mid-West Physical Education As-
sociation, said "School and college
athletics can only be justified as
sport and fun, not as big business"
The four day convention is be-
ing attended by 800 school and
municipal physical education and
recreation workers from West Vir-
ginia, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan,
Illinois and Wisconsin.
"We are certainly losing sight
of our objectives to train adults
and leaders when we permit school
and college athletic contests to de-
generate into Roman holidays,"
asserted the educator, who was a
member of the American 1,600
meter relay team which won the
Olympic title in Paris in 1924.
Dickinson To Discuss
Communist Manifesto
"Backgrounds of the Commu-
nisi Manifesto" will be the sub-
.et of a speech by Prof. Z. Clark
Dickinson of the economics de-
partment at an open meeting of
the Karl Marx Society to be held
at 7:30 p.m. today in Rm. 1025 An-
gell Hall.
The meeting was incorrectly an-
nounced for yesterday in yester-
day's Daily.
Lithuanian Meeting
The Lithuanian Club will meet
at 7:15 p.m. today in the League,
Anyone on campus of Lithuanian
origin or descent is eligible to at-

ing toward the expected compro-
mise with the Monarchists by an-
nouncing plans for installation of
a king when he is through. For
the first time he admits that his
regime is not permanent, but is
dependent upon his own life or
Through the machinery of his
"bill on succession" Franco not'
only is in a position to control the
terms under which king might be
restored but also, more important-
ly, the terms under which the
monarchy would operate. The bill
prescribes that any successor must
abide by the "fundamental" laws.
These are the bill of rights, the
bill of labor rights, the law. con-
stituting the Cortes (parliament),
the law of national referendum,
and the "bill on succession" it-
Bill on Succession
All of these are measures which
Franco designed for the purposes
of his own operations. If all went
well, from his standpoint, a new
government coming in at any time
would still be subject to the ma-
nipulations open to him under
these laws. As long as he and the
Falangists held the machinery, re-
gardless of titular positions, Spain
would still be operating under a
"Franco regime."
