Rlsiain Ice-breaker Reported Talking
To Aiunlsen Reseiie Party
Also Lost
(By Associated Press)
KING'S BAY, Spitzbergen, June 25.
-Gen. Umberto Nobile today was
aboard the base ship Citta di Milaino
at Virgo Bay recovering from injuries
received when the dirigible Italia
crashed on the Polar ice cap on May
Soon after he was rescued from an
ice floe by a Swedish flyer, Nobile was
aiding in the search for his missing
comrades of the Italia with his advice
and knowledge of ice conditions.
He hoped to lead an air expedition
to search for seven men who drifted
to the eastward in the balloon part of
the dirigible after the crash. He is
not expected to recover from his in-
juries for a month, howeyer, and in
the meantime plans are being are be-
ing made to search for the'se men un-
der his direction. Aside from those in
the balloon part of the Italia, the
searching parties were anxious to
trace three members of the crew who
were with Nobile but who have been
missing since May 30, when they start-
ed aioot for land.
A Swedish plane equipped with
skis made a landin~g Saturday near
Nobile s camp on the ice near Foy'ne
island, a feat which the Italian res-
cue flyers here had thought impos-
sible. A little later his plane took off
with the injured leader, leaving his
five companions. Lieut. Alfredo Vig-
lieri, Frossor F. Behounek, Giuesppe
Bfogi, Filippo Troiano and Natale
Ceccioni still 'stranded on the ice. '
Nobile was carried to Hinlopen
strait, which separates west Spitz-
bergen from Northeast land, where
he was transferred to another Swed-
ish machine, a seaplane, and trans-
forted to Virgo Bay.
LONDON, June 25.-An exchange
Telegram dispatch from Paris quotes
the newspaper L'Information as pub-

the Russian icebreaker Krassin is in
communication with Roald Amundsen
and his five companions missiig in a
French seaplane.
The dispatch said that Russian
aviators would attempt to rescue the
men with a Junkers plane which is
aboard the ice-breaker.
The Krassin sailed from Bergen for
King's Bay, Spitzenbergen, last week
and was to cover virtually the same
route which Amundsen had plannied to

Senator Reed Is Preparing Statement
Regarding Farmers And Voices
Encouragement To Friends

HOUS'TON, Texas, June 2 .-In the face of mounting odds, the
anti-Smith folks, "Jim" Reed, and the dry of the South fought bitterly
against odds today to gain the vital one-third, three hundred sixty-seven
votes necessary to halt Al Smith.
In his quarters high up in the Rice hotel alcove the seething mob
of his incoming delegates, Senator Reed strives for the presidential nom;-

tion, -and voices encouragement to friends who come to him during the
day. Down Main street, Daniel Roper of South Carolina, spokesman of
the anti-Smith' and anti-Tammany faction, was busy in the Lamar hotel
dispatching couriers to the delegations
he hopes to hold in line, and later to-
day he called into session his "steer-

plays with the Michigan Theatre,

hjast ten years, she has been leading,

is much to accident as to his ownI
shrewdness," Professor William Fray-
er of the history department declared
in a lecture delivered yesterday after-
noon at five o'clock in Natural Science
auditorium. Professor Frayer began
his talk by pointing out the effect that
Mussolini's dictatorship is having on
the attitude toward American demo-
cracy. He denied that it will havel
any permanent effect.
"A democracy," he said, "is the most
effective form of government that has
been devised thus far in the history
of government." He admitted that
there were undoubtedly minor de-
fects, but none that could n'ot be
remidied. "Complacency," he de-
clared, "is our greatest danger, be-I
cause it binds us to tfie faults that our
government does possess."
On this basis he sketched Musso-
lini's rise and the growth of his pow-
er. He gave a clear picture of the
Duce as a youth absorbing radical
literature, and stated that be was most,
strongly influenced by four men,
Machiavelli, Nietzsche, Sorell, and Wil-
liam James. He sh'owed that Fascism
was an outgrowth of conditions that
followed the war, and that Mussolini
merely guided the movement. "'Italy
at that time," Professor Frayer stated,
"'was in what might be called an epic
mood, and a change from the existing
bankrupt government was imperative."
He drew a picture of Italy as it ex-
isted 'at that time, and showed the
cause that led up to the change to
"However, the task of building up
the country completed, xa change will
undoubtedly be made to a more libe-
ral form of government. Mussolini
cannot ;ast forever, and his death will
be a certain signal for the change,"
Professor Prayer declared. He con-

centered in the canvass of the Okla-
homa delegation that a "break" for
Smith was in sight.
There was no doubt but that the
pr uhibition announcement yesterday
by the Missouri senator had proved a
basis for a working agreement be-
tween the dry South and Reed's men.
However, both sides stoutly dentied
any coalition. Reed again sent word
to his men that he was not fighting
any particular candidate. All through
: the (lay, however, he declared that
he had to fight Smith if he was to win,.
but he added that he was not oppos-
ing Smith because he was Smith, the
attitude very clearly taken by the
Southerners after Roper.
Roper 'and his men were still work-
inrag under cover during the day.

as to whom constituted their "steer-
lg conimittee," or wlhat their course
of procedure was. Last night Mr.

posed to nullification of the 18th
amendment and to Tammany control

A. review, By Stratton Buck

The Rockford Players opened the
summer dramatic season last evening
in a most satisfactory and gratifying
manner. The first night audience
which filled Sarah Caswell Angell hall
was treated not only to a distinctly
superior performance of an excellent
play, but Professor Rankini was on
hand as well, to give the effort official
university sanction, and to introduce
what he termed "the best company of
players between two coasts." The
production that followed seemed to
justify this superlative praise. "The
Letter" was presented with zest and
finish. Both its melodramatic and
psychological elements were skillfully
handled, and when in the third act the
climax was reached the iluusion of
reality w'as attained to such a degree
that one forgot he was watching a play
at all.
Katherine Wick Kelly in every way
lived up to the advance publicity which
has been given her; this is superla-
tive praise indeed. As Leslie Crosbie,
the character about whom the entire
'story is built, she swept everything be-
fore her, and dominated the stagie from!
curtain to curtain, The part assign-

ed to her was tremendous. Miss Kelly,'
however, developed her role with ar-
tistry and realism throughout, taking
full advantage of all the opportuni-
ties offered ,her. She was forced to
assume a melodramatic tenseness
during almost the entire perofrmance,
and was able to do this in a natural
and inoffensive way. It would be very
easy to overdo Leslie Crosbie. Miss
Kelly's work of last evening promis-
ed a mostodelightful season this sum-
Second only to the dominating Miss
Kelly was Roman Bohnen's splendid
interpretation of Howard Joyce, the
advocate. His work showed talent and
finish. Especially was the audience
made to feel the conflict between Joy-
ce's distaste for the whole unpleasant
business and his desire to shield his
friend, the murdress's husband, from
the truth which would crush him.
("The Letter" is not a delicate story.)
Robert Henderson filled two roles in
his usual excellent fashion. The rest
.of the cast proved itself in every way
capable and adequate, the production
at no time falling from the high
standard set, by the two leads.
