AMSTERDAM, August 10 - All-
American athletes, both women and
men, with but one exception survived
the final round of trials and elimin-
ations today in the Olympic sports
carnival.
While Miss Clarica Hunsburger, a
Los Angeles dver, flunked out of the
highboard competition with a sixth
place in the second division of trials,
Johnny WeismAller, Chicago speed-
ster in the 100 meter free style, help-
ed himself to a new Olympic record
in the semi-finals of that event.
Wei'smuller, ace of the American
swimming forces, ate up his favorite
distance with huge, space-devouring
strokes in 58 ;-5 seconds. With him
in the finals tomorrow will swim the
New York school boy who won both
his preliminary and semi-final heat
easily today and Walter Lofer, of Chi-
cago, victor in the mornings event,
but a good second with the Japanese,
Takaishi, in thel semi-finals third. Lo-
fer swam faster, trailing the far east-
erner, than Kojak did winning his
event.
Girls Take Places
Less impressively, the girls of the
swimming team kept pace with their
sturdier brothers. Miss Elenor Holm,
New York school girl, won her heat
in the 100 meter back stroke for wo-
men and Lysa Lindsom, even young-
er, along with Marion Gilman of Al-
amadaf, Ca.lif., both gained second
places to land in the finals. Miss
Marie Braun, Dutch star, stole most
of the applause and left America with
little hope of final victory when she
stroked the distance in 121 3-5 sec-
onds, a new Olympic record. Later
Miss King of England did 121 flat.
Victory in the 100 meter dash al-
ready is conceded Weismuller, with
Lofer and Kojak likely to complete
the first places on the board
Rowing Teams VIctorious
SLOTEN, Holland, Aug. 10-Capped
by a sensational three-quarters length
triumph for California's famous crew
over the British Thames Rowing club
in the eight-oared finals, America
scored a smashing victory in the
Olympic regatta today.
The Californians, completing an un-
broken season of success, gave the
United States the premier laurels of
the day and also sufficient points to
beat out the nearest rival, Britain.
By the smashing margin of six
lengths, the American double scul-
ling combination of Paul.Costello and
Charles McIlvaine brought their
country its first championship of the
rowing regatta today, outrowing the
Canadians in the final.
The crack Philadelphia double scul-
ling pair came through with their
impressive victory just when Amer-
ican hopes were failing, their single

sculling representative, Ken Meyers,
having been beaten by the Australian,
Bob Pearce, by five length's.

FLORIDA FACES
FLOOD DANGERS
(By Associated Press)
ATLANTA, Ga., Aug. 10.-The
storm which struck Florida recurved
northeastward Thursday night and to-
day was moving with moderate inten-
sity, accompanied by heavy rains,
through south Georgia twoard the At-
lantic coast.
(By Associated Press)
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 10.-
High water accumulating in the wake
of a 48-hour hurricane and heavy rain
harassed Florida today just as the
state began to emerge from partial
temporary paralysis occasioned by
the fury of the winds.
The north end of Lake Okeechobee
in the southeastern part of the state
apparently was the most seriously af-
fected ara and the object of Red
Cross attention. One hundred per-
sons in the'sparsely settled area west
of Jupiter on the east coast were re-
ceiving their first meals in nearly two
days from Red Cross trucks sent in
from West Palm Beach.
Across the state, the huge power
dam at Inglis, one of the largest in
the state, was threatened by high wa-
ter. The dam is on the western fringe '
of the storm area, a hundred miles
north of St Petersburg. ,

night by Prof. Robert T. Crane, act-
ing head of the department.
Mr, Robert Phillips, who is on a
sabbatical leave from Purdue Uni-
versity where he has been teaching I

several courses in the political sci-
ence department in both semesters
of the 1928-29 regular school year.
A second appointment to the staff
of this department is that of Mr. Carl
Preuss, who graduated from this uni-
versity in 1927. Mr. Preuss has been
doing graduate work on the campus
since his graduation, and has been
in Ann Arbor all summer. He was
assistant to Prof. Thomas A. Reed In
International Law last year.
There will be but one new appoint-
ment to the staff of the department
of speech for the coming' school year,
according to a statement given out
yesterday by Prof. James B. O'Neill,
head of the department. The new

who is at present doing graduate
work in the summer school here. Mr.
Riley came here from the University
of California where he had special-
ized in speech work. He will teach

considered by all those interested as
very successful. Under the direction

next year. It is planned to have such

Summed Session students will have
an opportunity to see the quality ofI
work done along artistic lines here
next Monday and Tuesday, when the
summer outdoor sketching class
taught by Prof. Jean Paul Slusser of
the architectural school will hold its1

This is the only course in drawing

are ideal for sketching and the qual-l

Subjects close at hand have formed
the chief inspiration for the sum-

scenes, views of the new Women's
League building now under construc-
tion, and bits from Palmer and Ferry
fields make up the bulk of the ma-
terial treated, although there are
some impressions of Lower Town,
glimpses of the river or studies of
old barns and quaint old-fashioned
houses. Most of the work has been
done in water color, but several of
the students are interested in old and
one or two in etching. A group of
dry-point etchings will be among the
exhibits.

IS FIFTY-FOURTH BIRTHDAY
Entertained By News Correspondents
And Photographers In Banquet
At Palo Alta Hotel
(By Associated Press)
STANFORD UNIVERSITY, Aug. 10.
-Awaiting formal notification tomor-
row in this University's mammoth
athletic field, Herbert Hoover cele-
brted the fifty-fourth anniversary
of his birth today by applying him-
self a little more closely than usual
to the task set for him by the Repub-
lican party in making him its 1928
Presidential standard bearer.
From early morning until late
afternoon he was engaged in a round
of political conferences with Dr. Hu-
bert Work, Chairman of the Repub-
lican National Committee; Senator
George M. Moses of New Hampshire.
one of the party leaders in the East
and others high in the Republican
councils who gathered here on the eve
of the notification ceremony.
Attends Press Banquet
At the end of the day, however, he
laid aside his duties to be the guest
of newspaper correspondents and
news photographers at a birthday
banquet at the Palo Alto hotel. Later
he returned home to end the day with
relatives.
Mr. Hoover began the day with a
conference with .Dr. Work, who ar-
rived last night. For several hours
the two studied reports brought west
by Dr. Work, after which they visited
the Univerity Stadium to test the
amplifiers set up for tomorrow's cere-
mony.
Dr. Work, Governor Fischer of
Pennsylvania, and Senator Moses
were luncheon guests, after which Mr.
Hoover conferred with the New
Hampshire Senator over political
conditions in the eastern state.
Leaders Silent On Plans
Both Dr. Work and Senator Moses
were silent concerning their confe-
ences with Mr. Hoover. The former
sent word to newspapermen that he
had nothing to add to statements he
had made in Chicago and elsewhere.
He did not reveal the nature of the
reports he had brought Mr. Hoove.
Governor Fischer confidently predict-
ed that there would bo no change in
the political complection of Penii-
sylvania and that the state would
stand staunchly Republican in the
forthcoming election. The Repub-
licans were presenting a solid front,
he said, while there already had been
deflections in the Democratic r.nks,
the most important being that of
Vance McCormick, Harrisburg pub-
lisher and former Chairman of the
Democratic National Committee.
Neither Hoover or Moses would ac-
cept the letter to the Republican nom
inee by Charles R. Burrill, Repub-
lican Candidate for Lieutenant Gov-
ernor of Massachusetts, demanding
the resignation of Moses as Eastern
Campaign Manager. When Moses was
asked if he had any comment, the
Secretary advised him to say noth-
ing.
TALK ON MEXICO

"Our Mexican Neighbors" is the
title of a lecture to be delivered at
5 o'clock Monday afternoon in Nat-

ural Science auditorium by H. I
Priestley, professor of Mexican hiw-
tory at the University of California,

who has been on the faculty of the
Summer Sesson. The lecture will be
illustrated by motion pictures.
An earlier lecture by Prof. Priest-
ley was to have beenn illustrated,
but at that time the film's had failed
