LOS ANGELES, July 30.-(P)-The
tumult and shouting, the oratory
and Paavo Nurmi, Finland's banish-
ed "martyr," will blend into the
background' of a record-smashing
battle for Olympic athletic honors
tomorrow. y
Gathered from the far corners of
the globe, the speed and brawn,
skill and endurance of close to 2,000
y athletes representing 39 nations will
compete in a kaleidoscsopic whirl of
sporting activity unprecedented in
°Olympic history%
Records i Danger
In their wake, over a stretch of
two unbroken weeks of action in 16
sports, it is confidently expected
that Father Time and Old Man Dis-
tance will be left dizzily contem-
plating a veritable wreckage of re-
ords.
The main attack on existing stand-
ards will b launched Sunday- after-
noon in track and field sports, long
the blue-ribbon feature of the Qlym-
pics,
Six of the grand total of 23 track
and field contests will furnish the
chief attraction for perhaps 100,000
onlookers in the huge Olympic Stad-
ium. Finals will take place i the
high jump, shot put and 1000-
meter- rdn, ,in addition to triam in
the 100-meter dash, 400-meter hur-
dles and 800-meter run.
The shotput world record should
be blasted loose by either of the out-
standing favorites, Leo Sexton, of
the United States, or Frantisek Dou-
da, of Czechoslovakia.
- Sprint to Show Chances
The two series of 100-meter elimi-
nations should indicate clearly just
how high America's hopes may be
raised in the attempt of Ralph Met
calfe, George Simpson and Edie
Tolan to restore sprinting pres ige
lost by this Country in the last two
Olympiads.
The high jump should be a sweep
for the United States, with' either
Rob van Osdel or George Spitz the
victor, and the rugged young sons
of Findland, Iso-Hollo and Virtanen,
figure to lead the 10,000-meter pack
in the absence of their renowned
compatriot, Nurmi, barred fromthe
Games on charges of professionalism
two days ago-.
In both the hurdles and 800 .e-
ters, the American entries figure to
make a good showing, but they will
be up against the keenest sort of
competition to survive the prelim-
inaries. Uncle Sam's main hopes
may rest on the veteran Morgan
Taylor, holder of the 400-meter hur-
dles record, and Eddie Genung, the
slim National half--mie champion.
In fact the whole track and field
prospect, for eight consecutive days,
presents the most rugged sort of a
tussle for the Americans in their
fight to keep the team championship
they have held ever since the Olym-
pics were revived in 1896.
Von Gronau orced
To Land on Lake by

Broken Water Pipe
DETROIT, July 30.-Capt. Wolf-
gang von Gronau, the German flyer
who has three times crossed the At-
lantic by the northern route, arrived
in Detroit at the end of a tow rope
Saturday afternoon. He had been
forced down in Lake St. Clair.
A broken water pipe Was responsi-
ble for the forced landing of his big
flying boat, the Groenland-Wal-a
descent that was fortunately made
on water, 'the plane not being
equipped to alight on land.
Von Gronau and his three com-
panions, Lieut. Gheft von Roth, co-
pilot; Fritz Albrecht, radio operator
and Frank Hack, mechanic, will re-
main in Detroit for, at least a day
possibly longer. They had intended
to stop only an hour ou their flight
from Ottawa to Detroit.

Roosevelt Opens
Drive With Plea
For Legal Beer
ALBANY, N. Y., July 30-()-
Gov. Franklin D. Roosevelt launched
his drive for the presidency tonight
with a contention that the main is-
sue of the campaign is economic re-
lief and a declaration that he will
call on the next Congress, if he is
elected, to legalize the sale of beer.
The Democratic nominee, making
his first speech since the acceptance
address at Chicago on July 2, said:
"It is not enough to day that when
prosperity is restored we shall then
consider how to avoid repeating all
the old errors. Today we recognize
these errors. Today they should be
outlawed for all time to come."
The foreign debt situation, Mr.
R o o s e v e 1 t declared, "has been
brought, measurably near a solution
by the recent results at Lausanne."
Mr. Roosevelt made no reference
to linking the foreign debt situation
with a reduction of disrmament
which has been advocated by Presi-
dent Hoover and Senator Borah, Re-
publican chairman of the Senate
foreign relations committee.
Speaking over the radio and seat-
ed at the desk in his study, the Dem-
ocratic nominee quoted freely from
the party platform which he called
'"forthright and genuine-honest to
the core."
"Even the partisan press has found
it hard to criticize the Democratic
platform this year," he said.

' A close-up ,on prisoners and prison
life will be afforded Summer Session
students next Saturday when the
final. University tour for the term
is conducted to the Michigan State
Prison at Jackson.
After -the party arrives at the
prison, officers will conduct the stu-
dents through the iron-barred trlple-
gate entrance and around a five-
deck cell block. The second build-
ing to be visited, the textile plant
lies across the prison yard, beyond
the athletic field.
500 Are Employed
More than 500 inmates are em-
ployed in the plant. Here the raw
cotton is variously processed to make
thread for fabrics, such as overall
material, sheeting, blankets and
shirting. Returning across the yard,
the party will inspect the auditorium
and motion picture theatre, the cafe-
teria dining hall, the kitchens and
bakery, and the Service building. In
this last building are housed the po,
bed hospital, the school, and the
prison offices.
During the hour and a half at the
prison there will be opportunity to
ask questions of Capt. S. Hatch,
the prison official in charge. At the
prison office a pamphlet may be se-
cured at a nominal price containing
the history of the prison and rele-
vant statistics concerning the char-
acter of the crimes committed, the
race and nativity of the prisoners,
the trades and occupations repre-
sented by the prison population, the
amount of ediucation possessed by
the inmates, and similar data.
Fare Is $1.00
Reservations for the trip must be
made before Friday in room 9, Uni-
versity Hall. The party leaves at
7:45 o'clock from in front of Angell
Hall, returning to Ann Arbor shortly
after 12 o'clock noon. The bus fare
will be $1.

cess. The attendance at these par-
ties has been excellent and we would
like to climax the summer program,
as far as tea dances are concerned,

Republic's Fate at Stake
As Cry for Monarchy Is
Raised by Hugenberg
BERLIN, July 30.- (P) -With
bloodshed, and blistering oratory,
Germany today closed the campaign
for tomorrow's momentous electiqns,
which will result in an entirely new
Reichstag and may decide whether
the Nation will choose the paths of
dictatorship or monarchy or remain
in the way of Republicanism.
Durinig the, closing hours of the
campaign, five, persons were killed
in political brawls in the Provinces.
Here in Berlin, 250 persons were ar-
rested for taking part in street fights.
The army stood ready to act in
case of major disorders tomorrow
and the entire Berlin police force
of 20,000 was under mobilization or-
ders.
Broadcasting facilities were turn-
ed over tonight to. Kail Severing,
who was ousted as Prussian Minis-
ter of Interior when the Federal
Government established a dictator-
ship ove the Reich's most import-
ant State. His speech was a fervent
appeal for democracy. It came at
the conclusion of a bitterly contested
campaign in which Adolf Hitler,
chieftain of the Fascist National So-
cial Party, has declared exactly as
emphatically that democracy must
end with tomorrow's voting, and Dr.
Alfred Hugenberg, leader of the Na-
tiopalist Party, has asserted with
equal vehemence that Germany's
salvation lies in restoring the mon-
archy.
"Democracy is the, safest and
most worthy form of government
for a grownup people. We, Social
Democrats, naturally are not satis-
fied' with everything that has hap-
pened in our 'young democracy, bu
that is no reason for abandoning it.'
The fact that the entire world is
interested in the election was driven
home to Germans by an announce-
ment that the United §tates, Grea
Britain, France, Italy,. Russia,' Nor.
way, Sweden and Denmark hav
t applied for special arrangements un

gder which the results will be broad;
r cast tomorrow night.
