Three salient points were cited by
McClusky in favor of the Soviet gov-
ernment balanced by three adverse
points. As the favorable items, Mc-
Clusky pointed to the faith of the
Soviet government in the capability
of the masses, their thorough-going
democracy for the underdog, and the
enthusiasm, especially of the young
Communists. This enthusiasm, he
said, stood out in marked contrast
to our own "jaded sophistication
and super-cultured atmosphere par-
ticularly in Ann Arbor, where those
who are supposed to represent the1
intelligentsia find such a hard time
entertaining themselves at bridge,
golf, etc."
Lists Unfavorable Points
The unfavorable points listed by
Professor McClusky included tyran-
nical methods of the Soviet officials,.
(everything including the teaching of
psychology "going through the Marx-

munists to recognize individual dif-
ferences, and the theory of revolu-

To Aid New York Mayor
NEW YORK, Aug. 10.-(P)-A last
minute move to halt the removal of
Mayor J. Walker before Gov. Roose-
velt tomorrow failed this afternoon
just as the mayor set out for Aban
amid cheering, shouting crowds.
After a brief hearing in the Bronx,
Supreme Court, Justice John E. Mc-
Geehan dismissed the application for
a writ of prohibition to prevent the
Governor fromshearing the charges.
The move was not made by the
mayor, but by George Donnelly, sec-
retary of the Bronx Chamber of
Commerce, a "home rule" advocate.
Donnelly's attorney left Albany to
renew the application before the
court there.
A few boos and hisses were drowned
in the din of applause as Walker pro-
ceeded down the aisle. Friendly
hands thrust between the broad
shoulders of police to shake his or
pat him on the back.
The crowd clapped and cheered
when a man on the fringe of the
crowd uttered an isolated boo, a
Walker supporter wheeled angrily
and let fly at his nose. The dissen-
ter recoiled in amazement and disap-

MADRID, Aug. 10.-(lP)-Monarch-
ist leaders of the army, who rose in
rebellion today against the sixteen-
months-old Republic of Spain, head-
ed by Alcala Zamora, failed in an
attempt to seize the principal gov-
ernment offices in Madrid after street
fighting in which at least eight per-
sons were killed, but they captured
the city of Seville.
Tonight the entire nation was
under what amounted to martial law.
Loyal troops were being concentrated
for an attack on Seville from the
north, and 200 persons were under
arrest for participating in the rebel-
Report Bombardment
There was a report from Seville
that Federal planes were bombarding
the city.
A squadron flew from Madrid to
distribute over Seville copies of a
proclamation from the government
and from congress. The proclama-
tion said:
"Citizens of Seville: A movement
was fully blocked in Madrid this
morning, and the government au-
thorities have a r r e s t e d Generals
Goded and Calvalcanti and Fernan-
dez Perez, who were among the lead-
ers of the movement. All Spain has
reported to the government that it is
faithful to the present regime. The
country is awaiting your answer."
Alfonso Not Concerned
-The principal' leader of the Royal-
ist revolt appeared to be Gen. Jose
Sanjurjo, commander of the Civil
Guard when the monarchy was over-
thrown in April, 1931, whose loyalty
to the republic frequently has been
suspected. It was Gen. Sanjurjo who
escorted former Queen Victoria to
exile when she followed the ousted
Alfonso XIII out of Spain.
Alfonso apparently was not asso-
ciated with the movement. The for-
mer king was hunting deer near
Koenigswart, Czechoslovakia, while
the Spanish authorities were moving
against the rebels.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 10.-(AP)-
The Manchurian question was the
topic in a long conference today be-
tween Secretary Stimson and Am-
bassador Debuchi, of Japan. It was
indicated they touched upon the
speech of the Secretary last Monday
night in which he laid strong em-
phasis upon t h e Kellogg-Briand
Peace Pact as a vehicle for the na-
tions of the world to rally around in
mobilizing opinion against aggressive
The Ambassador said he had re-
ceived no instructions from his Gov-
ernment to seek of the Secretary in-
formally his reasons for the speech
but called to say goodby before sail-
ing for Japan on a visit of a few
From Tokio, however, came word
of bitter criticism and an assertion
by a foreign office spokesman that
if the other powers approved the
meanings read by Stimson into the
peace treaty it might be necessary
for Japan to repudiate her signature.
In the speech, made at a time
when a report is impending by a
League of Nations Commission on
its study of the Manchurian inva-
sion, Stimson asserted that no agree-
ment would be recognized that was
brought about by violation of the
Kellogg-Briand Treaty. Forty-nine
other nations had voted for the
adoption of a League of Nations res-'
olution embodying the same princi-

Von Hindenburg Agrees
That the Responsibility
Would Render Hitler
More Innocuous
BERLIN, Aug. 10.-(P)-Adolf Hit-
ler, former Austrian paperhanger
who has made his National Social-
ist Party the most powerful political
organization in Germany, seemed to-
night to be within striking distance
of the Chancellorship.
Chancellor Franz von Papen re-
quested leaders of the Centrist Party
to call on him tomorrow and discuss
their attitude toward turning the
most important post in the Govern-
ment over to the fiery Nazi.
Centrists May Turn
The Centrists,, who are known for
their political astuteness, may forget
their opposition to Germany's count-
erpart of Mussolini and agree to tol-
erate Hitler as Chancellor, provided
all power is not surrendered to the
National Socialist Party.
Persons in position to know assert-
ed that the Centrists and President
Paul von Hindenburg were agreed
on one thing-that Hitler, as chief
of a coalition cabinet, would be far
more innocuous than he is as the
leader Of a movement which has no
politicl respdnsib.llty
,O.Meets Von Papen
President von Hindenburg return-
ed this afternoon from his summer
estate at Neudeck, East Prussia.
Chancellor von Papen saw him im-
mediately, informing him of the lat-
est political developments.
The President also heard about
the events of the last week from Otto
Meissner, presidential secretary, who
played an important behind-the-
scenes part in the ousting of the
Cabinet of Dr. Heinrich Bruening.
Seeks Assurances
It seemed apparent that the aged
Field Marshal had no intention of
simply turning the Government over
to Hitler without assurances that
legality and constitutionality would
be upheld.
President von Hindenburg' is not
going to return to Neudeck immedi-
ately. Instead, he will remain in Ber-
lin until Chancellor von Papen's ne-
gotiations with party leaders have
been completed and the makeup o
the future Government has been def-
initely determined.
Berlin took the prospect of a Hit.
ler chancellorship with complet
calmness. The expectation was thai
Gen. Kurt von Schleicher would re
main in command of the Army a

things in hand.

University of California
Boat Advances to Final
Trials on Saturday
Caal., Aug. 10.-(/)-The undefeated
University of California eight-oared
crew, representing the United States,
scored a smashing victory over Can-
ada today in the Olympic regatta
trials, thereby clinching a place in
the finals. The Americans won by
nearly a length in 6 min., 29 secs.
for the 2,000-meter course.
The big California crew, intercol-
legiate and national title holders,
drew away from Canada in an ex-
citing finish, after being separated
by barely a deck length most of the
Germany's team came strong at
the finish to beat New Zealand for
third place in the feature race of the
day, witnessed by a cheering crowd
of 20,000 spectators.
The Canadians were timed in
6:33112, Germany in 6:36 4-5 and New
Zealand in 3:38 1-5.
Canada got a slight jump at the
offset of the race but was quickly
overhauled by the Americans who
gained a slight lead at the half-way
mark and kept it until they spurted
away at the close.
The time registered by Italy's sur-
prise crew victory over Great Britain
in the first eight-oar heat was slight-
ly faster than that made by the
Americans. The Italians establised
themselves as a real threat by win-
ning in 6:28 and 1-5.

These are busy days for a cam-
paign manager.
At least, Martin Mol, manager for
Charles. A. Sink, has found them so.
Last' night, he spoke before the
Detroit, Republican Club at their an-
nual moonlight to Bob-lo Island, and
discussed the issues of the campaign
in general. Tuesday afternoon, he
presented a short talk to the Wo-
men's Republican Club of Detroit at
a meeting at Belle Isle.
Tuesday at noon, Mol was a
speaker at the weekly meeting of
the Detroit Kiwanis club in the Stat-
ler hotel. Senator James Couzens
also spoke at the meeting.
Between times, Mol is directing the
activities of the Detroit Sink head-
quarters in the Statler. An office in
Ann Arbor also takes considerable
Mr. Sink, himself, finds the days
more than strenuous. Exact plans
for the next three weeks have not
been announced but he has just re-

Unusual is the play offered at the
Lydia Mendelssohn theatre for the
remaining evenings of this week.
"Tour du Monde," or "Around the
World in 80 Days," is whirlwind mel-'
odrama from the pens of Jules Verne
and Alphonse d'Ennery. The play is
packed with action and there are
many laughs in the heroics of the
melodrama, although Director Stev-
ens has wisely produced it in the
mood in which it was written rather
than in the common slap-stick revi-
val style. Elephants on the stage,
moving trains, sinking ships, all are
shown in the mood of the old melo-
drama. Last night's audience thor-
oughly enjoyed the spectacle.

It is evident to the audience that
this production could never have
been presented except for the rare
skill of two great directors on the
summer staff. Thomas Wood Stevens,
whose abilities as a director are
known throughout the country, has
made a new version of "Tour du
Monde," permitting the change in
action and the change in scenery to
move rapidly along in full view of
the audience; the effect is startling.
Alexander Wyckoff, art director for
the Players, has clearly demonstrat-
ed his leadership in the field of thea-
trical design. He has accomplished
almost an impossible task in this
production. Combining the talents of
