Conditions to Offer to

lin Atmosphere
BERLIN, Aug. 11.-(P)-President
Paul von Hindenburg, confronted
with a rising tide of fascism and the
menace of Adolph Hitler's mobiliz-
ing "storm troops," will grant an au-
dience to Hitler tomorrow to offer
him the Chancellorship of Germany.
The rapid developments of the last
few days have brought the fascist
leader at last to his goal. Von Hin-
d'enburg, however, was expected to
attach four conditions to his offer,
and it was doubted if Hitler would
accept the terms.
The conditions are:
1-The constitution must be re-
2-The fascist militia must not be
employed as auxiliary police.
3-There must be no equality be-
tween the fascist militia and the
Reichswehr, or regular army.
4-There must be no party gov-
ernment relying on the "storm" de-
tachments for support.
Constitution Day Observed
Great s spense prevailed over the
outcome O the audience. Von Hin-
denburg will first do his utmost to
persuade Hitler to renounce his claim
to the Chancellorship, and' agree
merely to Nazi participation in the
cabinet. Hitler was not expected to

Constitution Day was celebrated in
the Reichstag chamber in the pres-1
ence of Von Hindenburg, the 'cabi-

foreign diplomats.-
They heard Chancellor Franz von
Papen and Baron Wilhelm von Gayl,,
interior minister, make speeches

There was striking irony in the
monarchist-minded government com-

a deadly enemy of Democracy-was

Unknown Woman Offers
To Take Care of House
If Sanction Is Refused
A technicality in the University

housing project of the Student So-

cialist club as a result of an offer
yesterday by a woman, whose identi-
ty was not revealed, to take over the
management of the projected living
The women, it is understood, has
offered to provide a large house with
room and board for two dollars a
week. She will personally super-
vise the management of the estab-
lishment. Her offer will only be ef-
fective if the University rules against
the original plan for a co-operative
house where members would do their
own cooking and share in the cost.
Club members continued to protest
against such a ruling by the Univer-
sity. One member stated that the
project would draw only those stu-
dents who were unable to return to
school otherwise and would conse-
quently produce "no delicate disturb-
ance in the room and board situation
as it now stands in Ann Arbor."

Walker Takes
Stand A(,ainst
His .Accusers
Denies Bribe of $26,000
From Taxicab Interests;
Attacks Seabury
ALBANY, N. Y., Aug. 11.-(I)-
Fighting for his political life, Mayor
James J. Walker, of New York City,
today brushed aside the advice of
counsel and dramatically defended
his administration at an ouster hear-
ing before Gov. Roosevelt.7
This and the Governor's announce-
ment he would give "due consider-
ation" to calling any witness eitherl
side wished to have testify were the
two most striking developments ofI
the first day's hearing.1
Jumping to his feet as John J.
Curtin, his attorney, sought the rightI
to cross-examine Walker's accusers,
the Mayor took the stand to explain
what Samuel Seabury, investigator
for the Hofstadter Legislative Com-
mittee, claims was misconduct. <
He denied he was -given $26,000 int
bonds in return for his support ofE
legislation favorable to the Parma-j
lee taxicab interests.
Roosevelt, leaning across the broad1
desk at which he sat, questioned the
Mayor. Walker, earnest and with
never a semblance of the witticism
that has made him famous, replied
in a husky voice that sometimest
quavered with emotion.
"I haven't had the right to cross-
examine witnesses," said Walker. "If
I don't have it here-" He paused,
his arms fell to his side, and his eyes
for a second reached those of his
wife, who, across the chamber, twist-
ed a wilted handkerchief in her
hands-"it means the end of amcareer
to which I have given my life."
"There must be some place for
me," he cried, hunched across his
counsel table and looking directly
at Roosevelt. "I can't be driven out
this way without a chance to look
into the face of my accusers. If this
is to continue, out goes reputation,
out goes past and future."
Seabury, who had calmly looked
around the chamber during Walker's
testimony, interrupted, to ask about
one of-the Mayor's bank accounts.
When the Mayor said the account
was his wife's, although in his name,
Seabury asked if he had not trans-.
ferred $3,000 from it to another ac-
"Of course I did," Walker replied

Michigan Grid
Team to Face
Hard Schedule
Michigan State and North-
western Games to Open
Suicide CGard This Fall
Michigan's football schedule, which,
will open October 1 this year with]
Michigan State, promises to be one
of the toughest a Wolverine team
has faced in a long time.
The following week, October 8, the
Maize and Blue will have to face I
Northwestern, also at Ann Arbor.;
This means two hard games in a row,
for Coach Harry Kipke, for the;
Lansing boys have held Michigan to
a scoreless tie for two years now.
Ohio State will play host to the
Wolverine squad at Columbus on
October 15, while Illinois will come
to Ann Arbor the following week-
end. October 29 will see the annual
intersectional battle, Princeton and
Michigan representing the East and
Middlewest this time.
Kipke will travel with his charges
for the second time on November 5
when he visits Indiana at Blooming-
ton. The one apparently soft spot on
the whole schedule where the grid-
ders may get some sort of a layoff
is on November 12 when Chicago
comes here to play. Minnesota will
conclude the season for the Wolver-
ines, who will play away from home
the week-end of November 19.
The schedule is as follows:
Oct. 1-M. S. C.
Oct. 8-Northwestern.
Oct. 15-Ohio, there.
Oct. 22-Illinois.
Oct. 29-Princeton.
Nov. 5-Indiana, there.

feated Clarence Crabbe, United States
and Jean Taris, France, in the first
preliminary heat of the 1,500-meter
free-syle for men.
James Cristy, of Michigan Univer-
sity, won the second heat by a wide

champion from Australia, and Sunao
Ishibarada, Japan.
Another Record Falls'
Swimming high out of the water,
Kitamura was third at the half-way
mark, with Crabbe first and Taris
second, but at the 1,000-meter mark
he pulled into the lead and was 15
yards ahead at the finish.
Crabbe, who won the 400-meter
free style finals from Taris yester-
day in Olympic record time, staged1
a terrific race with the Frenchman1
for secondd and third place today,t
with Crabbe second by inches. Kit-
amura's time was 19 minutes 55.2t
Some eight thousand persons wit-
nessed the morning event, which saw1

Crabbe led his French opponent by
two yards from the 1,000 meter mark:
on until the last lap, when Taris
came with a rousing finish, which fell
short of beating Crabbe only by
inches as the United States swimmer1
answered the challenge. t
Ellmann Lauds
Mayor Murphy
Socialist Speaker Tells of
Long Fight for .Free
Speech and Assembly
Arrangements for a radio talk at
5:30 o'clock yesterday prevented the
appearance of Judge Patrick O'Brien,

candidate for the Democratic nomin-
ation for governor, at the open for-
um of the Socialist club. James Ell-
mann, Detroit, member of the Amer-
ican Civil Liberties Union, spoke, in-
stead, on "Civil Liberties."
Ellmann praised the Supreme Court
bench for its present composition.
The fight which Judges Holmes and
Brandeis carried on as only a min-
ority for years now has the backing
a majority of five, he said.
He described the work of the Un-
ion in Detroit and its efforts to pro-
vide open forums and freedom of
press and speech through a long pro-
cess of education of police commis-
sioners and officials. The case of the
forum in Grand Circus park and an-
other case of a prohibited parade by
Hindus in protest of the actions of
the British government were cited.
"Mayor Murphy, of Detroit, has
demonstrated to the country that the
rights of freedom of the press, speech
and assembly are important rights
which must be preserved at all costs,"
The Civil Liberties Union, he said,
is called upon for all kinds of deci-

Change; No Repec~r

Views of Hoover
And Roosevelt on
Prohibition Issue
(By Associated Press)
Here is a condensed summary of
the prohibition utterances of the riv-
al presidential candidates, President
Hoover and Governor Roosevelt.
Mr. Hoover, in his acceptance
speech last night, said:
"It is my belief that in order to
remedy present evils a change is
necessary by which we resummon a
proper share of initiative and re-
sponsibility which the very essence
of our government demands shall
rest upon the states and local au-
thorities. That change must avoid
the return of the saloons.
"It is my conviction that the na-
ture of this change is that each state
shall be given the right to deal with
the problem as it may determine but
subject to guarantee in the constitu-
tion of the United States to protect
each state from interference and in-
vasion by its neighbors, and that in
no part of the United States shall
there be a return of the saloon sys-
tem with its inevitable political and
social corruption and its organized
interference with other states.
"I do not favor the repeal of the
18th amendment. I stand for effi-
cient enforcement of the laws en-
acted there under."
"Our country has deliberately un-
dertaken a great social and economic
experiment, noble in motive and far-
reaching in purpose. It must be
worked out constructively."
"Common sense compels us to real-
ize that grave abuses have occurred
-abuses which must be remedied.
An organized searching investigation
of fact and causes can alone deter-
mine the wise method of determin-
ing them.
What Mr. Hoover said in transmit-
ting the Wickersham commission
prohibition report to Congress:
"The commission by a large major-
ity does not favor the repeal of the
18th amendment as a method of cure
for the inherent abuses of the liquor
traffic. I am in accord with this view.
"I am in unity with the spirit of
the report in seeking constructive
steps to advance the national ideal
of eradication of the social, economic
and political abuses of this traffic, to
preserve the gain which has 'been
made and to eliminate the abuses
which exist, at the same time facing
with an open mind the difficulties
which have arisen under the experi-
What Franklin D. Roosevelt said
in accepting the Democratic presi-
dential nomination.
"This convention wants repeal.
Your candidate wants repeal. And I
am confident that the United States
of America wants repeal.
"I say to you now that from this
date on the 18th amendment is
doomed. When that happens, we as
Democrats must and will rightly and
morally enable the states to protect
themselves against the importation
of intoxicating liquors where such
importation may violate their laws.
We must rightly and morally prevent
the return of the saloon."
Subsequently, Mr. Roosevelt in a
speech said: "If the present Con-
gress takes no action, I shall urge the
new Congress to carry out these pro-

The selected 4,000, who received
tickets, took no chances on losing
their seats. While the chief execu-

eral blocks away, only a few vacant
chairs dotted the big hall.
Many Arrive Early
In Continental Hall, 100 yards
away and connected by a long corri-
dor, a similar "come early" policy
prevailed. The smaller auditorium,
seating only 2,000, was the scene of
Calvin Coolidge's acceptance address
in 1924.
The over-flow audience in Contin-
ental Hall listened to proceedings
through loud speakers.
Well before 9 o'clock when a group
of the principals in the ceremony
walked onto the stage of Constitu-
tional Hall, a mild round of ap-
plause greeted them.

his acceptance speech last night:
Favors a change in prohibition
laws "to remedy present evils."
Oppose cancellation of war debts,
Favors a protective tariff.

Rebel Leader
Republicans Riot

(See Story on Page 3)
MADRID, Aug., 11.--(P)-Mobs in
Seville today took their vengeance on
monarchist sympathizers for yester-
day's short-lived revolt against the
Republic, which collapsed when its
leader, Gen. Jose Sanjurjo, fled the
City and was captured while trying
to reach the border.
While the rioters were burning
buildings and bombing homes in Se-
ville, the Government proceeded with
"mopping up" operations against the
Frevolutionaries, the rest of Spain
gave itself over to public celebrations
in honor of the young Republic's
hardihood in its first great test.
Gen. Sanjurjo, who complained
that "everybody abandoned me and
my undertaking," was on his way
to Madrid from Huelva, where he
was arrested early today after he
asked a guard to show him the best,
way to Portugal.
President Niceto Alcala Zamora
presided over a Cabinet session at
which the punishment for the rebel
general was discussed.

Sells Sees Hitler as Possible
William J. Bryan of Germany

That Adolf Hitler, leader of the
German Nazis, might prove to be the
William Jennings Bryan of Germany
was the forecast yesterday of Prof.
Roger Wells, professor of German
government from Bryn Mawr.
"Hitler should be given his day in
court," Professor Wells said, "and
there will probably be no more favor-
able occasion than now when this
may be accomplished by constitu-
tional means. Perhaps he may prove
to be a real statesman, but he may
show himself to the people as an ex-
cellent campaigner who is of little
use, in the chancellorship."
A constant danger exists, he con-
tinued, that some of the "wild men"
of the Hitlerites may break from the
rule of their leader, and he suggest-

army to the National Socialists with
simply a wave of the hand nor can I
believe that the present government
as a group will turn over everything
to the Hitlerites."
Hitler will- be offered, Professor
Wells said, the chancellorship and
some minor posts. He may be satis-
fied with this, or he may be given
in addition more freedom in Prussia.
"The Prussian situation," he point-
ed out, "would bring Hitler into di-
rect opposition with the national
minister of the interior and prob-
ably with the national defense min-
istry. The outcome of such a con-
flict is unpredictable."
Although Hitler has the largest
party in the German Reich at the
present time, he has no right to claim
