BERLIN, Aug. 1.-(IP)-Reichsfueh-
rer Adolf Hitler, attired in a brown
uniform and smiling genially, for-
mally launched the 11th Olympics to-
day amid ceremonies dazzlingly bfil-
liant despite dripping skies marked
by vividly contrasting demonstrations
obviously fraught with political as'
well as sporting significance..
An overflow crowd of 105,000
packed the massive, double-decked
concrete stadium to see the record-
breaking gathering of nearly 4,500
athletes representing fifty nations

NEW YORK, Aug. 1.-()-
With the 1936 Olympics under 3
way, there will be daily transmis-
sions from overseas by American
networks. The schedule for Sun-
day: 10,000-meter run finals,
WEAF-NBC 11:45 a.m. and
WABC-CBS 11:30; summaries,
WABC-CBS at 4 p.m., WJZ-NBC
at 5 and WEAF-NBC at 6:15.,
take the Olympic oath during an im-
pressive two hour program splashed
with color, rain drops jand mass en-
thusiasm that reached its peak whenI
French and Austrian athletes gave
the Nazi salute. while passing the
chancellor's reviewing box.
The big United States delegation,
surpassed in size only by the Ger-
mans who formed the procession as
rear guard, was accorded a doubtful
reception. Changing plans suddenly
overnight to avoid the appearance
of giving only a modified Nazi salute
under the original intentions to ex-
tend arms with hats in hand, the
Americans reverted to the former
custom of doffing their hats and plac-
ing them over the heart while giving
"eyes right."
This change, coupled with tradi-
tional obedience to regulations bar-
ring the American flag from being
dipped, apparently contributed to the
character of the crowd's reception,
which was noisily enthusiastic but not
comparable with the welcome accord-
ed those who seemed entirely willing
to adopt the slogan: "When in Rome
do as the Romans do."
Hitler, who stood throughout the
parade returning national salutes, re-
peatedly acknowledged F r a n c e's
friendly greeting while thunderous
cheers virtually rocked the stadium.
The demonstration was repeated for
the athletes of Austria, where not so
long ago anyone detected giving the
Nazi salute was liable to imprison-
Only four leaders of the Czecho-
slovakian delegation gave the Nazi
salute while the rest of the group
turned their faces toward Hitler.
The highest Olympi.c traditions were
upheld by the spectacle which even
the weather aided after threatening
early gestures. The last big shower
fell just before Chancellor Hitler en-
tered the stadium with high Nazi of-
ficials, Count Henri Baillet-Latour,
president of the International Olym-
pic Committee, and the remainder of
the top-hatted international commit-
The rain held off throughout the
spectacular parade and the formal-
ities which included a speech by Dr.
Theodor Lewald, president of the
German organizing committee, Hit-
ler's proclamation opening the games,
the blond German Olympic middle-
weight weight-lifting champion, Ru-
dolf Ismayr's taking the oath in be-
half of all athletes, and the pictur-
esque lighting of the Olympic fire by
a German runner bearing the torch
ceremoniously"relayed from Olympia,
Even drab skies tried apologetically
to break apart as guns boomed, 30,000
pigeons were released, a chorus of 1,-
500 voices resounded with the thrill-
ing strains of the "Hallelujah Chorus"

Tourist Convention
SANDUSKY, O., Aug. 1.-(W)-The
Rovers, who park their houses where-
ever fancy dictates, started rolling in-
to Sandusky tonight for the annual
summer conclave of the Tin Can
Tourists of the World.
The customary technique of this
organization is to equip a house on
wheels-in the form of a trailer-
hitch it to the family automobile,
and light out for the horizon.
The prevalence of streamlining, hot
and cold water and fancy gadgets in
these caravans belies the humble con-
notation of the organization's name.
Less than ten years ago the Tin
Can Tourists organized in Florida,
and at that time, the roamer's break-
fast, lunch and dinner were not far
removed from the tin can. Since
then the traveling cuisine has im-
Some of the ultra modern land
yachts coming in here are in the up-
per bracket, financially speaking. One
custom built coach, owned by a re-
tired business man who withheld his
name, has three rooms.
With the owner and his wife travel
a maid and a chauffeur. Out on the
road, the latter gets his orders by
telephone from the master's lounge.
"I guess it's the gypsy in me," re-
marked the owner.
The conclave officially opens Mon-
day, for two weeks, with preparations
made for 500 trailers and 1,500 trav-

Three people were severely in-
jured late last night when two
cars collided on Washtenaw Ave.
two miles east of Ann Arbor,
near the Toledo Road.
The injured were D. L. Alman,
43 years old, 1202 Sherman St.,
Ypsilanti, assistant track coach
of Michigan State Normal Col-
lege, Morley Alps, 20 years old,
213 S. Manistique, Detroit, a
student there, and Ruth Thomp-
son, of Addison, who was riding
with Alps.
According to officers of the
Michigan State Police, who took
charge, the two cars,'driven by
Allman and Alps, were coming
toward Ann Arbor on M-17, and
had just passed the junction with
-US-23, when Alps passed All-
man's car, cut in too sharply,
and crashed into an earth bank
at the roadside, with Allman's
car crashing into the rear end.
At St. Joseph's Mercy Hospital,
where the two men were taken,
Allman was said to be semi-con-
scious, with severe chest and face
injuries, while Alps had not re-
gained consciousness, and suff-
ered severe internal injuries.
Miss Thompson, taken to Uni-
versity Hospital, suffered frac-
tures of both legs, a broken arm,
and possible fractures of the skull
and pelvis.
The condition of all three was
pronounced very critcial.

Two Homers ..
DETROIT, Aug 1.-(P)-The Tig-
ers went into third place today, down-
ing Washington 13 to 4 in a slug-
ging spree led by Al Simmons, who hit
two home runs and two singles in
five times at bat.
Ray Hayworth, Detroit catcher who
hasn't hit a home run since 1929, got
one today, scoring two men ahead. of
Simmons drove in five runs. Alto-
gether the Tigers made 18 hits off
Earl Whitehill and Syd Cohen. Five
two-base hits were included in the
Tiger barrage.
Roxie Lawson went the route for
Detroit. He was threatened only in
the ninth when Sabo and Hill singled,
Chapman walked and Joe Kuehl
doubled, three runs scoring.
Jake Wade, recalled by the Tigers
from Montreal, will start on the
mound in the Sunday encounter with
the Senators, with Jim Weaver pitch-
ing for Washington.
The Tigers got away to a three-run
lead in the first inning today and it
never was in danger. Walker, lead-
ing off, singled but was forced by
Burns. Gehringer singled, Burns
moving to second. Goslin popped
out. Simmons cleaned the bases
with a home tun over the left field
wall. Then Owen flied out.
Gehringer started the fifth with a
double and scored on Goslin's single.
Simmons' single sent Goslin to third.
Owen grounded to Lewis, who threw
wild to the plate, Goslin scoring, Sim-
mons reaching third and Owen ad-
vancing to second. Bluege threw out
Rogell. Then Hayworth rapped out
his homer, scoring Simmons and
Owen ahead of him. Bluege threw
out Lawson and Walker.

R. A. Fisher, Galton Professor of
Eugenics and Director of the Galton
Laboratories in University College,
University of London, since the recent
death of Karl Pearson the most noted
of living statisticians, will give three
lectures here next week under the
auspices of the department of mathe-1
His subjects will be as follows:
Tuesday, August 4: "The Value of'
Design in Experiment"; Wednesday,
August 5: "Recent Progress in Mathe-
matical Statistics," and Friday, Au-
gust 7: "The Study of Inheritance in
Man." All lectures will be given in
Room 1025 Angell Hall and will begin
promptly at 4:10 p.m.
Interested In Mathematics
As a student of astronomy at Cam-
bridge, Fisher became interested in
least squares and probable errors,
and while still a student published
a short paper which first set forth
the idea of "maximum likelihood"
which he much expanded in later
years and made one of the most im-
portant of the many fundamental
contributions to theoretical statistics
which must be credited to him.
In 1919, Sir John Russell, director.
of the Rothamsted Station, the prin-
cipal agricultural station in Great
Britain at which agricultural research
has been in progress for nearly 100
years, persuaded Fisher to tackle the
mathematical problems that arose in
connection with the work of the sta-
Confronted with the inadequacies
of existing statistical theory to deal
with the proper design and inter-
pretation of agricultural experiments,
Fishe began a series of papers whose
importance and utility have come to
be universally recognized, not only in
agricultural science but in many
other departments of investigation.
His "Statstical Methods for Research
Workers" published in 1925 is already
in its fifth edition. His most recent
book is "TheDesign of Experiment,"
published in 1935. Fisher has always
been much interested in genetics and
at present is the editor of the Annals
of Eugenics.
Appointed Successor
In 1933 when Karl Pearson re-
signed the chair in the University
of London which he had made the
leading one in theoretical statistics,
Fisher was naturally appointed his
successor. The Galton Biometric
Laboratory of which he became di-
rector is the oldest and best-known
institution for the study of statis-
tics in the world.

Openly discussed by newspapers

as a challengeto the Soviet Union

Enemies of peace were described as
Germany, Japan, Italy and Poland.
"War is very near, and prepara-
tions for it never have been so open,
rapid and provoking," asserted Prav-
da, Communist party organ.
"Italy, Germany and Japan have
turned against England, which, in
panic and the most unworthy confu-

Guerilla Attacks Carried
On By Opposing Troops'
Advance Guards
Fascists Only 40
Miles From Madrid
Communists Reported To
Have Beheaded Rebels
In Southern Spain
(By the Associated Press)
With Gen. Emilio Mola's rebel arn y
at Robelgordo, Spain, Aug. 1.-Dead
and dying soldiers, victims of initial
skirmishes between Fascist and Left-
ists, tonight paved with blood with
the insurgent roadway to Madrid.
From dawn until dark the advance
posts of the opposing armies, the one
bent on capturing Spain's capital
city, the other on defending it at all
costs, carried on guerrilla attacks.
Sniping, which went on incessantly,
took a heavy toll on both sides among
soldiers more accustomed to open
warfare than to deadly and stealthy
raid and counter-raid.
From their headquarters the Fas-
cists could look southward to the
heights of the Guadarramas which,
splendidly fortified by the govern-
ment, barred their way to the capital
city, 40 miles distant.
Colonel Garcia Escamez, column
commander, added 2,000 monarchist
and irregular troops, as well as army
artillerymen, to his 3,000 men be-
sieging Buitrago, a mile and a quart-
er from here. Many of them arrived
from Pamplona in excursion busses
flying Royalist flags and with rifles
and ammunition boxes carried on
baggage racks.
As the depleted legions of the
northern army breathed deeply for
the next thrust southward-thous-
ands of troops have been sent north
to assault San Sebastian, Bilbao and
Irun-Colonel Escamez turned aside
all questions as to when he would
reach Madrid.
"Manana," he said smilingly in the
Spanish equivalent for "tomorrow."
GIBRALTAR, Aug. 1. -(A) - Re-
fugees arriving here today said com-
munists were cutting off the heads
of fascist rebels in southern Spain
and throwing their bodies into the sea.
Evacuated from Malaga and neigh-
boring communities, the refugees said
that en route here aboard the Brit-
ish destroyer Bulldog they saw many
decapitated bodies floating in the
MADRID, Aug. 1.--UP)-Confisca-
tion of all electric companies through-
out Spain, as well as several indus-
trial firms, was announced late to-
night by the leftist Spanish govern-
The action was disclosed as the
government's militia and its Fascist
opponents feinted in what appears
to foreshadow hand-to-hand struggles
which may turn the tide of the civil
war, now 16 days old.
The industrial organizations taken
over by the administration included
some public utilities. In addition,
two radio broadcasting firms in Ma-
drid were seized.
The measures followed confisca-
tion of Catholic schools and colleges
by the government and seizure of
aristocratic clubs, palaces and news-
paper plants by labor organizations.
The new seizures, the regime of
Premier Jose Giral Pereira declared,
were taken to comply with some
points in the program on which the
popular front administration was
elected in February.

PARIS, Aug. 1.-(P)-France to-
night launched an appeal to world
powers not to intervene in Spain's
civil war, coupled with a warning to
any nations backing the rebels.
The government officially an-
nounced its investigation had shown
that "foreign powers" were supplying

reserve her liberty of judgment in
supplying arms to the Leftist govern-
The statement followed an investi-

MADRID, Aug. 1.-(P)-Fascist
and Loyalist militia feinted today in
imminent hand-to-hand struggles
which may turn the tide of Spain's
civil war.
Freshened by reinforcements,
pledged anew to their goals, the
armies of Gen. Francisco Franco, the
rebel leader, and the leftist adherents
of the Madrid regime stalked each
other north of the capital city and
at Zaragoza,. northeastern insurrec-
tionist stronghold.
Every man capable of.bearing a gun
was mobilized at Zaragoza to fling
his strength against Loyalist troops
marching on the city from east and
After 15 days of conflict, which
may have cost thousands of lives,
both sides were desperate, bidding for
a turn of fortune which would over-
throw the leftist government or crush
the Fascist drive for military and po-
itical control of the nation.
(Government troops at Bilbao, ref-
ugees arriving in Saint Jean De Luz,
France, said, were prepared to destroy
part of the city with dynamite in the
event of a rebel victory.)
The struggle for control was as bit-
ter by sea as it was by land. Loyal
airplanes swept the decks of the rebel
cruiser Almirante Cervera of Gijon
with gunfire while rebel barracks in
the same town gave blow for blow
with Loyal columns besieging them.
From Barcelona and from a point
east of Zaragoza Loyalist troops con-
verged on the rebels in the northern
theatre of war where the most bit-
ter fighting appeared to be centering.
At Oviedo, also.in the north, thous-
ands of miners carrying the emblem
of the leftist government stormed at
the gates of the rebel-held city.

cipitated yesterday by the arrest of a
number of Italian fliers in French
