BERLIN, Aug. 5. - P) - Incom-
parable Jesse Owens, whose blazing
bursts of speed and jumping ability
have thrilled nearly half a million
spectators on four successive days,
completed his classic Olympic triple
title conquest in record-smashing
style in the rain today.
Approximately 75,000 spectators,
the smallest crowd yet occupying the
huge stadium any afternoon, made
up in cheers what it lacked in num-
bers as the dynamic American negro
added the 200-meter title to his prev-
ious triumphs in the 100-meter sprint
and the broad jump.
Pursued by his dusky Pasadena
(Calif.) teammate, Matthew (Mack)
Robinson, who finished second, the
Ohio State g.l-around star ended an
u ibeaten campaign by lowering the
world as well as the Olympic mark
around one turn to 20.7 seconds.
Owens, in contributing the fifth
American Negro triumph in these
games, featured another big day in
which the United States team scored
well over the 100 mark in the team
point standing, leaving all rivals far
In addition to the 200-meter final,
Americans finished one-two in the
discus throw with big Ken Carpen-
ter,- of Compton, Calif., beating his
California rival, Gordon (Slinger)
Dunn, by hurling the platter 50.48
meters, 165 feet 7 29/64 inches for a
new Olympic record.
Britons Take Walk
Another gold medal was added to
the steadily growing American collec-
tion by Earle Meadows, of Fort Worth,.
Tex. The Southern California Tro-
jan soared to the Olympic mark-
smashing height of 4.35 meters, 14
feet 2 15/16 inches, eclipsing the old
record of 14 feet 1 7/f8 inches made
by Bill Miller at Los Angeles four
years ago.
The day's competition saw Great,
Britain retain the 50-kilometer walk
championships, as Harold Whitlock
clipped nearly 20 minutes from the
record, winning in four hours 30 min-
utes, 41.4 seconds, and Uncle Sam's
110-meter hurdling trio and 1,500-
meter triumvirate qualify in stirring
trials marked by the elimination of
Stanley Wooderson, Great Britain's
"metric mile hope."
Reichsfuehrer Adolf Hitler was
driven from his official box by a
heavy downpour of rain just after
Owens flashed across the finish line
for his third triumph and wasn't
among the thousands of die-hards
who remained and thundered acclaim
when the Negro stepped up for the
third time to be crowned with a laurel
wreath and given his third gold
medal and oak tree that will be
planted on Ohio State's campus.
Fourth Yankee Triple
Surmounting dismal weather con-
ditions throughout his four-day
stretch. Owens set two new Olympic
records, equalled a third besides add-
ing his name twice to the world rec-
ord list by equalling the 100-meter
mark of 10.3 seconds in addition to

his 200-meter mark this afternoon.
The only thing Jesse lost in the four
days was an official decision by the
I.A.A.F. ruling out his 10.2 perform-
a nce in the 100 with an aiding wind.
Owens thus became the fourth
American to capture three or more
championships in one Olympaid and
the first athlete to achieve a triple
since peerless Paavo Nurmi ran them
all dizzy in 1924 in Paris.
The Negro joined the heroic com-
pany of Arthur Kraenzlein, who won
four events in 1900, Ray Ewry, who
swept three standing jumps twice in

One Of Weirdest Cases In Law
Annals Reviewed By Prof. Tracy

In Re Tichbone, Famous
English Trial, Aroused
Heated Public Opinion
One of the weirdest cases in Great
Britain's legal annals, the Tichborne
case, which 75 years ago sharply
divided and aroused British public
opinion to frenzy was yesterday re-
viewed by Prof. John E. Tracy of
the Law School in a Summer Session
Roger Charles Tichborne, self-
identified claimant of the Tichborne
estate, was the principal of the case
that violently excited even England's
nobility and led to extensive gambling
on the probability of his claim being
confirmed by English courts. The
topic of Professor Tracy's lecture was
'In re Tichborne: A Celebrated Le-
gal Controversy."
Son of a mother who hated England
I and insisted upon Roger being edu-
cated in France, Roger had become by
the time he was 23 years old a moody I
and discontented man and left for
South America, Professor Tracy re-
lated. Upon the death of a brother,
he started for England but never
reached there and was thought to
have drowned.
"Everyone but Roger's mother be-
lieved him dead. After her husband
died, she advertised widely in news-
papers for him.
"Finally she received a message
from him that he had been saved by
sailors. His return was awaited an-
xiously not only by his mother, but
by relatives who were prospective
heirs to the Tichborne estate."
In 1866 he conferred with his so-
licitor and after two years his claim I
to the estate reached 'the docket. A
year later the trial started.
"By this time a great deal of senti-
ment had swept over England. Prom-
inent attorneys offered aid and he
was advanced money on his claims,"
Professor Tracy said.
For two years attorneys prepared

His purpose, he said, would be to
allay any possible misconception of
Father Coughlin's work by describing
it accurately.
Discussing his talks with prelates
who had asked "what all the hullaba-
loo was about," the Bishop said he
had given them a "pretty picture of
what Father Coughlin was doing."
But some objected, Bishop Gal-
lagher explained, "There is a spot
on your picture. He (Father Cough-

and with her death an old note of

"Roger was on the stand for 22
days. He forgot a lot, but told a
pretty straight story. His attorneys
called more than 100 witnesses, and
it looked as though he had a pretty
strong case," the speaker related.
The defense attorney claimed so
vituperatively that the claimant was
not Roger that the plaintiff dropped
the case after the jury had retired
for deliberation, according to Profes-
sor Tracy.

At Last Lunch
Season Brought To Close
Wilh 'A Bang,' Asserts
Chairman Paul Stanger
Dr. Louis A. Hopkins, Director of
the Summer Session, was the guest
speaker at the fifth and final of the
physical education luncheons, held at
the Union, yesterday. The last lun-
cheon brought the season to a close,
in the words of Paul C. Stanger,
chairman of the program committee,
"with a bang."
The 75 physical education students
and graduates who attended the lun-
cheon, sang Michigan songs and other
songs under the direction of Franklin
Weddle, band and music director at
Central High School in Flint, ac-
companied by Ruth Patto.
Dr. Hopkins reminisced about his
experiences on his recent trip to
Northern Michigan with Dean Sam-
uel T. Dana of the Forestry School,
land said that in traveling around the
upper peninsula, he was impressed by
the way the land was being used more
and more for recreational purposes
rather than commercial purposes.
"People have gained a new con-
sciousness toward recreation," said
Dr. Hopkins, "and this new attitude
affects education. This can be seenl
in the fact that the University of
Michigan, for example, has been
spreading out, and doing outdoor
things." Dr. Hopkins cited the geol-
ogy project out in Colorado, the geo-
graphy camp in Maine, and the for-
estry station in the upper peninsula
of Michigan, as examples of these
out-of-door projects.
Coach Harry G. Kipke, and Coach
Franklin C. Cappon, who were guest
speakers at previous physical educa-
tion weekly luncheons, were also
present at the last luncheon.
Intramural Round
Robin Won By Reds
The Reds captured the round robin
softball championship of the Summer
Session Tuesday afternoon by win-
ning their seventh straight game.
This team, composed of two former
Michigan athletes and Ludders, who
pitched his team to a victory in the
same tournament last summer, swept
all opposition before it in the race for
the flag.
Danny Rose, former basketball
star, and Joe Truskowski, former
football captain and three-sport man,
helped the Reds to the pennant aided
by the fine work of Pitcher Ludder

and Catcher Rankin.
Next week, games will be arranged'
among the various teams in a chal-
lenge round. Those desirous of play-
ing each other will ieet in unofficial
games during this seventh school
week. There will be no championship
at stake, according to Ernie Smith,
director of the softball league
throughout the Summer Session.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 5.-(M)-The
American Federation of Labor's ex-
ecutive council today voted to sus-
pend ten unions now in the commit-
tee for industrial organization unless
they withdraw from that group with-
in 30 days.
Otherwise. the council decided, the
unions representing more than 1,-
000,000 workers will be suspended
John L. Lewis, president of the

"We will not disband the commit-
tee for industrial organization. The
decision of the executive council will
not change the policy of the, C.I.O.,

cision after a three-day "trial" of the

of "insurrection" and "rebellion" in
their organizing activities.
10 Unions Affected
The unions affected by the suspen-
sion order were:
United Mine Workers of America,
Amalgamated Clothing Workers, Oil
Field, Gas Well and Refinery Work-
ers of America, International Union
of Mine, Mill and Smelter Workers,
International Ladies' Garment Work-
ers, United Textile Workers of Amer-
ica, Federation of Flat ,Glass Work-
ers, United Automobile Workers,
Amalgamated- Association of Iron,
Steel and Tin Workers, and the Unit-
ed Rubber Workers.
The Lewis group was composed of
the A.F. of L. faction believing all
workers in each big industry should
be organized into one union.
"When ambitious men form a dual,
rival organization for the purpose of
enforcing the acceptance of minority
rule within the American Federation
of Labor, the executive council de-
cides they cannot do so within and as
a part of the American Federation of
Labor," the council said in a state-
ment announcing its decision.
"The executive council is fully con-
scious of the grave situation existing
within the family of organized labor
because of the breach which has been
created through the formation of the
committee for industrial organization.
