At Berlin By

Leading Two Teammates
At Halfway Mark; To
End Competition Today

Up In Opening Round As
Canadian Is Suspended
BERLIN, Aug. 10.-(P)-Apparent-
ly satisfied with dominating the pic-
ture for afull week, the United States
turned over the Olympic spotlight
today to the Japanese, the Dutch and
the Peruvians.
Figuring prominently only in the
springboard dive and the opening of
boxing competition, the Americans
otherwise were pretty well outclassed
all along the Olympic sport front.
Dick Degener of' Detroit, former
University of Michigan star, Marshall
Wayne of Miami and Al Greene of
Chicago placed first, second and
fourth in the diving competition with
half the test completed but Ameri-
ca's water poloists were eliminated by
Belgium, 4-3, and her swimmers
found the Japanese and the Dutch
much too fast.
Women Finish Far Behind
Olive McKean of Seattle and Kath-
erine Rawls of Miami, finished sixth
and seventh, respectively in the wom-
en's 100 meter free style final which
was won by Rita Mastenbroek, Dutch
ace, in 1:05.9, a new Olympic record.
In the men's division, America's
quartet of Charley Nutter, Ralph
Gilman, Paul Wolf and Jack Medica
qualified for the 800 meter relay fin-
als by winning its heat in 9:10.4 but
saw small hope of victory after a Jap-
anese combination had set up a new
Olympic standard of 8:56.1.
Nor was there any cause for Ameri-
can Joy in the 400 meter free style
trials where John Macionis of Yale,
Ralph Flanagan of Miami and Me-
dica all qualified for the semi-finals
but saw Shumpe Uto set up a new
Olympic record of 4:45.5 and two
other Japanese, Hiroshi Negami and
Shozo Manikino qualify in fast time.
Peru Withdraws
Meanwhile Peru tossed a bombshell
into Olympic circles by withdrawing
its entire Olympic delegation after
the International Football Federation
had thrown out Peru's 4-2 victory
over Austria in soccer competition
last Saturday.
The Federation ordered the game
replayed as a result of an Austrian
protest that spectators had attacked
members of the Austrian team as well
as the umpire during the later stages
of the match. Peru declined to re-
play the match and Austria was
adjudged the winner by forfeit.
Boxing competition was marked by
opening round victories for Louis
Laurie, Cleveland flyweight, and
Chester Rutecki, Chicago welter-
weight, and visitation of official wrath
on Irving Pease, crack Canadian mid-
dleweight. Pease was shipped home
as the competition got under way for
failure to make the class weight.
Flames Sweep
Isle Royale As
Aid I Rushed

Seven States, Sections Of
Canada Are Devastated
By Forest Fires
HOUGHTON, Mich., Aug. 10.--(P)
-Forest fires swept over additional
thousands of acres on Isle Royale in
Lake Superior today as reinforce-
ments were rushed to the 1,200 CCC
enrolles and woodsmen fighting the
flames.
C. E. Shevlin, of the National Park
Service here, said his reports indi-
cated 23,000 acres had been burned
over, with a new fire licking its way
toward Lake Ritchie, and workers re-
treating before flames blown by a
southwest wind. Heavy clouds of
smoke hid the extent of this blaze, he
said.
The family of Holger Johnson,
fisherman in the Chippewa harbor
resort area, was reported planning to
evacuate their home as the flames

Hoyt Denounces Olympic Coach
For Benching Stoller In Relay

Report That Michigan Star
Will Hang Up His Spikes
Discounted By Coach
By CLAYTON HEPLER
Coach Charlie Hoyt, Michigan
track mentor, last night sharply de-
nounced the action of Olympic
coaches which resulted in the with-
drawal of Sam Stoller, Wolverine
dash man, from the 400-meter relay
held Saturday and Sunday in the
Olymhpic Stadium in Berlin.
"There wasn't a yard's difference
in the whole group of sprinters sent
over," he said, "and the claim that
Germany had a 'dark horse' team was
entirely unjustified. Any such pos-
sibilities would have shown up in the
individual events."
Coach Hoyt, who has trained Stol-
ler during his three years in school,
discounted Associated Press dis-
patches that the Michigan track star
would hang up his spikes although he
still has another year of intercolle-
giate competition.
"I think he was just so disappointed
that he probably told reporters that
he didn't care if he never ran an-
other race," he said. "We don't treat
our runners that way, and I think
that Sammy will be running again
for Michigan in the fall. He'll be
among friends again here.
Up until the morning of the first
heats Stoller was slated to run as the
third man in the relay. The an-
nouncement that Foy Draper, a stu-
dent at the University of Southern
California, was to run in place of
the Wolverine representative, came
as a distinct surprise to his team-
mates as well as to himself.
Saturday was Stoller's twenty-firsti
birthday.
Marty Glickman, Syracuse fresh-
man, charged that Dean Cromwell,
who coached both Draper and Frank
Wyckoff, was "looking after his boys,"
and that it was just another case of
"politics."
Seven sprinters are usually taken
to the games, Coach Hoyt explained.
From these, three are usually chosen
to compete in the individual event
and the other four are expected to
run in the relay. That was the way
it was worked in 1932 at Los Angeles
in the last Olympics. In addition to
Stoller, Glickman and Draper, sprint-
ers taken on the trip included Jesse
Owens, Ralph Metcalfe, and Matthew
(Mack) Robinson.
"A logical team, it seems to me
after these results," Coach Hoyt stat-
ed, "would be composed of Glickman,
Stoller, Draper and Wyckoff. Stoller
beat Metcalfe in three of four Olym-
pic tryouts and trounced Wyckoff in
another heat.
"I would rather see the team get
beaten," he said, "than deprive any of
the boys of their chance to take part
in the Olympics. And in this case,"
he added, "there was no chance of
defeat."
Robbery Intent
Is Discounted
In Co-Ed Death
Sheriff Brown Questions
Slayer's Motive; Brings
Sex Angle Into Case
By FRANK B. GILBRETH
(Former Managing Editor of The Daily)
ASHEVILLE, N. C., Aug. 10.-()-
Sheriff Laurence E. Brown said to-
night he was convinced Martin Moore,
six-foot-three Negro hallboy, went to
petite Helen Clevenger's room at the
Battery Park Hotel to ravish her and
killed her when she screamed at his
entrance.
Brown said a master key thehNegro
admitted having the night the 18-
year-old New York University co-ed
was brutally slain disproved Moore's
claim that he went to her room only

for the purpose of robbery after
finding two other rooms locked.
The sheriff said he believed the
gangling negro entered the girl's room
after watching her for several nights
from a back stairway passage which
commander her window. The officer
said he did not believe the key played
any part in the crime, however, since
all indications were Miss Clevenger
had left her door unlocked.
It was Brown who, with other offi-
cers and detectives from Charlotte
and New York, arrested Moore Satur-
day night, and who announced yes-
terday the Negro had confessed.
His motive theory today disagreed
with that of Solicitor Zeb V. Nettles,
who said he accepted the Negro's
story that he entered the room solely

3 Amendmentst
Education Society Informs1
Members To Favor Single
ProposedChange Nov. 3
LANSING, Aug. 10.-()-The
Michigan Education Association
urged its 30,000 members today to
vote against three of the four pro-
posed constitutional amendments to
be submitted to voters Nov. 3.
Dr. A. J. Phillips, executive secre-
tary, disclosed the association's board
of directors agreed to oppose the pro-
posed exemption of foods from the
salesdtax, the elimination of taxes on
real and personal property except
for debt service charges, and the
amendment which would permit
counties to reorganize their govern-
ments.
"It is estimated that the proposed
elimination of the sale tax on food
would take away about $12,000,000
annually from the general fund of the
state," Phillips said.
"Experience of the past has shown
that welfare, old age pensions, and
schools would be the first to suffer."
Explaining why the association is
opposed to the proposed amendment
to permit county reorganization,
Phillips declared it "is inconsistent
and contradictory in its wording and
probably would cause confusion rath-

A blockade of Spain by neittral
powers was reported imminent last
night (Monday) to insulate the rest
of Europe against any spark from
the Spanish revolution.
Great Britain's third protest to the
belligerents in the 24-day old civil
war gave impetus to the drive to
make the nine-power neutrality pact
effective.
The new British protest was
against the shelling of an English
yacht and the death of its owner,
Capt. Rupert Savile, during a rebel
bombardment of Cadiz, on the Bay of
Biscay.
Both sides reported successes, the
government claiming capture of 13
rebel towns.That 10 of them were
in Teruel province, along the Med-
iterranean coast east of Madrid, in-
spired government predictions the
revolt would be crushed shortly.
A rebel radio, however, broadcast
capture of the town and province of
Santander in the. Bay of Biscay re-
gion, and indicated nearncollapse of

reinforced rebel troops massed for
an attack on the ports of Irun and

MADRID, Aug. 10.-G')-American
women and children prepared to-

13 rebel towns in the newest offensive
of the 24-day civil war.
Between 30 and 40 Americans were
to leave by train for Valencia to
board the United States warship
Quincy for escape to France.
Only about 100 Americans, with
business interests here, remained.
Several hundred French and British
citizens were to depart soon in fear
of the growing violence of the war.
(A number of Americans were
evacuated during the first two weeks
of the struggle)
(Reinforced rebel troops massed for
attack in the north of San Sebastian
and Irun. .San Sebastian was short
of food, with citizens lining up to
receive rations of bread and water.
Milk was distributed for children
only.
The Guadarrama mountain chain,
where yesterday loyalist troops killed
800 rebels in a nine-hour battle, was
quiet. But in the south insurgent
forces were reported on the march
toward Madrid.
(Burgos rebel headquarters an-

Non-Partisan Labor
Supports Roosevelt
WASHINGTON, Aug. 10.-(I)-
Amidst reminders of the dispute over
wage and hour legislation, labor's
non-partisan league pledged itself
late today to national organization
for reelection of President Roosevelt,
as a base for "establishment of a
liberal party" in 1940.
Following the reference to 1940 by
George L. Berry, president of the
league and an official in the admin-
istration, the convention by resolu-
tion endorsed the organization "as an
instrumentality for the furtherance
of liberalism in our country."
By way of leading up to their ac-
tion, a message from Mr. Roosevelt
had been read, coupling mention of,
Supreme Court decisions with a state-
ment, that "a return to reactionary
practices is ever short lived."

Student Theatre Achieves Ideal
In Gilbert Sullivan Production

By ELSIE ROXBOROUGH
"The ideal student theatre is one
in which music, the dance, and the
drama are combined," Valentine B.
Windt, director of the Gilbert and
Sullivan . operetta, "The Pirates of
Penzance," which opens at the Lydia
Mendelssohn theatre tomorrow eve-
ning, said last night.
"We have succeeded in getting al
combination of the three depart-
ments," Mr. Windt continued, "the
department of Physical Education,
the school of music and Play Produc-
tion. The results of the last two and a
half years prove the value of this
union," he said.

and Sullivan operetta to which Amer-
ica can partially lay a proprietary
claim. While Gilbert had finished
most of the libretto before he sailed
for New York, Sullivan had only com-
posed the music for the second act
and had to write and score the entire
opera after his arrival.
William Schwenk Sullivan was born
in London at No. 17 Southampton St.,
on Nov. 8, 1836. His father, having
made enough money to make him in-
dependent had retired from a very
prosaic navy career to become a pro-

unpopular plays, novels, biographies,
monographs and pamphlets. Gilbert

and that the country has been on the
upgrade since his election, whether
