On Vital Issues

Topic Of First Meeting;
Woody ToSpeak
The seventh annual Summer Edu-
cation Conference, sponsoed by the
education school, will open at 2 p.m.
tomorrow and continue for five days,
ending with a session Friday morn-
ing.
Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the his-
tory department will be the guest
speaker at a joirt meeting of the
Men's and Women's Clubs at 7:30 p.m.
tomorrow in the Union Ballroom.
Professor Slosson's topic will be "The
American Presidency." The joint
meeting of the Education Clubs is a
partof the conference.
During the past six summers the
education school has sponsored a two-
day conference on significant educa-
tional issues. According to Dean
James B. Edmonson of the education
school the interest taken in these con-
ferences has been so encouraging that
a longer period for the informal study
of problems of immediate concern to
educational leaders was deemed ne-
cessary. With this in mind the
education school decided to sponsor a
five-day conference this year.
To Exchange Views
In view of the increasing desire of
educators to express viewpoints on
present-day issues, Dean Edmonson
stated, the program of the conference
has been arranged so as to stimulate
an exchange of views. The panel
method of discussion will probably be
used for part of the program, the
Dean said.
At 2 p.m tomorrow, the topic for
discussion will be "Should the Tradi-
tional Curriculum of the Elementary
School be Abandoned in Favor of a
New Program?" Prof. Clifford Woody
of thereducation school will present
a definition of issues which will be
followed by a discussion led by Dr.
Frank W. Hubbard, Associate Direc-
tor of the research division of the
National Education Association. A
summary of the discussion will then
be given by Professor Woody. Prof.
Willard C. Olson of the education
school will act as chairman of this
first meeting.
The topic for discussion at the
second session of the conference,
which will meet at 10 a.m. Tuesday
morning, will be "Basic Facts to be
Considered in the Reorganization of
Michigan Education." The definition
of issues will be made by Prof. Arthur
B. Moehlman of the education school,
and the discussion will be led by Prof.
L. W. Keeler, also of the education
school. Prof. William C. Trow of the
education school will act as chair-
man.
Edmonson To Lead Discussion
Dean Edmonson himself will lead
the discussion on "Recent Develop-
ments in the Michigan Tax Situation'
which will be held during the seventh
session of the conference at 7:30
p.m. Wednesday.
Dr. Eugene B. Elliott, state superin-
tendent of public instruction, with his
associates, will conduct the session tc
be held at 10 a.m. Thursday. The
subject of the meeting willbe "Se-
lected Programs and Policies of the
State Department of Public Instruc-
tion." Among the issues to be dis-
cussed are "Financing Michigan Edu-
cation," "The State Program of Cur-
riculum Revision" and "The New Cer-
tification Code."

There will be no fees or require-
ments for participation in the confer-
ence.

Austro-German
Relations Pact
Is Announced
Accord Describes Austria
As German State; Reich
Approves Protocol
VIENNA, July 11.--(P)-An accord
between Austria and Germany, re-3
establishing the two nations' tradi-
tionally friendly relations, was an-
nounced by the foreign office in an;
official statement tonight.
By the terms of the agreement,
Austria acknowledges it is a German
state but remains a member of the
Rome pact signed by Austria, Italy
and Hungary.
Germany, it was stated, will not
join the Rome protocol conversations
but will take a friendly attitude to-
ward the arrangement.
Germany and Austria agreed not to
interfere in each other's internal af-
fairs.
The new accord, the foreign office
said, acknowledges the prohibition
against the Nazi party in Austria. The
prohibition remains in effect.
The Austrian form of government
is not changed.
Germany and Austria, by the terms
of the accord, will pursue a common
foreign policy except that Austria
will observe all previous obligations
under the Rome pact.
The new relationship with Germany
will be accompanied by slight addi-
tions in the Austrian government.
Edmund Glaise-Horstenau, director
of war archives and known as a friend
of Germany and pan-Germanism, be-
comes minister without portfolio in
the Austrian cabinet.
In political circles he was described
as "Germany's representative in the
Austrian cabinet."
The official communique stated:
"The monarchist situation remains
unchanged. If it should become
pressing, it will be a purely domestic
affair."
Up until now, everything said

William Kemnitz, Leader
Of State Movement, Will
Speak Here Wednesday
By JOSEPH MATTES
Predictions that the Ann Arbor
Cooperative Society, Inc., will have
more than 500 members by January
next, more than triple its present
membership, and take its place in
"the new social order" were made
yesterday by William H. Kemitz, 1791
Plymouth Rd., a leader in the State
cooperative movement who will speak
at 8 p.m. Wednesday in Room 2317
A.H.
Organized five years ago as a dis-
tributive unit for coal and coke to its
members here, the cooperative society
was lately blocked by the "vested
interests," as Mr. Kemnitz describes
the movement, when it was refused
the sale of coal by mining interests
who claimed that the society was
cutting prices too much.
Determined that their movement
should not be stopped, members of
the society, which was then really a
buying club, incorporated themselves
as the Ann Arbor Cooperative So-
ciety, electing Harold Hill, 1416 Hill
St., president and Mr. Kemnitz vice-
president and manager.
Before the end of this month, Mr.
Kemnitz said, the society's gas sta-
tion will be opened and later in the
summer the society's grocery store.
To Mr. Kemnitz the cooperative
movement is more than a buying and
selling organization.
"It is a philosophy of life," he ex-
plained. "It is a movement of the
people, which is why I am so happy
to work for it. It will take its place
in the new social order coming faster
than you realize."
Although Mr. Kemnitz anticipates
no more interference from the "vested
interests" now that the society is in-
corporated ,he believes that "as long
as we have business under the capi-
talistic system, there will be deep an-
tagonism between business and the
cooperative movement because they
work for different purposes.
"If we had cooperatives wide-

would eventually receive their profits

"Business today works toward the
concentration of wealth. Instead of

in Spain with profits made in Ann Ar-
bor, the Ann Arbor people would en-
joy the profits of local business con-
cerns."

Kemnitz said.

Owens Clinches a
Two Berths On
n
Olympic Team
Is First In Broad Jump, 1
100-Meter; Wykoff And h
Woodruff Also Star s
NEW YORK, July 11.-(A)-Jesse t
Owens, Ohio State's triple Olympic t
threat, led America's athletic march m
toward Berlin today by winning two r
of the three events decided today in c
the opening half of the final United
States track and field tryouts.
The great Negro athlete made it t
look easy as he finished off two-thirds i
of his competitive job. He whipped o
his dusky rival from Marquette, d
Ralph Metcalfe, by a full yard in the m
final of the 100 meter dash, timed in
10.4 seconds, and then won the broad r
jump with the second of his two ef- l
forts, measuring 25 feet, 10 inches.b
Tomorrow Owens will seek his third v
Olympic berth in the 200 meters. a
Small Crowd Attends
The stadium was scarcely two-e
thirds occupied by a crowd estimat-v
ed at 15,000 fans. This was a blowt
to the gate receipts. If repeated to-c
morrow for the finals, it will further
complicate the Olympic financial sit-s
uation and perhaps compel officials2
to curtail team selections, despite thee
previous decision to take a full track
and field squad to Germany. 1
Sharing today's spotlight with the t
machine-like Owens were Frank Wy-
koff, Southern California sprint vet-
eran who clinched a place on the
Olympic team for the third time by
placing third in the 100 meter final,
and long-striding John Woodruff,
University of Pittsburgh Negro run-
ner who came within one-tenth sec-
ond of equalling the world 800 metert
record in his trial heat.
Wykoff, schoolboy sensation of 19281
in the 100 and anchor man on the
record-smashing American 400 meter
relay team at Los Angeles four years
ago, thrilled spectators with his come-
tack. Out of competition until this
spring Wykoff was given only an out-
side chance to make the team again
and thereby duplicate the perform-
ance of another famous Trojan,
Charley Paddock.
Run Extra Heat
To reach the final Wykoff had to
run an extra heat, after lacing
fourth to Owens in the first pre-
liminary. Flying Frank got better,
however, with each race. He was
off the marks in old time form in the
extra heat, run to decide the seventh
* finalist, and easily beat Harvey
(Chink) Wallender of Texas in 10.7
seconds.
Wykoff was no match for either
Owens or Metcalfe after passing the
half-way mark in the final. He
finished two yards behind Owens and
a yard back of Metcalfe but outfoot-
r ed four other sprinters as he crossed
t the finish a foot ahead of Foy Draper,
diminutive Southern California star.

Although the mercury did not quite
each the 100 degrees mark in its
izzy climb yesterday, students and
ownspeople of Ann Aror continued
o suffer under the scorching heat
vave which is expected to end within
he next day or two.
The maximum temperature re-
corded by the University Observatory
esterday was 99.3 degrees, recorded
bout 4 p.m. For the fourth day in
uccession the thermometer has gone
bove 99 in Ann Arbor.
Sleepless nights were reported by
many due to the fact that the heat
lid not let up very much during
riday evening. Many, students have
noved their beds out on to their
awns in order to find a respite from
he heated houses. Several parties
ave even gone so far as to try to
leep on the shores of nearby lakes.
However, many people were cheered
ast night by reports that a break in
he weather will be felt at least by
omorrow, possibly tonight. Relief
was reported as coming from the
northern Pacific region across the
ontinent eastward.
(By the Associated Press)
A possibility that the torrid wave
hat has caused 131 deaths in Mich-
gan will be broken in a large part
f the state by showers late Sun-
lay or Monday was seen by the U.S.
weather bureau Saturday night.
It predicted that the weather will
emain fair 'and warm in lower Mich-
gan Sunday, with the exception of
ocal showers in the extreme north,
but forecast thundershowers locally,
with cooler weather in the north
and west by Monday eveniig.
For Upper Michigan the forecaster
expected scattered showers and not so
warm weather Sunday in the ex-
treme East, with thundershowers and
cooler weather more general Monday.
Scattered showers Saturday gave
some relief to certain sections, nbt-
ably Benton Harbor, and other west-
ern Michigan cities reported some-
what lower temperatures. Benton
Harbor had 106 degrees Friday, but
the rain gave it readings in the 70's
Saturday.
The eastern segment recorded 100-
degree-plus temperatures for the
fourth consecutive day. The mercury
rose to 106 at Saginaw, 102 at Flint,
and 101 at Detroit, Bay City and
Kalamazoo.
Heat prostrations were numerous
throughout the state. In Detroit
alone 34 deaths were attributed to
the heat, giving it more than 70 for
the hot spell.

Story Of Graduate Imprisoned
As Spy For Two Years Is Told'

By FRED WARNER NEAL
- The story of Arvid J. Jacobson,
- University of Michigan graduate who
was released last week from a Fin-
nish prison where he spent two years
as a convicted Communist spy, is as
romantic a tale of European intrigue
as can be told.
Sentenced to serve five years on
charges of espionage in the spring
o of 1934, Jacobson walked from the
1 prison at Turku (Abo), Finland, last
s Sunday protesting his innocence as he
e did all through his long trial and
imprisonment. He is expected to re-
s turn to the United States immediate-
h ly.
- Jacobson obtained his freedom

in the fall of 1933 only to be freed
later. She returned to the United
States, where she has waged a faith-
ful fight for her husband's pardon.
Jacobson was graduated from the
University in 1928, obtaining a M.A.
degree in three years, earning his
way through school by working sum-
mers in a logging camp. It was in
this work that he lost all but one
finger on his right hand.
After graduation, he taught math-
ematics in the high school at North-
ville until 1932. He was always a
model teacher, according to Russell
H. Amerman, superintendent of
schools at Northville, and none of
the villagers, with whom he was
