Week-End Victims
Ann Arbor Fatality Total
For Year Is Now At Five;,
One Auto Death In 1935
Automobile crashes, taking a heavy
toll of lives throughout the state,
killed three and put seven others in
hospitals over the week-end in Ann7
Arbor and Washtenaw County, rais-
ing the Ann Arbor death toll to fivei
for the year as compared with one
for all of 1935, and adding two more
to the list of county fatalities, already
out of proportion.
Miss Helen Herold, 28 years old,
graduate nurse and an anesthetist at
University Hospital, died there at1
11:10 p.m. Sunday from a skull frac-
ture and other injuries suffered early
Sunday morning when a car in which
she and three other Ann Arbor resi-
dents were riding crashed into a light
pole at the corner of Washtenaw and
Baldwin Avenues.
Two Soldiers Die ,
A second accident, involving a
pedestrian and an automobile, sent
Chauncey Crytz, 75 years old, to St.
Joseph's Mercy Hospital in serious
condition, with fractured ribs and
a possible punctured lung.
In a third crash at 1:30 a.m. yes-
terday on tJS-12 two miles west of
Ann Arbor, a three-car collision
brougitt death to two Detroit soldiers
and injured five others. The dead
are Alfred Sorenson, about 25 years
old, of Company H, 2id TInfantry,
Fort Wayne, and Harry Smalley, 28
years old, attached to Service Com-
pany, 35th Infantry, Fort Wayne.
The crash in which Miss Herold
was killed occurred at 2:30 a.m. Sun-
day, when she and three companions
were returning to Ann Arbor from a
dance at Walled Lake. With her were
Dr. Kyril B. Conger and Dr. D. S.f
MacIntyre, internes at University
Hospital, and Miss Elizabeth Davis,,
26 years old, a stenographer in the1
roentgenology department at the hos-
pital. Miss Davis suffered severe face1
lacerations, and Dr. Conger was*
bruised slightly about the face, but
Dr. Maclntyre was uninjured.
- Rush Girls To Hospital
Dr. Conger and Miss Herold were
asleep in the back seat of the car
when the crash occurred, and Dr.
Maclntyre, who was' driving, is be-
lieved to have gone to sleep at the
wheel. The two men immediately '
stopped passing cars and rushed the
two injured girls to the hospital,
where an emergency decompression
was performed on Miss Herold by1
Dr. Max M. Peet and three blood
transfusions were given her, but she
did not rally.
Miss Herold, whose home is in
Bradford, Pa., graduated from the
nursing school at Bradford Hospital,
and was taking post-graduate work in
anesthesia here. Her body will be
taken to Bradford for services and

Joe Louis August 18
At Yankee Stadium
NEW YOLK, July 20.-R)~-Jack
Sharkey, veteran Boston heavy-

man to start Joe Louis along the
comeback trail.
Mike Jacobs' 20th Century Sport-

troit Negro lad for a ten-round bout
at the Yankee Stadium, Aug. 18.
Johnny Buckley, who has managed4
Sharkey since long before he won and
lost the world's heavyweight crown,
came down from Beantown to sign
the contract.
After a long conference, during
which Buckley agreed to terms, Ja-
cobs got in touch with Julian Black,
one of Louis' managers, at Chicago
and got the Brown Bomber's O.K.

Death Of N.Y.U. Coed r
(Former Editor of The Daily) -
ASHEVILLE, N. C., July 20.-(')--
Investigators marshalled an array of
five more witnesses today, making
eight in all, to attack the alibi of
Mark Wollner, concert violinist, for
the night Helen Clevenger was slain
in her hotel room here. Meanwhile t
the pass key found in the New Yorkr
University co-ed's door assumed new
importance as a possible clue.
sheriff Laurence E. Brown, chiefJ
investigator, said the key was not of
the type used by hotel employees. He
refused, however, to describe it. !

the Battery Park, in which the 18-
year-old Staten Island girl's body
was found shot and stabbed Thurs-
day morning, said the hotel doors,
when locked from within, could nott
be opened from the outside except bye
use of an emergency pass key. Het
said he was supposed to have the
only such key in existence.
The door was unlocked, Prof. W. L.
Clevenger, of the North Carolina
State College at Raleigh, said in tell-
ing of the finding of his niece's body
when he went to awaken her for
breakfast. In the lock on the outside,
a pass key was found, while the regu-
lar key to the room was located some
time later beneath a radiator.
Branch said his key had not been

out of his possession. He refused to
reveal what kind of key was found
on the floor.
Authorities said fingerprint tests
made on the keys had developed
nothing of value.

Need For Law
States Finch
Countries Must Embrace
International Law, Says
Carnegie lecturer
Settlement Depends
On Nations' Attitude
Enlargement Of Categories
Of Justiciable Disputes
Is Recommended
An urgent plea for nations to "em-
brace international law and give it
jurisdiction" as a means to the peace-
ful settlement of disputes was made
last night by George A. Finch, man-
aging editor of the American Journal
of International Law.
Mr. Finch, who is a member of the
teaching staff of the Summer Ses-
sion on Teaching International Law,
presented the third in a series of pub-
lic lectures sponsored annually by the
Carnegie Endowment for Internation-
al Peace, speaking on "Justiciable
and Nonjusticiable Disputes."{
Should Submit Questions
"If we are to go about improving
our peace machinery, we should re-
member that law is not responsible
for failure to settle questions," Mr.
Finch said. "Nations should em-
brace law and give it jurisdiction,
and it can settle all questions between
The speaker pointed out that set-
tlement by arbitration or judicial
means does not depend on "the na-
ture of the question, but rather on
the willingness of nations to submit
questions to impartial judgment."
Should Enlarge Categories
Acceptance of the principle of set-
tlement by arbitration "has not been
promoted by the 20th century effort
to classify disputes as justiciable and
nonjusticiable or political and legal,"
he said.
Mr. Finch recommended, however,
the enlargement of the "categories
of justiciable disputes" as a method
of eliminating the element of force in
international relations.
"The more we can enlarge categor-
ies of justiciable disputes and at the
same time lessen the categories of
nonjusticiable disputes, the more we
will be able to substitute interna-
tional law for force in international
relations," he said.
Enforcement Not Serious
"The contention that a case is not
justiciable because there is no law
in existence which applies to it is
abhorrent to all systems of municipal
law and the same is also true of in-
ternational jurisprudence," Mr. Finch
The enforcement of arbitral laws
was described as no serious problem
at the present time. Mr. Fnch stated
that "there is no occasion for consid-
eration of the use of force or sanc-
tions in order to enforce arbitral
"The problem is to get nations to
agree on arbitration," he said. "After
this has been done there will be no
trouble in the enforcement of arbitral

University will give the next in the

International Law lectures at 8:15
p.m. Thursday in Room 100 of Hut-
chins Hall.

Tea Dance Will
Supplant Usual
A tea dance will be held from 3:30
to 5:30 p.m. tomorrow at the League
instead of the regular Wednesday
afternoon tea.
This is the first time since 1932
that a tea dance will be held. Dur-
ing the summers of 1931 and 1932 this
form of entertainment given free of
charge by the League for Summer
Session students proved very popular.
However, during the next summer,
the practice was discontinued.
Dancing will be held in the Grand

Of Religious Counsellor,
Dies From Diving
First Drowning in
Washtenaw Count y
Boy's Foot Caught In Mud
While Using Home-Made
Diving Apparatus
William E. Blakeman. 16 years old,
son of Dr. Edward W. Blakeman,
University counsellor in religious ed-
ucation, drowned yesterday afternoon
at Burke's Bathing Beach in Whit-
more Lake, while using an amateur
diving apparatus.
With four companions, John Hild-
inger, Eric Sutton, William Stevens,
and William Baldwin, pumping air
down to him, Blakeman had madeI
the first descent with the equipment,
and after he had been down for some
time, his friends grew worried be-
cause he had not signalled them.
Thought He Was 'Kidding'
Pulling in the diving bell, they found
that Blakeman was no longer in it,
but at first thought that he was "kid-
ding," and waited for him to come
up. It later became apparent that'
he had gotten stuck in the lake bot-
tom and had been unable to hold on
to the bell when it was pulled in. It
had previously been operated suc-
The sheriff's office in Ann Arbor
was notified at 2:52 p.m. after some
delay, and Deputy Richard Klavitter
answered the call with a boat and
grappling equipment. Stevens and
Baldwin volunteered to aid with a
second boat, and using part of the
dragging equipment, brought Blake-
man's body to the surface at 3:10, just
as Sheriff Jacob B. Andres arrived
with a pulmotor, a doctor, and a

Detroit, was commandeered and the
boy was brought to University Hos-
pital with the pulmotor still at work.
He was placed in an "iron lung" at
once when the truck reached the hos-
pital, but doctors did not succeed in
restoring respiration or any other sign
of life after more than two hours of
the artificial lung there.
It was the first drowning of the
year for Washtenaw County. The call
was answered as quickly as possible
by the deputies, and the boy's body
had been recovered 18 minutes after
the sheriff's office was first notified,
but he had already been under water
45 minutes.

The diving equipment consisted of
a diving bell into which air was forced
with a rotating pump, through hose-
lines from the shore. The water at

Nocturnal Prowlers
Caught By Deputies
At Dexter Cottage
Washtenaw County sheriff's offic-
ers may not have radio cars, but they
still acted quickly early yesterday
morning to catch two prowlers still in
the act of ransacking a cottage near
Dexter owned by Frank C. Cook, De-
troit attorney.
Answering a call from Dexter that
lights were on in the cottage, al-
though it was supposed to be unoc-
cupied, Deputies George Randel and
Alex Schlupe found Patrick Carey,
40, of Detroit, and Joseph Donnelly,
49, of Little Neck, Long Island, still in
the cottage, with clothing taken from
Cook's belongings on their persons.
They were arraigned before Justice
Jay H. Payne yesterday morning, on
a charge of breaking and entering in
the night, waived examination, were
bound over to circuit court, and re-
turned to the county jail when unable
to furnish bail.
