WASHINGTON, July 6. -(0P) - In
weary outward resignation, Congress
has accepted the necessity of staying
on the job for a session likely to be
the longest in 13 years - but "off the
record" all joy is just about gone from
Capitol Hill.
With the spirit of a man who has
seen all the show but can't leave be-
cause his wife would like to see it all
over again, 500-odd Senators and
Representatives have fallen upon the
dull days of all work. A short time ago
they believed that they were about
through, but suddenly, in the Pres-
ident's wealth'-tax program, the road
stretched out far ahead.
Chairmen hustle them off to com-
mittee meetings that start early and
late; leaders herd them into sessions
where bells, quorum calls and votes
seem always to be ringing.
In the House, especially is the pres-
sure noticeable. The benign lines in
the face of "Uncle Joe" Byrns, the
speaker, are stiffening a bit as he
brings the House to order an hour
earlier than usual and frowns down
all time-killing. The jocular spirit
is no more, and even the most fa-
mous of wits are finding it pretty
hard to summon up any humor.
Nothing much is being said publicly
about the prospect of a session likely
to run until late August or early Sep-
tember, but many private comments
are sizzling. Bespeaking the possi-
bility of a good many defections, one
representative with a long record of
supporting the administration, tells
his friends: "If they hang on here
until after Aug. 1, they'll have to get
along without this statesman."
There are various reasons why
members of Congress would like to
clear out and go home. Several say
frankly that they want to get back to
their districts to build up political
fences. Since Congress comes back
next January, no matter when it quits.
The best time for that sort of work
- the summer, when conventions,
barbecues and the like are popular -
is fast slipping away.
Another reason given is that some
members don't like Washington as a
place to live,-say it costs too much.
One says privately: "The only way
Tigers Extend
winning Streak
To Nine Games

we can hope to save a little money is to
spend a good dealof time at home
where the bills aren't so high."
Meanwhile, Congressional attaches
of long experience say that after dis-
position of-the original "must" pro-
gram of the administration -the
banking legislation and the Guffey
Coal Bill- and the long considera-
tion of the wealth-tax is begun, the
radical blocs will have plenty of time
for trying to put through their own
plans. Some of the conservatives
.dread this with expressions akin to
One group, however, takes the whole
thing in its stride. The veterans oc-
cupying high places - such as Sen-
ators Robinson, Harrison and Glass
and Representatives Byrns, Rayburn,
Doughton, Jones, O'Connor -have
seen too many sessions come and go
to get excited.

Former U. of D. Football
Star Is Treated For Leg
Injured In Shrine Game
Doug Nott, former University of
Detroit football star was released from
University Hospital yesterday, where
he had been since June 25 for treat-
ment of an injured leg. Nott's treat-
ment was designed to prepare him
for the professional football season,
it was said. He signed with the De-
troit Lions February 1.
Nott, a graduate of Ann Arbor High
school, was injured last December
in a practice scrimmage for the East-
West Shrine game New Year's day.
Nott was a member of the West team
Reversing his field and shifting his
weight, the Detroit star's ankle
buckled, incapacitating him for the
game and making his future playing
career:ependert on the leg's recovery.
The injury was described as a "torn'
lateral ligament."
The injured leg was placed in a
cast June 25 and was removed yester-
Going to the University of Detroit,
Nott was singled out by Coach Gus
Doi'ais, himself an originator of the
forward pass in practice, as a forward
passing prospect. Prolonged work
combined with natural ability resulted
in Nott's being selected as one of the
country's outstanding pass threats for
three years. This, combined with a
superior running and kicking game,
led to his selection for All-American
mention for two years.
Injuries in his senior year clouded
his record, but he was selected as a
fullback on the West team.

Play Written
To Be Given
Broadway Play, 'Merrily
We Roll Along,' To Be
Presented Wednesday
Considered Satire
On Life Of Author
Cynicisi Of Modern Life
Manifestly Shown When
Plot Is Studied
"Merrily We Roll Along," a play in
which the playwright, George S.
Kaufman, is thought by many critics
to be satirizing his own life, will be
the third play in. the summer season
of the Michigan Repertory Players.
It will open Wednesday night at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theater for a
four-day run.
The play gains its effect by telling
the lives of the principal characters in
retrospect. The opening scene, which
takes place in 1934, is a drunken party
at a sumptuous Long Island home,
to which all the current celebrities
have been invited to honor the latest
hit of the successful playwright, Rich-
ard Niles.
Cynicism Apparent
The cynicism of the play becomes
more and more apparent as the plot
rolls backward, and the audience sees
the young Niles, whose ambition is to
write really great plays, become linked
with the mercenary and artificial ac-
tress, Althea Royce, who forces him
to write so that his plays will be
box-office hits.
Niles, as one critic has said, "comes
to Broadway cloaked in idealism, and
leaves it with vapid honors, a wealthy
hack dramatist," while his second
wife, Althea, is characterized as "cold
as ice, sharp as a Boy Scout knife,
and shallow as a brook in drought-
time Kansas."
Contrast of Ideas
The loss of Niles' ideals is even
more poignant because of the effect
it has on his two best friends, Jona-
than Crale, an artist, and Julia Glen,
a writer. Between Crale and Niles
there is the contrast between two men,
one who achieved his ideals, and the
other who sacrificed them for fame
and wealth. Their friendship is brok-
en when Crale paints the playwright
and his wife, Niles with his arui
around a cash register, and Althea
with the arms of an octopus.
In the first act the audience sees
Julia as a drunken, dissolute woman,
who writes excellent stories when she
needs money. Her character is sup-
posedly fashioned after that of Dor-
othy Parker. However, during the
succeeding acts, taking place in the
1920's. She is an idealistic and naive
young girl, who is sincerely in love
with Richard Niles.
Large Cast Required
The prediction of "Merrily We Roll
Along" is made difficult by the cast of
50 required and by the fact that
nine sets are used.
The settings, which are under the
direction of Alexander Wyckoff, will
differ from those of the New York
production, in that all unnecessary
details will be eliminated from the
set with just a few vital details to
characterize each period, while in the
Broadway production every possible
detail was included. Both ends of the
stage will remain the same through-
out the play, but the center will be set
in a stylized manner to indicate the
mood of the period.

Tenth Anniversary
Of 'Monkey' Trial
To Be Celebrated
DAYTON, Tenn., July 6 - (P) -
Proud of its sturdy fundamentalism,
Dayton approaches the tenth anni",
versary of its "monkey trial" with
plans for a celebration reviving scenes
that for a few days focused world
attention on this little East Tennes-
see town.
The movement got underway too
late for the celebration to coincide
with next week's anniversary of the
trial's beginning, and it will be held
Sept. 24-26. Sponsors said today they
hoped all living participants in the
trial, along with the newspaper re-
porters who "covered" it, would re-
turn. A detailed program will be pre-
pared soon.
It was a decade ago next Wednes-
Scopes, the 10th, that John Thomas
Scopes, a young biology teacher fresh
from college, went on trial for in-
structing high school students in the
theory of evolution, thus violating a
newly-enacted State statute.

ADDIS ABABA, July 6. --(P) -
One hundred and twenty-five Amer-
icans living in Ethiopia were advised
today by their government to leave
this war-threatened land.
Diplomatic quarters took the action
to mean that the United States - to
which Emperor Haile Selassie ap-
pealed this week under the Kellogg
Anti-War Pact --had virtually given
up hope that Italy and Ethiopia would
settle their differences peacefully.
Washington's reply to the Emper-
or's appeal, which cited Italy's obli-
gations under the 1928 pact outlaw-
ing war and asked that some way be
found to make her abide by them,
was received at the legation at noon.
It did not go to the government im-
mediately. There were indications
that its delivery to the foreign min-
ister might be delayed until Mon-
110 Are Missionaries
State department records show that
about 110 of the 125 Americans re-
siding in Ethiopia are missionaries.
They represent the Seventh Day Ad-
ventists, of Tacoma Park, Md., the
Sudan Frontier Mission of Philadel-
phia and the Women's General Mis-
byterian Church of North America,
which has headquarters in Pitts-
T. A. Lambie, intimate friend of
the Emperor and field director of
the Ethiopian Mission Service, who
is in London seeking to organize an
ambulance corps for that nation, said
50 American missionaries stationed
at Addis Ababa would not heed the
legation's warning.
"We put our faith in Godand do
not expect consular protection," Lam-
bie declared, revealing that he had
cabled his co-workers to remain at
their posts "whatever happens."
Discounts Fears
Lambie discounted fears that mis-
sionaries would be exposed to grave
danger. He pointed out that Addis
Ababa was difficult of access to Italian
bombing planes, since the late Em-
peror Menelik, when he founded the
capital 50 years ago, planted groves
of eucalyptus trees over an area 10
miles long and three miles wide, thus
camouflaging much of the city.
"The Emperor's palace itself is ex-
posed," Lambie said, "since it is sit-
uated on a hilltop, and part of the
city would be an easy target for
bombs. But the rest is hidden."
As soon as hostilities break out,
Lambie said, "most of the inhabitants
probably will take to the countryside."
He added: "Moreover, Italian planes
would have to fly at least 350 miles
from either Eritrea or Somaliland to
reach Addis Ababa, and there are
no landing fields en route.
ROME, July 6.--(N)-Prepara-
tons for possible war with Ethiopia
swung into high gear tonight after
Benito Mussolini once again warned
the world thatItaly would not turn
back from her course in Africa.
A cannon top, significantly, was Il
Duce's rostrum for his latest fighting
speech, delivered at Salerno before
12,000 black shirts ready to leave for
African service. To their roars of ap-
proval, he said:
"We have decided upon a struggle
in which we as a government and a
people will not turn back. The deci-

sion is irretrievable."
Mussolini was in top oratorical form
as he told his massed fighting men
that the die was cast.
"Remember," he said, "that Italians
have always defeated the black races.
Adua (where an Italian invading force
was badly beaten by ill-equipped, but
numerically superior Ethiopian de-
fenders in 1896) was an exception

DETROIT, July 6 - (Special) -
Detroit extended its current winning
streak to nine games yesterday when
they conquered the St. Louis Browns
by a 7 to 6 count at Navin Field.
Detroit's victory was marked by
excellent relief pitching on the part
of Lynwood (Schoolboy) Rowe who
went to the mound for the Tigers in
the third inning after Rogers Horns-
by's men had climbed all over Tommy
-Bridges in the opening two frames.
Although outhit, 11 to 9, Detroit
capitalized on the large number of
passes issued by four Brownie pitch-
ers to tally when the runs counted
most. Manager Cochrane walked four
times and Charley Gehringer drew
three free trips.
The hapless St. Louisans lost no
time in jumping on Bridges, scoring
three times in the first inning and
twice in the second. The Tigers
counted.twice in the first and once
in the second and third innings each
before they went ahead with a brace
of runs in the fifth. St. Louis bounced
back in their half of the seventh to
tie the score but the Bengals count-
ed again in the eighth with the run.
that was sufficient to win.
With two out in the ninth, Ed Cole-
man tripled to cause the local fans
some little anxiety but Rowe tight-
ened and struck out Sammy West on
three pitched balls.

Labor And Industry Uneasily
Face Cloudy New Deal Future


WASHINGTON, July 6. - (AP) -
Industry and labor trod for the most
part the paths of peace in the first
six months of 1935, but mid-year
found them anxiously scanning the
economic skies for what might come.
The Supreme Court's NRA decision,
toppling the vast structure for the
relations of employer and worker
which two years of experiment had
built, appeared to leave both sides
in the status quo of 1932.
To make matters more confused,
the court's decision against the Blue
Eagle had not been expected gen-

cut and hours raised; industry - or
at least important sections of it -
went to the country with assurances
that all efforts would be made to avoid
a retreat from the levels of 1935. La-
bor began to talk seriously about try-
ing to amend the Constitution to per-
mit the creation of a powerful new
Such strikes as had occurred prior
to mid-year, although serious enough
in themselves, were far quieter than
those in 1934. Nowhere had the tre-
