MINNEAPOLIS, July 27. - (A) -
National Guardsmen plodded Minne-
apolis streets today as the city, tem-
porarily and only officially,. was on
a bread-and-milk diet for the first day
under a military rule provoked by
the truck drivers' strike.
No shortage existed, however, and
no complaints were received that cit-
izens were unable to obtain supplies at
groceries and markets. All business,
save commercial trucking, was con-
ducted as usual.
Two suspected Communists, linked
by police with the strike, were held
for a military court by the National
Guard.

Blame Communists
They were seized almost simultane-
ously with the announcement by the
Employers' Advisory Committee that
it refused to reconsider its rejection
of mediators' peace terms and would
refuse to deal with Communists,
blamed by them for the walkout.
Adjt.-Gen. E. A. Walsh, commander
of the militia, denied the charge of
the American Civil Liberties Union in
New York that Gov. Floyd B. Olson
"seeks to gag the press and trample
upon the people's right to freedom
of speech."
Union leaders went to St. Paul
to demand of Gov. Olson that all
troops be removed from the city at
.once.
Mayor A. G. Bainbridge and Police
Chief Michael J. Johannes, of Mi.-
eaplimporarily deposed, cleared
th. * ,_"rdle in removal proceed-
ings demanded by labor groups when
city councilmen tabled a motion seek-
ing impeachment of the mayor and
removal of his apointee.
More Troops Moved In
Additional troops were movedinto
the city with a full complement of
field machine guns, gas guns and
automatic rifles, bringing the total
force to about 1,200 with some 2,800
held in reserve outside the city.
Permits for truck movement were
issued slowly.
Personal movements were not re-
stricted but parking in a seventy-
two-block area downtown was pro-
hibited during daylight hours only.
Several reports were received that
pickets were active despite military
orders forbidding such enterprises. No
arrests were made.
End Of Direct
Relief Seen By
FERA Leader
Believes Program Similar
To That Of CWA Must Be
Devised Before Winter
MACKINAC ISLAND, July 27. - ()
--Aubrey Williams, assistant admin-
istrator of the Federal Emergency Re-
lief Administration, declared here to-
day that he did not think the people
would stand for another winter of
direct relief and that he believed a
second work program would have to be
devised along the lines of the Civil
Works Administration.
Williams spoke, at the closing ses-
sion of the 26th Annual Conference
of Governors which wound up its ses-
sion by electing Gov. Paul V. McNutt,
of Indiana, as chairman, and select-
ing Biloxi, Mississippi, for the 1935
meeting.
In the closing session Williams
shared the program with Gov. Joseph
B. Ely of Massachusetts, who earlier
in the day discussed the NRA pro-#
gram and warned that its methods
and continuation would lead to "a
socialistic state."
Gov. Ely, a Democrat, expressed the
fear of a paternalistic government{
slowly evolving into a socialistic state,
with increased domination over a peo-
ple "made happily contented andr
prosperous by the rugged individual-
ism of the past."
He suggested that "the good pointst

Career In Community's
Social Activities
Mrs. Margaret Arnold White, wife
of Prof. Albert E. White of the Col-
lege of Engineering, died at her home,
2110 Dorset, at 7 p.m. last night. Her
death followed an illness which had
lasted several months.
Mrs. White was born July 31, 1884,

marriage to Professor White.
In Ann Arbor, Mrs. White was rec-
ognized for her many social services.
She was a director and treasurer of
the Daughters of the American Revo-
lution, vice-president of the Faculty
Women's club, and a prominent mem-
ber of the Methodist Church. 1

Scott To Deliver Last
Lecture Of Law Series ;
Dr. James Brown Scott, director]
of the international law division ofI
the Carnegie Endowment for In-1
ternational Peace, will deliver the7
final lecture in the series which is
a part of the annual Summer Ses-
sion on Teaching International
Law now in session here Monday,
July 30, in Room 1025, Angell Hall.
Dr. Scott's subject will be "Sanc-
tions of International Law."
For the past three summers Dr.
Scott has been chairman of the
Summer Session on Teaching In-
ternational Law, which will be in
session this year until July 31.
During the present parley he is
teaching courses dealing with va-
rious phases of international law
arid also leading a group confer-J
ence.

Widespread rain and generally
cloudy skies over the major portion
of the nation Friday brought de-
cided relief after a week of stifling
weather which made 100-degree read-
ings not uncounted. The heat took a
toll of 1,429 lives.
Moisture was far from adequate,
however, and most of the parched
fields received merely a surface wet-
ting which failed to reach the sub-
soil. Prices on the Chicago Board of
Trade were higher forall grains. Crop
experts continued to predict greatly
decreased yields of all staple grains
because of the ravages of drought,
heat, insect pests, and reduced acre-
ages.
Drought-stricken cattle continued
marketward and numerous sections
faced water shortages despite rain.
Accurate estimates of dollar losses
to farmer and producer were un-
available but agronomists admitted
they would reach into millions for
both crops and livestock. Even with
continued widespread rain, many
crops already have been declared be-
yond hope.
Temperatures throughout the great
Mississippi Valley were considerably
lower and the number of additional
heat fatalities showed a decided de-
cline. Forecast for most states in the
great central plains were for cooler
weather and showers.
Sheriff Andres
Made Director
Of State Body
TRAVERSE CITY, July 27-
Thomas Lovitt of Jackson again holds
the presidency of the Michigan Sher-
iffs' Association, and St. Joseph was
selected as the 1935 meeting place of
the organization in the closing meet-
ing of the convention Thursday.
Directors elected included Presi-
dent Lovitt; Fred Franz, Niles; Je-
rome Borden, Kalamazoo; Charles
Nixon, Cadillac; George Colyer, Lud-
ington; Jacob Andres, Ann Arbor;
and John Barnes, St. Johns. Fred
Franz was re-elected vice president,
and Jerome Borden secretary.
A plea for a better understanding
between newspapers and law enforce-
ment officers was made by C. H. Beu-
kema, Ann Arbor correspondent of
The Detroit Free Press, who frank-
ly told the sheriffs they were on the
spot in the economy reform wave.
Recommendations for citation for
bravery to the Michigan Crime Com-
mission were made on behalf of Sher-
iff William Van Antwerp, Deputy
Howard Lohr and the late Under-
sheriff Charles Cavanaugh, of St.
Clair, in connection with the slaying
of William Youngblood, Dillinger
henchman, in Port Huron. Cava-
naugh was killed in the gun battle.
A similar recommendation was made
for Charles C. Miller, Iosco County
sheriff, slain June 30 in a gun battle
with John Woods.

BULLETI
RAPID CITY, S. D., July 27. - (A)
-Two daring fliers tonight prepared.
to take off at dawn tomorrow on a
long-awaited flight into the mysteri-,
ous stratosphere.
Culminating more than six weeks of'
preparation, Major William E. Kep-'
ner announced that the historic
flight, the seventh of its kind in his-'
tory, would begin tomorrow unless'
unexpected unfavorable weather de-
veloped. He hoped to be ready to
leave by 4:30 a.m., but emphasizedj
the exact time could not be fixed.
Accompanied by Capt. Albert W.
Stephens as scientific observer, Major'
Kepner planned to pilot the huge free
balloon, the largest in the world, at
least 15 miles into the upper air. More
than a ton of delicate instruments
will be carried along in an effort to
gather knowledge-of the little known
upper air.

Rushing back to Vienna from Venice, Prince von Starhemberg
(above), 35-year-old leader of the loyal heimwehr, took charge of the
Austrian government following the assassination of Chancellor Engle-
bert Dollfuss by Nazi rebels. Von Starhemberg comes from an aristo-
cratic family that has figured often in the past history of Austria.
and is the idol of his troops.
Predict Dollfuss Murder May
Return Hapsburgs To Power

DENVER, July 27. -(A) -The kill-
ing of Chancellor Engelbert Dollfuss
may mean the return of the Haps-
burgs to Austria, Prince Constantin
von Liechtenstein said here today.
He predicted that Archduke Otto
may be placed on the throne..
The Prince, born in Vienna in 1911
and a nephew by marriage of Arch-
duke Franz Ferdinand whose assas-
sination precipitated the World War,
declared that the Austrian Nazis take
all their orders from Hitler.
The Prince has been in Anerica
since January and is visiting friends
here.
"I do not believe the old Austria
will be revived," he said. "There was
much about it that was fine, inspir-

Woody Malloy
Advances To
City Golf Finals,
Varsity Star Wins From
Burnhamn As Menefee Is
Defeated By Lovelace
Woody Malloy, sophomore star 'and
number two player on Michigan's
national championship golf team will
meet Carol Lovelace in the 36-hole
final match of the eighth city golf
tournament today on the University
Course.
Malloy made his way to the finals
yesterday by defeating Norm Burn-
ham, 7 and 5, while Lovelace was de-
feating Chuck Menefee, a Varsity
letter-winner,,2 and 1.
Malloy had his way entirely with
Burnham, making the turn seven-up,
and lost but one hole in the entire
match when he drove out of bounds
on the twelfth. Malloy shot a sub-
par 35 on the first nine, and was two
over as the match ended on the thir-
teenth.
Lovelace and Menefee were never
more than two holes apart, but Mene-
fee was even with Lovelace but once,
after winning the second when Love-
lace won the first. Menefee shot'
birdie three's. on the seventh, thir-
teenth, and sixteenth, but Lovelace

ing, glorious. But it was too arbi-
trary. It set up too many barriers to
ability that did not happen to be born
right.
"So the monarchy to which I ex-
pect Austria to return will resemble
that of England. Certainly there is
a strong sentiment in Austria, and
more especially in Hungary, for res-
toration of the throne.
"Hitler is a ruler far more danger-
ous than the Hapsburgs ever were.
The Hapsburgs never made any dis-
tinctions of race or religion. Hitler's
government is founded on racial and
religious hatreds.
"Many of the present woes of Aus-
tria are due to her acceptance, gen-
erations ago, of the domination of
Berlin. Hitler now seeks to resume
that domination through his usual
method, murder. Austria will resist."
BUDAPEST, July 27. -(R) -Count
Sigray, leader of the Hungarian le-
gitimists, in a statement on the Aus-
trian situation today said that the
restoration of the Hapsburg mon-
archy is absolutely necessary for Hun-
gary and Austria.
"Hungary is now more isolated than
ever, and the outlook for the future
is hopeless," he added.
League's Fif th
Summer Dance
Well Attended
The fifth dance at the Michigan
League last night was well attended
by both the students from the Sum-
mer Session and the faculty mem-
bers. Al Cowan's band furnished the
music -and special features on the
program were several vocal solos by
Charlotte Whitman.,
The solos presented by Miss Whit-
man were "True," "I'm Not Lazy," "I
Wish I Were Twins,' "Always In The
Dark," and "Sleepy Head."
The hosts and hostesses seemed to
be progressing very well in their of-
ficial capacity, mixing the crowd with
a great deal of ability and discretion.
The numbers of people dancing were
larger than usual, due to the cooler
temperature than that at the previous

Italy Denies Movement Of
Troops Across Border;
Chaos StillReigns
VIENNA, July 27.- ()- A no-
compromise defiance was hurled at
revolting Nazis tonight by the new
head of the government, Prince Ernst
von Starhemberg, after another day
of bitter fighting which brought cas-
ualty estimates close to 3,000.
Protected by guns which told elo-
quently of fear for the safety for the
capital itself, the youthful von Star-
hemberg exhorted Austria over the
radio:
"Do not depart one inch from the
way prescribed by Dollfuss!
"I declare solemnly that we regard
as the holy heritage of our dead chan-
cellor that there can never be ...
any compromise with National So-
cialism."
Even as he spoke alarming reports
of rebel Nazis' military successes in
Carinthia were accompanied by ap-
peals for reinforcements of. loyal
Heimwehr men.
The government assured the peo-
ple that "von Papen is coming!" and
that the former German chancellor
would bring peace to Austria.
But peace assurances were offset
by chaos In whole sections of the
,country torn by Nazi uprisings and
hunger riots.
Unverified rumors 'hat Italian
troops were cro:ing the border
brought flat denials from Italy. They
had caused apprehension in neighbor-
ing Jugo-Slavia, which declared that
nations must mobilize if Austria is
invaded by foreigners.
VIENNA, July 27. - (')- Nervous
expectation of some vital action pre-
vailed in Austria tonight after a day
of fierce fighting in which more hun-
dreds were killed and wounded.
Alarming reports of Nazi military
successes in the Province of Carinthia
were accompanied by appeals for re-
inforcements of the loyal Heimwehr
troops.
The general feeling of uncertainty
was heightened by unveified rumors
that Italian troops were crossing the
border.
Large sections of the nation were
thrown into chaos by Nazi uprisings
and hunger riots.
The Cabinet, headed by Prince
Ernst von Starhemberg, had been in
in session continuously for eight
hours, protected by heavy guards.
Estimates of the dead and wounded,
not including many regular army cas-
ualties, ran up to nearly 3,000. The
government was hard put to answer
SOS calls for aid against the Nazis
in sections where the rebels were win-
ning.
Loyal forces - Heimwehrmen and
soldiers - were reported to have re-
captured St. Veit in Carinthia, kill-
ing 50 Nazis. The government also
professed to have attacked Feldkir-
chen successfully.
The Nazis still held Bleiberg and
Seldamsee. At those places, as well
as many others, bitter fighting con-
tinued late at night.
Nazi forces were reported in com-
plete control of the Tauben railway
tunnel connecting Carinthia with
Salzburg. The government forces were
said to be doing better in Styria
than in Carinthia, but were not in
complete control.
Socialists On Sidelines
The Socialists and Communists
warned "our hour will come" as their
Fascist enemies killed each other.
Communications with the centers of
disturbance in Styria and Carinthia
were cut off except for the govern-
ment radio, leaving the public in
doubt as to the extent of the slaugh-
ter.
The battles sometimes pitted father
against son and brother against
brother.
Government officials professed to
believe that Vienna was not in danger.,
but no precautions were overlooked.
The capital city, in which the Nazi

putschers Wednesday killed Chancel-

LONDON, July 27. - (A) - The
fightingest set of Davis Cup players
to represent the United States in
many a year squares off against Eng-
land tomorrow in the challenge round,
conceded an even chance of carrying
the big cup back to America.
While there was no trace of over-
confidence in the American camp as
the players engaged in a final tune-
up there was an air of cheerful de-
termination either to win or convince
the defending team it had been in a
whale of a fight.
Frank Shields, who clashes with
Henry Wilfred (Bunny) Austin in the
opener, which many critics regard
as the kev match. refleted the team's I

"Frank's hitting them better than
I ever saw him," Wood said after
a hard workout with Shields.
Perry, who was dressing across the
aisle, overheard the remark and called
over to Wood:
"Say, you fellows were shot with
luck even beating Australia."
"That wasn't luck, we're just a
bunch of fighters," Sidney yelled
back.
George M. Lott, Jr., apparently con-
fident that he and Lester Stoefen canI
win the doubles without further prac-
tice, did not work out, but Stoefen
played five hard sets against R. S.
Ramillon. the French professional.
