Coach Kipke Sees Good Year
For Wolverine Football Team
The Wolverines will have another
good football team this fall if thel
expectations of Coach Harry Kipke
are carried out.
If the members of last year's fresh-
man squad develop as the Coach ex-
pects them to, in combination with
the remaining members of the reg-
ular squad, Michigan will have a team
that must be a power in the Big Ten.
The team will have 13 letter men
back for practice this fall, ten of them
on the line and other three in the
backfield. The line players who are re-
turning are Ward, Austin, Fuog,
Hildebrand, Borgman, Ford, Jacob-
son, Malashavich, Beard, and Vier-
giver. Last year's backfield players
who will be back on Ferry Field when
practice starts September 15 are Oli-
ver, Regeczi, and Renner.
Promising numeral winners who
may get a chance to play on the
1934 team are James, Bolas, and
Triplehorn in the backfield and John-
son on the line.
Among the outstanding sophomores
who are expected by Coach Kipke to
show up well this year are Patanelli,
winner last spring of the Chicago
Alumni Trophy for the member o:
the freshman football squad showing
the most promise, Sears, Hanshue
and Wright as line men; and Aug,
Sweet, and Jennings some place ir

Bernie Bierman, Minnesota's football
coach who claims to be getting his
gridiron headaches early this year be-
cause of a tendency of fans to "con-

remind one and all, right now, that
"Michigan is still in the league."

The day in Detroit is a repetition
of an earlier tour, the second of the
summer series, and is designed not
only for students from out-state, but
for students from the state who are
not intimately acquainted with De-
The tour replaces the projected
visit to the State Penitentiary at
Jackson, which was to have been the
eleventh excursion. Plans were nec-
essarily changed because of a ruling
by the Prison Commission forbidding
parties of visitrs, and the Detroit
tour was substituted for it.
Leave Angell Hall
Leaving Angell Hall by bus at 8
a.m., the party will make its first stop
at the Detroit News building, -where
they will inspect the facilities of the
huge newspaper plant. The tour will
be conducted at this point by a mem-
ber of the Detroit News staff.
From the News building the party
will set out on a ride through down-
town Detroit and out to Belle Isle, an
Island in the Detroit River on which
has been built a large municipal park
and playground. Returning, the bus-

eighth story, the party will have
luncheon inhthe air-cooled cafeteria
which is a unit of the building.
To See Special Feature
From this point the group will go
through a tunnel leading under
Grand Boulevard and Second Avenue
to the General Motors building, where
they will see a feature not included
on the first tour of Detroit. This is
an exhibit arranged for their inspec-
tion by the research laboratories of
the General Motors Corp.
Then they will board the buses once
more for a ride up Woodward to the
Detroit Public Library and the De-
troit Institute of Arts. Entering the
latter, they will be conducted through
the Institute, each gallery housing the
work of a particular country and age.
Here they will also see the much dis-
cussed murals of Diego Revera.

Eldon Auker was the hero of the
day, holding the Tribe batsmen to
four hits in registering the finest per-

Harder, the Indians' mound ace. The
Tribe collected their hits in scanty
fashion, getting one in the first, fifth,

While Auker was holding the In-

hits off Harder. The winning runs
were scored in the sixth and seventh,
although they threatened to start the
scoring from the first inning.

BERLIN, Aug. 2. - () - Adolf
Hitler in a- series of lightning-like
moves made himself absolute dictator
of Germany today.
He concentrated in his own hands
the functions of President and of
Chancellor as soon as news had been
received that the aged President and
patriot, Paul von Hindenburg, had
died at Neudeck. Later Hitler an-
nounced that he would refuse to a-
sume the title of Reichs-pr.esident.
He desires to be known only as Fue-
hrer and Reichschancellor.
Immediately after assumption of
supreme power called for and received
an oath of personal allegiance from
officers and men of the entire army
After these moves, amounting to a
virtual coup d'etat, Hitler, the former
lance corporal who succeeded a field
marshal, called for a Presidential
plebiscite on Aug. 19.
The rapidity of the action which
concentrated authority odr 65,000,-
000 Germans in the hands of one man
recalled the spee'd with which the
Nazis came to power on the morning
of Jan. 30, 1933.
Once again the Germans showed
they are a disciplined people, trained
to obedience. The change from a
country governed at least theoreti-
cally by constitution to absolute dic-
tatorship seemed to cause no ripple.
Dire whisperings that the Reichs-
wehr, which worshiped the aged Pres-
ident von Hindenburg as a hero,
might refuse obedience proved un-
founded -as unfounded as had been
reports of a general strike when Hit-
ler became Chancellor.
Army, Navy Take Oath
By nightfall, the Propaganda Min-
istry announced that the entire army
and navy had taken the oath, which
was administered wherever detach-
ments happened to be or wherever
ships lay at anchor or moved through
Though everything thus far has
gone smoothly, Hitler is known, nev-
ertheless, to realize that a tremendous
task confronts him.
It was impressed on him by vari-
ous advisers who visited him today
-notably Wilhelm Frick and Her-
man Wilhelm Goering, cabinet mem-
besr - that the world looked on von
Hindenburg as the last brake on im-
petuous, unbridled radicalism in Ger-
Hitler's more conservative advis-
Tour Of Levant Described. By
Professor Karpinski In Lecture,
By THOMAS E. GROEHN
Discoveries during the last three
years have shown that there have
been great advances in mathematics
by the Babylonians about which we
knew absolutely nothing, according to
Prof. Louis C. Karpinski of the mathe-
matics department, who spoke yester-
day on "Mathematical Experiences
With the Levant."
These advancements were due not
to the discovery of new documents but
rather to the fact that documents
colleagues said that he was reading
something into the few documents
that they had at that time because
as far as they could see there was no
evidence of algebra in Egypt. Pro-
fessor Karpinski, on the other hand,
said that he was merely correctly in-
terpreting the documents. It was not
until the discovery of new meanings
to these documents that he was defi-
nitely able to prove his assertions.
Professor Karpinski was given a
grant of money by a prominent Mich-,
