furious rush of: the rampant Detroit
Tigers carried them to two sensational
victories over the New York Yankees
today, and extended their winning1
streak to 14 consecutive 'games, and
propelled them toward their first
American League pennant in a quar-

Each year at this season Harry
Kipke, director of Michigan's foot-
ball aspirations, gives voice to a
song which is commonly known as
the coach's lament. The theme of
the song consists simply of running
down one's own prospects while view-
ing with the greatest optimism the
prospects of one's rivals.
Last year was no exception, but
when Coach Kipke gave voice to his
song of lament few people listened
to him with any degree of credulity.
For last year Coach Kipke missed
just two members of the 1932 team
which had tied for Conference hon-
ors. So it was prophesied by many,
who refused to give credence to
Kipke's forecast that his team would
"get knocked off at least twice,"
that Michigan would take Confer-
ence and possibly National honors.
Michigan did both in 1933.
This year Coach Kipke again gives
voice to his song, with an even more
sinister note of pessimism, prophesy-
ing "at least three and possibly five"
defeats. And those skeptics who re-t
fused to listen to his tale of woe last
year this year accord him a generous
audience, for the odds against Michi-
gan taking its fifth straight Confer-
ence and third National title will be
Especially will that be so in view
of the fact that seven regulars from
the 1933 team will be missing, and
also in view of the heavy schedule
which Michigan will face and the
fact that all teams will be pointing
Despite the fact that Coach Kipke
will lose five members of the 1933
line, including three all-Americans, a
strong line is Kipke's brightest pros-
pect for the coming season.
Led 'by Captain Tom Austin at
tackle, Kipke will have ten lettermen
returning for line positions, besides
a host of strong sophomore material.
The lettermen who will return in
the line include Austin, Tage Jacob-
son, John Viergiver and Willard Hil-
debrand, tackles; Bill Borgmann and
Chet Beard, guards; Russ Fuog and
Jerry Ford, centers; and Willis Ward
and Mike Malashevich, ends.
The sophomore prospects from one
of the strongest freshman classes in
recent years include Matt Patanelli,

The Tigers batted completely
around in both the sixth and sev-

ers, Allen and Van Atta, were called
before the outburst was controlled.
"General" Alvin Crowder, veteran
right hander obtained on waivers
from Washington recently, got better
as the game progressed and was cred-
ited with the victory. Saltzgaver's
home run in the first inning and a
four-hit attack in the third, accounted
for a total of five runs representing
the Yankees' only productive effort.
Rowe held the Yankees to four hits

GENEVA, Aug. 14. - (R) - Condi-

of which will be decided by a plebis-
cite in January, call for the recruit-
ing of 2,000 foreign police, the gov-
erning commission of the region ad-
vised the League of Nations today.
The commission asked the League
to approve the addition of its police
force, saying that the situation has
become so much worse that it is be-
* yond control.
Recruiting of the additional officers

bers of the League and in which the

The Saar, former German territory,
will determine by popular vote
whether it is to return to the Reich,
become part of France or remain
under the League of Nations.
Agreements for carrying out the
plebiscite already have been made,
and the question of policing has been
one of the issues.
One member of the commission,
in a minority report, insisted that it
is possible to recruit police in the
region itself instead of going into for-
The majority report stated that
most of the gendarmes now in service
are former German soldiers and that
it was difficult to keep the force im-

are being trained in Germany.

Teacher Needs Help
To Type His Letters
It isn't very often that a typist does
typing for a typer, but it happens
occasionally, and it happened at The
Daily Monday. A gentleman appeared
with a letter to be typed, and when
the rush was over, the lucky one was
one of the young ladies on the staff.
The letter, it seems, was a letter
from the gentleman, who was by
profession, or at least by avowal, a
typewriting teacher, to the school
board of a county in Ohio. In the let-
ter he was applying for a position as
a typewriting teacher in a school in
The first hitch, of course, is why
he needed a typist. That may be
dismissed with the possible explana-
tion that work of that type didn't
appeal to him.
But the second catch was his own
personal problem, and concerned an
examination which was given to ap-
plicants by the county board. Once
before the gentleman had applied
and had failed the examination. This
time, however, he was sure that he
could not fail to pass. He was quali-
fied to be readmitted to examination,
he explained, because he had during
the summer been studying typewrit-
ing in University courses.
The University's catalogue shows
no courses in typewriting.
A capacity crowd attended the
opening performance of Martinez-
Sierra's "Cradle Song" at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre yesterday at
8:30 p.m. This play will close the
series presented by the Michigan Rep-
ertory Players and members of the

In conference today with Donald
Richberg, Mr. Roosevelt arranged for
a joint meeting Tuesday of the Na-
tional Emergency Council and Na-
tional Executive Council. Richberg
heads both agencies.
Even before that, NRA's place in
American industry will receive the
President's attention. Richberg said
on leaving the White House that
within "a few days" he and Hugh S.
Johnson will present suggestions to
the President for changes in the re-

It was learned that, for considera-
tion of next Tuesday's meeting, all
emergency establishments have bee
directed to file up-to-the-minute re-
ports of their condition and prob-
lems. The Emergency Council will
act as a clearing house to put the
information before the President.
Immediate interest dwelt on the
outcome of the NRA talks. Blue

creating a board or commission to

placed under the Federal Trade Com-

some, including Senator Gerald P.

Along with board direction, John-
son would couple a reorganization of
NRA's present setup in the interest
of more efficient code enforcement.
Before the administrator now are rec-
ommendations for this step, but a
final decision likely will await the
White House discussions.
Johnson was not expected to ad-
vance any proposal which would shift
radically the structure of "codes of
fair competition" built under him.
Alterations rather would be gradual
as dictated by experience, with a
constant effort to compress the code
machinery. Through mergers and
consolidations, Johnson wants to re-
duce the more than 500 codes to 300,
at most, as a means of aiding ef-

To Halt Price-Cutting
His provisions to halt destructive 1
price-cutting were likely to survive in :
some form. One of the existing sys-
tems directs open price-filing with
a disinterested agency, thereby giv-
ing all members of an industry some
check on the practices of competi-
tors. Another employs declaration of
price-fixing in emergencies to prevent
harmful price warfare.
Because of the drought, AAA has
been a subject of discussion even
more than NRA in recent weeks. It
was extremely unlikely there would
be any radical changes affecting that
organization beyond plans already
drafted by Secretary Wallace and his
aides. There has been no hint of any
important changes in personnel or
modification of basic approach to the
