One of the most influential Ann
*Arborites to work for the more strict
enforcement of overtime parking rules
was Dean Herbert C. Sadler of the
engineering college, and he got his
wish. Witness the increasing number
of arrests for traffic and parking
violations in the last two weeks.
The only fly in the ointment, so
to speak, is the fact that Dean Sad-
ler's son Robert, renowned for show-
ing up his father on previous occa-
sions, is home from Cranbrook for the
Maybe Robert hadn't been warned
about the strict enforcement; maybe
he forgot; maybe he has heard of
retribution and divine justice.
Anyway, Robert got a ticket the
other day for parking overtime, and
Dean Sadler paid for it.
It's papa who pays.

SAN FRANCISCO, July 5.-(P) -
Three men were killed and more than
60 persons were shot, beaten, or
gassed here today as police fought
strikers seeking to keep closed the
port of San Francisco, blocked since
May 9 by a walkout of marine work-
ers. Hundreds of National Guards-
men, called by Gov. Frank Merriam
to protect the state's property in view
of "a state of tumult, riot, and other
emergencies," marched upon the wa-
terfront tonight.
The fighting occurred in two phases
as bluecoats set out to sweep the wa-
terfront clear of union pickets, deter-
mined to stop the delayed movement
of cargo from the state-owned pier
and area. The melee embraced a
large portion of the industrial dis-
trict and backlashed into the foot of
Market Street before the eyes of
homeward-bound commuters.
Bystanders Shot
Innocent bystanders felt the sting
of police bullets or clubs as the battle
raged. Mrs. Josephine Suetes, 42,
was shot in the head as a slug crashed
through a street car window.
Two of the men hit by slugs from.
.police guns, one of there identified
onil as H .perry, died ii a street
before ambulances could reach them.
Dozens of persons received less ser-
ious injuries than the fourscore ser-
iously hurt.
The pickets had accosted trucks
manned by non-union workers and
operating under police protection to
clear the piers. Violence and con-
fusion ran half the length of the five
and a half mile waterfront for several
Guardsmen Move In
As the National Guardsmen mobil-
ized and moved in, the police and the'
unionists still were fighting and the
list of casualties kept changing min-
ute by minute.
Two thousand militiamen were wa-
ter-front bound when the first deaths
were reported. A new and powerful
nauseating gas was unleashed by po-
lice in their mop-up drive, which fol-
lowed a double-header battle between,
bluecoats and strikers and preceded
occupation of the waterfront area by
khaki-clad guardsmen. Several per-{
sons were reported caught in this gas,
which produces violent nausea and is,
supposed to disable its victim for two

Stars Compete
In Swimming
Michigan Represented By
Relay Team, Degener In
National A.A.U. Meet
Nearly 100 of the outstanding
swimmers in the country will be en-
tered in the National A.A.U. swim-
ming meet beginning today at Chi-
Included in the field will be an
880-yrd relay team representing
Michigan, composed of Jim Cristy,
Taylor Drysdale, Tex Robertson, and
Bob Lawrence:, Both the relay and
the 100 meter backstroke, in which
Drysdale will also compete, are sched-
uled for tomorrow.
Chief interest in today's events
centers around the meeting of Jack
Medica, sensational University of
Washington sophomore, who is con-
sidered the fastest swimmer in the
world over the quarter-mile distance,
and Ralph Flanagan, of Coral Gables,
Fla., who is the defending champion.
The two will meet again in the half-
mile swim tomorrow.
Both New York teams added to
their hold on first place in their re-
spective leagues by winning yester-
day's games while their second place
rivals remained idle. The Yankees
defeated Washington, 8 to 3 as Lou
Gehrig poled out two homers and two
singles to drive in six runs while De-
troit remained idle, and the Giants
swamped Brooklyn, 13 to 7 as the
Cubs did not play.
Gerald Walker, Detroit outfielder
who was indefinitely suspended by
Manager Cochrane last week, was
voted back to the squad with a 10-
day suspension by his teammates in{
a secret vote yesterday.

tion In France
Regime 'Swapping'
Said Most Striking
Economic Condition And
Foreign Affairs C h i e f
Concern, He States
The new National Concentration
government of France, established
after the "bloody revolution" of Feb-
ruary 6, is trying to avert three crises
and is doing a pretty good job of it,
according to Prof. Charles B. Vibbert
of the philosophy department, who
spoke yesterday on "The Present Po-
litical and Social Situation in
The three crises presented were
first, the economic condition of the
country; second, in the field of for-
eign affairs; and third, the crisis
existing because of the regime itself.
Regressing to present a background
for the modern situation, Professor
Vibbert said that the most striking
thing about the French political situa-
tion from May, 1914, was the "swap-
ping" of regimes between the left
groups and the right groups. In 1914
the left party came into power and
following them the rights came into
power. It has alternated in that man-
ner right down to 1934 and "if I
were a betting man," Professor Vib-
bert said, "I would be willing to lay
money that they will continue to
shift in that manner.'
Party Aims
The chief interest of the lefts, dur-
ing their reigns, was "make Germany
pay," while the aim of the rights was
to bring about a proper distribution of
wealth. They accomplished this by
levying huge income taxes.
"In;the field of foreign Affairs, the
Nationalist party favored the reten-
tion of prestige gained through the
war and also were interested in main-
taining the status quo. The lefts were
and still are chiefly revisionists.
The rights were also in favor of ex-
tending the power of the president
and the lefts raised the question of
actually upsetting the regime.
Left Brought Chaos
"It is significant," stated Professor
Vibbert, "that under the rule of the
left the country was always shoved
into financial chaos, and then it was
always up to the right group to put
the country back on its feet finan-
Professor Vibbert stated that under
the National Concentration rule the
country is in the best economic shape
that it has been since 1914. More
gold has been flowing back into the
French banks, money is "cheaper,"
tax receipts have been greatly in-
creased, and a period of comparative
prosperity is being enjoyed.
In foreign relations Professor Vib-
bert stated that at first Briand, a
member of the left group, worked for
a reconciliation with Germany and
also for the recognition of Russia, and
that he also wished to organize an
economic United States of Europe.
With his death in 1931, however,
Professor Vibbert continued, the pol-
icy of reconciliation grew weaker and
the French, fearing a union of Nazi
Germany and Fascist Italy, refused to
make an concession in disarmament.
"The new National Concentration
government will not, at the present
time, submit to equality of arms. The
new foreign minister has brought
about, however, a feeling of amnesty
between the countries of Central Eu-
rope and has proposed a new organi-
zation of the Danubian States."
In referring to the final crisis men-
tioned, Professor Vibbert said that
both the lefts and the rights fdavor

Nazi Accusations
Provincial Trouble
May Harass Hitler
Status Of Von Papen Still
In Doubt; May Receive
Demotion In Cabinet
BERLIN, July 5. -(P) - Five out-
standing developments held the cen-
ter of attention here today:
(1.) France, through her ambas-
sador here, formally and vigorously
denied that she had been in any way
involved in a "plot" to overthrow the
government of Chancellor Hitler
which was broken up by the week-end
(2.) Reports of disturbances in Ba-
varia and Silesia strengthened belief
in many circles that the real threat
to Nazi domination will come from
the rural districts if economic adver-
sity continues.
(3.) On the heels of' these reports
came the information from officials
of the Nazi party that Hitler's Storm
Troopers would be reduced to less
than 20per cent after the July vaca-
tion and that their status would
undergo fundamental changes.
(4.) Reports from the provincial
centers indicated that the Nazis have
reopened a vigorous anti-Jewish cam-
Von Papen Status Unsettled
(5.),While the status of Vice Chan-j
cellor Franz von Papen remained un-
settled, it was hinted strongly thatt
after his leave of absense he would
be demoted, although retained in the
France's denial of any conspiracyC
was accompanied by the statement
that a formal protest will be made
to the German government because
the Nazi press had accused the late(
Gen Kurt, von Schleicher .of having
had secret dealings with the Paris
The killing of Von Schleicher, who,
in 1932 was chancellor for 58 days,
was justified, the newspapers had
insisted, on the basis of "the heinous
crime of entering into negotiations1
with France, thereby giving the idea1
to Paris that the Nazi system is not
going to last."
"Absurd Fable"
French Ambassador Andre Fran-
cois-Poncet branded the charge an1
"absurd fable" and protested strongly,
against the "great prominence" given
to the story in German newspapers.
The ambassador was said by French
sources to have been promised when1
he called at Wilhelmstrasse yesterday,
that the German press would not be
permitted to drag France into the
Hitler had accused some of the plot-
ters of negotiating with a "foreign
power" and there was much specula-
tion as to which country was meant.
The German newspapers' story ac-
cused Von Schleicher of having had
dealings with France while he was
chancellor in 1932.
French Foreign Minister Louis
Barthou was accused of revealing the
Von Schleicher plot to the British
at Geneva May 30.
"Hitler's days are numbered," Bar-
thou was represented as saying."
Thirty members of the Wolverine
club, young sons of University faculty
members, visited the Student Publica-
tions Building Thursday morning and'
were shown the processes involved in

'Two's Company---
Three's A Crowd,'
This Court insists
NEW YORK, July 5.--() -Flatly
refused permission to marry in two
states because she is a Siamese twin,
red-haired Violet Hilton and her
would-be bridegroom, Maurice L.
Lambert, decided tonight to wage a
legal battle for the license.
In both New York and New Jersey
officials were unyielding to pleas from
Violet, accompanied by Daisy, the
left half of the famous twins, and
Lambert. They based their refusals
on moral grounds.
The trio appeared first at the mu-
nicipal license bureau in Manhattan,
where a stammering clerk delayed
them while he sought a legal refuge
in the corporation counsel's office.
After a lengthy study of legal tomes
was made, it was decided no license
would be issued.
The twins and Lambert journeyed
to Newark, N.J., and there the per-
plexed clerk's refusal was based on
the same moral grounds which caused
the hitch in the proceedings across
the Hudson.
"We'll go to Elkton, Md.," said Vio-
But instead, the trio turned back
to New York, and said their attorney
would start mandamus proceedings
against city officials tomorrow in Su-
preme Court.
The corporation counsel's office
based the non issuance of the license
on the theory that a city has the
right of discretion to their issuance.
Dr. Hopkins To
Make Trip To
Director Will Also Take
Side Tour To The Great
Smoky Mountains
Dr. Louis A. Hopkins, director of the
Summer Session, and Mrs. Hopkins,
will leave Ann Arbor Saturday, July
7, for the University geology and
geography camp at Mill Springs, Ky.,
it was announced yesterday. They
will be away for all of the following
week, returning to Ann Arbor Mon-
day, July 16.
The trip is being made, Dr. Hop-
kins explains, largely for the purpose
of inspecting the summer camp so
that the administrative officials of the
Summer Session will be personally
acquainted with conditions actually
surrounding the operation of that
unit. Similar trips to other summer
camps are being planned for later in
the season.
Pleasure will be combined with bus-
iness on the Kentucky tour, the di-
rector stated, in the form of a side
trip to the Great Smoky Mountains,
one of the points of interest included
in the annual reconnaissance trip
made by students and faculty mem-
bers at the Kentucky camp.

(P) - A mob of Communists and un-

trol of the Hordaan quarter, a work-
men's section of the city.
Houses and shops were being looted,
and the section was in complete dark-
ness after the mob had cut electric
In fighting earlier in the day one
man was killed and many were in-
jured. The disorder was renewed at
nightfall. The demonstrators had
erected barricades which blocked all
streets entering the area.
Police and members of the sanitary
service were mobilized and concen-
trated in and about the district. Of-
ficers hesitated to shoot or to charge
through the barricades, hoping that
disorder might be settled without
furher loss of life or bloodshed.
Earlier in the day police fired a few
shots and the mob countered with a
barrage of bottles and other missiles.
The disorder was started by unem-
ployed persons after a reduction in
their dole by the municipality. They
were joined by Communists.

The University of Michigan, aside
