HENDAYE, Franco-Spanish Fron-
tier, Aug. 2.-(P)-Insurgents pressed
their offensive closer to the Valencia
Province border in the Northeast to-
day and inflicted heavy losses on at-
tacking Government troops in the
South.
Insurgent communiques from the
Teruel front reported that Generalis-
simo Francisco Franco's forces had
occupied the village of Bezas, broad-
ening the front of their salient aimed
at severing the main Madrid-Valencia
highway.
Loyalists Towns Taken
They were said also to have taken
the towns of Sierra Carbouera, Ver-
tice, Mina and Tornaque as govern-
ment troops fled before a push that
Eras carried the Insurgent forces 56
1niles southward through the Uni-
versales and Carbonera mountains.
A dispatch from insurgent head-
quarters in Seville said a Government
offensive in the Alcujarra and Sierra
De Nevada sectors of the southern
front was repulsed with heavy losses.
It said the Government drive was a
vain attempt to knife the Granada-
Matril road and cut Insurgent-held
Granada's direct communications line
to the sea.
Government Aviation Active
Government aviation was reported
particularly active in bom)barding
Insurgent airports. An aviation Min-
istry dispatch said 12 Insurgent
planes were destroyed at Valencia De
Don Juan in Leon Province. Other
Insurgent air bases were bombed at
Salamanca and Burgos.
Insurgents asserted that Govern-
ment troops lost 1,000 men when an
attack on the Northwestern front
failed to break Insurgent lines east
of Oviedo inAsturia Province.
Says Churches
Regain Value
By New Outlook
A revival of interest in social pro-
gress by the church of this genera-
tion may save it from oblivion. That
is the opinion of the Rev. Harold
Marley, of the Unitarian Church here
-whose keen 'attentiveness to vital
current questions makes him an ex-
ample of the new clergyman.
He is a fellow who plays golf as
intensively as he throws all his ener-
gies into the labor movement. He
might well be taken for an alert busi-
ness man. He epitomizes a new spirit
of- a liberal church that probably will
add years to the usefulness of organ-
ized religion.
OneOf Island Group
He was at Flint when the automo-
bile sit-down strike was making labor
history He visited the men barri-
caded within the closed plants, he
wrote articles for the union's news-
papers; and he brought back sermons.
He was at the Detroit strike scene
of the 'Midland Steel Products Co
sit-down-a then novel experiment.
Like thousands of other ministers, he
is interested in the masses of the
people-like Homer Martin, president
of the United Automobile Workers
-once a Baptist minister in Kansas
City, who became absorved in the
struggle of the working man and who
resigned from his duties to project
himself soul and body into a special
branch of the same firht Christianity
has waged for 20 centuries against
oppression.
Father CharleshCoughln fiery
Catholic priest of the Shrine of the
Little Flower is another example of
the cleric who shed the rle of a mere
adviser in matters of faith to assume
the robe of consultant in social and
economic affairs to the nation. What-

University Loses Great Track Star

Illness Which Began Soon
After Team's California
Trip Proves Fatal
Stevens T. Mason, captain of'
Michigan's 1938 track team, diedl
early yesterday at his Grosse Pointe
home after a two weeks illness, which
started as a sore throat and developed
into pneumonia.
The death of "Steve" is a blow to
the many that knew him on the cam-
pus, and the thousands that did not
know him, but had heard of him
because of his numerous track and
campus activities.
Holder of the Big Ten conference
outdoor title in the ,220-yard low
hurdles, he placed second in the 440-

son, Jr., "Steve" was born Aug. 22,
1915, adirect descendant of Stevens
T. Mason, Michigan's first governor,
and a cousin of Katherine Hepburn,
the actress. He would have been a
senior next year, and was a member
of Phi Kappa Psi and Michigamua.
He was graduated from the Grosse
Pointe high school where he was a
sprint star.
Shocked upon hearing of the death
of the man he developed into a Big
Ten track star, Coach Charles Hoyt
of the track team said:
"I never knew a more popular boy
than Stave Mason. He was a real
leader, extremely well liked by all the
boys on the track team, and a hard
worker.
"Mason didn't have much natural

Governor Murphy
Knocks Sit-Downs
PITTSBURGH,; Aug. 2.-(P)-Gov
Frank Murphy of Michigan said to-
day that he thought the sit-down
strike washunnecessary.
Michigan's Democratic chief exec-
utive spoke to news reporters at
County Airport where he stopped
for 10 minutes on his way home from
Washington.
He was a week-end cruise guest of
the President.
Murphy declared he thought the
sit-down strike "is not right in a
democratic form of government and
it is not necessary."
Asked whether the New Deal suf-
fered a set-back in the recent fight
over the court reorganization plan,
he said:
"You can hve no set-back in a
government when you have a Presi-
dent who is upright."
Ranger Hands
Endeavour 2nd
Straight Defeat
American Rival Wins By
18-Minute Margin Over
Sopwith'sSloop
NEW PORT, R.I., Aug. 2.-/P)-
Ranger, Harold S. Vanderbilt's "Gal-
loping Ghost" of the sailing seas,
handed T.O.M. Sopwith's Endeavour
II a record-smashing drubbing today
of such proportions that the British
challenger for the America's Cup
promptly took "time out" before re-
suming what now looks like a hope-
less pursuit of the fastest "J" sloop
this country ever sent to the yachting
wars
Trailed American Rival
After trailing his American rival
across the finish line of a thirty-mile
triangular course by 18 minutes 32
seconds, approximately three miles,
thereby sustaining his second straight
defeat by a margin ever more crush-
ing than was witnessed Saturday,
Sopwith immediately requested and
received permission from the New
York Yacht Club's race committee for
a day's postponement.
The third race thus will be set back
to Wednesday while the Briton seeks
some means of getting better results
from a boat that tonight appeared
to be as soundly licked, in every re-
spect, as any challenger in America's
cup history.
To Revamp Endeavour
It was planned, among other things
tonight, to haul Endeavour II out of
the water at the Herreshoff yards, in
nearby Bristol, and give her a thor-
ough going-over.
Ranger, now needing only two
more victories to settle all that re-
mains of the sixteenth seagoing argu-
ment for possession of the most high-
ly prized trophy in international
yacht racing, achieved her second
straight triumph this afternoon the
hard way.

Leprosy Cure
Is Discussed
By Dr. Soule
General Care Of Patient Is
Considered Best Method
Of Combatting Disease
Fewer Women Are
Victims Than Men
Recent experimentation with the
disease of leprosy points to general
good care of the patient with proper
diet as the best means of effecting a
cure, Dr. Malcolm H. Soule, profes-
sor of bacteriology in the medical
school and director of the Hygienic
Laboratory, told the Summer Session
lecture audience yesterday.
"The Crusaders probably brought
the disease back with them from Asia
Minor," Dr. Soule said. "It plagued
Europe during the middle ages, but
toward the end of the 15th century
began to disappear. In the 19th cen-
tury its sudden reappearance in Nor-
way brought a renewed interest in
the disease by medical men."
Leprosy was at first believed to be
contagious,waccording to Dr. Soule,
but Norwegian scientists who were
unsuccessful in efforts to transfer the
disease from victims to others de-
cided it was hereditary. It is now
believed that thedisease is conta-
gious, but can only be transferred
with difficulty, by maintaining con-
stant contact over a long period of
time with a victim of the disease.
Twice as many men have leprosy
as women, Dr. Soule declared, al-
though statistics have often been re-
leased claiming a much larger pro-
portion of men had the disease. The
reason for these figures lies in the
fact that in Oriental clinics, where
they were obtained, a greater number
of men are admitted than women, Dr.
Soule said.
Many forms of treatment, includ-
ing some fantasticly primitive ones,
have been employed to combat lep-
rosy since ancient times. In India the

61 Year Old Man Is
Huron River Victim
Harry Long, 61 years old, an Ann
Arbor cement finisher, drowned Sun-
day noon while swimming with
friends at the sand bar by the Michi-
gan Central Railroad bridge over the
Huron just north of Ann Arbor.
Long, whose home was at 116 2
W. Liberty St., was swimming in deep
water near the middle of the stream.
He had just called to friends that the
current was quite strong when he
sank from sght before they could
start to his aid.
Deputies who recovered his body
with grappling hooks after dragging
for an hour said he had apparently
I been caught in an undertow.

Tammany Group Elects
Sullivan As Its Leader
NEW YORK, Aug. 2.-()-
rammany Hall achieved outward
harmony today by the unanimous
selection of Rep. Christopher D.
Sullivan, (Dem., N.Y.), of the 13th
New York district, as its leader.
Whether the East-Side represn-
tative, chosen for the post vacated
by the death of James J. Dooling,
would be able to bring together
factions split over questions of
New Deal support and selection of
a mayoralty candidate in the Dem-
ocratic primary remained a sub-
ject of political speculation.
Sullivan's selection by the ex-
ecutive committee of the organ-
ization which long has dominated
Democratic politics in Manhattan
ame as a result of a coup by
County Clerk Albert Marinelli, his
co-leader of the second assembly
district, who obtained the votes
necessary to force today's meet-
ing over the opposition of acting
leader William P. Kenneally.
Senate Action
Wasn't Legal,
Starr Asserts
Majorities In Both Houses
Must Return In Order To
End Session
LANSING, Aug. 2.-UP)-The Leg-
islature found itself today holding by
the tail an unwanted special session.
Starr ruled that the only way the
session which started last Friday can
be ended legally is for a majority
of the membership of both houses
to reconvene. He held adjournment
of the Senate single-handed was il-
legal.
Some of the handful of doughty
House members who have met and
adjourned every day since have had
enough of this monotonous procedure,
but they can't officially stop what
they started until the Senate con-
curs.
Senate Walke Out
The trouble started when the Sen-
ate walked out on the special session
last Friday night by adopting a sine
die resolution. The Constitution re-
quiresathat bothnHouses concur in
such a resolution. The House re-
fused to follow the lead of the Sen-
ate. A few members stayed in Lan-
sing to hold daily sessions and to
"shame" the Senate.
Some Must Return
It appears it is up to someone to
induce at least 17 Senators and 51
-representatives to come back to the
Capitol. Starr held that a majority
of each house must be present and
that a concurrent resolution for ad-
journment must be adopted by a ma-
jority of those present and voting be-
fore a constitutional adjournment
can be ordered. If enough legislators
will consent to such a plan every-
thing, according to the Attorney Gen-
eral, can be made legally shipshape:

Tokyo Adopts
New Financial
Measures For
Long Struggle
Americans Are Imprisoned
In Peiping As Japanese
Close City's Gates
Russian Protest On
Raid Draws Denial
TOKYO, Aug. 2. - (P) --Japan
adopted drastic measures today to
marshal her economic resources and
to finance prolonged hostilities in
China if necessary.
The Government acted to enrich its
war treasury by a half billion or more
yen (about $150,000,000) through new
levies and anti-profiteering legisla-
tion.
A new law lifted the ban on Ameri-
can and other foreign ships engaging
in trade between Japanese ports. Au-
thoritative resources said one pur-
pose of this was to release all pos-
sible Japanese tonnage from coastal
traffic for war shipments to China
and for the importation of vital com-
modities.
MOSCOW, Aug. 2.-(P)-Ja-
pan tonight disclaimed any re-
sponsibility for raid of the Soviet
consulate at Tientsin by White
Russians, in answer to Moscow's
"determined" protest.
Japan's ambassador, Mamoru
Shigemitsu, told the foreign of-
fice that his nation could not be
expected to comply with the Rus-
sian demands for punishment of
the raiders, return of property
seized by them and compensation
for damages.
Soviet authorities said the
White Guard attackers were or-
ganized by Japanese intelligence
service men. The White Russians
are opposed to the Soviet regime,
and many of them are residents
of Tientsin.
PEIPING, Aug. 2.-(MP)-Japanese,
now completely in control of China's
ancient dragon capital, closed the
gates of Peiping today, virtually im-
prisoning Americans and other for-
eigners within the walls as squadrons
of Japanese war planes blasted a
path for a thrust deep into China.
Japanese authorities said their
planes had been bombing Chinese
army concentrations at Paotingfu,
capital of Hopeh province 85 miles to
the southwest, for the last 24 hours.
Japanese scouting planes were rang-
ing as far south as Tsinan in Shan-
tung province, some 175 miles below
'rientsin.
Authoritative reports to Nanking
from northern Shantung province
corroborated a belief that the Chinese
central government was massirng men
on the southern edge of the hostilities
zone. They said troops were moving
north by railroad, evidently toward
the Hopeh border.
Tientsin Quiet But Tense
Tientsin, Japanese army headquar-
ters 60 miles southeast of Peiping,
was quiet but tense. The Japanese
tightened their grip on the city as a
result of reports that Chinese air-
planes in great numbers had been
scouting the Tientsin area. Japanese
authorities claimed that the Chinese

mint had been converted into an ar-
senal and filled with rifles and ex-
plosives.

SWorkers Vote
To Call Strike
WASHINGTON, Aug. 2.-(P)-A
new strike threat arose tonight when
union leaders announced that 88
per cent of 800,000 railroad employes
had voted to quit work unless there
is a "satisfactory" response to their
wage demands.
The workers involved are non-op-
erating personnel, such as clerks and
shopmen. Fourteen unions of such
employes have demanded an increase
of 20 cents an hour, and negotiations
have collapsed.
The result of the strike vote, taken
recently, was announced tonight by
George M. Harrison, spokesman for
the 14 unions.
Attempts to work out a settlement
are being made by Otto S. Beyer, a
member of the National Mediation
Board. If Beyer fails, the board is
bound by law to propose arbitration..
If either side rejects this, a presi-
dential board must investigate the
issues and report to President Roose-
volt before the men can walk out.

Plan No Classrooms
For New Structure
By JAMES A. BOOZER
Although no completion date has
been set for the Rackham School for
Graduate Studies, according to Dean
Clarence S. Yoakum, of the garduate
school, the interior work should be
finished in the early part of the next
semester.
The $1,500,000 project was begun
more than a year ago as a memorial
to Mary A. and Horace H. Rackham,
whose estate made the donation for
the building.
No classes will be held in the build-
ing, according to Dean Yoakum,
the three-storied structure having
been conceived rather as a center for
students stirred by curiosity to know.
The building will provide suitable
meeting places for 30 or more re-
search organizations on the campus,
while its facilities will be available to
according to Dean Yoakum.
Dean Yoakum has placed emphasis
on the fact that the general signifi-
cance of the building lies in the fact

the building is being constructed to
be one of the most permanent here.
It will be unique in town because of
its facing of a particular kind of In-I
diana limestone, previously used only
state and national scientific and
learned societies.

A safe containing about $2,000 in

building, although no orders have yet
been placed. By the second semester
ethe new school should be occupied,
as a trimming here. It will probably
be the last building of its size in the
world faced with this limestone from
the Dark Hollow quarry in Indiana,
the source being exhausted.
A large auditorium on the north
side of the building will be the build-
ing's outstanding room. About the
size of one of the local theatres, it
takes up the entire side of the struc-
ture from the first floor, through the
second, to the mezzanine. 1,100 per-

about one-half the number such a
