LONDON, July 26 -()- Greal
Britain stepped into the explosive
Czechoslovak-German quarrel today
by appointing an unofficial mediato
and assured the world that a Euro-
pean' war was further away.
Prime Minister 'Neville Chamber-

Europe's war clouds in the British
mediator's success at solving the
Czechoslovak problem and announc-
ed that Viscount Runciman, former
member of the cabinet, had been
chosen for the post.
He told an intent and sometimes
ctheering House of Commons that if
a solution to the dispute between
the Czchoslovak government and
its autonomy-seeking $ermanic and
other minorities could 'be found, "I

contributed to a better atmosphere
in Europe and added that "we intend
to pursue it." Throughout Europe,

Forty young women of the Iron
River district and 40 young ,men stu-
dents at the University of Michigan
Forestry camp near Golden Lake are
rather ekcited about tomorrow night.
Although they have never met, a
party has been arranged for them by
a group of Iron River men and women
interested in making the summer ses-
sion enjoyable for the forestry stu-
dents who have come here from 23
states for the 10-week summer ses-
sion, and for the young women here,
many of whom are home from college
on vacation.
When Ray Zerbel and Mr. and Mrs.
Harry W. Mertins learned last 1week
that no provisions for social affairs
had been made for the entertainment
of the forestry students, they decided
to remedy the situation by introdu-°
cing the young men to personable
young women of the Iron River-Stam-
baugh-Casian-Gaastra area.
Zerbel talked to Prof. Robert Craig
jr., camp director, about the idea and
obtained his approval. Then it was
suggested to the group of 65 students
that each, if he chose, write a letter
to the Iron River people, listing their
age and height and preferences.
Forty letters promptly were dis-
patched. The comments ranged from
the comical to the serious, but all
were in earnest about applying for a
"date" for the Saturday night party.
The Misses Betty Mertins and Hen-
rietta Mahon were detailed to invite
40 young women to the party and in
no time at all, the "dates" had been
Zerbel, manager of the Delft the-
ater, has provided 80 guest cards to

the theater for tomorrow evening so
the affair will be a theater party. The
young people will meet at Mertins
cafe on Genesee street and after be-
coming acquainted with each other
will be taken to the Delft.
Following the picture, they will re-
turn to Mertins for dancing and a
midnight lunch.
The first experiment of the com-
munity's new "date bureau" is awai-
ted with keen interest.

The 40 blind dates arranged by a
group of Iron River people between
young men of the University of
Michigan Forestry Camp at Golden
Lake and young women of this dis-
trict for a theater-dancing party last
Saturday night were enjoyed by all
concerned. Those who co-operated
in the event were Mr. and Mrs. H. W.
Mertins, Ray Zerbel, Delft manager,
Miss Henrietta Mahon, Maurice No-
lingberg, of the Nolingberg Baking
Co., Charles Sleder, of the Hewitt
Grocery company, and John Olinger,
of the Cashway store. Another simi-
lar party is contemplated for the near
future. Prof. Robert Craig, jr., direc-
tor of Camp Filibert Roth, and six
instructors of the camp dropped into
Mertins' cafe for coffee later in the
evening after the couples had at-1
tended the show at the Delft. The
singing of college songs around a
piano at the cafe brought the evening
to an end.'

French Certain
Of Future War,
Resignation To Inevitable
Strife Is Reflected In
(Editors Note: The following letter
was sent to the Daily by Mr. Swinton,
a staff member, who is now traveling
in France).
Once again the youth of the world
will be regimented into legions of uni-
formed automatons to be shot down
on European battlefields. But when?
Tomorrow or next Fall. The average
Frenchman thinks not.
In the United States bold faced
headlines picture war as certain to
come in the near future. What bare-
y receives front page prominence in
the Parisan papers is an "Interna-
ional Crisis". Here they see the war
as five or ten years away. Hitler and
Mussolini and France, too, cannot af-
ord it. Yet Europe knows war is
coming, knows it and is resigned.
A former Dartmouth student resid-
ng here spent last week camping near
Fountfleau. With him were 25 French
youths. "They are convinced they'll
ie in the trenches", he declared on
his return.

Time-Bomb Found
In Arabian Market
HAIFA, Palestine, July 26.-()-
British troops started extensive raid
today to prevent formation of guer-
rilla bands which authorities feared
might broaden the racial conflict be-
tween the Holy Land's Arabs anc
The troops made numerous swift
raids in the village-dotted hills fol-
lowing the death of 65 persons and
injury of 107 when a time bomb ex-
ploded yesterday in a Haifa market
The bombing 'appeared to have
loosened a new avalanche of terror-
A great loss of life was averted to-
day when a time bomb set for 9 a.m.
in the crowded Arab vegetable mar-
ket of Jerusalem was discovered just
15 minutes earlier.
Three members of a terrorist band
were killed when the group attacked
a detachment of special constables. A
14-year-old Jewish boy and his fath-
er were slain in ambush near the Jew-
ish settlement of Mishmar Hayarden
on the River Jordan.
Smoke from incendiary fires in the
mixed quarter rolled over this Medi-
terranean port city, which by Mon-
day's tragedy in the market place had
become the greatest point of friction
between two peoples, each claiming
Palestine as its own.
Britain, carrying out her long-
troubled League of Nations mandate
over the Holy Land, struggled to re-
store order.
Guns of the battle cruiser Repulse
were trained on the lower section of
Haifa. Wholesale arrests of suspect-
ed terrorists were made. Platoons of
marines, soldiers and police shuttled
through the disturbed areas in ar-
mored cars and fire trucks.
Theory Is Aired
Julian Schwinger Speaks
Before Physics Group
Neutron-Proton Interaction was
the subject of the talk given last night
in the Rackham Building by Julian
Schwinger, Grad., before the bi-wek-]
ly colloquium held in connection with
the symposium on Theoretical Physics
being held here this summer,
The attraction forces which are
fective at small distances in hold-
ing neutrons and protons together
was the main topic of his talk. It
has been found that, in this type of
nuclear forces, assumed up until re-
mently, they have not been actually
able to explain all the experimental{
data used.
As a result, new calculations are
being made with a type of force whose
magnitude depends on the orienta-
tion of the nuclear magnets with re-
pect to one another. In this ex-
perimentation, an effort is being made
to see if these calculations willgive
better agreement.n g
This nuclear physics problem,
somewhat similar to the nuclear
theory discussed earlier in the sum-]

mer by Prof. H. A. Bethe of Cornell,
is being considered because it is cap-
able of an exact solution.

Frank Murphy
Has Clear Field
For Primaries
Republican Gubernatorial
Race Wide Open As Last
Petitions Are Entered
LANSING July 26-OP)-Governor
Frank Murphy was assured a clear
field in the primary election as the
period for filing qualifying petitons
expired today, but the rest of the
ballot-including both Democratic
and Republican columns-will bristle
with contests.
Murphy's running-mate in 1936,
Leo J. Nowicki, of Detroit, was less
fortunate than the Governor. Now-
icki's campaign for renomination for
lieutenant governor will be contested
by another Detroiter, George A.
Schroeder, who was speaker of the
House of Representatives during the
1937 legislative session.
Petitions which would -have quali-
fied Charles F. Hemans, Lansing at-
torney and Democratic member of
the University of Michigan Board
of Regents, for the race lacked the
proper number of signatures and were
not submitted. Hemans was out of
the city and did not know of his
friends' last minute attempts to qual-
ify him.
By comparison, the Republican con-
tests for governor and lieutenant
governor have developed into wide-
open affairs. Former Governor Frank
D. Fitzgerald, of Grand Ledge, Harry
S. Toy of Detroit, former justice of
the Supreme Court and attorney
general, and Roscoe Conkling Fitch
of Ludington will vie for the honor
of becoming the party's standard-
The race for the Republican nom-
ination for lieutenant governor de-
veloped into a six-man contest today
with the filing of petitions qualify-
ing Horace T. Barnaby, Grand Rap-
ids, as a candidate. His rivals are
Luren D. Dickinson, of Charlotte,
who seeks a seventh term; Thomas
Read of Shelby, who has twice been
lieutenant governor; Sen. Edward W.
Fehling, St. Johns; Arthur F. Moore,
twice mayor of Melvindale, and Jo-
seph A. Powers, Detroit attorney.

HENDAYE, France, (at the Span-
ish Frontier), July 26.-(P)-The
Spanish government tonight an-
nounced that its forces had captured
10 villages, seven strategic hills, and
3,000 prisoners in a smashing thrust
across the Ebro river on the Catalan
front in Northeastern Spain.
These victories came within 24
hours after the Government forces
launched their Catalan offensive, it
was announced.
The Loyalist advance guard to-
night passed Gandesa, Insurgent nil-
itary headquarters in the region,
without attempting to occupy the
Savage Aerial Attack
Insurgent forces unleashed a sav-
age aerial counterattack against the
Government's ground forces in a fu-
tile effort to block the offensive.
The campaign settled down to a
conflict between Government infan-
try and' Insurgent planes with Gov-
enrment troops holding the upper
hand so far.
The troops crouched in trenches
and "under trees as Insurgent raiders
came. overhead then they resumed
the push.
Menacing Gandesa,
Insurgent garrison forces in these
villages either fled, were captured, or
"likuidated," the communique said,
"as the victorious advance continued."
Government troops also occupied
the junction of the Maella-Fraga
road and the Fayon road, and cut
the road from 'Gandesa to Asee,.
These points are south and west of
the Ebro.
The Catalonians were reported to
be menacing Gandesa, and to have
trapped a large force of Insurgents
on the Ebro river delta.

Cowan And Sturtevant Address
Two Linguistics Institute Sessions

Speaking oA "Experimental Lin-
guistic Methods," Prof. J. Milton
Cowan of the State University of Iowa
explained at the Linguistic Institute
Luncheon Conference yesterday how
the recent techniques and new ap-
paratus that the experimental lin-
guist has evolved may be useful to the
historical linguist.
"Experimental linguistics," com-
mented Dr. Cowan at the outset,
"must not be confused with experi-
mental phonetics, which has just
about had its day. Experimental pho-
netics, which dealt chiefly with
physidlogical aspects of speech, con-
sidered its work done when a high
degree of scientific objectivity was
reached, so that it ultimately became
more and more physiology and less
and less linguistics, since after all
linguistics is primarily historical and

That the common linguistic lapses
of which everybody is guilty every day
provide rich unmined material for
linguistic study was the contention of
Dr. Edgar H. Sturtevant, professor of
linguistics at Yale University and as-
sociate director of the Linguistic In-
stitute, in his address yesterday af-
ternoon on the University lecture
"Linguistic 'changes are going on
constantly," said Dr. Sturtevant, "and
they are of many kinds. Most of
them are rarely perceived during the
period when they occur, except such
conscious literary creations as sec-
ond-rate writers invent to attract at-
tention or such telescoped expressions
as are familiar in the pages of the
periodical "Time." These latter are
often humorous but they lack a life
of their own. They will not live.
"The kind of change called lin-
guistic lapses, however, can be stud-

'To Fight In 1946'
Near Rouen at a sidewalk cafe a
Frenchman told me, "We'll fight
again in 1946". At another cafe off
St. Germaine in Paris; "Yes it's
coming, in another eight years ...
but who can say?"
Preparations are everywhere in
evidence. Each building here con-
tains instructions to be followed in
case of an air raid.
Men whose classes would be called
immediately after the beginning of
hostilities carry "Mobilization Cards"
made of stiff paper printed in red and
black ink with green stripes running
diagonally across them, they tell the
bearer where he must report. Rail-
road fare to that place will be free
upon presentation of the card.
When he reaches the age of 21
rears every Frenchman must serve in
the army for two years. Those with in-
fluence can, as one fellow I asked,
get themselves assigned to easy posts.
But no matter what or who you are,
rich or poor, politician or non-poli-
tician. you must serve. Even those
who are physically unable to enter
the regular service are put to work in
All Europe Tense
What is true in France holds, in a
varying degree for the rest of Europe.
Everywhere is the blue uniform of the!
army or the blue and white garb of
the navy.
But are the French willing to fight
again? Do not the crippled and maim-
ed of the last war who sell newspapers
in the streets or hawk souvenirs make
them unwilling to go to the front to
face the Spain-tested instruments
of modern war?I
