Styles Of The European
Typesetting Pioneers
Compares Them
To 'Business Man'
Characterizing the 15th century
printer as a "business man," Dr. Wil-'
liam W. Bishop, University librarian,
depicted the final triumph of the
printed book over the manuscript at
the beginning of the 16th century."
Dr. Bishop's lecture was the second in
the Summer Session lecture series.
The lecture, first of 12 to be given
in conjunction with the Graduate
Conference in Studies of the Renais-,.
lance, was illustrated by slides of
famous books and manuscripts in
possession of foreign and domestic
Dr. Bishop pointed out that the
printers of the 15th century went
after patronage much as the modern;
business man, copying characters and
decorations of manuscripts to make
their printed works readily accept-
able to the people. When printing
ecclesiastical works, he said, the
printers would decorate the books in
ornate fashion, after the style dic-c
tated by the manuscript, at that
time popular with the people.
Dr. Bishop described the evolution
of type out of wood block upon whicht
the letters had been engraved and
then transposed to paper.
Printerscentering mainly around
Mainz in Germany and in the lowt
countries, Belgium and Holland, were
given credit by the speaker for pro-r
viding the primary stimulus to the
rise of the printed page. The Guten-
berg Bible, printed by a German
about 1450, was termed by Dr. Bishop
"the first great printed work." t
As evidence of the final ascendancy
of printed books over manuscripts,
Dr. Bishop cited a volume published
by a-Grman as early as 1470 in -
which it was stated advertised as
completely printedand not contain-
ing so much as "the scratch of a
Resignation Of
Snell To BringL
Liberal Head 't
WASHINGTON, June 28.-(P)-At-
tempts to liberalize the House Re-
publicans leadership in the 1939 Con-
gress appeared likely today as a re-
sult of the retirement of Rep. Ber-
trand H. Snell, minoriy leader.
Snell, outspoken critic of Roose-
velt policies, announced he would not
be a candidate for reelection. After
24 years in Congress, he said, he had
decided to devote himself to his va-
ried business interests in Northern
New York.
Politicians, speculating as to Snell's
successor, recalled the efforts made
in 1936 by Rep. Hamilton Fish (Rep.)
New York, to replace him with a
leader favoring a "more progressive"
program. The insurgent movement,
however, was unsuccessful.
Martin Mentioned
Among the few congressmen still
in Washington, the first name gen-
erally mentioned for Snell's post was
that of Rep. Joseph W. Martin of
Massachusetts, assistant minority
leader.nHe is 53 years old; Snell is 67.
Friends of Martin asserted his po-
litical viewpoint was liberal enough
to satisfy all factions of the party.
They noted that while he opposed
many Roosevelt measures, he sup-
ported much of the President's so-
cial legislation, including the wage-
hour bill signed Saturday by the
Martin, a newspaper publisher at
North Attleboro, Mass., began his

political career in the Massachusetts
House of Representatives in 1912. He
entered Congress in 1924.
He was Alf M. Landon's .eastern
manager , in the 1936 presidential
campaign and now is chairman of the
Republican Congressional Commit-
Other Possibilities
Other possible candidates for
Snell's post are Rep. James W. Wads-
worth, of New York, chairman of the
Republican policy committee; Rep.
Carl E. Mapes, of Michigan, dean of
the House Republicans; Rep. John

SHANGHAI, June 29. (Wednesday)
-(P)--Chinese troops fought desper-
ately today in an effort to recapture
one of the several forts defending the
Matowchen Boom, important barrier
blocking the Japanese drive up the
Yangtze river against Hankow.
The Matowchen Boom, formed of
sunken rock-laden junks, is 175 miles
downriver from the provisional cap-
Chinese admitted in Hankow that
d heavy Japanese assault had result-
ed in the capture of one of the forts
at Matowchen, but maintained that
the boom still held. They said a
counteroffensive was l a u n c h e d
against the fort immediately.
The Yangtze River continued to
rise, which would facilitate move-
ment of Japanese gunboats past the
boom, but land batteries and float-
ing mines still constituted serious ob-
Foreign military observers, as a re-
sult, considered the Matochwen's fate
depended upon the success of Ja-
panese land forces attempting to ad-
vance up the north and south banks
of the river.
The Japanese, however, were hav-
ing difficulty on both banks of the
river. The Japanese admitted one of
their columns had been surrounded
on the south bank and was saved
only when Japanese planes and re-
inforcements arrived.
The Chinese reported the Japanese
also were bogged down on the north
banks with a large number of troops
surrounded on the shores of Lake Po.
Japanese reinforcements attempt-
ing to land at Wushantze were said
by the Chinese to have been repulsed,
while another attempted landing,
near Tungliu, was said to have been
thwarted. The Chinese said they
sank seven Japanese motorboats and
killed 100 men.
A Japanese navy communique said
three Chinese bombers were shot
down in dogfights over Nnking, 215
miles down river from Hankow, when
Chinese .attempted to bomb Japan-
ese warships concentrated there.
Chinese air force officers said a
"dare-to-die" Chinese flier sank a
Japanese gunboat in the Yangtze
River near Anking Monday by de-
liberately plunging his burning
bomb-ladden plane onto the vessel's
Meanwhile, Chinese reported grad-
ual reoccupation of areas in the tri-
angle south of the Lunghai railway
and east of the Peiping-Hankow,
broadening the protection of Cheng-
chow, where the two railroads cross.

A. H. Lovell. assistant dean and
secretary of the College of Engineer-
ing, was elected vice-president of the
American Institute of Electrical En-
gineers at the annual meeting of the

HENDAYE, France, (At the Span-
ish Frontier), June 28.-(jA)-A fit-
ful struggle under a blazing Span-
ish sun shifted back and forth to-
day across the Barren Sarrion war
sector and when night fell thousands
of sweating men were still deadlocked
in a contest for one of the main high-
ways to Valencia.
The Sarrion sector, about 50 miles
northwest of Valencia on the high-
road from Teruel, centers on a stra-
tegic peak, La Muela de Sarrion-
literally, Sarrion's Tooth-and is
highly fortified but now stripped of
foliage and dotted with shellholes.
Aside from Sarrion's Tooth, the
only outstanding landmark is the
steeple of the church in the town of
Sarrion, which somehow has been

spared in the rain of shells.
While Valencia's defenders


would-be besiegers continued theirJ
deadly stalemate there, Generalissi--t
mo Franco's Insurgents were inch-I
ing closer to the seaport metropolis
along the coast to the north, with onek
advanced force about five miles from
the town of Nules, on the coastal
highway to Valencia's north.-
Nules is about 26 miles from Va-
lencia. To gain this threatening po-
sition the Insurgents executed a sur-
prise attack between Onda and Bechiz
while the Government's attention was
distracted by a feint toward the vil-'
lage of Tales, just southwest of Onda.
The Government held out at Tales
against a sudden drive but was forcedr
to yield the well fortified Pastorat
Hills' dominating both Artana and
Bechi. Artana is but 28 miles from

bacl and the other through consis-
tent shotmaking, stroked into,.a tie
today for medalist honors at the end
of the 36-hole qualifying round for
the 41st National Intercollegiate golf
championship at Louisville, Ky.
Firing the only sub-par golf of the

16 matches to start championship
elimination in the first round tomor-
row morning at 18 holes. The second
round is scheduled for the afternoon,
with the quarterfinals at 36 holes
Bill Barclay, semi-finalist last year,
was the only University of Michigan
man to qualify. Barclay added a 79
to his 73 of yesterday to give him a
36-hole total of 152. Bob Palmer of
Michigan, who was tied for second
yesterday with a 73, added a disas-
terous 82 today to dispel his chances.
Al Karpinski, Michigan captain,
carded a 77 today to give himself a
total of 158. Lynn Riess, University
of Michigan sophomore, had a 78 for
158. Jim Loar shot a 76 for a total

Stanford Wins Team Trophy
Paul Leslie of Louisiana State, run-
nersup for the championship for the
last two years, failed to qualify by
taking a disastrous 80 to add to his
opening 75, and Edward J. Flowers of
Michigan State, the first day's lead-
er with a 72, dissipated his medalist
chances with a second-round 78.
Stanford won the team trophy with
a record score of 601, an average of
just one stroke over 75 for the four
low-scoring players. The former
mark was 611, established by Michi-
gan three years. Northwestern was

Helen Wills Moody's contribution
was the British Empire. She thrashed
pretty Kay Stammers, 6-2, 6-1. 1
Alice Marble took care of the
French. She routed Mme. Rene Ma-

Helen Jacobs chased Jadwiga Jed-

who married a Dane, beat her, 4-6,

lenge of the "big three" in women's
Miss Jacobs will play Miss Marble
in the semi-finals on Thursday, while
Mrs. Moody is attempting to stop
Mme. Sperling, who beat her in the
recent London championships.
The odds favor Miss Marble and
Mrs. Moody to win but Wimbledon
is hoping that Miss Jacobs comes
through and gets a chance to avenge
her historic defeat by Mrs. Moody in
the 1935 finals. Mrs. Moody won that
particular match and her seventh
Wimbledon championship with a
spectacular rally in the third set.
U.S. Women Dominate
From any viewpoint, the United'
States has the women's situation un-
der control. Tomorrow Don Budge,
who has been controlling the men's
department all along, will play Fer-
enc Puncec, of Yugoslavia, for the
right to meet the winner of the Hen-
ner Henkel-Bunny Austin match in
the finals Friday.
"I feel at last that I am back on
my game," Miss Jacobs said after her
first match. "I feel at last that I
know -where they are going."

FLINT, June 28.-(P-The Michi-
gan Federation of Typographical Un-1
ions, adopting a resolution charging
Circuit Judge George W. Sample with
"use of his court as a strike-breaking
agency," ordered its officers today to
seek the jurist's impeachment.
The resolution, referring to Judge
Sample's decisions in a Typographi-
cal Union's dispute with the Ann Ar-

Union At Bay City Plant
WASHINGTON, June 28-(P)-The
National Labor Relations Board or-
dered the Electric Auto-Lite Co., at
Bay City, today to abolish the Bay
Federation, an independent labor or-
ganization, as a representative of its
employees in collective bargaining.
The Board also directed the Com-
pany to terminate a contract nego-
tiated between the Company and the
Federation last September.
The company also was required to
post notice it will cease interfering
with its employees' rights to join labor
organizations of their own choosing.
The Board ruled that the company
dominated the Federation and that a
plant superintendent warned against
workers joining the CIO's United
Auto Workers Union.

Slosson Denies Soviet Policy Is
Either Inconsistent Or Irrational,


Terms Russian Military
Power Uncertain Factor
For Next World War
Russia's present policy of collective
security in cooperation with the dem-
ocratic powers is not inconsistent or
irrational, Prof. Preston W. Slosson
of the history department said in a
lecture before Alumni University stu-
dents here last week.
The Soviet's switch from isolation
and the fight for a Communist In-
ternational in this decade is merely
a further example of her willingness
to use any means to attain her goal,
was the opinion of Professor Slos-
son. Soviet Russia's ends are fixed,
he said; her means follow the dic-
tates of realistic opportunism.
Russia realizes that its most for-
midable enemy now is fascism, Pro-

DETROIT, June 28.-(P)-The bat-
tle between two warring factions for
control of the United Automobile
Workers (CIO) neared a showdown
today as a spokesman for President
Homer Martin disclosed that charges
against five suspended international
executive board officers would be filed
Martin remained silent as to the
chargee and it was said at UAW
headquarters that he would not dis-
cuss the accusations before the sus-
pended officers present their case
to the executive board.
The Union constitution provides
that counsel retained by the five
ousted officials will have 15 days to
prepare his case. Either Martin or
Larry S. Davidow, UAW attorney,
will prosecute the charges before the
executive board. Maurice Sugar, for-'
mer member of the UAW legal staff,
has been retained by the suspended
officers to represent them.
Meanwhile, the "peace faction,"
which was formed over the week-end
to halt the internal warfare report-
ed progress.
Reports were that 47 locals who
have joined in theamove for peace
would call for immediate reinstate-
ment of the group of five. headed by

elisha, announced a military court
would probe a leak of secret defense
ata into the hands of the ,member
d parliament, Duncan Sandys, a con-

This affair directly involved the
hp-and-coming Hore-Belisha and the
,nti-aircraft guns with which. the
rar minister proposes to defend 45,-
00,000 Britons against bombing
)lanes in event of war.
Some members of the Parliamen-
;ary opposition saw a clear parallel
between the Sandys case and the
Campbell case" which resulted in
verthrow of the first MacDonald
overnment in 1924.
As in the present case, it involved
i motion for inquiry by a select com-
nittee. The "Campbell case" con-
,erned an unsuccessful attempt to
prosecute an editor for publication of
n article exhorting soldiers not to
ire on workers in wartime.
Sandys charged that Attorney
Deneral Sir Donald Somervell threat-
ened to use the secrets law to gag
him as an instance of what they
ermed repression of criticism which
ight ultimately break the present
government. -
