NEW YORK, Aug. 18.-(P)-A repe-
tition of the 15-round thriller Henry
Armstrong and Lou Ambers unreeled
in Madison Square Garden last night
was promised New Yorkers today, but
they're going to have to wait some
time to see it.
Both Al Weill, manager of the de-
feated Ambers, and Eddie Mead, who
pilots Armstrong, first man in ring
history to wear three crowns at one
time, agreed to do an encore for Mike..
Jacobs as soon as Armstrong recovers
from the cutting up Ambers gave

Dr. Alexander Schiff, who took
more than 10 stitches in Armstrong's
lip, told Mead it will require two and
maybe three months for the lip to
mend properly. Armstrong will need
an additional month to get into con-
"Henry has one of the worst cut
lips I have seen in 30 years of treating

The holder of the featherweight,

Later the Negro will take a trip to
Honolulu with his wife.
Mead made it plain Armstrong has
no intention of surrendering the
featherweight title herwon from
Petey Sarron last October.

Ambers collected $33,860.22 for his

he spoke on "The Dawning Renais-
sance." At the service, the Summer
Chorus, directed by Prof. David A.
Mattern of the Music School led the
assembly singing and H. W. Schaf-
fer of the Grinnell Music Co. was
at the console of the organ, tempor-
arily installed for the occasion. Two
more Vesper services were held dur-
ing the summer, both on the Terrace
of the Library.
President Ruthven gave the prin-
cipal address at a breakfast held in
the Union honoring 450 students who
received their master's degree dur-
ing the. Summer Session. Professor
Hopkins was master of ceremonies
at the breakfast.
To enable Summer Session students
to visit points of scientific, industrial
and educational interest near Ann
Arbor, the University conducted, as
it has for many years, a series of
ten excursions. Groups made tours of
the City of Detroit, Greenfield Vil-
lage, the Ford River Rouge Plant,
the Cranbrook Schools, Niagara Falls
and vicinity, the General Motors
Proving Ground near Milford and
Put-In-Bay Island in Lake Erie. The
excursions were under the direction of
Prof. Louis J. Rouse of the mathe-
niatics department, except for the
trips to Niagara Falls and Put-In-

Irving D. Scott of the geology depart-
Add to this chronicle of events the

in abeyance, were pending.
Representative Thomas put in the
record a statement that when the
committee sought government offi-
cials, it repeatedly was told they
were "on vacation." He wanted par-
ticularly, he said, to reach Catherine
Kellock, an official of the WPA Fed-
eral Writers' Project, whose husband,
he added, was a publicity man for
the Russian embassy.
This led Representative Mosier to
express curiosity as to whether any-
one was "tipping off" the persons
whom the committee wished to ques-
He said he had seen some investi-
gators for the LaFollette Civil Liber-
ties Committee in the committee
"Are they trying to hamstring this
committee?" he asked.
"It looks mighty suspicious to me.

We put two and two together where
I come from."
Sobel and Halpern both told sub-
stantially the same story. They were
"recruited," they said,. by men whom
they knew to be communists. Com-
munists paid for their passports and
provided passage money, they testi-
fied. 'I
"It didn't take long to find out
that the whole setup was communis-
tic," Halpern said of the situation in
Spain, adding later:
"We went over there to fight for
an ideal and then found ourselves
under the Ogpu of Russia."
He said 3,000 to 4,000 Americans
had been in Spain during his time
"I know definitely that those boys
want to come back," he said. "If we
had thought Franco would repatriate
us we would have gone over to his
side in a minute."
