Competition is the spice of life . . . even in college. And so some 34
women students have signed up thus far for the three tournaments
tennis, golf and badminton . . . which the Women's Physical Education
Department is sponsoring this coming week. '
Practically every state is represented in one or the other of the two
contests . . . . so it should be something really big. Looking over the list
of entries it may be observed that graduates seem to have taken the most
interest in the tourneys ... many of them Michigan grads too.
Beatrice Masseman .. . who has entered both the tennis and badminton
tournaments . . . spends her spare time practicing furiously . . but in be-
tween sets she takes a little ride on her bike . . . to see what is
going on around her. Katherine Brown . . .whose father went
to the Olympics. . . is also confident of her skill with the racquet
. she will play in both the tennis and badminton tourneys.
Elsie Michalke is the third contender in two events . . . she
finds her ability lies in the direction of golf and tennis. Maxire
Bowling who hails from Oklahoma City . . . and who is, in-
cidentally, an expert swimmer . . . will play badminton. Eliza-
beth MacVey . . a representative of the State of Vermont
... Elizabeth McDowell and Jean Botsford ... . both Michigan
grads ....are likewise entered inthe regular badminton tourna-
Beatrice-Hutchins and Irene Lampkin ... who spend their time teaching
in Detroit during the regular year . . . and this summer are busy in the
workshops at Angell School . . . are taking time off to play golf. One dose
of tennis isn't enough for Ruth Hatfield . . . a regular session student
.. .she is playing in two tournaments . . . the city contest and that of
the Women's Athletic Association.
And so on and on . . . players and players . . . all planning to do their
best and win a trophy ... and may the best ones win.

Dinosaur Pays Curators Dividends

LANSING, July 14. - (P) - The
Michigan Supreme Court figured in
two payroll incidents today. In one,
it refused to accept the voluntary pay
reduction requested of all state of-
ficials by Governor Murphy. In the
other, it removed from the November
ballot a proposed constitutional
amendment to increase elective state
officials' salaries.
Without comment, the Court di-
rected its clerk to forward its payroll
for payment in the amounts "author-
ized by the Constitution, statutes and
exising orders of the Court."
A short time later, the Court ruled
that the legislature had so confused
a joint resolution ordering the refer-
endum on salaries that "it is impos-
sible to determine which proposition
was intended to be submitted."
The reference to inconsistency con-
cerned one section of the resolution
which would have set the Governor's
salary at $15,000 and that of *other
state officials at $7,000, and another
section of the same resolution which
would have granted i the Governor
$15,000 but would have given the
legislature the power to fix the sal-
aries of other elective officials.
The Justices of the Supreme Court,
who draw $12,000 each annually,
would have been subject to a 15 per
cent cut if they had accepted the
Governor'sdrequest. Court attendants
said the decision meant none of the
33 employes of the Court would be
subject to a pay reduction.

number of pitch registers. The first
step is to place in similar categories
all the discoverable tones of any one
tonal frame, such as a two-syllable
word combination, the categories de-
fined by similarities of tonal patterns.
In Mixteco, said Pike, there are eight
classes. The next step is to isolate
the high tones by comparison with
all tones which are lower, and then
to isolate the low tones. The process
must be carried out until all the tones
have been identified with pitch levels.
Mixteco has three pitch levels; a lan-
guage spoken by neighboring Indians
has four.
At this point the analyzer meets
the real difficulties, according to Pike,,
for in a tonal language there are
many complicating factors which af-
fect pitch. Prefixes and suffixes, for
instance, cause intricate tonal per-
turbations in near homonymic pat-
terns. At present Pike has analyzed
about 3,000 combinations, but said
that he will be unable to make defi-
nitive statements about the whole to-
nal system until he has recorded and
analyzed about 200,000 combinations.

Speech wasn't free at the Toronto meeting of Canadian Fascists who
thus removed one heckler doing what he could vocally to break up the
meeting. While this man was getting the bum's rush, protesting crowds
were milling outside the hall. The Fascists organized into the National
Unity Party and named as leader Adrien Arcand, a Montreal editor.

InI Leagne Play
Parkerites, P.K.S. Teams
Down Chumps, Snies
In American Circuit
After yesterday's play in the soft-
ball tournament, two American lea-
gue teams can still boast of a perfect
record. The Parkerites, behind the
pitching of Bill Poppink. of no-hit
fame. downed the Chumps 5 to 3.
while the P.K.S. team buried the
Snipes under an avalanche of hits,
winning 21 to 1. The P.K.S. boys have
been poison to opposing pitchers, for
they've piled up 34 runs in winning
their first two games.
In the final game in the American
league, the Profs nosed out the
Browns by a score of 9 to 8. The
P.K.S. and the Parkerites share first
place in the standings, with two vic-
tories each. The Profs. with two wins
and one loss, and the Chumps, with
one win and one loss, follow, while
the Browns and Snipes, with two and
three losses respectively, are keeping
he cellar positions filled.
The National league Chemists
swamped the Analyts'15 to 1, while a
favored Faculty team dropped a 4
to 3 game to the Pattocks. In the final
game, the Tigers registered their se-
cond sonsecutive shut-out, when they
beat the Physics 8 to 0.
The Tigers, being the only unbea-
ten team, are leading the league,
while the Chemists and Pattocks
share second place with two victories
and one defeat apiece. The Faculty
is next in the standings, with one win
and one loss to their credit. The Phy-
sics have won one, while dropping
two, which assures them of fifth
place, and the Analyts, having ab-
sorbed three straight shellackings,
are keeping a firm hold on the bottom
rung. Organization of the Interna-
tional League will be carried on Mon-
day instead of today as was previous-
ly announced.
Jean Kyer To Meet
Detroit's. GolfAce
DETROIT, July 14.-(AP)-Detroit's
ace woman golfer, Miss Margaret
Russell, will make her bid for the
state women's golf championship to-
morrow when she ties up with Jean
Kyer, of Ann Arbor, defending cham-
pion, at the Lochmoor Club.
Miss Russell, the medalist, clubbed
her way to the finals with a five and
three victory over Mrs. Donald Weiss,
tiny competitor from the Flint Golf
Club and 1936 winner while Miss Kyer
was eliminating Mrs. John Arends of
the Detroit Golf Club two and one.
The appearance of Miss Russell in
the finals will be her first, and al-
though Miss Kyer has reached the
finals three times, the consistent golf
displayed in the current tournament
by Miss Russell makes her an even
bet to defeat the defending champion.

"take hold of the wings o' the morn-
ing to flop hround the earth" with the
rising sun seemed close at hand when
Howard Hughes set down his globe-
girdling plane in New York, less than
four days after his start.
Hughes and his crew cut Jules
Verne's old dream of an 80-day jour-
ney around the earth to hardly more
than 80 hours. Tomorrow, next day,
within a decade, another Hughes may
rise into the stratosphere, hang mo-
tionless on the sun's flank above the
rolling earth and come down where
he started within a single day.
It is a possibility that grips man's
imagination, however earth-bound
his own trudge through life. Time and
space no longer mean much to hu-
manity. The earth span has been
cut already by the Hughes flight to
the proportions of a week-end jour-
ney; tomorrow it may be cut again
to the hand's breadth of a daylight
The nation acclaims the Hughes
flight, proud that it was Americans
in an American-made ship who ac-
complished that four-day miracle,
yet, amid the patriotic thrills there
lurks also grave concern for the peo-
ple not only of this country but of all
the Western Hemisphere. In the
rumble of Hughes' thundering motors,
mapping new air ways of peace
around the world, fancy could hear
also the din of bursting air bombs
in Spain and in China-and some-
how that din sounded closer than be-
fore. The security of the Western
World, behind its ocean ramparts, is
not so certain as it was before Hughes
took to the air four days ago.
A tribute by President Roosevelt to
Hughes and his men was certain.
Either in that tribute or elsewhere it
seemed highly probable to Washing-
ton onlookers that Mr. Roosevelt

Conference Will Discuss
Unemployment Act
DETROIT, July 14---I-)-Governor
Murphy indicated today he might call
a conference of relief and unemploy-
ment compensation officials to find
a means of caring for those persons
who quit WPA jobs in the hope of
receiving benefits under the state Un-
employment Compensation Act.
Frank A. Picard, chairman of the
State Unemployment Compensation
Commission, had announced previ-
ously that workers who left WPA jobs
would be compelled to wait at least
a month before receiving job insur-
ance benefits to which they might be
entitled because of private employ-
ment prior to their WPA jobs.
"If these men are destitute during
the interim before benefits are re-
ceived they should not be left without
subsistence" dtherGovernor asserted.
"They have children and dependents
to consider. I will go as far as the
state can to help them."
Picard warned WPA workers not
to quit their jobs without first con-
sidering whether they are eligible for
compensation and added that there
was some question as to the legality
of procedure in the case of WPA
workers qualifying for job insurance
George F. Granger, acting State
Emergency Relief Administrator, said
the state does not plan to assume the
burden of direct relief in carrying
over for four weeks persons who quit
WPA to await benefit payments.

state his conception of good neigh-
borliness and the relation his drive
for expanding national defense bears
to that doctrine.
Buckeye Star
Is Golf Victor
Hunt Eliminates Jacobs In
Western Amateur
SOUTH BEND, Ind., July 14.-(A)-
Barney Hunt of Columbus. 0., a form-
er Buckeye State public links cham-
pion, crushed the Western Amateur
Golf Championship hopes of sensa-
tional Burleigh Jacobs, Jr., of Mil-
waukee, today, eliminating the Wis-
consin youngster who yesterday won
medalist honors, in the second round
of match play, by a 4 and 2 margin.
Jacobs who fired poll a brilliant 67
yesterday to set a new course record
for the exacting Chain O'Lakes lay-
out in winning the medal, was the
tournament marvel for about 24 fleet-
ing hours. He squeezed through his
opening match play test, one up, over
Kenneth Young of South Bend, but
a combination of his own lapses on
the greens, and Hunt's steadiness,
blasted the 18-year old Milwaukeean's
chances in the afternoon.
Two former Western Amateur
title-winners, Johnny Lehman of
Chicago, and Paul Leslie of Jefferson
City, Mo., and Louisiana State
University, went to the sidelines with
Jacobs. William Reed, Jr., of In-
dianapolis, conquered Lehman, one
up,, after a 21-hole struggle in the
second round, and Leslie bowed to
the veteran Cleveland star, Maurice
McCarthy, by the same margin over
the regulation distance, in another
second rounder.
Wilford Wehrle of Racine, Wis.,
seeking a second straight title, and
Gus Moreland of Peoria, Ill., a form-
er Western champion, remained in
the battle however. Wehrle shot par
golf to whip Billy Sixty, golfing re-
porter from Milwaukee, 2 and 1, and
repeated in eliminating Eddie Meister
of Cleveland, 4 and 3. Moreland had
to tussle for both his victories, de-
feating Bob Sulzer of Cincinnatiaon
the final green in the morning, and
conquering Lyn Lardner, another
Milwaukee player, 2 and 1, in the
second round.
