A tremendous outdoor ice cream
festival, proceeds from which are to
be used to send medical aid to China,
will be held next Friday and Satur-
day on the mall between the League
and Hill Auditorium.
A committee h'eaded by Beth O'-
Roke, president of the League, has
been planning the affair for several
weeks. Tables and chairs will be set
up on the streets running down to
the Rackham Building, making the
mall one huge outdoor cafe. A singlel
great stand will furnish ice cream
for the gathering.
On the Rackham Building steps,
Earl Stevens and his orchestra will
play for outdoortdancing. Attempts
are being made to bring one of the

dents also will maintain a special
stand where oriental delicacies may
be purchased. Chinese dumplings
will be made on the spot and sold to
those in attendance.
Tentative plans call for a special
concert by the University Summer
Session band, in Hill Auditorium in
connection with the Festival.
Members of the committee in

WASHINGTON, July 13. -(P)-
Representative Hook (Dem.-Mich.)
described in the Congressional Record
today a speech on "the shocking state
of affairs" at Louisiana State Uni-
versity and recalled he had cited to
Congress several times "a state of
affairs existing" in a land grant col-
lege in Michigan which he asserted
"parallels in many respects the shock-
ing state of affairs in Louisiana.",
"The ring in control of Louisiana
politics has controlled the develop-
ments of their State university.
"In Michigan it is the 'McKay
Gang' of Blue Water Bridge fame, not
to forge the reported payoff on the
bonds of the million-dollar student
dormitory at the Michigan State Col-
lege, working through such stooges
as Melvin McPherson, Clark L. Bro-

Agriculture and college officials.
"They have prostituted the Michi-

"The McKay-Brody ring has been
more successful in covering their

was running rampant this Republi-
can machine group was influential

Hook charged that oJseph Baldwin,
then assistant doorkeeper of the
Unitedt ates Senate, made an assist-

"by whitewashing all those connected

Music Subject
Of Dr. Berrien
California Professor Talks
At Five This Afternoon.
In Rackham Building
Dr. William C. Berrien of the Uni-
versity of California, visiting member
of the faculty of the Latin-American
Institute, will describe "Musical
Activities in Latin-America" at 5
p.m. today in the Rackham Auditori-
Dr. Berrien will discuss the activi-
ties of the Latin-American composers,
showing how they have faced the
problems of composition and of build-
ing an interest in music in their
countries. On the whole, the best-
known of these composers in the
United States are those from Brazil
and Mexico.
A natural cultural exclusiveness
tends to exist between the different
Latin-American countries, and Dr.
Berrien will explain how the works of
certain composers have become known
in all of the countries. Immediately
preceding his talk, there will be an
informal program of Brazilian re-
cordings in the Rackham Auditorium.
Dr. Berrien, who is instructor of
Portuguese and Spanish at the Uni-
versity of California, has made a
study of the Latin-American musical
activity and has worked with some
of the composers of whom he will
speak today. He has written several
articles on the subject.
Delphi Is Subject
Of Speech Today
Dr. Roger Pack of the Latin depart-
ment will address the Latin Institute
on "A Visit To Delphi" at 11:10 a.m.
tomorrow in Room 2003, Angell Hall.
The lecture will be illustrated.-

tute will be featured by a lecture

Waste Seven Weeks Work
As Sub Plunges Down
After Breaking Water
Exonerate Worker
In Air Carrier Fire
PORTSMOUTH, N.H., July 13.-
(/P)-Pure luck and skillful handling
of their craft saved 20 navy men from
being thrown into the sea late today
as. the partially flooded submarine
Squalus broke away from a salvage
crew and plummeted back to the
ocean bottom through a tangled net
of lifting equipment.
The men were in two of the sal-
vage vessel Falcon's whaleboats-10
to a boat-close to the larger craft's
side when pontoons, air hose, buoys
and the Squalus' bow shot skyward
like a geyser without warning.
"Go back," men shouted from the
Falcon's deck, and the crews of
whaleboats, who had been waiting to
close the bow pontoons' valves when
they broke the ocean surface, ma-
neuvered their craft out of the surge,
of water.
The Squalus had reared suddenly
from the ocean depths like a giant
fish seeking freedom from an ang-
ler's hook.
Thus, in one disastrous minute,
seven arduous and dangerous weeks
of salvage preparation were all but
nullified. Hardly hadthe Squalus
resettled, however, when the Navy
actually began to .build a new lifting
effort upon the wreckage of the old.
Preparations were made to work
through the night.

About $700 Raised

The drive, which was carried out
by sun-tanned youths especially
brought in from the Camp for the
day, failed to match the results
achieved last year. When the total
is known, however, the previous sum

Long Service
To University
Cardiac Attack Brings End
To Professor Who Was
Pioneer In Physiology
Work Recognized
By Many Groups
Dr. Warren Plimpton Lombard, for
more than 30 years . professor of
physiology in the University Medical
School, died yesterday morning fo-
lowing a cardiac attack.
Dr. Lombard's death ended a ea-
reer which had brought him such
honors as the presidency of the
American Physiological Society and
the University Research Club. He
was credited with playing an im-
portant part in the development of
modern medical teaching.
"The faculty and alumnf of the
medical. school mourn the death of
Dr. Lombardi," Dr. Albert C. Fursten-
berg, Dean of. the School of Medicine,
said yesterday. 'As one of the pion,
neers' of this institution and a na-
tional figure in the field of physiol-
ogy, he made Irmany epochal contribu-
tions to the progress of medirne.
"His teaching and stalwart citizen-
ship have set an example which will
not fail of lasting influence at Mich-
igan. He dedicated his life to the
students of our medical school and
gave generously of time and effort
that they should obtain a full mea-
sure of help and education. The
University has suffered the loss of
a great scholar, a benefactor and- a
loyal friend."

cians and Surgeons in New York

again. In 1889 he returned to this
country and became assistant pro-
fessor of physiology In Clark Univer-
sity where he remained until he was
appointed to the professorship of
physiology and histology here , in

arly research an medicine. In 1923
he retired and received the title of.
Professor - Emeritus, donating his
large medical library to the Univer-
sity. The library is kept in a special.
room in the East Medical building.
Dr. Lombard had published many

Nazi government is nothing more or
less than communism, 'Walter L.
Badger, former member of the Uni-
versity faculty, said yesterday in re-1
viewing his recent trip to Germany.1
This year's , trip, he explained,
showed a greatly changed attitude on
the part of the one group with whom
he came into direct contact. Last year,
although he talked with a great many
more people and lectured extensively
in many places, he received no per-
sonal impressions from the German
people as to the government and their
relations to it. This year, however, he
found that individual opinions were
forthcoming, and that the attitude of
patriotism and 'Heil Hitler' was very
definitely changed.
Fed up with Nazi policies, and feel-
ing strongly about the harsh treat-
ment of the Jews, those to whom Mr.
Badger talked seemed to feel that the
breaking point is inevitably nearing.
Taxes are so high that small business
is virtually being crowded out, and
while big business is in part, and in
some cases wholly controlled by the
German government, no official state-
ments are available as to the extent
to which this is true, nor as to how
successful these businesses are in re-
gard to their individual interests. The
external business status remains the

these, and the oppressed Jews, the
concentration camp has become the
symbol of Der Fuehrer's power.
Food shortage, Mr. Badger said,
has become a great problem even in
the hotels which have up to this time
catere dto tourist trade. Butter and
cream are kept in cold storage and
meat is almost impossible to buy.
Prices are skyrocketing to the extent
of putting bare necessities beyond
the reach of thousands.
One illustration of communistic
tendencies on the part of Nazis, Mr.
Badger pointed out, is the fact that
it was formerly understood that every
girl of the working class between the
ages of 18 and 20 who intended to
marry or to hold any domestic posi-
tion must go to a labor camp where
she learned cooking and sewing, for
a period of six months. This spring
it became compulsory for every gir]
of that age, regardless of her cir-
cumstances, to attend such an insti-
tution. Furthermore, women and
children are now compelled to work
in the fields and assume other jobs
so that the men may take up military
