LONDON, Aug. 3.-(P)-A diplo-

tives of two of Japan's most powerful
farilies-a seizure that almost para-
lleled the recent arrest of Britons
in Japan-appeared to be developing

The agency attributed the report
to the Berlin wireless. The Japanese
earlier had expressed objections to
the British blockade of Europe which
now extends from the Arctic to North
Britain's arrest of the Japanese
brought a swift reaction.
Protests To Halifax
The Japanese ambassador, Namoru
Shigemitsu, went to the very top-
to Foreign Minister Lord Halifax
himself-to make a "strong protest"
and in a 20-minute interview with
the Viscount he was reported to have
made an outright demandthat the
internees, Saturu Makihara and
Shunsukei Tanabe, be released forth-
Makihara and Tanabe, agents of
the fabulously wealthy Mitsubishi
and Mitsui families-members of a
small group of such families which
controls nearly all Japanese industry
and finance-were arrested quietly
during the night and other reports
inddated that 'arests of -other Ja-
panese were going forward all over
the British Empire.
othing was said officially by the
British but unofficially it was de-
clared that the arrests were made
on the grounds of national "security"
under the act regulating aliens in
Spy Syndicate Reported
At the same time, sections of the
London press carried reports of the
ferreting-out of a widespread spy
syndicate in the Empire, especially
in Canada, Australia and Burma.
All this provided a set of circum-
stances almost identical under which
the Japanese had made arrests of
British subjects-arrests which were
declared in Tokyo to have been made
because of the existence of a spy
ring in Japan-but authoritative
British sources insisted impassively
that nevertheless London's action was
not at all a reprisal.
If there were strong similarities
between the two incidents, it was
said it was just a "pure coinci-

Established in 1909, the Biological
Station has held an eight weeks'
session every summer since. It was
founded with two principle objec-
tives in mind, to investigate biologi-
cal problems and to bring students
and teachers into direct contact with
living animals' and plants in their
natural surroundings.{
The area in which the Station is
located is well suited to its purpose.
Lakes of all sizes, bog lakes, bogs,
brooks and rivers as well as large
tract sof unoccupied wild lands in-
cluding pine and jackpine plains,
hardwood forests, fir, spruce and
cedar swamps, sand dunes along the
shores of the greatlakes and farm
lands furnish an extraordinary va-
riety of conditions for the study of
animals and plants.
The staff of experts from the Uni-
versity here and other colleges and
universities all over the country is
headed by Prof. Alfred H. Stockard
of the zoology department as direc-
tor of the Station. This summer 116
students are enrolled, of whom 93
are graduate students, 75 are men
and 41 women.

Merle Gulick of Dowagiac in the
finals of the two-day meet here.

Japan Protests
New Aviation
Gas Embargo
Less Facilities Available
For Refining Own Fuel
Is Discrimination Claim
WASHINGTON, Aug. 3.-(P)-Ja-
pan protested formally today against
the embargo which makes it impos-
sible for her to purchase aviation
gasoline in this country.
Kensuke Horinouchi, the Japanese
ambassador, handed a note of pro-
test to Sumner Welles, Under Secre-
tary of State, on instructions from
his government.
The Japanese envoy would not dis-
close the contests of the message to
reporters afterward, except to say
that it dealt with a commercial mat-
From reliable sources it was
learned, however, that the note pro-
tested against the aviation gasoline
embargo on the ground that it was
discriminatory against Japan.
One basis that may have been cited
for this claim of discrimination, it
was said, was that the embargo would
effect the Japanese much more than
the British because Japan had less
facilities for refining its own avia-
tion fuel

Administration Drive For
Senate Votes Is Begun;
Much Opposition Seen
Maloney Is Drafting
Middle Ground Bill
WASHINGTON, Aug. 3.-(M)-An
Administration drive to. line up the
Senate votes needed to pass the
Burke-Wadsworth compulsory mili-
tary service bill was begun today,
but so much opposition was mani-
fested that some supporters predic-
ted a compromise would be neces-
Although Senator Burke (Dem-
Neb), one of the co-authors of the
bill, predicted that less than 20 oppo-
sition votes would be cast, Senator
Lee (Dem-Okla), an advocate of
compulsory service, said an informal
survey indicated it would be neces-
sary to seek some middle ground in
order to get the measure through the
House, as well as the Senate.
Burke said it was his understand-
ing that Senator Byrnes (Dem-SC)
would be the unofficial leader of Ad-
ministration forces. In the past, he
said, Byrnes has had extraordinary
success in winning approval of con-
troversial measures.
In connection, with the talks of
compromise, Senator Maloney (Dem-
Conn) disclosed he was drafting a
proposal which he said he felt both
opponents and proponents of the
conscription bill could accept.
The Burke-Wadsworth bill, sche-
duled' for final approval Monday by
the Senate Military Affairs Commit-
tee, provides, in general, that 12,000,-
000 male citizens between 21 and 30
years, inclusive, should be registered
for possible military service. From
these registrants local boards would
select 400,000 who would be called to
Maloney said his substitute would
propose that the registration be car-
ried out as provided in the Burke-
Wadsworth bill, but that conscription
be delayed for several months, pos-
sible until January 1.
In the meantime, voluntary en-
listments for one year's training
would be attempted, with the basic
Army pay scale being raised from
$21 to $30 a month.
If there were insufficient volun-
teers to meet the Army's require-
ments by the specified date, con-
scription would go into effect auto-
matically. .However, only enough
conscripts would be summoned to
make up the difference between the
number who had volunteered and
the quota which previously had been
fixed by the Army.
Negroes Want Their Part
Of Defense Program
3.-(AP)-Southern Negro leaders to-
day called for racial opportunity "in
proportion to population" to train
for defense skills and combat servie.
. Dr. Benjamin F. Hubert of Sa-
vannah, Ga., chairman of the state
central planning commission, de-
clared before the body that Negroes
should be "more thoroughly coor-
dinated" into the defense program.
Such coordination would materi-
ally assist in raising the economic
level of approximately 14 million Ne-
groes in the natipn, he said.
Hubert asserted the commission
proposed to seek military training
for all Negro high schools and land
grant colleges and to enlarge facilh-
ties of vocational training in metal
work, mechanics and carpentry,
The commission outlined a pro-
posal that Negroes be allowed to
serve in all phases of combat ser-
vice, such as Army, Navy and Air
I Corps, as well as "behind the lines
in labor battalions."

The University City of ,Ann Arbor
rates second only to Detroit in the
state in the number of entries in
the 1940-41 edition of Who's Who in
America, recently published.
Yet, Ann Arbor has an edge on
Detroit. Her 179 listings represent
slightly more than six tenths of one
per cent, of her population, while
Detroit's 280 listings include only
less than two hundredths of one per
cent of that city's people.
The University itself, of course,

ence in proportion. Approximately

Newsmen Shown
That Hamburg
Is Undamaged
HAMBURG, Germany, Aug. 3.- )
-A small group of German, Italian
and American journalists rode into
Hamburg today on the hard benches
of a military transport plane, but
in a swift two and one-half hour trip
through the. city saw canoeists pad-
dling .on shady canals and business
in full swing.
The trip was arranged hurriedly
by the propaganda ministry in re-
sponse to British reports quoted by
the German press as saying this im-

Fraternities active athletically are
also outstanding scholastically: thus
concludes Frank K. Myres in pre-
liminary work recently completed
here toward a masters thesis.
Using as the basis of his data the
record of the 41 active fraternities
on the Michigan Campus, Mr. Myres
found a scholarship-athletic parti-
cipation correlation index of .824, on
the scale of 1.000 for complete cor-
relation and .500 for random dis-
tribution. The lowest correlation
found was .76, the highest .83.
The scholastic records were based
on the average point grade of the in-
dividual fraternity group and the
total number of intramural points

sports for a period of five years, and
experienced a corresponding decline
in scholastic achievement. Actively
participating again the following
year, the group immediately climbed
again in its scholastic rating.
"It cannot be stated that the on
factor causes the other to exist," he
further concludes, "but rather it
shows a definite association betweer
the energetic personality and th
more active type of recreation in the
desirability of wholesome achievement
of the group or individual . . . par-
ticipation in physical activities brings
about better health due 'to regular
habits of sleep, diet and moderate
living, and the individual is more
ref reshed mentally and physically.'
