enacted by Congress as a defense
against "Fifth Column" activity, Mr.

law on the statute books, defense
developments included:

First of six lectures to be present-
ed this week in the Graduate Study
Program in American Culture and
Institutions centered around the
general theme "Regional Varieties
of Cultural Development" will be a
talk on "American Literature as an
Instrument for Cultural Analysis"
at 8:15 p.m. tomorrow in the audi-
torium of the Rackham School by
Prof. Howard M. Jones of Harvard
University, former member of the
faculty here.
Professor Jones, author, play-
wright and poet, is also literary edi-
tor of the Boston Evening Transcript.
He has taught at the University of
Texas and the University of North
Carolina in addition to Harvard and
six years as professor of English
here, from 1930 to 1936. He has been
at Harvard since.

"The Life of Moses CoitTyler,"
"They Say the Forties," and "The
Harp That Once." With E. E. Leisy

Of Chairman
Sub-Committee Established
To Confer With Willkie;
Hamilton Is Considered
PHILADELPHIA, June 29.-()-
The rear guard of the Republican
National Convention squabbled over
the' selection of a National Party
chairman today and settled the is-
sue temporarily by appointing a sub-
committee to confer with Wendell
Willkie andl choose the man.
Im>ortant influences backed a
move to continue John D. M. Hamil-
ton in the job, with- Willkie's ap-
parent concurrence. The opposition
had the leadership of Alf M. Lan-
don, the 1936 presidential nominee,
who at Cleveland four years ago
selected Hamilton as his pre-con-
vention manager.
Later Hamilton, in a statement,
termed a creation of a sub-commit-
tee "very natural in view of the
rapidity with which events have
moved in the last few days."
This affords Willkie the "needed
opportunity" to consider campaign
plans, Hamilton said, and added that
meantime the present "staff" of the
committee will continue to function.
Willkie, meanwhile, left the city
without making known his choice.
He and his attractive wife sailed as
guests of publisher Roy Howard
aboard the yacht Jamoroy for a brief
sea voyage.
Dean Hunts Prowlers
As Police Hunt Dean
A radio squad car with two patrol-
men was rushed to Dean Walter B.
Rea's house Friday night to appre-
hend a prowler reported by neigh-
bors to be lurking about the house.
Stalking stealthily around the
side of the house, the officers nabbed
the prowler-who turned out to be
the honorable dean himself, hunting
night-crawlers with a flashlight.

And Progress Featured
Beginning its summer series of
moving pictures, the Art Cinema
League will present four examples
of the American documentary film
at 8:30 p.m. todaykin the amphi-
theatre of the Rackham School.
The films to be shown are "The
River," "The City," "The Plough
That Broke the Plains," and "New
Schools for Old."
A few remaining tickets may be
purchased today at the League and

World's Fair last year. Each deals
with specific problems facing Amer-

being made toward their solution.
Students enrolled in the Graduate
Study Program in American Culture
and Institutions are especially urged
to attend.
"The River" is, of course, the
Mississippi, and concerns flood con-
trol and power utilization. "The
City" concerns housing and city
planning, comparing the metropolis
of today to the ideal. "The Plough
That Broke the Plains" has to do
with land conservation and the
problems of the dust bowl. "New
Schools for Old" deals with the mod-
ern American school.
The three other films that will be
presented during the summer by the
Art Cinema League are "Grand Illu-
sion," "The Childhood of Maxim
Gorky," and "Kameradschaft."

"American Policy in the World Cri-

Monday during the Summer Session,
according to Dr. Louis A. Hopkins,
director. Professor Ehrmann's lec-
ture will serve as background mater-
ial for the lectures which will fol-

composed of Prof. A. E. R. Boak of

W. Bromage of the political science
department, Prof. John Dawson of
the Law School and Prof. Charles
Remer of the economics department.
Most of the speakers in the series
will be selected from the faculty, Dr.
Hopkins said, but an effort will be
made to secure the participation of
authorities from other parts of the
country in succeeding lectures.
This series of lectures is consid-
ered an outgrowth of the wide public
interest in the position of this coun-

Turkey Ready
To CallTroops,
BUCHAREST, Rumania June 29.
-(/P)-Germany and Italy tonight
promised military and air assistance
to Rumania, it was reported on high
authority, if Soviet troops attempt
to make further advances into this
patchwork kingdom-beyond the areas
reluctantly ceded by King Carol.
Informants who are close to both
palace and cabinet said the axis pow-
ers had given broad and flat assur-
ances that any more penetrations
would be stopped.
Bessarabia, which the Russians al-
ways have called the land of milk
and honey, already is under the
heavy tread of the Soviet military
In a comparatively bloodless occupa-
Russian sources said, too, that the
principal cities in Northern Buco-
vina-the other area yielded by Carol
under a Moscow ultimatum-are now
in control of the Red army.
The chaotic state of affairs and
the lack of good communications
from Bucharest to the provinces
made it difficult to learn at what
point in the .north the Russians had
halted, but the latest semi-official
word was that they had pushed on
as far as Dorohoi, some 15 miles
beyond the western boundary of
Bessarabia and thus well within old
Russian informants declared, how-
ever, that this penetration beyond
the agreed line was "probably a mili-
tary error."
There were, at the same time, signs
that at least two possible sources of
conflict were quieting.
These involved Bulgaria and Hun-
gary, which have claims of their'own
for Rumanian territory. It seemed
clear, from information received by
diplomats here, that their demands
were being calmed.
Military Preparations
Made In Hungary, Bulgaria
BUDAPEST,+ June 29-(')-Mili-
tary preparations continued in the
Balkans tonight although it was be-
lieved that Hungary and Bulgaria,
under diplomatic pressure from Ger-
many and Italy, had decided to de-'
fer their revisionist claims upon Ru-
If this postponement of demands
is definite and the crisis in the Bal-
kans has been surmounted, it is as-
sumed that a clear promise was given
by the Rome-Berlin axis partners
that the claims of Bulgaria and Hun-
gary will be met in full later.
Political observers opined that
Bulgaria and Hungary were told to
wait until Southeastern Europe has
been "reformed" under a policy of
"peaceful revisionism."
These observers viewed the pro-
ceedings as a diplomatic victory for
Germany and Italy at a time when
they need peace in this important
production area.
Berlin and Rome were believed to
have assured Hungary she need have
no fear that the Russians would ad-
vance so far into Rumania as to
jeopardize Hungary's Transylvanan

Sen. Johnson Backs New
Alliance Of Pacifists
WASHINGTON, June 29. -(AP)-
Senator Johnson (Dem.-Colo.) call-
ing Wendell Willkie an "interven-
tionist," asserted today that there
would be a third party-"The Peace
Party"-if the Democratic presiden-
tial nominee also was one.
"The mothers, the 'cannon fodder,'
and the veterans of this republic de-
mand a vote on the question of peace
and they shall have it," Johnson add-
ed in a statement.
The Colorado Senator is support-
ing Wheeler of Montana for the
Democratic nomination.
Wheeler has been critical of the
Administration's policy of aid to the
Allies, and two weeks ago in the
Senate declared that he would "break
with the Democratic Party" if it be-
came a "war party."
With the Republican Convention
over, capital political interest veered

vention at Chicago beginning July

SAGINAW, June 29.-(P)-For two

24-year-old collegiate vagabond who

Riding his thumb isn't anything

different from the others.

After he leaves Saginaw, Friers
will go to Mexico and, from there,'
south to Guatemala, Nicaragua, Cos-
ta Rica, Panama, Venezuela, Colom-
bia, Ecuador, /Peru and then back
home. He has $40 for the trip, but
since he returned only last Decem-
ber from a $30,000 round-the-world
cruise during which he spent just
$81.97, the University's famed vaga-
bond isn't worried. Articles writteni
for a chain of newspapers will help
support him.
Aside from getting the photo-

other objectives. He wants to be
around if revolution breaks out in
