Mrs. Rasolie Lagler of Ann Arbor.
Following her graduation with

Himself A Bit
For New Job
ST. LOUIS, Aug. 13.-(P)-A raw-
boned, lanky man quivering with ex-
citement was sitting behind a micro-
phone in the broadcast booth high
above the playing field at Sports-
man's Park.
His graying hair dangled over his
forehead and his face was drawn in
emotional intensity.
Down below the St. Louis Cardinals
were battling hell for leather to hold
first place in the National League.
They hadn't come up with, such a
fighting aggregation since 1934, when
the great Dizzy Dean and brother
Paul won the World Series.
The score was tied in the eighth
inning. The Card had runners on
second and third with one out.
There was a sharp crack as the
bat connected with the ball-and a
crash of a chair overturning as the
announcer leaped into the air wav-
ing his arms and yelling "yoweeee-
you can't beat 'em."
It was Dizzy Dean himself, once
the greatest attraction in baseball,
in action as a .radio sports commen-
Although he still is somewhat of
a riot in the press box, old Diz isn't
the fire-eating popoff he used to be.
When he took the radio job-for
a reported $10,000 a year-he vowed
"they ain't gonna change me none,"
but he has settled down until the
umpires he used to heckle as part of
his daily diet would hardly know him.
He is taking' the job seriously.
On a close play at home plate the
other day he even remarked over the
"Well, I wouldn't attempt to call
them from up here where I sit, but
it looked to me like the ump was

He broadcasts an inning or two
each game and chimes in frequently
to give listeners some "inside" dope.
He admits he doesn't think he is
quite as good at hurling words as he
was at throwing fast balls, but states
frankly he is improving.

Summer greenery in night time
scenery will be the result of the
transformation of the League ball-
room for the Summer Hop, to be held
from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. tomorrow.
To produce this illusion, membersj
of the League Council have arranged
a backdrop sparkling with stars to
hang behind the orchestra and sum-
mer flowers and trees to surround
the ballroom floor.
Corresponding in importance in the
Summer Session social calendar to
the great J-Hop of the academic
year, the dance'will be a semi-formal
affair, with all students invited to
attend, whether with or without part
ners. Chairman Mary Habel has se-
lected a group of hostesses whose
duty it will be to provide introduc-
tions among the dancers.
Tickets for the dance may be

While the Soviet command in its
mid-day communique maintained its
reserve, other Soviet reports told of
the smashing of one German division
and the routing of another-both at
unstated points.
The most significant Russian suc-

the destruction by Red dive bomber;s
of the great Danube River bridge and
oil pipeline at Cerna-Voda. Thus, it
was declared, rail traffic. was para-
lyzed between the chief points of
German-allied Rumania and the Ru-

main part of Rumania "for a long
time to come."

IONIA, Mich., Aug. 13.-QP)-With

big-wigs of both major parties, com-

the state administrative board on the

a love feast was had by all.
Sole political interest of the gath-

of Judge Homer Ferguson, nemesis
of Detroit grafters and racketeers.
The luncheon gossip of politicians
said Ferguson would be a condidate

ator on the Republican ticket, prob-
ably the latter.

Vital1 Decision
Seen Pending
Move Expected As Result
Of Atlantic Conference
(Continued from Page 1)
there was an abundance of problems
for cac~zzion in developments in the
Far East,mFinFrance and in the Rus-
sian-German war.
New measures of collaboration on
the Far Eastern front to check Japan
and in the Atlantic to counter closer
French collaboration with Germany
were mentioned in speculation about
a Roosevelt-Churchill meeting.
Secretary Hull remained silent on
the Vichy government's "collabora-
tion" decisions pending more com-
plete diplomatic reports and an anal-
ysis of the whole French problem. He
likewise declined to comment on the
Far ; East except to announce the
resignation of Hugh S. Grant, Ameri-
can minister in Thailand-possible
next objective in Japan's program of
expansion. It was explained drant's
resignation had been submitted some
time ago and had no connection with
current developments.
Hull conferred with Alfred Duff
Cooper, new British coordinator in
the Far East, and British Empire
diplomats were present to exchange
ratifications of new conciliation trea-
ties between the United States, Aus-
tralia, Canada and New Zealand.
Possibly indicating a long suspen-
sion of trade with Japan was ex-
pected, Hull acted to preserve pres-
ent silk stocks in this country. He
revoked all licenses for silk exports,
except to the Philippines, and except
for small quantities to meet urgent
