It’s about yesterday’s base ball game with the Washington i Tubby Graves Huskies and thie' less said the bet itors and deserves excepting, of course, Mr. La mar Gaw who pitched a fine game for the vis itors and deserves a little publicity for his efforts. In case you haven't heard al icauy, our uisunguisnea guesis won 3 to 0. Mr. Gaw, a brother of the Celebrated Wilson Gaw, who hit a home run last spring in his first appearance as a pinch hitter for the Seattle Indians, hurled masterfully. He confined Oregon to five hits, three of which were accumulated by Cliff Potter, who took Johnny Londahl’s place on third base. It’s No Use . Ken Scales was the victim. It was the third time this season that Ken has suffered when his asso- i ciates failed to give him any help in the way of runs. It’s a crying shame for a pitcher as good as j Ken to be forced to get along with the support he’s been accorded this j year. Potter, with his hitting, and Londahl and Shaneman, the cum bersome catcher, with some cred * itable fielding and catching, tried to help him along, but they couldn't do it all. The Huskies opened the proceed ings in the second inning. Therein Red Hutchinson doubled and > romped home when Weber knocked a single which Horner fumbled in left field. No further activity oc curred until the eighth when the lively visitors produced two more runs. Nelson opened with a walk. He was followed by Lee who sin gled. Nelson scored on Anshutz’ bunt, and Lee came in on another (Continued on Page Three) U. S.

Stephenson Smith’s Talk Tomorrow Will Send Net Stars ty Seattle As part of a program to finance the tennis season, S. Stephenson Smith, associate professor of Eng lish, will speak in Villard assem bly at 11 tomorrow morning on “Jazz, the Music of Today.” A nominal admission charge of 10 cents will be levied. All money taken in will be used to send the Oregon tennis squad to Seattle this week-end for matches with the University of Wasnington. Since the elimination of tennis as a Uni versity-backed sport, an organized attempt has been made under the voluntary leadership of Mr. Smith to make the tennis squad self-sup porting. This is the first develop ment of his plan. In addition to Mr. Smith’s talk, a talented staff will aid him in the presentation of the program. Jo sephine Rice will render many se lections from the works of John Al den Carpenter’s “Krazy Kat," and George Gershwin’s “American in Paris.” Sally Addlei#an, soprano, recently featured as Mrs. Peach urn in the “Beggar’s Opera,” will sing selections from the leading “blues” songs. Vinton Hall has promised to give some jazz arrangements of popular songs on the piano. In his lecture, Mr. Smith will endeavor to trace the relation be tween jazz music and the music modernistic and also all of the modernistic trends in the arts and literature. The layman is assured, how ever, that there will be nothing technical or unduly highbrow in the talk. If the program is suc cessful other money-raising meas ures will be provided for in the future to get matches with Ore gon State and other tennis-minded schools.

Assassination of Japanese Laid to Militaristic Greed The recent assassination of Pre mier Suyoshi Inukai by Japanese officers and cadets seems to be a warning to all politicians in Japan that the slightest failure to obey the mandate of the militarists will result in the most terrible conse quences to themselves, Dr. Harold J. Noble of the history department, an authority on Far Eastern ques tions, said in an interview yester day. “The murder of the Japanese premier," he declared, “should con vince the most skeptical that Ja pan's policy since last September has been largely directed by the military cliques rather than by the civil authorities.” Whether the assassination wiU result in eventual establishment of military dictatorship, he stated, or whether it will cause such a revul sion of feeling in Japan that the power of the militarists will be broken, is impossible to foretell at the present moment. Dr. Noble explained that the Minseito party, of which the mur dered premier was the head, ad vocates friendly relations with China, while the Seiyukai party which is now in power under the | leadership of Kisaburo Suzuki, who is slated to be the new pre- | mier of the empire, stands for a [ positive policy—using military ac tion if necessary. Dr. Noble said that under the j new government, and with the' pressure from the military groups, | j the bombardment and attack in I Shanghai was carried out in Feb ruary and March. But owing to a combination of economic forces and a world-wide condemnation, the Japanese government agreed to withdraw its Shanghai forces j (many of which are transferred to Manchuria for action there). ‘‘This relinquishment of the Shanghai gains which is apparent evidence that Inukai’s government doesn't and can’t plan to continue its aggression in Central China, appears to have been viewed by ultra-reactionary younger mem bers of Japan's armed forces as a betrayal of their program; and in consequence, they have murdered the man who aggressively has been carrying out their ambitions,” Pro jfessor Noble concluded. Lindy Not Fooled By Curtis’ Story 4Jafsie? Testifies | Dobson-Peaoock Expected To Be Questioned by Police Today BULLETIN TRENTON, N. J., May 17— (AP) —It was learned from an authori tative source tonight that a request had been dispatched from the at torney general’s office to Dean H. Dobson-Peacock at Norfolk, Va., asking if he could come here “col untarily” for questioning on the Lindbergh case. NEW YORK, May 17.—(AP) — The “Jafsie” of the Lindbergh kid naping case said tonight neither he nor Col. Charles A. Lindbergh had been “taken in’’ by John Hughes Curtis and his story of contacts with the abductors. “I knew it all the time and so did the colonel,” said the educa tor who on April 2 tossed a pack age containing $50,000 ransom to a man on the other side of a New York cemetery wall. “The colonel knew that I was the only one who had the real con tact, which was proven through the symbols, the suit and the pins.” Dr. Condon apparently referred to the three tokens by which he said he was sure he was dealing with the actual kidnapers—the cabalistic signature of the original ransom not?, the sleeping suit the baby had .worn when stolen and pins with which the child’s under garments were attached. “This is what broke my con tact,” Dr. Condon continued, as he dug into a pocket and produced a newspaper clipping bearing the headline: “Curtis says Colonel Lindbergh authorizes him to pay $100,000.” “The kidnapers saw that story and thought there was a chance of getting more money,” he aded. Dr. Condon said he thought there was a chance he might have been able to persuade the kidnapers to return the baby alive without the payment ' of any money, had he been able to get in contact with them early enough in the case. “We know plenty that has not come out yet,” he said cryptically. He said his motives for acting in the case were “patriotism,” the home, school, state and society.” In reply to a question about whether he ever had been afraid of the kidnapers, Dr. Condon said: "No. They broke contact with me when the baby was about to be returned and placed me in a i position of discredit in the eyes of j the country.” Fisherman Shoots Bass From Tree With Cun WALLACE, Idaho, May 17.— (AP)—Earl Elstone, out fishing, shot a four-pound bass out of a I pine tree with a shotgun. Here’s how he came to claim the title of “world's most unorthodox fisherman" today. A hawk caught the fish in its beak and flew to the tree, 50 feet above ground. Elstone cast aside his rod, grabbed his shotgun and blasted hawk and bass off a limb. Proof? Well, he has the bass, the hawk, the shotgun and a rep utation for veracity.

Pre-Law Students Issue Challenge Pre-law students, meeting last night at the Craftsmen’s club in their first official session, issued a challenge to members of the law school to a kittenball game to be played early next week. The game will be the first step, declared Tom Tongue, president of the underclassmen’s association, in the program to awaken more close contact between the pre-law ma jors and the studen.ts of the law school. Carlton E. Spencer, professor of law, gave an informal address, pointing out the necessity of a close relationship between pre-law subjects and the regular law cur riculum. Charley Offers Political Advice To Mr. Hoover Hard at Work Every one from the president .'own has swung into action on the Lindbergh case. Clues are as plentiful as wheat in -Dakota, and about just as valuable. Every police force from Hohokus to Walla .Valla has been deluged with hot tips. You can’t stir out of the house without stepping on a Lindbergh investigator. Like all other prospering en terprises, the kidnapping has now been afflicted with the great American racket. For $50,000 anyone would have told you where the baby was; and now for half that sum they’ll hand over the murderers. The presidential proclamation was hot stuff for Hoover. Got him all the votes in Hopewell. All he has to do now is find the murderers and the rest of the nation will vote for him. Prophetically, WEBFOOT CHARLEY. Parzych Tells Story of Lindy Baby Abduction Man Claims To Be One Of Kidnapers Names of Ollier Members Of Gang Revealed in Long Questioning NFAV YORK, May 17.— (API — Frank Parzych, 30, who told po lice here today he and five other men kidnaped the Lindbergh baby, was questioned for hours at police headquarters and then taken by a corps of detectives to an undis closed destination. An effort was made to reach Col. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, head of New Jersey state police, before Parzych was taken from police headquarters after 8:30 p. m., in a department car. Assistant Chief Inspector John J. Sullivan and two detective cap tains rode in the same car. Their machine was followed by another filled with detectives. Story Is Doubted Police earlier said Parzych, who was arrested on a wife abandon ment charge, admitted being a narcotic user and that he had been drinking heavily. Although they said they doubted the truth of his story, they started to check its details. The prisoner at first gave his name as Frank Smith but later admitted he was Frank Parzych, 30. His story was said by Police Mulrooney to be substantially as follows: A few months ago, while he was working on a rum runner, an oc cupation he pursued for eight months, he and five other men plotted to kidnap the Lindbergh baby. When their craft put into land, they went to a town in Long Island, where they made the lad der to reach the nursery window. Details Recounted The ladder was made in two parts and was of maple, Parzych believed. In a gray automobile, he and his companions drove to Hopewell.

Two Announce Candidacy tor Soph President Ferguson and Davis Toss Hats in Ring Aspirants of Other Classes Aetively Engaged in Boosting Taeties By JULTAN PRESCOTT Freshmen stepped into the po litical arena yesterday with the announcement that Bob Ferguson and Bill Davis are in the running for sophomore class president. This was the first definite step taken by the yearling class in facing the political situation. Both Ferguson and Davis will make official announcement of their tickets within the next few days. In the other classes, supporters of Cecil Espy and Orville Bailey, senior aspirants, and Neal Bush and Ed Schweiker, junior aspir ants, were boosting their candi dates wherever they met voters of doubtful allegiance. Both Bailey and Espy are ac counted strong tickets and any prediction of how the voting might go can be classed as pure guess work this early in the campaign. Bailey’s athletic record is expected to be offset some by the record of Espy for work with the present juniors. Journalism Vote Split The school of journalism vote, which might have been expected to swing with Esther Hayden, Es py candidate for secretary, was split between the two tickets when Bailey announced Betty Anne Mac duff for vice president. Helen Rai tanen 13 expected to draw strong support among the sororities which will offset the journalism vote for Miss Hayden. Marjorie Swafford, who Is opposing Miss Macduff, is banking on swinging a counteracting vote. Representatives of the Oregon Yeomen have met with Schweiker and pledged their support to his cause. Bush, on the other hand, has been lining up Greek organiza tions which he claims will more than offset the independent vote. \/uici \ uiiuiuiurn liisiru Candidates for the other junior class offices are Evelyn Kennedy and Maxine Heed for vice presi dent, Virginia Hartje and Nancy Suomela for secretary, and Les Dunton and Julius Rehal for treas urer. Mahr Reymers yesterday entered the battle with Bernie Hughes for senior class barber. Reymers said that he expected Hughes to drag down a pretty heavy athlete vote. But Reymers had no doubt of his ability to get together a line-up with a large number of fast re serves that will be able to wear down the heavy shock troops of the Hughes supporters’.
