Ethiopia Sends Appeal
GENEVA — Emperor Haile Se
lassie of Ethiopia got in the first
blow as the council of the League
of Nations assembled today to re
view his menacing border quarrel
with Italy.
In a personal telegram to Gen
eva the "king of kings’’ appealed
to the league to halt Italy’s huge
program of military preparations
in northeast Africa and accused
Home of evading international ob
"Italy initiated a campaign of
propaganda in an endeavor to jus
tify her occupation of Ethiopian
territory as a mission of civiliza
tion and her aggression and rapac
ity against our people as the treat
ment due a barbarous nation,” his
telegram asserted.
French Fleet Moves
PARIS — France is transferring
her naval strength from Mediter
ranean waters, it was learned to
day, to protect herself against any
possible danger from Germany’s
naval rearmament.
The sea force which defends the
British channel and the North sea
is being strengthened. Four tor
pedo boats and the destroyer Lynx
are expected to be transferred
from the Mediterranean to the
channel fleet after maneuvers off
Morocco in early June, along with
other reinforcements.
This move coordinates the trans
fer of thousands of soldiers from
the Italian frontier to fortifica
tions along the Franco-German
border, following Adolf Hitler’s an
nouncement of military conscrip
Death Toll Reaches 18
300 and 500 families were being
moved out of the Oklahoma City
lowlands to escape onrushing flood
waters tonight as the southwest's
storm dead amounted to 18 with
damage estimated at $3,000,000.
Throughout much of the state
and in Texas as well, streams were
falling and the floods which ac
companied tornadoes in a climax
to drought-breaking rains surged
eastward and southward.
But as a slow rise in the North
Canadian river heralded and re
ported approach of a 15-foot wall
of water here, relief and rescue
efforts were accelerated.
Eli tier W rites Speech
BERLIN — Adolf Hitler spent
most of the day writing the speech
he will make to the Reichstag to
morrow night to tell the world
what the Nazi regime has to offer
' to alleviate European tension.
Der Fuehrer was buoyed by dem
onstrations in his honor at the
opening at Frankfurt-on-the-Main
yesterday of the Reich’s first road
exclusively for automobiles.
He will again face one of his
most critical moments tomorrow.
The largest Reichstag in history,
although one of the most impotent
which now has 669 members, in
cluding eight newly appointed dep
uties from the Saar, was chosen as
the forum for Hitler’s views.

Prevent Science
Course Return
Present Conditions Make
Change Difficult
Should the appeal for the return
of upper division science courses
made Wednesday in petition form
by members of the pre-medical
society be granted, financial condi
tions would probably prevent the
return., President C. V. Boyer de
clared in a recent interview.
In order to obtain an upper divi
sion course on the campus of either
the University of Oregon or Ore
gon State college in a field limited
to minor work in that institution,
the dean of the school in which the
course is requested must first be
“When either the University or
the State college wishes to give an
upper division course in a field of
minor work, if there is a demand
for service courses, the request
must first be presented to the dean
of the school on the campus where
the upper division work is pre
sented,” President Boyer said.
The action of pre-medic students
is not new, the president declared,
but has been adopted before in
other cases.
If the school of science on this
campus was financially able to
give upper division work as service
courses, the request would then be
taken to Earl Packard, dean of the
Oregon State school of science, and
George W. Peavy, presdient of
Oregon State college.
Should their approval be gained,
the next step would be to present
the request to the curricula com
mittee of the state board of
higher education for final approval.
