Belabored Spanish fascists suf
fered another defeat yesterday
when Loyalist troops took Alcar
acejos and Villaneuva del Duque,
key points in General Franco's
drive on the coal and mercury de
posits of the Pozoblanco area, gov
ernment officials announced.
Both sides gave out stories of
mutinies in their opponent's ranks.
Government sources told of whole
sale executions of fascist troops
because of anti-Italian feeling
among the Spanish insurgents.
Loyalists deserters described a
similar revolt in their own ranks
on the Asturian front, where 150
militiamen were said to have been
Conference Adjourns
The drawn out auto strike seem
ed near its end yesterday as Gov
ernor Murphy was hopeful for a
settlement when the adjourned
conference between strikers and
Chrysler officials convenes Friday.
At the same time the Illinois legis
lature pondered measures which
would make sitdowns a felony, ne
gotiations before strikes compul
sory, and negotiations with sit
downing workers a crime.
Settlement of the Chrysler
strike, which started March 8 as
a sitdown, would bring 70,000 auto
workers back to their factories.
Observers believed that this move
would speed up agreement between
employers and 10,000 Reo and
Hudson workers who have occupied
plants for the past 20 days.
More Court Comments
Declaring that the supreme
court reversal proved the "presi
dent is right," Senator Robinson,
Democratic leader of the court re
form supporters, added to the
reams of comment on the proposal
with a triple attack against Sena
tor Borah, Senator Glass, and Jus
tice McReynolds.
Calling Borah inconsistent,
branding Glass as using “vitrolic”
language, and accusing McRey
nolds as being unsportsmanlike,
Robinson urged support of Roose
velt in his efforts to deal with so
cial needs of the present through
interpretation of the constitution

Stealing Pants
Puts Kibosh on
Officer C. H. McGee uncovered
a lurid drama at the University of
Nebraska, recently, while on his
nightly tour of the campus. In the
vicinity of the Phi Alpha Delta
fraternity house he encountered a
stack of trousers, pajamas, and
various other garments.
Peering behind the array he be
held two rather youthful maraud

the car parked at the curb was

Charged with possession of an
undue amount of clothing, the ac
cused persons revealed the fact
that the trousers belonged to ac

during Hell week.
The marauders told such a con
vincing story that they were taken
to the police station for protection
after the officers returned the
clothing to the house.

Grades by Scents
John Madigan, instructor at the
College of St. Thomas, recently
was displeased with the grade on
a physics test. To express his opin
ion he scented the papers, with the
aid of chemist colleagues, with
good and bad perfume.
Those of an A and B class were
sprayed with “Paris Night" and
“Eau de Cologne." C and D
papers wrinkled noses with the
medium-strength odor of rotten
eggs—hydrogen sulphide.
But the seven of the E and F
class rocked stomachs with the
staggering smell of rancid butter

A peppy marching: song that will cheer on Oregon's fighting athletes
and. recall memories and traditions of the past is being introduced
around the campus before being presented at a large student assembly
