Doheny library, Instead of Bovard auditorium. Sandburg, often referred to as ‘ the poet of the streets and the prairies,” gained sudden world-wide fame after the publication of ‘ Chicago.” Then nearly 40. he had been milkman, barber’s apprentice, carpenter, potter, truck driver, and hotel dishwasher. He had harvested in the west, been a soldier in action, headed a college basketball team. Sandburg was editor, advertising manager, party organizer, promoter of safety devices in manufacturing, wanderer, and observer generally. After participating in the trades of men he turned to writing. The poet uses as his subject the moving life of the common man: his speech is that of “everyday” individual. U.S. Takes Axis Ships in Raid Attempted Sabotage Prompts Swift Action to Safeguard Ports WASHINGTON, March 30— (U.P.)—The United States today took into protective custody two German, 28 Italian and 36 Danish merchant ships now tied up in United States territorial waters to safeguard American ports from sabotage. Some of the Italian vessels already had been sabotaged, the coast guard said, and it was learned that officials had “strong suspicions that sabotage would be attempted aboard the vessels of Nazi-dominated Denmark.” However, the coast guard said no evidence of sabotage was found on any of the Danish vessels. MORGENTHAU’S ORDERS In widespread, suddenly executed forays, armed coast guardsmen last night and throughout today boarded and took control of the foreign ships as they lay ln American harbors. They acted on orders from Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau Jr., who had urged and received approval for the move from President Roosevelt who is returning from a vacation in Florida waters. The action was taken under the 1917 espionage act which makes sabotaging of a ship in port an act of sabotage against the harbor. It was learned that the coast guard was not going to touch any other ships. DANES SEIZED Disclosure that the Italian and German ships were being seized was made early Sunday after naval intelligence officers had reported that Italian crews were destroying machinery on Italian vessels tied up at Norfolk, Va., and Wilmington, N. C. A late announcement by the coast guard that the Danish ships also had been seized came as a complete surprise, inasmuch a# officials had said they contemplated no move against Danish ships or those of neutral nations. Rear Admiral Russell R. Waes-che, commandant of the coast guard, told the United Press that the Danish ships were taken under protection custody because of fear of possible sabotage by “others than the crews.” givem the axe Stanford Man Renders Impressions of Troy By BILL COUGHLIN (Stanford Daily Staff Member!

I can never thank all those people individually, but I hope they understand how much I appreciate their trust. “Syd Barton will make a fine president.
