SOFIA, Feb. 27 — <U.P) — British minister, George Rendel, announced tonight that Britain is “very near” to breaking off diplomatic relations with Bulgaria and that this nation may become a battleground as a result. “The ‘forerunners’ of a full-scale German military occupation already are evident in Bulgaria.” he said, “and Britain is determined not to repeat the error whereby she permitted Germany to pour a huge army into Rumania before breaking off diplomatic relations.” He alleged, in a statement to the press, that the higher-ups of the Bulgarian army “are under German influence,” that the police are largely under Nazi control and that the Germans control the press here. AID GERMANY These, he said, are instances of how Bulgaria is “wilfully aiding” Germany’s penetration. Rendel implied that Britain, if necessary, is prepared to go to war against both Bulgaria and Rumania and subject then to aerial bombardment. “The British government has no desire to take the initiative in bringing Bulgaria into the war but if we go (if a diplomatic break occurs) it means that Bulgaria may suffer grave consequences and become a theater of war,” he stated. He previously said that if Bulgaria was drawn into the war. because of a military occupation by Nazi troops thrusting down against Greece to force the Greeks to submit to a dictated peace with Italy, it would be Germany’s fault ‘NO INTENTIONS’ The German legation here, ln an official statement today, said that Adolf Hitler “has no intention of sending troops into Bulgaria.” In an implied warning to Bulgaria, Rendel said, that Britain would declare war before resorting to any aerial bombardments of trocp concentrations or lines of communication. Applicants must have a good academic standing, an interest in world affairs, personality, and a reasonable debating ability, stated Dr. Bacon, who is on the faculty committee which will choose the delegates. “An understanding of international affairs is the essential quality to be looked for in the applicants,” Dr. Bacon said. “Sophomores and jun-irs will have a better chance of be-iors will have a better chance of be-freshman or senior classes. A few seniors may be chosen, however. PAPERS REQUIRED Delegates will be required to write papers and to read them at the conference. Pan-Pacific problems will be debated at round-table discussions. The conference will start on August 3, when the students from Japan will arrive. Japanese delegates are required to pass rigid examinations in English and international relations. SC students who wish to apply should communicate with Dr. Bacon. Carl Ronning from Washington, D.C., will interview the applicants later in the semester. OFFICIALS NAMED Dr. Bacon, Dr. J. Eugene Harley, professor of political science. Dr. Catherine V. Beers, assistant professor of zoology, and Stanley Johnson, chairman of the southern California district of the conference will select the SC representatives. Students in any school or college of the university may apply. Last year's conference was held in Japan, at Tsudo university near Tokyo. Sixty American delegates attended the conference and toured parts of China, Japan, Korea, and Manchukuo. This year the Japanese delegates will travel through the states on the West coast and will spend several days in southern Califomia. no supermen here U. S. Professor Blames Sports for Physical Unpreparedness CHICAGO. Feb. 27 — <T.P) — The physical unfitness or the nation’s young men—as revealed by the large proportion of draft rejections —is due largely to over-emphasis on competitive sports. This statement was made tonight by Leon G. Kranz. professor of physical education at Northwestern university, and received a qualified endorsement from Robert May- by America for sports and physical education have been largely wasted. Far from producing a physically fit people, our sports program is in a large way responsible for the physical shortcomings indicated by the large number of draft rejections.” Kranz explained that physical educators have placed too much emphasis on competitive sports, re Miniatures Shown in New Exhibit Art work by members of the California Society of Miniature Painters will be exhibited in the national spring showing beginning March 2 in the Walter Harrison Fisher gallery.

Kranz based his conclusion that there have been more rejections of draftees for physical unfitness under the selective service act than there were under the World war draft on figures from Ccok county (Chicago). He said, “21.2 per cent of draftees here were rejected in 1917-18 as compared to 43 per cent in 1940-41, “The nation became concerned over physical education because of draft rejections in the last war.” he said, “and various sports programs received great impetus. “But the millions of dollars snent and in early discontinuation, even by good athletes, because the competitive age is short. Emphasizing the “obvious” necessity of physical fitness in the national defense program. Kranz criticized a wide variety of sports including golf, swimming, baseball, and basketball for their emphasis on individual skill rather than on good physical conditioning. He characterized as a “delusion” the belief that weekly participation especially in golf and bowling provide adeauate exercise Workshop to Present Three One-Act Plays With casting completed, the drama workshop will present series of three one-act plays in Touchstone theater on March 14 opening the spring season of play productions.
