IOWA CITY, March 22. UP)--Two members of the University of Iowa faculty were conceded the "inside track" today for the presidency o: the state university, succeeding Dr Walter A. Jessup. Most of the unofficial speculation regarding Dr. Jessup's succesor centered around Dean Chester A. Phillips of the College of Commerce, and Prof. C. M. Updegraff of the College of Law. While board members have avoided commenting officially upon the names of possible candidates from which the next university president will be selected, sources in close touch with university affairs maintained that the list had narrowed to the two men. At Next Meeting. It appeared certain that the selection would be made at the next meeting of the board between April 5 and 15, and that the man would be named from the faculty here. Members of the board seemed certain that they would he ready to announce their selection at the April meeting. They asserted that it would be impossible to interest an eligible man from outside the faculty because of the present salary limitation. The state legislature at its last regular session fixed the maximum salary for the university president at $10,000. It was reported that the board had contacted Dr. Henry JSoughton, former dean" of the college of medicine here, but Dr. Hough ton was "not interested." Two Other Names. Only two other names besides those of Professors Updegraff and Desn Phillips figured prominently in local discussions. These were Dean Eugene A. Gilmore of the college of law and Dean C. C. Wiliams of the college of engineering. Dean Paul C. Packer of the college of education whose name was suggested among the first, is definitely not a candidate for the post President Baker has confirmed the report that Dean Packer would not accept the position if it were ten. dered him.

Predict Entry of Soviet Russia in League of Nations PARIS, March 22. (/P--The entry of soviet Russia into the league of Nations at the September as- sembly was predicted in diplomatic circles today. Since Turkey joined the league July 6, 1932, the Moscow government is reported to have shown a strong tendency in favor of following suit. Germany's abrupt break from the league last Oct. 14, is regarded as having further contributed to an atmosphere favorable to Russia's admission. Today's reports said soviet government leaders have been sounding out member powers and have received assurance that Russia would be welcomed to the league. Today it was suggested that the possible entrance of Russia might now result in bringing back her neighbors, Germany and Japan. The problem of the stock ex- thange appears to be to devise some plan for being good that will not interfere with business.--Indianapolis News. ADMIT AUSTRIAN REPUBLIC 'DEAD' Nation in Future Will Be Known as "Federal State of Austria." VIENNA, March 22. (let--The first definite admission that the Austrian republic is dead was contained today in an official government gazette, which said the cabinet was still discussing details of a new constitution but has decided- .hat the word "republic" will not appear in it. Austria in the future will be referred to as "the Federal State of Austria" or simply as "Austria," the gazette slated. Wilhelm Hildas still holds the of- fice of president but the gazette does not mention this detail. In itself "president" of Austria is a title not necessarily implying the existence of a republic. Further preparing the way for a new state, the government today began taking a census, particularly leauiring information of previous military service, whether in the old imperial arms forces or the militia and home guards groups of new Austria. Information regarding sports training and physical handicaps was also demanded of all male citizens between the ages of 14 to 50. Special orange colored blanks were provided for this information, which was kept separate from regular census data. It was pointed out that these blanks could be used to make new recruiting lists replacing those destroyed when Austria was disarmed by peace treaties.
