Characterizing the action of the A
Big Ten faculty committee on in- this

Iowa from the Conference as un- whi
duly secretive and ineffective, Con
President Clarence Cook Little yes- lati
terday issued the ensuing state- not
ment, based, it was asserted, upon fere
the truth of these following reports: tha
(1) that the conference found one pell
of its members guilty of infringe- P
ment of its rules on remuneration the
of athletics; (2) that the conference acc
refuses to make public the details of t
at this time; and (3) that the con- cha
ference breaks off relations with the I suP]
institution in question as of Janu- jct
ary 1, 1930. a g
President Little's Text hea
The text of President Little's tua
statement is as follows:tP
"If these are the true conditions, a b
one must without the details before affa
him agree that the action has been enc
taken in good faith. In my per- the
sonal opinion, however, it is an er- soo
ror not to have made the details bas
public at this time. To fail to do cus
so, giye opportunity for misunder- bee
Standing, uncertainty, misinterpre-
S'rlot, tumor and counter charges
of various sorts. These have already.
"One may, however, have definite
opinions as to the choice of Janu-
ary 1, 1930, as the date of effective-
ness of the action taken. This is
in my opinion a great mistake. If
the evidence was not sufficient to
justify immediate action, the de- I
cision should not have been Re
reached. If it was sufficient, it is'
certain that there are more men
now in the accused institution who
are worthy of suspension from con-
ference competition than therewill D
be next autumn. It is also likely by t
that there will be more of them in ulty
college at the start of any semester prof
than there will be at any other tor
time during that semester." - acti

Contli'ct With
Y.ost Rmred
Breakup Cause
With reports of E. E. "Tad" Wieman's resignation from the
coaching staff last night, followed by denial of the stories by Coach
Wieman, himself, the identity of the head coach for the Wolverine
football team for next fall became highly uncertain. Wieman,
head coach of the football squad and assistant director of ath-
letics for the past two years, was reported in an Associated Press
dispatch, based on an interview with a member of the Board in
control of Athletics, as intending to resign to avoid conflict with
Fielding H. Yost, director of athletics.
In a statement to a Daily correspondent last night, Wieman
definitely denied any intention on his part of severing connections
with the coaching staff. When called about the stories and denial,
Yost refused to comment upon the situation. Prof. William Frayer,
chairman of the board, emphatically denied the report of Wieman's
rsignation. Other members of the board when called denied the

report or refused to comment.
Decison Of Highest
Court Given As

When called by the Daily at
his residence last night, Coach
Elton E. Wieman strongly repu-
diated rumors that he was about
to resign his position as head
coach of the Michigan football
team. Coach Wieman, in deny-
ing that there was any basis of
truth in the stories which were
circulated, stated "I have abso-
lutely no intention of resigning
from the University of Michi-
gan coaching staff."

ENGLEWOOD,N. J., May 27.-
Miss Anne Morrow, daughter of
Ambassador and Mrs. Dwight W.
Morrow and Col. Charles A. Lind-
bergh were married at the bride's
home this afternoon.
The ceremony, witnessed by only

Immediately afterwards, Ambas-

The honeymoon plans of the cou-

The bride wore a simple white
chiffon dress with short veil made
for her by Miss Mary Smith, the
family dressmaker for years. She
wore no gloves, but carried a
bouquet of blue larkspur plucked
from the Morrow garden, just be-
neath them drawing room window

and completely "scooped" the small
