"Beat Harvard" Will be Slogan
of Students at Pep Rally
in 'Hill Auditorium.
Michigan Band to Lead Parade
Calling Students to '
Support Team.
"Beat Harvard" will be the war-
cry of thousands of loyal Michigan
students when they assemble at 7
o'clock this evening in Hill au-
ditorium to prime the determined
Wolverines for the Crimson inva-
sion tomorrow. Chief crier of the
"Beat Harvard" slogan will be J.
Fred Lawtop, '11, composer of 'Var-
sity, campus "big shot" in his un-
dergraduate days, and an expound-
er par excellence of Michigan
It was Lawton who at the Illi-
nois pep-meeting last year told a
discouraged but hopeful crowd of
students that Michigan could and
would upset the Zuppkemen despite
the four straight defeats that the
Maize and Blue had experienced.
And the Wolverines won.
While a student, Lawton held
honors and positions galore. He was
a campus.politician of no mean or-
der, was a member of The Daily
and Garogle staffs, of three honor
societies and the Board of Control
of Students Publications and an
athlete of note. Lawton agreed to
talk at the pep-meeing at a late
hour last night after a previously
arranged speaker was forced to
cancel his arrangepaent. Ernest C.
Reif, '30, preident of the Student
council will be master of cere-
monies at the affair. Stan Cochran,
'30, senorcouncilman, arranged the
mass meeting.
Band to Lead Singing.
Michigan's "Fighting Band" will
call the students to the pep-meet-
ing this evening with a parade up
State street and North University
avenue. Its march will be to the
tune of the favorite Maize and Blue
football songs, "The Victors" and
"Varsity" and to "Hail! Hail! the
Gang's All Here."
Once in the auditorium the band
will accompany the assembled stu-
dents in the traditional songs, the
words of which will be shown on
Every member of the cheering
section -should report early for

come many of Michigan's famous
football yells. They will be lead by
Stanton Todd '30, 'varsity cheer-
leader and corps of assistants.
Former Ch leaders to Attend.
Besides the regular cheerleaders
two famous yellmasters of years
past will be on hand to bring forth
the cheers of the crowd. Lyman
Joyce "Red" Glasgow, '25, yellmas-
ter for two years when Michigan
was playing conference champion-
ship football, will be one of the
guest cheerleaders. He led several
yells at the Ohio State game this
season and is noted for his unique

antics while leading cheers. He is
now editor of the Detroit Motor
News. While a student he was a
varsity debater and a member of
several forensic societies and is
probable that he will make ahshort
speech of his version of the real,
Michigan spirit.
Carroll B. "Hap" Haff, '15 L., who
led the cheers at a gala send-off#
for the Wolverines when they in-
vaded Harvard in 1914, will be the
other guest yellmaster. Tomorrow's
game will be the Maize and Blue
gridder's first encounter with the
Crimson since the 1914 game and
Haff has come all the way from
New York to see the battle and to
lead cheers at the pep-meeting and
the game.
Haff was in his undergraduate
days one of Michigan's greatest
track stars. He captained the 1914
team and won the intercollegiate
440 yard championship.

Market Strikes New Bottom,
Leaders Recover to Wipe Out Losses

Forced Liquidation Is Blamed
for Pronounced Decline
in Market
By Stanley W. Prenosil, I
A.P. Financial Editor
NEW YORK, N. Y., Nov. 7-The
stock market struck a new bottom
today when a couple of million
shares of distressed stock was
thrown overboard at the opening,
and then staged one of the most
spectacular rallies in recent market
Early declines of $5 to $15 per
shaie in many of the leaders were
wiped out and converted into gains
which ran from $1 to nearly $18
per share. Recoveries in the gen-
eral list were not so pronounced as
nearly 500 stocks, or about half of
those traded in, closed with net de-
clines, the large majority of which1
ranged from a few cents to $2 a

Declares Present Standards Are
as Good as Can be Expected
Under Circumstances.
Declaring that the present mor-
al standards of the students of thel
University are as good as can bre
expected under the existing cir-
cumstances, Prof. Robert C. Angell

I were dumped on the market as
soon, as the opening gong had
sounded, with results that nearly
12,500,000 changed hands in the first
half hour. The ticker fell steadily
behind and was two hours late in
printing the final quotations.
Total sales for the abbreviated
three-hour session cn the New
York Stock Exchange was 7,234,060
shares, or at the rate of nearly 12,-
000,000 for a full five-hour day
which compares with 5,906,740 in
yesterday's short session.
Evidence of a tremendous liqui-
dation of speculative holdings that
has taken place during the past
week was furnished after the close
of the market in the weekly Federal
Reserve report of broker's loans
which showed a reduction of $656,-
000,000 following a decline of $1,-
960,000,000 the week before. This
brings the total down to $4,882,000,-
000, the lowest since Oct. 24, 1928.
Wall Street, which has been suf-
fering from a bad case of nerves as
a result of the violent decline that
has taken place since Monday and
forced many of the leaders to new
low levels on the current reaction
if not for the year, was in a much
more cheerful state of mind when
the market closed at 1 p. m.
Many brokers interpreted the op-
ening decline as the completion, at
least temporarily, of the forced li-
quidation which has been over-
hanging the market.

Attack Directed Against Briand
for Following a "Too
Liberal Policy."
(By Associated Press)
PARIS, France, Nov. 7.-The new
Tardieu government, headed by
one of the youngest Premiers
France has ever had, vigorously
launched the declaration of its'
policy in the Chamber of Deputies
today and prepared to withstand
the counter-attack that is expect-
ed from the opposition tomorrow.
Parliament was adjourned late
in the evening without voting on
ministerial declarations which M.
Tardieu read. The Deputies will
meet tomorrow and then the gov-
ernment will ask for a vote of con-
fidence. On the result of this, the
life of the government depends.
Large Majority Seen.
Its chances of success seemed
brighter tonight and if the Depu-
ties vote as they applauded, Pre-
mier Tardieu can count on a ma-
jority of from 50 to 100 votes.
Franklin-Bouillon directed his
attack at M. Briand for what he
called a "too .liberal policy," always
giving and never getting.
He opposed early evacuation of
the Rhineland, affirming that Ger-
man appropriations for military
purposes were enoag hto give the;
Reichs five times as strong an arm-
ament as the Treaty of Versailles
He declared that since the Treaty
was signed, the Germans have per-
fected roads facing the French
frontier, and motor transport sys-
tems that would enable them to
transport an entire army by auto
I mobile into French territory with
|great rapidity. He said that the
French had done nothing on their
side. M. Briand will-reply to Frank
I Olin-Bouillon's attack tomorrow
and the effectiveness of his speech
will have a great effect on the gov-
ernment's fate.
Reforms Introduced.
M. Tardieu departed from the
precedents of a score of years by
introducing an imposing list of
specific reforms the government in-
tended to carry out into the min-
isterial declaration, instead of gen-
eral promises. He even told what
the reforms would cost.
The opposition sat silent while'
he read his list to the applause of,
the right and the center. When he
had finished reading, the discus-
sion of the interpolation addressed
by individual deputies of the gov-
ernment began. Only five speakers;
out of a score scheduled had a
chance to attack the ministry, and
but one of these seemed danger-
M. Franklin-Bouillon, leader of
a s all group that seceded from
the Radical-Socialist party in 1929,
made a violent attack on former-
Premier Briand, who promises to bej
a general target for attack as Min-
ister of Foreign Affairs.
Ambassador Dawes
and Hoover Confer
on Naval Conference
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 7-
Ambassador Dawes concluded to-
night his conferences with Pres-
ident Hoover and officials of the
government regarding the forth -
coming naval conference in Lon
don, preparatory to sailing tomor-
row night on the White Star liner,
Homeric, for England.
The Ambassador and Mrs. Dawes,
and their daughter, Mrs. Melvin
Ericson, have been guests of the
President and Mrs. Hoover at the
White House for the three days
since they arrived from Chicago.
There Mr. Dawes had conferred

with officials regarding the planned
Chicago World Fair.
Accompanied by his brother, Ru-
fus C. Dawes, head of the commit-
tee working out plans for the Fair,
the Ambassador attended a brief
ceremony at the White House to-
day when the President issued his '

Sp'aks on America
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, Eng., Nov. 7--"My im-
pressions of America" were related
tonight by Ishbell MacDonald at a
Labor meeting which overflowed
the Hampstead town hall and
caused her to make an address in
the open air as well as to those
who packed the structure.
"I was struck very much withl
the sense that we Britishers have'
been wrong in going to the United
States and Canada imbued with a
superiority complex and trying to
push our ideas on to Americans,"
she said. "I am afraid we have not
had very good people to represent1
us there in the past."
The daughter of the Prime Min-I
ister suggested that more English I
