Total of $55,000 Lent to Date
Exceeds Last Year's Figure
by Twelve Thousand.







Leaders of Many Sects
Deliver Lectures
During Year.



During the Past Two Weeks the
University Loan Committee
Received Over $16,000.
Loans issued to men and women
students at the University since
Sept. 1 total $55,000, according to
figures compiled in the office of
Dean J. A. Bursley and issued yes-
terday afternoon. This total is an
increase of 40 per cent over the
1929 figures of $42,000 between Sept.
1 and Oct. 15.
Average Loan Less.
Although the total number of
loans this year has been 338 as com-
pared with 241'in 1929, the amount
of each loan has averaged less than
last year and the number of loans'
increased but 30 per cent over the
last figure. Up to July 1 of this year
1,370 loans had been made by the
University which were outstanding
comprising a total of $180,000 of
available funds. Although totals are
not complete to date, the September
to October loans swell the July
figure to $235,000 divided among
1,708 students. Few loans in com-
parison to this fall's issue were
made during the summer session.
The addition of $16,500 to the
Unversity loan fund totals during
the last two weeks has slightly re-
lieved the situation, Dean Bursley
stated, and has made possible a
slight reserve which was more than
ever necessary this year with the
demand twice as large as any pre-
vious semester. More than twice as
many applicants for loans present-
ed their petitions before the com-
mittee this year than in normal sea-
sons, while the available fund was
smaller than usual.
Unsolicited Funds Received.
One of the features of the recent
additions was the fact that all the
money given for use in loan funds
since the opening of the present
school term was for either men or
women students, to be decided by
the University committee on loans.
Practically no funds previously re-
mained for women students, except
such as provided rooms at a speci-
fied residences for a certain length
of time, or loans otherwise restrict-
ed. The new loans available for
University use came unsolicited into
the office of the loan committee fol-
lowing news stories in local and
foreign papers of the problems
which students faced during the
current year and the heavy demand
for financial aid.
Cabinet Committee Appointed
to Act During Winter.
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 17. - Ap-
pointment of a cabinet committee
to cope with unemployment during
the winter was announced today
by President Hoover.
The group, composed of Secre-
taries Lamont, Davis, Wilbur, Hur-
ley, Hyde and Mellon,'and Gover-
nor Meyer, of the federal reserve
board, is to formulate and submit
to Mr. Hoover plans for continuing
and strengthening organization of
federal activities for increased em-
The decision to name the com--
mittee came after a series of busi-
ness conferences between the chief
executive and financiers at which
short selling on the stock market
was one of the subjects discussed.

Professor Curtis Says Research
Facilities Will be Among
World's Finest.
Michigan will have the third
largest reflecting telescope and one
of the finest plants for research
and instruction in the world, Prof.
Herber D. Curtis, new director of
the University observatory, an-
nounced yesterday.
It will take at least three and a
half years and possibly five years
to bring these plans to fulfillment,
Professor Curtis said. "It is plan-
ned to construct an 80-inch reflec-
ting telescope but to cast the re-
flector of a telescope of this size
takes a long time. The reflector
must be cooled down very gradu-
ally to make it perfectly homogen-
ous and flawless. An electrical
process is used which cools down
the glass from its original temper-
ature of about 1500 degrees, three
degrees a day. Naturally, such a
process takes a long time. When
completed the reflector will be 80-
inch in diameter, from 10 to 12
inches thick and weigh about five
At present Professor Curtis is
concentrating his efforts on the
mounting and building for the 80-
inch telescope, later other units will
be planned. Besides a building for
the large reflector there will also
be a building for the 37 1-2-inch
reflecting telescope which is in use
now, a residence for the director,
and another building for the men
in the department to stay in when
they come out to the observatory
for the week-end or overnight. The
entire project is estimated to cost
between a half million and a mil-
lion dollars.
The new observatory will be built
about 18 miles northwest of town,
near Base lake.
Curtis feels that the University
has purchased an ideal spot. The
ground on which the new observa-
tory will be built is thickly wooded
and isolated from any town or ob-
jects which might prove to be dis-
turbing factors.

Wright, President of Federated
Churches of Cleveland,
to Open Series.
A series of nationally recognized
leaders in religious and intellectu-
al fields will be scheduled to ad-
dress the university convocations
which are to take place on the last
Sunday of each month during the
current school year, it was an-
nounced yesterday by John Lederle
'33, chairman for the newly organ-
ized university convocation com-
Held Sunday Nights.
These Sunday evening student
convocations, which are held in
Hill auditorium, are being sponsor-
ed by the churches of Ann Arbor
and the Student Christian associa-
tion. There will also be represent-
ed on the committee that has
charge of the convocations a rep-
resentative of the Michigan league,
the Union, and the Student Coun-
According to Lederle the com-
mittee intends to make a vigorous
effort to obtain men who will at-
tract and interest a large number
of students. Men outside of relig-
ious work who are leaders in their
field of endeavor and have an in-
spiring message to give will be ob-
tained, besides well known minis-
ters of various denominations.
On October 26 the first evening
service will be held at which Louis
C. Wright, president of the feder-
atchurches of Cleveland and
pastor of the Epsworth-Euclid
Methodist church, will be the
speaker. On January 25 Sailor
Mathews of the Chicago Divinity
school will speak before the con-

sidered by the committee are

Ibfre an enthusiastic audience,
Timothy Stone of the Chicago DI-
vinity school who also was given a
warm reception in Ann Arbor last
year, and Dr. M. S. Rice, Methodist
pastor in Detroit.
Churches Give Money
Both the Student Christian as-
sociation and the various churches
of Ann Arbor are making it pos-
sible financially to bring this
group of speakers here. Each de-
nomination represented by a
church in Ann Arbor will give to
the convocation fund an amount
proportional to the number of stu-
dents enrolled in the university
who belong to that denomination.
This proportion will be computed
by consulting the files of the Stu-
Sdent Christian association where
there is a card filled out by each
student giving his church member-
ship or church preference. The
method will be for each church to
pay a certain small sum to the
fund for each of the university
students who have signified their
preference for membership in that
particular denomination. The Stu-
dent Christian association will
probably give 200 dollars to the
fund outright.

here today as game time approaches to bring together Ohio State and

the gridiron background.
Coach Willaman, realizing this,
will present the full force of his
ricky offensive which he has been
working on all week, and indications
are that much of his game will be
played via the overhead method
with the great Fesler on the receiv-
ng end of the tosses. Michigan will
also probably resort to an aerial at-
tack since Newman seems a cer-
tainty to start at quarterback.
The injury to Norm Daniels,
which may keep him out of the
game today, will hurt the Wolverine
passing attack since he is one of
the best receivers on the squad. It
was Daniels who caught Newman's
long pass for the first Maize and
Blue score in the Purdue game and
started the Wolves on the way to
their 14-13 victory.
Michigan Conceded Edge.
This win over Purdue gives Mich-
igan an edge in the predictions to-
day since the Boilermakers were
considered one of the best teams in
the Conference prior to last Satur-
day. Past figures stretching over a
period of time since 1897 also give
the Wolverines an edge with Michi-
gan having won nineteen and tied
two of the 26 times the two schools
have met on the gridiron. In these
games the Maize and Blue has roll-
ed up a total of 492 points against
110 for the Buckeyes. However, the
last two games have both resulted
in Ohio State wins by a 19-7 in 1928
and a 7-0 count last season.
