Seven miners were rescued alive to-

First news of the massacre was1
brought by Bishop Migniani, of the
Italian Lazarist mission at Kian,
who with a Chinese Lazarist priest
arrived at Kiukiang today. He had
been released by Reds to attempt to
raise $10,000,000 Mexican (about
$3,500,000 gold) as ransom for 14
missionaries held at Kian.
Bishop Migniani said he and the
Chinese priests, after being severely
beaten and p a r a d e d through
streets of Kan, had been left on
foot Oct.14 to obtain aid for theirx
fellow missionaries. These includ-

Arthur Woods to Direct
Unemployment Aid

(Y Associated Press )
WASHINGTON, Oct. 22.-The re-
newed efforts of the government
to aid the nation's unemployed
took more definite form tonight as
President Hoover and the man he
has named to direct the activities,
Col. Arthur Woods, of New York,
conferred at the White House.
Colonel Woods arrived late in
the day and went directly to the
executive mansion where the pres-
ident awaited him in his office'
Later he called upon Secretary La-
mont at the latter's home.
Describing the situation as a
"race against human misery," the
new administrator said the govern-
ment "must and will win."
He asserted that the problem
would be met with all the informa-
tion and vigor that can be sum-
moned and that he and the presi-
dent's cabinet committee of seven
would try to take immediately the
steps needed to meet the situation.
He had accepted the post, in
which he will serve without pay,
only yesterday and declined to dis-
cuss particulars of the organiza-
tion to be set up until he confers
with associations tomorrow.
An organization similar to that
which he directed in 1921 at the
instance of President Harding is to
be established, Colonel Woods indi-
cated, with changes to meet new
He said most of the work of the
government probably would lie in
the co-ordination of local activi-
ties, and that the plans would be
adapted to the varying needs of
different sections of the country.
The organizations already set up
throughout the country had made'
the task easier, he said.
Union Announces Pool
Tourney Registration
Registration for participation in
the annual all-campus billiard and
pool tournaments, sponsored by the
House committee of the Union, will
begin this afternoon in the billiard
room of the Union. Persons desir-
ing to enter may sign up any time
before noon, Saturday, Nov. 1.
Separate contests in straight rail,
and three-rail billiards and pool
I will be conducted. There is no limit
to the number of tournaments
which one person may enter. As in
I former years, the winner in each
division will be presented with a sil-
ver loving cup, while the runner-up
in each case will receive $5 in trade
'in the Union billiard room.
Pairing to determine opponents
will be made immediately upon the
closing registration on Nov. 1, there-
fore it is imperative that all pros-
pective entrants sign up by that
Rooms May be Listed

Three new formations, spelling
l"MICH," "ILLINI," and "U of M,"
will be attempted in the cheering
section at the Illinois game Satur-
day, according to an announcement,
made by Monty Shick, 31, Varsity
cheerleader. Although highly com-
mended in the Purdue game, the
new card system will not be a suc-
cess unless certain instructions are1
observed, stated Shick.
Students in the section are asked
to read the directions printed on
the back of their tickets before en-
tering the stadium. In order to in-
sure the success of the stunts it is
imperative that every one be in his
own seat. Upon the signal from the
cheerleader and his four assistants,
the cards should be raised to a level)
with the eyes, and NOT above the
head. This fault was apparent in
the Purdue game, spoiling, in part,
the effect of the stunt. The cheery
leaders. will hold up -I rg. cards1
with' tht differeit: stunt ritnlbergy;
the cards should be immediately1
lowered as soon as the large cards1
are put down.
All students are requested to hold
their cards even though a touch-
down is made. The great expense
entailed with supplying the cards
makes it impossible to provide new
ones for each game. The student-
body can co-operate in this matter
by leaving cards on the seats as
they leave the stadium.
As was the case at the Purdue
game, the cards will be tacked to
the seats in the cheering section.
The formations which will be given
during time out periods, will have
yellow letters on a blue background.
Tickets in the sections, 22, 23, and
24 between rows 28 to 43 inclusive
will be in the cheering section,
where both men and women stu-
dents will be seated.

(I13 ahPress
WASHINGTON, Oct. 22.-Acting
upon a plea of the Brazilian gov-
ernnlent, President Hoover today
imposed an embargo on shipments
of arms and munitions to Brazil,
the first time in American diplo-
matic history such a limitation has
been placed on . exportations of
arms to a South American repub-
The embargo was contained in a
proclamation signed by President
Hoover and countersigned and
sealed by Secretary Stimson.
It carried the proviso that ship-
ments could be made to Brazil un-
der licenses granted by the secre-
tary of state, which, in effect,
would prevent shipments to any,
Brazilians other than those repre-
senting the administration of Pres-
!dent Washington Luis, the only
government in Brazil recognized by
the United States.
Brazil's request for inposition of
the embargo was contained in a
note dated today and delivered by
Ambassador Amaral, of Brazil,
to Secretary Stimson.

the embargo proclamation at the

ment announced that it had again
