RIO DE JANEIRO, Oct. 27.-Forj
two hours today forces of the pro-
visional government battled against
a regiment of revolting military
police and communists who sought
to fan dissatisfaction in the result-
When it was over, with the gov-
ernment in control, more casual-
ties had been tallied.
For a time the outbreak threat-
ened to become a menace to the
military junta which on Friday
ousted President Washington Luis
and set up a provisional govern-
ment, in the meantime awaiting
the arrival of Jetulio Vargas, rebel
generalissimo, to take control.
Police Start Conflict.
The military police regiment
started the conflict and took over
the central police station, firing
indiscriminately. Firemen and city
police at first were called to combat
the revolters, their ranks quickly
augmented by armed citizens.
Soon forces of the regular army
double-timed through the streets
or rushed up in motor trucks. They
threw up barricades of sacked flour,
beans and sugar, around the min-
istry of war, the central police
station, and in the foreign office,
and also in the gardens along the
bay near the Gloria hotel.
Communists Join Melee.
Soldiers, sailors, and marines
manned the defensive, while mili-
tary airplanes flew overhead, some
of them acting as observers and
others bombing the barracks of the
revolting military police.3
In the meantime the commun-
ists, who attempted to lead riots
protesting the city's food supply,
obtained firearms and joined in the
general melee, firing indiscrimin-
A number of the casualties were
plain clothes policemen who at-.
tempted to leave headquarters to
combat the trouble.
The revolt was over in two hours,
as the rioters had no chance after
the strong government forces were
unlimbered against them.
POLLOCK TO HELP -
Arrangements Can Still be Made
to Cast Ballots by Mail.
Prof. James K. Pollock, of the
political science department, last
night offered to interview any stu-
dents in regard to absentee voting
in the election on Nov. 4.
It is still possible for Michigan
students and students from nearby
states to register and arrange to
cast their ballots by mail, Professor
Pollock said. In former years such
arrangements have been made at
the offices of political parties in
Ann Arbor. Professor Pollock may
be reached in the political science
office, 2031 Angell hall.
"I will be glad to interview any
students regarding the use of their
vote," Professor Pollock declared.
"However, the time is getting short
for students whose residences are
very far away."
Time will be saved in arranging
the absentee voting by getting the
facts first. Professor Pollock will be
able to tell what information will bel

SEES BRIGHTER FUTURE
Bv Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Oct. 27. -Programs
to combat unemployment already
undertaken by 15 large cities were
held up today as models for the
rest of the country by Col. Arthur
Woods, chairnian of the President's
He urged other cities to study the
programs already worked out by
New York, Detroit, Boston, Phila-
delphia, Flint, Chicago, Cleveland,
Toledo,'St. Paul, and Milwaukee, in
the belief that they might find in
one of them the plan that would!
best meet local conditions.
The outstanding feature on the
programs he outlined was the prin-
ciple that the unemployed man
should be given a job instead of
merely a loaf of bread.
Until the time that every man
competent to work has a job there
must be relief, he said, but the real
problem is to find the job. He sug-
gested that it ought to be a job that
really needs to be done, not one
that is artificially created.
Colonel Woods is not pessimistic
about the outlook. He believes con-
ditions are better now, taking the
country as a whole, than they were
in 1921 when he headed President
Harding's employment commission.
But in spots, conditions are worse,
Rockne Says Notre Dame Style

NEW YORK, Oct. 27. - Knute
Rockne can win ball games with-
out his famous shift just as he has
done so often in the past, but if
the rule-makers ever should outlaw
this movement entirely he will quit
guaranteeing to fill stadiums from
one end of the country to the other..
Riding the high tide with an-
other superlative Notre Dame team,
perhaps the greatest he has , ever,
ieveloped, the Norwegian master of
the ready wit is in a happy mood
these days. He feels rather deeply
about the regulations that have
brought the shift to a full stop with
at least a second's halt but the last
laugh is not on him.
"Notre Dame can get along with-
out the shift," he declared in a
round table discussion before the
game at Pittsburgh. "We can stop
10 minutes on every play if neces-
sary, as the referee warned us we'd
have to do once, but there won't
be much color in that kind of a
game. We can win without the
shift but we won't draw the crowds.
The color will be gone."

DETROIT, Oct. 27. - Governor
Fred W. Green, James O. Murfin, a
Regent of the University of Michi-
gan, and the athletic board of the
University of Detroit, were co-oper-
ating today in an effort to bring
about a football game between Uni-
versity of Michigan and University
of Detroit in Ann Arbor on Thanks-
Proceeds, estimated v a r i o u s 1 y
from $100,000 to $250,000, would be
devoted to relief of the unemployed
But just as it seemed definite
progress-was being made toward ar-
ranging a game, there came an an-
nouncement tonight that the facul-
ty committee of the Western Con-
ference had refused to authorize
transfer of the Notre Dame-North-
western game from Dyche stadium
in Evanston to Soldier's field in
Chicago. That, in effect, checks
plans for making that game a spec-
tacle for unemployment relief, for
the proposal, accepted by both
schools, had been for receipts for
sale of all tickets over $50,000, the
capacity of Dyche stadium should
go to charity.
Governor Fred W. Green yester-
day presented a formal request to
the University Board in Control ofE
Athletics for permission to schedule
a University of Detroit-Michigan
football game on some date in the
middle of December. Governor
Green telephoned to the office of
the President yesterday afternoon
and immediately made a formal re-
quest to the board for the post-
season game, the returns from
which are to be used for charity
work among the unemployed.
Board to Act.
Action by the board will take place
within a few days, it was announc-
ed last night, although several ob-
stacles of technicality wi'll remain
should the game be approved. The
major objection to the Detroit-
Michigan contest lies in the Big Ten
ruling that no post-season games
shall be played by members of the
Western Conference unless by con-
sent of the other members. In case
of assent to the proposed game, the
Board will petition the Big Ten
official body and ask for a vote
throughout the member schools.
Other major objections f r o m
Michigan's standpoint center about
the necessity of conditioning of the
Varsity team for another month
after the close of the regular sched-
ule. Detroit plays a game Nov. 29
and a post-season tilt on Dec. 7 is
According to present plans, the
money received from the contest
would be used entirely for relief of
unemployment during the winter
months. More than $300,000 is hoped
to be raised by this means in case
the game is approved.
