New Government to Establish
Constitutional Rule
After Election.
Insurgent General. Guarantees
Payment of All Old 1
Foreign Debts.
Copyright, 1930, by the
Associated Press c
Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, Oct. 29.-
General Francisco Flores da Cunha,1
of the insurgents, general staff,1
made clear today that the new Bra-1
zilian government will take severe;
measures to punish those guilty ofi
wrongful acts under the deposed
Washington Luis regime.
In a statement issued at his head-
quarters here, the leader of some of
the first revolting troops in the
state of Rio Grande do Sul, out-
lined the hopes of the victorious in-
surgents and said the new govern-
ment would oust all the old author-
ities and hold new elections to re-
establish constitutional government.
Guarantees Debt Payments.
He also said the new regime un-
der Getulio Vargas, would guaran-
tee payment of all agreements made
with foreign houses upuntil Oct. 3,f
the day the revolt began.
"It is my privilege to let the
world know through the Associated
Press that the revolution headed by
Dr. Getulio Vargas and directed
against the government of Wash-
ington Luis Pereitra de Souza, for-
mer president of Brazil, has been
victorious throughout our country
and that the 24th of October of 1930
will be one of our glorious mem-
ories," his statement said.
"The army and the navy cast i
their lot with the people of Brazil
in a supreme effort to attain a1
suddenand peaceful end to the
slaughter. And those forces sta-
tioned at the capital embraced our
c a u s e and deposed Washington
Luis, thus ending the civil war that
for nearly a month threatened the,
fate of the , largest republic in
South America."
Names Objective of War.
"The objective of the revolution
was to bring about the resignation
of Washington Luis, to establish
administrative morality, and to
fulfill the constitutional principles
of independence of the legislative
and judicial powers from -the fed-
eral executive," he said.
'Under Washington Luis' regime
there was no other power in the
nation but his. The people in
Brazil have been for many years
anxious to see a return to constitu-
tional government, and under the
new government measures will be
-taken to severely punish those re-
sponsible for the violation of our
inalienable constitutional rights."
"Those people will be called to
account. And we hold that those
members of the legislative body
that passively submitted to the will
of one man, are equally respon-
sible with him for this travesty
of justice and this violation of their
constitutional oath."

FOND DU LAC, Wis., Oct. 29.-
The Wisconsin D. A. R. was told at
its convention today that President
Glenn Frank of the University ofj
Wisccnsin is indifferent to the pres-
ence of communism at the univer-
Before the session was over, Pres-
ident Frank replied, in a formalj
statement, expressing himself as

Mrs. James F. Trottman, Milwau-

versity as a place where "un-Amer-
ican ideas were fostered."
She called "enlightening" a quo-
tation attributed to Frank w h e n
asked whether there were commun-
ists at the University.
"Well, what of it? We are rapt to I
have both communists and Presby-
terilans here. I have said, and still
say, a student has as much right
to be a communist as he has to be
a Presbyterian or a Baptist. It is
not the business of the university
to dictate the political and religious
beiefs of its students."

Trout stressed the importance of

stated, "does not lie in the lack of

of means to execute his designs, but
in the ability to make the public
understand the appropriateness of
his project."

Identification cards which have
been prepared for students in all
colleges and schools of the Univer-
sity by members of the office staff
of the dean of students will be is-
sued beginning this morning, Dean
Joseph A. Bursley stated yesterday
afternoon. In order to avoid con-
gestion, a series of specified times
has been arranged during which
students may call for their cards in
the registrar's office, Room 4, Uni-
versity hall.
Students whose last names begin
with letters A-E inclusivebare asked
to apply today. Those between F
and K inclusive will be able to get
their cards Friday, and L-R in-
clusive on Saturday. Final distri-
bution will take place Monday
when students between S-Z inclu-
sive may apply for the cards; Stu-
dents are urged to enter the west
door of. Room 4 when coming for
their cards.
Use of Cards is Optional.
Use of the cards, as explained by
Dean Bursley, is optional with stu-
dents at the University and the
identifications are merely for the
convenience of the individual in
such cases when identification is
needed. Aid in cashing checks at
foreign stores, security of with-
drawing library books, and identi-
ty in case of necessity are the ma-
jor uses for which the cards have
been assembled. No card will be
issued to other than the person
for which it has been made out.
Includes Picture.
The identifications include a
picture of the student along with
his name, address 'phone number,
and the signature of Dean Bursley.
Each card bears the color of the
college or school in which the stu-
dent has enrolled, the colors fol-
lowing as closely as possible those
worn at graduation. The home
city and state of residence of each
student is also written on the card.
Whenever a student withdraws
from the University and desires to
obtain a refund of tuition, the
identification card must be pre-
sented at the office of the secre-
tary of the University before re-
fund can be obtained. Carrying
the card is optional with the stu-
dent himself.
