CAMBRIDGE, Nov. 1-The gal-
lant little football band from an-
cient William and Mary out-
fought and outsmarted all of
Harvard's milghty army here to-
day, but superior man power en-
abled the Crimson to push over
a fourth period touchdown and
tie the score at 13 all.
Outweighed from five to 35
pounds in every position, the
fighting lightweights from the
small Williamsburg, Va., college
overwhelmed the starting Crim-
son substitutes with their amaz-
ing speed and then outplayed the
regulars who were rushed in ear-
ly in the second period.

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 1.-Minne-
sota's fighting Gophers caged the
giant offense paw of Northwestern's
Wildcats today, but while Captain
Hank Bruder was stopped, his team
mates clawed and passed their way
to a 27-to-6 victory over Minnesota
to keep Northwestern squarely in
the sun of the Western Conference
Bruder's brethren from Dick Han-
ley's smallpox club made up for his
ineffectiveness by thundering across
the Gopher goal line four times,
twice on brilliant passes thrown by
Ernie Rentner, Wildcat fullback,
and twice after Reb Russell had
battered his way through the tout-
ed Gopher stone wall line defense.
Besides seeing Bruder, out of a
hospital less than a week after a
liight attack of smallpox, held to
15 yards gains in 10 plays, Minne-
sota homecomers, thickly packed in
the crowd of 54,000 were given one
big scoring thrill. This was aweav-
ing 50-yard spurt for a touchdown
by the smallest Gopher of them all,
140-pound Ken McDougal, in the
Frank Baker, the big Northwest-
ern wing, started things for the
Wildcats in the second quarter aftera
the Gophers had met their thrust
through the first period. Baker
pulled a 27-yard Rentner pass out of
the chill air, and scrambled three
yards over the goal line for the
first Northwestern score. Bruder's
low kick on the try for point was
ruled good because of a Minnesota

Whatever expectation there might
have been that President Hoover,
would make a last minute statement
was squashed at the White House.
He left his desk at twilight yester-
day, determined to hold no more
conferences until mid-week. The
word was passed that he'd have
nothing more to say.
Hoover Votes by Mail.
With Mrs. Hoover, he marked his
ballots and sent them to Palo Alto,
Cal., by air mail.
The party chieftan, at headquar-
ters, a block or so away from the
White House, expressed confidence
anew last night. The way Robert
H. Lucas put it as executive direc-
tor for the Republicans was that a
"normal majority" would be re-
turned. What he meant by "nor-
mal" not defined; but the Republi-
cans now have a margin of 103 in
the House and 17 Senate seats mqre
than the Democrats, the large mar-
gin having been gained in the 1928
avalanche for Hoover.
Predict Democratic Gain.
Jouett Shouse, executive chair-
man for the Democrats, stood by
his recent prediction that nearly
seven Republican House s e a t s
would be overturned. His party
needs to increase its representa-
Lion by. 53 to. get a majority there,
and by 10 in the Senate. He said
an estimate of a gain of six sena-
tors was conservative.

place among the nation's unde-

John Warrington, the star of the

Life Exists on Stars
"Our earth is a second rate plan-
et, revolving around a second rate
star, in a second rate system, which
is only a minor part of a fairly
large nebular in space," said Prof.
D. B. McLaughlin, of the astronomy
department, in his illustrated lec-
ture, "The Dawning Era's Back-
ground," the first of the Tolstoy
league's series, presented last night
in Angell hall.
"Because of the insignificance of
the earth," he added, "we cannot
think that we are the only star on
which. there is life." To illustrate
that there is vegetation and proba-
bly animnal life on other planets,
Professor McLaughlin referred to

ods takes on a distinctly greenish
tinge which astronomers believe can
be caused only by vegetable growth.
At the close of his lecture, Profes-
sor McLaughlin took the audience

The Board also voted to donate,
free of charge, the use of the
Michigan staium for any other
games between teams, the aim of
which games might be to raise
further funds for charity.
It also expressed its willingness
and desire to hold, as a separate
fund for the same purpose, any'ex-
cess over the regular scheduled
prices any, purchasers might be dis-
posed to pay for tickets.
These decisions were reached aft-
er an investigation of the proposed
plan for a charity game between
the University of Detroit and Mih-
igan. The Board was in receipt of
numerous communications in favor
of and in opposition to such a game.
Governor Green attended the meet-
ing in person and presented his
point of view on the subject.
Board Issues Statement.
The statement :ssued by the
Board is as follows:
"Under the rules of the Confer-
ence, of which the University of
Michigan is a member, the football
playing season must end not later
than, the Saturday before Thanks-
giving. It is also provided that "No
Conference institution shall play
intercollegiate football on m o r e
than eight days in any year." Re-
cently the Conference denied a re-
quest for permission to ignore an-
other one of the Conference rules
in order that a regularly scheduled
game between Northwestern Uni-
versity and the University of Notre
Dame might be played in the Grant
Park Stadium at Chicago, a move
vigorously urged by at least one
Chicago newspaper and opposed by
others and also by the Chamber of
Commerce of Evanston, Illinois. The
proposal there was that the extra
proceeds over and beyond those
that would be derived from a capa-
city crowd' at the Northwestern
field should be devoted to charita-
ble purposes. The 'published state-
ment of the Chairman of the Con-
ference indicates very clearly the
attitude of that body with reference
to requests for permission for re-
lease from such Conference regula-
"The rules of the Conference, in
the formulation of which this Uni-
versity has taken .a part, are funda-
mentally designed to keep intercol-
legiate athletics in its proper rela-
tion to what are, after all, the real
purposes of a university. The mem-
bers of this Board are of the opin-
ion that these rules are proper in
content and were wisely adopted
and that the University of Michigan
should abide by them and decline
the invitation of the University of
Acceptance Would Be Fatal.
"It has been suggested that Mich-
igan should take part in this con-
test even though it meant with-
drawal or expulsion from the Con-
fer.ence. It will suffice to say in this
connection that aside from the con-
siderations of loyalty and decency
that dictate living up to the rules
of a group of which one is a mem-
ber it is the judgment of this Board
that such step would be absolutely
fatal to the continuance of the
University's entire athletic program.
With whom would Michigan's elev-
en intercollegiate athletic teams
compete? Eliminate all the Confer-
ence competition and where would
Michigan secure a football schedule
that would be attractive or inter-
esting or would furnish the fundsto
pay for and maintain the present
athletic plant and program? c

ever, are not unmindful of the prev-
