Totally Different
Wastes,' Noted

Than Arctic


Monotony of Long Nights Was
Broken by Interesting
Phases of Work.
Antarctica, with its great unex-
plored expanse of almost unknown
territory, is still one of the great
mysteries of the world, said Rear
Admiral Richard E. Byrd last night
in his address in Hill auditorium
under the auspices of the Oratorical
IHe told at length of the hard-
ships encountered by the expedi-
tion which he led to the great ice
barrier and which culminated in
his epochal flight over the South
pole. Throughout his lecture he paid
special tribute to his second in com-
mand, Prof. Laurence M. Gould, of
the geology department of the Uni-
"The Antarctic," Byrd said, "is a
cold, lifeless silent land. It is total-
ly different from the Arctic. There
are notanimals and there is no life
at all with the exception of a few
primitive plants.
Cites Extreme Cold.
"Extreme cold," he stated, "often
reaching 70 degrees below zero, was
common. At 55 below, our kerosene
lamps went out. At 60 degrees be-
low our anti-freeze soluti'on froze
solid and at 65 degrees below we
could hear our breath crack as it
"The monotony of the long Ant-.
arctic night," he continued, "was
broken by routine, by testing vari-
ous tents, making sleds and cookers,
and getting used to dog sledge trips.
"The danger of the polar flight
itself was the extraordinary visibil-
ity at some times. Mountain peaks
30 miles away seemed low and in
the foreground. In addition, there
was the danger of not having
enough gasoline to return to Little
America, the town which we built
on the ice cap."
Tells of Rescue Trip.
Byrd told of the rescue of the
geological trip led by Professor
Gould which was lost in the foot-
hills of the newly discovered moun-
tain range. The eairplane that they
used, he said, was wrecked in a
wind that reached the velocity ofe
150 miles per hour and it was only
after the storm abated that Profes-
sor~ Gould and his party could be
The explorer paid special tribute
to the dogs that he took on the
expedition and said that "when it1
was a question of leaving the air-
planes or the dogs behind, of course
we left the airplanes," The two
planes which Byrd took with him"
were left on a wind-swept slope on,
the edge of the Bay of Wales.
His lecture was supplemented by
more than 9,000 feet of motion pic-
ture film, most of which has never
been shown outside of his lecture'

WASHINGTON, Nov. 10.-Presi-

the good will of the public toward
them is to be maintained the desire

satisfied by the articles sold.
"The good will of the public to-

upon the sale of an article once,"
he said in a speech before the.

-The "flying hotel DO-X"
hoisted itself by its own boot

Canary on Trip.
Fifteen men and her crew,
21 passengers, a black cat and
Hans, the canary, shared the
first sea-going trip this 50-ton
giant has made since she flew
to Amsterdam from Altenr-
hein, Switzerland, where she
was hatched.
It was an epochal trip, from
the time when the big ship
flirted the last of Hollond's sea
from its tail only to drop back
on the water for a minute,
while some minor engine re-
pairs were made. Repairs
made, the ship took off again
for Calshot.
Scenery Inspiring.
Flying across the open water,
the scenery at first inspiring,
quickly got monotonous. There
were miles of English channel
to starboard, and onlyahazy
outline of continental coast to
port. The passengers took to

Man Says He Killed
Buckley; Dies Later
(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, Nov. 10.-William
Jones, 49, a millwright, died of
injuries in a police cell tonight
two hours after he had appeared
at police headquarters and an-
nounced he was the man who
killed Gerland E. (Jerry) Buck-
ley, radio political commentator.
Police said he had received his
fatal injuries when he fell off
a bench in his cell. They said
he could have had no connection
with the Buckley slaying.
According to police, Jones was
intoxicated when he arrived.
at headquarters, unaccompanied,
and said he was Buckley's
slayer. They said they saw no
trace then of the injuries which
caused his death two hours later.
When he was taken to Re-
ceiving hospital, where a futile1
attempt was made to revive him,
Jones had a fractured skull, a
broken jaw, and a badly lacer-
ated eye.
Patrolman John Norris, who
was in charge of the informa-
tion desk, quoted Jones as say-
ing, "I killed Jerry Buckley; you
better lock me up," when he
walked up to the desk.

Winter Will Discuss
Life in Papyri Today
The second in the series of Thom-
as Spencer Jerome lectures on the
general subject, "Life and Letters
in the Papri," will be delivered by
Prof. John G. Winter, of the Latin
department, at 4:15 o'clock this
afternoon in room D, Alumni Mem-
orial hall. The specific subject of
this afternoon's lecture will be,
"The Life of the People in Town
and Country, Part 1." Professor
Winter will conclude the discus-
sion of town and country life in
the third lecture, Tuesday, Nov.

"Our world has many years to,
mature past the present childish.
and wicked age of war and the
battleship," said Dr. Francis S. On-
derdonk, of the College of Architec-
ture, in his illustrated lecture, "The
Dawning Era's Prophets, H. G. Wells
and L. N. Tolstoy," the third of the
Tolstoy league's series, given yester-
day afternoon in Angell hall.
Dr. Onderdonk said that Tolstoy1
became the prophet of the new era
because he looked ahead and pre-
dicted events that were sure to hap-
pen unless our social order was
changed. He saw that the World
war was imminent because of lack
of understanding among the na-
tions of the world.Therefore he
advocated international brother-
hood and urged that a universal
language be adopted to further this.
Tolstoy divided all people into
four groups, he said. These were
those who did not seem to think
about life or the reason why they
were living, those who attempted
to forget about death by having all
the enjoyment possible, those who
became disgusted with life and
committed suicide, and those who
could not ignore death but who did
not have the courage to commit
Tolstoy himself, Dr. Onderdonk
stated, attempted several times to
commit suicide but was not success-
ful. As he grew older, however, he
grasped his now famous philosophy
of life, and became engrossed in
bettering his fellow man.

State $120,000
for Charity.
State Expects to Sell
40,000 Tickets
for Game.
(By Associated Press)
LANSING, Nov. 10. - A football
game for the benefit of unemploy-
ment and charity, finally was offi-
cially arranged today when Gover-
nor Green accepted the offer of the
University of Michigan to turn over
its share of the receipts of its match
with the University of Chicago. The
game will be played in Ann Arbor
Nov. 22. The governor estimated it
will net the state around $120.000.
The money will be distributed to
counties throughout the s t a t e,
wherever tickets are sold and ian
direct proportion to the receipts
from each county.
Talks With Yost.
The governor announced his de-
cision after a telephone conversa-
tion with Fielding H. Yost, director
of athletics of the University. He
plainly was 'disappointed that a
post-season game between Mvichi-
gan and the University of Detroit
could not be arranged. However, he
stated, the Chicago game will be
better than nothing and he would
be displaying a lack of sportsman-
ship should he reject the offer.
The governor said if he refused
the charity match offered by the
University there might be a disposi-
tion to think he was piqued because
he could not arrange the game he

Yost estimated the game normal-
ly would attract only about this
number of spectators, so the Uni-
versity will sell that many tickets.
The governor hopes to duplicate the
number, bringing the total sale to
80,000 by distributing t i c k e t s
throughout the state and pushing
their sale. He will distribute them
through state channels in each
community or through friends. If
80,000 tickets are sold at $3 each
the total yield would be $240,000 of
which Chicago will receive one-

Described .as a move to inspire the
sale of new cars and contribute
toward the return of prosperity,
through increase of factory produc-
tion schedules, the order to sell 1931
plates to new car buyers was issued
today by John S. Haggerty, secre-
tary of state. It followed a confer-
ence with Governor Green.
The Governor expressed belief
that prospective purchasers would
buy cars now, if saved the expense
of buying 1930 plates with which to
operate them until January. He
expects the move to improve the
unemployment situation in the au-
tomotive industry.
The plates-black, with dark red
numerals-will not go on sale to
present car owners until Dec. 1.
