Michigan Captures Every Event
in Vanquishing Visiting
Y. M. C. A. Team.
GOLDSMITH IS DEFEATED
Schmeiler Lowers Big Ten Mark
in 200-Yard Breaststroke;
Wins Two Races.
By Sheldon C. Fullerton,
Michigan's Varsity - tank team,
flashing a form that far outclassed
anything that their opponents had
to offer, swam to a 62-13 victory
over Grand Rapids Y. M. C. A. last
night in a dual meet at the In-
tramural building pool.
Capturing both relay events and
first and second places in everyI
race and the diving, the Wolverines
were never in danger from the first
of the meet to the end. Only one
record was broken, that coming in
t h e 200-yard breaststroke when
Schmeiler completed the extra 100
yards after swimming the required
distance for the meet, in time low-
ering the Big Ten record by :01.6
Goldsmith Left Behind.
The anticipatcd feature race of
the evening b e t w ; e n Schneiler
andMiller of Michigan, and Bob
Goldsmith, a former Wolverine star
who swam last night for the Grand
Rapids team, failed to materialize
when both of the Varsity men fin-
ished far ahead of Goldsmith, who
came in a poor fourth.
Schmeiler was also victorious in
the 100 yard freestyle event, when
he nosed out Smith by inches to
take the closest race of the evening.
Another close event saw Marcus
cop the 50 yard freestyle by a
hand's length f r o in Klintworth.
None of the other races were close,
Michigan taking both relays by a
complete length of the pool..
Degener Gives Exhibition.
A water polo game between the
Varsity and a team of former Mich-
igan swimmers followed the meet,
with the present team winning by
a 2-1 score. Dick Degener, fresh-
man diver, and former national
mterschola'tic diving champ, gave
a sensational exhibition of high
board diving during an intermis-
sion in the meet.

FOR MISSING MAN
Rea Attempts to Locate Student
Gone Since Saturday.
Investigation launched by Walter
B. Rea, assistant to the dean of
students, in an effort to locate Ger-
ald H. Carlton, '34, who disappeared
from his rooming house at 911 For-
est avenue Saturday night, has
failed to disclose the whereabouts
of the missing student.
Station WJR in Detroit broadcast
a description of Canlton today. This
information has also been furnish-
ed to police departments through-
out the state. Carlton is 20 years
old, rather slim of build, is about
five feet, eight inches in height;
has very blond hair, wears glasses,
and has had his left index finger
amputated at the first joint. In
spite of the cold weather, he was
wearing no hat and only a light
topcoat when last seen Saturday.

Prosecutor to Ask for Extreme
Penalty for Eight Guilty
(By Associated Press)
MOSCOW, Dec. 3.-Eight Russian
engineers accused of plotting the
overthrow of the Soviet government
may know before the end of the
week whether they must pay with
their lives for their acts of treason.
It was generally admitted that
Prosecutor N. B. Krilenko will de-
mand the death penalty in his
summation tomorrow night, but
some doubt existed whether the ex-
treme penalty would be exacted
from all the defendants.
' There was strong belief the death
sentence would be imposed on all
eight, but later would be commut-
ted in the cases of some of the de-
fendants to 10 years imprisonment.
This is considered a long prison'
term in Soviet Russia.
Workers and peasants throughout
the nation have almost unanimous-
ly demanded death, but in view of
the fact that most of the defend-
ants have bared complete details
of the plot for foreign intervention
and have aided the government in
rounding up hundreds of others as
conspirators, it is thought probable
that some degree of leniency may

apprehensive over his fate today.

SEES INCOME DECREASE
Congress Warned Against Large
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 3.-A deficit
lies ahead and tax rates must be
increased, but still, President Hoov-
er today told Congress, the govern-
ment's finances are in a thorough-
ly sound condition.
The deficit he estimated at $180,-
000,000, and he said, in his annual
message transmitting the budget,
that the one percent income tax
reduction granted a year ago could
not be continued.
But he submitted a balanced
budget for the fiscal year 1932 and
a statement that rigid economy in
legislation would give the nation
a surplus of $30,600,000 for that
Income Decrease Probable.
"A heavy decrease in probable in-
come and the necessity to increase
public works," and aid employment,
he said, do "not warrant continua-
tion" of the tax reduction.
The chief executive found no
cause for concern in the impending
I deficit. It amounts to less than
five percent of the total govern-
"When we stop to consider that
we are progressively amortizing our
public debt, and that a balanced
budget is being presented for 1932,
even after drastic writing down of
expected revenue," his message ran,
"I believe it will be agreed our gov-
ernment finances are in a sound
Can Meet Appropriations.
Although asserting appropria-
tions to relieve employment and
help farmers of the drought area
would tend to increase the deficit
as estimated, he expressed the opin-
ion these needs could be met with-
out undue danger.
The president was emphatic in
warning Congress against extrava-
gant appropriations. Strict econo-
my must be observed, he said, if
the narrow surplus estimated for
next year is to be realized and a
deficit for that period avoided.
Negative Team Competes With
Albion in No-Decision
Michigan's Varsity negative de-
bating team last night met the Al-
bion affirmative squad at Albion
in a no-decision contest on the
question, "Resolved: that the sev-
eral states should enact legislation
providing for compulsory unem-
ployment insurance." The team
will engage Kalamazoo normal at
Kalamazoo tonight on the same
question. This subject will be ar-
gued in all debates this year.
Two more no-decision contests,
one with Purdue Dec. 9 at Lafay-
ette. Ind., and the other with De-
Pauw, Dec. 10 at Greencastle, Ind.,
have been scheduled for the nega-
tive team before the first confer-
ence debate of the season with In-
diana Dec. 11. The affirmative
team will meet Ohio State also on
Dec. 11, Floyd K. Riley, coach of
the squad, announced yesterday.
The negative team, in order of
speaking, is composed of John
Huss, '33, Victor Rabinowitz, '31,
and Nathan Levy, '31, with Samuel
Ellis, '33, as alternate. The affir-
mative team, includes John Led-
erle, '33, Leonard Kimball, '33, and
Howard Simon, '32L, with Maurice
Moyer, '32, as alternate.
Coach Riley stated that the ad-
ditional debates which are being
arranged with nearby colleges, will
be announced later. The schedule
arranged for the teams is the most
extensive undertaken in years.
