Proceeds to Assist in Providing
Christmas for Children in
University Hospital.
Medical Society Hopes to Close
Drive With, Completed Quota
Wednesday Night.
Galens' annual drive for the ben-
efit of the 500 crippled children at
the University hospital will open at
8 o'clock this morning when stu-
dents will be asked to purchase
tags, and will continue until tomor-
row night. The quota for the drive
has been set at $1,500.
At a meeting of the Student
Council last week a resolution was
passed commending the drive and
advocating that all students sub-
scribe to the fund which will be
used for such a worthy purpose.
Chairman Appeals.
Money contributed will be used
to make Christmas an enjoyable af-
fair for the children. Funds left
over each year go to pay the ex-
penses of the workshop on the fifth
floor of the hospital where the chil-
dren are taught handicraft work.
Wallace Steffenson, '31, chairman
of the drive, stated yesterday that'
"these children, maimed by disease
and away from home ties will look
forward to a visit from Santa with
great hope, but unless the campus
helps us as an organization to fill
the shoes of the mythical old gen-
tleman, the children's hopes will be
in vain."~
Houses Canvassed.
Galens, he said, attempts to give
them things which will have a cer-
tain degree of permanence-dolls
and games for the girls, mechanical.
toys and games for the boys, in
addition to the inevitable Christ-'
mas candy.
Fraternities and sororities are be-

the hope that the individual mem-
bers of the societies contributing
will give their support to the cam-{

Harrison Asserts He Will Block
Appointment of Brossard.
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 8--The Sen-
ate today gave quick approval to
President Hoover's choice for secre-
tary of labor, William N. Doak, Vir-
ginia, but notice was given of a
contest on one of his tariff commis-
sion nominees, 'Edgar B. Brossard,
of Utah.
Doak was confirmed without de-
bate on motion of Senator Heflin,
Democrat, Alabama.
At the same time, Senator Har-
rison, Democrat, Mississippi, said
off the floor there would be "stren-
uous opposition" to Brossard when
the six tariff nominations reach the
Senate. The finance committee, of
which Harrison is a member, con-
cluded its examination of the nomi-
nees late todsy and called a meet-
ing for tomorrow to make their re-
port. Chairman Smoot predicted all
six would be confirmed.
Brossard, a Republican, and Al-~
fred P. Dennis, of Maryland, a
Democrat, both hold-overs from
the old commission, were question-
ed at length today regarding a
statement issued by the commission
last spring before the Hawley-
Smoot bill was passed saying agri-
culture would benefit greatly by
the measure.
Dennis said he signed the state-
ment while "asleep at the switch,"
that its phraseology was changed
without his knowledge and that he
later condemned it. He conceded
m a n y farm rates had been in-
creased, but contended these would
prove ineffective.
Doumergue Names Newcomer to
Take Up Unfinished Task ,
of Louis Barthou. -
(Qv Associated Press)1
PARIS, Dec. 8. - A newcomer in1
leading Frenlh political moles, Sein-
ator Pierre Laval, noted lawyer,
worksed feverishly tonight to con-
struct a government where an older
hand had failed.
Invited today by President Dou-
mergue to form a new cabinet, af-
ter the efforts of Senator Louis
Barthou had failed, Laval was*
meeting with difficulties similar to
those encountered by his colleague.
The veto of the radical socialist
party against inclusion of any
member of the right in the new
combination was renewed, and, as'
in Barthou's case, apparently was
the stiffest obstacle for Laval to
negotiate on his way to the premi-
Laval, however, a close friend of
Aristide Briand and former Premier
Andrew Tardieu, tonight appeared
to have better chances of success
than Barthou had.
His advantage, it was reported by
his close friends, lay in his decision
not to insist upon the entrance in-
to the government of a number of
the "right" parties, as Barthou had
done. The right group advocates
religious training in public schools.
Meanwhile, the right g r o u p,
headed by Louis Marin, against
which exclusion was pronounced by
the radical socialist party, said they
were not satisfied to consider Tar-
dieu as sufficient representation in
the new cabinet and will insist on
another minister or two and sever-
al undersecretaries of state.

cratic uprising in the S e n a t e

ployment pregrain signalized re-
porting today by Congressional
committees of the first of the emer-
gency measures.'
Led by Senator Walsh, Massachu-
setts, a half-dozen Democrats took
the floor to deno nce the admini-
stration proposal as a "drop in the
bucket" and to gemand a Demo-
crat.c program of
greater dimen h

tee. The administration urged $25,-

Walsh compared the Hoover ad-
ministration to "the fiddling by
lNerQ 8e a F .r c d." He- pro-,
posed that the government appro-
priate $100,000,000 to divide with
states the cost of unemployment

week for government employees.
Copeland Concurs.
Senator Barkiey, Democrat, Ken-

cates. Senators Caraway, of Arkan-

land, of New York, joined in the
Democratic attack and in support
of a party program beyond that
recommended by the President.
Meanwhile, the House received
the $30,000,000 drought relief bill

Members Oppose Attitude' That
Student Council Took but l
Approve Action.
Campus Conference Considered;
Committee on Arrangements
Indignant at not being consulted
as to their views regarding the
holding of fraternity dances the
night of the J-Hop, members of the
Interfraternity council at a meet-
ing yesterday afternoon passed a
resolution opposing the "attitude"
taken by the Student Council in
regard to the J-Hop house party
This does not mean that the body
disapproved of the rule made by
the council, but rather their atti-
tude in assuming so much power
before consulting those most con-
cerned. A second resolution was
passed approving the prohibition of
fraternity dances on the night of
the 1931 J-Hop.
Minorities Object.
During the meeting a strong mi-
nority offered objections to the ac-
tion taken by the council last week
stating that the rule would deprive
many students of attending private
parties, while under no circum-
stances, would they attend the J-
Hop. It was further pointed out
that in past years the number of
fraternities holding J-Hop house
parties has been so small that the
closing of the private functions
would be of little financial assist-
ance to the J-Hop committee. Sev-
eral members attacked the enor-
mous amount of money expended
in sponsoring the dance.
Those favoring the ruling stressed
the possibility of the affair not be-
ing a financial success this year
beciuse of the business depression
unless this action be taken. The
protection of an old Michigan cus-
tom which might be abandoned
unless given added support was an-
other argument offered favoring
the ruling. V
Committee Named.
A special cornmittee was appoint-
ed by James Ward, '31, president of
the council, to consider plans for
the holding of an interfraternity
conference on the campus. They
are Carl S. Forsythe, jr., '32, chair-
man, Donald Bell, '31, and Ward.
Fraternities not paying t h e i r
dues by Dec. 19 will be subject to
discipline, it was announced. Ward
pointed out that the discipline for
delinquent members might take the
form of social probation or restric-
tion of rushing privileges.
Plotters Hear Altered Decree
Joyfully; Other Sentences
(8v Associated Pres)
MOSCOW, Dec. 8. - Five promi-
nent engineers, who at midnight
beard a fateful verdict of four su-
preme court judges that they must
die for plotting intervention in
Soviet Russia, were made joyous to-
day by commutation of their sen-

tences to 10 years imprisonment.
Three others, condemned to 10
years imprisonment by the verdict
after a great public trial that had .{
lasted since Nov. 25, were given
commutation to eight years im-
prisonment. All were deprived of
citizenship rights for five years and
their property will be confiscated.
The men whose lives were saved
were Leonid Ramsin, leader of the
conspirators; Alexander Fedotov,
oldest of the group, who had begged
pitiously for mercy throughout the
hearing; Victor Larichev, first as-
sistant to R.amsin; Nicolai Char-'
novsky and Ivan Kalinikov.
Those whose imprisonment was
reduced from ten years to eight
were Vladimir Ochkin, 30 years old
and youngest of the band; Sergei
Kuprianov, and Xenophon Sitnin.
The commutation was decided by
the central executive committee of
the Union of Socialist Soviet Re-
nublics, which declared that since
the defendants had confessed and

Elaborate Settings to Feature
Annual Sophomore Dance.
Plans for the decoration of the
Union ballroom for the annual
Soph Prom Friday night, were an-
nounced yesterday by Charles P.
Worst, general chairman.
Palms, ferns, and flowers will be
distributed in abundance through-
out the ballroom. A huge illumin-
ated "33" will be placed directly
over the stand for the orchestra.
While there will be no predomin-
ate motif in the decorative scheme,
elaborate decorations have been
Freddy Bergin, the leader of the
orchestra will provide music for the
Prom, will personally make a trip
to Ann Arbor Thursday to super-
vise the placing of the orchestral
platform, as well as to check up
on other details.
Tickets, which will be sold until
the time of the dance may be ob-
tained at the Union, as well as in
Angell and University halls.

the two weightiest problems that
have confronted the city in the
past year, Ann Arbor's -Common
Council sanctioned both the con-
struction of a new sanitary sewer
system and the incorporation of
the various health units of Wash-
tenaw county into one centralized
Meeting at first in a public hear-
ing on a city rezoning issue, the
council adjourned after an unus-
ually short session and reconvened
immediately in a special session
called by Mayor Edward W. Staeb-
ler to take action on a proposal of
the board of public works for the
construction of a sewer system on
which the city will expend approxi-
mately $350,000.
Unanimous Action,
Action to empower the public
works board to advertise for bids
immediately was approved almost
unanimously. Plans for the project,
including two features designed to
help alleviate Ann Arbor's unem-
ployment situation, have already
been drawn up by the city engineer.
Previous action of the council
3pecified that no laborers who had
not lived in the city for at least
three months previous to the
beginning of operations on the
project could b' erployed by the
;ontractor who undertakes the
lontract as long as any Ann Arbor
residents are without work. It was
further decided that no contracting
irm which casts its concrete pipe
>ff the job should be eligible to
inter a bid. This ruling assures the
Imployment of at least 21 addi-
tional men in casting the pipe to

Bond Issue Floated.
A bond issue to cover the cost of
constructing the proposed sewer
system was floated by the city last
After another adjournment, the
,ouncil again met as a committee
)f the whole for the consideration
f a county health unit plan pro-
2osed by the president of the
Washtenaw county medical society.
Terming the move "the most
progressive plan ever undertaken
by Washtenaw county in the inter-
est of public health," Dr. 'J. A.
Wessinger, city health officer, told
the council that more than $24,000,
donations from four health funds,
s available to Washtenaw county
from outside sources for the estab-
ishment of a centralized health
unit for the ounty. One of these
funds alone, 'Senator James Couz-
ns' Michigan Childrens' fund, has
yet aside $10,000,000 for the estab-
ishment of county health units
throughout the state,
Together with the $22,300, which
9s the total yearly appropriation for
inn Arbor, Ypsilanti, and Washte-
naw county for public health activ-
ities, the $24,880 available from
coundations, the total annual funds
available to the new county organ-
ization will be $47,180. Since the
estimated yearly payroll of the per-
sonnel of the county unit is esti-
mnated by Dr. Wessinger at approxi-
mately $37,000, a margin of more
than $10,000 annually remains for
running expenses.
