Revolt Leaders Claim
Force of 100,000.



Federal General Plans Movement
Against Northern Troops
Under Tabora
(By Associated Press)
MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay, Oct. 9.-
Soldiers of the Brazilian revolution
were reported sweeping northward
tonight toward the port of Sao
Paulo, with the prospects they were
nearer battle with the federal troops
of President Washington Luis. 1
Dispatches from the revolutionary
sources indicated that the conflict
would be in the vicinity of Castro, a
town in the state of Parana about
75 miles from Sao Paulo.
Many Join Rebels.
Meanwhile, in the southern states
w h--i c h gave birth to the revolt,
thousands of volunteers continued
to join the rebel colors, some of
them civilians, some state police
and some soldiers of the regular
army. Many of the latter are com-
manded by their officers, although
in some cases the commission ranks
refused to fall in with the move-
ment and were permitted to go to
neutral territory.
Chieftans of the revolt assert that
100,000 men already have been mo-
bilized, with 30,000 marching toward
the Uruguay river for a union with
the main body toward the capital
district in the north.
Seize Lorena.
The Lanraco11 correspondent here
received a report today which, if
verified, would mean a severe blow
to the federal government. This
said. that revolutionaries had siezed
the railway junction at Lorena, a
city in the state of Sao Paulo, mid-
way between the cities of the latter
name and Rio de Janeiro. Its cap-
ture would cut contact between the
capital and cities which are the
first goal of the rebels, destroying
one hope of the federal government
to effect joint action between the
republic's two largest cities.
Account Shows $14,000 Deficit
in Costs for Year.
It cost $288,539.01 to keep the
legal wheels of Washtenaw county
running last year.
This figure, given out yesterday
with the completion of a detailed
financial account by the county
board of auditors,, failed by more
than $14,000 to meet expenses for
the year ending September 30. The
appropriation for last year, made
by the county board of supervisors,
was $274,250.
The statement listing expendi-
tures of the various departments
will be presented Monday to the
governing board when it convenes
for the October session
A total of $40,229.59, the amount
of credits received from the depart-
mental offices, made the net ex-
penditure during the year $248,-
309.42, leaving a balance in the
treasury of $25,940.58. With the
credits, the county's yearly expense
account totalled $314,479.59.
Overdrawing of accounts were
made by two offices. Probate court,
with an appropriation of $18,000,
listed $18,187.37 as the 1929-30 ex-
penses. Credits of $27.1l, however,
reduced the debit figure to $160.22.
The register of deeds' office ex-
ceeded by $,577.56 its yearly ap-
propriation of $8,400. More than
$8,000 in credits, however, was listed
in the report.
The county clerk's office showed
the largest gain, with credits to-
talling $17,848.95. Expenditures in
this department were $8,819.64 as
against an appropriation of $10,000,
leaving a balance of $1,180.36.

Newspaperman Addresses First
Open Forum of Year on
Liquor Question.
"There is less illegal liquor be-
ing sold in Detroit or Toronto at
the present than there was before
the days of prohibition," stated
Ben H. Spence, United Press cor-
respondent of Washington D. C.,
who spoke yesterday afternoon in
Alumni Memorial hall on the sub-
ject, "The Canadian Liquor Ques-
tion" at the first All-Campus for-
um of the year.
Spence Condemned the govern-
ment control of Canada in every
respect and in reviewing the Amer-
ican situation, expressed the opin-
ion that conditions here were not
in such bad shape as most people
The liquor interests of Canada
spent literally millions of dollars on
propaganda to sway public opin-
ion to the point of adapting gov-
ernment control, the speaker said.
For they realized, he went on that
government agencies would be the
most inexpensive a n d efficient
method of marketing their pro-
Spence further brought out the
point that there was little control
and less government in the so call-
ed government control system. For,
he stated, of the 5,000 drinking es-
tablishments in the Dominion of
Canada, only 400 are government
stores. In further expanding the
point that the present system in
Canada was fostering the con-
sumption of intoxicants rather
than curtailing it, Spence said that
while only 2,000,000 gallons of liq-
uor were consumed in 1923, over
4,000,000 were consumed in 1929.
Arrests for drunkeness increased
by about 50 per cent over the same
period of time.
If the United States should a-
dapt the Canadian plan, Spence
stated, the total drink bill for the
nation would aggregate more than
two and one half billion dollars.

( BvAsocatd Press)
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 9.-A cross-
country air race between Laura
Ingalls, diminutive St. Louis wo-
man flyer, and Robert Buck, 16-
year-old continent hopper, is in
prospect for tomorrow. Each made
plans today to leave from differ-
ent airports at 5:30 a. m. (P. S. T.)
tomorrow in pursuit of new west-
east transcontinental records.
Miss Ingalls, after overhauling
the motor of her Moth biplane

office in the administration build-

issued to men and women alike.
Women will be allowed to sit in
the stunt section in every home
game this season. Such sections
will be made up for the Illinois,
Minnesota, and Chicago games as
well as for tomorrow's struggle
with Purdue.
Seats have all been issued and
are between the 30 yard lines and
rows 27 to 28 inclusive. More than
1,500 seats will be included in thea
Purdue game section while that of
the Illinois game will be slightly
smaller. Three stunts are being
planned for Purdue, "Mich," "U. of
M.", and "Purdue" being listed for
Saturday. The letters will be spell-
ed in yellow on a blue background.
Cards, which have been placed in1
the seats at the stadium, are print-
ed in blue on one side and yellow
on the other. The formations will
be made during the time-out per-
iods but not between the halves.,
Directions will be given by the
cheerleaders; no gun will be used1
as a signal. Students are request-
ed to keep tickets.

on the stunt plan is headed by

Urges President to Seriously
Consider Removal of
Embargo on Gas.
( By A""ssuewd Prss)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 0.--Presi-
dent Hoover was urged today by W.
B. Mayo, chief engineer of the,
Ford Motor company, to give "ser-
ious consideration" to lifting the
embargo against exporting helium
for aircraft to other nations.
Mayo, who is chairman of the
technical committee of the Air-
craft Development corporation of!
Detroit, said in a letter to the pres-
ident that the disaster to the Brit-
ish dirigible R-101 "is one we all,
deplore" but that "the development
of airships must go on."
"Because of its monopoly of hel-
ium," Mayo added, "the United
States owes a responsibility to the
world which in good faith cannot
be ignored. I believe it is time to
give most serious consideration to
the embargo against the exporting
of helium for peace-time pur-

WASHINGTON, Oct. 9.--Presi-
dent Hoover's law enforcement
commission got down to businessl
today in secret session on the task
of formulating its prohibition re-
port, but Chairman Wickersham,
carefully guarded the nature of
the first discussion on this contro-

The demand of some members
that prohibition be made the im-

commission thus was acceeded to.

The same group, including Fed-

of the problem.
Mackintosh said today he did
not expect the commission's state-

ready "tomorrow or the next day"
but added he was backing Chair-

Baker to Return
It became certain today that the
commission will devote not only
the remainder of the present week
but perhaps all of next week to its
task. Newton D. Baker, called
back to Cleveland tonight to work

which he is an attorney, said he
would return next Wednesday to
