Opportunities Greater in American
Schools, German Zoologist Asserts

By Norman F. Kraft
"America offers far greater op-
portunities to the student than
So said Dr., R. Woltereck, profes-
sor of zoology at the University of
Leipzig, Germany, in an interview
last night. He explained that the
American schools were much bet-
ter equipped than those of Europe.
Particularly was this true in his
field of zoology, he said, as there
were many more biological stations
and many more lakes for the pur-
pose of marine type studies.
"The great reason for the lack
of facilities in the E u r o p e a n
schools," the scientist said, "is the
lack of funds. Less money is ap-
propriated by the state in Europe
for educational purposes. The
equipment in only a few European
schools such as the University of
Berlin can even compare with
those of the American universi-
Dr. Woltereck said that he par-
ticularly admired the buildings on
the University of Michigan cam-
pus. The architecture of the build-
ings on the new law quadrangle
he described as "'most wonderful."
The library collection, in the ex-
amination of which he said that he

spent most of the day, yesterday,
was one of the most complete he
had ever seen. Speaking of the
Natural Science building, Dr. Wol-
tereck laid stress on the large win-
He said that .when the present
financial crisis had passed he in-
tended to- build a new biology
building at Leipzig and he" stated
that he had drawn a plan of the
Natural Science building here to
use as a model for his new building,
Dr.,Woltereck divulged to the in-
terviewer that Doctors Welch, Ok-
kelberg and Schall of the zoology
department here were recognized
in Europe as three of the most em-
inent biologists in the world. He
stated that the University of Mich-
igan was most fortunate in that
all the professors of its zoology de-
partment were first-class scientists.
Dr. Welch, he explained, was in-
terested greatly in limology while
his time was chiefly devoted to re-
search in genetics.
Speaking on the economic situa-
tion in Germany, Dr. Woltereck
said that "we are in a bad condi-
tion and we are working hard. We
can only hope. "Hitler,'' Dr. Wolter-
eck described as a demagogue and
a "better journalist than a states-

Iowa had the ball in the scoring

only to lose it on downs. In the,
fourth period they advaiced to the
Indiana eight-yard line.
EVANSTON, Oct. 17---(AP)-It took
Ken Meenan, 190-pound sophomore'
halfback, to shake Northwestern
into stride today before the Wild-
cats could defeat the University of
California's southern branch elev-
en, 19 to 0.
Northwestern's attack was im-
mensely superior, netting 18 first
downs to two for the westerners,
but ragged play in the first period
and an effective Bruin forward pass
defense kept the Wildcats from
scoring until the second session.

the final quarter Michigan had the
ball on the Buckeye three-yard line
but lost it on downs. The one lone
touchdown of the game occurred
just a few moments before the gun
ended the first half.
Frequent fumbles and penalties
marred a game entirely devoid of
sparkling play. The outstanding
performer of the Wolverine team
was Lindsey, quarterback, while
Fisher, right end, excelled in the
Buckeye lineup.

Daily Cardinal Poll Indicates
Divided Opinion on Choice
of Michigan, Iowa.
Student sentiment at the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin seems divided be-
tween Iowa and Michigan for their
choice of the team to battle the
Badgers in a post-season game, as
shown by a poll held by the official
publication, The Daily Cardinal.

Cardinal now leads the Wolverines
by a vote of X79 to 354. Northwest-
ern is a bad third with 287, while
not a vote has been cast in Indi-
ana's favor.
Reasons for these results seem
explainable in a paragraph reading
"The power shown by the Wildcats
and the weak showing of the Bad-
gers up to present, makes a tilt be-

sharp contrast, Iowa, a bitter riv-
