Laval P a y s Tribute
to Americanr
WASHINGTON, Oct. 23*V-) £
-Premier Pierre Laval, of France .
paid homage today at the shrine v..
of the American Unknown Soldier
who died fighting in the premier's
native land.
The premier began a busy day
with a visit to Arlington. The
day's end was to see him in a
conference with President Hoover
over methods by which the United
States and France could co-oper-
ate to ease the cares of the world.
Uppermost in their minds was
the thought of closer co-operation
between France and America to
ease the increasing strain on world
finance, with its related political

Fall Meeting of American Iron
and Steel Institute
Shows Increase.
NEW YORK, Oct. 23.-(IP)-Be-
lief in slow but sure rivival of busi-
ness throughout the United States
was the keynote sounded today at
the annual fall meeting of the
American Iron and Steel Institute.
While leaders of the industry,
headed by Charles M. Schwab,
president of the Institute, did not
attempt to gloss over the fact that
the country has encountered a
"real depression," they were gen-
erally of the opinion that there
were indications of a general im-
Mr. Schwab said we had seen the
country weather a number of seri-
ous depressions, only to emerge
more prosperous than before.
"History will repeat itself," he
added. "Fear has been lessened.
There will be no collapse. The
cources of credit have been mod-
ilized and we shall pull through.
"I believe in t n e continued
growth of our country, the essen-
tial strength of the steel industry
and the ability of our nation to
master of problems."
Spotted by Airplane, Wierman
Shoots Self; Had Killed
Prison Guard.
TRENTON, N. J., Oct. 23.-(IP)-
Spotted by an airplane and sur-
rounded by pursuers, one of four
convicts who wounded a guard in
escaping from the State prison,
shot and killed himself today in a,
wooded section near Langhorne,
Pa. Authorities identified him as
Jack Wierman, 24 years old, serving
a 15-year term for attempted rob-
bery in Camden County in 1930.
Another member of the fleeing
quartet shot Joseph Campbell, a
Philadelphia policeman, a n d in
turn was wounded by an officer.

Extent of Withdrawal to Depend
on China's Willingness
to Maintain Order.
TOKIO, Oct. 23.-()-Japan
agreed today in pr:nciple with the
League of Nation's plan for evac-
uation by Japan of occupied non-
treaty zones in Manchuria.
High officials announced this
important concession was condi-
tioned upon Chinese recognition
of Japan's treaty commitments in
Manchuria and agreement to give
guarantees for protection of Japan-
ese lives and property. They made
clear, however, that while with-
drawals might be commenced with-
in the three-week limit proposed by
Aristide Briand, acting chairman of
the Council of the League of Na-
tions, Japan cannot promise defin-
itely that all troops will be out of
the nontreaty zones by Nov. 16.
Hope For Negotiations.
The League resolution, up for
general discussion at Geneva, call-
ed for evacuation first and Chino-
Japanese negotiations afterward.
Tokio's hopes that direct nego-
tiations with the Chinese, favored
by Japan from t\e ,beginning, are
possible within the near future are
based chiefly upon M. Briand's
optimism Wednesday after he dis-
cussed with the Chinese represen-
tatives the fundamental principles
for settlement as laid down by
Japan. The view here was the

Another Is Implicated
in Murder Connection
Another person was implicated
in the torch murders yesterday by
Clarence Brucker, 31, criminal be-
ing held in Toledo, according to
Sheriff Jacob Andres, who took a
statement from Brucker yesterday.
He told the sheriff he sold liquor
to Katharine Keller and F r e d
Smith the night before the killings,
and mentioned another person he
said was with them.
Doubt was expressed by officers
of the value of Brucker's claims,
since he has a reputation for un-
reliability and publicity seeking.
Miss Keller will be sentenced in
circuit court this morning.
Lindberghs Home Safe
After Speedy Flight
NEWARK, N. J., Oct. 23.-(P)-
Col. and Mrs. Charles A. Lindbergh,
returning home from the Orient,
landed here at 9:24 o'clock tonight
after a day's flight from Rock
[Springs, Wyo., broken by several
intermediate stops.

Representative Clancy stated that
he, as well as most other wets, is
being accused today as the associ-
ate of sots, bums, and bootleggers.
He said that many of his class-
mates could vouch for the fact,
that while in the University of
Michigan, he never had a drink of

Mrs. Winnie Ruth Judd, 26, sought
for five days in the trunk murder
of Hedwig Samuelson and Mrs.
Agnes Lee Roi, of Phoenix, Arizona,

While officers held back t h e

Revision of Versailles Treaty
Necessary, Says Senator
to Newspapermen.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 23.-(P)-
William E. Borah, the Senate's
champion irreconcilable on Ameri-
can-European political ties, today
told French newspaper correspond-
ents accompanying Premier Laval
that the world needed revision of
the Versailles treaty with Germany.
He warned that if this did not
come peaceably it would come for-
cibly. He believed it fundamental
for world restoration.
Willing to cancel war debts owed
America by the allies if they will
cancel Germany's reparation pay-
ments, Senator Borah expressed the
belief that such a move would have
a "tremendous psychological effect
on the people of the world."
However, he said the time for
any extension of the moratorium of
intergovernmental debts had pass-
Leaning forward in his place as
chairman of the foreign relations
committee with the eagerly ques-
tioning French correspondents cir-
cling him around the imposing
committee table, Borah answered
questions, "frankly, if not diplomat-
ically," as he put it.
Settling of Territorial Dispute

From Paraguay came an expression
of confidence today that troubles

Paraguay claims under original
Spanish colonial boundaries, were

URBANA, Ill., Oct.23.--Urbana felt its first touch of Western,
Conference football fever of the year late last night, as the vanguard
of the homecoming throng that is expected to witness the annual
Michigan-Illinois gridiron clash this afternoon began pouring into
town. A crowd of from 65,ooo to 70,000, many of them old Illinois
alumni, are expected to crowd their way into the huge Memoria&
Stadium to see the game.
While today's encounter will be the first Michigan-Illinois game
in .several years that is expected to have little bearing on the finalt
outcome of the Big Ten race, excitement still runs at a fever pitch,

as these two traditional rivals pre-
pare to face each other this after-
noon. It will be the 17th meeting
between the two teams, with the
Wolverines holding an eleven to
five advantage over the Orange and
Since Bob Zuppke came to Illin-
ois as coach of the Indians,. how-
ever, Michigan's record has not
been as good as in earlier years. In
Zuppke's 11 seasons as head coach
of the Indian teams Michigan has
won six games while losing only
five. This .record gives Michigan
the distinction of being the only
Western Conference school to have
beaten Zuppke's teams more than
Illinois have beat their opponents.
By winning today's game the Illin
can pull up even with their most
bitter rivals in the Big Ten.
Several positions on the Maize
and Blue starting lineup are still
in doubt, and will remain that way


A radio broadcast of the
Michigan-Illinois game will be
given in the Union ballroom
this afternoon. Two radios will
be used.
until just before game time. It is
not yet certain that Captain Solly
Hudson will be in his regular posi-
tion at fullback, his neck injury
received in the Ohio State clash
last Saturday still bothering him
Hewitt May Play Fullback.
If Hudson is kept out of the line-
up Kipke will shift Bill Hewitt,
burly left end, to the fullback post
and give the sophomore sensation,
Ted Petoskey, a chance to work his
first game at end. Petoskey is one
o, une most highly recommended
players ever to come to Michigan,
but he has been unable to break
into the regular lineup this year
because of the fact that two ex-
perienced fiankmen, Hewitt and
Williamson, were holding down the
two end positions.
The remainder of the Wolverine
team will remain the same as in
former games. Williamson will be
at one end, Auer will serve at the
other tackle, Hozer and LaJeunesse
will do guard, and Morrison will
hold down his center job. Stan Fay
and Jack Heston continue to look
the best in their halfback roles.
The Illinois team that will face
the Wolverines today will be large-
ly a "dark horse" aggregation.
Coach Zuppke has assembled ar
group of newcomers to supplement
his holdovers from last year, and
in their first few games the inex-
perienced Indian team has suc-
ceeded in putting upda fairly strong
front. Their only defeat to date
was administered by a strongly
favored Purdue eleven, whotook

Special Railroad and Bus Rates

Every possible means of transpor-
