(Special 4o The Daily)
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Nov. 17.-
Muzzling of the collegiate press
throughout the country is foremost
in the minds of 140 delegates to
the national convention of Sigma
Delta Chi, honorary Journalistic
fraternity, which is in session here.
Although the program has been
given over mostly to Alumni speak-
ers, the college editors have ex-
pressed themselves dissatisfied with
"Censorship on the part of certain
university officials and journalism
departments."
Ohio State University was cited'
by the Columbus delegate, M. Phil-
lip Chapman, as 'an institution
where the dean of Journalism
teaches the theory of freedom of
the press and at the same time re-
fuses student editors the right to
exercise editorial opinion on vital

the dinner; Anne Campbell will
read poems; and Fielding H. Yost,
director of athletics, will speak on
"Time and Tide."
Herman Roe, field secretary of
the N.E. A., will talk on "The News-
paper and the Man Behind It." A
discussion and business meeting
will follow Roe's address.
Union Doorman Tired
Preventing Co-Eds
From Crashing Gate
George Johnson is one man who
has trouble keeping the co-eds from
bothering him.
George is the doorman at the Un-
ion and to him women are just a
nuisance. They always try to get
past him and sneak in the front
door. Johnson wouldn't mind this
so much himself but, orders are
orders.
A good many of the co-eds have
tried various methods to get into
the Union by the front entrance.
One of them, to win a bet, climbed
over side of the steps and hid un-
til she thought the doorman wasn't
looking and then made a dash for
it.
Johnson was on the job though,
grabbed her, and sent her out
again.

about' the disagreeable business of
determining who shall pay the in-

ury deficit this year.
Democratic chieftans joined the
Republican pilots in peering into
the financial status' of the Ameri-

tain that President Hoover is go-
ing to follow a recommendation by
Secretary Mellon for new revenue.
While Mr. Mellon guarded his
program, capitol hill leaders focus-
ed on incomes from '$20,000 upward
as the first ob IectWe tof d~dtto1T
money. Increased rates for the
large inheritances also appeared
certain. .Restoration of the gift tax
looked like the third point in the
plan.

(Special to The Daily)
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Nov. 17.-
Editors of the University of Min-
nesota Daily are mysterious about
the Little Brown Jug.
They hint that perhaps the or-
iginal jug was taken from; Michi-
gan back in 1927, and that since
then a substitute has been in use
as 'the original. Also, they hint
that the original may be in an at-
tic not more than two blocks from
the campus here, and that for the
first time in some years the "real"
jug will journey back to Ann ArborE
town.
Oscar Munson, who first captured
the jug and who is now equipment
custodian at the university here,
has promised the Minnesota Daily
a "big story" the Tuesday follow-
ing the game Saturday, and stu-
dents here think that a long story
will be told concerning . the miss-
ing jug.

HUGHES CHALLENGES HYPOTHESIS
OF MAN'S EVOLUTION FROM APE

Merely Closely Related, States
Anthropologist.
The present day ape is only a
close relative of, and not the father
of man, said Byron O. Hughes, in-
structor of anthropology, in a radio
talk yesterday afternoon over radio
station WJR.
"Evolution does not refer speci-
fically to the descent of man from
the ape," Hughes said. "To put it
more broadly, evolution implies
that life forms in the past were not
the same as they are now, nor will

the horse is more like a donkey
than it is like a cow. In this same
way," said Hughes, "does the scien-
tist compare man withi the ape."
Cro-magnon, who lived 50,000
years ago, was superior to present
day man, acording to Hughes. "He
was large and finely proportioned,
and if one is to consider size of
brain, erectness of carriage and
muscular development as signs of
superiority, modern man has a long
way to go before he will be the
equal of Cro-magnon man.
