ST. LOUIS, Dec. 2.-(I)-Failing
in last-minute effort to obtain fi-
nancial aid, the Wabash Railway
Co. today was in the hands of re-
ceivers-the first major business
casualty in railroadcircles sinc
the stock market crash and subse-
quent business lull.
Unable to meet its operating ex-
penses in the face of drastic cuts
in freight revenue, the road con-
sented Tuesday to the appointment
in federal court of two receivers,
Walter S. Franklin, St. Louis, new-
ly-elected president of the system,
and Frank C..Nicodemus, jr., New
York, assistant general counsel of
the road.
The receivers were named on pe-
tition of the T. J. Moss Tie Co.,.
which claimed the road was "com-
pletely insolvent" and based its ac-
tion on a claim of $49,651. The
road likewise defaulted on large
interest payments.
The automobile industry, from
which it derived much of its rev-
enue by hauling automobiles and
parts from Detroit, w a s partly
blamed in rail circles for its plight.
This falling off in automobile man-
ufacture and the use of trailers to
haul new automobiles on the high-
ways by Detroit nanufacturers cut
drastically into the road's revenues.
Before accepting rec ivership the
Wabash management made strenu-
ous efforts to obtain aid from the
Pennsylvania railroad, its present
owner, its New York banking af-
filiations and from the government,
but met with refusals on all sides.
The failure also cost the road
any benefit it might have gained
from the interstate commerce coi-.
mission's plan for a national rev-
enue pool to help weaker roads.
Gross earnings of the railroad
for ten months ending last Oct. 31
were said in the bill of complaint
to have been $11,290,000 less than
the same period of 1930 and that
the liabilities of the company ex-
ceeded the book values of its as-
sets by more than $6,000,000.

Lennox Here Two Years Ago.
A year and a half ago, Lennox
Robinson, here as guest director of
Play Production, produced out of
native collegiate talent his own
best-known comedy, "The White-
headed Boy." There was much lisp-
ing of Irish brogue from the actors
that Mr. Robinson cast in his play,
and thosed'on the inside' swore that

again, and this time has brought a
whole troupe of Irish actors, the
Abbey Theatre players. They are
showing "The Whiteheaded Boy"
(with three other plays) with all
the geniality of Irish disposition
that Michigan tried so hard to imi-
tate in their production.
"The Whiteheaded Boy" at Mich-
igan had in its cast some of our
favorite players: Tennent, Todd,
Adams, Gregory, and Holden were
in the production. They have all
gone now, excepting Todd. (The i

He will offer two courses to grad-
uate students, one on the theory of
speech composition and debate, em-
phasizing the medieval period, and
the other seminar in rhetoric and
oratory of the classical period.
Dr. Caplin for many years was a
member of the department of
speech at Cornell. Later he turned
to ,instruction in Greek subjects
and has continued ever since. For
the past few years, in connection
with the classics, he has conducted
advanced courses in classical rhet-
oric to graduate students in public
He also has been a holder of a
fellowship granted by the Guggen-
heim Foundation. Under this grant
he spent a year abroad studying
medieval rhetoric.
Professor O'Neill, in commenting
on the courses, said Dr. Caplin com-
bines in a unique way a knowledge
of Latin and Greek with an appre-
ciation of the needs and problem:

CAMELS are never parched or toasted!

FOLKS who smoke really fresh cigarettes made
from choice sun-ripened tobaccos never have to
give a thought to their throats.
That's because such fresh cigarettes retain natural
moisture - and are gratefully smooth, cool, throat-
friendly, mild.
Camels are the fresh cigarette- everyone knows
that now-they're blended from the finest Turkish
and mild Domestic tobaccos that money and skill
can buy.
We would never dream of parching or toasting

these choice sun-ripened tobaccos-that would only
drive off or destroy the natural moisture that makes
Camels fresh in nature's own mild way.
The Camel Humidor Pack protects a fine cigarette
fresh with natural moisture - it could do little or
nothing to freshen a cigarette that is dried-out or
If you smoke for pleasure, see for yourself what
freshness means in mildness and flavor -switch to
Camels for just one day-then leave them, if you can1
