Camden, Ark., was one of the worst sufferers from the storms that
wrecked property and took human life in Arkansas, Louisiana and Mis-
sissippi. These scenes show how a tornado chiseled most of the second
floor off the courthouse (top) and blasted out both front and rear walls
of the First Methodist church (below).

Lackadaisical Upper-Classmen
Confuse Classification.
A new problem has cropped up to
bother the people who close the
sections over in room 4, University
It isn't that advance classifica-
tion hasn't been going well; it has,
which is proved by the fact that 62
sections were filled when the office
closed last night. It seems that
each 'of, the classes has had one
week allotted it in which to classi-
The plan has always worked fine
heretofore, and it's going good now.
The trouble is that only a part of
the seniors classified week before
last, while a portion of the juniors
who were slated to pick out their
courses last week didn't bother,
So now, in addition to the sopho-
mores who are supposed to have
exclusive use of the facilities of the
office this week, there have been
numerous members of th upper
classes trying to make up for lost
Advance predictions seem to in-
dicate that the freshmen who are
supposed to do their classifying the
first week after vacation will have
a tough time.
Pittsburgh Five Wins
From Hoosiers, 29-24
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Dec. 16.-.1
/P) - Indiana University's speedy
cagers cracked in an overtime per-
iod game here tonight, and gave
Pittsburgh leeway enough to push
over a.29 to 24 victory in the Hoos-
iers' home court, the Pittsburgh
team rallying strongly as the Crim-
son team wilted.
Students May Drive.
After Tomorrow Noon
Respite from the automobile reg-
ulation for the two-weeks Christ-
mas vacation period was announced
yesterday by Walter B. Rea, assist-
ant. to the dean of students. The
ban will be lifted at noon tomor-
row and is to .be resumed .at 8:00
o'clock Monday morning, January
Rea called particular attention to
the necessity for procuring 1932
permit tags for all cars with new
licenses and bearing student per-
imits. He indicated 'that students
permitted to drive should register
their 1932 plates with him as soon
as they were procured.
This ruling applies also to cars
in storage in Ann Arbor and those
operated by Ann Arbor residents,
who are permitted to use cars on
al family business if they have
been registered with the dean of
Galens Raises $1500
for Cripples' Party
Students and townspeople re-
sponded to the appeal of Galens,
junior medical society, which yes-
terday completed a two-day drive
to raise funds for the annual
Christmas party for crippled child-
ren in University hospital, to the
extent of about $1,500, it was an-
pounced last night.
Comparison with the collection of
previous years revealed that the
proceeds of the 1931 tag sale were
somewhat smaller than those of
1930. A total of $1,900 was donated
last year.

Michigan State
Sports Program
Making Money
EAST LANSING, Dec. 16.-(1P)-
While depleted revenues are keep-
ing many college athletic directors
busy with their budgets, Michigan
State's athletic program is appar-
ently on a sounder financial basis
than last year..
Ralph H. Young, Spartan ath-
letic director, announced today that
indications were that football rev-
enues will exceed the income of last
year. Complete figures are not
available inasmuch as a final ac-'
counting has not been made on the
Michigan and Detroit games.
In contrast with many other
schools, Michigan State authorities
do not plan any curtailment of the
s p o r t s program. Intercollegiate
hockey competition will be elimin-
ated this year, but weather condi-
tions are responsible.
State's winter sports w ill be
somewhat affected by the athletic
depression in other colleges. One
match probably will be, dropped
from fencing, wrestling and swim-
ming in view of existing financial
conditions among -Michigan State's
competitors. '
State's southern trip during the
baseball training season will be
scheduled the same as in past years.
Director Young said that reven-
ues probably will go above the $98,.
400 sports budget at the college. It
as estimated that receipts would
tttal at least $105,000.

"His announcement that res

the first annual Novice boxing
tournament last night in the box-
ing room of the Intramural build-
ing. Seven bouts went three
rounds to a decision and John Kir-
by was given a technical knockout
over Hugh Rumler for the light-
heavyweight title.
Kirby used straight lefts to with-
stand Rumler in the first two ses-
sions and.landed a series of hard
rights on the Rumler's nose. In the
third round it bled so profusely that
h'is effectiveness was destroyed, and
his second threw the towel into
the ring, forfeiting the fight.
Bollock easily won the heavy-
weight title from Thevine. When
Coach Let Philbin could not find
an opponent for the husky Bollock,
Thevine offered to challenge him,
He had to give Bollock more than
25 pounds and in the first round
this advantage began to tell as Bol-
lock tired him out.
Thevine realized this and decided

thundered its applause for The-
vine's antics and went away laugh-
ing and joking about him.
Hertric won the first fight on the
card by outpointing Wolfe in the
bantamweight division. Bill Pocock
got a large ovation from the aud-
ience as he climbed through the
ropes and proceeded to outbox and
outhit Marshal Leff for the feather-
weight crown.
VerBurg won the referee's deci-

a draw from Mortimer. The light-
weights'put on one of the outstand-
