By John Thomas
Eddie Lowrey's Maize and Blu
sextet scored a fast victory over the
Ontario Agriculture College hocke3
team on the Coliseum ice last night
before 900 spectators, 3 to 1. Mich-
igan distributed its scoring equally
ir the three periods while the visi-
tors \netted their lone goal in the
mn iddle third.,
Although the first match of the
new'year did not bring out the Wol-
verine's usual brand of clever hoc-
key the game was the most inter-
eting from a spectator's viewpoint
hlayed, so far this season by the
chgan sextet. Frequent penal-
ties climaxed several mix-ups in
the last third.
Midway in the last- session Fries
was given a penalty for body-cheqk-
ig Reid within five feet of the
boards. 'Emny' was hurt on the
play but after a short rest, resum-
ed play. The injury gave rise to
faster, more furious hockey, that
took rugged condition to withstand
the punishment. Later in the per-
iod, Fries was again penalized but
Chapman followed him to the pen-
alty botc for tripping, equalizing
ti, hndicap for both teams.
After six minutes had been used
up in the initial session Sindles slid
a pass to Crossman oi1 the Aggies'
ied life. Keith wove through the
defenie, drew the goalie out of po-
otAn, and pushed the puck into
the :=et for the first score of the
- ch. Ontario showed a fast skat-
lhg forward Walit wefe not able

- any Long Shots.
.:Long shots predominated the play
in the second period. Crossman
poked a long one that was tempor-
arily stopped by Goalie Fitzgibbons
but slipped through his feet for a
pointer after eleven minutes had
been played. Scolie came back
about a minute later and drove the
puck into an unprotected corner of
the net for the Aggies' single score.
A pileup in front' of the net gave
the Ontario Center his chance.

American Consul Sends Report
of Attack to Officials
(Sl Associated Press)
Japan's aeepest apologies were
presented Monday for the attack by
three Japanese soldiers in Mukden
Sunday on Culver B. Chamberlain,
Japanese authorities said Mr.
Chamberlain had been molested be-
cause he treated the three Japanese
soldiers "as if they were Chinese"
['The soligiiers at a preliminary hear-
ing declared the American had an
"arrogant, provocative attitude,"
the Japanese officials said.
American consular officers who
received the Japanese apologies at
Mukden declined to say whether
they were sufficient to clear up the
incident, and a report was forward-
ed to Washington.
Meanwhile the center of interest
in Manchuria shifted to the area
between Tsientsin, below the Great
Wall, and Shankaikwan.' Feeling
was strong between Chinese garri-
sons in both cities, but no clashes

Vote to - Distribute to . Necdy
Fron a Far Board's
WASHINGTON, Jan. 4.--(/)-The
Senate voted today to take 40,000,-
000 bushels of wheat from the Farm
Board's buldging bins and distrib-
ute them to the needy.
Its action' climaxed a day in
which criticism of the Administra-
tion's r e1 i e f policies resounded
through the Senate chamber and
committee rooms. Gov. Pinchot, of
Pennsylvania, linked with specula-
tion on Republican Presidential
possibilities, denounced the Hoover
program as "vicious."
The Senate acted, without a roll
call vote, after a vigorous debate.
Senz. Robinson, Arkansas, Demo-
cratic leader, asserted the appro-
priation was the equivalent of a
dole, firmly opposed by President
Thervehicle of action was a reso-
lution by Senators Capper, Republi-
can, Kansas, and Wheeler, Demo-
crat, Montana/ It had the approval
of the Farm Board, which never-
theless contended it should be com-
pensated for the wheat.

Yost, Warner Say Pads Bring
Injuries to Football
NEW YORK, Jan. 4.-(/-The
contenition of Glenn (Pop) Warner,
coach of football at Stanford Uni-
versity, that the present hard hel-
mets, knee, hip and shoulder pads
worn by football players are re-
sponsible for many of the present-
day injuries has a supporter in
Fielding H. (Hurry Up) Yost, ath-
letic director at the University of
The World-Telegram today has
quoted Yost as telling E. K. Hall,
chairman of the Football Rules
committee, that hard hip and leg
pads were responsible for every
death he investigated.
Fitting the semi-ylindrical pad
worn by football players on the.
front of the upper leg to his own
leg, Yost pointed out at it and told
Hall: "There is the killer."
"You don't have to use your
imagination;" Yost said, "to realize
what would happen when the tim-
ing of- the runner's stride is such
that his knee and upper leg, en-
cased in that thing, come in sharp
contact with the unprotected neck
of the tackler.-
"Perhaps only once in a hundred
times is the timing and the contact
such that a damaging hurt results.
But the chance is always there and,
with more than a million college
and high school boys engaged in
organized and supervised football,
and goodness knows how many in
unorganized play, the mystery to
me is that pads haven't done more
Hall asked Yost to present the
same material to the rules commit-
tee at its annual meeting next
Warner, in a letter read before
the Football Coaches association
meeting here last month, charged
that much of the present equip-
ment was designed, not to protect
the wearer, but to punish the op-
posing player. He said just as much
protegtion could be afforded by
more yielding and softer pads.
Tax Receipts Go 'Way Up;
Prosperity has already returned
to Ann Arbor if tax receipts are any
sign of a city's financial condition.
December tax collections showed
an increase of more than $100,000
over last years receipts, according
to Ernest Wurster, city treasurer.
Wurster and his staff have counted
$742,395.06 and they estimate that
75,000 remain to be collected. The
December total for 1930 was $684,-

BAND0 WILL BE CUT
TO 70 MEN FOR
Reduction in Organization's Size
Is Definitely Announced
by Director Falcone.
EFFICIENCY IS SOUGHT
Change Is Expected to -Fortify
Its Reputation, Bettering
Music and Marching.
Michigan's Varsity band will be
definitely cut to 70 men for the 1932
football season, it was learned yes-
terday in an interview with Nicho-
las D. Falcone, diector of the or-
ganization for the past seven years.
The reduction in number of men
will make Michigan's organization
one of the smallest in the Western
Conference. Illinois has the largest
number with 350, Indiana-next with'
250, Minnesota and Northwestern
have 225 while Purdue, Ohio S-ate'
and Wisconsin have well over 100
In commenting on the action
which he will take next year, Fal-
cone stated that he is not cutting
the band becquse of the difficulty
in handling the organization as has
been generally believed by the stu-
dent body but because of the un-
reliability which the members of
the band have shown towards daily
drill and rehearsals all through the
season and because there are not
enough reserve *pn to fill vacan-
cies when they occur.
"This year," he said, "we had a
band of 101 pieces and exactly 104
tried out. If a university is to main.-
tain a 100'piece band it must have
close to 175 tryin' out so that it'
may choose the best musicians and
keep enough on reserve to fill va-
cancies. Because of sickness, ineli-
gibility and unreliability on the
part of the men there were often as
many as 11 andi 12 vacancies at
drills and it wa.oaten necessary tq
fill in positions on Saturdays with
"dummies" (men who merely hold
instruments and march) in order
to keep the band at its size.
"A condition such as this, which
lowers the standing of the band
should not exist and should be rem-
edied in some way and if not
enough men are to be had to fill
these vacancies, the band must be
cut. With a .band of 70 pieces we
will be able to select only the best.
musicians, those who will -be able
to be at drills and rehearsals regu-
larly and at the same time will be
able to train and keep on reserve
30 more men who will be able to
step into any vacancy which might
For the past seven years it has
been generally conceded among
music critics and football fans that
Michigan's band has risen from an
unimportant position to one of the
finest organizations in the country.
Both marching and music have
been commended often and it was
not until the 1931 season that any

Mrs. Cook's attorney, former Gov--
ernor Nathan L. Miller, based his
claim on a New Yorli statute which
went into effect last Septehber and
states that a next Qf kin can nob
be out off from a share nanses-
tate by the provisions of a will. At-
torney Miller contended that as the
divorce decree was issued in North
Dalota and Mr. Cook was a resi-
dent of New York, the decree sever-
ing their kinship was invalid.

ference in New, York and said yesd
terday that the actual signing of

the very near future.
The settlement of the case was
in no sense a compromise, and the
University should b# entirely stis-
fied with the result, according to
