MADISON, Wis. Jan. g.-+.(A)
-A second period rally that net-.
ted wive baskets in rapid succes-
sion gave Michigan a 24-18 vic-
tory over Wisconsin here tonight.
T h e Wblverines presented a
strong defence that invariably
wrecked the Badger attack. Gar-
ner, at center, proved too much
for the Badgers on both offense
and defense, getting three baskets
and halting numerous Wisconsin
shots. Eveland and ,Weiss also
played strong offensive games.
Nelson Scores First.
Wisconsin led at the half 15-14
and Nelson, Badger guard, was the
first to break into the scoring col-
umn after the start of the second
period caging a goal to widen the
discrepancy. However,Michigan cut
down the gap with a rush, Garner,'
Eveland, and Daniels, who s'ub-
stituted fdr the lanky center at this

Is Jesse James
By Norman F.Kraft.
Claims ofnan aged Missourian
that he is Jesse James were sub-
stantiated here yesterday by Charl-
es Price, 85, a 'local resident, who
Worked as a wandering cowpuncher
in th' old West and was acquainted
with Jesse's brother, Frank.
tPrice has contended for years
that the man who was shot by Bob
Ford and was buried as Jesse James
was not the famous outlaw but a
member of James' gang known as
Tom Howard.' This also was the
contention of the Missouri claim-
ant. James, Price said, went under
various names among them that of
Howard and this resulted in the
confusion which attended the Ford
"Of course," Price said, "I can-
not say that this man who claims
he is Jesse James really is Jesse
James but I am inclined to believe
it. It rings true. I do know how-
ever that Frank James, at his trial
two years after Jesse was supplosed
to have been killed, offered to pro-
duce Jesse as a witness if necess-
ary. Later ,while I was working on
a ranch in Montana I came in di-
rect contact with a man named
Frank Percy who it was confided
to me was the real Jessie James.
"After Frank was elected Mayor of
St. 'Louis h went out of Missouri
and was never bothered. I met him
years afterward in front of a sa-
loon in Arlington, Oregon. It was
a windy day and when the wind
blew back his coat once I noticed
he wore the badge of a United

Price, were not as bad as they are

First Snowstorm Finds Ann
Weeks ago, Alfred J. Paul street
commissioner swore that never
again would a sudden cascade of
snow catch thie city of Ann Arbor
unawares as has happened in past
years. For weeks city officials scan-
ned the horizon for hopeful signs.
Rain fell by the thebarrel but no
Yesterday, however, Mr. Paul
arose and with feelings ofMjubila-
tion, rushed to the city barns. He
realized that there wasn't so much
snow so he ordered out truckfuls
of sand instead of the plows. Eight
unemployed men were given work.
The city's brand new trucks went
into action. But, alas, when the
fighting forces arrived on the scene
of action the snow was already
melted. To maintain the morale of
the city department, they threw the
sand on, anyhow.

versity Council, whih last month
went on record as opposing the Lit-

against giving of information re.
garding faculty apportionment o
time, will be read and discussed, it
was said yesterday.
It is understood that the Literary
College, contrary to council stipu-

and oppose the filling out of a
questionnaire seeking information
as to the number of hours instruc-
tors and professors spend in prep-
aration of classes and lectures, stu-
dent conferences, research, and
other items of routine.
At the same time, the informal
report of the administrative board
will be continued. Other business to
come up is the approval of the cur-

proposed procedure for final exam-
ination schedules in 1932-33.
