Whether or not the Wolverines
will be succesful tonigt in their ef-
fort to stop the mi hty Buckeye

tion of Hank Weiss, an Ohioan him-
self, who has been under the wea-

With Northwestern having gone

means that the Purple will still

- Wildcat Scores Same.
a.oth Michigan's and Ohio State's
records against the Wildcats are
each the same. Each of these teams
dropped a one point decision to the
defending title-holders, , and both
of the games were played on North-
western's home court. On the basis
of these statistics there ,seems to
be little to choose between the par-
ticipants in tonight's game.
Should IWeiss be able to take his
regular place at guard, the lineup
will remain the same as it has been
in recent games. Williamson will
handle ,the other guard position,
Garner will jump center, and Dan-
iels and Eveland will take care of
the forward berths. In case Weiss
does not play Shaw will be in at

men upon whom the Scarlet and
Gray will depend to score most of
the points, will 'be ophomores.
Colburnn and Fuggitt are the two
Ohio forwards, while Conrad will
jump center. Colburn was easily the
star of the Buckeye team during its
early season games, but hasn't
been going as well in their last few
starts. If he is off form, Brown may
replace him, but it is alm'ost cer-
tain that Colburn will at least start.

What was described as the most violent riot in British penal history
occurred in Dartmoor prison (shown above), old penal colony near
Plymouth in southern England, when prisoners' demands for sugar for;

wounded after an all-day fight lietween 300 prisoners and guards, in
which several main buildings were fired.




Writer Tells Things
as Seen That Make
Jp Personality.

gconsin Professor Contradicts,
Preuss' Stand on Embassy Litquor


Things he had seen in speech and
print-things that combine to make
up the term "personality"-were
pictured to an audience of 1,500
persons last night in Hill Auditor-
ium by Johp B. Kennedy associate
editor of Collier's.
Speaking on "What Makes Per-
sonality?," Kennedy first defined
the term, gave to the audience the
essential qualities of personality,
and then described, by means of
events he had "covered" and "in-
terviews" he had secured, the way
in which these qualities stood out.
He drew for his audience illus-
trations of events he had seen
while a newspaper reporter, rang-
ing from a championship prize
fight and the radio debut of Jack
Dempsey to the execution of a
youth at Sing Sing .and the Scopes
trial a few years ago in Dayton
Tenn.m,-inwhioh vhea late Willia.-
Jennings Bryan and Clarence Dar-
row were the leading legal counsels.
Although not pointing out in ro-
tation the'qualities of personality,
Kennedy pointed out four: a sense
of humor, satisfaction with one's
self, happiness in ne's work, and
friendship. These, he said, are the
things going to make up the per-
sonality-the outward expressed of
the inward self-the soul.
He also said that the present
machine, or industrial civilization,
of which we are a part, affords an
equal, if not a better, chance to
reveal one's personality.
This, he cautioned, didn't mean
that one had to attain fame or for-.
tune to reveal this personality.

Contradiction of the stand taken
by Lawrence Preuss of the political
science department that the impor-
tation of liquor for the use of diplo-
mats is contrary to national and
international law has come from
Madison, Wis.
Prof. Pitman B. Potter, of the
University of Wisconsin political
science department, according to a
Big Ten News service dispatch, con-
tends that there is no precedent to
justify the prevention of the im-
portation of diplomatic liquors.
Quoting from the Wisconsin Daily.
Cardinal, the dispatch says:
"The importation of intoxicating
liquors by foreign diplomats is ab-
solutely legal and there is no
precedent to justify its prevention
according to Professor Potter of the
political science department and\
world-wide authority on interna-
tional law."

unique among political scientists in
contending that national statutes
should bow before international
Several letters have been received
from diplomatic officials in Wash-
ington praising Preuss' treatment of
the subject as being absolutely
sound. The excuse for continuing to
allow the practice is summed up in
their statement, "policies of expe-
diency warp the law."
