today by his physician, Dr. Hubert
S. Howe, as mostly in a semi-con-
scious state preceding a coma from
which he would not emerge.
A bulletin issued late this after-
noon by Charles Edison, a son said:
"In spite of the fact that Mr.
Edison's heart is standing the
strain of his illness unexpectedly
well, it is felt that he is losing
ground. He seems weaker this
afternoon than this morning. No
immediate emergency is expected

-Dignitaries of the nation came
today to Englewood to pay a na-
tion's tribute at the bier of Dwight
W. Morrow.
The funeral setting was as simple1
and quiet as the man himself.
There was little ostentation to
show that a United States senator
who in four short years had risen
to the heights of statesmanshi-
.was to be buried. That was as he
would have wished it.
The service at the First Presby-
terian Church at 3 o'clock this af-
ternoon was for the public, espe-
c i a 11 y the Englewood neighbors
among whom Dwight Whitney Mor-
row was a friend and champion
for 26 years.

Students -Identie;'
Slight Doubt Remains
Assistants to Joseph A. Burs-
ley, dean of students, have been
"identifying" students again.
The photographer who never
says, "Look pleasant, please,"
has finished his 1931 work of
mugging 9,000 students.
The 9,000 pictures of unsmil-
ing students, before the year is
over, will look hopefully up at
bankers who won't cash checks;
at business men w h o won't
charge suits, and at taxicab
drivers to whom thepictures
won't mean a thing anyway.
In fact, advance reports have

no one can make specific pledges

History Professors
Add to Experience
by Globe-Trotting
History professors at the Univer-
sity spent the greater part of the
summer months globe-trotting, vis--
'iting far corners of well-known and
little-known places, to the extent
of adding thousands of miles to
the department's experience.
Prof. Arthur E. Boak, head of the
department, is at present in Egypt
in connection with the University
excavations there. He is on leave
of absence for the year.
Prof. Arthur S. Aiton visited Eng-.
land, France, Germany, Austria,
Spain, and Czecho-Slovakia, spend-
ing a full month in Germany alone.
Prof. Arthur L. Cross confined his
activities to an automobile tour
through southern France.
Prof. Earle W. Dow traveled in
France and northwestern Spain\
including in his tour a visit to one
of the world-famous shrines in the
Pyrenees. Prof. Arthur L. Dunham
spent virtually all of his time in
France, while Prof. Howard M.
Ehrmann covered France, Italy,
and Germany, his home being in
the last named country.

Action Taken to Prevent Nation
From Becoming Fascist,
BERLIN, Oct. 7-(P')-Chancellor
Heinrich Bruening got rid of his1
entire cabinet today and immed-
iately undertook the formation of
a new government that will rule
Germany under a virtual dictator-
The resignations of the complete
ministry were submitted- by the
chancellor to Paul von Hindenburg,
the nation's stern old warrior pres-
ident, and Herr Bruening straight-
way was commissioned to form a
cabinet whose members will be able
to withstand Nationalist and Na-
tional Socialist attacks when the
Reichstag reconvenes next Tues-
Dictatorial Decrees Issued
With the ministerial shift came
a long series of new emergency de-
grees, signed by President, which
give the government far-reaching
powers in dealing with the nation's,
financial and econoic burden and
in thwarting the attempts of the
opposition parties to make* Ger-
many Fascist or Communist-.
These decrees were interpreted
by some observers as sufficiently
elastic to enable the government
to abrogate such fundamentals as
the inviolability of the person,,the
home and the mails. They reach
far into the provinces of private
business, even to the salaries of
certain employes. The government
is empowered to declare void any
long term contract between em-
ployer and employee which stipu-
lates a salary of more than $3,500.

Pepper' and 'Wild Bill' Lead
Cardinals to Third


PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 7.-(~)-
"Pepper" Martin collaborated again
today with "Wild Bill" Hallahan to
baffle the the Athletics, perch vic-
tory on the National League ban-
ner and put the Cardinals within
one game of the World Baseball
The Cardinals romped easily to
triumph in the fifth game of the
series, 5 to 1, as Hallahan posted
his second straight victory over
the World Champions and Martin
continued on the wildest batting
rampage in the history of baseball's
annual big show.
It gave the Red Birds the lead,
three games to two-an advantage
enjoyed by the National League's
forces for the first time 'in seven
years. The Cardinals, now in com-
mand, with only the great George
Earnshaw to do much worrying
a b o u t, return to their home
grounds with two chances to cap-
ture the fourth and deciding con-
test. The sixth game is scheduled
Friday at St. Louis, and the seven-
th, if necessary, on Saturday.
The smartest piece of strategy
since the seri1; opened, the eleva-
tion of the sensational "Pepper"
Martin to thecleanup position in
the Cardinal batting order in place
of Sunny Jim Bottomley, w a s
crowned with results of the guad-
iest variety as the rookie outfielder
routed the veteran Waite Hoyt and
had the Athletics as a whole shell-
shocked for the fifth straight game
wit.h bid personal exploits..

Chemist Discusses Volatility,

Volatility and knock-rating are
