Harley McNeal to Be on Mound
for Wolverines Against
George Mills.
Count on Outfielders to Supply
Punch to Michigani
By Sheldon C. Fullerton
Harley McNeal, right handed ace
of Coach Ray Fisher's Michigan
baseball team, is slated to oppose
one of the best hurlers in the West-
ern Conference in George Mills,
when the Wolverines cross bats
with the Illinois diamond team at
2:30 o'clock this afternoon on Ferry
After facing Ohio State at Co-
lumbus yesterday, the Illini team
will be here seeking a victory in
their second game since winning
the Big Ten title last spring. With
a arge group of holdovers from
last year remaining on the squad
the Orange and Blue nine seems
to be one of the outstanding favor-
ites to annex this year's champion-
Should the Wolverines upset the
dope and hand Coach Carl Lund-
gren's outfit a setback the Michi-
gan team would stan itself among
the leading contenders in the Con-
ferenc. Up to. this t i m e, the
strength of the Wolverines has re-
mained unknown, as several of the
men who will fill positions this af-
ternoon are newcomers this season.
Mills is Illini Threat.
McNeal, who has already pitched
everal good games during the
practice season, will have his job,
cut out for him against Mills. Last
year the Illini flinger took his turn
at both first base and the outfield

but due to the loss of Al Hazzard
this season Mills is being counted

t s c ., that he will rely
mostly on milsfast ball to cut down
the Wolvernts. .
Kenny Manuel, who occasionally
takes a turn at pitching or playing
second for the Maize and Blue, will
guard Roy 'udso 's old place at
filrs base for Michigan. Manuel is
a d fielder, but his batting both
Ast season and this spring has
been lighter than was hoped for.
The rest of the infield will be
made up of Norm iDaniels at sec-
ond base, Waterbor at short, and
Art Supearko at third. Both Dan-
iels and Superko are starting their
third years at their respective posi-
tions, but Waterbour is a 'newcomerI
who has been battling with Kracht
for the shortstop brth.
McNeal Probable Starter.
Ferguson, Tompkins, and Artz will
make up the outer garden trio for
the Wolverines. Tompkins is the
only veteran of the three, bth Fer-
guson and Artz being sophomores
who are being counted upon to
supply a greater punch in the Mich-
igan outfield and batting attack.
There is a possibility that either
Wistert or McKay may get a chance
to start the game, but McNeal will
probably get the call because of his
greater experience. McKay is a
left hander.
Illinois will present a veteran in-
fielder to start the game. Ed Wahl
at third, Captain Eddie Tryban at
short, and Eddie Gbur lat econd
are. all lttermen from last year
while Jack Yule at first base was
a letter winner two years ago.
Ivan Schustek and -Fred Frink,

a pair of sophomore ends in foot-
ball, will patrol left and center field
for the Indians, while either Dep-
ken or Steueirnagel will play in right.
Frink recently sustained a broken
thumb, but has sufficiently improv-
ed to face the Wolverines. Steuer-
nagel is a veteran of last year's
championship nine. Either Cher-
vinlko or Toneoff will, handle the

Balfour Calls High Appendicitis
Death Rats Challenge to Medicine)

The percentage of deaths from
appendicitis is greater in the Unit-
ed States than in any other coun-
try of the civilized world, according
to a statement of Dr. Donald C.
Balfour of the Mayo clinic, who
spoke yesterday before the second
session of the No Sigma Nu fifti-
eth anniversary convention in the
Meulelssolvo theatre.
Dr. Balfour pointed to this as
one of the challenges to American
medicine in a talk which reviewed
the past 50 years of progress in
surgery. Delay in diagnosis, he
pointed out, is the chief factor in
causing this high rate.
In regard to the future of sur-
gery, Dr. Balfour expressed the
opinion that it was doubtful whe-
ther surgeons of the future would
ever excell the work that is being
done today. It would require su-
perlative skill, judgment, and ex-
perience to maintain the same lev-
el of pIerfection that has been at-
tained during the past 50 years, he
Death Rate Lowered.
The most' conspicuous. single
characteristic of the present surgi-
cal era, it was pointed out, is the
greatly reduced mortality rate in
operations taken as a whole. Amer-
ican. surgeons have won the admir-
ation of the whole world in this
particular respect, he said.
One. of the conspicuous differ-
ences between research in surgery
at the present and in the period
half a century ago is the fact that
formerly post-mortem examinations
were almost the onlyhsource of
knowledge concerning the internal
structures, whereas now we have
developed a "pathology of the liv-
ing" based upon what has been ob-
served during operations an the
living, Dr. Balfour concluded.
Dr. W. H. Park of New York pre-
sented the other address of the
afternoon, a review of 50 years of
progress in the pzitrol of 'coI un-F
Banking Committee Continues
Quiz on Short Selling
Stock ,Mehods
WASHINGTON, April 22.-(P)-
Hampered by the disappearance of
two Wall Street traders, described
as "bear raiders," the Senate bank-
ing committee today pushed its
quest for information about short
selling of stocks with two promin-
ent operators testifying.
Meanwhile, the house economy
committee gave ground to the ad-
ministration by voting unanimously
e allow President Hoover broad
poweCIs to reorganize the federal
government subject to Congression-
al approval. It was the last big
issue before the group set up by the
Democratic house to reduce gov-
einment expenses, and Chairman
McDuffie said the controversial leg-
islation will be presented to the
House next Wednesday for consid-
William G'ay, counsel for the
banking committee, announced he
had been unable to locate Thomas
E. Bragg and Bernard E. Smith and
had been informed they were try-
ing to evade subpoenas.
Percy Rockefeller, one of the New
York operators called, testified he
had been associated with both men
in operating pools and agreed that
they had a reputation in New York
as "bear raiders." Both Rockefel-
fer and Matthew C. Brush, told the

Wants Liquor Sale
in Doctors' Hands
WASHINGTON, April 22.-(A)-
Placing regulation of liquor sales
in the hands of physicians to im-
prove present conditions was ad-
vocated today by Claudius H. Hus-

icable diseases. Dr. Park, it has
been said, is the foremost man in
America today in the field of pre-
ventative medicine. The first ap-
plication of the principle of admin-
istering anti-toxin to members of
a community on a large scale was
developed by him in 1902 when a
diphtheria plague was ravaging
New York.
Dr. Park brought out the fact that
a communicable disease can be
controlled only to the extent that
individuals can be forced to co-
operate. In epidemics where a
water supply or an insect is the
controlable factor rapid progress is
possible as, for example, with ty-
phoid or malaria. On the other
hand, where the means of infection
depends upon some human element,
such as the transmission of t3e
common cold or the syphilis spiro-
chaete, progres smust necesarily be
slow or negapive, it was indicated.
Following 'the formal addresses
Prof. Carl V. Weller, of the path-
ology department and Prof. Mal-
come H. Soule of the bacterology
department, were formally initiated
inV the Nn Sigma Nu organization
as honorary faculty members.
The formal banquet culminating
the two-day session was held last
night at the Union. Dr. Frederick
G. Novy acted as toastmaster and
Dr. Leon H. Cornwall of the execu-
tive council presided.
Nine Harvard Students Brought
to Court After Attacking
Police Station.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 22.-
(P)-Twelve men appeared in court
today as an aftermath of one of
the wildest riots in the recent his-
tory of Harvard University. Nine
of the men were Harvard students
and the others were Caambuge res-
idents who became involved in the
six hours of brawling last night in
the Harvard square district.
All the defendants pleaded niot
guilty and were released for a hear-
ing May 24. The charges against
them ranged frm loitering to driv-
ing an automobile recklessly.
As soon as college and municipal
officers opened the investigations
into the riot which were ordered,
the college authorities questioned
students on their activities and
Mayor Richard M. Russell ordered
the Cambridge police department
to make an independent investiga-
District Attorney Warren L. Bis-
hop of Middlesex county said in a
statement that he intended to make
a thorough investigation and pre-
sent the entire matter to the grand
"I shall not tolerate such hap-
penings wherein the lives and safe-
ty of innocent persons are placed
in jeopardy," Bishop said.
The Harvard war cry- of "Rein-
hard" swept through the famous
yard and into the nearby streets
last night. From then until almost
2 o'clock this morning the students
milled about, taking possession of
automobiles and trolley cars.
The occasion for the riot was the
disappearance of the clapper of a
bell which for years had called stu-
dents for classes. The hunt for the
clapper led to an invasion of a
Radcliffe college dormitory. Rad-
cliffe is a women's college nearby.
The students then battled police
and stormed a police station in an
attempt to rescue the arrested stu-

Relations Strained by Missive
Urging Troop Withdrawal.
TOKIO, April 22.-(/P)-The For-
eign Office today indicated that
Japan's weakened ties with the
League of Nations had been further
strained by the resolution of thel
League's Committee of Nineteen,
urging her to withdraw troops from
There appeared here a growing
sentiment to bring Japan's rela-
tions to the League to a head in
the near future.
Meanwhile, a dispatch from Har-

DeBow, Gordon Win Decision
of Members of Michigan's
Highest Tribunal.
Judge Butzel Asks Consideration
of Ethical Side of Law
at Founder's Dinner.
In a decision handed down by
the supreme court of the state of
Michigan, Ledlie A. DeBow, '33L,
and Robert D. Gordon, '33L, won
their case against Henry Y. Morri-
son, '33L, and Charles E. Jones,
'33L; thus achieving highest hohors
in the only extra-curricular activ-
ity of the law school, the junior
class case club competition. The d-
vision of the court was 4 to 3 in a
case which involved the tracing of
a deposit in a bank hopelessly in-
solvent so that the depositor can
come in as a preferred creditor.
The Hon. Nelson Sharpe of West
Branch and the Hon. Howard Wiest
of Lansing, members of the su-
preme court of the state, were the
recipients of honorary degrees at
an assembly held at 6 o'clock in
the lounge of the law club. The
degrees were conferred by Presi-
dent Alexander G. Ruthven, who.
made a shorttalk describing the
excelent record of the two eminent
Justice Butzel Speaks.
Principal speaker at the banquet
which followed was the Hon. Henry
M. Butzel, supreme court justice,
whose talk was concluded with a
plea for a more serious consider-
ation of the ethical side of the
lawyer's training. "A sense of what
is right and decent" Justice Butzel
pointed out is necessary in the
student even before he enters the
law school. In this connection he
cited one case in particular of a
young lawyer of his aquaintance
who had presented a number of
cases which he termed "shady"
and as a result had brought the
disapproval of the entire court
upon himself.
In addition to this discussion of
ethics, Justice Butzel described in
detail the day by day routine of
the supreme court's work. He stated
that he had joined the court with.
the idea that he was retiring from
active life in the profession only
to find that his work on the su-
preme tribunal was more active I
and interesting than the work
which he had left.
One of the principal speakers,
,chcduled to talk, Justice Paul
Jones of the federal court in Cleve-
land, was unable to be present.
BIodnum anIVepresents Lawyers.
Henry E. Bodinan of Detroit,
represenit g the practicing law-
yes, gave a address in which he
showed how the economnic system
of the world is now under fire at
the hands of many observers as a
result of the present financial
pandemonium. Besides this he
indicated that with many govern-
ments of Europe in a state of tur-
moil or complete overthrow, even
the institution of democracy was
being re-evaluated. "It is a world
wide tempest and all branches of
our government are being seriously
tested," he said. In the midst of
all this the legal profession and
the legal system must remain sta-
ble, he indicated.
In honor of the members of tl
low club who have maintained a
residence there for more than two

years, Regent James 0. Murphin
made a short talk piesenting the
billet, watch charms. Regent Mur-
phin quoted William W. Cook, who
said that the future of America
depends upon the legal profession.
Newly elected members of the
order of Coif arose and were ap-
plauded as their names were read
off by Paul Leidy, secretary of the.
law school, and member of Coif
Dean Henry M. Bates acted as
toastmaster and President Alexan-
der G. Ruthven sat at the speak-
ers' table.

Plan of Qualitative Disarmament
Approved Today; Stimson,
MacDonald 1l1,
Geneva, April 22 .-(/P)---The world
disarmament conference today ap-
proved the principles of qualitative
disarmament as presented by Sir
John Simon, the British foreign
secretary, and specified that it
should be achieved either by prohi-
bition 6r internationalization of
certain aggressive arms,
As adopted, the resolution was
a compromise between the British-
American position for abolition of
offensive arms and that of France,
which seeks to arm the League of
Nations. The resolution left the way
open for realizing some of the
aspects of the French idea.

k diior of Manchester Guardian
Dies as Boat Capsizes.
WINDERMERE, England, April
22. --_(AP)-E. T. Scott, editor of the
Manchester Guardian, was drowned
in Lake Windermere today,
Accompanied by his son, Richard,
Mr. Scott put out in a dinghy to
board his yacht in the lake. The
dinghy capsized and the lad clung
to the keel while his father, who
was a strong swimmer, struck out
for shore. After swiming about fifty
yards lie disappeared.
Mr. Scott was the son of the
famous C. P. Scott, managing edi-
it-r of the Guardian, who died in
his eighty-sixth year on Jan. 1 of
this year. Mr. Scott was 48 years old
and had been editor of the Guard-
ian since 1929.
After his graduation at Rugby
and Oxford and the London School
of Economics, he became private
,:ecretary and aide-de-camp to Sir
Sydney Oliver, governor of Jamaica,
and retained that post from 1907
until 1909. -
Before going to Jamaica he mar-
ried Miss Mabel Josephine Hobson,
daughter of J. A. Hobson, noted
writer on economics and sociolog-
ical subjects. Mrs. Scott's mother
was the former Florence Edgar, of
New York,
Young Scott carried out the poll-
cmos of his father, who made the
Manchester Guardian one of -the
gmeat newspapers of modern times.

Professor L. G. Vander Velde, of
the history department, and Assist-
i't to the dean of the Literary
,ollege, delivered the principle ad-
'ress. He'used as his text thestate-
ment of a man who said that col-
!ege graduates are not recogniz-
thle as such a few years after
'-i duation.
He said that there were two
aiental attributes expected of col-
lego graduates, which are often
lacking. The first is a variety of
intellectual pursuits, and the second
an open minded attitude towards
'tbjects presented to them. Most
ndergraduates, he added, are
orone to think themselves exempt
from these probabilities.
To avoid such a fate, Prof. Van-
der Velde suggests that one needs
ai wide variety of intellectual inter-
'usts, if he is to be recognized as a
college man. Attainment of this
end, he believes, can be partially
accomplished through following
some periodical book review.
