Officials Will Seek Credit
Transfer From Larger
WASHINGTON, Oct. 17. - (Spe-
cial)-Announcement of the faculty
of the "depression college" at Port
Royal, Virginia, was made today by
Dr. Arthur C. C. Hill, Jr., Organzing
Secretary of the institution and orig-
inator of the idea from which it is
As so far appointed, the faculty
comprises fourteen -professors, of
whom ten have studied abroad in
universities ranging from Edinburgh
to Shanghai.
The "depression college," as pre-
viously announced, is designed to
bring together experienced teachers
who are without positions because of
the depression, and students who, be-
cause of financial stringency, are un-
able to ,continue their courses in ex-
isting institutions.
Faculty to Be Unpaid
The faculty will serve without pay,
while under-graduate fees are being
held to $250, covering all living ex-
penses as well as tuition. A library
of five thousand carefully selected
volumes, contributed by other educa-
tional institutions and interested in-
dividuals will shortly be established
in the bank building at Port Royal.
Dr. Hill said today that great in-
terest is being shown by the civic
authorities there in the development
of the college, which is to be known
as Port Royal College'. Arrangements
have been completed whereby the old
town hall will be placed at the dis-
posal of the college 'for public lec-
tures and the more'important social
gatherings. It is -planned to open this
unique institution on November 1,
while the newly appointed faculty
are expected to be in residence at
Port Royal a week earlier.
Originator is Pleased
"I am greatly encouraged at the
response which the depression college
project is receiving," said Dr. Hill to-
day. "Inquiries have been pouring in
from every section of the country,
and the co-operation of many lead-
ing educational institutions is assur-
ed. One concrete problem on which
we are now engaged is obtaining
credits for our students at other in-
Students Visit Rivera
On Detroit Excursion
The honor of a personal and ex-
tended meeting with Diego Rivera,
prominent mural painter, was the
highlight of a day in Detroit for 50
faculty and student members of the
architectural college Saturday.
In the morning one group of archi-
tects visited the new Federal Post,
Office Building to inspect the steel
construction and architectural fea-
The other, composed of decorative
design 'students inspected the collec-
tion of Pewabic Pottery owned by
Mrs. W. B. Stratton.
During the afternoon the two
groups combined. At the'Detroit Art
Institute they had a long interview
with Mr. Rivera, who holds a leading

place in the art of today. At present
Rivera is working on large murals
being done in fresco in the Pompei-
ian Court. At the completion of this
work Revera will begin the mural'
decorations in the Rockefeller Radio
City in New York. The work per-
sonifies the city in its industrial and
historical phases. Usually inaccess-
ible to the public, Rivera explained
to the group his methods, materials,
mode of composition, and subject

Religious Plot
In Mexico Is
Nipped In Bud
Pope Calls For Obediene '
By Laymen And Clergy;
Would Stop Militants
MEXICO CITY. Oct. 17.--(A')--A
plan for a widespread religious re-
bellion in the state of Jalisco was
nipped, police said today, by a raid
on a house at Guadalajara in which
two of the alleged plotters were
killed and several others escaped.
The battle lasted an hour. Police
said they seized a large quantity of
rifles, pistols, ammunition, dynamite
bombs, field equipment, a printing
press and a great deal of printed
matter urging the rebellion.
Officials of the Catholic church,
meanwhile moved with -energy to
discourage the uprising. Pope Pius
XI, it said, would not approve armed
resistance, or any departure from
Reports in Catholic circles here
said all bishops have been instructed
by the pontiff to publish pastoral let-
ters in their dioceses charging the
clergy and laymen to obey all the
civil laws.
The government recently has been
concentrating troops in the neigh-
borhood of Jalisco and while it has
not announced the purpose of the
movements, the indication has been
that preparations were being made
for possible trouble there.

New Snake Displays May Come,
But Gila Monsters Keep Place


Although a number of new snakes
were placed on exhibition Saturday
on the landings of the main stair-
-way in the University Museums
Building, their invasion did not drive
out the group of Gila monsters,
which is still on display on the top
landing. These lizards with the
queer bead-like skins are distinctive
in that they eat only in the spring,
storing up the food in their tails,
and drawing on it during the other
three seasons of the year. Their
sole food is eggs.
The group of snakes includes two
snakes common to Michigan, accord-
Preuss' Article Printed
In Norway Newspaper
An article by Lawrence Preuss, of
the Political science department, has
been reprinted in full in the Oslo,
Norway, Evening Post. The article,
which originally appeared in the July
issue of the American Journal of In-
ternational Law, deals with the dis-
pute between Norway and Denmark
concerning the sovereignty of East
Greenland, which will probably be
decided sometime in December by
the World Court. The article was
translated from English by the Nor-
wegian foreign office.

charge of museums displays. They
are the black snake, which is
abundant in the southern tier of
Michigan counties, and the hognose
snake, which live along sandy
beaches. Both of these are harmless,
as are also the bull snake, from our
western states, and the California
king snake, which is of the same
genus as the Michigan milk snake.
Another group of lizards has been
received by the museums, it was also
learned, and while not on exhibition,
they may be seen by persons inter-
ested. They will be kept alive for
only about a week. These are the
spiny lizards, brought from the South
Afican deserts.
Virtual walking cacti, they are
covered with hard spines from head
to tip of tail, in which they are

animal and vegetable, and resemble
more particularly the American
horned toad.

It was a case of every man for himself when coke was recently
discovered along the banks of the Mississippi river at St. Paul. The
"strike" was made at a point where a factory had piled up waste, and
scores of jobless persons rushed to "mine" as much fuel as possible.

Union Schedules
L ar g e Number
Of Tournaments
National Billiards Finals
Will Be Held Here In
March, Others Listed
M. W. (Dad) Williamson, director
of the Union billiard and recreation
room, has made plans for an active
year in the way of tournaments. The
first on the schedule is a ping-pong
tournament which will be held
within the next few weeks and for
which registration has already be-
At present 20 students have en-
rolled, and included in this number
are Robert Bonney, '34, last year's
winner, and Wei Lei, '32, last year's
Mr. Williamson is also promoting
contract and auction bridge tourna-
ments for which registrations are
now being taken. The idea has made
a very favorable impression on the
student body, according to officials,
who report that a large number have
already signified their intention of
taking part.
An interfraternity billiard tourney
is also being evolved and letters are
being sent to the various houses on
the campus requesting entries. It
has not been decided as yet whether
it will be an individual or team com-
petition, but that is to depend on the
wishes of the entries.
Next March the National Billiard
Tournament wil be held here under
the supervision of Mr. Williamson
and will 'be team competition. Each
team will consist of five members and
three alternates.
Concluding the schedule for this
year as formulated so far is an
alumni and faculty bridge tourna-
ment which is to be held at a date
to be announced later. Mr. William-
son said that any one wishing to
enter any of these may enroll during
the next two weeks in the recreation
room of the Union.

Yeats Termed .
Greatest Poet
First Lecturer Of Series
Is Prominent Figure In
Irish Renaissance
"Yeats is, in all probability, the
greatest living poet in the world to-
day. This is the tribute paid by
Hugh Walpole to William Butler
Yeats, who will lecture here on Nov.
10 concerning "The Irish Renais-
sance." He will speak in Hill Audi-
torium, under theauspices of the
Oratorical Association.
The new volume of poems by
Yeats, says Mr. Walpole, would com-
pare with the work of Keats or
Shelley or Swinburne.
Mr. Yeats ,a central figure in the
Irish literary renaissance, is now a
member of the Irish Free State Sen-
ate, having held the position since
the senate was set up.
He, with Lady Gregory, built' up
the famous Abbey Theatre, and
made it the center around which the
Irish renaissance revolved. The
Abbey Theatre Irish Players, in the
course of an American tour last
year, received acclamation by audi-
ences in Ann Arbor.
America has seen Mr. Yeats before.
He was here in 1923, shortly after
he had been awarded the Nobel Prize
for literature.
