Makes Address On Eve Of
Tenth Anniversary Of

MILAN, Italy, Oct. 25.-()-Pre-
mier Benito Mussolini told half a
million persons gathered in a great
public square here today that Italy
was ready to fight anyone who at-
tempts to prevent her from regain-
ing the leadership of civilization
whichnwas ancient Rome's.
He inaugurated the new auto-stra-
da between Turin and Milan, arriv-
ing here exactly on the appointed
minute, although tens of thousands
of country folk halted his automo-
bile at Novara.
Crowd Blocks Road
A crowd blocked the road and re-
fused to budge until the Premier
spoke. After a half hour's delay he
personally appealed to the crowd be-
fore it made a path for his automo-
bile caravan.
His address here was made on the
eve of the tenth anniversary of the
Fascist triumph in Rome which has
been preceded by preliminary cele-
brations most of this month. He was
cheered enthusiastically by citizens
of this city which formerly was his
It was at a Milan meeting 10 years

of industrial plants in Turin earlier
today and crowds lined the streets
to bid him farewell when he left
Attends Ossuary Opening
Before leaving he attended the
opening of the new ossuary for World

He gave a lesson in brevity to long-
winded speakers at the inauguration

high, among hills 40 miles from Tur-
The first speaker addressed the
crowd 15 minutes and the second
orator was frequently interrupted by
his audience. The Premier, who came
next, said only:
"I congratulate the builders and
workers, everyone who did this, but
words serve nothing where there are
facts. Now watch this-."
He pressed a button which sent a
column of water shooting hundreds
of feet in the air from an adjacent
hill and opened a valve pip which

refused them all," he said.

Symphony Gets

Moore Calls Performance
Of Boston Orchestra
Finest Ever Heard Here

Four thousand people nearly filled
Hill Auditorium last night to give the
Boston Symphony Orchestra a long
ovation in its second concert here in
two years.
The .program, opening the 1932-33
Choral Union Concert Series, was
characterized by Earl V. Moore, mu-
sicalrdirector, as "the finest that has
ever been heard in Ann Arbor, even
finer than the performance of the
same orchestra last year."
In robvious agreement with Mr.
Moore, the audience gave Dr. Serge
Koussevitzky and his 110 musicians
applause almost unprecedented for
an orchestra concert in Hill Audi-
torium. The Tschaikovsky symphony
was especially appreciated.
Mr. Moore assigned three reasons
to the brilliance of the performance:
the quality of the music, the fact that
each individual chord was perfect,
and the long association of the mu-
sicians with the orchestra.
"The musicians of the Boston Sym-
phony," he said, "no longer need to
bother about technique; that is a
worry for amateurs. Instead, they can
concentrate all their attention upon
exact tone shading, and responsive-
ness to Dr. Koussevitzky, so that a
perfect interpretation of the number
may be given."
Extreme gratification at the size
of the orchestra was expressed after
the concert by Pres. Charles A. Sink
of the music school. "Orders for
tickets have been pouring in all day,"
he said, "and the number present to-
night, in.view of the financial situa-
tion, was truly surprising.
"I consider that the response to-
night was sufficient reward for the
effort we put into securing a fine
program for this year's concert
Western Colleges
To Play Football
With Teams Of 12
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Oct. 25.-(P)
-Football enthusiasts have talked
about 12-man teams, but it remains
for Occidental College of Eagle Rock
and the Santa Barbara State grid-
sters to put the plan in vogue.
Announcement wasmade today
that each team will put 12 men on
the field when they meet at the Rose
Bowl, Pasadena, on the night of Nov.
The 12th player will be termed a
field general. On the offense he will
go into a huddle with the other 11
players to decide what plays will be
employed. When the formation moves
forward he will drop back with the
referee to see just how his brainchild
works out and to detect weaknesses
of the opposition.
On defense, he will stand with the
head linesman, taking no active part
in the functions of his team. The
plan is to have the field general
dressed in a distinguishing uniform.
The step is considered by Occiden-
tal athletic authorities as another in
their plan to give the game back to

throughout the country, he prefers
to sleep in his little cart which is
slightly larger than the size of a cot.
Jack is 68 years old and a bachelor.
It is not because he dislikes those
of the opposite sex that he has re-
mained a bachelor, he claims, but
rather because he likes them too well
and has never been able to make up
his mind.
Jack at one time ran a newspaper
in Chicago. In regard to the profes-
sion, he said, "The newspaper profes-
sion is one that enables those that
follow it to come into contact with all
classes of people in all sorts of condi-
tions. It is a very worthwhile life
The making of his little fortune
was due to the fact he saved most
of what he has earned. He has aver-
aged a net income of $1,000 a year
since he started his unique business
in which, he claims, he is the great-
est in the country. He inherited $20,-
000 during his life from his mother
and father."
He has never been sick a day in his
life, he claims, and has always been
happy. When asked what he intend-
ed to do with the wealth that he has
amassed, he said that it was a per-
sonal matter and never has nor never
will be answered as long as he is
During the course of his travels, he
has met several presidents, many
representatives of Congress and other
men well-known in this country.

Plans are already made for the
first year men to gather at the pep
meeting on Friday night and to de-
fend their prestige against any soph-

"Only men with 'pots' on will be

said Remias, "and all upper classmen

Lieutenants to work under Remias
are Marvin Chapman and George

thought the prospects of winning the
games were, Chapman replied, "We

Much enthusiasm was shown over
the election of captain. Boos and cat-
calls were made by opposing factions
as each man was nominated. After
the results were announced, however,'
the first year men got together and
gave their newly elected leader a
"big hand." Remias, in return, ap-
pointed his two opponents for cap-
tain as lieutenants.
According to statements by the
captain and lieutenants, the first
year men are going to start business
Friday. "We are going to meet at the
pep meeting," Remias said, "and all
freshmen must come with imple-
ments of warfare. There isn't going
to be any fooling this year."
The meeting was addressed by
Prof. John Muyskens who charged
the freshmen with their duties. He
explained to them the benefits of
such things as class games, and
warned them that they had "better
be prepared for the class of '35."

Members of the boxing and fenc-
ing teams gave exhibition matches
for the freshmen at the beginning of
the meeting.
Sophomores will meet at the Union
at 8 p. m. tomorrow to elect their
captain. Prof. John L. Brumm will
address the group.

As a preliminary to the all-campus
student and faculty straw vote to
be conducted next Tuesday and Wed-
nesday by the Union and The Daily,
the city staff of The Daily is this
week completing a poll of the 150
Ann Arbor personages listed in the
1932-33 edition of "Who's Who in
America," the final result to be an-
nounced Friday morning.
The persons questioned in the
"Who's Who" poll are being asked
to state their choices on the presi-
dency and the governorship and their
opinions on the matters of prohibi-
tion repeal and the immediate cash
payment of the soldiers' bonus.
68 Replies Received
Up to today, 68 persons had been
reached in the poll, 66 stating presi-
dential preferences, and 53 giving
their choices for the office of gov-
ernor. All but one of the persons in-
terviewed have repliedon the prohi-
bition and bonus questions. The al-
campus vote on Tuesday and Wed-
nesday, however, will touch only on
the presidency.
Ann Arbor has one of the largest
percentages of persons listed in
"Who's Who" among the cities of the
country. Most of the celebrities are
members of the University faculty.

Two polls have been taken in Ann
Arbor, one by the Literary Digest as
a part of its nation-wide straw vote,
the other by the Washtenaw Veteran,
local organ of the Veterans of For-

Disarmament Plan Given
By Japan, Details Secret
TOKIO, Oct. 25.-WP)-A new dis-
armament plan is to be advanced by
the Japanese representative when the
disarmament conference resumes
next February at Geneva, the Asso-
ciated Press learned today.
Its details are a closely guarded
secret, and not even an idea of its
general character was offered. A high
official, said, however, that the plan
will embrace all naval categories and
will be sufficiently complete to stand
alongside the proposals of President
Hoover and Stanley Baldwin of Great
It has not been decided whether
the plan will be made public before

the disarmament conference resumes.

Police Agree
To econsider
Edict On Stand
Socialists Await VerdictI
From Commission; Hope1
For Re-Opening
In their fight for the re-opening
of the radical literature stand, the{
Michigan Socialist Club has succeed-
ed in having the matter brought upt
for reconsideration by the Policek
Commission, a member of the com-
mittee told The Daily last night.-
The club is waiting for a decision-
from the Police Commission before
taking any further steps in the mat-t
ter. The question of whether or not
the erection of the stand last Thurs-
day was a violation of the city ordi-
nance wil be decided by the commis-t
sion, the member stated.
In the event of a decision against
the Socialists, the club feels that it
has sufficient grounds to bring the
case up for hearing, not with a pur-
pose to recover the money invested in
the stand, but to secure its re-open-
ing, the member said.
Pres. Alexander G. Ruthven, whenj
consulted on the matter yesterday
stated that, "the matter is outside
the jurisdiction of the University, in-
volving as it does, a city ordinance."1
But in his opinion, "no question
should arise as to the characer of the
literature on sale, as I understand it,
since it represents. a line of think-
ing on social problems."
Dr. Ruthven stood by the state-
ment of Shirley Smith, secretary ofj
the University, who told a member
of the stand committee day before
yesterday that there was no possibil-
ity of the stand being opened on the
campus side of North University ave-
nue, as there was a ruling against the!
