opinion, do not want to raise the

American students who, after re-
ceiving degrees in the universities of
this country, travel to Germany and
its famous schools for post-graduate
work, find that they have to alter
their conception of student life con-
siderably in order to keep up with the
pace set by the Teutons.i
In Germany students carry 25 se-
speaks of the police charging with
their clubs."
Outbreaks Of Extremists
The present rioting is outbreaks
of the extremists on the radical side,
said Professor Cross. The British
public, he stated, are a homogeneous
group, and are opposed to these ex-
tremes. He pointed out two possible
solutions of the situation. Either the
majority of the citizens of London,
he said, will refuse to contenance
any more disturbances and form
committees to deal with the situa-
tion as was done in the case of the
rail strike a few years ago, or Par-
liament will have to yield some of
its points.

No Social Life
There is no social life at all in con-
nection with their life at the univer-
sities. The only play they get is an
opportunity to attend one dance a
week that is held every Friday night
at the student houses.
With 60 per cent of the population
of Geimany out of work the only
reason for students attending the
university is to acquire a cultural ed-
ucation. Five years of work that is

Instruction is given entirely under
the Oxford system, which places class
attendance on a purely voluntary
basis supplemented by extensive out-

Cultural Training Stressed
Broad cultural training is greatly
stressed and the university freshman
is able to speak at least three lang-
uages fluently. These are usually
English, French, and German and in

Greek or both for four or five years

German students never know their
professors personally, but only by
name and sight and it is considered
a social error to speak to a professorI
in the halls or on the street unless1
he speaks first. If one wishes to
speak to a certain professor an ap-
poitment must be made, and even
then the meeting is very formal and
confined to discussion of the particu-
lar course in question. Accordingly,
there is hardly any personal feeling
between the faculty and the student

Each Division Elects Is
Co-Ed To Pep Up Local
Military Program
-Pretty enough to catch the eye
of collegian and newspaper editor
alike, six co-eds were elected spon-
,ors of divisions of the R. O. T. C.
unit at Michigan State College in
pursuance of the War Department's
effort to add sex appeal, spice, and
polo, in proportions local taste dic-
tates, to the R. O. T. C. program.
This practice, which opponents of
military training point to as evidence
that the intended purpose of the R.
O. T. C. is propagation of militaristic!
propaganda rather than practical.
military training, has been widely
criticized, even by friends of the
"preparedness" philosophy.
Pacifist critics claim that this ef-
fort of the War Department to "dress
up" the R. O. T. C. helps to create
a militaristic spirit, by subtly asso-
ciating pleasant objects with an or-
ganization which stands for extreme
nationalism and the inevitability of
war, in the minds of students. And
when, sometime in the future, bands
play and pretty girls march, young
men perhaps without good logic will
go off to war, these critics say-like
the mice in the school-boy's psycho-
logy experiment, whose mouths "wa-
ter" for food at the sound of a bell,
because of previous and repeated as-
sociation of the two things.

it was announced yesterday.
Part-time students who have no
identification cards will be permitted
to vote today upon presentation of
written notices from the office of the

have the official stamp of the dean's
office and will be forfeited at the
time of voting.
Roosevelt Vote Heavy
The Roosevelt vote appears to be
much larger than at first expected.
The Democratic nominee appears to
be getting heavy support from the
campus women, according to yester-
day's gossip. The Democrats are
handicapped by the lack of a strong
campus organization, such as the
Republicans and Socialists have.
Every precaution is being taken
by the Union and the Daily to get an
honest indication of the campus sen-
timent. The identification card sys-
tem appeared to be working satisfac-
torily yesterday and only q few at-
tempts were made to cast plural

they were yesterday, from 8 a. m. to
5 p. m. The three ballot boxes are
stationed at the Engineering arch,

brary and in Angell Hall lobby.
An unprecedented interest in the
straw vote is being taken by the Ann
Arbor townspeople, with much street
corner discussion of the possible out-
come. Interest in Detroit is also run-'
ning high.
University Symphony

Several outside trips and an ex-
tended concert tour for the Univer-
sity Symphony Orchestra this year

Mattern of the music school, con-

Professor Mattern declared. There
are still, however,' places vacant in
all instruments, he added.

Combinations of Letters,
Numbers On New Plates
LANSING, Nov. 1.-Elimination of
all automobile license plates of more
than six figures is to be accomplished
by the Michigan Department of
State in 1933 through the use of
combinations of letters and numerals,
according to an announcement from
Frank D. Fitzgerald, secretary of
\The system will reduce the amount
of steel needed for the plates and it
is estimated that the move will effect
a saving of several thousand dollars.
The lower numbered plates will be
easier to read and the letters which
will precede the numbers will be as-
signed to definite counties.

Current Expenses Takent
From Trust Funds, Tax'
Rates Are Decreased
LANSING, Nov. l.-(MINS)-Thel
joker in Governor Brucker's "He-
Cut-Our-Taxes" campaign slogan
was found when investigators hereI
learned that the State administration
under Brucker has drawn upon trust
and other special funds to meet cur-
rent expenses, rather than with for-
sight having provided for payment
of the same from taxes.t
Since this situation was made pub-'
lic Brucker has decried the disclo-
sure as campaign propaganda, claim-
ing that the administration has sim-
ply followed financial practices inl
vogue from the time of Ferris' Demo-
cratic administration. But, according
to the State's accounts, diversion of,
trust funds for payment of current
expenses is altogether new with the
present governor.
Groesbeck met shortages in current
funds by resorting to short-time bor-
rowing from special funds, though
never from trust funds. To even a
greater extent Green did the same,
but provided for repayment in an
increase in the tax levy.
It remained for Brucker to touch
trust funds, to borrow from special
funds to an unprecedented degree,
and at the same time to cut the tax
Thus at present the State is vir-
tually penniless, and indebted to
trust and special funds to the extent
of almost $12,000,000. To the Univer-
sity of Michigan alone, the State now
owes $993,341. Not even monies being
held for depositors of closed banks
have remained untouched.
Glanville Talks
On Egypt And
Old Testament
British Museum Authority
Says Bible Is Borne Out
By Historical Data
Speaking on the subject "Egypt
and the Old Testament," Mr. S. R. K.
Glanville, of the British Museum,
yesterday declared that the Old Tes-
tament must be regarded as showing
us only one side of the story of the
past. He bore out his assertion by
,resenting several instances wherein
,he Old Testament story is closely
'elated to data recently discovered
on surrounding civilizations, par-
ticularly the Egyptian.
The work going on in the field of
archeology, such as that conducted
)y the British Museum, was shown
'y Mr. Glanville to have definite
)earing on the Old Testament as an
aid in settling historical questions,
as a supplement to its social ac-
counts, and as an illustration of the
great similarity to be found in Egyp-
tian and Old Testament literature.
Mr. Glanville is termed one of the
most active of the younger genera-
tion of British archeologists. He as-
sisted in the excavations of El Am-
areh and Armant and has for some
years been engaged in Egyptological
studies. The lecture was illustrated.
A 17-year e _urt fight over a $1,100
tractor at Valparaiso, Ind., ended in
a $2,500 judgement and court costs.

VERA CRUZ, Mex., Nov. 1.--/
Dr. Salvador Mendoza, onc of the
drafters of the new civil code, an-
nounced yesterday that state author-
ities had decided to draw up a law
to establish a system of birth con-
trol in Vera Cruz.
Dr. Mendoza, an attorney, said the
various provisions of the law and
penalties for violation had not been
settled upon as yet, but that a state
birth control office would be pro-
vided to carry out the plan.
As now sketched, the attorney said,
the law would require parents wish-
ing to have children to appear before
the board. An inquiry would be made
as to the size of family, ability to
provide andieducate, and condition
of the health of parents.
Dr. Mendoza explained he was pre-
paring the birth control law of the
code with the idea of "benefiting the
proletariat and bettering the race."
The state government planned, Dr.
Mendoza said, to appoint a commit-
tee of obstetricians to discuss with
Margaret Sanger, the birth control
advocate, how best the code could
be applied to better the race.

MADISON, Wis. Nov. 1.-Slashing
the University of Wisconsin budget-
ary request for the next two years
by a total of $1,309,942, the board of
regents last week approved a recom-
mendation by Pres. Glenn Frank
which will give the university 20 per
cent less income than it required
during the 1931-1933 period.
This drastic retrenchment, which
will find reflection in severe curtail-
ment of university activities, is re-
vealed in two sources:
1. Reduction in requests from the
state totalling $960,650.
2. Reduction in estimated receipts
from fees, $349,292.
The $7,556,810 which the regents
voted to ask of the state, a decrease
of 18.5 per cent over the past bien-
nium, represents the lowest amount
requested from the legislature in
nearly a decade.
