Foresters To
Hear Kynoch At
First Session
His Speech To Open Twc;
Day Meeting Sponsored
By Wood Industry Group
Prof. Kynoch, of the School of
Forestry and Conservation, will be
one of the speakers at the opening
session of the National Wood In-
dustries Meeting, opening a two-day
convention at Jamestown, N. Y.,
Tuesday, Nov. 15, according to word
received yesterday.
The gathering will be held under
the auspices of the Wood Industries
Division of the American Society of'
Mechanical Engineers. Prof. Kynoch,
speaking at the research session on
Tuesday afternoon, will discuss the
urgent necessity of the wood indus-
tries' coming into line with other
industrial groups in applying science
to their industries.
Prof. Kynoch, in a recent inter-
view, pointed out that there are many
talent possibilities in the proposition
he has chosen for his talk, and also
that preparing men for wood tech-
nologists in various industries is one
of the major objectives of the local
Forestry School. At present, he stat-
ed, the wood industries are rather
backward in the use of research.
Debt Discusslon
Sought In Note
From British
WASHINGTON. Nov. 11.--A note
from Great Britain presumably seek-
ing an international debt discussion,
Greece's failure to pay and Hungary's
notice she can not meet her Decem-
ber installment today renewed the
war debt problem.
Coincident with a report from
England that a note had been sent
the United States, Sir Ronald Lind-
say, the British ambassador, conferr-
ed Thursday with Secretary Stimson.
Later both declined comment. But
shortly afterward Secretary Mills an-
nounced the action of Greece and
Hungary.
He said the treasury failed to re-
ceive Greece's payment of $227,000
of principal and $217,920 of interest
that was due Thursday. And he added
that Hungary had notified the gov-
ernment she "does not have the
necessary foreign exchange with
which to make the payment due the
United States on Dec. 15." This
amounts to $12,282 of principal and
$28,444 of interest.
Already, Esthonia, Latvia and Po-
land had given the formal 90-day no-
tice allowed under the 1928 debt
funding agreemeit that they could
not make their December payments.

University P r e s s
Issues INew Book
By Allen French
New revelations on behind-the-
scenes events of the battles of Lex-
ington and Concord bridge and in-
teresting personal information con-
cerning General Gage are contained
in a new book just issued by the Uni-
versity of Michigan Press entitled
"General Gage's Informers: New Ma-
terial upon Lexington and Concord,
Benjamin Thompson as Loyalist, and
the Treachery of Benjamin Church,
Jr." The author is Allen French,
Concord, Mass., authority on the
Revolution and author of several
other books in that field.
An interesting fact concerning the
new volume is that although it is not
the first book to appear with the Uni-
versity of Michigan Press as pub-
lisher, it is the first book of which
all of the mechanical work of print-
ing and binding was done in the new
shop of the University Press.
Hillel Players To Give
One-Act Play By Bennett
In the first of a series of monthly
entertainments to be presented by
the Hillel Foundation members will
give Arnold Bennett's one-act play,
"The Stepmother" Sunday at 8 p. m.
in their organization rooms.
Other entertainments will include
feats of amateur magic by June War-
saw, '34, a talk by John Silberman,
'35, in which he will discuss actors,
playwrights, and producers under the
head of "Contemporary Broadway."
The debt agreement, however, does
not make interest postponable.

place Jan. 1 became apparent.
Hundreds of departmental heads
and employees were wondering where
the ax will fall. The Democrats, fol-
lowing the inauguration of their tri-
umphant state and legislative can-
didates, will control not only the leg-
islative body but the state adminis-
trative board. Governor-elect William
A Comstock will have as members of
his cabinet John K. Stack, auditor-
general, Patrick H. O'Brien, attorney
general, and Theodore I. Fry, state
treasurer.
Frank D. Fitzgerald, secretary of
state, the only Republican survivor
of Tuesday's Democratic invasion,
will have two hold-over officers as
political allies on the board. They
are Grover C. Dillman, highway com-
missioner, and Webster H. Pearce,
superintendent of public instruction.
The latter two do not come up for
re-election until next spring.
Error Reduces Lead
Discovery of an error in the re-
turns tabulated from Genesee county
today had lopped 4,049 votes off the
lead of Secretary of State Fitzgerald
in his race for re-election against
B. J. Abbott, Democrat. The Repub-

offices.
The Genesee county returns in the
first tabulation had given Fitzgerald
32,670 votes and Abbott 33,498. The
correction reduced Fitzgerald's vote
to 28,631. The correction made the
total for 3,385 precincts out of 3,417:
Fitzgerald, 750,140; Abbott, 746,645.
The Democratic legislature -- the
first in 50 years-will convene Jan. 4.
With the party which was pledged to
repeal of the state bone dry constitu-
tional clause and which supported,
nationally, a platform for immediate
modification of the Volstead act, in
complete control, it is expected one
of the first legislative acts will be
repeal or modification of the state
prohibition enforcement law.
Plans "Drastic Economy"
Comstock has not announced his
program except to say drastic econ-
omy will be introduced in state gov-
ernment. Under the heading the leg-
islature may be asked to consolidate
or abolish many departments and
commissions.
When 0. B. Fuller, auditor gen-
eral, leaves office Jan. 1 an institu-
tion in state affairs will pass. He is
serving his twelfth term.
