Hill Auditorium; Final
Conference Discussion
Set For This Morning
"There are only five important men
who are living outstanding Christian
lives," said Sherwood Eddy yesterday
afternoon at Lane Hall in a speech
to the Student Christian Association
conference on the World Challenge
to Christian Leadership," and I con-
sider Mahatma Gandhi the leading
Christian of them all."
According to Mr. Eddy, in his con-
trast of Russia and India, "Gandhi,
the Hindu, has come nearer to the
Christian ideal than the rulers of any
state in the world."
In his evening address, Mr. Eddy
pointed ,out many evils of our pres-
ent social order. "One-tenth of the
people in this country received two-
thirds of our national income last
year," said he, in describing the un-
equal distribution of wealth. In Eng-
land the conditions are even more
alarming, for there one-tenth of the
people received nine-tenths of the
national income. As a result, the
producers of goods do not have the
wealth necessary to buy those prod-
ucts which lie on the shelf, unused
and unsold.
Mr. Eddy also criticized the mili-
taristic attitude of the world. "Over
seventy per cent of our national ex-
penses go to pay for wars, past and
future." Other nations are repudiat-
ing their debts, yet they are building
up and maintaining a large army at
what must be a tremendous ex-
In closing, Mr. Eddy summed up
the situation of the world today. "The
present system of individual gain is
falling and dispersing in Germany
before our very eyes. It has already
fallen in Russia. We are doomed to
the same fate, though it will come to
us last, unless we act now. The or-
ganized church has not remedied it in
the last 1900 years. What can we
as Christians do to improve the sys-
tem?" Mr. Eddy will attempt to an-
swer this problem in the concluding
address of the conference this morn-
ing when he speaks on the subject
"Dare We Be Christians?"
This final speech is scheduled for
9:30 a. m. The delegates will have
their last meal together at noon,
after which they will depart for
home. There were 125 representatives
from other colleges, besides the local
students who were attending.
Registration for the conference, re-
quiring a fee of one dollar, is still
open to those who wish to attend the
concluding address this morning. The
registration fee also included a six
month's subscription to The World
Tomorrow, a progressive weekly, of

Effect Of Tax A

With the knowledge that the 15

tion in the state dependent on a

"The total amount of taxes assessed
against property for all purposes in
any one year shall not exceed one
and one-half per cent of the assessed
valuation of said property, except

terest and principal on obligations
heretofore incurred, which sums
shall be separately assessed in all
cases; provided that this limitation[

Teachers here are discussing the
possibility of substantial salary re-
ductions and the elimination of many
teaching positions, and the students
are wondering if and to what extent
tuition may be increased.
As Shirley Smith, vice-president
and secretary of the University, has'
pointed out, the results of the new
amendment will not be felt during'
the current school year. Speculation,
however, which has for the most part'
been concerned from the first with
next year's repercussions, continues'

Murphy Plans
Using Tax Data
Collected Here
Ruthven Emphasizes No
'Model System' Under-
Going Preparation Here
The use of data relating to taxa-
tion in the state of Michigan, now
being gathered by a committee of
faculty members here, has been un-
officially requested by Mayor Frank
Murphy, of Detroit, who has an-
nounced he will present a revision
of the state tax system before the
legislature-elect when it convenes in
The committee is composed of Pro-
fessors Harcourt L. Caverly, of the
economics department, E. Blythe Sta-
son, of the law school, Thomas H.
Reed, of the political science depart-
ment, and George 'E. Carrothers, of
the school of education. It was ap-
pointed some time ago by President
Alexander G. Ruthven to take care
of the numerous questions pertain-
ing to taxation received here.
According to an account in one of
the Detroit papers last night of
Mayor Murphy's announcement, his
plan is to be based on a "model tax
system now being prepared at the
Universityof Michigan." In an in-
terview last night President Ruthven
declared that the committee hereis
engaged only in the collection and
compilation of data, which will be
available for anyone asking for it,
and is in no sense preparing a "model
tax system." The president termed
such an idea "absurd."
He was of the opinion, however,
that Mayor Murphy was aware of the
nature of the committee, and ex-
pressed the belief that the error had.

newspaper account or through the

(Special to the Daily)
POLIS, Minn., Nov. 19.-Two quick
passes set the ball in position for
Harry Newman to kick a field goal
winning for Michigan their sixth
straight conference victory, 3 to 0,
and their eighth game of their un-
defeated season. Michigan's great
quarterback, by bringing victory to
the Wolverines here this afternoon,
not only clinched an undisputed
Western Conference title, but allowed
the Maize and Blue to make a strong
bid for the Rose Bowl invitation.
Charles Bernard, Michigan's stellar
defensive center, recovered Jack
Manders' fumble on the Minnesota
24-yard line late in the second pe-
riod, paving the way for the quick
thrust that won the battle. Before
the startled Gophers could organize
cheir defense, Newman passed to
2tan. ay br a gain of ei~ht' yards,
and then went offf tackle for a first
down on the twelve yard~ line.
On the next play, Herm Ever-
nhardus was thrown for a loss of
four yards by Wells, the Northmen's
all-conference tackle. Having pre-
pared the Gopher defense for a
plunging attack, Newman whipped a
forward pass to Ted Petoskey, who
was brought to earth on the 4-yard
line for a gain of twelve yards.
Kick Barely Good
Fay was then shot at the Minne-
sota forward wall, but he was stopped
cold without appreciable gain. The
stocky halfback then dropped back
so hold the ball for a place-kick, and
Newman, booting from the fifteen-
yard line, coolly kicked the pigskin
between the uprights for the three
points which meant the success of
Michigan's season. The kicker's po-
sition was nearly in front of the
goalposts, but the ball slanted to the
right and was barely good.
The Gophers' aerial attack was
rendered ineffectual by the star de-
lense work of Everhardus and New-
man. However, Manders and Lund
kept pounding the line with fair suc-
cess throughout the game.
Offense Held
Despite this spectacular work, the
Northern Giants on the battle line
held Michigan to two first downs and
sixty-seven yards by rushing, but the
Wolves were more successful in their
air attack despite the fact that the
entire contest was played in the bit-
ter cold of seventeen degrees above
Fumbles provided an important
factor in the frigid contest, with
Minnesota fumbling eight times and
recovering but four and the Wolve-
rines profiting on four of the North-
men's miscues as well as snatching
one of their own.
Three scoring threats in the first
half were made by the Maize and
Blue, one of which was good for the
three point margin. Interceptions and
downs held the Wolves. In the third
period, Michigan had another excel-
lent chance as Williamson recovered
a fumbled punt on the Gopher
twenty, but the line held, a pass to
Petoskey failed, and Regeczi's punt
went over the goal-line, missing the
outside mark by inches.
Minnesota's scoring threats were
kept well without the real zone of
danger throughout the clean, hard-
fought contest.

Reduction of the inter-allied war
debts to the United States, in con-
formity with the policy of lowering
reparations, was advocated by Prof.
Leonard L. Watkins of the economic
depairtment, in an interview yester-
day. He pointed out, however, that it
is difficult to predict exactly what
Roosevelt will do about the problem
when he enters office, since popular
opinion in the United States seems
to be against reduction.
Postponement Marks Crisis
"The request of the debtor coun-
tries for a postponement of the De-
cember war debt payments," said
Professor Watkins, "marks another
crisis in the debt question. They
have awaited the outcome of the elec-
tions to press their case in the hope
of a more sympathetic hearing. The
answer of the United States has been
delayed pending a conference be-
tween President Hoover and Presi-
dent-Elect Roosevelt.
"Prospects for the immediate set-
tlement of the debt question are not
bright. The present controversy re-
lates only to the payment of the De-
cember installments, and we can only1

debtor countries argue with reason
that the United States has followed a
doubly inconsistent policy. We have
urged the reduction of reparations
and yet refused to apply the same
logic to the inter-allied debts, or to
recognize that our ex-allies have
neither the capacity nor the will to
pay unless they collect from Ger-
many. Moreover, the high American
tariff has made the continued pay-
ment of these debts impossible. The
piling up of gold in the debtor coun-
tries and the breakdown of the gold
standard has been one of the conse-
quences of attempts to force pay-
France, declared Professor Wat-
kins, is the most able to pay of all
the debtor countries; but popular
opinion in France is definitely set
against debt payment.
Debtors May Unite
"The danger," he said, "is that if
the United States does not quickly
realize the situation, all of these
countries may unite in defaulting
payment. The odium entailed in such
a default makes it unlikely that an
individual nation will refuse to pay,
