Expect Immediate Action
On Prohibition, Farm

Republican Group May
Support Roosevelt To
Give Democrats Control
WASHINGTON, Dec. 3.-(R)-Pro-
hibition and farm relief dominated
busy conferences on capitol hill in
preparation for the opening on Mon-
day of the final session of the elec-
tion-riddled 72nd Congress.
Ready to take full command of
the government on March 4, the
Democrats in both the House and
Senate assumed leadership and
pointed to the prohibition and agri-
cultural problems with a view to dis-
posing of these as well as balancing
the budget to make unnecessary a
special session next spring.
In an unprecedented m o v e,
Speaker Garner will go beyond the
opening formalities on Monday and
smash head-on into the issue of re-
peal of the Eighteenth Amendment
with a vote scheduled before the day
The Senate also is confronted
forthwith by the repeal question but
leaders tentatively agreed today to
refer the problem to the judiciary
committee pending action by the
House. Emissaries from President-
elect Roosevelt have brought plans
for a tax on legalized beer and for
farm relief for enactment at the dy-
ing short session of the Hoover ad-
ministration and both of these prob-
lems will be tackled by the Demo-
cratic House first.
Senate Republican independents
who supported Gov. Roosevelt tn the
campaign have promised co-opera-
tion and the Democrats are assured
in the Senate also of a working ma-
jority although the Republicans will
retain actual control of the Senate
President Hoover went ahead to-
day on his own course and ideas for
the short session in runding out his
annual message and the special bud-
get message which will be presented
probably on Tuesday and Wednes-

90 Directors
Attend Music
Meetings Here
Falcone Brothers Speak
On Brass And Woodwind
More than 90 instrumental music
directors attended the first state-
wide clinic of instrumental music
held here Friday and Saturday, it
was disclosed by Ada Bicking, state
director of music education, in an
interview immediately following the
close of the conference.
"The experiment was a success,"
she stated, "and we expect now that
it will be a regular annual confer-
ence. This is the first time that di-
rectors of instrumental music from
the whole state have been able to
meet in conference and discuss mat-
ters pertaining to this branch of
music education. We have received an
invitation from Mr. Sink" (Pres.
Charles A. Sink of the music school)
"to return here next year."
In the morning session yesterday
the certification of music teachers
was discussed in an effort to work
out a jury basis of examination in
place of the usual written quiz.
The morning session also included
two talks: "The Playing of Brass
Instruments," by Prof. Leonard Fal-
cone, director of the Michigan State
College Band, and "The Woodwind
Choir," by Prof. Nicholas Falcone,
director of the Varsity Band.
In the afternoon a discussion of
band music was held under the
chairmanship of W. W. Norton of
Flint. Dr. Joseph Maddy of the ex-
tension division announced and de-
scribed numbers which have been se-
lected by the instrumental commit-
tee of the National Music Super-

of the. numbers discussed were then
played through by the Varsity Band.

New Premier
Approved By
General Von Schleicher
Draws Up Cabinet List;
Two Openings Left
Reappoints Many Of
Von Papen Ministry
Posts Of Agriculture And
Economics Still Under
Official Consideration
BERLIN, Dec. 3.-(P)-Gen. Kurt
von Schleicher succeeded today in
drawing up a virtually complete cabi-
net list and President von Hinden-'
berg affixed his signature to the gen-
eral's appointment as chancellor of
the Reich.
The president approved a ministry
in which the portfolios of agriculture
and economics were, for the time be-
ing, left blank.
In the resigned cabinet of Franz
von Papen, the minister of agricul-
ture was Baron Friedrich Edler von
Braun, and the post of economics
was held by Dr. Hermann Warm-
bold. Apparently these two men
could not agree on a common policy,
thus making them unavailable, as
Chancellor von Schleicher was deter-
mined to have a ministry which
would be able to carry on the govern-t
ment with complete unity. Negotia-
tions concerning these two posts will'
continue tomorrow.
Following are the appointments'
signed by the president: chancellor1
-Kurt von Schleicher; foreign af-
fairs-Baron Konstantin von Neu-'
rath; interior-FranzBracht; finance
-Count Lutz Schwerin von Krosigk;:
defense, Kurt von Shleicher; justice]
-Franz Guertner; transportation
and posts -Baron Eltz von Rueben-
ach; labor-Dr. Friedrich Syrup;
minister without portfplio-HJohan-
nes Popitz.
With the exception of Dr. Syrup,
all these men were in the resigned
von Papen ministry. Dr. Bracht wasr
a minister without portfolio in the
cabinet and he succeeds to the place
formerly held by Baron Wilhelm von
Gayl. Others in the von Papen min-
istry who are dropped are von Papen
himself and Hugo Schaeffer, who was
minister of labor.
The reappointment of Baron von
Neurath as foreign minister was'
taken as an indication of an un-
broken policy so far as international'
relations are concerned.
Hall Explains g
Japanese Aim
Large Population Forces
Natives To Seek Homes
In Foreign Provinces
A clear picture of past and present
day Japan with reasons for recent
expansion was discussed last night
by Prof. Robert B. Hall of the Geo-
graphy department at the regular1
meeting of the Cosmopolitan Club.
Professor Hall explained that be-
fore western powers had invaded the
country, the population, due to semi-
religious forces and limited farming

area, had not increased. However,
during the last half century the pop-
ulation has increased with amazing
rapidity, fearing that the west was
going to colonize them as they had
done in India. The change of popu-
lation is primarily due to birth rate
and the abolition of the semi-reli-
gious laws.
The Japanese were faced with a
problem of expansion, Professor Hall
said. Due to the country's poor re-
sources, manufacturing failed to bring
about the desired effect. The coun-
try was forced to migrate. Expan-
sion in Hawaii, Brazil and Korea
failed. Manchuria has been the most
satisfactory of all the other coun-
tries. However, the situation is not
entirely favorable to the Japanese,
Professor Hall concluded. The cli-
mate is too cold and the Chinese
competition is too strong to complete-
ly solve Japan's problem.

Prison Morale Is Argued
As Sufficient Cause For
Release Of Group
DETROIT, Dec. 3.-(P)-Echoes of
the thunder of smuggled guns with
which four drug-crazed convicts slew
a country doctor, a trusty and them-
selves in the Marquette Prison riot
which made headlines in August,
1931, were heard again Saturday.
The guns that barked on that
sunny summer afternoon were to
have liberated four men from life
terms in prison. Though they sent
the four from the prison to the grave,
they may yet gain four other men
commutation of life sentences, 'as
Gov. Brucker is seriously considering
clemency for the inmates of the
prison who became the heroes of the
Gov. Brucker's record in regard to
prisoners has been unique. He has
gone through his entire term without
changing the judgments of the judges
and juries who have tried and sen-
tenced convicted men.
He is known to be considering
carefully the facts as they have been
presented to him in the instance of
these men. He will not discuss the
case until he has made up his mind.
But 'if he does commutate their
sentences, it will not be a violation of
his rigid rule, but a recognition of it.
If he acts at all it will be to pay
recognition to these prisoners and
their services on behalf of law and
order. By cutting their sentences so
that they will have at least a hope
of eventual freedom, it is argued, he
will be aiding prison wardens
throughout the state in maintaining
prison morale.
The four are Leo Bolger, Harry
Ambs, Harry W. Hill and another
life termer whose name is being
withheld. In the very secrecy sur-
rounding the identity of the fourth
convict there is a dark reminder of
life lived as convicts live it behind
their stone walls. This man who dis-
closed the conspiracy to the prison
officials, that it might be traced to
its sources and all the conspirators
found, will be transferred to some
other prison before commutation ever
is extended to him. Were he to re-
main in Marquette he would die at
the hands of fellow-inmates, die be-
cause he "told."

Would Retard Recovery-Remer

Juvenile Delinquency Rates
Deplored By Carr In Radio Talk

One child out of every hundred
joins the "junior ranks of crookdom"
every year, according to Prof. Lowell
J. Carr of the sociology department.
If the underworld were to set up
recruiting booths on the corners of
streets, he said, and announce that
one per cent of the children of the
country were to be taken into their
ranks, public opinion would force

pointed out in his talk, which was
broadcast last night over the facili-
ties of the University Broadcasting
Service from WJR, juvenile delin-
quency has come in for more scrutiny
than formerly. "Psychology, psychia-
try, sociology have all combined to
show us that behavior doesn't just
happen, that it is caused by some-
thing," he said.
