It took Killeent wo hour: to dress
and make up for the part each day.
He had 40 pounds of makeup in his
box and used nearly every stick in
the box, he said.
The makeup was a careful study
of pictures and the death mask of the
king. Killeen's entire face was cover-
ed with sheer silk, and putty gave his
nose a thin aquiline look. Yellow,
purple, white and old-age flesh gave
the right complexion. Three rolls of
adhesive tape and special tights gave
the actor's legs the right appearance,
and his knee joints were padded to
give an effect of emaciated senility.
More Headaches
Among Fair Sex,
Says Professor
NEW YORK, Dec. 5.-Co-eds and
the fair sex in general are more sus-
ceptible to headaches than men, ac-
cording to Dr. H. A. Riley, professor
of neurology and neuro-anatomy at
the College of Physicians and Sur-
geons in New York.
Dr. Riley is making an intensive
research of the headache or migraine
in the hope of discovering a preven-
tive for it.
Causes of the headache are listed
by Dr. Riley as: "bright lights, the
smell of cooking, perfume from
plants, fatigue, indigestion, dietary
excesses, acute alcoholism, prolonged
mental strain, and previous sick-
Dwellers in large cities, students,
and those whose work is chiefly men-
tal are more liable to migraine than
open air workers.
At one time people used to drill
minute holes in the heads of suf-
ferers and insert pieces of garlic to
cure the headache. This practice
was nevernvery successful, records
disclose, and soon passed out, along
with many patients.
There are two types of headaches,
the common migraine, which is the
pain-in-the-head type and the sec-
ond type effecting thevisual field
and resulting in some cases in par-
tial blindness.
The English channel was flown by
4,311 air passengers during June,
nearly double the number carried
in June, 1931.

Autos Collide;
Two Couples
Coincidence Is Noted As
Men Recognize Each
Other As Friends'
Two couples escaped serious injury
in a week-end traffic crash here, al-
though the cars in which they were
riding were totally demolished.
John Pennefather, of Windsor,
Ont., and Eleanor Westley, his com-
panion, were both thrown several
feet from their car when it collided
with a taxicab in which Robert Haw-
ley, '35, and Margaret Beckett, '35,
were riding, at the intersection of
South University and Forest avenues.
Pennefather and Miss Westley es-I
caped injury when the door of their
car was broken loose from its hinges
and was thrown open. Dirt from the
street was ground through Penne-
father's topcoat, suitcoat, and shirt
by the impact, yet both he and Miss
Westley suffered only minor bruises
and abrasions.
After the collision Hawley recog-
nized Pennefather as the present oc-
cupant of his former home in Wind-
sor, Ont. Neither knew that the other
was in Ann Arbor or the immediate
vicinity. Hawleyinvited Pennefather
to spend the night and the next day
with him at his rooming house.
Pennefather accepted.

Officers Stop
In Capital City
2,500 Marchers Storm
Washington; Seek Re-
lief From Congress
WASHINGTON, Dec. 5.-WU')--Red-
eyed, cold and cramped from a night
spent in their trucks and automobiles,
approximately 2,500 demonstrators
today looked hopefully to court ac-
tion for an avenue of escape from
the police cordon surrounding them
on Washington's outskirts.
On three sides, strong lines of blue-
coats effectively hemmed them in,
blocking their way to the nation's
capitol, to which they had made
plans for a protest march to demand
relief from congress.
It was this police action which
members of the League of Profes-
sional Groups denounced in saying
they had retained attorneys to seek
an injunction in the District of Co-
lumbia supreme court to prevent au-
thorities from interfering with the
"constitutional" right of the visitors
to "peacefully assemble" and peti-
tion congress.
League Denies Connection
The statement was signed by Mal-
colm Cowley, John Herrmann, Rob-
ert Cantwell, Michael Gold, Charles
Rumford Walker and Felix Morrow.
Members of the league said they had
no official connection with the march
but that its leader, Herbert Benja-
min, knew of the steps they plan-
The demonstrators converged o
Washington in three caravans Sun-
day and the dawn that broke slow-
ly through heavy clouds found them
still pinned in the stretch of street
in which they were shunted on arriv-
al. Two or three hundred women
among them, however, were allowed
during the night to go to homes of
friends and sympathizers in the city
and several who became ill were sent
to hospitals.
Marchers Helpless
Stretching cramped arms and legs,
the marchers complained bitterly of
their treatment but agreed they were
as helpless before police strategy as
mice before a cat.
Police were massed ahead, behind
and through a cordon of woods on
one side. A bank leading sharply
down to the Pennsylvania railroad
yards was on the other side. Some
of the groups under police surveil-
lance had traveled hundreds of miles.
The dome of their goal-the capitol
-was in sight but it seemed unlikely
they would get there in mass for-
