Students Protest
Good Will Drive,
All Two Of Them
A mass protest meeting, scheduled
to be held in front of Alexander G.
Ruthven's office yesterday by the
National Student League, "to de-
mand immediate relief from the Uni
versity, and state funds for the needy'
and starving students on the cam-
pus," turned out to be only a
'smarty's party" for Leon Gropper
and Edward T. Cheyfitz, the twoagi-
tators, to which nobody came but
several score of curiosity seekers.
Mr. Gropper, an assistant in the
physics department and on the Uni-
versity payroll, who spoke from a
chair placed in the hall outside the
President's office, had scarcely fin-
ished telling his audience that "the
Student Good Will Fund is nothing
more than an attempt to push the
responsibility of the support of the
needy students on to the backs of us
students who have also been hit by
this crisis," when he was informed by
three very large custodians that Dr.
Ruthven wished to converse with
Mr. Gropper replied that he would
be very glad to talk to the president
when he had finished his lecture.
However, the catodians seemed to
think that the appointment withhDr.
Ruthven was more important than
the speech, so Mr. Gropper, shouting
to the crowd about violations of the
right of free speech, was escorted
into the president's private office.
Several minutes later he appeared
with the official sanction for his talk
and, morally assisted by Cheyfitz, a
junior, againi took his stand on the
chair. Following a short address to
hecklers, whom he termed "sneaks,"
he told his audience that he had
been called- "impolite" by. Dr. Ruth-
kHe then outlined a three-fold plan
for student relief:
(1) "Demand that the Board of
Regents request an appropriation
from the. state legislature, which
meets today.
(2) "All salaries o the staff above
$5000 be cut.
(3) "An appropriation from the

that Dr. Ruthven' had refused to
petition the I'.cislature for this so
-the National 'tudent League would-'
send a dle'gation ft"altsing.

Chinse Trops
PEIPING, Jan. 10.-(P)-A battle
between the Japanese ad Chinese
armies of possession of Chiumen-
kow Pass in the Great Wall of China,
one of the important gateways lead-
ing from China into the Province of
Jehol,. got under way this morning
and still was raging this afternoon.
- The Japanese advance, . in ; which
cavalry, infantry, and artillery par-
ticipated, started at dawn. The first
contact was with Chinese cavalry.
Delayed dispatches from Gen. Ho
Chu-Kuo, Chinese commander, said
that fighting still was going on late
this afternoon.
Japanese airplanes were assisting
the attackers by bombing the Chi-
nese lines. The assault column con-
tained troops of the Government of
Manchukuo as well as regular Japa-
Manchurian headquarters in Pei-
ping reported that at 5-p. m. a Chi-
nese cavalry brigade still held the
southern end of the pass and at that
point there had been as yet no con-
tact with the Japanese.

Chinese officials expected that the
full force of the Japanese drive to
gain possession of the pass would
be felt tomorrow.

With workers of the Good Will

Only preliminary reports of prog-

workers in three districts. No reports
from team captains were made yes-
"Solicitors are meeting with an en-

Emphasizing the necessity for co-

ven last night outlined a three-point
program for the modern educational
institution in a speech at the 'annual

Y:L MC. A.
"The student's mental equipment,"
Dr. Ruthven said, "should be integ-
rated into a personal religion or' phil-
osophy, which may be derived from
and expressed through practical ex-
perience in communal living, religi-
ous activity and a mental and spirit-
ual adjustment."
Dr. Ruthven pointed out that the
first point, community living, had

been entirely understressed in the
past. "A working philosophy of life,"
he said, "must represent the adjust-
ment of the individual to his environ-
ment and in man this is a social
environment. No single approach tp
the- problem of life is adequate. In
the past we have stressed training
in special skills but have failed to
develop -practical experience as the
Biasis for co-ordinated thinking on
life's essential problems."

Postpone Meeting Of
Council To T omorrow
The Interfraternity C o u n c i l
meeting, scheduled for tonight,
has been postponed until 7:30 p.
m. tomorrow. Postponement was
made necessary because of a rul-
ing which requires the announce-
ment of the meeting to be printed
in the Daily Official Bulletin on
three consecutive days before it
is held, according to Charles Jew-
ett, '34, secretary.
Backers of the movement to
permit freshmen to live in frater-
nity houses the second semester
are ready to present their argu-
ments to the Council, it was learn-
ed last night. Indications so far
indicate that the new proposal will
pass the Council with a consider-
'able margin. If such action is
taken, the Senate Committee on
Student Affairs will meet within
the next week to decide on the
question, according to those in
contact with officers of that body.

On Relief Bills,
Huey Long Reads From
Bible In Carrying On
Filibuster Against Glass
WASHINGTON, Jan. 10.-()-
Lines of demarcation between groups
that supported Franklin D. Roosevelt
opened wide today in debate on the
farm relief allotient plan in the
House and the Glass banking bill in
the Senate.
Although it is sponsored by their
party, Democrats from the cities
joined House Republicans in assail-
ing the farm relief measure. Against
the wishes of Democratic leaders,
amendments adding peanuts and
dairy products were tacked onto the
bill. Rice was also included in its.
scope, although there was no objec-
tion to'that from those in charge of
the legislation. A motion which
would kill the entire bill was pend-
ing when the House adjourned.
In the Senate, Huey Long carried
on a filibuster against the bill of the
senior Democrat from Virginia, ob-
jecting to its branch banking pro-
vision. Reading from the Bible, wav-
ing his arms and declaiming drama-
tically, the Louisiana "kingfish" di-
gressed now and then to lambast the
He was joined in his opposition to
the branch banking provisions by
Sen. Bratton-(Dem., N. M.) and Sen.
Thomas (Dem., Okla.).
As a result, the Senate laid aside
the bill late in the day and took up
a supply measure.

Spain Declares
Martial Law In
Unruly Districts
MADRID, Jan. 10.-(A)-The gov-
ernment announced tonight, that
martial law would be established in
the provinces where the anarchist
uprising still is under way.
Cabinet ministers did not. specify
which provinces would be affected,
but it was understood the action
would be taken in Seville and Va-
lencia, where sporadic outbreaks were
reported late today.
Late dispatches said that the ex-
tremist hotbeds in Barcelona, Seville,
Valencia, and Murcia, apparently
had been quieted by extreme ,pre-
cautionary measures exercised by
government forces.
Dispatches from the northern sec-
tions of the republic indicated that
all was tranquil there. Madrid-so far
has not been affected in any respect
by demonstrations.
Unofficial estimates of the casual-
ties in the fighting, which broke out
Sunday, placed the dead at 38 and
listed 100 as wounded.

mittee on Student Affairs, to succeed.

dents and professor of German, and

DETROIT, Jan. 10.-()-A joint
statement of the Michigan Crusaders
and the Michigan branch of the
Women's Organization for National
Prohibition Reform today opposed a
resolution now before the United
States Senate calling for repeal of
the Eighteenth Amendment.
In addition to the joint statement,
Mrs. Frederick M. Alger, chairman
of the Michigan branch of the wom-
en's organization, sent a telegram of
protest against the resolution to Sen-
ators James Couzens and Arthur H.
The telegram read:
"The Michigan branch of the
Women's Organization for National
Prohibition Reform believes it abso-
lutely vital to the success of our
temperance program that the con-
templated bill for repeal, with Fed-
eral control, to be ratified by .state
legislatures, should be defeated. It is
contrary to the platforms of both po-
litical parties and in direct opposi-
tion to the principles upon which
our organization was founded."
