Hoover's Arms
Proposal Gets
ColdReception
Senate Approval Appears
Unlikely; Fish Attacks
President's Message
WASHINGTON, Jan. 11.-P)-
Congressional rejection of anotheri
recommendation by President Hoover
-with one dealing with arms em-
bargoes--..today appeared extremelyc
likely.1
The chief executive asked that the
long-pending international arms
conference be ratified or .that he be
given authority to declare munitionsl
embargoes as a means of preventing
military conflictrs..
But as the Senate foreign relations
committee was called together to;
take up the request, Chairman Borahj
recalled that the convention, signedj
in Geneva in 1925; had been put{
aside by the committee withoutj
action years ago!
From a Republican representative
-Fish of New York--came a sharp1
attack on Mr. Hoover's special mes-
sage. Ile described it as the "weak-)
est and vaguest" of all the papers the
President has sent to congress and
predicted no such legislation would1
be approved.
Secretary Stimson, in a memoran-;
dum attached to the message, men-j
tioned without calling names the un-
declared wars in South America and
in the far east as reasons for con-.
trolling shipments of arms.
Borah has opposed the convention
plan for six years. Most of the oppo-
sition has been centered on the idea
that it would not interfere with the
bigger countries but would discrim-
ihate against small nations.
Already this session the President
has been turned down on a sugges-
tion for creating a war debts com-
mission.
Robbers Hold
Up Two Gas
Stations, Flee
Thugs Escape Cordon Of
Troopers And Deputies;
Obtain $50 In Robberies
Three men who robbed two gas
stations on the North Territorial
Road Tuesday n i g h t, escaping
through a cordon of state troopers,
sheriff's deputies and city- police,
have not yet been caught.
The robbers held p the station of
Perry Doah, located near North Lake,
at 9 p. m., taking $25 from the pro-
prietor. A few minutes layr they got
$25 from Isaac Farley's gas station
at the Intersection of Whitmore Lake
and North Territorial Roads. Sheriff
Jacob Andres, who was informed of
the robberies by telephone immedi-
ately after they had occurred, called
state, Detroit, and Ypsilanti police.
He had them patrol all roads in the
district, but the robbers were not
Maught. How they escaped, whether
.hey had a car or not, and where
they went remain unknown to the
police.
Speculation at the police depart-
nient yesterday was inclined to be-
lieve that the bandits were from Ann
Arbor or Ypsilanti rather than De-
troit.
Neither Noah nor John Paddock,
attendant at the Parley station, was
able to give police a very accurate

description of the men. The man
who -held him up, Noah said, was
rather short and slender, and had a
mustache. Paddock could not give
any description,

Einstein Goes Back To School
With Jesuit Priest As Teacher

PA.9ADRhNA, Calif., JTan. 11 -(ff'-
The story of how the earth as a com-
paratively little ,eck fell out of the
line of march of the expanding uni-
verse and thus became a habitat for
human beings was the first lesson for
Prof. Albert Einstein as he returns to
school today.
This makes the Berlin scientist's
forty-seventh year in school, for
while the world of scicnce regards
him as one of its distinguished think-
ers, he smilingly chooses to regard
himself as a student.
Today's teacher, some 20 years
younger than Einstein, is the Jesuit
priest whom has won fame by ex-
pounding the Einstein theory of rela-
tivity, Abbe Gorges Le Maitre of
Universit-y of Lou vain, Belgium,
While Einstein still regarded the
universe to be static, and unclang-
ing, the Jesuit professor did some
pioneer thinking with the principle
of relativity and was perhaps the
first to declare the universe to be ex-
panding and ever-changing.
Le Maitre's discussion of the ex-
panding universe was the topic for
the day of the Journal Club at the
library of Mount Wilson observatory
here.
The abbe figures the universe and
the earth to be two billion years old.
That far back all matter in space he
says was a primordial atom, of a
temperature of millions of millions
of degrees. It started expanding, and
by observations of Astronomer Ed.-

win Riubble he-re appearsstill to be
expanding, with explosive force.
Old Mother Earth got -out of step
in the early days of the expansion.
If this had not happened it would be
an expanding mass of atoms, hence
no human life. This is explained in
scientific language by the abbe as
follows:
"While the universe is everlasting-
ly expanding since that primordial
atom burst, material in certain parts
does not have the property of passing
the equilibrium point, hence col-
lapses and condenses.
"If the density is not perfectly uni-
form, a small change in density to a
different type forms regions that do
not continuously expand, but collapse
or condense and thus form the
nebulae.".
These nebulae are island universes,
of which Dr. Hubble estimates there
are some :0,000,000 in the observable
regions of space. The earth is one of
these island universes, known as the
milky way galaxy, and this comprises
some 30,000,000 stars, many of which
are vastly greater than the sun.

Krueger An
Toll Collapse
Investigated
Senate Committee Quizzes
New York Exchange On
Losses In United States
WASHINGTON, Jan. 11. - (U) - A
true story of how American investors
got caught when the bhise of cards
by Krueger & Toll came tumbling
down was sought today by a com-
mittee of senators.
Resuming its stock market investi-
gations,' the Senate's banking com-
mittee proved primarily to fix the re-
sponsibility, if any, the New York
Stock exchange had in the flotation
of Krueger & Toll securities in this
country.
Eight witnesses, including officials
of the exchange, brokers who handled
the securities and others were called
before the committee, which, said
Chairman Norbeck, wants to know to
what extent the American investor
has been played for a "sucker."
Through it all ran the name of Ivar
Krueger, the Swedish match king
whose death in Paris was a financial
sensation. To many Americans it
meant the loss of millions.
Among those directed to appear
were loland L. Redmond, counsel for
the stock exchange; Allen Lindley,
chairman of the exchange committee
on business conduct, and Frank Alt-
schul, chairman of the exchange
stock list; Donald Durant of Lee Hig-
ginson & Co., investment bankers,
and auditors of Krueger & Toll.
The committee has employed Irv.
ing Ben Cooper, who has been asso-
ciated with Samuel Seabury in the
investigation of New York City's gov-
ernment, as its counsel to prepare
other phases of the stock market
inquiry.
Old Age Pensions, Tax
Relief Before Legislators

pensioneplan, which was advocated
by Gov. William A. Comstock in his
message to the legislature, was intro-
duced by Senator Ray Derham, Re-
publican of Iron Mountain. A maxi-
mum pension of $30 a month for per-
sons of 70 years or older, financed
through a head tax of $2 levied
against every resident of the state
who had reached the age of 21, was
provided in the bill.
A measure designed to permit those
who are two years in arrears on their
taxes to pay off the debt on a 10-
year installment plan also was intro-
duced in:the house Tuesd xy by Rep-
resentative Fred Holbeck of Long
Lake.

"The Industrialization of Soviet
Russia and Eventual Russian Com-
petition in International Markets"
will be the subject of a talk by Mr.
A. H. Hoski, '15E; in Natural' Science
Auditorium, Jan. 13, at 8,p. m.
Mr. Hoski has spent two years in a
Moscow automobile plant as superin-
tendent of the cold metal stamping
position. All interested are urged to
attend, said Prof. A. D. Gwiazdowski,
of the engineering school, who is
