Battle At St. Paul
ST PAUL, Minn., Jan. 20.-()-
Minnesota was successful in its first
defense of the Big Ten hockey
championship tonight, frustrating a
vicious Michigan charge for a 2-1
triumph in two overtime periods.-
A flying puck, lifted from just
within center ice by Zieske's stick in
the second extra period, sailed over
the defender's head and bounced
over the goal marker's club for the
winning counter. Despite hard at-
tacking, only nine penalties were
called.
Sherf scored Michigan's lone goal
after 16 minutes of play in the third
period. That tied the score, Munns
having made good a pass from Gray
after 14 minutes of play in the sec-
ond period.
Jewell, Michigan goalie, put in a
slightly harder night thah Clausen,
the Minnesota goal marker. Jewell
made 36 stops to Clausen's 30.
Zieske's winning goal came after
6%r minutes of play in the second
overtime period, just when it seem-
ed the game would end in a 1-1 tie.

Plan To Start Collection
Of Soph Dues Next Week
Collection of sophomore dues in
the literary college will begin next
week, John C. Healey, '35, class
treasurer, announcedi yesterday. A
-new plan is being tried this year in
reducing the dues to 50 cents for a.
limited time, after which they will
again be $1,. he said.
After examinations desks will be
placed in the main lobby of Angell
Hall at specified times where dues
may be paid, and a finance commit-
tee will be appointed to collect them.
Joseph P. Lackey, '35, president of
the class, said that all committees
will be appointed within the next
few days before examinations.
County Expenses Rise
To $11,000 In December
Records compiled in the office of
County Clerk Harry H. Atwell show
that operating expenses of Wash-
tenaw county for the month of De-
cember totaled $11,210.35.
This compares with $9,987.51 spent

during November, but it is explained
that the final month of the year
always sees the submittal of nu-
merous bills incurred only as the
year closes. Insurance premiums
must be met in December, it was
said.

With Fraternity Gifts
The Good Will fund passed the

tions.
No definite figures will be avail-
able until this afternoon, but In-
glis declared last night that
money already collected or pled-
ed by the fraternities would place
the fund total above $2,000. Final
reports for all divisions of the

China Warned
Against Results
Of Jehol Raid
Uchida Pleads 'Fairness
And Justice' Of Stand
On Manchuokuo Issue
WASHINGTON, Jan. 20.-P)--The
Japanese minister of foreign affairs,
Count Uchida, tonight issued a warn-
ing to "the government and people of
China against unfortunate eventuali-
ties that nmay arise" from what he
described as an invasion of Jehol
province by Chinese troops and "a
positive anti-Japanese movement."
The minister spoke in the Japanese
diet, and the text of his remarks was
made public by the embassy here.
"I am convinced that in view of
the auspicious growth of Manchou
kuo and the universal advantage
thereby accruing to all peoples of the
world," he said, "the League of Na-
tions and governments of the powers
will eventually recognize the fairness
and justice of the position we have
taken with regard to Manchuokuo.
"Nor have I any doubt that in the
end the Chinese themselves will be
brought to regard the mutual aid
and co-operation between Japan,
China, and Manchuokuo, each as an
independent state, to be the best
means of insuring peace in the
Orient.
"I may add at this point a few
words with reference to Jehol. Par-
ticularly in the light of the circum-
stances leading to the establishment
of Manchuokuo, it is evident that the
province of Jehol constitutes an in-
tegral part of the new state.
"However, maneuvers for creating
disturbances in that province have of
late been notoriously rife and some
contingents of regular troops under
Chang Hsueh-Liang have crossed the
border into the province.
"While the so-called Jehol ques-
tion is a purely domestic affair for
Manchuokuo, Japan is of course
bound by recent protocols to join
forces with that country in the task
of maintaining peace and order
throughout its territory. The ques-
tion, therefore, in view of this treaty
obligation, is a matter of serious con-
cern to the government of Japan.
"As for China, political' confusion
in that country continues as ever,
while the anti-Japanese movement
shows no signs of abatement.

Malcolm Hopes To Raise
At Least $5,000 To Add

A final drive to bring the Com-
munity fund up to the $62,938 goal
set for this year will be made Tues-
day, Wednesday, andiThursday of
next week. The fund is now slightly
above $50,000 and at least $5,000, it
is hoped by fund directors, will be
raised during the three day period.
J. K. Malcolm will head the forces
engaged in the drive and five solici-
tors from each of the boards of the
constituent agencies are expected to
help,
A list of persons who have not
been approached or who stated that
they would be able to give some-
thing later is being compiled for
the convenience of the group. All
transients seen seeking help on Ann
Arbor streets will be referred to fund

Plant Cost To.
Be $350,000
SaysCaswell
Water Department Head
Endeavors To Clarify
Confusion Over Plan
Huron Filtration Is
Preferable, He Says
Insufficient Supply For
Future, It Is Agreed;
Loan Is Advised
Harrison Caswell, manager of the
Ann Arbor water department, en-
deavored to clarify an existing con-
fusion concerning the cost and meth-
od of raising the necessary money
for a filtration plant at the Huron
River yesterday afternoon.
Referring to the report of the
water board, which made an exhaus-
t ive study of the present water sit-
uation, he asserted that the plant's
cost, everything included, would be
only $335,000 and not $750,000, as
was charged by the plan's opponents
at a meeting of the Taxpayers'
League last night.
The board's report listed the fol-
lowing items of expense:
Filtration plant........$260,000
Cast-iron main from
plant to reservoir ......40,000
Cast-iron main from.
reservoir into west side
of city...............35,000
Total.. ...........$335,000
"At the present time," Mr. Caswell
said, "we are getting our water from
the Barton Dam well, the Montgom-
ery well, and the Steere Farm. If
Ann Arbor residents want soft water
it will be necessary to build a water
softener plant and then bring the
water from these wells 'together at
the plant. This would cost more
than erecting a filtering plant at the
river. Thus from a purely economic
standpoint the river plant is prefer-
able.
Suggests R. F. C. Loan
The money necessary for the pro-
ject, Caswell explained, could be bor-
rowed from the R. F. C. or a bond
issue could be floated. "It would be
possible to pay off on the bonds out
of the present revenue derived by the
department, and there would be
neither an increase in water rates
nor in taxes," he said.
The present water supply of Ann
Arbor, it is generally agreed, is not
sufficient for the future. In order
to get a greater supply it is neces-
sary either to go to the Huron River,
which is expected to prove perma-
nently adequate, or to seek more wells
in outlying parts of the country. Cas-
well listed the following expenditures
which would be necessary in the
latter case:
Survey Needed
"First," he said, "we would have
to make a survey to find the water.
Secondly, we would have to get con-
trol of this water by buying the land,
-agreements with the owners, and
whatever other methods are possible.
Third, we would have to lay new pipe
lines to the new wells. Finally, we
might get into difficult damage suits
because of draining away farmers'
water. And then we would have
simply the same kind of water we
are getting now.
"To get soft water, it would then
be necessary to bring these incoming
streams together at some spot and
there erect, at additional expense, a
softening plant."

Mr. Caswell said that he did not
particularly care which the people
wanted to do, for it was his func-
tion to carry out the water board's
work, whatever it was.'

Britain, U. S.
To Hold Debt
ParleySoon
Hoover, Roosevelt Meet
Together For An Hour,
Decide On Negotiations
Other Debtors May
Desire To Confer
Stimson Asked To Get In
Touch With Ambassador
To Arrange Details
WASHINGTON, Jan. 30.-(P)-A
new deal, readjusting the tangled and
long-troublesome array of World War
debts, seemed a distinct probability
tonight after President Hoover and
President-Elect Roosevelt agreed to
open early debt negotiations with
Great Britain.
Sitting down together within the
White House for an hour and a half,
they decided that Secretary Henry
Stimson should arrange at once for
the reception of British representa-
tives immediately after March 4, to
discuss not only war debts, but also
"ways and means for improving the
world situation."
Secretary Stimson later called Sir
Ronald Lindsay, the British ambassa-
dor, to the State Department and
presumably communicated to him the
result of the White House conversa-
ti on.
Issue Joint Statement
In a formal joint statement the
President and his successor spoke
only of a "discussion of the debts."
But there was a general assumption
in the capital tonight that this meant
not only a re-alignment of Great
Britain's obligations, but also that
other debtors immediately would pe-
tition for similar treatment.
The Hoover-Roosevelt agreement
was reached at the very moment
when the Senate chamber echoed
with a scathing speech by Sen. Ar-
.thur R. Robinson, Irndependent Re-
publican, terming France a "thorough
ingrate" for its debt default.
World-wide reaction to the White
House meeting was immediate. In
responsible British political quarters
the move was termed "the best news
in weeks."
An official spokesman in France
declared before the Hoover-Roosevelt
move was announced that France
was ready to negotiate at the earliest
possible moment concerning its debt,
now in default. Later it was said no
dissatisfaction was expressed in offi-
cial comment over the fact that the
Paris government was not mentioned
in the announcement made here.
In Belgium, Hungary, Poland and
other defaulting nations as well as
Italy, Czechoslovakia and other payee
countries, the new American move
was taken under immediate consid-
eration. In Germany, an official
spokesman declared that that nation
"welcomes everything that will hast-
en a solution of the debts question."
The President and President-Elect,
in their second post-election meeting
today, spoke not entirely of debt and
world economics. In touching upon
the tense Sino-Japanese situation,
informed quarters reported Mr.
Roosevelt as expressing a belief that
the accord between the two adminis-
trations on foreign treaties would
have a healthy effect.

Licenses For Week-End,
Of Annual Dance
Two hundred twelve J-Hop tickets,
had been sold late last night, accord-,
ing to a count by Robert Saltzstein,1
'34, chairman of the ticket commit-
tee. .
"We consider this sale a very fa-
vorable sign," Saltzstein said, "in-J
asmuch as this number is practicallyt
a third of the total number of tickets
which will be sold for the dance. The
tickets have been on sale for only.
four days and if they keep selling at
the same rate they will be gone by
the end of next week."
The sale will be limited to 700, he
pointed out. The tickets are now be-
ing sold at the Parrot, Slater's,
Wahr's, the Union, the Hut, the Den,
and by committeemen.
The automobile ban will be lifted
for students who apply for permitsJ
for the J-Hop week-end it was an-
nounced yesterday by Walter B. Rea,
assistant tothe dean of students. The
period will extend from noon Friday,
Feb. 10, to 8 p. m. Monday, Feb. 13.
The suspension of the ban is sub-
ject to the following restrictions, ac-1
cording to Mr. Rea. Cards must be
secured at Room 2, University Hall,
and sent home for parents' signa-
tures and correct license numbers of
cars to be used. If the cards are re-
turned to Mr. Rea's office prior to
Feb. 10 driving permits will be is-
sued.
Cars must not be brought into
town before Friday noon and must
be driven out before 8 a. m. Monday.
No extensions of this arrangement
will be granted, Mr. Rea said.

In Quadrangular 'Wire'
Rifle Match
Approximately 22 members of the
faculty took part in what is tech-
nically called a wire rifle shoot with
the Universities of Illinois, Minne-
sota, and Purdue at the Reserve Of-
ficers' Training Corps headquarters
Thursday evening.
Illinois' total score for the meet
was 1638, while that of the local
competitiors was 1654, giving the first
match to Michigan's representatives.
Reports from the two other schools
taking part have not been received
yet, according to Capt. C. A. Powell.
The meets are conducted in this
manner by the competing groups
computing their own scores and ex-
changing them afterward by mail.
Officials say that it is often used in
matches of this type.
Prof. Philip E. Bursley, of the
French department, was individual

high scorer for the evening; Prof.
A. D. Moore, of the electrical en-
gineering department, was second;

Reinstatement
For Freshmen
Scarcity Of Jobs Causes
Administrative Board To
Take Favorable Action
Scarcity of jobs has led the liter-
ary college to continue a plan, start-
ed last year, which will enable cer-
tain freshmen with very low grades
to be reinstated at once, instead of
having to withdraw, it was stated
yesterday by Assistant Dean Wilfred
R. Humphreys.
The action was taken at a meet-
ing of the college administrative
board on Thursday afternoon, it was
learned.
A statement by Dean Humphreys
relative to the action read, in part:
"(The plan was) adopted last year
to permit a selected number of fresh-
men who make very low records in
the first semester, and who would
ordinarily be required to withdraw
for at least one semester, to be rein-
stated .at once, and so to continue
upon this second and final trial in
the second semester."
"With conditions as they are,"
commented the Dean, "you can't tell
a student to leave school and get a
job, and to apply for reinstatement
later. Such action would be unfair,
in consideration of the scarcity of
positions."

French's claims that Mimes owes
it $750, according to George Burke,
University attorney, in whose hands
the case has been placed by the
Union. The amolt for which the.
Union is willing to settle, Mr. Burke
said yesterday, is $450. Mr. Burke also
pointed out that a suit can not be
started in a Federal court for less
than $3,000.
Comedy Club, student dramatic or.
ganization, has been refused the right
to produce Samuel French plays since
this controversy started, according
to letters on file in the office of Wal-
ter B. Rea, assistant to the dean of
students.
Late in October Comedy Club wrote
the publishing house requesting in-
formation on available plays. One of
the letters on file in Mr. Rea's office
is the answer to this request, dated
Nov. 2, 'stating that until the royalty
on "Meet the Prince"-produced 1y
Comedy Club last year-is paid, no
more plays will be available.
"Not Interested"
The reply continued, "To be frank
with you, we are not interested in
doing business with any group in the
University of Michigan while the
Mimes matter is pending, and only
answer inquiries as a matter of
courtesy."
Mr. Rea, in his capacity as audi-
tor of student organizations, sent a
check paying for the royalty and in
the acknowledgment of the check-
also on file in Mr. Rea's office-the
company said, "The University of
Michigan Mimes is indebted to us in
a considerable sum because of illegal
use of plays in our lists. Suit will be

History Of Controversy
The history of the Mimes contro-
versy as outlined by Paul Buckley,
manager of the Union, began several
years ago when requests were sent
to the publishing house for royalty
prices on various plays in the French
lists. The company gave the quota-
tions and during the course of several
years a number of these plays were
produced by the local organization.
Finally Samuel French, Inc., sent
a bill for an unstated amount to Mr.
Buckley as the sponsor of Mimes.
Mr. Buckley countered with a re-
quest for an itemized statement. At
this point the company sent a com-
plaint to President Alexander G.
Ruthven, put the matter in the hands
of an Ypsilanti attorney, and for-
warded a statement of the amount

Believe It Or Not, Armadillo Is
Likew A Whale In One Respect

This Daily want ad got more
business than this home
laundry could take
care of

By GEORGE M. HOLMES
To say that an armadillo resembles
a whale, like seeing pink elephants,
implies a strain of idiocy, or some-
thing similar. However, in one par-
ticular, this resemblance is true. The
arrangement of protective bony ar-
mor so apparent in the armadillo is
found in only one other living crea-
ture, the whale, where it is not as
noticeable.
Indeed, the armadillo is a queer
fellow in many respects. His teeth, if

most impossible to extract him. In-
deed, he is so capable of clinging to
the sides of his burrow with his short
feet that pulling will often fail to
dislodge him, as he prefers to lose his
tail.
Many natives consider the arma-
dillo as a delicacy, yet the ordinary
American would probably take a dis-
like to a stewed one, as his flesh is
somewhat tasty because of his diet.
He feeds on roots, insects, worms,
reptiles, and carrion.
