On Proposal Rapid
Was Passed By Michigan
Legislature In March;
Makes Five Provisions
WASHINGTON, Jan. 23.-(IP) -
After 10 years of trying, and a hun-
dred of waiting, the United States
modernized its political machine to-
day, by eliminating defeated officials
-the "lame ducks"-from govern-
ment.
A Twentieth Amendment was writ-
ten into the Constitution, declaring
that after this year both the Presi-
dent and the newly chosen Congress
Prof. Jesse S. Reeves, head of the
political science department, com-
mented as follows on the ratification
of the amendment: "We should all
be gratified. While the 'Lame Duck'
amendment will not guarantee a bet-
ter government at Washington, it
will do more to tone it up than any
change of recent years. Would that
it had been in effect during the pres-
ent inter-regnum."
shall take office the January follow:
ing November's election and that the
short session, which for so long has
clogged the political machinery with
its ineffectiveness, shall be held no
more. The present one is the last.
Final Action Rapid
Thirty-six states of the Union rati-
fied the Amendment in less than
one-tenth the time it took to con-
vince Congress that the country de-
manded abolition of this lumbering
antiquity.
Mic igan ratified the Amendment'
in Ma 1932.
Missouri dompleted the ratifica-
tion, seizing the distinction of being
the thirty-sixth state by a wideawake
maneuver. Its House was to meet at
2 p. In. to act on the amendment
already ratified by the Missouri
Senate. The Massachusetts House
was to do exactly the same thing but
had the one-hour advantage of being
in the Eastern time zone. The Mis-
souri Speaker rounded up his mem-
bers for a session at 10 o'clock in the
morning, and the job was done in
next to no time.
The provisions of the Amendment
follow:
PROVISIONS
SECTION 1. The term of the Pres-
and Vice President shall end at noon
on the 20th day of January, and the
terms of Senators and Representa-
tives at noon on the 3d day of Jan-
uary, of the year in which such terms
would have ended if this article had
not been ratified; and the terms of
their successors shall then begin.
SECTION 2. The Congress shall
assemble at least once in every year,
and such meeting shall begin at noon
on the 3d day of January, unless they
shall by law apppoint a different day.
SECTION 3. If, at any fixed for
the beginning of the term of the
President, the President-elect shall
have died, the Vice President-elect
shall become President. If a Presi-
dent shall not have been chosen be-
fore the time fixed for the beginning
of his term, or if the President-elect
shall have failed to qualified, then

the Vice President-elect shall act as
President until a President shall have
qualified; and the Congress may by
law provide for the case wherein
neither a President-elect nor a Vice
President-elect shall have qualified,
declaring who shall then act as Pres-
ident, or the manner in which one
who is to act shall be selected, and
such person shall act accordingly un-
til a President or Vice President shall
have qualified.
Gives House A New Power
SECTION 4. The Congress may by
law provide for the case of the death
of any of the r ersons from whom the
House of Repr' sentatives may choose
a President whenever the right of
choice shall have devolved upon
them, and for the case of the death
of any of the persons from whom
the Senate may choose a Vice Presi-
dent whenever the right of choice
shall have devolved upon them.
SECTION 5. Sections 1 and 2
shall take effect on the 15th day of
October following the ratification of
+his. ae

Announce New
Varsity Debate
Question Today
Mass Education Called The
Most Interesting Subject
In Years; Tryouts Soon
With the official announcement of
the 1933 Western Conference debate
question, plans for tryouts for the
second semester Varsity squad are
complete, according to Coach J. H.
McBurney, of the speech department.
The question as accepted by all the
member schools will read, "Resolved,
That a Limitation of Enrollment in
W e s t e r n Conference Universities
Should Be Effected by Raising the
Scholarship Standards."
"I believe this question will inter-.
est University audiences more than
anything we have debated in recent
years," commented Mr. McBurney, in
making public the statement.
Try outs have been announced for
the afternoon of Feb. 15. The 20 who
have reported and signified their in-
tentions of trying out will be cut to
a much smaller unit at that time.
Conference debates for the semes-
ter will be held early in March with
Ohio State at Columbus and Indiana
here. In addition to these regular
debates meetings have been tenta-
tively scheduled with the University
of Detroit, City College of Detroit,
New York University, and Notre
Dame University and will be held in
Ann Arbor or the vicinity.

Tokio Orator
Sees Possible
War With U.S.
Former Party Spokesman
Criticizes Tie Japanese
Military Diplomacy
'No Uneasiness' Is
Minister's Answer
Count Uchida Declares
That Foreign Policy Is
Liked By People
TOKIO, Jan. 23.-()-The spokes-
man for one of Japan's principal po-
litical parties declared in the Diet
today that unless relations between
Japan and the United States are im-
proved they will produce renewed
armaments competition and possibly
a world war.
This statemnt was made by Hita-..
shi Ashida, formerly chosen spokes-
man for the Selyukai party, who de-
livered the boldest criticism of the
current military domination of Jap-
anese diplomacy heard in Parliament
since the Manchurian conflict began
in September, 1931.
In response to Ashida's assertion
that "a gloomy situation" rules re-
lations between Japan and America
the foreign minister, Count Yasyua
Uchida, declared that "there is no
uneasiness concerning our relations
with the United States."
Ashida questioned the desirability
of the army's domination of diplom-
acy and asserted that the public was
afraid that "we are being dragged
blindly into an uncharged pitch-dark
abyss."
"Where is the government leading
us?" he asked. "What is to be Ja-
pan's future?"
He urged Gen. Sadao Araki, the
minsiter of war, to "forsake the no-
tion that the army is almighty."
His criticism was directed against
the methods and not against the sub-
stance of the .government's plicy in
Manchuria. Count Uchida responded
that the foreign policy was conduct-
ed "in accordance with the will of
the people and in co-operation with
the army."
Publisher Talks To
Journalis Class
Pointing out that the greatest pub-
lic service in the journalistic field
is rendered "in a small way" by the
lesser newspapers, A. L. Miller, pub-
lisher of the Battle Creek Enquirer-
News, in a lecture here yesterday
outlined three ways in which the
press could render important public
service during the present crisis.
The trifold policy he advocated in-
cluded: (1) moderate editorials dur-
ing local critical situations, cooling
the passions of extremists; (2) sup-
pression or coloration of news stories
of a potentially dangerous nature;
(3) the exposure of malicious propa-
ganda.
Speech Class Loses To
Business Men In Debate
Members of Professor G. E. Dens-
more's extension class in public
speaking defeated members of his
campus team in a debate held last
night in the Adelphi room of Angell
Hall.
The question debated was, Resolv-
ed, That capital punishment should

be adopted in the State of Michigan.
The members of the extension team
supported the negative and the cam-
pus team the affirmative.
The decision as given by Prof.
Floyd K. Riley, of the speech depart-
ment, was in favor of the negative,

Delay Action
On Freshman
Rooming Rule
Senate Committee Fails
To Set Meeting Date;
Action May Come Soon
Landladies Must
Be Told Of Change
Survey Shows That 282
Yearlings Would Move;
$5,000 Saving Possible
Although fraternities are waiting
for a verdict on the ruling that would
permit freshmen to live in chapter
houses, no definite plans had been
made last night for a meeting of the
Senate Committee on Student Af-
fairs, the body that must decide the
matter.
Yesterday, Joseph A. Bursley, dean
of students and chairman of the
committee, indicated that perhaps
the meeting would be held at the
end of this week or the beginning of
next week.
Officers of the Interfraternity
Council again warned first year men
that they must inform their land-
ladies that they may move out of
their rooms before Friday of this
week if they plan to live in fraterni-
ties provided the ban is lifted.
The proposal to amend the ruling
was first brought before the Inter-
fraternity Council by a group of fra-
ternity men who claimed that it was
the only means of saving several
houses from financial disaster. After
the plan was passed by that body,
householders besieged the dean of
students' office with complaints
stating that the University's agree-
ment with the householders had been;
violated. In spite of the protests,,
however, the Judiciary committee
of the Council passed the amend-
ment.
A recent survey shows that 282
students would move into fraternity1
houses, if the ban is lifted. This
would mean an approximate saving
of $5,000 to the fraternities.
The gravity of the fraternity sit-,
uation was brought out at the last
meeting of the Judiciary Committee
when a plan was discussed to com-
bine several fraternities which are
experiencing financial difficulties. A
committee has been appointed to in-I
vestigate the possibility of such a
move. Although some local chapters
favor such action, it is doubtful if
the national headquarters of the fra-
ternities would permit it.
Freshmen who failed to hand in
preference lists last fall are eligible
for pledging at 6 p. m. Friday, Feb.
10, according to the rushing rules of
the Council.
Constance Giefel
hurt In Accident
Constance Giefel, '33, of Ann Ar-
bor, suffered head and body bruises
when she w a s injured yester-
day afternoon oy an automobile
driven by W. A. Gingrich, 1118 Bald-
win Ave.
She was immediately taken to the
Health Service where her condition
was pronounced not serious by Dr.
Margaret Bell after x-rays had been
taken. She was confined to the
Health Service for observation, how-
ever.
Miss Giefel had just stepped out
of a car driven by her brother, Wil-

liam Giefel, '34, and was crossing
State Street at Jefferson Avenue. Ac-
cording to her brother, Miss Giefel
evidently misgauged the direction of
Gingrich's car, which was turning
the corner on to Jefferson Avenue,
and walked into the car's side.

By ELEANOR B. BLUM
"Freshman women come to the
University with a real desire to par-
ticipate in athletics; if the classes in
physical education have become a
burden, then there must be some-
thing wrong with the system," Mrs.
Wilma T. Donahue, freshman adviser
and assistant in the psychology de-
partment, stated in an interview yes-
terday.
"Psychologically, anything com-
pulsory meets with a certain amount
of opposition and certainly the same
amount of benefit does not accrue
under compulsion. The fact that
physical education classes are not of
sufficient interest to hold the stu-
dents is seen in the apparent dle-
crease in the number of women who
take physical education after they
have finished the two compulsory
years."
That the freshman women display
such a marked interest in athletics
should guarantee a large attendance
in non-compulsory classes. Almost
the first question I am asked as
Freshman adviser is "Mrs. Donahue,
can I take tennis?" or "Is there a
golf class?" Obviously something
must account for the lack of enthu-
siasm after their two years of com-

Compulsory Aspect Of Physical
Education Termed Objectionable

pulsory gymnasium. Perhaps if the
compulsion were withdrawn and in
its stead more inter-class competi-
tion set up, the system would be
more popular, Mrs. Donahue sug-
gested.
Some of the interest manifested
by the freshman is the result of high
school successes, and when they
come here and receive little or no
opportunity to display any minor
ability, their interest soon wanes--
partly because they are under force
and partly because there is little
competitive spirit within the gymna-
sium classes.
"Academic classes are almost en-
tirely run on the assumption that the
students come because they want to
attain an end, and it seems to me
that if physical education classes
were run on the same principal the
women would see that the end they
should seek if the physical fitness to
carry on academic work."
"The interest and enthusiasm that
would be the natural result of the
withdrawal of compulsion and the
installation of competitive tactics
would react favorably both psycho-
logically and physically," Mrs., Don-
ahue concluded, "for anything that
can be attained by natural means
is always more desirable."

The present doctrine of economy is
fallacious and will only aggravate
the depression, Dr. Marvin V. Baxter,
socialist mayor of West Allis, Wis.,
said in a speech on "Men and Ma-
chines" last night in Natural Sci-
ence Auditorium.
Dr. Baxter, who said he was trying
to extend a knowledge of socialism
to other people, declared that ma-
chinery belongs to the whole human
race and that social wealth should
not be owned individuals. He said
that the Socialist party believes that
all industries that are used to ex-
ploit man must be socially controlled.
Council Turns
Tax Discussion
Into A Debate
Dobson Assails Council,
Alderman For Sanitary
Sewer Extension Plans
A special meeting of the city coun-
cil called last night by Mayor H.
Wirt Newkirk to consider the crisis
in the collection of delinquent taxes
and the mounting demands. on the
welfare department, turned into a
free-for-all debate.
Councilmen accused City Treasur-
er William Verner of trying to "pass
the buck," and R. T. Dobson, ac-
cused the council in general and
alderman William Paton in particu-
lar of attempting a breech of faith
in proposing to extend the sanitary
sewer beyond the limits previously
specified. Dobson declared that he
would swear out an injunction if the
council passed the proposed meas-
ure. Action was deferred.
The council directed Treasurer
Verner to make immediate seizures
of goods belonging to personal tax
delinquents after March 1.

woul be at agtinimwzi ,,said Mr.
Slifer, and would not be a hardship'
on the houses. "With more than 50
houses on the campus, the total
number to be housed by each frater-
nity would be comparatively small,"
he said. "If the plan would help keep
up competition in minor sports, I
think the fraternities would be will-
ing to make the small sacrifice."
Mr. Brown said' that he thought
the plan was "a might fine one," and
could see no reason why it should
not be adopted. He likewise pointed
out that the burden placed on the
fraternities would be small.
Fraternity men looked on the plan
with skepticism, however, and sev-
eral houses stated that they were
willing to keep members of their own
fraternity but did not want to pledge
themselves to take anyone the Coun-
cil "pawned off" on them.
The proposal would keep many of
the minor sports alive, according to
its backers, as several are now on the
verge of cutting off intercollegiate
competition.
T, S. Eliot Will Talk
On Poetry Today
T. S. Eliot, who will lecture at 4:15
p. m. today in Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre on "Edward Lear and Mod-
ern Poetry," is qualified both as a
poet and critic. Though American
born and educated, he has been for
20 years a resident of England.
Better known perhaps as a critic
and editor of an English review, Mr.
Eliot nevertheless has great prestige
as a poet. TheodoretSpencer, review-
ing his poetry in the January At-
lantic Monthly, ranks him with Wil-
liam Butler Yeats, who spoke here
last fall.
"With the exception of Yeats,"
Spencer says, "and it is hard to
choose between them-he (Eliot) is
undoubtedly the bes t of living Eng-
lish poets." His lack of prominence is
due to the scarcity of his poetical
work and to its unusualness, which
makes it difficult for many to under-
stand, according to Spencer.
State Supervisors To

The critical situation in the state
in the matter of taxation and tax
deliquency will form the principal

of Supervisors opening today at

Myra Hess Is
Highly Praised
By Music Critics
The re-engagement of Myra Hess,
British pianist, to appear Jan. 27 in
Hill Auditorium, has created grow-
ing excitement in Ann Arbor musical
circles.
Plaudits extended the pianist, how-
ever, her popularity zenith, in Amer-
ica, she has received comments the
nature of which is indicated by a
few scattered samples.
Olin Downes, writing in the New
York Times in 1930, called Miss Hess
one of the few virtuosos who prove
that the piano can be a medium of
especial beauty. "The *public," he
said, "which is very faithful to Miss
Hess, and which grows with each
season, is well aware of these facts
and prove, its appreciation by pack-
ing her hall whenever she appears.
"The playing of Miss Hess grows
each season in resource and charm.
Her style is the product of artistic

traits deep within her. Its develop-
,and it seems to grow richer every
year."

Eddie Tolan Declares He Will
Not Be Induced To Run Again

DETROIT, Jan. 23.-(AP)-For be-
spectacled little Eddie Tolan, whoseI
short legs swept him to triumphs as
sprint king of .1932 Olympiad, the
heady wine of victory has turned
overnight, to vinegar.
Eddie Tolan, the speed flash, will

One whole wall in Eddie Tolan's
room is covered with gold and silver
medals. Tables and cases are piled
with trophies. The Olympic insignia

games brought a massed stadium to'
its feet.
Eddie Tolan isn't complaining. But
he believes that fame such as he
earned is futile. Two weeks ago he
got a job. He is a filing clerk in a
county office here. His lifetime hope
and dream of becoming a great
physician is waning, for he has been
unable to make enough to support
himself and his parents, also unem-
ployed for many months, and to
