The veteran Swagger Sherley, of

arted for Washington to head the

1933 Undergraduates Lauded
By Campbell For Seriousness

Students are working harder these
last few years, life has become more
competitive and more serious than
before and the attitude of students
has changed correspondingly, accord-
ing to consensus of opinion of several
faculty members. In their belief,
students are more interested in prac-
tical knowledge and in liberal ideas
than they were before the depression.
It used to be that anyone who
graduated from college was sure of
at least a teaching position, and
those who entered the professional
schools felt especially secure, said
Prof. O. J. Campbell, of the English
department. Now the undergraduate
realizes that there is no room in the
world for "wastrels" and he must
head his profession if he is to over-
come the keen competition that op-
poses him; the "primrose path" is no
more, but in its place is a sincerity
of purpose, he added.
More interest has been shown in
the last few years in the practical
application of economic principles
rather than the purely theoretical
side, according to W. B. Palmer, of
the economics department. There is

practice that is an improvement over
the previous abstract conception of
In the same department a keener
appreciation of the problems of labor
is noticed in the attitude of thestu-
dents and there is "an awareness of
the problem of the insecurity of
labor," it was said. This tendency
toward liberalism was also remarked
on by Prof. M. S. Pargment, of the
Romance languages department, who
believes that the student has become
"less prudish" and more open-
minded in his views toward life in all
its phases.
American students have been pro-
gressing steadily for the last 10 years
in the direction of more sincerity and
intenseness of purpose, according to
Professor Pargment. Prof. J. B.
Shepard of the psychology depart-
ment also advanced the belief that
the student has become more serious
since the war, but a different type
of "seriousness" has developed since,
the depression. There is more worry,
students are nearer the "verge of
things" than they have been, and
they realize the sacrifice that is in-
volved in sending them to college,

now a definite linking of theory with he said.

Hoover Scheme "Out"
The recent reorganization scheme
submitted to Congress by President
Hoover appears to be out. Whatever
is liked, of course, will be kept, but
Roosevelt and Sherley have their own
ideas and are now after all the data
to be obtained in drafting things into
a concrete program.
-Setting March 4-inauguration day
-for the date when he wants to have
the reorganization set-up all pre-
pared, it appears the President-Elect
is going to include this in the agenda
for the special session of the new
Congress which probably will be
called in April.
Hoping to avoid asi much as possi-
ble increased unemployment through
the new, arrangement, Mr. Roosevelt
indicated he would favor either the
furlough plan or a stagger system or
both to make up for the reduction

Fund Donations
Proceeds From Good Will
Drive Are Given Over
To Aid Needy Students
Contribution of women students
to the Good Will fund have been
turned over to Alice C. Lloyd, dean of
women for distribution among
women on the campus, and contribu-
tions from men students have been
given to Joseph A. Bursley, dean of
students, for distribution among men
in need of assistance, the executive
committee reported yesterday.
The fund, amounting to nearly
$2,000 cash with additional money
pledged, has already proved extreme-
ly valuable, according to Dean Burs-
ley. It is being used only after care-
ful consideration of individual cases
and money is then given without
contract for paying it back. However,
there is an understanding that if
the student feels at some future time
that he can repay the money it will
be received and placedmback in the
fund for further use.
The executive committee also de-
cided that money subscribed to the
fund from outside sources will be
divided among the men and women
on a proportionate basis. Under this
plan the men receive three fourths
of that money and the women one
fourth. This distribution is the same
that is used in giving out funds from
the local welfare chest.
Dean Bursley is highly pleased
with the aid which the Good Will
fund has already made possible. Two
persons have received $25 in in-
stances where without that assis-
tance they would have been in diffi-
cult circumstances. Gifts of larger
amounts than these will be excep-
There is a large supply of excellent

man of the student committee, said
last night. A down deposit of $3.50,
which will be returned in the last

WASHINGTON, Jan. 27.-(A!)-
Rigid instructions on future Federal
enforcement of the dry laws, which
high-ranking prohibition officials
termed a "severe handicap," were
approved today by the House.
It adopted a series of amendments
to the Department of Justice supply
bill, tearing from the hands of the
Prohibition Bureau its powerful
weapons of purchase of evidence,
wire tapping and so-called "under-
cover men."
In addition, the House voted, 129
to 118, to reduce to $8,440,000 the
Bureau's appropriation for the next
fiscal year-10 per cent below the
present appropriation. The action is
not final and must be approved by
the Senate and the President.
The debate evoked sharp words
and rapidly rising tempers.

Snows Claim Six Victims
So Far This Year
(By Associated Press)
The winter unleashed gales yester-
day which imperiled ships off the
Atlantic and Pacific coasts and con-
tinued to blanket the western Sierra
Nevadas with a snow which claimed
its sixth victim.
One thousand miles off the Wash-
ington coast the freighter, Everett,
with a crew of 35, became disabled
and sent out distress signals. Later
temporary repairs were made and
the freighter turned back toward
Seattle. Other ships, however, pro-
ceeded toward the Everett to stand
by if needed.
Off the New England coast a
northeasterly gale, which shipping
men described as the worst of the
winter, tore the Nantucket lightship
adrift and drove her out to sea.
Beach cottages also were threatened..

With nearly all roads in that sec-

the eastern slope of the Sierra Ne-
vadas today, and a new storm moved
in from the coast, sweeping over the
desert country.
The snowpack at Soda Springs,
summit of the Sierra northwest of
Lake Tahoe, measured more than
120 inches.
Light snow whitened sections of
Nebraska, North Dakota, Minnesota,
Iowa, Wisconsin and Michigan. Four
Illinois motor car deaths were at-
tributed to the weather. Tempera-
tures in North Dakota today ranged
downward to 10 degrees below zero.

The Democratic party, according

and said that there would be no

The major political battles in the
March primary appear now to center
on the Republican mayoral and city
clerk contests. Robert A. Campbell,
Michigan's famous "Uncle Bob," is
opposed for mayor by John Nee-

member of the Ann Arbor Board of
Educ ;ion. Fred Perry, incumubent
city clerk, faces the opposition of L.

DETROIT, Jan. 27.-A;)--A state-
ment published in the London Eve-
ning Standard quoting Henry Ford
as attributing his suspension of
work, rendering 100,000 men idle, to
"certain of my competitors who are
operating against me" was declared
to be "substantially correct" tonight
by officials of the Ford Motor Com-
(The London Standard statement
quoted Mr. Ford as saying, "The
actual truth is that certain bankers
are trying to obtain control of the
Ford concern." A member of Mr.
Ford's staff said today, however, the
motor magnate had told him that
was not exactly correct.)
Withhold Names
The officials commenting on the
statement declined to permit use of
their names. Neither would they at-
tempt to elaborate on it nor promise
any further comment from Mr. Ford.
When the Ford company an-
nounced its suspension yesterday, it
stated it "no longer could continue
production without bodies furnished
by the Briggs Manufacturing Com-
pany, "whose plants were shut down
early this week following a walk-out
of 6,000 employees.
The Standard quoted Mr. Ford as
saying, in a trans-Atlanitic telephone
conversation, that "certain of his
competitors" were seeking to pre-
vent "another Ford car from leav-
ing the factory."
"Can't Be Stopped"
"I know this and I know what to
do about it," the Standard quoted
Ford as saying. "They have suc-
ceeded for a few hours but I am go-
ing straight out now and clean up
this whole affair. I'll fight them and
prove that production of Ford cars
can't be stopped.",
Ford visited the Highland Park
plant of the Briggs Co. today, unan-



A fresh volume of cabinet specuL
tion today, particularly from Wash-
ington, brought a smiling denial that
any cabinet posts have been formally
offered to anyone. It was made clear
that Mr. Roosevelt is not worrying
about this phase of his pre-presi-
dency and would make his selections
and announcements in his own time,
It also was made rather emphatic
that no cabinet choices would be an-
nounced before he sails for a fishing
cruise next week.
Fire of unknown origin broke out
shortly after 1 a. m. today in Deis-
ing's Confectionery, 800 S. State St.,
causing small damage, the amount of

men, who said smoke and water were
largely responsible for the loss.

Forceful Emotionalism Of
Noted Pianist Impresses
Hearers At Recital
Myra Hess proved a gracious as
well as a masterful pianist last :ightI
when she granted six encores to an
enthusiastic audience in Hill Audi-
torium. The forceful emotionalism
of Miss Hess' playing upheld her po-
sition as one of the outstanding
pianists of the day.
The scheduled program consisted
of Fantasia and Fugue in C major
by Mozart; Sonata, Opus 110, by
Beethoven; three Intermezzi from
Opus 119 and I9hapsody in E-fiat
major by Brahms; and eight Pre-
ludes from Opus 28 and 45, by
The encores were: an 18th cen-
tury German melody by Kammell;
Parodies by Toccata; a Chorale by
Bach and arranged by Miss Hess;
Allegro by Bach; and Little Sonata
by Scarlatti.
Miss Hess spent only 12 hours in
Ann Arbor. She arrived at 1:30 p. m.
from Washington and left for Roch-
ester, N. Y., at 2 a. m. this morning.

Receipt of an anonymous gift of
$1,000 a year for three years, with
5200 a year in addition for miscel-

the Board of Regents at its regular
meeting yesterday afternoon. The
purpose of the gift is a fellowship

school in the museum of anthropol-
>gy for the purpose of studying ab-
>riginal North American ceramics.
The University is toshare in an-
ether fellowship donation by E. R.
Squibb, nationally-known drug man-
acturer. The sum of $1,400 was placed
by Mr. Squibb at the disposal of the
National Research Council, to es-
tablish two fellowships, one at Michi-
gan, for study under the committee
on drug addiction of the division of'
medical science of the Council. Dr.
C. W. Edmunds, professor of materia
tnedica and therapeutics, will be in
charge of the fellowship here.
Formal recogmnon was made of
the previously-announced gift of 87
volumes from the law library of the
late Prof. Evans Holbrook. Especially
prized in the collection are a volume

Mrs. Stewart G. Bates of Detroit
was appointed to the board of gover-
nors of Martha Cook dormitory for
a period of one year.
Prof. Philip E. Bursley was granted

second semester of this year, and
Assistant Prof. H. C. Hutchins was
granted a continuation of his pres-
ent leave through the second semes-
ter to complete the work in which
he is now engaged on Professor
Trent's manuscript of Defoe. Assist-

end the walkout there. A guaranteed
base rate of pay was offered by the
Briggs Company, but the strikers to-
night had not announced their ac-
ceptance of the terms.
Although officials said there was
no disorder, police surrounded the
Briggs plant, and the state commis-
sioner of public safety, Oscar G. Ol-
ander, announced the state police
would be detailed to the company's
two plants at 6 a. m. Saturday. He
said that all employees who desired
to work then could do so "without
"Biggest Surprise"
"It was the biggest surprise of my
career when T was informed last
night that 6,000 employees of the
Briggs company had walked out
without giving any particular rea-
son," the Standard quoted Ford as
saying. "I have had difficulties in my
career, but this was the biggest jolt
of all. The result of their action is
that the Ford plant is closed down.
There is a complete holdup."
Ford, the Standard said, declared
he did not "blame the employees of
"They want to work," he was
quoted as saying. "Neither do I
think any attempt is being made
by anyone to force me to place my
motor car body contract with any
other firm. As for my employees,
there is not a man among them that
would strike."
No Other Comments
Other Ford officials made no com-
ments regarding the re-opening of
their plants, but indicated that ces-
sation of the- Briggs company strike
would bring an immediate reaction.
The Briggs officials, conceding
that some employees recently have
failed to make their minimum base
rate of pay, said the situation was
dud to "the rush of initial produc-
tion." They announced abolishment
of reductions for "dead time" in
which men are idle because of the
lack of materials, breakdowns, or
transfers from one plant to another.
