BERLIN, Oct. 12.-(P)-Deep con-
cern was manifested at the American
embassy today over the recurrence of
Nazi molestations of Americans.
As word reached here that Secre-
tary of State Hull at Washington had
demanded prompt apprehension of
offenders, a foreign office spokesman
said there had been no needless delay.
"We are doing all possible," he
said, "to hasten the prosecuting of
His statement was prompted by
new representations to the German
government, occasioned by the attack
on Roland Velz, a native of Maryland
and former resident of Connecticut.
Velz was strick twice in the face
by a Nazi trooper Tuesday at Dus-
seldorf, he told American embassy
attaches, when he failed to give the
Nazi salute as a parade passed.
U.nited States Ambassador William
E. Dodd complained of government
delay in answering his requests for
the prosecution of those guilty in the
series of molestations of Amercans.
"The'embassy of its own accord last
Thursday addressed a formal note to
the foreign office along the same lines
as indicated by Secretary Hull," the
ambassador said, but all these days
have elapsed and no reply has been
It was explained at the foreign
office, however, that the delay result-

The impatience of the American
officials has been increased by the
fact that although apologies have
been offered for the molestations no
prosecutions have been undertaken.
On July 7, Philip Zuckerman, an
American fur dealer, was assaulted
allegedly by Nazis.
A month later, Aug. 17, Dr. Daniel
Mulvihill of Danbury, Conn., connect-
ed with the Long Island Medical col-
lege at Brooklyn, was struck on the
head for failing to salute a Nazi de-
tachment. ^

American demands, the ministry of

Students Of Puerto
Rico Raise Storm


Over Appointment
(By Intercollegiate Press)
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Oct. 12.-
"To Governor Robert H. Gore from
the student body of the University
of P u e r t o Rico," was the inscrip-
tion on a book presented to the is-
land's chief executive last week.
But it was no good will offering'
from the Puerto Rican students. The
book was a copy of Antonio Carreno's
Spanish= Etfquette, and it was pur-
chased with a subscription taken up
by the students after the governor
had twice refused to see a studentj
delegation calling at his office to pro-
test the appointment of Rafael Alon-
zo Torres to the board of trustees of
the university.
The protest, the students said, was
made not because of the fact that
Torres is a socialist, but because he
did not have the educational qualifi-
cations for the office. The students
suggested the names of several other
Socialists they thought better quali-
fied for the position.
When they could not see Gov. Gore,
the students cabled a protest to Presi-
dent Roosevelt at Washington.
Latin - American students at all
times take more than an academic
interest in the affairs of government,
and they are considered as powerful
political influences.'
This was demonstrated particularly
in Cuba, where the A.B.C., largely a
student organization, finally was suc-
cessful in overthrowing the govern-
Economy Measure
Hits U. Hospital
The South Department of the Uni-
versity Hospital formerly called the
Homeopathic Hospital, was closed
yesterday "as a measure of economy,"
according to hospital authorities.
The department, which has a ca-
pacity of 125, was used for convales-
cent orthopedic, or bone-joint pa-
tients. They were transferred to some
of the other units which had avail-
able space.
It is expected that the department
will remain closed for a period of
three months after which it will be
reopened if the space is required.
At present the kitchen, which is sup-
plying the Health Service with in-
firmary food, is the only part of the
South Department which is remain-
ing in operation.

proposition should be definitely of-
fered. There the matter seemed to
Two weeks ago, however, he re-
ceived word that the committee had
unanimously agreed to recommend
him if he would permit them to go
ahead. He agreed to consider the
matter if it were offered, and the
result was a unanimous call issued by
the congregation as a special meet-
ing held last 'Wednesday night. It
is now up to li. Anderson.
Dr. Anderson is a graduate of
Washington and Jefferson College,
where he played half-back on the
football team, and from which in-
stitutiori he received his bachelor of
arts and master of artsdegrees. Fol-
lowing t is, he earned his bachelor
of divinity degre, from' McCormick
Theological Seminary,' Chicago, and
his doctor pf divinity degree from
Miami SI ate University, in Oxford,
Ohio. In addition to his Ann Ar-
bor pastorate, he has been connected
with Presbyterian churches in Phila-
delphia, Dayton, 0., St. Louis, and
Morristown, N. J.
During the var he was a chap-
lain connected with the 42nd and
the 39th Engineers, but was detached
and put in charge of the welfare and
religious work at Camp Merritt,
where he served until the close of
the War. In 1919 he was elected to
an executive position under the Gen-
eral Council of the Presbyterian
church, with headquarters in Phila-
delphia. He resigned from this serv-
ice in 1924 because he preferred the
work of the pastorate. At that time
he had several pastorates offered to
him, but he chose Ann Arbor because
of the opportunity to work with stu-
dents. ..
His love pf student work will prob-
ably be the deciding factor in his

present choice; North Church is in
the vicinity of both Columbia Uni-
versity and the College of the City
of New York, and many of the men
of the church are Columbia faculty

made that all fraternities should start
making plans for decorations. As in
the past, a local cleaning and press-
ing establishment indicated to Coun-
cil members that it would again fur-
nish a cup to be presented to the

To Enforce Pots
A report by the Council committee
in charge of the recent campus NRA
drive, indicated that between 4,000
and 5,000 stickers had been sent out
to students during the two-day drive
-which the Council conducted. An an-
nouncement was also made indicating
the intention of all Council members
to stand behind the movement for
encouraging freshmen to wear pots.
The individual members and the
Council proper pledged full support to
the campaign now under way to up-
hold this and other campus tradi-
The disciplinary committee issued
a report on the few cases which have
come before that body recently. Mem-
bers of the committee are to meet
with the faculty disciplinary commit-
tee today when the latter g r o u p
passes upon the recommendations in
the case of two students who were
arrested by local police Saturday
night. The results of that meeting
will provide a basis for the formulat-
ing of plans which may govern simi-
lar cases in the future.

Welfare Funds
Reduced, Says

State Administrator S e e s
Need Of Using Weight
Tax Money For Relief
State funds for welfare work are
g r e a t ly diminished, according to
State Administrator Fred Johnson,
who made a report at the annual Oc-
tober meeting of the Washtenaw
Board of Supervisors Tuesday in
the County Building. As a solution
for this condition, Johnson suggested
that the county use the weight tax
money for relief work.
County Clerk Harry H. Atwell re-
ported receipts of $5,695.75 for the
year which ended Sept. 30 and sub-
mitted a new budget of $4,300 to the
finance commission.
Sheriff Jacob Andres reported ex-
penses of $23,936 and put forth a new
budget of $24,429 which included
$200 for police radios in the county
Frank H. Tichnor, county treas-
urer, estimated a budget of $4,235
for the coming year. He reported a
balance of $577,094 in all county
funds as compared to $893,093 with
which the year started.
Reports were heard from the school
nurse, the truant officer, and juve-
nile probation officer.
Official Demands
License Reduction
LANSING, Oct. 12.-The steady de-
crease in the number of automobiles
in use in Michigan since 1929, bears
out the contention of Secretary of
State Frank D. Fitzgerald that the
cost of license plates should be re-
duced datcly.
On Oct. 1, 1933, there were 67,807
fewer cars and trucks on Michigan
highways than in 1932 and 269,326
less than in 1929. Many of these cars
are not being operated because the
owners are unable to purchase license
plates. This is shown by the half-
price permits which allowed 1932
plates to be used until Aug. 1. Of the
415,496 motorists who purchased
half-price permits, only 343,140, as
near as can be ascertained, have been
able to purchase 1933 plates.
Revenue from the sale of plates al-
so is decreasing. For the first 10
months of 1933, automobile license
revenues amounted to $17,359,262.
This is a decrease of $1,232,896 for
the same period last year and $4,077,-
119 less than for the first 10 months
bf 1929.

Ping-Pong And
Bridge Tourney
Draw Students
With more than 50 already signed
up for ping-pong and approximately
20 teams for the contract bridge
play, final registrations for the first
tourneys on the Union's fall sched-
ule will be taken between the hours
of 3 and 5 p. m. this afternoon at
the student offices.
Student response to the plans have
been greater than was anticipated,
officials said, but there is still room
for a number of entries in both the
events. Many fraternities have en-
rolled teams to play in the contract
bridge tournament and it is expected
that a number of others will sign
up today. At present the teams are
about half from fraternities and half
composed of independents.
Both tournaments begin Monday,
Oct. 16. Players in the ping-pong
will play singles matches at this
time, officials having decided to hold
another tournament for doubles la-
ter if this one proves successful. It
was emphasized that failure to play
any match constitutes a forfeit.
Make an appointment.
There is no waiting if
you take care of it now
