New System Constitutes
Greatest Of Changes

Cause Of Action Taken;
Kohl Is Ranking Officer
Constituting one of the most com-
plete changes in the history of the
department, announcement was made
yesterday of the changing of the Uni-
versity Reserve Officers Training
Corps from a battalion to a regiment.
Practically every one of the 600
members of the unit will be affected
by the change, as it involves altera-
tion of the rankCs of student officers,
the addition of a regimental staff
and three battalion staffs instead of
one, and the creation of six new com-
panies. Under the new arrangement
there will be 13 companies, each with
a captain and three lieutenants.
Three majors will command the three
battalions, and a colonel and lieu-
tenant-colonel the regiment.
Enrollment Is Increased
According to Lieut.-Col. Frederick,
S. Rogers, commandant of the Uni-
versity regiment, the change was
necessitated by the greatly increased
enrollment and by the desire to give
all officers a chance to become iden-
tified with their own particular or-
ganizations, to be responsible for
their training, and to provide them
with the opportunity toreceive credit
where it is due for leadership.
At the same time Colonel Rogers
announced the appointment of com-
missioned officers in the regiment
for the present academic year. All
men receiving appointments are sen-
iors in the unit. President Alexander
G. Ruthven formally approved the+
naming of student officers yesterday

Fall Games To
Be Discussed
By Freshmen
Caucus Planned For Next
Wednesday; Games To
Be Saturday, Oct. 21
Freshman response to the challenge
of members of the sophomore class
who have already laid plans for a
caucus of their members was an-
nounced yesterday when it was de-
termined that the men of the first
year class will meet Wednesday after-
noon at the Union to elect a chair-
man for the Fall Games and map
out their plans to harass the soph-
omores. '
No leaders of the class of 1937 have
been named gs yet, but it was ru-
mored yesterday that a number of
the men had had a meeting and ar-
ranged preliminary plans for their
caucus, including the tentative selec-
tion of a leader for the class games.
Sophomores will hold their caucus
at 4:30 p. m. Monday at the Union,
at which time they will elect a cap-
tain for their class in the games and
make plans for the Homecoming
week-end eventg.
The games wl be held Saturday
morning, Oct. 21, which is the date
of the Michigan-Ohio State football
game and of the annual Fall Home-
coming. Included in the list of com-
petitions for the morning are the pil-
low fight, the cane spree, the hog-ty-
ing contest, and the flag rush.
Last year members of the freshman
class made a clean sweep of the class
games, even in spite of a larger gen-
eral participation on the part of the
second year men than had been seen
for several years previous.
As was inaugurated last year, the
fraternity having the largest propor-
tion of its freshmen pledges present
for the morning contests will receive
a silver cup, to be held until the time
of the next games at Spring Home-
Advance indications are that next
week will prove an unsettled one for
members of both classes, as wander-
ing groups have already been re-
ported on and about the campus,
searching for rivals to subdue.

Reich Leaves
League And
Arms Parley
Basis Of Withdrawal Is
'Equality And Honor',
Chancellor Declares
Versailles Treaty
Assailed By Hitler
President Von Hindenburg
Sets New Elections Of
Reichstag For Nov. 12
BERLIN, Oct. 14.--P)-Germany
boldly announced her withdrawal to-
day from the League of Nations and
the World Disarmament Conference.
This she didbecausesshe refused
to be a nation "of second class
rights," Chancellor Hitler declared,
and wants "equality and honor."
Hitler told the world the German
government and people are "ani-
mated by no other wish than to help
end the human epoch of tragic error
and regrettable quarrel."
In a dramatic speech, the chancel-
lor condemned the post-war Ver-
sailles Treaty, long a thorn in Ger-
many's side, and maintained there "is
no possibility of territorial conflicts
between France and Germany."
He poured forth his nation's hopes
and grievances. He spoke of the
country's need for defensive weapons,
declared that "the men who today
lead Germany have nothing in com-
mon with the paid traitors of No-
vember, 1918," and maintained the
German people regard themselves as
guiltless for the World War.
Then, to give the people the chance
to express their attitude about these
sudden epochal events, President Paul
von Hindenburg dissolved the Reich-
'stag and set new elections for Nov.
In explaining this "plebiscite," Hit-
ler said his government will not "turl
a deaf ear to proposals for real
peace," but "will welcome every sug-
"The German people," the Chan-
cellor said, "destroyed their weapons
and fulfilled their obligations in the
treaties with a really fanatical fidel-
"The political leadership of the
nation at that time, however, was in
the hands of men spiritually rooted
in the world of victor states."
World Reactions Vary
On German Withdrawal
(By Asso'fated Press)
The world's reaction:
Paris-It's the "gravest news in
20 years," said a government spokes-
man. "We were much surprised but
not upset," said the foreign office.
Confident that right and might are
hers, France feels safe.
Tokyo-Japan, watching the dis-
armament conference from the side-
lines, expressed no regrets at the
prospects of failure at Geneva. An
army spokesman said: "It's easy for
Japan to sympathize with Germany's
demands for arms equality with Oc-
cidental powers."
Geneva--Outwardly was heard: Let
Germany go, we'll get along without
her. Inwardly the powers were ser-
iously disturbed, wondering: whither
leads the road of armaments.
London-Prime Minister MacDon-
ald ordered the foreign office to keep
silent. Great Britain's attitude: To
keep hotheads from rocking the boat.
Washington-Secretary of State

Hull "shuddered" to contemplate
abandonment of efforts to disarm.
The Reich withdrawal, he declared, is
an impediment.

total earnings, in cash and meals, at

The general increases show that 5

in meals, than last year.
Work is of all types, from waiting
table or washing dishes in the cafe-
teria and restaurant to acting as li-
brarian or assisting in the mechani-
cal plant. The largest number is
employed in the restaurant, where
51 of the 129 students work. Next
