Reich's Withdrawal At Geneva
To Strengthen Nazis--Heneman


t Administration
s To Avoid Any
d Entanglements

Conference Hopes
For Co-Operation
Expect To Continue With
Or Without Germany;
Look On Act As Menace
WASHINGTON, Oct. 16-()-The
Roosevelt administration today de-
cided to leave to the European pow-
ers the determination of whether the
disarmament efforts would be con-
tinued on a general scale. America
will not be represented at various
conferences on the continent this
It was disclosed late today that the
United States is particularly anxious
that there be no political entangle-
ments in the negotiations arising
from the crisis caused by Germany's
withdrawal from the Geneva Dis-
armament Conference a n d t h e
League of Nations.
The feeling was manifested in
Washington that such unity of pur-
pose as has existed thus far has cen-
tered entirely upon world disarma-
ment matters, and that this coun-
try has not become politically aligned
with any European power.
Mr. Roosevelt's decision to remain
aloof from the consultations between
the various European capitals during
coming days was reached because it
was felt by officials here that the
implications of these conferences
would be purely political.
Meanwhile in Geneva, Ambassa-
dor-at-Large Norman H. Davis said
that the American delegation was
not interested in foreign negotiations
outside of general disarmament
"While there is a possibility of
successfully carrying on disarma-
ment negotiations, we shall gladly
continue to do our part," Mr. Davis
"We are not, however, interested in
the political element or any purely
European aspect of the picture.
American Co-Operation
Is Believed Necessarv
GENEVA, Oct. 16-(AP)-The con-
viction that hope for a disarmament
agreement now hinges on steadfast
American co-operation was voiced
tonight as the arms conference was
adjourned to Oct. 26.
Statesmen said they have before
thy' the problem of getting Ger-
many back into the negotiations or,
failing this, of drafting an arms con-
vention without the withdrawn Ger-
man delegates.
The conference steering commit-
tee recommended the 10-day suspen-
sion of formal sessions and Arthur
Henderson, the chairman, declared
the hope that the gathering would
continue unflinchingly until the first
stage in arms reductions is achieved,
Henderson sent a reply to Kon-
stantin Von Neurath, the Reich's for-
eign minister, in which the chairman
said he could not accept "as valid"
the reasons Von Neurath gave Sat-
urday for abandoning, as a failure,
the conversations.
But the belief was expressed that
a real menace to peace exists if
Germany refrains from participating
in organized peace processes in Eur-
ope -the arms parley and the
League of Nations.
Governor May
Forbid Dakota
Grain Shipment
BISMARCK, N. D., Oct. 16.-(P)-
North Dakota, the chief wheat-pro-

ducing state of 1933, awaited tonight
a governor's order prohibiting ship-
ment of wheat beyond its borders and
possible use of National Guardsmen
in enforcement.
The "new deal" has not reached
the farmer, said Gov. William Lan-
ger, who announced that he would
order a ban in the hope that higher
prices would result, but added: "It
is hardly possible that the embargo
alone can raise the world grain mar-


Germany's recent withdr val from
the League of Nations and the World
Disarmament Conference will line up
varying phases of opinion in the
Reich even more closely along Chan-
cellor Hitler's narrow road of polit-
ical and economic nationalism, in the
opinion of Harlow J. Heneman, who
came to the University political sci-
ence department as an instructor this
year to fill the vacancy left by Law-
rence Preuss, now studying abroad.
Speaking from experience gained
through three visits to Germany in
the course of the past two years, Mr.
Heneman voiced his belief that this
latest world-significant move by the
fiery Reichskanzler w o u ld "cut
squarely across German party lines"
and so drown out any remaining
feeble opposition in a fervently pa-
triotic rally around the Nazi pro-
gram. He pointed out, too, that the
international aspect and popular ap-
peal of the defection from the
League and the arms parley would
mask another important Hitlerite
move-the dissolution, without provi-
sion for reconvening, of the German
state diets, in a further unification of
the Reich.
"The election of a new Reichstag
Nov. 12 will be nothing more nor
less than a kind of referendum on
the present Italian Fascist plan, with
the electorate voting 'yes' or 'no'
concerning acceptance of a 100 per
cent Nazi ticket," Mr. Heneman said.
"here is no conceivable way the
people of Germany could voice ,op-

position to Hitler at this 'election'
other than by staying at home and
refraining from voting. For this rea-
son the size of the vote, rather than
the 'yeas' and 'nays' of the voters,
will be the center of interest. A
marked falling-off in the votes cast
from that of the March, 1933, elec-
tion would be the only indication of
a possible repudiation of Hitler and
his policies."
Turning to the ever-interesting
problem of a successor to von Hin-
denburg, in the event of his death or
resignation, Mr. Heneman enumer-
ated six possibilities open to Ger-
many and to Hitler. These possibili-
ties are:
(1) Continuance of the president-
ial system with Hitler as president.
(2) Combination of the president's
and chancellor's powers in a "Reich-
sverweser." Hitler to be Reichsver-
(3) Elevation of von Papen to a
figurehead presidency, with Hitler
remaining the true power.
(4) Establishment of a figurehead
monarchy, similar to Italy's, under
August Wilhelm, Nazi "favorite son."
(5) The same as plan 4, but under
Crown Prince Friedrich Wilhelm.
(6) The same as plans 4 and 5,
but under the former Kaiser.
Mr. Heneman expressed his con-
viction that August Wilhelm had the
best opportunity of gaining the
throne in the event of a monarchical
shift. The Crown Prince, he said,
is held by many to be something of

German Stand
Expanded By,
Nazi Minister
Says 'There Must Not Be
A Second Disarmament
Of Germany'
BERLIN, Oct. 16 -- (R) - Foreign
Minister Konstantin von Neurath
told the world's press in effect
today that "there must not be a
second disarmament of Germany."
In a half-hour interview with cor-.
respondents he expanded Chancel-
lor Adolf Hitler's appeal of Saturday
night regarding Germany's with-
drawal from the League of Nations
and the World Disarmament Con-
Baron von Neurath sought to fix
the responsibility for the "world's
tangle" on England and France, and
at the same time paid tribute to
American and Italian arms delegates
for their efforts to mediate the dif-
The question of Germany's equali-
ty, which led to the decision to re-
sign, he declared, was the central
issue in contemporaneous world poli-
This equality, he demonstrated by
an array of historical data, has con-
sistently been denied the Reich.
He challenged the powers repre-
sented at the Geneva conference to
agree on a mutual disarmament,
charged that the British Foreign Of-
fice had misrepresented Germany's
attitude to Washington and pledged
anew that Germany would assist in
any project to rid the world of the
arms burden.
He gave no intimation of what
Germany's future course would be.
Demonstration Staged
By University Students
VIENNA, Oct. 16-(P)-While Aus-
trian university students engaged in
violent demonstrations of sympathy
with Germany today many expres-
sions of exultation were heard in of-
ficial circles.
At universities here and in Graz
and Innsbruck students unfurled
Nazi flags, exploded smoke bombs
and sang Nazi songs. Order was re-
stored at Vienna institutions only
after officers had abandoned clubs
for sabers.
It was pointed out in political
quarters that Austria is bound to
the friendly policy of the League of
Nations, but nevertheless many said
that Germany in quitting the League
and the disarmament conference had
typified emotions of nations defeated
in the war, including Austria.
There were rumors that Hungary
would leave the League. An inter-
view in Vianna newspapers quoted
Stephan Friedrich, former Hungar-
ian premier, as saying that there is
justification for such action.

West Virorinia
Steel Strike Is
Called At End
(By Associated Press)
The national labor board an-
nounced the settlement of the Weir-
ton, W. Va., steel strike yesterday as
sporadic disorders occurred in other
strike-troubled sectors.
Senator Wagner, chairman of the
board, said the Weirton Steel Co.
workers would return immediately
without discrimination.
The settlement is expected to bring
peace to a community where police
used tear gas bombs on several oc-
casions to quell pickets who sought to
prevent workers from entering the
steel company's plant. It came at
the end of a meeting at which both
sides presented their views.
Meanwhile pickets and workers in
a Los Angeles garment strike were
separated by police and a brief skir-
mish in which 500 persons engaged.
The authorities arrested two women
and a man on charges of disturbing
the peace.
The homes of two miners in
Wilkes-Barre, Pa., were damaged by


City To Pay
Welfare Staff,
Council Votes
Measure Is Approved By
Margin Of 8 To 1; Only
Opponet Is Meyer
End Of Relief Work
Feared By Mayor
Common Council Changes
Decision After Pleas By
Campbell And Lucas
A plea by Mayor Robert A. Camp-
bell, and a statement by E. E. Lucas,
president of the Common Council,
that "there will be no money for
welfare tomorrow" stampeded coun-
cil members to a reconsideration of
their earlier vote and the acceptance
finally of a request asking the city
to pay the welfare personnel's sal-
For a heated 15 minutes at the
meeting last night it appeared that
Ann Arbor would reject the request
of the Washtenaw County Relief
Committee, until Mayor Campbell
predicted that as a result of the
council's attitude he would have to
tell the poor people today "to go
home and starve or freeze --what-I
ever you will.'
Previous to Mayor Campbell's ex-
temporaneous speech, several of the
aldermen had objected to the propo-
sal. When the first vote was taken
the dissenters won, 5 to 4.
When the result of this vote was
announced, Mayor Campbell arose
and addressed the council. "I wish
you understood what you have done,"
he said. "Every person, children and
women included, is taken off the
welfare by this vote. We haven't a
nickel to pay them. We must ac-
cept the county committee's propos-
al. You are saying to this city's
poor, 'We won't help you.' You are
putting something on the city which
will hurt it badly."
This speech of the mayor brought
a reconsideration of the vote and a
recess for the objectors to discuss the
matter among themselves and with
the mayor. At the end of this dis-
cussion, the committee's recommen-
dation was accepted, 8 to 1, Alder-
man Donald Meyer of the second
ward still objecting.
Whether the council's refusal to
accept the recommendation would
have resulted as disastrously as the
mayor and the council president pre-i
dicted was open to some doubt, but
only Alderman Leigh Young, of the
sixth ward, who favored the recom-
mendation, raised that point. He
suggested that even if the city didn't
accept the recommendation of the
committee, the committee would take
over all welfare work today. Inas-
much as the city was dropping the
welfare work anyway, he said, the
situation would be just the same.
As the matter now stands, the
Washtenaw County Welfare Relief
Committee will take over the relief
work in this city today, and a prob-
lem which has vexed the city for
nearly three years will be passed out
of Ann Arbor's hands.
Discover Plots Of
Nazis In Austria,

VIENNA, Oct. 16.-()-The dis-
covery of an alleged armed plot to
deliver the Linz garrison to the Nazis
and the secret circulation of new so-
cialist orders to prepare for a general
strike climaxed a feverish 24-hours
today which began with nation-wide
Nazi rioting in universities.
A score of Hitlerites, including first
lieutenant Franz Fritsch of the Aus-
trian army, a former artillery ser-
geant, and a reserve officer, were ar-
rested in connection with the report-
ed conspiracy.
An official communique said con-
spirators had completely worked out
a plan to take the Linz barracks by
surprise. Charges of high treason
were brought against the arrested

Class To Meet Today,
Freshmen Tomorrow
Underclassmen Will
Battle On Saturday
Cane Spree, Flag Rush,
Pillow Fight Included
On Morning's Program
First actual organization of mem-
bers of the sophomore class for the
Fall Games will be carried out at
4:30 p. . today at the Union, ac-
cording to Lewis Kearns, '35, who
is in charge of the events for the
Union. Tomorrow night freshmen
will gather at the same place to con-
solidate their class. At both meet-
ings captains for the games will be
selected and plans for the various
events made.
Included in the games, which will
begin at 10 a. m. Saturday, Oct. 21,
on South Ferry Field, are the cane
spree, the flag rush, and the pillow
fight, the hog-tying contest having
been dropped from the original plans.
The latter will be held in connection
with the Spring Games.
Scoring of points for the three
parts of the games has not been
definitely decided as yet, Kearns said.
A cup which was won last year by
Delta Chi fraternity for having the
largest percentage of its freshman
pledges at the games will be given
under the same basis this year. In
order to have permanent possession
of the cup a fraternity must win it
three times.
Members of the two classes will
meet at different points before go-
ing to the field, the first year men
at 9:30 a. n. at the Union and the
sophomores at the same time at Wa-
terman Gymnasium. At this time
they will be painted to designate
their membership in one of the two
groups -freshmen green and sopho-
mores red. No men will be allowed
to take part in the games without
this insignia, Kearns said.
Representatives of the Union and
of the 'Undergraduate Council will
be on hand at the games to exercise
general supervision, while the actual
judging will be done by members of
the "M" Club.
Handbills containing threats to
grind the class of '36 into "a mangy,
shapeless pulp," on the traditional
Black Friday before the class games
were being circulated by freshmen
last night.
Calling the sophomores "contemp-
tible cads and insipid, ignoble in-
fants," the bills declared that they
would be "slaughtered" by "that in-
tellectually supreme organization, the
class of 1937."

Municipal League Obtains
Grant To Enable It To

A considerable grant of money has

been made to the Michigan Munic-
ipal League for the purpose of "as-
sisting smaller communities in pre-
senting applications to the Advisory
Board on Public Works," according to
Harold Smith, director of the league.
The sum came from a large foun-
dation, the name of which was not
The difficulties which smaller com-
munities have experienced in trying
to comply with the regulations set up
by the advisory board in applying for
funds for public works have made it
necessary for the municipal league
to help them, Mr. Smith stated last
Because smaller towns, handi-
capped by the lack of competent city
engineers and attorneys, have lagged
behind the larger cities in applying
for public works aid, it has been
found advisable to hire such officers
to prepare their applications for
them, he said.

Replacements Needed
For Some Band Posts
Although the Varsity Band has
reached its full size for the season,
there are still openings for re-
placement players, it was an-
nounced late yesterday by Prof.
Nicholas D. Falcone, director.
There are vacancies in virtually
every section of the band, the di-
rector said, though he is particu-
larly desirous of obtaining replace-
ments in the cornet, bass, horn,
and trombone sections.
Freshmen who are members of
the R.O.T.C. and any interested
sophomores and upperclassmen
were urged yesterday to call the
director at his home, dial 6695,
during the noon hour and make
appointments for tryouts.

The October issue of the new Gar-

The Gargoyle thatdwill make its
debug Thursday is different from
anything that has ever appeared on
the campus in the way of a humor-
ous publication, Powers said. It
marks a change from the Gargoyle
of former years not only in editorial
style and size, but in general make-
up as well. Every issue of the new
magazine will contain approximately
40 pages.
A photographic motif will be fea-
tured throughout this year's Gar-
goyle. Among the innovations to be
employed are photographic heads.
These will give a pictorial idea of the
content of each of the department6,
They were made by members of the
Gargoyle staff in a Detroit studio and
first proofs turned out exceptionally
well, according to Powers.
Direct color photography, a fea-
ture that has been made possible
only by recent developments in the
field of commercial photography will
be offered to Gargoyle readers this
year. A picture has been made of
the inside northeast corner of the
Law Quadrangle, showing a corner
of the Law Club, and it will be given
a prominent place in the first issue.
The radio and phonograph depart-
ment has beeen entirely revamped.
Each month a nationally-known
dance orchestra will be featured in
this section with pictures of the
leader and the assembled -band and
short biographies of each.

ernment in connection with the labor
aspects of the problem of rehabilitat-
ing the railroads and effecting econ-
omies in transportation costs, was

made known yesterday.
Professor Sharfman went to Wash-
ington Friday, upon call of Joseph B.
Eastman, Federal co-ordinator of
transportation. He returned again
late " Sunday, saying that further
meetings of the advisory group will
be held from time to time.

liquor control statute for Michigan
today turned to the administration
for recommendations.
Rep. Carl F. DeLano, of Kalama-

the governor will be asked to appear
before the group, probably tomorrow,
when he is expected to return to the
capital from a hunting expedition in
the northern part of the state.
Given the opportunity, Governor
Comstock is expected to break a long
