The results of the examination,

NEW YORK, Oct. 18.-(P)--Alfred
E. Smith has a cold - and political
observers were running a fever to-
day trying to figure out the probable
effect on Tammany Hall's health.'
The men of Tammany gathered
Tuesday night for the traditional
"ratification rally" designed to start
,Mayor John P. O'Brien's campaign off
with a bang and repulse the double
threat of Fusion and the Recovery
party to drive the Tiger from power.
Smith -for the first time in years
-was absent.
The word was passed around
that he was "home in bed with a
The New York Times interpreted
his absence as "a blow" to the lead-
ership of John F. Curry, Tammany
chief, and John H. McCooey, the
"Hall's" Brooklyn ally.
The absence, the paper said, was
accepted by observers as confirma-
tion of the reports that the former
governor had refused to yield to
Tammany's pleas that he come to
the rescue.
Senators Robert F. Wagner and
Royal S. Copeland also were miss-
ing from the platform, and an-
nouncements at the hall said pres-
sure of official business kept them
Those who attended heard a de-
nunciation of bossism, uttered from

political leadership and said his
nomination as regular Democratic
candidate for controller was a re-
buke to party leaders.
Prial, a former deputy controller,
was denied designation as the party's
nominee for controller. He ran any-
way and beat "the machine." In his
speech, he endorsed Mayor O'Brien,
as having been in no way responsible
for present conditions.

America Must Not
Duplicate Foreign
NEW YORK, Oct. 18.--QP)-New-
ton D. Baker of Cleveland, former
Secretary of War, asked today on be-
half of the national conference of
Jews and Christians that "the out-
break of intolerance abroad not be
duplicated in this country."
"Whatever may be the concern of
any members of the conference per-
sonally about the overseas situation,"
his statement continued, "the confer-
ence itself expresses no opinion and
seeks to have no influence beyond the
happy example we hope America will
set in being a country in which
neither race nor religion are allowed
to be used for political or economic
"We thank God for the Constitu-
tion of the United States and our
whole object is to make its great prin-
ciples and guarantee effective laws
not only in the courts, which enforce
them, but in the hearts and minds
of our own people."

B.B. Kelley Outlines Discussions
Held By Interfraternity Council

Rushing, scholarship, bad debts to
members, and supervision of fresh-I
men were among the many fraternity
problems which were discussed by the
delegates to the annual Undergrad-
uate Council of the National Inter-
fraternity Conference, according to
Bethel B. Kelley, '34, who has just
returned from Chicago, where the
sessions were held last week.
"No system of rushing seems to be
giving less trouble than ours," Kelley
stated yesterday. "Many schools have
a great deal of trouble with the dif-
ficulty of preventing houses from
pledging their men before they get
to school, while others have to com-
bat the evils of sand-bagging and
Discipline of freshmen classes was
discussed at great length by the dele-
gates, many of whom expressed an
opinion that the common methods of
using a paddle or a tub of ice-water
could easily be supplanted by a more
effective method of self-discipline
and self-criticism among the mem-
bers of the class themselves, Kelley'
Scholarship of fraternity houses,
always under scrutiny at such meet-
ings, can be raised by the appoint-
ment of "resident advisers," many of
the delegates disclosed. Men from
schools where such a plan is in oper-
ation appear to be more than satis-
fied with the results, Kelley said,
adding that he did not believe that
such a move is necessary at Michigan.
On the question of the best means
of preventing and collecting bad debts.
of fraternities, Kelley said that sev-
eral methods were reported by vari-
ous delegates. One of the most effec-
tive is that of preventing the man
who is delinquent from receiving any
'credit until the bill is paid.
At one school, the amount that is
delinquent after a certain length of
time is added pro rata to the bills of
the other members of the house, Kel-

Cork Co

ley declared. The purpose is, he said,
to keep the seniors from passing those
bad debts to the incoming classes.
Credit ratings by local merchants
have a good effect, keeping frater-
nity houses in line as far as meeting
their obligations promptly is con-
cerned, Kelley said.
On the question of whether a dis-
pute between a fraternity and a
member who owes a bill to it will
weaken the friendship which has
been formed, Kelley said that the
sentiment among the delegates indi-
cated that it was easily worth the
trouble to force collection..
Rendezvous Club Plans
Organization For Year
Fifty-five freshman students who
attended the Freshman Rendezvous
Camp the week-end before Orienta-
tion Week met Monday night in the
Upper Room at Lane Hall and for-
mulated plans for organization for the'
year. It was decided that the ex-
ecutive duties of the Rendezvous
Club would be handled by an execu-
tive committee of five. Those selected
were Paul Forth, chairman of the
committee, a n d William Barndt,
Hugh Weld, Thomas Ayres, Paul
Simpson, and Donald Graves. All
these boys are freshmen.
As a first indication that theirs
would be a lasting organization, the
Rendezvous formed an orchestra. It
is plan'hed also to organize a singing
club in the near future. Group
parties have been planned and it is
also the intention of the club to back
the Union to the limit in the pushing
of the Fall Games.

College German School three years
ago has actually changed the little
town of Bristol, Vermont into a Ger-
man hamlet.


Experiments In
Splitting Atoms
Experiments on the disintegration
of atoms, employing a two-million
volt electrostatic machine, are being
continued this fall under the direc-
tion of Prof. J. M. Cork of the physics
department. The generator was set up
last June and work on it during the
summer was confined largely to ob-
taining its more efficient operation,
according to Professor Cork.
At present, a new discharge tube
is being attached to the machine.
This tube is for the purpose of speed-
ing up ions till they attain such a
high velocity and a large amount of
energy that it is hoped they will dis-
integrate the atoms which they
The electrostatic machine, which
is one of the few of its type in exist-
ence, consists of a six foot sphere
placed on the top of an eight foot
insulated tube. Belts of paper running
up through this tube convey a con-
tinuous electric charge to the sphere's
interior, which develops a high volt-
age limited only by its radius.

WASHINGTON, O c t. 18. - OP) -
France, s t i r r e d deeply by Ger-
many's withdrawal from the dis-
armament conference and resigna-
tion from the League of Nations, has
probably the world's premier mili-
tary establishment.
Although Russia has a large ac-
tive land force and three times as
many men in its trained reserve,
military experts rate the French
army a considerably stronger war
machine due to its superior artillery
and training and its better supply
On the basis of numbers of well
trained and equipped land fighting
forces, Italy probably ranks second
to France in military effectiveness.
Latest figures available at the war
department show France has an
army of 607,000 actives and a trained
reserve of 6,328,000 men while Italy
has 457,000 actives and 6,017,000
reservists. The Soviet actives num-
ber 848,000 and the trained reservists
reach the tremendous total of 18,-
Spain Ranks High
The young republic of Spain sur-
prisingly ranks next to "the big
three" in numerical strength of its
organized forces, there being 209,000
actives and 2,115,000 reserves in the
land once famed for its conquista-
dors. Then comes Japan with a total
force of 2,117,000, followed by Po-
land with 1,977,100.
The Rumanian army has 244,850

Czech f o r c e s total 1,627,000 and
those of Yugoslavia, 1,447,724.
Limited By Treaty
Germany's army is limited by the
Versailles Treaty to an active force
of 100,500 with no trained reserve.
The French claim, however, that the
Germans have been secretly rearm-
ing and that the Nazi storm troops
form a formidable reserve.
Besides its famous network of fort-
resses along the Franco-German bor-
der, France has an air force that is
by far the largest in the world. Its
fighting airplanes number upward of
5,000. The Polish air force is said to
be the strongest in central Europe.
The treaty of Versailles prohibits
Germany from having military air
forces of any description.

Back In News
OKLAHOMA CITY, Oct. 18.-(P)-
Charles "Pretty Boy" Floyd, a name
pretty well crowded out of Oklahoma
crime news by "Machine Gun" Kelly
and Harvey Bailey, was back today,
linked with a story of wounds and a
spurned offer to surrender.
Gov. William H. "Alfalfa Bill" Mur-
ray said the desperado had offered
to "give himself up" through an emis-
sary after a state operative had
wounded him in a gunfight near Col
gate, Okla., several weeks ago. But the
surrender offer, said Murray, was on
the condition the state would not
seek the death penalty.
"I couldn't make a deal like that,"
the governor added. "We'll get him,
The governor disclosed neither the
name of the emissary nor the officer
wvho wounded Floyd.
Although he was blamed for the
murder of Erv Kelly, former McIn-
tosh county sheriff, and a wave of
bank holdups in 1931 and 1932, little
has been heard from Floyd since
George Birdwell, his chief lieutenant,
was shot to death in a bank raid in
the all-Negro community of Boley a
year ago.
