on today toward its mass mobiliza-

for all trades to agree upon banish-

Simultaneously, to get into opera-
tion Monday morning the retail code,
its biggest single one, NRA issued a
series of interpretations, reduced to
simplest terms, so that every store-
keeper might get the requirements of
the compact straight without delay.
The Ford case subsided after yes-
terday's crackling statements that
the Dearnborn magnate would be
prosecuted promptly if he failed to
comply with the automobile code.
Hugh S. Johnson had nothing to say
on the subject.
Without announcement he effected
his promised trade-in of the Lin-

problems, both national and interna-
tional, will be discussed in a series
of lectures to be given by prominent
speakers before members of the Law-
yers' Club, it was announced yester-
day by James H. Denison, '35L, pub-

Lounge of the Lawyers' Club.
As former head of the automobile;
city's law enforcement organization
and a practicing attorney of Detroit,
Mr. Watkins is acquainted with the
problems which confront the police1
departments of large cities and is also
qualified to speak on the theoretical,
aspects of the law, having studied;
in Europe as a Rhodes scholar from;
Michigan. His lecture is expected to
deal with the many fascinating and

The purpose of this series is to
give the law students an opportunity
to hear men who are authorities in
those fields with which the law is
closely inter-related in practical life,
and to enable the entire law school
to be more definitely informed on
the contemporary probeims which
confront the practicing lawyer or
legal theorist.
The lectures, which will be open to
all those connected with the Law
School, including members and non-
members of the Lawyers' Club, will
all be given in the Lounge of the
Lawyers' Club.

Will Be Held
Gramercy To Direct Fall
Production; A Mystery
May Be Presented
Tryouts for the play which will in-
augurate Comedy Club's approaching
theatre season have been announced
for Tuesday andnWednesday eve-
nings, it was announced last night
by Clarence W. Moore, '34, president.
The cast will be selected on Wednes-
day and rehearsals for the play,
which will run during the week-end
of the Minnesota game, will begin at
once. At the same time the various
production committees will be ap-
Although the selection has been
definitely made, the choice for the
opening show is not yet certain. It
is expected that a modern comedy
of the higher type written by one
of the greatest present day play-
wrights will be presented. However,
there is a possibility that one of the
later mystery plays, new to Ann Ar-
bor, will be the ultimate selection.
The show will open on Thursday,
Nov. 16, and will run through Satur-
day, Nov. 18.
Edwin Gramercy, director of the
fall offering, has been for the past
few weeks a member of the company
under Robert Henderson at the Cass
Theatre in Detroit. He completes his
work there tonight in the final per-
formance of Novello's "A Party," and
will then come directly to Ann Ar-
bor to begin his work here. Gra-
mercy has long been connected with
Little Theatre groups, as well as with
the professional theatre, and the op-
portunity of once again seeing his
work done in Ann Arbor should
arouse much interest among those
who remember his earlier work here.

Vociferous Canines
NearlyHalt 'Uncle
Tom' By Fighting
Prominent campus dogs recently
made their dramatic debut on the
stage of the Lydia Mendelssohn The-
atre, starring in Play Production's
"Uncle Tom's Cabin."
One of the most famous scenes of
the play, "Eliza crossing the ice, pur-
sued by hounds," demanded dogs,
preferably hound dogs. Not only were
the appearances of the dogs neces-
sary, but to add color to the melo-
dramatic scene, they had to bark.
Bookholders and prop girls scoured
the campus for canine actors, and
the opening night seven dogs promi-
nent on campus were brought back-
stage and tethered. It was necessary
to put each dog in a corner by him-
self, to be sure that there would be
no barking before their cue was an-
At the beginning of last scene of
act I, six of the dogs were brought
together behind scenes on the stage,
while one of the dogs waited on the
other side of the stage to cross over
the "ice."
At the signal, actors, stage hands,
script girls, each holding a dog, be-
gan to excite the dogs to a fighting
temper, by "sicing" them on each
other. From then on, it was a con-
test to see which one could bark
the longest and loudest, as Eliza
crossed the river. Following close
on her heels were the men, and the
one dog, who by that time, was in a
frenzy to join the excitement on the,
other side of the stage.
At the Friday night showing the
first crossing was navigated success-
fully, but when the men turned to
recross, the hound would have none
of it, practically dragging the men
and scenery off the stage. The quick-
thinking stage manager and curtain
puller dropped the curtain, as the
men floundered on the ice.
The greatest difficulty came after
the scene. The dogs liked the game
so well, that they continued for sev-
eral minutes, almost drowning out
the music from the pit.
Word has peen received here of the
death Thursday morning of Herman
C. Skoog, '34SM, at his home in Lud-
ington, Mich. He had been ill for
several weeks.

Knowledge Of Riot
Campus Radicals Hint Of
Detroit Disapproval Of
Pace, Dunn Trials ,
A threat upon the person of Pros-
ecutor Albert J. Rapp, by un uniden-
tified telephone messenger, rumors
that a number of truckloads of De-
troit Communists would enter Ann
Arbor to stage a demonstration when
John Pace, radical leader, came up
for trial, and the beginning of the
trial of Brent Dunn, alleged mur-
derer, heighten the in erest attend-
ing tomorrow's session f Washtenaw
Circuit Court.
The threat of bodily harm was
received by Rapp Fri ay night. A
voice over the telephone told him
that "You're getting too cocky. You'll.
never be in court Monday to see
the Fahndrich sentence." The inci-
dent was reported to Sheriff Jacob
Andres, who immediately sent a deF-
uty to guard the prosecutor. Rapp
said he did not take the threat ser-
iously, and no attempt to carry out
implications of the telephone mes-
sage had occurred last night.
Two Men Escape
Some credence was given to the
message when it was recalled that
Gerald Gahendrich w4 only one of
three men who robbed the home of,
Forest Chase in Mila , March 19.
The two other men inVolved in the
affair escaped and have never been
apprehended. Fahendrich was found
guilty of robbery armed Friday after-
noon by a jury which had been out
27 hours. It was only a shortntime
after the jury reported that Rapp re-
ceived the telephone c.He &e-
deavored to trace the call, but was
The rumor of Communists com-
ing to Ann Arbor for a demonstra-
tion when John Pace appeared in,
court came from campus radical
sources. Groups on campus more or
less connected with the Communist
Party said they were positive the
demonstration would be staged. Offi-
cers at the police station last night
said they had heard nothing of the
rumor and were inclined to discount
the entire affair.
Trespass Charge
Pace was arrested for trespass, and
found guilty before Judge Jay Payne.
He acted as his own lawyer and ap-
pealed his case, which sent it to the
circuit court. He is a well-known De-
troit radical, and has led several
agitations in that city. He was in-
strumental in the famed bonus
march on Washington, heading the
Communist division of the "army"
and coming into frequent dispute
with Walter Waters, recognized
leader of the non-Communist fac-
The Dunn trial is scheduled to
begin as soon as the Pace case has
finished. Dunn was one of two men
who police alleged slayed John Rein-
hart. The other man, George Weimer,
admitted his guilt before Judge
George W. Sample and was sent to
Marquette Prison for life imprison-
ment. Dunn claimed he was not

guilty. George Meader will act as
Dunn's attorney.

Varsity Band electrified the crowd
at the Michigan-Chicago football
game here today with a performance
that completely eclipsed anything
Michigan crowds have seen this sea-
Before thousands of cheering Wol-
verine rooters and enthusiastic Chi-
cagoans the Fighting Hundred turned
out five successive between-halves
formations that repeatedly brought
the Michigan fans to their feet.
To the strains of the "Victors," the
Michigan Band stepped off at the
half spelling "MICHIGAN" the full
length of the field. A giant "C" fol-
lowing broke up into a "C" and "M"
and the unit countermarched to form
a large pennant with a "C" in the
center. The "C" changed to an "M"
in the pennant and as the band
countermarched at the end of the
field, the hundred blue-coats strode
half way down the fiield in the mili-
tary "goose-step," that gained such
applause at the Cornell game in Ann
Arbor, and right faced in the center
of the field to form the traditional

The Chicago pep band, snappy in
its white flannels and maroon sweat-
ers, formed a block "M" before the
game, playing the "Victors," and then:
swung into "Wave the Flag for Old
Chicago," forming a huge "C." Then
a vocal arrangement of "Who's
Afraid of the Big, Bad Wolf?" sung
through the little white megaphones,
which are part of the Chicago uni-
form, evoked the crowd's applause
and the Maroon band closed its per-
formance with the Chicago Alma
A feature of the Varsity Band's
performance was the playing of the

Johnson Bans McKee
Blue Eagle Posters
WASHINGTON, Oct. 28.-(P)-
In a telegram to Joseph H. Mc-
Kee, candidate for mayor of New
York, Administrator Hugh S.
Johnson today said that use of the
NRA insignia on political posters
"is unauthorized."
It resulted from a message from
Fiorello La Guardia, rival candi-
date on the Fusion ticket, com-
plaining against McKee displaying
the Blue Eagle and saying he was
taking unfair advantage of the
Roosevelt recovery program by
calling himself the "recovery"
Johnson's message read:
"The use of NRA insignia or let-
ters on a political poster in such
manner as to tend to identify it
with a particular political faction
is unauthorized and contrary to
NRA Circular Number 1, July 23;
interpretation of Sept. 27; execu-
tive order of Oct. 14, and regula-
tion of Oct. 17.

Wolverines Down Maroons

28-0 Score; Michigan
nd Thrills 25,000 Fans

Everhardus, Renner, And
Oliver Star In One-Sided
Contest At Chicago
First Ten Minutes
Decide Remainder
Half Ends As Fay Takes
Pass From Renner To
Three Yard Line
(Special to The Daily)
Oct. 28-Displaying a powerful and
versatile attack, Michigan's varsity
eleven scored four. touchdowns to
crush Chicago's Maroons here 28 to
0 this afternoon.
The first ten minutes of the con-
test saw Fay and Everhardus speed
over the Chicago goal line for scores,
while Renner and Oliver were large-
ly responsible for the two tallies of
the final period. Everhardus kicked
two of the goals, with Petoskey and
Chapman responsible for one each.
Renner and Oliver plunged to the
third score, while the final marker
was hung up as Renner shot a beau-
tiful pass from Chicago's 33 yard
line to Westover right at the center
of the goal line.
Team Looks Good
The entire Michigan team looked
good in the first quarter, especially
Capt. Stan Fay and Herm Everhar-
dus. After Chicago had failed to
make headway on its first-few plays,
Berwanger punted. to Everhardus,
who brought the ball up to his 42
yard line in two successive plays.
Then Whitey Wistert for the first
time this season completed one of
his long heaves to Westover on Chi-'
cago's 9 yard line. Everhardus ran
for a five yard gain and then Fay
drove through the center of the line
for the remaining 4 yards to a touch-
down. Everhardus kicked the point,
making the score 7 to 0 for Michigan.
The second score was almost en-
tirely all-Everhardus. The flashy half-
back made 14 yards on three succes-
sive plays, going over for the touch-
down standing up. Again he booted
the extra point.
Passes Net Touchdown
The remaining scores were gained
late in the fourth period, largely as
results of the belated Maroon at-
tempt to score on passes. After Oliver
intercepted Sahlin's pass at midfield,
the Wolverines marched down the
field to the 11 yard line, losing the
ball there on downs. A fumble and
short punt by Chicago gave West-
over the ball on the 45 yard line and
he ran it back 32 yards to the 29
yard line.Two line bucks by Oliver
and Renner took the ball to the 8
yard line, from where Renner dashed
over for the score behind perfect in-
terference. Ted Petoskey then kicked
the goal to make the score Michigan
21, Chicago 0.
The final touchdown was made
from Chicago's 33 yard line where
Remias was downed after intercept-
ing Berwanger's pass. Renner threw
a 33 yard pass to Westover as he
crossedthe goal line to score. Ted
Chapman place-kicked the extra
point, the score becoming 28 to 0
which stood for the remainder of
the game.

Sands Will Emphasize Seven
Periods In American Theatre

British Hold Troops Prepared
To Subdue Arabian Uprising

Seven outstanding periods in the
development of the American thea-
tre will be brought to life before an
Ann Arbor audience when Dorothy
Sands, called "the supreme contem-
porary mistress of imitation," pre-
sents "Our Stage and Stars" at 8
p. m. Wednesday in Hill Auditorium
on the Oratorical Association lecture
"Our Stage and Stars," for which
Miss Sands is producer, playwright,
and cast, will take its opening scene
from "The Contrast," a play of the
post-Revolutionary theatre,and re-
vie the American stage down to the
movies of the present day.
Following Royall Tyler's "The Con-

as "The Marchioness" in John

After a period of intermission Miss
Sands will return to take the part of
Ethel Barrymore as she appeared in
her debut as Madame Trentoni in
Clyde Fitch's "Capt. Jinks of the
Horse Marines," a play typical of the
"romantic '70's."
Lillian Russell's debut at Tony
Pastor's, about 1880, forms the fifth
number on the program, and Eu-
gene Walter's "The Easiest Way,"
produced by David Belasco in 1909,
represents the realistic drama of the
twentieth century.

for Palestine in the event they are
needed to put down Arab anti-Jew-
ish rioting.
A squadron of Royal Air Force
planes has already left for Palestine.
A mob stormed a prison at Nablus
today and freed prisoners lodged
there, said advices from Palestine.
The situation at Nablus had been
reported tense after Arabs had de-
clared a general strike.
A company of Seaforth Highland-
ers is stationed at Nablus but re-

British troops and police were mob-
ilized at strategic points in all the
principal towns of Palestine following
riots yesterday in which upwards of
a score were killed.
The ways of the East, which few
Europeans ever understand, made it
difficult to determine how wide-
spread and well organized the Arab
movement was. There were indica-
tions that it had aroused sympa-
thetic agitation beyond Palestine in
both Syria and Transjordania.
