Confesses To Spying

Wife Involved As

By Soviet For Sabotage,
Officials Charge
HELSINGFORS, Finland, Nov. 10
- WP)- Chief Riekki of the Finnish
Secret Service said today that Arvid
Jacobson, former mathematics teach-
er of Northville, Mich., had made a
full confession of activities as a spy
for Russia.
Riekki said his case was complete
and that Mrs. Jacobson had under-
taken an important part in the al-
leged espionage.
The secret service said Russian
agents were recruiting unemployed
men and women in the United States
and sending them as spies into Rou-
mania, Poland, Finland, and other
European countries, giving them ad-
vances of $500. He said Jacobson
was thus recruited.
Mr. and Mrs. Jacobson were ar-
rested Nov. I in Finland.
Jacobson graduated from the
School of Education in 1928 after
earning his way through school by
working at a lumber camp. He is
said to have been a hard-worker
while in the University.
After his graduation he was a
teacher for three years at Northville,
Mich., where he became well-known
in the community. H. Amerman,
superintendent of public instruction
there, has characterized him as be-
ing "a very quiet sort of man with
little to say at any time."
No international complications
were expected to result from Jacob-
son's confession, although he is a
United States citizen, having been
born in Watton, Barega County, Up-
per Peninsula.
Detroit police, when asked about
his activities, disclosed that he had
been registered with them as a mem-
ber of the Communist party and that
he had been a speaker at-several
Communist rallies in Detroit.

Epstein Traces Objections
To Social Legislation In
Last 100 Years
E. A. Guest Recites
Some Of His Poems
Delano Explains L i qu o r
Control Bill Now Before
State Legislature
Inherited fear of moral degenera-
tion as a result of too much govern-
ment protection was cited last night
by Abraham Epstein, noted social
scientist, as the chief force opposing
social legislation. Mr. Epstein deliv-
ered the principal address at the final
dinner session of the University Press
Club which concludes its three-day
meeting here today.
Pointing out that the objections
which were heard when agitation for
the 12-hour day was first begun in
1836 are no different from those
which are now heard against social
legislation, Mr. Epstein traced the
successive objections to the move-
ments favoring compulsory educa-
tion, workmen's compensation, moth-
ers' pensions, and now unemployment
Contradiction In Theories 1
There is a direct contradiction in
the theories of those who are against
social legislation, Mr. Epstein said.
"When the income tax was urged, it.
was said that we should not take
money away from the rich because
it would make them lose their incen-
tive and become lazy. Now when com-
pulsory insurance is being advocated,
a similar charge is made - that if
you give a poor man money, it will
make him lazy."
The crowd of more than 200 prom-
inent editos from all parts of the
state was entertained earlier by Ed-
gar A. Guest, famed Detroit rhyme-
ster, who recited several-of his poems.
Kraus Gives Advice
Dean Edward H. Kraus of the Col-
lege of Literature, Science, and the
Arts made a short address of wel-
come to the guests of the University.
He was introduced by Prof. John L.
Brumm, head of the journalism de-
partment, which is sponsoring the
Schulyer Marshall, president of the
club, acted as toastmaster for the
dinner, and incidental music was of-
fered by Miss Thelma Newell, violin-
ist, and Miss Laura Whelan, pianist.
"We have presented a bill to the
State legislature which provides a
system of liquor control similar to
that of Ontario, that is through state1
stores," Charles F. Delano, chairman
of the Michigan Liquor Commission,
told members of the Press Club at;
their afternoon session dealing with:
the "Press in Relation to the Chang-
ing Social and Political Order" yes-,
terday at the Union. After investiga-i
tion of liquor control in many coun-a
tries, Mr. Delano stated that this sys-,
tem would undoubtedly be the best
for Michigan. ,

ment of sociology spoke on "Our

'Take No Action Before
Further Investigation,'
Advises B. B. Kelley
Some Houses Have
Already Paid Tax
If Tax Is Paid By Grocer,
Fraternities Do Not Have
To File statewents
Fraternities and sororities may be
able to avoid payment of the 3 per
cent State retail sales tax, in the
opinion of a promin7tfaculty mem-
ber whose name ha' been withheld
by the Interfraternity Council.
All houses were advised last night
by Bethel B. Kelley, '34, president of
the council, not to ppy the sales tax
until a further investigation of the
matter has been made. Kelley said
that the Council would obtain the
services of a lawyer within the near
future and would announce a definite
plan of action at. that time.
It was said, however, that some
houses have already filed their sales
tax papers with the State Board of
Tax Administration.
If a ruling to the effect that fra-
ternities are exempt from payment of
the State tax is obtained, it will re-
verse a statement of Sept. 30 made
by James E. Mogan, managing direc-
tor of the State board, in which he
said, "If the sorority or fraternity is
representing to the seller that they
are buying for resale, then they must
take out a license as , retailer, must
make a monthly retrn, and pay a
tax on that part of eir sales in ex-
cess of the statutory {xemption."
Local merchants wpich sell retail
have been allowing fraternities and
sororities a discount on the produce
which they buy for resale, on the
grounds that the tax is only ap-
plicable once.
An action of the.tate board last
month allowed houses to group their
returns for September and October
into one return, which was to have
been submitted by Nov. 15.

Iowa Vs. Michigan
Michigan has a great team. One of the greatest in foot-
ball history. It isn't one-man, or two-man, or four-man. It is
a team.
Its string of victories has been the result of the hardest
kind of training. Long hours have been put in on every
department of the game, from headwork to footwork, and
the result is as strong an aggregation as the country has seen.
But Iowa has a good team, too. Minnesota may have
beaten it, but everyone is agreed that Iowa is a powerful
For over a week the team has been in something of a,
slump. If it can come out of it, it will beat Iowa and probably
go on next week to take Minnesota. So the game this after-
noon means more than just Iowa vs. Michigan - the national 1
championship may well hang in the balance.,
Members of the team, we're for you. We know you're '

Railroad Cuts
Fares; A Price
Struggle Seen
Michigan Central To Run
New Commuter Train'
To Detroit
A price war between the Michigan
Central Railroad and the Blue Goose'
Bus Lines loomed as a distinct pos-
sibility last night as a result of the
railroad's announcement of reduced
fares for Ann Arbor-Detroit com-
The new railroad fare, which will
go into effect Monday, Nov. 20, will
be 50 cents for regular commuters
who purchase a 25 individual ride
book with a 30 day limit. Those who
wish to ride to Detroit and return
the same day may purchase a round
trip single ticket for $1.50. This is
30 cents lower than the bus fare for
the same distance.
At the bus terminus last night, it
was said that no word had been re-
ceived from the company's main of-
fice in Detroit about fare reductions,
but it was possible that some reduc-
tion to meet the railroad's challenge
would be forthcoming shortly.
For the transportation of commu-
ters a new gasoline and electric car
has been installed by the railroad.
The car-will seat about 40 passengers
and will make two trips daily be-
tween the cities. This will be in ad-
dition to the regular schedule of
The first train will leave Detroit
at 6:30 a. m. and will arrive in Ann
Arbor at 7:15 a. m. After a five
minute stop here it will leave again
for Detroit, arriving there at 8:10
a. m. The train will then leave there
after five minutes and get back here
at 9 a. m. It will then return to De-

Ice And Snow
Cause Of Many
Minor Crashes
One Pedestrian Breaks His
Wrist When Hit; Seven
Collisions In Two Days
Accidents on Ann Arbor streets,
caused mainly by icy pavements and
snow flurries which blinded, drivers,
continued yesterday and brought the
total number of car collisions in the
last two days up to seven.
Only one person, Mae McQueen,
720 Catherine St., was hurt seriously
enough to be taken to the hospital.
She suffered a fractured left wrist
and bruises when she was knocked
down while crossing East Huron
Street near the 300 block at 4:55 p.m.
She was taken to St. Joseph's
Mercy Hospital, where she was
treated and sent home. The car
which hit her was driven by Mrs.
F. E. Holley, 1418 Henry Street. Mrs.
Holley did not have a driver's license.
No arrest was made, police said, be-
cause police did not see her driving
without a license and no one had
filed a complaint against her.
J. Alonzo Daly, 15744 Dexter Boule-
vard, Detroit, escaped injury almost
miraculously at 6:40 p. m. when his
car, after hitting an auto driven by
James L. Hollway, 1328 Washtenaw
Ave., completely turned over. Daly
did not even receive a scratch. The
accident occurred at the cut-off and
South Main Street.
Earlier in the day two cars col- I
lided at the intersection of State,
Carey and Fuller Streets. John Hol-
'brook, of Chelsea, was driving on
Carey Street and collided with Wal-
ter Wagner, 1102 Prospect St. George
Peterson, 637 North 4th Ave., a
passer-by, was hit but received no
serious injury. Both cars were slight-'
ly damaged.
