On the eve of the traditional 30-

of Minnesota for possession of the
Little Brown Jug, famed replica of
Wolverine-Gopher battles since 1903,
one of the largest crowds in the his-
tory of Micligan football is expected
to gather tonight to spur the team
on to its fifth conference victory of
the season.
Students will demonstrate their
support of the 1933 football team
before the final home game of the
season when the team, its coaches,

Benny Oosterbaan, member of the
Varsity coaching staff, will not be on

Other speeches of the meeting will
be delivered by campus undergrad-

Undergraduate Council members in
charge of the meeting expressed the
hope last night that "every student
in the University, whether an under-
graduate or a student in one of the
advanced units, would attend the
meeting and lend full support to the
team which has taken a large stride
toward establishing one of the great-
est football records in the history of
the game,"
Prof. Sharma┬▒

New Committee
Prof. Jackson R. Sharman of the
School of Education has been ap-
pointed a member of a new national
committee on education, according to
word received here yesterday. Pro-
fessor Sharman's appointment was
announced in Washington by Dr.
Paul C. Stetson, superintendent of
schools in Indianapolis, Ind.
The education committee will meet
and report from Feb. 24 to March 1.
in Cleveland at the convention of

the department of superintendence.
"The- appointment of this commit-
tee is an important item in a funda-
mental reorganization of the conven-
tion plan followed by the educational
leaders in their national professional
organization for many years," Dr.
Stetson said. "The change was made
to extend greater responsibility to in-
dividual members in the department's
attempt to plan more effectively for

The second issue of Gargoyle,

than the initial' issue of the year,
it was announced at Gargoyle of-
fices last night.
A few hundred copies of the is-

in its lack of "slapstick" and ap-
peal to a greater maturity upon
the part of students, are still left

for the last time today.

last year. -Offcials of the club are
inviting all the seniors on the team,

In addition to members of the De-

Abandon Hope For
S. S. SaXilby Crew

doned today of rescuing the 27 men
in the crew of the British freighter
Saxilby, of whom nothing was seen
nor heard since their last despairing
SOS as they took to the boats of the
storm-battered vessel Wednesday
One by one searching vessels gave
up the quest after reaching the spot,
about 300 miles off the Irish coast,
from where the last signal came,
without finding a trace of the Saxilby

Expect Early
Of Russians
President Leaves Capital
Today After Final Parley
With Maxim Litvinov
U.S.-Russian Trade
Relations Discussed
Roosevelt Says That U. S.
Citizens In Russia Must
Have Religious Freedom
WASHINGTON, Nov. 16.--(1)-
Both from administration and Soviet
sources today came indications that
,n announcement on Russian recog-
nition by President Roosevelt was
close at hand.
The executive was expected to
2lear the way for the resumption of
jiplomatic relations with Russia be-
fore he leaves for Warm Springs, Ga.,
The White House today reiterated
hope for a successful conclusion
of the parleys with Maxim Litvinov,
the Soviet Commissar for Foreign
Affairs, before Mr. Roosevelt departs.
The visitor arranged to confer with
the President again late today or to-
Meanwhile, State Department offi-
cials who have been assisting in the
negotiations gave the impression that
an understanding had been reached.
May Delay Sailing
Members of the Soviet delegation
refused to comment, but it was
known that Litvinov was in an even
more genial humor than customary.
It was said, however, that it was un-
likely that he would leave the capital
in time to sail on the Paris tomor-
Future trade relations were known
to have figured in the Russo-Amer-
ican conversations, but the attitude
of Secretary Henry A. Wallace today
caused some doubt as to whether any
conclusion has been reached on im-
mediate deals.
The secretary of agriculture said
that he personally disapproved of a
long-term loan to Russia for the pur-
chase of American agricultural com-
modities so long as this country re-
tained its high tariff walls.
Other officials, however, who have
been more intimately in touch with
the trade negotiations, have favored
the extension of long-term credits to
the Soviet Government. Russia's rec-
ord for paying foreign obligations
contracted after the Communists
took power 16 years ago has been un-
usually good.
Debt Accord Indicated
A general understanding between
the President and Litvinov on the is-
sues involved in recognition would
mean, in the opinion of some offi-
cials, that satisfactory formulas had
been arrived at for handling debts,
propaganda and religious matters.
From the first, informed observers
have anticipated little trouble in dis-
posing of the latter two subjects. In
the past, Soviet officials have given
assurances that their government
would not carry on propaganda,
against other governments if the lat-
ter in turn would agree not to try
to undermine Communism in Russia.
President Roosevelt has insisted
that it be clearly understood that
American citizens in Russia have
complete freedom of worship. Mos-
cow has asserted that this freedom

is granted now.
Should Litvinov follow a well de-
fined- precedent, any agreement on
debts would extend only to further
negotiations after recognition was

Frances Perkins
WASHINGTON, Nov. 16- () -
Heartened by a labor department es-
timate that 85,000 additional per-
sons had returned to work last
month, the administration set to
work today on its plan to increase
the number to 4,000,000.
A White House conference, to be
presided over by Mrs. Franklin D.
Roosevelt, was called for next Mon-
day to formulate relief plans affect-
ing women and to consider ways of
finding them employment.
At the same time, Harry L. Hop-
kins, the relief administrator, made
public figures for 131 cities and ur-
ban counties, showing 1,485,634 fami-
lies were on relief rolls in October,
compared with 1,479,232 the previous

low-grade Texas cattle at a minimum
price of $1.75 per hundred pounds.
He said the meat would be processed

Campus To Ballot Today On
Ten Important Questions;

To Include All Schools

French Cabinet
Faces Downfall
On Budget Acts
Would Be Third One To
Be Overthrown For Same
PARIS, Nov. 16 - (A) - Premier
Albert Sarraut's cabinet, after 20
days of life, faced what a high offi-
cial called "certain overthrow" to-
night on budget-balancing proposals.
Two previous ministries have fallen
on measures publicly described as
imperatively needed to save the
French franc and France's gold.
Financial Minister Georges Bon-
net, meanwhile, warned that the fi-
nancial situation was becoming in-
creasingly grave and that a panic
might spread through the country if
the cabinet were defeated and the
budget-balancing attempts failed.
He pointed out that gold holdings
in the Bank of France were a little
more than 80 billion francs the week
ended Nov. 10, the lowest in 18
Denies Council
Seeks Control
Of Fraternities
Threaten Social Probation
For Houses Not Turning
In Monthly Statements
Denial of the charge that the bud-
gets for the semester and monthly
financial statements which all fra-
ternities are required to turn in are
primarily for the purpose of regu-
lating the houses was made yester-
day by Maxwell T. Gail, '34, secre-
tary-treasurer of the Interfraternity
Gail also delivered a threat of the
council Judiciary Committee of so-
cial probation for those houses which
fail to fill out the blanks by Thurs-
day which have been "in the hands
of house managers for several days."
The chief object in having houses
turn in these budgets is, according
to Gail, to bring to the attention of
the house president and the steward
the exact condition of the house fi-
nances at least once a month.
"The houses that keep a good ac-
count of their condition are rarely
the ones that are forced to close," he
said, "and we feel that the primary
purpose of this plan is to make
houses that have not been in the
habit of keeping accounts begin the
An extension of eight days is be-
ing allowed houses in turning in their
reports, which are ordinarily due on
the fifteenth of each month for the
month previous. Budgets for the se-
mester have been due for several
weeks, but will be acceptable along
with the monthly statements for Sep-
tember and October.
Although the meeting of the Ju-
diciary Committee has been definite-
ly set, it is understood that they will
meet to take action on the houses
which fail to comply with the rulings
on the matter of budgets and reports
some time after Thursday, the date
on which reports are due.

Singers Will Appear
During Half Saturday
The Michigan Singers will ap-
pear between the halves of the
Minnesota game, according to
Warren Mayo, '36E, president of
the Varsity Glee Club. Due to
the possibility of snow, the pre-
sentation was postponed last Sat-
urday by officials of the Varsity
Band and Glee Club.
All men interested are to as-
semble in front of the band seats
at the start of the intermission,
and are to leave their seats one
minute before the half ends.
More men are needed to complete
the full strength of the group,
Mayo said.
Scalpers Begin
Activities Early
For Next Game
Students Warned Sale Of
Tickets Is Illegal Under
State Law
Indications that the Minnesota-
Michigan football game Saturday will
be a sellout were evidenced yesterday
by the presence of out-of-town scalp-
ers on the campus.
The scalpers, presumably from De-
troit, were launching a concerted
drive to buy tickets from students at
the regular sale price to be resold
shortly' before the game at much
higher values. This was the first time
that scalpers had been seen in Ann
Arbor as early as the Wednesday be-
fore a contest. Scalping for the
Michigan-Ohio State game, which at-
tracte -over 93,000 spectators,- was
carried on later in the week.
The scalpers were in action both at
the Union and the Lawyers Club. At
the latter place they were canvass-
ing from room to room in an attempt
to gather a large number of student
tickets. Two men were stationed in
front of the Union, accosting students
as they entered.
Students were warned by author-
ities that the sale of their tickets is
illegal under State law. A much
greater amount of scalping has been
noted this year than in the recent

Program Likely To
Permanent Feature
National Policy

J. M. Synge's'Playboy Of The
Western World' Opens Toniioht

Government housing, at present an
emergency measure, is likely to be-
come a permanent feature of our
national social program because it
voices a general interest, Prof. Wells
I. Bennett of the College of Archi-
tecture told a radio audience last
He declared that there are unlim-
ited possibilities for social better-
ment and economic stability if the
ideals of adequate housing are ex-
pressed in sound planning, consis-
tently put into effect.
The quantity of housing thus far
built or likely to be built under priv-
ate enterprise is pitifully small com-
pared to the need, he said. Public
concern over the situation has been
increasing for some years, he said.
"Disease in the slums consumes on-
ly slum dwellers, but the organized
crime nurtured there strikes out at
all society and finally at government
itself. In every way poor housing is
unsocial and poor national economy,"
he declared.
Under the NIRA the urban hous-
ing problem will probably be at-
tacked in two ways: by improving the
existing city as a place to live and
by decentralization of the present
metropolitan center, he said.

"'Playboy of the Western World'

that to satirize the follies of human-

The plot centers about an Irish

soon as his story spreads through
the village he becomes a hero, he is
