Not Enter
Warns Germany That Ban
On Jews Must Be Lifted
If America Is To Enter
No Discrimination,
A. A. U. Demands
Resolution Is Adopted By
Unanimous Vote Of Con-
vention Of Association
PITTSBURGH, Pa., Nov. 20.- (I)
- The Amateur Athletic Union, most
powerful sports governing body in the
United States today warned Germany
that unless restrictions on Jewish
participation in the 1936 Olympic
games at Berlin are rescinded the
United States will not send a team
to the eleventh Olympics.
By an almost unanimous vote the
national convention of the associa-
tion adopted a resolution setting
forth its attitude and asked the
American delegates to the interna-
tional Olympic committee to apprise
that committee and the German
Olympic body of its stand.
A guarantee of no discrimination
against Jews by the Germa} delega-
tion to the last international Olympic
committee has been violated, the res-
olution said, "if not by direct restric-
tion, certainly indirectly by the with-
drawal from them of the rights of
German citizenship and of a reason-
able opportunity to train, prepare for
and take part in sports competition
in general and in the Olympic games
in particular."'
Unless this condition is changed,
"in fact as well as in theory, to per-
mit and encourage German athletes
of Jewish faith or heritage to train,
prepare for and participate in the
Olympic games of 1936," it continued,
neither the American Olympic asso-
ciation nor the members thereof will
certify any athlete of the United
States of America for competition in
the Olympic games of Berlin."
The resolution ended in a note of
conciliation, stating that it was not
prepared as "one of threat or bitter-
ness," but there was little mistaking
the temper of the delegates as they
gave a ringing chorus of "ayes" when
the question was put to a vote.

Committee To Announce
Price Scale For Annual
Dance At Later Date
A reduced J-Hop ticket price, not
fixed as yet, was unanimously ac-
cepted Sunday in the first meeting
of the 1934 J-Hop committee chair-
The primary reason for the price
reduction was the reduced budget
which provides ample room for a
lower-priced admission, committee-
men said.
However, the fact that the price
will be reduced is not an indication
that the tradition, prestige, and en-
joyment of the hop will be in any
way less than in former years, com-
mittee members stated
Announcements of t h e elected
committee chairmen were made yes-
terday by the general chairman,

Philip A. Singleton, '35E.
Charles Hewitt, '36L, was appoint-
ed as vice-chairman of the dance.

position of secretary. The sale of
tickets was given over to the direc-
tion of John Garrels, '35E, and Gale
Sterling, '35E.

tee. The floor committee will be un-

Report Settle I
Is Down Near
llowayN J
Began Balloon Ascension
Early Monday; Fordney,
Assistant, Is Alumnus
CHICAGO, Nov. 20.-(/P-- Chi-
cago sponsors of the Settle bal-
loon ascension tonight said they
received a report that the stra-
tosphere balloon was down in
New Jersey near Alloway.
AKRON, 0., Nov. 20 - (P) - As
Lieut. Commander Settle, who, with
his aide, left the Akron Airport at
9:27 a. m., announced by wireless
telephone that the gas in his huge
bag was beginning to contract, forc-
ing a descent, advices from Hagers-
town, Md., said that the silver ball
of the balloon was glistening in the
sunshine just north of the city.
The bag was headed in the direc-
tion of Philadelphia, traveling due
east over southern Pennsylvania.
The sun, which had expanded the
gas to permit the ascent into the
stratosphere, was shedding less heat
on the bag, and the resultant con-
traction of the bag had its immedi-
ate effect on the lifting capacity of
the hydrogen.
In a wireless-telephone conversa-
tion with Admiral King, of the Naval
Bureau of Aeronautics, Settle said:
"We're at the peak now, and I
think we'll start down."
Accompanying Lieutenant - Com-
mander T. G. W. Settle in his airtight
metal gondola as he floats far above
the earth in his second attempt to
reach the distant stratosphere is Maj.
Chester L. Fordney, a graduate of
the University engineering college in
the class of 1917.
Major Fordney was recently selec-
ted for the trip by Commander Set-
tle because of the expert technical
aid he has given him in preparation
for the ascent. For weeks the major
has been aiding in getting things in
condition for the trip.
In addition to assisting Settle in
planning the fight, Major Fordney
helped the balloonist save the gon-
dola from the hands of destructive
souvenir-hunters after the failure of
his first attempted ascent late last

Driving Privilege
To Football Games
Students may drive to out-of-town
football games from their home
towns without violating the provi-

Bursley, dean of students, stated yes-
"If a student drives from his home
town with the knowledge and con-
sent of his parents and does not
drive in Ann Arbor or the immediate
vicinity, it will not be a matter of
immediate concern to the Universi-

This modification, the first that
has been made in several years in
the automobile regulation, is a
change from the old rule which made

Will Talk At Session Of
League Chapter Tonight
The second in a series of open
forums under the sponsorship of the
Ann Arbor Chapter of the League of
Nations Association will be held at 8
p. m. tonight in Room 100, Hutchins
Hall, with Prof. DeWitt H. Parker,
chairman of the philosophy depart-
ment, Prof. John Dawson of the Law
School, and Prof. James K. Pollock
of the political science department
According to officials of the asso-
ciation's local chapter, the principle
object of the meeting tonight will be
to obtain discussion from the audi-
ence on the various viewpoints of
French and German foreign policy,
Germany's break with the League,
and her recent withdrawal from the
World Disarmament Conference.
The psychological concepts which
have brought the German nation to
its present position of economic and
political isolation will be discussed
by Professor Parker, who will suggest
possible solutions for the present
crisis. An attempt to analyze the re-
cent negotiations which led Great
Britain to accede to Germany's de-
mands will be made by Professor
Dawson. The formal discussions will
be concluded by Professor Pollock,
who plants to interpret the recent
"Yes-No" election in Germany at
which Chancellor Hitler was given a
confidence vote of more than 90 per
cent of those balloting. Professor Pol-
lock will also estimate the possibility
of Germany's return to some form
of international co-operation through
such agencies as the League of Na-
tions, the Four-Power Peace Pact, or
other international machinery.

Only One-Third Advocate
Complete Abolition Of
Ruling On Automobiles
University students are not in fa-
vor of abolishing the ban on the use
of automobiles, according to the all-
campus poll conducted by the Under-
graduate Council last week, although
they are in favor of some sort of
modification. The form of modifica-
tion which the majority of them pre-
fers, according to the tabulation, is
one which would permit students with
degrees to drive cars.
A total of 3,364 votes were cast in
the election, although very few indi-
cated their choice on all of the ques-
tions proposed by the ballot. Only the
totals in the literary and engineering
colleges could be obtained at a late
hour last night, but these figures,
taken together with fie indications
from the votes counted in the other
schools, clearly demonstrated what
the majority of the students thought
in regard to the 10 general issues con-
Six-hundred and eighty-one stu-
dents in the two largest colleges of
the University voted to continue the
ban as it now exists, whereas 786
voted for its modification. A total of
793 students stated that the ban
should be continued and only 323
were in favor of doing away with
the ruling altogether. Strangely
enough, even the seniors in these two
colleges agreed with the underclass-
men that fourth-year students should
not be permitted to drive, but fell in
line with the other students in fa-

A total of 1,334 of the voters in
the two colleges favored the sale of
beer east of Division Street, while
only 444 students were opposed to{
the proposal. In the grand total of
all the colleges, 2,725 favored such a
measure and 639 opposed it. This
was the only question upon which the
actual totals from all the schools and
colleges were available last night.
The University R.O.T.C. will be re-7
tained if the students have their way,
as 1,239 voted against removing it
and only 445 favored its abolition.
On the question of war participa-
tion, the students were obviously not,
sure of their stand. Although 861 of
the voters said that they would sup-
port their country only in case it is
invaded and 283 stated that they
would not, 660 students pledged to
support their country in any war and
only 539 voted that they would not.
On the question asking the voters
if they favored retaining the present
closing hours for University women,
those voting were split in their opin-
ions with about a two-to-one ma-
jority favoring later hours for the
co-eds. On the other hand the stu-
dents were decidedly opposed to abol-
ishing closing hours altogether. A
total of 989 went on record in favor
of a change as opposed to 446 who
placed their weight with the status
quo. Only 481 favored the abolition

of all rules regarding what time the
women should be at their official res-
idences in the evening, and 859 said
that the rulings should be continued;

ter considering its effectiveness, they
believed the honor system should be
used, 935 students in the literary and
engineering colleges voted yes, 805
answering no. The margin, though
slight, indicated that the majority of
the students in the two colleges fa-
vored the use of thie system but this
indication was greatly modified by
the fact that the voting was reason-
ably close in the literary college, stu-
dents opposing the measure by a vote
of 764 to 632, while in the engineer-
ing college the students were in favor
of the use of the honor system by
a vote of 303 to 41. The system is
now in use in the latter college, indi-
cating that those students who have
been under the system for some time
are heartily in favor of it whereas
those not well acquainted with it are
largely undecided, though slightly
opposed to its adoption.
Resident Votes Undetermined
On the question regarding the
amount of jurisdiction which the
University should have over the resi-
dences of students, the total num-
ber of votes could not be determined
last night, although the general trend
was determined by those which had
been tabulated. All agreed, men and
women alike, in all of the colleges,
that the University should not have
jurisdiction over the residences of
students with degrees. On the resi-
dences of undergraduate men stu-
dents however there was a great dis-
crepancy between the votes of the
men and of the women. The men in
the several schools and colleges fa-
vored no jurisdiction over the resi-
dences of undergraduate men while
a majority of the women voting
though that the University should
control such matters. Likewise the
women took the same stand on the
question regarding University regula-
tion of residences for undergraduate
women, stating that they preferred
to be under the jurisdiction of the
University. The men agreed with
them on this issue, a large majority
of them voting in favor of official
regulation of women's residences.
Students in the Engineering Col-
lege favored compulsory physical ed-
ucation for men by a large majority
but men students in the Literary
College, strangely enough, were op-
posed to it. Women students favored
cdmpulsory physical education for
the men but opposed compulsory
training for women. The men in both
the engineering and literary colleges
upheld the women in this latter

Principals To
Convene Here
Next Thursday
High School Leaders Will
Confer With Freshmen
And Upperclassmen
High school principals representing
42 Michigan schools, two Indiana
military academies, and institutions
in Ohio and Canada, will meet here
Thursday for conferences with Uni-
versity freshmen who graduated from
their institutions last year, it was
announced yesterday by Ira MI.
Smith, registrar of the University.
Coming here for conferences which
have been arranged by the registrar,
the principalsare given an oppor-
tunity to discuss with their former
pupils the problems and difficulties
confronting the students during their
first year at the University. In this
manner they are prepared to make
alterations in their own teaching
methods which might aid their fu-
ture graduates.
Invitations are sent out to the for-
mer principals of all students who
entered the University this year and,
upon their acceptance, the freshmen
are notified by the degistrar of the
times for individual conferences. Al-
though primarily arranged for first-
year men, upper class members are
also invited to visit the principals
while they are in Ann Arbor for the
one-day meeting.
Approximately 450 first-year stu-
dents will take part in the inter-
views this year. A luncheon, attended
by University faculty members who
have been in close touch with the
work of the freshmen, is given at
the Union by the University for the
visiting educators. All of the con-
ferences between principals and stu-
dents are held in the office of the
registrar in Mason Hall.
