Food Plan
is Outilned
Co-Operative Buying Will
Start After Beginning Of
Next Semester
Further Details To
Be Released Later
System In Use At U. Of
Wisconsin Will Serve As
Model, Says Kelley
Co-Operative buying of food prod-
ucts for fraternities under a plan that
is expected to result in substantial
saving in the costs of eating will be
inaugurated near the beginning of
the second semester when the Frater-
nity Buyers Co-operative, which was
formed last night, will begin its
operations.
Following a meeting of the tenta-
tive board of governors of the asso-
ciation, Bethel B. Kelley, '34, presi-
dent of the Interfraternity Council,
said that the system which is under
contemplation will contain many of
the provisions of the plan now in
operation at the University of Wis-
consin, which saved last year more
than 20 per cent per man per month
on the food charges in their house
bills.
The names of the men who will
control the policies of the association
as members of the Board of Gov-
ernors were also announced last night
by Kelley and are as follows: Joseph
A. Bursley, dean of students, Paul
Eiserman, Grad., Prof. Robert G.
Rodkey of the economics department,
Prof. Dudley M. Phelps of the busi-
ness administration school, and Her-
bert H. Upton of Ann Arbor.
Kelley also said that the condi-
tions at Wisconsin are "very similar"
to those at Michigan, and that he na-
turally hopes for effective results
here. Of the 11 fraternities which
enlisted in the plan at Wisconsin,
none have dropped out, and nine

Alcoholic Content Of
Beer Sold Here Varies
Legal beer stronger than present
State specifications allow for is
being sold to students in at least
one of Ann Arbor's more popular
beer gardens, an analysis made by
The Daily with the co-operation of
the pharmacy college shows. On
the other hand, analysis from an-
other of the more frequented beer
parlors shows that students are
imbibing, unknowingly, liquor
safely under the 3.2 limit.
The report from sample A
showed the beverage to contain
3.38 per cent alcohol by weight
and 4.25 per cent by volume.
The second sample reported the
beer to be 2.78 by weight, and 3.5
by volume, which is considerably
undermthe limit for Michigan.
Rumors that the downtown
"cabarets" were spiking the beer
were false according to Prof. C. C.
Glover, secretary of the pharmacy
college, who made the analysis. No
foreign substances were found.

Between Groups
Causes of and cures for intolerance
will be the subject of a symposium
to be held Saturday afternoon and
night in the Union, under the spon-
sorship of the Council of Religion and
the Hillel Foundation, it was an-
nounced yesterday.
Eight faculty members will speak

designed to provide a basis for bet-
ter understanding between races,
classes, and religions.
At the 2:30 p. m. meeting, which
will be concerned with the causes,
Prof. Z. Clark Dickinson of the eco-
nomics department will present the
economic factors; Prof. Walter B.
Pillsbury, chairman of the psychology
department, the psychological; Prof.
R. D. McKenzie, chairman of the so-

More Than 50
Seek Rides At
Union Bureau
More than 50 students have al-
ready applied for transportation to
points all over the country during
Christmas vacation at the student
offices of the Union, headquarters of
the second ride bureau, according to
an announcement released yesterday
afternoon by executive committee-
men.
At the same time it was stated that
the number of applicants desiring
rides was far in excess of the num-
ber offeririg transportation. Offi-
cials expressed the hope that many
more students would avail themselves
of this opportunity to travel cheaply.
The only regulation of the bureau
is that only private parties will be

accommodated; officials stressed the
fact that it will not be used as a
means to promote commercial ven-
tures of any kind.
Women students, as well as men,
are urged to register immediately at
the bureau, which will be open be-
tween 3 p. m. and 5 p. m. on week-
day afternoons, with committeemen
in charge.

Gov. Rolph Is
Rebuked For
LynchStand
President Roosevelt In His
Speech Calls Lynching
'Veiled Murder'
Time Of Prosperity
Is Near, He Says
'A More Abundant Life' Is
Set As Great Objective
Of Church And State
WASHINGTON, Dec. 6. - () -
President Roosevelt in an address to-i
night called lynching a "veiled forml
of collective murder."'
The President also indirectly re-1
buked Gov. James Rolph of Cali-]
fornia who recently expressed ap-
proval of mob action in San Jose,
Calif., which resulted in the death of
two men.,
"Wje do not excuse those in high
places or in low who condone lynch
law," Mr. Roosevelt said.
He did not, however, in his speech
before the Federal council of
churches of America directly refer to"
the California lynching or to similar
incidents recently in Missouri and
Maryland.
Mr. Roosevelt expressed faith in+
the "new generation" as a preliminary
to his strong condemnation of mob'
violence.
"This new generation, for ex-
ample," he said, "is not content with1
preaching against that vile form of
collective murder -lynch law -
which has broken out in our midst
anew. We know that it is murder -
and a deliberate and definite dis-
obedience of the commandment, 'thou
shalt not kill.' We do not excuse those'
in high places or in low who condone
lynch law."
"But a thinking America goes fur-
ther. It seeks a government of its
own that will be sufficiently strong to
protect the prisoner and at the same
time to crystallize a public opinion
so clear that government of all kinds
will be compelled to practice a more
certain justice.
"The judicial function of the gov-
ernment is the protection of the in-,
dividual and the community through
quick and certain justice. That func-
tion in many places has fallen into
a sad state of disrepair. It must be
part of our program to reestablish
it."
In his first public utterance since
returning from Warm Springs, Ga.,
where he spent a Thanksgiving vaca-
tion, the President said the govern-
ment was seeking the goal the
churches looked toward and that
from "the bottom of my heart I be-
lieve that this beloved country is en-
tering upon a time of great gain.
"That gai," he said, "can well in-
clude a greater material prosperity
if we take care that it is a prosperity
for a hundred and twenty million hu-
man beings and not a prosperity for
the top of the pyramid alone.
"If I were asked to state the great
objective which church and state are
both demanding for the sake of every
man and woman and child in this
country, I would say that that great
objective is 'a more abundant life.'"

Hundreds Gather At State
Capitol For Last Public
Expression On Bill
Veteran Senator's
Death Halts Session
Senate Invites Interests To
Return And State Their
Views On Control
LANSING, Dec. 6.- (P)- The Leg-
islature tonight marked time on its
liquor control bill as hundreds gath-
ered in the spacious House cham-,
bers to register a final public ex-
pression on Michigan's proposed ve-
hicle of repeal.
Death among its members stepped
in today to halt legislative works on,
the measure and set leaders into a
huddle in an attempt to work out
a plan for the possible enactment
of the bill by the end of the week.
Both houses adjourned their ses-
sions today out of respect for the late
Senator Calvin A. Campbell, 67, a
veteran Republican, who died at his
home on Indiana River Tuesday. A
concurrent resolution was adopted
expressing sympathy over his death
and arrangements were made for the
Senate to attend the funeral Friday
afternoon at Bay City in a body.
Both friends and foes of repeal,
the latter in a capacity chiefly as
listeners, crowded the floor and gal-
leries of the house chamber for the
public hearing tonight. Although the
legislative council conducted hearings
for six weeks before drafting the orig-
inal bill, the Senate again invited
druggists, hotel representatives, res-
taurant owners, Michigan crusaders,
and other interests to return here
and register their vie s on control of
the liquor traffic.

Football Death
List Drops In
Recent Season
Game More Safely Played
Than Ever Before, Says
Floyd R. Easterwood
NEW YORK, Dec. 6. -(W)- De-
spite increased participation by high
school and sandlot players, deaths
from football in the season just closed
show a decline from the high mark of
1931 and 1932 in a survey made to-
day by the Associated Press.
Reports from all sources show 26
deaths directly attributable to the
game and 10 more in which injuries
in play may have been a contributing
factor. One of the deaths was that
of a 13-year old girl. These figures
compare with 50 deaths recorded in
1931 and 38 last year.
Not one college varsity player is
on the list and only five college fresh-
men, of which number only two can
be definitely listed as having died
from injuries suffered in supervised
games or practice.
The deaths, including the 10
"doubtful" fatalities, are segregated
as follows: college 5; high school 16;
sandlot 15; semipro and athletic clubs
2.
The record leads Floyd R. Easter-
wood, of New York University who
conducted a similar survey for the
national bureau of casualty and
surety underwriters, to the conclusion
that "on the whole, the game appears
to have been played more safely this
year than ever before."

Veto Statement Declares
'Agitation' Has Resulted
In 'Hasty Action'
Scholarship, Health
Cited As Reasons
Charges 'Fatigue-Illness'
And Increased Number
Of Scholastic Warnings
By CAROL HANAN
Dean Alice Lloyd last night offi-
cially vetoed all requests for changes
in women's hours as asked for by the
Women's Self-Governing Body, and
said that "with the present picture of
health and scholarship there is a
great deal more to be said for curtail-
ing hours than for adding to them."
In her statement Miss Lloyd de-
clared that the "agitation" for wom-
en's hours did not start with the
women themselves, that it has re-
sulted in "hasty action," that it chal-
lenges her faith in all student govern-
ment, and that no genuine argument
has been advanced for any change in
hours, and that students, "both men
and women," should remember that
the purpose of college life is not
dancing and the movies."
The request for an additional half
hour for women on Sunday nights
was denied, Miss Lloyd said, "be-
cause of the present picture of stu-
dent health and scholarship." The
question of allowing senior women

Union Exhibit
Prepared For
SophCabaret,
In co-operation with the central
staff of the Sophomore Cabaret, the
student committees of the Union
have planned and executed an ex-
hibit of various activities, which will
be displayed Friday and Saturday,
on the second floor lounge of the
League, according to a statement
made yesterday by Executive Com-
mitteemen Henry W. Felker, '35, and
Douglas Welch, '35, under whose di-
rection it was prepared.
Felker announced that the exhibit
will include an historic table-top
from the taproom, carved with the
initials of "old grads," which at one
time stood in a well-known down-
town saloon, the national intercol-
legiate billiard championship trophy,
won last year by Michigan, which
will be borrowed for the occasion
from the billiard room, and a swim-
ming cup, for which competition is
conducted each year in the Unionl

League Starts 1
New Program
Seeking U. S.
ROME, Dec. 6 -(A)-A new pro-
gram which would radically reorgan-
ize the League of Nations in the hope
it may attract within its doors the
United States and other world pow-
ers has been launched, the Associated
Press learned today.
The movement is under discus-
sion in several European capitals, it
was divulged. Its sponsors desire
Russia, Japan, and Germany to come
into the League as well as the United
States.
Italy has not yet formulated defi-
nite formal proposals to other mem-
bers, but she wants to erase existing
League articles which bind signator-
ies to use military and economic
forces to preserve boundaries cre-
ated by the Versailles treaty.
By this means it is hoped to re-
move the principal obstacle to United
States membership.

Longest Over-Water Trip
Of Tour Is Completed
After 16 Hours
NATAL, Brazil, Dec. 6 - (W) - Col.
Charles A. Lindbergh and his wire-
less-operating wife, the former Anne
Morrow, alighted on the harbor here
at 3:10 p. m. Brazilian time (1:10
p. m. Detroit time) today after flying
from Bathurst, Gambia, Africa, 1,875
miles away, in 16 hours, 10 minutes.
It was the longest over-water flight
of their aerial survey tour.
The whole population of Natal, its
stores and offices closed for the fiesta
of welcome, its streets decorated,
packed the water-front.
At 2:50 p. m. a keen-eyed watcher
caught the first glimpse of the great
red monoplane as it headed in from
the Atlantic. Launch whistles blared,
and from the crowd arose a mighty
roar of "Viva!"
Straight in toward the harbor the
plane flew, and passed above the
cheering throng, Lindbergh banked
it gracefully over the town and set
it down smoothly in the harbor.
A Distinction For Anne
With the alighting of the ship, Mrs.t
Lindbergh became the first woman
ever to fly in an airplane across the
South Atlantic.
When welcoming delegations
reached the anchored monoplane,
Lindbergh's words, as usual, were
few.
"It was a fine trip," he said, "with
fine flying conditions. We encoun-
tered occasional strong south winds."
That was his sole immediate com-
ment on the flight. In addition, he
thanked an official committee for the
warm welcome extended Mrs. Lind-
bergh and himself. He was greeted
by the Government "intervento," Ma-
rio Camara, who extended an official
welcome in the name of President
Getulio Vargas and the State of Rio
Grande do Norte, of which Natal is
the capital.
The official launch carried Col.
and Mrs. Lindbergh to the piers,
where police held back the excited,
happy crowds.
The Lindberghs went to the home
of the British Consul, where they
were to be entertained.

Varsity Band Guests Of
Theatre Management
Nearly the full personnel of the
100-piece Varsity Band were the,
guests of the Michigan Theatre
last night at the final perform-
ance of "Berkeley Square."
For the second successive year
Jerry Hoag, manager of the the-
atre, invited the band to attend as
the theatre's guests a week after
the free show given the campus.
Crowded conditions at the free
show which celebrates an athletic
championship have, in previous
years, prevented the band from
getting satisfactory seats.
"This is really the band's party,"
Mr. Hoag said last night. "We fig-
ure that, after a season of the
hard work they put in, the boys
ought to get something without
working for it." Consequently the
band made no contribution to the
program, merely marching from its
Morris Hall headquarters to the
theatre.

Prof. Case Will
Talk T-oday On
Lecture Series
'A Paleobiologist Looks At
Life' Is Topic Of Noted
UniversityGeologist
One of the leading scholars of the
University, Prof. E. C. Case, director
of the Museum of Paleontology, is
well qualified to give the paleobiol-
ogist's attitude towards the problem
of life, according to Frank E. Rob-
bins, assistant to the president. He
will speak at 4:15 p. m. today in the
Natural Science Auditorium.
Paleobiology is the study of fossils
in their relation to life, different from
Paleontology which is a study of fos-
sils to determine the age of strata.
It is a comparatively recent science
which has reached great prominence
in this country and abroad.
Professor Case has written a num-
ber of articles and books on this
subject and through expeditions each
summer he is well acquainted with
the field work, Dr. Robbins said.
He is a member of most of the
leading scientific geological societies,
many of which have made him a fel-
low, and of the Philosophical Society
of Philadelphia. -
This speech, the third in the Uni-
versity Lecture Series, is entitled
"The Modern Biologist's Attitude To-
wards the Problem of Life."

WASHINGTON, Dec. 6. - (R) -
Secretary of the Interior Harold L.
Ickes Wednesday announced public
works allotments totaling $9,182,378
for 66 non-Federal projects scattered
over 22 states.
The largest allotment was a loan
and grant of $2,115,200 to Los An-
geles County, California, for the con-
struction of a thirteen-story fireproof
county office building.
Michigan items were a loan and
grant for $95,000 for power purposes
to Grand Haven and a grant of $4,-
000 to St. Clair for sewers.

Solons Would
Tax Property
Exchange, Sale
WASHINGTON, Dec. 6- (A") -
Spreading its net to gather iuore mil-
lions in revenue from gambling and
property sales on exchange between
members of wealthy families, a House
Ways and Means Sub-committee to-
day proposed 30 additional changes
in the Revenue Act to raise an esti-
mated $35,000,000.-
Together with yesterday's report
which suggested nine major revisions
to bring in a calculated $235,000,000,
today's recommendations brought to
$270,000,000 the estimated added lev-
ies and tax savings proposed.
Chairman Newt Hill, Washington
Democrat, of the sub-committee, an-
nounced that "new sources" of reve-
nue would not be investigated 'until
the Federal budget needs were ascer-
tained.
The sub-committee suggested mak-
ing the new tax law effective on next
year's incomes, the taxes on which
are payable in the calendar year 1935.
It added, however, that the full com-
mittee might desire to make certain
features retrontive on this v er's in-

late permissions makes the "problem
for night chaperons an acute one, and
cannot be administered under the
present system," Miss Lloyd said. She
asked that this recommendation be
"reconsidered with this difficulty in
mind."
Miss Lloyd said that scholarship,
particularly among the new students,
has been poor, 38 per cent of enter-
ing freshmen women rating D or E in
one or more courses in the recent
report prepared for high schools. Be-
sides this, Dean Lloyd said, there is
an unusually large number of poor
reports coming into Dean Wilber
Humphrey's office from mid-semester
examinations, and an unprecedented
number of warnings and probations
have resulted. This is one of the rea-
sons why additional hours, in the
opinion of the dean, are not desirable.
Health also, Miss Lloyd said, has
not been encouraging. "There has
been altogether too much illness due
to fatigue. There is also a noticeable
increase in the list of invalids at the
time of mid-semesters and finals, due
in some instances to fatigue and in
others to a deep sense of unprepared-
ness. Later hours for women students
will not remedy these conditions."
Miss Lloyd also called attention to
administrative difficulties which, she
said, might cause s'rious problems if
women were granted later hours. It
would be impossible to continue the
use of student night chaperons in
several dormitories if the hours for
women are to be still later, the dean
said. Further, the overhead expenses
of the dormitories would be increased
if later hours were granted, she said,
Miss Lloyd called the house meet-
ings and the meeting of the Board of
Representatives, which, she said, ig-
nored the serious questions concerned
in the problem, a serious challenge
to women's self-government to defend
itself.
