The CWA Helps Needy Stu-
dents; Honor Our Varsity At
The Smoker.








Question Of
Student Work
Is In Tanole
Smith Sees No Provisions
For Or Against Hiring
Students Under CWA
Many Applicants
Are Refused Jobs
Required 30-Hour Week
Main Obstacle; 'White
Collar' Jobs Lacking
The possibility of students being
employed in either of the two Uni-
versity Civil Works Administration
projects has resolved itself into what
was termed last night a "tangled
proposition," by Harold D. Smith, di-
rector of the Michigan Municipal
League, who is prominently affiliated
with the local CWA administration.
Students who registered in the
basement of the City Postoffice yes-
terday in the hope of obtaining em-
ployment on the CWA projects were
told in many cases that their chances
of obtaining work were slim because
they had no family dependents in
many cases, and because they would
be unable to work the quota of 30
hours a week while in the University.
The lack of "vhite collar" jobs was
also cited as an additional blockade
against students enjoying the bene-
fits of the Rooseveltian CWA pro-
"Apparently there are no rules or
regulations prohibiting the employ-
ment of students," Mr. Smith said..
"On he other hand, there is no
stipulation in favor of the students.
It seems at present that there may
be some chance of using them, but
there is still the 30-hour week ob-
stacle to be surmounted.
"Possibly the Unversity,through
more direct negotiations with Lans-
ing, can obtain 'white collar' or re-
search-type jobs for students at a
later date. Wisconsin was able to
gain approval of 'white collar' CWA
work, although not for students, but
we may be able to do this for stu-
Under the present plan, Washte-.
naw County will be able to employ
about 2,000 men. More than 7,000
have applied for work.
-The University environs are being
scoured for possible CWA projects of
a type from which students could
benefit, according to Prof. Lewis M.
Gram, director of plant extension,
but he added that all there was to
do for a while is to "mark time."
Student Rates
For Christmas
Are Announced'
Round trip rates for students re-
turning home over the Christmas
holidays have been announced by lo-
cal ticket agents for airlines, buses,
and railroads.
The lowest round trip railroad
rates that have ever been offered,
single fare and a ninth, were an-
nounced by local officials of the
Michigan Central Railroad. This rate
is good anywhere in the United
States except the New England
States. This special rate is good only

from Dec. 14 to Jan. 15.I
The local ticket office of the Grey-
hound Bus Lines also announced a
new low in special student round trip
rates of a one way fare plus one dol-
lar, good to all points east of St.
Frederick S. Randall, manager of
the Michigan Alumni Travel Bureau,
official Ann Arbor ticket office for all
airplane and steamship companies,
announced that there will be no spe-
cial student holiday rates on the air-
lines. He pointed out, however, that
the airline companies in general have
substantially reduced their regular
rates in the last year.

minded view of the subject which he
is discussing."
Professor Bassett, who is visiting
here prior to attending the annual,

convention of the National Associa-
tion of Teachers of Speech, of which
he is president, said that Robins is
a quiet, conversationalist type of
speaker and does not declaim and
gesture. "I heard him deliver a lec-
ture in an assembly at Stanford
where he kept a group of students
respectfully interested and silent for
two hours," stated Professor Bassett.
Colonel Robins may be remembered
as the man who in September of 1932
caused nation-wide concern when he
mysteriously disaippeared while en
route to Washington to confer with
his personal friend former President
It was feared by many that because
of Colonel Robins' militant advocacy
of prohibition and frequent crusades
for this cause, that bootleggers, who
had previously written threatening
letters, had done away with him.
A nation-wide search was insti-
tuted with no results. However,

State Ekes Out
26-2 5 Triumph
Over Michigan
Wolverines Imi p r o v e On
Initial Showing; Allen
Leads Scoring
Michigan's Varsity basketball team
lost to Michigan State by a single
point in the opening home game of
the season played at Yost Field
House last night, the Spartans eking
out a 26 to 25 win in one of the fast-
est and most thrilling early-season
games ever played here.
The Wolverines were an immense-
lyimproved team over the outfit that
lost a one-sided game to Western
State on Monday, and on several oc-
casions their ,scoring spurts gave
them a comfortable lead, but the
Green and White cagers were not to
be denied.
Led by their tall center, Maurice
Buysse, who was high point man of
both teams with 13 points, the Spar-
tans came back after trailing by a
point with seven minutes to go, to
win in a driving finish.'
Allen Leads Wolverines
Fred Allen led his Wolverine team-
mates in scoring with a total of nine
points, scored on four field goals and
a foul. His pivot shot from near the
foul line put Michigan back in the
running on several occasions.
Coach Franklin C. Cappon said
after the game that he was disap-
pointed over losing such a close
game, but expressed himself as be-
ing satisfied with the way his team
played on the whole. He said that
on several occasions the first team
did not take advantage of opportuni-
ties to work the ball in close, and said
that was the reason why he sent a
sophomore team in near the end of
the first half.
The mentor said that the team was
much better than on Monday, prais-
ing particularly the work of two
sophomores, George Ford and Chelso
Tomagno. Ford, playing at a regu-
lar forward position, collected seven
points and was the spark plug of
the Wolverine offense. Tomakno sub-
stituted for Oliver at guard and was
instrumental in starting the spurt
that almost won the game.
Michigan Scores First
Michigan got away to a flying start,
scoring five points in the first min-
ute. Allen opened the fireworks with
a shot from under the basket when
10 seconds had elapsed. Twelve sec-
onds later Oliver dribbled in for an-
other basket and a moment later he
cashed in on a free throw to make
the score 5 to 0 before the Spartans
could get going.
Buysse got his first point of the
game on a free throw. Both teams
were guarding closely and fouls were
frequent. Plummer missed two con-
secutive attempts from the foul line
before Buysse cashed in for a second
free throw.
Herrick ran the count to 5 to 4
with a long shot that didn't touch
the rim, and Buysse put the Spar-
tans ahead for the first time with
a shot from close in.

Nebraska Rated In Second
Place; Minnesota A n d
Pittsburgh Next
Princeton Ranked
In Seventh Position
Rockne Trophy Is Offered
By 'Four Horsemen' In
Honor Of Late Coach
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Dec. 9.--(P) -
The University of Michigan football
team, named champions of the Big
Ten for the fourth consecutive year,
was announced winner of the Knute
K. Rockne National Intercollegiate
Football Trophy by Prof. Frank G.
Dickinson, originator of the Dickin-
son rating system.
It was the second consecutive year
the Wolverines have received the
Dickinson first rating. According to
the system, Nebraska won second
place in the national rating and Min-
nesota third. Michigan, although
tied, finished its season undefeated
and was given trophy preference be-
cause of its extremely difficult sched-
ule. Southern California ranked
sixth, aided to its position by tp.e
strong intersectional record of its
Princeton Ranked Seventh
Between Pittsburgh in fourth place
and Stanford in eleventh, there was
only the smallest of margins. Prince-
ton, -although undefeated, did not
play an exceptionally strong sched
ule and was ranked seventh.
In the rating granted, each con-
ference is ranked on the basis of con
ference games. The intersectional
games are then used to determine
relative standings of various confer
ences. The final step is the formu-
lation of the national ranking sys-
tem from the intersectional games in
connection with the conference rat-
ings, Dickinson said. Victories over
Big Ten first division teams count
30 points plus 2.38, or 32.38. Their
figures for other conferences depend '
on the figures given for the intersec-
tional standings.
The Rockne trophy is offered by
the "Four Horsemen," Harry Stuhl-
dreher, James Crowley, Don Miller,
and Elmer Layden. It must be won
three times in a decade in order for
a school to obtain permanent pos-
'Overcame Stronger Opposition'
Commenting on the rating, Pro-
fessor Dickinson said, "I do not claim
that Michigan is national champion.
My rating merely means that the
Wolverines have overcome stronger
opposition than any other team in
the nation - the strength of the op-
position being measured by my meth-
od of rating, which gives more credit
for beating strong teams."
The following figures show the rel-
ative standings of the different sec-
tions: Big Ten, plus 2.38; Pacific
Coast, plus 1.36; East, 0.00; Big Six,
minus 2.56; Southern, minus 4.09;
Southwestern, minus 5.19.
Duke, Columbia, and Alabama were
the three leading teams just below
the first 11. This marks the comple-
tion of the first decade of Dickinson's
national rating system. No school has
been on the list of the 11 leading
teams every year but Southern Cali-
fornia has been on the list nine years
out of 10. Notre Dame ranks second
with seven out of 10 times.
