at approximately $100 each, was re-
ported at the Michigan League last

Hopeful Ann Arbor Children
Send Letters To Santa Claus

In spite of the fact that Christmas
is 10 days off, Ann Arbor children
have gone to no end of trouble to
reach Santa Claus before Dec. 25.
For the past two weeks letters writ-
ten on bits of scratch paper and fine
stationery have been pouring into
the post office, which have been
turned over to the Family Welfare
Bureau for proper forwarding. If
Santa answers the requests of all the
boys and girls who have written him,
Christmas should be a happy one
One little girl who has addressed
her letter to "Santa Clause, Toy Toun
Mich., Christmas Avenue" writes, "It
will be a big time for you Christmas
night. Please come here. Heres my
Best regards to your helpers. I would
like a smock, a little candy & a book
about the Bobbsey Twins & a tree .. .
By my stocking I will leave a papper

on which you sign your name. Please.
"P.S. Remember my father &
mother and all the poor kids. I herd
you and mickey mouse over the radio.
Are you busy? I soupoze so."
More touching are two letters
which stand out from all the rest.
Junior writes: "I am glad it is so
near Christmas but I do not expect
much because it is hard times. I
would like to have a movie projector,
tracks for my electric train, and a
Carrom board, but in these hard
times I do not expect much so I will
let you choose what to bring me."
Addressing her letter to "Santy
Claws, North Pole," Barbara, barely
able to write, has scrawled in a
childish hand,
Book of Jesus."

Lindberghs In
Puerto Rico As
Long Hop Ends
Fliers Expect To Fly To
Miami Today; Will Be
1,180-Mile jaunt
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Dec. 14.
- ()--Happy because the y are
speeding homeward, Col. and Mrs.
Charles A.' Lindbergh arrived here
this afternoon after a 753-mile flight
from Port of Spain, Trinidad.
With a perfect day for the hop
the Lindberghs covered the distance
in a little more than five and a half
hours. Now they are 1,180 miles from
Miami, Fla., and the American soil
they have not seen for six months.
They came ashore 35 minutes after
their monoplane had reached the
channel at the airport.
Lindbergh cautiously approached
the buoy, but failed to stop the plane
the first time for anchoring.
When they rowed ashore, the avi-
ators were greeted at the landing
float by Acting Gov. Benjamin J.
Horton, and Mrs. Horton whose
guests the Lindberghs were.
A crowd of more than 1,000 gath-
ered at the airport and as the plane
came down in the channel, whistles
of harbor craft sounded a raucous
After getting ashore, the Lind-
berghs spent 10 minutes at the air-
port with United States customs
and immigration officials - the first
American authorities they have faced
since their departuretlast July on
their route-mapping tour.
From the airport the visitors were
driven directly to the governor's
palace in San Juan without making
known their future plans.
Aviation officials Asked them when
they would leave, and their destina-
tion, but the colonel replied that he
did not know.
In a message sent before their ar-
rival, however, Lindbergh said that
he had several hours of work to do
on the plane and that they planned
to leave for Miami tomorrow.
Prof. W. H. Frayer, formerly of
the history department, was the prin-
cipal speaker at a meeting of the
University of Michigan Club of Bos-
ton last night at the University Club,
according to an announcement made
by T. Hawley Tapping, general sec-
retary of the Alumni Association.

To Repeat Showing
Of"Hansel And Gretel'
In response to popular request
as evidenced by the capacity au-
dience of delighted youngsters
yesterday, the Children's Theatre
of Ann Arbor will present an ad-
ditional performance of "Hansel
and Gretel" at 8:15 p. m. today in
Lydia Mendelssohn - Theatre, it
was announced last night.
The series of children's plays

See Surplus Of
Treasury Fund
For Recovery
WASHINGTON, Dec. 14.-(P) -
Almost $1,060,000,000 will pour into
the Treasury's coffers tomorrow and
approximately $841,000,000 will be
paid out, adding some $218,000,000 to
the working capital with which the
government is paying its operating
expenses and financing the recovery
Looking ahead, Treasury officials
estimated that Dec. 31, the end of
the fiscal year's first six months
would find $1,060,000,000 in the
Treasury's general fund, enough, they
thought, to make the flotation of a
bond issue, to provide funds for in-
creasing public works outlays, un-
necessary until the next regular fi-
nancing date, March 15.
Meanwhile, general attention was
riveted once more upon the admin-
istration's monetary program by a
White House conference attended by
Eugene Black, governor of the Fed-
eral Reserve board and George Har-
rison, governor of the New York Fed-
eral Reserve Bank. Recent reports of
imminent action to stabilize the dol-
lar were called to their attention, but
their only reply was a reference to
official denials which emanated from
several authoritative quarters in

LANSING, Dec. 14. - (P) -The
Senate tonight failed to adopt the
conference report on the proposed
liquor control bill and adjourned until
tomorrow morning khen it will re-
sume consideration of the bill and
vote again on its acceptance.
The bill was defeated by a vote
of 17 to 12. Friends of the measure
immediately began a move to insure1
its reconsideration, framed by a joint
committee of the House and Senate,
it will be returned for further altera-
The bill, accepted by the House
membership by a one-vote margin to-j
night, was savagely attacked on the
floor of the Senate. Senator Ray Der-
ham, (Rep., Iron Mountain), labelled
it "absolutely putrid" and declaredj
that "Al Capone himself, had he
drafted this bill, could not have done
a better job for the speakeasy."
Senator Joseph C. Foster, (Rep.,
Lansing), contended the bill was out
of order inasmuch as it contained a'
provision which prohibits members of
the legislature from recommending
appointees for the five-man commis-
sion provided by the, bill. His con-
tention was overruled by Lieut.-Gov.
Allen E. Stebbins.
The Senate roll call on the bill was
as follows:

Shows Needs For Funds
From State; Committee
Of 17 Asks Action
FLINT, Dec. 14.-(A)-Asking
statewide action to seek at least $15,-j

at once and protesting "vague pro-
posals of phantom dollars" in the in-
definite future, Dr. Henry Cook,
chairman of the Michigan Commit-
tee of 17, Thursday announced that
the committee was writing to all in-
terested groups in the State to co-
operate in the demand for prompt'
The committee of 17 met at Lan-I
sing Wednesday and adopted a reso-
lution declaring that while $15,000,-
000 school aid would not be enough1
it is the least that should be ap-
propriated. The resoultion was pre-
sented to Gov. Comstock and the,
chairman of the legislative council.-
"In a conference with the superin-

tendent of public instruction's force,"
said Dr. Cook, "it was found that
funds now being suggested are made-
quate to keep schools from closing
early, and that proposed sources of
the funds are doubtful. It is prob-
able that there would be small if any
funds from these sources."
The letter was being mailed from
Lansing to all parent-teacher asso-
ciations and councils, the American
Association of University Women,
the League of Women Voters, school
boards and officials, officers of the
Michigan Education Association,
American Legion groups and all
county chairmen and other leading
members of the committee of 17.
It will inform them of the situa-
tion and urge immediate action to de-
provide necessary school funds. It will
request that "direct responsibility be
placed for the solution of this prob-
lem, in order that schools may be
kept open."

Insull Must
Leave Greece
Before Jan. 1
Greek Courts Have Denied
Extradition Plea Of U. S.
On Two Occasions
Refuse Renewal Of
Residence Permit
Revocation Of Passport
Leaves Former Magnate
Without Consular Status
ATHENS, Dec. 14. - (P) - Samuel
Insull, former Chicago utilities czar
must leave Greece by Jan. 1, it was
stated on behalf of the government
The Greek premier,'Panayoti Tsal-
daris, said it -has been decided not to
renew Insull's police permit for resi-
dence in the country on its expira-
tion Dec. 31.
The Greek courts twice have turned
down a request of the United States
for Insull's extradition. Today In-
sull formally applied to the aliens'
department of the Greek government
for extension of his permit.
Request Refused
The premier said that the govern-
ment had refused the request. He said
the method by which he may leave
Greece has not been decided upon
but said he was asking Insull to leave
the country by the first of the year.
The United States has revoked In-
sull's passport, leaving him without
consular status as an American cit-
The Greek government's decision
means that Insull, for several months
a quiet and apparently (contented
resident of Athens, must seek another
place of asylum. The fact that his
passport has been cancelled was ex-
pected to present complications for
the former Chicagoan.
'Unable' To Deport Him
The premier previously had ex-
plained that according to the United
States extradition treaty and be-
cause of two verdicts "we are unable
to hand him over," but he added that
the government would try to find a
way to deport him.
Insull faces charges of embezzle,1
ment in Chicago in connection with
the collapse of his vast utilities em-
The Greek government several days
ago was reported prepared to pro-
vide Insull with a laissez-passer, al-
lowing him free entry to other coun-
tries as far as Greece was concerned.
Upson Heads Tax
Delinquency Probe
Dr. Lent D. Upson, Detroit pro-
fessorial lecturer of the University
political science department, has
been made head of a Census Bureau
Federal survey of tax delinquency in
the 309 cities of the United States
with a population of 30,000 or more,
it was announced here yesterday.
Previous to his appointment, Dr. Up-
son had been serving in Detroit as
director of the city's Bureau of Gov-
ernmental Research, in addition to
his University duties.
Commenting on Dr. Upson's new
position, the Detroit News in an edi-
torial said: "By items and then more
items have we come to know his
data on the 125 millions spent each
year to maintain county government
that overlaps city government not

much less than 100 millions' worth."
The automobile ban will be lifted
at 12 noon today to permit students
to drive home for the holidays. It
will again go into force at 8 a. m.,
Wednesday, Jan. 3, when University
classes will be resumed.

Debaters Score
Double Victory
In Conference
Affirmative Team Defeats
Minnesota; Iowa Bows
To NegativeSquad
The Michigan Varsity affirmative
debating team defeated the Minne-
sota negative team in a Conference
debate which was held at the Lydia
Mendelssohn theatre last night.
The team, which was composed of
Edward Litchfield, '36, E d w a r d
Downs, '36, and Jack Weissman, '35,
was awarded the decision by critic
judge Prof. C. C. Cunningham, di-
rector of varsity debating at North-
western University, "because of su-
perior presentation and also because
they presented a more analytical con-
cept of the question."
The debate was on the regular
Conference question "Resolved that
a Constitutional Amendment making
Permanent the Powers of the Presi-,
dent as of July 1, 1933, be Adopted."
The principle argument on which
the affirmative based their argu-
ments was the depression has been
so bad that greater governmental
control is necessary. The agency
that must assume that responsibility
is the President, because for many
years the inability of Congress to act
in emergencies has been proved. The
fact that under major presidential
control, the government is centralized
so that the eyes of the people are
focused on one point and as a result
any slips on the part of the execu-
tive will cause immediate criticism.
The arguments advanced by the
Minnesota negative team Was based
chiefly on the fear that if the Presi-
dent retained his present power, a
dictatorship would be established and
no legislative checks would be able
to be put into effect.
Prof. Louis M. Eich of the speech
department was chairman of the de-

Kipke Will
Coach Makes A Statement
Before Boarding Train
For New York
Increase In Salary
For 1934 Assured
Claims Assistant Coaches
Do Not Receive Enough
Credit For Work
Coach Harry G. Kipke, in a state-
ment made publict yesterday, said
definitely that he will remain as
chairman of the coaching staff at
Michigan next year. Kipke made the
statement shortly before he boarded
a train at 6:30 p.m. for New York
where he will speak on the All-Amer-
ica broadcast Friday evening.
In his statement Kipke said that
he had been assured of an increase
in salary by the Board in Control of
Athletics, the raise to go into effect
next year. It is rumored that the
Board's decision on the increase was
reached before any agitation was be-
gun to get Kipke at Yale or Dart-
"I like it here at Michigan", Kipke
declared in part, "and I am willing
to continue coaching here, even for
less money than might be had else-
It is Kipke's opinion that the rest
of the coaching staff does not get
enough credit for its work. In view
of this Kipke said that he would
petition the Athletic Board for in-
creases in salary for these men.
The amount of the raise Kipke will
get was not revealed, but it is sup-
posed it will be a substantial amount.
His present salary has been estimated
between $4,500 and $6,500, but au-
thoritative sources place it at $5,-
Kipke since taking up his duties
-here in 1928 has been -one .of the
most successful of the young coaches,
winning or tying for four Conference
titles in five years and winning the
national championship under the
Dickinson rating system for two con-
secutive years.
During this time he has been one
of the lowest salaried coaches in the
Big Ten, although he has been able
to bolster his pay in the last year by
endorsing athletic g o o d s, writing
magazine articles and speaking on
radio programs.
Third Insanity
Plea Made By

Case To Jury Today As
Trial Speeds To End
For the third time George Reed,
confessed slayer, who murdered his
wife, Ruth Reed, May 3, appeared in
Circuit Court with the plea of in-
Speedy action was promised by
Prosecutor Albert J. Rapp, and he
hopes to give the case to the jury
late this afternoon. After having con-

fessed to the crime last spring in hope
of getting leniency, Reed was sen-
tenced to life imprisonment and hard
labor at Marquette.
His case was appealed and came
before the court during the last ses-
sion. It was held over to the present
term, when a near riot was staged
in the courtroom while one of the
witnesses was testifying.
As prosecution started today, sev-
eral of the list of 19 State witnesses
took the stand. Dr. Harold Gordon
of the University Hospital, who per-
formed the autopsy on the body of
Ruth Reed, said that the eight shots
in the woman's body "were not the
action of an insane person. The fact
that all the bullets were not fired in
quick succession and that every one
was lethal, led to his conclusion," he

Maria Olszewska Listens To
Grill Orchestra After Concert

Madame Maria Olszewska, the Ba-
varian-Polish contralto who sang for
an enthusiastic Choral Union audi-
ence last night, went after the con-
cert to sit in the League grill and
eat dry toast with hot milk. She was
tremendously interested in Michigan
students and enjoying herself im-
mensely. She sat there in a brocaded
gown with a red collar, her dark face
vivid and glowing.
"No, I have never been in Ann Ar-
bor before," she said. "I like it. I like
students and student life. It is so
different here from what it is in
Europe. I studied for a time in Mu-
nich." When I was introduced to her,
she said, "Oh, you are a student, ja?
How nice!" She sneaks English with

mainly because of its expression,
which changes continuously. Her pic-
tures, which have been posted all over
Ann Arbor, don't do her justice, since
they can't catch a beauty of expres-
sion that the camera doesn't see. Her
eyes are large, black, and brilliant.
She is fascinating to watch.
She looked so tired and very weary
seen from across the grill room, so
tired that she half sank her head
into her hands, but when she ex-
tended her hand for the interviewer
she brightened effortlessly and was
very gay and interested.
She liked to watch the dancing and
listened smilingly to "Thanks." She
liked the soft lights and the gaudy
painted screens. She was over in a
corner with her accompanist, watch-

English Play, 'Eager Heart,'

A Christmas play which promises
to be different is the boast of the
group that is to present three per-
formances of "Eager Heart" on Dec.
20 and 21, at St. Andrew's Church.
No artificial snow flakes will blow
across the platform, no wire-strung
curtains will give way during the per-
formance, no whispered cues will be

audiences have become accustomed.
"Eager Heart" was written by an Eng-
lishman, A. M. Buckton, about three
years ago and it is understood that
the local group overcame great dif-
ficulties to obtain rights for its pro-
duction next week.
