That We Remain
In Political Matters


NEW YORK, Jan. 8 - () - Sena-
for Borah tonight reiterated his
faith in the foreign policy of Wash-
ington and Jefferson and defied his
critics to apply the term "isolation"
to an aloof concentration upon
America's own problems.
"It is not isolation, it is freedom of
action," he said addressing the Coun-
cil on Foreign Relations. "It is in-
dependence of judgment. It is not
isolation, it is free government -
there can be no such thing as free
government if the people thereof are
not free to remain aloof or to take
part in foreign wars.
"People who have bartered away
or surrendered their right to remain
neutral in war have surrendered
their right to govern. In matters of
trade and commerce we have never
been isolationists and never will be,
In matters of finance, unfortunately,
we have not beefs isolationists, and
probably never will be.
"When earthquake and famine, or
whatever brings human suffering,
visits any part of the human race,
we have not been isolationists, and
never will be.
"But in all matters political, in all
commitments of any nature or kind
which encroach in the slightest upon
the free and unembarrassed action
of our people or which circumscribe
their discretion or judgment, we have
been free, we have been isolation-
ists. And this, I trust, we shall ever
"If there be any truth established
by the experience of nations, it is
this: that to accommodate your for-
eign policies to the demands or in
the interest of other nations at the
peril of your own security, is to in-
vite contempt, and it seldom fails to
earn a more substantial punishment."
For the leader of the nation, Borah,
ranking Republican of the foreign
relations committee, urged the goal of
an increased and intensified patriot-
ism instilling into the heterogeneous
millions of America a lofty pride of
country with its finer qualities di-
rected along high, honorable, and
peaceful lines.
Student Takes
His Own Life In
Rooming House
William Hallensleben, 33,
Strangles Himself; Had
'Persecution Complex'
Said by his acquaintances to have
been suffering from a "persecution
complex," William P. E. Hallensle-
ben, Grad., 33-year-old student work-
ing for a Ph.D. degree in German,
yesterday took his own life in his
room at 905 Sybil St.
Mrs. George C. Tryon, landlady,
discovered the body at about 4 p. m.
when she went to Hallensleben's
room. The student had tied a shoe
string about his neck and attached
it to the top hinge of the door, ap-
parently leaning backwards until he
In a note which he left, Hallens-
leben directed that his belongings be
sent to relatives in Germany but he
gave no reasons for his action.
Friends stated that he was probably
despondent over personal matters
and that this, coupled with the com-
plex from which he was said to have
been suffering, caused him to take
his life.
In his note Hallensleben blamed
professors and fellow students for
"discriminating" against him. It is
said Hallensleben believed others
thought him a Nazi sympathizer and
a "Polish spy."

A native of Germany, Hallensle-
ben is registered at the University

Plan Parley Of
Committees On
Stu.dent Affairs
Rumor Indicates Meeting
Is Called To Consider
Liquor Question
A joint meeting of the Interfrater-
nity Alumni Conference, the Council
Judiciary Committee, and the Senate
Committee on Student Affairs has
been called by Nathan S. Potter, '98,
chairman of the alumni group, for
Saturday afternoon, and will be held
in the Union.
Mr. Potter could not be reached
last night for a statement regarding
matters to be discussed at the meet-
ing, and Dean of Students Joseph
A. Bursley stated that he was ignor-
ant of its cause.
A rumor, caused undoubtedly by
the direct similarity between the con-
ditions under which this meeting is
being held and the one held last
spring shortly before the legalization
of 3.2 per .cent beer, intimated that
recommendations may be made on
the liquor question.
At that time, the alumni presented
a list of recommendations to the In-
terfraternity Council which would
have prohibited the use of the bev-
erage on the premises of any frater-
nity house.
Action was refused on the petition
with but one dissenting vote, the
delegates expressing themselves in-
formally that they preferred to leave
the matter up to a vote of their in-
dividual national or local organiza-
Bethel B. Kelley, '34, president of
the Interfraternity Council, upon
hearing of the impending meeting,
announced that the council meeting
originally scheduled for Wednesday
would be postponed until Wednesday,
Jan. 17, so that any results of Satur-
day's meeting might be presented to
the delegates at that time.
Comstock Sees Relief
As Issue In February
LANSING, Jan. 8. -- (N)-Gover-
nor Comstock today foresaw the
probability that welfare relief legis-
lation will be a mnajor issue at the
forthcoming special session of the
Legislature in February.
Announcing the receipt of a letter
from Washington demanding addi-
tional State and local funds supple-
menting Federal relief aid, the Gov-
ernor charged county road commis-
sions had failed to use highway funds
for welfare purposes as designated
under the Kulp Act. He attributed
the present emergency to the com-
mission and the Legislature.

Wolverine Five
Defeats Chicago
Quintet, 34-18
Attack Led By Petoskey,
Jablonski And Allen As
Varsity Finds Itself
Michigan's quintet clicked for the
first time last night. The Wolver-
ines hit the boards with a fast block-
ing attack and swamped the Univer-
sity of Chicago five 34 to 18, with
Fred Allen breaking into the scoring
column for 11 points to lead the at-
tack. Captain Petoskey followed
closely with nine points, while
"Loose" Jablonski crashed through
for eight.
The Maroons opened the scoring
with a foul-shot by Petersen, center,
who hung up the point in the first
minute of play. That score was all
Chicago got until the final minute
of the first half when Petersen again
scored, this time a field goal from
the foul line region to the right. He
bkok- away 4ae-4 r the tally-and
made a long shot from the dead run.
Petersen's three points represented
the Maroon scoring for 20 minutes.
Chicago Cracks
Meanwhile the Maize and Blue
quintet cracked the Chicago defense
for nineteen points. Breaking fast
and working for block-shots, pivot-
shots, and close ones, the Michigan
five put on an exhibition of accurate
passing and deadly shooting which
surprised the spectators. It was a
complete reversal of form.
The second half was all even as far
as scoring was concerned, with Mich-
igan holding the edge on play and
the Maroons being forced to rely for
the most part on long-shots. Each
team made 15 points, five field goals
and five fouls, but Cappon started
his stream of substitutes at the end
of 10 minutes of play, Plummer re-
placing Jablonski. Rudness Oliver,
Ford, Regeezi, and Fishman followed
Plummer into the game, only Pe-
toskey of the starters playing all the
way through.
Following Petersen's successful
foul shot, Jablonski put the Wolver-
ines into the lead with a field goal
closely followed by Allen with an-
other two-pointer. Allen missed a
foul shot, but Zit Tessmer came
through with one to complete the
first five minutes of play. After Ja-
blonski broke through for another
two points putting the Wolverines
into the lead at 7-1, Chicago took
time out, but they were unable to
stem the tide. With eight minutes
to play, Tessmer took a pass under
the basket and counted, Allen scored
again quickly with another short
Rout Goes On
Another two minutes elapsed be-
fore Petoskey took a back-pass from
Allen, and drove fast to score on a
dribble-in. Tomagno hit the basket
for the first time a moment later,
when he scored one-handed from the
foul line, Petoskey followed with a
one-handed shot from the sideline
a minute later.
Petoskey opened the second-half
scoring with a long shot from far
to the right of the ackboard. Haar-
low of Chicago got away on a fast
break and scored from close in after
two minutes of play. A minute later
Jablonski tallied a neat tip-in shot
following an attempt by Allen, and

minutes of play and a moment later,

Old Time Political Feud Back
Of Kemp-Sanders Election Fi lit

WASHINGTON, Jan. 8. -(/P) -
Back of the battle between Mrs. Boli-
var E. Kemp and Jared Y. Sanders,
Jr., over the sixth Louisiana congres-
sional district seat lies a heritage
of bitter factional politics with Sen.
Huey P. Long the storm center.
Although she denies having been a
"Long candidate"- in her disputed
election of Dec. 5, Mrs. Kemp had the
support of the Long organization,
which, she says, "always supports the
strongest candidate."

tion in the district fought the Long
forces without success in an effort
to elect their candidate, Paul Borron.
The Sanders feud with Huey Long
dated far back of this local election.
Sanders' father, a former governor of
Louisiana and a former Louisiana
representative in Congress, was one
of Long's first and most bitter po-
litical enemies. These enemies grew
rapidly in numbers after Long be-
came governor in 1928 and began or-
ganizing his political machine.
