LANSING, Jan. 9.-(P) -The
most far-reaching program ever pro-
posed for a special session of the Leg-
islature was agreed upon today by
Governor Comstock and the legisla-
tive council.
More than a score of highly con-
troversial issues will be laid before
the law-making body when it recon-
venes in a second extra session about
the middle of February. The admin-
istration-legislative council recom-
mendations will range from a con-
stitutional convention to consolida-
tion of governmental units and from
revival of the famous insurrection
bond measure to small loan interest
rates.
The ;program, as announced by
Governor Comstock following a long
meeting with the legislative council,
included:
Revision of the election laws, in-
cluding bills to legalize and make
mandatory pre-primary conventions.
Re-introduction of the $30,000,000
insurrection bond bill.
Measures designed to promote
summer tourists and recreational ac-
tivities in Michigan, p r o b a b 1 y
through appropriations for promotion
work.
Creating of an official State com-
mittee to co-ordinate and supervise
the activities of the University of
Michigan, Michigan State College,
the College of Mining and Technol-
ogy, and the state teachers colleges.
This would not involve a constitu-
tional amendment. Present governing
boards of the institutions would re-
main, but the committee would seek
to draw together the work of the edu-
cational institutions.

Send Approval
ires To O.S.U.
The following two telegrams of
approval of the anti-R.O.T.C| move-
ment at Ohio State University were
sent yesterday to President George
W. Rightmire and Donald Leach,
student pacifist leader, by four
Michigan organizations - the Van-
guard Club, the Socialist Club, the
National Student League, and the<
Methodist Student Guild.t
"President George W. Rightmire:
"Many Michigan students anxious-
ly await decision concerning students
who oppose compulsory militaryt
training. We believe it is your duty
to stand by American traditions of
freedom for the individual. Com-
pulsory military training violates
these principles. You are in a posi-
tion to show what a real leader can
do despite pressure by special inter-
ests and a misinformed public." t
"Mr. Donald Leach:
"We Michigan students approvel
your courageous stand against warI
and subsidized militarism. What-t
ever your President's decision is, car-i
ry on as you have begun. In eventI
of dismissal we invite you to the
University of Michigan where suchl
resoluteness of action is much
needed."

WASHINGTON, Jan. 9- () -
Senate investigators were told to-f
day that Walter F. Brown, post-t
master general in the Hoover Ad-
ministration, destroyed official cor-s
respondence before leaving office ande
had awarded air contracts withoutr
competitive bidding.I
This testimony was quickly deniedt
by Brown in New York.

Yale Wants Entire
Michigan Football
Staff, Rumor Says
NEW YORK, Jan. 9. - (A')- De-
velopments today pointed strongly
toward the engagement of Harry G
Kipke, of Michigan, 1922 All-Amer-
ica halfback and present head coacl
of the Wolverines, as the next head
coach of the Yale gridiron squad,
despite strong administrative feeling
that T. A. D. Jones, famous "Old
Blue," should be recalled to take
charge.
Kipke and his entire staff will be
the choice in a precedent-shattering
shakeup at New Haven, if the Uni-
versity's executive authorities accept
the majority wishes of the specially
selected football committee now con-
ferring with Malcolm Farmer, direc-
tor of athletics, in New York.
The sessions of this committee of
eight members, including Farmer,
have been held in secret so far but
it was learned authoritatively today
that it stood 6 to 2 against the re-
engagement of Jones, and in favor of
a complete break with tradition, for
the best interests of Eli football, by
engaging a conspicuously well-
equipped "outsider."
Five of the six proponents of a
"clean house," it was said, favored
the selection of Kipke, while the
other suggested Ossie Solem, new
head coach at the University of Iowa.
Meanwhile, at New Haven, official
confirmation of negotiations with
Ivan Williamson, captain and star
end of the 1932 Michigan team, led
observers to believe that his pros-
pective engagement as freshman
coach for 1934 at Yale would be the
forerunner of the hiring of Mich-
igan's entire coaching staff.
"Kipke will come to Yale, along
with his chief aides, Jack Blott,
Franklin Cappon and Wally Weber,"
said the New Haven Courier-Journal.
"Williamson is slated to be installed
as the coach of the freshmen."
Beer Gardens
To Be Under
Strict Control
Committee Probably To
Recommend Many Dras-
tic Measures Soon
Control of Ann Arbor's beer estab-
lishments will be more strict in the
near future, it was indicated at a
meeting of the Common Council's
ordinance committee and 15 leading
citizensrheld last night in City Hall.
Apparently the Council will be rec-
ommended to order"beer cafes to
shut their doors at 11 p. m. or mid-
night on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday, and Thursday, and at 12
midnight or 1 a. m. Friday and Sat-
urday. Probably there will also be
an attempt made to prohibit danc-
ing in beer cafes, to oust floor shows,
and to force cafes to give up their
"rathskellers" and s e c o n d - story
dancing space, which are illegal un-
der present provisions.
Favor Only One Store
Prevailing sentiment, as expressed
by the civic leaders and the ordi-
nance committee, seemed to favor
the licensing of only one establish-
ment, the State liquor store, to sell
spirits.
The troublesome East of Division
Street Beer Ban problem was largely
shelved on the grounds that it was
still an amendment to the city char-
ter and had not been repealed by the
State Liquor Bill. One prominent
government critic who wished not to

have his name used told The Daily
last night, however, that he thought
the State Liquor Bill "undoubtedly"
repealed the East Side Beer Ban.
He based his opinion on Section 52
of the Bill which states in part that
local acts and ordinances conflicting
with the Bill are repealed.
Petition Is Possibility
In the event that a definite ruling
is made to the effect that the city
charter amendment still stands, stu-
dent leaders will soon push an initia-
tive petition for definite repeal of the
Beer Ban. Between 500 and 600 sig-
natures would have to be gained be-
fore the petition could be submitted
to the voters at an election.
The University faculty was repre-
sented at the meeting by Prof. Rob-
ert C. Angell of the sociology de-
partment, Prof. John B. Waite of the
Law School, Mrs. H. S. Mallory of
the psychology department, Prof.
Henry C. Anderson, head of the me-
chanical engineering department,
and Aldermen Leigh J. Young and
Walter C. Sadler, of the ordinance
committee. The stuidnt hod wa

Jones To Give
Fourth Faculty
Talk Of Series
Literary Scholarship And
Contemporary Criticism
Is His Topic
"Literary Scholarship and Con-
temporary Criticism" is the subject of
the fourth University Lecture to be
delivered by Prof. Howard Mumford
Jones of the English department, at
4:15 p. m., Jan. 18 in Natural Science
Auditorium.
Professor Jones is one of the eight
outstanding faculty members who
haverbeen selected to speak this year
under the new system by which Uni-
versity professors have been substi-
tuted for speakers from other Amer-
ican institutions and foreign scholars.
Dr. Frank E. Robbins, chairman of
the committee on lectures, stated
that the reasons for the new program
are twofold; to acquaint students
with their own faculty members and
to meet a smaller fund.
Professor Jones was recently
awarded the Jusserand Medal for his
work "America and French Culture,
1750-1848" by the American Histor-
ical Society. He has also published
several other books, including biog-
raphy, poetry, drama, and criticism.
The three preceding lectures were
given by Prof. Heber D. Curtis of the
astronomy department; Dr. Carl E.
Guthe, director of the museum of an-
thropology; and Prof. E. C. Case of
the geology department. All lectures
are open to the public without
charge.
Owner Of Chicago
Shop Explains Fire
CHICAGO, Jan. 9.-(P)-Israel
R. Warshawsky, president of the
auto-parts company whose ware-
house and store was destroyed by a
$1,000,000 fire last night, told inves-
tigators today that he was confident
that the blaze was not incendiary.
He told Thomas J. Sheehan, fire
attorney, that even though the plant
was insured he would suffer a heavy
loss. He said that he was in good fi-
nancial condition and offered to al-
low the fire attorney to examine his
books.
Firemen had reported numerous
explosions in the course of the fire.

Five Girls Testify
In Berrien County
Delinquency Trial
NILES, Mich., Jan. 9-- (P) -Five
girls, all under 16, who precipitated
a one-man grand jury investigation
of juvenile delinquency in Berrien
county with sworn statements nam-
ing 130 other girls and several men
and boys, completed their testimony
today in the first session of the in-
quiry.
Prosecuting Attorney Harvey W.
Holbrook, who ordered the inquiry at
the request of Attorney General Pat-
rick H. O'Brien, said at the conclu-
sion of today's testimony that the
130 girls named in the statement
would not be called,
When the hearing resumes at 1
p. m. tomorrow, he said, testimony
will be taken from some of the 10
men and boys for whom subpoenas
have been issued. Five of them ap-
peared today, but none was ques-
tioned.
He said warrants would be issued
for several men, on the basis of tes-
timony already taken.
German Student
Will Be Buried
ere Tomorrow
Funeral services for William P. E.
Hallenslepen, University graduate
student who committed suicide in his
room at 905 Sybil St. Monday, will
be held here, it was announced last
night after University authorities
had communicated with his parents
in Germany.
Word from Hallenslepen's parents
requested that the University Ger-
man department, in which Hallens-
lepen was trying for a doctor's de-
gree, take charge of the arrange-
ments. The body is at present in Zulz'
Funeral Home, 402 W. Liberty St.,
and will probably be buried in For-
est Hills Cemetery tomorrow. ,
Doctors at the Health Service re-
ported yesterday that Hallenslepen
had been over to see them a number
of times during the past few' weeks,
and appeared to be suffering from
extreme nervousness. Nothing that he
did on those occasions led anyone to
believe that he would take his own
life, Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director
of the Health Service, said.

Conferences Are
Nearing Harmony
Many Gallons Poured Into
Roads During Troubles,
But No Shortage Felt
CHICAGO, Jan. 9. -- (W) -An
angry mob of farmers halted a Soo
Line train near Burlington, Wis., to-
day, boarded it and dumped seven
carloads of milk, a total of about 12,-
000 gallons.
The efficient organization with
which the farmers worked to halt the
train demonstrated their rapid sys-
tem of communication.
However, predictions that the Chi-
cago milk blockade would be raised
within 12 hours came tonight after
violence in the embargo reached a
climax.
All Night Conference
Representatives of the farmers and
of the Chicago distributors went into
conference expected to last through-
out the night over a plan of settle-
ment which leaders of both sides in-
dicated would be satisfactory in its
final form.
The proposed agreement provided
for a reported price to farmers of
$1.85 per hundred pounds of milk, to
be paid by all dealers under mandate
of the agricultural adjustment act,
companion measure of the NRA.
It was drafted by officials of the
pure milk association, farmers' or-
ganization, after violence appeared.
to be getting out of hand in some
sections and both the state and Fed-
eral governments had acted toward
intervening.
Injunction Issued
Federal Judge John P. Barnes is-
sued a temporary injunction re-
straining pure milk officials and
members from interfering with op-
eration of two ildependent dairy
companies. The Federal court took
action because the companies were
assigned to escort trucks through the
pickets from Watertown, Wis.
The state's action was an an-
nouncement from Gov. Henry Hoer
that highway police would prevent,
further dumping of milk or halting
of trucks and that additional police
would be sent to any areas asking
them. Mayor Edward J. Kelly, of Chi-
cago, had appealed to the governor
for action.
The strike, with hundreds of farm-
ers participating and highly organ-
ized by telephone communication, be-
came so effective today that consid-
erably less than 5 per cent of the
normal supply of milk entered Chi-
cago. There were complaints from,
parents of small children that they
could obtain no milk, but hospitals
and other institutions were supplied.
Cream Supply Low
Some restaurants cut down the
amount of cream served with coffee,
but all said there was no cause for
alarm, that they were receiving
quotas from their regular dairy com-
panies.
Burning of a truck on Lakeshore
Drive, smashing of windows of cash-
and-carry milk depots, and spilling
of hundreds of gallons of milk on
highwayssurrounding the city for
100 miles was included in the vio-
lence.
In moving toward settlement of
the strike, Don B. Geyer, general
manager of the PMA, called a meet-
ing of 300 members of the associa-
tion's advisory committee, represent-'
ing all locals of pure milk. It was
they who called the strike and, Geyer
said, only they could halt it.9
Secretary of Agriculture Wallace
has promised to enforce with govern-
ment licensing any equitable agree-
ment reached in the conferences.

McCarl Refuses To
Approve U.S. Plan
In Motor Buying
WASHINGTON, Jan. 9 - (,') -
J. R. McCarl, the comptroller gen-
eral, has refused the interior depart-
ment approval of payments for new
motor vehicle equipment on the
grounds the contract was not given
to the low bidder, a Ford dealer.
The amounts involved in the three
separate contracts rejected were not
large, but the actionrwasdregarded
as significant with regard to the
Ford-NRA issue, since the Northwest
Motor Co., of Bethesda, Md., the
Ford dealer figuring in previous con-
troversies with the Government, was
low bidder on 700 motor units for
the interior department last week.
The department, in awarding the
contracts for the twelve units on
which McCarl has refused payment,
said the "Ford Motor Co. is not a
member of the NRA."
McCarl's decision recalled his rul-
ing of last November to the ef-
fect it is not necessary that a firm
sign the code for the industry, al-
though the products must be manu-
factured in accordance with its pro-
visions.
Michigan Wins
Over Canadian
Ice Team, 2-1

Wolverines Display Form
In Victory Over Flashy
Amateur Champions
Combining dashes of speed and a
gallant defensive stand, Michigan's
undefeated hockey team conquered a
fighting Kitchener sextet, 2 to 1 last
night on the Varsity Arena ice. Time
and again the crowd of 1,200 people
was brought to its feet as the strong
forward line of the invaders took the
puck up the ice, only to sink back
in relief when the phenomenal goal-
tending of John Jewell repulsed the
threats.
The game was a thriller through-
out. Play was fast and rough, fur-
nishing the fans with what was
termed as the best exhibition of
hockey ever seen on the ice here.
Twelve penalties were meted out by
Referee Taub, three going against
the Wolverines in the final period
when men were most needed on hand
to stem the frantic attempts made by
the Dutchmen to knot the score.
Wolverines Outplayed
After a wobbly start that saw the
Wolverines outskated, outmaneuv-
ered, and generally outplayed, the
Varsity found itself at the end of the
first period on the short end of a
1 to 0 count. Kuntz, visiting for-
ward, made the most of the presence
of Sherf in the penalty box late in
the period, and on a pass from
Kampman that for the only time
during the game, drew Jewell out of
position, flicked it into the cords for
the lone Dutchman tally.
Michigan came back fast in the
second stanza after being pepped up
during the intermission. Avon Artz,
following a two-week's illness, car-
ried the puck up the ice through the
opposition first-line many times in the
opening minutes of the period, and
finally, in a melee around the Kitch-
ener goal, the brainy center grabbed
the disc and drove it into the net
so hard it bounded back among the
players and was even disclaimed by
Goalie Voll.
Both teams played desperately
from that time on, raining shots on
the two goalies in an effort to assure
victory in that period. Artz received
a cut lip in a mixup that laid him
out on the ice, and the players on
each side came close to blows with
their opponents several times. Neither
team could count for a score and the
period ended with the score tied at
one goal.
Sherf Tallies Winner
The fast and loose play continued
into the third period, Michigan draw-
ing the majority of the penalties.
Michigan was playing a cautious
game waiting for the breaks, while
the Kitchener offense went down into
Wolverine territory after the puck.
The break came for the Wolverines
when, in the middle of the period,
Johnny Sherf dashed through the
entire opposing defense and lifted
the puck past Voll's arm into the goal
for the winning point.
The stands went wild, and the Fly-
ing Dutchmen began a five-man of-
fensive rally that virtually swamped
Jewell. But the plucky goal-minder
threw himself-in front of those drives
in a display of saves that overshad-

Of $2,000 A Year
Nominated By Fourth Ds-
trict Board Over Frank
Cooper, '35L
Wilfred S. Sellars, 22, son of Prof.
Roy W. Sellars of the philosophy de-
partment was named yesterday as
this year's Rhodes scholar from
Michigan.
Sellars was graduated from here
last June and immediately went to
the University of Buffalo where he
was an instructor of philosophy.
While here he was active in campus
activities and was president of the
Michigan Socialist club besides be-
longing to Phi Kappa Phi and the
Acolytes. He attained a scholarship
average of slightly lower than A.
Frank Cooper, '35L, was the other
candidate selected by the University
for the Rhodes nomination. Both
Sellars and Cooper were candidates
for the scholarship last year but
Frank H. Verhoek, of Grand Rapids,
a graduate student at the University
of Wisconsin, was appointed as
Michigan's representative.
The three other Rhodes appointees-
in the Great Lakes district, compris-
ing Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, and In-
diana, were C. Lyman Emrich, Illi-
nois, R. M. Goodwin, Indiana, and
Edward D. Johnson, of Ohio.
The selections were made in Chi-
cago Monday by the fourth district
committee.
Qualifications for the winning of a
Rhodes scholarship are based on the
principles outlined in the will of the
late Cecil Rhodes, British empire
builder, who left the greater part of
his fortune to found the scholarship
bearing his nane, Through his di-
rection scholarship, personality, and
interest in athletics, are the qualities
on which the award was based.
Investigation In
Gibson Murder
JoinedBy Toy
DETROIT, Jan. 9.-()-Prose-
cutor Harry S. Toy today joined the
forces investigating the death of Mrs.
Virginia Gibson, whose body was
found on a highway west of Detroit
last week after it apparently had
been struck by at least one automo-
bile.
Assistant Prosecutor W. C. Buck-
ingham was assigned to the investi-
gation, and Prosecutor To said the
persons already questioned in con-
nection with the case would be re-
called.
Much of the information about
Mrs. Gibson's actions before her
death, authorities said, has come
from J. Elwood Stowe, Ann Arbor
broker, who volunteered the informa-
tion that he gave Mrs. Gibson and a
male companion a ride in his car on
the night of her death, releasing
them at a spot near where Mrs. Gib-
son's body later was found.
One theory entertained by inves-
tigators is that Mrs. Gibson, who was
deaf, may have wandered onto the"

road and been struck by a passing
automobile.
Liquor Blamed For
Fatal Riot At Kioto
KIOTO; Japan, Jan. 9.-(A)-
Liquor was held largely responsible
by railway authorities today for a
panic in which 80 persons lost their
lives.
The authorities said unsteady
drinkers of sake caused the commo-
tion in the railway station yesterday
which resulted in an uncontrollable
stampede. Liquor, they added, in-
creased the crowd's unruliness.
Scores of persons were crushed and
suffocated at the foot of a packed
stairway when one, falling, cried out,
and the crowd broke into a mad,
shifting mass.
More than 100,000 persons had
jammed tbheir way into the station to
bid farewell to naval recruits leaving
for the naval base at Kure.

Foreign Policy C hanged At
Montevideo M eeting -Reeves

Self restraint of the American del-
egation; coupled with a reversal of
the foreign policy of the United
States, brought about a great change
in the Seventh Pan-American Con-
ference at Montevideo last Decem-
ber, Prof. Jesse S. Reeves, of the po-
litical science department, told a
meeting of the International Rela-
tions Club last night.
"Our Secretary of State, Cordell
Hull, was not an outstanding leader,
but for what reason, we cannot say,"
Professor Reeves said, pointing out
that the delegations of Argentina and

tially a success, in that it made some
advancement in thecodification
movement, while the need for courts
of arbitration and councils of con-
ciliation is adequately taken care of
by the machinery of the League of
Nations.
However, the conference was un-
successful in its failure to take hold
of the war situation between Bolivia
and Paraguay, Professor Reeves
stated. "It was a pity that the ques-
tion was not attacked, and that the
conference did not remain in session
until the problem was settled," he
said. "The war is a disgrace to the
