For $950,000,000 To
Push Relief Program

Hopkins Orders A Drive
To Keep Civil Works
Free From Graft
WASHINGTON, Jan. 27 .-(P)-
President Roosevelt asked Congress
today for $950,000,000 to continue the
emergency relief program.
That was $100,000,000 more than
the $500,000,000 for direct relief and
$350,000,000 for civil works the Pres-
ident originally contemplated asking.
His terse message to Speaker Rainey
did not specify what position was
Speculation as to whether the in-
creased figure was Mr. Roosevelt's
answer to the nationwide cry against
demobilization of the civil works by
May 1 at the latest brought a repeti-
tion at the White House of the Pres-
ident's statement that he still wants
civil works employees transferred to
public works and private industry
payrolls by late spring.
Meanwhile, as a part of his in-
tensive drive to keep civil works free
from graft and politics, Harry L
Hopkins, the administrator, today or-
dered all state administrators to
make their records available for
public inspection.
"I want to make it perfectly clear
that all civic works payrolls and rec-
ords of purchase of supplies are pub-
lic records and therefore open to in-
spectioin," okins telegraphed to allr
state administrators.
The administrator's move followed
by ao day hs order placing army engi-
neers in charge of civil works in Chi-
cago and Los Ageles. Charges of
politics in the CWA have come from
Ld9 Angeles but no hint of such has
reached here from Chicago.
Studnts To Take
Charge Of Service
For Local Church
Cuban university s t ud ents, in
search of extra-curricular activities,1
dash out of an afternoon and take
part in revolutions. But Michigan

Next Sunday morning the entire
service of the church will be in1
charge of and carried out entirely by
students, Everything from the ser-
mon to the offertory solo will be in
their hands. Only the collection will
be taken up in the usual way.
Lester Houck, Grad., will preach,
speaking on "A Young Religion."i
Houck has had some experience in;
that field, having delivered sermons]
both here and in his home town,
Port Huron.
Lyle Shumate, '34M, will be in
charge of music. Ruby Peinert, '34M,
will give a cello solo, while Ruth
Pfohl, instructor in harp, will play.

the offertory solo. The children's
choir, consisting of some 20 voices,
will be under the charge of Miss
Thelma Pfohl, vocal instructor.
This is the first time that students{
of the Congregational Church have
undertaken such a project. It is
hoped that it will develop into an an-
nual affair.

Ohio Magazine
Asks Action On
COLUMBUS, O., Jan. 27.-(-P)~
The Ohio State University Monthly,
alumni publication, currently ex-
presses the editorial wish that the
university athletic board "do what-
ever it intends to do, promptly and
with courage," on the question of
Coach Sam Willaman's tenure.
The publication stated that "it is
variously reported that Sam Willa-
man will be fired, that he will be re-
hired, that he will resign voluntarily.

Lily Pons To Make
Here Monday i"ht
Following a series of operatic and
concert triumphs, Lily Pons, prima
donna of the Metropolitan Opera
Co., will make her second appearance
on the stage of Hill Auditorium when
she sings on the Choral Union Con-
cert series tomorrow night.
Miss Pons sang in the May Festival
of 1931, after being persuaded to
postpone a trip abroad in order to fill
the engagement. She had made her
operatic debut at the Metropolitan
the season before, where she was re-
ceived with wide acclaim.
Before that time, she was unknown.
Her talent was noticed by a member
of the Metropolitan at a little theatre
in France, where she was filling an
engagement with a small opera com-
pany. He promptly cabled to New
York, and an audition was arranged
for her the next fall.
Her appearance as Lucia in Doni-
zetti's "Lucia di Lammermoor" came
as a complete surprise. From that
time, her success was assured. After
a season in New York, she filled con-
cert engagements, then an operatic
season in the Colon Theatre in Bue-
nos Aires. At every appearance she
made she was greeted with acclaim.
Lily Pons is the delight of music
critics. They describe her as "tiny,"
"airy," "diminutive," "bird-like," and
laud her with other equally apt dem-
onstrative phrases. Her small size and
phenomenal voice are the delight of
audiences, as evidenced by her pop-
ularity in concert and radio perform-
She possesses beauty, grace, and
naive charm, and, according to
Charles A. Sink, president of the
School of Music," is one of the out-
standing offerings in the 1933-34
Oil Lamps Come Back As
Bagdad Boycotts British
BAGDAD, Iraq, Jan. 27. - (R) -
Hundreds of shopkeepers and house-
holders have carried on a lengthy
boycott against British-owned elec-
tric power.
The government banished six or-
ganizers of the boycott to Iraqi Kurd-
istan. Labor leaders thereupon agi-
tated for a general strike.
The boycott was begun last sum-
mer by coffee shop owners and spread
until Bagdad at night was lighted
only by feeble oil lamps.

1934 Budget Not Ready
Because Of Uncertainty
Concerning Staff
A moton to reinstate fencing as a
Varsity sport was tabled indefinitely
by the Board in *ontrol of Athletics
at its meeting yesterday. Yesterday's'
action puts a defnite conclusion to
any agitation for reinstatement of
the sport this yer since it will be
impossible for the, board to take any
further steps in t me for the fencing
Prof. Henry C. Anderson, chairman
of the board, said that the vote not
to bring back fehcing at this time
was due entirely to financial reasons.
He pointed out that a change of
policy in regard to fencing would un-
doubtedly mean that cross-country
and gymnastics would have to be re-
instated as well, since all these sports
were abolished at the same time.
Former cross country men and gym-
nasts have not asked for resumption
of their sports.
Robert Nahrgang, '34, one of the
heads of the attempt to have the
team, of which he was a member,
brought back, appeared before the
board in person to present the case
for the team. This unusual privilege
was granted by Fielding H. Yost,
athletic director and secretary of the
board, who said he was willing to do
anything to convince the fencers
that their proposed budget has had
fair consideration.
The meeting of the board lasted
from 10 a. m. to 3 p. m. Not all of
this time was devoted to discussing
the fencing questi6nr; however. Much
of the five hours was spent in a gen-
dral discussion of the budget for
next year. There was no definite
budget prepared at this time, chiefly
because the football coaching staff
for next year is not yet certain. In
regard to the matter of coaches go-
ing to Yale, Professor Anderson said
that no mention of it was made.
Although receipts from football
this year were much above those of
1932, it is apparent that considerable
care must be taken before a budget
satisfactory to everyone is drawn up.
Professor Anderson also stated that
some of the time had been occupied
by a discussion of possible intersec-
tional football opponents for the
1935 season, although no definite ac-
tion was taken.

practical training in dealing with
problems of utilities.
In 1898 he was graduated from
Doane College in Nebraska. He re-
ceived a degree from the Chicago
Theological Seminary and until 1901
was a minister of the Congregational
Church. In 1900 an M. A. degree
was conferred on him by the Univer-
sity of Chicago, while Doane College
granted him an LL.D. in 1930.
P e r h a p s Mr. Thompson's best,
known book is "Confessions of the
Power Trust," published in 1932.
Other books are "Public Ownership,"
"Municipal Light and Power Plants,"
and "Post Office Railways." He is{

To Open Bookb
Exchange Soon
Feeling that Ann Arbor book stores
allow students too little on used
books, considering the re-sale prices
asked and the original cost to the
students of the new books, the Van-
guard Club will sponsor a Used-Book
Exchange which will open on or be-
fore Thursday, Feb. 1, according to
M. J. Wilsie, Grad., who is in charge
of the exchange.
This co-operative enterprise, which
has had a successful existence on the
campus for the past three years, will
follow the same simple plan of op-
eration of former years.
Students will bring used books to
the exchange and indicate their own
prices on cards attached to each
book. The book will then be placed
on sale at that price, and if pur-
chased, the amount asked will be re-
turned to the student whose book is
sold, minus 10 per cent for the main-
tenance of the exchange.

Thousands Of Police In
Wild Struggle To Keep
Down Demonstration
Stavisky Scandal
Cause Of Disorder
Monarchists Charge For-
mer Premier With Part
In PawnshopDuplicity
PARIS, Jan. 27.-- ()- The center
of Paris was a scene of wild turmoil
tonight as infuriated royalists rioted
against thousands of massed police.
Elaborate precautions had been
taken against a repetition of earlier
anti-government demonstrations, but
the monarchists, shouting invectives
and swinging chairs, repeatedly
charged through lines of mounted
and foot officers.
The hour-long battle followed the
resignation of Premier Camille Chau-
temps' cabinet, against whose alleged
part in the $40,000,000 Stavisky
pawnshop scandal the royalists have
staged frequent demonstrations in
recent weeks.
"Down with Chautemps!" was the
rallying cry of hundreds of rioters
who time and again smashed into the
ranks of authorities wielding lany
weapon that came to hand.
Ranks of the bluecoats were broken
as groups of 50 to 100 men struggled
throughout the Place de l'Opera and
near the Cafe de la Paix,
Magnesium flares were thrown at
the mounted officers, whose horses
panic-stricken, reared and lunged.
Every available policeman was on
duty. Firemen and guards aided In
the battle. Three blocks of helmeted
policemen were stationed around the

Blood flowed freely.

The Chautemps cabinet's downfall

Uneasiness Over War Winnings
Reinforces French AInti-Naziisrn

PARIS, Jan. 27. -(I- Uneasiness
over her hold on war-won Alsace-
Lorraine at home and desire to keep
her allies abroad are reinforcing
France's refusal to grant Hitler any
concessions in the Saar before the
1935 plebiscite.
Fear of a German attempt to
wreck the Versailles treaty by first
undermining France's position in her
regained territory on the Rhine, is
among the factors preventing direct
talks with Berlin.
Twelve billion tons of coal under-
lying the Saar belong to France by
virtue of the Versailles pact. Ger-
many is bound by that treaty to pay
France for the mines if the Saarites
vote to return their area to the Ger-
man fold and this constitutes an-
other reason why France is insisting
on strict adherence to the treaty.

Strength in the face of Hitler's
overtures must be maintained, the
committee concluded. It advised the
government that any sign of weak-
ness would constitute real danger.
If France gave ground in these
premises, parliamentary circles be-
lieve that impetus would be given
"the new Pan-Germanism's interna-
tional offensive" and the Vatican, in
view of "French hesitation," would
have "an excellent reason not to in-

religious unrest has been reported
by the French press.

population is predominantly Ger-
