CHICAGO, March 3. -(P)- Willis
Ward, husky Negro all-around star,
won three events today to lead Mich-
igan's contenders for the Western
Conference indoor track title to an
impressive victory over Chicago and
Northwestern in a triangular meet at
the University of Chicago field house.
Ward contributed 15 of the Wol-
verines' 64 points by victories in the
60-yard dash, 70-yard high hurdles,
and the high jump.
The Wolverines piled up well over
twice as many points as Chicago and
Northwestern, the former landing
second with 29, and Northwestern
winding up third with 24.
Dave Hunn, a Wolverine soph-
omore, won the pole vault from Chi-
cago's star, John Roberts, at 13 feet,
2 inches, and Jack Childs outfooted
the mile field in 4:22.6. Coach
Charlie Hoyt held Tom Ellerby out
of the quarter mile to give Dick El-
lerby and Starr a little experience.
Neither was good enough to beat the
Northwestern sophomore, Jack Flem-
ing, who won in 51.3 seconds. Flem-
ing, however, was unable to with-
stand the closing rush of Smith of

Michigan's Varsity hockey team
closed its 1934 season at the local
arena last night by defeating Mich-
igan Tech, 3 to 0, to win the mythical
championship of Michigan.
Johnny Sherf pushed in the first
counter a minute and seven seconds
after the game had begun on one
of his typical solo dashes.
The defensive stars of the game
were Johnny Jewell and Don MacCol-
lum. Jewell, in the nets for the Wol-
verinesfi made a total of 22 saves,
many of them of the most difficult
type, while MacCollum, playing his
usual unspectacular game, broke up
the majority of the Tech scoring
Six players wore the Maize-and-
Blue of Michigan into a hockey game
for the last time, leaving only Jewell

Roosevelt Ends Busy Year In White Huse

-Assocleed Pres. Photo
One year in office -and a tremendously busy year has passed for
President Roosevelt. Almost immediately after taking the oath March
4, 1933, he declared a bank holiday and launched a banking reform
program. A succession of decisive moves followed, bringing such
projects as the NRA, CCC, AAA, HOLC, PWA, CWA, TVA, NEC and
others. At top the President is shown taking the oath, and below in

1934's Political Turmoil: No 8:
Internal Issues Facing France

EDITOR'S NOTE: This article, writ-
ten especially for The Daily by Dr.
winnacker, will be followed by others
by faculty authorities. They too will
deal with interesting European, Euro-
Asiatic, and JEuro-American' problems.
(Of the History Department)
The recent riots in Paris wlhich cul-
minated in the so-called "little revo-
lution of Feb. 6" were largely of polit-
ical origin, though moral and eco-
nomic factors aggravated the crisis.
The common objective of the ver-
bal, printed, and finally physical at-
tacks of the people of Paris was the
Chamber of Deputies, or, more spe-
cifically, the existing majority within
that Chamber. Consequently, any ar-
ticle dealing with the recent unrest
in France must make an attempt to
explain the complicated political sit-
uation in France.
The Chamber of Deputies which is
now in session was elected in May
1932, and for the second time since
the World War the victors were the
political groups of the Left, the Rad-
ical-Socialists, a party composed
mainly of members of the less well-
to-do_ bourgeoisie, and the Socialists,
who draw their strength from the
workers in the various industrial
centers and from the small farmers
of southern France. By means of a
close' electoral alliance these two
parties were able to win nearly 70
seats in the Chamber of Deputies
from their opponents of the Right
and Center, who had supported the
recent Conservative ministries of La-
val and Tardieu. Obviously, a more
progressive governmental policy than
that of Tardieu, a sort of "New Deal"
was desired in France by a large
number of people, and consequently
Herriot, the leader of the Radical-
Socialists, became prime minister in
June, 1932.
French "New Deal"
The French "New Deal" started
with the same handicap as the one
in the United States: a huge deficit
in the national budget. Unfortunately
the parties of the Left were never
able to conquer their first difficulty,

for inflationary measures were taboo
in France, where the majority of peo-
ple were unwilling to repeat the post-
war experience, which had devaluated
the franc to one-fifth of its par
Industrialists, exploiters, and the
people interested in the tourist trade,
might clamor for inflation, but the
large arm of government bondholders,
many of them supporters of the Rad-
ical-Socialists, were opposed to it.
Under these circumstances the
statesmen of France had to turn to
the policy of deflation, which de-
manded at the same time a balanced
budget. This situation created a
hopeless dilemma for the parties of
the Left. They had promised their
electors a golden age, better business,
fewer taxes, and more munificent
social laws, and now that they were
in office, they were forced to levy
new taxes, and to cut salaries and

Freshment Iireed From
Pot-Wearing Burdent
Freshman pot wearing for this year
reached an end yesterday. As a re-
sult of action taken by the Under-
graduate Council Friday afternoon,
March 4 was set as the day after
which freshmen need no longer wear
their badge of first year men. Inas-
much as March 4 is today, and fresh-
men don't wear pots Sunday any-
way, the actual end of freshman pot
wearing for this year was yesterday.
At Friday's meeting the Council also
decided that henceforth freshman
pot wearing will be compulsory only
until Thanksgiving Day.

Michigan Has
Leading Place
In Gift Totals
Endowments 32 Million;
All Other State Schools
Are Far Below
Alumni Donate 70
Per Cent Of Gifts
Total Assets At End Of
1931 Are 58 Million; U.
Of Calif. Second
Total gifts greater than those of
any other state university in the na-
tion, and a greater percentage of the
total from alumni of the University
-these are the boasts which Michi-
gan may make on the basis of a re-
cently completed survey.
Estimates place total assets of the
University, at the end of 1931, at
$58,000,000 and of this sum $32,800,-
000, or over one-half, has come to
the University as private donations
of lands, buildings, or money. The
total covers a period of 114 years,
since the founding in 1817.
Of other state schools having large
gift lists, the University of Califor-
nia is second, but only 13, per cent
of its total amount came from alum-
ni, whereas approximately 70 per
cent of Michigan's total gifts came
from former students here. Other
Big Ten schools which are included
in the survey report total gifts rang-
ing from $2,000,000 to $20,000,000,
but in practically all cases less than
half of the amounts received came
from alumni of the schools, and one
Big Ten school reported but 12 perj
cent of its gifts as accruing from
Wilfred B. Shaw, director of alum-
ni relations, said that the survey,
which was made through his office,
resulted partially from so many other
state institutions expressing curiosi-
ty as to why Michigan receives so
many gifts from her ,alumni.
"I feel that Michigan alumni have
been accustomed to give to theJni-
versity from the beginning," 1r.
Shaw said, "and the general atti-
tude that the University deserves
support has persisted." Examples
of early gifts to the University are
the $5,000 that was raised by sub-
scription in Detroit in 1817 to start
on its way the "Catholepistemiad, or
University of Michigania," the mon-
ey being used to buy a lot and erect
a building there; and the deeding
of 1,817 acres by several Indian
tribes, proceeds of their sale to go
to the new institution with the hope
on the part of the tribal leaders that
some of their young people might
eventually receive the white man's
From this time on, through the
relocating of the University in Ann
Arbor i 1837, the gifts received
steadily increased, with the greatest
of them all coming since 1900. The
largest single gift ever received by
the University is that of William W.
Cook, whose bequest was valued at
$8,711,116. Aside from this sum, the
survey of gifts lists lands valued at
$1,976,000; buildings and improve-
ments, $11,218,000; equipment, $3,-
895,000; permanent endowment
funds, $2,753,000; and expendable
funds for fellowships, research, and
library purposes, $2,876,000.

Keep Libraries Open Sundays
Efforts of the Undergraduate Council to create a fund suffi-
ciently large to keep the Main Library, exclusive of the stacks, open
on Sundays for the remainder of the year should be commended
and supported by all students and members of the faculty.
The facts with regard to the library's closing on Sunday this
year are simple enough. The State cut the University appropriation
and the University authorities, forced to reduce expenditures to the
bone, found that it would be impossible to continue the Sunday
library. The fault for the library's closing, in other words, rests
with the State legislature.
Also quite simple is the predicament in which the students
find themselves. They need and want the library open Sundays.
There is just one way for them to get it open: to raise, totally, $375.
That sum looks large, but when it is remembered that the number
of students who use the library runs into thousands it is imme-
diately seen that only a very small contribution from each indivi-
dual will keep the library open Sundays.
The Daily believes that the Undergraduate Council's efforts
to raise the money should be supported. It believes that the library
should be open Sundays, most particularly during the period
previous to final semester examinations. The Council is contacting
all fraternities, sororities, and campus organizations through its
tryouts. It is necessary to determine, however, how many inde-
pendents are interested in this move and will contribute at least
five cents to the fund. In order to determine the number The
Daily today prints a coupon. Those who wish to see the fund raised
are requested to sign this coupon and deposit it tomorrow or
Tuesday in one of the Undergraduate Council ballot boxes, which
will be placed in Angell Hall, the Union, and the Main Library.
I wish to see the Main Library open Sundays and am
willing to contribute ............ cents to a fund neces-
sary to keep it open on that day.

Importance Of Size
In Woman's Charm
Whether large women have more
of what is called charm than their
more petite sisters will be considered
Wednesday night by the rival de-
bate teams of Alpha Nu, men's speech
club, and Athena Literary Society,
national debating club for women.
The men will insist that small ladiet
have a monopoly of that thing called
charm, while the women speakert
will attempt to prove that size hat
nothing to do with attractiveness and
"The question has been considered
before," said Dorothy Saunders, '35,
president of Athena, in discussing
the coming meet, "and decided both
for and against the smaller women.
but we hope to settle it this time
once and for all."
The students who will discuss thit
question in the two organization'-
annual humorous debate are, affirm-
ative: Charles Rogers, '35, Jame:
Finkbeiner, '35, and Karl Nelson, '37
negative: Miss Saunders, Eleanoi
Blum, '35, and Mary Mildred Mur-
phy, '35.
The question as formally stated
will be: "Resolved That the Charm
of Woman Varies Inversely As to
Her Size."

Following a day marked by dis-

Spring Parley will conclude its meet-
ings today with a general session at
9:30 a.m. in the Union.

Sessions yesterday concerned them-
selves more particularly with the
sub-topics under the general theme,
"What Can We Believe?"
Interest Shown In Economics
Great interest continued in the
topic of "Capitalism and Social
Change." Discussion led to essential
agreement on the part of Prof. Max
S. Handman of the economics de-
partment and Prof. Harold J. Mc-
Farlan of the engineering college
that the socialistic state is an ideal
toward which to strive, but differed
as to the means by which it should
be accomplished.
Professor Handman declared that
change must be made slowly within
the system, while Professor McFar-
lan, supported by Charles A. Orr of
the economics department, predicted
a social and economic revolution. .
The section on "War and the Stu-
dent," meeting separately in the af-
ternoon, joined with the economics
section in the evening. Professor
Preston W. Slosson of the history de-
partment stressed at both times the
complexity of issues involved in eco-
nomic and diplomatic problems. It
is not easy to draw a dividing line
between capitalism and socialism,
nor between the proletariat and the
bourgeoisie, he declared.
Emphasizes Freedom Of Thought
"Freedom of thinking is much more
vital than any property arrange-
ments, and'suspension of such free-
dom, even temporarily, is the most
vicious crime conceivable," he said.
"That is the view of the 'professor-
In an attempt to clear up the posi-
tion he took at the general session
Friday night, Prof. Bennett Weaver
of the English department stated be-
fore the section on "Religion and the
Church" that he did not advocate in-
i tellectual isolation but rather the ap-
plication of spiritual values to the
problems of our own day.
The Russian example was as freely
used in the section on "Sex and the
Family" as in that on social change.
Sexual education and birth control
were topics which occupied the major
time of the group.



R e q u e s t s Contributions
Fron Fraternities And
Sororities 'For Library
Letters to the presidents of all fra-
ternities and sororities from the Un-
dergraduate Council requesting a
small contribution to a fund to keep
the Main Library open Sundays were
written yesterday and will be placed
in the mails sometime today.
The letters explain that the fund,
to which the Council has already,
contributed $50 of its own money,
must total $375 if the library, ex-
clusive of the stacks, is to be kept
open for the remaining Sundays of
the year. "Should we fall short of
this sum," the letter reads, "we shall
use what money we have for each
Sunday startingat final exam week
and working back to date. Should
we raise more than $375 we shall use
this extra money to have extra help,
hired and to open the stacks."
The letter suggests that fraternities
and sororities might find it feasible
to add 10 to 25 cents to each indi-
vidual house bill and to entitle the
treasurer to make the contribution,
A member of the tryout staff of the
Undergraduate Council will contact
each individual house Tuesday to
pick up whatever sum the house
cares to contribute, the letter says.
Not only fraternities and sororities,
but other campus groups as well as
independents and faculty members,
will. be asked to contribute some
small amount, Gilbert Bursley, presi-
dent of the Council, said last night.


NRA's Allowance Of Economic
Planning May Satisfy Industry

University FER A Projects Now
Employing Over 500 Students

More than 500 students are now

eral Emergency Relief Administra-
tion's special grant to college stu-
dents, it was announced yesterday.
T h e y a r e distributed throughout
nearly every school and college of
the University, and in practically all
Most of the work being done at

a research nature and is proving to

rolled in some college or university
in January, 1934, but would be un-
able to complete the academic year
without this help. The other fourth
was to be made up of new students
who would otherwise be unable to
enter the University.
Under the new ruling, however, all
of the jobs created, more than 700
here, may be given to students in the
first class and so enable more to
continue in school that have already
completed part of their work.

If in the final analysis the Na-
tional Recovery Administration per-
mits industry to indulge in syste-
matic economic planning, the con-
cessions of industry to labor may be
entirely offset and the frequently
frustrated hopes of industry to regu-
late production in order to keep in
line with demand may be realized,
according to Prof. Charles L. Jami-
son of the School of Business Ad-
Writing in the March Quarterly
Review of the Michigan Alumnus,
Professor Jamison asserts that the
effect of the labor provision of the
NRA was to place upon industry a
heavy burden of increased costs and

standard cost accounting plus open
prices" (industry's advantages).
The potential advantage of indus-
try's "x" may be very great, Profes-
sor Jamison's article states. If the
"x" were to be economic planning
by industry through its own trade
associations to the end that produc-
tion would be governed, the result
would be more stable prices, more
certain profits, and a more profitable
prosperity, Professor Jamison pre-
