Care and treatment of tuberculosis1
in men and women of high school and
college age was the feature of the
talks and discussion by members of
the Michigan Tuberculosis Associa-
tion, Michigan Trudeau Society, and
Michigan Sanatorium Association at
a banquet last night at the Union
which concluded the all-day annual
meeting of the organizations.
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director of
the University Health Service, an-t
nounced the results of the health
knowledge test given to freshmen the]
first week of school which dealt with
tuberculosis. He did not attempt to
draw any conclusions, stating that
time for detailed study of the re-
sults had not been available.
"Tuberculosis Health Hazards of
the Young Adult," was the topic dis-
cussed by Dr. W. J. V. Deacon, State
Health Statistician. Dr. Deacon stated
that from the ages of five to 22 women
showed a sharp rise in their suscep-
tibility to the disease. Men showedua
-similar rise, Dr. Deacon said, buta
added that the high point for men
was between the ages of 45 and 49.
Death Age Advanced
"Twenty-five years ago," he said,
"both men and women showed their
highest death rate in the twenties, butt
today we have pushed the high rate
for men to the late forties, thus add-c
ing 25 years to the productive life of,
tubercular males. There is no reason,
with intensive work, why the same re-
sults may not be obtained in the case
of women.':
Dr. Deacon said that it was essen-t
tial to test children while still in
school. "The schools are able to do the
work in the ordinary course of]
things," he stated, "but it is very hard
to get men and women to take at
tuberculin test after they have lefti
school or college."
Dr. Bruce.: H. Douglas, president oft
the Michigan Tuberculosis Associa-
tion, said that investigation had1
shown that a great many high school]
and college athletes had been found
to be suffering from tuberculosis inF
various stages. "The strain of athletes
reduces resistance to disease in manyt
cases," Dr. Douglas stated, "and more
often than not, the healthy looking
athlete is infected. Consequently, highc
school and college athletes should be
tuberculin tested and X-rayed beforeR
being permitted to engage in competi-]
State Will Aidt
He added that where facilities are
not available for such examination,
the State investigating staff stood
ready to aid insofar as they were able.
Dr. Douglas emphasized the fact thatt
the hazards of tuberculosis are ever
present, and since athletics do
tend to increase them, that no cost
was too great to eliminate the hazards
as far as possible.
Seal sale directors from all over
the State met at 9:45 a.m. in the
Union to lay plans for the 1934 Christ-,
mas Seal sale which begins on

Thanksgiving Day. Means of educat-
ing the public to the need of buying
Christmas seals was discussed, and a
plan was mapped out whereby the sale
of this year may pass that of last,
which was the largest since 1929.
Luncheon At Union
At a luncheon given in the Union.
by the Michigan Tuberculosis Asso-,
ciation Dr. Douglas reviewed the work
of the past year, and Dr. Paul Voelker,
State superintendent of public in-
struction, told the audience of 125
persons the part that the school
should play in tuberculosis control.
All of the officers of the Michigan
Tuberculosis Association were re-
elected by the board of trustees, ex-

committee who was replaced by Dr.

Sinister Sophs See
Secret Summons As
Symbol Of Success
A modern Paul Revere was abroad
last night. He was a member of theI
class of '37, and he did his work well,
His means of conveyance was not a
horse but a telephone, but even so he'
covered a lot of ground.
Yes! The sophomores are arming
for the fray. No longer are the fresh-
men to be allowed to strike the first'
blow. A message has gone out, a plan
has been formed. Woe to the men of ,
'37. For the first time in recent years'
the sophomore class is confident of
winning the fall games.
No amount of bribery - no threats
of coercion -nothing can make the
haughty leaders of '37 reveal the'
secret of their good cheer. Their lips
are sealed to all but members of their
own class. To them they issue a1
blanket invitation to join the modern
minute-men. Sophomores claim that
the freshmen will be:
"Out of their beds, all of a shiver,
In a wild dash for the Huron river."

concern expressed by Mayor Neville
Miller, of Louisville, for Mrs. Stoll's
"Our first wish is the safe return
of the girl," Nathan said. "We must
be assured she is safe before we can
do anything else. We would rather
have that than anything else, even if
it meant we could not make a case or
even an arrest."
Meanwhile, relatives of Berry V.
Stoll, Louisville oil executive and hus-
band of the victim, awaited word from
the kidnapers, but said no contact
had-been made. The Stollhtelephone
lines were kept cleared in hopes of a
call. Mrs. Stoll was ill with a severe

False Tip Thwarts
Sheriff In Heroic
Search For Killer
Washtenaw County deputy sheriffs
almost caught the murderers of lit-
tle Lillian Gallaher yesterday - al-
most but not quite.
A dramatic wire flashed into the
sheriff's office here stating that a car
containing Merton W. Goodrich and
his wife, hunted throughout the na-
tion as the killers of the 11-year-old
Detroit girl, was speeding to Ann Ar-
bor. They were on the Ann Arbor
road, the wire stated, and had just
passed through Plymouth.
The excited deputies hustled down
the stairs of the county jail, armed
to the teeth. And, parked directly
across the street, the hunted car met
their gaze.
They ran to the car, jerked open
the door, and saw a mild looking
couple who turned out to be, not vic-'
ious kidnappers, but Mr. and Mrs.'
William E. Heaton of Chicago.
After questioning the Heatons, the
Washtenaw deputies reluqtantly
wired Oakland county officers and
State police that the search was off.

Ruthven And
Huber Speak.
To Graduates
Annual Convocation And
Reception Are Held At
Nearly 600 students of the graduate
school, their wives, and members of
the various faculties heard addresses
by Pres. Alexander G. Ruthven and
Dean G. Carl Huber yesterday in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre at the i
annual graduate school convocation.
President Ruthven warned against
"the tendency of graduate students]
to specialize too much." Many things,
are needed for a well-educated man,1
he said, and "there is a danger of
forgetting this fact."i
"We are passing into an era of con-
science," he said, "and a knowledge
of art, of music, and of the incentive
for religious thought"-- are needed.
"Education is continuous," the
President added. "And the expert
who knows nothing else is no better
and deserves no more credit than the
star athlete who knows nothing else."
"However," he concluded, "the ex-
pert can be educated too, and, to dos
so and have a full, well-rounded life i
should be the goal.''
The President praised Dean Huber i
as "a great scholar, honored and re-
spected throughout the world."
In his address, which preceded that
of President Ruthven, the graduate
school dean stated that "a notable
feature of the school is that there
are few fixed and rigid rules for regu-
lating the number of students." 1
During the depression, he claimed,
"750 have come out of the graduate I
school with degrees, 100 of these doc- 4
Dean Huber said that he at first
feared many who received degrees
from the graduate school did not find
positions, but stated his belief that
the great majority of them did.
He praised the junior college sys-
tem and inferred that, in the future,
all teachers in those schools will be
In closing, he left this thought with
his audience, "success lies with the
individual, and a great factor is anj
optomistic appreciation of opportun-
An informal reception and dance in
the League followed the convocation.

PARIS, Oct 11- (P) - That the 10
shots which Petrus Kalemen fired still
choed through Europe was evidenced
today when Jugoslavs staged anti-
[talian riots and French political ob-
servers confidently predicted that
remier Gaston Doumergue's cabinet
vould resign in mass for reorganiza-
. Albert Sarraut's resigriation as min-
ister of the interior early today was
xpected to be only the first of official
eads that will roll in consequence of
the tragedy.
The new boy king of the southern
Slavs, 11-year-old Peter, prepared to
leave Paris for Belgrade with his
nother, Queen Marie, as official
ources here and at Rome expressed
)elief that the anti-Italian demon-
trations in Jugoslavia would not en-
langer Europe's peace.
Net Closing on Accomplices
'French police were firmly convinced
that an international terrorist outfit
was back of Alexander's assassination.
Officials of the Surete Nationale an-
iounced they were steadily drawing
the net around suspected accomplices
>f Kalemen.
A chain of evidence already in the
ands of police led them to believe
that they would be able to solve the
nurder of the Jugoslav king.

Italian Attacked
An employee of the Italian consul-
ate was severely pummeled but not
seriously injured by crowds at Ljubl-

ander's death. Police escorted the
Italian home as the crowd hooted
Italy derisively.
Authorities here and at Ljubyjana
denied that the Italian official actu-
ally had been manhandled or that
there had been public demonstrations
with speeches against Italy.
Jugoslavia's decision to honor her
dead king for his efforts to tighten
the bonds tying Serbs, Croats, Slov-
enes and other races into one nation
was taken at today's session of the
National Parliament, and enthusiastic
acclaim greeted it.

both houses of Parliament sitting at

Christian Announces Recitals
Will Be Continued This Season

Greville Bathe of Philadelphia, who
has been working for the last two
years on a biography of Oliver Evans,
considered one of the greatest engi-
neers this country has ever produced,
has for the last few days centered his I
activities in the Transportation Li-
brary of the University.
Oliver Evans is credited with the
invention of the high-pressure steam
engine, an invention that came about,
the same time as James Watt's dis-
covery of the low-pressure steam en-
gine, and given much greater im-
portance by engineering authorities
than Watt's creation. Although his-
tory makes little or no recognition,

steam, and is considered as the first
vehicle to make its appearance on
the roads of this country.
Bathe became sufficiently interest-
ed in the machine to make a model
of it. After months of research, he
completed the model, and it is now'
on display in the Franklin Institute
of Philadelphia. His research awak-
ened his inter'est in Oliver Evans' fur-
ther possibilities as a great engineer.

his first appearance in Ann Arbor in
this series. He will give a recital on

Professor Christian is commencing
these Wednesday afternoon organ re-
citals again this season due to the
large number of requests that have
been sent to the School of Music for
them. Among the outstanding con-
certs given in last year's series was

wide use of the tonal resources of the
famous organ in Hill Auditorium.
His first number will be "Largo in

el. Continuing, he will play, "An-

and "Passacaglia and Finale on Bach"
by George Schumann for his next
selections. 'He will conclude his pro-k
