New High
In Loans
565 Students Have Been
Granted $39,155.50 So
Far This Year
Steady Rise During
last 3 Years Noted
Stephens Spikes Rumor
Of "Passing The Buck
Loans amounting to $39,155.50 have
been granted to 565 students by the
University during the period between
Sept. 1 and Oct. 1, figures released
from the business office indicated,
and it is likely that a new high for
student loans granted may be reached
for the year.
The trend of student loans has in-
creased during the last three years
and there is no reason to balieve that
this situation will be upset this year.
During the year 1932-33 loans total-
ing $85,599.90 were granted to 1,325
students and this figure was increased
to 1,791 loans granted, totalling
$99,969.93 during the year 1933-34, an
increase of 466 loans.:
The number of loans outstanding
as of June 30 increased from $271,-
285.43 in 1392-33 to $302,598.01 in
907 Given Loans
Many students receive more than
one loan during .a year but John C.'
Christenson, controller and assistant
secretary of the University, said that
last year approximately 907 different
students were granted loans.
Although the number of loans
granted .for the month of September!-
alone is high, Mr. Christenson refused
to say definitely that the loans would
exceed last year's figures. "We would
have np way of knowing how many
ioatS will be granted because some
years there is a great demand for
loans the first semester and the sec-1
ond semester the figure drops ap-
preciably, while in other years the1
situation is reversed."
A rumor to the effect that the Uni-
versity was "passing the buck to the
FERA" by reducing the number of
student loans and thereby putting a
greater responsibility on the FERA1
quota, was discredited by Boyd C.
Stephens, cashier in the business of-1
Rumor Incorrect -
"The situation is quite the oppo-
site," he said. "Students who here-
tofore have not been able to come to
the University at all are now able by
getting FERA jobs. Many of them 1
haven't the lump sum necessary for
tuition so the University gives them.
a loan for tuition, which they pay
back by working for the FERA. This,
of course, tends to increase the num-
ber of loans granted."
Less than seven-tenths of one per
cent of these loans are classed as
"bad debts" by the cashier's office, a
report shows. The total amount of
loans up to last year was $840,000,
only $5,768 are considered uncollect-

Rivalry Of Chicago And
Michigan Dates B a c k
Thirty Years
Maroons Spoiled
Good Team Record
1905 Squad Remembers
2 To 0 Defeat Given By
Stagg's Men
A football rivalry that was, thirty
years ago, the greatest in the Middle
West may assume again tomorrow
some of the fire and intensity of the
For the twenty-second time Mich-
igan will face Chicago on the foot-
ball field. Today, for Michigan, it is
just another game -a tougher one,
perhaps, than it ordinarily is, but
still not a big game. The big games
will come later -with Illinois, Ohio
State, and Minnesota -not with a
team that has failed to score against
the Wolverines in the last five games,,
a team that has not beaten Michigan1
since 1919.
Formerly Big Game
But thirty years ago the Chicago
game was the big one. Year after1
year the Wolverines had to claw
and fight bitterly to wrest the Cham-
pionship of the West from Amos Alon-
zo Stagg's gallant Maroons- and
very often they failed.
Only the tide of Yost's great point-!
a-minute teams could subdue Chi-
cago. For four years, piling up one
of the greatest football recods in the
history of the game, these teams
swept the Maroons aside as they swept
aside every team they met.
In 1905 Michigan continued its ir-
resistible march. Vanderbilt, Nebras-:
ka, Illinois, Ohio State, Wisconsin -.
team after team - and finally Ober-
lin (by a score of 75-0) were de-1
feated. Michigan had gone through 56
consecutive games unbeaten, had piled
up 2,821 points to 40 for its oppo-
nents. But that year Chicago again
refused to lie down, again it spoiled
a great Michigan team. Stagg's team
won, 2-0.
Standing Changes
Soon Michigan left the Conference,1
and when it returned ten years laterI
Chicago was no longer the team to,
be feared. New faces had risen. Chi-,
cago did not mean what it had once
meant to Michigan - it meant in-
stead a breather - a warm-up game.
Off and on for the last fifteen years
Michigan has met the Maroons. Next
year theyhave been dropped from
the schedule. Maybe when Michigan
is looking for a Big Ten opponent
just a little bitaeasier than the rest
they will be scheduled again.
But this year Chicago won't be a
pushover. Michigan has felt what it
has not felt in years, the sting of
defeat, and once again Chicago has
a chance. A wraith-like tradition of'
thirty years ago hovers over Stagg
Field today.

In Ransom By
BerryV. Stoll
Oil Man Obtains Promise
Of Wife's Return After
LOUISVILLE, Oct. 12 -(P)- "Re-
quirements" for her ransom met,
pretty Alice Speed Stoll's fate hung
on a kidnaper's word tonight, a few
hours after her husband made a wild
ride over cleared roads in centralI
Presumably, Berry V. Stoll, vice-
president of the Stoll Oil Refining Co.,
made his dash to meet the man who
has held his 26-year-old wife since
Wednesday for a $50,000 ransom or
someone agreed upon by the man.
A few hours afterward he issued
this statement:
"We have carefully followed in-
structions, met all ransom require-
ments, and are awaiting fulfillment
of promises.1
"The parties may act freely without
fear of hindrance.
The wealthy and influential Speed
and Stoll families repeatedly affirmed
by radio and newspapers that they
were eager to make terms and would
do everything necessary to the vic-
tim's return.
There was no intimation in the
short announcement as to whether
the ransom had been handed over,
to the actual kidnaper or to persons
agreed upon by him. If it meant
the money had been paid to those
having Mrs. Stoll in their power, it;
was clear that others besides the manI
who snatched her from her home were
involved in the sensational case.
It was a lone man who got in the
Stoll home in the fashionable but
remote Upper River Road neighbor-
hood Wednesday on the pretense that
he was a telephone repairman. With
a pistol he cowed Ann Woolet, the
maid, who let him in, made her tape
her mistress' hands, then tied and
gagged her.
Mrs. Stoll was in a negligee. She
had been ill. The women were alone;
in the house. When she offered him
a check to let her go, the man hit the
young society matron over the head
with an iron pipe. Bleeding, she
pleaded with him.
"If Berry comes in, I'll kill him,"
the kidnaper said, then hastened
away, allowing his victim to get only*
a blue and white checked coat.
Since Mrs. Woolet saw her rushed
out the door to a small car, the
daughter of one of Kentucky's proud-
est families has not been seen or heard
Flight To Start

DETROIT, Oct. 12 -(')- Dr. Jean
Piccard and his wife, Jeanette, the
first woman to plan a stratospheric

flight, scanned weather reports to-

would permit the take-off during the
early morning hours tomorrow.
Their huge balloon - 175 feet high

Jennings May Get Call At
Quarterback Position
Replacing Oliver
(Special to The Daily)
CHICAGO, Oct. 12.- The Wolver-
ine football squad arrived here this
afternoon and went through a light
workout on Stagg Field, but Coach
Harry Kipke still refused to decide
on the backfield which would start
for Michigan against Chicago tomor-
Meanwhile, Maroon fans refused to
concede an edge to the invading Wol-
verine team, and feeling that Chicago
would be the team to halt the Mich-
igan string of Conference grid vic-
tories ran high here.
The Michigan squad arrived here
this afternoon in good condition. Fer-
ris Jennings, the dynamic quarter-
back who will probably start in place
of Russ Oliver, reported his injured
leg as completely well and ran plays
with the Varsity squad.
Sweet May Start
The other members of the probable
starting backfield for Michigan are
Willis Ward and John Regeczi at the
halves and Cedric Sweet at fullback.
With both teams flashing an open
attack, however, Howard Triplehorn
may. be called from the retirement
whichbhe has experienced for the
past week to assume the burden of the
Michigan running attack.
With Willis Ward a permanent
fixture in the backfield, Matt Pat-
anelli will start at an end and will
shift with Mike Savage as the teams
line up on offense and defense.
Patanelli, whose rushing play has
made him a key man In the Wol-
verine defense, will play on the right
flank on defense, but will shift to the
opposite side on offense.
Between the ends the same line
which started against Michigan State
will take the field, with Jphn Vier-
giver. at left tackle, Willard Hilde-
brand at left guard, Jerry Ford at
center, Bill Borgmann at right guard
and Captain Tom Austin at right
Hildebrand will play at tackle on
defense, shifting with Viergiver.
Bartlett Not To Start
The Maroons placed much of their
hopes on their two backfield stars,
Jay Berwanger and Ned Bartlett as
well as the six-three-two defense
which may puzzle the Wolverines.
Bartlett, a sophomore will not start
the game but Clark Shaughnessy will
send him into the contest at the most
promising moment in the hope of
shaking him loose from the wide for-
mation used by the Maroons.
Defensively, the Maroons will be
led by Capt. El Patterson, whose play
behind the line has stamped him as
an outstanding candidate for all-Con-
ference honors at center.
Kipke Troubled
The Wolverines have drilled ex-
tensively on the Chicago defense, but
it will be their first actual experience
against it, a fact which has caused
no little trouble to Coach Kipke.
Interest in the game is running high
here, and even the casual Chicago
campus is taking the matter seriously.
Pep sessions were held throughout the
day and the pre-game excitement was
capped by a torchlight parade to-
night. Ticket sales are reported a
heavy here, with the possibility of a
sellout, leaving only general -admis-
sion seats in the west stand for to-
