New Clues Are
Discovered In
toll Abduction
Sudden Move To Search
Woods Is Interpreted As
Death Indication
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 13 -(P)-
What appeared to be blood stains on
a nearby boathouse pier and a mys-
teriously torn telephone book were
found late today shortly after Barry
V. Stoll had broadcast another frantic
plea to his wife's kidnaper.
The spots on the pier were noted
by three youths while police and fed-
eral agents combed the brush and
woods near the handsome 16-acre
Stoll estate. The sudden move which
began this morning has been inter-
preted by at least one police partici-
pant as indicating the family feared
Mrs. Stoll had met death from the
kidnaper. The husband's latest ap-
peal indicated the same feeling.
"In her present weakened condi-;
tion, even a day may be too long," he
declared. The 26-year-old society
woman was ill with a cold when slug-
ged and forced from her home last
Efforts were made immediately by
investigators to determine whether
the stains of the pier and those found
on a blanket inside the open boat-
house might be blood. They also
worked to determine whether there
was any connection with the adbduc-
tion in the latest clues to enter into
the baffling case.
The telephone directory had 65
pages torn out. The last page missingf
was opposite the one containing the
names of the Stoll family. The Har-
rod Creek section of the book showed
some score of names marked by a line
drawn across them. Black finger-
prints were on the directory.;
Stoll's appeal late today followed
his announcement of yesterday that,
he had complied with all the require-,
ments of the kidnaper who snatched
Mrs. Stoll from their home last Wed-
nesday and demanded 50,000 ransom.
Faculty Members
Sign Ward Petition
A petition seeking endorsement of
its stand on the Willis Ward affair
by prominent persons and organiza-
tions on campus was being circulated
yesterday by the "United Front on
the Ward Issue."
Leaders of the movement last night
claimed the signatures of more than
ten prominent professors and the
backing of three negro fraternities
and one negro sorority.
The petition states that its signers
believe if Ward is barred from the
Georgia Tech game it is clearly a case
of unjiust racial discrimination, and
that they therefore demand his par-

Canon Bell To
'Open Baldwin
Talks Tonight
Whether Religion Is Valid
Racial Experience Will
Be Discussed
Prof. David Mattern
To Lead Glee Club
Churchman Gives Speech
Before Faculty Meeting
At Union Luncheon
Whether religion is an outgrown
superstition or a valid racial expe-
rience will be discussed at 8 p.m. to-
night at Hill Auditorium in the first
Religious Assembly of the year by
Canon Bernard Iddings Bell, this
year's Baldwin lecturer.
The University Glee Club will sing
under the direction of Professor Dav-
id Mattern. The speaker will be in-
troduced by Roderick Howell, '35,
chairman of the student committee
for the Baldwin lectures.
Speaks At Luncheon
At a luncheon yesterday at the
Michigan Union, before the faculty
committee, Canon Bell spoke upon
the factual basis for religious educa-
tion and referred to his class-room
experience running through 14 years
as lecturer at Columbia. Professors
DeWitt Parker, Leroy Waterman, Wil-
liam A. McLaughlin, Eric A. Walter,
and Charles T. Olmstead, with Dean
Joseph Bursley, Dr. Edward W. Blake-
man, and the Rev. Henry H. Lewis of
St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, made
up the luncheon company.
Dr. Bell is convinced, he said, "that
the chief difficulty of undergraduates
in relating religion to modern thought
comes from their not only not having
any religion to relate, but also not
having any idea about what religion
Religion, he said, "is not mere senti-
ment or prejudice or feeling, but a
thing perfectly definite in fact and
perfectly logical in theory."
S. C. A. Is Sponsor
The lecture tonight is not about
any particular religion but about
religion as such. Many religious
groups are co-operating with the Stu-
dent Christian Association, which is
sponsoring the lecture.
There will be two other lectures.
One will be at 4:15 tomorrow, and the
other Tuesday at the same time, with
both lectures scheduled for Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
Dr. Bell will be available for inter-
views by individuals or groups, it was
announced. Appointments for per-
sonal interviews may be made through
Mrs. C. D. Hume, secretary of Harris
Hall, at the door following the lec-
ture, or by telephoning 7735.
Stratosphere Flight
To Face More Delay
Postponement of the Piccard's pro-
jected stratosphere flight yesterday
at the Ford Airport in Dearborn
means a delay of at least three or
four days before preparations can
again be made, according to Ralph
H. Upson, 1913 winner of the Gordon
Bennett Balloon Race Cup, four-time
National Elimination winner, and
former member of the aeronautics de-
partment here.
"Steadily increasing wind velocity
and an approaching low in atmos-
pheric pressure will make the flight
out of the question for the next few
days," Mr. Upson said yesterday when
he returned from the airport. He

pointed out that the 150-foot high
gas-bag cannot be inflated during a
wind velocity greater than five miles
an hour without great risk of losing
the bag or spilling the gas becauseI
of any small gust.

the time the call for the band was
issued, but student officers of the or-1
ganization telegraphed them orders
from Bernard F. Hirsch, acting con-
ductor, to return to Ann Arbor for
the occasion.
It was learned last night that Jo-
seph E. Horak, '35, head cheerleader,

sistants in cheers. for the returning
Both John C. Healey, '35, president
of Michigamua, and Dexter M. Good-
ier, '35, president of Druids, an-
nounced last night that members of
these societies would be on hand to
assist in welcoming the team and
urged students to take this opportu-
nity to show members of the team
that their support is not only of thet
"fair weather" variety.

If You Want A Fan
Dancer, Just Call
Up FairManager
CHICAGO, Oct. 13. - ") - Some
14,000 Fair employees - from fan
dancers to patrolmen - today have
but a single thought --"What's going
to bring in the bacon when the Fair
closes for keeps, Oct. 31?"
About 10,000 others now at work in
the exposition grounds don't have to
They're going right back into posi-
tions in factories or offices of exhibi-
tor firms in whose employ they have
been throughout the Fair's showing.-
The Fair management has under-
taken, along with its big problem of
disposing of the physical structures of
the Century of Progress, the task of
trying to find places for nearly 4,000
- its own payroll list.
But not much has been done yet,
Lenox R. Lohr, said. He expects, how-
ever, to see many of his "family"
placed in other jobs during the next
three weeks.
Only 82 have left for jobs elsewhere
in the last three weeks. Another score
quit to go to college.
As for the thousands unplaced?
"Chicago is helping," Lohr said. "In
the last few days, I've had a number
of calls from firms asking us to nom-
inate four or five from our personnel
for positions after the Fair closes."
The new positions range from de-
partment store jobs to places in the
packing firms, he said.

Wolverines Lose Second
Shut-Out Game Of 1934
Grid Season
Jay Berwanger Is
Star For Maroons
Regeczi Only Redeeming
Feature In Playing Of
CHICAGO, Oct. 13.- Michigan was
shutout for the second straight time
in the 1934 season here today when
Jay Berwanger led a good Chicago
team to its first victory over Mich-
igan in 15 years. The Maroons scored
four touchdowns and made two con-
versions to whip the impotent Wol-
verines, 27 to 0.
Michigan's championship spell is
apparently broken for the time being
and it was just another football game
for the Maroon players who swept
Michigan's ends time after time for
long gains. Berwanger and his soph-
omore understudy, Ned Bartlett, were
consistently outrunning and out-
smarting the Michigan ends and sec-
ondary to pile up first downs.
The center of the Michigan line was
stronger than it was a week ago when
Michigan State pounded it for long
gains. Chicago's aerial attack was
weak, but their skill in boxing the
Michigan ends and tackles to shake
Berwanger loose was deserving of
Fans Go Wild
Twenty-five thousand Chicago fans
went mad when Berwanger dove over
for the first touchdown on the open-
ing play of the second quarter after
his pass to Baker had placed the
ball on Michigan's one-yard- line as
the first period ended.
It was the perfect culmination for
a week of snake dances and pep meet-
ings for the Maroon students and
fans. Their delirium increased pro-
portionately as the other three scores
were quickly run up during the second
half and they were yelling "make it 50
to 10" in the last quarter.
John Regeczi was the spearhead of
the Michigan attack. Starting at full-
back in a backfield composed of Jen-
nings at quarter, Ward at the other
half and Sweet at full, Regeczi's fine
punting and running from punt for-
mation kept the Wolverines going in
the first half.
The Wolverines started strong,
gaining the first first-down of the
;ame after six minutes of play on
line bucks by Regeczi and Sweet and
a sneak through tackle by Jennings.
Whitey Aug entered the Michigan
backfield in the first quarter, with
Mike Savage leaving the game and
Ward shifting to a flank. Aug pro-
vided an intermittent spark to the
Wolverine running attack, but failed
to impress the Chicago defense.
Michigan Tacklers Sloppy
Michigan again looked weak in fun-
damentals, with sloppy tackling fea-
turing their play throughout the
game. The Wolverine line was out-
charged and outplayed except for
intervals at which times the cham-
pionship spark returned.
Michigan's ends took the biggest
punishment of the day, with the Chi-
cago attack pointed at them from
their wide formation. Patanelli and
Savage were frequently boxed out of
the play and Ward failed to stop the
sweeps of Berwanger and Bartlett,.
Chicago, with Berwanger kicking,
gained frequently on their punting as
quick-kicks were sent over the Mich-
igan safety man. Neither Jennings nor
Regeczi, who went to safety when
Oliver replaced Jennings, appeared at
an advantage in taking Berwanger's
low kicks, frequently misjudging them

and allowing many to get past.
Passing Attack Failed
The Michigan passing attack func-
tioned on but one occasion, as Oliver's
passes failed to click. Late in the
second period Oliver faded back to
pass from midfield and completed a
long throw to Ward on Chicago's 24-
yard line.
The play, however, was galled back
for interference before the pass was
made and the penalty seemed to take
the spark from the Wolverine at-
Chicago counted again midway in
