Tall, thin, Gen. Tsai Ting-Kai, "The
Poet Warrior." yesterday visited Ann
Arbor as a guest of the Chinese Stu-
dent Club.
It was General Tsai who so hero-
ically defended Shanghai, as com-
mander of the 19th Route Army
against an overwhelming Japanese
force in 1932.
The General, on a trip around the
world, speaks no English, but granted
an interview thiough his secretary,
C. S. Mark.
When asked the purpose of his trip,
General Tsai said it was largely edu-
cational. He wishes to see what the
western world is doing along indus-
trial, engineering, and military meth-

"The Hero of Shanghai" is now in
temporary retirement from the mili-

try to apply the knowledge gained
on this trip in helping rehabilitate
his country and resist further Jap-

In a low voice which trembled wit
emotion, Gimmey said he would plea
"not guilty" to the charge which Pros
ecutor Albert J. Rapp has 'place
against him. His hands shook, and h
appeared to be unable to keep himsel
under control.
Manslaughter Charge Preferred
Prosecutor Rapp explained to the
court that he recommended the man
slaughter warrant because he believe
that Gimmey was not guilty of an
criminal intent when he assaulted hi
wife. Murder charges would not b

If found guilty of manslaughter
which in Michigan is the equivalen
of third degree murder, Gimmey wil
face a sentence of from six months t(

He was arrested Thursday morning
by Detective Eugene Gehringer, aftei
physicians at St. Joseph's Mercy Hos-
pital had reported Mrs. Gimmey in a
serious condition. She had been ad-

day, a short time after receiving the
fatal blow which Gimmey has con-
fessed giving her.
When Mrs. Gimmey died, at 12:40
p.m. Thursday, her husband was ques-
tioned by Prosecutor Rapp, to whom
he told the story of the family argu-
ment which culminated in his strik-
ing his wife in the throat, causing a
fatal hemmorhage.

New Homes For
Unemployed To

WASHINGTON, Oct. 19 - () -
Three million dollars, or thereabouts,
in Federal relief funds was set aside
today for immediate construction of
12 rural-industrial communities in
which homes and farms will be leased
to destitute families.
Mr. Harry L. Hopkins, the relief ad-
ministrator, told newspapermen his
plans, displaying photographs of
homes already built by relief funds
in three such villages.
Cheaper Housing Coming
So far as he was concerned, Hop-
kins said, the day of cheaper housing
in this country was coming "damned
He said the communities would
range in size from 15 to 700 homes.
These are to be occupied by stranded
industrial families; families trans-
planted from sub-marginal farm land
purchased by the Government and
families on city relief rolls who have
"agricultural background."
The relief administrator disclosed
that 40, states now have Federal-

Plans For New
Magazine 'Are
Now Under Way
Plans for continuing a literary and
critical magazine, on the order of
that started last year by the Inland
Review, have been formulated by sev-
eral students and faculty members in-,
terested in this type of project.
No definite steps have yet been
taken towards the publication of the
new magazine, and will not be done
until after a meeting to be held Wed-
nesday for all those interested in
such a journal.
The meeting will be held Wednes-
day, at 4:30 p.m. in Room 2231 An-
gell Hall. All who are interested in
working on this type of publication
are invited to attend.
Among those who have lent their
support to the magazine are Leo
Kirschbaum, of the College of ,Engi-
neering, Otto Bird, '35, and Arthur
Carr, '35, formerly members of the
editorial board of the Inland Review,
and Robert Warshow, '37, and Morris
Greenhut, Grad., both Hopwood
Awards winners.
"The meeting Wednesday," Carr'
stated, "is being called in order to
see~whether there are enough persons
interested in a magazine of this type
to warrant its publication at the Uni-
"We urge anyone who wishes to do
so to come out and give his or her

"Ward Would Be Injured"
He declared that the sponsors of the
Ward movement say "it would be un-
Christian to discriminate against
Ward," but don't realize that it would
be just that to permit him to play
because in all likelihood he would be
injured in the game.
He further argued that the coaches
who had improved Ward's playing

whether or not he should risk that
The next speaker, Sher Quraishi,
Indian, was the first to obtain a

Harvey Smith Speaks
Harvey Smith, captain of the track
team, stated that those who were de-
manding that Ward play did not
know Ward. On the other hand,
Smith said, those who opposed his
playing knew him best and were
interested in his welfare. Smith said
that he and Ward had roomed to-
gether when the track team had gone
on trips last spring.
From this point on, the meeting,
which had until then been dominated

When the meeting was more than

discussion was continued with com-

Just before the meeting was ad-

large majority authorizing a protest
to the Board in Control of Athletics
for having scheduled the game with

Hildebrand And Savage
Michigan meets Georgia Tech here
this afternoon in the Wolverines'
annual intersectional game. The ac-
tual game has been almost submerged
in a storm of racial discriminations
during the past week and probably
half the 25,000 people in the stands
will be there to see who plays at right
end for Michigan.
A Tech squad of 33 players and
Coach Bill Alexander arrived at Ypsi-
lanti yesterday morning, came to Ann
Arbor for a short workout in the Stad-
ium early in the afternoon, then re-
turned to their hotel in Ypsilanti to
remain until shortly before game time
Past Scores Favor Tech
If either team is to be favored on
past scores it must be Tech, which
has, at least, succeeded in defeating
Clemson, 12 to 7, in a warm-up game
and scoring two touchdowns on Van-
derbilt. The Yellowjackets lost to
Vanderbilt, 27 to 12, while Michigan
State was blanking Michigan, 16 to 0.
Last Saturday Wallace Wade's Duke
team defeated Tech, 20 to 0, while
Chicago was trimming Michigan, 27
to 0.
Coach Harry Kpke took his squad
to Barton Hills for the night and
they, too, will not return to Ann Ar-
bor until shortly after noon today,
Passing Threat
The Yellowjackets showed a lot of
enthusiasm in their light Stadium
drill. A set of fast, clever backs ap-
pears to operate very deceptively be-
hind a rather light but fast-charging
line. Alexander hopes to score by
passes against what has been a very
weak Wolverine aerial defense.
However, if the Golden Tornado's
passing attack fails, Alexander feels
that he has an offensive threat in tiny
Clarence Roberts, 138-pound quar-
terback who has gained considerable
ground off tackle.
The Tech team boasts of two men
who won positions on last year's all-
southern selections: Clyde Williams,
left tackle, and Jack Phillips, full-
back. Alexander has a brother com-
bination at the guards, Jack and
Dave Wilcox. Jack plays right guard
on offense but replaces Charles Pres-
ton as a roving center on defense.
With Shorty Roberts suffering from
a leg injury Alexander said'that Mor-
ris Dean, right tackle, would come
out of the line to do Tech's punting
as long as he is in the game.
Wolverines Have Light Drill
Coach Kipke devoted Friday after-
noon's short drill on Ferry Field to a
last-minute attempt to polish a pass-
ing .attack and to giving his starting
team a chance to watch Tech plays
as demonstrated by a white-jersied
reserve squad.
The Wolverines started practice af-
ter the disastrous Chicago game with
a lot of enthusiasm but their spirit
slumped in mid-week. Yesterday they
again appeared to feel they were go-
ing places and ran through a brisk
passing drill with considerable snap.
