Bo a r d Of Directors Of
Alumni Association Puts
Plan Into Effect

Launched In 19271

Program Will Be Made
Permanent Feature O f
Alumni Activities
A Ten-Year Program for financial
aid to the University was inaugurated
by the board of directors of the Alum-
ni Association at a recent meeting.
This plan makes permanent the
Ten-Year Program of the alumni
launched in 1927 by the late Elmer J.
Ottaway, then president of the asso-
Although the present program was
launched by Mr. Ottaway on the eve
of the depression, and though its
planned activities were curtailed by
resulting economic conditions, it suc-
ceeded beyond expectation, and many
of the projects adopted by various
University Clubs at that time have
gone through to completion.
Took Many Forms
These projects took many forms,
some were gifts to the University in
the form of money, others endowed
lectureships, scholarships, and fel-
lowships, still others gave collections
of materials to various campus li-
braries, museums, and laboratories .
Under the new plan voted by the
directors this program will be made a
permanent feature of alumni activ-
ity, and every ten years, starting in
1937 after the completion of the pres-
ent, a new program will be launched.
Celebration Planned
After the completion of the ten year
period there will be a Jubilee celebra-
tion on campus, the first one to be
held in 1937. This Jubilee and all
succeeding ones will fall on a decen-
nial anniveisary of the founding of
the University.
Participation by alumni in this pro-
gram of aid to the University will be
through University of Michigan Clubs,
alumni classes, Alumnae Chapters,
and individuals.
Under the present plan each of
these organizations or individuals will
select a definite objective for each
ten-year period with aid of University
and alumni officials.
The program will be under the di-
rection of Emory J. Hyde, president
of the Alumni Association, until the
expiration of. his present term of of-
fice. At that time a permanent Di-
rector of the Michigan Alumni Ten-
Year Program will be appointed.
Restrictions On
Export Of Gold
Are Repealed

Gents, co-eds, are you lonely, date-
less? So asks the newly founded
campus agency which styles itself,
"Cupid's Official Helper," and which'
goes on to prescribe a remedy for the
afore-mentioned sad state of affairs.
For the small sum of 25 cents per
date the Campus Date Bureau guar-
antees to correct the lonely, dateless
conditions though officials of the or-
ganization state emphatically that
satisfaction is not guaranteed. How-
ever, the preference of clients are
taken into consideration and every
effort is made, according to the
manager, to meet all requirements.
"Cupid's Official Helper" is in real-
ity a trinity made up of three under-
classmen, all of them new on campus,
who see this as their great contribu-
tion to University life. They con-
ceived the idea after reading about
similar institutions in operation on
other campuses, notably at North-
western and Wisconsin, and after
observing the great need for such an
organization here.
The scheme is so newly put into
operation that it is impossible as yet

to predict its degree of success. The
preliminary ads were run in The Daily
only last Thursday, and they elicited
no immediate response, though an
irate landlady reports approximately
25 telephone calls Saturday night
while the owners and operators of
the business were all out, perhaps
carrying on a little practical investi-
gation concerning the dating situa-
Unfortunately, all the calls were
from the "gents" addressed in the
advertisement so that the young bus-
iness men are considering taking a
woman into partnershipin order
to interest the weaker, and appar-
ently shyer, sex.
The plan is to keep on file a minute
personal description of each client,
and 9. list of the social activities in
which he wishes to participate, to-
gether with his preference as to the
appearance and personality of his
date. Needless to say, these files, when
and if they come into existence, will
be absolutely private.
According to its originators, this
will prove a sure-fire method of bring-
ing kindred souls together. All that
is needed now is a little co-operation
from the feminine element


Ne ro Says He
Shot Lyons In
Student Waylaid, Robbed
A f t e r Protesting, Say
Police Officers
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 12.- (P) -
Police Captain A, S. Bradley an-
nounced late today that Russ Griffin,
19-year-old Negro, confessed he shot
and killed Lawrence Leonard Lyons,
30, son of New York missionaries,
claiming he did so in self defense.
The body of Lyons was found early
today in Little Harlem, Negro section
of Los Angeles.
Captain Bradley related that Grif-
fin, alias George Johnson, told him
he was walking home from a beer
parlor armed with two pistols when he
met Lyons and an argument started.
Griffin recounted how Lyons wrested
one of the guns from him and shot
at him, the officer said.
The negro youth assertedly de-
scribed drawing his remaining gun
and shooting Lyons in the forehead.
Lyons, a graduate of Yale and Co-'
lumbia, was the son of Dr. and Mrs.
Willard Lyons, of New York, who re-
cently made a survey of missions in
the Far East for the Rockefeller Foun-'
dation. He had been studying at the
medical school of the University of
Police reported Lyons had been
playing bridge earlier. in the evening,
and apparently was held up as he was
driving alone in his car, and was
forced by the two gunmen to drive
to the Little Harlem district. There,
instead of surrendering his wallet, he
attempted to fight his captors, and
the fatal shooting followed.

On River Site,
'This Is Our Last Stand,'
Gov. Moeur Tells Troops
In PublicMessage
PHOENIX, Ariz., Nov. 12. - (P) -
Commanded to "repel an invasion" of
Arizona's rights. National Guardsmen
today were mobilized and ordered by
Gov. B. B. Moeur to proceed imme-
diately to the site of the Parker dam
to prevent any construction work on
the Arizona side of the Colorado
The mobilization was ordered when
Gov. Moeur failed to hear from Wash-
ington that work on the Federal proj-
ect had been held up pending settle-
ment of Arizona's claims.
A zone on the Arizona side of the
dam site, where a pile bridge is being
constructed preparatory to actual
work on the dam, was placed under'
martial law Saturday by Governor
Ickes Deprecates Move
In Washington, Harold Ickes, sec-
retary of the interior, said that he.
could "see no reason for the Arizona
governor's calling out troops."
Half the power to be originated at
the dam had been allotted tentatively
to Arizona, Ickes said. A large aque-
duct is to carry water across the Cali-
fornia desert to Los Angeles.
"Arizona is to be congratulated that
its financial condition is such that
she can afford to call out the National
Guard," the secretary told news-
papermen. "However, I believe there
was no necessity, because it is a mat-
ter which ultimately will have to be
settled in the courts."
Appearing at the National Guard
Armory where the troops were pre-
paring for an Armistice Day parade,
Gov. Moeur issued the mobilization
orders, then reviewed the guardsmen.
'This Is Our Last Stand'
The soldiers, including machine'
gunners, wore their regimental in-
signia of a gila monster and the mot-
to: "Cuidado" -"Beware" in Span-
This is our last stand," said Gov.
Moeur in addressing the troops.
Overalled workers yesterday hauled
a pile-driving derrick back to the
California side of the river. They
explained that "we don't want any-
one from Arizona monkeying around
the derrick, which cost about $20,000."
When the troops arrive, Major F.
I. Pomeroy, of Mesa, will be placed
in command with the title, "Com-
mander of the Colorado River De-
tachment, Arizona National Guard."

Slosson And
Shepard Talk
Against War
Committee Against War
Sponsors Open-Air Rally
In Front Of Library
Economic System
Bad, Speaker Says
Modern Warfare Migh t
L e a d To Civilization's
Fall, Slosson Declares
A miscellaneous group of more than
200 students heard Prof. Preston W.
Slosson, of the history department,
and Prof. John F. Shepard, of the
psychology department, address an
open air anti-war meeting yesterday
in front of the library.
The meeting, sponsored by the
United Front Committee Against War,
was begun shortly after 10 a.m., when
classes had been dismissed for ob-
servance of Armistice Day, and came
to a close just before the 'Varsity
band marched down the diagonal to
join the R.O.T.C. for the parade to
Hill Auditorium.
After Michael Evanoff, '35L, the
chairman of the meeting, had weath-
ered some spasmodic heckling to give
his ideas on "the double-edged sword
of war and fascism," Professor Slos-
son explained to a sober audience his
opinion of the last war and of the i
ways to prevent another.
Warfare Called A Nuisance
Though he called the United States
participation in the World War "just
and necessary," and named Wood-
row Wilson "one of the greatest
statesemen of all times," Professor
Slosson declared that modern warfare.
has become "an intolerable nuisance" I
that might lead to a collapse of civili-
zation far worse than the fall of:
Asserting that war is a result of the
failure of foreign policy, he prescribed
as preventatives universally sup-
ported arbitration machinery, such
as the World Court, the League of
Nations, and international treaties.
Professor Shepard attributed war
to the widespread policy of striving to
sell to foreign countries without buy-
ing from them, a practice, he said,
of every nation except Russia.
Blames Economic System
He blamed this "paradox" on the
institution of individual action, and!
declared that the only way war can
be abolished is by getting rid of the
present individualist economic sys-
Professor Shepard was followed by.
Eugene R. Kuhne, '35, who also de-
clared that the fault lies with the
present economic system and that as
long as the fundamental evils of the
profit system remain there will be
no peace.
The open air meeting grew out of
the anti-war rally held Sunday night
in Natural Science Auditorium, at
which the motion calling for the
meeting was passed. The committee
secured the two speakers and printed
announcements of the gathering the
same night.
Vicknell Addresses Rally
The rally was addressed by Dr. N.
J. Vicknell, Detroit war veteran, and
Max Salzman, both connected with
the American, League Against War
and Fascism. Evanoff was the chair-
man of this meeting also.1
Vicknell said he had come to Ann
Arbor chiefly to repay "those forty-
five students who went to Detroit last
May Day and were brutally beaten

by the fascist police."
He deplored the rapidity with which
the next war crisis was approaching
and pleaded for a realization of the
true horror of war.
Salzman charged that the New Deal
is simply an introduction to fascism
in the United States, that Hitler is a
puppet of the munitions makers, and
that only the fear of a proletarian
revolution is temporarily deterring,
the war-makers.
Indian Cemetery Is

The discovery of nearly an acre of
old Indian burial ground near North-

of the theory and practice of medi-

Great Lakes division of the Anthro-

The sum represents a slight de-

The decreased earnings of real es-
tate holdings were cited as being
largely responsible for the decline in
income in a report compiled by Julius
E. Schmidt, investment officer of the
University. These real. estate hold-,
ings are practically all in Michigan.
Investments Explained
The report shows investments di-
vided as follows: bonds, $3,132,116.91
or 54.78 per cent; mortgages, $1,399,-
547.85 or 24.48 per cent; real estate,
$704,595.31 or 12.32 per cent; stocks,
$191,549.49 or 3.35 per cent; balance,
5.07 per cent, consisting of land con-
tracts, notes, trust certificates, and
$242,359.61 cash. '
In addition to these investments,
student notes representing loans to'
needy students, amounted to $302,-
598.01 on June 30, 1934.
Bond holdings are diversified as
follows: government and municipal,'
29.83 per cent; railroad, 18.53 perz
cent; public utility, 36.09 per cent;
industrials, 0.96 per cent; Canadian
government and municipal, 6.40 pert
cent; foreign, 0.02 per cent; real es-1
tate, 8.16 per cent.-
Much Of Interest Paid .
A total of 91.19 per cent of all in-e
terest due on the entire bond port-
folio was paid during the year.-
Practically all of the University in-t
vestments represent endowment orf
trust funds given by individuals forg
stated purposes, it was explained.
Therefore, almost none of the ex-
pendable income and none at all oft
the principal can be used for general
University operating expense. The
report states that trust funds aim to
give a reasonable income, with per-1
petuation of the principal.

Ohio State Will Not
."ear"Varsity Rand;
Detroit Lions Will
Those ardent football enthusiasts,
the Varsity bandsmen - 100 boys who
never miss a game - won't see Mich-
igan in action against Ohio State Sat-
urday, but they're not going to let a
week-end pass without playing for a
football crowd.
The band will be the guests Sunday
of the Detroit Lions at the University
of Detroit Stadium when the Detroit
professionals engagehtheSt. Louis
Gunners (thelatter name beingthe
new alias for the team formerly called
the Cincinnati Reds.
Still glowing from a successful
week-end in Minneapolis 10 days ago,
the band is determined not to be
cheated out of a game by the lack
of funds for a trip to Columbus, and
will furnish music for the Detroit
crowd and introduce some new ele-
ments into professional football when
it turns its marching talent to the
spelling of "LIONS" on the U. of D.
In a year singularly devoid of out-
of-town trips by bands of the Big
Ten, Michigan fans have had no op-
portunity to observe two bands on
the Stadium field here since the State
game. But word was received over
the week-end that 125 members of the
huge Northwestern University band'
will make the Ann Arbor trip Nov.
24, their second appearance in the
city in three years.'

Armiis tice
In Meeting4
Doctor Brashares Is Main
Speaker; Many Others
On Program
Parade Held Before
'Hoping To Bring Utopia
To Earth Many Went To
War,' Says Brashares
With the statement that the world
is now one in its needs, tasks, victor-
ies, and despairs as the keynote, stu-
dent and local patriotic organizations
united yesterday to honor those who
died in the World War.
Ceremonies, held in Hill Auditor-
ium, followed a parade along East
and North University Avenues by the
Varsity-R.O.T.C. Band, Company K
of the National Guard, the Reserve
Officers Training Corps regiment, the
American Legion drum and bugle
corps, and various veteran's groups.
The opening of the program, an
organ solo, was followed by an address
by the Rev. Charles W. Brashares, of
the First Methodist Church. Dr.
Brashares eulogized the war dead as
"men who failed to get their just re-
wards on this earth." He commented
on the love of life which these men
had, even as all other people, but
said "there must be somewhere where
they will receive according to the good
they did on earth."
Armistice Was Millennium
The belief which many had in
answering their country's call was
that they were helping in bringing
Utopia to earth, Dr. Brashares said,
and he told how they answered "with
stout hearts, to do their best amidst
the awful situations.
"And in the fullness of time, at the
eleventh hour of the eleventh day of
the eleventh month, five and eleven
years-ago, came Armistice. Many were
those who could never again hear
earthly trumpets however - those
who had gone west -beyond the set-
ting sun. It is with the thought of
them as the foremost thing that we
celebrate the Armistice."
Dr. Brashares closed his address by
saying that, whether we know it or
not, we have come into a world re-
lationship, and the world is one for
Lynch Gives Invocation
The invocation was given by the
Rev. John S. Lynch, pastor of St.
Thomas church, and the benediction
by Rabbi Bernard Heller. Achilles
Taliaferro played an organ solo,
"Piece Heroique," and Mark Bills
sang Kipling's "Recessional."
The program closed with the play-
ing of "The Star Spangled Banner"
by the Varsity Band, and of Taps by
two buglers of the national guard
company. Among those on the plat-
form were Ann Arbor's few surviving
veterans of the Civil War, veterans of
other United States campaigns, May-
or Robert A. Campbell, Lieut.-Col.
Frederick W. Rogers, members of the
Army and Navy Club, and University
administrative officers.
Dr. Carleton B. Pierce, president of
the Army and Navy Club, presided.
Architects Studying
Inexpensive Homes

Feeling that at present there is a
scarcity of the small low-rental
homes and that the demand for this
type of housing is on the increase,
the College of Architecture is prepar-
ing its students to meet this concrete
situation by concentrating all its de-
sign classes on developing plans for
inexpensive homes.
To make the problem more realis-'
tic, a certain plot of land within Ann
Arbor has been selected as the fic-
tional site for these houses. Various
types are being developed, from small
double homes at a cost of $6,000, to
large housing schemes to take care
of 4,500 people. For the most part,
the type of building suitable to house
married student couples or profes-
sor families is the new primary aim.

Permission Not Needed
For Foreign Exchange
WASHINGTON, Nov. 12. - (P)-
Restrictions upon transactions in for-
eign exchange, imposed when the
treasury was initiating its attempt to
regulate the value of the dollar
abroad, were removed today by Sec-
retary Morgenthau.
The requirement that treasury per-
mission be obtained for all shipments
of currency and transfers of credit
abroad was eliminated and in its
stead was substituted one that those
dealings in sums exceeding $5,000 in
any week report to the nearest Federal
Reserve Bank so that a tab might be
kept upon movements of capital.
Thomas Jefferson Coolidge, assis-
tant secretary of the treasury, said
that the new order would permit
people to "take their money out of
the country" whenever they desire
to do so.
"Heretofore," he added, "they have
had to ask permission. We have been
accustomed to grant such permission.
Now they do not have to ask this
permission. It will have no economic

eign value still continues.'
