Mr. Okeson* has been active as a
football official for more than a
quarter of a century. Prior to that
time he attended Lehigh University,
from which he graduated in 1900 as a
civil engineer after starring three
years on the football team.
Worked As Engineer
He worked as an engineer for the
Standard Oil Company, Shiffler

Company in New York City.
Mr. Okeson returned to his alma
mater in 1917 in the capacity of
alumni secretary. Later he became
secretary-treasurer of the University.
During the fall for several seasons
after he graduated from the Univer-
sity, he coached football. Later he
took up officiating and continued to
officiate until 1926, when he became
commissioner of officials for the East-
ern Intercollegiate Athletic Associa-
tion. In December, 1932. Mr. Okeson
was made chairman of the N.C.A.A.
Football Rules Committee, which
position he has held ever since.

City Woukt Not Be
Able To Buy Land
Homes Rented To Welfare
Families Will Pay Off
I OriginalExpense
The FERA model housing proposal
will be accepted by Ann Arbor in the
opinion of Everett DeRyke, editor of
the Milan Leader and chairman of
the Washtenaw County Emergency
Relief Commission.
DeRyke said that under the pro-
posed plan, $250,000 would be ap-
propriated by the federal government
to pay for all costs of labor and ma-
terials, while the city would pay
$20,000 for the 20-acre grant of land
needed for the project.
Although the City Council decided
at a meeting held Nov. 13 that the!
city could not afford to pay cash
for the land, they were willing to
consider the proposal if means could
be found of securing the title of the
property without making a down pay-
ment. The 50 model homes which
would be built by FERA workmen
would, when completed, be rented out
to welfare families. The rentals
would go to pay the city for the ex-
pense of buying the land.
"The greatest burden that the
FERA has to carry now is the rent
load," DeRyke said, "and if the pro-
posed housing bill goes through, we
would then be able to greatly defray
our budget."
Denies Accusations
He denied accusations that FERA
workers had been threatened with
the loss of their jobs if they failed
to vote as they were told in the recent
In repudiating charges, he said, "It
has come to the attention of the Com-
mission, that certain charges were
made regarding the entering of poli-
tics into the FERA organization. I
wish to call your attention to the
speech of President Roosevelt on Nov.
16, 1933, in which he gave specific
instructions that party politics or
political preference should have no
place in the giving of relief, whether
direct or work. Frequently during
the past year we have had bulletins
and instructions from the State head-
quarters regarding this particular
phase of administration of welfare
"Charges were made during the re-
cent campaign that certain persons
were removed from relief on account
of political preference. They have
been carefully checked and investi-
gated personally by the members of
the Commission. In no case have
these charges been substantiated. In
one case a man was removed from
the work division and placed on direct
relief because of the closing of the
job. Evidently this was misconstrued
both by the recipient of welfare and
by his friends.
Matter Investigated
"We have gone into the matter very
carefully, and in no case have we
found that any of our employees or
foremen on the jobs have in any way
taken an active part in the campaign
and in party politics of any kind."
DeRyke admitted that the most
difficult problem that the FERA has to
face is the reluctance of men on the
relief rolls to go into private industry
even when they are offered jobs.
"In many cases," he said, "it is dif-
ficult for a man to swallow his pride
enough to come to us for help the
first time, but after a while his morale
is undermined, and he sees no reason
why the federal government, since it
is spending so many millions on re-
lief, should not continue to support

Churchill Says
Charges 'Ambitious And
Hungry Powers' About
To Pounce On England
LONDON. Nov. 16.- (P)- Winston
Churchill, former chancellor of the
exchequer, tonight charged Germany
with "rearming at utmost speed" and
pleaded with Great Britain to make
herself without delay "the strongest
air power in the European world."
England, he said in an address,
"lies inviting attacks from ambitious
and hungry powers."
The former chancellor's speech, re-
broadcast in the United States, came
only shortly after J. H. Thomas, sec-
retary of dominions, declared at New-
port that "war talk" was entirely un-
Thomas emphasized that the Brit-
ish government "neither directly nor
indirectly, privately or in any, way
whatever, has commitments on the
continent" and asserted his opinion
that "there is no justification for fear
that war is imminent."
Churchill, however, declared streng-
thening of the air force necessary to
avert another war.
"As we go to and fro in this peace-
ful country with its decent, orderly
people, going about their business
under free institutions and with so
much tolerance and fair-play in their
laws and customs, it is startling and
feartul to realize that we are no

(By Intercollegiate Press)
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Nov. 16. -
Although a firm believer in the wide
use of experts and scholars in ad-
visory public positions, Dr. Detlev W.,
Bronk, professor of biophysics at the;
University of Pennsylvania, thinks1
much of the criticism directed toward c
scholars in public life is justified.
"In the first place," he said, "the
scholar in public life has occasionally
been tempted by power and has as-
sumed positions for which he has had
little training and no practical experi-
ence. The second danger is that he:
loses the disinterested and objective
attitude which should characterize
men of learning.
"If he sacrifices unprejudiced findsl
and opinions in the heat of political
dispute and emotion, if he uses his
position as an authority to support
unconsidered views, he weakens hisc
position and brings discredit upon hisc

Lineup For Entire Game
COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 16--Sixty-
eight thousand fans will crowd every
nook and cranny of Memorial Stad-
ium here tomorrow and sixty-two
thousand of them will be there for
one purpose - to see Ohio State's
strong football team bury Michigan
under an overwhelming barrage of
The remaining 6,000, a mere hand-
ful of rooters in the immense white
horseshoe, will be hoping for the big-
gest upset of the current season, a
Michigan victory.
On every side one hears Buckeye
fans demand a four or five touch-
down margin of victory tomorrow.
It is "revenge" season in earnest for
Michigan's traditional opponents and
the Buckeyes have a lot to get re-
venge for, especially an 86 to 0
trouncing in 1902 and a 40 to 0 score
in 1905, along with a 13 to 0 beating
last year which many of this season's
players remember vividly.
While Coach Francis Schmidt,
making an auspicious debut in the
Big Ten this year, is exhorting his
team to "pour it on" just before game
time, Coach Harry Kipke will be
telling his players, beaten in four con-
secutive Conference starts, that this
is the game they want to win, tell
them to "shoot the works" offensively,
and play defensive football like they
did for 30 minutes in Minnesota.
Buckeyes At Peak
On the surface the Buckeye team is
at the peak for this game. Schmidt
has been pointing for it ever since
he replaced Sam Willaman, who
couldn't beat Michigan. They fea-
ture a powerhouse running attack
built around High Scorer Frank
Boucher, a passing attack which
swept them to a 33 to 0 victory over
Chicago last week, and an outstand-
ing punter in John Kabealo.. Captain
Regis Monahan, making a bid for an
All-American guard position, leads a
powerful, fast-charging line which
will be only slightly outweighed by
the heavy Michigan forwards.
Schmidt will not announce a defi-
nite lineup until. game time, but it
is probable that Frank Fisch, Dick
Heekin, Frank Boucher, and John
Kabealo will comprise the Red and
Gray's starting backfield. Buzz Wet-
zel will probably appear at fullback
during the game and Jack Smith,
speed merchant halfback who has
been out with injuries since the Illi-
nois game, will also get into the game
in place of Heekin or Boucher.
Kipke Maintains Silence
Mystery has shrouded Kipke's
plans for tomorrow ever since he
barred correspondents from practice
Tuesday afternoon. For three days
the Wolverines worked in absolute
secrecy. Kipke broke his silence long
enough to announce that a leg in-
jury suffered on Tuesday would keep
Cedric Sweet out of the game, 'and
that John Regeczi would take his
place at full, leaving room at left
half for Chris Everhardus.
George Bolas made a strong bid
for the starting quarterback berth,
but will have to be content with re-
placing Ferris Jennings some time
during the battle.
Considerable doubt still exists as
to whether Captain Tom Austin, who
was kept out of practice all week with
a slight attack of influenza, will
be able to remain in the game very
long. If he is forced to retire Tage
Jacobson will take his place.

States American Disarmament
Would Be Inspiration To World


"I am absolutely against the great
armament program of the present
Administration, and if I were in the
position to dictate the policy of the
United States, I would disarm calmly,
and completely," stated Dr. Charles
M. Sheldon, world famous author and
lecturer, yesterday in an interview.
Dr. Sheldon added that if America
were to disarm and keep but a small
army and "one or two ships," it would
be a great inspiration to all the world.
"America would be proclaimed in his-
tory as one of the greatest nations
of all time."
"We have nothing to fear from
Europe or Japan," he continued.
"Japan has her hands full with China,

that the professional diplomats, byI
their secret negotiations, probably did
more than any other group to start)
wars and added that "less than 50
men started the last catastrophe that,
caused the death of millions of men."
"If two per cent of the young men
in the world would refuse to go to
war, we would no longer have this
curse with us," Dr. Sheldon said. "Of
course, some leaders state that war is
inevitable and that we cannot change
human nature. In my opinion, the
one hope for man lies in the fact that
he can change. We established democ-
racy, abolished slavery, and gave
women the right to vote, and yet some
say human nature can not change."
Dr. Sheldon decried the fact that

FErA rrests
Because the newly formed FERA
freshman college in Ann Arbor satis-
fies the necessity of a constructive
program for many young men and
women, it is a worthwhile project in
the ipinion of Superintendent Otto
W. Haisley of the city schools and di-
rector of the local college.
"If it were not for the Freshman
College the students enrolled would
probably be accomplishing nothing in
advancing their education," said Sup-
erintendent Haisley. "In conditions
such as those that prevail today it
is very easy to liquidate ambitions and
aspirations of youth if they are per-
mitted to remain idle. The Freshman
College is one way to keep the youth
of the city occupied in a constructive

Freshman College must prove their
inability to attend any other institu-
tion. "It is surprising," said Superin-
tendent Haisley, "that with our exten-
sive educational facilities in the city,
so many have shown a definite in-
terest in the college, and if it were
not for the newly-formed school these
persons would be deprived of a chance
to engage in an intellectual activ-
Purchasing of textbooks is the only
cost to the student. The local Board
of Education has furnished the facili-
ties for the school and the national
