CHICAGO, Dec. 7 -(P)- While the
football coaches drew off by them-
selves for a post-mortem on the re-
cent season, the athletic directors
named places and dates for 1935
championship meets, and coaches of
other sports built schedules at the
opening sessions of the Western Con-
ference winter meeting today.
Chicago lost its last major track
and field event when the directors
awarded the Big Ten championship
event to the University of Michigan
for May 24 to 25. For the past nine
years the meet has been held at
Northwestern University. The last
three meets at Evanston, however,
were so poorly attended that a shift
of scenery was decided upon.
Other Meets Planned
The indoor title meet again will be
held in the University of Chicago
field house, March 9, while theswim-
ming championships will be decided
in the University of Illinois pool
March 16. The golf tournament will
be held at Northwestern again May
20 and 21. Northwestern also drew
the tennis meet for May 23, 24, and
25. The wrestling tournament will be
held March 8 and 9, either at Chi-
cago or the University of Iowa.
The quantity, and perhaps the
quality, of drinking at Big Ten foot-
ball games caused directors to plan
action against the practice. In a'
formal resolution, the directors de-
cided "to adopt very positive measures
towards reducing this evil to the low-
est possible minimum" and solicited
"the help of friends of college foot-3
ball in curbing the activties of those
who make college football games

Grid Schedules Unchanged

ball schedules were announced, but

Mercury Records
New Winter Low
The mercury hit its lowest peak for
the present winter shortly before 7
a.m. yesterday when the official ther-
mometer of the University Observa-
tory registered 9.8 degrees.
The temperature last night hov-
ered around 10 degrees, though yes-
terday afternoon it was somewhat
higher. Observatory officials stated
their belief that, while 9.8 was quite
low for Dec. 7 in previous years, no
record was broken.
A slight rise in the temperature,
together with cloudy weather and
possible snow, was predicted for today.

NEW YORK, Dec. 7. - (A) -Indus-
try lined up with the government to-
day in a program of recovery marked
by a strong stand for "co-operation."
Industrialists ended their meeting
Thursday night by recommending:
1. Extension of a modified NRA for
one year.
2. Appointment by President Roose-
velt of a commission to outline a pro-
gram for unemployment insurance,
old-age pensions and other social se-
curity measures.
3. Development of a program of co-
operation with the government by
committees from the National Asso-
ciation of Manufacturers and the
United States Chamber of Commerce.
4. Formation of a larger commit-
tee representing all business elements
in a united front for co-operation.
5. A "platform of recovery" urging
a balanced federal budget, a return
to the gold standard, return of busi-
ness to private enterprise as opposed!
to governmentalecontrol and modified
regulations for relations between la-
bor and industry.
This platform was presented earlier
in the week and was debated for sev-
eral days before it was adopted
Thursday night by the Manufactur-
ers' association and the American
Congress of Industry which met in
joint session.
The added recommendation for ex-
tension of NRA petitioned the gov-
ernment to end its control over in-
dustry except as necessary to permit
fair, free and open competition and
to conserve natural resources. The
proposed new recovery act, effective
for one year after the present act
expires next June 16, would be ad-
ministered by an independent "court"
of five with power to approve or dis-
approve codes voluntarily submitted
by industrial groups.

Britain, Japan, And U. S.
Far From Making Naval
(By Associated Press)
The grim word 'war" echoed
through the halls of the League of
Nations, seat of peace, Friday.
Elsewhere, events seemed to por-
tend toward conflict. Jugo-Slav-Hun-
garian tension increased. Italy and
Ethiopia clashed in Africa. Britain,
Japan and the United States found
themselves still far from an agree-
ment on naval limitations. Paraguay
and Bolivia fought doggedly on.
GENEVA --Eduard Benes, Czecho-
slovak foreign minister, warned the
world the Little Entente - Jugo-
Slavia, Roumania, and Czech-Slo-
vakia--would fight if its alliance is
attacked. Hungarian and Jugo-Slav
delegates hurled bitter charges at
each other as the responsibility for

Marseilles Oct. 9 was discussed.

sion of Serb regulars.
KARIBOR, Jugo-Slavia-Travei-
lers said Hungarians were arming
residents along the border, describ-
ing alleged tremendous precautions
to resist an expedition.
BELGRADE-The government de-
nied any regular army troops had
crossed the border. A spokesman said
"there has been no mobilization of
our troops at the Hungarian border."
ROME-Benito Mussolini's govern-
ment, Hungary's good neighbor,
watched the situation with grave eyes,
fearing serious developments.
LONDON - With naval negotia-
tions still at an impasse, Japan's
delegates awaited instructions from
Tokio as to whether they should make
new proposals after Norman H. Davis,
American, warned yesterday that the
end of existing treaties might mean
unlimited shipbuilding.
TOKIO - Japan stood pat. Come
what may, spokesmen said, she will
denounce the 1922 Washington naval
