Puck Team Loses
In Overtime,


Early Lead Is Lost In Final
Period; Captain Sherf
Scores Twice
With John Gee using his six feet
eight inches of height to every advan-
tage and displaying a floor game
which supported Coach Franklin
Cappon's experiments with the giant
sophomore center, Michigan's Var-
sity basketball team last night de-
feated Michigan State, 31 to 25, in
Yost Field House.
Gee, with six field goals and a foul
goal, not only led the Wolverines in
scoring, but his work at the pivot
position served to direct the Michigan
The entire Michigan team, how-
ever, showed a distinct improvement
over last week's meeting with Mich-
igan State Normal, setting a defense
which held the Spartans to three
field goals in the first half, of which
only one was within the foul circle.
The Spartans, with their delayed
offense, were unable to penetrate the
Wolverine defense to any extent in
the first half, getting but six shots
from within the foul circle, and Bob
Herrick's set shot from the side was
the only close shot of the period to
score for the State team.
In the second period, however, the
Spartans began to edge under the
basket to make three goals.
On defense Joslin, whose lapses in
that department almost proved cost-
ly to the Wolverines against M.S.N.C.,
was shifted to a guard by Coach Cap-
pon, where he was assigned to Frizzo,
and although the Spartan forward
was able to connect for three field
goals all three were on blocking plays
well exected by the Spartan offense.
State took the lead in the open-
ig miinute when Mike Rouse scored
a foul goal after being tripped by
Jablonski as he cut for the basket,
but the Wolverines came- back imme-
diately to take a lead which was
never again questioned.
Gee broke into the scoring midway
in the first period as he made a tip-
in follow of Jablonski's long shot, and
later in the period made the first of

Strong Canadian Team
Overcomes Hockey Six
Michigan's hockey sextet lost to the
Chatham Maroons, 3 to 2, in an over-
time game last night at the Coliseum.
Sheer overwhelming manpower gave
the Michigan-Ontario League leaders
the decision. Coach Eddie Lowrey's
squad of eight men, led by the bril-
liant John Sherf, ran up a two-goal
margin only to see it vanish before a
desperate last period Chatham rally
with Vic Heyliger in the penalty box,
and lost the chance to hand the On-
tario sextet its first defeat in 12
games when the Maroons tallied in
the overtime period.
Chatham was carrying the fight to
the Wolverines from the outset, but
neither team could break through for
a score until late in the first period.
Then, with a dog-fight around the
Chatham goal, a Maroon defense man
tried to pass from behind his net to
the right wing, but Sherf intercepted
the puck and slipped it past Goalie
Peardon from five yards out.
Michigan showed a fine defense as
the Chatham drives became more nu-
merous in the second period. With
five minutes gone Red MacCollum was
banished to the penalty box and five
Maroons crossed Michigan's red line
to bombard co-Captain John Jewell
from close in but failed to score.
Michigan had the game won, it ap-
peared, when the hands of the elec-
tric clock indicated only eight min-1
utes to play, but at that moment,
Heyliger was penalized for tripping
Burry. Five Maroons swooped into
Michigan territory. At 12:41 Daw-
son picked up a loose puck in front
of Jewell and barely pushed it into
the net.

Thirty-four seconds later Sadlier
drove a hard shot into the right hand
corner. Not satisfied to go into over-
time, the Maroons continued their
forcing game, giving Sherf two op-

Gertrude Stein, radical and icono-
clastic writer, shed a few side-lights
on her opinions and thought during
an interview yesterday, at the con-
clusion of her Ann Arbor visit.
Discussing the influence of auto-
matic writing on her work, Miss Stein
declared that the idea of a connection
between the two was ridiculous.
Studying at John Hopkins University
under William James, eminent psy-
chologist, she carried on a number
of experiments with automatic writ-
This type of psychological experi-
ment consists in the subject's concen-
trating on some matter being read
or recited, at the same time allow-
ing his pencil to record whatever
comes into his head, the result on
paper supposedly being a transla-
tion of subconscious thought.
Miss Stein's experiments indicated
to her that there was no such thing
as automatic writing among normal
people.iHersconscious self was too
much alive, she found, to allow any
reaction to subconscious tests.
No living writer has influenced her,
Miss Stein says. "I had to proceed
alone. The most immediate influence
on my work was Flaubert, and after
him, Trollope and Swift." She has
translated some of Flaubert's works
from the French.
(Continued on Page 8)

"A terrible bore." Succinctly, brief-
ly, Prof. O. J. Campbell of the Eng-
lish department characterized Ger-
trude Stein's lecture here Friday. "She
had about one, or perhaps two, ideas,"
said Professor Campbell, "which were
familiar to everyone in the audience.
She then proceeded to give an ex-
position of them by a process which
she informed us was not repetition
but insistence. Her efforts to illus-
trate these ideas seemed to me abor-
"The whole explanation of her
work," he concluded, "lies in the fact
that early she found she could do
automatic writing, and she has never
ceased doing it. One day she found
she could sell it and called it poetry."
Prof. Erich Walter, also of the Eng-
lish department, believes it was "all
very intelligible."
The psychologist's viewpoint was
offered by Dr. Theophile Raphael,
who declared the lecture was "very,
very interesting, and very stimulating.
She has an amazingly keen mind,"
said Dr. Raphael.
Prof. Roy W. Cowden, chairman
of the Hopwood committee which
brought Miss Stein to Ann Arbor,
called the lecture "intensely inter-
esting." Pointing out where the diffi-
culty in comprehension of her work
lies, Professor Cowden said, "It is a

WASHINGTON, Dec. 15.- (P) -
Washington was termed the country's
"worst" bootlegging "spot" tonight by
Ammon McClellan, executive director
of the League of Distilled Spirits Rec-
Before the Federation of Citizens
Associations, McClellan said "the
'man in the green hat'- yes, and men
in gray, round and black and even
derbies are peddling liquor down the
corridors of the Senate and House
office buildings and even in the Cap-
itol building proper."
The "man in the green hat" was
a bootlegger who operated around the
Capitol during prohibition days. The
eventual police disclosure of his mys-
terious activities caught wide pop-
ular fancy.

Pressure To

Bear On

WASHINGTON, Dec. 15.- (P) -
The Administration was shown today
to be using the prestige demonstrated
at the November election in an un-
precedented effort to influence the
states to enact laws reinforcing sev-
eral phases of the New Deal.
With 42 legislatures meeting next
month, President Roosevelt himself
and prominent members of his offi-
cial advisory family have been urging
state legislation to facilitate NRA
code enforcement, provide for unem-
ployment insurance, maximum hours
and minimum wages, and to make
the PWA and housing programs more
Mr. Roosevelt interested himself di-
rectly and emphatically only yester-
day with the housing program. He
wrote letters to the governors of vir-'
tually all the states asking laws that
would permit larger loans for home,
construction and repair, to be insured
by Federal money.
His action was taken upon the
suggestion of James A. Moffett, hous-
ing administrator, who explained that,
in numerous states loans on mort-
gages are limited to 50 per cent of
value. His own belief was that with
Federal insurance behind such loans
a maximum of 80 per cent would not
be too much.
'Co-op' Eating Place ToI
Refund Members' Dues
The Michigan Wolverine, coopera-
tive eating house formerly known as
the "Co-op," will fulfill its obliga-
tion to last year's members by re-
funding to them more than $100 in
membership dues, George J. Varga,1
'36, treasurer of the organization, said
last night.
Reaffirming the non-political as-
pect of the Wolverine, Edward A.
Stone, '36, general manager, stated
that a new policy enables students
to eat for a week at the club as mem-
bers without fulfilling membership
Taggart Will Speak

Prof. Herbert F. Taggart of the

Professor Taggart, head of the cost
accounting department of the NRA,

series of talks presented on different
economic phases to be delivered by
various University professors. As spe-

Youth Congress Membership

The three-day meeting of the Mich-

on "Youth and Breakdown of the So-
cial Order," at 9:30 a.m. in Hill Au-
Dr. Ward, who also holds positions
as secretary of the Methodist League

The congress, meeting in the First
Methodist Church last night, listened
to the contradictory policies advo-
cated by representatives of four ma-
jor parties. Mayor Robert Campbell
of Ann Arbor spoke for the Repub-
licans; the Rev. F. Larson, former
candidate for governor, for the So-
cialists, William F. Dorn, assistant at-
torney-general, for the Democrats,
and William Weinstein, secretary of
the Michigan Communist Party, for
the Communists.
Mayor Campbell Criticized
The statements of the different
speakers .were contradictory and re-
sulted in refuting statements from
succeeding speakers, The solution of
the present depression was especially
a subject for discussion, and when
Mayor Campbell declared that "the
avior of the people will be the people
,hemselves," and that to get out
.f present difficulties you must pull
yourself out by your own boot-straps,"
he became the target of the more
radical speakers present.
Mr. Larson attacked the mayor's
-tatement in his address; He said,
"the previous speaker said that no
arty can do anything to better con-
litions, but we, the people, have to
-ull ourselves up by our own boot-
straps. I have never seen this done."
Five different meetings were held
iy the congress yesterday afternoon
n overflowing auditoriums all over
;he campus.
Tulane Student Leads Discussion
A spirit of resentful defiance against
)resent conditions of youth in rural
ind urban sections of Michigan dom-
.nated the discussions and resolu-
tions of the meeting of the group
:onsidering the, subject, "Unemploy-.
mentn and Social Insurance."
This group met in the Union under
the leadership of Richard Babb Whit-
ten of Tulane University, who is na-
tional chairman of the Student League
of Industrial Democracy.
Resolutions passed at the meeting
included endorsement of the Lundeen
Bill for unemployment insurance,
support of measures for relief of
youth and general unemployment,
condemnation of the Civilian Conser-
vation Corps, and backing for all un-
amployed in their "daily fight for an
mproved standard of living."
In a flurry of resolutions, some 100
,o 125 delegates of the education sec-
ion of the Youth Congress advo-
:ated drastic changes in education.
Pass Seven Resolutions
Among the seven resolutions passed,.
was one denouncing the sales tax as
a means of subsidizing schools, and
suggesting that the source of income
for the schools be a progressive state
income tax affecting incomes of $5,-
000 a year; a "stiff" inheritance tax
levied by the state; a heavy tax on
large gifts; and, most radical, a heavy
tax on non-taxable bonds, suggested
by Merlin Bishop of the Teachers
Federation in East Dearborn.
Under the leadership of Robert Na-
gel, delegate from the F.E.R.A. Col-
lege in Detroit, the meeting resolved
to stand back of all students and
teachers ejected from schools and
universities for the expression of lib-
eral opinions. The first resolution

Shoplifting Listed By Managers
Of Stores As Student 'Activity'

Shoplifting is an all too popular
extra-curricular activity of the Uni-
versity student, according to the State
Street store managers. So prevalent is
this abuse that definite protective
measures have been taken by the
book and drug stores while the cloth-
ing stores, gift shops and beauty
salons banish temptations by keeping
their easily removable stock in cases
and drawers.
Nor is this practice something new
and unpredictable. Slaters, the Col-
lege Book Shop, and Wahrs prepare
for the increased amount of shop-
lifting during the rush season at the
beginning of each semester by posting

Perfume disappears in spite of the

from the counters at Calkins and
