All students who have further plans
for a new student government, or fur-

already been submitted, were urged1
by. Carl Hilty, '35, president of the
Undergraduate Council, to bring them
in writing to the open meeting of the
Council to be held at 8 p.m. tonight
in the Council Room at the Union.
At the same time Hilty asked that

The League Government System: Its
Perfection Is Somewhat Questioned.

State Places Netx
Bruno Near 1 r
Crime Scene I
PL.. A r A.



Ever since the beginning of the
movement for a new men's govern-
ment it has been consistently re-iter-
ated by interested groups that the
perfect system of government has at
last been discovered by the League,
and that, therefore, it might be nice
if all the men were organized under
the Union as the women are under
said League.
The Michigan Alumnus, in its issue
of Jan. 19, carries this theme with,
"They (the women) brought together
in the Michigan League all their var-
ied organizations and associated them
under the leadership of the League
administration. The machinery is
working over there on the north side
of the campus ....."
Well, is everybody happy?
Professor Henry Anderson of the
engineering school, who helped or-
ganize the League plan, says they
are. Dean Alice Lloyd says they are.
The League government officials say
they are. But no one has thought to
ask the women who work in Utopia
what they think of it.
Herewith are presented opinions of
representative women on the campus
concerning the League. Each opinion

to the constitution which they were
instructed by the Senate Committee
on Student Affairs to draw up and
submit to it.
In answer to the criticism to which
he had been subjected: for not includ-
ing the N.S.L. plan as well as the
S.C.A. plan in the questionnaire ma-
terial: for phrasing inquiries in the
questionnaires dealing only with the
first three plans; and for planning to
judge the student opinion from a poll
which did not give consideration to
the N.S.L. -nd S.C.A. plans. Hilty ex-.
plained that the questionnaires had
been sent to the printers before the
N.S.L. plan was received and just after'
the S.C.A. plan ,ad 4een,.submitted.
He further stated that the printing
of the questionnaire, apart from the
printing of the plans, had been com-
pleted before either of the last two
plans were turned in. In regard to the
poll, Hilty pointed out that question-
naires were left at Lane Hall for in-
dependents and that equal publicity
had been given each plan in The Daily 1
and coupons had been printed in The
Daily to give all those interested a
chance to express their opinions.
He explained, in answer to the call
for a referendum, that the Senate
Committee on Student Affairs had re-
quested that the Council's plan be in
its possession by Feb. 1.
War Threatens
Again Between
TOKIO, Jan. 22.- (P) -A new
danger spot appeared on the vast,
trouble-splotched map of Asia today
as Russia and Japan, two great pow-
ers equally confident of their destiny
in the East, found their expansionist
aims clashing in Sinkiang, huge I
northwestern territory nominally
under Chinese rule.
With threatened conflict in Man-
churia apparently staved off by vir-
tual agreement for Russia's sale of
the Chinese Eastern Railway, an of-
ficial Japanese spokesman said that
the Soviet's alleged penetration of
Sinkiang "menaces the peace and sta-
bility of Eastern Asia."
The maintenance of that peace and
stability, the spokesman asserted, is
Japan' s mission.
Earlier, Koki Hirtota, Japan's for-
eign minister, told the Diet that the
westward movement of Chinese Com-
munists, "coupled with the reported
sovietization of Sinkiang," oblige the
Japanese government to "watch with
concern activities of the Communist
Party and its armies in China."
Authoritative Russian quarters
termed the charges of Soviet political
penetration into Sinkiang fantastic,
but admitted that Russia's economic
influence there has increased since
the completion of the Turkestan-Si-
berian Railway which affords an out
let for Sinkiang's commerce.

Michigan's valiant, fighting and ex-
hausted hockey team defeated a
strong Point Edward sextet 3-to-2 in
a sporadically brilliant game at the
Coliseum last night. The Wolverines
accounted for two goals in the first
period, and one in the second.
The Wolverines, not yet rested from
their Friday and Saturday encounters
with the Minnesota pucksters, were
playing below form. Co-captain
Johnny Sherf, All-American left wing,
was the spark of the Michigan of-
fense as usual, even though hampered
Iby a bad cold.
The first score came four minutes
after the opening face-off, when
Walter Courtis, spare wingman,
skated in and took Sherf's rebound
shot, driving into the net for a goal.
Action for the remainder of the
first period was desultory until two
minutes before the end, when Vic
Heyliger got control of the puck in
center ice, skated through the Point
Edward defense, and shpt into the
right hand corner of the net past
goalie Claude Harris' stick. A minute
later Howard Jenken, spare Canadian
defenseman, took a pass from Burley
in front of the Michigan net, and as
Johnny Jewell, tending the Wolver-
ine goal, dropped to stop the shot,
lifted in over him.
Point Edward opened the second
period with a rush on the Michigan
goal, which netted them nothing until
a smoothly executed series of passes,
by Milt Burley and Jack Manore
passed up the Michigan defense, and
Manore drove home the puck, tying
the score.
Sherf accounted for the winning
goal of the game. As Nat Geary, sub-
goalie for the Sarnia sextet, cleared
the puck, Heyliger passed it out to
Sherf, alone in front of the net save
for one defenseman. A hard straight
shot blazed past the latter, into the
middle of the net.
The final period was featured by
Sherf's repeated solo dashes down
the ice, but the spectacular work of
Geary and the tightening of the Point
Edward defense prevented further
Point Edward was fortunate in hav-
ing a spare forward line sn a par with
the regulars. The fast skating, and
clever stick handling of Manore was
largely responsible for breaking up
Michigan plays and relieving Harris
of all but six saves in the second per-
iod. Harris is credited with 34 saves
for the evening, while Jewell was re-
sponsible for 21.

The cover is especially pertinent,
