Less Than Expected
Latest enrollment figures set the
number of students who have en-
tered the University this year at
8,713, an increase of 851, or 10.8
per cent over the 7,862 registered
in the same period last year.
At the end of last week, the gain
over the school year 1933-34 was
-16.5 per cent, but the drop report-
ed yesterday is probably due, in
the opinion of Dr. Frank E. Rob-
bins, assistant to the president, to
the large number of students who
came early to avoid payment of
extra fees for tardy registration,
and those who returned in ad-
vance to secure FERA jobs.
The literary college shows a net
increase of 563 students over last
year. The engineering college
registers a gain of 175.

NEW YORK, Sept. 29.- (3)- A
special jury panel to try Bruno Rich-
ard Hauptmann, indicted on the
charge of extortion as the receiver
of the $50,000 Lindbergh ransom pay-
ment, will be asked in Bronx County
court next Wednesday, District At-
torney Samuel J. Foley announced
The district attorney said that the
motion will be made to get the trial
under way speedily, but he declined to
state the trial date.
"Maybe about a week from next
Wednesday, we might go to trial,"
Previously it had been pointed out
that the trial date would depend on
the outcome of conferences between
the prosecutor and defense counsel.

The hope of Chicago police that
they had nabbed the man who re-
ceived the ransom seemed to fade to
day as Chief of Detectives John L.
Sullivan, of Chicago, announced that
he could find nothing tangible to link
Joseph Bowman' with the crime.
Bowman, alias James O'Dea, an ex-
convict, and his wife were seized last
night, Bowman was questioned dur-
ing the early morning by Melvin H.
Purvis, chief of the Chica go unit of
the bureau of investigation.
Police said that the suspect bore a
"striking resemblance" to the "John"
glimpsed by Dr. J. F. (Jafsie) Condon
during the payment of ransom.
Fisch's Brother Quizzed
"We have nothing to link this man
to the Lindbergh kidnaping except an
anonymous tip received last night,"
the detective chief admitted.
Detective Arthur Johnson, of the
New York police, arrived in Leipziz,
Germany, today and questioned Pin-
kus Fisch, brother of the late Isa-
dor Fisch. Hauptmann, in explaining
to police his possession of $14,500 of
Lindbergh ransom money, said that it
had been entrusted to him by Isidor

Rain today drove police searching
for additional clews at Hauptmann's

The film was produced under the
scientific supervision of Dr. James H.
Breasted, famous archeologist and
historian, with the facilities of thej
Oriental Institute of the University of
Chicago, the largest archeological or-
ganization in the world. Direction
and narration of the film is by his
son, Charles Breasted, executive sec-
retary of the Institute.
The campus presentation of this
picture was made -possible through
the work of Prof. H. A. Kenyon, Uni-
versity Director of the Lydia Mendel-
The film, which required more than
three years to complete, grew directly
out of the researches and explora-
tions of the Oriental Institute - the
first and only laboratory for the study
of what Dr. Breasted describes in
the film as "the most remarkable pro-
cess known to us in the universe: the
rise of man from savagery to civiliza-
tion." The picture carries the observer
by airplane through the lands where
civilization first arose - Egypt, Pales-
tine, Syria, Anatolia, Iraq, and Per-
sia - and other places to which the
Institute has dispatched altogether
fourteen expeditions. Eight of these
are observed while actually engaged
in the scientific recovery of the lost
chapters of human history.
Special planes were chartered and
professional cameramen were em-
ployed to produce a story which has
never before been told on the screen.
Two separate trips were made from
Chicago to the Near East to produce
the film. More than 32,000 feet of
negative were exposed, and much of
the film was made from the air in
more than 9.000 miles of flying.
Although -the exact date for the
presentation has not yet been an-
nounced, it has been announced that
it will appear about the week of Oc-
tober 14th, and it has been empha-
sized that the picture is of such a
nature that it will be of particular
interest to all students of history,
archeology, fine arts, anthropology.

Giant Liner To
Delay In Delivery Of Oil

Of Air Cruiser
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Sept. 29 -
W) - Her huge duraluminum frame
completed, the glittering skeleton of
Germany's super giant of the air idly
hangs inside the Zeppelin hangar
here awaiting installation of her four
powerful crude-oil motors.
Meanwhile, plans are being com-,
pleted for an exploration tour with
the "LZ 129" over the "white spots"
on the map of Brazil.
Handicapped by delay in delivery of
the crude-oil engines, the satisfac-
tory solution of the motor problem
keeping the engineers of three lead-
ing German motor factories busy on
the test stands, the finishing touches
to the monster air cruiser cannot be
expected until February, 1935.
Almost twice as large as the storm-
tried veteran "Graf Zeppelin," the
new sister ship, having a capacity of
6,600,000 cubic feet, measuring 812
feet in length and 132 feet in height
over all, will likely be named for the
late soldier-president, Paul von Hind-
Eckener to Conduct First Tour
"Because of climatic conditions the
dirigible will start on the scientific
flight at the latest in August, 1935,"
said Dr. Hugo Eckener, adding "pro-
vided, however, that the hangar at
Rio de Janeiro is ready by that time.
Otherwise, the expeditin must be
postponed until the early summer of
1936." The skilled pilot will com-
mand the ship during this spectacular
Appliances which permit the diri-
gible to be "anchored" in the air and
also enable passengers to alight and

The Brazilian Government has
agreed to the plan of the expedition
which will be headed by the German
explorer, Paul Vageler, professor at
the Agricultural Institute at Berlin-

financial and scientific arrangements
for the flight.

"Chiselers" probably exist among
those students having FERA jobs,
Prof. Lewis Gram, chairman of the
FERA committee of the University,
There is a pressing need to weed
out these students to give jobs to men
and women on the campus who are
really in need of employment and who
are now on the waiting list, said Pro-
fessor Gram. A check-up on those
who have falsified their financial
position on the application blanks to
get jobs is practically impossible from
the administration offices of the
FERA, he claimed. The only thing
that will help, he continued, is the
active participation of the student
body in reporting cases of "chiselers"
of which they have knowledge.
Scattered reports of persons having
jobs and who do not need them come
into his office, he declared, but no
names have been divulged and no
action could accordingly be taken. If
the students on the campus under-
stood the dire need of scores of per-
sons who were unable to get into the
FERA quota of jobs they would be less
reticent to divulge instances of "chis-
eling," he said.
The answers that were filed in the
application blanks as to financial con-
dition by students desiring jobs were
accepted as true by the committee be-
cause of the practical impossibility of
tracing them as to their honesty or
falsity. On the other hand, he said,.
if cases were reportd to him by other
students who had knowledge of a
person getting a job on false state-
ments, he could take action to replace
him with a student who had filed a
Professor Gram also wished to 'an-
nounced that 152 students who have

ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Sept. 29-

and Mrs. Roosevelt because of an al-
leged hilarious "beer party" in the
White House last Christmas was re-
jected today by the New Jersey con-

Church after lengthy debate.
The strong censure of the Chief
