Pitches Cards To Victory

DETROIT, Oct. 3-Miciey Coch-
rane's vaunted "Battalion of Death"
infield cracked wide open during the
first three innings of today's World
Series opener and before the carnage
could be stopped three Cardinal runs
scored and Jerome (Dizzy) Dean was
well on his way to his thirty-first vic-
tory of the year and his third in six
days. The final score was 8 to 3.
While the Tigers were playing like
sandlotters the Cards gave an exhibi-
tion of- championship ball, making
only two errors to the five the Bengal
infield booted. They pounded three
Tiger pitchers for 13 "hits, including
a home run and two doubles.
Dean was the laurel-grabber of the
afternoon but Joe Medwick, Card left
,ielder and clean-up batter, got him-
self a piece of the glory when he col-
lected four hits, one of them a home
run into the newly-erected left field

Official paid attendance was 42,505,
approximately 3,500 short of capacity.
Receipts totalled $139,643, which was

teams, $47,4.split among the -two
contending clubs and the two major
leagues, and $26,946.45 to the base-
ball advisory council.
Apparently Dizzy Dean will try to
do the same thing to Detroit that
Babe Adams did to the Bengals in
the 1909 Series. Adams, after only a
year or so in the majors, won three
games and the Pitt Pirates won the
title. Dean went in yesterday to pitch
his first series game against an ex-
perienced veteran, General Alvin
Crowder, and kicked over the dope
bucket with a vengeance.
He was in trouble only once in the
nine innings. In the third inning af-
ter two were out Dean walked, White
and Cochrane singled. Gehringer
then singled, scoring White, and took
second on Orsatti's fumble in center
field. With runners on second and
third Dean had to face the hard-hit-
ting Greenberg. Hank swung wildly
at three of Dizzy's best and the prom-
ising Tiger rally was ended.
Greenberg Scores
The second Tiger run came in the
sixth. Gehringer led off with a
grounder to Collins who threw to
Dean covering first for the first out.
Greenberg poked a single into center
and continued to second when Or-
satti fumbled the ball for his second
error of the game. Goslin sent a roll-
er between Martin and Durocher that
went into left for a single, Greenberg
scoring. Rogell was out at first and
Owen fanned to end, the inning.

Largest State
Band To Play
Here Saturday





Since 1928
EAST LANSING, Oct. 4. - (Spe-
cial) - With 'a larger membership
than at any time in its history, the
Michigan State College Military Band
will leave Saturday morning for Ann
Arbor to participate in the Michigan-
Michigan State football game. The
State band will have more than 90
members this year, having gained
nearly a score of new men since the
1933 football season, according to
Prof. Leonard Falcone, director.
Drum-Major Donald A. Strouse, '35,1
and a reception committee from the
Varsity Band made plans Wednes-
day night to meet the Michigan State
College band when it arrives in Ann
Arbor Saturday. The State band will
arrive in downtown Ann Arbor by
bus early Saturday and will march,
with an escort of Michigan bandsmen,
to its temporary headquarters at Mor-
ris Hall.
Informed that 150 members of the
huge University of Illinois Bands
would come to Ann Arbor Oct. 27,
making their first trip here since
1928, Strouse and Bernard B. Hirsch,
acting conductor of the Michigan
band, Wednesday night gave assur-
ance that "we'll be ready forany-
thing musical Illinois can bring toI
Ann Arbor."

eral years he taught fire-prevention
and control, and for the past few
years he has done considerable travel-
ing throughout the state in connec-
tion with his work in forest extension.


Case No. II
NOTE: The Daily, in order to show
the necessity of weeding chiselers

them with students actually in
need of jobs, is running a series of
casehistories of needy students.

series but definite proof of each case
is available. - The Editors.

He returned to school this year ex-
pecting to get his job back, but was
placed on the waiting list.
He works for his board, getting
three meals a day. He owes two
weeks' rent to his landlady, and
will owe her more unless he gets a
job. He can't buy any books.

money, but had to lend it to his

New Deal Is
Criticized By
Samuel Wyer
Roosevelt Is Accused Of
'Moving Tammany Hall
To Washington'
Hitting President Roosevelt and the
New Dealers for having "moved Tam-
many Hall to Washington," having
thrown the American people into ac-
tual bankruptcy, and for having en-
listed the aid of Socialistic doctrines
to revive a dying Capitalism, Samuel
S. Wyer, former Federal technical
adviser and crusading consulting en-
gineer from Columbus, Ohio, last
night addressed an audience of stu-
dents and faculty men in the Natur-
al Science Auditorium on the subject,
"Contributions To a Way Out of the
Charging that if $11 were to be
tccumulated every minute since the
birth of Christ, we would not yet have
enough to pay for the tremendous-
cost of the New Deal, Wyer swept
aside Anarchism, Communism, So-
cialism, and present-day Capitalism
as not feasible in our times, and call-
ed for a "revolt of youth, sane and
sensible," to rebuild a new social
structure, based on constitutional
control of production, capital invest-
ment, and natural resources.
Cultural Courses Best
Advising college students to avoid
technical courses and to study gen-
eral cultural courses that they may
better adapt themselves to a chang-
ing social order, Wyer charged that
there are three important issues be-
fore the world today: an intelligent
attitude toward religion; a need for
the elimination of War; and the re-'
covery from the depression. The first
one, he says, would solve the last two,
if adopted.
"Seventy-two cents of every tax
dollar goes for war activities," said
Mr. Wyer. "Our war debts are as
dead as the boys in Flanders. We
ought to cancel them, but only on the
basis of a downward revision of arm-
aments. It is time we had the social
intelligence to realize that wealth is
less sacred than the lives of our
youths sacrified on battlefields."
"The world is suffering from acute
indigestion of rugged individualism
without social responsibility; we must
realize that mass production demands
mass buying power."
Muscle Shoals Is Delusion j

"Muscle Shoals is the biggest de-
lusion that has hit America in the
[last century; fooled by engineers and
statesmen, and that premier fiction
sheet, the Congressional Record, we
have been fooled into throwing away
a fortune."
Asked by Dr. Edward W. Blakeman,
Counsellor in Religious Education,
from the audience, what he thought
of the NRA, Mr. Wyer replied, "The
NRA is sound in idea, but crude in
application. If Johnson had used
diplomacy instead of rough-house
methods, he would have been success-
ful. Bernard Baruch could have done
Hoover's recent magazine articles
are "unbalanced and misleading"
thinks Mr. Wyer, and Upton Sinclair's
EPIC plan is "unfeasible."
"Unless capitalists are willing to
divide part of their profits with the
workers, Capitalism is doomed within
the next two years; God only knows
what will follow."

Students on the FERA waiting list

asserted Prof. Lewis Gram yesterday.
Professor Gram thinks it unlikely
that there is a very high percentage
of chiselers in the FERA, but amend-
ed that statement, declaring that he
had no proof to that effect. One can-
not make a statement regarding chis-
elers with any degree of certainty un-
til more facts are available, he said.
Gram Addresses Alpha Nu
At a meeting of Alpha Nu speech
society last night, Professor Gram
said that the FERA is being operated
this year in much more conformity
with the spirit of the grant than was
the case last year. He was referring
to the change in the application blank
that the student must sign which this
year simply requires a statement of
financial condition.
Miss Elizabeth Smith, of the FERA
registration office, stated that 20 stu-
dents have been taken from the wait-
ing list this week and have been
placed among those who will be given
positions as soon as they can be as-
signed to suitable projects. She re-

held yesterday at the Union, Allen
Knuusi, '35E, John C. Healey, '35. Wil-
liam G. Ferris, '35, and Allan D. Mc-
Combs, '35, were chosen as the four
students who, with Carl Hilty, '35,
president of the Council, will comprise
the committee.
The Judicial Committee handles
student disciplinary cases, such as
ticket scalping and disorderly con-
duct. The more serious cases go to
the faculty judicial committee.
Knuusi, a member of Phi Sigma
Kappa fraternity, was a member of
The Daily business staff for two years
and of Triangles, junior honorary so-
ciety of the engineering college. Hea-
ley is a member of Alpha Delta Phi
fraternity and is city editor of The

McCombs Chosen
McCombs is at present the presi-
dent of the Union and is also a mem-
ber of Michigamua. He is affiliated
with Lampda Chi Alpha fraternity.
It will be impossible to set dates
for the class election as yet, according
to an announcement issued by the
Council yesterday. The delay is due
to the fact that the date of publica-
tion of the Student Directory is not
known at present. The executive com-
mittee will act later and make known
the date, it was reported. Elections
will be. supervised by Council mem-
bers as usual.
The week-end of October 27 was
picked for the annual home-coming
celebration, the Council announced.
Plans are already underway for the
week-end and it is believed that a
house-decorating contest will be held
as usual. Fall games, which will be
handled by the Union staff, will be
held Saturday morning, October 27.
The games, which will be held on
south Ferry Field as usual, will con-
sist of the usual three events, cane
spree, tilting, and flag rush. In the
first one, six individual contests are
held in which each man tries to wrest
an axe handle from his opponent.
Games Include Tilting
In the tilting, ┬░picked teams are
mounted on wooden horses and given
gunny sacks full of straw. The object
of the game is to knock one's oppo-
nent from his horse. In the flag rush,
freshmen are stationed around three
greased poles. Sophomores may rush
any or all of them in their attempts
to get the flags.
# In the election for the office of
secretary-treasurer of the Council,
Mary Sabin, '35, a member of Col-
legiate Sorosis and president of Mor-
tarboard, women's senior honorary
society; received a unanimous vote.
The matter of keeping the reading
and periodical rooms of the library
open Sundays was also discussed by
the Council, but no action was taken
as it was learned that the library
had no money for that purpose. It was
reported that library officials had de-
clared, however, that should sufficient
interest be aroused, it might be pos-
sible to use the Angell Hall library
as a study hall on Sundays.
