Stars As Tigers Even
World Series
DETROIT, Oct. 4 - Forty-five
thousand fans went mad here this
afternoon when Gerald Walker rap-
ped a clean single into center field
and scored Pete Fox from second,
making the score St. Louis 2, Detroit
2 in the last half of the ninth inning.
It was the turning point as far as
the Tigers were concerned. They
knew that the Cards couldn't solve
Schoolboy Rowe's pitching and had
only.to wait for the Tigers to produce
the winning tally.
Goslin's Hit Ends It
The final break came in the twelfth
when relief-pitcher Bill Walker is-
sued passes to Gehringer and Green-
'berg, and Goose Goslin, next up,
banged a single into left, Gehringer
.romping across the plate a step ahead
of the crowd that foamed out of the
stands to embrace the rampant Tig-
Rowe showedthat all the talk about
his being a "hot weather pitcher" is
so much twaddle when he allowed a
total of seven hits, issued no bases on
balls, and struck out seven. The El
Dorado Merriwell warmed up slowly,;
allowing six hits in the first three in-
nings. After that he retired the next
22 batters in order before Martin got
the Cards' last hit in the eleventh, a
double which Rowe speedily offset by
fanning Rothrock and making Mana-
ger Frisch ground to Gehringer.-
Wild Bill Hallahan vindicated;
Frisch's choice by pitching stellar
ball for eight and one-third innings,
allowing only six hits and two runs.
Fox Is Batting Star
Goslin and Walker supplied the
fans the biggest thrills with their
timely hits, but Fox's double and'
single were the blows that made vic-
tory possible. In the fourth, Rogell
got two bases when his short fly in
center field got away from Orsatti'
and Fox drove him home for the
Tiger's first run with a resounding
double down the third base line.
Coming to bat first in the ninth in-
ning Fox brought the roaring thous-
ands to their feet demanding a run
when he singled to right. He advanc-
ed to second on Rowe's sacrifice bunt
and scampered home on Walker's
blow. N'obody cared, much when
Walker was trapped off first and run
down a minute later. The Tigers
were going to win anyway.
Rowe did not start impressively.
Frisch got a hit in the first but died
there when Rowe fanned the mighty
In the second, Delancey, with one
out, bounded a single off Charley
Gehringer's shins. Orsatti drove past
Goslin in left and, when the Goose
had trouble in taking the ball on the%
rebound from the left-field pavilion,;
wheeled around to third, Delancey
Martin opened the third with a
single over second.. He sprinted to
second on Rothrock's sacrifice bunt,
remained there while Frisch flied to
White and dashed home on Med-,
wick's only hit of the day, a single
to left.
Medwick went to second on Goslin's,
long throw to the plate trying to get
Martin and tried to score himself
when Collins hit another single into,
left, but the Goose took Collins' drive,
in short right field and, whipped the;
ball on a line to Cochrane who had
time to squat over the plate and easily

tag Medwick. The Bengal manager;
way hurt on the play but continued
in the game.
Credit for the outstanding play of
the game and, of the series thus far
goes to Billy Rogell for his diving
one-handed catch of Delancey's very
low line drive to open the seventh
Detroit's "Battalion of Death" was
back in form, handling infield
chances with the easy efficiency which
characterized their play during the

Blakeman To
Begin Round
Table Series
Discussion Group Is To'
Resume Meetings With
Religious Problem
The Freshman Round Table has
been completely revised and the first
meeting will be held at 4 p.m. Sun-
day, in Lane Hall, Russell F. Ander-
son, president of the S.C.A. announced
The leader of the first forum will
be Dr. E. W. Blakeman, religious
counsellor to students, and he will
lead a discussion that will revolve
about the topic of the application
of religion to modern economic and
sociological problems.
Dr. Blakeman, Phi Beta Kappa, and
a member of Tau Beta Pi, national
forensic society, is one of the most.
outstanding men in his field. He was
official pastor at the University of
Wisconsin for 15 years and is the
author of many articles concerning
modern religious education.
Anderson further stated that the
discussions as outlined "will be con-
ducted in the phraseology of the stu-
dent, and not with the austerity of a
religious cloak."
The S.C.A. cabinet member in
charge is William G. Barndt, '37, and
he will be assisted by upperclassmen
and graduate students.
Increases In Food
Prices Looked For
As rouyhtResult~
WASHINGTON, Oct. 4. - (')-- A
shift in the customary national diet
during the late winter and next
spring, because of the drought, was
predicted today from within the AAA.
The bureau of agricultural eco-
nomics, in a lengthy survey of crop
'and live-stock destruction, concluded
also that prices would rise but that,
with an adjustment between surplus
and deficient areas, there would be
no danger of food shortage.
"The full effects of the drought on
retail food prices will not be felt until
next spring, when supplies of meat,
dairy products, and poultry products
will be reduced," the bureau said.
Drought and high temperatures
during the summer were reported to
have so reduced production in cen-
tral and Rocky Mountain states, that,
despite "bountiful production" in
eastern and far western states, "con-
sumers will have to make certain
shifts in their usual diet because of
the scarcity of some foods and the
abundance of others."
The bureau said a higher level of
food prices "in general" may be ex-
pected in addition to the 7.1 per cent
general increase during the past three
months, but at a slower rate.
Price increases listed for the three
months' period were: meats, 13.6 per
cent; dairy products, 4.3 per cent;
cereal products, 3.5 per cent, and
canned fruits and vegetables, 1.5 per
cent. Part of the increases, the bureau
said, can be attributed to normal sea-
sonal trends.

No Contact Allowed
Until Monday Noon
'Dirty Rushing' Reports
Discounted By President
Of Fraternity Council
Rushing in all fraternities ended
last night as brothers bid rushees
goodby and a "see you Monday."
The silence period began at 8:30
p.m. last night and will continue
through noon Monday. During this
time there can be no contact between
a fraternity and a rushee. Contact
has been defined by the Interfrater-
nity Council as any communication
with an eligible man, whether per-
sonal, in writing, or by telephone.
Especial attention has been called to
the fact that alumni are considered
"members" and as such are prohibited
from contacting rushees.
Must Turn In Receipts
Rushees intending to pledge must
turn inthe receipt given them when
they registered, at the Interfraternity
Council offices, by 12:30 p.m. today,
to the office of the dean of students,
Room 2, University Hall. In exchange
for their receipt they will be given a
preference list containing the names,
of all general fraternities.
They shall check on this list in1
order of preference the names of
fraternities from which they will be,
willing to accept a bid. These lists,
must be turned back to the dean's of-
fice by 5 p.m.. today. Lists turned in
later will be considered void.
The dean's office will honor these1
bids and acceptances according to the
respective order of preference and will
notify both parties of the agreements1
made. Rushees will report at 6 p.m.
Monday at the respective houses to be
To Be Considered Eligible 4
Any rushee who does not turn in a
preference list shall be considered in-
eligible to pledge any fraternity until
the beginning of the second semester1
and no rushee turning in a preference
list shall be eligible during the first
semester to pledge any fraternity not
on his list.
Under the new Interfraternity
Council ruling, every new man who
wishes to pledge must pay a 50 cent
registration fee to the Interfraternity
Council. Students who were on the
campus last semester are classified as
old students and do not come under
the ruling. The offices of the Council,
Room 306 in the Union, will be open
from 8 to 5 p.m. today for late regis-
Promises Not Binding
Philip A. Singleton, '35E, president
of the Interfraternity Council, said
yesterday that he wished to impress
upon rushees' minds that no promises
they have made during the rushing
period should be considered binding.
It is believed that many more fresh-
men are taking houses this year,
based on the fact that over 560 men
registered at the Interfraternity
Council offices. This figure is 44
higher than the number of men
pledged last year. Singleton believes
that there will be a rush of late regis-
trations tomorrow which will raise
the figure measurably.
Despite numerous rumors on the
campus that there had been evidence
of "dirty rushing," Singleton said
that he was pleased with the period'
and that he believed it to be relatively
clean. "Houses that have been violat-
ing the rules will only hurt them-
selves," he declared.

Case No. III
NOTE: The Daily, in order to show
the necessity of weeding chiselers
out of the FERA and replacing them
with students actually in need of
jobs, is running a series of case
histories of needy students. Names

definite proof of each case is avail-
able.- The Editors.
He cooks in his room, paying 50
cents a week for the privilege. His
food is the cheapest. Beans, canned
soup and peanut butter sandwiches
are the main items in his diet. His
single luxury is fresh butter.
He is a junior on the campus,
having transferred from an eastern
teachers' college this year. His tui-
tion is paid. He cannot pay his
room rent. His room-mate pays for
most of the food.
He came here expecting to get an
FERA job and a job for his board.
He has neither. His father has been
hit by the depression and cannot
help him out. He has $19 in his
pocket which must last until June.
He will have to leave school if he
doesn't get aid from the FERA.

the formation and growth of the
Washtenaw unemployment council,
the temporary assistance of the CWA,

Truce In Wage Dispute,
DETROIT, Oct. 4-(P) -A truce
had been reached today in the two

land areas.
The strike, called Tuesday after-
noon, was suspended late Wednesday
night after a meeting of Local 299, of

Committee To Investigate
All Applicants Who Join
Drive To Weed Out
'Chiselers' Backed
Request Student Support
In Eliminating Unworthy
Job Holders
Although FERA applicants who
pledge fraternities will not necessar-
ily be eliminated from consideration
for jobs, each case of pledging re-
ported will be investigated, accord-
ing to Prof. Lewis Gram, chairman
of the FERA committee.,
"We do not expect FERA workers
to use the money for joining fraterni-
ties, of course, when there are stu-
dents who are unable to remain in the
University because we can't help
them," said Prof. Gram. "However,
it is possible that students may join
fraternities with the intention of
working in them, in which case the
applicant will not be excluded from
his place on the eligibility, list."
Dean Joseph A. Bursley, in charge
of placement of workers, was not pre-
pared to say last night what effect
joining a fraternity would have on
FERA applicants.
Effect of Smaller Appropriations
Inasmuch as this year's appropria-
tion is smaller than that of last year,
and in view of the increased number.
of applicants this year, it has been
found necessary by the committee to
carefully examine the record of each
applicant, so that students to whom
the work is not absolutely essential
may not be permitted to 'chisel' needy
students out of their only chance to
remain in college.
Bursley Comments on Campaign
The present campaign to weed chis-
elers out of the FERA has my com-
plete approval and backing, Dean
Joseph A. Bursley, in charge of FERA
placements, said yesterday.
The impossibility of tracing chisel-
ers in any other manner leaves the
administration in a position in which
it must depend solely on the student
body for assistance, the dean asserted.
It may be stated, the dean contin-
ued, that is only because there are
so many cases of extreme need on
the campus that the FERA adminis-
tration is requesting the co-operation
of the student body in reporting chis-
elers. Every job on the FERA list can
be filled with a student who is in
urgent need, he insisted.
Definition of a Chiseler
The person who has an FERA job
and who uses his pay check for dances
or moving picture shows and not for
necessities can be branded a chiseler,
Dean Bursley said. He continued,
saying that the purpose of Federal
aid to college students is to allow
them to begin or continue their edu-
Dean Bursley handles all place-
ments on FERA projects and is a

Rioting Breaks Out
In Spanish Strike
MADRID, Oct. 4. -(A)- The
rattle of gun fire broke out late
tonight in the Prosperidad district
as a general strike called in oppo-
sition to the new government of
Premier Allejando Lebroux gained
momentum. Two persons were in-

MADRID, Oct. 4.- (R) -Shots were
exchanged between guards patrolling
the district on the outskirts of the
city and a disorderly group of strik-
ers. The demonstrators, after making
a brief stand, against the officers,
dispersed. The men injured were
members of the mob.
Another exchange of shots oc-
curred at the Plaza San Vincente. No
one was reported injured there.
The strike appeared to be spread-
ing, taxicabs, tramways and subways
closing down. Chief of Police Munoz
Castellanos said he expected the strike
to become generally effective at any
moment, but added that his forces
were prepared to preserve order and to
see that necessary provisions are
brought into Madrid.
Meanwhile troops were being held

Caution Urged
In Observation
Of Silent Period
Warning To Sororities Is
Issued By Betty Aigler
On PledgingRules'
Caution should be taken by all
sororities in the observance of the
silent period which began with the
termination of the formals last night
and will continue until 9 p.m. Monday
was the warning issued by Betty
Aigler, '35, presidentsofdPanhellenic
Association yesterday.
Because of pledging on Sunday, this
rule is often misinterpreted. It means,
she said, that no woman can be
rushed again until the day after
pledge Sunday.
Preference slips will be sent to the
women who have received bids from
some sorority. Those slips must be
returned before 12:15 p.m Saturday
to the office of the dean of women.
Miss Aigler warned the new students
that no slip can be withdrawn once
it is signed and turned in. "Rushees
should be sure of what they want be-
fore they sign," she said, adding that
too often decisions on pledging were
made before the rushee really con-.
sidered what she wanted in a sorority.
Rumors have reached Panhellenic
recently that sorority women have
been double-dating with rushees, or
getting dates for them. Rushees should
take a stand against any such illegal
means of inducing them to join a
sorority, Miss Aigler stated. "Should
any of these rumors be substantiated,
immediate action will be taken against
the houses violating the rule,' she
Information as to fees charged by
a house and other such information
may be secured in the office of the
dean of women from Miss Jeannette
Perry, and rushees are urged to take
advantage of this service. if they are
in doubt about their financial capa-
bility to join.
Accused Killer
Goes To Stand
In Own Behalf
WILKES BARRE, Pa., Oct. 4. - (A)
-The first witness in his own de-
fense, Robert Allen Edwards took the
stand late today to deny that he had
slain Freda McKechnie, his neighbor-
hood sweetheart, and to set up a
claim that she was killed accidentally
by falling against a boat.
Questioned by Frank McGuigan,
chief defense counsel, in the "Amer-
ican Tragedy" case, he told of the
swimming party at Harvey's Lake
where the state accuses the 21-year-
old mine surveyor of slaying Freda
so that he might marry another girl.
"She climbed into a boat and I saw
her fall," Edwards testified.
"I ran to her. There wasn't any
heart beat. I realized Freda was dead.
"I don't know how to explain it.
I was in a panic, in fright. I didn't
know what to do.
"I went to the Sandy Beach Hotel
porch. There were some people there.
I don't know whether I said anything
to them. I got back into the car and
thought of the blackjack. I thought if
there were some marks on her I would
not be likely to be blamed.
"I went back, lifted her body out of
the boat. The body bent forward and
I struck it on the head with the black-
"I don't know - I didn't know what
I was doing, but I towed the body out
into the water."

The Commonwealth had contended
that Edwards struck the McKechnie
girl with the blackjack as they were

submitted to him by the faculty.
They are: Prof. John W. Bradshaw,
of the mathematics department; Prof.
Clarence D. Thorpe of the English
department; Prof. George R. LaRue,
of the zoology department; and Prof.
Charles F. Remer, of the economics
These men will serve on the Execu-

largest division with Dean Edward
H. Kraus, who is chairman, Prof. Ar-
thur E. R. Boak, chairman of the
history department, and Prof. Dewitt
H. Parker, chairman of the philosophy
department. The appointments are
expected to be indorsed by the Board
of Regents at its next meeting.
Two of them w'ere named to replace
Professor-Emeritus William H. Hobbs,
former head of the geology depart-
ment, who resigned last year, and
Prof. I. L. Sharfman, chairman of the
economics department, who has re-
signed from the committee.
Formed Last Year
The Executive Committee of the
literary college was formed by the
Board of Regents last year, a tempo-
rary committee being set up. Then
from a list of 12 names submitted to
him by the faculty, the President ap-
pointed the members. Though the
terms are normally three years in
length, those of Professors Boak and
Parker were only two, expiring next
year. Thus two new members ordi-
narily are added to the committe each
Meeting each Friday afternoon, the
Executive Committee is charged with
the complete running of the literary
college. This includes appointments,
budgetary matters, matters of curric-
ulum, and the like. Its action, is sub-
ject, of course, to approval of the
President and the Regents, which is
usually given as a matter of course.
Dean Kraus regards the formation
of this committee in a very favorable
light. In his opinion, "it adds to effi-
cient management of the University's
largest unit, and tends to work for
greater faculty co-operation.
New Hearing
Denied Two In
Southern Case
MONTGOMERY, Ala., Oct. 4. - (AY
- The Alabama Supreme Court today
denied an application for a rehear-
ing on the appeal of Heywood Pat-
terson and Clarence Norris, two of
nine Negro defendants in the "Scotts-
boro case." The Negroes were con-
victed and sentenced to death in Mor-
gan Circuit Court last December. The
Supreme.Court set Dec. 7 for the date
of execution.
The Alabama Supreme Court had
confirmed the sentence imposed by
Judge W. W. Callahan at Decatur on
June 28, and attorneys for the Negroes
immediately had filed an application
for a rehearing.
The action of the high court today
leaves only the United States Supreme
Court or executive clemency to save
the Negroes from the electric chair.
In asking for a continuance of
other trials in the case after Norris

had been convicted last Dec. 6, Samuel
Leibowitz, of New York, said if the
State Supreme Court confirmed the
sentences, an appeal to the United
State Supreme Court would be taken.

uled for 4 a.m. from Ford Airport
