Minutes Of Game
By ARTHUR W. CARSTENS
Michigan's Varsity basketball team
lost to Minnesota, 29 to 26,,here last
The Minnesota five demonstrated
an easy superiority during most of
the game and led, 25 to 12, with 15
minutes left to play, but the Wolver-
ines made a determined bid for a vic-
tory in the last few minutes which
was cut short by the final gun with
Michigan trailing by three points.
The defeat, fifth in six Conference
games for Michigan, left them in
eighth place in the standings since
Northwestern also lost.
With 15 minutes left and his team
trailing by 13 points Coach Franklin
Cappon withdrew his impotent reg-
ulars from the game, substituting
Solomon, Tomagno, and Joslin for
Plummer, Patanelli, and Gee.
Tomagno started the drive with a
shot 'from outside the foul line and
Meyers added two points on free
throws, but Baker got back two points
when he broke down the floor ahead
of Rudness for an easy basket.
A minute later Joslin got his only
basket on a pass from Solomon, but
again the gain was wiped out, when
Norman scored on a "sleeper" under
Michigan's basket. When Jennings
replaced Rudness, Coach MacMillan
substituted Svendson, a ponderous
tackle on the Gopher grid team, and
Frienuth, a shot putter.

Hull Will Deliver
Dr. John Parker Stoddard, '59, the
'University's oldest living alumnus-
perhaps the oldest living graduate
of any American college or univer-
sity-will celebrate his hundredth
birthday Feb. 22 in Muskegon.
The occasion will be marked with
a special testimonial dinner at noon
in the Occidental hotel, Muskegon,
given by the University of Michigan
Club of Muskegon, the Muskegon
and the Michigan Medical Societies,
.he Muskegon Albion Club, the Mus-
kegon luncheon clubs and the Uni-
versity Alumni - Association.
Dr. Stoddard was graduated from
Albion College in 1855, from the Uni-
versity in 1859 and later took his
medical degree from the Bellevue
Hospital Medical College in New
York. After graduation he practiced
medicine in Albion for 12 years, later
moving to Muskegon where he prac-
iced 12 years more, being surgeon
for the West Michigan Railway
Company and' a member of the
Board of Examiners for Soldiers
Pensimns and county physician.
In 1891 Dr. Stoddard went to De-
land, Fla., where he engaged in his
profession and in orange grove cul-
tivation for 8 years. Previous to his
return to Muskegon he resided in
Norwcod, Mass., and Missoula, Mont.
He visited Ann Arbor in 1905 for
the reunion of the class of 1859, of
which he is the only surviving mem-

ciation, and University Vice-Presi-
dent Shirley W. Smith will attend
the Muskegon celebration. Vice-
President Smith will participate as
the personal representative of Pres-
ident Alexander G. Ruthven.
Dr. Stoddard was born on Feb. 22,
1835 in Jackson when that city was
a village known as Jacksonburg. He
entered the University as a member
of a class of 39 young men. At that
time the .institution had been estab-
lished in Ann Arbor for only 15
years, after its transfer from De-
troit, and Dr. Stoddard likes to tell
"how lonely and unkempt was the
whole outfit," as compared with the
institution he saw on later visits.
Meyers andJennings lput Michiga
within striking distance with baskets
in quick succession, bringing the score
to 29 to 22. Ford and Rieck came in
for Michigan and Norman quickly
returied in place of Friemuth.
With only a minute left to play,
Jennings got his second sensational
basket from far out, and Ford sank
an underhand shot from the side. In
the last 30 seconds a barrage of shots
from all conceivable angles failed to
connect for the Wolverines.
Lanky Gordon Norman matched
John Gee's height and showed Mich-
igan's sophomore how the pivot posi-
tion should be played, directing Min-
nesota's floor play and feeding the
ball to his mates on fast breaks, or
himself connecting on reverse shots
from close in.
Gee was caught flat-footed time
after time as the guards' passes to him
were intercepted by the faster Goph-
ers. While Meyers was unsuccessfully
trying to draw out the Minnesota de-
fense with long shots, his running
mate, Dick Evans, allowed Jim Baker
to score ten points in as many min-
utes, before being replaced by Rud-

basket in the first 30 minutes and

Law Balks At Lawyers'
Diagonal Sleigh Ride
Two law students became a little
too exhuberant Saturday, when real-
izing that the terror of semester ex-
aminations had finally been allayed,
they hired themselves a horse and
cutter and went cutting down the
middle of the diagonal.
Expecting to encounter a little
difficulty at the engineering build-
ing arch, they also encountered the
Law, in the person of Patrolman Er-
win Schmidt, who escorted them to
the county jail. Arraigned in court
yesterday, the two pleaded guilty to-
a charge of being drunk and disor-
derly, and were fined.
The two gave names of "Robert
Hancock" and "Louis Haggins,"
neither of which is listed in the stu-
dent directory. Their law training
aided them only to the extent of
keeping their real names off the police
record, according to local officials.
Dr. Slutz To Speak
At Lane Hall Today
Dr. Frank B. Slutz of Dayton, 0,,
noted authority on religious, social,
and economic problems will. speak
under- the auspices of the Student
Christian Association at 3:30 p.m. to-
day in the upper room of Lane Hall
on "The Vocation of Vocations."'
Last night Dr. Slutz addressed the
cabinets of the S.C.A. and Guilds and
other campus leaders who met to-
gether in a joint meeting. The'topic
of his talk for the closed session was
"The Lonely Gleam."
Dr. Slutz has had much experi-
ence both as a lecturer and as an edu-
cator. For many years he was instruc-
tor in psychology and English litera-
ture at Chicago Teacher's College,
and taught at the summer sessions
of the University of Colorado and
Mount Union College. In addition to
his work as a college instructor, Dr.
Slutz was vice-president of the Day-
ton Structural Steel Co. for ten years
and for twelve years was director of

Annual Report Also Asks
Increase In Number Of
Of Lower Income
Reports Of Vice-Presidents
And Deans Contained In
The necessity of an increase in
faculty salaries and the number of
teaching positions "if the kind of
work is to be done that is demanded
of an institution of higher education
today" was strongly emphasized by
President Alexander G. Ruthven in
his annual report to the Board of
Commenting on the program for
reducing operating costs of the Uni-
versity, he reported that by the use
of this plan of effecting economies
necessitated by the reduced income,
it was possible to continue all of the
important functions of the Univer-
sity, although with less effectiveness
than in previous years.
President Ruthven pointed out,
however, that, while satisfactory as
a method of meeting an emergency,
there is considerable doubt that the
institution can continue to operate
successfully on the present income.
The excuse that the small number
of positions available to graduates
has decreased the need for educa-
tional oportunities is "largely the re-
sult of hysteria and is to be logi-
cally defended only on the ground
that education is merely specialized
training for a living," he observed.
This is at best only a secondary
aim, and the broader concept of
school training is that its primary ob-
jective "should be to train one to
think clearly and act rightly," he
"From this point of view," Pres-
ident Ruthven continued, "no less
than its best efforts are demanded
of any people at all times to pro-
mote the welfare of its educational
The process of reducing the ex-
penses of the University to anI
amount consistent with the income
as set by the State Legislature was
broken up into four separate steps:
First, general services; second, ex-
ecutive functions, student personnel
units, and all general offices and
general accounts; third, readjust-
ment of staffs and offerings of sev-
eral schools and colleges; and,
fourth, decrease in salaries.
The President's Report, which is
published each year by the Univers-
ity, also includes annual Reports of

NEW YORK, Feb. 11.-(P)--A
magnetic "stool pigeon" slips into
Sing Sing prison this week to sign
the death warrant for gun smuggling.
The invention is expected to detect
every weapon brought to the portals
of the big house.
The inventor is Prof. Leon There-
mc, formerly of the state physico-
technical institution at Leningrad.
The gun detector consists only of
two little boxes, one on either side
Professor Theremin, a thin-faced
young Russian, who came to America
six years ago, told how the apparatus
in one of the boxes sent out a constant
stream of magnetic impulses. In the
box on the opposite side of the door-
way was a receiver that had nothing
to say while the field remained un-
But the receiver set off a loud
buzzer the minute the magnetic field
was distorted by a metal object.
The apparatus is being installed at
Sing Sing at the front entrance. The
same detector already is in operation
at Alcatraz, the government's "es-
cape-proof" prison at San Francisco.
The prisoners there were first to
bestow onto it the title of "stool

He began where Anthony M. Hauck,

ecutor, left off. It was Hauck's task
to outline the state's evidence, which
he said, proved that Hauptmann, and
Hauptmann alone, kidnaped and
killed the baby.

DETROIT, Feb. 11.-(A)-Public
works projects by Michigan commu-
nities now total $787,091,977, the state'
planning commission announced to-
day at the conclusion of the first of a
series of nine regional meetings it
will hold to coordinate Michigan's ef-
forts to share in the Administration's"
proposed $4,000,000 program.
More than 130 municipal officials
from the Detroit area heard Gov.
Frank D. Fitzgerald express the opin-
ion that the planning commission will
be made a permanent organization to
carry out a comprehensive program
of state development.
In the huge total cost of the pro-
posed projects, the $415,000,000 pro-
gram by the city of Detroit was out-
standing. The state conservation
recommends expenditures of $75,000,-
000, while the state highway depart-
ment had a program involving ex-
penditure of $243,000,000.

Secretary of State Cordell Hull
will deliver the principal address at
the annual Commencement Exercises
of the University to be held Monday
morning, June 17, at Ferry Field.
Announcement of Secretary Hull's
acceptance of the invitation to speak
was made yesterday by Dr. Frank
E. Robbins, assistant to President
Alexander G. Ruthven, after word
had been received from Washington.
The topic of his speech was not an-
nounced at the time.
Secretary Hull, who is a native of
Carthage, Tenn., has been a promin-
ent figure in diplomatic circles since
first entering public life as a member
of the 60th Congress from the
fourth Tennessee district in 1907. He
served as a member of the' House
of Representatives until 1929; this
period of service was interrupted only
once, for two years.
In 1930, he was elected United
States Senator from Tennessee, but
resigned in March, 1933, to fill his
present position in the President's
Previous to his Congressional ca-
reer, Secretary Hull was a member
of the Tennessee House of Repre-
sentatives and a judge in the Fifth
Judicial Circuit of Tennessee. He has
been a member of the bar since 1891.
He was chairman of the Ameri-
can delegation sent to the 1933 World
Economic Conference in London, and
has'served in various advisory capac-
ities continuously since his appoint-
ment to the cabinet post.
Secretary Hull has served for many
years on the Democratic National
Committee, and from 1921 to 1924 he
was chairman of the Democratic Na-
tional Executive Committee.
His appearance here will mark the
second time in as many years that
a member of the President's cabin-
et has spoken locally. Frances Perk-

Ballot In Poll
Semi-Final Returns Show
Michigan Favors League
Casting the heaviest ballot of 115
leading American universities polled,
undergraduates at the University def-
initely agreed that the United States
can stay out of a war, according to
semi-final returns of the Literary Di-
gest College Peace Poll.
Local students to date have cast
3,197 votes but are closely followed by
Harvard undergraduates who have
sent in 3,167 ballots.
Nearly one sixth of the 91,055 stu-
dents voting stated that they would
not bear arms in case the United
States was invaded. Of the Michigan
undergraduates 2,566 said they would
fight if invaded while 688 answered
the issue negatively.
In general Michigan students fol.-
lowed the trend of all the universities
on the issues. On the policy of "Should
the United States enter the League
of Nations?" the balloting of all uni-
versities was almost a tie, with 50.17
per cent voting "yes" and 49.83 per
cent voting "no." The Ann Arbor stu-
dent totals on this issue were 1,819
affirmative replies and 1,432 negative
An overwhelmingly negative reply
greeted the question "would you bear
arms for the United States in the
invasion of the borders of another
country?" Michigan students voted 2,-
816 to 403 against this question, while
the general average on the issue was
82.17 per cent favoring the negative.
