Judges Announce


Winners In

Hopwood Contest,

Essay Field


Only 45 Freshmen

John Frederick And Carl
Pollmar Receive Fiction,
Poetry Awards
Winners in the 1934-35 Freshman
Hopwood Contest were announced
yesterday by the committee of judges
composed of Prof. L. A. Strauss, chair-
man of the English department, Wil-]
fred B. Shaw, director of alumni rela-
tions, and Dr. Frank E. Robbins, as-
sistant to the President.
First prize of $50 in the field of the
essay was awarded to Eve Polk, Ann
Arbor, for "Sound Out of Silence."I
Miss Polk's winning essay was a per-
sonal statement concerning poetry
and literary criticism entering chiefly
on Edna St. Vincent Millay.
"Chichester" by Doris J. Kaphan,
Far Rockaway, N. Y., a vigorous socio-
logical analysis of the author's home
town, received the second prize of $40.
W. W. Sleator, Jr., Ann Arbor, was
awarded the third prize of $30 for his
essay "Design For Thinking," and "I
Open My Eyes" by A. K. Lake, Berla-
mont, was the judges' choice for the
fourth prize of $20.j
Four prizes were awarded in the
field of fiction and one in poetry. The
judges explained that the prize money
was distributed in accordance with
the merit exhibited by the manu-
scripts in the three fields. As a result
the four awards in the fiction contest
were distributed differently than
those of the essay contest, and but
one award was made for poetry.
Airplane Story Submitted
"Delay," an account of an air-
plane's forced landing in the barren;
deforested land of northern Michigan,
by John Frederick, Glennie, received
the first prize of $50 in the field of
The other three awards in this field
were made equal by the judges. Al-
fred H. Lovell, Jr., Ann Arbor, was
awarded $30 for his story "And So
Grew The Vine." Lovell is the son of
Prof. Alfred H. Lovell of the engineer-
ing school.
This year, for the first time, stu-
dents in the engineering school were
allowed to enter the contest. Two
students entered, and one, Peter Mog-
netti, Detroit, was the author of "Olive
Drab," which was awarded a $30 prize
by the judges.
F. Randall Jones, Washington, D.
C., received the other prize of $30
awarded by the judges in the fiction
contest for his story of a suicide,
"Heaven From Earth."
The sole prize of $20 in the poetry,
though 13 manuscripts were submit-
ted in this field, went to Carl H. Poll-
mar, Pleasant Ridge. Pollmar's prize-
winning poem was titled "Old De-

The judges announced that 45
freshmen entered the contest, 12
women and 33 men as compared to
54 entries last year. Two out of the
nine prize winners were women, two
contestants were from the School of
Music and two from the College of
Engineering. The judges commented
that even more conspicuously than in
1934, subjects dealing with class room
or campus were rare.
Poetry, the judges said, seemed
weaker than in 1934. Essay topics
included several on the aspects of war
and its prevention. There were few
informal essays, and few carried foot-
notes or bibliographies, though a con-
siderable number dealt thoughtfully
with familiar and important ideas, the

judges stated.

T o Withdraw
One hundred' and twenty-five stu-
dents in the College of Literature,
Science and the Arts were required to
withdraw at the end of the first sem-
ester because of the lowness of their
grades, Assistant Dean Wilber R.
Humphreys announced yesterday. In
addition, 15 were sent notices that
they could not register for the second
semester until their records had been
cleared and they had received special
permission, he said.
Out of those required to withdraw,
50 actually left and 75 were imme-
diately reinstated, being offered their
second opportunity to achieve pass-
ing work this semester rather than
having it deferred until some later
time. If their work does not improve
satisfactorily they will be required
to leave permanently in June, Dean
Humphreys said.

man and Alison Tennant as the leads.
Miss Gorman will portray Amy, just
one of the millions of New York's

MUSKEGON, Feb.23 -4A)- Es-
tablishment of so-called "fresh-
man colleges" under the FERA was
assailed here last night by Dr. John
L. Seaton, president of Albion
college, as a "serious threat to the
standards of higher education."
He declared their principal bene-
fit is "political" and be-littled the
quality of instruction compared
with long-established colleges and

(By Associated Press)
Snow, sleet, violent winds and
whirling dust storms darkened the
world's weather map, killing and de-
stroying on both hemispheres.
IHowling gales pounded d stess
calls out of seven vessels in both the
Atlantic and Pacific oceans and bat-
tered an airplane under the waves,
while inland storms swept over the
east and southwestern parts of the
United States and through south and
central France.
At least 10 deaths were counted in I
the East during the 24 hours ending
Saturday night as a result of snow,
hail and sleet. The slick highways
caused numerous fractures, sprains
and other injuries.
Six persons were killed and five
others injured when a windstorm
swept through France, toppling chim-
neys, unroofing houses and disrupt-
ing communications.
At sea, i... yo were gale-bound
in the Bay of Biscay. One vessel, the
Italian freighter Taide was believed
to have gone to the bottom, and an
airplane crashedin flames inthe
Dutch West Indies. The Taides' crew.
was rescued by the S.S. Galea.
Ann Arbor will probably not be af-
fected by the wave of destructive
weather sweeping over the world, it
was indicated here last night.
The weather yesterday was unus-
ually mild locally, and although a
sharp drop in temperature is expected
today, no damaging sleet and wind-
storms are anticipated.

(Complete Box Score on Page 3)
A crippled Michigan hockey team
won undisputed possession of the
Western Conference crown here last
"ight for the first time in five years,
when they defeated Minnesota, 3 to 1,
for a season's record in Big Ten com-
petition of four victories, two ties, and
no defeats.
Minnesota needed a victory last
night to tie for the title. Fifteen hun-
ired fansusaw the undisputedtitle
lipping out of the Wolverines' hands
in the first five minutes. Before
three minutes had elapsed Russ Gray
had scored for Minnesota, and three
minutes later Michigan's tiny squad
of seven men was cut to six when
Dick Berryman, regular right wing,
was knocked to the ice, suffering a
possible slight concussion which
would keep him out of the remainder
f the game.
Few Substitutions
With Walt Courtis filling the breach
the Wolverines played through the re-
maining 55 minutes without a substi-
tution, providing Bill Chase with an
air-tight defense and shaking Vic
Heyliger and Captain Johnny Sperf
loose for the winning goals in the sec-
ond and third periods.
Sherf climaxed three years of stel-
lar hockey by playing the entire 60
minutes and flashing through Min-
nesota's forcing type of play for Mich-
igan's first and third goals on solo
dashes which have made him the most
feared player in the Middle West. Co-
captain Johnny Jewell had to be con-
tent with a running account of the
game over a telephone wire direct to
his bed in the University Hospital,
where he is recovering from an ap-
pendicitis operation.
Sherf Scores Alone
Minnesota's first line looked invinc-
ible as it swept to the attack in the
opening minutes of the game, Ray
Bjorck passing to Gray for the first
tally before Michigan's defense could
start functioning properly. Five min-
utes later Sherf went on his first solo
drive, taking the puck out of a melee
around the Michigan net, outwitting
the Gopher defensemen and burying
the rubber in the left corner of the
net out of Bud Wilkinson's reach.
Learning between periods that Ber-
ryman was definitely out of the game,
the Michigan iron-men returned in
the second period to play a strictly de-
fensive game and wait for the breaks.
The defense which Coach Eddie Low-
rey perfected in two weeks to protect
his inexperienced goalie functioned
perfectly, with the able cooperation of
that same goalie, to stop the savage
Gopher drives as four and five men
came down the ice.
Midway in the second period Hey-
liger snatched a loose puck and sank
what proved to be the deciding goal
on a flukey shot which brought the
cheering fans to their feet. His knee-
high shot from just across the blue
line trickled through Wilkinson's legs
and into the net.
In the white heat of the closing
minutes of the period Larry David
and Russ Gray started a slugging
match and were banished for two
The tempo of Minnesota's attack
grew faster as the third period pro-
gressed, and Michigan maintained its
2-to-1 lead. The Gophers insisted that
they were robbed of the tying goal in
the last five minutes, but Referee
Mickey McGuire maintained that the
puck had not entered the net.
Sherf's goal with three minutes to
go added a heroic finishing touch to
a scintillating career and made a
Michigan victory certain. With five
Gophers dowrt the ice the Michigan
captain captured the puck on his
own blue line, outskated the Minne-
sota defensemen and forced Goalie
Wilkinson to commit himself before
burying the puck in the net.
Heyliger carried the brunt of most
of Michigan's offensive thrusts and

Nearly 53 Per Cent Of Students
Working Way Through College


Four thousand, fifty students, or
nearly 53 per cent of the entire un-
dergraduate body, are partially or
wholly self-supporting, figures com-
piled in the office of the Registrar
from data furnished by registration
cards reveal,
Approximately three-fifths of the
men students and one-quarter of the
women earn either all or part of their
way through college.
Each student on registering is
asked, but not required, to indicate
whether he or she is wholly or par-
tially self-supporting. Of a total of

who work their own way through
college is far greater than that of the'
women. Of the men students who
answered the question, 22.5 per cent
are wholly self-supporting and 38.8
per cent partially so, while 38.6 per
cent are financed from home.
Of the girls, 11.7 per cent are en-
tirely self-supporting and 16.8 per
cent earn part of their expenses, the
remaining 71.5 per cent being non-
self supporting. Thus, among the
men, those who earn all or part of
their expenses, 61.3 per cent of the
total, far outnumber those whose way
is paid for by others.
Officials exnressed the belief that
