The Series Was Honest .. .
Italy's Defensive War ..



League Sanctions
Against Mussolini
Voted By Council

Duce Named Aggressor;
Arraigned For Violation
Of Covenant
Issue Goes Before
Penalty Is Severance Of
All Trade And Financial
Relations With Italy
GENEVA, Oct. 7. -- (P) - The
councl of the League of Nations sol-
emnly pronounced Italy's war against
Ethiopia "an act of war against all
other members of the League" today
and thus made sanctions against the
Fascist state compulsory.
It was the first time in League his-
tory that a great power thus ar-
raigned was found guilty of war in
violation of the covenant.
The Council approved a report of a
committee of six holding that Italy
disregarded Article XII of the cove-
nant by proceeding to war against
Ethiopia without waiting three
months for arbitration by the League.
Article XVI of the League provides
that members shall undertake to
subject a violator of the covenant to
"the severance of all trade or finan-
cial relations and the prohibition of
all intercourse between their nation-
als and the nationals of the covenant-
breaking state."
There also is an optional provision
for the employment of armed forces
against a violator of the covenant.
There was little likelihood that this
would be applied except as a last re-
Issue Goes To Assembly
The whole issue now goes to the as-
sembly, which meets in "urgent" ses-
sion Wednesday. It is expected a
coordinating committee consisting of
' ┬░pes ntativs of theAssembly and
the Council will be formed to draw
up a plan of economic sanctions
against Italy and to fix the date when
they should apply.
The decision-taken as Emperor
Haile Selassie massed thousands of
tribal warriors in the north and south
of Ethiopia for counterattacks
against Il Duce's Roman legion -op-
ened the way for the imposition of
sanctions against the Italians.
The committee of 13, which is the
full council with the exception of
Italy, held Rome "resorted to war in
disregard of its covenants under Ar-
ticle XII" of the covenant of the
Earlier, a committee of six mem-
bers of the council reported similarly
to the council.
With the discussion of sancions
the next step at Geneva, attention
for the moment was centered on the
declaration of the directors of the
Suez Canal Company, meeting in
Paris, that the "gateway to the Or-
ient" must remain open to all coun-

ADDIS ABABA. - Ethiopian
sources disclosed today that Emperor
Haile Selassie plans to lead an army
of 120,000 fighters into the field
against Italy within two weeks.
This disclosure was made as rumor
circulated in the capital that Italy
has proposed peace terms to the em-
peror. One of the imperial advisers
called the rumors "almost" true, but
declined further comment.
In Rome, Italian officials said peace
terms were farthest from their
Luigi Vinci-Gigliuci, the Italian
minister, said he was not informed of
such a proposal.

Terrific Blast
Rocks Chicago
8 Killed, Scores Injured;
Others Feared Buried In
CHICAGO, Oct. 7. - (P) -A ter-
rific explosion, which witnesses said
hoisted a six-story paint factory as
a giant firecracker raises a tin can,1
killed at least eight workers, injured
50 others, and sent a shower of de-
bris over a block square area today.
Fire officials directing the razing
of the debris by crews of pickaxe men
and others equipped with lifting jacks
and acetylene torches to cut the
rough, twisted girders, expressed fear
the total fatalities might reach a
score. They estimated it would take
a week to complete a search of the

Detroiters Go Wild
With Joy As Tigers
Take World Series
DETROIT, Oct. 7. -(P) -The
Tiger let loose a roar of victory to-
night - a roar that started as the
winning run crossed the plate for
a world championship.
No sooner had that last run scored
than a surge for the downtown area
began. Police estimated at least
500,000 screaming, jubilant fans were
parading the streets, on foot and in
automobiles, in a celebration that
for good natured exuberance was an
armistice, a mardi gras and an Amer-
ican Legion convention all rolled into
Loud speaker trucks, sound appa-
ratus pitched to maximum, blared a
triumphant parody of "Hold That
Traffic packed itself into a jam
that outdid the wildest nightmares
ever dreamed by the oldest traffic
cop on the force.
Firemen with chemical tanks
squelched victory bonfires built on
downtown streets.
Michigan's band, the Fighting
Hundred, was an integral part of
the hilarious celebration, marching
at the head of a parade from the
Court House around Campus Martius
and up Woodward Ave. One clarinet
was reported stolen, but the members
sang "Hail, Hail, the Gang's All

Twelve Killed
As Transport
Plane Crashes
Passengers And Crew Die
As United Airliner Hits
Knoll InWyoming
CHEYENNE, Wyo., Oct. 7. - (P) -
Twelve persons - nine passengers
and a crew of three - were crushed
to death early today as a United
Air Lines transport plane crashed on
a knoll on the rolling plains 15 miles
west of here. The ship was flying
from Oakland, Calif., to New York.
The veteran pilot, H. A. Collison,
apparently had started down from
high altitudes in ideal weather with
his twin-motored Boeing liner, prep-
aratory to a scheduled stop here,
when he struck the top of one hill,
lost, his propellor and plummeted
against another hillside.
The plane smashed into the ground
about 2:15 a.m., Mountain Standard
Time. It was torn and twisted but
did not catch fire.
After a regular stop at Salt Lake
City just before last midnight, the
cross-country liner (U.A.L. Trip No.
4), had reported its progress by radio
and asked wind information just five
minutes flying time west of Cheyenne.

Cochrane Races Across
Plate With The Winning
Run On Goose's Wallop
Bridges' Courage
Displayed In Ninth
Ovation Acclaims Him As
He Bowls Over 3 Men
With Hack On Third
-(Special)-Because Tommy Bridges
ias the courageous heart of a truly
reat pitcher and because Goose Gos-
in hit in the most important "pinch"
f his life, the Detroit Tigers took the
sixth game of their title battle with
she Chicago Cubs today by a score
>f 4-3, and with it their first World
Series in 48 years.
The deciding clash of the Series was
>ne of the most exciting ball games
ver played as each team pounded
ut 12 hits. Every inning was packed
with thrills as resounding base hits
:ept potential winning runs on the
tacks throughout the entire game.
When in the ninth inning, with the
;core tied at three all, Stanley Hack,
pub third baseman, caught hold of
Pommy Bridges' fast ball and lined a
errific drive over Walker's head and
ast the flag pole in deep center, the
whole crowd of rabid Tiger fans
mitted a great groan. Hack, his
;pikes flashing in the sunlight as he
iurned up the base paths, pulled up
it third as the throw from Walker
ame into the infield. The ninth in-
aing of the sixth game of the World
Series, the score tied at three runs,
Iaclk on third base and nobody out.
Bridges On The Spot
Slim Tommy Bridges stood on the
mound confronting Bill Jurges, al-
ways a dangerous batter and a defi-
ite "money" player. Through his
nind must have run the memory of
ast year's series when the Tigers re-
urned to Detroit with the same 3-2
ame lead on the St. Louis Cardinals,
hat they had held on the Cubs at the
start of today's battle, and then
ropped both games and the series.
And now, after eight hectic innings
of hurling against a band of fight-
ing Cubs who were playing a great
ball game in a desperate effort to tie
up the series and send it into the sev-
enth game, Bridges found himself in
as tough a situation as any pitcher
has ever been called upon to face.
A. man on third, nobody out. An easy
fly, a slow roller, any kind of a pitch-
ing misplay and Hack would gallop
home with the run that would put the
Cubs out in front. The Tigers would
have only one more chance at bat,
they would be pressing, and in all
probability, it would be the deciding
run of the game.
The Crowd Roars
Tommy faced Jurges and proceeded
to curve him to death. Bill let the
first one break over the plate; tried
to knock the second one out of the
park and chopped hopelessly at the
third strike as it skidded into Coch-
rane's glove. The crowd was standig
to a man, roaring their approval a
every pitch, pulling .for Tommy to
prevent that run from scoring. Larry
French came to the plate. Strike one,
strike two, the crowd. giving Bridges
a huge, swelling, entreating cheer as
he loosed every pitch. Another curve
to French which he barely topped.
Tommy calmly picked it up, bluffed
Hack back to third and threw to
Owen for the out. Two away, the
crowd breathed more easily. The
infield moved back off the grass.
Tommy pitched one ball to that ever
dangerous Augie Galan, then two
strikes. The crowd was screaming
with approval, and then Galan hoist-
ed a short fly which Goslin easily
gathered up in short left field. Never

has Navin Fieldheard such an ova-
tion as when the crowd of both Cub
and Tiger rooters joined together
in acclaiming one of the greatest
pitching feats of all time. Old women
pounded drunks on the back, tired
business men's voices cracked with
emotion as they continued to acclaim
Tommy Bridges' heroism.
Goose Does It
The Tigers wasted little time in
their half of the ninth getting Larry
French in the hole. Flea Clifton

Italo-Ethiopian Crisis Recalls
World War Days In Ann Arbor

'Man Of Aran' To Be Shown
By Art Cinema League Friday

Improbable as the Italo-Ethiopian
war becoming world-wide might seem,
the possibility recalled an Ann Arbor
far from its usual placid self to those
who were here in the World War;
days of nearly 20 years ago.
The Union, in the process of coiV-
struction then, and the Mimes The-
ater, now the Laboratory Theater,
were used as mess halls; President
Ruthven's home was made head-
quarters for the Red Cross surgical
supplies; the majority of fraternity
houses were turned into barracks;
rooming houses were made to accom-
modate twice as many as they were
capable of under ordinary circum-
stances; and the floor of Barbour
Gymnasium once broke down under
the weight of marching students.
It was general turmoil for every-
body. The University was unable to

was "you're in the army now, so
forget your studies." Prof. Edward
S. Everett of the English depart-
ment, recalling the many students
who fell asleep in class, believes that
advice was accepted by a good many.
Dr. Louis P. Hall, professor-emeri-
tus of the School of Dentistry who
was then in charge of the local di-
vision of the Red Cross, and Mrs. Hall,
who was chairman of the supply com-
mittee of the Red Cross, remember
of doing nothing but "packing things
and sending them off to the training
camps." Their son Richard was the
first American soldier killed in the
war, and their son-in-law fired the
last shot of the war at 10:59 a.m., one
half minute before the Armistice was
signed. That last shot did a lot of
harm, ruining a railroad station and
a railroad train, and the fuse of the
shell is now in the Smithsonian In-

"Man of Aran," selected as the best
picture of the year by the National
Board of Review, comes to the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre next Friday un-
der the auspices of the Art Cinema'
Since its release it has earned the
unanimous acclaim of critics. But
even more convincing is the approval
it has gained from Professor H. T.
Price of the English department.
In his estimate of "Man of Aran,"
Professor Price calls it: "One of the
most wonderful pictures I have ever
seen. It is a great work of art.
"In photography of natural scenery
it is the very greatest thing which has
ever been done. Most surprising is
the photography of the action of

"The work is a landmark in the
history of the film."
But the novelty of "Man of Aran"
does not rest solely in the picture it-
self. It was as difficult a job to get
the natives of Aran to act as it was
to get cameras and equipment close
enough to the 500-feet waves which
pound the ragged coast.
For inhabitants are an inconsistent
group and only when they felt in-
clined would they add themselves
to the payroll of the director, Robert
In fact it took 2 months before the
movie crew could gain the confidence
of the natives sufficiently to broach
the matter of appearing in films.
