Originally planned as an indoor
meeting at Hill Auditorium, the rally
was moved to South Ferry Field be-
cause of the lack of "true Michigan

indoor session, officials in charge of
the rally stated.
It is planned to place the huge
bonfire near the hillside overlooking
the field, so that students and towns-
people may sit on the bank during the
speeches and songs.
The rally will be short, the entire
program lasting about 30 minutes. In
addition to Coach Cappon's speech,
the band will lead the students in
Michigan songs, while the cheerlead-
ers will lead the crowd in the var-
ious yells.
Officials also announced last night
that the pep meeting will be can-
celled if weather conditions are not
favorable. If rain is falling at 7

Members of the cult toiled tonight
over 400 miles of mountain trail and
rutted road for preliminary proceed-
ings here. Three - a woman and
two men- are charged with "open
and notorious cohabitation."
Short Creek, their picturesque little
settlement, is scarcely 100 miles from
Kingman as the crow flies. The
journey by road is four times that
because of the steep mountain sides
beyond which the colonists have iso-
lated themselves.
The accused are J. C. Spencer,
Sylvia Allred and Price Johnson.
On the outcome of the case hangs
the future of the settlement. Col-
onists say 500 families in Utah are
planning to join them in case the
prosecution fails.
County Attorney E. Elmo Bollinger
made four trips to Short Creek in
proceeding against the accused. He
was defeated at every turn.
Six persons including the three
now facing trial, originally were
charged. Justice of the Peace J. M.
Lauritzen of Short Creek promptly
dismissed these charges on a techni-
cality. Bollinger then swore out new
warrants for Spencer, Johnson and
the Allred woman - but they fled
to the mountains before they could be
taken into custody again.

Seeking a general "yes" or "no"

of the United States today mailed
ballots to its 1,500 member organiza-

Thus, while the chamber previous-
ly has taken a stand on specific laws,
this will be its first opportunity to
go on record for or against theories
which the report contends are em-
bodied generally in legislation en-
acted at the last session of Congress.
In an effort toward impartiality,
the questionnaire not only contains
the full committee report, but prints
it on alternate pages with what are
called "arguments in the negative"
prepared by the chamber's legal staff.
The report takes up 13/ pages;
the "arguments in the negative" 14
pages of finer print.
The questions, based on the re-
1 -Should there be extension of
Federal jurisdiction into matters of
state and local concern?
2-Should the Federal govern-
ment at the present time exercise
Federal spending power without rela-
tion to revenue?
3- Should there be government
competition with private enterprise
for regulatory or other purposes?
4 - Should all grants of authority
by Congress to the executive depart-
ment of the Federal government be
within clearly defined limits?

Greek Republic C(
To End After El
Years Of Existence


ATHENS. Oct. 10. - t4P) - The Na-
tional Assembly, following a Royalist
coup d'etat, tonight voted restora-
tion of the monarchy.
The assembly ordered 11 years of
Greek republicanism to end with the
return of the exiled King George.
It acted after a swift and bloodless
coup by Gen. George Kondylis, min-
ister of war, who seized the helm of
the government and forced the resig-

Martial law was proclaimed and
troops occupied public buildings in
Athens. Quiet prevailed throughout
the country, however.
Kondylis President Of Council
Kondylis - "he little corporal" to
his intimates who are familiar with
his adoration of Alexander the Great
and Napoleon - who has been open-
ly charged by his oppcnents with de-
siring to emulate the dictatorship of
Mussolini in Italy, took-the portfolios
of president of the council and the
minister of economics.
He appointed ardent Royalist as-
sociates to the other cabinet posts.
John Theotokis, former minister of'
agriculture, was named foreign min-
ister, replacing Demetrios Maximos.
M. Schina, former air minister, be-
comes minister of interior.
Dousmanis continues as minister
of navy and Chloros assumes the
portfolio of the ministry of justice.
Kondylis named Tharveris, like the
others, an out-and-out Royalist, as

to make way for the establishment
of the republic.
Kondylis won his first spurs fight-
ing the Turks in 1897 and enhanced
his reputation by overthrowing the
dictatorship of Gen. Pangalos in 1926.

him the twin titles of "strong man"
and "savior of his country."
Eldest son of the late King Con-
stantine, George was barred from
the throne by the Allies because of
his reputed pro-German sympathies.
His younger brother Alexander came
to the throne when Constantine was
deposed in 1917.
Constantine was restored in 1920,
to be deposed again in 1922. George
succeeded him but was himself de-
posed by army and navy officers the
next year. He left Greece in Decem-

but did not offer a serious menace.
One goal of the Fascist armies was
Aksum, religious capital of Ethiopia,
and former political capital. (The
Italian minister announced in Addis

U. S. Government Fiscal
Policies Attacked By
Former President
NEW YORK, Oct. 10. - (A) -
Former President Herbert Hoover to-
night asserted that currei~t national
fiscal and currency policies as pur-
sued at Washington "endangered"
the existence and development of en-
dowed institutions of higher learning
in the United'" States.
Speaking at a dinner of alumni of
Stanford University, Hoover declared
that the "undermining" effect of na-
tional fiscal policies had caused con-
cern on "every board of trustees in
the country."
The alternatives facing colleges and
universities with depreciated endow-
ments, he said, were curtailing activ-"
ties, resorting to the state for sup-
port, or more and larger gifts.
"If our independent institutions
shall become dependent upon tax-
ation and therefore on political gov-
ernment," he added, "a large share
of their independence will have gone."
"Somehow, someway," he con-
cluded, "we cannot allow these insti-
tutions to suffer loss of strength."

GENEVA, Oct. 11. - (Friday) --
Great Britain, supported by the ver-
dict of half a hundred nations in
placing the war guilt in Italo-Ethiop-
ian hostilities against Iatly, began ap-
plying sanctions against Mussolini's
government today, commencing on
the radio front.
The British government acted
swiftly after an historic Assembly
meeting, to choke off a broadcast to
the United States by Baron Pompeo
Aloisi, Il Duce's representative at
The United Kingdom post office,
at the last minute, refused to relay
his words from Geneva via an English
station to the United States.
In his radio speech, Aloisi asserted
he wished merely to explain Italy's
case in the Ethiopian" situation, and
desired to give the American people a
realistic conception of Premier Mus-
solini's East African campaign.

riod rule, that no contact what-
soever will be allowed between the

GENEVA, Oct. 10. - The League of
Nations, with at least 50 of its 59
members definitely on record as ap-
proving the punishment of Italy for
its invasion of Ethiopia, moved today
for a quick application of that pun-
The steering committee of the
League assembly decided that repre-
sentatives of every member of the
League except Italy and Ethiopia
should serve on a committee to co-
ordinate the work of the council and
the assembly in instituting sanctions
against Italy.
Since Germany will leave the
League Oct. 21, the decision means
that the co-ordination commission
will be made up 56 nations.
At a morning meeting the assembly

.;ouncils' condemnation of Italy.
Only Italy, Austria and Hungary
announced non-acceptance, of the
council's report against Italy, al-
though in League circles it was sug-
gested that Albania probably would
at least make reservations to the
general vote of condemnation.

massacre, because of the superiority
of the Italian armament."
He said that he would accept, in
the name of the Ethiopian govern-
ment, all procedure which the League
decides on with a view toward ending
the hostilities but that he would ac-
cept nothing which would place a
premium on aggression.
Representatives of 54 nations at-
tended the morning session, with

"The League is now faced by its
second task," asserted Anthony Eden,
of Great Britain. "Action must be

'Enthusiasm What They Need,'

Survey Shows Increase In Jobs
For Graduate Engineers


Yost Of Students, Team

"Enthusiasm is what they need,"
said the Old Man, as he watched
Coach Kipke put the Varsity through
its paces yesterday. "And enthusiasm
is contagious. If the student body
has it, the team'll have it."
Perhaps Mr. Yost was thinking of
the pep meeting that will be held
down on old South Ferry Field to-
night, the student's answer to Kipke's
demand that "We've got to lick In-
diana." More probably, however, he
was thinking of the Good Old Days,
25 or 30 years ago.
No doubt he was thinking how
student spirit, which backed his great
teams whether they were on the up
or on the down,, gave to his own Point
Minuters the enthusiasm that made
them the great teams they were.
No doubt, as he stood there, watch-

would push Ann Arbor's tiny trolley1
cars from their tracks and roll them
all over the town - when they would1
build huge bonfires in the basement'
of the Octagonal house, which was
on the site of what is now Hill Audi-
But if the Grand Old Man of
Michigan's football did think of those'
things, he quickly returned to face the
"They're all right," he drawled..
"They've got plenty of fight. But'
they'll have to have more to lick In-
diana. And they'll get it too," he,
continued. "They'll get it if only the
rest of the students does."
"Enthusiasm is a contagious thing,"
remarked the man who brought grid-
iron fame to Michigan. "These boys,".
and he pointed to the Kipkemen, "live

Cheering news for students in the
College of Engineering who are wor-
rying about the possibilities of em-
ployment after graduation is revealed
in a survey made yesterday of the
number of jobs secured by students
graduating from the college last year.
The four largest departments of the
engineering college were selected as
representing an accurate crossection
of the general opportunities for em-
ployment available to graduating
students. Included in the survey
were the departments of electrical,
chemical, mechanical and civil en-
The electrical engineering depart-
ment reported that conditions this
year were approximately twice as fa-
vorable as last year. In October,
1934, only one-third of the students
graduating in the previous spring had
secured jobs. This year over two-
thirds of the graduating class have

placements are made in a wide va-
riety of research, sales and produc-
tion fields.
A corresponding increase in the
percentage of students securing em-
ployment was reported by the de-
partment of mechanical engineering.
Sixty of the eighty students gradu-
ating in June either have secured
employment or have not registered
with the department as needing work.
The trend of employment in the
mechanical engineering field during
the last year has shown a decided
swing back to the larger companies,
the department records reveal.
Whereas during the last five years a
large part of the graduating classes
has gone into concerns employing
only a few men, the class of 1935
found positions in such corporations
as Ingersoll-Rand and General Elec-
tric, the former of which have not
hired graduate engineering students
from this college since 1930.
