Pennsylvania Tilt
Fixed By Council
For Homecoming

First Meeting Of Men's
Council Decides Date;
Pots Will Be Worn
Freshman Meeting
To Be Announced
Plan Sendoff For Varsity
At 5 P. M. Tomorrow At
Railroad Depot
The week end of the Pennsylvania
game, Nov. 2, was selected as the date
for Homecoming week-end this year
at the first meeting of the Men's
Council this year, William R. Dixon,
'36, president, reported last night.
Other matters discussed at the meet-
ing were plans for a pep-meeting be-
fore the departure of the team for
Wisconsin this week, class elections
to be held in the near future, and
class games.
The send-off pep-meeting for the
Varsity will be held at 5 p.m. Thurs-
day at the Michigan Central depot
with the Varsity Band present. Ac-
cording to present plans, Coach Har-
ry G. Kipke and Captain Bill Ren-
ner will speak during the meeting,
before the team entrains for Madi-
son for its next game.
Fall Games Nov. 2
Saturday morning, Nov. 2, was ten-
tatively selected by the Council as a
date for Fall games. Dixon an-
nounced that he would call a mass
meeting of the freshman class for
4:15 p.m. Thursday in the Union
Ballroom to determine their feelings
and their plans for the games. The
difficulty of the conflict with Sat-
urday classes in the Literary College
remains to be discussed, Dixon stat-
Meeting at the Union, the Council
first heard Dixon's report on the
moveraent to, restore campus tradi-
tions begun with the return of fresh-
man pots. He estimated that some
500 freshmen are now wearing their
class emblem, and expressed hopes
that through the Interfraternity
Council the various fraternities would
be requested to have their pledge
groups wear pots as a class.
Committee Is Appointed
A committee consisting of Wencel
A. Neumann, '36, John C. McCarthy,
'36, and Dixon was appointed by the
Council to formulate plans for the 20
elections to be held in the six schools
and colleges under the jurisdiction
of the Council.Dixon indicated that,
in the Council's opinion, the return
to the system of identification cards
would render unnecessary last year's
"sterilization" of campus politics un-
der the now defunct Undergraduate
Council's supervision.
A motion was unanimously adopted
to the effect that classes in schools
and colleges not at present under the
jurisdiction of the Council could se-
cure the supervision of the Council
for their elections through petition
by 25 or more members of the class.
Dixon announced that the Law
School, seniors, voting today, had
already asked and been granted that
He announced that a meeting of
the committee on elections would be
held today or tomorrow, and that an
informal canvas of the entire Council
would be held by telephone when the
plans are completed, but that no
formal meeting would be called to se-
cure the organization's approval.
'Ensian Campus Sale
Will Be Opened Today
Campus sale of subscriptions to the
1936 Michiganensian will be held to-
day and tomorrow, according to Rob-
ert O. Thomas, '36, 'Ensian business
manager. The annual yearbook is

departing from the :usual procedure
in the forthcoming issue, which will
be distributed next June, in that it
will devote separate sections to each
school in the University.
The current price of the Michigan-
ensian will be $4 for full payment,
and $1 for part payment, which may
be applied at any time to the pur-
chase of the yearbook. The $4.00
price will remain until December,
when the full payment will be raised
to $5.

Chorines Smarter
Than College Men,
Psychologist Says
KANSAS CITY, Oct 15. - P) -
Many a glamorous chorus girl has
a higher intelligence quotient than
the average college graduate, Albert
Edward Wiggam, psychologist, said
today - but she doesn't have enough
"As a result," Wiggam asserted
with furled brow, "this country is
losing in brains and beauty.
"The very gorgeous young women
who should be producing beautiful,
intelligent children, haven't time for
motherhood because they are in de-
mand at night clubs, before the movie
camera and on the stage."
It was recalled that brains and
beauty were once believed to mix
about as well as water and gasoline.
There was that old saying, "beautiful,
but dumb."
Psychologist Wiggam snorted:
"Look," he laid, shuffling his files,
"look here." A checkup at once dis-
closed that Marian Gillon, who ap-
peared in the 'Countess Maritza,' had
an intelligence quotient of 159 in con-
trast with 128 for the average college
British Jurist
Is To Discuss
Carr To Talk Tomorrow
On Issuing Of Roosevelt
Executive Orders
Dr. Cecil Thomas Carr, interna-
tionally noted British jurist, who has
been called to Washington to assist
in publication of President Roose-
velt's executive orders, will speak at a
luncheon tomorrow in the Union.
Dr. Carr is expected to give his
views on the recent trend in this
country, initiated by the Roosevelt
administration, of issuing executive
orders to fill in skeleton legislative
Members of the political science
department and Law School fac-
ulties, as well as Harold M. Smith,
secretary of the Michigan Municipal
League, will be present.
Dr. Carr's opinions on executive or-
ders were quoted last year in a deci-
sion rendered by the Supreme Court
of the United States. His works on
that subject were also referred to by
the judiciary committee of the House
of Representatives when it pointed
out that 67 executive orders had been
issued by President Roosevelt during
the first 15 months of his adminis-
tration, constituting a greater num-
ber than the total of those issued in
the preceding four years.,
Shortly after that, a court order
decreed the publication of all execu-
tive orders, and it is for that work
that Dr. Carr was called to Washing-
Dr. Carr received his L.L.D. degree
from Trinity College, Cambridge Uni-
versity, and since 1823 has edited
the oplicial "Revised Statutes and
Statutory Rules" for Great Britain.
The son of Sir Thomas Carr, he
served in the English army in India
and is a member of the executive
committee of the Society of Com-
parative Legislation. He is the au-
thor of seven books and many articles
on government.
Dr. Carr recently spoke at Harvard,
Yale and other great Eastern Uni-
versities. He is being brought to the
University through Mr. Smith, who
secured him while in the east recent-

Council Postpones
Senior Elections
A change in plans was agreed upon
last night in the first meeting of the
Men's Council in regard to senior
elections. There has been a definite
postponement, due to a change in
sentiment by the representatives of
the Council.
Until late last night there was to
be an election of seniors because of
a petition filed with the Council to
the effect that the election should be

Among Other Speakers
At Convention
The third day of the sessions of
the Adult Education Institute, which
is being held today at the League in
conjunction with the annual conven-
tion of the State Federation of Wom-
en's clubs will feature lectures by
Prof. Jesse S. Reeves of the political
science department, Prof. Ernest F.
Barker of the physics department,
Professor Shirley Allen of the for-
estry school, and Mrs. W. D. Hen-
Professor Reeves will speak on
"Our Changing Responsibilities in
the Far East," Professor Barker on
"What Heavy Water is and What
It Does," and Professor Allen will dis-
cuss "Michigan Youth in the CCC
Camps." Mrs. Henderson's topic will
be "The Best Plays of the Year." A
class in parliamentary law will be
conducted by Mrs. Emma Fox of De-
troit to open the sessions.
In delivering the second in the
series of lectures on international re-
lations, Prof. Lawrence Preuss of the
political science department, whose
topic was "The Neutrality Policy of
the United States," explained that
the present war between Ethiopia and
Italy and the voting of sanctions by
the League of Nations call for a "re-
consideration" of the American for-
eign policy.
Cites Kellogg Pact
"The United States, in signing the
Kellogg- riand pact for the renun-
ciationof war as an instrument of
national policy, has subscribed to the.
underlying conception of the League
that a war between any states is a
matter of concern to all ates," Pro-
fessor Preuss said. "Our position as
a world power prevents our remaining
indifferent to wars in any part of the
world, that may develop into wide-
spread hostilities which might pos-
sibly involve even the United States."
Because the United States has on
occasions supported the peace-mak-
ing efforts of the League by inde-
pendent diplomatic action, this coun-
try has incurred resentment which
it would have been spared had it been
a member of the League, he pointed
out. "We have two clear alterna-
tives before us," he continued, "one,
a strict neutrality, based upon com-
plete impartiality; or two, member-
ship in the international organiza-
tion, the League, which was created!
to take collective action for the main-
tenance of peace."
Through its present policy the
United States is risking the danger
of conflict through action for which
it alone takes responsibility, Profes-
sor Preuss stated, while at the same
time the uncertainty of its position
tends to weaken the strength of the
Professor Earnest F. Barker of the
physics department opened the series
of addresses on modern science with
a lecture on "Modern Conceptions of
the Atom," at 9:30 a.m. Character-
izing the study of the atom as "the

key to the behavior of our inanimate
universe," Professor Barker traced
the history of scientific experiments
with the atom.

this field, he explained the discov-
ery of radioactivity and the work of

Over Ethiopia As Britain
Stages Huge Maneuvers

English Naval Moves Off
Egyptian Shores Taken
As WarningTo Italy

Observers Indicate Fleet
Will Be Kept Near Suez
For Indefinite Period
ALEXANDRIA, Egypt, Oct. 15.-(P)
- The British Navy, staging the big-
gest maneuvers ever held off the
shores of this ancient kingdom,'
served tacit notice on Italy today that
if Mussolini has any designs on Egypt,+
it is the British empire's might he
will have to face.
With the Egyptian Parliament and
Constitution suspended, the British
Navy, in effect, has taken over the
rule of Egypt, and Admiral Sir Wil-
liam Fisher has become not only the
Country's military dictator but di-
rector of its political destinies as well.
The British naval chief has full+
rein in arranging defense measures
and civic authorities have recognized+
the necessity of heeding his recom-
mendations in regard to all affairs
of Government.
Admiral Fisher took out the British
capital ships for the first time today'
to participate in combined maneuvers
with smaller craft.
Mass At Key Location
the maneuvers were held off the
coast between Alexandria and Port
Said, at the north end of the Suez
Canal, in an area which navalex-
perts said would be Italy's first ob-
jective in event of closing of the
It was believed the men-of-war
would put back into port Friday, but
this apparently was based only on
the fact that previous smaller weekly
maneuvers had always ended that
Foreign military quarters in Lon-
don expressed the belief that the fleet
would be kept indefinitely in the
vicinity of Suez and Gibraltar, fol-
lowing unexplained cancellation of'
the cruise to Greek Waters.
The British Government has de-'
clined to conform to suggestions in
the French press that the fleet be+
withdrawn from the Mediterranean
and similar requests from Italy. Lon-
don observers said there was no rea-
son why almost the whole fleet
should not remain in the Mediterran-
ean as long as Europe is quiet.
Mediterranean Well Protected
London reports said that ships are
being moved from the Mediterranean
into the Red Sea and others from
the home fleet are going to the Medi-
terranean. A speech by Neville Cham-
berlain, chancellor of the exchequer,
was interpreted as meaning the grand
fleet will not be moved out of the
Mediterranean for a long time.
Although the Egyptian Govern-
ment accepted Britain's seizure of
control with little ado, the politicians
and press, in some cases reflecting
apparent Italian influence, intensified
their violent protests against being
tied to Great Britain's apron strings.

Declaring that the "obsolete and
blood-stained instrument" of war.
cannot cure the world's economic ills
Secretary of State Hull today advo-
cated a threefold international effort
for peace and prosperity.
He called for "simultaneous action
of many countries" for
1. A "vigorous rebuilding of inter-
national trade."
2. A "gradual restoration of inter-
national monetary stability."
3. An international agreement
"upon the organization and principles
which will assure that all important
raw material will become available on
reasonable terms wherever they are
Hull's speech, regarded as of much
significancewas delivered by radio
on the program of the New York Her-
ald Tribune's annual forum on cur-
rent affairs.
No Nation Mentioned
His declaration that war cannot
achieve the hopes of peoples for a
"less difficult and more rewarding"
destiny comes at a time when Italian
spokesmen are declaring that Italy's
need for expansion is one justifica-
tion for the Ethiopian campaign.
Only last night Ambassador Au-
gusto Rosso declared at Boston that
expansidn is "an actual and physical
need of the Italian nation, and a
need which Mussolini is trying to sat-
isfy in order to keep the living stand-
ard of the Italian people at least at
its present level; in order to prevent
the restless forces of anarchy and
Bolshevism exploiting the hardships
of an economic life which only the
sound discipline of Fascism has been
able to make endurable." He also

ADDIS ABABA, Oct. 15. - (P) -
Italian bombing planes swooped
over strategic sections, of Ethiopia
today while Emperor Haile Selassie
rallied his wild tribesmen to the de-
fense of the empire.
Sporadic fighting continued in the
southern sector but the main bodies
of 220,000 Ethiopian troops and 60,-
000 Italians apparently had not yet
come together.
While the huge army of Ethiopians
under Ras Desta Demtu was bearing
down on the invaders' left flank an-
other force of 200,000 strong was en-
trenched behind Jijiga and before
Harar. A terrific clash was expected
to come momentarily.
Bombs were dropped by Fascist
planes on Alaji, near Makale, and on
troops at Makale, 60 miles south of
Aduwa, an official communique said.
It asserted that there wre no cas-
Supply Dump Blown Up
Reuters said Count Galeazzo Ciano,
Premier Mussolini's son-in-law, and
two other pilots were reported to have
blown up an ammunition dump south
of Makale, drawing fire from Ethi-
opian riflemen, who, however, failed
to hit any of the three planes.
Ethiopians also announced that
scouting planes had passed over Gota,
on the railroad to Djibouti, French
Somaliland, between Diredawa and
Awash. Still other of Mussolini's
planes roared low over Harar and
Diredawa, chief cities on the railroad,
and nearly the entire populace, badly
frightened, fled intothe hils.
This aerial activity indicated the
Italians were preparing to strike at
the strategic town of Makale and at
tihe railroad, Ethiopia's only outlet
to the sea.
There were new reports that Ethi-
opians are meeting with success in
flanking movements. A dispatch
from Djibouti said that a band of
warriors had penetrated into Italian
Eritrea, north of French Somaliland,
cutting off several Italian troops from
their base.
The Italians reported thus isolated
were those who had advanced into
the Ethiopian desert south of Mt.
Mussa Ali.
Ship 30,000 Rifles
A shipment of 30,000 foreign rifles
arrived at Jijiga Tuesday following
upon the action of the League of
Nations in lifting an arms embargo
against Ethiopia.
While the Italian planes struck
fear in the border sections, Haile Se-
lassie sent out huge contingents of
warriors to key points to meet ex-
pected Italian attacks from both the
north and the south.
More than 150,000 fresh troops, it
was said in official Addis Ababa
circles, will pass through the capital
this week, en route to the fronts, for
review by the emperor.
Haile Selassie Gpgsa, northern
chieftain and son-in-law of the Em-
peror, who has taken his northern
tribe over to the Italian cause, has
been condemned as a traitor. Ethi-
opianrs charged that Mussolini is
spending huge sums in attempts to
bribe Ethiopian chieftains.
The Reuters News Agency reported
that Italian military headquarters
at Aduwa had received accounts of
a revolt in Gojom province.
ROME, Oct. 15.--(A') -Italian
government spokesmen said tonight
Italy would keep her course in Africa
regardless of League of Nations sanc-
tions and would fight "even a Euro-
pean war is compelled."
The declaration - in which the
spokesman, however, declined to pre-
dict war in Europe - came after a
day in which the holy city of Aksum,
called the spiritual rock of the Ethi-
opian empire, was occupied peaceful-
ly by the second Italian army corps
under Gen. Pietro Maravigna, and in
which Italian war correspondents in
