ADDIS ABABA, Oct. 28. - (P) -
Fascist Italy celebrated its thirteenth
birthday Monday with the news that
its marching legions in Northern
Ethiopia had won important new po-
sitions commanding the vital city of
Makale while the southern army ad-
vanced on a 400-mile front.
"On to Harar! was the Fascist cry,
as 13 years ago it had been "On to
Harar, the metropolis of Eastern
Ethiopia, is the objective of both the
northern and southern forces. With
Harar, they would cut Addis Ababa
and Central Ethiopia off from access
to the Red Sea; they would give Italy
a strip all along the eastern half of
Ethiopia, connecting Eritrea and
Italian Somaland.
In the south, the forces from So-'
maliland, according to dispatches re-
ceived in Djibouti, have crossed half
the Ogaden Desert. The Italians in
this sector, the Djibouti report said,
hold a strip of Ethiopian territory
more than400 miles in length.
Pave Way To Makale
In the north, the armies command-
ed by Gen. Emilio. De Bono literally
had paved thetway to Makale, gate-
way to the south, and capture of the
city apparently was only a matter of
the time it would take to extend
roads and communications.
An Exchange Telegraph dispatch
from Addis Ababa said the civilian
population of Makale had been or-
dered to evacate. Makale, the dis-
patch said, will not be defended, as
part of the Ethiopian strategy of
allowing the Italians to penetrate
farther into the mountains before
taking a stand.
DeBono's regiments Monday solid-
ified' a new and stronger line, well
beyond the Aduwa-Adigrat front, ac-
cording to a copyrighted dispatch
from Andrue Berding, Associated
Press correspondent with the army.
To Move Big Guns
DeBono, high commander of co-
lonial troops, moved promptly up to
the front, took formal possession of
the newly occupied territory and is-
sued orders for consolidation of the
new positions.
Over the rugged terrain behind the
front line the Engineers' Corps busied
itself constructing a road from En-
tiscio to the foremost part of the cen-
tral column. When this is finished
the big guns of the Italian artillery
will be rolled up.
Moving slowly and carefully, Gen.
Alessandro Pirzio-Biroli's central col-
umn pushed 12 zmiles through the
mountains shielding Makale to oc-
cupy the Feres Mai Valley.
GENEVA, Oct. 28. -- ({')-_ Austria
was regarded in League of Nations
circles tonight as the only possible
serious leak in an economic dam be-
ing built around Italy.
This gigantic barrier was rein-
forced today by the adherence of
Russia to an economic boycott.
Japan and Germany have indicat-
ed they would do nothing to embar-
rass the League's boycott. Switzer-
land will apply the arms embargo and
restrict her purchases of Italian
goods to an amount equaling the
value of her exports to Italy.
Despite Austria's opposition to
sanctions, an Austrian spokesman
said his country was not likely to sell
much to Italy because of Italy's prob-
able inability to pay.

eral impression is that the demands

Strike Sympathizers Fired
On; One Killed And Six
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Oct. 28. - (R)
- Six union miners were wounded
as a fusillade of shots were poured
into a caravan of strike sympathizers
moving onto coal mines operated by
non-union labor today. A seventh
was found dead near the scene.
St. Clair county officers, reinforced
by state highway patrolmen, threw
a heavy guard about the two mines -
the Margaret and the Acmar - to-
night to preserve order. An investi-
gation of the bloody clash was started
from four angles.
Governor Bibb Graves from Wash-
ington ordered the St. Clair County
grand jury to convene next Monday.
An inquest was held late today
over the body of an unidentified man
found in a ditch near the scene of
the daybreak clash.
Two national guard officers ac-
companied Sheriff Ab Crow to the
scene of the clash.
Robert R. Moore, state commis-
sioner of labor, also went to the
Chief deputy sheriff Charlie Mc-
Combs of Jefferson County said at
1:30 o'clock this morning he en-
deavored to dissuade the miners from
making a march on the Margaret and
Acmar mines. They had congregated
at Lewisburg to go to St. Clair Coun-
ty to organize the two mines, which
operate 'with non-union miners.

ones in the state that are not or-

Caused By Wait In The
PrintingOf Directories
To Use Automatic
Voting Machines
Literary College Elections
Will Begin At 4:15 After
Class Meeting
Because of a delay in the publica-
tion of the 1935-36 Student Directory,
senior class elections in all the schools
under the supervision of the Men's
Council will be postponed from Wed-
nesday, Oct. 30, to Wednesday, Nov.
6, William R. Dixon, '36, president of
the Council, announced yesterday.
Although there is a remote possi-
bility of another postponement, the
editor of the Directory, stated that
the handbook staff was virtually cer-
tain of publication prior to the new
election date, Nov. 6.
An innovation in the election pro-
cedure will be the use of a voting
machine by students in the literary
college. The machine, which is on
exhibit in the Union lobby, will be
donated for the election by the Auto-
matic Voting Machine Corporation of
Philadelphia. Tentative plans for the
use of similar machines in each of
the five other polling centers have
been discussed, Dixon stated, but no
definite action has been taken.
Council To Supervise
Actual supervision of the senior
elections will be vested in members
of the Men's Council and, if the need
arises, members of the Union Staff.
Practice this year will follow the cus-
tom of entrusting the literary col-
lege to five men. Three men, two
representing the Engineering Council,
will directthe election in the engi-
neering college., Elections in the
architectural college, the Music
School, the forestry school, and the
business administrat~rtr&ihol will be"
supervised .by a one-man board at
each polling place.
Members of the Men's Council from
whom Dixon may select election offi-
cials are: John McCarthy, '36, John
W. Strayer, '36, Nelson R. Droulard,
'36E, Charles Markham, '36, BAd.;
Thomas H. Kleene, '36, Wencel Neu-
man, '36, Sanford Ladd, '37, Robert
J. Buehler, '37E, George R. Williams,

Frank Fehsenfeld, '36, William Ren-
ner, '36, Richard Pollman, '36A, Ros-
coe Day, '36F&C, and Marshall Sleet,
Nominations First
Election activities in the literary
college will begin at 4:15 p.m. with a
short class meeting at which time
nominations will be made. With the
termination of nomination procedure
the actual voting will begin and will
continue until 5:15 p.m. In other di-
visions of the University participat-
ing in the elections the general pro
cess will follow these principles with
the exception that the time of vot-
ing will be determined by the ex-
pediency of the school's class schedule.

Late permissions will be granted
this year only for the four annual

lower class affairs, the Frosh Frolic

last until 2 a.m. with 2:30 permission

In previous years the ruling which
will be in effect for the Frosh Frolic
and Soph Prom has been extended to
include various other special func-
tions, such as the Panhellenic Ball,
the Crease Dance, the Slide Rule
Dance, the Architects' May Party, the
Interfraternity Ball, and others.
This year permissions for these
dances will be the regular 1:30 ruling
which is in force for all Friday night
"However, in view of the new rul-
ing of the University making Satur-
day classes compulsory for all stu-
dents," Miss Lloyd said, "it was felt
that the number of dances receiving

cut down to include only four class

Stern Authority's
'No' Spells Doom
For 8 O'Clockers
Another boon to society goes the
way of. all boons. The "8 O'Clock
Boys" are no more,
Charles Bleich and Murray Roth
conceived the novel idea of running
a book-delivery service. They were
going to pick up volumes due at the
libraries at 8 o'clock, and for the sum
of five cents per, they were to de-
liver their cargo at the library desks.
They had a Ford, a telephone and
an alarm clock. The only detail not
accounted for was authority, and it
was the only cog in their industrial
wheel which refused to bear up.
For it seems that Samuel W. Mc-
Allister, associate librarian, shared
enthusiasm with the Bleich-Roth
combine, but he couldn't see his
charges-- library books-lying all
night near doorways where they
would have to be left if the new bus-
iness men were to find them in the
So the bubble of premature success
is again burst. Bleich gazes at the
Ford each morning at 8, and Roth
stands beside him. The alarm clock
rings and the Ford runs downhill.
But the telephone is not silent for
them, for since they made their plan
public, the great American student

has been besieging them with calls.
So they wish the telephone would
keep whatever it has to say to itself,
because every time they lift the re-
ceiver it's a request to call and that's
just rubbing it in.

Freshman Club
To Meet Today
For Luncheon
First Of Two Groups That
Will Convene At Union;
Dean Bursley Sponser
The first of the two groups of
freshmen which make up the lunch-
eon club sponsored by Dean Joseph
E. Bursley will meet at 12:15 p.m.
today ┬░in the Union.
Dean Bursley stated that the fresh-
men were called together for the first
time last week and that plans for
the year were discussed. Because of
the great number of men selected
for the club, it will be necessary to
have two groups meeting at different
times. One will meet on Tuesday of
each week and the other will meet
on Wednesday.
Each separate group will elect its
own officers who will plan the pro-
grams for each gathering. In the
past it has been the custom to have
a short program consisting of an
outside speaker, and from time to
time other features are sponsored.
Started in 1930, the luncheon club
is sponsored in order to enable in-
coming students to become better ac-
quainted with members of their class.
Those in the club are selected in
order to give a "cross-section" of the
freshman class, Dean Bursley stated.f

Speaks At Annual.
Panhellenic Dinner
Suggests That Extra Hour
Be Taken In The Middle
Of The Week
Sorority women were severely crit-
icized last night by Dean Alice C.
Lloyd for failure to protect "the real
purpose of college life."
Miss Lloyd, speaking before 800
sorority women at the annual Pan-
hellenic banquet held at the League,
indicted them on two counts: first,
for opposing any changes in the pres-
ent 1:30 a.m. ruling on women's
hours for Friday nights; and second,
for maintaining a rushing system
which she described as "superficial
and nerve-wracking."
"I might as well admit frankly and
in open meeting," she stated, "that I
think your nearly unanimous vote to
continue the 1:30 a.m. hour for Fri-
day in spite of the new University
ruling on Saturday classes, is a mis-
Miss Lloyd expressed the opinion
that it would be more sensible to
take an extra hour in the middle of
the week, granting later permission
on Wednesdays, now that college
work is spread over another day, than
it is to crowd all social activities into
Friday, Saturday and Sunday; "more
sensible, that is, if we are protecting
the real purpose of college instead of
protecting the social pleasures of the
campus," she explained.
Rushing System 'Funny'
She characterized the present sys-
tem of women's rushing as a "funny,
artificial sort of business, and point-
ed out that of 426 women who re-
ceived preference slips, only 219
pledged houses. "Already, two weeks
after pledge day," she continued,
"there have been a number of broken
pledges. Surely this is a poor re-
turn for the effort you put into rush-
"In other years," she said, "sor-
orities, in voting on changes in rush-
ing rules during the second semester
have forgotten how hectic and trying
it all was, and have agreed to do it
all over again in much the same
way." She pointed out that this
year the women must consider
whether or not, "as intelligent uni-
versity women, you any longer have
the right to put the stamp of ap-
proval on a system which diverts 900
women from the main purpose of
college for the first two weeks of

out as well as it does," she stated.
and "alth, .gh I am quite aware of
the difficulties of second semester
rushing, surely we can work out some
plan which will be better for all con-
'Exclusive Boarding Houses'
Sororities can not long exist, she
old the women, as exclusive board-
ng-houses which sponsor a "partic-
ularly hectic and superficial method
of meetingand electing new mem-
bers. If you have any doubts about
ts superficiality," she said, "think
back to your 'hash' sessions of this
year, and call to mind some of the
reasons why you didn't take some
In spite of their faults, she ex-
pressed the belief that there is a real
place for sororities, but they should
foster "an intelligent, dignified so-
cial life to complement the intellec-
tual life of the college."
The other main speakers of th
evening were Prof. O. J. Campbell
of the English department, whose
subject was "When We Dead Awak-

NEW YORK, Oct. 28.-(AP)-Chan-'
cellor Harry Woodburn Chase of New
York University, in an examination
of academic thought and freedom
today, asserted that the hubbub and
b a l1 y h o o surrounding university
teaching trends had been "attended
by more heat than light."
"Pressure groups from the outside
are conducting campaigns in so
many directions," he observed, "that
universities on Mondays, Wednesdays
and Fridays find themselves pilloried
as parasites on the capitalistic order,
and on Tuesday, Thursdays and Sat-
urdays, as outposts of Moscow, while
on Sundays the decline of religion
with their student bodies is lament-
Chancellor Chase embodied his ob-
servations in the annual report to
the University Council.
"That examination of the truth to
which universities are committed,"
he declared, "arouses resistance alike
from communist and from super-pa-
triot as soon as it in any way tends
to disturb fixed patterns of propa-
The Chancellor observed that so-
cial sciences would "hardly be taught
at all" if the various prohibitionists
had their way; if the country pre-
vailed, he said, the result would be
"not education but bedlam.'
"Academic freedom," he declared,
"lays a responsibility on the instruc-
tor as well as on the university. That
responsibility is that he should ap-
proach his task not as a propagan-
dist, not as a partisan, but as a per-
son of open mind, regardful of facts,
whether or not they support precon-
ceived theories."
