Additional Gift By Baird
Will Make Carillon Here

Third Biggest In

World

U

Latest Donation $10,000;
Will Add Two Bells Tc
Collection Of 51
Gifts Will Complete
Chromatic Range
Only Riverside Church And
U. Of Chicago Carillons
Will Excel Group Here
By JOHN C. F. HEALEY
The third largest carillon in the
world will be located on the Univer-
sity of Michigan campus as the re-
sult of an additional gift of $10,000
from Charles Baird, '95L, announced
last night by President Ruthven.
Mr. Baird's first gift of $50,000 for
the construction of a carillon here
was announced in the latter part of
the summer, to which he added $4,-
000 on Oct. 1 for the purchase of an-
other bell. His latest gift, adding
two more bells, will bring the total
number of bells to 53 and will fill
out the only two gaps which would
have existed in the range if there
had been but 51. The carillon will
now have a complete chromatic range
of four and one-half octaves, and will
be surpassed in size only by those in
Riverside Church, New York, and at
the University of Chicago.
Weigh Ten Tcs
The two new bells, made possible
by the latest gift, will be the fourth
and sixth in the series and will weigh
six and four tons respectively.
As originally announced, the caril-
lon would have been the fifth in size,
but the second gift made it equal to
the third largest, and last night's
gift brings it to third place. The for-
mer third, now fourth largest, is lo-
cated at Lake Wales, Fla., in the Ed-
ward Bok tower.
President Ruthven announced the
gift while at the Charles Baird din-
ner last night at the Union, also
stating that the contracts were signed
yesterday and that present plans call
for completion and installation of the
carillon by Sept. 20, 1936. In dis-
cussing the gift he stated that Mr.
Baird's latest addition to the original
gift was of great significance and
will carry the fame of the Univer-
sity to even greater distances.
The bells, which will have a total
weight of 60 tons, will be cast by John
Taylor Co., Loughborough, England,
and will be the largest they have ever
cast even though they have been in
business continuously for 200 years.
50 Tons Of Framework
In addition to the weight of the
bells, the framework will weigh over
50 tons more. The largest of the bells
will weigh over 12 tons and have a
pitch of low E-flat, while the smallest
will weigh about 12 pounds and have
a pitch of A-flat, four and one-half
octaves higher than the largest bell.
The University's carillon will be
larger than any in Europe, even
though it is third in size in this
country, as all the large sets of bells
are located in the United States.
There are some in Europe that are
more than 350 years old but none
that approach the American sets in
size.
Prof. Earl V. Moore, musical di-
rector of the School of Music, said of
the gift that "Michigan's carillon
will be the most significant in any
American university except that at
the University of Chicago." He was
also lavish in his praise of Mr. Baird
and his estimation of the great musi-
cal value of the gift.
The tower which will be built to
hold the carillon will contain a clock
which will strike the Westminster
chimes as they are now struck by the
old clock in the engineering shops.
The latter will be stopped when the
new installation is made.

Michigan Union Gets Portrait Of Baird

Expect Huge
Turnout For
Pep Meeting
J. Fred Lawton, '11, 'Pep)
Master' ; Pretinan To Be
Introduced
Quartet To Render
Lawton's New Song
Baird And Fitzpatrick Are
Scheduled To Appear At
Hill Auditorium
A mass turnout of a great part of
the student body and other support-
ers of the Wolverine football team
was expected at the pep-meeting to be
held at 8 p.m. tonight in Hill Audi-
torium, as last minute additions to
the program were announced last
night by William R. Dixon, '36, presi-
dent of the Men's Council.
Horace Prettiman, who played
football for Michigan from 1881 to
1885, and Walker Bennett, who was
captain of the Wolverine team when
it played at Chicago in 1898, will be
introduced to the audience at the
mass meeting by Fielding H. Yost,
director of athletics. It was the play
of the Michigan team at Chicago on
that occasion that inspired the writ-
ing of the "Victors" by Louis Eibel
and Earl V. Moore.
Lawton Principal Speaker
The keynote speaker and general
"pep-master" for the program will be
J. Fred Lawton, '11, author of the
lyrics for "Varsity," who will present
his new song, "It's a Great Big Meech-
igan Day." The new march will be
sung for the first time in Ann Arbor
by a quartet led by Oswald Fleumer,
of Pontiac, author of the music for
the song.
Also featured on the program will
be Charles Baird, '95L, the Universi-
ty's first athletic directors and one
of its most loyal alumni. Still a third
speaker will be Keene Fitzpatrick,
veteran track coach and trainer, who
before his term at Princeton, where
he recently retired, coached many
of Michigan's track squade to vic-
tories and championships.
Urge Attendance
Mr. Yost joined with Dixon in
asking that all students who can
possibly attend the rally tonight do
so, with the hope that the Wolverine
team may go into action in the
Homecoming game with Pennsylvania
Saturday afternoon feeling behind
them the unified support of the
student body.
"I expect to see a capacity crowd
there," Mr. Yost predicted last night.
"The place ought to be packed to the.
rafters."
The Varsity R.O.T.C. Band and
the Glee Club will cooperate with the
quartet from Pontiac under Mr.
Fluemer in furnishing the musical
sections of the program, and the
cheer-leaders, according to Dixon,
"will be up in front doing their
darndest to get some good yells out
of the crowd."
NYA WORKING HOURS
Thirty hours per month is not the
maximum number for student NYA
workers, it was announced last night
in correction of The Daily's story
yesterday.
The ruling should have been to the
effect that 30 hours are the maximum'
number that a person may work in
any one week, and 8 hours the num-
ber in any day.

At Saturday's Game
Plans which have been termed "the
most elaborate in recent years" have
been made for the 1935 annual
Homecoming, the celebration of
which will begin tonight with the
pep meeting.
According to William R. Dixon, '36,
president of the Men's Council, most
of the fraternities have decided to
decorate their houses, and a cup do-
nated by Goldman Brothers will be
presented to the house having the
best decorations in the opinion of
the judging committee.
Penn Band Expected
The 96-piece Pennsylvania band,
which is well-known throughout the
East for its marching prowess, will be
met by the Michigan Band upon its
arrival at the Michigan Central Sta-
ion tomorrow morning. A parade
will be formed by the two bands, and
it is expected that many students will
follow behind the "Fighting Hun-
ired" to dreet the Penn band, with
its colorful uniforms of red and blue.
The Union is offering several fea-
tures especially for the homecoming.
A ticket exchange servic& whereby
it will be possible to exchange and
leave tickets for sale will be main-
tained. A campus guide service to
acquaint visitors with the University
campus will also be sponsored, Union
men stated. Sophomore committee-
men will be present in the lobby
tomorrow to conduct visitors on tours
of inspection of the Union building.
60,000 To See Game
Nearly 60,000 spectators are ex-
pected to attend the Homecoming
game tomorrow, officials at the Ath-
letic Association's ticket office an-
nounced. The two bands will lead
the parade to the Stadium about 1:30
p.m., and immediately before the
start of the game the two bands will
march and play in mass formation
on the playing field.
Dixon announced last night that
because of the fact that the Penn
band had decided to come to Ann
Arbor, the Varsity Glee Club would
not sing between the halves.

Day Of Session
'Bridgman Gives Opening
Speech; Dr. McEachern
Leads Discussion
The first afternoon session of the
Sixth Annual Parent Education In-
stitute, sponsored by the University,
in cooperation with the Michigan
Congress of Parents and Teachers,
was opened yesterday at the Uni-
versity High School.

Ralph Bridgman, of the National
Council of Parent Education, deliv-
ered the opening address, outlining
the purpose and method of the Insti-
tute. At the conclusion of his talk,
a group of nine round tables were
held on vocational and child-train-
ing problems.
Dr. Thomas McEachern, of Ann
Arbor, and formerly of the Cornell
University Hospital, was the speaker
at the round table on "The Radio
and the Movies." He discussed the
intensive research work which he has
done on the effect of typical movies
and radio programs upon the child.
"The majority of children," he
said, "attend movies twice a week,
and of these, 25 per cent of the boys

Fitzpatrick, Yost To Attend
Tomorrow's Gathering
Of Alumni AtUnveiling
By FRED WARNER NEAL
It will be almost like old times at
the Union tomorrow morning --al-
most as it used to be back in the
1900's when Charlie Baird was ath-
letic director, Fielding H. Yost was
the famous hurry-up coach and
Keene Fitzpatrick the beloved trainer.
For they'll all be there at 11 a.m.
tomorrow when Hugh White of
Scarsdale, N.Y., in 1901 captain of
Yost's first great team, presents on
behalf of the "M" clubs a life-sized
portrait'of Mir Baird, to be hung in
the Union along side those of Yost
and Fitzpatrick. All three paintings
were done by the noted artist Ray
Gamble.
Alumni Migration Begins
The hundreds of alumni from all
over the country who have been pour-
ing into Ann Arbor since yesterday
will be present as the Varsity R.O.T.C.
Band starts the ceremony off with
"The Victors." They'll be there to
see two of the University's most fa-
mous figures in the field of sport:
Baird, who made the Michigan ath-
letic plant what it is today; and Yost,
who made Michigan teams "The
Champions of the West."
Ever since Mr. Baird presented the
University with the two portraits of
Yost and Fitzpatrick early this fall,
the "M" Clubs have been planning
this gesture toward their first ath-
letic director. Then when the Kan-
sas City, Mo., attorney, recently gave
the University more than $50.000 for
a carillon, their efforts to secure the
funds were doubled, and the money
came pouring into the office of Homer
Heath, treasurer, from all over the
land.
Heath Lauds Baird
As Mr. Heath sees it, "this senti-
ment is hoped to show to a slight
degree our appreciation for Mr. Baird.

Earthquake Shock
Felt At 1:06 A. M.;
State And East Hit
Detroit And Eastern Seaboard
Rocked By Nocturnal Jarring
Severe earthquake shocks reaching from Ontario to Baltimore and
Washington, D. C., and from the Atlantic Ocean to Michigan were felt
in Ann Arbor at 1:06 a.m. this morning, registering so strongly on the
seismograph in the University observatory that the needle was dislodged
from its track at the time of the quake, and would, according to atten-
dants, take some time to come back to its normal position.
According to Prof. Dean B. McLaughlin of the astronomy depart-
ment, who was on the second floor of the observatory at 'the time of the
shock, the disturbance was severe enough to rattle all the windows in the
building. It was also felt by patients in University Hospital, and The
Daily received many phone calls from students near the campus who had
felt the shock.
Asked for the results recorded on the seismograph track, Professor
McLaughlin stated: "The needle had been moved considerably to one
side at the time of the quake, and may not have left a perfect record
thereafter." He pointed out that no actual findings could be determined
until the arrival of Miss Mary Lindsey, the seismological assistant, later

Nazis Jail Jwo Melt
For Toning In Moscow
BERLIN, Oct. 31. - U -Seven
prison sentences today brought home
to Germans the danger that lurks in
the loud speaker when it's tuned in
on Moscow.
Two men in Wilhelmshaven were
sentenced to four years in prison and
five years loss of citizenship for dis-
cussing politic., wnile listening to a
Moscow radio broadcast, and five
friends who listened, too, received
lesser terms.
All seven were charged with "plot-
ting high treason." Some, authori-
ties said, were Communists.

Daily, Observatory
Phones Hum After
Ann Arbor }Shock
Three phone lines, the editorial
and business lines of The Daily and
the adjacent Gargoyle phone, rang
merrily, one after the other, and con-
tinuously from about 1:20 a.m. on
this morning.
First it was a stray student here
and there who had felt the floor of.
his room shake, somewhere in the
vicinity of East Catherine and East
Ann Streets. Then gradually, as the
rumours spread, the anxious, the
curious, and the scientific question-
ers kept the staff, supposedly hard
at work tearing down the paper, then
almost on the press, busily engaged in
answering phone calls
About ten calls came through be-
fore The Daily was able to contact
the observatory-the waiting list, the
University operator informed us, was
already three deep on the switch-
board.
Castle Offers
'Control' For
State Matters
'Automatic Sanctions' Are
Cited As Best Influence
On Belligerents.
A foreign policy based on "auto-
matic sanctions" against all belliger-
ent nations was advocated last night
by William R. Castle, former under-
secretary of state, in the first lec-
ture of the 1935-36 Oratorical As-
sociation series.
Mr. Castle said this country's re-
cently-passed neutrality legislation
was a "childish device for drawing
into itself," and pointed out diplo-'
matic complications in the event of
the spread of hostilities to other na-
tions than Italy and Ethiopia.
The Roosevelt administration's
foreign policy in Cuba, Latin Amer-
ica and China was also criticized
by the noted diplomat, his only com-
mendation for the New Deal being an
approval of its recognition of Russia.
The Treaty of Montevideo, he de-
clared, was signed "in utter contempt
of our own rights," and must sooner
or later be broken, thus increasing
bad feeling between the United States
and its southern neighbors.
Mr. Castle said that the Hoover
administration had already estab-
lished friendly relations with the
Latin-American countries, and that
the New Deal's friendly gesture in
the form of the treaty, with its
"rather absurd promises," was un-
necessary.

this morning.
According to the Associated Press
offices in Detroit, the seismograph
here is the only instrument of its
kind in the state of Michigan. While
Professor McLaughlin believed the
severity of the shock here would in-
dicate a nearness to the center of
disturbance, he pointed out that the
SEISMOGRAPH READINGS
"The preliminary tremors be-
gan at 1:05.0 and became sud--
denly stronger at 1:06.15," Pro-
fessor McLaughlin reported after
later readings of the record. "The
main shock, which was evidently
what everybody felt, came at
1:06.45. After that the recording
pen continued to vibrate strongly
until 1:08.30, with minor tremors
of decreasing intensity until after
1:30, but probably not lasting
after 1:50."
,enter could be determined only by
-orrelating the findings of three ob-
serving stations.
No damage was reported in Ann
Arbor at either the police, fire, or
Sheriff's departments.
"One interesting point in regard
;o the earthquake," Professor Mc-
uaughlin added, "was that while I
vas on the second floor and Max-
,ell (Prof. Allen D. Maxwell of the
astronomy department) was on the
irst, nearer to the seismograph in
he basement, I felt the quake dis-
~inctly, whereas Maxwell did not
iotice it. That, of course, is ex-
plained by the fact that the top of a
wilding is more liable to react to
such shocks than the foundation."
NEW YORK, Nov. 1. -- (Friday) -
. - An earthquake which rocked
buildings and alarmed sleeping house-
nolders was felt from Canada to
Washington along the eastern sea-
board early this morning.
First reports told of the collapse of
a house at Syracuse, N. Y. In Buf-
falo the tremor lasted four minutes.
The Rev. J. J. Lynch, seismologist
of Fordham University, said the
quakes probably were "surface dis-
turbances and harmless,"
Similar shocks were recorded three
years ago, he said, but the University
at present does not have in operation
a short wave seismograph which
would record such a disturbance.
DETROIT, Nov. 1.- (Friday)-44P)
A series of earth tremors shook De-
troit shortly after 1:00 a.m. Tele-
phone calls to newspapers at Grand
Rapids, Escanaba, and Marquette in-
dicated the shock was felt as far west
as Lake Michigan and into the Upper
Peninsula.
At Escanaba, a telephone operator
said the tremor shook her from her
chair at a switchboard. It was felt
strongly enough at Marquette that
members of a family sleeping on a
second floor were awakened.

World Peace Demands End Of
I 'Mush' Patriotism, Castle Avers

By RALPH W. HURD
Cultured in accent, deliberate in
speech, scholarly in apearance, con-
firmed in his beliefs that internation-
al relations should be devoid of all
sentimentality and patriotic selfish-
ness, William R. Castle discussed for-
eign and diplomatic problems as they
must be faced by college students in
an interview with the Daily yesterday.
If there is any one rule which
should be followed by students in
their attitude toward problems of

power, the type that takes it for
granted that the United States under
the control of other people beside
themselves is never right in its in-
ternational relations."
Another form of sentimentality
that the student should guard against,
Castle pointed out, is the kind that
causes people to believe one country
is "all right," and the other "all
wrong" when two belligerents are at
war. Ethiopia is not "all right" in
present conflict with Italy, nor was
