League I
Supported
By Hitler
Germany Plans To Sto1
Speculation In Product!
To Belligerents
Action Is Serious
Blow To Mussolini
Deadlock In Anglo-Italian
Views Broken. As Nei
Conversations Open
GENEVA, Nov. 5-(')-The League
of Nations received surprising sup-
port today in its attempt to boycoti
warring Italy when Germany an-
nounced that it will permit no wai
profiteering whatever in the Reich.
An official League communique dis-
closed Adolf Hitler's decision to stamp
out all speculation in products which
Germany is convinced are destined
for either Italy or Ethiopia.
League officials and many delegates
sa: nthe Rich's action as a serious
blow to Mussolini. They interpreted
it as meaning the non-member Reich
will do nothing or permit nothing to
balk Geneva's efforts to bring quick
termination of the African war.
The communique said the Com-
mittee of Eighteen, through the
League secretariat, had been in-
formed that Germany has learned
certain persons were purchasing
goods in the Reich with the probable
intention of selling them to bellig-
erents at a large profit.
"The government therefore," said.
the communique, "proposes shortly to
issue a degree to render such specu-
lation impossible."
League officials believed the mer-
chandise was intended primarily for
Italy, presumably by transit across
Austria.
In London there was denial of re-
ports in P js.dip9mA tic cicle that
the Mediterranean problem has been
solved by Tuesday night's conversa-
tions at Rome.
In authoritative London quarters
it was said a previous deadlock in
Anglo-Italian views was broken by
the new conversation between Pre-
mier Mussolini and Sir Eric Drum-
mond, British ambassador to Rome.
Progress was made, it was asserted,
but no final conclusions were reached.
ETHIOPIANS REPEL ITALIANS
ADDIS ABABA, Nov. 6. - () - A
Government communique said today
Ethiopian troops repelled an Italian
scouting force trying to enter Makale
in the north, and related that two
Italian ariplanes were brought down
on the southern front.
Ten Italians were killed and four
taken prisoner in the fighting at'
Makale last night, the communique
said, while two Ethiopians were killed
and two wounded. The Italian sol-
diers were operating in advance of
the main force, seeking to reach
Makale as the climax of the second
big drive into northern Ethiopia.
. Emperor Haile Selassie promoted
the Mohammedan general Omar
Simer following upon reports that
Simer had led Ethiopian forces in a
fierce battle near Scillaye, in the
south, yesterday, killing several hun-
dred Italians and sustaining only two
score casualties to his own army.
Simer served with the Italians in
Somaliland, but after killing one of

his officers deserted to Ethiopia,
where he formed his own army of So-
malis. His surrender was one of
Italy's conditions for settlement of
the Wal-Wal border incident of last
December.

oosevelt Still Popular Despite
Election Returns, Says Brown

Republicans' Victories In
East Indicate A Growing
Opposition,_He Believes
By FRED WARNER NEAL
"Republican victories in eastern
elections Tuesday were interpreted
last night as "indications of a trend
of growing opposition to Roosevelt
and the New Deal," by Prof. Everett
S. Brown of the political science de-
partment.
"The G.O.P. victories undoubtedly
reflect a trend of opposition to the
New Deal that has been noticeable for
at least six months," Professor Brown
declared.
"But there were too much local
politics in the elections,," he con-
tinued, "to tell very much about the
national issues involved." Both sides
over-emphasized the importance of
the situation, he pointed out. "The
Republicans hail it as a complete
repudiation of the New Deal, while
the Democrats say it only concerns
local issues."
However, Professor Brown called
attention to the fact that Postmaster-
General James A. Farley, chief Dem-
ocratic tactician, made a personal
plea in New York state for a New Deal
vote. "In that sense it was a repudia-
tion," he said.
"On the other hand," he stated,
'only recently the farmers of the
Mid-west approved the corn-hog
program, showing that that part of

the New Deal program is favored in
that section."
"President Roosevelt is still very
popular," Professor Brown declared,
"and the trend of opposition will have
to go a long way yet before he will
be in the disfavor of the nation as a
whole." To back this up, he pointed
to the results of national polls, the
returns of which are favorable to the
Administration.
"And should the people decide
against him, who would the Republi-
can candidate be?" he asked. He
pointed out that "even the experts
can't figure the situation out." None
of the many of possible candidates
comes out in the open for fear of an-
tagonizing the others, he said.
Calling attention to the "wishful
thinking" of political writers, Profes-
sor Brown held that "it is impossible
to tell at the present time the Re-
publican set-up."

WASHINGTON, Nov. 6. - (P) -
National Republican and Democratic
leaders tonight found such divergent
meanings in Tuesday's elections as
claims that the New Deal had been
both repudiated and endorsed.
From G.O.P. spokesmen came con-
tentions that the election of Repub-
lican controlled assemblies in New
York and New Jersey indicated wan-
ing support for the Roosevelt ad-
ministration.
Promptly the Democrats responded
that, nevertheless, their candidates
polled a plurality of popular votes in
New York and northern New Jersey.
Thus, they said, the voters approved
the New Deal.

Petition For Readmission
Filed By Expelled Student
Against Rutihven, Regents

Six/ Houses Get
Graduates For
New Advisers
Free Tuition, Board And
Room Given To Resident
-Preceptors'
Six fraternities have accepted the
University's offer to waive tuition
requirements" for resident graduate
advisers, Joseph A. Bursley, dean of
students, announced yesterday. The
fraternities- are Delta Tau-Delta; A-
acia, Kappa Delta Rho, Sigma Phi
Epsilon, Phi Kappa Tau, and Phi
Beta Delta.
The plan was offered two years
ago, but no action was taken definite-
ly by an organization. The move-
ment for graduate "preceptor" has
gained much popularity in such in-
stitutions as the University of Iowa,
Rutgers, the University of Illinois,
Lafayette College, and the University
of Oklahoma, Dean Bursley stated.
Resident graduate advisers will be
allowed free tuition, on action of the
Board of Regents, and free room and
board by the fraternity houses in
which they reside, the Law School,
or the School of Business Administra-
tion.
Emphasizing the fact that the new
system is not permanent, Dean Burs-
ley stressed the fact that "this is
more or less of an experiment." The
future of the resident adviser plan
depends on the results of the 1935-
36 year, he stated
Metropolitan Club
Will BeOrganized
A Metropolitan Club, composed pri-
marily of students from New York
City, Brooklyn, and Northern New
Jersey, will hold its first meeting at
7:30 tonight in the League.
The purpose of the new club is "to
give the students from these cities
the advantages that might come from
knowing each other and to provide a
closer link with the University," offi-
cials said last night.
Prof. Shorey Peterson of the eco-!
nomics department will be the ad-
visor of the group and will aid in
the organization and determination
of a plan for coming activities. The
meeting tonight will be the reorgani-
zation of the club which was formerly
organized on the campus many years
ago.
Tentative plans for the semester
include a dance, group transportation
back home at Christmas, and other
group activities. Men and women,
are invited, it was announced.

Asks G.O.P. To
Be Liberal In
'36 Campaign
Sen. Vandenberg Suggests
'Lincoln Liberalism' In
Chicago Speech
CHICAGO, Nov. 6. - (P)--Senator
Arthur H. Vandenberg, of Michigan,
today urged the adoption of a "Lin-
coln Liberalisi" platform for the
1936 Republican campaign.
The senator, frequently mentioned
as a presidential candidate, in an
address prepared for delivery before
the Hamilton Club of Chicago, said
that the G.O.P. could win in 1936
if it were ready with "affirmative
plans" for the nation's troubles.
"That is what the country wants,"
he said.
"We must -and shall--produce
a definite and specific program out
of next June's Republican convention.
"I venture to believe that when the
time comes, the Republican party will
speak plainly, constructively, pro-
gressively - and victoriously."
A shotgun attack on everything the
Roosevelt administration has done
will not succeed, Senator Vandenberg
warned, adding that Republican votes
"including my own" have supported
some of the "New Deal" legislation.
He also frowned on any "mud bar-
rage" to "smear personalities."
Voters cannot be won back by a
standpat program, he said. "It can-
not be done by static viewpoints or
by stolid entrenchment against rea-
sonable evolution toward a larger and -
more effective social responsibility on
the part of government- the original
pattern for which was set by our own
Lincoln Liberalism."
A year from today, the senator
predicted, the headlines will "pro-
claim a new leader and certify thatj
the Republic is restored:"
R ef e r r i n g to the President's
"breathing spell" announcement, the
senator said:
"America wants more than an in-
terlude of free air. It wants a breath-j
ing spell for keeps."

Billy Sunday
Dies Suddenly
At Age Of 72
Noted Evangelist, Long An
Invalid, Is Stricken At
Brother-In-Law's Home
CHICAGO, Nov. 6. -(P) - William
A. (Billy) Sunday, 72, well-known
evangelist, died suddenly tonight of
angina pectoris at the home of a
brother-in-law here.}
His moans after he had gone up-
stairs attracted members of the
household who summoned medical
aid immediately. The noted evan-
gelist had been an invalid for some
time.
He had suffered a mild attack
about 2 p.m. today.
Sunday was born in Ames, Ia., Nov.
19, 1863. He was graduated from a
high school in Nevada, Ia., studied at,
Northwestern University in suburban
Evanston, Ill., and became a well-
known professional baseball player.1
Between 1883 and 1890 he played1
with Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Phila-
delphia in the National League as an
outfielder.-
Upon his retirement from profes-
sional baseball Sunday became inter-
ested in religious work and in 1891
was appointed an assistant secretary
of the Young Men's Christian Asso-
ciation in Chicago.-

Daniel Cohen Starts First
Attempt To Reenter By
Court Procedure
Damages Of $4,000
Are Cited In Case
P. H. O'Brien, Former
State Attorney General,
RepresentsPlaintiff
By MARSHAL D. SHULMAN
A petition for a writ of mandamus
against President Alexander G. Ruth-
yen, the Board of Regents, and each
of the members of the Board in-
dividually will be filed this morning
in the Federal District Court in De-
troit by Patrick H. O'Brien, former
state attorney general, counsel for
Daniel Cohen, '37E.
Cohen, one of four students asked
by President Ruthven during the
summer not to return this semester
because of alleged "interference with
the work of the University and with
the work of students," is asking the
courts to force the University either
to readmit him or to show just cause
why he should not be readmitted,
Cite Constitutional Charges
If the court grants the petition, the
University will have approximately
ten days in which to comply with the
order or to show cause before the
court why the students were not re-
admitted this fall.
Contractual and constitutional
charges are being cited by O'Brien in
the petition. He is charging that
the University violated an implied
contract which guarantees Cohen the
right of attendance here; that Chen
was deprived of property without due
process of law, holding that an educa-
tion should be considered as property;
and that Cohen was denied equal
rights according to others. Both
Federal and State constitutional
measures are involved in the charges.
Damages in excess of $4,000 were
cited by O'Brien in his petition, this
sum being set as the arbitrary value
of a college education. A declaration
of damages suffered by the plaintiff
in excess of $3,000 is required in order
to file suit in a Federal Court, but a
payment is not required 'in a writ of
mandamus case.
Is Test Case
O'Brien and Nicholas V. Olds, serv-
ing together as counsel for Cohen,
are acting at the request of the New
York office of the American Civil
Liberties Union. They are. instituting
the suit as a test case that will de-
termine the fae of two other former
studIents, William Fisch, '37, and Jo-
seph Feldman, '37, who together with
Cohen were asked not to return. The
fourth student, Leon Ovsiew, '37, was
readmitted by President Ruthven this
fall.
Cohen, a student of chemical en-
gineering, and the other three persons
asked not to return were active in
the National Student League last
year, and all four are from Eastern
states. It is charged by the American
Civil Liberties Union that their al-
leged virtual expulsion came as a re-
sult of their activities as members of
the organization which last year
brought John Strachey to the cam-
pus, sponsored an anti-war strike,
and a drive to have Willis Ward play
in the controverted Georgia Tech
game.
President Ruthven has asserted
that the issue is not one of free
speech, but of interferencewith the
proper functioning of the University,
and that the same action would have
been taken regardless of the political
creeds of the four students.

Rac hmaninoff Interviews Easily,
But Foolish Questions Bore Him'

By MARY JANE CLARK
Nearly overcome by the onslaught
of autograph hunters and anxious to
get into "my old brown suit," Sergeil
Rachmaninoff destroyed once and for
all the fantasy that he is the world's
most difficult artist to interview.
The mere suggestion which that he
might even be in that category
brought a broad smile to his face and
he submitted readily to all question-
ings. And there were lots of them
to try his patience as he scrawled a
hasty "Sergei Rachmaninoff" across
programs and magazines and sheet
music and still more programs.

"Here they do everything to make it

He doesn't know anything about
politics nor does he care to spend his
