- Two intrepid Army airmen - cer-
tain that their ascent unofficially re-
corded at more than 14 miles into the
eerie stratosphere had eclipsed all
previous records - landed their
patched balloon safely near White
Lake, S. D., at 4:15 p.m., Central
Standard Time, today.
The flight began at 8 a.m., Central
Standard Time, and the balloon was
aloft eight hours and 13 minutes.

Stay Half-Hour At Peak
For a half hour, sealed in their
nine-foot metal prison dangling by
hempen threads from the world's
largest free balloon, the aviators made
rapid-fire scientific observations as
they rode at their peak altitude.
Above and beyond stretched a black

voice of Stevens broadcast from the
top rung of aviation's Jacob's ladder:
"We're starting down now."
Three Hours To Descend
To a world that was thrilled by the
uncanny demonstration, the captain
continued in a business-like manner:
"It will take about three hours to
get down. We're going to try to come
down very slowly."
Those who recalled the ill-starred
finale of the same pair's 1934 venture
into the stratosphere - when their
balloon ripped open 60,000 feet over
Nebraska and they were forced to bail
out in parachutes - crossed fingers.
It was apparent that the descent

was proceeding too rapidly. The
captains dropped some of their scien-
tific instruments. Anderson report-
ed they were having some "difficulty"
trying to brake the drop to 300 to 400
feet a minute because they were still
in the "iso-thermal" layer.

Pool in a number of swimming and
diving events, and this will begin at
8 p.m.
There will also be exhibitions in
bowling and in billiards. In bowling,
the annual match between represen-
tativesof the Union and a picked

Court Rulincrs
Show Victory,
Of 'New Deal'
Guffey Coal And Amended
Agricultural Adjustment
Acts Denied Review
WASHINGTON, Nov. 11.-(IP)-
The Government won two technical
victories in New Deal litigation to-
day when the Supreme Court de-
clined to review cases involving the
Guffey Coal and the amended Agri-
cultural Adjustment Acts.

Solicitor General Stanley Reed al-
so was given permission to argue the
validity of the Bankhead Cotton Con-
trol Law in a cast already pending
before the Court which may involve
the Constitutional question, even
though the Government is not a party
to the suit.
The New Deal and its disputed laws
were given attention as follows in "or-
ders" handed down by Chief Justice
1-The Court rejected the request
of the Washburn-Crosby Milling Co.
of Kansas for a review of a case in-
volving the constitutionality of pro-
cessing taxes levied since Congress
amended the AAA act to "strengthen"
it last August.
2-The Court refused to grant a
temporary injunction restraining the
Government from assessing the Guf-
fey Coal Law's so-called "penalty"
tax of 15 per cent against the Carter
Coal Co. of West Virginia. It also
rejected a request for a review of the
District of Columbia Supreme Court's

Italy Lodges
Protest With
Fifty Nations
League Receives Notices
Of Sanction Resentment
United States Told
Of Italian Attitude
Mussolini Parades Militia,
Warns World Of Italy's
ROME, Nov. 11. - (P) -Italy to-
night formally protested to half a
hundred nations the adoption of
sanctions by the League of Nations
against her.
This was disclosed a few hours af-
ter Premier Mussolini paraded part
of his 1,200,000 soldiers and warned
the world that Italy can take care of
herself in Europe as well as in Africa.
Separate notes were dispatched to
all governments participating in
sanctions, one week before they are
to go into effect.
(In Washington, Ambassador Ros-
so presented to Undersecretary of
State William Phillips, "for the in-
formation of the United States," the
text of the note dispatched by Italy
to sanctionist governments.)
A spokesman explained that al-
though the League itself voted sanc-
tions, it delegated their application
to a committee of representatives of
sovereign nations.
'Read About It In Papers'
Italy, he added, has received no
official notice that sanctions have
been invoked, but "we know they
have been, because we read about
them in newspapers and have ex-
perienced their effects."
He explained that the protests were
made directly to individual nations
rather than through the League be-
cause Italy regards the sanctions
,committee as outside the League A
text of the note may be made public
Italy also protested separately to
the Egyptian Government because of
its adherence to sanctions. Egypt is'
not a member of the League.
Informed circles regarded the pro-
test as a continuation of Italy's policy
of accepting sanctions "with sacri-
fices and discipline," but at the same
time contesting their legality.

"The forces you have seen this

Weaver Urges
Searching For
Facts Of Issue
Permanent Peace Council
Formed In Furtherance
Of Cause On Campus
A plea for sane and intelligent ac-
tion, and a departure from emotion-
alism, was made by Prof. Bennett
Weaver of the English department in
the opening talk of the peace sym-
posium held at 4:15 p.m. yesterday
in the Congregational Church.
Miss Margaret Norton, chairman
of the meeting, announced the in-
auguration of a permanent' t nfve.
sity Peace Council, which intends to
convene at regular intervals through-
out the year in the hope of further-
ing the cause of peace on the campus
Winifred Bell, '36, Prof. I. F. Sharf-
man of the economics department
and Mennon Williams, '36L, followed
Professor Weaver on the program.
Professor Weaver urged students to
search for the facts behind various
war and patriotic movements. He
cited data showing that United States
exports to the allied nations were at a
new high level during the period just
prior to America's entrance into the
World War, while exports to the pow-,
ers of central Europe were practically
Other indicting facts were brought
out to show that the United States
did not enter the last war to make
"the world safe for democracy but
rather to safeguard our economic in-
Professor Weaver mentioned sta-
tistics regarding American present
exporting activities. Despite theE
President's embargo, United States
exports in all commodities other than
actual fighting implements to Italy
have increased tremendously in the
last few months. Professor Weaver
again told the students of their re-
sponsibility of looking for the facts
on a rational basis. "Emotionalism
becomes a severe menace to peace,"
he said.
Winifred Bell, '36, mentioned the
apparent paradox that exists in the

minds of most people today - that of
condemning and at the same time
supporting war.

Understanding Of Islam Needed
To Understand Its Civilization

Prof. William H. Worrell of the
Oriental Languages and Literatures
department giving the first of a series
of lectures on Islamic civilization yes-
terday in Alumni Memorial Hall,
pointed out the importance of under-
standing the religion os Islam if one
is to understand its complex and
highly developed civilization.
"Islam," said Professor Worrell,"
is to the Islamic countries as Chris-
tianity is to the countries where its
influence has reached. It is a social
pattern of life.
"Originating in a desert land,
where frequent and drastic tempera-
ture changes are common, the re-
ligion of Islam reflects the harsh,
tense atmosphere of the country." he

Professor Worrell pointed out that
although Islam, Christianity and Ju-

has no temples or priests, emphasiz-

nection between God and the indi-
"It is of interest to note," he said,
"that in Mohammedanism, Jesus and
Moses are both major prophets, sec-

Two of the outstanding differences
between Christianity and Islam, Pro-
fessor Worrell stated, are that wine

The singers are traveling and sing-
