dGov. Herring Plans
To Pardon Himself
For Porcine Wager
ST. PAUL, Minn., Nov. 13. - (') -
The pig that made front pages-as
the payment of gubernatorial wagers
- may cause Gov. Clyde L. Herring,
of Iowa, to write out a pardon for
himself, he said tonight.
The Governor refused to become
worried, however, when informed he
y had been charged with gambling in
Iowa as a result of the bet he made
fwith Gov. Floyd B. Olson of Minne-
t sota on the outcome of the Iowa-
Minnesota football game last Satur-
"It looks as if I might have to
write out a pardon for myself when
I get home tomorrow," he laughed.
"But if this reported charge looks
like a big legal job, I'll invite Gover-
nor Olson in for consultation."
Governor Herring earlier today
personally paid off the bet he lost,
herding a prize 265-pound Iowa pig,
"Big Boy Floyd of Rosedale," into the
Minnesota capital.
'House Placed
On Probation
By Committee
Interfraternity C o u n c i l
Punishes For Infraction
Of Initiation Rules
A fraternity, the identity of which
was not disclosed, was placed on so-
cial probation until Feb. 1 and or-
dered not to hold an initiation until
after spring vacation for infraction
of the Interfraternity Council initia-
tion rules, it was announced last night
by George R. Williams, '36, president.
of the council.
Failure of the fraternity to comply
with that section of the rules which
requires a house to receive permis-
sion to hold an initiation from the
office of the Dean of Students was
the basis of the disciplinary measures
laid down by the executive committee
of the council, Williams said.
It was stated that the fraternity
partially complied with the regula-
tions inasmuch as it submitted a pe-
tition to hold the initiation. It held
the initiation on the date designated
without knowing that the petition
had not been granted because of the
ineligibility of the pledge.
Social, probation is interpreted by
the council to deny the fraternity per-
mission to sponsor dances or social.
functions of any kind.
The disciplinary measures were
comparatively lenient, Paul W. Phil-
ips, '36, secretary of the council, ex-
plained, because of the fraternity's
ten-year record was more than sat-
isfactory both in social functions and
in scholarship.
Williams stated last night that the
action taken in this case was intended
partly as a warning to other frater-
nities who were believed to have
broken or who are about to break
registrations in the same manner.
Reich Angered By
Memel Appointment;
KAUNSAS, Lithuania, Nov. 13.-(')}
- In the face of an uproar in Ger-
many over, the reported appointment
of the Lithuanian M. Borchertas as
president of the Memel territory's di-

rectorate, it was announced semi-
officially tonight Borchertas "merely
has been charged with exploring the
possibilities of formation of a new
directorate." -
An open split in the Memel diet
resulted from refusal of the German
majority to enter discussion with
Borchertas with a view to forming
a new directorate.
It was stated authoritatively in

MacDonald, Simon
May Face Defeat
Says National Government
Will Go Back Into Office
With Heavy Losses
LONDON, Nov. 13.- P) --Great
Britain's swift but stormy general
election campaign ended tonight with
the main interest in how badly shak-
en Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin's
national government will be after the
nation votes tomorrow.
A victory by the national regime
was expected by party leaders. They
predicted a reduced but sound work-
ing majority in the House of Com-
mons, probably of around 150, al-
though there were unknown elements,
such as how liberals will vote.
Several outstanding personalities,
including former Prime Minister J.
Ramsay MacDonald, were likely to
be beaten in their constituencies.
MacDonald, now Lord President of
the council, is accused by the labor
party of being a "traitor" to it.
Others thought in danger were Sir
John Simon, liberal and present home
secretary, and Sir Herbert Samuel,
liberal leader.
Disorders and rowdyism, especially
in the industrial sections of the North
and West, marked the campaign.
In the last general election, four
years ago, the government won an
unprecedented majority in Parlia-
ment of 521 to 91.
The current European crisis found
a place to strengthen Britain's de-
fenses has been the keynote of the
government's campaign, while labor
attacks it on rearmament plans and
accused it of neglecting the unem-
The voting will be upon 615 seats in
the House of Commons. There are
1,348 candidates, 584 of them govern-
ment ones. Labor has 551; Liberals,
151; Independents 45; and Indepen-
dent Labor 17.
There are 37 unopposed candidates,
including Prime Minister Baldwin
and 21 other government candidates.
Fascists Make
Strong Gains
Near Hauzien
Italy Annexes Makale As
Flank Guards Skirmish
With Ethiopians
HAUZIEN, Ethiopia, Nov. 13. - UP)
-A fierce charge by white-horsed
Libyan lancers halted Ethiopian at-
tempts to cut Italian communication
lines south of this city today and pre-
cipitated a bloody battle.
Many were slain before the forces
of Dedjazmatch Gabriet the Ethi-
opian commander, were put to rout.
The Ethiopians had hidden them-
selves on both sides of a caravan trail
leading to Hauzien (about 30 miles
north of Makale). They were ef-
fectively concealed in fields of maize
five feet high.
They waited until a long train of
mules wasdwell between them, and
then opened fire.
At that moment, however, the Lib-
yan Spahis of Col. Miecci, the cav-
alry squadron which has several
members of the Italian nobility
among its officers, charged out.
The troopers wheeled into the
maize fields, ran down the Ethiopians
and scattered them.

Reports Of Secret
Accord Are Denied
Complete Suppression Of
Anti-Japanese Activities
Demanded By Tokio
(By The Associated Press)
A praying woman Wednesday chose
a Tientsin Buddhist temple to as-
sassinate Marshal Sun Chun Fang,
often called Japan's choice for lead-
ership of an independent North
The twenty-five-year-old, well-
dressed slayer turned from an atti-
tude of prayer as Sun entered the
temple to attend a Buddhist meeting
and'emptied her revolver at the Gen-
eral. Then she calmly surrendered
to police.
Investigators reported that she was
the daughter of the late Gen. Sze
Chung Pin, and that she blamed Sun
for the execution of her father.
Sun, once one of the most power-
ful war lords in China, has been a
staunch opponent of the Nanking
Government. He was 50 years old
and had been living in retirement in
recent years.
Nanking Promise Reported
At the same time reports from
Shanghai said that new Japanese ac-
tivities in China had been met with
assurances of cooperation by the
Nanking Foreign Office.
The assurances were given the sec-
retary of the Japanese embassy in
the capital, who cited recent Shang-
hai incidents, including the slaying of
a Japanese Marine, to Foreign Office
Newspaper reports that the Jap-
anese had demanded abolition of the
Kuomintang (Chinese Nationalist)
headquarters were not confirmed by
the Japanese embassy, but sharp dis-
pleasure was voiced there over the
party's asserted failure to halt anti-
Japanese activities.
Tri-Partite Pact Rumored
Newspapers in Tokio carried re-
ports from Hsinking, Manchoukuo, of
a forthcoming secret agreement
among the United States, Russia and
China to keep armed forces in the
Orient for maintenance of peace.
Officials at the State Department
in Washington described this report
as "too silly and ridiculous" to de-
serve notice.
The report of the agreement said
that Maxim Litvinoff, Soviet foreign
commissar, and W. W. Yen, Chinese
ambassador to Russia, had completed
the pact, and that the United States
was expected to join soon.
It was stated authoritatively in,
Tokio, however, that the headquar-
ters of the Japanese Army in Man-
choukuo originated the report. These
informed sources said that the Jap-
anese Military, which has been rum-
ored to be planning new moves in
North China, was attempting to
create fear of the danger of Russia.

Heneman Foresees International
Complications In British Vote

Fate Of Baldwin Cabinet
Will Be Determined By
General Election
Today's general election in Eng-
land-the first since 1931-which
is equal in importance to a presi-
dential election in the United States
may have far-reaching international
complications, Dr. Harlow J. Hene-
man of the political science depart-
ment explained last night.
The National Government, which
was formed during the economic
crisis in 1931, and putting forth a
platform calling for rearmament and
firmness in backing the League of
Nations, is expected to be returned to
office, Dr. Heneman pointed out.
"However," he said, "It stands a good
chance of losing some of its large ma-
jority in the House of Commons."
The National Government which is
really a coalition and non-partisan
group, now has 520 seats out of the
615 in the Commons, according to
Dr. Heneman.
Should it fail to win out, he said,
England's attitude toward the League
may be radically changed. With a
naval armament conference sched-
uled in London next year, the Na-
tional Government's avowed rearm-

Cochrane, Okeson To Talk
At Event In Honor Of
Football Squad
Mickey Cochrane, manager of the
World's Champion Detroit Tigers,
and Walter Okeson, Commissioner of
the Eastern Intercollegiate Athletic
Association, will speak at the annual
Union Football Smoker which will be
held at 8 p.m. Tuesday night, Nov.
26, it was announced by Union of-
ficials last night.
The smoker is held in honor of the
Varsity football squad and is attend-
ed by the entire staff of football
coaches and the members of the Var-
sity-R.O.T.C. Band.
Okeson is a member of the athletic
department of Lehigh University, and
for the past few years has been head
of Eastern Intercollegiate Associa-
tion. This association formulates
and decides about all rules pertaining
either to eligibility or to the athletic
contests between the colleges and uni-
versities in the East.
Tickets for the Smoker are on sale
at the Union desk in the main lobby
and may be bought from sophomore
committeemen and members of the
Union executive council.

ament intentions will be a factor of
great influence in future internation-
al arms policies, he stated.
Opposing the coalition National
Government, which is headed by
Stanley Baldwin, Conservative party
leader, are the Opposition Laborites
and Opposition Liberals, of which the
Laborites are the more formidable,
according to the British government
expert of the political science depart-
Advocates Program
The labor party, advocating a so-
cialistic program at home and scoring
the government's rearmament poli-
cies, is also backing the League, but
charges the cabinet with insincerity
in its international program, Dr.
Heneman said. "Why did it not back
the League against Japan in Man-
churia?" the Laborites ask. The Lib-
eral party, small i numbers, also
supports the Government interna-
tionally, but have set forth their tra-
ditional doctrines of free trade as
essential to improvement in the ec-
onomic situation in Great Britain,
Dr. Heneman advised.
In answer to these, Dr. Heneman
said, the National Government,
which is mostly supported by the
Conservative party, declares to the
British people that confidence is, at
this juncture of affairs, an all-im-
portant thing, and only in the Na-
tional Government can they really
have confidence.
Standing out in the hot campaign
that ended yesterday is the charge of
the opposition that the Government
is calling the general election at this
time in order to confuse the real is-
sue and use the unanimity of opinion
over the Government's firmness in
backing the League to its personal
advantage in domestic affairs, Dr.
Heneman explained.
Attitude Of George
"A shabby trick" was the way
David Lloyd George, famed war-
time prime minister, now Opposition
Liberal leader, termed the election.
And Viscount Philip Snowden, form-
er chancellor of the exchequer under
the National coalition who is now
swinging toward the Opposition
Laborites, designated it as a "trick
"It is probably true that the Na-
tional Government is calling the
election at this time because it is
particularly advantageous to it,"
Heneman explained, "but all govern-
ments do that, and always the oppo-
sition complains of unfairness."
Despite the fact that today is a
time advantageous to the National
Government, it will probably lose
heavily to the Laboritesaccording to
Dr. Heneman, although still main-
taining a working majority. If the
Government is successful today, "as
it probably will be," it probably can
continue in office for five years, Dr.
Heneman believes.
To back his contention that the
Labor party will win in many districts

champions, the Detroit Tigers, and
vice-president of the American
League, died today an hour after he
fell from his horse at the Detroit

First inkling of the tragedy came

'good Old Days' Spirit Is
Lacking; Coalition Party
Sweeps Literary Offices
Baker Slate Wins
In Business School
Lack Of Preparation For
Elections Caused Poor
Attendance, Dixon Says
Apathetic turnouts characterized
senior elections held yesterday after-
noon in the literary college, engineer-
ing college, and the business admin-
istration school.
Only 162 votes were cast for the
office of president in the literary col-
lege, in notable contrast to the "good
old days" when electoral turnouts of
between 400 and 500 were common.
The Washtenaw-Coalition Party
of the literary college swept its en-
tire slate into office, meeting the pre-
dicted weak opposition from a hastily
organized "eleventh hour" group
whose candidates were selected late
Tuesday night. The voting was as
Russell Runquist, Theta Xi, de-
feated William Renner, Alpha Sigma
Phi, for president, 117 to 45; Betty
Green, Martha Cook, who was unop-
posed for the office of vice-president,
polled 130 votes; Sue Thomas, Delta
Gamma, defeated Margaret Cowie,
Alpha Phi, for secretary, 123 to 38;
and Robert Sullivan, Phi Sigma
Kappa, defeated William R. Reed,
Independent, for treasurer, 114 to 46.
Merrill Wins
The Fraternity-Independent party
in the engineering college mowed
down the unnamed opposition party
which was organized, it appears, late
yesterday afternoon to make a true

have been a mere ratification. The

Very Light Vote
For president, Walter Baker, with
21 votes, was elected over Harold Nix-
on (15) and Harvey Nicholson (9);
for vice-president, Garratt van de
Riet, with 23 votes, was elected over
David Merriam (1) and Richard
Brandt (10); for secretary, Stanley
Kilgore, with 20 votes, was elected
over Francis Butler (14) and P. V.
Holopigian (10); for treasurer, Har-
old Schreder, with 24 votes, was
elected over William Morgan (12)
and H. D..Soper (8).
Wililam R. Dixon, '36, president of
the Men's Council, said last night he
believed the unusually light vote was
attributable to "lack of preparation"
by the several parties.
"The coming junior elections, es-
pecially in the engineering college,
should attract more attention," Dix-
on stated, "with the election of the
J-Hop chairman proving an incentive
to heavier balloting."
Dixon said the automatic voting
machines used in yesterday's elections
"worked very well" and that student
voters seemed to enjoy operating the

Treatment Planning Committee
Carries On Social Experiment

A new type of social experiment
in the direction of guidance of under-
privileged boys is being carried on
this year by a specially formed treat-
ment planning committee of the Uni-
This "Ann Arbor Boys' Guidance
Project," under the direct supervi-
sion of Marshall H. Levy, '27, assisted
by five University students, is pursu-
ing a seven-fold program of character
development among 100 Ann Arbor
boys by maintaining close contact
with them all through the winter
months as a continuation of the reg-
ular activities of the summer camp
at Patterson Lake.
The project is being carried on
with two ends in view: the develop-
ment of methods of measuring per-
sonality growth, and the setting up of
a model boy's guidance project that

Boersma, '37, E. Everett Brereton, '37,
and Howard Holland, '37, all of whom
also served as counselors at the sum-
mer camp.
These counselors engage in some
kind of activity with their particular
group of boys almost every day, and
keep in touch constantly with the
boys' parents, teachers, ministers,
club directors and scoutmasters.
Some of the activities in which the
groups take part are day trips to the
camp to pick vegetables grown there,
marketing these vegetables and cider
at the city market, selling confec-
tions around the city and at football
games, starting new Wolf Club packs
and Boy Scout patrols, as well as
hobbies and sports of all varieties.
The objectives of the project, as
outlined by Mr. Levy, are the promo-
