To Talk At Meeting
Bitter Rivalry With Ohio
State Expected To Draw
Many To Gatherng
Ohio State's widely-publicized
"Scarlet Scourge" and the chance a
fighting Michigan machine has of
beating it will be the chief topics o
discussion before a pep meeting at 8
p.m. today in Hill Auditorium.
The firm conviction that Michi-
gan's fate is far from being as black
as sports writers paint it will be up-
held by Capt. William Renner and
Coach Harry G. Kipke, the principal
speakers of what is expected to prove
a most expiting evening.
It will be Captain Renner's first
appearance in an "official capacity"
at a pep rally.
According to the plans for the
meeting, announced last night by
William R. Dixon, president of the
Men's Council, which arranged the
meeting, both Kipke and Renner will
give informal talks, but no program
of formal speeches has been ar-
ranged for the meeting.
Band to Take Part
The Varsity-R.O.T.C. Band and the
cheerleaders will take part in the
program, with the usual features of
Michigan marches and yells.
Renner will be playing his last foot-
ball game for Michigan Saturday
when he faces the Buckeyes and will
bear the brunt of the Michigan at-
tack. Eight other seniors and a
junior in the team's overnight head-
quarters will be awaiting the last
game of their Wolverine football
George Bolas, Carl Carr, Ernie
Johnson, Winfred Nelson, Harry Pill-
enger, Steve Remias, Mike Savage,
and John Viergever are the seniors,
and Earl Meyers, a junior, will also
finish his Michigan competition be-
cause of a year's play on the fresh-
man team at Wayne University.
With the added incentive of the
bitter rivalry with Ohio State, Cap-
tain Renner's presence, and the sig-
nificance of the last game of the
season, a larger attendance than that
at the previous pep-meetings of this
year is hoped for, and the Men's
Council urges all students to attend
if it is physically possible for them
to do so.
"It'll be short and sweet, with lots
of noise," Dixon announced last night,
adding that the meeting would start
promptly so as to not interfere with
other student engagements later to-
Increased interest in the game was
evidence by the fact that the tem-
porary bleachers have been erected
around the top of the stadium to
take care of the extra applications
for seats between the two goal lines.
The largest football attendance of the
past two years is expected.

The federal secretariat of education,
alarmed by the growing number of
killings of rural school teachers, asked
the war department today to allow
teachers to arm for protection against
the violence measures of opponents of
More than 12 such killings have
been reported in the past month, most
of them in the states of Puebla More-

Several days ago two women teach-

who cut off their ears and threat-
ened them with death if they con-
tinued giving socialistic instruction.
Dispatches from Puebla yesterday
reported the leader of a band sus-
pected of killing six teachers in the
Texiutlan district in a single day
last week had been captured and shot
by federal troops.
Convinced that vigorous measures
are necessary to halt the slayings, au-
thorities placed his body on display
in the Plaza in Texiutlan in warning
of the enemies of official education.
Officials said the attacks on teach-

Defeat and rout of cunning Ras Sey-

In full flight and carrying their

enemy before Seyoum could rally his

How many of the Ethiopians were

losses were described as "small."

Dr. Muyskens was a student of Dr.
Clarence Meader, professor of gen-
eral linguistics, and under the great
scholar's influence, he developed his
theory, now proven a fact, that de-
fects in speech are caused by physi-
ological factors. This theory is a
radical change from that which held
that speech defects were caused large-
ly by psychological factors, and it is
this latter theory, in Dr. Muyskens'
opinion, which has greatly retarded
the basic work of speech correction.
The basis for the study of speech
correction which is being developed
by Dr. Muyskens is tht all charac-
teristics of speech are formed before
birth, and during the first three
years of a person's life. In this early
period, heredity, and then bottle-
feeding and thumb-sucking play a
large part, he said, for the last two
disarrange the bones of the head, and
deform the are of the roof of the
mouth. Other influences, however,
play an even larger part.
Nourishment, or the lack of it, is
the most important of these. In the
case of under-nourishment, he said,
a poor balance of the chemical qual-
ities of the body is formed, and all
speech correction must be based on
a study of these early conditions.
"The speech process," said Dr. Muy-
skens, "is the end product of the func-
tions of the body tissues as they were
in their early state."

Some Militarist, Civilian

in the balance.
The issue was expected to be de-

the civilian group, and Gen. Yoshi-

Council Acts For Women's
Best Interests, Despite
Short Hours Are
League Council Is Able To
Reverse Board's Action
By ELSIE A. PIERCE
By an overwhelming majority vote
of 53-17 the League Board of Repre-
sentatives yesterday flatly rejected
the proposal of the League Under-
graduate Council of the League to
advance women's closing hours on
Friday nights from 1:30 a.m. to 12:30
The Council will meet again Mon-
day to take final action and by a
two-thirds majority can pass the rul-
ing, even over the veto of the Board.
The ruling to change the closing
hours from 1:30 to 12:30 a.m. was
passed Monday by the Council, but in
)a special meeting held 'yesterday
noon, a revision was made to the
effect that junior women who are
eligible according to the University
rules be given 1:30 a.m. permission
Maureen Kavanagh, '36, president
of the Assembly, who presided at the
Board meeting, said, in commenting
on the vote, "the sentiment of the
group was that the proposed change
on Friday nights would be advisable
only if all classes be given 1:30 am.
permission on Saturdays, as is now
the rule for Fridays."
The move of the Council in pro-
posing the change came as a surprise
Monday, since a referendum 'among
campus women taken a month ago
revealed that they were opposed to
any changes. Nineteen out of the
20 sororities voted down the proposal,
and it was also vetoed in the Assem-
bly, the representative organization
of independent women. The matter
was also brought up before the Sen-
ate committee on student affairs, but
Jean Seeley, '36, president of the
League, stated that although "the
vote of the Board will be given the
most serious consideration when the
matter is taken up before the Council,
I shall urge the members to overrule
the veto. I cannot speak for ether
members of the Council, but I per-
sonally feel that we should act for

Miss Seeley and Winifred Bell, '36,
chairman of the Judiciary Council
and a member of the League Council,
attended the meeting of the Board,
and explained the action of the Coun-
cil, and urged that the rule be passed.
The reason given by Miss Seeley
and Miss Bell was that the Friday
night permission had proven detri-
mental to the health of women stu-
dents, because of the new Saturday
class ruling put into effect this fall.
