WPA Official Demands
Immediate Passage Of
State Insurance Act
Gives Talk Before
Accountants Group
Social Security Bill Is
Explained By Altmeyer,
Federal Board Member
Immediate enactment of a state un-
employment insurance act and a new
plan for old age pensions were urged
for Michigan yesterday by Dr. Wil-
liam Haber, deputy administrator of
the state Works Progress Adminis-
tration in an address before the
Michigan Accounting Conference in
the Union.
The Ohio plan of unemployment
insurance, where funds are pooled
from statewide contributions, is best
suited for the Michigan situation, Dr.
Haber said. "In this state," he told
the accountants, "an unemployment
insurance plan is more necessary than
in almost any other place. Unem-
ployment here is more highly season-
alized than in any other state. Even
with the great efforts of the automo-
bile manufacturers to stabilize em-
ployment, there was a 40 per cent
fluctuation during' July."
Present Law Inadequate
The present state pension law is
not adequate, the WPA official stated.
"It does not comply with the quali-
fications demanded by the Social Se-
curity Act because there have been
no appropriations by the State. The
present law is not mandatory, and
the authority of the State adminis-
tration is not broad enough."
Unless an unemployment insurance
act and a new pension plan are put
into effect immediately, Dr. Haber
warned, Michigan will receive. no
benefits from the national act, de-
spite the fact it will be taxed heavily
under its provisions.
Although he discussed the entire
Social Security Act in its relation to
Michigan, Dr. Haber confined his re-
marks chiefly to its phases dealing
with unemployment and old age pen-
sions. Admitting that the so-called
Wisconsin or individual fund plan of
unemployment insurance has its good
points-such as creating a greater
employer-interest-nevertheless Dr.
Haber strongly advocated the col-
lective pool system for this state.
"This plan allows for the diffusion of
risk," he declared, "which is the very
essence of insurance.
Exemptions Are Scored
"We have greatly exaggerated the
ability of the individual employer to
solve the unemployment problem,"
Dr. Haber said. "I believe we can
combine both plans here, but im-
mediate action is necessary."
Such a system, operating in con-
nection with the National Social Se-
curity Act, would cover 57 per cent
of the working population pf Michi-
gan-approximately 1,100,000 persons
-according to Dr. Haber. A total of
814,000 persons would be exempt
under the law, he said.
Exemption of concerns employing
up to eight persons as scored by
Dr. Haber, although he advocated
that the act not apply to firms with
five or less employees.
Discussing the tax on payrolls nec-
essary to take care of the Michigan
situation, he held that "if three per
cent is levied in other states, a higher
tax would be justified here." He
urged a "three or four per cent tax,"
which, he claimed, would "provide
sufficient benefit for 20 weeks of a
52 week year."
Depression unemployment can only
be adequately covered, Dr. Haber de-
clared, by increasing the pay-
ment to the unemployment fund to a
point where it is able to handle such
an increase in unemployed. "A five

per cent tax would handle it," he said,
"but I don't believe we are able
to go that far."
A three per cent tax on payrolls
would increase prices of commodities
one and three-tenths per cent to con-
sumers, Dr. Haber estimated. "It

Danger Increases
HILO, Hawaii, Nov. 22.-(/P) --Five
rivers of blazing lava surged down the
slopes of Mauna Loa today in one of
Hawaii's most spectacular volcanic
eruptions in years.
One sizzling stream a mile wide
became for a time a potential men-
ace to this city of 20,000. The tre-
mendous activity later appeared to
die down.
However, Dr. Thomas A. Joggar,
governmennt volcanist, made plans
to divert the flow by blasting in case
it headed toward Hilo.
The threatening stream rolled 13
iles down the volcano's north slope
to a point where it might turn east-
ward in the direction of Hilo or west-
ward toward a sparsely-settled side
of the island.
The head of this flow was about
25 miles from the city when one wit-
ness said Mauna Loa "showed signs of
Hilo was threatened once before -
in 1881. A stream crept within a mile
of the city. Islanders like to recall that
Princess Ruth of the Hawaiian royal
house stood before the oncoming flood
and called upon Pele, the Volcano
goddess. The lava flow stopped.
The lava began bursting through
the west slope of Mauna Loa about
6:35 o'clock last night (12:05 a.m.
Eastern Standard Time, Friday),
about 18 hours after a moderate
earthquake, which was followed by
a 'mall tidal wave.
The glowing lava reddened the sky,
being visible in Honolulu, more than
200 miles distant.
The island of Hawaii, with many
active craters, has experienced count-
less eruptions. Only once in recorded
history has lava destroyed a village.
In 1926, Hoopuloa, a fishing village,
was wiped out by a Mauna Loa erup-
tion, but was evacuated before the
lava arrived.

The United States put financial
pressure on would-be war shippers
Friday while Great Britain and
France turned aside Premier Benito
Mussolini's sanctions protest with re-
newed avowals of allegiance to the
League of Nations covenant.
An implied shipping board threat
to tighten the purse strings on debtor
ship owners to halt raw material ship-
ment to the African theater of war
was disclosed at Washington.
On the heels of this revelation, the
Italian ambassador, Augusto Rosso,
was closeted for an hour with Secre-
tary of State Hull.
Great Britain in her note to Il Duce
accepted "the consequences" of sanc-
tions and sharply refused to reopen
discussion of questions raised by the
Italian protest.
France in a somewhat similar com-
munication disclosed plainly that her
need to insure League protection of
the League Covenant in the event
of an attack in Europe must out-
weigh her bonds of friendship for
the Fascist state.
Both nations affirmed their will-
ingness to seek a peaceful settlement
of the Italo-Ethiopian war. But both
expressed strong confidence in the
fairness of the sanctions proceedings
at Geneva--something Italy has as-
sailed with vigor.

Two Harvard
Students Face
Assault Count
On Trial For Roughing
Janitor; Sons Of Socially
Prominent Families
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 22. - (P)
- Two socially prominent Harvard
students were tried today for a brutal
assault on an elderly college janitor,
and while one testified he had drunk
too much to recall anything, the other
vigorously protested his innocence.
Bennet Y. Ryan, son of a wealthy
New York publisher, who was named
by another student as the assailant
of Frank Foster, janitor at exclusive
Dunster House, testified he had been
drinking heavily and had no recollec-
tion of the attack on Foster.
Foster lost the sight of one eye and
was so severely injured his recovery
remained in doubt for several weeks

any Big Ten game. We have every
respect for Michigan and for Bill
Renner, whom we respect as a real
ball player, and we'll settle right this
minute for a 2-0 win.
"No mercy?" - just newspaper
stuff," was Godfrey's comment on the
reported attitude of Coach Schmidt
toward today's game. "And further-
more, the ballyhoo about our "Scar-
let Scourge' is more newspaper stuff.
Every year sport writers pick out a
Big Ten team to build up, and this
year they picked Ohio State. Last.
season we ended up with a good team
and this year we're it.
"On the other hand," Godfrey said,
"our boys are in the best physical
condition of the season. If we win
today it means a share in the Big Ten
championship, so naturally we are
pointing for Michigan."
When asked how Ohio would like
to play Minnesota, Coach Godfrey
said, "We'd love it. Last weeks Mich-
igan-Minnesota score does not repre-
sent the difference between the two
teams. The statistics of the game
were about the same as those for the
Illinois-Ohio game, that ended in a
6-0 score. Michigan's 40-0 defeat
was just a result of bad breaks."
L. W. St. John, director of athletics,
was present to deny the allegations of
a super-team complex on the part
of the Ohio State squad and coaches.
'And don't try to make us say so,
he added.
Commenting on the recent state-
ments of Ohio's Governot Davey
apropos football subsidization, God-
frey said, "sure our boys work in the
state building, but they really work.-
You can-find-them on their-jobs, when F
they are supposed to be there.
And then the familiar conclusion,
"may the best team win."

In Cohen Suit
Court Summons Regents
To Give Reasons For
Legal notification of the suit in-
stituted by Daniel Cohen, '37E, in
Federal Court to gain readmission to
the University was served yesterday
on Shirley Smith, secretary to the
Board of Regents.
Summonses against the Board of
Regents as a corporation, which were
received yesterday, were turned over
to George Burke, attorney for the
University, who is acting with David
M. Crowley, State attorney-general,
as counsel for the respondents.
Burke will have approximately two
weeks in which to file an answer to
the charges cited in a petition drawn
up several weeks ago by Patrick H.
O'Brien, former attorney-general, and
Nicholas V. Olds, who are acting as
counsel for Cohen at the request of
the American Civil Liberties Union.

the Board of Regents individually,

because of "interfering with the work

dents." Ovsiew has since been re-
admitted to the University by Presi-

Although the original appeal for a
writ of mandamus was filed before
Federal Judge Ernest A. Brien sev-

In Starting Lineup
Valpey Will Start At Right
End; Garber Placed At

(Daily Sports Editor)
The Scarlet Scourge of Ohio State,
most highly ballyhooed of recent grid
machines, descends on Michigan this
afternoon with the intention of
clinching no less than a share in the
1935 Big Ten title. Michigan, de-
cidedly the underdog, on the other
hand is out to make a success of the
1935 season with a win over the

ed little more than an outside chance
against a team which has been im-
pressive in every game to date, in-
cluding its only loss, to Notre Dame.
A crowd of approximately 70,000,
including 11,000 from Columbus, is
expected to make up the largest at-
tendance of the 1935 Michigan sea-
Viergever, Sweet Ready
Michigan's chances rest on the con-
dition of three regulars, injured last
week against Minnesota. They are
Cedric Sweet, John Viergever and
Harry Wright.
Trainer Ray Roberts has pro-
nounced Viergever and Sweet ready
TE- do, and they are both included in
a tentative starting lineup announced
yesterday by Coach Harry Kipke, but
Joe Rinaldi is expected to start at
center in place of Wright. And al-
hough Sweet is expected to start at
fullback, his punting duties will be
taken over by either Bob Campbell,
tentative starter at halfback, or Cap-
tain Renner or John Smithers.
Other Wolverine changes include
Art Valpey,'starting at end, and Jesse
Garber at guard. Earle Luby, a sopho-
more, is expected to relieve Viergever
at tackle.
Buckeyes In Shape
The Buckeyes, working out at Dear-
horn yesterday afternoon, reported
themselves in top physical condition
for the 'game, with no serious in-
juries of any kind.
The rivalry between Michigan and
Ohio State is one of the most famous
in the country from standpoint of
bitterness and every game between
the two schools never fail to bring
out the best in both teams. More
people have watched these two elev-
ens battle it out every year than
have witnessed any other traditional
series, including the Army-Navy
struggles and the age-old Yale-
Harvard conflict.
The first game between the two
schools was played in 1897, when the
Wolverines gave the Buckeyes a 96
to 0 trimming. The series continued
without a break from 1900 to 1912,
was revived in 1918, and the games
have been a yearly event ever since.
Ohio Loses Thriller
Prior to the opening of the 1935
season, Ohio State's Scarlet Scourge
was ballyhooed by grid experts from
coast to coast as the greatest team
of modern football. The Buckeyes
opened the season against a primed
Kentucky eleven which held them to
a 19-0 win. However, the Ohio steam-
roller went into action against Drake
one of the better minor teams, and
piled up 85 counters to its opponents'
single touchdown.
After wins over Northwestern and
Indiana, Notre Dame's Ramblers,
with Andy Pilney playing a Merriwell
role, overcame a two-touchdown lead
in the closing minutes with a come-
back reminiscent of the Rockne elev-
lens to jolt the Buckeyes from the

national championship picture. Seem-
ingly subdued by the defeat at the
hands of the Irish, State had trouble
in ekeing out victories over Chicago
and Illinois.

A. G. Altmeyer Invites Test Of
Security Board's Legal Status

The Social Security Board welcomes
a test of constitutionality of the So-
cial Security Board, Arthur J. Alt-
meyer, one of the three members,
said yesterday.
Taking a rather naive view of the
situation, Mr. Altmeyer, a former as-
sistant secretary of labor, declared
that "There is no doubt as to the
constitutionality of the act.
"Our lawyers have told us not to
worry about it being held invalid by
the Supreme Court," he said. "I see
no features of the bill that are in-
compatible with the constitution."
Asked whether or not a majority

Nevertheless, he said, "There is a sort
of chronic insecurity. Even during
the boom years, the amount of un-
employment was sufficient to con-
stitute a considerable problem."
The money paid into the federal
treasury by employers in states not
having an unemployment insurance
act is entirely unearmarked, Mr. Alt-
meyer admitted, and U.S. authorities
may use it for any purpose they see
fit. "But this fact should not prove
a handicap; rather an asset," he add-
Mr. Altmeyer is of the opinion that
where an industry already has an
unemployment insurance plan in ef-
