NYA_ Jobs
Prof. Lewis M. Gram Say:
Needy Students Will Noi
Be Displaced By Adult4
WPA Funds To Pay
Welfare Workers
Residents May Work Side
By Side With Students
But Won't 'Cut In'
A rumor that needy students herf
are being deprived if opportunities
to work under the National Youtl
Administration through the hiring of
"white-collared" townspeople was em-
phatically denied last night by Prof.
Lewis M. Gram, director of plant
extension and local NYA head.
"Our NYA funds have been com-
pletely allocated," Professor Gram
stated, "and it is therefore quite im-
possible to hire any students now on
the NYA waiting list until there are
vacancies made by resignations or
until additional funds are granted
The 35 townspeople soon to be em-
ployed by the University in clerical
projects are all on welfare roll status,
Professor Gram explained. Since
this group is to be paid with Works
Progress Administration money, it
will be entirely impossible to allot any
of this work to the student body, he
Beliefs entertained by certain stu-
dents that faculty employers of NYA
workers were seeking WPA men and
women because they*could put in
three times as much work a month
as students were termed "entirely er-
roneous" by Professor Gram.
No 'Cutting In'
"It is true that the Ann Arbor resi
dents who will work in University offl-
ces under the WPA will be working,
in many cases, side by side with stu-
dents," Professor Gram pointed out,
"but this does not mean that the
WPA group is 'cutting in' on the stu-
dents. The WPA and the NYA are
altogether different organizations."
Requests were submitted to the
Federal Government this fall for
clerical and research workers who
would be paid by the WPA, Professor
Gram explained. The clerical jobs
have recently been approved, he said,
and enlistment of "white collar"
workers skilled in typing, steno-
graphy, library work and similar du-
ties will take place this week.
In addition, unskilled and semi-
skilled WPA workers are now being
employed by the University on side-
walk, pavement and other construc-
tion jobs, Professor Gram declared.
Students Not Affected
"The 1,300-odd students now on
the NYA roll and the 300-odd stu-
dents on the waiting list are not af-
fected in any manner by the hiring
of these townspeople," Professor
Gram maintained.
"No student's job has been taken
or will be taken by local adult work-
ers," he added.
Professor Gram said that faculty
members were pleased with the work
done by their student NYA aid, and
in some cases had asked NYA ad-
ministrators that their student work-
ers be granted longer hours and more
pay because of extreme financial dis-

The WPA clerical force to be hired
this week will work probably 130
hours a month for a $60 salary, Pro-
fessor Gram stated.

Representative' Government
"The purpose of the Michigan League shall be to encourage
active cooperation in the work of women's self-government; to
provide for the formation of an official body to give adequate ex-
pression to the opinon of the women students in matters of general
college interest.. ."
Article 1, Section 1 of the League Constitution.
C. . .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." - Jean Seeley, '36,
president of the League.
The Board of Representatives, which represents the opinion of
women students, has voted 53 to 17 against the change in women's
hours and has given the League Council a clear mandate. If Miss
Seeley and the Council now override this veto, they are plainly
negating their own constitution. They should also bear in mind that
the Council of which they are members was created by this same
Board which is now demanding that they express the real opinion of
women undergraduates.
If the League Council has any doubt that real opinion is against
its oligarchic methods it may also take into consideration a petition
signed by 80 of the 86 members of Helen Newberry Residence,
which very plainly expresses unqualified opposition to a change in
women's hours.
The Daily does not wish to predict what will happen if the
Council changes hours against the wishes of campus opinion, but
it is not beyond the bounds of possibility that the women will rebel.
The two principal reasons the Council has presented for its
proposed change in hours are: (1) that there are excessive bolts in
Saturday classes and (2) that extreme cases of "fatigue" have been
reported among the women.
Answer to the charge of excessive bolts is made in a statement
by Wilber R. Humphreys, assistant dean. of the literary college:
"With the present system we can't arrive at any statistical estimate
because there is no system of uniform reporting. Only excessive
absences ard reported and, although we have a number of these, we
do not always have the date on which they occurred."
If the University officials do not know if there have been exces-
sive Saturday bolts, what superhuman power does the Council possess
that enables it to know?
To the charge that there have been many cases of "fatigue," we
refer the League Council to the survey conducted by The Daily.
Thirteen of the fourteen house mothers interviewed reported they
had found no cases of "fatigue."
Throughout the present controversy on women's hours the
reasoning of Miss Seeley and the League Council has been fallacious.
We advise them to recognize real campus opinion.

FERA Director,
To Speak Here
Will Talk On 'Problems In
Government' Tomorrow
At Hill Auditorium
The Hon. Harry L. Hopkins, admin-
istrator of the Federal Emergency Re-
lief Act and head of the Works Prog-
ress Administration, will deliver the
third of the lecture series sponsored
by the Oratorical Association at 8:15
p.m. tomorrow in Hill Auditorium.
Hopkins will present his views on
"The Problems of Government," and
his address will not concern political
parties or issues, it was announced
in a letter from Hopkins to the Ora-
torical Association.
Hopkins is coming to Ann Arbor
from the Detroit WPA office, accom-
panied by Harry L. Pierson, State
WPA administrator, and it is expect-
ed that his lecture will include an
analysis of the relief problems as
they are being met in this state.
Among the general subjects whichI
will be discussed by Hopkins are the1
problems of distributing and financ-
ing the huge $4,880,000,000 fund ap-
propriated by Congress for federal
relief projects.
He will also describe the methods
by which the administrators of the
WPA evaluate projects submitted by
the various state relief boards.
Hopkins has been in governmental
and private relief work since his grad-

Cup Will Be Awarded
Trigon Fraternity
More than 600afraternity pledges
are expected to attend the banquet
in their honor to be given at 6 p.m.
tomorrow in the Union as invitations
to attend were extended to all fresh-
men advisors last night by John A.
Cawley, '36, toastmaster and chair-
man of the banquet committee of the
Interfraternity Council.
The first banquet of its kind, it has
gained such wholehearted support
from fraternities that it will become
an annual affair, George R. Williams,
'36, president of the council, believes.
Cawley emphasized that the ban-
quet will be informal, thus allowing
pledges who participate in the R. O.
T. C. review that afternoon to at-
tend in their uniforms.
Trigon fraternity, all of whose
members will be guests, will receive
the Interfraternity Council scholar-
ship cup, given annually to the gen-
eral fraternity which maintains the
highest grade average the previous
President Ruthven, who will be the
principal speaker, Dean Joseph A.
Bursley, Dean Edward H. Kraus of
the literary college, and Dean Her-
bert C. Sadler of the engineering col-
lege will be in attendance.
The presidents and rushing chair-
men of all fraternities will attend
with their pledge classes.
Tickets for the banquet not sold by
noon Monday must be checked in

Michigan Overpowered
In Everything But Spirit
As Ohio State Wins, 38-0


Victory Brings Scarlet
With Minnesota For
Ten Title Honors


Buckeyes Unleash
Versatile Offense
Brilliant Defensive Work
Of Capt. Renner Stops
Overpowered in every department
but spirit, the Michigan football team
bowed to Ohio State, 38-0, yesterday
in the Stadium before a crowd of 65,-
000. The win gave the Scarlet a tie
with Minnesota for the Big Ten title.
The Buckeyes unleashed a versatile
attack executed by an almost endless
succession of superior gridders, and
only the fighting of the Michigan
team and the brilliant defensive work
of Captain Bill Renner held the Scar-
let score to 38 points.
Ohio State, with Dick Heekin and
William "Tippy" Dye leading the way,
scored six touchdowns, including a
73-yard return of a Michigan punt by
the 142-pound Dye, who in three
years of college athletics has never
failed to distinguish himself in oppos-
ing the Wolverines.
Outclassed At Line
Michigan, completely outclassed by
a line which had everything including
speed and weight, and a set of backs
which presented speed, drive and an
outstanding passing attack, made an
early bid for a score when James Mc-
Donald's fumble was recovered on the
Ohio 19-yard line by Jesse Garber.
From that point, after a running
play and two passes had failed, an
attempted field goal by Steve Remias
fell short by five feet, and the Buck-
eyes began their rout.
Passing was the key to the attack
of both teams, as the Buckeyes mixed
their aerial game with a strong run-
ning attack, while Renner attempted
to pass the Wolverines to a score in
their most extensive use of that de-
partment during the current season.
Score Only Once On Passes
But one Buckeye score was made
on a pass, but the throws of Stan
Pincura set the stage for one other,
while a forward-double-lateral pass
play scored from the Michigan 28.
Drives, of 30 to 45 yards, accounted
for two other scores for the Scarlet
Michigan was able to gain but 12
yards from scrimmage and the pass-
ing of Renner netted 73 yards and
four first downs, but the Wolverines
never had the ball in scoring territory
after their first thrust.
Offensively, for the Buckeyes, Dye
and Heekin were the stars as the big
halfback scored twice on plunges
while Dye proved himself the team's
offensive sparkplug as Trevor Rees
stood out at right end. "Jumping Joe"
Williams, Ohio State's sophomore
backfield flash, was held in check
from scrimmage, but punt returns
which averaged better than 25 yards
proved his claim to recognition.
Renner Stars
For Michigan, it was the play of
Captain Renner alone which kept the
points from mounting. Directing the
attack as quarterback and bearing
the undivided passing burden, Ren-
ner also took over the kicking duties,
while his defensive play was the most
outstanding feature of the game.
Playing at safety or at halfback, Ren-
ner was practically without exception
in on every tackle ahead of the line.
Michigan started the game without
the services of three regulars, Cedric
Sweet, John Viergever and Harry
Wright, and only Viergever saw ser-
vice at all.
The season will be brought to an
official close Tuesday night with the
election of the 1936 captain, and
manager announcement of which will
be made at the annual football smok-
er that night.
Touchdowns: Heekin (2), Dye, Bet-
!tridge, Waslik, Boucher. Point after

Goal Posts Yield To Fans As
TeethFly And Man Is Beaten

Dance Music Via Electric Lioht
Socket? It's The Latest Thing

Michigan Supporters Hold
North Posts After Former
Boxer Leads Attack
More than 500 shouting, shoving
slugging fans ripped out the goal
posts at the south end of the football
field after the game yesterday, knock-
ing one man unconscious and kicking
six teeth from the face of another.
As soon as the iron bars at the
south had crashed to the earth, the
mob dashed to the opposite end of
the Stadium, but there a small but
valiant band of Michigan supporters
stopped them from tearing down the
north goal posts.
The hilarious free-for-all developed
into a deadly earnest fight when
Herbert Decker, 32 years old, pulled
Guard Slocum, '36, from the top of
the goal posts, which he was defend-
ing, hitting him in the face with his
foot and knocking out six teeth.
Spurred on by the enthusiasm of
Harvey Bauss, '33, former intercol-
legiate boxing and wrestling cham-
pion, Decker was quickly jerked
down into the midst of the Michigan
gang, which mauled him and slug-
ged him until he lost consciousness.
Carried limply from the Stadium by
friends, he was quickly revived and
uttered a faint, "Yea Ohio State."
Bauss, however, was not appeased,
and it was all that Harry Tillotson,
ticket manager, and several faculty
men could do to stop him from going
after Decker and giving him still
worse punishment. Bauss was sup-
ported in this desire by Slocum, who,
his mouth dripping blood, was eager
for revenge.
Several other attempts made by
Ohio State supporters against the
goal posts were frustrated, and fol-
lowing several pairs of fist-fights, the
milling throng broke up and stag-
gered out of the Stadium.

to storm the goal posts at the north
end of the field, Michigan men cap-t
tured the fallen south-end cross bars
and carried them to the other end of
the Stadium to use as a defense.
Where Michigan State failed a year
ago, Ohio State succeeded yesterday.I
When State downed the University
last year, the boys from East Lansing
stormed the goal posts, but Michigan;
men were able to prevent them.
Yesterday's episode was the first
time since the erection of the Stadium,
in 1928 that its goal posts have been
hauled down.
Grey-Haired Lady
Routs Mobsters At
Stadium Yesterday
It was a mysterious little gray-
haired old lady, wearing a red-
feathered Ohio State hat, that finally
broke up the throngs in front of
the north goal posts yesterday.
Swinging a satchel at all Michigan
men within her reach, the little wom-
an hurled taunts at those about her.
An over-zealous young University
supporter attempted to jerk her
jauntily-set cap from her head. She
turned on him, waving her satchel,!
and chased him across the field.
"Don't you dare lay a hand on me,"
she told the ever-thinning crowd.
"I've had experience with Michigan
riots before," the mysterious old lady
told a reported who accompanied her
out of the Stadium. "Experience
with Michigan mobs and experience
fighting Mike Gallagher (the Most
Rev. Michael Gallagher, Bishop of
Detroit) ."
"What is your name?" the report-
er asked. "Where are you from?"
"I'm not saying," she replied tartly,
"but wouldn't you like to know."
"Are you from Ann Arbor? From

Guy Lombardo over the telephone?
Glenn Gray through the electric
light socket? No glib pleas for
"stream-lined bathubs" or earnest
warnings against "paralyzed pores?"
These latest possibilities in the field
of radio were described by Prof.
Lewis N. Holland of the electrical en-
gineering department in an interview'
yesterday with the Daily.
Electrical engineers have been able
for some time now, Professor Hol-
land said, to project ordinary tele-
phone conversations over electric
light wires, and to transmit radio
programs over telephone wires at the
same time that those same wires are

ences that mar the reception of radio I
programs over the "air."
There is no particular mystery as to
how this may be accomplished, Pro-
fessor Holland stated. It is all based
on differences in the frequency of
waves which transmit the sounds.
The ordinary household electric wires,
for instance, are based on a 60 cycle
frequency, while a radio broadcast-
ing studio bases its transmission on
frequencies extending into the hun-
dreds of thousands.
All that has to be done, he con-
tinued, is thus to transmit radio pro-
grams over electricity wires at a fre-
quency somewhere mid-way between
these two frequencies, and transmis-
sion can take place without interfer-
