Pay 99.2
Of Loans;

Establish Honest
According to many in the studen
body, who have been missing sligh
sums of $1, $2 and $3 from their bil
folds and pocket books when thei
backs are turned, the student body i
d anything but honest. But the 193
a University Financial Report disprove
this allegation.
Since 1897, when the first studen
lean wasmade, the history of thes
student loan funds has been "re-
markably favorable." In this 38-
s year period the records in the Cash-
ier's Office show that a total of more
than $1,000,000 has been loaned to
t students. Judging from the average
s size of student loans this year, this
would mean that between 8,000 and
9,000 students had made use of the
loan funds.
- During this entire period it has
h been found necessary to charge off
0 only 87 individual loans for a total
sum of $8,363.90, which is about
s eight-tenths of one per cent of the
j total amount of money loaned.
Most of these charged off have
t been treated so because the prema-
eture death of the maker without
estate. Moreover, a reserve set up
from interest on other student loans
has provided for the loss of these
loans the administration was forced
to charge off.
This shows that in the 38 years of
experience not one student loan fund
has been depleted since it came into
the University's hands.
So it seems as if University students
are honest after all.

Students of 57 nations gathered
last night in the Union for the In-
ternational Banquet given each year
to foreign students of the University
in the cause of international goodwill.
Philip C. Nash, president of the
University of Toledo and national di-.
rector of the League of Nations Asso-
ciation, gave the principal address at
the banquet.
Tracing an analogy between a small
community of 60 people, all living
together and all carrying a revolver
in their hip pockets, to the nations
of the world, Nash declared that the
ultimate solution to the problem of
war is a willingness of these nations
to voluntarily give up part of their
rights to other nations.
"I believe that the use of sanctions
against belligerent nations is going to
increase in effectiveness, and will do
much to make war unprofitable," he
stated, "but sanctions are not

Possibility Of
Bonus Fight
Is Forecast
r Texas Democrat Believes
s President Will Veto An)
s Measure For Payment
t Budget Conference
e ( Attracts Leaders
House May Consider Plan
Of Floating 'Baby Bonds'
To Raise Cash Needed
WASHINTON, Nov. 27. --
Foreshadowing possibilities of another
grim struggle between Congress and
the White House, Secretary of the
Treasury Henry Morgenthau, Jr., to-
day said, in effect, that administra-
tion attitude to cash payment of the
bonus was as unyielding as ever.
The possibility of a second Presi-
dential veto in as many years imme-
diately was forecast in some quarters.
Chairman James H. Buchanan (Dem.,
Tex.), of the House Appropriations
Committee who, like Morgenthau was
just back from a Warm Springs (Ga.)
budget conference with President
Roosevelt, said:
"Any law that provided the bonus
would have to provide the money,
that's all. Otherwise it necessarily
would have to be vetoed."
Quickly, Buchanan added a hint
of a possible method of financing the
bonus payment. The suggestion was
to pay the soldiers in baby bonds "and
let them do what they want with
them, takedthem to the bank and
so on."
House Favors Plan
"There was considerable sentiment
in the House last session for this,"
the Texan said, but refused to say
whether the plan was receiving ser-
ious administration consideration.
Both Morgenthau and Buchanan
insisted ways of financing bonus pay-
ments were not discussed at Warm
Despite Morgenthau's abrupt re-
mark that so "far as I know" the
White House is unchanged toward
the bonus, spokesmen for the veterans
flatly predicted that this time a veto
would be overridden and payment or-
Coincidentally, some members of
Congress expressed an opinion that
the administration would recommend
no new taxes to the next session, even
if the Supreme Court knocks the fi-
nancial props from beneath the AAA
processing taxes.
Belief Held
This belief was held despite a presi-
dential statement that loss of the
farm benefit levies would raise the
problem of new taxes.
That Congress in the first instance
will vote a bill calling for full pay-
ment of the bonus few seemed to
doubt. The only question was what
form the measure would take.
Last year a coalition of currency
expansionists and cash-payment ad-
vocates pushed through a bill order-
ing payment in newly printed treas-
ury certificates.
The House passed it 218 to 90 and
the Senate 53 to 33. President Roose-
velt vetoed it with a message deliv-
ered personally at a joint session.

To Batter Infantry Into
RIO DE JANEIRO, Nov. 27.-(P) -
Brazil's big guns and bayonets wiped
out a reckless Red revolt in the heart
of her capital defenses today.
The rebellious Third Infantry, mak-
ing a desperate stand in its barracks
at Praia Vermehla (Red Beach) be-
neath Sugar Loaf Mountain, surren-
dered only after loyal artillery had
pounded their stronghold to pieces
and Federal infantrymen had charged
the barracks with fixed bayonets.
At least a dozen rebels were slain.
Two captains and three soldiers of the
loyal army were wounded.
Tonight, with two revplts in the
Federal district smashed in one day
and the last of the northern insurg-
ents in flight by land, air and sea, the
government apparently had the na-
tion well in hand.
Bombed by planes and shelled by
cannon, seditious sergeants and pri-
vates were driven this morning from
the blazing Aviation School, inrthe
Federal district several miles from.
Five hundred rebels, said reports
from the north, fled from Natal
aboard the S. S. Santos of the Lloyd-
Brazileiro Line as Federal troops
swarmed into that seaport capital of
Rio Grande do Norte, held under the
Red flag since last Saturday.
Others were feported to have com-
mandeered a German airliner. The
Government telegraphed all northern
ports to keep a sharp lookout for the
Santos, believing that it may try to
disembark the rebels at Fortaleza or
Rebel leaders in the capital were
under arrest, held for court martial.

ROME, Nov. 27.-WP)-The League

thing on a quick victory in Ethiopia.

Instead of mass troop movements,
which has given Italy an impreg-

Brown of the political science de-
