Hop To Manila
Thousands Hail Americans
On Arrival After Flight
Of 8,000 Miles
MANILA, Nov. 29.-()-The China
Clipper swept to a landing on Manila
Bay today, completing an 8,000-mile
flight with the first load of air-mail
ever carried across the Pacific ocean.
While thousands lining the shore
and scores of boats in the harbor set
up a terrific din, the 25-ton trans-
port circled the city a dozen times, ac-
companied by army and navy planes,
and then settled down and taxied up
to the landing float.
She landed at 2:31 a.m. today East-
ern Standard Time, endingan epoch-
making flight from Alameda, Calif.,
where she took off a week ago.
The crew, led by Capt. Edwin C.
Musick, veteran Pan-American Air-
ways pilot, was taken from the float
as scores of craft clustered about.
They were welcomed by Rear-Ad-
miral Orin G. Murfin and Maj.-Gen.

of the Philippine commonwealth, and

President Getulio Vargas of Bra-

the position of the government by

RIO DE JANEIRO, Nov. 29.-P(A)-
Dispatches from Recise reported to-

branch of this week's abortive Bra-

persons were seized.

"We were insolvent," he said; "to-

"Your government says to you:
'You cannot borrow your way out of

Discussing the rise in the national
debt, Mr. Roosevelt said:
"Into the ears of many of you have
been dinned the cry that your gov-

able and backbreaking debt."
Bankers Set Limit High
Then he told for the first time that
in a talk "with many of the great
bankers" who "flocked to Washing-
ton" in the crisis of 1933, these finan-
ciers agreed the government would
have to go further into debt."
"I asked them what they thought
the maximum national debt of the
United States could rise to without
serious danger to the national credit,''

was in the spring of 1933, were that
the country could safely stand a na-

tention then or now of permitting
such a debt.
"I told them then that only a mod-

ROME, Nov. 29.- (A') -Italy stands
ready to attack the British Mediter-
ranean fleet if an international oil
embargo is declared against her, un-
official but responsible sources in
Rome said today.
The most critical turn in European
affairs hinging on the Italo-Ethiopian
conflict in East Africa since the start
of Premier Mussolini's campaign of
occupation found Great Britain,
mainspring of the sanctions move-
ment, adamant in a determination to
enforce the embargo.
London officialdom denied Musso-

destroy the British Mediterranean
fleet, but in Paris officials reported

Sharp Note Assails Tokio
For 'Conniving' To Form
New State In North
SHANGHAI, Nov. 29.-()-China's
central government openly indicted
the Japanese Army Friday for "con-
niving" to create an autonomous
state in North China.
A sharply-worded protest, followng
an earlier communication to the Jap-
anese embassy which assailed seizure
of the railway junction point of Feng-
tai, east of Peiping, by Japanese
troops, was filed with Japan by the
It declared that "disgruntled ele-
ments, acting in connivance with
Japanese military officers," had
brought about the autonomy move-
ment, which, the note stated, was
contrary to popular desires.
The successive protests, informed
persons stated, plainly indicated that
the Nanking Government was stif-
fening in its opposition to the cam-
paign of secession-apparently as a
result of new manifestations of Chih-
ese popular feeling against autonomy.
A Japanese Army spokesman at
Tientsin, khere four more Japanese
airplanes arrived Friday, asserted
that the Chinese charges of Japanese
connivance with the autonomy move-
ment were "preposterous" and "ap-
parently designed to secure the aid
of the United States and Great Brit-
ain." At the same time, the Japanese
Government officially advised the
British Government that it would not
accept responsibility for develop-
ments in North China.

Once Colorful Stadium Is Now
Sans Pigskins, Life, Goal Posts
By FRED WARNER NEAL
The Stadium - but a week ago the
scene of frenzied activity -will be aj
forlorn, silent spot this afternoon.
No fans will shiver because of the
winter winds, and the wet snow will
cause no fumbles. For the football
season at Michigan is over until an-
Gone will be the Scarlet Scourge;
gone will be anything that even re-
sembles a football game; and gone
will be one pair of goal posts, the pair
torn down by the riotous mob that
followed the Ohio State debacle last
week. They will not be rebuilt until
spring, according to Lorenzo Thomas,
for winter, and it took his men nearly
a week to dry it sufficiently to store.
The press box particularly irritated
Mr. Thomas. "Those dirty newspap-
ermen," he remarked as he cleaned
out the press box, where the cigarette
and cigar butts of the sports writers
were piled high.
Mr. Thomas has had charge of put-
ting the Stadium to bed for the win-
ter each year since it was built, and
this year, he said, things went as
smoothly as any.
And although "The Victors" will
not be heard around the Stadium for
many months to come and although
winter winds will drift the snow into
empty stands, the field will not be
completely deserted. Carl Mahlke,
