Provokes Quarrel
Two Officers Injured In
Second Clash Yesterday
Morning
DETROIT, Dec. 4. - (J') - Patrol-
ling police guards enforced a "no
picketing" order tonight at the plant
of the Motor Products Corp. After
strike violence had brought injury to
25 persons there last night and to-
day.
Officers of the Automotive Indus-
trial Workers' Association, sponsoring
the strike, withdrew their forces af-
ter a sharp clash today as a new shift
went on duty in.the plant, and an-
nounced they planned to seek a court
injunction to establish their rights to
picket.
Leaders Address Meeting
A strike has been in progress almost
a month, but no disturbances de-
veloped until last night, when lead-
ers addressing a mass meeting of 2,-
000 workers near the plant, urged
them to march on the gates. Police
estimated that more than 500 men'
participated in the brief but bitter
clash after guards tossed tear gas
bombs into the strikers' ranks. Eight-
een strikers, two policemen and a
woman were injured, and 11 strikers
were killed.
A second clash between pickets and
police was precipitated early today
when a new shift went on duty, and
police guarding the gates ordered the
picket to retreat across the street
to avoid an encounter with the work-
ers. It was estimated 75 pickets
participated in the clash today.
Two policemen were struck by fly-
ing bricks and- :two strikers .-were
bruised when the officers swung their
sticks to drive them back to the union
headquarters a block away from the
main gates.
Production Continued
A Motor Products Corp. official,
asserting that the strike ended last
week, said the plant force was at full
strength. The plant continued at
normal production today.
Members of the Motor Products
local of the United Auto Workers'
Union, American Federation of Lab-
or affiliate, returned to work last
week. They said the Automotive In-
dustrial Workers and the Mechanics
Educational Society of America, an-
other independent union of steel, tool
and die men, had called the strike
without consulting them.
Today, however, Francis J. Dillon,
president of the A. F. of L. union,
said members of the Motor Products
Local would vote Sunday on joining
in the strike.
He criticized "the policy and tactics
now being pursued" by the company.
Mrs. Roosevelt
Holds Criticism
Of NYA Healthy

WASHINGTON, Dec. 4. - (P) -
Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt prophe-
sied tonight the Youth Administra-
tion would meet with a great deal
of criticism, which she pronounced
"understandable and very healthy."
One reason-"there are all types
of young people scattered around.
They range from younger commu-
nistS to younger D.A.R.'s. You can't
expect them to agree on just what
the national government should of-
fer to them."
She was speaking -at a meeting of
the research club composed of school
teachers and other educators of the
capital city.
"However," her argument con-
tinued, "Just as the fact that the
government is taking an interest in
them gives them something to shoot
at."

Robert Frost Is Just A Plain
American;' He Says So Himself

Poet Puzzled At Modern
[ Poetry, But He Takes No
Side On Subject
By FRED WARNER NEAL
Robert Frost, the New England
poet, is "just a plain American." He
said so himself.
The white-haired writer, who ad-
mits that he looks like a prosperous
farmer, leaned back in an easy chair
in Dean Bursley's study yesterday
and chatted about modern trends of
poetry and American literature.
Although Mr. Frost is neither for
L nor against so-called new or modern-
istic poetry-of the T. S. Eliot and
Hart Crane school - you can tell
he does not think so very much of
it. "All this new talk of free rhythm
-I have thought a great deal about
it - and I am still puzzled about
what it means," he said.
Two-Day Drive
Of Galens Nets
Total Of $1,400
Fund Will Go For Helping
Convalescing Children In
Hospital
More than $1,400 has already been
collected by Galens, honorary medical
society for juniors and seniors, in
their two-day annual Christmas drive.
The year's drive has provided the
third highest fund since the Galens
began their collections in 1928. There
is a possibility that the money col-
lected might surpass the peak year
of 1930, when the additional con-
tributions from sororities and frater-
nities are turned in.
At a meeting of the organization
held last night, the possibility of
presenting a scholarship to some boy
who has shown particularly good
work in the manual training shop
the Galens finance in the hospital
was seriouslyconsidered. sp
Dr. Reed M. Nesbit, professor of
surgery in the medical school, at-
tended the meeting and approved the
idea. If the idea goes through, Doc-
tor Nesbit will be one of the com-
mittee who will select the boy for the
scholarship.
Part of the money has already been
turned over to Miss Dorothy Ket-
cham, director of social service in the
University Hospital, and with it she
plans to start purchasing books and
periodicals for the library to be in-
stalled in conjunction with the work-
shop. Also part of the old equipment
in the shop will be replaced with new
machinery, according to John B.
Wood, president of Galens.
The annual Christmas party for
the children either convelescing or
under treatment at the hospital will
be given before Christmas, which in-
cludes a dinner and the giving out of
toys and candy.
New Maximum Of
Sun Spots Reached
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 4.- Old Soll
had his worst epidemic in years to-
day, breaking out with a flock of spots
big enough to spatter five earths
from pole to pole.
Visible to the naked eye through a
smoked glass, the spots form a cluster
160,000 miles long, near the center of
the sun's disc. They will remain two
or three days, according to Dr. Har-
ry E. Crull, assistant director of Grif-
fith observatory.

"It looks to me," he said, "as if
poetry has made a digression into
free verse. But it is going back now
to rhyme and meter. You can't get
what I mean by music of poetry,"
I he continued, "unless you throw
rhyme on meter to measure it."
Mr. Frost, when he was first asked
what he thought about modern
(trends in poetry, returned with the
question: "Do you want me to say
s that people should be unintelligible
Ion purpose?"
He viewed types of poetry as being
- on "different planes of logic. As
for me, I like different planes of
* logic," he said.
"Eliot seems easy enough to fol-
- low," Mr. Frost declared, "But Crane
is on a still different plane of logic.
- There are glimpses of intelligence
in Hart Crane," in the opinion of the
New England poet, "but they are
mainly in the logic of emotion. They
are all right, but you don't know
much what it's all about."
Mr. Frost is firm in his belief that
"American literature has come into
its own." America "definitely has
something to offer" to the world of
culture, he declared, and then smiled:
"Americans talk continually about
British literature. The British talk -
about French and Russian literature.
And God only knows what the French
and Russians do talk about."
That remark led directly to Mr.,
Frost's greatest interest aside from
his work --politics. Taking a sly dig
at the New Deal, he mentioned "un-
American tendencies in the govern-1
ment. "Our government officials
can't seem to realize," he pointed out,
"that in regard to foreign troubles,E

Ickes Charges t
Opponents With
'Do-N1Ibothingism'
Assailants Are 'Negative,'t
Secretary Of Interior
Says In Detroitt
DETROIT, Dec. 4. - ()- Harold
L. Ickes, secretary of the interior,
charged in an address here today
that opponents of the administra-
tion are "modern exponents of do-
nothingism." p
"These critics are purely negative.
They would meet a political crisist
with a slogan, a serious argumentC
with a shibboleth," he declared.t
"Whatever they may say to thec
contrary, these self-appointed cham-1
pions of our liberties would returnt
to the old order," Ickes said. "Eitherr
they possess great wealth themselvese
or they are men who, 'little broth-l
ers of the rich,' will abuse them-
selves before wealth in the posses- I
sion of others. But I warn them
that they are putting a lighted matcht
to a keg of powder when they in-
sist on returning to the old order.r
That way means inevitable disaster
for us all."
Ickes said the nation is at the1
crossroads, and will see either anj
increasing concentration of wealth
and power in the hands of "an in-
significant minority of the people at
the expense of us all, or we will hap-
pily turn our faces again toward
the original ideas of America."
"The issue," he declared, "is Fas-
cism or the America of the founding
fathers."
Ickes said he regarded Fascism
as a more imminent menace to
democracy than communism.

Washtenaw
Victorious In
'39 Elections
Vogt Defeats Farnsworth
For Class Presidency Of
LiteraryCollege
State Street Fails
To Get One Office
Gene Cook Becomes Head
Of Freshmen Engineers;
Hurd, Schuh Elected
By GUY M. WHIPPLE, JR.
The Washtenaw political machine
topped off the election season yester-
day afternoon with a decisive win
over its State Street opponent in the
freshman literary college elections,
thereby solidly establishing itself as
vote-luring king of the year.
All Washtenaw candidates were
swept through with a two-to-one
plurality. Fred Vogt, Phi Delta Theta,
defeated William Farnsworth, Phi
Kappa Psi, for president. 200 to 107.
The other tallies were as follows:
Betsy Guild Wins
Betsy Guild, Mosher-Jordan, won
over Jenny Petersen, Pi Beta Phi,
for vice-president, 199 to 109; Elean-
or French, Kappa Kappa Gamma,
was victorious over Nancy Stoning-
ton, Alpha Phi, for the post of sec-
retary, 200 to 108; and William Wre-
ford trounced Karl Hepp for treasur-
er, 205 to 104.
State Street was able to cut into
the Washtenaw hegemony but once
this year. The well-organized State
Class of '37 lost only three posts-of
treasurer and two committee posi-
tions-in winning the junior election
by the narrowest of margins. Oth-
erwise it was a Washtenaw year any
way you look at it.
The extreme affability of the en-
gineers was demonstrated in the elec-
tions this year when in more than one
case a ticket was unopposed and
merely went through the formality of
being "elected."
Voting Machines Loaned
Those elected in yesterday's engi-
neering college balloting include Gene
Cook, president; Tim Hurd, vice-
president; Charles Schuh, secretary;
and Fred Luebke, treasurer.
This fall's voting was run off flaw-
lessly, it was reported yesterday by
William R. Dixon, '36, president of
the Men's Council, which had charge
of the bulk of elections supervision.
Machines loaned to the Council by
the Automatic Voting Machine Corp.,
of Jamestown, N.Y., were used in the
literary college elections and in cer-
tain other schools and colleges with
no complaints, Dixon said.
In the junior literary college class
election, the machines were re-opened
late at night for re-tabulation in the
disputed victory of Fred DeLano over
Louis Goldberg for the post of treas-
urer. It was found that DeLano had,
beyond doubt, been the victor, the
machines banishing any thought of
subterfuge or "dirty politics."

Special Committee Makes
Plans To Raise $5,000;

Gordy, Hall To Aid
In a meeting last night of a special
committee of the Ann Arbor Com-
munity Fund, plans were made to
obtain an additional $5,000, which,
it is estimated, will put the cam-
paign for $55,000, "over the top."
Emory J. Hyde, president of 'the
University Alumni Association, will
head the commitee which was formed
Tuesday by the board of directors
of the fund.
Included in the 15 members are
Prof. Charles Gordy of the engineer-
ing college and Dr. Louis P. Hall, pro-
fessor emeritus of the dental school.
The special jobs committee will
spend today and tomorrow analyzing
what has been missed, Everett Hames,
executive secretary, stated. An ef-
fort will be made by this group to
obtain subscriptions from those who
have not yet been contacted. Inten-
sive work will begin tomorrow night,
and it is expected that a good show-
ing will be made.

Businessmen
Condemn New
Deal Policies
Swear Unequivocal Stand
Against Administration
Of Roosevelt
Business Asks For
Economic Progress
Industry Wants Protection
Of Constitution, Scores
High Taxation
NEW YORK, Dec. 4.--(3) - For-
mal parting of the ways between
American business and the New Deal
impended tonight over the social
and economic policies of the Fed-
eral government.
Forthcoming action to this effect
was learned as the 1935 Congress of
American Industry and the 40th
annual meeting of the National Man-
ufacturers' Association opened here
today.
Authoritative quarers forecast the
adoption of a 1935 "platform of
business" affirming support of the
American system of capitalist expan-
sion, economic progress, freedom of
competitive enterprise and unequivo-
cal opposition to procedure and
methods evident in New Deal poli-
cies.
Such a stand would be in direct
reversal of the platform ratified last
year, in which co-operative method
was the friendly theme.
Beliefs Voiced
It was expected that business lead-
ers, would voice belief in:
1-Maintenance of constitutional
guarantees and protection of the
American Constitution.
2-Preservation of individual en-
terprise.
3-Elimination of undue regulation
of private business.
4-Opposition to excessive taxa-
tion, unsound government financing,
and excessive Federal expenditures
beyond the normal operating ex-
penses of government.
5-Establishment of a national
currency upon a dollar of fixed gold
content.
6--Adherence to the natural theory
of "economic progress" as the best
means of social security. .
7-Adherence to the "American -
system."
The foregoing items, it was learned,
are all of tentative nature, but any '
changes were expected to be of in-
consequential nature. Adoption of
the platform is the last item of bus-
iness late tomorrow.
Social Security Act Scored
Discussion of New Deal social se-
curity measures came up late today
in an executive committee session
presided over by W. B. Bell, presi-
dent of the American Cyanamid Co.
Pending formal announcement on1
adoption of a resolution offered by
the Social Security Committee of the
Manufacturers Association, it was
understood that the committee un-
equivocally condemned Federal so-i
cial security proposals.I
They were censured as economic-i
ally and financially unsound, and
sharp criticism was directed against
the creation of an approxi-annuity
reserve. It was also understood that
the Federal Government was accused
of seeking by control of the statei
social security methods, to achieve
by indirection what was not specified
directly.
This theme was piublicly men-

tioned in an address by James A.I
Emery, general counsel of the Man-]
ufacturers Association.'

Queen Gives Ring To
Il Duce's War Chest
.ROME, Dec. 4. - (P) - Italy's
monarchs showed the people today
that they stand with Premier Mus-
solini in his fight against the 52 na-'
tions applying sanctions.
Queen Elena wrote Il Duce prom-
ising that the two royal wedding rings
would be turned over to the govern-
ment Dec. 18, the date set by Italy's
women for a collection of wedding
rings throughout the country.
The Queen's letter was understood
to have read:
"I desire you to know that among
the many wedding rings the women
of Italy will offer for the glory of
our dear and great country will be
the wedding ring of the King, a sym-
bol of affection and loyalty, together
with my ring, which I give the coun-*
try joyously."
Films Of North
Are ShownBY
Rev. Hubbard
Manatuska 'Good Enough
For People, If People
Are Good Enough'
A cinematic review of his most re-
cent voyage to the "Ice Inferno" of
Alaska - featuring seven roly-poly
puppies - was presented last night by
the Rev. Bernard Hubbard in Hill
Auditorium.
Although camera trouble cut the
film short by one reel, Father Hub-
bard showed pictures of icebergs, for-
ests, gardens, "ghost cities," and fox
farms in this far north outpost of the
United States.
Father Hubbard, attired in the
staid manner of the priesthood, told
of the geological explorations he car-
ried on last summer with three young
assistants from the University of
Santa Clara, where he is a professor
in his spare time.
The speaker was introduced by
Prof. Ralph Belknap of the geology
department.
Showing some photographs of the
Manatuska Balley colonization proj-
ect, Father Hubbard declared that
there are more dairying possibilities
in this valley than in New England.
He said that most of the persons
who had written about the Mana-
tuska settlement had never been
there, that opinions about it varied
directly with political affiliations, and
that "if the people are good enough
for the land, the land is good enough
for them."
The explorations were carried on
chiefly by means of a stainless steel
fishing vessel, which successfully
weathered the hazard of storms, ice
floes ,and crumbling glaciers.
Father Hubbard's plans for the
near future call for a stay of a year-
and-a-half on King's Island.
Examples of glacial grooves and
scratches formed recently by receding
ice were shown by Father Hubbard.

League Plans Agreement
With Mussolini Before
AdoptingOilEmbargo
Laval, Hoare Will
Meet On Saturday
Prime Minister Of France
Talks With Ambassador
Of Italy OnQuestion
PARIS, Dec. 4.-(5P)-A joint An-
glo-French request to Premier Mus-
solini to submit his peace plans be-
fore the League of Nations is forced
to vote an oil embargo was reported
as a possibility tonight in informed
circles.
This move might be drafted when
8Ji, Sam-iel Hoare, British Foreign
Secretary, confers with Premier La-
val here Saturday on the war situa-
tion.
Late today M. Laval received Vit-
torio Cirutti, the Italian ambassador,
presumably to discuss the French de-
sire that Il Duce take some steps to-
ward a settlement.
Only stony silence thus far has met
Laval's efforts to have Rome indicate
on what basis it will negotiate or even
whether Italy is ready to negotiate at
all.
Laval is said to favor a joint note
with the British minister in the be-
lief a further sign of Franco-British
solidarity would make Il Duce more
willing to disclose his desires.
Although it was suggested in some
quarters that Laval might ask for a
week's delay in application of the oil
embargo, an informed source said
"the embargo undoubtedly will be
imposed."
Differences of opinion existed be-
tween French officials and certain
diplomats as to the possibility of a
territorial concession to Italy to end
the war.
Officials said the League could
grant it nothing but economic ad-
vantages under an international
agreement.
Two strong columns of well-armed
Ethiopians clashed again with Italy's
invaders on the northern African War
Front Wednesday in brisk skirmishes.
The battles strengthened Italian be-
lief that a major engagement was
imminent.
Four Italian white soldiers were
slain at an outpost battle at Debri,
southwest of Makale. Farther to the
west, the enemies clashed again, with
unstated casualties.
Fascist military strategists said the
foe included both the Ethiopian
Northern Army and European- equip-
ped regulars from Addis Ababa.
These forces, they declared, were in-
tent on turning the Italian flank.
Italian headquarters said that
Europeans had equipped a munitions
factory at Addis Ababa to manufac-
ture hand grenades, airplane bombs,
cannon, anti-aircraft projectiles and
other war materials.
Laval Cabinet
Threatened By
Fascism Issue
PARIS, Dec. 4.- (I') - Premier
Pierre Laval's government faced a
new threat of overthrow on the tense
"Fascist" league issue tonight.
Edouard Herriot, former premier,
told his Radical Socialist colleagues
that he would withdraw from the
cabinet unless a majority of his party
is satisfied with the Premier's action
against semi-military leagues such
as Col. Francois de la Rocque's "Croix
de Feu."
Herriot's declaration was, believed

an indication that M. Laval must ac-
tually satisfy the Radical Socialists
on the rightist league question, in-
stead of seeking a vote of confidence
by a narrow majority.
The Chamber of Deputies will re-
sume its discussion tomorrow. Many
believed that M. Laval would make
the strongest promises possible to
keep a majority of the Radical So-
cialists in line. The latter, prepon-
derant in the Chamber, are demand-
ing "disarming and dissolution" of
organizations such as the Veterans of

Graduate School Will Rest On
Former Cemetery, Circus Lot

Expert At Three Professions,
Hubbard Says He's Unromantic

By F. CLAYTON HEPLER
Some peculiar facts concerning the
history of Ann Arbor, perhaps pro-
phetic in a way, have come to light
with the razing of the two blocks
bounded by Huron, Twelfth, Wash-
ington and Thayer Streets on which
the new Graduate School will be con-
structed.
Few people know that at one time
the block directly behind the League
was once rented to passing circuses
for a place to give their performances.
The grounds were at that time a suf-
ficient distance from the city so that
the gay throngs would not disturb any
of the worthy burghers.
At a later date University tennis

been occupying the dwelling until
lately when the University acquired
it.
William Groves bought the block
from E. W. Morgan, a pioneer realtor
in this section.
The only Jewish cemetery in Ann
Arbor was established on the Groves
land about 1900 by the Fantell and
Sondiehn families, prominent Jew-
ish residents at that time. The en-
trance to the burial grounds was
placed adjacent to the Groves home.
Only 10 or 12 internments were made
in the grounds surrounded by a wood-
picketed fence, and the coffins were
later transferred to another local
cemetery by Mr. Groves and his
brother. A. D. Groves, execntors of

By JOSEPHINE CAVANAUGH
Bernard R. Hubbard - priest, ex-
plorer, college professor -is not a
romantic figure. Or so he says.
Father Hubbard denied that he is
a more romantic character because
of the combination of priest and ex-
plorer. "I won't admit that," he
said. "I am merely doing some mod-
est research along the line of ge-
ology."
But it is hard to agree with him
considering certain features in his
personality and experiences. Since
childhood he had determined to be-
come a priest, he said, but his col-
lege education had led him to be-
come intensely interested in geology.

ferent denominations are a bad in-
fluence on the Alaskan people, he
replied. "I refuse to dispute any
man's statement." He laughingly
added thathe was at the very min-
ute of the interview wearing Sir
Wilfred's coat.
The statement that he is "definite~-
ly not a missionary," seemed a sur-
prising one to hear Father Hubbard
make. But he explained that his
purpose was not to convert non-be-
lievers, but to do some "modest ge-
ological research."
If one were asked to describe the
character and personality of Father
Hubbard, he could well sum it up in
three adjectives - technical, alert,
and human. Technical, because he
