liar' Cry
Furniture Manufacturer
Hurls Charge At Berry,
Industrial Coordinator
Hint Break-Up Was
Plotted By Industry
'I'll Make You Eat It, Eat
It, Eat It' Is Reply To
Accusation Of 'Liar'
WASHINGTON, Dec. 9. - () - In
the tumultuous aftermath of a shout-
ed "You're a liar," Maj. George L.
Berry today firmly resisted an effort
to scuttle his plans for forming a Na-
tional Industrial Council intended to
help government hasten recovery.
Delegates to his Conference of In-
dustry milled about in noisy confu-
sion as Berry refused to permit a
speech by John W. O'Leary, former
president of the Chamber of Com-
merce of the United States and
squelched a motion that O'Leary be
made the chairman of a committee of
business men to survey the situation.
How deeply the "breakup" effort
was rooted in organized big business
was a matter of conjecture, but it
was generally known beforehand that
such an attempt would be made. Lat-
er several sub-groups of the confer-
ence turned down the National Coun-
cil idea.
Formation Of Body Doubtful
Since these groups included such
essential sectors of industry as ma-
chinery and equipment, makers of
mill products, structural materials
and the like, some thought the for-
mation of the Council problematical,
to say the least.
But Berry, as National industrial
co-ordinator, the director of what is
left of the old NRA, renewed his ap-
peal for the creation of such an or-
ganization when the day was over,
with a radio address asserting that
co-operation between business and
the government was essential if the
depression was to be conquered.
The more than 2,000 delegates met
en masse this morning to hear a
statement of purposes from Berry.
The plan was that they should
then split up into small round-table
groups composed of representatives
of related units of industry.
Demands Recognition
But before this could be done,
O'Leary was on his feet demanding
recognition. With the delegates
startig to disperse, one proposed
that O'Leary be made the head of
a committee to look into the situation.
It was lost in confusion and loud
shouts of "no."
"Very sorry," Berry roared, cup-
ping his hands, "but it doesn't go
A. P. Haake, of Chicago, represent-
ing the National Furniture Manufac-
turers Association, demanded recog-
nition. It was denied. He asked the
"right of an American citizen" to talk
"You know you were sent here to
dynamite this meeting and I'm not
going to let you do it," Berry said.
"You're an unqualified liar," shout-
ed Haake.
"You're another, and if you come
up here I'll make you eat it, eat it,
eat it," Berry responded.

There was an uproar. Members of
the labor delgation shouted "sit
down, sit down." Berry stayed on
the platform, Haake on the floor.
Tri-Delts' Visitor Skips
Before Police Arrive
It was in the wee small hours at
the police department Monday morn-
ing when the usually silent switch-
board buzzed. The desk sergeant an-
swered the call.
"This is the Tri-Delt sorority at 718
Tappan Ave. calling," complained a
sweet young voice. "There's a man
in the house!"
"I'll take care of that right away,"
answered the police sergeant, and
countered by sending Officer Gains-
ley, Smith, Michelson and Goken-
bach to visit the girls. The first call-
er, however, had left by the time they

91 Students Seek Jobs, Homes
As Graduate School Moves In

Several Will Lose Jobs At
Freeman's, Perry's, At
Close Of Semester
Ninety-one students will either be
forced to find a new place to live
or a new place to work because the
University has acquired an additional
block for the new building of the
Rackham School of Graduate Studies,
a survey conducted by The Daily
Of the total, 49 must find dif-
ferent living quarters and 42 must
locate new jobs. Most of the num-
ber who have to find rooms have
already moved out of their first quar-
ters while most of those who had jobs
in the eating places in the block
will keep their same positions until
the close of the first semester.
Seventeen girls who lived in two
League Houses, most of whom have
already vacated, also had to move
because the University bought the
new property.
Two Eating Houses In Blok
There was a total of 35 housing
units in the block, this including
the apartments, eating places, and
vacant properties.
There were two eating houses where
students worked. One was Free-
man's Boarding House, which em-
ployed 40 students, and the other was
Perry's cafe, which formerly em-
ployed 11 students. The proprietor
of the cafe stated that as a result
of the acquisition of the first block
early in the fall, his business fell off
badly because so many students
moved to other parts of the district.
He employed at first 11 students, but
at the present time employs only
five. Both the cafe and Freeman's
will remain open until the close of
the first semester, unless both pay
rent to the University by the month
to stay open until June.
17 Good Apartments
In contrast to the first block,
where there was but a small num-
ber of apartments, there are 17 in the
second block. All are in good condi-
tion and of the number 12 were lo-
cated1 in a structure built within the
last three or four years.
Most of the property owners in the
block grumbled very little about
having to move. The proprietor of one
of the apartment houses stated that
he was "perfectly satisfied with the
agreement with the University."
"Besides," he added, "what couldi
we do but go along with the state?
Some of the people around here were
yelling about the offers they got for
their property but these were cer-1

Students Riot
Against Japan
PEIPING, China, Dec. 9.-((P)-
Six thousand students angrily dem-
onstrated against the North China
autonomy movement today and de-
manded mobilization of the Army and
Navy for war on Japan.
Their demonstration, finally sup-
pressed, immediately brought a for-
mal Japanese protest.
Lieut. Col. Tan Takahashi, Japan-
ese military attache here, made
strong representations in a call on
Mayor Chin Teh Chun, declaring]
that the demonstrations were insti-
gated by American-educated Chinese.
The students demonstration was'
the first such event in years. Thirty
of them were arrested and many were
hurt in a clash with police.

who'got gypped is comparatively
No special notices have been issued
to the owners, it was found, but the
agreement reads that all properties,
except the two eating places will be
vacated by the first of January.
The Ann Arbor Trust Company ne-
gotiated with the property owners
after an appraiser had been sent to
every individual. The company set-
tled with the property owners sep-
arately and then the company dealt
directly with the Rackham Fund
The work on the second block will
start the first of the new year, but
the exact time the University ad-
ministration expects to be able to
have work start on the building con-
struction is highly conjectural. The
labor of razing to the ground the
buildings in the first block acquired
in the fall is progressing fast, two
houses having been demolished and
all but one having been vacated and
partially worked on.
$1,357 In New
Pledges Added
To Fund Drive
$43,682 Total Reached;
University Group Nears
Sum Given Last Year
Additional pledges of $1,357.92 were
announced yesterday by auditors for
the Ann Arbor Community Fund in
their drive for $55,000 to finance so-
cial and welfare work during the
coming year. The total amount
pledged is now $43,682.92.
The Junior Chamber of Commerce,
meeting last night at the Commerce
Building, completed plans for secur-
ing pledges from those whose cards
had been returned because they had
not been contacted by regular work-
ers in the formal drive.
The special committee, organized
to secure further subscriptions from
those who probably do not under-
stand the purpose of the campaign
and are able to give larger sums, has
already started its work. Announce-
ment of a pledge from this group is
expected the latter part of the week.
Contributions from the special, in-
dustrial, general and University di-
visions comprised the pledges report-
ed yesterday, the latter group giving
over $200. A total of $16,740.59 has
been reported by all the units of the
University to date. This is less than
$300 short of the sum contributed
last year, and all reports are not yet

Bruno' s Plea
For Review
Carpenter's Chances Of
Escaping Chair Narrow
After One-Word Verdict
Defense Considers
New Trial Demand
New Execution Date For
Hauptmann Will Be Set
By Judge Within Week
WASHINGTON, Dec. 9. - (IP) -
Bruno Richard Hauptmann's chances
of escaping the electric chair were
definitely narrowed today when the1
Supreme Court, in a one-word ver-
dict, refused to review his convic-
tion for the kidnap-murder of tiny
Charles Augustus Lindbergh, Jr.
The one word was "Denied."
Only two avenues remained open
to the former Bronx carpenter and
one-time German army machine gun-
ner. One is an appeal for clemency
to the New Jersey Board of Pardons.
The second is a petition for a new
trial if fresh evidence can be found.
IHauptmann Quiet
Hauptmann's counsel promptly as-
serted at Trenton, N. J., that the de-
fense was considering asking for a
new trial on the basis of "evidence"
not yet disclosed. In the death cell
there the German himself received
the news quietly. Still asserting his
innocence, he was described as smil-
ing when he said:
"Well, sorry you couldn't bring me
any better news."
"I do know that despite everything
he will come home again," was the
verbal reaction of Hauptmann's wife,
Supreme Court Justice Thomas W.
Trenchard, who presided at Haupt-
mann's trial, will set a new execution
date within the next week, legal au-
thorities at Trenton believe.
The law requires that the date shall
not be earlier than four weeks nor
more than eight weeks after the day
a new death warrant is signed.
May Apply To Board
Once a new date has been fixed,
Hauptmann's attorneys may make
application to the Board of Pardons
for clemency.
The drama that many sought in
the Supreme Court's action here was
lacking. Most of the crowd that
packed the sumptuous court room of
the new and shining marble building,
in fact, had no knowledge whatever
:f the high tribunal's refusal to aid
the convicted kidnaper. They might
as well have been a thousand miles
The decision was announced at the
top of the first of three sheets of
mimeographed "orders" handed to
newspapermen by court attaches. It
merely gave the title of the case
"Hduptmann vs. New Jersey"-- and
then said: "Denied."

His recital of triumphs claimed for

Will You Cooperate?
"The plan of The Michigan Daily to publish a Goodfellow
number for the purpose of raising money to assist the needy I con-
sider a very worthy one. Most of us know of cases of real distress,
and this method should commend itself to all of those who would
like to lend assistance..
-President Alexander G. Ruthven.
"Christmas comes to us as a test of our thought for others,
especially the needy. Sometimes we fail in this test by not recogniz-
ing the opportunity, and it is forever lost. The Daily gives us a
gentle reminder."
-Junius E. Beal, Regent of the University.
"I am in hearty accord with the proposed plan for raising funds
to be used for the benefit of needy students and of the under.
privileged children of Ann Arbor. Anything which the student body
through its fraternities, sororities and unorganized members can
do, will be greatly appreciated by the beneficiaries.
"The plan, as outlined in The Daily seems to meet the situation
in a most satisfactory manner and to avoid the disadvantages of in-
dividual efforts in this field. I sincerely hope that the project will
meet with the support and success which it warrants."
-J. A. Bursey, Dean of Students.
"I believe that as an example of the good social service and of
good citizenship the project which The Daily is sponsoring is admir-
able and deserves the whole-hearted support of students and their
-Alice C. Lloyd, Dean of Women.
"The proposal to issue a special Christmas edition of The
Michigan Daily, thetproceeds of which are to be used to render
assistance to needy students and destitute families, will, I am con-
fident, meet with enthusiastic approval. With the generous support
of the various campus organizations, of the student body as a whole,
and of the faculty, the Goodfellow Edition should provide a fund
that will permit many, through giving and receiving, to enjoy more
fully the spirit of the Christmas season."
--Edward H. Kraus, Dean of the Literary College.
"The Daily Goodfellow Fund is going to make possible real
family Christmas celebrations in many Ann Arbor homes. Children
will be able to hang up their stockings and receive the gifts which
you have formerly given them two weeks before Christmas, just as
if Santa Claus had left them there.
"Your money will in this way reach more children than it has
ever done before, will give them more lasting pleasure and will serve
the double purpose of making it possible for parents to seem to give
these gifts to their children."
-Maybelle H. Whitney, President Family Welfare Bureau.

"From the review of many family problems I am convinced of
the harm that comes from misdirected charity. The care of family
social problems which involve children requires information and
judgment. These child problems are likely to be badly handled when
the chief consideration is the emotional satisfaction of a giver.
"As a member of the Family Welfare Board I shall be much
pleased to see students make their donations to the responsible agent
for proper sharing among under-privileged children of Ann Arbor."
-Dr. Warren Forsythe, Director Univ. Health Service.
Member of Board, Family Welfare Bureau.

"The Christmas parties given by many fraternities and sororities
have been important events in the lives of needy children. No one
could criticize the spirit that has inspired them. But as a method
of meeting the very great need that continues to exist among many
poor families they are clearly ineffective. The Family Welfare
Bureau exists for the purpose of organizing the limited resources
available in the community for caring for numbers of families that
are still on the margin of subsistence. If cash gifts to the Family
Welfare Bureau can take the place of entertainment for a few se-
lected children, there can be no doubt that real needs will be cared
for in a far more systematic and effective way. The program of The
Daily deserves the support of all members of the University com-
-Prof. J. P. Dawson, Law School,

"The very fact that thousands of heads of families are being
transferred from direct relief to WPA in this county means that
many of those families will between now and Christmas receive only
about $28 in actual cash. From this they must pay rent, fuel, grocery
and clothing bills. This will be the first cash many of these families
will have seen in two years. It is quite evident that this small wage
will soon be expended for the bare necessities of living. Therefore
The Daily Goodfellow Fund will make possible gifts and clothing
and real cheer for the children in these families."

local children, and destitute families.
President Ruthven, Regent Junius
Beal, Deans Joseph A. Bursley, Alice
C. Lloyd, and Edward H. Kraus, as
well as University and local sociol-
ogical authorities agreed in urging
campus support of the project.
Fraternity, sorority and dormitory

announcing the plan and asking co-
operation. The letters are signed by
the following student leaders, in ad-
dition to Deans Lloyd and Bursley:

The letter appeals to heads of stu-
dent groups to select one or two stu-
dents to handle distribution within
the group. An award will be given
by The Daily to the organization or
student group which shows the great-
est cooperative spirit in the campaign.
Senior honor societies are meeting

sale of the issue.
The money which is gained through
the sale of the papers and from the
advertising which is carried in the
issue will form a special Goodfellow
Fund which will assist needy stu-
dents through the office of the Dean
of Students, and will give aid to chil-
dren in need and destitute families
through the agency of the Family
Welfare Bureau. Through these
means, the Goodfellow Fund leaders
hope to eliminate duplication and
embarrassment to recipients of aid.
The letter announcing the plan
reads as follows:
Assistance Solicited
"Many fraternities, sororities, and
dormitories have traditionally ob-
served the Christmas season with
parties for unfortunate children and
with direct assistance to destitute
families. Highly commendable though
this effort is, the results have too
frequently been unfortunate: first,
because direct relief is often embar-
rassing to the recipient, and second,
because some children were getting
four sweaters and others none.
"This year, to remedy these diffi-
culties and to include the entire stu-
dent body in these humane efforts,
The Daily is issuing a special Christ-
mas Goodfellow Edition on Monday,
Dec. 16, to be sold to students, fac-
ulty, alumni, and townspeople. The
proceeds from the sale of this edi-
tion will be used to aid needy under-
graduates, through the office of the
Dean of Students, as well as children
and worthy families, through the
local Family Welfare Bureau.
"We earnestly solicit your assist-
ance in planning this project. In
addition, we ask that you assist in
arranging for the distribution of these
special Goodfellow Dailies to mem-
bers of your group. The fraternity,
sorority, or dormitory showing the
most cooperative spirit will be recog-
nized by an award to be presented by
The Daily."
