Major Football

Commercialists
President Of Notre Dame
Demands Retraction Or
Proof OfCharges
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 10. - (/P)
-George Owen, Sr., a college profes-
sor and father of the former Harvard
star halfback, declared today "every
college in the country that has a
major football team is indulging in
commercialism."
Owen, a professor at Massachusetts-
Institute of Technology, made his
charges before the Cambridge In-
dustrial Association.
Professor Owen branded Ohio State
and Notre Dame as the "greatest of-
fenders" and included Harvard in
the list of colleges he asserted "hired"
players.
He said the ordinary "pay" of a
promising athlelete hired for football
was $1,000 or a "soft job" which he
termed "the merest sham to cover the
real transaction."
Professor Owen asserted:
"I advocate hiring college athletics
just as you would hire ordinary lab-
orers. It would be honest and the
public doesn't care who the players
are or where they come from."
SOUTH BEND, Ind., Dec. 10. U-03)
- The Rev. Father John F. O'Hara,
president of the University of Notre
Dame, in a telegram today called up-
on Prof. George Owen, Sr., of the
Massachusetts Institute of Tech-
nology, to either disavow a statement
that Notre Dame football players are
hired, reported to have been made in
an address today, or prove the
charges.

PEIPING, Dec. 10. -- () - A Man-
chukuan army was reported by Chin-
ese sources today' to have invaded
southeastern Chahar province and
fought a battle with special police in
which many persons were killed.
Unable to check the tanks and air-
planes which the invaders were said
to have used, the defending police
withdrew into the city of Kuyuan, the
reports from Kalgan stated.
The area was said to be in a virtual
state of siege, with the ever-expand-
ing Manchukuan empire holding a
new piece of North China territory.
Hostilities were reported to have halt-
ed.
Lieut.-Col. Tan Takahashi, Jap-
anese military attache at Peiping,
was understood to have urged the
head of the Japanese Kwantung army
to request Manchukuo to cease the
invasion.
In reply to representations made
by Chinese authorities here, Taka-
hashi was reported to have stated
that the troop movement was due to
a faulty distribution of police in the
demilitarized zone in North China.
Students of several North China
universities, including the American-
supported Yen Chiang and Tsiang
Hua institutions, refused to attend
classes as a protest again detention
of more than a score of students who
demonstrated against Japan yester-
day.
The Yen Chiang men students sub-
stituted military training for their-
regular classwork, while the women
students studied nursing and first
,id.
This protest followed an angry
demonstration in Peiping Monday by
6,000 students, who shouted against
the autonomy movement in North
China and demanded mobilization of
the Army and Navy for war on Japan.
Takahashi made strong represen-
tations in a call on Mayor Chin Teh
Chun, declaring that the demonstra-
tions were instigated by the Amer-
ican-educated Chinese.

To Start Soon
Funds Marked For High
School Addition Diverted
Jo Project
Construction of the city's proposed
new junior high school for the west
side, to be located in Waterworks
Park, will begin within 10 days, Su-
perintencient of Schools Otto W.
Haisley announced yesterday.
The announcement was made after
the receipt of a telegram from Dean-
Emeritus Mortimer W. Cooley, now
State PWA administrator, informing

Superintendent Haisley that Federal
authorities had approved the request
of the board of education here to di-
vert the funds earmarked for a high
school addition to build the new jun-
ior high school.
Contracts for the junior high
school, which must, under PWA rul-
ing, be let by Dec. 15, may, accord-
ing to Mr. Haisley, be let at the
board of education meeting at 7:30
tonight. Three bids for the general
construction were submitted to a
committee of the board yesterday
by contractors.
The school is expected to cost about
$325,000, of which the Federal gov-
ernment will contribute $130,000.
Fourteen class rooms, a gymnasium,
and an auditorium are planned for
the school building.
Mr. Haisley, however, said that if
as with similar PWA projects in the
past, costs exceed the original esti-
mates because of rising construction
prices, changes may have to be made
in the plans to eliminate some part
of the construction now contemplat-

Peace Plan
Is Dropped
ByEngland'
British Popular Rebellion
Forces Withdrawal Of
Approval To Settlement
Modified Proposal
Is Quickly Drafted
Eden Asks For Latitude In
Discharging Duties At
League Meetings
LONDON, Dec. 10. -(P)--Sharp
rebellion in the Commons forced the
British government today to with-
draw approval of the Italo-Ethiopian
peace plan drafted by Britain and
France last week-end. A modified
proposal was prepared late today and
dispatched to Rome and Addis Ababa.
British opposition, resting on a
broad popular base, extended into
Conservative ranks in the Commons
and into the Cabinet. It was based
on the contention that Britain was
betraying the League and allowing
Il Duce to dictate his own terms of
peace.
Small Nations Against Duce
The sentiment among the smaller
nations was that Italy, as the ag-
gressor, should be forced to make
greater concessions for peace. Other-
wise, they felt that large power
would be encouraged to prey upor
weaker countries with virtual assur-
ance that other large powers would
pave the way for their escaping with-
out heavy penalties.
In defending the modified peace
proposal, Anthony Eden, minister for
League affairs, outlined its general
terms before the Commons tonight.
Although he refused to divulge de-
tails, he said that the plan embraced
a mutually advantageous exchange
of Italo-Ethiopian territory, League
assistance to Ethiopia and establish-
ment of a zone of colonization foi
an Italian-chartered company.
Laval Supports Plan
In Paris, Premier Pierre Laval said
that France and Britain were in ac-
cord on the new peace proposal and
indicated that it also would allow
Ethiopia an outlet to the sea through
Assab, Eritrea, return of the Holy City
of Aksum in Tigre Province, the re-
mainder of which would go to Italy,
and the ceding of Ethiopian territory
to Italy in the South.
Eden begged the Commons not to
bind him at forthcoming Geneva
meetings on sanctions "to any par-
ticular forms of procedure."
"I ask for latitude and for confi-
dence of the House of Commons in
the discharge of my duties," he said,
declaring that the Government's pol-
icy remains based "on its member-
ship in the League of Nations."
Escaped Inmates
Sought In County
Washtenaw County sheriff's offic-
ers last night were seeking three in-
mates who escaped from the State
Prison at Jackson at 8 p.m. by scaling
the wall. The three fugitives were
Nelson Silvester, 27, Sam Lied, 25,
and Leslie Mauer, 29. Mauer is a
lifer.
Authorities in Jackson expressed
the opinion that the fleeing prisoners
had headed toward Ann Arbor. Dep-
uties Clyde Bennett and Alex Schlupe
were searching for them on US 12

west of Ann Arbor, while State Police
cars were concentrated in the area
around the intersection of US 112
and US 23.

Campus Views With

Magazine Vendors
Monopoly is on the verge of rearing
its ugly head on the campus. If pres-
ent tendencies continue, it won't be
long before you will have no choice
-- either you buy your weekly maga-
zine from the one vendor, or else you
walk half the length of the diagonal
if you want your magazine.
Yesterday the Saturday Evening
Post came out, and there was the us-
ual rush of small boys to sell it. Most
of them rushed to the circle in front
of the library. Such a state of affairs
soon became intolerable, as no one
could dispose completely of his wares.
About 4 p.m. one of the boys had
an idea that has made a fortune for
many an enterprising individual. He
was heard to offer one of his most
obstreperous competitors 25 cents for
said competitor's retirement from the
scene. And it seems that he succeed-
ed. Only the approach of darkness
(after this transaction had taken
some half hour of old-fashioned dick-
ering) prevented the ingenious busi-
nessman from carrying his scheme to
a logical conclusion.
Choral Union
Presents Fifth
Concert Today
Koussevitzky To Conduct
Symphony Orchestra In
11th Local Appearance
One of the largest crowds of the
current season is expected to attend
the fifth Choral Union concert, to be
given by the Boston Symphony Or-
chestra at 8:15 p.m. today in Hill
Auditorium. Serge Koussevitzky, re-
nowned' Russian conductor, will lead
the group for the fifth time before
an Ann Arbor audience.
The orchestra will be making its
11th local appearance tonight, hav-
ing been one of the outstanding at-
tractions of Choral Union Concert
series for many years.
Tickets Still Available
Tickets for tonight's concert are
still on sale at the offices of the School
of Music on Maynard Street and
President Charles A. Sink announced
yesterday that there are still a few
seats left in all locations. The ad-
vance sale to date has been one of
the heaviest for a concert this sea-
son.
President Sink also repeated his
warning that all patrons should ar-
,ve at the auditorium in time to be
in their seats by 8:15 p.m., as the
doors will be closed at that time and
there will be no further seating until
the conclusion of the first number,
which lasts about 20 minutes. Ticket
stubs will be required for readmission
if any persons leave the building dur-
ing intermission.
Out Of Town Group Expected
In their concert tonight, the mem-
bers of the Boston Symphony will be
making their only appearance in the
State during their present tour, and
for this reason a large number of
patrons from all parts of the state
are expected to attend.
The program for tonight's concert
is as follows:
Handel, Concerto for Strings and
Wind Orchestras in F Major; Sibe-
lius, "Pohjola's Daughter," Symph-
onic Fantasia, Op. 49; Ravel, "La
Valse," Choregraphic Poem; and
Strauss, "Ein Heldenleben," Tone
Poem, Op. 40.

File Motion
To Dismiss
Cohen Suit
Lack Of Jurisdiction Is
Given As Reason For
QuashingPetition
University's Stand
Otltined By Burke
Action Arose From Refusal
To Admit Four Students
This Fall
A motion for the dismissal of the
suit for readmission entered by Dan-
iel Cohen, former engineering stu-
dent, will be filed by the University
this morning in the Federal District
Court in Detroit, according to George
Burke, attorney for the University.
Answering for the Regents and
President Ruthven, respondents in
the suit, Burke, David H. Crowley,
State attorney-general, and Herbert
P. Orr, special assistant attorney-
general, cited lack of jurisdiction in
asking that the petition for a writ of
mandamus against the University be
dismissed. Cohen, with three others,
William Fisch, Joseph Feldman, and
Leon Ovsiew, were asked during the
summer by President Ruthven not to
return this fall because they were
"interfering with the work of the Uni-
versity and the work of other stu-
dents."
Jurisdiction Doubted
Patrick H. O'Brien, former State
attorney-general, and Nicholas V.
Olds, counsel for Cohen retained by
the American Civil Liberties Union,
charged violation of constitutional
rights and discrimination against Co-
hen and the other three students, who
were members of the National Stu-
dent League.
The motion for dismissal states
that the jurisdiction of the Federal
district court over original suits at
common law or in equity does not ex-
tend to original actions of manda-
mus; that the real defendent in the
case is the State of Michigan, and
hence the trying of the case here is
prohibited by the Eleventh Amend-
ment; that there is no diverse citi-
,enship of the parties, since the State
of Michigan is not a citizen; and
that there is no real Federal ques-
tion involving the Federal Constitu-
tion.
University Stand Given
Regarding the last point, the mo-
tion states that the privilege of at-
tending the State University comes
not from Federal sources but is given
by the State; and that the refusal of
the privilege in this case by the prop-
er University officials does not con-
stitute a taking of property without
due process of law.
The position of the University in
the controversy was outlined last
night by Mr. Burke, who said:
"In this matter, as I view it, the
question, if any, will be whether by
court action, the University authori-
ties may be compelled to accept as a
student, one whose attitude toward
the institution has been and is such
as to cause the authorities to feel
that his continued attendance would
not be for the welfare of the Univer-
sity and the student body as a whole.
'Freedom Not Involved'
"It has been my thought that in
matters of this kind, the opinion of
the responsible officers of the Univer-
sity must govern, and that the state,
having placed in them the responsi-

bility for the welfare of the institu-
tion, gave them also the power to
enforce such rules as would effec-
tuate that purpose. The state not
only charges them with the respon-
sibility of maintaining the institution,
but, also, the funds to that end. It is
unlikely that the courts, Federal or
State, will care to assume the added
responsibility that would come with
passing upon the eligibility of stu-
dents.
"The issue of freedom of speech or
freedom of legitimate action is not
involved, there having been no at-
tempt to curtail either. However,
membership in organizations, frater-
nal, religious, social, athletic or po-
litical, should give to no individual
superior rights or privileges over any
other student of the University. If
such were the case, the thousands
of earnest, sincere, and hard working
men and women on the campus

Many people not interested in phys-'
ical problems were familiar with such
tubes, for they were sometimes dis-
played at evening lawn parties to de-
light the guests with their beautiful
iridescence. No one, however, even
vaguely suspected that a revolution-
ary discovery was in the offing as
the result of studying these queer,
glowing glass tubes.
But Roentgen's interest in these
phenomena led him to intensive in-
vestigations, which at last yielded
the discovery of a new and peculiar
type of ray which he called the X-
ray. These rays, he. found, were pro-
duced in addition to the fascinating
shades of visible light which many
others had seen. This new form of
radiation he then showed to be cap-
able of penetrating substances opaque
to ordinary light.
Many uses have been found for this
type of radiation, of which undoubt-
edly the best known and most wide-
spread is that of medical diagnosis.
More recently this physical agent has
found a valuable place in the treat-

Half Of Freshmnen Have Parents
Who Never Attended A College

From figures released by the Uni-
versity statistician, it is apparent that
those who never had the opportunity
to get a college education certainly
want their children to have that ad-
vantage.
Out of a total enrollment of 1,492
freshmen in all colleges for the fall
of 1935, 50.13 per cent, or 745, were
sent by parents who had no college
affiliations whatsoever.
Approximately 46 per cent, there-
fore, or 690 of the 1,492 cases, had
parents who had at one time or an-
other attended a college or a uni-
versity. Fifty-four of the freshmen
did not answer the question as it was

from the University of Maine, to
Stanford University in Palo Alto, Cal.
Of the total 1,492 cases, 187, or
12.53 per cent of the freshmen had a
father, mother, or two parents who
attended Michigan. One hundred and
sixty one, or 10.79 per cent of the
total number, had parents who had
graduated from the University. Those
who attended Michigan, which in-
cludes both those who graduated and
those who attended one semester or
longer, totaled 348.
Of the 161 cases in which parents
were graduates of the University,
both parents were graduates in 28
cases. More of the fathers of the
