To Be Or Not To Be ...



Peace Is
In Geneva
Cessation Of Hostilities Is
Hinted; Mussolini Views
Plans With Doubt
Foreign Control Of
EthiopiaIs Urged
Duce's Answer Expected
After Fascist Council
Predictions of a complete cessation
of hostilities in Ethiopia came out of
Geneva last night as Mussolini, in
Rome, continued to view the Franco-
British peace plan with doubt.
GENEVA, Dec. 14.- (P) - A com-
plete cessation of hostilities was said
privately by several delegates to the
League of Nations tonight to be a
necessary part of the inauguration of
any Italo-Ethiopian peace negotia-
This proposal came forward in an
undersurface struggle over the peace
plan advanced by France and Great
Britain. The smaller powers main-
tained that any concessions to Italy
might mean the death knell of the
League and of collective security.
A belief appeared to be growing
that Ethiopia will be put under some
form of foreign guidance - primarily
one of the League supervision -but
that the League council cannot go on
record as approving the Franco-
British peace plan.
Meanwhile the question of an oil
embargo has been laid aside.
ROME, Dec. 14. -WP) -Premier
Mussolini showed a persistent cool-
ness toward the Franco-British peace
plan and informed sources expressed
doubt tonight of the formula's suc-
Plain dissatisfaction with the terms
was shown in several ways and Il
Duce -asked for "clarification.".
Since the proposals were put for-
ward as a "basis for discussion," Mus-
solini may accept this, but informed
sources said he would never settle on
the lines offered..
I Duce's answer to Paris and Lon-
don is expected after a midnight ses-
sion of the Fascist grand council next
JIJIGA, Ethiopia, Dec. 14. - P) -
Dr. Robert W. Hockman, twenty-
eight-year-old American missionary
to Ethiopia and active Red Cross
worker, was blown to bits yesterday
at Daggah Bur, on the southern front,
while examining an unexploded Ital-
ian bomb, it was learned today.
Since the outbreak of hostilities
Dr. Hockman has worked untiringly
for the Ethiopian Red Cross. He
established the first medical unit on
the front.

Hauptiann Learns
Death Time Calmly
TRENTON, N. J., Dec. 14. - (P) -
Bruno Richard Hauptmann calmly
received the news today that the week
of Jan. 13 had been set for his death
in the electric chair for the kidnap I
murder of Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr.
An unnamed prison guard, dele-
gated by Col. Mark 0. Kimberling,
principal keeper, broke the news to
the condemned man.

As Heyliger Stars
Buysse's Blind Shots Only
Weapon That Puzzles A
Strong Varsity Defense
Michigan's Varsity basketball and
Hockey teams both gained victories in
homeaappearances last night.
Coach Franklin Cappon's rangy
basketball five came back strong in
the second half to hand the Michigan
State cagers a 35-24 trimming, while
the hockey sextet opened its season
with a hard-fought 5 to 4 win over
the London A. C. squad.
A second-half drive which netted
21 points gave Michigan a 35-24 cage
victory over the Spa tans of Michi-
gan State last night in Yost Field
Playing without big John Gee, who
was sent to the University Health
Service yesterday afternoon with a'
severe cold,the Wolverines found
themselves only after a first half
which ended with the score 15-14
against them, and settled down dur-
ing the second period to offensive
play about John Townsend and tight
defensive play which kept the Spar-
tans from working the ball into posi-
tion for set plays.
George Rudness, with two baskets
and five foul throws was high point
man for Michigan while Maurice
Buysse, State's blind-shot specialist,
was high scorer of the game with 11
points. Sharing scoring honors for
the Spartans was Howard Kraft with
eight points, while Captain Chelso
Tamagno and Earl Townsend added
to the Michigan total with seven
points each.
Confronted with the defensive
problem of stopping Buysse and his

Paced by the brilliant Vic Hey-
liger who scored five goals in the
first two periods, a fighting Michigan
hockey team, beset at the most in-
opportune times by damaging in-
juries, managed to cling to a slender
one-goal lead throughout the last two
minutes of the third period last night
to outlast the London Athletic Club
and open its 1935-36 season with a
5-4 victory.
Thoroughly outplayed throughout
the first period and a half, London
came back with a rush in the final
stanza to score three goals and bring
the crowd -the largest ever to at-
tend an opening hockey game - to its
feet as the Wolverines strove des-
perately to defend their lead.
Minus the services of Captain Larry
David who was forced out of the game
midway in the second period with a
bad shoulder injury, and with both
Dick Berryman and Bert Smith play-
ing with bandages covering nasty
cuts, Michigan fought desperately
throughout the whole period as they
saw their four-goal margin melt away
goal by goal. The stands were in an
uproar as the Canadians, in a series
five man rushes carried the play to
the Wolverines and kept the puck
constantly insMichigan territory.
Heyliger spent little time getting
started as he swept around the Lon-

Engineers To Vote
On Most Commonly
Despised Professor
That question which probably
troubles mare incoming freshmen
than any other - who is the most
popularly unpopular professor?-will
be settled for this year Wednesday
night, if the presence of too many
aspirants for the honor does not re-
sult in a tie.
To determine the individual who is
the answer to this momentous ques-
tion the A.S.M.E. is sponsoring to-
morrow a "primary" election in which
each student will be allowed one --
and only one-- ballot upon which to
mark his choice. As a special con-
cession each voter will be allowed one
sentence in which briefly to sum-
marize the reasons for his selections.
Large strong ballot boxes have been
placed in the East Engineering Build-
ing lobby and on the second floor,
over the arch, of the West Engineer-
ing Building.
Final selection of the professor
most worthy of succeeding John
Grennan, foundry instructor, as pos-
sessor of the distinctive trophy
awarded by the A.S.M.E. on this oc-
,asion will be made from the high
ranking men in the "primary" voting.
This final choice will be taken at the
society meeting Wednesday night in
the Union.

Speaking Of Samaritans
When Dobbin gave way before the stream-lined super-charged
gas buggy of the modern age, he took with him the kind of neigh-
borly consideration which made other human beings worth knowing.
Startling to the country visitor in the city is the hostile glare with
which grumpy people stab each other in street cars, on street corners.
In the country, the human bond between fellow travellers on a
strange planet to an unknown destination is perceivable in the smile
which passes even between strangers - the bond of humanity which
alone remains when, as in these past few years, material things reveal
their impermanency.
The kind of cold impersonality which characterizes the selfish,
self-concerned automaton who lives close-packed in apartment
houses is apparent from time to time to us in our drive to put across
the idea of the Goodfellow edition of The Daily which is to be
issued tomorrow. From many a mouth came the protest: "But I
just gave something to somebody else."
We are overcome by a kind of cold fury when meeting those
people who believe their obligations to fellow human beings is ended
by making one small contribution each year - and when we see
others faced by the hard reality of scrubbing out a meager existence
from garbage cans of our civilization, we'd like to scrub the smug
complacent faces of these automatons in the gravel until they bleed
with human sympathy.
The cause of the Goodfellows is not the only one, nor does one's
obligation to humanity end with the purchase of one of their
papers. But our Goodfellow Daily, we hope earnestly, will help to
take care of some of these people we've been seeing these past few
weeks - kids without shoes, undernourished, families where the
mother dies and leaves five, bewildered and unprotected, students
to whom the privilege of going to school means so much that they
are willing to do without food.
We'll have them in mind when we ask you to buy a Goodfellow
Daily tomorrow; we hope you'll be thinking of them too.

Rural Life Of State Sounded
By Prolific Correspondent

First-hand accounts from 'Michi-
gan farmers of everything from po-
litical dogmas to personal problems
are being carefull pieced together in-
to a composite picture of the rural
life of the state by Prof. Ray H.
Holmes of the sociology department,
the University's most prolific corres-
Since he wrote his first letter to a
farmer on Oct. 10, 1932, Professor
Holmes has steadily enlarged his cor-
respondence until today he writes,
and hears from more than 200 rural
inhabitants in all sections of the state.
He has, at one time or another,
been in touch with about 425 farm-
ers, and has received more than 2,000
The undertaking, known as the
Rural Sociology Correspondence Proj-
ect, is being carried on partly to in-
vestigate "rural culture and the so-
cial psychology of farm people," and
partly to assist the farmers of the
state in solving all types of problems
that may present themselves.
Every month Professor Holmes col-
lects the most interesting extracts
from the mail of the previous month
and sends a copy of these to each of

Predicts Death Of
Football In 1942
PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 14. - (P) -
Philip O. Badger, chairman of the
board of athletic control of New York
University, said today intercollegiate
football as it exists at present "will
be dead in 1942" unless "those in a
position of .trust as heads of insti-
tutions get down to business."
Badger, speaking at the annual
meeting of the Middle Atlantic States
Conference, said college football af-
ter 1942 "would be professional as
against amateur" if officials did not
stop "dodging responsibilities and ra-
tionalize athletics."
He expressed the belief intercol-
legiate athletics were on the verge of
a "really significant rationalization
on a broad front.j

Beginning last month, he inaug-
urated the practice of listing general
conclusions derived from his letters
and soliciting reactions from his cor-
respondents about them.
A typical extract, written by a
woman who is a Sunday School of-
ficial, says, "We have a group in the
neighborhood who made considerable
comment and resented my activities
because I play cards, dance, and
thoroughly enjoy life and they do
Economic problems also come in
for considerable discussion. A coun-
ty school superintendent writes, "The
surrounding farmers are talking of
having a penny sale if the sheriff at-
tempts execution of the contract,"
and "There are at least 80 per cent
of the farmers of the community who
are now residing on farms and are
scheduled to go on the welfare or
some other institution, if they do not
have help."
The difficulty of reconciling urban
and rural ways of living is illustrated
in the statement, "Many city resi-
dents have bought farms and moved
their families here, especially during
the depression. These people have
come from Chicago, Detroit, South
Bend, and other cities. They have
come with new ideas and their own
ideals, forming a new community life
among themselves."
Professor Holmes has found that
he can get better cooperation from
the farmers by approaching them

Football Star
Is Sentenced On
Larceny Charge
Leslie Anderson, 26 years old, fresh-
man football star here in 1930, and
Stanley Owens, 36, both of Grass
Lake, were sentenced to serve terms
of not more than 15 years in the
States' Prison of Southern Michigan
at Jackson in circuit court yesterday,
by Judge George W. Sample on a
charge of robbery unarmed.
Anderson was convicted on a sim-
ilar charge by Justice Jay Payne,
when he was playing football here. He
was placed on probation for five years,
on the earlier charge after it had
been reduced from a charge of rob-
bery armed. The two men were sen-

Nell Gwyn's Company Is Unique
In Annals Of American Theatre

When the curtain rises at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre Monday eve-
ning on the production of Bronson
Howard's play "The Henrietta," it
will usher in the sixth consecutive
season of an organization which is
unique in the annals of the Amer-
ican theatre.
Nell Gwyn's Company, as it is
called, is a group of theatrically in-
clined people from Ann Arbor and
vicinity whose sole object is the re-
vival of forgotten masterpieces of
the English and American stage. Al-
though its activities are pursued with-
out fanfare and even without the
knowledge of many in the community,
the company begins this year stronger
than ever, with ambitious plans for

The first production, Sheridan's "A
Trip to Scarborough," was directed
and produced by Prof. Howard M.
Jones of the English department,
who was and is the moving spirit of
the group. Begun with no preten-
sions and small hope of eventual pro-
duction in the theatre, its first per-
formance took place in a local draw-
ing-room before a small but critical
audience interested primarily in the
play. It was only after this trial
performance had impressed an in-
terested group that the decision to
produce the play was made. The
production was finally given, before
an invited audience, at the old Mimes
Theatre, now the Play Production
Laboratory workshop.
