(Copyrighted, 1935, by Associated Press)
- Ras Gugsa Demtu, Haile Selassie's
son-in-law, was reported converging
today with three main columns of
40,000 Ethiopians on a front 30 miles
from Dolo, where a big Ethiopian at-
tack has been expected momentarily
since last Tuesday.
The Italian troops were weary from
waiting and prepared for inward
thrusts if Gugsa's slow-moving divi-
sion did not strike soon.
"On the Somaliland front we are
on the defensive but not static," Gen.
Rudolfo Graziani told me. "If the
Ethiopians turn, then we will be
ready to drive.
"We are well prepared to drive
straight and hard at the Ethiopians.
They have not fired a single offensive
shot against the Italians in the bout,
although we have made several at-
"That indicates Gugsa is without
Hard-bitten General Rudolfo Grazi-
ani, Italian commander on the South-
ern Ethiopian front said today he
would be well on the road to Addis
Ababba if Henry Ford hadn't be-
come "the private sanctionist."
"We paid for 800 Fords in advance,"
the general said, "but the sale was
cancelled when Henry Ford began his
private sanctions."
The general, whose forces have
been engaging scattered Ethiopian
bands in the far South while head-
quarters attempted to keep transpor-
tation facilities moving at top speed,
said he needed only more caterpillar
tractors to break through to Ethio-
pia's capitol.
"Although their speed is only 5
miles an hour," he said, "such trac-
tors conquer our mobility problem.
Three hundred more caterpillars here
would enable us to march straight to
Addis Ababa."
This correspondent found General
Grazian applying the whip-lash of
his authority and personality to keep
a constant stream of munitions, ra-
tions and hospital supplies moving
up to the front.
Thousands of tractors and trucks
were storming through suffocating
clouds of dust, alternating between
red and white.

CINCINNATI, Dec. 15. - () - Dr.
Raymond Walters, president of the
University of Cincinnati, reported to-
day that more than a million young
Americans are continuing their stu-
dies in colleges and universities of
the United States.
His annual survey of university
and college registration putthe fig-
ure at 1,071,320 in 588 institutions,
not including normal schools, accred-
ited by the American Council on Ed-
ucation. Of the number, 705,989 are
full-time students, the rest attending
part-time and summer-school classes.
Altogether, his report said, total en-
rollment is 6.6 per cent above that of
1934, which in turn was 5 per cent
above that of 1933.
Moreover, Dr. Walters commented,
"economic improvement in many sec-
tions is indicated by fewer applica-
tions from full-time students for in-
stallment payments of tuition and
notes payable after graduation."
Sees A Change In Trend
His survey indicated a shift in
trend in student plans.
"Liberal arts courses, which now
form an essential requirement for
admission to medical, law and other
professional schools," the survey said,
"continue to be the training most
largely sought by those entering
American colleges and universities.
The proportion, however, is diminish-
ing; in 193, 75 per cent of freshmen
chose a liberal arts curriculum; this
fall the percentage was 71.8.
"This fall, the increase in liberal
arts freshmen over 1934 is 4.6 per
cent, but the increase in freshmen
taking engineering is 12.1 per cent;
the increase in freshmen taking
courses in commerce or business ad-
ministration is 12.2 per cent, and the
increase in freshmen starting upon
courses in agriculture is 30.3 per
The section of the country com-
posed of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Mich-
igan and Wisconsin had the largest
number of full-time students, the re-
port said, with 144,168, an increase
of 5.25 over 1935.
Lists 10 Largest
Dr. Walters lists the 10 largest uni-
versities on the basis of full-time
students, as: California, 20,388; Co-
lumbia, 14,116; Minnesota, 12,873;
New York University, 12,705; Illinois,
11,528; Ohio State, 11,215; Michigan,

For these unfortunate little tots,
who have gone hungry many times
so far during the winter, Santa Claus
will be a reality - a reality in the
form of the' Goodfellow Fund.
These two children, representative
of hundreds, according to local wel-
fare authorities, belong to a family
which the relief agencies have been
taking care of. Since fall they have
been living at a mere subsistence
level. There is no money in their
family, even for candy, let alone
Christmas presents. But their wan

600 Men Unemployed
In this vicinity there are nearly
600 men, many of whom have fam-
ilies, that are wholly unemployable,
according to Clarence H. Elliot,
county welfare director. And in ad-
dition to these, there are 100 men,
nearly all fathers, now working on
the WPA, who will be forced to quit
work any day because of illness.
What will become of thes men
and their families. Mr. Elliot wishes
he knew. The Federal government
has said that no more money will
be given for relief, he explained. Of
the $24,000 allotted to all of Wash-
tenaw county for December relief,
more than $18,000 has already been
expended. More may,come. Again

Of Local

Take the instance of a family of
ninepersons on the west side of Ann
Arbor, described by welfare officials.
The father works part time, having
just recovered from an automobile
accident. The mother, just out of
the county hospital, is working in a
laundry. Three of the children are
under three years of age.
The family earnings provide but
little more than 20 cents per day for
this family to cover food, clothing
and housing. The county welfare
furnishes them with milk. There is
no fund for medical expenses. Re-
cently a five-year old had influenza.
He suffered in the meager=home, the
rent of which is weeks in arrears, for
three days before a doctor visited
him. His illness, the doctor is re-
ported to have said, was caused by
It is families like these to whom
the Goodfellow Fund will come as a
Godsend. It will make their Christ-
mas merrier in that it will enable
them to have a few moments of com-
fort - or at least ease their suffer-

for whom the welfare agencies must
