Completely outplaying a Canadian
hockey six which failed to live up to
the reports of its own publicity de-
partment, Michigan's Varsity hockey
team overwhelmed the Ilderton Ath-
letic Club, 9-1, at the Coliseum last
night in a game which was dis-
rupted in the second period by a
free for all fight which featured
Bert Smith and Joe Given in an old-
fashioned pummeling match.
The fracas started when Smith and
Given began to rough it up in the
Wolverine defensive territory. Smith
landed on Given's schnozz in a pure-
ly defensive move and as both boys
went down on the ice, Given's brother
leaped on Smith. Players from both
teams joined in as substitutes flocked
out on the ice to get into action.
Referee Paddy Farrell worked his way
into the melee and grabbing the orig-
inal belligerents by the scruff of the
neck, broke up a riotous scene which
had spectators howling with glee.
Both Given and Smith were given
minor penalties and the game was
resumed without further trouble.
Heyliger .Leads Scoring
Vic Heyliger, Michigan's Concord
flash, once again led the Wolverine
scoring parade, figuring in each of
the nine goals Eddie Lowrey's men
piled up. Five goals and four as-
sists were Heyliger's modest scoring
aggregate as he wove in and between
a pathetically weak Ilderton defense
to give Goalie Chapman a very un-
happy night plucking pucks out of the
twine. Chapman, however, played a
good game in goal and robbed Mich-
igan of at least four other scores
when he smothered shots from the
sticks of Berryman and Heyliger.
The Ilderton team played indif-
ferent hockey during the first period
while Michigan, starting with a rush
rammed in five goals to get off to
'a comfortable lead.
The crowd was scarcely settled in
its seats when Heyliger skated around
the defense to take Captain Larry
David's pass in the clear and blaze the
first counter of the game past Goalie
Chapman's leg.
Fabello Gets Tally
Fabello, who played a great part of
the game at his old wing position.
got the second tally of the game when
he drove a hard shot past Chapman
from just inside the red line. Hey-
liger made the play. Berryman scored
twice on beautifully executed passing
plays between himself and Victor

The Michigan defense ws air

saulted the Michigan goal. Ilderton

thing else, accounted for their com-
plete rout as time after time. they
were left behind when the Wolverine

forwards broke down the ice.
The lone Ilderton counter came
in the first period when Robson took
a pass from Keen and looped a shot
from the red line that passed Low's
right arm.
Lowrey made frequent substitutions
throughout the second and third pe-
riods as Griggs, Simpson, and Fa-
bello alternated with the starting
sextet. Irving Shalek played goal
for the major portion of the third
period and turned in a creditable per-
formance although he had no diffi-
cult saves.
Michigan scored three goals in the
second period to lead 8-1 and con-
tented themselves with a lone tally

Talk With President
The revelation that Presiden
Robsevelt anticipated with certaint
b the 6-3 Supreme Court decisio
against the AAA as long ago a
Thanksgiving, was made last nigh
by Dr. Max M. Peet of the Medica
Lunching with the President in
Washington, Dr. Peet said the Chie
Executive told him that he "expected
the 6-3 decision" declaring the adt
unconstitutional. Dr. Peet, one o0
the four medical advisors at the
President's Birthday Ball Commis-
sion on Infantile Paralysis, was one
of a group of medical men conferring
with President Roosevelt at the White
House at the time. Shortly after
that, Dr. Peet had a long, intimate
talk with him at Warm Springs, Ga.,
home of the President's Infantile
Paralysis Hospital.
Dr. Peet, who has won wide recog-
nition as a surgeon, said he found
the President "exceedingly cheerful
and quite certain the Democrats will
win the coming election." President
Roosevelt is a splendid character who
doesn't put on a bit of dog," declared
Dr. Peet, who is a Republican.
During the Christmas vacation
Prof. John L. Brumm, chairmn of
the journalism department, also
talked to President Roosevelt. At-
tending the Eighteenth Annual Con-
vention of the American Association
of Schools and Departments of Jour-
nalism in Washington, Professor
Brumm was one of a group that in-
terviewed the President.
Speaking chiefly of his relations
with Washington newspapermen,
President Roosevelt told the journal-
ism professors that he had hardly

Editorial Attacks Before
Young Democrats
Criticizing certain American news-
papers for their adoption of an edi-
torial policy inconsistent with what
appears on their financial pages, and
defending every phase of the New
Deal, Mrs. Christine McDonald, vice-
chairman bf the State Democratic
Committee spoke before 150 Demo-
crats assembled at the Union last
night celebrating Jackson Day,
sponsored by the Young Democrats'
"Readers of many of our American
newspapers must find it amusing to
read of our nation's prosperity so
clearly shown on the financial pages
and then turning to the editorial
page find articles condemning the
very policies that gave birth to this
evident prospeity," declared Mrs.
Discussing the recent decision of
the Supreme Court invalidating the
AAA, Mrs. McDonald pointed out
that the farmer's opportunity to
produce at a fair return is gone af-
ter the previous legislation had lifted
him out of his poverty. "Henry Ford
stops manufacturing his quota of
automobiles when he knows he can't
sell them," Mrs. McDonald cited,
"and naturally one cannot expect
the farmer to continue. producing
when he knows much of his produce
will be pure waste."
Former Governor William A.
Comstock spoke next and made the
plea in his talk for better harmony
and unification in the Democratic
Party in Michigan.
"When the Democratic Party took

over the state in 1933, after years of
being a minority party, numerous po-
litical 'big heads' appeared in Lans-
ing seeking jobs and certain grants
which were refused. Disgruntled,
these same individuals deserted the
party and became enemies," he said.

Coughlin Aims
Attack On New
Bankino Laws
Radio Priest To File Suit
To Test Constitutionality
Of Federal Reserve Act
WASHINGTON, Jan. 8. -(R) -
Shaping a new assault on bankers,
Father Charles E. Coughlin an-
nounced today he would file suit to
test the constitutionality of the Fed-
eral Reserve Act.
The Detroit radio priest told re-
porters after a 20-minute visit with
President Roosevelt that the purpose
of his court action was an attempt
"to refer to Congress and to the
people control over money."
He described his talk with the Pres-
ident as "purely social" and not con-
cerned with whether he would sup-
port Mr. Roosevelt in the coming elec-
tion as he did in 1932.
"We just avoided that subject,"
Coughlin said.
The priest added, however, that he
did not "intend to keep aloof from
the next presidential campaign," but
would center his fire on the congres-
sional elections.
In New York, Senator Thomas
(Dem., Okla.), said he was advising
the priest on the litigation, asserting
that recent Supreme Court decisions,
particularly in the Panama Refin-
ing Co. case and Schechter Poultry
case (NRA) have cast "strong doubt
on the Reserve Act." Thomas is a
leader of Senate inflationists.
"Congress has the right to coin and
issue money," Coughlin told report-
ers. "I can't find anywhere in the
Constitution that it may delegate that
right without restrictions."
He added that 99 per cent of all
money was privately owned and con-
Federal Reserve Board officials ex-
pressed little concern over the im-
pending suit, one spokesman assert-
ing that "the act has been tested
several times and came through, each
time, with flying colors."
In the coming elections, Coughlin
said his National Union for Social
Justice would "try to get those men
out of Congress who do not agree
with the Union."
Fail To Create
Substitute For
AAA Machinery
The White House and a Congress
committe mulled over the AAA prob-
lem today without finding a substi-

tute plan for the farm machinery in-
validated by the Supreme Court.
Two developments served to break
lightly the paralysis that the court's
AAA ruling had cast on the farm
administration. In a formal an-
nouncement the AAA said it inter-
preted the decision as not affecting
marketing agreements, orders or li-
censes urider the Adjustment Act.
Secondly, reflecting its belief that
Monday's decision did not determine
the question of refunding processing
taxes already collected, the Govern-
ment telegraphed all United States
attorneys to leave in status quo in-,
junction suits involving that point.
The government awaits a supremel
court ruling on a challenge of the
validity of an amendment prohibit-
ing the filing of such suits. The
challenge was made in eight cases

$363,000,000 Before

WASHINGTON, Jan. 8. - (P) -
The virtual wartime operation of sev-
eral American rifle factories by the
British government, after negotia-
tions which found J. .P. Morgan sit-
ting down with the British war coun-
cil, was revealed today by the Senate
Munitions Committee.
The arms companies concerned. it
was testified, were Winchester and
In addition, Committee investiga-
tors disclosed that the State Depart-
ment, with the 1916 election ap-
proaching, withheld from publication
for three weeks a British note re-
ceived in the course of the con-
t'oversy over 1ritish interference
with American commerce.
Evidence to this effect was brought
out during the protracted sessions
today, with J. P. Morgan and sev-
eral of his partners on the witness
stand for the second consecutive day.
Banking Interests Involved
Both Morgan and Daniel W. La-
mont, one of the partners, testified
that important banking interests
stood to lose heavily unless the rifle
contract settlements were satisfac-
tory. On thesenbanks, it was tes-
tified, they depended for floating a
contemplated British loan of $300,-
The rifle contract provided a high
spot in a day which produced evi-
dence that companies in which Mor-
gan was interested sold the Allies
$363,000,000 worth of goods before
the United States entered the war.
In all, as purchasing agent for the
Allies, the Morgan company engi-
neered the purchase of $3,000,000,000
of goods for the Allies at commission
of $30,000,000.
In the matter of rifle contracts,
Morgan, on Sept. 18, 1916, wired his
British representatives to communi-
cate to British authorities a message
which counseled against canceling
rifle contracts because of possible ef-
fects on British financial operations
in this country.
Stephen Raushenbush, committee
investigator, contended that this
amounted to a "threat" to the British
that unless the rifle contracts were
satisfactorily settled, support for the
coming loan would be withdrawn.
Concede Weight Of Contracts
Neither Morgan nor Lamont would
agree absolutely, but readily conceded
the importance of the rifle contracts
to the successful flotation of the loan.
"The financial interest at the mo-
ment was the important thing," said
Morgan, booming out the word "the."
"We weren't advising Great Britain
to do anything they shouldn't do,"
said Lamont. "We told them that
if they wanted to go on they .would
have to satisfy the financial commu-
nity they were going to deal fairly
with the rifle manufacturers."
For a second day, the committee

sought to trace the effect of the war
loans to Allied Nations on America's
later entry into the conflict.
The hearing developed early into
a running verbal encounter between
Raushenbush and Lamont, with Mor-
gan sitting passively and seeming to
have a tremendously good time. At
one point, however, his interest ap-
parently wandered and his head
"Are we neglecting you, Mr. Mor-
gan?" Raushenbush asked.
The financier started.
"Why-uh, no, sir," he replied and
then, regaining his composure, he
added with a chuckle: "I don't feel
it in the least."

Music Doesn't Go
'Round And Round'
For This Professor
The music may go "round and
round," but to one of the professors
in the psychology department it
doesn't make any difference.
The professor was explaining the
auditory system of the human body
to his class. "The sound goes in
here and then down and around,"
he was saying, when his listeners'
laughter interupted him.
The professor's feelings were hurt
at this. Desist this nonsense, he
said in effect, and proceeded to lec-
ture on the proper attitude of classes
and how they should not laught at a
professor's remarxs.
Evidently the professor was not
jazz minded and had not even heard
of the popular song about how the
music goes. But it didn't matter to
the class members. For them, the
music went "round and round."

The second hard blizzard of the
week blanketed Ann Arbor in more
than five inches of snow yesterday.
The snow storm began shortly after
2 p.m., yesterday, and although the
weather bureau at the University Ob-
servatory reported nearly a half
an inch of snow fell, the total snow-
fall on the ground was five and a half
inches, the bureau said.
The weather bureau's rapidly fall-
ing barometer indicated that more
snow is possible for today. More
than three inches fell Monday, that
storm being termed the hardest of
the year.
There is little indication for a
change in temperature, which was
recorded last night by the Observa-
tory at 30.8 degrees above zero. Low-
est for the day was 26 degrees, and1
the highest was 32 degrees, the Ob-
servatory reported.

Draws Nearly 2,000 To

Says Justice Will

President Concludes By
Saying Administration
Will Not Retreat
WASHINGTON, Jan. 8. - (R) -
President Roosevelt, clearly aiming
across party lines, tonight formally
opened the Democratic presidential
campaign with an assertion that "the
basic issues will be the retention of
popular government."
Referring briefly to the clashing
philosophy in the Supreme Court
opinions on the overthrow of the AAA
as likely to reverberate for years,
and touching on the aims of his ad-
ministration in general, the chief
executive concluded: "We will not
Speaks To 2,000
Speaking directly to a Jackson Day
gathering of nearly 2,000 Dempcratic
leaders and adherents, who paid $50
a plate for their dinners, and by
radio to hundreds of other Demo-
cratic dinners throughout the coun-
try, Mr. Roosevelt urged all to get
"at the truth," behind "the smoke
of charges and counter-charges of
a national campaign."
Twice the President emphasized
that he sought to speak to citizens
regardless of "political affiliations,"
and once urged as "essential" a "or-
ganization among all those, regard-
less of party, who believe in retain-
ing progress and ideals."
Briefly referring to the Supreme
Court's AAA decision, the President
declined to say what would be done.
He promised, however, that "justice"
for agriculture would remain an ob-
Mr. Roosevelt mentioned the "two
momentous opinions" of the court,
apparently referring to the majority
and minority opinions on AAA and
the philosophy of the three justices
who voted to uphold as against the
six who declared the farm plan in-
Refers To AAA
In so doing he renewed the em-
phasis placed by others in the ad-
ministration since the court's decision
on the fact that the minority opinion
both hit at the majority's theory of
government and contended that it
had exceeded its power.
Here is the President's complete
reference to the AAA:
"I know you will not be surprised
by lack of comment on my part to-
night on the decision by the Supreme
Court two days ago. I cannot offer
offhand judgment without studying,
with the utmost care, two of the
most momentous opinions ever ren-
dered in a case before the Supreme
Court of the United States
"The ultimate result of the lan-
guage of these opinions will pro-
foundly affect the lives of Amer-
icans for years to come. It is enough
to say that the attainment of justice
and prosperity for American agricul-
ture remains an immediate and con-
stant objective of my administration."
The President drew analogy be-
tween his administration and that
of Andrew Jackson, to whom he re-
ferred as a "man who fought the
people's fight." He drew laughter
and applause from his audience when
he added significantly: "And history
repeats itself."

Hobbs Sees Use Of Greenland
Route For Tran s - Ocean Flights

Professor Emeritus William H.
Hobbs of the geology department,
who has spent many years in the
Arctic region, believes the future will
see huge airplanes of the Clipper size
reaching their destination - wheth-
er it be London, Paris, Hamburg,
Berlin, Oslo, or Stockholm - over a
northern route through Greenland.
Since the first airplane flight of
any success back at Kitty Hawk in
1903, man's wings have so strength-
ened that today they carry him
across the wide Pacific, from the
new world to the old. The China
Clipper's epoch-making flight of last
month has opened a regular com-
mercial schedule between America
and China. Not satisfied until he
has spanned the Atlantic as well,
man has experimented with various
routes between this - country and
It is fair to assume that the east-
ward trans-Atlantic flights have gen-
erally set out from near New York
City because that route is the tra-

No part of his cargo can therefore
be given over to passengers or to
profit-yielding freight. The west-
ward flight against a prevailing wind
and against the drift of the weather
is even more hazardous.
On the other hand, according to
Professor Hobbs, the flying route
from, say, Chicago to Europe re-
quires no single hop of over 900 miles
and no overseas stretch in excess of
600 miles. The Chicago-Stockholm
route lies close to a Great Circle, of-'
fers marked features for checking the
course, is already provided with radio
and weather stations, and, with ad-
vance knowledge, fuel can be sup-
plied at convenient stopping places.
In the near. future the emergency
landing fields and light and radio
beacons may be expected at even
closer intervals.
Baffin Bay to the westward of
Greenland, and the Greenland and
North Seas to the eastward, are prob-
ably less shrouded by fog than are
the waters of the more southernly
route. which lies along the common
