At Halfway Mark
Boilermakers Stand Out In
Field, Ringing 17 Out Of
51 Attempted Shots
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Jan. 13. - (P)
,- Purdue's Boilermakers, displaying
a lightning fast attack combined with
excellent shooting, knocked off Mich-
igan's rangy Wolverine team and in
so doing handed them their second
defeat in three Conference starts.
Continually working the ball
through a supposedly strong Michi-
gan defense, the little Purdue team
got in close for frequent shots from
under the basket. The pace through-
out the first half was fast and fur-
ious as Michigan got off to an early
4-0 lead, allowed the Boilermakers
to outplay them for the rest of the
period and at the half they were be-'
hind 24-18.I
John-Townsend, Wolverine sopho-
more center, was the Michigan scor-
ing star as he dropped in five field
goals. Captain Chelso Tomagno,
Michigan sparkplug, was ejected from"
the game on personals late in the1
second half as Purdue put on a stall-
ing act and refused to allow the
Wolverines to get possession of the
Purdue Looks Hot
The victory, the third straight for1
the Boilermakers, set them up as1
very possible Conference champions,,
and damaged Michigan's hopes for
the title.
Michigan was first to score on a
close in goal by John Townsend and
George Rudness made it 4-0, on a
long shot.
John Townsend poked in another
basket during a scrimmage under the
basket after Young had counted on
a free throw for Purdue, but Kessler
went tearing through to make it 6-3.
Townsend then scored from the foul
line for a 7-3 lead.
The smaller Purdue five then
turned on the speed and in less than
four minutes went into the lead 8-7
and then counted five more points
before John Townsend scored another
free throw.
The pace was so fast both teams
were panting, but Purdue kept on1
the pressure to lead 15-8, then 16-1
10, and 24 to 18 at the half, a briefi
Michigan rally pulling the Wolverines
up from 24-14 just before half time.
The Old Stalling Stuff
The second half started slowly, Pur-
due taking time out when Michigan
scored on a short shot by John Town-
Then after the next center toss, the
Boilermakers stalled for two minutes,
Ed Elliott, Purdue center, standing1
just at center court while his team-
mates milled around under the goal.f
John Gee refused to come out and
meet him and Elliot finally broke
for the goal while the crowd wistled
and cheered.]
Earl Townsend went in for Gee
at this point and signalized his ar-
rival with a field goal.
Apparently refreshed by their rest
while Elliot held the ball in center
court, both teams again turned on
the speed and the scoring and play
was fast through the middle of the
period. Michigan pulled up 24-26,
then 26-23, and finally 30-33 as
John Townsend scored his fifth goal
of the evening.

Chairman Fletcher
Hits Radio Chains
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13. - (/P) -
Charges of "censorship" were hurled
tonight by Chairman Henry P. Flet-
cher of the Republican national com-
mittee against the Columbia Broad-
casting System and the National
Broadcasting Company.
In letters to their presidents, Flet-
cher said their policies would lead
the public to believe they were "ex-
ercising an unwarranted degree of
censorship" or that they feared "pun-
itive action by the federal com-
munications commission."
Fletcher's blast followed a state-
ment of apology by the two com-
panies arising from the demand that
time be given the Republicans to
answer President Roosevelt's annual
message to Congress.

Italians Push Aerial War
In Face Of Hindrances
To InfantryDivisions
(By The Associated Press)
Italian invaders of Ethiopia, their
campaigns hampered by weather op-
posites on two main frontiers, were
reported yesterday to be pushing aer-
ial attacks on the southwestern river
valley settlements.
A neutral observer who flew back
to Addis Ababa after a visit to Ras
Desta Demtu's camp said the Ital-
ian air squadrons were bombing the
courses of the Webbe Shibeli and the
.Ganale Doria daily between 7 and
9 a.m.
Troop movements in the north have
been hindered by driving early rains
which have turned Italian-construct-
ed roads into mud holes or have
washed them away.
Lack of water in the terrific heat
of the desert south, together with ma-
larial fevers, also have complicated
the Italians.
Members of the British Cabinet
charged with keeping up the na-

U. S., Witnesses Say
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13. -- (P) -
With J. P. Morgan indignantly dis-
claiming any responsibility, the Sen-
ate Munitions Committee produced
evidence today that the Midvale Steel
Co. set virtually its whole plant to
filling British war needs in 1916 and
left ammunition orders of the United
States Army waiting.
Midvale officials will be called for
testimony, probably next week, the
committee announced.
Morgan correspondence showed
Great Britain expressing apprehen-
sion lest American needs retard the
I delivery of shells for use in France,
and Midvale replying that, "on the
contrary" it had "seriously delayed"
filling the orders of its own govern-
ment, then embroiled on the Mexican;
The Committee presented a letter
from Midvale to the Morgan com-
pany, which said:'
"In order to further production of'
English projectiles on orders which'
we have on hand, we have seriously
delayed the completion of orders for
American ┬░projectiles which were
placed long prior to your orders and{
on which delayed orders we are pay-
ing penalties in serious amounts."
Assurances which Morgan gave in
115 that France and England could
never afford to go back on their debts
in this country were brought out'
earlier in today's hearing.
In addition, the committee re-'
vealed that in floating the $500,000
Anglo-French loan of 1915, the Brit-
ish and Scotch organizations in this
country solicited the indorsements of'
men prominent in the American bus-
iness world, and advertised extensive-
ly in the newspapers.
From Morgan and his partners,
Thomas W. Lamont and George
Whitney, the investigators also re-
ceived assertions that the business
boom created here by the war orders
of Great Britain and France was
beneficial to this country and hardly
the cause of its ultimate participa-
tion in the war.
Morgan also vigorously denied that
his firm had precipitated a foreign
exchange panic to force the Wilson
administration to permit huge loans
to the Allies.
Report Communists Will
Push Drive In Americas
RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan. 13.- UP) -
A charge that Communists have
opened headquarters in Mexico City
for "direct action" in work on the
American continents was made today
by high Brazilian sources.
These sources said the headquarters
was moved from Montevideo when
Uruguay broke relations with the So-
viet recently.
Representatives of the Comitern
(Communist Internationale), it was
asserted, expect to direct their work
in Central America, Colombia, Vene-
zuela, the Guianas and the northern
parts of Brazil.

Fidgety 'Phoners
Set Record With 79
Basketball Queries
Student interest in the Michigan
basketball team's chances of snaring
all or part of the Western Conference
basketball crown seems to be tuned
to concert pitch.
When the Wolverine quintet, in
past seasons, has been playing away
from home, only scattered calls to
the offices of The Daily asking for
results have been received. Last night,
it was very different.
Between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m. The
Daily received 79 calls asking the
outcome. This, it might be added,
is not counting calls from feminine
students received before the game
actually began.
When the sad news was told to
fidgety 'phoners, comments ranged
from "Uh-huh" to "Oh, damn" and
on upward.
Well, we still think Michigan has
a chance to win the championship.
Golschmann To

St. Louis Orchestra Said
To Have 'Superb Tonal
Balance And Quality'
The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra,
directedbyVladimir Golschmann,
widely known as one of the oldest
symphonic organizations in America,
will present the sixth in the series
of Choral Union concerts at 8:15
p.m. today in Hill Auditorium.
The orchestra was first organized
in 1860 as a local orchestra and was in
existence until the present St. Louis
Symphony Society was founded in
1881. Since that time the orchestra
has been supported principally by
the citizens of St. Louis.
Its appearance tonight will mark
the first time that the symphony
has ever played before an Ann Arbor

invitation of Walter Damrosch to
appear as guest conductor of the New
York Symphony. In 1931 he ap-
peared as guest conductor of the New

Congress Foresees Need
Of New Tax Measures To
Raise Revenue
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13. - (P) -
The Government today lost $200,000,-
000 in impounded AAA processing
taxes through a Supreme Court de-
cision which left unsettled the larger
question of whether the treasury
must refund any of the $1,000,000,000
it has collected.
Although it declared processing
taxes and all the rest of the AAA un-
constitutional last Monday, the Su-
preme Court at that time gave no
ruling on the disposal of taxes al-
ready collected.
The high court today deferred for
several weeks at least the question of
the constitutionality of the Bank-
head Cotton Control Act, explaining
that a case presenting that issue was
not in proper form for Supreme Court
Third Case Pending
There was no announcement on
the third New Deal case which the
Justices had under consideration.
Presumably a decision will be forth-
coming next Monday on the Tennes-
see Valley suit involving the govern-
ment's right to enter the electric
power business.
Decision Is Unanimous
The tax decision, unanimous, was
read by Justice Owen J. Roberts, who
last week announced the verdict
smashing AAA. It brought immed-
iate forecasts that Congress would be
asked to enact new revenue-raising
As soon as he heard of the Court's
action, Wesley E. Ney, Olahoma
Democrat, a member of the House
Ways and Means Committee, said:
"We are going to have to approve
some new tax bill for certain now.
I don't know where we could raise
the money, but some of us can't go
home until we pay off the farmers."
The $200,000,000 involved in to-
day's decision had been paid into
depositors under the direction of
lower courts by processors who be-
gan last June to seek injunctions re-
straining collection of AAA taxes on.
the ground the farm act was in-
AAA Deep "In Red"
As a result of the impounding of
the $200,000,000, the AAA, which
kept on paying farm benefits until
last Monday, found itself "in the
red" by that amount. In addition,
it owes $280,000,000 more to farmers
who adjusted crop production under
1935 contracts.
Thus, the Administration faces the
necessity of raising at least $480,000,-
000 to make up the tax deficit and
carry out its proposal to pay farmers
for performance under the 1935 AAA
President Roosevelt in his budget
message warned that if court attacks
on AAA were sustained, "we will have
to face the problem of financing ex-
isting contracts out of some form of
new taxes."
Roberts' opinion, given in a case in-
volving taxes of eight Louisiana rice
millers, held it was not necessary for
the Court at this time to pass on the
question of attempts to recover taxes
already paid into the treasury,. These
have approximated $1,000,000,000 in
the last two years.
In the AAA amendments passed
last August, Congress attempted to
require that processors show they had
absorbed such taxes before they
would be permitted to sue the govern-
ment for recovery in event of AAA's

Kipling Gravely Ill
After An Operation
LONDON, Jan. 14. - (Tuesday) -
UP) - Physicians attending Rudyard
Kipling, famed writer who underwent
an emergency operation for a gastric
disorder yesterday, reported early to-
day his condition was still very grave.
The poet-author was 70 years old
two weeks ago.
Stricken on the eve of a trip to the
Riviera, Kipling was removed from
his hotel suite this morning. Semi-
conscious, he was taken by ambulance
to the Central Middlesex Hospital.
"An urgent operation was per-
formed," the hospital stated, and a
later announcement said "the opera-
tion was satisfactory." His condition
seemed good, but he suffered a re-
lapse in the afternoon.
The one-time reporter, whose lit-
erary versatility ranged from roister-
ing lines like "A rag, a bone and a
hank of hair" to the stately and sober
inspiration of "The Recessional," was
the object of the solicitude of thous-
ands. The hospital answered a rush
of telephone inquiries as to his condi-

Tickets For Event
Will Sell At $5.50
Officials Promise Unusual
And Unique Decorations
For 'Zenith' Dance
The orchestras of Jan Garber and
Jimmy Lunceford, both nationally
famous radio and recording bands,
will play for the 1936 J-Hop, to be
held Friday, Feb. 14 in the Intra-
mural Building.
Members of the J-Hop committee
were extremely pleased in securing
Garber and Lunceford for the "zenith
of campus social functions," Ben-
jamin Cox, '37E, chairman, said last
night, because both are "name" bands
and yet each offers contrasting dance
arrangements. Whereas Garber has
achieved fame by his smooth flowing
rhythm, Lunceford has become equal-
ly prominent through his clean-cut
interpretation of "swing" tunes.
Tickets On Sale This Week
Tickets for the annual event will
again be priced at $5.50, as they have
been for the last two years, and will
probably go on sale the latter part
of this week.
Plans for transforming the inter-
ior of the huge Intramural Building
into something more than steel and
stone for Hop night have not as yet
been completed, but Richard M. Den-
nis and Bernard L. Cary, co-chairmen
of the decorations committee, an-
nounced that the decorations will be
"unique" and "different."
Garber started on his eventful
music career at the age of 14 when
he foreswore all other ambitions for
the playing of the violin. His studies
took him to the famed Combs Con-
servatory in Philadelphia and later
to a position in the even more re-
nowned Symphony Orchestra of that
For the past few years Garber's
orchestra has been "the idol of the
airways" on the Aragon-Trianon hour
from Chicago. Last summer he spent
a successful season at the Casino
at Catalina Island,
Lunceford graduated from Fisk
University after having won his spurs
not only in scholarship and music
but in athletics as well. He was a
four-letter varsity man there and
proclaims his favorite sport as foot-
While working as a physical edu-
cation director in New York, Lunce-
ford organized a dance band. He
booked his own work and in the short
span of two years had risen from
oblivion to one of the biggest names
in the dance world.
He achieved his first real success
when he was put under contract at
the famous Cotton Club in New York.
Soon afterward the Columbia Broad-
casting System picked him up and
gave him a good spot on the air.
During the past year he has been
doing records first for Victor and
then Decca and touring the country
with an all-Negro review.
His band differs from the average
Negro band in that it tends to be
more conservative and all his men
play in perfect tune. It depends more
on clarity and interpretation and
rhythm for success, rather than the
usual hot syncopation of most Negro

LONDON, Jan. 14. - (Tuesday) -
(P) -Authoritative Japanese sources
predicted early today the doom of
the Five Power Naval Conference
saying the Japanese delegation will
quietly withdraw from the conference
after a session Wednesday.
The Japanese were declared to be
preparing a formal note explaining
the Tokyo government considered a
continuation of their presence use-
less in view of "apparently unbridg-
able differences of opinion."
The note will be presented to For-
eign Secretary Eden after its formal
drafting, these sources said.

A complex and highly developed
civilization which existed in Asia
Minor in 300 B.C. was discussed in a
talk given yesterday in Alumni Me-
morial Hall by Prof. Clark Hopkins,
of the Latin and Greek department.
For five years, Professor Hopkins was
director of the Yale University exca-
vations at the site of the ancient city,
and during that time he made a
number of valuable discoveries.
Professor Hopkins opened his talk
by outlining the modern history of
Dura Europos, relating how the Brit-
ish discovered it during the World'
War when they stumbled upon a sec-
tion of the old walls, and planned to
use it as a temporary fortification.
They found frescoes on the walls,
however, and decided to investigate.

completely destroyed, but the walls
are still standing. The frescoes on
the walls show both Hellenistic and
Eastern influences, the former us-
ually being reflected in the back-
ground, and the latter in the stiffness
of the figures.
Professor Hopkins describes an or-
dinary house in the city as being
composed of a large central court,
surrounded by smaller rooms. One
part of one of the houses was dec-
orated with frescoes which, he said,
seemed to indicate that it had served
as a Christian chapel. In it there
are representations of Christ per-
forming miracles, and Peter walking
on the waters. The chapel also con-
tained a pool for baptisms.
