MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 17. - (P) -
Minnesota made it a clean sweep
over Michigan in their two-game
hockey series by a narrow margin of
1-0 at their Minneapolis arena to-
night. A crowd of 2,200 fans saw the
contest.
After the Gophers had trounced
Michigan 7-1 in the first game of the
series, the Wolverines came back to
wage a stubborn battle in the second
contest, despite the fact that they
carried only three spares. The Mich-'
igan athletes threatened repeatedly
in the final moments of the game.
Minnesota got its winning tally
midway in the second period. Bill
Bredesen, playing defense, took the
puck in mid-ice and soloed through
the Michigan defense to score. Al-'
though Minnesota bombarded Goalie
Irwin Shialek repeatedly in the sec-
ond period, they were unable to score;
again.
The game opened rather slowly
until Glenn Seidel, playing defense,
skated down the side of the ice for
a long shot. The goal judge raised1
his hand to signal it a score, but the
officials ruled differently and a new
goal judge was called for.
Later in the period when Seidel
tripped Vic Heyliger, Michigan cen-
ter, the latter was given a penalty
shot, but Bud Wilkinson blocked it.
The second period found Minne-I
sota playing its best hockey. Ed. Ar-
nold passed to Ray Bjorck in front
of the Wolverine goal to threaten inI
the opening moments. On another1
occasion the crowd thought the
Gophers had scored but Referee
FranktGoheen had rung his bell an
instant before the shot.I
Goalie Shalek was the hero of thei
game at this point as the Gophers
peppered him with shots from all1
angles. Michigan gradually grewI
strong in the third period and the1
final moments found the Gophers
trying desperately to break up the
Michigan attack.
With only two minutes to go, Hey-
liger and John Fabello, right wing,1
combined to break up Minnesota's
defense on several occasions Heyliger
got through with a pass from Fabel-
to with only a minute to go, but mis-
sed the corner of the net.

CHICAGO, Jan. 17. - Charley
Retzlaff, raw-boned North Dakota
rancher, finished lying on his back,
his glassy eyes staring at the ring
light, exactly one minute and twenty-
five seconds after he raised his hands
for his scheduled 15-round fight with
the jolting Joe Louis in the Chicago
stadium tonight.
Thus, Louis, most merciless punch-
er since the days of Jack Dempsey,
scored his 23rd knockout in 27 fights
to the accompaniment of the
screams and cheers from 14,100 spec-
tators.
The knockout was complete. Retz-
laff, paralyzed by the furious bar-
rage of punches, tried to get up at
the count of nine, but sank to his
haunches and rolled over, to be
counted out. lerhad to be helped to
his corner, where handlers worked
over him a few minutes.
Retzlaff walked fearlessly into
Louis' as the bell rang and threw the
first punch, a light left to the head
that missed. Louis stuck a light
left to the face and then the lanky
North Dakotan landed the first hard
punch, cracking Louis with a right
to the head as he came tearing in.
The blow just missed the chin and

The Townsend Plan is a rather
ridiculous, extreme, and somewhat
heroic attempt to secure for theE
masses of the American people aE
golden prosperity.
It appeals principally because of
its simplicity." "
The Plan would not work.1
These are the beliefs of Prof. Z. C.
Dickinson of the economics depart-1
ment, as expressed in an interview
yesterday.
"The magnitude of the obvious dis-
turbance and shock which would bef
caused by the operation of the pro-
posed Townsend two per cent tax onr
all transactions, whether of a retail
or wholesale or mere transfer nature,
would prove too much a burden on
the economic structure of the coun-
try," Professor Dickinson stated.
"Objectionable Methods"
"It seems to me that the Townsend-t
ites have presented an objectionable
method of raising the funds neces-~.
sary to carry their program," he de-
clared. "The successive transaction1
taxes would simply be passed onr
to the ultimate consumer, who can!
least afford to pay them; in this way
they would prove to be regressive
taxes - levies that hit poorer men.
"There would be poor people under1
the Townsend Plan, just as thereE
are today," Professor Dickinson add-
ed.
The possibility that old people, who
would be beneficiaries to the extent
of $200 a month under the Townsend
Plan, might actually support their
younger relatives was pointed out by
Professor Dickinson.
"This constitutes a two-fold objec-
tion to the plan," he said, "for it is
mandatory under the plan that the
young people work in order that their
elders be supported."
Enforcement Difficult
The administration and "enforce-a
ment" of the plan would become as
great difficulty Professor DickinsonL
stated.
The conviction that workers under"
60 years of age would be "soaked"
was exressed by professor Dickin-
son. "They would have more taxest
to pay and would be forced to deal
with a higher cost of living as thes
result of therinflationary nature ofr
the Townsend Plan," he said.
Professor Dickinson predicted thatt
the inception of the plan would de-
press rather than stimulate the marcht
toward recovery. The total effect ofI
the plan, he declared, would be detri-c
mental to business, would causeI
continual price fluctuations and in-t
come changes, and would promotef
bullish markets, speculation, and con-
sequent market relapses.-
"Buying and hiring uncertaintyt
would come with the Townsend Plan,"c
Professor Dickinson emphasized.
"And that uncertainty means de-
pression."I

Up For Two DaysE
It's a long, long time from Tues-
day night to Thursday night if you'ret
awake all that time, but not if you're
asleep. Ask Charles Morgan, '36. HeI
slept.E
The long and short of Morgan's 48-
hour somnolence seems to be about
as follows:
Sometime Tuesday evening he de-
cided that two or three sleeping po-
tions would help him to a restful
slumber. Somewhat later Tuesday
evening he staggered into his fra-
ternity house, put on an excellent
imitation of what his fraternity bro-
thersconsidered an imitation of com-
plete drunkenness, and doubled up
on the floor in the soundest of sleeps.
During momentary awakenings
Morgan made feeble efforts to un-
dress, attempts which ended with the
obliging' brothers bodily removing
him from within clothes closets and

under beds. Finally transferred to
a bed and pajamas, he revived, with a
burning desire to gargle. Into a
bathroom he went and gargled. Then
all was silence. Investigators found
him slumped in the bathtub, again
in the peaceful arms of Morpheus.
Wednesday noon Morgan had
roused himself to an attempt at eat-
ing. When he fell asleep in the
middle of the meal, alarmed bystand-

The Townsend Plan means life,
hope, and salvation for the Ameri-
can masses - the alternative is
chaos.
The common American is starving,
freezing, while across the road is
the table of plenty - the Townsend
Plan.
The operation of the Townsend
Plan would bring an economy of
abundance to all, would obliterate un-
employment, virtually eradicate
crime, and make America truly the
first nation of the world.
These statements were made, last
night by Charles Lockwood, Detroit
attorney, who addressed more than1
250 members of the newly-formed
Ann Arbor East Side Townsend Clubj
in a Nickel's Arcade auditorium.
Most of the townsendites presentc
last night were old people. They were
tremendously enthusiastic. They aret
all wrapped up in their plan. Alreadyt

Seek To Stem V
Resignations At
Michigan Statec
Agricultural Board Askss
$75,000 To Halt Exodust
Of Underpaid Teachers
EAST LANSING, Jan. 17. - (P) --f
The state board of agriculture soughtv
a $75,000 fund today with which toV
stem the flood of resignations amongV
underpaid members of the Michigans
State college faculty.
It voted yesterday to present a1
petition for such an appropriation tor
the next meeting of the augmented
state administrative board which
meets at the call of Gov. Fitzgerald.
The board announced, at the same
time, that it will use $12,000 of avail-
able Bankhead-Jones money to raise
the salaries of its 63 extension em-
ployes. Such money, a federal grant,
can only be used for extension work
purposes. It cannot be diverted to
the salaries of the resident teaching
faculty and research staff.
The board accepted the resigna-
tions of J. C. Van Camp, superin-
tendent of the forest nursery at the
college, and H. J. Gallagher, research
assistant in agricultural engineering,
both of whom are leaving to accepta
better paid positions. The resigna-
ions brought to 15 the number that
has left the faculty since Sept. 1 be-
cause better salaries could be earnedI
elsewhere.
Clark L. Brody, member of thet
board, termed the situation an "em-
ergency" demanding swift action.
Buildings and equipment are neces-
sary, Brody said, "but the brains
that make use of them are even moret
necessary. We must act swiftly toZ
prevent further losses of our valued
employees."
Brody explained that the college,d
with 1,245 more students now thant
it had in 1931-32, is operating on a c
budget that is $367,990 less than it
was at that time. He said depres-
sion-year pay cuts to the faculty
were not restored.(

Kipling Dies
5 Days After
An Operation
Writer Passes Away In
Hushed British Hospital
After Long Coma
Nurses Unaware Of
Nearness Of Death
Poet's Wife At Bedside;
Body May Be Buried In
Westminster Abbey
LONDON, Jan. 18. - (Saturday)-
(P) - Rudyard Kipling, famed Brit-
ish writer of tales and poems of
India, died suddenly at 12:00 a.m.
today in Middlesex Hospital, less than
ive days after he had undergone an
operation for a perforate stomach
ulcer.
Although he had not spoken and
had shown almost no visible signs of
life for several hours, even his nurses
were not aware his end was so near.
Snow fell outside and the entire
hospital was still when the dramatic
announcement of Kipling's death was
made. An excited messenger first
entered a waiting room and in a voice
stilled with emotion cried, "Mr. Kip-
ling is dead."
While it had been admitted the
writer's condition was "extremely
critical" during the evening, periodic
bulletins issued up to shortly before
his death said his condition was un-
changed.
Just before the end, however, Dr.
A. E. Webb-Johnson, realizing it was
unlikely that Kipling had sufficient
strength to rally, warned Mrs. Kip-
ling, who was at the bedside with
their daughter, to prepare for the
worst.
Only at the end, which came peace-
fully, did he seem to recognize his
wife and daughter. The two women,
worn out with grief after their long
vigil and almost in a state of col-
lapse, were put to bed by the hospital
staff soon after the noted author died.
It was not known whether Kip-
ling's body will be buried in West-
minster Abbey, the last resting place
of so many of Britain's famedI sons.
Schools Cause
Mental Quirkes,
Says MeClusky
Many Maladjustments Are
Traceable To Teachers,
He Says In Address
(Special to The Daily)
YPSILANTI, Jan. 17. - Teachers
and the school system were charged
with frequently causing mental mal-
adjustments in individuals by Prof.
Howard McClusky of the School of
Education in an address here today
to more than 400 instructors of the
handicapped at the Special Educa-
tion Conference.
He was backed by Clark Highee,
Grand Rapids probate judge, who
agreed that "many childish malad-
justments are traceable to school
teachers who ar themselves incap-
able of settling their own emotional
problems in a satisfactory manner."
"I predict that in the near future
we are going to cast aside useless em-
broidery and resort to just two kinds
of teacher-training," Professor Mc-
Clusky asserted. "With one we will
stress apprentice and practice teach-

ing, and with the other we will place
major emphasis on the child.
Prof. Lowell J. Carr of the sociology
department told the conference that
it was the school's duty to discover
the potential delinquent qualities in
a child before he reaches the juvenile
courts. He especially directed the
teachers' attention to day-dreamer
students, who thus seek escape from
the realities of life.

Governor Of New Jersey
Strikes At Critics; Attacks
Prosecution
Doubts Bruno Was
Ever In Nursery
Wilentz Cables Condon
That He Is Not Wanted
For More Questioning
TRENTON, N. J., Jan. 17. - (P) -
Gov. Harold G. Hoffman defended
his reprieve of Bruno Hauptmann to-
day with a statement defying im-
peachment proceedings, attacking the
prosecution and expressing his own
doubts that the condemned man was
ever in the Lindbergh nursery.
Only a few hours before Haupt-
mann would have died in the electric
chair but for the thirty-day reprieve,
the governor struck back sharply at
critics of his mysterious activities in
the case.
"I am worried," he said, "about the
eagerness of some of our law en-
forcement agencies to bring about the
death of this one man so that the
books may be closed in the thought
that another great crime mystery
has been successfully solved."
One of the governor's critics was
Attorney-General David T. Wilentz,
chief Hauptmann prosecutor.
In a cablegram to Dr. John F. (Jaf-
sie) Condon, ransom intermediary, in
Panama, Wilentz said that Condon
was not wanted here for further ques-
tioning.
Conden Offers To Return
This cablegram answered one from
Condon containing an offer to re-
turn voluntarily in view of the gov-
ernor's recent expression of a desire
to have him examined further.
"I regret the course taken by the
governor," Wilentz told Condon, "only
because it may be construed as a re-
flection upon "the state, the state's
witnesses and police authorities.
"The governor has assigned no rea-
son for granting the reprieve." No
further evidence has been called to
my attention by the governor or the
defense counsel."
But the governor's statement as-
serted that evidence he had which
be disclosed "in due course" caused
him to "question the truthfulness and
mental competency of some of the
chief witnesses for the state."
"I do doubt," the governor added,
"that this crime could have been com-
mitted by one man."
Wife Visits Hauptnann
As the sharp exchange occurred,
Hauptmann received a visit from his
wife, Anna,, and his spiritual adviser,
the Rev. John Matthiesen.
Mrs. Hauptmann was smiling hap-
pily when she came out. In mid-
afternoon she left for New York.
The reprieve, extending Haupt-
mann's span of life 60 to 90 days
by reason of the requirement for the
setting of a new death date, was
signed by Gov. Hoffman and delivered
to Col. Mark O. Kimberling, principal
keeper of the prison, at 3 p.m., five
hours before the time originally set
for the execution.
Reports circulated that a taxpayers'
legal move would be taken to force
the prison warden to carry out the
execution. High legal authorities
doubted, however, that action of this
kind could be successful in New Jer-
sey courts.
Possibility of a suit arose because
of the attorney general's opinion that

the State Constitution limits the
power of reprieve to a period of 90
days after conviction. However, Wil-
entz has said that he would not con-
test the governor's action.

Phoney Accents Irk
The Stanford Male
STANFORD UNIVERSITY, Jan.
17. - O-'} - If you're to believe Stan-
ford men, co-eds aren't made of
sugar and spice and everything nice.
They're made of messy lipstick,
giggles, off-key tunes, phony south-
ern accents and too many yard gowns.
Anyway, that seemed to be the con-
sensus of opinion as revealed by a
survey made by the Stanford Daily.
Pet "gripes" about the gals in-
-lude :
They daub lipstick in the middle
of their lips and leave the corners
unpainted. They invariably yell:
"Oh, I can't ride in the rumble seat:
I'll get my hair all mussed." They
sing off-key while dancing. They!
giggle when they're not supposed to,
but blank when told a good joke.
They're always fishing for compli-
ments. They gush. They never have
a definite answer. They superimpose
a southern accent on a New England
twang and sound like hillbillies. They
smear lipstick on palm beach suits.
'And (this may account for the
other "gripes") they delight in run-
ning around with other fellows.
N ye Attacked
By Glass For
Wilson Charge
Senator Shouts 'Coward'
At Investigator ; Others
Join In Denunciation
WASHINGTON, Jan. 17. - (A) -
With knuckles bleeding from vehe-
ment desk pounding, Senator Carter
lass, (Dem., Va.), today heaped a
scalding attack upon Senator Gerald
P. Nye, (Rep., N.D.), for calling
Woodrow Wilson a "falsifier."c
Not in the recollection of the Sen-
ate's veterans has such a searing in-
dictment echoed through the Cham-
ber as that of the outraged Virginian,
shouting "demagog," "coward," "men-
dacious," "malicious," at the hot-
faced Senator from North Dakota.
And there were others to join in
the attack -upon Nye - Majority
Leader Joseph T. Robinson of Ar-
kansas, James F. Byrnes of South
Carolina and Tom Connally of Texas
- Democrats all.

Review Evidence4
Earlier Nye had spent an hour re-4
viewing the evidence on which, as
chairman of the Munitions Commit-
tee, he based the charge that Wilson
had "falsified" 'intestifyingthat he
did not learn that the Allies had
secret treaties for dividing the terri-
torial spoils of war until after the
conflict had ended.
"If it were permissible in the Sen-
ate," said Glass, his voice hoarse and
low, "to say that any man who would
asperse the integrity and veracity of
Woodrow Wilson is a coward, if it
were permissible to say that his
charge is not only malicious but posi-
tively mendacious, that I would be
glad to say here and elsewhere to any
man, whether he be a United States
Senator or not.
"Such a charge is not only destitute
of decency, but such a shocking ex-
hibition as never has happened in
the Senate in the 35 years I have
served in the Congress of the United
States."
Pounds Desk
So vehement did the Virginian be-
come that time after time he smashed
his fist upon his desk until, finally,,
the hard flesh of his knuckles split
and a trickle of blood coursed down
and dropped from his wrist.
Even as Glass was speaking, the
state department released war time
documents showing that Ambassador
Walter Hines Page, at London, had
reported to the department in 1915
that some of the Allies had a secret
bargain to give Italy a big chunkof
Austria-Hungary in return for her
entry into the war.
At the same time, Secretary Cordell
Hull told newsmen:
"I served in an official capacity dur-
ing Mr. Wilson's administration and
I have the highest regard for his pa-
triotism and scrupulous honesty."

Charge Hit
By ..Reeves
Political Scientist Contends
Nye Is Tryng To 'Make
A Scoundrel' Of Wilson
Slosson Agrees That
Term Is Too Harsh

By FRED WARNER NEAL
The charge that Senator Gerald
P. Nye is trying to "make a scoun-
Irel" of President Woodrow Wilson
was made last night by Prof. Jesse
S. Reeves, chairman of the political
cience department.
Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the
history department also said he
hought Senator Nye's treatment of
he World War President was "too
harsh."
"I don't like the spectacle of Sen-
ator Nye trying to make a soundrel
out of a President of the United
States," Professor Reeves declared,
referring to Senator Nye's statement
hat President Wilson "falsified"
when he told the Senate foreign re-
lations committee in 1919 that he
had no knowledge of'secret treaties
among the Allies for dividing spoils
of the World War.
Defend Wilson
The professors came to the defense
of the wartime president in inter-
views yesterday.
However, Professor Reeves agreed
with Professor Slosson that Presi-
dent Wilson must have known some-
thing about the secret treaties be-
cause they were widely published here
after their disclosure at the time of
the Bolshevik revolution in Russia in
the fall of 1917.
But nevertheless, the chairman of
the political science department, an
authority on United States foreign-
relations, held that "I don't think
Senator Nye isarman whosis goig
o write a history of this nation
to the satisfaction of the American
people."
Both Professors Reeves and Slos-
son, agreed that Senator Nye's in-
vestigation is bringing to light noth-
ing materially new. "It is all pretty
old stuff," Professor Slosson said,
"although it is well worth ventilating
again."
Data Not New
"The things that are being pulled
out at the investigation are all to be
found in books and in the letters of
Walter Hines Page and Colonel
House," Professor Reeves asserted.
I see nothing new that is being dis-
covered."
Mr. Page was the American am-
bassador to England at the time of
the war, and Col. E. M. House was
President Wilson's confidential ad-
visor.
The controversy, which reached its
height in Washington last night, is
regarding Senator Nye's epithet of
"falsifier," hurled at President Wil-
son when, he said in the course of
his munitions investigations: "It is
evident that Wilson was fully ap-
praised of the . secret treaties and
that he falsified in asserting he had
no knowledge of them until after the
war."
Addressing the Senate foreign re-
lations committee in 1919, President
Wilson declared he had "no knowl-
edge" of the treaties until they were
called to his attention at the Ver-
sailles Peace Conference. According
