Extra-Period Victory Gives

Chances To Tally During
Game InSet-Up Shots
Staging an extra-period drive that
overpowered a fighting Iowa quintet,
Michigan's basketball team won an
overtime victory, 31 to 27 last night
at Yost Field House for its third Con-
ference victory to remain a dangerous
threat in the race for the Big Ten
The victory put the Wolverines in
undisputed third place in the Confer-
ence standings as Wisconsin lost to
Indiana and Northwestern dropped
a close game ,to Minnesota by a 30
to 29 score.
A crowd of over 5,000 cheering fans
saw the rangy Wolverine team con-
trol the ball almost completely dur-
ing the five minute overtime period
and allow George Rudness to hit a
long shot to break the tie and Chelso
Tamagno to put the game on "ice"
with a "dog" after Matt Walsh, Iowa
center, had staged a one-man rally
to tie the score at 27 to 27 at the
end of the regulation 40 minutes.
Game Is Cloe
The game was close throughout,
neither team getting more than a six-
point lead, as Michigan missed set-
up after set-up despite the brilliant
passing of Jake Townsend, which gave
the Varsity numerous chances to

During the first half it seemed as
if the Hawkeye strategy would suc-
ceed despite frequent substitution,
but in the second period the Wolver-

Backboard Play Gives Edge
While the superiority off the back-
board failed to give the Varsity much
of an advantage in the second half
with Walsh hitting regularly, in the
overtime it gave the Wolverines the
edge that meant the game for Mich-
igan and defeat for Iowa. Following
Rudness' long shot the Varsity kept
possession of the ball for two-min-
utes straight before the Hawkeyes
were able to break through the Wol-
verines' passing stall. Even after
they finally did break through, it was
only momentary for the Townsends

Water Rates In
Ann Arbor Will
Rise On Feb. 1
City Council Votes 13-1 To
Increase Revenue From
Water Supply
Ann Arbor's City Council today

approved by a 13-1 vote the suggested
50 per cent raise in city water rates,
to be in force over a 12 month period
beginning Feb. 1.
With the increased revenue which
will be received from the rate in-
crease, the city expects to be able to
finance the proposed water softening
plant without resorting to a bond
issue or floating a loan.
The cost of the water plant is esti-
mated at $400,000, of which $189,-
565.88 is already available in the
water department's treasury. Under
the present rates the surplus obtained
between Feb. 1 and July 31, 1937 is
estimated at $132,000 and the in-
crease would provide another $89,430
surplus, thus completely financing the

League Council
Meets, Waitingr
11 Duce's Move
No Action For Settlement
Of War Zone Situation
Is Taken As Yet
GENEVA, Jan. 20.--(P)-The
League of Nations council sat in a
long-awaited session today but made
no move to settle the Italo-Ethiopian
war. 4
Despite new protests from Ethi-
opia, for aid, the council rejected
a plea from Emperor Haile Selassie
to send a commission of inquiry to
the war zone and to give the empire
financial aid.
The impression prevailed tonight
that the council, dismayed at the
collapse of previouspeace efforts
under its auspices, now waits for
Mussolini to make a move,
Baron Pompeio Aloisi, the Italian
delegate, attended the council ses-
sion but was silent. Premier Mus-
solini disclosed no signs of coming
forward with a new peace proposal.
One Italian said: "Italy herself
will arrange the Ethiopian question.
We shall not accept any League-im-
posed peace."
Emperor Haile Selassie, in a luridly
worded plea, asked for new economic
sanctions against Italy and for funds.
The committee of 13 - which is
the council without Italy and Ethi-
opia - turned down his financial re-
quest on the ground that the League
convention providing for financial
aid for victims of aggression has
never gone into force.

King George V Dies After 4-Day
Sickness And Prince Of Wales
Becomes Ruler Of Great Britain

Beloved Monarch Mourned By Great Empire

Royal Family Attends Monarch;
Parliament Called For Meeting
SANDRINGHAM, England, Jan. 20.-- (AP) -King George V
died tonight after a four-day illness. The Prince of Wales, 41-year-old
bachelor who automatically became ruler of the far flung British empire,
was present at his bedside along with Queen Mary, the Princess Royal, the
Duke of York, and the Duke and Duchess of Kent.
Death came at 11:55 p.m. (6:55 p.m. E.S.T.).
Crowds stood outside the gates of the royal residence and talked
in hushed tones, their heads bared. They looked up the hill toward the
"big house" with tears in their eyes.
As his long-taxed strength ebbed slowly today, his faithful Queen
and four sons, acting as a Council of State, took over the royal duties
of the British throne.
Responsible persons described the King's slow weakening late today
as ta general slowing up of the bodily system." Every effort was made

British King Chooses Edward'
From Long List Of First Names

Is First Unmarried Ruler
In British History, Says
Professor Cross
The eyes of a world mourning the
dead British monarch, George V, turn
to the new king of England, Edward,
VIII, former Prince of Wales, whoj
is now on the throne.

The new king of England, who will
be 42 years old June 23, according to
Prof. Arthur L. Gross of the history
department, is named Edward Albert
Christian George Andrew Patrick
David Windsor. While the name
under which the former Prince of
Wales will rule - Edward VIII- was
optional, it has long been expected
that the Prince would take that name,
Professor Cross said last night.
Although he signed his name "Ed-
ward" almost immediately after the
death of the 70-year old George V.,
Professor Cross explained that it was
probably chosen after consultation
with the Royal Family and members
of the cabinet. He pointed out that
Edward VII, father of King George,
was called "Bertie" by his immediate
family, his first name being Albert.
King George was want to call his
heir David, and the latter, according

to reports, adopted that as his favor-
ite name. As Prince of Wales he was
always held in high regard by King
George. The story is told that when,
near death in 1928, the king aroused
from a coma to see the Prince at his
bedside, he murmured: "Davy."
Thenew king Edward VIII will be
the first unmarried adult British ruler
in modern times, Professor Cross de-
clared. The last unmarried king of
England, another Edward - the
Sixth - Professor Cross explained.
died at the age of 16 in 1553. The boy
monarch, the son of the notorious
Henry VIII and brother of Queen
Elizabeth, began his reign in 1547, the
English history authority stated.
Although it had long been rumored
that the Prince of Wales might re-
fuse the throne, Professor Cross said
last night shortly before tie stricken
king died that he "doubted it very
much." He pointed to the fact that
when King George was ill with pleu-
risy, in 1928, his first son was borne
at top speed by a British cruiser all
the way from Africa and that the
Prince had always taken an active
interest in the affairs of the realm.
The new king as the Prince of
Wales was always democratic and
"extremely popular" with all the
British peoples, Professor Cross as-'
serted, predicting that his ascension
to the throne would involve "in all
probability" no serious consequences
for England. This belief was shared
by Dr. Harlow J. Heneman, British
government authority of the political
science department, who held that
the British monarchy would go on
