Say Michigan Officials
Must Move First
Renewal Of Athletic
Relations Is Sought
Aigler, O'Donnell, Layden
All Consider Yost Key
Man In Negotiations
That the first step towards a re-!
sumption of football relationships be-
tween the University of Michigan and
the University of Notre Dame rests
with the authorities of the former
school was made clear last night in
interviews with the Reverend Father
John H, O'Donnell, chairman of the
Faculty Board in 'Control of Ath-
letics at Notre Dame, and Elmer F.
Layden, the school's Director of Ath-
Father O'Donnell, in a telephone'
conversation with The Daily, said, "I
am very happy to learn of the move-
ment being sponsored by The Michi-
gan Daily toward the resumption of
athletic relations between the Uni-
versity of Michigan and the Uni-
versity of Notre Dame, and at the
proper time, upon recommendation
of Mr. Layden, our Director of Ath-
letics, I shall bQ glad to present the
matter to our Faculty Board in Con-
trol of Athletics for its official con-
Board Must Approve Game
Father O'Donnell pointed out that
the scheduling procedure of his school
necessitates the introduction to the
Board by the Director of Athletics
of proposed contests.
In Detroit last night, Director Lay-
den was quoted, "I have nothing to
say, and will make no comment until
approached officially by Michigan
The possibility of a r_ onciliation
of football relationships between the
two schools, broken in 1910 although
there have been meetings in other
sports since that date, was pointed
out Sunday in The Hot Stove, sports
column of The Daily, by Fred De-
Lano, junior sports"editor.
At that time DeLano quoted Field-
ing H. Yost, Michigan director of ath-
letics, as saying that he thought he
would have no objections to a re-
sumption of relationships if there
were no difference in eligibility re-
quirements between Notre Dame and
the Western Conference, or schools
met by the University of Michigan..
No Difference In Ruling
The column showed that there was
no existing difference in that respect
and made a strong appeal that rela-
tions making for one of the greatest
rivalries in intercollegiate athletics
because of the schools' locations and
records, be resumed.
Opposition on the part of Director
Yost to the reconciliation has long
been understood to be the only ob-
stacle in the way of the renewal of re-
lationships. Throughout the period
since grid connections were broken
Director Yost has consistently based
his opposition on the basis of "elig-
ibility differences."
Despite that attitude on the part of
the Michigan director, Father O'Don-
nell said Notre Dame has throughout
the period never felt anything but
the kindest regards for Michigan as a
school whose athletic teams were' dis-

tinguishing themselves for their com-
petitive records and for their con-
structive sportsmanship, adding that
he felt a renewal would be "wel-
comed" by Notre Dame students and
Yost Out Of Town
Director Yost, who must initiate
any proposal for the scheduling of
athletic contests before their consid-
eration by the Michigan Board in
Control of Physical Education, the
body corresponding to Notre Dame's
Faculty Board, could not be reached
last night. Yost left Monday to at-
tend the funeral in Nashville, Tenn.,
of Dan McGugin, his brother-in-law
and former Michigan grid star, and
it is expected that he will not return
for a month.
Professor Ralph W. Aigler, chair-
man of the Michigan Board in Con-
trol of Physical Education, refused
'to comment last night, beyond saying
that it would be necessary for the
Michigan Director or football coach
to initiate' any action before consid-
eration by the committee which he

To Contain Wealth
Of Novel Features!
The J-Hop issue of the Gargoyle
will be on sale Thursday, it was an-
nounced yesterday by Norman Wil-
liamson, '36, business manager.
"J-Hop sAnticipationand Real-
ity," a double page of cartoons cari-
caturing typical bigwigs at the zen-
ith of campus social affairs, will be
one of the outstanding features in the
February Gargoyle, according to Wil-
"The candid camera will again pro-
vide a full page of amusing illustra-
tions, this tine catching some mem-
bers of the faculty at their more gro-
tesque activities," he said. An ar-
ticle on J-Hop styles for women will
also be featured in the new Gargoyle,
according to Williamson.
Pay-offs will be as abundant. asl
ever in the coming issue, because Gor-
don Tonker, '39, of the Nu Mu Mu
house, will again contribute some of
the comment, this time on some side-
lights of the J-Hop, Williamson said.
Another feature that usually waxes
vituperative is "Preposterous People,"
and according to Williamson, this
month's victim is to be a University
sports celebrity. The ten cent price
will still prevail, Williamson stated,
and the magazines will be sold by
campus salesmen and in Angell Hall
and University Hall.

Roosevelt Holds Supreme
Court Reversed Itself On
Rights Of Congress
Propose To A mend
Conservation Act
Justice Of Court's AAA
Decision Is Challenged
By Secretary Wallace
WASHINGTON, Jan. 21. - (P) -
President Roosevelt plainly intimated
today he believed the Supreme Court
had reversed a twice-taken stand up-
holding the right of Congress to limit
the functions of courts.
His comment coincided with re-
marks of two cabinet members ex-
pressing sharp concern over the
court's processing tax decision in the
Louisiana rice millers' case which ac-
cepts the taxation rule of "pay first
and litigate later."
Almost simultaneously, a. White
House "go ahead" signal was given
congressional advisers for introduc-
tion of new farm aid legislation to
replace the invalidated AAA for a
two-year period.
Bills amending the soil conserva-
tion act, and possibly appropriating
five hundred million dollars, it was
announced, will be submitted to both
Senate and House immediately to
enable continuance of crop adjust-
ment and payment of federal sub-
sidies to farmers.
Wallace Scores Decision
Earlier, Secretary Wallace had
bluntly challenged the "justice" of the
decision in a radio address, and had
asserted emphatically that "AAA is
not dead."
Attorney-General Cummings also
told newsmen it was "very likely" that
the high tribunal's action would re-
sult in a flood of new injunction suits
impounding taxes levied under other
New Deal laws.
Reporters asked for comment on
the processing tax ruling. The exec-
utive said he wondered about its ef-
fect on the Bailey vs. George de-
cisions of the high tribunal. The

House To Act Finally On
Measure Today; To Go

Appropriation For
Pavment Not Made
Inflation Advocates Plan
Fight For New Money
To Pay Certificates
WASHINGTON, Jan. 21. -(WP) -
An influential group in Congress to-
day contemplated a joint appeal to
President Roosevelt to let the new
Bonus Bill become a law without sign-
ing or vetoing the measure - as per-
mitted by the Constitution.
Without reaching a decision, they
studied in the interim the question
of appropriating funds for the huge
outlay. An appaently growing dis-
position to attach an appropriation
to a pending deficiency bill was tem-
pered by doubts that an accurate
estimate of the amount needed could
be obtained in time.
Proponents of a proposal to pay
the bonus with new money indicated
that they would make the inflation
fight when the appropriation effort
was started.
The bill itself spent the day in a
pigeon-hole awaiting routine House
action to approve changes made by
the Senate yesterday in passing the
bill by a stampede vote of 74 to 16.
The House was scheduled to take
final action tomorrow, sending the
measure to the White House.
As approved by the Senate, the
measure now calls for redemption in
$50 bonds which the veterans can
transform into almost immediate cash
by the simple process of presenting
them at the windows of their local
What President Roosevelt will do
remained unknown. A year ago when
it was proposed that the bonus be
paid in newly printed money, he re-
jected the idea with a personally de-
livered veto message, opposing not
only the payment plan but also the
idea of redeeming the bonus certifi-
cates in advance of their due date.
The Constitution says that if Con-
gress remains in session for 10 days
after passing a measure and the Pres-
ident takes no action, the measure
becomes law anyway.
Abbott Laughs
At Threats Of
Elmer O'Hara
Separate Convention Plan
Ridiculed By Democratic
National Committeeman
Horatio J. Abbott ridiculed last
night threats of Elmer B. O'Hara, re-
pudiated chairman of the State Dem-
ocratic Committee, that he will call
a convention of his own this spring,
apart from the "regular" convention,
and at the same time announced that
he will seek re-election as Democratic
national committeeman from Mich-
O'Hara was recently convicted of
bribery in connection with sewer con-
tracts in Macomb County and was
ousted as a result from his position
as Wayne County Clerk. Repudiated

at a meeting of state Democratic
leaders, he was reported last week as
saying that he would hold his own
state convention and that he would
have sufficient followers to inaugurate
a campaign.
"I don't expect that anything like
that will happen," Abbott declared,
referring to O'Hara's statement.
"After all, it takes a group of persons
to make a convention. O'Hara doesn't
have any following. The idea of his
starting a convention is out of the

I will be a candidate" for re-election
to the post of Democratic national
committeeman. "It all depends how

Yon Koepenick' Is
Captain, Not Bruno
Bruno Hauptmann in the movies
would certainly draw the crowds. At
least that's the way an official of
the Art Cinema League feels after
hearing town residents asking when
the famous star of the Lindbergh
case had time to act in the Gernan
film, "Der Hauptmann von Koepe-
nick" which is being shown tonight
in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
The league official, who must re-
main unnamed because he feels he
has betrayed confidences, said people
had called him to find out more about
"von Koepenick" although they said
they were fairly sure about the mean-
ing of "Der" and absolutely certain
about "Hauptmann." "Von Koepe-
nick" was guessed to mean anything
from a German baron to a passenger
According to the spokesman, the
misunderstanding may have arisen
from the posters which have been
hung on the bulletin boards, for
"Hauptmann" is the word that
catches the eye first, and in their
rush to get wherever they go, the
questioners didn't bother to read fur-
"Hauptmann," however, means
captain and "Koepenick" is the name
of a tank town in Germany where
the hero of the picture, one Karl
Adelbert, an ex-convict, established
himself as a virtual dictator by rea-
son of a pawned army captain's uni-
form he had bought. The film is a
satire on German militarism and
illustrates the conviction that the
uniform and not the man underneath
is the factor which makes for respect
and fear.

Edward VIII Takes
Oath Of Accession;
Is Pledged Loyalty

Prince Of Wales And
King Now Identical
King Edward VIII, who succeeded
his father Monday night to the Brit-
ish throne, is still Prince of Wales,
Prof. Morley S. Scott of the history
department pointed out yesterday.
"The title resides in the person of
the Prince of Wales even when he be-
comes king," Professor Scotthsaid.
"It is his to use or confer at will."
He explained, however, that tradi-
tionally the King gave the title only
to his first born son, and although it
might be the King's te use if he so
desired, he never did so.
Should King Edward VIII die with-
out leaving an heir and Albert, Duke'
of York, succeed him, Albert's first
son-would be given the title of Prince
of Wales, Professor Scott said.
Niebuhr Finds
Party Imminent
Predicts Industrial And
Agrarian Workers Will
Join Forces
A farmer-labor party of national
significance by 1940 was predicted by
Prof. Reinhold Niebuhr, of the Union
Theological Seminary, in an address'
delivered last night in the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre.
Professor Niebuhr, who spoke on
"Facing World Catastrophe," stressed
this alignment of interests of thej
agrarian forces and those of the in-
dustrial workers in connection with
the situation which he asserted con-
fronts the people in America. He
stated that the combination of the
forces of the farm worker with the
industrial employees was not as
simple as it appeared on the surface.
"There exists, even among the agrar-
ians themselves, many different views
in regard to joining the ranks of in-
dustrial labor," Professor Niebuhr
Professor Niebuhr believed that this
combine of agrarians with the
strength of industrial labor, well or-
ganized by vertical unions, would be
the real third party of the future.
He stated that none of the present
third parties seemed to have the pow-
er to grow into significant political
Looking toward the foreign situa-
tion, Professor Niebuhr asserted that
the conditions in Japan, Germany,
and Italy were extremely grave.
"These are the countries," he said,
"in which strong imperialistic dic-
tatorships are existent. Because of
the conditions in Japan, Germany
dictatorship armament programs, war
is almost inevitable."
Professor Niebuhr added that the
present Italian invasion of Ethiopia
is only a dress rehearsal of what will
happen when Germany declares war.
He said that "this dress rehearsal
hasn't been very successful to date;
but then, dress rehearsals usually
The situation in Europe would be-
come exceedingly dangerous, Profes-
sor Niebuhr said, in the event that
an alliance is effected between Ger-
many and Japan.

King George's Body Lies
Before Silver Altar Of
Sandringham Church
Edward Flies To
London Ceremony
Proclamation Of New King
Will Be Made Today As
Tradition Dictates
LONDON, Jan. 21.--(P)-Edward
VIII, Great Britain's new bachelor
king, broke tradition today by flying
to London to take the oath of acces-
sion and receive a pledge of loyalty
from his Parliament in historic cere-
monies. His new title was used for
the first time before parliament.
While the world mourned him, the
body of King George V, beloved sev-
enty-year-old ruler who died at 11:55
p.m. last night, lay tonight before
a silver altar in the parish church
at Sandringham, which stands on a
wind-swept ridge.
Through sleet and rain, the simple
oak coffin containing the monarch's
body was carried on a hand bier by a
detachment of Grenadier guards to
the church.
The body will be taken to London
Thursday to lie in state in West-
minster Hall until next Tuesday,
when it will be removed to Windsor
Castle for the funeral in St. George's
Chapel. Burial will be at Windsor.
Edward's dramatic flight from
Sandringham to London to begin his
reign indicated that as king he would
rule in his own particular manner,
one which marked his colorful career
a$ Prince of Wales. He became to-
day the first British sovereign to
Medieval customs marked two af-
ternoon ceremonies following the
king's arrival by airplane.
To Broadcast Ceremonies
He took the oath of accession at an
assembly of the Privy Council at St.
James' Palace and a short time later
parliament swore allegiance to the
new king.
Age-old pageantry will formally
proclaim him king at 10 a.m. tomor-
row from four places in London -
St. James' Palace, Charing Cross,
Temple Bar and the Royal Exchange.

The ceremonies will be rebroadcast
over WXYZ at 5 a.m. Detroit time.
The bachelor status of Edward was
sharply emphasized during the tradi-
tional loyalty ceremony in the House
of Lords.
The solitary throne, with its royal
red covering, stood on e dais. For
nearly a quarter of a century there
were thrones for King George and
Queen Mary and also a chair for the
Prince of Wales alongside his father.
Since the Prince of Wales is now
also king, this chair, as well as Queen
Mary's throne, was removed. Mem-
bers of Parliament swore "allegiance
to His Majesty, King Edward VIII,
his heirs and successors, according to
the law," and signed the roll. Women
in the galleries wore complete mourn-
ing, even black stockings.
King Takes Oath
To the Privy Council, which met
in a session of less than an hour
at St. James' Palace, the King swore:
"I, Edward Albert Christian George
Andrew Patrick David, solemnly and
sincerely, in the presence of God, pro-
fess, testify and declare that I am
a faithful member of the Protestant
Reformed Church by law established
in England, and that I shall, accord-
ing to the true intent of enactments
which secure the Protestant succes-
sion to the throne of the realm, up-
hold and maintain said enactments
to the best of my powers, accprding
to law."
When the King reached London he
drove by automobile through streets
lined with thousands of his subjects.
They doffed their hats and curtesied

but no cheers went up.
Although Edward automatically be-
came King upon his father's death,
the formal coronation ceremony will
not be held for more than a year.
Then the official period of mourning
will be over.

million dollars this year in promoting
safety education, it is understood. The
Ford Motor Co. will cooperate, it was
learned, although it is not a member
of the A.M.A.
All members of the automotive in-
dustry are backing this "most com-
prehensive, cooperative educational
program for greater safety on our
streets and highways thatrhas yet
been attempted by the industry," Ma-
cauley said.
Paul G. Hoffman, chairman of the
A.H.A. traffic safety program, de-
clared that "the primary responsi-
bility for highway safety belongs with
the public officials." He pointed out
that the chief function of private
groups who represent organized pub-
lic sentiment is to support the of-
ficial agencies with a broad, vigorous
program of public education.
Activities will include inter-city
safety contests, renewal of school
safety essay and safety lesson con-
tests, expansion of schoolboy patrol
and high school driver training, vig-
orous support for law enforcement,
dissemination of films, literature and
educational material and assistance
in training traffic control personnel.

McCardle Case Outlined
A southern editor of that name
had been jailed under the martial
rules prevailing in many southern
states. He sought a writ of habeas
corpus to obtain his release.
While his case was pending in the
court, Congress enacted a general sta-
tute forbidding the Supreme Court
to consider appeals for habeas corpus
in military cases.
'When the case reached the high
court in 1867, that tribunal dismissed
it, upholding the right of Congress
to place restrictions on the function
of the judiciary.
The second case dealt with the tax
placed upon articles moving in inter-
state commerce and produced by child
labor, whereby Congress sought to
discourage the employment of chil-
On the same day that the court held
the child labor tax unconstitutional
it denied the injunction, basing its
action on the stand taken in the
McCardle case, and an act of com-
merce passed in 1867 forbidding lower
courts from enjoining collection of
taxes except under certain specified

For Unified Con trol Over Traffic

shortly before he was scheduled to
speak last night on "Facing World
This energetic, six-foot theologian,
who certainly did not resemble the
popular conception of a clergyman,
recalled the victory of the students
of New York state last year over
the proposed bill which provided for
the student oath. He stated that
students from various institutions in
the above state went to the legisla-
ture in Albany and showed such op-

apparent ambiguity, Professor Nie-
buhr replied that he is a conservative

of the old religious concepts, such1

he added, "I maintain myself to be
radical in religion to the extent that
I believe in a more active program on
the part of religious teachers. My
plan of action is much more vigorous
than that of the religious liberal."
Professor Niebhtar stated that al-
though he hoped that the United
States would enter the League of Na-
tions, he did not believe that the
present crisis in war-clouded Europe
should be used as a measure to press
the United States into joining. "We
should devote our attention to enact-

single responsibility of all the agencies
involved in the direction and control

stressed yesterday by Prof. John S.
Worley, head of the department of
transportation engineering and di-
rector of the safety drive now being
conducted in Detroit, in an interview
Professor Worley drew an analogy
between a city's automobile traffic and
the traffic on a typical railroad in
emphasizing the importance of coor-
dinated effort. Both railroads and
cities add strips of land and con-
struct roadways in a similar fashion

anything to do with its activities with-
out adequate education and train-

one to drive and use its streets with
practically no consideration as to
education or traiping in the ways of
safe driving.
Every other phase of automobile
traffic, such as the enforcement of
traffic regulations, the prosecution of
violations, the planning of lighting
and traffic signal'facilities - all these
phases, no matter how efficient in
themselves, are inadequate without
central administration and coordina-
tion, he stated.
