LeBrun Looks
Anxiously For
New Premier

Needs 'Funeral Cabinet' So
Foreign Minister Can Go
To King George's Burial
Leaders Refuse To
Form Government
Sarraut Attempts To Make
Transition Government;
Is Expected To Fail
PARIS, Jan. 23. - U P) -President
Albert LeBrun tonight anxiously
sought a "funeral" cabinet which
would enable a foreign minister to go
with him to London to represent
the French nation at the burial of
King George.
Former Premier Albert Sarraut,
a veteran of 19 cabinets, explored the
possibilities of forming a transition
government. Most political forecast-
ers predicted he would fail.
After continued consultations with
prospective ministers until late to-
night, Sarraut said he would give a
definite answer to President LeBrun
tomorrow. Sarraut, a member of the
radical socialist party, was premier
for a month in 1933.
Four leaders have already declined
invitations to form governments to
face pressing domestic and foreign
policies, following the collapse yester-
day of the government of Premier
Pierre Laval.
They were Jules Jeannerey and Fer-
nand Bouisson, president of the Sen-
ate and chamber of deputies, who tra-
ditionally are first offered the prem-
iership; Edouard Herriot who was

LONDON, Jan. 23. - 0P)--Britain's
King Edward VIII stood in silent
prayer today before the body of his
father, George V. borne in death to
lie in a temporary tomb of state in
medievalWestminster Hall.
Haggard and apparently weary, he
prayed with all of England as the
body of King George was placed in
its black and gold resting place with
simple ceremonies, at the end of a
100-mile journey from rustic Sand-
ringham, where the monarch died
Monday night.
Tonight stalwart yeomen and
household troops, their brilliant uni-,
forms partly hidden by cloaks of
somber black, stood watch over the
body as it lay in its oaken casket be-
neath the royal standard.
Crown On Bier
Eight persons only stood there
through the night. At each of the
four corners of the purple-based cata-
falque was a lifeguard, head bowed
and immobile, resting on his sword.

As Trumped Up Rumor
GENEVA, Jan. 23. - (P) - Bitter
debate broke out in the "family of
nations" today when Soviet Russia's
delegate charged by implication be-
fore the League council that Japan,
Germany and Italy have policies of
aggression constituting "the utmost
danger to world peace.,,
Maxim Litvinoff, Moscow's com-
missar for foreign affairs, made the
attack upon the three.
He was discussing the Soviet ap-
peal to the League against Uruguay's
frequent action in breaking off diplo-
matic relations with her. This disn
pute was virtually postponed until
the May meeting of the council, when
a committee composed of members
from Roumania, Spain and Denmark
was appointed to investigate the pos-
sibility of conciliation.
Neither Japan nor Germany is a
member of the League, but the Uru-
guayan and Italian delegates were
quick to reply heatedly. Alberto N.
Guani, Montevideo's representative,
said the time had come fro the na-
tions to take defensive measures
against the policies emanating from
Moscow, which he described as a pro-
gram to destroy "families, religions,
the social order and civilization it-

Litvinoff had denied Soviet inter-
ference in Uruguay and intimated
that the South American nation de-
cided to sever relations because of
Moscow's refusal to buy large quan-
tities of cheese from her.
For the first time since shortly af-
ter the war began, the Italian dele-
gate remained in his seat at the
council table when representatives of
Ethiopia were present.

Daily editorials get results-almost.
Prof. Lewis G. VanderVelde yester-
day devoted a portion of the lecture
in his History 143 course to a discus-
sion of the leading editorial in The
Daily Thursday morning urging that
professors dismiss their classes on
the hour instead of holding them over.
His remarks, however, were limited to
a mixed metaphor concerning the
"long-winded instructor who has one
more 'pearl' to voice."
"The actual metaphor, 'to cast
pearls,' might give rise to a connota-
tion unfortunate for the students," he
commented. "But I suppose that it
may be a clever euphonism implying
satirically that if the pearl the in-
structor was about to cast was at all
worthwhile, it would be too big to

A retreat from the highly indus-

western world today to the simplicity:
of the past was urged last night by
Dorothy Thompson, newspaper cor-
respondent, and wife of Sinclair Lew-
is, in her Oratorical Association lec-
ture on "Rediscovering America."
Miss Thompson declared that de-

knowledge and industrial efficiency

Citing unemployment, loss of in-
dividualism, and stagnation of for-
eign trade as characteristic problems'
confronting modern Europe and
United States, she asserted that such'
questions should be solved by revert-'
ing to the contented, unambitious
philosophy of such countries as Den-
mark and France.
Miss Thompson repeatedly pointed
out the sharpness of the unemploy-
ment problem in the world today,
emphasizing that it is a situation in-
herent in the advanced state of tech-
nological efficiency.1
She described the Sinclair-inspired
California system whereby the unem-
ployed are put to work salvaging ar-
ticles to be used by other unemployed
as "one of the most reactionary plans
I have ever heard of in the Western1
hemisphere," and said that it was an

Ann Arbor's coldest spell of the
year, plunging the mercury to 7.4
degrees below zero, is expected to ease
The slow but steady rise of the
barometer since yesterday morning,
as reported by the University Observ-
atory weather bureau, indicated that
rising temperatures and fair weather,
can be expected for today. The bar-
ometer, reading at 7 p.m. yesterday
stood at 29.12.
During the period from 7 p.m. Wed-
nesday, to 7 p.m. yesterday, the high-
est temperatures recorded at the Ob-
servatory, was 10 degrees above zero
and the lawest 7.4 below zero. The
low point came shortly before niid-
night yesterday. The average of all
temperatures throughout the entire
cold wave was estimated at 1.3 degrees
above zero.
Although there was no precipitation

Students are bearing practical wit-
ness to the state of the weather with
their various styles of dress, designed
primarily for comfort rather than at-

Verdict Again
At Scottsboro

DECATUR, Ala., Jan. 23. - (.T) -
Heywood Patterson, one of the Negro
defendants in the "Scottsboro Case,"
was convicted and sentenced to 75
yeairs in the penitentiary by a Morgan
County jury today.
It was Patterson's fourth trial on
charges of attacking Mrs. Victoria
Price aboard a freight train in Jack-
son County, March 25, 1931. He was
sentenced to death in the three prev-
ious trials, but the cases were reversed.
After a decision had been reached,
Judge W. W. Callahan delayed the
jury's report while the jury was being
chosen for the trial of Clarence Nor-
ris, another of the nine Negro de-
fendants in the case.

Sports Writers, Daily Files Tell
History Of Notre Dame Break

The current controversy regard-
ing the resumption of football rela-
tionships between Michigan and
Notre Dame, broken in 1910, took a
new aspect yesterday as the spot-
light was turned upon the original
basis for the break.
Writing in the Detroit News yester-
day, John E. McManus, '22, de-
scribed the break as a result of feel-
ing against Frank C. "Shorty" Long-
man, a former Michigan player who
coached the Notre Dame team of
1909. In that year, during a period
which McManis describes as one in
which "evidences of disloyalty, no
matter how slight, were fighting top-
ics and unforgivable offenses." The

In the Detroit Free Press this
morning, W. W. Edgar, sports editor,
writes that the break came at the
time of the scheduled grid meeting
of the two teams in 1910 when Mich-

because of the presence of two play-
ers "who had come from a junior
college in Walla Walla, Wash., and
