WASHINGTON, Oct. 5. - (') -
Frankly recognizing a "state of war"
between Italy and Ethiopia, President
Roosevelt tonight declared anim-
mediate embargo on American ship-
ments of "arms, munitions, and im-
plements of war" to either nation.
Acting under provisions of the new
neutrality act, in an effort to assure
the United States shall not become
involved in the conflict, the President
confined the embargo to implements
and munitions actually used in war-
These included, airplanes, airplane
engines and parts, rifles, guns, am-
diiunitions, poison gas, warships and
their equipment. Hereafter, . any
American who violates the embargo
may be punished by a $10,000 fine, 5
years imprisonment, or both.
Carefully maintaining a neutral
position, however, the president's pro-
ciamation made no attempt to define
either Italy or Ethiopia as the "ag-

ASMARA, Eritrea, Oct. 5. - () -
Two powerful columns of Ethiopian
regular troops advanced to a new
position late this afternoon in the
vicinity of Aduwa, as Italian mili-
tary sources announced the immen-
ence of a major battle.
Infantry, tanks, cavalry and de-
structive aerial squadrons went into
action as Italy swiftly and boldly fol-
lowed up the outbreak of 'war.
Italian officers said they believed
the occupation of Aduwa would be
"only a matter of hours."
Italian aviators returned from the
front to report the Ethiopian columns
only 20 or 30 miles distant. ,
GENEVA, Oct. 5. -(A) - A League
of Nations report, absolving Ethiopia
from blame for war, went before the
League Council today.
With the galleries packed with spec-
tators and the European situation
tense, Baron Pompeo Aloisi, chief
delegate of Italy, immediately de-
clared that he wished to make full
reservations concerning the statement
submitted to the Council's "Commit-
tee of 13."
Present at the council session was
the Ethiopian delegate, Tecle Ha-
wariate, whose government earlier in
the afternoon had called on the
Council to act under the League Cove-
nant provision of military sanctions
against aggressor nations.
The Ethiopian plea arrived almost
simultaneously with the publication
of the Council Committee's report,
which definitely cleared Ethiopia of
any charges of aggression but did
not definitely specify Italy as the

Legend O Ancient Windmill A
Stor Of Romance And Tragedy

If ever, on your long Sunday walks
along the high bank of the Huron
River, you've stopped to look back,
and seen the spires of the churches
and the law club, and the hospital,
just visible among the trees and the
hills, and the feeling has struck you
that Ann Arbor is a village in the
German hills, then perhaps you will
be readier to give credence to this
legend of the old mill.
Fraternity pledges on their Hell
Week quests have found the old mill,
but not without difficulty, for it
stands decaying among the under-
brush out West Huron Street at Ar-
bana Drive.
So moving is the romantic legend

about the old mill, one finds himself
impelled to believe in it implicity.

Churches Plan
New ervIces
For Students
Historical Lecture Series,
Discussion Groups To Be
A new type of church service pre-
sented to students here in Ann Arbor
will be given today at the First Con-
gregational Church. The meeting at
10:30 a.m. will consist of a half hour
of worship, a sermon by the minister,
Rev. Allison Ray Heaps, and a lec-
ture by Prof. Preston W. Slosson of
the history department.
This plan of combining worship
and religious education was inaugur-
ated last year by the Congregational
Church and provedvery successful.
The subject of today's sermon is
"What Has Religion to do with Edu-
cation?" and the topic of Prof. Slos-'
son's lecture is "St. Louis and Alfred,
Christian Kings." Both addresses
are included in a series planned for
the entire semester.
Weaver To Speak
This evening students are invited1
to attend the gathering of thedCon-
gregational student fellowship group.
A light supper will be served and
music will be furnished by an orches-
tra under the direction of Thor .John-
son. Prof. Bennett Weaver of the
English department will speak at 6
p.m. on "Spending."
Catholic students have the oppor-
tunity of attending either of two
masses at St. Mary's Chapel, one at
8 a.m. and the other at 10:30 a.m.
Sermons at both masses will be de-
livered by Father Babcock.
"The Liberal Church in a Univer-
sity Community" will be the subject
under discussion at 11 a.m. today at
the Unitarian Church. The discus-
sion will be carried on by a panel jury
composed of Professors Roy W. Sel-
lars, Arthur Wood, Carl D. LaRue,
John F. Shepard, Mrs. George Brig-
ham and Ralph Neafus.
The object of the meeting, accord-
ing to the Rev. H. P. Marley, minister
of the church, is to familiarize mem-
bers and friends of the church with
the problems which confront an or-
ganization which seeks to uphold the
liberal tradition in an age of con-
flict. Following the discussion of the
subject by the panel, questions may
be asked from the floor.

So runs the legend:
More than 100 years have passed
since Herman, the son of Baron Sten-
bach, lived in Stuttgart, Germany.
the baron was an officer in the king's
service, possessing a great estate
which lay among the towering hills
which surround Stuttgart.
Herman was in love with Gabrielle,
the beautiful daughter of a French
banker of the town, whose estate lay
next to that of Baron Stenbach. The
two families, drawn together by the
love of Herman and Gabrielle, were
fast friends for many years, until the
entrance of the Germans into the
Napoleonic wars.
This led to an estrangement be-
tween the German baron and the
French banker, and through the first
bitter years of the war the breach
between the families grew wider.
Loyalty to his king demanded that
the baron withold his consent to the
marriage of his son with Gabrielle,
whereupon Herman refused to fight
against Napoleon and was disinherit-
ed and disowned by his father. Then
there came a summons for Herman
to appear before the general of the
army, and believing that some
trumped-up charge had been made
against him, Herman fled into hiding
in the friendly hills about Stuttgart.
High up on a hill overlooking the
city, on the estate of Gabrielle's fath-
er, there stood a windmill. It was

General Crowder Turns In
Five-Hlit Game As Tigers

In Fifth Series Tilt
5. - (T) - Alvin (General) Crowder,
pitched the Detroit Tigers to their
third straight victory today and with-
in one game of their long-sought goal,
the World Series championship.
The 34-year-old North Carolina
right-hander turned back the youth-
ful Chicago Cubs, and whipped them,
2 to 1, with a brilliantly executed five-.
hit performance.
The old war horse, in achieving his
first World Series triumph in three
starting attempts, not only gave a
masterful exhibition, marred only by
the home run ball he served to Gabby
Hartnett in the second inning, but
figured in the scoring of both De-
troit's runs. Crowder singled in the
third and came home with the tying
run on Jojo White's hit and Charley
Gehringer's double off Lindstrom's
glove. The General had the "breaks"
with him in the sixth when his roller
was missed by shortstop Billy Jurges
of the Cubs, thereby enabling little
"Flea" Clifton, substitute Tiger third
baseman, to scamper home with the
winning run. Clifton had taken two
bases on Augie Galan's muff of a
long fly ball and the collapse of the
home team's defense proved fatal.
Crowder Finishes
Thus fortified, the General swept
back the Cubs in their last four at-
tempts to break through the old fel-
low's crafty pitching defense. Billy
Herman doubled in the sixth, to start
the home half, but couldn't get be-
yond third base. Finally, in the
ninth, Frank Demaree and Phil Ca-
varetta hit safely, with one out. The
crowd was yelling wildly, Elden Auk-
er was warming up briskly in the
Tiger bull pen, and it looked as
though emergency measures might be
necessary. Manager Mickey Coch-
rane confined himself to a short con-
ference with the General, however,
and saw his confidence justified as
Stanley Hack grounded to Billy Ro-
gell and into a double play that end-
ed the last Cub hopes.
The American League champions
are now leading three games to one.
They can end this battle victoriously
tomorrow, if Tommy Bridges, slim
right-hander who stopped the Cubs
the second game, can beat Lon War-
neke, the Cubs' ace and shutout vic-
tor in the first game.
Largest Series Crowd
Cochrane said tonight that while
he planned to start Bridges he might
switch to Schbolboy Rowe, giant
right-hand workhorse. Even if the
Tigers fail to beat Warneke, they
will have two games on their home
ground in which to collect the fourth
and deciding game.

Wolverines Lose Opener,
25-6, As Spartan Team
Shows Form And Speed


Only Score Against Spartans

-By Daily Staff Photographer.
Cedric Sweet, Michigan fullback, is shown above just as he scored
Michigan's only touchdown against Michigan State yesterday. Sweet
has caught a pass from Bill Renner, thrown from placekick formation,
and fallen over the goal at the sideline.
Kipke Chews Grass, Bachman
Waves Hands, As Game Ends

Mr. Kipke reached down and
plucked a choice blade of grass, put
it in his mouth and began to chew
slowly. It was a low moment in the
Michigan spirit, which had soared so
high Friday night. State had made
a touchdown in the first two minutes
of play.
Then, about seven minutes later,
after a series of passes, a fake place
kick and pass gave Michigan a
touchdown.. The band blared forth..
The cheerleaders and more than 25,-
000 fans yelled themselves hoarse.
Team members were shouting with
glee. Mr. Kipke reached down for
another blade of grass.
With Mr. Bachman, the man who
taught the boys from East Lansing
how to play football fast and furious-
ly, it was much different. Unlike
the impassive Kipke, he yelled "Atta
boy!" and jumped up when Brand-
statter carried the ball over the Mich-
igan goal line. And when he saw
the score nearly tied, he clenched his
fist and cursed softly.
Kipke Clenches Fist
If water and grass were a healthy
diet, there is no doubt that Mr. Kipke
would be a very healthful person. For
every twenty or so blades of grass
he picked and chewed, he drank a
half pint of water. When the play
grew tense, he would get up from
his chair, take a few steps toward
the south of the field, and return. Oc-
casionally he would address a ques-
tion to no one in partciular, and take
up grass chewing again.
When Michigan failed by a half a
yard to make first down in the sec-
ond period, Mr. Kipke spit out his
s anccnndrlenched his fist. But' his

mained the same as it did a few
minutes before when Everhardus had
plunged through State's right tackle
for ten yards.
"Come on Stark," said Kipke to
Ritchie as the half neared an end.
He got up and walked around.
"That extra time out means a pen-
alty," someone told him.
"I don't care," the Michigan coach
threw over his shoulder. "What's five
yards with only a minute to go." He
handed Ritchie his slip (Kipke always
takes the slips from the manager and
hands them to the playe: himself),
slapped him on the back - and picked
a couple of blades of grass.
'Paging Sixty-Two'
To return to Mr. Bachman, who
after all figured rather importantly
in the afternoon's events, his only
habit comparable with grass chewing
was that he incessantly pulled at his
right garter. And as he pulled at his
garter he yelled at the field judge for
calling penalties against his team.
When along in the middle of the last
quarter, Siegel broke away for a gain,
Bachman grinned and said to a re-
porter: "That's showing 'em, isn't it."
Play number 62, an end run men-
euver, seemed to be Mr. Bachman's
favorite, and not infrequently would
he mutter: "Sixty-two, sixty-two.
Why the blinkety blank blank don't
they use sixty-two?"
And then when his team scored its
third touchdown, he laughed out loud,
and said, "Yep, they're playing a
great ball game."
The Michigan State mentor stood
up and waved his hands when the
whistle blew, ending the game 25 to 6,
in his favor. And across the field,
the man in the brown coat chewed,

Michigan Bank Fi

Declaring that 35 percent of the
combined capital and gross deposits
of the 163 Michigan banks which
failed during the depression were
frozen as far back as 1928, Dr. Rob-
ert G. Rodkey, professor of banking
and investments, designated the in-
competence of bank officials as the
"fundamental cause" of failures
treated in his monograph which com-
prises the current issue of the "Michi-

of the bond accounts of the unsound
institutions was composed of real

"under no circumstances meet the
fundamental tests of either sound-
ness or liquidity."
