Hitler Praised
At Meeting Of
New Deal Is Attacked By
Chrysler Vice-Chairman;
Calls France A 'Pig Pen'
Technical Training

Dow Declares Large Navy,
Air Force Are Essential
For National Defense
Modern industry's attitude and
ideals in education, research and na-
tional affairs formed the theme yes-
terday of th first day of the Uni-
versity of Michigan Industrial Con-
ference on Education and Research
as more than 100 representatives of
business concerns, and the University
convened in the Union.
In a program which commenced at
8 p.m. with registration of the dele-
gates, sessions on the training of men
for industry and the functions of
scientific research were held during
the morning and afternoon.
Politicians in general and the New
Deal in particular were denounced in
forceful language, and the need for
a re-dedication to the basic virtues
of "life, liberty and the pursuit of
happiness" was declaimed, by Fred
M. Zeder, vice-chairman of the
Board, Chrysler Corporation, at the
opening meeting.
Contrasts Industrial Progress
In the course of his talk Mr. Zeder
contrasted the progress of industry,
founded on sound principles of en-
gineering and constructive programs
of personnel training, to the "par-
asitical" growth of "chiselling poli-
ticians" and "wasteful government."
Mr. Zeder further contrasted the
methods of employing relief workers
in this country with those used in
Germany and Italy. "Hitler (Mr.
Zedr, in talking with the Nazi dic-
tator, came to "admire" him greatly)
is doing a great job, he's carrying on,
he's putting his house in order.
France is a pig pen compared to
Germany," Mr. Zeder stated.
The government projects institut-
ed by Mussolini in Italy are all en-'
gineer-planned projects, he con-
tinued. Italy's war with Ethiopia
was an engineer-planned war."
(Mr. Zeder has also talked with
Il Duce, in conversation with whom
President Roosevelt was character-
ized as a "second Mussolini," and
labor strikes were agreed to be
"crimes against the state.")
Asks End of Waste
In contrast to such "engineer-
planned" projects are the projects of
the New Deal, according to Mr. Zeder.
"Let's give the poor devils (relief
workers) real work, plan and super-
vise according to engineering prin-
ciples, restore self respect and quit
the.waste and the fumbling with re-
covery," he pleaded.
Mr. Zeder, proceeding to a descrip-
tion of the way in which industry has
met the demand for technically-
trained men, in cooperation with ed-
ucational institutions, discussed the
success of the undergraduate and
graduate training programs of the
Chrysler Corporation.
We have increased the morale of
our men 100 per centdthrough these
programs," he stated. They have
createdman attitude of respectsfor col-
lege men which heretofore has not
been present among factory workers.
They are training men of vision and
Such programs demonstrate the

dynamic character of industry, Mr.'
Zeder stated. "Politicians and people
generally are too much concerned
with the status quo, and we must
have a greater concern in dynamic

Britons Violating
Pact, Says Grandi
ROME, Oct. 10.-(Saturday)-(P)
-High Italian sources said today the
Italian Ambassador to London has
accused Britons as well as Russians
of aiding the Spanish government
against the Spanish Fascists, although
Great Britain and Russia both are
parties to the agreement for non-in-
tervention in Spain.
The ambassador, Dino Grandi, was
said to have made the accusation at
yesterday's closed session of the In-
ternational Neutrality Committee in
London, when he denied Russia's
charge that Italy-along with Ger-

"It'll be decided by the flip of a
coin," Coach Bo McMillin said late
last night as he returned from a last
minute rendezvous with Harry Kipke.
Settling down into an easy chair in
Ypsilanti's Huron Hotel, McMillin,
one of the true gentlemen of the
coaching profession, went on to elab-
"I've just been talking to Harry,"
he said. "Kip drove over from

Relief Comes
To Fraternities,
Houses Once Again Return
To Normalcy; Anticipate
650 To Pledge
For the first time in two weeks the
brothers in Ann Arbor's 41 social
fraternities last night sat down to a
dinner of relative repose, free from
the obligation of talking about
rushees' home town high schools and
relieved of the duty of passing out
their own cigarettes.
The' reason for this blissful change
was the beginning of the silence
period between fraternities and
rushees yesterday and the close of1
another fall period of rushing for
fraternities. It means a respite for
the rushees too, who will be living,I
until Monday night in what Prof.
Philip E. Bursley once called single-
blessedness. .
Arduous as it was, rushing this
year will probably approach a new
high in fruitfulness, according to the
Interfraternity Council. Of the 730
registered with the Council for rush-,
ing, John Mann, '37, secretary of
the Council, expects about 650 will

The rushing period as a whole is
not over until the end of the period
of silence at 12 noon Monday, the
Council warned, and all contact be-
tween rushees and fraternity men is
forbidden until then.
Letters informing rushees of the
fraternity they will pledge, were ad-
dressed three days ago and will be
delivered Monday, according to Mann.
Until then the brothers will try to
catch up on some of the studying they
neglected and put aside the' glad
hand and happy smile of rushing for

Police Rushed
Into Metz After
Italian Is Shot
Grave Crisis Seen Within
France As Communists
Defy 'Front' Cabinet
PARIS, Oct. 9.-(/P)--Police rein-
forcements were rushed into seeth-
ing Alsace-Lorraine tonight after the
shooting of an Italian Fascist at
Metz sharpened tension between
Communists and Rightists.

The Italian, Antonio Bertazzo, was
wounded by unidentified attackers in
a district already gravely anxious over
forthcoming Communist demonstra-
tions and promised counter-demon-
strations by Rightists.
The Italian consul at Metz identi-
fied the wounded man as a member
of the Fascist party associated with
the consulate in caring for local
The possibility of a crisis within the
"Popular Front" government of So-
cialist Premier Leon Blum added to
the anxiety gripping the historic Al-
sace-Lorraine region tonight.
The cabinet was reported deter-
mined to restrict the Communists to
10 meetings, but the Communist
party's press bureau announced to-
night that 52 meetings would be held
over the week-end in defiance of
Premier Blum's wishes to the con-

To boil it right down'

to the hard facts, Kip's got two chil-
dren and I've got four, and that's
what it means to us.
"I think Michigan's got the great-
er reserve strength, but I wouldn't
trade my squad for any other in the
Conference. Nobody could after
working and hoping with as swell a
bunch of fellows as I've got."
What about Vernon Huffman, I
asked Bo?
Calls Huffman Great
"Verne is a great boy, a great ath-
lete," MMillin said. "He's a hard
worker and he'll be in there tomorrow
with all he's got. But that break last
year. He's forgotten it. It was just
a tough one that could have hap-
pened to anyone. It's the same kind
of a break that will decide tomor-
row's game. You know last year,
Michigan intercepted three of our
passes after they had been touched
by our receivers. That's what I call
the breaks."
McMillin went on to explain how
he and Kip had it figured out. With
Michigan asleep in Plymouth and
the Hoosiers safely in bed upstairs,
the rival coaches got together on the
night before and held a three-man
bull session, the other member being
Charley Fox, McMillin's good natured
aide de camp.
"We figure we've both got a good
chance to win," Bo went on, "and we
both realize how important the out-
come is to us and to our teams. The
thing I can't understand is how any-
one can blame Kip. He's had two
national championship clubs and two
Conference winners to boot, and yet
when the barren season comes they
start the anvil chorus. I'll tell you
what's wrong with Michigan," Mc-
Millin continued, "they haven't had
the material.
Indiana Schedule Tougher
"Kip admitted after a little friend-
ly argument that our schedule, which
includes Michigan, Nebraska, and
Ohio State, is even tougher than his,
and the thing that we are both hoping
is that both Minnesota and Nebraska
take a lot out of each other tomor-
Asked about the five-man backfield
and what had happened to it Bo only
smiled and explained that it was
simply a newspaper term used to
identify Indiana's peculiar shift in-
to formation.

a dry field, but it is extremely un-
likely that either's wish will be grat-
"Put yourself in our shoes," the
Indianan remarked." Two good
friends, Kip and myself. Job and

DETROIT, Oct. 9.-(JP)-Paul San-

A pep meeting was conducted and
a birthday celebrated last night in s

The dramatization of the writing I
of Michigan's famous marching songY
by its co-authors, Prof. Earl V.P
Moore, director of the School of Mu-
sic and J. Fred Lawton, continuallyt
provoked the audience to laughter as
historical fact and comedy were com-z

Fielding H. Yost, to whom "Var-

Regent Murfin raised the friendships1
and contacts of college life on as

Music from the band consisted of
an arrangement of "Varsity" in the
1911 manner and as it is played today,
and a march.
The men's Varsity Glee Club,

sang several songs that he hadwrit-

Kipke Undecided On Lineup
At a late hour yesterday Kipke was
till not decided on his starting line-
up. Valpey will definitely be at right
nd with Capt. Matt Patanelli at the
)pposite flank at the start of the
game. Fred Janke, one sophomore
who turned in a good performance
ast week, will be at left tackle but at
he other Kipke is faced with one of
his major problems.
He will start either Earl Luby,
Forrest Jordan or Jim Lincoln at that
post instead of Mel Kramer who held
he job against State. George Mar-
zonie will be one of the guards and
either Jack Brennan or Jesse Garber
the other. Joe Rinaldi will definitely
get the nod at center. ..
In the backfield Kipke doesn't know
whether to start Lou Levine, sopho-
more who started against State, or
Bill Barclay, letterman, at quarter-
back. Barclay, however, is expected
to get the call due to his experience
as signal caller. The rest of the back-
field will be the same as in the opener

In a very light vote yesterday Ann
Arbor voters approved the $135,000
bond issue for a new school on the
north side and rejected the proposi-
tion for increasing the tax limitation
of the school district.
The proposal for the issue of $135,-
000 worth of negotiable bonds to
build and equip a new elementary
school in the fifth ward passed by
a vote of 366 to 291. The bonds will
be retired within five years.
The proposition for increasing the
tax limitation beyond the limit im-
posed on local taxing units by the
state constitution failed to pass be-
cause it did not receive the necessary

two-thirds vote. The voting .on this
question was 341 yes and 320 no.
Only taxpayers voted on the bond
issue, but parents of children ywho
are listed in the school census were
permitted to vote on the tax limita-

p.m. Monday, Oct. 19, in the Masonic
Temple to deliver a campaign speech.
Thomas, the leading Socialist of
the country, is being brought to Ann
Arbor under the sponsorship of a
group of local citizens. He will speak
on the issues of the day.
This will be Thomas' fourth ap-
pearance in Ann Arbor, the most re-
cent being last February when he de-
livered three addresses.
Born in Marion, O., and descended
of a long line of Welsh ministers,
Thomas studied for the ministry af-
ter graduating from Princeton Uni-l
versity as a member of Phi Beta
Kappa. In 1917 he joined the So-
cialist party and in a short time be-
came one of its leaders. He has run
for many offices under the Socialist
banner, including mayor of New
York and governor of New York.

ST. PAUL, Oct. 9.-(P)-President
Roosevelt spoke out tonight for the
administration's reciprocal tariff pro-
gram, contending it had brought ben-
efits of increased trade to industry
and agriculture and "growing con-
sumption and better farm prices
prove it."
He spoke, too, of this and other
policies under his regime as influ-
ences toward "economic cooperation
which leads to international peace."
Into his address the President in-
jected his first public reference to the
new Tri-Power monetary under-
standing, mentioned "frenzied fi-
nance" between 1920 and 1930, and
talked of peace as a force for mak-
ing money.
"A prosperous world," he said, "has
no permanent room in it for dicta-
torship or for war."
Mr. Roosevelt spoke from Minne-
sota's state capitol, just across the
Mississippi River from Minneapolis,

A report of the college backgrounds
of more than 5,000 employees of the
American Telegraph and Telephone
Company, correlated with their sal-
aries in the corporation, was given by
J. T. Shaefer, a personnel executive
of the Michigan Bell Telephone Com-

Those who had participated in mu-

lower than average salaries. College
debaters were above average, as were
those who had worked on college pub-
lications. Men who had worked in
various managerial capacities on
campus, such as publications or ath-
letic managers, showed the best rec-
ord of all.
