In cooperation with the project,
the League and the Union have both
agreed to forgo their activities on
that night. The committee on Men's
Dormitories feels that, with the
League and the Union ballrooms both
closed and with the active support
of members of the many campus or-
ganizations backing the movement,
the dance is sure to be a success.
The Intramural building was ob-
tained for the dance through Director
of Atheltics Fielding H. Yost, Bristol
said yesterday. It will be the first
time in many years that a student
dance other than the J-Hop has been
held in the spacious gymnasium.

According to Bristol, this initial
project of the Committee on Men's
Dormitories is expected to raise a
considerable amount for the dormi-
tory fund, in order that the project
can go on with a definite sum upon
which to build. Tickets for the dance
are expected to go on sale early this
week and can be obtained by mem-
bers of the organizations which are
supporting the project.

To Dismiss 10
Murf in Admits He Will Not
Regents Stone And Cram
Non - Committal; Beal,
Crowley Back Freedom
Regent James O. Murfin, Detroit
attorney, last night reaffirmed his
statement that "Communists should
be dismissed" from the University
faculty, but admitted that he had no
intention of instigating a "congres-
sional investigation" to discover the
10 faculty members who voted for
Earl Browder, Communist candidate
for president, in The Daily's poll.
Contacted in Detroit by telephone,
Regent Murfin said, "If I learn any-
body on the taxpayers' payroll in
Ann Arbor is voting communistic, I
will work for his dismissal." He said
he would discuss the poll with Presi-
dent Ruthven this week.
Regent David H. Crowley, attor-
ney-general of Michigan who was
reached in Detroit, told The Daily
"The only thing I am concerned with
is that these 10 professors don't try
to teach the students their beliefs.
They are within their rights to be-
lieve whatever they wish."
Regent Junius E. Beal, Ann Arbor,
said he believed in a "broad freedom
of speech." He referred to Hyde Park
in London, "where all the "isms" get
together and thrash it out," as in-
dicative of his attitude toward the
faculty poll. "I am surprised there'
weren't more Browder votes," he said.
One member of the Board of Re-
gents, Ralph Stone, Detroit banker,
refused to comment either on the poll
or on the probability of action by the
Regents. President Ruthven likewise
refused to comment other than say
he had not talked with Regent Mur-
fin about the matter.
The results of the faculty poll were
Landon, 276; Foosevelt, 271; Thom-
as, 33; Browder, 10; and Lemke, 1.
Mrs. Esther M. Cram of 'Flint, the
woman member of the Board of Re-
gents, maintained that while "we
have a perfect right to demand high
standards of conduct, high standards
of intellect and high generosity to-
wards others in our faculty," if the
faculty comes up to those standards!
no more can be asked. "We have a
pretty fine faculty now," she af-
firmed, refusing to comment on the
Browder vote in the poll.
The Daily refused to give out in-
formation regarding the poll to a re-
porter of the Detroit Times.

PERPIGNAN, France, Oct. 31.-()
-The Spanish insurgent cruiser Ca-
narias, reappearing off the Bay of
Rosas after an earlier battle with
coastal batteries, was reported late
today to have sunk a government
gunboat with a single shell.
Spanish authorities said the gun-
boat was destroyed after it had
opened fire on the cruiser for refusing
to give its identity.
An unconfirmed report said the
Canarias was convoying freighters
loaded with Moors, and planned to
land them on the government coast.
Earlier, Catalan coastal batteries
had driven the warship away after
the cruiser had killed several fisher-

shelling the coastline of the Bay.

At times during the day, the Ca-
narias was cruising only a few miles
off the French coast. The French
government, however, had sent no

Strong Puts Illini Ahead
3 To 0 By Place-Kick
In Second Quarter
From Blocked Punt
Sweet Scores Only Goal
For Michigan After Long
Run By Smithers
By GEORGE J. ANDROS
A fighting young Michigan football
eleven that outgained its opponent
by 170 yards was halted on its come-
back trail yesterday afternoon in the
Stadium, by Illinois before a Home-
coming crowd of 35,000, 9 to 6.
The Wolverines were set back on
their heels in the first half by a light-
er but swift-moving Illini defense, and
when they came back in the last
quarter they could score only once,
having one more touchdown called
back when a successful lateral pass
was ruled a forward.
Coach Harry Kipke's team gained
237 yards from scrimmage, 138 of
them on eight completed forward
passes, while the Indians were held

feat of Minnesota, with special

to a total gain for the afternoon of
66 yards. The Varsity could not cash
in on scoring opportunities, however,
while Illinois scored once as the re-
sult of a blocked punt and took ad-
vantage ofra fumble deep in Michi-
gan territory to move into position
for a field goal. Michigan backs made
five fumbles in the course of the con-
When Cedric Sweet fumbled on his
own 11-yard line on the last play of
the first quarter, Bob Castelo, Illinois
end, recovered. After three plunges
into the Michigan line had moved the
ball to the four, Dave Strong dropped
back to the 15 and place-kicked a
field goal from a bad angle to put the
Illini ahead, 3 to 0.
Illinois Scores Again
With eight minutes to go in the
second period, Coach Bob Zuppke's
men scored again. Sweet's punt from
the Michigan 20 was blocked by end
Ken Nelson, the ball bounding into
the end zone, where it was recovered
for a touchdown by Clifford Kuhn,
scrappy Indian guard. This complet-
ed the Illinois scoring.
Don Siegel, star sophomore tackle
on the Michigan line, blocked one of
Strong's punts with a minute to go
in the third quarter, guard Fred
Ziem recovering for Michigan on the
Illinois 31-yard line. Smithers found
a huge hole over his own left guard
to carry the ball to the ninse as the
third period ended.
Sweet drove over right guard to the
two, put the ball on the two-foot line
on a plunge over center on the second
down, then moved to within half a
foot of the goal on the next play over
the same spot. On the last down the
big Wolverine fullback pounded
througha hole at center to score
Touchdown Called Back
Earlier in the third period the
Michigan team scored a touchdown
that was called back by the officials.
Smithers broke through guard at Il-
linois'48-yard line and ran to the
35 before he was downed. Here the
Varsity was penalized for offside play
and used the next two downs getting
back to scratch.
On the third play Smithers com-
pleted a forward to quarterback Bill
Barclay on the 25, and the Michigan
pilot tossed the ball to Ritchie, who
crossed the goal line standing up.
Referee Lyle Clarno maintained that
Barclay's pass to Ritchie was a for-
ward rather than a lateral and ruled
the whole play incomplete.
Smithers tried for a goal from
placement with the pall on the 34
when the third period was five min-
utes old, but his attempt fell short.
A 16-yard gain on a pass from Smith-
ers to Smick and then a running play
with a lateral to the former from
Ritchie had brought the ball deep in-
to Illinois territory.
The Wolverines failed to finish out
successfully their only two scoring
