Spain-tonight instructed the Ma-
drid embassy 4and Barcelona consu-
late to give serious consideration to
the desirability of closing those estab-

Including the diplomatic and con-

about 200 of which are in Madrid
Orders went out to Consul General
Mahlon F. Perkins at Barcelona to
close his office and call upon an
American naval vessel to take Amer-
icans from there if changes in local
conditions became unsafe.
Perkins earlier had informed the
department he had warned all Amer-
icans in his district that the con-
sulate 'was likely to be closed at any
time without prior notice, adding that
those nationals who remained in the
Catalonian capital "during the pres-
ent disturbed conditions, do so on
their own responsibility."
So concerned were. officials here;
over the dangers confronting nation-
als in the two cities that R. Walton

LaFollette Quiz May Be
TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 21.-()-The
American Federation of Labor con-
vention's legislative program asserted
tonight that "millions of dollars"
would be available this winter to a
lobby seeking to kill the Senate in-
vestigation of strike-breaking and la-
bor espionage.
The committee urged the conven-
tion, in its report, to demand an
ample appropriation to continue the
inquiry directed by Senator LaFol-
lette (Prog., Wis.).
Lobbyists Mobilized
"All the lobbies of 'the great anti-
union financial forces and all their
secret pressures are being mobilized
to prevent the Senate's granting an
appropriation to carry on the inves-
tigation," 'the report said.
"The LaFollette committee has
dragged into the light the under-
world that serves the biggest busi-
nesses-the spies and thugs whose
profession is wrecking unions, or even
murdering workers.
"Espionage and thuggery are shown
to be businesses organized on a na-
tion-wide scale, to which great cor-
porations pay tens of millions an-
nually. Strike-breaking munitions,
gas grenades, and machine guns are
proved to be stocked by plants in
every line of industry.
"The nub of the matter is that
the Senate must grant the LaFollette
committee adequate financing for

Lewis' Men Organize
While the convention was in re-

floor Monday.
These rebel sympathizers admitted
they had little chance of blocking any
action the old guard wished to take,
but they were determined to get their
views before the convention.

Dr. Henderson,
Extension Head,
To Retire Feb. 1
Ends 14 Years Of Service
At Age Of 70; Selected
Director In 1918
Dr. William D. Henderson, who, in
his 14 years as director of the Uni-;
versity Extension Division, brought
the facilities of the University to half;
a million persons in the state, an-
nounced his retirement yesterday.I
Dr. Henderson's retirement will be-
come effective in February although
he will be 70 years old on Nov. 27. He
came to the University in 1900 as a
student and has been connected with,
the extension division since its or-
ganization in 1911. Seven years
later he was appointed to the direc-
torship of the division.
It was during the administration!
of the late President Hutchins that
Dr. Henderson first came into contact
with the division. At that time he
was teaching physics and had been!
'requested by President Hutchins to
lecture to a group in a mining town
in the Upper Peninsula. Later, in
1913, a petition of 1700 Detroit resi-
dents was answered with the first
Extension Division credit and non-!
credit classes.
From those first 'requests the Ex-
tension Division has grown into an1
organization which contacts 500,000
people in the State with its work. The
division operates through 15 different
In addition to the extension lec-
tures and courses which constitute
the bulk of the division's activities
there is the Michigan High School
Forensic Association in which there
were 355 schools participating in
Correspondence courses for the
CCC and WPA, having the aid of the
Extension Division, reach more than
900 students in the State in 29 city
centers and 40 CCC camps.
Health education is conducted by
the Joint Committee on Public
Health Education. Under the guid-
ance of the Extension Division series
of lectures on problems of health
and communicable diseases are con-
ducted by physicians and public
health workers.
The recent Parent Education Insti-
tute held here was part of the plan
for adult education which was con-
ceived by Dr. Charles A. Fisher, as-
sistant director of the division sev-
eral years ago. People come to the
campus from all parts of the state
for intensive study of certain sub-
jects. Other institutes are the In-
stitute for Law Enforcement, Adult
Education and Institute for Wom-
en's Clubs.

Her Readiness To Act

BERLIN, Nov. 21.-(P)-Germany
acknowledged today her readiness tof
act with Japan, partner in a common
antagonism to bolshevism, "in givent
situations," but continued to disclaim
knowledge of any pact between the
two nations aimed against Russia.
Japan and Germany, a high gov-
ernment spokesman said, "have much
in common in their authoritarian
conception of government" but there
is no "hard and fast alliance between
the two."
"It is quite conceivable Germany
and Japan-opposed as both are to
Bolshevism-may in given situations
decide to proceed jointly," he added.
"It is also possible, if either should
become involved in a war with Soviet
Russia, the other would exercise at'
least a benevolent neutrality."

Report Success
In Dormitories
Fraternities At Texas AreF
Not Affected; Oregons
Maintains Unit Plan ,
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fifthj
in a series of articles based on a survey
conducted by The Daily among univer-
sities and colleges throughout the
United States on the question of men's
dormitories. The last in this series, to
appear Tuesday. will be a general, brief
summary of the information received
from 50 institutions.
Both the University of Texas at
Austin, Texas, and the University of
Oregon have stressed the success of
their dormitories, financially and so-
cially, in letters to The Daily.
The dean of students at the Uni-
versity of Texas informed The Daily
that the effect of dormitories upon
fraternities has been negligible inas-
much as the new dormitories from
year to year have been able to accom-
modate less than the average increasee
in the student body. raternities on
this campus may also be consideredj
in the same light in view of the con-t
tinual rise in enrollment here.
Texas has two new dormitoriest
which cost approximately $200,0003
each. The third dormitory on theR
campus cost the university $10,000l
but this merely included the cost of
renovating a building donated by the
state for dormitory purposes.
The cost of the two new dormi-
tories is on the average $120 per year
for each student, but the average
cost in the older dormitory is $50 per
The University of Oregon has pro-
vided university dormitory facilities
for 20 per cent of its men's student
body. Prior to the depression the
university constructed a men's dor-
mitory to accommodate about 300
students. The construction of the
dormitories was on the unit plan;
each unit housing approximately 50
men; each unit having its own dormi-
tory separate from the others; each
unit having a large living room sim-
ilar to the fraternity houses and hav-
ing its own dining room.
The units developed into social
groups soon after the construction
of the dormitories so that a consti-
;ution and by-laws were framed and
officers were elected. Through these
officers each of the units transacts its
own business and is represented by
them in inter-organization meetings
on the campus. To maintain a sort
I of continuity and help the students
in the units, the university selects
a senior or a graduate student to act
as sponsor, who are given a great
deal of leeway in their administra-
tion. The compensation given the
sponsors for their work in the unit
1 is room and board.

leven unleashed its fury before 56,-

ompletely, 21 to 0.

This victory was the third scored
by Ohio over Michigan in the last
three years, and by it the Buckeyes
became the only team in history
twice to beat the Wolverines three
successive times. Ohio's first string
of three came in 1919, 1920 and 1921.
This game was the final 1936 ap-
pearance for both elevens and en-
abled Ohio to close the year with five
wins and three losses, while for the
second time in the last three years
Michigan won but one game out of
Booth Kicks Goal
Wayslik, Rabb and Cumiskey
scored the touchdowns for Ohio this
afternoon while Booth added three
points by a 13-yard field goal. The
Buckeyes first tally came early in the
second quarter when Dye threw a
beautiful pass to Cumiskey who was
standing on the Wolverine goal line,
having only to step into the end zone
to start the day's drive to victory.
In the first quarter the-Michigan
aggregation fought as it did against
Northwestern a week ago. The Buck-
eyes could not penetrate the Wolver-
ine defense and with Stark Ritchie
leading the offense in great fashion
Michigan supporters had hopes of
seeing an up-set.
Michigan Starts Flashy
Shortly after the game opened,
Michigan took possession of the ball
on Ohio's 47-yard line after a punt.
A pass from Ritchie to Barclay
gained 22 yards and the same play
a moment later carried Michigan to
the eight-yard line. Ritchie and
Sweet each picked up two yards, but
there the Buckeyes began and stop-
ped the Wolverine charges cold to
take the ball on the three-yard line.
The Wolverines threatened only
once after this. In the second quar-
ter Bill Barclay recovered an Ohio
fumble on the Buckeye 19-yard line
and a scoring opportunity loomed for
the Wolverines. On four plays, how-
ever, Michigan could gain but three
yards, and from then on it was Ohio's
ball game.
The second quarter opened with
Sweet kicking to the Ohio State 24
where Dye was stopped in his tracks.
Rabb cut through the middle of the
line' fox 11 yards, and a play later a
pass from Dye to Booth gained to
the Buckeye 49.
Pat Blocks Punt
Dye then passed to Wedebrook for
another 12 yards, and after two line
plays came the touchdown pass,
which sent the stands into an up-
roar. Booth's try for the extra point
was blocked by Capt. Matt Patanelli.

The fans were treated to a great
punting exhibition later in the sec-
ond quarter when, with Ohio holding
the ball on their own 22, Wedebrook
got offI a long kick that went out of
bounds on the Michigan 14-yard line.
Sweet then got away his best kick of
the year, the ball going over the safe-
ty man's head and rolling out on the
Buckeye 14, to give Michigan a gain
of nine yards in this stellar exchange.
Ohio scored early in the second
half after a drive that started on
