EDITOR'S NOTE: Mr. Andros sets
forth in the following article The
Daily's stand on the training table for
football players. In his "Press Angle"
column Sunday morning, he charged
that Alex Loko, who recently left
school, and other gridders, had iade-
quate food during the football season.
(Daily Sports Editor)
The Daily has initiated a move to-
ward Western Conference approval
of a plan providing a training table
for the Varsity football squad to the
extent of one good meal a day dur-
ing the season.
This move has been made not as an
alibi for three consecutive unsuccess-
ful seasons.
It has been made because it is firm-
ly believed that its fulfillment would
be of benefit to the players, the ma-
jority of whom are working under
conditions that are detrimental to
their scholastic progress as well as
their performance on the gridiron.
Over 80 per cent of the members of
the Varsity squad are forced to workJ
for their board to stay in school. The
average case is something like this:
Forced To Hurry
Football practice isover at 5:30
p.m. The player hurries through a
shower and dressing and rushes to a
board job that will probably mean
standing on his feet for as long as anl
hour-just after a strenuous practice.
And the eating of what is the "big"
meal of the day takes place in the
same general rush. After this the
man goes to his room to study-under
pressure of a football practice physi-
cally and mentally strenuous and a
meal eaten under unfavorable con-
Under the plan of one good meal
a day-the evening meal after prac- I
tice, the players would be assured ofI
the type and amount of food neces-
sary to an athlete, and the obviously
detrimental "pressure" on the mant
would be relieved. He could relax be-
fore and during the meal. The bene-1
fits of properly prescribed food dot
not have to be mentioned.
Figures have been given out by1
Trainer Ray Roberts that prove that
the football squad gained more
weight than it lost during the pastt
season. But weight is not the only
prerequisite to good condition. t
Food Quality Important
Quality, variety and methods of
preparation are as essential in food
as quantity, according to Dr. George
May's statements given below.t
Weight can come only from quantity
of food. For the best general con-
dition an athlete needs the other
essentials as well.
Coach Harry Kipke, while declining
to take a stand either for or against
a training table, commented last
night that "one.good meal a day on
a training table would undoubtedly
be a help to many of the boys." 1
Fielding H. Yost, director of ath-
letics, was inclined to pass lightly
over the controversy, saying that the

training table situation had been'
settled several times in the Confer-
ence since the original abolishment
in 1905.
May Proposes
Table Serving
One 'Good' Meal
A training table which served at
least one "good" meal a day for foot-
ball players was the proposal offered
yesterday by Dr. George A. May, di-
rector of the Waterman Gymnasium,
to the question of giving the players
enough to eat.
Four important features of a good
meal were enumerated by Dr. May.
These are quantity, quality, variety
and proper preparation. The absence
of any one of these, he pointed out,
would render a meal worthless to the

Buenos Aires
Gives Ovation
For Roosevelt
Nation's Biggest Reception
Greets President Prior
To Conference
BUENOS AIRES, Nov. 30.-(W)-j
One million Argentines gave Presi-
dent Franklin D. Roosevelt the great-
est mass welcome in their nation's
history when he arrived today to open
conferences by which 21 American
republics hope to build a citadel of
permanent peace in the new world.
Argentine secret service men said
the wild ovations which lasted far
into the hot night exceeded even
those accorded England's King Ed-
ward VIII when, as Prince of Wales,
he visited Buenos Aires in 1931.
Spontaneous salvos of cheering and
"V ivas!" rolled about the presiden-
tial party for 15 minutes without in-
terruption tonight when he drove to
the Casa Rosada to pay a formal call
oi Argentine's President Augustin
Similar demonstrations earlier
roared from the throngs which lined
the route along which he rode in the
afternoon after landing from the
United States Cruiser Indianapolis.
The exuberant Argentines shouted
"Viva Democracy!" and "Viva Roose-
velt!" until the United States and
Argentine presidents appeared on a
balcony. The two smiled and waved
and shook hands in view of the crowd.!
Before his call on the ArgentineI
president, President Roosevelt con-
ferred with Secretary of State Hull
and Sumner Welles, assistant secre-
tary of state, on the general program
and objectives of the Inter-American
WASHINGTON, Nov. 30.-('P)-On
the eve of President Roosevelt's ad-
dress at Buenos Aires to the Inter-
American Conference for Promotion
of Peace and Trade, the State De-

ing of a reciprocal trade treaty with
the eighth of the 21 nations attend-
The newest signatory is Costa Rica,
whose agreement to extend reciprocal
trade benefits brings to 15 the num-
ber of countries with which such
treaties have been arranged.

Loyal Spain's
Delegates Talk
Here Saturday

ended its 28th annual meeting Satur-
lay in New York City, it was revealed
yesterday by members of thle Mich-
igan delegation.
gThe action is being taken as the
result of a talk delivered at the
conference by Prof. Robert P. Briggs
of the economics department, frater-
nity financial adviser, who told dele-
gates what the tax would cost fra-
ternities. Other Michigan represen-
tatives at the meeting were Dean Jo-
seph A. Bursley and George Cosper,
'37, president of the Interfraternity,
Move Was Unexpected
The new move was unexpected by
the conference, which discussed the
question in their routine business. As
a result of Professor Briggs' informa-
tion, the problem was turned over to
the executive committee of the Coun-
cil who will seek exemption from the
act on the grounds that fraternities
are non-profit, educational organiza-
Other subjects discussed at the con-
ference were rushing systems, espe-
cially deferred rushing, "dirty" rush-
ing and how to reduce the length of
the rushing period to a minimum and
still adequately contact all the
"Michigan fraternities seemed to
be so far in advance of the other
schools," Cosper said, "that we could
learn little from them that we did not
already know."
Many Introduced Here
Practically all of the innovations
suggested by other delegates, such as
interfraternity balls, interfraternity
sings, pledge banquets and registra-
tion of freshmen, have already been
introduced here, he said.
The delegates from the more than
100 universities and colleges which
sent representatives listened to the

ever, he said, and will commence
broadcasting the first of the year
twice a week for a tobacco company,
which he termed a "somewhat more
appropriate sponsor." Mr. Wooll-,

Further evidence that he is not yet
ready for the literary graveyard was

Overtaken While Hunting
Former-Gov. Green, 64 years old,
died of an illness which overtook him
while he was engaged in the sport
he loved best-and he loved many-
hunting. He was taken sick Nov. 20,
in a hunting camp, after shooting a
large buck, with the gall bladder
trouble that had pluaged him in
recent years, and Dr. Haldor Barnes,
his physician, said the exertion was
too much for his heart to withstand.

cans, life-long enemies and life-long
friends, they all told of their grief.
The open door to the Executive Of-
fices during his two terms as gov-
ernor often admitted the sound of
loud and bitter argument, but al-
ways the governor's opponent would
walk out smiling and would shake
hands and say "Goodbye, Fred." And
the governor's wide Theodore Roose-
veltian grin would follow him out.

As the alliance would be intended

United States might be urged at least
to demonstrate sympathetic if not ac-
tual adherence.
Carrying out France's announced
determination to build her defenses

Superior Naval Council recommended
increased naval construction over a
period of years, "in principle," but
made public no figures.

uties Dec. 4, after which Premier Leon

to Spain.
Premier Blum called a cabinet ses-
sion tonight to debate national de-
fense plans.

on its Spanish neutrality stand, in-
formed .sources said, and will resign

Germany Violator Of
Munitions Agreement
GENEVA, Nov. 30.-(P)-League of
Nations officials charged today Ger-
many was trading in arms and muni-
tions of war in open violation of the
Treaty of Versailles.
Germany sold munitions worth 10,-
340,000 Reichsmarks ($4,136,000) in
1935, the League reported, and
bought arms of war to the value of
215,000 Reichsmarks ($86,000).
Article 170 of the Treaty of Ver-
sailles that ended the World War
prohibited Germany from exporting
and importing arms as war material.
(Practically all of the major pro-
visions of the Treaty of Versailles, ex-
cept for the rearrangement of Euro-
pean boundaries, have been consid-
ered by Germany to be void.)
League officials, listing the total
known world trade in armaments as
$43,600,000, pointed to Germany's
report to the 1935 'edition of the
"statistical year book on the trade
in arms and ammunition" as evidence
to support their charge.
Heretofore, officials said, Germany
accompanied her arms trade figures
with a footnote describing them as
"arms for sporting purposes."
This year the footnote was omitted.

Desire 'T Get Away From It'
One Motive For Disappearing

Running away from school is an
escape that may be motivated by one
or several of a large number of fac-
tors, according to Dr. Theophile Ra-
phael, head of the Health Service
mental health department, for it is
a question almost as broad as dis-
content itself.
In a general way, he said, the basis
for running away is that the present
situation has seemed to become un-
satisfactory, unpleasant, in fact un-
bearable. A strong feeling of com-
pulsion to get away from it is the
result and this feeling is augmented
often by the tendency to view the
"qrrns a greener far away." he ex-;

often does and should help greatly,"
he advised.
Dr. Raphael pointed out that the
particular situation a student may
find himself in here in Ann Arbor
need not necessarily be the most con-
structive one, but if a change is ad-
visable is should not be impulsive,
headlong, explosive, which is what
running away usually is. Instead he
advised that it should be carefully
and factually worked out, with use
of counsel made as indicated.
It should be emphasized that prob-
lems may be thus worked out and
that in running away, the flight may
be from self which, of course, will
follow right along the journey," he
stated. He also explained that the
