The date for the second annual
Michigan Daily Goodfellow Drive was
set last night for Monday, Dec. 14.
The campaign will be officially
opened at 8 p.m. today in Rooms 321-
325 of the Union with the first meet-
ing of the Executive Committee, to be
headed by President Ruthven.
Members of campus honorary so-
cieties conducted a 10-hour street
sale of Goodfellow Dailies last year to
net almost $1,400, which was distrib-
uted among needy students through
the office of the dean of students, and
among needy townspeople and chil-
dren through the Family Welfare
Bureau.
Directed By Special Committee
The Goodfellow Edition was orig-
inally conceived to replace the num-
ber of individual parties which stu-
dent groups were giving for unfor-
tunate children at Christmas, but its
usefulness has been broadened to in-
clude needy students. This year the
campaign will be extended to include
the downtown Ann Arbor area.

be under the direction of a special
committee of the Men's Council,
headed by George Sprau, '37A, and
including Hubert Fones, '38E, and
James Walker, '37E.
Deans Alice C. J oyd and Joseph
A. Bursley will serve this year as last
as faculty advisers on the Executive
Committee. George W. Cosper, '37,
president of the Interfraternity Coun-
cil, will be secretary of the committee.
Other members of the committee
will be: Miller G. Sherwood, '37, pres-
ident of the Men's Council; Herbert
Wolfe. '37, president of the Michigan
Union; Charlotte Rueger, '37. pres-
ident of the Michigan League; Betty
Ann Beebe, '37, president of the Pan-
Hellenic Association; Elsie A. Pierce

To Hear Small
Subsidy ]Plan
Proposition To Be Given
To Annual Meeting Of
Conference Advisers
By IRVIN LISAGOR
A plan, proposing to give Big Ten
athletes a modest subsidy, will be
flung into the laps of Conference fac-
ulty advisers and athletic directors
at their annual meeting in Chicago
on Friday.
Conceived by a University of Wis-
consin professor, Robert L. Reynolds,
the plan is designed to do away with
the oft-whispered insinuations and
finger-pointing concerning subsidized
football players and bring the dis-
cussions fully into the open.
The gist of the Reynolds Plan is
contained in 'this brief 3-point pro-
gram :
1. A free course of studies and
sports would be provided for high
school graduates who possess athletic
ability and show some scholastic ap-
titude in a summer school session of
six weeks.
2. If their six-week grade, based
upon their showing in studies and
athletics, are worthy enough they
swould be awarded a scholarship of
$400 a year. These funds would be
supplied by alumni and friends of
the university.
3. In order to receive the scholar-
ship for four years, these students
have to maintain an academic aver-
age of 1.5 points per credit ( a C+F
average at Michigan) during their
freshman and sophomore years. It

Prime Minister. Calls On
King To Talk Situation
Over With Him
NEW YORK, Dec. 2.-(QP) -The
New York Times, in a London dis-
patch tonight, asserts that conflict
between King Edward and his cab-
inet has resulted in a crisis "involv-
ing the, possible abdication of the
king tomorrow." It also reports ru-
mors that Mrs. Wallis Warfield
Simpson would leave the country to-
morrow and that the King might
go with her.
Anxious subjects of King Ed-
ward VIII, pondering the fate of the
crown should the strong-willed
monarch abdicate over "The affaire
Simpson," last night focused their
attention on the heir presumptive,
the slim and studious Duke of York.
They saw in the second son of King
George and Queen Mary the anti-
thesis, in many respects, of the gay
and individualistic Edward.
King Edward, when Prince of
Wales, once declared that "Bertie,"
as he calls the Duke, would make a
better King than himself.
LONDON, Dec. 2.-(A-The world's
greatest empire reached a govern-
ment crisis tonight because of Brit-
ish King Edxlard's friendship for an
American - born divorcee - Wallis
Warfield Simpson.
For an hour today Prime Minister
Stanley Baldwin was closeted with
the monarch in what was reported to
have been a showdown on the King's
friendship with Mrs. Simpson and re-
ports that he hoped to marry her.
Without mentioning the former
Baltimore belle by name, the great
Times of London appealed editorially
to the monarch for "some authorita-
tive act or statement" to "end once
and for all" rumors of his intentions
to marry Mrs. Simpson.
Stern and silent, the Prime Min-
ister strode into the palace for a
straight-from-the-shoulder talk on
the crisis which has grown to such
proportions that some quarters as-
sertedaldwin told Edward he and
the cabinet would resign unless his
majesty cooled his association with
the former Baltimore belle.
Confers With Simon
He emerged at the end of the hour,
went directly to the House of Com-
mons and later to 10 Downing to
confer with Sir John Simon, British
Home Secretary.
As the government crisis height-
ened in intensity, it was learned from
private sources that Edward himself
is watching impending developments
with unruffled composure, that above'
everything else he will consider the
best interests of the British realm
and take no step likely to discredit
the heritage cf the throne or violate
the trust and loyalty of his people.
Edward still will insist, these ad-
vices said, upon his right as an in-
dividual to seek personal happiness
in his private life, but he is concerned
by riticism now directed against
him.
Hopes For Solution
The King hopes, with the sym-
pathy of his people, it was stated, to
work out a solution of his private
actions which will be satisfactory to
him and to the realm.

As to reports he had made ar-
rangements for marriage to Mrs.
Simpson, those close to him asserted
the monarch himself has branded the
reports untrue.
The news magazine Cavalcade', in
an article for publication tomorrow,
said Baldwin told Edward in a con-
ference a week ago that he had re-
ceived "representations" from Aus-
ialia, Canada, and South Mrica
on the King's friendship with Mrs.
Simpson.
"In this time of crisis when Britain
must be strong and united," the
Prime Minister was quoted as having
