British Crowd

Keeps Silecee
Choice Between Marriage
And Abdication Offered
By Prime Minister
Baldwin Expected
To Report Decision
Mrs. Simpson Takes Trip
To France On King's
Promise To Retain Rule
LONDON, Dec. 5.-(Saturday)-
!)--Surging crowds cheered King
Edward's name through the ancient
streets of London early today while
their imonarch struggled against his
Prime Minister's public ultimatum to
choose between Britain's throne and
Wallis Warfield Simpson.
Whether or not the youthful and
once-gay sovereign had reached a
decision, or whether he still was de-
termined to keep both his scepter
and his right to marry whom he
wished, no one save himself knew.
Alone save for servants in secluded!
Fort Belvedere, the sorely-beset king
through the night sought an answer
that would satisfy both the dictates
of his heart and of his duty as ruler
of the far-flung British Empire.
Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin,
who yesterday in unmistakable lan-
guage delivered the challenge for
those forces opposing a marriage be-
tween the King and the American-
born divorcee, was expected to give
the anxious British public some fur-
ther word today.
But there were no definite assur-
ances of what means he would em-
ploy, or even if he would say anything
further on the subject.
While Edward sought an answer
for the dilemma, the woman whose
friendship caused -the Empire crisis
spent the night in soutern France
en route toasecret h rieasay.
Mrs. Simpson, who friends said
consented to leave England only at
Edward's assurance he would not ab-
dicate the throne of his forefathers,
registered under the name Harrison
in Blois early today.
Hotel clerks said she and her party,
including a secretary and a body-
guard, would leave at dawn-for the
Riviera villa of her and the King's
friends, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Rogers
of New York, many believed.
The fact that Baldwin called a
cabinet session for Saturday and that
he summoned Viscount Craigavon,
Premier of Northern Ireland, from
Belfast to London, indicate the King
had not determined on what he must

Bureau Backs Movement
For Improved Condition
Of Underprivileged
Ann Arbor's Family Welfare Bu-
reau, which The Daily is aiding by its
Goodfellow Edition to be issued Mon-
day, Dec. 14, was greatly helped in
its work of rehabilitating maladjust-
ed families by means of last year's is-
In many instances, Mrs. Gordon W.
Brevoort, executive secretary of the
bureau, said yesterday, the funds de-
rived from last year's campus sale
were utilized in bringing aid to fam-
ilies who would not have accepted
any help from charity sources.
Bureau Work Outlined
"The purpose of the Family Wel-
fare Bureau is to rehabilitate malad-
justed families who have reached
their condition through various
means," Mrs. Brevoort said., "Fur-
ther, thenbureau has as its purpose
the sponsoring of any new move-
ments in the community which may
better the conditions of the under-
privileged and the indigent."
It is very possible, Mrs. Brevoort
continued, in these days of low in-
comes for a family to become par-
tially dependent. In such cases, the
bureau's aid is often asked and it
then helps the family budget its low
income. A representative from the
bureau visits regularly, sees the chil-
dren in school, talks to the teachers
about their progress, helps them if
necessary, makes arrangements for
these children to become members of
already active groups either in the
Boy Scouts or the Y.W.C.A. or'
Y.M.C.A. I
Fund Proves Benefit
One of the cases in which the,
funds raised by last season's Good-
fellow Daily were used to good ad-
vantage, according to Mrs. Brevoort,'
resulted in the adjusting of a 14-year
old girl who had been growing more
and more misfit because of illness and
poverty in her home.
The Family Welfare Bureau had
studied the case and was of the opin-
ion that if the girl's attitude could
be buoyed up, a betterment might re-
sult. A plaid coat, the first piece of
new clothing she had possessed for
years, was given her as a Christmas
present. The new outer garment had

December dusk, the University's new-
st monument, its long silence brok-
n, had yesterday been formally dedi-
ated to coming generations of Mich-
gan students.
Participating in an impressive cere-
mony, modelled closely after- an an-
ient English custom of dedication of
hurch bells, were President Ruthven,
Charles Baird, '95, donor of the caril-
on, and Frank Godfrey, engineer for
he English firm which cast the bells.
A fanfare played by a brass en-
emble of the Michigan Band sta-
ioned in the bell chamber 10 stories
above the campus opened the dedica-
ion at 4:15 p.m. After the Uni-
versity Glee Club had sung "Laudes

ation was made in Hill Auditorium.

"From the time I entered this Uni-
versity 46 years ago I have loved it.

the University of Michigan for what
she has given me.
"All the friends of Dr. Burton who
knew and loved him will rejoice in
this realization of a dream of his,
frustrated by an untimely death."
President Ruthven, in accepting
the bells in behalf of the University,
"The Charles Baird Carillon is to
be considered an important educa-
tional facility of the University of
Michigan for it will further the com-
prehensive objective of our schools-
the production of cultured men and
women. Mr. Baird, you have made
for yourself an enduring place in the
University of Michigan family. I ac-
cept these bells for the Board of Re-
gents. Everytime these lovely tones
sound over campus, city and country-
side some soul will be cheered, en-
couraged and uplifted."
Blakeman Offers Prayer
A dedicatory prayer was offered by
Dr. E. W. Blakeman, counselor of
religion, followed by seven sonorous
bongs from the Bourdon Bell; and
then the Glee Club and the audience
joined in singing the "Yellow and
Wilmot Pratt, carillonneur, start-

Percival Price, Dominion carillon-
neur for 'the Peace Tower in Ottawa,
was among several visiting carillon-
neurs and musical directors. He will
remain in Ann Arbor today to play
several selections at noon, according
to Prof. Earl V. Moore, director of
the School of Music.
,Approximately 4,000 people at-
tended the ceremonies and recital.
As Wilmot Pratt's final notes of
Denyn's "Preludium for Carillon"
trailed into a bleak gunmetal sky, a
carillon was dedicated which will
sing out on many another December
day and many a balmy spring day
also, as President Ruthven says, "To
cheer, encourage and uplift."
Mr. Baird was guest last night at
a dinner given by Professor Moore

at which various members of the
University were present, including
Mr. Pratt and Mr. Price.

the basis of these results, with a fi-

The plan was presented at a joint

Retirement Will Not Obstruct
Hender~son's Plans For Work

Dr. William D. Henderson, whose
retirement from the University Ex-
tension Division becomes effective at
the close of this semester, said yes-
terday, "I have enough work to keep
me busy for three years."
Dr. Henderson will have concluded
32 years as a member of the faculty
of the University when he retires. He
will automatically assume the title of
Professor and Director Emeritus of
the extension division.
"I shall devote my time to writ-
ing and lecturing. And after that?
Well," he said, "perhaps I'll go fish-

"There are requests for me to lec-

"Gwinn, at that time," Dr. Hen-
derson explained, "was a newly or-
ganized mining community on the
upper peninsula. The company
wanted to build a model town. With
this idea in mind it was natural for
them to call upon the University for
expert advice and counsel."
Since that time the extension divi-
