Plan Drafted
To Take Place
Of Late NRA
Would Embody The Aims
Of Old Act; Prevent Any
Unfair Competition
Need For Executive
Body Is Indicated
WASHINGTON, Dec. 11.-(P) -
Enactment of legislation to embody
the aims of the outlawed NRA was
urged today by George L. Berry's In-
dustrial Progress Council.
The purpose of the legislation, the
council said, should be to prohibit
any unfair competition in business,
including the employment of child
labor and the "maintenance of in-
just or unreasonable hour standards."
A new administrative body should
be constituted, the council decided,
with power to prosecute violations of
the proposed act.
"Either this administrative agency
or alother should be authorized to
investigac, study, consider and ap-
prove any agreements voluntarily
submitted to it by management and
labor in any industry or trade deal-
ing with minimum, wages and maxi-
mum hours and fair trade practices,"
the council said.
Earlier today, the council decided
as a general policy that "private in-
dustry cannot safely be permitted to
administer business and industry en-
tirely free from governmental inter-
The council turned over to a com-
mittee of business men and labor
leaders the task of drafting legisla-
tion designed to prevent furture de-
pressions and to speed current indus-
trial gains.
Wildlife Group
To End Session
With Field Trip
Madison, Wis. Named Site
For Next Year's Session
Of States Conference
With Madison, Wis., selected as the
location for next year's meeting, the
Central States Wildlife Conference
prepared today to wind up their 1936
session with field excursions to Uni-
versity properties near Ann Arbor.
Aldo Leopold, professor of game
management at the University of
Wisconsin, was named chairman of
arrangements for the Madison con-
ference with the meeting tentatively
set for the first week in November.
Lively discussions of the difficul-
ties in wildlife inventory character-
ized the morning assembly yesterday
with P. S. Lovejoy of the Michigan
department of conservation deliver-
ing the keynote speech on philo-
sophical problems of this procedure.,
Declaring "After all, inventory is the
basis of any kind of game manage-
ment," Mr. Lovejoy presented a
speech that was hailed by Dr. Carl
L. Hubbs, director of University Mu-
seums, and other delegates as being
the highpoint of the complete confer-
Declaring that inventories are
naturally restricted by the funds and
personnel available, Prof. L. R.
Schoenmann of the forestry school
said that well defined limits adjust

themselves with the problem. Even-
tual solution of the problems con-
cerning wildlife was suggested by
Professor Schoenmann to depend on
the success of human beings in learn-
ing to think like the game species.
An encouraging note, to the wild-
lifers was sounded when Basil Wales
of the Milwaukee office of the forest
service pointed out that in managing
the national forests for multiple use
in the north central region, the pro-
duction of trees and wildlife was on
a 50-50 basis. He declared that the
forest service was ready to go as far.
as possible in promoting wildlife as a
crop consistent with expert advice
from wildlife plople.

DUBLIN, Irish Free State, Dec. 11.

governor-general, King's represenlta-
Thus, the Free State made itself
in effect independent of Britain in
the conduct of internal affairs al-
though President Eamon de Valera
made clear that there would be no
break from the empire.
De Valera plans to present to the
Dail tomorrow legislation ratifying
the accession of King George VI, but
without that legislation tonight Ed-
ward still was technically king.
Henceforth, under the bill to bel
presented tomorrow, the British
king's name will be used only in the

Will Not Take Advantage
Governor General Donal-Buckley
was expected quickly to sign into law
his own official "death warrant," en-
acted by the Dail tonight, passing to
de Valera the duties he had per-
formed in the name of the king.
Bluntly announcing "the govern-
ment policy wants ultimately-to see
all of Ireland republic," de Valera as-
serted, he would not take advantage
of Edward's abdication to declare it
"I am not trying to have a slap
at Britain," he said. "I do not want
to injure Britain. This bill is our
own affair and Britain has no right
to interfere in our private affairs."
The measure was passed finally, 80
to 56, after an earlier test vote over-
rode labor opposition.
The test vote, won by the govern-
ment 71 to 53, was on a government

Future Kings
To Be Careful
In Marriages
Any king who wants to rule in the
future will be careful of his marriage
arrangements, Prof. Arthur L. Cross
of the history department declared
yesterday in an interview on the ab-
dication of Edward, which he termed
as the first voluntary abdication in
the history of England and involves
further steps in the continuous con-
stitutional development of England.
It is very unfortunate, Professor
Cross remarked, that a crisis such as'
this has arisen at the moment when
the whole of Europe is in the midst of
a feverish predicament, when Eng-
land should devote all her energies to
stabilize conditions on the continent.
Since the Norman conquest, Profes-
sor Cross said, there have been three
abdications serving as precedent for
Edward VIII's action, but in each
case the abdications were forced. The
first, he stated, came in 1327 when
Edward II was forced to abdicate be-
cause of great unpopularity. In 1399
Richard II was forced to relinquish
his title and a member of another
branch of the royal family was placed
on the throne.
The last in 1688, Professor Cross
continued, involved James II who
fled during the "Glorious Revolution"
but was brought back and then "pres-
sure was put on the front door and
the back door was opened" so that,
he said, although it was stated that
the throne was vacated, in reality it
was a forced abdication.
The question of the marriage of
the king is undoubtedly a public one,
Professor Cross pointed out, for even
Queen Victoria, who constantly
scolded and reprimanded her min-
isters, nevertheless did not dare defy
her ministers whom she realized were
responsible to Parliament which in
turn was responsible to the people.
In desiring to marry Mrs. Wallis
Simpson, King Edward ran counter
to many factions, Professor Cross ex-
plained. Those who do not recognize
divorce as the high churchmen, even
though * legalized;those who regard
the situation from the moral stand-

Students In Need Of Medical

cause of ill health, or who need
glasses but haven't a sufficiently flex-
ible budget to buy them, or students
who through one emergency or an-
other need some momentary finan-

Ex-Monarch Tells World
He Cannot Live Without
Woman He Loves
Promises Support
To New Sovereign
Largest Radio Audience
In History Hears Last
Speech Of Ex-Ruler
LONDON, Dec. 11.-(P)-Edward
David Windsor, in a broadcast fare-
well to the British Empire he once
ruled, tonight told the world he laid
down the scepter of his forefathers
only because he could not carry on
without "the woman I love"-the
American-born, twice-divorced, Wal-
lis Warfield Simpson.
The greatest radio audience that
ever listened to the words of one man
heard this message carried to the end
of his former "dominions beyond the
seas"-to the corners of the globe:
Burden Too Heavy
"You must believe me when I tell
you that I have found it impossible
to carry the heavy burden of re-
'ponsibility and to discharge my
duties as king as I would wish to do
without the help and support of the
woman I love.
"And I want you to know that the
decision I have made has been mine
and mine alone."
To the 495,000,000 subjects of the
far-flung realm over which he
reigned until but a few hours before,
Edward David Windsor said slowly
and clearly:
"The other person most nearly con-
cerned has tried up to the last to per-
suade me to take a different cose.
"I have made this the most serious
decision of my life only upon the
single thought of what would in the
end be the best for all."
Gives Allegiance To Brother
In a voice as slow and strong as
the words he was speaking, the man
who had been Britain's king pledged
heartfelt allegiance to his younger
brother, the new King George VI.
He sought to dispel for all time the
last vestige of reports of bitterness
between himself and Prime Minister
Stanley Baldwin, the man who told
his king he must not marry Mrs.
Simpson and keep his crown.
"There has never been any consti-
tutional difference between me and
them and between me and Parlia-
The voice of Edward, the man,
broke only once during the brief ad-
dress. That was when he spoke of
Her Majesty, Queen Mother Mary.
"During these hard days," he said,
"I have been comforted by Her-(he
caught his'breath)-Her Majesty, my
mother, and by my family."
Called Prince Edward
Introduced as "his royal highness
Prince Edward" while the chimes of
Big Ben in London tolled the hour of
10 p.m. (5 p.m. E.S.T.), the man who
had been king concluded with:
"God save the king!"
"It may be some time before I re-
turn to my native land, but I shall
always follow the fortunes of the
Br.itish race and empire with pro-
found interest and if at any time
in the future I can be found of serv-
ice to his majesty in a private sta-
tion, I shall not fail."
From Cannes came reports that his
chosen lady, Wallis Warfield Simp-
son, wept openly as she heard his
words "woman I love."
Reports that a British- warship
would take Edward to France gained
some credulity with news that the
destroyer Wolfhound left Portland
at 3 p.m. under sealed orders for an
undisclosed destination.
The admiralty refused any infor-
Two Hours Required
In action swift for all its solemnity,
Parliament required only two hours

and two minutes to give the reign
of Edward VIII to another genera-
tion to judge, and to give the 42-
year-old man freedom to marry the
woman he loves.
The first voluntary abdication bill
in the long history of the British em-
pire was passed ijito law with only
five members of the House of Com-
mons voicing opposition.
The regal House of Lords, shocked
by the momentous precedent it must

motion to invoke rigid rules to hasten pointas e non-coniorm1sLs, are a

Cosgraves Leads Attack
Opposition attacks were led by W.1
T. Cosgrave, leader of the United
Ireland Party, and labor protagonist
William Norton Lee, but President
de Valera said he was determined to
complete action tomorrow.
Lee held the legislation was "being
rushed through with indecent haste."
To Cosgrave's question whether de
Valera intended to sever all relations
with the British commonwealth of
nations and whether he had consult-
ed other members of that common-
wealth, the Irish president replied he
had informed the British government
of his intentions, but had not had
time to consult dominion leaders.
"Canada, Australia, New Zealand'
and South Africa have agreed to cer-
tain action in the present position,"
de Valera said. "But the Free State
government was not prepared to give
assent to the idea that the British
Parliament could legislate for the
Free State."
Still In Commonwealth
The Free State would remain in
the commonwealth, de Valera said,
but would limit its use of the king's
name to foreign affairs. Even the
continuance of the monarch's name
in accrediting Free State ministers
would be dropped, he indicated, if
other autonomous dominions did
The president would take over
functions of the governor general
except that of signing of bills and
dissolving of Parliament-duties

Swimming before a full house at
the annual gala aquatic festival at
the Intramural pool last night, Ed
Kirar, Varsity free styler ploughed
through the 50-yard dash to come in
one-tenth of a second under the
world's record for this event. Kirar
was clocked at 24.7 seconds, but had
been given a two second handicap
giving him a time of 22.7 seconds,
one-tenth of a second under the
Walt Tomski, sophomore Varsity
swimmer, was also clocked under the
existing record by two-tenths of a
second, but jumped the gun dis-
qualifying himself for the final heat.
Both these records are unofficial as
they were not scored in a dual con-
ference or a championship meet. Both
Tomski and Kirar have unofficially
broken the world's record in this
event before. These times were scored
in the preliminary heats. The final,
however, failed to be as fast as the
first heats, the time being 23.3 sec-
onds by Kirar. Ingerson of Ann Ar-
bor High School, having no handicap,
finished first in the final.
In the 100-yard breast-stroke, a
nine second handicap proved too
much for co-captain Jack Kasley to
overcome and he was nosed out by
Johnny Haigh of the yearling squad.
