General Chang, leader of the up-

and a state of alarm declared
throughout the country, the govern-

until General Chiang was released.
'To Regain Manchuria'
Marshal Chang was ruler of Man-
churia's four provinces until the Jap-
anese army in 1931 drove him from
his domain and established therein
the "independent state" of Manchou-
kuo under Japanese protection. Re-
cently he has been in command of
forces in Northwestern China operat-
ing against Chinese communist con-
centrations in Northern Shensi and
Kansu provinces. Marshal Chang
has vowed to regain Manchuria for
China before he died, friends have
The mutineers' demands, as set;
forth in Marshal Chang's circular
telegram, were transmitted to the
central government at Nanking
through the Shensi provincial gov-
(Chinese government censorship
ordinarily does not prevent commu-
nication between Shanghai and To-
kyo, since Japanese government and
other facilities operate outside
Chinese control).
Ireland Recognizes
Ascent Of George'
DUBLIN, Irish Free State, Dec. 12.
-(A:)--The Irish Free State acknowl-
edged the accession of George VI to

the throne of the British Common-
wealth today after declaring his
power in Irish affairs was limited to
representing Ireland abroad.
Frank Fahy, speaker of the Dail'
Eireann-the Free State parliament
--signed a bill recognizing the abdi-
cation of Edward VIII and the en-
thronement of his brother, a measure
which President Eamon De Valera
shoved through parliament.
The fact that it was the speaker
who signed the act into law sym-
bolized the loosening of ties with
Great Britain. Yesterday the king's
representative, the governor-general,
who would normally have signed the
bill, was removed under a hurried-
ly-enacted change in the Free State

Youth Hostelers Plan 30 Inns
For Michigan Hikers, Cyclists

Ann Arbor Will Be Focal
Point Of State Route;
$6,000 Is Needed
Young hikers, cyclists and canoe-
ists will find a chain of informal
inns where they may spend the night
in Michigan this summer. The Amer-
ican Youth Hostelers plan to have
established 30 such stopping places in
the intervening months, with Ann
Arbor as one of the focal points along
the route.
The purpose of the A.Y.H. is to pro-
vide nightly accommodations at 25
cents a person, and food at cost to
hikers. Hostels are set up at points
along a planned loop through coop-
eration of educational and religious
organizations and service clubs.
First In Germany
An old farm house, repaired, has1
miany times been turned into such an
inn. In summer, college dormitories
serve the purpose, and at certain
places rooms have been supplied in
conjunction with tourist homes. The
hostels after having been established,
are self-supporting, and are adminis-
tered by a local committee of the
Problems of raising the $6,000 need-
ed to inaugurate the plan in Mich-
igan will be discussed Saturday, Dec.
19. in Lane Hall, when local members
of a committee named at a meeting
Dec. 1 in the Highland Park Y.W.C.A.
meet with Isabel and Monroe Smith,
who are returning to the East after
a cross-country speaking tour. They
are the founders of the plan in New
England. The plan was first adopted
in Germany in 1910 and has since
spread to 19 European countries.
Beban In Massachusetts
Prof. George G. Ross of the land-
scape design department has been
made chairman of the committee in
charge of Michigan which is desig-
nated as Region 2 in the A.Y.H.

Security Law Demand
WASHINGTON, Dec. 12.-(P)-Dr.
William Haber, director of Michi-

officials of the social security board
today Michigan wanted a "simple and

workers eligible for unemployment
Accompanied by members of a so-

Jewish Views On Ideal
Society To Be Outlined
Students of Far Eastern faiths of
Jewish, Catholic and Protestant tra-

p.m. today in the Grand Rapids Room
of the League in a symposium to
hear three speakers present the out-
looks of their religions on ideal so-

point of "Blueprints for Utopia."
Inquiry Into Ethics
These presentations are to be given
by "studious believers rather than
objective critics," according to Dr.
Edward W. Blakeman, counselor in
religious education. The plan of the
Inter-faith Symposium is projected
as "a sympathetic and reverent in-
quiry into the question of how social
movements, ethical codes, family cus-
toms, race relations, and political
systems have been influenced by the
basic ideas of the various religions
and how the religions in turn have
been influenced by those forces," he

M.S.C., 34-21;
7,250 See Spartans Stop
Wolverines In First Half
Only To Fall .Back Later
Townsend Scores
High With 12 Points
Despite the ball-hawking of Capt.
Ronnie Garlock and the ravages of
an "off" night, the Michigan basket-
ball team outplayed a Michigan State
five last night at Yost Field House by
a 34-to-21 score for its second straight
victory of this season.
A crowd of 7,250 persons saw the
Spartans emphasize their defense to
such a degree that they stopped the
Varsity for one half only to find their
offense useless ad drop behind in
the second period before the basket-
shooting ,of Jakt Townsend and a
superior Wolverin team.
Townsend I High Scorer
Last week afte Michigan had de-
feated Michigan *ormal, 61 to 12, in
he opener, Ben an AlstyneMich-
igan State's wary oach, said that he
just hoped his boys looked good. He
didn't see how they could win. Well,
he should be satisfied for they fol-
lowed his instructions well and kept
the Varsity in hot water for 30 min-
utes of the ball game.
Van Alstyne had his guards drop-
ping in on Townsend, and Howard
Kraft, who covered Jake, playing the
ball rather than his man. Such tac-
ics were inevitable. If Van Alstyne
hadn't used them, someone else would
have. The result was that the Mich-
igan screen plays couldn't get going
and Townsend scored more than a
third of his team's points despite
the fact that he didn't shoot as often
as he might have.
Neither team was hitting. The Wol-
verines were disgracefully weak at the
foul line, hitting but six of 18 at-
tempts and the upstaters weren't
much better, connecting caly five
times out of 13 chances.
M.S.C. Hawks Ball
Michigan State tried everything to
stop Michigan from winning its third
straight cage victory overthem, but
didn't have enough. Van Alstyne's
bcys were after every loose ball and,
despite theghandicap of height, they
were strong on the backboard play,
and showed that they had been well-
c ached for the Wolverines' tip-off
But the Lansing team couldn't get
through the Michigan defense often
enough to keep pace with the Var-
sity's scoring ability and when it did
get through it was forced to take its
shots so fast that the players couldn't
get set.

Church Topics

Yuletide Spirit
Music And Art Emphasis
To Be Used To Portray
Christmas Theme
Emphasis on music and art will
bring to flower the colorful spirit of
Christmas in Ann Arbor church
services today.
Unique in its portrayal of the
Christmas theme by means of the
dance, poetry and music, the Uni-

tarian Church offers a program in-
spired, according to the Rev. H. P.
Marley, by a belief that religious art
today must be an expression of the'
modern spirit rather than a survival
The church must be experimental in
the sense of discovering new truth
and creating new symbols of beauty
to represent this new experience, Mr.
Marley said.
In accord with the belief that just
as art needs religion in the sense of
some universal ethical content, re-
ligion needs art, in the sense of
beauty, he explained, the twilight
service at 5 p.m. will be conducted in
a setting of brilliant lighted chancel
trees and carols; the program itself
will have three distinct sections, an-
cient, medieval and modern.
Part one, called Genesis and Rev-
elation will deal with the universal
idea of motherhood and the birth ofI
a new religion. The second part will
be that of Messiahhood or the tra-!
ditional belief of Christianity. Thr e
f ach chorales will furnish the music

of Jesus. Part three, or Christmas in

H e r e Monday
Noted Pianist Makes His
Fourth Appearance In
Ann Arbor Since 1920
The world famous pianist and
composer, Josef Hofmann will present
the sixth Choral Union concert of
the current series at 8:15 p.m. tomor-
row in Hill Auditorium. It will be
the fourth appearance of Hofmann
before an Ann Arbor audience. He
played here in 1920, 1927, and 1929.
Ranked as one of the foremostI
piano virtuosos today, Hofmann has1
been giving concerts throughout the!
world for more than 50 years. Born
in Cracow, Poianc, of a musically-r
inclined family, Hofmann was play-
ing the piano at the age of three
and at the age of five he made his
professional debut in Warsaw. I
His New York debut in Carnegie
Hall was made when he was nine
years old, but he soon returned to
Europe where he continued studying
under t le greatcst pianists on the
continent, including Anton Rubin-
stein. who accepted Hofmann as his
only pupil. At 18 he again returned
to the concert stage and since then
has been continuously before the
public in concert performances, re-
maining in this country as his adopt-
ed home.
The program which Hofman will
offer is as follows:
Haydn: Theme and Variations in
F Minor; Beethoven; Fury Over the
Lost Penny; Schumann: Fasching-
schwank; Chopin: Barcarolle, Noc-
turne in F Sharp Minor, Grande Valse
Brillante, Scherzo in C Sharp Minor.
Albeniz-Godowsky: Tango; Rach-
manincfi: Prelude in a Minor; Hof-
mann: Berceuse; Lisza: Campanella.

Michigan Beats
McMaster, 6-3;
Heyliger Stars
Scores Four Goals - Two
Unaided - Assists James
On Other Two Tallies
In their fourth start of the season,
the Wolverine hockey team handed
a 6-to-3 defeat to the forces repre-
senting McMaster University from
Hamilton, Ontario, and in so doing
regained any prestiege they lost last
winter when the Purple let them
down, 6 to 5.
Capt. Vic Heyliger was the focal
point of the Michigan attack, having
a hand in each of the six goals the
Michigan squad scored. His record
for the evening credits him with four
goals, two of which were unassisted,
in addition to having assisted Gib
James on both of his second period
The game opened with both squads'
playing cautiously, taking no chances,
and waiting for a break to ease the
tension and get things going. At the
three-minute mark, husky Murray
McLean tripped Vic Heyliger as the
Concord Flash was rounding the Mc-
Master defense, and was immediately
chased to the penalty box. Coach
Lowery substituted Berryman for
Simpson, and the power play was on.
The four forwards swarmed all over
and around the Purple cage, but just
couldn't get the disk past goalie Rich-
ardson. Capt. Heyliger did beat him
on a long shot from just inside the
red line, but referee Paddy Ferrell
ruled an off-side on the play and the
goal was not allowed.
McLean had hardly returned to the
ice when George Cooke tripped Jerry
Lawrence at the Michigan red line,
and was sent away for two minutes.
McMaster then went into their gang-
ing attack but in vain as Bill Wood
kept his cottage clean. After 15 min-
utes of play, Buck Leal and Gord Mc-
Adam collided at the Michigan red
line and Leal went down in a heap,
and had to be helped from the ice. He
