Varsity Falls
To Purdue's
Speed, 37-26
Young Tallies 14 Points
To Remain Number One
Big Ten Scorer
Gee Leads Varsity
With Nine Points
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Jan. 9.-(Spe-
cial to The Daily)-Speed was too
much for Michigan's height advan-
tage once again as the Purdue fire-
horses broke past the Wolverines
time and time again to defeat the
Michigan basketball team in its Big
Ten opener 37 to 26.
Six thousand jammed the Jeffer-
son High School gym to see Piggy
Lambert's boys weather 'a close half
that ended 16 to 14 for the Boiler-
makers and then forge ahead in the
last half of the second period.
The outstanding factor of the Pur-
duce victory was really Seward's tip-
off performance despite Jewell
Young's 14 points. It was Seward's
surprising ability to take the ball
away from Capt. Johnny Gee at the
center circle that kept Michigan from
controlling the ball.
Townsend Is Stoppd
But just as important perhaps was
the manner in which Lambert had
his boys dropping back on Jake
Townsend and stopping the varsity's
pass plays, which proved absolutely
useless against the Purdue defense.
Gee led Michigan's scoring with
nine points. Gene Anderson, whom
Lambert threw into the starting line-
up to counter-balance Michigan's
great height advantage, was second
behind Young with eight points.
In the first half Purdue didn't &ry'
to work the ball in against the strong
Michigan defense but rather popped
away at the basket from the floor in
an attempt to pull the Wolverine
offense in and then fake around
them. But these tactics proved use-
less and in the second half they went
back to their fast breaks and a sur-
prising delayed offense that is new
to the Lafayette club's repertoire.
Gee looked good for the Varsity
until he began to slow up in the sec-
ond half. He took over the load
shifted to him by the ineffectiveness
of Townsend's pass offense but could
not turn the tide.
Purdue Starts Scoring
Purdue couldn't get started in the
first half but got going once they had
worked up a sweat in the last period.
The Boilermaker defense was re-
markable and they took the breaks
as they came.
Seward took the opening tip off.
The two teams felt each other out
playing cautious ball. Anderson
opened the scoring when he was
fouled by Townsend. Purdue re-
taliated as Seward shoved Gee who
tied up the score. Then Anderson
held Townsend and Michigan went
ahead as Jake sunk his shot. After
about three minutes of play Gee
fooled Seward and got away under
the basket to put the Wolverines
ahead, 4 to 1. Pattanelli fouled Down-
ey who made good and then Ander-
son held Townsend shooting, and he
made good once ingtwo attempts.
Anderson and Townsend traded foul
shots. Young sank the Boilermakers'
first field goal from far out on the
floor and Gee evened it up with a
pivot shot.
Downey broke through a Michigan
pass and went under the basket un-
molested to make it 8 to 7 for Michi-

gan. Young made a foul shot and
then hit on a fast break. Townsend

Husband Tells DeVine He
Knew Nothing Of Wife's
Actions Until Trial
Betty Baker's attorneys prepared
to make their last efforts to save
her from conviction as a murderer
yesterday as her loyal, innocent po-
liceman-husband, Albert, swore he
was ignorant of his wife's intimate
George J. Lutz, Jr., chairman
of the Ann Arbor police com-
mission, denied yesterday news-
paper reports that Patrolman
Baker was suspended from the
force because he smashed the
plates of a Detroit Times pho-
tographer who tried to take his
picture Friday in the court room.
Patrolman Baker is merely
relieved of his duties during the
trial, Mr. Lutz said, and will re-
sume work on the force, if he de-
sires, when the trial is completed.

Schneider, whom she killed.
In a low, steady voice, he told De-
fense Counsel Frank B. De Vine that
the first time he learned of her inti-
mate relations with Schneider was
'here in this court room." Mrs.
Baker had previously frankly con-.
fessed her illicit affairs with Schneid-
er, declaring her husband could not
"satisfy" her.
Circuit Judge George W. Sample
recessed the court over the week-end,
and the trial will be resumed follow-
ing hearings on motions and' short
causes tomorrow. It appeared doubt-
ful that it would get underway be-
fore afternoon, although the judge
cited the possibility he would finish
hearings at 10:30 a.m. and instructed
the jury to return at that time. Mr.
De Vine will first call Traffic Officer
Caspar Enkeman, police department
gun expert who oiled Patrolma

ably conclude the testimony. The
defense will then make its plea to

The second session of the Inter-

3-5 p.m. today in the Grand Rapids
Room of the Michigan League with
Prof. Yuen Z. Chan, visiting lecturer
in English, delivering the main ad-
dress on the topic "Shall We Abolish

Rabbi Bernard Heller, director of
Hillel Foundation, and Prof. Pres-
ton W. Slosson of the history de-
partment will give the viewpoints of
the Jewish and Christian traditions
respectively among the lines sug-
gested by the Confucian approach to
this subject, as explained by Profes-
sor Chan.
The practical significance, it was
announced, of the question, is wheth-

Ten Commandments on the one

180 Millions Said
To Be Hitler's Stake
BERLIN, Jan. 9.--(P)-Chancellor
Adolf,.Hitler, hoping for colonies and
raw materials, has dispatched 15,000
to 25,000 volunteers to aid Spanish
Fascists and spent $180,000,000 on
the civil war, private advices said
There were official denials of Ger-
man assistance to Fascists Gen.
Francisco Franco, and Berlin spokes-
men declared no knowledge of re-
ported military and commercial ac-
tivity in Spanish Morocco.
But private German sources de-
clared Hitler had advised Franco to
hasten and capture Madrid by Jan.
15, and that his objectives in the
war were return of World War lost
colonies, mining concessions in Spain
or its possessions, and economic aid
from other European powers.
Numerous assertions were heard
privately that at least 15,000 men
have gone to the Fascist front, these
assertions broken only by usually re-
liable informants who placed the fig-
ure at 25,000 men.
10,000 Regular Soldiers
One reliable person, close to au-
thoritative sources of information,
placed the cost of the civil war to
Germany at 450,000,000 marks which
he said was approved when Nazi
leaders saw a good chance of Fascist
About 10,000 of the German vol-
unteers were said to be regular Reich
soldiers, the rest labor and youth
organizers, and miners dispatched to
work in mines in Morocco and Spain.
Franco has asked a minimum of
10,000 men,sinformed persons said,
and Gen. Wilhelm Faupel, Nazi am-
bassador to the Spanish Fascist gov-
ernment, was reported reliably to
have estimated the force necessary
at 130,000 men.
The Nazi government issued for-
mal denial tonight that Geman
troops were "penetrating" Morocco
or that "German troops" were in
either Spain or Spanish Morocco.
The statement was issued by the'
official German news agency for use
abroad and was not published in Ger-
MADRID, Jan. 9.--()-The death
of Prof. Leonardo De Torres Que-
vedo, 83, noted Spanish engineer and
inventor of the cable railway at Ni-
agara Falls, was disclosed tonight.
He died Dec. 18 of bronchial pneu-
monia in Madrid.
He was known as Spain's "Edison"
but his death passed without notice
in the Spanish press which was ab-
sorbed with the civil war.
Two Residents Hurt
By Auto Accidents
Automobile accidents involving two
Ann Arbor residents occurred last
night. Geraldine Drayer, 1122 Hut-
chins Street and Charles Sauer, 78,
228 Murray Ave. were injured.
.Miss Drayer was struck while cross-
ing Huron Street by a car driven by
Donald Loomis, 723 East Kingsley
Street. She suffered a broken nose
and several bruises.
Sauer was hit by a car driven by
Mrs. Edna Cook, when he attempted
to cross West Washington Street. He

was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital
for treatment of a broken leg.
No arrests were made in either

Sarnia Taken
In Late Rally
y Michigan
Heyliger And 'Red' France
Draw Major Penalties In
Hockey Contest
Final Count 2-1 In
Heated Overtime
A gallant Michigan hockey team
that came from behind late in the
third period, carried the best ama-
teur club in southern Ontario into
overtime ,and then, while 1,300 par-
tisan fans howled with glee, banged
home the goal that marked a 2-1 tri-
umph over Pt. Edward of Sarnia, and
gave the Wolverines their third win
in a row.
The Wolverines treated the crowd
that jammed the old Coliseum last
night to a real show as they outdid
themselves to trounce their more ex-
perienced and more numerous red
shirted opponents.
Included in the evening's fireworks
was a great pummelling match be-
tween Captain Vic Heyliger of Mich-
igan and John 'Red' France of Sar-
nia. Midway in the third period,
France fed the Beaver the butt end
of his stick. Vic hesitated just a mo-
ment and then wentto it. Referee
Paddy Farrell and other players sep-
arated the belligerents and, in addi-
tion to giving both players major
penalties, meted out a ten-minute
misconduct penalty to France.
Play was hard and rough through-
out the entire seventy minutes and
more than once the game was halted
while members of both teams took
time out to make personal repairs.
Lou Rutter was chased in the
first two minutes of the game, but
Pt. Edward went on defense and held
a four-man Michigan attack until
Rutter returned. With six minutes
left in the opening stanza Bob Simp-
son took Tommy Prudence, veteran
Sarnia winger, out of th play with
a crashing body check, but Referee
Farrell ruled that he used his knee
on the play' and Bob rested out for
two minutes while the- Wolverines
played defensive hockey.
Heyliger was chased for spilling
Bill Levan early in the second period
and the compliment was returned
a couple of minutes later when Grant
spilled the Michigan captain. James
and Fabello worked in close, but

Failure Of 'Tomato
Juice' Contest Laid
To Lack Of Entries
o President Ruthven refused yester-
day to announce the winners of his
"tomato juice" contest.
The contest was originated two
months ago when President Ruthven
offered a first prize of "From Ver-
mont to Michigan," edited by Wil-
fred B. Shaw, director of alumni re-
lationships, for the best essay on
the true objectives of college life by
a woman student.
One can of tomato juice and one
lipstick were named as second and.
third prizesrespectively.
There was a rumor last night that
no one received prizes, that Presi-
dent Ruthven's refusal to announce
the winners meant that there was
no winner. Basis for this rumor was
another rumor, to the effect that no
one entered the contest, which in
turn was based on the rumor that
President Ruthven did not want to

reveal the rumor that there were no
entries, and so-this is according to
fact-did not announce the winners,
if there were winners.

Choice Between Excessive
Union Power Or Internal
Strife Faces Employers
DETROIT, Jan. 9.-(Special to
The Daily)-Of slight immediate im -
portance, the action of the American
Federation of Labor's metal trade
department instructing its workers to
return to their jobs in closed General
Motors plants appeared here today as
immensely significant to the future
of organized automobile labor.
This action by John P. Frey, presi-
dent of the department, followed the'
demand by eight AFL craft unions
Friday that General Motors refuse to
recognize the United Automobile
Workers as the sole bargaining
agency to the corporation's employes.
Although the number of craft

Relief To Take
Congress' Eye'
Western Representatives
Seek Additional Funds
For Work Relief
WASHINGTON, Jan. 9.-(P)-
Congress completed its first week'
today with a broad first month's leg-
islative program already shaped.
The Senate, ready to go to work,
expected to begin committee consid-
eration next week of the Roosevelt
administration plan to prolong the
life of the monetary and other emer-
gency laws.
Slower to organize, the House
planned to complete the task of
forming its committees early next
week, but leaders forecast it would be
another week before any legislation
would be ready for floor debate.
Though leaders plan to push four
bills through by the end of the
month, they say there is little likeli-
hood of either house acting on any1
of them before the inauguration,
January 20.
The four measures slated for con-
sideration this month are:
A deficiency appropriation bill
carrying at least $790,000,000 for
work relief and other agencies for
the rest of this fiscal year.
An administration bill to extend,
until June 30, 1939, the President's"
power to devalue the dollar and use
the $2,000,000,000 stabilization fund)
to regulate foreign exchange.
Another administration measure to
extend authority to issue Federal Re-"
serve notes on the basis of govern-
ment obligations.
A third extension bill, continuing
the life of the Reconstruction Fi-
nance Corporation, until June 30,
An effort to add $200,000,000 to the
work relief fund for the balance of
this fiscal year got under way today
at a meeting of Senators and Repre-
sentatives from six western states. On
the other hand Senator King (Dem.,
Utah) proposed to cut the recom-
mended fund in half.
Richberg Sees
Second NR.A.
As Possibility
DAYTON, O., Jan. 9.-GP)-An im-
plied prediction that any legislation
to put business under Federal reg-
ulation-void of any infringement of
civil liberty guaranties-would pass
a constitutional test came today from'
Donald R. Richberg.
The former NRA chieftain told the
Ohio State Bar Association conven-

"Where there is a clear need for
Federal legislation to regulate bus-
iness for its own protection and in
the public interest . . . there are no
constitutional limitations to obstruct,
the enforcement of laws which do not
infringe upon the fundamental guar-
anties of civil liberty."
" * *v* future prospects may be de-
scribed as in an airway weather re-
port: 'Fair weather, straight ahead
with thunderstorms on the right and
left.' ,
Stressing that prevailing public
opinion is "the primary source of law
in a democracy," Richberg said con-
stitutional interpretations "should be
a consistent expression of that public
opinion-not the discordant, indivi-
dual opinions of men officially se-
lected to interpret and apply the

union members in the industry is
small the "rebellion" demonstrates
that auto employers are facing this
dilemma: I. If a sole bargaining
contract is not granted to the UAW,
(and even union officials' here are
not overconfident of so thorough a
victory) employers can expect costly
disputes, jurisdictional and other-
wise, between the several union or-
ganizations: 2. If a sole bargaining
contract is granted, employers can
fear the possibility of excessive de-
mands from an all powerful union,
and variously manifested dissatisfac-
tions on the part of workers with-
out the UAW; 3. To broaden this to
a national scale, suc'cess of the UAW
might precipitate a nation-wide open
warfare between AFL and CIO
unions since eight of the nation's
most important craft unions have
already gone on record as preferring
to "scab" rather than see the UAW
successful in its demands; 4. With
these possibilities in mind, it is un-
derstandable that General Motors
seems unwilling even to negotiate on7
a national scale with the UAW.
A letter of-"thanks" and "deep re-
gret" sent to Gov. Frank Murphy
late today by Homer Martin, presi-
dent of the UAW was generally in-
terpreted here as indicating that the
Union does not believe the Governor
can assist its ends substantially, andi
that to "eliminate" the Governor in;
this fashion will force PresidentI
Roosevelt to assume responsibility for
a settlement of the strike.

positions in the automotive strike
deadlock which several days of con-

Gov. Frank Murphy of Michigan
and representatives of the United
States Department of Labor have
conferred with Corporation officials
and Union leaders in efforts to bring
them together to start negotiations.
U.A.W. List Demands
Despite the seeming impasse,
Murphy said late today, "I believe
both sides want to work out a settle-
ment. It can be and should be done."
A few minutes earlier, the United
Automobile Workers listed their pre-
negotiation demands as Union recog-
nition (whether as sole bargaining
agency for General Motors employes
was not specified); and a written
guarantee that, if "stay in" strikers
are withdrawn from plants they hold,
the 'Corporation will not remove
equipment or attempt to reopen the
plants. They also demanded im-
mediate cessation of anti-strike ac-
tivity such as circulation of petitions,
"organization of vigilantes," and
"threatening or coercion of em-
The Union's statement given to the
Governor said, "You have already
informed us that General Motors will
not subscribe to such a guarantee,"
and expressed determination "to con-
tinue this struggle with all lawful
means at our disposal until genuine
and effective collective bargaining is
accorded to the employes" of General

William S. Knudsen, executive
vice-president of the Corporation, re-
iterated in a telegram to Msgr. John
A. Ryan of the National Catholic
Welfare Conference the Corpora-
tion's stand that "We cannot permit
occupancy of our plants contrary to
law." General Motors has insisted
"stay in" strikers must vacate plants
before negotiations begin.
His telegram was in response to
an offer of aid toward strike settle-
ment by Msgr. Ryan and two other
Assurance that General Motors
would not enter any agreement with
any organization "interfering with
legitimate jurisdiction" of craft
unions in its factories was given to
John P. Frey, president of the metal
trades department of the American
Federation of Labor, in a telegram
from H. W. Anderson of the Corpor-
ation's labor department.
'Both Sides Doing Best'
Frey telegraphed the Cleveland
Metal Trades Council that its craft

Union members were "in no way
bound" by the action of strikers at
the Fisher Body Company plant
there. The automobile workers union
is an affiliate of the Committee for
fndustrial Organization whose lead-
ers were suspended by the Federation
of Labor.
The U.A.W.A. statement late to-
day, declaring General Motors has
rejected "all reasonable proposals,"
"The law of the land requires more
than a vague promise to be law abid-
ing. It lays down definite specifica-
tions as to what are the employer's
obligations in the matter of genuine
collective bargaining. These have
not been met."
Murphy, reporting that "both sides
have been doing their best" in the
conciliation conferences, expressed
hope "that the parties will soon place
their differences on a status of con-
ciliation and arbitration which
should characterize the handling of
a great problem like this in an ad-
vanced and progressive community."

New Cabinet Post With Hopkins
For Job Seen Likely By Dorr

The creation of a new cabinet post
for the supervision of relief with
Harry Hopkins, Federal relief admin-
istrator, likely to be the first person
to hold the job was deemed a definite
possibility yesterday by Prof. Harold
M. Dorr of the political science de-
"Although no official statements
have been made," Professor Dorr said,
"persistent rumors in Washington
have it that a new executive depart-
ment will be created to supervise re-
lief and recovery agencies with a sec-
retary of cabinet standing."
There is every evidence, Professor
Dorr said, that the national govern-
ment does not intend to abandon
the staeo in their nwn resnrce in

"Evidence that the government in-
tends not only to continue but per-
haps increase benefits to states can
be found in the provisions of the
Social Security Act."
There are seven categories in which
the govei'nment has promised in the
Social Security Act to give subven-
tions and grants to the states. Direct
aid is pledged to states that cooperate
with the national government for
providing mothers' pensions, aid for
maternal and child health, aid for
crippled and neglected children and
help for a program of blind and
public health. Vocal rehabilitation is
also included in the plans for na-
tional help.
