Farm Bill Sent
To Roosevelt
After Congress
New Crox Control Measure
Passes Senate, 56 To 31,
Despite Heated Attacks
Com proiui*e Act To
Limit Production
WASHINGTON, Feb. 14.- (P) - A
crop control bill, praised as "the best
farm bill ever enacted" and de-
nounced as "regimentation" ant
"more harness" for the farmer, re-
ceived final Congressional approval
The me'asure, establishing a sys-
tem under which the Secretary of
Agriculture, in cooperation with
farmer committees, may prescribe
limitations upon the quantity of
wheat, corn, cotton, rice and to-
bacco grown or marketed, now goes
to the White House for the expected
signature of President Roosevelt.
The last step in its tortuus our-
ney' through Congress which began
in mid-November, was taken when
the Senate adopted a comprmoiise
,easure, 56 to 31. The compropIs is
based upon the conflicting bills
passed originally by House and Sen-
While the bill establishes vary-
ing approaches for each of the crops
affected, in general it directs the
Secretary of Agriculture to make an
etimate of the expected supply, set
phis figure against expected demand
and adjust production acordingly.
Ti*s would be done by paying
benefits to farmers whoaplanted no
more than a specified acreage. In
addition, in years of bumper crops,
the Secretary of Agriculture would
be empowered to fix marketin
qutotas, limiting the quantities that
could be sld and thereby protecting
the price. Such quotas would be d-
pendent on a two-thirds vote .:
Zmers taking part in special refer-
enda. , -
Because of the big crops of the
fa year, the Administration began'
agitaig for farm legislation next
spring, to replace the old Agriculture
Adjustment Act invalidated by the{
supreme Court. Congress agreed u,
make the legislation the first order
of business upon reconvening, and
President Rooevelt called a special
session last fall to deal with this,'
among other problems.
Before Christmas, divergent bills
were approved by both House and
Senate after much stormy debate.
Ullon reconvening after the. holidays
a conference committee representing
both Houses took up the task of
working the provisions of the two
measures into one bill.
In so doing they incurred the
wrath of dairy and cattle interests
by. eliminating provisions, contained
in ,both bills, preventing farmers
from going into the dairying or cat-
tle raising business on land with-
drawn from crop production.

Crisler Not Ready To Name. Aides;
Doesn't Expect To Be 'Miracle Man'

Says He Has Not Invited'
Any Former Assistant
To Follow Him Here
Herbert 0. (Fritz) Crisler, Mich-
igan's new head football coach, yes-
terday declared that he is unprepared
as yet to formulate his staff of as-
sistants. "I haven't made any recom-
mendations to the board because I'm
not quite ready on them."
Crisler further stated that he had'
not asked Tad Weiman or any of his
other Princeton assistants to accom-
pany him to Michigan. "They're being
considered as my successor at Prince-
ton." He indicated that action at
Princeton would largely influence his
ieicmmerdatons. Besides Weiman
Cris4er had Earl Martincau and
Campbell Dickson, backfield and end
coach respectively, assisting him in
the East.
Crisler arrived in town yesterday
morning with Mrs. Crisler and spent
a busy day with University author-
ities, newspapermen. Michigan alumni
and Varsity football candidates. e
was favorably received by all and ex-
pressed his pleasdre at being associat-
ed with Michigan.
At the meeting of the gridders he
".old of the signal distinction it was
to begin his football career under
Amos Alonzo Stagg, former venerable
coach at Chicago, and now to work
under Fielding H. Yost, another im-
posing gridiron figure in Conference
football. He stressed the value of de-
siring to play the game. "If there's
my team on next year's schedule any
of you think you can't beat, you might
as well not come out," he told his
Crirler was hesitant in speaking
about his football aides. "I'd lik'e to
familiarize myself with the problem
here before deciding just what as-
'Istants I need," he said.j
Today he expects to confer with
athleti cofficials on various mattersj
regarding his new job. He will be
guest of honor at a banquet of Mich-
igan alumni at Flint tonight. To-'
morrow he is slated to attend a lunch-
eon given by the Detroit group of
%lumni. Then he plans to return to
Princeton to wind up his business

Two Campus Unknowns
Get Crislers' Dinner Bid
Two anonymous Michigan students
may be the honored dinner guests of
Coach and Mrs. Herbert 0. Crisler
if they will reveal their identity to
the newly-appointed Wolverine men-
tor. Coach Crisler yesterday reiterat-
ed an offer he made in the accom-
panying interview by Elsie Pierce
"I don't quite remember the young
man's name," Crisler said. "But I
tihink he said he was in the Law
School and that he played baseball.
His name might have been Cowan. We
gave him a lift from Miami to some-
where in Georgia during the holidays.
He was in the South for the Michigan
State-Auburn Orange Bowl game, and
get on the wrong team, I believe."
Crisler met the young lady on a
train en route from Ann Arbor two
weeks ago. "She said she'd like to see
Tom Hamilton hired as the new foot-
ball coach," Michigan's coach re-
called. "I asked her what she thought
of the others considered, and when
she got around to me, whatever vanity
I might have had certainly disap-
peared. I believe she siod she was

Crisler was.

Dr. Ipatieff occupies a high place
in modern chemistry, and his dis-
coveries have been the basis for many
industrial processes, particularly in
the refining of petroleum. In this
field he has made great contributions
through his methods of condensation
and polymerization, which make it
possible to convert waste refinery
gases into valuable high-gfirade com-
mercial gasolines. In addition he
synthesized isoprene, "mother hy $'o-
gen rubber," and made many discov-
eries known well by chemists and
chemical engineers.
Dr. Ipatieff is known international-
ly, having received honorary degrees
from the Universities of Munich and
Strasbourg, and having been named
Commander of the Legion of Honoi
by the French government.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Mrs. Bedle, editor of

Princeton, N. J, interviewed Michigan's
new coach jst before he left the Uni-
versity for which he formrnily coached).
PRINCETON, N.J., Feb. 13.-
(Special to the Daily)-Herbert O.
(Fritz) Crisler doesn't expect to be
a "miracle man" his first season at
Michigan, but he's going to do his
best to make a creditable show-
So he expressed himself to F. L.
Redpath, sports editor of The Daily
Princetonian, and this writer just
before he left for Ann Arbor.
He hopes he'll have the utmost in
cooperation from students and al-
iamni, he said, and he thinks he'll
get it too. "I know of no other col-
lege except Princeton which has a
more devoted group of alumni than
Michigan-and with Princeton al-
umni it's more than devotion, it's
emotional hysteria," he said.
He does think it ironic that he
should be going to Michigan though,
for he started his career under Stagg
at Chicago, and in those days there
were no moresbitter football rivals
in the business than Stagg and
Fielding H. Yost. Crisler graduated
from Chicago in 1922, where he first
coached. Later he went to Minne-
sota and came to Princeton in 1932.
The consensus around Princetonj
s that Crisler, despite poor prospects
for the '38 season here, was induced
o go to Michigan only by the offer
of the job as Director of Atheltics
when Fielding H. Yost retires. Right
now Crisler will become an associate
professor as -well as head coach. He
doesn't intend to0keep on coaching

WASHINGTON, Feb. 14.-P(A)-
Tongressiona lheaders who customar-
ly reflect the Administration's view
n foreign relations agreed today that
'nother disarmament conference or
vorld naval powers would be "futile.'
Chairman McReynolds (Dem.
renn.) of the House Foreign Affain
Committee informed reporters aftei
t visit to the White House that he
knew a call for a conference was "noi
in the wind bcause a conferenc
could not be had at this time with
ny success."
"Limitation Impossible"
Chairman Pittman (Dem., Nev.) o
the Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee, equally cool toward a confer-
ence, told newsmen:
"If it was impossible by reason of
distrust and fear to accomplish a sub-
tantial limitation of arms in 1922-
when there was no threat of war-and
in 1935, then there can be no hope
it present for success.

ings on a program to authorize 47
new warships, 22 auxiliaries and 1,-
000 airplanes, naval committeemet

They listened with obvious amaze-
ment to his statement that he would
not go to war against an invader,
even to protect hisa mother and sis-
"An attempt to increase military
appropriatiops," he added, "is noth-
ing but an anti-social action in view
of unemployment and relief needs,"
The Methodist Youth Council, with
perhaps 100,000 members in 30 states,
he said, is pledged not to fight in any
war in the Orient.

Loyalists Indomitable Courage'
Impresses Ann Arbor Volunteer

The indomitable courage of the
Spanish people's army, "growing in
numbers and experience every day,"
is being impressed unforgettably into
the experience of Robert A. Cummins
of Ann Arbor, senior editorial writer
for the Daily last year, now fighting
with the Loyalist army.
In a letter to one of his student
friends, Cummins describes the long
line (the people's army) that knew
many "among it were living the last
15 minutes of their lives, but there
was none who did not subordinate
that thought to his determination to
save his people from fascism."
Cummins, with Elman Service, '37,
and Ralph Neafus, '37, joined the In-
ternational Brigade upon his gradua-
tion last semester and is now a brigade

touched when you say that "Mattes,

different times wondered whether

got a B); how is Pete Lisagor's pool
game; and wished Tuure were here to
give his imitation of the cat.
"The only news I have had of pro-
gressive activities on the campus was
the swell story of the Daduk meeting.
