War Fear Revived
As Italy And Soviet
Hit New Deadlock

Rome's Refusal To Make
More Concessions Held
To Doom Peace Plans
Next Move Depends
On SessionTuesday
LONDON, Oct. 23--(IP--A Fascist
warning that Italy had made her
last concession, coupled with unyield-
ing Russian opposition to the Italian
stand, today swept away Europe's op-
timism for a settlement of the prob-
lem of foreign intervention in the
Spanish civil war.
The 68th session of the non-inter-
vention sub-committee has been
called for Tuesday but it promised
nothing but continued disputes be-
tween representatives of Europe's
great powers.
Italy Still Unyielding
The statement issued at Rome by
the official Stefany News Agency and
believed to have been written by Mus-
solini, himself, said that "to believe
Italy can make further concessions
(on plans to withdraw foreign troops
from Spain) is absurd."-
The statement was accepted in
London diplomatic quarters as a vir-
tual obituary notice for the plan by
which Britain had hoped for the
withdrawal of volunteers and an at-
tendant lessening of the danger of
the civil war becoming a general con-
The efforts of the non-intervention
nations were considered to have been
set back to the point where they
were before Italy made what Foreign
Secretary Anthony Eden called "a
welcome contribution" to the prob-
lem of getting foreign troops ot of
Russia Submits Refusal
Italy's contribution was her ac-
ceptance last Wednesday of the nine-
point plan presented by Britain. She
later qualified this, however, with
the condition that all other powrs
agree in full, but immediately drew
a flat refusal from Russia to accept
political responsibility for the plan.
The main discussion Tuesday is ex-
pected to center on whether the na-
tions would agree to accept the fig-
ures of the two commissions which
the British plan proposed to be sent
to Spain to determine, among other
things, how many volunteers were
fighting for the Insurgents and the
government. These figures would be
the basis for calculating troop with-
drawals from both sides,.

A Communistic threat hung over

Ann Arbor's new sanitary code pro-j

ter C, Sadler announced yesterday.
Rigid specifications for the various
phases of restaurant sanitation have
been set up by Franklin Fiske, city
sanitary inspector, and eating places
will be marked on a percentage basis.
The first inspection which will
begin Monday is necessarily ed'uca-
tional both to Fiske and to the res-
taurant owners, the Mayor pointed
out, and the results therefore will{
not be made public. After a fifteen-
day preliminary period all health de-
partment records dealing with the
restaurant situation will be open to
the public. "We expect to have cer-
tificates giving the health depart-
ment's grade posted in all the city's
140 eating places within 30 days," he
Declaring he wished to spike ru-

deliberately stalling in the present

instructed the city sanitary inspector
to speed up his inspections as much
as possible.

Backwash Brings
Of $10 In Some
But Plants Keep



NEW YORK, Oct. 23.-(jP)-A brisk
backwash of selling in the stock mar-
ket today swept away much of the re-
covery from the low levels reached in
Tuesday's huge wave of liquidation.
Shares of steel companies and rail-
roads, particularly, were pressed for
sale and taken only at sharply lower
prices. As the closing gong sounded
declines of $1 to $10 were numerous.j
This brought to a close the most
strenuous and disturbing week which i
Wall Street had experienced since the
spectacular uprush of prices in the
first few months of the New Deal end-
ed with a precipitant slump in July,
1933. Price averages were again back
in the area in which they fluctuated a
from the summer 01 1933 until well
along into 1935.
Today's setback did not take Wall
Street altogether by surprise, as er-
ratic fluctuations would be in keep-
ing with past experience after such a
selling wave as that which came to a
climax with the 7,000,000-share turn-
over on Tuesday.
Yet the week's business reports
were scanned anxiously for evidence
as to whether the stock market wasi
foreshadowing an important inter-
ruption to the course of recovery, or
giving way to some internal weak-!
ness, or possibly a combination ofi
Most encouraging aspects of the
outlok were reports of brisk retail
trade over the country the past week,
in most areas substantially above a
year ago.
Also, while such manufacturing
lines as steel and textiles, and build-
ing operations, were well under last
year at this time, it was noted that
the motor makers went forward with
large-scale production of 1938 models,
Detroit estimates showing 91,905 cars
and trucks made the past week, com-
pared with only 64, 310 in the same
week of 1936.

Outnumbering Sophs 5
To 1, Yearlings Sweep
Flag And Cane Rushes
Second-Year Men
Annex Pillow Fight
Scores of freshmen surged down
on a forlorn little band of sophomores
yesterday and emerged victorious in
the flag rush as the annual class
games were resumed before many
protographers and few spectators at
South Ferry Field.
Continuing the Black Friday vic-
tory of last night, 150 freshmen
crashe dthrough the 30 defending
sophomores and sent Bob Forsythe
of Ann Arbor to the top of the
greased pole in less than seven min-
utes to nab the flag.
Cane Rush First Event
In the other two events, the cane
rush and the pillow fight, the class
of '40 averted an all-around defeat
by sweeping the pillow fight four to
one. The '41 men captured the cane
rush seven to one.
The cane rush started the games
at 2 p.m. with eight picked freshmen
facing eight picked sophomores, each
couple gripping a cane. But only
one sophomore was able to hang on
to his cane long enough to present it
as a token of victory to Hugh Rader,
'38, president of the Men's Council
who directed the games.
Victors March Up State
In the pillow fight, five men from
each class mounted wooden horses
armed only with sawdust-filled pil-
low cases. After two minutes of pum-
meling four sophomores and one
freshman remained on their perches.
Well-smeared with green paint, the
victors marched up State St. shout-
ing "We beat '40." They stormed
through the Union, loudly proclaim-
ing their conquest of the sophomores.
Not satisfied with boasting their
might to the few radio-listeners in
the Union, they mounted the steps
to the tower and shouted their de-
rision at weary sophomores far below.

Farm Program

By New Taxes
Roosevelt Stresses Budget
Economy, Permanence
In Letter To Leaders
WASHINGTON, Oct. 23.-R)-
President Roosevelt wrote congres-
sional leaders today that any new
costs caused by the new farm program
should be covered "100 per cent by
additional receipts from new taxes."
That fact, plus studies being made
by agriculture department experts
for House and Senate committees,
pointed strongly to early efforts to-
ward reviving some of the processing
taxe's which went out with the old
Stresses Continuous Program
Mr. Roosevelt stressed that he
wanted a farm program that would
be continuous and permanent and
"It is especially important that any
new legislation should not unbalance
the expected balancing of the budget
In other words, no additional federal
expenditures from the general fund
of the treasury should be made over
and above existing planned expendi-
tures. The only exception to this
would be the incurring of additional
obligations on the part of the treas-
ury, backed 100 per cent by additional
receipts from new taxes.'

"The crisis at the present time is
too great to sit by without affirma-
tive action on the part of the Amer-
ican people," the former chief ex-
ecutive was reported to say by lead-
ers attending the session.
"The national crusade to save the
American people from the New Deal,"
the leaders said Hoover told them,
"must be fought on national ratherj
than local issues."

Michigan To Tax Local Sales
Made By Out -Of -State Firms

Michigan is trying to plug loopholes
in the sales tax by the new "use" tax
effective Oct. 29. It is an ingenious
taxing device, Prof. Robert S. Ford,
of the economics department, ex-
plained yesterday, as it is probably a
legal method for reaching those sales
which can not be touched now by the
retail sales tax.
The tax represents an effort to
place Michigan retailers on a parity
with out-of-state competitors, he said,
