BRUSSELS, Nov. 9.-UP)-Foreign
Minister Maxim Litvinoff of Russia
created a sensation in the Brussels

his immediate departure for Moscow.
The abrupt manner of the Russian
delegate's leaving was regarded as a

particularly from conference commit-

Unofficial reports said Litvinoff had
received suggestions from conference

Viet.
Prior to Litvinoff's action, Dr. V. K.
Wellington Koo, China's representa-
tive here, said China would preserve
her friendship with Soviet Russia and
would not renounce it to join any
group of powers dominated by a par-
ticular philosophy.
His statement was interpreted as
China's reply to reports from Berlin
that a more satisfactory peace be-
tween China and Japan might be
achieved if China were to adhere to
the Italo-German-Japanese anti-i
Comintern pact.

By IRVIN LISAGOR
(Daily Sports Editor)
Rumors to the effect that "certain
students" of the University of Michi-
gan were receiving athletic subsidies
from Cleveland and Chicago alumni
groups will be investigated by the
Board in Control of Physical Educa-
tion, according to a signed statement
issued yesterday by Prof. Ralph W.
Aigler, the board chairman.
The statement clearly confined the
rumors to men who are not now eli-
gible for intercollegiate athletics. It
involves freshmen on the campus last
year, who were forced to leave school
because of scholastic deficiencies, and
certain first-year students present
here now whose eligibility, as is cus-
tomary, will not be determined until
the first semester of their sophomore
year.
Source Not Divulged
Prof. Aigler would not divulge the
source of the rumors last night, other
than to say, "They came to my at-
tention during the past two weeks."
Neither would he divulge the nature
of the investigation. His only com-
ment was, "The statement speaks for

itself."
The statement follows:
The members of the Board in Con-
trol of Physical Education have be-
come acquainted with the rumors
that certain students who have been
or are in the University as probable
candidates for intercollegiate ath-
letic teams were or are subsidized con-
trary to Conference Rules and Regu-
lations. It should be stated empha-
tically, however, that these rumors
affect no one whose eligibility has
been declared by the Board, or who
has presented himself to the Board
as a candidate for any team.
Only Freshmen Affected
Certain men against whom these
rumors and charges apply, freshmen
on the campus last year, have been
dropped from the University, never
having become academically eligible
for consideration as a member of 4ny
athletic team. The other men affected
by these rumors are now freshmen,
whose eligibility of course would not
be considered until they have. been
in residence one full year and have
completed satisfactorily one full year
of college work and have then pre-
sented themselves as candidates for
a team.
Ordinarily a candidate for an ath-
letic team is not declared ineligible,
at least so far as improper subsidi-
zation is concerned, unless reasonably
definite proof is at hand to support
the charge. The Board, however, in
case of strong suspicion based upon
evidence indicative of the probability
of such improper subsidization may
reverse the usual order and upon pre-
sntation declare a candidate ineli-
gible subject to his furnishing satis-
factory evidence that his support
is of the character permitted by the
Conference rules.
Will Not Permit Violations
The Board takes this occasion to
announce that it will not hesitate to
employ this machinery. One thing
the Board will not permit is the vio-
lation of the standards declared by
the group to which Michigan belongs,
which standards Michigan's repre-
sentatives helped to formulate. The
Board will, moreover, exert every ef-
fort to determine whether the rumors
referred to at the beginning are sub-
stantiated, and if so, to fix the re-
sponsibility.
