Sanctions
3 Scandinavian Nations
Do Not Vote; May Join
Italy And Bolt Parley
Nanking In Danger
As Thousands Flee
While-15 nations prepared yester-
day to consider sanctions against
Japan as a means to end the war in
the Far East, Italy was expected to
bolt the Brussels Conference.
Only Italy voted "no" and three
Scandinavian . countries abstained
from voting on the resolution which
condemned Japan for her action in
China and her refusal to cooperate
with the conference.
All four indicated they might not
participate in the next session set for
Nov. 22, when delegates expect a
discussion of positive help for China
and perhaps the withholding of
credits and war supplies from Japan
-virtual sanctions.
The condemnatory declaration was
framed by the United States, British
and French delegations and was a
modification of the draft which re-
ceived first reading by the Confer-
ence Saturday.
A great exodus from Nanking,
China's capital, meanwhile, was
under way today as the Chinese de-
fense system between Shanghai and
Nanking threatened to break under
the savage thrusts of Japan's legions.
The government ordered all war
wounded removed into the interior
from Nanking, which has been the
center of the army hospital system.
By highways, rivers and canals the
civilian population was leaving Nan-
king by thousands, spurred by reports
of terrible destruction inflicted on
Soochow by Japanese bombing planes.
The normal population of Nanking is
over 1,000,000.
Seven hundred bombs within 30
hours were said to have made a sham-
bles of Soochow, city of 260,000 some
50 miles west of Shanghai, keypoint
in China's "Hindenburg Line," for-
merly one of the country's most pic-
turesque and prosperous cities.
Governmentrofficials remained in
Nanking. The government announced
determination to uefend it to the
last. This raised fears Nanking would
suffer punishment similar to that of
Soochow.
Vanguards of the Japanese armies,
heavily reinforced by newly arrived
troops, were reported within 12 miles
of Soochow, having swept westward
after the capture of Kunshan, 20
miles east of Soochow.
Japanese lines still were some 125
to 150 miles southeast of Nanking, but
foreign military observers predicted
they could reach the Chinese capital
by mid-December.

Gargoyle's Picture
Of Gorgeous Legs1
Thieves broke into the Gargoyle,
office yesterday and stole a picturej
of Jane Nussbaum's legs, which was!
to be used in the Nov. 23 issue, a
nameless Gargoyle publicity director
told bored reporters yesterday.
"Unless they are recovered im-
mediately we will have to remake the,
dummy," he said.
Besides the picture, a window was
reported taken. Investigation which
revealed repairmen were putting a ]
new pane into the window at their
workshop brought sneers from the
publicity man.
"It was stolen," he reiterated.
Last year a Gargoyle issue was
stolen and recovered just before it
was to go on sale. Gargoyle said
that wasn't a publicity stunt either.
"Anyway," Gargoyle editor George
Quick said,"They can steal the Gar-
goyles and windows if they want to,
but they can't steal our picture of
Jane's legs."

fully produced indoors tonight as it{
was in an outdoor presentation last
summer, Prof. H. T. Price of the Eng-f
lish department declared in an inter-
view yesterday.
An augmented paraphrase of the
first published comedy in Western
literature by Mr. Harold Whitehall,1
also of the English department, theI
play has been transformed from a1
medieval French farce into a species'
of Elizabethan comedy. Professor
Price believes that the outdoor pres-
entation he saw last summer of Mr.
Whitehall's version managed to cap-]
ture some of the elusive and indefin-
able Elizabethan spirit, in both its
subtlety of characterization and dia-
logue. and the comedy inherent in its
situation.I
Slated for presentation tomorrow
and Thursday evenings at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre, the play is the
first effort this season of the Hamp-
stead Players, an amateur group of
actors which draws from both faculty
members and townspeople for its
company. Truman Smith, Grad., has
directed the production and Alice
Whitehall has served as production
manager. Incidental music will be
supplied by Grace Johnson Konoid,
soprano, Helen Snyder, accompanist
and the Hampstead String Quartette.

Eastern Colleges
Buy West's Star
Pupils, Deans Say
FLINT, Nov. 15.- IP)-Two Univer-
sity of Michigan deans attributed a
form of subsidizing tonight to eastern
colleges-for "star students," not star
athletes.
Speaking before the University of'
Michigan club,nan alumniorganiza-
tion, Dean Henry M. Bates of the
College of Law said. Yale, Harvard
and Columbia enroll the Midwest's,
best high school scholars through
scholarships.
Dean E. H. Kraus of the College
of Science, Literature and the Arts,
corroborating Dean Bates' statement,
said Yale alone has more than $250,-
000 available for scholarships and fel-
lowships.
Dean H. C. Anderson of the College
of Engineering, who is a member of.
the Board in Control of Athletics,
briefly discussed the University's cur-
rent investigation of rumors thatf
freshman athletes are being subsi-
dized. The investigation, he said,
was based entirely on rumors and
begun at this time to ward off any
later misleading report.

Alumni Protest,
Charges Made
Against Harmon
Gary Organization Sends
Local Board Statement
To Check Insinuations
By TOM PHARES
In direct protest of "the thinly
veiled innuendoes and implications"
directed at the Chicago Alumni or-
ganization and 'charges directed at
Tom Harmon, star freshman gridder.
from Gary, Ind., the University of
Michigan Club of Gary has filed a
formal statement of objection with
the local Board in Control of Ath-
letics.
With the release of the subsidiza-
tion investigation statement last week
by the Michigan Board and the con-
sequent national publicity given the
entire matter by the nationwide press
services, the Gary alumni hastened
to adopt a resolution which explained
the true status of all concerned.
"The University of Michigan Club
of Gary, Indiana, not unlike other
similar bodies throughout the United
States, did use its influence to prevail
upon Tom Harmon and other Gary
boys to matriculate at Michigan. We

Wire Signed By Bill Bevan
Calls Michigan 'Simon
Pure' Institution
MSC Is Revealed
As Making Offer
By IRVIN LISAGOR
(Copyright, 1937, By The Michigan Daily)
Openly flaunting investigations of
Michigan's rumored subsidization of
athletes, a representative of Tulane
University has reiterated an "offer"
made to Tom Harmon, - brilliant
freshman back enrolled here, ac-
cording to a telegram released ex-
clusively to The Michigan Daily last
night.
The wire was signed by Bill Bevan,
former All-American guard at Min-
nesota and present line coach at the
southern school, and was evidently
prompted by Michigan's athletic
board's recent statement to the ef-
fect that certain freshman gridders
were under suspicion of being sub-
sidized by alumni groups.
Harmon, a graduate of the Horace
Mann high school in Gary, Ind;, was
one of the freshmen which campus
Editorial comment on the offer

Lines on the sports page,
gossipers associated with the rumors.
By virtue of'his enviable record as a
prep star, he was the recipient of
bids from more than a score of
universities located in every corner
of the nation.
Labelling Michigan a "simon pure
school," Bevan's wire suggested that
Harmon may be completely exon-
erated .of the charges leveled at him
by covert whisperers. The Gary youth
has been vehement in his denials of
aid, pecuniary or otherwise, since
the rumors received official cogni-
zance by the athletic board Nov. 10.
He admitted being encouraged to en-
ter Michigan by his high school
coach, Douglas Kerr, a former Wol-
verine athlete, and alumni in Gary
whose only overtures consisted of a
lecture on the educational advan-
tages of the local institution.
Supporting Harmon, the Michigan
alumni of Gary forwarded a pre-
pared statement to the University's
athletic board, which stated, as evi-
dence, that they merely influenced
the youth's' action by extolling the
school's virtues. Moreover, they as-
serted that his means were derived
wholly from his parents.
