29-20, At The Half
By BUD BENJAMIN
Michigars basketball team staged .
a first half offensive drive in their
opening game of the season last night
and withstood a second period Michi- ti
gan State rally to whip the surpris-
ing Spartans 43 to 40 before more
than 8,000 fans in the Yost Field .
The Wolverines shot to an early
lead and never were headed, but the
determined visitors, led by their
brilliant sophomore forward, Marty
Hutt, put on a scoring flurry in the
final seven minutes to give the Var-
sity an uneasy last period.
Varsity Leads At Half
Michigan led 29 to 20 at the half -
way mark but in the second frame
their offense bogged down and they
scored only three times from the
floor. The Wolverines' accuracy
from the foul line proved to be the
margin of victory as repeated Spar-
tan violations gave them ample op-
portunity to add needed points.
Michigan's all-conference captain
John Townsend led the Wolverine ( '
attack with four field goals and five , ;":
fouls for 13 points. Only Hutt, JOHN TOW
State's big scoring threat at all times,
bettered this. His contribution to,
the Spartan cause was seven field H ockey
goals and one foul for a very im- ~- " '
pressive 15 points in his second col- S
legiate contest. iSc re

Plans For Peace
Will Be Continued-
GENEVA, Dec. 12.-(Sunday)-()P)
Italy's withdrawal will jolt the League
of Nations but will not prove a knock-
out blow-such was the general view
expressed at Geneva today after
Premier Mussolini made his dramatic
but expected announcement.
Informed sources said Rome's ac-
tion should expedite the plan for re-
forms through which many countries
hope to make the League universal.
Mussolini has boycotted the league
ever since his invasion of Ethiopia and
Geneva sources regarded his with-
drawal as merely taking formal cog-
nizance of an existing fact.
"Italy is more honest in resign-
ing in view of her recent League boy-
cott," one newspaper said.
Italy's withdrawal cannot be ef-
fective for two -years because the
League covenant requires a prelim-
inar.y notice of resignation. That was
what Italy gave last night.
Germany and Japan both resigned
from the League because of the
League's attitude toward them-Ger-
many because of failure of the dis-
armament conference to grant her
equality of rights and Japan because
she was condemned for her invasion

__.._ _ .
More than 150 students will sell
Goodfellow Dailies for 10 hours to-
morrow, on campus and downtown, in
the third annual Goodfellow drive
to provide Christmas cheer and year
'round assistance to needy students,
families and hospital patients.
Campus honorary societies and
publications have again supplied the
recruits for the selling force to reach
the goal they have set at $1,800,
$150 more than was obtained last year
and $475 more than two years ago.
The fund was conceived as a single
drive in which all students might
combine their efforts to aid both needy
students and families, as well as hos-
vital patients. The distribution of
the funds is as follows:
1. The Social Service Department
of the University Hospital will receive
$150 to purchase toys, pictures, addi-
tional work shop facilities and bools
for underprivileged patients. These
needs are not met by state funds
available for medical and surgical
care for these patients.
2. Twenty-five per cent of the re-
maining funds will go to the Deans'
Discretionary Fund to help needy stu-
3. The rest of the money will be
sent to the local Family Welfare Bu-
reau to be used for the purchase of
Christmas baskets and clothes for Ann
Arbor families and for the year-round
work of the Bureau.
Progress has already been made
in the collection and pledging of con-
tributions by more than 75 fraterni-
ties, sororities, dormitories and league
houses. Those who have not already
made a pledge may do so by calling
the Goodfellow Editor any time today
after 2 p.m. Fraternities and soror-
ities calling today will have Goodfel-
low Dailies and tags delivered to them
before 8 a.m. tomorrow. The names
of houses pledging today will be found
in Tuesday's Daily.
The following fraternities, soror-
ities, dormitories and league houses
have already contributed to the Good-
fellow Fund or have pledged their con-
tribution and will receive their papers
and tags early tomorrow morning.
