Butler Defeats
Quintet 38-35
For Varsity's
Initial Setback
Bulldogs Foil Michigan's
Defense By Sinking 12
Long Shots In Hoop
Townsend Stopped
As Fishman Stars
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Jan. 3.-
(Special to The Michigan Daily)-
With 9,500 Hoosiers back at Jake
Townsend's old stamping grounds,
Butler Field House, to see Michigan's
modernistic pivot man again, Butler's
bulldogs stole the show as they poured
in 12 long shots to down the Varsity
38 to 35 tonight.
It was the Wolverines first defeat
in seven starts.
With Michigan's defense making
any under-the-basket breaks impos-
sible, Butler resorted to long shots
and couldn't miss the hoop. Little
Jerry Steiner and a surprising substi-
tute Willie Fawcett, dropped in 10
field goals between them and ball-
hawked the rest of the time.
Fishiman Stars
Meanwhile Herm Fishman was peg-
ging them in with one hand as the
entire Butler defense mobbed the
home-coming Townsend whose circus
passes were smothered. It was an
old story to the crowd, however, which
had seen Fawcett do the same thing
against Big Jake in the state high
school tourney in the same field house
in 1934.
Michigan was definitely cool while
the concensus of opinion " was that
Butler was way over its head. The
front line was not hitting and only
Fishmnan c~tld find the range from
the field. But it must also be men-
tioned that the Bulldog defense had
the Varsity shooting many of its shots
off balance.
Jake Feeds Ball
The game opened with Jake feeding]
the 'ball to Ed "Thomas as -usual"
and then hooking one for himself. But
then Perry put one pver Townsend's
head and the score evened itself out
with Michigan pulling ahead 15 to 9
with a minute and a half to go in
the first half. 'Then Tony Hinkle's
boys warmed up and dropped in three
longs to go ahead at half time 16to
The Varsity looked like it had just
been kidding as the second period
opened and worked another six point
breach but Steiner and Fawcett got
hot again and put the Bulldogs ahead.
The long shots and the new jump
elimination kept Michigan from
catching up. If they had scored in
the last two minutes the new rules
would have given the ball to Butler.

University health authorities yes-
terday urged two persons, one of
whom is believed to be a student, who
were reported to have been bitten by
a mad dog Dec. 18, at the beginning
of Christmas Vacation, to submit im-
mediately to the Pasteur anti-rabies
treatment or possibly suffer death as
a consequence.
Seven other people, whom the dog
also attacked, have already reported
for the treatment.
One of the unidentified victims is
a youth, who was bitten in the Union
and the other is a Negro girl, 16 or
17 years old, who was attacked by
the dog later the same day in front
of the University Museums Building.
Dr. John A. Wessinger, city health
officer, said yesterday that the safe
limit for beginning Pasteur treat-
ment is 15 days, although a bite on
the leg. or foot can usually be cured
if treatments are begun within a
few weeks.
The seven other persons who were
reported to have been bitten by the
dog are MisshMargaret Steere, an as-
sistant in the geology department;

a total construction cost of $146,917,-
In three other actions affecting
utilities, the Court:
1. Reversed by a 6 to 2 vote, a Cal-

ing a rate-making order of the State
Raihoad Commission. The Tribunal
sent the case back to the power court
to determine whether the rates were
confiscatory. In this case the Gov-
ernment had asked the Justices to
reverse previous decisions and held
that utilities should be valued for
rate-making purposes on the basis
of "prudent investment," without
consideration of reproduction costs.
2. Returned to the Southern In-,

Ford Requests
Labor Decision
DETROIT, Jan. 3.-P)-The Ford
Motor Co. asked the National Labor
Relations Board today to vacate its
recent decision that the company vio-
lated the Wagner Labor Relations Act
and the board announced it would
defer court action against the com-
pany while considering the petition
for a new hearing.
The 14-page petition, filed with the
labor board in Washington, said the
company had been "denied a fair
hearing both within the meaning of
the statute and in violation of the
fifth amendment to the Constitution
of the United States."
It said evidence would be offered at
a re-hearing to disprove the anti-
union activities charged to the com-
pany in the decision, or justify them
in the light of the "history of the
The Labor Board gave no indication
as to when it would act upon the
petition. Should the re-hearing be
denied, the board's next move would
be to apply to the United States Cir-
cuit Court pf Appeals for an enforce-
ment order.
The Ford petition charges the
Labor Board with "failure to take
into account" the "epidemic" of sit-
down strikes in Michigan last year in
which "industrial plants were seized
by force . . . their production sus-
pended. . . men wishing to work were
forcibly restrained from doing so and
even forcibly restrained from leaving
the seized plants."

tionalist premier Mustapha Nahas
The rebellious deputies cried down

chamber, when he attempted to read
a message from King Farouk sus-
pending parliament for one month.
Behind barred doors they voted
against the government 180 to 17
while Maher shouted the session was
At the same time the Senate quiet-
ly voted its lack of confidence in the
new government of Premier Mohamed
Mahmoud, 83 to 4.
After the vote the deputies trooped
out of the parliament buildings
through hundreds of foot and mount-
ed police to the nearby club of the
nationalist Wafdist political party.
There Nahas called for the Mah-
moud government to resign and de-
clared the King had failed in his
attempt to suspend parliament. The
suspension was to have cleared the
way for new elections by which the
King hoped to overthrow the Waf-
dist parliamentary majority.
Many of the deputies were armed

with heavy sticks. The stormy ses-
sion went on in darkness under Vice-
President Abdel Hadi.
Maher stood by his side vainly
shouting the session was outlawed.
The quarrel between Egypt's 18-
year-old King and Nahas developed
early last fall when Farouk attempted
to increase his influence in the gov-
ernment and demanded the blue-
shirted Wafdist Youth Organizattion
be disbanded.

New Congress,
Appealed To
To Crush Bad

In Drive

Tense World Noted;
Deficit Is Probable
WASHINGTON, Jan. 3.-(P)-Pres-
ident Roosevelt asked the newly con-
vened Congress today for legislation
to end "harmful" business practices,
and appealed to business itself to
help in the stamping out.
In a personally delivered message
broadcast to almost the entire world
he promised business that if it would
cooperate with government in this
way, it could count upon government
to cooperate with it "in every way."
After the recent, vehement attacks
upon some sections of the business
community by high Administration
advisors, the President's address was
generally regarded in Congress as un-
expectedly conciliatory.
Deficit Remains
Otherwise, today's message:
Noted a troubled and tense world
situation which he said made it.
necessary that the nation be "ade-
quately strong in self-defense."
Reported that the budget which
would be submitted this week for
the next fiscal year would not show
a balance between income and out-
go but would reveal "a further de-
crease in the deficit."
Called for wage and hour legisla-
tion as "a problem which is definitely
before this Congress for action."
Expressed the hope that conference
committees working out a crop con-
trol bill would confine the cost to
what is now being paid for that pur-
pose-$500,000,000 annually.
And, proferred advice on the writ-
ing of a tax bill: No decrease in the
total revenues to be collected, a
watchfulness against opportunities
for tax evasion, and a "change" in
provisions which have been "proven
to workd a definite hardship."
But, in view of the suspense that
has been created by the speeches of
Robert H. Jackson, the Assistant At-
torney General, and Secretary Harold
Ickes, accusing big business of going
"on strike" against the government
in an effort to free itself of all re-
strictions, Mr. Roosevelt's words on
this phase had been eagerly awaited.
He said:
"The objective of increasing the
purchasing power of the farming
third, the industrial third and.the
service third of our population pre-
supposes the cooperation of what
we call capital and labor.
Minority Is Responsible
"Capital is essential; reasonable
earnings on capital are essential; but
misuse of the powers of capital or
selfish suspension of the employment
of capital (his nearest approach to
Jackson's and Ickes' charge of a
strike) must be ended or the cap-
italistic system will destroy itself
through its own abuses."
He said the majority of business-
men and bankers "intend to be good
citizens," that the practices of which
he spoke were confined to a minority.
"But unfortunately for the coun-
try," he said, "when attention is
called to, or attack is made on spe-
cific misuses of capital, there has
been a deliberate purpose on the part
of the condemned minority to dis-
tort the criticism into an attack on
all capital. This is wilful deception,
but it does not long deceive.
"If attention is called to, or attack
made on, certain wrongful business
practices, there are those who are
eager to call it "an attack on all bus-
iness." That, too, is willful deception
that will not long deceive.
On World Affairs
President Roosevelt told Congress
that autocratic governments were to
blame mainly for existing threats to
"stable civilization," and that it had
become the responsibility of peace-
loving nations to be strong.
In what seemed to his hearers to

be a reference to the Japanese bomb-
ing of the American gunboat Panay,
he reported the United States "has
been kept at peace despite provoca-
tions which in other days, because of
their seriousness, could well have en-
gendered war."
Uncertainty that other nations
would observe the letter and spirit
of treaties made it imnpratiu thea
