Bill Is Voted Down
By House, 209-188'

Proposal Would Provide
For Nation-Wide Poll
On Declaration OfSWar



WASHINGTON, Jan. 10.-011)-The
proposed Ludlow amendment requir-
ing a popular vote before a declara-
tion of war met defeat today when
the House refused, 209 to 188, to take
it out of a committee pigeonhole.
Jubilant administration men, who
conducted an almost unprecedented
fight to keep the measure from the
floor, declared the vote killed it, at
least for 1938.
Before the vote President Roosevelt
wrote Speaker Bankhead declaring
the amendment "would encourage
other nations to believe that they
could violate American rights with
Administration Pleased
Tonight State Department officials
privately expressed gratification at
the House's action, taking the posi-
tion that it facilitated, the executive
branch's conduct of'foreign .affairs.
The national council for prevention
of war declared the fight for the
amendment had just begun, adding:
"The exhibition today of presiden-
tial control of Congress in peace-time
shows clearly that Congress cannot
be counted upon to check the Admin-
istration in any war crisis. It is a
clear argument for the necessity of
giving the people themselves the right
to ,vote on war issues."
The proposed amendment was of-
fered by Rep. Ludlow (Dem., Ind.)
three years ago. To become effective
it would require a two-thirds vote
of each branch of Congress and ap-
proval by three-fourths of the states.
After it had long been bottled up in
the House Judiciary Committee, its
backers succeeded recently in getting
218 names on a petition asking that
the committee be relieved of it. The
petition forced today's vote.
Roosevelt Letter Read
Making one of his rare speeches
today, Speaker Bankhead read Mr.
Roosevelt's letter, which said the
amendment would "cripple any pres-
ident in his conduct of our foreign
Recalling that sponsors believed
it would help keep the United States
out of war, the President said he was

The tally showed that 21 Repub-
licans joined 188 Democrats to defeat
the move. One-hundred and eleven
Democrats, 64 Republicans, 8 Progres-
sives and 5 Farmer-Laborites voted'
for the resolution.

Ludlow's Plan
.For War Vote
Held Unsound
The Ludlow War Referendum Bill
is right in theory but entirely impos-
sible in practice, according to Prof.
Preston W. Slosson, of the history de-
"The first objection to the Ludlow
Resolution is that it concerns declara-
tion of war, a point which is no longer
important," Professor Slosson said.
"Modern wars are as a rule not de-
clared. They begin with an action on
the part of some nation rather than
with a legislative enactment."
The formal declaration of war is
merely a legal question having little
significance, he stated. Whether or
not an executive could legally declare
war, he might bring about a state of
war and the declaration in such a sit-
uation would be an insignificant
matter. As an example, Professor
Slosson cites the present war in the
Far East which has not yet been for-
mally acknowledged.
A further objection to the Ludlow
Resolution is the time element, ac-,
cording to Professor Slosson. He said
that the threat of war may be con-
centrated into a few days or hours,
as in the case of the World War. It
would be physically impossible, he,
said, to carry on a campaign of in-
formation, conduct an election, count1
the votes, act on the results and be,
sure the situation had not changed
during this time.
Proponents of the resolution argue;
that a referendum could be taken and
the results known within 48 hours.-
Professor Slosson considers this to be
a physical impossibility; he points
out that the ballots from a presiden-
tial - election .have never all been
counted within that time.

High - Riding Wolverines
Outlast Tough Buckeyes
In Hard-Fought Contest
But The Officiating
'Birings Down House'
(Daily Sports Editor)
Michigan's high-riding, title-con-
tending Wolverines achieved their
second Conference cage triumph in
Yost Field House last night by out-
lasting the bruising Ohio State Buck-
eyes, 38-28. But it was the officiating
that really brought down the house.
Apparently negligent in their du-
ties, Referee Nick Kearns and Um-
pire John Schommer met continually
with cascades of verbal disapproval-
or booing, as the sporting set de-
scribes it- by an excited audience.
Schommer slapped a technical foul
on the Wolverines early in the fracas
for the crowd's concerted criticism
of an out-of-bound ruling, and then
proceeded to ignore obvious rough-
house tactics on the part of the visit-
ing Buckeyes.
Townsend Is Mauled
Capt. Jake Townsend, who was re-
strained all evening by the leech-like
guarding of Jim McDonald, Buckeye
guard and captain, showed visible evi-
dence in the locker room after the
game, of the mauling and 'clawing he
received. His arms were scratched to
a raw red.
Although Jake was scotched by
McDonald's sly technique, and man-
aged to tally only nine points, his
pivot mate, Jim "Stretch" Rae, was
chalking up 11 points, while Herm
Fishman, regaining a sharpness he
lacked ir. the Illinois game Saturday,
plopped through 10 markers to keep

Playing hard, almost viciously,
Ohio State',; scarlet-jerseyed dribblers
dominated Michigan in the first pe-
riod and led 20-18 at halftime. They
wrested the ball away under both bas-
kets, and flung the ball from any and
all angles. Especially audacious were
Jim Hull and Bob Lynch, both of
whom emulated Bill Haarlow, the old
Chicago star, in their one-handed,
over-headed corner shots.
Rae Steps Forward
While McDonald stymied Townsend's
style with his wily guarding, permit-
ting big Jake only one basket in the
first half, Rae and Fishman assumed
the scoring burden. The lanky soph-
omore center got three buckets and
two fouls, while the pudgy little guard
parted the mesh thrice. Even Jake's
play-making game was mussed up.
Michigan resorted to a different
set-up at the start of the second
half, Rae replacing Jake at the pivot
post as the able captain moved out.
The game became a veritable rough-
house at this stage, and probably to
save his ace's scalp, Coach Cappon
sent in Dan Smick to relieve him.
With only a one-point lead, 25-24,
