MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 15.--()-The{
University of Michigan basketballj
team remained undefeated in the
Western Conference tonight, when it
beat Minnesota, 31 to 16.
The Wolverine squad entrained im-
mediately after the game bound for
Madison, Wis., and another game
Monday night with the Badgers who
lost tonight to Purdue.
The Wolverines, in marking up
their third straight triumph of the
campaign, were behind by 13 to 11
at the half but came back with a
strong defensive game that held the
Gophers without a point until only,
three minutes of the second half re-

PARIS, Jan. 15.-(A)-The People's

The Socialist group in the Cham-
ber of Deputies voted unanimously to
refuse to participate in or support a
Bonnet cabinet after the Radical So-
cialist Premier-designate offered So-
cialist posts in his prospective min-
Bonnet made the offer in an in-
terview with Deputy Albert Serol,
chairman of the Chamber Socialists,
who immediately communicated with
the group. The vote followed.
The Premier-designate announced
that he was awaiting a formal letter
from the Socialist party confirming
this stand before taking another step.
The former Ambassador to Wash-
ington formally accepted President
Albert Lebrun's cabinet mandate af-
ter a day of political jockeying to
find a successor to Camille Chau-
Bonnet's own party, the Radical-
Socialists, approved his assumption
of the task provided he form another,
front government. Communists, So-
cialists and the more conservative
Radical-Socialists composed the Peo-
ple's Front.
Shortly before Bonnet went to the
Elysee Palace to accept, the Social-
ists had expressed opposition to a
Radical-Socialist Premier and the
Communists took a similar stand,
calling for a meeting of all People's
Front Deputies to consider the crisis.
The General Confederation of La-i
bor added its weight to keeping the
three left-wing parties in line by
proclaiming that "it is necessary to
keep the People's Front intact."
Though Bonnet accepted the cab-
inet task, the situation was still con-
fused by refusal of Socialist Leon
Blum, chief of the first People's Front
government, to support Bonnet's pro-
gram for a conservative solution of
pressing labor and financial problems.
With their Communist allies the
Socialists have demanded a controlled
foreign exchange as partial solution
of monetary difficulties.

Gophers Lose Third
While the defense was taking care
of the fast breaking Gopher for-
wards, Leo Beebe, John Townsend
and Jim Rae handled the offensive
maneuvers to give the visitors a well
deserved victory.
The height of the Wolverines, espe-
cially under the backboards, was one
of the deciding factors while the Go-
phers' inability to connect from the
free throw line was another.
It was Minnesota's third straight
Conference loss.
Townsend, all-Conference forward
the past two years and tied for run-
ner-up honors in individual scoring,
counted 12 points to be high scorer
of the game.
He personally put the Wolverines
ahead 6 to 0 with eight minutes gone
and it was eleven minutes before the
Gophers connected with a field goal
to make the score 8 to 3.
Kundla Scores Four
Then Johnny Kundla, lagging be-
hind on a fast break, broke free for
four consecutive short shots before
he was bottled up, but by that time
the score was 11 to 9 for the Gophers
and five minutes remaining.
Roelke and Townsend counted the-
remaining points and the Gophers
left the floor with a 13 to 11 ad-
vantage at the half.
Beebe came out strong in the sec-
ond half with three straight short
shots to pile up a 17 to 13 lead, and
then the Gophers became demoralized
and Michigan found little trouble in
sending their tall men into the scor-
ing center for short shots.

Bates Calls It Admirable;
Dorr Finds Senate Vote
Factor In Appointment
Calm approval of the nation will
greet the appointment of Solicitor-
General Stanley Forman Reed, to ti
Supreme Court vacancy created by
the retirement of Justice George
Sutherland, if a sampling of the opin-
ions of the Law School and political
science faculty taken here last night
is any guide.
Although opinions varied from en-
thusiastic approbation to admittance
that the appointment is about as good
as any that could have received the
confirmation of the Senate, most of
the faculty members contacted mere-
ly expressed quiet satisfaction. No
one could be found who disapproved
of the choice.
Among the comments made were
Dean Henry M. Bates of the Law
School: "It is an admirable appoint-
ment. Reed is as good a man as
could have been chosen. He is a pro-
gressive, yet not an extremist."
Prof. Jesse S. Reeves of the po-
litical science department: "It is the
best appointment that could have
been made. Reed's professional
equipment, attitude and character
are all satisfactory. His record, both
in private life and as a public servant,
indicates that he is the man for the
Prof. Harold M. Dorr of the po-
litical science department: "It is as
good an appointment as could have
been made under the situation-that
is under the necessity of securing the
confirmation of the Senate."
Other comments from members of
the law faculty were: Prof. Ralph
Aigler-"I have heard good things
about him. He is an outstanding man
of good ability professionally. One
thing is sure: it is a better appoint-
ment than the last (the appointment

Roswell Magill, treasury undersec-I

Ways and Means Committee at in-

mittee's recommendations for chang-
ing the tax system.
He said additional revision might'
touch on such matters as:
Personal tax exemptions, repeal of
all "temporary" manufacturers' excise
taxes, tightening the relationship be-
tween federal and state taxes, and
taxing interest on future issues of
federal, state and municipal securi-

Nominee Defended
New Deal In Court
WASHINGTON, Jan. 15.-(A")--A
clear majority of administration sup-
porters on the Supreme Court ap-
peared assured today when President
Roosevelt nominated Solicitor Gen-
eral Stanley Reed, a veteran defender
of New Deal enactments, to succeed
retiring Justice George Sutherland.
Senators, who mist pass upon the
nomination, generally applauded the
selection of the Kentucky lawyer.
Even some bitter foes of the Presi-
dent's defeated bill to reorganize
the high tribunal joined in expressing
But there were numerous demands
that public hearings be conducted be-
fore the Senate votes on the ap-
Senate Approval Seen
It was apparent that the nomina-
tion had a better chance of being con-
firmed quickly than if it had involved
the name of someone whose known
views were more radical than Reed's.
Senator Burke (Dem., Neb.), a
leader in the fight against the Court
Bill, told reporters:
"I would place Mr. Reed in the
same place I place myself-a progres-
sive-conservative. He has all the
qualifications to make an outstand-
ing judge."
The 53-year-old nominee has de-
fended administration measures
forcefully before the Supreme Court,
first as counsel for the Reconstruc-
tion Finance Corporation and later as
Solicitor General.
Administration men count on the
nomination to assure Roosevelt meas-
ures generally the support of at least
five of the Court's nine members in
the future.
Sutherland Returns Tuesday
Justice Sutherland, a member of
the court group which has voted most
often against the New Deal, has an-
nounced his retirement, effective
Tuesday. If confirmed, Reed could
take his place on the Court imme-
diately after that.
Since Justice Cardozo is gravely ill
of a heart ailment, some persons in
the Capital believe he also will retire
shortly and that the President thus
will have an opportunity to make a
third appointment.
Reed, a Democrat, never has held a
judicial position. He has practiced
law for many years; first privately in
Kentucky and in the Federal service
since 1929, when Herbert Hoover ap-
pointed him counsel for the Farm
