Michigan Favored
To Beat Buckeyes
In Gridiron Finale

Nine Michigan Men Play
Last College Contest;
70,000_To See Game
Rain May Hamper
Wolverine Backs
COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 18.-(Special
to The Daily)-This town was agog
tonight as the local citizenry and a
huge influx of visiting fans excitedly
anticipated the 35th conflict between
those two arch rivals of the gridiron,
Michigan and Ohio State, in the Ohio
Stadium tomorrow.
Approximately 70,000 spectators will
jam the Buckeyes' spacious double
'deck stands to witness the Ohio
homecoming day special.sOf question-
able titlar significance, the impending
battle has nevertheless provoked tre-
mendous interest here and wild cele-
brations featured the pre-game fes-
Crowds Jam Streets
Broad and High streets were jam-
fried with wearers of the Scarlet and
Grey and the Maize and Blue. Hotels
cleared their lobbies of everything
but the bare necessities. Bars were
mobbed. Traffic was at a standstill.
Columbus was a town bedecked with
the colorful symbols of the old college
rah-rah tonight on the eve of the big
Betting was brisk with ample tak-
ers for both Sides. Michigan was a
slight favorite before game time al-
though odds were even and no points
were given.
Far removed from this hotbet of
football exuberance, the Michigan
squad encamped at Toledo tonight
after an afternoon bus ride from
Ann Arbor. They will entrain for
Columbus at 9 a.m. on a special train
which will take them directly to the
Stadium, arriving just bfore noon.
Ohio's squad also rested at some
hinterland camp.
All day rains in Columbus caused
some worry in the Wolverine camp
tonight as it was feared Michigan's
speedy set of backs might not be able
to get going on a soggy field.
Michigan Should Win
On paper Michiga holds a con-
siderable edge, but this 1938 Ohio
squad has proven as unpredictable as
the weather and their ability to rise to
surprising heights adds a spice and1
zest to the game.
To date Michigan has a better rec-
ord although the Conference books
give little edge to either team.-
The Wolverines have tied North-a
western; so has Ohio. They whipped
Chicago 45-7; Ohio massacred the
Maroons 42-7. The Buckeyes slam-
med Illinois 32-14; Michigan's best
effort resulted in a 14-0 victory. Ohio
State has lost to Purdue and South-
ern California, Michigan's 'lone de-
feat came at the hands of Minnesota.
The battle takes on a revenge angle
for Michigan. The Wolverines havec
failed to. score a point against Ohiol
State since 1933 when the admin-
istration of Coach Francis "Close The
Gates of Mercy" Schmidt began.
n the line, Michigan holds a de-
cided advantage, although State will
outweigh their opponents some 10
pounds to the man.
Ohio's flankers are Bill Lohr and
Esco Sarkinnen, who is probably as
good an end as Michigan will put on
the field, but they have no reserve
strength at this position while the
Wolverines do. Michigan's big four
of John Nicholson, Vince Valek, Dan
Smick and Ed Frutig give the visitors
the nod in end strength.
Ohio has two gargantuan tackles

Deans Rejeet
Holiday Plea
For 10 Years
It will be useless for students to
petition for a Thanksgiving vaca-
tion to include Friday and Saturday,
for the next ten years, a letter from
Dr. Frank E. Robbins,; assistant to
the President, revealed yesterday.
The University calendar up until
1948 has already been prepared and
approved by the University Council
and by the Board of Regents, Dr.
Robbins explained.
Dr. Robbins' reply to the petition
of the Student Senate Thanksgiving
Committtee was: "The Conference of
the President and Deans has already
'given consideration to the subject of
the petition and feels that in view
of the study of this matter which
was made by the Committee on Revi-
sion of the Calendar and by the Uni-
versity Council to which the Com-
mittee reported no further action is
needed at this time. The calendar for
the next ten years has been approved
both by the University Council and
the Board of Regents."

Broad Plans
Made In Last
CIO Meeting
Elect Lewis As President;
Murray, Hillman, Carey
Will Be New Officers
Lewis Sees Peace
With AFL Possible
PITTSBURGH, Pa., Nov. 18-(P)-
The New CIO emerged from the
cheering and celebration of its first
Constitutional Convention t o d a y
carrying a broad program for politi-
cal and economic action under the
leadership of its militant champion,
John 'L. Lewis, 58-year-old one-time
coal miner.
Winding up the five-day gathering,
the 519 delegates who set up the CIO
on a permanent basis as the Congress
of Industrial Organizations, swept
Lewis into the first presidency by
thunderous acclamation.
Elect Other Officers
Then with bands, horns and
whistles blaring the convention rolled
on to complete the new CIO by elect-
ing Philip Murray, another former
miner, and Sidney Hillman, ex-cloth-
ing worker, as vice-presidents, James
B. Carey as secretary, and 38 union
officials to sit with the officers of
CIO's executive board.
Sweeping through a mass of policy
committments, the delegates reaf-
firmed their stand for the organiza-
tion of the unskilled workers in the
mass production industries and called
on CIO leadership for an "unremit-
ting campaign throughout every i--
This coordination and the Consti-
tutional Convention, Lewis predicted
earlier, would be "the greatest step
possible" for peace with the A.F.L. by
placing the CIO on an equal footing.
Shifting its interest quickly from
domestic to international affairs, the
convention approved a resolution'call-
ing on the United States to strength-
en "democratic forces" in South and
Central American countries against
economic and political penetration
there of "the fascist empires, Ger-
many, Italy and Japan."
Responding to the acclaim that
carried him into the presidency, Lew-
is, who also heads the United Mine
Workers, largest of the 34 affiliated
unions, declared:
"This election marks my transition
from the role of an unscrupulous and
tyrannical dictator to the role of a
servant of a constitutional democ-
racy, a constitutional labor move-
ment-some change for a dictator!"
Ohio Dispute Settled;
Davey Gets His Salary
COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 18-oP)m

and Nov. 15 salary checks was satis-
fied today.

office staff said the Nov. 1 check was
certified Nov. 12-only after Davey
gave orders for payment of old-age
pensions-and the second went out
on schedule.

English Voters Indicate
Eden's Policy Favored
Over Prime Minister's
LONDON, Nov. 18-VP)---Britain
found evidence today in a by-election
and in addresses by two cabinet mem-
bers that Prime Minister Chamber-
lain's policy of appeasing Germany
had been set back by the German
campaign against Jews.
The Marquess of Zetlar. d, Secre-
tary of State for India, and Sir John
Simon, Chancellor of the Exchequer,
indicated that the appeasement plan
had been impaired.
Chamberlain's adherents w e r e
startled by the smashing "Popular
Front" defeat of a Government candi-
date for the House of Commons in
the Bridgewater constituency, tra-
ditionally a Conservative stronghold.
Some ascribed it to resentment of
the man-in-the-street over Ger-
many's anti-British press campaign
and the outburst of anti-Semitism.
The winner, Vernon Bartlett, an In-
dependent Progressive, had opposed
"the dangers of Prime Minister
Chamberlain's foreign policy."
Bartlett, 44-year-old foreign af-'
fairs wiiter and radio commentator,
defeated a Conservative, P. G. Heath-
This was the third Government
defeat in five by-elections since the
Four-Power accord at Munich.

Japan Scorns
'Open Door'
In East Asia
U.S. Powers Are Denied;
Term Nine Power Treaty
Of 1922 As Obsolete
China To Be Fused
With Manchukuo
TOKYO, Nov. ,18.--)-Japan de-
nied today point by point every
charge in an American note demand-
ing maintenance of the "Open Door"
in China and asserted that "ideas
and principles of the ,past" no longer
apply in China's "new situation."
This "new situation" results from
Japan's aim of an "Asia for Asiatics"
in which she would forge China into
a solid bloc with Manchoukuo and
the Japanese Empire for the political
and economic domination of East
Obsrvers interpreted the note as
an open declaration of Japan's inten-
tion to dictate the conditions under
which foreign business may continue
and foreigners may live henceforth in
It was taken as a sweeping state-
ment of policy not only to the United
States, but to the world generally
1. A new order, which Japan in-
tends to control entirely, exists in
China and pre-war conditions can-
not apply.
2. The "Open Door" will continue
only in economic fields of minor im-
Although the 1922 Nine-Power
Treaty for respect of China's terri-
torial integrity and independence
was not mentioned specifically, ob-
servers also held the statement sharp-
ly illuminated Japan's intention to
disregard the pact.
Japan's reply, answering assertions
in a protest Oct. 6 against"unwar-
ranted interference" with American
rights in China, had ben long de-
liberated despite the United States'
request for a prompt answer.
"In the face of the new situation
any attempt to apply to the condi-
tions of today and tomorrow to the
inapplicable ideas and principles of
the past neither would contribute to
the pace of East Asia nor solve the
immediate issues," the note said.
It frankly asserted that Japan was
engaged in establishing a new order
in East Asia and declared such a
project was "an indispensable condi-
tion of Japan's very existence."
Authoritative quarters expressed
belief that Japan's note was virtual
declaration that Tokyo considered in-
ternational agreements reached con-
cerning China after the World War,

Pe rs eution Of Minoritie

German Anti-Jewish Violence
Deplored By Faculty Members

Lack of available documents and
sources of information concerning the
new wave of anti-semitism in Ger-
many and its underlying motivations
has not prevented definite opinions on
the subject from being formed among
some members of the political science
faculty. In the chronicling of these
views, the Daily was requested to
omit the names of the authors of the
The concensus finds the word "in-
famous" the most adequate in charac-

The closing of universities and
schools to German-Jews was called
bigoted, -shortsighted and definitely
uncultured. This leaves much of the

had under the stringently super-

One explanation of the heavy taxes
imuosed recently is an attempt to

drained coffers of Germany many
times in the turbulent post war per-

acterized as "merely holding the man
for ransom." Religious persecution of
Catholics and Jews goes on unabat-
ed and with untold cruelty.
The advancement of the reason
that the tax is merely a penalty im-
pinged on the Jews in retaliation for
the murder of a German official in
France by an obscure Polish Jew, is
silly and even insulting to the minds
of the people of the world.
It appears, said one member of the
