eradicate all possible traces of Jewry
from national life today amid swift
financial, religious and international
Protestant churches in some parts
of the country were ordered to elimi-
nate the German word "Jehova,"
taken from the Hebrew for God, and
Old Testament names of Jewish
Wealthy Jews in Nuernberg, ac-
cording to advices received in Mun-
ich, were for ed to sign over 90 per'
cent of their possessions to the Ger-
man Labor Front and then told to
leave the city within three months.
A mass eviction of Jews was report-
ed in Vienna. In Berlin thousands
clamored in vain for permission to
leave while officials debated ways
and means of letting them go.
Lay teachers of religion in public
schools asked that pastors and priests
assume such instruction. They ex-
plained no German teacher could in-
terest Nordic pupils in "Jew-written
psalms" and Old Testament history.
Propaganda Minister Paul Joseph
Goebbels declared :n an address at
Reichenberg, Sudetenland, that Ger-
many wished the world to become "so
pro-Jewish that it would take our
Jews off our hands."
A group of thirty Jewish men were
driven across the new German-Czech-
oslovak boundary near Taus by a
German military patrol and threat-
ened with death if they returned to
Germany. They were held by Czecho-
slovak police.

American relations suffered a severe
Justice Louis D. Brandeis, deeply
stirred by the latest outburst ofdanti-
Semitic measures in the Reich, called
to confer with President Roosevelt
on the best means of bringing relief
to panic-stricken refugees.
The President talked also during
the day with Ambassador William
Phillips, American envoy to Italy,
where repressive measures against
the Jews are utnder way, and with
Sir Ronald Lindsay, the British Am-
bassador. The Jewish resettleient
problem was believed widely to have
been the subject discussed during Sir
Ronald's unannounced visit to the
White House.
French Government Silent
As Anti-Semitism Grows
PARIS, Nov. 19.- -(>)-An anti-
Jewish current in France continues
while voices are raised in protest
against the Government's silence on
the German Jewish issue.
Anti-Semitism was brought to the

surface by extreme Nationalists when
Jewish Leon Blum became Premier
two years ago, and has been grow-
ing apace especially in regions near
the German frontier.
In the new attention focused on
the question by the slaying of Ernst
Vom Rath, German diplomat, by a
young Polish Jew, certain news-
papers again have attacked the So-
cialist ex-Premier, calling him a "for-

French for generations.

Michigan Ties For Second
As Minnesota Ekes Out
Big Ten Title Once More
Harmon, Trosko
And Frutig Score
COLUMBUS, Ohio,. Nov. 19.-
Michigan closed its most successful
football season since 1933 today in the
Ohio Stadium by smashing a bulky
but immobile Ohio State eleven 18 to
0 before 67,554 homecoming day spec-
Striking twice over the ground and
once through ,the air, the Wolverines
outmaneuvered and outfought the big
Buckeyes throughout the game to
register their sixth triumph of this
comeback season.
Michigan's victory over Ohio State,
coupled with Wisconsin's loss to
Minnesota, enabled the Wolverines to
finish in a second-place tie in the
Big Ten with Purdue, who beat In-
diana. Northwestern ended up in'
fourth place, O.S.U. and Wisconsin
tied for fifth, Illinois was seventh,
Iowa eighth, Indiana ninth and Chi-
cago tenth.
Today's triumph gave Michigan its
first victory over an Ohio State team
in five years. It was the first time
that a Michigan team had scored
Against a Schmidt-coached eleven.
Ohio Threatens Once
Only in the opening minutes of
the first quarter did Ohio threaten,
but their march stalled on the Michi-
gan 20, which proved to be their fur-
thest pointt of aggression through-
out the afternoon.
A typically wild Ohio State lateral,
formerly Schmidt's most potent
weapon opened the way to Michigan's
first score. It was Ohio's ball on
their own 20 after a Michigan threat
had another chance when a Buckeye
gave the Wolverines another chance.
On first down, Jim Langhurst at-
tempted lateral behind the line to
Jim Strausberg, but he was hurried
and his toss went awry. Wally Hook,
a truly brilliant performer today,
smashed in to pounce on the loose
ball on the Ohio 16.
.Michigan's corps of backfield
speed-merchants then got to work.
Paul Kromer, who gave his home
state a miserable afternoon today,
circled the right end, to the 11. Hook,
on the next play, smashed from his
close position to inchesi short of a
first down on the Buckeye seven, but

LAGANGE, Ga., Nov. 19.- (P) -
Tossed by a battering rainstorm, a big
army bomber smashed up in a West
Georgia forest last night killing seven
fliers in one of the worst tragedies
in the history of military aviation.
An eighth was gravely injured.
The ship, anew two-motored, mid-
wing Douglas, was on P_ routine flight
from Mitchel Field, N.Y., to Maxwell
Field, Ala. So isolated was the spot
where it crashed the news did not
reach the outside world until today.,

Field operations manager who hur-

what he was able to piece together
from a crew member conscious until
his death in a Lagrane hospital, "bad
weather was the only apparent ex-
"We were flying low to get under
the ceiling," Major Maxwell said the
soldier related. "It was raining. Sud-
denly we hit a rough spot (apparently
a downward air current) and
bounced. Next thing I knew the plane
was ploughing through the trees.
no mechanical defects so far as I
could tell."
The plane, the investigators said,
apparently was going about 200 miles
an hour when it rammed into the
forest seven miles northeast of here.
It cut a path 150 yards long through
trees, some of them as big around as
a man's body.

preparation of preliminary drafts of
its proposed report until Chairman
Joseph R. Hayden of the political
science department confers with Gov.-
Elect Frank D. Fitzgerald, the group's
executive committee decided at its
initial meeting yesterday.

sor Hayden and Fitzgerald the execu-
tive committee will again be called
together to determine the Commis-
mission's future course of action, it
was revealed in a statement issued-
after the meeting.
Whether the Commission will at-
tempt to finish its report before Gov-
ernor Murphy leaves office Jan. 1,
could not be learned.
Functions of the group, which was
set up by executive order on Aug. 17,
are "to make a study of means and

The official news agency admitted

the population in turmoil. Existence
of a "revolt" was denied, however.

Will Present
Spanish Concert Pianist
To Feature Schuberti
Brahms In 3rd Concert'
Jose Iturbi, noted Spanish concert
pianist, will perform here at 8 p.m.
Tuesday. Nov. 22, at Hill Auditorium
in the third Choral Union presenta-
tior. of the year.
Starting his career at the age, of
seven, Iturbi studied at the Paris
Conservatory, and after four years
as head of the piano faculty of the
Conservatory of Geneva, embarked
on his chosen career, that of a con-
cert artist.
He first arrived in the United,
States in 1929. Within several months
he had made his name famous in mu-'
sical America. Since then Iturbi has
come back every season and has
played more concerts in this country
in the past nine years than any
other pianist 'except Paderewiski.
In 1933 Iturbi tried his hand at
conducting in Mexico City. He was
acclaimed an immediate success and,
upon his return to New York, was
invited to conduct the Philharmonic
Symphony Orchestra.
He has also conducted the Phila-
delphia Orchestra at Robin Hood
Dell; the summer concerts at Silver-
mine, Conn.; and the Los Angeles
Philharmonic at Hollywood Bowl. In
past years Iturbi has directed sym-
phonies in Detroit, Minneapolis and
Cincinnati and has been heard regu-
larly on the Ford radio program.

Graduate Group
To Elec Heads.

Harmon Scores
Tommy Harmon, who played his
usual stellar game today, picked up
a yard. Hook added three more on
a full/spinner that had Ohio baffled
throughout the day, and Kromer
made it less than a yard to go for
the score on a crack at right tackle.
On the crucial try, it was Harmon
who carried it over, lunging over
State's vulnerable right side clear
into the end zone for the six points.
Jack Brennan failed to convert.
That ended the scoring until the
fourth period, but there was never a
doubt that Michigan would strikO
again as the Wolverines controlled
the play throughout the second and
third periods.
Harmon had intercepted one of
Kimmy Sexton's passes with 19 sec-
onds remaining in the third quarter
slashing to the Ohio 41 before he
was downed. Kromer added a yard
before the period ended.
Michigan, employing a variation of
the Notre Dame shift for the first
time this year much to the consterna-
tion of the local contingent, hiked to
the right. Instead of running, Har-
mon faded and tossed to Ed Frutig,
who made a beautiful spear on the
Ohio 17 before he was downed.
Wolverines Offside
Howard Mehaffey, plowed through
a tremendous gap in the Ohio for-
ward wall to the five, for another
first down, and on the first play
Ramon circled left end and crossed
the goal line. Michigan was offside,
however, and was penalized to the
10. 'On second down, a low pass from
center which Kromer fumbled, moved
them back five more yards to the 15,
but this Michigan team had visions
and they kept plugging.
