France Warns
Nazis And Italy
To Stay Away
From Colonies
People In Corsica, Tunisia
Stage Angry Gatherings
Against Acts Of Italians
Ribbentrop In Paris
To Sign No-War Pact
PARIS, Dec. 5.- (A') - Premier
Edouard Daladier said today France
was resolved to demand respect for
"the absolute integrity" of all French
territory by "every means"
This was his answer to the Italian
clamor over French Corsica and Tu-
nisia. Informed quarters read into
it an additional message to Ger-
many-France intends to keep her
colonies despite Germany's demands.
His declaration as it affected Ger-
many was held significant in view of
the arrival here tomorrow of Joachim
Von Ribbentrop, German Foreign
Minister, to sign a no-war pact and
to discuss the political situation.
Dalader Urges Calm
Daladier's remarks were in a com-
munique announcing his intention to
visit Corsica and Tunisia shortly af-
ter Jan. 1. He urged inhabitants
there to remain calm. The plea fol-
lowed yesterday's riotous demonstra-
tions against Italy and professing
loyalty to France.
Of the Italian press campaign and
Chamber of Deputies' demonstration
regarding France and French pos-
sessions, Daladier said:
"There is no need to state that
these manifestations will meet strong
opposition against the cession of any
territory over which the national
flag floats.
fla fDemonstration Is Reply
He said the loyalty demonstrations
in Tunisia and Corsica were "the best
response that could be made" to
Italian cries fox' French territory. He
noted that the Italian government
had answered a French protest by
stating the Fascist colonial claims
were not formulated by the govern-
British Prime Minister Chamber-
lain announced in bondon he had
received assurances the Italian gov-
ernment "did not associate" itself
with Fascist territorial demonstra-
tions against France and that he
therefore saw no reason to change
his plans to visit Rome Jan. 11.
,Pr ss Attack
(In Rome the Italian press intensi-
fied the campaign over Tunisia by
accusing France of taking a "provo-
cative attitude" In allowing Sunday's
Corsican and Tunisian demonstra-
tions of French loyalty. The au-
thoritative editor Virginio Gayda in-
dicatea Italy would present her de-
mands on France at some f ture date.
(In Tunis heavy police guards were
placed around the Italian consulate
.here angry crowds had shouted
"down with Italy." At Ajaccio, Cor-
sica, where there also were demon-
strations, the mayor appealed to the
people to remain calm.
"In Alexandria, Egypt, Frederic
Megret, French editor, formally com-
plained to authorities over stoning of
his home by a mob of 40 Italian
youths shouting "down with France.")
As French diplomats hastened
preparations for tomorrow's signing
of the good neighbor pact with Ger-
many they allowed the Italian colon-
ial claims to rest with Daladier's

In 4t Concert
Boston Symphony To Play
For 9th Successive Year
In Concert Tomorrow
Serge Koussevitsky brings .the Bos-1
ton Symphony Orchestra to Ann Ar-
bor for the 9th successive year tomor-
row when the noted group of more
than 100 artists presents the fourth
Choral Union concert of the year in
Hill Auditorium.
Dr. Koussevitsky took over the con-
ductorship of the orchestra in 1924.
Since that time, he has molded the
organization into what critics call one
of the finest groups of its kind in the
world, especially in its interpretation
of contemporary music.
Prof. Earl V. Moore, director of
the School of Music, who is especial-
ly well-acquainted with the work of
the group has this to say of the em-
inent Russian conductor: "His
achievements have raised him to the
forefront of conductors in the musi-
cal world. His interest is not limited
to one school or period of composition
nor is his interpretative ability nar-
rowed to, one type of composition"."

Campus Army
Marches Again
Meeting Of Undergraduate
Leaders Whips Program
Into ShapeFor Big Push
Organizations Urged
To Contribute Early
The Goodfellow Army took the of-
fensive in earnest yesterday as 18
campus leaders in a 90-minute execu-
tive strategy session, fashioned a
series of stream-lined maneuvers de-
signed to send Monday's all-campus
drive over the top like a rocket ship.
Spurning the traditional pre-drive
quota, the strategy board fixed upon
the sky as the limit and set about
concocting a campaign that gives
promise of jazzing receipts up over
even the immodest ethereal ceiling.
The proverpial Daily loving cup,
for two consecutive years the prize
of Senior Society, will come out of
retirement to be offered again thist
year to the organization rolling up
the largest bank roll from sale of the
Goodfellow Dailies. The organizations
themselves, hover, enjoy no 'known
immunity from contributions, it was
stressed, and all sororities, fraterni-
ties, honor societies; league houses,
dormitories, etc. are urged to forward
their contribution pledges to the
Goodfellow Editor of the Daily before
Saturday. A blank especially for this
purpose will be found on another part
of this page.
Because last year's receipts weres
disappointingly below the returnsj
from two years previous the Com-
mittee this year will intensify campus
coverage with an augmented staff of
Goodfellows and a greatly-increased
number of collection points.
Last year the bulk of the Fund was
amassed from the 10-hour street sale
of Dailies while in years preceding ad-
vance contributions had always made
up the major portion of the final
totals. Pre-driye pledges, consequent-
ly, are whole-heartedly encouraged
by the Executive Committee this year
and the Daily will publish a list dur-
ing the remainder of this week giving
names of organizations already on
the honor roll.

Goodfellow Fund Contributors
Aid Needy Throughout The Year


In contributing to the annual Good.
fellow campaign, University students
will be doing much more than sat-
isfying that urge to give which seems
to occur to most people exclusively at
Christmas time, according to Mrs.
Gordon W. Breevort, secretary of
the Family Welfare Bureau.
In her connection with the Wel-
fare Bureau, Mrs. Breevort has seen
many cases where individuals, an-
xious to give needy families a "good"
Christmas, have supceeded only in
shattering their morale and making
the work of social agencies much more
difficult. Money collected by the
Goodfellow fund is donated to the
Bureau to be used throughout the
year in helping families and indi-
viduals to reestablish themselves.
In the past, Mrs. Breevort said,
Goodfellow funds have been extreme-
lv helpfii in giving the Welfare Bu-

health. Freddie was finally given a
part in a high school play and began
to turn his attention to rehearsals, to
take less interest in his home life.
But to be in the play, Freddie needed
a costume and in her resentment
against this new interest, Freddie's
mother claimed that she was not able
to afford it. Through the Welfare
Bureau, Freddie was able to procure
his costume and since then has been
participating more and more in school
affairs. He is slowly combatting the
ill effects of an unhealthful home en-

A new cooperative, housing 20 men,
will be established next semester,
Douglas Tracy, '40E, chairman of
Congress' student welfare commit-
tee, announced yesterday.
The announcement, climaxing a
Congress campaign to enable students
to enjoy the benefits of cooperative
living through additional coopera-
tives, followed discovery of a suitable
dwelling located three blocks from
Selection of men to live in the new
house will begin immediately, Tracy
said. Selection will be in the hands
of the recently elected personnel com-
mittee, composed of Irwin Rohde,
'39E, from Robert Owen House;
Bronis Onuf, '39E, from Rochdale
House, William Rockwell, '4I, and
Since considerable work will be ex-
pected of each man to get the house
in shape, everyone will be expected to
work several days over Christmas va-
cation, Tracy said. In selecting men,
the personnel committee will give'
considerable weight to the amount of
work put in by each applicant.
Richard Shuey, '42E, was elected
temporary house treasurer at the co-
operative meeting Sunday in the
Union. He will begin immediate col-
lection of deposits to apply on mem-

bership deposit. The dollar will be
refunded if the applicant is not ac
Interviews will be conducted by the
personnel committee throughout the
following week. It is imperative, Tracy
added, that all students planning to
apply for membership attend Sun-
day's meeting. Arrangements for in-
terviews will be made at that time.
In promoting these cooperative
houses," Tracy said, "Congress hopes
to be of service to students by mak-
ing it possible for them to enjoy the
benefits of living cooperatively,"
Congress hopes to launch several
more new cooperative houses in the
future, he deplared.
