WASHINGTON, Dec. 6.- (P)-A
pay-as-you-go policy for the forth-
coming vast armaments program was
laid down today by President Roose-
velt, but he indicated a hope that this
might noit necessitate an increase in
the federal tax burden.
He said, in answer to a reporter's
question at a press conference, that
he favored the pay-as-you-go policy
even if it meant increased taxation,
but quickly added that because cer-
tain government expenditures are
self-liquidating, the total tax revenue
may not have to be increased.
Plan Budget Adjustments
Stephen Early, presidential secre-
tary, said afterward that tax in-
creases for defense might be avoid-
ed through "budgetary adjustments."
The President disclosed that when
he makes his recommendations to
Congress to reinforce land, sea' and
air defenses, he will not link them
with attempts to stimulate business
and employment through pump-
priming. National defense is na-
tional defense and nothing else, he
commented crisply.
Expands Plans
The Chief Executive shed new light
on his plans shortly after his re-
turn from a two-week stay at Warm
Springs, Ga. Earlier he had reviewed
European developments with three of
his key ambassadors and Sumner
Welles, acting Secretary of State. At
the subsequent meeting with news-
men he gave no explanation of the
subjects touched on.
In some countries, he noted, ex-
penditures were segrated into three
classes, as follows:
1. Govenrnental vunning expenses.
2. Exendlitures for absolutely self-
liquidating projects, such as Boulder
3. A type of expenditure which so
increases national income as to bring
in a return of the mopey over a period
of years

Student Fund
Has Given Aid
o Over 300
No history of tragedy avoided
through the efforts of the Goodfellow
drive would be complete without men-
tion of the work of the Student Good-
will Fund, supported in part by the
sale of Goodfellow Dailies and in part
by class contributions.
The Student Goodwill Fund was
established to aid students who find
themselves "up against it" financial-
ly and who need money immediately.
In worthy cases the money is granted
with "no questions asked." In the
six years of its.existence more than
$7,000 has been given to more than
300 students. The money contributed
is administered by Dean of Students
Joseph A. Bursley for men and Dean
of Women Alice C. Lloyd for women.
The money is given in small
amounts, never over forty dollars. In
all the time that the Fund has been
operating, Dean Bursley said, not one
of the students helped asked for
assistance of that kind. Usually dis-
covery of the student's difficulty is
made upon his application for a
loan, or through friends.
Many of the cases cited by Dean
Bursley reveal much hardship and
suffering among students which is
relieved by grants from the Student
Goodwill Fund. One case lie pointed
out was that of a graduate student,
married, with two children.

Competition For Daily Cup
Promises To Be Stiff
As ManySocieties Help
Five fraternities, one sorority and
three cooperative houses yesterday be-,

Cooperative, Robert Owen House and
Rochdale House become the first to
enscroll their wames on the Goodfel-
low honor roll.
Competition for the Daily, loving
cup promised to be unusually stiff as
campus honorary societies whipped
their sales forces into shape for Mon-
day's campaign. The cup will be
awarded this year to the organization
turning in the highest receipts (in-
cluding its own. contribution) to the
Daily at the close of the drive Monday.
All advertising receipts from publi-
cation of the Goodfellow Daily will
be turned over to the charity fund, it
was announced last night -by Phil
Buchen, '41L, business manager of
the Daily.
Goodfellows this year are accenting
early contribution pledges to the
drive. During the two year when the
drive reached its peak the bulk of
the fund was collected by advance
gifts. All dormitories, sororities, fra-
ternities, league houses and honor

societies are encouraged, therefore, to
send their pledges into the Daily
within the next few days.. Copies of
the Goodfellow edition will be dis-
tributed to all organizations forward-
ing their: subscriptions before Sun-,
day. Faculty members subscribing;
will also receive their papers through;
departmental distribution.

Canadian Team Halted
By Sparkling Local Six
Game Extended '
Two Overtimes
Twelve hundred hockey fans crowd-
ed the Coliseum last night as the
'38 edition of the -Wolverine hockey
sextet pried the lid off the puck sea-
son, sputtered through three see-saw
periods and finally went into high
gear in an abortive extra session that
failed to break a 2-2 deadlock with
McMaster University.
Following a lackadaisical first
period the Michigan team acquitted
itself of the initial taints of sloppi-
ness, polished up its attack and began
to match the Canadians thrust for

decidedly superior in stick work and
Miss Scoring Chances
In the overtime period Coach Eddie
Lowrey's first string forward wall
of Cooke, Doran, and Chadwick
looked like the Michigan teams of
the past, but they were not able to
capitalize on two set up shots.
Starting the first period, which
was also the first game of the season
for the visiting team, the Wolverine
squad was not able to click. As a re-
sult most of the play during this ses-
sion was held in front of the Michi-
gan goal.
Both Teams Spurt
More than once, last minute saves
by "Spike" James kept the Maroons
from making the first tally of the
game. The McMaster front line of
McAdam, Boyd, and Burt was able
to keep the Wolverine defense men
tied up in knots.
Both teams had their offensive
spurts throughout the second period.
Bob Burt broke loose for the Maroons
but "Spike" James credited himself
with another stop as he tossed his
opponent's shot to .the side. Doran
of the Wolverines had the same luck
only to be followed by a futile shot.
The first score of the game came

Success Based
On fPersonality,
Mead Contends
Professional success depends upon
personal initiative, personality and
clear thinking rather than social con-
nections, Dr. Daniel W. Mead, past
president of the American Society of
Civil Engineers, told an audience of
400 in the Rackham auditorium yes-
Speaking under the auspices of the
newly formed Engineering Committee
on Professional Ethics, DrI Mead de-
fined college as the place where "peb-
bles are polished and diamonds are
dimmed," where basic human values
show themselves.
The benefit of a higher education
depends entirely upon the way one
uses the opportunities it affords, he
said. "Even college drifters get little
from their environment." Necessity
and other motivating forces cause
those with meager resources to pass
others with greater means.
Pointing out that there can be no
abstract definition of the success to-
ward which every student aims, Dr.
Mead listed primary satisfactions as
self-respect, family and home. These
can be reached, he said, if the golden
rule is the fundamental determinent
of conduct. Also, one must "have
the sense to see where the great, ulti-
mate values lie," he said.
Those interested in living satisfac-
torily should, Dr. Mead said, scrutin-
ize themselves and others; use judge-
ment; not be mislead by surface Val-

ues and not take themselves too se-

Recommendations of the 1938

A complete investigation of the
honors and tutorial system in this

Additional advances In the realm
of progressive education by the Uni-

Kahn, in view of the excellent results
of such a curriculum at Michigan,
Swarthmore and Harvard. "The pres-
ent plan of honors study must be
constantly enlarged," he said, "if the
best needs and demands of education
are to be served."
The introduction of a system
whereby students may appraise in-
structors, another resolution of the
Education Panel of the Parley Com-
mission, will also be considered. Sena-
tors pointed out at the meeting, that
although there was the danger that
these appraisals might be too sub-

PARIS, Dec. "6-(A')-Nazi Germany
gave France a signed pact of friend-
ship today and sealed it with a prom-
Ise of at least a temporary respite
from territorial claims.
The promise embraced France's
colonial possessions as well as her
frontier on the Rhine.
Foreign Ministers Joachim Von
Ribbentrop of Germany and Georges'
Bonnet of France put their signatures
to a three-point accord formally bury-
ing ancient enmities, which pledged
good neighbor relations, recognized
the existing Rhine frontier, and called
for consultation on all problems ex-
cept those dealing with "particular
relations with third powers."
In conversations following the cere-
mony, it was learned from quarters
close to the Foreign Ministry," Rib-
bentrop also gave Bonnet assurances
Germany would not immediately press
any claims for return of her war col-
onies lost to France under mandates
after the World War.
The colonial question was the most
important among many discussed by
the diplomats in a general conversa-
The German Foreign Minister said
to have maintained Germany's "theo-
retical claims" for return of her cl-
onies, but to have pointed out that
the Reich had made no formal de-
mands and did not intend to do so for
the time being.
Discuss Italian Claims-
A similar attitude was understood
to have been taken toward the recent
Italian clamor for recognition of her
"interests and aspirations" in French
Tunisia and Corsica.
The Foreign Ministers also reviewed
the problem of the Spanish Civil War
in their talks, and the possibilities
of developing mutual trade, but no
definite decisions were reached.
Germany's immediate goal was
understood to be improvement of her
standing with France at. a time when
her relations with Great Britain and
the United States have grown strained
as a result of recent anti-Jewish
The "third powers" whose relations
with Germany and France were the
basis of the pact reservation on con,
sultation were not specified officially.
It was generally accepted, however,
that for Germany the phrase meant
Italy and for France, Britain.
French and German foreign affairs
experts, headed by Foreign Ministers
Georges Bonnet and Joachim Von
Ribbentrop, who signed the pact, con-
ferred for two hours and 40 minutes
but no decisions were announced.
Vote Armament Funds
Just before the French and Gers
man foreign ministers signed the so-
called "war renunciation pact," the
Chamber of Deputies finance com-
mittee earmarked the equivalent of
about $686,000,000 for France's army
and navy in a provisional approval'of
1939 budget requests-an increase
of $280,000,000 over 1938.
Tonight, after his first consultation
with the German delegation with the
German delegation, Bonnet told news-
papermen, "France hopes to see all
countries participate" in "the work
of cooperation" begun with the sign-
ing of the French-German accord.
He said the recognition of . the
French-German frontier as contained
in the pact had "put an end to a long
historic debate and prepared the way
for collaboration of the two coun-
tries." The Foreign Minister added
that the French and German people
hold each other in esteem that "was
born during the great war."

Pride And Prejudice' Receives

The minor difficulties that can
prevent a good play from being a suc-
cess are being ironed out in daily
dress rehearsals. Tickets, according
to box office reports are moving rap-
idly. Anpther sellout for each of
three performances is expected but
good seats are still available. The

"Pride and Prejudice," adapted
from the novel by Helen Jerome, was
widely acclaimed by Broadway critics
last year. It is the story, as the title
implies, of pride and prejudice in a
family of the Victorian era. Miss
Elizabeth Bennet, played by Miriam
Braus, dislikes a wealthy, priggish
young man, Mr. Darcy, played by
Karl Klauser, '39, and finally changes
her attitude toward him when she
