Conference
Of Americas
OpensToday
Pre- Session Conversation
Indicates Cooperation
Will Be Main Interest
Method Of Fighting
Propaganda Sought
LIMA, Peru, Dec. 8-(AP)-The twin
principles of "the Americas for
Americans" and closer cultural,
economic and political cooperation
claimed the major interest tonight of
delegates to the eighth Pan-Ameri-
can Conference which will open here
tomorrow.
Secretary Cordell Hull, head of the
United States delegation, said after
a talk with President Oscar Bena-
vides of Peru that he was encouraged
to believe there would be no differ-
ence on fundamental. issues during
the conference.
1041 ,Is Optimistic1
The Secretary of State told his
N press conference that pre-conference
talks were developing gradually what
appeared to be increasing disposition
to find ways of reaching agreements.
He described his conference with
Benavides as "very interesting," but
said he could not quote the Peruvian
President..
It appeared doubtful that "the
Americas for Americans" issue would
become a bitter fight on the confer-
ence floor because of the various dele-
gates apparent willingness to give
aadtake " on the matter.'
It was generally believed, however,
that the representatives would leave
the meeting of the 21 American re-
publics with a stronger determination
to combat foreign propaganda which
has been spread in South America
the past ,five years and which has
been speeded up since the four-power
Munich Conference Sept. 29.
Better Relations Seen
In the informal pre-conference
conversations, the hopes of bringing
the American nations closer politic-
ally a nd .ecnmcally-f not bY
actual military lliances-wereoi-
cussed more than any other topic,
although no delegate cared to ex-
press himself too openly,
Europebh Interest in this confer-
ence has been greater than in any
previous meeting. One evidence is the
presence of a large number of Euro-
pean correspondents, especially Ger-
man.
Some delegates were said to believe
a mere restatement of the Monroe
Doctrine would be sufficient to warn
European nations to keep hands off.
Others believe no definite action
was necessary because the American
nations, they said, always had stood
together and always would.

Faculty Will Turn Newsboys'
For Good fellow Drive Monday

Ruthven And Bursley Lead
'Peddlers' hi Noon Hour
Sales On The Diagonal
By ROBERT I. FITZHENRY
Fortunes of the fourth annual
Goodfellow drive were spurred to un-
precedented heights last night with'
the announcement of a gigantic open-
air apple polishing session to extend
the length of the diagonal from 12 to
1 p.m., (as the crow flies) Monday, at
which time more than a score of fac-
ulty men, cleverely disguised as
Goodfellows. will peddle the special
edition of the Daily.
The faculty force, though unaccom-
panied by the traditional grade books
and red ink, wil _inject, it is freely
predicted by unimpeachable sources,

sales. No incompletes will be ac-
cepted. Students esirous of "mak-
ing the grade" this semester are ad-
vised to present themselves early as
the lines of purchasers will be long
and there may be some valuable "A's"
and "B's" being lost in the scuffle.
Proposals to erect turnstiles at
each 'end of the diagonal and charger
admission for the noon hour showI
were rejected late last night on the
grounds that the faculty would lose
its amateur standing.
The process of separating campusc
peregrinators from coins large enought
to keep a nickolodian working over-1
time will be under the personal sup-
ervision of President Alexander G.v
Ruthven, and Dean Joseph A. Burs-t

his office in the middle of the dia-
onal from 12 to 12:15 p.m.

PARIS, Dec. 8-(IP)-A new crisis
hung over Europe yesterday as a re-
sult of growing "unofficial" Italian
agitation for French-ruled Tunisia.
Tension became acute with fresh
demonstrations in Italy and France
and angry Italian and anti-Italian
rioting in the French North African
protectorate.
Reports from the French-Spanish
border said 40,030 Italian troops were
massed in Insurgent Spain, just
across the Pyrenees from France,
emphasizingeFrench fears that Italy
might be preparing for military ac-
tion.
Heavy reinforcements of mobile
guards moved into Tunisia to cope
with the disorders. Italians there
were said to be getting ready to de-
fend themselves.
Students Riot
Thousands of French students
demonstrated against Italy in Paris,
battling police who sought to halt
t'hem, and crying "Venice for
France! . ,. Ethiopia for the Negus!"
Similar manifestations occurred late
yesterday in several cities of France.
There were fresh demonstrations
in Italy as the Italian press told of
"new violence" against the Italian
population of Tunisia.
In the midst of this resurgent
colonial rivalry between France and
Italy, French Premier Daladier went
before Parliament in an attempt to
strengthenhis government's position
at home the better to meet Italy's
clamor.
The Chamber of Deputies and the
Senate started general debate lead-
ing up to a vote Saturday on Dala-
dier's domestic end foreign policy.

Based on a comparison of sensitiza- i
tion tests administered by the Health1
Service with achievement tests given1
entering students, the figures indicate'
a positive correlaton between allergya
(hyper-sensitivity to proteins) andc
intelligence. Case records of 16,113
students were examined in the sur-.
vey, conducted from 1931 to 1935.
Allergic students, results show,
tend to score the highest marks onj
achievement tests, while non-aller-
gic students tend to make lower1
scores. The number of points scored;
on the exam was found on the whole
to be directly proportional to the
degree of allergy present in the stu-
dent.
While relative scores on achieve-
mnt tests do not always measure de-
grees of intelligence between indi-
viduals, Dr. Jimenez pointed out,
taken as a group they do tend to give

Wtih few exceptions the percen-
