Jubilant Nazis Aged Medical Alumna

In Memel Poll
Diet Election Is Regarded
As Prelude To Return
Of Territory To Reich
Decree Is Issued
To 'Proteet State'
MEMEL, Lithuania, Dec. 11-(P)-
Nazis' voted heavily and claimed a
victory today in the Memel Diet elec-
tions, which were regarded as a, pre-
lude to return of the territory to Ger-
Nazi Party quarters declared they
had captured at least 26 of the 29
seats, although complete results will
not be knowrn for at least five days.
At the same time the Lithuanian
goverpment at Kaunas, already help-
less in administering semi-autono-
mous Memel territory in the face of
Germany's power as exerted through
local Nazis, issued an extraordinary
decree "for protection of the state."F
The government emphasized that
the decree, which applies to Kaunas
and surrounding districts, was issued
'because of activities of the opposition
of the extreme right which might be
used oi behalf of a foreign country to
endanger Lithuanian integrity.
Other sources said President Anta-
nas Smetona invoked the state of
emergency because of his concern
over student anti-Semitic demonstra-
tions in, the capital yesterday. Hun-
dreds of Jews fled into Kaunas and
the Lithuanian hinterland.
The election itself was marked by
order among the 152,000 population
-the only casualty in pre-poll activi-
ties being an American named Robert
Sellmer, a free lance newspaper man.
(Reuters, British news agency, re-
ported that Sellmer was a contributor
to Ken magazine.)

Campaign Given Running
Start Toward Record
By Advance Donations
Faculty Members
To Assist In Sale
The Goodfellow Army, more than
400 standard-bearers of cheer and
kindness, received its marching or-
ders at 7:30 a.m. today, and exactly
at the zero hour an advance guard
of the corps invaded strategic spots
on campus aild downtown, beginning
the fourth annual sale of the Good-
fellow edition of the Daily, to provide
year-round aid to underprivileged
families, students and hospital pa-
Advance contributions, received by
the Goodfellow Editor Saturday and
yesterday gave the drive a running
start toward the new record which
student leaders are confident will be
set after the proceeds from today's
sale of Dailies are tabulated.
Fraternities Get Dailies
Fraternities, sororities and- League
Houses which have made advance
contributions will receive their

In two dingy rooms in a dilapidated
house on Ann Arbor's west side, her
belongings piled high about her, lives
Dr: Katherine L. Crawford, the first
colored woman ever to receve an M.D.
degree from the University of Michi-
Dr. Crawford, who graduated with
the class of 1898, will be 80 years
old in January. She started out to
practice here immediately upon grad-
uation, but circumstances so con-
spired against her that she is today,
and has been for most of the past
10 years, destitute.
Today Dr. Crawford is living on at
30 dollar a month grant from the Old
Age Assistance Bureau. She is
charged 25 dollars a month rent for
the house in which she lives, leaving
gas, water and electricity bills. For
but five dollars with which to pay
food she has a small sum of money
from the sale of property years ago,
but it has dwindled until today she
must use it too sparingly . to derive
any great degree of comfort from it.
Several years ago as she was leav-
ing the County Building, Dr. Craw-
ford fell on the steps, injuring both
her ankles. One mended correctly,
the other never has, and she has nev-

er had enough money to have it prop-
erly treated. Today she is not able
to be on her feet longer than an hour
at a time and must bathe the injured
ankle many times a day to relieve)
the pain. She must, nevertheless, do
her own housework.
Upon being informed of Dr. Craw-
ford's condition, Barrett Lyons,
Washtenaw County supervisor for
the Old Age Assistance Bureau, prom-
ised that a review of her case will be
made, and that every effort will be
exerted to secure her more reasonable
living accommodations. The Execu-
tive Board of the Goodfellow Drive
will consider Dr. Crawford's case in
allotting money secured in today's
drive and will decide what action to
take on direct relief for her.
When she graduated, Dr. Crawford
began practicing locally, but after
two years during which she had made
a comfortable living, she was forced
to stop because of family difficul-
ties. During the next years she at-
tempted to practice in many different
places, even journeying to Califor-
nia and Florida on jobs. But she
found prejudice against women doc-
tors, no reciprocity laws allowing
persons authorized to practice law in

Trojans Go On Tear;
Fix Up Lord's Prayer

rYY° IAAiI IA i y.


Motion-picture conscious students
of the University of Southern Cali-
fornia have paraphrased the Lord's
Prayer in a poem now current on the
.ampus, according to the Daily Tro-
jan, college newspaper.
The poem runs as follows:
Our fathers who art in California
Hollywood be thy namej
Thy cinema come
Thy stills be dumb
In Los Angeles as in New Haven.
Give us this day our daily newsreel
And forgive us our censorship
As we forgive those who show
double features before us,
Lead us not into musical comedies
But deliver us from Westerns
For thine is the King Kong
The Powell and the Gloria Swanson
For ever and ever, ah me.

of the American Student Union, will

at the national convention of the

Started 3 Years Ago
Initiated three years ago by a group
of undergraduate leaders and Mrs.
Gordon Brevoort of the Welfare Bu-
reau in response to demands for a
coordinated campus welfare move-
ment, Goodfellow Day now flourishes
as an established Michigan .tradition,
a tradition which "directs Christmas
enthusiasm into useful channels."
Annual sums collected by Goodfel-
lows peddling special editions of the
Daily have averaged more than $1,200
in the past three years, almost every
penny of which has been poured into
the coffers of local welfare agencies.
The Michigan Daily Goodfellow
Award, a loving cup, will be presented
to the student organization showing
the most cooperative spirit.
The funds collected this year will be
distributed in the following fashion:
1. The Social Service Department
of the University Hospital will receive
