Senators Pittman And Borah
Begin Neutrality Discussion
WASHINGTON, Oct. 2.-(AP)-A history-making Senate debate to de-
termine whether this country;should lift its ban upon arms sales to bellig-
erents began today with Senator Pittman (Dem.-Nev.) declaring that the
embargo gave unfair aid to Germany and Senator Borah (Rep.-Idaho)
warning that repeal would put the United States into war.j
Before crowded galleries tense with a realization. of the gravity of the
occasion, the slim 67-year-old Nevadan quietly stated the Administrauion's
case and the "Lion of Idaho" replied with a vigor that belied his 74 years. ;
Pittman, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, declared
at the outset that the proposal to repeal the arms ban and place all trade
with belligerents upon a 90-day-credit-and-carry basis was "the most
important legislation that has ever been proposed to .Congress." The pres-
ent world situation was the gravest in history, he said, and "we as the
representatives of a peace-loving democratic people have no right to refuse
to take into consideration that such war, or a war that develops out of it,
may not some day be brought to the gateway of our. own country."
Borah, speaking as dramatically as years ago wnen he led the success-

Referring to the legislation's pro-
vision that belligerent purchasers of
American goods must take title to
them before they are shipped, and
transport them in non-American yes-
sels, the Idahoan said it had been
argued that Americans would no-
longer invite attack from the com--
"It does not seem to me quite sol
simple,":he continued. "If a r anu-
facturing plant, we will say, is locat-
ed at Wilmington, Dela., engaged in
shipping munitions to Great .Britain;
will the antagonists, belligerents, wait
until title has passed?
"Will not every munitions manu-
facturing plant, every arsenal in thea
United States, be spotted for destruc-
tion? Will they wait until the cargo
is in course of shipment to plant the

Destroy the shippers? . . . it will

Borah said he could not see how'
this country, once having changed its
law to permit sales which he said
would admittedly go to France and
England, could refuse ultimately to
send its armies to their aid also.

Ted Spangler To Supervise
Cheering This Season
Two new yells and an enlarged
cheering-section will improve the
support of the football team this fall,
Ted Spangle?, '40, head cheerleader,
announced last night.
Eight cheer leaders will see their
first action this year at the pep rally
which will be held Friday, Oct. 6, in
Hill Auditorium. They will teach
me of the new cheers to the students
who attend the meeting. This new
yell is called a "whisper cheer" and
consists of repeated spellings of
"Michigan" which grow in volume,
ending in a shouted "Yea Michigan."
The second cheer will not be ready
for use during the State game, as the
yelling must be coordinated with the
The well known surprise stunts of
the cheer leaders which have always
taken place before games will not be
lacking this year. Spangler said that
his charges preferred not to make
any of the plans for these stunts
known until time for their execution.
Organized voicing of the famed
Michigan "spirit" will be under the
direction of the following men this
year: Ted Spangler, '40, head cheer
leader. Ken Kimble, '40; Art Treut,
'41; Chuck Jaslow, '41; George John-'
son, '41; Walt Florvs. '42; Bud

For Those Interested
Anyone who can sing, dance, tell
fortunes, or who feels that he can
do something of interest to three or
four thousand college students should
make an appointment for an audi-

Morris Hall, who has issued a call for
entertainers to take part in the vari-
ety portion of Varsity Night in Hill
Auditorium on Oct. 17.
Varsity Nighit, annual affair on
campus, is a time when the band
removes itself to Hill Auditorium to
stage an evening of entertainment.
Last year a program similar to the
then popular "Professor Quiz" per-
formance was presented. This year
the variety program has been sub-
As yet the prizes for this year have
not been announced. About fifty
dollars was distributed to contestants
in last year's program, and it seems
likely that at least that sum will
again be offered this year.
