1940 Grid Captain;
Harmon Honored

Galens Plan Annual Tag Day Drive
To Benefit Handicapped Children


Team Selects 'Hammer'
Most Valuable Player;
'All-Opponents' Picked
Howarth Is Chosen
As Senior Manager
Forest Evashevski, 200-pound quar-
terback from Detroit and a spark-'
plug in the Wolverine backfield for
the past two years yesterday was
elected captain of Michigan's 1940
football team and Tom Harmon, sen-
sational running and passing half-'
back, was chosen the most valuable
player on the squad by his team-
Nicknamed "One-Man Gang" by
his mates last year, Evashevski was
a driving force behind the success of
Coach Fritz Crisler's first two Wol-
verine elevens. His signal-calling hasB
been termed by many experts as "next
to infallible" and his great blockingg
and tackling was instrumental in all
12 victories which the Wolverines
have gained since Crisler took over
the head coaching duties last year.V
An ankle injury sustained early in
the Illinois game lessened his block-
ing effectiveness perceptibly and was
an important factor in Coach Bob
Zuppke's surprise win over the Wol-
verines. The injury kept him out of
the Minnesota encounter the follow-
ing week, which Michigan dropped,
20-7, but Evie came back with bril-
liant performances against Penn and
Ohio State.
Although Evashevski very seldom
carried the ball this year, preferring
instead a blocking role exclusively on
the attack, he did enter the scoring
column three times during the season
by snaring touchdown passes from
Tom Harmon.
Harmon's claim to the most valu-
able work on the team should go al-
most without saying. He was Michi-
gan's "climax" runner, without
whom the Wolverines would have
been just another ball team. In
addition, he was a feared passer,
clicking for touchdowns on his three
tosses to Evashevski and also on one
to Ed Czak against Pennsylvania All

Verein Hears
Talk On China
By Ruth Wendt
Miss Ruth Wendt, resident coun-
sellor of Mosher Hall, opened the
annual lecture series of the Deuts-
cher Verein last night with an il-
lustrated account of her two year
stay in China.
Life in China, Miss Wendt said,
becomes boring after a short while,
for the foreigner, inasmuch as there
is little in common with the natives.
For one thing, life in the cities,
where the foreigners congregate, is
very international and petty in-
trigues and the differences in tongue
make insurmountable obstacles to
any get-together. For amusement,
especially in Shanghai, the foreigner
turns to sports, racing, and for the
most part, drinking.
Shanghai is much like Buenos
Aires, Argentine, Miss Wendt said,
because of the international aspect
and the geographical location. She
also spent several months in Han-
kow, which before the war began,
was a lively university town. Dur-
ing air raids, Miss Wendt said the
greatest fear was for the water sup-
This lecture, the first in the 'eries,
will be followed by five others at

Economics Club Sponsors
Professors Edgar M. Hoover and
Z. Clark Dickinson, of the economics
department will discuss their work
on wage committees under the Fair
Labor Standards Act at a meeting
of the Economics Club at 7:45 p.m.
today in the Rackham Amphithe-
atre. Students in the economics de-
partment and the School of Business
Administration may attend this meet-
ing, it was announced.
Professor Hoover was appointed
early this year to the committee on
shoes and allied industries and Pro-
fessor Dickinson was chosen for work
on the woolen industries committee.
Both faculty men represent the pub-
lic in the tri-partite groups under
the act.
The Fair Labord Standards Act
was passed in order to bring about
a 40 cent per hour minimum wage
rate in every industry in the United
States, according to an official bul-
letin. Unlike the NRA which at-
tempted to legislate wage rates at a
certain level, the Fair Labor Stand-
ards Act has set up committees re-
presenting labor groups, employers
and the public in an attempt to

"America's Disinherited," a film

today at the Union, and not in the
Natural Science Auditorium as pre-

Harry Stutz, Grad., vice-president of
the American Student Union.
Elliott Maraniss, '40, editorial

give a keynoting address.
Mort Furay, chairman of the De-

on Civil Liberties from attacks on
labor unions by the Rev. Charles
Coughlin, Martin Dies and Gerald 1
Smith. A. J. Tarini, editor of the
Civil Rights News, official organ of
the Michigan Civil Rights Federa-

This meeting should be of special

of the happiest events of the year
for the crippled 'children, many of
whom have been receiving treat-
ment for many years. Plenty to eat
and a plentiful distribution of toys
set the keynote of the Christmas
party for the crippled "kids" whom
Santa might have overlooked other-
The bulk of the funds collected
are used to support the Galens work-
shop-a constant source of good
cheer to the crippled children. In
it, they forget their long white rows
of hospital cots and lose themselves
in a netherworld of toy animals-
ducks, bears, dogs and animals of
an indeterminate species-all of
which they make themselves.
The "kids" are not selfish. They
build games, jig saw puzzles, boats,
autos for .children confined to oth-
er wards. Their work is spurred by
the thought that out of every two
toys they make, they can keep one
for themselves. i
Galens has not confined its activi-
ties to just the Tag Day drive. In
response to the pressing need for a
candy and cigarette stand in Uni-
versity Hospital, the society set up
a modern booth in the waiting room
-the profits of which may go into
a visual education program for the
medical school.
No goal has been set for the Tag
Day drive this year. More than
$1,600 was collected last year in the
two day campaign. The crippled
children need help more than ever
this year, a Galens spokesman re-
marked, because funds contributed
by the state have been curtailed.

Vindictive Purpose
BERLIN, Nov. 28.-(A)-The Ger-
man High Command tonight an-
nounced that a British heavy cruiser
had been "destroyed" by a German
submarine while the German press
already was celebrating the claim of
naval authorities that the Reich had
won mastery over the North Atlantic.
"A British heavy cruiser of the
London class," said the announce-
ment, "was torpedoed and destroyed
east of the Shetland Islands by
Lieut-Capt. Prien, the victor of Sca-
pa Flow."
Lieut.-Capt. Guenther Prien is the
31-year-old U-boat commander who
became a hero overnight by slipping
into the Scapa Flow naval base in
the Orkney Islands, north of Scot-
land, to sink the battleship Royal
Oak, Oct. 14. The Shetland Islands
are about 100 miles north of Scapa
London Professes Ignorance
(Official quarters in London said
nothing was known of the German
claim of destroying a heavy cruiser.
They suggested that it arosefrom be-
lief in Germany that the cruiser Bel-
fast had been sunk. The British
Admiralty has acknowledged that
the Belfast was damaged by mine
or torpedo off Scotland Nov. *21.)

ing home to the German public claim
of German naval authorities that

Budget ,Revised
To Distinguish
Defense Costs
Emergency' Expenditures
Segregated From Normal
'Peace' Appropriations
WARMS SPRINGS, Ga., Nov. 28,
-(P)-A presidential decision to seg-
egate normal and "emergency" ex-
penditures for defense in the annual
budget resulted today from the Ad-
ninistration's efforts to build up the
armed forces and isolate the nation
rom the European war.
Some $500,000,000 of expenditures
which may be attributed to the fac
that there is a war and the United
States is trying to remain neutral
Mr. Roosevelt said at a press confer-
ence, will go into a separate segmen
of the budget.
The way he put it, there will be an
"A" budget for defense setting forth
what would have been expended in
the year beginning July 1, 1940, ha
there been no war. There will be a
"B" budget, the President explained
containing the estimates of additiona
expenditures which are considere
necessary because of the conflict.
The Navy's regular "A" budget al
ready has been sent to the Hous
Appropriations Committee, he assert
ed, adding that he was putting in th
"B" budget items calling for abnor
mal increases of Naval defense.

The Foreign Office called the situ-

At midnight the Finnish govern-

Dr. Eugene Geiling Will Speak
Tomnor rowOn Pituitary Gland

LONDON, Nov. 28. -(A')- Prime if
Minister Chamberlain told the first
war session of Parliament today thatv
Britain did not enter the conflict t
against Germany "with any vindic-c
tive purpose" and disclaimed any in-
tention of imposing upon the foe "a
vindictive peace."
The Prime Minister spoke after
King George opened tl'e session with
,. speech assuring the British Empire
that the Royal Navy was keepingt
"free and open the highways of thet
sea" despite mounting losses to Bri-
tish shipping. t
Chamberlain declared the British- f
French blockade against German ex-i
ports, to become effective next Mon-
day, would do the least possible in-
jury to neutrals "consistent with the
purpose of stopping German exports."1
May Inconvenience Neutrals b
Chamberlain referred to neutral
protests against the blockade and
said that "we recognize these meas-
ures may cause inconvenience and
perhaps loss to neutrals," but that
"these measures for helping bring
our efforts to a successful issue may
well be worth some sacrifice on the
part of neutrals."
The Official Gazette published the
order in council decreeing the block-
ade, originally scheduled to become
operative today but deferred to per-
mit neutrals to make adjustments.
The latest British loss at sea,
meanwhile, was the 2,483-ton steam-
er Uskmouth which went down with
three of her crew of 25 missing. The
cause of her sinking was not made
known immediately.
The Admiralty stated the assertion
of the German radio that a British
cruiser of the London class had been
destroyed by a U-boat was "devoid
of truth."
Harland P. Dodge Speaks
At Tau Beta Pi Meeting

Dr. Eugene M. K. Geiling of the
University of Chicago will speak on
the pituitary gland at 4:15 p.m. to-
morrow' in the Lecture Hall of the
Rackham Building.
The lecture is a University Lec-
ture sponsored by the Department of
Biological Chemistry.
Dr. Geiling, whose subject is "The
Comparative Anatomy and Pharm-
acology of the Pituitary Gland," has
shuttled between the Union of South
Africa and the United States for his
education and during his career.
His school has seen him attend the
University of South Africa, the Uni-
versity of Illinois, the University of
Capetown, Yale, Johns Hopkins and
finally, Chicago, where he now serves
as chairman of the Department of

research has been very successful
in discovering that many hormones
are proteins or protein derivatives.
Dr. Geiling is well known in in-
ternational scientific circles for his
pituitary research. For the past few
summers, he has accompanied whal-
ing expeditions in order to acquire
the pituitaries of lower mammals.
He has hunted the upper reaches of
the Arctic down to the equator and
encountered all types of porpoises
and whales.
Dr. Geiling is president of the
Society of Experimental Pharmacol-
ogy and Therapeutics. He is con-
sidered by Dr. Lewis, chairman of
the Department of Biological Chem-
istry and director of the College of
Pharmacy, as one of the most cap-
able and versatile men in his field
because of his training in soils, ani-
