Government Alone Is Ablef

fi Defense, Stein Says
Banker Considers
Finance Question
Government agencies alone cant
carry out a housing program for na-
tional defense workers on the scale
and with the speed required to se-
cure 100 percent industrial produc-
tion, Clarence P. Stein of New York,t
declared before the first Conference
on the Expansion of Industrial Com-
munities which convened its two-day1
meeting here yesterday.
"The public knows private businessl
cannot and will not supply homesĀ£
for the lower income workers," Stein1
said, and cited World War instances
in which discontent because of un-
satisfactory living places caused a1
labor turnover dangerous to the ef-
ficiency of industry.,
Alludes To World War
Alluding to housing experience-
during the World War, Stein suggest-
ed that lessons valuable to modern
planning could- be learned. One of
these lessons is that housing prob-
lems should be based on adequate
surveys, he said.
"Industrial Communities should be
planned for permanent use and for
the needs of- the future, he stated,
and observed that communities are
an essential part of industrial plants.
Speed in developing a program, he
said, depends on knowing what to
Private enterprise cannot providet
sufficient capital for the expansion of
industrial communities during the
defense emergency, Ernest Fisher of!
the American Bankers Associationj
told the Conference in a dinner talk.
Mr. Fisher, a former professor in
the School of Business Administra-
tion, pointed out that since financing1
for housing expansiop must be on
short terms, the government should
assume a role in providing the neces-1
sary capital.1
Community Expansion
The basic question in industrial
community expansion, he stated, is
the minimizing effects of industrial
community decline at the end of the
emergency. The problems of readjust-'
ment following the emergency will be
greater than the problems confronted
during the emergency.
In a talk on the economic back-
grounds of housing and planning,
Prof. Edgar M. Hoover of the econ-'
omics department stated that a rise
from 130 to 150 in the federal re-
serve index is not ridiculous and'
that this rise will be noticed chiefly
in industrial communities producing
durable goods.
Prof. Hoover pointed out the fac-
tors which determine the location of
new defense enterprises as conven-
ience to existing management, labor
supply, site and climate, war risk (a
probability of invasion or sabotage),
transportation and existing utilities.

Talk Reported
Of Tax Raise

WASHINGTON, Nov. 29. -{ -
Talk that $10,000,000,000 may be set
as the "goal" for Federal revenue col-
lections in the next fiscal year was
heard tonight in some administra-
tion quarters as President Roosevelt
and his advisers studied means of in-
creasing Federal taxes.
No official confirmation was avail-
able immediately. The $10,000,000,-
000 total, if achieved, would be the
largest ever collectedi in peace-time,
and would exceed the largest expendi-

the present defense program began.
Unofficial estimates are that the
current year's spending will run about
$13,000,000,000 to $13,500,000,000. Re-

TAMPICO, Mexico, Nov.29-In
face of reports that British and Ca-
nadian warships await them in the
Caribbean, the German merchantmen
Idarwald and Rhein sailed today
from their haven here with Spanish
ports on the- other side of the Brit-
ish Atlantic blockade as their de-
clared destination.
On the Eastern horizon as the
freighters nosed out of the Panuco
river and into the Gulf, hugging the
shore, could be seen the silhouette of
three foreign warships, toQ far dis-
tant for identification, but believed
to be United States neutrality patrol
United States destroyers were in
the vicinity two weeks ago when the
Idarwald and Rhein, with two other
merchantment, the Phrygia and Op-
inoco, made a luckless attempt to
brave the British blockade.
Seamen of the 4,137-ton Phrygia,
believing they saw Briitish warships,
fired and scuttled her; the 9,660-ton

Orinoco developed engine trouble
and returned for repairs to her moor-
ing in the Panuco, where she still
lay today, and the Idarwald, 5,033-
tons, and the Rhein, 6,031, also put
back to port to await a more pro-
pitious day.
Today's departure was not wiithout
mishap. The Idarwald, it was learned,

DETROIT, Nov. 29-0P)-Arraign-

the federal government's investiga-

The special Federal Grand Jury

division of the Department of Jus-

investigations. Rogge, however, said
that he would be back before mid-
December to take up other matters
uncovered in the recent momentous
session of the jury.

Barnum and Bailey were put to

thusiastic crowd of 1,000 Wolverine

Swim Gala they had ever seen.
From event number two on, the
spectators were sitting on the edges
of their seats waiting for the next
surprise to pop. If someone wasn't
dropping out of the ceiling, there
were comics roaring off the high
And if the comics weren't busy-
Matt's swimmers and a gang of rol-

their all and then some to put over

Claims Supremacy
LONDON, Nov. 29-(P)-The Brit-
ish Navy's Mediterranean offensive
apparently has broken an Italian"at-
tempt to establish new lines- of com-
munication with the Fascist African
forces, informed Britons declared to-
day, and has put Britain in substan-
tial control of the whole of that stra-
tegic sea.
This evaluation of the meaning of
the Battle of Sardinia~ officially said
here to have damaged six Italian war-
ships, offered one of the first direct

suggestions as to the reason for the
presence in that area of a Fascist
fleet of such considerable size.
When the British fell upon' them
last Wednesday, these experts said,
the Italians were attempting to cre-
ate an alternate sea route to reach
Libya-perhaps by way of the French
territorial waters of Tunisia.

CADIZ, 0., Nov. 29-0P)-Blast-

rescue crews as fears mounted for the
lives of 25 to 27 coal miners trapped
far underground in Ohio's deepest

Officials of the Ohio and Pennsyl-

said a recheck showed between 25
and 27 men in the blast area. They

had been located later proved un-
founded after company officials re-

vice-president, said, though, that the

Gone Are The Days:
Black Friday Breathes Its Last,
Class Games TakingIts Place


- rt


"Black Friday" is no more.
So says Douglas Gould, '41, presi-
dent of the Union, who announced
yesterday that organized frosh-soph
"depantsings" and duckings were a
thing of the past.
In its place the Union staff plans
to sponsor Class Games which will
probably be very similar to those held
before the world war, consisting of
pillow fights, flag pole rushes and
tug-of-war between two evenly di-
vided sides.
During the past decade, according
to Gould, "Black Friday" has been
more or less of a failure. The fresh-

side is more than eager for action.
Class Garies would enable the Union
to get an equal number of frosh and
sophs and some sort of class suprem-
acy could really be es'tablished.
Although two other organizations,
namely Congress Independent Men's
Organization and the Interfraternity
Council, assisted the Union in organ-
izing the "Battle of the Pants," this
fall it was announced that the latter
group would do all of the work in
the future.
Plans have already been discussed
for next November and several let-
ters have been sent out to discover
how other colleges and universities
