Hoover Says AEF
Would Be 'Waste'
CHICAGO, Nov. 19-(.P)-Former
President Hoover tonight opposed
sending American troops to Europe,
contending such action would not
only be a "futile waste of American
life," but would also endanger eco-
nomic freedom in the United States
At the same time the former chief
executive called for a halt to what he
said was an attempt to condition
American minds artificially for war,
asserting that propaganda agencies
already were voicing a "preliminary
demand" for the sending of American
land forces into the European mael-

Main Course Of ASME Roast
To Be Grilled' Faculty Members
By CHARLES THATCHER
"The man who can take it.'
That's the title some engineering
faculty member is going to win at the
annual ASME Roast Tuesday, Dec. 9,
but he'll have to prove himself more
than worthy of the honor before he
Grilled by members of the Ameri-
can Society of Mechanical Engineers,
the six professors selected as con-
testants will be put to severe tests,
and all's fair in love, war and the
scope of the catch questions to be put
to the profs at that time.
But there will be glory in it. Sur-
vivor of the evening's verbal attacks
-with malice aforethought-will win
the famed Spoofuncup, a trophy con-
structed specially for the occasion
On Near East
Will Be Given
Prof. McDowell To Talk
On Caucasus Situation;
Will SpeakOn Sunday
An authority on the NearbEast and
its turbulent politics, Prof. Robert H.
McDowell will speak at 4 p.m. Sun-
day in the Rackham Lecture Hall on
"The Developing Battle Front in the
Caucasus and Iran."
The Committee To Defend Ameri-
ca will sponsor Professor McDowell's
address, second in its series of local
and outside lectures for the Allies'
cause. Jack Jones, Welsh coal miner
and labor leader, inaugurated this
year's program with an address Oct.
9 on British labor's position in the
Professor McDowell's acquaintance
with his subject dates back to his
birth in Alexandretta, Syria. Son of
American missionaries to Iran (then
Persia), Professor McDowell has spent
many years in this territory.
Although Professor McDowell was
mainly concerned with relief work
during the first two years of World
War I, he served as a lieutenant in
the British Military Intelligence on
the Caucasus front after 1916.
Continuing his relief work after
the war, Professor McDowell was also
in business in Iraq and Turkey from
1921 to 1928.

acting as Roastmaster, but even this
position has its faults, as the Roast-
master often takes a worse roasting
than the roastees.
The final decision will be aided and
abetted by an applause meter, con-
structed by the ASME for special
use at the annual Roast banquet. Ex-
tra precautions will be taken against
the use of "stock" faculty jokes,

ASME members met in secret ses-
sion last night and it is expected that
the names of those engineering fac-
ulty men who will soon have that
haunted look on their faces will be
released within the next few days.
Since the founding of the Roast
tradition in 1934, seven. professors
have been through the mill and have
had their names duly placed on the
coveted trophy, the original winner
being John Grennan of the metal
Subsequent martyrs were Prof.
Walter C. Lay, Prof. Axel Marin, the
late Prof. J. E. Emswiler and Prof.
H. L. Kohler, all of the mechanical
engineering department; the late
Dean Henry C. Anderson and last
year's title-holder Professor Dushnik.
The "loving cup" itself' was con-
structed in 1934 by W. E. Hawthorn,
an employe in the engineering me-
chanics laboratory, and was proposed
as an apt trophy for the annual Roast
