WASHINGTON, Oct. 3.-'P)-Sup-
porters of administration foreign pol-
icy quickly seized upon the sinking of
the tanker I. C. White tonight as
new evidence the Neutrality Act
should be amended. Some of the
Presdent's critics, however, declafed
their positions were unchanged by

The ship was reported torpedoed
Sept. 27 in the South Atlantic. Thir-
ty-four of its crew of 37 Americans'
were picked up today 450 miles east
of Recife, Brazil. Through a sb

News of the sinking was received
a short while after a renewed an-
nouncement by President Roosevelt
that he would ask Congress to revise
the neutrality law, and would decide
in exactly what particulars after a
conference on Tuesday with Repub-.

well, of lifting the restrictions which

plies to England.
(There is no statutory provision
forbidding a vessel like the I. C.

registry, being armed, but it was not
immediately known whether it actu-
ally had guns.)

W. Averill Harriman, the head of
a mission now in Moscow, was given
instructions to take up the question
of freedom of religion, Mr. Roosevelt
told a press conference, but had not
as yet made a report. Other efforts
in this direction had been made pre-

Dodgers, Yankees Are Idle
As Landis Postpones
Scheduled Third Game
BROOKLYN, Oct. 3.-(P)-Rain
and fog wrapped a wet blanket
around the World Series today, forc-
ing postponement of the third tussle
between the Brooklyn Dodgers and
New York Yankees and even threat-
ening tomorrow's prospects.
When white-haired Commissioner
Kenesaw M. Landis dramatically an-
nounced, "Gentlemen, I have made
my decision and the game's off," he
gave baseball's annual classic its first
setback in five years. There was a
chapice it might get its second to-
morrow with more rain forecast.
Each postponement delays the
schedule one day, but does not dis-
turb the order of the games. The
next three contests will be played at
Ebbets Field whenever the weather is
favorable and two more, if necessary,
will be at Yankee Stadium.
The interruption of the program
did not affect the immediate pitching
plans of the two managers. Kirby
Higbe, a 22-game winner with a bug-
gywhip. arm,, was generally expected
to take the mound for the Dodgers,
with lefty Marius Russo the probable
starter for the Yankees.

place to gamble and would leave

War Produces New Methods
For Treatment Of Casualties

Modern warfare, has been made
safer by new methods of treating
wounds developed in the present Eur-
opean War, according to Dr. John
Converse, surgeon in the American
Hospital in London during the first
years of the war.
The most successful of the new
methods of treating wounds caused
by bombs or bullets is to dress the
wound after sterilization with newly
grafted skin instead of gauze. A layer
of sulfanilimide is placed under
the new skin before it is placed on the
After the new skin is grafted/ on,
the wound is enclosed in a plaster
cast, which is left on it for several
Dr. Converse explained that the
great majority of wounds treated in
this manner have healed successfully
and quickly.
In some cases a plaster cast cannot
be placed on the wound. When the
wound is of this nature, a silk sack
is placed over the wound, with liquid
in it to lubricate the newly grafted
skin. When the liquid is drained out,
the sack is pumped up with oxygen
in order to dry out the scar.

Wounds in the field are frequently
treated by this method, when it is
impossible to obtain materials to
make a cast, Dr. Converse stated.
"While war itself has become more
horrible, and every civilian is a par-
ticipant in it, surgery has developed
methods which are cutting downl
greatly the mortality rate of those
injured, and saving valuable time of
surgeons treating the wounded," he
Prior to Dr. Converse's talk, Dr..
Frederick Coller. chairman of the
University Department of Surgery,
traced the history of the treatment of
those wounded in warfare.
At the time of the last World War,
he said the medical corps found that
it had no really quick and successful
way of treating wounds other than
by amputation. Two new methods
were f developed, that of excision of
the wound and the French method of
immobilizing the wound and dressing
it infrequently.
Since then development of the use
of the sulfa-chemicals have made
possible more successful treatment of
war wounds.

Unable to appear last week because
of insufficient time for organization,
the 128-piece University Marching
Band under the direction of Prof.
William D. Revelli will make its first1
formal appearance of the year whent
it takes the field before the Michigan-t
Iowa _game this afternoon.j
Following the band's former policy
of linking its formation with current
events, the maneuvers today will fea-
ture the World Series, several inter-
esting formation having been perfec-
ted during the week.
New to the band's routing this year
will be a streamlined method of get-
ting the band on the field before the
game. Otherwise the procedure will
follow last year's, including a march'
to the stadium from Morris Hall, ap-
pearances before the game and be-
tween halves and a march back to'
Morris Hall after the game.
Voted one of the outstanding
marching bands in the country last
year, the band presented such for-
mations as a violin with a moving
bow, parts of a barn dance sequence;
an anchor for Navy Day; a jack-o-
lantern for Hallowe'en; and a donkey
and an elephant for election day as
well as a number of other intricate
FDR Speaks

Civilian Welfare Declared
Essential To Defense
WASHINGTON, Oct. 3. -(A)-
President Roosevelt broadcast an ap-
peal to every American tonight to
help build a "stronger and better"
nation by contributing to commun-
ity chest and welfare funds.
Starting the annual mobilization
for human needs, Mr. Roosevelt said
in an address prepared for the radio
that the well-being of the civilian
population must be built up for the
added reason this year that "ade-
quate national defense definitely
needs it."
The President spoke during a pro-
gram in which Wendell L. Willkie
and Tom K. Smith, St. Louis banker
and head of the mobilization, also

the contest.
Green Rated High
Green, who made an auspicious
Conference debut here on the Stadi-
um turf two years ago when Tom
Harmon ran wild in Michigan's
smashing 27-7 win over the Hawks
and Nile Kinnick, now rates as one
of the country's finest fullbacks.
Last fall the hard-running speed-
ster shouldered virtually all of Iowa's
offensive burden. He gained an aver-
age of 3.9 yards every time he took
the ball. In the Hawks' sensational
victory over Notre Dame, Green
jarred his way for 92 yards, while all
the rest of the Iowa backs picked up
only two yards all day.
But this fall Dr. Eddie Anderson
has uncovered a' couple other offen-
sive threats to join Green in a top-
notch backfield combination. A swiv-
el-hipped lad named Bus Mertes
weaved his way for 10 yards each try
against Drake and will be a serious
threat today if the Hawks can spring
him into the Wolverine secondary.
Youel Can Pass,-Punt
Handling the pitching half of the
Iowa aerial attack will be lanky Jim
Youel -who is handicapped somewhat
by inexperienced Hawkeye flankmen.
Youel also does the punting for the
invaders and will have a distinct
edge over the Wolverine puhters.
Matching power with power, Coach
Crisler will send into action at the
fullback slot Capt. Bob Westf all,
fourth leading ground gainer in the
nation last fall.
Likely starters at the halfback
slots for the Maize and Blue are vet-
erans Davie Nelson at tailback and
Tippy Lockard at wingback. Little
Davie staged a superlative exhibition
of broken field running against the
Spartans, gaining 62 yards in just five
tries, until he was forced out of the
Kuzma Will Play
Backing up Nelson and certain to
see plenty of action is the big, blond
sophomore, Tom Kuzma, who power-
blasted his way to two touchdowns
in his initial Varsity appearance.
With some game experience behind
him, this second Gary Flash is primed
to go places. Kept out of action last
week because of slight leg injuries,
another sophomore, triple-thteat Don
Robinson, is all set to demonstrate
today just what has made him one
of the Wolverines' outstanding prac-
tice performers.
Behind Lockard at the wingback
post there's Chuck Kennedy, a big,
willing runner from Detroit, who's
also a soph. After Chuck come

ed to wingback, and Ray Sowers.

Grid.Weekends Raise Problems
For Ann Arbor's Restaurateurs

When anywhere from 40 to 80
thousand people drop into town for
a football week-end, they must be
fed, and the local restaurants have
their own favorite and individual
methods of planning for the game
week-ends, and serving as many of
the hungry mob as possible.
Beginning on .campus, both the
Union main dining room and cafe-
teria are very calm about the whole
thing. Upstairs, the amount of food
is doubled and the dining room hours
lengthened to take care of the crowd.
As in every other case, the menu is
simplified so that the service is
stepped up as fast as possible and
the foods which require a great deal
of preparation are eliminated.

prietor said that he would be up and
busy at 4 a.m. this morning, cutting
meat and slicing cheese.

pendent upon how "hot" the game
was expected to be, and also based
somewhat on previous seasons. Since
most of his business is sandwiches,.
he too cuts down on his menu anda

which there has been the highest de-
mand in previous weeks.
State Wanted Milk

ing a much heavier demand for cof-
fee today," he explained.
