Socialist Club Will Open
Living Quarters Soon
For Women Students

At 3 Per Week
Matron Will Be Secured
To Sipervise Project;
Many Request Rooms
Plans for a co-operative house for
women students, to -be opened here
soon by the Michigan Socialist club,
were announced last night.
Women students who are finding
their college plans blocked by finan-
cial difficulties will be given an op-
portunity to get their rooms at $2
per week and their board at a maxi-
mum of $1 a week. They will be
obliged to do their own cooking, but
this task will take up 'no more than
four hours a week if p r o p e r l y
planned, according to members of
the club.
Only.18 students can be accom-
modated by the club, it was an-
nounced, and women who intend to
take advantage of the reduced costs
provided by the plan were urged to
make reservations at once. Requests
for a women's house resulted in the
decision of the club after plans had
been completed for the men's co-op-
erative establishment also to be op-
erated by the Socialist club. Six
women have called the club request-
ing information about the women's
house.
A matron will be secured to super-
vise the women's house, it was said.
All persons seeking information were
asked to call Sher Quraishi.
Men's Socialist House
Will Open on Saturday
The Michigan Socialist House for
men will be opened on Saturday, 18
students taking up residence at the
establishment at that time.
Officials of the club announced
yesterday that ample room for 12
more students remains at the house
and that if therequests for reserva-
tions exceed that number another
house will be procured. All persons
who wish to take advantage of the
reduced rates were asked to make
reservations with the club as soon
as possible.
Donations of furniture have been
coming in, it is said, but more is
needed and the club is continuing its
request for furniture, jars for can-
ning, and textbooks. The house was
inspected and approved yesterday by
Mrs. Karn, official inspector of houses
for the University, Dean Bursley's
approval by mail is expected soon.
The tenants of the co-operative
house include five holders of PhD.
degrees and six graduate students.
Out of the 18 members, three are
from foreign countries. An interest-
ing feature is the fact that the fur-
nace will be manned by a Ph.D.
Mrs. Ruth B. Buchanan, one of
the founders of the Starr Common-
wealth for boys, will have charge
of the house. She has lived in Ann
Arbor for 13 years and three of her
sonls have graduated from the Uni-
versity.
Cannon Turns
Upon Hoover's
Dry Law Stand
Declares President 'Has
Given In to Speakeasies
And Bootleggers
GENEVA, Aug. 17. -(P) - Bishop
James Cannon, Jr., who helped

Hoover in 1928, declared today that
in his acceptance speech the Presi-
dent "surrenders to the speakeasies,
bootleggers and nullifiers of the Con-
stitution without ever asking Con-
gress to furnish the Government suf-
ficient money and men to secure
average enforcement of the prohibi-
tign law."
The bishop asserted that advocates
of Federal prohibition "who believe
prohibition to be the outstanding
economic, social and moral issue of
the present campaign cannot logic-
ally support President Hoover. Can-
non said it is doubtless hundreds of
thousands will refuse to vote for

loon gondola at 5:06 a. m. (11:06
p. m. Eastern Standard Time) Y
Wednesday 'on his second ascent
into the stratosphere.t
ZURICH, Switz., Aug. 17.-(P)-Dr
Auguste Piccard will start at dawni
tomorrow on his second perilous as-t
cent into the stratosphere in thec
cause of science.r
The elderly Brussels professor an-
nounced today he would leave be-1
tween 4 and 5 o'clock in the morn-,
ing for another exploration of the
rarifled reaches above the earth. He[
may be accompanied by his assist-
ant, Max Cosyn, if the latter's healthI
is strong enough to stand the adven-1
ture.
Tonight Dr. Piccard refused to1
leave the field for dinner and re-l
mained to direct the workman in last
minute preparations. The wind wasf
blowing toward Germany and plans
were made for a landing in East Ger-,
many, Czechoslovaki or Poland.
Automobile loads of the curious ar-j
rived throughout the evening from
Germany, France and Switzerland,
and excursions were running in here
constantly. The hotels were prepar-j
ing to take care of the overflow and
refreshment stands were being built
along the road leading to the take-
off field. The city was ready for a
gala day.
Arrangements for the flight, post-
poned several times on account of
the weather, went forth rapidly. The
great balloon envelope was stretch-
ed out on the field for inflation and
the aluminum gondola in which the
men will ride was examined minutely
to guard against accidents.
Auto Ban Will Not Be
Changed in Fall Term
Summer exemptions from Univer-
sity auto regulations will not apply
in the fall term, Walter B. Rea, as-
sistant to the dean of students, said
yesterday. No major changes in the
rulings are contemplated.
Summer regulations will be lifted
at noon tomorrow. Law students and
others whose school continues in ses-
sion after tomorrow may operate
cars without any University restric-
tions.

BERLIN, Aug. 17.--P)-Success in

science-disintegration of masses of
atoms-was announced Tuesday by
the German General Electric Co.
The new accomplishment takes big
power-announced as the entire out-
put of the German plant-and con-

The Germans claim to have pul-

stead of the f e w hit-and-miss

The governor made his announce-
ment before a Governor's day crowd
at the Ionia County Free Fair. Since
former Gov. Fred W. Green chose the
fair to announce his candidacy in
1926 a tradition has grown up that
it is a place in which important poli-
tical pronouncements a r e made.
Green has said he is neutral in the
current Republican gubernatorial
campaign. He declared he is neither
for nor against Brucker, nor any of
the other candidates in the field.
Mayor William H. McKeighan of
Flint and George W. Welsh of Grand
Rapids, opposing Brucker for the Re-
publican nomination, have advocated
abolition of the state police. The
governor replied by saying:
"The unrest incident to unsettled
times has rendered imperative strict
maintenance of law and order. The
state police have been indispensable.
With its police radio, Michigan today
has the finest co-ordination of state
law enforcement in history."

Others at the conference were
Robert Jackson and Frank C. Walker,
secretary and treasurer respectively
of the national committee.
"Many stories have appeared re-
cently which would indicate that the
Democratic National committee is at-
tempting to avoid or repudiate its
honest debts," Farley said after the
conference. "Such, of course, is not
the case, as these are legal obliga-
tions.
"Arrangements have been nade
with the holders of our obligations
covering their liquidation which are
satisfactory to all concerned.

TOPEKA, Aug. 17.--UP)-At a sim-

In keeping with the desire of Mr.
Curtis, the ceremony will be in sharp
contrast with the pomp which ac-
companied his notification four years
ago.
The Kansas Capitol will be the
scene again, but the ceremony has
been shifted from the south to the
north steps of the State House to
save the expense of building a canopy
to protect the dignitaries from the
sun.
Everett Sanders, chairman of the
Republican National committee will
preside.
L. J. Dickinson, of Iowa, keynoter

tion, will make the notification

to fathom the secrets--and the pos-

barriers.
The meager reports indicate the
Germans have made a long stride
along this road, but have not yet
reached the heights they wish, prob-
ably countless billions of smashed
atoms. They describe the tube which
breaks atoms by the millions, "a rate

suffice to measure the wreckage,"
and state that it has been dismantled
so that a still larger one may be set
up.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass., Aug. 17.
-(P)-Prof. John H. Williams, of
Harvard university, said at the Insti-
tute of Politics today that American
taxpayers are beginning to realize
that reduction of war debts would
be to their advantage for three rea-
sons. He said that these were:
1-Insistence upon full payment,
may bring default or repudiation.'
2-Certain compensations may be,
secured through reduction of the
debts which would more than com-
pensate the American people for loss
of debt payments.
3-The process of payment has
harmed our international trade.
Williams proposed that after the
elections in November the President
and Congress authorize the recrea-
tion of the Foreign Debt Funding
Commission to re-examine the debt
funding agreements and revise them
in accordance with the changed ca-
pacity of each debtor nation to pay.
As payments can be made ulti-
mately only in goods and services, he
said, our debtors must now sell half
as much again in commodities in
order to pay the annual debt charges
at a time when international trade
has declined to 60 per cent of its
1929 volume.
'Old Ironsides' Ready
To Celebrate Victory
WASHINGTON, Aug. 17.--(P)-
The U. S. frigate Constitution will
fly the old 15-star Union Jack Fri-
day for the first time since 1812 in
celebration of the one hundred
twentieth anniversary of her victory
over the British man o'war, H. M. S.
Guerriere.
It was in that famous battle off
the Grand Banks, in the war of 1812,
that the Constitution was given the
name "Old Ironsides." Shots from
the British vessel bounced off her
stout oak sides without causing the
slightest damage.

ever, summon 12, including Police
Commissioner Edward P. Mulrooney
and Edward M. Stanton, former sec-
retary to Walker.
Climax of Day
The climax of the testimony today
came when Gov. Roosevelt denounced
Walker's attitude toward his brother's
splitting city physician fees.
Curtin, after winning his conten-
tion before Roosevelt that all Hof-
stadter Committee witnesses should
face the Mayor, refused to call them
himself. He has argued through the
five days that Seabury should be re-
quired to produce them.
"You are asking me to produce
witnesses who want to hang my cli-
ent," Curtin told Roosevelt.
. "Counsel, you are giving the wrong
impression," t h e Governor said,
"You'll find most of the major wit-
nesses before the committee were the
Mayor's friends.
Roosevelt finally told the Mayor's
legal adviser:
"I'll give you all the subpenas you
want. We'll start at 9:30 tomorrow
and continue all day Friday and
convene again on Monday.'\
Says Governor is Prejudiced
Curtin, during a heated argument
with the Governor, said: "It seems,"
Mr. Roosevelt is "taking sides" in the
hearing.
Curtin had declined to present wit-
nesses to support the Mayor's con-
tention that he is innocent of wrong-
doing until "the other side" pre-
sented all its witnesses.
"There are no sides in this case,"
observed Roosevelt, stressing the
"'no."~
Italy Will Cut
130,000 Tns
Of Battleships
Vessels Will Be Stripped
Of Crews Immediately
In Economy Move
ROME, Aug. 17.-(P)-Approxi-
mately 130,000 tons of Italy's fight-
ing ships will be retired beginning
Aug. 25 as a result of an 'economy
move and a sweeping reorganization
of the Italian fleet.
These will include two battleships,
three heavy cruisers, nine light cruis-
ers, 25 destroyers and a dozen sub-
marines, all reasonably old but still
within the age limit.
The ships will be stripped of their
crews but not immediately scrapped.
In this condition they will continue
to serve as a bartering point when
the World Disarmament Conference
I resumes its discussions at Geneva
this fall. Caretakers will be .left
aboard the ships to keep them from
deteriorating.
The battleships are the Andrea

By MARIE HARTWIG'
Golf is a very pop'Ular game forI
many reasons. The majority of peo-
ple play because of the companion-
ship it affords and for the fact that
it takes them out of doors. The peo-
ple who play golf in good form are
few.
The game challenges an individual]
each time he plays. There is always
the possibility of chopping off a
stroke now and then and bringing
one's score closer to the coveted par
figures. Once in a while, one will
run across a person whose determin-
ation to get into par figures becomes
so great that all possible pleasure
disappears. The people who get angry
at a golf club are few and far be-
tween. A sense of humor generally
saves the day.
Courtesy is an outstanding factor
in golf. The opportunities to think
of the other fellow first are numer-
ous.

clearer understanding of the princi-
ples involved. After hours of prac-
ticing the desired result usually be-;
gins to come. Often a slice will de-
velop almost out of a clear sky and;
any amount of effort on the part of,
the individual to correct himself is
to no avail. Then is the time to go
back to the professional and have
him diagnose the case. There are
so many factors which may either
singly or collectively be the cause
of a slice that even a professional
will have to observe and work to de-
tect the cause.
Today every possible means have
been taken to perfect the golf equip-
ment. If blame is to be put anywhere
for a poor game, it usually falls on
the golfer himself. The first golf ball
was made of a smooth leather cover
stuffed with feathers. It used to soar
and dip in the air due to its smooth
surface, and was nicknamed "Pega-
sus" because of its half bird, half
horse characteristics.
