Tells Democrats 'Election OCurs,
But Cautions' Against Deweyitis'
By CHARLES STEGMEIR
In a fighting speech at the Union last night, Senator Hubert
Humphrey, (D-Minn.) attacked the Republican administration calling
them a group of "tired, timid, sick, old men."
He described Secretary of State John Foster Dulles as "closer to
the Metternich tradition than any living mortal."
Speaking to an enthusiastic audience of second congressional
district Democrats, he declared, "We have this election if we don't
falter. We are engaged in a holding operation. I don't believe we are

Prof. Arthur W. Bromnage of the
University's political science depart-
ment for the Associated "Press on the
question of calling a Constitutional
Convention. That issue will appear
on the Nov. 4 ballot.)
By ARTHUR W. BROMAGE
Michigan's future will be in-
fluenced by the voters' decision in
November on whether to call a
convention to revise the state's
Constitution. This question is so
vital that the voters are assured
in the present Constitution of an
opportunity to pass on it every 16
The last time the question came
up under the mandatory rule was
in 1942 when the -country was at
war. Constitutional alterations did
not seem urgent and the decision:
was no. Although the legislators
put the question on the ballot
voluntarily in 1948, the outcome
was the same. What will happen
A Convention, once the voters
summon it, reports to them-not
to the governor, not to'the Legis-
lature. It has to be responsible to
the people, as the people have to
be responsible for calling it.
With an obligation to submit
recommendations to popular re-
ferendum, a Convention is not
just a study commission. When its
proposals are ready, a majority of
those voting on them at the popu-
lar referendum is sufficient for
their approval or rejection.
To get the changes accepted is
actually easier than to get a Con-
vention called. This is because the
Michigan Constitution requires
that, to summon the Convention,
there must be a majority of all
votes cast in the election. -

Effigy Floats on High
By JIM BENAGH
Football Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's effigy floated in a light breeze
.4 over the Diag yesterday, apparently the work of irate students in a
protest over Northwestern's victory over Michigan last Saturday.
But John Tirrell, General Secretary of Alumni Relations, said that
there was "not one" voice of dissension reported to his office against
the veteran coach.
The dummy was strung by rope from a tree in front of the
General Library from early morning to about 12:30 p.m.
- .The cloth-stuffed effigy, complete with a painted face and "Ooster-
baan" written across the front, was first seen in West Quad Sunday
Occurred for First Time
"This is the first time we have heard of anything like this happen-
ng," said Les Etter, Athletic Publicity Director, speaking for the
Athletic Department. He said the Department did not hear about the
incident until the dummy was taken down.
Oosterbaan has been head coach for 11 years and has been with
the athletic department since 1927. Tirrell was quick to quench reports
of any anti-Oosterbaan sentiment among the University's alumni.
