ieman From Michigan" Has
rd of 12 Years' Standing
n Law Making Body
of Nation.

Daily For MichiganI

Michigan has led in both houses of
Congress for twelve years.
The University of Michigan has edu-
cated more members of the present
House of Representatives than any
other university in the land. This is
not the record of a single year, for,
both in the upper and lower houses
of the national legislative body, Mich-
igan has held this record for the past
twelvo years.
Of the representatives sent by the
various states to the 63rd annual con-
gress, 23 received their first training
in p blic life in the class rooms, and
on the campus of the nation's interna-
tional state university, Michigan.
In the long van of universities and
schools, which trail Michigan in these
unique statistics, Harvard stands next
with 17 alumni in the lower house. Af-
ter Harvard follow the University of
Virginia with ten, Yale.with nine, and
Wisconsin and Minnesota are tied for
fifth place with five apiece. Columbia,
Washington and Lee and the Cincin-
nati school of law follow with four
apiece. Seven of the larger schools
including Princeton, Cornell, Dart-
mouth and Illinois are closely group-
ed, with one and two apiece, and even
our little sister and cohort, Ypsilanti
Normal has asserted her rights, and
sent an alumnus to congress.
Guy T. Helvering, '06L, one of the
youngest members of the house, is
serving his first term. He was presi-
dent of his class in the senior year.
Six of the congressmen from the state
of Michigan attended their state uni-
versity. Patrick H. Kelley, 'OOL, for-
mer state superintendent of public in-
struction, and lieutenant governor;
Samuel W. Beakes, '83L, former may-
or and postmaster of Ann Arbor; J. M.
C. Smith, who attended the university
in 1897; Carl E. Mapes, '99L, former
state senator for two terms; Louis C.
Cramton, of the same class and James
C. McLaughlin, '83L, are with but two
exceptions, serving their first term in
the congressional body. Congressman
Smith is now serving his second, and
Congressman McLaughlin his fourth
Charles A. Lidenbergh, '83L, repre-
sents; the people of Minnesota, and
Williami P. Borland, '92, is now
serving his third term. Moses P. Kin-
kald, '76L, president of his class in
'76, is serving his sixth term from the
state of Nebraska.
Edward T. Taylor, '84L, is now serv-
ing his third term in the congressional
body. He was president of his class
in his graduate year, and held the
same office in the Rocky Mountain1
alumni association of the University
of Michigan. H. Robert Fowler, '85L,
is now serving his second term, and'
William E. Cox, 'SL, has been re-
turned by his constituents to Wash-
ington for the fourth time,
James W. Good, _'93., is serving his
third term in the house asrepresen-
tative of the people of Iowa, and Dan-
iel R. Anthony, '91L, former news-
paper man, is serving his fourth term
from the state of Kansas.
From Pennsylvania comes James]
F. Burke, '92L. He is serving his fifth<
term in the house and, while in school,1
organized the republican league of
college clubs in the year that Groverf
Cleveland was candidate for president.
The idea which he thus originated, has
rapidly spread to most of the larger 1
universities in the land.
The people of South Dakota have'
elected Even W. Martin, '80L, for the'
seventh time as their representative at
Washington. He was president of his
class In the graduating year. Frank I
W. Plumley, who spent one year at the
university, is now in his third term in
the lower house.

Michael F. Conroy, '96L, is now serv-
ing his third term from New York,

Trainer Stephen Farrell will speak
to the men in the various gymnasium
classes next week, in the hope of get-
ting a large number of freshmbn out
for track practice. While there is
much known material among this
year's freshmen, Farrell hopes to get
a larger number of green men out.
The trainer will be on hand at the
gymnasium to direct the preliminary
work of the men, and anyone who is
interested, should see him concerning
the indoor training.
Six vaudeville acts will constitute
the program after the cabaret chicken
dinner at the Michigan Union next
Wednesday. It is a distinct departure
from any union program ever offered.
The skit, "Just Over," to be presented
by the Mimes contains some spicy ele-
ments. The playlet is set at the im-
migrant station at Ellis Island.
A student orchestra will produce
several bits of melody, and the "gold
tooth quartet," led by Waldo Fel-
lows, 14, promises a new repertoire.
Charles B. Sikes, '16E, will give a bar-
itone solo, and a violin selection has
been promised.,
The Cosmopolitan dlub will also give
a skit, to be rehearsed at a meeting
of the club Thursday. The members
of the cast will appear in native cos-
tume. The foreigners will also give
a musical selection, probably featured
by the Hawaiian trio.
Tickets for the dinner will be in the
hands of the finance committee Fri-
day, and will also be on sale at the
Union desk. The committee has been1

Since applicants for positions as
teachers will be required to hand in
photographs to the committee on ap-
pointments, it has been suggested by
the management of the Michiganen-
sian that those who are seniors would
profit by having their pictures taken
for the 1914 year-book at the same
time. This would obviate the necessi-
ty of having two sittings, and would
at the same time simplify matters for
the photographers.
Several suggestions have already
been received at the Union for the
Christmas celebration, to be held
Thursday night, December 18. A
minstrel show will be presented in two
performances, with a series of vaude-
ville stunts during the intermission.
The committee still needs minstrel
scenarios, jokes and music. These
must be handed in at the Union by
next Monday.
The celebration will be free for Un-
ion members. Several features will
be presented in addition to the pro-
gram, including Christmas trees, and
refreshments appropriate to the Yule-
tide season. The management wishes
as many students as possible to offer

Dr. Newell Dwight Hillls, the most
distinguished preacher in America,
will lecture before the Oratorical as-
sociation in University Hall, Monday,
at 8:00 o'clock. Dr. Hillis is pastor
of the historic Plymouth church, a po-
sitioin formerly held by Henry Ward
Beecher and Dr. Lyman Abbott, edi-
tor of the Outlook magazine.
Dr. Hillis is well known as an au-
thor. Among his published works are
"The Quest of Happiness," "The For-
tune of the Republic," and "The Quest
of John Chapman." His most recent
book is "Great Men as Prophets of a
New Era."
Course tickets to the oratorical as-
sociation lectures will admit to this
number. An extra lecture has been
obtained for December 8, when Kiyo
Sue Inui, '06, noted Japanese orator
will speak.

Above, The Michigan Daily presents
its selections for first and second All-
Class football elevens. The men for
the various positions were chosen on
the basis of individual merit, as ex-
emplified during the several contests,
by impartial critics, who witnessed
every game of the inter-class series.
Marsh and La Londe were given the
end positions on the first elevens, be-
cause of their strong defensive work.
La Londe, who played halfback dur-
ing the season, was also a strong fac-
tor in the brilliant offense of the sen-
ior engineers. Burton, considered the
best forward pass launcher on any
team and a consistent performer at
breaking up interference, was given
end positions on the first eleven, be
with Pierce, who did yeoman work for
the senior lits.
A host of good material made the
picking of the tackles a difficult task,
but Keliher and Gates were finally
awarded the first team honors. The
men chosen for tie tackle jobs on the
second team, Bauman and Crawford,
were men of excellent football ability.
Both, however, seemed to lack the ag-
gressiveness of Keliher and Gates.
In selecting the guards, a new diffi-
culty was met. The guard positions
were not played in a manner up to the
comparative standard of other posi-
tions. Furstenburg and Shepard were
by far the best men at their positions,
and were a.warded places on the first
team. Curry, a tackle, and Mapes,
were the men who received the sec-
ond team mention.

The faculty of the law department
will meet at 4:00 o'clock this after-

which have been brought against stu-

upon individual cases of misconduct,

(The Michigan Daily assumes to me-
sponsibility for sentiments express-
ed in communications.)
Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
In yesterday's Daily, a communicant
tries to shift some of the responsibili-
ty for the Penn game riot on to Mayor
MacKenzie, because he did not close
ill saloons at 6:00 o'clock. Reasoning
along the same lines, we conclude
that when a man's house is broken
into and robbed, he is himself to blame
for the crime, because he had not made
his house burglar proof.
In regard to the student council,
why should they be held responsible
for the misconduct of individual stu-
dents? Was the council intended to
be sort of a nurse maid or governess
to amuse and look after each student?
If each student is not absolutely re-
sponsible for his misdeeds, then he
ought to be at a state institution
other than the university. -
Perhaps it is a sign that he is an
educated and cultured man, if a stu-
dent gets drunk, destroys property,
and in general acts like a rowdy? It
creates admiration and pride in the
hearts of those who are paying for his
education, to see him setting- such an
illustrious example of good citizen-
ship, culture, and refinement to the ig-
norant laboring classes. As a matter
of fact, he should be severely punish-
ed by the courts. If some ignorant,
misguided foreigner should act as
these students did, he would be sum-
marily dealt with by the court. Then
why shouldn't the student be punished
more severely? The idea that because
they are students they are not subject
to the same laws as other people ought
to be jolted out of their heads by jail,
sentences or fines, and the sooner{
this is done the better it would be, for
them. H. D. '-14E.
