Junior .Injured
In Cyclone Panic
F. E. Jacob,'21, suffered a fractured
shoulder bone when caught in an inter-
urban car stampede during the cyclone
which swept across Lake Michigan
from Chicago and wrought great dam-
age in the south-central portion of
Michigan Sunday-night.
The interurban in which Jacob was
traveling was caught directly in the
path of the tornado, at St. Johns,
Mich. The car was rocked violently,
he said, and when bricks and other'
wreckage began to fly the crowd be-'
came hysterical, climbing madly into
the aisle and trampling on each other
in their attempt to reach the exits.
Jacob, describing the effect of the cy-
clone, said it destroyed everything in
a path through St. Johns one mile and
a half wide.
Many M. A. C., Albion, and Kalama-
zoo college students, as well as a few
others from the University whom Ja-
cob did not identify, were stranded
overnight, all wires being cat and all
traffic held up until Monday morting.a
Jacob, who because of the cutting of
all communication, brought news of
the accident not secured by the Asso-
ciated Press, reported one dead and
nine injured that he knew of, and
$200,000 damge in the county of Clin-
ton. The cyclone struck first west of
Lansing and continued northeat, hit-

Palm Sunday Tornado Sweeps Over
Eight States, Isolating Several
Chicago, March 29.-The death list
of the Palm Sunday tornadoes that
sweptsections of eight states Sunday
stood at 173. Telegraph and telephone
service with many isolated communi-
ties in'the Middle West had only been
partly restored tonight, and indica-
tions were that the toll of death and
destruction would be augmented.
The known dead in six central west-
ern states numbered 95 while 78 were
killed in Georgia and Alabama. The
property loss in the Chicago area
alone was estimated at six million dol-
lars while in the other states affected
the material loss was almost equally
as large.
Illinois Hit- Hardest
Illinois was the hardest hit of the
central states with 30 dead, more than
1,000 injured, and 2,000 made home-
less. , Indiana reported 28 casualties

Michigan and one each in Wisconsin
and Missouri.

Michigan from Sunday's tornado was
increased to 11 tonight with 40 in-
jured, some seriously, and property
loss estimated at approximately $2,-

lives in fram buildings in the rural
sections where they had taken refuge.
Property loss also was greatest in the
country district where the storm de-
stroyed farm buildings in its path all
the way from Muskegon and St. Johns
eastward to the vicinity of Flint. Dam-
age in the cities consisted principally
of unroofed buildings and broken

(Editor's Note:-This is the secondI
instalment of a series of short arti-I
cles covering the lives and principlest
of the presidential candidates who
will be balloted upon at the campus
straw Pote Thursday. Wherever pos-f
sible, a faculty supporter of the can-3
didate has been secured to write his
story: otherwise The Daily has com-f
piled the data. Johnson, Lowden,
Pershing, Palmer, and Edwards are
today's candidates.)
Senator Hiram Johnson, of Califor-l
nia, was born in Sacramento, Calif.,
Sept. 2, 1866. He was educated at thel
University of California, leaving in his,
junior year. He began as a shorthand
reporter, then studied law in his fa-l
ther's office, and was admitted to the
bar in 1888. He removed to San Fran-
cisco in 1902, where he was a member
of the staff of prosecuting attorneys
in the boodling uases, involving lead-
ing city officials and almost all pub-
lic utility corporations in San Fran-;
cisco. In 1908 he was selected to take;
the place of Francis J. Heney, after
the latter was shot down in court
while prosecuting Abe Ruef for brib-
ery, and secured conviction of Ruef.
He was governor of California from
1911 to 1915, and was re-elected for
1915-1919, resigning in 1917 to become
United States senator for the term
1917-1923. He was a founder of the
Progressive party, in 1912, and ran
for vice-president on that ticket.
Before and during the war he fought
for the preservation of free speec
and a free press. He demanded that
the American expedition be withdrawn,
from Russia, on the grounds that it{
was a futile and bloody adventure,
and a reversal of allied Russian pol-
icy. He became the arch-opponent of
the League of Nations, contending
that it is "a gigantic armed trust. *
* * wherein a few men sitting in
secret may control the economic des-
tinies of peoples." He maintained
that injust settlements perpetuated by
the League "contained the seeds of
many wars." He has not been fond of
reformation schemes, but of practi-
cal measures, as instanced by his
much-quoted utterance, "When I am
governor of California, I will drive
the Southern Pacific Railroad com-
pany out of every inch of power in
the politics of the state."
A. Mitchell Palmer, Democratic
candidate, was born at Moosehead,
Pa.; May 4, 1872. He graduated with
highest honors at Swarthmore in 1891,
was admitted to the bar in 1893, and
has since practiced law in Strouds-
burg, Pa. He is interested in a num-
ber of business enterprises. He serv-
ed in congress from 1909-1915. He
was a judge of the U. S. Court of
Claims in 1915, and in 1917 was ap-
pointed by President Wilson as alien
property custodian under the 'Trading
with the Enemy Act,' 'in which capac-
ity he has acted during and since the
war. He was a member of the execu-
tive committee in the Democratic na-
tional convention in 1912.
Palmer's platform is that of support
to every phase of the Wilson adminis-
tration. Known as "the fighting
Quaker" because of his religious be-
lief and belligerent qualities, he was
offered the post of secretary of war
in the original Wilson cabinet. He
was elected to congress from the
Bethlehem Steel mills district, wrote
the iron and steel schedule of the
Underwood Tariff bill, and then fought
the forces of Charles M. Schwab and
the other steel magnates and won re-

election. His re-organization of the
Democratic party of Pennsylvania was
a large factor, in the nomination of
Wilson for the presidency. His cam-
paign against the Bolsheviki and sup-
port of deportation in the "Soviet
Ark" is well known. He favors a spir-
it of internationalism as brought out
in the League; better labor condi-
tions, publicity for the issues in in-
dustrial disputes, and the checking of
the high cost of living.
Edward I. Edwards, Democratic
candidate, about whom "Who's Who"
gives no information, won the " gov-
ernorship of New Jersey in 1919 by a
14,000 majority after he had pledged
himself to keep the state as wet as
possible in spite of the nationwide pro-
hibition amendment. He stated in

Edwards, Lowden, Pershing, Palmer

his platform that he "would use all
lawful methtods to preserve inviolate
the sovereignty of the people."
His candidacy in the presidential
contest is mainly a protest against the
adoption of the prohibition amend-
ment, and he hopes to rally in his
favor all those who wish its repeal or
a less stringent application of its pro-
(By Regent Junius E. Beal)
The United States and its people are
having an 'argy of spending money.
Currency and credits are tremendous-
ly inflated. The capital is crowded
with a horde of salary-drawers step-
ping on each others' heels until they
have to put them in their desks for
safety to heels and corns.
Now what do we most need in a
president? Is it not one who pro-
poses to put a business administra-
tion into force, with 'a budget; who
will cut off useless boards, bureaus
and commissions; who will retrench
so taxes may be cut down?
That must be done first, and it will
take a strong man to do it-a man
unafraid, skilled, diplomatic, and re-
sourceful in meeting arguments that
it cannot be done. He must be ex-
perienced in that sort of thing, of ad-
minstrative ability already shown so
it can be recognized and relied upon
by all.
This points " unerringly to Frank
0. Lowden, Republican candidate dnd
the great war governor of oui neigh-
bor, Illinois. That is what he did for
his state as soon as the war was
over, in cutting down taxes by $8,000,-
000 and dropping 125 boards and,
commissions. That was a brave
thing to do when all those board
members might have been welded in-
to a mighty political machine for
Frank O. Lowden's candidacy strong-
ly appeals to college men who like to"
see a lad win out in fighting for his
college education. It appeals to Michi-
gan more especially because years
ago he gave the foundation for the
Northern Oratorical league, which

ning oftener than any of the other
His record is clean, his ability is
proven, his courage is unquestioned,
his fitness is unusual, his experience
on the farm, in teaching, in law, in
governing, in statecraft,. all combine
to make him such that one need not
look further for a president to follow
McKinley, Roosevelt and Taft.

General John J.
mander in chief of1
peditionary forces

. Pershing, com-
the American Ex-
and Republican

presidential candidate, was born in
Missouri in 1860 and was graduated
from the United States Military acad-
emy in 1886.
Throughout his service he has been,
as per the army term, ' field soldier,"
which is simply another way of saying
that he has consistently sought active
service whenever active service was
to be had. Thus' we find him' taking
part under Crook and Miles, those
famous old. Indian fighters, in the
Geronimo and Sitting Bull campaigns
of the late eighties. In the former,
under-Miles, he was mentioned in dis-
patches for marching his troop 140
miles in 46 hours and bringing it in
with every animal in good condition.
Pershing's most distinguished serv-
ice, prior to the World War, was rend-
ered in the Moro provinces of the Phil-
ippines. He spent a number of years
in command of these provinces and
succeeded, by the judicial use of the
sword and statesmanship, in bring-
ing them to a proper sense of respect
for the American flag and of loyalty
to our government, something that the
Spaniards could not do during all
their years of occupation.
