Says His Idea of Successor For Po-
sitiou Is Man Who "Has Confi-
deuce of People"
Detroit, Nov. 20.-Communica-
tions urging the appointment of
President Marion L. Burton, of th'e
University of Michigan, to the
seat left vacant in the United
States Senate by the resignation
of Truman II. Newberry were re-
ceived at the Governor's oice
during the day.
(By Associated Press)
Detroit, Nov. 20.-Senatorial quali-
fications of no fewer than a dozen
men, prominent in the public life of
Michigan, were being scanned today
by Governor Alex J. Groesbeck, seek-
ing a successor' to Truman H. New-
berry, who Sunday tendered his res-
ignation as senator from the state.
The governor meanwhile announced
that he intended to withhold a deci-
sion until all interested parties had
had an opportunity to be heard, and
that he did not propose to have Mich-
igan represented in the upper house
of Congress by a "figurehead". In
these words the governor took oc-
casion to put at rest reports that be
might appoint someone who could be
counted upon not to iseek re-election
at 1924, so that the chief executive
himself could make the race for sen-
atorial honors.
Should Have Public Confideice
"It has been said," the governor de-
clared, "that I should appoint some-
one who will not run for re-election in
1924, so that I could run myself. I
shall do no such thing."'
The governor's idea for the man re-
quired for the post is that he should
have the confidence of the public. "He
should be something besides a mere
dispenser of patronage," he declar-
Although the governor declined to
even intimate who had been under
consideration already for Newberry's
seat, the names most commonly heard
today were those of Charles B. War-
ren, at present American ambassador
to Japan, former Senator William Al-
den Smith of Grand Rapids, W. W.
Potter, state fuel administrator, and
John S. Haggert'y, Wayne county re-
publican leader. Later today another
name was advanced, that of President
Marion L. Burton, of the University
of Michigan.
Couzens Will Not Talk G
Mayor James Couzens of Detroit al-
so was drawn into the speculation to
day. He declined, however, to dis-
cuss the possibility or even affirm or
deny that the post had been offered
State senator Herbert F. Bakr and
Representative Patrich H. Kelly, un-
successful candidates in the recent
primary election, were very promin-
ently mentioned.

Calixco, Calif., Nov. 20.-Seventy
persons lost their lives in the sink-
ing of the steamer Topolodanto, in the
Gulf of California near the mouth of
the Colorado river early yesterday,
according to reports of the disaster
which reached here today.
Late last night but two bodies had
been recovered, a won,an and a child
hugged to her breast. Others were ex-
pected to be found at low tide this
afternoon. Twenty-four survivors, in.
eluding nine women and six chil-
dren, are on their way to Mexicali,
Lower California. -

The Topolodanto, a craft of 36 tons
displacement, went down when brok-
en in two in the middle by a wall of
water 20 feet high which followed the
tide from the river. Small boats were
on the way to Sonora shores today
with searching parties. One of the
craft on the way to the scene with
four seamen turned over. The steam-
er Guaymas was called by wireless
to the scene of the wreck, and went
to the rescue, saving several per-

Says He

Will (Conside
Would Alter His
latlons Here


With the menion of President Mar-
ion L. Burton as a possible success-
>r to Truman H. Newberry, whose res-
ignation as junior senator from Mich-
igan was accepted yesterday by Gov.
Alexander J. Groesbeck, .the Univer-
sity may be in a position for the sec-
ond time in its history to send its
president to a position of national im-
Between 1890 and 1900 President
James B. Angell was offered the posi-
tion of minister to China and Turkey,
both of which he accepted, at the same
time retaining his position as presi-
dent of the University.
When he was informed that his
name had been mentioned in connec-
tion with the appointment, President
Burton said,
Will Stay With University
"I will consider nothing which will
alter my position with the University."
In this simple statement ,President
Burton implies that he prefers to con-
tinue his work as head of the Uni-
versity rather than accept a tempor-
ary position of public servicp, if. it
means- the sacrifice of the former to
the latter. The seat in the Senate
wou d be of two years ,duration, at
the end of which time another eec-
tion would name the successor of the
man who is appointed to finish New-
berry's term.
Regardless of President Burton's
decision to refuse'any position which
would terminate his. connection with
the University, a plan might be devis-
ed whereby he could serve. the short
period which remains to Newbrry's
successor and at thesame time spend
a reasonable portion of his time in
Ann Arbor in: the administration of
University affars.
With an appropriation sufficiently
large to carry on the building pro-
gram already granted by the legisla-
ture, a large number of the buildings
already under construction and a Uni-
versity administrative policy firmly
established such an arrangement
might be effected in the event that
President Burton is. called upon by
Governor Groesbeck to fill the seat
in the Senate..
The governor's statement Sunday
that the selection of a man capahle
and fitted to fill the vacancy was a dif-
ficult problem for. him to solve will
undoubtedly be regarded as an en-
hancement of the prestige which will
accompany the appointment.
Grid Graph Will.
Show Gopher Game
Returns from the Michigan-Minne-
sota game next Saturday will be
shown in Hill auditorium on the grid
graph,. similar to the way the Vander-
bilt and Ohio State ganes were repro-
duced earlier in the season.
A special wire from Minneapolis
will bring the returns through play
by pay as they occur. These plays
will then be shown on the large elec(
tric score board by means of the'lights
representing the- ball, players and
play used. Other lights mark off the
board into yard lines so that the ac-
tual position of the ball on the field
is known at all times.
It is planned to have the band and
cheer leaders in the auditorium if they
do not go with the team. Tickets for
the affair will sell for 50 cents the
money going to support the Alumni
association. They will be on sale be-
ginning t'omorrow at Huston's, Wahr's,
Graham's, Alumni hall, and the Union.

Music, Cheering, and Speakng To Be
Short But Snappy Is
Tremendous interest in the Mine-
sota game on the part of the student
body and alumni has resulted in an
emergency pep meeting being called
at 7 o'clock tonight in Hill auditor-
ium. The Assembly will be in the
nature of a celebration of the Wis-
consin victory and a "Championship'i
pep meeting for the coming Minne-
sota game.
The speakers will include Jack Kel-
ly, '24L, Thomas I. Underwood, '23L,
Captain Paul Goebel, '3E, and as-
sistant Coach Sturzenegger and the
whole program of music, cheering
and speaking will be unusually short..
Members of the football team will be
in attendance.
Meeting To Be Early
The meeting has been scheduled for
7 o'clock sharp to allow for a dress
rehearsal of the Masques play after
the -meeting. It was through a sac-
rifice by the Masques management
that the pep meeting could be call-
ed on such short notice, because of the
construction of scenery on the stage
today for the play tomorrow night.
Michigan alumni at ┬░Minneapolis
are planning a gigantic celebration
for the team, the band, and all the
Michigan rooters who make the trip.
Several telegrams have been received
urging that a good following of stu-
dents accompany the team as arrange-
ments have already been made to re-
ceive them. The alumni have gone
ahead making their plans for enters
taming a large body of student root-
ers, as they expect thousands to fo-
low their team in their last fight for
the championship.
Hopes of sending the band to the
Minnesota game next Saturday have
.not been given up as.telegrams have
been received from alumni through-
out the West assuring their support if
the students are behind the project.
The meeting tonight will be one
means of showing the interest the
students feel in this matter.

the time for signers for the special

will be determined whether the re-

Liszt. It was a fitting climax to this
second popular concert, and the com-
poser was called back repeatedly.
