Regents' Refusal to Allow Speaker to
Talk in Hill Auditorium
Cause of Action
Action arising from the refusal of
the Regents of the University to allow
George W. Wickersham, president of
the Non-Partisan League of Nations
association of the United States, to
speak in Hill auditorium was brought
to light at a recent meeting of the
Michigan chapter of the American As-
sociation of University Professors.
The situation, as explained yester-
day by Prof. Jesse S. Reeves of the
political science department, who is
president of the Michigan chapter of,
the professors' association, is as fol-
Will Consider Situation
"At a meeting of the Michigan chap-
ter held recently it was decided to ap-
point a committee to consider from an
academic point of view what might be
thought to be for the best interest of
the academic community as a whole,
including both faculty and students,
with reference to the free and full dis-
cussion of important present day sub-
jects and the use of University build-
ings for that purpose.
The committee, which has not yet
been appointed but will be chosen
soon, will consider the whole subject
because of the refusal by the Regents'
of the University to grant a request
that the Honorable George W. Wicker-
sham should speak in Hill auditorium
upon the general subject of the
League of Nations."
Regents Refuse Request
According to Shirley W. Smith, sec-'
retary of the University, the Regents
at their meeting last week refused to
permit Mr. Wickersham to speak in1
Hill auditorium. He was to have been
brought here under the auspices of
the local organization of the League of'
Nations Non-Partisan association.
The request was refused on the'
grounds that if the permission was
granted there would be the danger of
allowing a University building to be
used for the propagation of political
policies and that if such a practice
was once started the requests for the
use of buildings for that purpose would
unquestionably be numerous. The Re-
gents have at all times been against
allowing University buildings to be
used for partisan political gatherings.
Women To Receive
Athletic Awards
"M" sweaters and numerals will be
awarded this year to University wo-
men in somewhat the same manner
they are given to the men, according
to the plan 'which the physical educa-
tion department is now working out.
Sweaters for honor points have been
given in the past to women, but the
system of awarding them was not sim-
ilar to the one usd by the mn.'
Although the plan is not yet com-
pleted, one of the new features of it
will probably 'be the possibility o
winning numerals or sweaters fort

A call for an extraordinary session of

J. C. Walton.
Simultaneouly a statement was made
public by Aldrick Blake, executive
councellor, declaring that "the gov-
ernor is ready" and that he is "eager
to meet the legislature." The govern-

The call indicated that evidence in-
duced by military courts of enquiry
throughout the state would 'be placed

that "the call indicates that martial
law will be liften soon."

Although the Clement's library will
be available for study to graduate stu-
dents only whose interest is mainly
centered on historical research, the
undergraduates ar'e by no means ex-
cluded from its prec'ncts. On the
contrary, they arc urged to inspect it.
Dr. Randolph G. Adams, the cus-
todian of the Clements library, asserts,
"The collection of John Carter
Brown at Brown University and that
of Henry Huntingdon at Pasadena,
Cal. are similar in some resi)ects to
the Clements library, but there is none'
in the Middle West that can in any
way compare with it. The University,
is exceptionally fortunate in having

United States. These authoritative and

Ensian Pictures

Disllaying a ragged brand of foot-
ball, Michigan's 1923 Varsity grid-
iron team opened its season with . a
36-0 victory over Case Scientific
School yesterday afternoon on Ferry
field in an unusually slow contest.
It was about the same type of
game that usually opens the year for
the Wolverines except that Coach
Yost's men did not show the same
ability as they have during the pre-
vious few years. Their playing was
far below that of a year ago, and
showed that the Varsity coaches have
many rough spots to take off the dif-
ferent members of the squad within
the coming week.
The Maize and Blue had flashes of
brilliance but in general the game was
typical of an opening contest in which
the prevailing element is raggedness.
One of the bright spots of the game
was the playing of Herb Steger in the
backfield. Twice the Oak Park boy
grabbed a forward pass and tore
across the goal line for a touchdown,
giving a wonderful exhibition of open
field running, and his other score
coming as a result of a beautiful 60-
yard run. Herrnstein also made a
pretty 33-yard run for a score,
through most of the Case eleven.
End Runs and Passes Used
The Varsity was compelled to resort
almost entirely to end runs and for-
ward passes owing to the inability of
the practically veteran line to make
a hole for plunging. Miller made some
nice line smashes but was forced to
make his own holes, as most of the
time the forward wall failed to open
up for him. Time after time in the
early part of the tilt Uteritz would
send a man through' the'- line only to
have him fail to get past the point
of scrimmage.
Kipke Gets Best of Punting
Captain Harry Kipke appeared to be
in old time form, his drop kick being
one of the features of the game.
Kipke who had been replaced by les-
ton at the beginning of the third
quarter, was again sent into the game
with the ball on the 40-yard line and
on the next play booted the ball from
the 48-yard line directly between the
goal posts. His punting was excel-
lent, the kicks averaging around 45
yards, and his running was responsi-
ble-for many of the gains of the Var-
sity. If there had been more blocking
on the line, Kipke and all the other
backfield men would have made more
substantial gains. The line would let
the opposing line sift through, and
several times the runner would be
thrown before he could even get away
to a start.
his own 38 yard line. Kipke then
went hrough Takle for 8 yards and
Miller made first down through the
line. On the following plays Michfgan
was penalized for off side. Kipke then
kicked to Hall who fumbled and Cur-
ran recovered for the Maize and Blue
on the Case 37 yard line. Steger
