topic upon which former Governor

lecurer on the Oratorical association

will speak at 8 o'clock tonight in Hill
Saved State Money
Mr. Lowden was governor of Illinois
from 1917 to 1921 and during that time
is said to have introduced new meth-
ods of state finance that saved the
state large sums of money. Previous
to being the state executive of Illinois,
Governor Lowden was in Congress for
six years serving through the fifty-
ninth, sixtieth and six-first Congresses.
As a member of the Republican party,
he has also acted on the national exec-
utive committee and at the last con-
vention was one of the most promising
candidates for nomination for the pres-
In addition to being known as a
statesman and politician, Governor
Lovwden gained prominence as a pro-
fessor and soldier. He was professor
of law in Northwestern university in
1899 and the year before that was
Lieutenant-Colonel of the First Infan-
try of the Illinois National Guard.
Graduates from Iowa
Governor Lowden graduated from
the University of Iowa in 1885 as vale-
dictorian of his class and was given
the same honor at the University of
Chicago in 1887 when he obtained his
L.L. B.
He is said to be a speaker of un-
usual power and personality, and a
man whose thoughts on future changes
in the methods of administration of
our government are well-worth hear-
Single admission tickets for the lec-
ture tonight will be sold for $1, while
reserved seats for the entire series
may be purchased for $3, $2.50 and $2.
Dr. Charles A. McMurry, '87, profes-
sor of elementary education at Pea-
the principal sneaker at the first meet-
body college, Nashville, Tenn., will be
ing of Phi Delta Kappa, national hon-
orary education society, to be held at
6 o'clock tonight in the Union. The
subject of his address will be "Build-
ing the Curriculum."
He will also address an assembly
of the School of Education at 4 o'clock
this afternoon in room 203 Tappan
hall. Following the assembly the sen-
ior and junior classes will be organ-
ized under the direction of the Stu-
dent council, and election of officers
for the coming year will take place.
Professor McMurry is the father of
Kenneth C. McMurry, assistant profes-
sor of Geography in the University.

The elder McMurry is one of the pion-
eers of educational work in the coun-
try and has written many books deal-
ing with special phases of educational
method. Among his works are "Spe-
cial Methods of Geography," and his
latest book, "How to Organize a Cur-

Faculty Opinion Varies On
Ruling Against Wickersham

Prominent members of the Univer-
sity faculty yesterday expressed theira
attitude toward the use of Hill audi-(
torium and other University buildingsI
for the discussion of public questions1
by qualified speakers.
Consensus of opinion seeimed to op-
pose the University ruling which hasi
been placed in the %melight in the
past few days by the refusal of the
Board of Regents to permit the hon-
orable George W. Wickershan, former
United States Attorney General to
speak Nov. 3 in iill auditorium under
the auspices of the local division of the
l..eague of Nations Non-Partisan asso-
1isemsiion Esse'ntial
It is felt by several of the men in-,
terviewed by The Daily that anything
that will encourage intelligent discus-
sion of public q;.estio's by the Univer-
sity community should be encouraged.
On the other hzr) two members of
the faculty feel that to permt even a
man c i Cslini : tc speali on a.;us-
tion of political moment would open
the door for a coatinmous stream of
"stumip" orators, wishing to air their
views in University atmosphere.
Prof. Francis W. Kelsey, head of the
Latin department, believes that Mr.
j Wickersham, or any other man of
eqlugl prominenceshould be permit-

American people are astonishingly ig-
norant of European affairs and all
questions of national and international
policy, and any move to inform them
further on any question is worthy of
sympathetic consideration. This lec-
ture is not an attempt to secure votes
for any particualr policy, but to in-
form people on a question of para-
mount importance in world politics."
Hobbs Opposes Ruling
In accord with this view are Prof.
W. H. Hobbs, head of the geology de-
partment, and Prof. T. I1. Reed, of the
political science department. Profess-
or Hobbs, although an opponent of the
League of Nations policy since its first
inception by ex-President Wilson,
thinks that Mr. *Wickersham should be
permitted to use the hall. "Univer-
sity buildings should be used for the

Oklahoma City, Orla., Oct. 11.--Gov.
J. C. Walton called on the Oklahoma
legislature today to enact an anti-Ku
Klux Klan law to save the state from
the disaster lie says it faces through
existence of the secret organization.
In his address, read for him at the
opening of an extraordinary session
of the assembly the executive charged
the klan with responsibility for hun-
dreds of outrages and punctuated his
remarks by Iaying before the law-
makers transcripts-of altestimony
adduced by military courts of inquiry,
which, under his proclamation of mar-
tial law, investigated mob violence and
masked depredations in the state. He
requested the legislators to examine
the record and then publish it.
"This all powerful and most de-
moralizing 'super-government' is un-
dermining the very cornerstone and
foundation of our government and
sapping the lifeblood of our citizen-
ship,' Gov. Walton declaed. "It must
Oither be killed or the government it-
self must finally give way to anarchy
and revolution. There is no alterna-
tive or middle ground."
Asks Protection
The governor reviewed at length the
chain of events which have kept the
state in turmoil for a month and con-
eluded his message with a plea that
the legislature immediately pass a
bill, which he himself has prepared,
"that the people may be protected for..
ever in their person, property and fun-
dam ental liberties."
"The conflict between the visible
and invisible government must be
brought to a close with a complete
victory for the visible government,
or Oklahoma will face indefinite tur-
moil and strife, the results of which
are bound to be disastrous," he said.
"This invisible, insidious and ter-
rorizing empire represents in an ex-
