Jwyer Is Appointed Representative
for Year on Student
Added impetus was given to the pro-
posed Union Fair yesterday when the
Board in Control of Athletics granted
the Union permission to use the new
Yost Field house for the affair.
The proceeds from the Fair are to-
be used for the completion of the
Union swimming pool. The matter of
the Fair will now be referred to the
Senate Committee on Student Affairs
for final consideration. If the plan
is approved by them, definite steps
will be taken to- hold the event.
Approval of the plan for raising
funds to finance the trips of the band
to the Wisconsin and Iowa games was
also given by the Board. Permission
was granted to pass buckets for money
among the crowds entering Ferry
field Saturday for the Ohio State
game. Men passing, buckets will be
allowed to stand outside the gates of
the fields and on the inside by the en-
trances. Permission was not given to
collect money in the stands.
Other business transacted consisted
of the appointment of Stewart R. Boy-
er, '24L, as representative of the Board
on the Student council. This is in ac-
cordance with the new constitutionof

Illinois Strike Threatening
This strike was called for on Sept.
22 and threatened to paralyze the
whole business and government of 11-
linois. People from the steel produc-
ing centers of the state then called
upon Governor Lowden for military
protection of person and property.
Waukegan, Ill., at that time was
particularly anxious. "I commission-
ed the attorney general with instruc-
tions to the people in the strike dis-
tricts urging them to exercise control
through their own authorities,' said
Mr. Lowden. "I sent out my own ex-
perts to swear in special officers.
People Settled It
"The result was," continued Mr.
Lowden, "that the people solved the
problem themselves. When the strike
ended I had found it unnecessary to
call out a single soldier and the peo-
ple had gained a new confidence in
themselves, while other states suffer-
ed under martial law."
"Civil government in Oklahoma
seems to have collapsed," added Mr.
Lowden, "and any such strife is a very
serious matter concerning the entire
nation. I believe the success of the
American people has been due to their
genius to meet such crises by them-

Hundreds Battle Flames as Inferno

Pasadena, Cal., Oct. 13--(By A.P.)---
A forest fire and brush fire which for
a time today threatened four or five
communities in this section was un--
der control in the Gorge of Sycamore
canyon tonight.
Only one large par-aIly completed
home on Derduzo Knoll and a half
a dozen small houses were destroyed
although the flames, fanned by a high
wind, swept over several thousand
acres in a few hours.
The fire started on the outskirts of
Mt. Rose and for a time threatened
that town as well as La Crescenta andl
La Canda, but instead, skirted the
edges and turned down Sycamore ean-
yon. Sometimes it leaped forward a
half mile at a time. Many summer
homes and cabins near Glenndale
were abandoned as the flames advanc-
Hundreds of men were thrown in-
to the line established in Sycamore
Canyon to battle the blaze, and late in
the afternoon when the wind calmed
down dynamite was resorted to.

Vanderbilt university's football team
entertained the Michigan gridiron
squad at Nashville one year ago, and
in a hard fought game which the
South will long remember held the
powerful Wolverines to a scoreless tie,
the only game which Michigan failed
to wtn last year. Yesterday Vander-
bilt came to Ann Arbor and almost
succeeded in repeating their previous
performance, the Maize and Blue win-
ning by the narrow margin of three
points, the single score of the game
coming as a result of a place kick by
Jack Blott from the 20 yard line.
The game which was as close and
hotly contested as it is possible for
a. football game to be, found the
Michigan eleven forced to face an ag-
gregaton which outweighed it almost
10 pounds to the man, and which was
a practically veteran team. Coach
Dan McGugin had pointed the Com-
modore squad for the Michigan game,
and the men were determined to
show that the result of last year's tilt
was not a fluke. And they showed it,
Kipke and Ryan Use Punts
Both team found that their forward
walls worked better on defense than
on the attack, and consequently the
game was turned into a kicking duel
between Captain Harry Kipke and
Ryan, with the odds slightly favoring
the Vanderbilt punter. Both teams
punted consistently on second and
third downs so that the line of scrim-
magd was changed all the time from
4one end of the field to the other.
Michigan opened the first quarter by
-receiving the kick-off but Kipke punt-
ed deep into Vanderbilt territory on
the first down. This started an ex-
change of punts which failed to gain
any material advantage for either team
until the latter part of the quarter
when Blott recovered a fumble for
Michigan on the Vanderbilt 20 yard
line. With the first chance for a
touchdown in sight, Steger failed to
gain through the line but Kipke fol-
lowed with a 7 yard gain off' right
tackle. Kipke added 2 more on the
nex play making it fourth down on
the Vanderbilt 11 yard line with one
yard to go for first down. Miller,
however, failed to make the necessary
yard on a line plunge and the ball
went to Vanderbilt on her 11 yard line
'as thq quarter ended.
Blott Makes Place Kick
Michigan's solitary score came in
the early part of the second period.
