A statement in the interview

as a social impropriety, he has

struck with the liberality of A-

makes it possible for students to
earn their own way by manual
labor without in the least sacri-

He has been delighted with
the dignity and simplicity with
which American students per-

Court Writ Restrains Ex-Governor!
From Interference With'
Oklahoma City, Okla., Oct. 25.-
Lieutenant Governor M. E. Grapp was
declared acting governor of Olklahoma'
in a decision of the state supreme
court late today making permhanent ai
writ of prohibition against Gov. J. A.
Walton and District Judge T. C. 1
Chambers, Sr., which restrains them
from interfering with the Lieutenant
Governor's administration of the office.i
The court announced its decision
formally after a brief conference fol-
lowing an afternoon of argument. The'
decision, it was explained, made the
writ effective against J. C. Walton as
an individual and not a governor.
Judge Chambers was enjoined in his'
official capacity as judge. The vote
of the court was five to four.
The decision sustains a resolution,
adopted by the state senate suspend-
ing Governor Walton during his Im-
peachment trial and nullifies an in-
junction obtained by the governor in
Judge Chambers' court which would
have prevented the Lieutenant Gov-
ernor from becoming active governor.
Notified of the court's action Gov-
ernor Walton declared that he intend-
ed to "continue the fight". He de-
clined to indicate his future course,
saying that whatever he does is "up
to my attorney". He refused to issue
a formal statement.
Comedy Club
Comedy club will present the sec-
ond of its four annual programs at
Sarah Caswell Angell hall, Wednesday
night, November 14. The bill will in-
elude two one-act plays:.
"Op-O-My-Thumb" by Frederick
Fenn and Robert Pryce, made famous
by Maude Adams, and "Fancy Free" I
by Stanley Houghton, a comedy-sa-
tire of English society.
This series of plays is under the di-
rection of Donald E. L. Snyder, '25,
whose clever interpretation of "The
Dreamy Kid" was largely responsible
for the success of Comedy club's last
program. The performance will be
open to the public.
Dodos Will Present Frost Play
"A Way Out", a one-act play writ-
ten by Robert Frost, will be presented
soon by the Dodos. The date has not
bbeen set. A. R. Morris, instructor in
the Rhetoric department, has been se-
lected to coach the play.

Expressing by voice and action their
appreciation of the thought and pur
>ose of the meeting, more than 4000
aen and women representatives of the
entire student body, gathered last
light in Hill auditorium to observe
dichigan's sixth annual Traditions
ight ceremony. According to custom,
he freshmen were the guests of the
vening and in the presence of mem-
>ers of the upper classes were oficial-
y entrusted with the keeping of time-
ion ored traditions of the university.
Jack Kelly, '25L, president of the
Student council was introduced by
Donald C. McCabe, '24, master of cer-
,monies, as the first speaker of the
vening. Enlarging upon unwritten
;raditions the representative of the
tudent body laid before his hearers
tn outline of the customs dear to all
Iichigan men. Of the unwitten "
ules democracy was characterized as
he first and most important. "W

Representing the faculty of the uni-
versity, Prpfessor Thomas H, leed of

he second speaker. He dwelt up
loyalty throughout his talk, charae-
[zing the man who comes back from
i. football game able to talk above a
whisper as a traitor to his school.
'There is nothing the university does
that is more valuable than nculatng
a spirit of loyalty," said Professor
Reed. "A man who is loyal to his
university is loyal to his state and to
his country. But we do- not want the
type of loyalty which only manifests
itself when we have winning teams."
"The faculty looks with favor on
traditions which make this a distinct
community", the speaker continued.
"Traditions are a community habit.
The good ones are a stepping stone
to something better, the bad ones a
mill-stone around the neck of a col-
lege community. Bad traditions can-
not be ousted by the faculty, you must
do it yourself."
Arthur J. Adams, '18, addressed the
gathering on behalf of the alumni of
the university. In opening he paid a
tribute to the Michigan band which
was present at the ceremny. The
"Victors" he denoted "the key-note of
the campus."
In his talk Mr.. Adams stressed the
point, "Freshmen be freshmen." "Be
good freshmen", he said. "Do not
make the mistake of trying to buck
tradition. It will spell ruination. It
can not be done. It never has been
done. Be freshmen at all times until
in Sleepy Hollow you burn yOur pots.
Do everything that is expected of
freshmen. Consecrate yourself to the
ideals of this university."
As he. finished speaking he el-

comed the first year men to the "great
brotherhood of Michigan men."

Michigan Alumnus this year, the third
