Holds Up Traffic
Down North University Ave. yester-
day afternoon a battered Ford limped
noisily, and after coming to a jerky
stop, its engine choked and died.
Cars from the Kiwanis convention as
well as the regular traffic began to
line up for a block in every direction,
and while horns tooted impatiently,
the driver of this Ford sat helpless
in his seat. Two policemen arrived
on the scene and snapped questions
and orders to the already flustered
driver. The usual agressiveness of
the policemen and unusual anxiety of
the driver made the dialogue more
than interesting.,
A small crowd soon gathered and
presently a dozen students seized
hold on this ancient Ford, shunting
it into a parking space before the
Quarry drug store.
The driver, a student, explained;
that he couldn't start his car unless;
someone sat in the seat to hold the!
i clutch pedal disengaged. And sol
while one of the policemen continuedl
his kindly advice, an obliging passer-I
by held down the guilty clutch and
the driver, who spoke English a lit-
tle brokenly, cranked and talked ex-
citedly. For a time the car was pas-
sive. then the motor caught, fired ir-
regularly a few times and settled
down to an uneven campus purr. By
a most interesting and complex series
of movements the driver and the
obliging student exchanged places
without releasing the clutch.3
"Get that wreck fixed up or keep itk
off the streets," shouted t'he police-
man, writing down the license, as the
car went up State St.

Committee Rules Senator Brookhart
Out of Ranks For Speaking
Against Coolidge
Des Moines, Iowa, Oct. 3. (By A. P.)
I -The Iowa Republican state commit-
-te today decided that Senator Smith
kW. Brookhart had ruled himself out
of the Rep. ranks when he dennounced
Pres. Coolidge and Charles G. Dawes,
Rep. nominees for president and vice-
The committee itself, indirectly de-
clared Senator Brookhart out of the
party, and stated that his statement
of the last few days, "is a repudiation
of a vote from the republican party."
Senator Brookhart who opened his
campaign for re.-election against Sen-
ator Emmbetsburgh today opened with
a vigorous attack upon President
'Coolidge, declared that the charge be"

V. M. Johnson, Internationl President
And F. A. Picard, Newly Elected
Governor, Both Speak
"Tonight I fire the first gun in a
campaign for the highest type of edu-
cators that money can procure," said
Pres. Marion L. Burton in an ad-
dress last night before more than
1000 Kiwanians assembled in Water-
man gymnasium. "We have passed
the peak of our building program,"
he said. "Oururequirements for the
future will not be so heavy, but if
Michigan is to remain at the top, if
we are to turn out the type of men
and women that you want your sons
and daughters to be we must offer
salaries that will enable us to main-
tain and attract to our teaching staff
the best educators in the country.
The future of our country de-
pends upon the type of minds that
the universities of this country turn
out, and I make no apelogy for ask-
ing the support of every loyal Ki-
wanian to intelligently assist the
University in the campaign to be
waged this winter for an increased
budget," said the President. "Only
thus can we secure the type of men
and women who will give our stu-
dents a real insight as to what life
is about."
Dr. Burton pointed out that never
before had any university opened to
its students such wonderful oppor-
tunity in the way of new buildings.
"More than $11,000,000 has been put
into the buildings opened this year.
This .p not enrough, however. We
must furthe equip thos buildings-
with an adequate teaching staff if
we are to realize the highest benefit.
I can hardly wait till the new legis-
lature is in session before I ask for
the $924,000 annual increase which
will make this possible."
"A clear thinking, independent mind
is what this university is endeavoring
to develop in her students, and no
amount of money thus spent can be
too great," continued the President.
"On the type of mind which weighs
the facts, our democracy rests. Are
you going to give your sons and
daughters the chance to develop such
Last night was the closing session
of the International Kiwanis conven-
tion. Victor M. Johnson, International
president spoke on, "The Practical
Side of Kiwanis." Ile emphasized the
fact that the constitution of our coun-
try must be upheld, and that it is
the object of Kiwanis organization to
promote intelligent, aggressive citi-
zenship with a full representation at
the polls.
Frank A. Picard of Saginaw, newly
elected governor of Kiwanis, express-
ed the Aims of the Michigan district
I for the coming year. "The day of the
luncheon club is over," he said, "and
the day of real service has arrived. We
propose to back a project for refore-
stration of the state, and the introduc-
tion o better grand opera for Michi-
gan's citizens."
Presentation of golf prizes, and
parade awards were made by V. .
Nelson of the Ann Arbor club, and
the session was closed by a dance in
Barbour gymnasium.
Practical Joker
Or Optimistic?
Yesterday the secretary of the Uni-
versity received the following letter
from some inspired optimist who
must think of the University of Michi-
gan as a delightful little local club .
Sect'y of University of Mich;
Dear Sir or Madam:-
Kindly inform me at once if a young
man whose name I have forgotten has
enrolled there at the university 'and
also what his address is'.

As to his description. He is mod-
erately tall, slender of build, black
hair, (parted in the middle,) gray
eyes, limps a little when
he walks, (I'm not sure with which
- leg,) Wears a light shirt mostly, jazz-
io tie of black smooth shaven, a very
polite, clean cut, and is around the
age of 25 years or 28 years.
I'm asking because he is a dear
friend of mine and haven't seen him

However, this does not speak for
the entire year for the nine month's

the same period, but is smaller than
the nine months' total of 1922. Lia-
