ary Class Election Results
"Generous contributions from more
than two hundred business and pro-
fessional men of Ann Arbor will send
Michigan's Varsity band to the Illi-
noishgame. As a mark of apprecia-
tion for the whole hearted support
given to the project the Student coun-
cil wishes to take this opportunity to,
publicly thank these men for the fi-1
nancial assistance which will make]
possible the appearance of the Var-
sity band on the field at Urbana on1
October 18."
The above resolution was passed
by the Student council at their regu-
lar meeting held at 7:30 o'clock last
night in their offices at the Union.
The matter of decorations for the
Illinois game was discussed and de-
finite action will be taken today. It
is hoped that conditions will warrant
the formation of a large block "M"
at the Illinois contest.
The present system of ticket distri-
bution used by the Athletic associa-
tion was considered by the council.
A survey of the method of ticket dis-
tribution at other universities will be
made and the council will then draft!
a resolution outlining a new system
calculated to smooth over many of
the difficulties created by the system
used at Michigan this year. The res-
olution will be presented to the Ath-
letic association in the belief that
the student body demands a change
in the present system of distribution.,
Charles Merriam, '25E, chairman'of
the cheerleading squad reported that
the squad has been cut to six men
and' that these men are at present
busy practicing new yells and new
formations for the opening confer-
ence game with Illinois.
Robert J. Hummer, '25, reported
that tho. sub-committee of the Stu-
dent council will be chosen in the
near future. The sub-committee is.
composed of twenty-four men chosen

and Oxford debater when interviewed
early this morning concerning the
crisis in the Labor government.
MacDonald further stated that the
government knew that the issue would
arise soon and took the opportunity
of getting a vote of confidence on this
relatively unimportant amendment
rather than on the Russian treaty
which would have been a major issue
in the election. It is probable that the
Prime Minister already has an agree-
ment with the king to dissolve Parlia-
ment and will set the election dat6
some time late in November.
"The election this time will go hard

government in England will come

ance of power they would probably
lose many of their seats.
When asked why the government
did not resign after the vote of lack
of confidence, as is usual, MacDonald
declared that in that case the king
would immediately call Stanley Bald-
win, Conservative leader to the Prime
Ministership and it would be almost a
foregone fact that he would be de-
feated on the first measures it
brought up.
MacDonald, when told by the re-
porter of the fall of his father's ad-
ministration, appeared very calm and
read the story that was handed to
him with scarcely any emotion.

Scott Returns From Trip In
Southern Europe And Egypt



Spent Six

Months Doing Research
in British Museum

Prof. F. N. Scott of the rhetoric
department has returned to the Uni-I
versity after a leave of absence of
one year. During the year he travel-
ed extensively in the countries bor-
dering the Mediterranean and in
Europe. He visited many places of
particular interest, met many note-
worthy men, and did research work
in London.
While in Egypt Professor Scott
went down the Nile to Luxor and
Assuan. At the former he visited
the Valley of the Kings where is lo-
cated King Tutankhamen's tomb. He
was taken ill while at Cairo with an
unknown disease which is claimed
by the Egyptians, he says, to be the
fates taking revenge on those who'
visited the tombs.
From Egypt his travels went into{
Sicily and Italy. Naples, Rome,
Florence, Venice and Milan were -also1
included in his itinerary.
After visiting Switzerland Profes-
sor Scott went to France. He spent

some time in the Riviera and in Paris.
It was his good fortune to attend
a political ward meeting of Left in1
Paris. This group is made up of'per-
sons with semi-socialistic views. j
Six months of Professor Scott's
time was spent doing research work
in the library of the British museum.
This work was in preparation for a
book on "English Usage" which he
plans to write.
At Oxford he was present when
Masefield's verse speaking contestj
was in progress. Five hundred twelve
persons were entered in this from all
parts of England and her possessions.
A Scotch girl won the prize.
The Prince spoke at the Wembly
exhibition when Professor Scott was
there and hehalso heard Winston
Churchill at this time. Among other
people of note whom he met wereI
Edmund Gosse, Bernard Shaw, Wil-
liam Archer, John Buchan.,.d" John
Professor Scott's ship, the Acqui-
tania, ran into the edge of the re-
cent hurricane, and it was only after
a very rough voyage that she reach-
ed New York on August 6.

The labor government of Ramsey
MacDonald came into power in Great
Britain in January of the present
year, when the Conservative ministry
of Stanley Baldwin, which had been
at the helm only a few months,, was
dismissed by the House of Commons,
with a vote of lack of confidence be-
cause of its expousal of protection.
The defeat of the Baldwin adminis-
tration was the culmination of a
Laborite amendment to the reply to
the King's speech from the throne.
[ The amendment declared that it was
the duty of the House "respectfully
to submit to your Majesty that your
Majesty's present advisors have not
the confidence of the House." The
amendment was introduced by John'j

then deputy leader of the Parlia-

Donald had moved closure on the de-

tion of power at the request of King1
George it was believed that at any

Liberals and the Conservatives coulda

Deember 1923 the conservatives had I
259 and the Liberals 159 seats while

Professor Carver Appeals for Clean
Athletics; Uses Cross Country
Running as Example
Freshmen of all clases were given
their first formal introduction to the
traditions of the University at the
Traditions' Day exercises held yes-
terday afternoon in Hill auditorium.
Lyman Glasgow, '25, opened the
program by leading the yearlings in
several Michigan yells. The words
for "The Victors" were projected on
the screen for the benefit of the new
students and Glasgow led the sing-
ing of Michigan's renowned song.
Alfred J. Connable, president of the
Student council then addressed the
gathering on the subject of Michi-
gan's traditions. Connable traced the
growth of customs at the University
and the inpeitance of the freshmen
abiding L:y them. He also called the
attention of the freshmen to the fact
that for the first time a discipline
body would be chosen from within
the ranks of the freshmen class. Con-
nable laid emphasis upon the impor-
tance of this committee and stated
his belief that the class of '28 was
capable of handling any infringe-
ments of the traditions through the
use of such a committee. He also
made a plea that the freshmen electl
a capable man as president of the
Dean J. A. Bursley, the next speak-:
er on the program, gave the fresh-
men valuable advice upon certain as-
pects of life at the University. This
was the first opportunity that the
freshmen have had to become ac-
quainted with Dean Bursley.
Prof. H. C. Carver of the mathe-
matics department spoke on the sub-
ject of "Clean Athletics." He took
cross country running as an example,
and- requested that as, many fresh-'
men as possible should go out for)
the freshmen cross country team. As'
a special inducement Prof. Carver se-
cured from Dr. George A. May, di-i
