"In the United States there is only
one engineer in the public service
who is widely known as an engineer
-Mr. Herbert Hoover," said Dean
Mortimer E. Cooley, Democratic can-
didate for United States senator, in
his address to the open air meeting
of the students last night.
"There have been, I understand,
men in the Senate and House with'
engineering training, but I do not
understand that they went there as
engineers in the expectation of ren-
dering service based on their experi-
ence and training as engineers.
"Englna.d, France, Italy, Japan and.
all the countries of South America
have scientific men in their legisla-
tive bodies but the United States
congress must gather information on
engineering projects from outside
Dean Cooley pointed out several of
the engineering problems which have
come before the senate and some of
the problems which are bound to
come up in the future, mentioning in
particular the Mussel Shoals ques-
tion, the great transportation prob-
lem, and the needless exploitation of
natural resources in the United
States. These, according to the Dean
are essentially engineering problems
requiring engineering training and
In concluding his speech Dean
Cooley said: "I have been , highly
honored by the engineering profes-
sion, particularly by the engineers of
Michigan. In venturing to try for
this new honor thoughts of my pro-
fession are uppermost. I am con-
vinced that we as engineers have a
duty to perform for the public which
we have not realized and if I can in-
spire the engineers to take an active
interest in public affairs, even though'
I fa'1 in the election, I shall consider
the 2 ace won."

It was originally planned to secure
a model of the Woolworth building but
Mr. Gilbert informed the college that
the molds had not been preserved and
consequently he would not be able
to cast a model.
The College of Architecture has a

Temple of Detroit. It is the purpose'
of the architectural college to make
a complete collection of blueprint,

of the buildings which are now be

London, Oct. 10.-(By A. P.)-At
the opening of the campaign for what
universally is described as an "un-
wanted" election, perhaps the most
striking incident is the extraordinary
attack on Premier MacDonald pub-
lished in the intellectual Laborite re-
view, the New Statesman, organ of
the independent Labor party. If the
attack faithfully represents the feel-
ing of any large sections of the party
and is not the outgrowth of some
personal feud, it is considered as im-
plying a serious crisis within the.
ranks of the party.
Ability Admired
Paying tribute to Mr. MacDonald's
remarkable gifts as a parliamen-
tarian, and foreign secretary, the ar-
ticle says some of the highest offi-
cials in the foreign office consider
h'e has been the best foreign secre-
.tary Great Britain has had in a quar-
ter of a century, and if he is not
mourned elsewhere, he certainly will
be mourned at the foreign office.
Yet the article proceeds to say that
Mr. MacDonald alone is responsible
for having brought the country into!
the present "absurd political predica-
ment" and that while he had been an
immense success as foreign secretary,
as prime minister he has been an ut-
ter failure.

Crowd Gathers
For Dedication

largest crowd known to attend any
gridiron contest in Central Michigan,
will be on hand in East Lansing to-
day for the game which will dedicate
the new stadium of the Michigan Ag-
ricultural college. This is the first
time that Michigan has invaded East
Lansing for 10 years.
President Marion L. Burton, Gov.

of agriculture, are the men who will
give the speeches at the dedication

Every preparation is being made
by East Lansing authorities to handle
the unusually large crowd. Twenty
five State police will be on hand to
direct traffic.I
Among some of the special social
events occasioned by the game are a

Noted Scientist
Visits Ann Arbor
Prof. J. V. Uspensky, a member of
the Academy of Sciences fn Russia,
is spending a few days in Ann Arbor
while awaiting vises from England
for his passport to return to Russia.
These vises are necessary since Pro.
fessor Uspensky plans to return to
Russia by way of England and Eng-
land now requires a special vise for
all Russians entering the Empire.
Recently Professor Uspensky read a
paper before the Mathematics club of
the University in which he explained
the remarkable results obtained by
one of his pupils, a young man namei
Vinogradoff. This student is not re-
lated to the well known Oxford jurist
by the same name who lectured here.

Professor Uspensky came to Amer,

Academy of Science to the recent In-
ternational Congress of Mathemeti-
clans held in Toronto.
There are only 40 members of the
Russian Academy of Science and
membership is, and has been for more
than a century, considered one of the
highest scientific distinctions.

In addition to the gridiron, over
which the ball is moved, the names
f all players are displayed on each
