Washington, October 14. (By A. P.)
-Worry over financial difficulties in-
volving real estate transactions com-
bined with ill health is assigned by
close friends as the cause for Senator
Frank Brandegee, of Connecticut,
committing suicide here early today.
The body of the 60 year old senator
wasfound in an unused room in the
upper floor of his spacious residence
this morning by his secretary, W.
Don Lundy, and chanffer,-George Jones.
They were directed to the room by a
note left on his desk which gave
no motive for the act.
A tube attached to an open gas jet
was In the hand of -Mr. Brandegee,
who lay fully dressed on the floor.
Coroner J. Ramsey Nebitt, after an
examination, issued a certificate of
death which he said resulted from sui-
cide accomplished by inhaling illumi-
nating gas.
Senator Brandegee, a bachelor, lived
alone except for two negro servants.
When last seen alive yesterday by his
secretary and chauffer they said he
appeared in the best of spirits and
health. He was at home alone last
Mr. Brandegee was the senior mem-'
her of the senate from his state and
in his 19 years of service there had
taken an active part in the leadership
of the Republican party. le was chair-
man of the judiciary committee and
one of the leaders on the foreign rela-
tions committee, His death, coupled
with that of Senator Colt, of Rhode
Island, recently, cuts the Republican
membership in the sonate to 49, a.
bare majority. It is expected however,
that both seats will be .filled before
Congress meets again in December
for the short term..
The senator had no immediate blood
relations and arrangements for the
funeral were taken in charge by his
secretary and officers of the sene.
Michigan's cheer leading squad will
be sent to the Michigan-Illinois foot-
ball game at Urbana next Saturday,
it was announced yesterday by offi-
cials of the Chamber of Commerce.
In the recent drive for funds to send
the 72 piece Michigan band to the
Illinois game a considerable surplus
was secured and with this extra
money the Chamber is going to send
five of the cheering squad instead of
only one as was first planned.
A new bass horn, not a bass drum,
as was previously announced, will e
presented to the Michigan hand by'
the club.
Of the 12 cars which will make up
the Chamber of Commerce special
train to Illinois, seven have already
been filled and reservations are still
coming in. The complete details for
the parade in Urbana are not as yet
known, but the business men are pre-
pared to do their share in the cele-

In preparation for an expected visit
of the provist of Johns Hopkins uni- t
versity, F. J. Goodnow, alumni of that
university who are now in Ann Arbor,
have been requested to send their
names, addresses, and phone numbers
to James Hart of the political science
department. He can be reached at 1015'

Mr. Hart is acting as temporary sec-
retary until an alumni club can be
formed, for which purpose the provost
is planning to visit Ann Arbor. In
view of the fact that the day first setI
for his stop was Saturday, October 25,1
the day of the Wisconsin game here,
it is thought that a postponment will
be necessary. The names of alumni
are being gathered so that they may

the energy which city officials of De-
troit planned to expend in welcom-
ing the Prince of Wales, when hist
visit to Detroit was recently an-1
nounced, was turned today to seeing
that Edward David Windsor, a pri-

A huge crowd which began gather-

first sight of the Prince as he waved1
greetings from the observation plat-
form of his private car. Once inside

The inspection

of the Ford con-j

Following this the Prince was
taken ta the Detroit club where
he dined with Mr. Ford and a few in-
vited guests. Later there was recep-!

To Organize in Ten Teams, Composed
Of Fifty Men, Headed by
# SET $5000 GOAL
At a meeting of captains appointed
for the annual drive for funds for the
Students Christian association held
last night in the Green Tree inn, Earl
P. 'lawyer, '25A, outlined the pains
for the pendimg 'campaign. The orga-
,nization of the drive will include five
hundred, men, working in teams of
fifty, each team having one captain
and five lieutenants.. The goal set by
Sawyr is five thousand dollars.
"Last year we' got forty-five hundred
dollars, but owing to the enlarging of
the scope of activity of the associa-
tion, we are asking the campus for
more this year. Our Freshman biblesl
have necessitated an unusual ex-t
pense which we feel is well spent,1
and we are, through the new cabinet
offices, better able to serve the stu-
dent body than ever before," he said. c
The committee in charge of tyrel
drive includes, Earl P. Sawyer, '25A,}
general chairman; Perry M. Haydenc
'25, president of the association;
John H. Elliott, '26, in charge of the'
captains; and Maurice P. Rhodes,!
'25L, in charge of fraternity speak-
ers. The captains as announced last
night are: Carlton Lindstrom, '25,t
Rensis Likert, '26, Roy Dalblrg, '25, t
('harles Higley, '26, Millard Pryor,
'25, Hans Tobler, '26, Eugene Power, i
'27, Earl Blaser, '27, Milton Kane, '27,1
and Robert Waterman, '25.l
"There will be no pledges acceptedl
in this year's campaign," said Sawyer#
to the captains. "Wisconsin and
other large universities are able to;
raise the hard cash, and we can if,
they can. Every man on the cain-
pus will be given opportunity to aid
in this drive with his time if not with
his money."
The drive will begin the evening
of November 4, continuing for three
days through the sixth.

Endomment of *5000 Makes Lecture
Course Possible Here for
First Time
Dr. William J. Mayo, 83M, world
renowned surgeon, will speak here 'on
Friday, December 5, as the first lec-
turer on the endowed lecture course i
which lie gave the University last June.
Dr. Mayo offered in contribute $5,000#
for an endowed ecturcship on the
subject of surger at that time and hiss
gift was aecep- ,d by the Board of
Regents in their final meeting of
last semester. The interest on the sum
given will be used to provide an hon-
orarium for the men who will speak.
While Harvard, Columbia, and other;
American colleges have had endowedt
lectureships, this is the first one in
the history of.the University. Dr. Mayo
graciously consented to be the first
speaker on the course and has prom-
ised to send many of his eminent
colleagues here in order that it may
be three or four years before it will
be necessary to draw on the principal
of the fund.k
Dr. Mayo provided that the money
should be used to get renowned men
to lecture on the subject of surgery..
His object in establishing the fund;
was to provide a medium so that the
medical students could come in con-I
tact with a variety of distinguishedj
surgeons from this country and
abroad at different times throughout
their course.
"There is probably no graduate of
Michigan who has so profoundly af-<
fected the medical practice as I.'
Mayo," says Dean Hugh Cabot of thet
medical school. "He is a great sur-
geon, more than that, a great organ-
izer who has been able to effect an
organization whith deals with an
immense number of people, without
loss of personal contact."t
Although the lecture is primarily'
for students of the medical school,
all others who desire to attend will
be admitted. It is thought that there
will be a great many outsiders to hear
the distinguished speaker.

P'as Foremost Man Of Letters,

"Anatole France aptly chose his

was the eulogy that Prof. A. G. Can-,

asked to comment on the death of the
famous writer whose real name was
Jacques Anatole Thibault, and whose
nom de plume was Anatole France.

one of the permanent illustrations of
French letters," Professor Canfield
said. "He has been one of the fore-

"As for France's works, his later
ones, particularly 'Ulle des Penguins'
and 'Les Dieux Ont Soif,' were most
characteristic of him, but the "Crime

popular work and gained him world-
wide fame."

France's influence was mostly exert-
