Refutes LaFollette; Coumittee Had
No Intention To Anuass Last
Minute Funds
Chicago, Oct. 17. (By A. P.)-Wil-
liam M. Butler, chairman of the Re-
publican National committee, in-
formed the special campaign investi-
gating committee of the Senate today
that it is the "hope"and "expectation"
of his organization to raise a total off
$3,000,000 for the national campaign,
presidential, senatorial and congres-
At the same time Mr. Butler denied
charges of Sen. Robert M. LoFallotte,
the independent presidential candi-G
date, that his committee would mobi-
lize a large mass of funds in certain,
states during the last week of the cam-
paign. His denial was in reply to ques-,
tions by Senator Shipstead, Farmer
Labor, Minnesota.
"We have no such intentions, and
have no such preparations," Mr. But-
ler said. "We have no ability to do it.
We have no funds for purposes of that
kind. There is no ,intention of doing
anything of the sort. I want very
much to conduct this campaign in
such a way that when I get through
I will have something to be proudt
Under cross examination by Senatork
Caraway, Democratic, Arkansas, re-
garding the budget plans of his com-
mittee, Mr. Butler testified that orig-
inally he had estimated $2,500,000 a,
the amount that would be required
for the national presidential cam-
paign. This sum was increased by
$500,000 later, he added, after it had1
been decided to take care of the sen-
atorial and congressional campaigns
as well.
Calling attention to the fact that
vki e 1 leiforo the cos mmittee was1
that the Republican organization al-l
ready had collected $1,700,000, Sen.
ator Caraway asked if it was exp ct-
ed to collect an additional $1,300,000,
"Yes" Mr. Butler replied.
"What ire your plans for collect-
ing it?" asked the Senator.
"Nothing except the solicitations.
which are going on all over the coun-
try among our friends for funds," was
the reply. "There is no special plan."

C" lege"raining Valued A t
$72,900 By Boson Educator

Average Max ininmieome of College
Nan is $6,00 Yearly, Says
Boston, Oct. 17.-The cash value of
a college education to its possessor
'is $72,000, according to a report made
public today by Dean Everett W. Lord,
of the Boston university College of
Business administration. The report
is based on q long study of the earn-
ing eapacity bf college graduates. The
cash value of a high school education
is placed by the report at $33,000.
The report places the average max-!
imum income of the untrained man at
$1,200; that of a high school graduate
at $2,200, and of th'e college graduate
at $6,000. The total earnings of each
of the -three types up to the age of 60
are placed at $45,000, $78,000, andI
$160,000- respectively. Dean Lord in
his conputation estimated also that
while the untrained man at the age,

of 50 begins to drop toward depend-
ency the college man reaches his
maximum earning capacity at 60.
"The untrained man goes to work
as a boy of 14 and reaches his max-
imum income at the age of 30," the
report said. "The maximum is on the
average less than $1,200 a year. In
view of the facts that this income is
earned through manual labor, depen-
dent on physical strength, it begins
to fall off at the age of 50 or even
earlier, and soon reaches a level be-
low self support.",
The figures show that more than
60 of every 100 untrained workers are
dependent on others for support at
the age of 60. The total earnings for
the untrained man from 14 to 60 are
about $45,000. Between the ages of 14
and 18 the four years which might
have been spent in high school the'
young man usually earns not more
than $2,000.

Wire From Western Union
Office to Receive
I eports'


Better service than that given at
the grid-graph showing of the Michi-
gan-M. A. C. game last Saturday has
been promised for the Illinois game1
today by the Alumni association and
the Western Union, who will run a
special wire to Hill auditorium to re-
ceive the returns.
Each play will be flashed on the
board as it happens at the Illini!
field. The grid-graph, which is shown
at each out-of-town football game by
the Alumni association, one fourth of
the proceeds being donated to the
band expenses, is completely equipped
to show the entire game is it occurs
at Champaign.
Each play, the man making thel
play, the yardage gained and h'ow, the
scoz'e, the time to play and the ground..
to gain as well as the downs are
shown on the graph by means of
lights. The ball, which is represented
by a light flashed over the gridiron,
will be operated today by Jack Ben-I
nett, '27L. Charles Livingstone, '27L,
who has charge of the entire showing,
will control the board, while Donal
I-I. Haines of the journalism depart-
ment will interpret the results as
they come off the wire.
Tickets for the showing today are
on sale at Graham's, Wahr's, Slater's,
Huston's and the Union desk. They
are priced at 50 cents for the down-'
stairs section and 35 cents for the
balcony. They will also be 'sold at
the auditorium when the doors open
at 2,:45 o'clock. The game returns
will start coming in a few moments
after 3 o'clock, it is expected.
Livingstone promises that better.
service will be given by the Western
Union today than was furnished last'
week. The delays in the showing
were due to the, fact that all the plays
were not sent by the company, a fault
which will be rectified this afternoon.
Members of the cross country team
will be the guests of the Alumni as-
sociation at the graph showing.

States That Cheeks and Balances of
Present Constitution s
Is Suitable
Albany, New York, Oct. 17. (By A.
P.)-Secretary Hughes, addressing a
convocation of the University of the
State of New York an address as
non-politically, spoke tonight in favor
of retaining the original constitu-
tional balances established between
the Supreme court and congress and
between the president and congress.
"The constitution of the United
States is not a fetish," he said. "Im-
partial consideration of existing con-
ditions should either heighten our
respect for the institutions which-
prove themselves to be adaptable to
unforeseen and unimaginable condi-
tions, or should aid us in securing
advisable modifications. Mere pane-
gyrics or mere impatience with what-
-ever exists are of little value."
He said the charge of usurpation
of power made against the Supreme
court has been "in the judgement of I
most persons competent to judge,
disproved." It was not a question
whether the United States subscribed
to the doctrine of judicial review, forI
the constitution provides that. The
question," said Mr. Hughes, "wasj
whether the nation should abandon
the doctrine."

their value is about $2,500.
Most of the funds for next year's
scholarships are now available and
it is planned to send the two journa-
lists over in January. The holders
will be chosen by a committee of the
London branch, and it is possible that
during their visit to the United States

he pointedl out the most notable and

ture in the :world.
"Obviously there is no ideal tour,"
siad Professor Frayer. "People have
their own tastes,, and some would not
care for things that others wouldI
spend days over."
"Unless one considers travel much
the same as an university education,
he misses the best of the journey,"
he continued. With this as a start-
ing point, and aided by slides fur-
nished by the fine arts department
he took his audience through Athens
and Rome, the Acropolis and Parthe-
non, the Olympic stadium, the great
churches of Rome, and the towers

Cars Demolished
In a telephone call to his brother

morning, Irving Colef explained that,
although both cars were going at a
low rate of speed, the dense fog ob-
scured the road so that neither driver

curve' and collided. The occupants ofy
both cars were thrown to the pave-

London, Oct. 17. (By A. P.)-With
the parliamentary elections only 12
days away and the campaign at its
hottest no body would venture today
to predict the results for -it is gen-
erally acknowledged that anything
may happen.
The government party still pro-
fesses complete confidence in the out-
come of the balloting but it was as-
serted that the hearts of most of the
Labor candidates are less bouyant
than when the campaign opened.
Outside the ranks of Labor few per-
sons are to be found who believe that
Labor will come back with a majority
in the lower house.j
In fact, the impression is growing,
that as in the last Parliament, the
conservatives again will have the
strongest personnel. Should that hap-
pen the government of Ramsay Mac-
Donald, should it again come into
power, would be quickly defeated by
a combined vote on the Conservatives
and the Liberals and a Conservative
ministry would be formed.

Dean Mortimer E. Cooley of the en-
gineering college, Democratic candi-
date for United States senator, will
arrive in Ann Arbor sometime today
i after having completed his final tour
of the state. For the past week he
has been speaking in all of the im-
portant cities and towns in central
Since the beginning of the cam-
paign Dean Cooley has spoken in 82
of the 83 counties in the State, a feat
i which has not been accomplished by
any candidate for a national office.
The next two weeks will be spent in
covering the city of Detroit and
Wayne county, the county which has
not yet been covered.
One of the important points which
Dean Cooley stresses in his political
speeches is the question of water-
"Probably no question concerns the
people of Michigan more than the
proposed deep waterways connecting
the great lakes with the ocean," says
Dean Cooley. "Not only does it con-
cern Michigan, but all the states bor-
dering on the Great Lakes basin and
the vast continent section to the
westward which is the greatest food
producing area in the world.
"In building the St. Lawrence
waterway, it is proposed to erect dams
at the foot of the rapids, converting
them into pools or lakes lown which
ships would sail and lock through
the dams on their way to tidewater.
The flow of water down the St.
Lawrence is 200,000 cubic feet of
water per second. The dams would
enable conversion of this flow into'
more than 4,000,000 horse power, the
value of which would be 20 to 25 dol-
lars per horse power a year at the
switchboard and from 60 to 75 dol-
lars farther away. The market for
this power already exists in New
England, New York and Canada. The
income for one year would be more
than 250 milions of dollars a year.
The cost of the canal is estimated at -
less than $260,000,000, thus the in-
come for one year would equal the
cost of the waterway.'
For ten weeks Dean Cooley has
been campaigning throughout the
state, and at a recent meeting of the
engineering faculty he remarked that
in spite of the long and strenuous
grind he "was getting lots of fun"
out of it and from a point of educa-
tion the experience was to him in-
