In many ways the men repre-
senting Michigan on the gridiron
can be considered to constitute
one of the best teams in the ath-
letic history of the University.
They have not won all of their
games but they did something in-
finitely greater. They proved them-
selves in defeat, and came back in
victory. From everywhere come the
praises of Michigan spirit because
of the-clean and hard fighting at
Illinois, and the fine playing at
Ferry field last Saturday. If ever
a team deserved to win a game,
this one does. Michigan is con-
fident of the outcome. It is in
this spirit that the students and
faculty will bid farewell to Cap-

acy" as the second number ofj
current Oratorical association
re series at 8 o'clock tonight in
auditorium. He will be intro-
I by Dean W. R. Humphreys of
literary college.
Anspacher's life is the story of .
,n who found difficulty in find-
bis "place in the world." Born
ncinnati, O., in 1878, he received
L. B. degree from the College of,
of New York in 1897, and spent
lext eight years in the Columbial

At first he specialized in philosophy
and ethics, and received his master's
degree on his thesis on Kantian philo-
sophy. He then entered Columbia
law school and took his LL. Bf, after
which he re-entered the graduate
school and continued his studies in
philosophy, ethics, and political
science for three years.
Staff Lecturer
From 1902 to 1905 Mr. Anspacher
was secular lecturer at the Temple
Emanuel, New York City. Since 1906
he has been on the permanent. lec-
ture staff of the Brooklyn Institute
of Arts and Sciences. He is also a

center and. is on thee staff of theĀ±
Civic Forum lecture bureau of New
In addition to being a dramatist, a
philosopher, and a lecturer, Mr. Ans-
pacher is a poet. Some of his poems,
written for the National committee
before and during our participation
in .the World War, are quite well
known. . Among them "The Clarion"
and "The Pledge" were incorporated
into and are still used in many of
our national memorial ceremonials..
Noted Playsr
Mr. Anspacher's dramatic record is
well known through his long series!
of successful plays. For several years
an actor himself, and the husband of I
one of America's distinguished ac-
tresses, Katherine Kidder, he knows
the theatre from behind the scenes as
well as from the viewpoint of the1
dramatist's study.
Among his better known plays are!
"The Embarrassment of Riches,"
"A Woman of Impulse," "The GlassI
House," "The Washerwoman Duch-
ess," "Our Children," "The Unchas-
tened Woman," "That Day," "The
Rape of Belgium," "The Dancer,"
"Dagmar," and "The New House,"
which, produced in London under the!
title of "Daddalums," wvas said to-
have been one of the greatest theatri-
cal successes in England. ;
. No word had been received from.
Mr. Anspacher late last night as to
the hour of his arrival in Ann Arbor.
Dean E. H. Krauss of the Pharmacy
college and of the Summer session
leaves this morning to attend a con-.
ference of the Association of Summer,
School Administrators, which will be
held tomorrow and Saturday at the
University of Indiana, at Bloomington.
Several years ago Dean Kraus, with
the aid of two other administrators,
sent out a letter inviting the deans
of summer schools to attend a con-
ference at the University. The con-E
ferences, which are conducted on the
discussion plani, have continued to,
meet annualy throughout the country.

Stresses Availibility, Eligibility, And
Activity As Basis Of College,
"We want you to live up to Michi-
gan. Her history is not finished; each
class has a page to write, so write it
well." With this exhortation, Herbert
!Steger, '25, addressed the meeting of
the freshmandliterary class, held last
night in the natural science auditor-
"Availability" was emphasized by
Steger as the biggest/ thing in col-
lege life, and second to this, ability.
"Stay eligible; then pick an activity
that suits you and give it all you've
got" was his advice to the freshmen.
Henry Grinnell, '28, Mary Louise
Murray, '28, and Louise Piggott, '28,1
officers of the class, spoke while the.
gathering was waiting for the ap-
pearance of Steger, who was delayed
by football practice. Grinnell em-
phasized the fact that organization is
necessary if the class is to make a!
name for itself, and if a victory over
the sophomores is to be recorded this
fall. He then announced the commit-
tees of the class of '28 for this year.
They are as follows: Discipline':
Fred Tuller, chairman, Benny Oos-;
terbaan, William Prescott, John
Remsceff, Ferry Reynolds Social.
Frank Sherman, chairman, Caroline

LaFollette Involved
The committe also sought to 4lelve
momentarily into the inside story of
the LaFollette campaign and was told
that one campaign collector had re-
ceived about $120,000 among trade
unions, mostly in small amounts, not
covered by previous collecting re-
ports placed before the committee by
LaFollette managers.
Late today, E. J. Bliss, president of
the Regal Shoe company, was ques-
tioned regarding newspaper adver-
tisements appearing in the name of
the company discussing political is-
sues along with selling talk for shoes.
The witness told the committee he
could not say off hand how much
was sperft in the advertising cam-
paign, which was directed toward
preventing the elgction being thrown
into congress, but that one advertise-
ment, which was printed in 60 cities'
where the company had stores, had
cost $15,000. He promised to furnish
the information later.
Large Sums Raised
A. K. Liggett, a drug dealer, manu-
facturer, and chairman of the Calvin
Coolidge finance committee of Massa-
chusetts, told the committee he had
raised $450,000 and hoped to get more
than $500,000. He was questioned
sharply by members of the committee
and counsel concerning the letter
which the committee sent out asking
for funds and saying "very large con-
tributions' would be so divided as to
conform to the law."

Washington, Oct. 29.-(By A. P.)-
A bad entangled network of political
by-ways was explored today by the
Washington section of the Senate
campaign fund committee.
Focusing its efforts mainly on the
method of the Republican campaign
organization, the committee followed
Ithrough all day sessions a long trail
of charges and denials, swinging from
the famous Republican campaign let-
ter distributed in Massachusetts to
the parcelling out of federal patron-
age' in South Carolina, and touching
on reputed efforts to line up the sup-
port of the negro, the laborer and thej

ate will also attend.
Owen D. Young, who arrived from
Paris tonight, will remain in Berlin
only long enough to complete the for-
malities connected with the installa-
tion of Mr. Gilbert. The latter is ex-
pected to arrive here tomorrow morn-


Experiments Conducted in Effort to
Destroy Clouds As Flying
Washington, Oct. 29. (By A. P.)-
Extensive experiment in the destruc-
tion of fogs and clouds by the use o
electrified sand are to be carried out
under government.supervision, at Bo-
ling field. Army airplanes equipped
with a device patented by Dr. L
Francis Warren, of Harvard univer:
sity, have been detailed:exclusively
tni thai work and daily flights are, to
be made during the next six weeks
to determine both the peace and war
value in connection with aviation.
The two aviatbrs who conducted the
attack today obtained a fair "bag"
despite the extreme height of the
clouds over the field. A group of of-
ficers and civilians from the ground
could follow without difficulty the I
cutting off of part of a cloud and it's
subsequent disintegration.
"The test has resulted in some cases
in uncanny manifestations," says Dr.
Warren, On July 8, a frightfully heavy
thunderstorm with almost continuous;
lighting lay to the south of Phillips
field over Chesapeake. At 2:30 o'clock'
we attacked a small corner of this
storm with a quantity of negatively
charged sand-less than 10 pounds-
and coincident with its application
there was no more lightning and no
more thunder."
Tickets for the Northwestern game
are still available, although there are
only a few remaining and these are
expected to be sold within the next
few days. Interest in this game has
heightened considerably since North-
western's 13 to 9 victory over M. A.
C. last Saturday. Students wishing
to secure seats for this game may
file their applications any time dur-
ing the day, at the office of the Ath-
letic association, in the .Yost Field
Michigan's quota of 15,00 tickets for
the Ohio State game at Columbus has
been completely sold out, it was also
announced at the Athletic office.

After Accident
Tom Waring of the Waring's Penn-
sylvanians who are playing at Majes-
tic this week, is reported considerably
improved at St. Joseph Mercy hospi-
tal, where he was taken following an
accident Monday. 1
Although his condition was con-
sidered serious when rushed to the
hospital, there is every chance for
his rapid recovery, according to at-
tending physicians.

conference, with slightly more than
1,000 registered delegates, opened
yesterday morning with a general
meeting in the Methodistschurch. The
day's progran included speeches.

A. at non, and will also make the
speech of the evening assembly. The

ning meeting.
John M. Alexander, of Chicago, di-
rector of the American Youth found-
ation, was the first speaker at the
afternoon session of the regional
Sunday school convention, held at the
First Methodist church today. He
made a plea for an organization of
all churches together, and asked that
religious education be not looked up-
on as a fad, but as a means of giing
children a Christian objective. His
address wa followed by that of Prof.
H. U. Leedy; on "Music in Worship."
Following this Dr. M. A. lion-
line, of Pasadena, Calif., gave an ad-
dress on "The Aim of Religious Edu-!
cation." "Education is equally im-
portant with heredity and environ-
ment," said Dr. Honline, and as edu-
cation is a unitary process, religion
must be mixed with it."
Following Dr. H-online's address,
the convention inspected the publish-
er's display at the church, and the
educational exhibit at Harris hall.
After this the members attended the
Twilight organ recital at Hill audi-
Coach Yost addressed the dinner
meeting of the officers held in the
Presbyterian church. In his speech
the coach pointed out that a man to
be a winner in life needed to be an
all-round man. He must be well bal-
anced, physically, mentally, and mor-f
ally. "As to booze," said the coach,
"I like a game where you have some
chance of winning. I couldn't figure
any chance of beating that game so
I never played in it."

tees for the Sophomore Prom were
