Belief Prevals That Coolidge Will
Prefer Cabinet of Own
Washington, Nov. 8. (By A. P)-
Several changes in the cabinet by
next spring are looked for in Wash-
ington as a result of reports that some
members intend to retire to private
life for personal reasons and a belief
that President Coolidge after next
March 4, will prefer a cabinet entirely
of his own selection.
Upon assuming the presidency after
the death of President Harding, Mr.
Coolidge requested all members of
the cabinet not to submit their resig-
nations. While he has made no set re-
quest now, with the approach of a
term of four years to which he hasI
been elected by a vote of the people,
he has neither asked for nor received
in any way resignations of members
of the present cabinet.
It is expected that he will urge
successfully several members of the
present cabinet to continue in office
after his inauguration in March. Al-
though Secretary Hughes is under-
stood to have indicated to friends that
he would prefer for private reasons to
return to the practice of law, it is
the general view that the Secretary of
State will continue at his post for a
year, if no longer, while Secretarys
Mellon and Hoover as well as Attor-
ney General Stone are regarded as

changing from -her regular crimson
jerseys to black ones, cast a dark
and disastrous cloud over Ohio State's
western Conference championship as-
pirations here today when she unex-
pectedly set the Buckeyes down on
the short end of a 12-7 score.I
The first half of the game was a1
listless affair marked only by ex-
ceedingly poor punting by both teams.
With the beginning of the second
half however, the contest took on al
tinge of real fight and within 8 min-
utes Indiana had scored more points
upon Ohio than the rest of the Buck-
eye's opponents had been able to
do all year.
Klee scored the Buckeye's lone
touchdown when he received a double
pass from Endler on the 7 yard line,
and added the extra point by a drop
kick. Ohio State marched down the
field for 77 yards in the final periodE
but the game ended with Ohio State
in possession of the ball on Indiana's
3 yard line.
Mr. Howard Y. McCluskey of the

So C A Officials:
Expect To Pass
IOriginal Quota
With complete reports on 125 lists
of students out of 360 compiled by'
the Student Christian association,
and 50 fraternities yet to be called
upon, the financial drive of the S. C.
A. will probably go over the top the
latter part of next week was the re-
port of Earl Sawyer, chairman of the
drive last night.
Every solicitor is urged to turn in
his list of men to Lane hall today,I
whether it has been covered or not,
in order that a clean up squad of 30
picked men may finish soliciting
next week.
The men who will comprise the
fraternity solicitors are Maurice P.
Rhodes, '25L; Rensis Likert, '26E;
Norman B. Johnson, '25; Arthur
Thomas '25M; Lionel Crocker of the
public speaking department; Egbert
Isbell, '26L; Tom Dasef, '25L;. and
Perry M. Hayden, '25. This group will
meet at Lane hall today at 2 o'clock
to discuss plans of calling on frater-
nities this week.
The men comprising the clean-up
squad will be picked from those who
have made the best showing in the
drive to date. They will meet at Lane!

Wisconsin held a second team to a

the Badgers threatened to score,

More than 3,000 letters containing
booklets explaining the purpose and
functions of the Unian have been sent
to non-life members by the life mem-
bership drive committee, under the
direction of Harry G. Messer, '26,
chairman of the drive. The booklet
also explains the condition of Union
finances and reasons why students
should take out a membership.
The drive will start next Tuesday
and will continue for three days, dur-
ing which time it is hoped to obtain
a quota of 1400 new life members.
More than 200 men comprising 19
teams of ten men and a captain will
work in the drive. The teams have
been given definite territory to cover
in their soliciting and they will call
upon all fraternity houses and room-
ing houses on the campus.
Two new additions have been made
to the Union's equipment list this year,
the first, the new Pendleton library on
the second floor of the building which
is completed and which will be opened
in a few days, and the second the
swimming pool which is being pushed
to completion and is expected to be
ready for use by Christmas.
The regular life membership fee for
students is $50 which may be paid
in installments of $10 a year. If one
payment is made while the student is
still in the University the remainder
may be made later and the $50 rate]
still obtained. After a student has been
graduated one year however, the price
is raised to $100. or this reason a
saving of $50 is made by paying the fee
while the student is still in school
or by paying one installment.
The money received from member-
ships obtained by the drive will be
used to make .payment, against the
$350,000 debt still outstanding from
the cost of building the Union, in-
stead of being applied against running
A meeting of all committeemen and
captains of teams will be held to-
morrow night at the Union to receive
final instructions for the beginning
of the drive the next day. All men who
intend to participate in the drive are
expected to be present at this meeting
and any others who wish to work on
the drive may come to this meeting.
A number of men can still be used in
the work of soliciting.

Work In Rhetoric
Improved By Scott
Work in the rhetoric department has
had a distinct impetus since the re-
turn of Prof. F. N. Scott, departmental
head, who spent last year's leave of
absence in research study abroad.
Registrations in two or more courses
given in the department have in-
creased. In addition 49 graduate stu-
dents are pursuing advanced work;
19 of them'are to take their degrees
in rhetoric. Of these 7 are candidates
for the doctor's degree.

Large Number of Subscribers Indicate
Greater Interest in Association
For Current Year;
Surpassing* their goal of $1,800 by
$330 with a total of $2,133.20, Michi-
gan women went over the top in their,
annual finance drive which was held
last week. The sum is not complete
as some of the teams failed to hand
in their reports. Although the drive
has really been closed, solicitation'
will be carried on this week so that
every woman student will be called
on. If for any reason a woman is not
called on and wishes to contribute to
the association they are urged to
bring their money to Newberry hall
any afternoon after 2 o'clock.
Greater independence . of the as-
sociation has been shown this year
by the fact that their quota was rais-
ed from $1,500 to $1,800 and that the
subscriptions were increased in num-
ber from 835 to 1,017 thus indicating'
a greater interest in the organization!
on the part of the women students.
The Packard car lead the other 12j
teams with a total of $237.25. Evelyn
Murray, '27, is chairman of this team
and announces that this sum is still
incomplete. The Cadillac, which held
a close second with $226.50 held the
first place several times during the
week, Genevieve Speers, '26, is the
chairman of the team and also holds
the place as being the woman who
got the most subscriptions during the
campaign. Miss Speers, leads the list
with 66 subscriptions and $86.50. Lida
Thatcher, '25, is second, having 32
subscriptions and $77.50.

defeat yesterday afternoon at Ferry Field.
The Purple put up peppery fight, and the efforts of Captain Bob Wie

sponsible for the greater part of the gains made by the visitors. Bal
also played an important part in the aerial attack which the Purple i
