Michigan Democrats placed in nomination a full slate for the spring
election at the meeting held yesterday afternoon at the Masonic Temple.
Although certain defeat at the hands of the "Groesbeck one-man political
machine" was resignedly predicted by all, nine men andwomen were nam-
ed by the more than two hundred delegates from the thirteen Michigan
districts to represent the party.
Dean Mortimer E. Cooley of the engineering college, following the
opening address by Horatio J. Abbott of Ann Arbor, chairman of the state
central committee, yesterday morning delivered the keynote speech in his
post as temporary chap man. He predicted a resurrection of the party in

Herriot Faces
Political Crisis
In PactDecision
Paris, March 6.-(By A. P.).-Pre-
mier Herriot was regarded in politi-
cal circles here tonight as confronting
the most difficult crisis of his career
as head of the government. He is
facing the important question of a se-
curity pact and the entire nation is
watching him closely to see what he
will do with it.
Foreign Minister Skrzynsky, of Po-
land, in a long talk with the premier1
this afternoon, said that Poland would
not consent to a revision of the treaty
of Versailles. In addition, Foreign-
I Secretary Chamberlain of Great Bri-
tian, who arrived here this afternoon
on his way to Geneva, and with whom
Premier Herriot dined this evening,
presented another problem.
It is assumed, from his remarks in
the House of Commons, that Mr.
Chamberlain will advocate a favorable
lact which will expressly exclude tihe

Michigan, declaring that they were not
"dead," as claimed by opponents.
He definitely hit the speeches by two
died-in-the-wool party men at the
banquet which preceded the conven-
tion, Thursday night at the Union,
when bombast and care-worn epithets
of condemnation were indiscriminately
hurled on the heads of the opposing
party. Dean Cooley said: "Political
parties have argued their claim for
preference in the language of lauda-
tion for one and blame for the other.
This method of campaigning gets no-
where. Many who are well qualified

Continuing, lie urged that cool calm

The effect of Dean Cooley's speech
