Night Editor-NORMAN R. THATL
An unlucky star is shining over thei
heads of Michigan alumni with aspira-
tion for prominence in national poli-
tics. Especially does this evil light
appear to be casting its glea. oni
those who are chosen to fill cabinet
When Harding first picked his body
of department heads it was Michigan's
boast that there were more of her'
graduates included in the list than
any other college or university in the
country. But this bombast gradually
died away into silence before the hur-
ricane of Teapot Dome investigations.
Harry Daugherty, erstwhile attorney-
general, proved to be much involved
in the scandal and was forced to re-
si.gn from his office after vigorous
protestations of innocence. Edwin
Denby also became entangled in the
dubious net of political maneuvers,
the result being his retirement from
public life. All of this mixup was;
very complicated, even the investiga-;
tors not being sure just who was
guilty and who was not. To the im-
partial observer, however, it appears
certain that the former Secretary of
the Navy at least had the best of mo-
tives even though his may have been
a mistaken judgment.
But the story does not end here.
Another Michigan man was appointed
to the position of Attorney General.
A few weeks ago the University chest
expanded a few inches when it wasJ
announced . that one of her sons,
Charles Beecher Warren of Detroit,
had . been, appointed to that position
by President Coolidge. But even this
proved to toe premature.. There were
vague rumblings about his associa-
tion as counsel with the sugar ;trust,,
(whatever that may be) and this was
used as a pretext for the opposition
which developed. There is no doubt
that Mr. Warren's qualifications for.
the position were not the cause of the
deadlock-it was purely and simply
petty politics by a few who objected
to the way President Coolidge went
about his appointments to the cabinet,
--the fatal star again.
But Michigan need not hide her
face. Mr. Warren's career has been
a distinguished one, andl he may yet
be made attorney general if the Presi-
dent decides to fight it out. Two other
alumni, Dr. Hubert Work and Harry
New, still retain their cabinet port-
folios. Edwin Denby's name is be-
yond reproach. He was merely the
victim of a bad combination of cir-
cumstances. These are all men of
whom we may be proud despite their1
luck. Perhaps one of these days that
star will cease shining and then-
watch the cabinet.
