Talks By Oakman And Representative
Of Faculty; Band And Cheers
Complete Program
Coach Fielding H. Yost, speaking in
the field house named in his honor
for the-first time since its dedication
two years ago, will address the last
pep meeting of the year at 7:30
o'clock tonight, ,on the eve of his
team's battle with Minnesota for the
possession of the "Little Brown Jug"
and the championship of the West.
In addition to Michigan's head
coach, Edmund S. Shields, '96L, who
played for five years on Wolverine
baseball teams, and Charles Oakman,
'26, will urge support of the team that
has conquered four Conference rivals
and crushed the naval academy and
holds a commanding position in the
race for the Big Ten title. A member
of the faculty who will be selected
by the Student council today will be
the fouith speaker.,
Band To Parade
f The Varsity band will meet at 7:101
at Morris hall and march down State I
street to the field house in time to
lead off with "The Victors" at 7:30
o'clock. The speakers will talk from
the balcony at the north end of the
building, and the students will be
seated in the stands which are used
during the basketball season. It will
be the first time that the Yost field
house has ever been used for a pep
meeting, the change being taken by
the council when it was learned that
dill auditorium would not be avail-
able for a pep meeting tonight.
Shields Speaks Again
Mr. Shields, the alumni speaker, is
the man who encouraged Michigan'
two years ago on the eve on a Minne-
sota game, when the Wolverines faced
the battle with five regulars and six
substitutes in the lineup. The victory 1
the following afternoon gave Michi-
gan another championship of the West
and another year's possession, of the
"Little Brown Jug", which has not;
been to Minneapolis since the Gophers I
captured it in 1919.
Cheerleaders will be on hand to
perfect the cheers that Michigan will
use tomorrow in the stadium. Ken-
neth C. Kellar, '26, president of the
Student council, will introduce the
speakers. The final preparation for
the last game of the 1925 season will
be concluded when the, band plays
"The Yellow and Blue."

Michigan and Minnesota will
battle tomorrow for the posses-
sion of the renovated "Little
Brown Jug." The famous water
bottle, which was stolen from
Michigan by the Gophers back in
1903 and which has been the
object of nine gridiron games
since that time, has been re-
painted a glossy brown and now
bears the two "M"s of the uni-
versities that seek its possession.
It seems the scores of the
games, which have been painted
on the jug each year after Michi-
gan or Minnesota victories, have
been effaced by time or railroad
rides between Minneapolis and
Ann Arbor, so Coach Yost order-
ed a new paint job for the trophy
and today it shines with a new

Griffith Gives
Official Stand
On Red Grange
i(By Associated Press)
BUFFALO, N. Y., Nov. 19.-A col-
lege football player who signs a con-
tract to play professionally automati-
cally loses his amateur standing. This
was the ruing laid down today by
Maj. John L. Griffith, western-confer-
ence commissioner, relative to reports
that Harold "Red" Grange had agreed
to play professional football after
winding up his college career in the1
Illinois-Ohio State game Saturday.I
Major Griffith said that the confer-
ence had no official rule on such an
eventuality, but asserted that the con-
ferenceboard of directors hador-
dained that in the case of baseball, a
player who signed a professionl coxn-
tract automatically lost his amateur
standing. He said this rule would
apply to any other sport.
He said he was positive that Grange
had signed no contract to play pro-
feisionalefootball. He said he had in-
vestigated reports to this effect, be-
lore he left the middle west to come
here to make a number of addresses.

started "had proved the truth of vir-
tually every charge the court had
been called to hear." He insisted,
however, that the testimony of the
Honolulu witnesses was essential to
the trial records, whether it be given
by stipulation or in person.
The prosecution held that the stipu-
lations wanted by the defense were
extremely damaging to its side of the
case, but recognized that a refusal to
agree to stipulations would put the
blame on its shoulders for indefinitely
halting the trial.

Michigan Technic
To A ppear Today
Michigan Technic, official publica-
tion for the students, faculty, and
alumni of the Colleges of Engineer-
ing and Architecture, will appear to-,
day on the campus for the first time
this year.
Opening the November issue is the
frontispiece, a portrait of the late
Edward De Mille Campbell, the first
professor of chemical engineering of
the University. The issue includesI
a biography of his life, by George M.
Stanley, '27E.
Depicting the ceaseless continuityl
of industry, the cover gives a night
view of the skyline of the rubber fac-
tory buildings at Dayton, Ohio. The1
opening article of the magazine is3
a treatment of "Transportation inj
India" by B. S. Sindu, '27E, an In-
dian student in the civil engineering
department. With the aid of several
cuts showing views of Indian moun-
tain roads, rivers, and ferries, he pre-,
sents the historical growth of the rail-
road and its recent problems. "The

fairs of government.
"When government enters the field
of business with its great resources,"
he said, "it has a tendency to extrava-
gance and inefficiency, but having the
power to crush all competitors, like-
wise closes the door of opportunity
and results in monopoly."
Comments On Taxation
During his speech the President re-
iterated his belief that there must be
continued effort toward government
economy and efficiency with resulting,
tax reduction; expressed the view that
no permanent stabilization of Euro-
pean finances and currency can be
accomplished without a definite ad-'
justment of the debts owed by var-
ious nations abroad to the United
States, and advocated a new Ameri-
can adhesion to the World court pro-
"If a contest could be held to deter-
mine how much those who are really
prominent in our government life
know about business and how much
those who are really prominent in
our business life know about govern-
ment," continued the President, "it is
my firm conviction that the prize
would be awarded to those who aref
in government life. This is as itl
ought to be, for those who have thez
greater authority ought to have the1
greater knowledge.
Advocates Sympathy
"But it is my even firmer convic-
tion that the welfare of our country<
could be very much advanced through,
a better knowledge by both of those
parties of the multifold problems with
which each has to deal."
Emphasizing the "desirability of the
largest possible independence between
government and business", the Exe-
cutive expressed the opinion that
"each ought to- be sovereign in its own
sphere." When government comes un-
duly under the influence of business,"
he added, the tendency is to develop
an administration which "closes the
door of opportunity; becomes narrow
and selfish in its outlook, and results
in an oligarchy."
With a declaration that real and
solid progress has been made in the
development of American business,
particularly in its relation with the
government, the President said there"
in ""ed for further improvement
in transportation facilities by develop-
ment of inland waterways; need for"
railroad consolidations; need for im-
provement of railroad terminals for

ment ought not to be and is not con-
mitted to certain methods of acquisi-
tion which, while partaking of the
nature of unfair practices try to mas-
querade under the guise of business,"
he added, "the government is and
ought to be thoroughly committed to
every endeavor of production and dis-
tribution which is entitled to be desig-
nated as true business. Those who
are so engaged, instead ofpregarding
the government as their opponent and
enemy, ought to regard it as their
vigilant supporter and friend."

Little Greets
Visitors IHere
For Dedication
To those who are today visiting
Ann Arbor on the occasion of the
dedication of the University hos-
pital I wish, for the University,
to say a word of greeting. The
importance to our state of the
event, celebrating the acquisition
of this great building to house
for treatment and tender care its
less fortunate citizens, is obvi-
ous. The completeness and ex-
tent of the facilities -offered
should be a great source of pride.
Far greater, however, should be
the sense of happiness in acknowl-
edging the benefit to the state of
the dedication of the scores and
hundreds of lives given willingly
to the care of the sick and of the
thousands of others who will by
the work of this great medical]
center return, cured of suffering,{
to service and useful citizenship.
The teachings of Christianity
make us certain that in establish-
ing such a great institution the
state of Michigan has done a won-
derful human act to relieve suf-
fering. A quiet, solemn happi-
ness is then the right of those
who today are our visitorsas
well as of those of us whose daily
work will involve responsibility
for proper fulfillment of the hopes
of the state for the future of the
hospital. Inwelcoming them we
wish them to realize above all
else our acknowledgment of this
common bond of friendship and

Will Rogers
And Singers

Here No.25
Will Rogers, the well known Amer-
ican actor and comedian, will appear
in Hill auditorium, Wednesday night,
Nov. 25, under the auspices of the
Ann Arbor branch of the American
Association of University Women. He
is to be assisted in this program by
the De Reske singers, who have ac-
quired a reputation as a "single voice"
Mr. Rogers' rope-whirling skill and
droll humor first earned him a hear-
ing before the public, and his popu-
larity has since become such that he
has appeared in vaudeville, in motion
pictures, and with the- Ziegfeld Follies.
He has chosen the following subjects
as his portion of the program: "All
lI know is what I read in the news-
papers" and "Great Men I have met at
the Stage Door".
The numberswhich will be offered
by the D.e Reske singers include:

Membership Campaign More Than 400
Below Quota Last Night With
Ineonkplete Reports
Because of the fact that the annual
Union life membership drive was more
than 400 below its quota at 10 o'clock
last night, Elliott Chamberlain, '27,
chairman, announced that the cam-
paign will continue all of today and
Monday, despite the fact that 17 team
captains had not submitted their re-
ports when the action of extending
the drive was taken.
A total of 975 new memberships
had been reported last night. The
quota was 1400. The team of Emery
Hatch, '28, which is composed of Clar-
ence Little, '28, Albert Gillingham, '28,
and Paul Hildebrandt, '27, had a sub-
stantial lead for high team honors.
last night with 122 memberships.
Hatch and Little of the same team
were tied for the individual high total
with 55 subscriptions each, after the
incomplete reports had been compiled.
Today and Monday the teams will
not be restricted to territory about
the campus as they were the first
two days of the drive and this is ex-
pected to increase the individual mem-
berships obtained considerably. The
workers will not be asked to seek
subscriptions tomorrow or Sunday.
Chamberlain expressed the opinion
that many of the workers had not
been able to give as much time to the
drive as they had expected to owing
to mid-semester examinations this
week, and attributed the failure to
reach the quota tonight largely to
this fact. He felt certain, he said,
that the 1400 mark would not be
reached even with the late reports
last night, though he was of the opin-
ion that the total would be consid-
erably over 1,000.
Visiting Harriers
Arrive Today For
Conference Meet
All the competing teams in tomor-
row's cross-country run are expected
to arrive in Ann Arbor at 12 o'clock
i today, with the Conference officials
getting here tomorrow morning. The
regular Conference committee will
handle all the details of the race.
As a result of the withdrawal of the
Chicago and Purdue aggregations, the
committee will be composed of eight
representatives,tone from each school.
The visiting teams will walk over
the Varsity course, where tomorrow's
race will be run, this afternoon, so as
to be thoroughly familiar with the
layout before the final gun is fired.
After the race the harriers will be

Wednesday and Saturday forenoons
were given over to state physicians
to bring their patients for diagnosis.
For 25 years the school was entirely
without a hospital; in 1875 an inade-
quate one was established, but 15
years later this institution took defi-
nite shape and began a growth which
has resulted in the building just
Dr. Vaughan, while he congratulat-
ed the University upon the new plant
expressed the hope that the growth
was not yet over, and that auxiliary
hospitals would soon be opened, that
would with the present building make
Ann Arbor one of the greatest medical
centers in America.
Thayer Treats History
Dr. Thayer dealt with the develop-
ment of medical science, in the past
century, and pointed out that this de-
velopment 'required huge clinics where
diagnoses could be made that would
involve far more apparatus than any
one practioner could possibly have at
his command. He also pointed to the
fact that a university where such re-
sources could be secured and could
be used not only for diagnosis but for
instruction as well was the ideal
place for such a clinic. He praised
the foresightedness of the people of
the state of Michigan in supporting
an up-to-date hopsital and clinic in
connection with that university,
Mayo Outlines Purposes
Dr. Mayo outlined the purposes and
advantages of the new institution. He
stated the primary purpose of hos-
pitals and of all surgery was the pre-
vention rather than the cure of dis-
ease. The time has passed, he said,
