Will Tell Story
Of Royal Courts

DETROIT, Dec. 7.-Advocating the
immediate erection of a stadium seat-
ing 75,000 persons as the only possible
solution to the present problem of 1
ticket distribution for Wolverine foot-
ball games, Coach Fielding H. Yost
explained the situation at Ann Arbor
andashowed why the proposed stadium
is a necessity in his address at the
banquet given by the University of
Michigan club of Detroit in honor of
the Michigan team here tonight.
"No one regrets more than. the
Board in Control of Athletics that it
was forced to deny ticket applications
and refund the excess money received.
But the board has no choice. You
cannot put a gallon of water into a
pint measure. You cannot sell one
seat to three or four persons. There
are only 47,000 seats available; this is
twice as great a number as were
available four years ago, and yet is
woefully insufficient.
Plan Golf Course
"No one realizes thenecessity for
an adequate stadium more than does
the Board in Control of Athletics, I
can assure you. This board has al-
ready approved general plans for a
new stadium, and the purchase of 120
additional acres of land. On a part
of this land the new stadium will be
located, and on the other part, an 18
hole University golf course."
Coach Yost declared that the Uni-
versity athletic officials are attempt-
ing to provide seats for supporters of
visiting teams, the steadily increasing
student body, the faculty, the alumni,
which is increasing each year at a
-minimum rate of 2,000 and the citi-
zens and taxpayers of the state of
"In my judgment," he told the
alumni who attended the bianquet,
there is no question of the Univer-
sity's obligation to serve all these in-
terests. As a state institution, own
ership of which is vested in the peo-
ple of the state whose taxes make the
institution possible, it certainly owes
an obligation to every citizen in the
state. If a taxpayer wishes to visit
the University and chooses to do it on
the occasion of a football game, he
should not be denied.
"Fortunately, the plans as present-
ed by the Board in Control of Athlet-
ics and approved by the directors of
the General Alumni association, take
all these factors into consideration.
The proposed stadium will furnish
75,00 seats.
Answers Crites
Answering a criticism that has re-
ceived publicity on the University
campus, Yost denied that Michigan is
concerned with what Is done at other
universities, notably Ohio, Illinois,
Minnesota, Pennsylvania or Califor-
nia. "This is not a 'stadium race'
with any other institution," he told
the Detroit university men. "It makes
no difference to Michigan what other
universities may have done." He re-
ferred to the erection of a great stadia
by other universities merely as exam-
ples of what other schools had done
when faced by the same situation.
"That other universities have pre-
ceded Michigan in this move influ-
ences the local authorities only in
that it strengthens their belief that
the plan is not a radical one," he de-
In citing evidence to prove the ab-
surdity of the "stadium race" charges,
Yost gave the examples of the expan-
sion of the University library at Ann
Arbor, and of the hospital, the mu-
seum, the engineering shops, the needs
of each which has been met by the
construction of a new building
"Would it not have been absurd to
argue against any of these neede
buildings," he asked, "on the ground
that Michigan should not enter a
'building race' with other universitie
that were putting up similar struc
tures? Michigan needed all .these
buildings and went about it to ge
them, independent entirley of the ac
tion of institutions."

NEW YORK, Dec. 7.-Red Grange

week-end visit to New York .
The former hero of college grid-
irons, now starring as a professional
with the, Chicago Bears, left the city
this afternoon for Washington to ful-
fill a playing engagement there to-j
morrow after realizing close to $400,-

hours on his fame and name.
The climax of Grange's financialI
operations, now as sensational as any
of his performances on the football
field, was the signing of a motion pic-
ture contract today under which he
was immediately handed a check for
$300,000, representing a flat guaran-

$30,000 for participating in the 19-7

Opposing deferred fraternity rush-'
ing of any kind, and backing up the
decision with letters from universi-
ties where deferred systems have
been tried, which were unanimous in,
their disapproval of the change, the
committee of the Interfraternity coun-
cil which has been considering rush-
ing since last September, yesterday
offered its report, which strongly
recommends the continuation of the
present system.I
The question will be ,discussed at i
fraturnity meetings this week, whenI
delegates to the council will be in- I
structed as to the attitude of their
respective houses in time for the finall
vote on the question which will be
taken at a special meeting of the
council next Monday. An unofficial
vote on the question yesterday showed
27 houses opposed to any changes in
the present rushing rules and 11 in

The report of the committee, which
consisted of Richard Barton, '26, Jack-
son Stith, '26, Walker Everett, '26,
John P. Rowe, '26, and Sterling Smith,
'26, lists 14 reasons why none of the
proposed systems of pledging later in
the year would work satisfactorily at
Michigan. Chief among these objec-
tions, the report stresses the follow-;
1. Deferred rushing would divide
the student body more distinctly into;
fraternity and independent groups,I
and would tend to break up school
spirit, not add to it.j
2. The fraternity life of a college
,man would be cut to three years,j
which, if fraternity life is an advan-'
tage, would not be benficial.
3. Deferred pledging h'as not work-
f ed with any degree of success at col-
leges similar to Michigan, notably
Leland Stanford and Wisconsin.

Presents Ideals Of Weekly Journals
As Possible Means Of Solving
Present Day Problems
i~ -
Pleading for a free and independent
press, Oswald Garrison Villard, edi-
tor of the Nation, cited some examples
of journals that give hope of achiev-
ing that end, after criticizing the pres-
ent day newspaper as capitalistic and.
imperialistic, in the Natural Science
auditorium yesterday.
He said that American papers have
given the people "the most terrible{
orgy of lying in the press, since 1914, 1
that was ever manifested in any1
country." Mr. Villard said, however,
that the newspaper, having grown to
be a business rather than a profes-3
sion, had been subject to the same
economic forces as any other business,
and indicated that with the develop-
ment of the commercial interests of
the journals, the development of capi-
talistic tendencies was quite natural.".
Sees Big Problimns
Suppression of competition was the
cause given by Mr. Villard for the re-
cent consolidations of many promi-
nent organs. He cited instances' of
cities which possessed only one news-
paper, saying that they were becom-
ing more numerous continually. This
and that strength of the chain papers
such as those of the Booth interests!
in Michigan, have brought up an im-
portant problem, the disappearance of
the "other side representative." The
American governmental system, he ex-t
plained, is based on an intelligent and
enlightened electorate and on the two
party organization. If modern ten-
dencies leave only one newspaper in
any city, he asked, "What will become,
of the theory that all sides of a ques-
tion should be presented to the
Today, Mr. Villard stated, papers
develop into business institutions, and
it is natural for their managers to
lean toward the "Chamber of Com-
merce crowd", and to sympathi e with.
men of capital who control big finan-
cial enterprises. The distinction be-
tween party organs has greatly de-
creased, and such questions as tax
problems have become no longer party
disputes. The newspapers present a
narrow point of view, they are class
organs, and do not present the aspira-
tions of the people. This is partly
due, he said to physical forces. For
instance, in New York there are more
than 500 meetings of various sorts
every day. It would be impossible to
cover all of these, and from that fact
has devoleped the accusation that cer-
tain groups are ignored intentionally.
This accusation, in turn, has in many
cases some foundation. The papers
feel that they must stand for the in-
terests of the wealthy, and the people
feel that they are not represented.

Princess Cantacuzene
Is Authority On Political Conditions;
Will Describe Life In Washington
And In Czar's Court


Princess Cantacuzene, granddaugh-
ter of Gen. U. S. Grant, will give the
fifth lecture of the season course of the ]
Oratorical association at 8 o'clock to-
night in Hill auditorium. Her sub-It
ject will be: "My Life Here, and,

The princess has earned an inter-
national reputation as a writer, and
her lecture work has taken her not
only to all parts of the United Statest
but to Europe as well. In recent years!
her articles on Russia, published int
the Saturday Evening Post and other c
magazines have attracted much- at-!
tention, while her series of articles
on conditions in Europe, written dur-
ing the past summer, were widely i
In her lecture Princess Cantacuzene
will tell of her childhood memories;
of General Grant and other celebrities
of the Civil war period. She will also;
relate later experiences in New York
and Washington society and her de-j
but at European courts, where she
met the Emperor of Austria and other
notables. She will describe her life
in Russia before the World war, when
she was a frequent visitor at'the court
of the Czar and met many titled men
and women who figured conspicuously
in the tragedies which followed the.
Bolshevik revolution.
In the early stages of the Russian
uprising the princess left Russia with
her family and thus escaped being
numbered among the victims of the
massacres instigated by the Bolshevik
leaders. The great estates of the
Cantacuzenes were seized, however,
and most of their other possessions,
were lost. After finding refuge inf
America the princess established a I
home in Washington. Since then she
has been a leader in social activities,
and has won recognition as a writer
and speaker.
Princess Cantacuzene was born in
the White House in Washington dur-
ing the presidency of her grandfather.
In 1898, after being presented to so-
ciety, she lived for a time in Wash-
ington. During the war with Spain,
her father, Frederick Dent Grant, re-
ceived the appointment of military
commander of Porto Rico. At the close
of the war she accompanied her aunt,
Mrs. Potter Palmer, of Chicago, on an
extensive tour, visiting London, Paris,
Rome, the Nile, Palestine, and Greece.
In Rome she saw a great deal of Ital-
ian society and attended some bril-
liant social functions. A few weeks

[ajority Party Amends Rules After
Vote Of 208 To 196-Senate
Opening Is Quiet
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 7.-Amid color-
ul and turbulent scenes in the House,
end utter calm in the Senate, the 69th
ongress put under way today its first
end long ses'sion.
A small group of insurgents started
he fireworks in the House, but de-
spite their opposition the Republican
najority rolled up with the Coolidge
andslide of 1924, moved on to victory
n every test of strength.
Name Floor Leader
Nicholas Longworth, of Ohio, for-
ner Republican floor leader, was
lected speaker in a three-cornered
ace in which the Democrats sup-
orted Finis J. Garrett, of Tennessee,
heir floor chief, and the insurgents
ast their ballots for Henry Allen
ooper, of Wisconsin. The vote was:
Longworth 229; Garrett 173; Cooper
3. Five voted present.
Formal announcement of the elec-
ion of Mr. Longworth was greeted
with applause and when the new
speaker was escorted into the cham-
er on the arm of Representative Gar-
"ett, he was. given an ovation in
vhich both the House membership
and the crowded galleries joined.
With the organization preliminaries
ver, the next test of strength was on
a proposal of the Republican leaders
:o amend the rules so as to make more
ifficult the discharge of a committee
rom the consideration of legislation
eferred to it. Here again the Repub-
icans won, but by a narrow margin,
he vote being 208 to 196. Several of
he regulars joined with the insur-
ents and Democrats in opposing the

rhe program mapped out by the Re-
publican leaders was carried through
with no semblance of debate and the
ession lasted only 25 minutes. Three
new senators, LaFollete of Wisconsin,
Robinson of Indiana, and Williams of
Missouri, were sworn in, and organ-
zation was completed with the elec-
tion of Edwin P. Thayer of Indian-
apolis, as secretary of the Senate.
Only one question had threatened to
discourage the calm of the opening
session and that was smoothed out
just before the gavel fell. This was
whether there should be immediate
discussion of the right of Gerald P.
Nye, of North Dakota, to a Senate
seat as the appointee . of Governor
Sorlie. Friends of Mr. Nye had the
subject referred to committee.
Two Draw Interest
As the proceedings moved forward,
two figures on the Senate floor held
the attention of the crowded galleries.
They were Vice-President Dawes, who
only recently returned from his cam-
paign over the country for a change
of Senate rules, and Robert Marion
LaFollette, who, as the successor of
his father as a senator from Wiscon-
sin, gained the distinction of being the
youngest man to sit in this body in
more than half a century.

Members of the University . athletic
coaching stafl, the Ann Arbor high
school football team, and the teaching
staff of the athletic department, will
be guests of the Chamber of Com-
merce at a dinner tomorrow night at
the Chamber of Commerce inn. The
banquet will be in the form of a re-
ception to the high school squad and
the two coaching staffs, and will re-
place theuregular Tuesday luncheon
of the club.
Fielding H. Yost, director of inter-
collegiate athletics, will give the ad-
dress of the evening. He has chosen
for his subject, "The Six Big Plays of
the Year." Regent Junius E. Beal
will act as toastmaster.
Dean Day Speaks
- n _ r m w

Mr. Villard reminded the audience
of some of the prominent newspaper
men of the past, saying that the day
of great editors and responsible edi-
tors was past, and that there should
be in the newspaper some outstanding
person who could be held responsible
for the paper's actions. He explained
how Adolph Ochs, of the New York,
Times, has submerged himself in his
journal in an attempt to build up a
great impersonal institution. As an
example of this he said that Mr. Ochs
jmade no announcement of the appoint-
ment of the new managing editor.
