Proposal To Expend Between $300,000
And $400,000 For Independent
Candidate Is lilselosed
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, Oct. 1.-Delving into
Illinois' bitterly contested senatorial
campaign, the Senate campaign funds
committee heard testimony today
about a $300,000 or $400,000 campaign
fund raised or proposed to be raised
in the interests of Hugh S. Magill, of
Chicago, independent candidate.
Two dry leaders-F. Scott McBride,
national superintendent, and George
B. Safford, state superintendent of the
Anti-Saloon league-quote a Methodist
minister, the Rev. Robert O'Brien of
Chicago, as saying that it was pro-
posed to expend that amount of money
for Magill and that there were enough -
"holes" in the corrupt practices act to
get by on a big campaign program.
Called To Testify
Both Magill and the Rev. O'Brien
were summoned to appear before the
committee for questioning as to the
genesis of the Magill candidacy and
the financing that has been done to
date. This may lead to the summon-
ing of a number of other witnesses.
Resuming its inquiry here after a re-
cess of nearly three months, the com-
mittee in the person of Senator Reed,
Democrat, Missouri, took no steps
looking to an inquiry into the politi-
cal situation in Indiana where there
has been charges of Ku Klux Klan
domination through UniteduStates
Senators. Senator Reed stated that
he had not decided whether he would
go into that subject.
Safford and McBride were the prin-
cipal witnesses of the day and the
former was questioned somewhat
sharply by Reed as to the Anti-Saloon
league of the Frank L. Smith candi-
dacy, in view of the -revelations heret
last summer that $250,000 had been
spent on behalf of that candidate in
the primary and that part of this sumt
came from officials of public utilities.
Condemns Expenditures ,
Condemning the expenditure of such
sums for political purposes, Safford
said his organization realized the fu-I
tility of supporting an independent t
candidate and consequently had to
pick out the dry candidates nominat-
ed by the two major political parties.t
Safford testified that when the Rev.
O'Brien first approached him on the
senatorial situation it was with a pro-l
posal that the state Anti-Saloon league
support Col. A. Z. Smith, state attor-
ney of Lake county, stating that in-
fluences were at work to get Frank L.f
Smith to withdraw.1
To Eliminate Smith
Questioned by Reed, the witness saidl
O'Brien had told him that it was pro-
posed to eliminate Frank Smith by
having the Coolidge administration
give him an appointment to office.-
Both Safford and McBride quoted
O'Brien as saying that even if Magill
could not be elected his candidacy
would at least result in the election
of George E. Brennan, the Democratic
senatorial nominee.t

In Science Building,

Professor Emeritus Lucien Levy-J
Bruhl, professor of history of modern1
philosophy at the Sorbonne in Paris,
will lecture at 4:15 today in Natural

'Primitive Mentality." P r o f essor
J~evy-Bruhl is the author of several

Patton Believes Social Life In Large
School More Broadening Than In Small


Statistics Show Union Accommodates
Great Crowds On Football Week-Ends

In the opinion of Dr. Carl Safford
Patton, of the Chicago Theological
seminary, social life at a large uni-
versity such as Michigan affords a
broadening influence which is far
greater than' that obtainable in the
small college. "I believe that the life
is more liberal and more human in a
large co-educational institution- far
more so than at a small men's or wo-
men's college," remarked the former
Ann Arbor minister in an interview
following his address at the student
convocation Sunday.
Dr. Patton does not see any excuse
for alarm over the trend of modern
youth nor does he feel that morals are
endangered at a co-educational insti-
tution any more than among a segre-
gated student body. "If a student,
man or woman, is intent upon study
-which is really the primary purpose
for which he is sent to college-he will
take care of the morals, and the rest
of it himself. As far as the desirabil-
ity of co-education is concerned, it is
necessary and unavoidable at a stat
university unless separatecolleges
for each are established by the state."
In contrast to the views of Dr. Al-
bert Parker Fitch of Carleton college,
on the marriage question, Dr. Patton
expressed the opinion that no definite
ages could be laid down for marriage.
"We cannot say when to marry or
Governor Who Dismissed University
Head Faces Charges Specifying
Violation of Office
(By Associated Press)
SEATTLE, Wash., Oct., 18.-A pe-
tition for the recall of Gov. Roland
H. Hartley of Washington, was filed
with the secretary of state today.
The petition charges the executive
with violating his office and the comI
mission of wrong acts in office.
Committees of ctiens, including
labor union men, immediately prepar-
ed to campaign for 97,576 signatures
to the petition, the number required
for holding a recall election.
Recall proceedings against Gover-j
nor Hartley are the direct outgrowth
of the dismissal of Dt. Henry Suzzalo
as president of the University of
Dr. Suzzallo was ousted by a vote
of the members of the university board
of regents appointed by Hartley.
The recall petition charges the ex-
ecutive with appointing members of
the legislature to administrative posi-
tions for the "purpose of preventing;
the free expression of the will of the
people through their representatives
in the legislature.". Concerning ap-
preciation and levies for state insti-
tutions, including institutions of high-
er education, it was charged that the
governor "failed; neglected and refus-'
ed" to enforce them and since their'
passage, "has attempted to prevent
and has prevented" their enforcement.'

After nine years as editor of the

which was then known as "Detroit To-'

manager for 21 years.

Since that time he has become noted
as a speaker on questions regarding
the ethics of journalism- and holds,
among his ideas, the position that
newspapers should be totally inde-
pendent of business or social ties.
