Organization Of College Councils To
Be One Of Principal (Projects
Of Governing Body
General consideration of the vari-
ous activities and work to be under-
taken by the Student council this year
will comprise the program at the first
nieeting of the new representatives
this evening in the council rooms
at the Union. The council will meet
every Wednesday at 7:30 o'clock
throughout the school year.
The policy of the Student council
this year will be similar to that of
last with every effort towards even
more comprehensive student govern-
ment than In the past. ,it will be te
chief aim of the council to further
promote student government," Thomas
Cavanaugh, '27L, stated yesterday.
"In addition to the' various activities
planned by the organization from time
to time, particular attention will be
given this year to criticisms and com-
plaints from students in regard to
affairs on the campus. For that pur-
pose, among others, a representative
of the council will be at the Union
from 2 until 5 o'clock daily. Within
the council, the presence of repre-
sentatives at every meeting will be
obligatory with a request for resigna-
tion as the alternative."
Cheering Section Made
The first undertaking of the council
this year is the establihment of the
permanent cheering section. Enroll-
ment in the bloc of 1,200 seats was
conducted all of last week and will
b'e concluded within a few days.
Two University pep meetings have
been arranged for this year on the
eve of important football games, with
'the possibility of a third rally before
the season closes. The meetings al-
ready scheduled will be held in Hill
auditorium preceding the Illinois and
Wisconsin games here.
The Sunday convocations, which
were held in Hill auditorium last
May, when they were regarded as
highly successful, will be resumed this
fall and next spring as planned by the
council. Two convocations are being
arranged for October and two for
November, as the first semester pro-
gram, at which time educational and
religious leaders of national promi-
nence will speak.
Will Conduct Elections
The council will supervise all class
elections this fall as in past years.
Election of officers in the senior,
juhfor, and sophomore classes will be
held in about a month's time although
it is plafned to defer the elections in
the freshman classes until after
Christmas this year. The latter may
not be held until the first of the next
semelter, according to present plans,
In order that members of the first
year classes in the literary and en-
gineering schools may be better ac-
'quainted, and thus better qualified to
select their respective officers. Pre-
siding officers will be appointed in
each class by the council at once, who
will be responsible for calling meet-
ings, and the like, until the regular
officers are elected.
One of the principal new projects
which the council will undertake this
year will be the organization of the
college councils, formulated last
spring in the literary, engineering,
Law, Medical and dental schools. Each
council will hold its first meeting in
the near future for the purpose of
framing its constitution and by-laws
and for. the election of officers within

each college body. The first'meetings
will be called by the general council
and the president of each college
council will automatically become an
ex-officio members of the general,
The council, as usual, will super-
vise and arrange the fall and spring
games between the freshman and
sophomore classes this year.
The National Student Federation of
Colleges and Universities will hold
its annual convention in Ann Arbor,
Dec. 4-6, under the auspices of the
council. This city was selected as the
next meeting place following the con-
vention held at Princeton, N. J., last
winter. Representatives from all
American colleges and universities
will attend the sessions here. The
federation. was founded a few years
ago for the purpose of studying the
life, government, problems and dis-
cipline of students.

The editorial staff of The
Michigan Daily offers practical
newspaper experience and inter-
esting campus associations. Sec-
ond semester freshmen or sopho-
mores who wish to try out are
asked to see the News Editor at

the offices
at once.

The collection was brought together 1
in Egypt and comprises more than
350 documents. Some are fragment- w
ary but many are complete, and per-A
fectly preserved. Nearly all are on4
papyrus; a few are on wax tablets. i
The language is chiefly Greek, but l
there is a select group of Coppic docu-
ments. There is a bilingual papyrus
in Greek and Latin containing a por-g
tion of a report in a law case. On a d
wax tablet is part of a Latin speech in 1
which is a reference to the last year ti
of the reign of the Emperor Hadrian,
139 A.D.
The contents are varied. There ares
petitions, one of which is addressedC
to the governor of Egypt; contracts,
leases, and receipts for money; lists'T
of workmen, statements of accountsI
and the tax rolls; magical charms,
and order for the supply of a donkey
to provide transportation, private let-
ters, and a few fragments of literaryp
work, chiefy verses of epic poetry, in
part Homeric.
Among the dated documents are an
compelte expense account of the yearh
145 or 135 B.C., one foot in lengthi
and three and three-quarters inchesb
wide; a tax receipt dated 162 A.D.;e
an official statement of an amount of
grain delivered at Alexandria in 374a
A.D.; and a surety for tenants remain-r
ing on their holdings dated in 594 A.D. 1

Kreisler, recognized by many as the a
world's greatest violinist, has visited c

Conducts Arctic
Exploration Trip

Haggerty Secures Secretary Of State
Nomination; McKay And Fuller
Are Unopposed
(By Associated Press)
DETOIT, Sept. 28.-The political
machine of Gov. Alex J. Grosebeck
was wrecked today while 300 police-
men kept Groesbeck supporters from
even a glimpse of the catastrophe.
It was a jubilant destruction of a
machine that has been driven in tri-
umph through Michigan Republican-
ism for nearly six years. As uni-
formed officers stood outside Cass
Technical high school denying admit-
tance to 403 Wayne county supporters
of the governor, 888 delegates from
outstate cities and towns were inside
loudly acclaiming Fred W. Green,
nominee for governor and nominating
in its entirety a Green picked slatel
of candidates for minor state offices.
For two years the Groesbeck ma-1
chine has given signs of collapse,'los-
ing an essential part here and there,
yet continuing to lead the way for
Michigan Republicanism. Today saw
the end. There was no crash-just
a sudden collapse of the entire ma-
chine. The entire Green slate for
minor state offices was nominated
without any serious attempt by the
Groesbeck group to prevent it.
Wayne county (Detroit) which or-
dinarily has one-third of the voting
strength of the state convention, had
nothing to say today. The convention,
faced with demands to seat both a
Green and a Groesbeck delegation,
turned thumbs down on bth.
' War clouds that were black last
night and early today, cleared entire-
ly at noon. Mayor John W. Smith of
Detroit, a leader in the Green army,
ordered 300 policemen stationed about
the convention hall or withincall, and
admittance to the hall was denied all
but delegates.
Threatened contest for state offices
did not materialize. John S. Hagger-
ty, leader of Green's forces in Wayne
county, won the nomination for sec-
retary of state from Charles DeLand,
Incumbent, and Groesbeck adherent.
Frank D. McKay, state treasurer, and
0. C. Fuller, auditor general, were re-
nominated without opposition.
Justice Ernest Snow, a Groesbeck
appointee, was renominated to the
state supreme court. He was favored
by Mayor Green.

Preventive Medicine, Hospitalization,ih
Brought About By City Growth, P
Declares President t
"Medicine has undergone a great t
change in the past two decades," de- o
clared President Little in his address e
yesterday in the University hall audi- n
torium before the tannual convocationb
of Medical students.-I
"The rapid growth of cities hasd
brought about the development of two L
comparatively new phases in medicine
-perventive medicine and hospital- t
ization." President Little pointed out
that the congestion in cities necess-p
tated study of preventive medicine inI
order to curb epidemics, while hos-r
pitalization has been brought aboutI
because of the need of capable attend -
ants and for isolation of contagiousi
This new situation brings about the
necessity for closer cooperation be-
tween medicine and its allied sciences.
"The medical science seems to be a
sort of suspended super-structuret
while these allied sciences seem to bet
building its foundation rather inde-
pendently, and there is an increasing
danger that one will not fit the other,"
the speaker pointed out.
President Little also described some
of the connections between medicine1
and some of the tallied sciences, deal-
ing principally with sociology, biol-
ogy, and psychology. He stated that
the physician, should take a sociol-
ogical attitude in treatment of cases.
In conclusion, a warning was given
the medics against overspecialization. I
Don't be just a man of medicine, but
be a doctor of medicine, a teacher, and
a scholar," the president concluded.
Vera Cruz Hit
By Hurricane,
(By Associated Press)
VERA CRUZ, Sept. 28.-Vera Cruz
has been swept by a hurricane, the
most devastating since 1888.
Several ships were sunk in the bay
and the Ward liner San Juan was par-
tially wrecked.
With the great gale came heavy
seas, which flooded the piers and
'drove out those living in that neigh-
borhood, in fear of an inundation.
The streets of Vera Cruz are lit-
tered with fallen trees, but thus, far
not many casualties are rpported.
- There is no word as yet of damage in
the interior.-
MEXICO CIT'Y, Sept. 28. - News
from Vera Cruz, received by the cable
company this afternoon, is that the
city'is inundated, the waters- varying
t from one to five feet; that several
L small ships were sunk in the harbor
by the hurricane and many wooden
houses destroyed. So far as is known,
, there was no loss of life. All the

rave an Interview on the dangers and
-esults of the summer's trip which
e declared successful "far beyond
ny expectation."
Disembarking from Holstenborg,
sreenland, Sept. 7, after nine weeks
>f exploration and investigation, the
>arty of six together with only Capt.
tobert Bartlett, skipper, and four
eamen,, started their dangerous re-
urn on the crippled Morrissey, less
:han 100 feet long, with keel torn off,
nd hull badly damaged and leaking
y grounding on an unchartered reef
fear Cape York. After a day out, the
raft's propellor dropped off, render-
ng the auxiliary engines useless; all
ands were required to man the
umps; food was, rationed -out; .and
he water supply was diminished ,to
ne-half a cup daily and later cut off
Flounder Three Days
By the time the Morrissey reached
he treacherous srtaits of Belle Isle,
inly nine miles wide, a head-on storm
nveloped the ship. Loss of the keel
made the ordinary process of tacking
mpossible and progress could only
be made by the dangerous method of
ibbing. After floundering for three
lays the craft made harbor on the
Laborador coast, and six days later
arrived at North Sydney, Novia Sco-
In addition to Professor Hobbs, the
personnel of the party was as follows:
Prof. Laurence N. Gould, assistant di-
rector, geologist and photographer;
Prof. S. P. Ferguson of the U. S.
Weather bureau, meteorologist and
upper air expert; Prof. G. E. Church
of the University of Nebraska, meteor-
ologist; Ralph L. Belknap of the
geology department, surveyor; and P.
C. Oscanyan, jr., radio operator.
Although navigating through a con-
tinuous ice field the trip from North
Sydney to Greenland was quite un-
eventful, being made with the benefit
of continual sunlight. The base of
operations, named Camp Little in
honor of President Clarence Cook Lit-
tle was established 50 miles east of
Holstenborg and just north of the
Arctc circle on July 7.
Tragedy very nearly overtook the
party on one occasion, when Professor
Gould and Mr. Belknap capsized a
motorized canoe on one of the north-
ern fiords more than a mile from
shore. Before the other members of
the party could reach them, several
Eskimos in their skin-constructed
craft had pulled the scientists out of
the icy water.
Reach Ice Cap
After some preliminary work near
the base, Professor Hobbs accom-
panied by threelmembers of the party
and four Eskimos penetrated the con-
tinent 100 miles in an easterly direc-
tion to the ice cap, where they made
records with meteorological balloons,
survey considerable territory by the
triangularation, and made a general
investigation of the region. Inability
to secure natiive game as planned,
cut the length of this trip from eight
to three days, and necessitated forced
marches on the return.
While at Camp Little the party
maintained wireless communication
with the Morrissey which was investi-
gating other parts of the far north.
News dispatches were received daily
from broadcasting stations in this
country; and stations in all parts of
the world were heard. The Camp Lit-
tle station under the call IXL was the
first short wave outfit to be established
in the Arctic region.
When the schooner Morrissey
grounded, her distress call was picked
up by both the McMillan and the
Hobbs expeditions, which notified the
Danish gunboat cruising those waters.
Assistance was immediately given by
the Danish commander, and the holes
in the hull of the Morrisey were
patched so that, with continual pump-
ing, navigation was possible.
