Investigation Into
Arizona Elections
(By Associated Press)
PHOENIX, Oct. 29.-Louis B. Whit-
'ney, chairman of the Democratic
state central committee today made
public a statement in which he in-
sisted that a subpoena be issued for
G. Hnry Stetson, of Philadelphia,
for appearance at the hearing to be
conducted here by the Senate cam-
paign funds committee into alleged
irregularities in Arizona campaign ex-
penditu res.
The investigation will open late
Saturday upon the arrival of Senator
W. H. King, Democrat, Utah, who will
conduct the inquiry and Senator
Ralph H. Cameron, Republican, Ari-
zona, who instigated it.
In his statement, Whitney charges
that Stetson was "alleged to have
been a large contributor to Cameron's
campaign fund in 1920. Senator
James A. Reed, Missouri, chairman of
the campaign funds committee had
previously said that the committee
would have no time to go into the 1920
campaign charges.
Whitney also named for a subpeona

Management Promises More Specific
Reports On Individual
More detailed play-by-play results
of the Michigan-Navy football game,
which will be played today in Balti-
mgre, will be given by the grid-graph
board at Hill auditorium than for any
game in the past. The management
believes this will be assured by the
new contract which holds with Wes-
tern Union, specifying that the in-
dividual reports shall be longer and
more specific. It is also expected that
the efficiency of the grid-graph will
be increased because of the fact that
both of the operators have had two
years previous experience. John M.
Bennett, '27L, will work the ball on
the board, while Charles D. Livin-
stone, '28L, will control the lights.
Immediately after every play occurs
on the Baltimore field, the man mak-
ing the play, yardage gained or lost,
the man on the defense who stopped
the play, and other information will
be furnished to the audience by means
of lights.
Results of other games will be an-
nounced betwen halfs and intermis-
sions by Royal F. Cherry, '26.
The feature of the day will be the
parade of the Reserve band, which
will play before the game and be-
tween halves. Kenneth C. Midgley,
'28L, will entertain between halves
with several xylophone numbers. One
of the Varsity cheer leaders will be
present to lead the songs and yells.
As previously announced in The
Daily the plan to have reserved seats
will not be followed and the prices
will be as before, 50 cents and 35
cents, for the main floor and balcony,
Reports of the game will begin at
2:30 o'clock, the doors of the auditor-
ium being 'thrown open at 1:30 o'clock.
Tickets are on sale at the Union,
Graham's, Slater's, Wahr's, Hueston's,
George Moe's sport shop, and Calkins-
Fletcher State street and South Uni-
versity drug stores. The box office at
Hill auditorium will also sell tickets
from the time the doors open until
the start of the contest.
Reports of the game will also be

given at the Majestic theatre.

Dry League And Klan
Political activities of the Anti-Sa-
loon league and the Ku Klux Klan
probably will form two important sec-
tions of the report, which will be pr e-
pared by Senator Reed, Democrat,
Missouri, the chairman, who in his
investigations in eastern states has
adduced a mass of testimony touching
upon these two organizations. {
The klan influence in politics was
disclosed during the inquiry into the
muddled situation in Indiana which
Senator Reed conducted at Chicago,
Indianapolis, Kansas City and St.
Louis. Evidence presented at the con-
clusion of this investigation here
Thursday was that high officials of
the klan not only were supporting
Senator James E. Watson, Republican
nominee for re-election, in the pri-
mary campaign early this year, but
made many trips to Indiana to see
that the hooded order "went down the
line for him."
The most startlin'g bit of testimony
came at the end of the hearing when
William M. Rogers of Indianapolis,
a member of the imperial realm of the
klan, asserted that Senator Watson
had shown him a card which served
as an "imperial passport" as "a citi-
zen of the invisible empire."
Senators Deny Charges ,
Senator Watson later issued a state-
ment from his room in a hospital in
Indianapolis in which he denounced
Rogers' testimony as an "infamous
"I never was a member of the klan
and I never ,was invited to join the
klan," Senator Watson said.
A similar denial as to klan mem-
bership was received by Senator Reed
Thursday night from Senator Arthur
R. Robinson, who also is running for
re-election in Indiana on the Repub-
lican ticket. In an affidavit he said he
was not a member of the klan now
and that he never had been a mem-
ber of that organization.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 29.-The posi-
tion of President Coolidge as one of
non-involvement in the senatorial
election in Illinois was announced at
the White House today in a formal
statement. It emphasized that he had

expressed no attitude on the choice
of a senator in that state.
The statement was made public
without comment. Prior to its prepar-
ation the attention of the White House
had been called to a dispatch in to-
day's issue of the Chicago Tribune,
which represented the president as

candidacy of Frank L. Smith, Republi-

Tract Reserved For
Navy Storage Depot
Near Pacific Coast
"'Y Associated 'Press)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 29.-Finding a
site for the Navy's projected ammuni-
tion depot within a 1,000 mile radius
of Pacific coast points moved a step
nearer accomplishment today when a
1,000 acre tract near Hawthorne,
mineral county, Nevada, was reserved
by the interior department for that
use if desired.
The tract withhld from settlement
by executive order, is 20 miles south
of Reno, in the Walker lake district.
The Navy department pointed out,
however, that the action of the in-
terior authorities did not necessarily
mean that the station would be con-
structed on the reservation.
Establishment of a storage depot
within reach of Pacific centers is in-
cluded in the Navy program provid-
ing for two ammunition depots for
high explosives as recommended by
the naval court of inquiry into the
explosion which wrecked the depot
at Lake Denmark, New Jersey on July
10. Western Nevada is understood to
be the locality favored because of its
nearness to the Los Angeles, San
Diego, San Francisco, and Columbia
river areas, but other sites are under
Stresses Importance Of High Grade
Intelligence and Energy For
Successful Evangelist
Declaring that the day of the mere-
ly "good" missionary was past, A. D.
Helser, A. M., internationally known
foreign missionary, stressed the need
for men of high grade intelligence
and energy in missionary work, in a
speech delivered last night under the
auspices of the Student Volunteer
group in the Lane Hall auditorium.
Mr. Helser, who was a representa-
tive at the International conference
on Africa, held this year in Belgin,
has spent four years as missionary
and explorer in West Central Africa
and has written a book on Nigeria
1 that is considered by critics as the
best work on exploration since the
days of Livingston and Stanley.
The speaker also declared that the
evanglization of the world is not at
all impossible, and expressed the
I opinion that within not so very many
years, comparatively speaking, will
come about. The youth of the na-
tion, in his opinion, face three
possible courses. There is a high
way and a low way, and. also the
middle ground, which he denounced
as being unworthy of the attention of
"Mere willingness to do something
is not enough," Mr. Helser continued,
"For one might be willing to receive
an education without effort or be
wealthy or great but if he did not
have the will, the all important fac-
tor, he could not succeed." He said
that in his experience he had seen
missionaries who themselves did not
believe in God, and added that the
young man who was a doctor or other-
wise professionally equipped was
worth many times more in the mis-
sion field than the merely theologic-
ally trained student.
Mr. Helser plans to return to the
central Africa region within a few
weeks, declaring that there is an ir-
resistable attraction to work of this
kind. He will also continue there his
work in exploration, for which he was

until Sunday, and students interested

terview him at Lane Hall.

Michigan's Leader
In Eastern Battle


Will lead the Wolverines against'
the strong Navy eleven this after-l
noon in the Baltimore municipal sta-
dium in a clash between two teams
unbeaten so far this year.
Schermerhorn, Frensdorf and Dansard
Also Speak At Rally Of
Speaking in place of gubernatorial
nomntnee William A. Comstock, '99,
who was unable to attend the meeting
ag scheduled, Alfred Lucking, former
congressman, of Detroit, proposed a
non-partisan or pure Australian bal-
lot for state elections in Michigan, at
the county Democratic rally at the
Armory last night. Mr. Lucking
pointed out that there is no issue irt
state politics which is peculiar to
either party, and that is, therefore,
hard to distinguish between the funda-
mental principles of the tvio. He based
his 'opposition to the present admin-
istration rather on its action in gov-
ernment than on any questions to be
defined as partisan.
In discussing the present contest,'
Mr. Lucking 'asserted that the Re-
publican nominee for governor, in his
primary campaign, strongly, opposed
the present administration in an effort
to succeed it in leading the party, but
now is making every effort to ally
that same faction, denouncing those
who "would create a rift in the party."
James Schermerhorn, formerly edi-
tor of the Detroit Times, and one of
the Detroit candidates for the state
l.egislature, emphasized the import-
ance of the minority in politics, show-
ing how it provided for keen compet-
ition in discussing legislation, and
thus brought out the best arguments
of each faction. This, he stated, must
be the most important function of the
Democratic party in Michigan. Mr.
Schermerhorn commended the inter-
est shown in politics by the University
community, as well as the frank dis-
cussion of issues by the candidates.
Boyes Dansard, nominee for Con-
gressman from this district, explained
his reasons for favoring government
control of liquor distribution, and Ed-
[ward Frensdorf, who opposed Gover-
nor Alex Groesbeck for the governor-
ship two years ago, set forth the in-
tention of the party to cut the cost
of government if it won control in the
election Tuesday.
Horatio J. Abbott, chairman of the
State Central committee, opened the
meeting, which was presided over by
George Burke, of Ann Arbor, nominee
for the state supreme court bench.
