SCoinstlock Believes That His Ticket Is
Best Eger Offered To Voters
01 Michigan
(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, Nov. 1. -- Democratic
campaign guns boomed tonight right
up to the zero hour for the opeping
of polls for tomorrow's state elections,
while Republican leaders spent their
final day quietly, trying to figure just1
how big would be their majority.
While Mayor Fred W. Green of Ionia
indicated that he expected to win by
the usual large Republican majority,
his Democratic opponent for the gov-
ernorship, William A. Comstock of
Detroit, issued a statement of confi-
dence in Democratic victory. Com-
stock completed his campaign tonight,
addressing a rally at Monroe. Green
returned to Ionia early in the day.
Candidates ConfidentE
Comstock predicted victory not only
for himself and the entire Democratic
state ticket which includes one woman
candidate, but expressed the belief
that his party would make inroads in-
to the solid Republican congressional
ranks from Michigan and would also
win some state legislature seats. 1
Mayor Green confined his pre-elec-
tion statements to thanking the peo-
ple of the state for the manner in
which they have received him and1

After Speaking Tour
Through The West
After completing a speaking tour
of the large alumulI bodies of the West
and the Pacific coast, and attending
the national Michigan banquet in
Philadelphia last Friday night, Pres-
ident Clarence Cook Little returned
to Ann Arbor on Sunday afternoon.
Dr. Little stated that he found the
alumni interested and wide awake to
the problems which now face the
University. In general, the attitude
toward the plan of building dormi-
tories seemed to be very favorable,
he said.
Visits to all the great universities
of the west have shown that Michigan
is in the most favorable position to
combine the ideas of the west and the

OCIETY IS O ANE tes Campaign


Half A

Must Attain Average
and Half B In Order
To Be Eligible


Phi Eta Sigma, honorary scholastic
society for freshmen in the literary,
engineering, and architectural col-
leges, was informally organized at a
meeting of the prospective members
held yesterday in the Union. It is
planned to hold the installation and
initiation banquet on Nov. 19, at
which Dean Thomas Arkle Clark, of
the University of Illinois, has been
linvited to be present.
Phi Eta Sigma is an honorary so-
I ciety for freshmen, designed to cor-
respond to Phi Beta Kappa in the
senior class, its purpose being to en-
courage scholastic efforts of freshmen.
Dean Clark of Illinois originated the
idea behind it and the first chapter
was established there in 1923. Last
spring a chapter was installed at
the University of Missouri. Other
chapters will be established in the
Middle-west this year.
Fifty Charter Members
All freshmen who attain an average
of half "A" and half "B" grades are
eligible to membership. This can be
attained either in the first semester
or for the entire year's average. A
list of the members of last year's
freshman class was made up by J. A.
Bursley, dean of students, of those
with the necessary average and from
this group of approximately 50 sopho-
mores will be composed the Michigan
The society will sponsor 'a smoker
and a banquet each semester. Oc-
casional meetings will take place at
which subjects of scholastic nature
will be discussed. The society urges
its members to enter into campus ac-
tivities. The emblem of the organiza-
tion is a key in the form of a scroll..
At Illinois, a list of the members of
the society is placed in the year book
and the members hold friendships
'through their four years.
Permanent officers will be elected
at the installation banquet. For the
present Dean Bursley will be in
charge until the society gets under
way. Jo H. Chamberlin, '28, has been
appointed senior advisor of the so-

The games will begin promptly at

"America's Egypt" Is Name AIplied
To Territory Where Ancient
Civilization Existed
Discoveries of a remarkable civili-
zation which flourished on the Amer-
ican continent thousands of years ago,
rivalling even that which existed In
ancient Egypt, will be the subject of
a lecture to be delivered by Gregory
Mason, author and explorer, who will
speak in Hill auditorium at 8:00
o'clock tonight as the second lecturer
on the annual series of the Oratorical
association. Mr. Mason's subject will
be "The Lost Cities of Yucatan."
The speaker has recently returned
from the Yucatan penninsula where,
'in conjunction with Dr. Herbert
Joseph Spinden, anthropologist and
archaeologist, Mr. Mason headed an
expedition which visited the 'sites of
five prehistoric cities, hitherto un-
known. The uncovered palaces, tem-
ples, tombs, and other remains of the
'ancient civilization.
The lecture will b illustrated with
stereoptican slides made from pictures
taken on the last expedition, and on
two previous expeditions which the
'explorer has made to the country. The
last investigation he made there was
in conjunction with the Peabody mus-
eum of Harvard.
Country Uncivilized
The country is almost entirely un-
civilized, and before the explorers
could make their way through the
juggle they were forced to make
fr ends of the Maya Indians, which in-
habit thearea. The onlyntrails or
roads in the whole pennnsula are
those which representatives of the
b,American Chicle company have es-
At Muyil, one of the cities discov-
ered, Mr. Mason found a subterranean
chamber in a teipple with several
passages leading to still deeper cham-
bers whichmay contain articles of
rare value, and which will be explor-
ed later. In another of the cities,
.eight buildings were found in a fair
state of preservation, and only the
fact that Mr. Mason contracted a se-
vere case of malarial fever prevented
the expedition from making even more
complete investigations. As it was,
a number of objects of immense arch-
aeological and historical value were
Language Lik Greek
The language of the people in this
region contained a large number of
words similar to Greek and Latin,
and the explanation for this fact is
only found in the submerged contin-
ent of Atlantis, connecting South
America with Africa and which is
'estimated to have been lost 11,000
years ago. There were also large
numbers of relics and remains un-
covered which resembled closely those
of other civilizations on the other side
I of the globe.
This civilization, Mr. Mason be-
lieves, existed even before that of an-
cient Egypt and it was in many re-
spects just a far advanced.
The country through which the ex-
plorers passed is now inhabited by
the uncivilized Maya Indians, which
made it difficult for the party to proa'n
