Republican Congressiona Candidates
In Michigan Elected With
Large Majorities
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Nov. 3.-The shadow
of an insurgent hand on the control
lever of the new Congress took in-
creasing shape tonight with slowly
mounting election returns.
As far and near districts sent in
their belated votes the Democratic in-
roads into the working majority of the
Republican party had reached such
proportions that it became certain
that the Western insurgents would
hold the balance of power in the
Senate and possible in the House.
Besides gaining seven of the nine
seats constituting the Republican
majority in the senate, the Democrats
reduce by 13 the present Republican
majority of 36 in the house.
Democrats Gain Goverorshlip
These gains, added to the capture
of the governorship in two normally
Republican states, South Dakota and
Colorado, lifted the banner of De-
mocracy to the highest pinnacle it has
reached since the Wilson administra-
tion was returned to office 12 years
A number of senatorial, congres-
sional, and gubernatorial contests still
remained to be decided early tonight,
with Republican candidates having
the edge in the Senate fights in In-
diana, Oregon and California and the
Democrats far ahead in Kentucky.
Republican insurgents in Congress
not only held their own, but they ad-
ded two new members in the Senate
in Smith W. Brookhart of Iowa and
John J. Blaine of Wisconsin. With
the Republican majority reduced to a
bare two or three, this group will
hold a strategic position in the 70th
47 Democratic Senators
Leaving aside the four contests on
which the decisive returns are yet to
be received, the Democrats have
elected 14 senators and the Republi-
cans a like number. This gives the
Democrats a total of 47 in the new
Senate or two less than a majority,
while the Republicans have 43 and
are certain to elect a senator from
Maine on Nov. 29.
Should all four of the seats in di-
pute go to the major party it still
would fall one shy of a bare majority
in the new Senate and so Senator
Shipstead, Farmer-Labor, Minnesota,
would be placed in the position, the-
oretically at least, of controlling the
deciding votes on Senate organization
and on other matters.
DETROIT, Nov. 3.-The tide that
swept an entire, slate of Republican
candidates into state offices in the
general election Tuesday carried with
it a solid Republican congressional de-
legation from Michigan. Partially
complete returns today disclosed that
Republican candidates in every dis-
trict, walked away from their Demo-
cratic opponents with comparative
ease. Majorities of two and three to
one were the rule.
With two exceptions the Republi-
cans elected to congress were incum-
bents. Robert H. Claicy, who was
elected from the first district (Wayne)
as a Democrat in 1922, replaced Con-
gressman John E. Sosnowski. State

senator Frank P. Bohn, of Newberry,
won the seat held by Congressman
Frank D. Scott of Alpena.
NEW YORK, Nov. 3.-Returns from
yesterday's election in the North,
Atlantic states received today from
isolated districts showed no reversals
of early forecasts.
In New York the victory of Gov.
Alfred E. Smith for a fourth term be-

Roumanian Room In New Fine Arts
Building Will Contain Royal !
Gifts When Completed
(By Associated Press)
MARY HILL, Wash., Nov. 3.-Queen
Marie dedicated the Mary Hill Mu-
seum of Fine Arts today in a dramatic.
address in which she explained that
her long journey from Roumania,
which reached its climax in the bare
cement hall of the museum was a mis-1
sion of love and understanding.
Referring to criticism of her visit,
Marie declared she would give no
other explanation of it. Her majesty!
touched also upon an undercurrent of!
adverse comment concerning her
friendship for Samuel Hill, founder
of the museum, and Miss Loie Fuller,
former dancer, and close friend of the
Hill she pictured as a dreamer and
worker whom she understood because,
"I, too, am a dreamer and worker."
The name of Loie Fuller, the Queen
said, "has often been slighted," addingI
that the former dancer gave me her
life in my hour of need," referring to
assistance rendered the Queen during
the World war.
"There is a dream built intoethis
place, a dream for today and espe-
c ially for tomorrow," Marie said in
dedicating the cold, unfinished walls
i of the square squat structure.
Many cases of gifts from Marie
which will occupy a Roumanian room
of the museum when it is completed
within a few years will be taken to
Seattle to await completion of the
building. With them will go other
presents from the French government,;
which was represented in the cere-
mony today by Albert Pirman, coun-
sellor of the state of France.
Queen Marie left Mary Hill for
Portland, Oregon, where she was to
be the guest of the city and attend the
Pacific-Northwest Horse show.

Gives Brief Survey Of Changes Which
Have Taken Place Since Start
Of Twentieth Century
Treating diathermy in particular and
all the ways of healing by means of
heat rays in general, Dr. Frantz
Nagelschmidt of Berlin, Germany,
spoke before a large audience in the
amphitheater of University hospital
last night. The occasion was the first
meeting of the clinical society, a body
of faculty and students. Dr. Lawrence
McCaffery, instructor in obstetricsf
and gynecology in the Medical school,
presided over the gathering and an-
nounced the plans for future meetings.
Dr. Preston M. Hickey, head of the
department of roentgenology, intro-
duced the speaker. Doctor Nagel-
schmidt is traveling throught the
country and giving courses of lec-
tures in many large cities. He is at
present in Detroit.
The visiting professor began by a
brief survey of the changes which
took place in the medical profession
with the beginning of the twentieth
century, placing special emphasis,
upon the introduction and develop-
ment of the patent medicine indus-
try. He stated that this turn of af-
fairs, with its accompanying fraudu-
lent measures, necessitated the bring-
ing in of new scientific measures with
which to combat it, and that physical
therapy was one of these measures
which came in for development. The'
importance of this branch of the sci-
ence was speedily recognized in Ger-
many and other continental countries,
but its advent into the United"States
was slower. One of the most impor-

State Mining Inspector And Officer
Trapped With Entire Shift On
Duty At Time Of Accident
(By Associated Press)
ISPHEMING, Mich., -Nov. 3.-Be-
twen 45 and 65 miners are believed to
have lost their lives when the bottom
of a swamp under which the Barnes-
Kecker iron mines near here have
been extended dropped into the shaft
Deepened by recent heavy rains, the
bottom of the swamp gave way and a
section 300 feet long and 200 feet wide
fell into the mine, trapping the men
at work.
Officials of the mine were checking
tonight to ascertain the exact number{
of men on duty at the time of the
disaster. From 45 to 65 are usually1
employed but it was not known if the
entire shift reported for duty today.
Inspector Trapped
W. E. Hill, a state mining inspector,
and William Tibbett, an official of the
mining company, were among those
trapped. They were inspecting thej
shaft at the time of the disaster. Of-
ficials of the state mine inspection
department at Lansing could not be
reached early tonight to ascertain if
s Hill's visit to the shaft was other than
a routine trip of inspection.
The disaster occurred shortly after

Browen, who captained last year's
championship eleven, gave talks at
several pep meetings while attending
the University. Kipke, Michigan's
nine-letter athlete, who led the Yel-
low and Blue team to a Big Ten title
in 1923, has addressed many tradi-
tional gatherings since his graduation.
Professor Reed has been the faculty

Gridiron Knights banquet.

If the expectations of the Student
council are fulfilled tonight, a capa-
city audience will occupy the audi-
torium. The average attendance at
every pep meeting in past years has
been 4,000. The fact that Michigan
was defeated last Saturday is expected
to attract even a greater number than
usual to the meeting as a mark of
loyalty and moral support to the team
in ist game with Wisconsin Satur-
day, is the belief of the council. The
gathering, which will be the second

sarily scheduled for tonight due to the
fact that the auditorium is engaged
