Pillow Fight First Of Three Contests
Which Will Decide Victors
This Morning
Smeared with the customary green
paint, the freshmen of the University
will assemble at 9 o'clock this morn-
ing on the steps of the Union, while
hundreds of red-faced sophomores are
making their way to the entrance of
Waterman gymnasium, preparatory to
the marches of both classes to South
Ferry field and the annual fall games.
At 9:30 o'clock the green and red
masses will begin the two parades
down- State street, each class to be
led by its respective band. The field
contests are scheduled to start
promptly at 10 o'clock.
Walter Crego, '30, will lead the year-
lings into the fray this morning, while
Jack Kelly, '29, will assume the roll of
sophomore captain.
The initial event of the traditional
program will be the pillow fight, with
two teams of five men each represent-
ing each class. The class having the
majority of winners in two heats of
competition will be awarded one point.
In case of a tie, each class will select
one member to settle the issue on the
wooden horse..
Five Men In Cane Spree
Second on the program will be the
cane spree with two teams of five
men from each class again participat-
ing. The class with the largest num-
ber of winners will receive one point,
as in the first event, a tie being de-
cided in the same manner as in the
pillow fight.
The major contest of the games
will be the flag rush when all mem-
bers of both classes will take part. As
in former years, the freshmen will at-
tempt to ward off mass rushes by the
second year men at the three poles. A
green flag will adorn each pole which
the sophomores will attempt to pull
down. Three points for one class are
possible in this event, each flag re-
moved counting one point for the
sophomores, and each banner undis-
turbed, within the time limit, count-
ing a point for the first year men.
The event will be divided into two ten '
minute halves with a five-minute
interval between the two periods. The
total points in the games will be five,
the same as a year ago.
Classes Dismissed
All freshmen and sophomores are
excused from classes this morning in
order to take part in the annual
classic. No student without tennis
shoes will be permitted to take part.
Slugging, kicking and any unneces-
sary roughness will be closely
watched by the officials and absolutely
Members of the Student council
junior honorary societies, and "M"
men are requested to report at the
Union at 9:30 o'clock to receive their
officials' badges from Earl Blaser, '27,
chairman of the games.
Many Wisconsin students and
alumni who are in Ann Arbor for to-
day's football game will attend the
games this morning, and preparations
have been made to handle a large
crowd of spectators.

"Crime Is Problem Of Judicial Reform,
Not One Of Legislation," Declares Reed,


Cardinal Leader To
Play In Game Today


Editor's note: Tis is the second of a
series of interviews with University authori-
ties on the crime situation in the United
States. Coplyrighlt 1926 by The Michigan
D ailjy.
Commenting on crime and possible
legislation which would aid in de-
creasing it Prof. Thomas H. Reed of
the political science department stated,
"It is not a problem of legislation, but
of the reform of judical proceedure, a
matter which must be handled by the
judiciary itself, and of a higher stan-
dard of ethics in the legal profession."
Professor Reed explained that little
could be done by legislation. There
are a few minor changes in some
states that might be made to remove
some obstacle to the sure and swift
administration of justice, but for the
most part all changes must come
from the' courts and the bar. He
added that punishment is not meant
for vengeance, but is to impress on

oth' s who are tempted, that there is
punishment. "It would do no good,"
he said, "to make the penalties of
crime more severe. It is the certainty
and swiftness of justice which counts."
Comparing English with American
proceedure Professor Reed stated that
English law is not much different
from the American law but that their
lawyers do not look for technicalities
to escape and delay trial as they do
here. The reasons for that are that
the barrister would lose the respect
of his colleagues should he attempt
the methods of American criminal
lawyers who make such efforts to have
their clients escape the law.
One of the changes needed accord-
ing to Professor Reed is a better jury
system. At present there are too
many corrupt practices in the pick-
ing and functioning of a jury. It was
his suggestion that the courts them-
selves change the system.

Prof. Ramsay Muir Declares Decline
Of Representative Government
Prevalent In Europe
Misgiving in the working of, and the
decline of confidence in, representa-
tive government were emphasized by
Prof. Ramsay Muir, Liberal memberj
of Parliament who lectured on "Thet
Decay of Parliamentary Government"
yesterday afternoon in Natural Sci-a
ence auditorium. Pointing out the
break-down of representative govern-
ment in China and India Professor
Muir declared that in Europe there
has been the same general tendency.-
He mentioned Russia, Italy, and
France as examples. Of Italy he said,1
"In Italy there has been a reversion4
to a government similar to that of
Napoleon the third, a despotism byt
force." He expressed the opinion that
it was brought to Italy only for the
In England the misgivings in Par-
liamentary government have been
shown by the threats of organized la-
bor, by the unemployment, and by the
recent general strike. The causes of
this unhappy condition, he asserted,
was due to the immense problems
caused by the war. "The events are3
so tremendously great," Professor
Muir said, "that they dwarf the men
who handle them." The most per-
turbing fact is that representativef
government is now practically univer-
sal and there is now almost universal
dissatisfaction with it, yet there is no
substitute for it.
The idea that the state should have
everything to do with economic af-
fairs, and the opposing idea that the
state should have nothing to do with
economic affairs, he branded as "in-
sane." Pointing out that the per-
centage of the electorate who vote is
not what it should be Professor Muir
said that the true work of political
education was the work of the poli-
tical parties. He credited the Labor
party for its unresting preaching as
being the pioneers in showing the way
of reaching the electdrate.
Another cause of dissatisfaction
with Parliamentary government is
that the voter has an idea that his
vote counts very little. The present
discussion proposing proportional rep-
resentation, he said, is an evidence
of the lack of confidence in Parlia-
ment. Still another cause is that the
House of Commons has more than it
I can do efficiently and yet wastes its
time by discussions concerning selfish
class interests. The real government
is carried on by the bureaucracy, he
said. The defects of bureaucracy, he
went on, are first, its lack of propor-
tion in expenditure, and secondly, its
red tape.
The key problem, Professor Muir
{ concluded, is to restore confidence in
the instrument of representative gov-
ernment by securing good bureaucrats
and good legislators.

French See Fascist
Move In Conspiracy
(By Associated Press)
PARIS, Nov. 5.-Official quarters
in France and newspapers are greatly
concerned over the Catalan conspir-
acy. Evidence gathered by the French
police shows that while it was organ-
ized ostensibly to secure antonomy for
Catalonia, it presents itself to the
French as a move by Premier Mus-
solini to strengthen his hand in Medi-
I terranean affairs by creating divisions
between the Spanish and French.
I Thus, it is commented by the news-
papers, the French police foiled both
the Catalan plot and the Italian
scheme at the same time.
In official quarters, it is held that
the Italians who threw in their lot
with the Catalans, really were acting
in complete understanding with the
Italian police and were working for
their own ends rather than for "the
liberation of Catalonia."
The real mission of these Italians,
the police say, was to stimulate an
attack on the Italian premier so as to
furnish grounds for complaint that
France was allowing plots against
Mussolin's life to be organized on
French soil. Their aim, as outlined
by the police, was to spur Col. Fran-
cisco Macia, the Catalonian auton-
omist leader, to action, and then, as
mshe was about to strike, to betray
I Macia and his followers to the Span-
ish police.

gan team has experienced. The-

mages this week than ever before and
Is pronounced fit for any attack the.
Cardinal eleven has to offer.
Unsettled Weather Predicted
Although the weatherman has pre-
dicted unsettled weather and' probable
showers, the spectators are certain
to view a game featured with forward
passes. Michigan's forward pass at-
ack, which was so completely blocked
by the Navy, has been revamped and
will be given a real test today against
the Badgers. George Little, former
Michigan football coach and now dl-
rector of athletics and head football
coach at the University of Wisconsin,
is one of the chief exponents of the
forward pass, and will bring a team
on to the 'field well versed in the art
of passing,' and particularly well
schooled in pass defense.
However, there is cauw to4 belie
that Yost is going to vary his usua
attack and build up a line plunging
backfield. Weber, a substitute full-
back, has been working at half back
during the practices this week and is
likely to take the place of Greenwald
at right half back. Molenda will re-
sume his place at full back and will
share the burden of plunging with
Weber. Gilbert, who has been Mich-
igan's chief ground gainer in the past
few games, will play at left half-
back and do the punting for the Wol-
verines. Friedman will direct the
play for the Yost team from quarter-
Wisconsin Backfield Is Powerful
George Little has a powerful back-
field in Crofoot, Harmon, Barnum, and
Kreuz, and may cause some worry to
the Michigan line. Last Saturday the
Badgers were unable to gain through
the Minnesota line, but reports from
Madison indicate that Little has
strengthened his plunging attack.
Wisconsin received many bruises in
the grueling battle with the Gophers,
and is said to be weakened by in-
juries. Strauble, veteran guard, is out
of the lineup with an injured chest,
and will be replaced by Schuette, a
new man who has shown promise of
being a regular. Burruss, who has
had three years experience, may get
into the game, but will not start on
account of injuries. Welch will re-
place him at right end.
Michigan Lineup Not Announced
Coach Yost refused to announce his
starting lineup late last night, but in-
timated that there would be a few
changes in the personnel of the team,
the principal changes being made in
the line. One of the suspected chang-
es is Grinnell in place of Gabel, but
this is not likely as Grinnell was- in-
jured in Thursday's practice and will
not be ready, for service for another
week. Baer, who was off form in the
Navy game, will probably retain his
place at right left tackle. Baer played
a great game against Illinois and is
expected by the coaches to duplicate
his performance today.
It is rumored that there will be a
change made at center and also one at
left guard. Should Yost make a last
minute change, Schoenfeld will start
at center and Dewey will take Pal-
meroli's place at left guard.
