Vote Of North Dakota Senator Needed
By Republicans In Organization
Of -Upper House
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 11.-With the I
political control of the new Senate
hanging in the balance, Senator Borah
of Idaho today called on the Republi-
can leaders to reinstate in the party
council Sen. Lynn J. Frazer, North
Dakota, who was banished after the
Coolidge landslide in 1924. The action
of the Idaho senator apparently took
by surprise the Old Guard leaders,
who have been disinclinedto discuss
even the possibility of Senate organ-;
ization in a year in advance of the
necessity for meeting what now ap-
pears a perplexing problem.
Borah Brings About Action
Senator Borah's move, taken after
full conferences with Frazer and others
of the Republican insurgent group, is
expected to bring about early action
in the case of the North Dakota sen-
ator, who wants now the committee'
places to which his three years of
sedvice entitle him.
While many things may happen
within a year to alter the Senate sit-
uation, as the political divisions now*
stand, Frazer appears to hold the key
to the organization problem since his I
vote could be used to cause a lond
deadlock like that of four years ago
when the Republican insurgents
finally forced the selection of a Dem-
ocrat as chairman of the important
interstate commerce committee. That
the Republicans will make every ef-
fort to organize the new Senate is in-
dicated by the appeal made yesterday
by Senator Capper of Kansas, their
Senate leader, to the Republicans of
Maine to elect one of their party at
the special election on Nov. 29 to fill
the vacancy caused by the death of
Sen. Bert M. Fernald.
Will Have 47 Seats
Even if the Republicans are success-
ful in that contest, they will have only
47 seats in the new Senate to an equal
number for the Democrats, Shipstead,
Farmer-Labor, Minnesota, and Frazer
holding the other two places. With
Frazer reinstated, the Republicans
would need only one more vote to
have a clear majority for organization,
provided all of the insurgents re-
mained within the fold until the con-
test for Senate offices have been
Members of the women's debate
teams which will meet Ohio State and
Indiana in a triangular debate Dec.
2 were chosen yesterday afternoon in
open tryouts before members of the
faculty of the public speaking depart-
ment who acted as judges.
The affirmative team which will de-
bate Indiana here will be composed
of Henrietta H. Howser, '27 Ed, Mir-
iam M. Olden, '29L, and Elizabeth L.
Rabinoff, '27 ED.
Those making up the negative team
are Laura M. Osgood, '2SEd, Mar-
garet P. Hodgson, '27Ed, and Norma
A. Green, '28. This team will oppose
Ohio State's team at Columbus.
The subject chosen for debate is
"Resolved: that a Department of Ed-
ucation should be added to the Presi-
dent's Cabinet."
J. A. Bursiey, dean of students
stated yesterday that he regards the
proposed Union aendment as a fair
>i~o)osition which desrves the sup-
r:)rt of the Union members.
Dean Bursey, who is one of the
seven members of the Board of Di-
rectors, said "I believe that the
amen mnt as propos(l is as liberal
a. proosit ion as the Union could pos-
tsibly offer its members. It is entire-
ly fair, it works no prejudice toward
any single member; it is the unani-
inous opinion of the Board of Direc-
tors that it be offered to the Union
members for a vote. In my opinion,

it should meet with no opposition and
it is deserving of the support of the
Union members."

"Crim news played up in a sensa-
tional way makes for more crime','
is the opinion of Howard P. Jones,
instructor in journalism and former
newspaperman. "It is a matter of
common knowledge among newspaper-
men," he said, "that when crime news
is played up sensationally in any com-
munity there is a definite tendency
toward an increase in lawlessness."
Michigan Ha More Manuscripts Of
The Third Century Than Any Place
In U. S., Speaker Says
"Michigan has more of the Greek
papyri of the third century than any
other place in the United States and
as much as any other place in the
world," said Prof. Kirsopp Lake of
Harvard yesterday in his lecture on
"Manuscripts of the New Testament,"
the secoi d of a series of three lectures
by Profe..3or Lake which are being
given under the auspices of the School
of Religion.
He continued by showing a slide
of some of the papyri, and asserted
'that it was the purest manuscript of
the western type yet found, and that
when it was published it would create,
the greatest furor among critics that
has occurred for several centuries.
Professor Lake, in his lecture yes-
terday, showed. on slides the material
that has been used for translations of
the Bible, preparatory to his discus-
sion of such material today, together
with an attempt to offer some of the
problems which this material presents
to the translators.
Anticipating this discussion, the
speaker stated that all over the Chris-
tian world of the third century were
found these western texts which dif-
fer from what are known as the neu-
tral texts and the medieval, and the
problem of the scholars is to discover
if possible which was the original,
and where the western text came
from. A discussion along such lines
will be the context of his lecture on
"Manuscripts of the New Testament"
at 4:15 o'clock today in Natural Sci-
ence auditorium.
Coal Miners Hasten
Prompt Settlement
(By Associated Press)
LONDON,Nov. 11.-The coal miners
delegate conference today gave the
executive committee a free hand to
negotiate a settlement of the seven
months strike without imposing stip-
ulations with regard to hours or
Power to resume negotiations was
accorded by a care vote, which indi-
cated that the miners had given way
on the important point of hours of
work. It is understood, however, that
there is an implied stipulation, that
if the miners yield this far the gov-
ernment on its side, must insist that
the mine owners shall consent to the
creation by legislative action of a na-
tional tribunal to which a district set-
tlement may be referered.
The promise of a settlement was
considered so favorable that Premier
Baldwin and Sir Arthur Steele Mait-
land, minister of labor, both cancelled
speech engagements to remain in
London. Late in the afternoon, the
miners' executives had a conference
of an hour with the prime minister
and Winston Churchill, chancellor of
h exchequer' in Mr. Baldwin's room
the iofnis of Commons.

He mentioned the fact that newspa-
permen have observed, for instance,
that when a suicide story is publish-
ed, others are reasonably sure to fol-
Concerning the publication of crime
news, Prof. John L. rumm, head of
the journalism department, said, "It
is one of the functions of a newspaper
to print whatever news is of interest
to, or concerns, a considerable num-
ber of people. Anti-social activities-
happenings which impinge upon pub-
lie authority-are essentially news,
and whether such items be news of
crime or ordinary behavior, they are
deserving of publication. But at the
same time, he declared emphatically,
"it is against the dramatic chronicling
of this type of news-the playing up
of criminals as heroes, and the treat-
ment of these anti-social activities as
romance, out of relation to all the
facts-that criticism should be di-
Donal Hamilton Haines, former

Hundreds Cheer As
Grid Team Entrains
A crowd of students and towns-
people that numbered several hun-
dred persons gathered last night at
the Michigan Central station to give
the team an enthusiastic send-off for
the game with Ohio State Saturday.
Cheers led by a Varsity cheerleader
for Captain Friedman, Coach Yost,
and other members of the squad were
given by the crowd before the train
arrived, and an insistent shout of
"Beat Ohio" was the keynote of the
cheering when the special car for the
squad was attached. The train left
at about 9:10.

Western1 Union Will Send A Special

Speculation as to whether or not,

set at rest yesterday by John M.

as members.
Subject Widely ilscussed
The possibility of such an associa-
tion, already known to be under dis-
cussion was an outstanding develop-
ment today as eastern eyes focused on
the results of the swift Tiger stroke
that put an end overnight to the old-
est of all football rivalry.
Many prospects that the sudden
breach between Princeton and Har
vard might be closed, as suggested to-
day by such prominent Crimson sup-
porters as Howard Elliott, president
of the Harvard board of overseers, ap-
parently was eliminated' by a state-
ment from athletic authorities at
Cambridge, accepting Princeeton's
decision "with regret." At the same
time, this statement emphasized a
Spolicy henceforth that will commit the
Crimson to only one fixed football
game a year, that to be the climax bat-
tle with Yale. Princeton's attitude
now apparently is that the case with
Harvard is "closed" and the Tiger
will pursue its own course without
further dealings with Crimson.
