Just as the attention of an audience
is temporarily interrupted and the
subject being treated at that time by
the speaker is apt to be poorly un-
derstood when someone comes in late
or gets up to change their seat or
receives a message from an attend-
ant, so do inadequate living conditions
or social surroundings interrupt or
disorganize the organized process of
instruction as offered by a trained
faculty in an institution of higher
education, said President Clarence
Cook Little characterizing the hous-I
ing problem at the University in a
speech delivered on the third of the
Michigan Night Radio programs last
"Students cannot be trained in hab-
its of regular, intelligent, desirable
behavior at college unless proper and
adequate living conditions are pro-
vided for them. To spend large sums
of money on higher education, with-
out realizing that this education is of
little value without strong character
and good judgment to apply it, seems
unwise," he said.
Asks For Homes
Explaining that the word "dormitor-
ies" did not correctly describe the
college residences he had reference to,
he said: "Home is much more nearly
what I wish to express. At a time
when the home as a social unit is tot-
tering at the brink of a most uncer-
tain precipice, I do not see how we
can longer afford to neglect our duty
in doing what we can to establish it
at once."
President Little viewed the need for
such buildings especially acute, realiz-
ing "that the stronger and finer side
of an individual undergoes its best
development in the latmosphere of
comfortable home-like surroundings." .
Private resources have already contri-
buted more than $850,000 for a Wom-
en's League building, he said, and
more than $750,000 for five residences,
but there still remains $3,000,000 for
residences to house those not now ad-
equately cared for.
In conclusion, President Little ap-
pealed to the citizens by saying,
"There is no state so near the grasp
of true ideals of publically supported
higher education as is the State of
Michigan. It should,aand Ibelieve it
will, willingly and gladly take up this
problem without further delay."
Registrar Speaks4
Because of the enormous develop-
ment in secondary education the high-
er institutions find at their doors more
students applying for admission than
can be admitted, said Ira M. Smith,
1 registrar, in speaking on "From High
School to College." "But the position
of Michigan is unique," he continued.
"It is national in scope-in fact inter-
national. It attracts those in the west
who desire to attend an eastern
school, and those in the East who wish
to attend a western school."
All of the facilities of the Union,
with a complete description of the
building, were discussed by Paul
Buckley, general manager, in the third
of the four minute talks. More than
4,000 meetings are held each year in
the Union, and "on the days of big
football games nearly 4,000 meals are
served, and between 15,000 and 20,000
use some of the conveniences offered,"
he said as he explained the advantages

it offers to students.
Filipino Needs Education
"Not independence, but education,
presents the immediate problem in the
Philippine Islands," believes Haroldj
P. Scott of the rhetoric department,
"and it is a problem not easy to solve,
first because education is being carri-
ed on a. tongue foreign to the Fili-
pinos, and secondly because profound
economic adjustments must be made
before there can be real education in
the Islands."I
It is true that schools have been
established rapidly, he said, but yet
only one-third of the children between
the ages of 7 and 14 are now in school,s
or just one million out of three.This
means that "in spite of the patent
eagerness and ability of the Filipino
pupils, this lack of school facilities
means that the bulk of the population,
even in the next two or three genera-
tions, must go uneducated."

of approval from two leading univer-
sities and a receptive attitude prevail-
ing at three others today gave added
impetus to advocations for the launch-
ing of an eastern football conference
as an outgrowth of the Princeton-Har-
vard break.
Taking the lead in the movement,
Pennsylvania and Brown lined up in
favor of organization. The position
of the Philadelphia university was
described to the Associated Press in
a canvass of sentiment as approving
the conference idea, "provided that all
members have the same scholastic'
and athletic standards."
While no official statement was forth-
coming from Brown athletic officials,
the Brown Herald saw "no objections
to an eastern conference composed
of such colleges as Pennsylvania,

Operate A Grid-Graph At Book.
Cadillac Hotel
Despite the fact that more than'
3,000 students are making the trip to
Columbus, the ticket sale for the
grid-graph at Hill -auditorium has been
unusually brisk.'
In an effort to assure the highest
possible efficiency, the management
has had the board completely over-
hauled and tested. A special operator,
who will spend all morning in test-
ing the telegraphic connections at the
Ohio State stadium, left on the spec-
ial train last night. The officials of
the Western Union company believe
that rapid co-operation will be in-
sured by the fact that both the send-
ing and receiving operators will be
~from the same station.
The first ten winners in the fresh-
man cross-country race, which will
be held this' morning, and all the men
on the Varsity cross-country team
will attend the grid-graph as guests'
of the management.
Robert C. Leland, '28, a member of!
the Varsity cheerleading squad, will
lead the crowd in' yells and songs. He
will also read all the telegrams which
the board will be unable to show.
Scores from other games will be an-
nounced to the audience between
halves and during the time-out per-
The doors of the auditorium will be
opened at 1:30 o'clock, an hour before
the start of the game. Prices remain
the same as in the past, 50 cents for
main floor seats and 35 cents for bal-
cony seats. Tickets are on sale at
Graham's, Slater's, Wahr's, Huston's,
George Moe's sport shop, the Union,
and both the Calkins-Fletcher drug
stores. Tickets may also be obtained
!at box-office at Hill auditorium.

customary for the past few years, the
University of Michigan club of De-
troit will operate a grid-graph starting

main ballroom of the Book-Cadillac
hotel. There will be a direct wire
from Columbus sending in returns of
'the game which will be shown on the
board as received.
Varsity cheerleaders will be pres-

90,000 TO SEE GAME
Coaches Remain In Doubt Concerning
Starting Lineups; Lovette
To Oppose Hess
By Wilton A. Simpson
COLUMBUS, Nov. 12.-Enthusiasm
has reached great heights among the
thousands of football followers who
are flooding into this city to see Mich-
igan battle the strong Ohio State
eleven in one of the most important
games scheduled for the Middle West
here tomorrow afternoon. The foot-
ball fever has taken a deadly grip on
the town, all Ohio being wild with
aspirations to eliminate the Wolver-
ines from the Conference champion-
ship race.
Alumni from both Michigan and Ohio
have been filing into the battleground
since early morning, and an influx of
students from Ann Arbor this after-
noon have added to the frenzy, and'
from present Indications tomorrow is
not to be outdone in spirit by the
memorial dedication game here in
1922, when Harry Kipke ran rampant
over the new turf in the Buckeye
stadium and aided the Wolverines in
earning a 19 to 0 victory. Hotel space
and tickets for the game are as scarce
as a serene atmosphere at Harvard
and Princeton. The law of supply
and demand is working to its full in-
tegrity and scalpers have put the
pasteboards out of reach by asking ex-
orbitant prices.
Betting Odds Favor Buckeyes
Michigan will enter the game tomor-
row as the underdog, the betting odds
and football critics giving the Buck-
eyes a slight edge. Michigan's 37 to
0 victory over Wisconsin did not
dampen the enthusiasm of the Ohio
State. On the contrary, it seems to
have heightened the spirit. To phrase
it in the vernacular, Ohio is tired of -
losing and has decided that now is the
time for the ghosts of Harley a"
Stinchcomb to rise and subdue the
The Wolverine football party ar-
rived here early this morning and
motored immediately to its head-
quarters, the Columbus Athletic club.
Coach Yost held a skull practice this
morning and sent the men through a
final practice in the huge stadium this
afternoon to polish up the attack
which will be used against the Buck-
Coach Yost would make no definlte
announcement as to his starting line-
up, but indications point to the fact
that there will be no changes in the
backfield. Ohio State has always
proven a power on forward pass de-
fense and it is likely that Yost will
resort to a line plunging game, com-
bined with an aerial attack. Weber
played a stellar game against Wis-
consin and will start again tomorrow
at fullback to strengthen the line
plunging, and to bolster the Michiga r
line against the line smashes of Marty
Karow, the ace of the Buckeye teai.
# Molenda Expected To Start L
Bo Molenda, who has been troubled
with an injured ankle, seems to be
in fine condition today, and will be
ready to start at right halfback. Gil-
bert will play at left half and Captain
Friedman will direct the play from
There are possibilities of a few
changes in the line, the center and
right tackle positions being the un-
certainty. The center position is a
toss up between Schoenfeld and Trus-
kowski, with the former holding a
slight edge. Gabel may give way to
Squier or Grinnell at right tackle.
Oosterbaan and Flora will cover the
ends, and Dewey and Lovette will
start at the guards. Lovette is to play
opposite Hess, an all-American guard
last season. Baer is almost certain
to retain his place at right tackle.
. There has been a great deal of spec-
ulation as to the starting lineup for
the Ohio State team. Eby, Kruskamp,
and Marek are all possibilities for the
left halfback position. Coach Wilce
intimated tonight that Ohio will line-
up against the Wolverines with Krus-

tkamp and Grim at the halves, Clark
at quarterback, and Karow at full-
