LANSING, Oct. 5.-A reorganization
which ousts Leigh J. Young as di-
rector of conservation and installs W.
H. Loutit, of Grand Haven, as ex-
ecutive chairman and George Ho-
garth, of Ionia, as acting director was
announced today by the state conser-
vation commission. Loutit is a mem-
her of the commission. Hogarth is its
present secretary. The change be-
comes effective immediately.
The conservation commission, in ex-
ecutive session, accepted Director
Young's resignation. The reorganiza-
tion had been expected for some time.
In fact Young's resignation was plac-
ed in Governor Green's hands Sept. 19,
but was withheld from publication
while the governor sought a succes-
sor. \
Action Not Voluntary
Director Young made it plain, fol-
lowing the act of the commission, that
his resignation was not voluntary.
"My resignation was requested. The
only reason given by the governor
was that I seemed to be unable to
control the commission. I would like
to know the other causes, if any. Of
course politics is a possibility, al-~
though my guess is no better than any
one else's," Mr. Young said.
The governor and members of the
commission took the position that the
director was not properly guiding the
actions of the commission. The pres-
ent commission, appointed last Jan-
uary, has revoked many orders issued
by former commissions, has changed
its mind on some occasions after or-
ders were authorized and has other-
wise wavered in its policies, accord-
ing to those demanding the reorgan-
It was known that Director Young
was not in accord with some of the
actions of the commission. Frequent-
ly he was opposed to proposals advo-
cated by the late James Oliver Cur-
wood. He disapproved from the re-
scinding of orders prohibiting spears
on inland lakes and streams. The
fight to abolish the anti-spear regu-
lation was led by Commissioner Harry
H. Whiteley, who succeeded Commis-
sioner Curwood.
Commissioner Loutit is considered
by his colleagues as an able conser-
vationists, a two-fisted executive, and
a fearless fighter. The members of
the commission believe he will run
the depaartment.
Commission Issues Statement
Following the announcement of the
reorganization the commission issued
the following statement:
"Mr. L. J. Young, the director of the
department of conservation, having
on Sept. 19 tendered his resignation
as director to the governor of the
state of Michigan, and having been
requested by the governor to continue
as such director until the governor
was prepared to accept such resigna-
tion, Mr. Young today brought up the
subject of his resignation and re-
quested the chairman of the commis-
sion to secure the governor's accep-
tance of same effective immediately.
The chairman of the commission in
compliance with Mr. Young's request,
took the matter up with the governor,
and the governor and the chairman at
Mr. Young's request, accepted such
resignation to take effect immediately.
Thereupon, with the consent of the
governor, the chairman procured the
consent of Commissioner Loutit toact
as executive chairman until such time
as the governor should have an op-
portunity to appoint a new director.
"The resignation of Director Young,
having at his request been accepted
by the governor, upon motion of Mr.
Loutit, supported by Mr. Titus, it was
resolved that your commission wishes

to and has hereby expressed its re-
grets upon the severance of its very
pleasant relations with Mr. Young
and wishes to do and does hereby ex-
tend D-rcctor Young its thanks for his
work in behalf of the department, and
extends its very best wishes for his
future happiness and success,"
Mr. Young, who was on leave of
absence from the University of Michi-
gan, will return to his duties there.
Receion of the broadcasting of
the world series game attracted a

President Little, yin. discus:ng the
debate, declared, "The chief oppon-
ents of the rule used a large amount
l of misinformation, and are students
who wish to drive cars, and who may
represent the student body, but prob-
ably do not. The small attendance
at the Adelphi debate, at which less
than 70 students and faculty men
were present, shows a lack of inter-
est in the question. If it were of
pressing local interest, a larger num-
ber might be expected to attend."
President Little pointed out as an
example of the inaccuracies in data
used as arguments against the ban,
the reported statement of Gerald
0. Dkystra, '30L, of Allegan. Dykstra
is reported to have said, "as a matter
of record, the last accident in the

tallized the opinion of the Board of

Class Has Right to Elect.
The motion was adopted only after
investigation with the issue involved
being first the question of Havens
class and then whether or not the
junior class of the business adminis-
tration school, of which the ineligible
president is also a member, is given
an opportunity to elect its own of-
ficers. It was found by the Council
that the junior class had held its own
election last fall, and that according
to the Council schedule of elections

ness Administration has been assig-
ned the date of Thursday, Oct. 13 for
its election this year,
This date was assigned more than a
week ago, it was pointed out by the
Council members, and was announced
in The Daily on Thursday, Sept. 29.
In view of this fact it was decided
by the Council that to allow partici-
pation to these students in the elec-
tions of the senior literary class would
be in effect to give them a double
In the second place it was decided
that since students enrolled in the
combined curricula of other schools
and colleges 'on the campus, including
the first year medical, law, and dental
classes, are not allowed by-precendent
to participate in sehior literary class
elections, it would be unfair to al-
low students occupying the same
status in the School of Business Ad-
ministration to participate. The
Council held that the only proper
class in which Haven can participate
is obviously the junior class of the
School of business administration.
To Hold Another Election.
Following the action removing
Haven the Student council decided
that another election to choose his
successor is the only fair course. It
was decided that this special election
should be held at 4 o'clock on Friday
of this week. It will be held in
Natural Science auditorium.
It was also decided that before the
second election the eligibility of the
other men and women chosen yester-
day afternoon would also be investi-
gated, and though it is possible that
Wayne Schroeder, '28, elected a
treasurer, will also be declared ineli-
gible on the same grounds, no defin-
ite information upon which to base
this action could be secured by the
Student council last night.
Only two other questions confront-
ed the Council at its meeting; the first
involving the nroblem as to whether
or not the resolution adopted at the
last meeting of the body in regard to
the automobile regulations should be
submitted to the Regents or not. After
only a short discussion it was decided
to refer the matter to the- committee
previously appointed. The other ques-
tion, as to whether or not members of
the football squad should be allowed
to cast ballots by proxy in the class
elections, due to their inability to be

present, was left without decision
when a motion to the effect was laid
on the table.
Reports were heard from the com-
mittees appointed to run the class
games and the pep meetings as well,
and arrangements for both are in
