Buckeye Football Mentor Attributes
Saturday's Defeat 'o Failure
Of Passing Defenses
(Oy Associated Press)
COLUMBUS , Oct. 25.-Da' of thea
"anvil chorus" which began its knock-
ing as soon' as Michigan's football
team had hung up another victory
over Ohio State last Saturday wasl
beard far and wide today.I
A group of irrecocilables to the
present regime of things athletic at
Ohio State became more outspoken as1
a result of these developments:
Claims of Dr. John W. Wilce, head
coach of Ohio State, that the Ohio
State team which played Michigan1
last Saturday was "the best that Ohio
State has put in the field this year,"
and that the team's errors were not
Resignation of A. W. Raymond, city
recreation director, as president of
the Varsity "0" Alumni association,
after the organization had given Dr.
Wilce an ovation on his appearance
at this meeting, was tendered.
Suggestions made at a meeting of
Ohio State -alumni at Cleveland that
"two-thirds of th players who parti-
cipated in lhe Michigan game turn in;
their suits, that Ohio State get a new1
head coach, or that a decided shake-
up of the team be instituted."
Resigns After Ovation
Taking the ovation given Dr. Wilce
as an edorsement of his regime, Ray-1
mend resigned, saying that he felt
"there is something; .radically wrong
with the system'in vogue. I don't feel1
that I can continue to serve as pres-
ident of an organization that is sup-~
posed to be a loyal backer of the
present regime," he said. Raymond,
Varsity tackle in 1910-11-12, was one;
,i me 1h Amrican choice of several;
sports writers.l
Dr. Wilce attributed Saturday's un-
satisfactory showing against Michigan
to several things among which are,
The after-effect of a warring ele-
ment within the team which had been!
eliminated just prior to the game by
a shift in the lineup.
A great overrating of the Ohio State
team early in the seison.'
A difficult schedule drawn to meet
the "community demand" rather than
with the idea of winning games.
Belief that all teams which had met
Ohio State so far have been pointed'
for the Buckeyes.
Wilce Denies Charges
Dr. Wilce denied 'that the coaching
staff has neglected to emphasize'
blocking and tackling. He admitted
there were many tackles missed in
the Michigan game, but said that they
happened at a time when they were
most costly and noticeable.
Failure of Ohio defensive men to
follow the particular Michigan man
he designated for him to watch caus-
ed collapse of the forward pass de-
Similarly, he said, Ackerman, end,
had failed to follow instructions to
watch for the famous Michigan "83"
play which led to a Wolverine touch-
down. This play, known as a favoite
Yest trick, is a fake kick from place-

Following complications which arose
shortly after the announcement of the
student members of the Admiistra-
tiv boai(d of the College of bLiterature,
Science and the Arts, Dean John
1 Effinger announced yesterday the.
members who will serve for the com-1
ing year on the board, These students
are Jo H. Chamberlin, '28, Elizabeth
Nutt, '28, and Roy G. Curtis, '28.
These students will sit as active
members of the board when any cases;
which have to do with student dis-;
honesty in academic pursuits are be-
ing considered. The plan is in ac-
cordance with one which was inaug-
urated several years ago and which.
has proved satisfactory in all of theE
colleges of the University.
T'he student members of the hoard
are chosen because of outstanding ac-
complishments during their three"
years in School.

Among the features which will be
of particular interest at the gridgraph
portrayal of the Michigan-Illinois
game Saturday in Hill auditorium will
be the addition of a light to represent
the lateral pass which has become
such an important element in this
year's game. This new light will hold!
special interest for Michigan suport-
ers, since the use of that particular*
play has been so widely executed by
the Michigan team.
The price of admission will be 50 1
and 35 cents, as usual, and tickets
may be procured at the Union or at
any of the bookkstores.
Charles Livingstone, '28L, who
operated the gridgraph for the 'pre-
vious game will again be in charge.
A wire will be leased from Western
Union that will bring the results of
Sthe game, play by play, direct to Hill
auditorium from thestadium at
Champaign. Scores of other Western
conference games and all games of
importance will be announced as soon
as they are received.

BUCHAREST, Roumania, Oct. 25.-
Roumania is seething with political
excitement. Former Crown Prince
Carol is the central figure in the
struggle which is already being waged
for political control.
Just as the celebration of the sixth
birthday of King Michael is being
celebrated, an alleged plot has been
disclosed to establish the exile Carol
on the throne of his father, the late
King Ferdinand. Martial law has been
declared, and the government and a
opposition party are lined up for what
promises to be a bitter contest for
M. Manoilescu, under secretary of
finance in the late A. Verescu cabinet,
has been arrested and placed in, the
state prison at Gilava. He is charged
with being one of the principals for
the reestablishment of a former crown
prince. He will be courtmartialed, it
is reported, within a few days, and
former Premier General Averescu will
defend him before the military court
against accusations which are certain
to be made of high treason.
Letters From Chrol Found
Among the alleged compromisini
letters found in the possession o1
Manoilescu were several from Carol
who is residing at present in a subur
of Paris. It appears that Carol want
ed a referndum of the people of Rou-
mania as to their wishes regarding
his return. Other letters dealt wit
the question of the dynasty.
* Princess Helen, the abandoned wif
of Carol and King Michael's mother
who had contemplated a trip to Flor
ence, with a stay there of severa
months, has postponed her departur
in order to avoid the appearance o

crisis. Queen Marie and the boy kinl
are atthe royal summer palace Sinaia
Queen Marie frequently has expresse
the desire that her son Carol .remair
away from Roumania and the warning
that the reopening of the dynast
question would only cause turmoil
throughout the country.

It is declared by government offi

newspapers announced that the Peo

Play By Kaufman And Connelly Willj
Be Presented By Comedy Club As
First Offering Of Year


As its first production for the cur-
rent season, Comedy Club, campus
dramatic organization will present
"Dulky," a comedy in three acts and
one scene, beginning Nov. 2, and run-
ning for four performances. The
Mimes theatre will be utilized by the
company in presenting the drama.
' "Dalcy," was written by George S.
Kaufman and Marc Connelly, the
authors of "Beggar On Horseback,"
"Merton of the Movies," and "The
Butter and Egg Man." The story
originated with Franklin P. Adams
in his New York World column "The!
Conning Tower," and was developed
by Kaufman and Connelly. It deals1
with the troubles of a young business
1 man that are caused and augmented
by the frivolity and farcical foolish-
ness of his wife. The drama was
originally produced in New York with
Lynne Fontanne and John Wesley inI
the leading roles.
The cast has been chosen for some
time and rehearsals are being held
daily. Phyllis Loughton, '28, is play-
ing the title role, while the cast in-
cludes also Charles D. Livingstone,
'28L, William Bishop, '28, Vera John-
son, '28, Richard Woelhaf, Grad., and
Harlan Cristy, '29. Sets for the pro-
duction will be in charge of Frederick
Redmond, while Robert Wetzel, '28,
is directing the project.
Several of those in the cast will be
remembered for previous. work in
campus productions, especially in
Comedy Club plays of last year which
included "The Last Warning" and
"Great Catherinje." The later was
produced for two years. Livingstone
has appeared this year in "The Bad
Man" and "On Approval."

i nor, '29, chairman of the society.
University students who scalp foot-
ball tickets will be placed on-. per-
manent blacklist and will be denied
the privilege of obtaining tickets for

adjacent Salt Creek field.
Moreover, Ambrose said lie regard-
ed the drafting of the lease as a reg-
ular business transaction; that Fall
had not given him orders about
secrecy in the negotiation with Sin-
clair's counsel, and that it was Fall
himself, and insisted that there was
to be an equal exchange of crude
royalties for fuel oil instead of an ex-
change based on lower market rates
prevailing at the time.
r iTestimony Recorded.
During the day the government put!
into the records by agreement withl
defense counsel an affidavit of manj
long since dead, J. W. Zedely, one-
time Washington attorney for Sinclair,.
and the affidavit of former attorney-
general Harry M. Daugherty. Zed-
ely's testimony was that Fall made de-
cisipns in the drafting 'of the lease
and sought the "best terms he could
get" for the government, while Daugh-
erfy's chief statement was that he did
not render any opinion, "curbstone or
official," as to the legality of the lease.
Edwin S. Booth, of Tulsa, Okla.,
former solicitor of the Interior De-
partment, testified that he never was
asked for any legal opinion on the
lease and on cross-examination stat-
f ed that his office had passed upon oil
leases until about the time of the Tea-
pot Dome negotiations, when in con-
ference with Edward Finney, first as-
sistant interior secretary, it was
jagreed that leases would not be re-
ferred to the solicitor unless there
was some specific reason for doing
