Non-Sectarian Meetings Give Students
Chance to Hear Noted Preachers
And Laymen Speak
Dr. Charles W. Gilkey, of the Hyde
Park Baptist church, Chicago, will
address the opening service of the
student's convocations to be held at
11 o'clock this morning in Hill audi-
torium. This is the first service of
the fall series of student's Sunday
morning convocations which are ar-
ranged by a special committee ap-
pointed by President Clarence Cook
Dr. Gilkey is one of the foremost
preachers of the country and is al-
ready known on the campus through
his appearance here two years ago
at a convocations service. At that
time his address aroused much com-
ment, and the committe~e on convo-
cations voted that Dr. Gilkey was the
most interesting speaker who had ad-
dressed the convocations audiences.
One of the leading sympathizers
with the youth movement today, Dr.
Gilkey has served for many years as
University preacher at some of the
foremost educational institutions in
the United States. Among the uni-
versities at which he has served in
this capacity are: Harvard, Yale,
Princeton, Chicago, Stanford and Pur-
due. Last winter he was one of the
featured speakers at the national
student's conference held in Milwau-
Topic Is "Refining Religion"
The topic-on which Dr. Gilkey willi
speak is "Refining Religion." It is
? expected by those who are familiar
with his work that the topic will have
much to do with the questions which
are raised by modern youth in re-
gard to religious beliefs and creeds
and that he will bring from the ques-
tion some answer to the many doubts
which assail the youthful mind.
Due to the fact that the present
organ in Hill auditorium is being re-
moved to make way for the new in-
strument which will soon be complet-
ed, there will be no prelu'de or post-
lude. Instead the men's glee club will
be present and will offer numbers
suitable to the service.
The opening of the new series of
convocations marks the following of
tihe idea that the students wished
some place where the service was
non-sectarian and where they might
listen to the views of world famous
speakers, both theological and lay.,
'ie success of the plan has been:
marked by the, ever-increasing crowds
that have attended and by the com-
nient which the remarks of many of
the speakers have aroused on the
Program Announced
There are four speakers announced
for the fall series of onvocations and
Vans are being made to have a
spring series also, as in former years. '
The next sneaker on the fall series,
will be Rev. Charles R. Erdman of
the Presbyterian church of Princeton,

Former Burns' Investigator Testifies
In Behalf, Of Prosecution In
Sinclair Case


(By Associated Press)


WASHINGTON, Nov. 12-Testimony
that the Burns Detective agency fab-
ricated reports for use if the defense
in the Fall-Sinclair conspiracy case
decided that a mistrial was necessary
was presented today to the jury in-
vestigating the surveillance. of the
trial jurors.
It was furnished by one of Burns'
own operators, who, since Oct. 24
had been assisting the government in
weaving a net about William J.
Burns, his son, W. Sherman Burns,
and more than a dozen detectives
sent here at the behest of Henry Ma-
son Day, one of Harry F. Sinclair's-
confidential associates.
. This operative is William J. Mc-
Mullin, of Philadelphia, a world war
veteran, and known to Burns and his
men as William V. Long, with the
code designation of L-36. He swore
that those directing the jury shadow-
ing operations required him to swear
to a false affidavit on which William
J. Burns based his charge of jury
tampering by government agents and
which was presented to the oil trial
judge, Justice Frederick L. Siddons,)
by counsel for Burns.
McMullin declared that at the, time
the affidavit was presented, the eld-
er Burns, founder of the detective
agency, knew that it was false. This
affidavit had to do with the alleged
activities of Harris R. Lamb, a special,
assistant to the attorney general,
whom, McMullin declared was never
shadowed for even a moment.

lin's whole story weredmade public by

Red Painted Horde Uses Strategy To
Wrest Flag From Verdant
Freshman Troop
Biting, clawing, and battering their
way to victory over the tender year-
lings, the sophomore class'of the Uni-
versity tookthe measure of the green
smeared freshmen in the annual fall
games held yesterday morning at South
Ferry field. The final score was 3-2
in favor of the class of '30, though
the not too decisive victory was gain-
ed only after one of the bitterest un-
derclass battles in years.
The verdant class of '31, more than
500 strong, was first on the field short-
ly after 9:30. The. sophomores, after
keeping their opponents waiting in the
cold blasts of the field of combat for
about half an hour, strode on to the
scene at 10 o'clock. Both classes were
resplendent in their war paint-the
sophomores red and the freshmen
green, and both exhibited alleged
bands for the edification of the assem-
bled multitude, which numbered near-
ly 1,000 persons.
Sophomores Score First
The sophomores started with a rush,
and though outnumbered by more
than 100 men they swept through the
first two events in decisive fashion.
The first contest on the program, the
pillow fight, gave the second year men
their first point when four of the
freshmen were dethroned from the
saw-horses, while only three sopho-
mores descended before the onslaughts
of their freshmen antagonists. Two
of the fights ended in ties, both men
refusing. to give way -in the eight min-
ute period.
With one point tucked safely under
their belts or suspenders or whatever
they wore, the red faced sophomores
entered the second contest, the cane
spree, with even more zeal. Nine
husky freshmen werecompletely in-
adequate to stem the rising tide of the
sophomores, and full flushed w.ithi
victory, the red men swept through the
cane spree like a hurricane. Out of
the nine individual cane spree con-
tests, the sophomores took five, while
the green youths managed to
wrest only two of the canes away
from their antagonists. Two of the
contests ended in ties, one of them be-
ing between the captains of the two
classes, Walter Crego, '30, and Law-
rence Rogers, '31.f
Another Point Added
This added another point to the
mounting total of the sophomores, and
gave them two out of the total of five
points. The last 'event on the pro-
gram was the flag rush, with the
freshmen defending three poles and
each flag counting one point. It was
only by artful guile that the sopho-
mores were able to gain the single
flag that spelled victory for them.
The trick that won the games for
the sophomores was a brilliant piece
of strategy. The freshmen gathered'
around the three poles to defend the
flags, whi'le the sophomores withdrewI
to connive. Of a sudden a wave of1
red sophomores, with terrific whoops
and cheers, swept down from the west,

Illinois Makes Best Possible Showing<
With The Low Score Of 15 And
Fast Time Of 26:571
(Special to The Daily)
CHAMPAIGN, Nov. 12.-Illinois won
the annual triangular cross-country
with Michigan and Ohio today scoring
15 points to, 54 for Michigan and 63
for Ohio.
It was the smallest score ever run
up by any winner of this meet, as six
Illinois men came across.. the finish
line at the end of the 4 1-2 mile grind
tied for first place in the fast time
of 26 minutes, 57 seconds. Only one
man threatened to break up the com-
bination of Illinois runners, Monroe
of Michigan who came in seventh,
some 50 yeards behind the leaders.
The fast pace set by the winners
team killed off many of the runners
early in the race. The first mile was
run in 4:47, the time at the two-mile
mark was 10:15 and at the three-mile
mark, 15:15.
The Michigan men and their plac-
es follow:1
Monroe, 7th; Wuerfel, 9th; Wells,
12th; (counted in 11th place because
of 7th Illinois runner finishing ahead
of him); Jessen, 14th; (got points for,
13th place for same reason); Carlson,
16th, but got place points for 14thl
since eighth Illinois runner finished'
in 15th place. Ponzer, Novak, Moon-

Flashing a most powerful and effective running attack built to a
great extent around Jim Miller, field general, the Wolverines loosed
their big guns and sank the none too submissive Naval Academy gun-
boat yesterday in the new Michigan stadium by a 27-12 score to
avenge the loss suffered at the hands of the Midshipmen a year ago.
A capacity crowd of 87,000 witnessed the encounter in the numbing
cold of an otherwise perfect football day.
The entire game was featured by spectatcular offensive play on
the part of both Michigan and Navy but neither could boast, of much
in the way of defense, the forward walls being walls in name only as

heart, and the battle was waged on
fairly even terms for the remainder
of the game, no scoring taking place
in the second period. Mainly through
the efforts of Lloyd and Clifton, the
Middles marched to the 14 yard line
but an incomplete pass over the goal
line ended the attack. After a see
saw, the Wolverines again opened up
and had the ball on their opponents'
12 yard line as the half ended.
Lloyd Punted Poorly
Soon after the second half opened,
Lloyd punted poorly and Michigan
was on her way again, going steadily
for 42 yards and touchdown.

ternated at carrying the ball until

Following this, Navy opened up an
attack which. was not stopped until
the Middies had marched 69 yards to
a touchdown with Lloyd and Clifton,
supported by the clever little Rans-
ford, contributing heavily. Ransford
made the score on a thrust from the
4 yard line.
The fourth period passed without a
score but found Navy and Michigan
both tearing off tackle. Navy, led by
diminutive but effective Shag Rans-
ford, made things miserable for the
Wolverines several times but could
not score. One drive ended on a
grounded pass across the Maize and
Blue goal line.
