Injury To Spelman, Cornell Captain
And Star, Gives Maize And Blue
Slight Advantage
By Clarence Edelson
Cornell's "Big Red" track team, the
winner of the major intercollegiate
championship games of the East, and
Coach Steve Farrell's "green" Michi-
gan squad, beaten in its only meet of
the sea-son, will compete tonight at
Ithaca in the seventeenth dual en-
counter since 1902 between athletes
representing the rival institutions.
The Wolverines have won an even
dozen times.
Injuries to Captain Spelman, holder
of the dual meet record in the 75
yard low hurdles and an almost cer-
tain winner of the 440 yard dash,
have considerably weakened the po-
tentialities of Coach Jack Moakley 's
squad which until the accident was
generally conceded more than an even
chance to repel the Wolverines' in-

Broadcasting Of Bed-Time Stories in
)Iid-Afternoon Is Unlooked For
Addition To Exhibit
An attendance which wa's estimated
conservatively as between 7,000 and
9,000 persons thronged the College ofI
Engineering during the first day of
the Open House which opened yester-
day and will end tonight. It was im-
possible to make an exact count of
the crowds present during the day, due
to the fact that there was no set ron-
tine which the people were required
to follow to observe all of the exhi-
bits. It is expected that the attend-
ance today will 'show a substantial in-
crease over that of yesterday.
Much interest was exhibited in all
the exhibits,'- particularly those dis-
playing models and the operation of
mechanisms. The wind tunnel in the!
ba'sement of the East Engineering
building was run continually from 1
o'clock in the afternoon as was the
naval' tank, the dynamo laboratory,
the Baltimore -and Ohio exhibit of
model locomotives, the cut away Buick
chassis, and other displays. Much in-
terest was evinceed in the film fur-
nished by the Baltimore and Ohio rail-
road, "The Fair of the Iron Horse,"
and the models set up by the depart-
ment of highway engineering, includ-,
ing a model countryside and miniature
road machinery, drew large crowds.
Irrigation Model Of Interestr
An excellent model that was not'
previously announced, that of a minia-
ture irrigation .project, created con-
siderable interest with its tiny water-
falls and power units.
Perhaps an unlooked for feature of i
the Open House was the broadcasting
of bed time stories in mid-afternoon
from a loudspeaker on the roof of the

The Senate resolution was present-

ator Couzens, who declared that Mich-
igan had lost one of its foremost and
useful citizens, an outstanding figure
in radical education.
I LANSING, March 23-Joseph W.
Fordney, of Saginaw, was looked upon
in state circles today as the one most
likely to be ctosen by GovernorGreen
to he-ad the way out of the political
confusion caused by the death of Sen-
ator Woodbridge N. Ferris.
i ~Is Generally Accepted-
Although the governor, who is con-
fronted with the most pu'zzling !olit-
ical situation of his tenure, will not
appoint a successor to Senator Ferris
for several days, the belief that Ford-
ney will be the next United States
senator was the most generally ac-
cepted of the possibilities discussed.
I Virtually without exception state of-
ficials gave Fordney the leading
Senator Ferris' death, coming as it
did upon the verge of a senatorial
campaign in which two or more of
the governor's close political and per-
sonal friends may engage, brought
Governor Fred Green face to face with
the eventuality which his friends have
viewed with alarm since the begin-
ning of 'the senator's illness. Should
the governor appoint either of his
friends who miay became cantldates
I in the fall -primaries, he would im-
mediately confer upon the appointee
a tremendous advantage in the cam-
( paigns for nomination and election, it
was pointed ouit.

in the spring and fall, when the men
