Wuerth, Graf, Harris, Allmendinger,
Bradley, Kurth, Townley, And
Fisher Are Aldermen


With the antiquated German band
en route to Ann Arbor, vigcrous polit-
ical campaigns nearing the climax,
and the cvted "Oil Can" all polished
up for the occasion, everything points
to one of the most uproarious na-
tional convcntions in the history of
the country, when the annual Gridiron
banquet, sponsored by Sigma Delta
Chi, professional journalistic fratern-
ity, gets under way in the Unicn to-
morrow night.
Between 300 and X50 politicians are
erected to murmur "Skelkel, Skekel"
and dodge through the paltry portals
at banquet-time 'tomorrow night, ac-
rording to Herbert E. Vedder, '28,
general chairman of the affair. Once

finding the most respectful delegation
to join for the feasting, according to
the latest report from the decoration
committee, who held an industrious
session behind closed docrs yesterday
afternoon and far on into the night.
The assemblage tomorrow night
will consist, general speaking, of
three parties, faculty, students and
townspeople; but far be it from the
intentions of the seating committee to
have them grouped that way when
festivities begin. Each table will be
designated by a card and script, ac-
cording to the decoration committee,
and the first problem will be to select
the least despicable delegation. It is
expected that there will be about 45,
tables to choose from.
The Union convention hall will be
decked out in -flags, red, white, and
blue bunting, and the table cards will
be in harmony with the general color
scheme of red, white, and blue. The
German band will be located at one
end of the hall and Bob Carson's
Buccanneers at the other for the pur-
pose of fanning the air between "hot-
blast" spasms.
The rumor circulating late last
night to the effect that Will Rogers,
humorist, was to he the recipient
of the Oil Can, was officially denied
by members of Sigma Delta 'Chi.
"There are men right here on the
campus far better qualified to receive
it" several members were quoted asi
saying. But, as Kipling might aver,
that is another story, and one which
will be settled tomorrow night.
After that, heaven help the "Loqua-
cious Lubricator."
All those still holding invita-
tions to the Gridiron banquet
must present them at the side
desk in the Union lobby today
or tomorrow afternoon from 3
to 5:30 o'clock if they wish to{
obtain tickets. No more tickets j

In accordance with previous
announcements, today is the
final opportunity for members
of the senior literary class to
order class announcements, in-
vitations, programs, or canes.
Members of the senior literary
class committees will be sta-
tioned in Angell hall today for
the purpose of receiving orders,
and class officials urge that it
is imperative for all of those
wishing to order any itenis to do
so today. After today, dine to

Senior literary students may

"Striving is decidedly wonthwhile,
but this striving is too often troubled
by feelings of inferiority," said Dr.
Alfred Adler of the Pedagogical In-

Adler was speaking here under the
auspices of the School of Education.
"The problem then, is how may we
develop opposite feeings in the child,"
he continued.
"We must strive fo4 superiority.

Then, there is the superiority com-
