Five of the eight lecturers who
will make up the 1929-30 Oratorical
Association lecture series have al-
ready been chosen, according to
Prof. James M. O'Neill, chairman
of the association, and negotiations
are now being made to arrange for
satisfactory speaking dates.
The committee, which is com-
posed of five faculty members and
three students, met recently and
considered many suggestions made
by patrons of the lecture series re-
garding suitable speakers for next
year' program. Possibilities other
than those decided upon will be
considered before the entire pro-
gram is definitely shaped.
Lecturers already chosen in-

and Lorado Taft. All of these men!

One of the finest orators in
America, Louis K. Anspacher, will

he will discuss many of the sig-

view of pointing out how the mod-'
ern theater is fulfilling the Shake-
spearean maxim of holding up the
mirror to modern life
Phidelah Rice has already estab-
lished himself with Ann Arbor
audiences, having fillet an en-
gagement on this year's schedule1
of Oratorical lectures. He is well
known as a monactor of extraordi-
nary ability and his reading of
plays is highly entertaining. He,

the title of Professorial Lecturer

resident professor of art at the
University of Illinois. His discus-
sion of art is said to be witty and
incisive. Mr. Taft has appeared
here on two other occasions.
The Oratorical committee hopes

Coach Wieman's resignation, the

an's statement that he has no inten.
n of who will be Michigan's head
for the displacement of the head
has held for the past two years,
ulated in newspaper dispatches of
eman was intending to resign be-
R.'ause of personal conflict and en-


mity within the athletic adminis-
ration..Disagreement between Yost
ind Wieman over the coaching
methods used in handling the foot-
ball team and a lack of the qualities
necessary for filling the head coach
oosition were rumored the cause of
the action. It was stated that the
decision was the result of a situa-
ion of long standing, and that it
was not occasioned by the conflict-
ing newspaper dispatches of last
night, which included a report that
Wieman was to resign and a dental
of this report.
Yost Makes Official Staterent
Coach Wieman, on publication of
these reports, issued the following
statement yesterday morning:
"I have not resigned from my
position at the University of
Michigan and have had no desire
or intention of resigning."
After aconference with several
members of the Board in Control
of Athleticshyesterday aftenoon,
Yost made the following announce-
"The appointment of members
of the Athletic Staff at the Uni-
versity of Michigan is made on the
recommendations of the Director
of Intercollegiate Athletics to the
Board in Control of Athletics sub-
ject, of course, to review by the
Board of Regents, if they choose
to exercise that right.
"The assignment of members of
the staff, on the other hand, to
specific positions is entirely in the
hands of the Director. No head
coach of' football at Michigan
has been appointed for next year.
It has been decided, however, that
Mr. Wieman will not be a mem-
ber of the football coaching staff.
"Other duties are being consid-
ered for him where he may ren-
der valuable service to the
University. I trust that some ar-
ragement entirely satisfactory to
Mr. Wieman may be made.
"I might add that I have not
considered, and will not consider,
taking over any of the responsi-
bilities of a head football coach."
Future Procedure Undecided
This statement leaves with the
problem of the coaching of the
1929 football team still in doubt.
Members of the Board in Control
of Athletics, when called last night,
refused to comment on the action
taken or on any prospective candi-
dates for the head coaching posi-
tion. It appears, however, that two
courses are left open. Yost's plan
of using a coaches' board of strategy
in lieu of an executive head coach,
which he has been trying to de-
velop during the past two years,
and which he has favored in state-
ments to the press, may be put into
effect; or a member of the present
coaching staff may be chosen for
the position.
