Rabbi Wise, Dean Brown, Owen
. Young and Senator Borah Also
Sought by Committee
Charles G. Dawes, Senator Wil-
liam E. Borah, and Rabbi Stephen
Wise were considered Sunday at a
meeting of the convocations com-
mittee of the Student council to
fill the vacancies in the fall pro-
gram of student convocations. In-
vitations will be senta to these men1
to speak here.
William Lyon Phelps, who has'
appeared here before as a convo-
cations speaker, and Henry Pitt
Van Dusen have already been se-"
cured to speak on November 18,
the opening convocation, and De-
cember 16, respectively."
In reply to an unofficial letter
from Dr. Francis S. Onderdonk,
mentor of the Tolstoy league, Pro-
fessor Phelps expressed a willing-
ness to speak on Tolstoy, if it
suited the purposes of the convo-
cations committee. He will be ad-
vised to choose some other. topic,

Henry Pitt Van Dusen of Union

Charles G. Dawes, who has been
invited to speak here on November1
25 or December 2, is vice-presidenta
of the United States, in which con-
nection he is chiefly known for hiss
inaugural address in which he at-
tacked the dilatory tactics of the
Senate. He is the author of the a
Dawes' plan of reparations which1
put Germany on her feet finan-
cially, and brought order out of1
Europe's chaotic finances.
Pepper Declines Invitation
Efforts to secure ex-Senator
George Wharton Pepper of Penn-
sylvania have been unsuccessful,
according to the committee, due to
the latter's accepting a permanent
position with the Episcopal Church,
his duties beginning October 10. In
a letter : to Mark Andrews, '29,
chairman of the convocations com-
mittee, Senator Pepper, who was
defeated by Vare when he cam-
paigned for re-election, said, "it is
time that I should be thinking
more and speaking less."
Senator Wiliam E. Board, fiery
solon from Idaho now stumping the
northwest for Hoover, has been in
the publice eye for many years. He
is known in the senator as a bril-
liant and convincing speaker. His
best-known recent utterances were
virulent attacks on the Republican
oil scandal.
Rabbi Wise is well-known for his
philanthropic endeavors in behalf
of child welfare, international

peace, and labor legislation. He is
one of the recognizedi heads of the
Jewish faith in America.

Frank W. Lee, special representa-
tive in the United States of the
Nationalist movement in China, has
sent a special message which he
will read tonight at a banquet of
the Chinese Students' club at the,
Michigan Union at six o'clock. The
banquet will commemorate the
seventeenth anniversary of the es-
tablishment of China and the suc-
cess of the Nationalist movement
Among the speakers will be Pres-
ident Clarence Cook Little of the
University. In addition, Prof. Chas.
W. Remer of the Economics de-
partment will address the gather-
ing on the subject of "The Chinese
Government From An American
Standpoint." The growth and trend
of the Nationalist movement in
China will be briefly reviewed by
Y. E. Chang, grad. president of the
Chinese students' club.
Entertainment will be furnished
by Miss Mower's orchestra and by
Benjamin Z. N. Ing. Among the
guests who will be present at the
banquet tonight will be Mayor
Staebler of Ann Arbor, presidents
of a number of national organiza-
tions, the deans of various schools,
as well as the heads of various
organizations on the campus.
Guests Will Be Taken to Airdrome
In Automobiles To Hear
Future Plans
Entering into a new epoch in
the history of the city, Ann Arbor
will dedicate its new municipal air-
port this noon with a program be-
fitting the occasion.
Guests will be taken to the air-
drome in planes and automobiles
for a luncheon in the new hangar
and will listen to speeches on plans
for the future and reports on past
achievements that have placed the
community on the airlanes of the
nation. Sponsors of the celebra-
tion expect Gov. Fred W. Green and'
officials of the Ford Motor. Car Co.
to appear at the ceremonies as well
as the city and county officials,
members of the Ann Arbor Flying
club, Chamber of Commerce, Ki-
wanis, Rotary and Exchange clubs.
Mayor Edward W. Staebler will
make the first address, "Ann Ar-
bor's Plans," while L. D. Wines, for
many years a member of the park
board, will speak on "Keeping
Abreast of the Times." The assist-
ant traffic manager of Thompson's
Aeronautical corporation will ad-
dress the assembly on "Ann Arbor's
Airmail" and he will be followed up
by Shirley W. Smith, secretary and
business manager of the Univer-
sity, in a few remarks on the his-
tory of airport activities.
The dedication today marks the
culmination of a movement for a
landing field begun in 1926. Prof.
Felix Pawlowski, of the auronauti-
I cal engineering department of the
University was consulted as to the
suitability of the Steere farm prop-
erty for a landing field. With a
unanimous resolution transferring
the property to the park commis-
sion, sanction was obtained for the
project and the Chamber of Com-
merce was presented with the
plans of the sponsors.
Lieutenant Leonard S. Flo has
been appointed as manager of the
,port by the parkt department and
the city council.

Dramatic Soprano to Make Third
Appearance in Song Recital
Tomorrow Night

So-Called Friends of University
Intimate Local Authorities
Should Investigate
President Clarence Cook Little
yesterday issued a statement .in-
tended to answer certain argu-
ments made by opponents of his
plan to call in Federal officers to
investigate the liquor situation on
the campus. The criticisms
answered were brought to a head
by an editorial in the Washtenaw
Tribune, a local semi-weekly, dated
for October 5. The editorial criti-
cised the president on two counts:
first, because he made such a
"comic opera stunt" of the affair
and because the editor thought
that the students if forewarned
would be forearmed; and second,
because he sought Federal aid in-
stead of the aid of the city, county
and- state officers.

Rosa Ponselle, noted singer, willN
open the semi-centennial anniver-N
sary of the choral union series to-t
mnorrow night, when she appears
in a vocal recital in Hill auditorium.
Miss Ponselle has been acclaimed
by many of the outstanding critics
of the day as being the ablest ope-
ratic dramtic soprano of the pres-
ent time. She has been heard inc
Ann Arbor on two previous occa- I
sions. About ten years ago, she
was heard at the- May Festival oft
that year and two years ago shet
was also one of the stars at thex
May Festival.
The program for tomorrow even-t
ing's concert includes an aria fromX
the opera, "La Gieconda," by Pon-
cielli, an aria from the opera, "l
Trovatore" by Verdi, as well as ac
number of Miss Ponselle's favorite
solos such as Sadero's "Lullaby"
and Chopin's "Lithuanian Song." f
Within two weeks, another well1
known singer, Galli-Curci will be'
heard as the second artist on the1
series. She has often been hailed,
as the predominant exponent of
coloratura singing. More than1
twelve years ago, after her spec-
tacular success with the ChicagoI
opera, she came to Ann Arbor for
her first appearance here. Threel
years ago, it was her privilege to
inaugurate the concert series of
that year.I
Most of the tickets for all the,
concerts have already been sold, 1
according to Charles A. Sink of the'
University Musical society, but Mr.
Sink stated that there are a few!
remaining seats for the individual3
concerts. They can be purchased
at the office of the University"
School of Music on Maynard street.

President Little's statement given
to reporters was as follows:
Certain "friends" of the Univer-
sity in and about Ann Arbor have
consciously or otherwise attempted
o hamper a cooperative effort be-
tween students and the adminis-
tration on i matter involving a
question of internal policy of the
The have attempted to arouse
antagonism towards the plan by
intimating that localiauthorities
should have been asked by the Uni-
versity to conduct the proposed in-
vestigation. For the benefit of
these individuals or organizations
who are interested in making this
suggestion it may be stated
(1) That local officers (city or
county) would naturally be un-
necessarily handicapped 'or em-
barrassed in makting such .ant i-
a) by the personal friendships
or enmities already established and
common to all of us.
b) by having to live with the stu-
dents day in aud day out and
therefore unfairly open to con-
tinued criticism and persecution
by any one 'to whom the investi-
gation might prove irksome,
c) by the danger of confusion in
the minds of all concerned of their
procedure in a special investigation
and their regular line of duties
which are sufficiently onerous to
occupy their time,
d) by the danger of leakage of
information through their many
friends and "well wishers" of steps
in the investigation which should
for its success be kept unkown to
both the students and the admini-
(2) That the information which
they obtained would:
a) not be as available for use by
the federal officers for their guid-
ance in other somewhat similar
b) not be considered by those
outside of the State as being col-
lected by as standard or as imper-
sonal methods as those employed
by Federal agents.
Attitude Is Disappointing
The attitude of certain factions
in An Arbor' has been quite as dis-
appointing to me as has the re-
sponse of the students been en-
couraging. The deep mistrust of
the student body expressed in the
criticisms (the editorial of the
Washtenaw Tribune of October 5
is an excellent exabple) and in the
suggestions that the students now
forewarned will turn from their
foul and evil ways to make a good
temporary impression are exactly
the sort of unkind and loose state-
ments that hurt the name of the
University, show the real nature of
the person making them, and con-
vince me more than ever that the
type of cooperative investigation
suggested is necessary and timely.
Charge Temporary Relief
The editorial charged that "the
liquor will be consumed or
dumped," and that "standing or-
ders with bootleggers, if there be
any will be cancelled or held up
for the time being." It continued
to say that nothing would be found
and that the University would be
r given a clean bill of health. Again,
the editorial remarked "A second
suggestion would be that he wait
until -the next batch of complaints
comes in. and it will, that he then

Michigan's campus humor mag-
azine, the Gargoyle, will make its
initial appearance of the year
Thursday morning, and not today,
as was originally planned, it was
announced yesterday.
Nine issues of the Gargoyle are
to be published this year, accord-
ing to C. U. Fauster, business man-
I ager. The campus price inaugura-
ted by the Gargoyle management
last June and continued this year,
is 15 cents.

Marked by unusual progress in
its program, the Thomas Henry
Simpson Memorial for Medical Re-
search has completed its first year
of existence. An annual report of
this progress have been prepared
by Dr. Cyrus C. Sturgis which is
to be presented to Mrs. Christine
McDonald Simpson, the donor of
the Memorial, and to President
Clarence Cook Little.
On the death of Thomas Henry
Simpson, who died of pernicious
anemia in 1923, plans were made by
his wife, Mrs. Christine McDonald
Simpson, for _ a memorial to him.
In 1926, a building was erected
south of the University hospital

recent years has resulted in the I
discovery of liver as a cure for the;
disease. The Institute was among;
the first to receive the concentra-1
ted liver extract for trial, and did
much in the testing and trial of1
