Thelma Lewis And Hanns Pick
Furnish Musical Portion Of
Regular Radio Program
"One of the most striking like-
nesses of both major parties in this
year's presidential campaign ap-
pears in their friendly and con-
structive attitude in the matter of
the relationship between govern-
ment and business," stated Prof. I.
L. Sharfman, of the economics de-
partment, in his talk on the sec-
ond Michigan Night radio program
of the current year broadcast be-
tween 7 and 8 o'clock last night
through the courtesy of station
WJR-WCX, the Richards Oakland
Co.'s "Good Will Station" of De-
Professor Sharfman stressed the
unusual feature of the campaign
in the objective of both parties to
encourage commercial, industrial,
and agricultural enterprise rather
than to thwart it, as has been the
case in previous years. "If the
maintenance of achievement of
general prosperity is the goal of
the American people, there ap-
pears to be promise of no govern-
mental obstacles through the suc-
cess of either of the political con-.
testants," he said.
Furstenberg Gives Health Talk
Continuing a series of medical
talks given on Michigan Night pro-
grams during the past three years,
of University broadcasting, Dr. Al-
bert C. Furstenberg, professor of
tolaryngology in the medical
school and specialist in ear, nose,'
and throat diseases in the Uni-
versity hospital, spoke on "The
Common Head Cold."
"The cause, prevention, and cure
of the common head cold is one of'
the difficult problems of medical
practice," he said. "Scientific med-
icine has never discovered the true
cause of a "cold in the head' nor
has the doctor ever acquired a spe-
cific means of preventing or cur-'
ing this exceedingly common dis-
ease. With such wide spread pre-
valence and tremendous economic
loss, colds and their prevention,
should be better understood."
Dr. Frustenberg gave a lengthy
discussion of the causes of the head
colds and pointed out several pre-
ventive measures which should be
regarded by everyone, namely: the
avoidance of prolonged coldf
plunges and? undue exposure to in-
clement weather, the value of fresh
outdoor air, the avoidance of over-
heated rooms or atmosphere im-
pregnated with noxious gases, and
finally the proper disposal of nose
and throat discretions.
"Don't Watch the Ball"
Elton E. "Tad" Wieman, head
coach and assistant director of;
athletics, choose, as the title of his
talk, "What Ito Watch in a Foot-
ball Giame. Coach Wieman ad,
vised his audiences not to merely
watch the ball on every play but
to recognize and notice the play of
the team as a whole-to see how
the team works together to accom-
plish its purpose.;
"Education and Politics" was the

subject of the talk given by Junius
E. Beal, Regent of the University-
since 1908 and a member of the
executive committee of that board.-
Miss Thelma Lewis and Hanns
Pick, of the School of Music, pro-
vided the musical numbers on the
program. Miss Lewis sang four
solos while Mr. Pick was also heard
in four numbers, playing the 'cello.

Debate Challenge
Hurled At Mol By
Democratic Leader
Norville, "Alky Al's" Local Champ,
Defies Hoover Ringleader
The "Smith for President" club
is up on its ear. At a late hour
last night Leo. T. Norville, chair-
man of the organization, rushed
into the Daily office and declared
with much enthusiasm, and in no
uncertain terms, that he wished to
issue a challenge to Martin Mol, of
the University Republican club.
"We have some hot debaters in
our club," Norville said, "and we
hereby challenge the Republican
club to dust off its arguments and
debate the following question: Re-
solved:' That the Democratic party
should be returned to power at
Washington in 1929. Any place and
date will be agreeable with us, and!
we both desire and expect an im-
mediate acceptance or rejection."
Whether or not Mol will accept
this potential jolt on behalf of the
Republican club has not been as-
certained, but if the debate takes
place it is probable that both sides
of the question will be thoroughly

Once Every Week
Pertinent Matters To Be Discussed
At Wide-Open Conferences
At a meeting of the cabinet of
the Student Christian association
held last night in Lane hall, it was
decided to hold a series of weekly
student conferences, at which
prominent faculty 'members will
speak. The first of these meetings
will be held on Nov. 1, and will
continue on every Thursday after-
noon thereafter. The purpose of
the meetings is to discuss life prob-
lems and the student's concept of
human values. The conferences
will be. open to both men and wom-
en students, and will be in charge
of Charles Moore, '29.

SAN PEDRO, Oct. 11-Away at
last on his long-planned expedi-
tion to the Antarctic, Commander
Richard E. Byrd today set sail for
New Zealand in the Norwegian
whaler, C. A. Larsen. With him
was the remainder of his hand-
picked followers going to the com-
mon rendezvous for the three other
ships that this year are to push
down into the Antarctic circle.
Westward with the setting sun
the giant whaler, last of the ships
to leave American waters, slipped
through Harbor Channel amidst a
bedlam of whistling harbor drafts
and crowds that lined the piers.
Even the shrill whistle of street
cars was raised in sending God-
speeds to the explorers.
Ross Sea was the objective of
the commander who later hopes to
fly over the South Pole in the same
way that he and the late Floyd
Bennett reached the North Pole.
More important, however, in the
announced plans of the Byrd ex-..
pedition was a long intensive study
of the Antarctic which may keep
the party exiled in the icy wastes
for two years or more. Byrd
stated that his flight over the pole
would, contrary to public opinion,
f not be in the nature of a race for

render all possible aid to Sir Hu-
bert Wilkins, the Australian, who
is also planning a flight over the

Complete renovation and house-
cleaning of all departments has
been the keynote of play production
activities during the last two and
one-half weeks. The visitor there
today finds an' entirely different
picture than has ever been pre-
sented during recent years in the
auditorium in University hall.

rooms. The properties which are
used in the productions have been
scrubbed thoroughly and in many
cases given new finishes. New rugs
have been installed in the aisles as
well as several other places in the,
theatre. Costumes have been com-
pletely gone over and cleaned.
Further in the new order of
things at play production, is in-
cluded the work of an ornamental
stipling process for the walls of the
theatre. The work of stipling has
been almost completed and will
probably be finished very soon, ac-
cording to Windt.
Construction of a new paint shop,
an electrical work-room, an addi-
tional dressing room, and several
other special departmental features
has occcupied much of the atten-
tion in the theater. The work has
progressed very rapidly and all the
auxiliaries are ready for use.
So complete has been this pro-
cess of renovation and house-
cleaning, according to Windt, that

Appropriation Is Recognition
The appropriation for the new
studio is a recognition of the in-
terest shown in the 'educational
programs being broadcast by Sta-
tion WJR-WCX from the Univer-
sity. During the past three years
over 7,000 people have requested
copies of the University Bulletin
containing all the addresses given
during the year by members of the
faculty. Interest in these programs
does not center upon any single
field of research. Medicine, sur-
gery, dentistry, economics, history,
English, engineering, art, architec-
ture, political science, pharmacy,
physics, business, education, chem-
istry, athletics, aviation, all have
found interested listeners in the
radio audience. The talks are
printed and distributed free to all
who request copies from the Uni-
versity at Ann Arbor.
It is anticipated that the new
studio will be used first for the
radio program of Thursday, No-
vember 1st, at seven o'clock. Upon
this program will b'e heard Edward
H. Kraus, Professor of Crystallog-
raphy and Mineralogy and Director
of the Mineralogical Laboratory,
Dean of the College of Pharmacy,
and Dean of the Summer Session.
