Date Of Voyage Recalls Columbus'
Trip Over Similar Course
Just 436 Years Ago

In the middle of an otherwise
drowsy afternoon yesterday, word
spread like wildfire among the
fraternities on campus that the
Federal officers had landed and
were making house to house can-
vases. Some dived into cellars,
some snapped their fingers and
smiled satisfactorily, and others
rushed for the telephone. At one
house, a waiting line of ten men,
each representing a different
group, stood in line to make calls.
After much hullabaloo and hel-
ter-skelter, the word was passed
that it was nothing more than a
representative from the Dean's of-
fice and a group of fire inspectors

Raber, Sutherland Announce Resignations
As Candidates For Senior Class President

Dean of Students,
University of Michigan,
Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Dear Sir:
Because of the closeness'
of the balloting for the Senior Class
presidency considerable factional
difficulty has developed. I believe
that this friction should be care-
fully avoided in future elections,
and so with the best interests of
the class of '29 at heart, I with-
draw my name as a candidate.
Sincerely yours,
Loy M. Sutherland.

Dean of Students,
University of Michigan,
Ann Arbor, Michigan,
Dear Sir:
Due to the intense friction
between parties active in the re-
cent election; and due to the
closeness of the final count, I, Fen-
ton Raber, withdraw my nomina-
tion for president of the senior
class of '29. I firmly believe the
efforts of those in charge of the
electionto be sincere andimpartial,
and hope that the difficulties
which were evident in this elec-
tion can be avoided in the future.
Fenton Raber.

T. Hawley Tapping returned yes-
terday morning from a hurried

ference with the officers of the
Holland club, and Thursday noon

Fenton Raber and Loy Sutherland have, in the opinion of this
committee, done a truly sportsmanlike thing in agreeing mutually to
withdraw from the contest for the senior literary class presidency-
thus clearing automatically a situation which had created a very bitter
and unfortunate factional dispute. To have held a new election with
both of these candidates in the field would have been merely to pro-
tract a situation which has already become extremely unpleasant, we
The committee realizes that these two withdrawals have meant
considerable sacrifice to both men, and were presented only for the
purpose of putting an end to the controversy resulting from the recent
election at which they received practically a tie vote. Neither would
leave his supporters leaderless if he did not feel that the best interests
of the class of '29 were to be served thereby.
After an extensive investigation of rumors this committee has
found that actual evidence of fraud in the recent election is practically
negligible; and that the attempts at fraudulent voting were about
evenly distributed between partisans of the two factions. We are abso-
lutely certain that neither of the presidential candidates was involved
in any of the few attempts that were made to register fraudulent
Because this committee feels that the factional struggle which
so evenly divided the class on Wednesday will be ended by the with-
drawal of these two candidates, another election will be held at 4
o'clock Monday.
The committee wishes to extend again its thanks to Mr. Raber and
Mr. Sutherland for their manifest spirit of fair play, and feels that
their withdrawal in the interests of class harmony is the finest per-
sonal action which has arisen from the entire election. The class has
gained as much from this display of sportsmanship as it would have
gained through the admittedly competent presidency of either of these

Group And Pep Assemblies, Class
Banquet Arranged For
Class Of '32
Plans which include two group
meetings and a pep assembly for
freshmen before the annual Fall
games and an all freshman ban-
quet to be held within a few days
after the games have been made
by the underclass department com-{
mittee of the Union it was announ-
ced yesterday by Jackson A. Wil-
cox, '30, chairman.
The all-freshman banquet, plan-
ned to be held about Dec. 1 will be
the first of its kind. It will be held,
at the Union and it is hoped by
committeemen, will be attended by
all men in the class of 1932. Two
years ago an attempt to hold a
similar banquet was made by Union
officials but failed owing to laxity,
of interest among the : freshman
that year.
In further outlining the under-
class program which is decidely
different from that of previous
years, Wilcox announced that there
would be six freshman groups
sponsored by the Union this fall.
Each group will contain between
150 and 200 men.
The first group meetings, it is
announced, will be held on Oct. 23

well as the three others sustained

Victorious in their opening games
with Wabash and Oklahoma univer-
sities, the Crimson will probably
take the field favorites over the
Wolverines, but it is the belief of
loyal Michigan fans that the team
which opposes the Hoosiers on the
gridiron this afternoon will perform
in a vastly different manner from
that of last week.
Tentative lineups given out last
Snightindicate that the makeups of
both teams will be considerably
altered from those of last week. In-
juries have caused Pat Page to shift
his battle front, while Coach Tad
Wieman is making several changes
in the hope of strengthening the
right side of the Michigan line and
supplying the backfield punch that
was so sadly lacking in the Wes-
leyan game.
Matthews To Be On Sidelines
Defense captain 'Rags' Matthews,
one of the outstanding guards in
the Big Ten last year, will be on
the sidelines because of injuries, as
will Paul Baley, quarterback, while
Trobaugh, veteran guard, was un-
able to make the trip. Swihart has
been selected by Coach Page to fill
Matthews' place in the forward
In the backfield, Coach Page has
built his tricky offense around Cap-
tain Bennett, whom arMichigan
scout describes as "the sweetest
back in the Western Conference,"
and the Wolverines must watch him
with the utmost vigilance if they
hope to halt the Hoosier's drive.
At quarter, the veteran Harrell
will probably be replaced by Bru-
baker with Ross and Hughes com-
pleting the quartet. In the absence
of Harrell, the punting duties will
fall to Hughes, the Crimson full-
M~c higanwill place her hopes for
victory on a greatly altered lineup,
and the result of the contest will
undoubtedly hinge largely on how
the four newcomers perform in
their first game as members of the
Varsity team this season.
Wolverine Lineup Changed
The changes in the Wolverine
line will be Draveling at right end,
Williams at right tackle and Squier
has been named as the probable
starter at right guard, although
it is possible that Steinke will get
the call. Both Williams and Drav-
eling are big men, but neither has
had any Varsity experience. It is
also expected that Cragin will start
at' left guard unless Poe's injured
knee improves considerably.
Coach Tad Wieman will also
place a completely revamped back-
field combination on the field
against the Hoosiers. Del Whittle,
letterman from the 1927 squad, will
call signals and his passing ability
should lend potency to the Michi-
gan attack. Totzke will team with
Captain Rich at the halves and is
slated to do most of the punting,
while Joe Gembis will again hold
down the fullback post.
