Directors Will Seek P r a t i c a 1
Method Of Amending
Proposal of a change in the Un-

workable scheme of amending that
instrument will be made to the
board of directors of the Union at
a special meeting to be held tomor-

to the recommendations of a com-

the advisability of changing the
method of amending the Union
At the first meeting of the com-
mittee, held Thursday, the drafting
of the amendment authorizing the
so-called merit system was post-
poned until later for consideration
and the committee turned its at-
tention to a discussion of the ad-
visability of changing the method
of amending the constitution.
Committee To Report
As a result of this discussion, the
committee will report to the board

Proxy Voting Barred

Amendments, however, have been
passed by a system of proxy voting.
This system worked as long as ev-
eryone present favored the adop-
tion of the measures proposed.
Last spring, it was prohibited when
challenged in a vote upon the se-
ries of amendments proposed to
place the merit system in effect at
that time.
Supporters of the measure, de-
nied that means of securing pass-
age of their proposal, resorted to
a system of plural voting as a result
of which the ballots counted show-
ed a large majority in favor of the
amendment. This method of vot-
ing was also challenged by a num-

Well-Drilled And Colorful Indiana Band
Provides Interesting Feature To Game

Proving that it rightfully de-
serves the appellation that has
been given it, "The All-American
College Band," the Indiana Uni-
versity band lent a most interest-
ing and colorful feature to the
Wolverine-Hoosier contest played
yesterday afternoon in the Michi-
gan stadium.
The 100-piece visiting band was
the best drilled ever seen in the
,new Michigan stadium,'sand wasas
good as any which has appeared on
old Ferry field in the years past.
The band, picturesque in its mili-
tary uniforms and capes of red,
possessed a marching technique
and spirit that has seldom been
The formations made during the
halves were among the most exact
seen in Ann Arbor, in the memory
most of the students on the cam-
pus. They forming of "I-N-D-I-
A-N-A" was applauded by Michigan
supporters and commended as ex-
tremely well executed. That of
"M-I-C-H" and "I. U." in letters
and monogram was also received
with much favorable comment.
Because of similary good appear-
ances in Boston, when Indiana
played Harvard, and at Chicago,
last year, the Indiana band has
been called the "All-American Col-
lege Band."
Michigan's band, in larger num-
bers than it has previously ap-

peared, possessed a new drum
major-Roger Becker '29E. He
apparently knew how to "strut his
stuff," and had a reportoire of
many "Gordon Packer" tricks with
the baton. He is not the one who
led the Michigan band in the Ohio
Wesleyan game a week ago. At
that time the other drum major
tryout, Joseph Narrin '30, directed
the band.
Attendance at the game yester-
day was the smallest at any Michi-
gan Big Ten contest in a number
of years. It has been a long time
since seats between the goal posts
could be secured at par for a con-
ference game just before starting

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 13.-
Kentucky, another border state
presidential battle ground, openedt
wide its doors today and received
Governor Smith and his brown
derby with a tremendous shoutt
of welcome.
Coming here for a formal cam-I
paign speech on the tariff, the
Democratic presidential nominee'
was hailed with rousing cheerst
from the moment his special train
pulled into the station at 10:35
a. m. until he reached the HotelC

headquarters during his stay in the
Blue Grass state.IE

Getting into his automobile to
lead a procession through the,
principal streets, the governor took
his familiar seat on the tonneau
and waved his brown derby, first
with the right hand and then with

were carried along with the evident S

At 4 o'clock tomorrow afternoon
members of the senior class of the
literary college will assemble in the
Natural Science auditorium to vote
again for a class president. Due
to the fact that both Loy Suther-
land and Fenton Raber, the two
candidates in the disputed election
of last Wednesday, have renounced
their candidacies, two new men will
be in the competition for the office.
This will be the' only office to be
voted upon, the other three officers
holding their places. Both Suth-
erland and Raber felt, it wiser to
withdraw than to keep the faction-
al fires from burning over the
week-end, and The Daily of yester-
day morning carried their resigna-
tions, together with an explana-

members of the Student council
who were appointed to investigate
the matter and confer with Dean

According to J. A. Bursley, dean
of students, and members of the
Student council, all possible steps
will be taken to prevent any cheat-
ing in the class elections from now
on. Any positive evidence against
a man of cheatingtor using cor-
ruption in the elections will be
enough to expel the man from
school, with no appeal whatsoever.
If any man is proved guilty of this
offense, it has been confirmed,
there willtbe no chance for another

Junior class elections will be held
during this week on the same
schedule according to schools and
colleges as the senior elections of

spective elections on Tuesday. On
Wednesday, the literary juniors will
vote for their officers. On Thurs-
day the juniors in Education, in
Business Administration, and in
Pharmacy will vote.
The junior class elections will
include, beside the voting for the
class officers, voting for members
of the J-Hop committee. This year
a literary junior will lead the Hop,
and a special vote is to be taken
for the chairman of the commit-

Lieut. Commander Chas. Rosendahll
Among The Twenty Passengers
On Trans-Atlantic Flight!
(By Ass"ciated Press)
NEW YORK, Oct. 13-The giant
German dirigible Graf Zeppelin,
hindered at first by adverse winds
and then by damage to her port
stabilizers, tonight was steadily
winding her way to the United
States with the likelihood that she
would reach her goal sometime late
tomorrow or early Monday.
For a little time today the world
was given a thrill as word came
from the air liner with its 20 pas-
sengers indicatiing that she might
require assistance but reassuring
news came quickly and the latest
advice gave every promise that the
ship was forging ahead toward
Lakehurst, N. J., and a safe moor-
At 2:30 o'clock this morning,
eastern standard time, the Graf
Zeppelin was approximately 1,800
miles due east of the Bermudas.
She had swept 250 miles south of
the Azores in a wide loop from Ma-
deira, taking advantage of more
favorable winds over that course. I
She was making good progress and
set on a course that would carry
her over Bermuda.
Trouble Crops Up
Hour after hour she sped on to
the west until at 6:25 o'clock this
morning, eastern standard time
she sent wordrthat trouble had
cropped up. Her port horizontal,
used as a stabilizer, was damaged
and repairs were being made to,
the cover as conditions permitted.
She was compelled to reduce her
speed by half and was making but
35 knots.
With this news came a request
that a surface vessel proceed along
her course and stand by. The ship
was then about 1,800 miles due east
of Charleston, S. C. The message
was signed by Lieut. Commander
Charles E. Rosendahl, commander
of the American dirigible Los An-
geles and a guest of Dr. Hugo Ecke-
ner, commander of the Graf Zep-
Later, however, the naval depart-
ment received word from the ship
that repairs had been made and
that the ship was proceeding at 50
knots on a course directly toward
Lakehurst where the navy depart-
ment was making extensive prepa-
rations to receive her.
Request Weather Report
Its message stated that the ship
anticipated no need for the surface
vessel previously requested. A
weather synopsis was requested as
well as a forecast along her present
course. This information was im-
mediately forwarded by Washing-
The forecast said that the direct
course to Lakehurst would bring
the ship head into winds while a
more southerly route would give
her more favorable wind condi-
tions. In view of this, there was a
possibility that the ship might
again veer southward and would
pass the Bermudas before turning
north to skirt the south Atlantic
coast of the United States. Advices
from Friedrichschafen, Germany,
j the home port of the air liner, said

that she was expected to pass the
Bermudas about midnight. It was
understood that the port horizontal
has been damaged by a sudden ver-
tical gust of wind.
I If the zeppelin should strike for
Lakehurst by way of Bermuda she
would have about 1,800 miles to
cover. At her last average of 50
miles an hour it would mean an
additional 36 hours or a total of
191 and a half hours. This would
bring her into port about 9:30 p.
m. Sunday. The wind along the!
coast, however, was none too good
and there was the distinct possi-
bility that she might not get in
until early Monday.

mated at 35,000 people. Alth
threatening rain, it was ideal for
football, the temperature being
considerably cooler than that of
a week ago.
Going into the contest favored
to take the measure of the Wolver-'
ines, the Pagemen soon found that
they had a real scrap on their
hands, the revamped Maize and
Blue team playing them on even
terms throughout the first two
In the final periods, however, the'
flashy Crimson backfield began to
function and the combined drive
of Captain Bennett, Faunce, and
Reinhardt forced th Wolverines
to remain on the defensive during
the greater portion of the time.
Make Five First Downs
The first half saw the Wolves
score five first downs to four for
Indiana, but during the last two
periods the Crimson backs carried
the oval 154 yards for seven first
downs, while the Michigan team
could score only one.'
Although it is undeniable that
the Wolverine backfield still lacks
the offensive punch necessary in
a winning team, it is also an un-
disputed fact that yesterday's
game uncovered a very capable
punter in John Totzke, a halfback
recently promoted from the Junior
Varsity squad. Totzke i."as called
upon to kick the ball 13 times and
his average for the game was 40
yards as compared to 36 for his op-
The work of Truskowski and
Draveling at the ends also merit
special commendation, far surpas-
sing the exhibition turned in last
week. Truskowski showed to ad-
vantage in covering punts and on
defense, while he also was on the
throwing end of the longest pass
completed by Michigan, a 27-yard
toss in the second quarter.
Draveling Plays Well
Leo Draveling, starting his first
Varsity game, also acquitted him-
self well, turning in end runs and
getting a large share of the tack-
les made on the right side of the
line. Pommerening played his
fine game, while Cragin, Williams,
and Poe all turned in steady per-
Captain Chuck Bennett was the
offensive star for the Hoosiers,
bearing the brunt of the ball carry-
ing to total 151 yards in 22 at-
tempts, although Faunce and
Reinhardt also made a number of
good gains, the former scoring the
single touchdown of the day.
In the line Randolph, the Crim-
son center, stood head and should-
ers above his teammates both on
offense and defense. Catterton
at end, and Unger at tackle, were
the other outstanding linemen for
the visitors.
Unleash Plunging Attack
Soon after the opening kickoff
Michigan took the ball near her

a line plunging attack that netted

y Le iwcnigan staa um was ony
grid game, the crowd being esti-
ough the day was cloudy and
found the team playing on prac-
tically even terms and Totzke and
Harrell engaging in one of the
prettiest punting duels yet seen in
the new stadium. Bennett proved
the offensive star for Indiana, be-
ing largely responsible for the four
first downs registered in this half
of the game.
.On a clever double pass play
Truskowski hurled a long toss to
Captain Rich, who stumbled and-
fell as he caught the ball. The play
carried the ball to Indiana's 35-
yard line and was good for 27 yards.
Here an end run failed to gain, and
two short passes were incomplete,
and then Randolph broke through
the line to smother Straub on an
attempted fake from oplacekick
formation, the Hoosiers gaining
possession of the ball.
Threaten To Score
Shortly after the half Bennett
carried the ball to the Michigan
25-yard line on four successive
plays, but the Wolverines braced
and took the ball on downs. Tot-
zke punted out of danger.
The Hoosiers threatened the
Michigan goal in the third quarter,
Bennett advancing the ball to the
30-yard line, but again the Wolver-
ine pass defense stiffled three at-
tempted throws, then Harrell's
kick was short and out of bounds
on the 20-yard line.
With Reinhardt and Bennett al-
ternating at carryingdthe ball, the
Crimson made two first downs in
rapid succession. Reinhardt added
ten more yards in three attempts,
and then Faunce circled Michigan's
right end for a 15-yard gain before
Straub forced him out of bounds.
Reinhardt continued to hammer
the Michigan line for short gains
until the ball was within striking
distance of the goal and Faunce
dashed off the Wolverine right
tackle for a touchdown. Rein-
hardt's attempted kick for the ex-
tra point was wide.
Only a few minutes of the con-
test remaining, Michigan un-
leashed a passing attack In an at-
tempt to knot the score. On a fake
play from punt formation, Totzke
completed an 18-yard toss to Rich.
