J-Hop committeemen for the com-
ing year.

dent over Edwin B. Poorman after

"The better type of social work-
ers have dug deep and have found
the oft obscure causes of many of

our social ills," declared Dean
Henry M. Bates, of the Law school,
last night before the annual Michi-
gan State Conference of Social
Work meeting held at the Union,
continuing today and tomorrow.
"They know better than do lay-
men the complex of conditions and
factors which produce plague spots
in our cities," Dean Bates contin-
ued. "The social worker can prob-
ably make the greatest single con-
tribution to the successful study of
the crime situation which is ter-
rifying and horrifying the Ameri-
can people today.,"
After Dean Bates' address in
which he discussed the relationship
of the professions to social work,
the conference heard Dr. C. C.
Carstens, of New York city, execu-
tive director of the Child Welfare
league of America, and a prominent
authority on social work, who spoke
on "Education, Professional Train-
ing, and Placement in Social Work."

day was no ordinary day. The rain
was nothing unusual for Ann Ar-

buckle up their coats and face the

Reputation Assured With Success
Of First Publication
Of "Congo"
Preacher of the "Gospel of Beau-
ty" and trader of rhymes for bread,
Vachel Lindsay, America's trouba-
dor poet, will appear at 8 o'clock
tonight in Hill auditorium under
the auspices of the Inlander lecture
series. Admission will be 75 cents.
This is the same lecture series
which has sponsored the appear-
ance here in former years of Amy
Lowell, Louis Untermeyer, Carl
Sandburg, Alfred Kreybourg, Ham-
lin Garland, and Dorothy Canfield.
It was revived last spring and is
being continued again this fall.
Lindsay has also appeared here
once previously under the auspices
of the series.
The possessor of a rich back-
ground and an education dating
back to an excellent training and
culture in his younger days, Lind-
say was by choice and intent a pen
and ink designer.
In pursuit of this vocation, he
studied first at the Chicago Art
Institute and later at the William
E M. Chase Art school of New York
City. H also had work in the
Metropolitan Art museum of that
city. From this work; Lindsay be-
came a lecturer on the history of
'iring of lectures, Lindsay has
within the past 15 years branched
forth on a career, more romantic
and more intriguing, perhaps, than
that of any other American literary
With the publication of the "Con-
go" his reputation as a poet was
assured. Since then he has been
in constant demand as a reader
of his works. Included in his works
are four pamphlets now out of

sponsored by the Alumni associa-
tion, and radio broadcastingthat

The Ohio State radio station,

broadcast the game play by play.
The other two stations are WGN
of Chicago and WWJ of Detroit.

streets and taxis at the same time
are carrying record-breaking
crowds, something is indeed hap-
Yesterday it was junior elec-
tions. Various factions had no
thought of letting inclement
weather interfere with their get-
ting full votes on their respective
tickets. So numerous students
found it easy to get free taxi rides
to Natural Science auditorium. And
a free taxi ride, even through the
rain and not in the direction of a
sorority house or dormitory, is not
to be scoffed at, especially here in
Ann Arbor where taxi wars have
yet to permeate.
But fraternities did not care to
hire cabs, for the most' part. Aft-
er communications with Joe Burs-
ley and Paul Kern, the Student
Council factotum, had convinced
them that juniors could not have
freshmen pledges vote for them by
proxy, they decided to make sure
that there would be plenty of rain
coats for the juniors to wear down
to the election by corraling all
those that belonged to pledges.
That is why freshmen had only old
suits and pots to protect them-
selves from the rain yesterday.
Yes, yesterday saw strange sights.
But praise be to campus politicians
(and taxis and slickers) a full vote
was cast.
Popular Musical Program To Be
Furnished By Union Dance
Broadcasting from the studio
room on the fourth floor of Uni-
versity hall, the third Michigan
Night radio program of the cur-
rent series will be on the air be-
twen 7 and 8 o'clock tonight
through station WJR-WCX, the
Richards Oakland Co.'s "Good-
Will Station" of Detroit.
Included on tonight's program is
a talk to be given by President
Clarence Cook Little, who will ap-
pear before the microphone for the
first time this season. Although
it is not definitely known as to
what he will speak on, the title of
his talk is "Comments."
Randolph G. Adams, custodian of
the William L. Clements Memorial
Library, and professor of history,
will speak on "The Destruction of
Libraries." He will deal with the
great losses incurred each year by
libraries due to vandals and thieves.
Prof. Floyd Firestone, of the
physics department, has chosen as
his subject, "Sound." He will dis-
cuss the subject of accoustics and
the work being done at the Uni-
versity in that field. He will also
talk on the planning of auditor-
iums from the standpoint of se-
curing the most favorable accous-
tical arrangement.
Dr. Vernon L. Hart, professor of
surgery in the medical school and
specialist in the children's ward of
the University hospital, will dis-
cuss Tuberculosis at the Spine and
Hip Joint in Children.
Alternated with the talks by the
four members of the University
faculty, is a program of popular
and college music to be presented
by Paul Omer and Don Loomis'
ten-piece Union orchestra. This is
the first time that the orchestra

has broadcast over the radio on a
regular Michigan Night program.
Their opening numbers will be
"The Victors" and "College Days."

New York, Buffalo, Chicago, Toledo,
And Philadelphia Are Out
Of State Stands
Fourteen performances of the
1928 Union opera will be given in
many of the leading cities of the
country during the Christmas sea-
son when the production goes on its
annual tour of the Middle West and
East, it was announced yesterday
by Paul Buckley, general manager
of the Union.
The show will open in Ann Arbor
Monday night Dec. 10, for its usual
week's run. As has been customary
in the past the following week will
find the cast resting and making a
few minor changes in the show.
Toledo will be the opening per-
formance for the outside cities this
year. The Rivoli theater will house
the opera on Friday night, Dec. 21.
The next night will find the chorus
girls, cast members, chorus men,'
committee men, and all those con-
nected with the show busy at the
Taft auditorium in Cincinnati
where the show will play.
Sunday Open Date
It has not yet been definitely de-
cided where the persons of the
company will spend Sunday, Dec.
23, as the Opera never plays on
Sundays. However, the Academy of
Music audience in Philadelphia on
the night of Monday, Dec. 24, will
find the opening number ready as
usualnwhen the scene ringsup on
the annual presentation of the
opera in the old Quaker city.
The New York Metropolitan
opera house will find the Michigan
opera present on Christmas night,
replacing the noted stars of today'
and yesterday who have usually
been the the attraction at the well
known theater. Following the per-
formance there, the company will
go to Buffalo for a performance at
the Consistory on Wednesday, Dec.
26, after which the East will give
away to the West again when the
show goes to Cleveland for a per-
formance the following night at
The Wings.
Three Detroit Showings
Orchestra Hall in Detroit will be
the scene of three presentations on
Friday, Saturday, and Monday
nights, Dec. 28, 29, and 31. Follow-
ing Detroit, Saginaw, Lansing, and
Grand Rapids will be on the itiner-
ary for performances on successive
The usual performance at Chi-
cago will be given on Friday, Jan. 4,
at the Auditorium theater. Pre-
viously Chicago was the first city
on the itinerary, but it was decided
this year to shift it near the end.
The company will break up with its,
performance in Kalamazoo on Sat-
urday, Jan. 5, when many of the
men will go to their respective
cities for a short vacation and
others will return to Ann Arbor to
wait the re-opening of school ses-

Dr. Georg Kartzke, assistant di-
rector of the Deutches Institut fur
Auslander of the University of
Berlin, will speak of "Educational
Tendencies in Germany Today," at
4:15 o'clock tomorrow in the audi-
torium of the University high
school. Due to an error, it was
announced in The Daily last week
that Dr. Kartzke would speak onI
Friday, Oct. 12.!
Aside from holding an important
position at the University of Berlin,
Dr. Kartzke is well known in this
country, having held positions at
many universities both here and in
Canada. He was for eight years a
professor at Yale university and
spent a year each at the Teacher's'
college of Columbia university,
I Dickenson college, the University
of California, and the University
of Toronto.


"I am heartily in favor of the
proposed amendment making a
quorum of 100 necessary to amend
the constitution instead of 600, as
experience has shown us the im-
practicability of the older method,"
Prof. Evans Holbrook, of the lew
school, declared yesterday in dis-
cussing the proposed amendment
to the Union constitution.
The newly proposed change in
the Union constitution would
change the number necessary to
constitute a quorum at a Union
assembly from 600 as at present to
100 while retaining the provision
that two-thirds of those present
must vote in favor of an amend-
ment in order to secure its adop-
"While at one time, it was com-
paratively easy to gather a full
quorum of 600 at the Union ban-
quets held in old Waterman gym-
nasium," Professor Holbrook con-
tinued, "these were an annual in-
stitution in the early years of the
Union to which prominent speak-
ers were. invited and at which a
thousand to twelve hundred stu-
dents were in attendance.
"We now, due to change in cus-
tom as well as to a lack of ban-
quets, have no yearly meeting at
which a large portion of the cam-
pus is in attendance and at which
issues of the time may be brought
Madame Galli-Curci To Be Assisted
In Choral Union Concert By
Pianist And Flutist
Amelita Galli-Curci, popular co-
loratura soprano, will appear in a
concert here Monday as the second
artist on the current choral union
series. She will be assisted by her
husband, Homer Samuels, pianist
and Ewald Haun, flutist.
Madam Galli-Curci has been
heard in Ann Arbor twice before.
Many local music lovers still re-
member her first appearance here
when officials recognized her ability
early in her career and following
her well known Chicago ovation
more than ten years ago, they im-
mediately extended a contract to
her to appear on the May festival.
Illiness prevented her keeping the
contract, but she appeared on the
regular concert series here the fol-
lowing fall.
Four years ago Madam Galli-
Curci was again heard in a recital
in Ann Arbor and received a great
ovation, according to those who
were present. Her appearance onI
the program this year is the result
of many requests which have been
obtained by Charles A. Sink, presi-
dent of the University musical so-
ciety that she sing here again.
Although the program for the
concert has not yet been announ-
ced, it was stated yesterday that
she has arranged a special pro-
gram, which she believes will be
popular with the audience here. It
will probably include several arias
and certain of her own favorite
songs, with piano accompaniments
and flute obligato.

up, discussed and voted upon.
"Therefore the committee (of
which Professor Holbrook was the
chairman) felt that some new plan
must be found and the proposed
amendment seems to fill the bill.
It is now possible to change the
constitution with a fair amount of
ease but still there is adequate pro-
tection in that anything not de-
sired will be defeated," he con-
The proposed amendment will be
submitted to the male membership
of the student body, assembled on
the lower floor of Hill auditorium
at the time set for the beginning
of the pep meeting on the night of
Friday, Oct. 27, before the Wiscon-
sin game.
