Discuss Advisability Of Preventing
Foolhardy Attempts To
Cross Ocean
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, Oct. 19.-More than
two days have passed since Lieut.
Commander H. B..McDonald, young
British naval officer, started on his
long and perilous flight from New-
foundland for England, and still no
news has come except an early re-
port from the steamer Hardenburg,
which yesterday located him about
700 miles east of St. John's.
Hopes now have almost'vanished,
but the aviator's young wife and
some of his friends, looking back
to the providential rescue by a ves-
sel in mid-ocean of Harry Hawker
some years ago, refuse to give up.
TAey are hopeful that he has been
rescued by a vessel which has been
unable to communicate its good
Sharp Lookout Kept
Had McDonald succeeded in
landing anywhere, however remote,
in the United Kingdom or France,
it is hard to conceive that he would'
not by this time have been heard
from. Reports of his flight must
have reached the out of the way
'places everywhere. Particularly in
Ireland and Scotland, a sharp look-
out has been kept.
Flares that had burned all night
at Croydon and other airdromes to
guide Lieutenant Commander Mac-
Donald to a safe landing were ex-
tinguished at dawn today and hope
that he had survived et out of]
the hearts .of many. It was the a
general belief thatnhe had become
the nineteenth person to perish
trying to fly the Atlantic.
At the most his tiny Moth plane
in which he risked his life in an
attempt to fly alone from New-
foundland, could hold only enough
gasoline for 35 hours of flying and
the thirtyfifth hour passed at 3:51
(10:51 p. m. Thursday, eastern
standard time.)
Officials Pessimistic
Airdrome 'officials were decided-
ly pessimistic regarding the air-'
man's fate, saying that there were
only two slight possibilities now
-that he had alighted on some,
remote island off 'the west coast'
of Scotland or had been picked up
by a boat unequipped with wire-
If, as it is beginning to be cleared,
another tragedy must be added to
the history of trans-ocean flight,
there will doubtless be a renewal
of the recent press discussion on
the possibility of preventing such
attempts without the most ordin-
ary precaution for the avoidance of
diaster. The general cencensus of
Wie press, however, is that author-~
ity cannot properly step in to pre-
vent risks inevitably attendant up-
on such developments in science.
Eighteen Lost Lives

cer, and Commander Mounevres,

New Election Date, As Decided By
Student Council, Set For
Monday Afternoon
For the second time within eight
days, a class in the literary college
will next Monday hold a second
election to select a president for
the coming year. Because it saw1
insufficient evidence to declare
either Edwin B. Poorman, '30, or
William Farrell, '30, elected as pres-
ident of the Junior class, the Sen-
ate committee on Student Affairs
yesterday decided that a new elec-
tion should be held and asked the
Student council to set a date. The
new election will be held at 4 o'clock
next Monday in the Natural Sci-
ence auditorium,it was announced
last night.
Recounts Made
Last Wednesday, the junior liter-
ary class held their elections for
class officers and J-Hop committee-
men. Two offices, those of presi-
dent Id J-Hop chairman, were
counted before the Student coun-
cilmen went to supper. Afterdsup-
per, they returned and counted the
remainder. At the insistence of
certain of the Council and some
outsiders, a recount was made of
the vote for president and J-Hop
On the afternoon count, Poorman
had led Farrell 282 to 247, and Har-
ry. Wallace, '30, had led Richard
Cole, '30, for J-Hop chairman, 272
to 247. The recounts showed Far-
rell returned as president by a vote
of 267 to 263.Wallace in the short
time since the other count had
dropped 24 votes somewhere, win-
ning again by the close count of
248 to 247.
Council Decides Issue
The Council decided at a special
meeting Thursday afternoon that
on the face of the vote, Farrell
should be named as president. The
matter was taken further to the
Senate Committee on Student Af-
fairs, with the result that they vot-
-ed to have a new election. At the
same time, the concensus of the
Senate committee was that it had
full confidence in the way in which
the Council handled the matter.I
The other members of the class
who were elected to office last
Wednesday will however hold their
offices, and the election on next
Monday will be one for the office
of president only.j

President Defines Common Heritage
Of Schools Of Canada And
United States
Linking the educational systems
of Canada and the United States
by pointing out their common heri-

}President Clarence Cook Little yes-'
terday addresseda large audience
gathered in London, Ontario, for
the Golden Jubilee of the Vniver
sity of Western Ontario and for the
inauguration of William Sherwood
Fox as president. President Little
was the spokesman for the univer-
sities and colleges of the United
Opening his message he said, "If
I had been asked to present to you,
on the happy 'occasion of your
Golden Jubilee any detailed educa-
tional or sociological, message to
which all the Universities of the
United States' could subscribe, it
would be next to impossible."
From this point, he went on to
a criticism of the educational sys-
tems of this nation and a compari-
son of those of Canada, Great
Britain, and this country. "In a
large, comfortable, and prosperous
country such as my own, the atti-
tude toward education is apt to be
agreeable instead of questioning,
and complacent instead of critical
..... We are apt to forget that the
reproduction of a standardized
product so highly successful as a
business method is fatal in educa-
tion. We are, as a result, in danger
of forgetting a magnificent heri-
tage given to the United States by
! our common mother."

desirability of a broad knowledge
on which to base the reaction to-
ward those experiences. He also
stressed the value of expressing
honest, individual opinions based
upon facts considered in the light
of experience and education. Prof-
essor Carrothers told the school
editors that their opinions founded
upon sincere consideration of facts
relating to problems rather than
upon prejudices expressed in the
editorial columns of the school

tant phase. He said that even

On water power, one of the last
subjects touched upon, the nominee
said that if the water power re-
sources were let in Republican
hands for another four years, they
would "be under private ownership
and operated for private profit."
Starting off his address by rap-
ping the Republican farm record,
the governor said that that party

same pledge they had in 1924. He
urged farmers, however, not to be
discouraged, declaring President
Coolidge had given them "sympa-

A reference by the nominee to
Senator Borah's activities in behalf

Fighting with their backs to the

for a victory will give the squd the
degree of confidence that is neces-
sary to a successful team, while an-
other defeat may prove disastrous
in view of the fact that five hard
games still remain to be played.
Just how the Wolverines will line
up against the Buckeyes will prob-
ably remain more or less uncer-
tain until the teams take the field,
although the practices of the week
have given strong indications of a
possible shift in the Michigan
backfield in order to gain the of-
fensive strength lacking in the first
two games.
May Shift Lineup.
It seems likely, unless the field
is so heavy that running game is
out of the question, that Joe Gem-
bis will be replaced by Captain
Rich at the fullback post, and tlat
Jack Wheeler, sophomore triple
threat artist, will be sent to the
halfback berth formerly occupied
by the Michigan captain. Wheeler's
speed and all-around ability may
lend the punch that has been lack-
ing on the offense.
If the field is sodden, on the
other hand, it is not at all im-
probable that the backfield will re-
main the same, because the line
plunging combination of Rich and
Gembis is one that would be cer-
tain to cause the Buckeye forward
wall plenty of trouble.
Ohio Positions Uncertain
Ohio's lineup is also more or less
uncertain, although 'there will
probably not be more than one or
two changes from that of last
week. Kruskamp, one of the great-
est blocking backs in the Middle

post, greatly increasing the power
of the Buckeye running attack.

Amelita Galli-Curci who will be
heard in a concert here Monday
night has had a spectacular career,
beginning in Milan, Italy early in
her life, and carrying her to the
pinnacle of fame in the operatic
and concert world.
In Milan it was where Mascagni,
noted composer of "Cavallerie Ris-
ticana," predicted a musical career
for her. There she studied inten-
sively from childhood, knowing
how to speak five languages at the
age of thirteen. Three years later,
she graduated from the conserva-

in "Rigoletto.".After her great suc-
cess there, the ascent on the ladder
of fame was rapid. She had great
triumphs at the opera houses of
Turin, Cario, Alexandria, Barcelona,
Madrid, and St. Petersburg, where
she sung before the Czar.
Despite all these triumphs in
other countries, Madam Galli-Curci
was hardly known when she arrived'
in the United States. Twelve years
gao, she was engaged by the Chi-
cago opera company as a guest
singer. The morning following her
concert, headlines in newspapers
proclaimed her triumph and Chi-
