Last night in Hill auditorium
more than 3,000 students
thundered articulate support to
the Michigan football team in
its game this afternoon. Judge
"Bill" Day of Cleveland inspired
the audience as a Michigan
crowd has rarely been inspired
in the past. This afternoon the
Wolverine will attack the Badger
in the new stadium, and it will
not be the underdog attacking
the favorite; for no team with
such support as the Michigan
student body is going to give its
team this afternoon ever enter-
ed a game as the underdog.
It is no time for idle chatter
and facetious remarks about the
Michigan team; it is no time for
a sneer on the face of a Michi-
gan student. It is time, and
high time, that the whole
Michigan student body rise -as a
manrand pledge its undying
support to a team which has
fought against terrific odds in
the first three games of the year.
Whether Michigan wins or loses,
Michigan will be a better and
finer place for having backed
its team to a man.

"Go To That Game With The Idea
That Michigan Will Win"
Says Judge Day
"Go out to that game--not with
the idea of defeat, not with a sneer

on your face-but with the idea
that Michigan will win today," de-
clared Judge William L. Day, 'OOL,
former varsity football man, and an
Inveterate follower of Michigan
football games in addressing the
3,000 Michigan students assembled
last night at the pep meeting in
Hill auditorium.
Opening his speech with the de-
claration, "I came from Cleveland
to Ann Arbor today to see Michigan
beat Wisconsin," Judge Day told
the assembly, "In previous years
we have had teams, some of them
have won and some of them have
lost, but always they have been
backed by the student body.
"You can't go out and play foot-
ball unless you know that there
is somebody behind you, with you,
and for you," he continued. "Eleven
men can't play the game without
the spirit of thousands backing
them," ,
Coaches Send Messages
Speaking just before Judge Day,
Jack Blott, '23, three letterman and'
All-American , center, brought a
message from the coaching staff
aned fromxthae team at Barton Hills.
Before speaking, he read mes-
sages from "Bob" Brown, '26, former
Varsity captain and all conference
center and from Bennie oster-
Oosterbaan's message to the stu-
dent body reads as follows:
"In sociology we learn that the
environment has a great deal to do
with the growth and the devolp-
ment of the individual. You, the
students, are the environment of
the men on the football team. What
are you doing to help them? Is
your environment beneficial or a
hinderance? Are you asking,
"What is the matter with the
team?" That doesn't help. How
would you like to be asked after
doing your best in endeavor, 'What
is the Matter?'
Support The Team!
"Think it over. You can help a
lot. A few words of encourage-
ment go a long way. When a team
is winning, they don't need your
encouragement and plaudits; they
fell pretty good anyway. It is
when they are losing that few pats
on the back mean a lot. You know
the boys on the team feel a lot
worse about loosing than you do.
Give them your support! They need
Brown opened his statement,
"We have made a very marvelous
record in the 'past; and there is
very little to be discouraged about
this fall. The team has worked
very hard this year with little en-
couragement from students and
"Our Varsity this year can be
congratulated for the fine spirit it
has maintained, and it won't be
long before the flag will be flying
on the hilltop of victory," he con-
"Loyalty is tested under what
seems to be the most adverse con-
ditions. Let it never be said that
you had given up hope for Michi-
.gan and her football team. At the
darkest hour your encouragement
and support is most needed."
Freyberg Echoes Plea
Dick Freyberg, '30M, captain of
the 1926 track team; gave the op-
ening talk of the evening as the
representative of the student body.
His words were echoed in the senti-
ments of Brown's speech. Both
men pleaded with the student body
to "boost" the team.

Conference Held On Farm Relief
And Other Important
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 26.-Herbert
Hoover and Senator William E.
Borah of Idado, Republican Inde-
pendent in the Senate, sat at the
luncheon table today for more than
an hour and discussed farm re-
lief and various other subjects.
Neither the Republican presi-
dential candidate nor the .Senator.
made any formal statement re-
garding the conference but it was
known that Broah had it in mind
that the St. Louis speech upon
which Hoover now is working
should contain a more detailed ex-
planation of the farm relief pro-
gram outlined in the acceptance
The Idahoan, who has been the
most active stumping speaker for
Hoover in the campaign, believes
that such an exposition would be
of material benefit in the west al-
though, he has made it plain that
he has no apprehension regarding
the result in the great corn and
wheat belts.
Hoover announced upon his re-
turn from New York that the major
subject of his St. Louis address on
November 2, would be farming and
a development of waterways. He
has prepared a rough outline of his
speech and will devote the next
few days to its completion.
How much the announcement of
Senator George W. Norris that he
would support the . Democratic
presidential candidate came into
the discussion was not revealed.
However, it is known that measures
arq under consideration for off-
setting the defects that the Norris
declaration may have had in the
agricultural west.
Borah himself has declined to
discuss the move of Senator Norris,
explaining that he preferred first
to read the text of the speech the
Nebraskan will make at Omaha to-
morrow night-his first on behalf
of the candidcay of Gov. Alfred E.
Smith. It may be that after the
speech Borah and some others of
the Republican Independents of the
Senate who have been closely asso-
ciated with Norris in the fight for
what has been enominated as pro-
gressive legislation will have state-
ments to make.
A further exposition of his views
regarding women indindustry was
given by Hoover today in a talk
with Miss Elizabeth Christian, of
Chicago, and Mrs. Raymond Rob-
bins, chairman of the industrial
women's, division of the Republican
national committee.
"I am absolutely with you in
your efforts to get adequate labor

Feeling From Outset Opposed
To Proposal Of
Failing to gain the support of
more than half the men students
seated in the first twenty rows on
the lower floor of Hill auditorium
at last night's Wisconsin pep meet-
ing, the proposed amendment to
the Union constitution was defeat-
The amendment if it had re-
ceived a two-thirds majority from
those voting upon it and if that
group had exceeded 600 in number
would have gone into effect and
made it possible for an assembly
of but 100 members to change the
Voting on the suggested amend-
ment took up the first few min-
utes of the pep meeting. The ques-
tion was submitted by William E.
-Nissen, '29, president of the Union
and immediately challenged from,
the floor. An extension of the al-
loted five minutes was allowed
while Nissen read the amendment
text. A rising vote showed the
majority of the members present
to be opposed to the proposal.
Suggested By Committee
The amendment as it was sub-
mitted to the membership of the
Union some ten days ago for con-
sideration and voting last night
sought to lessen the difficulty of
amending the Union constitution.
It was proposed by the members
of the board of directors of the
JUnior after suggested by a special
committee appointed to consider
the proposal and endorsed unani-
mously by the board.
Previously it has been demon-
strated time and again that it is
a virtual impossibility, owing to
the laxity of interest among the
student body in Union affairs, to
get the necessary quorum of 600
to attend a Union assembly.
The change was called into con-
sideration this fall when it became
apparent that it was impossible to
pass any legal amendment to the
constitution. In previous years, un-
opposed amendments have become
a part of. the constitution through
the casting of numbers of proxy

(By Associated Press)
PITTSBURGH, Oct. 26-Fifty-six
acts of heroism in the commission
of which a dozen heroes lost their
lives, were recognized here late to-
day by the Carnegie Hero Fund
Commission, which, in addition to
the three silver medals and fifty-
three bronze medals, awarded pen-
sions aggregating $4,320 annually;
$19,200 for educational purposes
and more than $20,000 for other
worthy purposes.
For the first time in the 21 years
of the commission's history one
person was recognized a 'second
time for an heroic deed. He is)
Henry Naumann, a railroad cross-
ing watchman, of 141 Logan street,
Hammond, Ind. In June, 1924,
Naumann was awarded a bronze
:medal for saving a woman from
the path of a train. On March 30,
1927, the day before his resigna-
tion as crossing watchman was to
go into effect, Naumann plunged
in front of a train in an effort to
save an aged woman.

Traditional gridiron rivals will meet again at 2:30 o'clock
this afternoon when the Badgers of Coach Glen Thistlethwaite
make their initial appearance in the n e w Michigan stadium to
challenge the Wolverines determined bid for their first victory of
the season. With more than 70,000 of the permanent seats al-
ready disposed of, , it seems probable that the big bowl will be
filled to the limit by .game time.

For the second time in as many weeks Michigan will go into
the game the under-dog due mainly to the records of the teams in
the games played thus far. Wis-
consin holds victories over Notre
Dame and played a tie game with
Purdue last.Saturday, while Michi-

"We owe a great deal to Presi-

S. T. Dana of the Forestry school
to a crowd of 150 alumni, students
and faculty gathered at a banquet
in the Union last night at their
first reunion since foresters have
been graduated from the Univer-
sity of Michigan.
To Dean John R. Effinger of the
Literary college he gave credit, be-
ing the first to suggest the making
of a separate school of the depart-
ment of forestry when he said on
returning from a conservation con-
gress, "We should have a separate
department of Forestry and Con-
servation at the University, and it
should beathe outstanding one in
the country." Alexander G. Ruth-
ven, dean of administration, and
G. Carl Huber, dean of the Grad-
uate school, were likewise eulogised.

Prof. Filibert Roth who for more
than 20 years served as head of the

ary college. "Without him this
school would never have been pos-
sible," said Dean Dana.

Wolves in the past four years.
Everything To Gain
Michigan, on the other hand,
will be fighting with everything to
gain and nothing to lose. If the
Wolverines can upset the dope and
chalk up another success 'against
the Cardinals, there is still a
chance to make the season a suc-
cessful one.
In the last two games the Maize
and Blue eleven has shown plenty
of fight and a victory should lend
the confidence necessary in a win-
nng team. If the Wolverines show
any kind of an offensive this af-
ternoon and still maintain the de-
fensive strength displayed in the
Ohio and Indiana games, the Bad-
ger gridmen will find that they
have a tough assignment on their
The old injury jinx that has hit
the Wolverine squad so hard during
the past two weeks has apparently
robbed Coach Tad Wieman of at
least two capable performers. John
Totzke, star punter, and Del Whit-
tle, quarterback .will probably be
unable to play against the Badgers,
while it is rumored that Al Bo
vard's injuries will keep him from
taking care of the center post.
Rose Benched
Just what will be the result of
Coach Thistlethwaite's threat of
drastic action after the Purdue
game, aside from the benching of
Gene Rose, halfback, and Joe
Kresky, guard, remains to be seen.
Except for Rose, however, and
Smith, fullback, who is out with in-
juries, the Cardinals are expected
to lineup in the same order as they
did at Lafayette.
At the ends Thistlethwaite will
use Warren and L. Smith, while
the veterans Captain Wagner and
Binish will perform at the tackle
berths. Parks, a two letter man
and Linden will be at the guard
posts with Conry favored to start
as pivot man.
Cusinier, diminutive quarterback
will pilot the team with Lusby, for-
ward passer delux, team with Parks,
.the brilliant sophomore halfback
who has played in all three games.
Rebholz, a veteran performer will
play fullback and probably do most
of the kicking.
Cragin May Center
With Al Bovard still on the ailing
list on account of injuries sustain-
ed in the Ohio game, it is doubtful
whether Coach Tad Wieman will
run the risk of further injury by
using him against the Badgers. Ray
Cragin, who showed to an advan-
tage after Bovard was forced to
leave the game a week ago, will
probably be used in the pivot posi-

Seventy years ago today a baby
boy of Dutch parentage was born

years later after winning a strong
