All Radio Fans Are Invited To
Attend Studio Opening And
Watch Broadcasting

Michigan's new broadcasting
studio, realized by an appropriation
of the University following the
recognition of the great interest
shown in educational programs
broadcast duiing the past three
years, will be thrown open to the
radio fans of Ann Arbor next
Thursday night, Nov. 1, when the
fifth of the current series of "Mich-
igan Night" programs will be put
on the air between 7 and 8 o'clock
through station WJR-WCX, Detroit.
The studio, equal to the finest in
Detroit or the middle west, is
located in Morris hall, at the cor-
ner of State and Jefferson streets.
This hall, which was formerly used
for band practice, has been com-
pletely remodeled under the direc-
tion of Ward A. Davenport, of the
buildings and ground department.
In the building has been built an
accoustically perfect studio for
small ensemble groups and soloists.
.The walls of this room have been
covered with accoustic cellotex to
deaden all echo and resonance, the
drapes and heavy carpet also aid-
ing in improving sound qualities for
broadcasting. Across the front of
this studio is a long window,
through which the audience may
see the actual broadcasting of the
programs. The window is placed
in a wall sheeted on both sides with
celotex, heavily padded with sound
proof felt, and insulated with build-
ing paper.
Provide Auditorium
A large studio capable of seating
200 people will act as an auditorium
and will be used for the broadcast-
ing of such programs as cannot be
given in the smaller studio. It is
also in this large room that various
local radio dealers will be permit-
ted to demonstrate their receiving
sets upon succeeding programs.
The programs as broadcast from
the local studio are transmitted
over long distance phone to Detroit,
from Detroit to the Pontiac broad-
casting station by phone, at Pontiac
the program is put on the air and
then returned to the audience in
the adjoining room through the re-
deiving set. Thus the programs will
travel over 100 miles instantly in
rder to reach the next room.° -
Adjoining both the smaller stu-
dio and the auditorium is a small
announcer's room, equipped with
a speaker's pulpit and control
system of lights. Through the win-
fdows in this room, the audience
may view each of the speakers on
he programs.
May See Broadcasting
The radio fans will also be able
to look through the announcer's
room into the control room where
;he amplifying board of the Mich-
igan Bell Telephone company is
'djusting the voices and music be-
fore they are sent to the broad-
casting station of WJR.
The studio, auditorium, and an-
nouncer's room have been deco-
rated under the direction of Riss
T. Bittinger, instructor in architec-
ture in the department of creative
design. The accousti-celotex pan-
els are painted in bright designs to
represent sound waves, while the
wall celotex is finished in a light
tan. The woodwork is in jade green
with a purple baseboard and lining.
The studio and announcer's rooms
are carpeted with heavy green car-
Invite Radio Fans
All radio fans in this vicinity are
invited to attend the opening of
the studio, during the broadcast of
the regular Michigan Night pro-
,grams at 7 o'clock Thursday night.
Featured on the opening program
in the new studio is the University
Glee club, which will present
thirtyfive minutes of Michigan
songs and choral selections.

lated getaway after an interrupted
forced landing at Bridantine yes-
terday, owing to motor trouble.
When repairs had been complet-
ed and the craft again ready for a
takeoff, another difficulty threat-
ened further delay. Owing to an
extremely low tide of water, it was
found impossible to launch the
plane from the hangar runway.
Anxious to take advantage of al-
most ideal flying weather, Putman
urged the hangar force to make
an improvised runway, which after
considerable difficulty, enabled the
craft to slide into the water.
A pilot of the Ireland company,
was at the controls when the Fly-
ing Fish was taxied around the
runway and the crew remained on
the dock to avoid added weight.
Candidate Will Give Six Speeches
Through Border States On
Way To California
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 29-Herbert
Hoover began clearing his deck to-
day for the long jaunt across the
country which he will begin on
The Republican presidential can-
didate spent little time at his head-
quarters on Massachusetts Avenue,
devoting himself for the most part
to disposing of personal matters at
his "" Street home and to working
on his speeches he will make on
his trip to California.
Five speeches still are ahead of
the nominee before he casts his
vote a week from tomorrow at Palo
Alto, Cal. Four of them will be
made on the cross-continent cam-
paign journey.
This will carry him through the
border states of Maryland, West
Virginia, Kentucky and Missouri.
He will speak in three of these
states. The first of these addresses
will be made at Cumberland, Md.,
after which he will cross West Vir-
ginia during Thursday night to
Louisville where he again will
The most important of his cross-
country speeches will be made at
St. Louis on Friday night, however,
when, speaking from the border
territory he will probably make the
most detailed exposition of agricul-
tural problems he has given during
the campaign.
Although his address follows
closely on the announcement of
several days ago that if elected he
would summon an extra session of
Congress if it proved necessary to
pass farm relief legislation, there
has been no indication that Mr.
Hoover will make any reference to
this in his St. Louis speech. Some
of his advisors feel that, having al-
ready made clear his position on
the matter of an extra session,

Twelve Faculty Members Including
Deans Kraus, Griffin, And
Dana To Make Survey
Coincident with the announce-
ment of. the University committee
to make a tax survey in the state
of Michigan, the members of the
committee have made public a
statement concerning its organiza-
tion and its objectives. This com-
mittee was authorized at the last
meeting of the Board of Regents,
and has the approval of Governor
Fred M. Green.
Concerning the organization, the
group in charge of the undertaking
will be comprised of an advisory
committee of the following men:
Dean Edward H. Kraus, of the
Summer Session and College of
Pharmacy, Dean Samuel T. Dana of
the School of Forestry and Con-
servation, Dean C. E. Griffin of the
School of Business Administration,
Prof. J. B. Edmonson, of the School
of Education, Prof. E. M. Fisher of
the School of Business Adminis-
tration, Prof. J. W. Glover of the
Mathematics department, Prof. K.
C. McMurry of theGeography de-
partment, Prof. D. M. Matthews of
the School of Forestry, Prof. C. M.
Remer, Prof. I. L. Sharfman of the
Economics department, Prof. E. B.
Stason of the Law school, and Prof.
L. D. Upson of the Political Science
Plan Research Staff
In addition, there will be a re-
search staff) to be recommended by
the committee and to be approved
by the Board of Regents.
In their statement, the commit-
tee wished to make the following
points clear concerning their work:
1. It is a fact-finding and not
a policy-recommending body.
2. It will collect and present to
the people of the State of Michigan
and to their representatives infor-
mation bearing on taxation in
3. In doing this it will not advo-
cate an, theory or theories of tax-
ation or recommend the modifica-
tion, reform, or expansion of the
existing system of taxation.
4. It believes that an accurate
report on taxation in Michigan-
its development and operation-
should prove helpful as a basis of
appraising the wisdom, adequacy,
and effectiveness of our tax system.
Name Pertinent Matters
In a coinciding statement, the
pertinent matters were pointed out.
"The University has recognized
the fitness of its experts to compile
a fair and unprejudiced statement
on taxation in Michigan, and it
believes that in this way the citi-
zens of the state may be given val-
uable information at a much lower
expense than would otherwise be
possible. It was emphasized that
the findings of the experts would
in no way be influenced by the
University authorities, and in this
way, will represent the findings of
a group of experts and not in any
way an official opinion or activity
of the University as an institution,
of its administrative officers, or its
governing body."
Work is already underway on the
project, and as soon, as tangible
results are evidenced, will be

Expect One Of Largest Crowds
Country To See Michigan
Battle Illinois

Four University of Wisconsin
students who attended the Michi-
gan-Wisconsin game here Saturday
were homeward-bound today, pre-
sumably by train, after they had
missed connections with the pilot
of the four-passenger Travelair
monoplane in which they flew here
from Madison.
Making arrangements to meet
the pilot, Howard Morey, at noon
Sunday at Ford Airport, the stu-
dents went to Detroit following the
game. Flying to the Ford field as
scheduled, the pilot did not land
on learning that Sunday flying is
prohibited there, and returned to
the Ann Arbor municipal airport
without his passengers.
The students in their search for
their pilot missed Ann Arbor, where
the object of their search was
comfortably established in a hotel.


With 82,000 tickets already sold,
there remain only 5,000 seats, in-
I cluding those in the temporary
stands, to be erected for the first
time this year, for the Illinois-
Michigan grid game Saturday, it
was announced late yesterday by
the Athletic association. It is ex-
pected that these 5,000 seats will be
sold within the next two days, and
that before game time there will
be a shortage of tickets.
During the past week-end, which
was featured by the excellent show-
ing of the Wolverines in the Wis-
consin contest, about 6,000 seats
were sold for the coming tilt with
'the Illini. Decision to put up the
temporary stands came after the
If present indications on the tic-
ket sale come true, it will be the
first time this fall that the Michi-
gan stadium will be filled to capac-
ity. With the temporary stands,
the bowl holds 87,000. This would
probably be one of the largest
crowds in the country, as the 65,000
people that witnessed the Badger-
Wolverine battle last Saturday for-
med the third biggest football
crowd of the day.

southeast of Cape Sable. The ship
was then averaging 67 miles an
hour and the weather was reported
clear. She was about 980 miles
from Lakehurst and hoped to reach
her home port, Friedrichschafen,
by Wednesday noon.

somewhat south of the direct great

flight to Paris last year.
While weather conditions were
reported more favorable over the
southern course toward the Azores,
there were favoring tail winds to
the north which Dr. Eckener appa-
rently was determined to use to
their full advantage. Weather r-

ing in the message to indicate tht
his presence had caused chagrin

was one that Dr. Eckener had been
guarding against carefully.
The stowaway was Clarence Ter-
