Renowned Flonzaley Quartet Will
Be Here Nov. 23 On Farewell
Tickets are selling rapidly for the
semi-centenary anniversary series
of choral union concerts, accord-
ing to Charles A. Sink, president of
the University school of music.
Unusual enthusiasm over the com-
ing program has been in evidence
by , the number of early reserva-
tions ma Ie, Sink said.
4The series this year boasts a well
variated range of artists, including
three solo singers, two pianists,
twp violinists of note, a quartet of
musicians, a famous~ chorus, as
well as .a renowned symphony or-
Rosa Ponselle, recognized by
many as the =outstanding operatic
abprano of the day, is the first of
'the singers who will be heard here
this fall. She will appear on Oct.
10. Following her engagement by
about two.weeks, Amelita Galli
Curd, faoed exponent of coora-
tlira singing, will return to Ann
Arbor for a song recital. The third
singer on the program, Roland
Hayes, negro tenor who has rapid-_
ly risen to fame in this country
and abroad, is scheduled for a pro-
gram on Jan. 18.
Horowitz to Play
Vladimir Horowitz and Sergei
Rachmaninoff are the two pianists
who- will entertain .local music
lovers. The former will be accom-
anied on Nov. 12 by the Detroit'
symphony orclestra under the
baton of Victor Kolar. Rachanin-
off was heard several years ago in
Ann Arbor and at that time re-
ceived one of the greatest ovations
ever accorded an artist. When he'
comeshere on Feb. 13 he will play
a number of his own compositions
as well as a specially selected group
of other musical works.
Fritz Kreisler, who has often
been hailed by those interested in
violinists as "the greatest of them
all' will come here Dec. 13 for the
last concert before the holiday sea-.
son. Another violinist, this time a
woman, Yelli Daranyi, the distin-
guished Hungarian artists, will
play in Hill auditorium on Feb. 20.
She has received the plaudits of
many of the foremost musical
critics of the world and has caused
favorable comment wherever she
has played.
Quartet Will Appear
Nov. 23 will mark the final ap-
pearance in Ann Arbor of the
Flonzaley quartet, that world ne-_
nowned organization of musicians,
which is now on its farewell tour.
Ann Arbor moreoVer was one of the
first cities in America in which the
Flonzaley quqartet played when it
first came over to this country.
Ann Arbor has been included in
a special tour of the Pargue Teach-
ers Chorus which has been brought
to this country by a special com-
mittee of Czechoslovakian-Ameri-
cans who persuaded the group of
60 artists to come here for a very
limited number of concerts. On
Jan. 24, this well known group of
whom Walter Damrosch once said,
"There islnothing like it in the
world," will be heard here.
Including the concert series on
March 11, the Detroit symphony
w hestra with Alfred Mertz as
gnest conductor, will make their
setiund appearance of the series.
Met was formerly Wagnerian con-
dictor at the Metropolitan opera
house since he is one of the out-

standing conductors in the world,I
his appearance with the Detroit or-
(-.,stra is being awaited here with
ir eat interest.

More than 1,500 applications for,
work have been made by students
to the employment department in
charge of Mrs. Mary L. Stewart,
with headquarters. in the office of
the Dean of Student, and most of
the aplicants have been satisfac-
torly placed. It is estimated that
about the same number of men
have continued in jobs which have
been found for them in past years,
thereby making further applica-
tions unnecessary. This, according
to Mrs. Stewart, brings- the num-
ber of students working at least
part of their way through school
to nearly forty per cent of the total
:enrollment of men students.




Stand That Religion Has No
Part In Campaign
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Sept. 29.-Her-
bert Hoover announced flatly to-
day that he wanted no support for
the presidency on the basis of re-
His declaration was made in a
second formal statement repudiat-
ing a circular bearing the stamped
signature of Mrs. Willie W. Caldo
well, Republican national commit-
teewoman for Virginia and appeal-
'ing to the women to "save the Uni-
ted States from being Romanized."
I "I cannot fully express my in-
Idignation of such circulars," the
Republican presidential candidate
said. "Nor can I reiterate too
strongly that the religious question
has no part in this campaign. I
have repeatedly stated that neither
I nor Republican party wants sup-
port on that basis." '
"There are important and vital
reasons for the return of the Re-
publican administration, but this is
not on of them."
Supplements Issue,
Hoover's statement supplement-
ed one issue last night in which
he reiterated the declaration he
I made in his acceptance speech
against religious intolerance in
American political affairs.
Before he made that speech, he
issued instructions on which Dr.
Hubert Work, chairman of the Re-
publican national committee, sent.
notice to all Republican party of-
ficials and workers that neither
religion or prohibition were to be
treated as issues in this campaign.
Before issuing his statement to-
day, Hoover conferred with several
of( his closest advisors including
William J. Donovan, assistant Uni-
ted States attorney general, and
officers of the national committee.
When he called the newspaper
correspondents into his office to
make his statement public, he
plainly showed an intense feeling.
Declines .Discussion
Hoover declined to go into a de-
tailed discussion of the incident
which lec to his renewed declara-
tion, but Mrs. Caldwell, in a tel-
egram to the Republican national
committee, amplified her provision
in a formal statement that she had
not authorized the injection into
the circular sent to women in Vir-
ginia of any reference to the re-
ligious question.
I She stated to Republican party
I officials that she directed the is-
suance of the circular to volunteer
Hoover workers in the state and
gave a general outline of what she
wanted to save. Before the circular
was prepared, she was called to
Washington to attend a party Ton-
ference here, she explained. The
literature was sent out in her ab-
sence bearing a fascimile of her
1928-29 OFFICERS1

Going through the files, applica-
tions for "board jobs" were far in
the lead, while the number of mu-
sicians was second on the list. Al
though the list of kinds of work
desired was not as varied this year
as it has been in some years past,
the department has dealt with a
wide range of occupations. This
year, waiters, dishwashers, butch-
ers, bakers, musicians, oil-station
attendants, and many other
tradesmen have been placed, while
odd jobs are filled, as they are
needed, for a few hours at a time.
The employment department is
busy nearly all of the time during
the school year as requests for stu-
dents to do various kinds of work
are continually coming in and are
filled from the index of applicants.
The department has and almost
unlimited list of concerns, local and
national, who offer sales positions
on the commission basis. Com-
paratively few . of such positions
can be filled, however, because the
type takes too much of their time
from their studies.°

Governor Denounces Republican
Administration As To Way It
Has Enforced Laws
(By Associated Press)'
MILWAUKEE, Sept. 29.-Striking
his first campaign blow at prohibi-
tion, Gov. Smith contended tonight
that the state should be given the
right to' modify both the Eigh-
teenth Amendment and the Vol-
stead Act or to keep them in within
their borders.
As he wound up his initial
stumping tour through the West
with a speech in this city, once
widely known for its beer, the
Demcratic nominee for president
called for frank discussion of the
prohibition question and assailed
present restrictions on the manu-
facture and sale of liquor and the
Republican administration in the
way it has been enforcing them.
Renews Pledge
Then he outlined as in his speech
of acceptance, his program for
modification both both the'.Eigh-
teenth Amendment and the Vol-
stead law, only, howeve-, i the
streets were -a majority of the vot-
ers gave their approval. He re-
newed his pledge to guard against
the return of the salooi, but made
no direct reference in his prepared
text to the Canadian liquor system
as he did last month at his modi-
fication in Albany.
"It must be borne in mind," said
the New York governor, "that uri-
der my suggestion federal prohibi-
tion is preserved in its entiity 'for
the states that desire to remain
"It will remain always the duty
of the federal government under
my proposal to protect the states
desiring to remain dry from the
introduction or importation into
$hem, of alcoholic beverages.
Asserts Prohibition Stand
"Now I am fully aware," the
Democratic nominee went on, "that
as president of the United States,
cannot bring this about myself,
but, repeating what I said in St.
Paul, what we lack in this country
E s leadership; and if I am elected
president of the United States it
will be my duty to lay this matter
before every community that I can
reach and let them make their own
decision. If that is not Demo-
cratic government, I must confess
I do not understand it.
"You can expect nothing from
the Republican party. The long
record of eight years indicate that
they have used the law for patron-
age purposes and for political ex-
pediency. They have tried to be
wet when they were with the wets,
and dry when they were with drys.
They have silently stood by and
permitted the paralysis of the ma-
chinery of government when it
comes to carrying out the man-
date of the constitution and the
statute laws. It is, because of that
that after eight years they are
compelled to promise again that
they will do something about it if
given a new lease of life by the
American people."
Recalling the declaration in his
speech of acceptance that with re-

septc to prohibition two constitu-
tional duties evolve on 'the presi-
dent: first, to recommend to Con-
gress one in his opinion .is the in-
terest of the nation, and second, to
enforce the laws as he finds them.

Showing a decrease of more than
300 students for the total enroll-
ment' at this time last year, the
official figures showed the total
registration of the University to be
9,274 when the books closed yes-
terday noon. The enrollment at
this time last year was 9,579, 305
more than' this year.
The College of Literature, Sci-
ence, and the Arts shows the lar-
gest drop, 261 less students being
enrolled this year. Other schools
which showed losses are Law, 25,
Pharmacy, 3, Dental, 19, education,
57, and business administration, 4.
Several divisions. showed higher
totals however. There are: Col-
leges of Engineering and Architec-
utre, 19, School of Nursing ,, and
Graduate, 40.
Of the total for 1928, 6,788 are
men and 2,486 are women. In 1927,
there were 6,951 men and 2,628
women. Thus far, there are 1,318
freshmen enrolled as against 1,451
for a total in 31927.

SAN DIEGO, Cal., Sept. 29.-Ed-
ward Schlee . and William Brock,
Detroit' fliers, took off from Rock-
well' field here at 6:49:a. m., today
in"an attempt to break the world's
flight endurance record now held
by Germany.
The record' Schlee and Brock, De-
troit to Tokio fliers, are attempting
to ;beat is 65 hours 25 minutes, es-
tablished by 4ohann Risticz and
Wilhelm 'Zimmerman, at Dessau,
Germany, last July. The Germans
flew a Jrunkers plane equipped with
a 280 hoursepower motor.
Broek Pilots Ship
Brock and Schlee have a Bellanca
'monoplane fitted with a 220 horse-
power Wright Whirlwind engine.
Their. plane weighed 6,150 pounds
at the take off and Brock, who was
at .the controls, hurtled the ship'
into the' air with ease after a run
of seven-eighths of a mile over an
especially prepared runway. The
weather was ideal.
The plane carried 560 gallons of
gasoline and 21 gallons of lubri-
cating oil. Four fried chickens,
two quarts of concentrated soup,
two dozen hard boiled eggs, two
quarts of coffee, four gallons of
water, 100 sandwiches and several
dozen oranges and lemons were
taken along to keep Brock" and
Schlee from getting hungary and
thirsty during their contemplated
three days and nights in the air.
Make Dangerous Start
As the plane flew into the morn-
ing mist, it headed westward for
five miles directly over the Pacific
ocean as a turn to the right or left
would have courted disaster. Had
their motor stopped the fliers would
have plunged into the sea with
their three-ton land plane with lit-
tle likelihood that they could have
been rescued

CHICAGO, Sept. 29. - The Uni-
versity of Chicago's thirty-seventh
annual aggregation o f football
huskies, making their first aippear-
ance of the season, went down to
the scoreless defeat in both ends

of today's double header, dropping
the first game to the University of
South Carolina, 6 to 0, and the sec-
ond to Ripon College, of Ripon,
Wis., 12 to 0.
Coach Stagg, laboring through
the training season with a crippled
crew, sent the best team he could
muster together against the South
Carolina eleven. Trying every com-
bination of play and player, he
managed to stop the southern team
in the second half, and to keep the,
score down to the single touch-
down that was registered in the
second period.
