Convening Congress
To Meet Old Issues
Of Former Campaign
Hoover To Determine Advisability
Of Granting Extra Session
For Farm Debate
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 1.-Two big
ghosts of the campaign-farm re-
lief and tariff revision-hovered
over the capital today as return-
ing members of Congress squared
away for the completing short ses-
sion beginning Monday.
Leaders of both the House and
Senate found plenty of business for
the term ending next March 4, as
they pondered over the calendar
today. Bills to appropriate several
billion for next year's government
expenses will occupy immediate at-
tention of the House and the old
Boulder Canyon dam row will come
Campaign Pledges Chafe
But the reelected Republican
hosts are looking ahead already to
the problems of the approaching
administration of Herbert Hoover,
and the pre-session discussion,
amounting almost to wrangling,
revolves about campaigns for farm
relief and tariff revision and an
extra session for their considera-
The call of Chairman Hawley of
the House Ways and Means com-
mittee assembling its members on
Monday to discuss a tariff revision
program served temporarily to
quiet the Republican row as all
hands looked forward to the com-
mittee's decision.
But with Herbert Hoover, who is
visiting South America, lies the fi-
nal decision on the extra session
which many members are demand-
ing for the consideration of tariff
revision and farm relief. With
these demands increasing, another
dispute is on as to whether it shall
be held in the spring or -next fall.
Longworth Wants Session
Speaker Longworth of the House
today reiterated his favor of a ses-
sion next September, if an extra
one must be had for tariff revision.
In the Senate Chairman Smoot of
the Finance committee stands pat
for an extra session as soon as
the newly elected Congress comes
into power next spring.
Similarly, majority leaders are
divided on how and when to dis-
pose of farin legislation.
Chairman McNary of the Senate
Agriculture Committee said today
he would have a new measure, de-I
signed along administration lines,
ready for presentation next Tues-!
To Open With Brief Sessions
Programs for the opening day
call for brief sessions in both the
Senate and House. The usual reso-
lution of appointing committees
to inform tie President formally
that Congress is in session will be
made out of respect to members
who have died during the summer.
Tuesday, 'President Coolidge's
message will be read and Wednes-
day the two branches will go to
work. There is a possibility, how- I
ever, that Senator Johnson, Repub-
lican, California, co-author of the
Boulder Dam Bill for the develop-
ment of the Colorado river basin,
will insist his measure be taken up
as early as Tuesday. It has the
right of way until disposed of.

Grammar laws are made to be
violated just as much as are the

it was hinted in a speech delivered

If a word is used repeatedly by
large numbers .of people, and more
or less by those in the accepted
social sphere, this fact indicates
that a word is advisable and should
form a part of the English langu-
age, it was said.
The word "ain't" is good English
despite the contrary claims of sev-
eral hundred other English teach-
ers, Professor Fries asserted. It is
actually a legitimate contraction
of "am not," he said, and is in-
correctly used only with plural
nouns and pronouns, and in theI
third person.
Because many persons feel an
unconscious and disagreeable re-
action to the word, however, it is
held to be bad English, according
to the speaker. Because of this
feeling which people have for the!
word, many changed their votej

'radio speeches grated on his hear-
ers' sensibilities, according to Pro-'
fessor Fries.
Many other words and construc-
tions which are used in every day
language all over the United States
should be granted the approval ofj
grammarians because these words
form the quickest and easiest way
of expressing and understanding a
given thought, Professor Fries
claimed. Therefore such phrases
as "it is me" and "he had wrote"
should receive the 0. K. of the
strictest of Bostonians, he said.
No opinion was given as to the
propriety of the idiomatic phrase
popular in college circles through-
out the country, "let's take a bolt."

Finance Minister Of Republic Joins
President-Elect In
(By Associated iress)
GUAYAQUIL, Ecuador, Dec. 1.-
Herbert Hoover today received a
first-hand account of many
changes brought about in recent
years in the government of Ecua-
dor and the narrative was filled
with phrases which had a familiar
ring such as a Federal reserve sys-
tem, farm loan banks, debt liqui-
dation, and the setting up of a
gold standard.
The review of the administra-
tive reforms in the south American
republic, the first to be visited on

Appointments Must Be Made
Once To Include Pictures In




Several announcements con-
cerning the, 1929 Michiganensian
including pictures, subscriptions,
printing engraving, and design-
ing were made yesterday byt
Thomas Thomas, '29, managing
A number of seniors, according'
to Thomas, failed to make appoint-
ments with photographers during
the time limit which closed Satur-
day. These appointments must be
made at once, he stated, or else
the pictures of those who have not
made appointments will not appear
in the book.
In answer to a number of ques-
tions concerning the time for the
taking of fraternity and 4orority
group pictures, Thomas announced
that these groups may make ap-
pointments for pictures with the
photographer of their choice im-
mediately after the Christmas va-
cation period but that no appoint-
ments are to be made previous to
that time.
Several sample copies of the new
heavily embossed tan cover have
been rceived from the manufac-
turers, Thomas said, and will be
placed on display during the next
sales campaign which will be held
soon. More than 50 per cent of the
half price receipts which were pur-
chased by students for 50 cents and
are redeemable for $1.00 on the
price of an 'Ensian have been
turned in, Thomas avers. Holders
of the balance of these stubs, he
urges, should redeem them as early
as possible as the price of the year-
book will advance from $4 to $5 on
Dec. 15.
Art work on the division pages
of the Michiganensian is rapidly1
nearing completion, Thomas stat-
ed, two plates having already been;
sent to the engravers. About half
of the sub-division plates are com-]
plete and the rest are rapidly be-
ing finished.
The sub-division plates are be-
ing prepared as dry-brush carica-
tures with a slight element of hu-
mor apparent in each one. Al-
though printing contracts have
been arranged and signed, none
of the actual print work will be,
submitted for some time.
Perhaps the most unique section
of the work Thomas believes, will
be the satire section which will
embody a number of photographs
and cartoons together with suffi-
cient satire to make it one of the
outstanding sections of the. book.

Collection Of Rare
Books On Exhibition
Shakespearean Group Displayed
In Main Corridor
Of Library
Representative selections from
the' McMillan Shakespeare collec-
tion are now on display in the
main corridor of the library. This
collection is the largest and best
rare collection in the library, con-
sisting of fine specimens from the
second, third, and fourth folios of
the Shakespearian editions.
The McMillam Shakespeare col-
lection contains about 8,000 vol-
umes, 6,525 of which were pur-
chased in 1883 under the super-
vision of Prof. I. N. Demmon, with
money given for that purpose by
Senator James McMillan of De-
troit. The University library does
not own any of the first folio, nor
any of the original quarto folio edi-
tions of the separate plays, but it
is fortunate in possessing the sec-
ond, third, fourth folios, and other
Shakespearian rarities.
One case contains selections
from the third folio of the plays,
which is considered more valuable'
than the first, as almost the entire
first impression of both 1663 and
1664 issues of the third were de-
stroyed by the Great London fire
of 1666, 'as they lay unsold in the
printer's warehouse. This third edi-
tion is notable in that it is the
first in which the final "E" is
dropped from the poet's name. Two
of the finest examples of modern
printing are on display here also
one being printed in 1893 by Wil-
liam Morris and one in 1909 by F. J.
Numerous selections are on dis-
play which advance the Baconian
theory that Francis Bacon wrote
the works accredited to Shake-
speare. Several prove Bacon to
have written works by other
famous authors. A certain Delia
Bacon (whose name is co-incident)
is recognized as being the first to
assault the Shakespearian pedes-
The first translation of Shake-
speare was made into German in
1762-1766. Representation of that
and other translations into French,
Hebrew, Hungarian, Spanish,,
Greek, Italian, Icelandic, Dutch,
and Russian bear evidence of the
universal acclamation of Shake-
speare, the literary hero.
Criticisms, abridgments, altera-
tions, and sources of the author's
works are included. In addition to
the largest volume are also dis-
played the smallest, that being the
"Ellen Terry" edition of 1904.
The British museum has the
largest collection of Shakespearian
rarities at the present time. Pre-
vious to a fire that destroyed it
completely the Birmingham library
in England was the best for trans-
lations, but now the Museum excels
in that also, so that German stu-
dents come to England to study

1928 Opera To Contain Unusual
Singing Features, With
Special Chorus


General sale of tickets for the,
1928 Michigan opera, "Rainbow's
End," will be held this week on
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and

Definite announcement of the
personnel of the various choruses
has not yet been made by E. Mor-
timer Shuter, general director, but
it is expected that this informa-
tion will be forthcoming the first
part of this week. William Browne
'31, who has been hailed as Shut-'
er's latest discovery in opera talent
has been practicing regularly in
his role as leading lady of the new
show. In addition, Daniel H. Buell,
'30 who plays the part of the comic
lead has spent much time drilling
choruses in the many new routines
devised for the 1928 presentation.
One of the outstanding features
of "Rainbow's End" is said to be.
the unusual singing ability of many
of the persons in the cast and
choruses. Moreover, the special
singing chorus of 25, trained by
Theodore Harrison, director of the
Varsity Glee club, will augment the
singing in many scenes.
Costumes for the show are re-
ceiving their finishing touches at
the hands of the experts in the.
employ of Peter March, the De-
troit firm which has succeeded
Lester of Chicago as designers and
outfitters to operas. A final fittingy
will take place sometime this week'
when all little changes that must
be made will be accomplished by

with poor field generalship handi-
capping the Titans.
Cachon Bolsters Team
Insertion of Cachon, regular
quarterback, into the lineup gave
Detroit the necessary scoring
punch in the second half. Two
concerted drives of 80 and 65 yards
netted the Titans a pair of touch-
downs in the third quarter. De-
troit's deceptive attack bewildered
the Titans as Brazil hurled passes
or skirted the ends, Connell outran
the opposing flankmen for long
gains, while Maloney penetrated
the Hilltoppers line for more yard-
Mooney kicked off on the open-
ing play to Connell, who did some
spectacular open field running in

team to cross the final chalk mark
for a touchdown. Starting on their
own 40-yard line Georgetown be-
gan a drive for a score. A pass,;
Scalzi to Provincial, placed the ball
on Detroit's five yard stripe, from
where Hudak went over for the
touchdown in two attempts.
Georgetown Romps Awhile
A few minutes later,,Georgetown
received the ball on Detroit's 32-
yard line when Brazil was forced
to kick from near his own goal.
Scalzi and Barabas advanced the
ball to the 21 yard stripe.. On
fourth down Scalzi passed to
Hudak for another touchdown. De-
troit threatened to score in the
second quarter when Malony re-
covered Leary's fumble on George-
town's 14-yard mark but lost, the
ball on downs.
Between the halves the Univer-
sity of Michigan and Detroit bands
alternated in parading and provid-

entire Michigan football squad
were guests at the game.
' In the second half Detroit un-
covered a powerful offensive that
swept Georgetown aside. Four con-

passed to Goodnow for the touch-
down and Connell kicked goal.
