Convocations Committee Engaged
In Seeking Men To Speak
On Spring Series
Taking for his subject "The Rea-
sonableness of Religion," Henry
Pitt VanDusen will address the
third and last convocation of the
fall series at 11 o'clock this morn-
ing in Hill auditorium.
VanDusen is a professor at Union
theological seminary, and during
recent years has been prominently
identified with a movement to
carry a modern religious message
to:students. He is said to be one
of the more modernistic members
of the ministry, and has several
anti-fundamentalist doctrines in
his articles of faith.
At the time of his ordination in
New York several years ago, fun-
damentalist. clergymen rose in op-
position, and newspapers featured
his alleged denial of the virgin
Was "Buchmanist"
At Princeton VanDusen belonged
to a group of insurgents that de-
clined invitations to join clubs,
classifying them as rubbish, and
joined the "Buchmanism" move-
ment that gained headway there
after the war._
Although he later sheared away
from Buchman's anti-sex emotion-
alism when it grew to fantastic
proportions, he was written up in
a book of anonymous character
sketches as a convert of Buchman.
He is identified with "Erd" Harris,
"Sam" Schumacher, and other
young men well-known in the
East for their Christian influence
among preparatory schools and
colleges, all of whom followed
Buchman for a while and-then re-
pudiated the sect when it outgrew
the bounds of reason.
VanDusen is the author of a
widely read book entitled "In
Quest of Life's meaning."
Invite Men For Spring
After tomorrow's convocation no
more will be held until the mend
of March when the spring series
is scheduled to start. Attempts
are now under way to secure Dean
Charles R. Brown, retired dean of
Yale Divinity school, and Hugh
Black, professor of practical theo-
logy at Union theological semi-
nary, for the spring series. Senator]
William E. Borah and Senator Ar-
tiur H. Vandenberg both were
forced to decline invitations be-
cause of the probability of a spe-
cial session of Congress after
March 4.
It is understood that invitations
will also be sent to Rabbi Wise and
Charles G. Dawes, whose names
were mentioned at the last general
meeting of the Student council
convocations committee headed by
Mark Andrews, '29. Senator George
Wharton Pepper, also may be in-
vited to address a spring convoca-
tion, though he declined an invita-
tion to speak this fall saying thatf
it was "time he spoke less and
thought more." He referred to his
recent unsuccessful campaign for
reelection against Senator Vare.

LONDON, Dec. 15.-A prolonged

persistence of the exhaustion from
which he has been suffering.

This was balanced, however, by
the fact that he had obtained some
sleep, which is of great help in such
an illness; the steadiness of the
pulse and the moderation of fever.
The text of the bulletin was:
"His majesty had a quiet day
with some sleep. Though the pulse
remains steady and the fever i'e-
I mains moderate, the exhaustion re-
mains persistent. It has been de-
cided to employ ray therapy a,

Work On Ante-Bellum History
South Wins Prize Offered
By Boston Publishers


Award of a prize of $2,500 for
the best manuscript submitted on
American history has been made
to Prof. Ulrich B. Phillips, of the
American history department of
this university.
Little, Brown & company, (Bos-
ton), publishers, offered the award
in a contest which closed October
1. Professor Phillips has conferred
with the publishers, and in addi-
tion to the $2,500 prize he will re-
ceive royalties on the book which
probably will be off the press by
May 1.
Judges in the contest were
Worthington C. Ford, etlitor of
publications of the Maine Histori-
cal society, James Proswell Adams,
historian of New England, and
Allen Nevins, of the editorial staff
of the New York World and author
of numerous histories.
The book, entitled, "Life and La-
bor in the Old South," is the first
volume of a set not yet completed
which will be known as the "His-
tory of the South." It traces the
settlement of the colonies and the
development of slave plantations,
and pictures the life and experi-
ences of the planters, slaves, and
overseers. The material, concerned
not so much with the law as with
the actual conditions of life, was
drawn from manuscript records.

Showing a complete reversal of
the form displayed in the opening
game of the season with Michigan
State a week ago, Coach George
Veenker's Wolverine cagers rode
rough-shod over Pennsylvania,
1926-27 Eastern Intercollegiate
champions, last night in the field
house to hand the eastern team its
worst defeat of the present trip,
34-21. Approximately 5,000 spec-
tators saw the contest.
It was the third successive beat-
ing absorbed by Penn in as many
nights at the hands of Western
conference aggregations, Indiana
turning the trick Thursday and
Ohio State Friday. The victory
was doubly . significant for the
Wolverines, as it marked their first
win of the 1928-29 season and
avenged the 39-36 loss to the Red
and Blue team at Philadelphia a
year ago.
After a slow start, the invaders
I took the lead early in the first half
largely through the sensational
shooting of Captain Joey Schaaf
who registered no less than four
baskets in this period, most of
them from beyond the foul line.
Michigan gradually pared down
Penn's lead, however, and the east-
erners were leading by a single
point margin, 13-12 as the half
Rose Counts First
Shortly after the game opened
Danny Rose drew first blood by
registering a free throw. Schaaf
dropped in his first basket and Mc-
Coy knotted the count from the
foul line. Chapman next sank a
goal after dribbling through the
Penn defense, but Hartnett scored
a free throw and Schaaf a pair of
baskets, both of them on difficult
shots, to send his team into the
lead that it never relinquished dur-
ing the half.
Rose sank a close-in shot, but
Schaaf retaliated with another
long one to maintain the lead in
Penn's favor, 9-6. Peterson scored
'a free throw. McCoy dropped in
fourth basket of the game on an-
other long shot, and Hartnett in-
creased the lead still further with
a free throw. McCoy dropped in
a long shot and a free throw,
while Orwig counted from under
the basket and from the foul line
to cut the invader's lead to one
point, as the half ended.
The second period saw the Wol-
verines take the lead soon after
the opening whistle, Truskowski
sinking a short one; McCoy broke
-away for another close in shot.
Rose dropped in a free throw and
Chapman and Orwig bagged a
basket each before Peterson made
good on a free throw for Penn's
first point of the half.
Michigan Increases Lead
Michigan increased her lead,
Rose dribbling half the length of
the court to score. Peterson made
another free throw, but Orwig dis-
counted his effort by doing the
same. Chapman looped in another
short one and Rose and Truskow-
ski, registered free throws. Ushka
sank a free throw and Lobley, whd
had replaced Hartnett, connected
on a long one, making the count
Chapman dropped in a free
throw and Orwig added two more,
then Chapman sank another
close in shot. Herbst tallied from
the floor and from the foul line,
while Chapman made a close shot
on a perfect pass from Orwig to
end the scoring and increase the
Wolverines advantage to 34-21.
Chapman's work at center wa
one of the features of the contest;
while Orwig turned in a fine ex-
hibition of floor work but was un-
able to locate the basket during
the first half. Danny Rose did a
good job of advancing the ball
