Program to Include Nine Famous
Men and Women; One Of
Finest Ever Offered

By Woody
After months of experience, An-
dy, the University's beloved mo-
torcycle cop, came to grief on the
corner of State street and North
U. avenue yesterday afternoon,
when his gasoline steed did not
heed its master's voice. The speed
demon who had stopped on the
corner, must have been occupied
with an unlicensed student driver
or a passing co-ed, for his motor-
cycle suddenly moved backward in
some mysterious manner and piled
up in the middle of the street.
Now a motorcycle is a mighty
difficult thing to ride, especially
backwards, and those of you who

have never ridden one in that
manner may recall the results ob-
tained when you attempted to ped-
die your bicycle in reverse. Andy
had no forethought of such a dis-
aster. Imagine his embarrass-
ment when he found himself in
this predicament.
The accident occured so quickly
that only his presence of mind
saved him-and did save him. In-
stead of crashing into trees or
automobiles, he deftly manoeuver-
ed his machine into a pile of fer-
tilizer, and joined the pile. Hun-
dreds of onlookers did not grasp
the gravity of the situation for a
full minute, and stood gaping
while Andy lay groaning under the
weight of the motorcycle. At last
however, a group of quick-thinking
students from the Lit school went
to his aid and helped him to re-
gain his throne.
The motor roared, and Andy,
with a wave, hurtled away amidst
the thunderous applause of the
assembled multitude.


Is Elated Over Franklin Roosevelt's
Acceptance of State Leadership
On His Personal Request

Following a short debate, Adel-
phi House of Representatives vo-
ted unanimously last night to sup-
port President C. C. Little's move
for a federal investigation of alleg-
ed prohibition law violations in
fraternity houses on the campus.
The society believes that the uni-j
versity is suffering from unfair
and unfounded criticism from
the general public for supposed
flagrant liquor violations, and that
President Little's move to vindi-'
cate the student body should be
Ienthusiastically supported.
If the student body failed to co-
operate with President Little it

"Whereas, the President is en-
deavoring to clear the university's
character and set at rest these un-
founded rumors by the use of fed-
eral investigation;
"Therefore, be it resolved that
this house goes on record as ap-
proving and welcoming this pro-
posal to clarify the situation and
vindicate the character of the stu-
dent body."
Gerold O. Dykstra, who spent a
year in studying in Russia and who
recently published a book, "A Be-
lated Rebuttal On Russia," gave
an interesting talk before the
group on the Soviet republic.

Tennessee Will Be Visited '
Week-end; Western Trip
To Close Campaign.

"With the largest advance seat
sale in history, indications are that
practically every reserved seat will
be sold out before the first of the
1928-1929 series of lectures offered
by the Oratorical association is
given," stated Carl G. Brandt, fi-
nancial manager of therassocia-
tion, ing an interview yesterday.
"This is due," he said, "to the
unusu'al merit of this year's course
together with the reasonable prices
as offered in former years. The

Mail order applications for tic-
kets will be received this week only
in room 3211 Angell hall, and will
be given preference, while next
week, the remaining reserved seats
will be placed on sale at the box
office. The applications are filed
in the order in which they are re-
ceived and the season tickets will
be sent out sometime next week.-
This bethod is a new one institu-
ted by the Oratorical asociation
this year, and has been made pos-
sible by the scheduling the com-
plete series this far in advance.
Heretofore, this has been impossi-

Nine Numbers
This year's series, which includes
nine men and women, nationally
and internationally famous as
speakers, has alerady attracted na-
tional interest. The general opin-
ion is that the course is one of the
finest of its kind ever offered.
The opening lecture will be given
by Count Felix von Luckner, the
famous "Sea-Devil," on November
1. Count von Luckner is the pos-
sessor of 2'7 decorations from his
own and other countries. His sub-
ject will be "Sea Raids on a
Frinedly Enemy."
The next speaker on this year's
course will be Graham McNamee,
premier radio announcer in Amer-
ica, who will appear here Nov. 14.
McNamee, who has broadcast
everything from the Dempsey-
Tunney fights, the Lindbergh cele-
bration, and intersectional football
games, to President Coolidge's en-
trance to the White House, will
speak on "Telling the World.".
Zelner, famoup protean charac-
terist, will be the third number,
appearing here on Dec. 10. He
will speak on "Flashes from Life
and Literature," with characteriza-
tions of "Socrates," Benedict Ar-
nold," "Moses," "John Brown,"
"Faust," and others. Special
lighting arrangements and scenic
effects wi1 add to the beauty of
the program.'
SRice to Appear
Phidelah ice, head of the Bos-
ton school which bears his name,
and perhaps the leading dramatic
interpretei of today will appear
next on the Oratorical association
program, appearing here January
10, to give an interpretation.
Stephan Leacock, often called
the "Mark Twain of Canada," pro-
fessor of political science at Mc-
Gill university, will speak on
"Frenzied Fiction," February 12,
and on February 27, Homer-Gau-
dens,, a recognized authority on
American and international art
and art themes, will speak on
"Augustus Saint-Gaudens."
Madame Sun Yat-Sen, the out-
standing woman of China and
widow of the late President Sun
Yat-Sen, will speak here March
19, on "My Country."
Richard Halliburton, globe-trot-
ter extraordinary, who has gained1
fame by such feats as hitch-hiking
around the world, swimming the
Hellespont and-the Panama Canal,
climbing Mt. Olympus in winter,
and photographing the Gibralter
fortications in defiance of British
officials, will give an address April

Bird-Hunting Expedition
To Mt. McKinley


"Those who go to Alaska to see
Mt. McKinley," said Dr. Joseph S
Dixon in his lecture before a large
audience in the Natural Science
auditorium yesterday afternoon,
J"will find it a harder proposition
than they may at first imagine.
Mt. McKinleyi is nearly always sur-
rounded by a curtain of clouds
that, unlike our modern young la-
dies, leave something to the imag-
ination; but a properly supplied
exploration party will find above
the timberline ample wild life to
make this difficult trip worth-
In his lecture, which was lilus-
trated by many interesting lantern
slides, Dr. Dixon described the dif-
ferent species of birds and mam-
mals to be found in this region.
The primary object of the expedi-
tion made in 1926, he said, was to
discover if possible, the nesting
place of the sdrf bird, a mystery
that had up to that time baffled
natural scientists.
Dr. Dixon's party of twelve were
stranded in Alaska for nearly a
year when their ship was caught;
in an ice jam, and the expedition
faced many hardships during the
long Alaskan winter. Their food
supply became low and the men
were forced to subsist on the wild
life found in that region.
"Our clothing had to be replen-a
ished from time to time," Dr. Nixon
said, "and I became the official
dressmaker. We found a great

our necks warm, but I must admit
that when I ran across the live
specimen I sometimes became
warm around the neck and cold in

Discussing the character of Mt.
McKinley itself, Dr.. Dixon said
that climbing above the timberline1
of Mt. McKinley doesnot indicate
great altitude, for there are 17,000

Three-Day Convention Announced
For Interscholastic Press


The dates of October 18, 19 and
20 for the meeting in Ann Arbor
of the Michigan Interscholastic
Press Association, and other details
of the coming convention were an-
nounced yesterday by Prof. J. L.
Brumm, head of the Department
of Journalism, following a meeting
yesterday of Sigma Delta Chi, Na-
tional professional journalistic fra-
ternity, and members of the Journ-
alism faculty. .
Registration of the members of
the association, who include the
editors and business staffs of vari-
ous H i g h school publications
throughout the state, will begin on
Thursday afternoon, October 18.
Late in the afternoon an excursion
to include various points of inter-
est on the campus will be made.
The regular programs will be
carried through Friday, followed by
a banquet in the evening. The pro-
grams will end Saturday noon and
the delegates at the convention
will be the guests of the Athletic
association to the Michigan-Ohio .
State Reserves' game in the Mich-
igan stadium Saturday afternoon.;
The time of the meeting of- the
conference was changed from late
spring to early fall, this year, in
compliance with a resolution pass-
ed at the convention last spring.;
It was felt that the earlier confer-
ence would enable the school staffs
to make use of whatever inspira-
tion and instruction such a gath-;
ering might afford. .
Due to the fact that the new
staffs will hardly be under way in;
the high schools at the time of the
meeting, the annual publication,
contest, in which publications sum-
mitted by the various schools are,
judged for excellence, will be de-~
layed until spring.
At their meeting held . Monday
night, the city council of Ann Ar-
bor voted the purchase of 18 auto-
matic vote-recording machines,
which will cost $25,056.90. The ma- I
chines will be installed In time ror

Adoption of the plan came after

of its expensiveness. The vote was1

WASHINGTON, Oct. 2-Revising

ver today mapped out a new pro.
gram which will see him in actior

election day, November 6.

nominee will journey to Elizabeth-
ton, Tenn., to speak in the south-
ern mountain town on Saturday

upon Boston where he will speak
in Mechanics Hall on October 15.
He will close his drive in the easi
the next week with a speech i
the home town of his Democratic
opponent, Gov. Alfred E. Smith
The date for this speech in Madi-
son Square Garden was change
to October 22, because of the con-
fiict of his previous speaking date,
October 13, with election registra-
tion in New York City.
To Turn Westward
Later in that week he again will
turn westward to journey across
the continent to vote at his home
in Palo Alto, Cal., stopping enroute
to make a special speech in the
middle-west. His final stroke of
the campaign° will be made in a
radio address from his home on
the -night of November 5.
Although he was late in arising
at his personal headquarters today,
the candidate cleaned up a number
of campaign details at his home
before turning to the daily rounds
of conferences at his headquarters.
Among his callers was E. S. Yoa-
kum, of New York, a life-long
Democrat, and a prominent - rail-
road construction man. Yoakum,
who in recent years has made a
study of the farm problem, said
after his conference with the nom-
inee that the farm issue was the
supreme one of the campaign.
Declaring that farmproducts
were selling below the cost of pro-
duction, Yoakum declared that
"the farmers are tired of tal and
demand action." They are tired of
chasing rainbows and wantbsome-
thing practical that can be put
into effect-an efficient marketing
system that will enable them to!
get a better price for what they
have to sell," he added:
Asks for Declaration
"I have been waiting and hoping
for some clear outstanding decla-
ration ..from Gov. Smith for a
sound, workable farm policy which
would enable me to support my
own party on this issue," he con-
"It has not come. His western
speeches disclosed the fact that he
is supporting the principles of the
McNary-Haugen bill. He does not
seem to be able yet to swallow the
equalization fee, but the fee and
the bill are inseparable. Congress-
man Haugen has declared that it
is the all essential feature and the
bill would be an empty shell with-
out it."
"In his support of this measure
and its fallacies I cannot follow
Gov. Smith," he declared.

state department to receive from
