Led by the 'Varsity' band playing-
the. Victors, the inaugural programj
of twenty-five Michigan Nights to
be given over the radio during the
current season, was broadcast be-;
tween 7 and 8 o'clock last night
through the courtesy of WJR-WCX,
the Richards Oakland Co.'s "Good,
Wnill Station" of Detroit.
Last night's program, wnich con-
sisted of talks by four ,members of
the University faculty and alternat-
ed musical selections by the band,
markedt the beginning of the fourth
year of University broadcasting of
th so-called Michigan Nights.
Secretary Makes Address
Shirley W. Smith, secretary and
business manager of the University,
in the first speech of the evening,
gave several recollections of that
great figure in Michigan history,
President James B. Angell, who
served as administrator of the Uni-
versity for 38 years. "Among Mich-
igan men and women living today;
there is no stronger and mellower
tradition than that which centers'
around his name," Smith said.
"Although I was unable to come
into personal contact with him very;
much as a student, it was worth
something to see him every day or
so on the campus. He was always
so human. A freshman needs above
all things to sense that the Uni-
versity is human."
Eliot Is Praised
"The advice, the example, the
companionship, are all precious
memories. As was said of his great
contemporary President Eliot, he
had a priceless asset in his temper-
ament,-'A calm temperament ex-
pectant of good.'"
"One day toward the end of th'at
year when I knew he was soon to
leave I said to him, 'Dr. Angell, you
have had a long and wonderfully
successful career as a University
Administrator. Tell me the princi-
ple.' 'All right,' he said, I'll tell you
the secret. It lies in having one
blind eye and one deaf ear.'
Prof. Fielding H. Yost, director of
athletics and football coach, who
has made Michigan teams famous
throughout the country, spoke ex-
tensively of the rapid strides being
made towaxd Michigan's goal of
'Athletics for All.'
' MotorrFuel Discussed
George G. Brown, professor -of
chemical engineering, spoke on the
"Vapor Lock in Motor Cars." Pro-
fessor Brown, who was recently ap-
pointed by the National Gasoline
Association of America's Research
department to develop more and
better uses for natural gasoline,
spoke at length on the different
kinds of gasoline and their effect
in the modern motor cars.
"The Cost of Elections" was the
title of the final address of the
program which was given by Prof.
James K. Pollock, Jr., of the political
science department. Professor Pol-
lock, who has recently returned
from a year's study abroad on the
methods and effect of moneyuses
in elections, gave many interesting
facts concerning the enormous costs
of elections in this country as com-
pared with those held in Germany
and the British Isles.
Alternated with the four talks,
the Varsity band, under the direc-
tion of Nicolas Falcone presented a
series of six Michigan football
songs, including the Victors, Var-
sity, the M Men March, Men of the
Maize and Blue, the Stadium March
end the Yellow and the Blue. Prof.
Waldo .Abbot, of the Rhetoric de-
partment and program manager
for the Michigan Night programs
was again at the microphone as

of nine universities which comprise
the Western debate conference,
and consequently the question
must have more than local inter-
est. This eliminates the auto ban
which was suggested by The Daily
as a topic for debate, as only two
universities are acquainted with
the situation."
He went on to, explain that the
liquor question. which was also
suggested in the editorial, is as
hackeneyed as the St. Lawrence
waterway, or the Boulder dam

nine propositions submitted by,
each university in the conference.'
It was proposed by the Univer-
sity of -Wisconsin. The relative
merits of centralization and de-
centralization in state govern-
ments, which was suggested by the
University of Michigan, was voted
second by the conference.

Improvement in Publication Is
Made by Special Staff
Of Reporters
Copies of the first edition of The
Michigan Weekly for this college
year were mailed out yesterday to
parents and friends of Michigan
students. This will mark the sec-
ond year in which The Weekly has
appeared, taking its staff and ma-
terial largely from The Daily,
since its authorization by the
board in control of publications in
the spring of 1927.
The Weekly, as it is now being
published, represents a decided im-
provement in many ways over the
publication sent out last year. To
begin with, the issue published yes-
terday is the first in which the
copy was rewritten by a specvial
staff of reporters and editors.
All through last year, The Week-
ly was made up from stories clip-
ped from the Daily, the same head-
lines and type used in The Week-
ly. While well enough in its way,
it was rather weak in that it failed
to reach the interest of the parent
When The Weekly staff was or-
ganized this fall , it was with this
need particularly in mind and as
a result each story in The Weekly
is written to cover comprehensive-
ly each news event in such a way
that each story will tell the week's
history of a single incident or
series of incidents in a style under-
standoble to one not familiar with
the campus or its doings.
Campus dramatics, campus com-
ments, and two columns of edi-
torials are written with The Week-
ly's particular reading public re-
ceiving first attention and consid-

CHICHASHA, Okla., Oct. 4.-The
statement that Herbert Hoover has
established a reputation as a hu-
morist by declaring that the seven
and a half year record of Republi-

rare courage in leadership and con-
structive government," was made
tonight by Senator Joe Robinson in
a speech prepared for closing his
three-day campaign in Oklahoma.

script that it was difficult to un-
