Stock Sales at Gridiron Banquet
Will Decide Oil Can's
1930 Recipient.
Publicity Seeking Congressmen
First to be Presented
with Lubricator.
Paraphernalia of a stock ex-
change will transform the ball
room of the Union into a trading
mart when, on the night of Sigma
Delta Chi's gridiron banquet, April
9, stock will be bought and sold in
several newly organized corpora-
tions. Each corporation will repre-
sent a faction that is touting a can-
didate for the post of loquacious
lubricator, and the corporation
which sells most stock to the ban-
cueters will see its candidate
awarded. the oil can, which since
1923 has been given annually to the
faculty member who in the judg-
ment of the gridiron banqueters
most deserves recognition as a pub-
licity seeker and hot air artist.
The stock market was selected as
the theme of this razz fest, chair-
man Edward L. Warren, Jr., '30,,
said yesterday, because the recent
crash is stfll of unusual interest in
Ann Arbor, since it affected things
as far removed from business, in
the cloistered quiet pf college, as
students' allowances. Every walk
of life will be represented at the
banquet, and in the fortunes of the
stock market will be found a topic
of interest to all the classes of peo-
ple who will be represented.
.University students, professors, -
editors, politicians, statesmen, bus-
tress men, and publishers will all
rub elbows at the banquet, and
each will be given an opportunity
to get off his chest grievances of!
12 months standing. The gridiron
banquet is a razz fest, at which all
the banqueters are given an op-
fortux1ity to see themselves as oth-
Gridiron banquets originated in
Washington, P. C., where they were
first held by members of the na-;
tionail press club who after having,
reported Congressional speeches for
almost a year, relieved themselves
of their resentment at the loquac-
iousness of some Congressmen by
inviting them all to a banquet and
then razzing them all, and present-
ing an oil can to the most loquac-
ious. The congressmen had to like
it, since they all needed publicity.
Later, the banquets became so well'
known that they were copied by
other press clubs, and have now
come to be an accepted tradition of
the national professional journalis -
tic fraternity, Sigma Delta Chi.
After the razzing at this year's
banquet has reached its conclusion,
the runners who have been in
charge of posting on the black-!
boards the latest quotations on the
stocks of the various quotations,
will determine which stock is lead-
ing, and the corporation which has'
been most successful in its concen-
trated panning of some individual'
will be able to announce the man1
who is to hold the Ann Arbor oil 1
can for the next year.
.Fielding H. Yost, director of the
University's athletic plant, was
awarded the oil can last year on
the strength of his clean speech'
campaign. He refused to make any
predictions yesterday as to who de-
serves the oil can this spring.

Political Science Head Writes
That International Parley
Has Begun Task.
Dean John R. Effinger of the lit-
erary college yesterday received a
letter from Prof. Jesse S. Reeves, of
the political science department,
who is representing the United
States in an international confer-
ence on the codification of interna-
tional law, now being held at the
Professor Reeves said that all the
opening ceremonies have been for-
gotten, and that the conference has
been divided into three sub-com-
mittees for the actual accomplish-
ment of the task before the dele-
gates. The work is very confining,
he says, but because of its technical
nature receives little publicity.
The American delegation is ob-
serving a 30-day period of mourn-
ing for the death of former Chief
JusticerWilliam I'U. Taft, and is ac-
cepting no formal invitations.
French is the most generally used
language at the conference, Pro-
fessor Reeves said. Besides those
to whom it is native, English has
been spoken by delegates of only
one other nation, the Danish.
State Wins Advance in Time of
Hearing on License.
(By Associated Press)
LANSING, March 31.-The state
won what was claimed as a partialj
victory in its controversy with the
Federal Radio commission today
when word was received that the.
date for a hearing on Michiga'kI
application for a wave channel has
been advanced to April 22. The
original schedule was May 15th.
Governor Green revealed that i
the, commission refuses to allot a
wave channel for the proposal State
police radio station, the fight will
be carried into Congress. He inti-
mated that members of the Mich-.
igan delegation in Congress had
expressed a willingness to seek leg-
islation to permit the installation
of the State police station.
The Governor has insisted in
several statements that the May
date for a hearing was too late to
be of benefit because if it resulted
in denial of the State's application,
there would be no time to press the
matter in Congress.
