State Rejects Detroit
Contest; Governor
Hits Michigan.
Declines to Go Before
Board Again After
'Cold' Greeting.
(By Associard Press
EAST LANSING, Nov. 6.-Michi-
gan State college officials today
turned down the proposal of Gov.
Fred W. Green that their football
team joust for charity in its annual
battle with the University of De-
The dec2sion brought foth the
fact that the governor did not ap-
prove the action of the Board in
Control of Athletics of the Univer-
sity of Michigan in turning thumbs
down on the U. of D.-Michigan post-
season game while at the same time
offering to give its rezeipts from
the Chicago game, a "natural" of
long years standing, to the unem-
ployed. University of Chicago also
has offered to turn over part of its
receipts to the cause.
Informed of Action.
"At least I have been informed of
their action," the governor said of
State's decision. He said he never
had received any official notice from
University officials that they .had
turned diown a proposal for a post-
season game. The statement issued
to the press by the Michigan board
last week explained that the Uni,
versity could not sanction a post-
season game because it was a mem-
ber of the Western conference,+
which allows football games on only
eight days during the fall, and al-
lows none after the Saturday before
The Conference already had re-
fused Northwestern university's re-
quest that its game with Notre
Dame be transferred to Soldier's
Field in Chicago on the grounds,
that other requests to set aside
rules probably would follow such
favorable action.
Gets Cold Reception.
Digressing from the decision of
Michigan State authorities the gov-~
ernor said he would never agaifn go
before the Wolverine athletic board
in view of "my reception Saturday."
"When I walked into that meet-
ing it was so cold that flies would
have dropped off the wall and you
canl quote me as saying so," the
governor said.'
State College athletic council and
the faculty today decided that the
DetrolIt game be played as original-
ly scheduled on November 22.

A large crowd gathered at the shaft of the No. 6 mine of the Sunday Creek Coal company at Millfield,
Ohio, after a terrific explosion there Wednesday night, and pI cc regulation became necessary. The blast was
followed by a fire. Of the 79 men who were killed by the explosion, seven were officers of the company.

MILL TIELD, O., Nov. 6.-The in-
'abitants of this little mining vil-
age, who were spared in the ex-
Alosion at the Sunday Creek Coal
cmpany's No. 6 mine, resumed
their normal ways tonight although
:till stupified by yesterday's disas-
ter. The explosion killed 79 per-
sons, including seven officials of
the Sunday Creek company, and
injured 20 others who are in hos-
pitals. Some of the injured are ex-
pected to die.
There was a possibility, officials
said, that other bodies were still in
the mine and might never be re-
covered. It was feared several,
others may have blown to pieces
by the explosion in the shaft or
buried by falling walls and ceilings.
To Investigate Tunnel.
State and federal investigations
were under way but actual search
of the ruined "West 8" tunnel for
the scene and cause of the explo-
sion will not be undertaken until
tomorrow. J. J. Forbes, director of
the United States Bureau of Mines
at Pittsburgh, will be in charge. He
will be assisted by W. E. Smith,
chief of the Ohio Bureau of Mines.
Rescue work continued through-
out last night and the last of the
79 bodies had been removed before
noon today.
The bodies of 70 dead miners lay
in the company's store here until

Districts Are uut
Farmer-Labor Members of Both Houses May
Wield Balance of Power; Chairmen
Each Claim to Have Control
(B yAssocated Press)
Final returns for the Senate in Tuesday's elections gave the
Republicans a plurality of one and probable control of the organiza-
tio n.
Democrats and Republicans were deadlocked in the nip and tuck
battle for the House. With two districts still doubtful, each had 216
members with 218 necessary for a majority.
Representative Vestal, Indiana, Republican whip, was leading
by three votes in one of these doubtful districts and Representative
Yates, Republican member-at-large from Illinois, was just ahead of
a Democrat in the other.
Line-up Close.
It was still possible for an even division which would leave the
balance of power in the House with the lone Farmer-Labor member,
Kvale, of Minnesota.



More than 300 alumni of the
University from all parts of the;
country will meet at the Hotel
Sumnerset in Boston tonight to at-
tend the national Michigan alumni
dinner held in honor of the Var-

Harvard Saturday, at Soldier's
field, Cambridge.
Following the dinner such cele- I

chusetts, Justice Robert Thompson,
associate justice of the supremel
court of New York state, and Wil-

sports writer, will speak to the

The support given the Wol-
verines proved that the real,
fighting Michigan spirit is as
much alive today as at any time
in the history of the University.
No one can now say that the
students of the present genera-
tion can not keep afire the
Michigan traditions.
But, even with its loyalty so
strongly expressed the studeit
body should not let up in it
support. The boys who wear the
Maize and Blue, who battle for
the honor of these colors in
athletic contests should be sup-
ported to the full degree what-
ever the circumstances. Win or
lose, so long as they represent
Michigan they should have stu-
dent support.
When the Wolverines return
from Cambridge Sunday after-
noon an equaly spirited ovation
should be given them. Sacri-
fice a few minutes for the glory
of Michigan; the football men
have given hours of their time.

ment of speech, will open its win-
ter season Thursday night, Nov. 13,
with the presentation of "Rollo's
Wild Oat" in the Lydia Mendel-
ssohn theatre. Performances will
be given on Friday and Saturday
"Rollo's Wild Oat," written by
Clare Kummer, is "an uproarious
farcical comedy," according to a
statement made by Valentine B.
Windt, director of Play Production,
who yesterday announced the first
attraction on the department's
schedule. The play is the story of
a young man, recently come into
money, who has theatrical ambi-
tions to present "Hamlet" in a new
way, but must combat the practi-
cal ideas of his wealthy grand-
father, Windt explained.
This comedy, with 12 persons in
the cast, was first presented at the
Punch and Judy theatre, New York
city, a few years ago and achieved
success. Roland Young appeared
in the original company as Rollo
Webster. He has also been starred
in "The Beggar on Horseback" and
the picture, "Madam Satan." Others
included in the original cast were
Lotus Robb, J. M. Kerrigan, and
Marjorie Kummer.

playwright of much note. She is

The line-up ibn the Senate also
was so close that it was entirely
possible that the lone Farmer-Labor
member, Shipstead, of Minnesota,
might hold the decisions on organ-
ization there.
Re-election of Senator Schall, Re-
publican, Minnesota, and the defeat
of Senator Robinson, Republican in
Kentucky by M. M. Logan, Demo-
erat, ended the Senate contest. The
make-up of the next Senate stands:
Republicans, 48; Democrats, 47;
Farmer-Labor, 1.
This is the same division of par-
ties as prevailed in 1926, and then
Senator Shipstead voted with the
Republicans who 'retained control.
Leaders Claim House.
Leaders of both parties continu-
ed to claim the House as final re-
turns constantly kept shifting the
standing. Democrats neared their
goal by recapturing the five dis-
tricts in Kentucky which they lost
in the Hoover landslide and pick-
ing up a new one, that represented
by Mrs. Langley, Republican. She
was the only one of the women
candidates to go to defeat.
