The first formal ball ever spon-

Breakfast was served for the
dancers after 12:15 o'clock in the
taproom of the Union and the Pen-

The grand march, begun at 11
o'clock, was lead by George Nichols,
'32, chairman of the dance commit-
tee of the Union under whose direc-
tion the plans for the ball were
carried out, and Miss Harriet Kyson,
'34, of Maplewood, N. J.
This dance was another feature
in the greatest social year of the
Union, it was stated by Albert F.
Donohue, '31, president o the Un-
ion. Attendance records for last
year and for 1928, the banner year
of the Union dances, have been re-
peate1ly broken this year, he said.
"The success of the Union form-

TO WRITE REPORT
Commission Members to Prepare
Statements on Remedies
for Dry Laws.
WOODCOCK MAY TESTIFY
Prohibition Director Summoned
to Washington From
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 7.-Presi-
dent Hoover's law enforcement
commission had arrived today At a
definite formula for writing its
prohibition report, and with nearly
a dozen definite recommendations
before it found the end of its task
at least in sight.
Virtually every member of the
commission has prepared in writ-,
ten form just what he, or she,
thinks should be done about the
dry law. With these views before
the group, and with an immense
volume of impartial prohibition
material available as background,
the members are now joining the
parts into a definite whole.
Report Not Written.
The actual writing of the final
formal report to President Hoover
and to Congress was described at
commission headquarters today as
not yet begun. It was assured,
however, that progress has been
made in bringing the 11 minds into
at least partial unanimity on some
points, but with a final showdown
in the offing.
Chairman Wickersham said, just
before leaving for Wilmington,
Del., late this afternoon, he could
not forecast the date When the re-
port can be laid upon President'
Hoover's desk. At the beginning of
the commission's dry law delibera-
tion weeks ago he said he hoped
for a report to Congress "early in
September." The ri e x t session
opens only three weeks hence.
Will Decide Platform.
One commission member has said,
half jocularly, that the report may
consist of 11 different reports, but
from other sources has come the
statement that the entire group
may agree upon one platform and
not even a majority and minority
report be made necessary.
TO GIVE PROGRAM
Japanese Songs, Legends, Play
Will be Presented.
Mr. and Mrs. Michtaro Ongawa
will appear at 8:30 o'clock tonight
in the Lydia Mendelssohn theatre
in a program consisting of Japanese
songs and legends, and one com-
plete Japanese play in English.
The Ongawa players have appear-
ed in many of the prominent thea-
tres throughout the country and at
several of the leading colleges and
universitiles. They are probably the
only company in the world giving
Japanese plays in English.

(By Associated Press)
GREENVILLE, Ga., Nov. 7.-Gov.
Franklin D. Roosevelt has some-
thing more than cheers and hand-
clasps in store for him on his forth-
coming visit to the country in
which he waged the major portion
of his successful fight to regainj
health. The added tribute will be'
a Roosevelt-for-President club.
W. E. Irwin, state legislator-elect,
said today that Roosevelt admirers
expect to include every voter in
Meriwether county in the formalj
organization of a Roosevelt-for-
President club at the court house
here within a week or so.
Irwin said one membership list
distributed for the club already
contained 500 names and that an-
other list at the office of the coun-
ty ordinary had been signed by vir-
tually every voter in Greenville.
The entire county has followed
with keen interest the impressive
Roosevelt triumph in his campaign
for re-election. Wednesday at Warm
Springs a joyous crowd of patients,
many of whom have umproved so
much that they, like Mr. Roosevelt,
can drive their own cars, held an
automobile parade. Sleeping re-
strictions prevented a celebration
Tuesday night, but swimming in the
warm waters of the community's
pools, an important part of the
treatment, was cut short the fol-
lowi'ng day for a demonstration.

(By Associated Press)
OAKLAND, Calif., Nov. 7.-With
the dispatch of modern racketeer-
ing and some of the flare of the
old west, a band of outlaws held up
a Southern Pacific passenger train
near Noble today and escaped with
a loot estimated at $60,000 or more.
Passengers were not molested'
but werethrown into a panic when
a transformer on an adjoining
electric line blew out. Eye witness-
es agreed but one shot was fired by
the six or seven armed and masked
men. The escape was made in a
stolen motor car.
Authorities believed two men
boarded the train at Berkley as
Near Noble, seven miles from
here, an armed, masked man, who
had climed across coaches and ten-
der, jumped into the locomotive
cab, and in a thin, high calm voice
commanded the engineer and fire-
man to stop the engine.
Methodically the robbers entered
the baggage car, held up John Mc-
Clintock, baggageman, and took an
undetermined number of bags of
mail, including approximately $y5,-
000 consigned by the federal re-
serve bank in San Francisco to the
American Trust company bank at
Pittsburgh to be used in cashing
payroll checks for the Columbia

them Ruth Hanna McCormick, but
its chairman, Senator Nye said to-
day he had seen enough to con-

In this connection he mentioned
Memphis, Tenn., as the "Philadel-
phia of the south." He said the
Democrats had a machine, perfect
in its mechanism, and that the Re-
publicans apparently existed large-
ly as a patronage organization.
Nye added voting in Memphis was
apparently "by custom" and that
evidence was found in many in-
stances of an utter disregard of,

He said he might propose legis-
lation at the next session to check
expenditure and eliminate corrup-
tion and added that a constitu-
tional amendment for this pur-
pose might be necessary.
The committee still has a num-
ber of odds and ends to be cleaned
up and several hearings are sched-
uled. Senator Heflin. of Alabama,I

morrow to reiterate his request for

Injuries Worry Eastern
By JOE RUSSELL
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 7-With the slogan "Beat Harvard"
on their lips, a large and determined band of Michigan rooters will
swoop down on the Crimson stadium this afternoon to see their
undefeated gridiron machine uphold the traditions of the West
against the old guard of football as personified by the Harvard eleven.
In the five games which the Wolverines and the Crimson have
played, the Cambridge squad has trotted off the field with the laurels
four times, but indications are that Michigan will make it four out
of six after today. After a disheartening 7-2 beating at the hands
of Dartmouth two weeks ago, and an even more discouraging 13-13
tie against William and Mary last week, morale on the Crimson
campus is at a decidedly low ebb, and predictions are few that the
home team will be able to hold the invaders to even a tie game.
On the other hand, Michigan is entering the game with a string
of unbroken wins over Purdue, Ohio State, and Illinois, a record
which stamps the Kipkemen as one of the strongest aggregations
