Michigan Statesman Says Recent Final Assembly This Morning
Democratic Victory Was to Conclude Business
Result of Publicity. of Editorial Body.-


Prof. Preston Slosson Speaks
to Afternoon Assembly
of Dictatorships.
Senator Arthur H. Vandenberg
told 200 assembled members of the
Michigan Press Club at their an-
nual banquet last night in the Un-
ion that the man more responsible
than anyone else for the recent
democratic victory in congressional
elections was Charles Michelson,
of the Democratic Press bureau in
Washington. Senator Vandenberg
used Michelson's case in support of
his contention that the nation to-
day is not in reality in the "hands
of the government, but is primarily
motivated by the press of the Uni-
ted States."
Senator Vandenberg, speaking at
the 12th annual Press Club banquet
which all but concluded the major
portion of the 1930 program, stress-
ed the need for careful judgment
on the part of newspaper men
throughout the nation. He stated
that the impatience of "getting the
news first often creates a snap
judgment which stimulates the
wrong, rather than the right con-
ception of the truths involved."
United Press Head Speaks.
Other speakers on the dinner
program were Fielding H. Yost, di-
rector of athletics, who told a few
unpublished facts concerning the
present football season, and Karl
A. Bickel, president of the United
Press association. Edgar Guest,
Detroit poet, responded to a toast
from Lee A. White, of the Detroit
News, who acted as toastmaster at
the dinner. "No Soup," a dramatic
skit by Gurney Williams, Jr., '31,
and Franklin Reck, of the Ameri-
can Boy magazine, opened the pro-
In the morning session, Prof. Ar-
thur S. Aiton, of the history de-
partment, spoke on revolution in
South America to inaugurate the
day's program. He was followed
by Dr. Theophile Raphael, of the
University, Marlen E. Pew, editor
of "Editor and Publisher" maga-
zine, and William L. Mapel, pro-
fessor of journalism at Washington
and Lee university.
Slosson Gives Lecture.
Dr. Preston Slosson, associate
professor of history at the Univer-
sity, addressed the afternoonias-
sembly on "Dictatorships" in which
he described the governments of
the past and gave a survey of the
present political arena in Europe
and America.
Following Professor Slosson, John
H. Millar, of Chicago told the as-
sembly of the editorial problems of
chain weeklies. He was followed
by Clarence V. Smazel, of the
Michigan Municipal League, who

Gophqloers Ready

Using the card system at the
Minnesota game today for the last
time this year, the cheering section
will attempt three new formations.
"KIPKE," "MINN," and "U of M"
will be formed with the maize and
blue cards.
Students seating in the section
are asked to observe the new in-
structions printed on the backs of
the football tickets as well as on
the stunt cards tacked to the seats
in the stadium. Upon signal from
the cheerleaders, the cards should
be raised above the head,rinstead of
to the level of the eyes as done at
the Purdue and Illinois games. This
will result in a more effective and
colorful formation since the whole
card will be exposed to view.
The section, which will be the
same size as for the Illinois game,
will be made up of rows 23 through
43 in sections 22, 23, and2 4.
Kipke, Veenker, Fisher, Hoyt
Given Places on Education
School Faculty.
Four of Michigan's a t h 1 e t i c
coaches, Harry Kipke, George Veen-
ker, Charles B. Hoyt, and Ray L.
Fisher, were elevated to assistant-
professorships by acti'on, of the
Board of Regents in a meeting held'
last night. They are now on the
faculty of the School of Education,
and will instruct classes in theory
and practice of athletic coaching.
The board appointed Dr. Richard
A. Rossiter, of the astronomy de-
partment, to take charge of thej
Lamont Hussey observatory at Blo-
emfontaine. South Africa. The ob-
servatory station is maintained by
the University.
John G. Reid of Detroit was
awarded the degree of doctor of
dental surgery by the regents. He
had completed his requirements last
June but had not reached the re-
quired age of 21.
The meeting also approved the
new requirements for admission to
the medical school, which include a
minimum of 90 hours of credit in
the literary school.
A number of faculty members
were granted leave of a b s e n c e.
Prominent among them was Jean'
Ian Earhard of the Romance lan-
guages department, who will return
to France to complete the compul-
sory term of military service.

Michigan Sees Minnesota as Threat Rather

in Hard Fight.
Michigan faces its supreme test this afternoon. At 2 o'clock
Minnesota invades the Stadium to do battle with the Wolverines
with the two-fold purpose of avenging a 7-6 defeat of last year and
of knocking Kipke's Varsity out of the race for Big Ten champion-

The Gophers have the strongest team which the Wolves meet
this year and have come to Ann Arbor fighting mad. Two schools
have trampled all over them so far this season, and Coach Kizer'
eleven is out to show the waiting world that they have a real football
team down at Minneapolis. A victory over the undefeated Wolver-
ines will go a long way toward wiping out the memory of the 33-7
