Speech to Students
at Pre-Game Rally
In a speech that came up to the
mark of the best of the famous
"Yost pep talks," Fielding H. Yost,
director of athletics, worked up the
large audience which filled Hill au-

of intense enthusiasm. The speech
of Chester H. Lang, '15, former
baseball manager and director of

with the selections of the Varsity

DEA TH OF EDISON
IS EXPECTED SOON
WEST ORANGE, N. J., Oct. 16 .-
(P)-Every member of his immedi-
ate family and his personal physi-
cian were grouped about Thomas
A. Edison tonight as the end ap-
proached for the snowy-haired cre-
ative genius. .
In the red brick residence in the
shrubbery-studded lewelyn Park
the 84-year-old inventor lay in a
coma. His circulation was showing
signs of the strain, but Dr. Hubert
S. Howe said the quality of his pulse
was better at 8:30 p. m., than it had
been in the morning.
"I am afraid the end is near,"
said Charles Edison, a son, who
added that Dr. Howe's presence was
as "much for mother as for any
emergency" that might arise from
the Ypsilanti torch murders.
The jury took a lite less than
one and a quarter hours to bring
in its decision. "Guilty with len-
iency" was the recommendation
made by foreman Foster. Smith,
speaking for the 11 men and one
woman who deliberated on the fate
of the reputed sweetheart of Fred
The sentence fixed by law for the
offense is one to five years. Judge
George W. Sanple, if he pleases,
may disregard the jury's recom-
mendation. Sentence may be pass-,
ed at 9 o'clock this morning, but it
seems more likely it will be with-'
held until a report is made on the'
cause of Judge Darwin Z. Curtiss'
Possibility of an appeal was fore-
seen because of the attitude of W.
D. rommon, defense attorney,
throughout the trial. Many .f his
objections were overruled, and at
one point he had testimony read
into the record, in the absence of
the. jury, which he had been for-;
bidden to introduce as testimony.
Though most of his objections
were perfunctory, they were of a
nature that an appeal might be
based upon. He has 20 days in
which too file it.
Howard Forwalder, intimate of
the torch murderers, who has been
awaiting sentence on a liquor
charge pending the completion of
the Keller trial, in which he was
a witness, was sentenced yester-
day morning while the jury was
out, to two to four years at Jack-
son prison. .

Grand Jury Returns Ten Counts
Carrying Possible Jail
Term and Fine.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 16.-(/)-
Bishop James Canion, Jr., must
stand trial on charges arising from
his management of thousands of
dollars contributed to his anti-
Smith campaign of 1928.
With Miss Ada L. Burroughs
treasurer of h is "Headquarters
C o m m i t t e e, Anti-Smith Demo-

preme Court today for conspiring

The Grand Jury returned 10
counts carrying a possible maxi-
mum penalty upon conviction of 10
years imprisonment and $50,000
fine for each defendant.
Failure to report contributions of
$65,300 from E. C. Jamesori, New
York capitalist, as required by law,
was the basis of the indictment.
Bond was fixed at $1,000 for each.

Opens With Dedication
YORKTOWN, Va., Oct. 16.-(P)-
The nation's four-day observance
of the battle which made its exist-
ence possible opened here today
with dedication of a monument to
the defeated British commander,
Lord Cornwallis, and the reception
of Marshall Henri Petain of France,
as high watermarks in a day of
historical events and pageantry.
The theme of Mr. Yost's talk was,
the keen rivalry and close friend-
ship of Michigan and Ohio State.
"Because of the 'closeness of the
schools," Mr. Yost said, "there are
nowhere in America, especially in
the Middle West, two teams so
closely allied. Nowhere are there
so many students, alumni, and
friends in the s a m e cheering
The keenest competition between.
the old rivals has been during the
last 10 years," Mr. Yost said, "no
one can forget the dedication game
of '22, or the 17-16 game at Colum-
bus in '26. Tomorrow's game should
be one of the hardest fought games
of the Michigan-Ohio history, for
Ohio has won two out of the last
three games played."
"Wonderful pep meeting" is what
Yost said of the rally in Hill audi-
torium in an interview after the
meeting was over. "It is a great
thing to see such a large group of
students so enthusiastic over to-
morrow's football game," he stated,
"the mingling of the groups lends.
color to the picture of team rival-
ry. Ohio State has nearly as large
a school as Michigan and the loy-
alty that these two good teams in-
spire in the hearts of Michigan and
Ohio men is as helpful and as
worthy as the game its5f.''
