Rubber Company Man Will Talk
Under Auspices of Business
Administration School.
Cyrus S. Ching, personnel direc-
tor of the United States Rubber
company, will -peak on "A Sound
Industrial and Public Relatins
Policy" under the auspices of the
business administration school at
3 o'clock MVonday afternoon in
room 25 Angell hall.
Ching is a very unusual charac-
ter and is recognized' as probably
the foremost authority on indus-
trial relation operations in the
United States. His present wbr'k
embraces the creation and develop-
ment of industrial policies of all
of the units in the 26 large plants
as well as the many branches and
sales divisions of the rubber com-
He is six feet, seven inches tall.
Started as a conductor on the Bos-
ton street railways and worked his
way through night school, taking a
law course and passing the Massa-
chusetts bar examination. Since
then he has steadily advanced to
the position he now holds.
He has always been interested in
men and their problems and is con-
sequently well fitted for the posi-
tion he is now filling.

Rep. John N. Garner of Texas, Democratic choice for speaker of
the House, brought his annual supply of pecans rvh!n he rettiei wtc

For Michigan Ted Petoskey again
was outstanding for his work at
left end. This sophomore star looks
more and more as if he were des-
tined to become one of the great
flankmen of the Western Confer-
ence before he concludes his foot-
ball days at Michigan. Ivan Wil-
liamson, at right end, played his
usual steady game, although he did
not have a chance to come out in-
to the limelight as much as he has
had in former contests.
Doc Morrison, veteran Wolverine
center, also looked good in the line,
as did Howard Auer, who continued
to play the type of steady game
that has characterized his work
throughout the whole year.
For Michigan State Captain Milt
Gross, Buss, and Vandermeer were
the best of the line, with Monnett
and Eliowitz easily the stars of the
Spartan backfield.
