SABAINIEX PLODE U S
MYITHS05 OF H ISTOR HY
Logic of Events Must Be First
Considered in Historical
Research, He Says.
By Norman F. Kraft
Before a capacity crowd held
spellbound by his thorough expos-
ure of the myths of history, Rafael,
Sabatini last night opened the
1931-32 lecture series 'of the Ora-
torical associationin Hill auditor-
Speaking on the subject of "Hisy-
tork i Fiction and fition-in'Ms-
tory," Sabatini opened with an
attack on the popular conception
of printed history as gospel truth.
"Much of what has been written,"
the popular English writer said,
'"'must be discounted on the ground
of human fallability. We have facts
in history of which various inter-
pretations may be taken. These we
classify as mysteries. There are
three types of mysteries: the gen-
eral, the synthetic, and the trans-
"In the work of historical re-
search, we must always consider,
first the logic of events. When an
incident recorded as history does
not fall in logically with the events
preceding and following it, we have
grounds to doubt the veracity of
that recorded incident.
The genuine' mystery, Sabatini
explained, comes about through the
falsification of contemporary rec-
ords. Here there is always the pos-
sibility that time will bring about
the availability of documents there-
Lettermen to Be Union Guests;

LARGE CROWD EXPECTED
Speaker to Review Past Season,
Discuss Probable Changes
in Gridiron Rules.
The annual Union Football Ban-
quet, held as a tribute to t Michi-
gan's Varsity football team, will be
held at 6:15 o'clock next Tuesday
night, Dec. 1, in the ball room of
tfxe Union. At this time, the man-
ager and captain of the 1932 team
will be announced.
Every man who received his let-
ter in football this year will be a
guest of the Union at the banquet.
There will be speeches by Captain
Roy Hudson, Manager John Sau-
chuck, and the captain-and man-
Conklin to Preside.
Hugh R. Conklin, '32E, president
of the Union will extend the wel-
come of the campus and the Union
to members of the team.
A noted authority on football,
whose name has not as yet been
announced, has been obtained as
the principle speaker of the eve-
-ning. He will discuss problems of
football and will give his opinion
as to possible changes in the rules.
He will also review the past foot-
The Union banquet, which has
become a tradition on the camn-
pus, is heldrannually at the close
of -the season. It is primarily an
opportunity for the student body
to express their appreciation to

Reduce Price of Tickets.
Tickets have been reduced in
prik~ f,, pi,,the customary $1.25 to
$1. Six ' or 'more persons buyring
group tickets may reserve a private
table for themselves, Conklin said.
This year there has been much
speculation as to the possibilities
for the captaincy next year.
Because of the unusually success-
ful season and because of the fact
that the price of tickets has been
reduced, the Union expects to have
one of the largest football banquet
crowds in its history. -
Mussolini Most Romantic Figure

"Mussolini," he added with a ges-

The next time Governor Brucker
comes to Ann Arbor on Sunday he
will bring an extra pair of shoes.
Sunday afternoon the governor
decided that he needed. a shoe
shine before he appeared on a pro-
gram in Ypsilanti. His address was
scheduled for 5 o'clock.
Having but one pair -of shoes, he
remained in the guest suite 6f the
Law club, and gave his shoes to
Bert Reynolds, his chaufr.
Reynolds picked up Martin Mol,
'34L. who was the chairman of the
don me. Go ahead."
Reynolds and Mol, bearing the
governor's shoes, proceeded to Yp-
silanti. Again they were thwarted.
In desperation they took the
shoes up to Mol's room in the Law
club. Mol borrowed an old shoe
brush that had been more recently
used as a stove polisher, and a can
of dried up black shoe polish.
He also contributed an old shirt.'
Both started to work on the Gov-
ernor's shoes. With frequent and
liberal application of saliva and
