Participants in Fraud
Known, Council States
Definite proof that the investi-
gation of the Student Council
into its recent elections fraud will
turn into concrete action came
last night with the announce-
ment that several men at the
polling places were known as
those who distributed more than
25 ballots sub rosa to candidates
and other non-council members
during the elections Wednesday.-
Evidence has been substantiated
by partial confession on the part
of a few of those involved, and
their names will be reported to
the Council at itsbnext neeting,
to be held early next week, it was
stated last night.
It was also intimatel that
those confessing parts in she bal-
lot stuffing would be pheed on
"political probation," and in the
case of candidates, would neces-
sarily be withdrawn fr'm the
run-off election to be hdd next,

WASHINGTON, March 18.-(P)- -
Prohibition continued to stir on
capitol hill today in the wake of
quotations attributed to Secretary
Hurley in Chicago last night that
the Republican national convention
in June would adopt a "more lib-
eral" attitude tov/ard the liquor


Taking cognizance of this, the
secretary of war tonight issued the
following statement:
"When I want to speak in quo-
tations, the words will be mine and
not what someone else supposes I
have said. I did not mention pro-
hibition in my address in Chicago
nor did I mention it anywhere else
for publication."

Hurley was quoted as telling an
interviewer, "A great many people
are going to look for the wet can-
didates on the ballots next Novem-
ber" and "eventually I think the
prohibition question will be settledI
on the basis of states' rights."

'31 Football Captain Busse Orchestra
Married Since Entertains Co-ed

Feb. 1931.

Martin Roy Hudson, last year's
Michigan football captain, and
Mary Niffenegger were secretly
married February 14, 1931, at Bowl-
ing Green, Ohio, The Daily learn-
ed yesterday.
Probate Judge B. O. Bistline, of
Bowling Green, told The Daily that
he had issued a license to Martin
Hudson and Mary Niffenegger, and
that the couple had then been mar-
ried by Squire Charles R. Nearing
the day following the J-Hop.
Hudson registered as a student
from McDonald, Pa., while Miss
Niffenegger registered as a student
from Des Moines, Ia., probably to
avoid publicity. Hudson was also
better known as "Roy" to newspa-
permen. He used only his first
name in applying for the license,
probably to avoid publicity.
The engagement of the couple
was announced shortly after the
close of the football season last fall,
but several close friends knew
about the previous marriage cere-

freshman year, he was awarded the

elected captain for this year. Dur-
ing his sophomore and junior years
he was awarded reserve letters in
basketball but left the squad in the
middle of this season.

Tecumseh, Shawnee chief who
organized Indians in the North-
west Territory in the last forlorn
effort to stem the conquest of this
egion by white men, should be ac-

eaders of oppressed peoples, in the
apinion of Dr. Wilbert B. Hinsdale,
custodian of Michigan archaeology
at the University.
In the presidential address last
night at the annual banquet of the
Michigan Academy of Science, Arts
and Letters, which was held in the
Union, Dr. H i n s d a le declared
that although Tecumseh failed to
accomplish his aims, "to him who
contemplates humanity i n i t s
wholeness from Cro-Magnon to
people of today, and discerns the
marks of ability though hampered
'y the shadows of stone-age cul-
ture, there is a serious interest at-
,ached to his career."
Described as Man of 'Energy'.
Dr. Hinsdale described Tecumseh
is a man of great energy and elo-
quence who "fought to vindicate
she powers of life made manifest in
ill things, and to drive a foreign
.lost, of a different race, from the
lomain of his people." Tecumseh,
oelieving *that there still remained
i last opportunity to, defeat the
xhites and drive them back across
,.he Alleghanies, began to gather
he tribes at Tippecanoe. But while
Iecumseh was absent in the south,

As a last resort, Tecumeh agreed
to an alliance with the English and

"His human resources were very
feeble," said Dr. Hinsdale. "He
could make no alliances with any
one whom he could trust. He knew
full well, after casting his lot with
Proctor, that should they be suc-
cessful, eventually, h i s English
friends would turn and rend him."
