Football, The Daily, Law Club
In Gargoyle's Opening Tirade

The old football was primitive, sim-

requires finesse, intelligence, and in-
sight,'and combines all the bad fea-
tures of chess, checkers, ping pong,
and croquet.
That, in brief, sums up Gargoyle's
indictment of the new grid rules, pre-
sented under the title, "Football Sen-
timent and the Restraining Rule," in
the October issue of the campus
funny magazine, which goes on sale

Tibbett Believes
Studying Voice
Abroad Useless
Metropolitan Opera Star
Returns From European
Vacation; To Sing Here
"We have the greatest teachers of
music, both American and foreign,
in this country. It is useless for
Americans to go abroad to study
singing," declared Lawrence Tibbett,
star of the Metropolitan Opera Com-
pany, on his recent return from his
first trip to Europe.
Born in America, Mr. Tibbett, who
will sing in Hill Auditorium Nov. 2
as the second offering of the Choral
Union series, had previously spent all
of his life in America, whence he has
gained world-wide reputation. His
"first real holiday in four years" took
him through Ehgland, Wales, and
European countries by motor car.
Afterward he spent two quiet
months on the French Riviera, where
he studied "Emperor Jones," a new
opera by an American composer,
Louis Gruenberg, to be put on espe-
cially for Mr. Tibbett at the Metro-
politan Opera House early this sea-
"'Emperior Jones' is tremendous
theatre," he declared to numerous
reporters who met him at the ship
on his arrival from Europe. "I am
full of enthusiasm for it."
The musical motion picture has
not been particularly popular in the
past year, in Mr. Tibbett's opinion,
because "no one in the studios rec-
ognizes its nossibilities.

Former Chief Executive
Criticizes Roosevelt For
'Silence On Questions'
NEW YORK, Oct. 1l.-tP)-Former
President Calvin Coolidge, on the
stump tonight for President Hoover,
said "assurance that the pending
Democratic r a i d s on the treasury
would be defeated by a Republican'
victory in November would no doubt
have the effect of reviving all kinds
of business."
After crediting the leadership of
Mr. Hoover with averting a "calam-
ity," which he said would have re-
sulted from Democratic proposals for
bonus payments in greenbacks, Mr.
Coolidge, voiced direct criticism of
Gov. Franklin D. Roosevelt. He spoke
before a Republican rally in Madison
Square Garden.
"An early and timely word from
the Democratic candidate for presi-
dent," said Mr. Coolidge, "that he
would reject the proposal to increase
the national debt by $2,300,000,000 to
pay a bonus would have been a greatj
encouragement to business, reduced
unemployment, and guaranteed the
integrity of the national credit. While
he remained silent economic recovery
was measurably impeded.
"The more this campaign has pro-
gressed," said the Coolidge address as
distributed by the Republican Na-
tional Committee, "the more I am
convinced t h a t he (Mr. Hoover)
should be re-elected."

Dean Edward H. Kraus, of the Col-
lege of Pharmacy, received notice
this morning of his election to hon-
orary membership in the German
Mineralotgical Society. The notice
came from Wilhelm Eitel of Berlin,
and stated that the election was in
recognition of Dean Kraus' outstand-
ing contributions to the science of
mineralogy. This signal honor was
bestowed at a meeting of the society
in Frankfurt, Sept. 23.
Professor Kraus came here from
Syracuse University in 1904. At that
time he was associate professor of
mineralogy. He was made professor
and director of the mineralogical
laboratory in 1908 nd in 1919 be-
came professor of crystallogy and
mineralogy. He has been dean of the
College of Pharmacy since 1923.
Dean Kraus attended Syracuse
University and received his master
of science degree from that school in
1897. He was given his doctorate by
the University of Munich in 1901
and was made doctor of science by
Syracuse University in 1920. He is a
fellow of the Geological Society of
America, a former president of the
Mineralogical Society of America, the
Michigan Academy of Science, and
the American Association of Colleges
of Pharmacy. He is a member of Phi
Kappa Psi, Phi Beta Kappa, Sigma
Xi, Phi Kappa Phi, Phi Delta Kappa,
and Rho Chi.
He is author of several books on
mineralogy and crystallogy and has
written many articles on these sub-
jects for educational journals in the
United States and abroad.
Kunz Talks On
Aged, Modern
Pictures Invisible Worlds;
Discusses 'Self-Discovery
By Experiment'
Representing an ancient, experi--
mental philosophy which has been
practically lost to the worlddand com-
bining with it a consideration of
m o d e r n psychological discoveries,
Fritz Kunz, international lecturer and
observer, yesterday delivered two lec-
tures under the auspices of the Theo-
sophical Society. He spoke in the
afternoon on the topic, "The Invisible
Worlds," and in the evening on
"Self-Discovery by Experiment."
Picturing these invisible worlds as
real, this philosophy, as presented by
Mr. Kunz, starts with the body and
studies man as being an invisible en-
vironment as well as in the visible
one of solids, liquids and gases. This
invisible world engulfs man, sur-
rounds him with strang properties,
and persists even in a stronger form
after death. In the light of the most
logical reasoning based on modern
scientific ideas the invisible worlds,
according to Kunz, are to be con-
ceived' as being made up of radiant

BURLEY, Ida., Oct. 11.--1)-Sen
William E. Borah (Rep., Ida.) in an
address here tonight advocated a
four-point program for economic re-
covery-adjustment of World War
problems, expansion of the currency,
elimination of extravagance in gov-
ernment, and adjustment of private
debts to conform to the change in
money values.
Addressing a meeting arranged by
a local service club, the chairman of
the Senate committee on foreign re-
lations suggested expansion of the
currency enough "to do business and

Senator Borah served notice that
he would present his views without
regard to party platforms or the
presidential campaign in which thus
far he has withheld his support from
President Hoover.
Discussing the major party plat-
forms, he commended both President
Hoover and Gov. Franklin D. Roose-
velt for what he termed their disre-
gard of important parts of Republ-
can and Democratic platforms.
"After paying lip service to these
sterile decarations early in the cam-
paign," he said, "they proceeded to
put them aside. It is the most en-
couraging event in the campaign.
,I am going to discuss the situa-
tion as I see it. I shall not permit
myself to be embarrassed in the least
by party platforms or by the fact
that a political campaign is now in
"There are a number of questions,
local and national, which one might
well discuss. But the great funda-
mental problems, upon which all
others depend, are:
"1. World markets have been des-
troyed and the great problem: how
to restore them. Until we do so, we
cannot hope for a rise in the price of
"2. The momentary systems of the
world have been broken up and de-
moralized and the problem is: how
to restore them, and how to adapt
them to present conditions. Until we
do so, we cannot hope for that con-
fidence which brings prosperity to
"3. The last 25 years have witness-
ed such an increase of waste and ex-
travagance in the government from
the lowest unit to the highest, that
taxes are now literally destructive-

expenditure of public money ap-
proaches a national crime.

forces and the change in m noeauvly
forces and the change in money
values, debts have piled up begin-
ning with the farm and ending with

working with a view to build, to con-

were, for a dead horse."

Lies In Grand Rapids
GRAND RAPIDS, Oct. 1.1.-(A)-
FormerUnited States Senator Wil-
liam Alden Smith, whose quarter of
a century of service in Congress em-
braced both the Spanish-American
and World War periods, died at his
home here this afternoon. He was 73
years old.
Known as "the friendliest man in
Michigan," his ability to call count-
less men in almost every hamlet of
the state by their first names was the
envy of friend and foe alike.
His interest in politics continued
even after his retirement from the
Senate in 1919, after serving two
terms as senator. He had been active
in the Hoover campaign in his home
city until Saturday, when he suffered
a slight heart attack. He was be-
lieved on the road to recovery when
the second and fatal attack came late

Ann Arbor And County Sure
To Go Democratic, Abbott Says

The Literary Digest returns on Ann
Arbor in its nation-wide poll are
significant although not indicative of
the voting trend in the city, accord-
ing to Horatio Abbott, Democratic
national committeeman.
The Digest vote, he said, was drawn
mostly from the Republican strong-
holds on the east side of the city.
However, he declared, the strength
of Governor Roosevelt surprised him
for the vote would ordinarily be 10
to one for the Republican nominee.
Sure of County and City
Mr. Abbott asserted in an inter-
view yesterday that both the city and
the county are sure to go Democratic.
As to the state vote, although Michi-
gan is normally heavily Republican,
he said that there is a chance that
Governor Roosevelt will carry Michi-

state, Abbott sees little chance for
Mr. Comstock, although the guber-
natorial nominee has many friends
in parts of the state, he said, where
Governor Roosevelt is not so popular.
Welcomes Lippmann
Mr. Abbott welcomed the support
of Walter Lippmann for the Demo-
cratic ticket. Lippmann, he said,
"straightened a lot of things out for
a lot of people." He said that Lipp-
mann's lack of appreciation for
Roosevelt's opinions at the start of
the campaign had irritated him. He
pointed out that the Detroit Free
Press had been severely criticized for
even carrying Lippmann's article and
had written a "weak-hearted" editor-
ial in answer to the writer, "Lipp-
mann," Abbott said, "is bigger than
the Free Press nutfit"
