Students Should Cast Bal-
lots; Reed Fails To Offer



'Avoid Fault)
President Urges Lawyer
To Combat 'Seductive
Dangerous Theories'
Supreme Court Is
Called Impregnabhl
Bar Association Exhorted
To 'Scourge Profaners
From Temple'
WASHINGTON, Oct. 12. - P) -
President Hoover told the Americar
Bar Association tonight that "seduc-
tive but unworkable and disastrous'
theories of government are now be-
-ing offered to the nation, and that
the legal fraternity should "defenc
our system of government against
reckless assaults of designing per-
The chief executive spoke in Con-
stitution Hall before a record gather-
ing of American attorneys, their
ranks augmented by members of the
Supreme Court and by distinguished
legal leaders from other nations. He
was introduced by Chief J u s t i c e
Charles Evans Hughes who extended
to him that greeting of "our per-
sonal ,confidence in his ability and
purpose," which he recalled had been
given by the same organization to
President Wilson in 1914.
Judicial System Responsible
"It is your task," said Mr. Hoover
to the lawyers, "to prove again what
none knows better than you, that the
very citadel of the rights of the poor
against the oppression of rulers and
against the extortions of the rapa-
cious is the judicial system of the
country, and that the impregnable
apex of that system is the Supreme
Court of the United States."
He said it could be "a dangerous
thing" if explanation was not given
the people as to how often in history
"the people's interest have been be-
trayed by false prophets of a millen-
nium promised through seductive but
unworkable, theories of government.
"The menace is doubled," he said,
by the fact that these vain allure-
ments are today being offered to our
harrassed people by men of public
reputation in economics and even by
men in public life. ."
American Rights Secure
The President earlier had told his
legal audience that American citizens
now were more secure in their per-
sons and liberties and in the posses-
sion of their properties than at any
other time or in any other nation in
the history of the world.
"I assert this," he said, "with full
consciousness of many deficiencies of
lawyers and of the law and its exe-
cution. In spite of these, the state-
ment holds."
Asks Bar To Purge Profession
Later, Mr. Hoover called upon the
bar members to "purge your profes-
sion of men inworthy of its trust."
"You occupy a position," he said,
"unlike that of other men, who may
honorably pursue only their private
gain. You are, besides that, quite
specifically officers of government,
sworn members of the courts in
which you practice, and bound by
oath to see not only that justice is
done but that the laws are enforced.
Too many. men have been allowed to
take this oath and then be false to it.
They use the complexities of law and

procedure not to effect justice, but to
defeat it. These men you must
scourge from the temple which they
Speaking briefly of crime problems,
the President reiterated suggestions
that an effort be made to make less
complicated the criminal law, which,
he said, has become "a complex and
often torturous thing." Court proce-
dures likewise, he said, had become
too unwielding.

Henry Ford Provides Trailer
For Railroad Jack's Travels

I On his next trip to Ann Arbor,
"Railroad Jack," Ann Arbor's nation-
ally known memory expert, will be
traveling in a 20-foot residence
trailer hauled by a new Fordson trac-
tor. The new means of conveyance
is the gift of Henry Ford.
Jack, whose permanent home is in
Ann Arbor, travels around the coun-
try during the summer and early fall
pushing his red hand-trucks and an-
swering historical questions in the
instantaneous manner that has made
him one of the most colorful figures
on the Mcihigan campus. Late yes-
terday afternoon he was trudging in-
to Dearborn, pushing his cart before
him, when a car stopped and a tall
man alighted.
"Hello, Jack," said the man. How-
ever, the failing daylight coupled
with Jack's age-weakened eyes made
recognition impossible. The man con-
tinued: "I remember you well do you
know me?"
"Since I've become famous every-
one claims to know me," said Jack,
his eyes twinkling.
"But I do kow you," insisted the
man. "I'm Henry Ford."
"Glad to meet you again Henry.
I'm John D. Rockerfeller," came
back Jack, accustomed to being thus
"But Jack, take a look at me, I am
Henry Ford."
Jack looked more closely. He shook
his head and looked again. "By Gosh,
it is Henry Ford!" he exclaimed.
It turned out that the two men had
met before during the World war.
Dates For Lit.
School Voting
Set By Council
Class elections for the Literary
college will be held on Oct. 19 and
26 and Nov. 1 and 3, in order of sen-
iority, it was decided at the Student
Council meeting last night. Senior
Law elections will be held Friday of
this week.
The date for elections in other col-
leges will be set in the near future,
Joseph Zias, '33, president of the
Council said.
A freshmen smoker wil be held at
the Union at 8 p. m. on Oct. 24 un-
der the auspices of the Council. Box-
ing matches, fencing exhibitions and
other entertaining stunts will feature
the program.
Wilbur Bohnsack, '34, Alistair Mit-
chell, '33, and Richard Norris, '33,
are the members of the committee
in charge of arranging the program.
Due to the success of the pep meet-
ing held before the Northwestern
game, it was the consensus of opin-
ion among the Council members that
another one be held before the
Princeton game, Oct. 28. The date
has been set tentatively and may be
changed in case it conflicts with
homecoming events.
Michigan will be represented at the
Ohio game with at least one, and
possibly two, cheerleaders as the
Council passed a motion granting
enough funds to send one of them to
flhnooma'rhonfhr mohor wil

They talked about various things for
several minutes and then Mr. Ford
asked: "How far have you pushed
that cart?"
"All the way from Ann Arbor," re-
plied Jack.
"Is it hard to push?"
"Plenty!" said the weary Jack.
With that, Mr. Ford took out a
card wrote a few words on it and
instructed Jack to take it to Frank
Campsell, an executive in the Ford
organization, and not leave until he
had a new Fordson tractor.
The next day when Jack applied
to Mr. Campsell he found that Henry
Ford was again there. This time the
motor magnate suggested that he
build Jack a line residence trailer
for the tractor to haul around.
At present, the Ford engineers are
busy designing a 20-foot home on
wheels. It will have every modern
improvement and will weigh about
four tons.
"That's what happens when two
famous men get together," comment-
ed Jack today.

Student Opinion
More than 175 persons are expect-
ed to attend the luncheon for Ray L.
Wilbur, United States Secretary of
the Interior, being given this noon

said yesterday.
Following the luncheon, Wilbur will
address a student forum in the as-
sembly hall on the subject, "The
President and his Policies." Mr. Wil-
bur will probably answer the charges
made by Henry T. Rainey in his
speech here last Thursday, Huss said.
The luncheon, which is to be held
on the terrace of the Union, is to be
attended by many faculty, students,
an townspeople interested in the Re-

affair are still available.
Mr. Wilbur will talk for about a

it is hoped that the meeting may be
thrown open for a general discussion.
Women students are invited to at-
tend the forum.
According to Prof. E. S. Brown of
the political science department, Mr.
Wilbur is well fitted to discuss Presi-
dent Hoover, as a man and a public
figure, for their careers have closely
coincided since they attended Stan-
ford University at the same time.
Dr. Wilbur will address the citi-
zens of Ann Arbor this evening at
the Whitney theatre.

A t t a ck s Tariff Policies

And Farm Board Waste
Defends Garner As
Honest And Able
Ridicules Hoover's Dry
Plank; Calls It "Pol-
itical Imposition"
Placing the blame for the econom-
ic woes of the country on the reac-
tionary policies of isolation and spe-
cial privilege practiced by the Repub-
lican party, Mrs. Nellie Tayloe Ross,
former governor of Wyoming, in an
address last night at the Whitney
theatre, called upon the women of
the country to rectify the mistake
they had made in placing Herbert
Hoover in the White House in 1928.
Mrs. Ross denounced3the Smoot-
Hawley tariff act of 1930, calling it
the immediate cause of the depres-
sion. The Fordney-McCumber bill of
1922 was, itself, much too high, she
said, and the Smoot-Hawley act, dic-
tated by Senator Grundy, following
on the heels of the Wall Street crash,
was nothing short of disastrous.
Assailing the Farm Board, Mrs.
Ross declared that the waste of the
public money by this group was alone
'sufficient to cause the voters of the
country to eject the Republican party
from office. The Democratic party,
she said, had pledged itself to a 25
percent reduction in the expenses of
government by the elimination of the
Hoover boards, bureaus and commis-
sions. "25 percent" she said, "means
that a major operation must be per-
formed on the bureaucractic jugger-
naut now riding over the people of
the country."
Defending Speaker Garner against
the recent assaults on his integrity,
Mrs. Ross declared that it was he
who first suggested the matter of
balancing the budget. During the
first two years of his administration,
she said, Hoover had never broached
the subject to a Republican Congress.
Garner, she asserted, had saved the
country from the President's lavish
Praising the "fearlessness" of the
Democratic prohibition plank, Mrs.
Ross ridiculed the Hoover stand as
an attempt at "repeal without re-
peal." Under the President's plan,
she asserted, the states would be giv-
en the power to regulate "with the
Federal government holding the
strings." The people, she said, were
tired of political imposition by the
national government.
State College
Dean Claims
Police Shadow
EAST LANSING, Oct. 12. -()-
Joseph F. Cox, dean of agriculture at
Michigan State College, said today he
had presented charges to Gov. Bruc-
ker that state police had shadowed
him while he was on a recent vaca-
tion in the upper peninsula.
Dean Cox's charges came as the
grand jury investigation of Michigan
State College and the Michigan State

Institute of Music and Allied Arts
stood temporarily recessed.
Cox quoted Oscar G. Olander, com-
missioner of public safety, as admit-
ting that a member of the state
police had been detailed to "cover"
him, but the commissioner refused. to
say who ordered the action. Olander,
according to Dean Cox, said the in-
vestigation had "revealed nothing
whatever wrong."
