Hopes To Gain Votes By Speech In Detroit Tonight

Denying that he had given permis-
sion to a committee of the Michigan
Socialist Club to operate a radical-
literature stand on public property,
Chief of Police Thomas O'Brien told
the Daily last night that the erection
of stands on public property was for-
bidden by city ordinance, and for
that reason it had been ordered
"Nothing was said to me about op-
erating a stand when I was asked by
a student for permission to sell lit-
erature on the corner of State St. and
N. University," Chief O'Brien said.
"Operating a stand on public prop-
erty is a violation of a city ordinance.
Several days ago, when I told a stu-
dent he could sell newspapers and
pamphlets if he wanted to on those
corners, I did not give hm permission
to set up a stand for at purpose,"
O'Brien said.
Nature Not Considered
The nature of the literature on sale
was notconsidered. The sole grounds
for closing the stand was that it was
a violation of a city ordinance,
O'Brien stated.
The Chief of Police said that he
did not know about the existence of
the stand until it was reported by one
of his officers. When he heard of it
he gave orders for it to be closed up.
The proprietors of the Quarry Drug
Store said that they were willing for
the committee of the Michigan So-
cialist Club to operate a stand at the
side of their place of business pro-
viding it did not conflict with police
Yesterday afternoon when a mem-
ber of the committee went to see
O'Brien to find out why their stand
had been closed, the student asked
why the newspaper stand across the
street were allowed to operate, if
there was a regulation against it.
O'Brien pointed out yesterday that
the newspaper stand at the entrance
to Nickel's Arcade is not on public
property, but stands back against a
column of the arcade, behind the line
which marks the edge of the side-
To Attempt Solution
The committee of the Socialist
Club aniounced today its intention
of finding some solution whereby the
stand may be operated, and have se-
cured the services of Dr. Alway, local
attorney for the American Civil Lib-'
erties Union, who is making an in-
vestigation of the city ordinance con-
cerning newsstands. There is a pos-
sibility that, owing to the unusual
width of the sidewalk on N. Univer-
sity at that corner, there may be
more width space than the city ordi-
nance stipulates, and in that case
there will be room for the stand to
operate without violating city regula-
tions, the committee said.
The Socialist Club has spent close
to $500 on the project, and in case
the stand cannot be re-opened, in-
tends to carry suit for the above
amount, since this expenditure was
incurred as a result of C h i e f
O'Brien's alleged approval of the lit-
erature stand, the committee said. "It
is expected that an affidavit signed
by a witness of the conference with
Chief O'Brien several days ago will
be in the hands of the committee
early next week," John Olson, grad.,
Chairman of the Committee, stated.
"However, our intention is not to re-
cover the money we have spent as
much as it is to get the stand re-
opened," he said.

Events Of Bygone
Days Revealed In
City's Old Homes
Many fascinating tales of events
that happened long ago in Ann Ar-
bor are brought to light by an inves-
tigation of old faculty homes, accord-
ing to an article appearing in this
week's issue of the Michigan Alum-
The old Douglas property, located
at 502 East Huron Street, was the
home of Dr. Silas H. Douglas, a
member of the faculty from 1844 to
1877 as instructor and superintend-
ent of buildings and grounds and
later professor of metallurgy and
chemical technology and director of
the chemical laboratory. Dr. Douglas,
who purchased the property for $500,
built the house in 1848.
Once each year, the good old doc-
tor would hold class in his home. Af-
terwards, an oyster dinner was serv-
Farther down on East Huron street
is another home which has with-
stood the ravishes of time. It is the
home built in 1880 by Dr. William
J. Herdman, professor of nervous dis-
eases and electrotherapeutics from
1875 to 1906.
The old Hall home on the south-
west corner of Hill St. and Washte-
naw Ave, stands today as the center
of one of Ann Arbor's finest residen-
tial districts. Originally, it was the
center of the Hall seventy acre farm,
but as Ann Arbor grew, the land was
divided into lots and many homes
constructed along its rustic paths.

Terms Sciencef
Supplement Of'
True Religion
Prof. Menefee Describes
Qualitative, Quantitative
Possibilities of Approach
Calling science supplementary to
religion and picturing fact as begin-
ning on the basis of faith, Prof. F. N.
Menefee Thursday delivered the first
of a series of three lectures on the
subject "The Religion-Science of the
Future" being sponsored by the Tol-
stoi Legue.
"The deepest roots of religion are
in science," Professor Menefee said.
"We have been looking at the flower
and the foliage. In the future hu-
man relations and the eternal veri-
ties will not be considered less but
rather more. The difference will be
in the angle from which they will be
studied, a quantitive and analytical
rather than qualitative point of
Professor Menefee emphasized the
distinction between the qualitative
and quantitative approach. Religion,
he pointed out, is essentially qualita-
tive. Science starts out qualitatively
and ends quantitatively but not
necessarily at a different destination
from a religion.
The transition now is from faith
to fact but does not involve, accord- '
ing to Menefee, the destruction of
faith. When quantitive thinking has
invaded the field of thought we will
probably be able to prove scientifi-
cally what has been taught from the
standpoint of religion. Fact may thus
reduce necessity for faith in certain
"The summation of all science,"
professor Menefee believes, 'makes
life. If man ever discovers the whole
of science, he will have fulfilled the
injunction to seek the Kingdom of

WASHINGTON, Oct. 21.-(P)-Be-
fore turning westward tonight for the
third time in three weeks of active
political stumping, President Hoover
devoted almost a full working day to'
marshalling the campaign issues and
counter-issues hewill stress tomor-

Although he worked until late last
night and resumed his efforts after
a brief rest, the President prepared
to board his special train tonight

For the first time in many years
the waiting crowds on State street
this afternoon will not see and hear
a victorious Maize-and-Blue Varsity
Band on its after-game parade back
to its headquarters at Morris Hall.
Immediately after the game the
band will board buses at the Stadium
and be rushed with police escort to
Olympic stadium, Detroit, to play at

there. A motorcycle escort will take
the buses through the city and to the
Plymouth road. A Detroit police

This afternoon for the first time.
this year there will be no other band
competing with the 'Fighting Hun-
dred." Illinois' combined units-the
University band and the 1st and 2nd
regimental bands-total more than
300 members and are considered too
large to take out of Champaign. The
Army game at West Point last year
was the only out-of-town trip the In-
dian unit has made in recent years.
Because the Varsity Band will be
the only one on the field this after-
noon, a lengthy series of formations
has been evolved under the direction
of Frank O. Riley, '33E., drum-major,
and Lieut. R. R. Coursey, drillmaster.
In addition to the customary Michi-
gan songs and marches, the band will
play the visitors' march, "Illinois
Loyalty"; the alma mater, "Hail to
the Orange"; and King's stirring
march, "Pride of the Illini." Special
formations have been planned for
the visitors.

Places In Line; Of Day
Possible; Illinois Team
Is Heavily Outweighed
A revamped Michigan lineup will
face Coach Bob Zuppke's fighting I-
lini in the stadium this afternoon.
The loss of Stan Fay has necessitated
three alterations in the Maize-and-
Blue eleven, and closehcoipetition
for assignments in the line has
brought about two changes in the
forward wall.
Coach Harry Kipke has shifted Ted
Petoskey to the fullback position in
order to add power to the running
attack in a bid for their third Big
Ten victory.
About 23,000 people are expected at
the game, which starts at 2 p. in.
Petoskey to Get Chance
Ted Petoskey will get his chance
today against the Illinois line just
as his predecessor, Bill Hewitt, did
last season. Hewitt gained about 150
yards and if Petoskey can come
through with a similar showing,
Michigan's running attack will be
considerably stronger than in pre-
vious games.
Rod Cox, 196-pound end, will take
over the left flank position in Pe-
toskey's absence and John Regeczl
will be at right half, in Fay's former
position. The sophomore fullback
sensation shows every promise of be-
ing a better half than fullback. He is
lanky and shifty and has a lot of
speed and drive when carrying the

sometime this season and said last
night that today's game may easily
prove to be the upset. There is a gen-
eral let-down. among the team mem-
bers that was due to come after the
first three hard contests.
Illinois Outweighed
Michigan will outweigh Illinois 18-
pounds to the man, if the figures on
the team lists are accurate. Illinois
will average 172 pounds while Mich-
igan will average 190. The revamped
backfield weighs 180 while the line
averages 196 1-2. The weight advan-
tage may not count if Zuppke's team
duplicates their play in the first half
of the Northwestern game when they
held the Wildcats to a lone touch-
Coach Zuppke's team stayed at the
Dearborn Inn last night and will not

Holmes Says Farmers Well Off
In Comparison With City Poor

"The farmers, classed with poverty
classes of the city, are fairly well off
today," Professor Roy H. Holmes, of
the sociology department said yester-
day in an interview. "However, put
in the middle class, where they right-
fully belong, they are very badly off."
"The farmer has been suffering
from a depression of his own for 10
or 12 years, since food prices dropped
after the war and the present world-

had to give up tractors and return
to horses. Unpaid taxes and heavy
mortgages rest heavy on his should-
Professor Holmes sees the rural sit-
uation as a new feudalism. The
banks hold the mortgages and, using
foreclosure as a threat, they are able
to dictate to the farmers as overlords.
The farmers, the serfs, live on the
land, work it, and turn over their
