State Democratic FightI

Former First Lady Mourns For Coolidge

LANSING, Jan. 9.--(P-Prominent
Democrats were appointed to import-
ant state posts by Governor Comstock
He named ldmund C. Shields,
Lnsing attorney and long a power
in the party, to the Board of Regents
of the University of Michigan, suc-
ceeding Lucius L. Hubbard, resigned.
W. Alfred Debo, of Detroit, chairman,
of the Democratic state central com-
mnittee, was appointed commissioner
of pardon and paroles, replacing Ray
0. Brundage, of Kalamazoo.
Shields becomes the only Democrat
on the University governing board.
In naming him Governor Comstock
paid off an old debt. Years ago when
Comstock, uder former Gov. Wood-
bridge N. Ferris, was made a member
of the Board of Regents, Shields
stepped aside to clear the way for
Comstock's appointment. The new re-
gent is a University graduate.
Debo carried much of the burden
of the successful state Democratic
campaign. Brundage was appointed
less than two years ago by former
Governor Brucker. The parole com-
missionership carries a salary of $5,-
000. For the time being Debo may
continue as head of the central com-
mittee, headquarters having been
opened in Lansing. ',
Ruthven Accounts For
hubbard's Resignation
President Alexander G. Ruthven
yesterday issued the following state-
ment in regard to the resignation of
Lucius L. Hubbard as regent of the
"Dr. Lucius L. Hubbard, whose res-
ignation as a regent of the University
of Michigan has just been an-
nounced, has been a member of the
Board of Regents since 1911. His col-
leagues and the officers of the Uni-
versity have heard of his recignation
with real regret, for the service
which Regent Hubbard has rendered
to the institution during the 22 years
of his term of office has been great,
and personally he has been a delight-
ful associate. Regent Hubbard was
trained as a geologist and a miner-
alogist and received the degree of!
Ph.D. at Bonn in those subjects as a
young man; he was also State Geol-
ogist from 1893 to 1899, and has been
largely concerned with geology and
with mining throughout his active
career. This has not prevented him,
however, from cultivating literary
and historical interests which have
gained him recognition in those
fields. His collections of Robinson
Crusoe and Gulliver's Travels, pre-
sented by him to the University, are
remarkably complete and he has
written extensively on the bibliog-
raphy of these two famous works. Of
late years Dr. Hubbard has been.
studying the history of Columbus'
voyages to America. It is these in-
terests outside the ordinary range. of
his profession which make Regent
Hubbard so interesting to talk with
and so charming a companion.
"As a regent, Dr. Hubbard was the
member of the Board who could al-
ways be counted upon to undertake
importat studies in which accuracy
was a cif cnsideration. For years
he has been relied upon to insist
upon absolute accuracy in the min-
utes of the Board. It was he who was
selected by his colleagues to codify]
the by-laws of the University in 1923
when they were so sadly in need of
revision. He also made the exceed-
ingly useful c-mpilation of state
laws, constitutional provisions, and
legal decisions affecting the Univer-
sity which was published before his
edition of the by-laws.
"There is so much that Regent
Hubbard has done for the University
of Michigan, and he has made him-
self so definitely a part of the Uni-
versity community that I hope, and
his many friends here will join me,
that his retirement does not mean
that we shall not frequently see him

on the campus."

Succumbs To
Heart Attack
Paul Dickey, Member Of
Yost's 'Point-A-Minute'
Team, Taken By Death
Was Important In
Theatrical Circles
Athletic Director Pays Him
Tribute As Great Leader
And A Fine Man
NEW YORK, Jan. 9.-(P)-Paul
Dickey, 60 years old, an important
figure in the theatre and the films
since the turn of the century, died
suddenly yesterday at his room in a
club from a heart ailment for which
he had been .under treatment.
Mr. Dickey, whose home was in
Beverly Hills, Calif., was a play-
wright, actor, stage director, and
scenario writer. He staged the mu-
sical comedy "Rose Marie" and col-
laborated with Charles Goddard and
Mann Page on plays in which France
Larrimore and Elsie Janis appeared.
They included "The Misleading
Lady," "The Back-Slapper," "Miss
information," and "The Broken
As an actor he appeared with Rob-
ert Edeson in "Strong Hert" and
with Henrietta Crossman in "Sham."
He was regarded as an expert in
"doctoring" plays, and many success-
ful productions benefited by the re-
vision he made.
He and his wife, the former Inez
Dickey, of the stage, were saparated
in 1927. She now lives in Phila-
Mr. Dickey was born in Chicago
and attended the University of Mich-
igan, where he played halfback on
the famous "point-a-minute" foot-
ball teams of 1903 and 1904.;
Paul Dickey was characterized last
night by Fielding H. Yost, director
of intercollegiate athletics and oa W
of the great "point*a-mIniite" tafns
of the early Twentieth Oentury, as "a
great man and a fine football
player." Though he was not a reg-
ular, he played much of his two years
on the squad, Professor Yost said.
His chief interest, on the campus
aside from football was the avoa-
tion which later became his life-
work, the stage. He was engaged in
campus dramatics, wrote a number
of plays, and was a prominent mem-
ber of Comedy Club. When the cin-
ema came into its own he worked for
sone time in "bit" parts which re-
quired considerable athletic stamina
and ability, and was chosen most fre-
quently for scenes where he fell

Judge OrdersI
Of Sanity Case
Richards, Charged With
Fraudulent Ticket Sale,
Awaits Hearing
Had Served Time
On Bigamy Count
Michigan, Minnesota State
Maintenance In Doubt;
Trial Saturday
To decide whether the State of
Michigan or the State of Minnesota
shall be saddled with the burden of
W. K. Richards' upkeep in an insane
asylum, Judge George W. Sample
yesterday afternoon ordered a sec-
end postponement in a sanity hear-
ing in Circuit Court. The postponed
hearing will take place Saturday
Richards, 24-year-old Mankato,
Minn., resident, is in County Jail
pending decision on his case. War-
rants sworn out by respresentatives
of the Detroit Air Charter Service
charge him with attempt to defraud
that company out of money due it
for airplane rides allegedly sold to
University of Michigan students Dec.
16. Many students bought 'tickets
from Richards, who organized him-
self as the "Michigan Southern Air-
ways" and contracted with students
for. transportation to their homes,
chartering planes of the Detroit firm
for the trips.
Dean Aids Investigators
When students jammed a State
Street restaurant Dec. 16 demanding
their tickets Richards had disap-
peared. He was arrested the follow-
ing day and an investigation is being
conducted -by police and Prosecutor
Albert J. Rapp, assisted by Dean of
Men Joseph A. Bursley, acting in an
advisory capacity.
Richards' attorney, Robert Cav-
anaugh, told Judge Sample that his
cliet, had diseharged -him la-st -eer
without paying1him for his services.
At Cavanaugh's request the judge
declined to appoint another counsel.
Mr. Rapp told the court that Rich-
ards had previously served time in
Minnesota for bigamy and that in
1926 he was declared mentally in-
competent and a guardian appointed
for him. On this account the prose-
cutor and Judge Sample were agreed
that if the state of Minnesota agrees
to care for Richards, they will seek
to extradite him to that state's offi-
cers. Otherwise commitment to the
Michigan Reformatory at Ionia is
the state's only recourse, provided
Richards is adjudged mentally in-
competent in this state.
Mother in Court
Richards' mother, Mrs. David
Richards, appeared in court yester-
day with her son and remained with
him throughout the hearing, show-
ing visible traces of emotion during
the proceedings. - The court, the
prosecutor, the attorney for the de-
fehse, and Dean' Bursley will talk
with her before the postponed hear-
ing Saturday to determine whether
she can pay money allegedly owed by
her son to the air charter service, to
a gasoline station the proprietor of
which charges Richards with em-
bezzling, and to various Ann Arbor
merchants and other organizations
which 'have accounts outstanding
against Richards.


'Love On The Run' Is
Of Play Selected
1933 Production


"Love on the Run," a fast-moving
revue of student lfie by Marian Gid-
dings, '34, will be the 1933 Junior
Girls Play to be given March 22
through March 25, it was announced
last night by Frances Manchester,
'34. general chairman.
What plot there is to the play, Miss
Manchester said, is merely a thread
to connect the various skits. The cen-
tral idea of the production is a sa-
tire on the ideas of the average stu-
dents of foreign countries.
The story deals with two groups of
students on a European tour with
emphasis on scenery, -costuming,
music and dancing. These are things
that student wonmen can do capably,;
Miss Manchester pointed out, and
these are the points that will be,
stressed in the show rather than dif-
ficult and amateurishly performed
musical comedy.
The cast for the play will be
chosen this week, according to Rus-
sell McCracken, director. There will
be final tryouts for those notified
on Wednesday afternoon at the
League. It is expected that a tenta-
tive cast will be announced by Fri-,

Rockefeller Fouiidation Gives
$35,000 To Karanis Expedition

The Rockefeller Foundation of
New York has appropriated $35,000
for the use of the University of Mich-

cavations now being made on the site
of the ancient city of Karanis in the
Fayou district of Egypt, President

The gift makes possible the com-
pletion of one of the most important
projects of American archaeologists.
Most former excavations were de-
voted to the retrieving of objects of
art and to historical data in the way
of public buildings, monuments and
records. The Karanis expedition is
making a systematic survey of every
building in the city, including the
dwelling houses of the common peo-
