Teams Are Victorious
EVANSTON, Ill., Oct. 1.-(')-
Northwestern had to call in three
cripples, Capt. Pug Rentner, Dick
Fencl and George Potter, to quell
Missouri's unruly Tigers today, but
did a thorough job after getting
started, winning 27 to 0.
A surprisingly large crowd of 28,-
000 spectators watched Missouri bat-
tle the Wildcats to a standstill in the
first half, and hold the co-champions
of the Western Conference to a 0 to
0 tie. Then, Hanley sent in his trio,
who had been out with injuries and
who were not to be used except in
case of need, and the offense started

State University opened its season
here this afternoon by scoring a 34
to 7 triumph over an old rival, Ohio
Wesleyan University. In the second
and third periods many of the Scar-
let second and third string players
were in the lineup.
Wesleyan's lone score came in the
third period when Vandervort broke
away off tackle for a 53-yard run.
MADISON, Oct. 1-VP)-Wisconsin
today sustained its reputation of
never having met defeat'on the grid-
iron at the hands .of Marquette, but
was pushed to the limit to win, 7
to 2, in the opening game of the
season. Marquette's two points came
in early in the first period when Ed
Rosmarynoski, guard,, blocked a Wis-
consin punt with his face near the
15-yard line. McGurie chased the
ball across the line, however, and fell
on it for a safety. Wisconsin's score
came less than three minutes after
the second half began, Dick Hay-
worth carrying the ball across from
the nine-yard line.

According to Horatio J. Abbot,
Democratic National committeeman
from Michigan, Voelker is one of the
best platform representatives of the
party in Michigan.
As the second of the series of S.
C. A. forums, a prominent Socialist
will follow a week behind Voelker
to discuss the program of his party
and on Oct. 19 a nationally known
representative of the Republican par-
ty will lead a discussion on the party
"It is the plan of the student
Christian Association in its open for-
ums this year to stimulate thought
on national political problems," Ay-
ers said. "The meeting to be held
Tuesday evening is not a political
rally, and it is not planned as a
mass meeting. The S. C. A. is in-
terested in seeing that this meeting is
a real forum."
"It is a chance for students to
come and ask intelligent questions
of a man who represents the bid for
leadership by one of our great po-
litical parties," Ayers continued. "I
trust that this meeting will mark the
beginning of an active attempt by
student organizations on this campus
to plan many meetings of the type
Mr. Voelker will lead Tuesday."
Voelker received his Ph.B. degree
from Drake University in 1906, and
his Ph.D. from Columbia in 1920.

Proninent Democrat Will
Speak At Union Forum
Henry T. Rainey, House of Repre-
sentatives Democratic floor leader,
who is to speak at the first Union
forum on Wednesday is one of the
last of the very low tariff Democrats
in the House, according to the Col-
lier's of Jan. 23, 1932.
Despite the fact that very low tar-
iff advocates are in the minority in
the Democratic party in the House.
Collier's continues, Rainey is now
the leader of party in the house. He
was picked for this position mainly
because the Democrats wanted a
northern leader and Rainey was the
only man available.
Rainey is in favor of the re-estab-
lishment of relations with Russia.
According to the Collier's of May 21,
1932, he is America's foremost au-
thority on the tariff and would be
the speaker of the House had it not
been for a break of one term in his
28 years of service in Congress.
He started the tariff revolt iin 1908
and in 1912 he proposed and forced
the authorization of the Tariff Com-
mission. He is a strong advocate of
a world tariff conference to straight-
en out difficulties.
Rainey will address a meeting of
local Democrats at the Union at a
luncheon before the forum which is
scheduled to begin about 1 p. m. on
Wednesday. Contrary to former
statements, Rainey will not speak in
Ann Arbor at any other meeting as
he is to address a meeting in Ypsi-
lanti on Wednesday evening.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 1-()-Up-
on the White House steps, a dele-
gation of more than 150 Negro vot-
ters today asked of President Hoo-
v oer and received from him a declara-
tion that the "right of liberty, jus-
tice and equal opportunity is yours.".
Standing with head uncovered un-
der a warm sun, the President told
the Negro delegates that he desired
to carry on the Republicantradition
of Abraham Lincoln.
"You may rest assured," he said,
"that our partyswill not abandon or
depart from its t r a d i t i o n a 1 duty
for the American negro. I shall sus-
tain this pledge given in the first in-
stance by the immortal Lincoln and
transmitted by him to those who fol-
lowed as a sacred trust."
The chief executive's statement
was in reply to three addresses by
Negro spokesmen who said they came
as a joint national planning commit-
tee, gathered from more than 20
states, to get out the presidential vote
of their state. One after another
they stepped into a cleared circle to
Roscoe Conklin Simmons, of Chi-
cago, who seconded the renomina-
tion of the President at the Chicago
convention, spoke first and longest.
He gestured frequently toward the
President, who stood silent but in-
tent a few feet above him.,
"We have been told, Mr. Presi-
dent," Simmons said, "that our par-'
ty has deserted the old faith. We
are tongue cursed by a thoughtless
few because we hold that, although;
Abraham Lincoln is dead, he still
lives. Some few have gone so far as
to say that you do not believe in
human equality. We protested and
arose to seek you. We are here to
repledge our faith."

Striking out for a victory in the
first game of the season, Michigan's
1932 football machine overwhelmed

After this one spurt by the Spar-

Line Proves Strength
Kipke's new line proved its de-
fensive strength by holding State to
two first downs. The baptismal fire
proved that the tackles and guards
could hold" tIeir own aainmt the
Spartans, who had the four starting
backs that held Michigan to a score-
less tie last year.
Although last week Michigan State
fans said that no back on the Wol-
verine eleven could make the Spar-
tan team, at least five of the Maize
and Blue ball-carriers out-played the
white-clad backs. Five of the Mstart-
ing linemen also kept Michigan at
bay last season but could only limit
the Wolverines to one score in each

Herman Everhardus' 32-yard twist-
ing, turning run for a touchdown
in the fourth period was the out-
standing performance of the after-
noon. Five different times on the
jaunt, would-be State tacklers got
their hands on the lanky halfback,
but on each occasion, he evaded
them by twisting out of their grasps.
After rounding his left end to start
the sprint, Everhardus cut back
across the field, leaving the tacklers
strewn along the ground.
. Regeezi Shows Force
Regeczi provided the punch when
the last few yards were needed. Ev-
ery time he took the ball in the first
half, he plunged at least two yards,
scoring a touchdown in the first
quarter, while in the second half
he was limited to one yard on three
occasions. His afternoon's average
was three yards for each plunge. Ev-
erhardus had the best average of the
day with eight yards for every at-
Harry Newman seemed to have
State on the run all afternoon. The
Spartans were afraid of his passing
and every time he carried the ball,
the Spartan tacklers looked as if they
were watching for a lateral. His
spectacular catch of Abe Eliowitz's
punt on the 50-yard line and run-
back of 35 yards gave the fans a good
idea of what he can do when he op-
ens up. He also kicked three straight
extra points, although the last one
was not allowed.
Stan Fay gave an excellent exhi-
bition of blocking for Michigan ball-
carriers and performed well advanc-
ing the pigskin up the field him-
self, making one six-point score with
a plunge. Jack Heston swept around
right end for a touchdown in the
third quarter without a State man
getting his hands on him.

Roy Hoyer, Former Director
Of Union Opera, Returns
One of Ann Arbor's best known
citizens returned to the city this week
in the person of Roy Hoyer, roted
stage dancer and dancing instructor.
In partnership with E. Mortimer
Schuter, for years his business mana-
ger in stage productions, Hoyer has
opened his dancing school at his
home, 919 Oakland avenue, for the
third year. The courses offered at
the school range from tap dancing
to reducing exercises, the pupils com-
ing from all ages-four and a half
"Royal Family of Broadway." For
the last two years Hoyer has di-
rected the annual Players' league
productions, the last of which was
staged for the benefit of the local
unemployment fund. He announced
last night that he intends to offer a
musical version of "Alice in Wonder-
land," to be staged by his pupils.
In April, he will direct the 1933 Uni-1
versity of Wisconsin opera.
Shuter, who directs the business
end of the Hoyer school, was Hoy-
er's first professional manager on
