'Platform of Democratic
Party' Is The Subject Of
Voelker's Address
Opening the two series of forums
sponsored by the Student Christian
Association and the Michigan Union,
Paul F. Voelker, president of Battle
Creek College, and Henry T. Rainey,
House of Representatives Democratic
floor leader, will address students
here, it is announced.
Mr. Voelker, whose visit is spon-
sored by the Student Christian Asso-
ciation, will speak at 8 tonight in
Natural Science Auditorium on the
subject "The Platform of the Demo-
cratic Party." Mr. Rainey, the Union
speaker, is noted as one of the last
of the extremely low tariff Demo-
crats in the House. His address will
be given Wednesday, at about 1 p.
m., following a Union luncheon at
which he will address local Demo-
crats.
Socialist To Follow
Horatio J. Abbott, Democratic Na-
tional committeeman from Michigan,
will introduce Voelker, Jule Ayers,
'33, president of the S. C. A. said.
As the second of the series of S.
C. A. forums, a prominentSocialist
will follow a week behind Mr. Voel
ker to discuss the program of his
party and on Oct. 19 a nationally
known representative of the Republi-
can party will lead a discussion on
the party platform.
"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 interested
in seeing that this meeting is a real
forum."
Chance For Questions
"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."
Mr. Voelker received his Ph.B. de-
gree from Drake University in 1906,
and his Ph.D. from Columbia in 1920.
He was president of Olivet College
from 1920 to 1925 and lecturer on
the extension program of the Uni-
versities of Wisconsin and Minnesota
from 1913 to 1920.
'Rainey, according to the Collier's
of May 21, 1932, is America's fore-
most authority on the tariff and
would be speaker of the House had
it not been for an interruption in his
28 years of service in Congress.
He started the tariff revolt in 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.
Milner Company Takes
Over 'American House'
The Milner Hotel Company, for
the last four months operators of the'
old Whitney, have taken over a sec-
ond Ann Arbor establishment, the
American House on West Washing-
ton street, according to an an-
nouncement yesterday. The hotel
will be remodeled by its new own-
ers and the same rates prevailing at
the Milner will prevail at the new
house, which will be renamed the
"Griswold."
The American House, Ann Arbor's.
oldest hotel, was established by Mi-
chael Staebler and operated for the
past 37 years by his son, Albert Stae-
bler. The Milner company chain con-
sists of 21 small hotels in southern
Michigan and northern Ohio.

ELAN61NG, Oct. 3.-(q)-The suit
filed in Pontiac charging the State
with a $24,400,000 fraud in connec-
tion with the Grand Trunk project is
"malicious vengeance attempted by
disappointed property owners who
hoped to gouge the Government,"
Attorney General Paul W. Voorhies
declared tonight as he prepared to
carry the case even to the United
States Supreme Court if necessary.
He and E. B. Howarth, assistant
attorney general, who had been in
charge of the undertaking, vigor-
ously denied that the State has ac-
quired land illegally. They declared
that every step in carrying out the
project has been taken according to
law and in the best interests of the
public.
The suit, asking a restraining or-
der preventing the State from deed-
ing to the Grand Trunk Western
railway property costing $2,400,000,
was filed by Raymond M. Shock, of
Detroit, attorney for a group of Oak-
land County property owners. Judge
Glen N. C. Gillespie issued a tem-
porary injunction and ordered the
State to show cause Oct. 17 why it
should not be made permanent.
The contention of the property
owners is that instead of buying only
a strip of land 100 feet wide from
Birmingham to Royal Oak for the
Caution Drivers
Without Permit,
On Car License,

railroad right-of-way, Mr. Howarth
purchased approximately 100 acres
and 600 subdivision lots, some of
them a quarter of a mile distant
from the roadbed, at a cost of $2,-
400,000.
It is argued that the State was
restricted under the law to the ac-
quisition of land to be used only for
the right-of-way and had no author-
ity to buy excess acreage or subdivi-
sion lots.
The Attorney General and Mr.
Howarth admitted that excess pur-
chases had been made, but they
argued that such action was neces-
sary. They said all such land which
has not been sold will be deeded to
the Grand Trunk when the project
is completed, and the State will be
repaid in full.
Mr. Howarth, a former State sena-
tor, was a special State agent when
the land was acquired and had almost
complete jurisdiction over the pur-
chases. The only legal requirement
restraining him from spending as
much money as he desired for land,
was that each purchase must be ap-
proved by the Grand, Trunk and1
by the State Highway Commissioner.
Democrats Pledge
Lower Tarif, Says
Abbott In Address
When the Democrats come into
power next March they will lower
the tariff and do everything in their
power to reestablish trade relations1
with other countries as they were
before the time of excessively high
protective tariffs, said Horatio J. Ab-t
bott, Democratic National Commit-l
teeman from Michigan, in a talk tot
the United Labor Unions last night
in Labor Hall.
When asked why he was a Demo-l
crat Abott said that he always re-
plied: "I believe in principles whichi
when enacted into law bring the1
greatest good to the greatest num-T
ber of people. He went on to sayt
that the term' politician was nowt
wrongly held in general contempt;c
that people have not taken enough
interest in politics in recent years,
and that it is their moral duty to
take more interestin dthe subject.
Mr. Abbott pointed out that thec
words of Abraham Lincoln: "Yout
shouldn't change horses in the mid-
dle of a stream" did not apply in thisI
case as the Republican administra-
tion is not crossing the stream; theyI
are only going with the current, not
knowing whether there are falls be-r
low or not. r

'Rule
Car
Says

Covers Driving Of
By Non-students,'
Rea In Warning

Students driving automobiles with-
out permit tags attached to the car
will be considered in violation of the
automobile regulation even though
they have procured tags and have
them displayed in the windows of
their cars, Walter B. Rea, assistant
to the dean of students, declared last
night.
According to Rea, many students.
fail to understand that the automo-
bile regulation co ;ers the use of a
car as well as the operation of one.
Consequently it is not permissible
for a student to use his car, or a
family owned car, for social, per-
sonal or any other purposes when
the car is driven by a non-student
who is not a member of his imme-
diate family.
All permits must be renewed by
Feb. 1, Rea said, and the 1933 state
license number reported to his of-
fice, when new sets of permit tags
bearing the new license number will
be issued at no additional cost. All
old permit tags will be void on Feb.
1 and after that date any operation
of a car bearing permit tags with
the 1932 license numbers will be a
violation.
However, he pointed out, the op-
eration of a car by an out of town
student in and aboutahis home town
will not be considered a matter of
concern to University authorities
provided the car is not driven
through or in the immediate vi-
cinity of Ann Arbor, and provided
such driving does not involve a vio-
lation'of any law or traffic ordinance.

Three - Year Investigation
Culminates In statement
To Governor Turner
(Big Ten News Service)
IOWA CITY, Oct. 3-After being
buffeted at the hands of "investi-
gators" for nearly three years, the
University of Iowa's supervising body,
the state board of education, replied
to charges of maladministration in
university offices in a 22-page state-
ment directed to Gov. Dan. W. Tur-
ner at Des Moines.
Charges against the Des Moines
firm .of Allen, Busby, and Harrigan,
auditors who have completed an
eight month's survey and report at
the school, were also contained in the
statement. The board charged that
the auditors gathered together mat-
ters "which have long since been cor-
rected" in an effort to suggest "an
orgy of laxity."
The report of the auditors, begun
under provision of the state legis-
lature after instigation of an inves-

Trip Through City
WASHINGTON, Oct. 3. - () -
President Hoover left Washington
this afternoon for the Farm Belt,
where tomorrow night he will deliver
at Des Moines his first campaign ad-
dress since accepting his renomina-
tion.
The President traveled by special
train, accompanied only by Mrs.
Hoover, a small group of White
House attaches and the usual re-
tinue of secret service men. The time
of departure had not been announced
and there was no crowd to see him
off at the station, but some of those
meeting or catching trains recogniz-
ed the Chief Executive and applaud-
ed.
In Good Humor
Mr. Hoover smiled and doffed his
hat to them. He chuckled as he re-'
sponded to a request from a photo-
grapher to remove his hat for a pic-
ture. As the train pulled out Mrs.
Hoover joined him on the rear plat-
form, smiling and waving to those'
watching the departure.
A few minutes before the special
left, the President went inside the
club car and scanned a newspaper
until the final signal was given. Near
him sat Theodore Joslin and Walter
Newton, White House secretaries. At
the far end of the car Mrs. Hoover
was giving directions to arrange thet
car for the trip.
The President, his aides said, took
aboard the manuscript of his DesI
Mdines speech still unfinished. He
probably will complete it tomorrowI
nly a short time before arrival in
he Iowa capital.
Shortly before his departure Mr.S
Hoover conferred with Secretary,
Hyde, just back from a trip throughf
Mid-West sections, including Indi-E
ana, Michigan and Illinois, Hyde told
newspapermen he felt the President's
expected discussion of agriculturalt
questions in the Des Moines speechp
would "make a special appeal to the2
farmers."
President 'Gaining Ground' I
The secretary of agriculture saidt
he talked over this address with Mr.
Hoover and that he told the Presi-
dent he felt his candidacy was'
'gaining ground" in the states he
had visited.
Mr. Hoover also had an oppor-
unity before leaving to confer with
Henry M. Robinson, chairman of£
the executive committee of the bank-
ing and industrial committees es-
ablished in each of the 12 Federal
Reserve Districts.I
Robinson, a White House guest,k
has just returned from Chicago,
where he presided over a meeting
aimed to relieve the farm mortgage
situation.
In the morning, Mr. Hoover talkedE
with both Secretary Stimson and
James G. Rogers,assistant secretary
f state. The former had returned
from Philadelphia where he spoke inr
the President's behalf.-

Dickinson to Join Him7
Senator Dickinson, of Iowa, was
scheduled to board the special at
Englewood near Chicago tomorrow
morning and Gov. Dan Turner, of
Iowa, and Mrs. Turner will get on
later in the morning at Rock Island,
Ill.

rear-platform addresses at Rock Is-
land, Havenport, West Liberty, Iowa
City and Newton.
Tomorrow afternoon the Presiden-
tial party will motor through Des
Moines. Mr. and Mrs. Hoover will
be guests at the Governor's Mansion
for dinner before leaving for the
Coliseum to begin his speech at 7:30
o'clock, central standard time.

afterward, with the arrival in Wash-
ington set for early Thursday morn-

CHICAGO, Oct. 3 - (A) - Indict-
ment of Samuel and Martin Insull
will be sought tomorrow before the
county grand jury, State's Attorney
John A. Swanson announced tonight.
The prosecutor added that if the
indictments are voted, he would seek
immediately to have the two men ex-
tradited, Samuel Insull from Paris,
his brother, Martin, from Ontario.
Swanson said he will allege embez-
zlement, larceny and larceny by bail-
ee.
Announcement of the c o n t e m -
plated action came after the state's
attorney had earlier made public an
alleged transaction in w h i c h he
charged Samuel Insull o b t a i n e d
$374,400 through improper appraisal
of a block of stock figuring in an ex-
change of securities. His statement
follows:
"Tomorrow I shall present to the
grand jury some of the matters al-
ready developed by my investigation
into the Insull crash.
"I shall seek the immediate indict-
ment of Samuel and Martin J. In-
sull.
"The Insulls have not replied to
my telegrams and cables requesting
their voluntary return.
"If these people who have caused
losses of more than $2,000,000,000 to
investors will not return voluntarily,
then I shall use every means given
to me by the law to bring them
back."
Japan's Press
Scores Lytton
League Report
Insists That Government
Withdraw From League
If Findings Are Passed
TOKIO, Oct. 3.-(P)-The Japan-
ese press today vigorously denounced
the Lytton report on the Manchur-
ian problem and demanded that the
government withdraw f r o m the
League of Nations if the League as-
sembly adopts the findings of the
Lytton investigators.
The press generally reflected the
attitude of the war office, which is-
sued a statement declaring that
Japan would be forced to withdraw
from the League if the assembly act-
ed in the spirit of the report.
Will Pursue Aim
(In a statement written in Muk-
den for the Associated Press, General
Nubuyoshi Muto, supreme military
and diplomatic representative of
Japan, declared that "neither the
League of Nations nor any other
power can change our determina-
tion to pursue our established aim
in Manchuria.")
One of the points emphasized by
Japanese critics of the report, which
was made public in Geneva Sunday,
was the commission's recommenda-
tion that Manchuria be governed by
an autonomous government under
Chinese sovereignty.
'Must Quit League'
Headlines in the newspaper Nichi
Michi said: "Japan must quit the
League. The report insults Manchu-
kuo."
The Kokumin described the Lytton
document as "absolutely prejudiced
and unfair," and the Jiji Shimpo
declared it was "worse than expect-
ed" and "filled with error."
"The report is ignorant and dis-
torted, filled with empty theorizing
and disregards history," asserted the
newspaper Asahi. "It will be impos-
sible to establish world peace if the
League adopts it."
English and Japanese copies of the
lengthy document were sent by air-
mail from the foreign office to the
Japanese consulates at Mukden and
Changchun, the capitol of the new
state Manchukuo, set up in Man-
churia with the assistance of the
Japanese.

Cut Programs,
Reduce Funds
Five To Seven Per Cent
Decrease In Average
College Income Shown
WASHINGTON, Oct. 3. -UP)-
American colleges and universities,
said the federal office of education
today, are carrying on under pres-
ent economic conditions by reducing
funds for salaries, suspending build-
ing programs and curtailing activi-
ties not absolutely essential.
Replies to a questionnaire sent out
by the office showed the average de-
crease in income for 200 public and
private schools of higher education
was 5 to 7 per cent, although a few
were short as much as 450 per cent
or more.
"Very little change is expected,"
the office said, "in the general level
of tuition rates and fees for students.
Some few schools expected to in-
crease these charges; still fewer will
cut them.. .
"Several institutions report that
their building program is to be re-
duced or entirely suspended for the
year. Others expect to make great
reductions in the extension and cor-
respondence work, or will eliminate
them entirely. In other schools ap-
propriations for scientific research
are reduced or dispensed with.
"The total decrease in teaching'
staff reported by the schools is ap-
proximately 300. If this reduction in
staff holds for 'all universities and
colleges in the country, it means that
about 1,500 fewer professors will be
employed this year than last."

Speak As Governor's
Train Passes Through
Ann Arbor was host for four hours
on Sunday to Franklin D. Roose-
velt, Democratic presidential nomi-
nee and his campaign tour party.
Arriving in Ann Arbor shortly aft-}
er 6 a. in., the special train carry-
ing the New York governor pulled
into a siding on the Michigan Cen-
tral Railroad tracks, remaining there
until about 10 a. m. when the party
left for Detroit.
Before his departure, Governor
Roosevelt appeared on the train
platform and greeted a crowd ofc
about 300 persons. Senator Thomast
Walsh of Montana and Representa-
tive Michael Hart of Saginaw ad-l
dressed the group briefly.
Mrs. Roosevelt appeared on the
platform with her husband. The
nominee apologized for the absence
of his sons who, he said, had been
out late to a party the night before1
in Chicago, and had not yet arisen.
Horatio Abbott, national commit-
teeman, and William Walz, Washte-
naw c o u n t y campaign chairman,
boarded the Roosevelt special, ac-t
companying the presidential candi-
date to Detroit. Abbott spent most
of the day by the governor's side.t
Council Turns :
Over City Aids
To Committee
City Attorney Urged To
Prefer Action Against
Tax Delinquents
By a vote of 12 to 3, the city
council last night voted to abolish
the commissary committee and place
responsibility for all poor activities
in the hands of an enlarged poor
committee enjoined to meet once,
weekly with the city poor commis-
sioner. A resolution proposed by Al-,
derman Emil Schlenker censuring
the defunct commissary committee,
was dropped after heated protests
by Aldermen Paton, Faust, and
Thomas.
The city attorney was urged to
press action against all tax delin-
quents in a resolution presented by
a special committee authorized to in-
vestigate the tax problem. It was
alleged in the report that the city
was forced to pay the state, county
and school tax not collected, the city
thus failing to receive its due share
of the money collected.
The poor committee reported that
337 persons are now reeciving aid
from the welfare department, a de-
crease of 75 becauseof the opening
of the University. Saturday, Octo-
ber 15 was set as the date for a city-
wide drive for shoes, clothing and
shelter for the needy to be conducted
by the Boy Scouts, the proceeds go-
ing to either the poor department or
the Family Welfare bureau as desig-
nated by the cntributors. The city
attorney was requested to investigate
all complaints of fraudulent requests

for relief and to prosecute persons

Handle C ase
Of Discipline
Action To Remove Literary
Student Discipline From
University Committee
Pends Approval
Cross Elected To
Advisory Counsel
Amendment To Entrance
Requisites May Change
Foreign Language Group
Needed For Admission
Cases of discipline in the literary
college may be handled by the col-
lege's disciplinary committee rather
than by the University committee, if
such action is approved at the No-
vember meeting of the college facul-
ty, according to Dean John R. Effin-
ger. The question was brought up at
the monthly meeting yesterday as a
special order of the November ses-
sion.
A committee of three, Professors
J. S. Reeves of the political science
department, R. D. MacKenzie of the
sociology department, and S. L. Bige-
low of the chemistry department,
was appointed "to report at the No-
vember meeting as to how cases of
discipline should be handled by the
literary faculty." Heretofore, ac-
cording to Dean Effinger, such cases
have been referred by the literary
college disciplinary committee to that
of the University, which was origin-
ally designed to take care of single
offenses committed by students from
several different colleges.
Case, Parker Named
Professor E. C. Case of the geology
department and DeWitt H. Parker of
the philosophy department were
elected to serve a three year term as
members of the Library Commission.
Prof. Case rkwas re-elected, and Pro-
fessor Parker succeeds Prof. W. F.
Hunt of the geology department.
The vacancy in the Dean's Advis-
ory Committee, caused by expiration
of the four-year term of Prof. Wil-
ham H. Hobbs of the geology de-
partment, was filled by Prof. A. L.
Cross, of the history department.
To Decide in November
A second order of business for the
November meeting, proposed yester-
day, was that an amendment be
made to the college entrance re-
quirements for students from pre-
paratory schools. As. the require-
ments now stand, it is necessary to
have two credit groups of three units
each. It is proposed that two units
in each of two foreign languages be
substituted for the second three-unit
group.
The next meeting of the Literary
college, at which action will be taken
upon these two special orders, will
be held on the first Monday in No-
vember.
Flint Police Seek
Identity Of Bandit
Shot In Gun Fight
FLINT, Oct. 3-(M-Police tonight
were seeking to determine the iden-
tity of a bandit fatally wounded by
state police today during a running
gun fight along South Saginaw St.
after the man had held up and
robbed three lunch standsand a gar-
age on the highway between Pon-
tiac and Flint.
Four others were wounded, none

believed seriously, when a state po-
lice officer's shotgun was discharged
accidentally after the bandit was
shot and captured.
Flint officials and state police, ad-
vised by radio that the bandit had
held up four places along the high-
way outside of Pontiac, and was
traveling toward Flint, immediately
surrounded the highway. As the car
sped toward them, they opened fire.
The bandit returned the fire and
sped on but a charge from a shotgun
struck him. He lost control of his
machine, and it crashed into a tele-
phone post. The man was taken to
a Flint hospital, where he died sev-
eral hours later, without regaining
consciousness.
