Inflation Of Balloon Before Stratosphere Flight



C;onser'va~tive Leader

Political Re-Ali'iiient Seen As
Aftermath Of Reed's Address

The program at the Michigan for'
I the next two days is a pot-pourri of'
light entertainment, including besides
the feature picture and the stage
show a Thelma Todd-Patsy Kelly
comedy, a cartoon comedy, and Paul
Tompkins at the organ. It is all good
light entertainment ,and will offer'
two hours of satisfying chuckling to
almost anybody.
"Big Hearted Herbert" features
Guy Kibee, Aline MacMahon, and
Patricia Ellis. Taken from the New
York success of the same name, is has
been made into a fast-moving, well-
executed picture. The story is con-
cerned with a middle western busi-
ness man of the pre-American-culture
era whose success has gone very much
to his head. His daughter wants to
marry a wealthy boy. He doesn't like
it. His son wants to become an engi-
neer. He wants him to go into his
plumbing business. When the daugh-
ter brings her prospective in-laws to
dinner at his house, he makes a fool
of himself and family (much to the
enjoyment of the audience). The
next night he brings home one of his
best customers and his wife. Then
his family make a bigger fool out of
him (much more to the enjoyment of
the audience). It all ends well, of
course, and everyone is satisfied, in-
cluding the (by that time) hilarious
"Roisman's Collegians," the stage
show, is short, funny and entertain-
ing. Impersonations of Zazu Pitts
and Stan Laurel are well done, and
there is an acrobatic dancer of no
mean ability.

meet more liberal standards which
could be tightened up as the years

In passing I can state that Lambda.

Bliht Found.
On University
Forestry Farm
Chestnut Tree Victim Of
Disease Spreading Over-
Entire United States
Chestnut blight, which has rapid-
ly spread throughout the United
States, and is fast dooming the Amer-
ican chestnut tree commercially, has
recently been discovered on the Uni-
versity Forestry Farm by Prof. Dow
V. Baxter of the School of Forestry
and Conservation, it was disclosed to-
The disease was first introduced
into the United States from China
many years ago. It has spread rap-
idly from the original center of its
introduction at New York City until
now every chestnut tree in the United
States is endangered. Its unchecked
spread into the New England forests
and into the timber of the Blue Ridge
and Allegheny mountains has
wrought more destruction than any
other forest-tree disease known.
The blight was identified on two
trees by Professor Baxter in one of
the old plantings in the University's
Saginaw Forest. The chestnut trees
on which the blight was found were
planted in the fall of 1906. The dis-
ease has previously been found in
Michigan as early as 1916 but was
destroyed and did not crop up again
until 1927. Professor Baxter, hpw-
ever, is the first to discover its pres-
ence in this immediate vicinity.
The particular stand in which the
blight was found prevalent is prized
because of its value, and because of
its use in teaching certain courses
in the University.

(Daily Staff Correspondent)
DETROIT. Oct. 25 - The definite
trend toward a new alignment of
political parties composed of liberal
and conservative elements was ex-
pressed in political circles here today
following the bitter denunciation of
:he Administration's policies by for-
mer Senator James A. Reed (Dem.-
Mo.) in an address before a non-par-
:isian meeting Wednesday night.
The grey-haired Senator, still ac-
vive despite his 72 years, made no pre-
tense at hiding his antipathy of the
New Deal. He openly stated that he
'poke "as a Democrat and not as a
New Dealer" in his addresr entitled,
"The Constitution and the New Deal."
No Doubt of Feeling
The famous Missourian who made
himself a nationally known figure
through his opposition to America's
joining the League of Nations, spoke
under the auspices of the Marygrove
Non-Partisan Voters League, an or-
ganization virtually unheard of in
local political areas. The sponsor-
ship of Senator Reed can only be
guessed at, but from his bitter opposi-
tion to the New Deal, there is little
doubt as to its source.
Reed is not by any means the ex-
ception to the rule. Since the period
following the World War, there has
been a gradual increase in the num-
ber of party men who have forsaken
the platforms of their respective par-
ties at various times to enlist under
the so-called "independent" group.
Most notable of these are William
Borah, Idaho's political whip in the
Senate, the fiery Jim Norris of Kan-
sas, and the La Follettes of Wiscon-
Today the moye is more than just
that of a few independent men. It
is a wholesale change of certain ele-
ments of both parties toward a lib-
eral or conservative attitude. The
liberal attitude toward the powers of

Party An Enigma
There is considerable doubt in the
minds of political observers today as
to just what organization will carry
out the new principles. It is exceed-
ingly doubtful if the old Democratic
and Republican parties will carry on.
There are liberal Republicans who
back Roosevelt and his social legis-
lation, and there are conservative
Democrats who oppose any such a
Just what channel the new align-
ment will take is yet unknown. The
constitutional question over the pow-
ers of government regulation has
been argued since the days of Patrick
Henry and Daniel Webster. Political
observers cannot agree upon the
course, but all admit that some
change is inevitable.
