T. A. Knott Is
Appointed y
RegentAction
Is Selected To Replace
Late Prof. S. B. Moore
As Dictionary Editor
Summer Budget Is
Aceepted By Board
Allotment Increased By
$6,000 To Provide For
Larger Enrollment
The appointment of Dr. Thomas A.
Knott, noted student of English and
general editor of the New Webster In-
ternational Dictionary, to replace
Prof. Samuel B. Moore, who died sev-
eral weeks ago, as professor of Eng-
lish and editor of the Middle English
Dictionary was made yesterday by the
Board of Regents.
Other important items brought be-
fore the meeting was the approval of

$233,000, an increase of $6,000 more
than that of the past summer, the
accepting of $5,250 in gifts to the
University, and the granting of sab-
batical leaves for the second semester
to seven professors.
Scholar Of Note
Dr. Knott, who received his Ph.D.
at the University of Chicago and
taught both there and in the Uni-
versity of Iowa, is recognized as one
of the most outstanding English
scholars in the country. As general
editor of the Webster Dictionary, he
has been in charge of putting out the
recent volume for the past eight years.
He is 53 years old.
The reason given for the $6,000
increase in the Summer Session bud-
get was the 10 and one-half per cent
increase in the number of students
enrolled, together with an added en-
rollment in the Graduate School.
Private Papers Given
Perhaps more important than any
gift of money, according to Univer-
sityhauthorities,pwassthe bequeathal

Detroit, secretary of war under Pres-
ident McKinley, by his daughter, Mrs.
Henry E. Shelden of Grosse Pointe
Shores, and Mrs. Charles A. Pike of
Chicago.
Other gifts accepted by the Regents
were as follows: $2,000 from Mrs.
Marjorie Flemming Meyer of Ann Ar-
bor to establish a Dr. George Flem-
ming memorial fund for investigative
and educational purposes in thorasic
surgery; $1,500 from the American
Library Association for the use of
Mrs. Evelyn Steel Little, doing re-
search here; $1,200 from the Commit-
tee in Aid of Displaced Surgeons to
make possible the appointment of Dr.
J. Heinz Aronheim as research assis-
tant in pathology; $400 from Mrs.,
Daisy Potter Biele of Evansville, Ind.
for investigation in the cardiographic
laboratory; and $150 from the Mich-
igan Athletic Association to add to its
loan fund here.

lish department, who will do research
work in the Hudington Library in

partment; and Prof. Carl Dahlstrom
of the English department of the en-
gineering college, who will study in
P'rance.
Anordinary leave was granted

of chemical engineering.

A report showing enrollment rec-
ords to Nov. 1 placed the number of
students at 9,005, a gain of nine per
cent over last year. The literary col-
lege has the most with 2,772 men and
1,602 women, a total of 4,374.
The authorization of an additional
infantry officer in the military science
department was given, as was permis-
sion to keep the medical exhibit of

quently found in papers such as the
Detroit Free Press and the Chicago
Tribune.
Speaking at a 2:15 p.m. session of
the Institute in University High
School Auditorium, Mr. Kaye further
declared that these cases of deliberate
misstatement were examples of "yel-
low journalism."
Communism Scored
Answering questions after his ad-
dress which was on "Extending the
Scope of Education," Mr. Kaye said,
that the "angleworm" of Communism
will destroy itself, adding however,
that he was vitally interested in this
subject, having a speech concerning'
it which he had given 287 times, di-
rected, he said, against the Soviet.
In conclusion, he stated that the cali-
ber of teaching in the newly formed
"freshman colleges" throughout the
State was inferior, and by its very
nature must continue to be inferior
to the teaching in organized educa-
tional units.
Mr. Kaye's discussion took the form
of a conference, supplanting a pre-
viously scheduled speech by Ruth;
Freegard, State supervisor of home'
economic education, who was ill, and,
unable to be present.

people yesterday in the Tappan Jun-

Regent Shields decried the "inac-
tivity of the Hoover administration'
during the most critical days of the
depression," and praised President
Roosevelt for his New Deal.
"President Roosevelt was elected
by Democrats with the aid of Re-
publicans who joined with them toI
change the kind of government we'
had been having," he said. He stated
his belief that people must use one of
the two parties, and that "voting the
Democratic ticket does not make you
a Democrat."
Discussing the agencies of the New
Deal one by one, the regent pointed
out that "they all follow the preamble;
of the Constitution in attempting to
provide for the general welfare of the
people."
He quoted many statistics and
brought the CWA, the PWA, and the
CCC into focus, claiming they have
done "inestimable good."
"If you don't agree with these pol-
icies --if you don't approve of pro-
viding work for the jobless, food for
the hungry, and shelter for those
without it. then you must vote the
Republican ticket," he asserted.
'e d'eclaied th'at the NRA is "fun-;
damentally sound in theory, lawful,
and just." He urged that voters send
Democratic congressmen to Wash-
ington to support the President.
Touching on the senatorial cam-
paign, he.inferred hostility to Van-
denberg when he said, "I would not
put my judgment against that of theI
President by saying thatI am with
him when he is right and against him
when he is wrong."1
Regent Shields saw the election as
"your chance to approve or disap-
prove the policies of the present ad-
ministration."
"I am only a country lawyer," he
laughed, "but I am here to make you
professors think about the kind of
government you want.",

Co-ed Injured
When St r u Cc
By Automlobile
Bernice Kleiman, '37, was in the
University Hospital last night as a
result of injuries sustained when she
was struck by a car at 4:15 p.m. yes-
terday at the corner of Division and
Washington Streets.
Her condition was reported as not
serious by hospital authorities, al-
though information as to the exact
extent of her injuries could not be
obtained last night.
According to the report of Sergt.
Clifford West and Irwin Keebler who
investigated the case, Miss Kleiman
was struck by a Ford coupe driven by
Mrs. Pearl W. Sellards, 224 Mason
Ave. The report stated that Mrs. Sel-
lards was driving south on Division
St. and struck Miss Kleiman who was
just crossing. At the time of the
accident Miss Kleiman was past the

Bierman "Fears" Michigan
Comparative records of the two
teams show that Minnesota should
win easily, but Coach Bernie Bierman
fears Michigan. He remembers that
Minnesota hasn't defeated Michigan
at home since 1892, he remembers
that Minnesota hasn't scored; on
Michigan since 1929, remembers too
that his powerful running backs
fumble a great deal and that Mich-
igan always plays smart, heads-up
football waiting for the breaks.
A squad of 31 Wolverines arrived
in Minneapolis this morning and
worked out for a short time in Me-
morial Stadium. The players are ap-
parently undaunted by the nation-
wide reputation of Pug Lund and his
teammates have won as a bone-
crushing steamroller and have pre-
pared a tricky forward and lateral
passing attack with which they hope
to upset the Northmen.
Gopher Line Outweighed
Kipke will start his regular line
which will outweigh the Gophers
slightly, and will have Whitey Aug
in the halfback position left vacant
when Willis Ward was moved to end
at the beginning of the week.
The Michigan team as a whole is
in better condition today than it was
for the Illinois game a week ago. Leg
injuries suffered by several linemen
in the Georgia Tech game have com-
pletely healed, and Ward's return to
end will give Mike Savage a chance
to rest a battered knee. Cedric Sweet's
broken finger still keeps him' from
handling the ball well when kicking,
and will necessitate the use of Russ
Oliver if Regeczi has to be removed
from the game, but the injured digit
does not hinder the fullback's line-
bucking and strong defensive play.
Defense To Be Pressed
Both he and Jerry Ford will have a
busy afternoon stopping the rushes

ing sophomore fullback, even thougi
Michigan's heavy line does perform
up to expectations. Lund, in spite of
a wet field, ran through the Wolverine
line at will in last year's scoreless
game, and Kostka has virtually taken
the fullback post away from Beise
who played stellarly against Mich-
igan last November.
The 215-pound youngster has
scored nine touchdowns in four games
to become the second highest scorer
in the nation. He will appear in the
game very early, although the vet-
eran Beise will probably start.
Lund chipped a bone in his right
thumb during practice this week and
may be unable to pass or kick very ac-
