For New Election
Plan Will Be Presented
To Engineering College
At a meeting of the Undergraduate
Council held yesterday in the Union,
further plans for organization and
the conduct of the freshman and
sophomore elections in the literary
college were formulated. At the same
time the date of the elections were
definitely set for Wednesday, Dec. 5.
A reduction in both the elective
and appointive offices of all classes
was made subject to later revision by
There will be two elective offices
for each of the two lower classes, a
class president or administrator and
a dance chairman. In the junior
class one or two additional dance
committeemen will be elected, and in
the senior class a president, secre-
tary, treasurer, and dance chairman
will be elected.
Positions Not Decided
The number of appointive posi-
tions for each class has not been de-
cided as yet, but it was dfeinitely de-
cided that all appointments to posi-
tions in the classes will have to be
ratified by the election board.
Further plans were also drawn to
fill in the mechanical details for the
conduct of the petition system and the
election board. Two more positions
were added to the board to insure
representation for independent stu-
dents. These posts will be filled by
the president of the Assembly of Un-
affiliated WQmen and by one male
student to be chosen by the Under-
Dean of Students Joseph A. Bursley
was chosen from the members of the
election board to be its chairman. In
the meeting to be held for the pur-
pose of nominating candidates from
among those handing in petitions he
will receive the ballots from the board
members, will count them privately,
and will keep the results secret until
the day of the election. In case of
a tie in the board vote he will call
for another vote, in all cases keeping
the results secret.
Must File Petitions
Contents of the petitions to be
submitted by prospective candidates,
as specified by the Council, should
include the applicant's name and his
plans for the conduct of the office.
Petition blanks will be available at
the Office of the Dean of Students
next week, and petitions must be re-
turned to the same office by the Sat-
urday preceding the election day.
At least nine petitions will have
to be submitted for each office before
an election can be held. From this
number two will be nominated by the
election board. If the required num-
ber of petitions is not submitted, the
election will be postponed until a
sufficient number has been handed

High Taxi Rate Is

of cab operators appeared -those
who favored the continuance of the
present rates of 35 and 50 cents.
William Wagner, representing the
Red Arrow Cab Company, led the
fight for the high rates. Claiming
to speak for half the cab drivers in
the city, he said, "I for one will haul
passengers for five cents unless this
ordinance is passed."
None of the other men who spoke
went to this extreme. They included
representatives of the Ann Arbor Taxi
Company, Mac's Taxi, and the Cam-
pus Cab Company.

Collection, Left By Indians
Of 2,000 Years Ago, Is
Unearthed By TVA
The Ceramic Repository of the An-
thropology Museum has begun work
on the 5,000 pieces of ancient Amer-
ican Indian pottery unearthed by the
Tennessee Valley Authority excava-
tions, it was announced yesterday.
Harking back more than 2,000
years, the bits of artistic clay un-
folded an unwritten chapter in Amer-
ican history. Research done on them
is expected to make great advances
in understanding the civilization of
that early period.
From Eastern Tennessee
The large collection comes from
the 300 miles of territory to be flooded
by the Norris Dam in eastern Tennes-
see, and the Wheeler Basin in north-
ern Alabama. Following the classi-
fication of the multifarious parts,
which will take over a year, the re-
sults of the research will be published
in a report of the archaeological work
done by the TVA.
The pottery was shipped to the
University by Dr. W. S. Webb of the
University of Kentucky, who has
charge of TVA archaeological work.
Museum officials recognize this pot-
tery as a "rare find" which will be
the best so far discovered for means
of identifying its primitive makers.
Griffin In Charge
Along with the pottery, much of
which was fdund six feet and more
in the earth, were skeletons, houses,
and temple structures, as well as im-
plements used by the Indians. They
were found in layers, or stratas, one
on top of another, showing that many
generations have lived on the same
James B. Griffin, in charge of the
work in the Repository, is of the op-
inion that the pottery, which con-
sists of vases, urns, cooking bowls,
and pitchers, was constructed by
"peoples culturally similar to the
Cherokee and Sioux Indians."
Most of the pottery, while in bits,
was in good condition. Though some
of it was spoiled by the excavations,
archaeologists were usually on the
spot to supervise digging where pot-
terv was helieved to he hried.
Record Of Northwestern
This Year Little Better
Regeczi Will Be
Back At Halfback
Injuries Riddle Michigan
Team; Kipke Hopes For
By ARTHUR W. CARSTENS
Six Wolverine regulars will close
their football careers in today's game
with Northwestern, and upon the
shoulders of these six, who helped
Michigan to National Championships
in 1932 and '33, will rest the ignom-
inous task of trying to drag the Wol-
verines out of the Conference cellar.
Northwestern's record this year has
been little better than Michigan's, but
her 7 to 0 victory over Wisconsin
three weeks ago gives them the edge

squad into Michigan yesterday but

bor for a workout in the stadium,

25,0 May Attend
If the weather is propitious 25,090
spectators will be on hand, many of
them expecting the sort of "dirty"
game that these two teams have
played in their last two meetings.
It was rumored last winter that
Northwestern might be dropped from
the Conference for "dirty playing" in
the Michigan game at Evanston.
Today's game concludes a three-
game series and the two teams will
not meet in 1935. This is not due, how-
ever, as was pointed out by officials
at the time schedules were announced,
to charges of unfair play against
Northwestern. The teams will meet
again in 1936.
Coach Kipke will start a combina-
tion of six graduating seniors and
four sophomores and one junior. Sen-
iors who will start their last game are
Hildebrand, Ford, Captain Austin,
Borgmann, Ward, and Regeczi. Other
seniors who may get into the game
include Fuog, Beard, Oliver, Jacob-
son and Triplehorn.
Injuries suffered in the Ohio State
game have again forced Kipke to re-
vise his starting lineup, placing Bud
Hanshue at left tackle in place of
John Viergever who has been taking
very light drills this week and may get
into the game.
Jerry Ford is described by the team
physicians as "having enough in-
juries to keep three men out" but will
start at center with Russ Fuog ready
to replace him.
John Regeczi has been shifted back
to halfback and Steve Remias, who
started in several earlier games, will
take the fullback post left vacant
when Cedric Sweet wrenched his
knee two weeks ago.
SThough still handicapped by the
I injury to his left hand which kept
him out of recent games, Joe Ellis
will start at right half. Kipke is de-
pending on the sophomore to con-
tribute a running and passing threat.
George Bolas and Ferris Jennings
have continued their battle for the
starting assignment at quarter during
the past week but Ann Arbor's mighty
midget will again get the call today.
Northwestern Also Hampered
Northwestern, too, will be hampered
by injuries which will keep their
first and second-string quarterbacks
out of the starting line-up. George
Potter, first-string quarter who was
hurt in the Illinois game, may be
sufficiently recovered to play part of
today's game, but Lind, second-string
signal caller, is definitely out.
Kipke, instead of praying for rain
as he has since the Georgia Tech and
Illinois games, hopes for a dry field
today. The team has been drilling
all week on spectacular forward and
lateral passing plays which need a
dry field for their proper execution.
A committee, consisting of Carl
Hilty, '35, president of the Council,
John C. Healy, '35, president of Mich-
igamua, and David G. Macdonald,
'36, president of Sphinx, was ap-
pointed to complete the details of the

of elective and appointive positions to
