Nearly 30 persons are expected to
hear the Michigan statesman. The
national president of Kappa Phi Sig-
ma, of which Alpha Nu is a member,
Lyle Eiserman, '28, may attend the
banquet, officials said.
Just 20 years ago when Governor
Brucker was still in the University,
he spoke at an Alpha Nu banquet on
the topic, "Something Or Other."
When Toastmaster Arthur Marlowe,
'36, introduces him, he will give him
that subject to speak on again.
William Groening, '36L, will give
the toast to the pledges, and the re-
sponse will be made by Ralph Dan-
hos, '36., The initiation proper will
take place at 4 p.m. Wednesday after-
noon, Carl Nelson, '37, president,
stated. All Alpha Nu alumni on the
campus are invited to the banquet,
he said.
A Michigan graduate in the class
of '16L, and an. Alpha Nu alumnus,
Governor Brucker has had a brilliant
career in Michigan politics. An al-
most unknown lawyer, he was ap-
pointed assistant prosecuting attorney
of Saginaw county. He was reelected
and was then named as assistant at-
torney-general. When Attorney-
General William Potter was made a
supreme court justice by Governor
Fred W. Green, in February, 1929,
Brucker was named to replace him.
After serving two terms in that office,
he was elected governor in 1930. He
was defeated in the Repulican land-
slide of 1932.

Northwestern's search for a new head

Waldorf's selection was announced

weeks ago.

Wolverines Come From

Scoring Both Goals
Dick Berryman, sophomore right
wing, who went thirsting for goals in
Friday's high scoring hockey game
with Wisconsin, presented the Mich-
igan cause with two much-needed
counters last night at the Coliseum
to pull the Wolverines from behind
into a 2 to 1 victory and a clean sweep

Wisconsin On Defense
The Wisconsin sextet, seeming to'
concede the game to Michigan from
the outset, played a defensive game
throughout, but showed at times more
competitive fire than was exhibited
in Friday's contest.
Johnny Sherf, unable to break
through a five-man defensive wall,
was also boxed up handily by Fallon,
Badger right wing, and failed to getf
a score for the first time in any game
this season.
Midway in the first period, Fallon
managed to slip through the Michigan
defensive, while Vic Heyliger was
sprawled out as a result of a stunning
body check, to score from close in.
Johnny Jewell, who had another
peaceful evening with only 10 saves
did a leg split, but the puck slid under1
him before he could get down.
Heyer Has 39 Saves
Trying to preserve a one-goal lead,
Wisconsin played a strictly defensive
style of game for the remainder of
the period. Heyer,tBadgergoalie
was in good form, turning back 15
shots in this period. He had 39 saves
for the entire game.
The second period found Michigan
carrying the contest into Badger ter-
ritory continually, with Vic Heyliger
the spearhead of the Wolverine at-1
tack. After nearly five minutes were
gone, Heyliger's shot from just in-
side the red line bounded off Chuck

Worse Than Atlantic Trip,
She Says; May Fly On To
OAKLAND, Calif., Jan. 12 --(')-
Amelia Earhart Putnam, ocean-con-
quering aviatrix, flashed into Oakland
today to complete the first solo flight
ever made between Hawaii and Cali-
fornia - and hastily combed her
tousled blonde hair before turning
to face a madly cheering crowd.
"I'm tired," said the famous holder
f many aviation records as she pop-
ped her head out of the cockpit, saw
the crowd and reached for her comb.
The wheels of her swift, red mono-
plane touched dry land at 1:31 p.m.
(4:31 p.m. E.S.T.) just 18 hours and
16 minutes after her exciting take-off
from Wheeler Field, 25 miles out of
Honolulu. Two hours after landing
she went to bed, without benefit of
negligee, in an Oakland hotel.
Is First Time
Not satisfied with two aerial trips
across the Atlantic, and a host of
other aviation honors, the 36-year-
old' flier challenged the Pacific as
has no other man or woman. She
came through after fighting a variety
of weather and giving California
watchers an uneasy three hours dur-
ing which her position was not
"It was worse than the Atlantic
flights," she said. "There was no
purpose or reason for it."
Asked about reports that she was
considering continuing on to Chica-
go or Washington, immediately she
smiled mysteriously and said:
"Well, I'll have to check the weath-
er before hopping, but I won't be go-
ing for three or four hours."
But Miss Earhart appeared pretty
tired and the circumstances discount-
ed the idea. Airport attendants said
she had left instructions not to re-
fuel her plane. Weather conditions
to the east were reported unfavor-
"I had enough fuel in my tanks to
have lasted another two hours," Miss
Earhart went on, in contrast with
the statement of Lieut. Commander
Clarence Williams indicating her sup-
ply was due to be exhausted about
the time she landed.
Surprises Crowd
For three hours California coastal
cities had been awaiting her and
when she swooped down on the air-
port she took the crowd of 5,000 by
A mighty cheer arose. The crowd
surged toward the plane and stopped
little short of its whirling propeller
"I don't want to sit down," she said
firmly when an attendant saw her
fatigue and offered her a chair.
Attendants pushed her plane into
a hangar and closed the doors against
the admiring crowd, but only after
many had succeeded in grasping her
hand and shouting words of praise
of her.
Someone mentioned that she had
not been heard from for a consider-
able time before landing; that there
were reports she was battling fog,
had strayed from her course; that
her gasoline was running low before
she reached the coast. They asked
if she had been worried.
"Worried?" she echoed. "Oh, I
thought I would like to have the sight
of land a couple of times."
