More than 2,000 students will raise
their voices in the singing of tradi-
tional Michigan songs at 7:30 p.m.
today, on the steps of the General Li-
brary, when the Band and the Glee
Club officially open the first All-
Campus Sing with the Maize and Blue
marching song, "Varsity."
Committeemen in charge of the
event last night said that sororities
fraternities, and dormitories had
voiced the intention of attending the
sing en masse, while the Union,
through its daily bulletin, yesterday
urged all students to attend.
The band, under the direction of
Bernard Hirsch, '36SM, will leave
Morris Hall at 7:20 p.m. and will
march to the bandstand erected in
front of the Library steps. All stu-
dents are requested by George Duffy,
'35, chdirman of the committee on
arrangements, to be on the Library
steps promptly at 7:30 p.m.
The band will then play a number,
after which the Glee Club, conducted
by Prof. David G. Mattern of the
music school, will lead the assembly
in the first group of songs consisting
of "Varsity," "'Tis of Michigan We
,Sing," and "I Want To Go Back To

band will play another number, after
which the Glee Club will again lead
the assembly in the singing of "Col-
lege Days," "When Night Falls, Dear,"
"Friars Song," "The Victors," and
"The Yellow and Blue." The last
two numbers are to be accompanied
by the band.
Although throughout the history of
the University there has always been
some form of a traditional sing' held
yearly, it is believed that this year
r marks the first attempt to include
the whole student body in the tradi-

conditions did not permit the holding
of the sing, it would be .postponed

New Stars Are
Violet Heming And Toni
Powers To Play Leads li
Tom Powers and Violet Heming,
distinguishedrNew York stars, were
added to the 1935 Dramatic Season
roster of celebrities last night, ac-
cording to Robert Henderson, direc-
tor, who is now in Milwaukee produc-
ing the Civic Festival there.
They will play the leads in the cur-
rent Broadway comedy success, "The
Bishop Misbehaves," which will be the
feature of the fourth and fifth weeks
of the Season here.
Miss Heming and Mr. Powers will
be remembered in Ann Arbor for their
performances together in "There's Al-
ways Juliet," "Animal Kingdom," and
"Springtime For Henry." Mr. Hen-
derson told The Daily over the phone
last night, "It is a privilege to be
able to announce to Ann Arbor that
these favorites will return, playing
opposite each other again. It has
been worth waiting to secure them."
Thi completes the announcement
of the artists for the 1935 Season
plays except for "The Ugly Runts,"
Robert Raynold's tragedy. It is un-
derstood that attempts are being
made to secure Vivienne Giesen, the
Nun of Max Reinhardt's "The Mir-
acle," to play the difficult femi4ine
lead for this world premiere.
Gargoyle For May
What does the typicalMichigan
co-ed look like? If you have been
pondering over this ancient question,
you can find the answer at last -
in the May issue of the Gargoyle,
which will be placed on campus sale
Thursday. The scientific answer has
been found by the Gargoyle staff, who
have made a composite portrait of 12
representative co-eds. The result
combines impartially the good and
bad features of all.
The cover of this number will also
settle a burning issue, for the spirit'
of the hue and cry over radical activ-
ities has been distilled and interpreted
from the point of view of the average
Another feature will include photo-
graphs of dramatic season celebrities
who will appear here soon, which will
be released for the first time in this
issue of the Gargoyle.

TOLEDO, O., May 7-(Special)-
University of Michigan's baseball
team outhit Toledo University in a
night ball game played here tonight,
6 to 2, but lost through the wildness
of George Butler in the second in-
ning, 2 to 1.
Butler, who worked only one and
two-thirds innings, had a case of
wildness in the second frame, in
which Toledo pushedtworuns across
the plate on four walks and one in-
field hit. With two men down and
the bases loaded, Maurry Connel hit
a slow roller to short which went for
a single,driving in a run. Butler
then pitched three ballh to Sprunk
and was jerked in favor of Art Patch-
in. Patchin ran the count to three
and two and then walked in what
proved to be the winning run.
Michigan's lone tally came in the
first inning. With one down Rudness
singled to left, stole second, went to.
third when Jankowski, the catcher,
threw into center field, and scored"
on a passed ball.
Patchin went the remainder of the
game for the Wolverines and pitched"
excellent ball, allowing no runs, one,
hit, and striking out 12. He walked"
only four. Norm Lippincott, Toledo
curve ball artist, went the route and
struck out eight, keeping Michigan's"
six hits well scattered, although he
was in difficulty on several occasions."
Michigan threatened in the fourth
when Oliver lead off with a pop single
over the box. Regeczi struck out
and Oliver stole second. Teitelbaum1
,hit a flyhack .of. second :which the
shortstop apparently lost in the lights,

were left when Heyliger and Wil-
A beautiful fielding play by Hayes,
Toledo second baseman, nipped a
Michigan rally in the seventh. Wil-
liams was on third as the result of a
single, an infield out and an error,
and Rudness was on second by virtue
of a walk and a stolen base, when
Paulson came to bat. Paulson hit a,
vicious drive to the left of Hayes,
who managed to trap the ball and
threw to first for the third out.

Frank Knox, publis er of the Chicago

scientific leaders h eTtonight termed
Sen. Huey Long an Father Charles
E. Coughlin, "sen mental mission-

group of impoverished, discontented
and bewildered people to doubt the
efficacy of popular democratic insti-

The objectives of Long and Cough-

those of Washington, Hamilton, Mad-
ison, and their colleagues, when they
drafted the Constitution.
"We recognize, as we must," Col-
onel Knox declared, "the objectives
of the Coughlins 'and Longs and
Townsends and Sinclairs as whole-
some and sound, and we challenge as
we must their finances as impossible
to give these blessings without work.

enjoy true industry and thrift."

Miss Pierce will appear in the role
of Sister Gracia, a sister of charity,
who faces three great crises in her
life. The first takes place when she
is 19 years old, the second 29, and
the third 70. Because of the nature
of the order to which she belongs
she is allowed to either renew or re-
ject her vows yearly.
The first scene of the play takes
place in an asylum for old men, the
second in a home for wayward women,
and the third in an orphanage.
The English translation of the play
was written by Hawley Granville Bar-
ker, and according to Mr. Windt, di-
rector of the production, the nature
of the play demands unusual scenic

President Ruthven, Prof.
Strauss Deny Knowledge
Of His Leaving
Intention To Stay
Is First Instance Of Raid
On Staff Predicted By
Prof. Oscar James Campbell, Jr.,
of the English department was ap-
pointed professor of English at Co-
lumbia University, an Associated
Press dispatch from New York City
stated last night.
Both President Alexander G. Ruth-
ven and Prof. Louis A. Strauss, chair-
man of the English department, ex-
pressed their surprise at this informa-
tion, disclaiming any knowledge of
the acceptance"of such an appoint-
ment by Professor Campbell. Pro-
fessor Campbell, who is doing re-
search work at present at the Hunt-
ington Library at San Marino, Calif.,
could not be reached by the Associat-
ed Press last night.
President Ruthven declared that
last week he received a letter from
Professor Campbell, stating that the
noted English scholar was planning
to return to Ann Arbor in the fall
and resume his teaching duties in
the University. "I can't understand
it," said the President, when told of
the Associated Press dispatch.
Still On Faculty
"Professor Campbell is still a mem-
ber of the faculty here," asserted Pro-
fessor Straus. He said that as fari
as he knew, Professor Campbell hs
not resigned his position here and will
return to the University in the fall.
This is the first news of a Uni-
versity professor leaving for another
position since President Ruthven
pointed out that danger in a state-
ment April 20. In warning against7
a raid on the Michigan faculty as a
result of a reduced appropriation, the
President declared, "Five of the best
men on the faculty have told me with-
in the last two weeks that they will
be forced to consider other offers."
Asked if the reported appointment
of Professor Campbell to the Colum-
bia faculty was one of the instances
he referred to, President Ruthven
stated, "I can't say. I had no idea he
was taking a position there.
Attended The University
Professor Campbell, who is 56 years
old and a native of Cleveland, has
been a member of the English depart-
ment here since 1921. He attended
the University as a student during the
year 1898-1900, receiving his A. B.
degree from Harvard in 1903, and his
A.M. and Ph.D. degrees from the same
university in 1907 and 1910 respec-
tively. He has been a traveling Harv-
ard fellow at the Universities of Cop-
enhagen, Berlin, London, Paris, and
at Oxford University.
From 1904 to 1906 Professor Camp-
bell was instructor of English and
Law at the United States Naval Aca-
demy at Annapolis, and later taught
English at the University of Wiscon-
sin. Since he has been a member of
the faculty here, he was visiting pro-
fessor of English at Harvard in 1929,
and in the spring terms of 1934 and
1935 has been a research fellow at
the Huntington Library, where he is
bringing to conclusion a volume of
the history of satiric drama with spe-
cial reference to Shakespeare, on
whom he is a noted authority.

Patman Bonus Bill
Under Veto Threat
Changes In State Bonding
Limitations Proposed To
LANSING, May 7 -(/P)- Last min-
ute controversies that may involve
Michigan's participation in the gigan-
tic Federal public works program en-
gulfed the Legislature today and
Under Democrat auspices a group
of eight bills was introduced in the
House proposing sweeping changes to
amend state bonding and taxing limi-
tations to match Federal advances.
Federal authorities sent the measures
to Gov. Frank D. Fitzgerald last Feb-
ruary. He turned them over to Rep.
M. Clyde Stout, Democratic chairman
of the House ways and means com-
mittee. Stout said he received them
from the governor's office six or eight
weeks ago. They were not introduced
at once because changes in the
phraseology had to be made to make'
them conform to Michigan statutes,
Att'y-Gen. Harry S. Toy held many
of their provisions, as submitted, in
conflict with the state constitution.
Despite this, Democratic floor lead-
ers successfully blocked a resolution
fixing May 17 as the date for ending
the business session of the Legislature
on the ground the public works bill
"has to be passed" or Michigan may
be deprived of its share of PWA funds.
Governor Fitzgerald said he will "not
interfere in any way" with the pas-
sage of the bills, in spite of opinions
that they may be unconstitutional.

By 55 To 33 Vote
Solons Reject Two Other
Proposals For Payment
WASHINGTON, May 7 -(IP)- A
battering 55 to 33 ballot drove
through the Senate today the House-
approved Patman bill for cashing the
bonus with $2,201,934,000 of new
Warnings of a presidential veto
proved unavailing as three quick
votes crushed all administration op-
position, but the final line-up fell
short of the two-thirds majority
necessary to oveiride a veto.
Despite the last-minute threat of
a motion to reconsider, leaders pre-
dicted the bill would move toward
the White House tomorrow.
Leaders who had threatened that
the bill would bounce back from the
White House, promptly predicted a
veto would be sustained. But advo-
cates issued contradictory predictions.
Passage Is Swift
Colorfully - with a minimum of
talk and a maximum of speed -the
Senate reached its final action
through a process of elimination. Be-
fore crowded and noisy galleries it
first rejected the Harrison compro-
mise bonus plan, 54 to 30, and then
by a 52 to 35 vote the Vinson-Amer-
ican Legion proposal for cash pay-
ment out of ordinary Treasury funds.
The vote on final passage follows:
Democrats: A d a m s, Bachman,
Bankhead, Bilbo, Black, Bone, Bul-
ow, Byrnes, Caraway, Clark, Coolidge,

For the Bill: Norbeck, Reynolds,

nouncements were made for Gore or

playing some part in the final result,
One was a record-breaking deluge of
telegrams asking support of the Pat-
man Bill, inspired by Father Charles
E. Coughlin, of Detroit
McAdoo Makes Speech
The second was one of the few
speeches of the vote-filled day. Al-
though obviously in a mood for ac-
tion rather than talk, the Senate
listened carefully to Sen. William
G. McAdoo, California Democrat,
who rarely makes floor speeches. The
former Treasury Secretary came out
strong for the Patman Bill, holding
that there was nothing to fear from
its proposed two billion dollar issue
of new currency.

Colorful Tradition Of Senior
Canes Started 65 Years Ago
Student - Performer Fracas Is
Recalled By Coming Of Circus
By MARSHALL D. SHULMAN
Seniors of 65 years ago, already dis-
tinguishable (if not distinguished) by
their bull-dog pipes which they alone
might effect, took upon themselves
a new custom which became a Mich-
igan tradition and is this year for
the second time to be revived.
As early as 1858 the student body
was toying with the idea of making
freshmen wear pots and other such
undergraduate performances, but the
annual ruckus between the engineers
and the lawyers on the occasion of
the swingout made the faculty con-
cerned no end about seeking for some
tradition to replace it.
Thus when in 1870 the seniors
wanted to take on the colorful cane
tradition to replace the swingout, the
faculty welcomed the idea.
Performance on Cane Sunday in
M." carved around the top, with the
initials of his friends carved up and
down the stick.
In 1889 the tradition took on a real
significance. At that time, the pick-
et fence surrounding the University
was torn down to make room for ex-
pansion, and the seniors made them-
selves canes out of the pickets to
commemorate the growing Univer-
sity. Cane carrying, conveying this
feeling of loyalty to the University,
has now become a venerable ,tradi-
tion. It was in the same year, 1889,
that senior independents first began
to carry canes as well.
With a burst of Jflowery language,
The Michigan Daily in '23 predicts,
"Should Sunday turn out to be beau-4

The Lewis Bros. European Circus

being sponsored in its appearance
here by the Erwin Prieskhorn Post 46
of the American Legion, has been
heralded by blasts of publicity, and'
the whole town is well plastered with
the advance notices of the colossal,
stupendous, gigantic, tremendous,
greatest show on earth.
Reminiscences of an eventful per-
formance here many years ago were
brought forth by old timers who have
been around the town since the early
1900's. It seems that in some way a
circus that came to Ann Arbor aroused

evolved in the course of whi.ch all the
police of Ann Arbor and the vicinity,
including Ypsilanti, were embroiled.
The struggle was waged far into the
night, and as then the "Town and
Gown" feud was still a live and burn-
ing issue, there was much enthusiasm
developed on both sides. Eventually
it is believed the students won.
No definite information is available
as to just how much the students won,
but it is reported that, with the next
dawn, amazed investigators found the
police department in the hippo's cage,
and elephants scattered at random
throughout the town. The actual
circus grounds were a foreshadowing
of the Western Front on a not too
