100 Years Old February
22; Graduated From
Oldest Living Graduate Of
Any University Dies In
Dr. John Parker Stoddard, the
oldest University alumnus and the
oldest college graduate in the United
States, died at the age of 100 yester-
day at his home in Muskegon.
Dr. Stoddard was the last living
member of the class of 1859, and
also the oldest graduate of Albion
College. He observed his one hun-
dredth anniversary Feb. 22.
He was always keenly interested in
the University, and took pride in
watching it grow from the 430 stu-
dents of whom he was one to its
present size. He was noted as a
physician, being a frequent contribu-
tor to medical journals.
Dr. Stoddard Was stricken with a
paralytic stroke Tuesday and never
regained consciousness. He had been
in ill health since his last birthday,
when he managed to attend a ban-
quet given in Muskegon in his honor.
University officials united yesterday
to pay tribute to memory of the cen-
tury-old graduate. "The death of
Dr. Stoddard is a saddening shock to
the University of Michigan and its
alumni, of whom he was our oldest
representative and our only centen-
arian," said President Ruthven. "He
had lived a long and useful life and
well deserved the honors which were
paid to him in his old age by this
institution and its graduates. His
passing marks the breaking of one of
the few links still remaining between,
the University of Michigan of Presi-
dent Tappan's day and the institu-
tion of the twentieth century."
"He was a very fine and lovable
character," declared T. Hawley Tap-
ping, general secretary of the Alumni
Association, of Dr. Stoddard. "He
was a man of whom Michigan could
be proud because of the wonderful life
And Emory J. Hyde, president of
the Alumni Association, termed Dr.
Stoddard's death "a great loss to the
University. He was a man of great
character," he said. "Michigan was
proud of him as alumnus, for he con-
nected the past with the present. His
death comes as a great loss to the
University and the alumni body."
Dr. Stoddard was born at Jackson
in 1835. After studying at Albion and
the University, he became a school
teacher and was principal of the East
Side Union School of Jackson for four
months. Later he taught rural
Began Medical Career
In 1864 he entered Bellevue Medi-
cal College, determined to become a
physician. He began his career as a
doctor in Albion ,where "Practice
was good but collections were only
fair." Because of that, he moved to
the then bustling lumbering town of
Frank M. Stoddard, the aged doc-
tor's only son, died here in 1889, and
two years later Dr. Stoddard moved
to Florida. After returning to Mus-
kegon, from where the family moved
to Missoula, Mont., Mrs. Stoddard,
the former Harriet E. Mills of Ypsi-
lanti, died in 1916. Their only daugh-
ter, Grace, died in 1919.
Thus left alone, retired from his
practice, Dr. Stoddard moved again
to Muskegon, where he lived among
his "dearest friends" and reflected
on the world in which he had lived

King George May Return
To Native Country After
LONDON, Oct. 11. - (A') - Former
King George II of Greece was in-
formed officially today of the over-
throw of the Greek republic and the
vote of the national assembly for
restoration of the monarchy, but his
aide-de-camp said the former king's,
future course was uncertain.
Questioned about reports in Athens
that George was ready to return the
first week in November, Maj. Lovides,
his aide, said:
"Well, I don't know. That might
be true. I am afraid I can't con-
firm it just the same. Fverything
is Uncertain and depends on what
they do in Athens."
ATHENS, Oct. 11.- (P) - Greece's
new Royalist Government issued a
proclamation to the people today
calling former King George, for 12
years in exile, "the father and pro-
tector of all Greeks."
The statement was signed by Gen.
George Kondylis, "the Little Cor-
poral" and minister of war who seized
the reins of the Government in a
sudden coup d'etat yesterday which
dealt a death blow to the Republic.
Athens newspapers issued special
editions this afternoon asserting that
George would return to Greece the
first week in November and already,
has his baggage packed. The Greek
minister to Great Britain, the news-,
papers asserted, called upon the for-
mer monarch to congratulate him.,
In his message Kondylis made a
warm bid for the support of Crete,
old stronghold of former Premier
Euletherios Venizelos, who led a re-i

CHICAGO, Oct. 11. - (P)-Wil-
liam Leinnert, a breezy taxi driver,
claimed the spotlight today of the
trial of Mandeville W. Zenge for' the
mutilation slaying of Dr. Walter J.
Bauer with his story of hearing the
defendant admit the crime.
Under questioning by Prosecutor
Charles S. Dougherty, Leinnert re-
lated that he made the acquaintance
of the young Missouri farmer five
days before the emasculation of his
love rival and was told by him a few
hours after the crime:
"I didn't mean to kill him. It's
the fault of the doctors over at the
hospital. If they had given him three
quarts of blood he wouldn't have
The main points of Leinnert's story
-announced in advance as the cli-
mactic testimony in the State's effort
to send Zenge to the electric chair-
went unchallenged in cross question-
May Plead Insane
But defense counsel, who had in-
sisted on a jury not adverse to an in-
sanity defense, again indicated their
intention of raising such a plea for
their client, when Joseph Roach, of
the Zenge defense, asked Leinnert:
"You told Zenge, 'Boy, you must
be crazy." (This was after Leinnert
said that he had read of the crime
in the papers and at once suspected
his new-found pal and erstwhile pas-
"You must have thought a man
who would do that would have to be
insane?" suggested Roach.
"It was just slang," was Leinnert's
answer. "I often use that expression."
Met Before Slaying
The cab driver said that he first
met Zenge in Chicago five days be-
fore the slaying and that Zenge in-
quired then about places to hide out
as he said "he was hot" because he
had amputated a man in St. Louis
such as the State charged he subse-
quently did to cause Bauer's death.
On the night following Dr. Bauer's
death Leinnert, who had again met
Zenge, said he arranged with police
to trap him.
Earlier testimony had been aimed
at a question which the defense was
expected to raise - that the crime
might not have been committeed in
Cook County (Chicago).
Dr. Davis Kaneko, resident physi-
cian at Jackson Park Hospital, where
the dying doctor was taken, and
members of the hospital staff, testi-
fied that Bauer had been brought to
them within a few minutes after the
crime was committed.

Sees Traditional Spirit

"Michigan spirit" has returned to
More than 5,000 frenzied students
proved it was more than a legend last
night as they shouted an exuberant
chorus "Beat Indiana!" at a gigantic
testimonial bonfire, the first outdoor
pep rally in football history.
A huge crowd of students and
townspeople, seated on a hillside
overlooking the South Ferry Field
bonfire, had forgotten the over-
whelming defeat suffered at the
hands of Michigan State last week.
They thought only in terms of to-
day's gridiron battle with Indiana.

If the spirit of this rally is carried

Cappon left the rally with a message,
to carry to the squad, a message so
full of inspiration as to help push
the ball over from the Indiana 10-
yard line and to hold the opposition
in a stirring goal-line stand.
Snake Dance Rcalls Champions
After the "Fighting Hundred" and
the Varsity cheerleaders had led the
victory-mad throng in songs and
cheers, the crowd zig-zagged up State

Man' Is In There
With Drum Today
Heroes are made, not born. But
it's not so much fun when all you
get out of it is an awful pain in the
back. Just ask Tink Hill, the unsung
hero of the campus. He knows all
about it. He carries the bass drum
in the Michigan -band.
The drum major gets columns of
publicity. Everybody can see the
director. And even the insignificant
piccolo player is conspicuous by his
squeak. But poor Tink, the Band's
Forgotten Man, doesnt get any. He
can't even be seen for the drum.
And it's a shame, for Tink has de-
voted his life to his art. In his own
words "he has studied under the best
masters of drum-carrying in Europe."
He has mastered the deft art of bal-
ancing while stepping high, so he ad-
mits. He can twist and twirl and
pivot on a dime without causing the
drummer to miss an eighth of a beat.
He is the very picture of rythmn as
he waddles under his load down the
field. The very drum seems to blend
into his back.
But despite all of his perfection,
Tink had to resort to stealth to get
his job. Last year the band was
given the opportunity of attending
a free show, so Tink, crept into the
band house, picked up some instru-
ments, and stealthily followed the
band to the show.
From that day he was the logical
man for the drum-carrying job. Tink,
whose full name is Warren E. Hill,
hopes "to be able to balance the
drum with one hand and blow a pic-
colo (for recognition) with the other
