many years it has been apparent that there was
little important differences in Republican and
Democratic beliefs. The passing years of our
crisis are continually emphasizing this fact
Therefore, we believe that voters of America
are increasingly concerned now with individuals
and not parties. Old loyalties are being aban-

elected with Republican votes nor with Demo-
The task of the politician of today, if he is to
achieve anything, is to cast off the cloak of old
allegiances in favor of one a bit less tattered and
torn. The time may not have been ripe 10 years
ago -it certainly is now.

MANY OF MICHIGAN'S Alumni are
back in Ann Arbor to participate in
Homecoming. They are back to greet their class-
mates and fraternity brothers, their friends on
the faculty and in town --they are back to try
and recapture a little of the 'glamphere' of their
We do not know what 'glamphere' is either, but
it is necessary to invent a word that means: spirit,
glamour, atmosphere, cheering at football games,
receiving a grade of E and the multitude of
things that make up one's undergraduate ex-
We wish the returning alumni every success in
their pursuit of the elusive 'glamphere.'
Today's football game --the main event, so to
speak--is an appropriate one. Many of the old
grads will recall the exciting series played with
Pennsylvania in a day gone by. The renewal of
this satisfying series pleases everyone.
Nineteen thirty-five's Wolverine team is good,
they improve every week, and, although they go
into today's battle rated by many to lose, we think
the Quakers are going to quake. If we don't win,
it's still a great day.
Alumni, the town is yours. Treat it gently,
but have a good time.

Can it be that there is a city ordinance againstc
business in this little village? The story gives no
reason for the lack of business enterprises in the
town. Unless the town is jinxed, or the trade ter-
ritory around it so limited, we can see no reason
why this is not the ideal location for several
smart college graduates. Surely the apparent
lack of competition ought to attract some of the
products of our professional schools. After all the
mere fact that 814 people are gathered togetheri
in one spot should create enough trade and indus-
try for at least one or two of these sorely needed
While Marquette has attracted much attention
because of its number of apparently unexploited
fields of endeavor, there are numerous other1
middle western towns that lack physicians, law-
years, newspapers, and business houses of various
types. If this country is to survive as a capitalistic
nation where free enterprise flourishes and prem-
iums are paid for brains and originality, the grad-
uates of our universities must look again to small
towns. If we are to carry on traditions of Yankee
ingenuity, originality, and independence which
have so colored the character of America for the
last 200 years, we must forget bigness and all
that goes with it, forget that the measure of
man's success is not in the size of his salary, but
rather in the good he can do for his community.
For those of us who still have a desire to be
our own bosses as much as possible in a highly
civilized system, we say look to the smaller town.
If this country is to continue to prosper and
grow as it did in the past, those of us who have
the training and ability should spread it out
and realize the responsibilities we have to the
country as a whole.
The Personal Touch'
(From the McGill Daily)
T HAS BEEN STRESSED FREQUENTLY in the
past by educationists and would-be educationists
that the duty of a teacher is to give more than
knowledge to his pupils -he must give part of
himself, his personality, as well. This applies to
no teacher more than to the university professor,
for his students are both intelligent enough and
eager enough to absorb whatever colour he may
throw upon his lectures beyond the mere state-
ment of facts.
The professor, in the course of his study and
teaching, has personally encountered the various
shadings of meaning and general trends of detail
that the student lacking in experience and prac-
tical knowledge in his study, appreciates. It is
therefore up to the professor to give what he can
to his students, making their courses more than
merely printed and articulated material.
No professor, it must be admitted, fails to do
this to some extent, but some, indeed, have made
the unconscious mistake of overdoing it. That is,
they colour their lectures with so much of their
own personal opinion that all element of "discus-
It is the wary and skilled university professor,
therefore, who strikes the happy medium, giving
his students the benefit of his own superior ex-
perience and stimulating activity in their own

deaths in automobile accidents in Cook County
The corresponding figure in 1934 was 1,002.

There is no slightest doubt that drunken drivers
are a menace. The question to be considered is'

whether repeal has put more of them on the

are no reliable statistics bearing directly on this
point, but the decline in the acciuent rate leaves

lectures, for the school has a four-day session.
The lectures are preceded by organ recitals, and
everybody in Connecticut, to judge by the tele-

we can do is guess:

A wagon that has yellow wheels
must stay at home with little will,
must ache to roll its yellow wheels
from Georgetown up to Hotchkissville;
from Hotchkissville to Farmington

WASHINGTON, Nov. 2.-The pros-
pect seen by the two Georgia
senators of an audience of 200,000
to hear President Roosevelt speak in p
Atlanta the day after Thanksgiving, l
nvites attention. On what is it based? c
That is a good-sized chunk of the t
population of the state. It is per-B
haps two-thirds of the population of
Atlanta. It comes within shooting
distance of the total vote cast ina
Georgia in any recent presidentialt
election. How can the Georgia sena-A
tors be sure?f
It is explained that the 200,000 fig-
ure is not just a vague estimate based
largely upon hope; but a definitea
organized program aimed at Gover-d
nor Talmadge, anti-Roosevelter-in-
chief among southern DemocratsA
since Huey Long's assassination. It
is said to be documented by seat

ings planned and already fortified byt

mobilize the crowd. The state's ownn
facilities in that respect are describeds
as exhausted. Borrowing from near-c

car and engine pools, is in progress.

to the country, according to spon-

that Governor Talmadge does not

It will be interesting to see how it
comes out, particularly what Mr.
Roosevelt has to say. Watching his
tactics both at Albany and in Wash-
ington leads to the conclusion that
the President does not favor verbally
blasting his opponents by name, par-
ticularly those within his own party.
It seems to be his method not to erect
needless barriers to a return of any
of the "new deal" fold.
Here is a case where the President
is being invited to come down and
help along a move by Democrats of
his adopted state to put the bee on
their governor in sensational fashion.
Just how will he go about it?
AT THE LYDIA MENDELSSOHN
The beautifully appealing story of
the once-obscure ccmpser Franz
Schubert is told in this Gaumont-
British production centering about
the young musician's difficulties en-
countered in construction of his un-
finished symphony in B minor. If
technical imperfections common to
most foreign-produced films and the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theater's equip-
ment are discounted, it may be said
in all sincerity that the story is flaw-
lessly told in a manner most pleas-
ing to any cinema-goer who has risen
above the Warner Brothers plane.
"Unfinished Symphony" describes
with excellent attention to detail the
tangled life of the moody, unassum-
ing Schubert. When first presented
Schubert is performing his unfin-
ished work, dedicated to Emmie (a
youthful acquaintance) at a Court
Musicale. At the very moment when
he is inspired with an ending, the
theme of which has been eluding him,
the wild laughter of Countess Ester-
hazy interrupts him and literally
drives him from the salon.
With Emmie unable to comfort him
satisfactorilySchubert leaves to ac-
cept a post as music-master, only to
find that his pupil is Countess Ester-
hazy. They fall in love when he
is infatuated by her beauty and she
by his music. Countess Esterhazy
is subsequently driven by her father
into a loveless marriage, and when
Schubert returns to her to play his
newly-completed symphony as a wed-
ding present, he is once again inter-
rupted, this time by Caroline's weep-
ing. After destroying the ending of
the symphony, he pauses on his
homeward journey at a wayward
shrine where he is inspired to com-

Apparatus Exchange: The Regents
at their meeting in March, 1927, au-
thorized an arrangement for the sale
of scientific apparatus by one depart-
ment to another, the proceeds of the
sale to be credited to the budget ac-
count of the department from which
the apparatus is transferred.
Departments having apparatus
which is not in active use are advised
to send descriptions thereof to the
University Chemistry Store, of which
Prof. R. J. Carney is director. The
Chemistry Store headquarters are in
Room 223, Chemistry Building. An
effort will be made to sell the appara-
tus to other departments which are
likely to be able to use it. In some
instances the apparatus may be sent
to the University Chemistry Store on
consignment, and, if it is not sold
within a reasonable time, it will be
returned to the department from
which it was received.
The object of this arrangement is
to promote economy by reducing the
amount of unused apparatus. It is
hoped that departments having such
apparatus will realize the advantage
to themselves and to the University
in availing themselves of this oppor-
tunity. Shirley W. Smith.
