Fitzgerald Hits
At Legislative
Council Group
Governor Declares He Will
Recommend Elimination
Of 'Political Football'
LANSING, Dec. 14.--RP)-Gov.
Fitzgerald announced today he will
renew his demand that the legisla-
tive council be abolished.
The governor said he will recom-
mend to the legislature that the body,
made up of selected members of the
legislature, be eliminated because it
has "become a political football"
maintained at the expense of the tax-
payers. Recent declarations by mem-
bers and others proposing investiga-
tions far outside the generally ac-
cepted scope of the council, were be-
lieved to have influenced the governor
in his decision to renew his attack.
In the past few weeks it has sug-
gested that almost every controversial
issue be "referred to the legislative
council for investigation." Congress-
nmgn Albert J. Engel, of Lake City,
charged in a speech that Frank D.
McKay was an influence in state gov-
ein ent. Gov. Fitzgerald asked for
specific allegations and Engel replied
that the legislative council should in-
"Fdrum For Orators"
Charges whirled around the state
liquor control commission. Speaker
George A. Schroeder, chairman of
the council, was quoted as saying the
council would investigate the com-
mission. Schroeder later claimed he
ws misquoted. The proposal to have
the council investigate liquor activ-
ites, however, emphasized the promi-
inence into which a supposedly ad-
visory body was being pushed.
"I have no doubt that when the
council was organized by Speaker
lartin R. Bradley he had faith it
would accomplish much,' the gover-
nor said. "Possibly it could. But as
it is now constituted it is a forum
for political orators and an excuse
forpoliticians who have no facts, but
have a grievance. It is being sup-
ported by taxpayers' money and is
doing neither the state nor the tax-
payers any good."
No Report, Says Governor
The governor said the council did
not make a report to the last reg-
ular session of the legislature, al-
though it was created to "recommend
constructive legislation to the legis-
lature." An effort was made to re-
peal the act providing for the coun-
cil. The bill passed the senate but
was killed in the house where Demo-
crats, plus a small group of Repub-
lican insurrectionists, had control.
The idea of Speaker Bradley and
other proponents of the plan was that
the council would function in the
interim between sessions to study leg-
islative matters and submit a pro-
gram to the legislature. The gov-
ernor claimed the council has wan-
dered far afield and has completely
overlooked its mission.
The governor said he thought the
council might be a good thing if it
would sit during sessions and act as
a governor to prevent the flood of
pet and nuisance bills which occupy
weeks of the time of the legislature.

Union Tradition Is
Broken As Ludwig
Mutters 'Symbolic'
Because Emil Ludwig insisted on
it, Josephine McLean, women's editor
of The Daily violated a sacred tra-
dition Thursday night and walked
through the front door of the Union,
it became known yesterday.
Miss McLean and two' Daily re-
porters accompanied Mr. Ludwig back
to the Union after he had concluded
his address in Hill Auditorium. The
party was completely wrapped up
in conversation and approached the
Union portals without thinking of the
tradition that forbids women enter-
ing there.
When they had walked up the
steps, it suddenly dawned on Miss
McLean. "I can't go in here," she pro-
tested to the biographer.
"Why not?" asked Ludwig in sur-
prise. "But of course." And gently
but firmly he pushed the blushing
women's editor through the front
When told the reasoni for Miss Mc-
Lean's hesitation, Mr. Ludwig thought
he was being kidded. "No! It can't
be," he gasped. And when he saw
his guides were serious about it, he
said, half aloud, half to himself, "It
must be symbolic."
Demands Court
Appearance f
32 Defendants
DETROIT, Dec. 14. -O(P) -Judge
W. McKay Skillman prepared to take
steps today to keep the 32 defendants
in the court room during progress
of the recount fraud vote-stealing
trial in recorder's court.
The trial came to a mandatory halt
Friday when two defendants, William
J. Wilson and Lester Currier, were
not present. Wilson was at his hotel,
ill, while Currier had reported for
work in an automobile body factory
when told a position was open for
Judge Skillman was to ask Currier
for an explanation today. Several
days ago he warned defendants and
attorneys that he might raise the
amount of bond on defendants if they
did not appear in court.
Representative Chester P. Edmun-
son (Dem.) of Manistee, testified Fri-
day that although no one had been
authorized to employ anyone, be-
tween 60 and 70 persons were ready
to go to work last Dec. 27 when the
five-man legislative recount commit-
tee came to Detroit from Lansing.
The recount, in which the stte
charges an attempt was made to
"count in" Democratic candidates
over Republicans, later was declared
void by the state supreme court.

Saturday classes have had no no-
ticeable effect on freshman grades,
as far as could be determined by
Prof. Phillip E. Bursley, director of
Orientation, who announced recently
that while freshman grade reports
had been more complete this year
than ever before, the general average
showed no marked variation either
upward or downward from previous
The only way na which the topic
of Saturday classes had entered into
the reports in any way, he said, was
in the comment of one professor to
the effect that a freshman had the
"Saturday habit' in bolting classes.
Professor Bursley further com-
miented that, had there been any
marked change in grades as a result
of Saturday classes, it would not have
been as apparent in the freshman
grades, since the new students had
in no way been "exposed" to any
other system than that of compul-
sory Saturday couises..
On the subject of bolts, no effort
has been made to secure data on the
relative attendance at the Saturday
meetings and at meetings during the
rest of the week. Prof. Wilber M.
Humphreys, assistant dean of the
literary college, to whose office re-
ports of excessive absences are made,
said that no such distinction had
been made in recording the reports,
and that in most cases the profes-
sors had not even mentioned the
dates of the "cuts."
Saturday sections need not meet
Dec. 21 because of the Regents' rul-
ing to the effect that the University
will close Friday night, Dec. 20, ac-
cording to Prof. Daniel L. Rich, sec-
retary of the faculty of the literary
college. Professor Rich stated that
the University Council had sent the
Regents a recommendation that the
official date of closing be moved to
Saturday night, but that the Regents
had declined to make the change.
The automobile ban, correspond-
ingly, will be suspended at 12 noon,
Friday, Dec. 20, it was announced by
Kirkland E. Fisher of the office of the
Dean of Students.
May Convene
In Cleveland
NEW YORK, Dec. 14.-(IP)-Al-
though Chicago stands out as a pop-
ular choice, it as learned today on
high authority, political reasons may
cause selection of Cleveland as, the
1936 Republican convention city when
the party's national, committee meets
in Washington Monday.
"I'd place my bet on Cleveland,"
one of the most prominent of east-
ern party leaders said before he left
for Washington last midnight. He
declined to be quoted by name.
"Kansas City wants the convention
and would be an ideal place. But it
is regarded politically as the metrop-
olis of Gov. Alf Landon of Kansas.
Other potential candidates have ob-
jections to Kansas City.
"These are not based on any in-
fluence the 'home town' crowds might
have on the delegations, but rather
on the feeling that the selection of
Kansas City might seem to reflect a
sentiment for Landon in the national
"From what I've heard, popular
sentiment favors Chicago. But the
argument held against Kansas City
could be held against Chicago because
its the home city of Col. Krank Knox.

Upholding the trend of efficiency'
in mass production, the University
Hospital serves annually over 2 mil-
lion people, according to Miss Mabel
MacLachlan, director of dietetics.
There are special dinning rooms for
the 80 internes on the medical staff;
a special cafeteria for the nurses to-
taling about 450; then the hundreds
and hundreds of sick patients who
are carefully and according to strict
diets fed in the private rooms and
wards; and there is a large commer-
cial cafeteria which feeds about 850
persons a day -including staff memu-
bers, visitors, workers, and students.
Miss MacLachan stated that the
dietetics department also handles the
feeding of the patients in the con-
valescent hospital. In all these dif-
ferent dinning rooms, bed rooms, and
cafeterias 191,176 people were fed
during the month of October this
year. This is one of the highest
months on record, she added.
"The most startling figures of all,
are those of the separate foods used
in each meal," Miss MacLachlan re-
ported. "In one meal of meat, po-
tatoes, a vegetable and a salad, if, for

instance rt bf was served, 688
pounds w oul bue nee.+ If the meat
was liver and i on, 220 pounds of
liver and 120 pouds of con would
be used. Fifepn bse otatoes
would be ufliiient.
