Osborn Lands
State Polities,
Borah, G.O.P.
Former Governor Praises
Ruthven For Reinjecting
(Continued from Pagel)
"President Burton worked toward
that end, and now Ruthven is doing
a whale of a job."
He said he thought "this Unversi-
ty, my alma mater, is among the very
greatest on earth" And that is an-
other thing this unusual man ought
to know. For he has travelled
throughout the world, explored un-
known parts, and written innumer-
able volumes on his wanderings.
Little known to the present genera-
tion of college students, Governor
Osborn was, and still is, a really great
figure in Michigan. Even before he
was elected to the governorship in
1911, he was well known as a journa-
list, mining engineer, naturalist, and
regent of the University. Always pro-
gressive, always the center of a fight,
his was one of the most vigorous per-
sonalities that the State has ever
seen. A chieftan in the Republican
party, he was a leader in the Bull
Moose bolt.
A skilled naturalist, he knows the
woods by heart. He was state game
and fish warden in 1895, and one of
his outstanding achievements in the
world of nature - his discovery of
the source of the fire-fly's light-
caused a sensation in scientific
Governor Osborn started in the
newspaper business before 1880, and
it was in a fatherly sort of way that
he patted his interviewer on the back
and warned: 'Now don't make me
say anything ridiculous, son."

gents granted the request of the Uni-
versity Musical Society to use the
funds it gave for a new music school
building in the construction of the
Tower. Then the Regents contribut-
ed other funds and agreed to under-
write the Tower.
"Now our,dream is a reality," Pres-
ident Ruthven said. "Builders are
being enrolled, the site has been
picked, and the steam shovel was
moved on the ground today."
Mr. Osborn, in emphasizing the
great "sympathy for humanity" of
Dr. Burton, told of his intimate ac-
quaintance with the former president.
In conclusion, he said, this Tower
project is an Ann Arbor project, a
state project, and one in which any-
one should appoint himself a com-
mittee of one to support.

Letters Used Against Democratic Committeeman Abbott More Student

D~ecember 10, 1934.

Classlifi ed Directo1 ry

Horatio J. Abbott,.
South State Street,
Ann Arbor, Michigan..
Dear Sir:
I have reached a state mentally which prevents me any longer
from holding my tongue. I have known you since I graduated from the
University of Michigan. That was a long time ago measured in days and
years. In those days friends were friends. They did not turn into
Public Eneies over night as they do today.
I can hardly conceive of the Horatic Abbott of just a few years past
being the same person who is playing the role that the Horatio Abbott
of today is playing,. However I presume that it is necessary to show the
the old and the generations cf voters of the state of Michigan just
how it should be done.
The craven spirit of the losers of the Democratic Party in Michigan
in the last election reminds the public of the present day gangster
methods. They are doing a good job today in Lansing in showing the
young and old voters of the State why it is no longer necessary to
stuff the ballot box. It is sickening, disgusting.
Horatio, if you could get a true picture of your political and personal
status as it is reflected in the minds of your old friends today you
certainly would leave the lousy business of Dorocratic politics in
Michigan to rot.
The sorrow and misery of the people of this state mean nothing to you
and the present incumbenb of the gubernatorial chair. Hate ! Hate "
Nothing but hate will be your rewrd and epitaph. Hate 1 Disgust!
Nothing else.

in this sphere of interest. Both
sexes are greatly influenced by the
contemporary stage; one store has
discovered an immediate rise in sales
of a playright's works when his pro-
ductions are appearing in Detroit or
New York. Magazines also were de-
clared to have a subtle influence on
students; one salesman pointed to
a group whose novel reading was
dominated by "The New Yorker."
There has also been noed a trend
toward buying the popularized lay-
man editions on scientific subjects.

Michigan divers in low-board events
with the possibilities for the Wolver-

Fehsenfeld, national high and low-

Dear Ray:
Your letter written me dated December 10 came
while I was spending a week in Washington, and is therefore
unanswered until the present time.
I do not quite understand your letter5 and as
ycu state, you ?[uestion the state of your mentality in the first
paragraph, I just wonder if you are a. subject for the psycopa-
thic ward. So far as I am concerned I am no. different than I
was ten years, twenty, or thirty years ago.
To be Very candid with you, I must say that the
election in November was not entirely a disappointment to me,
because I voted for the Governorrelect myself, although he is
not on my ticket.
If you are going to ccntinue to be so distressed
about me I suggest that' you forget that you ever knew me and
let it go at that.

Attacks On Abbott
(Continued from Page 1)
questioned about Horton, and he pro-
fessed not to know him. When it was
pointed out that in the letter he had
called Horton by his first name, he
said, "I don't remlember him. I call
everybody by their first name."
Asked if he believed Frank Murphy,
now high commissioner to the Phil-
ippines, would run for governor this
fall, he said that in his talk with*
Roosevelt in Washington two weeks
ago, he had learned that the Presi-
dent was planning to rring Murphy
back this year. Abbott believed, how-
ever, that he would be used by the
Democrats as a trouble-shooter in the
East, to win back the Irish element of
any following the Al Smith wing of
the party may attract, rather than as
a Michigan gubernatorial candidate.
(Abbott added that he had also
learned in his talk with the President
that the proposed bridge over the
Straits of Mackinac to St. Ignace in
the upper peninsula, advocated by

former Governor and Regent Chase
Osborn who spoke at the Burton Tow-
er banquet here last night, was al-
most certain to be approved.
Lacy told The Daily when called in
Detroit last night that he believed
the letter to be authentic. "I think
the letter is a sufficient commentary
upon itself, and I don't think Abbott
supported the ticket."
Asked if he believed that Abbott
had made a private bolt of the party
on the vote, in disgruntlement over
the failure of Comstock to be renom-
inated, Lacy answered, "I'm a little
surprised at the letter. He (Abbott)
sent me a telegram after my nomina-
tion which said: 'Congratulations.
Let's pull together and win.' I see
he didn't do it, and I guess that's
"What's more, I don't think he
supported Lehr or any of the other
candidates for Congress."
