all-important series, and the spec-

Must Sweep Series
Michigan, already two down to the
rampant Gophers as a result of twin
shutouts in Minneapolis a month
ago, will be cnompelled to sweep both
tonight's and Saturday's games to
tie for the Big Ten title which they
won last year.
Facing tremenaous odds in con-
coding the Gopherd' double man
power, Lowrey's eight man squad
will be called upon for every ounce
of their fighting courage. Sixty-min-

must be tonight, and each man must

scoring trio of Vic Heyliger, Gib

While Lowrey's strategy will con-
sist of working Jack Merrill and
Fritz Radford into the game so as
to give his starting forwards as much
relief as possible, Armstrong has a
second forward line which is prac-
tically as potent as the starting one.
Michigan's two defensemen, Cap-

will be called upon to play the en-

nothing would please the pair better
than to thrash the invaders. Both
David and Simpson come from north-

the Gophers were especially sour

Norman Thomas, America's Num-

here by the Faculty-Citizens Com-
mittee of the University.
Mr. Thomas' third speech of the
day, at 8:15 p.m. in Hill Auditorium,
on "A Program for Our Times," is
recognized as the most important by
his sponsors. A 25 cent admission,
will be charged for the speech. He
will be introduced in Hill Auditoriumj
by Prof. I. L. Sharfman, chairman
of the economics department.
To Hold Forum
At 1:30 p.m. today, Mr. Thomas
will address students of Ann Arbor
High School in the auditorium of thej
Methodist Church, at Washington
and State Streets. At 4 p.m., he will

Points Out The Possibility
Of Future Lawsuits On
Legality Of Act
Despite the favorable decision of
the Supreme Court Monday, Dean
Henry M. Bates of the Law School
pointed out yesterday that the con-
stitutionality of the Tennessee Val-
ley Authority is still far from set-
The majority opinion, read by
Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes,
dealt only with the right of the Fed-
eral Government to sell power it gen-
erates incidental to a constitutional
function, the dean said in an inter-
view, and mentions not at all one of
the most important functions of the
TVA -its use as a "yardstick" in
measuring electricity rates. He ex-
pressed the opinion that "further
questions involving the constitution-
ality of the TVA act would arise."
Majority Splits
The majority split on the question
of whether or not the case, brought
by stockholders of the Alabama Pow-
er Co., was "justiciable," Dean Bates
explained. The opinion of the court,
held by Chief Justice Hughes and As-
sociate Justices Willis Van Devanter,
George Sutherland and Pierce But-
tler, agreed that the stockholders did
have a case and had a right to con-
test the authority of the government
to buy power and transmission lines

from their company. The concurring
opinion of the so-called "liberal" jus-
tices, Owen J. Roberts, Louis D.
Brandeis, Harlan F. Stone and Ben-
jamin N. Cardozo, although agreeing
that the Government has the right
to sell the power it generated, held
the stockholders' case was not "jus-
Court Follows Precedent
Justice James C. McReynolds, in
his dissent, agreed with the Chief
Justice's opinion that the case was
properly one for the Supreme Court,
Dean Bates said, but held that the
government had no right to dispose
of its electric power on the market.
The Court, in upholding the TVA,
really reasserted an opinion it once
before set forth, the dean continued.
He saw the recent suit as very similar
to the case of the United States ver-
sus the Chandler-Dunbar Co., in
1913, when the court held that the
Federal Government has the right to
dispose of excess water in navigable
rivers, which under the Constitution,
the Government controls.
In the TVA decision, Dean Bates
declared, what the Supreme Court
said amounted to this:
(1) That the stockholders of the
Alabama Power Co., did have a jus-
ticiable case, and that the Court ac-
cordingly had jurisdiction;
(2) And thatgunder acts passedtby
Congress during the World War, the
Government had the authority to
build the Wilson Dam and to dis-
pose of the water not necessary for
navigation, the falling water owned
by the government from which it
generated power. In other words, the
government has, the Court held, the
right under the constitution to dis-
pose of its own property.
Contentions Valid
Although Dean Bates emphasized
that the court in no way re-examined
the statutes and confined its decision
to the case at hand, he explained
that the four justices agreeing on the
majority opinion decided that the
Government's contentions were valid.
These contentions were:

Michigan politics took on a nation-

Donald of Ann Arbor, vice-chairman

Conferring in 'Washington with

in an effort to hurry up postmaster-

territory, including one in Milan, Ab-

ference there of four representatives
of the state central committee on
"party harmony."
Consulted By Leaders
According to reports, Abbott did not
take a decisive part in the confer-
ence, but was consulted by the men
taking part. They were Rep. George
G. Sandowski (Dem., Mich.), leader
of Michigan democrats in the House,
Speaker George A. Schroeder of the
Michigan house of representatives,
and Don Canfield and ','incent
The conference was oescribed by
Abbott as the usual meeting held for
the furthering of cooperation between
national, state, and political elements
of the party. He had nothing new
to report on the rumor circulating
currently in Washington that he will
be replaced as national committee-
man, other than that "there seems

Coal Consumption
Proves January

So Hot

Confirming the suspicions of most
amateur meteorologists and other res-
idents of Ann Arbor, the buildings

proved that last month was just about
the coldest January in recent years.
If the figures for the coal con-y
sumption in the University power-
house are taken as indicative of the
weather conditions, there isn't any
question. Last month the depart-
ment found that nearly 12 per cent

Dr. Bell Issues Warning
As Toboggan Accidents
For 1936 Rise
The condition of Dorothy Goebel,
'39, Detroit, who received a frac-
tured skull and was badly shaken up
in a toboggan crash in the Arboretum
Wednesday afternoon was described
as being very satisfactory by Hos-
pital officials last night.
Dr. Albert C. Kerlikowske, chief
resident physician, stated late last
night that Miss Goebel was "much
better." He did not say if she had
regained complete consciousness, but
said that he understood Miss Goebel
did speak to Dr. Peet, famous brain
surgeon, early yesterday morning.
Concurrent with the reports of the
accident, a warning to all students
participating in winter sports was is-
sued by Dr. Margaret Bell, director of
physical education for women. There
have been two broken legs, a broken
back, a fractured clavicle and many
other injuries incurred by students
during the 1935-36 school year.
The accident in which Miss Goebel
was seriously hurt occurred when
an eleven-foot toboggan on which
she and her two companions, Eliza-
beth B. Henderson, '38, and Mada-
line Meyers, '39, were riding. Miss
Meyers was not in the Hospital yes-
terday and only suffered a bad scalp
laceration which was not considered
serious. Miss Henderson was not in-

Miss Webb was thought to be suf-

preliminary diagnosis, but the X-
rays showed that she had fractured
one of the vertebra.
A. Virginia Weidlein, '38, and Carl
M. Post, '38, who accompanied the
injured, were released from the
