gregation is out to prove that they
have finally hit the winning stride
that was predicted for them before
the season opened. However, no
Zuppke-coached team was ever a set-
up for anyone and with Bob Cooper
and Fred Janke both on the Wolver-

the fray the favorites.
The Illini worked out in the sta-
dium yesterday afternoon and gave
indications that they are keyed up to
a high pitch for today's skirmish.
Although they will be far outweighed
by the Wolverines, Illinois expects its

F.D.R.'s Supreme Court Views

with a particularly loud bang last
night as more than 3,000 students
gathered in Hill Auditorium and
screamed and shouted and sang their
support of Michigan's rejuvenated
football team, giving Coach Kipke
and Captain Matt Patanelli a mes-
sage of hearty support to carry to the
team at Plymouth.
Led by Fred F. Wiest, their new
drum-major, the Fighting Hundred
worked the crowd into a roaring spirit
of enthuisasm with their lively rendi-
tion of The Victors, heralded by the
blare of trumpets, and accompanied
by the ringing notes of the glocken-
Kipke Addresses Crowd
After a roaring volley of cheers
led by Tommy Sullivan, '37, Coach
Kipke addressed the crowd briefly.
Predicting a victor.y tomorrow, he
said that the team has a new, hap-
pier, more confident spirit, and
thanked the student body and The
Daily for their unwavering support
through the first four weeks of the
season, "when the team most needed
their support."
Captain Patanelli then rose to give
assurance of victory against Illinois
tomorrow. While the band played
Varsity, and the crowd sang, he and
Coach Kipke rushed off the stage,
headed for "a good night's sleep" in
Then, again to the tune of The Vic-
tors, the band paraded down the
street, big yellow and blue letters on
the bells'of the tubas spelling out a
triumphant "MICHIGAN." Behind
them followed the crowd, shouting
defeat for Illinois, and revenge for
last year's loss.
Alumni Arrive
Meanwhile, into Ann Arbor, happy
with pre-game spirit, poured alumni
to celebrate Homecoming. The doors
of fraternity houses were opened wide
and many of the houses were bright
with the decorations which will be
judged tomorrow for the Goldman
Brothers Cup. The cup was awarded
to the Sigma Chi house last year at
the time of the Pennsylvania game.
The Board of Regents yesterday
approved the University Band trip to
Philadelphia on Nov. 7 to play at
the Quaker game.
'Public Address
System Voted
For Auditorium
Installation of a new public address
system and a motion picture projec-
tion system in Hill Auditorium at a
total cost of $7,000, will begin imme
diately, it was announced yesterday
following approval of the project by
the Board of Regents in their second
meeting of the year.
The proposed change in the size of
diplomas from 14 by 17 inches to
approximately 6 by 8 inches was also
voted by the Regents for all schools
and colleges except the Medical
School, the Dental School and the
Law School.
A tentative allotment of $256,400
was voted for the 1937 Summer Ses-
sion. This allotment is subject to
revision when the income for next
year is determined.
Martin J. Orbeck, now supervisor
of WPA projects in northern Mich-

committee of the Union having con-
tributed $1,000 last Tuesday.
Dean of Students Joseph A. Bur-
sley stated yesterday that the sum of
$500 was left by the Hop committee
of the class of 1936-37 after all obli-
gations had been met with the stip-
ulation that itbe used in the further-
ance of a dormitory fund.
The gift of $1,000 which the Union
presented to the men's Dormitories
project earlier this week was left to
the Union in 1935 by Laura V. Crocker
of Cincinnati with the request that
the fund be used in conjunction with
some worthy student project.
Goal Is $70,000
The goal of the Committe on Men's
Dormitories is to raise $70,000 by the
end of the current year in order that
the first unit of a dormitory quad-'
rangle for freshmen men can be built
within a year, Gilbert Tilles, '37, said.
The Committee on Men's Dormi-I
tories is composed of representatives
from important organizations on
campus. Tilles, chairman of the ex-
ecutive committee for the project,
which was appointed by the Union
board of directors, said yesterday that
important groups on the University
campus are being contacted and in-
formed of their right to representa-
tion on the committee. This is being
done, Tilles added, in order that the
committee be composed of as rep-
resentative a group as possible.
The University has lent its sup-
port to the movement, both Presi-
dent Ruthven and Dean Bursley hav-
ing stated that they were glad to see
such a movement arise from the stu-
dent body. President Ruthven and
Dean Bursley have offered their co-
operation and will support the proj-i

Speaking in the Whitney theatre
before the largest crowd that has at-
tended a political meeting in Wash-

tenaw County since Woodrow Wil-
son was here, High Commissioner
Murphy declared that the vested in-
terests of the country want Landon
elected because he is not a leader.
Tells Of Kansas Budget
"The Republicans say that he is
capable for the presidency because he
balanced the budget of Kansas,"
Murphy shouted, "but do you know
that the budget of Kansas is the size
of the budget of the Board of Edu-
cation of the city of Detroit and one-
fourth the size of the one that Joe
Hayden and I balanced in the Phil-
ippine Islands after our Republican
predecessors had failed to do so?"
Murphy spoke of an American citi-
zen who had declared he would go to
Canada if Roosevelt were reelected.
"We can compare this attitude with
that of those people who left America
at the time after the Revolution when
the Declaration of Independence and
Constitution was being framed," he
went on to say. "They were dis-
appointed with the way things were
being run, and returned home to
England where they found themselves
in a more favorable position. Thisj
period of our government was a New
Deal politically also," Murphy shout-
ed. They were trying to do the same
thing then as President Roosevelt is
attempting to do now, he declared.
"The criticizers of the New Deal
say that the stand Roosevelt has
taken against the depression is not
American," Murphy stated, "but
isn't, it American to save our people,
to pull industry out of the mires of
depression, to save the American
banks and to build hospitals and
Defends Administration Spending
"What's wild about the adminis-
tration's spending?" he asked. "Only
eight billion dollars have been spent
in this war against depression. Na-
tions of the world do not consider
eight billions a great sum in fighting

Prof. Wesley H. Maurer of the jour-
nalism department, who favors the.
reelection of President Roosevelt, yes-
terday scoffed at the Republican con-
tention "that the Constitution will
be threatened" if the New Deal is re-
turned Nov. 3.
"What really worries the Repub-
licans," he charged, "is that they
surmise Mr. Roosevelt will, in his next
term, nominate to the Supreme Court
judges whose jurisprudence is of the
modern school, who would tend to
interpret the Constitution in terms
of a democracy rather than in terms
The Daily attempted to run
two interviews, similar to these,
each day this week on an issue of
the national campaign, one from
a professor favoring the election
of Governor Landon and one
from a professor favoring the re-
ele:ion of President Roosevelt.
Because of reticence on the part
of partisan members of the!fac-
ulty to express their views, we are
unable to present any others than
of an industrial oligarchy, who would
choose from among the mass of con-
flicting opinions of the court the lines
of reasoning best suited to our needs
as seen by a liberal Congress and
chief executive.
"That surmise," he declared, "is
well grounded."
Professor Maurer said he has "no
doubt that the justices Mr. Roose-
velt will nominate, should there be
vacancies, and a Democratic Congress
will confirm, will be justices of the
schools of jurisprudence that will
draw more from philosophy in its
decisions than from law and prece-
"And in such appointments," he
said, "the constitutional interpreta-
tions of the reactionaries are likely
not to be given the deference and re-
spect heretofore shown them. It is
not the Constitution which is threat-
ened," he maintained; "it is the-in-
terruption of the reactionary line of
"The Constitution," Professor Mau-
rer admitted, "is generally conceded
as adequate, although revision of it
might offer certain advantages. The
Supreme Court as an institution is

Because Prof. Paul M. Cuncannon
of the political science department be-
lieves that President Roosevelt's at-
titude toward the Supreme Court and
the Constitution is the most vital is-
sue of this campaign, he will cast his
vote Nov. 3 for Governor Landon, the
Republican nominee.
"In all probability," he pointed out,
"the next President of the United
States will have five appointments
to the Supreme Court. Roosevelt's
attitude toward the fundamental doc-
Itrince of judicial review is in gen-
eral a hostile one," he continued,
"and some of his appointments to
lower Federal courts have been men'
of inferior quality, made either be-
cause of politics or because of their
agreement with the New Deal phil-
"Thus," according to Professor
Cuncannon, "if President Roosevelt
is reelected, I am afraid that he will
fill vacancies on the Supreme bencld,
with men who are not of the best cal-
ibre and who can be expected to give
any benefit of doubt as to the consti-
tutionality of a New Deal legislationj
to the New Deal."
In his opinion, "the essence of our
system of government is the exercise
of judicial review by the United
States Supreme Court," and anything
that would weaken that, such as the
appointment of justices who would
be influenced by motives other than
the desire to uphold the constitu-
tion, he feels, would be undesirable.'
"Our situation," he said, "is not like
that in England, where the legisla-
tive body is supreme, and giving Con-
gress power to pass on the constitu-
tionality of its own acts would de-
stroy our system of government."
"Governor Landon, on the other
hand," Professor Cuncannon de-
clared, "can be counted on to pre-
serve the existing system. He has
made his position on that issue clear.
He stands four-square, and his elec-
tion would bring no such danger."
Although Professor Cuncannon ad-
mits that President Roosevelt "has
never committed himself directly on

Governor Landon won The Daily's
presidential poll of faculty members
by five votes out of 591 ballots, final

The final tabulation gave Landon
276.votes to 271 for President Roose-

candidate, 10 for Earl Browder, Com-
munist candidate, and one for Wil-

120 the 471 votes cast in the 1932 poll.
The outcome of the poll was in
doubt until the last vote was counted
late yesterday. Roosevelt held a 14-
vote lead after balloting Thursday,
but it was wiped-out by ballots from
the School of Music and the Medical

Landon also led in the count of
faculty members in "Who's Who" by
a vote of 37 to 22. In this group Tho-
mas received two votes, Lemke one,
and Browder none.
The Republican candidate received
his biggest vote in the College of En-
gineering, where almost 100 ballots
were cast. The dental school went
heavily Republican, voting 14 to 3 for
The Medical school, the last to be
counted, swung the election to Lan-
don when the vote stood 263 to 262,
favoring Roosevelt. The count in
the school was 14 to 8. The School
of Musicvoted for Landon by a two
to one majority.
The science departments of the
literary college also went heavily
Landon with few exceptions.
President Roosevelt's largest fol-
lowing was in the social science de-
partment of the literary college. He
also received a slight edge in voting
from the School of Law, the School
of Education, and the School of Bus-
iness Administration.
Voting Slight in Law School
The voting in the law school was
slight, giving six votes to Roosevelt
and four to Landon. Voting was
much heavier in the education school
where a few third party votes were
The Roosevelt margin in most of
the social science departments of the
literary college was unusually large.
Two of them did not cast a single
vote for the Republican candidate.

Murphy Declares Hayden Is
Best Colonial Vice - Governor

"I believe that Joe Hayden is the
-finest vice-governor the United
'States has had in any of its colonial,
possessions." ,
Thus High Commissioner Frank
Murphy of .the Philippine Islands,
Democratic candidate for governor,
described Prof. Joseph R. Hayden of
the political science department and
former vice-governor general of the
Philippines under Murphy in an in-
terview last night following Murphy's
speech in the Whitney theatre.
He worked untiringly with me, and
it was only through his wonderful

urge the passing of Professor Pol-
lock's Civil Service bill," the High
Commissioner declared. This bill,
which was drawn up by a special com-
mittee appointed by Governor Frank
Fitzgerald and headed by Prof. James
K. Pollok of the political science de-
partment, provides that all jobs
which were formerly under the
"spoils system" be put under the Civil
Service with the exception of policy
forming jobs. It is now pending ac-
tion before the State Legislature.
Murphy told how he has always
been an advocate of the Civil Service
system, and pointed out that he had
