End Michigan

Completely Outclassed In

Sweet Plunges Over For
Kipkemen's Only Score;1
Penn's Passes Good
FRANKLIN FIELD, Philadelphia,
Penn., Nov. 7.-(Special to The
Daily)-Pennsylvania today ended
Michigan's 10-year dominance in in-
tersectional gridiron warfare by com-
pletely routing the Wolverines, 27-7
before 35,000 people here at Franklin
At only one time during the battle
did Michigan force the play, this
coming early- in the third quarter
when they scored their lone touch-
down. At all other times the Quakers
were completely in charge, and with
Francis Murray and Lew Eleverson
leading the way gained, sweet re-
venge for last year's defeat at the
hands of Kipke's charges in Ann Ar-
Fighting Wolverines
It was a fighting band of Wolver-
ines that faced the hard running
Quakers here today but it takes more
than just fight to down Pennsylvania
this year. With such -a decisive tri-
umph over Michigan on their 1936
record the Quakers are planning to
seek the -Rose Bowl bid.
Before the game was three minutes
old Penn was well on its way to vic-
tory, the Elverson-Murray combina-
tion having already started to func-
tion in a winning way. After Murray
had returned the opening kick-off to
his 27-yard line he dashed through
Michigan's line 27-yards to the 48.
After two unsuccessful line plunges
there by Kurlish, Murray faded back
and threw a long pass to Elverson,
who had passed up the Michigan
secondary. He crossed the goal line
standing up and with Murray adding
the extra point from placement Penn
led. 7-0.
It was the superb punting of Mur-
ray that kept the Quakers in com-
mand. Five times he punted out of
bounds within the Michigan 20-yard
line and one other punt was downed
on the three. In this way Penn kept
Michigan's back to the wall through
most of the game.
Quakers Gain 212 Yards
Penn made eight first downs and
the Wolverines four, gained 212 yards
to 98 by rushing and through the air
gained 54 yards while the Wolverines
did not complete a pass. The sta-
tistics give an accurate story of the
game in themselves, showing Penn's
complete dominance.
The Quakers' second touch-down
came mid-way in the second quarter
with Elverson again carrying the ball
over the goal line. One of Murray's
punts went out of bounds on Michi-
gan's eight yard stripe and Sweet
punted back to Elverson who re-
turned to the Wolverine's 39-yard
line.dKurlish and Murray cracked
the line twice to take the ball to the

27 and then a lateral from Murray
to Miller placed Penn on the 18. El-
verson picked up 12 yards off tackle
and on the next play crashed over
for the tally. Murray's kick was
again good.
The third quarter opened with:

A professor teaching controversial,
subjects should be careful to point
out other existing opinions, but at the
same time should not neglect to state
his own, Prof. Preston W. Slosson of
the history department told members
of the American Association of Uni-
versity Professors gathered here for a
regional conference yesterday.
The meeting was divided into three
sections, all under the chairmanship
of Prof. A. H. White, head of depart-
ment of chemical and metallurgical
engineering. It began with a morn-
ing conference at 10 a.m., followed
by a luncheon meeting at 12:15 p.m.
and the afternoon council, at which
Professor Slosson spoke, at 2 p.m.
Controversial Limit Defined
Teachers of subjects close to cur-
rent thought, such as modern history,
philosophy and political science are
most frequently indicted on the
charge of introducing extraneous ma-
terial into discussion, Professor Slos-
son said, but the difficulty of defin-
ing extraneous matter in such sub-
jects is very great.
The chief limitation on a profes-
sor teaching a controversial subject
should be respect for his students, he
continued, and too often this is not,

Roscoe O. Bonisteel, Ann Arbor at-
torney, and a graduate of the Law
School was yesterday elected presi-
dent of the State Bar Association of
Michigan by the board of commis-
sioners of the association in a meet-
ing held at Lansing.
Mr. Bonisteel becomes by virtue of
his election to this post the head of
' an organization composed of 5,8001
members who practice law in the
State of Michigan.
Long active in professional organi-
zations, Mr. Bonisteel was appointed
in 1935 by the Supreme Court of
Michigan to the board of commis-
sioners of the State Bar, a body
composed of 21 members. He was
elected first vice-president of the
board of commissioners during that
same year.
"The board of commissioners is an
active body of the State Bar Associa-
tion and was originally appointed by
the Supreme Court of the State of
Michigan," Mr. Bonisteel said yes-
terday. "However, the board of com-
missioners will be in the future elect-
ed by the members of the entire as-
sociation, and the president of the
State Bar is chosen from the board of

Michigan's football squad arrives
at 2:45 p.m. today at the depot and
it is planned that they will be re-
ceived by members of the' student
body, according to Miller Sherwood,
37, president of the Men's Council.
Arriving on the same train with
the team will be Michigan's band
which will play for the occasion, ac-
cording to a wire received by Sher-
wood last night from Dr. William Ra-
velli, director of the band.
A cheer leader will also be there'
to aid in welcoming the team, Sher-1
wood said, and "it is hoped that de-.
spite yesterday's loss the student body
will take advantage of this oppor-
tunity of showing their appreciation
of the team," he added.

National Union
DETROIT, Nov. 7-/P)--The Rev.
Charles E. Coughlin announced to-
night that his National Union for So-
cial Justice, which he said was "thor-
oughly discredited" as the result of
Tuesday's national election, will cease
to be active and that he was "hereby
withdrawing from all radio activity
in the best interests of all the
His National Union, he said in a
farewell broadcast, "is not dead; it
merely sleeps. It will live as long as'
truth lives, because the sixteen prin-
ciples (of the Union) are immortal."
Recounting his views of the Presi-
dential election, the Royal Oak,
(Mich.) priest announced the union
will adopt a "policy of silence" to-
ward the New Deal administration.
His withdrawal from the radio
field is a fulfillment of a promise
made at the Cleveland Convention of
the National Union last summer
when, after the Union endorsed the
Union Party presidential candidacy
of William Lemke, the priest said he
wduld abandon the air if Lemke failed
to poll nine million votes.

team may have lost, but the Michi-
gan band and the contortions of
Drum Major Fred N. Wiest, '38SM,j
gave the several thousand students
and alumni present something to ]
cheer about.>
The band was introduced onto thei
field by a 16-trumpet fanfare, com-,
pared by newspapermen in the press;
box to that of Fred Waring's orches-
tra. The band then surrounded the
trumpeteers, playing the Victors andj
forming the champagne bottle which
was given last week in the Illinois
game. This time the formation end-'
ed in a "P."
Between halves the band formed
three revolving crosses to "The Music
Goes 'Round and 'Round." They al-,
so gave their interpretation of a
firecracker which exploded, sending;
b'andmembers all over the field and
forming a block "P" enclosed in a
keystone. Meanwhile the band played
the University of Pennsylvania march.

tion from the entire crowd.

the case. "An 'A' paper too oftenI
means simply that the student has'
just guessed what the professor1
wants," he remarked.
Prof. Clyde L. Grose, of the history,
department of NorthwesternhUni-
versity, spoke after Professor Slosson
on "The Professor's Profession."
Stating that a professional spirit was
as essential to good work as an ama-
teur spirit is to good play, he enum-
erated three kinds of knowledge every
professor should have: understanding'
of his subject, sympathy with other'
subjects, and a knowledge of people.
Shepard Addresses Group
Imbuing the student mind with
particular doctrines results not so
much' from one-sided presentation of
the facts as from an emotional 'con-
ditioning, Prof. John S. Shepard of
the psychology department told the
morning session of the conference.
Professor Shepard's talk followed the
opening of the conference by Profes-
sor White.
Indoctrinated beliefs, he declared,
involve an emotional 'block' to any
rational approach to the subject, and
are determined by the extent of emo-
tional experiences which the believer

Professor Mearns presented several 1
examples by relating stories of smalle
children who spoke in a definite
rhythm and inflection scheme.-
In opening his address he said "as'
soon as children begin to speak they 11
attempt the language of literature.'
During those early months and years,,
when they are struggling with thev
difficult medium of language, occa-n
sional flashes of achievement come."
At a luncheon rheld in the Union,t
Professor Mearns, who holds the onlyc
chairmanship of a department ofr
creative education in the country,t
said "we are discovering that dull
children by one measuring rod may1
be really bright when a different scale
is used."
He told of a boy "who failed to
get credit for a course in gas en-
gines but who later was credited highf
for gas engines-Charles Lindbergh."

himself in the right shoulder last
night at the Square Gun Club on 611
E. William St., suffering a slight flesh

Zant had walked into the shooting
gallery, fired two of the three shots
for which he had paid a dime, and
waited for the attendant, Lawrence
Pratt of Ann Arbor, to turn his back
before he lifted the gun and fired the
third shot into his shoulder. The
bullet glanced off his arm and elbow.
He was the only customer in the
place at the time.

Modern art, because it is the ex-I
pression of a modern era, will out- 1
last current popular reaction against
it and move toward a refinement of
what it has started, Donald B. Gooch
of the College of Architecture said
yesterday in an interview.
"Popular reaction to modern art,"
Mr. Gooch said, "is against its ex-
treme excesses, such things as cubism,
which were mainly experimental and
probably will not last. The whole
movement of modern art had its
beginning in a reaction against cer-
tain historical schools which stressed
highly developed technique in paint-
ing without much meaning behind
it. 'he new movement is seeking
more meaning and force with less
attention being :given to unnecessary,
details to create "prettiness." "In
the beginning it went as far in the
other direction, but now there should
come a period of refinement. Every
art movement has a beginning, high
point and decay. Modern art is still
in its youth."
No particular forms of painting are
being stressed over others in modern
y art, Mr. Gooch said. Perhaps there

were hung over the wall. Now it is
being done directly on the wall sur-
face itself.
Water colors, Mr. Gooch continued,
are having a strong revival, while oil
paintings, on the other hand, have
been going through a slight depres-
rion. Etchings will probably not for;
a long time reach the heights they
attained under Rembrandt and the
Renaissance school.
"It is difficult for anyone living at
the time of movement and change
to be able to determine which men
will be remembered for their work,"
Mr. Gooch stated, "but Diego Rivera
must be mentioned among outstand-
ing contemporary artists. Rivera is
not motivated in his work by the idea
of reaction as are so many others.
Instead, he has a distinctive type of
drawing to express his ideas, and his
work is a good expression of the
modern period. Rivera is best known
for his murals, but is a fine academic
artist also." John Marin is the fore-
most water color artist, he said, and
has been recognized in this field for
several years.
There are differences of opinion,
Mr. Gooch concluded, as to what
