In Rackham Auidtorium
Dr. Michael A. Heilperin, formerly
a member of the faculty of the Grad-
uate Institute of International Stu-
dies in Geneva, Switzerland, will in-
augurate the 1940 University Lecture
series at 4:15 p.m. today in the Rack-
ham lecture hall where he will speak
on "Liberal and Totalitarian Meth-
ods in International Economic Re-

During the past summer, Dr. Heil-
sen actedhas expert to the 12th
Session of the International Studio-~
Conference held in Bergen, Norway.
He was also a professor at the Aca--
demie du Droit International at The
Hague, where he gave a course on
"Collective Security, and Interna-
tional Economic Cooperation."
Dr. Heilperin's experience in this
country includes a fellowship in the

ment," Dr. Wa n E. Forsythe, di-
,ector of the health Service, com-
mented. "We're planning to take
all old equipment into the building
with the hope of getting help in the
future to replace them gradually.
We shall give any donators proper
recognition by way of suitable name
plates and markings."
The addition to the health service
is being constructed as a WPA proj-
ect, the government contributing 40
per cent of the funds. For its con-
tribution from the proceeds of "Cap-
ricorn Capers," the Assembly will be
given a plaque in the new building.
Dr. Bell expressed "delight with
the spirit which girls have shown
with regard to the new health serv-
ice, especially in the direct dona-
tions which they have made for fur-
nishing infirmary rooms. I think
this is a delightful demonstration
of mutual confidence shown between
the students and the health service.
Nothing would give me more person-
al satisfaction than to see these
rooms furnished:"
Calvert's Goal
Leads Sextet
To 1-0 Victory
Wolverines Beat Michigan
Tech For Year's First
Triumph;_James Stars
Michigan's hockey team took its
first step towards the retention of its
mythical ice championship of the
state last night at the Coliseum when
it played inspired hockey behind a
second-period goal to squeeze through
with a 1-0 decision over Michigan
The lone tally of the game came
as the result of a brilliant solo dash
by defenseman Larry Calvert at the
3:34 mark in the second period. Cal-
vert picked the puck up in his own
defense zone and after outskating
Tech's charging forward wall and
,splitting the defense beat Kurt Gus-
tafson with a well-aimed corner shot.
The Wolverine made little effort;
to protect their slim lead, and played
wide-open hockey against the up-
.taters in an effort to increase their
one-goal advantage.
The Huskie turned on the pressure
in the final stanza, and it was only
:hrough the fine work of Capt. Spike
James in the nets that Michigan was
able to ring up its first victory in
y -e starts.,
Although the Michigan captain was
ver left short-handed by penalties,
had to face a penalty shot in the
cond period when he tripped the
"ners' flying Frenchman Maurice
Silleneuve. But the big Canadian

Senator Burke, Chairman
Of Committee, Expects
No SenateOpposition
Michigan Delegates
Favor Appointment
WASHINGTON, Jan. 4.-() -
Senate confirmation within two
weeks or less of Frank Murphy's ap-
pointment to the Supreme:Court was
predictedtoday by Senator Burke
(Dem., Neb.).
Senator Burke, postponing the
subcommittee meeting until next
Thursday to enable him to attend
the funeral in Nebraska of Repre-
sentative Heinke (Rep., Neb.), said
he believed confirmation should
come without opposition.
Frank Murphy, if confirmed by the
Senate, will become the third mem-
ber of the present Supreme Court
appointed while serving as Attorney
He will take his seat alongside 77-
year-old James C. McReynolds, At-
torney General in the Wilson admin-
istration, and 67-year old Harlan F.
Stone, Attorney General in the
Coolidge administration.
Murphy's appointment was re-
ceived faborably by most members of
the Michigan delegation who cm-.
Senator Brown (Dem.) remarked
that it would be the first time in ap-
proximately 40 years, since Justice
Henry Brown held a Supreme Court
post, that Michigan will have had
a representative on the high court.
"I was highly pleased at the great
honor to our state," Brown said.
"Murphy, I think, is very well con-
stituted to be judge. He is a very
temperate man, and had long ex-
perience on the bench in Detroit be-
fore he became mayor."
Rep. John D. Dingall (Dem.) cred-
ited the appointment with adaing to
the Court's "scholarship, strength,
progressiveness, and liberal inter-
pretation of law for the benefit of
"The middlewest," Rep. Frank E.
Hook (Dem.) said, "certainly was
entitled to a position on the bench,
and Murphy's record of public service
indicates he no doubt will make a
very valuable justice."
