Speech Society, Sigma Rho Tau,d
Initiates Dean Ivan C. Crawford!

Fifth dean of the Engineering Col-
lege, Dean Ivan C. Crawford, fol-
lowed in the steps of his predecessors
yesterday by mounting the famous
Sigma Rho Tau stump, striking the
traditional pose and becoming an
honorary member of the "Stump
Speakers' Society."
The Group's newest member will
maintain tradition again by serving
as principal speaker of a Sigma Rho
Tau meeting at 7:30 p.m. today in
the Union. There, the former major
in the United States Engineeringj
Corps, will speak on "Estimates of
Belgium's War Damages."
Having joined the ranks of the
noted sons of the "Stump," which in-
cludes such men as Gov. Luren D.
Dickinson and Murray De VanWag-
oner, 1940 gubernatorial candidates,
Dean Crawford is scheduled soon for
much of the "pomp and ceremony"
which surrounds the University chap-
ter of the honorary Engineering
Speech Society. And, as Prof. Robert
D. Brackett of the Engineering Eng-
lish department, faculty adviser, said
recently "his time will come."
Such important things as tung oil,
the famous tung oil crown, tung oil
gavels, the renowned "Cooley Cane,"
the Society's huge stop light and Pro-
fessor Brackett's pet speech meter
will all have to be introduced to the
new Dean.
The tung oil tree, whose sap is
used in fine wood-finishing work,
was adopted some years ago as "the
most appropriate symbol" for an En-
gineering speech organization. Each
spring a contest is held among the
faculty and the flowers of the tree,
formed into a wreath, is presented to
the winner as the man "who has
spoken best to oil the wheels of co-
Gavels of tung oil wood and bronze
stumps modeled after the original,

Van de Walker was appointed to
the commission chairmanship, a non-

At Lansing, Governor Dickinson
said the resignation was "not sur-

and Paul L. King, Detroit, were made
new members, might have precipitated

Alumnus Takes Care
Of Candidate's Throat
The fact that Wendell L. Willkie is
still able to give campaign speeches
is due in no small part to a Michigan
Dr. Harold Barnard, '19M, is indeed'
the man behind the voice of Willkie,
for he has been taking care of the
Republican nominee's throat since the
early Chicago speeches.
At that time Willkie's throat was
in a terrible condition. His aids called
California and hired Dr. Barnard on
the advice of Robert Montgomery,
who suffered from a similar ailment
and was relieved by Dr. Barnard.
The Doctor met the Willkie train
at Kansas City and has been on it
ever since.
The trip east enabled Dr. Barnard
to revisit Ann Arbor for the first time
in 18 years.
