Detroit Is Favored-
On Batting Power
McKechnie Is Expected
To Start Paul Derringer
For Cincinnati Reds
CINCINNATI, Oct. 1.-R)-Big,
blatant Buck Newsom of the Detroit
Tigers will be in the firing box to-
morrow in the first "game of the
World Series, with equally big Paul
Derringer probably doiig the rifle{
Work for the Cincinnati Reds.
Fans already were camping out-1
side the bleacher entrance to Crosley
Field tonight to make sure of seeing
the spectacle that starts at 1:30 p.m.
(EST) tomorrow, but the proximity
of the first battle did not disturb
Manager Bill McKechnie. The se-
cretive Sept kept his starting lineup
locked up in his mind.
But the hopes of the crippled Na-
tional League champions for giving
the American . .League its first
squelching since =1934 were bound up
in Derringer, and no one had any
doubt that he would get the call,
if indeed McKechnie had not already
told him. ',
Derringer Is Hope
Aside from the starting time,
which is fixed by Commissioner Ken-
esaw M. Landis, and the size of the
crowd, 33,000, which is controlled by
the structural capacity of the park,
almost every aspect of baseball's
great autumn classictwas surrounded
by minor mysteries,
The Tigers were rated as betting
favorites with bookmakers reported
quoting '7 to 10 against their win-
ning and even money on the Reds.
But Tiger Manager Del Baker, while
definitely naming. Newsom for the
important opening assignment, would
notddecide definitely on a right-
y fielder.
Lombardi May Not Start
McKechnie didn't know whether
the injured catcher, Ernie Lombardi,
and second baseman Lonnie Frey
would be able to go and the best
guess was that they could not.
Thes Series shaped up as a test of
pitching against power and the same
experts who usually trod a limb with-
out hesitation were hemming and
hawing in unprecedented fashion.
The Tigers will take the field with
no fewer than five .300 hitters in the
lineup. t ;
In Detroit's workout today, Green-
berg belted four balls over the cen-
ter and leftfield fences of Crosley
Field and made it look so easy that
National Leaguesupportersquaked
at the sight. Their only consolation
was that tomorrow the Bengals will
be batting against Derringer instead
of the fat-flinging of Clay Smith,
John Gorsica and their like.
Derringer, who finished the season
with a record of 20 won and 12 lost,
had been groomed carefully for the
opening assignment, with Bucky
Walters, Gene Thompson and Jim

Tickets

Still Avalable
Students and townsfolk greeted the
opening of the over-the-counter sale
of tickets for the 1940-41 Oratorical
Lecture Series with an overwhelming
response yesterday. Many season
tickets were sold, as well as tickets
for the individual lectures, but choi e
-eats are still available in all sec-
tions.
For the first time last year, the
policy of opening the second balcony
to students at a special rate was in-
augurated. More than two thousand
student tickets were sold during the
season. This year, the lecture series
committee has decided to repeat the
special student offer.
To avoid the confusion which re-
sulted in the rush for seats, all seats:
this year will be reserved including
special student tickets. Students may
still reserve seats in other sections
of the auditorium.
Such headliners as Dorothy Thomp-
son, Leland Stowe, and Warden Lew-
is E. Lawes will appear during the
Series. Ruth Draper, monologist,
who writes her own character sket-
ches, will open the series, Oct. 29.
Harry E. Yarnell, Wendell Chap-
man, Julien Bryan and William Beebe
complete the list of varied lecturers
who will appear in Ann Arbor dur-
ing the current season.
Miss Thompson is considered by
many' to be the nation's leading wo-
man journalist. Her columns are
syndicated by scores of newspaers.
It will be her first An Arbor ap-
pearance.
The box office at Hill Auditorium
will be open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Two Young Republican Speakers Will Debate Campus
Liberals On Campaign Issues At First Meeting

Legislation Also Contains
Clauses For Speeding
Program Of Defense
Government Life
Insurance Planned
WASHINGTON, Oct. 1. -(P)-
Congress sent a compromise excess
profits tax bill to the White House
and Senate that stillnfurtherrtaxes
would be levied early next year.
The Bill's draftsmen estimated it
would yield $525,000,000 on 1940 in-
come, including $230,000,000 from an
increase in the normal corporation
tax, and from $900,000,000 to $1,000,-
000,000 on 1941 income.
In addition to .the tax provisions,
the legislation also contained clauses
designed to speed up the defense pro-
gram. These would suspend existing
profits limitations on Government
contracts for construction of war-
ships and airplanes and permit cor-
porations to charge off against earn-
ings over a five-year period the cost
of new defense manufacturing facili-
ties completed after June 10, 1940.
Included also was a section under
which conscripts and other members
of the armed forces may obtain low-
rate Government life insurance.
Designed originally to hold in
check the profits that might accrue
to industries engaged in the sale of
national 'defense items, the com-
pleted legislation also would depend
for a substantial part of its revenue
upon a flat addition of 3.1 percent
to the normal corporation income
tax of concerns earning more than
$25,000 a year. This change would
increase the rate for these corpora-t
tions to 24 percent.
A tax, of from 25 to 50 perent;
would be levied on profits defined in
the 'bill as exceeding normal.
As it went to President Rooseveltt
the bill represented a compromise of
House and Senate bills as worked
out by a Conference Committee of
members from both chambers. ,
Willkie Seeks

Republican Nominee Visits

ABOARD WILLKIE TRAIN, En
Route Through Michigan, Oct. 1.-
(R)-Followers of Wendell Willkie
sought today to gauge the effects of
his campaign tour in Michigan, as
the Republican Presidential nominee
prepared to swing into Ohio.
The tour carried him to the gates
of great manufacturing plants, in his
biggest bid for the support of organ-
ized labor in this state.
His special train took him to the
doors of two plants of the Motor
Wheel Corporation in Lansing, where
he pleaded with workmen who wore
the buttons of the UAW-AFL to
"give me a square shake" and to
judge him without prejudice. Em-
ployers had given the men time off
their jobs to hear Willkie's speech.

By ROBERT SPECKHARD .
Michigan's 10,000-odd students
may soon expect to see a revival of
the famous Lincoln-Douglas debates
of 1860 in their midst as the result
of a meeting yesterday of campus
leaders at which plans for the Mich-
igan Forum were laid.
Sponsored by the Student Senate
in conjunction with the League,
Union and Michigan Daily, the
Michigan Forum is the name' of a
series of public debates that will
feature student leaders disputing
the political, economic and social
issues of the day.
Two young Republicans will carry
the burden of the affiriative in be-
helf of the question, "Resolved, That
the President of the United States
Be a Practical Businessman," when
they meet two campus "liberals" in
the first Forum at 7:45 p.m., October
12 in the Union.
The idea for the Forum has been
brewing for some time in the sanc-
tum sanctorum of the Student Sen-
ate. Last spring the Senate spon-
sored the well-remembered Witt,
Preuss, Smithies debate on the ques-
tion, "Can America Stay Out of

War?" The debate drew an over-r
flow crowd of 600. It is hoped that
the Michigan Forum will follow that
example ,and become a permanent
symbol of free discussion at Mich-
igan-an institution that will rival
the fame of the renowned Oxford
Union of Oxford University.
In detail organization the Forum
will closely approximate the proce-
dure of the Oxford Union. Each
week the sponsoring committee will
formulate the question and arrange
for speakers. After these speakers
have delivered "pro" and "con" ar-
guments, discussion from the floor
is in order, followed by a decision
vote. The manner of determining
the decision is novel. Those favoring
the affirmative will walk out on the
right side of the post in the exit;
those of negative inclination will
file out on the left of the post; the
doorman will count the heads.
Up to the time of the presidential
elections in November it is planned
to have questions of the Forum deal
with campaign issues in so far as
possible. After that time issues will
include current problems in econom-
ic, political, social and related fields.

(By The Associated Press)
LONDON, Oct. 1.-London sum-
coned up tonight the best defenses
brains and planes, steel and con-
ete against the prospectively worst
artime winter in its 20 centuries.
Even as these preparations went
>rward the Nazis launched their
5th consecutive nightly raid, but
receded-so far as visible and
udible signs indicated-before mid-
ight.
Wave Of Raiders
However, just on midnight a new
ave of raiders approached from the
Lst and the anti-aircraft barrage
as resumed with a mighty roar.
hell splinters fell in the streets of
ast London.
Then the Nazis withdrew toward
ie southwest, instead of continuing
i the accustomed route to Central
ondon.
Official estimates 'of 5,000 persons
lled and 8,000 wounded in London
i September-compared with 1,075
illed and 1,261 wounded in August-
ave a great urgency to the gigantic
ask of defense which must be ac-
omplished.
These parts were fitted into the
lachinery of London's defenses to-
ay:
1. Admiral Sir Edward Ratcliffe

pinking and quick action-was

4. Food Minister Lord Woolton

5. "Official assurances" were given

BERLIN, Oct. 1.-The German air
rce, day and night, is out to keep
Condon from "catching its breath,"
n authorized source said tonight
n outlining what was described as
he three-fold purpose of Germany's
aerial offensive against the British
[sles.
The other primary aims were
stated to be:
Interference with British war pro-
duction.
Blockading the import "of essen-
tial goods."
The outline appeared to- fit pre-
cisely with the German reports on
the latest bombings of Britain.
The high command said massed
formations and individual raiders ifn
the last 24 hours centered their at-
tacks on London and on the seas
around the British Isles.
It claimed: Sinking' of a 10,000-
ton merchantman by air action off
Ireland; scattering of a convoy off
Scotland with two ships aflame; hits
on air plants, airports and harbors
in the south and west of England
and the sinking of 49,760 tons of
shipping-eight vessels in all-by
submarines.

Barnstorming Wilikie 'Special'
Found Exciting But 'Very Tiring

By S. R. WALLACE .
Joe College boarded the Willkie
Train Monday when it pulled out of'
Ann Arbor, and dug his nose for the
first time into big time, high-press-
ure, scotch-and-soda politics.
Have you any idea what a Cam-
paign Special is like? Listen!
Your Daily representative, carried
away by reportorial excitement when
Willkie's train arrived, innocently
decided to ride to Detroit with the
Republican candidate and interview
him.
"Can't Be Done"
"Can't be done!" said the Ann Ar-
bor party heads, the plain clothes
men, the veteran newsmen and the
husky colored porters blocking every
entrance to the Pullman cars. The
organization was apparently air-

and I double-timed after him. No-t
body walks on that train. That's'
another way they work.<
Swaying precariously through one
of the three club cars I almost
stepped on Governor Dickinson's'
feet. He was about the only passen-
ger who sat quietly and had nothing
to say.
Even a porter volunteered the in-
formation that Willkie likes mashed
potatoes and gravy and cherry pie,
and "nuthin' fancy like you'd think."
Then, somewhere in the whirling
midst of typewriters, mimeograph
machines, tall glasses, wistful poli-
ticians and muttering journalists, I
remember meeting Wendell Willkie
and shaking his hand. He hardly
smiled. And that was all.
But I still had no special message
Bu srn hack to Ann Arhor .James

tween Haggerty and the Chicago
Tribune man, I felt like a goldfish
on display. But that's the way they
live.
The cars continued to Detroit, and
when- the long line slowed up we
knew that Willkie was standing up
in his -open convertible and bowing.
When we sped along we left Roose-
velt cheerers and Willkie booers be-
hind.
Rain Of Paper
They rained paper on us in a De-
troit square, and a newspaper bas-
ket thrown at Willkie from one of
the hotels injured a woman in the
crowd.
The Book-Cadillac Hotel was the
last stop-for me. Cigarette smoke,
siphon bottles and exhausted men
filled the three suites reserved for
journalists. Autograph hunters be-
