The people's choice for a 1934 col-

tle it out for the second time with a
professional football team, the Chi-
cago Bears, under the floodlights at
Soldiers' Field, August 29.
Last year, before a crowd of 80,000

scoreless tie in a game marked by
the sensational play of three Michi-

stars and Bill Hewett for the profes-
Only Seniors Eligible
Fans of the country last year "elec-
ted" 22 stars of the 1933 college grid-
irons to play in the Chicago Trib-
une's first annual spectacle of the
kind. The Bears were champions of
the national professional league then,
and although they lost the title to the
New York Giants last December in the
playo'ff games, are regarded as the
team to beat for the 1935 crown.
Only players who were seniors on
last year's college and university
teams will be eligible for the game.
The two players at each position pil-
ing up the largest number of votes
will report to Dyche Stadium, North-
western University, on August 10 for

Besides Everhardus and Bernard,
Whitey Wistert was selected for the
1934 team but was unable to play
because of a baseball contract.
The balloting for players will start
July 6 and will continue for two
weeks. From July 21 to midnight of
August 5, a poll to select a head coach
and two assistants will be held. Noble
Kizer of Purdue rolled up 617,000
votes last .year in winning the head
coach job but will not be eligible
this year.
Michigan will have no outstanding
candidates for positions on the all-
star team other than Willis Ward,
Bill Borgman, John Regeczi and Jer-
ry Ford, but head coach Hhrry Kip-
ke, despite an unsuccessful season last
fall, Will be one of the leading con-
tenders for the coaching position.

GRAND RAPIDS, July 2. - (P) -
Certain old-line Republicans were ab-
sent today as more than a score of
party workers gathered here to ar-
range for Michigan's party in next
week's regional convention at Cleve-
Former Gov. Fred W. Green and his
close political friend and associate,
Howard C. Lawrence, chairman of
the state central committee, were
among those remaining away from
the meeting. The former governor
Monday expressed himself as "not in
sympathy" with the meeting and de-
scribed its backers as "holier than
thou fellows."
Little formal indication of how
Michigan/Republicans will stand on
national issues was expected to ema-
nate from today's meeting, which
State Senator Earl W. Munshaw said
was designed primarily for the se-
lection of the state delegation and the
Michigan speakers who will appear at
Cleveland. There was, however, an
opportunity for plenty of "off the rec-
ord" discussion of issues and per-
sonalities by the assembled politi-
Candidacies have been repeatedly
eschewed by sponsors of the meet-
ings here and in Cleveland. The re-

'Believe It Or Not' Conger To
Teach Credulous Tots Lesso

Spitting fish, oysters that grow on
trees, meals consisting of roast puppy
dogs and stale eggs, schools where
pupils must study five foreign lan-
guages before they may graduate,
barking birds, cannibals - these are
but a few of the unusual things which
Beach Conger, '32, Ann Arbor travel
author and educator, has seen and
described in carrying out a novel
method of teaching geography.
"And next year," said Mr. Conger,
"I hope to write about the hens which
lay eggs with blue shells, the red snow
in the Andes, ants that carry para-
sols, and the documents which sup-
posedly show that Christopher Co-
lumbus made a voyage to North Amer-
ica with some Scandinavian sailors
many years before the date of his
official discovery of this continent."
During the past two years Mr. Con-
ger has visited over 60 countries on
five continents and travelled nearly
100,000 miles while writing educa-
tional travel letters to American
school children for World Letters, an
educational publishing c o m p a n y
which sponsors one such writing
trip each year. During the 38 weeks
of the school year, Mr. Conger visits
as many countries, writing from each
a 2,500 word letter on what he sees.
These letters are duplicated by his
assistants and then mailed directly
to nearly half a million school chil-
dren in the United States.
"What we are doing," continued
Mr. Conger, "has been called 'two-
legged geography' by some educators.
We are trying to make geography
more human, something more than
dry facts on import and export sta-
tistics, population and area figures.
We try to tell school children about

the people who live in foreign co
tries, how they live, work, play,
study; that although their cust
may differ from ours and there
seem strange, there are good rea
for such differences.
"We tell the pupils how other c
dren study; what subjects they le
their games and sports, and what I

'They Are Not Getting
Work Soon Enough,'
Says Of Republicans


BALTIMORE, July 3 - (AP)-Quiet,
earnest and with a keen sense of
humor, George L. Radcliffe, Mary-
land's new democratic senator, is a
"new dealer" likely to apply the stern
test of practicability to governmental
theories. .,
He has been taking the practical
attitude al lhis life as farm ,boy,
school teacher, lawyer and business
man in turn. He was elected on a
"new deal" platform and is a former
business associate of the President.
He regards his friendship with Roose-
velt in a personal, not political, light.

Toronto Picnic Crowds
Are Thrown Into Dark
Ravine; None Dead
TORONTO, July 2. - (A') - A span
of the Woodbine foot bridge, burderned
by homeward-bound picnickers, col-
lapsed early today, plunging more
than two score persons head-long
into a dark East York ravine.
Twenty-four persons were injured,'
none of them seriously, and were
taken to hospitals. Many others, in-
cluding several women and children,
received medical treatment at the
A span of the old wooden structure
40 feet above the ravine gave way as
members of the East York Workers
association started over it after a pic-
nic andkwrestling matches in the near-
by park. -
Many persons saved themselves
from the fall by grasping a railing
and swinging themselves to safety,
dropping only a few feet near the
edge of the ravine, 75 feet below the
bridge at its deepest point. The
bridge was unlighted.
The accident spread alarm through
the crowd of 5,000 many of them near
the bridge, and the screams of women
and children added to the confusion
in the darkness.
Rescuers were unable to see the
victims in the ravine immediately, but
were guided by their shouts and soon
brought them up to ambulances. The
injured were taken to the Toronto
general hospital.
A number of doctors and nurses
were recruited by police and hurried
to the scene.
East York township police said the
dominion day holiday traffic over the
bridge had been unprecedented.

Reared on a Maryland eastern
shore farm, Radcliffe has kept his at-
tachment for the outdoors. He takes
long walks, swims, plays golf and, in

river on his farm.
He specialized in history during his
student and teacher days, and has
written historical books. He reads
much biography and history.
A hobby is collecting books about
Christmas. He has a wide assortment
on the holiday's religious, social and
historical phases.
Radcliffe holds a Ph.D. in addition
to his legal degree. He completed his

WASHIN'GTON,' July 2. - (P) -
Charles Curtis, vice president in the
Hoover administration, today declared
for a change in the Republican na-
tional chairmanship.
"They are not getting to work soon
enough," he said in an interview. "I

He did not mention Henry P. Flet-
cher by name. Fletcher is the present
chairman of the party's national com-
mittee. He is regarded as the selec-
tion of former President Herbert
Hoover, titular leader of the party.
'There are plenty of issues," Curtis
said. "The 'save the constitution'
proposition is very important. And
I think there are too many boards
and commissions."
He referred to a speech he made
in Topeka, Kas., Aug. 18, 1932 at-
tacking "bureaucracy" and continued:
"If the Republicans get in, they
would reduce the taxes. That's what
I think of the Roosevelt tax program.
Remember the Republicans reduced
taxes when Andrew Mellon was sec-
retary of the treasury. They could
be reduced again if they got rid of
these boards and commissions."
