Teams Will Meet August

'M' Men May Play
What may well be the greatest
football game ever played is planned
for Augustn31 at Soldiers' Field, Chi-
cago, when the Chicago Bears will
meet a picked team of 1933 college
The all-star team is to be chosen by
ballot of football fans, through the
Chicago Tribune and associated news-
papers, and will be composed of those
college stars who ended their college
gridiron careers last fall.
Each fan is invited to name the
eleven best players from last year's
college graduates, and the 27 receiv-
ing the highest number of votes will
comprise the squad which will report
for training August 15. Sponsors of
the game have limited the choices to
those who ended their college play in
1933 because it is felt that those men
will be in relatively fine physical
Subsequent to the choice of the all-
star squad, which will be made July
25, a nation-wide contest to pick a
college coach to handle the squad will
be held.
Members of the Chicago Bears
team, national professional cham-
pions in 1933, have expressed them-
selves enthusiastically as in favor of
the game. "We are supposed to be
world's champions," they are re-
ported as saying, "here's a chance to
prove it against a team which will be
a real All-American team."
Althtugh teams of "All-Americans"
have often been assembled, and all-
star teams play annual games, spon-
sors claim that the proposed game
would be the first real exhibition by
a group of college All-Americans.
Four Michigan men are mentioned,
as outstanding possibilities for the
squad, Whitey Wistert, Chuck Ber-
nard, Ted Petoskey, and Herman Ev-

Kings wood Schools
Sixty-seven students, making the
trip in two buses and four private
cars, accompanied Prof. Carl J. Coe

Schools in Bloomfield Hills. They left
shortly after 8 yesterday morning, and
returned to Ann Arbor in two groups,
one at about 3:15 and the other at
After reaching the boys' school
at Cranbrook at about 9:30, the group
spent half an hour wandering about
the school while waiting for an ap-
pointment at the Academy of Arts,
which was set for 10:00.
There they viewed George G.
Booth's art collection, which he has
deeded to the Cranbrook Foundation.
Among the exhibits was a model of
a proposed memorial to Alexander
Hamilton, designed by Eliel Saarinen,
architect of the Cranbrook Schools.
At this time Mr. Vernon B. Kellett,
acting assistant to the headmaster at
Cranbrook this summer, who con-
ducted the party while it was at
Cranbrook, explained to the group the
organization of the six units which
form the Cranbrook Foundation. The
only co-ordinating force, Mr. Kellett
explained, is the Foundation itself,
which administers the endowment set
up for the group, and handles its
The first of the units to be estab-
lished was the Brookside School,
which Mr. Booth originally meant to
be a choir-school for the proposed
Christ Church. These two units were,

terances of apprehension against
Democratic bureaucracy and "exces-
sive" governmental spending were)
made today by nationally prominent
speakers at the 80th birthday cele-t
bration of the Republican party here.-
Great crowds of party adherents
heard Sen. Arthur H. Vandenberg
of Grand Rapids, Chairman Henry
P. Fletcher of the Republican Na-
tional Committee, Sen. Arthur Capper
of Kansas, and several state digni-
taries lash out against the problems
and policies of the party now in
Budgetary iniquities of the Admin-
istration were severely scored by Sen-
ator Vandenberg, who characterized
the governmental spending as "the{
prodigal mistake of trying to buyg
prosperity and the worse mistake of
buying it without paying for it." t
Warns Against Inflation
He warned against what he termed
"our deadly drifts toward the mael-(
stroms of uncontrolled inflation,"(
which he said was capable of sweepingI
"all industry, commerce, and agricul-
ture under the dominion of the statel
and substitute it for the citizen as ouri
economic reliance." i

Like the speakers yesterday who
preceded him on the platform, Ser-
ator Vandenberg was firm in the be-E
lief of a rigid Constitution and flayed
the Democrats for their abuse of it.
Inevitable complications will spring
up, he stated, in a system, "wholly;
new to America, under which the1
spirit of the Constitution is mocked
and mangled; under which even the
President's own Congressional ma-
jority is significantly reduced to the
