Asked To Run
For President
A long career of, service tocart and
poetry in its highest phases reached
its culmination yesterday when Doc-
tor Thomas Lovell, lieutenant-colonel
of archery, our own poet, cobbler, and
patron of the, arts, received official;
notification from the highest sources
in the land that he was destined short-
ly to be honored with the highest office
at the disposal of the American people
-the presidency of the United States.
The document, signed with the offi-
cial seal of the secretary of the treas-
ury and dotted with the marks of sev-
eral other cabinet officers, states a'
truth that we can only too readily be-
lieve--that the offer came at the will
of an overwhelming majority of the
Democratic party and the irresistible

ployes. A committee, composed of
Charles J. Deland, secretary of state,
Thomas E. Johnson, superintendent
of public in'struction, and Fred B.
Perry, secretary to the state admin-
istrative board, has been appointed
to go over the entire question of pay,
nor -state employes.
Examination of the state pay rolls
has disclosed the fact that maniy ste-'
nographers and clerks are workingI
for a bare living wage. In some de-
partments they have been started as
low as $800 a year. The governor be-
lieves that every state employe
should have a living wa'ge, and he
does not consider $800 a living wage,
If it is necessary in order to balance
up the expenditures, he advocates
raising the pay of those in minor po-
sitions at the expense of those high-
er u.
Budgets passed by the 1921 leg-
islature in several instances carry a
proviso, that the personal service
items shall be gone over by the state
administrative board. In almost all of
.the pay rolls submitted there has
been a general upward revision, but
the tendency apparently has been to
raise those already receiving a fair
salary more, proportionately, than
those in minor places.. The governor
expressed himself as being in favorl
of good pay. He considers, however.
that a living wage is the first thing
to be considered. It is his idea thatE
all state emnloyes be assured of fair
compensation first, and then the mat-
ter of advancing the salaries of these
who are already getting enough to
live comfortably on may be consid-
ered.
The committee appointed by the
governor, expects to make 'an ex-
haustive study of the economic situ-
atidn as it affects state employes. Ar-'
other thing that will result from
the committee investigation will be a'
definite statement as to just how
much the reorganized plan of state
government through the centralization
of departments and the elimirnation of
much "dead timber", is saving thel
state.c

Tyne. "The present crisis (emands demand oft

see it, is there any practicat way for
the realization of the widespread de-

'Malta, July G. - Virtualy the en-

Never before has the harbor of
Malta been so empty., Even reserve,

the vessels which recently sailed in
that direction have, large suppies of
munitions. In view of these move-

choice of his party for the election of
1924. He does not offer to declare a
special election before that time in
order to insure the consummation of
the event, but his apology for slipping
up in this particular is quite accept-
able to the doctor.
The notification comes after a long
series of honors and degrees, so it is
not the surprise to his Ann Arbor
friends that it, might have been. It
was early i nour honored doctor's ca-
reer that he received the degree of
Ueutenant-co'onel of Archery, one of
the highest honors at the disposal pf
Cushing's drug store. From that time
started the rain of honors that threat-
ens to bury our beloved poet-cobbler,
beneath its weight. He was officially,
appointed poet laureate of Michigan,
se'ected by a venerable body from the
French academy as the founder of
free verse (by cable direct to The
Wolverine), and given the degrees 'of
LL.D., J.D., F.O.B., R.F., and finally

Overwhelmed by'the accumulation of
these degrees, whose robes his mod-'
esty does not permit him to wvear ex-
cept on the most formal occasions, he
found himself nominated for the pres-
idency of Michigan,' an honor 'that he
resigned in favor of President Marion
L. Burton.
Last winter Dr. Lovell rana close
race for the position of Greatest
American, being nosed out in the end
by George Washington. His touching
speech declining the presidency off

trollable feeling, and from that mo-
iment his choice for a greater position
was assured.
