Rome, Feb. 25.-The Greek legation
here today issued a denial of the re-
port that a Greek minister in Sofia

that Greece will remain neutral, even
if the Bulgarians attack Saloniki. The

that it is taken as proof that Greece

anarchist chef wanted for the attempt
to poison Archbishop Mundelein and
other dignitaries of the Cathlic
church when they attended a banquet
in Chicago. It is stated today that

Admiral Refuses
to State Opinion
Winslow, U. S. N., Keeps Out of Ar-
gument as to Arming of
Merchant Vessels
Washington, Feb. 25.-Attempts
made by Representative Britten at a
hearing of the house naval committee
today to induce Admiral Winslow to
express an opinion concerning the
arming of merchantmen ended in
failure.
Admiral Winslow replied to all the
questions put to him on this point by
saying that although he had an opin-
ion on the subject he was not an in-
ternational law expert.
He especially emphasized the ne-
cessity for sea training as a qualifi-
cation of naval officers in a discussion
of the defects of the naval system,
and proposed that boys be taken at
Annapolis at 14 years of age, and af-
ter two years of academic study, sent
to sea for two or three years, coming
back to complete their studies ashore.
LINER CRETAN BADLY DAMAGED
IN COLLISION WITH DOROTHY
Norfolk, Va., Feb. 25.--The Merchant
and Miners' liner Cretan, bound from
Philadelphia to Savanndh, was in col-
lision with the steamer Dorothy
14 miles north of Cape Hatteras
during the thick fog early this morn-
ing.
The Cretan was badly damaged, but
her fifty passengers were transferred
to the Dorothy, which was in no dan-
ger of sinking, and both vessels start-
ed for Norfolk as fast as they could.
A large hole was stove in the Cretan's
starboard bow and immense quanti-
ties of water penetrated one compart-
ment.
According to the wireless dispatch,
the Cretan was able to proceed under
her own steam. No one was hurt on
either vessel.

PONY RIDER IS SUSPENDED
In a regular meeting held Thursday
night the faculty of the Literary Col-
lege concurred in the recommendatior
of the administrative board that 34
students be required to withdraw be
cause of failure, according to an an-
nouncement made yesterday. The ad
ninstrative board has also asked a
number of others to leave for the same
reason.
Reinstatement for these students is
controlled by the administrative board.
In the case of the freshmen whio have
been obliged to withdraw for poor
scholarship the understanding is that
an application for reinstatement after
one semester of absence will bie fa-
favorably considered.
The case of Chas. S. Murphy, '19, of
Ogde.nsburg, N. Y., who was accused of
cheating during an examination, was
considered, and Murphy has been sus-
pended for one semester.
In addition, 13 degrees of Bachelor
of Arts, five of Bachelor of Science, and
four teachers' diplomas were recom-
mended. About 40 students completed
the necessary work for the Bachelor's
degree, but nearly half of the number
have entered the graduate school and
will receive their degrees with the
graduating class in June.
The whole matter of the election of
studies and of classification was re-
ferred to a committee for investigation
and report. The committee was asked
to give particular attention to the
large number of changes subsequent to
the first filing of election cards. Sev-
eral members of the faculty have sug-
gested that the policy of allowing
changes of elections be abandoned
rnd that students be required to con-
tinun with a subject once elected.
The requirements of the combined
course leading to the B. S. and M. D.
degrees were modified to include two
bours of laboratory work in physics.
This was done to conform to the re-
quirements of the state board of medi-
cal registration. The measure will be
passed upon by the regents and, if'
adopted, will go into effect with the be-
ginning of the fall term in 1917.

class tryouts will meet on the evening
of March 3 in the final contest for the

Pleases Morgan
F RU M LIT CO LLSE iDirector of Opera Say, "Tres Rouge"
T~Thursday Hits Best Amateur Selections
Regular Meeting on Thursdayein He Ever Heard

Also ConsMers Changes in
Lit-Medie Requirements

"It certainly is unusual amateur
music," was the answer given by Di-
rector Morgan when asked his opinion'
of the music for the Union opera, "Tres
Rouge." "It suggests variety, and is
catchy in every respect. I believe
that there is an unusual amount of
musical talent in this university."
When questioned further as to
whether he thought the songs of th s
year's opera would remain popular
with the student body for an extended
period, as has been the case in pre-
vious years, he stated: "Some of these
songs are bound to be whistled and
sung for a long time. All in all, they
are quite the best collection of ama-
teur songs that I have ever heard."
He then went on to praise the work
of Abraham T. Gornetsky, '17, who has
the honor of having written the music
for all but one of the musical scores
for the 1916 opera. W. A. P. John,
'16, writer of the book, is also the
writer of the lyrics for all the scores.
In speaking of Gornetsky, Morgan said,
"It isn't often that you can find a man
who can do so many different kinds of
music so well as Mr. Gornetzky. In
my opinion he is another Irving Ber-
lin."
The director expressed his satisfac-,
tion with the work of both cast and
chorus men, and commended the spirit
of the men who are taking part in this
year's production.
Director Morgan has directed 16
shows in the past two years, having
directed plays in his career at Har-
vard, Yale, Annapolisf Pennsylvania
and other universities. He also statedf
that he expects to specialize on college
productions in the future, primarily
because.he likes the spirit of college
men and likes to work with them.
