Son of Syrian Missionary is Missed
by Classmates; Intended to
Teach A stronomy in Syria
Princeton, N. J., Feb. 29.-Members
of the. Princeton senior class are
greatly perturbed over the disap-
pearance of William West, one of
the class' well-known members. West
has been missing since last Thurs-
day morning when he took breakfast
at Clover Inn, his upper-class eat-"
ing club, and the most strenuous ef-
forts on the part of the university
and class authorities to locate him
have been unavailing.
West's parents were missionaries
in Syria, his father dying some years
ago. His mother, however, is still
in the field. He had planned to
teach astronomyt in the Beirut schoil._
in Syria, after having received his
degree in June.

Washington, Feb. 2.-President
Wilson startled Congress this evening
by calling for a show-down on his
submarine , policy. The president
vrote to the acting chairman of the
rules committee of the house, and
asked for an early vote on the reso-
lution now pending which warns
Americans from traveling on armed
The president in this letter declares
that "the report that there are di-
vided counsels in congress in re-
gard to the foreign policy of the gov-
ernment is being made industrious use
of in foreign capitals." He expresses
the belief that the report is false and
adds that "so long as it is anywhere
credited, it cannot fail to do the
greatest harm and expose the country
to the most serious risks.
The president thus has thrown
down every barrier against the pub-
lic discussion of foregn affairs in
congress and has in fact invited a
frank and full exchange of views on
the administration's record. The
challenge from the president will.
mark the opening of a debate in con-
press which is likely to be one of
the most spirited and important that
has taken place in years. What the
outcome will be is now, of course, a
matter of mere speculation.

Eugene, Ore., Feb. 29.-To correct
defective feet of girls caused in most
cases by wearing high-heeled, pointed-
toe shoes, classes ar% to be organized
at the University of Oregon for special
physical culture work and instruction.
A report made public today says prints
taken of the feet of 23 freshmen re-
vealed that only three had "good feet"
and not one had a perfect toe line. In
the future all girls entering the Uni-
versity will have their footprints taken.
HUTCHINS TALKS TO ENGINEERS
President Will Speak to Juniors at
9:00 o'Clock Tomorrow
President Harry 1. Hutchins will
address the junior engineers at their
regular assembly at 9:00 o'clock to,
morrow morning in room 348 in the,
Engineering building. Dean M. E.
Cooley, of the engineeirng college, will
introduce the speaker.
The general trend of President
Hutchins' remarks will have refer-
ence to subjects which the engineer
should have acquaintance with out-
side the technical field.
Seats for the Union opera "Tres
Rouge" will go on sale to the general
public at the Hill auditorium box of-
fice at 9:00 o'clock this morning.
Reports indicate that an unusually
large number of alumni will be in Ann
Arbor to take in the annual show. The
report of the sale to date is better
than that of any previous year, and the
management expects packed houses
at each performance. A large number
of seats were sold to women on the day
reserved for them.
The combined rehearsal of cast and
chorus held at the Union last night
was taken up chiefly by instruction in
special dances. As stated before, it
is a fair prediction that the dancing
of this year's production will exceed
that of any other year.
The lyrics and music have been sent
to the publishers and will be put on
sale at the time of the first per-
PREPARE 86 OPENING SCENE
Allegory Representing Humanity Is
to Be In Prologue; Costume And
Scenery Are Costly
Humanity's robe of many pockets,
phich occupies such an important
place in the prologue scene of the All
Nation Revue, is a wonderful piece of
scenic artistry, in the estimation of
Director Stauffer, who is producing the
One by one, the various nations ap-
pearing int he Revue are gathered to-
gether by Humanity's handmaidens,
into the folds of this robe, the ragged
edges of the world being thus bound
up and gathered in to humanity, in the
allegorical presentation of the theme.
The robe itself will cost $200, while
the scenery which completes the pro-
logue setting will cost several hun-
dreds of dollars. In the moments
when the robe is not being used as
such, it will be used as a curtain, as
its huge size prohibits the installation
of another curtain.
N. Y. Democrats
Eulogistic Platform Prepared by State
Conference Is Sure of Adoption;
Policies Are Prased
Syracuse, N. Y., Feb. 29.-President
Wilson's re-election Is to be unequivo-
cally urged in the platform to be
adopted by the Democratic state con-
ference tomorrow, following a recital
of a score of federal laws enacted by
the Democratic president and Congress
and an analysis of the President's
treatment of the European and Mexican
No platform adopted by a convention
of Wilson office holders could be more
eulogistic of the President and his
policies than the one which is to be
unanimously approved at the Demo-
cratic state cenference tomorrow. In
return President Wilson and his im-
mediate advisers are permitting the
Democratic state organization, con-
trolled by Tammany, to maneuver the
operation of the conferences without
interference ,aside from the sugges-
tion as to Flynn's keystone speech
in answering Root, and that the state
platform be confined to national issues.
First Night's Canvass Adds 166 Names
to List, Puttng Total Number
Above I04 Mark.
VISIT FRATERNITIES T 0 N I G H T
In the first night's cnvass for Union
life members, 166 names were added
to the present list, bringing the total
number of members into the neigh-
borhood of 1250.
The committees of J. F. Meade, '17E,I
and H. .Gray Muzzy, '17, brought in a
total of 29 new memberships eacn,
while H. E. Ramsey, '17KE, was first in
the individual showing with eight.
In the opening night of the campaign
the canvassing was restricted to the
independents of the campus. Staats
M. Abrams, '17E, general chairman of
of the undertaking, was pleased with
the showing, and believes that this
excellent start will mean the ultimate
attainment of the Union's goal of 3,000
student life members.
At a banquet given for the entire
body of committeemen last evening at
the Union at 5:30 o'clock, two hundred
canvassers were told of the proposition
and urged to make the students realize
that this Union building project was
a student undertaking for the benefit
of the students, and that if the alumni
consider it worthy of the support that
they have thus far given, the students,
who will profit by the new building,
ought to be willing to do more. Theg
canvassing started at 6:30 o'clock and
lasted until 10:00 o'clock.
The entire body of solicitors will
start out again tonight, and will make1
a canvass of the fraternity houses. This
portion of the campaign will take the
next two nights, and its completion
will bring the canvassing to an end.
By 10:00 o'clock Thursday night, the
Union will know in actual figures tot
just what extent the campus wants to
see the Union building plan succeed.-
Harry Gault, '17L; president of thet
Union, is enthusiastic over the pros-
pects in the canvas.T
The general chairman of the entire;
canvass is Staats M. Abrams, 117E,
and the following are serving under1
him ashcaptains, each in charge of fif-
