CONGRESS HAS NO POWER OVER
"The constitutional arguments
against the President's trip abroad
are so absurd," says Prof. R. T. Crane.

them are simply blinded by personal
or partisan animus, or so intensely
opposed to the trip as a matter of
policy that they snatch at any
"It is curious indeed how much Mr.
Wickersham has discovered in the
Constitution which he never knew was
there when he, as attorney-general
of the United States, was the princi-
pal legal adviser of our government.
It is fortunate indeed that his for-
mer chief, ex-President Taft, the lat-
ter's brother, Henry P. Taft, the Re-
publican leader of the House, Mr.
Mann, and many other party members

"Hardly less ridiculous than the at-
tempts to show that the President is
automatically disqualified from office
by leaving the country, or, as some
of these eminent lawyers would ap-
parently have us believe, by leaving
Washington, is the undertaking by
Congress to settle through legislation
what constitutes 'inability.'
"The Constitution confers no such
authority on Congress. It permits
Congress to fix the order of succes-
sion after the Vice-president, when
'inability' occurs. But Congress has
no power to define that term. It is a
matter of executive power, and its
interpretation rests primarily with the
executive, and ultimately with the
judiciary. Congress has nothing what-
ever to do with it."

Courts-Martial in Navy on Decrease
(By Associated Press)
Washington, Dec. 6.-TheNavy lived
up to its best traditions during the war
and sailors almost invariably conduct-
ed themselves better than in peace
times. Despite the large number of
men inducted into service from civil
life, which increased the naval force
134 per cent, there were fewer viola-
tions of navy regulations. The per-
centage of courts-martial decreased
from 1.75 to 1.17 in the navy and from
,.72 to 1.20 in the Marine Corps.

The nickname Yank, as applied to
the American soldier in France, has
something of charm in the tradition
of the word. Persons interested in
the history of words may have noted
with interest a footnote in Ceoper's
It is singular there should be any
question concerning the origin of the
well known sobriquet of "Yankee,"
Nearly all the old writers who spoke
of the Indians first known to the
colonists make them pronounce the
word "English" as "Yengeese."
Even at this day it is a provincial-
ism of New England to say "English"
instead of "Inglish,' 'and there is a
close conformity of sound between the
"English" and "Yengeese," more es-
pecially if the latter word, as was
probably the case, be pronounced
The transition from "Yengeese,"
thus pronounced, to "Yankees," is
quite easy. If the former is pronounc-
ed "Yanmgis" it is almost identical with
"Yankees," and Indian words have
seldom been spelled as they are pro-
nounced . . . The liquids of the Indian
would easily convert "En" into "Yen."

Snowfall Here Latest Since 1905
December 2, the date of this year's
first snowfall, is the latest in the rec-
ords of the observatory, which go
back to 1905. In 1909 snow fell on
October 12, the earliest recorded. Ann
Arbor has been fortunate in having
such a late snowfall.
Snow is generally to be expected
about the first week in November. Al-
though the first snowfall is seldom
very heavy, in 1907 the city was cov-
ered by over two inches of snow on
