voted to a physical memorial, while

DECLARES JAPS CLEVEREST
DIPLOMATS AT CONFERENCE
William Allen White's presentation
of facts, opinions and humorous stor-
les in his leeture, "What a Reporter
Saw at the Peace Conference," brought
the work and the problems of the
conference to his audience in a de-
lightfully personal way last night in
Hill auditorium. His character sketch-
es of the prominent men were ex-
cA'ptionally enjoyable. %
European Statesmen Material
According to Mr. White. the Amer-
ican commission went to France with
the desire to'express victory in terms
of ideals and were greatly distressed
to find the materialisl of the Euro-
pean statesmen. The first shock which
the newspaper men 'encountered was
when it was announced that the con-
ferenve was to be closed.
This caused the newspaper men to
make such a vigorous protest that
some concessions were made,'but they
were merely technical. However, Mr.
White thinks that a good precedent
was established which will be follow-
ed by the league of nations. "And I
have no doubt but that there will be
a league," Mr. White added. The pre-
sent covenant in Mr. White's opinion
is the American translation of the
British draft.
Mr. White considers the peace con-
terence and the drafting of the treaty
the greatest event which has occurred
since the Crucifixion, and, while he is
not a Wilson man personally, he gives
President Wilson all due credit for
the work that he did. O
Weak Helpers

In speaking of the rest of the Amer-
ican commission, Mr. White said that
none of them were strong men.
Mr. White gave a very entertaining
account of the debate over the ques-
tion whether there should be one or
two documents. While the President
was in America the American com-
mission signed sealed and delivered

BELGIAN PRELAE
WILL SPEAK I
HILL AUITORIUM
MERCIER KNOWN AS "FI4HTING
CARDINAL" FOR DEFIANCE
OF HUNS
CARDINAL KNOWN FOR
EDUCATIONAL WORK
Churclman Holds High Regard for
American Educational
System ,
Cardinal Mercier will speak to the
students of the University at 4 o'clock
Monday afternoon in Hill auditorium.
It was announced at the close of the
Convocation exercises that the Belgian
prelate would come to 'Ann Arbor
from Detroit at noon Monday. He
will make the trip from Detroit by
motor, and while in Ann Arbor will
be the guest of Father Burke.
Unable to Come Friday
The regents of the University made
an attempt to get Cardinal Mercier
here for the Convocation exercises,
but due to other engagements he was
unable to accept the ivnitation. Car-
dinal Mercier has been a visitor at
several universities in the United
States, and has shown an apprecia-
tion of the educational system that
has won the heart of all scholars
with whom he has come in contact.
Former Educator
Before becoming a Cardinal of the
'church he was an accomplished teach?
er and has had a profound influence
on Belgian education.
Cardinal Mercier has shown his
high regard for American universities
by his sincere and simple expres-
sions of thanks at the several hon-
ors that have been conferred upon
him by various universities.
MINERS ANDOPERATORS
TO RE-CONVENE TUESDAY
Washington, Oct. 17.-Failing after
an all day conference to avert a strike
of nearly half a million coal miners,
called on the very eve of winter, Sec-
retary of Labor 'Wilson tonight invited
miners and operators to send their
,full scale committee to Washington
next Tuesday when another effort to
bring about peace in the industry
will be made.
Invitation Accepted
Both sides accepted the invitation.
This did not offer any great hope, how-
ever, for representatives of the oper-
ators stood firm in their deteymination
not to negotiate any demand for a sir-
hour day and not to deal with the un-
ion unless the strike set for Nov. 1
was called off.
John L. Lewis, acting president of
the United Mine Workers of America,
whose word probably would swing the
union one way or the other, showed
that he was laboring under a terrible
strain when he left the three-corner-
ed meeting. ,
"Reconvention Useless"
Speaking to a group of reporters,
he said he had told Secretary Wilson
that the 32 members of his wage scale
committee would be here Tuesday to
meet an equal number on the other
side but that it would be useless to
re-convene the joint interstate wage

conference unless the operators
changed their stone wall attitude and
indicated their willingness to frame
another agreement.
Thomas T. Brewster, representing
the coal operators, hurried away from
the secretary's office and refused to
talk but later sent word to Mr. Wilson
that his scale committee would be on
hand for the joint meeting.

FLAG-STAFF TO BE
DEDICATED TODAY
Those attending the game this aft-
ernoon will have the opportunity of
,witnessing an impressive ceremony,
,when the new ' memorial flag-staff
will be dedicated.
President Harry B. Hutchins will
inaugurate the memorial in service
to the University's dead by raising
the Stars and Stripes above the Maize
and Blue while those in the stands
show tribute by uncovered heads.
Promptly at 2:15 o'clock the Var
sity band will enter the field, going
to the west end; and then returning
to face the flag-staff. The flags will
then be raised during the playing of
an appropriate selection.

Miss Farrar will sing Puccini's aria,

as one of the stars of last season's
May Festival. He has recently been
made a member of the Metropolitan
Opera company. Mr. Hackett cones
of a singing family, his two brothers
possesing tenor voices that are receiv-
ing more than passing comment in the
musical circles of the east. T'hey have
all studied with Arthur Hubbard of
Boston.
Renard New Pianist
Rosita Renard is practically a new
pianist to North Americans. She
comes from Santiago, Chile. She com-
pleted her musical education in Europe
and made her debut in the principal
South American cities. Miss Renard is

season including apperances with the

cert. Seats will be arranged on the
stage.

The meeting was opened by an ad-
dress by Paul Scott Mowrer former
