Women Refute
Dance Boycott
Marguerite Chapin, '20, predident of
the \omen's league, expressed it as
her opinion last night that the Union
dances on Friday and Saturday nights
will be fully attended. This state-
ment is in refutation of the rumors
prevalent on the campus that the
women of the University intended to
cancel all Union dance engagements
because of the action of students in
-holding a general sing and get-to-
gether during the hours of 10:30 and
12 o'clock last Friday and Saturday
nights. These were the times desig-
,nated by Union officials for the tap,
room 'in the Union to be open to

Failing Coal Supply Prompts Urgent

making Must Wait
>mmittee While the joint conference was set'
the sen- fr this afternoon Dr. Garfield found
emocrats that a full attendance could not be
esolution obtained so it went over until to-
Senator morrow. Meanwhile word was pass-
nt as he- ed that the strike situation had
rt to be reached that point where action was
commit- regarded by federal authorities as ab-
solutely imperative.

Now General or Separate Treaties;
Declaration of Peace May
Adjust Difficulty
"If President Wilsoh should decide
that the recent 'reservations' to the
peace treaty, made by the senate, up-
sets the nature of the treaty, he has
the powerof completely reoalling it
from the senate," said Prof. Jesse S.
Reeves, of the political science depart-
ment, Tuesday.
"In that case, three things are
possible: first, that a new general
treaty be put before the senate; sec-
ond,, that a separate treaty with Ger-
many be declared by the United States
alone, with Germany alone; without
reference to the general treaty; and,
third, that congress pass a joint res-
olution declaring that, on and after a
certain date, the United States is .at
peace with Germany."
New Resolution Easily Executed
"The first, a new general treaty, is
out of the question because the pres-
ent treaty will be put into effect with-
out ratification by the United States
senate. Tho second, a separate treaty
with Germany, is possible, but not an
easy thing to execute. The third, a
joint resolution by congress, can be
quickly put through, but the extent
of the problems, legal and otherwise,
which would arise from such an ac-
tion, would stagger the imagination."
Professor Reeves stated that a com-i
promise with the antagonistic majority
of the senate was possible.
Several of the so-called reserva-
tions which the senate has made to
the peace treaty are, in the opinion of
Professor Reeves, amendments. It is
up to the president of the Uliited
States to decide whether they are
amendments or reservations, he show-
ed. Professor Reeves pointed out that
treaties were recalled by presidents
of the United States a few times be-
fore the Civil war and several times
since, when amendments to them by
the senate met with their disapproba-
States Reservations Necessary
The "reservations" which Professor
Reeves considrs to be amendments
are those where it is required that
three nations, in addition to. the Unit-
ed States, should accept the reserva-
tions; the list of questions that are
to be regarded by the United States
as purely§ domestic; and the reserva-
tion which says that the United States
will not submit to arbitration any
question that might arise under the
Monroe doctrine. "These require ac-
tion on the part of, or may concern,
other powers 'and, in my opinion, are1
to be considered as amendments," Pro-1
fessor Reees stated.
He distinguished between amend-
menbs and reservations by declaring,
that an amendment involved a mod-
ification o an international agree-
ment, whereas a reservation was the
interpretation of a treaty by the sen-
ate in the light of our constitutional
form of government.
Senate Has Amended Treaties
"Quite frequently the senate has
amfended treaties," Professor Reeves
said, "and, in that case, re-negotia-
tions with the other party to the
treaty are required, which party may

or may not accept the amendments.
The negotiations for the modification
of the treaty are carried on under
the direction of the president."
Having all the effervescence and
efflorescence of an opal sunburst,
and a scream from beginning to end,

goyle crpshed down the corridors of
time today. Its pages are agog with

In Football Strategy, Says Camp
(By Walter Camp)
But lliat has happened to football? Well, in the first place, the
knowledge of the gridiron game has been distributed far and wide dur-
ing the last few years. There are more and better players than ever
before, even the experienced coaches are far more experienced, de-
fensive tactics are far better understood and by no means confined to
the big fellows. There are dozens, 1f punters on minor teams who by
would have been regarded as real assets on hig teams five years ago.
Football has been 'disseminated by -competent' -instructors; but it
hasalso been d- istributed' "by competent players as ,well and
through' the direct 'channf of 'actual play during these years of war..'
Tlie public 'knoWs twice' the 'football-it did a decade ago and'so do the
players, whether- they wear one of the college, sweaters
of the Big /Three or of some one of the other colleges..
now, too, the numbers in attendance at state universities , and the
number of promising prep. school players that go to some other place
than Yale, Harvard or Princeton is beginning to make itself felt. There
was a time when a football play to be accepted and- tried had to have
a stamp of one of the big colleges. Now the advanced plays are far
more apt to come from the so-called lesser. colleges rather than to ;go
out to them..
The attack of -Colgate, Washington and Jefferson, Syracuse, Pitts
burgh and Dartmouth is far more- advanced than the attacks of the old-
er football universities of today. There is .a broader possibility in it
and it puts a harder prgblem up to the defense to meet it. And if
these colleges have the men and they certainly have-there is no rea-
son why they shoujd not win, just as they are doing. It is the history
of all things. 'And it is indeed well for the interests of the gridiron
game that it is so, for the future of this game depends not upon its
standing' still, but upon its developing still further. Colgate beat
Princeton by being just a little better in possibilities of atta9k; Dart-
mouth defeated Cornell for the same reason. The defense in both cases 1
was called upon to do far more in the exercise of wit and skill to
stop the broader offense, and sooner or later that will tell upon any
If the big fellows don't learn their lesson and take it
to heart they are going to fiend hard tumbles in their sched-
ule, not this year but next, The average football,,east, west
and south has more highly developedattack than has Yale or Prince-
ton or Harvard today. 'Sometimes these attacks are top-heavy, that is,
they haven't 'underneath them a broad basis of the fundamentals, and
in that case they fall down and then it is that we hear -the argument
advanced that all these shift plays and "hep" formations and fancy for-
ward passes are simply "bunk," wad1 that they are not as good as the
old standard simple plays well driven home. But that, is all wrong.
There are lots of these plays that, performed by men well trained on
fundamentals, will win every time against plays that have no real
masking, but depend upon drive of the line and hard striking backs.
And there is another thing worth taking into consideration and that is
.that playing against these more complicated plays tends to a =more
highly developed instinct for diagnosing quality of these teams. Ever
since Washington and Jefferson came up to New Haven and with Mc-
Creight thew forward passes over and all around the Yale team, and
practieally did the same to Harvard, the big fellows have had nervous
tremors, anc yet they have not improved either their own forward
passing or their defense to it as rapidly as many of the smaller teams.
The oniv way to defend against the forward pass is to have it played
freely day after day on the. practice field, and until there is more of'
it from the very beginning of the season the big fellows twill be vul-
nerable.-Reprint from Detroit Saturday Night.
