A decided climb in. the average of
the general fraternities is one of the
most noticeable of the changes in the
corrected- edition of the comparative
scholarship chart for 1918-1919 of all
house clubs which is now being mailed
from the Registrar's office.
Fraternities Listed
The list of fraternities follow in
their order on the chart: Beta Phi.

Theta, Phi Kappa Sigma, Alpha Tau
Omega, Theta Delta Chi, Delta Up-

Athletes Average C
The average standing of all men
:who toolk part in Varsity athletic con-
tests is given. Registrar Arthur G.
Hall said in regard to this: "The ath-
letes' standing is comfortably aboveC
grade,- the graduation requirement."
This refutes the group which argued
that athletes were very low in their
work, and that group which argued
that athletes were being pushed ahead
by the faclty."
Kappa Alpha Theta leads-the gener-
al sororities which have taken a slight
drop since the year 1917-1918. Nu
Sigma Nu is at the head of the pro-
fessional fraternities which dropped

Washington, Jan! 8.-A split be-

Bryan over whether 'the League of
Nations should be made an issue of
the coming election topped off the
Jackson day deliberations of the Dem-
ocratic party chiefs.
It came at the Jackson dinner, as
the climax of a day in which San Fran-

place of the Democratic National con-
vention on June 28 and it charged

propositions in the balloi. Earl W.
Dunn, '22L, and Claude L. Benner,
'20, will discuss in debate form the
points on both sides of the proposi-

Prof. Adams Writes Article
A paper by Prof. tHenry Carter
Adams, head of the economics depart-
ment, on the Shantung situation
around which so large a part of the
treaty opposition centers, will appear
in Saturday's issue of The Daily..

President Wilson, in his message
read to the diners, declared that the
"clear and single way out" was to sub-
imt.the question to the voters as "a
great and solemn referendum."
Mr. Bryan, showing all the old time
vigor with which he led the fight for
the president's nomination at Balti-
more in 1912, declared that the Dem-
ocratic party could not go before the
country on the issue, because it in-
volved a delay of 14 months and meant
success only if the Democrats captur-
ed a two-thirds majority of the sen-
The disagreement between the pres-
ident and his former secretary of
state, the first in public view since
Mr. Bryan left the cabinet because he
did not agree with the . president's
course in diplomatic negotiations with
Germany was thus disclosed as a fact,
although it had been rumored and re-
ported in the underground currents of
national politics. In the opinion of the
political leaders it crystallized an is-
No Mention of Third Ternt.
President Wilso in his message
said nothing whatever about a third
term for himself and neithre did he
make an informal announcement of
his ir.tended retirement to private life,
as some had forecast he would. Mr.
Cryan said nothing bearing on any
ambition toward a fourth presidential
nomination although it variously had
been predicted he would.
There were. a dozen or more speak-
ers at the dinner and their views on
whether the league should be a cam-
paign issue were either divided in
favor of the president's or Mr. Bryan's
views or else they did not touch on the
subject sat all.
The gist of their speeches might be
summarized in this fashion:
Senator Pomerene: ratify the treaty
with or, without reservations.
Fo'rmer Se'refary MeAdoo: an ar.-.
raignment of Republican administra-
tion but no expression about the
Senator Hitchcock: Honorable com-
promise on the league question or a
fight to the finish. '
Senator Owen: Immediate ratiftl
cation of thd trieaty and -reconstruc-
tion legislation.
Labor Autocracy Looms
' Governor Cornwell. W. Va.: Ameri-
can institutions are in danger of b-
ing overthrown by the unchecked
growth of "a labor .autocracy."
Attorney General Palmer: The war
will not be over in fact until the is-
sues which it has' raised are passed
upon by the great court of appeals
in Amerioa and the judgment of the
people is entered.
Most all of President Wilson's mes-..
sage was devoted to an expression of
his argument of why he considered It
the duty of the United States to join
in the League of Nation's covenant.
President Expresses Attitude
The president expressed his attitude
towards reservations in this language
"If the senate wishes to say what
the' undoubted meaning of -the treaty
is I shall have no objection. There
can be no reasonable objection to in-
terpretation accompanying the'act of
ratification itself. But when the treaty
is acted upon I must know whether it
means that we have ratified or reject-
ed it . We cannot rewrite this treaty.1
We must take it without changes
which alter its meaning or leave it,
and then after the rest of the world
has signed. it, we must face the un-
thinkable task of making another and
separate kind of treaty , with Ger-

Commenting on the right of the Re-;
publican majority to decide the sen-
ate's course Mr. Bryan declared:
Must Secure Compromise
"Our plan has been rejected and we
must face the situation as it is. We
must either secure such compromises
as may be possible or present the is-
sue to the country. The latter course
would mean a delay of at least 14.
months and then success only in case
of our securing a two-thirds majority
of the senate. We cannot afford either,
as citizens or as members of the par-
ty to share with the Republican party
responsibility for further delay; we
cannot go before the country on the is-
sue that such an appeal would pre-7
sent. A majority of congress can de-
clare war. Shall we make it more dif..-
fictlt to conclude a treaty than to en-
ter a war T"
