Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
I wish to point out the fact that the
treaty reservations are radically dif-
ferent in nature. The so-called Lodge
reservations are of such form and na-
ture that they virtually have the ef-
fect of textural amendments while the
so-called Hitchcock reservations are
merely interpretive in character, stat-
ing to the world how the United
States understands the treaty, but not
changing the treaty in content or
The Hitchcock reservation states
plainly inf accordance with the evident
meaning of the article, that thie advice
which the council of the league of na-
tions is authorized to give in article
10 is to be considered as' nothing
more than advie; which the congress
of the United States may accept - or
reject with perfect freedoip, and that
the United States could not be in-
volved in a war under advice of the
league unless the congress of the
United States then in being should
adopt a declaration of war.
The United States and all other
signatory powers jointly promise that.
they will permit no aggression*
against one another's territories, and
that if any one of them is threatened
by territorial aggression the entire
league will come to help in some
manngr, of the nation thus threat-
ened. ? But in the light of our own res-
ervation the ways and means that each{
nation is to employ in preserving the
"integrity and independence" is left to
each individual nation to 'determine.
The only function of the council will
be to advise each nation as -to what
ways and means it will be best. to

Following Saturday morning's re-
view by'Prof. Henry C. Adams of the
much discussed Shantung provision,
The Daily prints in this column a
second article of information for stu-
dents and faculty who intend to -vote
intelligently on the treaty referen-
dum Tuesday. In it,' Prof Edward R.
Turner of the history department ex-
plains hii view of the Le gue of Na-
tions;, without doubt the greatest
storm center of treaty opposition.
Commenting on the campaign of
preparatory information to date, Fred
J. Petty, '21, chairman of the Student
council committee on the ballot, said
Saturday: "Information given to
those who attended the meeting last
Friday evening may clear up many
points which might have been misun-
derstood. The discussion was clearly
and concisely stated, in such a' way
that each one amight weigh the advan-
tages to be gained or lost by each
proposition. Open formus may be held
at the Union any time that is conven-
lent, before the election, and those
wishing to take part in such discus-
sions should leave word with Mr. Hur-
ley, at the Union.
Wants Representative Vote
"The committee hopes the vote tak-
en next Tuesday will be a truly rep-
resentative one, of both the student
and faculty bodies; for the results will
be combined with those received from
other colleges and universities in the
country, and given immediate public-+

ne Michigan defense 'was in a large"
easure responsible for the victory.
"Whitie" Wilson, the stocky little
card, was the individual star for the,
olverines. His guarding of the fast

arvelous. Rae, Dunne, and Hender-
