Taft Favors League of Nations;
Approves College Referendum

- - -




e No

"I am in favor of the League of Na-
tions even if we should have to a6-
cept it unamended, but I believe in
modifying it to suit myself if I can,"
Hon. William Howard Taft ,told a
Michigan Daily representative at the
Michigan Central station last night
before boarding the 9:43 ti'din for
New Haven, Conn., ,where he is a
professor of constitutional law at the
Yale law college. He was unwilling
to express himself fully on the League
because his train was expected in a
few minutes, and he said he would
require an hour and a lalf to speak
on it if he once began.
Regarding the Shantung clause, Mr.
Taft said that he approved of it, pro-
vided Japan furnished assurances that
she would abide by her promise to
China. He declared himself highly
elated with the referendum vote that
had been taken on the League by most
of the colleges in the country, and
stated that it deserved important con-
sideration as reflecting the opiniqn of
the largest educated group in thej
United States.


The position that he takes on the
League is a compromise between the
Lodge and the Democratic reserva-
When interrogated about Pres. Mar-
ion L. Burton of the University of
Minnesota,she said: "I was acquaint-
ed with President Burton both at
Smith college and the University of
Minnesota and consider him one of
the finest university executives in the
country. I felicitate Michigan on hav-
ing secured him as its next presi-
dent. I sympathize with you, however,
for losing President Hutchins."
Arriving in Ann Arbor about 6
o'clock, Mr. Taft was entertained at a
dinner at the Michigan Union, attend-
ed by President Harry B. Hutchins,
Dean Henry M. Bates of the law
school,' Prof. Thomas C. Trueblood,
head of the oratory department, Prof.
Jesse B. Reeves, head of the politi-
cal science department, and Rev. Lloyd
C. Douglas. Mr. Taft commented on

Superior Shooting and Passing Gives
Verdict to Indiana Court
Brilliant defense, with which Michi-
gan could not cope, and accurate bas-
ket shooting, won for the University
of Indiana in the game with the Wol-
verines Saturday night, 22 to 9. Michi-
gan was outclassed in every depart-
nient of the game, the Maize ind Blue
basket shooting being especially
Passing Wild
Dunne and Henderson were entire-
ly out of usual form, and the entire
team seemed to be taking a night off,
as far as basketball was concerned.
The Varsity was not able to advance
the ball, save by long passes. Time
after time the leather was thrown
away as a result of a poor pass. The
five man defense, that has held down
the score of every team that has op=
posed. Mich an thus far, was not
strong, and except in the last part of
both halves, Indiana was able to break
through at will.
The Hoosier team was light, fast,
and clever at passing. By means of
their accurate pass they were able to
get near their basket and score the
counters that gave them the verdict.
At the start of the game they worked
'the ball down the floor, and Byrum
dropped in a long shot for the first
two points.
Indiana Team Work Good
The passing of the Indiana five dur-
ing the first half was exceptionally,
good, though when the ball "vas un-
der the basket their shots were us-
ually blocked by Wilson or Rychener.
At the Indiana end of the floor Michi-
gan put up the strong fight that char-
acterizes Maize and Blue outits, but
once away from the danger point, the
men seemed to let down and the play
was poorer,
Indiana secured all the points they
threw in the first half, 12, before the
Mich gIul ifowards were able to locate
the ring. Then Henderson caged a
short one, and Rea followed this on
the tip-off wth a long shot from the
middle of the floor. With th1t encoor-
agement Michigan took a brace, and
for the rest of the half had the edge
on tho visiting quintet. Rea made the
fifth point on odunter from the foul

Titkets have been distributed among
the various fraternities, which are

sity hall, the Library, and the new

(By Associated Press)
New York, Jan. 17.-Raids and de-
portations of the sq unsettled foreign
born population that hundreds em-
ployed in basic Industries are prepar-
ing to leave the United States, accord-
ing to the Inter-racial council which,
tonight, announced the launching of a
campaign "to make aliens better un-
derstood and and to lift them from the
status of mere, clogs Ina machine, to
the status of human beings."
The council of which Coleman Du-
Pont is chairman and which includes
more than 400 leading financial and
industrial organizations representa-
tives of nearly all the races in Amei-
ca, purposes In its campaign, accord-
in' to announcement to accomplish
the following objects:
Outline Platform
"To offset most of the propaganda
of Bolshevik nature.
"To promote better relations among
the races in America, by presenting
the side of the foreign born and trans-
lating America to them in terms they
will understand, to end unrest among
the foreign born in industry.
"The recent raids and the deporta-
tion of aliens who have urged the de-
struction of government by force are
being interpreted by many of the
foreign born as a campaign of r -
pression against the foreign tern In
general," said a 'statement by the
council. "Hundred& are throwing
down their tools preparatory to leav-
ing this country.
Increasing Restlessness
"This condition not only is increas-
ing the restlessness in practically all
factories and mines but it is tending
further to decrease production which
is already hindered, as an aftermath
of the war."
American industry the statement
says is short 4,000,000 emigrants in
the field of primary labor owing to
the 'tremendous falling off of immi-
gration during the last five years and
the statement says immigration au-
thorities at New Yark believe that im-
migration in 1920 will be less than
one-third of normal.

"eecoa mendations Made #t Meeting in
Detroit; to Be Announced Later
Recommendations regarding action
to be taken in the solution of the ath-
letic problem at Michigan will be
made in the near future to the Board
in Control of Athletics by the "M"
club and the Detroit Alumni associ-
tion, as a result of plans formulated
at a joint meeting of representatives
from the two clubs held Saturday aft-
ternoon in the University club, De-
troit. 1
It was decided that nothing re-
garding the recommendations should
be given out until after the spokesman
of the two clubs has met with the
board and discussed the plans adopted
at Saturday's meeting. This has been
done in order that all parties may
be given an opportunity to have .their
ideas considered without prejudice be-
fore action is taken.
As the board had previously an-
nounced its receptive attitude toward
alumni suggestions, and had author-
ized a meeting on the matter, the two
clubs await the board's decision as to
the place and time for the discussion.

Booth to Be Assigned Later In Week
with Allotment by Drawing
Tickets for the 1921 Hop will be
mailed out Monday. As more than
600 appieations have been received
it may be found necessary to con-
inne tie work until Tuesday, accord-
tug to Robert McKean, who is in
'charge of the ticket sale. .
All those who askeif fn tielwts and
whq d n:4t r.eetve them will have
4140y cheeks returned to them as soon
as possible. The booths will be as-
signed later in the week, the same
method of allotting being used as last
year, that of drawing. Although the
committee is not sure of the exact
number of booths which will be con..
structed, R. Dillon, 21E, chairman of
the committee, said that there will be
about 35.
The committee has decided that no
corsages will be allowed on the floor.
The second orchestra has been secur-
ed, but the committee was unwilling
last night to say what orchestra it

is supposed.
"The American public has in three
instances shown that when the rest-
less group has tried to assert the au-
thority and power of the laboring man
in defiance to the safety and comfort
of the people, it believes in the pres-
ent form of government and has been
able by the strength of its opinion
to defeat these attempts.
"The first case was at the time of
the Boston police strike. The coun-
try supported Governor. Coolidge's
stand to such an extent that no op-
position was offered to it.
"The second case was at the time
of the steel strike. Although I be-
lieve that Mr. Gompers was right in
,his plea for collective bargaining,
nevertheless the leaving of the con-
ference at Wagpington by Mr. Gom-
pers and his declaration that he would
make the conference welcome him
back was resented so much by the
,public that the strike failbd.
Public Triumphs
"The third time the public triumph-
ed over soviet ruel was when the coal
strike failed. The evidence in this
case is so conflicting that it would
need a careful consideration to jus-
tify the claims of either side, but the
attempt of the coal- miners to shut
down industries and discomfort the
public was defeated agin by the lack
of public backing," he concluded.

Prof. S. L. Bigelow of the depart-
ment of chemistry, will talk before the
freshman assembly at 3 o'clock Mon-
day afternoon. -This will be the sec-
and of his series of three lectures be-
fore the freshmen on "A Scientist';
Point of View." '
Directly following Professor Bige-
low's lecture, Colonel Robert Arthur,
professor of military science and tac-
tics will speak to the freshmen con-
cerning the R. 0. T. C. from the liter-
ary student's viewpoint.,
