Wilson informed the senate today that
he had not entered into any agree-
ment or understanding with officials
of Great Britain, concerning the sale
of former German liners, seized in
American ports nor had he entered'
into an agreement or understanding
with respect to what disposition should
be made of them by the United States.
At the same time he transmitted
to the senate a copy of a "proposed
agreement" between the allied and as-
sociated government at Paris under
which each is to retain its own "the
complete title to and use of all ships
captured, seized or detained during
the war as a war measure."

Detroit, Feb. 20.-A gift of $1,000,-
000 by an alumnus of the University,
whose name he would not divulge, will
be made in the near future, President
,larry B. Hutchins announced at the
University of Michigan club meeting
Friday night. The use to which the
money wilt be put, was not stated.
Detroit, Feb. 20. - "My only policy
after July It as president of the Uni-
versity, will be to watch the wheels
of the University go around," said
President-elect Marion L. Burton to-
night in one of the most inspiring talks
ever given before a University group,
wen he spoke to about 200 prominent
alumni of the University at the fore-
most testimonal dinner given in' his
honor at the Detroit Athletic club.
"The University does not need a
major operation," he stated.
"Clear Thinking Needed"
Dr. Burton spoke at some length on
the problems of the day, stating that
the universities must take caie of the
thousands of students who are flock-
ing to them today. "Clear thinking is
needed iroday, far more than before,"
said the future Michigan' president.'
'Democracy not only gives but de-
mands - and demands intelligence.
The future of America depends upon
co-operation of the intellectual men
of the country and the conservative
labor leaders. Superficial thinking is
the greatest fault in America today,"
he said.
That Americans should have a sa-
cred regard for the ballot box and that
the greatest asset was our wealth of
relationship with one another, were
other points that Dr. Burton empha-

President Hutchins also spoke, and;
he gave reasons which he thought
brought Dr. Burton to Michigan. The
strategic position of the University,
being the center of the Middle West,
and the fact that students come froml
both the East and West, making the
University the most cosmopolitani
school in the country, were important
factors in securing Michigan's new
president, stated President Hutchins.

which he characterized as being;
second to none in their backing of the
University, shown by the fact that#
more than $3,000,00 has been received;

appreciation of his services to the'
University, the Board of Regents at
their meeting Friday accepted the res-
ignation of the oldest professor on the
carpus-Isaac Newton Demmon. The
Regents also recommended Professor

living faculty member, his title to the
oldest. professor being due to the fact
that he was appointed to full profes-
sorship before Professor Beman.
Aided Library Collections
Professor Demmon, besides occupy-
ing a chair in the English department,
has since 1880 been a member of the
library committee of the Faculty and
has devoted a large part of his time
to bibliographical studies aid to the
development of various collections of
the University, notably the dramatic
collection and the McMillan Shake-
speare library. In addition to being
a expert bibliographer, Professor
Demmon is an authority on rare books.
He is the editor of the "History of
the University of Michigan," complet-
jng the work of Prof. Burke A. Hins-
dale, who died before the volume had
teen finished.
Parents 'Wef Pioneers
Isaac Newton Demmnon was born at
Northfield, Ohio, in 1842, the eldest
sn of Leonard and Nancy Demmon.
Leonard Demmon settled on the West-
ern Reserve in 1838, but -seeking an
outdoor life, and having acquired
lands in Indiand, he removed there
wn.h his wife and two children in the
fall of 1844. The son thus grew up
with his full 'share of pioneer experi-
He received such training as the
county district school could offer, and
at the age of 11 was sent to a private
school in a little vilage three miles
away. He made the trip to and from
school on foot each day, progressing
so rapidly with his work that by his
15th year he was prepared to enter
t!e University of Michigan.
Graduated in 1868
Largeness of family and the neces-
sity of work on the farm prevented
his entering college until his legal
manhood, in 1863. His scholastic ca-
reer was interrupted by his enlistment
in the 132nd Indiana infantry d n
1864. He was graduated from Michi-
gan in 186. The degree of Master of
Arts was awarded him three years
later. He was married in 1871 to
Miss Emma Regal. A professorship
at Hiram college and the principalship
at Ann Arbor high school were his
services before entering the Uiliver-
sity as assistant professor of rhetoric
and history in 1876.
Since 1903 Professor Demmon has
been Professor of English and also
holds the title of Curator of rare

W~hington,, Feb. 20. - With the ap-
pointment of a committee of seven
prominent farm organization leaders
to draw up a platform, the American
farmer, as represented through the
national board of farm organizations,
served notice today on present and
prospective presidential candidates
that it determined to participate ac-
tively in the coming campaign. The
platform will comprise questions de-
signed to bring out unmistakably the
attitude of each candidate upon mat-
ters which agriculturalists consider of
paramount importance.
C. S. Barrett, of Georgia, president
of the National Farmers' union, was
made chairman of 'the committee.
"The committee," Chairman Barrett
said, "will demand a most compre-
hensive and unmistakable statement
of the position of each candidate on
questions especially relating' to agri-
culture. The farmers will not submit
to comflagouge; moreover, the commit-
tee will try to determine, before sub-
mitting its finding to the farmers,
just what ability a candidate may
have to cal'ry out his pre-election
promises. We must get behi d a

has designated the first week in March
to be known as thrift stamp week.
