Faculty Suggestions For Regulation Of Political
Speeches Follolv Regents' Action Tabling Proposal






The action of the Board of Regents
in tabling the petition of the Student
council in reference to allowing po-.
litical discussions in Hill auditorium
did not meet with the unanimous ap-
proval of the faculty. Following are the
opinons of some of the faculty mem-
Prof. Claude' H. Van Tyne-I am in
favor of political discussions in Hill
auditorium provided that some re-
sponsible body of the University, such
as a committee of the Senate council,
was to pass upon the merits of the
speakers. It is unwise not to allow
responsible men of national high
standing, such as. former "resident
Taft,,to express 'their political opin-
ions to the fullest extent.

Prof. Robert T. Crane-Th? idea of
<conducting political discussions in the
Hill auditorium is a very good one. At
Oxford an organization known as the
Oxford union arranges for political
discussions for the benefit of stu-
dents, and since there are many stu-
dents at Michigan who are deeply In-
terested in politics, I have no doubt
but that much benefit could be de-
rived from discussions of thissort.
Mr. Ray K. Immel-A free discus-
soon of the political issues of the
day in Hill auditorium would eb an
ideal means of awakening the stu-
dents to the importance of national
and international affairs. However, a
committee should exist in order that'
the qualifications of the speakers

could be determined before the dis-
cussions took place.
Prof. Emil Lorch-We depend upon
college men to be leaders in world
affairs, and in order to be leaders
they should be allowed access to the
best opinions of the nation. The
responsibility of bringing political
speakers to the Hill auditorium could
be .left to a representative campus
committee. It ought to be relatively
easy, however, to ascertain in ad-
vance just what a speaker would be
most likely to say.
Prof. William Herbert Hobbs-The
plan submitted by the StiuAnt council
in reference to speeches of a political
nature being held in Hill auditorium
meets with my approval.

Field Marshal Von Hindenburg Re-"
ported to Be Favored by New
Regime as President
(By Associated Press)
Berlin, March 13.-The government
of Friedrich Ebert, the Socialist pres-
ident of the German- republic, was
overthrown today by a military coup
d' etat.
Dr. Wolfgong Kapp, one of the
founders of the government and gen-
eral director of the agricultural so-
cieties, has ousted Gustav Bauer, the
chancellor, and taking that office him-
self temporarily assumes supreme di-
rection of affairs.
There are no* two contending gov-
ernments in Germany, the new one
under Chancellor Kapp in Berlin, the
old one under President Ebert at Dres-
den. Officials of the new government
declare that it is not reactionary or
'monarchist. The president of the old
government and his ministers have is-
sued a proclamation calling upon the
people to rise in a general strike as
the. only mleans o, preventing the re-
turn of Wilhelm II.
Troops Occupy Berlin
Berlin is occupied by the troops of
the counter-revolution and the move-'
ment is spreading rapidly throughout
the provinces. Masses of troops and
naval brigades with artillery have
been brought into the capital and dom-
inate the situation. Thus far there has
been no outbreak and no bloodshed.
The Ebert government had knowl-
edge beforehand of the pending coun-s
ter revolution, but the precautions
taken proved to be entirely inade-
quate. Outside of the security policy
and the Nosk troops on patrol, noth-
ing indicated at 3 o'clock this morw
ing that Berlin would wake up to find
the Ebert government turned out. The1
president himself left Berlin with
some of his followers two hours aft-
or that time.

Field Marshal Von Hindenburg is
reported to be favored by the new
regime as imperial president, but thus

ground. A former minister of for-
eign affairs, Gottlieb Von Jagow and
General Von Falkenhausen, forimier

While the movement has ben car-

measures are expected soon, although
the Kapp government has taken pre-
cautions to place those memlbers of
.he former government who could be
reached under arrest.
In his proclamation, Chancellor
Kap says, "one of the new govern-
'ment's task is to carry out the peace
treaty while preserving the honor of
,the German people as nearly as the ex-

and does not meat self destruction."
