12,000 GUNS, 6,000 AIRPLANES DIS-
Workmen's Council Suggests Hostil
ties End; Agreement Not Yet
(By Associated Press)
Paris, March 27.-Discovery that
12,000 three inch field guns and 6,000
airplanes remain in Germany while
under, the terms of the treaty only
204 such guns and no airplanes
should be In her possession, caused
considerable skepticism here, as to
the real reasons for the request of the
Berlin government that it be permit-
ted to send troops into the neutral
and occupied zones, ostensibly to pre-
serve order.
Time Expired
The fact that the request came be-
fore the Germans had executed any
material clause of the treaty although
the time limit has expired on some
three score o its povisions is declar-
ed in French official circles to lay the
Germans open to suspicion of mak-
ing another move in efforts to pre-
vent the carrying out of their en-
It is asserted in official circles that
either the occupation of the Ruhr val-
ley by German troops or the organi
zation of a separate government there
would have as an ultimate effect, if it
is not the direct object, of further
dodging execution of the treaty.
Workmen Shelled I
Wesel, March 27. - Revolutionary
workmen are still holding virtually
unmolested the ground southeast and,
within a mile of this city' and last
night began marching troops to the
northeast repeating their attempts to
encircle the city. The movement,
however, " was effectually offset by
government troops. Since last night
not a shot was fired until the middle
of the morning 'when the guns in We-
sel began an intermittent shelling of
the workmen.
Troops Attack Sparteans
The Hague, March 27.-Government
troops at Wesel early today attacked
and drove the Spartacans eight kilo-
meters southeast of, the city, accord-
ing to an authorative Dutch source.
In the meantime reinforcements of
well organized government. troops
have reached the city. Fighting is in
progress near the Dutch frontier. The

Five Trunks Of
Costumes Arrive
For Opera Cast
With the arrival of the costumes
from Van Horn of Philadelphia yester-
day nothing remains to make "George
Did It" ready for the first perform-
ance Monday night, April 5, at the
Whitney theater except a few dress
Five large trunks of costumes com-
prised the order, most of which have
been especially done for "George Did
It" and fulfill in every respect the ex-
pectations of the designers, Reed
Bachman, '20, and Director Shuter.
The harlequin and oriental dancers'
costumes and the Folly girls' gowns
will rival those of most professional
productions, while the-picturesqueness
of the garments of the 1860" period'
will add greatly to the scenic effect
of the first act.
A special committee will be needed
to take care of the wardrobe while
the show is on the road.
First Year Swimmers Count Thirty-
five Points in Intramural
Swimmers of the Freshman class
scored an easy win in the interclass
meet held in the Y. M. C. A. pool last
night. Four firsts and a number of
seconds and thirds combined to give
the first year men a total of 35 points.
Their nearest opponents were the
Sophomores with 21, the Seniors com-
ing close behind them with 15. Ju-
nior swimmers could land only one
The individual stars of the meet
were Hubbard, '23, Dollavo, '23, and
Goldsmith, '20. Hubbard, the winner
of Friday night's 440 yard swim, again
scored a first place, winning the 220
in good style, as well as- copping third
in the 100 yard event.
Nears Big Ten Record
Dollavo's time of 20 4-5 seconds for
the 40 yard crawl is only a second be-
hind the Conference record for that
event and his victory in the 100 was
in the fast time of 1:02:2, several sec-
onds ahead of his nearest competi-
tors. In the 60 yard back stroke

"Patricia Passes," the sixteenth an-
nual Junior Girls' play, written by
Alice Beckham, hereby goes down in,
campus history as the best balanced
and most cleverly plotted of Junior
plays thus far given.
With more confidence in them-
selves, the leading roles displayed
greater ability and finish than in the
first performance. Jean Wallace and
Marie Crozier, as the two freshman
lovers, again held most interest of
the audience in the very able way in
which they took their parts. Eleanor.
Spencer, as Jack Warner, and Mar-
garet O'Reilly, as Coral Parker, made
one forget most of the time that the
talent was amateur.
Lead Scores Hit
Marjorie West, taking the lead as
Patricia Melton, scored the biggest
hit, because of her excellent voice. She
had only to act natural to be the al-
ways-equal-to-the-occasion Patricia.
The natural awe that every college
girl feels when in the presence of the
chaperon and, especially with a -pro-
fessor, too, was reawakened by Grace
Ohmacher and Helen Vowles who car-
vied those respective roles.
Yota San and Saki-Sama tvil linger
a great while in the memory of every-
one, because of the sympathetic way
that Frances Maire and Marguerite
Cavendish portrayed the parts. And
who could have guessed that Kranz
was in reality Eleanor Stephenson.
Marjorie Marsh and Dixie England
were excellent as the twins.
Producers Draw Praise
Special credit must be given the
producers for the clever setting. Mar-
cella Moon, as chairman of the whole
production, should 'share honors be-
side Prof. John L. Brumm, director,
for the splendid success of the whole
play.% Next in line should come Helen
Master, who had the extremely dif--
ficult' work of planning and arrang-
ing for all of the stage properties.
Thelma Fry,'as assistant chairman,
and Olga Johnson, as costume mana-
ger, contributed no little amounts to-

Preparatory to the campus presi-
dential straw vote to be held Thurs
day, The Daily is 'printing in three
installments short articles covering
the lives and principles of each of the
candidates. At 'least one man from
each of the party ballots will be con-
sidered each day, in the order of ap-
pearance on the ballots. Wherever
possible a leading supporter of the
candidate has been asked to write his
story; otherwise, The Daily has. com-
piled the data. Harding and Hoover
are today's candidates.
Senator Warren G. Harding, of
Ohio, Republican candidate, was born
in Corsica, O., Nov. 2, 1865. He was a
student in Ohio Central college from'
1879 to 1882. In 1884 he engaged in
the newspaper business in Marion, O.,

In journalism ever since, as the pub-
lisher of the Marion Star. He was a
member of the Ohio Senate from 1900
to 1904, and served as lieutenant-gov-
ernor of Ohio from .1904 to 1906. He
became United States senator from
Ohio in 1915.
Throughout his entire career he has
been known as a "booster" for every
progressive measure which he thought
could serve his community or the larg-
er aims of the.nation in which he lat-
er came to take a part. He vas noted
before and during the war for his
strenuous support of preparedness
measures in congress. He has served
on the committee of foreign rela-
tions, and has been in close touch
with conditions both foreign end do-
mestic during the last five years.
Senator Harding is a strong party
man. His principles in the present
campaign are those of opposition
executive dictation to the legislative
branch of government. He stands for

majority rule in any party as against
any outstanding personality.
(By Prof. U. B. Phillips)
Herbert Clark Hoover, whose name
is filed on both ballots, was born in
Iowa nearly 46 years ago. Ever since
his student days at Stanford univer-
sity he has been prominent as an or-
ganizer, a,\scientist, a business execu-
tive, and a leader of men. He has
quietly met every occasion with loy-
al efficiency. His management of Bel-
gian relief, which made him in Eu-
rope the best beloved of men, was but
He wants. America to ratify the
treaty, whether with or without res-
ervations, not because he is wholly
content with the treaty as it stands
but because he thinks it the best avail-
able basis upon which to build for
the future welfare of the world.
In the home field Hoover cham-

pions equality of opportunity." He
holds "that the object of all national
economic policy must be to improve
the standard of living of the whole
population." To secure this it is nec-
essary to maintain maximum produc-
tion; and competition, he says, is nec-
essary to that purpose. Accordingly
he is against socialism, syndicalism, +
and "all other important sjcial dis-
He maintains that corporations and+
trade unions alike must be held in
subordination to the public interest,
and that the nationalization of in-{
dustry must be avoided because it in-
volves bureucracy which deadens in-
itiative and fosters graft. He urges the
control of speculation and profiteer-
ing, the termination of financial in-I
flation, and the harmonization of cap-
ital and labor through the enforce-
ment of equity and through the pro-
motion of the workmen's direct in-
