Labor Party Urges Members to Stand
by Miners Against Power of
Organized Capital
(By Associated Press)
London, April 7. - Another day of
tense alternation of hope and fear end-
ed with one of the prime minister's
characteristic eleventh hour interven-
tions, brin'ging renewed prospects that
the grave industrial crisis will be
averted. He announced in the house
of commons tonight the willingness of
the government to participate 'in a
conference to discuss the question of
pumping before other matters were
Informal conferenfces continued
throughout the evening in an endeav-
or to induce the miners to relent on
the question of resuming pumping as
a preliminary move to 'negotiations,
and it was supposed that the whole
question was turning on this slendr
Plan Brings Hope
Premier Lloyd George had been ab-
sent, during 'the latter hours of 'the
d te on thetsituation, but returned to
the house unexpectedly at 11 o'clock
and informed the members that the
government had agreed to a course,
which it is believed practically cer-
tain the miners will accept - the call-
ing of a conference of owners and
miners to discuss with the goverment
the difficulties relative to pumping the
mines before touching upon the ques-
tion of wages and other matters in-
volved in the demands of the inen.
Reason for Change Unknown
What steps led up to this change of
front are unknown as yet. The coun-
cil of the independent labor party to-
day called upon its member, to sup-
port the miners by every means in
their power, declaring the crisis was
due t0 an attempt on the part of or-
ganized capitalsxi to establish the
right of unlimited plunder and de-
grade the standard of living, which
must be resisted at all costs.

will carry "Top o' th' Mornin'" toc
eight cities, leages the Michigan Cen-t
tral station at 1:20 o'clock railroad

Study of the arts of Oriental peo-
ples in the near and far East, to be
introduced by the course of Prof.
Herbert R. Cross, of the fine arts de-
partment, on Oriental art in the
Summer session, is a new thing in
this country, according to Dean E. H.
Kraus. This is the first time that a
course has been given in the subject
in the United States, although some
attempt has been made in recent years
to learn more of eastern peoples by
artists and research workers.
Professor Cross, in an interview,
said that collections of eastern art in
this country are very meager, Mich-
igan owning practically nothing of
the sort and the only one of any size
being in Boston.
Six courses in actuarial, statistical,
and financial mathematics will also
be offered in the Summer session, ac-
cording to a special announcement
that may be secured at Dean Kraus'
office. These courses are open to
regular students of the Summer ses-
sion and, according to the Dean, of-
fer special advantages for individual
Applications for the French house,
where a special French environment
will be offered, have been so many as
to nearly fill its capacity, according to
Prof. A. G. Canfield, who is in charge
of the plan. He urges' that any. new
applicants for admission inform him
as soon as possible if they hope to se-

fornia, under the auspices of various
Michigan alumni associations, will
rally to the standards of the Maize
and Blue, in reserved sections.

was initiated last November, will not
be disclosed until the receipt of the

the event that the four powers do not
find their way to an agreement with
the American viewpoint there would
arise a situation, action on which of-

has. been rejeased from his three year
