Washington, Nov.14.-The real work
of the armament negotiations was
transferred today from the open con-
ference to the more secluded precincts
of the committee.rooms. After a de-
bate which. developed widely separate
views on the advisability of giving
publicity to the negotiations, the big
five, comprising the chief delegates of
the United States, Great Britain,
France, Italy and Japan settled on the
committee plan as the only acceptable
To countries whose membership will
be identical with that of the full con-
ference itself was assigned the task
of working out a solution for the Far
Eastern question. Another, composed
of all the delegates of the five great.
powers, was created to take over the
negotiations on the main topic of arm-
ament limitation. Since only the dele-
gates of the five powers are qualified
to act on armament limitation in the
conference, the result in each case
will be to resolve the delegates into a
"committee of the whole."
Although no official would make a
prediction prior to the assembling of
the two committees, the presumption
everywhere tonight was that the meet-
ing would be held behind closed doors
and that the public would get a
glimpse of the proceedings only in
their capacity as committee men.
Great Britain's acceptance "in prin-
ciple" of the American proposal em-
bracing suggestions for alterations of
the plan in several important details
will be presented in tomorrow's ses-
sion of the conference by Arthur J.
Balfour. Japan's acceptance "in prin-
ciple," although it has been forecast
by the statement of Baron Admiral
Kato, may be delayed as the Japanese,
mission is obligated to confer with
Mr. Balfour may not outline the de-
tails of the reservations Great Britain-
wishes to make, but they are substant-
ially described this way:
Instead of a flat ten year holiday
Great Britain wants to replace a pro-
gram which will be an elastic one-
spread over a period of years.

Men wishing to try out for
the business side of Chimes
may apply from 2 to 5 o'clock
any afternoon this week at the
coined, according to the Union recep-
tion committee, of which James G.
Frey, '22, is chairman. This is the
first large affair given officially by
any University organization in honor
of Mr. Frost, although a few recep-
tions have already been arranged by
smaller groups on the campus. The
meeting tonight will be altogether in-
formal in spirit, in accordance with
the wish of Mr. Frost.
A special gift to the University an-j
nounced last year by ex-Gov. Chase
S. Osborn has provided that the poet,'
who is 'recognized as among Ameri-
ca's leading literary men, should stay
in Ann Arbor for one year to meet
.he student body and influence it by
personal contact. The experiment is
a new one among American universi-
ties ,and will probably be continued
for some time if successful.
In "commenting on the reception
yesterday, Mr. Frost said, "I will wel-
come this opportupity to meet the stu-
dents of the Uni'versity in an infor-
mal way, as I have been limited in my
acquaintanceships so far during my
stay here. There are a great many
men in various departments of thep
University that I have so far been
unable to meet and'I hope they will
appear at the reception tomorrow
night. I haven't the slightest idea of
what I will say at the meeting, but
I will be sincerely glad to form new
friendships among any University
men that care to be present."
It was hoped that President Marion
L. Burton would be able to attend the
reception, but he was forced to make
a trip to New York today that will
prevent his appearance. Mr. -Frost
will be introduced by R. Emerson
Swart, '22E, president of the Union.
Music will be provided during inter-
missions by a special orchestra.

November Chimes 1
Hardy Heth, '20, will tell about Eu-
ropean advertising in the November
issue of Chimes, out this week. Heth
is on the staff of the Chicago Trib-
une, Paris edition. The young man
interested in advertising will find
much of interest in the experiences of
this former Michigan man who has
not been out of school so long that he
cannot understand the problems of
the beginner in the field.
Prominent among the features of
Chimes this month is a symposium of
student opinion concerning the Yost
situation, which has been said to con-
tain the keenest analysis and clearest
thought of anything yet written upon
the subject, either here or elsewhere.
Captain Penberthy is the subject of
the cover, from an original photo-
graph by George Stone, photographic
editor of Chimes. James C. House,
Jr., '24L, art editor, has drawn -a por-
trait-frontispiece of Robert Frost,
which is accompanied by an interest-
ing article by Edwin R. Meiss,- '23,
concerning the poet.

Frank Murphy, '17, speaking for the
alumni asserted that in his opinion the
team today had brought more glory
to the University than any other team
in Michigan's history and that in the
game at Madison had showed more

Murphy branded as unspeakable the
action of certain alumni groups who.
on the eve of the game with Wisconsin,
made sweeping attacks against the
team and the coach. "For every voice
