Encounter Difficulties in Discussion
of Far East Prob-
NAVAL QUESTION SETTLEMENT
NEAR; ONE OBSTACLE REMAINS
(Byy Associated Press)
Washington, Dec. 14. - The arms
:-onference delegates have reached an
agreement on all the major issues of
the naval ratio, but are encountering
new difficulties in their discussion on
the Far East.
"5.5-3" Forms Basis
The American "five-five-three" ratio
forms the basis of the naval settle-
ment, but there are to be readjust-
ments in the original American plan
to permit Japan to retain her new bat-
tleship Mutsu. The United States and
Great Britain will be given a compen-.
sative quota of additional ships not
yet determined in detail.
In the Far Eastern negotiations th
latest element of controversy is a re-
quest by China for abrogation of the
reaty resulting from Japan's famous
"21 demands." When the request was
?resented to the Far Eastern commit-
'ee of the whole today the Japanese
promptly objected and the committee
Shantung Negotiations Critical
Coming at a time when the Shantung
negotiations are at a critical stage
the Chinese abrogation proposal has
somewhat beclouded the prospect of a
Far Eastern agreement, but most of
the delegates remain confident of an
Another meeting of the "big three"
late today advanced the naval question
nearer to the point of a final and de-
tailed settlement, unless some minor
points still to be determined.
Charles Evan Fowler, of New York,
designer and chief engineer of the De-
troit-Windsor bridge, delivered an iI-
lustrated lecture upon "The Evolu-
ion and Architecture of Bridges." be-
fore a capacity audience in the Natur-
al Science auditorium last night, un-
der the auspices of the Engineering
Mr. Fowler outlined the develop-
ment of bridge building from the mud
brick arches built 4,000 years before
Christ, found in the ruins of Babylon,
to the proposed Hudson river bridge
with its span of some 3,000 feet.
"Most of the architectural qualities
of bridges must lie in beauty of struc-
ture, rather than in external decora-
tions," said Mr. :Fowler. For this
reason, he explained, there can never
be the extensive development of differ-
,nt types of bridges that is found in
most kinds of structure.
NO MAIL SITUATIONS FOR
STUDENTS DURING HOLIDAYS
Students will not be employed by
the railway mail service during the
coming holiday season because of the
great number of unemployed men
throughout the country. The service
s flooded with applications for jobs
during th Christmas season, many of

The University of Michigan is said
to have without a doubt the greatest
amount of genuine music published of
any school. Six of the most popular;
of these songs have been recorded by
the Brunswick people.
The Criterion Quartette (which will
be called the "University Quartette"1
on records) sing "When Night Falls,
Dear" and "Ann Arbor Days". The
Criterion Quartette seem somehow to
have gathered an infinite amount of
real Michigan spirit which they have
succeeded most effectively in putting
into their singing. An interlude of
the Campus Chimes lends an atmos-
phere to the singingrwhich will per-
haps make "Ann Arbor Days". very

"College Days" and "Yellow and

De Valera and the members of the
delegation were sharply divided on
the question. De Valera contended
that the treaty should not have been
signed without its having first been
referred to the ;Dublin parliament;

that they and their colleagues had the
power invested in them to sign an
agreement but not the authority to
conclude it. Mr. Griffith, of the dele-
gation, asserted that the representa-
tives of the Dail Eireann and the
British cabinet in this respect were in
identical position as each was obli-
gated to refer the treaty to their re-
spective legislatures for ratification.
