Would Take Immediate Effect Between
Five Great rowers of the
(by Associated Press)
Washington, Jan. 3.-The American
proposal to prohibit use of submarines
against merchant vessels, now the pre-
dominant issue of the arms negotia-
tions, has been accepted in principle
by France, but her delegates have de-
ferred finial approval pending a discus-
sion of the precise language of the
Italy and Japan to Approve
British acceptance previously has
been given, and although neither the
Italian nor the Japanese have receiv-
ed final instructions tonight; there
were indications that neither Rome nor
Tokio would interpose serious objec-
tions if the proposal received France's
full approval.
The exact nature of the French res-
ervation was not revealed, but the im-
pression was gathered in some quart-
era that it might concern just what
conduct would be expected from mer-
chantmen in view of their immunity
from submarine attack.
What Is "Merchant Ship"
Should that point be raised, an inter-
esting and many sided discussion
might result for in several quarters
there has been apparent a tendency
toward the opinion that the terms
"merchant ships" will be strictly de-
fined with express stipulations as to
whether merchantmen are to be per-
mitted-to arm and whether it is to be
permissable to disguise warships as
vesse s of commerce.
The French delegation, however,
in making known their acceptance in
principle, has emphasized that they
not only agree to the original propos-
al of Elihu Root that the new provis-
ion on submarine warfare becomes ef-
fective when all nations have agreed
to it, but also to the amendment of
Arthur J. Balfour which would make
the provision immediately effective as
between the five great powers.
Other Acceptance Awaited
At the same time the French have
accepted the additional Root declar-
ation under which any submarine
commander violating the rules of in-
ternational law would be liable to
/trial for an act of heresy. In regard
to this also acceptances still are
awaited from the other foreign govern-
ments. It is possible the deelgates'
instructions will be sufficiently com-
plete, however, to' permit a meeting
of the naval committee of the whole

In addition to debate over the rou-

Major Harrison Soule, Connected with
University 25 Years, Dies at
Age of 89
Major Harrison Soule, treasurer of
the University for 25 years, until he
resigned in 1908, died early Mondayl
morning at his home, 720 south Uni-
versity street, at the age of 89. Drop-1
sy was given as the cause of his
Had Many Friends
Major Soule was known to Ann Ar-
bor and University people as one, of
the most lovable and interesting men
in the community and incidents areI
told of his career, of his humor and
his popularity among all those whol
worked with him or knew him.
Originally a New York state man.
Major Soule came to Michigan: and
was educated in the Marshall
schools, later spending two years at-
tending Albion college. After spend-
ing a short time in business he went
into the employment of the Michigan
Central railroad which after three
years he left, at the outbreak of the
Civil war, to raise and drill the Al-
bion Rifle Rangers. This organiza-
tion later became Company I of the1
Sixth Michigan Infantry. Major Soule
was first a captain, and later promot-I
ed to major. He was mustered out
of the army in August, 1865.
Became Treasurer
He then returned to 'the employ of
the Michigan Central, where he re-
mained until 1883, when he accepted
the position of treasurer of the Uni-
A gradual failing of health for the
past two years led up to the death of
Major Soule, but his rapid dec'ine
sta'ted last summer, and he had been
very ill for some time before his
death. He is survived by his widow,
a daughter, Mrs. L. L. Clark of this
city, three grandchildren and six
great grandchildren.

Clements Library, Dental Addition
and Physics Building Are
Much progress hastbeen made in the
past two weeks on the new building
program. With ground being broken
in differentrplaces about the campus
preparatory to the erection of new
buildings, a greater Michigan is fast
becoming a reality.
Work on Clements' Library
Great strides have been taken in the
work on the Clements' library. Over
20 feet of the old Engineering build-
ing were razed in a few days, four
class rooms and six offices being torn
down in the process. At present a
steam shovel an a number of work-
men arebusy removing the ground
staked off for the site of the new li-
brary, and it will be but a short time
before all will be in readiness for the
laying of the foundation.
Addition to Dental College
Plans fot the Dental addition have
been completed and excavation has be-
gun. The Buildings and Grounds de-
partment of the University has been
given charge of this part of the work
and will lay the foundation, after
which estimates will be obtained from
different architects and the contract
let for the construction of the build-
ing proper.
Contracts Being Let
Work on the new Physics building
will soon be started. Borings have al-
ready been made and construction
companies approached regarding es-

Future of

His Native Country in
"The Political Situation in India"
was the subject of the lecture given by
Srinivasa Sastri, Hindu statesman and
orator, and India's delegate to the
armament conference in Washington,
last night in Hill auditorium under
the auspices of the Oratorical associa-
Has Representative System
The speaker stated that the present
government is but onetyear old and is
at present a machine representative of
the people but up until the time of
the adoption of "The Government of
India 1,Act " of 1919 by the British
parliament, the Indian government
was distinctly not representative. The
speaker then told of the vastness of
his native country and told of the di-
vision of the country into provinces
which correspond roughly to states in
this country. Each state or province
has its governing body and then the
whole is loosely controlled by the cen-
tralized power which is under the
3ritish government.
Expects Dominion Form Soon
Interesting to many was the state-
mnent by Mr. Sastri that he believed
dominion government to be very near
at hand for India which would put
that country in an equal plane with
Canada and Australia. However, the
speaker stressed the point that India
would never attain the status by en-
couraging a feeling of hatred towards
Englandf and declared that his people
could never attain absolute independ-
ence by brute force because the na-1
tives could not oppose so formidable
a power as the mother country.
Great Future for India
The keynote and summing up of
Mr. Sastri's lecture was that there is
a great future for India as a domin-
on of the British empire when that
status is attained and that that future
will, come about through the co-opera-
tion of the natives and the govern-
ment of Great Britain.
Mr. Sastri is of the Brahmin caste
in India, that is those of the priest-
hood, and received a very liberal edu-
cation in his native land. He is
spending his lifetime in working for
she upliftment of India and is a
thoughtful and eloquent critic of gov-
ernment. He is at present a member
of the Viceroy's council.
Tickets for basketball games will
be open to the public at large after
Jan. 10, until which time they will be
sold to students only.
With the return of the students from
the vacation the tickets have enjoyed
a slightly better sale, say the officials
in charge of the distribution, but there
are still a number that have not been
disposed of. These will be placed on
general sale after the first conference
games have been played.
Officials of the Athletic office state
that the proposed boycott of basket-
ball by some of the students was un-
fair and unwarranted in that Michi-
gan has done everything in -athletics
in the way of improvements by the
proceeds from the contests, and has
not depended upon contributions and
notes for large amounts from its
alumni and students. Since the inaug-
uration offbasketball the association
has seen fit to grant admittance by.
coupons from the athletic books, a pol-
icy not obligatory, much to the con-
trary of what some have thought.
This year that policy was shown to
be inadvisable.
The two groups of tickets are now
on sale at the Athletic office and
students may purchase both of the

In. a season that is the most un-
profitable yet experienced by profes-
sional theatrical productions through-
out the country, the 1922 Union opera,
"Make It for Two", made the most suc-
cessful road trip in the history of
Michigan shows during the Christmas
vacation, playing to crowded houses
and receiving the acclaim of all crit-
ics who viewed it. Financially it was
the most successful opera ever put on
by the Union, the advane indications
based on its reception in Ann Arbor
being fully carried out.
Meets with Great Success
The success of "Mae It for Two"
is declared to be a still greater ac-
complishment by Union officials be-
cause of the new territory in the
Middle West that was covered, a num-
ber of towns that had never been vis-
ted being on the list. The Middle
West is now declared to be opened
for the annual operas of Michigan,
since the enthusiastic reports of all
who saw the 1922 show can be expect-
ed to advertise the University among
the states of the Middle West.
Critics Applaud /
One Cincinnati paper declared that
"nothing better has been seen in this
city" and that "the University of
Michigan has made a place for itself
in Cincinnati." A Grand Raptds pa-
per said that "it surpassed all operas
of previous years." Another critic, in
Lima, Ohio, said that "professional
producers have much to learn from
the men who directed the Michigan
production." All other reviewers
along the route of the opera were en-
thusiastic, the costumes, scenery, and
dancing receiving the greatest share
of praise.
Coipany Entertained
The members of the cast, choruses,
and committees received an uninter-
rupted series of entertainments
throughout the two weeks from alum-
ni in the towns visited. Dances in the
afternoons and receptions and dances
in the evenings gave proof of the hos-
pitality of Michigan graduates and
their friends toward Michigan's repre-
sentatives in the student opera.
Members of the American Philolog-
ical association and the Archaeolog-
ical Institute of America were en-
tertained by the University in a joint
conference Dec. 28-30 in Ann Arbor.
Dean J. R. Effinger, of the literary
college, delivered the welcoming ad-
dress Wednesday evening, a smoker
for the men was held on the same
evening, a large luncheon for the vis-
itors was given at the Union Dec. 29,
followed by a reception that evening
at Betsy Barbour house.
Practically all leading American
universities were represented at the
meeting. A number of papers were
read, including ones written by Prof.
Campbell Bonner and Dr. J. P. Har-
land, of the Greek department, and
Prof. F. W. Kelsey, of the Latin de-
partment. A large number of visitors
attended the exhibition of Greek and
Coptic papyri which was purchased for
the University by Professor Kelsey
last year.
During the meeting, officers for both
oragnizations were elected, the Arch-
aeological institute electing Ralph V.
D. Magoffip, professor of violin at
Johns Hopkins and a Michigan gradu-
ate of the class of '02 ,as their presi-
dent, and Prof. F. G. Allinson, of

Makes Tenth Man to Be Picked from
Among Yostmen for High
Once again Walter Camp has chos-
en his mythical All-American football
team. Once again the name of a
Michigan man adorns that list of
In choosing "Ernie" Vick, Wolverine
star of the past four seasons, for the
center position of his mythical 1921
All-American eleven, Camp has paid
"Ernie" the most singular honor, in a
football sense, that any college foot-
ball player is capable of receiving.
Position of Honor
When the "dean of football critics"
places a man on his mythical eleven,
the stamp of that man's superiority
over the hundreds of other college
men playing at the chosen positio
upon the public mind is the only nat-
ural and immediate sequence. His
opinion commands respect in the foot-
ball world. Not-only is the man se-
lected honored but in no small way
is the glory reflected upon his coach
and school.
Coach Yost prides himself in hav-
ing had such an adept pupil as Viek.
To hear him speak of "Ernie" and to
watch that broad, characteristic smile
of his come into play as he does so
would leave little question as to that
score. g
"Camp made no mistake in select-
ing Vick for his center," said the
veteran Wolverine football mentor in
making mention of the 1921 mythical
All-American football team, yesterday
afternoon. "Ernie" is the most ac-
curate passer that ever put a ball into
play. Under pressure he was as de-
pendent and reliable as at any time.
Any sort of a player can show up well
while the sun shines, but it takes a
real player to stand up during- the
storm. Defensively "Ernie" is a won-
derful tackle.
Fourth Year on Team
"He is a good diagnostician-yes, he
is wonderful in diagnosing plays and
his judgment in sizing up the oppos-
ing attack is most uncanny. 'Ernie' is
one of the boys wiho has played upon
four Michigan teams, that is including
the S. A. T. C. eleven. He came from
Scott High school of Toledo, where he
played at half, but in casting about
for much needed center material Vick
was selected."
This, in short, is the tribute which
