Final Vote Scheduled for Next Week;
Chances for Michigan Man
Appear Good
(By Associated Press)
Washington, Jan. 4.-Senate action
today girded itself for the final fight
on the Ford-Newberry election con-
test from Michigan.
Case Comes Friday
The case will be taken up Friday
under an agreement reached before
the Christmas recess and a vote on
the resolution declaring Truman H.
Newberry, the Republican incumbent,
the legally elected senator is expected
next week. His colleague, Senator
Townsend, Republican, Michigan, an-
nouncedytoday that he would speak
Saturday. Mr. Townsend also inform-
ed the Kalamazoo, Michigan, league of
women voters he would support Mr.
Close Vote Probable
A close vote with present indications
of a vote favoring Senator Newberry
is conceded generally by senate lead-
ers. Mr. Newberry's supporters ex-
pect a majority of from three to seven
votes, although a half dozen Republi-
cans listed as doubtful with teir ac-
ion said to depend in part on whether
Senator Newberry declines to keep i
his own rights. Some Repubcan
leaders were reported to have advised
the senator against taking the floor in
the senate, while others were said to
be urging that he address the senate.
Some close friends of the senator said
today they had assurances that he1
woul dcome here and speak probab-y
next week.
Evans To Give
Recial 'I oday
Due to the popularity of the twi-
light organ concerts in Hill auitor-
ium during the present semester, e
series wil be continued for the bal-
anceof the school year. At 4:15 o'clock
this afternoon Harry Russeli Evans, of
the School of Music faculty, will give
the first 1922 concert,
His program wiil include several
unusual numbers along with a gener-
ous rendering of the classics. Handel's
Largo in G, taken from the opera
"Xerxes", will open the program.
Then will come Bach's great Fantasle
and Fugue in G minor, Schubert's "Ave
Maria" and Stoughton's "Persian
Suite." The work from Bach shows
the freedom and virility of the com-
poser, surpassing all other works of
the same kind and believed by many
the greatest of Bach's fugues. In the
fantasie are passages of an expressive
declamatory character and a progres-
sion of chords unheard of at the time
of writing.
Mr. Evans will finish his program
with the "Persian Suite" by Stough-
ton,, made up of three parts: "The
Courts of Jamshyd (alla marcia), "The
Garden of Iran (lento), and "Saki"
(allegro scher ando). Jamshyd was
the fourth king of the Pishrarian dy-
nasty of Persia and his courta are
portrayed in a colorful oriental march.
Iram was a sunken garden planted by
King Shaddad and Saki is a cup bear-
er, who passes wine among assembled
guests. The inspiration for the work
is drawn from "The Rubaiyat" of Om-
ar Khayyam.
Girls To Revue

Winter styles will be revued at the
Women's league party at 4 o'clock Fri-
day afternoon in Sarah Caswell Angell
hall. Girls from eight women's houses
will appear in costumes which are the
vogue' or morning, afternoon and eve-
ning wear, each girl making six

Alumni Catalogue
To 21e Ready Soon
Harley L. Senseman, director of the
Alumni catalogue office, announced
yesterday that a new and up to the
minute alumni catalogue will be off
the presses within six months. It was
not possible to commence the final
work on the new catalogue util ac-
tion was taken by the Board of Re-
gents. The necessary steps were tak-
en at the last meeting of the Regents
in December and the work is now
speeding along with every member of
the catalogue office staff more than
The new catalogue will contain
nearly 60,000 names including every
graduate, non-graduate, and post grad-
uate that ever set foot on the cam-
pus. With the name of each will be
his or her numerals, complete pres-
ent address, indication of whether de-
ceased or alive, and what other school
the person may have attended.
The last general catalogue of the
University of Michigan was published
in 1911.

the voluntary subscription to "sustain-
ing memberships" at $10 each by the
editors in attendance.
Meetings Reported
All of the meetings of the organiza-
tion are reported and fully written
up, the formal speeches being given
in their entirety, and some of the
more important points brought up in
the discussions are reviewed. Prom-
inent among the addresses given at
the convention, which are published in
the pamphlet are: "The Michigan
Press and the University Department
of Journalism," by E. J. Ottaway, of
the Port Huron Times-Herald, presi-
dent of the Press club; "Progress of
Instruction in Journalism,' 'by Lee A
White, of the Detroit News; "What the

Among the shorter speeches, many
of which were parts of general dis-
cussions, are the talks given by Har-
ry M. Nimmo, editor of the Detroit
Saturday Night; Edmund W. Booth, of
the Grand Rapids Press;, E. G. Bur-
rows, of the department of rhetoric
and journalism; A. E. McCrea, of the
Muskegon Chronicle; Prof. Jesse S.
Reeves, of the political science de-

count, in brief, of the business meet-
ing of the organization and makes
mention of the dinners and luncheons

"Motion picture stars have the in-
telligence or army field officers," is
the statement which Richard M. Page,
'21, recently proved to be true after
conducting a series of tests with some
of the leading players in filmdom.
Page graduated from the University
in 1921. During his senior year here
he was an assistant to Prof. Henry
F. Adams, of the pscychology depart-
Page gave the actors and actresses
an examination along the line of the
army mental tests used in the war
He announced that the average grade
made by the players was equal to the
cverage of officers holding the rank of
malor or above.
He also announced that less than
half the members of the Students'
Army Trainng corps of the University
f California reached the average
made by the actors.
The highest possible score in these
tests is 212, a grade seldom, if ever,
reached. A grade of "A" requires 135
correct answers. In the individual
:coring, an actress, Patsy Ruth Mil-
ler, 17 years of age, made a grade of
184. This, Mr. Page says, is a record
which is not reached by more than one
college woman in a hundred.
Announcement appears in the Janu-
ary number of Chimes .of what prom-
ises,'to be Michigan's greatest short
=tory contest. Prizes aggregating $100
are offered, the winning story receiv-

Philadelphia, Jan. 4. - Gov. William
C. Sproul tonight announced that he
would not resign to take the senator-
ship made vacant by the death of Sen-
ator Bois Penrose.
"If I should ever desire to go to the
United States senate," said the gov-
ernor, "I shall submit my candidacy
fo the people of the state in the reg-
ular way-to the processes of nomi-
nation and election."

Basketball, the new wpman's build-

A complete story of the new Uni-
Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
Cincinnati was surely a busy town
during the recent holiday season.
Aside from the regular theatrical of-
ferings, there was a veritable whirl
of college activities, many schools hav-
ing chosen the Queen City as one of
their objective points on their musical
tours. And of all the excellent groups
of singers and players none was bet-
ter or better received than the one
from the University of Michigan.
There were beauty and correctness of
staging, costumes that were the last
word of the modiste, appropriateness
of form and stature as well as of
histrionic ability of those cast for the
various parts. The singing was excel-
lent, the dancing was superb and the
female impersonations were the best
the present writer has ever seen, not
even excepting Julian- Eltinge in "The
Fascinating Widow".
"It Might Have Come from Broadway"
Yet, it was great stuff. It might
have come from Broadway. It might
inded and there's the rub. When it
was all done I could not help wonder-
ing what father in the audience in
seeking a school for his son next year
would have been induced by this
opera to send that son to Michigan.
Would this performance, good though
it was of its kind but smacking of
New York and not of Ann Arbor, make
any father or mother say, "That's
where I want my boy to goto school?"
For the old graduate, and 1908 is not
so old, there was not one thrill, ex-
cept the incidental singing of "The
Victors", which he could not have got-
ten at the Lyric or Shubert.
Come back again, boys, and sing to

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
It may appear unseemly for one
member of the faculty to apologizel
for other members, but certainly an
apology is due to those students who
were required to take an examination,
the day that the University closed for
the holiday vacation, to those students
who were told that they might expect
an examonation on the first day fol-
lowing the holiday recess, (and to
those who were given assignments that
necessitated work during the holiday
It is difficult to understand the rea-
sons that would prompt the giving of
an examination on the-day that stu-
dents leave for their long-anticipated
vacation. Surely a person with even
the slightest knowledge of pedagogical
principles would know that few stu-
dents would be able to do themselves
justice at such a time either because
of difficulty to concentrate in an ex-
citement-charged atmosphere or be-

Disposition of Navy Limitation Plan
Is Matter of
(By Associated Press)
Washington, Jan. 4.-After a five
day New Year breathing space, the
arms negotiations were resumed to-
day with an interest and impetus that
swept some of the most troublesome
problems of the conference almost to
the point of decision.
Shantung Problem Up
Uppermost among the separate dis-
cussions that appeared tonight broach-
ing a conclusion was the controversy
between the Japanese and Chinese
over Shantung. It was indicated that
the conversation must end tomorrow
one way or the other and that the
predominating belief was that the re-
sult would be an agreement rather
than a final deadlock.
A final agreement also was in sight
on the question of a revised Chinese
tariff. After a long argument the tar-
iff sub-committee came together on a
proposal to increase China's tariff
schedule under an international com-
mission plan, and the Far Eastern
committee as a whole is expected to
ratify the decision tomorrow.
Work Out Details
Among the naval experts so much
progress was made with technical de-
tails of the naval limitation plan that
in some quarters it was declared final
disposition of the subject was only a
question of hours. Precise regulation
for scrapping ships and details of re-
placement were numbered among the
day's agreements in the naval sub-

Root resolution.
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director of
'University Health service, has intro-
duced the "Schick test" that enables
him to determine whether or not a
person is immune from dyptheria. By
taking the test, not only does the in-
dividual have the satisfaction of know-
ing that he is not subject to diphther-
ia, but he will be issued, if he desires,
a certificate stating that fact. Further-
'more, he will not have to take anti-
toxin -is case he is exposed. He may
travel without fear of contracting
diphtheria into districts where the ma-
lady is present.
The test is made by a simple in-
jection in the skin of a solution
through a capillary. The best mate-
rial has been secured from New York
where a marked success has been
achieved in this work and the Health
service is now prepared to make these
tests. Since the solution employed
rapidly' disintegrates withii a few
hours after preparation, it will be ne-

cessary for those who desire the de-
termination to report from 2 to 6
o'clock any Thursday afternoon.
All those who have been exposed to
diphtheria or who wish to find wheth-
er they are immune should report
I Thursday to Dr. Floyd M. Allen at the
above hours.
One who is found to be subject to
diphtheria can be made immune by
three injections into the skin, one
each week. The individual is thus en-
abled to build up his own immunity.
