IIT r IA-To Bonar Law,_Says Wenley Y MMIFFS IN


Refusai of Senate to Pursue Trhia of
Communists is Taken as
Hostile Act
Paris, May 24-(By A.P.)-Pre-
mier Raymond Poincare and his col-
leagues in the cabinet today submit-
ted their resignations to President
Millerand but the president decided'
not to accept them.
The action of the minister was the
outcome of the refusal of the ,Senate
to proceed with the trial of Marcel
Cachain and other communistst charg-
ed with illegal acts against thi French
government. -
Formerly French President
M. Poincare was president of the
French republic fol' eight years, from
1913 to 1921. He was made head of
the ministry on January 15, 1922 and
has held that position until his resig-

Three Students Put on Proation for
Year; Two Banred from
Penalties ranging from expulsion
from the University to suspension of
degrees were inflicted upon students
convicted of "being under the influ-
enet of liquor" on Swing-out day and
others who were implicated in a gam-;
blng party recently reported to the
discipline committee.
o the group convicted in the Swing-
out disturbances, two were suspend-
ed from ie University until the be-
ginning of the second semester next
year. The suspension sentence takes?
effect immediately. Three others were
placed on probation for one year and
two are forbidden to take part in
Commencement exercises and will
not receive their diplomas until the
first meeting of the Board of Reg-
ents in the fall.
In the gambling cases one student
was expelled and another placed on
probation for one year. In the case
of the former, accordingato the com-
nilttee the extreme penalty was im-
I posed because the student was at the
time he was apprehended, on proba-
tion for a similar offense committed
last year.
The gambling cases were reported
to the committee Thursday afternoon
and action was taken after definite ev-
idence and testimony had been pre-
Cases against two men who had been
summoned in connection with the
Swing-out affair were voted dropped
by unanimous action.
The committee will reconvene to-

Engineer Tackles
.Flag Pole Climb
Before the curious eyes of a large
crowd, Harry L. Wilcox, '24E, made
for the second time, the perilous jour-
ney to the top of the campus flag
pole. Seated upon a wooden saddle,
which was fastened to the flag rope,
he was pulled to the top of the pole
by three men, carrying the 15-inch
copper ball, covered by gold leaf,
tied over his shoulder. It was found,
however, when he rea~ched the top,
that the threats in the socket into
which the shank of the ball must be
screwed, were worn, and Wilcox had
to hammer the socket until it took
the proper shape.
In doing this, the climber stood on
one foot on the swaying saddle, ham-
mering above his head. The globe
once in place, Wilcox came down for
the paint and brushes with which
he was to paint the big stick. Mak-
ing the journey up, he took with him
a camera, with which he took four
pictures, -facing different directions.
Wilcox said that he could easily see
Ypsilanti from the top nF the pole.
The danger of the task was in.-
creased by the fact that the top of
the pole is but five inches in diame-
ter and is 145 feet high, and that it
s no longer new, Wilcox's first
journey up the pole came when he
went up after the freshman flag last i
fall. -,

sao-Chwant, China, May 24---(By A.
.)-Gun fire heard near here today was
aken to . indlcate that government
roops were engaging the bandits or
iat the bandits were fighting among
hemselves as a result of a confer-
nce which was expected to take
lace today.
The foreigners, including several
&mericans, who were kidnapped by
the bandits when the Shanghai-Peking
xpress was held up recently, are
till prisoners in the Shantung wilds,
ccording to latest reports.
Upon threats of death to all pris-
oners unless that demanded ransom is
paid the government of China has
promised to pay. United States Min-
ster Schurnian at Peking has theat-
ned "drastic action" unless the Amer-
cans are set free.
It was learned today from different
ources that the government soldiers
at Taotzuku have been moved two
miles farther back into the hills. This
retirement seems to indicate that the
roops are acting under orders of
Tsao Kun, inspector general of Shan-
ung who has been told by the tu-
chun of the province to "get the ban-
dits out".'

An attempt will be made during
the coming year by the Interfrater-
nity Coutipil to bring about a closerl
and more permanent feeling of co-
operation among the many fraternities'
on the campus.
As soon as possible next year a
meeting of all the freshman pledges
of every fraternity on. the campus
will be held. This meeting will give3
the men a chance to get acquainted
as fraternity men at the very begin-
ning of their life at the University.
It is hoped that this meeting will
foster a better spirit among the fra-
ternity men on the campus. The mem-
bers of the council also believe that,
through this feeling of co-operation,
the -housing and entertainment of a
large number of vitors. such as

end, will be greatly simplified.

afternoon when a game that was ex-
