Friendly, Refuse Any Com-,
promise 1
Paris, Jan. 4.-The alliance between
France, Great Britain, Italy and Bel-
gium fell apart today over the treat-
ment of German reparations. The
Latin powes, France, Italy, and Bel-
gium, remained loosely grouped to-
gether on that subject, while England,
although separating from them, ex-
pects to co-operate, especially with
France and on other questions.
The conference of the premiers
which has been in progress here since
Jan. 2, ended with simply words.
No vote was taken, the French say,
the expressions of various delegates1
making it clear balloting was unnec-
Bonar Law IssuesStatement
A formal statement by Prime Min-1
ister Bonar Law just before the con-
ference broke up said that the Brit-
ish considered that the French pro- 1
posals if put into effect, were likely
to bring disastrous results to Euro-
pean economic life. At the same time,
France was assured the British gov-
ernment, and, it was believed the
British people, retained unchanged
their feeling of friendship for France.
Premier Poincaire, in reply said pro-
longed study of British proposals had
convinced him that they meant over-
throw of the treaty of Versailles as
well as a considerable reduction of
the debt due to France, which could
not accept them. Mr. Poincaire ex-
pressed thanks for the statement of 7
the British and declared the feeling
of France toward Great Britain re-
mained unchangingly cordial.
Exchange of speeches brought thel
conference to a close.
Mussolini Tours France
Premier Mussolini turned the scale
decisively against the British plan.
The Italian delegate had reserved the
final declaration until today and this
morning it appeared that.they were
inclined to support Mr. Bonar Law's
proposal with slight modifications. At
telegram received from Rome just be- t
fore the conference opened, instruct-
ed them to vote for the French plan,
as against the British in case they
should find it useless to push their
own plan.-
Mr. Poincaire is not elated tonightt
over his success; he is described a
in sober mood, displaying great anx-
iety. He will proceed warily and will
report to the French parliament on
its reassembling next Tuesday. In1
the meantime the reparations com-
mittee will meet on Tuesday to pass
on coal deliveries and also upon Ger-
many's request for a moratorium.
The British will make special ef-
forts to continue their work under
the entente in all fields of European
politics accepting Germany's repara-
tions. Mr. Bonar Law's conception1
appears to be that France may try a
free hand with Germany for a few
months, until she becomes convinced
that the plan will not fulfill expecta-
tions, and that then she will turn
again toward England.y g h
Air. Bonar Law deeply regrets the
outcome of the conference. He said,
tonight it was apparent that at the re-
cent London meeting that the breech
dividing the French and British re-,
parations views was too wide to ad-
mit of a compromise but that this did
not prevent him from coming to Paris

in the hope of finding some last min-
iite solution of the problem.
Fear French Guarantees
The British are fearful of the rei
sult that would follow the appljca-
tion of premier Poincaire's guarantees
in the Ruhr and the Rhineland. The
same British officials profess a doubt
that France will actually carry out
its threat of independent action al- {
though the only definite action which
has been suggested is reference of
the whole problem to the League of

"The whole thing is a surprise to
me," says Benedict Crowell of Cleve-

war, commenting on the indictment
of himself along with six other men
by the federal grand jury at Wash-

fraud the golernment in connection
with the construction of army can-

New $2,000,000 Struc-
A new and important unit in the
plans for the future Michigan cam-
pus will be started about the middle
of February when ground 'will be
broken for the new Lawyer's club
and dormitories which will be located
on 'South University avenue at the
corner of State street. The magnifi-
cent building will require 18 months
for completion and it is hoped to
have it ready for occupancy in Sep-
tember 1924.
An expenditure of more than. $2,-
000,000 will probably be involved in
the construction of the building Thor
land which it will occupy has either
been purchased or will be .acquired
through condemnation' suit to be in-
stituted this month. The land is ex-l
pected to cost approximately $500,000.1
Plans Drawn Up
Plans for the new structure have
been drawn by York and Sawyer, New
York architects, and will reach Annj
Arbor by Feb. 1, it is expected. Finalf
details of the work were agreed upon
when President Marion L. Burton vis-
ited the unamed donor of the build,
ing during his recent trip in the
Removal of the Psi Upsilon fra-'
ternity house, the oldest fraternity
house in Ann Arbor and of the Aca-

project, according to Prof. John F.
Shepard, supervisor of the building
Despite the advent of the winter
weather progress on the University
buildings now under constructioq
has not been retarded. All the win-
dows are now in place in the Clem-
ents library and alarge part of the
interior wood paneling has arrived.
The Lorenzo decorators have practic-
ally completed their blue and gold
painting of the entrance.vaulting and
have submitted a 'sample for the cof-
fered work for the main reading and
exhibition room.
New Lit Unit Progresses
The building advancement most to
be noticed is the pouring of the foot-
ings and other concrete work for the
new literary unit. All details for the
foundation work have not been sub-
mitted by the architects, but. it is
anticipated that these plans will be
ready as soon as they are needed.
Floor plans for the remainder of the
structure are partially complete.
Nearly all of the reinforced con-;
crete structural work for the Engin-
eering Shops and Laboratories unit
and for the Model high school haq
been finished. In the former case,
some of the exterior stone work for
the first floor is already in place. The
deep sub-basement of the Physics
building has been finished and it is
expected that the first floor work
wil be poured within ten days. All
work is suffering from difficulty in
getting pipe while other steel work
has to be ordered far in advance in
order to insure delivery for use.

Purchase of Isle Royale Recommended
as Conservative
(Note: The portion o Governor
Groesbeck's message dealing with
the needs of state educational In-
stitutions is printed in full on page
(By Associated Press)
Lansing, Jan. 3.-Generally favor-
able comment was heard in legislative
circles tonight on the message o;
Governor Groesbeck, read before a
joint session in the house chamber
this afternoon. The executive cover-
ed a wide range of subjects, many of
which already have been discussed
and publicly endorsed by numerous
state political leaders.
Continuation of the highway pro-
gram, establishment of the definite
fiscal program and revision of taxa-
tion laws to increase emergency tax- 1
es and nord a measure of relief for!
property holders, were among the
governor's suggestions that appeared
to find..popular favor. .
The governor's reference to the
centrallzed state government was
generally taken to mean that he fav-
ored some extension of the powers of
fhe Administrative board which, he
declared, had operated to the benefit
of the state. No mention was made in
this respect, of the desire for elimina-
tion or consolidation of existing state
department, although such a plan will
probably be advanced during the se-
Institutions Should Be Patient j
State institutions, the governor a-
serted, siould not be neglected, but
he indicated a feeling that they should
be patient with their elaborate build-.
ing progra ,u with tihe necessarily
large appropriations, and give, the
state "a breathing spell".
The uildihg of two new prIsoe,
one to replace Jackson, abandonment
of which he recommends, and another-
institution at Okemos, exclusively for
women, to cost $200,000 was recom-
civil service and an eight hour day

Corrupt Practices act, regulation of
motor truck and bus lines, state con-
trol of 'private bnks, more extensive
supervsion of fire insurance rates
nd bureaus and a sales tax on fish
taken for commercial purposes from
Michigan waters, are other recom-
Laws to prohibit track gambling,
establishment of the state ferry at
Maciinaw and the building of a hos-
pital foi' crippled children were urged.
Recommends Isle Royle Purchase
The governor recommended that
Isle Royale be taken over by the state
as a conservative measure.
The joint session was staged with
the usual formalities. The Supreme
court judges and state officers were
guests of honor.
In regular session, a few bills were
introduced in each house, after which'
adjournment was taken, until 8 o'clock
Monday evening.
There were ne* evidences today
that the present session will cover
much more ground than its predeces-
sors, leaders on both sides indicating
every effort would beadirected towards
obtaining speedy action on all mat-
Bills Ready Soon
The first of next week probably

will see some institutional appropri-
ation bills ready for presentation to
the respective committees. Budget Di-
rector Henry Croll expects that by
mid-week some of them will be
started out, both by. the house and
the senate. Heretofore it has been as
late as February before the Ways and
Means committee chairman has com-
pleted the preliminary recommenda-
Lansing, Mich., Jan. 4.-Resignation
of Attorney-General Merlin Wiley was

will 'be filled by appointment by Gov-
ernor Groesbeck. No intimation ate
to the' possible successor has been
given out.
Governor Groesbeck tonight an-
nounced he would send the name of
Andrew. B. Dougherty to the Senate
for confirmation to succeed Merlin
Wiley as attorney general.

Lansing, Mich., Jan. 4.-Two bills of
major importance were among those
introduced in the house today. They
propose amendments of the corpora-
tion tax law and the corrupt practices
act. The first is designed to provide
for a more equitable distribution of

at onermill per dollar of capitalstock
while the.second would prohibit assist-
ance of voters at-the polls and have
the effect of depriving illiterate per-
sons of suffrage."

es for stationary engineers, give mar-
ried women equal contract rights and
make it a niisdeamnor for any person
to interrupt a religious service or
