standing in, the Gophers' brilliant
play. the first goal was made threQ
minutes after the opening of play
when Wyatt took a long pass from
Bartlett and carried it through two
Michigan defense men for a tally.
Wyatt was also responsible or the

No books, are to be bought or sold

but a list of' the books which will

information concerning them, with the
names of those who wish to sell them,
will be kept by the committee. This

to find the book which he needs. Thi.1

Under a new system which has been
devised this year ,the names of 32
seniors who are prominent on the
campus have been presented to Max
Schrayer, '23E, managing editor of the
Michiganensian, to be run with eigh
others in the limelight section of
the annual.
The plan, according to Schrayer,. is
to use only the pictures of seniors in-
stead of trying to make the prints of
prominent members of all of th
classes. Another innovation has been
made in the manner of selection. Fj

State Administrative Board Author-
izes $40,000 For Construe-
tion Work
Lansing, Jan. 23-(By A.P.)-Com-
pletion of the physics building at the
University of Michigan at a total cost
of not to exceed $450,000 was author-
ized by the state administrative board
today. Preliminary work of the con-
struction was undertaken by the uni-
versity some time ago and it is esti
mated that more than $200,000 has
been spent to date.
Members of the board after inspect-
ing a report on the expenditures of
the University so far estimated that
the completion of the physics build-
ing will prohibit further building un-*
der the $4,500,000 program authoriz-
ed by the 1921 legislature. Total ex-
penditure exclusive of the physics
building are $2,986,770.
According to Thomas E. Johnson,
state superintendent of public instruc-
tion it will be necessary to spend per-
haps another $500,000 for land and it
Is presumed that it will cost perhaps
an equal amount to complete, the en-I
gineering shops upon which about!
$240,000 has been spent. If the esti-
mates of members of the board are
correct, the university will be unable
to go ahead with the completion of its
literary building unless provision is
made by the 1923 legislature.

European Situation Takes Menacing
Turn Because of Turkish
Lausanne, Jan. 23--(By A.P.).-Un-

uation of the present moment, it sud-
:enly took a more menacing turn this
evening owing to critical develop-
ments in the Near East conferene:
Turkey refused to accept the Brit-
ish proposal to refer the Mosul .dis-
pute to the League of Nations for

to accede to Turkish counter sugges-
tions that the question be settled .by a
plebiscite in the confiscated district.

Lord Curzon then declared that as

ity of addressing a letter to the c$ln-

An important American feature of
tonight's meeting was. a stateent
read by Ambassador Childs, outliM*g
