Drop Promised
Chicago, Feb. 13.-A blinding snow
storm which today slowed up traffic
and spread a white cover several
inches deep over the city marked the
beginning of what the weather bureau
predicted would be the coldest spell
of the winter.
The mercury tumbled in a drop that
was expected to continue until it
touched 10 or 13 degrees below
Thursday, when the crest of the wave
will be reached. The drop in temn-
perature at Chicago was expected to
be a forerunner of similar conditions
throughout the mid-west.

Dusseldorf, Feb. 13.-Occupation of
the towns of Emmerich and Wesel, set
for today, will give the allies the con-

are located on the right bank of the
Rhine north of this city. Emmerich
has a customs house as well as iron
casting plant and rail shops.
According to German sources yes-
terday's collision between the French
soldiers and German police at Gelsen-
kirchen has aggravated the feeling be-
tween the French and civilian popu-
lation. Reports that French officers
are using their riding whips upon
German functionaries as a means of
enforcing orders, adds fuel to the
fires of discontent.

Five highway experts of national
reputation, one of them a member of
the faculty of the University, spoke at
the morning and afternoon sessions of
the ninth annual conference on high-
way engineerinig held yesterday in thej
Engineering building. Prof. Hershel
C. Smith, assistant professor of high-1
way engineering, was the presiding
officer at the morning session, and L.
H. Neilsen, deputy state commissioner
of highways, presided at the after-I

Gram Speaks
The first speech on the program was
given by C. A. Melick, bridge engineer
of the Michigan state highway de-
partm.ent on "Standard Bridge Prac-
tice of the Michigan State Highway
Department". Prof. Lewis M. Grama
of the civil engineering department,

The prime minister expressed the
belief that there was no danger of
war in the Near East although the
Turk, were probably counting upon
our supposed war weariness. We do!
not want war," he added, "but if it
cannot be avoided it must come."
The usual state ceremonies attend-
# ed the opening of parliament, the de-
bate and the address in reply to the
speech from the throne attracted
much attention. The arrangements for
settlement of the debt to the United
States was welcomed by the king as
reflecting the determination of the
British people to meet their obliga-
The king ,sttressed the Ruhr situa-
ion, declaring that although the Brit-
ish government was unable to con-
cur or participate in the Ruhr opera-
tions, it was acting in such a way as!
not to add to the difficulties of Great.
Britain's allies.

The plan, which contemplates a.
number of other changes ' in the or-
ganization of tne executive Dranch of
the government, is understood to have
been approved by the President in a
conference with Walter F. Brown,
ex-officio chairman of the joint con-

to agree on a program.
The Brown plan is described as
calling for establishment of a new de-
partment of education and public wel-
fare with supervision over all educa-
tional activities of the government
and over all hospitalization activi-
ties, including those of the public
health service, army, navy; and in.-
terior department institutions, and
possibly the veterans bureau.
The forestry service, which, has
been the center of much discussion{
and report, plans for which have led,
to talk of differences within the cab-
inet, is said to be left under the De-
partment of agriculture.
