Duesselorf, Feb. 5-(By A. P.) -
Rapid strides towards realization of
French aims in the Rulr are being
made daily, according to announce-
ment from the occupational headquar-
ters, which point out that from eight
to nine trains of coal and coke, -or
about 5,000 tons, are leaving the oc-
cupied area every 24 hours for Bel-
gium and France.
These trains are manned entirely
by French civilian railway workers
imported for the purpose. In addi-
tion there are some 12,004 railmen
now famiiarizing themselves with the
operation of the German lines.
The French maintain that the trans-
portation shows improvement, coal
and coke being sent out regularly in
barges, by way of Strasbourg. Twenty-
five steamships in all have been re-
quisitioned and manned by French
and Belgium sailors. The river fleet
includes hundreds of barges, many of
which are already loaded with fuel.
The French pin great hope upon
this movement of fuel by water, but
admit that the 'system is not yet
working as smoothly as it should with-
in a short time.

important artery for the transporta-
tion of fuel from the Ruhr, has een

company of French inifantry with
n1achino guns occupied the Essen city
hall today, simultaneously with the
declaration of the 24 hour general
strike against the recent' arrests. The
electric plants continue to function. t
Trouble is again brewing at Gel-
senkirchen, where feeling is running
high against the occupying forces.
A French officer was accosted in the
street and beaten by a mob. The
French made several arrests. Many
officals continue to ignore the orders
of the French, and one of them, the
Burgomaster o Blankepstein, has
been sentenced to imprisonment.
E. Mortimer Shuter, who recently
returned from a short visit to the
University of Wisconsin, will returr l
the latter part of next week to Madi-
son. He will remain in that city, di-
recting the Wisconsin annual opera
for five or six weeks.
Mr. Shuter started rehearsals on the I
Widconsin opera' during his recent
trip. This production will make r4
tour of ten days during the Spring;
vacation. It will visit cities in Wiscon
sin, including Milwaukee, and will alj
so play in Chicago. After completing
this work, Mr. Shuter will return here
to start rehearsals for the 1924 Un
ion opera

Administrative Board InvestIgates
Student Records to Compile
Dismissal List
Along with the grades, notices of
warning and probation are being sent
to those students whose work for the
past semester has proven unsatisfac-
tory. The exact number of warn-
ings and probations placed on stu-
dents this semester was not available
last night. However, according to
Register Arthur G. Hall, the number
approximates 300 of each, varying
little year by year in proportion to
the number of students.
In speaking of the number of de-
linquients, Dr. Hall -said that more
warnings and probations have been
lifted this semester than ever be-
fore. The administrative board of the
literary college is now culling the
list of students whose work has been
so unsatisfactory as to cause their
dismissal from the University. "Out
of this number", he said, "there will
be a few who can present perftctlyt

been of a satisfactory calibre, These

Puppets Prove
Offering what might be termed a
rther pleasing entertainment, Ra-
chel Sewall and her Marionettes en-
'acted eight short playlets of many
different types last night in Mimes
The first part of the program, how-
eer, was dull. In order to picture
these small creatures as the real act-
ors an almost impossible stretch of
the imagination was necessary. Miss
Sewall's interpretation of the charac-
ters was good but she seemed to lack
the abiity to make her actors reallyl
speak. The second part of the eve-4
nings performance, though, was much
better and during the last few scenes
these life-like little creatures of the
miniature stage hopped around and
seemed to be almost alive. The Ital-
ian opera selection from La Traviata
was especially good. Even the lips of
these string-manipulated figures moy-
ed and one had only to imagine him-
self a witness of the actual opera.
The circus scene which concluded the
program was by far the best offer-
. In comparing Rachel Sewall's Mar-
ionettes with those of Tony Sarg
which appeared here last year, it
might be said that Miss Sewall's were
less entertaining perhaps because of
the fact that her characters lacked
reality and differed so slightly one
from the other. Miss Sewalls inter-
pretation of the various characters
was monotonous. It was difficult to
distinguish which actor was speaking.
A similar performance was also
given yesterday afternoon in the
Mimes theater. T. E. F.

the committee is expected to take up
the proposal and at least use them
as a basis for further study.
Outstanding among the recommen-
dations is the proposal to consolidate
the War and Navy departments into a
department of national defense and
to establish a department of educaton
ahnd welfare. Others include:
The transfer of all non-military
functions of the war and navy depart-
