Reasons for the refusal of adminis-
trative officers to include the name of
J. A. Sallade of the mathem.atics de-
partment of the engineering college
in thelist of the faculty for next fall
were given by Dean Mor imer E. Cool-
ey of the engineering college and Prof
Alexander Ziwet, head of the engi-
neering mathematics department, in
statements Issued by them to The
Daily yesterday. This is the first time
that Professor Ziwet has publicly as-
signed reasons for his ;actAon in the
matter.
The following is the statement is-
sued by Dean Cooley: "Mr. Sallade
was wrong in saying that no reason
was given for the action in his case.
I myself explained to him just why he
was not to be reappointed. It was
because he was not willing to work in
harmony with his colleague on the
mathematics staff. He admitted his
defection.
"Professor Ziwet Loyal"
"In declining to divide his section
as requested Mr. Sallade not only dis-
obeyed the orders of his department
head, but violated a policy of the col-
lege which is to keep all sections in
mathematics and languages as small
as possible in order to secure the
maximum of drill work. He was not
nly distespectful but he was insub-
ordiate., This is not the first instance
but one of several extending back a
yeai or two. PRofessor Ziwet has been
most loyal to Sallade-."
Professor Ziwet made the following
explanation of the case: "I explained
to :M r.Sallade when I informed him
that he would not be reappointed that
the t-eason was that he refused to co-
operate with the mathematics depart-
ment. He requested a written state-
ment of the causes leading. to. the
action taken I told M r. Sallade that
such a statement would not be .to his
advantage, as I would have to enumer-,
ate in detail all the reasons for my
dissatisfaction with his work.
"At a later interview I told him that
I did not in any way wish to stand
in the way of his. finding a position
elsewhere; and that if inquiry were
made of me regarding his work here
I would be glad to emphasize the good
features of his work; namely, his en-
thusiasm as a teacher and his succese
in interesting his students."
Sallade ReplIes
In reply to the statements of Dean
Cooley and Professor Ziwet, Mr. Sal-
lade said the following: "With respect
to Professor Ziwet's statement that
his reason for not appointing me was
my refusal to cooperate with the
mathematics epartment; if my wish-
ing to teach my classes as enrolled,
believeing that I, myself, am the best
judge os to whether or not they are
too lage, is a refusal to cooperate,
then I am guilty. I asked of Profess-
or Ziwet a written statement Satur-
day morning, and he refused me point
blank, and it was not until Tuesday!
morning after the story was published
by The Daily that he told me that if
he gave me a statement it would not
be to my advantage, the statements in
Professor Ziwet's second paragraph
being made also at this time. More-
over, he wished his statement to be
in the nature of a private letter when
requested by another university, an
not a statement given me to be offer-
ed when applying for another position.
"With reference to Dean Cooley's1
statement that I admitted my defect-
tion to him, he is entirely mistaken
as I made no such admission. It is
true that 1 did refuse to divide my
sections as ordered, but Professor
Ziwet himself was unable to make
such a division when he came into
my room and addressed my classes.

Masques To Give ;
Program Tonight1
Masques dramatic society will in-
stitute the first of a series of three
programs at 8 o'clock this evening in
Sarah Caswell Angell hall with a per-
formance of Doris Halman's cornish
fantasy ,"Wil O' The Wisp." This
play was presented last year with
such marked success that the organ-
ization is repeating it in its present
season after numerous requests.
A little waif who has been taken in
from the wild heath by an old corn-
ish woman is the central character of
the play and particularly effective op- 1
portunities have been. invested in the
role. She has no lines to speak but
through her uncanny fascination she
influences and eventually destroysI
her enemies. As the climax of the;
scene rises, she floats about theI
darkened cottage, her face glowing
with a weird iridescence, unti she
leads her lover's wife out onto the
open moor and over the cliffs into
the sea.
The play will be preceeded by an
atmospheric ballet by Hortense Hoad
'24, and Ruth Vermilyea, '26. Thisi
prologue portrays an incident in..the
experience of two tiny elves worked
out in pantominic action accompaniedi
by the Massenet music.1
The production is under the general
direction of Velma Leigh Carter, '24
while the settings have been especially
designed and executed by Professor J,

COL~LElGE FRATERITIES ,
ADVOATEDBY EDUCATOR
Ithaca, N. Y., Feb. 27.-"I thorough-
ly believe in college fraternities" were
the words of Dr. E. P. Graves, New
York State commissioner of educat-
ion in an interview with a represent-
ative of the Cornell Daily Sun recent-
ly. By way of explanation, Dr. Graves
.stated that he had become a convert
because of his realization of how much
good his wife and daughter had de-
rived from their affiliations with sor-
orities'.
,The commissioner also went on .to
state that he, although never having
accepted membership in any frater-
nity thought, that even though unfor-
tunate things sometimes happen in
fraternity circles, nevertheless the
friendships made, the pleasant activi-
ties thus possible, far over-balance
the few unpleasant possibilities. Dr.
Graves concluded the interview with
the statement that if his son should
enter college and not be able to be-
come a fraternity-man, it would be to
his father's disappointment.

Washington, Feb. 27.-(By A. P.)-
Attorney General Daugherty will re-
main for the present a member of
President Coolidge's cabinet but he
will be expected to retire to private
life as soon as the Senate has com-
pleted its inquiry into his administra-
tion of the department of justice.
His determination not to resign
without a hearing on the charges
against him was reaffirmed today in
the face of growing pressure for his
removal. He even refused to promise
that he would vacate his post on
termination of the senate inquiry but
it was apparent in other quarters that
any plan for his retention beyond that
time had been abandoned.
This conclusion which is one of the
difficult problems with which Mr.
Coolidge has had to deal since he en-
tered the White House, followed an
almost continuous succession of con-
ferences in the midst of which the At-
torney-General himself suddenly left
Washington.
It was announced after his depar-
ture that he had been called to Flor-
ida where Mrs. Daugherty is ill, and }
would go by way of Chicago to attend
to public business there.

GENERAL VACINATION,
RDER MAY BE 1ssUED
Possibility of a general vaccination,
order hovers over the campus as the
result of the action of two students in
exposing the whole. student body to
chicken pox, .Dr. F. P. Allen of the
Health service declared yesterday.
"These two men continued.to mingle
with their fellow students while suf-.
fering from chicken pox in the act-
ive stage," explained Dr. Allen. This
gave ample opportunity for a wide
distribution of the chicken pox germ,7
and there is a danger of a chicken
pox epidemic. Thisc is the, worst
possibility that can arise out of the
situation-there is no likelihood of
small pox-but the means recognized
as most effective in combating chick-
en pox epidemic, is that of small pox
vaccination.
If an epidemic broke out, the cityI
health authorities could refuse ad-
mission to classes to any student who
insisted upon remaining unvaccinated,
and who could not show that he had
had a successful vaccination within
the last four years. This would bef
equivalent to a general vaccination
order."
A notice in the Daily -Official Bul-
letin for today calls attention to the
situation and warns all students to
be on their guard against possible con-
traction of chicken pox.

in the near future.

following wire last night to Egbert R
Isbell, '25L, chairman of the local
drive committee:
"The American Relief Adminis-
tration retired from Russia at the
end of general famine conditions.
The students and the intellectuals
have suffered more than the
others in the economic debacle of
that country and continue to suf-
fer. The ultimate rehabilitation
of Russia depends upon them to a
large extent.
"I am much gratified to know
that tke Student Friendship Fund
hsa continued this phase of relief
in Russia and can heartily give
my unqualified support to its con-
tinuance. I hope that it will not
fail from want of funds."
Herbert Hoover.
President Marion L. Burton made
the following statement last night:
"Anyone'interested in European
conditions andtfamiliar with the facts
concerning students ad teachers in
European universities, cannot fail to
be iterested in the student mass meet-
ing to be held in Hill auditorium to-
night. There is ample Assurance that
the funds are used wisely and econ
omically. In fact they are expended
by methods aimed to help students to
help themselves."
Another telegram was received last
night from Mrs. Helen Ogden, of New
York, executive secretary of the Stu-
dent Friendship Fund.
"We are glad to be able to assure
the Michigan students that the entire
sum for the expenses has been sub-
scribed, and that all their money which
in many cases means actual sacrifice,
goes 'en toto' to the foreign students."
