Complete Investigation of
National Debt
London, Feb. 12.-(By AP)-In aj
calm atmosphere, though not devoid
of excitment and in circumstances
which a few months ago would haveE
been regarded. as impossible, the new
Labor Prime Minister J. Ramsey Mac-
Donald, today, announced the policy
of his government tosa crowded and
interested house. H1's speech was
characterized as able and well reason-
ed and he received compliments from
Stanley Baldwin and H. A. Asquith,I
leadersdrespectively of the Conserva-
tive and Liberal parties.
Seeks American Influence
The Premier intimated that he had
no intention of driving against parli-
amentary tradition and warned the
Hlouse that his government, equally
has no intentions of being driven
from office by marked party attack
and that he would claim the privileges
as a head of a majority government.
The Prime Minister's speech dealt
very eloquently with social problems!
and foreign affairs but he was ex-1
tremely optomistic concerning the!
better atmosphere already created in
France and hopeful that America
would be induced by the new spirit
invoked by his government to lendi
her invaluable aid eventually to the
promotion of the work of peace, as-
sociated with the League of Nations.
Investigate National Debt
One of the most interesting pass-
ages of Mr. MacDonald's speech was
devoted to national fnance. No allus-
iou was made to a capital levy
which it would be quite hopeless for,
a minority government to suggest,
apart from the fact that it was clear-'
ly .rejected by the country in the re-
cent elections. Mr. MacDonald was
strong for a complete investigation
into the whole subject of the national
debt in order to find out how heavily

Priiate DonatIons Suffielent to Fin-
anee Undertaking for Two
Years '
Seven scholars each a distinguished
authority in his field, have been named
by Prof. Francis W. Kelsey, of the
iLatin department to comprise the staff
of the University Near East expedi-
tion. Professor Kelsey, who was nam-
ed by the University as director of the
expedition, states that with the ac-
ceptance of these men of the invita-
tions tendered them, the complete suc-
cess of the undertaking is assured.
Prof. A. E. R. Boak, of the Univer-
sity history department, is the mem-
ber of the party who has madle a spe-;
cial study of papyri. Prof. David M.
Robinson, of Johns Hopkins univer-
sity and Prof. Thomas Callander, of:
Queens university; Kingston, Ontario .
are well known for their long study
and knowledge of inscriptions, and
Prof. H. G. Evelyn White, of Leeds}
university, England, is a specialist inĀ°
Coptic, an Hamitic language which1
was in use at one time in the landsj
through which the expedition expects
to travel. Mr. George R. Swain whoI
is to be the official photographer, is
extensively known for his ability and
skill with the camera. Enoch E. Pet-'
erson and O. W. Qua lley, both students
in the classics at this University, and
candidates for the doctor's degree, are
also included in the expedition.'
To Photograph Records
The main object of the expedition;
according to Professor Kelsey, is "to!
photograph and by photography to
preserve the written records which
are now in danger of being destroyed."
For this purpose, Mr. Swain has equip-'
ped himself with four cameras of var-
ious sizes, although no moving pic-
tures are to be taken. "In my opin-
ion," said Mr. Swain, "the value of the
moving picture for purposes of ser-
ious study is not to be compared with
the still slide. With the latter it is
possible to make a minute and pro-
longed study of any particular scene:
or thing, while with the moving films
such careful and painstaking work'
cannot be accomplished."
Two motor cars have been present-
ed to the expedition, Mr. and Mrs.
Howard Bloomer, of Detroit, giving a
Dodge sedan, which is equipped to
withstand the unimproved roads of As-
ia Minor. The second motor car is a
Graham truck, given to the expedition
by Messrs. Robert, Joseph, and Roy'
Graham, comprising the firm of Gra-
ham brothers, makers of the truck.

"It is obviously futile to expect st

following resolution:
