Action To Be Taken on Violations of
Traditions by First
fear Men
Names of freshmen violators of
Michigan traditions, presented to the
Student council last night by upper-
classmen on the campus, were refer-
red to the Subcommittee of the Stu-
dent council ,which will take action
on them immediately. The freshmen ,
involved were said to have refused to
live up to their class rules after re-
peated warning. They are the first of-
fenders to be reported to the student
self-governing body this year.
The subcommittee, which will prob-
ably take action this afternoon as to
the punishment of these men, was
created last fall by the council to re-
place the sophomore vigilance con-
mittee which went out of offce at the
time of the council reorganization last
spring. At thistime it was decreed
that physical violence would not be

Student council at the next meeting.;
Hugh K. Duffield, '24, is chairman of!
this committee.
The council approved of a petition
from the seniors of the School of
Music asking that they be allowed to
take part in the Swing Out exercises
in the spring. As a result of' the re-

White House States Attorney-General
Sias Not Been Asked
To Resign
Washington, March 5,-(By AP)-
Hints that another important turn is
impending in the fortunes of Attorney-
General Daugherty were given today
by developments at the White House
and before the special senate com-
mittee appointed to investigate his ad-
ministration of the department of jus-
As a result of the trend of the day's
events there was belief :tonight' in
some well-informed quarters that the
situation actually had reached the
stage where the question of choosing
a successor to Mr. Daugherty was
being given serious consideration.
The White House had no comment
to make beyond the statement that no
demand for the Attorney-General's
resignation had yet been made and
that no one had been selected to take
his place in the cabinet.
Coincident with the renewal of in-
dications that President Coolidge was
against giving attention to the ques-
tion of removing Mr. Daugherty from
office the senate investigating com-
mittee conferred behind closed doors
for nearly three-hours with John W.

charge of the. veterans' bureau ciim-
inal investigation before the Chicago
grand jury.

Musekegon, March 5.-(By A. P.)-1
Senator Hiram W. Johnson, Republi-1
can candidate in the Michigan presi-I
dential primary, demanded "two-fisteds
action against those involved in thet
national oil scandal" in an address
here tonight.
"We need a Roosevelt in the ad-
ministration who will go at this thing
in a two-fisted manner,' he declared.
"The'e is a demand for some one to
whom right is right and wrong is
Iwrong. -
"It is useless to say that the $100,-
000 involved in the leases was a loan.
IWhen the people are making a loan
they do not stuff that amount of
money, in greenbacks, into a satchel
and carry it to New York, and deliver,
it to a public official. It is also use-
less to try and justify the leases. Pub- }
S officials are not being bribed for
worthless properties."
S Thespeaker adhered closely to the!
general platform he outlined in Grand
Rapids when he opened his Michigan
campaign Tuesday night. He assailed
an alleged alliance between crooked
business and crooked politics. The
Teapot Dome scandal, he asserted, has
brought the invisible government out
into the open and removed all doubt
as to its existence.
