That Chimes Is steadily improving
is a fact borne out in the March
issue which was presented to the
campus yesterday. Editorials, subject
matter, quality of writing, and art
work all show a noticeable increase
in worth. In fact, it is not exager-
ation to say that Chimes has produc-
ed its best effort ofithe year. I
Two student vices, are introduced
for the consideration of the campus,
these two being' the liquor problem
and the student's preference for pipe
courses. Of course, the Junior Girl's
play and the new school of business
administration, being timely, call forl
discussion, as is the case with the
seasonal sport of track.
Jack Conrad,, '26, deals with ,the!
problem of liquor as is on the campus,
and sets forth information regarding
both the situation and supply. The+
article is timely, but infers a crisis
which is doubtfully imminent. The+
editorial comment on this subject is,
well worth reading.

Two articles is sequence organize
a debate about the Junior Girls' play
regarding its professionalism compar-
ed with the Union opera, and carry
it out as viewed from masculine and
feminine viewpoint. One deplores, the
other minimizes, its tendency toward
professionalism.
Rober W. Babson thinks a little
about the new administration school.
His views are mature° and practical,
and valuable to those who are inter-
ested in the new school and its doings.
The glee club is discussed pro and
con, likewise the coming track .season
by Egbert Isbell, '26L, one of Michi-
gan's former stars, who gives Steve
Farrell due praise in the course of
his article.
The improvement in art work is de-
cided. Chimes is breaking away from
what has become accepted as typically
college, a praiseworthy step. All in
all the magazine is well worth read-
ing. G.W.D.

Washington, March 18.(By AP)-

On Teapot Dome
Washington, March 18.-(By A.P.)-
Attorney General Daugherty and Al-
bert Fall figured separately in two new
chapters written today into the rec-
ords of the oil committee as the sen-
ate investigators renewed their long
public quest for all of the facts con-
nected with the leasing of the naval
oil reserves.
O story was that on the .day of the
Sinclair lease of Teapot Dome, it was
officially announced that Mr. Daugh-
erty changed his margin account in
Sinclair oil stock at a Washington
brokerage house from his own name,
to that of W. W. Staid, a member of
the firm, who was then carrying a
large account for Jesse W. Smith, per-
sonal friend and confident of the at-
torney general.
The other chapter had to do with
still another attempt by Fall to conceal j
through the statement of an old friend
that he obtained $100,000 from Edward
L. Doheny, late in 1921 when he en-
larged and improved his New Mexico
ranch holdings.
Both the stock transactions and the=
story of Price McKinney, of Cleve-
land, that Fall sought to have him
agree to say that he had loaned the
former secretary of the interior mon-f
cy which will be followed up by the
committee.
Members regard McKinney's state-j
ment today as one of the most import-
ant that has been developed in con-
nection with the oil leases.

Fargo, March 18.-(By A. P.)--
President Coolidge took the lead in f
the contest for the Republican presi-
dential endorsement in first scatter-
ing returns from today's primary in!
North Dakota. Both city and rural
districts reporting showed an advan-
tage for the president although rural
returns are very meager as yet. Re-
ports from over the state indicate a
light vote.
Both the Johnson and Coolidge
headquarters were expressing confi-
dence in the outcome with Coolidge
backers of the opinion that the cam-!
paign to take in La Follette name
would cut into the Johnson strength.'
Forty precinct's scattered through
out eleven of the. states 53 counties
showed Coolidge nmaintaining his 2-1
lead aver Johnson the conut stand-
ing Coolidge 3,507; Johnson 1,564;
La Follette 465.
These returns were principally
from the larger cities wvhere Johnson
supporters had conceded Coolidge'st
superior strength contending that it
is in the smaller cities and rural pre-
cincts that his power lies.

Washington, March 18.-(By A. P.)
-Selection of Curtis D. Wilbur, chiefj

than ten -minutes. There was said to
have been no debate on the nomina-
tion and no recall asked when the
motion that he be confirmed was
by Senator Lodge of Massachusetts
the Repubican leader.
President Coolidge, upon being in-
formed of the senate action immed-
iately notified Judge Wilbur. and it isI
understood requested the new menm-
ber of the cabinet to come to Wash-A

wildering maze of charges and suspi-
cions the senate committee investi-
gating Attorney General Daugherty
today heard testimony of deals in
liquor, lotteries, and motion picture
films, subpoened two cabinet officers
to appear before it; and was again
rebuked by Mr. Daugherty for the
character of the evidence it had ad-
mitted to its official record.
Call Cabinet Officials
The principal witness of the day
'William A. Orr of New York., in, part
confirmed an in part denied the story
of previous witnesses about an ar-
rangement to exhibit the prize fight
pictures without prosecution. He
then contributed another thriller to
the committee's long list of sensa-
tional episodes by admitting that he
had paid at least $6,000, collected from
various drug companies, to Howard
Mannington, a friend of the attorney
general for the purpose of keepingI
certain "liquor cases out of ourt."°
The two cabinet officers summoned
to. testify were Mellon 'and Weeks.
They will be asked about various
statements made in previous testi-
monies but their testimony is expect-
ed to deal largely with liquor per-
mits, handled through the treasury
and with the Standard Aircraft case
in connection with which Gaston B.
Means has testified that he received
$100,000 from Jesse Smith. Along
with the two members of the cabinet
the comittee 'subpoened several other
'officials and former officials of high,
rank.

Mr. Daugherty's attack on his ac-
cusers tonight took the' form of a long
statement in which he reviewed the
activities of his department and de-
Glared that nothing had been shown

ANN ARBOR SCHOOL HEAD
ACCEPTS NEW POSITION

DAY, PARKER WILL: SPEAK
AT "C"" SMOKER TONIGHT,

L. A. Butler, for five years superin-
tendent of Ann Arbor public schools,
has accepted a similar position in the
Grand Rapids schools. The offer of
the Grand Rapids board provides for
a three year contract with a salary of
$8,000 the first year, $9,000 the second,
and $10,000 for the third. At a spec-
ial meeting of the Ann Arbor board of
education yesterday, Mr. Butler was
released from his contract which oth-
erwise would not have expired for
another year in order to permit him to
assume his new duties next fall. .
At the past summer session of the'
University, Mr. Butler was enrolledI
as a member of the faculty of thlej
School of Education. Prof. Henry E.
Riggs, of the local board of education
stated that "Mr. Butler h'as been in a
leader in securing building and- equip-
ment equal to any dther community.
He has organized a teaching staff of'
the finest quality. He has brought
into the schools a spirit of service.-
We congratulate him on his advance-
ment and wish him success in his new-
field."
California Dean Defends Finals I
Berkeley, March 18.-Final examin-
ations are necessary, in the opinion
of the dean of men here. He says, "I
do not believe examinations should be
abolished in academic courses any
more than they should be abolished
for an athletic team." The dean, how-
ever, thinks that finals should not
alone determine the students' marks.
