Proposed Establlshment of Quarterly
Magazine For 1925 Publication
Action was taken at the meeting of
the Board of Directors of the Alumni
association here yesterday to aid in
the raising of funds for the comple-
tion of the Union pool and a resol-
ution expressing the confidence of the
alumni of the University in Edwin L.
Denby, '96L, former secretary of the
navy, was adopted.
President Marion L. Burton, Coach
Fielding H. Yost and John A. Bacon,f
'24, outlined plans and needs for the
pool at the luncheon of the directors,
following a, morning meeting. The
board approved the plan as a whole
but left the matter up to the directors
of the individual districts to see what
can be done in the various divisions to-'
wards helping without undertaking a
general campaign of all alumni.

The Week's News


Attorney-General Daugherty final-
ly resigned. le had been going to do
so within twenty-four hours for many
weeks. President Coolidge, in asking
for his resignation, said that private
affairs did not permit Daugherty to
devote the proper attention to the ad-
ministration of his office. The real
reason, of course, was that the re-
publican party had everything to lose
and nothing to gain by keeping him.

Washington, March 29.- By -.
Another public session of the senate
Daugherty investigating committee
was held today, but an executive ses-
sion of its members was called for
Monday to consider the question of
the inquiries durion and direction.
The sentimentof ommittee members
as developed since yesterday's resign-
ation of the attorney general was that
a way had been opened for curtailing,
if not concluding, the flow of charg-
es which'has run through the proceed-
A general charge that "the depart-
ment of justice is functioning as an
aid to crooks" was made to Mr. Dau-
gherty by H. F. Scaife, a former spec.
ial investigator in the government
employ, and a hint of another $100,-
000 whiskey "deal" were the high
spots in today's public hearing.
The question of access to the depart-
ment's files, was settled for the pres-
ent by the committee's decision to
grant the request of acting-attorney-
general Beck that sthe matter be left
open until a new head of the depart-
ment takes office.
Scaife's story, which had wide ram-
ification, indicated that he had been
"blocked" in attempting to bring about
prosecutions for alleged airplane
frauds. Going to Thomas B. Felder,
a friend of Mr. Daugherty's with his
story, he said, an interview with the
former attorney general was arrang-
ed at which he presented charges as
to non-prosecution of frauds against
the government.
The matter was dropped he added,
although Felder wrote him a letter
tendering him "a retainer in the Bosch
Magneto case". This case he asserted
involved a concern "seizedby the alien
property custodian -during the war
and sold for a grossly inadequate
sum to Martin Kern, identified 'sea
friend of A Mitchell Palmer, then alien
property custodian.!

Before Final Sesslon of
Convening togehter yesterday after-
noon, the three research societies
which met here Thursday, Friday, and
Saturday completed the final session
of their programs. During the morn-
ing, the American Anthropological so-
ciety, combined with the Michigan
Archeological society, and the Ameri-
can Oriental society held discussions
and business meetings.
At their meeting in the forenoon,
the Anthropological society heard Dr.
W. B. Hinsdale of the University
speak on "A Piece of Float Copper
from Houghton Co., Michigan." Dr.
J. Alden Mason, of the Field Museum
in Chicago, gave the results of some
archeological explorations in the re-
gion of Santa Marta, Colombia. Col.
T. C. Hodson, of Cambridge Univer-
sity, England, visiting lecturer in the
University, discussed language prob-
lems in India.
The Oriental society at its morning
session heard several prominent
speak- on subjects dealing with the
East and its history. After a lunch-
eon given for the societies by the
University, the final session of the con-
ences was held.
Officers for the coming year were
elected in both the Anthropoligical
and Oriental societies. Prof Kemper
Fullerton of Oberlin Theological Sem-
inary was elected president of the
Orientalists; Prof. Campbell Bonner
of the Greek department of the Uni-
versity, vice-president. Prof. G. T. Al-

Invitations were extented this year
to more than 800 of the leading jour-
nalists in this vincinity including
approximately 90 students who are
active in campus activities. Special
invitations were extended in person
by representatives of the fraternity
to several national figures, including
all of the foreign consuls in Detroit.
,Edwin L. Denby, '96L, former secre-
tary of the navy, was invited in this
manner recently during his visit to
that city, and promised to be present
at the gathering, although not in the
capacity of a speaker.

Astronomer Applies Mathematical
Methods to Problem of
N Bodies
Applying the methods of mathema-
tical statistics to the problem of N
bodies, Prof. C. V. L. Charlier, direc-
tor of the astronomical observatory
of Lund University, Sweden, gave his
second and final lecture upon "Statis-
tics and Natural Philosophy" yes-
terday afternoon in the west lecture
room of the Physics building.
Professor Charlier took up the sub-
ject where he left it Friday afternoon,
when he discussed historically the
work of Newton, LaPlace, and Poin-
care, which led to the conclusion that
the problem of N bodies .an be solved
by the classical methods of celestial
mechanics as.developed by these men.
This is due to two facts, according
to Professor Charlier. In the first
place it is impossible to.carry out cal-
culations concerning'. so many ele-
ments treated as so many individuals,.
and in the second the mathematical:
formulae themselves show that infin-
itesimal changes in the initial posi-.
tions of the elements leads to infinite
changes in the final status.
These reasons led Prof. Charlier to
the study of mass movements. With-
out going into the mathematics in-
volved, he showed by two quite dif-
ferent illustrations how the methods
of mathematical statistics had led to
definite laws.
Professor Charlier left last night
j for Chicago, where he will visit Yerkes
observatory. From there he will go
to Berkeley, Calif., where he will de-
liver several lectures on mathemati-
cal statistics and astronomy. He will
remain at the University of Califor-
na as a member of the faculty until
