'ilam Beal
Is Oldest Grad
Of University
William J..Beal, '59 'A. M., 62 is now
the oldest living graduate of the Uni-
versity, following the death of Dr.
George W. Carter, '53M, who died
Tuesday, according to Harley L.
Sensemann, director of the alumni
catalogue office. Mr. Beal, a relative
of Regent Junius E. Beal, '82, is a
graduate of several universities, hav-
ing a M. S. degree from Chicago, an
Agr. D. from Syracuse and an A. B.
from Harvard. He was professor of
botany at Michigan Agricultural cot-
lege from 1870 to 1910 and has now
retired Professor Emeritus at Elm-
hurst, Mass.
Alfred H. Castle, '59, and John
Parker Stoddard, '59, while grauates
of the same class, are both younger
than Prof. Beal. Mr. Castle is a resi-
dent of Los Angeles and Dr. Stoddard,
who received his M. D. degree at Belle-.
view, has retired and is at present liv-
ing in Lansing. .

In an atmosphere of military pomp
created by decorations which were
permeated with the war spirit of 1918,
hundreds of dancers enjoyed themsel-
ves last night at the Military Ball in
Waterman and Barbour gymnasiums.
The "first strains of music were
heald at the call of reveille shortly
atter 9 o'clock. For a half hour or
so the guests danced when, at the
call of the clarion, they formed for the
grand march, led by Jacob Hostrup,
'2F, and Miss Esther Wiesmer of
Whitmore Lake. Following a short
parade through the gymnasium the
dancers formed in a group before the
camera at oie end of Waterman gym-
nasiun, the picture was taken, and the
guests began dancing once again.
Decorations were altogether of a
military character, being for the most
part of flags and buntings in bright
colors. One of the most attractive
features of the Ball was the dome
effect in the larger gymnasium. The
booths, too, were unique in color and
design and in the opinion of many
surpassed those of any previous mili-
tary dance held here.
Appreciated especially by the dane-
ers was the luncheon. Which was
served in three sections, and was an-
nounced by mess call from the bugle.
The music had its strong and weak
points, but on the whole was truly in
the spirit of the evening and on a
plane with the uniqge decorations of
the ball...Ted Rhodes' orchestra of
Ann Arbor, Ralph Williams' orchest-!
ra and Benson's country club orches-
tra, both of Chcago, were the groups
w1ich furnished the continuous mel-
ody for the party.
From the time of luncheon till the
call of taps at 2:30 o'clock the dancers
thoroughly en oyed the evning,' and
when the 'farewell call ws soundedj
the guests with something of a unan-
unity pas i ther rord fong thatithe'
fotirth annual Military Ball had been'
a real success ard woutlhbe a 1
ant memory.

ters that would accommodate the in-
habitants of a village of 2,000 popu-
lation,the new Detroit and Cleveland

corators now are at work on the craft
which are tie limit for size oi the
Great Lakes of side Wheel steamers.
The Greater Detroit and Greater
Buffalo are being built at an estim-
ated cost of approximately $3,500;000
each. They are 550 feet long and 100
feet wide, and each has 650. cabins
for passengers. The Leviathan, one
of the largest vessels aloat, has only
570 rooms.
The dining rooms are on the mlain
deck at the stern, with large windows,
set closely together, providing an un-
obstructed view. Each steamer also
has a cafeteria.
The new boats, when placed on the
run between Detroit and Buffalo, will
give the company 50 per cent more
carrying capacity on that division.
The City of Detroit III and the City
of Cleveland III then will be trans-
ferred to the Detroit-Cleveland run,

in a span of ,66years he had been a

national advisor to his party.
He began his: politican career ,as a.

Murphy established a club for the fol-

and his acquaintances grew in num-
bers through the medium of this club.
For a time after quitting his job
in the wire works Murphy drove one

and later became the proprietor of a
saloon. He prospered as a saloon

a string of four saloons and later
took his first real fling in politics

Conference Committee Hope to Com--
plete Consideration of Bill Af-
ter Tomorrow
Washington, April 25.-(By A. P.)-
An arrangment with respect to Jap-
anese immigration which will satisfy
those advocating exclusion and which
at the same time will avoid any effront
i to Japan is being attempted by Presi-'
dent Coolidge.,
The president is hopeful that the
Sarrangement can be effected and with
that end in view will continue his con-
ferences on Immigration legislation
with congressional leaders and .Secre-
tary Hughes. Just what sort of an
arrangement the executive has in
mind was not disclosed at the White
White House officials would not go
so far as to say that the president
would veto the immigration bill, now
in conference between the senate and
house, should the proposed arrange-t
ment fail of acceptance, but visitors
have found the president greatly dis-
turbed over the situation resulting<
from adoption by congress of the pro-3
vision for Japanese exclusion.
SChairman Colt, of the seate mmi-
gration committee, who was one of the
six senators who voted against the
immigration bill, conferred with the
president today and laid before the ex-
ecutive his reasons for viewing the;
exclusion provision as unnecessary,
illogical, and generally harmful to I
American interests.
Senator Colt attended the first meet-
'ing of tlge senate and house confere-
es on the measure but it was not dis-
closed whether he carried to the con-
ferees any suggestion from the presi-t
dent. Some supporters of the bill,

Predicts Crisis Caused By Industrial
Readjustment Will Be Withhi
Fifty Years
That .the crisis occasioned by in-
dustrial readjustment will come with-
in the next fifty years was the pre-
diction of Judge Marvin B. Rosenberry
when he delivered the annual address
of the Order of the Coif at 4 o'clock
yesterday afternoon in the Law school.
Judge Rosenberry compared the fam-
ily in the middle West of one hundred
years ago to that of today to indicate
that there has been a decided change
in the fundamental human relations
in that time.
"Diversity of occupation has broken
family solidarity," Problems develop-
ed as a result of increased popula-
tion have changed in fundamental,
character. The "home is now a di-
versing rather than a producing cen-
ter. The members of the new indus-
trial order must have the same pro-'
:tection that was accorded .the: small-
er' economic unit - of 4the family, but
the development. of new 'laws should I
not proceed too rapid-ly.for, the' peo-
pie o 'grasp their..significance.
" here has; been a tendeney. point-
ing toward a freedom' from constitu-
tional restraints, a tendency :which
mi ht caus a return to :the parlia-
SmenGry frm ofr goverment., There
will never be any cause .for revolutlon
if the bar does its duty. The Bar
must defend the Constitution and law-
yers must have a knowledge of the
tendencies of the time in order to ren-
der substantial justice. The lawyers
of today do more thinking in regard to
the facts and take less consideration
of the natural rights theory of the
eighteenth century."
Stratton D. Brooks, '96, iresident
f the University of Missouri, visited
IAnn Arbor 'for a few hours yesterday,
stopping off on his way to Detroit
where he will attend an alumni ga-
thering.1 Mr. Brooks was recently in-
augurated as president at Missouri,
having spent the preceeding 10 years
as president- of Oklahoma university.
Missouri has no Dean of Men, and

Mr. Brooks' visit here was partly as
a representative of his institution to
the conference of deans which has
been in progress here. It was men-
i tioned that Mr. Brooks was also here
' to secure a Dean of Men for Missouri

Roll Not Taken Of Students In Upper
Classes If They Maintain
Certain Averages
"Student self-government at Prince-
ton university based on the honor sys-
tem, is regarded as the most success-
ful thing we have aid has done much
for the good of the University," said
Dean Howard McClenahan of Prince-
ton 'when speaking before the after-
noon session of the sixth annual con-
ference of deans and advisers of men
here yesterday.
He expressed himself of the opinion
that student government is entirely
successful and that as the system is
worked at Princton the' attitude of the
faculty is absolutely sympathetic.
Dean McClenahan was called upon to
speak when the conference turned to
a round table discussion or student
Explains Development
In outlining the means by which
Princeton students have a strong)
voice in their government, he explain-
ed that there have been three import-
ant steps by which such control has
been assumed. "In 1893", he pointed
out, "the honor system was adopted
and since then the conduct of exam-
inations has been in the hands of the
students. This system has insured
honesty. In fact, nothing in Prince-
ton's history has compared with- it. It
has toned up the whole university and
raised the moral spirit of the place."
lie stressed the fact that the senior
council has all matters of disicipline
referred to it and that they in turn
make recommendations to the faculty
committee and if this body disagrees,
the question is left up to the dean.
"I have seldom failed in agreeing
with the students' decisions and in
these exceptional cases have merely
suggested.'that "they reconsider their
actions. We are always abl to come
to a. yonclusion which is satisfactory
to the council,. the faculty, and my-
self", Dean 1cClenahan cptinued.,
lie pointed out that the second step
n the development.of the honor sys-
ten at Princeton originated from the
student body and was the cause of the
establishment of a "committee 'of the
spirit of the' honor system" which acts
in cases of petty dishonesty which
hithertofore were handled by the dean.
Recommend Action
"The third and most recent develop-
ment was the placing of authority in
the senior council of students to rec-
ommend penalties without causes for
actions considered harmful to the Uni-
versity, providing the -decision was
made by four-fifths of the Council and
that the accused man shall have :the
right to appeal to the University dis-
cipline committee", said the Prince-
ton dean. "This also has worked sat-
'In speaking of attendance, he men-
tioied the fact that compulsory at-
tendance had been done away with
there for students in the upper classes
who maintain certain averageS and
that this system has proved success-
ful to some extent.
In discussing Dean McClenahan's
talk, deans from all parts of the coun-
try asked questions of him and his
opinion of the possibilities of adopt-
ing such honor systems in large uni-
versities.. Dean Francis F. Bradshaw
who spoke in favor .of. the system

pointed out that during the war among
14.000 candidates for artillery posi-
tions at Camp Davis there was not a
single example of dishonesty in the
honor examinations.
A question as to whether or not
students will report others under the
honor system was propounded by
Dean G. H. Goodnight of Wisconsin.
Dean McClenahan answered it, say-
ing that "he had never seen any re-
luctance of the part of students to re-
port others, A spirit exists which
{ makes the men feel that it would be
dishonest not to report."
The question whether or not stu-
dent government should extend to cas-
es in discipline, such as drunkeness,
immorality and other conduct was
brought up. The Princeton dean ex-
,pressed the opinion. that the es-
sential thing involved was the prob.
lem of honesty and that this should bE
the first consideration.
Opening the afternoon meeting
Dean G. E. Ripley of Arkansas spokE
on the subject of "Eligibilty requlre-
ments for extra curricular activities'
and following this was a discussion a'
which time the various deans told o'
the requirements in their narticulal
