THE MICHIGAN DAILY TUESDAY, F
(Continued from Page One)
"Of course," Professor Reed contin-
ued, "in the beginning there were four
alternatives before Secretary Denby.
In handling the Teapot Dome basin, a
naval oil reserve, wich capable geol-
ogists claimed was being consumed by
private enterprises, Secretary Denby
might have done one of four things,
either (1) restricted the drilling for
oil in this basin by private enter-
prises, (2) allowed private companies
to drill for oil and then store in
tanks for governmental use, (3) have
the government 'step in' and take over
the drilling and storing of the prod-
nets, or (4) lease to private companies.
"In taking the last step, I believe
that he made a serious mistake In
granting leases to the oil companies
on the terms so favorable that it ap-
peared as though they were unjustly
enriching ttemselves at the expense
of the people.
"Daugiterty Will Resign
When asked concerning his opinion
on whether or not he thought Secre-
tary Daugherty would resign, Profes-
sor Reed said, "It seems to me that, in,
the long run, Daugherty will be forced
In speaking of William G. McAdoo's
connection with the scandal, Profes-
sor Reed expressed himself as believ-
ing that IltAdoo's chances for the
Democratic nomination would, no
doubt,. be hur't, but certainly not ru-
Ined. In regard to the legality of Mc-
Adoo's acceptng the $150,000 as coun-
sel for the oil company, Professor
Reed held to be entirely ethical.
Hobbs Vindicates Denby
"I feel sure that Secretary Denby
has resigned in order to relieve the
President of embarrassment," said
Prof. William H. Hobbs of the geology
department. "It should not be inter-
preted as confession of any wroig-
doing on his part. The most partisan
Democrat has never claimed that there
was any fraud connected with Denby's
action on oil leases, and no one know-
ing his record would suspect him with-
out the strongest of proofs.
"The public is not generally aware
of the pressure to cut out the duplica-
tion of activities in the governmental!
departments, and to concentrate leas-
ing of land, for example, within the
one department with adequate ma-
chinery for the purpose-the Interior.
"Senate Action an Outrage"
"The action of the Senate in the
'ouster' resolution was an outrage and
a price of political impertinence which
the President properly rebuked. The!
story that those naval officers that
were opposed to the transfer were
spirited away has already been shown
to be pure 'moonshine.'
"As regards the California basis!
there is little doubt that to take mea-
sures for securing the oil before it
should all be drained away was em-
inently wise. The large reservoi-rs of
oil stored at Pearl Harbor, as a con-
sequence, are all that give to that great
fortress its value as base for a fleet
in time of war.
"The Teapot Dome was a different
proposition so long as could still be
