Washington, D. C.. Oct. 8.-(By
A.P.)-Expression in British newspa-
pers recently favorable to the ac-
ceptance by Great Britain of thee121
mile limit treaty plan, proposed by
Secretary Hughes to curb liquor
smuggling into the United States has
caught the attention of officials here.
Nhile hope is entertained that delib-
erations. of the British Imperial con-
ference will result in mhe decision to
comply with Secretary Hughs' re-
quest, It was said today that no auth-
oritative indication had been repeived
that such action would be taken.
Additional data Js supporting the
American treaty plans for dealing
with rum smuggling, and the incon-
veniences occasioned British ships.
Great Britain stated that the for-
eign office was not favorably inclined
toward the 12 mile limit and searb
and seizure proposal. The specified
objections made are not considered
as inseparable from the Washington
viewpoint. In the communication to
the foreign office made by Mr. Harvey,
therefore, it is understood that the
American proposition was explained
at greater length.

student council will speak, and there
will also be a faculty speaker.
This is the second time that the
student council has sponsored such a
meeting of the freshman classes. The
first attempt at such a plan was made,
last year with the hope that it would
unite the. whole freshman class, and
encourage a spirit of cooperation with
the council as well as acquaint the
freshmen with each other.
The meeting met with such success
last year, that the council is repeat-
ing the meeting this year. It will pro-
bably be made an annual affair for
all freshman classes.
After the speeches, which will take
probably half an hour, all classes
save the freshman literary class will
be dismissed. This class, under the
direction of a committee of the stu-
dent council, will nominate and elect
their class officers. Class dues will
be collected as an aid to the class
treasurer, all freshmen paying their

BusIness To Be Parily Given Over
To Decide Future
t The first general meeting of the
Press club will be held at 7 o'clock
tonight in University Hall. The ob-
ject of the meeting will be to elect
officers and plan the work of the club
for the corning year. Prof. J. L.
Brumm of the journalism department
will preside at the meeting until of-!
ficers are elected.
A part of the meeting will be devot-
ed to deciding the character of the
club. Last year some objection was
raised because of the fact that the
organization was a luncheon club.I
According to tentative plans lunch-
eons will be held only once or twiceI
during the year, and the rest of the
meetings will be held in the evening.
Regular meetings will be held once
or twice a month.
I All students in journalism are urged
1 to attend this meeting. The club was1
thought to be exceptionally success-
ful last year, and new members are
invited to participate in its activi-
ties this year.
An announcement was made in E. G.j
Burrows' of the journalism depart-
ment classes that the meeting would
be held at the Union, and attention
is called to the change of location.
