Germany's ability to pay was the most
practical solution of the problem he

The most important point of the pro-

He declared Persident Coolidge's as-
sertion in Washington today that it
was up to any foreign nation inter-

interest to the United States was in
effect a reoffering of the proposal.
Mr. Hughes' proposal was made up-
an the eve of the premier's conference
on the reparations question and was
j "obviously made" with the conference
in mind.
"I was in Spain," he continued, "and
saw a brief press dispatch enumerat-

Menaced by a forest fire, Ontonagon
Michigan, on the scuth shore o ,
Lake Superior, 150 miles from her-,
is threatened with destruction, ac-
cording to a telephone message to the
Associated Press from C. D. Riley,
editor of the Ontonagon ierald-C:ur-
ier. Ontonagon, a lumbering center
of 1,500 population, was destroyed by
a forest fire in 1896.
Fire Within ScenM ile
The town fire department, after
sprinkling the outer buildings with
water, have taken up posts in the
outskirts. Townsmen are reinforcing
the firemen. According to Mr. Riley.
the edge of a forest fire which has
covered about 60 square miles, is
within seven miles of Ontonagon. No
loss of life has yet been reported.
The families of villagers and farm-
ers are being housed in the Green
Village school while the men fight the
fire. The school house is in a clear-
ing and according to a telephone mes-
sage from the superintendent of
schools, is considered a reasonably,
safe place.
Mr. Riley believes several logging
camps have been destroyed as the
fire is raging in a thickly wooded
forest. The loss of timber will btu
As there has been no rain in that
vicinity for several weeks, the woods
are dry and it is feared there is little
prospect of control of the flames until
rain falls.
Fatality Occurs
Calumet, Mich., Oct. 9.- The firstj
fatality as a result of the forest firesI
which are virtually unabated in the
Michigan copper country today occur-
red when Mildred Koidu, age 3, wand-
ered with other children from a -farm
house near here to a small thicket a
thousand feet away and was burned
to death.

Stating that the United States had
h.lme finest system of military pre-
>aredness in the world, Colonel Manus
M cCl oskey, brigadier general in active
service during the war, delivered his
irst address in Ann Arbor at the engi-
1eer ig smoker held last night in the
Col. McClokey, speaking on, "Our
\lilitary Policy" before a crowded as-
,embly hall, eutlined the policy that
he United States will follow in rela-
ion to foreign nations, and recounted
vividly'a number of his experiences
'luring active service.
1ean Cooley Speaks
Lean Mortimer Cooley, who intro-
duced the sneaker, spoke on the hist-
ory of the Federation of Engineers.
As president of this organization
which has a membership of about 50,-
)00, he discussed the policy of the so-
:iety and its benefits to the world. He
further mentioned that it was the
Federation of Engineers who had the
most to do in bringing about the eight-
hour day in the steel industry.
"The United States," said Col. Mc-
Closkey, "is keeping prepared by hav-
ng different units of training, such as
the R. 0. T. C. and the National
Guards. With this system a defense
('can be thrown up immediately and
shortly afterwards the army will be
strong enough to take an aggressive
offense. This is the first system of
preparedness that has been put
through in the United States that has
met with success."
Does Not Desire War
The colonel went on to say that the
people may have a wrong impression
about army officers. "Army officers do
not find pleasure in fighting. The sol-
dier is a citizen who has taken the
army for his profession. He is not
merely after battle. I have been at
Cuba, where I have seen my friends
sick with horrible fever. I have been
at the Philippines and at Peking.I
have seen school-mates and soldier
friends subject to all kinds of filth
and malady, living in the dirt, taking
a bath whenever possible and when
bombs were flying overhead spelling
fdeath. Do you think any thinking in-
dividual would desire to see and live
"We have amongst us men," he con-
tinued, "who are known as' pacifists.
We must be careful when we read
about them. Pacifists say discharge
all your army and navy and let us
have peace. You might just as well
abandon the fire department. There is
I another group working hand in hand
' with the pacifists and these are the
anarchists and radicals." Col. Mc-
Closkey proceeded to show up the
evils of this group.
Now With Signal Corps
At persent Col. McCloskey is con-
nected with the general staff on duty
as assistant chief of staff of the sixth
signal corps. He received his training
in the military -academy from which
he graduaced in 1898. He is also a
graduate of the General Staff college,
the Army Staff college, the War col-
a lege, and an honorary graduate of the
army school of the line.
Immediately following the talk en-
tertainment was furnished consisting

Hall Endorses Proposal To
Raise Fraternity Standard

Dr. Arthur G. Hall, registrar of the I
University expressed himself yester-
day as heartily approving, with some
reservations, the general plan which
representatives of, fraternities, meet-
ing with Dean J. A. Bursley, devised
recently to raise the scholastic stand--
ard of such organizations in the Uni-
versity. He declared however that,
some of the provisions would need
slight alteration if the plan is to
fulfill its= purpose.,
"Such a move by members of repre-
sentative fraternal organizations is to
be commended," he said. "They are
taking a step that will surely react
to their advantage. Penalties for

lowering group scholarship have
been needed for some time. It is an
offense which should be taken seri-
"One provision, however, seems to
defeat the purpose of this commend-
able step. A premium is placed on
group probation with no emphasis of
individual probation. If the plan is
to function, as it should, with a re-
sultant raising of scholarship of the
group, entrance requirements must be
raised above the present standard.
The adoption of new provision with-
out elevation of initiation require-
ments would simply result in an in-
creased number of fraternities being
placed on probation.
Dr. Hall emphasized that this is es-
sentially a problem with which the
fraternities themselves must grapple.
It will be to their advantage to
change their requirements for initia-
tion since it is only in this way that
their scholastic standard can be rais-
ed. No amount of placing fraternities
on probation will accomplish this ob-
ject, in his opinion.
"The registrar's office will be more;
than willing to co-operate in carrying
out the plan, even though the issuing
of cards with standing of pledges will
entail considerable additional work

Moore Haven, Fla., Oct. 9.-(By A.
P.)-A frantic effort was being made
tonight to rebuild the dykes surround-
ing this city and save the town from
utter disaster. The gale which swept
across a lake on which the city faces,
was dying down at dusk but the water
still was rising in the city. Waters
ifrom Lake Okeechobee still were
I washing high and farmers were at-'
tempting to reach the city with their
stock. A small canal bank wasj
crowded with refugees.
A careful check late today showed
I there was no loss of life.
Only a shift in the winds can check
the rapidly rising water. The dykeI
around the city of Moore Haven has
been damaged and the dyke extending
down to Lewistown, 20 miles from
here, has crumbled away in places so
!.that the flood is threatening the entire
t west shore of the lake.
