Will be Entertained During Stay by
Members of Law
George W. Wickersham, United
States Attorney-Gener1al in the ad-
ministration of President Taft, will
give a public address on "The League
of Nations" at 7:30 o'clock tonight in
the Congregational church at State-
and William streets. Mr. Wickersham
will be introduced by Dean Henry M.
Bates of the Law school.
To Address Students
Arriving in Ann Arbor this morn-
ing, Mr. 'Wickersham will have a
busy day ahead of him. He will be
entertained at luncheon by the Law
faculty and several Detroit lawyers
of prominence who have come out for
the day, at 12:15 at the Union. At 3
o'clock he will speak before students
of the Law school in room C on the
subject: "Some Recent Developments
in Legal Practice". Officers of the
local division of the League of Na-
tions Non-Partisan association under
whose auspices Mr. Wickersham comes
here, will give a dinner for him at
6 o'clock at the Union. Immediately
after his lecture in the evening, Mr.,
Wickersham will return to New York.
Mr. Wickersham's present eminence
in American legal circles Is not a re-
cent acquisition. He has been en-
gaged in practice of law for more
than 40 years, his only time away
from his office being the four years
he served in the cabinet of President
Taft fromn 1909 to 1913. He is a grad-
uate of Lehigh university, receiving
an A.B. degree from that institution
in the'class of 1875. Following three
years in business, he entered the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania, obtaining a
L.L.B. degree there in 1880. Then fol-
lowed two years of practice in Phila-
delphia until 1882 when he removed toi
New York to join the firm of Cad
walader and Strong, with which he
remained for 27 years.
Since his retirement from a notable
career in public life, Mr. Wickersham'
has been a. member of the firm of
Cadwalader, Wickersham and Taft'.
He is a prominent member of the
American Bar association, a trustee1
of the New York Association for Im-
proving Conditions of the Poor and of
the New York Institute for the blind,'
president of the Pennsylvania society
of New York, president of the Ameri-
can Prision association and a mem-
ber of the Legion of Honor. Mr. Wick-
ersham did notable work as chairman!
of the judiciary committee of the New I
York Constitutional convention of
1915. His latest distinction is elec-
tion to the presidency of the Ameri-
can Law Institute, an organization
recently formed to consider re-state-
ment of the law.
Endorsed League
Always a careful student of inter-
national affairs, Mr. Wickersham was
one of the first prominent Republi-]
cans to endorse the League of Na-
tions covenant when it ws submit-
ted to the Senate by President Wilson
in 1918. With Ex-president Taft and
Dr. A. Lwarence Lowell of Harvard
university, he actively sponsored the
ratification of the League covenant by
this country. Mr. Wiekersham is now

president of the council of the na-
tional League of Nations Non-Partisan!
association in which former Supreme,
court Justice John H. Clarke and
Prof. Irving Fisher of Yale university
are principal figures.
Inasmuch asthecapacity of the
church is limited, those desiring 3o
hear Mr. Wickersham are advised that
early attendance is the only guaran-
tee of obtaining a seat.

Ku Klux Issue Flames Forth
On Staid Princeton Campus


(By Special Correspondent),
Princeton, N. J., Nov. 1.-The flam-
ing, cross ard the prancing steed of
the Invisible Empire will never find a
haven in Princeton, N. J.
New Jersey, hot bed of Ku Klux
activities, is anxiously watching for
developments of a critical situation
which has arisen at Princeton. The
Daily Princetonian, student newspa-
per, yesterday rubbed the flints of
publicity which started the blaze o% in-
dignation and wrath among students
and professors.
Conservative of Conservatives
The campus, characterized by one
prominent faculty man as the one
place. "in the country which has
maintained a spirit of conservatism in
everything", is today a battleground
of intellectual forces allied against
the white-robed forces which would
seek to enter the traditional halls of
old Princeton.
The Princetonian's expose of Alma
College, a religious school near
Princeton, which was charged with

being affiliated with the Ku Klux Klan
was the signal for the outburst of
pent-up criticism on the part of un-
ldergraduates, members of the facul-
ty and the head of the institution,
President John Grier Hibben. The
college daily also disclosedthat Alma
College was sending broadcast the
teachings of the Klan.
Flays Ilan
"Hoods, sorcery, flaming crosses,
and general terrorism appeal to a cur-
ious type of animal which goes under
the collective name of the Klan. The
appeal of the Klan to make America
safe for Americans and for the just
administration of the law, coming
from such a source as it does, is an
amusing mockery", the Princetonian
President Hibben declared: "I an
sure that all right-minded Americans
must look with disfavor upon the pur-
poses of the Klan. This organization,I

Awaited Action of Union Boards and
More Definite Plans With
Regard to Affair
Action in regard to the holding of
a Union fair will be taken by the Sen-
ate committee of Student Affairs at
their meeting to be held at 4;30
o'clock this afternoon. When the
proposed plan for such a fair was
considered by that body at their last
meeting, action was deferred because
they felt that there was not a sufficient
amount of definite information in re-
gard to the affair to make an intelli-
gent decision. According to Joseph
A. Bursley, dean of students, who is
chairman of that committee, the
group believed that the board of gov--n
ernors of the Union should consider
the plan before the Senate committee
took any action.
The idea of holding a Union fair
similar to the old county fairs held
several years ago for the purpose
of raising funds for the constructionj
of the Union building has now been'
approved by both the board of direct-
ors of the Union and the board of
governors. The Student council has,
also shown themselves to be in favor
of staging such an entertainment to
raise money for the swimming pool.
Use of Field House Given
Permission has been secured from
the Board in Control of Athletics for
the use of the Yost field house. If,
after considering the plan today, the
Senate committee decides in favor of
the fair, plans will be started imme-
diately by the Union. It is thought
that the fair might be given immedi-
ately after the Christmas holidays.
An erroneous impression as to the
reason for the committee originally
postponing action was conveyed at the
time of the first meeting, according to
a statement given out by Dean Burs-
ley several days after the first meet-

Expect Pledges to Raise $10,000; Rest
to Come from Proposed
Campus Carnival
Completion of the Union simming
pool this year seems now practically
assured. A new proposal was made
yesterday by the board of governors
of the Union which, it is thought, may
be instrumental in bringing about
'work on the unfinished pool in the
near future.
The board agreed to let the con-
tracts for the pool as soon as pledges
for 2,000 swimming tickets have been
paid and providing that the Senate
committee on Student Affairs approves
of the plan for the Union fair. It is
through the holding of a fair that
it is proposed to raise the necessary
additional funds.
1,000 Men Now Pledged
In order to finish the pool twenty
thousand dollars is needed. Up to
last night the membership in the
"4,000 club" listed more than 1,000 men
which means that $5,000 has been
pledged. This money which is pay-
able up to the tenth of this month
will be used to complete the pool al-
though all those paying the $5 pledge
receive swimming tickets which will
entitle them to 20 swims. Money will
have to be, secured from other sources
to maintain the pool during the time
the tickets sold are being used, ac-
cording to Thomas J. Lynch, '25L,
president of the Union, but the board
feels that it is highly advisable to
begin work after $10,000 has been rais-
ed if permission is given to hold the

2,000 is Goal
The original aim of the "4,000 club"
was to secure 4,000 members each one
promising to pledge $5, but now that
work may begin with the acquisition
of only 2,000 members it is thought by
Union officials that 'this number can
