Student Council Members To Confer
With Directors On Formation
Of Permanent Fund
Members of the Student council
and representatives of the band will
meet tonight with the officers of the
Alumni association to discuss means
for putting the band on a firmer finan-
cial basis. The gathering will be held
at 7:15 o'clock in Alumni room of
Alumni Memorial hall, at the invita-
tion of the alumni association.
This action is being taken following
the move of the Board of Directors of
the association last Friday when they
resolved to donate a certain percent-
age of the grid-graph receipts sending
the band to out-of-town games, start-
ing next year.
It is expected that before three more
years the band trips will be financed
completely from this source. It is
also hoped that a tag day will not be
necessary .next year.
Twenty-five percent of the profits
taken in at the showing of the graph
Saturday for the Wisconsin game will
also be donated to the band trips of
next year.
Oklahoma City, Nov. 13.-Plans to
expedite the trial of J. C. Walton on
22 articles of impeachment charging
corruption in office, moral turpitude,
neglect of duty and incompetence, in-.
volved a lengthy executive session last
night in which members of the senate-
court were said to have discussed rules
of procedure.
No official announcement was made,
Lt it is understood 'a proposal to el-
imtnate certain of the impeachment
articles on the basis they could not be
termed impeachment articles was con-
sidered. That action, it is pointed out,
would remove the necessity for num-
bers of witnesses and thereby shorten
the trial, which now threatens to drag
on possibly through the new year.

Prominent Speakers Secured for Fu-

Green Tree Inn
T. Hawley Tapping, '16L, field sec-
retary for the Alumni Association gave
the address of the evening last night
at the second meeting of the Press
club held at the Green Tree Inn. The
subject chosen by Mr. Tapping was
the Booth News bureau, on which he
worked in Ann Arbor up to the time
he was appointed to his present posi-

Is made some attempt at discrimina-
tion between spot stories and more
stable news. Choosing only such stor-
ies as are known to be exciting much
interest and comment from the read-

this bureau to attach some local in-
terest to it by securing the personal
comment of persons well known and
highly thought of by the communi-
ty" -{
In the case of the world court, says I
Mr. Tapping, various attempts were
made to secure the opinions of differ-
ent professors on the campus. In
this manner he found them to be very
reticent about giving interviews and
statements, the reason for which, he
says, is as follows;
"So often have these statements,
given to the press in the most hearty
good spirit, have been amplified and
abused that the man naturally is afraid
of having the same thing happen
twice. These misquotations, the shame-
ful lack of accuracy on the part of
our modern newspapers, has resulted
in an almost universal fear of allow-'
ing statements to be published. It is
just this situation that the Bureau is
endeavoring with some success to ov-
Praises College Papers
Mr. Tapping closed his remarks with
his expression of the value of a jour-
nalistic training on the staffs of the
various college newspapers. He also
pointed out the fact that Ann Arbor
was complimented by the fact that
the Associated Press has a special rep-
resentative here at all times.
Ralph N. Byers, '24, Sports editor
of The Daily, related some interest-
ing experiences while on "the other
end of the Extra". His remarks were
followed by those of Lawrence La
Rouche, '22, who explained in a very
amusing manner his experiences while
acting as rural representative for the

Ebert, Streseman Hold Conference
With State Premiers, Ruhr,
Rhineland Leaders
Berlin, Nov. 13-(By A.P.) -The fol-
lowing official statement was issued
here this evening:
kWith regard to many reports abroad
that an autonomous Rhineland was to
be proclaimed with the consent of the
Imperial government, it is stated in
authoritative circles that the Imper-
ial government maintained its attitude
that no discussion is possible with re-,
gard to alterations in the legal rela-,
tions of the Rhineland and the Ruhr
to the Reich.
"The Imperial government will nev-
er take any steps in this direction and
will never sanction the proclamation
of a Rhineland republic. The only
Reich is the constitution of the Reich.
Berlin, Nov. 13-($y A.P.)--Official'
announcement of the creation of an
automonous Rhineland state within
the German federal republic will be
forthcoming tonight, as a result of
a conference of the ministers with theE
federal premier, today.
President Ebertdand Chancellor.
Streseman were in conference
throughout the day with the premiers
of the federated states and a special,
committee of 15 Ruhr and Rhineland'
leaders. The delibreations were sur-
rounded with complete secrecy, theirI
progress being concealed even from'
the Reichstag leaders, but it is learned'
on good authority that long delayed
decision to decree automony for the
Rhineland is now finally concluded.
The action wasttaken as a resultdof
the chaotic political, economic, and
social condition in the district, which
is daily becoming more confused
through the agressiveness of the Sep-
aratists and the government inabil-
ity to arrive at an understanding with
the occupying powers with respect to
the resumption of economic activi-
ties, and the restoration of German
administrative authority in the Ruhr
and Rhineland since the recall of the
passive resistance.

Visit of Dr. Kan of Dutch Ministry
May Have Influenced War Lord
To Stay In Holland
Doorn, Holland, Nov. 13.--(By A. P,)
-William Hohenzollern, the former
German emperor, goes calmly about
f his customary tasks at Doorn house,
notwithstanding tihe reports that he
was preparing to depart for the Fath-
erland. It is asserted here that there
is no foundation for the report that he
and the members of his entourage
have been -granted passports for a
journey to Berlin, or elsewhere in..
Germany and those close to him de-
clare that he has no intention of lea'-
ing Doorn.
Dr. Kan of the Dutch ministry of
the interior, who had a long conference
with the former emperor yesterday,
may have had something to do with
the announcement that the former
war lord would continue to reside in
Holland, for it is believed that the
purpose of his visit was to inquire into
tole Ex-Kaiser's position and to reit-
erate in view of the Crown Prince's
hasty departure the difficulty that
might face Holland at the hands of
the allies if the head of the House
of Doorn followed in his son's foot-

Doorn, Holland, Nov. 13.-(By A.P.)
-Baron .chimnel Pennick, Burgo-
master of Doorn assured the corres-
pondent of the Associated Press today
on his word of honor that he was
not aware of any intention on the
part of former Emperor William to
leave Doorn. The Baron added that
he considered that such folly as the
ex-emperor's returning to Germany
was unbelievable.
It is' known that Dr. Kan of the
Dutch ministry of the interior had a
conference with the Ex-Kaiser at the
Chateau, but nothing has transpired
as to the purpose of his visits. Baron

ever, followed inquiries in this con-
