Dissolution of Entente Cordiale Seen
As Two Nations Seem
London, Nov. 16.--The British gov-
ernment will not accede to the de-
mands of France for punitive mea-
sures against Germany and .has
notified the British ambassador in
Pars to so inform the Council of Am-
After the cabinet had deliberated
today at length on the reiterated terms
of M. Poincaire, the foreign office to-
night telegraphed Lord Trewe, the
Brittish ambassador to France, to in-
form the Council of Ambassadors
when it resumes its sitting that Great
Britan remains firm against the im-
position on Germany of the severe
coercive penalties threatened by
As Premier Poincaire declared

separately if Great Britain refuses to
join her, there appears to be a hope-
less deadlock between the two nations
whnch some of the political observers
believe portends an ultimate dissolu-
tion of the Entente Cordiale.
It is felt in ministerial circles here
that matters are exactly where they
were last August when Lord Curzon,
the British foreign secretary, sent his
famous note to Premi4er Poincaire in
which he declared that Great Britain
could not much longer delay separate
action toward a settlement of the
Ruhr situation without the gravest
conseuences to the recovery of trade,
and to the peace of the world.
Rome, Nov. 16-'7h Italian gov-
ernment can not give its approval to
any further occupation of German ter-
ritory," declared Premier Mussolini In
the Senate tonight.
"One must have the courage to say
that the German people can not be
destroyed," the .Premier continued
"they .are a people that have known a
civilization which tomorrow may again
be an integral part of European cvliz-
ation." .
Signor Mussolini intimated that Italy
did not contemplate - such a gravs
step as breaking with, France which
would, in a certain sense, be equiva-
lent to declaring the treaty of Ver
sailles void and might involve another
European conflagration and leave
Italy isolated.
The Premer declared the request to
deport the former Crown Prince from
Germany was a mistake. It meant an-
oth'er deadlock for the Prince could
not leave Ge~rpiany without further
complicating the situation. -
Tickets for the play, "A Thousand
Years Ago" to lie given Tuesday eve-
ning -Nov. 20 by the members of
Masques, may still be obtained today
and Monday and Tuesday afternoons
at 111 auditorium.
Although the tickets were placed in
every organized woman's house on the
campus, the women have not support-
ed the play in the usual manner, and
have not responded in the ticket sale.
This is the only play given by
Masques during the year for which

admission is charged, and therefore
an unusual amount of support is need-
ed. Support in the sale is urged by
those in charge.

Famous As Leader Of Modern School
And For Originality Of


Assembly To Convene On Jan.
Instead of Dec. 20 As -


London, Nov. 16.-Parliament was
formally dissolved today and a royal
proclammation printed in the Gazette
tonight summons a new Parliament to
assemble Jan. 8. It was thought that
the new session would convene Dec.
20 but the cabinet decided upon the
later date.
Two prolonged cabinet meetings
were held today, one ostensibly to
draft the government ,election.. mani-
festo and the other to discuss election
routine. Rumor has it that Premier
Baldwin is having great difficulty in
holding his part and that of the gov-
ernment together.
The Premier will begin. .his new
campaigning under adverse auspices.
Not only has he had the greatest dif-
ficulty to prevent deflections of col-
leagues with free trade beliefs, but he
has failed to consolidate his party by
securing Lord Birkenhead and J. Aus-
tin Chamberlain as members of the
The inside story of this affair shows
it was the revolt of colonial office
which deferred the Premier from tak-
ing Lord Birkenhead and Mr. Cham-
berlain into the cabinet.
A political surprise today was the
announcement that Lord Robert Cecil
had been raised to the peerage. The
Lord Privy Seal has held his present
title of Lord by reason of the fact
that he is a son of the- third Marquis
of Salisbury. His elevation to the
peerage is a clear indication of the.
difficulty Premier Baldwin is exper-°
feneing. Lord Robert is a stalwart
free trader and had already decided
not to contest his seat in the House
of Commons.
The official explanation of his de-
cision not to run isthat Lord Robert's
physician advised him to avoid great
exertion until after Christmas. It
adds that as Lord Robert has to at-
tend a meeting of the Council of the
League of Nations during that per-
iod he will be unable to take part in
the general election.
Oklahoma City, Nov. 16.-The prose-
cution in the impeachment trial of.

Reappointment Of Wayne County And
Enaction Of Gasoline Tax
Expected .
Lansing, Nov. 16.-A three week's
special session of the legislature,'
when it convenes to consider reappor-
tionment Dec. 4, is expected by state
officials. The governor and others ex-
pressed the belief that in that time the
assembly will adopt a plan of reap-
portionment which will give Wayne
some increase over its present rep-
resentation in the legislature and will
enact a gasoline tax supplemented
either by a reduced license fee sys-I
tem or a graduated weight tax.
The rearrangement of the legis-
lative districts must, according to
the constitution, be done in 1923.
Highway finance may be considered,
any time. It-is presumed, however,
that the legislature will adjourn the'
week before Christmas and will try
to clean up its work by then. It is not
considered likely that the session
will be resumed after the holidays.
The members only get paid for 20
days in a special session. The as-
sembly is expected to adjourn not lat-
er than Dec. 21, and not come back
unless another special session is
The prevailing belief among state
officials is that the assembly will give'
Wayne 4 or not more than 6 addition-
al representatives and perhaps 2 sen-
ators. Highway finance, according to
the popular predictions, will be solved
with a 2-cent gasoline tax and a
weight tax. Many members have al-
ready informed the governor that
they Will support a combination high-
way finance plan.
It generally is conceded that there
will be a stiff fight over apportion-
ment. Upstate members avowedly
are opposed to any regrouping of the

Wisconsin Women
against Drinking'
Madison, Wis., Nov. 16.-By a unan-.
imous vote at a compulsory meeting
here last night, 3,000 University off
Wisconsin co-eds went on record ast
opposed to drinkng among students of
both sexes, and decided to appeal tot
Federal authorities to check drinking'
and its sources in Madison.
A resolution prohibiting co-eds from
"making dates" with men who dr:nk
failed to pass. Protesting this reso-1
ultion, girls attending the meeting
chorused: "How can we tell if they]
have been drinking?"i
The resolution adopted declared:i
"That the women of Wisconsin go oni

dali; Babcock, Hawkins
on Lineup
Special to The Daily
Madison, Wis., Nov. 16.-With the
prospect of playing on a .wet Geld lac-
ing, Michigan's crippled Varsity foot-
ball squad arrived here today and took
up their quarters at the Park htetl.
Coach Yost spent two hours aboard
the train giving instructions to Rock-
well and Grube, both of whom will
probably see service directing the
team against the Badgers. Upon
awakenign this morning, Yost called
a meeting of the entire squad and held
a lengthy discussion on the offense and
defense that will be employed in to-
morrow's game.
Team Has Workout
Upon their arrival in Madison the
squad was taken to their hotel and
then proceeded to Camp Randall,
where a light drill was engaged in.
The men who are scheduled to take
the field when the opening whistle
blows were all in fine shape.
During the drill, which consisted for
the most part ,in signal practice with
Rockwell and Grube alternating as
quarterbacks a light rain fell for a
few minutes. It is hoped in the Mich-
igan camp that the dark clouds will
clear away before dawn, but a soggy
field, which is bound to prove a seri-
ous handicap to runners like Kipke
and Rockwell, will only serve to in-
creasesthe determination of the Wol-
Tomorrow's struggle recalls to mnd
the famous' battlethatwas fought hre
two years ago between the Badgers
and the Maize and Blue. Wisconsi
had defeated all her rivals ad wasm
looked upon as Confertence champions,
Michigan :d h lost to OhiQ' State' and
managed:to''beat Illinois 3-0;, with a
patched up 'eleven, and then traveled
to Wisconsin, crippled as she is this
year, to do battle with the then Rich-
ard coached aggregation. Wisconsin
ruled :the heavy -favorites, with even
the most optinistic Wolverine sup-
porters expecting defeat. The strug-
gle that took'place on that memorable
afternoon has gone down in the rec-
ords as the most gruelling football
battle that Michigan has engaged in
since the incep~tion of the modern style
of play. The game resulted in a tie
each team scoring a touchdown and
liclfng the goal afterwards.
Machines Arrive
A large array of gaudy colored ma-
chines have already arrived from Ann?
Arbor and fleeting about the city, add-
ing to the excitement that is prevail-
ing here. Many more cars are ex-
pected before the game 'starts torpor-
row and the squadron of flivvers will
probably form.a' parade in the morn-
mng. 'Alumni 'of both schools have ar'
rived but the main body of Wolverine
rooters are not due until the special
come .some time tomorrow. -
The Badger squad is in shape for'
the tussle, as no serious in juries were
reported after the game with the l111-
ni. The team is set upon wiping out
the sting of last week's defeat by fin-
ishing on the long' end of the sore
against the Yostnmen.' With both
teams keyed up to the highest pitch,
nothing short of a great battle should
ensue when the eleven lock horns in
the stadium.
It is rumored that Coach 'Ryan will
make an eleventh hour change in his
kneup, seilding in Eagleberger or Wil-
liams in place of Holmes at half back.
The former is the fastest man on the
Badger squad, and Coach Ryan figures
that the speedster will be able to run
the Michigan ends. The new mentor
is satisfied with his line.
