Stresemann's Selection for Postion
Not Favored by Partyt
Berlin, Nov. 26.-(By A. P.)-Dr.
Heinrich S. Albert up to late tonight
had not officially attained the rank of
17th chancellor of Germany.,
Obstructionist tactics by the Reich-
stag leaders have so far preventedt
him from winning over sufficient sup-
port, and available candidates for the
cabinet posts to warrant his appear-
ance in an official capacity before the
Reichstag, or otherwise vouchsafe him
the Reichstag tolerance as head of a
non-political minlstry.
The three .days crisis again revealed
the familiar picture of partisan jeal-
ousies and insistence on traditional
parliamentary prerogatives in the se-
lection of Dr. Albert, who is viewed as
an intruding outsider, aside from the
fact that he is wholly without party
President Ebert, however, thus far
is apparently determinedto permit Dr.
Albert to exhaust all possibilities be-
fore yielding, or decreeing .the Reich-
stag's dissolution, and late tonight in-,
formed the party leaders who sought
an interview with him that he wouldl
receive them tomorrow.
Dr;. Albert is accorded wholly nega-.
tive support in the partisan organs,
which declare that his membership in
Dr. Cuno's non-parliamentary cabinet
is a distinct liability, and also desig-f
nates his selection as unfortunate in
view of his prewar activities in the
United States.t

Liquor Runner Flying British Flag
Captured by U. S. Coast
Guards Ye!terday
New York, Nov. 26.-(By A. P.)-
The rum schooner, Tomako, captured
by coast guards yesterday after an ex-
citing chase six miles off Seabright,
N. J., while flying the British flag, was
seized with the knowledge that her
registry papers were faulty and that
she positively had' been identified with
the landing of liquor on American
shores, government agents announced
"Rummy Bill" McCoy, rum smug-
gler king, John Brophy, alias Downey,
his skipper and the seven members
of the Tom ako's crew were arraigned
before a federal commissioner here
charged with illegally transporting
liquor into the United States. They
were released on $5,000 bail each
pending proceedings in which the au-
thorities of New Jersey will seek their
removal for trial there on the charge.
McCoy also appeared in federal
1 court in Brooklyn to plead not guilty
to an indictment charging illegal
liquor transportation while he was
aboard the schooner Henry Marshall,
the first ship of British registry to be
seized outside the three mile limit on
rum carrying charges. In this case he
was released on $15,000 bail which he
furnished in cash from a handbag con-
taining $68,000 alleged to be receipts
from the sale of whiskey to runners
off the New Jersey coast.,
The Tomako originally was the
American schooner, Arethusa and un-
der this name she appeared in Janu-
ary, 1921, the first rum carrier of the
American dry era. Her shining white
sides and yellow sticks have been

Dr. Kammerer, Biologist and Zoolog-
ist, Arrives in New York Today
On Steamship Resolute
New York, Nov. 26.-(By A. P.)--- I
Dr. Paul o ammerer, Austrian sci-j
entist who claims to have proved by
experiments on salamanders, frogs
and other animals that Darwin was
right in his theory that acquired
characteristics can be inherited, ar-
rives tomorrow on the Resolute.
Dr. Kammerer, biologist and zool-!
ogist at the University of Vienna and
lecturer at Oxford and Cambridge
Universities, has been a collaborator
with Eugene Steinbach, of Vienna,
who claims to have discovered in a
minor surgical operation, a means of
rejuvination of both men and wvomen.
In a lecture before the Cambridge
University Society of Natural History,
Dr. Kammerer presented his argu-
ment that characteristics acquired
during the lifetime of men and ani-
mals can be transmitted. He exhibit-
ed once blind newts which he said
had grown eyes under his treatment
and were able to see.
"It is possible through experiment-1
ing to make genius hereditary," he
said. "I believe the beautiful ideals
of parents can be made to become in-
sticts in their children."
The scientist told of experiments
with several general offsprings of sal-
amanders. He said he had found that
offsprings of salamanders kept in or-
ange, cages tended to become orange;
those in a black cage to become black.

Dr. Charles Gilkey will be the
principal speaker at the Thanksgiv-
ing day services to be held at 10
o'clock Thursday morning in Hill
auditorium under the auspices of the
Student Christian association. Dr.
Gilkey has traveled through the
world extensively and comes here as
one who has spoken to university stu-
dents in all parts of the United States.
Receiving his education at Harvard
and at the Union Theological semin-f
ary of New York, he has also studiedI
at the University of Berlin and Mar-
burg on the continent and at the Uni-
versities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, and-
Oxford in England. He further made
trips through Palestine and the Holy
Standing out pre-eminently in 'his
profession, Dr. Gilkey's series of war
sermons have helped to make him
famous. In the following years since
the war he has given a series on the
lessons from the great war. During
1917 and 1918, he spent his time in
the officer's training camps and work-
ed among private soldiers.
