Chicago, Dec. 3.-(By A. P.)-Selec-
tion of officials for 1924 Western con-
ference football games is to be taken
out of the hands of 'the coaches and
handled by a "Big Ten" committee
similar to the system by which Major
League baseball umpires receive as-
signments. Prof. Ralph W. Aigler, of
the University of Michigan, and Prof.
D. J. Lambert, of the University of
Iowa, together with Major John L.
Griffith, commissioner of athletics,
will form the committee to choose of-
ficials for all games instead of having
them selected by respective coaches
as has been the custom.
Thecommittee, Major Griffith said
tonight, will meet here soony to draw
up an approved list from the names
by conference athletic directors. From
this list, which is expected to include
25 or 30 names, four officials for each
game will be designated by the coin-
mitte for the 1921 season.


Senate Meeting Uneventful But House
Compelled to Adjourn Until
Noon Today
Washington, Dec. 3.-(By A. P.)-
Republican insurgents prevented the
organization today of the sixty-eighth
Congress. Hardly had the new House
and Senate convened at noon before
the Progressive group in the House
made good its threat to block the elec-
tion of a speaker. Four ballots were
taken without result, and the House
adjourned until noon tomorrow when
Republican organization leaders will
renew their efforts to re-elect Speaker
In contrast with the storm in the
House, was the uneventful 45 minute
session of the Senate. Although an
organization fight is in the back-
ground there was no effort to force It
today, and there were indications that
it would be deferred at least until
after President Coolidge has delivered
his first annual message to Congress :
The president can not deliver his
message however until the House Is
organized, nor can the new Congress
function until then. Some leaders
a said that even the Senate would be
unable to transact any business other
than that of receiving and acting upon
nominations and treaties, which is
solely Senate function.
While leaders of both the Republi-.
can organization and the insurgents
declared Immediately after the close
of today's session of the House that
the fight would go on tomorrow, there
were signs that a break might come
before another overnight adjourn-
ment. The Progressive bloc met to-
night to canvass the situation. and
determine their further course.
Throughout the balloting for speak-
er today the Republican insurgents
passed 17 votes for Cooper of Wis-.
consin, one of the leaders of their
movement. This number of itself con-
stitutes the balance of power.
Exhibit Depicts
"Good Odd Days"
Photographs and publications of
Michigan in "the good old days" are
on exhibition in the main corridor of
the general library. The contrast is
marked between the physical aspect,
of the campus In the early days of the
history of the University and the pres-
ent tide when so many new changes
are being made by the buildings and
grounds department. This is plainly
evident. from the pictures of the old .
library, medical and law buildings,
and the plan of the campus with its
stretches of lawn In place of Memor-
ial hall, the engineering building and
all edifices on the east side of the
The evolution of the student publi-
cations is also remarkablyapparent
upon comparison of the first copy .of
"The University of Michigan Daily"
which appeared on Monday Sept. 29,
1890, and today's issue. The first
copy was a four column paper half
the length of the page in use at pres-
ent. Chimes and the Gargoyle are
conspicuous by their absence in the
exhibition of those earlier papers, but
"The Inlander", "The University
Palladium", the Michiganensan and
"The University News Letter" seem
to have been the popular publications
before 1900.

Ousted Governor Begins Court Fight
In Attempt to Quash
Oklahoma City, Okla, Dec. 3, (y
A.P.)-Former Gov. J. C. Walton open-
ed his fight today against charges of
criminal offenses while he was in
office, by filing motions in district
court here to quash the indictment re-
turned against him, to disqualify the
presiding judge, and procure a change
of venue.
The disposed executive was to have
been formally arraigned today but
this went over until the various mot--
ions are acted upon. He is charged
with diverting state funds to his own1
use, intimidating an officer by .com-

grand jury called to investigate the

District Judge Joe W. Clark denied
Walton's motion to disqualify himself
at the beginning of the proceedings,
whereupon the defense counsel an-
nounced they would seek a mandamas
writ from the state court of criminal
appeals to force him from the bench.
Walton's attorney's set out in his mot-
ion that Judge Clark is prejudiced and
incapable of giving him a fair hear-
The posecution was given until
tomorrow to prepare its argument
against the motion to quash the in-
When this action is disposed of a
decision will be rendered on the appli-
cation for a change of venue
The defense also took its case to
the county court where one of the
seven indictments returned against
the former executive-that relating
to the grand jury offense-charges of
misdemeanor. A motion to quash
this count was filed but no action
was taken.
The Educational Foundation com-
mission for relief in Belgium has an-
nounced that a number of scholar-
ships to Belgium universities during
the academic year of 1924-25 will be
awarded before April 1, 1924,
These fellowships were established
for the commemoration of the work
that the commission did during the
war, and also for the purpose-of "cre-
ating a closer exchange of ideas be-
tween the United States and Belgium."
The fellowship carries with it a stip-
end of 15,000 francs plus tuition fees,
payable in Belgium, and first class
traveling expenses from the residence
in United States to the University of
A candidate for the fellowship must
be an American citizen, must have a
speaking knowledge of French and
must be a graduate of, either at the
time of application, or before Septem-
ber, 1924, of a recognized college in
the United States. He must also have
definite plans for his proposed study
in Belgium.

Italian Soldiers Aid in Long Search
For Dead; Build Huts for
Bergamo, Italy, Dec. 3.-(By A. P.)
-King Victor Emanuel is now at the
scene of the flood which laid waste
the valley for many miles around Ber-
gamo when the great dyke guarding
Gleno Lake broke. Despite the rain
and cold and terrible conditions of
the terrain, the King insisted upon
making as extensive an inspection as
possible. He was accompanied by
Deputies Carnazza, Bonardi, and Far-
inacci. He promised ample assistance
to repair the vast losses, which are
estimated at 200,000 000 lire.
The King visited as far as he was
able the ruind villages, and talked
with some of the injured in the hos-
pitals. Starting where the village of
Corna once stood, the King was soon
surrounded by peasants who gave him
a hearty welcome, their cries of
"Viva" being in strange contrast to
the desolationof the scene.
The list of dead numbers more than
600, according to latest available fig-
At Coler, which forms part of Dezzo,
there are only live survivors out of'
175 inhabitants. At Corna, 150 per-
ished; at Dezzo 219; at Bueggio 14;
at another small village 7, while the
various electric stations lost 60 men.
Already 200 dead have been taken
from the mud which the flood left in
its wake.
Great activity prevailed throughout
the valley today, military trucks, au-
tomobiles, carriages and every kind of
conveyance being used to transport
colthing, food and tents for the sur-
vivors. A far reaching search is
being made for those who perished,
for the submerged valley is 15 miles
in extent and the force of the water
was so powerful that even parts of
the dam itself were carried down to
the village of Lovere, at the head of'
Lake Iseo The soldiers have built
barracks along the valley, and in this
way many of the refugees, who were
forced to sleep out of doors last night, I
have been taken care of.
The royal engineers and others are
constructing wooden huts for the
thousands of homeless.
Ralph Upson, twice winner of the
International Balloon meet, president
of the Aircraft Development corpora-j
tion ,and known nationally as an au-
thority on aviation problems will ad-
dress the University Chamber of
Commerce tomorrow night in room
306 of the Union.
. Mr. Upson first became known when,
he distinguished himself in a number
of big meets before he entered the
international competition. He is offic-
ially connected with the National So-
ciety of Aeronautics.j
This address is one of a series being,
held by the Chamber of Commerce
for its members and others interested
in the subjects with the view of allow-
ing students who have chosen a par-
ticular vocation to hear the leaders
in that branch of work.

The following resolution was unani-
Mously passed by the Faculty Repres-
entatives of the Western Conference
schools Decj1 at Chicago.
"It is the firm conviction of this
Conference that there is nothing more
important to the preservation of
friendly relations between universit-
ies, and even intercollegiate athletics
in general, than competent officiating
that every effort should be made to
place in charge of intercollegiatercon-
tests only men of integrity, determin-'
ed to see to it that these events are
conducted according to the rules, and
that the contestants, coaches, trainers,
and others connected wit the admin-
istration of athletic departments
should give their whole hearted sup-
port to the officials and their work,
whether decisions and rulings made
on the field are agreed with or not.
It is further the opinion of this
body that every effort should be
made to bring home to those mak-
ing up the general body of spectators
at intercollegiate games and contests
that true sportsmanship demands re-
spect and courtesy for the officials
in charge and their work."

Berlin, Dec. 3.--(By A. P.)-The
first welcome signs of cheaper living
in Germany became apparent today
when the butchers reduced meat
prices from 20 to 30 per cent, as a
result of the action of the foodrmin-
ister, who on Friday last told repre-
sentatives of the meat trado that sev-
ere measures would be adopted if prof-
iteering continued."
The process of reducing prices was
partly assisted by the gradual coming
into circulation of more rente marks,
the new paper notes issued on gold
basis, ehis enabling the breeders to
dispose of their cattle.
Fish and vegetables also had a.
cheaper tendency today, and attempts
will immediately follow to enforce
lower prices for bread, milk, fats, an(J

likely to come down except under

London, Dec 3- (By A.P.)-The
United States as an object lesson
comes oftener into the election,
speeches than any other country in
references to the Fordney tariff, the
American shipping industry and the
Baldwin debt funding settlement.
Perhaps the most disputed point herej
is whether the high tariff has been
responsible for the disappearance of
the unemployment problem in the
United States.
Premier Baldwin up to the present
time has no decided to reply to the
numerous attacks relative to his
part in the debt funding, the latest of{
which was made by Winston Church-
Mr. Lloyd George, speaking at Nor-I
wich today, said that Americans had
been much quoted by the protection-
ists, but in the spring of 1918, dvr-
ing poor broken, free trade, Britian
had carried more than half the rein-
forcenents of the wealthy protection-
ists country across the Atlantic.
This very week the United States
shipping board had been explaining
its inability to compete with Britian,
because one result of the tariff was
to increase the cost of shipbuilding
materials; so that ships could be
on the Clyde 25 per cent cheaper than
in America.
