ward W. Bok for the best practical
plan for attaining international peace,
is expected to be reached by Jan. 1,
1924, according tohan announcement
made recently. The date set as the
deadline for submission of plans was
Nov. 15, and while many of the plans

More than 81 national organizations
of both religious, social and com-
mercial nature have submitted joint
plans to the committee, and have sig-
nifled their willingness to cooperate
with the committee in charge in the
conduction of a national referendum
in January. Through these channels,

the ratification of the plan by the con-
gress of the United States. Various:
other prizes are also to be given, for

under the auspices of the Harding
Memorial association will be cele-
brated Dec. 9-16, according to state-
ments given out recently. The aims.
of the association is to pay respect. to
the dead president of the United
States in a manner which will create

Warren G. Harding
a lasting memorial to be forever in
the eyesand hearts of the American
people. Included in the plans are ar-
rangements to perpetuate his home,
where he carried on his famous
"Front Porch Campaign", as a shrine,
something on the order of plans car-1
ried out by the D. A. R. in respect to
Mount Vernon. This shrine is to
housenall mementos of his life, includ-
ing his personal effects both before
and during his stay in the White
House, and will be a mecca to all who
desire to pay respect to the memory,
to the former president.-
In accordance with a much desired
plan of President. Harding, funds are
to be set asidenfor the organization
of a.means of education for men and
women so that they may be trained
Sfor intelligent government service,
One of the ambitions of the late execu-
tive was to see an increase in the
efficiency of the various govebrnment
offices, and the Harding Memorial as-
sociation wishes to carry out this wish
as far as possible.
p Knowing President Harding's love
of children,, which was brought out al-
most daily in incidents around the

White House, the association plans on}
making possible small donations from
school children throughout the coun-
try. The name of each child who
makes a donation, no matter how
small, is to be preserved and later
bound into a large volume, and plac-
ed on exhibition in his home, in Mar-
on, Ohio.
The collection of funds for this f
work it not to be a matter of solicit- f
ition, but of donation, and for the pur- I
ose many local committees have beenv
appointed by the central office.
Charles A. Sink of the School of Mus-
c, is chairman of the Washtenaw @
County committee, and has as com- f
mitteemen nine of the more promin- I
ent men of the various parts of the t
county. These men will . take do-t
nations as will all local organizations I
already established, as the churches, I
chool, etc. Payment may also beI

IIBLICL HISTORY TO BE1
REVISED BY ISCOVEIESH
Philadelphia, Dec. 8-(By A.P.)- I
New light will be thrown on old Bib- I
ical stories when scientists complete I
leciphering the hieroglyphics on an- c
ique statues recently discovered in t
Palestine, according to Dr. George B.
Grordon, director of the University of If
Pennsylvania Museum, who has re- f
turned from a tour to the sites of ex-
peditions operating in Mesopotamia,I t
Egypt and Palestine. During his tripa
Dr. Gordon arranged for the ship-b
nent of 100 tons of antique relics to t
P fhiladephia. They are expected to
rrive about January 1 and will be set
p at the University Museum.
Among the relics being shippedt
from Egypt is the throne room of f
Meneptah; one of the Pharohs. Jewel-
y, mummies and mummy cases also
are included. From Palestine Dr.q
Gordon shipped a basalt tablet, a bat-
tle monument, which is expected to
hrow light on the story of Exodus;
Roman glass, mosaic pavements, many
small objects in bronze and a jars
which was found filled with silver
coins. I
"We don't expect to make- any finds
n lgypt as tremendously important
as those by Lord Carnaryo," said Dr.j
Gordon. "However, the work we are I
doing at Ur, in Mesopotamia and at
Beisan, in Palestine, is very import-
ant. We are digging up the Temple
of the Moon in Ur. -
Hawkins To 'Study
"Big Picture" Wa stel
The so-called "big pictre," those
costing from $300,000 up to a million I
dollars,.are to be supplanted by much I
more moderately priced productions .
in 1924, according to the contention
of Frank J. Hawkins, distribution'
manager for the United Producers,
and Distributors, who is making a
sudy of conditions among the exhibit-
ors and fans throughout the country.
Mr. Hawkins declares that in many
instances the smaller productions I
costing less than $100,000 are eclips- I
ing the million dollar affairs in actual
box-office receipts.
"The great common people are
sounding the death knell for the ex-
travagant wastes inpicture produc-
tion by withholding their support
from many super-films,' declares Mr.
Hawkins. "The demand today is for
more entertaining movies which do
not obviously attempt to teach a mor-
al. No amount of elaborate "-sets",
and lavish display will be able to
compete before the amusing, well-
acted play, even if the cost is only
$50,000."
The movement is one which is ex-
pected to be of tremendous import-
ance in the, cinema profession, and
will eventually result in the returning
of the cinema to the hands and the
hearts of the masses. The demand
today is for satisfactory entertain-
ments at a popular price.

SOCIALISTS GAIN
ELECTION VICTORY
Vienna, Dec. 8-(By A.P.)-The So-
crialists made a decided gain in the
recent election of members to the
National Assembly. They lost but
one seat, while the Conservative par-
ties lost seventeen., This - assembly
has 18 fewer members than the last
one. It is held'in some quarters that
the Socialist success was largely due
to organization; they got out their
vote, while the Conservativesdid'enot.

Football Receipts Benefit
All Athletic Departmeuts

Celebration at Philadelphia in 1926
Will Mark 150th Year of
Independence

"Where does all the money go?"
How often have you heard that ques-
tion asked, or even asked it yourself,
as you watched the thousands upon
thousands of people pour into Ferry
field on the day of a big football
game?
It seems that an unlimited amount
of money must be pouring into thel
coffers of the Athletic association. But
the first thing that happens to the
proceeds of all Conference games
cuts the receipts in half,. as all Con-
ference teams split the proceeds on
athletic contests. This includes an
allowance which must be made to
cover student tickets of the Univer-
sity.
With her share of the proceeds,
Michigan does as much or more than
any other school in the country. In
the first place Michigan spends a
large part of the proceeds to 'main-
tain her football system. This re-
quires about $15,000 a year, exclusive
of coaching. Many Eastern schools
spend more than, that and do not fur-
nish equipment for freshmen, Har-
vard being a notable example.
In addition football proceeds must
actually support such sports as track,
which suffers a deficit in the neigh-
borhood of $10,000 yearly, swimming,
hockey, wrestling. and several others.
Football must also partially support
at times, basketball and baseball.
With the completion of the new
Yost Field house, the Michigan ath-

letic plant became worth almost $3,-
000,000. Of this only 20 acres of
land, and the, gates of Ferry field, both
of which were donated by Dexter M.
Ferry, have been given to the Athletic
association. All the rest has been
paid for through the proceeds of ath-
letic contests, mainly football.
An example of the way that this is
done may be seen in the new field
house. That structure cost $450,000,
and must he paid for out of the pro-
ceeds of intercollegiate athletics.
With an attendance of approximate-
ly 225,000 people last year, the as-
sociation received between $175,000
and $190,1000. After deducting the
large expenses that have been enu-
merated above, there is not much left
to pay for the many minor things that
come up during the y'ear.
After every game a complete ac-
counting is made. This is done by
the aid of a sworn statement regard-
ing the exact number of tickets de-
livered from the printing company- to!
the Athletic association. : In this way
every ticket is accounted for. After
the accounts have been settled by the
Athletic association, they are strictly
audited by a certified public account-
ant.
This final compilation is then pre-
sented for final approval to the boardC
In Control of Athletics, of which Prof.
Ralph W. Aigler, of the Law school,
is chairman.

BRITISH AERIL POWER
London, Dec. 9-(By A.P.)-Civil-
lans will form a large part of the per-
sonnel of the British Royal Air
Force, which is being increased to
more than twice its present strength.
Two-thirds of the men in the reserve
squadrons are to be civilians, and the
auxiliary squadrons are to be or- I
ganized on a basis similar to that of
the Territorial Army, comparable to
state militia in America. It is plan-I
ned to have civilian labor care for all
the repair work, other than minor
running repairs, in most of the reg-
ular squadrons, all the special reserve
squadrons and all the auxiliary squad-
rons.
By thus calling on the civilian labor
reservoir, Great Britain would more
than do uble her air power with an
addition. of only one-third of the pres-
ent personnel, according to Sir Sam-
uel Hoare, Secretary of State for Air.

EXHIBIT WILL SHOW WORLD'S
PROGRESS SINCE CENTENNIAL
Philadelphia, Dec. 8-Plans for the
elebration of the one hundred and
iftieth anniversary of the signing of
.he Declaration of Independence are
ow under way at Philadelphia where
:he celebration will take place from
A.pril 30 to Nov. 16, 1926. It will also
ae the aim of the celebration to por-
.ray progress of the world that has
taken place since the Centennial Ex-
ibition held in Philadelphia in 1876.
Still another purpose of the Sesqui-
entennial is said to be to "create a
loser understanding and foster the
;ood will of the peoples of the world."
The President and Congress have
sanctioned the celebration, as have
'he governor and the legislature of
Pennslyvania and the Mayor and
ouncil of Philadelphia. Most of the
European and Asiatic countries as
,ell as Canada, Ceylon, and Costa
Erica, have signified .intentions of off-
ring their cooperation. New Jersey,
'ew York, Connecticut, Louisiana,
)klahoma, Kansas, and Nevada, are
;he states that have already author-
zed or constituted commissions that
will aid the Celebration.
The City Council of Philadelphia
as pledged $5,000,000 and as "much

areful survey and estimations, the
lost for the exhibition to the Associ-
tion has been placed at approximate-
y $15,000,000. A financial program Is

The exhibition will take place on
550 acres of land, part of which is on
he Parkway, and this will also extend
:nf both sides of the Schuylkill river.
[The Centennial celebration took place
n portion of the land that will be used
for this occasion. Some of the build-
ngs used in the Centennial celebration
will also furnish space for the Sesqui-
Centennial exhibition in 1926. In ad-
dition new structures will be erected
for the oc.casion. A new art museum
has been decided upon, and the com-
pletion of the new Delaware river
bridge is also expected by that time. -
In conention with the celebration
there will.. be nunteros congresses
in session; In which- leaders of world
thought will participate in discussing
vital subjects in every important field
of development. All the patriotic -
societies, the American legion, great
business associatiomis, organizations
engaged in- -hmanitarian work, fra.-
Lernities and- national and internat-
ional organizations will be invited to
hold their conventions in 1926 in or
near Philadelphia during the period
of the Exhibition.
Taking these meetings into account
and through indications of attendance
at former world's fairs approximately
200,000 paid admissions are expected
daily. This will mean a total attend-
ance of 40,000,000 people over the
whole period of the Exhibition.
STANDRDIATION SAVES
INDUSTFRIES oFrGRMANY
New York, Dec. 8-(By A.P.)-
Standardization of her industrial pro-
duction has been one of the principal
factors in preventing the collapse of
German industry, in the face of the
multitude of obstacles now confront-
ing Germany, according to Dr. P. G.
Agnew, secretary ofthe American
Engineering -Standards Committee,
who recently returned from Europe
where for two months he made a
study of the standardization movement
and the manner in which- European
developments in this direction are
likely to affect American industry.
Dr. Agnew's report, made public to-
day, says in part:
"Germany has so far succeeded in
keeping her industrial machine intact,
largely because of the elaborate scale
on which her standardization work is
carried on. German industrialists are
already counting upon standardiza-
tion as one of the chief essentials in
the revival, on a greatly increased

scale, of their industrial production
and of their foreign trade, as soon as
political ahid financial 'stability is
reached in Central Europe."

Rapids."'
As a stage play, "Queen of the Moul-
in Rouge" thrilled Broadway for over
a year. The story is one that appeals!
to the emotions.It is the love of an
American youth in an old world set-
ting; .the story of a young woman's
sacrifice of the world's respect in or-
der that her sweetheart might rise to
fame and fortune. The motif is the
bartering of a girl's good name, mak-
ing her a victim of selfish desire, to
give the world a genius.
"The Rapids" presents the fatherly
love of a lonely man for an orphan- i
ed baby girl, an awe-inspiring battle
of a man overcoming great obstacles
fighting alone a losing game for ex-
istencegagainst the greed and. avarice
of "big business."

SCIENTISTS, TO STUDY
QUAKE ZONES OF EARTH
Washington, Dec. 8-(By A.P.)--An
exhaustive study of earthquakes in
and near the American continent is
being made by the weather bureau in
cooperation with the Coast and Geo-
detic Survey, the Canadian meteorolo-
gical officials, anumber of universities
and, about 5,000 volunteer .observers.
Among the university records which
are proving of great value are those
kept by Father Tondorf, in charge of
the seismological laboratory at
Georgetown University, whose an-
nouncement that a violent earthquake
had been registered by his instru-
ments was the first news given the
world of the Japanese disaster.
William J. Humphreys, professor
of meteorological physics, has charge
of the weather bureau's work. The
purpose of the study, he said, pnimar-
ily is to determine the exact locations
