The Week's News
In Brief
The following is a survey of
the news of the world during the
past week, compiled from the
press. An attempt has been made
to. present the news as briefly
and concisely as possible.
The United States finally decided to
participate unoffically in the repar-
&ions IAquiry. This has cheered both
French and British governments con-
siderably. The decision came only
fter France had changed materially
her original firm stand.

Washington, Dec. 13.-(By AP)-
Restoration of the delegate strengt
of southern states by the recent act-
ion of the republican national com--
mittee drew fire today from Senator
Hiram Johnson, himself a candidate
for the presidential nomination. At
the same time the restoration was de-
fended, in a statement by chirman.
John T. Adams, of the republican nat-
ional committee.
The situation thus brought about
promises a fight in the Cleelnd.
convention, and is the principal one
growing out of the recent meeting
of the national committee her'e.
Senator Johnson characterized the
comittee's action as beyond its powers
and "repugnant to every cause of fair
dealing and just representation."
Chairman Adams on the other hand
defended it as an act of "Justice to ,
congressional districts in the south r
where the democratic party reinses'
a free ballot and an honest. count to
republicans both black and white.'"
While Senator Johnson attacked ai
restoration of a penalty upon repubi
lican states and a reward for the
southern states "Iwhere there is 'no
republican party and where .dele-
gations sometimes are a farce and a ;
scandal." Chairman Adams defend-
ed it by pointing out that: the com-
mittees action only added nine dele-
gates to the southern states . quota
while It added 116 delegates as a re- 1
ward to the state which went for
President Harding in 1920.
Plans have been completed to an
Intercollegiate ball to be given Wed-
nesday, Dec. 26, at the Drake hotel, in
Chicago. The purpose of the ball is
to unite the college students residing
in the vicinity for the first of a seriesl
of social events, and to promote inter-
collegiate spirit.
A wellknown Chicago orchestra has
been engaged for the evening. Tickets
to the ball, which is informal, may be.
secured either from A. G. Spaulding,
211 South State street, or at the door.
Yost Asks 20,000
0. S. U. Game Seats
Columbus, Ohio, Dec. 13.-Athletic
director Yost, of Michigan has written
for a block of 20,000 seats for Michi-
gan fans for the annual Ohio-Michi-
gan football game here next Nov-
ember 15, it was announced todday
by University bdofcals.
Oyn October 2, 1922, the Buckeyes
and Wolverines engaged in dedicht-
ing the new Ohio stadium, played be-
fore the greatest throug that. ever
saw a football game in the middle
west-the oflicial figures showed an
attendance of around 73,000. Buck-
eye officials are hopeful that "history
will repeat itself."
It is pointed out that if Michigan
can fill its block of 20,000 seats. it
will establish a record for the Wes-
tern conference.

A treaty of "friendship, commerce,
and. consular rights"nwas completed
betwen Germany and the United
States. This marks the beginning of
a program to make over all commer-
cial treaties made before the war, in
I the light of changed conditions. Ne-
gotiations are going on at the present
time with Spain, Turkey, and a nuni-
ber of. Latin American countries. A I
number of liquor treaties similar to
the impending one between Great
Britain and the United States are al-
so contemplated.
The Senate lies helpless in a dead-
lock over the appointment of the
chairman of the interstate commerce
committee. The Senate insurgents
want to give the job to La Follette,
for it is through this committee that
much of the progressive legislation
will pass. Having the 'balance of
power, they are able to prevent the
appointment of either a republican
or a democrat.
