railroad executives will meet here for
a two day session tomorrow and Fri-
day. The men compose the commit-
tee on co-operative relations with Uni-
versities of the American Railway en -

Coming into existence as the result
of the inquiry of railroad men as to
why they are not getting UniversityI

row at 10 o'clock, Mr. W. B. Storey,
president of the Atkinson, Topeka and
Santa Fe railway, will lead a dis-
cussion dealing with the stimulation
of greater interest on the part of rail-
road officers in assisting the univer-
sities to develop the best possible
methods for the techniaci courses. A
second topic for discussion, of a bet-[
ter means of bringing to the univer-
sities the results of the executives'
deliberations will be led by Mr. H. R.

In his recent lecture in Detroit Mr
Blanchard declared that American in-
dividualism was the cause for the
'failure of the workingman in this
country to reach the prominence in.
govelrning power that the workingman
has reached in England. He further
stated that the Americans are neces-

that Mr. Coolidge would regard any1
