LAWYERS ADISED
AGINST POITICS'
Dean Bates Talks To Senior Class
Upon Subject of "Getting
Into Practice"
COMPARES ADVANTAGES OF
LARGE AND SMALL CITIES
Lawyers should keep out of politics
was the advce given by Dean Henry
M. Bates of the law school in a talk
on "Getting into Practice" given be-
fore the senior law class yesterday
afternoon in the law building. "The
men who try to combine their law
practice with politics do not make
successes of themselves and usually
"disappear in the night", for dabbling
in politics invariably keeps them
from establishing and extensive and
stable clientele," he said.
The Dean gave further advice as
to the proper methods for getting a
also larger expenditures. One's ac-
first question that comes to a grad-
uates. mind," said the Dean, "is wheth-
er he should start practicing in a
large or small city.
Usually a xau in a larger city
mnakes a larger salary, but he has
al o larger penditures. One's ac-
cumulation of property in a'metro-
polis may be no larger than that
which one accumulates in a small
town.
A man in a smaller place has the
best chance of succeeding, but on the
other hand in a small town you have
to fight desperately hard in order
to avoid stagnation. In a larger
place a man must buckle down and
work harder, because of the greater
lure of amusements and because of
the sterner competition."
After the Dean's address, a business
meeting of the senior class was held.

The general Alumni association is

from Floor of house; Resignation
Doubtful
Washington, Jan. 28.-(By A. P.)-
A whirlwind of developments, today
1 advanced measurably the govern-
ment's plan to rid itself of the Fall of
leases.
A resolution urging the president t
institute proceedings for annullment
of both the Sinclair and Dohney con-
tracts was debated all day in the sen-
ate within indications pointing to it
j adoption tomorrow.
Another resolution, requesting the
president to call for the resignation
of Secretary Denby because of h
pare in the leasing program, and intro.
duced Senator Robinson, Arkansjas
the Democratic leader, but its consid-
eration was deferred.
. Coolidge Silent
President Coolidge, who already has
announced his purpose to prosecute
communicated with several of those
he has in mind as special counsel, but
tonight was unable to announce def-
initely who had been selected.
The house, however, passed a reso-
lution appropriating $100,000 for pros-
ecution of annullment proceedings
But a single vote was cast against it
The whole situation was talked over
at a White House conference during
the evening between the President
Chairman Lenroot of the senate oil
committee, Senatois Lodge, of Mass.
and Curtis of Kansas, the Republican
leaders.
From the sick bed of former interior.
secretary Fall, word went out that he
not only would be unable to appear_
before the oil committee tomorrow a
[plantid; but might ot be able tc
testify ftrrsome days to come.
Walsh Proposes
The resolution proposing the resig-
nation of Secretary Denby was of
fered after demands that he quite the
I abinet had been mad by Senator
Walsh, Democrat, Montana, a dominat-
ing figure in the oil inquiry, and other
Democratic senators.
A somewhat similar attack on At-
torney General Daugherty was made
V in the House by representative Garrett
of Tennessee, the Democratic leader
The impression given both at thc
White House and the Navy and justice
departments was that neither Mr. Den-
by nor Mr. Daugherty was prepared
to resign and that the President had
no present intention of asking thei
to step out of the cabinet.
A demand that Mr. Denby go before
the house Naval committee and ex-
plain his part in connection with the
leases was made by some democratic
committeemen, but the majority decid-
ed to do nothing for the present.

Detroit, Jan. 28.-(By 9. P.)-A Ca-j
nadian government order, issued fromj
Ottowa three days ago, has corked the1
flow of beer across the Detroit river
into the United States, and has re-
sulted in the accumulation of more 3
than 100,000 cases of Canadian beer at
the Petite Cote, Ontario, warehouses
This was revealed today when an
attorney representing Canadian liquor
interests departed for Ottawa in an
effort to obtain modification of the
order which in effect prohibits future
liquor shipments from Petite Cote.
The new order, which is said tc
have resulted from the recent confer-
ence between American and Canadian
officials at Ottawa, stipulates that in
as much as Petite Cote, about eight
miles west of Windsor, is not recog-4
nized officially as a port, all further
export shipments of beer and liquor
