American Markets Will Save Land
Values For Only Surplus
Can Be Exported
Detroit, Sept. 23.-(By A. P.)-The
most important question pressing
upon the American people for so.
lution is the foreign problem. The pol-
icy of a Republican administration
can solve it, former Governor Frank
0. Lowden of Illinois declared to-
night in an address before the Michi-
gan State Republican convention here.
The primary cause of the great dis-
tress among the world population he
said, is the overproduction which was
started in war times and has beenI
continued, and the next case he said,,
the deflation policies adopted by the
federal reserve board in 1920. Both
took place, he said, under a Democra-
tic administration.
Remedies proposed by the Republi-
cans, Mr. Lowden stated, include sta-
bilization of European markets and
he added that the Dawes commission
has done more to attain this end than
any other factor.
"If Europe shall entier upon a period
of prosperity and if she shall furnish
better markets for our farm products
it is due entirely to the success of
the Dawes commission initiated by a.
Republican administration.
The Democratic argument for tar-
iff revision to aid agriculture are the
same as employed in 1892, Mr. Low-
den declared, adding:
"In that year they were successful
and the farmers of America learned
as I believe for all time, that the do- Ic
mestic market for their products was
after all the best market and that they
could not prosper with other Indus-~
tries bankrupt."
"The years which followed the1
Democratic. tariff were the -hardestt
the farmer had endured forha genera-
The farmer, Mr. Lowden said, must
depend primarily upon a home mar-
k'et for his products for only the sur-
plus is taken for the foreign market.
The home markets, he added canonly
take the farmers products at re-r
munerative prices if there is gener-
al prosperity throughout the land.
This, he maintained is possible under
the Democratic tariff plan.
"If we are to prevent the further
decline of land values in America,"
he said," we have got to depend uponr
the American market for the sale of
our products."',

Nust Agree to Abide by Honor Rules;
All Classes Represented
On Council
Students of the Medical school have
virtually_ been given their complete
self-government witht regard to thel
conduct of examinations. Each stu~
dent must sign the following state-
ment printed on the registration
card: "I have read the rules for the
conduct of examinations under the
uniform honor system and hereby
agree to abide by them."
The system, as adopted by the Stu-
dent body, of the Medical school, the;
Faculty of the Medical school and the
Board of Regents, at the close of the
last school year, includes the Medical
student council, to be composed of 9
students. The council for the ensuing
year, according to the rules will be
chosen in the following way:
"One representative from the
Freshman class, elected to hold office
for two years; two from the Sopho-
more class, one to hold office for two
years, another for a one year term;
three from the Junior class, one for
a two-year term, the other two for
one year; three Seniors, each for a
one year term."
For next year and afterwards the
freshmen will elect one member who.
will serve a two-year term. The Jun-
iors will elect two, one serving a two
year term and the other a one-year
term. In this way a nucleus of three
experienced councillors will be left.
For this year one of the Seniors will
be elected for the chairmanshihp.
Thereafter the junior two-year man
will automatically become chairman
when he enters the senior class.
The council's duties are entirely ju-
dicial and are not at all concerned
with the conduct of the examinations.
The president of each class is to ap-
point an executive committee, which
will distribute, as well as purchase,
and collect the examination papers.
The executive committee also has
power to fix the seating arrangement
as it may deem necessary.-
A nominating system is also pro-
vided for by the rules which state
that the "officers of each class shall
constitute la nominating committee.
For the year 1924-25 at least two
members of the freshman class will
be nominated, while four nominees
will be chosen from the junior class,
and six from the senior class. In the
year 1925-26 two nominees will be se-
lected from each lower class and four

nominees from each upper class.

Davis Says References to Daugherty
In Campaign Speech Were
"Not Veiled"
New York, Sept. 23.-(By A. P.)-
The real enemies of the constitution
are not the Reds and Bolshevists but,
"corrupt and impotent public officials
and heir associates" John W. Davis
the Democratic presidential nominee
declared in a letter writen today to
Harry M. Daugherty in reply to thet
one sent to him by the former attorney
Expressing the belief that the real
work of this campaign is the arous-
ing of the moral sense of the Ameri-
can people, "to condemn and to con-'
ceal the betrayal of official trusts,"
.Mr. Davis wrote Mr. Daugherty that
"this issue cannot be obscured by
your forced efforts to represent the
real contest of this campaign as one
between the defenders of the consti-.
tution and those who seek to over-i
throw it udder leaders fresh from the
baptism of bolsehvism in lurid and
suffering Russia."
"If the constitution is to endure,"
Mr. Davis added "the first requisite is
that men who hold office under it
shall be honest and faithful to their
Denying Mr. Daugherty's statement]
that his allusions to the former at-
torney general during the campaign
had been "quite veiled," Mr. Davis
said they had been "most direct and
specific." He added lie had found "no
warrant whatever for withdrawing
any single one of them and then pro-
ceeded to elaborate upon them in
brunt fashion.
Brushing aside Mr. Daugherty's
statement that "Iris self respect" de-
barred himf from appearing before the
senaite Investigation conmmittee be-
cause of the malice exhibited towarda
him 'by it, Mr. Davis said it seemed to
him that under the circumstances"

falsity of the evidence would rather

Takio, Sept. 23-(By A. P. --The


Michigan's great authority on in-
ternational law, Prof J. S. Reeves of
the political science department, has
returned from Holland, where he was
one of the two official representatives
from the United States to the Acad-
emy of International Law of The
Hague. The other American repre-
sentative was Prof. Philip Marshall
Brown of Princeton University.
Professor Reeves delivered a series
of 12 lectures on "The Structure of
the International Community-The
Basis of International Law." On the
program were 27 of the most prom-
inent international lawyers in the
world, representing almost that many
countries. Professor Reeves was the
third speaker on the program. All of
the lectures were delivered in French,
which is the official language of the
Peace Palace.
There were present at the meetings
of the Academy 250 students of inter-
national law, representing 28 different
nationalities. Among these were 15
Americans, of which about ten were
from the school of foreign service at
Georgetown University, and the oth-
ers from Harvard, Yale, and Califor-

surprised to find it impossible to de-
termine a man's nationality by the
views he expressed. Every lecturer
has complete freedom of expression
and is himself responsible for the
ideas he expresses, yet no attempt
was made to sway the minds of the
other representatives by drawing con-
Professor Reeves said that one of
the finest things about the meetings
of the Academy was that they were
so arranged as to allow attendance
at the sessions of the World Court,
which, he said, are impressive and
business-like affairs. "The mass of
American poeple," he said," do not re-
alize that it is an existant thing and
is functioning right now, all the time,
and is not merely supposed to func-
tion at some distant time."
Professor Reeves had the opportun-
ity to hear a case in the court be-
tween England and Greece regard-
ing the powers of a mandatory, as
concerns the British, control of Pales-
Professor Reeves returned last
week, having spent a large part of
his leave of absence, which began
with the close of the first semester
of last year, in traveling about the
continent. He will resume his work
in the University today.
