A. E. R. Schneider, general manager

owner of the whale back freighter
Clifton was still hopeful tonight that
the vessel with 28 aboard and more
than 72shours overdue at Detroit
would show up, lake men here prac-

safety. Steamers which have been re-
quested to search for the vessel in
Lake Huron and Saginaw bay in hope
that the Clifton would be found in a
sheltered cover safe behind a pro-
tecting island have found no trace of
the Clifton tonight.

Paul Whiteman. has recently gain-
ed special fame on account of his
patronage of modern American music,
j particularly the more advanced
forms of syncopation. His concerts
last year in Aeolian and Carnegie

Antiquated Art
Presented For
Entrance Credit
Humorous bits of correspondence
helped to make the routine and irk-
some work of the officials in charge of
registration last week more bearable.
A letter was received in one of the
offices which shows that an ancient an
antiquated art is returning to its own
in one of the far western institutions
of learning. It was a letter contain-
ing the credit statement of a young
woman desiring to transfer from that
institution to this University. Listed
in this statement was a course en-
titled "Elementary Clothing" for
which three hours credit was given.
The description of this course showed
that its purpose was to teach the
members of that course the ways and
means of dressmaking. Credit for this

Speaks in Philadelphia at 160th Con-
tinental Congress Celebration
Philadelphia, Sept. 25. (By A. P.)-
Proposal for government ownership
of railroads and other public utilities
was denounced here tonight by Presi-
dent Coolidge, "as uneconomic and I
encroachments upon our rights."
Speaking at the exercises in com-
memoration of the 160th anniversary
of the meeting of the First Cotinental
I Congress, Mr. Coolidge also renewed
his assault on suggestions to limit
the power of the Supreme court and
urged that the people resist encroach-
ment of their rights and liberties
guaranteed by the constitution.
"If we wish to maintain what our
fathers here established," he declared,
F "we shall do well to leave the people
in the ownership of their property, in
control of their government, and up
der the protection of their courts."
Predicts Tax Loss
"It is difficult," the president said,
referring to government ownership of
railroads," to reconsile the American
ideal of a sovereign people capable
of owning and managing their own
government, with inability to own ant
manage their own business. r
"Furthermore" he declared, "it
would mean a loss in public revenue
estimated at $600,000,000 a year with
a resulting increase in the tax on
farmers of from three to 40 per cent.
Mr. Coolidge devoted most of his
address to a discussion of the early
history of the country, 'and the birth
of the constitution after the organiza-
tion of the First Continental Congress..
Defends Constitution
Referring to the deliberations of
this Congress, the President asserted
that, "if we could better understand
what they said and did to establish
our free institutions, 'we should be
le< ,likey tta be mislead by the mis-
representations and distorted argu-
ments of the hour and be far better
equipped to maintain them."
He drew a lesson from the declara-
tion of the Congress as showing "the
superority of moderation and candor
over violence and deceit in seeking a
solution of difficult public questions."
"The constitutions, "Mr. Coolidge
pointed out" is a devise for maintain-
ing in perpetuity the rights of the
people with the alternate extinction
of all privileged classes."
T9 RH 0 T. C, STAFF'
Michigan's R. O. T. C. unit, under
the supervision of Major W. T. Car-
penter, is ready to renew its activi-
ties and from present indications this
year's enrollment will surpass that of
any previous year. To last year's
staff will be added two new officers,
Capt. L. M. Bricker and 1st Iieut. A.
T. Schlosberg.
The personnel of the unit will be
made up of four departments, th
coast artillery corps, signal corps,
infantry and ordnance department.
The band, under the direction of
Wilfred Wilson, director of the Uni-
versity band, will again form part of
the unit.
Full information as to enrollment
'and transfer from other units can

Faint, but insistent, the rumor has
spread about the campus that this
year's crop of feminine beauty far
'surpasses the standard set by other
years. Impossible as it may seem, on
every hand came the query, " Iave
you seen her? Boy, some bim!"
To ascertain whether this unheard
of improvement was merely another
myth, soon to be relegated to the for-
gotten past, along with the Union
swimming pool and other dreams, or
an established fact -this was the
problem. The first man encountered
in the search for inside information
was the great memory expert, Rail-
road Jack.
"Are the girls getting prettier?"
asked Jack. "Well, there was one
queen. Cleopatra, born 68 B. C., was
born beaiutiful, but faded in her last
years, due' to her life of dissipation.
She was the wife of Mark Antony and
had * * * *" And he was off in a
cloud of smoke, with all the oratori-
cal flourishes of the finished mem-
ory expert.
Realizing that these queens of
Michigan were far too young to in-
terest Jack, the search was carried'
farther. A flower shop in the Arcade
was investigated, for beautiful ladies
get beautiful flowers, thus furnishing
a barometer on feminine pulchritude.
Sure enough-"More sales than ever
before," was the verdict. "We have
gotten in five shipments of roses,
totthing 2000 flowers, as compared
with three at this time last ye3ar." I
That the boys at home are missing
these youthful proteges seems to be
indicated by the fact that post office
officials unofficially report a larger
volume of mail, while Western Union
refused to even divulge the secret of
how many telegrams arrive a day!
In a last effort to determine the
truth, a pianist much in demand at
sorority teas was located, and his
opinion sought. And the answer was
"Yep, on the whole they're better,"
was the verdict. "Some real beauties
have been frequenting these sorority
wrestling matches. "But,"-in a con-
f I d e n tial whisper-"a lot of 1 st
year's are still with us!"
Lansing Alumni To Form Club Night
Before M. A. C. Game; Muskegon I
To Hold Outing
Three alumni clubs in different
parts of the country are planning
activities for the near future, rang-
ing from a week-end of duck hunting
to an organization meeting. The Uni-
versity of Michigan club of Muskegon
is staging the week-end outing Oct.
3 and 4, while Lansing alumni plan
to form a club, Oct 10, the night be-
fore the M. A. C.-Michigan game at
East Lansing.I
W. S. Foster, '02L, is in charge of
the arrangements at Lansing. It is1
hoped that all alumni and students
visiting in Lansing that night will at-'
tend the meeting. The entire club of
Michigan men will attend the game
the. following day, a block of seats
having been reserved in the Michigan
A hunting lodge on Blue Lake camp
has been reserved by the Muskegon
club for 80 men to participate in the
outing. In addition to duck hunting
there will be games provided, 'while
a pep meeting is planned following
the dinner Saturday.l
The University of Michigan club of
Elmira, New York, is also planning
a gathering in the next few days. This
will take the form of a combined
banquet with the Cornell alumni club
of Elmira. It will be held at the Cold

Brook Country club.
In addition there will be a ball game
in the afternoon between representa-
tives of the two Universities. It is the
hope of the alumni of the two schools
that their alma maters will meet on
the gridiron by next fall. They are
working also for additional resump.
tion of relations in athletics between
the two schools.

Geneva, Sept. 25.-(By A. P.-In-
dications that the far eastern coun-
tries, especially China and Japan
would st, nd together in insisting on
all of their rights before the League
of Nations was furnished by tonight'sj
session of the League. Japan came
out squarely in favor of granting
Cirina a seat on the council in the!
league as a great Asiatic party,. thus
giving expression to Jpo-Chinese
Persia also backed China's insist-
ence that the great geographical di-
visions of the world, the principalt
races and the chief sources of wealth
should all be recognized in the dis-
tribution of council seats and urged
China be given a seat because Asia
is the largest continent in the world,
containing half the human race.
Through the unanimous adoption
of a resolution favoring the location
of seats on the basis of geographical
division, it would seem likely that the
p r e sent number of non-prominent
seats, which is 6, would be increased
so as to include China and perhaps
some other countries.
Higher standards for pharmacists
and in pharmaceutical training were
emphasized at the annual convocation

meeting and asked for a greater co-j
operation between the students and
faculty in raising the standards ofr
the pharmacy college.
Members of the faculty spoke on
different departments of the school,
and the importance of the new sys-
tems which were inaugurated during
the last year. Intelligence tests will
be given to all students entering the
college for the first time.
