fering "to jnigration Problems
of World
Geneva, ept. 26 (By A. P.)-A
somewhat delicate situation has arisen
in the peace discussion at Geneva
growing out of a proposed amendment
to the proctol of arbitration offered
by the Japanese. This in effect called
upon the council of the League of
Nations to endeavor to conciliate and
mediate in disputes between countries
even if the world court of justice had
ruled that the dispute had risen over
mtters which were solely within the
domestic jurisriction of the state in-
The situation is delicate because all
tote delegates interpret the Japanese
amendment which was subsequently
withdrawn as referring to the problem
of immigration and hence especialy
interesting to such countries as the
United States, Canada, Australia, and
New Zaeland,
In withdrawing the amendment M.
Adach, ;the Japanese minister to Bel-f
guu said that in consequence of the
fttitude of the disarmament commis-
sion he would have to make expresst
reservations concerning the whole off
the proctiO f arbitration and securty
which Is now being:drafted.
A private meeting of several of the
delegates including the Japanese, Was
called foar late tonight in an endeavor
to reach a campromise satisfactory to
the Japanese.

New York,'Septt 26.-American dol-,
lar bills are being taken out of Euro-t
pean vaults and shipped back to this
bountry at the rate of $5,000,000 a
month, indicating restored confidence
in various European currencies. The
peak of consumption of American dol-
lars bills by Europe was reached in3
the latter part of 1923.
Shipments were principally to Ger-1
many, Russia and adjoining countries,

then suffering from currency depre-
ciation. Those who possessed dollar
bills stored them away while marks,
rubles, and other currency daily
shrank in value. The American dollar
bill was known to be worth its face

Capital Punishment-Yes Or No?
Waite Views Question Sanely

Are you in favor of capital punish-
Prof. J. B. Waite of the Law school
treated that question, which has .been
rudely observed during the last few
months, from several angles in an
interview last night.
"To have a competent understand-
ing of the situation," said Professor
Waite, "let us go. back to the origin
of capital punishment. In ancient
times when a person committed mur-
der, or equally heinous crime, justice
was meted out in summary fashion.
Some friend or relative of the mur-
dered person took it upon himself to
see that the criminal paid with his
life as a penalty for his crime.
This system, however, was unsatis-
factory because it entailed in numer-
ous instances a serious loss of life in
as much as such affairs often de-
veloped into fueds in which a number
of people lost their lives. The rulers,

in order to conserve their man power,
instituted courts in which the mur-
derer and the friend or relative of
the deceased could .settle their dif-
ferences. The participants in such
an affair were not denied the plea-
sure of a fight; the parties concern-
ed fought the affair to its conclusion.
This method is associated with one
of the three cardinal theories of capi-
tal punishment-the theory of re-
"The death penalty as a means of
deterring further crimes comprises
the second theory of capital punish-
ment. There are many proponents
of this theory who believe that capi-
tal punishment is a means of instill-
ing such fear into the hearts of the
criminal class that crimes will be
materially lessened.
"But," continued Professor Waite,
"I am not in favor of capital punish-

Refusal To Give Evidence Results in
Contempt of Court Charge Against
H. S. Osler
Tornto, Ont., Sept. 26.-H. S. Osler,
an attorney, and an officer of the
Continental Trading company will ap-
pear before the Ontario supreme court
tomorrow to show cause why the,
should not be committed to jail for
contempt of court for his refusal to-
day to testify concerning the relation-
ship of various Americans involved
in the Teapot Dome. oil investigation
After Osler had refused to give evi-
dence before U. S. Counsel Shantz,
or to appear in court in response to
an order from Justice Wright, the
motIon for commitment for contempt
was made.
According .to The Toronto Tele-
graph the trading company was form-
ed on the same day that it took over
contracts between the Sinclair com-
paniesaandthe Humphries Texas com-S
pany, and the Humphries Mexico comn-!
pany in 1921.
The contempt action resulted from
an affidavit filed yesterday by ex-
senator Atlee Pomerene and Owen Ro-
berts, special federal counsel named
by Pres. Coolidge, preparatory to the
taking of testimony in regard to the
alleged possession by A. B. Fall, form-
ed secretary of the interior, of liberty

Lake Huron Freighter Missing Since
Sunday With 28 Men; Last Seen
Off Mackinaw
Cleveland, Ohio, Sept. 26. (By A. P.)
-Hope for the safety of the whale
back freighter Clifton and her crew
of 28 has vanished. Her whereabouts
tonight were known only to Lake
Huron, where it is believed she sunk
during the storm Sunday land Monday,
and like many other lake mysteries
the secret may never be known.
Two hydroplanes were sent out
from Mount Clemens to parol the east
and west shores of Lake Huron, of-
ficials of the Progress Steamship
company, Cleveland, owners of the
vessel, announced but late tonight. No
word from them has been received
neither have they heard from the com-
mander of the tug 1Vanistique which
was sent out from Port Huron to
search the Canadian side for tracesj
of the vessel nor from the numerous I
beach patrols.
aNumnerous steamers which ply Lake
Huron had been requested to keep a
watch for the missing vessel. The
only report received from them were
that neither the vessel nor any
wreckage had been sighted.
The Clifton left Sturgeon bay Sat-
urdjay loaded with stone. She was due
at the quarry Monday. The only defi-
nite information since her departure
was that she -passed Mackinaw Sun-*
day morning several hours before a
56 mile gale swept Lake Huron.
The following message was received
by A. E. R. Schneider, general mana-
ger of the Progress Steamship com-
pany, from the master of the steamer
Callender which passed Mackinaw at
5:20 p. m. today.
'We hauled up in the bay close to
Port Austin, thence we went to Char-
ity island, thence over towards Tawas.
We steared east northeast on the
course back to the Thunder bay

Gains Noted in Graduate, Law, Dental,
Education, and Nurses Training
Late registrations of persons who
continue to appear after the closing
of the official registration period on
Monday has increased the total en-
rollment figures in all colleges of the
University to 8,892 students. This total
shows an increase of 40 students over
the registration figures of last year
at this time.
It is estimated that the total enroll-
ment of the University for the year,
including extramural registration and
the registration of the summer school,
will be approximately 12,000. The final
count last year was 12,291.
Although the number of late regis-
trants has been unusually heavy this
week, registration officials predict
that enrollment will gradually fall
off as the students unable to return
earlier will stop enrolling. There have
ben more than 350 students in al
colleges who have registered since the
closing of the official regitration
period Monday night.
The literary college which has a
gain of 10 at the closing of the enroll-
ment period Monday night over the
figures of the same time last year,
now has only 4,883 as compared to
4,893 at this same time a year ago.
A decrease of 120 is shown in the
total enrollment of 1,616 in the Col-
leges of Engineering and Architecture
over the registration figures of 1,738
last year. The decrease in this school
is larger than that of any other col-
lege in the University.
The figures in the medical college
show a decrease of 66 over those ot
last year at this time. There are 530
students enrolled in this school. It is
expected that this figure will be in-
creased by the return of students who
are taking state board examination
during this week. Arrangements have
been made for the late registration of
such students. Registrationtinthe
College of Pharmacy, which totals 72,
shows the slight decrease of 2 over
last year's enrollment.
Gains are to be noted in the enroll-
ment of the graduate, law, dental, edu-
cation, and nurses training school for
the year 1924-1925. The greatest gain
in enrollment is in the graduatl
school which reports a total enroll-
ment of 418 showing a gain of 123 stu-
dents. The school of Education has
a total enrollment of 292, showing a
gain of 61. The enrollment of the Law
school is 509 which shows a gain of
57. The dental college with a regis-
tration of 351 has a gain of 2, while
the Nurses Training school, which has
211 students enrolled, shows a gain
of 7.
-The new Business Administration
school has 20 students enrolled. This
does not mean that these are the only
students taking business administra-
tion work, for 105 students enrolled
in other colleges are taking the com-
bined business administration course.
The official total will not be com-
piled until about October 15.
In order that freshmen at the Uni-
versitynmay have the benefit of the
experience of the upperclassmen with

regards to choice of studies, activitiesI
and athletic training, the Student
Christian association has made ar-
rangenents for the organization of a
series of discussion groups to be held
at all hours for a period of six or
eight weeks, according to a recent
statement by Perry M. Hayden, '25,'
president. The actual organization of
this work will be carried on by George
L. Likert, '27, chairman of the new
students' committee of the associa-
The plans, which are only tentative
{ as yet, include the arranging of
groups of six or seven freshmen in
charge of one upperclassman, a senior
chosen for his experience in student
activities as well as for his complete
understanding of the problems which
{ daily face those not familiar with life
J here at the University.
All freshmen who are interested in
becoming members of these groups are
asked to meet at Lane Hall Thursday
night, where definite arrangements
will be explained to them, and the

Female Students
Hold Oldest And
Youngest Record
When it comes to the record for
the oldest and the youngest students
enrolled in the University this semes-
ter, it takes the women to make it.
Sister Mary Cecilia Williams of Mt.
Mercy Academy of Grand Rapids, who
is nearing her sixtieth birthday, is the
oldest while Cynthia Mallory, daugh-
ter of Prof, Herbert S. Mallory of the
department of rhetoric, is the young-
est at the age of thirteen.
If one were to believe the records
in the office of the graduate school,
there is one student who was born but
two days ago, on Sept. 24, 1924. Three
years before his birth he received the
degree of Bachelor of science, while
two years lago he was awarded the de-
gree of master of science.
In the number of years spent in
studying at the University, Mrs. Harry
11. Jewell of Grand Rapids who en-
rolled here thirty-two years ago holds
the record. Laura Austin Dickinson or
Amherst, Mass., the only other stu-
dent over the half century mark, has
entered the University at the age of
fifty-four, thirty years after receiving
her bachelor of arts degree from Mt.
Holyoke college.
Eight graduate students are ignor-
ing the fact that theydare betwen the
ages of forty-five and fifty and are
going back to school. They are: Har-
riette Harlan Stoneman and Mrs. Har-
riet F. Randolph, 49; Edwin Ernest
Crampton and Carl S. Oakman, 48;
Irvin Webster Smith, 47; Mrs. L.
Waterman and Menno Otterbein, 46,
and Carl Hayes Griffey, 45.
About ten others have passed the
forty-year mile stone while over
twenty-fiveaare between the ages of
thirty-five and forty.
Urges Higher Standards for Colleges
of Pharmacy Throughout
Dr. A. B. Stevens, dean of the phar-
mady school from 1917-1919, spoke on
"Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Train-
ing" at the annual convocation of the
College of Pharmacy which was held
Thursday night in the Chemistry
building. -
Tracing the development of pharm-
aceutical training, Dr. Stevens pointed
out the increasing requirements of the
pharmacy schools throughout the
country, and the need for raising the
standards even higher. He mentioned
the importance of the pharmacy
school of this University in sending
out so many pharmacists who are now
holding responsible positions on the
staffs of other colleges of pharmacy.
Dr. Stevens emphasized the import-
ance of the retail pharmacist of the!
"corner pharmacy" and appealed to
the students who will be griaduating
during the next few years not to neg-
lect this important field. It is in this
field in which the pharmacist has the
greatest opportunity of serving the
In pointing out the evolution of the
retail pharmacy, Dr. Stevens showed
that it isanecessary for a pharmacist to
be well acquainted with first aid, agr-
culture, diseases, and to be able to
answer all information which is ask-
ed at the "corner drugstore."

Celebrating the opening of ,the new
Physics building, the American Phy-
sical society will hold its regular
T h a n k s g iving meeting here on,
November 28 and 29. Sixty or more
papers will be read by leading physic-
ists of the eastern and middle west-
ern states. A number of these will
be presented by members of the
Physics staff of this university.
The American Physical society
meets four times a year and the
Thanksgiving meeting is usually held
at Chicago. Only once before has the
meeting been held out of that city.
The other meetings are held in New
York, Washington, and wherever the
American Society for the Advance-
ment of Science meets. The Ameri-
can Physical society has nearly 2,000
members and of these between 150
and 200 are expected at the Andm
