Knute Lomberg-Holm Interested
In Doings Of American Youth

Knute Lomberg-Holm, appointed to
the faculty of the architectural col-
lege by the Board of Regents on Fri-
day, is finding the University of Mich-
igan an interesting and pleasant place
although he has never attended an
American college himself, having
graduated from the University of Co-
penhagen in Denmark. This year
marks his first experience in the field
of teaching but he expects to like it
for it will give him a further oppor-
tunity of becoming acquainted .with
the American youth.
Mr. Lomberg-Holm has lived in
Europe until a year ago when he ac-
cepted a position with the Detroit-
Edison company in the city of De-
troit. This practical experience in
an architectural office has tended to
make Mr. Lomberg-Holm familar with
American customs and methods. In
the few weeks that he has been in
rAnn Arbor, Mr. Lomberg-Holm says
he can see a great difference between ;
the young people of this country and

those of Europe. In Germany, for inn-
stance, the students are prematurely
old and lack the carefree and happy
air of the Americans. This state of
mind of the college students in Eu-
rope is attributed to the events of the
World War.
After graduating from the art acad-
emy of the University of Copenhagen,
Knute Lomberg-Holm entered the pro-
fessional field of architecture in Den-
mark. It was during this time that he
engineered the construction of a large
ship yard in Denmark. Mr. Lomberg-
Ho.m then decided to take further
training in architecture in Germany.
While in Germany he competed in the
Bauhaus exhibition at Weimar.
This exhibition is an old Saxon
school which has been converted into
a strictly modern college of architec-
ture. On its faculty are some of the
world's greatest painters and sculp-
tures. From Germany, Mr. Lomberg-,
Holm came to Detroit to work with the;

Set Disarmament Conference Date For
June 15, 1925; All
Nations Invited
Geneva, Sept. 27. (By A. P.)-The
disarmament commission of the
League of Nations iassembly tonight
adopted the Benes report on the draft
protocol which,, will define the
League's powers in case of war.
The commission also decided that
a world-wide conference for disarma-
ment will be held June 15, 1925. All
nations, whether they be mem-
bers of the League or not, will be in-
vited to this conference. If, however,
by May 1, 1925, a majority of the na-
tions who are regular members of the
league, together with at least ten
other nations leave not signified their.
agreement to attend, the conference
will not be held.
The Japanese objection to the arbi-
tration clause go over until the Sun-
day morning session of the jurisdic-
tional committee. There is little hope
that the Japanese position will be
changed, according to the impression
conveyed by Viscount Ishii to the
various delegates, tonight.

In a letter to Dr. M. L. Burton,
president of the University of Michi-
gan, Edwin R. Meiss, '23, former,
president of the local chapter of Zeta
Beta Tau to which Richard Loeb,
self confessed murderdx of Robert
Franks,-belonged while attending
school here, charges that newspaper
accounts of the testimony of him-
self and several fraternity brothers
at the trial were "grossly garbled."
Meiss was head of the local chap-
ter while Loeb was in school, and his
time on the stand was spent largely
in speaking of drinking at the chap-
ter house. His letter reads: "As is
usual in such unfortunate circum-
stances the newspapers seem to be
seeking that which is spectacular
rather than that which is true. I 1
regret very much that certain syndi-
cated articles have. accredited to my
associates and myself statements
concerning widespread drinking in
Ann Arbor. These reports are fig-

ments of the imagination of writers
who evidently forget the penalty they
are inflicting upon the University and
upon individuals, in their desire for
a 'good story.'
"On the contrary, our testimony in
connection with the drinking center-
ed largely upon the fact that the exe-
cutive committee of our fraternity
had fined Loeb heavily when he was
found guilty of the offense, and in
his senior year persuaded him to
swear off drinking for a period of
six months. It was pointed out that
Loeb's two years at Michigan in all
probability were the cleanest in his
life. These facts, however, were not
spectacular enough to find space in
the newspapers. Through the deliber-
ate suppression of certain parts of
the testimony, reporters, managed, to
weave light and facetious fiction, and
the public's eyes have been blinded

Room numbers in the new Literary
building have been so arranged that
no changes will be necessary when
the remainder of the building is add-
ed. The floors are numbered by the
thousands, while the wings are num-
bered by the hundreds, . making it
possible for the additions yet to be
built to each have a distinctive num-
ber in addition to the floor number.
The first floor, or the one which
is entered from the main portico in
front, is numbered starting with one
thousand, and the second floor rooms
in the two thousands. The ground
floor on the other hand has a key
number of zero thousands.
As for the wings, the hundreds fig-
ure to the right of the main entrance
or in the South wing is zero, as room
1009 or 1025. To the left or in the
north wing, the hundreds figure is
two, as room 1209 or 1223. The same
applies to the second and third floors.
The top of the building on the out-
side is being lighted up nightly by
large searchlights playing on the
white stone-work. This idea is taken
from the Capitol in Washington,
where nightly huge lights shine on
the dome.

Washington, Sept. 27. (By A. P.)-
An investigation into margins and
profits of terminal grain middlemen
was instituted today by the federal
trade commission.
The investigation was instituted at
the request of the Illinois Agricultural
association and will cover the last
four crop years, especial attention be-
ing given to the wheat crop.
The inquiry, the commission an-
nounced, will be stprted immediately
at Chicago, to be carried on later at
other centers.
The basis of the request, it was
explained, is the desire of the farmers
of the country to have the most recent
information regarding athe margins
and profits of the middlemen in ter-
minal markets, especially in view of
the movement for farmers cooperative
organizations in this business.
M. Clemenceau Is

Paris, Sept 27.(By A. P.)-M.
Clemenceau will celebrate his eighty-
third birthday tomorrow in his Ven-
dean retreat in the village St. Ther-
mine. The "grand old man of France"
appeared as sprightly as ever but he
declines to discuss political questions.
Recently the aged statesman was
visited by a number of journalists who
unsuccessfully endeavored to obtain
his opinion on current events. "The
Tiger" maintained a stuborn silence
about the subjects upon which the
newspapermen were most inquisitive.
One reported insisted on cross exami-

later was working in his garden.

Howls of Campus
Canines Displaced
By Winsome Girls
Where are the campus Adogs, the
boisterous canines on every size,
breed, and degree of animal beauty,;
whose happy squeals used to be
heard, loud and clear, above the
mere human vocal expression of the
average lecturer? To be sure, there
are many leftt, but not the horde
which used to infest the campus di-
agonal and cavort in front of the li-
Wherever they are, t~ey are missed.
Students can no longer spend a
pleasant lecture hour watching the
pups through the back windows of
the Natural S c I e nce auditorium.
Classes are no longer interrupted by
the sudden, and, of course, accidental
entrance of several proud members
of dog, kingdom. Squirrels are get-
ting fat, lacking the exercise of dodg-
ing innumerable curs each day. Pro-
fessors can tread the diagonal with
dignity, unhampered by the possibil-
ity of a racing canine hurtling be-
tween their legs.
Every effect has its cause, and the
lack of dogs is undoubtedly due to a
lack of interest in dogdom by mas-
culine owners. So the student of
psychology simply ferrets out the
reason for less masculine interest in
dogs-and behold, the answer is
Not long ago, it was discovered
that Michigan's girls are improving
greatly in regard to the winsomeness
referred to by President Burton. And
why bother with dogs when feminine
pulchritude is roaming the campus?
The question is settled-our once
famous Michigan dogs have migrafed
to other parts, driven away by lack
of attention, and an epidemic of beau-
tiful girls is with us.
Lovell Assumes
Newsboy's Role;
To Lecture Soon
Noted and renowned over the whole
of Ann Arbor for his works which
have uncovered amazing material
concerning evolution, :Dr. Thomas
Lovell, whose degrees are too numer-
ous to mention in this space, has
taken up the selling of newspapers as
a diversion. In an interview with
Doctor Lovell he asserted this new
interest is bringing him a very liberal
return for the mental labor which he
expends. He added that his sale for

Friends of Doctor Lovell's, who
have been disappointed so far by not
receiving any of his regular calls, will
not have long to wait in vain, for the
Doctor will soon start on another of
his extended lecture tours. For the
benefit of those who have not been;
thus visited it might be well to tell
something of these visits.
The Doctor, well loaded down with
his books, pictures of himself, and
copies of his finest poetry, goes from
one house to another reciting, lec
uring, and even singing to the audi
ences which gather. At times he car-
ries high grade shoe strings along on
these expeditions to leave behind as
everlasting mementos of himself. For
the benefit of thos whom Doctor
Lovell misses in his house to house

stump speeches about the vicinity of
the campus.
