I Fight Against Confirmation Opened
By Walsh; Expect Reed
WIl Continue
Washington, March 7.-(By A. P.)-
Proceeding in open executive session
over the protest of administration
leaders, the Senate today put up the
nomination of Charles Warren, of
Michigan, to be attorney general, but
failed to reach a vote after three
hours' discussion.
The fight against confirmation was
launched by Senator Walsh, of Mon-
tana, a Democrat on the judiciary
committee, which has twice approved
the nomination, and will be continued
1 next week by Senator Reed, Democrat,
Kansas, of the same committee, and
possibly others. Friends of Mr. War-
ren expect favorable action, however,
before the end of the week.
Mr. Warren's nomination was called
up in executive session, as required
under the rules, and Senator Reed
moved that the doors be opened. Sen-
ator Moses, Republican, New Hamp-
shire, president pro tempore, held
that since this in effect constituted a
change in Senate procedure, a two-
thirds majority would be necessary tol
carry the motion.f
Senator Reed appealed from the de-
cision and the chair was over-ruled,
39-38. The Reed motion then prevail-
ed, 46-39, with administration Repub-
licans voting almost solidly against it.
Thirty-three Democrats, tweleve Re-
publicans, and the one farmer laborer,
Shipstead, supported the motion. j

Undergraduates Are Mediocre
Thinkers, Claims Percy Marks

Seventy-five per cent of the under-
graduates of American colleges are
common place thinkers, not capable
of doing work above mediocrity," says
Percy Marks, author of "Plastic Age,"
in an article appearing in a recent
issue of "The Bookman."
"Under the grading system used in
most colleges 75 per cent of the stu-
dents receive a grade of C or below.
I know from sad experience just what
a C stands for. It stands for work
that is commonplace but accurate,
work that is without a scintilla of dis-
"Granted that most of the teaching
is bad, granted that some intelligent
undergraduates are indolent, the fact
still remains that most of them were
denied at birth the mental strength
ever to attain intellectual superiority
"The intellectual standard of our

undergraduates is low and they are
low for the good and simple reason
that God did not give even half of the
undergraduates minds capable of un-
derstanding or reaching standards
that are high."
Mr. Marks criticises the middle
Western universities for especial
laxity in maintaining standards. "I
know of one case where a student was
dropped from an Eastern college on
account of scholastic difficulties," says
Mr. Marks. "He went to a middle
Western university of a thousand stu-
dents. There he passed all his cours-
es with satisfactory grades. On the
strength of these grades he was ad-
mitted to the courses in the Colum-
bia extension school, where he repeat-
ed the courses he had passed in the
middle Western college and failed
two of them."

Haggerty, Reason, and Landre Play
Last Game With Michigan
Michigan's Varsity basketball quin-
tet closed its 1925 season by handing
the University of Chicago court five a
decisive defeat, 47-14, at Yost field
ouse last night.
The visitors uncovered a whirlwind
attack with the opening whistle and
assumed a four point lead before the
Wolverines succeeded in scoring from
the floor. Michigan counted but three
fouls in the first five minutes of play,
but successive baskets by Cherry,
Haggerty, Reason and Haggerty plac-
ed Michigan in the lead, which they
never relinquished.
Playing his last game for Michigan,
Rex Reason, substituted for Landre in
he eary part of the contest, played
he stellar offensive role for the vi-
tors. Reason scored seven goals from
the floor and five from the fifteen foot
sine for a total of 19 points, which was
more than the entire Chicago team
ccounted for.
Captain George Haggerty, also play-
ing his final court contest for Mich-
igan, was another outstanding per-
former in the team play of Maize and
Blue five. Haggerty ,garnered five
baskets and three free throws for a
total of 13 points. Joe Landre also
played his lastgame in a Michigan
Michigan was slow to start anything
that resembled an, offense, but once
Reason was injected into the fray, the
Wolverines buried the Midway five
with an avalanche of field goals. The
Maroon team started the game in fine
fashion, but once Michigan took the
ead, they seemed to lose the team co-
ordination and basket shooting that
marked the first few minutes of play.
Starting the second period with the
score 16-11 In their favor, the Wol-
Verine players scored almost at will.
Chicago scored but one field goal and
one free throw in this half; Captain
Weiss shooting a basket from the cen-
ter of the floor and Alyea counting the
lone foul. These two men stood out
for the losers, Weiss making three
baskets, although he played but a
short time in the game.
Last night's victory gives Michigan
a total of six games won, and five lost,
and practically assures the Wolverines
of fifth place in the final standing.
The hold-over contest with Purdue
will not be played off.
