VOL. XXXV. No. 119






BY 40 TO 40 VOTE
Solicitor General Beck May Renain in
Charge of Justice Department
Until Next Session
Washington, D. C., March 10.-
Charles Beecher Warren of Michigan
failed to become attorney general of
the United States by a single vote
today in the Senate.
His nomination was rejected 40-40,
vice-president Dawes failing to reach
the Capitol from his hotel in time to
cast the deciding vote.
Administration leaders sought to
delay announcement of the result in
the hope that the vice-president, whoI
was rushing to the Senate in a taxi-
cab, voul arrive in time to break the
With victory in their grasp, Demo-
cratic opponents of the nomination
vigorously demanded that the roll call
be closed with the announcement of
the result, but even then Republican
leaders resorted to further strategy
in an effort to save the nomination
from defeat.
Senator Reed, Pennsylvanian, an- I
nounced that he would change his
vote from yea to nay so that he might
present a motion to reconsider the
question. That changed the final re-
stit technically to 39 for and 41
against confirmation.
As soon as Senator Reed made his
motion opponents of confirmation
countered with a motion to lay it on
the table and demanded a roll call.
That vote, too, resulted inra tie, 40-
40, but as the vice-president who could
have cast the deciding ballot, entered
the chamber, Senator Overman of
North Carolina, the only Democratic
to vote for confirmation, switched his
There was no indication tonmht
what the President's course might be,
the White House having declined to
comment on the matter. If he de-
cides not to resubmit the nomination
to the Senate at this time or make a
new one, lie may either leave solicitor
general Beck in charge of the justice
department until the next session of
Congress or make a recess appoint-
ment to fill the cabinet vacancy dur-
ing that period.
Jack Miner, naturalist, who shelters
birds and uses them to spread the
christian gospel, will speak at 4:15
o'clock and again at 8 o'clock tomor-
row in Pattengill auditorium of Ann
Arbor high school. Mr. Miner, who is
brought here by the Nature club of
the Ann Arbor public schools, will
tell 'of his personal experiences and
of observations of bird life made on
his farm near Kingsville, Ontario.
This farm constitutes of a shelter
and a feeding place for many thou-
sands of wild birds, mostly geese, dur-
ing their seasonal migration between
the North' and the South. The na-
turalist-preacher catches a great num-
ber of the birds, attaches tags to them
containing biblical quotaionsand li-
berates them so that they may fly to
all sections of the United and Canada.
Mr. Miner will exhibit fifty slides
and several thousand feet of films
showing bird life at close quarters.
Ten cents will be the admission price

for the afternoon lecture, which is
for children only. The prices in theI
evening will be 25 cents for cildren
and 50 cents for adults.

Egyptian expedition definitely estab-
lishes the tomb just discovered by the
,xpedition near the Giza pyramid as
ieing some 1700 years older than the
tomb of Tut-Ankh-amen and of a per-
iod which little has been discovered
The cable was from Alan Rowe,
:;ief assistant of the expedition, whoI
ias been working with Dr. Reisner
for three years. The expedition was
founded in 1905 and actual work be-
gan in 1909 in this district. The text
of the cable as extended by Dr. Reis-
ner is as follows:
"The new tomb reported from the
eiyacuations of Ahe Harvard-Boston
expedition at Giza pyramid is the only
important intact tomb yet found pre-

100 years up to about 3,000 B. C. The
tomb is situated about 100 metres due
east of the great pyramid of Cheops.
"On removing the top course of the
stone in the masonry blocks which
closed the door of the buried chamber,
the chamber was seen to be about 18,
feet long by 12 feet wide. Inside was
an alabaster sarcophagus intact and
on the coffin lay an elaborate woven'
gold mat with a line of incised hiero-
glyphics,, giving a name, indicating
its occupant a lady, probably a prin-
"The posts of the sarcophagus are
sheathed in gold and the floor of the
chamber is covered with vessels of
bronze and alabaster and a quantity'
of gilded wooden furniture which is
in bad condition."



Considers Situation of Students

Dr. Hayford, Northwestern Head,
Expires Without Knowsledge
Of Latest Success
Chicago, Ill., March 10.-Dr. John
Fillmore Iayford, director of the
Northwestern university college of en-
gineering died today at his Evanston
home a few hours before a colleague
had announced that the director's
measurements of the earth had been
accepted as an international stand-

Various -phases of the Near East
Relief and of the student kitchen at
Kiev were discussed by three speak-
ers at the meeting of the Chamber
,f Commerce luncheon yesterday noon.
This affair was the last to be held
under the administration of W. Hack-
ley Butler, retiring president of thel
chamber. Rev. H-erbert A. Jump, who
acted as chairman of the meeting,
paid a tribute to the work of Mr.
Butler on behalf of Ann Arbor, char-
acterizing him as a man who has
given perhaps more time and thought
to city problems than has any other
one person.
Ray Legate, who has spent four
years doing relief work among Rus-
Ian students, presented a vivid pic-
ture of the suffering and degradation
that prevails in some of the foreign
universities. "Conditions are unbe-
lievable to one who - has not lived
among the students," Mr. Legate
stated. "Eighteen percent of the stu-
dents at Kiev have already develop-
ed incurable diseases, and this !in
spite of the medical attention we have
been trying to give them. They must'
be taken out if others are to be safe."
Mr. V. P. Blaine, a Cleveland busi-
ness man, stated that 95 percent of
the money contributed actually goes
toward relief, only five perc'ent being
required for overhead expenses. He
outlined briefly the work being car-
ried on by the relief, giving as an il-
lustration of the real conditions the.
fact that 940 percent of the children
in one Armenian setlement are or-
phans. In one of the relief settle-
ments more than 14,000 chuldren have
work, he added.



Dr. Hayford has been ill since last
September when he had a stroke of
apoplexy. Yesterday it was announc-t
ed that the International {Geodetic
and Physical conference meeting int
Madrid, Spain, had accepted his mea-
surement for the length of the polar
and equatorial axis of the earth. A
year ago he was awarded the Victoria
medal by the Royal Geographic So-
ciety of Great Britain for offering
proof th-at the interior of the earth isI
solid rather than molten. He dis-
proved also the old theory of earth-
quakes being caused by pressure in
internal gases and showed that faults
and dislodgements of the earth's
crust were the impelling forces.
Professor Hayford graduated from
Cornell university in 1889 with the
degree of civil engineer. He was born
on a farm at Rouse Point, New York,
May 19, 1868. He was appointed a
member of the United States coast
and geodetic survey after leaving
Cornell. Mathematical skill won for
him recognition and he was appoint-
ed a member of the internation bound-
ary commission which established the
boundary line between the United
States and Mexico in 1892-92. He
later returned to Cornell as an in-
structor in civil engineering. He was
twice chosen delegate by the govern-
ment to the International Geodetic
conference. le was a member of the
national academy of sciences and came
to Northwestern university as head of
the school of engineering in 1909.
Baker Calls For

An Arbor Dealers Association Will
Give All Gate Receipts To
University Band
Ann Arbor's second automobile
show will be formally opened at 1
o'clock this afternoon at the Yost
field house when Mayor George E.
Lewis gives the signal for the massive
doors to be thrown open. The show
will continue every afte'rion and
evening until Saturday.
Thousands are expected to attend
the show during the four days be-
catse of the unusual display of cars
and other motorized equipment, and
also due to the fact that the entire
proceeds of the show are to be d-
rected towards the support of the Uni-
versity band. The Ann Arbor Auto-
mobile Dealers association, the organ-
ization sponsoring the show, hopes to
realize sufficient funds from the en-
terprise to pay all expenses of the
band for the current year.
The 11 members of the association
have been working steadily to make
the show a success. The band has
complete charge of the sale of tickets,
which are 50 cents each, and will re-
ceive the entire gate receipts, as the
automobile dealers are paying all ex-
penses such as decorations, exhibits,
and publicity.
More than 100 passenger cars, rang-
ing in price from $285 to $7,000, will
be on display in addition to a number
of trucks, basses, tractors, ambulances
and other motorized and commercial
vehicles. Indications are that more
than 35 manufacturers and dealers of
automobile accessories and various
types of car equipment will be repre-
sented, their products including tires,
batteries, tops, camping outflts, an4
other general accessories.
Numerous features have been ar-
ranged, such as an exhibit of some of
the work of automobile paint shops,
showing the latest painting processes
in various stages of production. Sev-
eral electrically operated cut-away
motors and chassis will be on inspec-
tion in different booths. The most re-
cent model of one popular car will
be on display for the first time in this
Another feature of the show will be
the daily concerts by the University
band. Two sections of the basketball
floor have been left as a stand upon
which the band will play every night
and Saturday afternoon. On other
afternoons, the band has arranged for
different musical organizations'to en-
tertain the spectators. Athletic stunts
will be provided by the boxing, wrest-
ling, fencing and gym teams of the
University. A refreshment booth will
also be conducted by a ladies society.
Swedish stories, glimpses of Cali-
fornia spirit, the viewpoint of the fac-
ulty and of thee students formed the
content of the entertainment at the
student faculty mixer last night at the
I Union.
Prof. Evans Holbrook of the Law
school told a number of huinorous
Swedish stories in dialect and read
several Swedish poems. B. W. Wheel-
er of the history department related
how the students of the University of
Calirirnia control many student af-
fairs entirely and explained the ma-
ner in -which the tfriendly spirit be-
tween students and faculty members
has sprung up.
Shirley Snith, secretary of the Uni
versity, talked on the relations be-
tween professors and the students
citing the late President Burton as ar
example of a man who could breal
away the barriers between the young

man attending school and the teacher
Reule Kenyon's orchestra played m
number of selections, Joseph Ellis
'26A and Charles Wolcott played
piano duet and Burton Hyde, '26M
played the Xylophone.

Suspenders of the old-fashioned
"never-slip" variety of the past are
not regaining their lost favor on the
campus here, according to managers
of State street men's furnishings
Van Boven, Cress and Thompson
! were quite positive about it. "Sus-
penders have passed into the realm
of antiquity," they declared. "We
+ don't sell 'em." Pratt and Dunn dust-
ed off the records and backed . up
their arguments. "We simply don't
sell them," was the verdict.
Guy Woolfolk was more optimistic.
"We sell two or three pair of sus-
penders a year," he said,1 "and those
are of the fancy variety, <chiefiy for
full dress use." Tinker admitted sell- I
ing a lone pair occasionally. "Sus-
penders are almost ancient history to
our firm," they stated.
Yet in spite of these evidences of
loyalty to th3 belt in the West, re-
ports come from Dartmouth that 12
pair of old-fashioned suspenders have
been sold there in a single week. They
attribute this land-office business to
the influences of Colidge's recent criti-.
cism of extra-wide and extra-long
trouse es.

Yesterday's total..... ..$350
Quota for drive........-,..$4,000
Returns from campus booths, sev-
eral fraternities, and members of the
faculty, in addition to the contribu-
tions Sunday in Ann Arbor churches,
-brought the first day of the Student
Friendship fund to a close yesterday
with $350 secured toward the total
set for the University. Three days
remain in which the student commit-


tee in charge of the drive hopes to
successfully complete the campaign.
One of the most promising indica-
tons of the opening day, committee-
men remarked, was the average con-
tribution of faculty members and fra-
ternities. The former chiefly assist-
ed of checks varying from $5 to $10,
while each fraternity donated $30, or
nore than $1 per member. If each
organization maintains this average,
a long stride will have been made
toward the success of the drive.
Offerings from the general campus
fell below expectations yesterday.
Students unaffiliated with organiza-
tions which are contributing as groups
number more than 6,000, and it was
expected that most of the support of
the fund would come from this quart-
er. Thus far, organizations have eith-
er contributed or pledged themselves
for sums which figure more than $1
per man, an average considerably
above that of general contributions
As was the case last year, the com-
mittee expects lastminut . int r es
in the total collected. Local thea ers
in the 1924 drive aided with a con-
tribution of $500, or more than 12
per cent of the quota. The Union ben-
efit dance Saturday afternoon, after
the close of the drive, is also hoped
to be of substantial assistance.
Yesterday's activities were confined
to talks before organizations and op-
eration of the campus booths. Miss
Margaret Quayle, national represent-
ative of the Student Friendhip fund,
delivered several talks before wom-
en's dormitories and other organiza-
tions, outlining the need for relief
work, and the work of the Friendship
fund relief.
Prof. G. Carl Huber of the anatomy
department and director of the an-
atomical laboratories in the medical
achool lectured on "Vesaius, the
Founder of Modern Anatomy" last
night in the west amphitheatre of the
medical building. This comprised the
third lecture on the series of Alpha
Omega Alpha, nationalhonorary med-
ical fraternity, dealing with medical
Professor Huber declared that An-
dreas Vesalius began his study of
anatomy with the dissection of dogs
and other small animals. In order to
obtain human bones for further study-
ing he was at first forced to get them
from cemeteries. He became so pro-
ficient in bone study that he was able
to identify them blindfolded.
"While, Vesalius was not the found-
er of anatomy, he introduced scientific
anatomy to the world, and was the
founder of the correct method of
study," stated Professor Huber. "He
showed that the teaching of earlier
anatomists was incorrect."
A number of lantern slides were
shown following the speech depicting
the diagrams of Vesalius and the dif-
ferent instruments used by him.
Seniors Lax In

Less than $243 was collected in

lished thus far in the collection of

"Isolating themselves with one type
of mentality" is the charge laid to
eastern schools by Dr. Ray Lyman
Wilbur, presdent of Leland Stanfprd
university in southern California, on
his recent trip to Washington and
New York. "Their fault has been
that they have gathered a group of
preparatory school feeders, which
sends them the same type of man year
after year," and he believes that na-
tional attitudes and interests as rep-
resented in western colleges will

contact with members from as many
of those groups as possible.
The situation in the East is further
complicated, Professor Berry said, by
the comparatively low grade work,
done by students prepared by private
schools. At Harvard last year very
few of the freshmen from preparatory)
schools and none of those previously
under tutors were able to make the
honor role, while one-fourth of the
students entering from the public
schools made superior grades. The
discrepancy is due, he said,, much
more to lack of interest than to in-
