VOL. XXXV. No. 128





Professors I. L. EwbankJ ludges Here
And W. M. Paull At
Urbana, Ill., March 20 (By Special
Wire).-The University of Michigan
debating team tonight defeated Illinois
in the annual Mid-West triangular de-
bate. Prof. W. R. Paull, of the Uni-
Versity of Illinois, served as the sole
judge of the encounter, and decided
the win for Michigan.
Representatives from Wisconsin, up-
hlding the negative side of the ques-
tion, "Resolved that the Proposed
Child Labor Amendment to the Na-
tional Constitution should be adopted
by the United States," received the
judge's decision in the tenth annual
Mid-West debate, held last night .in
Hill auditorium. Prof. H. L. Ewbank,
of Albion college, was official judge.
Members of the winning team in-
cluded Miss Virginia North, Robert
Sher, and George Fiedler. Michigan
was represented by 1. F. Wahren-
brock, '2L, F. P. Weaver, '26, and
R. B. Fulton, '26. Dean Edmund E.
Day, of the school of business admn-
istration, was presiding officer of the
debate, substituting for Luman W.
Goodenough, of Detroit, who was un-
able to attend the contest.
The affirmative team set forth the
fundamental arguments that the his-
tory of child labor demonstrates that
the problem is not being solved, that
the states have proven incapable of
dealing with the child labor situation,
an thirdly, that the question of child
laor is a national problem and should
be settled by national legislation, as
opposed to arguments that child labor
should be controlled by the individ-
ual states
Opposed to these arguments, mem-
bers of the negative 4eam claimed that
there is no serious child labor pro-
blem, that the states ave handled the
problem successfully, and further-
more an amendment to the national
constitution is inherently undesirable.
In defense of the latter statement the
negative maintained that a federal
minimum child labor regulation would
tend to become a maximum for the
states, that it would strike a blow -at
self-government, and would be either
unnecessary or unenforceable.
The affirmative contended that there
still exists a problem of child labor
demanding solution as evinced by fig-
ures quoted from the 1920 census,
which record 480,000 children between i
the ages of 10 and 15 employed in
gainful occupations.
Furthering their contention that
state laws are inadequate, members of
the affirmative maintained that sev-
eral states have refused to protect
children under their jurisdiction and
the problem therefore becomes one of
national scope; they are citizens of
the United States. It was also affrm-
ed that without the incentive of a
minimum national regulation there
existed a danger that states, wherein
child labor laws had been enacted,
would tend to repeal or reduce these
The negative presented statistics
whereby it was stated that child labor
has decreased to the extent that, were
a federal law enforced to the maxi-
mum, only 65,000 children could pos-

sibly beaffected. And this was sup-
ple mented with additional arguments
to the effect that there has been no
substantial increase in child labor
since the repeal of the original child
labor laws.
Granting that there exists a certain
irreducible minimum of child labor
that can not be removed, as proven by
those states in which there are strin-
gent child labor regulations, the neg-
ative asked the question: "How can1
the federal government alleviate the
situation in 1925 when, under similar
eircumstances, it failed in 1920?" It
was further contended that it would
be impossible to construct a national
law that would be applicable to all
In previous forensic meetings under
the rulings of the Mid-West league,

Wisconsin debating teams on all but
three occasions. Debating on the Chi-
cago drainage project last year, Mich-
igan received the verdict at both Madi-

German Election
Ballot Outcome
Looks Doubtful
Berlin, March 20.-It is generally
believed that the initial balloting in
the presidential election on March 29
will be terminated without a choice
since seven contenders representing
at least a dozen political parties and
unattached political organizations are
listed on the official ballot.
Just what the lineup for the de-
cisive balloting schedules for April
26 will be is wholly conjectural, they
are awaiting the outcome of the pre-
liminary voting before discussing a
possible merger of the selection of a
common standard bearer for the final

Documents Sent By Admiral (leaes
to Denby Withheld in Teapot
Dome Trial
Cheyenne, Wyo., March 20.-(By A.
P.)-Taking of testimony upon which
Federal Judge T. Blake Kennedy will
decide who is entitled to the posses-
sion of Teapot Dome was ended in fed-
eral court here late today. Only clos-
ing arguments remain to be delivered
and these will begin Monday.
Tension was added to the case this
afternoon when Rear Admiral Julian
L. Latimer, judge-advocate-general of
the Navy, appeared for former secre-
tary of the navy Edwin Denby in re-
sponse to a subpoena by the defense.
He produced certificates from Secre-
taries Wilbur and Kellogg to keep
from the court record certain docu-
ments of the Navy department, said to
deal with the Navy's war plans and
the international situation.
Judge Kennedy granted the request
after consel for the defense from Rear
Admiral Latimer had argued the mat-..
ter briefly. The navy's legal counsel-.
er was excused without giving testi.
When Rear Admiral Latimer ap-
peared he was asked by defense coun-
sel if he had -produced certain records
of the Navy department as ordered
by sub poena, and he replied that he
had produced only a part of them.
Questioned as to the reason, he pro-
duced and read the statement of Sec-
retaries Kellogg and Wilbur.
The certificate of Secretary Wilbur
said that of the documents requested,
45 dispatches, 51 letters, 50 reports,
and 5 memoranda had been withheld
because they contained matter of a
confidential nature sent from Rear
Admiarl Albert Gleaves to the secre-
tary of the navy between Sept. 15, 1920,
and March 1, 121. At that time, Ad-
miral Gleaves was commander of the
Pacific fleet.

1More than 200 high school track
athletes, representing 22 schools, will
gather in Yost field house this after-
noon and tonight for the first annual
Michigan interscholastic indoor track
and field meet under the auspices of
the Athletic association. The prelim-
inaries of the meet, which is the first
of its kind ever to be held in the state,
will begin at 2:30 o'clock this after-
noon, while the finals will begin at
7:30 o'clock tonight.
The class of prep track stars in
three states will be present at today's
meet, and a number of high schools
In Michigan, Illinois, and Ohiochave
entered powerful squads. Detroit
Northwestern, Saginaw Eastern, and
Detroit Eastern promise to be the best
of the Michigan schools, while Toledo
Waite, Toledo Scott, and Austin high
of Chicago are the most likely of the
outside schools entered. Kalamazoo
Central also has a team which may
come through with enough points' to
take the title. Other state schools en-
tered in the meet are Ann Arbor, Wy-
andotte, Flint, Kalamazoo Normal, U.
of D. high, Highland Park, Detroit
Southwestern, Northern, Northeastern,
Central and Cass Tech, Niles, Battle
Creek, and Fairgrove.
Chicago Brings Stars
Austin high of Chicago will bring
a nine man team to the meet In an
attempt to beat the Michigan squads.
Frank Palumbo, Cook county mile
champion, who has been caught. in
4:49, and Antone Brown, quarter miler
who has run the distance in 55 on a
13 lap track, will be two of the surest
point getters on the team, while Chap-
man, city champion in the 50 yard
dash with a mark of 5 2-5 seconds, is
as good as anyone In Michigan inter-
scholastic circles. Wilkin, half miler,
and Holden, pole vaulter, are also
good bets for points.
The other outside schools are not
likely to make very selrious advances
at the tilte. Toledo Scott, with only
one former letter man at- the meet,
will be weaker than usual, although
the coach has entered 19 men. Scott
will be a little stronger than the other
Toledo school, and may be able to
land one of the first places.
Detroit Northwestern, with the city
title already gained this year, will
be the favored team in today's affair.
Captain James Tait, city dash cham-
pion, and Glen Carlson, a shot putter
with a mark of 45 feet 11 inches to
his credit, will make the going hard
for their competitors, while Seeger
is almost certain to take the half mile.
Widman, the best hurdler in the city
of Detroit, and Ross, a great sprinter,
should also be able to take some
points. The other Detroit schools will
enter large squads in the -hope of tak-
ing the meet, Eastern having one of
the strongest combinations. Myers
will be the best bet for the Indians
with his all around ability. Ise is a
steady performer in the high jump
and the shot put.
Other Entries
Other schools which are expected
to make strong showings in tonight's
meet are Saginaw, with Crego as its
individual star, Ann Arbor with' a half
dozen promising young athletes, and
Flint with Harrell as its star. Several
other schools which will not enter
enough men to take the title are al-
most certain to take points. Cold-
water will be one of these, Leroy
Potter of that school being- the best
miler in the state high school circles.
He has a record of 4:37 as his best
time in the event and will endeavor
to set a lower mark tonight as the
mneet record.
All winning times made in the meet
tonight will be recorded by the author-
ities, and will stand as meet records
until the next carnival is held. A
competent group of officials have been
secured 'as judges and timers, and
the prep athletes will perform under
all the atmosphere which generally
attends a' large college meet. Ted
Canty of Chicago, famous as the an-
nouncer at all Big Ten track meets,

will be on hand to keep the crowd in
The events in today's meet will be
