Europeans Appreciate Student
Funds, Says Australian Soldier




Agreements Which W1Ui Supplement
Those Already Made Are
Washington, D. C., March 24.-1
President Coolidge's plans with re-

"I am heartily in favor of. the Stu-
dent Friendship fund, and am thor-
oughly convinced that all efforts in
the behalf of the students of Europe
are really appreciated," declared Tom
Skeyhill, Australian soldier and world
traveler, when asked his opinion of
the fund yesterday.
tDespite what has been said to the
contrary, I feel certain that the stu-
dentsofEurope suffer no loss of dig-
nity or loss of self respect by accept-
ing aid from their fellow students in
other lands. Conditions are such that
the students, especially in Russia and
Poland, are willing to accept anything
as long as they are allowed to retain
their ideals and get an education so
that they may fut*ther them. " Mr

as one of our foremost authorities on
that country.
Continuing his discussion of stu-
dent conditions in Russia and Poland,
he talked at length of the terrible
hardships that these men undergo to
secure educations. Many of them
sleep out of doors in the streets and
in doorways during weather that is
far below zero, he said, and are con-
tent as long as they are allowed to
retain their idealism.
More than anything else, Mr. Skey-
hill believes, these students want the
right to be skeptical, the right to
doubt. They believe that there is
something wrong with' their present
systems of government, and they want
the opportunity to study them so that
they may find their weaknesses.
"And because they realize the pres-
ent weaknesses of their government,
these far-away students do not ex-
pect their countries to materially aid
them in attending the universities.
They regard foreign aid more or less
as loans to their governments," Mr.
Skeyhill believes.

'FOR swims SUNDAY1
Following Interscholastic Swimming
Meet Saturday; New Tank Will
Be Opened to Members
I Following the interscholastic swim-
ming meet which is to be held in the
new Union pool next Saturday after-
noon and in which 110 entries have
been received, the tank will be open- I
ed for the use of members of the
Union at 9 o'clock Sunday morning.
This will mark the official opening of
the tank, after which the pool will be
available for swimming every day1
from 9 o'clock in the morning to 11
o'clock at night.
Certain rules will be enforced in
the operation of the pool to which' all
men using the tank will be required
to conform. As the person enters the
pool room, he will make out a writ-
ten application for a locker and file!
s this with his Union membership card
with the clerk at the desk. A mem-
bership card is absolutely necessary
to receive a locker and be permitted
to swim in the pool. After finishing
his swim, the person wlil receive his
card from the clerk again.
Drawers have been provided for
valuables and watches, money and
other valuable articles may be depos-
ited with the clerk who will place
them in these safety drawers. The
price of a swim, $.25, will be collected
before a locker ?will be assigned.
I Tickets from the books sold during
I the recent pool campaign will be ac-
cepted in payment for the swim. There
are a number of these books of tick-
ets left and they may be purchased
at the main desk in the lobby. i
There has been provided 100 lock-
ers and the number of peopfe swim-
ming in the pool at one time will be
limited to this number. Every swim-
mer will be required to take a show-,
er before entering the pool and at-
tendants will be in charge to see that
this. rule is enforced. No clothing
of any kind will be permitted to be
worn by anyone swimming in the
tank. There will be life guards sta-
tioned in the pool during the open4
hours and these men all have certifi-
cates as life savers.
Like the other parts of the building,
the tank will be for the use of mem-
bers of the Union only and a member-
ship card is the only means of being
permitted to swim.

Present Frontiers Would Be Assured,
British Secretary of Foreign
Affairs Claims
London, March 24.-(By A. P.)--
Austen Chamberlain, secretary for
foreign affairs, informed the British
parliament and the rest of the world
tonight that Great Britain will have
nothing further to do with' the wreck-
age of the Geneva protocol but will
seek to build permanent peace for
Europe on another foundation-a mu-
tual pact between Germany and her
late allied enemies. This pact would
guarantee the present frontier of
western Europe against change and
in it, Germany would renounce all
idea of ever going to war to bring
about alteration in her eastern bord-
ers as they were fixed after the last
With the pact Mr. Chamberlain en-
visages Germany's admission to the
League of Nations, with full fledged
{ membership in the council of that or-
ganization. This vision based on.
Germany's recent proposals will not
bear fruit, Mr. Chamberlain thought
unless Great Britain and the neigh-
boring nations across the channel
"can deal successfully and expedi-
tiously with the remaining obligations
of disarmament and the evacuation of
the Cologne area."
Since the war, no less than during
it, Mr. Chamnberlain asserted Europe
has been in two camps with fear
haunting the councils of every na-
tion, and the home of every continent-
al people. If this continues, sooner
or later Europe would be marching
to a new Armageddon, but in the new
proposal for a pact in which Ger-
many and her late enemies would
make mutual guarantees, he saw 'th''
possible dawn of a better day.
Favors fer the 1925 Military Ball
which have been selected by the com-
mittee will be different from those of
previous years. A letter opener in the
form of a small, heavily silvered
plated saber about eight inches in
length will be given to each ticket
holder. On one side of the saber
will be stamped "U of M. Military
Ball-1925." A small maize and blue
ribbon is tied through the hilt.
A limited number of these, however,
are still available and will be dis-
tributed to faculty members and the
student body from 1 to 5 o'clock this
afternoon, March 25 in the Union. Ap-
plicatioits should be- filled in and
mailed with a stamped, self addressed
envelope to Ralph Graichen, '25E,
416 Benjamin street, chairman of the
ticket committee.
Two high school basketball teams
will arrive in Ann Arbor this after-
noon in preparation for the Class B
and Class C state interscholastic bas-

ketball tourneys to be held here this
weekend. Lake Linden and Harbor
Springs will be the teams to arrive
today while the remaining entries in
the two tournaments will arrive to-
morrow morning. There will be two
games in each class tournament to-
morrow night while the other rounds
will be held Friday and Saturday, the
final games being scheduled for 5
C o'clock Saturday afternoon.
Two new entries in each of the two
ournamens have been received by
the authorities in charge. Alma and
Hart are the two new entries in Class
I B while Carson City and St. James,
of Bay City, are the additional en-
tries in Class C.
This year's tournament promises to
be one of the closest in the history
of the affair according to Kenneth
Seick, '25, who is in charge of the
arrangements. A number of teams in
the tourney will have met before dur-
I ing the regular season and their en-
counters in the race for the state title
will be more interesting and hard
I fought than otherwise.
