play, show a wide range of entertain-j
Phil Diamond and his "Six of Dia-
monds" dance orchestra will open the
program, presenting the novelty ar-

has presented with great success in
recent public appearances.
The second act will be composed of
those parts of the Junior Girls' play
which were exceptionally well-receiv-

theatre. "Love Only Lives for Today,"
the song hit of the annual play, will be
given by the six leads of the cast, and
the "Little Co-ed Dancer" will be pre-
tented by Dorothy Krause and Char-;
lotte O'Brien. One of the dance hits of"
the production, "The Spanish Tango

lotte O'Brien and Williamette Harper
participating. They will be accom-
panied by Diamond and his orchestra.
Several selections will be sung by

Effort Is Made To Head Off Issues
Of Religion In Coming
Berlin, April 3, (By A. P.)--Unless
an unexperienced shift in party lines
occurs within the next 24 hours Dr.
Karl Jarres, vice-chancellor, and Dr.
Wilhelm Marx, will oppose each other
in the election for president on April
The three republican parties com-
prising the so-called Weimar coali-
tion-the centrists, the democrats, and
the social democrats-today tenta-
tively agreed to unite on Dr. Marx
and now await final sanction to their
pact from the governing board of the
democratic party, which will meet In
Berlin Sunday. The national conser-
vatlves-*bourgeois bloc wil ratify the
nomination of Dr. Jarres tomorrow.
That the forthcoming campaign is
destined to develop into bitter politi-
cal strife through the injection of
religious issues is viewed now as a
certainty. An effort to head off such
a contingency was undertaken today
through the initiative of Dr. Leicht,
leader of the Bavarian peoples party
in the Reichstag, who requested chan-
cellor Luther to convoke a conference
of all the bourgeois parties with the
purpose of effecting a political truce
through the nomination of Dr. Walter
Simmons, president of the federal su-
preme court and now acting president
of the republic, and a non-partisan
national candidate. Dr. Leicht frankly
admitted the inevitable injection of
religious bias into the campaign in
the event Dr. Marx was nominated
and vainly sought to induce the center
party to withdraw the former chancel-
lor's candidacy and accept Dr. Sim-
mons as a non-partisan standard
bearer for the bourgeois party.
Berlin, April 3, (By A. P.)-With
the re-election today. of Otto Braun to
the post of premier which lie resigned
last January, an era of circus politics
in Prussia came to a temporary close.1
The election terminates the parli-
amentary crisis which has been unique
even in the hectic run of the German
post war politics and which was orig-
inally percipitated by the German peo-
pie's party for the avowed purpose of
breaking up to the socialist-democratic
regime that had been in office in Prus-
sia since 1920.
G At the final business session of the
Sfirst annual state convention of the
high school student councils the com-
mittee on organization appointed the
following officers for the coming year:
Holland high school was appointed
president, Ann Arbor vice-president,
and Flint corresponding secretary.
Tihe apppintments were' made by
schools rather than individuals due to
scthe fact that most of the delegates
who attended the convention were
graduating seniors and would not
attend the convention next year.
Under this arrangement the high
schools will appoint their most able
students to fill these positions.

French Crisis
Foreseen Soon
By Politicians
Paris, April 3. (By A. P.)-Impar-
tial observers versed in parliamentary
affairs predicted tonight that political
events rapidly are developing towards
a crisis from which the only issue
will be dissolution of the parliament
and new elections.
The senate openly favors the stand
of Epienne Clementel, who resigned
the portfolio of minister of finance
Thursday night, in his controversy
with Premier Herriot. A great major-
ity of the senators sympathized with
the former finance minister, expressed
regret over his resignation and com-
mented on the premier's intervention
in far from complimentary terms.
Report Before Dean's Conference Here
Shows Educators Favor; Hit Use j
Of Nicotine
At the Dean of Women's conference 1
held yesterday afternoon at the Michi-
gan Union a committee concerning
smoking among college women was
read by Miss Lydia Jones, dean of
women at Ypsilanti state normal col-
lege. According to Miss Jones the
report was the result of a imeeting of
deans at Mt. Pleasant concerning the
question "what to say to the girl who,
honestly asks why she should not{
smoke." "We asked questions of phil-J
osophers, psychologists, physical edu-
cators, and people who smoke them-
selves. Some of the results follow."
From a dean of a college-"The de-,
bate on smoking is very different this
year-at the present time the dis-
cussion is not a moral issue but the
emphasis is placed on fire hazard and
A professor of home economcs com-
ments, "In 10 years smoking may be
as inevitable as ice-cream sodas or
it may be a menace; in the meantime
be on the safe side and don't smoke."
From a health official-"The literature
on the effect of tobacco is so conflict-
ing that no definite conclusion is pos-'
sible. Men smoke because they thinkI
it is the fashion which was established
by advertising of tobacco firms and1
the approval of army officers and Y.
M. C. A. heads."I

Prof. Charles H. Judd, director of
the school of education of the Univer-
sity 'of Chicago and an authority on
secondary school education, delivered
the final general address to the Mich-
igan Schoolmasters' convention last
night at Hill auditorium, speaking on
"More Intensive Work in the High
Professor Judd declared that two
characteristic motives are common to
all intensive work in high schools, the
winning of some form of social appro-
bation, and the attaining of some goal
which is immediate. Starting out with
the great extensive development of
secondary education in America, he
showed the need of more intensive
work, such as is attained in many of
the countries of Europe. "Superficial-
ity," he announced, " is the charge of
every visiting European, interested in
the problems of American education."
Several methods of obtaining inten-J
sifIed study in secondary schools,
similar to that of Europe and of Amer-
ican professional schools and of grad-
uate study, were suggested. Professor
Judd heartily endorsed the system of
high school honor societies based on
high records in scholarship as one of
the means of attaining this end.
"We must make our students feel a
definite social responsibility," he said.
"They must be shown why they are
studying the subjects that are requir-'
ed. For instance, before teaching
mathematics, the instructor should
show the student thataccuracy and
exactness' are demanded by modern
life. A student must have a goal that
is immediate and easily seen; the
half-hearted suggestion that the sub-1
ject will be needed in advanced study
years later will not inspire the stu-
dent to intensive work."


Members of the Michigan School-
masters' club and students of the Uni-
versity heard Dr. Alexander Meikle-
john former president of Amherst col-
lege, speaking on "Excellence in
Democracy" at a convocation yester-
day in Hill auditorium, denounce dull-
ness as the greatest of all sins. "The
law of taste is fundamental In a de-
mocracy," he declared, " and second
to good taste is the law of friendli-
"These two laws are contradictory,"
he pointed out. "When you try to
make things of high quality common
to the crowd, you find them in the
gutter. Crowds always seek the lower
level. We must decide now whether
to go on with our democracy, or to
create two sets of schools, one for the
favored few and the other for the
Education, Dr. Meiklejohn declared,
speaking especially to the many teach-
ers in the audience, is the greatest
need of America today. "We have not
even the shell of an educational sys-
tem at present," he declared. "We
have not yet begun to learn how to
teach. Our present idea seems to be
to send those who do not understand
subjects to make others understand
them. And the fault lies with the
American people."
Predicting that in time more than
one-half of the social income of the
nation would be devoted to education,
he stated the problem that now faces
America. ' "We are an uneducated
people trying to educate our children
--and it can't be done. We must first
educate ourselves; we must take a
hundred million people and educate
their tastes and interests."
Tracing the course of the history of
the world, Dr. Meiklejohn showed that
all systems of culture in the ?past-
Greece, Italy, France, Englald-all
were built on the exploiting 'of the
work of millions of slaves, of mem-
bers of the lower classes by a chosen
few. "America is the first to f ce the
problem of building a culture in a
democracy," he declared.
