Experts Predict Cabinet Will Have
Difficulty in Overcoming
Upper House
Paris, April 4.-(By A. P.)-A poll
of the Senate made today by experi-
enced followers of French political af-
failrs indicated that a capital levy now
generally understood to be the 'key of
Premier Herriot's plan for the reform
of French government finances would
muster the support of fewer than one
third of the members of parliament.
For some time the cabinet has been
aware of the Senate opposition to any
radical innovation in the government's
financial policy and has, therefore,
been prepared for a severe revision of
the budget by the upper house. The
cabinet, however, relies upon the in-
fluence of the chamber which is elect-
e0 by universal suffrage to bring the
Senate to terms.
Nevertheless, the opinion of political
experts is that the cabinet will have I
difficulty overcoming the opposition
from the upper house. This situation
gave rise today to more talk of a dis-
silution of the chamber with new elec-j
tions within three months.
The final arbiter in the struggle be-
tween the French chamber and the
senate will be the president of the re-
public who was a senator himself be-
fore the election to the higher office.
In parliament President Doumergue
was regarded as a man of great cau-
tion and was classed in Premier Her-
riot's group in the upper house. If he,
approves the Senate attitude in the
present struggle, President Don-
mergue can dissolve the chamber.
Thereupon the government in power
must call for a new election within 30
days after the decree of dissolution is
Many French radicals have con-
cluded that dissolution is inevitable
:and consequently they favor a policy
that will bring about harmony while
the present government is in power so
that it may have control of the elec-
tion machinery.
Paris, April 4.-Beginning of the
Easter holidays brought a truce today
to the strike of students growing out
of the appointment of Prof. George
Scelle to the chair of international
law at the Sorbonne university. But
the students association made it clear
.that it is a truce only, and that the
students will resume their lectures
when the law school of the Sorbonne,
closed because of last Saturday's
rioting by royalists and conservative
republican students, is reopened.
They demand that Dr. Berthelemy,
dean of the law faculty, su'spended af-
ter the rioting be reinstated, and that
amnesty be granted to the students
condemned for their part in the dis-
On the last point the students have
received some satisfaction since the
only student who was sentenced to
prison without suspension of the sen-
tence was released tonight..

Griffith Claims Faculty Men
Give Athletics High Status

Donor Of 'Oil Can'I

Chicago, April 4.-Intercollegiate
athletics are now on an infinitely'
higher plane than they .were ten yearsI
'ago, and are improving, due to the
administration of faculty men who be-
lieve in the educational value of the
games, Major John L. Griffith, com-
missioner of athletics in the Western
Conference said tonight, replying toI
charges that intercollegiate sports had
become professionalized.
The charges were made by Prof. E.'
G. Mahin, a teacher of chemistry at
Purdue university, who, in a blanket
indictment of college athletics, said
that football homecoming games were

the occasion of liquor drinking de-
Major Griffith called upon Professor
Mahin to produce evidence that alum-
ni or others pay collegiate stars.
"Wild charges unsubstantiated by evi-
dence are frutal," Major Griffith said.
"Chemistry is not moral," he added,
"however, we should not condemn the
science because some persons use
their knowledge of chemistry to en-
able them to destroy property and
life. Athletics are not moral. They
may be used improperly or they may
be utilized as a means for teaching
lessons of sportsmanship, tolerance
and fair play, and in developing re-
spect for rule and order."

Friendship Drive

flichigan Coach Declares Fundamen-
tal Purpose of School Is
to "Build Men"
Milwaukee, Wis., April 4.-Coach
Fielding II. Yost, of the University of
Michigan, in his speech to the Uni-I
versity club here at noon today, de-
Glared that the "fundamental purposej
of schools is to build men and women,
to prepare them for useful service in
the community in which they may
In order to render this service,
Coach Yost continued, it is necessary
that the student have " a keen intel-
leet, a sound and enduring body, a
fundamentally sou~nd character-de-
pendable, reliable, trust-worthy and
honest-with the right attitude to
ward life and his place in society." He
pointed out that intellect alone would
be of little benefit if character, health
and endurance were neglected.
"It is true that if we are to have the
right kind of development in our uni-
versities," Coach Yost declared, "a
program for the development of all!
three of these parts of the individualI
must be provided. We do not need
fewer games and less physical exer-
cise in our schools and universities,
but for the majority we need more. I
Individuals leaving our schools must
be the products of an all-round de-
velopment; not a one-sided one." j
In closing, Coach Yost charged that
much of a student's time is spent in
loafing, drifting, gossiping, andl not
enough effort is made to grow in any
direction-mentally, physically, or
mrly. "It must be remembered,

Prof. Thomas H. Reed of the polit-'
ical science department, will present
the famous "Oil Can" at the third an-
nual Gridiron Knight's banquet Tues-
day night in the Union.

' Well-Known Symbol
Judge Clyde Webster, well known in
Detroit legal circles, has accepted the
invitation of Sigma Delta Chi, national
professional journalistic fraternity, to
address the third annual Michigan
Gridiron Knight's banquet Tuesday
night in the Union. With other men
of state prominence, Judge Webster
will give one of the feature talks of
the "razz fest."
Epitaphs have been prepared which
will be read by each one of the well
known men present, and a general
roasting over the coals is promised for
all. One of the principle numbers on
the program will be several songs by
the Midnight Sons' quartette. Ar-
rangements have also been made for
the presentation of a skit by Michigan
Mimes, several students prominent in
campus dramatics taking parts in the
Prof. Thomas 11. Reed of the polit-
ical science department, last year's re-
cipient of the famous engraved "Oil
Can," will make a formal presenta-
tion of the same well-'known symbol
to the person who has been chosen for
the honor this year. The distinction is
awarded on the basis of those verbose
qualities which lead to notoriety on
the campus.
Tha fr niro h "Eli fo"

There was a time when there were
no trees at all on the campus, when
the soil was considered so hard and
dry that none would grow. And then
came Andrew Dickson White. Leaving
the "glorious elms" of Yale, this
young professor of history who later
became president of Cornell univer-
sity, was greatly disappointed to find
here "university with no trees-such
a sharp contrast to his alma mater.
Without permission from any one,
he began planting trees within the
University enclosure, establishing sev-
eral avenues, and set out elms to over-
shadow them. Students gradually
joined him in his effort to beautify
the campus, one class after another
aided in securing trees and planting
them, and all became interested.
Then, as this great educator relates in
his autobiography, "the University au-
thorities made me 'superintendent of
the grounds,' and appropriated to my,
work the munificent sum of seventy-
five dollars a year."
Andrew Dickson White then tells
that when he visited Ann Arbor forty-
six years later, he "found one of the,
most beautiful academic groves to be'
seen in any part of the world."

'28A, will each receive prizes in the
design competition for the 6th Annual
Architects' May party decorations, it
was announced yesterday. The date
for the party has been set for May 8.
The final nlais for the decorations I
are not embodied in either of the win-
ning designs, but have been workd out
by the decorations committee. Abell's
design, while it was highly praised by
the judges, was based on the idea of
draping the ceiling of Barbour gym-
nasium with hanging folds of soft blue
cloth, and would have been too expen-
sive and difficult to build. The only
idea the committee took from Jordan's
design was his scheme for concealing
the running track by draping crepe
paper over it from the middle of the

floor. Banners in brilliant color, with
