Morrison and Osborn will represent
the lower branch and Senator Treutt-

ate. The House gave the University
$1,300,000 for a museum and land and
the Senate added $500,000 for an
architectural building and site. The
House this afternoon passed Senator1
Penney's bill increasing the annualj
mill tax appropriation for the Uni-
versity to $3,500,000. Indications
were that this measure also will go
to the conference as the Senate prev-
iously passed it giving the University
$3,700,000 next year and $3,800,000
the following year. The present law
limits the mill tax appropriation to
$3,000,000 a year. Representative
Charles Sink told the House that he

college was advanced $160,000 to

Senator Pearson introduced a bill
and secured its passage in the Sen-
ate, providing for the cancellation of

The second day's session of the
eighteenth annual convention of the
Misssisippi Valley Historical associa-
tion will be held at 10 o'clock today
in the William L. Clements' library.
The meeting will be opened by a wel-
coming address by Randolph G.
Adams, custodian of the library; and
Prof. C. H. Van Tyne of the history
department will preside.
Prof. Louis C. Karpinski of the
mathematics department will be the

the history department will give a

been completed for the presentation'
of the motion picture, "The Last

auspices of the Ann Arbor branch of
the American Association of Univer-

also sponsored the Paul Whiteman
concert, the Clavilux, and Mrs. Rich-

Geneva., April 30.-Any attempt at
the coming international conference
on the control of the trade in arms
and ammunition to define extensive
zones where the importation is pro-
hibited or greatly restricted, promises
to bring a clash with Ethiopia. This
country has sent a strong note to the
League of Nations upholding her
need of arms to protect herself and
maintain order, and in any case the
Ethopian government demands the
right to air its views before the
League council
This is one of the most delicate
problems the conference will have
before it, for Persia also is likely to
protest if anything approaching the
terms of the St. Germaine convention
is passed. The St. Germaine treaty,
which the United States rejected, pro-
posed that arms be admitted only un-
der license into the greater part of
Africa, Trans-causasio, Persia, the
Arabian peninsula and European
Turkey as constituted before the war.

Organizes For Next Year at Meeting;
President Chosen; Board
Names Manager
At a brief business meeting of the
Varsity Glee Club held last night at
the Union, the club organized itself
for the coming year and later turned
to discuss the Spring Serenade andy
the other appearances which it will
make within the next few weeks. Offi-
cers for the year were elected, and
it was announced that the Board in
Control had chosen Kurt J. Krem-s
lick, '26, to succeed Carl Schoon-
macher. '25, as manager of the club.
Kremlick, who began his work for the
club as a sophomore, has held the po-
sition of assistant manager during
the past year. After the meeting
last night he left for the Third Bi-
ennial Intercollegiate Conference on
Student Activities which is being held
May 1 and 2 at Cornell university;
Kremlick represents musical organ-
izations of the University at this con-
D. Neil Reid, '26, was re-elected
president of the club last night, while
Lucian Lane, '26, was chosen as the
club member to act on the Board in
Control; John W. Bean, grad., was re-
tained as secretary for another year,
and Otto C. Koch, '27, was elected
as librarian.
After the elections, Mr. Theodore
Harrison of the School of Music, who
returned this year to Michigan in or-
der to direct the Glee Club once more,
gave a talk, thanking the mten for
their cooperation during the year,
and incidentally mentioning that this
organization was the best with -which
he had ever worked.
A date was set for the Spring Sere-
nade. Next Tuesday, May 5, the club
will make the rounds of the sororl-
ties and league houses on the campus,
serenading each group of girls with a
few selections, according to an old
custom on the canpus.
It was also announced that the
club would sing one or two numbers
at Swing Out, which will be held
next Thursday in Hill auditorium.
The program will be 'announced later.
Since the band concert which was
planned for last night had to be
called off on account of rain, the
Freshman Glee Club will make its
campus debut at the concert next
Wednesday night.

Suggestion Is Made Following Largest
Sale of Vessels Concluded by
Shipping Board
Washington, April 30.-A plan to
put the American Merchant Fleet "on
a fighting basis with foreign compe-
tition" by paying a monthly wage
bonus to American sailors out of the
Treasury, was announced yesterday
by Chairman T. V. O'Connor of the
Shipping Board after a conference
with President Coolidge.
Mr. O'Connor said he would urge it
upon Congress as the major part of
a program for building up the mer-
chant marine. The statement was said
to have been made with the knowl-
edge of President Coolidge, but it was
not indicated whether the views rep-
resented those of the Chief Executive.
"I favor legislation," Mr. O'Connor
said, "which will provide for the es-
tablishment of a merchant marine
reserve whereby the Government
would pay to American seamen en-
listed in the reserve, and who serve on
American vessels, a monthly retainer.
This retainer, %esides insuring
Americans on American vesels, will
act as an aid to American ship own-
ers by absorbing the wage differen-
tial between American and foreign
wages, and this will tend to promote
the transfer of the Government es-
sels to private hands for operation.
Mr. O'Connor made known his pur-
pose just as soon as the Shipping
Board had concluded the largest
single sale of ships it has ever made
that of the five president-type pass-
enger-cargo vessels of the California-
Orient line to the Dollar interest.
The total payment involved is $6,-
625,000, which covers the ships, ser-
vice and tra 1 of the line with
a guarantee Sels Inust be

Mr. O'Connor suggested a maxi-
mum of 15,000 reservists and said
that expenditure of less, than $2,000,-
000 by the Treasury would be re-
quired for the first year, and "not
more than $6,000,00.0, approximately,
would be needed to maintain this re-
serve when the maximum number of
vessels are in private hands.

1 Inauguration
Berlin, April 30-President-elect
Von Hindenburg has let it be known
that he is opposed to all pomp and
demonstrative military display in
connection with his forthcoming in-
auguration, and even prefers to dis-
pense with his prerogative as com-
mander-in-chief of the German army
on this occasion. This is taken to
mean that he will insist on taking the
oath of office in civilian dress in the
setting provided by the federal lcdn-
stitution, which prescribes a brief
formula for the oath in the presence
of the assembled Reichstag.
