Members of the Shipping Board were
for the most part in a mood little in-
clined toward a policy of wholesale
scrapping of ships tonight as they
awaited the return of Chairman
O'Connor from Detroit and Buffalo
with details of his conversation with
Henry Ford concerning his purchase
of 400 of the Board's ships. Mr.
O'Connor is expected here tomorrow.
Several commissioners expressed
themselves frankly as opposed to any
policy of scrapping, while others said
the question should be inquired into
thoroughly before any such policy
was embarked upon. President
Palmer of the Fleet corporation, indi-
cated that he thought some ships
might be scrapped since the Merchant
Marine and Naval reserve needs have
been cared for, and the belief was
general that if any of the 900 ships
tied up should be scrapped, they
would be for the most part the' 300

Cap Night Speaker





May Present New Version of League
and Reasons for Past and
Present Opposition

Herbert Freundlich, German Clhemist, I
Will Address Assemblage I
In Amphitheatre


A new version of the League of
Nations and the reason for past and
present opposition may be introduced
to the audience which Senator Wil-
liam E. Borah of Idaho, chairman of
the Foreign Relations committee, will
address at 4:10 o'clock Monday in
Hill auditorium. Acting President
Alfred H. Lloyd will introduce the
speaker who concludes the oratorical
association's program for the year.
Magazines which favored Senator
Borah's staunch denunciation of the
League have commended him as hav-
ing done as much, if not more, than
any other senator to kill the League
of nations. The Senator, although an
active opponent of the League in its
present form, does not oppose all
international conferences only those
which he regards as "political med-
dlesomeness and entanglement," in
which category he places the present
status of the League.
In- an address on the Oratorical
program a month ago, Newton D.
Baker, former secretary of war,
voicing his approbation of the
League, advocated that the United
States not only follow in the foot-
steps of the nations of the world
seeking world peace through the
me(Aini of the League, but lead them.
Mr. Baker expressed satisfaction that
the students would not only hear his
views on the League but those of
Senator Borah as well.
There will be an admission charge
of $1 to those not holding season
tickets. The Oratorical League was
forced to secure an afternoon engage-
ment, as Senator Borah was unable to
arrange an appearance at a later

Two sessions will be held at 10
o'clock this morning in the Union,
one meeting dealing with office man-

organization are open, and anyone
interested is invited to attend.
W. 11. Leffingwell, president of the
Leffingwell-Ream company of New
York city, will read a paper this
morning on the "Present State of the
Art of Office Management," follow-
ing which a discussion will be led by
two prominent management execu-
tives. The author of this paper has
examined and rated many offices,
large and small, during the past two
years, and he will show which
phases of office management he finds
of high order and which phases sus-
ceptible of improvement.
At the same time, another session
will be held in the Union, at which
L. J. Purdy, production supervisor of
the Oakland niotor car company of
Pontiac, will read a paper on "Pro-
duction Control in Automobile" Man-
ufacture." This discussion will be di-
rected by several automobile manu-
facture officials.
This afternoon a third meeting
will be held at which two papers will
be read, one on "Frequency of
Change of Model," and the other,
"Should Manufacturers Make Their
Own Accessories?." These papers will
involve two of the outstanding prob-
lems of policy in the automobile in-
dustry. Two addresses will be given
on the tendencies affecting methods
of management in the automobile in-
dustry at the session at 8 o'clock to-
night, which will be held in the
Natural Science auditorium instead
of the Union.
The final meeting of the society will
be held tomorrow morning at the
Union. In the afternoon the mem-
bers of the society and other attend-
ants at the meetings will be the
guests of the University Athletic as-
sociation, at the Michigan-Minnesota
ball game.

Union Publishes
List Of Members
Owing Payments
In an attempt to induce some of the
10,000 members of the Union who are
delinquent in paying up their life
membership dues, the Union has had
printed the entire list of names of
the subscribers who are overdue. The'
list has been posted on a large board
in the main lobby of-the building. }
The entire indebtedness of the
Union amounts to $330,000, $200,000
of which is in the form of a first
mortgage on the building. The
banks which hold this mortgage will
not renew it this year, and as it be-
comes due in August, sufficient
money must be paid in by that time
to raise the mortgage. It is with this,
in view that officials of the Union
have published the names of delin-
quent subscribers.
Since the list of names was posted
yesterday, 177 men have brought
their payments to date, and it is ex-
pected that a large number of men.
iil pay up their dues.
Beside the list of names, another
list of reasons men give for not hav
} ing paid up their dues is placed.
Some of the most quaint of these
alibis are these: "he signed but did
not think he had to pay," "he will not
pay because he does not get a life
membership for $50 when his sub-}
scription is more than 5 years past
1due," "he won't pay because the Un-
ion does not cut his hair for noth-
ing," "he is angry at the Union be-
cause he did not get football tickets
on the 50 yard line," "he won't pay
because he is not allowed to take his
dog in the dining room."
Offer Fellowships
In Social Science
Ten research assistantships in the
general field of social science are'
offered for next year by the Univer-
sity of North Carolina institute for
research in social science. The as-
sistantships are open to students who
have had one or more years of work
in a graduate school of good stand-
ing. The applicants accepted will
receive a yearly stipend of $1500 and
expenses to make a study of prob-
lems arising out of state and region-
al conditions.

toques into the huge bon fire, will be
celebrated tonight when the annual
ceremonies will be held at Sleepy Hol-

assemble on the campus at the desig-
nated places, and at 7:15 o'clock the

vious years. Signs will be posted to
indicate the seating arrangement.
Athletes who are to be awarded "M"

speaker's stand.

beginning of the ceremonies after
which Alfred B. Connable, '25, master
of ceremonies, will introduce William
D. Roesser, '25, retiring business man-
ager of The Daily, who will speak for

Following the talk by Professor
Frayer, Fielding H. Yost, Director of
Intercollegiate athletics, will award
"M" blankets to the graduating ath-
letes. Only senior athletes- who have
won two letters in one sport, and who

address from the alumni to the

sing the traditional "Where, Oh
Where Are The Verdant Freshmen?",
each class rising as the correspond-
ing verse of the song is sung.
Upon the completion of the singing
the freshmen will form in a snake
dance, and as they dance around the
fire will toss their little grey caps
into the flames, thus signifying the
passing of another freshman class
into the ranks of the sophomores.
Following the ceremonies, a free
movie will be shown in Hill auditor-
ium through the courtesy of the Ma-

showing. The doors to the auditor-
ium will open at 9 o'clock, and the'
