Germans Seek Permanent Peace
Says Chancellor In Conference



(By Associated Press)
LOCARNO, Switzerland, Oct. 7.--
Not only peace now, but peace for ail
time is Germany's desire, the German
chancellor, Dr. Luther, informed M.
Briand, the French foreign minister,
today in a private consultation of the
two statesmen. The consultation
stands out as the biggest single event
since the opening of the security con-
The two leaders stole quietly away,
from Loca-rno, and meeting at a se-
cluded spot on the north shore of
lake Maggiore, had a frank talk.or.
Europe's problems as a whole and
especially how best to consolidate the
peace of Europe.
The meeting of the conciliation
marked by an expression of the de-
termination of both statesmen to do
everything humanly possible to ban-
ish the Franco-German war spector
has injected a new ray of optimism
into the political atmosphere despite
the fact that it did not result in the
fashfoning of a formula whereby
France can guarantee in a special

way the territorial integrity of Poland
land Czecho-Slovakia, her allies.
That problem will require a con-
sultation of the cabinet at Paris and
Berlin, for France and Germany wilh
find it difficult yielding from their
original position without the support
of their home governments and home
The conference itself, which mfrt
for only an hour today, achieved no
substantial progress. The spokesmen
of the various delegations admitte l
this but they qualified it with thc'
declaration that fresh suggestions
were forthcoming concerning the il-'
cessity of a clear cut understanding
that compulsory arbitration must be
the guiding principle of the Rhine
Compulsory arbitration is a feature of
the Geneva peace protocol the funda-.
mental principles of which the French
are eager to keep to the fore inflex-
ibly and which many other nations a
the recent League assembly also ap-
proved as the only sure safeguard of
world peace.

I "Since by university ruling, F

lowed to own or operate auto-

Raymond L. Alexander, '27L; Lyman

man, '27L; Are Those Named
Names of the Cambridge debate
team which will meet the University
of Michigan trio in a debate in Hill
auditorium, Thursday, Oct. 29, have
been submitted to Prof. Thomas C.
Trueblood, of the public speaking de-!
partment. They are Michael Ramsey,
Geoffrey Lloyd, and Patrick Devlin.
All three men have taken, an especi-
ally active part in practical politics.
Raymond L. Alexander, '27L, Ly-
man J. Glasgow, '26, and Elmer Salz-
man, '27L, have been chosen to rep,,
resent Michigan in the debate. The
men selected have taken an active in-
terest in public speaking throughout
their college career, and have repre-
sented Michigan as varsity debaters
in previous contests.
The subject as previously announc-
ed will be: "Resolved: That This
House Pities Its Grandchildren." The
proposition is such that a variety of
subject matter can be injected into
the debate and a tinge of humor can
be added without reducing the effec-
tiveness of the speakers. Issues will
be decided upon at a later date.
The debate is being held under the
auspices of the Oratorical association.

Philadelpl ia Selecied For Next Year's
Convention; Paris Chosen For
1927 MeetingI
(By Associated Press)
Omaha, Oct. 7.-Behind scenes the
American Legion's national conven-
tion was a seething cauldron of poli-
tics and policy today.
In the open session which was per-
functory but for a last minute objec-
tion which sent the report of the
world peace committee to the resolu-
tions committee for amendment.
The only business perfected was
selection of Philadelphia for the 19261
convention and the awarding of the
1927 meeting to Paris. The remain-
der of the time was devoted to ad-
dresses by army and navy officers and
messages, from the American Red
Cross and Knight of Columbus.
The aeronautical committee, theI
Legion's first such body, fought heat-1
edly all day over whether to recom-
mend endorsement of Col. Mitchell's
caustic critique of the nation's aerial
defense. A resolution in which
Mitchell's name was not mentioned al-
though one point he has urged, reor-
ganization of the pational defense
under one cabinet officer with sub-
divisions of equal importance for land,
sea, and air was finally adopted. It
was the product of the pen of Reed
Landis, America's second war ace and
son of Kenesaw Mountain Landis. It
was on that point that the all day
fight was centered. No other change
was made in the proposed resolution
as drawn last Monday.
The committee's action did .not dis-
pose of the Mitchell matter which
from the first day of the legionnaire's
gathering has been a subject of para-
mount interest.
The concessions of the Mitchellites
seems to be that not all that Colonel
Mitchell has said should be recom-
mended, but that hie should be praised
by name for bringing to the Ameri-I
