Alne31ust be Conipetent to
Interpret Co eat
(8y Associated Press)
LOCARNO, Switzerland, Oct. 12.-
The "gentleman's ,agreement" con-
c-rning the conditions of Germany's
entry into the League of Nations is a
collective statement which will be
signed by Great B]ritain, France, Italy,
and Belgium. By its terns Germany
agrees to join the League on the un-
derstanding that the League of Na-
tions alone is competent to interpret
the League covenant.
However, the powers signatory to
the agreement, all of which are repre-
sented in the council, informed Ger-
many in effect that in their opinion
the League of Nations cannot ask
from member states military, eco-
nomic, or financial contributions in
case of war which would be incom-
patible with their capacities.
Chancellor Luther and] Foreign Min-
ister Streseman promised the Allies
to give a definite answer to the
League question tomorrow after con-
sultation with Berlin, but they de-
parted with the assurance that it
would be acceptable.
In a meeting of the Allied and Ger-
man ministers tonight France an-
nounced that she wanted the right
automatically to intervene in case of
a flagrant violation of the integrity
of Germany's eastern frontier, but, as
a protection to Germany was ready
to submit doubtful cases of aggression
against IPoland and Czecho-Slovakia
to the League of Nations. If Germany
refused to submit the difficulty to the
League, then France would have the
right immediately to help her eastern
Students Appear I
In Winter Outfits
Fur coats and galoshes have made
their appearance on the campus dur-
ing the las: few days with the sud-
den attack of cold weather and strong
winds. Sweaters, heavy overcoats,
freshman toques and scarfs are also
very much in vogue.
The most severe part of the cold
spell came during the football game
Saturday. Throughout the afternoon
tl1 sun oppeared only for short in-
tervals to be followed by dark cloudy
periods and flakes of snow. Yesterday
afternoon the cold moderated and a
few drops of rain fell.1
Passageway Made
Safe By Screen
A screen has been constructed over
the narrow passageway between ni-
- rsil y and Angell hals for the proi
tection of students from articles
which are dropped out of the wi-
lows o the two buildings. The com-
.nittee en lbuildings had contemplated
d the work for some time, but the idea
was not put into effect until last week.
Considrable rubbish had dropped
out of the uvindows to hit students
who happened to be in the passage-
way. To avoid possible injuries from
heavy aricles, the committee decided
to have a screen put up.

"'Engaged"was revived in New York
this spring by The Stagers, and
quickly became cne of the hits of the
season. The play, which wasgiven
unusually enthusiastic praise by the
critics, is a parody of the 'typical
sentimental Victorian melodrama.
With this in mind, Mr. Shuter has
directed the action to bring out all
the mock-heroic comedy of the scenes.
Settings have been specially de-
signed for the production by Robert
Woods, '28, and executed by the
Mimes workshop, while incidental mu-
sic will be furnished by a trio under
the direction of Joseph Ellis, '26.1
Costumes have also been ordered
from Chicago.
The play will be repeated tomor-
row evening as well, and rboth per-
formances are open to women as well
as men. ; The curtain will rise prompt-
ly at 8:30 both nights.

Resolutions Invalid
"It is moved that the iarticle, ap-
>earing in The Daily on Saturday
'elative to the adoption of resolutions
>y the executive council at its meet-
ng on Friday, be denied as to its
alidity," the minutes of the board of
lirectors' meeting read, "in that a
urely, unofficial body passed said
-esolutions, the board of directors
laving taken no action thereon."
Previous to the framing of the fore-
;oing motion at the meeting Saturday,
damns was definitely told by the fac-
tlty members pr sent that the execu-
ive council has no authority whatso-
ver to form and adopt resolutions,
nd that its power is restricted to
recommendations only. The execu-
ive council is comprised of the chair-
nen of the various Union committees,
iow numbering thirteen, though orig-
nally only five, and the president.
The resolutions passed by thecoun-
il and declared to be invalid by the
lirectors were: that no women stu-
Lents shall be allowed in the swim-
ning pool, that free swimming les-
ons shall be given student members
by Matt Mann, Varsity swimming
coach, that the coupon swimming
books shall be valid until Dec. 1, that
supper dances be inaugurated after
the three remaining home football
games, that an interfraternity orches-
tra tournament be conducted by the
Union, and that an orchestra be pro-
vided for the tap room.
Those who attended the directors
meeting were Dean Henry 11. .Dates
of the Law school; Dean Joseph A.
Bursley, dean of students; Prof.
Henry C. Anderson of the engineering
cllege; Paul Buckley, assistant sec-
rotary of the University; Wilfred B.

association; Richard Barton, '26, re-
cording secretary of the Union; and
Theboard of directors, according to
the constitution and house rules of
the Union, has fullpower tor;super
vise and contre all the activities of
the Union; the board of governors,
says the constitution, "shall have full
control over all financial matters re-
lating to the Union"; the executive
council is not referred to in the con-
stitution and by-laws.
Appointments not Approved, Claim
In discussing the action of the exec-
utive council at its initial meeting
last week, Barton said yesterday that
the council not only usurped its pow-
er by forming and adopting the sev-
eral resolutions, but that it had no
right to meet nor has it any official
status because of the fact th'at the
names of several of its members, com-
mittee chairmen, as named by Adams
last Thursday, had not been approved
by the appointment committee. "The
names of Karl Crawford, '27, as chair-
man of the reception committee;
Lawrence Buell, '27, as chairman of
the entertainment committee; and El-
liott Chamberlain, '27, as chairman of
the life membership committee, were
the only selections which received the
approval of the appointment commit-
tee," stated Barton, "none of the
'other chairmen, nor any of the as-
sistants, named by Adams, having
been approved by the committee."
