uounced yesterday. To date the de-

a dictions are that it will be as great
or even exceed that of last year. .
Captain Amundsen has lectured in
dill auditorium before but his e-
cutnt attempt to reach the North Pole
by seaplane has created a great de-
matnd for his services as a lecturer.
In his previous talk here Captain
Amndsen spoke largely of his ex-
periences in discovering the South
pole and his ant-arctic explorations.
In this appearance, however, he will
tell of his narrow escape from death
when making a dash for the North
pole by air.
Exactly four weeks after the ex-
plorer and his party left Spitzbergen,
June 18, 1925, in the air flight to the
pole, they returned to that port, dur-
ing the four weeks' period no news of
any kind had been received by the

civilized world.

Navy, Ohio Games
Lead In Students'
Seat Applications
Applications for student football tick-
ets for all the home games are still
being received in large numbers at
the athletic association office. As in
the sale of the alumni tickets requests
for tickets to the Navy and Ohio State
games lead the list. The exact num-
ber of student tickets sold has not
been compiled yet, but will be ready
for publication in a few days.
According to Harry A. Tillottson of
the athletic association the sale of
tickets for the M. S. C. game is
progressing rapidly. Students are ad-
vised to file their applications for this
rame before 6:00 o'clock on Friday,
Sept. 25. All applications received
after this date will be filled regard-
less of class preference.
An organized cheering section will
be maintained this year as it was last
season. If application for extra seats
is made with a request for a position
in the cheering section, the additional
tickets will be outside this section.
Requests are also being received at
the athletic association office for tick-
ets to the out of town games. A large
proportion of the alumni section has
been sold out. Therefore, when mak-
ing applications, students are advised
to state that they desire student tick-
ets. Otherwise they will receive seats
in the alumni section rather than int
the regular student group.
For the week end of the Wiscon-
sin game a special round-trip fare of
$13.60 to Madison has been announced.
This reduction is expected to mater-
ially increase th'e number of students
making the trip._

case. lie said lie expected the court
would declare the Tennessee anti-evo-
lutlon act unconstitutional.
Ixr, Neal said h intended to ask the
court to pass the case to the heel of
the docket but inasmuch as it is
scheduled among the opening cases
he declared if his request met with
refusal the defense was ready.
Eighty-five tryouts for the 1925
Michigan band reported to Captain
W. Wilson for the initial practice held
last night in Morris hall.
Robert Campbell, faculty manager
of the band, expressed high hopes of
developing this year's tryouts into
Michigan's greatest band. He believes
that this year's band will have greater
success than in previous years due to
the fact that financial support is being
furnished by the University. Captain
Wilson will continue his policy of
limiting the band to 75 students.

OWE $4,000,000,000
Finance Minister Meets With -Kellogg
And Mellon; Ambassador
Accompanies Commission
(By the Associated Press)
Washington, Sept. 23. - Joseph H.
Caillaux, the French minister of fi-
nance, and his ten colleagues, arrived
in the capitol today, ready to open
negotiations for a funding settlement
of their nation's $4,000,000,000 debt to
the United States.
In the chill, damp atmosphere of
an early autumn afternoon the
Frenchmen stepped in their private
cars and immediately set about pre-
liminaries to the formal negotiations
into whichk they will launch at 10
o'clock tomorrow at their first meet-
ing with the American debt commis-
As the first move M. Caillaux hur-
ried to the embassy to make a formal
call to exchange greetings with Sec-
retary Kellogg at the state depart-
ment and Secretary Mellon at the
Treasury. The latter is the chairman
of the American commission and guide
of the American policy in the negotia-
tions. The French chairman was ac-
companied by Emile Daeschner, the
French ambassador who had gone to
New York to meet his countrymen
when they landed.
Other members of the delegation
were taken direct to the hotel which
will be their headquarters. They
have made arrangements to sail for
home October 3.
Washington, Sept. 23.-Here are
some of the important facts and fig-
ures of the French debt to the United
States as recorded in the files of the
The debt 'was created in 1917-1918.
Various loans being made for pur-
chase of war supplies and 0t4her war
purposes. Notes, literally, I. O. U's.
bearing the signature of the then
ambassador Jusserand and Joseph
Simon, French fiscal agent, were
given in exchange to the Treasury.
Principal of the loan is $3,340,516,-
043.72. Accrued interest as that of
last June 15 is $870,040,904.55. The
total indebtedness is $4,210,556,948.27.
The principal includes $400,00,000
representing surplus war materials
sold to France. On that amount
France has paid interest at the rate
of 5 percent, or $20,000,000 annually
since 1920.
The law under which the loans
were made fixed the interest at 5 per-
cent. In settlements made with other
debtors, that figure has been scaled
down and a similar arrangement is
probable for France.
