Loneiheur Named Minister Of Finance;
Painleve Selected Chief Of
War Department
(By Associated Press)
PARIS, Nov. 27.-Repeated attempts
to constitute a cabinet with the Pain-
leve resigned almost a week ago have
at last met with success, and the
names of the ministers probably will
be made known officially tomorrow.
Aristide Briand already accustomed
to the duties of premier, having served'
in that office a number of times, heads
the cabinet. For the second time with-
in a week he was requested yesterday
by President Doumergue to form a
ministry and tonight he announced
that he had been successful and that
the new cabinet virtually was com-
louclieur Named
Louis Loucheur has been named
minister of finance, but there seemed
to be doubt tonight as to whether he
would accept the portfolio. TIs min-
istry according to opinion is the only
cog, lacking in the new government
machine, although it was admitted
that there might be last minute
changes in the list of ministers as
made- public tonight at the semi-
official Havas agency. A few of the
list follows: Premier and minister of
foreign affairs, M. Briand; minister of
finance, M. Loucheur; minister of
war, Paul Painleve.
PARIS, Nov. 27.-Aristide Briand
today suceeded in his second effort to
recruit a cabinet to take the place
of that of Paul Painleve, which re
signed last Sunday when the Cham-1
ber of Deputies gave him an adverse
vote'fn connection with his financial
rehabilitation plan.
The demise of the famous left car-
tel, which appears this time really to
be dead, it is considered, greatly facil-
itate M. Briand's task. This unnatural
coalition of Socialists and Radicals,
formed purely for the purposes of the
elections last year, has since domi-
nated French politics. It was Pdlled
by the Socialists, who overreached
themselves in the demands made on
Edouard Herriot, when he was en-
deavoring to form a new ministry and
forced the Radicals who were most
attached to the idea of a cartel, to the
belief that it was no longer possible
to work with the Socialists.{
The scope of M. Briand's choice of
men for portfolios thus has been con-
siderably widenW,' and it is believed
that he will be able to pick a team
strong, not only in individual talent,
but in parliamentary backing. Louis
Loucheur is spoken of as minister of
finance and Paul Doumer as minister
of the budget.
M. Briand plans to appear in par-
liament within three days and get a
vote of confidence so that he will be
able to go to London Dec. 1 and sign
the Locarno treaties.

LONDON, Nov. 27.-Winter, reach-
ing out an icy hand, laid a tribute
on the bier of 'the gentle Alexandra,
England's Queen Mother, today, cov-
ering her casket with a fleecy blan-
ket of snow as it was trundled on
a gun carriage from the Chapel
Royal in St. James palace, to West-
minster Abbey, where the simplest
of funeral services were held.
Thus the sea king's daughter de-
parted from the capital of her
'adopted empire as she had entered
it, for the snow was also falling on
that distant day, 62 years ago, when
she came from Denmark to be the
bride of Edward VII.
Close behind the casket, walking
alone and with bowed head, came
lher son, the King of England, muf-
fled in a greatcoat and wearing the
plumed hat of a field marshal. His
garments, too, received a coating
of the white flakes before the proces-
sion had gone far.
Abreast this solitary figure came
the monarchs of Belgium, Norway, and
'Denmark, and back of them the
Prince of Wales and his brothers, and

the crown princes of Rumania, Swed-
en, Denmark, Norway and Belgium,
with Lord I4ascelles and other nobles
who have married into the royal
Under gray coats these royal fig-
ures wore the dress uniforms of the
ranks they hold, either in the army
or navy of Great Britain, but of the
uniforms only the gold-braided hats
relieved the austere shades of the
funeral procession. There was but a
single other spot of color-Alexan-
dra's Own Royal standard, with which
the casket was draped.
At the boom of the gun marking 11
o'clock the casket was brought from
the chapel and placed on the same
gun carriage used at the funerals
of Quenn Victoria and Edward VII.
The equerries of her majesty took

their places on the carriage, and at!
a word of command the escorting
companies of guards fell into step;
King George emerged from the pal-
ace and the procession began its
measured march through the Mall,
Trafalgar Square and Whitehall.

Discussion Groups Will Be Led Byl
Six Members Of The Facultyj
Of The University{
For the first time in the history of
the state, students will convene to
discuss and register their opinion on
a political issue when the state inter-,
collegiate World court conference
meets here, next Monday and Tues-
day, Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. "To voice
student opinion on international ques-
tions affecting the United States, with
particular discussion on the World
court", is the purpose of the confer-
ence as announced by the committee
in charge of the arrangements.
Plan Two Day Program
The two day program includes
speeches by men of national promi-
nence and discussion groups led by
six members of the faculty of the
University. Ex-Gov. William E. Sweet,.
of Colorado, Conrad Hoffman, execu-
tive secretary of the European Stu-
dent relief; Frederick Snyder, national
secretary of the Y. M. C. A. will be the
principal speakers on the program.
"America and the World Court: A
reply to Senator Borah" is the sub-
ject of ex-Governor Sweet's address
to be given next Tuesday night in Hill
auditorium. The meeting, which will
be open to the public, is to be one
of the principal events of "InternaI
tional Week" as well as of the con-
ference. Governor Sweet is one of a
number of prominent citizens now
touring the United States with a view
to arousing public interest in the
question to a point where it will de-
mand favorable action in Congress,
when that body convenes next month.
History Of Speaker
Governor Sweet rose to national
prominence through his notable suc-
cess as governor of Colorado. Prior,
to that time he had been head of a
firm of investment bankers in Denver,
retiring from that position in 1920 to
devote his time to politics. He has
long been an advocate of American
participation in the World court and
in the League of Nations, and his
speeches and writings in behalf of
these organizations have brought him
world wide reputation.
Attendance at the conference is re-
stricted to delegates from the various
colleges of the state, representatives
of college newspapers and members
of college student councils, unions

reaped victory today in their fight
for parliamentary ratification of the1
Locarno treaties and German entryt
into the League o. Nations. By a
final vote of 291 to 174, the Reichstag

the arrangement whereby Germanymis

Parliamentary sanction came after
a stubborn partisan battle lasting sixj
weeks. The outcome was never reallyr
in doubt but the chancellor and for-
eign secretary were confronted by un-

The security pact and the treaties
were ratified by a separate vote 300
to 174 while the question of joining
