Explorer Says He Will Use Amphibian
Planes In Explorations Despite
Criticism Of Mitchell
Crushing ice floes threatening to de-
stroy his 88 foot ship, the Bowdoin,
airplane flights over trackless arctic
wastes, and the unique life of the
eskimos were some of the, things de-
scribed by Corn. Donald B. MacMillan,
scientist, explorer, and lecturer, who
told the story of his eighth northern!
expedition last night in Hill auditor-'
ium. The trip was illuustrated by
8,000 feet of moving picture film por-
traying the scenes of the trip.
Commander MacMillan gave the
history of the unknown lands which
he set out to explore. Peary thought
he saw a great snow covered land to
the northwest in 1906, but was unable
to reach it. Eskimo legends testified
to its existence. Then in 1909, Com- I
niander MacMillan himself made tidal
observations for Peary, the results of
which indicated without a doubt that
it was there-the largest unexplored
region in the northern hemisphere, two
million square miles in area.

Student Union
Speaking to delegates of the World
Court conference last night in Natural
1 Science auditorium, Conrad Hoffman,
secretary of the International Student
service, said that the internationaliza-
tion of student unions will become a
reality in the near future and to sub-
stantiate his statements he pointed to
the conference which is scheduled for
Geneva within two months.
"The internationalization of student
unions is not far off," said Mr. Hoff-
man, "for in two months there will be
a conference in Geneva and it is most
probable that a confederation of the
student organizations of the world
will be formed at this meeting. When
this has been accomplished even
greater influence can be exerted for
the attainment of world peace."
The speaker explained some of the
racial and political antagonisms
which are being overcome by the stu-
dent international conferences and,
contacts. "Of the money raised in
this and other countries for European
student relief a great part was used in
{Russia. At one time over 30,000 Rus-
sian students were fed by kitchens
maintained by these funds," said Mr.'

"International Week" Observance Will
Continue Today With Series Of
Discussions At Union

Headquarters Will Be Maintained In,
Alumni Memorial Hall; Open DailyE
From 8 to 5:30 o'clocka
Entering the final week of itsa
Memorial fund drive, the 1926 literary
class yesterday issued a plea to its
members that those who have not yet
subscribed for the endowment insur-
ance do so this week. Headquarters
will be maintained in the general of-.
fices of the Alumni association int
Alumni Memorial hall, where policiesE
will be written from 8 to 5:30 o'clock,
daily throughout the week.(
Thus far, approximately 400 policies
have been written. The endowment
fund plan, if 1,000 members of the1
class take part in it, will make avail-
able $250,000 for the use of the Uni-
versity as a testimonial from the classE
20 years hence.
Class officials pointed out yesterday
that arrangements can be made for'
delayed payment of the first premium
in cases where students do not feel1
themselves financially able to begin
the annual payments of $10 before the!
close of the school year. Students par-1
ticipating in the endowment fund plant
will pay $10 yearly for a period of 201
years. At . that time the insurance
company will turn over to the Uni-
versity $250 on each policy written. In
the event of death, the policy oper-
ates after the manner of an ordinary
insurance policy, the company meet-
ing the $250 payment to the fund at
the end of 20 years.
All money paid to the insurance
company in the form of premiums will
be turned over the class fund at ma-
turity, even though the payments lapse

Pinchot Plan
Is Rejected
By Operators
.By Assocated Press)
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 30.-The an-
thracite operators in a letter to Gov-
ernor Pinchot late today wrote that
"it is impossible for us to find in your
proposals the basis of a sound and
lasting settlement and for the same
reasons they cannot be considered as
a basis for conference and negotia-
The letter was signed by William
W. Inglis, chairman of the anthracite
operators' negotiating committee. The
miners have already accepted the gov-
ernor's proposal of a "basis of settle-
The letter to the governor revealed
that the minersatwo weeks ago re-
jected a proposal for an immediate l
settlement offered by the operators. It
provided for an immediate return to
work at wages paid prior to the sus-
pension. It also provided for resump-
tion of negotiations for a five year
contract and arbitrations if differ-
ences are not settled within 30 days
of resumption of negotiations.
The check-off, the letter said,
"which was condemned in principal
by the Roosevelt commission in 19031
and refused by the Wilson commission
in 1920, you now suggest that we ac-
cept by another name. By any name
it is repugnant to reason and justice
and more a barripr than an aid to
sound industrial relations."
