Foreign Graduate Students Give Views
Of Respective Countries On
World Peace Question
Emphasizing the fact that France's
solution of the present Syrian troubles
must be carried out in accordance
with her position as trustee for the
commonwealth of nations in Syria,
and not as owner, Prof. Jesse S.
Reeves, of the political science de-
partment, closed the student forum
on "Internationalism," under direction'
of the Cosmopolitan club in the Nat-
ural Science auditorium last night.
Professor Reeves pointed .out that
France's mandate, strictly outlined by
the league covenant, is intended to
lay the foundation for the future in-.
dependence of Syria.
Give World Views
Various views on internationalism,
from widely separated parts of the
world, were presented at the forum
by three foreign graduate students,
who gave the attitudes of their re-
spective countries in regard to world
Benjamin Cockram, grad, of Eng-
land stressed the unique make up of
the British empire, better called "the
British commonwealth of nations."
The varied races and countries under
the rule of Great Britain, bound to-
gether only formally, and by no strict 1
treaties, constitute, he said, "a league
of nations in themselves. From the
administration of this league we may
be able to learn much that will help
us in conducting a world-wide organi-
zation. He pointed out that the only
institution really common to all of
the dominions, to which they all have
appeal, is the judiciary committee of
the privy council, and this may be
taken as a parallel to the newly or-
ganized World court.
Alfred Pu, grad, of China, explained
the so-called "anti-foreign" movement
among the Chinese students as a
manifestation of a desire for proper
realization of Chinese nationality,
rather than opposition to foreigners.
He told of the principles of extrater-
ritoriality, foreign.control of Chinese
tariff, and the special privileges held
by foreign nations in their "conces-
sions" in Chinese treaty ports. These
elements have combined since 1840 to
prevent China from realizing its full
national entity. He stated that al-
though the great desire of Chinese
students for world peace has been
dampened by recent massacres, they
still hope for the extension of inter-
national good-will.
R. F. Howrani, grad, of Syria, out-
lined the recent history of that coun-,
try, explaining the causes of the oppo-
sition of the natives to French rule.
He pointed out that the recent trouble
has been started by Syrian bandits,
who, in attacking the French gover-
ment, followed a desire for British
rather than French - domination that
has developed throughout a half cen-
tury's history. He expressed the opin-
ion that the country would eventually
come under British rule.
Powers ConsideruQuestion
Professor Reeves commented upon
the statements of each of the preced-
ing speakers. In regard to China, he
pointed out that extra-territoriality
which provides for the trial of for-
eigners under the law of their own
countries, was originated in China as
an incentive for foreigners to estab-
lish' trade there, which was of benefit

to China.
"That the powers are considering
the question is evidenced," he said
"by the fact that a commission, ap-
pointed by the Washington conference
for the limitation of armaments, is
now investigating the advisability of
abolishing extra - territoriality it
China." He expressed the hope tha
"in balancing losses and gains," in the
settlement of world problems, "ther(
will be a substantial balance on the
credit side in favor of internationa

Setting Of "Tambourine" Affords More
Color Than Opera Has Ever
Before Attempted
Lester, creator of the 390 costumes
and gowns which will be used in the'
1925 Union opera, "Tambourine," with
the exception of those in the prologue,
which were designed by Dorothy
Stone, arrived in Ann Arbor last night'
with four assistants to personally
conduct the final fittings and review
all of his creations during the three
dress rehearsals that will be held'
this week-end preparatory to the'
opening performance at the Whitney,
theater Monday night.
Equipment Comes
The last shipment of costumes will
arrive today from Chicago. Most of
the trappings have arrived, including
the 400 pairs of shoes to be worn in
the production, and the crates of
canes, parasols, tambourines, xylo-
phones and other paraphernalia
which will be used in the various
More costumes will be used in the
opera this year than in any previous
production, 47 trunks being required
to transport the trappings while the
company is on the road, which does
not include the personal wordrobes
for each member of the cast. In the
course of the prologue and two acts
this year the women's chorus makes
12 complete changes of dress and the
men's chorus eight.
"April Day" is said to be one of the
most sparkling numbers with the
women's chorus of 24 wearing deli-
cate gowns in pastel shades of mild
, green, peacock blue, orange, lavender,
yellow, and pink. In the "Ren-
dezvous" the men, representing sol-
diers of the palace, are dressed in gay'
military uniforms of plumed hats,
gold-braided mulberry jackets with
satin-lined capes to match, brilliant
tights of orange, and high black'
patent leather boots.
Depict Holidays
Holidays of the year are depicted,
in 'Fine Feathers" by women in ap-
propriate gowns. The Valentine day
dress is of pink satin trimmed with
gold lace, and gold hearts; St. Pat-
rick's day by an emerald green gown
of silk with velvet bodice; Thanks-
giving day an orange and brown satin
dress trimmed with brown feathers;
and Christmas, a red velvet jacket
and skirt of silver lace, trimmed with
white fur.
The plot and setting .of "Tambour-
ine" afford a more colorful production
this year than the opera has ever at-
tempted. With gay gypsy costumes
predominating, even to the orchestra,4
I the presentation will be assured of a3
freshness and lustre unprecedented
in the opera's history, in the belief of
Mr. Shuter.
The first rehearsal with the entire
setting and all of the scenery will be
held this evening at the Whitney thea-
ter. Tomorrow night will bring the
initial dress rehearsal.

Says Ten Per Cent Levy On Cosmetics,

Of School Costs
(By Associated Press)
LANSING, Dec. 2.-A ten per cent
luxury tax to compel the users of cos-
metics and tobacco to pay a large part
of the state's educational bill, was
suggested by Dr. ClarencesCook Little,
President of the University of Michi-
gan, in an address before the Michi-
gan Association of Farmers' clubs
here this afternoon.
"Inevery state in the union, men
and women are spending eight or ten
times as much for powder, perfume,
rouge and tobacco as they are con-
tributing towards education, he said.
"Why should not those who can af-
ford these luxuries help provide edu-
cation for the children of those less
fortunately situated?" He estimated
that at least $2,500,000 a year could
be raised in Michigan from tP sug-
gested levy.
Dr. Little emphatically reiterated
his advocacy of limitation of students

Called Attempt To Eliminate Alleged
Inefficiency-New Board Will
Not Handle Finances
Over 700 signatures to petitions for
an amendment to the Union constitu-
tion, involving 'reorganization of the
Union with provision for increased
student power and efficiency in the
operation of the club, had been ob-
tained late last night by a group of
students which declared its purpose
to be "the bringing about of closer
contact between the administrative
boards of the Union and the actual
operation of the Union itself. The in-
crease in the student power will be
brought about by giving the only
board upon which the students now sit
with the privilege of voting, some act-
ual executive power in the adminis-
tration of the building, a power which
this board now holds in a very limited
Will Call Vote
Although the required number of
names to call a meeting for voting on
the proposed amendment have already
been secur'ed, the group fostering the
reorganization amendment will con-
tinue to circulate the petitions in or-
der to give all Union members a per
sonal explanation of the intention em-
bodied in the proposed changes.
The gist of the peitions is that the
student body will be given equal rep-
resentation, but with more weight in
the actual administration. of the
j Union.
In general the petition urges that
the Union be reorganized for the pur-
pose of "eliminating the present gross
ineffiiency." A detailed account of
the reasons advanced for the pro-
posed organization appears as fol-
"(1) That a lack of contact with thme
Union of the board having control of
financial matters, including the act-
ual running of the building results in
gross inefficiencey. By the present
constitution of the Union, the govern-
ing power of the Union is vested in
two separate boards. The board hav-
ing control of all financial matters,
'including the actual running of the
building, has six members; the only
student representative on this board
being the president. The other mem-
bers of this board, being faculty and
alumni, are not in as close contact
with the building as would seem de-
sirable for those running any business
or club. Some of them reside outside
of the city and their short monthly
meetings do not provide them with
sufficient contact with the Union. Dur-
ing the past two years this board has
} averaged one hour and six minutes a
month in the Union, eating dinner,
having friendly discourse, and,trans-
acting the financial affairs of the
Union (See minutes of board of gov-
nors, meetings 1923-'25.) During the
period of their administration the food^
department alone dropped from a
profit of $6,399.78 in 1920-'21 to a Iosa
of $1,814.91 in 1921-'22, to a loss of
$14,371.10 in 1922-'23, to a loss of $1,
400.94 in 1929-'24, to a loss of $14,-
6 628.31 in 1924-'25. The billiard de-
partment dropped abruptly from -,a
eprofit of $3,847.24 in 1920-'21 to a proft
,, of $226.28 in 1921-'22, and for the at
e year 1924-'25, a profit of $86.30 (see
c financial statements.)
e Cite Grievances
e "(2) That the present continuity
- of the board of directors be broken.
, It is thought that such a change will
bring new blood into the organization
s r from time to time, bring about a
if dynamic and growing rather than an
e established and static Union; and
- that there will be less tendency to
n lapse into the rut of routine proce-
I dureby menbers of this board.
'"(3) That the students bepemtd
more than mere nominal connection
with the Union. At present, the five
j vice-presidents, recording secretary
- and president,'are represented on a
board with merely advisory capacity,
e and this removed to the second de-
in gree.
gn "Summary:The changes will pro-
L. ;vide for matters of maintenance .and
v- repair, being in the hands of a body
I- in more intimate contact with the
u- Union. The changes will provide for

b- dents in the actual running of the
