Howze Warns Opposing Counsels That
Tribunal Disfavors Continual
Disorders And Wrangling
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 3.-Opposing
counsel in the court martial trial of
Col. William Mitchell failed today to
keep the peace as ordered yesterday,
by the court president, Maj.-Gen. Rob-
ert L. Howze, and they were warnedi
again that the tribunal "viewed with
disfavor" the continued bickering and
General Howze called the attention
of counsel anew to army laws gov-
erning court procedure, and solemnly
requested "counsel for both sides" to
take notice. The warning was given
during the cross-examination of
Lieut.-Com. Charles E. Rosendahl,
senior surveying officer of the ShEn-
andoah disaster, by Rep. Frank It.
Reid of Illinois, chief defense coun-
Major Allen Cullion, assistant trial
judge advocate, had objected a few
seconds before to Mr. Reid's manner
of examining the witnesses. The de-1
fense attorney referred to what he
called his opponent's lack of compre-
hension, and added:
"Things get to your ears but they
never reach your brains."
In the confusion that followed Gen-
eral Howze ordered a three-minute re-
cess, and when the court reconvened
delivered his admonition.
Commander Rosendahl testified that'
Lieut.-Com. Zachary Lansdowne did.;
not protest against taking the Shen-
andoah on her fatal flight into the
Middle West. The reduction effected
in the automatic gas valves had noth-
ing to do with the wrecking of the
ship, he testified, and the gas escapes
functioned satisfactorily during its
last battle with the elements. These
statements were supported by Lieut.
Rowland G. Mayer, construction offi-
cer of the Shenandoah.:
Persistent efforts of the defense to
show failure of the big dirigible's gas
valves, as charged by Colonel Mitchell
in his published state:.ent, brought
no concessions frofn the two navy of-I
ficers, and when the court adjourned
tonight, Mr. Reid, was still grilling
Lieutenant Mayer. He will conclude
the cross-examination tomorrow.

! Princess Cauacizene Will Relate
H1er Exleriences In Principal
Courts Of Europe
Princess Cantacuzene, famed as a
lecturer and a writer, will speak at 8
o'clock Tuesday i Ilill auditorium
as the fifth number of the season
course of the Oratorical association.
Her subject will be: "My Life Here,
and There."
In her lecture, the princess will dis-
cuss the notable incidents of her life-
time, and in addition to giving im-
Spressions of society in New York and
Washington in the eighties and nine-
ties, will relate her experiences in
European courts.
After her marriage in 1899 to Prince
Michael Cantacuzene, head of the
famous Russian family, she was a fre-
quent visitor at the court of the Czar
where she met many notable men and
women who figured conspicuously in
the tragedies following the Bolshevik
revolution. During her recent visit to
Europe she had an opportunity to ob-
serve the striking changes that have
taken place in social life since the
close of the World war, especially in
Since the revolution in Russia, the
Princess and her family have made
their home in Washington where she
has taken an active part in various
charitable movements, notably the
Central Committee for Russian relief.
This organization has done much to
alleviate the suffering of the thou-
sands of refugees driven from Russia
by Bolshevik persecution.
Among the interesting reminiscences
of Princess Cantacuzene are memories
of her grandfather, ex-President U. S.
Grant, with whom she spent much
time in her childhood days, watching
and listening to the great people who
visited him.

Cites NecessityFor Dramatizing And
Magnifying News To Draw
Public Interest
Discussing the relation of the mod-
ern newspaper to its readers, adver-
tisers, and employes, Walter Lipp-
mann of the New York World, lec-
tured under the auspices of the Mich-
igan School of Religion, yesterday, in
Natural Science auditorium.
Mr. Lippmann revealed the relation
of the reader to newspaper as one
wherein the reader expects to receive
the journal for next to nothing, but
refuses to enter into contractural re-
lationship with the publisher. The
editor has no assurance that he will
hold his audience over a given period,
so the newspapers live by making up!
the discrepancyrthrough advertising,
endeavoring to collect a crowd and
display their clients wares.
He indicated that difficulty between
the newspaper and the merchant does
not arise through melodramatic or-~
ders to suppress specific news items.,
The influence is subtler, he continued,
arising through a similarity of view-
point, since the proprietors of papers
are usually large employers of labor
with an attitude toward labor prob-
lems like that of other employers.
Publishers of metropolitan dailes are'
men of affairs in their community, and
usually share the views of their fel-
low business men. Competition and
the differing policies of the competing
papers are the safety valves of the
metropolitan press Mr. Lippmann said.
Reader Averages 15 Minutes Daily
Investigation has indicated that the
average reader of newspapers de-
votes 15 minutes daily to the perusal
of the sheet. The speaker, in discuss-_
ing the public reception of news treat-
ing the logical interests of the people,
said the general reader is seldom in-
terested. He said that the newspapers
must lie about events to draw public
interest, magnifying possible advan-~
tages, and dramatizing.
The only ways in which editors can
emphasize such interests as the!
progress of the World court and move-
ments in international politics, and
still retain their circulation, is to have
a regular service which holds the
reader, such as sport departments,
financial reports, and advertising; or
to make an effort to give the news-
paper a personality in the community,
demanding public support. There is,
however, a definite indication that edi-
tors are stubbornly resisting any
move to submerge public affairs in
the news. There is also evidence of
an increasing respect for privacy of
the individual. Mr. Lippmann ex-~
pressed the hope that in the future
reporting of so called "sensational"
news will be so conducted as to give!
advantageous social instruction. Since
the predominance of readers are in-
terested in such news, the remedy lies
not in suppression of crime reports,
but in enlightened reporting.
Truth Telling A Problem
The telling of the truth in stories
relating to public officials is a prob-j
lem demanding attention, the speaker
said, since reporters are necessarily
in close contact with officials and do
not always wish to report facts dis-
agreeable to them.

Treating the relation of the editor'
to the news writer, Mr. Lippmann said
that on reputable papers he never
knew of a writer being forced to write
that which he did not wish.
Mr. Lippmann's lecture was the
fourth of the series arranged in con-
nection with Prof. Kirsopp Lake's
seminar in the moral issues of mod-
ern life.

Grid Mentors Relegate Other Michigan
Tackle To Second Eleven Due
To Few Games Played

CHICAGO, Dec. 3.-The 1925 all-
Conference football team, as selected
by seven of the Big Ten coaches for
The Associated Press tonight placed
four Michigan men on the first team,
with six out of seven coaches placing
Friedman at quarterback and Ooster-
baan at left-end. The two Bennies
formed a forward passing combination
responsible for a large part of Mich-
gan's heavy scoring. These two were
first and third of the leading Big Ten
scorers this year, but not once inside
the twenty yard line did Friedman call
his own signal for a scoring play.
The coaches were unanimous in
their choice of Brown of Michigan
and Lowery of Northwestern as the
outstanding centers of the "Big Ten,"
in 1925, but the majority gave Brown
first place.
Injuries Held Out Edwards
Edwards of Michigan wais the' most
frequently mentioned tackle, but in-
juries which kept him out of many
gaines this year, caused his selection
for the second team in the opinion of
most of the coaches, Henderson, Chi-
cago, being the first place tackle of
five of the seven coaches.
Kassel, Illinois, and Romey, Iowa,
were favored by most of the coaches
for end opposite Oosterbaan, with
Kassel getting the most first team
With Friedman and Grange over-
whelmingly' endorsed for the back-
field, the coaches differed greatly on
the other two positions; Lewis of
Northwestern; Fry of Iowa; McCarty
of Chicago, and Joesting of Minne-
sota, being variously placed at half-
back and fullback, on both first and
second teams. Lewis received the
most first team votes for fullback;
three coaches favoring him, while a
fourth placed him at halfback. Mc-
