Will Have Deans Consider A Monthly!
Afternoon Convocation For
All Students-
Increased authority for the student
government of the University and
complete power to decide all cases of
student discipline which are now con-
sidered by the Administrative board
of the University was requested by
the Student council last night, in two']
petitions addressed to the Senate
Committee on Student Affairs. The
committee will pass on the council's
requests at its meeting either tomor-
row or Monday.
T e hfirst petition, which was unani-
mou ly adopted by the council, asks
that the three students who are now i
invited to attend meetings of the Sen-w
ate Committee on Student Affairs be1
allowed to vote and exercise authorityo
equal to that of the faculty members
of the committee. The petition also e
requests that the three students who c
are at present merely invited to listen w
to meetings of the Discipline commit-
tee of the University be granted au-
thority equal to that of the facultym
members of that group.!t
Seek Disciplinary Power w
The second petition, also addressed
to the Senate Committee on Student
Affairs, asks that the Student council!
be given complete contrdl of all dis-
ciplinary cases coming before the Ad-C
ministrative board .of the University, 1
except those now handled by the honor(
councils of the engineering and Medi- "
cal schools. Favorable action on thisr
petition will place action in all cases
of cheating on examinations and simi-
lar infractions of University rules Ij

extent which it is capable of reaching,s
and which it will reach if the powerst
requested in the petitions are grantedc
by the University officials.f
Request Monthly Convocation n
At its meeting last night, the coun-e
cil also addressed a request, to be
considered at the next meeting of theC
deans of the University, asking that a
monthly convocation of all students
be held at Hill auditorium, at 11
o'clock, on a different day of the week
each month. By rotating the days of
the week, these convocations would
not conflict with classroom work
enough to warrant objection on thats
score. The effect of these meetings,n
open to all students of the University,
would be, in the opinion of the coun-i
cil, the strengthening of a group spiritr
at Michigan that is being lost with
the increased size of the University.
Prominent men, both on the campus t
and visitors, will be asked to address1
these meetings, according to the plans'
of the council.x
The comnmittee of the council that
is working on the plans for a Burton
memorial, which was started by the
Student council of last year, is at-
tempting to secure three speakers oft
national prominence to address the
student body at Hill auditorium. A
small admission price would be1

charged, and the proceeds devoted to
the memorial fund, which will be used
for the purchase of the $17,000 chimes
to be placed in the campanile, br
whatever building is-selected to house
the University's memorial to its lateI
President. The money collected by1
the various classes, which is also to I
be placed in this fund, will not reach
the desired quota for a number of
years without aid.
Charles Oakman, '26, William Col-
man, '26, and Charles Grube, '26, were
selected to consider the reorganiza-
tion of Michigan's football cheering
section for the 1926 season, and also.
to study the system of ticket distribu-
tion. It is probable that if the cheer-
ing section composed of "M" men,
which will be tried during the bas-
ketball season, is successful, a simi-

Proceedings Enlivened Py Suggestions
Of Impeachment AMd Perjury
In itchel's Book
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 9.-Proceed-
ngs of the Mitchell court martial
were enlivened today by suggestions
f impeachment and perjury and a
motion that one of the prosecution
counsel be placed in contempt of
court. Added to these irregularities
were questions of courage, renewed
demand by the court for order, and
mixed manifestations of commenda-
ion and displeasure by spectators
who crowded the room.
Maj. Allen Gullion, assistant trial
judge advocate, stood out as the prin-
ipal figure in the turbulent forenoon
session. It was he who introduced
Capt. Thomas C. Hart, a prosecution
witness brought from duty with the
battle fleet in the Pacific, and started

'deliberately cribbed" without "per-
mission or authority" substantial
parts of the book "Winged Defense."
Before the court ruled out the ma-
jor's plea and other references to the
book's authorship, he argued that the
evidence he sought to offer was "ad-
missible to impeach the accused as a
witness." To this Rep. Frank R. Reid,
chief defense counsel, replied with
heat, advising the court that there
was nothing in the records to suggest
Colonel Mitchell had perjuredl .him-
self, and asserting that the book con-
tained passages showing it had been
compiled from information taken
from "existing records," public jour-
nals, congressional data, and personal
experiences of the writer.

GENEVA, Dec. 9.-England and
France today reached an accord con-
cerning study of the problem of mu-
tual assistance in wartime, in connec-
tion with the preparations for the in-
ternational disarmament conference.
After a secret meeting of the
League of Nations council, M. Paul-
Boncour of France announced that
Foreign Minister Benes of Czecho-
Slovakia had been appointed to draft
{ a formula covering the question
which divided the British and French.

He explained that the study of
mutual assistance would be more
flexible than originally proposed by
the French, thus intimating that a
compromise had been reached.
The impression is growing that
England favors separation of the
study of land naval armaments, keep-
ing the road open for a possible sec-
ond naval conference in Washington,

disarmament problem as one and in-

In his preamble M. Loucheur af-

to obtain the necessary money. Loans

doomed to failure, and to continue the
policy of inflation pursued during the
current year might lead the country

hours of debate on taxes in the House,
which included the first assaults on
the non-partisan bill drafted by the
ways and means committee to slash
the federal tax burden by $325,000,000
next year.
Representative Rainey, of Illinois, a
Democratic member of the committee,
declared he would not support the
meaure "unless materially changed,"
and, with Representative Hull, of Ten-

of the committee, urged a lesser re-

elimination of the provision to in-
