Indorses World Court At Conference
in Princeton, New Jersey
Last Week



~ .

Representing the student body of
more than 245 colleges of the United
States the national students confer-
ence on the World Court held last
Friday and Saturday in Princeton,
New Jersey, endorsed the Harding
Hughes Coolidge plan which recom-
mends the immediate entrance of the
United States into the court, accord-
ing to Elizabeth Parrot, '26, who was
present as the official delegate of the
Women's league of Michigan.
The greatest value of the conference
Miss Parrot believed was not the de-
cision concerning the World Court
plan but the leading up to the forma-
tion of a permanent organization of
student representatives for the dis-
cussion of international problems.
Several of the speakers emphasized
the need of student opinion in na-
tional affairs and pointed to the
examples of China, Germany, and Rus-
sia as countries actually run by stu-
dent action.
A national student federation of the
United States was formed and officers
elected at the Princeton conference.
Colleges represented in these lections
were: president, Princeton; vice-pres-
ident, Florida; secretary, Ohio State;
and treasurer, John Elliott, '26, of
Michigan. This organization was
formed temporarily whose purpose
is to consider the formation of a more
permanent one later.
"In talking with women representa-
tives of other colleges present at the
conference," commented Miss Parrot,
"I found that they believed their re-
stective campuses to be completely or-
ganized and that if such an organiza-
tion as the national student federa-
tion should be permanently formed a
reorganization of the present activi-
ties would be necessary in order to
allow an active participation of the
Miss Parrot gave! an informal re-
port of her trip before the members
of the board of directors of the Wo-
men's league yesterday. She will talk
- to the members of Athena and Portia
Literary societies tonight concerning
the results of the conference.
