VOI, XXXVI. No. 10
Gas Valve System Is Point at Stake;
Worth Will BRe Asked If Stationi
Actually Opposed Change
(By Associated Press)
Lakehurst, N. J., Oct. 1.-Captain
Heiren, former Zeppelin pilot gave to
the Naval court of inquiry here today
the names of the men upon whose
statements he said he had based his
charges that those at the Lakehurst
air station knew why the Shenandoah
collapsed and that the change in the
gas valve system in th'e airship had
been fought all along.
They were Benjamin Herch, a ma-
chinists mate and James Worth, chief
draftsman at the air station. Herch
later denied on the stand that he had
given Captain Heinen any reasons
*hy the collapse occurred. Worth
will be called later for questioning
as to whether he did say that those
at the air station had fought the re-
duction in the number of the auto-
matic gas valves on the ship.-
'With respect to his statement that
the crew of the ship were apprehen-
dive about the mid-western flight be-
cause of her condition, Captain Hein-
en conceded that it was based on an
account given to him by his secretary,
of a conversation the latter had with'
a man named buckley, a former mom-
her of the Shenandoah's personnel.
Before the court insisted on a dis-
closure of the names of the men re-
ferred to in his testimony yesterday
daptain Heinen had stoutly maintain-.
ed through all the fire of cross ex-
amination that those in charge of the
Shenandoah should have been warned
by danger signals present in the air
in ample time to have saved the ship.
Frankly conceding that while pilot-
ing German dirigible he had gotten
into ascending air currents, the wit-
ness, inlained that i the case of
the Shenandoah there should have
been no such error, since the sings
were plainly visible. Asked if there
were any pilots in this country who
could have gotten the Shenandoah
out of 4the storm, Captain Heinen
said there were many including Com-
mander Zachary Lansdowne himself,
adding that his opinion of Comman-
der Lansdowne as an airship pilot
was, and is, of the highest. The wit-
niess said the dead commander of the
sh'ip simply made a mistake in judg-
Ment "because he had not quite
enough experience out of the past."
(By Associated Press)
Washington, Oct. 1.-Members of
the inter-parliamentary union from
38 nations met today in the House of
Representatives, casting aside all for-
malities of procedure for their 23rd
conference, and immediately launch-
ed a general offensive against exist-
ing difficulties in world and govern-
mental affairs.
Speakers representing the British,
German, Swedish, French ,and other
governments introduced almost with-
in an hour of the conference opening

sharply worded statements referring
to the League of Nations, armaments,
the security pact, war, peace and the
many associated subjects.
Secretary Kellogg's reference, con-
tained in his address of welcome to
which he said created discontent in
nations and threatened established
government and peace was taken up
almost without exception by subse-
quent speakers whose elaboration of
that thought became virtually the key
to the debate which followed.
Varsity Band To
Hold Drill Today
The Varsity band will meet for
drill at 4 o'clock today at the south
gate of Ferry field. Since this will
be the last drill before the M. S. C.
game, Capt. Wilfred Wilson, director
of the band, is especially desirous of
having a full turnout.

25, 000 To See
IM.S.C. Conflict,
Says Tillotson
More than 25,000 people will wit-
ness the Michigan-M. S. C. game at
1 erry field tomorrow afternoon, in
the opinion of Harry Tillotson, busi-
ness manager of the athletic associa-
tion who is in charge of the distri-
bution of tickets.
More than 20,000 tickets had been
sold early yesterday' afternoon, with
more orders coining in. Seats are
now selling about even with the goal
line and an unlimited number are
still available. Six thousands seats
for the game were sold at Michigan
State college.
Will Furnish Organizations With
Names Of Potential Candidates
if Desired.
As soon as the work of filing regis-
tration cards of freshmen and new
students is completed at the Union,
letters will be sent to all campus ac-
tivity organizations and the Athletic
association by the recording depart-
ment of the Union offering coopera-
tion in the way of furnishing names
of possible candidates ,if such lists
are desired by the various organiza-
tions. Richard Barton, '26, recording
secretary of the Union, who will have
charge of the communications, said
yesterday he hoped to have the let-
ters out within a few days.
The activity card of every fresh-
man and new student, and possibly
sophomores, will be examined and his
name sent to each organization, un-
covering the field in which he pro-
fessed an interest at the time of reg-I
istration provided such lists are de-'
aired by the organization. The ac-
tivity list besides sports, includes'
oratory, music, dramatics, publica-
tions, etc. No names will be sent the
organizations until the Union is 'ad-
vised that such a list of candidates
is desired, Barton stated.
By inaugurating this plan, the1
Union hopes to be of considerable
benefit to campus organizations look-
ing for likely material in their re-'
spective fields, and that a goodly
amount of uncovered talent about the
campus may be brought to light.
President Clarence Cook Little will

ing at the regular Friday assembly of

Arrangement of $40,000,000 Annuity
For Five Years Would Only
Be Temporary
(By Associated Pre'ss)
Washington, Oct. 1.-The frail for-
mula of a tentative -arrangement,
which must be ratified by the French
government, today was thrust into
the breech to prevent complete col-
lapse of the Franco-American debt
funding negotiations.
Thus, one week after Finance Min-
ister Caillaux and his associates had
laid down the first French proposal
for funding their government's four
billion dollar war debt they departed
for France taking with them a docu-
ment intended only to fill the gap
sufficiently to assure continuity of
negotiations-even at long range.
The arrangement, proposed by the
American Debt commission as a fnal
move to overcome what appeared to
be insurmountable difficulties, would
have France pay an annuity of $40,-
000,000 a year for five years and
would enable the two governme ts
to continue consideation of a pto-
gram of final settlement to succeed
the proposed temporary pact at its
Further, it concedes that the an-
nuity thus paid shall be in lieu of all
interest on the debt during the time
it shall run--or an interest clu-> of
approximately 1 per cent a yea 1 !
Caillaux gave American Commis-
sipners the hope that he believed the
French government would accept the
agreement. He declined to sign it as
a plenipotentiary, inasmuch as he had
been intrusted by his government, he
said, to sign only a final settlement
and he questioned his own right to
act on pan arrangement of a provision-
al character.
"Consequently, being as desirous as
you are not to interrupt the negotia-
tions which cannot fail to reach an
agreement," M. Caillaux's last state-
Mont to the Americans said, "the
minister of finance can do no more
than submit to his colleagues of the
French cabinet in Paris, the compos-
tion which you have made today and
he will do his utmost to give an an-
swer as soon as possible."
It was after making that statement
that M. Caillaux and his associates
I marched in single file from the meet-
lug and the end of the conversation
between the 'two commissions had
come. M. Caillaux was unhappy that
a premanent arrangement was not
reached. Secretary Mellon, too, was
.disappointed, but he,snevertheless, re-
garded the result as a step forward
and he felt that a better understand-
ing between the two nations had been
But observers and vene members
of the commission held varied,.
opinions as to the tangible results of
the seven day conference. Disap-
pointment and dissatisfaction pre-
dominated in some quarters that the
Americans had been unable to do
' more, in others the prevailing senti-
ment was that France can do better
in the way of terms, five years hence,
than her reprsentatives felt able to
do at this time. " Among all those di-
rectly concerned with the negotia-
tions, however, there was a noticeable
sense of relief at there conclusion.

Dr. Frank N. Blanchard and Prof.
f A. M. Chickering spoke for the facul-
ty at a meeting of the Zoology Journal
club last night in the Natural Science
y building. Dr. Blanchard spoke on the
progress made in the study of garter
snakes and announced some of the
e recent zoological publications.
Professor Chickering gave a review
- on "Origin of the Germ Cells in Al-
Sbino Rats," by George T. Ilargitt, and
"On the Nature of Mitochondria," by
Ivan E. Wallin. Professor Chickering
is head of the biology department of
Albion college and is on a one year
e leave of absence fmtm that college to
r do research work here.
