Dawes, Ire Roused ByDebates
StIn Senate, Wrecks Speakers'
Stand in Cloture Rule Appeal



(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 20. - Vic(
President Charles G. Dawes, no long
er amused at continuous debate I
the Senate to delay a decision on th
World Court question, has resume,
his fight for revision of the rules t
curb extraneous discussion.
After sitting for hours in the Sen
ate yesterday listening to opponent
3of American adherence to the cour
deliver speeches and read a magazin
article written in 1893, Mr. Dawes' ex
asperation led him to a radio micro
phone to broadcast anew his protes
against such tactics.
He spoke with so much vigor at time
that the microphone, not attuned t(
such vehemence, sent forth onli
squawky vibrations. . Although un
seen by his audience, Mr. Dawes fel
impelled to emphasize his remark:
with powerful gestures. As a resul
the speaking stand he used was al
most shattered by raps from his fists
The stand had been constructed es.
pecially for President Coolidge.
The Vice-President's impatience
was not lessened by the fact that
leaders of both sides in the court fight
are conducting negotiations to set a
date for a vote on the adherence reso-
lution. The main point of difference
is whether the vote shall precede or
follow consideration of the tax reduc-
tion bill.
An article written 33 years ago by
Andrew Carnegie and which Senator
James A. Reed (Dem.) Missouri,
caused to read into the record was re-


ferred to by Mr. Dawes in his radio
speech, whiclr was heard by alumni
of the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology at dinners in 67 cities.
The reading consumed an hour and a
half, "and this prompted me," the Vice-
President said, "to bring the question
of the failure of the Senate rules to
your attention." He had prepared the
usual alumni address, but changed to
his pet subject at the last moment.

President Of Detroit-Edison Appears
On School Of Religion Lecture
Series Program
"Business Ethics" is the subject up-
. on which Alexander Dow, president
of the Detroit Edison company, will
discuss in h'is lecture at 4:15 o'clock
today in Natural Science auditorium.
Mr." Dow will speak under the aus-
pices of the School of Religion, his
lecture comprising the seventh 'num-
ber of a series offered during the pres-
ent semester.
The speaker has spent many years
in the business, and is now general
manager as well as president of the
Detroit Edison company. For three
years following 1893 Mr. Dow acted
as chief electrical engineer to the city
of Detroit, and a few years later be-
came water commissioner to that mu-
nicipality. The degree of honorary
Master of Engineering was conferred
upnhim by the University in 1911.
M Dr.Dow is a member of the British
Institute of Electrical engineers, the
American Society of Civil Engineers,
and the American Institute of Elec-
[trical Engineers. Mr. Dow will treat
the moral problems facing the busi-
ness man of today in the his various
professional associations.
These lectures have been arranged
[in connection with Prof. Kirsopp
Lake's seminar in the moral issues of
modern life, with the aim of bring-
ing prominent men in the various bus-
mess and professional fields to Ann
Arbor that they may discuss the moral
problems peculiar to their fields. Fol-
lowing the lecture, the audience will
be given an opportunity to discuss
with the speaker the problems sug-
gested by the lecture. The questions
suggested by the speaker will later
be discussed in detail by members of
Professor Lake's seminar.

Provision was made for funds to
t establish two new scholarships at the
t University in the will of Mrs. Caroline
z P. Campbell, of Grand Rapids, who
died Jan. 6. Word has been received
by University authorities from the
r Michigan Trust company, stating that
a large portion of the estate, the value
of which is estimated to be between
$50,000 and $60,000, will be used as
, a foundation for this purpose.
The two scholarships for which pro-
visions were made, will be for original
. research in the history of the North-
west territory. One of the scholar-
ships is to be known as the "Isaac
E. Craig, Founder of the Michigan
Public School System, Scholarship
Fund"; the other will be called the
"John D. Pierce, Organizer and First
Superintendent of the Michigan Pub-
lic School System, Scholarship Fund".
Except for a few small legacies
amounting to approximately $4,600,
the entire estate will be turned over
to the University and the net income
will be used for the scholarships.
The will also provided for the gift
of the laws books of the late James
H. Campbell to the law department
of the University. The set is said to
be large, and valuable.
Mrs. Campbell, who was particular-
ly interested in the history of the
Northwest territory and of Michigan,
had in her estate many manuscripts
pertaining to this subject. These will
become the property of the Univer-
sity library. The most important of
these manuscripts are contained in
the Lucius Lyon collection.
Will Discuss
Philosophy Of
Tolstoy Today
Tolstoy's philosophies will be the
subject of Dr. F. S. Onderdonk's pic-
ture dialogue to be given under the
auspices of the newly organized Tol-
stoy league at 4:15 o'clock this after-
noon in Alumni Memorial hall. This
is the first public gathering held by
this society, which is founded to make
a thorough study of the works of the
Russian writer.
Dr. Onderdonk is on the architec-
tural college faculty. He has been
instrumental in founding the Tolstoy
league at the University, and recently
attracted attention by anti-militaristic
speeches. Since his return from
Vienna, where he was a student
throughout the war he has been lec-
turing on a number of subjects in
many cities in thiscountry. He is a.
student and admirer of the life and
work of Tolstoy, and has entitled his
lecture of this afternoon "Is Life
Worth While", because .he believes
that there may be found in that writ-
er's work an answer to every prob-
lem confronting modern civilization.
"Tolstoy," he has said, "is the prophet
God has sent to the present age. He
is not merely an author of interesting
fiction, but his books are valuable
treatises on such subjects as war and
peace, religion, ethics and sex. Tol-
stoy was not a Bolshevist, but he was
a progressive thinker who worked to
bring enlightened thought to Russia
and southern Europe."
The dialogue will consist of a ser-
ies of pictures chosen from a collec-
tion of more than 1000, gathered by
Dr. Onderdonk during his stay in

Shows Need Of Correlating Courses
And Finding Common Factors
To Aid Memory
"Research must be present in re-
lation to a general currioulum but it
cannot be the sole criterion of judg-
ment for educational work," said
President Clarence Cook Little in an,
address given yesterday before stu-
dents of the School of Education.
"Research is similar to electricity,"
Dr. Little said, "a small amount vita-
lizes but too great a dose paralyzes
and murders. For an example, too
much of Dickens cannot be assimi-
lated by the immature mind o the
high school student, but a little is
He emphasized the fact that caution
is needed to get just the proper
amount of research in teaching. It
is necessary to have enough to pro-
E vide a standard for the course but
"many schools are suffering from too
much research in scholastic wprk.
There is such a thing as too great
conservatism due to too great pres-
sure in research."
Discusses Friendship
Dr. Little's second point was in re-
gard to the +relation of friendship and
fear in the classroom. Many profes-
sors conduct courses by a "rule of
fear, by first, telling the students
what must be done; second, detecting
those who fail to do it; third, firing
them out of the course."
Dr. Little contends that "unless we
learn that the mind is fully as import-
ant as the method, we are going to be
in a bad fix. We only Tequire that
the student have a certain number of
tools in his knapsack and not that he
knows how to use them. We have to
determine the second factor. At.
present our system is resting on a
narrow point of scholastic attainment.
We will have to change It so that the
point will go up and down a little
and balance with the human side."
"The same is true in religion but
the religious reaction has come sooner
because education can' jam its ma-
chine-made force into the people for
five and a half days a week, whereas
religion has only one day. But exactly
the same situation is present in
"The philosophy of friendship will
do more than the laying down of
rules. If you live by rule and fear
alone, where comes the move toward
S"Teach not by the right of eminent
domain but by the right of superior
understanding of the problems of the
iindividual student. Friendship rather
than fear must be the basis of perma-
nent building'. A fairly safe guide in
facing situations and a habit that you
can develop is to first, look for and
find what elements they have in com-
muon; second, what tendencies they
have to correlate, and unify them.
Facts alone mneely cla sified do not
in any way meet the situation. Unless
you try to correlate your college
courses and find something in com-
non between your courses you'll not
remember them."
Reserve Important
The principle of organized reserve
was next discussed by Dr. Little.
"Keepma part of your personality, and
your mentality, unpledged, and a part
of your physical being in reserve," he
With regard to governments, Dr.
Little said that the absolute monarchy

has too much reserve, thereby killing
initiative; a democracy should be bal-
anced but there is a great canger of
emphasizing efficiency for material
profit; communism might be balanced
but it is apt to allow disintegration
of organized reserve; in an anarchy
there is no organized reserve,-the
government is entirely turned over to
the whims of the people.
"The more you use your organized
reserve intelligently and pptimisti-
cally," - Dr. Little concluded, "the
more it will develop."
BRUSSELS.--The council of minis-
ters approved the bill prepared by
Finance Minister Janssen, providing
for the consolidation of 2,000,000
