WASHINGTON, Feb. 23.-Mrs. Cool-
idge is suffering from a cold which
caused her to cancel plans to attend
a dinner to be given tonight by at-
torney general and Mrs. Sargent.
Assurance was given at the White
House that Mrs. Coolidge's indisposi-
tion was not serious. The president,
practically recovered from the cold
which laid him up for several days
last week, went ahead with arrange-
ments to attend the dinner planned
in honor of himself and Mrs. Coolidge.
Last week, at another "prominent
dinner" given by Secretary Davis of
the War department and Mrs. Davis,
fthe President at the last moment felt
unable to attend.

He further stated that the influence
of petty politics had done much to
make the existent censor plan im-

the like of which this country has
never seen.
In regard to the child problem he
said, "Far more children have been
made good by the movies than have
been made bad. We must know how

to wisely teach our children to be
their own best censors."

Determined to offer every oppor-

constructive criticism pertaining to
the maintenance of the Union, th in-
vestigating committee, at its sixth

announced following yesterday's ses-

sented in person at any of the meat-
ings which will be held from time to
time until the investigation is com

! will be held at 2 o'clock next Friday
afternoon in room 302 of the Union.

be held from time to time which will

ing before the committee, or submit-
ting any criticisms will be treated in
strict confidence," Diener added.
In discussing the postpone general
membership meeting which was
scheduled some weeks ago with the
f signing of petitions charging ineffi-
ciency within the Union, and which
recommended certain amendments to
the constitution, Diener stated: "It
has been agreed by the investigation
committee, with Mr. Adams in ac-
cord, that the general meeting be
postponed until the committee has
made public a fair and unbiased re-
port, not only concerning the alleged
inefficiencies, but regarding any other
findings and recommendations which
may be made. We believe it is only
