Appearing for the benefit of the
Burton Memorial fund, Prof. William
Sandoz. Swiss traveler, will present
his series of pictures entitled "Visions
of Art" on March 29, 30, and 31, at
11111 auditorium, under the auspices of
the Student council,.
Professor Sandoz, whose consent to
appear in behalf of the memorial to
the late President Burton was an-
nounced at the council meeting last
tight, will offer the second number
on the council's program, the first be-
ing Vilhjalmur Stefansson's lecture on
March 12, which will deal with some
'of his experiences on his Arctic ex-
ploration trips.
Uses Own Machine
"The "Vsions of Art", a series of
slides prepared by Professor Sandoz
and projected by means of a specially
constructed machine of the traveler's
own design, were shown in Ann Arbor
last May, but a number of new pro-
grams will be added this year, due
to the fact that Professor Sandoz will
offer a nerformance in the auditorium
for three consecutive nights, instead
of just one evening. His first pro-
gram will consist of pictures of "Pa-
ris through the ages-the social and
cultural capital of the world", and "A
visit to the accumulated treasures in
tilhe celebrated museums of the Iuvre
and the Luxembourg."
On the two following nights the pic-
tures will be selected from the follow-
ing groups: 'Bewitching France,'
"The Marvels of Artistic Spain," "Nor-
thern Africa," "Visions of the Orient,"
"The Egypt of the Pharoahs," "Ver-
sailles and the Trianon" and "India
and its Splendor."
In addition to Mr. Stefansson and
Professor Sandoz, the' council is nego-
tiating with former Col. William Mit-
chell, and may secure him for an ad-
dress in March, the proceeds of which
will also be devoted to the Burton
Memorial fund.
Endorse Convention
At its meeting last night at the Un-
ion the council also approved the ac-
tlon of John Elliott, '26, Michigan
delegate to the Student World Court
conference , held last December at
Princeton, in making Michigan a mem-
ber of the National Pederation of Stu-
dents, an organization composed of
college students of the United States,
formed for the purpose of discussing
and formulating student opinion on
national topics, such as the World
court, and prohibition. The council al-
so endorsed the plan of having the
next annual convention of the federa-
tion in Ann Arbor next December.
Plans for the reorganization of the
Student council, to become effective
next fall, which have been under con-
sideration for some time, were dis-
cussed last night. The proposed change
will abolish the Student council in its
present form, and substitute a College
council in each school and college of
the University, to be composed, in
each college, of members from all four
classes, the senior member obtaining
the highest number of votes to be the
president. The All-University council,
under the proposed change, will con-
sist of the various presidents of the
class councils.
Due to the radical changes embodied
in the new system, no definite action
will be taken for several weeks, but
the new arrangement finally decided
upon will be put into operation before
the all-campus elections this spring,
which select the members of the.'stu-
dent governing bodies next ybar.

A motipn was also passed by the
council, addressed to the Board in
Control of student Publications, re-!
questing that the staff appointments
on the undergraduate publications be
made as soon as is practicable, in or-
der to allow publications men who will,
not be busy at the Press building nextj
year to enter the all-campus elections,
and in order to let the new men in
charge complete the organization of
their staffs well in advance of the final
examinations in the last week of May.

Newsnapers In Berlin Assume British
Will Support French In Fight
To Enlarge Council
(By Associated Press)
BERLIN, Feb. 24.-The German
cabinet today designated Chancellor
Luther and Foreign Minister Strese-
mann to represent Germany at the
Geneva meetings of the League of Na-
tions next month, at which Germany's
admission to the league will be dis-
While some uneasiness is felt in
official circles over the vagueness of
the speech made at Birmingham on
Monday by Sir Austen Chamberlain,
in which the British foreign secretary
referred to the possibilities of con-~
troversy over the question of enlarg-
ing the league council, nevertheless
the German representatives will go
to Geneva with the assumption that
the same spirit which characterized
Locarno will be in evidence there.
Sir Austen's speech created alarm
in the Berlin newspapers, which pub-
lished it with headlines such as Ger-
many's entry into the League doubt-
fnl," "Chamberlain' sevasions," and
"Chamberlain in tow of French."
The newspapers seem to take it for
granted that the British foreign sec-
retary at Geneva next month will
support the French argument that
the council should be enlarged by the
granting of permanent seats to coun-
tries other than Germany, and they,
emphatically affirm that should the
German delegates be confronted with
a fiat accomphi in the fornm of an ex-
tended league council, they should
withdraw the application for admis-
sion to the league.
Final action on the proposed new
football stadium, seating more than
60,000 persons and located outside the
boundary of Ferry field, will be taken
tonight when the Board of Regents
holds its monthly meeting. The stad-
ium question, which was postponed
last month, will be the only subject
for discussion tonight.
The new stadium has now been ap-
proved by the Board in Control of Ath-
letics and the University Senate and
awaits only the final action of the
Board of Regents. .
