Specialized Il History Of Northwest;
Has Written Several Books Of
Michigan History
History of the state of Michigan,
considering especially the mining in-
dustry, will figure in the courses in
recent American history to be given
during the second semester by Pro.
L. A. Chase, head of the history de-
partment at Northern State Normal
School at Marquette, Mich., who will
conduct the courses in place of Prof.
Ulrich B. Phillips who is to study
plantation documents of the south.
"Mining and agriculture have been
neglected," Professor Chase said in
an interview, "in research and in
text-books. Yet they are all-impor-
tant to this part of the country. The
automobile industry of Detroit would
not exist without the Lake Superior
iron field." Professor Chase explained
that the steel industries of South Chi-.
cago, Cleveland, Toledo, Youngstown,
and Pittsburgh also depend for their
raw materials on the upper peninsula
deposits. Therefore, he said, the his-
tory of mining is one of the most val-
uable unknown fields.1
Professor Chase graduated from the1
University in 1910, receiving his mas-
ter's degree in 1911. He has been atj
the Normal school most of the time
since then. He has specialized in thea
history of the northwest, being par-
ticularly interested in industrial de-
velopment. His books include "The
Government of Michigan" and "Rural
Michigan." He is of the opinion that ,
state history has not received the at-
tention it . deserves from research
workers, and that it is not generallya
well enough knownby the public.
The courses Professor Chase is to
give include "The United States in
recent decades," "The Westward Move-
ment," and a seminar, all of which
are continuations of courses given pre-
viously by Professor Phillips who has
been granted a leave of absence. Pro-,
fessor Chase said that he has several
hundred topics prepared for the grad-
uate students in the seminar.
Because few colleges or universi-
ties, are located near mining centers,
according to Professor Chase, re-
search workers have been little in-
terested in this phase of industrial
history. At Marquette, however, there
is opportunity to study the subject
first hand. In regard to the west-
ward movement study, he stated that
mineral resources were a strong influ-
ence in attracting people from the
Of a total of 54,000,000 tons of iron
produced in the United States in 1924,
according to figures which Professor
Chase quoted, 44,000,000 were produc-
ed in the state of Michigan. Since the
opening of the Lake Superior iron de-
posits in the '40s, more than one bil-
lion tons of iron and a like amount of
copper have been taken from mines in
Michigan. Concerning the importance
of these products to other industries,
building, for example, he said that in
the Detroit General Motors building
15,000 tons of steel were used, while in
the Equitable building in New York,
more than 33,000 tons were necessary.
Michigan is especially suited for
iron production, he continued, be-
cause of the ha'rdwood timber avail-
able in the upper peninsula. A recent
estimate shows that there are more
than 45,000,000 boardfeet of standing
timber in the upper peninsula. Iron

produced in Michigan is of a high
quality, due to the fact that charcoal
is used to a great extent in its pro-
duction instead of coke.j
Members of the Ann Arbor Trades
council will hear President Clarence
Cook Little in an address on the sub-
ject, "Mass Education," before that or-
ganization next Friday night at the
Y. M. C. A.
The address Friday, which will be
open to thepublic, will mark the first
appearance of a University president
before a group of city trade unionistsi
as a body.I

For the purpose of consulting;
more students interested in'
work at the Union, William L.
Diener, the new president, will
be in his office every day for the
next two weeks during the
examination period from 5 until,
6 o'clock. Another large number
of students were interviewed by
Diener yesterday.
A meeting of the Union ap-
pointment committee will be held
at 1:30 o'clock Tuesday after-
noon for the first consideration
of possible committeemen. Defi-
nite appointments will not be
made until later in the week
after every interested applicant
has had an opportunity to call
at the Union.
High school authorities of the
state will be consulted on the adop-
tion of the new University entrance
plan which is being considered by the
President's special committee on ad-
missions, along lines suggested by.
President Clarence Cook Little. At
its initial meeting yesterday, the com-
mittee decided to take the matter up
at a joint meeting with a committee
representing the Michigan State Prin-
cipals' association which will come to
the city next Saturday.
At the meeting yesterday, Registrar
Ira, M. Smith, chairman of the com-
mittee, presented the tentative form
of application blank which has been
drawn up for use next fall. On this
blank entering students will be asked
to give detailed information concern-
ing their past scholastic record and
private life. Methods of putting this
information to the most effective use
in the student's interest, were dis-
cussed by the committee yesterday.
The committee will meet again Wed-
nesday to make further plans for the
joint session with the state principal's
committee next week.

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 23.-Anthra-
cite miners and operators will meet
again in joint conference in a few
days for another battle to end the
long coal strike.
'The meeting will be held at the re- I
quest of John L. Lewis, president of
the United Mine Workers, but the
operators already have served notice
that the plan on which the call for
further conference is based is funda-
mentally unsound, and does not afford
a satisfactory basis for a contract..
The call for the meeting was ex-
pected to be issued from Hazelton,
late tonight or early Sunday morning,
by Alvin Markle, chairman of the joint
conference of operators and miners.
Many interests, it was said, had to be
criticized before the time and place
could be fixed. The conference will
be held in New York city next week.
President Lewis suggested any coal
region city or New York, as the opera-
tors preferred.
"What a Deep Waterway Will Mean
to Michigan" will be the subject of
an address by John A. Doelle, secre-
tary of the Michigan real estate as-
sociation and sectional secretary of
the Great Lakes, St. Lawrence Tide-
water association, at a luncheon of
the Chamber of Commerce Tuesday.
The whole program will be given
over to realtors, with Carey J. Trem-
mel, president of the Ann Arbor real
estate board, as chairman.

A second number of the club's pro-
gram will consist of a number of old
time tunes played by Horace Barnard,
Ann Arbor's "Old Time Fiddler".

WASHINGTON, Jan. 23. - A new
world's record speed flight for sea-
planes was made today at Langley
Field, Va., by Lieut. George C. Mc-
Donald, of the army air service, fly-

tover a 200-kilometer stretch.
Three other speed records for air-
craft of the seaplane were smashed
at the same time.

Modified Proposal Offers Nations In
Dispute Recourse To Court
By Treaty
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 23.-With the
Senate standing ready to adopt on
tMonday its drastic cloture rule which
Iwould practically cut off discussion,
new negotiations were begun tonight
looking to an agreement for limitation
of debate on the World Court.
This new and eleventh hour effort
to stave off a vote on cloture was
!launched after leaders of the pro-
court forces had offered a substitute
resolution of adherence which oppon-
ents said met some of the most ser-
ious objections they had raised in the
+ debate which began Dec. 17.
The substitute was the result of a
long series of conferences among the
court advocates, and was offered by
Senator Swanson, Democrat, Va., au-
thor of the pending resolution. Its
chief feature is that recourse to the
World Court for settlement of differ-
ences between the United States and'
other nations could be had only by
agreement through general or special'
treaties concluded between the nations
in dispute.
Another amendment to the
original resolution provides that
the court shall not renderl
any adverse opinion except after
due notice to all states adhering to
the court and to all interested states
and after public hearing or opportun-
ity for hearing had been given to any
state concerned.
Still another proviso is that the
United States would not be required
to depart from its traditional policy
of not intruding upon, interfering
with, or entangling itself in the polit-
ical questions of policy or internal
administration of any foreign state,
"nor would there be implied," a re-
linquishment by the United States of
its traditional attitude toward purely

Selections from "Tambourine" and
talks by four members of the faculty
will be broadcast on the regitlar
Michigan Night radio program from 9

Detroit Paper To Take Movies During
Evening; Each Booth Will Supply
Own Punch Cups
Announcement was made by the J-
Hop committee last night that the
1927 J-Hop will begin at 9:30 o'clock
on the night of Feb. 5. The grand
march will be one of the first events
of the evening, followed by the forma-
tion of the traditional block "M"; it
is expected that over 1500 people will
participate in forming the initial. A
photograph of the human "M" will
be taken and rushed to Detroit in'
order to have the cut of the picture
back in time to appear in the Satur-
day morning Daily J-Hop extra.
Three orchestras of national promi-
nence will play for the Hop. Ray
Miller's 14-piece organization of
Brunswick fame, and Zez Confrey's
orchestra that has been recording reg-
ularly for the Victor Talking Machine
company, will furnish the music in
Waterman gymnasium. The Royal
Canadians, who are well-known here
through their weekly broadcasting
programs from the Music Box in
Cleveland, will play in Barbour gym-
nasium. Miller's organization is re-
puted to be the only jazz orchestra
which has appeared on the White
House lawn in Washington; they have
appeared in practically all of the lead-
ing colleges and universities in the
East at various social functions.
The decoration scheme, which was
designed by J. Dale Darling, '26E, is
of a futuristic nature, and features
color contrast as the main theme.
The scheme is being worked out in
detail by the George M. Johnson com.n
pany of Detroit, and is under the sup-
ervision of Kenneth A. Michel, '27A.
Each of the 53 booths is included in
the general plan of decorations, and
the lines of the design run into a huge
motif at the end of the gym under
which the patron booth will be placed.-
Darts of color will flood the dance-
floor at various times during the eve-
Ban Intoxicants
Doormen have orders, it was of -
ficially announced last night, to re-
fuse entrance to anyone coming to
the Hop in an intoxicated condition.
This is in accordance with the stand
taken by the committee against liquor
in any form at the prominent Jur or
social affair.
The Health service has ruled that
punch this year must be served in
paper cups. These are to be fur-
nished by each booth, the committee
states, and the committee will serve
the punch.
Favors ,eady Hop Week
Favors and programs will be ready
for distribution the week of the Hop,
beginning at 2 o'clock Tuesday, from
the side desk in the lobby of the Union.
The program, which is a 30 page af-
fair, is enclosed in the favor. There
will be a page in the dance booklet
for each dance, and the program will
be decorated in maize and blue colors.
Furniture for the various booths
must be in the gym by 3 o'clock the
I day of the Hop. A floor lamp and
any necessary bulbs are to be fur-
nished by each booth; all wiring will
be done by the committee. The gyms
will be closed after 3 o'clock for the
exclusive use of the decoration and
floor committee.
Beginning at 10:30 o'clock the night
of the Hop, the music will be broad-
casted through WWJ, the Detroit
News station, and it is expected this
will continue until the close of the

Iaffair at 3 o'clock. Movies will also
be taken of the event during the
course of the evening by the same

Gieseking To
Give Recital
Here Tuesday
As the fifth number on its program,
the Choral union will present Walter
Gieseking, famous German pianist, in
a recital at Hill auditorium at 8
o'clock, Tuesday, January 26. Mr.
Gieseking, who has been playing in
Europe for several years as a concert
'pianist, recently arrived in New York.
Not only is Mr. Gieseking a pianist
of distinction in the field of classical
music, but he is also fond of foxtrots
and other popular pieces. On board
the Berengaria during his recent voy-
age to America, according to the Lon-
don Evening News, "after thrilling
hundreds of people at a ship's con-
cert with classical masterpieces, he
delighted dancers hours after the band
had stopped by playing foxtrot after
foxtrot in perfect syncopation." This
versatility should make his program
in Ann Arbor of wide appeal for his
Dr. Albert A. Stanley of the school
of music, who has heard him severalc
times in Europe recommended Mr.
Gieseking as a pianist of ability, and
it was largely through his efforts that
the Ann Arbor management was abler
to contract for Mr. Gieseking's ap- 1
pearance here several months before
his proposed American tour was mader
publicly known.1
His recital will include Schuman'sI
"Kreislerania" Op. 1, "Partita Num-1
ber 1 B Flat Major" by Bach, and ar
group of 12 preludes by Debussy. C
Dr. S. Parkes Cadman To Speak Here c
Feb. 2, Advocates World Plan t
For Lasting Peacef
Dr. S. Parkes Cadman, hailed as thea
greatest preacher-lecturer since Hen-
ry Ward Beecher, will give the seventhI
lecture of the Oratorical associationr
season course at 8 o'clock, Feb. 2, int
Hill auditorium. "The Dawn of a t
New Day" will be his subject. t
His address will come during the
examination period, but the lecture
committee expressed the belief yes-
terday that the great majority of stu-
dents and faculty members will takel
this opportunity of hearing the notedr
churchman because his pressing du-
ties prevent his coming here at anyc
other date.t
Of English parents, Doctor Cadman1
received his training and education in
London, but came to the United States
in 1890 to begin his career. He at-
tended Wesleyan college, Richmond,r
London, and while there built up an I
enviable reputation as an orator andt
as a thinker in theological lines. His
scholarship was of the highest grade,
and he won much distinction while in
His present church and parish in
Brooklyn, N. Y, are the centers of a I
ministry said to be unsurpassed for'
intellectual range and spiritual in-!
sight. Many hail Doctor Cadman. as
one of the prophets of his age. The
strenuous duties of his large parish
and his position as head of the Fed-i
eration of Churches do not permit him
to give much time to lecture work.
His three pastorates in New York
city cover a space of 30 years.
Recently, Doctor Cadman has gained
prominence through his utterances in
behalf of a world plan to establish'
lasting and universal peace, and his
s -'ements have been widely published
by magazines and newspapers and
commented upon by editorial writers.
In "The Dawn of a New Day", Doc-

tor Cadman considers the question of
lasting peace, and gives his ideas of
attaining it. He has studied the ques-
tion of war from all angles, and un-
like many advocates of "world peace
, he dispenses with radical .statements
' and confines himself to logical rea-
Doctor Cadman' is now at the top of
his powers as a thinker, a speaker,
and an author, church authorities say.
Scientific and literary cirtics have re-,
ceived his books and articles with the
warmest appreciation. His utterances'
from the platform have been char-'
-acterized as those of a Christian'
astatesman. An occasional flash of wit
and humor,' tends to make "his lec-
ture most interesting to his audiences.
Among his well known writings are:
"Ambassadors of God", "The Three
Religious Leaders of Oxford." "Charles

reciprocated with a large photograph
of herself in her "Peter Pan" costume.
Several still photographs, as well as
moving pictures, were then taken of
Miss Stone and Roy Hoyer, and Miss
Stone, her father, Fred Stone, and!
the Mimes members. During the fin-
ale of the performance, she wore a
large maize and blue bouquet whichl
had been presented to her by Mimes.

Funeral To Be Thursday At Malines;
Plans For National Services
To Be Made Later
(By Associated Press)
BRUSSELS, Jan. 23.-Cardinal Mer-
cier, primate of Belgium, died at 3
o'clock this afternoon, and the passing
of the great patriot and great church-
man was announced by the tolling of
bells throughout the land.
He died peacefully, with eyes fixed
upon the crucifix and surrounded by
his family. The funeral will take
place at Malines on Thursday, and the
body will be transported there to-
night. It will lie in state in the arch-
episcopal residence. The holding of
national funeral services will be de-
cided upon by the council of minis-
Half an hour before the end, the
Cardinal's mind, which has been ex-
traordinarily clear and keen, began to
fil. Breathing became difficult, and
exactly at 3 o'clock his head fell for-
ward slightly as he expired.
In the last hours, Cardinal Mer-
cier grasped the hand of Brother Hu-
bert, who had so long and so faith-
fully watched over him, and with Hu-
bert,'s hand in his, the Cardinal,
breathed his last. A nun held the
other hand, in which she had placed
a lighted candle.
King. Albert and Prince Leopold
came to St. Jean Clinic, when they
learned of the passing of the Cardi-,
nal, and remained for several min-
utes silently beside the bier,. where
the body lay clothed in ceremonial
robes. Prior to this, Burgomiaster
Max came personally to record the
death of his ancient war-time ally.
Died At Peace With World.
Cardinal Mercier died as he had
lived, at peace with men of good will,
but fighting grimly against the in-
roads of insidious disease for weeks
with the same resolute and undaunt-
ed. courage with which he had faced
the enemies of his country during four
long years of occupation, for this
prince of the church, above all men,
was the spirit incarnate of the Belgian
people unbroken under the German
military heel.
During the 74 years of his well-
filled life, he lived to all the pre-
cepts of the gospel, but was no pas-
sive martyr.
"The Scripture says that when smit-
ten on the left cheek, we must turn
the right," he once remarked to Brand
Whitlock, the American minister in
the days of 1915, when the German
general von Bissing kept him virtual-
ly a prisoner in his palace at Malines,
"but It lays "down no rule about what
we must do thereafter."
How the great prelate interpreted
that omission all the world knows.
The Cardinal's principal interest in
life since the war had been his work
to bring the High Church of England
and the Roman Catholic Church closer
together, and although nothing of a
concrete character wasaever accom-
plished, he had not altogetherlost
hope of eventually realizing an aim
which was very dear to him.
