"Michigan Night", the ninth of the
regular radio programs of the Uni-
versity was broadcast last night by
station WJR, the Jewett Radio and
Phonograph Company of Pontiac. The
program consisted of four talks with
several groups of musical numbers.
Prof. Frederick A. Coller, of the
medical school spoke on "Goiter and
Public Health." In his talk he de-
scribed the seat of the malady, the
two common types of goiter and the
preventative for simple goiter. Pro-
fessor Coller pointed out that goiter
is prevalent in the well defined areas
along the St. Lawrence river and in
the Great Lake basin, which corre-
sponds closely to the area covered by
the ice sheet of the last glacial period.
"The outstanding fact about goiter,"
he stated, "is that it can be easily and
cheaplysprevented and will be eradi-
cated as soon as society wishes to
make the effort."

Noel, Official Photographer Of 1924
Scaling Attempt, To V isualize
Tibetan Country
Officially closing the season lecture
course of the Oratorical association,
Capt. John Baptist Noel, only surviv-
ing member of the world-watched Mt.
I Everest expedition, will give an illus-
trated lecture April 1, in Hill audi-
torium. No extra attractions outside
of the course have been booked to
date by the association, it was on-
nounced yesterday.
"The Epic of Everest" has been
graphically dramatized by Captain
Noel, who was the official photog-'
rapher of the fatal 1924 expedition as
well as the three previous exploits.
Through the aid of motion pictures,
he brings a graphic story of the at-
tempts that were made to scale the
I heights of the world's highest moun-
tain. As these pictures are thrown
on the screen, Captain Noel tells his
own personal story of the purposes,
fthe work, and the tragic climax of the
famous trip.
Not only do the pictures show the
actual work of the attempts to reach
the top of Mt. Everest but they also
visualize the people, customs, andI
country of quaint Tibet, the land of
Lamas, prayer-wheels, polyandry,
Yaks and buttered tea.
In this strange land a woman may
have several husbands but a man can
have only one wife, according to the
story of Captain Noel. Here it is that
women have developed a stronger
character than men and manage the
family business and training; here itI
is that where two sons are in a fam-
ily one of them must be given to the
monastery to become a Lama.
The land of the sacred valleys, "The
Jewel of the Lotus Flower", the Mani
stones, the quaint monasteries whege'
the Lamas dwell in solitude and med-
itation, are all shown. Captain Noel
relates that in this land the life of
no wild creature, bird, insect or fish
may be taken, for the Buddhists be-
lieve that every animal is a reincar-
nated human soul.

Nickle Plate
Plan Rejected
By Commission
(By Asoiated Pess)
WASHINC TON, March 2.-By a vote
of 7-1, the Inter-State commerce con-
mission today rejected the vast Nickle
Plate railroad measure project, but
left the way open for its promoters
to revise their plans for financing
such a transportation system.
The application of the Van Swerin-
gen interests to link up the five rail-
road units involved in the measure
was denied chiefly because of objec-
tions relating to the financial aspects
of the plan. The transportation phase
was generally approved, but the con--
siderations,terms and conditions of
the suggested acquisition were held
not to be in the public interest.
The merger would have linked up
the New York, Chicago and St. Louis
railroad company, or new Nickle
Plate with the Chesapeake and Ohio,
Hocking Valley, Erie, and Pere Mar-
quette railroads in a system having
more than 9,000 miles of line in 10
states and Canada with a property
value of more than a billion dollars.
Foremost Authority On Subject And
Founder Of World Famous
Botanical Garden
M. Henri Correvon, known as a
world authority on Alpine plants, who
will lecture this afternoon at 4:15
o'clock in the Natural Science audi-
torium, on the subject "Alpine Plants
-and Gardens," is the pioneer in the
movement for establishing Alpine
botanic gardens and flower preserves
in the mountains. le is the fqunder
and director of the botanical garden
of the Linnea which is the most
famous and complete rock garden in
the world, according to Prof. Aubrey
Tealdi of the landscape design depart-
ment. This garden is visited annually

traveling abroad.
He is the owner of the Alpine gar-
dens of acclimatization at Floraire,
near Geneva, Switzerland, where ex-
periments are constantly being car-
ried out with alpine plants with a
view to enriching the available flora
for rock gardens, over the northern
hemisphere. With the aid of the Al-
pine club M. Correvon formed the as-
sociation "Pro Motibus" for the pro-
tection of the native flora of the sec-
tion, and another particularly for the
protection of wild flowers. He has
been president of the latter society
for 25 years.
Last year he was awarded the gold
medal of tie Royal Horticultural so-
ciety (England) and has been honor-
ed by more than 40 societies in France
Italy, and Switzerland. T3is is M.
Correvon's first visit to Americal. He
is the author of a number of books
on Alpine plants and gardens.

WASHINGTON, March 2.-Colonel
E. M. House was vigorously assailed
today in the Senate by Senatori Mc-
Kellar, Democrat, Tennessee, for pub-
lication of his papers disclosing his
relations with Woodrow Wilson.
The Senator accused Colonel House
of "betraying" the war president and
with undertaking to show that "he
was only a puppet in the hands of this
unknown Colonel from Texas."
Declaring that Colonel House had
shown tIe "basest ingratitude," Sena-
Sto McKellar sait he resented the
Colonel's writings "in the name of the
great man who is dead and unable to
answer them."

licking proclivities," Senator MKel~-

to Wilson and is now undertaking to
show that his benefactor was not a
great man."

LONDON, March 2.-Finding him-t
self in conflict with a nation as as
whole, Sir Austin Chamberlain, for-
eign secretary is said to have made
a rather belated retreat from what1
was considered an impossible position
and, according to information in an -c
authoritative quarter, has agreed tol
accept the government view that the
coming meeting of the League at Ge-1
neva has no other purpose than the'
election of Germany to a permanent f
seat in the council. ,

mise to secure the council's assentt
to the appointment of a special com-
mission to study the claims of Poland,r

So far as Great Britain is involved
the crisis may be considered ended. I
But that does not mean that the Ge- t
neva difficulty has been solved. The
Locarno methods, which Sir Austin
advocated, will possibly be more than
ever necessary, for France and Italy,
finding that they have lost the sup-
port of the British foreign secretary,.

although Sweden and the countries r
supporting Sweden can veto the Span-
ish-Polish claims, there is still a pos-
sibility of some actiongon the part oft

Germany to withdraw her application.
Chamberlain is still said to favor a
compromise giving Spain a seat pro-
viding Germany can be induced to
agree. Both Belgium and Japan favor
postponing Poland's claim until later,
but it is understood that the delega-
tions of these countries will have no
precise instructions.

Wheeler Prefers Committee Investiga
tion' In Preference To
Present System
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, March 2.-The pub-
ic has made up its mind for or
against prohibition and a general in-
vestigation of the subject would have
little effect, in the opinion of Secre-
tary Mellon. He does not share the
belief of Assistant Secretary Andrews,
in.charge of prohibition enforcement,
that inquiry by a presidential com-
mission would impress the people and
assist the dry forces.
Mr. Andrews expressed hope that
the inquiry begun Monday by the
[louse alcoholic liquor traffic commit-
tee, would lead to a recommendation
for appointment of the commission,
but his superior believes the public
now knows the facts concerning pro-
hibition and that it has access to all
the Information which might be as-
sembled by any commission.
The prohibition inforcement chief
will be the first witness called by the
Houseconmmittee, probably next Mon-
day, and Chairman Hudson has indi-
cated that the assistant secretary's
proposal for an investigation may be
adopted after the committee has com-
pleted its preliminary inquiry.
Wayne B. Wheeler, general counsel
for the Anti-Saloon league would pre- -
fer that the committee do what in-
vestigating is decided upon rather
than leave it to a presidential com-
mission. The House committee is
making an inquiry, he said, in a state-
ment, "and this is all that will be
done at this session."
Robert D. Gibson, '23 represent-
ative of the Aetna Insurance com-
pany, will hold office hours from 8 to

Class Memorial fund.
The memorial fund is to be in the
form of a twenty-year endowment in-
surance policies in the Aetna Insur-
ance company. Members of the senior
literary class will be asked to take
out policies for $250 which will be
made payable to the 1926 Literary
Class Memorial fund. Premiums will
be paid at the rate of $10 a year.

regime il the opinion of Mario Ber-

party and one of the leading members

Whispered gossippings about Pre-

between the factions of the Fascist

prince and numerous other questions,
he declared, serve to strengthen rath-
er than weaken the Fascist regime.
"It is a necessary experience," he
says, "that Fascism, so rich in teach-
