Ministry Falls


French Premier Will Go To Geneva
For Meeting Despite Fall
Of Government
(By Associated Press)
PARIS, March 6.-Aristide Briand's
eighth ministry succumbed at dawn
this morning to what the premier
called "incompatibility of political
temperaments of the groups which
since the success of the "radical so-
cialists coalition" in the election of
1924 have governed France.
That incompatibility which mani-
fests itself particularly in financial
luestions whenever the chamber was
called upon to vote new taxes, was,
no secret, but the overthrow of the
government was a surprise because
one thing on which all the groups in
the chamber had agreed was that
there should be no cabinet crisis now.
Mhiistry Was Short-Lived
Briand's eighth ministry which is
not to be his last, came into power
Nov. 27 and 28 and continued its
existence a little over three months,

Title Depends On Final Game Against
Northwestern In Field House
Tomorrow Night
By Joseph Kruger, Sports Editor
Field goals, scored with a.reckless
abandon in the closing 10 minutes of
the first half, shattered Ohio State's
championship aspirations and placed
Michigan at the threshold of titular
honors, when the inspired Wolverine
five conquered the Buckeyes 44-28 last
nignt at the field house.
Apparently possessed with an utter
disregard for the prowess of the Ohio
team, the Mather quintet went about
its task in a strictly business-like
manner and sent the ball through the
net with such monotonous regularity
that the Conference high score mark
of the season was eclipsed by three
points, Indiana having registered 41
points against Minnesota earlier in
the season.
Varsity Shows iPower
Captain Dick Doyle, Frank Harri-
gan, Ed Reece and Ed Chambers com-
bined their efforts and organized a
sweeping offensive that took the Buck-
eyes by storm. Harrigan counted six
times from the floor in the first period,
and scored two fouls for a total of
14 points. Dick Doyle sent the ball
through the net on five occasions,
while Reece scored four field goals,
and Ed Chambers secured three.
"Cookie" Cunningham, who was
chiefly responsible for Michigan's de-
feat at Columbus, continued on his
scoring spree, counting five times
from scrimmage, and twice from the
fifteen foot line. Hunt also played a
stellar game for the losers, register-
ing four field goals.
Ed Reece wasted no time in getting
started, when he pivoted away from
Captain Seiffer and dribbled in to the
basket for a score before tle game
was a minute old. Hunt followed
with a short shot, but Harrigan sent
Michigan ahead again with a basket
from the center of the court. Cun-
ningham then evened matters again
with an easy basket, but Chambers
shot two free throws, and the Wol-
verines were never headed again.
Michigan' Scores Rapidly
With the score 10-8, Reece, who
dribbled all around the Buckeyes last
night, and Harrigan scored baskets
in rapid succession, and Captain Self-
fer called for time. The rest seemed
to aid Michigan more than Ohio, for
the Wolverines initiated a scoring
rampage immediately upon resuming
For the next seven minutes all of
the scoring was done by the Wolver-
ines, the score changing from 14-8 to
28-8, before a free throw by Cunning-
ham placed a temporary halt to the
dazzling rapidity of baskets. Harrigan
scored three times during this period,
while Chambers counted twice from
time floor and twice from the foul line,
and Doyle scored once.
