lerriot, Socialist Leader Refuses
Post. Reinstated Premier
Names Ministers
(By Associated Press)
GENEVA, March 9-A sudden con-
Rultation between Sir Austen Cham-
berlain, British foreign secretary and
Chancellor Luther and b)r. Strese-
mann, of the German delegation, im-
mediately after receipt of the news
from Paris that M. Briand had agreed
to form a new cabinet, was the most
striking development tonight in the
League of Nations council meeting.
From German sources emanated
the renort that in order to remove the
council from the hands of the signa-
tories of the Rhine pact and eliminate
possible discontent of other members
of the league on the grounds that the
Rhine signatories were assuming too
much responsibility, the British for-
eign secretary was anxious to arrange
an unofficial meeting between the
members of the council and the Ger-
Chamberlain Forsalls Crisis
In the meantime the assembly lead-,
ers headed by Sir Austen Chamberlain
succeeded in staving off embarrassing
complications by obtaining immediate
adjournment of the sub-committee
which had been appointed to investi-
gate Germany's application for league
membership. The rules require the
presence of the German delegations to
respond to any questions to whether
Germany has been fulfilling her in-
ternational obligations.
"In view of the fact that the Ger-
mans have expressed their determi-
nation not to enter the league until
assured they can enter the council
with permanent membership unac-
companied by others, the leaders did
riot wish to put Germany n the posi-
tion of having to refuse to appear be-
fore the investigating committee."
Interest in the unsettled council
crisis wandered momentarily tonight
to the question as to whether Geneva
will be definitely selected as the home
of the League of Nations. The as-
sembly must vote credits for the erec-
tion of the proposed assembly hall
but the still unsolved conflict between
Switzerland and Russia over the Vo-
rovsky affair had caused some of the
delegates to consider whether the
league should not be established in a
communty which would enjoy clearly
defned extra-territorial rights.-
The problem came up at a confer-1
ence between Lord Cecil and repre-
sentatives of the British dominions.
A delegate of one of the dominions
suggested the desirability of the cre-
ation of a definite territory similar to
the District of Columbia which would
render impossible the interferences of
conflicts between the country which
was the seat of the league and other

M. Briand has accepted President
Domergue's invitation to form a ca-
binet and he has alreday advanced
so far as to choose all his ministers
except that man who is to take charge
of the delicate financial situation.
President Consults Ilerriot

The cabinet crisis resolved rapidly1
today. President Domergue ex-
hausted all sources of information by
noon and immediately summoned
Edouard Herriot, former socialist
premier to offer him the premiership.
The leader of the radical party be-
lieved that this was merely courtesy
to the head of that party and he
promptly declined. He recommended
that M. Briand be asked once more to
form a new government. M. Herriot
told M. Domergue that it was neces-
sary to send Briand back to the coun-
cil and the League of Nations with
all the authority he had when the
Locarno pact was negotiated, and the
president of the republic passed this
idea on to M. Briand when he called
at Elysees Palace soon afterward.
Furthermore the president informed
him that it was his duty to stick by
the ship until all financial questions
were solved and the franc was saved.
The outgoing premier who had en-
joyed one good night's rest in four
dlays and had already recovered his
spirits abandoned hope of being abl

night outlined a complete inland wat-

and said he believed a nine foot chan-

of the lake level disputes by spending
money "on concrete and steel rather

He addressed the 32nd annual ban-

Conprises Second Lecture In School
Of Relig'ion Series On Moral
Issues Of Modern Life
Dr. Galen M. Fisher of New York
city, noted authority on Japan, will
discuss "The Far-Eastern Question in
its Relation to Japan", at 4:15 o'clock
Thursday, March 11 in Room C, Law
building. Dr. Fishers lecture wll
comprise the second number of the
current series, offered by the Michi-
gan School of Religion in connection
with Prof. Charles T. Paul's seminar
in the moral issues of modern life.
The coming lecture is designed as a
sequel to the recent address of Dr.
Paul Hutchinson, on China.
Professor Paul in commenting on the
speaker said, "Dr. Fisher is an ex-
perienced and eminent authority on
Japan, and is particularly competent
to discuss the moral problems arising
from the modern development of Jap-
anese nationalism, and from the im-
portant place the Empire holds in in-
ternational relations, especially with
America. A keen student of the im-
migration question, he will doubtless

secretary of the Young Men's Chris-
tian Association in 1897 following
graduation from the University of
California, and Harvard.I He has
spent 20 years in the Empire, en-
gaged in religious and educational
work, with headquarters at Tokyo.
Under his direction the Association
established branches in 13 cities, and
at 25 student centers, including the
leading Japanese universities. He de--
veloped a Student's summer assembly
at the base of the Sacred Mount Fuji,
comparable to the American Lake
In 1918 Dr. Fisher was one of the
organizers of the National Christian
Council of Japan, a cooperative union
of all Christian agencies, Japanese
and foreign, at work in the Empire.
He was a director of the Christian
Literature society and is famous in
Japan as a linguist, translator of
works into Japanese, and contributor
to Japanese magazines.
"Dr. Fisher," Professor Paul said,
"through his acquaintance with Japan-
ese leaders, is among the foremost
promoters of amicable relations be-
tween Japan and the United States."

lay in the Mimes theater, will, ac-
cording to its producers, present its
audience with the amusing situation,
of a triple burlesque. Parody settings,
a barnyard for a parlor; costumes in
keeping with the settings; and gruff
bass voices to represent the sopranos

sons, embracing four women char-
acters, is entirely composed of men,
not with the intention of imitation,

Ambassador Insists That Religiousc
Policy Not Interfere Witht
American ChurchmenI
(By Associated Press)f
WASHINGTON, March 9.-Mexico's
new policy governing religious teach-
ings has brought forth a note fromE
Ambassador Sheffield to the Mexican
war office insisting that American
churchmen should not be made to
suffer unduly from its operations. c
The note was prepared by the am-
bassador after he had received in-I
structions from the state department
as to the American attitude and ad-a
vices that it had been delivered, came
coincident with efforts in the Senate
to force government departments to
furnish information to that body on
questions affecting American relations
with the southern republic.
Threatened arrest in Vera Cruz
state of the Rev. F. J. Krill, an Amer-
ican Catholic priest was the immedi-
ate case taken up by Ambassador
Sheffield and he reported that it had
been "satisfactorily settled," although
the nature of the settlement was not'
disclosed. It. was indicated that au-
thorities of Jalata were inclined to
allow the priest to remain in Mexico.
The ambassador's purpose in pre-
senting a note to the Mexican govern-
ment was largely to put the Wash-
ington government on record. The
document is believed to concede Mex-
ico's right to expel churchmen, but at
the same time to make clear the be-

WASHINGTON, March 9.-Congress
today approved appointment of a joint
committee to negotiate sides for a
private leasing of Muscle Shoals. A
resolution drafted to carry out a
recommendation of President Coolidge
and already adopted by the House
was accepted by the Senate, 51 to 26,
and sent to conference.
The Senate added two amendments.
One, by Senator Caraway, Democrat,
Ark., would require that surplus
power developed at the big war-time
project be distributed equally to
states adjoining Alabama. The other,
by Senator Lenroot, Republican, Wis.,
would give the proposed joint com-
mittee until April 26 to submit a pro-
posal to Congress for lease of the
project, instead of April 1, as voted
by the House.
Proponents of the resolution, led by
Senator Heflin, Democrat, Ala., fought
vigorously for its adoption without
amendment to avoid the necessity of

sylvania legislature, is coming to Ann
Arbor under the auspices of the
Round Table club
For the past 24 years, Mr. Maurer
has been a member of the Socialist
party, though he first joined the So-
cialist labor party 28 years ago. With
but two exceptions he has been a dele-
gate to every national convention that
the Socialist party have held. In 1906,
he was the Socialist party's candidate
for governor of Pennsylvania. In
1910, 1914, and 1916, he was elected to
the General Assembly of Pennsylvania.
As a legislator, he was associated with
the introduction of bills such as the
Workman's Compensation Act, old age
assistance, mothers' pensions, pen-
sions for the blind, home rule for
cities, factory inspection, and other
labor measures. In 1917, Gornor
Brumbaugh appointed Mr. Maurer to
the chairmanship of the State old age
assistance committee, to which posi-
tion he was reappointed by Governor
Sproul in 1920 and by Governor Pin-
chot In 1923 and 1925.

Mr. Maurer was a member of the
American commission on conditions in
Ireland in 1920, and three years later
made a tour of Europe with the
American seminar under the direction
of Sherwood Eddy.

the labor movements, Mr. Maurer has
lectured in many of the states in the
Union, and has contributed articles to
newspapers and magazines, such as
Hearsts', Atlantic Monthly, The Na-
tion, and the New York American.
In addition to his talk at 4:15
o'clock this afternoon, Mr. Maurer will
speak at a luncheon and three class-
es in the University today. He will

Members of the Lawyer's club held
their second smoker of the year last
night in the lounge room of the club.
The club members and their guests,
the Law school faculty, were address-
ed by Prof. Herbert F. Goodrich and
Dean Henry M. Bates of the. Law
school, who treated upon some of the
recent trends in legal education and
the rise in importance of the Law
schools of the country.
Judge Frank Murphy of Detroit,
who was to have addressed the club,
was unable to be present due to the
critical illness of his father. He stat-
ed in a telegram that he would be very
willing to speak before the Lawyer's
club at a future date. In his absence
Prof. Goodrich spoke, tracing some of
the more recent developments in legal
education. He called attention to the
change in the study of law from the
old "rule and regulation" method to
the more modern study by case. Pro
Goodrich emphasized the importance
of the Law schools in interpreting and
formulating opinion upon legal prob-
lems existing today.

Dean Bates touched upon the value
of adequate and selective preparation
in the study of case law and showed
how its value increased with business
legal problems. He spoke especially
of the worth of scientific research to
the lawyer.
