Obstruction Tactics Used By Certain
Powers Are Frankly Criticized
By Stresemnaun
(1y Associated Press)
BERLIN, March 22.-The League of
Nations has been plunged into a grave
crisis by the breakdown of the league I
negotiations for Germany's election,
Foreign Minister Gustav Stresemanu
declared in a governmental statement
to the Reichstag today..
He frankly criticized the obsrtuc-
tionist tactics employed by certain
powers at Geneva in keeping Germany
from the council seat promised her at
He told the Reichstag that Germany
reserves the right to withdraw her
application for entry into the league
in the event the decision of the new
commission regarding reconstruction
of the council does not correspond
with Germany's expectations.
"The outcome of the past negotia-
tions must be deeply deplored, because
the chief mourner, after all, is the
league itself," he said. "Whether we
consider the league an efficient instru-
ment for the promulgation of peace
and the promotion of humanitarian
ideals, or whether we recognize in it
a newly invented diplomatic contri-
vance calculated to further the special
interests of individual states, the fact
remains that as a result of the events
in Geneva, the league has suffered i)n
both directions."
The adherents of the league, the
foreign minister said, should have
subordinated all other considerations
to the formalities of receiving Ger-
many into membership.
With the engagement of Cook's
Casino Garden orchestra of Chicago
plans for the Varsity band formal to
be held Friday at the Masonic temple
are nearly completed.
* As at last year's affair, a special
score of the "Victors," arranged for
orchestration by Capt. Wilfred Wil-
son, director of the band, has been
t sent the orchestra, and this number
will be used for the grand march.
The leaders of the grand march wili
be Edward Hoedemaker, '29M, chair-
man of the general committee and
Miss Gertrude Theurer, of Three
Rivers, Michigan. Members of the
band will wear the maize and' blue

band capes during the grand march,
It is expected that there will be a
larger attendance than usual this

issued have been accepted. The
patrons and patronesses of the affair
will be Mayor Robert A. Campbell and
Mrs. Campbell, Captain and Mrs. Wil-

Wets And Drys Will Be Held Strictly
To Subject Of Bill At Issue a
During hearing
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, March 22.-The pro-
hibition issue which has agitated both
houses of Congress at this session as
has no other question, is to be given a
public airing before the Senate com-
mittee during the two weeks begin- I
ning April 5.
This was (determined upon today by
the Senate judiciary committee, which
approved with but a single dissenting
vote the program recommended by its
sub-committee of five for hearing on
the pending measures for modification
of the dry law.
Have i Days Apiece
Senator Means, Republican, Colo-
rado, will have charge of the hearing
and he will attempt to hold both the
"wets" and "drys" strictly to the sub-
ject of the bills at issue. Each side
will have six days for the presenta-
tion of its case with the "wets" taking
the stand first.
Besides approving the program for
the hearing, the committee endorsed
the action of the sub-committee in in-
definitely postponing consideration of
a bill by Senator Edwards, Democrat,
New Jersey, for repeal of the Volstead
act. This measure was pigeonholed,
it was explained, because its passage
would leave the government without
authority to enforce the dry constitu-
tional amendment.
The first measure that will be con-
sidered will be that by Senator Bruce,
Democrat, Maryland, proposing to
change the Eighteenth amendment so
that those states and communities
which were wet when the dry law
went into effect again would be wet,
but would have to depend upon thel
federal government for their limited
supply of intoxicants.
Then the beer bills and the Edge
measure to remove the restrictions on
prescription whiskey will have theirI
inning. There are three beer bills
proposing 4 per cent, 2:75 per cent,
and beer "non-intoxicating in fact."
Senator Edwards is tie author of the
first, and( Senator Edge, .Republican,
New Jersey, fostered. the other two.
SolicA Opinions

(By Associated Press)!
WASHINGTON, March 22. - The
Senate 'got itself into an inquisitive
frame of mind today on the European
Ambassador Houghton's observa-
tion to newspaper correspondents,
painting a rather gloomy picture of
conditions overseas, formed the basisf
of more than an hour's debate with
Chairman Borah, of the foreign rela-
tions committee, and Senator Ha-r-
rison, Democrat, Mississippi, as the
central figures.
Half a dozen other senators parti-
cipated and there was both plainly
spoken criticism and vigorous defense
of the American ambassador to the
court of St. James.
At one point, Senator Glass, Demo-
crat, Virginia, lightened the weighty

dscussion by demanding that there
be "no secret agreement" among sen-
ators. He referred to a brief whis-
pered conference between Senator
Moses,, Republican New Hampshire,
and Senator Borah during a colloquy
between the Idaho and Virgina sen-
Senator Borah had made a point
of "secret agreements" among the
European powers at the time of the
Locarno public agreement ^and de-
clared that these were responsible in
large measure for present conditions
in Europe.
The chairman of the foreign rela-I
tions committee gave it as his opinion
that when Brazil "defied" the other
nation's and blocked Germany's entry
into the League of Nations she had
silent support from the great powers.

Decisions Cancelling Leases And Con-
tracts Which Doheny Negotiated
With Fall Involved
(By Associated Press)
WAShINGTON, March 22.--The Su-
premne court agreed today to review
lower court decisions cancelling the
oil leases and contracts which Edward
L. Doheny negotiated with Albert 1.
Fall as secretary of the interior.
Involved in the case are the Elkj
Hill naval oil reserves in California
and the contract between Doheny'.;
companies and the government, by
wl-icf the oil magnate has construct-;
ed huge oil reserve tanks for the
navy at the Hawaiian naval base at
Pearl harbor.
While agreeing on cancellation, the
district court and the circuit court in
California disagreed on the questionI
of compensation for the storage tanks.
The district court allowed $10;000,000.
Besides this question the Supreme
court is expected to go into all phasesj
of the case, and particularly that as
to the legality of the executive order
issued by President Harding, in effect
transferring jurisdiction over the
naval oil reserves from the navy to
the interior department.

Easterner Points To Accomplishmets
Of International Body To
Justify Contentios
Declaring that the development of
a feeling which would "cause us to
look upon ourselves as a part of the
world, the building of an imagination
encompassing the problems of peace,
and the elimination of selfishness"
would be the only things that would
help toward world peace, rather than
a League of Nations, Clarence Darrow
opposed the emtrance of the United
States into the league in his debate
with Manley 0. Hudson on that ques-
tion last night in Hill auditorium.
Dr. Hudson advocated the United
States' entry into the league on the
grounds that there was already a
"world league" on questions of agri-
culture, problems of public health,
and in matters of communication, that
the league already had six years of
successful operation, that 55 nations
have thought it the best means of
solving world problems, and that it
is not passible for the United States
to keep out of the world questions.
Professor Hudson, holder of the
'Traces League Idea
Bemis professorship at Harvard, at
present a member of the legal staff
of the Secretariat of the League of
Nations, and long a champion of the
league, opened the debate with a 30
minute speech in which he traced the
growth of the league idea and treated
of its work. le mentioned the or-
ganization of the Universal Postal
Union and the International Union of
Weights and Measures as being "the
first great" leagues of nations of 50
years ago. He then spoke of the work
of the International Institute of Agri-
culture and of the International In-
stitute of Public Health, formed about
20 years ago. Professor Hudson char-
I acterized them as being "all success-
ful leagues of nations" and then
showed the development of the tra-
dition and habit of calling confer-
ences to settle disputes, and the pre-
ent work of the League in various
m~atters. Professor Hudson concluded
his first talk with the statement that
Ithe league was not a super-state, a
new state, or a sub-state, "but a
mnethod by which 55 nations of the
world today seek to deal with com-
mon problems as they arise."
Mr. Darrow, noted criminal attor-
ney, then answered Dr. Hudson. He
began by asking just "what is the real
nature of the League of Nations" and
characterized it as being "as nebulous
and uncertain as heaven." Mr. Dar-
row in reference to the conference
method of settling disputes, stated
that there had always been confer-
ences but that they had really ac-
complished nothingrin the way of
preventing war. Mr. Darrow main-
tained that the present World court
{ was not binding on the nations and
that no nation would ever arbitrate
anything vital to their existence, that
they never had and never would. He
maintained further that a method by
which world peace could be had was
by organizing all the strong nations
and maintaining peace by coercive
measures. He advocated, as measures
in obtaining world peace, the removal
of the inducing causes such as selfish-
G ness in trade, and the development
of friendly spirit, and more ideas of
internationalism rather than national-

Calls.It Step To Peace
Dr. Hudson then spoke for 30 min-
utes in which he refuted Mr. Dar-
row's arguments and said that he be-
lieved that while the League of Na-
tions might fail in the immediate pre
vention of war he had enough faith
in the efficacy of human effort that
it could not help being a step toward
tter andl freer world of the futumle.
Mr. Darrow then cited the Greco-Bul-
garian trouble of last fall as an
example of the coercive methods of
the, league. He maintained that the
world had grown better by conflict
and that human nature demanded
that men fight.
Dean Hugh Cabot of the Medical
school acted as chairman of the de-
bate which was sponsored by the
local branch of the League of Nations
Non-Partisan association. Following
the debate Dr. Hudson left immedIate-
ly for the East.
