WASHINGTON, April 3.-Losing no
time after pronouncement of President
Coolidge's views on the subject, the,
state department today began prepa-
ration of a note formally declining the
League of Nations invitation for Amer-
ican participation in the Geneva con-
ference, which is to consider reserva-
tions to the World court protocol. ±
The note, which will go forward to
the American legation at Berne,
judged on the basis of the definite
views of President Coolidge and Sec-
retary Kellogg, will point out that, in
the opinion of the Washington au-
thorities, notuseful purpose could be
accomlished by sending as delegation
to Geneva, since it would be lacking in
authority to discuss the reservations
attachedby the Senate.
Furthermore, it is virtually certain
thiat the note will point out that the
state diepartnment already is in direct
negotiations with the 48 governments
signatory to the court protocol and is'
satisfied to rely upon that method of

Date Changed
For University
fRadio Program
Due to the fact that a large number
of faculty members of the University
are attending the fourth annual Grid-i
iron Knights banquet Tuesday night
at the Union, it was found necessary
to postpone the regular University
radio broadcasting program, accord-
ing to the announcement made last
night by Waldo Abbot of 'the rhetoric
department, manager of the radio pro-
Mr. Abbot stated that, in attempting
to arrange the program, he found that
so ma-ny members of the faculty were
planning to attendlthe Gridiron ban-
q uet, it was inmpossible to secure a.
satisfactory program for that night.
The program, instead, will be given
Tuesday night, April 27.
Tickets for the Gridiron banquet
were mailed last night to the 250
guests. Due to the fact that a few
failed to give their addresses when
returning their acceptances, some
tickets could not be sent out. Thesej
may be obtained at the assembly hall
door before the banquet.
The program Tuesday night will
start promptly at 7 o'clock.

Beginning with a contribution of
$84.50 from the '28 literary class, the

from a geology group in the class of
'28, and a gift of $150 has been re- I
ceived from the Student council this I
year, the receipts from a series of l
letures especially for the Burton

fund this year have not all be record-
ed, but it is understood that the grad-

LOS ANGELES, April 3.-Mild
earth tremors were felt in sev-
eral sections of Southern Cali-
fornia between 12:08 and 12:09

The earth movement was of a
1 few seconds duration and was
generally in a north and south

felt it.
M Henry, Strauss And Wife Unable
To Secure Temliorary Freedom;
He ld in Jail
Robert L. McHenry, Jr., auditor of
the local Butterfield theaters, Alex-
ander P. Strauss, formerly leader of
the Majestic theater orchestra, and
his wife Thelma Strauss, were being
held in the county jail yesterday after
failure to produce bail of $5,000 in the
ease of MHenry and $4,000 each for
the other two.
The trio, who were arrested as par-
ticipants in the fake holdup of the
Majestic theater qn the afternoon of
March 8 and their escape with the
wek'end proceeds from the Butter-
field theaters, were arraigned before
Justice John D. Thomas yesterday. A
charge of embezzlement was placed
against McHenry, whose confession to
officers Thursday night led to the ap-
prehension of Mr. and Mrs. Strauss.
They were charged with larceny.
Waiving examination, all three were
held for, trial in circuit court before
Judge George W. Sample. Their case
will probably be heard in the court
during this week, it was said.
Mrs. Strauss was the last to make
a confession, both McHenry and
Strauss signing written statements
soon after their arrest. After the re-
turn of Thomas O'Brien, chief of po-
lice, and Sgt. Frank Keihl, from De-
troit Friday night with $2,300 which
had been deposited there in the Dime
Savings bank and so verifying the
confessions, Mrs. Strauss signified her
desire to tell what she knew of the
affair. Such'a statement was made to
Sergeant Keihl yesterday morning.
With the $750 taken from Mc-
Henry's room, a total of $3,050 has
been recovered, and the balance will
be paid the Butterfield Theatrical
company by the bonding company. ,
The story of Mrs. Strauss corre-
sponded closely to that of her hus-
band and the auditor, although she de-
nied McHenry's assertion that she and
Mr. Strauss had quarreled several
times, and that she intended leaving
him and going to Paris. She also said
that his statement that a Detroit gam-
bler, who changed the silver and bills
into large denomination money for
her, was paid $100 for his services,
was false.
Various Issues At Stake; Additona
Names Voted On Under New iPlan
City elections in Ann Arbor will be
held tomorrow with the polls in each
ward open from 7 to 8 o'clock, east-
ern standard time. Because of the
failure of the city to hold ward pri-
maries, as is required by a new state
law, the names of candidates for sup-

ervisors, aldermen, and constables
from the different wards will be with-
Both parties, in most cases, have un-
official candidates, and electors may
vote for them by the use of stickers
which will be available near the poll-
ing places, or by writing the name of
the candidates in the blank spaces for
that purpose. To nake either % f

University ,High School Boys Includ-
ed; Lack Of Patronage Is
Cause Of Measure
Because of the fact that the Union
swimming pool is not being patronized
by undergraduate members of the Un-
ion as much as had been expected, the
board of directors, in session yester-
day afternoon, adopted a resolution
whereby the pool will be open to Un-
iversity women three mornings and
one evening each week. The measure
further provided that wives and
daughters of life members residing
in Ann Arbor and elsewere, be al-
lowed to use the pool during the hours
for women, and that boys attending
the University high school be permit-
ted to swim there one morning every
he action taken by the board of di-
rectors yesterday culminated a series
of attempts made during the past few
months to find a solution for the prob-
lem of encouraging students to use the
pool enough to defray the expense of
its unkeep. As an additional incentive
yesterday the board also moved to
reduce the price of a swim to ten
cents instead of twenty-five.
Is Temporary Measure
According to the resolution that
was adopted, the new privileges will
be accorded to the women and high
school boys only so long as they do
not interfere with the use of the pool
by men. As soon as the demand for
the use of the pool becomes great
enough on the part of Union members,
the women's privileges wil be wth--
drawn, The pool will be s0pened to
the women as soon as a satlsfactory
schedule, and other details, are ar-
ranged with Dr. Margaret Bell, pro-
fessor of physical education for wo-
men, who, with Coach Matt Mann of
the Varsity swimming team, will su-
pervise the women's use of the pool.
It is unlikely that this can be accom-
plished before spring vacation, Coach
Mann said yesterday.
In discussing the swimming pool
problem before the Union directors at
yesterday's meeting, Coach Mann
pointed out that the pool has never
been opened to Union members be-
fore 11 o'clock inthe morning, and,
for this reason, the women, whose
use of the pool will not extend later.
than this hour in the morning, will
in no way affect the men's privileges.
He also asserted that only a few Un-
ion members use their swim privil-
ege at night.
Mann Olves Reasons.
"Almost every other university in
the country allows women the use of
its pool, if there 'is only one avai-
able," Coach Mann told the directors,
"and athletic clubs throughout- the
country extend the same privileges.
"Members of the Union, especially
undergraduates, do not use the pool
enough to meet expenses," Mann con-
tinued in discussing the situation
here, "while, at the same time, women
students have nothing approaching ad-
equate facilities for their swimming
It was agreed yesterday that the
use of the pool by women will in no
way make their presence necessary in
other parts of the building, and that a
private entrance to the pool can prob-
ably be employed.
As to those members holding swim-

ming books or coupons, purchased re-
cently, William L. Diener, '26, presi-
dent of the Union, said yesterday that
some plan of financial readjustment
will be formulated at once in view of
the new ten cent rate, and that in all
probability a rebate will be given
these students.
T The Resolution -
The resolution, as introduced yes-
terday is as follows:
"It is moved that the swimming
pool be opened to University wo-
men, immediate families of mem-
bers of the Union, and boys of the
University high school; provided,
the use of the pool by women
does not interfere with the use by
men, and as soon as the demand
for the use of the pool on the part
of the men grows strong enough,
this privilege shall be withdrawn.
Further, women shall be extend-

(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, April 3.--Congress
was warned today by William Hirth,
chairman of the Corn Belt conference,;
that farmers were expecting the Re-
publican and Democratic parties to
live up to their platform pledges for
farm relief legislation.
Appearing before the Senate agri--
culture, committee, he declared the
time has passed "when the farmers
calm be led around by the nose." He
said there must be no side stepping
and added that if they cannot get a
bill of real value, they prefer to be
sent away empty handed.
Demands for farm legislation also
was made on the Senate floor by Sen-
ator Robinson, Republican, Indiana,
who called on the Senate to establish
a definite farm policy at once and ad-
here to it. "It is unthinkable," be
declared, "for the session to end with-
out legislation."
A plan is being considered by some
nmeml)ers of the farm bloc to have a
relief bill attached as ain amendment
to the administration cooperative mea-
sare that has passed the House and
- pending before the Senate agricul-
ture committ e. If this is done, it as
claimed the amended bill could te
sent to conference without going to
the IHouse.
