Chicago Mayor
Takes Part In
Dry inquisition
(By Associated Press)f
WASHINGTON, April 22.-A mayor,
a temperance leader, a former bar-
tender, and two United States sena-
tors were the principal characters in
a swift-moving drama today -before
the Senate prohibition comlnittee.
The central figure was Senator Reed,
Democrat, Missouri, who clashed with
his colleagues time and again, vigor-
ously cross-examined witnesses and
characterized as fanatics and fools
those who laughed at his declaration
that he was not on either side of the
wet and dry controversy.
Another figure bulking large in the
proceedings was Mayor Dever, of Chi-
cago, who appeared at his own request
to dispute what he regarded as as-
persions cast on the Chicago police
by District Attorney Olson of Chicago,
in testimony before the committee.

(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, April 22. - The
American debt commission will re-
sume negotiations tomorrow with
France for the refunding of its debt,
with a motion pending in the Senate
to reconsider its ratification yesterday
of the Italian agreement.
Ambassador Berenger who has been
given full power by France to nego-
tiate a settlement, will meet with the
commission. He has been in confer-
ence with Secretary Mellon for sever-
al weeks on the question and treasury
officials were confident tonight that
an early agreement could be reached.
Action on a motion by Senator Reed,
Iemocrat, Missouri, to reconsider
ratification of the Italian settlement
was deferred. ,.While Senator Smoot,
Republican, Utah, sought in vain for
an agreement for a vote tomorrow on
reconsideration, early action on the
motion was expected by leaders.
It is thIe plan of leaders to press for
ratification of five other debt fund-
ing agreements pending in the Senate
which have been approved by the
House. These include settlements
with elgium, Rumania, sthonia,
Latvia and Czecho-Slovakia.
Spring Games, Track Meet And Sunday
Morning Convoatio Will Form
Nucleus Of rrograim
Plans for Mothers' Week-end, May
7-9, which promise to make it one of
the most successful of its kind, are
lbeing completed by a committee under
the sponsorship of the Student Chris-
tian association, according to Robert
J. Brown, '26, chairman of the co-
mittee. Responses to a letter sent to
all fraternities and sororities by the
committee indicate that more than 35
houses will co-operate by having
house-parties over that week-end.
The campus events which take
place on that week-end, such as the
tug-of-war on Friday afternoon, the
Spring games and Michigan-Ohio
State track meet on Saturday, and the
convocation on Sunday morning, form
the nucleus of a program which
should be of interest to all mothers.
I The special features which the com-
mittee has planned are: reserving a
section at the Mimes productions on
Friday and Saturday nights for visit-
ing mothers and their sons and
daughters, a tour of the campus which
will include all the points of interest,
and a faculty-student tea on Saturday
afternoon in the main ballroom of the
Union. At this affair, opportunity will
be presented for the mothers to meet
many members of the faculty.
Some of these features are tenta-
tive as yet since a definite expression
of co-operation has not been secured
from some of the houses. The com-
mittee requests that all students,
whether in fraternities, sororities,
league houses or private residences,
make some effort to have their
mothers come to Ann Arbor for that

70,000 Seats Will Meet A proval;
New A thletic BodyWill
Handle Problem
Construction of a new University football stadium, with no definite
limit on the seating capacity and all the details left to the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Athletics, was authorized by the Board of
Regent5 last night. The report adopted declared that, in the opitlion
of the Regents, a stadium of 70,000 seats "would not be objectionable.'
With the single provision that "stadium construction should be
so handled as 'not to overdo it' ", the entire problem was left to the
present Board in Control of Athletics, headed by Coach Fielding H.
Yost, and to its successor, a new board in control created. last night,
which will go into office on May i. The new board is to consist of two
students, three alumni and nine faculty representatives.

Seek Faculty Interest
The new board was created by the
Regents in order to provide more fac-
ulty representation and interest in
the control of University athletics,
because of the development of physi-
cal education as a part, of university
work and because of the "growing
recognition that athletics, as a whole,
is becoming more and more an inte-
gral part of college life." Of the nine
faculty representatives, the President
of the University and the director of
intercollegiate athletics are to be per-
manent members;. the other seven are
to be appointed by the President.
Two members will represent the.
undergraduates, one to be chosen each
year from the junior class and to'
serve for two years. This student
member will be selected at the regu-
lar all-campus elections in May.
The three alumni members of the
Board, appointed last night were:
'Tom Hammond, who played fullback
on the Michigan football team in 1903,
'04, and '05, and was placed by Yost
on his all-time Michigan football
team; Charles DuCharme, '06; and1
James E. Duffy, '92L.j
Refer To Day Report
The other questions discussed in the
Day report, adopted by the University
Senate in January, and concerned with
the development of intramural ath-
letics, physicala'education and like
matters, were all expressly delegated
to this new board, with instructions;
to "formulate and submit plans as
expeditiously as possible to give full
force and effect to the recommenda-
tions in the so-called Day report."
The Regents expressed their appre-
ciation of the work done by the old
athletic board, which will go out of
office next week, in the following
"The Board in Control of Intercol-
legiate Athletics as it is now consti-
tuted has functioned well and splen-
didly for years. We have heard no
criticism of this group or of this sys-
tem, nor is any pointed out in the re-
port in question. (The Day report)
Their work has been peculiarly con-
structive and their affairs have been
handled with the keenest appreciation
of the best ideals of intercollegiate
sport. Our wonderful athletic facili-
ties and athletic plant . . . stand
as a perpetual monument to the con-
structive, unselfish work of the mem-
bers of the Board in Control of Inter-
collegiate Athletics as this board has
been constituted for recent years."
Thank Investigation' Group
The Regents also expressed their
appreciation of "the painstaking char-
acter and splendid presentation of the
subject" as embodied in the report of
the athletic situation submitted to the
University Senate by a committee
headed by Dean Edmund E. Day of
the School of Business Administra-
tion. The report adopted by the Re-
I gents followed, with a few exceptions,
the recommendations proposed by this
"Because of the growing apprecia-
tion of the proper needs of physical
education," the Regents declared that
steps should be taken at once to pro-
vide compulsory physical education
and exercises for at least the first two
years of all students, men and women,

Coach Fielding H. Yost, who
is on the Board in Control of
Intercollegate Athletics, wh'ich
j will formulate the plans for a
new football stadiumi,'as author-
ized by the Board of Regents,
declared when questioned last
night that he could make no
statement regarding stadium
construction until he had read
Ithe report. His statement will
be released today.
It is thought thait a meetihg of ,.
the Board in Control of Athletics
will becalled at once to consider
plans for the new athletic plant.
Yost Purchases Land
Deeds for the last available bit of
land between Ferry field and the cam-
pus were obtained today 'by Coach
Fielding H-. Yost, director of intercol-
legiate athletics for the' expansion of
the athletic department. The deeds
were for a parcel of land almost as
large as a football field adjoining the
site of the Coliseum, purchased last
year as a winter sport pavilion.
The purchase of the land gives the
athletic department almost five acres,
two blocks from the corner of the
campus, available for tennis courts,
new buildings or any other use that
the expanding program of the Univer-
sity may decide upon.
The land is separated from Ferry
field proper only by the athletic field
of the local high school and is being
made very desirable by the installa-
tion of a new drainage system for
that part of town.
Coach Yost has notyet decided upon
the use to which th; land will be put,
but indicated that because of its near-
ness to the campus, either the pro-
posed minor sports building or tennis
courts were under consideration.
Freshmen Will Be
Examined Again
Dr. George A. May, director of
Waterman gymnasium, announced
that beginning today a second exami-
nation and measurement of all fresh-
men will be started. All freshmen
are requested to arrange for it by
calling at the Waterman gymnasiuni
office between 2 and 5 o'clock any
Freshmen are requested to bring
the chart of measurements inde in
the entrance examination last fall.

phone at the State street book stores.
