Explains Grovth Of Arbitration In
Commiercial Disputes; Lads
Recent Graduates
"Nothing equal to it in the history
of legal education anywhere in the
world" was the characterization given
the gift of William W. Cook, donor of
the Lawyers' club,byDean Henry .
Bates, of the Law school, at the
Founder's day banquet last night, in
the club.
"Not only was it a great gift of
money," he continued, "but a part of
a plan for the development of legal
research of a type far better than
known anywhere at the present" I
Dean Bates voiced the "confident
expectation" that the banquet would
become an annual event, serving as
a testimonial to the founder as well
as a home-coming day for graduates
of the school, many of whom were
in attendance last night.
Thank 31r. Cook
A rising vote of thanks to Mr. Cook
was given by the crowd as a recogni-
tion of its debt to him. A telegram
received from Mr. Cook and read by
Dean Bates said:
"You represent a great idea for
the University, the state, and
nation. It will be followed by
other law schools and profoundly
affect the legal profession. It
will have to be worked out care-
fully and slowly, but it has come
to stay. Success to you-William
W. Cook."
At the close f the evening it was
Intounced that principal speaker,
Justice Marvin B. Rosenberry, '93, of
the supreme court of Wisconsin, had
been elected to honorary membership
in the Lawyers' club.
Praises Law Graduates
Both Justice Rosenberry and Judge
Arthur II. Dennison, '94L,, of Cincin-
nati, who also spoke, praised the law
graduates of recent years, saying that
they surpassed those of the older
The growth of the arbitration prin-
ciple in commercial disptes was dis-
cussed by Justice Rosenberry, who
pointed out that this practice was be-
ing extended so that 75 associations of
trade have placed in their constitu-
tions provisions for compulsory arbi-
tration in disputes arising among their
members. Contracts provide for the
settling of all disputes in this way,
thereby avoiding the lengthy and
often costly litigation in court.
"Our law," the speaker said, "was
founded in a time when the population
was agricultural, and many of its pro-
visions have become inadequate for
the settlement of disputes arising un-
der the present industrial conditions."
Changes are being urged, he con-
tinued, which will bring proper pro-
cedure into the courts, and the com-
mercial arbitration courts will aid in
the reform.

Points Out That Environmental Facts
Are Too Often Subordinated To
Hereditary Influences
Pointing out how the older theories
of heredity almost entirely disregard-,
ed the effect of environment and that
they regarded certain factors, such as,
the polarity and symmetry of an or-
ganism as being inherent in its proto-
plasm, Prof. Charles Manning Child
of the University of Chicago, interna-
tionally known biologist, speaking on
"The Organism and Environment in
the Light of Physiology" last night in
Natural Science auditorium, showed
how conditions outside of the organ-j
ism causes differentiations.
Professor Child confined his proof
to the influences of external agents on
the polarity of the organism. He
showed that as the result of experi-
ments and research, graduations along
the axes of the organism can be ef-
fected by external physical and chem-
ical agents. Illustrating his talk with
lantern slides the lecturer showed the'
specific differences, due to external
factors, that occur in the simple and
complex forms of life. Professor
Child, while not discounting any ef-
fect that heredity might have on the
organism, said in conclusion, "Pri-
marily, the general pattern of the or-
ganism is the result, not only of
heredity, but of heredity plus environ-I
Professor Child is known as an ex-'
perimental zoologist who has been re-
sponsible for many new biological
theories, being especially interested in

which does not remove the violet raysj
from the light of the sun will be ex-

is of special interest at the present
time since the violet ray is thought by
the layman to be a "cure all"; its
value and method of use will be
explained by Dr. Hickey.

(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, April 23.-Prohibition
has increased the efficiency of the
average worker so that he is now
more nearly able to work up to ma-
chine capacity, declared R. H. Scott,1
president of the Michigan Anti-Sa-
loon league, at the state dry conven-
tion here today. "Before prohibition,
Monday was one of the poorest pro-
duction days of the week," he asserted.
"Now it is a full-pover day like other
days of the week."#
Scott spoke on "Prohibition in Busi-
ness." The business man, he declared
judges prohibition in terms of results,
not as a moral issue. "He judges it
from the standpoint of production and
"Efficiency has increased and stead-
ledl. The turnover of labor dropped
with the advent of prohibition and has
remained comparatively low since."
Repudiates Beer Demands t
Scott repudiated the testimony ofl
labor leaders appearing before the
Senate committee investigating prohi-
bition enforcement, that laborers are
demanding beer.
"In Michigan there are 900,000
workers and only 10 per cent are or-
ganized," he declared. "Workmen are
not demandinf beer, in my opinion.
Teicy want a steady job good -workingt

If Gov. Alex J. Grosbeek would take

Dr. Nicholson told the convention
that "the United States government
is not impotent and there is no need
for it to quail before a minority of
nullificationists." He read newspaper
clippings which he said showed there
was bootlegging and "blind pigs" be-
fore the advent of prohibition.
"We simply are dealing with a big
gang of law breakers," he declared.
"They were law breakers before pro-
hibition. Law isn't sacred to them.

night won the annual Adelph'i-Alpha
Nu debate, supporting the negative of
the question: Resolved, that the meth-
od of handling a moral problem as
typified by the 18th Amendment is
wrong in principle. The Oratorical

Nu having woh it twice also. The
I cup goes to the permanent possession

"The action of the Board of Re-
gents in approving the construe-j
tion of a new stadium is cer-
tainly pleasing to me because it
means a great deal in our fu-
ture program for athletics and
physical education at Michiwan.
"A year ago last March, the
Board in Control of Athletics
had completed an exhaustive
study relative to a new football
stadium and had made a report
to the Regents. This report
considered in detail the rela-
tionship of a new stadium to
the general program and the ac-
quisition of additional facilities
for the physical training of stu-
dents, such as more tennis
( courts, a golf course, another
( field house for general activ-
ities, a winter sports pavilion
( and other units in a broad plan.
This report will prove of great
value now, as it takes up in
( detail the matters to be settled
( before actual construction of the
( stadium can be commenced.
I "The stadium will be complet-
ed for the 1927 football season.
( Much of this work must be done
this year. It is planned to con-
struct another field house at the
same time, to be ready for the
1927 college year.
"I do not believe it is advis-
able to call a meeting of the
Board in Control of Athletics as
now constituted, but to wait un-
til the new, enlarged board is
formed, when it is hoped that
an early meeting may be called
and action taken on the propos-
als approved by the Regents."

will be followed the next week by
meetings to consider the exact loca-
tion, size, and design of the stadium.
SWork on the new home of the Wol-
verines will start soon.
Consider Two Sites
The new field house, a general ac-
tivities building, will be erected either
on the site now occupied by the
Iwooden north stands of Ferry field
ox on land ecently acquired by the
athletic association adjacent to the
Coliseum. If the board in control de-
cides to locate the building on the
present site of Ferry field, work will
bYe started as soon as the wooden
stands can. be removed after the foot--
ball season this fall.
This building will provide additional
facilities for basketball courts, hand-
ball courts, squash, indoor tennis and
golf, and additional space for wrest-
ling. With the possible exception of
a stand seating approximately 100
persons in connection with the squash
court, there will be no provision for
seating spectators, as the building is
to be designed only for the use of
those desiring exercise. When ques-
tioned on the purpose of the new field
house and by whom it will be used,
Coach Yost replied that it is* for
"Michigan men-regardless of wheth-
er they are candidates for Varsity
teams, intramural teams, or no teams
at all."
* Just as the building of the Yost
field house provided more space for
general physical education at Water-
I man gymnasium, the Athletic associa-
tion intends this new building to add
to Michigan's equipment in providing
"athletics for all." This movement is
I in accord with the recommendations
for the improvement of such facilities
contained both in the Day report and
the report adopted by the Board of

Single Decked Football Bowl
Located In Valley To Be

In addition to having Michigan's new football stadium, a bowl-
shaped structure seating 70,000 or more spectators and located in the.
hills west or southwest of the present area of Ferry field ready for the
1927 football season, a new field house, as large as the Yost field house.
but with no seating accommodations, will be ready by that time, accord-
ing to plans of the Athletic association announced yesterday.
Consideration of definite plans for the stadium will not be started
until after the new Board in Control of Athletics, created by the Regents,
comes into office on May z, Coach Fielding 1H. Yost, director of inter-
collegiate athletics, said yesterday. However, it is understodd that the
structure will be bowl-shaped, and not a double-decker, and will be
situated in a valley, so that 40 rows or more of seats will be built below
the level of the ground. Stadia of this type have been erected at
California and Yale, and may be built at a much smaller expense than
those of the type in use at Illinois, Ohio State and other universities.

alumni, two students, and nine members of the faculty, has been tenta-
tively set for May 3. This meeting, for purposes of organization only,
