Solons To Take Up Czech-Slovakia
Refundiag Agreement
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, April 27.-Approv-
ing the war debt settlements with Lat-
via, Esthonia and Roumania in rapid
syccession, the Senate today cleared
its calendar of all of the refunding
agreements except that with Czecho-
Slovakia, which will be taken up to-
Meanwhile the American and French
debt commissions marked time await-
ing further word from Paris before
renewing their negotiations. The
Americans met for fifteen minutes and
then decided to adjourn until Am-
bassador Berenger gives notices that
his government h'as new proposals to
offer for those in the original offer
found unacceptable to the American
The three agreeients ratified today
by the Senate involve a total of $64,-
195,000 and were put through by even
more overwhelming majorities than
was the Belgian settlement yesterday
and the Italian agreement last week.
The Latvian settlement was approved,
50 to 18, and the other two 'by the
same margin, 51 to 16.
The chief fight was on the Latvian
agreement, involving only $5,775,000
and interest at three per cent for the
first ten years and three and one-
third per cent thereafter. Senator
Reed, Dem., Mo., and Howell, Rep.,
Nebr., again led the fight.
Characterizing the Latviansettle-
mtent as not only "wasteful, but
idiotic," Senator Reed predicted that
long before the end of the 62 years,
over which payments are spread, Lat-
via will have been absorbed by Rus-
sia and the United States will lose a
part of the payment.
SenatorHowell contended that all of
the agreements were in the nature of
cancellations of the principals of the
debts and again argued that the debt
commission was saddling a burden on
the American taxpayers.

Judge William Lloyd Huggins of

of the American Bar association, is a
Rotarian and a thirty-second degree
Mason. While he will address him-
self primarily to students of law and
social sciences at the University, the

Future Of Aviation Depends On
Public Attitude, Says Pawlowski'

Declaring that the future of aero-
nautics depends on its commercial
possibilities which are in turn regu-
lated by the public understanding of
the industry's merits, Prof. F17. W. Paw-
lowski, head of the aeronautical en-
gineering department, spoke last nightI
on the final"Michigan Night" program
broadcast from the Detroit studio of i
stations WJR and WCX.f
The speaker outlined the various
types of air transportation and pointed
out the advantages of each. Speaking1
of dirigibles Professor Pawlowski
said that the recent Shenandoah dis-
aster should not discourage the de-
velopment of dirigibles.
"It is fai'ly well accepted in the en-
e gineering world that we have already
reached the maximum speeds of trans-
portation, on land and sea, and that,
it is impossible to increase appreciably
the present speeds," the speaker con-
tinued. "I do not hesitate to say,
that sooner or later, we will have to
fly, all of us, no matter whether we
are afraid of it or not and whether we
like it orsnot, as aviation provides the
safest fast means of locomotion," the
speaker said.

The bureau would be headed by com-

Wet members of the House offered
no formidable opposition, a number
supporting the bill on the ground that
it would make prohibition enforcement
more drastic, thus bringing about in-

State Board Of Education Expresses
Emphatic Opposition To
Fifth School.
(By Associated Press)
LANSING, April 27.-In a heated

joint meeting of the state administra-s
tive board and the state board of edu-
cation today, the proposed *fifth state
normal college project in the northern
part of the state evidently was killed
for months to come. if not forever.
After a sharp brush between Gov.
Alex J. Groesbeck and Thomas E.
Johnson, superintendent of public in-
struction, in which the governor in-j
ferred Johnson was attempted to in-
ject "idiotic argument" into the af-
fairs of the state normals, and inti-
mated that-politics loomed prominent-
ly in the back ground, every member
of the board of education admitted
emphatic opposition to the idea of a
fifth normal.
Fred A. Jeffers, chairman of the
board of education, said that in his;
opinion there is no immediate need for!
a fifth normal. Allen M. Freeland and
Frank Cody, his fellow board mem-
bers, concurred and asserted that had
the legislature consulted them before
authorizing another normal, the proj-
ect would have been turned down.I
Johnson agreed with the others that
the present normal school system is
adequate. Gov. Groesbeck introduced
a letter written by Johnson last Feb-
I ruary, saying that a series of junior
high schools would take care of the
needs of the northern counties for
higher education.
The governor said he wanted to
clear up the position of the board,
which a few months ago recommended
Petoskey as the site for the proposed
normal, because he has been charged
with the responsibility of approving a
site. That no school will be estab-
lished at this time appears a foregone
conclusion. The governor patently
was forcing into the open recent
threats that the board of education
might demand he approve a site.
Chairman Jeffers, expressing the
sentiment of the board, declared he
desired to publicly announce that the
board was not cognizant of any plan
to demand such action from the gov-

example of raw material," and greater Cancer Rem edy
