(By Associated Press)1
BERLIN, April 28.-The failure of
the coalition parties, after four
months deliberation, to produce an
alternative for the socialist-communist
bill providing for the confiscation of
the properties of former German rul-
ers without indemnity, finds the
Luther ministry in its weakest posi-
tion since taking office. The decision
over the government's compromise
bill before the Reichstag judiciary
committee, today, collapsed after
there had been a liberal exchange of
inter-party iecriminations. Later
there was a heated debate in the
Reichstag over the radical's referend-
um meaure, which the government
vainly sought to head off.
Provide Settlementt
The confiscation bill was initated
by the votes of more than 12,000,000
Germans and seeks to take over for
the nation all the properties of the
former rulers, while the government
is desirous of providing indemnifica-
tions to a reasonable amount, includ-
ing a settlement of about 12,000,000
marks in cash to the Hohenzollern's,
as well as thousands of acres of land
and three castles in Prussia.
In a vicious attack on the radical
confiscation bill, Count Westart, the
nationalist leader, explained; "this
measure is the result of a campaign
of spies and terrorism."
Count Westart defended the former
German emperor's departure to Hol-
land on the ground that William II'
believed that better peace terms could
be obtained for the German people
if he disappeared from the scene.
Speaking for the 'socialists, Deputy
iesnele declared tbt the fight for
the ex-ruler's properties was not a
battle for millions but a struggle for
Lack Leadership
The govenment was charged with
lack of leadership throughout its pro-
tracted negotiations Wvith the Reich-
stag and that it made the initial mis-
take of declaring that a settlement
of the matter needed a two-thirds ma-
jority vote, and also with failing to
mdify 'its draft sufflciently to win
over either socialsts or naiotnalists,
to reinorce the middle parties bloc.
Dr. Peyton "Rous Is Associated With
tockefeler Institute

Primed for competition after four
weeks of intensive training, the Uni- I

will entrain at 9 o'clock tonight for
Quebec from where it is scheduled to
sail for England Saturday afternoon
on the Doric, sister ship of the S. S.
Regina. It had been planned to sail
from Montreal, but Prof. R. D. T. Hol-

yesterday that due to ice conditions it
will be impossible to sail from that
William W. King, Jr., '27L, R. E.
Gomberg, '27, and Gerald E. White,
'27, are the members of the Michigan -
teram. They were selected several
weeks ago, from a large list of try-
outs, to represent the University
Experience Varied
King is the oldest and most experi-
enced of the debaters. He received
his first training at the Carthage, Mo.,
high school, and later represented
Ohio Wesleyan university in nine in-
tercollegiate debates. He is a mem-
ber of Delta Sigma Rho.
Gomberg graduated from the Cn-
tral high school at Duluth, Minn.,
where he received four years debating
experience. In 1925 he represented
the University in the Central league
debates, and in 1926 he participatedI
in the Midwest debates. He is also a
member of Delta Sima Rho.
White is the youngest and most in-
experienced debater of the trio, but
in the elimination he displayed ex-
ceptional ability as a speaker and won
gut over men who have had varied ex-
: ' ninter'eileglate -forensic1
activities. He is a graduate- of the
Lowell, Mich., high school, at which
institution he received his first debate
training. He also represented the
Junior college at Grand Rapids in a
number of debates before coming to i
the University..
The schedule for the team lists the
first debate for May 10 with the Uni-
versity of Liverpool. The debate with
Oxford is fixed for the night of May
13, and with Cambridge May 18. Other
schools on the itinerary are: Bristol,
Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield, and
Exeter in England, and St. Andrews
in Scotland.
Debate Two Questions j
The questions for debate will be:
"Resolved, that this House views with
alarm the entrance of women into
the learned professions and state-
craft"; and "Resolved, that this House
opposes the growing tendency of gov-
ernment to invade the rights of the
individual." The English schools
have shown a preference for the for-
mer question in communications re-
ceived here from London.
Although the debate schedule will
be completed before June 1, it was
stated yesterday by Professor Hollis-
ter that the members of the team plan
to visit points of interest on the con-
tinent after the debates. Studies will
be continued and arrangements have
been made for the team to take ex-
aminations in their studies here in
