Ward Tollizien To Manage Production;
Starrett Will Handle Stage;
Tryouts Begin Work
Milton Peterson, '27L, is the author
of next year's Union opera, and Ward
Tillizien, '27, has been appointed gen-
eral chairman, according to announce-
ment, made last night. J. Elliott Star-
rett, '28E, was also named as stage
Announcement regarding the opera
book for next winter was made last
night by Prof. Oscar J. Campbell, of
the English department, chairman of
the opera book committee, which has
been considering 11 scenarios, submit-
ted by students, for the past month.
Tollizien and Starrett were appointed
yesterday afternoon at a meeting of
the opera committee on committees.
Peterson wrote two books for next
year's production, one of which was
accepted, in addition to several musi-
cal numbers. He composed practical-
ly all of the music and lyrics for
"Tambourine" this year.
Next year's book contains considera-
ble college atmosphere which is not]
restricted to Ann Arbor, however, but
is applicable to any college town. The
last opera which contained any sug-
gestion of university life was "George
Did It," produced in 1920.
"With the selection of a book which
has a certain amount of college flavor
in it," said Professor Campbell, "we
sincerely hope to please those alumni
who have been asking for its revival
as well as others who prefer that type
of production to that which has been
given the past few years."
The bulk of the music for next year
will not be chosen until Roy Hoyer
arrives in Ann Arbor next Monday, in'
'order that it may lit in with the ideas
for dance numbers that Mr. Hoyer
will bring with him. ,
Tollizien, the new general chairman,
was a member of the make-up com-
mittee the past year, while Starrett'
was on the costume committee. BotI
will begin work at once. The remain-
ing committee heads will be named
later this spring and next fall.
The first tryout of the choruses for
next year's show wa held at the
Mimes theater yesterday. Another will
be held today and two tomorrow in
preparation for Mr. Hoyer's assuming
charge of the chorus work next week.
Distribution of the 1926 Michigan-
ensian will be carried on at the busi-
ness offices at the Press building, be-
ginning this afternoon. The office will
be open from 1 to 5 o'clock every
afternoon except Saturday, when the
hours will be from 9 until 12 o'clock.
Distribution from the Press building
will continue for two weeks, after
which time, according to agreement,
all copies not called for will be for-
feited by the purchasers.
Lost receipts will be replaced and
other irregularities adjusted at the
business offices. Those who have not
purchased copies, but desire to do so,
should place their names on the wait-
ing list at the office. According to the
business staff an attempt will be made
to fill all such orders after May 12.
The price of copies bought at this
time will be $5.50.

case had been made for a modification
of the Volstead Act.
Senator Edge challenged the drys to
support a national referendum on the
;prohibition question, while Senator
Bruce predicted that the wets would
be in a great majority in the Senate
"before very long."
Evidence before the committee was
that Volstead Act violation is not sec-
tional but universal. Senator Edge de-
clared. Senator Bruce asserted that
the official records show that drunken-

ROIE April 29. ---sPremier
Mussolini grimly announced in
Chamber of Deputies this after-
noon at a special session devoted
to a great demonstration of
thanksgiving for his escape in
the recent attempt on his life,
that he was not disturbed by the
possibility of a repetition of at-
tempts on his life-there have
been two in one year-because
he knew that Fascism's march
towards its destiny could not be
"While I understand your no-
ble preoccupation on this score,"
he exclaimed, "I do not intend
to hide myself or cut myself off
from direct contact with' the
mass of the Italian people."
Mussolini faced a vast crowd
jamming every available inch of
space in the huge Montecitorio
auditorium. The ceremonies pre-
ceding his speech were a stirring
tribute of loyalty and affection
for the leader of Fascism. An-
tonio Casertano, president of the
chamber, declared that any men-
ace against Mussolini was also
a menace against the destiny of
Mussolini, and repeated amid
wild excitemen't Fascism's battle
cry-"God save him to us; woe
to whomsoever touches him."
Some tension was caused dur-
ing tributes paid to the memory
of Giovanni Amendola, who died
recently at Cannes from injuries
received at the hands of a mob,
when the communist deputy,
Massi, in speaking for his party,
made reference to Matteotti, the
socialist deputy who was mur-
dered in 1924, and for whose
death several of the Fascisti are
serving prison terms.

'AT 84, 025,000, 000
President Coolidge Approves Offer;
Payments To Be Met Over
Long Period
(By Assoc'iated Press)
WASHINGTON, April 29.-Agree-
mont for a settlement of the $4,025,-
000,000 French war debt was reached
late today by the American debt com-
mission and Ambassador Berenger.
France's last offer fo'r a total pay-
went of $6,847,674,000 over a 62-year
period was received by the commis-
sion early in the afternoon. And after
an hour's consideration it was laid
before President Coolidge, who gave
his approval.
The offer exceeded by more than
$600,000,000 the best proposal of the
unsuccessful Caillaux mission of last
summer and its acceptance ended
more than eight months of almost
constant bargaining between repre-
sentatives of the two countries.
The settlement not only concluded
negotiations with America's secont
largest war debtor, but substantially
completed the commission's work of
,funding the $10,102,000,000 foreign
war debt of this nation. Only $295,-
000,000 of this amount remains un-
The end of the long discussion be-
tween the two countries came quickly
and quietly in marked contrast to the
excitement which marked the visit of
Caillaux mission. France authorized
her ambassador to accede to the com-
mission's demand that the first pay-
ments be increased beyond $25,000,000
annually, and thus remove the main
stumbling block.
Mr. Berenger gave Secretary Mel-
Ion, chairman of the commission, a
new offer, providing for payment of
$30,000,000 the first two years and
making other readjustments, and, al-
though Secretaries Kellogg and Hoo-
ver were absent, the commission
quickly gave its approval. Ambassa-
dor Berenger went to the treasury
later and -he and Secretary Mellon
signed the agreement.
The present value of the total pay-
ments on a 41-4 per cent basis, the
amount of interest charged on most
of the loans made by this government
to obtain the money for France, is
$2,008,122,624, or about 50 per cent
of the debts funded as compared with
the Italian settlement of 25 per'cent.
The agreement does not include the
"safety clause" heretofore demanded
by France which would relieve that
country of its debt responsibilities in
the event of failure of Germany tc
meet its reparations. This provides
for the funding of $4,025,000,000 rep-.
resenting $3,340,000,000 in principal,
and $685,000,000 accrued interest to
the date of the agreement.
Payment will start at $30,00,000 for
the first two years, $32,500,000 for the
next two years, and $3,000,000 the
fifth year. They will increase to $40,-
000,000 the sixth year and graduate
upward $10,000,000 annually until the
thirteenth year. The payments will
then increase $5,000,000 annually until
the seventeenth year, when the total
will be $125,000,000. Annual payments
of $125,000,000 will be paid thereafter
until the sixty-second year when the
final amount will be $177,674,104.
Interest charges on the debt will
average a little more 'than one and
five-eighths per cent. No interest will
be charged during the first five years.
For the next ten years, interest will
amount to one per cent annually; for
the next ten years, two per cent; for

the next eight years, two and one-
half per cent; for the next seven
years, three per cent; and for the re-
maining twenty-two years, three and
one-half per cent.
Similar to the other agreements, the
debt bears interest of four and one-
quarter per cent to Dec. 15, 1922, and
three per cent thereafter to June 15,
1925, the date of the agreement on
the amount of the debt.

In the three years, Dr. Guthe made
twenty trips to different parts of the

Searches were made in both caves andj
