Says Many Industries Are Operating
Under Small-Scale Processes
Of Years Ago
England's present crisis is only a
symptom of more fundamental causes
than immediate wage or hour disputes,
said Sir A. Frederick Whyte, former
president of the legislative assembly
of India, in the first of a Series of
three lectures, yesterday. It is due
to the need for a general reorganiza-
tion of British industrial relations,
which has developed through the
progress of industry and the results
of the war, he stated. Sir Frederick
will speak again at 4:15 today in the
Natural Science auditorium on "The
Political Awakening of Asia."
"England is paying the penalty for
being the pioneer in nearly all kindsI
of industry," it was explained, "and
many industries are still operating
under the smll-scale methods of
years ago, without efficient use of re-
cently developed scientific improve-'
ments. This is one of the two deeper
causes of the present situation. On
the side of labor, the leaders will not
give up ground once gained. The re-
strictions on owners which the labor-
ers gained 30 years ago must be re-
moved in order to give England a
freedom of experiment and individual
work, such as exists in the United
Sees Aid In Politics
Sir Frederick asserted that a retorm
of industry from within would be pref-
erable to one from without, but ex-l
pressed a doubt as to whether either
the capitalists or laborers would be
able to achieve that reform. It will
in all probability have to be carried
out by one of the political parties,
through political action, he said. t
If the Conservative party will take1
the broad outlook toward affairs that
is shown by the younger leaders of
that group, Sir Frederick believes that
they will be the ones to effect the
necessary reorganization. The Liberal
party, of which he was once a repre-
sentative in the House of Commons,
could .have achieved it, but "committed
suicide," and thus forfeited the right
to do so, he stated. "The Labor partyf
has shown a desire to study the foun- .
dations of society, but is tending
toward the socialistic methods of pub-
lic, control of industry, he continued.
That restriction is just what British
industry needs most to get away from.
"The strike occurred," Sir Frederick
explained, "because it appeared that
not only the owners, but also the gov-
ernment, favored a reduction in wages
to meet the lowering demand for coal."
The government took a hand last year,
and appointed a royal commission to
investigate the situation. One of the I
recommendations of this commission
was, he said, that in certain districts
wages would have to be cut in order
to enable industry to continue on a
profitable basis.
The subsidy was to end May 1, and
as neither the government or the own-
ors had a complete program for con-
trolling the situation, Premier Stanley
Baldwin offered to extend the subsidy
during the period of discussion on
condition that the report of the com-
mission be accepted. The minersl
stated that if they had to accept a
report involving a reduction of wages,'
they would fit enter the discussion.
Out of this argument, Sir Frederick
said, grew the strike.-
The reason that the strike was not
confined toa single industry, lie ext
plained, was that the laborers of thei

coal industry are not alone in oppos-
ing reduction of wages. Other labor-
ers knew that if the owners in the,
coal business- were successful in car-
rying through the reduction, their
owners could do likewise. They all
feared a wide campaign for lower
wages, and that is the only reason
that could persuade the railroad men,
under James Thomas, to join with A.
J. Cook of the milers' union in the
first general strike in England since
that country became an industrial na-
Scouts War Threat
Sir Frederick stated that Premier
Baldwin's precautions were "not un-
necessary," explaining that they were
based on an act of 1920, passed in a
period of uncertainty, which provides
for military safeguards in case of dan-
ger. "Premier Baldwin," he asserted,
"is a representative Englishman, gen-
erous and conciliatory, but still fully
conscious of his duties to safegurad

Hobbs' Expedition To Greenland
Postponed; Funds Insufficient

Because of the fact that only a por-
tion of funds necessary to launch the
University expedition to Greenland
this summer has been raised, and it is
now too late to complete arrange-
ments for the project this year, the
expedition, as 'regards its main pur-
poses, has been postponed until the
summer of 1927, it was announced
yesterday by Prof. William H. Hobbs
of the geology department. It is pro-
posed, however, by Professor Hobbs
to make a preliminary trip to the
arctic region this summer with a
small University party in preparation
for the main expedition a year later.-
The sum estimated by Professor
Hobbs as necessary to defray the
cost of the Greenland exploit, and
which lie has been endeavoring to
raise during the past few months, is
$100,000. The total now subscribed isE
$9,000, he stated yesterday.
Accoiding to present plans, Profes-
sor Hobbs will spend two months in
Greenland this summer with a party
of seven or eight. That this prelimi-
ary trip is highly desirable was em-

phasized by the geologist, yesterday,
who pointed out that its purposes will
be to ascertain, more definitely, places
to establish meteorological stations inf
Greenland; to make other preliminary
surveys; and to investigate various
problems which will not require ex-
tensive preparation.
The matter of transportation is now
the only problem unsettled for the
trip planned this summer, said Pro-
fessor Hobbs. There are no regular
vessels going to Greenland except
Danish government shops from Co-
penhagen. A sub-chaser of 300 tons,
now in private hands, has been offered
for Professor Hobbs' use this summer
and negotiations are now under way
to procure this. There is a further
possibility that the party may make
the trip on another special vessel
sailing from Canada in July.
Arrangements will be continued asj
usual for the expedition in 1927, ac- t
cording to Professor Hobbs, which
will be identical in every respect to
the extensive University undertaking
originally planned for this year. I


Will Discuss Findings Of Universityj
Expedition To Islands In

Set Price For Maize And Blue Outlits
To Form "31" At $1 Per Student
For Entire Season


Incidents of the University of Mich-
igan expedition to the Philippines will
be related by Dr. Carl E. Guthe, as-
sociate director of anthropology, at 8
o'clock tonight in Natural Science au-
ditorium. The lecture is being held
under the auspices of Sigma Xi, na-
tional honorary society for the pro-
motion of research l in both pure and
applied sciences.,
Under the leadership of Dr. Guthe,
the University museums sent an arch-
aeological expedition to the Philip-
pines in 1922. The party remained
until the latter part of 1925 and, in
all, made 20 trips to the southern half
of the islands. The greater share of
the travelling was made in a 75 foot
schooner furnished to the expedition
by Dean C. Worcester, '89. Mr. Wor-
cester is noted as having been an im-
portant factor in the history of the
During the three years the expedi-
tion attempted to find evidences of
old Philippine manners of living.
Searches were made in burial places,
in both caves and graves. A large
amount ofaAsiatic porcelain and pot-
tery and also a great quantity of ear
rings, bracelets, and other trinkets
were discovered.
The material found in the burial
places was obtained from merchants
who travelled from China in junks.
The findings of the expedition show-
ed that the Philippine Islands had
communication with the mainland as
far back as 1000 A. D.
"S. S. Glencairn" To Conclude Year's
Dramatic Program
Beginning a run of four scheduled
performances onWednesday, Thurs-
day, Friday and Saturday nights of
this week, Eugene O'Neill's cycle of
sea plays the "S. 5. Glencairn" will
be presented at 8:30 o'clock tonight
in the Mimes theater.
This is the first presentation on the
campus of any of Eugene O'Neill's
plays by the major dramatic societies,
and it is thessecond performance ever
given of this group, the first being
by the Provincetown player of New
York. The cast of the play, which
jhas been in rehearsal for the past six
' weeks, is entirely masculine.
Two dress rehearsals have been
given, and have received the approval
of the directors, E. Mortimer Shuter,
assisted by Robert Henderson, '26.
Roy Hoyer, leadiig man of Fredj
Stone's "Stepping Stones" who is in
Ann Arbor training the choruses for
the 1927 Vnion opera, attended the
last rehearsal and pronounced it com-
plete. Special scenery has been de-
signed for the "S. S. Glencairn" in
the Mimes workshop and music for
each act has been written by Milton
Peterson, '27L.

Arrangements for Michigan's new
cheering section to be instituted next
fall were completed yesterday when
the price to be charged for the maize
and blue outfits to form the "M" was
set at $1 per student, for the entire
season. A formal request for 1,200
seats reserved for male undergraduate
students has been sent to the Athletic
association by the Student council and
will be granted, according to officials
of the association.
The outfit, consisting of a hat of feltj
on the order of an "M" hat; a square'
of cloth of a heavy material to be
worn over the shoulders; and a mega-
phone, colored in harmony with theI
rest of the material, will be purchased
by the Student council through George
Moe's Sport shop. Additional supplies
to replace those lost or destroyed
during the season will also be availa-
ble at the same place.
The cheering section, a living blockI
"M", will occupy seats in section E
in the south stands, all of section F,
and seats in section G, and will ex-
tend from row 15 up to row 44 inclu-
sive-totaling 1,200 seats. Tickets
for this section will be marked "cheer-
ing section," with no numbers indi-
cated; a block "M" will be drawn in
the stands, and after meeting at the
Yost field house, men in the section,
will enter in a group and fill in thej
block of seats, those; in blue forming
the "M" and those in yellow the back-
No cheering section seats will be is-
sued to students who have not regis-
tered with the council and paid for
their outfits. Registration will be held
at Waterman gymnasium during theI
regular registration week in Septem-
ber and will be limited to seniors,
juniors, and sophomores during the
first week. If the quota of 1,200 is
not reached, it will be filled by allow-i
ing freshmen to sit in the reservedI

{Men Form Long Lines When Bulletins
Of Strike's Progress Are
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, May 4.-London met its 1
novel experience of a general strike'
with all its manifold inconveniencesj
r with good humor. The almost uni-
versal opinion of the populace is that1
the strike will not last many days. In
1 its varied aspects it was a new thrill
for the people.
London was converted from an om-
nibus and tram city to a motor car
city today. The main streets looked
the same; in the busy shopping cen-
ters there were fewer well-dressed
idlers than customary, but the absen-
tees, frightened by the strike, were
replaced by another class of idlers,
men deprived of their occupation by
the strike, whb wore an air of listless
curiosity. They formed into long lines
whenever new bulletins of the prog-
ress of the strike were displayed, this
being the only available method of
distributing the news in the almost
complete absence of newspapers ex-
cept an occasional bulletin broadcast
by radio.
The streets presented a new pano-
rama of swiftly moving traffic, dan-E
gerous to pedestrians. The usual in-
ending lines of trams and busses were
replaced by automobiles.
Thus far the strike has been orderlyE
and well conducted. A government
spokesman in a radio statement today1
admitted that the officials of the1
trades union congress who had under-
taken to assist in the voluntary work
of maintaining food and other supplies
had been as good; while all records
received testify to the strikers prov-
ing obedience to their leaders.
This record, according to the same
spokesman, however, had one notable
exception, namely that about 10,000
men engaged in the chemical trades in
Cheshire, who had been called out by
their union, reported for work as
usual this morning.-
Freshmen Meet
For Banquet At'
Union Tonight
Precedent may be established at
6:15 o'clock tonight when members of
the class of '29 gather in the assem-
bly hall of the Union for a combined
banquet and pep meeting preparatory
to the annual Spring games Friday
and Saturday. It will be the second
Sannual spring banquet of the fresh-
man class but it will be the first time i
that the assembly before the games
has been in the form of a banquet.
The underclass department of the
Union, with the social committee of
the freshman class, is making arrange-
ments to serve nearly 500 men.
William L. Diener, '26, president of
the Union, will act as toastmaster.
Joseph Finn, '26, as chairman of the
class games committee will also speak,
as will Lester Johnson, '27I, chair-
man of the Union underclass depart-
One of the features of the evening
will be the election of the freshman
captain who will lead the class at the
games. In t;he past this has been done

at pep meetings. For those freshmen
who cannot attend the banquet dur-
ing the early part of the evening, ar-
rangements have been made to per-
mit them to participate in the election
at 7:30 o'clock.

Documnents Of Sir Henry Clinton And
Nathaniel Greene Are Shown r
For First Timer
Dr. Randolph G. Adams, custodian
of the William L. Clements library,F
gave an illustrated lecture on some of
the interesting papers from the ar- I
chives of Sir Henry Clinton, command-3
er-in-chief of the British armies dur-n
ing a greater part of the Revolution-f
ary war, at the library last night. 9
Dr. Adams traced the RevolutionaryI
war from Lexington to Yorktown as
the progress of the conflict can be as-r
