Krim Under Pressure Front French
And Spanish Is Unable To Ratlly
His Forces
(By Associated Press
PARIS, May 25.-The French gov-
ernment will continue its program for
the pacification of the Riffs despite
the vague request for a suspension of*
hostilities received from Abd-el-Krim,
the Rffian's leader, in the form of a
letter delivered by a French doctor.
The cabinet, after considering the
letter today decided it was too vague
to be considered. It is understood
that the Spanish government is in
full accord with the French on this
point. Krim's letter was delvered
to representatives of. both govern-
ments at the same time and seems to
have made the same impression in
both capitals. The result of the
Franco-Spanish military operations
since the breakup of the Oujba peace
conference, have convinced both pow-
ers that Krim no longer need be con-
sidered except as an individual dissi-
Abandoned by his own tribe and un-
able to rally his forces which are
steadily losing heart under the con-
stant pressure of the French and'
Spanish, he is merely playing for time
in the opinion of official circles. What
is felt to be a significant feature of
Krim's letter is that he signed it
without giving himself any title or
power . He even failed to speak of
himself as Caid of the Beni Ouriaghel
tribe or as leader of any other tribe.
It is felt at the Quai d'Orsay that
Krim, not only has lost the greater
part of his power and military prestige
but has forfeited the right to speak
politically or diplomatically for any
9n his former followers.
More than half of the Beni Ouriag-
hel have surrendered since Krim
sought 'refuge in the territory of oth-
er tribes. The Berbers fighting with
the French forces have found that
tribes all along the line of operation
prefer to submit rather than continue
the struggle. If Krim offers to sur-
'render, his offer will be accepted only
unconditionally. The entire Riff cam-
paign, it is felt now, may end without
peace parleys but by a gradual paci-
fication in the troubled regions, hos-
tilities against each tribe ceasing au-
tomatically with its submission.
S. M. Mathews, forest conservator of
British North Borneo, will deliver an;
address before the Forestry club at
8 o'clock tonight in room 214, NaturalI
science building. Mr. MatheWs will
relate some of his experiences as a
worker for 15 years in the tropicalI
forests. Although the general club
membership is\urged to be present at
the meeting, an invitation has been ex-,
tended to the public to attend.

University To Furnish Health Blanks
For New Students To Be Filed
Out By Home DoctorI

Work Of Investigation Group Will Be
Presented To Board Of Directors
Tomorrow For Final Approval


In an attempt to correct the impres-
sion that students desiring to enter
the University next fall may bring a
certificate of examination from their
doctor at home and so be exempt
from examination by University doc-
tors, Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director
of the University Health service, is-
sued a statement to the contrary yes-
terday afternoon.
According to this statement, the
tedious task of giving physical exam-
inations to every incoming student
will be lightened considerably, but will
not be done away with entirely. Blanks
will be sent out to all those who
signify their intention of entering, by1
asking advance information, and these
blanks will cover practically everything
that is usually covered by the Health
service officials. However each stu-
dent must present this blank in the
regular examining line in order that
all notations made by the home doc-
tors may be verified. Undoubtedly
this procedure will noticeably hasten
the passing of this line, said Dr.:
He also made mention of the fact
that the opportunity will be available
to new students all the coming sum-
mer to make an advance trip to Ann
Arbor and have their complete exam-
ination at that time. The whole plan
of sending out blanks in advance and
making earlier examination possible
is merely an experimental step in
hastening the activities of the week
preceding the opening of regular ses-
sions and doing away with some of the
inefficiency now present.
Outside of the medical examination,
there is the series of measurements
and exercises under the supervision
of Dr. George A. May, director of
Waterman gymnasium. Obviouslyj
these could hardly be taken care of by
means of the advance blanks. Dr.
May said yesterday that he had ar-

After practically five months work,j
the investigation committee of the Un-
ion, which was appointed last January
to look into the operation and main-
tenance of the various departments of
the Union, submitted its report to the
board of directors at the latter's
meeting yesterday. The report was ap-
proved and will be presented to the
board of governors for final sanction
tomorrow afternoon.
As yet only the investigation com-
mittee and members of the board of
directors have seen the report. If
approved by the board of governors
tomorrow, it will then be made public.
The directors yesterday voted to re-
store the former price of 25 cents per
swim for all persons using the swim-
ming pool beginning at Commence-
ment. The same hours will be accord-
ed women students as last summer.
Whether the price of ten cents per
swim will be charged again next year
will be determined by the board at its
first meeting following the opening of
school next fall.

Havoc Wrought
As Lava Pours
TOKIO, May 25.-A mountain lake
released by an eruption= from a long
inactive volcano crater .caused the
greater part of the death and destruc-
tion which followed yesterday's re-
sumption of the activity in Mountj
Tokachi, in central Hokkaido, north-
ernmost part of the principal islands
of Japan.
The governors of Hokkaido reported
today to the home minister that 100
dead and more than 200 injured have
been removed from the mass of mud,
lava, and rock precipitated from the
long slumbering crater.
Besides these, about 1000 farmers of
the newly opened, but rapidly develop- i
ing agricultural district around thei
mountains are missing and it is im-
possible' to tell how many of these
may have been buried alive in the
flood of water and mud.
The peasants of Tokachi district
were not without warning for on May
4 the volcano began rumbling and
many fled from the region.

WARSAW, May 25.-Clashes beween
the right and left parties, with blood-
shed in some places, is reported fromj
the various provinces in connection
with political meetings preparatory to
the national assembly which is to
meet next week for the purpose of
electing a president of the republic.
Despite the demands of the War
minister of the interim cabinet set up
after Marshal Pilsudski succeeded in
overthrowing the government of
President Wojchiechowski, that the
civilians give up the arms furnished
to 'volunteers during the 'revolution,
more than 3,000 rifles are still in the
hands of civilians, causing the govern-
ment anxiety.
It is reported from Lemberg that
street rioting followed outdoor meet-
ings today of the Socialists and na-
tional Democrats, the police having
to use their clubs to restore order. A
score of persons were injured includ-
ing three policement.
Marshal Pilsudski in his first joint
interview with American newspaper-
men declared that he would demand
that Parliament would revise more
than 200 laws and unify the old code
of Polish law, to untangle the endless
governmental red tape and wipe out
the bureaucracy which hampered the
nation's development. Poland's for-
eign policy and the general princi-
ples of domestic administration, hef
added, would undergo no change.
Beyond this the newspapermen
could get little definite information
from the marshal. At one point in
the interview he answered a question
by saying:
"You cannot make me talk by1
throwing compliments at me," and
then he took refuge in his private
office. His aid said: "When Pilsudski
is president he will give another in-'

for the foreign office. "

City Moves To Prevent Future Riots;
Will Resort To Tear Bombs{
If Necessaryj
(By Associated Press)
LANSING, May 25.-Future gather-
ing of the student body of Michigan
State college in Lansing will be view-
ed by the Lansing police as "hostile{
demonstrations" and such gatherings
will be dispersed.
This attitude prevailed at police
headquarters today when Chief Alfred
Seymour served notice on H. H. Halla-
day, and Prof. John Phelan, dean of
deans at ,M. S. C., that a demonstra-
tion such as marked the students'
celebration of the M. S. C.-Michigan
base ball game Monday night never
will be permitted in Lansing again.
Seymour indicated that any group of
celebrators moving from the college toj
Lansing in the future would be met
at the city limits of Lansing by police
and entrance to the city barred. The
use of tear gas was promised by po-
lice officials in dispersing future stu-
dent body gatherings within the city.
The'edict of the police, if enforced,
will mean that student parades, com-
mon in the past, will be no more in
Last night's gathering was the
climax to a,.series of student body
demonstrations which steadily have.
grown more lawless, Seymour de-
clared. .
Parade Denied
"Permission to parade, even with a
department escort of motorcycles, has
been offered students in the past," he
declared, "but an orderly celebration
doesn't appear to be the choice of the
college group.
"Citizens of Lansing will not be sub-
jected to disturbances such as oc-
curred Monday night, nor will they
again be menaced by the destruction
of their property by a group of young
hoodlums who have just watched one
of -their teams win an athletic victory.
The wall is up around Lansing."

Senate's Order Is Denounced In Fiery
Terms By Curry And Hill On
House Floor
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, May 25.-Amid the
growing uproar over President
Coolidge's order authorizing state and
local officials to act as federal pro-
hibition agents, the White House to-
day defended the action and the Sen-
ate unanimously directed.its judiciary
committee to investigate its legality.
These were outstanding. develop-
ments in the latest prohibition con-
troversy which also extended to the
House of Representatives where Rep-
resentative Curry, Republican, Cali-
fornia, denounced the order in a
fiery speech and Representative Hill,
Republican, Maryland, a leader of the
wets, offered a resolution which would
have the effect of nullifyinig the presi-
dent's action.
An informal but official White
House pronouncement was that the
President felt he had neither exceeded
his authority nor invaded state rights,
but was ready to modify his order
should its operation lead to harmful
The Senate resolution of inquiry,
sponsored by Senator King Democrat,
Utah, was adopted after a prohibition
field day in the Senate during which
the legality of the order was defended
there for the first time and by a Demo-
crat, Senator Walsh, of Montana, an
ardent dry and in the past a frequent
critic of the administration.
There was no discussion on the
resolution itself which went through
without a record vote and with no op-
position after it has been amended
by Seator Bingham, Republican,
Connecticut, to set forth that the ig
quiry would be "to enable the Senate
to determine whether legislation is ad-
visable or necessary."
Denouncing the order in the House,
Representative Curry declared it was
"unconstitutional, unjust, vicious,
wrong, and contrary to the fundamen-
tal principles of American govern-
ment". He also said the people of
California would like it better if the
treasury, instead of first applying the
order to their state, would apply it in
New York or the president's own
state, Massachusetts.
Representative Hill's resolution
went over under the rules, but he an-
nounced that if the president's orders
were not revoked within a few days
I he would press for its adoption. It
would prohibit employment of federal
officers by state and state officers by
the federal government and would
require action by the Senate.
During the Senate post-mortem on
the Pennsylvania Republican prim-
aries and its relation to the prohibi-
tion question, Senator Reed, Repub-
lican, of that state said the people
have shut their eyes and voted blind-
ly wet or dry. He added that "as long
as the people of Pennsylvania vote
like a lot of dunder-heads they de-
serve what they get."
With respect to the charge that the
- President ordered constituted an in
vasion of state sovereignty, it was
stated at the White House that the
chief executive had not thought that
this quesion could arise for the rea-
son that the state not only had invited,
but had commanded the national gov-

ernment to take concurrent jurisdic-
tion with the states, in the enforce-
ment of the prohibition law.
