been kidnapped by Mexican
bandits were received here to-
day in a telegram stating that
J. J. Shanklin, an Amercian er-

Innovation Of Student Convocations,
Plans For Cheering Section
Among Achievements
Senior and junior representatives of
the Student council recently elected
and other members of that body, who
will serve next year, officially took
oflce, under the direction of Thomas
Cavanaugh, '27L, the president-elect,
at a meeting in the Union yesterday
afternoon, The only business trans
acted was the election of council of-
ficers forsnext year, and the appoint-
ment of chairmen of the new cheer-
ing section and the student convoca-
tions. Next year's officers are as fol-

representative on the council, and was

Start Convocations
The institution of student convoca-
tions'at Hill auditorium each Sunday
this month was in all probability the
greatest single achievement of the
Council which stepped out of office
yesterday. With an average atten-
dance of 3,000 at each of these non-
sectarian congregations, the council
feels that the innovation has been per-
manently established and that the con-
vocations will be in effect throughout
next year. It has been suggested that
a nationally prominent speaker be
brought here one Sunday each month
until May next year and that a convo-.
cation be held e'ery week at that tim.
in concluding the year's series. This
or a similar plan will be adopted by
the new council.
It was the Student council which
formulated the plans for a permanent
cheering section of 1200 students next
fall following an intensive study of
the cheering problem at Michigan. In
this connection the council brought
about a change in the method of se-
lecting the Varsity cheerleader, pro-
viding for his appointment by a board
consisting of the captains and mana-
gers of the four major teams instead
of his election by the student body.
The council reorganized the method
of handling class finances this year,
inaugurating a system of uniform re-
ceipts, and requiring all class treas-
urers to fill out vouchers.
Study Grading System
Kenneth Kellar, '26, retiring presi- I
dent of the council appointed a stu-
dent committee to make a study of
the grading and examination system
fn the University with the view to
making possible recommendations for
various changes and to consider the
advisability of favoring the extension
of the honor system throughout the
literary school.
The recent petition by the council to
the Senate committee on student af-
fairs for increased student representa-
tion on the committee with equal vot-
ing power for all members was ap-
proved and will be recommended to
the Board of Regents today. The ad-
Ministrative board of the literary
school\ whose principal functions are
the consideration of cases of dishon-
esty in examinations and irregularities
in elections, has also been petitioned
by the council for the seating of three
students on that board each year. At
present the board is composed entirely
of faculty members.
Every recommendation of the coun-
cil this year to the University disci-
pline committee concerning cases of
misconduct by students was reaffirm-
ed by subsequent action of that com-
The rooming house committee of the
council cooperated with the assistant'
dean of students throughout the year
in the handling of many such cases.
Establish Council
Finally, in addition to the annual
functions of the council, which include
conducting class elections, the spring
elections and the arrangements of the
spring and fall games and Cap Night,

this year's body established four col-
lege councils in the University in an
effort to widen the scope of student
government. The principal functions
of each of the new councils will be to
handle class elections, disciplinary
cases, and any other constructive
work within its respective school, sub-
ject to supervision of the Student
council in all respects.
The council was also instrumental

Viscount Cecil for one, does not con-
sider that a separate naval agreement
as suggested by Japanese diplomats
is an impossibility. Before departing
for England tonight, he told the cor-
respondents that it might well appeal
during the progress of the preparatory
work at Geneva that it would be pos-
sible to treat special phases of dis-
armament apart. He said that he
could see no reason why the Geneva
effort should hold up other negotia-
He emphasized, however, that it
would not be desirable to arrange any
conference that might seem to com-
pete with -the Geneva meetings. His
idea was that any naval negotiations
should dovetail into the main effort
which is now being undertaken by the
preparatory commission.
Meanwhile the Jaanese have not
lost heart that their suggestion for a
three power naval conference between
the U. S., Great Britian and Japan
may materialize. Their hopes, of
course, is that France and Italy will
join in a naval conference which
should not be permitted to embarass
Geneva's centralized struggle against
competitive armaments.
"We are only at the beginning of
our studies into this complex prob-
lem" Mr. Gibson said tonight, "the
American delegation believes, how-
ever, that land, naval and air problems
can be handled separately, although
it doesn't necessarily mean separate
district conferences., We must wait
to see the best way of treating the de-
tails, and we will know more when the
experts have rendered their decision
on the various technical questions
which have been put to them."
ritis Strike

Howard States
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, May 26.-The recent
general strike in England served, in
the opinion of Sir Esme Howard, the
British ambassador, to establish
"once again and for generations to
come a belief and a faith in the prin-
ciples of free constitutional parlia-
mentary government."
In an address before the American
National Association of Credit Men
here tonight, which was confined al-
most entirely to a discussion of the
strike, he said that "on the whole, I
think not only Great Britain, but also
the world at large-always excluding
our friends at Moscow-may be con-
gratulatud on the outcome."
"I hope that once the mining diffi-
culty has been settled, as I feel con-
I vinced it must now be settled, and
once the mining industry has been
adjusted to modern conditions," he
added, "we may look forward with a
new hope to an era of internal peace
and prosperity in Great Britain, which
will also have its reflex in the pros-
perity of this country, which sells, I
believe, 25 per cent of its total exports
to the British Isles."

Senate Judiciary Committee To Decide
Constitutionality Of Order
For State Al
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, May 26.-More
backfiring on the prohibition question
was heard today in both' houses of
Congress as the Senate judiciary com-
mittee prepared to discuss tomorrow
the legality of President Coolidge's
order authorizing the employment of
state and local officers as federal en-
forcement agents.
The order was defended In the
House by Rep. Swing, Republican,
California, in whose state it is first to
be put into effect. He said it was not
in conflict with the constitution,
was not without precedence and added
that he felt confident the people of
California as a whole would be glad
to cooperate with federal officials in
enforcing the dry law.
In the Senate, Senatr Edwards,
Democrat, New Jersey, a leader of
the wets, renewed his assault on the
order, while Senator Caraway, Demo-
crat, Arkansas, a dry, delivered a gen-
eral prohibition speech, assailing the
wets for what he termed their propa-
ganda and asserting that no one who
believes in law enforcement wanted a
national referendum on the prohibition
While the discussion was developing
into sharp tilts between wet and dry
senators, Chairman Cummins of the
judiciary committee announced that
the committee would begin informal
discussion tomorrow under the Senate
resolutions directing it to report as
to the legality of the order. He said
that this was purely a question of law
and that so far as he was concerned
he would not favor any hearing, pub-
lic or private.
"I have no doubt in my mind that
the order is without warrant at law,"
Senator Cummins said, "the Presi-
dent had no more right to issue that
order than I did."
"I am not saying that the govern-
ment cannot employ state officers in
prohibition enforcement if the state
and individual officers are willing.
Congress fixed the method by which
they could be employed, however. That
is either by the attorney-general or
the commissioner of internal revenue.
Representative Swing had a different
view of the order, declaring in the
house that it was not an intrusion on
state rights and that California state'
officers had assisted in the enforce-
ment of federal quarantine laws under
an executive order issued in 1907. He
also held that state officers help en-
force other federal laws.
If California is unwilling for its of-
ficers to enforce the federal dry law,
Mr. Swing added, its legislature "can
say so and stop it." Calling attention
that California has a state dry en-
forcement code he asked:
"Who can object to the executive order
except the fellow who desires to avoid
The Senate debate resolved itself
into a fiery exchange between Sena-
tors Caraway and Bruce, Democrat,
Maryland, one of the wet leaders.
The discussion became so heated at
one time that Senator Walsh, Demo-
crat, Montana, a dry made a point of
order that there was "disorder in the
chamber". As the climax to the inter-
changes, Senator Bruce shouted that
he wanted the prohibition law changed
so there might be sobrity in the land.

"The only way to Pe sober is to
stop drinking," shot back Senator
Caraway. He added that the couptry
was faced with one of two proposi-
tions, either the return of old condi-
tions under the saloon or the retention
of the present prohibitory law.
Members of the Central league de-
bating class for next semester were
