Miitary Affairs Committee Reports
That Regular Army Should Be
125,000 Enlisted Men
(By Associated Pr.s)
American Legion in national conven-
tion today refused to reaffirm its
position it took at Omaha last year,
when it favored adherMnce to fhe
World court. A resolution reaffirm-
ing that action was rejected by a large
vote after speeches had been made
that the World court had become a
political question and that to adopt
the resolution would be violating the1
Legion constitution which provides
that the organization cannot be used
for the dissemination of partisan prin-
ciples. The merits of the World court
were not discussed by those who op-
posed the resolution.
The question of a unified air service
for the army and navy went over for
another year after the convention
committee on aeronautics had adopt-
ed a recommendation that there be.
one department of air services with
secretaries of equal importance for
land, sea and air forces. The com-
mittee after long conferences was
prevailed upon to "change the recom-
mendation to an expression that "it
looks with favor upon" the proposi-
tion. The committee also agreed to
the appointment of a committee of;
nine to study the entire question, and
report to the next convention. ,
San Antonio, Texas, won the 1928
convention of the legion after a con-
test with Miami and Denver. Detroit,
withdrew her invitation with the un-
derstanding that it will be renewed
for the 1929 meeting.
Next year's convention will be
held in Paris, France.
The convention will adjourn tomor-f
row after the election of a national'
commander and five vice-comman-
Asks Army Increase
The report of the military affairs
committee, adopted by the convention,
stated that the American Legion be-
lieves that the minimum requirement
for national defense should be a reg-
ular army of 12,000 officers and 125,-
000 enlisted men, in addition to the
recently authorized increase in the
air corps. There also should be, the
report stated, a national guard of
190,000, to be increased by annual in-
crement to 250,000 by 1936; the train-
ing of all field, line and staff officers
of the reserve corps, together with
the enlisted personnel of the organized
reserves for a period of 16 days every
three years; a reserve officers train-
ing corps adequate to provide 5,000 of-
ficers annually; a citizens military
training camp of 50,000 men and the
procurement, development and main-
tenance of such material and camps
as will properly equip all the afore-
mentioned components and the further
maintenance of an adequate war re-
serve for three field armies.
Support Draft Bill
The delegates cheered when the
committee reported that it favored the
immediate passage of the Johnson-
Pepper bill, known as the universal
draft bill, "not as only as a measure
of preparedness but also to prevent
future wars, thus eliminating slackers
and profiteers."
The committee endorsed the work of
the National Rifle association in its
efforts to spread the doctrine of rifle
marksmanship in high schools.

The report also contained the fol-
lowing: "Believing that teaching of
national defense to the youth of the
nation is the highest patriotism, the
American Legion stands resolutely for
military training in the high schools,
coleges and universities, and pledges
itself actively to oppose those pacifists,
radicals, communists and others who
are endeavoring in every possible way
to stop such training."
Thefts Reported In
University Offices


(By Associated Press)
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 14.-Wil-
liam J. Bingham, director of athletics
at Harvard, announced tonight that
the University of Indiana would ap-
pear on Harvard's 1927 football sched-
ule. The game between the Crimson
and the western conference eleven
will be played at Cambridge on Octo-
ber 29.I
At the same time it was rumored in
Harvard athletic circles that a tem-
porary interruption of football rela-
tions between Harvard and Dart-
mouth was possible, due to the fact
that the powerful western team had
been added to the schedule for next
year. Officials declined to confirm

ule is that which Tufts fills this year.
Director Bingham let it be known
that only four of Harvard's 1927 dates
had as yet been decided definitely.
Negotiations with Indiana were
opened after a home and home series
with Michigan for the season of 1927
and 1928 had been discussed and
abandoned. Reports that Harvard
1 planned to drop its Princeton game
next year in order to meet Michigan at
Ann Arbor resulted in a conference of
Big Three athletic heads in New
Haven last week. After that con-
ference, it was announced that there
was no danger of a rupture of Prince-
ton-Harvard athletic relations.

"It's like digging up your buried
relatives," exclaimed Elsie Janis yes-
terd'y afternoon, "when you start
discussing co-education at this time
in the game. As far as I can see,"
she added, "the women are here to'
stay and that is all there is to it."
Co-education or not, Miss Janis is
very enthusiastic about Ann Arborl
and the Union and as she wandered
up the long corridors, recounted many
experiences that she had had playing
in the old Michigan Union.
She was very much interested in
the college and all that is connected
with it. Commercialism, though, she
feels is getting its hold on all that is
American. "The interest shown in the
study of Spanish in American colleges
is evidence that the commercial.
spirit is creeping into our institutions


of higher learning. Especially in the
west, the number of students enrolled
in Spanish is twice that in any other
language and mainly because of its
value as an economic medium. Of
course," she said, "French used to be
the political language of Europe and
it still is-except in France." Regard-
ing languages, Miss Janis is skilled'
in Italian, French and German her-
self, and is studying Spanish at the
present time "between jumps."
This was Miss Janis' second visit to
Ann Arbor and she expressed her de-
light at appearing before an entirely
new audience at each performance.
"A new audience," she said, "gives me
a chance to make more people laugh,
and that after all, I4 what I would

Says Business Men Must Be Convert-
ed to Idea of College Preparation
For Business Careers
At the annual smoker of the school
of business administration held last
night ini lie Union, D~ean Edmund S.
Day of the School of Business Admin-
istration imformally addressed the
faculty and students of the school on
the problems confronting the school
at the present time.
He stressed the point that business
men and college students must be con-
verted to the idea of college prepara-
tion for a business career. An increas-
lng minority of business men, iclud-
ing many leaders, recognizethe ces-
sity of this training, accordin to
Dean Day, and with the period of
transition for the business school
nearly over, more college sudekits are
beginning to realize this truth.
Although freely admitting that cer-
tain types of students do not need ex-
tensive university training to enter
business, Dean Day advocated for the
great majority of men who have no
special business capacity, a program
of study containing a period of indense
specialization, as weltl as a' well-
rounded view of the whole subject.
He concluded his address by emphasiz-
ing the importance of the right at-
titude of the students in their col-
lege training for future positions in
the business world.
Plan Mass Protests
For Queen's Arrival
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Oct. 14.-Preparations
were completed by the New York sec-
tion of the International Labor de-
fense for an open air mass meeting
on the day that Queen Marie arrives,
protesting the "medieval tortures" it
alleges are being inflicted on 2,500
political prisoners in Roumania.
. A call was issued to the city's
workers to meet in Union square,
shortly after the hour of the Queen's
debarkation Monday, to "express their
condemnation of the Roumanian au-
thorities for thir brutal treatment of
lpolitical prisoners."
In nmany cases, the announcement
said, the men and women held in jail
"by the government represented by
'Queen Marie," have no charge against
them more serious than expression of
opinion or the reading of some labor
journal which is freely circulated in
the country."

Safety Men Taken
rom British Mines
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, Oct. 14.-By a district
vote in the coal fields, the miners have
endorsed the decision of the recent
miners' delegate conference to with-
draw the safety men from the mines.
The delegate conference decided
upon withdrawal of the safety men
when it was found impossible to reach
a settlement of the strike under the
government proposals.
The miners' federation will meet to-
morrow and decide whether to act on
the vote, but as the federation con-
trols only 40 per cent of the safety
men, while the union controling the
other 60 per cent has emphatically de-
cided against withdrawal, it is con-
sidered doubtful whether .the confed-
eration will go to this extreme.

Investigate Charges That Mc~inley
Spent $350000; Smith $250,000
In Illinois Primary
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, Oct. 14.-The reopening
of hearings in Chicago was announced
today by the United States Senate
campaign funds committee, and sub-
poenas were issued to five persons to
appear as witnesses.
At the request of Hicklin Yates,
secretary of the committee who came
to Chicago after conferring at St.
Louis with Sen. James A. Reed, Demo-
crat, Missouri, chairman of the com-
mittee, the United States marshal sent
summonses to Dr. George A. Safford,
Illinois superintendent of the Anti-
Saloon league; James D. Simpson,
president of Marshall Field company;
Elmer William, chairman of the Bet-
ter Government association and Cle-
ment Studebaker, public utilities ex-
To Conclude Testimony
The hearing was called for 10
o'clock Monday morning, ostensibly to
conclude the taking of testimony not
heard at the previous session here
when the committee developed the ex-
penditure of $250,000 in the primary
campaign of Col. Frank L. Smith, Re-
publican senatorial nominee and of
$350,000 by Sen. William B. McKinley,
seeking renomination.
It was pointed out, however, that
the place of meeting is convenient to
Indiana, where charges have been
made that political corruption in-
volved United States senatorships, and
that the committee can summon Indi-
ana witnesses handily if they conclude
the charges come within the scope of
its authority.
Secretary Yates said he had no in-
formation that the reopening of com-
mittee sessions here was prompted
by the Indiana charges, or that those
charges would be considered.
No subpoenas were issued here to-
day for Indiana witnesses, and no re-
quest 'was made to Palmer Anderson,
United States marshal, he said, to
summon any.
Safford Testifies
At its former hearing in Chicago,
the committee represented by Chair-
man Reed and Senator Lafollette, Re-
publican, Wisconsin, summoned Simp-
son, Studebaker, Safford and :Mrs.
Morrisson, but adjourned without
hearing any but Safford.
The committee developed contribu-
tions of $125,000 to the Smith cam-
paign fund by Samuel Insull, public
utilities executive, and was told by
Allan Moore, Republican national
committeeman and Smith's primary
campaign manager, that Studebaker
had been a contributor.
Safford testified that the Anti-Sa-
loon league gave its endorsement both
to Smith and McKinley in the pri-
mary. Simpson was reported to have
been a contributor to the primary
fund. Mrs. Morrisson was mentioned
by officials of the McKinley campaign
as having helped to arrange meetings
among clubwomen to endorse Ameri-
can adherence to the World court for
which McKinley voted.


Senior class elections were- con-
cluded for the week yesterday after-
noon with. the selection of officers in'
the College of Denistry and the Col-
lege of Pharmacy. - The one remain-
ing senior class election, that in the
Law school, will be held next week.
Robert Turner was elected presi-
I dent of the senior dentistry class. The
other three offices were filled as fol-.
'lows: Frank Orliman, vice-presi-
dent; William Riley, secretary; and
Sherwood Lee, treasurer. All officers
were elected unanimously.
In the pharmacy election, Darwin
Sacheroff won the presidency over
Ray Patelski by a substantial margin.
Saul Cohen was elected vice-president
although there remains a question as
to his eligibility. In the event that
'his name is not approved at the office
of the dean of students, Helen Young
will fill the office. Herbert Noel was
chosen secretary of the class, and
Stanley Pettier was elected treasurer.

If the universities do not enable
their students to learn politics and to

When asked as to the relative ex-
penditures of money in the two sys-
tems, Professor Reed remarked that
"it may be true that less money was
spent in getting nominations under
the convention system. If so, it is
chiefly due to the fact that conven-
tions could be bought more cheaply
than the electorate."
