Inside Story Of Dissension At Meeting
Of Hooded Order In Wasigton
Is 1Disclosed


"The plea for the reduction of tariff
rates set forth in the manifesto signed
by many internationally known econ-
omists and bankers points the way to-
ward the solution of many European
financial difficulties," said Prof. Clare
E. Griffin, yesterday. "Ever since the
war, when new countries were formed1
and each one was so anxious to pro-I
tet itself, high tariff rates have
hindered the return to normalcy."
Conditions in Europe are essenti-
ally different than those in this
country, said Professor Griffin. In
Europe there are many countries, so
small that they cannot find a market1
for their products at home, nor pro-

realizing more and more that high
tariffs are a burden. Manufacturers
no longer need protection to compete
with production of other countries.
Free trade has long been the
philosophy of economists, declared
Professor Griffin. However, changes
can only be affected when producers

established some of the weaker indus-
tries will suffer immediate hardships,
but when the transitory stage is
passed, conditions in the economic

Declaring that there is more re-
ligious interest among college stu-
dents at the present time than there
ever has been in the past, Dr. Joseph
Fort Newton, in an interview follow-
ing his convocation address Sunday
characterized modern youth as the
"best generation of young people the
world has ever seen."
"Some ministers ought to get down
on their kness and ask forgiveness for
some of the things they have said in
criticism of the present younger gen-
eration," remarked the Philadelphia
Dr. Newton explained that he has
had a splendid opportunity to observe
and study the tendencies of young men
and women by reason of'the fact that


he speaks before a college or univer-
sity audience once each month, after
which he mingles with the students
for two or three days for personal
contact. He has addressed student
bodies in every leading university and
college in the country.
If anything, the standard of morals
today is higher than ever, in the opin-
ion of Dr. Newton. He declared there
has been positively no moral let down
among the young men and women of
America, and that the alarms of many
persons on this score is "pure bunk."
"The only difference I can find be-
tween the young people of today and
those of a generation ago," said Dr.
Newton, "is that youth today does
those things on the front porch which
we did, in our day, on the rear stoop."

Dr. S. G. Morley, assistant in middle
'American archaeology at the Carnegie
Institution in Washington, wilt deliver
a lecture on "The Results of the 1926
Field Saeson" at 4:15 o'clock today in
Natural Science auditorium.
Dr. Morley is the foremost authority
of the world on the hieroglyphis writ-!
ings of the Maya Indians, who lived in'
Guatemala and Yucatan 2,000 years
ago. The Maya Indians are very in-
teresting to the whole western
hemisphere because it is said that they
were the Greeks of the western world
and that they parralleled the Greeks
in their civilization. It is known from{
their writings and from the instru-
ments that they left behind that they
were interested, not only in art and
literature, but also in astronomy and
kindred subjects.
Dr. Morley has spent the last eight
summers in the region of Chichen Itza,
in the center of the Maya field. Dur-
ing that time he has unearthed many
cities that were not known to have"
existed and has made many excava-
tions that have yielded rich funds for
the anthropologists of the world. It

In a special effort to get students
from other cities in Michigan to vote
by mail for the election, November 2,
the Republican club will keep its
registration offices on the campus
open today and tomorrow, and the one
in the Union open until Saturday. Due
to the time required for mailing, it is
now too late for out of the state voters
to register, but those living in
Michigan will have time to register,
apply for ballots, and mail the latter,

pect to party affiliation.

them notaried. Headquarters will be
open for this purpose until Saturday
Women are especially urged to reg-
ister for the election. Elizabeth
Kennedy '27, is chairman of the wo-
men's committee, and is making every
effort to interest the women students.
They can register at any one of the
offices. It is emphasized that at this
election not only county officers, but
the governorship and all other state
offices are involved.
The club was founded more than
thirty years ago, and has brought
many nationally known speakers and
political candidates here for public
appearances. The last of these,was
the Republican nominee for governor,
Fred W. Green, '98L. Further in-
formation on the present campaign can#
be obtained from James R. Depuy,

BRUSSELS, Oct. 25. - Belgian
money will go on a new gold basis to-
morrow with the creation of a new
monetary standard-the Belga-equal
to five paper francs and with a definite
gold value of .209211 grams.
The Belgian franc will be stabilized
at 174.31 to the pound sterling, or
about one-seventh of its pre-war val-
ue, but it will no longer be quoted on
the foreign exchange markets of the
world. Instead there will be the
Belga for thew purposes of foreign
Belgian money, which has fluctuated
in value from day to day, since the
Germans invaded the country in 1914,
now has the support of the leading
banks of issue of Europe, the United
S tates and Asia. This support is, ex-
pressed in an international loan to
Belgium of $100,000,000 which will be
used to keep the Belgian franc up to
its new par level which will make it
about 36 to the dollar.
On Market Tomorrow
The loan will be placed upon the
markets tomorrow. It will bear in-
terest at seven per cent, plus one per
cent for amortization and will run for
a term of 30 years. The Federal Re-
serve bank of the United States, the
Bank of England, the Bank of France,
the German Reichsbank and similar
banks in Japan, Holland, Sweden,
Austria and Hungary have appeared
to support the loan. In addition $35,-
000,000 in credit will be placed at the
disposition of the Bank of Belgii
to assist in carrying out the immedi-
ate stabilization plans.

NEW YORK, Oct. 25.-Assuming the
major burden in the financial support
in the Belgian stabilization program,
the United States tomorrow will ab-
sorb $50,000,000 of a $100,000,000 loan
and through the Federal Reserve bank
participate in a $35,000,000 credit for
the purpose of restoring Belgian cur-
rency to a gold basis.
Many Nations Cooperate
The operation to which America
lends its aid marks one of the most
important post-war steps in re-estab-
lishing normal financial conditions
in Europe, approaching in its signifi-
cance the rehabilitation of Germany's
finances and the return of Great Brit-
ain to the gold standard. Seldom has
the cooperation of so many countries
been enlisted for the protection of
another nation's financial affairs. Ger-
many, Austria and Hungary, allied
against Belgium in the World war are
now united in their financial support
of the stabilization program, partici-
pating through their central banks in
the international credit.
The London portion of the loan will
amount to 7,250,000npounds sterling
and the remainder will be divided
among the investment markets of Hol-
land, Switzerland and Sweden.

ment here today from Senator Reed,!

ship for educators, who desire to ad-

He declared that a man must be able
to sell his ability in a tactful manner,
while attempting to secure positions
and promotions, and cited several in-
stances where promising young edu-
cators had damaged their positions by
methods of salesmanship not in ac-
