To Visit Detroit.
(By Associated Press)
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 18.-Queen
Marie of Roumania virtually conclud-
ed her American tour here tonight
and made ready for a quick run to
New York where she will sail for home
on the first ship available.
Distressed by private advices from
Bucharest concerning the condition of
King Ferdinand, she summoned mem-
bers of her suite and American ad-
visers today and directed that she be
taken as soon as possible to the bed-
side of her husband. Dispatches from
Arrang'nments Are Cancelled
For Queen Marie' Reception
President Clarence Cook Littlel
sent the fllowing telegram to1
the Roumanian legation in Wash-j
ington: "Please express to her4
Majesty our sincere regret- for

abroad have described the king's ill-
ness as inflammation of the lower in-
testine and as cancer.
Seine confusion attended efforts
of train officials to outline a new
itinerary for the royal party for the
trip to New York and tonight definite
information still was lacking. Tenta-
tively the Queen and Princess Ileana
will go direct to New York while
Prince Nicholas pays brief visits to
Detroit and Cleveland to see automo-
bile plants and to greet Roumanian
residents. Arrival and departure
dates have not been established, al-
though Marie is expected to sail No-
vember 24 on the Berengeria.
It was definitely announced, how-
ever, that the plan to have the royal
children see the Army and Navy foot-
ball game in Chicago is cancelled, as
is the proposed trip from Washington
through Atlantic City, Lakewood, N.
J., White Sulphur Springs, West
Virginia and Richmond, Virginia.
Although she had waited in vain for
further advices from Bucharest, Queen
Marie showed no traces of her anxiety
today, as she followed Louisville's re-
ception program. She visited the
birthplace of Abraham Lincoln at i
Hogensville and "My Old Kentucky
Home" at Bardstown, but decided to
omit a civic banquet and ball tonight.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 18.-The Rou-
manian legation announced tonight on
behalf of Queen Marie that, due to
anxiety over the health of King Fer-
dinand, the Queen had deemed it
proper to cancel the remainder of her
American tour and proceed home at
the' earliest possible moment.
The legatin's announcement said:
"Due to the anxiety regarding the
health of His Majesty the King, Her
Majesty the Queen thought it advis-
able to renounce to her deepest regret
her entire program.
"Leaving Louisville tonight and pro-
ceeding directly to New York, where
she will probably arrive about Satur-
day morning Her Majesty and her
suite 'will sail for Europe the first

Edit6r's note: This is the twelfth of a
series of interviews with prominent authori-
ties on the crime situation in the United
States. Copyright 1926 by The Michigan
The Daily has undertaken a large.
order in its present review of the
crime situation, and there appears to'
be an interesting variety of opinion on
the subject. It is, to be sure, a good
deal like Mark Twain's weather, in
that everybody is talking about it, but
little is done. A fact in the problem
which is both tragictand encouraging
is that the mass of the criminal pop-
ulation which now engages so much
attention is made up of young men in
Stheir early twenties. This is tragic
because it reveals a great social
waste ;it encourages because it wouldr
seem that, if only we could discover
how these boys "get that way," we
should be able to direct their energies
into other channels.
Many theories have held sway as to
why people are "bad." That they are
possessed of the devil; that they are
descendents of Adam; that they are

1 just born so; orsthat they are men-
I tally diseased, are all more or less
familiar hypotheses. It is not clear
that these generalizations have en-
larged very much our understanding
of the problem. ' +
The theory of mental disease is theI
most scientific and illuminating of
those we have mentioned; yet so com-
petent an observer as Healey states
in his most recent publication that
feeble-mindedness, psychotic condi-
tion and other forms of abnormal men-
tality have no all-determining influ-
ence in the production of delinquency,
unless they are aggravated by a mor-
ally unfavorable environment. The
matter appears to be somewhat asi
follows: Whatever be the good qual-
ities of an individual, a good environ-
ment is necessary for their full and
normal development. On the other
hand, innate, undesirable qualitiesI
may be inhibited by a carefully ad-
justed environment, at least to the ex-
tent of preventing out and out crim-
inal behavior. In any case, we can-
not escape the importance of the so-
cial environment in explaining the

Cancellation Of Visit Of Queen Marie
Paves Way For Removal Of Board.
From Yost Field House
Due to the cancellation of the visit,
of Queen Marie, of Roumania, Hill
auditorium is once more available,
and will be used tomorrow afternoon
for the grid-graph of the Michigan-
Minnesota football game. The board
will not be operated at the Field
house, as was announced yesterday.
This change makes the former price
rates once more possible, and they
will be used. The tickets already sold
marked "Yost Field House" will be
honored at the doors as main-floor
For the first time this year, the Var-
sity band will appear at the grid-
graph and will play before the game
starts and between halves. According
to present plans, the band will make
the regular march in formation across
the campus, but instead of marching
south on State street, it will turn
north on State, and then east on N.
The management wishes -to apolo-
gize for the absence of a cheerleader
at the grid-graph of the Michigan-
Ohio State game, and has made ar-
rangements to have William A. War-
rick, Varsity cheerleader, lead the
crowd in songs and yells tomorrow.
He will also make all announcements
as are necessary and read the scores
of other games.
From all indications the crowd at
the auditorium tomorrow will far out-
number, any of the year. Tickets are
on sale at Graham's, Slater's, Wahr's,
Hueston's, the Union, Geo. Moe's sport
shop, and Calkins-Fletcher's drug
stores. The box-office of Hill audi-
torium will also sell tickets from the
time the doors open until the game
starts. The prices are 50 cents for
Rmain-floor seats, and 35 cents for bal-
cony, seats. Doors will be opened at
2 o'clock to allow the crowd time to
get seated before the game negins.
Reports from the game will also be
given at the matinee performance of
the Majestic theater.

Society Here Tonight.
Thomas Arkle Clark, dean of stu-
dents of the University of Illinois, will
be the principal speaker at the Phi
Eta Sigma, installation banquet at
6:30 tonight i'n the Union. Dr. Clark
is one of the founders of the fra-;
ternity which was established at the
University of Illinois in 1923 and is
said to be the creator of the office of?
Dean of Students.
Other speakers on the program will
be Dean John R. Effinger of the lit-
erary college, J. A. Bursley, dean of
students, and Stewart S.Howe of
Illinois, national president of the

faculty include beside those mention-
ed, President Clarence Cook Little and

ed great interest in the purpose for
which the fraternity was founded and
its organization on the campus.
The fraternity was founded for the
purpose of stimulating freshman
scholarship. It is purely scholastic
in character the members necessarily
having an average of half A and half
B during their first semester or entire

lation ceremonies.

Professor Brown Heads State Drive;
Appeal for Fund to Continue
National Services.
Announcement of the personnel of
of the Michigan committee of the
American Historical Association En-
dowment fund drive was made known
i today by Prof. Everett S. Brown of
the political science department, who
is executive secretary and director ofI
the state drive.
The committee for Michigan in--
cludes President Emeritus Harry B.
Hutchins, Regent William L. Clem-
ents, donor of the library bearing his
name, which is devoted to historical
work; Regent Junius E. Beal; Prof.
Arthur L. Cross, Prof. Ulrich B.
Phillips and Prof. Claude H. Van
Tyne of the history department. Other
members of the committee include
prominent historians, newspapermen,
philanthropists and business men
throughout the state.
Society is 15 Years Old.
On the one hundred and fiftieth an-
niversary of the achievement of the
independence of the United States, the
American Historical Association is ap-
pealing for a fund of one million dol-
lars in order that it may continue ana
enlarge its national services. Former
Senator Albert J. Beveridge is chair-
man of the national committee in
charge of the drive.
One of the recent activities of the
American Historical Association is of
particular interest to Michigan. The
late Senator Samuel I. Ralston of
Indiana sponsored a bill providing for
the editing and publication of docu-
ments in Washington embodying the
action of the national government and
officials with reference to the organi-
zation of the Western territories.
Congress passed the bill but neglect-
ed to provide funds for the work.
At its anual meeting last December
in Ann Arbor, the association passed
a resolution requesting Congress to
make the necessary funds available. A
first appropriation of $20,000 was.
made and Dr. Newton D. Mereness has
begun 'the work of publication underI
the direction of the chief of the!
Divisions of Publications in the State
Department. These documents, when
completely published, will tell the true
story of the westward movement ofI
the United States into the Old North-
west and across the continent.
Promotes Historical Study.
Dedicated to the promotion of
American history and of the history
in America, the American Historical,
Association has since its foundation
forty-two, years ago proved a most ef-
ficient agency in directing and co-
ordinating h i s t o r i c a 1 interestsi
throughout the United States. Among
those who have served as president of
the association are two presidents of
the United States, Theodore Roosevelt
and Woodrow Wilson, and such promi-
nent men as James B. Angell, former
president of the University of Michi-
gan, Henry Adams, George F. Hoar,
Charles Francis Adams, Alfred T.
Mahan, Andrew D. White, Georgej
Bancroft and Goidwin Smith.


'Ensian Heads Urge
Seniors T o Have
Photos Taken Soon
With 1,200 seniors who have not yet
visited the photographers for sittings
and but 24 days left, danger that many
graduating students will not have their
pictures in the 1927 Michiganensian is
seen, by 'Ensian officials. At the same
time last year, although only !800
photographs remained to be taken, sev-
eral students were left out due to the
lateness of their sittings.
Seniors are urged to see the photo-
graphers right away, since, with the
number left;, the studios will have to
accommodate 50 .a day and it is fear-
ed that by Dec. 1 there will be so

The time cannot be extended after
vacation due to the fact that pictures
must be sorted and mounted before
Jan. 15, the day on which photographs
are to reach the engravers. Students
could not be accommodated at any
rate following vacation, since the
studios will be working on the organ-
ization photographs.
Order slips should be purchased
within the next ten days at the Mich-
iganensian office in the Press build-
ing between 2 and 5 o'clock in the

Is Chairman Of The League Of Nations
Committee Of Jurists Working On
International Law
Europe's view of the American
World court reservations, and the
present probability of the United
States' entrance into that judiciary
will be discussed by George W. Wick-
ersham, formerly attorney general
under President Taft, at 8 o'clock to-
night in the Natural Science auditori-
um. Dean Henry M. Bates of the Law
school will preside at the meeting,
which is being conducted by the
League of Nations Non-Partisan as-
Mr. Wickersham will explain the
procedure of the conference of states
signatories to the Permanent court of
International Justice statute, which
he attended while in Geneva last sum-
mer. He is chairman of. the League
of Nations committee of distinguished
jurists working on the codification of
international law.
During his stay here, Mr. Wicker-
sham will be the guest of the Lawyers'
club, where he is to attend a luncheon
of the law faculty this noon. He will
be given a dinner at the Union tonight
by a group of the faculty.
Spoke Here Three Years Ago
Mr. Wickersham spoke here three
years ago, at which time he pro,
nounced the Court "the crowing
achievement of the League," due
largely to the efforts' of Elihu Root.
The latter was on the league commit-
tee which drew up the court statute,
as provided in Article XIV of the
league covenant. Another American
jurist, John Bassett Moore, is now a
judge on the World court bench.
In his address of 1923 Mr. Wicker-
sham stated that "so long as any par-
ticular nation regards itself as su-
perior to all the rest of the world and
is so mistrustful of itself that it is
afraid to sit in conference with other
nations and discuss their differences
in public view, just so will all its pro-
claimed desire for peace will seem,
if it is not actually, hollow and insin-
In regard to the power of the court
to stop wars, he said, "It may be con-
ceded that an international court will
not stop any war more than national
courts stop crime; but every time an
international question is settled by
peaceful menas, the possibility of the
dispute ripening into a cause of war
is removed."
is New York Attorney
The speaker attended Lehigh uni
versity for two years, and graduated
from the University of Pennsylvania
law school in 1880. He holds hon-
orary degrees from Pennsylvania, Le-
high, and Harvard universities, and
from Hobart college. He has prac-
ticed law in New York city since 1882.
Mr. Wickersham was attorney gen-
eral under President Taft from 1909
to 1913. Among other pub:ic offices
which he has held, he was chairman
of the Judiciary committee of the
New York Constitutional convention
in 1915, president of the Bar associa-
tion of New York from 1914 to 1917,
president of the American Prison as-
sociation, and is a trustee of the Car-

University of Pennsylvania, Barnard
