New Statutes Will Go Into Effect
Jan. 1; State Department
Publishes Letters
(By Assaociated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 23.-Smolder-
ing disputes with Mexico over appli-
cation of her new laws to American oil
and mining interests are drawing to a
On Jan. 1, foreign oil and land
owners in Mexico must agree not tc
seek diplomatic protection of their
home government for their holdings,
or, by the new laws, they must for-
feit them to the Mexican government.
It is not expected that the foreign
companies will do that, and it is not
expected that the Calles government
will recede from, its demand.
Without comment, the state depart-
ment published today the hitherto
secret correspondence with the Mex-
ican government on the subject. The
Calles government bluntly takes the
position that Mexico is passing to a
new ownership system of nationaliza-
tion of natural resources, which "re-
quired" that old rights adjust them-
selves to new principles "in the gen-
eral interests of the nation."
Break May Come
The American government, in brief,
takes the position that without the
assurance, given in 1923, that the new
government in Mexico would respect
foreign rights and property, recogni-
tion by the United States never would
have been extended.
It would not be unprecedented if
Ambassador Sheffield, enroute today
from Cuba to Vera Crux on his way to
Mexico City, were recalled. Such a
step is short of a break in diplomatic
relations'. 1
Mexico Warned
The Mexican government has been
warned, between the lines at least,
that diplomatic relations will be en-
dangered if it deprives American
citizens in Mexico "of the full owner-
ship and enjoyment" of their property

Other Prominent Speakers Arranged
By S. C. A. Industrial Research
As the second speaker of the series
under the auspices of the Industrial
Research commission of the Studentf
Christian association, Dr. James F.
Cooper will give a talk at 4:15 o'clock

control as clinical instructor in the
obstetrical department of the Boston
university Medical school, when he)
made visits to the slums of Bston.
After leaving there, he served as pro-
fessor of clinical laboratory methods
in Fukien Union university at Foo-
chow, China, where he carried on ex-
tensive researches into the population
problems of the Orient. He served
throughout the war with the medical
corps of the British army. For the
past two years Dr. Cooper has been

intricate Problems of Ice Formation
Explained By N Uill
Dealing with experiences encounter-
ed this summer while experimenting
with his treatment of disemminating
icebergs and ice jams, Dr. Howard T.
Barnes, professor of physics at Mc-
Gill university, Montreal, Canada, gave
an illustrated University lecture yes-
terday afternoon in Natural Science
auditorium, on the various phases of
ice formation and dissipation. Dr.
Barnes is thought to be the only
distinctively ice engineer in the world.
"Ice engineering," explained Pro-
fessor Barnes, "is the process of ice
control and prevention. Ice particles,"
he added, "are present in water at all
temperatures, however, when the
water reaches the freezing point, the
particles become collodial and at the
slightest drop in temperature, they
attach themselves to each other and
thus grow in size. The whole
problem of ice prevention then sim-'
ply consists of keeping the water a
slight fraction of a degree above the
freezing point.
"No matter what the temperature is
about a body of water, the fluid will
not freeze if the sun is shining upon
it," Dr. Barnes went on. He then ex-
plained the powerful forces of the sun
in this connection. Colored sunrises
also play an important part in this
respect, believes Dr. Barnes, and he
is making a special study of this
Dr. Barnes ;tas gained considerable
notice by his work with the Pennsyl-
vania ice jam last spring. Two cities,
Oil City and Franklin, were threatened
to be enveloped by the existing con-
ditions and a hurry call was sent for
the noted ice engineer. Dr. Barnes
arrived and spent more than a week
in perfecting plans to break the jam.

Received Nation-wide Attention When
In High School For Prowess
In All Major Sports
Benny Oosterbaan, '28, star end and
unanimous selection on mythical all-
American elevens last year, was elect-
ed captain of the 1927 Wolverine team
at a meeting of the football squad
The new captain is one of the lead-
ing football players in the country
and is considered all-American caliber
for the teams to be chosen this year.
Football f o 1 o w e r s remember
Oosterbaan best as the receiver of
Friedman's passes, and it is this that
has marked his play since his start
in the Michigan -State game of 1925.
Last week, the captain-elect firmly
stamped his name in Michigan's hall
Coach Fielding H. Yost, in
commenting on the election of
football captain yesterday, made
the following statement: "It is
an honor worthily bestowed. I
have never seen greater end-
play than Oosterbaan's work
this year, especially that shown
in the Ohio State game. He
should make a great leader.
of fame by snatching up a fumble in
the Minnesota game and racing 0
yards to the goal line to score the
touchdown which gave the much-out-
played Wolverines a victory and a
share in the Conference champion-
Since his entrance in the Uni-
versity, Oosterbaan has won four
major letters, two for football, and
one each for basketball and baseball.
An end on the football team, out-
fielder on the baseball team, and
forward on the basketball team is the
list of athletic accomplishments in
his two years of play here. Every
Michigan team on which he has play-
ed had either won or tied for first in
the Big Ten title race.
Played for Muskegon
Oosterbaan began his athletic
career at Muskegon high school where
he accounted for nine major letters
during his four years of competition.
Entering in February, 1921, he played
basketball for four years, football for
three, and competed in track for two
years. Baseball was not listed on his
high school athletic program at that
Elected to captain his team in 1923
and 1924, Oosterbaan began to show
his worth I as a basketball star and
was chosen center on the mythical
State teams chosen both years, as well
as being honored with the captaincy
of the 1924 contingent. The latter
team, which won the state title, en-
tered the national tournament held at
Bartlett gymnasium, ,Chicago, and
finished fourth, Oosterbaan being
named for national honors as first
team center. In his last year, the
Muskegon star managed to win 25
games on its schedule, but wasbeaten
by Detroit Southeastern high school
for the championship.
On All-State Team
The football teams on which
Oosterbaan played had similar suc-
cess. In 1921 and 1923 the eleven won
first state honors, and in 1921 and
1922 Oosterbaan was elected as all-
state end.
Although Oosterbaan has not cdm-
peted in track events under th Maize
and Blue, he earned laurels for him-

self at Muskegon as a javelin and
discus thrower in 1923 and 24. In
the latter year he broke the javelin
record which had existed since 1909,
setting a new mark of 123 feet,4

two men and one woman, who wereM
found guilty of violating the Univer-!
sity ruling regarding the parking of
cars on the campus, were prohibited
from using their cars in Ann Arbor
from today until the Christmas ,vaca-,

at its meeting yesterday afternoon.
The names of the students are with-
held by The Daily.
Parking on the campus is limited to
members of the faculty who have ob-
tained the necessary tags from they

this rule by students, as well as in-

are dealt with by this committee.
There are 134 signed permits to

office, and 73 incomplete applications.
Students must call for these at once,
