Official Quarters Give No Disclosure
Of Intentions In Regard
To Crisis
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 24.-While
bleak official silence met every at-
tempt to disclose the Washington ad-
ministration's intentions in the Mex-
ican crisis, Senator Borah of Idaho,
chairman of the Senate foreign rela-
tions committee today published his
views on the situation, declaring that
there "is not going to be any break
with Mexico."
The state department's position was
that Mexico had agreed to the publi-
cation of the oil and land law corre-
spondence, and that spoke for itself.
On the other hand, however ,the Idaho
senator said that after hearing the
correspondence that he had not found
"any threat of any ultimatum."
Senator Hess, Republican, Ohio, and
Senator Norris, Republican, Nebraska,
also issued brisk statements. The
Ohioan said if American rights in
Mexico are placed in :jeopardy, "we
should sever relations," but added
that so far they are not placed in jeo-
pardy." Senator Norris declared he
did not believe the "stern attitude of
the state department was justified."
State Department Silent
The only hint dropped at the state
department was that it looked upon
the Mexican demand for "concrete
cases" as referring to futre specific
instances which may arise when the
new Mexican law becomes effective in
January. Whether the implied Mex-
ican invitation for further diplomatic
exchanges would lead to renewed cor-
respondence and more drastic steps
of protest by the United States was
not revealed.
No attempt was made in official
quarters to soften the impression that
relations are strained almost to the
breaking point and that any definite
act of enforcement of the nationaliza-
tion policy against Americans by Mex-
ico might serve to precipitate a rup-.
ture. w
In Latin-American diplomatic cir-
cles, a tendency was indicated to re-
gard the situation as one suited to
arbitrational treatment at The Hague.
It was suggested that the conflict be-!
tween Mexico's new system of owner-
ship, and the position of the United
States that rights obtained by its na-
tionals under the old system can not
be cut down to fit into the new, seemed
to be an "ideal" one for international
arbitration to decide.
Kellogg Confers With Coolidge
Secretary Kellogg went to the White
House twice during the day to confer
with President Coolidge but it was
indicated that his visits were not re-
lated to the Mexican crisis. He saw
Ambassador Tellez in the afternoon
just before his second trip to the
White House.
Senator Borah after expressing
doubt that American-Mexican 'rela-
ions would be broken, summed up
his opinion in this way:
"Mexico is seeking to work out cer-
tain property problems to change the
nature of property, as it were, in
Mexico. And the state department is
seeking, while this protest is going
on, to protect the property rights of
American citizens. But it does not
necessarily follow that we are going
to break with Mexico."
Russian Envoy Dies
At London Embassy
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, Nov. 24.-Despite the
heroic efforts of Lord Dawson, the
king's personal physician, to save the

life of Leonid Krassin, the Soviet
envoy died today in the old Czarist
embassy, from pernicious anaemia.;
In his death, British officials see the
passing of an able diplomat who was
expected to do much toward re-estab-
lishing the relations of Russia with'
the Western nations.

No Students To Be Allowed To Leave
Either Gymnasium And Return
During The Evening
By unanimous vote of the members
at their meeting last night, the 1927
J-Hop committee wentuon record as
being opposed to the use of liquor in
any form at the annual event. No
stronger action could be taken, mem-
bers of the committee believe, at the
present time.
Students will not be allowed to leave
either gymnasium "a d return at any
time during the evening, and further
rules for the conduct of the booths
will be adopted in the near future.
The annual contest for decoration
designs will close December 1, as was
originally intended, and all students
wishing to enter the contest should
submit. their idesigns before that date.
There will be a prize of $25 to the
originator of the accepted scheme. I
The committee also voted against
the use of corsages at the party, and
discussed the possible orchestras for
the event. It is planned again to have
three organizations of national repu-
tation, and though tentative groups
are in mind none of the contracts have
been signed.
Reports on the possibilities of
broadcasting and taking moving pic-
tures at the event were also discussed,
and while no definite action was
taken, members of the committee were
authorized to act on both questions.
it was definitely decided that moving
pictures will again be taken, and it
is very probable that the music will
be broadcast.
Rumanian Queen
Sails For Home
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Nov. 24.-Queen Marie
of Rumania and her children, Prince
Nicholas and Princess Ileana, today
were aboard the steamship Berengaria,
bound for Bucharest, where the king
is ill. The queen bade farewell to her
"dear America" by radio after a 30-
day tour of the United States in a
special train that covered 10,000 miles.
Her last full day in the new world
was filled with excitement, in some of
which she did not share. The police
bomb squad confiscated bundles of in-
cendiary circulars in which the rulers
of Rumania were assailed for mis-
treatment of peasants and the laboring

Point Out That Lower Classes Are
Increasing Three Times As
Fast As Higher Classes
"World War and Poverty, and Birth
Control as a Cure of Them" was the
topic of Dr. James F. Cooper's lecture
in University Hall auditorium yester-
day afternoon. He was the second
speaker of the series under the au-
spices of the Industrial Research com-
mission of the Student Christian as-
sociation. ;The aim of his speech was,.
not to give an absolute and immediate
cure, but to show the statistical rela-
tions of war and poverty to the birth
Tr. Cooper is the medical director
of the Clinical Research department
of the American Birth Control league.
He has investigated the subject in
China, at Fukien Union university, and
in Europe, where he served with the
medical corps of the British army
throughout the war. For the last two
years he has been on a lecture tour
In the United States where has has
assisted the American Birth Control
league by his talks.
"The less people knew about the sex;
problem the better off they were con-
sidered," stated Dr. Cooper in compar-
ing the old ideas to the new, "while
today the topic is openly discussed.
The problem of birth control i the,
main topic of many groups of sociol-
ogists, agriculturists, biologists and.
social workers throughout the world
and should be of profound interest to
all of us.I
Population Increasing
"The population is increasing rap-
idly because of the improved medical
treatment and the ease with which we
can avert famine through the use of!
fast communication and transporta-
tion. In the last 65 years the popula-
tion of the world has doubled due to
the action of these forces and it is in-
evitable that at this rate the world
will reach the saturation point. This
country has already taken' steps to
avert the possible over crowding of
the land through the immigration
laws," the speaker further stated.
The first international conference
on population will meet at Geneva
some time next year through the ef-..
forts of the agriculturists who gave
out the figures that it takes two and
a half acres of land to produce enough'
food for one person for a year. Ac-
cording to their estimates the world,
at the present rate, will be over-
crowded in 200 years. Dr. Cooper,
allowing that the estimate was cor-
rect said that the over-population of
a country brought on war because
of the flux of people from one country!
to another in search of work.
"The lower classes, from a biolog-
ical point of view, are incireasing
three times as fast as the higher
classes." This has led to legislation
in a good number of states that aref
trying to use a preventitive system of
cure. The two types of prevention
that are in practical use are segrega-
tion and sterilization either of which
will be a good preventitive. The
earlier legislation tended toward seg-
regation and the more modern laws
tend toward sterilization.

Michigan battle drew 94,000, the larg-
est paid attendance ever attracted to
a football game in history-although!
100,000 tickets for the Army-Navy
have been sold.
The University of Chicago team
failed to win a Conference victory and
scored only two touchdowns against '
Big Ten opponents they "reversed the
field" and finished first in total home
attendance and receipts for the season.
Chicago lead Illinois, the next .
school, by 10,000 in total attendance1
and were more than $100,000 ahead of
the Illini in total receipts.
The largest single gate of the season
was the $170,000 at Michigan-Ohio.'
This was greater than the entire sea-
son receipts of Indiana, Purdue and
Iowa combined.
New stadiums at Minnesota, North-
western and Chicago helped to in-
.crease attendance at those schools 1
and the new field in prospect for i
Michigan next fall will give the Yost-
men a chance for greater attendance.
They had three sellout crowds of

most vital spots in the government
criminal conspiracy case against Al-
bert D. Fall and Edward L. Doheny.
Then abruptly it was halted as it
moved to perhaps the most important
point of all, the testimony of the mul-
ti-millionaire oil man before the Sen-
ate oil committee that he advanced
$100,000 to the former interior secre-
tary after negotiations for leases in
the Elk Hills, California naval reserve
had begun.
Counsel for the government offered
this testimony in evidence and in-
stantly defense counsel objected. The
jury was excused and after the bat-
tery of legal talent directing the case ,
had conferred with Justice Hoehling
at the bench argument one the ques-
tion was overauntilmcourt reconvenes
Develop Dramatic Story
Before their rapid presentation was
halted temporarily, prosecution law-
yers had developed the dramatic story
of the effort of Fall to conceal from
the Senate committee the source of
the $100,000, carrying the story down
to the point where he asked his per-
sonal friend, Edward McLean, pub-
lisher of the Washington Post, to sub-
cribe to an untruth.
Besides McLean, prominent witnes-
ses today included Senator Walsh,
Democrat, Montana, Prosecutor of the
Senate inquiry, Senator Lenroot, Re-
publican, Wisconsin, a member of -the
oil committee, and Josephus Daniels,
secretary of the navy in the Wilson
The millionaire publisher's 'testi-
mony furnished the thrills of the day
to which the lease examination of
Senator Walsh came as an anti-cli-
max. As the dignified, stern-faced
Montanan took the witnes's chair, the
crowd that packed the court room be-
came tense in anticipation of a long
direct cross-examination of the man
who persisted in the oil inquiry until
a scandal that wrought the capital
was developed.
Walsh Testifies
If such a dramatic chapter of the
trial is in store, lawyers on both sides
deferred its writing, for Senator
Walsh was asked only a few questions
in reply to which he stated that he
caused to be called the meeting of the
oil committee on Jan. 24, 1924, at
which Doheny testified he was the
real source of the $100,000 which Fall
used to enlarge his New Mexico ranch
Preceding Senator Walsh to the
stand, McLean produced correspond-
ence passed in early November, 1921,
in which he declined a proposal of
Fall to interest himself in branch
holdings adjacent to those of the for-
mer interior secretary.
Shortly after that, Fall called on
the publisher personally and persuad-
ed him to advance $100,000 in checks
against Fall's personal note ,which
was to be called within ten days un-
less McLean decided to go into the
ranch. Before that period expired,
McLean said Fall returned the check,
explaining he had obtained the money
"from another source."
Before McLean was called, Senator
Lenroot had told of a visit which he
and Senator Smoot, Republican, Ut1h,
another member of the Senate oil
committee, had made to Fall at the
Wardman Park hotel a day or two
before Christmas, 1923, at which they
were informed that McLean was the
source of the funds.
