Michigan cheers and songs, and
heroic addresses from the old grads
whose memories proved worthy, if
not imaginative, mixed happily into
the feast night for the "Champions of

Undefeated in the Conference, tied
for Big Ten honors, there was suffi-

to the "old man" as "the world's

Major Lanphier talked of "overcon-

Navy team which downed Michigan
this year after their "walloping" by
the Wolverines last year and said he
had felt the Navy would come back.
The Army man also praised his own
team, declaring that though men did
not go to West Point to play football
alone, rigorous training there places
them in splendid condition when foot-
ball comes along.

PARIS, Dec. 4.-While the rise in
the franc is causing business depres-
sion, Premier Raymond Poincare has
accomplished his self-imposed task of
Shaving France's largest budget passed
by parliament in the shortest time in
The premeier, three weeks ago, set
jDec. 3 as the date for the adoption
of the apropriations, totalling 40
billion francs, and he was only three
hours behind schedule when the
chamber, at 3 a. m. today, by a show
of hands, voted the appropriations as
a whole. The haste of the premier
in driving through the budget was.
due to his desire that the income side
might be approved and the budget
become law New Year's Day.
Since he started his work of get-
ting the budget out of the way, the
premier has been brisk and alert. He
kept the noses of the deputies to the
grindstone week days and Sundays,
tearing down obstructions and quoting

figures in answer to objections. v
The premier's rosy budget predic-1
tions are not shared by all, however.
This notably is true in business and
financial circles. The continued riseI
in the exchange rate on the franc
yesterday was attributed to the suc-'
cess with which M. Poincare's budget
proposals were going through the
Chamber of Deputies.
The phenomenal rise in the value
'of the franc within the last few!
[ months seemingly threatens another
economic crisis like that of last July,
1 when the franc fell to the lowest
levels on record. Serious business
depression and unemployment have!
followed the rise, which brought the
unit of value to 25.82 to the dollar
vesterday, as compared with a quota-
tion of less than 2 cents in New York
in mid-July. A month ago the quota-
tion was 31.10 to the dollar and two
months ago 35.52.

These were Ohio State university,

Features of the meeting were the
speeches in foreign languages by del-
gates representing foreign units simi-
lar to the Federation. Heinrich
Drier, representing the German Stu-
dent Cooperative association, address-
ed the Cbngress!in German;Lntl extend-
ed the greetings of his organization
and their desire for a closer under-
standing between the students of
Germany and the students of the
United States. He was answered in"
German by Lewis Fox, the retiring
presdent. Following this Max Ha-
bicht, representative of the Confedera-
tin Internationale des Etudientes and
.a student at Harvard addressed the
meeting in French and translated it
into English for the meeting. He ex-
plained some of the activities of the
organization and expressed the thanks
of the organization for the cooperation
extended them at all times by the
American Federation.
The meeting openel with the re-
ports of the committees on fraternities
and honor systems and the reading of
the reports brought several members
of the meeting to the floor in protest.
The findings of the committees were
accepted, however, and the resolu-
tions placed before the executive
board. The committee on fraternities
protested in their-report the idea that
the fraternities and sororities are
centerslof vicelynd immorality and that
they conform members to a certain
mold which is inevitable. T-he com-
mittee on honor systems recommend-
ed that those schools who were con-
sidering the installation of systems
should do so slowly amd with care,
emphasizing the groundwork neces-
sary for the -successful operation of
such a system.
Lewis Fox, of Harvard, the retiring
president, closed the meeting with a
speech at the request of the new presi-
dent, Fred Berger, of the University
of Cincinnati. He revived the events
of the Federation's work during the
past year and made a plea that the
work go on with new, courage and a
new vision. He stated the work that
some of the organizations of a simi-
lar nature had been doing in Europe
and told of some of his experiences
with the work of these organizations.
And he requested that, although it
was not regular procedure, the meet-
ing closed with a prayer for the com-
ing year. At the conclusion of the
prayer the convention was declared
officially closed.
China To Terminate
All Unequal Pacts
(By Associated Press)
GENEVA, Dec. 4.-China has de-
cided to terminate all unyqual treat-
ies on their expiration, Chu Chao-
i Hsin, Chinese representative at th
League of Nations, announced today
in a statement on China's recent de-
nunciation of the Sino-Belgian treaty
of 1865.
The statement says that China will
refuse to submit to the World court
the question of interpretation of the
treaty, since 'it considers the contro-
versy political rather than juridicial.
China, howevr, is willing, to submit
the case to the league assembly, the
statement declares.
Sixteeen powers have treaty rights
in China, including Belgium. Denun-
ciation early this month by the Peking
government of the Sino-Beligna treaty
was the first cancellation by China ofi
one of its series of treaties which
have long been enforced, and led to
fears that China would denounce their
remaining treaties as their terms ex-
