Suorenie Court Holds Sinclair
For Anoter Conspiracy
(By Associated rress)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 6.-The com-
monplace little courtroom where Al-
bert B. Fall and Edward L. Doheny j
are on trial for criminal conspiracyl
was wrought today by a rumbling ex-
change between a pugnacious admiral
and a quick spoken and determined
The admiral witness was John K.
Robinson, a storm center of the oil
controversy ever since the Senate
committee discovered three years ago
that hie approved on the part of the
navy of the oil leasing policy of 1922.1
His cross-examner was Owen J.{
Roberts, who has built a national.a
reputation for himself as a member ofo
the government special oil counsel. -
Many of the verbal depth-bombs'
launched by Roberts in the directionj
of the witness stand' merely served
the purpose of increasing the intensity{
of the broadside that came back in,
The engagement lasted most of th
day, and while it was at its height,
the government special counsel re-1
ceivvrd word of another major victoryI
in another quarter. Upholding th'.
action of the lower court, a Supreme
Court ruling threw out the protest of,
Fall and Harry S. Sinclair against
their indictment for criminal con
spiracy, and ordered them to trial.
Roberts said he would ask for a trial
date immediately 'following the con
elusion of the present hearing, pro-
bably in January. [
In many ways the two cases run
parallel. Fall and Sinclair must face ,
a jury as an outgrowth of the award t
of the Teapot Dome lease to Sinclair
oil interests, just as Fall and Dohen
how are on trial as a result of the Elk
Hills lease to Doheny's Pan-American
company. In the Fall-Doheny casel
the government hinges its hope of con-
viction on the $100,00. In the Fall-1
Sinclair case It will hinge on alleg-'
tion of the passage of a smaller sum c
between the .principals. j
Bocuse of the tne taken up in the1
questioning of Robinson, Secretary'E
Wilbur of the Navy dpartment did1
niot testify today and Frank J. Hogan,t
chief of the defense attorneys, said
he' might not. be called at all. Hogani
originally subpoenaed the secretary
to explain why he had warned Robin-t
son not to disclose "confidential Infor-C
miation" to the jury, but the defense
chief declared he was well satisfiedt
with the admiral's testimony and
inight let the matter rest there.
Whitney Will Give I
Dramatic Reading i1
Here OnThursday l
Edwin M. Whitney, well known plat-
form artist interpreter of plays, willI
appear here Thursday night In Hill1
auditorium as the fifth scheduled num-
herr of the annual Oratorical associa
tion lecture series. He will give a
recital of Winchell Smith's play, "The.
Fortu~ne Hunter."
Mr. Whitney was here two years ago
on the same series, at which time he
gave "Turn to the Right," and wa
extremely well received, according to
officers of the association.
The speaker, who is a native Amer-
ican, having been born in New York
state, has been on the stage for about

25 years. In this time he has appear-
ed before more than 5,000 audiences
in every part of the United States. He
atlpresent is also director of the Whit-
ney Studios of Platform Art.!
At the age of 21, shortly after his
grad uation from high school, Mr.
'Whitney enlisted in the army for duty
in Cuba during the Spanish-American
war, and at the close of the war had
reached the rank of 1st sergeant. He
then attended the Emerson College of
Oratory at Boston, from which he
graduated in 1902. He immediately
,et out upon the stage, as a vocalist
and reader, and has since then gained
a wide reputation in the latter field.
in 1904 the Whitney Studios were
founded by him, for the training of
students in the field, and he himself
has continued actively on the stage
as a reader and interpreter.

(By Asscited 'ress)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 6.-With
setting resembling a college home-
coming celebration, Congress launch-
edl into another session today with an
unwieldy program for its brief sched-
tle of about two and one-half month.
Proniptly at noon the gavel fell in
Senate and House, and the legislative
grind was on. Although a bit of the
dramatic accompanied the opening
ceremonies in the Senate when quali-
fication of Arthur R. Gould, of Maine
was challenged as he was waiting to
be sworn in, the rest of the procedure
Nvas gone through perfunctorily in
both houses.
After old friendships were again
united and new ones acquired, a hush
fell over the broad chambers' of the
big white building on the hill as the
clock struck 12. Vice-President
Dawes and Speaker Longworth
brought down their mallets, prayer
was offered and the routine began.
Each house heard a number of for-I
fimal resolutions, seated new mem-
bers to fill vacancies, and within an
hous, adjourned out of respect to the
memory of the late Albert D. Cum-I
mins, of Iowa, and the late Sen. S. N.
Fernald, of Maine.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 6.-Congress
had hardly drawn its first breath to-

Of Installation Of

Speaking before the fourth regular
meeting of the Men's Educational clubz
of the University, Dean Allen S. Whit-
ney of the School of Education, last
night outlined the installation of the
department and its growth in the last
few years. He told of the repeated
attempts of the late President Angell
to establish a department of education
and of his final success in 1879 after
bitter opposition froni normal schools
and authorities all over the country.
"At the time of the giving of the
first course,, a two-hour affair, the
only literature available for the pro-
fessor was what he could obtain from
the Encyclopedia Britannica," said
Dean Whitney. "Michigan was the first
