Senator Pomerene Ends Argument
Government With Plea For
Conviction Of Doheny


(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 15.-The,
fate of Albert B. Fall and Edward
L. Doheny, on trial on charges of
criminal conspiracy in connection
with naval oil leases, will not beI
known before tomorrow.
The case was given to the jury
at 2:47 today. At 10 o'clock, after
seven hours and thirteen minutes
deliberation, it was locked up for
the night.+
WASHINGTON, Dec. 15.-Court and

12 young men filed into their jury
room at 2:47 o'clock this afternoon.
Three alternatives were before them
-conviction, acquittal, or a report of
inability to agree.
Thedefendants, Albert B. Fall, for-'
ner secretary of the interior, and
Edward L. Doheny, wealthy Califor-
nia oil man, were inseparably linked
together in the blank verdict forms
which the jurors carried with them
to their drab quarters. The two had
to be convicted or acquitted together,

In order that students who are
planning on attending the 1927 Sum-
mer session may arrange their second
semester program accordingly, 'an-
nouncement of the courses for the
summer period will be ncluded inthe
time schedule of the literary college
iich will be available for students
at the time they make their second
semester elections, according to the
statement of Edward H. Kraus, dean
of the Summer session and dean of
the College of Pharmacy.
With the approval of the budget, for
$235,824.44 which contains an increase
of $10,384.85 over that for the 1926
session, expansion will be permitted
in those fields which have appealed
to advance and graduate students and
will also -afford ample means of pro-
viding for the needs of the regular
!students, stated Dean Kraus.
(Because of the Colloid sympoium,
which will be held at the University

session and will be attended by sev-
eral hundred chemists, it planned to
obtain an international authority on
this branch of chemistry to conduct
two courses. It is hoped at present
that a man from abroad may be se-
More Courses in Classics
Growing interest in the classics has
necessitated the addition of more
courses of study in this field, con-
tinued Dean Kraus in outlining the
summer program. They have especial-
ly attracted ;a great number of grad-
uate students, it was explained.
More courses dealing'with organiza-
tion and administration will be placel
on the curriculum of the School of
Education. Both graduate and under-
graduate work is given in this de1
partuient, and it is expected that these
particular courses will appeal to high
school principals and city school
superintendents. D e m o n s t r a t i o n
courses in the University High school
and athletic coaching instruction will
also be offered.
With the placing of the library
science on a regular academic basis,
there has 'been the necessity of ad-
ditional courses, and these will be
added for the 1927 session.
Work in the biological station will
be broadened, and the erection of an-
other laboratory building has been
provided for in the budget.
Give Week-end Courses
There will be introduced this year,
special week-end courses for the in-
terest of public health workers. Such
a program has been urgently request-
ed by the public health commission of
the state. These classes will include
about 10 lectures each week-end and
will be available to health workers
within a radius of 200 miles, and each
week some special feature of public
health work will be discussed.

faculty members include: Prof. Fred-

According to an estimate by Dean
Kraus, based on the enrollment of past

are expected for the 1927 Summer
