Public Manifestation Against
"Attitude Of Violence"
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 11.-Another
attack upon President Coolidge's Nica-
raguan policy was made in the House
today by Representative Huddleston,
Democrat, Alabama, who termed it a
"plain affront to Mexico."
Representative Lozier, Democrat,,
Missouri, also delivered a verbal
broadcast, but apart from these, and,
an incidental thrust by Senator Borah,
Republican, Idaho, on the floor of the
Senate, little was heard from the ad-
ministration opposition. .
On the other hand, Representative
Wood, Republican, Indiana; rose to
the defense of the President's message1
yesterday as an "admonition to the
two countries,' but not the "big
While silence on the subject was
maintained in quarters where con-1
ment was looked for, it was said
at the White House that President
Coolidge had nothing to add to what
hie had saidl in yesterday's message to1
Congress further than to stress the
determination to afford protection to
American life and property in any
part of the world; and that the gov-
ernment would do everything in its
power to that end.
With interest centered on the ex-
pected appearance tomorrow of Sec-
retary Kellogg, before the Senate for-
eign relations committee, to discuss
the Nicaraguan situation, most sena-
tors continued to withold comment.,
Senator Borah's remarks wei'e promt-
ed by a request by Senator Bingham'
Republican, Connecticut, that he be
permitted to straighten out in the
Congressional Record some confusion
over his reference to President Diaz,
of Nicaragua in a speech yesterday.
Representative Huddleston, in at-
tacking the President's policy, re-
iterated that America is "deliberately i
and consciously drifting into war with
Mexico." He asserted that President
Coolidge had brought Mexico into his 1
message for lipother purpose than "tog
put her in a ad light."

SANTIAGO, Chile, Jan. 11.-A com-
mittee met today under the auspices
of the Student's club to plan a public
manifestation against the "attitude ofx
violence adopted by the United States
in Nicarague." Labor unions, co-
operating with the movement, appoint-
ed delegates to the committee and the
Student's club has sent a message to
the convention of professors urging,
them to join the plan.
Committee Named
To Study Deferred
Rushing Problems{
Appointment of a committee for the
consideration of the problems of de-
(erred rushing on the Michigan cam-
pus was made by John R. Boland, Jr.,
'27, president of the Interfraternity,
council at a meeting of that body
yesterday afternoon at the Union.
The committee consists of Frederick
S. Glover, Jr., '27, chairman; W. Cal-
vin Patterson, '27, Nathan P. Fein-
singer, grad., Henry T. Lathrop, '27,
and Henry Maentz, '27. Meetings of
this committee and a record of its
work will be delivered to the coun-
cil in the near future.
Other considerations of the meeting
were a review of some of the work
done at the convention of the National
Interfraternity council held recently

in New York, and the statement of a
plan for the invitation of faculty mem-
bers to visit the various houses andt
become acqquainted with the men in
the fraternities and with the ideals
that actuate them.

Stronger Than Before Die To F
Prophesying the theatrical death of!
large traveling combinations, Theo- s
dore Roberts, Paramount moving pic-
ture star now appearing at the Majes-
tic theater, in an interview with a
representative of The Daily last night,t
declared that, although it may take az
generation or so, the spoken dramaa
will come back to popularity stronger
than ever before because of thet
Recalling the siutation 20 years 1
ago, Mr. Roberts pointed out that ap-t
proximately only 20 per cent of the f
people ever attended the legitimatef
stage productions in those days,'
while a safe estimate of numbers ofk
the present day movie-goers would be
between 50 and 60 percent of the
population. This difference, he saidt
can be laid to diverse reasons, most I
prominent of which is the proximityl
of neighborhood movie houses to thet
homes of the people; the comparative
cheapnefs, especially in the !earlyl
days when a man could take his wholeI
family to the pictures for 50 cents;t
the fact that, contrary to the stage,
the best productions may be seen evenf
in the most remote localities; anda

ing that he believed the future of the
spoken stage to be in production§ with
individual stars supported by local
stock companies.
When questioned as to the possibili-
ties for new stars to break into the
movies,. Mr. Roberts answered that it
is all a matter of chance. There is a
decided demand for new material due
to the constantly changing personnel
of the large film producing companies,
he continued, and the advise he gives
to all movie aspirants is "to be readyI
for your chance when it conies." He,
further advised that tryouts should'
not go to'Hollywood expecting to be'
supported by their movie earnings.
"The tendency in the movie industry
is toward comedy," he stated, "and
this tendency, a decided one,, is due
to the fact" that audiences want to
laugh. Movies aren't constructed with
the idea of educating the public be-
cause the industry is conducted on
purely a mercenary basis," he added
with a smile. "The public doesn't
want to be educated anyway."
Mr. Roberts was very warm in his
feeling about college town audiences,
and said.that they are very enthusi-

I Norther Threatens
To Isolate Capital

Cites Dawes Plan, League Of Nations,
Briand-Stresemann Meeting, And
Locarno, As Proofs
Speaking on "The New Europe,"
Dr Ernst Jackh, founder and pres-
ident of the. Institute of Political Sci-
ences, Berlin, and German delegate
to Versailles, Locarno, Genoa, and
Geneva, told a large audiece yester-
day afternoon in Natural Science
auditorium that Europe's leading
statesmen are paving a way for per-
manent peace by their frequent meet-
ings to smooth over difficulties before
they grow into serious problems. He
stated that if the atmosphere of
friendliness and the endeavor for mu-
tual welfare now existing in Europe
had been present in 1914 therewould
have been no World war.
Dr. Jackh asked the question, "Is
there a new Europe?" and ansered
it by a brief survey of the changing
relationships between nations during
the past 15 years. "Old Europe, that
is the Europe before the war, was di-
vided into two camps, the Triple En-
tente and the Triple Alliance, each
pitted against the other in a diplo-
matic struggle which culminatd in
the Great war. The nations emerging
from this conflict immediately pre-
pared to enlarge their armies and ex-
tend their boundaries, and sunk temp-
orarily into a more chaotic state than
iNew Europe Born
The speaker answered his question
in the affirmative by saying, "After
five years following the World war,
the real new Europe began to grow."
There are four proofs, he said, of this
statement-the Dawes scheme, the
Locarno conference, the League of
Nations, and the recent meeting be-
tween Briand and Stresemann.
Dr. Jackh charaterized the Dawes
scheme as the basis of new Europe,
''a traffic sign directing economics to
keep to the right.' "Its greatest wi-
dom lies in its flexibility which en-
hances its value. The only definite
thing about the Dawes plan is that it
is indefinite."
Turning more specifically to his
I own country, the German lcturer
claimed that the problems of Germany
are at the center of European prob-
lems. le reminded the audience of
I Germany's central location. "There
is no other nation with as open boun
daries as Germany, none. other with
as many neighbors-and each of Ger-
many's neighbors has an army and
armaments superior to hers; and no
other nation has so dispersed a pop-
ulation." Thus, explained the lec-
turer, that nation is made by fate and
not by choice the center and chief
reason for European interdependence.
1.This interdependence which is find-
ing expression in art, sences, and in
other fields as well as in the political
is a new movement which can become
Seither an order or disorder and which-
1 may either kill or cure, he continued.
The result will be either alliances
I and armaments, which lead toward
conflict, or agreement and arbitration,
which, said Dr. Jackh, are steps to-
ward future peace and prosperity.
"All we are concerned with in tile
League of Nations is the atmosphere
and the machinery," declared the
speaker. The underlying purpose of the
league has been to avoid war and this
it is accomplishing by the atmosphere
t of friendliness, and of co-operation
between nations which are steadily
growing. He went on to explain that
this new atmosphere amd understand-
u ing is being developed primarily by
the frequent meetings of representa-
tives from the various governments.
"Perfect Efficiency"
The machinery of the league, 'he
stated, has not, of course, reached
perfection, but is improving steadily,
I "To gain time was the purpose of the

old system; to lose time, the purpose
. of the present system. Wasting time
. in the intervention of war," the speak-
- er added, "is 100 per cent efficiency."
In enumerating the leading prob-
lems of Europe today, Dr. Jackh cited
- in particular the Balkan question, the
ai Italian, and the Russian. "The prob-
lem presented by Soviet Russia," he
e concluded, "is the greatest confront-
f ing Europe today."
- The lecturer considers Mussolini
- too sound a man to cause the other
e nations, organized as they now are,
e any serious trouble.
