Agreement On Exact Language To Bt
Used In Stating Question Seen
As One Difficulty
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 19.-Although
Secretary Kellogg has announced that
he has been giving consideration to
the application of the principle of
arbitration to the Mexican contro-
versy, it was made clear today at the
State department that no move in
that direction had been initiated by
the Washington government.
And there was no indication that
any official offer of arbitration had
been received from President Calles,
of Mexico, who, in the opinion of
some officials at least, would be ex-
pected to express a willingness to
approach the oil and land question
from that angle if it is to be under-
At the State department, Secretary
Kellogg's attitude towards arbitration,
which was proposed in a resolution
introduced yesterday by Senator Rob-
inson, Democratic leader, was said to
be one of complete willingness to have
the advice of the Senate on the sub-
ject, but without committment as to
whether he would accept an offer of
arbitration if made by the Mexican
State department 'pinoin as to what
significance should be attached to
Secretary Kellogg's statement on the
Robinson resolution probably arises
from the 'numerous difficulties ap-
proaching in the way of a mutual
agreement between the two govern-
ments on the exact language which
should be employed in submitting the
question to an arbitrator. With re-
gard to Nicaragua, it was said to be
Secretary Kellogg's opinion that with
re-establishment of peace in that
country the American forces would be
withdrawn. The United States, he
said, has been trying for years to help
Nicaragua compose her internal af-
fairs and would be glad to see an
era of tranquility there.

and Nicaraguan situations in Con-
gress today was made in the House by

Methods Of Selections For senior Ball,
Sophomore Prom and Frosh Frolic
Will Be Altered
As the result of a dispute as to
which class should have the chair-
manship of the Frosh Frolic this
year, the Student council, at its neet-
ing last night, adopted a plan for the
selection of the social committee of
each class which will have direct sup-
ervision over the four major social
functions of the year. Heretofore,
the committees in charge of the Senior
Ball, the Sophomore Prom, and the
Frosh Frolic have been chosen in ua
haphazard manner, the J-Hop com-
mittee having the only standard or-
The new plan provides for a com-
plete rearrangement of the senior,
sophomore and freshman social com-

for their selection each year. The two

Saunde of Brown University in his
annual report to the Brown corpora-

Asserting that, "America will never
condemn any kind of work or play
because it is of absorbing interest,"
President Saunde maintained that,
"When all studies shall make appeal

Saunde explained, through the organi-
zation of a new athletic counsel of
the president or his representative,
four members of the corporation, four
members of the faculty, and two
alumni. This council will have charge
of fixing schedules, engagement of
coaches, and expenditures for equip-
ment and maintenance.
Pointing to the fact that four of
Brown's coaches are already members
of the faculty, he expressed the hope
that the time would not be far distant
when no man would be deemed coin-
petent to give instruction in outdoor
sport unless "he is associated in the
faculty with the principles of litera-
ture, science, and philisophy."
