concluded the two-day lecture series
being given in conjunction with Scott
Nearing, yesterday afternoon at Natur-

At the start of his talk, Mr. Thomas
gave an introduction to the subject
of democracy which he thought was
necessary for a clear conception of
his ensuing theories. He separated
the doubters of democracy Into two
types. One he termed "Babbitry
Menckenists" who, in an attempt to
elevate themselves above the bour-
geoise, fall into the narrowness of
imitation, and find fault because of
their extreme cynicism. The other

general aspect of football, according'
to Fielding H. Yost, director of inter-

add many more thrills, he said.
Coach Yost asserts that he knows
of no one who is opposed to the shift-

WASHINGTON, March 8.-The con-

minimum tonnage ratios in cruisers,
destroyers, and submarines is con-
fidently expected by the Washington
Definite proposal for a three power
attempt to find a suitable formula
have been made by the United States
and London and Tokio. While they'
are informal and possibly no more1
than verbal in character as yet, re-
plies now awaited will result in a
formal invitation if the plan is ac-
cepted as is clearly foreshadowed in!
preliminary diplomatic conversations.
Stress Linitation iroject
The fact that only a limitation pro-
ject, not a proposal for a reduction
in tonnage, is under consideration, is
believed to have been stressed in the
informal exchanges here and in Lon-
don and Tokio which followed rejec-
tion by France and Italy of the orig-
inal American plan for a five-power
conference at Geneva.
France and Italy probably will be
invited to send observers to the three-
power conference. Some officials be-
lieve it possible that ultimately the
Paris and Rome governments will
find it expedient to participate despite
their previous refusal. This feeling
is based in part on the evident mis-
conception of the original American
proposal indicated in the French re-
fusal and also on the feeling that
when the Continental powers fully
understand what President Coolidge
has in mind they cannot fail to take
advantage of the opportunity offered
to escape competitive naval building.
At any rate, it is made clear that the
Washington government expects to
leave the door open for their partici-
The Washington government prob-
ably will not attempt to present any
limiitation for consultation in its invi-

ers to curb their own building pro-
!grams in view of French and Italian
reluctance to join in five-power nego-
tiations almost entirely will be left to
the Geneva meeting itself.
Would Remove Impediment
If Great Britain accepts, as London
advices indicate, the greatest stum-
bling block in the road of the three-
power discussions will be removed.
Heretofore, Great Britain has fre-
quently indicated that she could ac-
cept no limitation of anti-submarine
craft if her continental neighbors re-
fused to limit submarine construc-
Japan's only question in accepting

United States was disposed to follow
that course but the Washington gov-
ernment has clearly indicated its
recognition that even the extension
of maximum tonnage limitations by
classes of ships to types not provided
for in the Washington treaty must be
a very flexible agreement.
Officials here believe that the pro-
posed three-power conference would
evolve a plan to set tonnage limita-
tions for cruisers, destroyers, and
submarines at a maximum figure, but
with a specific requirement for ex-
amination of these figures at frequent
intervals with a view of revision up-
ward if naval building outside the
treaty powers makes that expedient.

Lauding the 1927 Michigan cham-

greatest offensive and defensive com-
bination that he has ever seen or
coached, Coach E. J. Mather gave the
opening address at the student
smoker last night in the assembly hall
of the Union. It is estimated that
more than 500 students attended the
meeting, which was opened by the
band playing "The Victors."'
"The Michigan team is the great.

highest powered team in the West-,

He ended his remarks by praising
Captain Chambers as being a greatl
team player whose work in the group

"We should never say a word or
do an act that would reflect on the

followed Mather. He warned the
gathering of the bad reflection cast
upon Michigan and its students by
the demonstration Monday night. He
concluded his remarks by a plea to
'the good will and spirit of the stu-
dents to refrain from such outbursts
in the future.
The meeting was brought to a close
by a short talk by Lester Johnson,,
27L, president of the Union, who also
asked the gathering not to repeat the
actions of Monday night.

Under the direction of Dr. W. D.

sociated with the organization fromI
the time of its establishment, the Uni-

state and their university.
Its purpose, as expressed by Dr.
Henderson, is, "To promote the cause
of education and advancement of
culture throughout the state; to serve
local communities insofar as the tech-

About seven years ago, Dr. Hender-
son was asked by the Regents to give
his full time to the division.
The work of the Extension division
is carried on through a series of 13
bureaus. Two of the most important{
take care of the University Extension
lectures and the credit courses. Last
