Premier Urges Naval Construction
Although Representatives Will
Attend Conference
(By Associated Press)
PARIS, Feb. 15.-The French gov-
ernment has politely declined Presi-
dent Coolidge's proposal for a new
naval disarmament conference.
The French reply, made public this
evening, says that the government is
convinced that following the Amer-
ican proposal would risk compromis-
ing the success of the work which
the League of Nations has already un-
The reply, which was written by
Foreign Minister Briand, and approv-
ed by the entire cabinet, takes the po-
sition that the circumstances of today
are different from those of 1921, when
the Washington conference was re-
stricted to the limitation effort of a
few powers.
Today, the note said, disarmament
limitation can be considered only as a
Believe All Nations Involved
The note says that in the eyes of
the League of Nations there is a prin-
ciple that all states, small and large,
alike, are on an equality. For France
to enter a limitation agreement of a
selected few powers would not be true
to this principle, the note contends.
To limit efforts to holding down
armaments to a few powers and a few
types of fighting machines would, it
is added, exceed the authority of the
League and at the same time violate
the principle of equality of all na-
"It is to the interest of all the
navies of the world," the note asserts,
"to be associated in the deliberations
on such an important problem."
M. Briand takes several occasions
to hamier home the point that the
League is the place to talk disarma-
ment and put such words into action.
He concludes by expressing the hope
that the United States would continue
to associate itself with the prepara-
tory commission of the League in
making a study of armaments.
TOKIO, Feb. 15.-Premier Kakat-
suki told the House of Peers today
that naval construction should pro-
ceed in Japan notwithstanding the
government's decision to participate in
the naval disarmament conference
proposed by President Coolidge. The
premier urged the peers to pass the
naval construction bill because, he
said, it was impossible to foretell the
result of the conference of world
The cabinet discussed the wording
of its acceptance of President Cool-
idge's invitation to the conference, buti
decided that further discussion wasl
necessary to frame its reply. Thel
memorandum is expected to be for-'
warded either this week or early next
Japan Drafts Reply
The reply, it is generally under-
stood, will contain no reservations,
the cabinet having so insisted.
Although it is known that the navy
staff desired a clause in the accept-
tance stating Japan's attitude con-
cerning the 5-5-3 ration of capital
ships tonnage, Minister of the Navy
Takarabe is said to have voted with
the others of the cabint. He insisted,
however, that the navy's present con-
struction program was necessary for

defensive purposes.
Takarabe, interrogated later in the
upper house of the Diet, asserted that
the present strength of the navy was
at its lowest possible level, and there-
fore there could be no further reduc-
Will Not Ask For New Ratio
The minister regarded the Coolidge
proposal as an extension of the Wash-
ington conference of 1922, but he did1
not believe it possible under changed
conditions to fix a ratio of 5-5-3 or1
even 5-5-4 for auxiliary naval
strength, because some countries
needed more auxiliaries than others
for purposes of defense.
Baron Sakatani suggested to For-
eigni Minister Shidehara in the HouseI
ofiPeers that world disarmament
could be best solved by America join-
ing the League of Nations instead of

minor sports of the Wolverines climb-
ed to an even par with football, bas-
ketball, and track.
It was only in 1923, four years ago,
that wrestling hockey, swimming and
golf became Varsity sports. Since that
time these new sports have been suc-
cessful in Big Ten competition and
thus has given Michigan a better bal-
anced record.
In wrestling the Varsity has not lost
an important contest this season, hav-
ing only been defeated in a prelim-
inary game with Cornell College of
,I~pwa. The victories over Northwes-
tern, Purdue, and Michigan State col-
lege were procured with decisive
scores. The remainder of the season
looks bright, according to the coaches,
and at any rate the wrestling team
will finish this year in a better posi-
tion than ever before.
The swimming team has been unde
feated, having been victorious over
Chicago, Iowa, Indiana, and Wiscon-
sin in dual meets. Michigan State Col-

Continues To Make Career Appoint-

J. B. Wright and II. R. Wilson
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 15.--Presidentl
Coolidge further disclosed today his
increasing dependence upon trained
diplomats in the foreign service when
the White House announced the se-
lection of three new American min-
isters, all of long service in the state
They are: Leland Harrison, now an
Assistant Secretary of State to be
-minister at Stockholm; J. Butler
Wright, also an Assistant Secretary
of State to be minister at Budapest;
Hugh R. Wilson, now chief of the Di-
vision of Foreign Information, State
department, to be minister at Berne.
These selections brought to a total,
of 15 the career diplomatic appoint-,
ments President Coolidge has made,
as compared to 10 political ones. His
proportion of career appointments far
exceeds that of any other president.
The desire of Theodore Brentano of
Chicago, now American minister to
Hungary, to retire from active service
because of age was disclosed with the
selection of Assistant Sceretary
Wright to succeed him.
Mr. Harrison has been intimately
connected during and since the Paris
peace conference with all matters re-
lating to debt funding agreements,
German reparations and similar in-
volved questions. At Stockholm he
will succeed Robert Wood Bliss, who
has been transferredtosBuenos Aires.
SMr. Wright .also has had a wide
diplomatic training and was a member
of the technical group at the Wash-
ington Arms conference, while Mr.
Wilson has served as councillor of
embassy in Peking, Tokio, Berlin and
Paris. He will succeed at Berne Hugh
