Flying Fool's Plane May Be Exhibited
In Washington In Honor Of His
(By Associated Press)
SAN FRANCISCO, May 25.-An of-
fer today by James E. Dole, president
of the Hawaiian Pineapple company,
of $25,000 for the first aviator, and
$10,000 for the second, to complete
a non-stop flight from the Pacific
coast to Hawaii, will attract the aero-
nautical spotlight from the Atlantic
ocean, recently humbled by Capt.
Charles Lindbergh, to the Pacific.
The donor of the prizes is anxious
to have Captain Lindbergh compete
in the Pacific air classic.
To permit the American air argon-
aut sufficient time to enjoy the fruit
of his extraordinary feat and prepare
for another long jump, the prize offer
will become effective August 15 and
for twelve months thereafter. If
Lindbergh does not care to compete
the opening date will be advanced.
HOLLYWOOD, May 25.-Sid Grau-
man, millionaire Hollywood theater
owner, today announced that he had
arranged to post $30,000 as a prize
for a successful non-stop trans-Pa-
cific airplane flight from Los Angeles
to Tokio, Japan.
Lindbergh Offered Chance
Although the money will be posted
tomorrow with the Los Angeles cham-
ber of commerce, Grauman said that
competition for the prize would not
be open for six v4reeks in order that
Captain Lindbergh, New York to
Paris, might have time to enter the
5,000-inile trans-Pacific contest.
Grauman said his first plan was to
offer the prize for a two-stop flight to
Japan, a landing to be made in
Hawaii. He decided to make it a
single flight to Tokio, he declared
after he had been advised by Donald
Douglas, of the Douglas Aircraft cor-
poration, that the 5,000-mile hop was
perfectly feasible
The theater man said his prize offer
had a two-fold purpose-to further
the advance of American aviation, and
to foster a cordial understanding be-
tween the United States and Japan.
WASHINGTON, May 25. - With
government agencies vieing for the
privilege of bringing Capt. Charles A.
Lindbergh back to the United States
plans were begun today for a great
demonstration for him in the national
The city commissioners formally
cabled Lindbergh the congratulations
of Washington and invited him to
come here "in order that the people
may do honor to their fellow country-
man who has so signally exemplified
the courage and spirit of American
manhood in the remarkable feat you
have performed."
Coolidge May Not Be Present
President Coolidge's part in the
celebration here might depend on the
time of Lindbergh's return to Amer-
ica. The President has been expect-
ed to leave for his summer vacation
about the migdle of June but his defi-
nite plans IrlA this regard have not
been announced.
In previous instances, however,
when American aviators have return-
ed to Washington after notable ex-
ploits the President has always been

on hand to greet them when they
landed at Bolling field.
Coincident with the beginning of the
popular movement for a public dem-
onstration in Lindbergh's honor, Sec-
retary Davis, of the war department.
who returned to Washington today
nounced himself in favor of the award
of the Congressional Medal of Honor
and the Distinguishel Flying cross,
and said that the war department
would support legislation necessary
for the bestowing of the honor medal.
Davis Meets Flight Sponsors
Mr. Davis conferred during the day
with Harry F. Knight and H. K. Bix-
by, St. Louis sponsors of the flight,
feel ig that arrangements for the
Washington reception should be guided
by St. Louis friends of the aviator.
The secretary believed, however, that
Washington would be a fitting place
for exhibition of the plane.
The navy having tendered the use
of a destroyer for Lindbergh's re-
turn from France, the shipping board
today invited "the greatest American
flier" to travel home with his plane
on the "greatest American ship," the


Spring preparations for the next
year's edition of the Union Opera will
be concluded this week when the final
chorus try-outs will be held. E. Mor-
timer Shuter, director, will leave .soon
for the East, although the authorsj
and committeemen will continue to
develop the book, lyrics and music, soj
that they will be in readiness for

Roy Hoyer, who has assisted in
developing dances and training chor-
uses for past Mimes productions, has
been unable to come to Ann Arbor this
spring because of his appearance in

by Mr. Sh-uter, however, that Hoyer

have already been submitted to Mr.
Shuter. No title for the production,
which was written by Thomas J. Dou-
gall, '28, and Vincent C. Wall, Jr., '28,
has been selected as yet. The synop-
sis of the first act has been completed,
together with most of the dialogue.
The customary two sets that have
been a feature of past Operas may be
done away with next year, and more
scenes incorporated into the piece.
This will be done to permit a greater
E scope for the action of the plot. The
L tentative settings have been drawn up
by the technical staff. The number
of musical numbers will be cut down
and more work put on the ones used,
in order to 'emphasize the climaxes to
a greater degree. Considerable room
has been left in the development of
the plot for free interpretation and
burlesque, thus affording a type of
action that is being used in the more
current professional productions of
the season.
Dr. Novy Is Selected To Give Annual)
Henry Russel Lecture Today
In Science Auditorium


"Social cooperation alone can solve
social problems. Organization for
common protection is imperative," de-
clared Dr. John B. Andrews in a lec-
ture yesterday in Natural Science au-
ditorium given before the seminar con-
ducted by the School of Religion on
the moral issues of modern life. Dr:
Andrews is the secretary of the Amer-
ican Association for Labor Legislation
and has served on numerous national
committees investigating and attempt.
ing to better social conditions. 1.
"The labor movement is the pro-
gress of the great masses of people
who have fought their way up through
slavery until they have escaped, "Dr.
Andrews said. "It is a continuous
struggle of a vast. majority of peop
to improve living and social condi-
tions. We are still in a great indus-
trial revolution; nothing is finished;
something new develops every week.
Organized social welfare has only been
developed during the last few years.
Well-trained social workers have
grown up during the last twenty
Dr. Andrews told of experiences in
investigating conditions in the match
industry, in coal mines, and in obtain-
ing accident compensation laws for
the workers. "The indu.5trial accident
problem used to be dealt with indi-
vidually, which meant that the workr
had to sue his employer in order to
get some compensation, he said. In
1909 laws were finally drafted where-
by the i-ndustry was to bear the cost
of broken bones and lives the same
as it has to bear the cost of broken
machinery. Now when a worker is in-
jured he receives medical care and a
cash compensation. This has been a
revolution in America. There is a ten-
dency in some quarters to minimize
social legislation, but as long as wo-
men and children are employed in
factory work,.as long as miners are
being killed through lack of preven-
tion against explosions, as long a
there are millions of unemployed
there is still abundant room for pub-
lic reconstruction."
Dr. Andrews spech was the last lec-
ture of the year given under the
School of Religion's curriculum.
Many announcements of the open-
ing of publication of the Michigan I
Weekly will be sent to high school'
principals and others this week. Many
high schools and libraries have al-
ready sent in subscriptions for The
Weekly as a source for clubs and
other organizations as news of the
University campus.
The paper is the latest of campus
publications to make its appearance.
It is a result of the success which sim-
ilar papers have met with in other
schools. All of the news which ap-
pears in it will be taken from copies
of The Daily for the week before
the paper appears. It will be sent to
subscribers every Monday morning.4

Prof. Frederick G. Novy, of the bac-
teriology department, will deliver the
Henry Russel lecture fit 4:15 this aft-
ernoon in Natural Science Auditor-
ium. Dr. Novy is an internationally I
known bacteriologist, being a member
of the National Academy of Sciences I
and seyeral other societies not only
in America but in Europe as well. I
Dr. Novy has been elected to theI
Legion of Honor. He received his
Bachelor of Science degree here ini
1886, began teaching the next year and+
is now the director of the Hygienic+
laboratory. He has studied under;
Koch, the well known German scien-1
tist, and also at the Pasteur institute
in Paris. Dr. Novy has written sev-
eral books on scientific subjects.
The lecture is supported by a fund
established in 1920 from a sum of
money left to the University by HenryI
Russel, '73. In his will, Russel gave.
$10,000, the income from which was
to be used as an "additional compen-+
sation to members of the teaching
staff." It was decided to dlivide this
gift into two parts; one half to be
used for the Henry Russel lecture and
the other for the Henry Russel award.
The lecture is given annually by a
professor of the University, chosen
by the executive board of the Re-
search club. The award is giyen to
some faculty member below the pro-
fessional rank who is selected by a
standing committee of the University

Cheering Section Cominitee Appointed
For Next Fall With Gilbert
- As Chairman
Installation of new members, elec-
tion of officers, and the administering
of the oath of office to the 'new pres-
ident, Courtland C. Smith, '28, were
the features of the meeting of the
Student Council held last night at the
Union. The meeting was the first since
the annual al-campus spring elec-
tions, at which the new president and
members were elected.
Ellis Merry, '28, was elected to fill
the vacancy caused by the ineligibilty
of Leo Hoffman, '28L, who was a suc-
cessful candidate for senior council-
man at the elections. Merry was chos-
en by vote of the Council, and will
take office at the next meeting.
The session was opened by Thom-
as Cavanaugh, '27L, retiring pres-
ident, who called for reports of the
committees still outstanding. Cava-
naugh eulogized briefly the work of
the Council this year, commending
them for their cooperation and
achievements. At the close of his short I
talk he turned the chair over to Smith,
the new president, who immediately
took charge of the meeting.
IThe new Council then took its posts
and election of officers of the body
for the ensueing year was the first
business transacted. The first election
held was that for vice president, to
which office John Snodgrass, '28E,
was chosen. Snodgrass was the defeat-
ed candidate for president at the all
campus spring elections and has been
a member of the Council during the
past year.
John E. Starrett, '28E, was elected
without opposition to the position of
treasurer, and John Gilmartin, '29E,
newly elected junior councilman, was
choasen secrtar. This, is the only of-
fice of the Council which is open to
junior representatives.
Following the election of the off-
cers, the 'president announced several
of the commite appointments, in
order that those which must start
work immediately can do so, and Snod-
grass was re-appointed to his posi-
tion as chairman of the Sunday con-
vocations committee. He announced
that three of the four speakers for
next fall have already been secured.
Ernest McCoy, '29, was appointed by
Smith to assist Snodgrass in the
A new committee to start work im-
mediately on the cheering section for
next fall was then appointed by the
president, with Charles Gilbert, '28, as
chairman. Gilmartin was appinted
to assist Gilbert with the work. Re-
ports of the outgoing councilmen indi-
cated that plans for the cheering sec-
tion were already under way, and that
the committee would have to decide
i whether capes or pieces of cardboard
will be used for the block M, and
'whether the section shall - be filled
R separately for each game or whether
it should be a permanent block of
1200 seats as last year. Sentiment
i among the councilmen seemed to fa-
vor the idea of the permanent block
for all of the four big games rather
than allowing different students to
,participate at each game.
The final appointment made by the
president was that of Fred Asbeck, '29
to devise plans whereby the Student
Council can participate in the propos-

ed freshman week next fall.
At the close of the meeting Smith
outlined in brief the policy for the1
Council next year, and explained some
of the practices and customs tothe'
new members, expressing the hope
that the year will be sucessful in
every way.

NEW ORLEANS, May 25.-Fleets of
boats were being assembled in the
area inundated by the' break in the
Atchafalaya river levee at , McCrae,
Pointe Coupee parish tonight, to aid
those who have refused to leave in
the face of warnings of their danger.
Hundreds of persons in the parish
clung to their homes as the flood wa-
ters moved upon them. 150 square
miles of land had been inundated
since the break early Tuesday. More
rapidly than had been expected, the
torrents had poured over swamp lands
and extended in a gradually expand-,
ing lake for more than 20 miles south
.of the break.
All dry land between the Atchafala-
ya and the Mississippi river levees,
ten miles to the east, had disappear-
ed today. The fear that many of the
flood victims might be cut off caused
relief agencies to mobilize the fleets.
A railroad was commandeered by

Discusses Thought Trend Of 1odernI
Colloid Chemistry In Talk
Given Yesterdhay
Dr. H. R. Kruyt, professor of phys-
ical chemistry at the University of
Utrecht, gave the last of a series of
three lectures yesterday at 4:15c
o'clock in the Chemistry amphithe-e
atre. The topic of the three lectures
was "Tlie Trend of Thought in Modernr
Colloid Chemistry." In his last lecture
he discussed the subject of Colloids"
and Hydration".
Dr. Kruyt stated that since Lyophy-
lic colloids do not precipitate evens
when the electric charge is omitted,
there must be another factor which
accounts for their stability, and thist
factor seems to be hydration, as the{
addition of dehydrating agents brings
about the normal behavior of suspen-
soids. As salts are hydrated also, we.
can understand their action whent
salting out proteins.I
The properties of protein solutionst
can be understood from these points
of view. The fact that they move in
the electric field can be accounted fors
,as well from the standpoint of ionic1
solutions as from that of colloidal
systems, but the influence of neutralt
electrolytes can only be understoodc
when we assume that we are dealing
with phenomena at phase boundaries.'
Therefore this theory is prevailable.1
Dr. Kruyt went on discussing the}
influence of hydrogen ion concentra-}
tions and the gelatine diagram ofT
Jaques Loeb. In closing the lecture het
stated that the character of these hy-
dration phenomena, so closely related
to lyotropic action, needs careful study
He emphasized that colloid science is1
closely related to physics, chemistry.
and physical chemistry, but that for
the special character of the problems
which are studied in this branch of
science it has to look for its ownt
theory and its own methods..
In the memory of Prof. Filbert Roth,
former head of the forestry depart-
ment, the Forestry club yesterday for-
mally presented a memorial to the
University. A granite boulder with a
bonze tablet has been placed in Sag-
inaw Woods, the forestry experimen-
tal farm, near the cabin. The stone
! is surrounded by spruce trees - ar-
ranged in the form of an arch.
Professor Roth was the founder and
a professor-emeritus of the forestry
department. He died on December 5,
1925, at the age of 6 . He was the
first professor of forestry at the Uni-
versity, first coining here in 1903 and

man who has not met defeat. O'Connell
of Ilinois, although defeated by Shay

most likely to reach the finals where,
theoretically, he should meet Barton.
Illinois should also furnish the keen-

Canadian Government Follows Engish,
By Terminating Trade Agreement
With Russia
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, May 25.--Rumors of an
exciting character are circulating in
London as to the discoveries made
in the police raid on Acos, Ltd., the
Russian trade organization.
It is reported insistently that the
names of several members of Parlia-
ments are on the lists of persons to
whom money has been paid by the
Soviet trade delegation, and the de-
bate in the House of Commons to-
morrow on the question of breaking
off all relations with Soviet Russia
is awaited with breathless interest by
an expectant public. The fervent
hope is expressed that the government
will release more information about
the discovery.
The police are believed to have
found Soviet codes which make it
possible to decode messages exchang-
ed between Moscow and the Soviet
officials in London over a long per-
iod, including the time of the general
strike. Everywhere the possible dis-
closures are the chief subject of dis-
cussion. There is much speculation,
too, as to whether France, Italy and
other countries having diplomatic rel-
ations with Russia will be influenced
by Great Britain's action and the man
in the street apparently is convinc-
ed that England, France and Italy
have reached an understanding re-
garding their attitude toward Moscow.
Papers Oppose Action
The Socialist and the Daily Herald
(the Labor papers) are charging that
the documents on which the govern-
ment bases it action are forgeries and
Insists that it is a general world plan
to renew the economic barrier around
Soviet -Russia.
Emphatic denials of Premier Bald-
win of espionage and other charges
as announced yesterday in the House
of Commons, were made today by M.
Rosengolz, the Soviet charge d'affarles
in London in a statement issued
through Peff, the official Soviet news
agency. M. Rosengolz takes the
stand that the British prime minister
has be'en misled not only concerning
espionage, but with regard to other
assertions he made when announcing
the government's decision to break
off diplomatic relations as well as
denounce the trade agreement of six
years standing.
"We cannot but express our amaze-
ment and deep regref," says M. Rosen-
golz, "that such an'important decision
has been reached by the British gov-
ernment on such flimsy pretexts and
that such doubtful arguments have
been used to justify its actions."
Canada Also rakes Action
OTTAWA, May 25.-The Canadian
government has decided to terminate
immediately the trade agreement with
Russia. The announcement of this
decision was made after a lengthy'
meeting of the cabinet this afternoon.
Premier McKenzie-King declared
that the government action had been
determined upon after a full discus-
sion of the situation created by the
decision of the British government to
sever relations with Soviet Russia.
Evidence in the hands of the Can-
adian government made it clear, the
premier said, that satisfaction of the

trade agreement between' Canada and
Russia had been violated by the Rus-
sian government.
The prime minister pointed out
that the agreement was subject to ter-
mination unless certain conditions
were fulfilled, but he stated emphati-
cally that its termination would not
mean discontinuance of trade be-
tween Canada and Russia. It meant
merely that certain quasi-diplomatic
privileges enjoyed by the Russian
trade commission would be ended,
but every effort would be made to
further trade between the two coun-
tries in the same manner as Canadian
trade relations with other countries
are conducted.

nual Senior Sing, held last night on
thet steps of the Library, at which
seniors of all schools and colleges of
