Concert pr;rant
Beniamino Gigli, Italian tenor of
the Metropolitan Opera company will
formally open the local mu'sical sea-
son with a program of songs and arias
tonight in Hill auditorium. The con-
cert will constitute the first number
of the regular concert series, and will
be presented under the auspices of
the University Choral Union.
On this occasion Gigli wll be as-
sisted by Edythe Browning, a well-
known dramatic soprano, and an
American artist. Vito Carnevali will
act as accompanist for both.

Gigli is an Ialian who received his
early training in boys' choirs, after-
wards completing the education at
Rome. He early made the rounds of
the opera houses in Milan, Genoa, and
other European cities. - His American
debut was at the Metropolitan Opera
house, where he has spent his seasons
ever since, with the exception of short
trips to Europe and S'outh America.
Gighi is one of the few leading tenors
who have contended for the place held
by the late Enrico Caruso.
In Protrge of Johnon$
Miss Browning was discovered by'
the impresario R. E. Johnston, while
she was a soloist in a New York
church. It is thought by officials of
the University School of Music that
her appearance will add color to the
program as now arranged.
The program tonight will inaugur-
ate the 49th year of the Choral Union
regular.,concert series. The extra se-
ries, which will be opened October 28
with the appearance of Rosa Raisa
and Giacomo Rimini, will be in its
ninth year.
There are a few single tickets for.
the Gigli concert still available, ac-
cording to Charles A Sink, prIgsdent
of the Choral Union. They may be
obtained at the School of Music offices
on Maynard street or if still remain-
ing, at the box office in Hill auditor-
ium. They are priced at $1.50, $2.00,

Putnam Has Divorce
Problems Solution
(By Associ;tcd Press)
NEW YORK, Oct. 6.--A new solu-
tion for the world's divorce problem
was brought back to civilization to-
day by George Palmer Putnam, pub-
lisher and exploier, home from four
months in the Artic wastes of Batlin-
Th1e solution, he said, lies in emula-
tion of the primitive Eskimo, who has
made divorce non-existent for his race
through the development of a perfectl
economic partneship in which wo-
mans place is in the igloo-chew-
ing her husband's sealskin boots into!
proper softness and flexibility for his
next hunting trip.
With starvation always just around
the corner, Mr. Putnam says, the Es-
kimo still remains one of the happiest
races of the earth. His wants are
fow, his taste simple and in Baitulan

i oled to his wife and children.

Mlore TIhan 100 Delegates are Present
at Smoker of Sixth Annual
Highway Convention
More than 100 delegates from var-
ious sections of the Middle West
opened the conference on highway[
transport and the sixth annual meet-
ing of the Michigan- Motorbus Asso-
ciation with a smoker held last night
in the convention hall of the Union.
Horatio S. Earle, first state high-
way commissioner of Michigan and
former member of the Michigan state
legislature, presided at the initial as-
sembly. Professor John S. Worley of
the transportation engineering depart-
ment of the University delivered an
illustrated lecture on the history of
automotive vehicles. Prof. Worley,
aided by slides, compared the present
day automobiles to the antiquated
vehicle which was operated as early
as 1516. Prof. Worley stated that as
fearl y as the 16th century worm gear-
driven machines were in use in
Illustrations Are Used.
He illustrated these with reproduc-
tions from wood blocks of that period.
A near conception of the modern war
tank was in vogue in 1588, he stated
further. The first engine driven car
was adopted in 1769, and steam furn-
ished the power for this crude but
practical means of transportation. All
of the slides which were screened dur-
ing the address were the property of
the transportation library of the en-
gineering department of the Univer-
sity. -Prof. Worley stressed the adap-
tation of art into the field of engineer-
ing as early as the .16th century.
Arthur H. Blanchard, former pro-
fessor of highway engineering and now
highway transport consultant in
Toledo, 0., presented the principal ad-
dress of the evening's session. Mr.
Blanchard emphasized the lack of
development of all means of transpor-
tation, particularly of busses, in the
United States, comparing the lack of
develoipment here to the splendid
systems of metropolitan London. Mr.
Blanchard also compared the various
methods of traffic control employed
locally and abroad, painting out the
defects of the modern American sys-
tem and the efficiency in vogue in
London Parking Barred.
In discussing the parking problem
iii London Mr. Blanchard asserted
that "virtually no parking was allowed
anywhere, thus assuring ample ease
for the- loading and unloading of bus
passengers in congested districts."

present as the main speaker of last
night's meeting. Instead, Dr. Hender-
son will speak at the luncheon held in

WASHINGTON, Oct. 6.-A little dis-
turbed by the Treasury's action of yes-
terday in raising certain duties on
French imports to correspond with
that country's new rate on American
products, the State department went
forward today with preparation of its
note to France seeking a basis for
negotiation of a most-favored-nation
commercial treaty.
Te deg t g accepted and even,
afirined the Treasury's explanation
that its action was routine demanded
by law, but it was not certain whether
the fact of the increased rates with1
the appearance of retaliation would'
embarrass the diplomatic negotiation."
Those drafting the .note to Paris con-
ridered also whether it should make
mention of the newest and unexpected
The assumption was that should
France' inquire into the newly raised
tariff, the Treasury's explanation
would be repeated with the added as-
surance that its action has no bearing
on the general( Paris discussion.
France's new rates became effective
Sept. 6, but the Treasury explained
today that it had not delayed com-
pliance with the tariff law which re-
quires similar changes in American
duties because of the pending diplo-
matic negotiations. The State depart-+
ment's chief reaction to the affair was
surprise that it had no advance notice
that the Treasury was to take the
course it did.
Some attcntion was also given at
the Department to a statement by As-i
sistant Secretary Lowman of the'
Treasury that American tariff policy
was one of reciprocity and that Amer-
ican duties on specific articles went
up- or down as foreign ddties went up
or down. It was said emphatically
that the American policy was one of1
equal treatment for all countries andt
that only the President or the secre-
tary of state could announce foreign7
Mr. Lowman's statement apparently+
referred, however, only to the specific'
tariff schedules under which the in-'
creases in duties on French goodsI
were made, the law requiring raising'
or lowering of duties on certaii art-j
icles when similar action is taken byI
other countries. It was in that con-
nection that yesterday's Treasury or-]
der also provided for a lowering of
duties on certain German commojities.1

Wayne Schroder, Treasurer-Eleet, Is
Also Ineligible To Hold
Literary Office
Action of the Student council in de-
claring Kenneth Haven, '29B.Ad, in-
eligible for the office of president of
the senior literary class was upheld
by the Senate Committee on Student
Affairs at a special meeting held last
The committee issued the following
statement after the matter of Haven's
eligibility had been referred to the
Senate Committee on Student Affairs
by President Clarence Cook Little, to
whom Haven had appealed.
No Nev Action Justifiable
"In the opinion of the Senate Com-
mittee on Student Affairs there is not
sufficient justification for a recon-
sideration of the action of the Student
council in declaring Mr. Kenneth Ha-
ven ineligible for election as president
of the senior class of the College of
Literature, Science, and the Arts. At
the same time it is the opinion of the
committee that the Student council
was negligent in not stating the basis
of eligibility of candidates for such
elective offices prior to the election."
It was further declared yesterday
by officers of the Student council that
Wayne Schroder, '29B.Ad., was also
ineligible to hold office as treasurer
of the senior literary class, after it
was learned that he is also registered

dent council, whose officers stated
that this had been a matter of custom
in the past elections.
Both Sides Pmrsent
The action of the Senate Committee
on Student Affairs followed a meeting
at which -officers of the Student coun-
cil and Haven expressed opinions and
presented facts bearing on the' ques-
tion of his eligibility.
At its weekly meeting Wednesday
night in the Union, the council de-
clared Haven ineligible with the fol-
lowing motion: "Resolved, thatKen-
neth Haven is ineligible to holdt office
