The party sailed aboard the Mor-
rissey, famous ship of the Arctic, and
captained by Robert Bartlett, of Peary
fame. Aboard it was a party of scien-
tists who were to collect specimens of
the flora and fauna of the region ex-
plored. Numerous museums and insti-
tutes are interested in the expedition.
Stop for final supplies for the Mor-
rissey was made at Brigus, N. F. The
entire town turned out to greet the
ship. The ship sailed north from there
and little word has been received from
them since. They have been in radio
communication with the outside world,1
but reports seeping through have been
scanty in news value.
As the party progressed farther
north the ice floes grew thicker and
they were bothered by the ever preva-
lent Arctic fog. Captain Bartlett had
to use the "questing lead" to pick his
way through the shallow waters. A
close watch was constantly needed to
ward off dangerous icebergs.
Members of the party have radioed
tales of hunts for polar bears and
killings at short range with revolvers.
Two..Plankton nets were lowered for
specimens whenever the ice permitted
in order to collect specimens of the
sea life. The shallower bottoms were
dredged with clam-shaped instru-
ments attached to lead weights.
Inside of Fox Basin a whaleboat was
sent from the Morrissey to explore the
coast line. Professor Gould hopes by a
study of the fossils of that region to
correlate the history of North America
with that of Europe. While the land
expedition was *out, the Morrissey
sailed up the opposite coast of Fox
Basin to a rendezvous with the whale-
boat. It was while making this trip
First Convention Skirmish Conies
When Aviation Resolution Is De-.
feted; Government Entertains.
I (By Associated Press)
PARIS, Sept. 21.-The American
Legion today had it first convention
fight and General "Billy" Mitchell,
who not long ago stirred up much
commotion in the American aviation
service, lost his stand for immediate
creation of a separate air department
in the Cabinet. The convention, how-
ever, adopted a resolution favoring
consolidation of all branches of na-
tional defense into one Cabinet de-
It was a day of final cleaning up of
routine, and tonight was given over
to electioneering in behalf of candi-
dates for national officers of the
Legion and tlre auxiliary.
There were more patriotic cere-
monies today, more big excursions to
battle fields ald provinces and the
best air circus the French army fliers
could present to startle, amaze and
amuse their brothers in arms.
The solemn touch was given the
day's proceedings when the great Os-
suary at Verdun was dedicated to the
memory of the French who died there.
The men and women were feted at
social affairs and there will be a few
tomorrow. The last big affair and
perhaps 'the most magnificent will be
the French government ball tomorrow
The Legion convention open meet-
ing which furnishes plenty of color
was not lacking in that element to-
day when a short but snappy air fight
occurred. The skirmish came over

tion of an aviation department in the

the same as last year. The second pro-
gram will be broadcast Oct. 14.
The first program will be inter-
spersed with musical selections,
mostly University numbers, by the
Uiversity band, under the direction
of Nicholas Falcone. Included in their
part of to program will be "Varsity,"
"Victors" and "Yellow and Blue."
Due to the demand for seats in the
improved and enlarged cheering sec-
tion which has been arranged in the
new stadium by the studet council
and 'which will function at all of the
'home games, the office for the re-
ceiving of applications for seats in,
the section will be open again this
afternoon from 2 to 5 o'clock in the
main lobby of the Union.
The section is rapidly being filled,
according to the statement of the of-
ficials in charge, but there are a few
choice blocks left. Applicants who
have not yet made arrangements to
sit in this section will be able to do so
this afternoon.
Under the new plan all of the seats
in the section are located between the
33-yard lines. Students who elect to
sit in these seats will be allowed to
transfer their seats for others so that
they may sit with their family or with
friends at one or two of the home
games. This arrangement is made
possible by a cooperative plan of ex-
I change between the student council
and the athletic association.
There will be no practice or nc
organized sessions of cheering. The
uniforms will be the same as last year
and will be distributed at the time that
the applicants present themselves at
the Union.

Arms Connittee Unanimously Ap.
Proves Graduated System of Se.
curity A Propoed By France
(1k, Associated P ress).,
GENEVA, Sept. 21.-The weaving of
the peace fabric at Geneva advanced
swiftly today, bringing out in sharp
relief the colors of arbitration and se-
curity as vitally essential to the com-
pleted tapestry, of which disarmament
constitutes the third necessary ele-
Unanimous approval was given by
the disarament committee, the most
important organ of the League of Na-
tions assembly, to a project, introduc-
ed in its original form by the French
delegation, whereby the League of
Nations preparatory disarmament
commission, while arranging for a
general conference on limitation and
reduction of armaments, will center
its activities simultaneously on ex-
tension of arbitration agreements and 4
a graduated system of security among
the nations.
Resolution Adopted
A comprehesive resolution, which
is considered certain to be approved
by the assembly, was adopted today
requesting the Council of the League
to urge the preparatory commission,
on which the United States is rep-
resented, to hasten completion of its
technical work, thus enabling the
Council to convene a conference for
the limitation and reduction of arma-
ments at-the earliest possible date.
While the United States is expected
actively to continue its co-operation
with the disarmament commission, the
Washington government is not expect-
ed to assume membership on another
special commission which the resolu-
tion envisages.
The commssioh will discuss the
best means of developing a workable
system of arbitration and security
among the nations. It will labor
simultaneously with the main prepara-
tory commission, but its membership
will be restricted to nations belonging
to the League. Jurists probably will
sit on the commission because of the
complicated judicial nature of the
problems to be considered.
.This special commission will be re-
sponsible, however, to the main dis-
armament commission on which the
United States is represented. It will
study means of. re-enforcing the
League covenant by suggesting se-
curity agreements, so that nations
may graduate their commitments in
proportion to the degree of solidarity
existing between them and the elab-
orate measures which the nation
would be prepared to take in support-
ing any recommendations or decisions
of the Council in the event of a con-
flict breaking out in any particular

Man of Wide Journalist e Experience I
ai 'ceeds ifoward P. Jones, Who
Resigned I Spring
Robert W. Desmond, recently an
editor on the Paris edition of the New
York Herald, and formerly connected
with the Milwaukee Journal and the
Miami Herald, a graduate of the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin, has taken charge
of the journalism classes, filling the
place left vacant by the resignation of
Mr. Howard P. Jones.
Mr. Desmond came to the Univer-
sity during summer session after
spending a year in Paris on the New
York Herald. He has had a varied ex-
perience in journalism, working on
the Milwaukee Times Weekly, going
from there to Florida to work in
Miami, and then to Milwaukee again
to work on the Journal, staying there
three years.
He is a member of Sigma Delta Chi,
honorary journalistic fraternity, and
graduated fron Wisconsin in 1922.
,Mr. Desmond will lecture and also
direct a laboratory course which is
an inovation, and aims at several
things; to provide the students with a
closer supervision, with more person-
al attention, and to open up markets
for the literary efforts of classes.
There will be three laboratory sec-
tions, meeting twice a week, for twb
hour periods.
To further facilitate the work of
journalism students, a secretary-li-
brarian has been added to the staff,
who is in charge of all periodicals and
books of the department. This is a
step in the final acquirement of a
library for the department.
As was done last year, a free-lance
class of writers will again be held this
year. Prominent journalists and free-
lance writers will address the class at
frequent intervals.
Besides the' addition of Mr. Des-
mond, Mr. Haines has also been added,
to the journolism department as a
part time instructor and will have
charge of the laboratory sections.
