POTTER BACKS RIGHT
OF SCHOOL TO EXPEL
SAYS COURT WOULD UPHOLD
RIGHT OF REGENTS TO
QUESTION NOT LEGAL ONE
Attorney General Thinks University
Has Necessary Authority To
(y Assoiated Press)
LANSING, Oct. 29.-University of
Michigan authorities have the right
to expel students for operating auto-
mobiles, in the opinion of W. W. Pot-
ter, attorney general. Ile forwarded
a ruling to this effect today in reply
to a request from Courtland C. Smith,
president of the University Studet
Th attorney general admitted that
the Board of Regents has no legal
right to prohibit the ownership or
operation of a motor vehicle by a stu-
dent, this right be governed by state
laws which do not discriminate against
Cites Test Case
On the other hand, he believes the
University authorities have the right
to enforce rules deemed necessary
for the conduct of the University. The
attorney general cited a Supreme
court decision in the case of an Ypsi-
lanti co-ed who appealed from her
expulsion for smoking cigaretes. While
(igaret smoking on the street is not
illegal, the Supreme court ruled the
question involved was not one of le-
gality of the act, but of the reason-
ableness of the rules promulgated by
the Normal. The girl's expulsion was
"Whether certain conduct or mis-
condu t is legal ground for expulsion
does z1ot depend upon whether the
conduct or misconduct itself is unlaw-
ful under state laws," Mr. Potter's
opion continued. "The smoking of
a pipe in a class room by a student is
not unlawful, but doubtless a student
who persisted in doing so might be
legally subject to expulsion.
Opinion Of Courts
"We are of the opinion the courts
would uphold the authority of the
Board of Regents of the University to
make the regulations relative to mo-
tor cars, and we are of the opinion the
Board of Regents is within its author-
ity in ruling that no student at the
University shall operate a motor veh-
icle, except in extraordinary cases un-
der the direction of the dean of stu-
dents. The enjoyment of attentling
public schools is necessarily condoned
upon compliance with reasonable
rules. Ordinarily school authorities
have the right to define the offenses
fr which the punishment is exclusion.

power of school authorities over pupils

nounced by Carl G. Brandt, of the
speech department, who is in charge
of this year's series. This was prev-

the complete 1927-28 series was an-
nounced, although it was almost cer-
tain at the time that Governor
Ritchie would appear here.
Governor Ritchie, who is rated as
one of the most interesting politcal
figures in America today, and who is
a prospective candidate for the presi-
dency, will take as the subject of his
address here "Centralization of Gov-

from abroad where he made an exten-

Committee to Choose
Standard Colors o f
Z apes for Graduates
Appointment of a committee from
the University Senate for the consider-
ation of proper colors of capes and
tassels for University graduating
classes was announced yesterday by
Dr. Frank Robbins, assistant to the
President. The committee will set
standard colors before the graduation
exercises next spring.
The last investigation made of this
subject was in 1922, by a similar com-
mittee from.the University Senate, but
since that time three new schools and
colleges, the School of Education, the
School of Education, the School of
Business Adniinistration, and the
School of Forestry and Conservation
have been added to the University,
and oi additional department, the de-
partment of library science.
No provision has thus far been made
for insignia for these new schools and
as a result the present committee will
be called upon to investigate the sub-
Several inconsistencies have been
pointed out in the University practice
here, Dr. Robbins explained, and these
will. be straightened out before the
next Commencement exercises are
held. The committee appointed will
bring all of the regulations up to
date, according to the general practice
of educational institutions through-
out the country.
Those who will serve on this re-
cently appointed committee are: Dean
George W. Patterson of the Colleges
of Engineering and Architecture, Prof.
C. C. Glover, of the mathematics de-
partment, and Prof. H. P. Thieme of
the Romance languages department.
MANY ESSENTIAL WITNESSES FOR
THE GOVERNMrENT RESIDE
WILL REST CASE SOON
Counsel Is Now Undertaking To Proie
That Only Sinclair Is Directly
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 29-- With the
completion of the story of the opera-
tions of the short-lived but celebrated
Continental Trading Company, Ltd..
of Canada, special government oil
counsel will complete early next weel
the presentation of their case to the
jury in the Teapot Dome conspiracy
While they have produced witnesses
to connect Harry F. Sinclair witn the
operations of that company, they have
expressed scant hope of any direct
evidence tq show that he ever was in
possession of the $230,500 in Liberty
bonds, which the givernment contends
were once held by the Continental
Trading company and subsequently
obtained by M. T. Eberhart, son-in-
law of Albert B. Fall, and used for
his ownbenefit and for that of Fall,
Just as was the case when civil
suit was tried at Cheyenne, Wyoming,
the government is without the testi-
mony of four men they have sought
to elicit information from. Eberhart
refused to answer a question as to
where he got the bonds, standing on
his constitutional right that he did not
have to answer because his evidence
might tend to incriminate him.
H. S. Osler, a Canadjian citizen,
president of the Continental comp-
any, who, the government has testi-
many to show, directed the purchase
of the bonds for the Continental comp-
any, -is unavailable for a subpoena.
The other two men who, the gov-
ernment counsel contends, could tell
about the Continental company in its'
details, are Harry M. Blackmer. for-
mer chairman of the board of the
Midwest Refining company and James
O'Neill, former president of the Prai-
rie Oil and Gas company. They have
been sojourning in Europe since the
early days of the oil investigation.
In the absence of these witnesses,
government counsel are undertaking
to show to the jury that Sinclair wasj
