Under Direction of Mans Pick,
Of School Of Music


Ralph L. Belknap, second in com-
mand of Prof. William H. Hobbs' e'c-
ond Greenland expedition, has just re-
turned to Ann Arbor with the first full
reports of the expedition's activities.
Leaving Camp Lloyd at the head of
Kangendlugssdak Fjord on the south-
western coast of Greenland on Sept.
12, Mr. Belknap and Professor Hobbs
aboard the 22-tdn motor schooner
Walrus chartered by the expedition,
rbached Holstenborg on Sept. 23.
Leaving Holstenborg aboard the
Disko, Danish government ship, they
proceeded down the coast of Green-
land stopping at villages on the way,,
finally quitting the coast on Sept. 29,
and reaching Copenhagen on October
hobbs Gives Lectures
Professor Hobbs accepted invita-
tions to give lectures in Sweden at
Stockholm and Guteborg, and at the
request of Rasmussen, noted polar ex-
plorer, he addressed a Danish scien-
tific society. Proceeding to Germany
and France, he landed in Paris on
October 20, and after declining several
invitations to. lecture In Iolland, he
sailed for England. In England Hobbs
spoke before several scientific organ-
izations including the Royal Geo-
graphic Society.
Hobbs Aboard Leviathan
He sailed yesterday from South-
ampton aboard the Leviathan, expect-
ing to land in Ncw York the end of
this week. He will remain in New
York one or two days, possibly go to
Washington for a day, and return at'
the end of next week to Ann Arbor,
stopping en route at the Eastman-
Kodak laboratories in Rochester where
.the films exposed by the expedition
are being developed.
Belknap went to Paris from Copen-
hagen, left there Oct.. 20 and arrived
in Ann Arbor Sunday evening, after
stopping en route at the Eastman-'
Kodak laboratories.
The silence of the expedition's wire-
less transmitting set was explained by
Belknap yesterday. When the party
landed at the head of Kanendlugss-
dak Fjord on July 2, the radio appar-
atus was transferred to land and set
up near Camp Lloyd on the shore of
the fjord. The location proved un-
satisfactory, and it was decided tol

Late Rush Expected
For 'Ensiani Pictures!

Acting on a resolution of a student,
the board of directors of the Union
has endorsed the project of installing
alumni shelves in Pendleton library.
As the plan is now proposed It con-
sists in inviting the alumni who have
written books to present, as gifts to
the Union, their writings inscribed
with the author's names.
The books will be placed on special
shelves in Pendleton library where
they will be available to students. A
system such as this has been used
successfully at the Harvard Union for
a number of years.
William E. Nissen, '29, has been ap-
pointed chairman of the committee
which will take care of arangements
for this and has already begun work
on it. A list of the alumni who have
written books- is complete and has ap-
peared at different times in the Mich-
igan Alumnus. According to Wilfred'
Shaw, the editor, this is a practically'
complete list but he will aid the com-
mittee in making it more complete..
Will Send Form Letters
When the list is completed, a form
letter will be sent to all alumni au-
thors asking them for a copy of the
book which they wrote, to be signed
by them and kept on shelves provided
for the purpose.
Investigation' of the possibilities of
the alumni shelves was begun at the
instigation of Lester F. Johnson, '27L,
president of the Union last year and
was carried on-by a committee. Inter-
views with 'various officials, Shaw,
Hawley Tapping, secretary of the
Alumni association, and Francis L.
Goodrich, associate University librar-
ian, proved that the plan was well
liked and it is due to this that the
arrangements have been started this
From these interviews the follow-'
ing conclusions were drawn:
1. That no record exists of the
alumni of the University who have
published works.
2., That such an undertaking would'
require a great deal of research.
3. That it is worthwhile work and
a project that might well be under-
taken by the' Union.
4. That the hearty co-operation of
the University librarians and the of-
ficial of the Alumni association may
be expected.
Committee To Be Formed
The committee of which Nissen 'is
chairman will consist of one senior,
one junior and two sophomores, since
it is believed that in this way the
matter will be handled in the most
effiicient and complete manner. Each
committee member will end his term
of office with graduation and in this
way the committee will be continued
from year to year.,
Although many of these plans were
ma'de last spring snothing definite hadJ
been done before now toward carrying
out these arrangements. It will be
taken up now in earnest and will be
carried on for the complete collection
of works by alumni of the University.

Informat on Received By Government
Agents In Raid Is Basis
For Inquiry
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 1.-The Fall-
Sinclair trial came to a dramatic halt
today while a grand jury began inves-
tigating charges of efforts at jury-'
tampering which furnished sensations
rivalling those when the oil scandal
first broke in the Senate.
This inquiry was predicted largely
upon information obtained by govern-
ment agents in a night raid upon an
apartment in the fashionable Ward-
man Park Hotel occupied by operat-
ives of the Burns Detective agency oft
New York City.
In bringing this trial to a pause, if
not the ultimate end, special govern-
ment oil counsel presented four affi-
davits in which were named Harry F.
Sinclair, lessor of Teapot Dome, and7
one of the defendants on trial; A.c
Mason Day, vice-president of the Sin-t
clair Exploration company; Donald
Woodward, president of Woodward and
Lothrop, Washington's leading depart-]
ment store; Edward J. Kidwell, juror
number 11, a young leather worker,
and two Burns operatives. 1
Evidence Under Advisement.
Meanwhile, after examining the affi-
davits in chambers in the presence of !
counsel and of Sinclair 'and Albert B.-
Fall, the other defendant, the trial1
judge, Justice Frederick L. Siddons,
took under advisement until tomorrowt
whether the evidence was such as to
warrant the declaration of a mistrial.t
Meanwhile, the two women and 10
men constituting the jury, which has
not been locked up as was done with
the Fall-Donehey jury last year, was
excused for the day after being held
at the District of Columbia Supreme'
court under close guard for several
hours while Justice Siddons consid-
ered the affidavits.
These documents deal with two sep-
arate phases of a case that now has
become one of the most celebrated in
the annals of District of Columbia
courts. Two of the affidavits referred1
to the activities of the Burns agents,
and the other two to conversations af-
fiants swore they had last year with
Juror Kidwell.
"Conversation" Presented.
J. Ray Akers, a street car conduc-
tor, and Donald T. King, a Washington
newspaper man, detailed conversa-
tions they said they had with Kidwell
in which the juror was quoted as
having expressed "great admiration"
for Sinclair, because of his "demo-
cratic manner," and as having said
that "If I don't have one' (an automo-
bile) as long as this block, I will be
much disappointed."
Kidwell was also quoted as saying
he had been picked as a juror because
he was "a pretty good yes-and-no
man" and that "these smart lawyers
could not make him say what he did
not want to say."
The affiants said these conserva-
tions took place in a "soft drink" es-
tablishment in a back street of south-
west Washington.
