Speaker Will Make Some Forecasts Of
Proposed South Pole Flights
Of Coming Year
Having risen to greater heights
since his appearance here last year
when he discussed his North Pole
flight before an Ann Arbor audience
in Hill auditorium, Commander Rich-
ard E. Byrd, now conqueror of the At-
lantic by air, will speak in Hill audi-
torium at 8 o'clock tonight on the
Oratorical lecture series program.
Commander Byrd's subject will be
"The Atlantic and Other Flights."
Commander Byrd will illustrate his
talk tonight with motion pictures of
the air undertakings which have
served to make him an international
figure. In addition to relating his
experiences on the Atlantic flight
which attracted world wide attention
last May, the speaker tonight will
make some forecast as to the possi-
bility of his South Pole expeditions
which, according to advance predic-
tions and preparations already under
way for some length of time, will be
one of the greatest undertakings ever
attempted on sea, land or air.
Presents Two Viewpoints
With the tremendous interest now
being manifested in regard to air navi-
gation and aviation at the present
time, Oratorical officials point out
that Commander Byrd, who treats his
subject from both the scientific and
experimental viewpoint, is probably
the most interesting and timely speak-
er that could be secured at this time.
A Virginian by birth, Commander
Byrd has lived a life of great adven-
ture. His life has been filled with
exploits far beyond the usual lot of
man. He first attracted the attention
of the flying world when he had charge
of the NC boats for the government in
1919. At that time he left the NC-1 at
Newfoundland to fly the airship C-5 to
England, but the ship was lost before
It started. He later planned to navi-
gate the ZR-2 back from England but
the ship blew up leaving him the sole
surviving officer. Later Commander
Byrd was with MacMillan in the
Arctic, following which he made his
North Pole flight and gained for him-
self the title of explorer-scientist.
Has Earned Honors
During the past two years Comman-
der Byrd has been the recipient of a
score of medals and decorations.
When crossing the Atlantic last May,
his plane, the "America," carried the
heaviest load that any plane ever at-
tempted to carry over that body of
water. three accomplices being in-
cluded in the memorable flight which
came to an end when the "America"
was forced to land upon the sea at
Ver-Sur-Mer. It was the decision of
Commander Byrd that saved the lives
of himself and his three companions.
Persons holding tickets for to-
night's lecture are requested by Rob-
ert S. Miller, '28, president of the Ora-
torical association, to be in their seats
by 8 o'clock as the program will start
promptly at that hour. Tickets will
be on sale at the box office.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 21-Reorgani-
zation of the Nicaraguan national
guard under command of American
officers was provided for in the agree-
ment, negotiated by Henry L. Stim-
son as President Coolidge's personal
representative which teri-nated the
civil war in that country.
Pending reorganization of the na-
tional guard under American com-
mand, the force of Marines in Nica-
ragua was augmented to insure an
adequate police force.
Presumably the reorganization of
the national guard or the constabu-
lary on the basis outlined in the
agreement has reached a point where
it can begin to take over the duty
of policing the country until the elec-
tion is held next year and the prob-
lem of maintaining order can be sur-
rendered to the president elected at
that time.
There is no indication, howeverj
that the force of American marine!
in Nicaragua will be substantially re-
duced for son-e time and it is vir-
tually certain that a considerable
number of Marines will be retained
there to back up the national guard
until after the election.

of northern Colorado's strike-ridden coal fields where four strikers were
killed and 20 woundel in the first open hostilities since the strike was
called five weeks ago by Industrial 'Workers of the World.
Gunfire from the barrels of weapons held by 20 officers blazed into

in Weld county, the only coal mine still operating in the northern fields.

Final Action On Resolution Against
Ban To Be Taken At Meeting
This Afternoon '
Final action will be taken on the
protest against the auto ban when the
Interfraternity council holds a special
meeting at 4:30 o'clock this afternoon
in room 304 of the Union.
The resolution was postponed from
the last meeting held Nov. 7 since
many members felt that it should be
restated before being presented to the
Board of Regents. A special commit-
tee, appointed by Wayne Schroeder,.
'28, president of the council, is in
charge of framing the protest in its
proper and final form.
All houses are urged to send dele-
gates to this session since, in addition I
to the auto ban protest, other im-
portant matters are to be discussed.
It is suggested that, in accord with the
resolution passed several weeks ago,
each fraternity elect a regular dele-.
gate to attend all meetings of the
council. In this way quicker and
more intelligent action may be secur-
ed since all the members will be con-
versant with the business before the
Two other questions will come be-
fore the council at today's meeting.
Two delegates must be elected to at-
tend the meetings of the National In-
terfraternity conference to be held in
New York Nov. 25 and 26, where more
than 200 men from 60 fraternities will
meet to discuss problems of nation
wide interest to fraternities. It is also
probable that the deferred rushing
problem will be again brought to the
attention of the council. This is a
question which has been rife for four
or five years and it is the general
hope that this year's Interfraternity
council will be able to take some
definite action. Old records referring
to delayed rushing are being unearth-
ed from the archives of the council in
an effort to gain some working ma-
