lege of Literature, .Science nd the
Arts, will preside at the lechtre. Pres-
ident Dodge will be intniuced by
Prof. Earnest A. Fisher, o the School
of Business Administration, Profes-
sor Fisher is especially acquainted
with the work of President Dodge
since he served under him as a facul-
ty member several years ago.
President Dodge, son of the late
Cleveland H. Dodge of New York city,
follows the tradition of the family in
his association with educational and
philanthropic endeavors. His fat er
was closely associated with several
educational Institutions both in New
York city and abroad. President
Dodge is the fifth in the line of fam-
ous philanthropists in the Dodge fam-

He was graduated from Princeton
in 1909, and for a year following th'

returned to complete his education.
He holds now a degree from' the
Union Theological Seminary in New
York City, his masters degree from

In 1913 President Dodge was ap-
pointed to the staff of the American

both in American and Syria, and cre-
ated the greatest enthusiasm through-
out the Near Eastern world. President
Dodge, by his unassuming but states-'
manlike manner, commands the ad-
miration and the confidence of offi-
cials and governments, and occupies
a position of outstanding leadership
in the whole Near Eastern world.
Student Body 'Representative
The American University of Beirut
occupies a position of unique and
commanding influence in the Near
Eastern area. The student body, num-
bering 1215, is highly representative
of many of the countries in that part
of the world. Native rulers and na-
tional leaders recognize this insti-
tution as an outstanding inflence for
improvement and rehabilitation of
their countries.
The visit and the address by Pres-
ident Dodge is arousing much interest
among the Syrians on the campus. A
gathering of Syrians is being arrang-
ed in his honor, and S'aturday night
the Cosmopolitan club is holding a
special session to entertain him.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 5.-Farm relief
came up for its first round of con-
sideration this session in the Senate
today amid an atmosphere abparently
as bitter as of old.
At the outset, Chairman McNary
of the agriculture committee, inspired
the McNary-Haugen bill supporter
who -again claim a majority in the
Senate, with the prediction that the

revised measure would be sent to th
White House by Congress by March 1
where he hoped it would be signed
by President Coolidge.
After Senator McKellar, Democrat
Tennessee, had urged passage of th
bill, McNary informed the Senate tha
his committee would take up th
measure probably about Feb. 1.
Senator McNary has revised the bil
to meet many of the objections pointe
out by President Coolidge in vetoing
the proposal. As a result he expresse
hope for presidential approval, despit
the fact that the bill still carries the
controversial equalization fee, t
which President Coolidge objected.
While Senators Bruce, Democrat
Maryland, and McKellar became en
tangled in a spirited row over far

BATTLE CREEK, Jan. 5-Bad he-

Fielding H. Yost, athletic director1
of the University of Michigan, appear-
ed less concerned over problens of
heredity than with the development of

Little Denies Paper
ReportsOf Meeting
President Clarence Cook Little
emphatically denied yesterday that he
had seen President Coolidge during
the holidays in an attempt to have
federal aid for Michigan State College
transferred to the University. Sev-
eral newspapers of the state had re-
ported that to be the object of Presi-
dent Little's trip to Washington.
The President, who returned yes-
terday from the third annual Race
Betterment Conference in Battle
Creek, stated that his conference with
President Coolidge was about a mat-
ter which concerns only himself and
President Coolidge. "I did not try to
divert federal aid from any unit now
receiving that money," President
Little declared.
The rumored purpose of the trip to
Washington came probably as an out-
come of a recent interview in which

Reported At Idaho
As Result Of Jam
(By Associated 'rs)
.SPOKANE, Jan. 5-Ice jams in the
Clearwater rixvr in Idaho today
spread flood waters from the river
ehannel over a wide area, driving
residents to higher ground, interrupt-
ing railroad transportation andi
throwing hundreds of mill workers
out of employment.
Several communities were menaced
and highways were inundated by the
high waters resulting froni nyting
snow in the mountains which have
swollen creeks and rivers and clogged,
them with ice.
A three mile ice jam blocked the l
Clearwater river betwen Spauldiog
and Arrow and dammed the water to
a depth of 12 to 15 feet above the
I normal state. Northern Pacific rail-
!way tracks at Arrow were Jloodedl
with two to three feet of water.

I MANAGUA, Nicaragua, Jan. 5.
Setting a course from Tegucigalpa,
which carried him down the western
border of Nicaragua to Leon, and
thence to Managua, Col. Charles A.
Lindbergh, ambassador of good will
front the United States, landed on the
flying field in the suburbs of the
capital at 2:25 o'clock this afternoon.
The air line distance from Teguci-
galpa to Managua is approximately
165 miles, but the aviator flew con-
siderable more than that
Colonel Lindbergh took the longer
route to avoiO any possibility of pass-
ing over the disturbed territory in
the northwest.
Masses Swarm Field
Thirty thousand people had assem-
bled at the field-most of them were
there since early morning-to watch
the coming of the Lone Eagle, which
is the name above all others that
Nicaraguans prefer to call him. As
ithe Spirit of St. Louis appeared from
behind one of the volcanoes, like a
tiny bird at first, with an escort of
Marine planes which had gone out
to meet it, aii hour before, the crowd
burst intto cheers. Their long wait
was rewarded. The shouts, "There be
comes," were picked up by all the
small children, who struggled and
tugged in the arms of their parents'
to get a better view. Beautiful s2
noritas, modestly gowned, forgot the
dust and their fine clothes, and joined
the sprinting masses in the rush to
be near the plane when it cane to

Field Is Decorated
A beautifully decorated field greet-
ed the airman, and in a prominent
place a huge sign in white block let-
ters stood out clearly. The inscrip-
tion was, "Republica de Nicaragua
bienvenido," - Nicaragua's welcome.
The great field of more than 1,300
acres was marked with flags and ban-
ners. Lindbergh flying swiftly came
directly above the field, circled it
several times and landed gracefully.
A huge cloud of dust was stirred i,
for the grass and vegetation had been

The Spirit of St. Louis came to a
stop, the Nicaraguan band played the
Star Spangled Banner, and there were
thunderous cheers from the assembl-
ed multitude, with shouts of "Viva
Lindbergh," "Vivas Los Estados Uni-
dos." Smiling is usual, the airman
stepped from the plane and was
greeted by Dr. Dana G. Munro, the
American charge d'affaires. He then
presented Colonel Lindbergh to the
high Nicaraguan oficials and to the
reception committee, composed of
prominent Nicaraguans and several
Americans, including Gen. E. R. Bea-

Presentation Is Made
Gen. Jose Maria Zealayo, mayor of
Managua, presented Colonel Lind-
bergh with the silver key of the city.
Then Col. Mason Gulick; commander

of the United States Marines and Ma-
jor Rowell, in charge of Marine avia-
tion, greeted the flier, who was cheer-
ed again and again.
After the presentation, Lindbergh
turned and waved cheerily to the
crowd. He remarked that he was glad
to be in Nicaragua and knew that his
stay would be a delightful one.
From the flying field, the official
party, with the aviator in the place
of honor, proceeded by automobile to-
ward Managua. It was a continuous
ovation all along the way and flowers
were thrown in front' of and into the
car as the Viking of the air passed,
and children and senoritas were lavish
in the kisses they threw at him.
The automobile went directly to the
historic Camp de Marte, the home of
the Nicaraguan president, Adolfo Diaz.

greeted the flier most cordially, ex-
