Internal Relations.Of Life Should Be
Adapted To External Changes,
Educator Emphasizes
Stressing the necessity of both "bal-
last and sail" in types of citizens, the
need for open mindedness accompan-
ied by definite convictions, and recog-
nition of leadership rather than mere-
ly the effort to develop it, President
Ernest M. Hopkins of Dartmouth col-
lege addressed the fifth annual Honors
Convocation yesterday morning.
More thal 300 designated honor
students, largely from this year's sen-
ior class, occupied the section in the
front of the auditorium reserved for
them, wearing academic caps and
gowns, and more than 2000 others at-
tended the session. A selection by the
University Glee club and the singing
of "The Yellow and Blue" featured
the convocation.
Emphasizes Internal Relations
Internal relations of life, President
Hopkins emphasized, must be adapted
to changing external relations. It is
a most valuable part of the function
of the "amateur scholar" the educat-
ed citizen, to study these relations and
appreciate their development.
In order to allow for the training of
a type of individual capable of realiz-
ing these necessities, he said, the
ideal college should involve largely
leisure time, besides the rush of stud-
ies and activities.
Americans tend to urge activity, he
said, thus over-estimating the value
of motive forces. He likened thef
course of human life to that of a ship,.
pointing out that while without sails
there can be no motion, without bal-]
last there can be no balance. In life,
it is necessary to have two classes1
of effort and opinion, that. which is
active, and that which stabilizes.
Two Elenethts of Value
The two elements were estimated1
of equal value, and said to be mutuallyf
essential. To have progress there must
be definite opinions, avoiding the com-
placent equanimity which results
from over-emphasized open-minded-'
The nation, President Hopkins ex-]
plained, does not appear to be lacking
in leadeship. The development of1
qualities of leadership is so stressed'
in popular discussion of education that]
he fears that the importance of the
recognition of leadership when it ex-'
lists. The factors of operation must
not be given too much power, but
must be inter-act with the actors of '
In discussing more in detail the
various problems of scholarship, Pres-
ident Hopkins pointed out that the
social sciences have an additional
complication to those of the practical)
poences, in that while in the latter thel
problems can be seen and locatedi
clearly, in the founer the questions
are obscured, and require painstaking
labor ti be ascertained.]

Inquiries On Soft Coal Industry Of
Ohio Valley Are Finally
Concluded In House
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, May 1.-Death a-
gain turned aside plans of congres-
sional leaders today, word of the
aeroplane accident in which Repre-
sentative Sweet, of New York, lost
his life, causing the House to adjourn
without completing general debate on
the farm relief bill. The Senate ad-
journed out of respect to the memory
of the dead legislator, the sixth mem-
ber of the 70th Congress to die since
In the Senate, however, Smoot, of
Utah, held the floor for another two
hours and more to complete his op-
position to the Boulder Dam bill. The
end is not yet in sight for the Sen-
ate's fight over Boulder Dam. 'Ifomor-
row, however, the rules committee of
the House will take up the question
of providing legislative right-of-way
in that body for the huge rver regu-
lation project.
When the unexpected House ad-
journment was taken during the farm
relief debate, the time alloted for
speech making on the subject was al-
most exhausted. To prevent further
interruption and bring the voting
date forward tomorrow the Republi-
can management attempted unsuc-
cessfully to defer routing, and con-
tinue as soon as the House meets at
noon. The outlook was indefinite,
however, as to when the first amend-
ment would be dealt with.
Plan For Investigation
A new investigation that may
prove important in the 1928 campaign
will have its preliminary tomorrow
when Chairman Stewer, of Oregon,
named today by Vice-president Daw-
es, called together for the first time
the special committee create l to ex-
plore expenditures by and for presi-
dential candidates. Thus each can-'
didacy will come under quiz and
from what angle will be for the com-
mittee to decide.

The few remaining tickets for the
annual Senior Ball will be sold to the
members of all senior classes at the
main desk in the Union during all
hours that the building is open. The
booth formerly placed in University
hall for the purposes of this sale has
been removed. Contrary to a prev-
ious announcement the tickets will
sell for $5.50 and not $5.
The Union ballroom will be the
scene of the ance, which is to be
held Friday, May 18. According to
James Hughey, '28, general chairman
of the affair, the event will be a suc-
fessful one for the class as a large
portion of the tickets have already
been disposed of. Music will be fur-
nished by Frankie Quartell's record-
ing orchestra.
Favors for the ball have been or
dered for some time and will probably
be distributedthis week to all ticket
holders by the committee in charge.
Say S Announced By Committee For
First Annual Appearance
In Caps And Gowns
Swing-out, the first appearance of
all the senior's in their caps and
gowns, and the opening of graduation
activities for the whole class, will be
held next Tuesday afternoon. After
marching around the campus walks,
the classes from all the various
schools will a'ssemble at Hill audi-
torium for swing-out exercises.
John T. Snodgra'ss, '28, chairman of
swing-out committee, announced yes-
terday that Dean Henry Bates, of the
Law school, would be the principal
speaker on the program, and that the
Reverend Henry Lewis would give
the invocation.
The,proces'sion is to be led by the;
Varsity band, immediately followed by,
Robert Leland, president of the senior
literary class, and Courtland C.
Smith, president of the student coun-;
cil. It will be a two column pro-
The graduates of the various
schools and colleges will form in the
following order, and wear the tassel
of the specified color: literary stu-
dents, black tassels; engineering,
orange; architecture, orange and red;
medical, green; law, purple; dental,
lilac; pharmacy, olive; grad., light
blue; nursing, green and white; and
business administration students will
wear drab tassels.
The line of march, will in general,
follow the plan of former years. Form-1
ing in front of the Library, the seniors3
will go to University hall, then to the
Law building, and to Hill auditoriuml
for the exercises. After this they'
will make a general circle of thec
campus, the details of which will be
announced during the week. It is
urged that all seniors follow the -cus-
tom of wearing their caps and gownsI
each Wednesday on campus. The lo-
cation of the placards for the forming
of each school and college class will
also be announced later.
Work on the publishing of the1
Michiganensian for 1927-28 has been
nearly completed and an early de-
livery is expected on the annuals.
General distribution to those who
have bought subscriptions to the an-
nual will probably take place during
the -middle of the month.
SWord has been heard from the pub-
lishers that the printing of the year-
books is going forward rapidly so

that they will reach Ann Arbor
shortly. The routine work of distri-
buting them will go forward as soon
as they arrive here.

Investigators Cross-Examinen Operator
And Instruct Him To Be Ready
For Further Testimony
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, May 1.-Reappear-
ing before the Senate Teapot Dome
committee after an absence of four
yearstHarry F. Sinclair revealed to-
day that a total of $757,000 of the
liberty bond profits of the Continent-
al Trading company of Canada were
delivered to him.
The lessee of Teapot Dom'e, who is
under a sentence of three.months in
jail by reason of his refusal to testi-
fy further before the Senate investi-
gators .in 1924, declared that he had
paid over a like amount of securities

connection with the lease of the Wy-
oming naval oil reserve.
Company Secures Interest 1
This company purchased one-half
of the oil which the Continental con-{
cern bought from the late A. E.
Humphreys, of Denver, and it re-;
ceived $759,500 in liberty bonds 10:
days ago from Robert W. Stewart,
chairman of the board of the Stand-1
ard Oil Company of Indiana, who,i
with Sinclair, H. W. Blackmer, andi
James E. O'Neill were the moving c
figures in the Continental transac-
Sinclair was on the stand for moret
than four hours and was subjected to
a searching inquiry by Senator Walsh
of Montana, the committee prosecut-
or; Senator Nye, Republican, North
Dakota, chairman of the committee,
and Senator Bratton, Democrat, New
Mexico. His chief counsel, Martin W.t
Littleton, of New York, upon whose
advice he refused to answer fourt
years ago, sat to his left, and the twot
conferred occasionally.
The committee apparently had notr
finished with Sinclar after the two
sessons and he was told to hold him--
self in readiness to return tomorrowt
if needed.
The wealthy oil operator and
sportsman appeared entirely at his
ease during the two-hour and a quar-
ter of the morning session, but ap-
parently he began to tire before the
afternoon session had ended. He
frequently changed his position In the
witness chair and occasionally turn-
ed his eyes to the celing as he an-
swered the rapid fire of uestons. t
Sinclair Testifiest
From' the first, Sinclair insisted thatI
he was unaware that the bonds he I
received came from the Continental
Trading company; that he knew t
Blackmer had arranged to purchaset
oil from Humphreys and that he had
made his arran'gements with the for-#
mer chairman of the board of the1
Midwest Refining company for a
share of the profits for his company.
Asked whether many of the bonds
had been delivered to him by H. S.
Osler ,of Toronto, Canada, president
of the Continental company, the oil1
operator said he could not recall, but1
his impression was that he receved
most if not all of them either from
Blackmer or a messenger. He never
gave a receipt for any of the secur-
ities; as he received them he placed
them in his vault along with other,
liberty bonds.
Covering much of the ground which;
other witnesses have gone over in
detail, Sinclair said he paid out $233.-;
000 in bonds to M. T. Eberhart, of;
Pueblo, Colorado, son-in-law of Al-
bert B. Fall, after the lease of Tea-;
pot Dome, and asserted that he had
received the stock certificates for a

one-third interest in Fall's Tres Rios
Land and Cattle company in return'
for the payment.

Paul J. Ker n, 29, was chosen yes-
terday as editor of The Daily for the
coming year. He will assume his
duties in this capacity immediately.
The remainder of the editorial staff
of this publication for next year will
be announced in tomorrow's Daily.
The announcement of these positions
will be made at the office in the Press

Justin C. Weaver, 729, Will Explain
Rules To Freshmen At
ieeting Tonight
Members of the class of 1930 will
meet at 4:15 o'clock tomorrow after-
noon in Natural science auditorium to
elect the captain for the annual spring
games to be held Friday and Satur-
day of this week, it was announced
yesterday by Russell D. Sauer, '30L,
chairman of the Student council com-
mittee in charge of the events.
Sauer and John R. Gilmartin, '29E,
will speak to the 'sophomores at this
time,'explaining the rules and regu-
lations of all the events and supervis-
ing the election of the captain.
The freshmen will gather at a pep
meeting to be held tonight in the main
assembly hall of the Union. This
meeting will be conducted by Justin
C. Weaver, '29, chairman of the under-'
class committee of the Union, and
speeches by Carl Brandt, of the speec'h
department, Robert Leland, '28, presi-
dent of the senior class, and explan-
ation of the rules and regulations of
the games to be given by Sauer. The
Varsity band will also be on hand to
provide added spirit'to the meeting.
At this meeting, Ain .addition to the
talks, the electon of the freshman
captain for the game's will be made.
The sophomore class faces its
chance to maintain its clean record
set at all previous games. It defeated
the class of 1929 in both the spring
and fall games last year and defeated'
the present freshman class in the fall
games this year. If the sophomores
are victorious again they will set a
record seldom attained by any clas
in the history of the games in re-'
cent years.
Major George P. Ahern, director of
the Tropical Plant Research founda-
tion of Washington, D.C., and Arthur
Koehler, technician of the Forest
Products Laboratory at Madison, Wis.,
were in Ann Arbor yesterday to at-
tend a conference on the testing of
tropical timber.
Material collected in South and Cen-
tral America by Tom Gill will soon
be shipped to the School of Forestry
and Conservation here for wood util-
ization tests. Prof. William A. Kynoch
of the forestry 'school will conduct
the local tests in cooperation with the
Tropical Plant Research foundation
under whose auspices the Gill expedi-
tion was sent out. Mr. Koehler was
here to help advise the testers and to
inspect the new wood utilization lab-
oratory being in'stalled in the old hos-
pital heating unit.
All of the species collected by the
expedition are rare hardwoods of com-
paratively little known species. They
were secured chiefly in British Guinea
and Venezuela. Mr. Gill, who under-'
took the expedition, has already re-
turned to New York, while the woods
are enroute to the United States now.
Professor Kynoch of the local forestry
school will leave 'soon for New York
city where he will supervise the cut-
ting up of the species and their ship-
ment to Ann Arbor. Logs ten feet
long and 16 inches thick will be sent
here for testing.
In the wood utilization laboratories
here the woods will be tested for gen-
eral shrinkage, tensile strength, con-
tortion, compression, and strength.
After these have been determined fac-
tory tests as to their, best usage will
be made in various factories through-

out Michigan.
