Bill Submitted By City For Damages
To Property D)uring Freshma14n.
Sophomore Tug Of War
Endorsement of the Fall open con-
vocation and recommendiaition thiat the
custom be revived next year was
moved and passed by the Student
council at their regular weekly meet-
ing la'st night. In the opinion of the
council, the omission last fall of the
customiary convocation to open the
school year was regretted by a suffi-
cient number of upperclassmen to
warrant a move for its revival.
David Wheeler, '29, reporting on the
bill of $39 submitted by the city to the
council for damages to city property
during the freshman-sophomore tug
of war, announced that bhe had made
,arrangements with Eli A. Gallup, city
park commissioner and the city en-
gineer for repairs to cost $17 or less.
The city's bill was itemized at $9
for labor and $30 for curbstones to re-
p'iace those brokeni during the games.'
The labor item covered the filling of
the holes dug by the sophomores on
the south bank of the river for in-
trenchment purpose's.
Will Pay Bill
Wheeler recommended that, the bill
for labor be paid in full, iand that $8
be paid to a trucking company for
hauiling to the river (curbstones)
which could be obtained gratis during
the summer. This proposition was

"Can you throw the rope out so as
to ciatch a man's feet while he is walk-
ing across the floor?" Roy Hoyer ask-
ed of the young man who was doing
some roping stunts on the stage of the
Mimes theater, last night. ""Sure" the
young man replied promptly, and after'
a victim had been selected, neatly
tripped up the pedestrian tiptoeing
across the stage. At the quer§ con-
cerning his ability to catch four
young men in similar style, the rope
expert expressed some doubt but ask-
ed only practice.
The roper was folilowed by another

Opera tryout who acknowledged that
he could throw knives with accuracy.
Hoyer called on a redlheladed chorus
boy who some day may wear skirts
and a wig, to offer himself +as a sacri-
fice, but on the extreme bashfulness
of "Red" to let knives whirl around
him, the tryout. was postponed till a
later date.
The rope handler comes from a
ranch in Parras, Mexico, where he has
spent time with .cowboys. The rope
last night was not of the right tex-
ture a'nd flexibility, but a few of the
more familiar rope tricks were pulled
off for the satisfaction of the chorus
boys, gathered on the stage. The boy
who can handle a mean knife,wdid
nothing but play a, few moments with
a foil but that was dangeous enough.
Having been entertained a few min-
utes. by such going-ons, the boys,
from whom part of the next chorus-
es will be chosen, were cialled to the
center of the stage where they burst
into a mad Black Bottom, sans music.
Feature acts have been lacking from
Operas, and those whohove thAt
"something different" are welcomed
by the Opera managers and directors.


said to be acceptable to the city, and
was adopted in full by the council.
Election of officers was held for tiheI
ensuing year at which Robert F. War-
ren, '29, was chosen vice-president,
Willard E. Lowry, '30, secretary, and,
John R. Gilmartin, '29E, treasurer.
Two ballots were necessary in the vice
presidential election to break a tie be-
tween Warren and Eugene Easterly,
Paul J. Kern, '29, president, an-
nounced in the absence of Richard S.
Spindle, '29E, that arrangements had
been made with the Athletic associa-
tion to begin registration of men for
the cheering 'section next fall, and that I
the work would begin at the end of!
the present week.
Committee Chosen
Reporting on Earl E. Fleischman's
proposal for a First Nighters' club to
unify dramiatic interest on the campus,
Lowry stated to the council that
faculty men whom he :had interviewed
on the proposition were in favor of a
scheme of unification but advised the:
counicil to proceed slowly in giving
its support to the First Nighters' club
specifically. After discussion a mo-
tion was passed to appoint a commit-
tee of three to consider the problem 1
and draft a resolution to be published
tomorrow. Councilmen Lowry, Gil-
martin, and Warren were appointed
to the drafting committee.
Appointments to the Advisory com-
mittee of the council were ainnounced
by Kern as follows: ex-officio, War-
ren and Kenneth G. Patrick, '29, and'
Gilmartin and Ernest B. McCoy, '29.
These men will sit with the University
Discipline committee next year and
with the Senate Committee oni Stu-
dent Affairs.
A motion to appoint a committee
was passed to cooperate with Prof.
William A. Frayer in securing upper-
classmen to advise the freshmen dur-
ing Freshmen week next fall. The
members of this committee will be an-
nounced later.

Italian Commander Crosses Over Pole
For The Second Time
In A Year
(By Associated Press)
KING'S BAY, Spitzbergen, May 24.
-Coated with much ice and with a
strong southwest wind against it, the
dirigible Italia today was slowly mak-
ing its way back to the base at King's
Bay after a brilliant flight to the
North pole.
Gen. Umberto Nobile, successful in
his second dirigible flight to the top
of the world, sent three historic mes-
sages from the pole, one to Pope Pius,
telling the pontiff that he had dropped
the cross entrusted to him on the
North pole from the Italia and the
others to King Victor Emanuel and
Premier Mussolini. While over the
pole the flags of Italy and Milan and
various othr souvenirs were dropped.
The cross which was about six feet
high with a metal base had a repos-
itory in which was placed a message
written in Latin by Pope Pius.
For two hours the dirigible cruised
over the pole, reaching the spot at 20
minutes after midnight, 19 hours and
30 minutes after leaving King's bay.
At 2:20 a. m. the return flight was be-.
gun, the dirigible following the 24th
meridian to the halfway point about
350 miles from the pole, and then turn
ing for King's Bay.
At noon today, the Italia wirelessed
her base ship, the Cittia Milano, that
she was halfway home and that she
would probably reach King's bay some
time after midnight.
General Nobile had planned to land
several men at the pole to make ob-
servations but the message received
at King's bay indicated that this part
of the plan had not been carried out.
Elmer J. Ottoway, '94, of Port Hur-
on, Michigan, president of the Alumni
Association, who was in Ann Arbor
for a short visit Tuesday and Wednes-
day, left yesterday with Hawley Tap-
ping, field secretary, to attend a joint
meeting of the Rotary and University'
of Michigan clubs of Owosso, Michi-
gan. While in Ann Arbor, Mr. Otto-
way held several conferences with
President Little concerning the gen-
eral program of the association for
the coining year.

Can Decide Issue Of War By Stopping
Advancement Of North Or
South Troops
(By Associated Press)
TOKIO, May 24--Japan, through its
control of Tsinan, the key city of
Shangtung province, and through its
ascendancy in Manchuria, holds the
warring factions of China at its mer-
cy, so the Japan Chronicle, the Eng-
lish-language daily published at Kobe
In discussing Japan's position and
opportunities in China, the Chronicle
says: "Japan holds Mukden and Tsin-
an and can minimize or entirely pre-
vent the advance of reinforcements of
either the Northern or the Southern
armies exactly as she wishes, and that
without taking any visible action. Sh(
can accomplish it simply by an or-
der holding up the trains at either
point; thus the issue of the war i.
entirely in Japan's hands and which-
ever way it turns it will be becausE
Japan decides it shall turn that way.'
Great Business Interests
it may be that Japan does not car<
whether the North or the South wins
concludes the Chronicle. "We are al-
ways told of the blood and treasurt
with wich they were bought, not
to speak of their economic necessity
Japan's interests in Shantung were
from 1915 to 1922, almost as great, al
though the Washington treaty appar-
ently changed all that. However, ther(
were considerable properties and bus
iness interests left even when th<
military troops were withdrawn an(
the military and civil administratior
handed over. For the second time th(
protection of these interests have jus-
tified precautions such as would b(
(and have been) taken in Manchuria
when anything menaced Japanese in
terests there.
"Japan, therefore, is the arbiter of
fate for the Chinese faction and can
secure agreements from both of them
at the same time. Moreover, her posi-
tion in Northeastern Asia is so strong
that no other state will find fault with
her action in this region. It i's only
necessary to add that Baron Tanaka
now premier and foreign minister,
was intimately associated with the
Chinese policy which was supposed to
have come to an end at Washington."

pects of research in scientific fields
before the annual initiation and din-
4fer of Phi Kappa Phi, national aca-
lemic honor society, which was held

'onesty and humility must be, includ-
}d as furnishing constructive train-
ng to the true investigator, for one

students sought to rush the local the-

Although these efforts failed in their
original end, they led local authori-
ties to realize that some change in the
situation must be arranged. As a re-
sult, a number of conferences were
held between Mayor Campbell for the,
city, President Little for the Univers-
