Delegates Of Michigan Clubs In Large
Cities Will Attend Annual
Meeting At Union
Holding their "Centennial Send-off
Dinner" tonight at the Union, more
than 500 alumni, representing every
section of the country, will gather to
consider the program which the Uni-
versity will pursue during the next
ten years up to the centennial in
1937. President Clarence Cook Little
and E. J. Ottoway will be among the
speakers, and it is expected that the
President will outline the program for
the Alumni University which he and a
number of prominent alumni have
worked out.
It is planned to hold a great Cen-
tennial celebration at the 100th anni-
versary of the founding ofthe Uni-
versity in 10 years, and during this
time the President is anxious to or-
ganize a program of constructive
benefit to both the alumni and the
student body.
Expect New Proposals
It is for this purpose that he will
outline tonight the idea whereby men
and women graduate into the Alumni
University rather than out of the Uni-
versity itself, and some concrete pro-
posals to this end are expected to be
made by the President.
The newly organized local alumni
club has made arrangements for the
dinner as far as the technical details
are concerned, and will be host to the
crowd which will attend the affair.
The dinner will be in a sense for all
Michigan alumni, but the number
which the Union ball room can handle
at a banquet is limited, and as a result
no more than 500 graduates of the
University will be able to attend. The
tickets for the affair have been in
the hands of officers of the Alumni
association, who have attempted to
distribute them with as much regard
for geographical scope as possible,
though by far the largest delegation
will come from Detroit for the event,
headed by Regent James Murfin of
that city.
Dr. Oscar Eberbach, '08, president
of the Ann Arbor University of Michi-
gan club, and Nathan S. Potter, din-
ner chairman, have managed the de-
tail of the work of arranging the gi-
gantic banquet, and Paul Wagner,
'16E, has served as treasurer of the
dinner committee. President Little,
while not being the sole speaker of
the program, will deliver the princi-
pal address and will divulge for the
first time the plan which he in con-
junction with prominent alumni and
members of the faculty have worked
out for the expansion of the Alumni
association into the Alumni Univer-
sity. Certain other phases of the
Alumni University program will be
taken up by other seakers, all of
whom will give only very brief out-
line of the phases which they will

cinnati, Milwaukee, Toledo, and a

to prominent alumni were sent out by
the Alumni association for the affair.
More than 200 alumni from Detroit
have signified their intention of beingC
present and small cities and remote
sections of the country will be rep-
resented by group representatives.;
The dinner tonight will be strictly anj
affair for the men who have graduat-
ed, and the program to be outlined
will be one which President Little in-
tends for the men graduates to carryI
out. A similar dinner will probably
be held in the near future for the
women, at which time a similar pro-
gram will be outlined by the Pres-
These dinners will furnish the prin-
cipal feature of the first year's pro-
gram of the Alumni University and
an attempt will be made to establish
som'e definite program which can
be carried out through the ten years
Swhich will benefit the University..
What definite action will be taken
by the alumni at this meeting, or
whether any definite action will be
taken, is not known nor included in
the plans. The principal object of
the meeting is merely to place be-
fore the alumni some of the major
problems of the University and to in-
spire their. cooperation in the solving
of these problems.
May Discuss DJorntories
It is possible that the question of
men's dormtories will be brought up
by the President at the meeting to-
night, though the definite outline of
his speech is now known. The organ-
ization of the Alumni University how-

and President Little for more than
two years, will be undertaken, and

Law, Which Was Defeated, Demands
Life Imprisonment After
Fourth Felony
Upholding the negative of the prop-
osition "Resolved, that the principles
of the Baumes law of New York
be enacted into law in the other
states" because first they are not a
solution to the crime problem, sec-
ond they have not solved the crime
situation into New York state, and
third because they will not prove a
remedy for the needs of the other
states, Northwestern's debate team
defeated the Michigan affirmative in
a Central league debate last night in
Hill auditorium.
Samuel Givens, Julian Lambert and
John Doesburg composed the North-
western team which was awarded the
decision by Prof. L. H. Norvelle, of
the department of speech of the Uni-
versity of Indiana. Jar A. Andeer,
'29, Orm'and J. Drake, Spec. Ed. and
William C. Bishop, '28, were the
Michigan representatives.
Traces Crime History'
Andeer opened the debate by trac-
ing the history of crime and describ-
ing the steps taken by New York to
meet the situation. He then spoke
of the Baumes laws which were the
result of the appointment of a New
York State Crime commission.

This section of the laws provides
that the penalty for conviction for
a fourth felony shall be life impris-
onment and m-akes the sentence
mandatory upon the judge. It was
his belief that there must be some-
thing wrong with the man who will
willfully commit a fourth felony
when the penalty for that offense is
life imprisonment.
Drake devoted his speech to the
statement of statistics to prove that
the Baumes laws has actually worked
in practice and for that reason should
be adopted.
Opposes Principle
The second negative speaker. Lam-
bert, objected to the Baumes laws be-
cause they were based upon the "fal-
lacious principle," that severity is a
deterrent to crime. He further de-
clared that the Baumes laws were too
In concluding the affirmative case,
Biship declared, "It isn't the degree{

The construction speeches were
brought to a close by Doesburg, the
Northwestern third speaker, who of-
fered another group of statistics to
prove that the Baumes laws had not
succeeded in the accomplishment of
a marked- lessening of crime in New
A luncheon in honor of the North-
western team was served at the Union
immediately after the debate.
Prof. Robert T. Crane, of the polit-
ical science department, left yesterday
for New York city where he will at-
tend a meeting of the Social Science
Research council today. He will re-.
turn to Ann Arbor early next week.
Prof. Joseph R. Hayden, also of the
political science department, will at-
tend a meeting of the American Coun-
cil of Learned Societies in Washington,
D.C., ]lext Friday, Jan. 27. He will
also attend the general meeting of the'
Social Science council in Washington
on Saturday, Jan. 28.

The debate was very closely con-
tested with the Michigan team gain-
ing the advantage in a group of very
exceptional refutation speeches. The
fact that the Michigan negative con-
fined their case to but one of the:
Baumes laws also was a determining
factor in the decision.
The Ohio State team opened the de-
bate by supporting the entire group of
Baumes laws. The negative team
agreed with them in all except one
instance which was that of the habit-
ual criminal provision. Upon this
single provision they built their en-
tire case in objection.
Thomas, in opening the case for
Ohio State declared the Baumes laws
had been designed to alleviate the
slowness of procedure and that they
had succeeded in quickly bringing
the criminal to the bar of justice.
Savage Open Case
Savage, in opening the case for
Michigan, agreed to all of the affirma-
tive case with the exception of the
fourth offense clause. He declared
that the negative was in opposition
to this section because it was too
rigid and based on principles that
are intrinsically wrong.
Moyer devoted his speech to show-
ing that the Baumes laws were made
unworkable by this particular sec-
tion which is the principle of the
entire code. "It can't, be enforced
because juries refuse to convict and
because attorneys and judges evade
the law by getting the defendant to
plead guilty to some misdemeanor.
A new system of handhing crim-
inals which would avoid all of the
evils that the negative had pointed
out in Baunres laws was explained
by Franseth in the third negative
speech. He suggested a flexible sys
tem where in thme judge could pro-
vide a penalty to fit the crime.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 20.-The ad-
ministration's policy toward Nicar-
agua was vigorously defended today
in the Senate by a Democratic stal-
wart, Bruce of Maryland.
Repling to a demand of Senator
Dill, of Washington, also a Democrat,
that American marines be withdrawn
from the Central American republic
the Marylander declared that the only
people in this country who oppose the
administration's course were "ex-
treme pacificsts and radicals."
This aroused Senator Dill who ac-
cused Bruce of classifying him as a
radical, but the latter entered a dis-
claimer explaining what he had said
was that as far as he knew "every
radical in this country" was opposed
to the government policy.
