MONTGOMERY, Ala., March 21.
-Red Cross officials in Washington
estimated today that 26,000- per-
sons had been made homeless by
floods in south Alabama and
northern Florida, and reports of
additional scores of refugees were
received at Maxwell Field, govern-
ment flying field, here. The fliers
had been taking a leading part in
the relief work.
The additional reports came
from towns along the Alabama
River, which is far out of its banks.
Major W. R. Weaver, commnand-
ant of the army post, said planes
flew over the section around Selma,
dropping provisions and blankets
to the marooned families.

"School Discipline," Mars Again"
And "A Rhetoric Laboratory"
' Arc Topics Discussed
Dean James B. Edmonson of the
School of Education, Prof. Amos R.
Morris of the rhetoric department,
and Prof. Ralph H. Curtiss of the
astronomy department last night
delivered the three talks on the
22nd Michigan Night radio pro-
gram of the current series. The
program was put on the air from
the new Morris hall studio through
WJR, the "Good Will Station" of
the Richards Oakland company,
Dean Edmonson, speaking on
"The Old Versus The New in School
Discipline," told of the changes .
which have taken place in the va-
rious schools of today, stressing 'the
newer idea of cooperation, help-
fulness, and industry as opposed to
the older idea of school discipline-
that which emphasized quiet, or-
der, and submissiveness.
The second talk of the program
given by Professor Morris was en-
titled "What is a Rhetoric Labora-
tory?" Professor Morris has been
interested in the study of language
arts by analysis of human speech
sounds and told of efforts being
made by which an adequate stand-
ard may be set upon which to base
our estimates of literary values.
Professor' Curtiss, who is direc-
tor of the University observatory
spoke on "Mars Again" telling at
length of the characteristics of
this planet and what scientists oh
the earth know about that heaven-
ly body, or what they have reason
to belive is constantly taking place
on it.
As for the musical portion of the
program, the Union dance orches-
tra under the management of Paul
Omer and Don Loomis and directed
by' Bill Suthers, presented several
of their liveliest numbers during1
the interim between the speeches.
Waldo Abbot, director of the sta-
tion, states that he is at present
working on a number of special
programs for the future.

Mail Orders Now Being Accepted
For "In The Next Room"



Mail orders are now being receiv-
ed at Mimes theater for the next,
week's performances of "In The
Next Room", the popular mysteryl
thriller by Eleanor Robson Belmont
and Harriet Ford. The play will be
put on for nightly performances
(except Wednesday night) begin-
ning next Monday and at a special
Saturday matinee.
Eleven persons are included in the
cast which has been rehearsing forl
several weeks. Included in that
number are many who are well
known to followers of campus dra-
matics, including Richard C. Kur-
vink, '29, George W. Priehs, '30,
Eugenie Chapel, '32, Josephine Ran-
kin, '30, David B. Hempstead,. '31,
Win. R. Day, Jr., '30L., and Freder-
ick K. Kleene, '31.
The play enjoyed a long run on
Broadway within recent seasons
and was one of the most successful
of the mystery plays which have
been produced. The action con-
cerns the mistaken sale of an orig-
inal antique cabinet in place of a
copy which had been ordered.
Numerous unaccounted for mys-
teries in connection with the cab-
inet complicate the action and
everything becomes shrouded in
mystery until the final disclosure
of the guilty one, whose identity is
disclosed as a quick surprise to the

between the acts.

library, as a University lecturer

With freshmen on campus hold-
ing the first class dance of their
college career and dignified Law
seniors holding their traditional
class dance, the campus will cele-
brace a gala night tonight when
the Frosh Frolic will be held in the
Union ballroom and the Lawyers
Crease dance will be held in the
lounge of. the Lawyers' club. Final
arrangements for both dances were
completed early in the week, and
all will be in readiness for the two
dances tonight.
Few Frolic Tickets Remain
While the lawyeis are boasting a
sellout for their dance, the Fresh-
man committee still has a very
few tickets on hand, the com-
mittee in charge announced late
last night, and -these will be on
sale at the Union and at a booth
in the lobby of University hall to-
day. Contrary to expectations, the
ticket sale for the Frolic will close
promptly at 5 o'clock this after-
noon at all the booths, it was said
yesterday, as University rules re-
quire such a measure. "We want
to correct any idea that tickets to
the Frolic will be sold at the door
tonight," Kenneth McCallum, '32,
general chairman announced. "The
sale will close promptly at 5 o'clock'
and it will be impossible to pur-
chase a ticket thereafter."
The dance at the Union tonight
will commence atr-9:30-oclock and,
will close at 2 o'clock, with the
grand march scheduled for around
11 o'clock. McCallum will lead the
march with Miss Iorothy Fendley
of Detroit, as his partner. The
music will be played by Gerald
Marks and his Oriole Terrace or-
chestra of Detroit, the band leav-
ing the famous Detroit cafe to play
this dance especially. It is a Col-
l umbia recording orchestra. Favors

Lawyers Engage Jack McKay
Decorations for the dance will
start early this morning under the
'care of the Goodhew Floral com-
pany of this city. A new motif is
promised, with the floral decora-
tions grouped in bunches instead
of in the usual style of being spread
around the ballroom. 0
The Crease dance will be featur-
ed by the music 'of Jack McKay's
Country Club orchestra from De-
troit, a band which made a big
!hit here recently at another party,
and by the publication of the
Crease paper with scandals about
the great and near-great of the
Isenior law class and other sections.
The Crease dance is one of the
most famous of class dances at
Michigan, deriving its name sever-
al years ago when the Lawyers
changed to wearing of evening
! clothes instead of the usual out-
fits. The committee in charge of
this party was headed by Donovan

March 21.--The

world mourned with France today
at the bier of Marshal Foch.
King and president, general and
minister of state, came to pay him
tribute while thousands of the,
more humble crowded into the
courtyard of his house to inscribe
their names in the register of
those who came to do him honor.
Representing Belgium which was
the first to feel the wounds of the
Great War, came King Albert in
person to pay tribute to the man
under whom hie had served in Flan-
ders as head of the Belgium army
in the last days of 1918. General
John J. Pershing, commander-in-
chief of the American Expedition-
ary Forces, also came. President
poumergue, 4Premier,,,roincare and,
former Premier Clemenceau, - "the
father of victory," were there, too.
To the home where the general-
isiimo of the mighty allied hosts of
1918 died at sunset Wednesday an
unending succession of distinguish-
ed personages, messengers and
messages began to arrive before
dawn lnd, continued throughout
the day.
The high and lowly of France
mingled in the marshal's courtyard
with those of other races whose
kin served in the World war under
the supreme command of the
French warrior who finished his
final campaign Wednesday night.;
While an unending procession of
generals, ambassadors, ministers of
state and distinguished -figures and
several thousand humbler citizens
came to the Foch home, the
French chamber of deputies voted
to give the marshal' a national
funeral, the sixth in the history of
It was announced that the fun-
eral would be held Tuesday, prob-
ably from the famous Cathedral
of Notre Dame, although definite
plans awaited reading of the mar-
shal's will. The body will lie in
state under the Arc de Triomphe
for 24 hours previously.

LONDON, March 21.-War clouds

Abolition Of Jury Is Debate Topic
In 11ll Auditorium
Last Night
Debating the proposition, Re-
solved that a judge or 'a board of
judges should be substituted for
the jury in all trials throughout
the United States, the Michigan
affirmative team defeated t h e
Northwestern negative last night
in Hill auditorium. Prof. A. Craig
Baird of the department of speech
of the University of Iowa was the
single expert judge.
John E. Webster, '30P., Fenelon
Boesche, 1, and Nathan Levy, '31,
speaking in the order named, com-
posed the Michigan team. They
were opposed by Stanford Clinton,
Stuart E. White, and Isadore Katz
of Northwestern.
Webster Begins Debate
Webster, opening the discussion,
pointed out that among the de-
fects in the present jury system
are the facts that intelligent peo-
ple are nearly always excused from
jury service and that the average
jurors cannot comprehend the
rules of court procedure and testi-
mony. "Remedies," he added, "have
been suggested for these evils but
have never been placed In effect."
Continuing the affirmative dis-
cussion, Boesche declared, "The
administration of justice in any
area fits the demands of that area.
Although we insist upon experts in
every other phase of our social,
political, and economic life, we are
content to accept the decisions of
inexperienced laymen in the ad-
ministration of justice."
"Juries are chosen from people
who form the lowest strata of so-
ciety," Levy stated in giving what
was probably the best speech of
the evening. "The jury comes, acts,
and merges back into society," he
argued. "It is the only American
governmental institution which is
not responsible for its acts. The
judge, on the other hand, con-
tinues from day to day and must
accept responsibility for his deci-
Clinton Claims Soundness
Clinton was the opening negative
speaker. "The jury system is in-
herently sound," he continued, "be-
cause it applies a social concept of
justice, and is the only effective
means of eliminating prejudice and
vice." It is the only safeguard the
,people have against oppressive leg-
islation, he believes.
"The judge system which the
affirmative are advocating is in-
herently unsound," White declared
in continuing the negative case,
"because it is a cast system, be-
cause it is easier to corrupt two or
three judges than it is to corrupt
a jury of 12 men, and because the
judge system puts men on the
bench whose minds are in a rut of
legal technicalities."
Katz, the third negative speaker,
gave the concluding arguments .of
the constructive speeches. "The
judge is impractical," he avered.
"It takes out of our administration
of justice the right of the every day
man on the street to be judged by
his peers.
Norville Opens Discussion
"The function of the jury is to
act as a check upon the arbitrary
acts of a judge," he continued,
"The trend is not away from the
jury but toward it. In the past 100
years, every European country ex-
cept Holland has adopted the jury
