Important and interesting cases
will feature the next session of the
Supreme Court of the University,
when Judge Clarence Cook Little
takes his place on the bench to
hear the pleas on the docket kept
by clerk of court Waldo Abbot.
That these two officers would ap-
pear in court, was definitely settled
yesterday and announced following
a meeting of Sigma Delta Chi,
sponsors of the seventh annual
Grid-iron banquet.
The jury, which has already been
impanelled, will be escorted into
the court room of the Union at ex-
actly 6:30 o'clock on the night of
April 3, by two uniformed police-
men. Witnesses and the audience
will then be allowed to. take their
rcats around the banquet. tables,
while representatives of the press
will take their places immediately
following. The attorneys will as-
sume their positions before the
court after which Judge Lttle wil
.take -his place at a table. near the
front of the room until after din-
ner.
Court Will Follow Dinner.
The prison band, under the direc-
tion of Robert E. Carson, willthen
be lead .to the Cage at the end of
the room where they will play dur-
ing the meal which willprecede thej
sessions. After dinner Court will
be called. to order and the trial of
the loquacious lubIir"twr will pro-
ceed.
Attorneys for the' defense have
been working on their briefs for
some time, while the prosecutors
have nearly completed gathering
evidence against those who: have
been accused. According to the
policy of the court, the names of
the suspects will, not be. announced
until after the trial. Differing from
regular court proceedings, the jury
will hold an open discussion, at
which time the verdict will be de-
cided.
First Passes Are Mailed
Court bailiffs have already mailed
the first large consignment of pas-
ses to those who have answered the
subpoenas. The others will be sent
out this week as rapidly as possible.
It Is understood that not more than
400 persons can be accomodated in
the court room, and that for that
reason only the first 400 answers to j
be received will be accepted.
According to Alexander K. Gage,
Jr., '29, one of the bailiffs incharge
of the distribution of passes, all
checks must be in the oMfce of the
Marshall not later than March 30,
at which time specifications for the
remodeling of the court room are to
be turned over to the contractors.
He stated further, that at the rate
answers were being filed with him,
the entire quota would probably be
filled 'before the end of this week.
Checks should be payable to Sigma
Delta Chi, and should be mailed to

915 Oakland avenue.
In order to prevent the audience,
from ,tearing the court roapmn to
shreds in order to secure souven-
iers, plans are being made by court
officers to procure enough to. pass
around to all who attend the trial.1

PRICES FALL AS MONEY SQUEEZE
INVADES GOTHAM STOCK EXCHANGE

(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, March 25.-A
"money squeeze" in which the rates
on call loans were advanced from
9 to 14 per cent, the highest in nine
years, today brought about tne
most drastic reaction of the year
on the New York Stock Exchange
in which prices were slashed right
and left as speculators and invest-
ors scrambled to get out.
So great was the volume or sell-
ing that the ticker ran for 58 min-
utes after the closing gong had
sounded. The day's sales of 5,860,-
210shares have only been exceeded
on two other days this year-March
1 and March 15, on both of which
occasions the price movement was
upward.
Hundreds of millions of dollars in
quoted values were washed away
by the flood of selling orders which
poured into the market today from
all sections of the country and
European, Latin American and far
eastern capitals. Final quotations
disclosed a long list of net declines
ranging from $1 to $20 a share.
Two other stocks, 4dams Express
and Equitable Trust, in which the
turnover was small, lost $29.25 and
$53 a share, respectively. On the
New York curb market, Ford Mo-
tors of Canada dropped $40 a
share, and scores of others $1 to
$10 a share.. Similar recessions
took place in other securities mar-
kets.

M[[N01HSSINKING OF SHIP
IN MEXICAN GULF1
DEXTER HAD RIGHT TO FIRE
ON IMALONE ACCORDING
TO TREASURY HEAD
BRITISH DESIRE REPORT
British And Canadian Governments
Prepared To Protest Action,
Washington Infor d
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, March 25.-The
sinking of the British schooner Im-
alone in the Gulf of Mexico was
defended today by Secretary Mel-1
lon who, as the supervising head of
the coast guard service, held that1
the patrol boat Dexter had been
within its rights in pursuing the
suspected rum runner and firing
upon the craft after its refusal to
obey a summons to heave to.
At the same time the British
and Canadian governments made1
known through their diplomaticl
representatives in Washington that
they were prepared to protest I
against the action should the cir-
cumstances warrant.
The first official reports of the
incident were forwarded to the
state department late today by the
treasury department. A full report
on the case has been asked by Sir
Esme Howard, who' called at the!
state department Saturday.
The Canadian government has
become involved in the case since
it is believed that the vessel was ofl
Canadian registry. The coast guard
report of the incident will be!
studied by the state department,
however, before being forwarded to
the British or Canadian represen-
tatives.1
Mellon Defends Action 1
While Secretary Mellon has de-
fended the action of the Dexter int
sinking the vessel, which resulted
in the death of one British mem-
ber of the crew of the Imalone,
both the British and Canadian
viewpoints are to the effect that
the incident will be a serious one
if the current newspaper reports on
the matter are correct. 1
The coast guard report submitted
to the state department said there
was a continuous pursuit of the
Imalone from within the 12-mile
imaginary, line off the Louisiana
coast by the Walcott until the ves-
sel was sunk by the Dexter some1
200 miles off the coast.
The coast guard 'report contend-1
ed that this pursuit was justified
under international law.
British Disagree
The known British and Canadian
positions on the international doe-
trine of pursuit at sea are that this
pursuit must begin within the
three-mile limit of the coast-the
only territorial waters limit rec-
ognized by international law.
The coast guard report cited a
case in connection with a con-
tinuous pursuit of the AmerIcan
ship North, which was condemnedl
by the British Columbia admiralty
court in 1925, the decision being up-1
held by the Supreme Court of Can-
ada. A number of legal experts,+
however, feel that the oases are not
analagous as the chase after the
North was begun within three miles.
The coast guard's report said the
Imnalone was "within four leagues
(apprximately 13 miles) of our
coast," while the captain of the
ship has said that the vessel was
nearly 15 miles off the coast;

(My Associatqd Press)
About 72 hours of intermittent
fighting for Mazatlan, most impor-
tant strategic point in the west
coast campaign hi Mexico, has left
the city still in the hands of its
federal garrison wvith 58 known
-rebel dead on the field and three
wounded. Resumption of sniping
prevented clearing the battlefield
of additional dead and wounded.
A message from General Carrillo,
garrison commander, timed 8
o'clock yesterday morning,, brought
first definite word of the casualties
to Mexico City. Federal losses were
put at three dead and seven wound-
ed. Sixteen civilians were wounded.
Federal reinforcements were less
than 40 miles away and the gov-
ernment was confident the insur-
gents would be beaten off.
Ambassador Morrow yesterday
telephoned Secretary of State Kel-

still could be in the hands of the
federals and that fighting was over
for the present.

(By Associated Press)
NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 25.-
With a deat'h toll of 38 from spring
flods in southeastern Kentucky and
northeastern Tennessee, and prop-
erty damage running into the mil-
lions, plans for the relief for the
destitute went forward today.
Tennessee's general assembly late
today appropriated $20,000 for flood
relief, and Governor Flem D. Samp-
son of Kentucky issued a procla-
mation calling upon Kentuckians
to contribute liberally of money and
clothing and other supplies to their
local Red Cross chapters.
Legislature Votes
While the Tennessee legislators
were voting they could see the
Cumberland River from the capital
as it steadily increased its over-
flow of the low lying sections of
the city. A crest of 50 feet is ex-
pected by tomorrow, which will
flood thickly settled sections,
Already houses and factories near
the river are under water. With
the exception of the Cumberland
and Tennessee, all other Tennessee
streams were falling.

Scouts and their scoutmaster who
were drowned when a week-end

Red Cross Active
Red Cross workers were active
today caring for the destitute, and
physicians and sanitary engineers
assisted the homeless, taking meas-
ures to prevent and combat dis-
ease as several thousand persons
were given aid until they could re-
occupy their homes. Meanwhile
search was continued for addition-
al bodies which might 'swell the
death toll.
Washington headquarters of the
American Red Cross today informed
its local chapters in the stricken
section that they would be in direct
charge of subscriptions for relief
and that the national personnel of
the organization already was en-
gaged in providing relief which
would be distributed through local
chapters in Kentucky.
Kentucky Loss Great
Pulaski county, Kentucky, offi-
cials set the damage there at
$300.,000. The Cumberland River,
which made 55 families homeless
at Burnside and Sinking Creek and
drove 20 families from their homes
at Somerset, was reported return-
ing to its banks today. Another
$100,000 damage was reported in
Cumberland county, a $100,000 each
in Breathitt and Floyde counties
and $200,000 in Pike county. Coun-
ties bordering on the flooded areas
also were reported to have suffered
heavily.
Professor C. H. Cooley
