Action Made Public By President
Little At Alumni Banquet
In Washington
Twelve thousand dollars, the an-
inta1 appropriation for the next
tw o years for the creation of sev-
eral alumni fellowships which was
made by the Board of Regents at
its October meeting as the first.
step towards the proposed Alumni
xniversty, was formally announced
tor the first time last night at the
Natonal Alumni dinner at the
Mgayflower hotel in Washington
D.C., by President Clarence Cook
Little, originator of the alumni col-
lege Idea at Michigan.
More than two hundred alumni
0rom all over the country were
present at the dinner which was
auflange by the University of
Micigan club of Washington for
all those alumni who plan to at-
teod he Michigan-Navy football
sane this afternoon in Baltimore.
scott- Turner, president of the
Washington club introduced Regent
4mes E. Murfin, '96L, the toast-
iter of the affair who in turn
initroduced the speakers, including
E T.;Ottoway, president of the
University of Michigan Alumni
taseiation, who spoke for the al-
umn4i association. Coach Fielding

the other principal speakers.

'Essentially, the Alumni univer-
sity plan aims to create co-opera-
tion betwen the University and her
graduates in two ways. First there
are benefits to be received by the
University in the way of alumni
support, gifts, help, advice; then, I
there is also the desire to bring the
University more actively to the al-
umni. The ten-year program which
is already well under way with the
building of the first dormitories
this year and the organization of
the Alumni association promise to
fulfill the first part of the univer-
slty plan.
,Although no definite action or
program has been arranged to take
advantage of the recent Board ac-
tion, It is understood that Presi- :
dent Little and the officers of the
Alumni association intend to select
several alumni who as the Michi-
gan Alumnus of this week explains
it, "will act as liaison officers be-
tween the graduates who are seek-
ing to establish contacts with the
University and the Faculty." Their
duties will consist mainly of en-
couraging the continuation of
these fellowships on an intellectual
basis so as to give alumni an oppor-
tunity to revive their waning in-'
spiration and desire for knowledge

after they have left school.
The question of alumni -relations
is playing a big part in modern
education and is becoming one of
the biggest problems of the univer-
sity administration of today. A
meeting of representatives of the
American Alumni council and the
American Association for Adult Ed-
ucation held at Vassar col-
lege recently, discussed the ques-
tion of whether there was any ob-
ligation on the part of the Univer-
sity to continue educating its stu-
dents after they have left school.
The meeting at Vassar decided
that the university very definitely
owed something to its graduates
and should continue the education-
al process as far as possible. This
action served as impetus to the
Michigan plan.

WASHINGTON,,Nov. 9.-Alanson
B. Houghton announced today fol-
lowing a conference with President
Coolidge that he will sail next
Wednesday to resume his post as
ambassador to Great Britain prob-
bly for the remainder of the pres-
ent administration.
Mr. Houghton said that his re-
signation, which was made effec-

was still in Mr. Coolidge's hands,
but that it had been agreed, fol-
lowing his defeat for United States
Senator from New York, that he
return to represent this country at
the court of St. James.
Shortly after Mr. Houghton's
nomination as Republican candi-
date for senator from New York,
he tendered his resignation, Mr.
Coolidge acknowledged receipt of
Mr. Houghton's communication
and in the same letter expressed
regrets for the loss of the latter's
services thereby creating the im-
pression that he had accepted the

Towns Are Destroyed
By Streams of Hot Lava

CATANIA, Sicily, Nov. 9-Another
Sicilian villege has fallen to the
all-devouring lava.which continues
to pour from Mount Etna. Nunzi-
ata tonight was undergoing the
same fate as its neighbor village,
Maxcali, which already was com-
pletely burned and buried under
the advancing flow.
Only a part of Nunziata had'been
destroyed, but it had been com-
pletely evacuated by its inhabitants
t who feared the same fate that
overtook three men of Maxcali
whose escape was cut off, while
they slept, by the advancing lava

active tonight than for some hours.
The principal fiery stream that it
had disgored had reached a point
of only 60 meters from the rail-;
way station of Maxcali and was
proceeding inexorably onward at
a rate of 50 meters an hour. The
northern stream of lava had joined
this larger and central one. The
third and southernmost stream was
within 100 feet of the railway
bridge at Giarre and advancing at
the rate of 32 feet a hour.
The spirits of the Sicilians, who
have dwelt for generations in the
shadows cast by the giant who per-I
iodically has aroused itself to real)
destruction, are undaunted. The in-
habitants of . Maxcali have been
comforted by the government's
promise to rebuild their town.

Takes Long Walks And rides With
Wife Over Scenes Of Their
College Day Romance
(By Associated Press)
Nov. 9.-Passing into the third day
of rest from the strain of contest,
Herbert Hoover went to what is be-
coming a regular schedule for the
period that will precede his plunge
into national affairs as the certi-
fied chief of the party in power.
After an early breakfast, with
the next First Lady of the Land,
the president-elect went with her
for the favorite walk over the
sun-dripped hills, accompanied by
an escort of secret service men. Re-
tracing their steps over the paths
that have known them in their
college days, he turned to his desk
and she to an automobile ride.
Gives Time To Work
Unable to give himself complete-
ly over to relaxation even in this
period of rest, Hoover spent con-
siderable time in digging into the
pile of correspondence that con-
tinues to accumulate. He worked
more leisurely than usual, however,
in his broad, comfortable study,
with his desk facing a window be-
neath which unfolds a view of the
red-top roofs of Stanford Univer-
sity, the valley below and in the
distance SaneFrancisco Bay and
the rolling foothills of the coast
range. The president-elect seldom
leaves his home, except Jfor his
early morning walk and the after-
noon ride. This takes him and
Mrs. Hoover down the valley where,
turning away from the regular
traffic into byroads, they climb into
the mountains over a narrow,
winding automobile road that
twists precariously in and out
around the shoulder of the hills.
Now and then the road seems to
curve into the terrain itself and
ahead looms in its stead a perfect
view of the peaceful countryside
Cabinet Not Settled
Although the president-elect has
given little thought to the identity
of the various members of his offi-
cial family March 4, there had al-
ready arisen considerable specula-
tion concerning its makeup. , The
name of J. R. Howard of Clemens,
Iowa, was thrust today into the list
of those Hoover was said to be con-
sidering for secretary of agricul-
Howard, long a friend of the
president-elect, is president of the
farm bureau, and was associated
with Hoover in his work during the
World war. Two - others, Dante
Pierce, Des Moines farm paper
publisher, and Senator Arthur
Capper of Kansas, also have been
mentioned for the post, but the
probabilities are that it will be
many weeks before the executiv
elect come to any definite deter-
mination upon the subject.

The editors of The Daily call
to the attention of their readers
two things. The first of these
is that the sentiment expressed
on page one of The Daily of
Wednesday morning of this week
is by no means the sentiment
of The Daily staff. The error
is to be regretted.
The second is that several of
the communications received in
the last two days have been un-
available for publication in the
Campus Opinion column because
of a ruling of the Board in Con-
trol of Student Publications
which states that all communi-
cations must be signed by the
writer. The attention of the
writer is called tothe fact that
anonymous letters cannot be
published in fairness to The

Repertory Company To Give Series
Of Plays At Whitney, Starting
Next Wednesday
Opening next Wednesday night,
Nov. 14, with Bernard Shaw's "The
Doctor's Dilemma," the Repertory
company of the New York Theater
Guild will offer a run of four plays
on successive Mondays and Wed-
nesdays at the Whitney theater.
"The Doctor's Dilemna" chosen
for the opening performances is an
amusing satire on the medical pro-
fession, with typical Shavian char-
acterization saving the dramatic
values, and sharp travesties on the
innoculators, the vivisectionists, and
the fashionable quacks.
In it, moreover, the great Irish
dramatist, with his delicacy of sen-
timent, has accomplished the seem-
ingly impossible-made high com-
edy of death - killed his hero and
given the audience grace to smile.
Finished by Shaw in 1906, the
play has had various successful
runs in London, Cologne, Berlin,
New York, and on the road in this
country. The Theater Guild sent
the production, which will be seen
in Ann Arbor, on tour after a long
engagement in New York, and in-
cluded in the repertory company
many actors who have had parts
in the Guild's leading successes.
Among them are Elizabeth Risdon,
Peg Entwistle, Robert Keith, Bea-
trice Hendrick, P. J. Kelly, and
Warburton Gamble.
"The Doctor's Dilemma" will be
followed Monday night, Nov. 19, by
"The Second Man," another high
comedy, "Ned McCobb's Daughter,"
on Wednesday night, Nov. 28, a
comedy with a serious, underlying
theme, and "John Ferguson" on
Monday night, Dec. 3, a genre tra-
gedy of terrific power.
