President-Elect Deluged By Notes
And Congratulatory Letters
From Host Of Admirers
(By Associated Press)
Nov. 15.-Herbert Hoover was im-
mersed in the work of completing
preparations for his good-will trip
to South America today and laid
it aside only to receive some of the
well wishers who called upon him.,
Among these was a delegation of
classmates of the President-elect
at Stanford university in 1895,
most of them now San Franciscoan
business men. The group, more 1
than a dozen strong, was headed by
former Judge George E. Crotchers
of San Francisco, and Thomas K.
Code, the first quarterback Stan-
ford university ever produced..
Another caller during the day was
Representative W. E. Hull of Peoria,
Ill., who called to convey his con-
gratulations. Hull traversed the
same route through South America
a year or ,so ago as will the Presi-
dent-elect, the Illinois Congress-
man having been a member of a
commission appointed to study and
aid in the promotion of good roads
on the southern continent.
In addition to discussing the 1
forthcoming South American trip,
Representative Hull talked to Mr.
Hoover for some time concerning
inland waterway developments,
especially 'the Great Lakes. to the
'Gulf waterway, and the proposed
St. Lawrence outlet from the Great
Lakes to the Atlantic.

complete satisfaction of his class
because of the nature of the course
trather than because of his own lack
of ability. It seems to me that only
his colleagues, who are familiar
with the type of work to be done
can really pass judgment upon any
instructor. If the proposed plan
does go through, often an instruc-
tor will be more interested in pre-
senting a good appearance, and,
less in presenting the part of the
work which is difficult to explain,
and so he will glide over the more
complex parts of the subject," Pro-
fessor Ford stated.
Professor Ford explain that he
had not fully considered the plan,
and that he was not familiar with
the details and latest developments
of the plan. "My objection," he
said "are formed from a superficial
observation of the plan, but I doubt
whether it would be possible to get
students on the committee who
would be able to judge their in-
structors. It would be a far better
plan to try to match the students
and the professors, to put students
with a certain background under
instructors who stress that phase
of the work."
"Personally," Professor Ford con-
tinued, "I have never sat in the
class room of one of my instruc-
tors. It is always possible to judge
the ability of a teacher from the
answers on the examinations."

Federal Investigation On Cause
Of Liner's Sinking
Is Planned
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Nov. 15.-The de-
tailed story of the sinking of the
Vestris was being written on the
official government records today
as more of the ships of the rescue
fleet 'came to the port with living
and dead.
Scattered families were reunited,
and survivors were found by joyous
relatives and friends. But in other
quarters only sorrow pevailed as 22
bodies were laid out for identifica-
tion or as officials shook their
heads negatively in answer to anxi-
ous queries of those seeking some
word of the unrepor-ted.
New Count Made
At the end of the day all the
rescue fleets had reached port or
were near it, and the latest count
of those who survived and who
were lost failed to improve the list
of 114 dead. Thirteen bodies were
brought to New York on the de-
stroyer Shaw. Meanwhile the bat-
tleship Wyoming plowed on toward
Hampton Roads with nine survi-
vors and the French tanker Myri-
am reached Brooklyn with 57 liv-
Setting aside questions as to
jurisdiction, the federal authorities
began a thorough investigation to-
day into the sinking of the liner.
After preliminary questioning of
witnesses this morning by Assist-
ant United States Attorneys George
J. Mintzer and Edward S. Silver,
the formal inquiry was scheduled
to open before United States Com-
missioner Francis A. O'Neill this
afternoon. Between fifty and sixty
witnesses had,, been subpoenaed for
the hearing today.
Jurisdiction Uncertain
Although the Vestris was of Bri-
tish registry and the jurisdiction of
the America authorities was uncer-
tain, it was indicated today that
the British authorities might con-
sent to have the entire inquiry
conducted here. Mr. Mintzer said
he had heard, unofficially, that the
British board of trade had cabled
the consul general here saying that
I if the inquiry was unbiased and ex-
1haustive the board would abide by it.

"The Second Man," by S. N.
Behrman, will be the second offer-
ing of the New York Theater Guild
repertory company when it shows
in Ann Arbor, Monday night, Nov.
19, at the Whitney theater.
The play was first presented by
the Theater Guild at its own the-
ater in New York in the spring of
last year, and shortly later was
produced in London. It is the
author's first play to have produc-
tion on Broadway. Another of his1
plays, however, "Meteor," has at-
tracted the attention of the Guild
producers and is scheduled for
presentation during the coming
season. Behrman is in his early
thirties and has already received
the commendations of many well
known critics.
The story of the play centers
around a wealthy widow in love
with a rather insuccessful novelist
who is witty, wise, and cynical. She
is described as a "Tennysonian
flapper with a Freudian. patter."
Her advantures are with a serious
minded, successful, and wealthy
scientist. The story, as it developes,
hints at tragedy in part of the ac-I
tion, but returns again to comedy.
The production, which will be
sent here was staged under the di-
rection of the well known Theater
Guild artist, Philip Moeller, with
costumes and settings by Raymond
Sovey. Included in the cast are
such favorites as Elizabeth Risdon,
Peg Entwistle, and Robert Keith.
"The Second Man" will be fol-
lowed by two othernTheaterbGuild
productions. The series runs over
a period of four weeks.

That information should be handed
in at the same time as the play is

Production of some of the plays
as laboratory experiments will take
place subsequent to the fifteenth of
January, but no definite arrange-
ments have been made in' that re-
gard as yet. Possible publicrpro-
duction will also be a feature of
the contest, but that would depend
entirely on the quality of the works
submitted. Further details con-
cerning the production of the plays
will be announced later.
Rowe States Purpose
The purposeof the contest, as
stated by Prof. Kenneth Rowe of
the department of rhetoric is "To
encourage native effort in the field
of dramatic writing at the Univer-
sity of Michigan; to help writers
through association with the thd
ater and production to the mastery
of the technique of the particular
form they are attempting; and
also to encourage experimentation,

PARIS, NOV. 15.-A prophecy
that the future of France and Eu-
rope would ,depend on negotiations
for revised reparation is in the
policy declaration Raymond Poin-
care gave out shortly before parli-
ament met today. Negotiations on
reparation will begin in December
when experts of the Allies and
Germany and with unofficial
American observers meet.
In the declaration, Poincare said
the conference would solve the
problem. He said that in the ex-
changes among the governments
no unresolvable difference of views
had developed.
Though it had been forecast the
cabinet declaration would contain
references to war debt as well as
reparation by Germany, the debt
question was not touched.
The declaration emphasizes the;
need for parliament' to note the
budget before New Year Day, and
"Legal stabilization of the cur-
rency closed a decisive phase in the
financial redressment; but nothing
is done so long as there remains
something yet to be done."
Confidence is expressed that
minor differences over details of the
budget can be ironed out. Poincare
indicated two articles relating tC

ders to France might be detacheC

ance, but expressed confidence
