Geology Head Has-Now Led Three
Meteorological Expeditions
To Greenland Coast
Prof. William H. Hobbs of the
geology department will not lead
in person a fourth meteorological'
expedition to Greenland next sum-
mer, he announced yesterday, but
will seek to interest some interna-
tional organization in carrying on
the weather station that he has
erected there on the peak of Mount
The present expedition, constitut-
ing the third University Greenland
expedition, will remain at Mt.
Evans and operate the station until
next July through finances ar-'
ranged by Professor Hobbs, but its
continuance after that date de-
pend on the initiative of somer
other organization. Because the
station is on Danish soil, the Unit-,
ed States Weather bureau will be
unable to take it over due to sov-
ereignty complications.

Paraguay's Failure To Satisfy Other
Country's Demands Causes
(fay AssociatedIPress)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 11.-While
steps were being taken by the
Pan-American congress on arbi-
tration and conciliation today to
patch up differences between Par-
aguay and Bolivia, the government
of the latter nation announced its
withdrawal from the gathering.
The Bolivian government, despite
its action, was prompted by a fail-
ure to receive from Paraguay any
satisfaction for what it regards as
the wrong it has received. Be-
cause ofthis, it was explained,
Bolivia could not permit any efforts'
at conciliation.
The new Bolivian note followed
closely one delivered last night in
which that country rejected the
general proposal of conciliation in
this dispute until it could have
received what it regards as some
moral satisfaction. Today's com-
mittee, however, was in direct re-
ply to the action of the arbitration
conference yesterday in appointing
a special committee to devise a
means of bringing the two disput-
ing countries together again. The
conference itself, meanwhile, only
functioned in committee form,
both the committees on arbitra-
tion and conciliation meeting for
organization purposes.
Dr. Rafael Mortinez Ortiz, fore-
ign minister of Cuba, was elected
chairman of the committee on ar-
bitration while Dr. Araujo Jorge
was elected vice-chairman.
The Bolivian minister said that
"in the face of the grave insult
that Bolivia has suffered from the
hands of Paraguay I have present-
ed a note to the president of the
International Conference on Arbi-
tration and Conciliation saying that
I will withdraw from taking part
in the deliberations of that assem-
bly, since, it is impossible for the
republic which I represent to dis-
cuss formulae of friendly settle-
ment between the two nations
while Paraguay shall refuse to red
pair its wrong.
"This decision of my govern-
ment will, however, be no obstacle
to a later adherence on the part of
Bolivia to whatever agreement the

,Michigan's varsity affirmative

ber of the varsity team the first
semester of last year. He is a

poraneous speaking contest last
year, and participated in the Black
New Testament oratorical contest.

The second Michigan speaker
will be Howard Simon, '30. Simon
was an alternate both semesters
last year. He is a member of Kappa

concluding speaker for Michigan.
Before coming to the University
he was a member of Western State
college debating team. Last year
he made the varsity team both
semesters. He is a member of

The team representing Indiana
and opposing the unreserved rati-
fication of the Kellogg treaty is

manuel H. Baugh, and Joseph V.
Prof. James K. Pollock of the
political science department will

W. Miller of the speech depart-
ment ofrWooster college of Ohio
will act as judge of the contest.
Pollock To Preside
Michigan's negative team will
leave this noon for Columbus, Ohio,
where they will engage the affir-
mative trio of Ohio State in a de-
bate tomorrow night. Carl G.
Brandt of the speech department
will accompany the team, which
is composed of Lawrence Hartwig,
'31, Paul J. Kern, ;29, and Stanley
Dimond, Grad.
The teams engaged in a final
practice debate before the mem-
bers of Speech 81 yesterday after-
noon. Prof. James M. O'Neill, head
of the speech departmient, Prof..
Gail E. Densmore, Carl Brandt, and
Ralph Harlan, all of the speech
faculty, were present at the final
Both varsity contests have been
scheduled under the new Big Ten

gan is a member. Chicago is the
only conference school, which is
not a member of this league. Each
school in the new organization will
- have two debates every semester,
meeting four different universities
