The President, However, Opposes
Time Clauses Which Chairman
Hale Insists On
(By Associatcd Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 15.-The
Senate turned today to the other
side of the cruiser-treaty contro-
versy when advocates of the bill for
the construction of 16 new warships
took the offense in an attempt to
win for their measure approval'
.similar to that given the Kellogg
treaty to renounce war.
Waiting, however, for the oppor-
tunity to make a determined fight
against the construction of the
proposed 15 cruisers and oneair-
craft carrier was a formidable
group of Senators who hope to de-
feat the bill, or at least materially
reduce the number of cruisers to
be authorized.
Democrat Aids Administration
Equally determined to keep the
measure intact was Chairman Hale,
of the Senate naval affairs com-
mittee, who was given support in
the opening debate today by a
Democrat, Senator Swanson of
Virginia, who aided the administra-
tion in its fight for ratification of
the Kellogg pact.
Construction of the new ships
has the active support of President
Coolidge who repeatedly has given
expressions to a desire for the
authorization of additional war-
craft. The President, however, hasf

PARIS, Jan. 15.-A slight Im-
provement in the condition of
Marshal Ferdinand Foch was.re-
ported by his doctors as they
emerged from the early evening
consultation over the stricken gen-
eralissimo of the Allied army. The
4 fact that they issued no formal
communique and that none of the
doctors 'remained over night with
the patient combined to produce
some feeling of encouragement
among the Marshal's friends.
{ There was hope and joy exubr
Txbr-ac at Foch's offices in the In-
valides building where General
Weygand slapped Major L. Hopital
on the back and explained:
"That is much better,. the great

Conference Football Officials
Dissatisfied With Present
.$75 Fee

TO DEMAND AN INCREASE 7
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, Jan. 15.-Revolt over
the failure to give increased fees
has broken out among many lead-
ing football officials of the West-
ern Conference, John L. Griffith,
commissioner of athletics, admit- ,
ted today. The officials, dissatis-
fied with the regular $75 fee, are
filling schedules for outside games,R
drawing fees ranging from $100 to
$150 for each contest.
The regular sum in the Big Ten'
is now $75, whilet the east, theI
south and on the Pacific coast, the
stndard fee for all important
games is $100, with many of the
best officials hitting as high as
$200 and $250 for some games. In
case the minimum fee of $100 is
paid in the east, an additional $50
is added if the official must make
an overnight trip to arrive at the
scene of the game.
Dissatisfied officials declare they
are not on a strike nor antagonistic
to the Western Conference, but are
filling their schedules with games
in which they will be better paid.
They see no reason, they say, why
the Conference remunerates its
officials with fees similar to those
paid in other parts of the country.
With huge stadiums completed in
every BigeTen school and crowds
averaging better than 30,000 in the
Conference, the officials believe
the slight increase they demand is
too trivial to be an issue with the
directors of athletics. It wascre-
vealed their demands were con-
sidered a-t the December meeting'
of the directors but was turned
down. Walter H. Eckersall, famous'
University of Chicago star and for
22 years an afficial on Western
Conference gridirons, declared he
would not join the movement but
would remain loyal to the Big Ten.
"'The Conference made me and
I'm going to stick," Eckersall said,
"Why, I grew up with it. The only
reason I officiate is for the love of
the game, not for the size of the
fee. If the officials get, the ideal
they are bigger than the sport, they,
should get that impression out of
their heads."

IN OFFICIALS' AK

Are

Hayes Yeager of the speech de-
partment of the University of Il-
linois acted as a single expert
judge of the contest.
Michigan was represented by
Nadine Stewart, '30, Dora Vanden
Berg, '30, and Ollie Backus, '29Ed.
Indiana's women's trio was com-
posed of Margaret Williams, Avis
Goyer, and Agnes Haas.
Affirmative At Ohio
Michigan's affirmative debating
trio left yesterday for Columbus,
Ohio, where they will engage the
negative team of Ohio State In a
debate on this same proposition
tonight in the chapel of University
hall This trio is composed of
Helen McComb, '30, Lois Webb,
'29Ed, and Virginia Houghton, '30
They were accompanied to Colum-
bus by Floyd K. Reilly, instructor
in the speech department.
Resolved, that social fraternities
and sororities in state universities
should be abolished, was the ques-
ton which the two teams -consid-
ered; Indiana upholding the , af-
firmative and Michigan the nega-
tive.
Indiana Takes Three Points
The Indiana trio attacked so-
cial fraternities at state univer-
sities 'for three reasons. First,
they argued that there was no ne-
cessity for such organizations.
Secondly, they maintained that
such social groups were both detri-
mental to the students, both with-
in and also to the university. Social
fraternities and sororities cost more
to live in, they create an artificial
social distinction based on wealth,
and foster snobbishness, in the
opinion of the Indiana team. Two
members of the team were mem-
bers of sororities.
Thirdly, it was contended by In-
diana that a dormitory system
would secure all the advantages
of social fraternities without their
disadvantages.
Michigan, in defnading frater-
nities and sororities, admitted
that such organizations were not
perfect, but that their defects
were not inherent and could be
eliminated. Furthermore the neg-
ative advocated the extension of
such social groups so that all who
wished might be members, and
the erection of dormitories for
those students who did not desire
to join fraternities.
Visitors Fail To Answer
Indiana failed to answer suc-
cessfully the -argument of the
Michiganwomen that the defects
which Indiana pointed out in so-
cial fraternities were- inherent in
human nature, and that the
dormitories would not eliminate
these defects in human nature.
"Uniting in social fraternities and
sororities is the simple and natu-
ral expression of two social in-
stincts, that of gregariousness and
the desire for play," argued the
negative. Indiana failed to meet
this argument.
Florence A. Pollock, '8L, acted
as chairman of the debate last
night. After the contest both
teams attended a banquet at the
Union, at which the judge and
the coaches of the two teams were
also present.
