Expect Determined Oppositio
to Forthcoming Protocol
Revised by Hoover.
Borah, Johnson, Moses, Leader
of Foreign Relations Body,
Disapprove Proposal.
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 16- Battl
lines are being drawn for the im-
pending Senate fight over adher-
ence to the World Court.
Although a year may elapse be-
fore President Hoover submits the
revised protocol, designed to meel
the objections of the Senate as ex-
pressed in its famous Fifth Reser-
vation, there is already much dis-
cussion of the new plan, and the
opposition, regardless of its size
numerically, promises to be of ar
extremely determined nature.
The three ranking Republicar
members of the Foreign Relations
Committee, Chairman William E
Borah, Hiram Johnson, of Cali-
fornia, and George H. Moses, of
New Hampshire, disapprove of the
new proposal and the administra-
tion is hopeful that the forthcom-
ing Republican reorganization of
the Senate may result in increased
committe strength for friends of
the project.
Withdrawal Provided.
The Senate's Fifth Reservation
on the basis of which American
entry was rejected by the nations
of the Court, would have provided
that the tribunal entertain no re-
quests for advisory opinions on
questions in which the United
States might have or claim an in-
terest without the consent of the
Washington Government.
Under the protocol, America
could withdraw from the Court
withdraw from the Court without
prejudice, in the event that re-
quests for advisory opinions should
be pressed by other nations over
the objection of the United States.
Former Senator George Wharton
Pepper of Pennsylvania, who was
a member of the Foreign Relations
committee when entry to the
World Court was last before the
Senate has addressed a letter to
Chairman Borah staunchly oppos-
ing the new scheme.
Change Insufficient.
Although, he approved of adher-
ence with reservations three years
ago, he does not see that the de-
mands of the Fifth Reservation
have been satisfactorily met in the
revised protocol.
He said in his letter that he
came to the conclusion that Amer-
ican entry was inevitable and
originally laid aside his preference
for complete separation of the
court from the League of Nations
in the interest of effective reser-
vations to protect American inter-
He declared the new protocol un-
satisfactory and asserted he could
see no reason for modification of
the Senate' stand.

Church Head States Satisfaction
With Recent Happy Solution
of Roman Question.'
(By Associated Press)
VATICAN CITY, Dec. 16.-Six
new cardinals were created by Pope
Pius XI today in a secret consistory.
In his allocution read to the assem-
bled college of cardinals at the be-
ginning of the ceremony of crea-
tion he stressed the recent happy
solution of the "Roman question."
He emphasized that the Lateran
pacts "recognized publicly the civil
princeship of the Roman pontiff,
and safeguard our dignity and
Three of the new cardinals are 1
non-Italians and three Italians,
bringing the sacred college up to a
strength of 63 out of possible 70.
After.today's ceremony the so-
called "foreign cardinals" were in a
majority of those their numbersI
being 33 against the Italians' 30.
This is a disparity that has not
existed since the end of the 14th

1 That a policy of "intense con-
structive effort" will prove not
merely the cure for the recent per-
.iod of industrial depression, but the
beginning of an era of incresed
prosperity and progress, is the
, opinion of Prof. A. E. White, of the
engineering research departmentI
of the University, who has just
returned from an extended busi-
ness trip to New York city aiV
Jother parts of the East, which
brought him into close contact
with some of the most prominent
business and technical men in the.
_ "My opinion is that a period of
i quiessence of several months' du-
ration may follow the recent de-
pression," said Professor White,
"but that it will in turn give place
to one of the most remarkable eras
of industrial development and
progress which the country has;
ever experienced.'
Predictions Based on Facts.
"This prediction is based uponE
something more authoritative thany
my own optimism and my faith in
the industrial and financial sound-.
ness of the country-namely the!
increased budgets which leading
industrial interests have already
allotted for future developments
and the appropriations made by
the different states for public im-
Professor White is convinced that!
this increased industrial activity
and expansion will be accompanied
by a similar movement in the field
of applied scientific research, and,
here again his conviction is based
upon what he considers incontes-
table evidences.
Need Scientific Aid
"An ever increasing number of
American manufacturers are be-
coming conscious that they can
not maintain a forward-looking I
policy without that aid from sci-
ence which can be furnished in

secured information from nearly
800 American manufacturers, of
which number only four expressed
themselves negatively in regard tot
the value of a research program
in their business.
"In the future, manufacturers
will find themselves confronted by
the necessity not only of finding
new markets for old products but
new products for markets which
|have already been established and
progress in such directions can be
made only with the help of scienti-
fic investigation. Through this
co-operation industry will be able
to offer new products to the public
and to lower the manufacturing
cost of articles already being mer-
chandized, without the necessity of
lowering their quality.
Research More Extended.
"That such an increase in re-
search activities is an event which
may be expected with confidence
has been strongly impressed upon
me by the fact that, in spite of the
recent financial depression, there
has been an increase in the work
of the department of engineering
reesarch of the University, a
seemingly conclusive proof of fu-
ture increase.
"4ut I do not believe," Profes-
sor White concluded, "that these
better times can be brought simply
through expressions of confidence
and optimistic forecasts. It will
mean, both for industry and for
scientific research, a literal follow-
ing of President Hoover's advice
to take off our coats and ~eo to
work. If both science and indcis-
try will do that, I believe that this
era of increased prosperity and
progress is inevitable."
