Tardicu Government Overthrow
Brings Naval Conference
to a Standstill.
Indications Point That France
Will be Without Cabinet
For Several Days.
(By Assuciated Press)
PARIS, France, Feb. 18:-The
solution of the cabinet crisis caused
by the overthrow of the Tardieu
government has made not a single
step forward ap the close of the
Second day, which was devoted to
President Domergue's consultations
with the most prominent statesmen
of the Republic.
The indications were that France
would be without a government
several days or even a week, and
the London naval conference was
at a standstill due to the fact that
France will not be officially repre-
sented again until her home affairs
Are straightened out.
Poincare Also Called.
President Doumergue conferred
today with the two men about
whomn cabinet speculation is hot-
test, former President Poincare
end former Premier Briande. The
President said tonight he had not
called Briande to form a new cab-
inet although Briande was certain
to forma part of the new govern-
Political circles believe that the
President had not called Poincare
with a view of asking him, to head
government but merely was seek-
ing his advice.j
Three alternatives faced te
President tonight: A Left govern-
ient headed by Camille Chum-
te'ps, with Briand as Minister of
Foreign. Affairs; "a lrhind .yrid
government, with the majority re-
uruited from moderates of the left.
right and center; .a Tardieu-Poin-
care cabinet, leaning toward the
right, withal moderate.
Tardieu Improves.
Former Premier. Tardieu was re-
ported improved tonight, although
coughing severely from the irrita-
tions of the grippe.
The effect of the cabinet crisis
on the London conference has giv-
ra 'an intematinal aspect to
France's domestic, political difllcul-
ties. It is in this light that most
' the newspapers comment on it.
In an outspoken editorial Le
Temps this afternoon warned its
readers that "formidable pressure"
was now being exercised on France
in London to reduce her naval ton-
inge claim.
It affirms that part of the Eng-
lish press is conducting a campaign
calculated to give a false impres-
il of the French position, which
it says is "a not over-scrupulous
manoever of intimidation," hitend-
ed to permit "some nations" 'to
keep their naval supremacy.
The newspaper even goes so far
as to hint that the London confer-
ence may have to be adjourned if
the rencli cabinet criis lasts very
ong. flowever, it expresses the
hope that this will be unnecessary.

"Contributions to the History of

the series.
It contains monographs by Prof.

is divided into two parts, the first of
which is: "Robert of Chester's Late

Second semester freshmen who
wish to try out for any of the stul-
lent publications will be given their
irst opportunity in work of this

Each of these publications will
handle its tryouts so that they will
be able to learn the greatest ps-
sible amount about the work on the
magazines and papers in the short-
est time. Plans have beC made by
The Daily to take care of 100 or
more tryouts, who will be divided

Offers Variety of Work.
The Daily business and editorial
staffs offer many possibilit'es to
gain newspaper experience. In the
field of writing the freshman has
the opportunity to write news stor-
ies, features, sports, bumnor, and
critical reviews of plays,. concerts,
and books. Here he secures a first
hand knowledge of the inner op-
eration of the newspaper from ga-
thering the news to printing the

learn advertising writing and
makeup, accounting; circulation
management, publication, and gen-
eral business experience. Work is
distributed as evenly as posi:ib

ments so that the freshmen can ob
tain a more thorough knowledge
of the business as a whole.
in order to be eligible for any of
the student publications the fresh-
men must have an average of one
grade better than C and no grades
below C. The publications offer
first year men opportunities to
make contacts and take part i
activities which is impossible in the

Advancement in each publication
is entirely made by the merit sys-
tein, advancement coming as tehe

menbers of The Daily, who were

tions at the. end of their freshmen
year, compete for night editorships.
