Commending the graduating stu-

"deep interest in the welfare of
Michigan," for their real pride in
this institution," and for their
"keen desire to improve conditions
that affect the student body," Pres-
ident Alexander G. Ruthven deliv-'
ered the principal address at the

More than 2,000 seniors, represent-

Ruthven Sees Growing Spirit.
"I have this year, with pardon-
able and sympathetic amusement,
frequently listened to expressions of]
regret from you, that college spirit ,
has decreased. This has interested
me because in expressing this re-1
gret you have actually been exhibit-I
Ing an increase in that spirit. Too
often do we confuse college spirit
with college customs. The relation
between spirit and customs is sim-
ilar to the relation that exists be-1
tween manners and morals. AsI
manners may reflect morals, so i
customs may indicate spirit, but it
in no way follows that the relation-
ship is a consequential one," Pres-
ident Ruthven stated.
"College spirit," he continued,
"is something deeper and more far
reaching than the college customs1
whlich we usually dignify by the
term traditions. You have shown
the best type of college spirit by
your concern.thattthe good name of
Michigan be protected and by your
attempts to be of service to your
fellow students. It is a sincere be- I
lief in the value 'of higher educa-
tion, a faith in the efforts of the1
faculty to improve the University,,
and a loyalty to the institution ap-I
proaching family pride, which to-L
gether constitute real college
spirit," President Ruthven stated.
Student Leaders Speak.
Led by the Varsity band and the
student leaders: Ernest C. Reif,
president of the Student council,i
and Stanton W. Todd, president ofi
the senior literary class, the grad-I

WASHINGTON, May 13. - The
opinion that under certain condi-
tions liquor can be made in the
house without violating the prohi-
bition law was expressed today be-
fore the Senate lobby committee
by F. Scott McBride, general su-
perintendent of the Anti-Saloon
The statement was made in re-
sponse to questions by Chairman
Caraway of the committee con-
cerning a speech delivered in the
House by Representative Fort, Re-
publican, New Jersey. McBride
quoted Fort as saying that "the!
law permitted the making of liquor
in the home."
"You don't agree with his inter-'
a p ion Caraway asked.
"We think that was a very good
speech that he made, as a whole"
the witness replied. "That is his
interpretation. I think probably
he is right."
"Do you think that ought to be
the law?" Caraway demanded. j
"The law is not 100 per cent per-
fect yet," McBride said.
The examination of McBride took
this tack when Caraway questioned
him about a resolution recently
adopted 'by the New Jersey Anti-
Saloon, league. The drys had said
that they were going to do their

The witness said that final action
by the organization had been defer-
red to give the candidates a rea-
sonable time to make statements as
to their prohibition views.
"I think every candidate, wet or

before he is endorsed for or

At the conclusion of today's hear-
ings, the committee adjourned un-
til next Tuesday when the examin-
ation of McBride will be resumed.

Chris Cagle Resigns
as West Point Cadet
(By Associated Press))
WEST POINT, N. Y., May 13. -
Christian Keener (Red) Cagle, re-
signed abruptly as a cadet today
from the United States Military
Academy by official request follow-
ing the revelation that he was
married nearly two years ago in
direct violation of the cadet regu-
lations, subsequently gaining All-
American gridiron honors and dis-
tinction as one of the greatest
Army halfbacks of all time.
Much as today's developments
shocked official West Point and
those who hold Army regulations
in high respect, drama continued
to surround the exciting career of
Cagle. From a hospital bed he is
recovering from an operation for
the removal of tonsils, the Army
star handed in his resignation af-
ter being advised that press dis-
patches from New Orleans had dis-
closed the details of his marriage
on Aug. 25, 1928, to Marian Mis-
ford Haile at Gretna, La., by a
justice of the peace.

WASHINGTON, May 13.-Secre-
tary Stimson insisted under sharp
examination by the Senate com-
mittee on foreign relations today,
that the London naval treaty
brought parity between the Ameri-
can and British fleets in all cate-
gories of ships.
Set upon by the committee mem-
bers on his second day's appear-
ance, the Secretary got quick aid
from Senator Robinson, Democrat,
Arkansas, one of the American
delegations to London, who came
into the discussion with a firm de-
fense of the basis of parity adopted
by the conferees.
Senator Robinson, Republican,
Indiana, provoked the Arkansan to
action, with inquiries las to tl'e
reason for America abandoning
five of the fifteen heavy cruisers
authorized by Congress last year.
Secretary Stimson told the com-
mittee that the 'substanti'al com-
bat power of the two fleets" was
the basis for determining parity.
The Secretary concluded his ex-
temporaneous statement to ' the
committee with a recounting of the
saving and reduction accomplished
under the treaty. He was asked to
return tomorrow to subject him-
self to the questioning by the com-
mittee members which he has wel-
Fleet Reductions Made.
He said the treaty accomplished
a reduction in the total fleet of this
country of 15,000 tons, and in thej
total fleets of Aieica, reat Brit
ai and Japan of 430,000 tons. He
said the treaty "caps the pr ram
outlined to the 1922 Washington
conference, outlined by Mr. Hughes
and goes him 13,000 tons better."
Replying to Chairman Borah of
the committee, Mr. Stimson ex-
plained the "escalatory clause" as
he termed it, or the "escape clause"
as Senator Borah described it. This
is the clause permitting the signa-
tory nations to go beyond the treaty
under certain conditions.
Mr. Stimson spoke most highly
of Japan and praised the attitude of
her delegation and of that gover
gvr-ment in permitting the United
States to build past her in cruisers
while asking Japan at the same
time to stand still.

The victors, defending the harder

strong arguments, the most impor-
