Makes Statement to Press That
Extra Session Would Not
Be Desirable.
WASHINGTON, May'22.-()-
President Hoover today definitely
closed the fioor against an extra
session of Congress.
"We cannot leegislate ourselves
out of a world economic depres-
sion," he said at his press confer-
ence. "We can and will work our-
selves out."
Saying he did not propose to call
an extra session, he added:
"I know of nothing that would;
so disturb the healing processes
now undoubtedly going on in the
economic situation."
Mr. Hoover, said he had recently,
received a number of petitions and*
memorials from various organiza-
tions, chiefly of a religious char-
acterdasking that he convene Con-
gress in special session for consid-
erationa of unemployment' relief.
The R e p u bl i c a n Independent
group in the Senate likewise has
called for a special meeting, but
Mr. Hoover said "a poll of the mem-
bers of Congress would show that
a large majority agree with me in
opposing an extra session,
Republican leaders in Congress
had opposed the extra session and
Democratic leaders have been con-
tent to leave the responsibility to
the president, who alone has the
power to convene one.
The presidential declaration left
no opening for any change of heart,
and Congressional leaders are mak-
ing no plans to assemble here be-
fore the regular meeting in Decem-

"The universities c a n employ
their powers to perpetuate the art
of the theatre, which has no power
to perpetuate itself" said Thomas
H. Iickinson at a lecture yester-
day afternoon in the Natural Sci-
ence auditorium.
The theatre can aid universities
and education can be of great value
to the stage, he continued. The in-
jection of pedagogical methods in
the theatre are a great hinderance
to it, however.
"If we are to have an endowed
theatre, the university is the place
where we should have it.. If a flex-
ible institution is to be formed in
(he university for the support of the
theatre, let it be for the support of
its traditions," he continued.
"The university can employ its
powers to create an audience," he
stated, "for it is impossible to have
a great theatre without 'developing
a good popular taste." The univer-
sities can replace the discipline of
the theatre for those of Latin, anc'
grammar, which w e r e. formerly
In conclusions, he advised that
"one can become master of the
theatre only when he' surrenders
to its spell, and for love."
Provisional Government Takes
First Step by Separating
Church and State.

Law's greatest need today is that
young men being trained for the
bar be taught to strive for ideals
of service instead of for monetary
success, so that the status of the
profession may again be raised to
its former leadership, General Na-
than William MacChesney, '02L,
vice president of the' American Bar
association, said last night at the
Coif initiation banquet.
"The leadership of the American
public welfare than ever in the
bar is today more necessary for the
history of the nation," he said, en-
larging on his topic, "The Bar and
Public Welfare."
Gives Reasons for Decline.
This influence for the public
good has declined not solely be-
cause of reasons peculiar to it alone,
but as part of a general tendency
in all of our society, he added.
This general tendency, General
MacChesney said, a longing for
commercial- success, has arisen from
the blind leadership accorded to
persons who have achieved it. He'
attempted to show that this was a
false ideal, that wealth is not the
sole measure of success, though he
admitted that attainment of it i-,
"one of the necessary ends of en-
deavor and one end of success."
The public leadership of the law-
yer may be evidenced in many
ways, General MacChesney said.
The first of these is the bar itself.:
Advises Legislative Interest.
"Here in the very beginning it
seems to me the young lawyer may
commence to take an interest .
in the problems for the betterment
of conditions of the bench and bar
where he practices." The various
committees of the local bar asso-
ciation, connection with the Amer-
ican Bar association, and the Amer-
ican Law Institute, offer opportun-
ity for the younger lawyer, he
pointed out.
Another field is that of legisla-
tion, MacChesney stated, especially

Conferences Between Litzinoff,
Statesmen May Establish'
Cordial Relations.
GENEVA, My 22.-(/P)--An im--
pression that the present week may
mark the beginning of more cordial
relations between the Soviet gov-
ernment and capitalistic states of
Europe gained strength in League
of Nations circles today after Max-
im Litzinoff, Russian commissar
for foreign affairs, had held a ser-
ies of brief meetings with other Eu-
ropean statesmen here.
This impression first was created;
by the amicable exchanges between
the Moscow government represen-
tative and other attending the ses-
sions of the Pan-European comnis-
sion, which ended yesterday.
Minister Lutzinoff, who yesterday
called on Aristide Briand, Fi'ench
foreign minister, paid a short visit
during the day to Arthur Hender-
son, head of the British foreign
office. At noon the Soviet leader
entertained Dr. Julius Curtis, Ger-
man foreign minister, and the Ger--
man delegates at luncheon.
This afternoon Litzinoff was vis-
ited by Dino Grandi, Italian for-
eign minister, and by August Zale-
ski, head of the Polish foreign de-
Poppies Will Be Sold
to Benefit Veterans
World war veterans will be bcne-

of 12,000 poppies by the local Amer-
ican Legion auxiliary on the streets
of Ann Arbor today.
Mayor 'H. Wirt Newkirk has en-
dorsed the campaign, which will be
aided by school children. Money re-
ceived will be used for the rehabil-
ation of wounded veterans, and
other welfare work.

,Michigan qualified 15 men yes-
tirday in the preliminaries of the
thirty-first annual Western Con-
ference track meet at Evanston,
placing second to the Iowa squad'
which qaulified 16 men mainly in
the weight events. Ohio State
ran a close third with 14 quali-
fiers and Illinois had 13 success-
ful entries.
By qualifying men in every
event entered, the Wolverines
are doped to win a second Big
Ten title in the finals today.
Eddie Tolan took first in both
the 100 and the 220 yesterday.
Trials were not held in the pole
vault and the two-mile run in
both of which Michigan is almost
certain to place. Ed Russell turn-
ed in the best time for the 440
in the trial heats and lookslike
a certain winner today.

Interfraternity Council B a n s
Loss of Social Privileges
for Low Scholarship.
Fraternities at the University of
North Dakota will not be deprived I
oI social privileges for low scholast-
ic averages through a new system
a d o p t e d by the Interfraternityl
Council there, according to storiesl
in "The Dakota Student," the uni- f
versiTy newspaper.
The 0,tion taken by this group,
which will go into effect as soon as
it has been approved, will punish
the individual members w h o s e
gfades are low, rather than the
entire group. If, however, any one
group falls below the University
average for two consecutive semes-
ters, the present regulation of loss
of social privileges will operate.
As long as a fraternity or soror-
ity keeps the general average,of its
active chapter above the University
average, none of the individual
members will be deprived of social
privileges. When the group's aver-
age falls, however, only the mem-
bers who are below that average
will be prevented from attending,
The former system has been in
force for two years. Lyle Johnson,
president of the Council, stated that
the matter had already been taken
up with the Dean, E. K. Smiley, and
that therefore no trouble was ex-
pected in securing the necessary
approval of faculty members.
