at the business office of the Uni-

has been definitely slowed up since
the suit against the University was

Will Not Be Ready in Fall.
According to a statement of
Prof. E. Blythe Stason, who is ont
the committee in charge of Hutch-
ins Hall, there is no possibility thatt
the new building will be ready fors
occupancy by the opening of the3
fall term in September.
The appropriations which havec
been released for the work to start
Monday are enough to provide work
for the next two months and will{
see the building completely parti-c
tionod ancd provided with rough
plumbin'g and lighting layouts. Al-
though. no radical changes have
been made, there have been somel
sim p lications of the design effect-
ud since the plans were first de-
cided upon.
Market Decline Slows Work.
Whether the structure wi be
ready for use by the second semes-
ter of next year is still a question.
John C. Christensen, comptroller1
,f the University said, "It is impos-;
sible to say when the building will
be inished because of the slump
in the present market values."
Unique of the features to be in-
-orporated, in the new building will
be the loud speakers which are be-
ing installed in the three largest'
lecture rooms of the building. Seats
in the lecture halls will be con-
structed in the form of regular of-
fice desks. Each individual student
will be provided with these desks
which will have drawers and com-
partments for the student's books
and papers.
Irish Cabinet's Reply Delayed;
England's Communication
Is Not Published.
LONDON, March 24.-(.P)-Grow-
ing tension between England and
Ireland has cast gloom, in political
circles at any rate, over the first
great public holiday of the year
which began tonight and for many
persons, will last until Tuesday
President de Valera's cabinet in
Dublin considered the position to-
day and its reply to the British
government may be published at
the end of the week. The text of
the British communication has not
been published, but it is asumed
the note follows the lines of yester-
day's statement in the House of
Commons by J. H. Thomas, secret-
ary for dominions, who affirmed
the mandatory nature of the oath
of allegiance to the Crown and pay-

both of which de Valera has said
he will abolish.

Commends Body for Uncovering
Election Irregularities
as Important Step.'
Describes It as Horrid Word;'
Worst Phase Found in Group
Privileges, He Says.
Gratification with the activities
of the Student Council in connec
tion with the fraudulent campus
election March 16 was expressed
yesterday by President Alexander
G. Ruthven in a letter to Edward J.
McCormick, '32, presideit of the
The letter, in which President
Ruthven commends McCormick for
the manner in which "the situation
that arose in the campus elections"
was handled, says in art:
Dislikes Use of 'Paternalism,.
"Paternasm has become a
horrid word. Too often it is
used as the antithesis of license.
Actually, the worst phase of
paternalism is represented by a
system which gives group priv-
ileges and makes individuals
responsible to a higher power
for acts of their group."
President Ruthven declares in
the letter that there is evidence of
"much loose thinking" in general
talk concerning student govern-
ment, and asserts that student
management of student affairs is
based on the same principles that
control government in general.
"It still remains true," he says,
"that the University belongs to so-
ciety, that laws and loyalty are ne-
cessary to maintain a just equilib-
rium between protection and liber-
ty, and that one cannot have priv-
ileges without assuming corres-
ponding responsibilities."
Says Members Are Responsible.
The responsibility of individual
members is pointed out by Presi-
dent Ruthven in the letter as being
an essential to the maintenance of
order in a group organization.
The president terms the action of
the Student Council in seeking out
and exposing the election irreg-
ularity "an important step in stud-
ent government." In this connec-
tion the letter says:
"In insisting that it can handle
student affairs and in demonstrat-
ing an ability to deal with its own
problems fearlessly, honestly, and
justly, the Student Council has
been responsible for an important
step in student government at the
University of Michigan."
Chinese Deny Reports
of Execution of Ken
NANKING, March 24.-(P)-Re-
ports that Col. Wang Ken, Chinese
graduate of the United States mili-
tary academy, had been executed
for treason were denied today by
Chinese military officials.
Col. Wang Ken in 1913 attended
the University. He was enrolled in
the College of Engineering, but left
at the end of the school year to
enter West Point, Robert K. Suez,
Spec., president of the Chinese club
on the campus, said last night.

Trometer Defeats Felker in Best
Bout of Evening to Wni-n
Middleweight Title.
By John W. Thomas
Gus Trometer successfully de-
fended his middleweight crown last
night in the All-Campus boxing
finals by coming from behind in
the third round with a late rally
to nose out H. W. Felker. More than.
750 fight fans crowded into the
special bleachers in the Intramural
building to see the nine fights.
Dave Golden received a close de-
cision over Eugene Wayland in the
lightweight division. In the first
round Wayland slid most of Gold-
en's shots over to his arms but
started to absorb them, in the sec-
Harvey Bauss was taken off the
card after Dr. Lyman made a thor-
ough examination of his strained
internal lateral cartilage. John Bol-
lock substituted and gave Jack
Kirby a close fight in the headline
bout of the evening, although Kirby
won the title.
Short-armed Andy Taloniek won
the welter-weight title from Lee
Shaw by hitting hard and often.
The rugged Kalonick had things his
own way until the third when Shaw
started a rally.
Harold Hirata beat Dave Gallup
by punishing him on the in-fight-
ing to win the bantamweight
title. Howard Bressler towered over
Bob Custer but lost to the veteran
in the third round as Custer rallied
and piled up points. The feather-
weight title was at stake.
Gus Glueck drew with Jack Yuen

Michigan will play host this aft-
eroon and tonight to the greatest
aggregation of collegiate swimming
stars that has ever been gathered
together in one place, when the
preliminary rounds of the ninth
annual swimming championships
of the National Collegiate Athletic
Association get under way in the
Intramural pool at 2:30 and 7:30
The meet, which will bring to-
gether 70 athletes from 21 differ-
ent universities, will see Matt
Mann's tankmen, victors in the na-
tional meet last year, defending
their title for the first time in their
own pool. An added interest has
been given to the meet because it
will also serve as the tryouts for
the Olympic games which will be
held at Los Angeles this summer.
Strong Teams Entered.
With many strong teams enter-
ed in this year's meet, Michigan's
chief competition will probably
come from the powerful tank team
from Stanford University, which
promises to press the Varsity na-
tators for the title. Princeton and
Northwestern have also entered
strong teams, while the remainder
of the entries from various col-
leges and universities promise to
put up game fights for the individ-
ital honors.
Among the individual tank stars
who will be battling for points in
this year's meet will be Walter
Spence of Rutgers, the world ree-
Prices for this afternoon's
j events will be 25 cents general

for tonight's events will be

The jolly "king of jazz" looks

But Whiteman has a theory

"Luck can put you on top of the

He thinks certain men and wo-
