Find 'Yale' Latches
on Harvard's Doors
Banished Mark Turns Up
Again in Randolph Hall.
The trademark "Yale," banned
from Harvard university door-
locks ever since the modern lat-
ches were invented, has been
found on 70 doors in Randolph
hall, dormitory on the Harvard
campus. The failure to delete
the name of the lock from the
mechanism has been attributed
to an oversight on the padt of
officials, the second in a period:
of years.
Although all lock' in the other
dormitories are of the same
make, a special process has been
used to omit the name of the
manufacturer, a lineal descend-
ant of Elihu Yale, so as not to
confuse bewildered students re-

Tardieu, Americai Delegate Fail
to Agree on Disarmament,
Security Views.
United States Attitude Outlined
in Confeence With
GENEVA, April 21.--(/IP)-Secre-
tary Stimson and Premier Andre
Tardieu today failed to reach an
agreement on the crucial problems
of disarmament and security or
reconcile the French and American
The Secretary of State plunged
into the disarmament issue in a
series of conversations with the
leading statesmen of the world, now
assembled i Geneva. They in-
elude, in addition to M. Tardieu,
Prime Miister Ramsay MacDonald
and Chancellor Heinrich Bruening
Explained American Scheme.
Mr. Stimson side-stepped the in-
ternational financial problem up-
permost in the minds of the assem-
bled statesmen, although the Ger-
man chancellor attempted to ini-
tiate a discussion of that subject.
In official quarters, the Stimson-
Tardieu conversation was summar-
ized thus:
The secretary explained the Amer-
ican scheme of "quantitative" arms
reduction, which entails three steps.
1-To determine the armed
strength of each nation's needs for
internal police work, using the cri-
teria employed in determining the
limitations imposed on the Central
Powers in the peace treaties.
U. S. Opposes Security Pact.
2-To determine the armed
strength each nation needs for de-
fense, on the basis of each country's
particular situation, considering its
colonial possessions and other such
3-The total would represent the
approximate level of possible limi-
tat ion.
This was advaned, Mr. Stimnson
explained, merely as a suggestion,
and the United States would be
glad to consider all schemes that
might be presented.
Asked what the American atti-
tude was toward a European se-
curity pact, the secretary replied
that the United States would not
participate in any such agrement.

Prosecutor Seeks Ruling to Use
Paper Torn by Mrs. Massie
as Evidence.
HONOLULU, April 21.-(P)-Be-
hind the scenes in the trial .of four
persons accused of lynching Joseph
Kahahawai, the prosecution today
fought the defense contention that
Lieut. Thomas H. Massie was insane
when he wielded the pistol that
killed the native.
Court sessions were postponed un-
til Saturday at the request of Pro-
secutor John C. Kelley to permit
two newly arrived California alien-
ists to prepare evideqce.
One is Dr. Joseph Catton, San
Francisco alienist who contributed
to the testimony that brought a
conviction and death sentence to
Mrs. Winne Ruth Judd for the mur-
der of two women in Pheonix, Ariz.
New Alienist Arrives.
The other prosecution alienist is
Dr. Paul Bowers, of Los Angeles,
who made no secret of his mission
upon arrival today.
At least one of the territory alien-
ists made arrangements to examine
Lieut. Massie, who had testified
his mind went blank when he stood
before Kahahawai with a pistol
and heard the native confess parti-
cipating in an attack on his wife,
Mrs. Thalia Massie.
The prosecutor also sought a rul-
ing from Judge Charles S. Davis to
permit the trial record to show that
a paper which Mrs. Massie destroy-
ed in a fit of anger on the witness
stand was permissible as evidence.
The paper supposedly told of a rift
between herself and her husband
a few months before the attack. It
was in the form of answer to a psy-
chopathic examination at the Uni-
versity of Hawaii.
Darrow Smiles at Outburst.
Clarenee Darrow, chief defense
attotrney, chuckled today kat the
memory of Mrs. Massie's spectacu-
lar outburst on the stand, which
he called the most dramatic in his
long career as a criminal lawer.
Kelley also grinnedat the fit of
temper he exhibited in matching
Mrs. Massie's fury. He said he had
neglected to have a copy of the
paper made..
Previous to her outburst, Mrs.
Massie had testified about hearing
rumors involving herself and her
Husband after five accussed men,
including Kahahawai had b e e n
tried for the assault and the jury
'ad disagreed.

batch of 14 teams in the Interfra-

Why Be Moral?'
Students to Ask
at Union Parley
"Why be moral?, Can I arrive at
a philosophy through pure science?
To what values sall I be loyal?"
these and more than twenty other
questions relating to philosophy
and the deeper values of life will
be attacked by a parley of students
and faculty members meeting at
2:30 and 7:30 o'clock tomorrow on
the second floor of the Union.
A general committee of more
than a hundred students is be-
hind the plan which is being spon-
sored by a smaller committee con-
sisting of Ivan Williamson, '32,
William Kearns, '32, Cile Miller,
'33, Winifred Root, '32, and George
Rubenstein, '33. Prof John L.
Brumm of the department of jour-
nalism will act as faculty chairman
and will preside over the meetings.
The plan of procedure according
to the announcement is to have the
students and any faculty members
who care to attend sit on chairs
placed in a large circle about the
room. In the center of this circle
will be placed a large table at
which a selected group of fifteen
faculty members and the presiding
officer will be seated.
Five minute talks by three facul-
ty members and one student 'will
provide an explanation ofwhat the
parley is to deal with and after this
the whole session will be devoted to
open discussion with the students
attempting in general to put the
faculty members "on the carpet"
with regard to their life philosophy
and their conceptions of the mean-
ing of success. A sample of the
kind of topics which will come un-
der discussion maybeathered
from the questions which the com-
mittee has composed in advance of
the meeting. One of these asks:
Is any philosophy of life of value

Justices of Supreme Bench Are
Analyzed by Law School
Head at Forum.
"A supreme court justice is con-
cerned primarily with the consti-
tutionality of a decision, and see-
. ondarily with the wisdom of it,'
said Dean Henry M. Bates of the
law school in a discussion of "Liber-
alizing Influence of the Supreme
Court" yesterday afternoon in Na-
tural Science auditorium at ar
S. C. A. forum,
Dean Bates further expressed the
opinion that willingness to taye ac-
count of the point of view 6f the
liberal minds and attitudes of
others was the greatest liberalizing
influence in a court.
Speaking of individual justices
Dean B a, t e s .continued~, "Justice
Holmes has given much philosophy
of life in his decisions. He has the
most accurate conception of judi-
cial duty of any of the judges. Car-
dozo is experienced in the field of
property and commercial law more
than he is inhconstitutional lines.

judge as, clearly as does Holmes.',
