Painleve's Withdrawal Clarifies
Situation; Deemed Fitting
by Senate.:
Premier's Cabinet May Remain
in Office Until New Chamber
Is Organized.I
PARIS, May 9.-(AP)-A new pre-
sident for France will be elected
tomorrow, and presumably he will
be Albert Lebrun, Aow president of
the Senate..
Simultaneously Premier Andre
Tardieuwill present the resignation
of his government with a request
that it be accepted immediately.
Unless unforseen political con-
tingencies should arise, M. Lebrun
will be formally placed in the Elysee
palace to succeed the assassinated
Paul Doumer. Lebrun's only oppon-

The most stubborn fire in New York's recent history wrecked the giant Cunard line pier on the Hudson
river causing more than $2,000,000 damage. One man was killed and about 300 firemen suffered injuries
while battling the blaze.

ent, Paul Painleve, former premier,
withdrew his candidacy late to-
night, leaving the field clear.
This was in line with the stigges-
tion from. the senate, where it was
held that in view of the sadness of
the occassion, it would be fitting
that one candidate be named on a
single ballot,
The president of France is elected
at a meeting of the senators and
deputies at Versailles.
It was intimated today that Pre-
mier Tardieu's cabinet would re-
main in office until a new Chamber
of Deputies is organized on June 1,
but the ministers' duties will be
perfunctory only.
This step of formal resignation,
and yet continuance in' office, is
somewhat unusual in French par-
liamentary history.

Dean Henry M. Bates of the Law
school has been chosen in a nation
wide selection as the recipient of
the California Bar association's
annual trust fund award which is
granted for the purpose of bringing
to the association's yearly meeting
some outstanding student of the
law to deliver the principal address.
In a letter received last week by
Dean Bates, J. W. Hawkins, bar
governor of California, says with
regard to Dean Bates proposed lec-
ture there, "the occasion would be
an outstanding one in the legal life
of California." The invitation to
receive this recognition, which Dean
Bates intends to accept, involves
an extended trip to California next
summer with all expenses paid and
the delivery of a paper on some
legal subject at the association's
annual meeting to be held Septem-
ber 29 to October 1, at San Diego.
Dean Roscoe Pound of the Harv-
ard Law school was the recipiest
of this recognition in 1930 and Hon.

Ayers, Passmore, and Messner
Delegated to Attend
Annual Parley.
The Michigan Student Christian
association is sending Jule Ayers,
'33, president for 1932-33, Lyle Pass-
more, '33, secretary, and Sherwood
Messner, '34, as delegates to the an-
nual state conference of Student
Christian associations.
The purpose of the conference, to
be held this year at Camp Ohiyesa
May 13 to 15, is to provide oppor-
tunity for informal discussion of
programs that have been carried
out this year and to formulate plans
for next year. I
Last year the University of Mich-
igan acted as host at the Univer-
sity Fresh Air camp at Patterson
lake. Ayers. who was in charge last
year, said that there were some
very'tangible results.
One of the most advantageous
results of this conference was the
arangement for exchange of pro-
fessors from the colleges represent-
ed to speak at discussion meetings.
Two men visited the Michigan cam-
pus this year, Professors S. M. Har-
rison and R. G. Hall of Albion.
At the conference at Ohiyesa the
Michigan S.C.A. is _planning to pre-I
sent a special report of the Big
Ten S.C.A. conference held in Chi-
cago in early April, which Ayers,
Kearns, and Passmore attended.

First official vote on the newly pro-
posed two week deferred pledging
plan will be held at a regular meet-
ing of the Council at 7:30 o'clock,
tomorrow night, in the Union.
The Council will elect the presi-
dent from two men that have been
nominated by the Judiciary Com-
mittee of the interfraternity Coun-
nil. The names of these men have
not been announced as yet as the

TT'oward Gould, '32, in this capacity
at the meeting.
To Vote on Deferred Rushing.
The new plan o deferred rush-
ing, presented at the last meeting
to the representatives of the gener-
al fraternities, will be voted upon
for the first inme. The constitu-
tion of the body provides that a
change of this nature be proposed
at one meeting and then passed in
two consecutive mpptings by at
least three-fifths of the total num-
ber of houses.
The proposal has been drawn up
by a committee appointed from the
Council by Howard T. Worden, '32,
president. The committee has been
co-operating with several promin-
ent alumni and faculty men in
composing the new system.
Propose Pledging in Third Week.
Economic strain would be lessen-
ed, it is believed, as the plan pro-
vides for deferred rushing .during
orientation week, followed by only
two weeks of intensive rushing. At
the beginning of the third week,
men will be pledge through the of-
fice of the dean of students in the
same manner that they were pledg-
ed under the present system.
If the plan is passed two times
by the Council, it will go to the Ju-
diciary committee for approval and
will then be sent to the Senate
Committee on Student Affairs.
It was announced at the last
meeting of the Council that a group
of alumni were at present work-
ing on a plan of deferred rushing
and committee men stated that they
believed that this group would co-
operate with them in obtaining the
approval of the plan.

A complete restatement of all
laws on contracts in the state of
Michigan has been assigned to
prof. Grover Grismore of the law
school, by the Cook law foundation,
t was learned last week.
This task involves reading almost
Al thg important cases on con-
tracts that have taken place in
Michigan, professor Grismore said.
The American Law Institute, it was
brought out, restates the law in all
its branches from time to time in
a way applicable to the country as
a whole. Professor Grismore's
work will involve taking this re-
3tatement of the Law Institute and
writing a similar one for the Mich-
igan courts.
There is no official authority'
which requires this work, nor does
the legislature recognize this rein-
terperation as being the official law,
however, the results of such work
are commonly used by lawyers as
authority and carry considerable
weight with judges.

That the "good faith of the pros-
ccution was doubtful," that evi-
dence was changed and witnesses
questionable, and that there was
a tendency to subordinate impa'r-
tial justice to political or economic
ends, were the major points brought
by Prof. Lowell J. Carr, sociology
department, in his lecture yester-
day reviewing the facts of the Tom
Mooney case, which resulted in the
conviction of Mooney for his part
in the Preparedness Day bombing
in San Francisco in 1916.
Professor Carr terms the case a
paradoxical one. The judge himself,
two federal commissions, the ten
surviving jurors, practically all the
witnesses except one who has been
discredited by his own letters, an
assistant to th¢ dmstrtAt npv anI

up charges, many of them proven
to be faked and to involve bribery,
to imprison Mooney for his labor
After the bombing, Mooney's de-
fense claims that Fickert failed to
make an exhaustive inquiry, that
he enlarged with crowbars the holes
made by the explosion and used
photographs of this as evidence,
and that a detective involved in the
case had sworn "to get" Mooney.
The prosecution denied these.'
The only witness produced by
the prosecution Prof. Car pointed
out, "who could swear that he had
seen Billings and Mooney actually
at Stewart and Market streets with
a suitcase just before the explosion
was John MacDonald. He is the on-

Justice Benjamin N. Cardoza was
described yesterday by Prof. Jesse
S. Reeves, of the political science
department, as being abreast of the
j ursprudential thought-of the world
to a degree unparralleled by any
other Supreme court justice in the
history of the United States. Pro-
fessor Reeves addressed an open
forum in the Union conducted un-
der the auspices of Hillel founda-
tion on "Cardoza-The Man and the
The chief difference between Car-
doza and Holmes, whom he has suc-
ceeded, lies, according to Profes-
sor Reeves, in the fact that the lat-
ter's approach to law was primar-
ily historical, while Cardoza's is

esting to know to what extent Jus-
tice Cardoza has been influenced by
the manner in which he acquired
his legal education, which was in-
formal, he never having attended
a law school.
In appointing Justice Cardoza, it
was pointed out, President Hoover
canvassed Southwestern and North-
western opinion f or suggestions,
fearing that , those districts, being
unrepresented on the Supreme court
bench, might feel slighted if an-
other Eastern appointment were
made. The fact that the almost
universal opinion of these regions
was in favor of Cardoza was declar-
ed by Professor Reeves, "certainly
