organization, who called upon the
visiting teachers to use their influ-

Sororities Are Struggling For
Existence, Dean Lloyd States

Whether sororities in the "luxury
class" can survive the present crisis
was questioned by Dean Alice C.
Lloyd in a conference of deans of
women held yesterday in conjunction
with the Schoolmasters' Club con-
"Without a financial crisis, the
sororities on this particular campus
would have faced a serious crisis in
our increased dormitory facilities,"
Dean Lloyd said. "With the added
difficulties of a financial upheaval
they are struggling for existence. The
picture is a challenging one, and in
many ways it is a good thing that
it is so. It was time for sororities to
inspect themselves with a view to
evaluating their right to be on a
university campus.
"In the past," Dean Lloyd ex-
plained, "sororities provided dignified
lodgings, unusual opportunities for
friendship, comradeship, and a cer-
tain stability in social life. For this
service universities and colleges
should be grateful.
"Now, however," she continued, "a
different emphasis has developed.

Dormitories have become serious
rivals in the housing situation, and
the time has come, I think, for the
sororities to redefine their purpose.
They cannot now justify their ex-
istence entirely along the old lines
and must develop and move forward
to meet the new situation if they are
to continue as valuable adjuncts to
the life of a campus.
"To stress their value as house
clubs is to bring them into direct
competition with the dormitories,
which in many instances offer bet-
ter living conditions. To emphasize
the social life within their walls is
to bringvery forcibly toulight the
fact that the social situation has
changed from the earlier intimate
group life within the house to the
present-day social activities outside
the house.
"There are certain problems con-
nected with sororities on every cam-
pus," Dean Lloyd said. "The rival-
ries, the tragic disappointment of the
fairly large group that is examined
during rushing and found wanting,

Plea For Gradual Disuse
Of Monroe Doctrie Is

Arguments against the Monroe
Doctrine and a broad plea that it
be "allowed to fall into disuse" were
voicedl yesterday in Hill Auditorium
at the tenth annual Honors..Convo-
cation by Dr. Stephen P.. ;luggan,
director of the Institute of Interna-
tional Education. Dr. Diggan be-
lieves that the doctrine will never be
publicly renounced, but hoies It may
in effect gradually be done away
The convocation address was an
appeal t "remove any .optacle. to

American nations and the United
A return to the interpretation
which was originally intended by
President Monroe was advocated for
the Monroe Doctrine, and Dr. Dug-
gan deprecated the advanced inter-
pretations which have been attached
to it by President Theodore Roose-
velt and Secretary of State Hughes.
War Changed Relations
The World War caused the inter-
national position of the Latin-Amer-
ican nations to be changed, Dr. Dug-
gan said. Before the War they were
not *considered as important; after
the War they were invited to join
the League of Nations on an equality
basis. He pointed out that before

Dr. Duggan observed that while
there are trouble spots in Latin-
American today Peru and Mexico hav-
ing broken off relations, Bolivia and
Paraguay being at war, and Argen-
tina and Uraguay having recently
resumed diplomatic relations-those
nations have been most willing in tie

of arbitration, and other crises have
been averted by peaceful .means.

The change 'for the better in re-

through the efforts of the late

ambassador to Mexico, and of for-

Herbert Hoover made in 1928 fol-

Another outlet for those outbursts
made so popular by the roller-skat-

Penny Carnival opens tonight at
Barbour gymnasium. It's time to rob'
the young brother's bank and with

for the gay, carnival spirit.
There are interests for everyone:
fishing for those who like to play
truant, ring-toss for the ahletic,
shuffle board for the more feeble, ad-
vice for the love-lorn, and bagatelle
for the devil-may-care.
Provisions have also been made for
the more serious-minded: there are
jig-saws in abundance, while visions
of the future may be obtained for a
few cents, too. And what could be
more luxurious than sitting with a
stein of beer from the (root) beer

GENEVA, April 28.--P)-A head-
on collision between French and Ger-
man delegates that threatened to dis-
rupt the World Disarmament Con-
ference was smoothed over today by
the intervention of Norman H. Davis,
the American envoy.
Mr. Davis recalled the constructive
efforts being made at Washington to
put the troubled world in order, and
pleaded that all show a similar at-
tempt to conciliate at Geneva.
In order not to "jeopardize the bal-
ance" of the armes reduction pro-
posal recently submitted by Prime
Minister MacDonald of Great Bri-
tain, the United States ambassador
said his government supportedsthe
British plan. The statement was one
of the dramatic developments in the
day's discussion.
Declaring that the origin of the
difficulties being grappled with in
Washington is excessive nationalism,
Mr. Davis said "we have been too
accustomed to approach these prob-
lems with a restricted point-of-view."
The dissension struck the confer-
ence when Count Rudolph Nadolny
of Germany complained that Ger-
many had been waiting 14 years for
the powers to make good their promi-
ses to reduce armaments, and when
Rene Massigli of France retorted

The men, all between 18 and 25 years
of age, are to report first at the

tion. After the city's allotment has
been picked it will be sent to Camp

Washtenaw County's quota will be

Ann Arbor will be decided by the

Ann Arbor in the number of men
to be recruited is Ypsilanti with 20
and Saline with 12.

defeated attempts to make major
changes in the inflationary and agri-
cultural legislation.
President Roosevelt had taken time
from his French and Canadian con-
ferences to send sharp notice of his
opposition to the amendment em-
powering him to aid the veterans
with new money.
"That ends it here," laconically re-
marked Speaker Henry T. Rainey to
newspaper men who told him the bill
was defeated and asked of House.
Premiers Leave
Those triumphs kept te President
smiling as he had earlier in bidding
adieu to Edouard Herriot, of France,
and to Prime Minister R. B. Bennett
of Canada. As with Prime Minister
Ramsay MacDonald of Great Britain,
all participants recorded satisfaction
from the exchange of views, but em-
phasized that specific committments
were not the present aim.
The President and M. Herriott had
a "frank and friendly" talk on the
war debts but left conclusions for
later negotiations between the two
governments. As it stands, France is
expected here to pay up. Should the
London Economic Coiflerence prove
fruitful, revision may be in order.
As the former French Premier sped
to New York by train, the White
House made public a statement in
which he and the President said that
their meeting had resulted in "as
complete an understanding as pos-
sible" on common problems.
"We have examined in particular,"
it went on, "the manner in which
commercial policies should develop
for the purpose of promoting rather
than restricting international trade."
In that connection, a likelihood
developed that in London tomorrow
Norman H. Davis, ambassador-at-
large, will propose a world truce on
tariff changes pending the confer-
ence opening there June 12. His ap-
proach will be at a session of the
committee making ready for the
world parley.
Plan Treaty Power
Administration experts practically
completed the projected legislation
to arm the President with authority
to negotiate reciprocal tariff reduc-
tion treaties. This power, probably
limited to 50 per cent of the tariff
in question, would be used to restore
the weakened American foreign
trade. The bill may reach the Capitol
next week.
It is being taken for granted that,
if possible, Mr. Roosevelt will name
Secretary Cardell Hull to lead the
delegation to London. Those men-
tioned as his associates include
Chairman Key Pittman, of the Sen-
ate Foreign Relations Committee;
Robert L. Doughton and S. D. Mc-
Reynolds, of the House Ways and
Means and Foreign Affairs commit-
tees, and Raymond Moley, assistant
secretary of state.
It was clear that fuller realization
of difficulties in store had been made
possible by the Herriot conference,
the cheerful motto seeming to be
that "to be forewarned is to be fore-
