CONFERENCE, June 2.-(A)-With
whitecaps flashing against the port-
holes and the ship rolling heavily,
American delegates to the world
economic conference assembled to-
night in Secretary of State Hull's
flower-filled cabin for their first
meeting of the trip and decided to
split up the various topics on the
program of the parley.
Secretary Hull said afterwards
that Sen. IKey Pittman of Nevada, a
member of the delegation, was the
most suitable person to study silver
and kindred monetary questions.
Other assignments are not yet defi-
nite, but the secretary of state is ex-
pected to concentrate upon means
for moderating tariff rates.
The first thing the nations need
to do, Mr. Hull said, is to survey the
conditions ,of economic extremism
which have choked international
trade for the normal levy of $50,-
000,000,000 annually to less than
$12,000,000,000 and to decide whether
to continue the practice with its
demonstrated disastrous results.
CPoU n cl Is To
Find Roomers
Fraternity houses that are plan-
ing to stay open during the Sum-
mer Session and Which desire to
have roomers should get in touch
with the Interfraternity Council; it
was announced last night by Max-
well T. Gail, ',secretary-treasurer
of the council. Men who desire such
accommodations should also see the
council, Gail said, since the council
will attempt to serve as a clearing
huose for this information.
Fraternities that have vacant jobs
on their staffs have been asked to
communicate with the council office
also, submitting the names of those
members of their fraternity which
desire jobs at other houses. This
should be done next week or early
in the fall, Gail said.
Bethel B. Kelley, '34, president of
the council, has issued an appeal to
all houses to co-operate with the
activities of the council in putting
out the council handbook. "It is ab-
solutely necessary that we have com-
plete information from each house
if we are going to have the hand-
book ready for next year," Kelley
said. -

Dobbs Elected
Successor To
Noted Political Scientist
Becomes President Of
Princeton University
PRINCETON, N. J., June 2.-(2 )-
Prof. Harold Willis Dodds, political
expert and counsellor to nations, to-
day was chosen by the Princeton
University Board of Trustees as pres-
ident to succeed John Grier Hibben,
who died in retirement.
Only 44 years old, Professor Dodds
appears some years younger despite
a life of crowded activity since he
graduated from Grove City College in
Pennsylvania in 1909.
Professor Dodds will take over the
administrative chair from Edward
D. Duffield, who has been acting
president since Dr. Hiben retired a
year ago.
At the same time announcement
was made of the selection of Luther
P. Eisenhart as dean of the Grad-
uate School and Robert Kilburn Root
as dean of the faculty.
The selection of Professor Dodds is
a departure from the practice of
choosing theologians or philosophers
since the foundation of the univer-
Committee To

Into Lobbying
State Police Will Aid In
Investigating Charges ;
Smith And Jarvis Called
LANSING, June 2.-(P)-State po-
lice and the attorney-general's de-
partment were enlisted by the House
committee investigating lobbying to-
day as members promised to resume
the inquiry vigorously next week.
Rep. Lawrence O'Neill (Dem., Pa-
ris), chairman of the committee, said
co-operation had been promised by
both the enforcing and legal branches
of government. He said State police
would serve a subpoena on John W.
Smith, Detroit councilman, to bring
him here next Tuesday to explain
why he called this a "cash and carry"
legislature. He intimated they. alsp
might be used to assist in checking
details of alleged parties in Chicago
and Lansing.
From the Senate came a demand
that Rep. H. H. Jarvis (Dem., Ben-
ton Harbor), who promised to name
members of the Legislature who ac-
cepted money, be forced to amplify
his charges at once.

English Actor
Added To Cast
Of Dumas Play
Robert Loraine Will Take
Part Of Armand In
'Lady Of The Camelias'
Addition to cast of Dumas' "The
Lady of the Camelias" of Robert
Loraine, distinguished English star,
in the role of M. Duval, father to
Armand, was announced yesterday
by Robert Henderson, director of the
Dramatip Season. In addition to
Miss Jane Cowl in the title role of
Marguerite Gautier, this will make
the cast of "The Lady of the Came-
has" include Rollo Peters, Mr. Lo-
raine, Tom Powers and Lewis Martin
in starring roles.
Robert Loraine took prt-in - thei
second production of the Dramatic
Season, "Springtime for Henry," in
which he played the comedy role
of Mr. Jelliwell. In "The Lady of
the Camelias," he will have a highly
dramatic part as M. Duval, culmin-
ating in the "letter" scene in the
third act in which Duval forces Mar-
guerite to give up his son, Armand.
Rollo Peters is cast as Armand,
lover of Marguerite, in "The Lady
of the Camelias," while Tom Powers
plays the villainous Baron de Var-
veille; Lewis Martin is cast as Gas-
ton; and Katherine Wick Kelly
makes her second appearance of the
season as Olympe. Other members of
the cast include Robert Henderson
as Gustave, opposite Peggy Hoven-
den as Nichette. Gwen Delaney,
who had the role of Grace Hallam
in "Another Language," will play
Marguerite's maid, Nanette; and
Francis Compton will appear as the
senile St. Claire.
The production of "The Lady of
the Camelias" will be the most elab-
orate Robert Hendierson has ever
presented in Ann Arbor, he said.
Twenty seven different spot-lights
are being installed to light the pro-
duction, including a special Rein-
hardt system of lighting which Miss
Cowl's special technical director, Mr.
Arthur Edette, has brought with him
to Ann Arbor.

starring Violet Heming, Geoffrey
Kerr and Tom Powers, is now being
given. The production will play a
matinee and evening performance
today, as well as Monday and Tues-
day night. The management an-
nounces, however, 'that seats are still
available in all sections of the house

Year's 'Frosh Bible'
Plans for a codification of all rules
which students are subject to, in-
cluding both the University regula-
tions and those to be laid down by
the newly elected Undergraduate
Council on Student Affairs, are being
made by members of the Council, ac-
cording to- Gilbert E. Bursley, '34,
,University authorities are codify-l
ing University rules at the present
time, and the Council will probably
meet to draw up its own rules some
time during the examination period,
Bursley said. The haste is necessary
because it would be desirable to in-
clude both sets of rules in the "Frosh
Bible" for next year, he explained.
"It is the purpose of the Council,"
he said, "to mark out definitely the
sphere of activity of the Council in
relation to the University adminis-
tration, and it is to this end that the
new codification will be made."
The powers of the new body have
been separated into the constructive
and disciplinary fields by Bursley,
who stated that the disciplinary
functions would be performed, in ac-
cordance with the constitution, by a
committee composed of the president
and four male members to be elected
by the Council. The judiciary com-
mittee, as it will be called, has not
yet been chosen.
Arrangements have been made to
print the minutes of all Council
meetings in The Daily, it was an-
nounced last night.
More tha- 100 otlthe new
constitution will be mimeographed
for distribution to students who are
particularly interested, Bursley said,
while there will be an attempt
made to make a copy available to
every student next fall.-

a "splendid interest," final arrange-
ments were being made this week for
the 40th annual Summer Session,

program of activities as has ever
been planned, according to Dean
Edward H. Kraus.
After a slump in response during
and immediately following the bank-
ing holiday, Dean Kraus said, in-
quiries picked up, and during the
month of May they have been about
as numerous as they were during the
same period last year.
The 1933 Summer Session will
open Monday, June 29, in all
branches of the University except
the Law School, where the first term
is to begin Tuesday, June 20, and the

Graduate School it begins June 21.
Law School registration will be held
June 16, 17, and 19. Hours and
rooms for registration are to be
found in detail in the Daily Official

schools and colleges will cover a pe-
riod of eight weeks, closing Friday,
Aug. 18. In the Law School the

prominent educators from other in-
stitutions in this country and abroad,
will conduct the 700 courses to be
offered this year.
All Facilities Available
All facilities of the University are
available, and all work is not only
an integral part of the University,
according to Dean Kraus, but is
equivalent in method, character, and1
credit value to similar work offered
during the regular term.
Eleven excursions, 26 lectures,
seven concerts, and nine plays will
be offered as part of a broad pro-
gram of special features accompany-
ing the academic program for the
session, the complete program for
which is listed in the announcement.
Trips to Detroit, the Ford plant,
Niagara Falls and vicinity, the Gen-
eral Motors Proving Ground at Mil-
ford, Ford's Greenfield Village and'
Airport, the Cranbrook Schools at
Bloomfield Hills, Put-in-Bay on Lake
Erie, and the new Michigan State
Prison at Jackson will be included
on the schedule of summer excur-
sions this year.
Gould On Summer Faculty
Prof. Laurence M. Gould, well-
known geologist and explorer who
will return to the faculty here for
the summer, will conduct the excur-
sions to Niagara Falls and Put-in-
Bay. The others will be in charge of

nalism department.

Degrees In Letters, Law,
And Business Will Be
Given In 7-Year Plan
Due to the increase in the magni-
tude and complexity of business op-
erations and their close relationship
with the law profession, the Univer-
sity is now offering a combined pro-
gram in Letters, Business, and Law.
The course leads to degrees from
each of the three schools and short-
ens the time required to earn the
degrees separately from nine years
to seven years and two summer ses-
sions, which can be completed in
seven calendar years.
"The advantage of the plan is that
it provides a balanced and co-ordi-
nated program in the two closely-
related fields and further that it en-
ables the student to complete such
a course with a substantial saving
of time over that required for the
three degrees earned separately,"
Dean C. E. Griffin of the School of
Business Administration said.
The requirements for admission to
the School of Business Administra-
tion on the above plan are the same
as those for the ordinary Letters
and Business combination, that is,
the student must have at least 90
hours with one and one-half honor
points per hour to his credit. The
90 hours must include at least 12
hours of economics, of which courses
51 and 52 and 171 and 172 are re-
After the completion of three
years' work in the literary college,
the work of the School of Business
Administration is started in the fol-
lowing Summer Session and com-
pleted in the fourth and sixth years
of the course.
The student is enrolled in the Law
School at the beginning of the fifth
year of the course. Another Summer
Session follows between this year
and the sixth. During this Summer
Session, the student completes one-
third of a year of law, and in the
sixth year he is enrolled in both the
School of Business Administration
and the Law School. With the com-
pletion of this year, the degree of
M. B. A. will be conferred and the
student will also have third-year
standing in the Law School, At the
