Dublin Streets Patrolled'
By Armored Cars; Five
Mile Parade Is Staged
BELFAST, Nov. 16.--(P)--Railroad
tracks were ripped up by rioters to-
day in an effort to prevent sightseers
from coming to Belfast to see the
Prince of Wales, who, guarded by
12,000 men, took part in a five-mile
parade to Stormont where he dedi-
cated the new Northern Ireland Par-
liament buildings.
Long sections of the railroad be-
tween Kells, County Meath, in the
Free State, and Belfast, were torn
up, and other parts of the road were
mined. Rails also were ripped up in
the vicinity of Cavan, also in the Free
At each end of the breaks in the
tracks were placed notices reading:
"Ireland belongs to the Irish, both
North and South," and on the sta-
tion at Kells there was a poster:
"Warning. Line ripped up and mined
in severalplaces. The train must not
proceed or it will be fired on."
Here and there along the damaged
section. of the railroad from Kells to
Belfast there were signs reading:
"Down with the Prince of Wales!"
All telegraph wires on the Kells to
Belfast route were cut. Red flags
were placed at points were the rails
were broken. Railroad officials dis-
covered what had happened before a
crowded Kells excursion train came
to any harm.
Belfast received the Prince with
great enthusiasm, but thousands of
police remained watchful tonight to
stop any hostile demonstration.
Ulster Nationalistis refused to have
anything to do with the ceremonies
connected with the Prince's first visit
to Belfast.
They protested that in coming here
he emmphasized the breach between
the counties wrich make uP North-
ern Ireland and the independent Free
State to the South.

by the research of Dr. Fellowes, said
Professor Moore yesterday. His work
covers the period from about 1580
until approximately 1620.
"He has .published about 30 vol-

these pieces of music have been un-
known and unavailable to musicians

Franee Able
To Pay Debt,
Will Not Pay U. S. Unless
Provision For German
Collection Is Made
France can pay her installment of
the war debt which is due Dec. 15, ac-
cording to a statement which Eph-
riam Lipson, New College, Oxford
University, made in an interview
after his lecture yesterday.
"However, the French Chamber
will not assent to any payment of
debts owed to the United States un-
less there is included in that bill a
provision for the collection of the
reparations owed France by Ger-
many," Mr. Lipson said.
"Such a move," he declared, "would
bring about the bankruptcy of the
German government and a great fi-
nancial uheaval in Europe.
Three Possibilities
Mr. Lison jointed out that there
are three possible ways for paying
a debt: by a gold payment, by serv-
ices such as shipping or lending
money, and by payment in manufac-
tured goods. He dismissed the first
method as impossible for England;
the next two he said were not per-
mitted by the United States.
At the present time, said Mr. Lip-
son, America and France hold so
much of the world's supply of gold
that it is impossible for England to
make a specie payment without ser-
iously impairing her own financial
"As for services," he said, "the
United States has its own merchant
marine and will not accept any pay-
ment by that method."
It is easily understood, Mr. Lipson
explained, why the United States is
not willing to take manufactured
goods in payment for the debts. Such
a step would force down the prices
of American manufactured products.
Face Impasse
"The United States is on the horns
of a dilemma," declared Mr. Lipson.
"She must either cancel the debts
outright or scale them down, since
collection from both of her major
creditors is impossible. While the
policy of scaling down the debts
seems to be the one most favored
here, the advantages of the other
course are apparent.
"If the debts are cancelled, the
United States will acquire in the
councils of Europe an immense pres-
tige which can be used for the pur-
poses of forcing disarmament or any-
thing else.
2,000 Detroiters Begin
Clearing 10-Inch Snow
DETROIT, Nov. 16. -- (P)-The
heaviest November snowfall in the
history of the local weather bureau
blanketed Detroit tonight, as an army
of 2,000 men began digging the city
out from under a 10-inch covering
of white, bringing with it minor traf-
fic accidents. delayed transportation,
and, indirectly, two deaths.
Several other sections of the state
reported similar heavy falls, with sev-
eral accidents out-state adding to the
injured list. Colder weather was fore-
cast for tonight, with some snow, as
the temperature hovered during the
day in the thirties.

End Of

American education as a whole is
'magnificent achievement," said Dr.
Frederick B. Robinson, president of
the College of the City of New York,
last night before members of the
Association of Governing Boards of
state universities and allied institu-
"Whatever faults we have spring
from our virtues," he said, "and the
few abuses now present in the system
are the result of the extensive and
rapid expansion in the past but about
to be eliminated as a matter of
Suggests Improvements
Improvements Dr. Robinson sug-
gested were greater care in the selec-
tion of education students; return of
the grammar schools to emphasis on
"hard work and fundamentals"
rather than the premature pursuit of
inclinations; division of high-school
students into classes intending fur-
ther academic study, further profes-
sional or trade study, and no further
schooling; and greater contributions
by university men to the public.
At the conclusion of Dr. Robinson's
speech Zeldon Cohen, '33, arose and
asked him why the College of the
City of New York had discharged a
faculty member for his radical views
and expelled student sympathizers.
Dr. Robinson gave a clear statement
of the college's stand on the matter,
which pleased the audience, but the
questioner refused to sit down and
was finally silenced by the interven-
tion of President Ruthven, who was l
sitting on the platform.
Address Ends Program
The address was the last item of
the day's program which included
an opening address by Dr. Ruthven,
luncheon with the Rotary club and
a speech by John Callahan, Wiscon-
sin state superintendent of schools,
a tour of the campus, the Palmer
Christian organ recital, and tea at
the Ruthven home.
This afternoon Charles F. Ward,
president of the Association and of
the University of Missouri, will de-
liver the president's address on "Our
Exalted Task." The remaining ses-
sions will be held in East Lansing,
where the convention will continue
until Saturday noon, ending with the
Michigan State-Detroit football game.

Hoover Takes
Up Duties At
White House
Back At Washington To
Pursue His Policies Un-
til March 4
WASHINGTON, Nov. 16.-()-
President Hoover today plunged into
consideration of the nation's war
debt course and of the policies his
administration will pursue until its
March 4 conclusion.
Almost before the echoes of a re-
turning-to-the-capital reception for
him had died, the executive called in
one after another of his aides.
Secretary Mills, after a half-hour
conference, let it be known that he
had discussed the policies to be out-
lined shortly in response to requests
from foreign debtors for a review of
their obligations and for a suspension
of payments due on Dec. 15. Senator
Reed, of Pennsylvania, followed,
while Secretary Stimson discussed
the debt problem, also, across the
White House luncheon table.
Other Cabinet and official callers,
including Vice President Curtis, re-
ported that they had spoken princi-
pally of more domestic problems and
of other matters to be placed before
Congress when it convenes Dec. 5.
Although the President himself re-
mained silent on debt matters, a
possibly he may until the closer ap-
proach of his conference with Presi-
dent-Elect Roosevelt, it is known h
is definitely opposed to anothe-
year's moratorium.

Party Complaints Bring
Problem To Head; All
Representatives Will
Talk On Question
President Denies
Rumors Of Probe
Fraternities Seek Own
Solution Without Aid
From Administration;
Alumni To Help
An attempt to reduce alleged fra-
ternity drinking will be discussed at
the next meeting of the Interfra-
ternity Council, it was revealed yes-
terday by student and alumni offi-
cials of that body. The matter will
be brought up as a result of com--
plaints made by parents of women
attending fraternity parties, made
both to the University and to the
Alumni Interfraternity Council.
Edwin T. Turner, '33, Interfra-
ternity Council president, stated last
night that President Alexander G.
Ruthven had told him that forces
outside of the administration had
made complaints to him about ex-
cessive drinking among fraternity
men. Most of these complaints came
from women attending fraternity
parties, Turner said.
Lloyd Advises Women
Miss Alice Lloyd, dean of women,
told The Daily last night that she
feared an increase in drinking might
esult from the overwhelming wet
entimentshown in last Tuesday's
-lection and was urging "o-i
,omen to takea firm stand onpthe
uestion. The subject is reported to
ave been under discussion at a meet-
ig of the Pan-Hellenic Council.
This attempt, according to Nathan
. Potter, prominent Ann Arbor fra-
arnity alumnus, is entirely unofficial
nd is in no way a disciplinary
ieasure. The matter, he indicated,
,ill be placed before the fraternity
-epresentatives at the meeting Tues-
Jay in an effort to have them bring
about the solution of the problem
rather than have faculty officials
enter into the dispute.
President Ruthven, Mr. Potter
state, said he had reason to believe
that there is more drinking than in
the last few years, and as a result
of the complaints received, the mat-
ter was brought up at an alumni
meeting last Saturday. The houses
involved were not mentioned by
name. It is hoped that the situation
will be cleared up immediately with-
out disciplinary measures.
Howard Gould, '35L, last year's
secretary-treasurer of the Interfra-
ternity Council, whose duties includ-
ed attending all fraternity parties on
inspection trips, stated last night: "I
attended 158 parties during my term
of office and at no time did I see any
evidence of that which is now al-
leged. To my knowledge, conditions
on the campus at this year's fra-
ternity parties have been of a similar
standard. It would be very wise if
the fraternities were allowed to con-
tinue to handle their own affairs."
Houses to Act
In a statement to The Daily last
night Turner said: "Fraternities can
best take care of the situation on
their own volition. In the meeting
of the Interfraternity Council, which
will be held Tuesday, the problem
will be put squarely before the houses
and in this way we can get an ex-
pression on how the liquor situation
can best be handled."
"The alumni group," .declared
President Ruthven last night, "has
decided to organize its efforts to-
ward control in the so-called liquor
situation as well as in any other fra-
ternity problem which may arise.

There is to my knowledge no in-
vestigation under way."
This action comes on the heels of
one accomplished and one rumored
investigation into the campus liquor
situation during the past few years.
The first one, conducted by a com-
mittee of the state legislature after
the famous J-Hop fraternity raids,
exonerated the Michigan clubs and
students, while the second one, fol-
lowing last year's Sophomore Cab-
aret. ws ffound tn he withnt fnun-

Van Sickle Backs 'Economic
Disarmament;' Scores Senate

"Economic disarmament" must be
effected and the United States as the
leading creditor nation must take
the initiative before a satisfactory
international financial arrangement
can be reached, pointed out Dr. J. V.
Van Sickle, assistant director for the
Social Sciences of the Rockefeller
Foundation, at a meeting of the Eco-
nomics Club last night at the Union.
Dr. Van Sickle, a former member
of the University faculty, is stationed
in Paris. He led an open forum last
night regarding the European atti-
tude toward the American foreign
"I feel that our whole boast on pro-
gram has been vitiated by our tar-
iff policy," he stated. Our attitude
on disarmament also aggravates the
situation, he continued. Compara-

not have taken place." He stated
that if the United States would take
the initiative in such economic dis-
armament, Europe would probably
follow our example.
The American treaty-making sys-
tem was scored by Dr. Van Sickle,
who blamed the situation on the lack
of international intelligence on the
part of the Senate. "The executive
proposes," he said, "but God only
knows what the Senate will do."
In opening the forum, Dr. Van
Sickle sketched the shifts in opinion
of European nations with regard to
America, and blamed the negative
change on the foreign policy. He
pointed to the difference in feeling
of various sections of the continent
occasioned by the war debt morator-
ium arrangement in 1931. The French
