Mrs. Pearson Talks To

t accepted the resignations of Joseph
F. Cox, dean of agriculture, and
James B. Hasselman, director of
publications, and abolished the office
of college historian held by Frank S.
Kedzie, president-emeritus.
The motion to accept the resigna-
tion of Cox and Hasselman was sub-
mitted by Gilbert Daane, Grand Rap-
ids. The resignations are effective
July 1, 1933. Both men were placed
on immediate leave of absence with
full pay.
The motion to abolish the office of
college historian held by Dr. Kedzie
was made by Clark L. Brody, of Lans-
ing. This motion directed the college
librarian to be custodian of all rec-
ords of the historical office.
Another motion made by M. B. Mc-
Pherson, of Lowell, directed the board
of agriculture to request the next
legislature to draft a law placing the
responsibility for the administration
of the college under the jurisdiction
of the board and the president.
Joseph E. Baldwin, special assistant
attorney-general who has been mak-
ing an investigation of the college at
the command of the board presented
his report at today's meeting.
He stated in his "report that he
found nothing "of serious conse-
quence."
Russian Revolution
Shown In Film Of
Art Cinema Group
Showing for the first tine in his-
tory the change of a nation's gov-
ernment and revolution at its height,
the film "Ten Days that Shook the
World" presents a picture of the re-
volt of the Russian people in 1917
against the regime of the Czars.
The picture, directed by Eisenstein,
is based on a storV' by John Reed, an
American Journalist who was trav-
elling in Russia with Lincoln Steffens
at the time of the revolution.
Eisenstein received the co-opera-
tion of the Russian Government in
making the film to the extent of hav-
ing whole sections of the city of
Patrograd closed to traffic while some
100,000 actors went through their
demonstrations. Statues of the Czar-
ist days which had been removed and
placed in museums were replaced in
the original sites while the filming
was being done.
The film will be shown at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre Dec. 1
and 2. It will be the first presenta-
tion of the Art Cinema League. Paid
membership in this organization has
already mounted to more than 600.
Its sponsors predict that this number
will be doubled following the showing
here of "Ten Days That Shook the
World."
Debt Payments
Is Advised By
Sec'y Stimson
(By Associated Press)
Foreign nations seeking an exten-
sion from the United States of the
inter-governmental debt moratorium
were advised in three notes made
public yesterday by Secretary Stim-
son to deliver their payments by Dec.
15.
The notes, which were handed to
the British, French, and Belgian am-
bassadors Nov. 23 suggested that "by
such payments the prospects of a
satisfactory approach to the whole
question * * * would be greatly in-
creased.,
Secretary Stimson said President
Hoover had no authority to grant

not; but, if it is, the students them-
selves should take the responsibility
of controlling the situation."
"No university can neglect to deal
with the demoralizing influence of {
excessive drinking if such exists, since
it is in itself a negation of educa-
tion."
Miss Lloyd's statement continues,
"A state university has a special re-
sponsibility. At this university the
state pays two-thirds of the cost of
the student's training. It is obviously
wrong to allow the state to pay for
any part of a citizen's education un-
less that person is using his faculties
to the utmost. The inference is ob-
vious."
Silent About Men
"The drinking situation, if there
is one, can best be controlled by stu-
dent action and opinion. I cannot
speak for the men on this campus,
but it is my opinion that the women
can do a great deal to make the
'problem a negligible one."
"Many of the women's organiza-
tions have taken a strong stand on
this question," Miss Lloyd said, appa-
rently referring to a recent meeting
of the Pan-Hellenic association. "If
every organization will take an active
stand, there will be no problem."
sin her conclusion Miss Lloyd said,
"At a time when the country is fc-
ing a serious transition, it is the duty
of educated people to face the issue
with wisdom and temperance."
Cook Request
Total Placed At
Eight Million
Transfer Tax Appraisal
Gives Exact Amount Of
Gift For First Time
One of the largest gifts ever made
to an American university was appar-
ently definitely evaluated for the first
time yesterday when it was learned
in Ann Arbor that the sum of the
William W. Cook bequest to the Uni-
versity amounts to slgihtly more than
$8,700,000.
The total figure for the bequest
was learned for the first time as the
result of a tax transfer appraisal in
New York city on the present value
of the securities.
According to an estimate made by
a University official last night the
value of the gift at the time of Mr.
Cook's death was more than $10,00,-
000. Since that time the value of the
bequest has fallen far below its pres-
ent value and risen again to the
amount represented in the appraisal.
Inasmuch as Mr. Cook preferred
that the University should not know
the value of the gifts made during
his lifetime and financed the con-
struction of these first buildings in
secret, it is difficult to obtain an exact
valuation of these gifts. However, a
competent estimate places the value
of these benefactions made before his
death at between $4,500,000 and
$5,000,000, bringing the total amount
given to the University to something
over $13,000,000.
The donations of Mr. Cook to the
University before his death consist of
the Martha Cook dormitory for wom-
en, the original portion of the Law-
yer's Quadrangle including the dining
hall and the first section of the dor-
mitory, the funds for the Professorial
Chair in American Institutions now
held by Prof. Jesse S. Reeves of the
political science department, and the
funds for the construction of the sec-
ond portion of the dormitory in the
Lawyer's Quadrangle and the Legal
Research building.
