Less Student Drinking Than
In Old Days,' Says Forsythe!

"Drinking on the campus today is
not anywhere near as bad as it was
before prohibition," stated Dr. War-
ren E. Forsythe, Director of the Uni-
versity Health Service in a speech on
the liquor situation before the Adel-'
phi speech society, last night.
"However," he added, it is more
serious now than it was immediately
after the Prohibition law was passed
although better liquor with less wood
alcohol seems to be available."
"Personally, I can't see why stu-
dents drink alcoholic liquors; I can't
even tell the differnce between 'near
beer' and the real thing," he con-
tinued in showing whny even temper-
ate drinking was unnecessary but,
"not a very serious affair." The body
has a very good capacity for assimil-
ating and diluting the 50 per cent
alcohol which would coagulate the
blood stream if admitted in full
strength but, and Dr. Forsythe
chuckled, "It does take a while to
teach the body how to take it
The Health Service is not able to
give definite statistics on any student
mis-demeanors for no written records
or memoranda are ever made or per-
emitted on such social cases as ven-

ereal diseases, alcoholism or child-
birth to protect the individuals con-
cerned. "We have had, however, at
least one case of severe alcoholism or
delerium tremens this semester," he
stated in pointing out how the al-
coholic disintegration of the central
nervous system inevitably produced a
temporary or permanant form of in-
Alcohol does not produce a single
beneficial effect on the human body
but rather is harmfulutodsome de-
gree every time it is used, Dr. For-
sythe said. The belief that the drink-
ing of beer added weight was explod-
ed because the beverage does not
contain an appreciable amount of
food and acts only to remove all
worry and whet the appetite, ac-
cording to actual physiology.
"My entire sympathy is with the
W.C.T.U. and the work that they are
doing. They deserve a tolerant atti-
tude on our part because they have
seen the actual disgusting details of
the saloon and know what they are
fighting against." He concluded that
the prohibition amendment tried to
accomplish too great a reform all at
once and that the cessation of all
educational efforts in the last decade
was the fatal error on the part of the

Student Council
To Investigate
Honor System
Committee Appointed To
Make Survey Of Other
Feeling that the proctor system of
examining students at the University
retards development of character, the
Student Council last night appointed
a committee to investigate the prac-
ticablity of inaugurating the honor
system of examination in the liter-
ary college.
GOorge-Lambre :ht;harles Racine,
and Cecil Cantrill were appointed to1
make - a survey of the universities
now using the honor system and re-
port to the next meeting of the Coun-
"The honor system works in the
engineering college because it is in-
stilled in the students during the
first year," said Charles Burgess, "and
the student take the responsibility of
seeing that it works out. Further-
more," he stated, "the small num-
ber of students makes it possible to
work out such a system, whereas, it
could not be worked' out in a larger
department, such as the literary col-
Cecil Cantrill, one of the newly
elected members of the Council, said
that the honor system does not work
so efficiently in the larger classes in
the engineering college.
"The student comes to the Univer-
sity to build up his character," said
Lambrecht, "and the honor system
would help on this matter. The lit-
erary college students are just as
honorable as the engineering college
students and if it works in one col-
lege, it ought to work in another."
The subject has been brought up in
the past but has failed each time be-
cause of opposition from the Univer-
sity authorities.
The plan proposing a new form
of student government which was
presented to the University authori-
ties last spring was refused last week
with the recommendation that a
more specific set-up be made. The
Council will take the matter up at
the next meeting.

members of the Council, took 'the

French Refusal
To Pay Debts
Thought Likely
Herriot Attempts To Stall
Off Debate; Reproached
By Deputy Bouillon
PARIS, Nov. 29.--(P)-A consider-
able section of the Chamber of Dep-
uties today strongly advocated an
immediate declaration that it is im-
possible to pay the debts due the+
United States because such payments
necessarily are linked with repara-
Premier Eduoard Herriott, promis-
ing that the government would not
make any decision regarding the debt
problem without informing the
Chamber beforehand, did his utmost
to -stave off general debate on the
question at this time.
It appeared tonight, however, that
such a debate would develop Thurs-
day, although there were reports that
M. Herriott was prepared to pose a
question of confidence if the Cham-
ber insisted on it.
In the lobbies of the Chamber
there were numerous and lively pri-
vate discussions of the debt issue.
Surrounded by about 100 deputies,
Henry Franklin Bouillon, left radical,
reproached Premier Herriot for his
policy on the debts. It was M. Boul-
lon's contention that France has been
scandalously timid. in dealing with
this question.

Johnson Asks
Debt Payment
Administration Waits For
Next Move From Abroad
Without Comment
California Senator
Cites Opposition
If Europe Won't Pay, Our
Taxpayers M u s t Bear
The Burden, He Says
WASHINGTON, Nov. 29.-(P)-
While administration officials re-
mained uncommunicative waiting the
next war debt postponement move
from abroad, Sen. Hiram Johnson,
of California, pointed out congres-
sional opposition today with a forc-
ible assertion against any "tinker-
ing" with the debts.
Leader last year of the campaign
waged against President Hoover's
one-year moratorium, and die-hard
anti-cancellationist, Johnson said:
"There is just one thing to the
whole debt problem. That is whether
the European nations shall pay our
government what they owe us, or
shall the American taxpayers pay
what the European nations owe us.
"It is utterly nonsense to say that
France and Italy can't pay. It might
strain Great Britain some, but that
is no reason why we should put this
burden on the backs of the tax-
While these words were being ut-
tered Secretary Mills was saying for
the administration that "we are as
^ompletely in the dark now as we
were yesterday. The next move must
come from abroad."
He and others were reluctant even
to mention the debt subject, but the
rapid spread of rumor did cause the
secretary of the treasury to say there
had been no official discussion of the
possibilitythat Great Britain would
make only the interest payment of
$65,000,000 due on Dec. 15, postpon-
ing the $30,000,000 principal pay-
Mills maintained the question had
not been mentioned in his talk yes-
terday with Sir Roland Lindsay, the
British ambassador.
Delay in her payment of $30,000,-
000 on principal could be arranged
under existing agreements by consent
of the secretary of the treasury with-.
out congressional action.
But any further concession to
Great Britain, such as the right to
pay in its own money and not make
the transfer of gold, would require
congressional action.

Opposition F a d e s
Members Of Both Parties
Anxious To Dispose Of
Question At Once
WASHINGTON, Nov. 29.-(P)-
Ooposition to a House vote on pro-
hibition repeal Monday apparently
reached a new peak today and then
quickly diminished, as both Demo-
cratic and Republican members be-
gan conceding that the quicker the
question is disposed of the better.
Encouraged by reports that more
than 100 Republicans would vote for
his flat repeal and State convention
proposal, Speaker John N. Garner
said late today that it was his inten-
tion to carry out his plan for action
almost as soon as Congress convenes.
In addition a large group of South-
ern Democrats, who had registered
opposition to the proposal, told the
Vice-President Elect that they had
decided the issue should come to a
vote Monday to clear the way for
consideration of other pressing legis-
A division of opinion over the form

clared for provisions to outlaw the

First Ticket
For Rose

An order for a ticket to the Rose
Bowl game and a check for $10
to cover any possible admission
price that might be set were re-
ceived yesterday by the Michgan
Managers Club, according to .
Hawley Tapping, general secre-
tary of the Alumni Association
and a member of the cub.
The letter is from F. H. Lancan-
shire, '00, a former varsity man-
ager of the baseball team who at
present is residing in Naranjo,
Calif. In his letter Mr. Lancan-
shire says that the opinion of
west coast newspapers is definitely
that Michigan will be the one to
play in the annual game at Pas-
Jena on New Year's Day.
He further says that all the
Michigan alumni now residing in
that part of the country are hope-
ful that the invitation will come
to Michigan and predicts that, in
case it does, the game will be a
mreat colorful contest with a large
number of rooters present for his
old "Alma Mammy."
