Silver Buying
Bill Likely To
President Is Reported As
Ready To Compromise
On Measure
WASHINGTON, April 24. -()-
Congressional passage and Presiden-
tial approval of a bill to authorize
the purchase of a billion ounces of
silver for use as primary money was
predicted today by a member of the
Senate silver bloc.
The senator, one of seven leaders,
who took part in the White House
conference on silver, said that when
the President was told that silver once
occupied a. ratio of 1 to 4 with gold
as a primary money Mr. Roosevelt
suggested the restoration of that ra-
The legislation would call for the
purchase of 50,000,000 ounces of silver
a month. Observers recalled, however
an authoritatively learned Presiden-
tial view that even such an amount
would hardly dent the situation.
Other members of the silver bloc
definitely split with the White House,
concentrated for enactment of the
Dies silver remonetization-farm re-
lief bill in mandatory form. The Pres-
ident agreed openly to accept only
permissive white metal legislation.
Holders To Be Revealed
Senators turned an eye on the
treasury today to learn what if any,
disclosures might be found in the
list of silver holders in New York
speculative market compiled by Sec-
retary Morgenthau.
The treasury secretary planned to
transmit only several hundred of the
approximately 1,000 names of silver
holders in the first batch.
The list was compiled in response
to a Senate resolution. Morgenthau
once said it showed that some of those
interested in the passage of silver
legislation were not entirely disin-
terested. After strong congressional
objection, he explained he did not
mean members of Congress.

Educational Ref orm Is Keynote
Of Annual Association Meeting

Reform in the organization, ad-
ministration, curriculum, and teach-
ing methods in education was the
keynote of the 39th annual meeting
of the North Central Association held
recently in Chicago, according to Dr.
Calvin O. Davis of the School of Ed-
"Along this line the association is
authorizing a number of school ex-
periments permitting high schools
and colleges to depart radically from
practices formerly recognized as nec-
essary by the association, the pur-
pose of which is to test the wisdom
of certain great changes," Dr. Davis
Founded In 1895
The North Central Association was
founded in 1895 through the efforts
of members of the Michigan School-
masters' Club, which opens athree-
day convention here tomorrow. The
first president of the association was
Dr. James B. Angell, a former presi-
dent of the University. Ever since
that time members of the University
faculty have been active in the as-
sociation and at the present time hold
some of its highest positions. Dr. Da-
vis is, and has been for the past nine
years, editor of the North Central
Association Quarterly; Dean Edward
H. Kraus of the literary college was
appointed to a position on one of the
most important commissions at the
last meeting; and Dr. George E.
Carrothers, director of the Bureau of
Cooperation with Educational Insti-
tutions, has been a member of anoth-
er chief commission for a number of
The purpose of the association, Dr.
Davis said, is "to establish closer re-
lations between secondary schools
and institutions of higher education
within the north central states and
such other territory as the associa-
tion may recognize."
Adopt New Regulations
The adoption of a new set of regu-
lations for the crediting of institu-
tions of higher education was one of
the principal accomplishments of the
past meeting, he said. An attempt
will be made, under the new system.
not to judge institutions on isolated
counts but on all their aspects., A'
special commission worked for four
years on the regulations, receiving
approximately $100,000 from a large
educational foundation to help them
in their work.
There were five major addresses
given during the four-day meeting,!
according to Dr. Davis. The most
outstanding one, which the audience

Dean Tells Advantages Of
Engineering Training In
Legal Profession
Dean Henry M. Bates of the Law
School was the principal speaker at
the first dinner meeting of the So-
ciety for Industrial Lawyers held re-
cently. His topic was "The Oil Con-
servation Problem," and through it
he illustrated the advantage of en-
gineering training and experience as
preparation for the study and prac-
tice of law.
George Knowles, '34L, president of
the society, presided and told in a
summary the history of the society
since its inception last December.
Nine Guests Present
Guests at the meeting included,
besides Dean Bates, Prof. E. Blythe
Stason of the Law School, Prof. Wal-
ter C. Sadler and Prof. John S. Wor-
ley of the College of Engineering,
and five junior engineering students.
Given certain raw materials the
engineer must produce an engine that
works, a building that stands, a bridge
that functions, and due regard must
be given to the economic factors in-
volved, he explained.
Irrespective of its character no
great enterprise proceeds without the
lawyer., There are the rights of the
two immediate parties involved, ven-
dor anid vendee, using these terms
broadly, there is the right of the state,
and there are the rights of the nation
and national policy.
And it is manifest to those with
enough experience, he continued, that
the lawyer does a better job when he
speaks the language of the engineer
also. The engineer, already trained
to be reasonably certain, exact, and
logical, now comes to the law school
and ascertains just what the lawyer
is trying to understand and to do.
Sadler, Stason Speak
Professors Sadler and Stason also
addressed the meeting during dinner.
The society plans to bring the fields
of law and engineering. together so
as to enable them to solve their mu-
tual problems. Many law cases in-
volving questions of engineering re-
quire that the lawyer be trained in
engineering as well as law.
Although at present the society's
activities are confined to the Uni-
versity, they plan to expand into a
national society with groups in all
colleges and universities that have
both schools of engineering and law.

"Look out for poison ivy," warned
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director of
the University Health Service, in list-I
ing the three main spring hazards to
Cross-country hikers who go gaily
along through bushes and low-lying
shrubbery should learn to recognize
the three-leaved, shiny-green plants,
growing about a foot high, for bushy
sections are its natural habitat. After
contact with the plant, the possibly
infected portions should be thorough-
ly scrubbed with hot water and soap.
A word of advice is extended to
those individuals who long to ac-
quire a manly and distinguishing sun-
tan. "A little tan a day may keep
the doctor away, but too much will
surely bring him. Don't overdo your
bleaching process.
The third word of caution is also
directed to inexperienced hikers. In
regard to equipment, the axiom, "new
shoes are to be seen, but not worn,"
might be applied. Blisters, which
often destroy the enjoyment of an
otherwise good hike, also lead, oc-
casionally, to serious infections.
Hackett To Sing In
Pittsburgh, Kansas
Prof. Arthur Hackett of the School
of Music will participate in three
programs of the annual Music Fes-
tival at Pittsburg, Kan., which this
year will take place the latter part
of April.
He will appear as recitalist in one
concert and will sing the tenor role in
Horatio Parker's "Hora Novissima,"
in addition to the tenor part in Han-
del's "Messiah."
This will be Professor Hackett's
third appearance at that festival,
where he has become a great favor-

Agreement To

Barthou Gains Support In,
Friendship Mission To
Poland's Capitol
WARSAW, Poland, April 24. - (N)
-Victory appeared assured for the
French foreign minister, Louis Bar-
thou, today in his mission to
strengthen the bonds of friendship
between France and Poland.
Such an achievement was his first
goal when he set out last Saturday
from Paris. He also hoped to strength-
en France's alliance with the little
The opinion grew today that Mr.
Barthou had no new cards to play
in France's relations with Poland -
aside from a very definite desire
to stabilize the Franco-Polish alli-
Assurance was given Monday by
Marshal Pilsudski, virtual dictator
of Poland, that the alliance, formed
in 1921, will continue to be the cor-
nerstone of Poland's foreign policy.
He cited Poland's geographical posi-
tion between Germany and Russia as
a guarantee of this.
So far as could be learned, the
French diplomat made no concrete
proposals of any kind in talks with
Marshal Pilsudski and Foreign Min-
ister Joseph Beck, although it was
taken for granted the question of
armaments was discussed.
One of the objects of Mr. Barthou's
tour was to line up support for France
in her stand against the rearming of
Polish reaction indicated that the
visitor succeeded in dissipating any
feeling among the Poles that France
does not appreciate fully the fact
Poland has strengthened her posi-
tion and can now carry on an index-
pendent foreign policy. - '
