European Riders Prove Superior to
All Others, Taking First
Eight Places
Paris, July 23.-(By A. P.)-France
today captured both team and individ-
ual honors in the Olympic "Cycling
marathon," a grueling grind of 188 kil-
ometers, approximately 117 miles, over
a road course starting and ending in
the Colombes stadium. The European
riders proved superior to the riders
from the western hemisphere.
European nations took the first eight
team places, with Argentina ninth and
the United States 10th.
Dlanchonette of France was first,
covering the difficult course in 6 hours
20 minutes, 48 seconds, nearly ten min-
utes better than his nearest rival, Ho-
evenadrs, of Belgium. Handul of
France was third, Skold of Sweden
fourth, Tarfondry of Belgium fifth, and
Bohlin of Sweden sixth. In the team
scoring, Belgium was' second, Sweden
third, Switzerland fourth, Italy fifth,
and Holland sixth,
The best of the American time was
made by John Poulicault, who covered
the distance in 7 hours 15 minutes,
15 3-5 seconds.
Harvey C. Emery, former Princeton
football and track star, is to be added
to the Michigan coaching staff next
fall, Coach Fielding H. Yost, director
of athletics, announced yesterday.
Emery was agreedupon for the pos -
tion by Coach Yost and Dean Whitney
of the school of education after in-
vestigating and iiterviewing a number
of candidates.
Emery will assist the coaching staff
in football, basketball, baseball, and
track in the athletic courses of the
school of physical education. He will
glso assist in the coaching of the var-
sity football, wrestling, and track
The new coach was captain of the
Princeton 'track and wrestling teams
last year, and vms among the leading
weight men in the east, specializing
in the hammer and discus throw. He
played at tackleaon the football eleven.
In addition he engaged in many stu-
dent activities, being voted by his
classmates at the close of his senior
year not only the best all around ath-
lete in his class, but also the best all
arouRN man, the most popular man,
and the man who had done the most
for Princeton.
Coach Emery will assist in the work
of coaching the Michigan eleven nexto

Twenty acres of land south of Fer-
ry field have been added to the ath-j
letic plant of the University to pro-
vtde for the growing intramural ath-
letic department. The Athletic as-
sociation has already graded andi
seeded the new ground.
The transferring of the intramural
sports to the new field will make pos-
sible the addition of a baseball dia-
mond for the exclusive use of the
freshman squads. The diamond will
be almost as good as the present Var-
sity diamond, jud is expected to give
unusually good facilities to the fresh-
man teams.
The new concrete tennis courts are
also being built to provide for the
Varsity net players during the early
spring and in wet weather when the
clay courts cannot beused.
In addition to these changes, a
new gallery will be built in Yost field
house, making the seating capacity
for bsaketball games 10,500.

U. S. Suggestions
May End London
Parley Deadlock


Suggestions of the unofficial U. S.
observers, Frank B. Kellog (above),
ambassador to Great Britain, and Col.
James A. Logan, may end the deadlock
in the inter-allied conference in Lon-
don on the Dawes plan for solution
of the German reparations problem.
Although first American proposals
failed to effect the deadlock of Great
Britain and France, it is indicated the
two counitries are likely to be brought
together in a middle course laid out by
Logan and Kellog.
Summer School
Becoming More!
Infellect u al
Summer school students are becom-
ing more intellectual according to a
survey of the sales of the various book
stores on State street. More booksj
have been purchased this summer than
ever before in the annals of summer
school trade.
Summer school has ceased to be the
haven of those whose home towns
lack variety. It is no longer a para-
dise composed of girls, men, and dilap-
idated Fords. People are no longer
"attending summer school." They are
studying and studying hard, if the book'
sales mean anything.
Book iperchants have various theor-
ies to explain this phenomenon. Some
say that the increase in enrollment in
the School of Education has something
to do with it. Some claim that the
recent increase in the salaries of
school teachers enables them to buy
snore books. All agree that the literary
collegebuys more books than any
other school.
This would seem to indicate that
Michigan summer session is tightening
up-that Ann Arbor will no longer be
the rendezvous of those who "can't be
bothered" going to a summer resort for
their fun.
Washington, July 23.-(By A. P.)-
Under agreement with the British em-
bassy the state department made pub-
lic tonight correspondence exchanged.
between Secretary Hughes and Am-
bassador Hloward providing for the
appointment in Washington of a min-
ister to represent the Irish Free State
in diplomatic intercourse with the
United States.
Colorado Gas Well on Fire
Fort Collins, Colo., July 23.-(By A.
P.)-The Mitchell gas well, which
came in last Saturday night, caught
fire late today. - The well had been
flowing between 20,000,000 and 25,000,-l

Reeds Says Responsibility for Better
Government Rests on Popular
Wifh the declaration that he might
as well be speaking upon the com-
mon dishonesties of life as upon com-
mon honesty in government, Prof. T.
H. Reed, of the political science de-
partment addressed an appeal for bet-
ter administration of government to
an enthusiastic audience yesterday in
Natural Science auditorium. He scor-
ed recent scandals, calling them the
result of popular acquiescence, and
laid the fundamental responsibility
upon "us easy, slack, lack-a-dasy,
cynical folks."
Investigation explosions in Washing-
ton have not been a surprise to those-
acquainted with politics in the Unitedt
States, Professor Reed added. Those
exist who buy favors from the gov-
ernment, and within the sanctum,
those exist who sell them. That the
public has set a different standard of
guilt for those two classes is one oft
the facts which demonstrates our in-
tellectual dishonestyt
"We are a lawless peoplle,'' the
speaker declared, "ready to defy thatI
law which interferes with our busi-f
ness and with our pleasue. We pro-t
pose to cheat when we can; although I
each one of us in choosing the lawsN
that he will violate is leaving only
the basis for anarchy. Corruption
among officials on the whole is sel- I
dom encountered but the opinion that
anyone who gets away with breaking 1
the law is not only reputable but
extremely clever is omnipresent.s
And that is the demoralizing factor.
Life and property are less safe hereI
in this most civilized of countries >
than they are anywhere else on the r
The consent of the governed places
the mattr finally within the handst
of the people. GVaft in reality de-°
pends upon public favor; it will cease
to be when the public raises to a high-e
er level of honesty.
"It is very doubtful that in thea
courts as they are now organized'
any man as wealthy as Doheny ort
Sinclair could ever be convicted,"
Professor Reed stated. "Most judgesa
are not corrupt; few juries can be
bribed. But the camouflage of pub-
licity through the newspapers can bec
used to throw handfuls of dust into
.the eyes of justice. And that can be
done most easily with money."
A few years ago Roosevelt wass
somewhat ridiculed for his "rediscov-t
ery of the Ten Commandments." They d
need to be rediscovered again; thec
time has come for another era of re-3
fom. The prime requisite of the pol-
itical prophet henceforth must be notI
his ability to make everyone thinkw
that he agrees with them, but hisc
leadershp in making common hones-
ty prevail in government and in tpe
life of the people,

To prevent seasonal ups and downs
in industry, Herbert Hoover, secret-
ary of commerce, advocates that the
building season be extended. This
will prevent the building trades fromt
idleness and unemployment during!
more than three-quarters of the year.
This report was a suplement to a
recommendation of the committee onG
seasonal operation in the construc-
tion industries, and a result of thet
unemployment conference called byt
President Harding in 1921.c
This extension of the building seas-i
on is important to the country, Sec-
retary Hoover said, because construc-
tion is the balance wheel of Amer-I
ican industry. The value of this in-f
dustry amounts to more than five bil-
lion dollars and the men employed in
the industry amount to millions. Ac-
tivity in the construction lines bear

Former Instructor in Public Speaking
and Law Departments to
Return in Fall
Carl Gunard Brandt, former instruct-
or in Public Speaking in the Univer-
sity, is to return in that capacity this
fall. Mr. Brandt will succeed Pro-
fessor R. K. Immel, who has accepted
the position o Dean of the School of
Speech at the University of Southern
California at Los Angeles.
In order that he might accept this
position in the Public Speaking De-
partment, Mr. Brandt recently refused
the opportunity of running for Prose-
cuting Attorney on the Republican
ticket, at his home city of Ludington,
Michigan. And it is understood that if
he had consented to run, the opposing
party would not run any candidate for
the office, and Mr. Brandt's election
would have been assured. Both part-
ies were backing Carl Brandt to clean
up the liquor situation that existed in
Ludington. Mr. Brandt is prominent;
in the civic and social circles of his
town and his election would mean
many reforms in the existing condi-I
tions of Mason County.
During his undergraduate days, Mr.
Brandt was active in University af-
fairs, as a member of the debating
teams, and as a representative of the
University in Oratorical contests. He
was a member of Alpha Nu debating
society and president of the Oratorical
Association, serving in the latter ca-
pacity during 1919-1920. He is a
member of Delta Theta Phi, law fra-
ternity, and also a member of Delta '
Sigma Rho, national honorary forensic
Mr. Brandt received his degree of
LL.B. from Michigan in 1921 and his
LL.M. degree the following year. After
receiving his master's degree in 1922,
ie resigned his position on the faculty
of the department of Public Speaking,'
to begin the practice of law in Mil-
waukee, Wis., in the offices of William
Morgan, Esq., a former Attorney Gen- r
eral of Wisconsin. In December, 1923,e
Mr. Brandt returned to the University t
and became an assistant in the Lawa
School faculty. Owing to the resigna-I
tion of Professor Immel, Mr. Brandt f
has accepted the vacancy thus causedI
and will take up his work this fall. i
Mr. Brandt has acquired an enviable
reputation as a teacher and it will i
prove an added feature of the Public
Speaking department to have him re-I
ume his teaching. His classes arec
lways filled to capacity, and their pop-I
ularity never decreases. le is a con-r
scientious teacher, whole-heartedly in-t
derest'ed in his work. And Mr. Brandtf
deals with his subject from the practi-I
cal point of view. During his previous
years as a teacher, he was in charge,
of the Michigan High School Debating
League. In that capacity, he was in-
strumental in developing the splendid
organization of that work inaour public
schools in Michigan. As a coach of
success and his teams have seldom
debating teams he has met with great
been defeated..
The University is to be congratulated
upon securing so able a successor to
Professor Immel as Mr. Brandt.

Last night witnessed the perform-
ance of Andrew Haigh, pupil of Josef
Lhevinne, the eminent pianist. The
uncomfortable heat prevented a large
attendance at Hill auditorium. This
proved unfortunate, because Mr. Haigh
found difficulty in adjusting his pedals
to suit the acoustics of the quarter-
filled hall.
The Prelude and Fugue (Bach) was
somewhat confused. "Andantino and
Variations" (Schubert-Tausig) proved
little better. Schumann's "Papillons"
and Medtner's Sonata in G minor
showed a gradual improvement, al-
though the left hand movements in
both were blurred.
Brahm's Rhapsodic (op. 119) and In-
termezzo (op. 118) marked the turning
point. Mr. Haigh exhibited the dainty,
light touch of his teacher. The two
Debussy numbers which followed
were very well executed. The dreamy
atmosphere of "Reflets dans l'eau"
was beautifully and clearly portrayed.
Lizt's "Sonotto del Petrarca" was still
better rendered.
The final number, Lizt's Hungarian
Rhapsodie No. 15, was capitally played.
Here Mr. Haigh caught the true Hun-
garian spirit. His wristwork was es-
pecially commendable. It was supple,+
enabling octaves to be played with re-+
markable ease and rapidity. The tor-
rent of applause gave proof of the au-
dience's appreciation. D. W. F.
Amerlean Authority Asserts Inter-
Allied Conference WHil Be t
London, July 23.-(By A.P.)-The o
inter-allied conference undoubtedly s
will be successful and the Dawes plan
will be given its chance to solve Eu- i
rope's economic ills, despite the pres- 1
ent differences between bankers and c
the conference delegates over guar- v
antees for the 40,000,000 pounds sterl- t
ing German loan, a leading American p
financier today told the Associated
Press before sailing home after hav- e
ing for several days been in the clos-c
est touch with conference proceed- p
This authority, who has followed the P
Dawes plan since its inception, de-c
clared there was no question among t
bankers regarding the existence ofa
ample guarantees which will insurer
the comparatively small sum required
for the service of the loan. The prob-r
lem is, he added, to reduce the poten-f
tial guarantees to definite forms whichI
w-ill stand as a solid basis of credit.t
Efforts to break the apparently ser-
ious deadlock which has arisen in the1
conference over the financial guar-
antees for the 40,000,000 pounds sterl-
ing loan necessary to put the Dawes
plan into operation today occupiedt
the entire time of the delegates, t
In the present impasse, the Amer-{
ican ambassador, Frank B. Kellogg,
has presented a proposal which is un-
der consideration. It is not concerned
with the manner of application of
sanctions to Germany.
It proposes that sanctions may not
be applied until recommendations forr
a default have been made by the1
agent general of reparations and thec
bondholders' trustee and also by five
members of the Dawes committee whoc
would be called in.

Prof. A. E. Wood Talks to Group on
Minimum Wage for Women
in Industry
Solution of the problem of the Philip-
pines lies simply in the adherence of
the United States to the principles she
has always followed in her foreign re-
lations, according to Dean Maximo M.
Kalaw of the University'of the Philip-
pines, who addressed the Institute of
Government and Politics yesterday. It
is in the fact that up to date the
American government has ignored
these principles to a greater or less
degree that the trouble lies.
"Far Eastern Relations" was the
subject of Dean Kalaw's lecture. He
stated that there was a general lack
of interest and information in Amer-
ica regarding the Far East, which has
contributed in part to the present back-
wardness of that part of the world.
Dean Kalaw began by tracing the
chief points of importance in the evo-
lution of the Far East of today. He
emphasised the point that Asian civil-
ization was the first in the world to
appear. During the last half century
or so, the attitude of the European
nations toward the Far East became
one primarily of exploitation, all the
powers striving to gain a foothold
here. During this time the United
tates secured possession of the Philip-
pines through the war with Spain.
Dean Kalaw said that the general at-
itude of this country toward the Phil-
ppines, while better than that of the
ther nations toward their possessions
till left much to be desired.
In closing he said that as regards
nterest shown by the public, the i-
ands were in a better state than this.
ountry, as 92 per cent of the eligible-
oting population turned out for elec-
ions, as compared with perhaps 50
er cent in this country.
Prof. T. H. Reed of the political sci-
nce department spoke at 2 o'clock
on dramatic elements in American
politics. Citing the recent oil scandals
and the 1920 issue of the League of
Nations as examples Professor Reed
commented on the odd psychology of
the American people, whom he char-
acterized as influenced by emotion
rather than by intellect.
Non-voting is not undesirable in
many cases, contrary to the general
feeling of alarm expressed by those
who would call attention to the fact
that many eligible to vote in the Pres-
idential elections fail to exercise this
Four reasons for this non-voting
were assigned by Professor Reed, (1)
intimidation, such as the treatment of
the colored race by the white race in
the south; (2) prevention, by illness
or out of town business; (3) protest,
which is abstention from voting on
an issue that is not agreeable and (4)
The remedy suggested by Professor
Reed is the very vital problem of
arousing the interest of the public in
its own affairs.
At 4 o'clock Prof. Arthur E. Wood
lectured on the minimum wage and its
connection with women in industry.
There is a real need for regulation
of wages, which is done in many in-
stances by legislation-in other cases
by trade unions-where they are pow-

erful enough. This minimum wage is
for the purpose of insuring for the
laborer at least a subsistence. It was
pointed out that women in trade do
not have the bargaining power that
men do, and women in particular have
a need for such a law.
