Special to Summer Michigan Daily
Lima, Peru, July 29.-The Univer-
sity of Michigan's party of students
which is touring South America for
the purpose of study and to promote
a closer understanding between the
Latin republics and the United States
was given the warmesoof welcomes
and extended every possible -courtesy
by the President, government officials
and students of San Marcos Univer-
sity while in Lima, the capital of Pe-
ru. From the head of the govern-
ment down the Peruvians outdid
themselves in the friendly treatment
shown the Northeners and set a new
mark for their already famous South
American hos'itality.t
President Leguia, who is pro-Unit-'
ed States in policy, asked that the
Michigan students be his guests dur-
ing their short stay in Lima. His
own launch was sent out at Callao to
meet the men on the "Santa Elisa."
It carried the official delegation of1
greeting which was composed of sev-
eral distinguished men: Dr. Alberto
A. Giesecke, Director General of Ed-
ucation, Dr. John K. Breedin, Direc-
tor of Examinations, Dr. Luis H. Bour-
oncle, head of the Normal School, Dr.
J. S. Garcia Rodriguez , a former
Michigan man, George A. Salazan, and
C. Alberto Arca Parra, representing
the students of San Marcos Univer-
Visit Oldest University in Americai
The majority of the afternoon af-
ter arrival was spent in a tour of the
famous University of Lima and in
calling upon President Leguia and
other government officials who asked
that their best regards be carried back
to the people of the Unied States.
A visit was also paid to Ambassador
San Marcos was established in 1551
and is therefore the oldest seat ofi
learning in the two Americas. The
students there, many of whom can
spe#k English, are proud of their an-
cient heritageand enthusiastically es-
corted the Michigan men through the
many picturesque patios and build-
ings that make up the University.
They regretted that time did not per-
mit the visiting students to remain
longer and exchange views with them,
and later in the evening a delegation
was selt to announce that special
general assembly was to be held the
next day in honor of the University
of Michigan. At this time messages
of good-will carried by the party
from Presidet Marion L. Burton, of
Michigan, were read to the students.
Visit Other Points of Interest
Besides visiting the beautiful old
cathedral of Lima and the monastery
of the San Franciscan monks-fam-
ous for its cloister and decorative tile
work-the party visited the Inca mu-
seum of Sr. Victor Larco-Herrera.
This is one of d&ie finest. collections
of relics from the Incan and pre-In-
can ages found any place in South
America. The remains found by the
expeditions sent out by Sr. Larco have
thrown startling light on the little
known civilizations which preceded
the Spaniards in Peru.

After a luncheon at which the
American consul was present, the
Curtis E. Pierce, '82L, a wealthy
millionaire lawyer of Bay City, died
yesterday when he drove his closed
coupe into the Saginaw River from
the dock at the foot of Sixth street.
He had recently returned from the
University Hospital in Ann Arbor,
where he had recovered from an ill-
ness and he seemed to friends to be
in the best of spirits.
Mr. Pierce was 68 years old, had
traveled considerably, having gone
twice around the world, and had al-
so been active in Bay county politics
and business.

"Julius Caesar"
Given With Great
Success By Class
"Julius Caesar" was presented yes-
terday evening at 8 o'clock in lUniver-
sity hall by the class in Shakespear-
ecan reading, under the direction of
Prof. R. C. Hunter of Ohio Wesley-
an University. The players made no
claim to hjistronic perfection, but gave
the play in recital form.
In contrast to the movies and many
1 productions, the audience had an ex-
cellent opportunity to use their imag-
ination, as the prdperties were of the
simplest and the costumes were of
today. The good lighting effects,
however added much to the spirit of
the thing.
As the aim of the recital was to
give each member of the class some
important Shakespearean character
to portray, the cast was changed in
each scene. Thus we could compare
the respective actors and see the dif-
ferences of interpretation, which was
a novel experience. The Casius of
Act II was outstanding, as was the
Caesar of the same act. Anthony's1
wife was likewise well portrayed in
the orchard scene. The fact that there1
was no difficulty in following the
characters through the scenes al-1
though they were played by differ-
ent students showed the strength of1
the production as a whole.
party of Michigan students reembark-
ed on the "Santa Elisa" where fare-'
wells were said. The continuance of
their voyage around South America
takes thetm to the following cities:j
Cuzco, La Paz, Valparaiso, Santiago,
Valdivia, Buenos Aires, Montevideo,
Santos, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro,
Trinidad and the Barbados.
First Expedition of Its Kind
This expedition is the first one of
its kind and marks a step forward in
Pan-American relationships. It was
originated under the theory that so-
cial contact between the young blood
of the two continents will build up
stronger ties of friendship for the fu-
ture. Two instructors of Spanish at
Michigan, Guillermo D. Herrera, son]
of the Columbian ambassador to the
United States, and Carlos Garcia-Pra-
da, of a prominent family in Columbia,
organized the party, which is made
up of elemen men in all. The other
members are as follows: Myron J.
Sherwood and Myron L. Sherwood,
Marquette, Mich., Francis L. Tilden,
Douglas Flood and Norman Vissering,
Kenilworth, Ill., Cass S. Hough, Ply-
mouth, Mich., Robert Kohler, New
York, Frederick Colby, Detroit, and

made to order in the style of the per-
iod represented by the architecture
of the building.

terior decorations will bear out the
general Tudor atmosphere, the dining
hall being finished with imported oak

London, July 29-(By A.P.)-For the
first time since the interallied con-
ference assembled, the French dele-
gates tonight indicated a willingness
to surrender under certain con-
ditions: their right to separate action
against Germany in case of a repar-
ations default under the Dawes plan:.
If the allies cannot unanimously
agree whether a flagrant default has
occurred, France is willing to lead
an arbitration board on which there
will be experts of the original Dawes
commission to decide the question.
One question is that Germany's pay-
ment in goods be linked with the ques-
tion of default and that France ac-
quire new rights relating to payment
in kind which are outside the pres-
ent reading of the Versailles treaty.
These and other ' conditions the
French experts are embodying into a
proposal which they hope will end
the ten days conference deadlock.
Since yesterday's convening which
was featured by the timely interven-
tion of Col. J. A. Logan, the Ameri-
can observer, which the delegates to-
day as having saved the conference
from possible breakdown, the French
delegation has been working to co-
ordinate with Col. Logan's suggestion
with ideas of their own in an effort
to produce a formula which will solve
the problem of how default under the
Dawes plan is to be declared and
what penalties the allies'intend to in-
flict therefore, and at the same time
satisfy the international bankers who
will be asked to recommend a forty
million pound loan to investors in or-
ier to launch the Dawes project.
Whether these new French propos-
als in which there will be, a depart-
ure from the unyielding stand on sep-
arate action, will be acceptable to the
other delegates' cannot befully de-
termined until the draft is laid before
the experts. But the American ob-
servers who have an intimation of the
conditions, France expects to impose
in view of her surrender of her jeal-
ously guarded theoretic right to act
as she deems necessary, if Germany
does not live up to the Dawes plan,
are. not overhopeful that a solution
has been found.

There are to be several additions
to the University School of Music
faculty this coming year. Mr. Guy
Maier will become the head of the
piano department, taking the place
made vacant temporarily by Albert
Lockwood, who will spend the year
in Europe traveling and writing. Mr.
Maier's coming to Ann Arbor is an
event of more than ordinary signific-
ance. He is a young musician who
has made an international reputation
as a concert performer of extraordin-
ary attainment. Mr. Maier is a teach-
er of wide recognition-having had
many years experience in Boston and
New York City. Besides private teach-
ing in Ann Arbor Mr. Maier will.con-
duct classes in the principles of inter-
Mr. rrison will be the head of the
vocal d partment for this coming
year, succeeding Mr. Wheeler who re-
cently resigned. Mr. Harrison left
Ann Arbor five years ago and since
then has won great distinction in
Chicagoas a teacher and public per-
former. He has sung annually with
the Appolo club, the foremost Choral
society of Chicago, besides being so-
-loist at the Evanston Methodist
church. As a teacher he has had un-
der his guidance, a great many pro-
fessional musicians.

Intimate and artistic details of Ae-
gean civilization were revealed in
well-selected words that enriched the
subject, by Prof. J. G. Winter of the
Latin, department, who spoke at 5 o'-
clock yesterday in the Natural Science
auditorium on "Aegean Civilization
and the Homeric Poems." The works
are so fine that they explain them-
selves and an understanding of the
background is not necessary; yet those
who made up one of the most num-
erous and appreciative audiences of
the summer felt that they had been
transported to the pleasantest realms
when they viewed the historic sites.
Until 890 the background for these
masterpieces was enshrouded in
darkness; but during that year Schlie-
man, a German archeologist, began
his momentous excavations which
gave the world new information re-
garding these treasures. At the pres-
ent time many clay tablets are un-
deciphered which will undoubtedly
reveal many of the details which are
yet a mystery.
Crete was first considered as the
center of Aegean culture, and many of
the scenes from the palace at Cnos-
sus were shown. That building was
revealed as of gypsum with wooden
stairways, and can be distinguished
from the palaces of the mainland by
its open court which is in marked
contrast to the megara of the latter.
The 'typical Minoan column tapers
from top to bottom, thus providing
another distinct characteristic. The
art of that period is quite novel and
its effects are always daring. A not-
