Washington Officials Take Up Prob-
lem of Dispatching New Plane
to Wade
Hull, England, Aug. 4-(By A.P.)-
Lieutenant Locatelli, the Italian avi-
ator who is attempting a flight to the
polar regions, arrived here this ev-
ening from Amsterdam, Holland.
Aboard U. S. S. Richmond, Aug. 4-
The "Boston," the airplane piloted by
Lieut. Leigh Wade in the American
army world flight, was abandoned
early this morning. The plane was
taken in tow by the Richmond yes-
terday after Lieut. Wade and his me-
chanic, Sergt. Arthur M. Ogden had
been forced down at sea by engine
trouble while negotiating the hop from
Kirkwall in the Orkneys to Iceland.
The Richmond's effort to salvage the
wrecked plane was abandoned when
the machine, which had been gradu-
ally filling while being towed in a
heavy sea, capsized. Seeing the hope-
lessness of attempting further to
save it, the officers cut it adrift.
The Richmond then turned about
and made for Reykavik, Iceland.
Chagrined Over Fate
Lieut. Wade on board the Richmond
was chagrined over the fate that had
brought his plane to grief and stop-
ped the participation of himself and
Sergt. Olson in the flight when it was
so near a opnclusion, but he took the
disappointment well.
Washington, Aug. 4.-The question
of despatching another army airplane
to Iceland to permit Lieutenant Wade
whose plane was wrecked to continue
the journey was taken up today by
army and naval officials.
No decision was announced, officials
waiting for more come complete de-
tails of the accident which forced the
abandonment of the flight by Wade.
Fifteen delegates from the Univer-
sity will attend the annual student
conference of the national Y. W. C.
A. which will be held for 10 days be-
ginning Aug. 15, at College camp, Lake
Geneva, Wis.
The Michigan delegation is larger
this year than in previous years due
to the fact that facilities at the camp
have been enlarged in order to ac-
commodate the increase in number of
women desiring to attend.
The conference will be devoted to
a study and discussion of the various
problems which confront the, women
in colleges and universities today. All
of the western schools will be rep-
resented at the conference and dele-
gates will exchange campus ideas and
standards with one another.
More than 10 foreign countries were

represented at the conference last
year, including: France, Germany,
Russia, Persia, China, Japan, and
South Africa. The morning hours of
the camp will be devoted to open
forums and lectures while the after-
noon will be given over to sports and
recreation hours. Several trips in-
cluding one through the Yerkes ob-
servatory of the University of Chica-
go and a trip around Lake Geneva,
which is supposed to resemble the
Sea of Galilee, will take up the aft-
ernoons at camp.
Miss Mary Ross, secretary of the
University Y. W. C. A. will attend the
conference with the group of Michigan

At the time of his death Mr. Town-
send was serving as a member of the
international boundaries commission.
He was appointed to that post fol-
lowing his defeat in the bitter cam-
paign that resulted in the election of
Senator Woodbridge N. Ferris. He
has been prominent in the public and
political life of the state for more than
20 years.
Mr. Townsend was married to Miss
Nannette B. Loomis of Jackson who
survives him in March, 1921. His first
wife died in 1920. He was 68 years
Charles Townsend won his way up
from the ranks by unceasing appli-
cation and industry. Born and reared
in poverty, he picked up scraps of an
educationas sbe could get them be-
tween seasons of work. Studying law
at night and teaching school by day,
he gained admission to the bar at the
age of 39 and then after seven years
of successful practice was elected to
the House of Representatives and
subsequently to the Senate.
He was born on a farm in Concord,

Joseph onrad
Bishopbourne, Eng., Aug. 4.-Lov-
ers of literature today mourned the
passing of Joseph Conrad, eminent au-
thor of sea tales, who died at his
home here yesterday in his 67th year.
Jospeh Conrad was born Dec. 6.
1857, of Polish parentage. His early
life as a sailor and as a sea captain
formed the background for his en-
thralling stories of the south seas.
Conrad visited America last year in
response to repeated invitations of his
publishers. He was not well at the
time and was compelled by his ill-
ness to curtail his stay to about one
month. The author had intended
coming to America in 1915, but the
war interfered with his plans.

Mr. Harold Wheeler, librarian of
the Hackley public library at Mus-
kegan, and president of the Mich-
igan Library association, spoke yes-
terday morning at the University Li-
brary on the subject of "Library Pub-
licity." Mr. Wheeler's lecture was di-
vided in two parts in which he dis-
cussed the reasons for desiring pub-
licity and the methods of getting it.
He stated that the people of a com-
munity should be taught to konw the
resources of an institution which they
supported, and that a library would
secure better support by advertising
its facilities..
Exhibits in store windows, at local
fairs or industrial exhibitions, or in
banks are among the best methods of
obtaining publicity. Other methods
are the use of stories given to news-
papers, the printing of library notices
on the backs of telephone or gas
bills, the sending of special lists of
books to people interested in certain
lines of industry, and the use of pla-
cards and bulletins in public places. a

Lecture About
Electric Ships
"The Electrified Ship" was the sub-
ject of the illustrated lecture given by
Prof. B. F. Bailey at 5 o'clock yester-
day afternoon in Natural Science audi-
In order to illustrate the recency of
this application of electricity, Pro-
fessor Bailey asked the audience to
imagine time speeded up so that man
could review the entire history of the
world in 24 hours. On such a scale,
the use of electricity would not ap-
pear until the last ten seconds, he
Professor Bailey explained that
there is no ship on which the prim-
ary power is electric. The storage
battery is far too heavy to be easily
stored. This is why the electric au-
tomobile is not a great success. By
an electrically propelled ship, we
mean one in which the primary is the
steam engine, furnishing electric
power in a roundabout way.
On battle ships it is of great im-
portance that the ship be efficient at
crusing speed. The use of electric
propulsion has extended the rage of
action 40 percent.
Professor Bailey stated that all the
battle ships and cruisers of the fu-
ture will be electrically propelled. At
the present time there are more than
20 American battle ships with electric
Following the lecture, pictures il-
lustrating the progress of different
types of engines were shown.

Attendance On
Summer Tours
D Decreases
The regular summer excursions have
not been as well attended this year
as they have in former years, accord-
ing to Carlton F. Wells who has been
conducting them. Although Mr.
Wells could not state any definite
reason for -this falling off in attend-
ance he did trace part of it to the
fact that there has been a great in-
crease in the number of graduate
students in Summer school whose
school work demanded so much of
their time that they were unable to
take advantage of the excursions.
The two geological excursions, one
to Niagara Falls and the other to
Put-in-Bay, have had larger attend-
ance this year and if the attendance
at these excursions is averaged with
that of the others the result will be
about the same as in former years.
Mr. Wells said that he believed the
excursion plans would be revised be-
fore next summer. He did not be-
lieve that any new places would be
added to the list although he did
think that the list might be shortened.
A number of the places visited, this
year were not seen to full advantage
because the plants were not operating
With full forces.
Mr. Leifur Magnusson, director of
the Washington branch of the Inter-
national Labor office, will give a lec-
ture to Prof. A. E. Wood's class in so-
ciology at 8 o'clock tomorrow.
Mr. Magnusson will speak on the
economic basis of the international
labor organization, the political situ-
ation which called it into being, the
work of the international labor con-
ference and will give an outline of
the activity of the international labor
office itself. He will also deal with
the present and future problems con-
fronting this office, its competence
and its research work.
After two and a half years of ex-,
perience withthe organization at
Geneva as English editor of the In-
ternational Labor Review and 10
years of research work with the A-
merican department of labor, Mr. Mag-
nusson took up his position as di-
rector of the Washington branch of
the International Labor office on Jan-
uary 1 of this year.
Dean W. L. Brag, of Manchester
University, and Mrs. Bragg will leave

Question of Extension of Delivery in
Kind and Financial Maneuvers
to be Knotty
London, Aug. 4.-(By A.P.)- Ger-
man opposition to the program for
launching the Dawes plan' which the
inter-allied conference has already
to lay before Chancellor Marx and
his colleagues at noon tomorrow, is
not expected to be directed in the
main against the actual plan arrived
at in the Downing Street conference
room, but rather against an issue
which has been kept entirely outside
of the conference, that of military ev-
acuation of the Ruhr.
Two Points of Attack
According to high American au-
thority, there are but two points in
{ the program to which the Germans
can raise even a technical objection.
One is the extension of delivery in
kind of coke, dyes, and coal, beyond
the first Versailles arrangement. The
other is arbitration of the, question
with the commission whether financi-
al maneuvers are taking place in Ger-
many to restrict the functioning of
the Dawes plan.
One technical ground, both of these
objections would have to be consider-
ed, according to the American expert
who is considered to have the greatest
knowledge of the Dawes plan. Ex-
tension of deliveries in kind beyond
1930 were anticipated neither in the
treaty nor in the Dawes plan. Un-
der the new regime, however, such
deliveries is to be paid for by the
funds bf the agent general and not by
Germany as heretofore so that the
Oer man objection could hardly he
justified, according to the American
Ruhr Settlement Necessary
Similarly, technical objection could
be raised on the other point but this
would be an admission that financial
maneuvers to frustrate the provision
of the Dawes plan are going to take
place in Germany.
Despiter theabsence of moral
ground for objection to the work of
the inter-allied conference, the Am-
ericans believe these two points will
be raised by Dr. Stressemann, the
German foreign minister unless an
agreement is-reached between the
Allies and Germany on the question
of military evacuation of the Ruhr.
If a satisfactory settlement is forth-
coming on this issue, the belief pre-
vails that the Germans will not men-
tion other technical issues.
Under the auspices of the Wash-
tenaw County Farm bureau, the first
rural women's camp of Michigan is
now being held at Big Silver Lake,
Dexter township. "Health, efficiency,

and happiness for self, home, and
community through better habits of
living, better housekeeping practices,
and wholesome recreation" is the aim
of this next experiment. The subject
matter presented will deal directly
with farm and home problems, pre-
sented by experienced teachers in a
practical and interesting way.
Among thhi special speakers are*
Prof. John R. Brumm, who will speak
on "Education and Life";Mrs. Edith
Wager, director of the State Farm
bureau; Mrs. Dora Stockman, Mich-
igan State Grange; and Mrs. Louise
Campbell, M. A. C.
