London, Aug. 7-(By A.P.)-The al-
lies and Germans have reached a com-
plete agreement on the mattes on
which defaults are to be declared Un-
der the Dawes plan.
The council of fourteen today adopt-
ed the full text of the report of the
first committee of the inter-allied con-
ference. The council will meet again
at 5 p. m. to take up the report of
third committee.
After this morning's meeting of the
big fourteen" of the reparations con-
ference a French spokesman said an
agreement was in sight by which Ger-
many would be allowed to address the
inter-allied reparations commission
should be adjudged in default under
the Dawes plan.
It was emphasized by this inform-
ant that this concession would be ac-
.corded Germany as a privileg'e rath-
ter than as a right and that the final
determination of Germany's possible
default must remain strictly an -al-
lied affair. On this point the French
spokesman was optimistic that the
Germans would accept the agreement
reached by the allied delegates among
themselves before the Germans were
invited to London.,
In a lengthy summary of the Ger-
man memorandum to the internationalf
conference, the diplomati correspond-
ent of~the Daily Telegraph today says1
that some of the objections raised byt
the Berlin delegates are serious, es-P

The German criticism in this re-
spect, he says, "goes amazingly 'far 1
and is wholly destructive of the con- t
cerns reached by the third commission t
and the conference."c

ent upon the right of appeal againstv

American Ambassador Kellogg hasr
written to the secretary of the inter-F
national conference, according to the i
Daily Chronicle, stating that the rep-F
resentatives of the United States are i
in accord with the French proposal
to hold a conference of finance min- t
isters in Pari simmediately after the 1
close of the meeting here.s
The proposal was contained in res- t
olutions submitted last Saturday for o
adoption by the allied delegates. The

world flight by the two remanln~

-was expected in military circles to-
day following official informatior
that the army advance party had lo-
cated a safe substitute base for ice-
locked Angiagsalik, which had bee
listed as the next termiihal.

west coast of Greenland. Nob only
Avill this afford a secure landing place
for the planes, the report said, but

airs be necessary.

It is considerably farther south
than the proposed base which the
army advance was unable to reach
because of unprecedented ice fields.
Ekaluit was said to enjoy longer per-
iods of open water and has been so
recorded in marine journals.
Belief that the flight would be re-
sumed shortly was strengthened by
other reports particular to the hygro-
praphic office that the ice conditions
around southern Greenland had meas-
ablely improved during the last 2
hours with accompanying moderation
in the' weather. A distance of 79
miles is estimated to be comprised in
the contemplated jump, well within
the capacitX of the planes.

approval was necessary from Wash-

T. Hawley Tapping, field secretary
of the Alumni Association has recent-
ly devised a new plan for securing
football tickets for members of the
Association, whereby all may be ben-
efited. The club members will be sav-
ed a maximum of trouble and the As-
sociation will be better adapted to col-
lect its fees.
All paid-up members may send their
checks along with receipt of dues to
him and he will obtain a block of seats
for the club as a whole. Each mem-
ber will be allowed four seats at each
game, both at home and on -foreign
fields. This does not mean they may
obtain tickets in other ways also. They
will not be allowed more than, the
given number.

The American Pharmaceutical As-
sociation has just issued a.,new year

macy and Mr. William J. McGill and
Mr. Leonard R. Wagener, both of the
College of Pharmacy.
