noon for a cabinet conference and the
negotiations of the Inter-allied con-
ference here will be virtually suspend-

Action by the French cabinet was
necessitated by the fact that the ques

chief obstacle to any final agreement

be in disagreement on this important

Donaldson Gives
Talk on Sculptor'
TIhe final lecture of the summer
series was given yesterday afternoon
in the Natural Science auditorium by
Prof. 1. M Donladson, of the depart-
ment of fine arts. Professor Donald-
son spoke on "Augustus St. Gaudens,
SThe speaker gave a history of Am-
erican sculpture to form background
for his discussion of Augustus St.
Gaudens, mentioning the various for-
eign influences and their importance
on 'sculture in, this country. People
are much less appreciative af sculp-
tor than of painting, Professor Don-
aldson said, a fact which is due large-
ly to the lack of understanding of
this phase of art. He continued by
sketching the life of the famous
sculptor, his early years, education,
travel and study under foreign art-
Lantern slidts were used to show
some of St. Gauden's works. Several
different views of his statue of Lin-
coln, which stands in Lincoln Park,
Chicago, were shown and compared
with other artists conceptions of this
figure. However the statue of St.
Gaudens, Professor Donaldson be-

Classes in All Colleges Will Open
on September
Registration for members attend-
ing the University for the current year
1924-1925 will begin on Tuesday, Sep-
tember 16 and will last for the usual
period Hof one week, according to an-
nouncement from the Registrar's of-
fice. Classes will start one week af-
ter the registration period, on Tues-
day, September 23-two days earlierl
than last year.!
The number of students for next1
year is problematical at present, but
there is certain to be an increase over
last year. The enrollment for 1924-

over the totals for the preceding year.

Failure Of U.S. To Keep Up In Air March Probed
7: " : J .*
The congressional aircraft probe committee in session. Left to right: Re presentative Patrick B. O'Sullivan;
Rep. Florian Lampert, chairman of the committee; Rep, Frank B. Reid; George W. Lewis, Paul Hen.
derson, Admiral William A. M offet, General Mason M. Patrick.

Washington, Aug. 8.-Why is the
United States, foremost in the devel-
opment of aeronautics, lagg ng behind
in the world race for air supremacy?
A congressional committee is endeav-
oring to find out.
Aero authorities say that the con-
gressmen won't have to plumb very
deep to find the answer to the query.
It's simply that congress, in its efforts
to be economical, has consistently re-
fused to provide sufficient funds for
the proper development of the air ser-
vices of the United States.
The committee, including Reps.
Florian Lampert, chairman, and Pat-
rick B. O'Sullivan and Frank B. Reid,
is braving Washington's torrid weath-
er to hear the opinions of the men
who have aero development in thel

,United States most at heart. These
are such men as Rear Admiral Wil-
liam A. Moffett, head of the navy's
bureau of aernautics; Major General
Mason M. Patrick, chief of the army
air service; Paul Henderson, who as
secand assistant postmaster general,
has chharge of the air mail service,
and George W. Lewis, executive of-
ficer of the national advisory commit-
tee on aeronautics.
While the United States is thrilling
the world with its exploits of being
the first to circumnavigate the globe
by air, the army and navy are woeful-
ly lagging behind France and Great
Britain, and perhaps Japan, too, in
the development of "wings." Our air
services are all right as far as they
go, but their reach is pitifully short,

say authorities.
Right now the army air service is
giving a measure of training to its re-
serve air officers. What in? Obsolete
and almost useless planes.
Great Britain and France are spend-
ing many more millions for airplanes
than congress has ever been asked
for., And this money is not "sunk,"
it returns dividends, for air equipment
and personnel can be kept in trim in
commercial service. It isn't like put-
ting it into battleships and submar-
ines that turn into Junk every few
years without ever having earned the
country a dollar.
Aero authorities hope that this con-
gressional probe will cause congress
to give more serious attention to this'
problem in its next session.

efforts Will be Made to Locate Bases
In Greenland For Use of
Washington, Aug. 8.--(By A. P.)-
Redoubled efforts will be made to lo-
cate a place for emergency bases in
Greenland for the use of the! Amer-
ican round-the-world fliers, it was
said today by the army air service in
answer to suggestions that the re-
mainder of the flight might be'post-
poned, until next year because of- in-
creasingly unfavorable ice conditions.
Ice apparently has prevented entry
into Angnegsalik, on the coast of
Greenland first selected as the term-
inal, and threatens the withdrawal
of the naval convoys.
No Necessity
Informed that Rear Admiral Thom-
as P. Magruder, heading the naval
guard on the Atlantic route had call-
ed a conference of the pilots to dis-
cuss the advisability of discontinuing
Vthe attempt at Reykjazik, Iceland,-
without reaching a final decision of-
ficials of the air service declared no
necessity for abandoning the flight
was yet apparent in any report re-
ceived here.
. "It is expected that the world
flight will not be farther delayed,"
a statement issued from aviation
headquarters said, "and within a
short time the officials though it pos-
'sible to further safeguard the route
by locating a floating base on the
edge of the ice midway between the
Jceland and Greenland terminals.
Hope of Completion
Admiral Magruder's precautionary
\steps were approved at the navy de-
partment where it was explained they
,had been taken on his own respon-
sibility. The admiral's responsibility

Former Daily Man Describes
Beginning Of Michigan Daily

Michiktitl Wai. the first school east of
New England to publish a daily pa
per, according to J4ge Harry D. Jew-
ell, '91L, of Grand Rapids, who was
a member of the board dt editors of
the original campus Daily. nJudge,
Jewell, was in Ann Arbor to visit
his wife, Mrs. H. D. Jewell, who is
here at the university to complete a
course begun 32 years ago.
The "U of M Daily" as it was first
known, was born out of the strife be-
tween fraternity men and independ-
ents, according to Judge Jewell. Dur-
ing the school years of 1888 and 1889
there was a great deal of rivalry be-
tween these two factions. The inde-
pendents claimed that the fraterni-
ties were in control of all of the cam-
pus activities, such as the publications
and oratorical associations. All of the
jpublications then appearing on the
-=ampus were either weeklies or mon-
thlie % and the independents felt that
they we7e not sufficiently represented
on these e.ganizations At that time
all campus is u hinged on the fra-
ternit=-independe*t question.
In the spring of 1.. the independ-
ents effected an organiz-4,Wp of their
own aId were quite success;:t Jn hav-
ing all campus elections termi at* in
their favor. Flushed by their sucC'e9$,
the independents determined to pub-
lish a campus newspaper, their first
issue to appear at the beginning of
the fall term. Petitions were circu-'
lated among the students of all theE
schools. Following is a copy of the
petition circulated by Judge Jewell
As.istudntno f thA Law school:

"Hereby we agree to subscribe for
a New Independent newspaper, for the
year 1890-91 to be published by the
Universityestudents, at a subscription
price to be hereafter fixed by the
board of editors, not to exceed $2.00
or price of other College papers."
Sufficient pledges were secured to
warrant publication of the paper the
following fall. At the end of the
spring commencement of that year,
however, the fraternities organized
and promised a tri weekly paper for
the coming fall.
During the summer of that year the
tentative board of editors of the inde-
pendent paper made a canvass by let-
ter and interview of as many of the
people who had signed the petitions
as they were able to get in touch with.
The result was a decision to make the
new publication a daily.
On September 29, 1890 the first num-
ber of the "U of, M Daily" made its
appearance. Solicitors were at the
railroad station to obtain subscrip-
tions from the students as they ar-
rived. The members of the original
business and editorial staff were:
Managing editor, H. B. Shoemaker,
'91, who is now a lawyer at Phoenix,
Ariz.; assistant managing editor, A. H.
Covert, '92, who died in Detroit in
1917; business manager, M. B. Ham-
mond, '91, who is now a professor of
ec-omics at O.S.U.; assistant busi-
ness manager, W. B. O'Neill, '91, who
died in Washington in 1893; and R.
W. Doughty, '92, who is now a New
York lawyer.

Lionel Ames
Stars In Clever
Tarkington Play
What was undoubtedly the most
successful performance given this
Summer Session was "The Intimate
Strangers," by Booth Tarkington
which was presented last night in the
University hall by the classes in Play
Production. Many times the players
were forced to stop by the glase of
laughter and the rounds of applauseI
that swept the house. The occasionsI
for one of these was the announce-{
ment by Mr. Wm. Ames that he was
collecting first editions of the Bible.
Another reason for the popularity
of this play was its wurer diction
which caused at least a part of thes
audience to prefer "The Intimate St-
rangers" to "You and I" which was
given last night.
*The lion's share of the hoors went
to Lionel Ames, 24, who played the
part of Johnny White. All the sup-
porting cast did exceptionally fineA
work, and seemed more happily sel-
ected than the previous one, for each
one seemed admirably suited to his
part. The ponderous snores of Mr.,
H. L. Ewbanksadded to the effective-
ness of the first act.j
Miss Bellamy gave a very satisfac-
tory rendition of the energetic flap-
per while Miss Starr's portrayal of the
old fashioned girl was delightful.
For the benefit of those who were
unable to see the performance of 'You
and II". it wil be repeated by the same
cast tonight at 8 o'clock.
Last week the University of Mich-
igan Alumni club of Battle Creek had
a big rally and by amending the laws
became an actual chapter of the Mich-
igan club.'
Golf and tennis tournaments were
staged and the winners were present-
ed with solid tin loving cups two feet
high. Also a baseball game was
played, the engineer and literary stu-
dents combining against the medicine
and la walumnae. The engineers
proved victorious under the captaincy,

Entire United States and All For-
eign Countries Send Men and
Women Here
All forty-eight of the states are rep-
resented at Michigan during the reg-
ular year and forty two other parts
of the world as well.
Michigan leads in the total number
of students in all colleges of the Un-
iversity. Last year there were 7,833.
Ohio comes next with 805, then New
York with 616, Illinois with 501, Penn-f
sylvania with 362, and Indiana with
340. New Jersey sends the next larg-
est number, 124. Twenty seven of the
states send less than thirty students
while Nevada, at the end of the list,_
sends but one. California, however,
sends as many as 49, and Texas, 31.
Nearly every country and island of
the world is represented by at least
one student. China leads with 98.
Ninety four come from Ontario, 36
from South Africa, 23 from Japan, 21
from therPhillipines,16 from India, 13
from Porto Rico, and 10 from Hawaii.
No other country has more than sev-
en students here so far. Asia Minor,
Siberia, Greece, Siam, and Saskatche-
wan are some of the other places rep-
resented. The majority of these stu-
dents are in the School of Literature,
Science and the Arts and the School'
of Architecture and Engineering; 101
in the former and 113 in the latter.
Th4re are 23 in the Medical School
and 41 in the Dental College.
The representation by colleges of
students from Michigan is as follows:
3,976 in the School of Literature,
Science and the Arts, 1,196 in the
School of Engineering and Architec-
ture, 416 in the Medical School, 49
in the College of Pharmacy, 229 in the
Law School, 254 in the Dental College,
300 in the School of Education, and
424 in the Graduate School. The to-

month at Wequetonsing, in northern
Michigan, will return to Ann Arbor to-
day. He plans to be in his office in
Tappan Hall next Monday so that
graduating seniors and other students
may consult with, him concerning cre-
dits and the status of their work.
Dean Whitney is also making prepar-
ations for the opening Vf the new Un-

Mr. Earl Fleischman is the director
of these plays and the' classes in stage-
craft have assisted, with Prof. R. C.
Hunter as director of the settings.
Mr. Fleischman originated the idea
of a play festival after the manner
of the strolling players of Shakespear-
ean times. At the beginning of the
session, he presented the idea to the
students of presenting such .a play
festival and theybecame enthusiast-
ic, and arranged a program. They
will simply pick out a pleasant spot
and with the simplest of stage pro-
perties present their interpretations
of the various plays.
Faculty and friends, who have cars,
are invited to attend all the perfor-
mances and others as many as possi-
ble. The outdoor performances offer
the opportunity of experimenting with
a different sort of make-up and the
twilight program, at the island, is an
innovation in play productions.
Under the direction of Prof. R. C.
Hunter of Ohio Wesleyan University,
selections from "The Merchant of Ven-
ice" will be presented by the class in
Shakespeare Reading Tuesday evening
in University Hall.
In order to give each student an
opportunity to interpret an important
part, the cast will be changed in each

lected for the recital.

'.)-The world flight of the American
'army aviators who have already com-
pleted 21,000 miles in their effort to

in danger of being abandoned today
owing to the ice conditions off Green-
land, which aresdeclared to be the
worst in 20 years.
Lieut. Lowell H. Smith who is in
command of the flight and Major
Crumrine, of the American army air
,┬žervice, were called into consultation
by Rear Admiral Thomas 'G. Magru-
der on board the cruiser Richmond.
The conference was called to consid-
er the question of calling of the flight
for this reason. Both Lieutenant
Smith and Major Qrumrine argued
that there were still hopes of com-
