Bryan Backs Ralston On Coven*io
Floor As McAdoo Voting Takes
Marked Slump
New York, July 1.-r(By AP)-On
the 27th ballot in the democratic nat-
ional convention tonight there was no
nomination. The leaders of the ballot
stood this way: McAdoo, 413; Smith,
316.5; Davis, 128.
On this ballot McAdoo lost 2.5 votes,
Smith gained 5; Davis gained 3.5. The
net result was that Smith touched a
new high water mark; McAdoo touch-
ed a new level, while Davis remained
about near his high' mark.
A conference of leaders in the North
Carolina delegation with convention
officials on the right of the delegation
to cease voting as a unit for McAdoo
agreed late today that under the state
laws and the rules of the convention
the individuals of the delegation may
vote their will, regardless of the pri-
mary result.
Chairman Max 0. Gardner of the
North Carolina delegation announced
after the conference that the dele-
gation would "stick with McAdoo for
a few more ballots."
A number of the delegates express-
ed themselves favorable to John W.
Davis and a break in the North Car-
olina ranks early in the night ses-
sion was freely forecast by members
of the delegation, including some of
these who hade been parties to the
Senator Samuel M. Ralston, of In-
diana, was lomming up tonight as a
possible compromise candidate for the
Democratic national convention. When
the convention after 12 ballots more,
making 27 in all, recessed, John W.
Davis of West Virginia, had made such
gains that William Jennings Bryan
openly declared war on the West Vir-
ginian and went about the convention
floor working against him. The con-
vention was to resume tonight.

Margin In Maine

Hard Year Faces Wolverine
Gridmen Is Present Prospect

Prospects for a successful gridiron
season at Michigan next fall, while
good, are not considered as certain
as last year. Loss of eight letter
men, four of them stars of the first
magnitude, and the h6avy 1924 sched-
ule will undoubtedly be greatly felt.
Indications are that Michigan will
have a strong, well-balanced team,
with considerable power. But it will
lack the brilliant stars of the 1922
and 1923 elevens. Several men will
be available for each position, and
keen competition is promised for the
regular berths.
Of the eight letter men lost by grad-
uation, four were great stars. Rlipke
and Blott were. All-American play-
ers, and Muirhead and Uteritz were
among the best gridiron stars Mich
igan has had. In addition Van der
Voort, Neisch, Vick, and Curran, all
valuable men have graduated. Their,
loss gives Coach Little a big problem
this fall.
Of the letter men of last year the
following will be available this fall:
Babcock and Kunow at tackle, Brown

at center, Slaughter, Steele, and Haw-
kins at guard, Marion at end, and, in
the backfield, Captain Steger, Rock-
well, Grube, Herrnstein, and Miller.
Of the A.M.A. men, Parker, Wither-
spoon, Palmer, and Merle Baker will
be on hand.
Seven of the most promising mem-
bers of last year's strong freshman
squad will not be available. Bowles,
Cook, Stuart, Arnold, Baer, Hamilton,
and Morrison are among those lost by
eneligibility. There are a number of
strong contenders, however, from the
freshman team who will bid for pos-
itions this fall.
Considered by positions, the 1924
squad lines up well. At center Coach
Little will have Brown, who was
Blott's understudy last year, and Mad
sen, 190 pound freshman from Oak
Park. Others in line are McIntrye,
McMillan, Coventry, and Jones. At
guard, Slaughter, Steele, Hakins and
White are veterans. They will face
stiff competition, however, in Keller,
a Waite high product, Dewey, Ullman,

Halt Work On Theatre As Nearby
Wall Threatens To Collapse;
Search Continues
Cleveland, July 1.-(By AP)-The
list of known dead in Northern Ohio's
tornado Saturday has reached 98 with
indications that this number probably
will be increased, according to compil-
ations made by The Associated Press.
Lorain, O., July 1.-(By AP)-De-
spite the unwavering belief of several
city officials and military authorities
that all of Lorain's dead are not ac-
counted for, the list this morning re-
mained the same as last night, a tot-
al of 72. But the Red Cross in check-
ing the dead and wounded, found 1'
persons unaccounted for.
Work of clearing the wreckage of
the State theater, under which offici-
als believe are a number of bodies was
stopped at 9 o'clock last night because
of the danger that an adjoining four-
story brick wall might fall.
Efforts were concentrated in digg-
ing through' the lobby of the theater,
where three floors from an apart-
ment above dropped. The body of a
woman was taken from there Sunday
morning and it is thought a young girl
who had been visiting her and who is
missing, still is in the debris.
The efforts of thousands of wreck-
ers and relief workers with hundreds
of trucks and wagons has not begun
to scratch the surface as far as remov-
ing the millions of tons of wreckage
is concerned.
Fifteen hundred Ohio National
Guardsmen are in possession of the
city. The detachment of Cleveland
policemen which had been here
since Saturday night returned home
last night.I
Mayor Hoffman said Lorain will not
be repaired, but rebuilt. "We plan to
erect one of the most modern cities
in Ohio after the ruins of the old are
cleared away," he said.

University Books Donated by Regent
Hubbard Depict "Imaginary
Saratoga Spring, N. Y., July 1.-
The "imaginary voyage" as a literary
theme is no where better i llustrated
than in the large collection of books
recently presented to the University
of Michigan by Regent Lucius L. Hub-
hard, Eunice Wend, curator of raret
books at the University library, toldf
the C'0 fdogue Section of the Ame ican
Library association today.
The "imaginary voyage," the speak-
er said, is as old as the Odyssey andt
as modern as the novels of H. G.t
Wells,. It encompasses the purely fan-
tastic travels that are the basis of
such works as Cyrano De Bergerac's<
Voyage to The Moon, the undergrounds
adventures of Niels Klim, and Swift's
"Gulliver's Travels," the scenes of
which are laid for the most part on1
this earth.
Realistic voyages form another larget
group, in which it is difficult to dis-t
cern truth from fiction. The speak-1
er called Defoe's "Robinson Crusoe"<
the "shining example of this form."1
This work brought many imitations,
both in England and the continent
and was followed nearly a centuryf
later by Johann Wyss famous "Swiss
Family Robinson."1
The "voyage" volumes, the speakerf
said, are written for amusement, for
instruction, for deceit. for satirizing1
existing conditions (as in Gullivers1
Travels), an( for "philosophic con-
sideration of the ideal commonwealth.',
Pro.. Robert M. Wnley, of the phil-
osophy department, was speaker last
night at the second meeting of the
Men's Educational club, held in the
Michigan Union. e spoke to thel
group on the problems of education
that are facing teachers today. Com
paring the 1lrofessional class of teach-
ers to Sampson, who was bound by
bonds of brass and ground in his
prison cell, rthofessor Wc Iey went1
on to say that the bonds that boundt
educators in the present day were the
limits of our human knowledge, and
the vast development through which
that knowledge has passed in the last
The one hundred inventions which
most affect our lives today, the speak-
er declared, were unknown before the
middle of the 18th century. It is the
necessity to adapt ourselves to this
vast change which faces the men and
Women of this day. Only a severe
financial crisis will relieve the head-;
long pace at which we are traveling.1

Explains Dawes' Stand, And Need Of
Change In Economic Structures,
of Germany
The Dawe, plan for German repar-
atian problenr; is the best tling that
has been made, according to Prof. C.
E. Griffin of the Economics d part-
ment in his speech yesterday after-
noon on the "Economics of Interna-
tional Payments with Special Refer-
ence to Reparations" in the auditor-
im of the Natural science building.
His speech was entirely an explan-
ation of the Dawes plan with regard
to Germany and how her economic
structure ought to be changed to meet
the necessary requirenuents of the re-
parations. The Dawes plans is the
best proposal put forward so far, he
said, because of the changed point of
Thlj point of view, Prof. Griffen
went on to explain, was the one of the
business man instead of the previous
views that dominated the Allies in
their dealings with Germany. Dawes
takes into consideration the economic
plan and builds this idea up into a
sound and constructive plan for the
The Dawes plan does four things,
(1) establishes an international bank
for the storing of money, (2) Mort-
gages German industries and rail-
roads, (3) establishes a moritorium
for two or three years and, (4) sep-
arates the two problems, viz. the col-
lection of the debt and the payment of
it to the Allies.
Complicated as, is the collection
of the debt from the Germans, the sec-
ond problem, that of paying this debt
to the Allies, is the really difficult one
confronting the allies and Germany.
For Germany to pay the debt, it will
mean the development of a large ex-
port trade with other nations. As her
former field is gone, this means a de-
velopment of new fields and invasion
of them by German firms. Despite
this handicap, the plan has an advan-
tage in that the business is left in the
hands of the German business men
and not in government hands.
Another angle to the Dawes plan
is that it means that the Allies will
have to take an interest in German
trade and help it grow, which means
a reversal of their former policy of
trying to have the golden eggs from
the goose after killing it. It will also
mean that they will have to aid Ger-
many get back on her feet so that
she can pay back her debts to the
The best thing about the Dawes
plan, concluded Prof. Griffin, is that
it treated Germany more as a debtor
rather than an enemy.

Dean Discusses
League Drive
For Building
Dean Jean Hamilton is enthusiastic
over results obtained in two and a half
months' intensive campaigning for the
League building and endowment fund,
she said Monday before she left for
her vacation.
"The first proposal for our great
campaign", she stated, "was made at
the annual Detroit alumnae luncheon
on March 1. On March 3 the nucleus
of what was to be the national cam-
paign held its first meeting, and on
March 8, plans having been decided
upon and policy formulated, the ac-
tual work began."
$606,000 Pledged
For more than two years the League
had been working on the fund for the
women's center on the campus with
the result that $53,000 was pledged
when the drive started this spring.
"But now we have $606,000 pledged,"
Miss Hamilton said. "Of that amount
$70,834 is in the bank for the League,
so that we have in cash more than as
much as had previously been pledged!
during the long campaign. Add to
that the amount that will come in on,
July 1 when most of the first pay-~
ments on memberships are due, and1
you will realize the immediate suc-
cess of the spring drive."
The dean went on to say that the
$207 asked of every Michigan woman
was simply the figure obtained by di
viding $1,000,000, which is the sumi
needed to begin building, by the num-
ber of women that the campaign com-t
mittee could reach. That numberi
was determined by sending out ques-
tionaires to 9200 women; with in six
weeks 4628 of them had been return-
ed. They showed what Michigan wo-c
men are doing and consequently weres
used almost entirely for campaign pro.-.
Average Membership is 40 Per Cent t
"The average membership for citieso
throughout the 12 districts organiz-c
ed is 40 per cent," Dean Hamilton not- t
ed. "The whole state of Delawarew
ranks 167 per cent; nine cities, includ- t
ing Monroe, Grand Rapids, Green-
ville, Grand, Haven, Saginaw,tHolla{d, i
in Micihgan, and Kansas City, Miss-
ouri, are 100 percent to 167 percentw

75 percent to 100 percent of theirs

on to fill out the probable fourth' of.the t
fund that cannot be paid by Michigan d

left the University are now available a

ing given three years to pay their

Preparing Men For Useful Service
School's Responsibility To
Speaking on tfie subject "Atheetcs
in Relation to Endurance and Public
Health", Coach Fielding H. Yost, dir-
ector of Intercollegiate athletics, last
night continued the series of lectures
being given in the University this
summer. Mr. Yost told how man-pow-
er is developed for the various ath-
letic teams and the qualities that go
to make up the best men.
Coach Yost said, "Consciously or un-
consciously, the thing for which we
are all striving is happiness. Happi-
ness comes from success and the on-
ly way to succeed is to give service.
Service i the mother of reward."
Tells Physcal Education Ideal
He then outlined the qualities that
constitute ability, reliability and en-
durance. "Ability consists of think-
ing, remembering and imagining," Mr.
Yost said, "And remembering is the
thing that we too often have trained
in us at the expense of thinking and
From the development of man-pow-
er Mr. Yost proceeded to give his con-
ception of the 'ideal program of phy-
sical education for a university. He
said, "Only when we have every stu-
dent engaging regularly throughout
he year in the right kind and amount
of motor activity will we have dis-
charged our full responsibility to the
ax payers who send their boys to us
with the expectation that at college
hey are prepared for a life of useful
ervice." Mr. Yost's program would
nclude an allotment of time by each
tudent in the University for exercise
which would be compulsory.
Mr. Yost enumerated what he con-
iders to be our immediate pressing
needs in the line of physical educa-
ion. They are: a large and up-to-
late gymnasium with at least three
wimming tanks; improvement of our
[0 acre tract for intramural athletics:
bout 50 more tennis courts; increased
eating capacity of football stands; a
iniversity golf course.
Need Consistent Athletics
Some statistics to show the number
of students pa'rticipating in athletics
and physical exercise at the present
time were given. About 5,770 take
part in intramural activities while in-
tercollegiate and freshman sports
claim 1,344. Mr. Yost said, "The pro-
gram at Michigan reaches in some
way approximately all the students
but the difficuly lies in het fact that
with most of them, participation in
physical exercise is not, regular. Un-
fortunately facilities are not available
to accommodate all the students that
would like to take part in athletics
and games. Many will participate for
a week or two and then drop out be-
cause of lack of room, encouragement
or proper direction.
"If we are to have students that will
be physically fitted to lead their most
useful lives we must have more
grounds and buildings, a more com-
plete program-anda larger staff for
physical education and athletics."
