Statement Of Police Chief Alleviates
Sting Of Insinuation Which

MEXICO CITY, July 24.-The Union
of Revolutionary parties, in which the
agrarians are rperesented, has decid-
ed to petition President Calles to
eliminate all members of the labor
eliminate all members of the Labor
party from the administration.
The union was not satisfied with
the resignations of Luis Morones,
minister of labor; Celestino Gasca,
chef of ordinance supplies, and Ed-
uardo Moneda, who withdrew from
the government after agrarian leaders
had asserted that labor leaders were
the "psychological authors" of the
assassination of Gen. Alvaro Obregon.
Deputies Under Fire
The union also decided to request
the Obregonista blocs in both houses
of congress to expel the Laborite dep-
uties and senators. A committee was
appointed at a meeting Monday to find
a means to obtain the dismissal of
those state governors who were either
members of the labor party or were
guilty of "serious outrages."
The meeting was characterized by
a radical change of attitude on the
part of the agrarians, who instead of
threatening civil war counseled ser-

of the clergy as a whole.

PARIS, July 24.-The ministry of
marine announced today that the
flight to New York of the French sea-
plane La Fregate, (the Frigate-Bird),
now at Horta, Azores, has been post-
poned for several days. Lieut. Paulin
Louis Jerote Paris wants to overhaul
the motors of the machine.
Radio messages from the plane dur-
ing the flight to Horta from Brest
said that all worked well throughout.
It has been reported, however, that

who hope to complete a round-trip
between Brest and New York by sea-!
plane, waited today while minor re-
pairs were being made to their plane.
Their plane, La Fregate, was hoisted
on the breakwater so that it could be
groomed or the next leg of its flight
to Bermuda. If they find their fuel
supply sufficient on reaching there,
the flyers, Lieut. Paulin Paris, Relief
Pilot Marcel Marot and Radio Oper-
ator Louis Henri Cadon, will continue
on to New York without stopping.

Selected By President C. C. Little
Chairmanship Of University
College Committee


Following a consultation with the
deans of the various schools pnd col-
leges, President Clarence Cook Little
announced the appointment of Lewis
M. Gram, professor of structural en-
gineering, as chairman of the execu-
tive committee of the University qol-
Provisions for the executive com-
mittee were part of the University
college plans passed by the Board of
Regents at its spring meeting. Al-
though no chairman was appointed
at thlat time, subsequent confirmation
of Professor Gram's appointment was
received from the Regents by Preni-
dent Little. The new chairman pre-
sided at a meeting of the committee
yesterday 'noon at the Union.
Considerable assistance in the work
of the executive coimmittee of the
University college is being given by
Prof. C. S. Boucher, dean of the col-
leges at University of Chicago, where
a university college plan is in opera-
tion. Professor Boucher delivered an

formance. All the 'aerceness and
power of the she-devil, atnd all thej
struggle that went on within her bar-
baric soul in its effort to reach a
fuller happiness were clearly por-
trayed in Miss Kelly's performance.
She was best perhaps in the banquet
scene, where she provoked ThorAf
beyond endurance, then laughed at,
his useless death and at Ornulf's
grief, but was magnificent in every
.act of the play. It was a gripping and
tremeindous piece of work that she
treated her audience to last evening.
The third factor was the power of
the Ibsen drama itself. In "The Vik-
ings" the passions and emotions of
these primitive souls are brought into
play in a gripping story. One should
not look for careful shades of char-
acter here. Instead we have the two
great conflicting passions that rule t
Sigtird'es life; his fine friendship for t
Gunnar and his love for Hjordis, com- t
bined with the character of this she-.C
devil make up the play. The char-
acters are primitive men, in whomr
these emotions 'are foremost, and one
would not be satisfied were mytholo- I
gical heroes more clearly defined. One t
thing in the play seems difficult to
reconcile. This is the tragic discov-
ery, at the conclusion, the Sigurd is
a Christian, and that he and Hjordis I
are destined to be separated for ever.
Christianity is totally out of keeping
with the whole spirit of the play, aind
its introduction weakens the galn
effect. c
The performance of the Rockfordv
Players, though generally satisfactory,
at times lacked finish. Miss Kelly v
excepted, no one distinguished him-
self by ;great acting. On the other
hand no one was poor. The illusion
of reality was not quite attained, and
at times the slowness became op- z
pressive. The magnificence of MisszA,

climax of the last act however, mores

On Exhibition In General Library

An exhibition entitled "Fine Modern
Printing" has been put on display in
the General Library, illustrating
some of the choicest printing that has
been done. Several of the books have
been loaned by Regent James Beal
for the exhibit. The material repre-
sents the work of many presses, in-
cluding the Kelmscott, Dove, Danial,
Village, and the work of Bruce Rog-
The Kelmscott Press, founded by
William Morris who created a new era
in fine printing, adopted the heavy
faced type and returned to an almost
forgotten style of decoration. In di-
rect contrast to this ornate embellish-
ment is the ;Dove Press. The type of
this press is modeled on. that of
Janson, but is systematized and less
irregular. The characteristic quality
of the books is their entire absence
of decoration except the plain but
beautiful initials. These are usually
colored in vivid tones. The Dove Press
has been said to approach very close
to absolute perfection in press work,
composition, and page placement.
The colophen was adopted by the
Dove Press. This page at the end;
of the book gives all the information
usually found on a title page. Many
of the books printed by the Daniali
Press were the writings of friends of
the Rev. C. . O. Danials, the founder.
The editions were limited to a few
copies. The first issue was in 1874 1
but the Press was unknown outside
a small circle until the Kelmscott had
established the vogue for fine print-
The printers mark of the Danial is
a representation of Daniel in the
lions den. The mark of the Golden
Cockerel is a (mall gold cock. The

Peah Tree Press so called from the
the name of the cottage which housed
the press is a spreading fruit tree.
The Village Press has the anchor
with two dolphins. This press is the
most important American private
press, and was founded by Mr. and
Mrs. Goudy. Mrs. Goudy sets the
type for most of the books and binds
many of them. Mr. Goudy designs
and casts the type.
Since the inauguration of fine print.
ing the Riverside Press in 1899, Bruce
Rogers has become known as one of
the leading designers of printing type
and ranks among the first type-
graphers in the United States today.
His customary mark is a thistle in
the form of the Aldine anchor with
his initials. One of his works on dis-
play is Drinkwaters Proserphone
which is unusual with gold initials
and medallion. Another of Roger's
works is Geofroy Troy's Campfleury.
In planning this book which occupied
the printer's time for twelve years,
each page of the original manuscript
was photographed and the designs on
the photograph worked over to elimin-
ate imperfections in early printing.
This book was the center on the
Graphic Arts Exhibit in New York.
