lecture on the summer series this
afternoon at 5 o'clock in Natural

"The Development of the Skyscra-

typical American building influenc-

"Up to a certain point," said
Professor Lorch, "American archi-
tecture followed more or less the
trend of European design. With'
improvements in steel construction,
however, the way was opened for
the super-skyscraper, which is a
distinctively American contribu-
tion. Much higher structures and'
an entirely new architectural cre-!
ation has been the result."
The subject of city planning will
be involved in the discussion and
various problems which have arisen
during the skyscraper's evolution
will be discussed by Professor
Lorch. The lecture will be illus-

BERLIN, June 24- Dr. Gustav
Stresemann, German foreign min-
ister, in a vigorous reply to severe
nationalist criticism, told the
Reichstag today that Germany
would not stand for installation of
the commission in the Rhineland
as a part of its evacuation.
He answered nationalist objec-
tions to the newly evolved plan by1
declaring that it made Germany's
burden definitely lighter than the
Dawes plan and that this was the
only question at issue.
Then further to take the wind
out of the sails of the nationalistsi
he announced that President von
Hindenburg as well as the cabinet
stood behind manifestations this
week against the treaty of Ver-
sailles, especially the clause ack-
nowledging Germany's guilt in the
The foreign minister repeatedly
declared to the nationalists that
when they were in power they also
could not do otherwise than to ful-
fill Germany's international obli-
The nationalist policy of first
proving that the Dawes plan was
unworkable, he said, would have
led to the destruction of the in-
dustrial middle class and would
have been accompanied by conse-
quences as dire as the Ruhr con-
troversy of 1923.
Despite his recent illness, the
foreign minister was in excellent
condition. He used a manuscript
as the basis for his address, but
frequently departed from it by re-
plying to questions from the floor.
When the debate was finished
for the day the nationalists intro-
duced a motion of no competence
against the foreign minister, de-
claring that his five years in the
post had been a failure.
Count Westart, leader of the na-
tionalists, declared' that the Young
plan would enslave future genera-
tions and that what made it worse
was the fact that it would be ac-
cepted by Germany instead of be-
ing forced upon her as he said the
Dawes plan was.

Suit for divorce from his wife, Mrs.
Katherine Day Little, was filed in
Washtenaw County Circuit Court
last week by Dr. Clarence Cook

University of Michigan, it was
learned tonight.
Papers connected with the suit
were withdrawn after being re-
corded and it was impossible to

disclosed that 3,049 students had
registered, as against 2812, last
year's number, or an increase of
The large decrease in the enroll-
ment of the School of Education
was explained by Dean Kraus as
being due to the large registration
of teachers in the Graduate school,
which this year showed an in-
