League Completing Plans
For Large Attendance;
3,000 Guests Last Year
Ann Arbor's social season will go
into full swing next Friday night
when the deans of the various
schools entertain the Summer Ses-
sion students at a reception in the
League. Over 3,000 attended the
event last year, and Miss Ethel A.
McCormick, dean of women, esti-
mates that the attendance will be
larger this year.
President Alexander G. Ruthven
and Mrs. Ruthven will return to
Ann Arbor from their summer
home especially to attend the gala

The rubberneck wagons, prosily
disguised as ordinary Blue Goose
buses, rolled ub at 8 o'clock. There
were 60 of us who piled in and
waited, as one always waits on ex-
cursions, while the conductor fin-
ished talking to the bus drivers,
Andy Gump (who happened along),
and an unidentified man who
seemed to have some authority with
the bus company. But the wait was
short and the morning long, and it
was scarcely eight-fifteen when we
moved contentedly over the bumps
toward Ypsilanti.
On the whole the society looked
promising. There were three young
men whom one could bet were fresh
from high school, a sprinkling of
older graduate students, and even a
hand-holding couple (who may have
been married, but just). But a
comfortable crowd from any point
of view. Later, when they regis-
tered, there were names from Salt
Lake City, Atlanta, New York, Ne-
gaunee and many even wilder places.
By noon, after a couple of reload-
ings and considerable jiggling of
Blue Goose springs, faces were fa-
miliar. By five, after several more,
and meanderings through the Art
Institute, we were positively friendly.

To Acquaint Students
The reception marks the opening
of social activity for the summer as
it provides a means for students to
become acquainted with one another.
On account of the short time that
the students remain in Ann Arbor,
this party is held as soon as possi-
ble after the opening of school to
get the social life on the campus
Plans have been going ahead for
the past two weeks to prepare for
the large crowd that is expected to
attend the affair, Jean Cowden,
president of the League, Harriet
Hunt, Helen Townsend, Florence
Eby and Barbara Schuker, compos-
ing the executive coinittee on so-
cial affairs, have been working with
Miss McCormick and Miss Noble on
the arrangements.
To be Held in Ballroom
The reception will be held in the
ballroom,, Grand Rapids room, din-
ing room and concourse. Dancing,
cards and refreshments will be the
main features of the evening's en-
Because of the capacity crowd
that attended the party last year, it
has been necessary to make the rul-
ing that no one will be allowed to
enter the ballroom without a part-
ner. In order to prevent conges-
tion, the dance floor will be cleared
after each dance.
Introductions will take place in
the Grand Rapids room and a com-
mittee will be in charge of intro-
ducing students to one another.
"All students on the campus are
cordially invited to attend the recep-
tion," Miss McCormick said. "We
want everyone to come whether he
has a partner or not. One of the
main purposes of this party is to get
the students acquainted with each
The receiving line will begin at
8:30 o'clock, Miss McCormick an-
nounced, and dancing will continue
until 1 o'clock.

the Fourth of July. There was
plenty of room to see the trees and
get an occasional glimpse of the
river. We did not recommend pic-

fishing on the Canadian side seemed
active, the buffaloes and polar bears
firm, and both the boat and yacht
clubs financially sound. The buf-
faloes may have begun to moult by
this time-we really weren't too
near. The Fisher building where
the cafeteria made some excess
profits at our expense, was remark-
ably undisturbed by our 60. Some
of the inmates rudely broke into the

scarcely a gasp-apparently all of
us had become accustomed to the
breath-taking speed of the library

"the good will station," did its best

told funny stories and, recognizing
the superior educational background

tion of 1895. We all jingled our sil-

Five-Power Plan Makes
Cancellation Dependent
On Revision by U. S.
LAUSANN. Switzerland, July 2.
-(AP)-Germxany has refused to
accept any proposal linking up the
settlement of reparations with ad-
justment of allied debts to the Uni-
ted States, iarwt soper
ted States, it was reported today.
The proposal, which has been dis-
cussed for several days, was ad-
vanced by France, Great Britain,
Italy, Belgium, and Japan, with
France being the prime advocate.
It would call upon Germany to
back a bond issue of 4,000,000,000 to
8,000,000,000 marks (approximately
$1,000,000,000 to $2,000,000,000), part
of which would take the place of
reparations payments and the rest
used for the economic reconstruc-
tion of Europe.
Demands Reduced
In negotiations during the last few
days the amount of this bond issue.
which would be put out by the Bank
for International Settlements, is un-
derstood to have been cut to 4,000,-l
000,000 marks.
Chancellor Franz von Papen con-
that Germany could not agree to
post such a bond because of the
form of the services on private debts.;
He explained that one-fourth of
Germany's short-term obligations
are owed to American bondholders.-
The link between reparations and
debts to America would be accom-
plished under the five-power plan
by a "safeguarding clause" which
would make elimination of repara-
tions payments conditional upona
Washington's agreement to revise,
U. S. Opposes TieupI
The Washington Government hasl
stood firmly against any such tieup'
between reparations and debts.
There were reports tonight that
the German delegation to the Lau-
sanne conference had asked that
reparations payments suspended un-
der the Hoover moratorium be writ-
ten off for good, and that they had
demanded removal of Part VIII of
the Versailles Treaty, which deals
in detail with reparations.
Overanuxiousness a
Loses Jor Inglis
James H. Inglis, senior in the lit-
erary college and one of Ann Arbor's1
most enthusiastic Smith supporters,
was so anxious to meet the former;
New York governor that he almost,
knocked the famous gentleman over
and failed to see him.
Inglis, who attended two sessions
of the Democratic convention last
week, visited the Congress Hotel
headquarters in search of Al Smith.
Being in somewhat of a hurry, he
ran into a gentleman coming out'
the door of his headquarters, apolo-
gized hurriedly, and continued his
search. The gentleman was Alfred
Emmanuel Smith. -

Roosevelt's Partner

Nominated by Unanimous
Vote as General Tinley
Withdraws; Tammany
Joins in Stampede
CHICAGO, July 2.--AP)-A rug-
ged, two-fisted T e x a n, Speaker
John Nance Garner, was selected
today by the Democratic convention
as the running mate to Franklin D.
His overwhelming choice placed a
strong national Democratic ticket
before the American people.
A popular candidate for the Pres-
idency himself, it was he who made
it possible for the New York gover-
nor to receive the nomination on the
;fourth ballot by releasing the ninety
votes pledged to him by Texas and
Back of him, in the house, the sil-
ver-haired and ruddy-faced veteran
has 30 years of service through three
of the most interesting decades in
United States History.
He became speaker last December.
Speaker Garner was nominated by
a unanimous vote while Governor
Roosevelt was flying here to accept
his nomination as president, There
was a mighty demonstration when
his name was placed before the con-
vention by Rep. McDuffie of Ala-
bama and even the Tammany lead-
ers and others who had stood by
Smith to the last joined in the Gar-
ner stampede. The only other can-
didated nominated, General Matt-
hew A. Tinley, of Iowa, withdrew his
name a few minutes after it was
presented and all others to whom
votes had been pledged in state con-
ventions made seconding speeches.

Summer Session students will
be given an opportunity to see for
themselves how the new Ford cars
are made, and how one of the larg-
est automobile plants in the Uni-
ted States operates, on the third
summer excursion. This trip to the
Ford plant will take place Wednes-
Students intending to make the
trip should place their reservations
at the Summer Session office, room
9, University hall, before 5 o'clock
Tuesday. The party will meet at
12:45 o'clock Wednesday in front
of Angell hall, returning to Ann Ar-
bor at 5:30 o'clock. The cost of the
trip by bus will be $1.00, but stu-
dents providing their own transpor-
tation need no tickets.
During the two hours the Univer-
sity party will spend at the River
Rouge plant, the motor assembly,
plant, the final assembly line, the
open hearth furnacees and the roll-
ing mill will be insoected. These
parts of the plant provide an oppor-
tunity for observing the typical
phases of the Ford industrial tech-
nique: extreme specialization of la-
bor, the continuous conveyor-belt
system, and large scale production.
A tour will also be taken in mo-
tor buses past certain other units
of the plant-the ore-unloading
docks, the coke ovens, the great cen-
tral power plant, and the foundry.

Outlines Program
To Help Jobless
Reduction of Government
Expenditures and Tariff
Revision Are Included
In His Plans for Relief
(Associated Press Staff Writer)
Proclaiming his plans for an intense
campaign on the "main issues of the
economic situation, Gov. Franklin D.
Roosevelt personally accepted the
Democratic nomination for Presi-
dent late today with the declaration
to the national convention that its
platform suited him one "hundred
per cent."
As the convention itself had done
by resolution while waiting for him
to arrive by airplane from Albany,
he invited dissatisfied Republicans
to march in the attack on the Hoo-
ver administration between now and
"The Eighteenth Amendment is
doomed," he cried with his eyes
glinting, as he congratulated the
cheering delegates for having had
the courage, fearlessly "to pledge re-
peal of the prohibition amendment."
He did not mention modification of
the Volstead act to allow beer and
wine, which the platform called for.
Promises Relief Program
Without going deeply into details,
he promised a program aimed to
alleviate distress and unemployment,
restore the farmers' purchasing
power, slash government expendi-
ture drastically, and adjust tariff in
the interests of the people.
After the overwhelming selection
of Roosevelt last night, a turbulent
parade of the states welcomed that
choice. He was actively seconded by
the Smith block of states and Tam-
many, which held out to the last for
Alfred E. Smith to top the ticket,
but Smith himself was missing.
Taking the defeat to heart, he left
for New York without waiting to
hear Sen. Walsh of Montana for-
mally notify his rival f the vic-
tory that was his.
HIge Crowds Greet Arrival
Huge crowds greeted Roosevelt at
his arrival, after a long trip buck-
ing head winds.
Referring to the tradition that he
broke in coming to the convention
at once to accept the nomination,
Gov. Roosevelt asked that it be con-
sidered symbolic of his intentions "to
be honest and to avoid all hypocrisy
and sham."
Decrying radicalism, the governor
called the Democratic party by tra-
dition "the bearer of liberalism and
of progress."
At the same time that he invited
Republicans to break away, he
warned "those nominal Democrats
who squint at the future with their
faces toward the past, and who feel
no responsibility to the demand of
the new time, that they are out of
step with their party."
Urges Liberal Thought
"Ours must be a party of liberal
thought," he said, "of enlightened
international outlook, and of the
greatest good to the greatest num-
ber of our citizens."
"Now it is inevitable that the
main issue of this campaign should
revolve about the clear facts of our
economic condition, a depression so
deep that it is without precedent in
modern history. It will not do mere-
ly to state, as do Republican leaders
to explain their broken promises of
continued inaction, that the depres-
sion is world-wide. That was not
their explanation of the apparent

prosperityof 1928. The people will
not forget the claim made by them
that their prosperity was only a do-
mestic product manufactured by a
Republican President and a Repub-
lican Congress. If they claim fra-
ternity for the one they cannot deny
fraternity for the other."
