bravelĀ§ by crossing the Atlantic in
record time, were unreported and
more than 24 hours overdue here
this morning...
They had disappeared completely
as their red, white and blue mono-

The last heard of them was at
6:0,5 p. m. (Ann Arbor time) Wed-

Lake Wysztyt, near Hegelinge, on
the German-Polishborder.ninat .
was three hours and five minutes

with high hopes of greatly extend-

out to better.
Now they have fallen far behind
Post and Gatty. Thursday mid-

35 Republicans Support
$3,800,000 Measure De-

Aided by 35 Republicans, the Dem-
ocratic House today approved the
conference report on the Garner-
Wagner relief measure in the face
of definite veto threats by President
By a 202 to 157 vote, the report
was adopted and sent to the Senate,
where quick approval was expected.
Then it will go to the White House
to climax a heated controversy be-

Speaker Garner.
Undoubtedly the relief measure
will be an issue in the coming Pres-
idential campaign, when the Demo-
cratic Vice Presidential nominee
takes the stump against the Hoover-
Curtis ticket.

LONDON, July 7.-(AP)-Great

In a white paper read before the
House of Commons by Stanley Bald-
win, acting prime minister, the Gov-
ernment asserted Britain's farfiung
interests made it impracticable for
her to reduce the number of her
naval units beyond a certain point.
"But if there is a limit to numer-
ical reduction, it is still possible,
and highly desirable, to secure by
other means a large diminution in
naval armaments," Mr. Baldwin
The Government lined up with
Mr. Hoover by opposing air bomb-
ing, with reservations, and by point-
ing out that the British standards
of land disarmament already more
than cover the American aims The
Army has been cut from 259,000 in
1913 to 207,000, Mr. Baldwin said.

1,000 scape Summer
Automobile Restrictions
Many interesting facts may be
brought to light by a brief study
of the automobile registration
cards in the office of the Dean of
For example, unofficial esti-
mates state that more than 1,000
Summer Sessign students are
driving cars, exempt from the
provisions of the University auto .
regulations. Only about 250 have
obtained the recreational permits
which are issued to those not ex-
empted from the restrictions.
The oldest of the exempted
"students" driving a car this
summer is about 60 years of age
while a large number have pass-
ed the half-century mark. The
average age, according to an un-
official estimate, of the students
driving exempted cars is well over
30 years.
Walter B. Rea, assistant to the
Dean of Students, in charge of
the auto restrictions, said that
the depression has also had some-
thing to do with the lesser num-
ber of cars.
Expect Senate
Vote on Beer
Drys Threaten to Rule Out
3.2 Per Cent Plan on
Point of Order
WASHINGTON, July 7.--(AP)-
A bill to legalize beer containing 3.2
per cent alcohol by weight was
brought before the Senate 'just be-
fore adjournment tonight, and a
vote is expected tomorrow on a dry
attempt to rule it out of order *or
send it back to committees.
The beer "rider" to the home loan
bank bill was called up by its spon-
sor, Senator Bingham (R. Con.) at
the end of a day enlivened Eby a
spirited Prohibition debate. Senate
Prohibition supporters plan to make
a point or order against the Bing-
ham proposal on the ground that
it is unconstitutional, or to seek to
recommit it.
Advocates were not optimistic to-
night. In addition to those opposed
to legalizing the brew, several sen-
a'tors believes- that the proposal
should not come up as a "rider" on
the home loan bank bill.
From two Democratic Senators-
Glass, of Virginia, and Ashurst, of
Arizona-came the reiterated con-
tention that beer which is intoxi-
cating is fact would violate the Con-
stitution and that more evidence
than is now available will be needed
to convince them that a brew of 3.2
per cent alcohol is not intoxicating.
Vice President Curtis joined in
the 'laughter once, when Senator
Gore, Oklahoma Democrat, describ-
ed President Hoover is "now doing
a cake walk with a pitcher of ice
water on one shoulder and a little
brown jug on the dther."

(AP) - The French submarine
Promethee plunged without wayh-
ing under the waves of Cherbourg
Harbor while on a trial maneuver
today, taking down at least 66 men
in 150 feet of water, seven miles
north of Cape Levi.
Seven members of the crew, in-
cluding Lieut. Dumesnil, command-
er, were saved when they were
hurled from the deck into the sea
by the lurch of the vessel in its
unexpected dive. 'They swam until
they were picket up' by a fishing
Effort to locate and salvage the
craft with its imprisoned occupants
begun immediately, but were imped-
ed by violent currents prevailing
at the spot.
Needed Adjustment
Search for the sunken craft by
planes was handicapped by poor fly-
ing conditions. The submarine, in
service only two years, was endeav-
oring to- correct mechanical faults
when it sett out particularly for div-
ing trials.
The Ministry of Marine at Paris
said the Promethee had not been
in perfect working ordedr. Various
adjustments had been found neces-
sary before it could be deemed fit
for a long voyage. It was in an
effort to bring the machinery to
perfection that today's disastrous
trials had been arranged.
Officials Pessimistic
It. was estimated that 49 members
of the crew and 17 other meh, in-
chiding engineers and workmen,
went down with the ship. The cor-
respondent of the Paris newspaper
Le Matin estimated the victims at
Marine experts offered hope to-
night that the inen inside the sub-
marine might have found' time to
close the watertight hatches before
there was a fatal rush of the seas.

Griffin Sees Need for Greater
Flexibility inMonetary System


Social disorganization and unbal-
anced production, rather than over-
production and war-time waste, are
the chief causes contributing to the
present business depression, Prof.
Clare E. Griffin, dean of the business
administration school, said in a lec-
ture on the "Business Depression
and Some of Its Lessons" yesterday
Looking to the future, Professor
Griffin stressed the need for more
flexibility in the management of the
price system and pointed out that
this may be achieved by controlling

a general rise in prices. The release
of the Federal bonds for internal
improvements would bring about this
result, he said.
"We cannot sit back and let eco-
nomic forces alone take their way,"
he declared. "While inflation is ac-
companied with very definite dan-
gers, there are also very definite
dangers if we allow the present de-
flated condition to continue."
The present depression is peculiar
in that it effects more people be-
cause of the greater interweaving of
economic society. "We have learned
that the old virtues of thrift and

More than 200 applications have
been received ; from students in
search of part-time employment,
Miss Elizabeth A. Smith, in charge
of the student employment division
of the office of the dean of students,
said yesterday. Less than one-tenth
of them have been placed.
Fewer board jobs have been avail-
able than during the regular session,
she stated, and the odd jobs which
normally come to the office have
been almost entirely lacking this
summer. "Only three have been re-
ported this week," she said. Very
little clerical work has been sent to
the office.
Miss Smith called attention to the
change in the employment rates for
student help. Wages are now 40
cents an hour for anything less than
three hours, and 35 cents an hour
for three hours or more.
