Hobbs to Lead
Friday's Tour
To Put-in-Bay
Geological Formations of
Lake Erie Island to Be
ExplainedDuring ,Trip
Prof. William H. Hobbs, head of
the geology department, will lead an
excursion to Put-in-Bay next Fri-
day. Reservations for the trip must
be made by 5 o'clock Thursday night
in room 9, University hall. ,
Put-in-Bay is one of a group of1
islands in Lake Erie about sixty miles,
southeast of Detroit. Geologically,
Put-in-Bay is of interest because ofs
its rugged limestone shoreline, its
surface evidences of glaciation and7
its caves. Of the three major caves,
Crystal is noted for its crystallized
formations, Peary for a lrge under-
ground lake and Mammoth fo' its
peculiar rock formations. The island
derives its name from the fact that
Oliver Hazard Peary "put in" therea
after his victory over the British in'
the War of 12. A large mon snent
resembling the one erected in honor1
of Washington in the nation's capi-
tal commemorates Peary's victory.
The structure was dedicated last
year. The islands are also noted for
their vineyards and large shipments'
of grape juice- are made to various
parts of the country each, fall. Large
number of tourists visit Put-in-Bay
each year. Two steamers make daily
trips from Detroit and Cleveland..
Special buses will convey the ex-
cursion party to Detroit leaving Ann
Arbor at 7:30 o'clock Friday morn-
ing, going directly to the Put-in-Bay
dock at the foot of First street. The
steamer will leave for the island at
9:30 o'clock, the water trip lasting
three hours. The party will return
to Detroit at 10:15 o'clock and will
be met by special buses arriving in1
Ann Arbor at midnight.7
The total expenses for the trip
wil amount to five dollars, including
round trip bus fare, steamer passage,
admission to caves and meals on the

In Washington
WASHINGTON, July 23.-(AP)-
On the cushions, on the rods, and on
the broad highways, members of the
Bonus Army today were heading
home, leaving only a fraction of their
original strength in the capital.
Frank T. Hines, administrator of
veterans' affairs, said today that only
about 3,500 remained for officials to
worry about, and kind - h e aor t e d
Washingtonians to feed. -
Hines expressed the opinion that
at no time had there been more than
8,000 'of the bonus-seeking veterans
here, but police by actual count on
praade daysset the number at 11,-
700. Leaders of the army claim d
h total of 22,000 at the peak.
Most of the departing guests went
on "the plush," presenting railroad
tickets furnished by the Veterans'
Administraiton. Others scorned to
become "softies" and went out the
way they came, on top of and under-
neath boxcars.,
Col. U. S. Grant, director of public
parks and buildings has asked the
District of Columbia authorities to
clear the men out of the parks and
property under his jurisdiction.

Borah Wants
World Parley
For Revision
Of War Debts
Reduction or Cancellation
May Be in Interests of
People of United States,
Idaho Senator Declares
But Obligations Are
Just, lie Maintains
Says Conference Should
Also Deal with Disarma-
ment, Re-Establishment
of Gold Standard
WASHINGTON, July 23.-(AP)-
Senator Borah of Idaho proposed to-
night an immediate world conference
to consider revision or cancellation
of war debts entirely with a program
for settling other pst-war problems.,
Borah, chairman of the powerful
Senate Foreign Relations commit-
tee, delivered his message by radio,
proposing the world conference as
a follow-up to the Lausanne repara-
tions agreement, which he said was
more of a "harbinger of peace and
the hope of humanity" than the
Versailles peace treaty.
Borah painted the Lausanne agree-
ment as the "most imprtant step
taken since the war looking to re-
storation of confidence in political
and business affair5:"
Sees Gain in Sacrifice
He added that if the policies ini-
tiated at Lausanne were carried for-
ward "there will
come a time when
it will be distinctly
to the interest of
the people of the
United States "to
again consider the
question of war
B o r a h warned,
however, that re-
vision of the debts
should not be pre-
dicated on t h e
reparations agree-
BORAH ment alone.
He said the debts were 'just debts
and the only reason for urging a re-
duction or . cancellatino of them
would be "in the interest of the peo-
ple of the United States."
Wants Treaty Revised-
"I entertain the belief," he said,
"that the cancellation of the debts
in connection with, and as a part
of, a program including the settle-
ment of other war problems, would
have the effect above indicated."'
Borah proposed that the world
conference should have authority to
deal with reparations and debts, dis-
armament, re-establishment of the
dold standard, the stablization of
silver in the Orient and possibly
other questigns.
