Some Consider Wilhelm Alone Respon
slble fior Acts of German
London, June 30.-Steps have been.
taken by the Allies to insure the re-
tention of the former German emperor
within Holland until such ,time as
they may need him to answer for his
crimes. The Dutch government has
been impressed with' the necessity of
keeping a close watch on him so as
to prevent any attempt at escape.
According to a despatch from Brus-
sels, the former German crown prince
escaped from the island of Wieringen

The German peace signers, Her-
mann Mueller and Dr. Johannes Bell,
arrived at Berlin early Monday morn-
ing and were received by large crowds

Washington, June 30.-Conficting
views mark the receipt here of the
news that the former German chan-
cellor Dr. Theobald ,von Bethmann
Holiweg is willing to assume full re-
sponsibility for the acts of the Ger-
man government. Many international
law experts hold that the former em-
peror alone is responsible for his own
acts and those committed by his sub-
Secretary of State Lansing .on the
other hand has always maintained
that the former kaiser could not be
held to personal accountability,
It is not expected that Holland will
surrender the former emperor willing-
ly under extradition proceedings, and,
since the Allies have not as yet con-
sidered using force to take him, he
will probably be tried by the Allied
tribunal without being present in per-
Prof. H. R. Cross, whose lecture to
be given at 5 o'clock this afternoon,
was to have been "The Red Cross in
Italy," has changed his topic to
"Sicily, Past and ,Present." The talk
will be illustrated.
Professor Cross has only recently
returned from Italy where he served
as a captain in the.'American Red
Cross for more than a year. For a
large portion of that time, he directed
the work of the Red Cross in the rest
stations and the canteens on the rail-
way lines in Italy, and, in this capac-
ity, travelled constantly over most of
the country.
Because of the speaker's ,knowledge
of the activities of the Red Cross, his
change of topic has been noted with
some regret. Professor Cross' ac-
quaintance with Sicily, however, is
ccnsidered a guarantee that the new
subject will prove interesting.

Paris, June 30.-The French gov-
ernment is preparing a volume giving
the record of American co-operation
during and after the war. A copy of
the volume, the Temps says, will be
given to every American soldier who
served in France.
Divorced Prince 'Joins Monastry
Munich, June 30.-Prince George,
eldest son of Prince Louis of Bavaria,
has entered a Jesuit monastery at
Innsbruck, according to newspapers

The economics department this year
has sent only one man, Walter R.
Stark, '19, to the National City Bank
of New York. This bank maintains a
training school for students of differ-
ent colleges who wish to enter its
service in foreign countries, these
being selected every year for their
scholarship, general ability, and char-
Few men were taken in by the Na-
tional 'City Bank this year because of
the fact that there are numerous ap-
pointees of previous years who are
returning from the service. These
men entered the service and were un-
able to take advantage of the ap-
pointments, and now there is an over-
flow of candidates. It is not believed,
however, that this abnormal situation
will last long.

"Unterseaboaten" U. C. 97, has an-
chored at the foot of Randolph street,
Detroit, and manned by an American
crew, will prove extremely docile this
July 4.
Where 12 months ago she was seed-
ing mines, or planting torpedoes in
shipping paths on the Atlantic, one
of Von Tirpitz' "pirates of the sea"
respecting neither hospital ships nor
neutral merchantment, she will now
be the humble host for scores of sight-
sers. For the U. C. 97, a trophy of war
of the Allied victory in the world con-
test, and now on an exhibition tour
of the Great Lakes, will remain at her
present anchorage until Thursday,
when, with her decks awash, she will

Fitted with six mine tubes and
three torpedo tubes, capable of car-
rying 18 mines or 6 torpedoes, and
mounting a gun with a range of 10,000
yards, the U. C. 97 was one of the type
of submarines with, which Germany
thought she could starve England out
of the war.
Purple Passedi;
Ye i Pink ,Returns
Beginning today, you can write
home, to her, or to anybody else in
the United States for two cents-that
is, if you keep the weight of your let-
ter under one ounce.
Beginning today, young ladies with
some desire to be artistic in all their
actions, may return to using pale pink
stationery without fear of a color
clash between the delicate tint and
the deep purple of a three-cent stamp:
Beginning today, numerous drug
stores, tobacco shops, and other es-
tablishments where stamps are sold
to those who "couldn't get around be-
'fore- the postofitce closed" will have
to make some readjustments in their
vending machines.
And the cause of it all is the return
to the ante-bellum postage rates,
which become effective again today.
Once more the letter rate will be two
cents per ounce or fraction thereof
and postcards may be franked with a
one-cent stamp.
In May, 1917, the postage rates were
raised to meet the need for increased
revenue. The legislation necessary
to this change specified that the high,
er rates were to be in effect only for
the duration of the war.





At the closing of the registrar's of-
'fice on Monday afternoon the registra-
tion in summer schol had reached a
mar% very much greater than that of
last year. As there are many stu-
dents who have not yet registered, the
authorities are becoming stronger in
their belief that this year's Sumcer
session will be the largest in the his-
tory of the University.
One class -,that in library meth-
ods - has already passed the limit
set for it and is still growing. Other
classes also show promise of exceed-
ing their estimated sizes and it will
probably be necessary to make the lim-
its in some cases very elastic.
While exact registration figures for
the various schools and colleges are
not yet available, it is known that the
enrollment in the Law school has tri-
pled that ,of the first semester of the
past year.
Big Demand For
Tennis T iek et s
While definite plans for competitive.
athletics during the present Summer
school have not yet been made, it is
expected that singles and doubles!
championships in tennis will be de-
cided, in addition to the canoe, swim-
ming, and diving events that will be
held on the river during the summer.
Cards admitting the holders to
Ferry field may be obtained from Dr.
May at Waterman gymnasium. The
fee for the summer session is $1. The
cards are going rapidly and from early
indications the 33 tennis courts avail-
able on Ferry field will be taxed to
the limit this summer.
An inter-fraternity tennis tourna-
ment is being pushed, and if sufficient
interest is shown this will be added to
the summer schedule, in addition to
the open singles and doubles cham-
pionships, which are to be decided by
an elimination tournament.
Americans Buy the Krupp Factory
London, June 30.-The Krupp works
at Munich have been sold to Amer-
icans, according to dispatches from
Munich quoting newspapers there.

Prof. Edwin D. Dickinson, formerly
of the department of government and
political science at Dartmouth col-
lege, has been appointed to the- Law
school professorship left vacant by
the resignation of Prof. Willard T.
Barbour, who leaves to take the chair
of equity and English law at Yale.
Professor Dickinson received his
A.B. degree from Carleton college,
Minn., in 1909, and his Master of Arts
from Dartmouth a year later, where
he was immediately made an instruc-
tor and later an assistant professor.
He remained there until 1917, when
he went to Harvard to complete his
work for a doctorate. He received
his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1919. While
at Harvard he also studied law, and
came to the University of Michigan
last fall, to complete his law studies.
He was graduated a Juris Doctor
from the University of Michigan last
Writes Important Articles
During his studies at Michigan and
Harvard he has. published a number
of important articles in the Yale Law
Journal and in the Michigan Law Re-
view. His book on the "Equality of
Nations is now being published by the
h4arvard press. This work was con-
sidered so important that the house
commission sent for the manuscript
of it, because it bears on some of the
peace settlement questions and es-
pecially on the rights of the small
Teaches at Illinois
During the 1918 summer session of
the University of Illinois, Professor
Dickinson taught international law,
and this year he has received most
attractive offers from two of the large
educational institutions, one in the
East, and the other in the mid-West.
"There is no question in my mind,
but that Mr. Dickinson will come to
be considered one of the greatest au-
thorities of international law in this
country, within a very few years," de-
clared Dean Henry M. Bates, Friday.

In the first part of his lecture Pi

Russia during the past centuries ar
pointed out the causes which led 1
the Revolution. He showed that, I
the main, the trouble lay with ti
nobility, who failed to see that the
stupidity in politics and their graftir
would eventually lead to dissatisfa'
tion among the Russian people, w

He then traced the main events o
the Russian history and told how eac
