GENEVA, August 2.-Successful
Japanese meditation was said in the
Tri-partite Naval conference circles,
tonight to appear to be the only thing
that could save the conference from

A lengthy conference of the Japan-i
ese delegation was held today. This
followed upon a meeting between Vis-
count Ishii and W. C. Bridgeman, chief
British representative, at which Mr.
Bridgeman is reported to have askedI
the Japanese statesman whether he
had any suggestions to offer.
The Japanese represetatives met to
examine the situation from every
possible angle, to determine whether
any means could be discovered which
offered a path for acceptance as a
remedy for eight-gun cruisers which
is causing the existing deadlock.
From what meagre information
seeped out to the press, the Japanese
had not succeeded in developing a
single formula which would bring
the British and Americans closer to-
gether on -this contested point. How-1
ever, it was undertsood tonight that
the Japanese were continuing their
study tenaciously.
The British spokesmen did not
spare their words today in criticiz-
ing unfavorably the American propo-
sal which was framed to permit re-
nunciation of the treaty in case the
British found the American construc-
tion of cruisers a menace to British
security. The spokesmen asserted
that the proposal was fundamentally
objectionable because it authorized
no means of signatories until 1931,
and renunciation of the treaty was
not possible until 18 months after the
end of 1931.

University "Aurania," co-educational.
The announcement is as follows:
"The International U n i v e rsity
Cruise Inc., in conjunction with the
Cunard Steamship Company, Ltd.,
takes pleasure in announcing that
Walter Wallace McLaren has ac-
cepted the office of President of the
Faculty and Educational Director of
the Floating University "Aurania."
President MccLaren takes office im-
mediately. He has been given a free1
hand and full authority. He does not
plan to make any basic changes, being
in complete sympathy with the poll-
cies of the co-educational Floating
University, and any minor changes or
new appointments which he may di -
tate will be announced to the public
as soon as possible.'
President McLaren received his
Ph.D. from Harvard in 1908, and was
immediately called to Japan to serve
as Professor of Economics and Poli-
tics at Tokio until 1914. He then
ccame to Williams College, where he
is now Professor of Economics and
Executive Secretary of the Institution
of Politics.
During 1920 and 1921 Dr. McLaren
was the consulting economist for Far
Eastern countries in the department of
state. He is a member of the Eco-
nomic Association, of the American
Political Science Association, and of
the Asiatic Society of Japan.

Dr. Pollock mentioned four rea-
sons for the large expenses of pli-
tical parties. They were, first, the
complicated nature of the United
States government, which is difficult
for even close students of politics to
grasp fully and which by its intricate
processes makes the nomination and
election of candidates a hard and
long drawn out process.
Second the large amount of money
which must be devoted to advertis-
ing. Third, the fact that a party
must be generous and must not
bother about financial details lest a
bad impression be created. And last,
the genral apathy with which the
public looks upon the government as a
whole which encourages spectacular
campaigns and therefore greater ex-
