Meet Is Failure, Nevertheless, Since
Agreement Is Not Reached on
Main Points
(By Associated Press)
GENEVA, August 4.-War between
Great Britain, the United States and
Japan is unthinkable, declared Hugh
S. Gibson, America's chief representa-
tive, at the closing session of the Tri-
parttite Naval confe'rence today. Hence
there is no reason, he added, why an
agreement, which has not been obtain-
ed at Geneva, should not be reached
shortly as the result of direct negotia-
tion among the governments or a re-
conciliation of the divergent views.E
The burial ceremony of the confer-
ence, held in the presence of a large
assembly, was carried out without the
employment of words of recrimination
and, as W. C. Bridgeman, head of the
British delegation, said: "We are not
dispersing in a spirit of bitterness or
When the conference adjourned sine
die, after the adoption of a joint reso-
lution suggesting direct negotiation
between the governments, Mr. Bridge-
man walked up to the stairs of the
hotel EsBerquen, in whose ballroom
the last act of the naval drama was
played, to the private office of Mr.
Gibson and shook his American col-
league warmly by the hand. This was
hailed as an indication that the first
lord of the British admiralty believed
the differences between the United
States and Great Britain, manifested
at the confernce, were nothing more
serious than a slight family tiff.
Admiral Saito, distinguished mem-
her of the Japanese delegaton, join-
ing in the thought of Mr. Gibson and
Mr. Bridgeman, declared in a valedic-
tory address that he for one declined
to view the results of the conference
as a rupture of negotiations. He was
convinced, he affirmed vigorously, that
in some form or other, attempts to
limit extravagance and competition in
naval buildings, already limited in
practice by common sense, will con-
tinue and eventually succeed.
The joint declaration, adoption of
whichinvolved automatic adjoiirnment
of the conference, represents an ef-
fort to summarize the points of the
three delegations on the matters on
which they agreed and on those on
which they disagreed. The declara-
tion shows that the conference was
wrecked yn two points. The first, that
of total tonnage limitation, for cruis-
ers on which the British and the Amer-
icans were unable to attain an'accord;
the second, on the problem of so-called
eight-inch guns on cruisers.
The fact remains, however, that des-
pite the friendly phrases embodied in
Ithe final addresses and the official dec-
laration, the Tripartite naval confer-
ence has failed. It is true a complete
agreement was reached on the sizes of
individual destroyers and submarines,
and on the sizes of the guns to be
carried by the warcraft, but on the
main problem of the parley, that of
cruisers, the delegates were said to
have been as far from accord at the
end.of the conference as at the start.

PARIS, August 4.-Some progress
was made today in the task of patch-
ing up the differences between Charles
A. Levine, ownernofsthe transatlanthi
plane "Columbia" and Maurice Drou-
hin, French aviator, who Levine en-
gaged'to pilot the ship on a return
flight to the United States. Their
lawyers yesterday discussed the ser-
vice of a summons on Levine last night
by Drouhin demanding tbIat Levine
carry out his agreement witih the pilot
as to financial arrangements.-
The lawyers reached no final agree-
ment, but said a new contract m
be agreed upon tomorrow. Levine's
answer to the summons that he would
deposit the 300,000 francs insurance
fund for Drouhin's family was follow-
ed today by a more optimistic note in
the Drouhin camp. The French avia-
tor took the "Columbia" up for a gaso-
line consumption test and it was found
that the motors that took the aero-
plane from New York to Germany con-
sumed five per cent less fuel.
Drouhin expressed himself as en-
tirely satisfied with the test, as did
"Doc" Kincaid, the Wright motor ex-
pert and the Belanca expert.
The question remaining to be set-
tled is just when the 300,000 francs
is to be deposited. Drouhin's lawyer
demands that this be done at once,
since everything is ready for the
flight with the exception of a load
test. Levine's lawyer is understood
thus far to have avoided setting a de-
finite time, although giving assur-
ance that Levine was in accord with
Drouhin on this point.
University Of Michigan Biological
Camp Gives Exhibition Of Their
Summer Activities I
Exhibition of the activities of the
University of Michigan's biological
station, in charge of Professor R. La-
Rue, at Cheboygan, Michigan, held on
the afternoon of July 31, was attend-~
ed by obut four hundred people. This
is the first time that the camp has
been open to public inspection this1
The officials at the exhibition reg-
sitered 370 visitors between the hours
of 2 and 5; there were at least thirty'
more who came after registration had
'ceased. Among the visitors there
were several Ann Arbor people; they
were Mr. and Mrs. Harry N. Cole, 1
Mrs. Bishop and William Bishop, Pro-1
lessor Henderson, and a number of1

fellow told his story to the re-f
ception committee and then asked
"Is dere any beer?" He repeated his i
story and his question to every group
he met and was only partially satis-
fied -by two bottles of ginger ale
bought at the store.
The display at the exhibit included

The University of Michigan Biolo-

animals in their natural environment.

drawn from seven different collegesI
and universities. There are fifty-one
frame buildings of which eight are
used for laboratories, 37 for living
quarters, and the remainder for in-

this work each year the investigators
publish ten or more scientific ar-
ticles, which are sent to men of
science in all parts of the world.

(By Associated Press)
BOSTON, August 4.-"The inquiry
that I have conducted has had to do
with the following questions:
"Was the jury trial fair? Were the
acused entitled to a new trial? Are
they guilty or not guilty? As to the
first question, complaint has been
made that the defendants were prose-
cuted and convicted because they
were anarchists. As a matter of fact,
the issue of anarchy was brought in
by them as an explanation of their
suspicious conduct. Their counsel,
against the advice of Judge Thayer,
decided to attribute their action and
conduct to the fact that they were
anarchists, suggesting that they were
armed to protect thmeselves, that
they were about to start out at -10
o'clock at night, to collect radical
literature, and that the reason theyi
lied was to save their friends.

Lionel Crocker's class in One-Ac
Plays presented a program in Webs-

"Cinderella Married," "Judge Lynch,'
and "The Pot-Boilers," and were very
much enjoyed by the audience.
It has been decided that "Another
Way Out," by Lawrence Langner,
a play dealing with companionate mar-
riages, would fit in the group of plays
better than "Judge Lynch." so it will
be substituted in the next two per-
formances. The three plays will be
