NEARING THE END}
In one more week the summer ses-
sion of the University will be conclud-
ed. Students will leaves the buildings
will close for their annually brief per-
iod of rest, and the campus will be
deserted until the budding enthusiasmI
of a new freshman class brings it to
life 'again in the early days of autumn.I
There is nothing spectacular about
any summer session, and the one just
closing is no exception, but there is
something different about them, some-
denced. In three years the United
States will have launched eight cruis-
ers costing well up among the mill-
ions. Great Britain, during this same
period of three years will nbt be ex-
pected to place money in the manu-
facture of candy for nervous sailors;4
ion the contrary, she will undoubtedly
place in the water as many or more
tons of fighting craft as our yards will.
After the enormous expenditure from
our treasury, where will we stand?
If we understand British cruiserx
building abilities from past years, we
cannot get ahead of the game, andz
may possibly be further behind than
we are now. The difference betwe m
our sea strength compared to Eng-I
land's now, and what it will be three
years hence will be small, yet both
governments are throwing millions in-
to giant machines in an absurd at-
tempt at supremacy . . or some-a
thing. The childishness of the situa-
i tion is rather tragic-and when one
considers the triviality of reasons forf
disagreement and final adjournment of
the "conference" it resolves into
something worse than mere tragedy.
How the representatives from three
world powers ostensibly interested inf
a sensible plan of limiting naval ex-
penditures could let petty differences
cause failure is rather discouraging.'
It leads one to believe that all con-
ferences are composed of Bill Tbomp-t
sons, Governor Smalls and senators.
l We might have expected such an out-
come from the recent governors' con-
ference, but the Geneva locale has
been on a high plane heretofore.
To see one of the most hoped f)r
international agreements so messily
handled is like a slap in the face after
so many years of "World Peace"
yelping. Disarmament has been thrust
under our noses so frequently that we
all took it for granted as a thing which
must come about. It is sa inherently
simple and sensible. Now, after a
weighty conference we find that dis-
armament is a dream and that we
must madly build ships in an attempt
to keep abreast of other nations doing.

HILL AUDITORIUM, ANN ARBOR,
Mich., Aug. 10.-Rolls National party
nominating convention was trying to
find a candidate for the presidential
nomin'ation today. The party leaders#I
were having great difficulty in obtain-
ing a majority for any candidate.
Since Ma Ferguson received 501 votes
on the 51st ballot, none of the follow-
ing ten ballots gave any candidato
more than 209 votes which S'mall of
Illinois received on the 59th ballot.
At secret meetings held at the Whit-
ney hotel all during the day there was
a marked tendency of the western
delegations to turn to Ford. It was
expected late last night that a Ford
boom would be attempted today.
On the 62nd ballot Ford made :e-
markable headway. Cousins made a
long speech before the ballot was
taken and told of the remarkable man
which he was supporting and how the
government would not have to -,e
anything but Ford motor cars if 'is
candidate was nominated and eler tl.
On the ballot the vote stood Ford 549,
Small 200 and Ferguson 178. The
other candidates received scattering
votes. On this ballot Ford was with-
in one vote of nomination.
Then followed consistant Demo-
cratic balloting. Ford slipped from
his place as leader in the voting and
Small took his place. Vare, Reed and
Green each took a turn at leading
the list until finally on the 75th bal-
lot the Michigan governor had 4721
votes. Vare had 198, Smith 154.
* * *
The meeting was then adjourned for
luncheon and all the leaders of the
state delegations went to the Union
for lunch where they talked over the
possible candidates. The backers of
Reed, Green, Borah, Bryan and
Smith agreed to withdraw their can-
didates from the field, with the un-
derstanding that they would be given
cabinet posts by any candidate who
might win the nomination and elec-3
tion. % Ford, Vare, Thompson, Small
and Ma Ferguson remain in the race.
The Illinois delegation seemed to be
split between Small and Thompson
and Vare was conceded the best op-
portunity of winning the party's nomi-;
