Two Hour Conference Plan Is Effor
Tot Bring Students And Faculty
Into Association
"Each one of us likes to be an in-
dividual," stated Dean George E. Car-
rothers of Rollins College, Winter
Park, Florida, who lectured on "The
Rolins Plan of College Instruction'
yesterday afternoon in the Natural
Science auditorium. "Therefore," he
continued, "a system by which we
could eliminate large classes and in-
aquaintance with the instructors was
desirable."
Dean Carrothers described the me-
thod which has been in use at Rollins
since last September and which is
known as the "Two Hour Conference
Plan." He stated that the purpose
underlying this plan is to bring the
student and the professor into the
closest possible touch in the working
hours of the day. The student's even-
ings are leisure time, although he
must be in bed by ten.
Stress Physical Development
His afternoons are to be spent in
some sort of physical recreation, a
principal aim of the college being to
promote sound physical health. Class
cuts, final examinatins, and compul-
sory attendance at chape]l have been
abolished. "We wish," concluded Dean
Carrothers, "development that can be
understood and measured. We be-
lieve that we are on the right road."
At the beginning of his lecture, the
Dean traced the history of Rollins col- i
Lege from the time of its founding in!
1883 by the Congregational church to
the present day, stating how two years
ago Hamilton Holt, then editor of "The
Independent," was tendered the presi

(Bv Associated Press)
GENEVA, Jluly 13.-The Tri-partit
naval conference is still wabblin
along, but has achieved nothing defi
nite on the grave issue revolving abou
cruisers.
Presumably the moment is fast ap
proaching when either some solutioi
must be discovered or the delegate
must separate to permit further re
flection. Nevertheless, the plehar3
session has been convoked for 3
o'clock tomorrow afternoon to per
mit of a summing up of the situation
as far as it has gone.
Discusion Appears Futile
The principal delegates shave gone
over the same problems in the same
atmosphere so often that today it
was decided to foregather in a villa
ust outside Geneva. The hope was
expressed that the new environment
would inspire new remedies. How-
ever, a long exchange of views, char-
acterized by both frankness and cour-
esy, failed to result in any progress,
cording to reliable information.
On behalf of the Japanese delega-
ion, Viscount Ishii made perfectly
lear Japan's determination not to ac-
ept a high level for cruiser tonnage.
n doing so, however, he followed the
apanese position of couching diffi-
ult things in polite phrases.
Hugh S. Gibson, chief American
1legate, and Viscount Cecil of Shel-
wood, of the British contingent, 'had

Japan Opposed High Limitation
After agreeing to convoke a plenary
session, the meeting adjourned with
Japan in a position of opposition to a
high cruiser limitation even if suchl
were accepted by Great Britain and
h United States. The Angerican
delegation is less disposed than ever
to accept a maximum of 400,000 tonsl
because of Japan's opposition to it.
Considerable mystery enshrouds to-
morrow's public session. The Ameri-
cans appear to have a sure under-
standing that no controversial ques-4
tions will be taken up. According to
their understanding, the meeting will
be restricted to formal statements i

conference, and explaining .also that
negotiations are continuing in a most
friendly spirit in an earnest attempt1
to reach an accord.

As the fourth of the Summer ex-
I cursions, the trip yesterday to the
' River Rouge plant of the Ford Motor
company, under the direction of Carl-
ton Wells of the Rhetoric department,
provided an opportunity to see the
huge factory in all its operations. The
number of persons who went on the
Ford trip was 75, said Mr. Wells, most
of the party going in two chartered
busses and the remainder in private
automobiles.
a mDuring the two-hour visit to the
factory, which is chiefly used for the
conversion of raw materials, thespar-
ty, inspected almost every phase of I
plant activity with the exception of the
body plant. Experienced guides led
the party around the plant. First the
visitors had a general view of the fac-
# tory from a height of more than 100
feet. Then the blast furnaces were
shown. Here the molten metal wasl
seen flowing from the furnaces intoI
troughs which in turn led the metall
to the molds. This is a special fea-
ture of the Ford method of casting,,
for instead of casting the metal into
