COLLEGE ORATOR fc ftetAnef Deliver Of atl6« At Juniata Com- fflencettieiHj When six Af e Graduated. HUNf JNODON, Pa,, June 3.—Modification of the Organization and practices of 6ur national government was the theme of at! address by Hon. Henry Prattle* Fletcher, former ambassador to Italy, at the fifty-fourth annual commencement exercises of Juniata college held yesterday morning. The class of ninety-six graduates was the largest in the history of the school. Ambassador Fletcher was awarded the. honorary degree, doctor of laws, for his distinguished service in international diplomacy. The highest scholastic honor—Summa cum laude—Was conferred upon Frank Relnhart, con of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Reinhart of 618 Ninth street, Juniata; John Beery, son of Mr. and Mrs. O. O. Beery of Martlnsburg, and Miss Florence Benson, daughter of Mrs. OeOfge BehSon of Holsople, graduated Magna currt Laude. Cum laude honors' were won by Miss Verna Sechler of Ursina, Harold Hartzler of Belleville, and Miss Gladys Mikesell of WaynfeuborO. The Other awards announced by Dr. Charles Calvert Ellis, acting president, who officiated at the exercises and conferred the 'degrees, were: Bailey oratorical and Brethren peace contest prizes, Joseph MacCarroll of Philadelphia; Dlehm extempore speaking prize, fMward Fuller of Cheltenham, Pa.; Imtlonal oratorical contest on the Con- Ititution, Frederick Wltmer of Osceola Mills; the A.'B. Brumbaugh science prize for worthy character and scholarship in chemistry, Frank Relnhart of Altoona; the Hyatt cup for football, scholarship, and character, Mervln Pent!! of Denton, Ind.; the Justina Marstellar Langdon award, to the girl who best exemplifies the spirit of helpfulness, gentle character, and loyalty to the college—Miss Caroline Didden of Hatfleld; the George W.

Stackpole prize, for the best contribution to the history of the Juniata valley, Thomas Knepp of Yeagertown. Mr. Knepp's paper was on "Early Ax Making in Mifflin County." ' Ambassador Fletcher brought Into his address the wealth of almost thirty years of international experience. His criticisms of our government weaknesses were definite and his suggested remedies sound. In his introduction, he paid a fine and tolling tribute to Mr. Martin G. Brumbaugh, former governor and former president of Juniata college. "As long as Pennsylvania produces men like Governor Brumbaugh," said a "that aur vH»nti«fti f>re£fe»9 hft.4 Uefrt ptcB faith our marvelous acted* Ufloi development was the assertion of Amfcassadbr Fletcher, f he prohibitions of cabinet members speaking oft the floor of the senate and house make coordination of executive and leglala* tlye functions difficult. The appointment of senators on commissions such as that which attended the London naval conference la an effort on the part of the president to secure the needed cooperation. "The treaty-making, or rather treaty- marring, power of the senate la another outgrown provision of, our Constitution," the speaker affirmed. "The power of thirty-three senators, who have been elected not because they know anything whatsoever of treaty- making to kill an agreement of International benefit regardless of what the president and the people wish is nti autocratic feature of our government which exists nowhere else In the world." Reform In our system of committee government and particularly reform with regard to "investigating" committees was a need stressed by Ambassador Fletcher. Representation economically according to lines of work and employment, rather than geographically according to districts, is a plan which Mr. Fletcher believes may ' well work for a stronger, democracy. I am not a radical or an alarmist, ', Ambassador Fletcher said fn closing, "but my study and experiences tell me that methods of government must keep orderly pace with the general advances of science and knowledge." Let us retain the balances which our Constitution so wisely provides; but let us remove some of the checks which have become as frozen brakes."

(Special Cable to Altoohs, Mirror artd N. 7. Sun.) LONDON, June 3.—Absorption of the Daily Chronicle by the Daily News, although expected for some time, is having repercussions today far outside Fleet street, particularly In political quarters. The Liberal party loses yet another powerful mouthpiece. The Dally News and the Evening Star are now the only Liberal dallies in the British capital. But what* causes much greater concern, is that this is a further example of the concentration of the principal newspapers of the nation in a few hands. There are today three big press groups—the Rothermere, Beaverbrook and Berry groups, covering )n three instances morning and afternoon papers In the metropolis and in the provinces, and in the Rothermere and Berry instances weekly and other periodicals as well. The latest merger Is described as a step towards rationalization in the face of keen competition. But there is an aspect to rationalization which is more earnestly debated than that of more efficient and economical production of newspapers, and that is that mergers are bound to exert a far- reaching influence on the course of British politics. At the moment the greatest concern of Tory party leaders is the protectionist campaign being conducted by the Rothermere and Beaverbrook groups, which threatens to drive Stanley Baldwin from the leadership of the party, and already has produced a cleavage ih the Tory organization. The Dally News merger Is a hard blow for David Lloyd George and the Liberals when the fortunes of that party are at such low ebb. The Daily News had in its earlier history already swallowed two other Liberal dailies. The Daily News has adopted tho Chronicle's principal feature—the devotion/ of the first page to news instead of advertisements. Of the popular London dailies, only The Mall Is now using the front page for advertisements. (Copyright, 1930, by New York Sun.) •STYLE RADIOS SHOWN TO DEALERS By ttOBERT MACK, Staff Correspondent. (Copyright, 19^0, by cortsolidated Press Association.) ATLANTIC CITY, June 3.—Television receiving apparatus was introduced in perspective today to America's radio industry assembled here to view what the next year ih radio will offer. Riding on the crest of the wave of the public acclaim inspired by the giant strides made in recent weeks in* television research, two manufacturers exhibited televisors to the some 30,000 radio dealers and jobbers attending the 1930 annual trade show. Under the auspices of the Radio Manufacturers' association, complete television receiving sets, synchronized with sound, were displayed to show to | the trade what It should expect in the way of commercial models. There were television receivers for the experimenter,.as well as the early showings of the commercial models designed for home use. There were visual reception kits for connection with audible receiving sets and there were the combination sets to bring in radio "talkies" or the sight synchronized with the sound. It was the first time that this newest off-shoot of radio, still confined to the experimental laboratory, has been presented to the radio trade. At past shows strictly experimental television has been exhibited, but always with the emphatic declaration of the industry that it was experimental. In the receiving set line there Were no startling innovations. Of more than usual significance was the display of tiny receiving sets about three feet high. Several manufacturers are offering them to the trade for delivery during the 1930-31 season, denoting an apparent trend toward these small consoles. Receiver camouflage, or the secretion of sets in book cases, tables, desks and the like, were more in evidence, as a new twist In furniture design. MAN STOOD UI*.

An executive session of the senate foreign relations committee was scheduled today to consider the London naval treaty. The committee Is receiving private information regarding the 1 negotiations at London and the precpnference correspondence between the United States and Great Britain. Bishop James Cannon, jr., of the Methodist Episcopal church, South, was called before the senate lobby committee today to answer questions about money he spent in the anti- Smith campaign of 1928. The bishop has stated publicly that the committee has no authority to make this Inquiry. Considerable speculation was aroused, therefore, as to whether eftflfto« answer the questions put to htm. Charge* that impure eftfot ana other ugs of substandard quality were being sold In the United States were pre» pared for introduction before the *en- atef agriculture committee today. The naval affairs committee of the house planned to continue today Its hearings on the selection of a dirigible base on the Pacific coast. MEMORIAL SERVICE HELD ALUM SANK, BEDFORD 00.
