Resolutions De’ilore Efforts
of Others to Define Uni
versity’s Views.
A series of resolutions refuting
statements refie, ting upon the ad
ministrative offieers of Howard Uni
versity and deploring the attempt of
ertain groups to express the atti
tude of the university with reference
to the federalization of the institu-'
tion. as pioposed in the Craniton I*sll
now pendmg in Congress, were adopt
ed by the board of forte of the
university yesterday afternoon.
The resolutions denied that of the
515.100 added to the university sal
aries for the year 1924-1925 “the
bulk of it went to the clerical staff."
tin the contrary, tin- resolutions de
clared that more than So per cent was
allocated directly for increase in
academic teachers’ salaries. In de
nial of the statement that “adminis
trative officers are partial in the dis
tribution of funds which come into
their hands," the resolutions point
out that the board of trustees ap
poinied a budget committal . whl“h
spent four laborious days last Sum
mer in a careful study of university
“With respect to a change in gov
ernmental relations to Howard Uni
versity,” continued the resolutions,
“it is proper to say that the Craniton
bill was brought to the attention of
the hoard of trustees by the admin
istrative officers of the university last
June and a special committee was
appointed, composed of M. K. Ailes of
the Riggs National Hank, Washing
ton, D. C.; Dr. Albert Hushnell Hart
of Harvard University, Cambridge
Mass.,; Col. Theodore Roosevelt of
Oyster Bay, N. V.. and Hr. M. F.
"Wheatland of Newport, R. 1., to study
the whole question and make recom
mendations to the board of trustees.
“The administrative officers of the
university will lx- guided by the vote
of the university trustees. It is to
be hoped that deans, professors, in
structors, etc., will be similarly guid
■d, for the final re eonsibility in this
matter must rest with the board of
trustees. It is no part of the func
tion of any group of teachers of the
university to attempt to indicate
to the public the attitude, of the uni
versity in this important matter.”

Drops Baton to

Friends Say Furtwaengler

1 Correspondence of Tlie Associated Press.
LEIPZIG, November "23.—Wi1l W'l
| helm Purtwacnglcr, director of the
' ( Gewandhaus Orchestra, go down in
i hlstorv as another Beethoven or will
| his fame be limited to that of a
’! worthy successor to Arthur Nikisch,
1 the late conductor of the Leipzig Ov
■ j chc' tra?
j Musical circles all over Europe are
j debating this question in view of
; Purtwaengler’s decision to limit
| greatly the number of concerts he
j will direct outside of Uelpzig. It is
j an open secret that he Is busy com-
S posing, and that musical literature is
• : to he enriched by his first symphony
: before the concert season 1924-25 is
i over.
: ! It took much urging on the part of
! his friends to persuade Furtwaengler
I to take this step. He is of a modest,
i retiring disposition, diffident about
I his own abilities and hesitant to pro
-1 | duce himself as a composer. But those
I who have seen two minor efforts of
i his, a “Te Deura” and a string quar
■ tet, believe that he has the stuff in
: him to rankthe side of Beethoven,
I Brahms and Strauss.
1 Furtwaengler already enjoys the
j reputation of being one of the most
! able orchestra conductors in Europe,
j When he took over the position left
I vacant by the untimely death of Ar
! thur Nikisch In 1921, everybody was
i exceedingly critical of him. Nikisch’s
I place was regarded as one that could
! not be filled. After three years as di
* rector of the Leipsic orchestra, how
! ever, Furtwaengler has established
I the reputation of being in every way
\ a worthy successor to Nikisch.
| Musical critics point out that great
■ composers have been usually notori
! ously poor conductors, and that suc
j cessful conductors rarely’ find time
| to do much composing. The musical
: world is now waiting to see whether
i Furtwaengler will prove one of those
i rare geniuses.

Commissioners Say Confer
ring of Rights Last June
Increased Obligation.
i The act of last June conferring clt
| izenship upon all non-citizen Indian -,
numbering some 125,0(M>, did not end
ttie Government’s interest in the In
dian problem, but, on the contrary,
Increased its responsibilities, it is as
serted in the annual report of the
Board of Indian Commissioners, sub
milled to the Secretary' of the Interior
The granting of citiz- nshlp did not
I change the status of the Indians as
! wards of the Nation, it is stated. Th
United Stales is still their guardian
and trustee to their properties. It is
I pointed out.
1 “These facts are presented,” the re
port explains, "because there seem.-,
to be a somewhat widely spread irn
pression ttiat when President Cool
idge signed the Indian citizenship a ,*t
he, then and there, with a sweep oi
‘ his pen, ended the Indian problem and
laid it away in the archives of his
! tory; that there now is no further
I need of Federal guardianship and
trusteeship, and, consequently, no
i further excuse for the continuance of
i tlte Bureau of Indian Affairs,
j “This board holds views exactly to
| tile contrary. Wo are of the opinion
i that the formal merging of the Indian
people into the citizenry of the coun
j try is a distinct challenge to the
i Government to intensify Its Indian
Service activities in order to hasten
; the day when all supervised Indians
may safely pass from under super
| vision by becoming the unrestricted
j owners of their property and the
; equals. In all respects, of all other
i American citizens. We are firmly of
; the opinion that this change in the

Among the several recommenda

| following: More authority, initial and
j final, for superintendents of Indian 1
reservations In matters which are
j purely local; the passage of pending!
