Georgetown University's “Home Com
ing' 1 celebration, which has been made
a feature of the annual West Virginia
came, brought an unusually large num
t ber of out-of-town alumni to Washing- I

Members of both the Georgetown and
West Virginia teams were invited to the
dance given at the Wiilard after the
game by the Interfraternity Council,
which is composed of fraternities in the
; i various professional schools of the uni

Public Lectures Open.
Gaston Hall was crowded last Tues
day evening for the opening series of the
public lectures under the auspices of
1 1 the School of Foreign Service, the
i < speaker on this occasion having been
Dr. Andre Siegfried, professor in the
| Ecole Libre des Sciences Politiques of
Paris. His subject was “French Psy
chology in the Framing of Foreign
Policy.” Georgetown owes a debt of
gratitude to the famous institution
which Dr. Siegfried represents. When
the School of Foreign Service was or-
s 1 ganized about 11 years ago, the author
s ities of the French school willingly co
ir operated in arranging the course of
f study and scope. The foreign service
j department at Georgetown, the pioneer j
£ in this country, was largely patterned
t after the Paris institution, which is
S famous throughout the world.
* Another distinguished European edu-
S cator at Georgetown last week was Prof.
i J. W. F. Rowe, a member of the faculty
f of economics at the University of Lon
* don, who visited Dean William F. Notz
35 of the School of Foreign Service. He
showed great interest in the work and
» organization of the school.
i Dr. William Manger of the Foreign
l Service faculty and chief of the divi
sion of financial information of the
V Pan-American Union, has been con
£ tributing various articles on the Pan
| American highway to link up the na
< tional road systems. He returned re
-7; cently from Rio de Janeiro as a mem-
I ber of the American delegation to the
# second Pan-American Highway Con
ti gress. At the close of the congress Dr.
Manger visited a number of the South
American countries, where he had an
*- opportunity to discuss and study eco
. nomic conditions in connection with his
Debate on Cuban Sugar.
*5 The Philodemlc Debating Society at
; its last meeting debated the question,
r “Resolved, That Philippine cane sugar
• should bs aomifted into the United
States free of duty.” Interest in the
, debate, however, was centered in the I
single-handed performance of Godfrey
Butler. • Owing to the absence of Ins
teammate. Robert W. Manning, he had
to debate both sides of the negative.
:He did this so ably that not, only was
the negative side given the decision in
'■the debate, but he was also selected as
the best speaker. His opponents were
William Glavin and John Lynch.
The Philodemlc Society will hold its
annual Merrick debate on December 8.
This is the most important scholastic
event, perhaps, during the entire year
in the college.

TO TAKE OP ISSUES
Organized Voters Will Con
sider Important Problems
By a Staff Correspondent of The Stsr.
CLARENDON, Va., November 16.
Several matters of current interest to
the entire county are to be considered
at the quarterly meeting of the Organ
ized Women Voters of Arlington County
Wednesday at the Cherrydale Firemen’s
Hall. The meeting will open with a
luncheon at 1 o'clock. Lieut. Mina C.
Van Winckle, head of the women’s bu
reau of the Washington Police Depart
ment, will be the principal speaker.
Mrs. E. W. Magruder, vice president of
the organization, will be official hostess.
Both Sides of Incorporation.
In view of the fact that the next
meeting of the Virginia Legislature will
take place in January, one of the im
portant features of the meeting will
be the reading of two papers, one in
support of the incorporation of the
county and the other against. This has
been a vital issue in the county for the
past several years and is still being
seriously considered by a great many
residents so it is the desire of the asso
ciation to acquaint the members with
all of the facts so that they may be
prepared to take a stand in case the
question is brought up in the General
Assembly. The committee appointed
to prepare the papers consists of Mrs.
C. W. Harris, Mrs. Harry K. Green and
Mrs. Arthur Orr.
Mrs. Julian W. Simpson, president of
the Organized Women Voters and chair
man of a special subcommittee of the
executive committee that was appointed
to make an investigation of the possi
bilities for fixing new boundaries be
tween Arlington and Jefferson dis
tricts. will make her report which will
be, she said today, that the matter will
have to be taken up in the Circuit
Court. This question is being consid
ered because the Requisition of a part
of Jefferson district by Alexandria
leaves it very much smaller than either
of the other two districts of the county.
The court cannot consider the change
until the annexation becomes actually
effective January 1.
Oil Plant Problem.
There not having been a meeting of
the organization since the question came
up, consideration is to be given to the
proposed erection in Rosslyn of an oil
storage plant by the Sun Oil Co. The
civic committee has already expressed
itself as opposed to the plant, a permit
for which has been granted by the
board of county supervisors. Efforts
are being made, however, to have the
Federal Government take a hand in the
