OWNERSHIP OF VIRGIN ISLES MARDI GRAS BIDS GO ON SALE TODAY Status Quo in Possessions to Be Continued, President Declares. ABOARD U.S.S. ARIZONA, At Sea, Mar. 26—(UP)—President Hoover, homeward bound from a brief cruise of America’s posses sions in the West Indies, Indicated regret tonight that the United States had ever acquired the Virgin Islands. The President visited Porto Rico and the Virgin Islands. HIb state ment said that the present status quo would be continued in both and that there was no intention of transferring Porto Rico to the department of interior. Mr. Hoover said that he saw hope of developing Porto Rico, but was pessimistic regarding the Virgin Islands. He said the United States had paid $25,000,000 for "an effective poor house comprising 90 per cent of the population.” "Viewed from every point except remote naval contingencies,' the president said, "it was unfortunate that we ever acquired these islands." The Virgin Islands were purchased from Denmark in 1917, chiefly lo prevent their falling Into the hands of Germany durlug j the world war. | Supplementing his formal statement, the President said that no | serious consideration was being given the transfer of Porto Rico to the department of Interior.

LIKES COSTUMES Campus leaders have already expressed their approval and hopes for the success of the coming costume affair. Lewis Gough, student body president, made this statement yesterday: ‘‘Judging from the originality and effort already displayed by the entire committee in charge of the Interfra-ternity Mardi Gras, the dance has every promise of being a success ful and enjoyable occasion.
