were played with expressive warmth,
and with that full understanding
I which this organist seems always to
infuse in his descriptive numbers.
Schumann's "Sketch in D Flat", more
familiar in De Pachman's arrangement
for the piano, was played with a
lyriciam of effect that is rarely en-
countered in organ music.
There seems always something lack-
ing in Wagner in the hands of the
organist, something that only the full
symphony can define. The Tournament
March from "Tanhauser", played as
the concluding number, sounded
somewhat blatant, even for a march.
Perhaps the condition of the organ
is in some measure responsible. At
any rate an organist of Mr. Christian's
calibre deserves a better instrument.
There will be a second concert next
1 Wednesday evening.

meating in the absence of Dean Whit-
ney, who is ill, and also spoke on the
growth of the department of educa-
tion in the University from the time
of its inception in 1879.
Professor Davis pointed out that
the. department of education in this
University is the oldest in the coun-
try that has had a continuous exis-
tence, and that for twenty years,
from 1879 to 1899 there was only one
man on the University staff who taught
the subject. At the outbreak of the
World war there were five men on the
faculty in this department and the
rapid growth to the present time is
best illustrated by the fact that now
there are about 50 on the faculty of
the School of Education, who are di-
vided with about 15 teaching the reg-
ular courses, about 15 engaged in the

Democratic Sponsors Base Proposal
On Treasury Surplus Reported At
Annual Budget Meeting
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, June 23.-Introduc-
tion by the Democrats of both houses
of Congress today of bills proposing
immediate tax reduction brought to
light a somewhat nebulous plan
among members of the minority party
for a complicated drive for a general
lowering of taxes at the short ses-
sion next winter,
The Democrats sponsoring the bills
said their actions were prompted by
the estimated treasury surplus an-
nouiced at the budget meeting Monday
night. In placing the surplus for
the current fiscal year ending June
30th, at $390,000,000 and that for next
year at about half that amount, Presi-
dent Coolidge at that meeting took
the position that further tax reduction
should be held in abeyance until the
new revenue law can be given a
thorough test,
T'he three Democrats taking a differ-
ent view, who introduced the bills for
further tax relief at once were Repre-
sentatives Crist of Georgia, Jacob-
stein of New York, and Senator Cope-
land, Democrat, of New York,
Crist, a member of the House ways
and means committee, which has ini-
tial jurisdiction over revenue legisla-
tion, proposed a reduction in the cor-
poration tax from 13 1-2 to 10 per cent.
Jacobstein and Copeland offered sini-
lar proposals calling for a 25 per
cent refund of personal income taxes
and an investigation looking into the
elimination of automobile and amuse-
ment taxes and a reduction in the cor-
poration assessment,

National Prohibition Cost The Drys
About $35,000,000, According
To Counsel's Report
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, June 23.-With
Wayne B. Wheeler again facing him
across the Senate campaign funds
committee table, Senator Reed, of Mis-
souri. today began turning the spot-
light on the Anti-Saloon league fi-
nances. From the general counsel
and legislative agent of the league
the committee learned that the cam-
paign to bring about national prohi-
hition has cost the dry organization of
the country about $35,000,000 and that
expenses during the expensive years
of the fight immediately preceding
enactment of the 18th amendment
amounted to $2,500,000 annually.
Wheeler, who took the stand after a
long private conference with the com-
mittee, had no detailed figures for
these years, but produced reports and
receipts of disbursements during the
six years following enactment of the
prohibitory law. Incomes of the na-
tional organization amounted to near-
ly $1,000,000 in 1920, $848,174.88 was
the exact figure, but after that it de-
creased gradually until 1925 when it
totaled only $370,220. Disbursements
this year almost reached the total in-
come, the money going for salaries,
speakers, publicity, organization, and
law enforcement in the states.
The dry leader explained that funds
accounted for did not include money
spent directly in political campaigns,
that there was a separate campaign
conittee of which Andrew Wilson,
of Washington, is treasurer, and that
it makes reports directly to the clerk
of the House of Representatives as re-
quired under the law.
New witnesses in the Pennsylvanian
inquiry summoned today included
.Justice Kephart of the state supreme
court, county commissioner Walker,
Johnstown, Pennsylvania, A. Nevin
Tetruch, of Harrisburg, and Milton
Wilson, of the state treasury depart-
ment, Harrisburg, all listed as sup-
porters of Senator Vare.
Some of these witnesses are expect-
ed to be here tomorrow, but Mr.
Wheeler probably will occupy the
witness chair again at that time. His
examination is likely to continue over
