WILSON'S NATIONAL D E F E N S E
PROGRAM COMPLETED BY
HOUSE COMMITTEE
SUPREME COURT DEFENDS TAX
Chief Justice Takes Up Remaining
Cases; Dodge Brothers of De-.
troit Lose Suit
Washington, Feb. 21.-Work on the
first draft of the army feature of Presi-
dent Wilson's national defense pro-
gram was completed today by the
house committee on military affairs.
Assurances have been given that the
measure will be reported for action by
the house early in March.
The army bill as tentatively agreed
to is based so far as its reserve fea-
tures are concerned upon the militia
system which has been condemned by
army experts. The Garrison conti-
nental army plan is thrown overboard.
In regard to the regular army the in-
creases approximate those recom-
mended by Mr. Garrison.
Passes o Income a
Washington, Feb. 21.-The last of
the objections raised against the con-
stitutionality of the income tax' law
were swept away today when the Chief
Justice took up the few remaining
cases not decided when the main cases
were passed upon recently and the law
upheld. Most of these cases passed
on today involve questions of proce-
dure mainly, such as the Dodge Broth-
ers case of Detroit, who sought to en-
join the collection of the tax by suit
in the District of Columbia, and lost.

Governor Woodbridge N. Ferris, in
an address. in Hill auditorium Sunday
night, expressed theaopinion that mili
tary training at Michigan will become
so popular that only a small minority
will not pakicipate.
He said, "I am in favor of prepared
ness, but in doubt as to the extent to
which it should be carried out. We
must find, first, if the world is gone
wholly mad, and we must be ready tc
help wrongs which humanity has suf-
fered."

WHAT'S GOIN 0N

Much has been written and said
concerning the deeds and policies of
George Washington, commonly known
as "The Father of our Country" by
school teachers and admiring hero-
worshippers. So much has been said,
so many real or imaginary episodes
connected with his life are recalled
yearly, that it hardly seems neces-
sary to display a superfluous amount!
of feeling on this date.
Washington was born in England
on February 22, 1732, just 184 years
ago. Filled with a desire to obtain

fought with the Colonial forces, and
enter9d upon an eventful career, the
climax of which was reached when he
succeeded in defeating Cornwallis de-
cisively at Yorktown, in the closing
battle of the Revolution.
The memory of Washington is very
dear in the minds of the past genera-
tion, but it seems in the present age
of hurry, work and progress that youth
has no time to consider the hero of
nearly two centuries ago. Washing-
ton was undoubtedly one of the great-
est men who began the work of de-
veloping the United States. What he

L. W. Lamb Is Found Guilty of -Steal
ing Drawing Instruments
Lawrence W. Lamb, '17E, was dis-
missed from the university by action
of the engineering faculty, following
his apprehension as the thief who stole
a set of drawing instruments from
the Michigan Technic offices last No-
vember. The theft which ultimately
resulted in Lamb's expulsion occurred
on November 1, 1915, and remained a
total mystery until a few weeks ago.
The instruments were sold to a high
school student and it was from this
source that the faculty made .its dis-
coveries.
"This action of the engineering fac-
ulty simply reflects the sentiment of
all the faculties in the various schools
and colleges in the university," said
iProf., W. H. Butts, assistant dean of
the Colleges of Engineering and Ar-
chitecture yesterday, in making public
the action of that body. "We feel that
a student who cannot be trusted with
another's property should not be al-
iowed to remain in the university."
