Washington, Nov. 14.-Possible ad
dition of railroad legislation to the
ship subsidy and other administration
measures on the program for the win-
ter in congress was indicated todgy
by White House developments.
Harding to Press Bill
Pres. Harding was said to have told
White House callers that he intend-
ed to press the ship subsidy bill
strongly in the house next week an
also through the senate and this it
the face of discouraging reports froir
Republican congressional leaders. The
president also made an appointment
with chairman Cummins, of the Sen-
ate inter-state commerce committee
to take up in a few days the question
of railroad legislation. Amendment
of the Esch-Cummins law to strength-
en the railway labor- board by giving
it power to enforce orders on railroad
officials and employees was reported
under contemplation.
Makes Plans for Special Session
The president today made partial
plans for the opening next Monday of
the extra session of congress. His
opening message which will be in'the
form of a personal address at a joint
session next Tuesday will be very
brief, he said, and will be devoted
principally to the ship subsidy bill.
The opening address also is expected
to urge speedy disposition of appro-
priation bills with a view to a cleanup
of all p'ressing business by March 3
and avoidance of an extra session next

der the auspices of the Student coun-
cil and the Ann Arbor Chamber of

decorated for the Wisconsin-Michigan
game Saturday. Requests have been
.made by these bodies that the red and
white of Wisconsin be given nearly
equal prominence with the maize and
blue of Michigan.
A cup is being offered by the Stu-
dent council to the fraternity, sorority,
league house, dormitory, or any oth-
er house in which students are quar-
tered. Judging in the contest will
begin at 9:30 o'clock Saturday morn-
ing. The sole qualifications for the
decorating laid down by the council
is that all designing, decorating or
painting be done by students who are
members, residents or pledges of the
In judging the decorations the
judges will take into consideration the
artistic harmony of the display, the
ingenuity and talent displayed, the
originality used, and the neatness of
the yard and surrounding street. Em-
phasis is laid on the fact that the
decorations count and not the natural
beauty of the house.
Stores in the business section will
also be judged in order to determine
which is best decorated.

(By Associated Press)
Santiago, Nov. 14.-Each hour brings
further details of the great disaster
to Chile caused by the earthquake
and the tidal wave, and each new re-
port adds to the list of dead and the
enormous damage already reported.
Advices this afternoon from Valle-
nar and the province of Atacama say
that the total dead recovered thus far,
at that place number 1,500, while the
adjoining town of Frieirina is in com-
plete ruins, the casualties not being
An official compilation by the min-
ister of the interior, based on reports
received early in the day gave the
number of dead in six towns as 886
and the injured as 4,110. These towns
were Ballenar, Copiapo, Coquimbo, Hu-
asco, Chanaral and Frieirina. This
compilation therefore did not take in-
to accouft the hundreds of smaller
places within the radius of the earth-
quake which are shut off from com-
munication because of the breakdown
of telegraph lines.
Twelve hundred ,miles of the coast
line felt the effect of the great tidal;
waves which followed the earth
shocks and for a large-proportion of
their distance sea port towns and
villages were inundated for nearly
four days after the disaster. Thous-

Scotland Yard, famous In detective
stories and in the newspapers as the
center of one of the greatest, crime
detecting organizations in the world,
will be revealed by the man who head-
ed the English Criminal investigatidn'
department from 1913 to 1921. Sir Ba-
sil went to Scotland Yard nearly a
year before the war began, recom-
mended by his long experience with
the British criminal which he 'iad
gaired through his service as execu-
tive in British prisons and through his
extensive work as a member of the
Scotland Yard force.
Controlled Traffic Between Countries
While the war was being conducted,
Scotland Yard had entire control of
all traffic conducted between England
and the Continent. Thus every one
of any rank traveling to any point
had to pass the observation of Sir
Basil's operatives.
Watches Radical Element
Since the war Sir Basil has been
given the important task'in England
of fighting the Red Peril. He was
required to keep a close watch over
the radical labor'parties in England iii
their relations with the Bolsheviki
junta of Russia and with the anarchist
leaders of Germany,,;Ito1j;~,inie, ai
Spain. He is recognized as one of the
great underlying fOrces in checking
the influx of the Red emissaries into
England. He labored under theats

dice against secret'service, particular-
Ily when the action is associated with
political interference with individual
Sir Basil belongs to a. notable Eng-
lish family and is a son of the late
Archbishop of York. Receiving his
early education at Eaton, he after-
ward was graduated from New col-
lege, Oxford, when he entered the
British Government Colonial service.
During this period of government
work he was one of the leader in the
exploration of New Guinea. Later he
held official positions in' Tonga and
Fiji. in the South Sea regions.
Author of Famous Works
le then started his long work as
criminologist with the appointment to
the committee to reorganie several
of the British penal institutions. He
had experience which qualified him to
deal particularly with the more vio-
lent types of' crimi'nals.
Not only has Sir Basil Thomson
won fame as a criminologist, but also
as an author, 'his works including en-
