Possibility Of Income Tax

Washington, March G.-(By A. P.)-
Machinery was set in motion in con-
gress today to remove from the rev-,
enue bill the provision for 25 per centl
reduction personal income taxes pay-
able this year and incorporate it in;
a. joint resolution which could be adop-
ted before March 15, when first in-
stallments are due.
Acting on a request from the trea-
sury department, the senate finance
committee unanimously indicated its
desire to agree to such a procedure
and Chairman Green of the house ways
and means committee announced he,
would place the proposal before that
committee tomorrow. If adopted, Mr.
Green said, he would call for a special;

rule which would permit the house to
take the resolution up immediately.
After talking the proposition over
with some leaders in the senate, Sen-
ator Harrison, Democrat, Mississippi.
a member of the finance committee.
said it was the opinion of Democrats
that the reduction should be allowed.
perhaps as soon as possible, but that
it was probable they would contend for
a reduction on the basis of the Dem-
ocratic income tax rates rather than on
a fiat 25 per cent reduction on taxes
under the present law.
Should senate Democrats carry out
this plan the entire income tax fight
would be brought to a head, and lead-
ers predicted such a contest would
prevent action before March 15.

Michigan's drive for the Stu-
dent Friendship Fund is report-
ed as slowly nearing the hoped
for goal of $5,000. The amount
raised is to be used, for support-
ing a Michigan kitchen in one of
the needy university centers of
Eastern Europe. The location of
this relief station will be decided
upon by the committee when all
the funds are in.
At the present time there are
many fraternity, sorority and
other organizations on the cam-
pus that have not yet been heard
from. The average so far from
the houses is well over $50. The
committee urges that any amount
towards the Michigan fund will
be appreciated either from indi-
viduals or groups. The kitchen
is to represent the faculty of the
University as well as the stu-
dents.

Washington, March 6.-(By A. P.,-
The senate chamber over which Calvin
Coolidge so recently presided today
became the forum of debate cn his of-
ficial acts and political fortunes, re-
markably alike for its solemnity and
for its bitterness.
Impelled by the disclosure that .
had sent two telegrams to Edward B.
McLean while the oil inquir' was at
its height, a half-dozen Democratic
senators turned upon the president
the same implements of attack they
have employed so often recently again-
st members of his cabinet.
Deplores Disparagement Tendency
He was defended with an equal fer-
vor by Henry Cabot Lodge, the vener-
able Republican senate leader from
his own state, who not ofily praised
the President's attitude towards the
oil scandal but deplored the tendency
toward disparagement of public men
which he said had dragged senate tra-
dition to an unbecoming level.
Senator Harrison, Democrat, Miss-
issippi, brought Mr. Coolidge's name
into the debate with a demand that he
personally explain to the country his
coimunications with McLean and not
leave that explanation to White House
statements issued by his secretary, C.
Bascom Slemp.
The speech went unanswered for
more than two hours and then Senator
Lodge, after communicating with the
White House arose to explain why the1
President had communicated with Mc-i
Lean and to assure the senate that
"whatever record leaps to life he never
will be ashamed."
. Walsh Attacks LodgeI
Sehgtors Caraway, McKellar, of
Tenessee and Dial, of South CarolinaI
vigorously, assailed Lodge in -on
nection,. with the attack upon Presi-
dent Wilspn. Senator Walsh, of 'Mon- '
tana, prosecutor in the oil inquiry, I
declared as the debate was growing
to close that Senator Lodge was un-
dertaliing .to use the prestige of the
presidency to minimize the oil dis-
closures.1
BARBOUR GYM CHOSEN
FOR ARCITCTS B LL
Arrangements have been completed f
for the holding of the Annual Archi-
tect's May party in Barbour gymnas-
ium, according to a recent announce-
ment of the committee in charge. Al-
though the Union was at first consid-
ered as the logical location for the
event; it'was finally decided that the
ball roomr was far to small to accom-
modate the large number of guests
expected.I
J. E. Fronczak, '24A, chairman of
the committee in charge of arrange-
ments, states that sanction has been;
given to have the affair this year takeI
the form of a fancy costume dance, and
it will be one of the few times thatj
such an event has ever been held on
the Michigan campus. The type of.
decorations is to be decided upon by a
competition within the architectural
school, and it is stated that they are
to be more simple than heretofore. as
it Is though tthat the highly colored,
costumes will more than make up for
the extreme in decorations. Competi-
tion is -also to be held for the design
of the programs.
Not more than 300 tickets are to
be sold, and the campus at large will
be allowed to purchase them only af-
ter the demands of the students of the
architectural school have been satis-"i
factorily met. The price has been
fixed at 5.00.

The gigantic Yost field house will
be transformed into a typical circus
for the Fair. About the sides will be
a curtain that drops from the front of
the balcony and forms the booths In
which sideshows will be held, red and

being used. At intervals of 13 feet,
wooden posts, painted in circus colors
and with a clown's head at the top of
each, will separate the booths.
Use Flags for Decorations
The balcony itself and the roof of
the field house will be decorated in the
national colors and with American
flags. Blue backgrounds for the
booths having concessions on the sale

of the national colors. The Johnston

the field house.

the Boilermakers 'were completely out-

into a triple tie with Ohio and Indiana
for fourth place while Illinois by
the Purdue defeat tonight slipped Into
third position.
In tonight's game, Chicago started
its scoring with the first whistle. The
half ended 18 to 5 and until two min-
