Sunmumons Sent Out To Morris, Sharp,
And Co. For Records On
Smith Estate
Washington, March 24.-(By AP)--
One section of the congressional mill
of investigation, the Daugherty com-
mittee, today stilled its wheels tem-
porarily because the illness of Senat-
or Wheeler in charge .of the investi-
gation and the absence of other sen-,
ators forced the committee to call offr
the hearing set for today to wind up
the story of Roxie Stinson, divorced
wife of Jesse Smith.
Also Chairman Brookhart announced
that the committee would be in recess.
until Wednesday but there is a possi-
bility that it may proceed tomorrow
if Senator Wh'eeler should be able to
return. He was confined to his desk
today with a severe cold.
The halt in the hearing may enable
Mrs. Mable Walker Willebrandt, as-
sistant attorney general, to conclude
other work on which she is now en-
gaged and be present to conduct Miss
Stinson's cross examination.
Today's recess in the investigation
enabled senators to look over the
field of possible witnesses and pre-
pare sub-peones. A summons was
sent out to the Commercial Bank of
Morris, Sharp and Company, Washing-
ton Court House, Ohio, the home of
Jesse Smith. The head bookkeeper was
was ordered to submit records dealing
with affairs of Smith in running down
a report that his estate was larger
than has been generally understood,
:iniid' alo that funds of the est'ite bad
been withdrawn from the Midland
Bank which is headed by M. S. Daugh-
erty, brother of the attorney general.

Noted Anthropologist Will Disess i
"Belief [i iRelicariation of
Siirit" Ton ight
Colonel Thomas C. Hodson, noted
anthropologist, who has been conduct-
ing classes in his subject at the Uni-
versity since the beginning of this
semester, is to be the principle speak-
er at 'a meeting of the Institute of
Religious Education, at -7 o'clock to-
night in Lane Hall under the auspices
of the Student Christian association.
Colonel Hodson is to talk upon theI
subject "The Belief in the Reincar-
nation of the Spirit."
This particular speech by Colonel
Hodson is considered one of his most
famous adresses, and was first given
before the Oxford Society in 1909. He
has repeated the speech many times
Colonel Hodson has contributed
considerable information of scientif-
ic, value to his study, and since his re-!
turn from India, in 1895, has become
one of the foremost anthropologists
of the day.i
In 1914 he entered the military ser..
vice, as an interpreter in the Indian
corps, and held at that tine the rankI
of lieutenant. At the close of the
war he was appointed acting director
of forestry, and held the rank of Co--
onel. He has written several books,
and numerous papers for the anthro-
pological journals, and his works,
"The Meitheis" and "The Naga Tribes
of Manipur" hve elicited considerable
I favorable comment.
The meeting tonight is to be open
to all interested. There will he dis-
cussion of the speech immediately
following the meeting.


Pedagogue Regarded as Jack of All
Trades; is Expected to Teach
All Subjects
That the business world in general
regards colleges and universities as
places to admire and avoid was the
statement made by Prof. Prdston W.
Slosson in an address last night on
"The Teacher as a Business Man" at
the Men's Education club meeting at
the Union. tie said that this results
from the fact that the teacher is gen-
erally believed to be isolated from
life, and that therefore the services
the teachers renders are impractical.
Professor Slosson denied this, as-
serting instead that the business man
is the one who is isolated from life
for he meets practically the same peo-
ple throughout his career, while the
teacher comes in contact with a wide
variety of youig men and women and
older people.
"Teachers are salesmen," Profes-
or Slosson declared. He said that al-
though they do not sell material
things they do sell their services,
which is exactly what the corporation
lawyer or broker does. "But the teach-t
er is not paid the salary of a business
man because the difference between 1
the skilled and unskilled teacher is
not immediately apparent as is the
difference between a good carpenterI
and a poor one. The ones who choose.
the teachers are not themselves
judges of good teaching, and accord-!
ingly they can have no basis on which
to base their estimate of the teacher's
"Ateacher is regarded as a jack of
all trades by many school boards,"
Professor Slosson said. "He may m 6

if he has specialized in History he
may nevertheless be asked to teach

or he may even be asked to teach1
singing although he may have no ear
for music. "American adaptability,"1
however enables the teacher to carry{
"Any attempt to change or in any
way to influence his method of teach-t

Senate Committee hearings Ceuter
About Possible Aggregate
Of Rebates
Washington, March 24.-(By AP)-]
Internal revenue bureau files on tax
returns of the Standard Steel Car
Company, the Gulf Oil corporation and
other concerns in which Secretary
Mellon, of the treasury department is
interested probably will be filed to-
morrow with the special- senate com-
mittee investigating the bureau.
Bureau officials told the committee
today that this probably would be done
in answer to insinuations by com-
mittee witnesses that Mellon's com-
panies had received preferential
I treatment in tax matters. The comn
mittee will also receive from the bur-
eau by request of Senator Couzens.
Michigan who has been conducting
the investigations, a copy of the bur-,
eau records of the tax statement he
received and which involved large fig-
ures. Senator Couzens explained that
he would present this record to show
the opportunity for graft that exist-
ed in the bureau.
Chief interest in to-days hearing
on the part of the committee members
went to the question of what the ag-!
gregate of tax rebates, or abatements E
or other allowances might be. The
officials present could not estimate
this, which is in addition to the tax
refunds made to the bureau and which
ran last year to more than $123,000,-

Position of Senators Me( ormilek
LaFollette on Rate Said
to be Doubtful


Washington, March 24. -(By A. P.)j
-The Mellon income tax rate schedulej
was voted into the revenue tonight by
the senate finance' committee in place
of the Longworth compromise adoptedS
by the house. This schedule, the cen-
ter of controversy in the tax bill, was
adopted by a vote of 8 to 7.
The committee is composed of ten
Republicans and seven Democrats.
Senator Gerry of Rhode Island and
Reed, both Democrats, were absent
tonight but were voted by proxy!
against incorporating the Mellon rates
in the bill so that the seven committee
members of that party stood as al
unit in opposition to that proposal.
The Republicans present were Senator
Curtis, Kansas, Reed, Pennsylvania,
Stanfield, of Oregon, and Smoot, Utah.
Those absent, but voted by proxy, I
were Senators Watson,. of Indiana,
Earnst of Kentucky, McLean of Con-:
necticut and Elkin's of West Virgina,
giving a total of 8'for the Mellon'plan.
The ,position of both Senator M'e-'
Cormick who is out of the city, and
of Senator La Folette, who is at home
here ill, :toward the Mellon 'rate has
? been. reported by Republican commit-
tee members recently as doubtful.
Chairman Smoot in saying that the
pr'oxies of these two Senators had
'not been asked for did' not go go into=
the reasons.

Saturday. The affair was stagbd un-
der the auspices of the Big Ten club,
an organization composed of alumni
of all of the Conference schools,
R. Winfield Adams, baritone soloist
with the club, sang several selections.
Ohio State gave several vaudeville
acts for its share of the program. Per-
haps the biggest hit of the evening.
it was said, was the medley of school
songs given by the Big Ten club chor-
isters. The local club, under the
guidance of George Oscar Bowen, gave
several groups of chorus singing, their
efforts being mainly toward a more1
classical type of entertainment than!
was offered by Ohio State. Booth's
orchestra furnished some of the in-
strumental music on the program.
The local club arrived in Cleveland
Saturday evening and stayed at the
Winton hotel. A dance in the Masonic
ball room followed the concert.
