Washington, ,. C., April 10.-(By A.
P.)--President Coolidge, addressing
members of the Women's - National'
Committee for Law Enforcement from
the south portico of theWhite House
today told them sitcessfu 'law en-
forcement depended prirmarily upon
the. measure of. public'sentiment for
observance of. law. . " sometimes
wish,"the"President said, "that peo-
ple would put a little inore emphasis
upon the observance o. the law than
they do upon 'its enforcement. - It -is
a maxIm of our institutions that the
government does not make the peo-
ple. hlt the people make the govern-
mrent. -That- is why -a gathering, of
this kind is so encouraging to me."
The president who received:the com-
mittee after they had heard addrsses
on the subject by the two new mem-
bers of his cabinet, Attorney General
Stone, and Secretary Wilbur and other
speakers, emphasize that the only
practical means for stimulating respect
for law was ceaeless "awakening of
the conscience to movements such as

a determination that there shall be a
new order of things."

'Germany has not even paid her own
internal debt-her debt to her own
people-which probably amounts to
more than 30 or 40 billions of dol-
lars," he continued. "What she has
done has'tbeen to cancel her debts
with worthless paper, paper which
has an infinitely small value."
"England, whose share of the war
was almost as large as Germany's,
hh-s paid off her internal debt com-
pletely, and with money that was,
comparatively, at par. France has
also paid off her enormous debt, and
she paid it with currency which was
only slightly depreciated."
When asked what he thought would
be a fair amount of reparation for
Germany to pay, Mr. Hughes said,
"Of course it is possible that the fig-
ure set by the Reparations commis-
sion, 33 billions of dollars, may have
been too high. It is extremely diffi-
cult to say exactly what Germany can
pay. Up until now she has paid a
billion dollars a year, five billion in
all. But increasing population will
increase her ability to produce, and
thereby increase her capacity to pay."
Mr. Hughes favors the suggestion
made by General Dawes' commission
on reparations that the reparations'

MacDonald Labor government in Eng-
land, Mr. Hughes said that many peo-
ple thought that the advent of the
labor party in England meant the ad-
vent of some form of Russian Bolshev-
ism. "These people," he hastened to
explain, "are the only ones who are
disappointed with the working of thej
labor government thus far."
1 The MacDonald government may
fall' at any time, according to the
Australian statesman. Ile expects
the English labor leader to bring for-
th some matters of domestic or for-
eign policy on which he will not havej
a majority, thus necessitating an ap-
peal to the people. Mr. Hughes be-1
lieves that in all probability this is-
sue will be a question of naval policy,
possibly the Singapore Base issue.,
Mr. Hughes, who h-imself has been
connected with every Labor govern-
ment in Australia since 1904, believesl
that the MacDonald government is at
least attempting to satisfy the essen-
tials of a good labor government,
that is, the improvement of the condi-
tions of the masses, the abolition of
privileges and privileged classes, as
such, the giving to labor a largerI
share of the wealth which it produces,,
and a high standard of living condi-
tions for all people.



15 Men Selected by Coach; But
Sophomores Chosen for


Michigan's Varsity baseball squad,
composed of Coach Fisher, Manager'
White and 15 players, will depart at=
5:30 o'clock this afternoon from the'
M. C. station. for their annual invas-
ion of the South. The first game will
be played tomorrow with the Univer-
sity of Kentucky nine at Lexington.
The final selection of players was
made yesterday afternoon, with five
pitchers, two catchers, seven regular
fielders and one utility man included
'in the selection.
The infield will line up against Ken-
tucky with Wilson on first base, Giles.
on second, Dillman at short stop and
George Haggerty on third base. Bach-
man will play in left field, Kipke will
cavort in. center field and -Coleman
will play the right field. Captain Jack
Blott will play behind the plate, with
Baker as relief catcher. Deview will
act as infield and outfield utility man.
Coach Fisher will probably use two
men on the mound in the initial con-'
test.. Stryker is due to get the first
calf, but it is not known who will re-
lieve him. The remaining four twirl-
ers to iake the trip are Benson, Shoe-
smith, Torrey and Jablonowski.
The first four named pitchers have
seen service on the Varsity squad be-1
fore, but ,Stryker is the only one who
has earned his "M." Torrey was on
the squai two years ago but was
forced out by an injury and was un-
able to play last season. Benson and
Shoesmith were on the squad last year
with Benson getting into several
of the games. Jablonowski is the
best looking pitcher of the sophomore.
Wilson is the only regular fielder
who is a sophomore. Giles and Dill-
man were substitute fielders last sea-
son, while Haggerty was Varsity sec-
ond sacker.. Kipke is the only veter-

Class B will be eliminated. The new
changes in the marking system in the
literary college were also adopted.

Bonus Bll, Passed b3 House Gets
Consideration froyn Senate;
Postpone Act'on
Washington, D. C., April 10.-(By A.
P.)-Lines for the major contest of the
revenue bill in the senate were de-
finitely drawn today by lannounce-
mnent of Democrats on the income tax
plan they will propose as a substitute
for the Mellon rate placed in the mea-
sure by finance committee republicans.
The bill as framed by the, finance
committee was introduced in he sen-
ate by Chairman Smoot, who said he
expected to call it up for considera-
tion next week. Senator Robinson,
Arkansas, democratic leader, joined
Chairman Smoot in the suggestion
that the bill be taken up next Wed-
The income tax schedule, introduced
by Senator Simmons, North Carolina,
ranking Democrat on the finance com-
mittee, is a radical departure from
I the plan of Garner, Democrat, Texas,
which was supported by house Demo-
crats, and approaches very closely,
the Longworth compromise rate
adopted by the house.
It provides for a maximum surtax
rate of 40 per cent applicable on in-
comes of more than $500,000. The
house maximum rate was 37 1-2 per
cent on incomes over $200,000. The
rate on $200,000 in the Simmons pro-
posal is 38 per cent. The maximum
rate in the Garner plan, was 44 per
cent, on all incomes over $92,000.1
The committee bill would make the
maximum surtax rate 25 per cent on
all incomes over $100,000.
Senator Simmons announced that
the plan he proposed today would
raise three million dollars more re-
venue annually than would the In-
come bill carrying the Mellon normal
surtax rates.
Meanwhile, the senate finance com-
mittee took up today the soldiers{
bonus bill passed by the house and
which Republicans of the committee
have agreed to support. On request

The first annual faculty-student
mixer was held last night under the
auspices of the Student Christian as-
soc ation and the Union in the assemb-
ly hall of the Union which was pract-'
ically filled by the men who gathered
to hear the comedy, satire, and novel-
ty numbers of the program. I
Faculty men of all colleges and a
wide representation of students were
present to create the laughter of the
evening. Special music by a student
orchestra and the University Glee
club, short talks, and refreshments
completed the program. Thomas J.
Lynch, '25L, and Harry C. Clark,
'24, spoke for the students, while Prof.
F. N. Menefee of the engineering col-
lege, Prof. Joseph Hayden of the pol-
itical science department, and Col. H.
W. Miller of the engineering college
represented the faculty.
Charles Livingstone, '25, and J. K.
Dunn, '24, headed the committee in
charge of the mixer. Assisting them
were a number of sub-committees.
To illustrate the success of the first
mixer, committeemen point out the
banner attendance, the unusually
friendly spirit of those present and the,
fact 'that many groups of students re-
mained to talk with faculty men moreI
than 30 minutes after the mixer, while}
two groups remained with faculty
members more than an hour.
