on the third strike however and De-

to the plate and after fouling four

Contest Expected To Start Bitter
Fight: Party Lines Sharply
Washington, April 26.-(By A)--
The senate will launch into the income
tax rates the crux of th'e controversy
of the revenue bill Monday under a
program announced today by Chair-
man Smoot of the finance committee
in charge of the measure. Most of
the non-controversial committee
amendments have already been dis-
posed of.
The contest is expected to precipi-
tate .the most bitter legislature fight
of the session in which party lines
will be sharply drawn. A showdown
will be demanded first on the Mellon
rates, placed in the bill by the finance
committee Republicans in place of the
Lonkworth compromise adopted by
the house.
Virtuallyhadmitting thetfutility of
obtaining the adoption of these rates,
Republican organization leaders man-
oeuvered today to defeat a practically
solid Democratic lineup for a sched-
ule calling for higher sur taxes and
lower normal rates than the Mellon
Chairman Smoot said if the Mellon
rates were reiected he would , offer
a succession of amendments going up
step by step on the maximum .sur tax
rate. .A schedule lower than tha~t pro-
posed by the Democrats and about .the'

Bertrand Russell, the distinguished
English physicist, philosopher, econ-
omist, and lecturer, and the scion of,
a great English house, will deliver a
University lecture at 8 o'clock Tues-
day night -in Hill auditorium. He willl
speak on "The A B C of Atoms.",
A Fehl'ow of Trinity College, Cam-
bridge, and a special professor of
philosophy at Harvard, Mr. Russell is
perhaps better known as a philosopher
than as a physicist, although his sub-
ject will be concerned with physics.
His lecture, however, is said to be of
a non-technical nature.
Professor Russell was supposed to
have arrived in America last Janu-'
ary and to have started on a lecture
tour of the country immediately, but
due to an attack of pneumonia he was
delayed until the first week of this
month. He will remain in AmericaI
until June.,
A long lecture tour has been ar-
ranged for him, including the Uni-
versities of Columbia, Cornell, North,
western,- Brown, Dartmouth, Bowdoin,
Smith, Gambier, Oxford, Wisconsin,
and Michigan. More than 50 other
lectures have also been arranged for
him, among which are lectures at New
York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washing-}
ton, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Cincinnati, I
St. Louis, Chicago,* Milwaukee, St.
Paul and Minneapolis.

Students drinking, politics, leaders,

discussion yesterday morning in tej

onference of deans and. advisors of
In the opinion of the majority 'of
he delegates, student drinking is on
he decline. This seems especially
rue of the northern and western
chools. The general concensus of
pinion among the deans seems to be
hat students will not indulge in drink-
ing, ordinarily, unless the temptation
s placed before them.
Dean Howard McClenahan of Prince-
on explained the system in use atl
hat university. He said, "Princeton
ries to. exercise a paternal attitude
oward her students. If a man is
ound with liquor in his room, wheth
r there is any evidence of drunken-
ness or not, we send him home to
alk it over with his father for a week.
We have 'found that this is the most
effective method of dealing with such
cases; out of 70 men who have been
sent home in this manner there has
been only one man who has repeated
he offense."
The delegates then discussed the
evils connected with campus politics,
with the majority of- the opinion that
campus offices are being taken out of
politics more and more every year.
Dean S. H. Goodnight of the Univer-
city of Wisconsin said, "Campus elec-
ions as a whole at Wisconsin are not
run by politicians. The only office
which still remains in politics is the
chairmanship of the Junior Prom,
which is the biggest social event of the
year and is desired by every frater-
nity as rushing material."
In discussing student leaders, Dean
E. E. Nicholson of the Ugiversity of
Minnesota explained the system in
use at his school by which the honor
ocieties pick those men who appear to
be potential campus leaders and' de-
velop them, so that they may be qual-
ified to carry on the work of the uni-
versity in their turn.
Deans L. H. Hubbard of the Uni-
versity of Texas, C. C. Engberry ofj
the University of Nebraska, and S. H.-
Goodnight of Wisconsin explained the
systems of management and control
of student publications at their re=
spective universities. Dean J. A. Bur-
sley and R. C. Angell, assistant to the
dean, explained the system as it ex-
ists at Michigan.
