The Week's News
In Brief
President Coolidge was quoted as
saying in a telegram that he was try-
ing "to deliver" Muscle Shoals to
Henry Ford. The inference was that
the gentleman from Detroit would
step out of the presidential race pro-
vided he was allowed to step into
Muscle Shoals. The President denied
all responsibility for the statement.
Senator Norris, who opposes Ford's
ownership of the big power project
and who advocates a bill proposing
government operation, said: "If Ford
really seeks Muscle Shoals just to
spend the rest of his life helping
the poor, regardless of the thickness
of his own pocketbook, let his menj
here support my bill and we'll make
Ford governor of the plant as a $1
a year man."
President Coolidge publicly en-
dorsed the proposal that immigrants
ineligible to citizenship (Japanese) be
excluded from the United States. He
held conference all week with various
legislators because, although he want-
ed (1) to exclude them, he also wanted
(2) to be polite about it.j
Franklin D. Roosevelt, former as-
sistant secretary of the Navy, was
chosen manager of Governor Al,
Smith's presidential campaign. He,
like Governor Smith, favors modifica-
tion of the Federal Prohibition En-
forcement law.
Governor Smith's increasing popu-
larity as Democratic nominee has
made prohibition once more the most
important issue in the Democratic
platform. If McAdoo gets the nomin-
ation the platform will be dry; if Al
gets it the platform will be wet.

Galli-Curci Hums
Under Quarantine
At Arizona Line
Yuma, Ariz., May 3.-Tripping gaily
down the "sawdust trail" at the state's'
quarantine station here yesterday,
Mme. Galli-Curci, opera singer, en
route from California to Phoenix for
a conlert 'engagemerit, hummed a
song of praise for Arizona's strict pre-
cautionary regulations as she sub-
jected herself to the disinfection and
inspection process imposed on all rail
passengers coming into the state from
"Everything must be done to pre- I
vent the spread of the foot and mouth
disease," the singer declared.

Revival of the old custom of
singing in the Union taxi room
took place last night, when Har-
rison Dickson, '24E, started
things going by playing the
piano and the crowd present
joined the impromptu program.
Everyone in the crowded tap
room aided the song fest, and
two song birds, R. Winfield
Adams, '24, and Philip I'. La
Rowe, '25, gave entertainment
on the spur' of the moment.
For some tima the Union man-
agement has been attempting to
encourage the old tap room
gatherings of yore, and in this ex-
temporaneous program are seen
the first fruits of the policy.
From appearances, those pres-
ent at the singing last night en-
joyed the program, applauding
in the customary fashion of
pounding on the tables and

Wasington, May 3.-(By AP)-Its
.program for checking rum running al-
ong the Atlantic seaboard under way,
the treasury today turned its atten-
tion to the Canadian border.
Coast guard crews will attempt to
check rum running by boats In the
deep waters of the Great Lakes, and
custom service agents will be respon-
sible for all ports of entry and with
prohibition agents will direct their at-
tention to rum running by land and
on small streams.
The Canadian distilleries and brew-
ers unhampered by their government
are aiding in the smuggling according
to reports received here and Judge
Moss said the treasury's task was to
build a wall of agents that would per-
mit as little as posisble of the liquor
to leak through. -
Prohibition agents at all cros ings
and those scattered between customs
have been equipped with motorcycles
with which they can guard the bor-
der more closely It is the cities how-
ever where the treasuries greatest
problem lies. Detroit was said to
present th worst of the situations, as
was indicated by an unofficial report
that one brewer across the river from
that city last year paid the Canadian
government an export tax of approxi-
mately $300.000 on the basis of 50
cents a case of beer. Most of it is
said to have conie to the U. S
One phase of the situation at De-
troiti the treasury is powerless to
deal with. Excursion boat owners of
the U.. S. side are daily becoming
more aroused, it is said because Can-
adian owned steamers can pick up
loads of excurionists on the Detroit
side go back to their own landing
stock their bar rooms and go ino wat-
ers on the Canadian side of the lake
for a flourishing business. The treas-
ury however is determined that the
passengers shall not become pocket
flask smugglers.
Wasngton, May 3.-(By AP)-The
soldier bonus bill was sent to Presi-
dent Coolidge late today from the
capital where legislative action was
completed with the signing of the
measure by President Cumming of the
The measure reached the wihite
house within a few hours after the
president had sent a message to the
senate announcing that he had vetoed
the Bursum pension bill, because it
would add many millions of dollars
annually to the cost of government.
A reading of that message streng-
thened the belief long entertained by
a number of senators that President
Coolidge would veto the bonus bill.
The executive will not take immediate
action as the measure first will be
sent to the treasury for a nestimate
of costs and the views of Secretary
.Mellon. Later it will probably go to
the veteran's bureau in which its ad-
ministration would be lodged.
Should th'e president return the bill
to congress without his approval an
effort will be made to pass it over his
veto and proponents in both the sen-
ate and house assert that they can
muster the required two thirds.
