Mellon Tax Plan And
Bonus Bill
Grand Rapids, May 7.-(By AP)-
With Governor Groesbeck in complete
control, Michigan Republicans today
held a state convention which on the
surface at least was entirely harmon-
ious. There were undercurrents of
dissension, but the whole hearted sup-
port of the delegates, who gave the
Governor a tremendous ovation, swept
away the opposition.
After former congressman Joseph
Fordney, and former U. S. Senator
Win. Alden Smith' had attacked the
primary system and endorsed the pre-
primary convention method,; Governor
Groesheck toqk the platformn and dis-
agreed. He asserted that he is not
yet ready to believe. that tthe 'prInial
principle' is wrong
President Coolidge was lauded, thei
primary system was condemned, the
I Washington investigations were men-:
tioned, and the delegates went on re-
cord as opposed to the alleged demo-
cratic idea of making political cap-i
ital ofth em.
IAdjls ted corhpensation for ex-ser-.
vice men was endorsed, although i
President'Coolidge is expected to vetoI
the bilI enacted by Congress. The;
state conservation commission was
commended. ' In the resolution Gov-
ernor Groesbeck was paid a high
compliment. They declared that "it
is a pleasure to endorse the adminis-
tration of Governor Groesbeck" and
wvent on to compliment him for effici-
enev and business-like conduct.
The Mellon tax reduction plan was

their men into beating the new men'
in every event.
ohn Stuart was elected captain of

Cabot's Daughter
Still Critically
Ill, Says Messag
A telegram received yesterday by
the secretary to Dean Hugh Cabot of
the Medical school with regard te
the condition of his daughter Mary,
reads as follows: "International hos-
pital, Naples. Condition desperate."
The missive was not signed, but as
ample time has elapsed for the Dean
to have arrived at his daughter's
bedside, it is thought to have come
from him. No other news had been
received up to a late hour last night.

More than 400 Sophomores turned

manifested itself when every Sopho-
more resolved that his class would
win the class contest this week end.
Musical selections dominated at the
gathering, intermingled with talks by
George Snyder, '26, literary class
president, Jack Kelly, '24L, president
of the Student council, and Dean
Joseph A. Bursley. Circulars were
passed out after the meeting for dis-
tL:ibution over Ann Arbor urging all
of the class of '26 to come out to thei
rganization meeting today at 5 o'clock
in the assembly hall of the Union and'
to give support in the games.
Opening the program was an orch-,
