ParIs, Jan. 3.-(By AP)-The ra-
ages of the Seine floods are becoming
more tragic in the suburbs, though
the city officials remain optimistic as
concerns Pari. Their optimism is
not shared by many thousands of per-
sons crowding the bridges who are
watching anxiously as the water line
creeps closer and closer to the high
mark of 1910..
The most serious situation is at El-
fortville, just east of Paris, where the
swollen river Marne is sending down
a rush of water that is carrying away
embankments and flowing so swiftly
through the streets adjacent to the
river that the residents are unable
to get away without the help of boats.
Means to succor these floodbound
people were insufficient tonight and
calls for help were heard from houses
where anxious faces at the windows
gazed distractedly at the inpouring
torrents.
The authorities. {re using 'evey
effort to 'aid the marooned people
but many will have to spend the night
in ho.uses where the ground floors
are well awash.
There is some comforting news
fromthe basin of the Seine, whence
comes the biggest part of the flood;
it is to the effect that the affluents
of the river are subsiding, though
further off there are still great-quan-
tities of snow, which unless the weath-
er grows colder, will continue to melt
rapidly, again swelling the streams
that pour Into the Marne and the;
Seine.

M RCIIATION1
Washington, Jan. 3.-Chairman Win-
slow of the House interstate com-
merce committee and Secretary Hoov-
er, with the advice of the aviation
experts, are engaged In drafting a
new legislative proposal designed to'
increase the efficiency and use of com
mercial aircraft. The main purpose
Mr. Hoover said today, is to establish
a federal system of airplane inspec-
tion, which would give some guaran-
tee of security to the public as to
the safety of machine and appliances
for passenger carriages, sport, or ex-
hibition.
MAanufacturers of aircraft generally
are anxious for such a federal policy
Mr. Hoover added, pointing out that
a bill brought forward by Senator
Wadsworth, Rep., New York, for a sim-
ilar purpose passed the Senate last
year' but failed of enactment in the
House.
FOLOWING BREAKDOWN
Reports received at The Daily of-
flice late yesterday indicated a gen-
eral improvement in the condition of
Howard A. Donahue, '24, man ging
editor of The Daily, who is confined
to his home in Lansing by a general
breakdown.
Donahue was found in an uncons-
cious condition near his home Tues-
day 'night, and an early diagnosis in-
dicated pressure on the brain. Sub-
sequent examination proved this de-
cision to be incorrect, and the phy-
sician in attendance expects that Don-
ahue will be able to return to the
University within two weeks.

Comedy Club To

OFFER KIPKE COACHING
POST WITHMIAMI STAFF
Columbus, 0., Jan. 3.-(By AP)-
Harry Kipke, Michigan's football and
basketball star, may become a mem-
ber of the coaching staff of Miami

An innovation will be offered by the
Comedy Club in their third program
to be presented Thursday, Jan.10, in
Sarah Caswell Angell. Hall at 8:15 o'-
clock, consisting of two one-act plays
"At the Hawks Well" by William But-
ler Yeats and, "The Key"by Franz
4Molnar. Both of these plays are of
a type not commonly seen in Ameri-
ca and neither of them have been
produced before in this country.
"At the Hawk's Well", is Yeats most
recent play and in his most modern
manner. It is an Irish dance drama
and tells a weird, fantastic story of
man's quest after immortality," thel
water of a hidden spring that seldom'
flows symobilzes his desire. The old
man who has wasted his life in the
search falls asleep at th ecrucial mo-'
ment, while the young man full of
conflence and hope is distracted by
the purely physical and sensual beau-
ty ofa kawk.
Marian Miller, '24, who takes the
prominent part of the Hawk, studied
'for some time under Ruth St. Denis
and Ted Shawn, while Gordon Wier
'25, is already well known for his un-
ique dances. The cast includes I-or-
tense Road, '24, Donald Snyder, '25
Robert Henderson. '26, Elwood Fay-
field, '25. The cast of "The Key" in-
cludes Mattie Proudfoot, '24, and Rhea
Schlaak, '24.
As a further corroboration of the
significance of this program, the Com-.
edy Club has been invited to present
the plays before the Ypsilanti Play-
ers the following day in the Ypsilanti
Playhouse.
