For Archaeological Meet
in Chicago
Prof. Francis W. Kelsey of the La-
tin department arrived in New York
on the Leviathan Monday, after hav-
ing been in Asia Minor nearly a year
with an expedition organized by him-
self. A large part of his time was
spent in the work of excavating the
ruins of the ancient city of Antioch,
half a mile from the modern Turkish
town of Yalovatch.
Pofessor Kelsey is expected to ar-
rive in Ann Arbor on November 18,
and will remain here until Februaryl
when he will start on another expe-
dition. George R. Swain, photograph-
er of the present expedition, return-
ed Tuesday morning to Ann Arbor.
Find Remains
At present excavating is being car-
ri'ed on in the ruins of an ancient1
Christian church on what is believed
to be the site where Paul and Barna-!
Fas preached to the Gentiles. The
floor is of mosiac work in five colors,
most of it well preserved, and it bears
the date of "374 A. D." Tire nave,
which has two aisles, is 200 feet long.
The party also uncovered a temple
which was dedicated to the Roman
Emperor Augustus, the ruins of a
huge triumphal arch, a semi-circular
colonnade, and a triumphal gateway
35 feet high, which was over the prin-
cipal entrance to the city. Both the
gateway and the arch had military
figures modeled in relief. Professor'
Kelsey believes that the arch was
thrown down by an earthquake. I
To Present Papers .
Direction of the work of excavation
has been done by Dr. F. W. Robinson
of Johns Hopkins university, assisted;
by a staff of six men. Permission forj
the work was obtained by Sir William',
Ramsay of England, who is regarded
as one of the formost authorities on'
ancient documents and monuments of
Asia i\Iinor.
The data secured from the expedi-,
tion will be used in part for papers
which are to be presented at the meet-
ing of the American Archaeological
society to be held soon in Chicago.

Washington, Nov. 12. (By A. P.)-
Tax reduction at the coming short
session of Congress will not be at-
tempted under present plans by the
administration, and although some
congressional leaders have expressed!
a desire to take up such legislation, it
now appears that attention will be di-
rected primarily to appropriation and
farm measures.
It is understood that Secretary Mel-
lon, who conferred for more than half
an hour with President Coolidge to-!
day, considers it impracticable to at-,
tempt to reopen the tax question at
the three mpnths session, with a new
law just going into effect.
Administration officials point out
that the actual results of the new law,
relative to the surplus available for
further reductions, will not be felt
until after Dec. 16, and the benefits
of the new rates will not be received
until payments are made next year
on this year's taxes, leaving oppor-
tunity to survey the entire situation
carefully before concentrating upon
the tax question.
What Congress itself may attempt 4
without recommendations from the
administration, is regarded as throw-
ing to some extent an element of un-
certainty into the situation now crys-
tlizing, as the December session ap-
Several congressional leaders also
are already proceeding for an extra
session after March 4, to take up tax
reductions and other measures.
