Would Allow Operation of System
Without Farm Bureau
Lansing, Mich., Feb. 27. (By A. P.).
-Complete separation of the Michigan
Agricultural cbllege extension system
apparently was aimed at in an ap-
propriation bill introduced in the
house today by Representative Aleck
Cowan, of St. Clair.
It provided for increasing the pre-
sent $160,000 appropriation for county
agents and extension work to $200,000
in 1925-26 and $250,000 in the succeed-
ng year. It was estimated by out-
state members that the amendment,
with, federal and county aid, would
make the operation of the system,
without farm bureau contributions
The Financial connection between
the local farm organization and the
county agent system caused a state
investigation, and a controversy be-
tween the state administrative board
and the state board of agriculture
some time ago. The administrative t
board then attempted to withold the
extension appropriation unless con-
tributions from farm bureaus were
discontinued. The agriculture board
refused and carried the conflict to the
Supreme court, where it was decided
in favor of the board of agriculture.
Another agriculture board bill was
submitted by Representative Dextert
book, which would compensate mem-
hers of the board at the rate of $10 a
day "for their services." The language
of the bill indicated that it would pay
six board members at the rate of
about $3,600 a year. They now serve
without pay. Representative Look de-
clared that the intention of the bill
was to pay them only for the days ac-
tualy spent in board woirlk, as oiher
state commissions are compensated.
He indicated the bill would be clari-
fied if necessary.

Washington, Feb. 27, (By A. P.).- ,
Without a single dissenting voice, the
Republican committee on committees
took the first step today towards car-
rying through the organization pro-c
grom for the removal of Senator La-
Follette of Wisconsin and three of hist
chief supporters, from the presentc
ranks of the standing committees ofi
the Senate. t
The four Senators were assignedc
tentatively to places at the bottom ofr
the committee list as though they had
been elected on an independent insteadI
of the Republican ticket. This actionc
is subject first, to consideration by a F
Republican party conference and later
by the Senate itself. ,
The action was taken over the writ- 1
ten protest of three of the Senatorst
-Brookheart of Iowa, Ladd and Fra-
zire of North Dakota-in reply to let-
ters sent them asking whether they
desired the demand of Republicans to
make their committee assignment. It
has received no reply from Senator h
186 A nswer Staff t
Tryout Call On i
More than 186 members of the un-
der classes have responded to the call t
for tryouts issued at the close of thec
first semester by the various campus
publications. Of this number, 55 aret
members of the fair sex, and 131 are
future masculine jqurnalists.
The Daily proved to be the lure that
brought out the girls, 30 of them be-
ing engaged in the competition for thet
work on Woman's page. This greatly
augments tle number available for
secretaries for upper staff members.
The men also flocked to The Daily,
the editorial staff claiming 43 and the,
business staff 37. For all publica- i
tions, business work and literary ex-
perience proved to be about equally
sought after the former claiming 90
devotees and the latter 96.
The complete list shows: Daily ed-
itorial, 73; Daily business, 40; 'Ensian
editorial, 6; 'Ensian business, 21;
Gargoyle editorial, 16; Gargoyle
busines, 19; Chimes business, 10.
Total, 186.
No call has been issued as yet by
the Chimes editorial staff, but try-
outs will have their opportunity to

Storm Develops When Cape Cod Canal
Purchase is Asked in
Washington, Feb. 27.-(By A. P.)-
Carrying more than 60 new proposals
added by the Senate today, the $41,
000,000 rivers and harbors authoriza-
tion bill tonight appeared to have en-
tered a stormy period in the Senate*
because of attempts to attach to it
several vigorously controverted meas-
ures as riders.
Senator Fernald, Republican, Maine,
late today proposed an amendment to
incorporate in the measure the House
bill for government purchase of Cape
Cod canal for $11,500,000.
Western senators, led by Senator
Gooding, Reptblican, Ilaho, imme-
diately launched an attack on this
amendment, and in turn proposed to
add to the Cape Cod proposal the
Gooding bill prohibiting lower freight
rates on long and short hauls over the,
same railroad route. The measure
was laid aside tonight before Senator,
Fernald had concluded his argumentj
in behalf of his rider and will be tak-
en up tomorrow with a lengthy fight'
in prospect unless both the riders are
disposed of.
Virtually all of the amendments to
the House bill proposed by the Senate
commerce committee were approved,
ncluding one to eliminate a provision
that all authorized projects should be1
completed within five years. This was!
done at the request of President Cool-j
idge, who was informed by Director
Lord that the proposal would seri-
ously hinder the program of the bud-
get bureau.
Work on the Union swimming pool
has been progressing to the extent that

At present the ien working on the

Washington, Feb. 27.-Nicholas,
Longworth, of Ohio, was selected to-
night as the Rcpublican candidate for
speaker of the next House. Mr. Long-
worth, who is the Republican floor
leader, was named over Represent-j
ative Madden, of Illinois, at a caucus
of Republican representatives elect.!
On the first ballot, Longworth re-!
ceived 141 votes and Madden 85. As
soon as the roll call was known, Mr.
Madden moved to make Longworth's
election unanimous.
After Mr. Longworth's nomination
had been made unanimous, Represent-
ative Pilson, of Connecticut, was
named to succeed him as floor leader.
Coolidge UrgestConference Program
Re Enacted Into Law At
This Session
Washington, Feb. 27.-With cooper-
ative marketing legislation recom-
mended by the agricultural c fer-
ence enmeshed in a jam of conflicting
proposals before Congress, President
Coolidge renewed today his insistence
that the conference program should
be enacted into law at this session.
He regards as necessary and sound
the proposal which was drafted by theI
representatives of all branches of
agriculture with expert assistance.
The Dickinson co-operative market-
ing bill, lacking the resolutory pro-
vision carried in the Capper-Haugen
bill for which it was substituted by the
House, is before the Senate agricul-
ture committee, and Chairman Carey
of the agriculture conference has ask-
ed a hearing before it tomorrow in op-,
position to the change,
Members of the conference are said
to hold the view that the Dickinson
measure could not accomplish the re-
sults they. believe could be obtained
through passage of the Capper-Hau-
gen bill. Members of the Senate
Farm bloc expect to call up this meas-
ure in the Senate tomorrow.
The McNary bill, providing for a
farmer export corporation to handle
surplus farm production, has been
reported favorably by the Senate ag-
riculture committee and placed on the 1
calendar, but with little hope of con-
sideration at this session.

Turns Loose Broadside Against Naval
Officers Who Hold Battleship
Supreme Defense
Washington, Feb. 27.-(By A. P.)-
Rear Admiral William M. Sims, re-
tired, turned loose before the House
aircraft committee today a broadside
of criticism against naval officers who
still hold the battleship supreme in
naval warfare, and also aimed his
fire against the proposal for unified
air service as urged by Brigadier Gen-
eral Mitchell, assistant army air chief.
While the admiral was declaring the
battleship "obsolete" and attacking
the navy for its "conservatism," Sec-
retary Weeks, who will appear before:
the committee tomorrow against cog-
nizance of the aircraft controversy
by making public a letter to Repre-
sentative Perkins, the committee ex-
aminer, declaring "untrue" recent tes-
timony before the committee that jun.-
for army officers are "muzzled from
telling the truth" by the War depart-
The War secretary previously had
denied the accuracy of this testimony,
and in his letter today he set forth the
War department's policy regarding
the testimony of officers before con-
gressional committees. The letter
pointed out that General. Mitchell had
been informedof the department pol-
icy in the matter, but did not mention
him directly as the witness who made
the "muzzling" charge.
A part of the letter also defended:
the War department against charges'
of "conservatism," which were reiter-
ated today with respect to the Navy
department by Admiral Sims.
