Names Amounts For Administration,'
Museum, Observatory, and
Architect Buildings
Lansing, March 16.-(By A. P.)-
An appropriation bill, requesting $3,-'
192,700 for building an improvement
at the University of Michigan in the
next two years, was introduced in the
House tonight by Rep. Loomis Pres-
ton, of Berrien county.
The bill calls for $1,700,000 in 1925-
26 and $1,492,700, in 1926-27. The
items speciified are $300,00 each year
for an administration building, $450,000
each year for a museum and equip-
m4ent, $250,000 each year for an obser-
vatory and equipment, $200,000 eacha
year for an architectural building,
$500,000 the first year and $327,700 the'
second year for land.
Two years ago the legislature ap-
propriated $3,800,000 for a hospital,
medical building, tunnels, sewers and

University. Although this amount isa
considerably less than it was hopeda
would be realized from the exhbit,c
it will serve as a substantial sumt
with which to begin the new year inI
the fall.
The inclement weather, togetherc
with several campus events takingt
place at the same time, caused a de-c
cided slump in the attendane on
Friday and Saturday, only a portion
of the number of visitors that were
expected, attending the show. How-a
ever, the entire $1,500 taken in at the
door of Yost field house, will be di-
rected towards the support of thef
band for the current year. This willt
partly relieve the musical organization c
of the responsibility of raising suf-
ficient funds to meet the expenses of
trips, during the football season.-
Two of the motors which were ona
display at the field house as a part
of the show, were presented to thet
automotive school of the University
as a gift to be used for testing andf
experimental work.
Jerusalem, March 16.-The Arabc
peasant party, which is in opposition1
to the Palestine Arab executive, made1
known today its decision to accord a
cordial reception to Lord Balfour
when he reaches Palestine for the;

is promised that the members of they
party will not participate in any dem-
onstration of protest or strike.

This action of the Arab peasant1
party came as a sequel to an open

Arab executive to Sir Herbert Samuel.

sale until March 28. The invitations
will be o&tainable at the booth sit-
uated in University hall. All students

double, blue, calf-skin cover contain-
ing the announcement. The cover is
laced on theleft side with blue raw-
hide while the design occupies the
greater part of the center. The de-

angle upon which rests a blue "M."
A narrow gold line connects all four
gold squares.
The seal of the University of Mich-
igan adorns the upper part of the
rectangle while under it appears
1925 and then under this is "Literary."

battles, when Coach Sullivan's Mich-
gan boxers meet the College of the
City of Detroit in seven feature bouts

are under consideration and good
bouts are assured.
Both Sklar and Marowitz put up good
fights in the Detroit tourney, and with
the added experience can be counted
on for better showings. Smyser andl
Dingman of Michigan and Detroit City
College respectively will fight at 145
pounds. The heavyweights, Dickinson
and Buckley, the former the campus
champion, will furnish the action in
the bout before the feature affair.

New York, March 16.-A physician's
certificate stating that Paavo Nurmi
was ill last Saturday night and there-
fore unable to appear at a track meet
in Hartford, Conn., was handed today
to Frederick W. Rubien, secretary of
the National Amateur Athletic union,
to whom the Connecticut Amateur
Athletic union protested after Nurmi
had failed to go to Hartford.
Mr. Rubien said the certificate giv-
en him by Hugo Quist, Nurmi's man-
ager was "satisfactory to him" but
that before action could be taken he
must await the report of the Metro-
politan A. A. U. which has jurisdiction
over the runner. This report, itwas,

Sustainment of Action By Judge May
Keep Former Secretary From
Witness Stand
Cheyenne, Wyo., March 16.-(By
A. P.)-Jumping speedily from onei
critical point to another the Teapot
Dome lease annulment suit came to a
head late today in a legal haze over
the question whether M. P. Eeverhart,
Pueblo, Colorado, banker and rancher,
would be sustained in his refusal to
testify regarding a deposit of Liberty
Bonds he handled for Albert B. Fall,
former secretary of the interior, on
the ground that he was within his
constitutional rights.
Everhart, a son-in-law of the for-t
mer secretary of the interior, refused
to ansewer questions put by Owen J.
Roberts of government counsel, re-
garding whether or not he took $90,-
000 in Liberty Bonds to the First Na-
tional Bank of Pueblo, of which he is
a director, and deposited them there
with instructions that they belonged
to Fall. He declined to answer on the
ground that to do so might incrim-
inate him.
Counsel on both sides took opposite
views as to whether a witness in such
a position was the sole judge as to
whether or not his answer might in-
criminate him. A long argument fol-
lowed, after which federal judge T.
Blake Kennedy took' the question un-
der advisement.
Questioned as to what would be
done if Everhart were sustained by
Judge Kennedy in his refusal Mr.
Roberts said:
"If Everhart is not compelled to
testify further, I don't think we will
take the trouble to call Mr. Fall to the
Fall is here under subpoena but
doubt has been expressed as to wheth-
er he would testify.

Holm Discusses I
Army's Influence
In Peace TimesI
"What the Army Does in Peace"
was the subject of an address given
by Capt. Ion C. Hom at the regular c
dinner of the Exchange club held lastt
night at the Union.e
Capt. Holm traced the influence ex-8
erted by the Army in the development
of the country, beginning with the
Lewis and Clark expedition which
spent two years in exploring and sur-
veying unsettled regions as far west
as the Pacific, after the Louisiana
Purchase. Some of the services ren-
dered by the Army in times of peace
were enumerated by Capt. Hom as
follows: protection of pioneers, en-
couraging and building of 'railroads,
surveying, construction of canals andI
light-houses, prevention of disease,
and various kinds of relief work.
A large part of the Army's present
peace-time activity is taken up with
different kinds of training schools,
according to Capt. Holm, this branch
including technical and mechanical
as well as military training, as shown
In schools for skilled workers and

various types of specialties, garrison
schools, and the like, besides the reg-
ular R. O. T. C. work and citizens
training camps.
Other branches of constructive mil-
itary work includes: -experiment, in-
vention, civil government of island
possessions, improvement of water-
ways, and the issuing of permits for
bridge building.

Twelty-first Annual Production Will
Be Given All Week; Matinee
"Castles in Spain," the twenty-first
annual Junior Girls' play, will have its
premier at 8:15 o'clock tonight at the
Whitney theatre. The firt perfor-
mance will be for the Senior women
only, who will attend en masse, wear-
ing their caps and gowns for the
first time.. This custom marks the
origin of the annual production which
was begun more than a decade ago
as an impromptu entertainment for
the graduating women.
This year's play will give six per-
formances, playing every night this
week and matinee Saturday. More
than 150 members of the Junior class
are in the production, which has been
in rehearsal since Christmas vaca-
tion. "Castles in Spain" is the work
of a committee composed of Ruth
Carson. chairman, Helen Ramsay and
Lucy Wilson; it has been directed by
Amy Loomis, '22 who is the first
woman to be in charge of the presen-
tation. Miss Loomis is replacing Prof.
John R. Brumm of the journalism de-
partment, who has been the director
for many years in the past.
The music and lyrics are all the
work of junior women. There are 14
musical numbers in the play, which
will appear in the scene and will be
on sale at the theatre during each
performance. The dancing has been
worked out by a committee with the
aid of Miss Loomis and is said to be
much more modern and fast than that
of previous years.
"The first act of "Castles in Spain"
is set in a dormitory on the Michigan
campus and the second act takes place
in a village of northern Spain. The
Spanish atmosphere has given many
opportunities for striking costumes
and unusual music and dancing, ac-
cording to those who have been pres-
ent at the dress reheasals. The cos-
tumes which were made expressly for
this production by Christy & Co. of
New York are said to be as beautiful
as any that have ever been used in
past performances.
The seat sale for the six perfor-
mances has been remarkably good,
according to Eunice Rose, the busi-
ness manager, but there are a few
good seats left for all the perfdr-
mances. No men will be admitted to
the performance tonight, but the gen-
eral public may attend any of the
other presentations during the week.
The tickets may be procured starting
at 1 o'clock today at the box office of
the Whitney theatre. The price of
seats is as follows: entire orchestra,
$2.50; first 4 rows of the balcony,
$2.00; the next 4 rows, $1.50 and the
remaining seats of the balcony, $1.00.
The gallery will not be open during
any of the performances.
All senior women will meet at 6
o'clock tonight at the Union.
Students Refute
Claim That Bible
Is Out Of Style
Fears which have been prevalent
among educators, religious fanatics,
parents, and grand parents, that the
Bible is becoming unpopular as read-
ing material among the younger gen-

eration have been proved to be un-
founded by an enterprising reporter
of The Daily. After carefully pre-
paring a questionsire and computing
averages with great exactness, he has
reached the conclusion that 96 per
cent of the students have read the
Bible at one time or another.
Add to the strength of this argu-
ment the fact that out of this 96 per
cent who have read the entire book,
it may be said that the youth of our
universities are not on a decline in
spiritual matters.
Little preference was indicated for
either the New or the Old Testament,
most of the students having read por-
I tions of both books. Church affilia-
tions seemed to have no effect upon
what book they have read nor upon
the. amount of reading which they had
In spite of this indication of reli-
gion, it was found that 98 percent of
those who have read the Bible think
that it should be interpretated liber-
ally, and with "a grain of salt."
