REQUEST FROM $3,192,700
TO $1,300,000
Reduction Comes After Original Bill
Was Favored By University
Lansing, March 27, (By A. P.)-The
request of the University of Michigan
for $3,192,700 for buildings and land
was cut to $1,300,000 when it was re-
ported out today by the House ways
and means committee. If the recom-
medations of the committee are fol-
lowed the only items authorized by
the legislature for the next two years
will be $900,000 for a museum and
equipment and $400,000 for land.
The drastic reduction came after the!
bill had been favorably acted upon
by the University committee in its
original form. According to Represen-
tative Loomis K. Preston, chairman
of the University committee, the mem-
bert agreed unanimously to allow the
college the entire requested amount.
When it reached the ways and means
committee, however, it was pared to
meet the estimated available funds.
There is little liklihood that the

house will over-ride the ways and

ward in the Senate was expressed by
the university friends, however.
The reduction in the appropriations

$600,000 asked for an administration1
building, $465,000 for an observatory,

Un iversity May
Get $375,)000
In Gift Fund
The University of Michigan receives'
a fund of $375,000 from the estate of
Silas Wright Dunning, '60, who died
last May, according to items appear-
ing in the New York papers on Thurs-
day. No confirmation of this report
had been received up until late yester-
day by the University officials.
The will directed that the fund
shall be used to purchase books and
periodicals for the University library
MIt.- Dunning left an estate appraised
at $456,747, of which $450,194 was in
securities. He divided the bulk of
the estate into trust funds and small
bequests to nephews, nieces, and more
distant relatives and gave one-twent-
leth of the estate outright, and three-
fourths of the principals of the vari-
ous trust funds to the University of

Bulletin Prepared By Regents
Sets Forth Burton's Policies

Pointing out the needs of the Uni-
versity, a bulletin has been published
by the Regents and is being mailed to
the alumni of the University residing
in the state of Michigan. The bul-
letin was prepared primarily for the
information of the members of the
legislature of 1925 in consideration of
the requests made by the University
in the appropriation bill asking fox
"In particular, the removal of the
limitation of the proceeds of the mill
tax, with a consequent increase in the
income of the University for current
expenses, is crucial. It is a question
of this, or retrenchment and retreat.
"On February 18 our beloved Presi-
dent, Marion LeRoy Burton, was tak.

college Dean Mortimer E. Cooley of
the Colleges of Engineering and Arch-
itecture was presented with a large sil-
ver loving cup by the engineering and
architectural students at the general
engineering assembly which was held
in Hill auditorium yesterday morning.
Upon the cup was engraved the in-
scription "An expression of the ap-
preciation and affection of the stu-

ceive, by every legitimate means, your

the bulletin concludes.
By the means of graphs and charts
the bulletin points out the needs of
the University concerning increased
income, land and buildings. Three
reasons are given for the need of an
increased income; because more stu-
dents mean more expenses, because an
l increased plant costs more to main-
tain, and because expenses have
grown faster than income.

Medals won by the various contest-
ing athletes in the Michigan-Cornell
track meet will be officially presented
at the banquet which will be held at
10:30 o'clock tonight at the Union.
The entire track squads of both Michi-
gan and pornell will be guests at the!
dinner which is under the direction of
the recently organized Blue Kay club.
The Cornell banquet has been held
for many years upon every occasion
that the track men from Ithaca have
come to Ann Arbor. In the/past it
has been the custom to have a formal
banquet but this year the affair will
be informal. The number of tickes
placed on sale has been limited to
225 since the capacity of the main
dinning room of the Union prevents
more than that number being sold.
Five acts of entertainment have been
secured by the committee in charge.
These acts will consist in amateur
singing and dancing numbers, a xylo-
phone number by J. C. Hyde, and two
professional acts brought from De-
troit. The Varsity quartet will also
appear on the program. The regular,
Union orchestra will furnish the
music for the affair.
More than 40 Cornell, track men
will attend the banquet and the Michi-
gan squad which will be composed
of 50 men. The presentation speech
will be the only address during the
program. The medals will be present-
ed at the conclusion of the entertain-
A few tickets at $1.25 each may still
be secured at the Union and from the
various members of the Blue Key club.
Launch Attack
On Socialism
At Wisconsin I
Oshkosh, Wis., March 27.-(By A.
P.)--Declaring that the University of
Wisconsin "is the spawning bed for
a great variety of socialistic laws,"
and that "this socialism at Madison!
forms an unsen but strong link be.
tween the university and the state
capitol," R. 0. Wipperman, secretary
of the recently formed state organiza-
tion of regular Republicans in a state-
ment today demanded an investigation
of the alleged socialistic activities. He
said a recent move in Ohio to rid uni-
versities of that state of the taint o1
un-American activity was significant
of the situation in Wisconsin.
"The taxpayers of Wisconsin who
contribute heavily to the support of
the university, should at once begin
a thorough investigation of the mat-
ter," he said. "The sooner the uni-
versity confines itself to the purpose
to which it was created and the state
capitol confines itself to the making
and executing of wholesome laws, the
better it will be for the citizens."
* More than 150 couples attended the
annual Crease dance given under the
auspices of the law classes last night
at the LaW club. The lounging room,
which ws used for the party, was
decorated with maize and blue lights
in the wall sockets, and palms placed
around the edges of the floor.
One of the outstanding features of
the evening was the "Michigan
Crease" the newspaper distributed
during the intermission. The paper
consisted of a series of stories giving
accounts of the imaginative capers
of the prominent professors in the
law school. Harold B. Desenberg '25L,
edited the sheet.
Among the other specialities was a
group of popular selections on thel
fguitar by Reginald Eastlake,"Spec.,
who is director of the Woman's Man-

dolin club. Kennedy's Six of Dia-
monds played for the dance, and
Harry B. Grundy, '26L, was general
1 chairman.

Forty members of Cornell's track
team will arrive in Ann Arbor at 9:40
o'clock this morning preparatory to
the Annual Michigan-Cornell dual
meet to be held tonight in the Field
house. Tonight's meet will be the
thirteenth to have been held between
the two schools, Michigan having won
nine of the preceding clashes.
Coach Steve Farrell's outfit of Michi-
gan track stars is favored to win this
evening's affair because of its pre-
vious performances. The Wolverines
have a series of smashing victories in
the Illinois Relays, the indoor Con-
ference meet, and the recent Cleve-
land relays to their credit while the
Cornell team has a victory over Yale
as its only noteworthy performance
this year. In addition Coach Moak-
ley's team has been severely handi-
capped by the sickness or injury of a
large number of its stars and if
it fails to give Michigan a close race
tonight it will be largely for this rea-
That the - Cornell injuries are no
pipe dreams is indicated by the fact
that no less than seven who were ex-
pected to take points from Michigan
were forced to abandon the trip. Good-
willie, one of the finest sprinters in
the East and a sure point winner,
and Vermillye, a good half miler,, both
turned their ankles during the past
week. Novotny, a six foot high jumper,
Craig, the best Cornell two miler,
Severence and Fuller, both crack
quarter milers, and Prytherch, a two
miler, are all out for the present
with illness or minor injuries.
In spite of their handicap, however,
the Big Red team will invade Ann
Arbor today with the hope of beating
the Western Conference indoor cham-
pions. Cornell's hope of winning the
meet will rest in its ability to take
the secondary points in the majority
of events and to pile up a large num-
her of points in one or two events in
which it may be able to take firsts.
Such Michigan stars as Captain Jim
Brooker, DeHart, Hubbard, Les Witt-
man, Charlie Reinke, Dick Freyberg,
and Charlie Munz will make first
places hard for the Cornell team to
take and the high jump will be prac-
tically the only event In which Michi-
gan will not be able to present a for-
midable amount of competition.
Going down the list of events it is
not difficult to give Michigan forty
points before the start of the meet.
The half mile, mile, two mile, the 60
yard dash, and the pole vault are
almostcertain to be Michigan's, while
the 440 and low hurdles should give
Michigan five or more points. The
shot put will be hotly contested be-
twoen the two teams, the high hur-
dles will probably go to the Red, and
the high jump is almost certain to
furnish the visitors with more than
five counters. The mile relay will be
another event which will be in the
air inasmuch as both have only a
pair of high class quarter milers.
Michigan ought to come out ahead
in the first event on the program, the
60 yard dash. Wittman, Hubbard, and
Sterling have all been showing great
form lately in the field house. Hub-
bard ran the 50 yards in 5 2-5 at the
Indoor Conference meet and Wittman
only missed taking second by an inch.
Sterling gave Evans of Illinois a hard
race for fourth place in the Conference
meet. Bill Parker, Michigan's fourth
entry in the dash is a good sprinter
who has not yet reached his best
form but he may place against the
Ithacans. Russell, Graef, Weight, and
Mitchell are the four Cornell entries
in the event, Goodwillie being out with
injuries. Russell is the only one of
the quartet who should be able to
press Hubbard and Wittman.
