Upper House May Try To Replace Cuts
In University Demands, Is
Lansing, April 6.-Without discus-
sion and without a dissenting vote the
House tonight passed the University
of Michigan appropriation bill carry-
ing $1,300,000. No attempt was made,
to even partially restore the figures
to the original request of more than
$3,000,000. The 'amount designated
would expend $900,000 for a museum
and equipment and $400,000 for land.
The bill now goes to the Senate,
where it is rumored some endeavor
to secure increases will be made.
The House, speeding along for an
early adjorunment so the members
might attend a counter attraction in
the shape of a boxing match passed
half a dozen other appropriation bills,
by attaching the affirmative roll call.
They included the Michigan Agricul-
tural college building and improve-
ment bill calling for $1,041,000, the
maintainance and operation bill for the
same institution with a total of $520,-,
00'0, the department of public safety
bill providing $90,000 for the construe-
tion of barracks of the state police
and the Newberry State hospital main-,

Washington, April 6.-American
policy regarding arms traffic control
are being worked out in detail through
inter-departmental discussions at the
State department which will continue
until just before the delegation sails
for Geneva to attend the international
conference May 4 under the auspices
of the League of Nations.
Broad aspects of the instruction to
be given the American delegates al-
ready have been considered by Secre-
tary Kellogg in conference with Sec-j
retaries Weeks, Wilbur, and Hoover,I
and the continued study is expected
to produce detailed proposals for such
modifications in the tentative conven-
tions to be considerated at Geneva asI
are deemed necessary to bring it into
closer harmony with American policy.
The delegates, who are yet to be'
named by President Coolidge, will be
assisted in Geneva by expert advisors
including army and navy officers of'
rank, representatives of the commerce
department and authorities on inter-
national law and practice.
The tentative convention was draft-
ed to make effective projects of arms
traffic control originally proposed in
the St. Germain agreement which
proved unacceptable to several powers,
including the United States. The new
proposal is confined strictly to con-
trol of the arms traffic and the invita-
tion to the Geneva meeting was ac-
cepted by the Washington government
on that basis.
