Witnesses Summoned From East By
Senator Walsh in Effort to
Rebutt Testimony
Great Falls, Mont., April 21.-(By
A.P.)-Legal counter-manouevers be-
gan today at the trial of Sen. Burton
I-H. Wilson, as his attorneys took up
the defense of their client, who is
charged with wrongfully appearing
before the Deijartment of the Interior
to prosecute oil prospecting permits
after his election to the Senate.
Without asking for a direct ver-
dict, Thomas J. Walsh, chief of de-
fense counsel, began the examination
of witnesses as the court convened
this morning. He announced later
that lie had summoned four witness-
es from the East in an effort to con-
travert the testimony of the govern-
ment's star witness, George P. Hayes,
New York attorney.
The government also had its in-
ning when one witness testified that
Edwin S. Booth, former solicitor for
the Interior department, was in com-
munication with Hayes in March.
1923, regarding the affair of Gordon
Campbell, Montana oil operator, for

Wheeler prosecuted permits before
the department.
A two day adjournment of the trial
was seen when Senator Walsh re-
quested Federal Judge Frank S. Deit-
rich to allow time for defense wit-
nesses to arrive from the East. The
government offered no objections, and
Judge Dietrich took the request un-
der advisement. His ruling will be
made tomorrow.
Senator Walsh said he would pro-
duce a witness from Washington who
would testify to long distance tele-
phone records in an effort to check
Hayes' testimony.

Senate Adopts Amended Appropria
tions For Other Institutions
Of State
Lansing, Mich., April 21, By A. P.-
Nine house appropriation bills repre-
senting millions of dollars to main-
tain the state's eignt hospitals, and
making appropriation for the state
military and naval establishments,
bearing amendments recommended
by the senate committee on finance
and appropriations, were adopted by
the senate today and sent back to the
house for concurrence in the amend-
As amended the bills showed in-
creases of more than $500,000 over
the recommendations of the house
ways and means committee. Four
house bills, making appropriation for
maintenance and operation of the
state normal schools, were passed to
third reading without change. In the
case of each of the normal and hospi-
tal bills, the salaries of the president
and medical superintendents were in-
creased $1,000 annually.
In addition the bills considered on
the floor, 13 measures were reported
out of the committee on finance and
appropriations with increases total-
ling several million over the grant
made by the house. Among these
bills was included the fifth normal
school bill bearing an appropriatin
of $350,000. The latter bill, which
has passed the house, would author-
ize the construction of a fifth normal
school in the northern part of the
southern' peninsula. The site would
be chosen by the state board of edu-
cation. An amendment was submitted,
giving to the state administrative
board supervision over the disposi-
tion of funtds used in construction
and maintenance.
Although the bill has not been re-
ported, the committee favors that the
University of Michigan mill tax grant
for maintenance and operation be in-
creased for the next two years by
$1,500,000. At the present time, the
University receives $3,000,000 an-
nually for maintenance. The com-
mittee recommends removing the
limit and allowing the University
