American Members Confident That A
Satisfactory Settlemiat Will
Be Finally Reacned
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 3. - Members
of the Italian and American debt com-
missions, in the absence of formal
conferences today, took advantage of
the opportunity to get- more thorough-
ly acquainted with details of problems
confronting them in their efforts to
reach an agreement for funding
Italy's war debt.
There were unmistakeable signs.
that members of the American com-
mission had arrived at definite con-
clusions as to the maximum to which
Italy can be expected to go in terms.
The indications were that, in arriving
at these conclusions, the Americans
had met with no surprises in consid-
ering the statements of Italy's eco-
nomic and fiscal situation and out-
look, submitted yesterday in connec-
tion with statistics independently ar-
rived at by American experts.
The latter studies have presented
conclusions not far from those con-
tained in the 21 documents which

House Will Begin
Work On Bill ToE
Decrease Taxes
03v Assocated Press)
WASHINGTON Nov. 3.-Public
hearing of the proposals for revision
of the revenue law was completed to-
day by the House ways and means
committee, and it will start work
Monday on ,a bill to reduce taxes.
While asked by Secretary Mellon to
keep the reductions within a total of
$300,000,000 a year, a number of com-
mittee members were prepared to go
beyond this mark to accomplish the1
wide spread revision in rates desired.
In this connection President Cool-
idge let it be known that he sees no
harm in going above this limit, if ne-
nessary, and the belief prevailed to-
night that the committee would rec-
ommenid a reduction of at least $350,-
000,000 on the annual federal tax bur-
Prosecution And Defense Alternately
Score Victories In Mitchell
Court Martial Tribunal
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 3.-Prosecu-
tion and defense counsel battled to a
tie today with the court martial tri-
bunal, trying Col. William Mitchell on
charges of conduct prejudicial to good
order 'and military discipline, sitting
as umpire, and finally adjourning the
contests until Monday.
The prosecution, headed by Col.
Sherman Moreland, scored first, when
the court declined to free the air offi-
cer on a motion by Rep. Frank R.'
Reid, civilian defense counsel, who
contended that not a scintilla of evi-
dence of guilt has . been presented
against the air officer. The defense
then ,scored its victory, the court de-
ciding that it shold be permitted to
call what witnesses it believed neces-
sary, and directing the prosecution "to
take immediate steps to proceed" with'
the summoning of the long list of wit-
nesses and the production of the
voluminous records from government1
flies it had requested.
A compromise on the request to
summon three cabinet officers, Secre-
taries Davis of the War department,
Wilbur of the Navy, and Jardine of
Agriculture, was effected, by the de-
fense and prosecuting attorneys at a
conference called later in the day. It
'as agreed that the presence of the
cabinet members in court would be
{ waived, provided the records in their
{ possession were produced by authoriz-
ed agents.
American Workman
Is Highest Paid
According to a survey recently
made by the international labor office
of the League of Nations, the Ameri-
can workman is the highest paid in
the world. The purchasing power of
the wages paid in the various coun-
tries were used as the basis of com-
parison rather than the actual amount
of-,1money paid. The statistics were
gathered in 19 leading cities in as
manyountries. Placing the purchas-
ing power of the wage paid in London
at 100 per cent, it was found that
Philadelphia's figure was 183. In oth-
er wdords the laborer in this city can
buy' 83 per cent more with his earn-
ing than can the workman 'in Lon-
don. Ottawa, Can., was second to

r Philadelphia with a figure of 148 per
cent, Sidney, Aus., third with 140 per!
- cent, London fourth with 100 per
cent, and Copenhagen, Den., fifth with
97 per cent.

Groups Whose Songs And Dances Will
Form The Backbone Of The Show
Selected From I00 Tryouts
Selecting the largest personnel in
history for the men's and women's
chorus of the 20th annual Union opera,
E. Mortimer Shuter, director, yeLer-
day announced the names of 48 men
whose dances, songs, and costumes
will be largely responsible for the
almost assured success of "Tam-
bourine." The choruses this year
were picked from the largest field of
tryouts that the opera has ever seen,
several hundred men students having
received consideration since the first
call last spring.
Because of the fact that the chorus-
es are the backbone of the show, every
selection was made by Mr. Shuter
with the greatest care. Further than
the unusual talent exhibited by near-
ly all of the men chosen, Mr. Shuter
believes that the personnel of the two
choruses this year is truly represen-
tative of the student body, and that
the University will be proud to have
such' men come in close contact with
the alumni and thouands of others
during the opera trip.
The choruses worked for several
weeks last spring under the personal
direction of Roy Hoyer, dancirg. part-
ner of Fred Stone, and a this time
were instructed in the rudiments of
chorus dancing. Since that time they
have been given dance numbers from
time to time, until now the work con-
sists entirely of rehearsing each num-
ber over and over again. Rehearsals
are now held every day, and occasion-
ally twice daily for both choruses.
There will be no let up in this re-
spect until the first performance, Mr.
Shuter said.
The men's chorus is as follows:

Two hundred and fifty thousand 'dollars to provide a suitable mem-
orial to the literary class of 1926, has been voted by the memorial coe-
nmittee of that class. With the approval and endorsement of President
Clarence Cook Little, the faculty of the literary college, and the Board of
Regents, the committee unanimously adopted a resolution which provides
for this fund.
The plan by which this memorial fund is to be raised is patterned
after the system which has been in existence for many years in eastern co
leges and universities. It provides that all members of the class take out
20 year endowment life insurance policies with a concern which has been
chosen, each policy reading for $250 or more at the student's discretion,
The premiums on the policy will be payable annually at the rate of $10a
year for twenty years, at which time
the total with acrued interest of $50
an e M eeting will be turned over to the trustees of
