WITNESS IN HEARING
ON DISASTER
EASBY IS COUNSEL
Major Harry Leonard Presides Oyer
New Sitting; Foley Relieved
At Own Request
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 1.-The Shen-
andoah naval court of inquiry decided
today to begin tomorrow an investi-
gation of statements by Mrs. Margaret
Ross Lansdowne, widow of Comman-
der Zachary Lansdowne, that Capt.
Paul Foley, as judge advocate, under,
took to influence the testimony she
gave before that court concerning the
accident which took the lives of her
husband and 13 other officers and men.
Inquiry Is Deferred
Reconvening after a recess of a
month, the court deferred the begin-
ning of this new phase of the inquiry
at the request of Major Henry Leon-
ard, a retired marine corps officer,
who was appointed judge advocate
last Saturday after Secretary Wilbur
had relieved Captain Foley of that
duty at his request. Major Leonard
said he had not had time to complete
his examination of the record of the
court in .the previous hearings.
The new judge advocate announced
that he would call as the first wit-
ness, Charles B. Parmer, a correspond-
ent of the Universal Service, who
quoted Mrs. Lansdowne in a newsi
story to the effect that Captain Foley
had sought to influence her testimony.
This was before Mrs. Lansdowne made
her charge in testimony before the
Mitchell court martial.
Mrs. Lansdowne To Testify
Mrs. Lansdowne is to follow Parmer
to the stand and later Captain Foley
will be heard in his own defense.
Several other persons, including those
pre ent at the interyjew between Cap-
tain Foley and Mrs. Lansdowne, and
those who saw the statement Captain
Foley prepared for Mrs. Lansdowne,
which she was to adoptsasher state-
ment to the Naval court, also have
been summoned.
Captain Foley will be represented at
the inquiry by counsel. He retained
James S. Easby Smith, a prominent
lawyer of this city today.
Minnesota's 90
Piece Band Will
Arrive Saturday
Minnesota's band of 90 pieces will
be here next Saturday to urge on the
efforts of the Maroon and Gold foot-;
ball team. A telegram, received yes-
terday by T. C. Schneirla, president of
the Michigan band, announced the
resolution of students and Minne-1
apolis business men to support the
band trip financially ,and stated that1
$5,000 had been raised to make the
trip possible.
After the band arrives in Ann Arbor
at 9 o'clock Saturday morning, on a
special train from Minneapolis, it will
parade up State street to the Union
where it will make its headquarters.
Following the game the honorary fra-
ternity group of the band will enter-
tain the visitors with a smoker at the
Union.t
In discussing future plans of theb
Iylichigan band, Schneirla said that I
hereafter only two out of town trips
would be made. These can be made
under the band's own finances accru-
ing from the student allotment fund.

Band expenses are startling, Schneir-
la remarked, the cost of Michigan's1
trip to Wisconsin being $1,500, and that
of the Illinois band to Pennsylvania
game being $8,700.

PROHIBITION LAW
INVOLVES TAXES
Ways And Means Committee Discusses
Levy On Cereal, Beverages To
Aid Enforcement
OBJECT TO ALCOHOL TAX
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 16.-Taxes be-
came involved with prohibition en-
forcement today in the discussions of
the House ways and mean committee
in its preparation of a revenue bill.
A sub-committee took under con-
sideration suggestions of Assistant-
Secretary Andrews of the treasury, in
charge of prohibition enforcement, to
impose either a one-cent-a-gallon tax
on cereal beverages or a $100 occupa-
tional levy .on brewers to .give prohi-
bition enforcement officials power to
inspect beer breweries. Mr. Andrews
had informed the committee that
power to inspect these plants was
necessary to check the "flood of high
powered beer."
Committee members also were de-
luged today with telegrams of pro-
test from drug manufacturers against;
the proposed 50 per cent cut in the
tax on alcohol. The manufacturers
argued this would encourage boot-I
legging, and Representative Rainey,
Democrat, Illinois, said he would ask
the committee to reconsider the pro-
posed cut in the alcohol tax and re-
move instead the levies on stock and
grain exchange transactions and
those applying to deeds and convey-
ances.
The committee will meet tomorrow
for the first time since last Thurs-
day, and will receive a report from
the sub-committee which has beenj
working on administrative provisions
of the new bill.
CASES INVOLING SIP
SIZURES AR POMNEO
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 16.--Twelve
cases growing out of the war time
seizure of German ships and property
about New York were indefinitely
postponed today by the Supreme court.
The action was based on represen-
tation by the claimants that Congress
at its approaching session was ex-
pected to settle the questions involved

by enacting legislation providing for
payment for the property seized.
The government has opposed the
steamship company's efforts in court
on the ground that the courts should
not award compensation until Con-
gress had directed such action and
had established an agency to make
award.

DAROW TO SPEK
ON CRIME TONIGHT,
Lecture Is First Of Union Committee
Series; Noted Lawyer Attended
Law School Here
TICKET SALE IS LARGE
More than 800 tickets for the ad-
dress of Clarence S. Darrow in Hill
auditorium tonight were sold at one
store alone yesterday, the first day of
the ticket sale, and there is every in-
dication, according to Robert Price,
'27, chairman of the lectures commit-
tee of the Union, that the criminal
lawyer will have a capacity audience
here. Mr. Darrow will speak on
"Crime-Its Cause and Treatment" at
8 o'clock, being introduced by Dean
Alfred H. Lloyd of the graduate school.
The lecture tonight will be the
first of a series now being arranged by
the Union lecture committee in which
an effort is being made to engage the
popular type of speaker. The com-
mittee feels fortunate in securing Mr.
Darrow to speak to Michigan stu-
dents at this time due to the fact that
this will be his first public address
in some time and that he has not yet,
accepted offers to speak at Yale, Har-
vard, Princeton, Cornell, Dartmouth,
and Pennsylvania. It is believed that
Mr. Darrow chose to speak to Michi-
gan students before all others largely
because of the fact that he attended
the Law school here in 1877-78, al-
though he is not a graduate of the
University.
Mr. Darrow has been practicing law
for many years and today is consid-
ered to be one of the foremost c-j
inal attorneys in the country. He be-
came particularly prominent in the
Loeb and Leopold case and the recent
Scopes trial in Tennessee. At the
present time Mr. Darrow is engaged
in the Sweet case in Detroit.
Tickets for tonight's address which
are 50 and 25 cents, will be on sale
again today at Slater's book"store, and
the Calkins-Fletcher stores. Tickets
will also be sold at Hill auditorium
tonight, starting at 7:15 o'clock.
TEN ENGINEERS
ARE INITIATED
INTO TRIANGLES
Accompanied by the metallic clang-
ing of a large iron triangle, ten neo-
phytes scrubbed their way through

and H. R. Stevenson.
Following the initiation in the after-
noon, a banquet in honor of the new
members was held in the Union.
Joseph A. Bursley, Dean of Students,
gave the main address of the evening
on behalf of the faculty. Thomas
King, '27E, extended a welcome to the
new members, while Thomas Cranage,
'27E, responded for the initiates. John
Lovette, '27E, acted as toastmaster for
the occasion.-
Forest Service .
Makes Extensive
Study Of Taxes
Nation-wide study of the forest tax-
ation problem in relation to reforesta-

tion of privately-owned lands is being
launched by the forest service of the
United States department of agricul-
ture, which recently announced the
appointment of Prof. Fred R. Fair-
child of Yale university as director of
the investigation.
A detailed study of forest taxation
will be made in all principal forest
regions to determine the effect of pres-
ent tax laws on reforestation and
timber holdings, and the conditions
that must be met in any effort to read-
just present tax laws to be fair to
land owners and public treasuries.
According to Prof. . V. Jotter of
the forestry department, there is a
rather prevalent opinion that by set-

General Andrews Emphasizes Serious-

In This Country
CHERRINGTON SPEAKS
(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, Nov. 16.-The challenge
of an unfinished task was emphasized
by national law enforcement officials,
and state and national temperance
leaders addressing the 51st annual
convention of the National Women's
Christian Temperance union here to-
day.
General Lincoln C. Andrews, chief
of the federal prohibition forces, Dr.
Ernest C. Cherrington, general secre-
tary of the World League Against Al-
coholism, Rev. F. Scott McBride, gen-
eral superintendent of the Anti-Saloon
League of America, and others, stress-
ed the seriousness of the present sit-
uation in this country, and necessity
for awakening a national conscious-
ness and inspiring a great and united
effort for effective enforcement.
The purpose of the American prohi-
bition forces, Dr. Cherrington said,
is to take "the gospel of prohibition
to the rest of the world."
"We must enlist the moral forces
of other countries to bring such pres-
hure on their governments," said Dr.
Cherrington, "as will help free our in-
ternational border of Rum Row and
Smuggler's Row, which under the pro-
tectiondof foreign flags, are seeking to
break down our laws and defy the con-
stitution of this nation."

headquarters for all alumni on every
occasion; how old friendships are re-
newed many times by means of the

peach night of the drive, when the en-
tire day's reports will be compiled
