prevailed. C

(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 17.- Seeking
to aid prohibition enforcement offic-
ials in their efforts to check the "flood
of high powered beer," the House ways
and means committee today approved
a new tax of one-tenth of a cent a
gallon on cereal beverages to be in-
corporated in the revenue bill it is
This levy, probably the only new
one to be provided by the measure,
will give prohibition enforcement of-
ficers power under the Volstead act
to inspect near beer breweries, As-
sistant Secretary Andrews of the
treasury in chargeof the prohibition
enforcement, told the committee.
A move to reconsider the action by
which the committee cut in half the
tax of $2.20 a proof gallon on alcohol
was rejected. Jug manufacturers have
opposed the reduction on the theory
that it would tend to encourage boot-
legging in alcoholic products.
Holding its first meeting since
Thursday, the committee took action
on a number of administration pro-
posals virtually clearing up its work
on these technical details.
Approval was given a proposal to
permit the filing of tentative returns
on the date when regular returns are1
not required, to be followed within1
three months with the filing of final

"I Have Devoted My Time To Crime
Because It Is Important
To Society"
Attributing crime as largely due to
poverty, lack of education, and sub-
normality, Clarence S. Darrow, noted
criminal lawyer, told an audience of
more than 4,000 last night in Hill
auditorium that crime will not be de-
creased on a large scale until people
reach the point of view that it is bet-
ter to save human life than to destroy

banquet which will be held at 6
o'clock tonight in the Union. Sen.
Woodbridge N. Ferris, educator and
Democratic political figure, will speak
to the gathering on "Loyalty".
In discussing "Loyalty" Senator
Ferris intends to apply it to the solu-
tion of present day crime problems
and to the rigid enforcement of law.
His experience in the Senate has put
him in a position to study American
social conditions from every angle1
and he has spent much time in study-1
ing crime causes in the United States.
Senator Ferris is known to be an



His lecture "Crime--Its Cause and
Treatment," was the first of a series
to be given by the Union lecture com-
mittee. Dean Alfred II. Lloyd, of the
Graduate school, introduced Mr. Dar-


extemporaneous speaker, and his
oratory has made itself felt several
times in the Senate on important is-1
sues. He has engaged in politics,
state and national, for years. So high
was he esteemed by Democrats of this
state, that his name was placed in
nomination for president at the last i
national Democratic convention in
New York city.
For Years An Educator
The upstate senator has been an
educator for years, and has manifest- I
ed unusual interest in the develop-
ment of the fine art of public speak-I
ing among the younger generations.
His interest in the subject and his
exceptional speaking ability were,
largely the reasons why Senator Fer-
ris was preferred above other na-
tional figures by Oratorical associa-
tion officers to give the principal'
speech at the annual banquet.
The faculty representative at the
banquet will be Prof. R. D. T. Hollis-
ter. He will give a short address.
Prof. Oscar J. Campbell of the Eng-'
lish department, will be toastmaster.
Burton B. Sibley, '27L, will speak as1
representative of the student body.
William C. Dixon, '26, president of the
Oratorical association, will give a
short address of welcome.
All Campus Invited
All students on the campus have
been extended an invitation to attend
the banquet this evening, regardless
of interest in the subject of public
speaking. Patrons of the Oratorical
association lecture course have also
been invited to the affair by the presi-
dent, Dixon. Many members of the
Ferris clubs in this vicinity and re-
presentatives of several high schools
are expected to attend the annual
Tickets were placed on sale Nov.,

yet a number of them available, and

Killeen Appointed
Custodian Of Jug
Prof. Earle G. Killeen of the Univer-
sity of Minnesota music school, has
