Republicans Will Be On Defensive I1
Struggle To Maintain Majorities
In Houses Of Congress
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 4. - Politics
will be the lodestone in the Arst ses-
sion of the 69th Congress, which be-
gins Monday.
Leaders of both parties will have
as their chief concern the writing of
records upon whicl they may go to
the country in the 1926 congressional
elections, which will crowd closely
upon the ending of the session.
The Republicans will seek to enact
a legislative program upon which to
stand in asking the voters to return
1 majorities for their party in both
houses during the closing two years
ofdthe present administration of Pres-
ident Coolidge.
Democrats Plan Program
The Democrats will devote their ef-
forts to focusing public attention up-
on what they will denominate the
shiortcomings of administration, legis-
lative and executive, under thetpower
of the Republican party, and to. out-
lining a program of government
which they would undertake to carry
into effect should they be returned to
the control of Congress.
In this process vast waves of words
will inundate both chambers, but more
especially the Senate, where there are
fewer handicaps upon flights of ora-
tory than in the House. In the latter
body many political "speeches" will
remain unspoken, but will find their
way into the Congressional Record
under the privilege of "extension of
In the campaign which will be inau-
gurated almost immediately after the
gavels fall on Dec. 7, and which will
be continued until next November,
there will be involved every seat in
the House and 33 of those in the Sen-
ate. The Republicans have comforta-
ble majorities in both houses and their
fight will be not only to retain them,
but to strengthen their hold.
In the contests for Senate seats,
however, the majority party will find
itself on the defensive at the outset
since 26 Republicans come up for re-
election against seven Democrats, all
of whom are from solidly Democratic
states in the South.
Without facing the necessity for de-
fending its home base, the Democrats
will plan their battle so as to carry
the offensive to the "enemy" at all
times, concentrating its heaviest ar-
tillery in those states of the East and
West where admittedly the contests
are likely to be close.
Among the 26 Republicans up for
re-election are many of the party
wheel horses. These include William.
M. Butler, chairman of the Republi-!
can national committee, and the Pres-
ident's chief spokesman in the Sen-
ate; Charles Curtis of Kansas, the Re-
publican floor leader; and James E.
Watson of Indiana, assistant floor

Dr. C. W. Kimmins, chairman of the

lieves that much of the success of the
English method may be attributed to
constructive legislation.
In recent years, according to Dr.
Kimmins, great enthusiasm has been
displayed for education in England.
Much of this eagerness has been due
to the Fisher law, which not only
supports all existing forms of educa-
tion, but also established nursery
schools for children under grade

paid tribute to the Merrill-Palmer
school for children in this country
as the finest he has ever known.

Recent Developments Indicate That
Ranks of Dry Forces Have
Suffered Losses
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 4.--The con-
fIlict that has enveloped prohibiton en-
forcement ever since its inception,
ind has gained new momentum in the
last few days, tonight was headed for
its original battleground, the floors
of Congress.
With the opening of Congress only
a few days away, both wets and drys
are forming their lines for attack andI
defense. Recent developments indi-I
cate that while some breaches exist
in the ranks of the prohibitionists,
the wets are counting on strong sup-
port. Among various proposals to be
presented to Congress, repeal of the
Volstead act will be sought by Repre-
sentative Dyer, of Missouri, ranking
Republican of the House judiciary I
committee and one of the wet leaders,
who heretofore has contended merely
for modification of the law.
The prohibition problem which was
taken to the White House yesterday
was carried across seas today with a
direct appeal to Pope Pius XI for
moral support of the "civil authority." .
It was made by the United committeeI
for prohibition 'enforcement, includingi
a number of Catholic and Protestant
reform organizations, which delivered
the complaint yesterday to Presidentc
The criticisms of the administrationh
contained in that communication2
brought reverberations within thei
committee today. The Methodistv
Board of Temperance, Prohibition and
Public Morals advised the President
that it was in no way responsible for
the committee's statemeht and that it
was still confident that enforcementt
eventually would reach perfection.-
President Coolidge was advised alsoe
by Mrs. Ella A. Doole, newly elected
president of the W. C. T. U., that herI
organization stood with the President
in his enforcement task.-
The breaches in the ranks of the
united committee were opened even
more definitely with the resignationst
of several members, who disapproveda
of the committee's complaint to Presi-c
dent Coolidge, incuding the Rev. Dr.
Clarence True Wilson of the Meth-
odist board, Olive W. Steward of In-
dianapolis, president of the Flying
Squadron foundation, and .Edwin C. I

of Good Templars.o

Balloting today on the proposals for
America's entrance into the World
court, further proved that the campusv
is in favor of the entrance of the I
United States under the reservationsf
of the Harding-Hughes-Coolidge pro-IN
posal. Although today's balloting wasf
not as heavy as that of yesterday, thet
sentiment was the same as that ex-2
pressed by the votes earlier in the1
week. The Harding-Hughes-Coolidges
proposals received 142 of the totals
of 327 motes cast today; the HarmonyI
Peace plan received 121 votes; 42
students voted against participation
in the World court under any terms;
and 22 students favored Senator
Borah's proposal.

The total ballots cast on the four
plans is as follows: Harding-Hlughes-
Coolidge proposal, 470 votes; Har-
mony Peace plan, 325 votes; Non-
participation, 129 votes; Senator,
Borah's proposal,292 votes. All votes
received at The Daily office, up to the
time the delegates to the National Col-
legiate World Court conference at;
Princeton leave, will be added to the
final ballot which is to be presented
at that conference.

Professor Dies

Prof. Filbert Roth


Founder And Professor-Emeritus
Forestry Department Was
Prominent In' Field


Prof. Filibert Roth, founder and
professor-emeritus of the forestry de-
partment, died yesterday afternoon at
his home in the Cutting apartments
after a long illness. He was 67 years
old. Professor Roth had been in
poor health for more than a year and
had been confined to his home since
August of this year, his condition hav-
ing become critical during the past
He was affectionately called the
"Daddy" of forestry students, being
the first professor of forestry at the
University. Up to the time of his re-
tirement in 1923 he had taught for-
estry longer than any nitn in the
country. According to Prof. L. J.
Young, of the department, Professor
Roth was the most prominent man in
the field of forestry, especially in sil-
viculture and forest management, in
the United States.
Professor Roth was born in Wur-,
temburg, Germany on April 20, 1858
and came to the United States in 1871,
coming directly to Ann Arbor. From
1871 to 1874 he lived in Wisconsin
with relatives, moving to Texas and
then to Montana, when 16 years of
age. He spent seven years there as
cowboy, hunter, wolf trapper, Indian
trader, and prospector, living the life
of a frontiersman. Returning to Mich--
igan, lie graduated from the Univer-
sity in 1890.
When Cornell founded the, first
school of forestry in the country in
1898 he accepted an assistant profes-
sorship, remaining there until the dis-
organization of the school three years
later. . 1
The following two years of his life
were spent as administrator of the
national forest reserves. He resigned
from that position to come to the Uni-
versity of Michigan as the first pro-
fessor of forestry, a post he held con-
tinuously for 20 years. In 1923, by the
action of the Board of Regents, he
was made professor-emeritus. The
same year Marquette university be-
stowed on him the honorary degree of
Funeral services will be held at 2:30:

Yost Arranges Games
There were persistent rumors that
Chicago may take on another inter-
sectional game in addition to Penn-
sylvania. Coach Yost of the Wolver-
ines has already arranged a schedule
of seven games, but no dates have
been set. The 1925 champions of the
Western Conference will play Minne-
