.Acton Follows Committee Meeting In
Which Coach Admits He Was
Under Contract
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Dec. 12.-Columbia
university officials announced tnight
they had withdrawn their offer to
Knute Rockne, of Notre Dame, to be-
comedhead coach of the local football
Action by the Columbia football
committee followed a long conference
this afternoon with Rockne, during
which he admitted he was already
under contract to the University of
Notre Dame, where he has acted as
coach for eight years.
In an official statement, the Colum-
bia also said Rockne had signed a
three year contract to coach football
at Columbia effective next spring, but
made no attempt to explain Rockne's
apparent failure to reveal the exist-
ence of his contract with the Indiana
intitus ion while negotiating the new
agree ent.
Columbia's statement follows:
"Mr. Knute K. Rockne signed an
agreement on Dec. 1 to act as head:
coach of the Columbia football team
for the periods of the next three years
at a stipulated salary subject to the
approval of the Columbia university
committee on gthletics.
"The football committee presented
the agreement to the University com-
mittee on atheltics on Dec. 11, recom-
mending its approval. Thereupon the
S university committee on athletics ap-
proved the agreement and the an-
nouncement of Mr. Rockne's appoint-
inent as head coach followed.
"At the time this contacrt was
Bade, Mr. Rockne stated that he was
not under contract to the University
of Notre Dame. It now appears, both
from statements by the Notre Dame
authorities and by Mr. Rockne him-
self, that Mr. Rockne was in fact,
and still is, under contract to the
University of Notre Dame.
'The Columbia committee would
not have offered a contract to Mr.
Rockne or any other man, or appoint-
ed him as head coach if it had known
that he was under contract to another
university, and regrets the entire sit-
uation. In view of the foregoing, the
appointment of Mr. Rockne is with-
Due to heavy student travel north !
from Detroit via Mackinaw City the
night of Dec. 18, the Michigan Cen-
tral railroad has found it necessary
to arrange a special section, sche-
duled to leave Detroit at 8:30 o'clock,
city time, that night. This train will
carry all extra Pullman cars bound
for Sault Ste. Marie, Marquette, Calu-
met, and intermediate points, and was
previously scheduled to leave Detroit
at 10 o'clock.
For student travel to points south
of the upper peninsula, a train will:
leave Detroit at 10 o'clock, as sche-
duled. The change in the first sec-
tion was made in order to get all the
cars across the straits, where only
one ferry is available, according to
C. E. Vekovius, travelling passenger
agent of the Michigan Central.
A large number of student reserva-

tions have been sold on the train
which has been changed, and the
Michigan Central calls attention tol
the new arrangement in order to pre-!
vent students from missing the prop-
er section, which would mean a 24
hour delay in their trip home.

Twenty lour Debate Brings Ap)roval
Of Both 1-,ijor Parties; Sponsors
Predict lPssage Of Measure
(By Associated Press)
WVASHING ION, Dec. 12.-The $325,-
000,000 tax reduction bill reached the
-lest stag:. in the house taday, and
Monday some of its major provisions
will be taken up for approval.
More than 20 hours of debate on the
measure this week developed general
endorsement from both Democrats
and Republicans, but the bill faces at
least a dozen amendments which will
be offered next week on vital points.
Sponsors of the measure, which was
framed by the ways and means com-

Cooperated With American'( govern.
ment During Insurrection; Known
As Leading Man In Islands
Democratic development of the gov-
ernment of. the Philippines which'
makes independence practicable, will
be discussed by Sen. Sergio Osmena,
of the Philippine islands, in a lecture
at 4:15 o'clock tomorrow in Natural
Science auditorium.
Senator Osmena has been active in
Philippine politics for many years.
In 1907, he was the first speaker of
the Philippine assembly, and previous
to this time he was the first president
of the Conference of provincial gov-
ernors. At the time of his election as
speaker of the assembly, the position
was the highest within the gift of the
Filipino people, and he held the office
until 1922.
During this 15 year period, Senator
Osmena, with another important char-
acter in the Philippine government,
Senor Manuel E. Cazon, played a more
important part in the political and
material development of the islands
than any other Filipino.
When Senator Osmena was speaker
of the Philippine assembly Senor Ca-
zon was the chairman of the opprop-
riations committee and an influential
person in the house. About 1910 he
came to the United States as a com-
missioner to Congress for the purpose
of securing more independence for
the islands. As a result of this the
Jones bill was passed which gave the
islands control of the legislative de-
partment of the government. In 1917
Cazon was then elected president of
the Senate. At this time, Senator Os-
mena and Senor Cazon became rivals
for the h'ead of the government. In
1922 Senor Cazon left Senator Os-
mena and established a new party.
Senator Osmena then resigned as
speaker of the house and became a
senator, while Senor Cazon still re-
mained president of the Senate and
ranked as the first man with the
Philippine people. However, in the
opinion of many Americans, Senator
Osmena is the first person in the is-
During the crisis of 1923 in which
the Filipino members of the Council
of State resigned and refused to co-
operate with General Wood, Senator
Osmena was not directly impleated,
the move being primarily one of Senor
Cazon's. As a result, in the elections
of 1925, he maintained his strength in!
the portion of the country in which
he was concerned, while the strength:
of Senor Cazon decreased.
At the time of the Philippine in-
surrection Senator Osmena edited one
of the two papers which favored the
Filipino cause. When he saw that
further resistance to the American
government would be useless, how-'
ever, he cooperated in making the new
rule a success. He became governor
of one of the most important prov-
inces in the islands and assisted the
Philippine constabulary and American
army in stamping out banditry and
guerilla warfare.
Senator Osmena came to the United
States as a delegate of his government
to the Interparliamentary union which
'met in Washington recently. He is
coining directly from Washington to
Ann Arbor, arriving here tomorrow

OHIO TEAM, 32- 27



Interfraternlty Group Will Again Dis-
cuss Proposed Plans Of
Deferred Rushing

By Joseph Kruger, Sports Editor
Sporadic flashes of real basketball
ability, culminating in a sensational
rally in the closing four minutes Of
play, enabled Michigan's Varsity five
to emerge victorious in the opening
contest of the season last night at the
Yost field house, the final score read-
ing 32-27.
The invading Buckeye contingent
was leading the Wolverines 20-25 with
but four minutes remaining to play
when Capt. Dick Doyle scored his first
basket of the game, a pretty shot from
beneath the basket. Ed Chambers
followed quickly with a long shot
from the center of the court, and then
Frank Harrigan placed Michiga in the
lead for the first time in the second
half with a clever shot, making the
score 26-25.
Chambers stretched the lead to
three points with another spectacular
long shot, but Blickle renewed Ohio
Wesleyan's hopes with a two pointer.
Harrigan and Doyle then followed
with two short shots that sewed up
the contest.
The play of the Michigan five up
until the last few minutes of the con-
test was perhaps characteristic of
most season's openers. There was a
lack of coordination in bringing the
ball up the court and into scoring
positions, most of the baskets result-
ing from individual play. And inac-
curacy when close to the basket cost
the Wolverines many additional
Defensive Strength Displayed
The team gave indications of, real
defensive strength for the greater
part of the game, the players staying
close to th ir 'opponents. However,
the Michigan defense appeared to
crumble several times, and the visi-
tors broke away for easy baskets.
The Wolverines were woefully wealk
in following up their own shots, con-
tinually failing to drive in to the back-
board to recover the ball, or to fol-
low up with a short shot.
Captain Turney gave the visitors
the lead with a two pointer immedi-
ately after the opening whistle, but
free throws by Harrigan and Cham-
bers, and a one arm shot by Harrigan
gave Michigan an advantage that was
retained until the closing minutes of
the first half.

Ohioans Rally
With Michigan leading 11-4, Ohio
Wesleyan started a rally that ,finally
put them ahead when the first period
ended. Turney,'who was the star of
the invading five, accounted for three
baskets during this rally. The half

The Ohio team quickly increased
their total to 20 points after the sec-
ond half started, before Michigan had
accounted for a single point. Then
three free throws in succession by
Cherry, Harrigan and Doyle, and a
short shot by Chambers brought the
Wolverines to within two points of
the visitors.
Wolverln'es Appear To Lag
F The Wolverines then appeared to
lag, and the Ohio five scored two
baskets and a free throw, while Michi-
gan accounted for two points from
the foul line, making the score 25-20,
with Wesleyan in the lead. With its
chances for victory dwindling rapidly,
I the Michigan quintet then unleashed
the spurt that overwhelmed the visi-
tors completely. Chambers, Doyle,
and Harrigan each accounted for two
baskets in that final rally.
Frank Harrigan was the leading
scorer of the contest with six baskets
and four free throws to his credit,
making a total of 16 points. Cham-
bers ranked next with nine points,
making four baskets and one foul.
Dick Doyle scored two baskets and
two fouls. "Red" Cherry, although
