VOL. XXXVI. No. 77





No Details Are Disclosed; May De.
mand Greater Reduction Than Is
Now Proposed by G. 0. P.
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 5.-Secretary
Mellon expressed his ,approval of the
House tax reduction bill, in general,
to the Senate finance committee to-
day, and it started actual work on
the measure, passing 'over important'
controversial provisions, however, for
future decisions.
Republican members, indicated a
willingness to follow the administra-
tion in support of the House bill, but
action on the vital income tax rate
provision was postponed at the re-
quest of some Democratic members. -3
Senator Simmons, of North Caro-
lina, ranking Democrat on the com-
mittee, later called the Democratic
members into conference, and it was
announced they would present a pro-
gram calling for several changes in
the bill. No details of their plans
were disclosed, but the program is
expected to call for greater tax re-
duction than proposed in the bill as
passed by the House.
The committee did approve the
"earned income" section of the bill,
which increases from $10,000 to $20,-
000 the maximum amount on which
the 25 per cent reduction under the
classification might be applied.
Some consideration also was given
a proposal to incxrease from $5,000
to $10,000 the amount of income auto-
matically regarded as "earned" and
entitled to the reduction.
Despite the impending party fight
on the bill, leaders of both side de-
clared their intention to work for
,early action 'so that the proposed
sweeping reductions in income rates,
may be taken advantage of in the pay-
ments of first installments of these
toxes, March 15. A suggestion that
night meetings of the committee be
held brought objection.
The controversial inheritance tax
rates were the subject of discussions
by Secretary Mellon bef'bre the com-
mittee and Senator Fletcher, Demo-
crat, Florida in a speech before the
Recalling that he had urged retire-
ment of the central government from j
the field of taxation, Secretary Mel-
lon told the committee he had no ser-
ious objection to the modified in-
heritance rates provided by the bill.

Samnuel T. Dana Will Discuss Forest
Research Problems In Relation
To National Program
Samuel T. Dana, director of the,
Northeastern forest experimental sta-
tion at Amherst, Mass., will speak on
"The Place of Forest Research in the
National Forest Program," at 4:15
o'clock tomorrow in Natural Science
auditorium. The experimental stationl
at Amherst is one of ten maintained
by the forestry service in different
parts of the United States. Research
is being carried on at all times at the
station to determine the kinds of tim-
ber which will grow best in the
Northeastern section, the best sites
for reforestation, and the best use to
put the cut-over lands. Mr. Dana has
been connected with the United States
forestry service since 1907, at which
time he received the M. F. degree
from Yale university. Ie received
the A. B. degree from Bowdion college
in 1904. Recently he was re-elected
president of the Society of American
Foresters at their annual cpnvention
in Madison, Wis.I
The lecture, which is the second of
a series on the subject of forestry, is
open to the public.1
As a result of the action taken by
the faculty of the Engineering col-
lege at a meeting held just preceding
the Christmas vacation, upperclass-
men in that school will not be re-
quired to secure excuses from the{
Dean's office for class absences.
Instead of the former procedure, the
student who has been absent will in-
form his instructor of the cause of
the absence and the matter will be
dropped. This action was suggested

by the Baldwin governmnent, the ex-
tension of old age pensions to include
also pensions for windows and or-
phans, came into operation when the
first pension became payable under
the new law. This reform was prom-1
ised by the Labor government of
Ramsey McDonald, but was delayed'
by financial exiengicies. It is part of
the program for national insurance
against unemployment, sickness, old
age, and death which program applies
to all workers of both sexes earning
less than 250 pounds which is $1,250
a year - approximately 15,000,000
workers. It is estimated that it affects
70 preent of the entire population of
the United Kingdom.
Under this scheme, workers are as-
sessed a weeckly contribution of nine
pence for men and four pence, half
penny for women, divided about equal-
ly between employer and employee.
rTo this amount is added a similar
amount already payable under a pre-
viously existing health insurance. Un-
der the new widows and orphans pen-
sion' law, each widow of an insured
man is entitled to a pension of ten
shillings, $2.50, until she attains the
age of 70, when she becomes entitled!
to the ordinary old age pension. For
the eldest child of such a widow a
weekly pension of 5 shillings is paid,
and for every other child, three shill-
ings a week until the children reach
the age of 14. This age limit rises
to 16 if the child is spending the en-
tire time at school. Orphans are paid
seven shillings, six pence or $1.87 a
All these pensions are payable
every Tuesday, and the going of the,
schene into effect today meant an eco-
nomic revolution in thousands of Eng-
lish homes. The Ministry of Health.
estimates that approximately 174,000
widows and 275,000 orphans are im-'
mediately eligible for the new pen-
sions, but a large number of those

House members today emphatically
opposed a "threat" of congressional
influence to sway commandants of the
military and naval academies in se-
lection of a place for holding the
annual Army-Navy football game in
A move by Representative Britten,
Republican, Ill., forlegislative action
to have the contest held in Chicago
were attacked as indicating an at-
tempt to put the academies in politics.
The prospect of distant tours to satis-
fy regional demands regardless of
custom and academic time limitations
was held out as the likely result of
such action.+
It was asserted that an expenditure
of $300,000 would be necessary to
transport 2,100 midshipmen, 1,300
cadets and the two teams from Chi-
cago, and that training ,at each insti-
tution would be interrupted for sev-
eral days.-
Special Carrying 100 Arrives Here
Early Tuesday Morning After
Toledo Performance
"Tambourine", the 20th annual
Mimes production, was presented for
the last time in Toledo, Monday night,
before a capacity audience at the Ri-
voli theater, bringing to a close the
opera's tour of the Middle West and
East where 15 performances were
given during the Christmas holidays.
The "Michigan Opera Special", carry-
ing more than 100 students who com-
posed the "Tambouirine" company, ar-
rived in Ann Arbor at 2:30 o'clock
yesterday morning, after a continuous
run from city to city which started
at 1 o'clock on Friday, Dec. 18.
During the 1925 trip 26,251 persons
saw the opera, making a grand total
of 31,470 including the 5,219 paid ad-
missions during the one week run in
ithis city. Saginaw afforded the larg-
est house of any city on the itinerary
with a record-breaking audience of
2,582 while Buffalo was second with
I exactly 100 less paid admissions. To-
ledo was third with 2,092, while the
average attendance was 1,750. At-
tendance marks in the remaining
cities follow: Chicago 1, 964; Lansing
1,713; Grand Rapids 1,564; Flint 1,309;
Detroit (three performances) 4,394;
New York 1,916; Philadelphia 1,539;
Washington 1,629; Cleveland 1,590;
Cincinnati 1,477.
The trip this year was a decided
success financially, though the gross
income was approximately $3,000 less
than "Cotton Stockings" provided two
years ago with a total of 17 presenta-.
tions, two more than "Tambourine".
The gross income for the Ann Arbor
run this year was $6,000 less than two
years ago, although considerably more
than for "Tickled To Death" last year.
Buffalo netted the greatest financial
gain this year with an income of $2,700
more than for "Cotton Stickings".
Chicago did $2,400 better than two
years ago, Toledo $2,000 better, while
Washington and Cincinnati both did
more, and Lansing had a packed
house. All of the other cities netted
less income than two years ago, De-
troit being the lowest with $3,300 less.
The net profit realized by the opera
this year has not been computed, but
it is expected to compare favorably
with that made by "Cotton Stockings."
As in past years, the opera com-
pany was most cordially received in

t every city on the itinerary, Michigan
alumni affording entertainment every-
where. Members of the company per-
sonally met President Coolidge at the
White House while in Washington,
and visited the capitol and other
prominent buildings there. Sightsee-
ing trips were arranged in New York,
Philadelphia and Buffalo to Niagara
Falls, and a reception and dance was
given after every performance. While
in Detroit, the company stopped at the
Statler hotel, taking meals at the
principal clubs and hostelries in each

the organization's three day campaign
Ifor $5,500 at a mass meeting last night
in Lane hall. J. Fred Iawton, '11, of
Detroit, author of the "Varsity," gave
the assembled students a sales talk
particularly adapted to the present
campaign, ,and appealed to them to
give their best work for the success
of the drive.
Harry Messer, '26, chairman of the
drive, announced the captains and
their teams, and gave them final in-
structions for carrying out the cam-
paign. For general solicitation each
man was given alist of twenty stu-
dents to interview. In order to can-

extra committee headed by John Hay,
'27, has been organized to furnish
speakers to present the needs of the

from the various houses for these
speakers who will address the fra-
ternity men in a body and take the
subscriptions which they wish to
Rensis Likert, '26, who also address-
ed the assembled workers, gave the
following statement on the drive after
the meeting: "The Student Christian
association is an organization which
endeavors to foster, under student
initiative and leadership, every effort
intended to assist students to recog-
nize the true place of religion in life,
and to help them face the real issues
of the modern world. It is my wish
that all students who are in sympathy
with this and the other obpectives of
the S. C. A. will co-operate with us in
the present financial drive."
The captains of the various teams
will meet at noon today for a luncehon
in the Lane hall tavern. At this time
reports on the campaign will he made
Iand discussed. During the later part
of the week a steak dinner will be
given to the winning team and to the
ten highest campaign workers. The
solicitor who obtains the largest
amount in the drive will receive the
silver loving cup which is being do-
mated by O. D. Morrill.
Stinnes Claims
Custom Barriers
Must Be Removed
"European nations cannot approach
America in wealth and standards of
living until customs barriers in Europe
are torn down," said Edmund Stinnes,
son of the late Hugo Stinnes, German
industrialist, now on a visit in this
country. The German automobile, for
instance, costs $1,500, and the work-
man in the factory gets one mark
where your workers get one dollar.
How then is the German workman ex-
pected to enjoy the privileges of your
"A great bu.jinesd man'there'told me
that we must increase production to
prosper. We can do that, but where
is the market? Tarifffwals surround
us. Here you have cash enough on
hand and credit available for the in-
stallment system of selling. We do
not have that system in Germany.
The big turnover here is what makes
[for cheap articles."
Mr. Stinnes has made a special
study of the automobile, coal, and
steel industries here as his family has
its fortune involved in them in his
own country.

Noted Color Organist Appears Jan. 14
In 1ill AuditorIum Under Auspices
Of Women's Association
Following his appearances as spec-
ial artist at the International Expo-
sition of Art in Paris this summer and
a subsequent tour through Scanda-
'navia and continental Europe, Thom-
as Wilfred, inventor of the Clavilux,
has been re-engaged for a recital on

appearance will again be under the
auspices of the Ann Arbor branch' of
the American Association of Univer-
! sity Women.
Mr. Wilfred filled an engagement
here a year ago and played before a
capacity house. It is considered that'
his 'second recital, with an entirely
new program, will mark even further
advances in his invention that is re-
garded by scientists as a new, or
eighth, art medium.
The Color Organ plays light as a
pipe organ produces sound. It is, in
a sense, "silent music", and his pres-
ent program will include several
settings for' dramas, "The Enchanted
Forest", a visualization of the Rim-
sky-Korsakoff "Scheherasade", as well
as various Fantasias of a more ab-
stract nature.I

Junius E. Beals Says Students Should
Not Strive Entirely To Increase
Earning Capacity
Addresses by alumni and members
of the faculty, and musical entertain-
ment by members of the School of
Music comprised the regular Michi-
gan Night program broadcasted last
night from the University radio sta-
tion in University hall. The speakers
who addressed the radio audience
were Regent Junius E. Beal, Dr. Ran-
dolph Adams, custodian of the Wil-
liam L. Clements library, Prof. Jo-
seph R. Hayden of the political sci-
ence department, and Coach Elton E.
Regent Beal, speaking on the sub-
ject of the University and the State,
discussed the University in the light
of its service to its mother state.
Looking toward future development in
the University, he declared, "It seems
likely that we must take a greater in-
terest in the social and group lives
of the students, reaching and direct-
ing the individual and 'helping him to
adjust his college work and his fu-
ture plans to his abilities and apti-
University Should Teach How To Live
The University, he pointed out, does
not want students to come just to in-
crease their earning capacity. "We
are not so anxious," Regent Beal
said, "to teach them how to make a
living as how to live. We must open
to them richer and fuller lives of use-
fulness and helpfulness, to others and
to themselves. If we do not, we mis-
erably fail."
"At the present time," stated Pro-
fessor Hayden in a discussion of the
situation in the Philippines, "The Fili-
pino people are seeking to solve two
very difficult problems. The first is
r ihat of democratic self-government,
the second is that of the economic
development of their country." The
potential richness and the natural re-
sources of the archipelago are great
but they have not been developed.
"Further social and political devel-
opment in the 'Philippines wait upon
economic development. Economic de-
velopment, in turn, waits upon for-
eign capital, and foreign capital,
American or otherwise, will not enter
the Islands until their political future
E is far more certain than it now is.
Filpinos Cooperate
"The 'great majority of Filipinos,"
he continues, "have cooperated with
Governor-General Wood. The result
has been a period of rapid develop-
ment, political, economic and social,
in the Islands. Both of the leading
1 American political parties are thor-
oughly committeed to ultimate inde-
pendence for the Philippines."
Dr. Adams told of the General Na-
thaniel Greene papers which were
presented recently to the University
by Mr. Clements. "Only a brief exam-
ination of the Greene papers has yet
been possible," Dr. Adams explained,
"but it may be said that they will
compel the historian to rewrite the
military history of the Revolution.
Greene Organizer Of Victory
They certainly prove that the vic-
'tory was won in the face of the failure
F of the rank and file of the American
army to stand its ground, that it was
won in spite of the appalling inertia
and lethargy of the people as a whole,
that it was won on account of the
courage and constancy of the leaders
like Washington and Greene. These
r papers will place Greene in Iis prop-
er position as the organizer of victory
in the American Revolution."
"The Educational Function of Com-
fpetitive Sport," was the topic on
which Coach Wieman spoke. "Those
+ of us who have studied the matter,
he declared, "are of the conviction
that training such as is received i.

the game of football contributes not
alone to the physical well-being of
the bay, but serves as well in develop-'
ling a strength of character, and an
understanding of one's fellows that is
a very real part of education."
The musical program consisted of
two violin duets by Mr. and Mrs. Sam-
uel P. Lockwood of the School of
'Music, three cornet solos by M. T.
Byrn, grad, and three tenor solos by'
R. T. Susamago, S of M, who was ac-
companied by Donna Esselstyn, '27.

National Home Is Being Provided
For Newspapermen And Journalists

For the first time in history, a na- 1

through the donation of a gift by
former congressman Charles I7.
Haines and Mrs. Haines, of Florida,
which is valued at more than one
million dollars.
The International Press foundation

lantic ocean.
Ultimately there will be a magni-
ficent auditorium to seat ten thousand

three smaller convention halls under
[the same roof. Besides a thoroughly
e -tripped modern hospital, a sani-
tarium is planned. Theaters and
churches, a great radio station, a
Sunion railway station, are among
other utilities which will be a part
of this wonderful development. Also,
certain buildings and provisions are
planned for educational purposes. A
press library and museum will be pro-
vided as a repository for original
manuscripts, valuable relics, and oh-
jects of historical value. In this
building there will be a department of
fine arts with special rooms dedicated
to the various forms of graphic arts.
In athletics and sports provision has
