Says Executive Sought To Cripple And
Distort Bodies Created For
Controlling Trusts
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 7.-President
Coolidge was attacked in the House
today by Representative Connally,
Democrat, Texas, who contended he
had encouraged the development of
The exeuctive, he charged, had
sought to "cripple" the tariff commit-
tee and to destort the Federal trade
commission, a body created by Con-
gress to control trusts.
"I do not challenge the sincerity of
the President", he asserted. "It does
seem, however, that the President has
been so environed during his life that
he sincerely believes that the way to
create happiness and prosperity is to
give the wealth of the country to a
few great interests and out of their
charity let some trickle downward to
the bottom and, as it goes, touch and
bless all it passes. He believes that."
Referring to the President's speech
before the New York State Chamber of
commerce in New York city last No-
vember, Mr. Connally said that Mr.
Coolidge had disclosed the opinion that
big business may have fault in the
future, but nothing is wrong with it
now. .!
Describing this as a "marvelous sit-
uation the representative said he
"wondered" if the President had in
mind a number of big "trusts" tha'
exist at present. He then enumerate
a number of large bu mess enter
prises, including the Al minum com-
pany of American, the Standard Oil
company of New York, the Pacific Oil
company of California, the General
Electric company, and the Continental
Baking Co.

NEW YORK, Jan. 7.-The New York
Federal Reserve bank, after retaining
three and one-half per cent rediscount
rate for almost a year in the face of
recent advances elsewhere, today fol-
lowed the lead of other reserve insti-
tutions in establishing a four per cent
rate. The new change will go into
effect tomorrow.
While the action of the bank came
at a time when Wall street was flood-
ed with returning funds from the
year's end disturbance of dividends
and interest, it nevertheless had been
forshadowed by a steady increase in
borrowing at this center with a grad-
ual tightening of credit conditions
throughout the country. The change
brings the New York rate into closer 1
alignment with open market rates for
call 'and time funds, which recently
have ranged between four and six per

sociation of railway executives, who
conferred with the President yester-
day, joined with Donald R. Richberg,

in making public a statement declar-
ing that railroad employers and em-1
ployees had reached an agreement on
legislation to .create a board of miti-
gation for railroad labor disputes with
provision for arbitration when media-
tion is itnsuccessful, and also to au-
thorize the President to institute in-
vestigation by a special board, in case
of threatened disturbance. The state-
Ment made no reference to abolition
of the railroad labor board, although
this was understood to be implied in
the proposal.

Greater Aid To Them
Up to a late hour last night,
returns showed that $1,203.02 had
been subscribed through members
of the soliciting teams for the
first two days of the campaign.
According to the chairman of the
campaign, this was quite an en-
couraging report since a large
number of cards had not as yet
been turned in. All contributions,
not personally solicited, should
be sent to Lane hall.

The Student Christian association
does not represent an effeminate type
of organization, said President Little,
but is typical of the masculine, mus-
cular form of Christianity. It is the
best campus activity in the country
because ,no one can make a perfect
score in it.
In introducing his remarks, he said
he was very much interested in stu-
dent christian organizations, partly
because they were so much misunder-
stood at many universities. To dispel
illusions concerning the character of
the association, the President advised
the campaign workers to advance the
merits of the organization and to
buildup its prestige while they were
soliciting forit.
In regard to student aid to the S.
C. A., Professor Reed stated that "t
is entirely possible for the Student
j Christian association to be financed
without student aid. However, it has
I been discovered that.the full benefits
of any institution cannot come to a
person unless he aids the movement
Speaking of the value of the organi-
zation, he said that it is necessary to
our well-being to have a moral stand-
ard to which we can repair, which will
counteract the influences of other
standards. This is the primary rea-
