Capital Stock Levy Of $1 For Every
$1,000 Of Stock In Excess Of
$5,000 Repealed




Feminine witticisms, accompanied by
illustrations drawn by feminine ar-
tists from all parts of the country,
as well as the Michigan campus, are
contained in the annual Girls' number
of Gargoyle, campus humor magazine,
Which will be placed on sale on the
campus and at the bookstores this
morning. The prizes, two silver lov-
ing cups, one for the best drawing
and the other for the best editorial
matter submitted, will be awarded at
a meeting of the Gargoyle staff today
and the winners announced by The
Daily tomorrow.
The cover design, "Virgin Wool",
carried out in red and black, is the
work of Mary Louise Miller, '26. Three
full page drawings are included in
the issue; the first, "Sonnet, to H" is
the work of a student at an eastern

girls' school, and the latter two are
local products, one, "The College Girl",
by Dorothy McGonigal, '28, and the
other a collection of female faces and
figures, with which the Gargoyle of-
fice was flooded when the Girls' num-
ber contest opened.
According to Gargoyle staff, contri-
butions were received from Vassar,
Mt. Holyoke and other of the eastern
schools for girls, and from as far west
as the University of Missouri, in ad-
dition to scores of contributions from
the feminine students on the campus.
Editorially, Gargoyle objects to the
use of the word "co-ed", believing that
women, as well as men, have made a
place for themselves in a state uni-
versity, and advocates the use of the
generic word "student", in referring
to both sexes.

tendered in a letter after the Supreme
court had refused to review his con-
viction for violation of the prohibi-

WASHINGTON, Jan. 11.-The drive
if farm relief legislation by the pres-
nt session of Congress moved today
oward a full stride, with hearings,f
n agricultural bills, getting under
ray in the House, and farmer's rep-
esentative gathering for the National
,ooperative Marketing conference and
or discussions with administration I
The House agriculture committee
ook up for first consideration among
he numerous pending measures, a billI
y its chairman, Representative Hau-
en, Republican, Iowa, to establish a
evision of cooperative marketing in
he 'Department of Agriculture.
Secretary Jardine, endorsing the
ill, told the committee that the co- 1
perative idea was fundamentally
ound, but the farmers organizations
hould "stop fighting among them-
elves" if they expected to reap the
>enefits. Something must be done
mmediately, he declared, to stop "ag-I
icultural mortality".

WASHINGTON, Jan. 11.-Debate on
whether Peter Nye is to be seated as
a senator from North Dakotia by ap-
pointment of the governor got out
of the hands of Senate leaders today
and developed into a free-for-all argu-
Both the Republican and Democra-
tic leaders sought to mark an end to
the discussion and have a vote by
3:30 o'clock tomorrow. But their
proposal for an unanimous consent
agreement failed. The question for
unanimous consent was put twice.
The first time, Senator Blease, Demo-
crat, South Carolina, objected on the
ground that "jag rule" was being
proposed, and later Senator Dill, Dem-
ocrat, Washington, blocked agreement
contending senators should have a
free reign in the discussions.
Each proposal would have limited
senators to one speech of not longer
than 30 minutes. Upon assurance that
no senator desired to speak longer than
a half hour, Senator Blease withdrew
his objection, but Senator Dill insisted
that as far as he was concerned, he
wanted no limitations.
Debate then was resumed, with Sen-
ator Frazier, Republican, North Da-
kota, who has led the fight for the
seating of Nye taking up the discus-
sion. He expressed the view that if
Mr. Nye were a "regular Republican
instead of a progressive," there would
be little question as to his right to a

Campaign Will Close Thursday Night;a
Silver Trophy Will Be Given a
high-Point Manr
Captains of two teams to lead thet
"Clean-up" squiads in the last three1
days of the Student Christian associa-t
tion drive, were appointed at a break-1
fast last Sunday morning in Lanet
Hall Tavern by Harry G. Messer, '26,
chairman of the campaign . The two
rien chosen were Ezra Young, '26 and1
Albert Boehringer, '26, who will have}
under them ten teams of five men each1
each. These teams will endeavor to
canvass every student who has not I
already been solicited by a member
of the committee.
The drive closes at midnight on
next Thursday night, and the man
who has the high total of subscrip-
tions will be awarded the silver tro-
phy which was donated by 0. D. Mor-
,il. At present, the man who is lead-
ing in the race has obtained subscrip-
tions amounting to more thian $100,
and there are several others who are
near that mark.
More than half the fund has already
been subscribed and it, is hoped that
the total will pass the $5,500 mark
before the end of the drive on Thurs-
day night. Since all subscriptions are
in dash or check this year, solicitors
are finding a little difficulty in obtain-
ing the subscriptions at the time of
making the call.
Many students who have not been
canvassed as yet have brought their
subscriptions to Lane Hall. Any stu-
dent who can bring his subscription
to Lane Hall will assist the commit-
tee greatly by doing so before Thurs-
day night.

Crystalizing claims of student mem-
bers of the Oratorical board that they a
are not at present enjoying all thet
rights and privileges guaranteed to F
them by the constitution and by-lays
)f the organization, William C. Dixon,
2814, at a meeting held yesterday aft-
ernoon in Angell hall, appointed a
committe of four students and one
faculty member to investigate condi-
tions and affect a reorganization of
the Oratorical association if neces-
Robert S. Miller, '27, was named
chairman of the committee and Prof.
R. D. T. Hollister, of the public speak-
ng department, was the faculty mem-
ber of the Board named. The other
three appointments follow: James J.
Dunn, '28L, Albert E. Sawyer, '27L,
and Florence Pollock, '28L.
The functions of the investigating
committee as outlined by Dixon were
presented at the meeting in written
form. They are:
1. Consider other means of organ-
2. Consider proposal of equal stu-
dent representation on lecture com-
mittee of the organization.
.3 Consider advisability pf broad-
ening the scope of the association's
work to include dramatic activities.
4. To ascertain the express powers
of the student officers of the body.
Dixon explained that the purpose of
his action was to effect more.student
control of affairs of the Oratorical
association, to promote more efficiency
in handling affairs, and to define de-
finitely the various powers of the fac-
ulty and student members of the
Board. On several occasions lately
disagreement has arisen in the body
as to the control of different functions,
and no definite conclusions could be
At a meeting held just previous to
the Christmas vacation period, Dixon
claimed the right as president of the
organization to introduce speakers on
the lecture course. He was supported
in his claims by student members of
the board and a motion authorizing
him to introduce speakers was intro-
At the same time a -motion to ap-
point student members to the lecture
committee was introduced. It pro-
vided that the students should have
the same number and same votes in the
committee as the faculty. In the past
the selection of numbers for the lec-
ture course has been entirely in the
hands of a faculty committee. The
motion will be held until the investi-
gation committee makes its report
back to the Board.
Albert E. Sawyer, '27L, student bus-
iness manager, made a proposal at
the meeting yesterday that the adver-
tising system of the body be changed.
He advocated more use of the mails
as an advertising medium, and told
of new filing systems that have been
put into use this year to promote
more efficiency. In advancing his
proposals he said, "Let us .make the
organization an institution rather than
a theatrical competing body".
