PROVIDES $381,009,000 CUT
IN 1926; $342,000,000
house Restores Inheritance Tax And
Other Items To Bill Which
Senate Repealed
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 19.-Tax re-
duction, amounting to $381,000,000
this year and $343,000,000 thereafter,
was agreed upon today by Senate and
House conferees on the revenue bill.
This compromise, which must be
ratified by both branches of Congress
before the bill becomes law, repre-
sents an increase of about $50,000,00
over the total written into the bill
by the House, but is $75,000,000 less
than voted by the Senate. It was de-
scribed as acceptable to the adminis-
tration as within the limits the treas-
ury can afford.
Force Restoration
Iouse conferees forced the restora-
tion to the bill, with some modifica-
tions, of taxes on inheritances, auto-
mobile passenger cars, and admis-
sions and. dues, which the Senate had
voted to repeal. Senate conferees, on
the other hand, obtained greater re-
ductions in some of the surtax rates
than were voted by the House.
The compromise measure will be
placed before the House for ratifica-
tion Monday or Tuesday. If approved,
it will be taken to the Senate the fol- I
lowing day, and upon its approval
there, it will be sent to- the' White
House for the signature of President
Coolidge, which is expected to make it
-- law in ample time for it to become
effective before first income tax in-
stallments are due March 15.
Dissatisfacton Apparent
While considerable dissatisfaction
was apparent on both sides as a re-
sult of the inheritance tax compro-
mise, which often involves allowances
of a retroactive cut in this tax, lead-
ers expected immediate ratification
of the bill by the two chambers.
The conference agreement on the
points in dispute follows:
Restoration of the modified inheri-
tance tax rates voted by the House,
including the provsion allowing 80
per cent credit on account of state in-
heritance tax payments.
Retroactive cut in the inheritance
tax, whereby the increased rates vot-
ed in 1924 will be eliminated in favor
of the lower rates in the 1921 act.
Allowance of the increased reduc-
tions.in the surtax rates, applying on
incomes between $26,000 and $100,000,
as voted by the Senate. This involves
a saving of $23,000,000 anuually to
taxpayers in this class.,
Repeal of the capital stock tax as
voted by the Senate.
Increase of the corporation tax,
now 121-4 per cent, to 13 per cent
for this year and 13 1-2 per cent
Restoration of the 10 per cent tax
on admissions and dues, but with an
increase in the exemptions to apply
on tickets costing 75 cents and less,!
rather than 50 cents and less, as vot-!
ed by the House.
Restoration of the automobile pas-
senger car tax, with the rates re- I
duced from 5 to 3 per cent.
Retroactive reduction in the gift
tax to make the lower rates in effect
on inheritances in the 1921 law effec-
tive . This tax, as far as the future
is concerned, is repealed by the bill.
Increase from $50,000 to $100,000,,
the exemption from the inheritance

Waldo Frank, Novelist, Discusses
Modern Trend In Literature;
Defines Word "Novel"
With "The Revolution in Art and
Literature" as his subject, Waldo
Frank, American critic and novelist,
and author of "Our America," "Holi-
day," and "Salvos," as well as various
critical essays on literature and the
(drama, presented a lecture yesterday
afternoon in University Hall on the
revolutionary trend and the decad-
ence of modern art. Mr. Frank divid-
ed his lecture into two phases, using,
firstsexamples from the pasteto em-
phasize his points, and later, giving,
a more definite and complete discus- I
sion on modern literature itself to-I
gether with its motives and aims.
"In the past," asserted Mr. Frank,
"all art was the culmination of all
that had gone before. It was, in short,
culminative endeavor." This particu-
lar culminative endeavor is what Mr.
Frank called scriptural art, which is
the result of all aesthetic experience
of the past. "A good novel," Mr.!
Frank continued, "is a good story well
told, and in this sense we may take
Cervante's 'Don Quixote' as the typical
example of this definition."
"Modern literature, that is the lit-
erature which we are producing to-
day, and which will be read tomor-
row," he said in conclusion, "is.in the
last analysis completely decadent. In
fact all America today and the world
we are living in is decadent, for Amer-
ica is merely the pieces of Europe,
and all that is ancient in civilization
is combined in America and exempli-
fled in our literature."
Mr. Frank was the guest of Mr.
Oakley Johnson during his stay in
Ann Arbor, and was entertained last
night at a reception of the various
members of the faculty of the rhet-
oric and English departments.

EXPECT 5,000
Hospital Clinic Sessions To Be Held
For Week As Part Of Full
Two noted European physicians will
be guests in Ann Arbor next Thurs-
day, when the American Congress on
Internal Medicine, meeting through-
out the week in Detroit for its twelfth
annual clinical session, will conic
here for a one day program of demon-
strations and clinics. Dr. Knud
Faber, professor in the University of
Copenhagen, and Dr. Jacques Fores-
tier of Aix les Bains, France, whose
research work with iodized oil has
attracted considerable attention, will
attend the Congress as specially in-
vited foreign guests, and will be pres-
ent at the Ann Arbor session. Both
these doctors are scheduled to ad-
dress Detroit meetings of the conven-
Doctor Faber was educated at the
University of Copenhagen, and enter-
ed his career as an interne in the
State hospital there. In 1893, he was
made reserve physician, and in 1896,
chief physician and professor of clini-
cal medicine at the Fredericks hos-
pital, Here his research work in
the field of internal medicine estab-
lished him as the head of the medical
profession in Denmark, and in 1910
lie returned to the State hospital as
director. His discoveries revolution-
ized the treatment of such diseases
as anemia, digestive troubles, and gas-
tritis. For the past several years he
has also been giving time to the Uni-
versity of Copenhagen, where his lec-
tures on internal medicine have re-
ceived much favorable comment. He
is said to devote the greater part of
his talks to the generalities, rather
than the details, of his subjects. A
copy of several of these lectures has
been published under the title, "A
Text Book of Internal Medicine", and
a later work, "Nosology", has been
translated into English.
Doctor Forestier first attracted at-
tention when he was assistant to Pro-
fessor Sicard, an eminent, specialist
on the nervous system at the Univer-
sity of Paris. Doctors Sicardl and For-
estier together discovered the use of
iodized oil injections for the localiza-
tion of 'tumors of the spinal column.
Since that time Doctor Forestier has
successfully employed this oil for a
number of other things, among them
the demonstration of the enlarge-
ments on the bronchial tubes and
lung cavities. The oil used for these
injections is composed of iodine and
poppy seed oil, and as it is absolutely
non-irritating, it can be freely used
for experimentation and diagnosis.-
More than 5000 physicians from all
parts of the country are expected to
be present at both the Detroit and
Ann Arbor sessions of the Congress.
There will be a full program of clin-
ics and meetings in the Detroit hos-
pitals throughout the week and
Thursday in the University hospital, as
well as talks by President Claren '
Cook Little, members of the medical
faculty, and by prominent doctors
from other localities.

The President returned to his desk
for the first time in forty-eight hours.
He had spent most of the day in bed,
having called off a morning meeting
with his cabinet, and cancelled other
engagements for the day.
In husky voice, he conversed for
about 15 minutes with reporters on
current questions, interrupting his
replies to questions to order Rob Roy,

companied him from the executive
mansion, into a leather chair.
The President walked from his liv-

Team To Be Selected By March
Will Sail From Montreal
On May 1


Award of the Sen. James 1
Couzens testimonial to members
of the two teams which repre-
sEnted the University in Central
league debates during the past
semester, was made by Prof.
Thomas C. Trueblood, head of
the public speaking department,
before his class in debating yes-
terday morning.
SThe Couzens testimonial of
$50 is presented annually to each
man representing the University
in varsity debates. Yesterday it
was awarded to John H. Elliott,
'26, E. R. Comberg, '27, and John
Yeasting, '27, who composed the
I affirmative team; and Harry
Gervais, '27, Thomas V. Koykka,
I '27, and Philip N. Krasne, '27,
I members of the negative team.


Members of the team which will
represent the University in a series of
debates to be held in England in May,
will probably be selected by March
15, it was indicated yesterday, follow-
ing the preliminary meeting of can-
didates for the team.
The first of the formal tryouts will
be held late next week. Other tryouts
will be held in the following weeks,
and after the squad has been reduced
to eight or ten, the final selection
of men to compose the team will
probably be made by a jury of faculty
Delta Sigma Rho men. Juniors and
seniors of all colleges, except the
Graduate school are eligible to try
out for the team.
Prof. R. I1. T. Hollister, who will
accompany the team on the English
tour, is in charge of try outs, and
will assume charge of the coaching,
assisted by others in the public
speaking department, after the teamj
is named.
Sailing from Montreal on May 1
aboard the steamship Regina, the!
team will spend three weeks in Eng-
land. Though the final schedule of
debates has not been arranged, it is
probable that the men will meet
Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham,
Glasgow, Edinburgh, Oxford and Cam-
bridge universities, and possibly two

President Thinks Italy, As Aly,
Should Receive Leniency, As Aus-
tria Got 20 Year Delay
WASHINGTON, Feb. 19.-President
{ Coolidge feels that failure of the sen-
ate to ratify the Italian debt settle-
ment would serve to relieve Italy of
any obligation to negotiate an agree-
ment. The president is confident that
favorable senate action on the Italian
agreement will be obtained, although
he appears to be somewhat disturbed
over the opposition which has devel-
He is convinced that prompt dis-
posal of the question would be to the
best interests, not only of the United
J States and Italy, but of the entire
world. Ratification of the agreement,
which has been approved by the house
and is pending in the senate, would,
'in the president's opinion, benefit the
foreign trade of the United States,
enable the Italian government to map
out its fiscal program, and stabilize
jtrade and currency generally.
If the Republican party is willing
to show a liberal attitude toward Italy,
accepting the judgment of the Amer-
ican debt commission as to that na-
tion's capacity to pay, the President
holds that the Democratic opponents
of the funding agreement should be
willing to give it approval.
It was pointed out at the White
House today that, until the Mussolini
government became established in
Italy, no disposition had been shown
to fund the American debt. The
question, as laid before the American
commission by the Italian representa-
tives was considered, as the President
sees it, by a bi-partisan commission
of experts who had original sources
of information on Italy's capacity to
It was also recalled that a 20-year
moratorium was extended to Austria,
although that nation was not allied
with the United States in the world
war, and it is the president's convic-
tion that Congress should be willing
to extend leniency toward Italy,
which was a comrade-in-arms.
Even if the Senate should reject
the agreement, Mr. Coolidge is con-
fident that a large vote will be mus-
tered for ratification, indicating to
Italy, in view of approval given by
the House, by the debt commission,
and by the President, that sentiment
in the United States is favorable to
the pact.

NEW YORK, Feb. 19.-Wet, heavy
snow tonight succeeded a smoky fog
that hovered over the city most of the
day. With a gale and a sharp drop
in temperature predicted, storm warn-
ings were posted along the coast.
The steamer Providence of the Fall
River Line from Fall River, Mass., and
the steamer Richard Peck of the NewwI

Wolverln'e Defense Unable To Stop
Olson And Kuhlman; Each
Scored Twice
Minnesota entered into the lead in
the race for the Big Ten Conference
hockey championship, by overwhelm-
ing the Michigan hockey team, last
season's Conference titleholder, in a
fast game in the Coliseum last night,
the Gophers winning by a score of 5
to 0.
The Northmen earned the right to
first place by the victory over the
Wolverines and two tie games against
the University of Wisconsin sextet,
Michigan held first place before last

tie game with the Cardinal hockey
team to her credit. The titleholder
will be definitely decided next week
when the Wolverines journey north

Varsity No Match For Minnesota
The Gophers outclassed the Michi-
gan team in every department of the
game, showing superior speed and un-
canny ability in checking. The Mich-
igan team made desperate attempts,
especially in the final period to get
the puck into the Gopher territory,
but the powerful defense of Iverson's
team repelled each Wolverine effort
to score.
With Captain Olson and Kuhmani
alternating at bringing the puck down
the ice with whirlwind speed, th
Gophers presented an attack which
baffled the defense of Coach Barss'
squad. Minnesota made five out of
the six goals by bringing the puck
down close to the Maize and Blue
goal on brilliant passing formations
which the Michigan wings were un-
able to break tip.
Minnesota took the offense at the
start of the game, and scored the first
goal within the first two minutes of
play, when Thompson, left defense,
pushed the puck past goalie Weitzel
on Wilckens rebound. With Captaiu.
Olson leading the attack, the Goph-
ers continued their fast pace and fol-
lowed with another tally, when Gus-
tafson scored on a short pass from
Coach Barss sent in McDuff and
Hooper at the wings in an effort to
break up the passing attack of the
visitors, but the Gophers' speed prov-
ed too much, and before the period
ended they had netted another score,
the period ending 3 to 0 in favor of
the Northmen.
Squad Shows Improvement
In the second period Michigan
showed improvement in checking, and
held the Minnesota sextet for the first
five minutes on comparatively even
terms. Roach and Gabler frequently
moved up from the defense and
brought the puck down the ice to the
Gopher net, but on each occasion
lacked a teammate to aid in passing
the rubber past the goalie. Captain
Olson made the lone score in the sec-
ond frame, when he brought the puck
