Nont-Partisani Association Arr.augcs'
Discussion Between Two
Noted Speakers
Clarence Darrow, famous Chicago
attorney, and Dr. Manley O. Hudson,
professor of international law ,at Har-
vard university, will come to Ann Ar-;
bor Monday night, March 22, for a de-I
bate in Hill auditoriumbon the ques-
tion of American membership in the
League of Nations, it was announcedk
last night.
The debate is being sponsored by
the local branch of the League of
Nations Non-Partisan association,
which, during its three years on the
campus, has presented a number of
such events including the Hobbs-
Slosson debate ;and addresses by
George W. Wickersham, Dr. Irving
Fisher and Raymond B. Fosdick. TheI
object of these meetings, it is said,
bas been the stimulation of increased
public interest in international affairs
with especial reference to the desir-
ability of American membership in
the World court and the league.
Both Mr. Darrow and Professor
Hudson are known nationally as for-
inidable debaters and distinguish'ed
supporters of their respective posi-
tions. Professor Hudson wil-take the i
affirmative of the resolution, "Resolv-
ed, That the United States should be-
come a member of the League of
Nations," and Mr. Darrow will sus-
tain the negative. Each speaker willr
be allowed one hour, the division of
time to be announced later.
Professor Hudson, who spoke inj
Natural Science auditorium last April, I
holds the Bemis Professorship at Har-
vard and enjoys an international repu-
tation in his field. He is now a mem-
ber of the legal staff of the Secretariat
bf the League of Nations, and has
served in the State department, the
American embassy at Paris, and the
American Peace commission at Ver-
sailles in 1919.
Mr. Darrow, who achieved fame atj
the bar notably as a criminal lawyer
and advocate for labor organizations,
has recently devoted much time to
public speaking in opposition to the
entry of the United States into the
World court and the League of Nations.
He debated the World Court issue with
Senator Lenroot of Wisconsin in New
York last December, and his brilliant
speech on that occasion aroused na-
tion-wide comment.
Ticket sale and publicity for the de-
bate will be managed by University
women of Ann Arbor, and all profitsI
will go to the League building fund.-

Sigma Delta Chi Announces Professor
Arthur L. Cross WI Act As
President Clarence Cook Little will
give the principal address at the
fourth annual Gridiron Knights' ban-
quet, which will be held Tuesday
night, April 6, in the assembly hall
of the Union under the supervision
of Sigma Delta Chi, national profes-
sional journalistic fraternity, it was
made known last night. It was fur-I
ther announced that Prof. Arthur
Lyons Cross of the history depart-~
ment has been scheduled to act in
the capacity of toastmaster.
President Little will deliver the
main speech of the evening before the
opening of the discussion session and
immediately following the dinner. His
subject, although' not announced as
yet, will be pertinent to the occasion
of the banquet.
In the selection of Professor Cross
to direct the flow of discussion along
the proper channels following the
dinner, the general committee be-
lieves that it has engaged the most
suitable member of the faculty for
the task. Professor Cross has had un-
limited experience as toastmaster at
many functions and is well known for
his wit and repartee. A precedent
will be established this year with the
acquisition of a faculty member for
the office of toastmaster, which, in
the past, has been held by a student.
One of the chief duties of the toast-
master this year will be that of sup-
ervising the discussion session which
will be carried on by prominent mem-
bers of the faculty, state newspaper-
men, and others about campus, city,
and state problems of current interest.
Another feature of the banquet will
be the innovation of a radio station
with a program to be broadcasted
during the mel. A varied program
of music, and hort speeches and re-
marks regarding many of those in at-
tendance is now being arranged,
which will be under the direction of
an experienced announcer.

Of Territory And Men
(By Associated Press)
GENEVA, Feb. 26.--Following close- I
ly upon the action of Greece in ap-
pealing to the League of Nations to
settle a boundary dispute betweenI
Greece and Turkey, a conflict in the
Baltic suddenly loomed on the Leaghe
horizon today, when Lithuania filed a
vigorous protest to Poland, alleging
that the recent Polish action consti-
tuted an "invasion of Lithuanian ter-
ritory by Polish troops."
Lithuania urgently lemands inter-
vention by the League to avoid blood-
shed. Liberation of Lithuanian soil
and the release of imprisoned Lithe-r
uanian military men is asked. Po-
land, having already answered the
protest, insists it was Lithuania that
began the frontier disturbance by oc-
cupying a forest situated on Polish
territory. Police agents, it was as-
serted, have reestablished the status
quo frontier line. Eight persons have
been arrested and Poland considers,
the incident closed.I
Poland denies that Polish regulars(
participated in the action or that any l
Poles crossed the frontier to launch
the attack or engage in battle.
Both communications have been
transmitted to the members of the
council, and it was understood that
Vittorio Scialoia, of Italy, who is let-
ing as president of the council, will
send messages to both governmentsI

(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, r, eb. 26.-President
Coolidge signed the tax reduction bill I
today, making it a law, although he
fears it iway result in a treasury de-
ficit of $100,000,000 a year hence.
This possibility was advanced to
the executive by Director Lord of the
budget, who based it on, present in-
dications of government receipts and
expenditures during the coming fiscal
year. The President hopes, however,
that increased prospertiy will result
from the tax cut ,swelling govern-
ment income above present estimates,
and that Congress will do its, utmost
to curtail expenditures.
!Liklihood that there will be little
if any surplus for the next year ori
two, in the President's opinion, pre-
clucles that possibility of further tax
reduction next year and perhaps for
sone time to come. Ultimately, how-
ever, he believes that gradual retire-
ment of the debt with continued gov-
ernment economy 'will result in furth-
er federal tax relief.
Immediately after President Cool-
idge had affixed his signature to the
$387,000,000 tax reduction measure,
the treasury called attention to the
fact that the new law allows an ex-
tension in time for payment of the
levies. It was announced that per-
sons or domestic corporations with
incomes of more than $5,000 would
be allowed to file only tentative re-
turns March 15, with payment of one-
fourth of the estimated tax due, and
then be given until May 15 to file
final returns.
This action was taken in view of
the short time within which the first
returns must be filed. The new in-
come blanks with instructions on the
effect of the law already have been

WASIINGTON, Feb. 26.--The Sen-
aite refused today, 33-36, to adopt a
report assailing the departmnout of
justice for the manner in which it con-
ducted an-investigation to determine
whether the Aluminum company of
America has violated Federal court
With this action Senator Robinson,
of Arkansas, the Democratic leader,
abandoned a resolution which he had
presented and which would have au-
tfrorized the President to employ spec-
ial counsel to prosecute contempt pro-
ceedings against the company.
Because of the stockholdings in the
Aluminum concern, Secretary Mellon
stood as the central figure in the con-
troversy which started 'more than a
month ago and traveled the round of
a Senate judiciary committee investi-
gation before it reached the Senate
loor for final determination.
With two exceptions-Blease, ofI
South Carolina, and Bruce, of 1vary-I
land--the Democrats stood solidly for
adoption of the report of the majority
of the judiciary conit tee and theyI
were joined by seven of the Republi-
can insurgents.
The administration forces stood
firm, and with the aid of the two
D >emocrats wre able to blockta a ee
rp-tit ion of the action taken by the ben-
ate in the famous Naval Oil lease
cases, when special counsel was au-
thorized to bring civil and criminal
actions against Edward L. Doheny and
Harry F. Sinclair.
Some fireworks preceded the vote
with Senator Walsh, Democrat, Mon-
tana, author of the majority report,
charging Senator Reed, Republican,
Pennsylvania, with representing inI
the Senate the treasury-secretary of1
t he Aluminum company. Senator
Reed hotly denied the implications
and said he would "take no insult
froin the senator from Montana."

MOSCOW, Feb. 26.-Admiral Kol-
chak, the anti-6olshevist leader, at-

prison, has revealed.
Ishyev pays tribute to Kolchak's
courage and resignation in the face
of death. The admiral 4ttempted to
take poison so that the bolsheviksa
might not have the satisfaction of say-j
ing they had shot him.
Kolchak, it is alleged, was betrayed
by Dr. Blagosh, the official represen-
tative in the Czecho-Slovakian repub-
lic with the allied armies.

Wolverine's Tight Defense Halts
Desperate IllIni Rush In
Second Half
By JoSph Kruger
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Feb. 26.-Mich-
gan refused to be counted out.
Entering the game against the lead-
ers of the Western Conference basket-
ball race with the odds heavily in fa-
vor of their opponents, the Wolverines
displayed a spectacular brand of ball
and upset the Illinois five 33-24 at the
Illinois gymnasium here tonight, and
remained in the mad scramble for
Big Ten court honors.
With Frank Harrigan and Captain
Dick Doyle leading the attack, the
Mather clan took the lead after five
minutes of play and continued to pile
up the score with unfailing accuracy,
completing the half with the score
Michigan Defense Tight
The tight defensive play of the Wol-
verines completely smothered the Illi-
ni during the opening session, Mauer
breaking away for the lone field goal
the losers registered in the first half.
And when the Illinois five threaten-
ed throughout the second half Ed
Chambers flssumed the leading offen-
sive role and counted three baskets
and a foul.
The Illini, with the three substitutes
still in the. game, started the second
half determined to cut down the lead
of the Michigan five and proved' a
constant threat, although the Wolver-
ines remained their, masters. Hlarri-
gan dribbled through the entire Illi-
nois five and then sent the ball
through the net -for his fourth basket
of tha contest. Doolen then made a
pretty follow-up and scored for the
Illin and Haines brought the crowd-
ed stands to their feet with a shot
from the center of the court.
Chambers then scored from the cor-
ner, and Michigan began to employ
stalling tactics, forcing Illinois to
break up her defense. Doolen sent
the ball through the net on a long
heave and Chambers retaliated with' a
shot after following up Ginns long at-
Daugherty, who flashed so brilliant-
ly on the field house court in the first
game between Michigan and Illinois,
scored on a long shot, the star for-
ward; getting' away from Harrigan for
the first time.
hllinl Dangerous
Kassel then revived the Illini hopes
with two short shots, making the
score 27-15 but Doyle increased the
lead with a beautiful basket. The two
fouls by Maurer who returned to the
game. Doolen's third basket and an-
other .long shot by Haines brought
Illinois dangerously close, the score
b eing 29-23.
The stands were shouting wildly for
victory when Coach Mathers sent
Babcock in for Ginn. The skipper
gave the Wolverine guard some in-
structions and sent him back into
the fray immediately. Haines then
scored a free throw, and Michigan
again flashed brilliantly, keeping the
ball away from the frantic. Illipi,
while Doyle and Chambers made good
on foul shots, and the latter player
finished the scoring with a field goal.
Michigan will leave tonight for Ann
Arbor, ,and on Sunday will depart
for Madison where the Wolverines
will face the Wisconsin five Monday
