SANTA ROSA, Calif., March 29.-
Luther Burbank, originator of a new
horticultor and an author of some
striking new theories on the hereafter,
is slowly mending tonight, from a
slight but persistent illness brought
about by nervous strain arising from
the furor created by his recent state-
nients on the final destiny of men.
The attending doctors cautioned
rest and quiet in order that tired
heart might rest and shattered nerves
nmight be restored to something like
their original vigor. In the mean-
tine letters and telegrams piled up in
an adjoining room; answers to Mr.
Burbank's statements on religion. He
slept at periods last night and had an
unbroken period of four hours slum-

and respiration are satisfactory al-
though there is some :abdominal pain
which is engaging the particular at-
tention of his physician, Dr. Joseph
II. Shaw.

In Interest Figures Occasions
Commissioi Accusations

(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, March 29. - The
Italian debt settlement kicked up a
real rumpus today in the Senate with
rules going by the board as senators
engaged in a running crossfire of attack
} and defense. Premier Mussolini came
in for a few broadsides and the con-
flict even extended to who was re-
sponsible for writing the Republican
party platform of 3t924.
While the debate of three hours was
reaching its climax the Amercian debt
commission was accused of having
used a "new system of mathematics
in figuring the Ita ian settlement."
This accusation name after Senator
Smoot, Republican, Utah, a member of
the commission and generally regard-
ed as a financial wizard had made an
error of $23,000,000 in calculating

Untoward Events
Reveal 'Weakness
Of Briand Cabinet
(By Associated Press)
PARIS, March 29.--lntoward events
today again cast their shadow over
the Briand government on the eve of
the crisis in the discussion of financial
restoration for France, the seventh
such crisis since Etienne Clementel
abandoned the finance ministry one
year ago.
The government was defeated in the
chamber today on the question of
credits for nilitary operations in
Syria, and the franc again sagged to a
new low level, because of the impres-
sion created by the communists' sue-
c ss in yesterday's Special election.
The cabinet did iot pose a question
of confidence on the request for the
Syrian credit, so the defeat did not
involve the fate of the Briand gov-
eminent. It wa,; regarded, however,j
as a significant revelation of the gov-
ernment's weakness on the eve of an-j
other struggle to ob tain parliamentary
sanction for new taxes.

College Stars
Bring Confict
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, March 29.-Conflict
between athletic directors of the
western conference Big Ten and the
National Amateur Athletic union de-
veloped today over the practice of
college undergraduate stars appear-
ing under chub colors in A. A. U. coma
Protests against such practice cou-
pled with a request that the A. A. U.
take measures to prevent it, recently
were lodged by C. P. Clevenger, of
Indiana university, spokesman for the
athletic directors of the Big Ten. In
a letter made public today, Murray
Hulbert of New York, president of
the A. A.' U., characterized the pro-
Iposal as "unreasonable," and denied
that the situation warranted any cor-
rective measures by his organization.
While his letter did not say so, it
was intimated that Mr. Hulbert re-
sented the implication that the dire;-
tors coupled the A. A. UI with profes
sional football.
