(-y As-oc-atd Press)
WASHINGTON, April 6.-The House
today appointed nine managers to
prosecute the case against Federal
Judge English of Illinois and formal-
ly notified the Senate of his impeach-
ment on a charge of "high misde-
meanors in office."
The Senate, which is to try the case,
promptly adopted a resolution direct-
ing its secretary to notify the Hous&
that it is ready to receive the mana-
gers. They are not expected to ap-
pear for several days, as they first will
hold session to map out procedure.
Besides naming the prosecutors, five
Republicans and four Democrats, of
the judiciary committee, the Housej

adopted a resolution instructing its
clerk to notify the Senate and de-
mand the conviction of Judge English
in the name of the House and "the
people of the United States."
The House authorized its managers
to sub-poena witnesses and documents
and to bring in witnesses in addition
to those heard by the judiciary com-
After the managers formally pre-
sent the indictment against Judge
English, the Senate will fix a time
at which the judge must appear in per-
son before the Senate bar. Upon his
appearance he will be given a week
or more in which to make written re-
ply to the charges against him.

Secretary Submitted To Two
Cross Examination By
Senator Reed


(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON , April 6.-Crooked-
ness among prohibition officers, the
"splitting" of whiskey for the bootleg
and druggist trade and the misnomer
of "non-refiillable" as applied to
whiskey bottles were a few of the sub-
jects touched upon today as the wets
pressed their case at the Senate pro-
hibition hearing.f
Others included the "unpleasant
duty" of enforcement agents to drink
part of the evidence which they gath-
er, the "reclaiming" of anti-freeze and
even embalming fluid for the bootleg
trade, alcohol diversion, and proposed
legislation to tighten up enforcement.
Assistant Secretary Andrews, the
field marshal of prohibition enforce-
ment, again was the witness, buttress-
ed at times by James E. Jones, di-
rector of prohibition who sat across
the table from his chief and who was
sworn in the midst of the hearings
after General Andrews had called up-
on him several times to furnish in-
formation which he did not have at his
finger tips.
Senator Reed, Democrat, Missouri,
the one avowed wet of the committee
of five, conducted the cross examina-
tion during most of the two hours of
the hearing and the crowd appeared to
get plenty of kicks out of his ques-
tions and observations and the replies
of the two witnesses. Again and
again laughter swept the room and
there was no admonition for the sena-
tors themselves could not refrain from
joining in the demonstration.
But the hearing was not all hilarity,
Senator Reed bore down seriously as
Secretary Andrews suggested a law
which would give the prohibition unit
the right to refuse to reissue permits
without appeal to the courts by the
permittee. The senator declared this
would give "arbitrary" power to of-
ficials to destroy a "legitimate busi-
ness' depending for its life on indus-
trial alcohol.
General Andrews finally conceded
that an appeal to the court should be
allowed in case of the refusal of pe-
mits, just as it is provided for now
when permits are revoked.
Before this subject was disposed of,
Senator Reed called attention that 875
employees of the enforcement unit had
been dismissed for law violations and
he suggested that certainly this au-
thority should not be vested in men
who might turn out to be dishonest.
This led to the field of who recom-I
mended enforcement officers. General
Andrews said the W. C. T. U. and the
Anti-saloon league had done so in the
"But I will say Wayne D. Wheeler
never has made any recommendation,"
he added, referring to the general
counsel of the Anti-saloon league.
"You stopped him, didn't you?"
queried Senator Reed.
"He never started," returned Mr.
Senator larreld, Republican, Okla-
homa, suggestedl that administrators
charged with employing their own
forces should look to the friends of
prohibition for recommendation.
"Then you would have just as many
crooks in the future as you have had
in the past" said Senator Reed.
Director Jones, as the "expert wit-
ness" on non-refillable whiskey bot-
tles testified that there was no such
"You're right," returned Senator
Reed. "You can refill a non-refillable
bottle. Its a little longer operation
and so trying of the 'nerves of the man
who is waiting for a drink."
A reference to "split" whiskey
aroused the curiosity of Senator
Waslsh, Democrat, Montana, an avowed
dry, who asked what it was.
"Alcohol colored with whiskey" ex-
plained General Andrews.
"Sice Senator Walsh doesn't know
anything about this I will say that it
has been stated to me-I have never
performed the operation myself-that
you take a gallon of whiskey and then
alcohol and water and make several

Lecturer Describes Development
Great Lines In West Before
Large Audien'ce



Tracing the development of the
large railroad systems, Prof. John S.
Worley, who is a part time lecturer
in the civil engineering department,
gave the second lecture of a group
on American railways yesterday morn-
ing before a large audience of engi-
neering students and faculty members.
In discussing the great lines of the
[West, Professor Worley revealed the
fact that Judge Denton, a former resi-
dent of Ann Arbor, was the first man
to conceive the idea of a transconti-
nental railroad. After inspecting the
roads in the East, Judge Denton ad-
vocated a line fromi the Great Lakes
to the west coast in 1832, fully 37
years before the Central Pacific from
the West and the Union Pacific from
the East were united at Promontory
Point, Utah, he said.
In regard to the eastern systems,
'Professor Worley described the early
growth of the Baltimore and Ohio, the
New York Central, and Pennsylvania
railroads. Slides were shown of the
construction equipment, and the loco-
motives and cars which were operated
on these lines in their early stages.
Professor Worley also spoke yester-
day at the Chamber of Commerce lun-
cheon giving his forecast of the busi-
ness conditions for the coming year.
"I do not see anything in the horizon
to forecast a poor season," he said.
He cited statistics from the electri-
cal manufacturing industry to show
that since its beginning in the nine-
teenth century there have been steady
increases in both the output of elec-
trical supplies and the consumption
of electrical current. "The momen
tum that such an increase carries with
it will insure that there will be no
permanent reversal of business in the
industry," Professor Worley asserted.
"But I do not see any great revolu-
tionary changes in the field, and so
where is this increase in business
coming from for the next five year
period?" he continued. It will be due
to the increased uses to which elec-
tricity will be put in the fields in
which it is now being utilized, he ex-
' oaed. More will be used for lights
in the homes, farms, and household
In its ,regular weekly meeting, held
last night, Alpha Nu society debated
on the subject of the modern tendency
toward superficiality in education.
Declaring thliatit was necessary to
have specialization in this age of pro-
fessionalism, the affirmative side was
accorded a favorable decision by the
members of the society.
It was announced at the meeting
that the Alpha Nu freshman debating
team, composed of Paul J. Kern, '29,
Walter 13. Fughum, '29, and Durwin
H. Brownell, '29, would meet the
Adelphi freshmen in a debate to be

Rabbi Is head Of Jewish Institute Of
Religoif And haMs Written

Rabbi Stephen Wise of the Free syn-
agogue of New York, president of the
Jewish Institute of Religion, and the
leader of American Zionism, will
speak at 3:15 o'clock today in the
Natural Science auditorium on the
subject "The Revolt of Youth-Against
What?" Rabbi Wise, who is to de-
liver a speech tonight in Detroit, is
being brought to Ann Arbor under the
auspices of the Round Table club. y
Rabbi Wise came into public dis-
cussion recently, especially in relig-
ious circles, because of a sermon
which lie delivered in New York dur-;
ing the week of last Christmas. In
this sermon, which was regarding
Jesus Christ, Rabbi Wise made three
statements for which he was attacked
by orthodox Jews as unsound and un-
representative of Jewish thought.
Rabbi Wise declared that Jesus really
did exist, that he was a great teacher
and that the Jews should accept him
as such and as one of their own. Be-
cause of this sermon, the rabbi was
denounced as an heretic, was tried for
that charge, but was not convicted.
Rabbi Wise was born in Budapest,
Hungary, March 17, 1872. He emigrat-
1 ed to this country and studied from
1887 to 1891 at the College of the City
of New York; he, however, receive
the A. B. degree from Columbia uni-
versity in 1892, and the Ph.D. degree
from that institution in 1901. He was
pastor of the congregation of Madison
avenue synagogue, New York, from
1893 to 1900. For the next six years
he was pastor at the Beth Israel
synagogue, Portland, Ore., and in 1907
he founded, and has since been rabbi
at the Free synagogue of New York.
While he was in Oregon he founded
the Oregon state conference of chari-
ties and correction and the federation
of American Zionists, and was a child
labor commissioner of that state.
Vice-president of the Free Religious
association of America, Rabbi Wise is
also the founder of the Zionist organi-
zation of America, and a member of
the American Jewish relief commis-
sion. He was a delegate to the
American-Jewish congress in Paris,
and while there, in 1919, was appoint-
1 ed a chevalier of the Legion d'Hon-
Rabbi Wise was the founder and is
president of the Jewish Institute of
Religion, an institution which trains
men for Jewish ministry. le is a
member of the executive commission
of the Woodrow Wilson foundation
1 and a trustee of the Near East Relief
commission. He is president of the
American Jewish congress.
In 1901, Rabbi Wise wrote "'The
Ethics of Solomon Iba Gabirol, and
published two sets of his sermons,
"Beth Israel Pulpit," in three volumes,
and "Free Synagogue Pulpit," in five
volumes. Ile is also the author of
"How To Face Life," and "Child Ver-
sus Parent."
According to John H. Elliott, '26,
president of the Round 'fable club, a
charge of 25 cents will be collected at
the door of the Natural Science audi-
torium for the speech by Rabbi Wise.

GRAND RAPIDS, April 6.-Declar-
ing his opposition to compulsory mil-
itary training at the Michigan State
college, the Rev. W. E. Beckett, pastor
of Alto M. E. church, called upon the
Grand Rapids Ministers' association
at the April meeting at the Y. M. C. A.
yesterday to pass a resolution urging
the training at least be made elective.
Mr. Beckett gave a report for a com-
mittee investigating military training
in schools and colleges, the committee
having been appointed by the Method-
ist Association of Ministers.E
"There is a question in my mind
whether we are not becoming too mili-
taristic, whether there is not a danger
of being swamped with the same spirit
that has swamped Europe," Mr. Beck- I
ett declared.
"Compulsory military training is a
handicap to those specializing in rural
education. The nian who is to work in
the country has no need of it, it is of
no value to him. Why should he be
made to take this three hours of
training a week? Students of medi-
clue,law, etc., do not have to go under
this handicap.
"From letters sent out I feel that
the spirit is unanimous in this regard
on the part of the rural leaders of
Michigan. Let us eliminate the com-1
pulsory feature of military training."

Prof. 0. J. Campbell of the English de-
partment who had had the symbol of
honor in his possession for a year.
Inwan atmosphere of ridicule, satire,
and irony, dignified members of the
faculty, emotionless journalists, ambi-
tious students, and sedate townsfolk
forgot all petty pride and reveled in
an evening of wit and humor. Start-
ing with the radio program, which em-
phasized the idiosyncraies of well-
known professors on the campus, until
the last address, the largest assem-
blage in the history of the Gridiron
banquet responded in vociferous man-
ner to remarks, speeches, and debates.
Prof. Athur L. Cross of the history
department, acting in the capacity of
toastmaster, opened the program after
dinner with a few introductory re-
marks. He then signalled-for an oath
from all those present, particularly
newspapermen, not to divulge any per-
Sonal remarks which might be made
during the evening,In an effort to give
all speakers the greatest latitude and
"Cigar Ash on the Vest' was the
topic of President Little. In his ad--
dress he contrasted the subject of his
speech with the problems of daily life.
The discussion session opened with

question: "The Abolition of the Pro-
fessor." He was answered by Ray
Alexander, '27L, who gave his argu-

Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the his-
tory department next showed why the
examination should be retained, cit-
ing numerous examples of students'
replies made on bluebooks.
"The State Press" and the "Audi-
torial We" were the topics touched
upon by James Schermerhorn of Dc-
troit, former editor of the Detroit
Times. In his discussion he men-
tioned, many incidents of interest
which occurred during his years in
the newspaper business.
In presenting the Oil Can, Profes-.
sor Campbell remarked, "It gives me
great pleasure indeed to present this
token of esteem to 14'esident Little, a
Harvard man, inasnmuch as it was
given to me by a graduate of that
university, Prof. Thomas Reed."
President Little replied by declar-
ing that, to be the recipient of the
Oil Can, was the greatest surprise
and recognition be has had since com-
1 ing to the University, and a "certain
Imark of true friendship."
Mayor John Smith of Detroit out-
lined 'the qualities of the successful
journalist, and told of his experiences
with newspapers.
"Abolish the Examination" was the
talk given by Dr. Frederick Coller,
associate professor of surgery, in re-
ply to the arguments, presented by
Professor Slosson.
Dean Mortimer E. Cooley of the engi-
neering college brought the discussion
session to a close with attacks on the
