WASHINGTON, Feb. 12.-The Sen-
ate late tonight passed the tax re-
duction bill, providing a saving of
$456,000,000 in taxes this year to fed-
eral tax payers, and sent it to con-
ference for adjustment of differences
with the House.
Passage of the bill, which came sud-
denly and somewhat as a surprise
even to Senate leaders, is expected to
assure benefits of the proposed tax cut
in the payment of first income tax
installments March 15.

NEW YORK, Feb. 12.-Repre-
sentative coal dealers of this city
expect to have a stock of domes-
tic anthracite coal on hand with-
in three to four weeks after work
is resumed at the mines. Price
reductions on soft coal and sub-
stitutes are also expected within
this period. While the present
price of foreign anthracite is
$28.50 per ton, the first American )
anthracite to be received willI
sell at about $15, dealers believe.
Louis I. Harris, health com-
missioner, when advised of the
strike settlement, said a reason-
able time would be allowed for
those stocked up with soft coal
to burn it, and the city would
then return to strict enforcement
of regulations governing the
creation of smoke.

Destruction of Roman remains in
favor of modern construction and dif-
ficulties of archaeological study in the
face of objections of the Roman build-
ing companies were depicted by Miss
Esther Van Deman, '91, fellow of the
Carnegie Institute of Washington, D.
C., and lecturer for the Archaeological
Institute of Aimerira, in an illustrated
lecture yesterday afternoon in the
Natural Science auditorium.
Miss Van Deman outlined the var-
ious steps in Roman architecture,
showing scientific restorations of the
prominent buildings in the "Eternal
City" under different rulers of the an-
cient Roman republic and empire.
She then told how the great artistic
masterpieces suffered at the hands of
barbarians between the fifth and tenth
centuries, and later under the popes.
The 15th century showed the first
architectural awakening, but few im-
