The teams battled -on even terms dur-

More Liberal Exemptions To Be Made,
If Admissions And Dues Levy
Is Restored
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 13. - House
leaders served notice today that they
would insist on restoration to the
revenue bill of some of the federal
taxes wiped out by the Senate in go-
ing more than $125,000,000 beyond the
total of $330,000,000 reduction pro-,
posed for this year by the House.
Opening of the conference between
representatives of the Senate and the
House, at which differences will be
ironed out, was delayed until Monday,
pending the printing of the bill pass-
ed by the Senate.
Chairman Smoot of the finance com-
mittee, who will head the Senate con-
ference admitted to President Cool-
idge today that the Senate has ex-
ceeded the bonds of tax reduction de-
clared possible by the treasury by at
least $100,000,000.
Particularly irksome to the Housej
leaders are the decisions of the Sen-
ate to eliminate completely the taxes
on inheritances, passenger automo-
biles, admissions, and dues. These
j will form the main basis of conten-
tion in the conferences, and are con-
sidered the most likely taxes to be re-.
stored to the bill.!
House spokesmen pointed out that
if a 3 per cent automobile tax as
provided by the House and a slightly
modified admissionssand dues tax
were returned to the bill, it would
cut the total amount of reduction for!
this year by almost $100,000,000 which
it is estimated will bring the total tax
within limits acceptable to the admin-
istration. These taxes, reduced iy
the House, were wiped out by th-e Sen-
ate by votes of Democrats and Repub-
lican insurgents.
While repeal of the inheritance tax
would have no material effect on rev-
enue receipts this year, House leaders
have declared they will not yield on
the principal that this tax should be
If an admissions and dues levy is
restored to the bill, it is expected=
more liberal exemptions will be al-
lowed. The Senate finance commit-
tee proposed to increase the exemp-
tions to tickets costing 75 cents and
less, whereas the exemption now pre-
vails only for tickets of 50 cents and
less. y
The general feeling prevailed todayl
on both sides of the Capitol that the
$23,000,000 additional reduction pro-
vided by increased cuts in the sur
tax rates applying on incomes be-
tween $24,000 and $100,000 as voted
by the Senate would be acceptable.
These cuts were made at the insist-
ence of Senate Democrats in the muchI
discussed compromise in which they
accepted the 20 per cent maximum sur
tax figures.

Fron every city and hamlet came the
word that the miners were eagerly
awaiting for the hundreds of colliers'

Professor Barnouw DIscusses Topic,
"The Fault Of The Dutcht"
Cites Holland's Glits
As an appreciation "of this recog-
nition between the University and a
great friendly nation," President Clar-
ence Cook Little gave "the sincere
pledge of the University to do every-
thing possible to carry out the splen-
did spirit in which the presentation
was made," in accepting the gift of
an autographed portrait of Queen Wil-
helmina of the Netherlands, which
was tendered yesterday afternoon by
Jonkheer A. D. C. DeGraeff, Dutch
minister to the United States.
i Jonkheer DeGraeff explined the
ambition of the Dutch people to es-
tablish chairs in Dutch history and
literature at the universities of Amer-
ica, and to collect libraries of source
material such as that now being or-
I ganized here. He mentioned the work
of Dr. Albert Hyma, of the history de-
pa'rtment, who wrote a history of the
early awakening in the church pre-
ceding the reformation. He told how
the book at once won recognition of
the foremost historical leaders in this
country and in Europe. He spoke of
the debt of the United States to Hol-
land for the ideas of religious and po-
litical freedom which influenced the
Pilgrims, and which were embodied
in the government of the Netherlands
a century before the Revolution. He
quoted John Adams, who said that the
origins of Dutch and American poli-
tical thought were so much alike that
one seemed the transcript of the oth-
er, and also Franklin, who recognized
the Netherlands as the birthplace of
many American ideals.
Outlines Dutch Contribtiols
Prof. A. J. Barnouw of Columbia
university, gave the main address of
the convoc t'On on the subject "The
Fault of the Dutch?" He quoted the
English statesman, Canning, who
said, "In mattres of commerce the
fault of the Dutch was giving too lit-
tle and asking. too much." He then
outlined the chief contributions of the
Netherlands to civilization, showing
that in regard to matters by which a
nation would be remembered in the
future, the Dutch had made great gifts
without asking anything but recog-
nition. He stated that "Holland need
not regret the fact that she is not
often mentioned in the headlines of
American newspapers, for the time
will come when American textbooks
will teach American children what
Holland gave America in the reign of
Queen Wilhelmina."
The Dutch resent being called
a "brave little Holland," Professor
Barnouw said, for their ambition, as
exp'ressed by Queen Wilhelmina, is
"to be great in everything in which a
small nation can be," and, he added,
{ those are the same ideals for, which
the universities stand, science, art,
and literature. He spoke of the Dutch
universities, especially Leyden which
still maintains the reputation which
it possessed two centuries ago. He
mentioned the great scholars of Hol-
land of the past, Grotius, Spinoza,
Erasmus, and Leeuwenhoek, as well
I as several contemporaries whom he
predicted would achieve lasting repu-
' tations.
Holland And America One On
"In wealth or knowledge and power
of mind," he said, "the Dutch have
I given freely. This can be partly ex-
8 plained by the traditional care for the
education of all in the Netherlands.
I Contemporary sources of the 16th and
I 17th centuries from other countries
show that practically all the people
were literate, the daughters as well
I as the sons." He quoted the book of
Doctor Hyma on "The Christian.
Renaissance," saying that "the awak-
ening in religion and education after
the 13th century entered the kitchen
and farmhouse as well as the school,
I pulpit, and office." In this spirit of
j democratic education, stated Profes-
Ssor Barnouw, Holland and America
are one.

proposed today in a resolution intro-
duced by Representative Britton, Rep.
Illinois, who charged the organization
with exercising "insidious influences

other improper practices."

It is also charged that officials of
the league or its subsidiaries have
been sent to penitentiaries for collect-
ing money under false pretences, and
that it has been shown that a justice
of a state supreme court and an at-

long been on the payroll of the anti-
saloon league.

He expressed the opinion that de-
mocracy in education does not level
all the people to a standard, explain-
ing that "while Holland has a stand-
ard of educational requirements, it is
a nation of inveterate individualism."
He concurred with the idea that

veloping his own native talents."
