bill stood pat at their opening meet-

their respective chambers on the mea-

000,000 in tax reduction for this year.
While the Senate representatives
are expected to make considerableI
concessions on the reductions voted
by that body in addition to those ap-j
proved by the House, and thus bring
the measure closer, at least, to the

Gives Talk On
"Medicine And
Social Work"
Outlining the purpose and the de-
velopment of hospital and social serv-
ice, Eatherine McMahon, professor at
the Boston School of Social Work,1
spoke on the subject "?Medicine and
Social Work" yesterday afternoon in
Natural Science auditorium.
"The job of the social worker inj
the hospital," she pointed out, "is to
make permanent the work of the doc-
tom'. A p~atient may be allowed to
leave his hospital bed, but unless he
receives proper care during his con-
valesence, unless he is surrounded by
the -proper social and business en-
vironment, he is subject to a recur-
rence or his disease. Or a patient
may be diagnosed at a clinic, but
through ignorance of the seriousness
of his ailment or through failure to
understand the doctor's verdict he
may never follow the work of the,
clinic up with the proper treatment.
The social worker concerns herself
with the eliminnation of-this waste of
medical facilities and -human bodies.
With her knowledge of family condi-
tions, prejudices, and of the commu-
nity agencies that may alleviate these
troubles, the social worker carries the
work of the clinic or hospital through
to finish and sees the patient not only
on the road to recovery, but fully re-
covered and back at his work."

(By Associated Press)
PITTSBURGH, Feb. 15.-The fed-
eral trade commission, delving into,
alleged monopolistic practices of the
Aluminum Company of America, in
which Secretary of the Treasury A. W.
Mellon is a stockholder, struck a snag
today when counsel for the company
refused to produce the names of per-
sons owning more than 3 per cent of
the stock.
R. P. Whiteley, commission counsel,
asked that the names of the stock-
holders be put into the records, for
Ithe purpose of comparing them with
stockholders of companies in competi-
tion with the Aluminum Company of
America. W. W. Smith of counsel for
the company, said the names would
not be produced. He considered such
information "highly confidential."
Whiteley was upheld by Major W. W.
Sheppard, commission examiner, who
ordered thatthehlist bepresented.
Smith reiterated his stand, and the
subject was dismissed for the time.
Later, Whiteley said he had the ques-
tion under discussion. It was the gen-
eral belief that he would go into the
courts in his efforts to obtain the
