Kansas Senator Says American Market
Should Not Be Destroyed
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 26.--"Tariff
schedules need revision in the inter-
ests of agriculture, but to accept the
"siren song of the Democratic low
tariff advocates would be to deliver
a body blow to American economic
life from which we likely would suffer
for many years," Senator Capier, Re-
publican, Kansas, said in a statement
issued here tonight by the Republican
senatorical campaign committee.
The American market is the best one
in the world for American farmers,
Senator Capper said, and nothing
should be hastily done which will de-j
stroy or greatly weaken it."
"Business must be active, and keep
S its stability to pay high wages to thei
city merhants if our home markets
are to absorb the largest quantity of
farm products," he said.
"Industrial life is prosperous today
and has the buying power to absorb
good quantities of farm produ'cts. I
feel that our aim in working out na-
tional economic policies should be
maintain this status. It is true that
agriculture has been in a sub-normal
economic condition, and it would be a
mistake to minimize this in any of our
thinking. But it seems to me that it
would be far better to work out
miethods which will bring agriculture
to the high level of the rest of the
country, rather than to throw a mon-
key wrench into business and bring
the whole economic structure of the
country down in a grand mess."

Carnegie Institute Lecturer Talks On
Facts Relating To Work Of
Modern Scientists.
Telling the story of the astron-
omical learning and the wonderful
architectural technique developed by
the Indians in Central America 1400
years ago, and showing the slides of
the remains as they have been built
up by the parties sent out from the
United States, Dr. S. G. Morley, as-
sistant in Middle American Archae-
ology in the Carnegie Institution at
Washington, delivered his lecture on
"The Results of the 1926 Field Sea-
son" yesterday afternoon in Natural
Science auditorium.
The lecture was mainly composed
of facts pertinent to the excavation
of many temples and statues that have
been tied up with things in the sciehi-
tific and artistic fields. The evidences
of the civilization that existed at that
time is mainly carried on these statues
and on the facades of the remains of
temples and buildings. With the aid
of lantern slides in color Dr. Morley
attempted to give his hearers some
idea of the size of the project and of
the importance of the things that were
being done by the institution.
Among the examples of the art that
were uncovered in the excavations
there were many large figures, bril-
liantly colored and depicting scenes
in life and animals that are supposed
to have been common at that time.
There was also one large mural paint-
ing that is being reconstructed with
the hope that it may throw more light
upon the actual lives of the people.

Craig Will Inspect
Forestry Exhibition i
Prof. Robert Craig, Jr., of the for-
estry department has gone to attend
a portable saw-mill demonstration at
Pennsylvania State college, -Penn
State, Pennsylvania. He will repre-
sent the University there.
The meeting consist of demonstra-
tions of various types of portable mills
and the best means and ways of run-
ning them. It is considered especially
pertinent to Michigan's interests be-
cause of the fact that there are in this
state many small tracts that could be
cut and made into serviceable timber
by means of the small mill but which'
are too small to warrant the erection
of a large permanent mill. Professor

Emergency Powers,
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, Oct. 26.-The government
emergency powers in connection with
the coal strike have been continued
by the House of Commons. The vote
for continuance was 185 to 68.

negotiations, but Parliament itself has
thus far been able to make no pro-
gress towards a settlement.

cil of the trades union congress sought
and had a private meeting with Pre-
mier Baldwin, in which the coal sit-
uation was discussed and the deputa-
tion will see the miners' leader and
ascertain whether any new approach I

them while they introduced themselves
and were made acquainted with the
activities of the Union through thef
Underclass department.

the department outlined the purpose
of the groups. "We want you to knowf
your class mates," he said, "and we
hope that through these informal
group meetings every three weeks, I
that you will be enabled to do so. At
each meeting prominent men on the
campus will speak. The Union is
planning to conduct a program of in-
tergroup sports to encourage a united
class spirit and an interest in class'
John Molenda, '28, spoke briefly to
the groups. He urged each one ofI
them to take an active interest in athle-
tics, to keep eligible for sports and
other activities, and to use the op-
portunities offered by the Union to
make permanent friendships among
the members of their own class.
Cards have been sent out to the
members of the class informing them
of the purpose of the groups, telling
them of the time and room number of

Statements In Regard To
Democratic Opponent f
(By Associated Press)
SEATTLE, Wash., Oct. 26.-Efforts
to secure from Senator Wesley L.
Jones, Republican, information con-
cerning campaign expenditures in his
behalf, failed in the final day's ses-
sion of the senatorial investigation
Denial of all knowledge of cam-'
paign expenditures other than his own,
which he said would not exceed $200,
and some additional by Millard Hart-
son, collector of customs here, and E.
B. Benn, United States marshal, for
printed matter, marked the testimony
of the senior Washington senator.
Correspondent Mentioned
A difference of opinion between
Senator Jones and Leo Sullivan, staff
correspondent of the Seattle Times,
who had been travelling with Jones in
his campaign over what the Senator
had actually said about his Democratic
opponent, A. Scott Bullitt, developedj
in the day's testimony. t
After Senator Jones had denied
utterancesnattributedto him inthe
Times articles, Mr. Sullivan was called
by Mr. Bullitt and declared that he
had quoted the Senator's speeches ac-
curately and faithfully. He excepted I
from the classification of direct quota-
tions some articles which he said were
founded on interviews and statements
of the Senator in the course of their
Charges that Mr. Bullitt had spent<
In excess of $100,000 in his campaign,I
and that he had been given the back- -
ing of the "brewers, distillers, and -
saloon interests," attributed to Sena-1
tor Jones, were disclaimed by him, as
was responsibility for the demand,
made by Sam R. Sumner, Republican1
state chairman for the investigation

Jones' campaign from the national Re-
publican senatorial committee was

clared, to the state central committee.
He told also of a check for $200 which
had been sent in by a "Mr. Axtell" of
New York, whom he identified as at-i
torney for the Seamens' union. Be-
cause of his desire to be unhampered
in his consideration of seamen's legis-1
lation as chairman of the Senate com-
merce committee, the senator said heI
returned his check to the donor. I
Of the Anti-Saloon league report of
his campaign and that of the W. C. T.
U., Senator Jones declared he had
never solicited the aid of any organ-
ization, adding "of' course, I am glad
to have it."

balcony seats.j
The Reserve band will play beforeI
the game and between halves.

I several xylophone numbers. This pro-
gram will mark the first attempt at
entertainment at the grid-graph.

tracted for morecomplete messages

Stuff," this year's Union Opera on its
tour this winter, will begin at 8 o'-1
clock tonight in room 308, Union, it

nual production will contain 22 mu-
sicians this year, this being slightly
less than that in "Tambourine," which
made the Christmas vacation tour of
cities with a group of 26 men. The

reduction is partly due to the nature I
I of this year's production, a modern
!musical comedy in contrast to "Tam-
bourine's" fantastic and imaginarys
setting, in which less variety in in-
struments is needed.
All men, playing instruments, who
