Finance Is Problem
One of the main problems which
will confront the federation at its

organization. The proposed constitu-

tirely financed through subscriptions.
Edward Bok of the Curtis publications
is one of the large subscribers. j
The principal purpose of the fed-
eration is to examine and study the
system of higher education in the
United States. It is an outgrowth of
the student World Court conference
held at Princeton, N. J., last winter.j
John Elliott, '26, who represented the1
University at that conference, is the
national treasurer of the federation.
Fredriks Berger, a senior at theI
University of Cincinnati, and repre-
sentative of the North Central region,'

rangements with the Student council

(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22.--A simpli-
fied McNary-Haugen, a farm relief bill
will be introduced on the opening day
of Congress by Senator McNary, Re-
publican, Oregon, for a final vote.
In making this announcement to-
day the Oregon Senator, who will be
confirmed as chairman of the Senate
Agricultural committee, when Con-
gress meets, declared the same prin-
ciple of the old bill would be retained.
but the administrative machinery
would be simplified.
Expect More Support
He predicted the measure would
draw more support at the short ses-
sion than ever before as the farmers
of the West and South were demand-
ing relief from low farm prices. As
chairman of the agricultural com-
mittee, he will be in a position to hold
the measure more forcibly before the
Although he will not complete the
draft of the measure until after he
has conferred with heads of the lead-]

Nary has decided to ask for an ap-
propriation of $250,000,000 to set up
export machinery to sell surplust
crops under the management of a
board to be appointed by the President
from the twelve federal land bank
The government would not stand to,
lose anything under this plan, hef
said, as the sum would be paid back1
out of an equalization fee assessed
against the producers. The crops toj
be included in the bill are wheat,
corn, cotton and rice, the last named
appearing for the first time in connec-
tion with such legislation. The Presi-
dent has a free hand in naming the
board, the members of which would

ness and have a salary of $10,000 a
Has Received Assurance 1
Senator McNary has received as-
surances of the support of other mem-
bers in his demand for farm relieff
legislation at the coming session.
Senator Capper, Republican, Kan-f
sas, said today that Congress should
at once adopt the McNary-Haugen
bill, or some similar plan, while Rep-
resentative Dickinson, Republican,f
Iowa, a House agricultural spokes-
man, saw a way to relieve the farmers
through the surplus in the treasury.
"I believe the agricultural/forces of]
the West and South will be stronger
than ever for the McNary-Haugen bill,
for the low prices of farm products1
are causing more talk than ever be-
fore," Senator Capper asserted.

Chicagoans who cannot get tickets to
the Army-Navy football game _.at
Soldiers field Saturday, joined the
lucky thousands today in preparation
for receiving the city's military guests.
Thirty thousand is a generous esti-
mate of Chicago's share of the 100,000
who will see the game, for only 40,000
seats were available to the general
public after the service contingents
bought their share, and a good many
of these went to members of Congress
and to persons outside of Chicago.
But everybody hopes for a glimpse
of the gold-braided cadets and mid-
shipmen during their visit here, and
a dozen times as many persons will
come here from out of the city for the
event as will actually get inter

Hundreds who have no hope of
obtaining tickets are coming for re-
unions with relatives in the Army

dreds moreare coming in the hope of
hearing about the game from some-
