be a deciding contst Becaie each
chool has won two of the four pre-

Prof. Earl E. Fleischman of the
,public speaking department, who has
assisted in the work of preparing the
teams, believes they are among theI
best that have represented Michigan
and thinks that they have an evenI
chance of beating their annual rivals.
This is the second time that ,the de-
bate has been a triangular affair,
as Indiana was admitted last year.
This is the only intercollegiate pub-
lic speaking activity that is open to
the w6men of the University, and was
established due to the fact that they3
so seldom made the regular teams
for the Midwest and Central league
debates. The men for these squads
are now regularly chosen from the
intercollegiate debate class taught by
Professor Densmore, and the selec-
tions of the teams for the Central
league contest will be made sometime
before Christmas from the members
of this class, according to an an-
nouncement made yesterday.

Speaker Of House Wishes To Apply
Sorplus To Credit Proposal Or
Reduction Of Pbli Debt
(By Associated Press)
V A S'H I N G T ON, Dec. 1.-The
breach between Republicans and
Democrats over how to tap the treas-
ury surplus to the best advantage of
the taxpayers' pocket books, widened
today at the Capitol.
This subject virtually excluded allt
other issues, and drew into the vor-
tex of discussion practically every
recognized party leader of the House,
where revenue legislation must origi-

conference, came out in favor of an
immediate $31,000,000 cut in tax rates,
while Republican party chieftains
stoutly maintained that they would
oppose, as ill advised, a new revenue!
bill at the approaching session. i
Minority Drafts Program
The Democratic program, drafted
by minority members of the House
ways and means committee, which has
initial jurisdiction in taxation mat-
ters, is based on an agreement reach-i
1 ed between Representative Garner, ofE
Texas, ranking Democrat on the com-
mittee, and Senator Simmons, of
North Carolina, who heads the minor-t
ity membership of the Senate finance
Under the Democratic proposal, the
corporation tax, at present 13 1-2 per
cent, would be cut probably to 11 per
cent. The plan was made public by.
Chairman Oldfield of the Democratic
congressional committee, who said:
"The exact rate of the corporation
tax was left subject to determination
after further figures for which the
treasury has been asked are available.
It is the sense of the conference that
the treasury will have a surplus at
the end of the present fiscal year, ap-
proximating a half-million-dollars and
further relief to the tax payers can
well betafforded and ought to be given
without delay."'
Longworth Visits White House ~
Even before the Democratic pro-
gram had been announced, Speaker
1 Longworth, after a visit to the White
House, asserted he was opposed to
tax reductioi at present and felt the
treasury surplus should either be ap-
i plied to President Coolidge's tax
credit proposal or to reduction of the
public debt.
The Democratic plan also will en-
counter the opposition of Chairman
Madden of the House appropriations
committee, who holds that the 70th.
Congress would present the right
time for a new revenue law, although
in his opinion, the President's pro-
posal should be enacted at this ses-
Both Madden and Longworth con-
tended it was impossible to estimate
returns under the present revenue act
and that Congress must go slow for
that reason.

Manner Of Life In
European Colleges
Related By Coffey
Taking particularly a comparative1
viewpoint, Prof. Hobart R. Coffey, of
the Law school, related incidentsE
characteristic of student life in Euro-I
pean universities, last night at the
Student's Press club meeting.
Professor Coffey stressed the diffi-f
culty which is confronted in entering
I universities in France and Germany.
In France he found it expedient to ar-
rive about six weeks in advance of the
opening of the semester, while pro-
fessors, on the other hand, arrived
whenever convenient and dismissedt
their respective clasess when they
had completed the necessary details
of the course. Professor Coffey cited
the fact that European students are
about 10 times as independent as theirI
American contemporaries, this being{
an inevitable consequence of their
1 environment.
The chief diversion of the GermanI
students, he stated, is reading. They
are especially interested in the in-
i terpretation of events as recorded in
the world-wide newspapers filed in
their study halls. This is to a less
degree true of the French who have
no sports, fraternities, student news-
papers or magazines, and glee clubs
with which to otherwise occupy them-
selves, he said.
Asked what the attitude of these
" European students is regarding Amer-
ican students entering their univer-
sities, Professor Coffey stated that he
was surprised to discover that the
