Thunderous Appinuse Greets Defense
Against Charges Of Excessive
Drinking By Congressmen
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 4.-Both the j
Senate and the House indulged today l
in their daily dozen on prohibition.
The Senate sent along a resolution,
to Secretary Mellon inquiring among
other things, what hand, if any, the
Anti-Saloon league or Wayne B.
Wheeler had in the decision to. poison
industrial alcohol, much of which has
found its way into the bootleg trade.
'The House gave thunderous lap-
plause to a defense of its membership
against a charge of excessive drinking{
and received a new crop of bills
sponsored by the wets.
The prohibition subject also got into
a discussion before the Senate com-
merce committee with President Dal-
ton of the Fleet corporation and
Chairman O'Connor of the shipping
board at odds as to whether the dry-
ness of American liners constitutes a
handicap in their efforts to compete
with foreign wet lines. O'Connor took
the affirmative and Dalton the nega-
tive, but committee members 'did not
undertake to set themselves up as
judges of the debate.
The Senate resolution of inquiry re-
garding poisonous alcohol was acted
upon in the absence of its sponsor,
Senator Edwards, Democrat, New Jer-
sey, a wet leader. His colleague,
Senator Edge, Republican, 'insisted on
action and obtained it after Senator

them with the assurance that the de-

this assurance, but are foiled again.
In considering this phenoma, Deani
John R. Effinger, of the literary col-r

think there are some particular
courses which are easier for some
students than they are for others, and
naturally the student best adapted tot

to obtain a higher grade with less;

course difficult to master. Previous
training may have played the chief
role in making the course easier
for the one student than the other.
Perhaps, it is this success that the
one student achieves in the course

Toledo has Largest House, With 2,623,
In Audience; Grand Total Of
29,631 See Performances
"Front Page Stuff," the 21st annual
Mimes production, was presented in
the last of three performances in
Detroit, Monday night, before a large
audience, bringing to a close the
Opera's tour of the East and Middle
West where 15 performances were
given during the Christmas holidays.
The "Michigan Opera Special," car-
rying the 100 students who composed
the "Front Page Stuff" company, ar-
rived in Ann Arbor at 2:30 o'clock
yesterday morning.
During the 1926 trip 23,461 persons1
saw the Opera, making a grand total
of 29,631 including the estimated num-
ber of paid admissions during the one
week run in this city. Toledo, with a
record breaking audience of 2,623, af-
forded the largest house of any city
on the itinerary and set a higher
mark than that of "Tambourine" last
year, when the Saginaw audience
numbered 2,582. Saginaw was second
with an attendance of 2,525, while
Detroit was third with an average of
2,052 for each of three performances.
The average attendance was 1,801. At-
tendance marks in the remaining
cities follow: Chicago 1,834; Indian-
apolis 1,264; Cincinatti 1,381; Cleve-
land 1,870; Lansing 1,411; Grand Rap-
ids 1,765; New York 1,327; Washing-
ton 801; Philadelphia 1,372; and Buf-
falo 1,100.
The trip this year was a decided
success financially, and the gross in-
come, though not yet entirely com-
puted, is running very close to that
netted by "Tambourine" last year. The
gross income for the Ann Arbor runi
was considerably more than last year.I
I Toledo, with an $1,173.50 increase
over the 1925 showing, netted the.
greatest financial increase this year.

Harrigan And Oosterbaan Score High
For Michigan; Adams and Snyder
Star For Southerners
Michigan's basketball team gained
its fourth consecutive victory of the
season and won its final pre-Confer-
enco game by decisively defeating the
University of Maryland five by a score
of 39 to 25 last night at Yost field
The Wolverines have shown steady
improvement since the opening game
[of the season with Michigan State be-
fore the Christmas holidays and prov-
ed by last night's victory that Mich-
igan will be represented in the Big
Ten Conference competition by a
strong team. Coach Mather revamped
his team after an unimpressive vic-
tory over Cornell college and develop-
ed a five strong enough to defeat the
powerful basketball squad of the Uni-
versity of Syracuse.
Maryland, ranked as a strong de-
fensive team, met its match in the
Wolverines. The first half was fea-
tured particularly by the strong de-
fenses formed by both teams, the scor-
ing being unusually slow during the
first 15 minutes of play. After the
first five minutes of play, the score
was 2 to 1 in favor of the Wolverines.
Michigan had its first opportunities to
score via the free throw route, but
Harrigan failed in his first three at-
tempts. Oosterbaan, keeping up the
same pace he set in the Syracuse
game, opened the scoring with a short
shot after receiving the ball on a pass
from Harrigan. Nine minutes of play
passed before Oosterbaan scored his
second field goal, bringing the score
to a 4 to 1 count.
Maryland quickly came to the
front and took the scoring lead after
Stevens raced up to the basket un-
guarded and dropped the ball through
the hoop. Faber scored another goal
for the Southerners on a long shot.
The lead changed hands three times
within a period of four minutes, Mich-
igan breaking away for a four point
lead sifting through the Maryland de-
fense and scoring on short shots just
before the half ended. Michigan led
the Maryland five, 15-11, at the end of
the first period.
Michigan opened the second period
with an amazing offense and scored
four baskets before the Maryland five
could register a point. The Wolver-
ines continued its rapid scoring pace
until they had doubled their oppon-,
ent's score. Coach Mather then called
his reserve material into the fray,
Martin replacing Oosterbaan for the
first substitution. Adams, tall center
of the Southern team, put a scare into
the Wolverines when he sand three
baskets in short order. Rasnick and
Babcock were sent in for Chambers
and Martin, respectively, and added
speed to the game.
When the game ended, Coach Mather
had only one regular on the floor,
Harrigan being the only man to play
the entire game. Harrigan was the'
outstanding performer of the game,
scoring 17 points and being the most
sensational floor man. Ooterbaan
was high scorer for the Wolverines
in the first half, tallying three baskets
1 and one free throw.
Adams, the Maryland center, was
high scorer for the visitors, with four
baskets and one free throw to his
