Senator Robinson, the Democratic
leader, proposed such an adjustment
in a resolution which was referred to,
the foreign relations committee. He
said he had the support of Chairman
Borah,,of that committee, and Senator
Swanson, of Virginia, the ranking
Democratic member.
Cites Monroe Doctrine
The Robinson proposal was offered
after the Mexican-Nicaraguan ques-
tion had flared up again in both Sen-
ate and House debates, and after it
had been restated at the White House
that President Coolidge's concern
with regard to Mexico was whether'
holdings would be confiscated. As to
Nicaragua, he believes the American
government has been. adhering strict-
ly to the Monroe" doctrine.
In the Senate, the discussion, pre-

Alabama, turned into a fiery religious
debate, while in the House the ad- y

the brunt of a sustained attack on the
policy of the aresident.

Means To Develop Power In
Tropical Colonies
Georges Claude, member of the
French Academy of Science, and fa-
mous for his scientific research, will
lecture at 4:15 this afternoon in
Natural Science auditorium, on some
phase of his engineering research and
discoveries. The inventor of the
Claude Process for Synthetic Am-
inonia, which operates at pressures
one thousand atmospheres, Dr.
Claude also discovered the Claude
liquefaction process for the manu-
facture of oxygen, which furnishes
over half of the oxygen used in this

an experiment before the French
Academy of Science illustrating his
theory to force the tro.pical oceamp to

Would Irrigate Sahara
Dr. Claude is working with Paul
Boucherot, professor in the Haut
Ecole d'electricite, in the interest of
the development of power in remote
tropical colonies of France. He has
maintained that, the irrigation of the
Sahara desert is possible by the gen-
eration of cheap electrical power on
the coasts, with which to pump the
water from wells far under the great
expanse of sandl.
Born in Paris in 1870, Dr. Claude
received his education there, graduat-
ing from the Ecole de Physique at
Chimie Industrielles in 1889. After

of increasing safety in the. distribu-
tion of Alternating currents of high

dustry with the discovery of the fact
that the solubility of acetylene in ace-
tone decreased. greatly the danger of
its use. He also improved the oxy-
acetylene blow-pipe.
During the World war Dr. Claude
j was of great service to his country in
research work which resulted in the
invention of several high explosives
having as their basis liquid oxygen, and
a method for the production of chlor-
ine gas which was used by the French
army. An invention of an apparatus
to detect the location of hostile bat-
teries by sound and a trench cannon
based on the viscosity of tar, were
'among his accomplishments which at
the end of the war prompted the
French government to award. Dr.
Claude with one of the high degrees
in the Legion of Honor.
Ihas Written Books
Among the numerous books which
he has written is "Electricity in Reach
of All" which has been translated into
many languages. Awards for his
scientific research includethe Hebert
prize, presented by the Academy in
1904, in 1098 the Montejon prize, and

electedto the academy in 1924,suc-
e ceeding the late Maurice Leblanc.
The lecture will be in English, and
the public is cordially invited.

of Massachusetts, Ramsdell of Louisi-
ana and Ashurst of Arizona, in turn
assailing him for his repeated attacks
upon the attitude of Roman Catholics
towards Mexico.
In the House, Representative Lo-
zier, Democrat, Missouri, charged
President Coolidge and Secretary Kel-I
logg with using the Bolshevist bug-
bear to cover their imperialistic pro-
gram of conquest.
In offering his resolution, Senator
Robinson said the Senate should ac-
cept responsibility for proposing sub- I
mission of the Mexican controversy to!
arbitration. He further declared that
it was not beyond the bounds of rea-I
sonable possibility that the adminis-
tration would be happy to have an
expression from the Senate. He was
certain, he added, that the attitudel
embodied in the resolution represent-j
ed the thoughtful attitude of four-
fifths of the American people.
"A Doniestic Question" 1
At the White House it was said that
President Coolidge feels that the ques-
tion of mediation of the controversy
between the two Nicaraguan factions
is largely a domestic question. . His
chief concern is for restoration of
tranquility in that country as soon asj
possible. Every step taken thus far
by the administration with regard to
Mexico, in the President's opinion, has
been with the thought in 'mind that
property of American citizens is not
to be confiscated ' on taken without
being paid for.
