(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 22.-The new
McNary-Haugen bill was approved to-
day by the Senate agriculture commit-
tee, the action clearing the way for
he renewal in both houses of Con-
gress of a perrenial battle over farm
relief legislation.

Anthropological Institutions Delve
Into Evidences Of Ancient !
European Life
Dr. George Grant MacCurdy, direc-
tor of the American School of Pre-
historic Research, will deliver a lec-
ture on the subject "Looking Back-1
ward Witth the Prehistorian" at 4:15
tomorrow afternoon in Natural Sci-
ence auditorium. Dr. MacCurdy is
one of the foremost lecturers on an-
thropology in the country.
The American School of Prehistoric
Research is one of the five schools
affiliated with the Archaeological In-
stitute of America. The other four
schools are the School of Classical
Studies at Athens, the American
Academy at Rome, the School of Ori-
ental Research, and the School of
American Research at Santa Fe. The
School of Prehistoric Research is now
in its sixth year. Three months each
year are spent in the field visiting and
studying the various localities asso-
ciated with the evidence of prehis-
toric European human life.
Gives Opportunity To Inspect Sites
The advantages of the method em-
ployed by the school are that it gives
an opportunity to inspect and actually
investigate various relic-bearing de-
posits; it gives the opportunity of
visiting well-known sites and locali-
ties at many of which are local mu-
seums; it allows the student to visit
the great museums and to see and
handle famous specimens, such as the
pithecanthropus erectus; it gives the
opportunity to see the original speci-
mens, either in the cave themselves or
in museums, of the famous cave-art of
paleolithic times; it gives the student
a chance to meet and hold conferences
with famous foreign specialists in the
work. It is a school primarily for
professional students, but others are
often taken care of on the trip.
The result of the work of the school
is that it brings about a closer rela-
tion between American and European
archaeologists, making possible a
tabloid study of the best localities of
European archaeology through the
guidance of a specialist, and that it
educates the American people in the
realness and matter-of-fact attitude
of Europeans toward evidences of hu-
man developments in Europe.
Lecture Will Review
The lecture will be in the nature
of a review of the events, accomplish-
ment and fin'dings of the 1926 field
season. It will be of great interest,
involving as it does a contact with the
most advanced research in this sub-
ject in Europe. During the season
of 1925 the field party had conferences
with 42 different foreign specialists,
they visited the countries of England,
France, Spain, Switzerland, Germany
and Belgium, they visited 44 museums
and 77 prehistoric sites, many of
which are .national monuments. They
also during this time excavated Castel
Merle in the Dordogne, through ar-
rangements with the Archaeological
society of Washington, who hold a
lease on the site.
During the season of 1926 the trip)
was extended and included many more
activities than in the previous season.
Therefore it is expected that Dr. Mac-
Curdy will have many new things to
relate and will give a new slant to the
subject of prehistoric study. In ad-
dition to holding the position of direc-
tor of this school Dr. MacCurdy is a
research associate at Yale with the
rank of professor and is curator of
all the anthropological collections
there. He has written many books on
the subject of anthropology and his 1
most recent article appeared in "Art
and Archaeology" vol. 21, in February,
1926. The public is cordially ivited
to attend the lecture.

Special sections have been reserved
in Yost field house for the Varsity
band an "M" men, announced H. A.
Tillotson, business manager of the
University athletic association.
Besides the Minnesota game tomor-
row night, in all following home
games this section will be reserved, as.
has been the custom for the past sev-
eral years. The Varsity band men arel
requested to wear their uniforms and
the "M" men must wear their Varsity
hats, Tillotson said.

The measure which would levy an
eqpalization fee on basic crops with
the view of controlling the surpluses
was reported recently by the House
agriculture committee, three of whose
members opposed to it filed a minority
report today setting forth their views.
The proposal sponsored jointly by
Chairman McNary and Haugen of the
two committees, is now on both the
House and Senate calendars with op-
ponents determined to produce a vote
on it before March 4 adjournment,
and opponents resorting mainly to the
Curtis-Crisp bill as the weapon to de-
feat the equalization provision.
Managers of each bill planned to
press them forward next week with
sponsors of the McNary-Haugen bill
predicting that modifications in the
measure will overcome the opposition
that resulted in its defeat in both the
,Senate and the House at the last ses-

Chairman McNary declared in a
statement that his bill provides "a
way for producers of the basic agri-
culture crops to adjust supply to de-
mand in their most profitable markets
to their best interests." While the
minority report of the House commit-
tee members-Representative Tincher,
of Kansas, Pratt, of New York, and,
Fort, of New Jersey, Republicans,
branded the measure as "more ob-
jectionable and certainly more uncon-
stitutional than the orignial proposal
presented at the last session."'
The action of the Senate committee
with two absentees was unanimous
and without amendment. Under the
measure a Federal revolving fund oft
$250,000,000 would be apportioned to,
be administered by a Federal farm
borad for the export of tne surplus
of cotton, wheat, corn, swine, and1
rice. This would. be repaid by an
equalization fee collected against the
crops. Limitation of outstanding
loans on any one commodity at one
time would be fixed at $25,000,000.
While the Senate committee was
acting the House agriculture commit-
tee approved the Tincher bill to en-,
able members of the farmers co-
operative association to obtain seats
on grain exchanges..

iMoore And Huddleston Seek Confidence Considered Most Popular Violinist;

From Secretary Of State
On Situation
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 22.-Activities
here today with regard to the Nic-1
araguan situation were contined in
the House where ktwo measures deal
ing with America's policy toward that
country were introduced by Rep.
Moore, Democrat, of Virginia. On the
floor Representative Huddleston, Dem-
ocrat, of Alabama, reviewed his criti-
cism of the administration and de-
manded that Secretary Kellogg take
Congress into his confidence.
As for the controversy with Mexico
over application of the new oil and
land regulation there were no de-
velopments here.'
In one of the resolutions offered by,
Mr. Moore who has been outspoken
on his criticisms of the Washington
government's policy toward Nicara-
gua the House was asked to go on
record in interpreting the Monroe
Doctrine as opposed to intervention
by the United States in Latin Ameri-
can republics, except when their in-
dependence was threatened.
The other would call for informa-
tion from Secretary Kellogg on vari-
ous aspects of the Nicaraguan situa-
tion, and asks whether the Washing-
ton government was responsible for
designation of Adolfo Diaz as presi-
dent of the republic.
Both of the Moore resolutiorry were
referred to the foreign affairs com-
mittee of which the Virginian is a

Fritz Kreisler, famous violinist, will
appear here Monday night, Jan. 31, in
Hill auditorium. Mr. Kreisler has
played in this city many times be-
fore, and officials of the School of
Music consider him one of the finest
violinists who has ever appeared here.
His concert will be given as the fifth
number 6f the 48th annual Choral
Union concert series.
Mr. Kreisler was born in Vienna, int
1875, and at the age of ten won the
first prize and the gold medal at the
Vienna Conservatory of music. Two
years later he won the Premier Prix
de Rome at the Paris conservatory;
and toured America with Moriz Rosen-!
thal, pianist, in 1888-89. After his
American concert tour he returned}
to Austria to complete his studies in
the Gymnasium. In 1899 he made an-
other American tour, after playing his
debut in Berlin, and achieved remark-
able success. Two years later he ap-!
peared in London and since then has
played in all the leading concert cities
of Europe and many times in tours of
the United States.
He owns one of the most valuable
violins in the world, the Josef Guarne-
rius del Gesu of 1737. At the begins3
ning of the war he enlisted in the
Austrian army and served at the front
as captain in 1914-15. He was wound-
ed there and when discharged resum-
ed his playing, making a tour of the1
United States in 1916-18. He has alsoi
written a book, "Four Weeks in the

According to officers of the School
of Music Mr. Kreisler is the most
popular violinist on the stage today,

Scientific Aims lere Not Favored By
Recent 13xe(itionls, According
To Visiting Lecturer
Describing the general geographical
characteristics in a detailed summary
of present day knowledge of the vast
'frozen regions ,bordering the South
Pole, Sir Douglas Mawson, F. R. S.,
distinguished geographer, geologist,
and explorer, spoke last night in Hill
auditorium on the subject "Racing
With Death in Antarctic Blizzards."
"As there has been no exploration
in the Antarctic before 1898," Sir
Douglas said, "all attempts in this di-
rection have been comparatively re-
cent, and there is still mulch that re-
mains unknown of this boundless ice-
covered continent, whose area is es-
timated at being twice that of the
United States. What explorations that
has been done, was done so largely
with the intent of being the first to
reach the South Pole, subordinating
the scientific aspect of a more -com-
plete knowledge of the area."
Should Interest American People
Sir Douglas pointed out that the
Australian expedition, along with
those of Scott, Shackleon and Anund-
sen ought to have particular interest
for the American people because of
the geographical influence exerted by
these regions on the North'American
continent. He stated that it would
be largely a matter of time and public
interest before the South Polar re-
gions will have been explored and
mapped, as is the greater part of the
North Polar regions. As an example
of the practical value of this work
of scientific discovery, Sir Douglas
cited the meteorological results ob-
tained by the recent Hobbs Greenland
Expedition, which is making an in-
tensive study of wind conditions and
temperatures the year around. "This
data," hie said, "has proved invalu-
able in verifying the present theory
of the wind systems."
Tells Story Of Dog Journey
In the course of his lecture Sir
Douglas related the story of his 1,000
mile dog sledge journey over King
George V Land. It was on this journey
that his two companions, Dr. X. Mertz
and Lient B. F. Ninnis met their
death. "It was fortunate that I hap-
pened to be sitting on my sledge at
the time," he said, "for it was prob-
ably the weight of Ninnis on the ice
which caused it to break under him
and carry him. to his death in a
treacherously covered crevasse. Dr.
Mertz and I let ourselves down 1,000
feet into the crevasse finding two or
three of the dead dogs, but no tracI
of Ninnis and his sledge in that black
bottomless hole. After Dr. Mertz had
passed away I set out again, pulling
my own sledge in the continually
driving snow." In the course of the
100 mile journey back to the base
camp Sir Douglas himself fell into
three crevasses, but the sledge held
at the top and he found himself dang-
ling at the end of a rope, and without
the strength to pull himself up. "I
remember the first one," he said. "I
found myself at the end of the rope
trying to decide whether it was worth
the effort to climb up. When I got to
the top, finally, the ledge broke off
