Say Married Man Now Has 130 Per
Cent Better Position Than Be-
fore War In Exemption
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 3- For the
first time in years, the House ways
and means committee devoted prac-
tically an entire session today to con-
sideration of the 'direct tax on indi-
vidual incomes without a single wit-
ness advocating reduction on the lev-
ies, although a recommendation was
received that the exemtion granted
single persons should be increased
from $1500 to $3500.
During the writing of the last two
revenue laws, the indivaua ncome
rates, which directly affect the pock-
etbooks of millions of taxpayers, were
the center of the days, and today was
in marked contrast with the meet-
ing two years ago when the levies
were being considered
The move for increased exemption
for single persons was sponsored by
the National Federation of Business
and Professional Women's clubs, re-
presented by Lena M. Phillips, of New
York, Martha L. Commole, of East
St. Louis, Illinois, and Cornelia Adair
of Richmond, Va. Their appearance
marked the first time in the memory
of committee clerks that women had
testified before a committee of Con-
gress on revenue matters.
Asks Exemption'
Miss Commole argued that the av-
erage married man or head of a fami-
ly now enjoys a 130 per cent better
position in the matter of exemptions
than during the war, and about 20 per
cent better than before the war, while
the exemption allowed single persons
Na only one-half of what it was before
the war.
"The injustice done single persons
is emphasited by the fact that the
Treasury has each year unnecessarily
collected about $600,000,000 over and
above the government's needs," she
The witness also held that a num-
ber of single persons contribute to
the family's support in some way, and
argued that most of them came with-
in the lower incone levels.
About 2,000,000 single persons pay
an income tax, Miss Phillips testified
and their average tax does not ex-
ceed $2.
"It is obvious that it costs more
to collect this tax than it brings to
the government," she said,
"None of what they pay goes into
the federal treasury and we think
that this should be considered In
bringing about a more just and fair
exemption for this class of taxpay-
Desire Questions
After Miss Commole and Miss
Phillips had completed their testi-
mony, the former asked the commit-
tee if it had any questions. When none
of the members spoke up Miss Phil
lips insisted that, "We' want some
questions," and then Miss Commole
spoke up, to say that if the commit-
tee did not ask any questions she
would feel that no attention would
be paid to ther testimony.
""We assure you that we won't let
you alone if you do that," she warned.
Issaac Frank, Pittsburgh, advoca
ed that all incomes devoted by per-
sons to philanthropic purposes be ex-

empted from taxation.
"At least ittwould be more just,',
he said, "to increase the present;
exemption on charitable donations up
to 50 per cent of the income -instead
of 15 per cent."I

Juniors of the college of architec-
ture will hold a second class election

announced yesterday by Ellis Merry,
'28, chairman of the Student council
elections committee. T'e election will
be held in room 301 of te Architec-
tural building.
The only class officer to be chosen
at this time is the representative of
the class on therJ-Hop comittee, since
the first man elected to this post has
been declared ineligible. 'Therother

Report Revolutionary GeneralFerera
Is Allied To Liberal San dino
in Interior Warfare
(By Associated Press)
MANAGUA, Nicaragua, Nov. 3 e-
ports have been received here from
Honduras that the famous Honduran
revolutionary general, Francisco Fe-
rera, has decided . to aid the former
Liberal, General Sandino, who hasj
been carrying on guerilla activities
in th interior of Nicaragua ever since
the establishment of peace between
the Liberals and Conservatives.
'Several communications from Fe-
rera to Sandino have been Intercept-
iied. The Nicaraguan national guard,
funder command of American marine
officers, will take over the policing
of the important towns of Len on
Nov. 15. National guard patrols have
been sent to the coffee district to pre-,
serve order during the coffee-picking
season when workers flock to the
plantations for the high wages and
good food. Coffee is a most important
crop in Nicaragua and means either
prosperity or failure for the contry.
There Is a General Gregorio Ferre.-
'ra of Honduras who is widely known
as a revolutionary leader there. bhi
Honduran dispatches make no refer-
ence to a general Francesco Ferrera.
General Gregorio Ferrera, who i a j
former minister of war in Honduras,
was last reported in 1926 as starting
a revolution, wi discontented army
ir so rgents
Two more engagements with the
Nicaraguan irregulars have been
fought by the force of American ma-
rines and Nicaraguan national guards-
men, engaged in searching for -the
two missing marinencorps aviaters.
One marine was wounded, being cut
by flying glass from a bomb hurled
by the bandits, while two guardsmen
were killed.
Ever since early October when the
aviators, Lieut. E. A. Thomas and
Sgt. Frank Dowell, engaged in bomb-
ing the followers of the rebel general,
Sandino, crashed to earth, the com-
bined American and Nicaraguan troops
have been engaged in the search.
Combat patrols have scoured the reg-
ion near Chipote, in the department of
Nueva Segovia.
Students or others who have guests
coming for the Navy-Michigan game
are asked to see the rooming com-
mittee of the Union if they desire
1 rooms for the week end. There will be
a member of that committee in the
lobby of the Union at the main desk
from 3 to 5 o'clock tomorrow. i
Any Ann Arbor ,householders who
have extra room available for this
week end are asked to inform the
rooming committee at the Union.

Attorney Is Sent Before Grand
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 3.-The gov-
ernment set about today to bridge the
gaps in the trail of evidence touching
the activities of Burns detectives in
shado\ving jurors in the Fall-Sinclair
oil conspiracy trial, as the grand jury
investigation went forward.
Seeking evidence to directly connect
Harry F. Sinclair and A. Mason Day,
to whom it is charged the Burns oper-
atives reported, District attorneys ob-
tained the statement of one witness
that he was employed by Day to drive
the wealthy oil operator about Wash-
ington during the trial. Day paid $371
in cash only last night for his ser-
Another surprise element to the
whole p'roceeding was furnished when
Mark B. Thompson, of New Mexico,
one of Fall's attorneys, was sent be-
fore the grand jury after a conference
with District Attorneyl Gordon. He
was questioned about a telephone con-
versation he had with Dan R. Jack-
son, of El Paso, Texas, a special as-
sistant to Attorney General Sargent.
Says Talk Was Personal
Jackson said his conversation was
entirely personal, adding that i.t had
nothing to do with the oil case.
Thompson declined to discuss it, ex-
plaining that he could not divulge
what he had told in the grand jury
This angle of the investigation was
opened up when agents of the district
attorney found several reports of the
movements of another assistant to the
attorney general in the papers found
by federal agents in the raid of the
headquarters of the Burns men at the
Wardman Park hotel last Wednesday.
Inquiries were made to ascertain
why a detective should have been
trailing an assistant to the attorney
general and while they were in prog-
ress it was disclosed that Thompson
and Jackson had been in communica-
tion with each other.
Edward J. Kidwell, the juror ac-
cused of having talked too freely be-
fore Justice Siddons ordered 'a mis-
trial in the oil case yesterday, was
around the court house much of the
time during the day. He was ac-
companied by his father, Edward J.
Kidwell, sr., a barber, who also may
be asked to go before the grand jury
Both of the 'Kidwell's were excused
in the afternoon, the young juror be-
ing instructed to return to his place
of business and hold himself in readi-
ness at any time he might be request-
ed to return to the court for further
questioning before the grand jury.
Show Connection
Statements designed to show aecon-
nection with Day and Sinclair were
furnished by Eugene Blaudet, who told
Neil Burkinshaw, assistant district at-
torney conducting the grand jury in-
vestigation, that Day had implored
him to drive Sinclair about Washing-
ton in a high-priced automobile.
The record as it stands in the dis-
trict attorney's office is that Day first
communicated with Frank T. Hurley,
agent here for the Lincoln Motor com-
pany, in an effort to hire several auto-
mobiles for an indeterminate time. He
was referred to Blaudet, who said he
went to the Mayflower hotel where
Sinclair had his headquarters during
the trial, and was directed to a room
in which there w"1~e sevral men.
He agreed to hire himslf and car
for $27 a day.
Blauvet told Burkinshaw that he
drove Sinclair to and from the court
and to the Metropolitan club and va-
rious other places; that hie did not go
to the home of Donald Woodward,
wealthy Washington merchant, where
it is charged Day got his reports from
the detectives.
On at least one occasion, Blauvet
said, he changed the license on his
automobile, but added that no one
had told him to do this; that he had
done this because he had had a pri-
vate tag on the car and was apprehen-
sive that he might get into difficulties
with authorities.

The rail to Woodward's home was
followed by means of Lincoln automo-
biles. Reports. reached the author-
ities that on several occasions the
same car bearing different license tags
on almost each occasion had been seen
