Westerners Frame Plans for Oppos-

To Control New Senate


(By Associa
CHICAGO, Nov. 30.-Congress in
1822, encouraging a water route be-
tween the great lakes and the gulf of
Mexico, authorized the joining of the
waters of the Illinois river and Lake

Chicago began diverting water into
its drainage canal in 1900, performing
the now-famous -engineering feats of
making the Chicago river run back-
ward from Lake Michigan to carry,
water from the lake into the drainage
canal and the Illinois river, which
runs southwestward into the Missis-
sippi. The diversion was begun as an
aid to disposal of Chicago sewage, a
purpose which it still serves, although
an incidental one, its champions claim,

(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 1-While rath-
er late in developing, the usual bien-
nial hubbub about Senate organiza-
tion is in full swing with the situation
admittedly full of possibilities.
Western Republican Independents
have the power to upset the careful-
ly laid organization plans of the Re-
publican ol guard by virtue of tIhe
close division between the major par-
ties. Whether they will use it de-
pends largely upon developments to--
morrow at the party conference for
the selection of party candidates for
Senate offices.
As the situation was assesscd to
night, it appeared as though the Re-
publican headers were a bit appre-
hensive that their plans might go aw-
ry and that Democratic leaders were
wondering whether they would be
forced to be organized in the Senate
against their wishes in view of the
slight Republican majority.
At a conference today, which Sen-
ators Borah, of Idaho, and Norris, of
Nebraska, did not attend, the Repub-
lican Independents inder theleader-
ship of Senator LaFollette, Wisconsin,I
definitely approved a program to be
presentedl to the party leaders.
Assignments On Program
Committee assignents as well as
opposition to some of the candidates
for Senate offices were included in
this program, which was presented
to the Old Guard leaders. There was
a decision likewise about demanding
a dat for a vote on farm relief le-
gislation, but there was no definite
agreement on this.
The Independents are divided
among themselves on the proposition
of opposing certain of the Senate offi-
cers, some holding that committee
assignments were far more vital than
the selection of subordinate office
of the Senate, such as secretary and
sergeant at arms, and that the main
issues should not be subordinated to
such contests.
Some of the Independents are per-
sonally opposed to all of the candi-
dates on the Republican slate and
should even a few of them vote the
party ticket, Democratic candidates
would be elected. Whether there is to
be such a vote still remains to be

While these controversies went for

To Use Proceeds For Christmas Party
For Children Confined In
University Hospital
With more than $300 collected on
the first day of their campaign for
funds on the campus, the Galens, hon-
orary medical society, will continue
the tag day throughout today for the
henefit of a Christmas party for child-
ren confined in the University hospital.
The $300 does not include the group
donations made by many fraternities
and sororities on the campus, which
probably bring the total of the first
day's efforts'close to $500, according
to Glenn Carmichael, '28M, chairman
of the drive from Galens. This amount
is approximately half of the total of
$1,000 which the society hoped to
