Began Rivalry In 1881
Michigan has never defeated a Har-
vard team in football. Rivalry be-'
tween the two institutions was begun
as early as th~e fall of 1881, when the
eastern school triumphed, 4-0. Meet-
ing again in 1883, John Harvard again
emerged victorious, 3-0. Following
that game, football relations between
the two were broken for 11 years.In
the 1895 game the score of the first
game was duplicated.

(By Associated Press)
WAS'HINGTON, Dec. 6--Calling up-
on the people to continue a "stern
self-denial" in national expenditures,
President Coolidge laid before Con-
gress today a moderate program of
erxpansion for its defenses and nat-
ural resources.
In a message which touched upon
virtually all of the legislative' issues
which have aroused interest and spec-
ulation, the President presented
views differing only in minor details
from those he has previously out-
lined on the major problemns of farm
relief, taxation, flood control, foreign
relations and the state of the army
and navy.
Informing Congress that le had not
changed in his opposition of the Me-
Nary-Haugen farm relief bill with its
equalization fee, lie recoimmended in-
stead a federal farm loan board with
a revolving fund to build up coopera-
tive marketing and aid in the dispo-
sition of crop surpluses. On tax re-
vision, he stood by the Treasury's
The Navy, he said, should be ex-
panded by the addition of cruisers,
submarines, airplanes and carriers a
well as the development of the mer-
chant marine as a second line of de-
He recommended that flood-control
be confined this year to the lower
Mississippi River, with provision for
adequatesdikes, energency spillways
and aides to navigation; cationio
that this problem should be met by
viewing it as a separate, iational
question without atteniipts to link it
with other lroposals for river cOin-
trol and expansion; and suggested
that the peole enjoying the benefits
of landkreclaimed by government-
built dikes share a partial, although
perhaps lighter, burden of its ex-
Warns Against Debt
Contending that the country had at-
taned a prosperity never exceeded
and therefore was in a position to en-
joy some of the benefits which re-
sult from economy, Mr Coolidge pre-
sented the spectre, nevertheless, of
a large national debt and warned
that until revenues now directed to-
wards its reduction could be diverted
to internal improvements and nation-
al development, the people must con-
tinue to sacrifice and the government
must continue to economize.
"The Secretary of the Treasury,"
the President said, "has recommended
a measure which would give us a
better balanced system of taxation
and without oppression produce suf-
ficient revenue. It has my complete
The President reiterated his belief
in a high protective tariff, declaring
that any reduction of the levies would
work a hardship on industry and ag-
riculture alike.
Although but one paragraph of his'
message was devoted to prohibition,
the President emphasized the need
for both the people and public offic-
ials to "observe the sanctions of this
constitutional provision and it, re-
sulting laws." Recalling that Congress
and the states "with one or two nota-
ble exceptions" have passed adequate
laws for enforcement of the eigh-
teenth amendment, Mr. Coolidge de-
I clared that "The federal authoritieq
proposed to dischetg'qe their obligation
for enforcement to the full extent of
their ability."
) Discusses Foreign Policy
Although the message was devoted
almost exclusivelyeto domestic affairs,
the President did inform Congress
again that American intervention in
foreign lands was merely for the pu-
pose of protecting the lives and prop-
erty of this country's nationals. Hle
defended the administration's policy
in China and Nicaragua and express-

ed the belief that the controversy with
Mexico over oil and land laws, by "a

committee, who called on him at the]
White House. The immediate effect
was to electrify a meeting which had
been expected only to produce a po-
lite exchange of generalities.
Mr. Coolidge's words fell with par-
ticular force upon those of his friends
who had maintained that despite "I,
do not choose to run" statement, he
had by no means eliminated himself
and would be drafted in 1928.
It took but a few works for the
IPresident to dispose of his intentions
toward a renomination.
Only a few of the committeemen,
who are in Washington to select next
year's convention city, had any ink-
ling that such a declaration was com-,
ing. It had been generally understood
amongst them that they might expect
from the President no elaboration of,
his statement of August 2, but would
listen only to a general discussion of
party issues.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 6 - Assured
that President Coolidge had no pref-
erence, delegations representing a
number of cities seeking the next Re-
hublican convention fought hard to-
day to retain the support of national
committee members they had receiv-
