Only One Section Of Baumes La~w Will
Come Under Discussion Through
Common Agreement
Michigan men's first intercollegiate
forensic contest of the year will tak
place at 8 o'clock tonight in Hill and-'
itorium when the University debate
team meets Minnesota.
The Minnesota team will have the
affirmative of the proposition "Re-
solved, that the principles of thE
Baumes law of New York should be
enacted into law in the other states."

fers generally to the 'entire code of
Baumes laws, the debate tonight will
center upon one section agreed upon
by both teams. This act provides in
substance that it shall be mandatory
upon the judge to sentence the crimi-
nal to life imprisonment who has
been found guilty of four felonies.

rive in Ann Arbor this morning, is
composed of Harold Goldengerg, Jos-

than ten years since the two schools
met-in a forensic contest.
While in Ann Arbor the visiting
team will stay at the Union. A lunch-

honor after the debate.

(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 7---Although
denied the oath of ofitce, pending a
further hearing, Senator-elect Frank
L. Smith, of Illinois, gained some
advantages today in the Senate.
First hi opponents abandoned
their efforts to bar him without a
hearing and then of their own init-
iative obtained unanimous consent for
him to plead his o wn case on the
S'enate floor before a final vote on ex-
clusion is taken after a hearing be-
fore the special campaign funds com-
nittee, headed by Senator Reed, Dem-
crat, Missouri.
The Senate twice voted against giv-
ing Smith the oath, the first time
50 to 32 and the second [5 to 29. Then
it fook up the case of Senator-elect
W illium S. Vare, of Pennsylvhnia,

On 2, third and inml roll call, the
Senate adopted, 53 to 2S, a resolution
of Senator Norris, Republican, Ne-
braska, vigorously condemning
Smith's acceptance of contribution to
his nrimary canaign fund from the
out lclas of publ c rervice rorporla-
tions which commonly had business
before the Illinois comnmerce cominmis-
sion of which he then was chair-
man. This resolution specifically re-
ferred the case to the campaign funds
committee, and its adoption removed
any doubt as to the Senate's view that
that body is legally constituted and
has never ceased to function.
'Ihere was no word of protest from
the friends of Smith against reference

expected to bring strenuous opposi-

Choice Made After Deadlock Lasting
Hours; Detroit Holds Third
Place In All Balloting
(By Associate4 Press)
WAS'HINGTON, Dec. 7,-The 1928
Republican national convention will
be held in Kansas City, beginning on
Tuesday, June 12.
Deadlocked for hours, the national
committee made the choice here today
on the twentieth ballot. Seven cities
figured in the voting, but for the most
part it was a fight between San Fran-
cisco and Kansas City.
At the start the Pacific Coast city,
which had announced it was ready
to offer $250,000 to defray expenses
of the convention, was in the lead and
on the fourth ballot was within four
votes of a majority.
On the ninth ballot, Kansas City,
supported, among others, by Chair-
man Butler of the national committee,
forged into the lead, and doggedly
held out.
At one time, Detroit, third througn-
out, but well behind the leaders,
showed a spurt, but it did not get
far. Other cities receiving vote, at
no time enough to put them in the
race as serious contenders, were Chi-
cago, Cleveland, Philadelphia and San
Compromise Sought r.
Several times during the tedious
balloting, the committeemen and wo-
men-102 of them had the say as to
where the next Republican president-
ial candidate is to be nominated -
sought unsuccessfully to work out a
compromise, but it was not until a
few-committee members from West-
ern States swung away from San
Francisco that the issue was settled.
Although the loing day of bftlloting
gave the committee members little
time to think about anything else,
they did digress long enough to pon-
der over President Coolidge's ampli-
fication of his Black Hills "do not
choose" statement. A great share of
them expressed conviction that the
president's declaration that he was
"eliminated" from consideration next
year would be taken at its face val-
