DEFENSE UNITY OPPOSED
(Py Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Sept. 24-Based on
cndlitions, income tax collections are
alpected by presidenti Coolidge to be
'as high as last year, when a record
5lO40,000,000 treasury surplus was ac-
cumulated, but he as yet is withhold-
ing his opinion on the total amount of
prospective tax reduction possible.
The President also believes that the
failure of the Geneva naval limitation
conference will have little effect on
the prospective action in the drafting
of a naval cruiser program by Con-
gress.
Furthermore, he feels that the
American's legion proposal for a uni-
fied department of national defense is
unfeasible because of opposition to it
in the Army and Navy and in Con-
gress..
Despite the large income tax returns
Mr. Coolidge has been stressing in his
discussIons of tax revision to members
of Congress that the collection of non-
recurrent items by the t'reasury has
aided materially in producing a large
surplus last year but that these items
cannot be counted upon in the future.
Administration leaders previously
have asserted that they had made a
reliminary estimate of a tax slash
of $300,000,000.'
Even if the Geneva armament pact'
had been consummated, it was pointed
out at the White House, the United
States would still. be faced with the
necessity of building up the cruiser
fleet and the President expects work
to proceed on the cruiser program at
the new session.
The president is said to feel that it
would make little difference whether
the present two. department systems of
administering the Army and Navy Was
continued o a unified department of
national defense was established.
It was shown that both the Army
and Navy were unified in the case of
and if ;they were put together
it would mean two assistant secretar-
ies- to run each' serviCe much as the
present system. The White House
made no mention of an independent
air proposal which was fostered by
Col. William Mitchell, fotmer assistant
Chief of army air service, at the Paris
cAlyVention of tte legion in connecton
with a unified ntitonal defense plan.
The Mssiss4pp river flood control
program, Mr. Coolidge intends to leave
in the hanr t t'he river flood com-
mission an , ittees of the devas-
tated states. T agencies are pre-
paring a rg "which is expected to
be complet 4. 15 and the Presi-
dent will im them to go straight
to Congress with their views for legis-
lation.
BUREAU AR RANGES
STAT ITICS POOL
Organizatin of a pool for exchang-
ing personnet tatistics among Michi-
gan manufacturers was begun this
summer by tie Bureau of Busi-
ness Research of the School of
Business Administration, and has
met with unusual success. By
means* of this service, dealing with
labor turnover in the state of Michi-
gan, manufacturers will be able to
compare their own performances with
other state firms taken as a whole,
with other firms in their own indus-
try, with others- in their own district,
and with the figures representing the
situation in the United States as a
whole.
POPE EXCORIATES
BOXING CON TESTS
(By Associated Pess)
ROME, Sept. 24.-The Tunney-
Dempsey match of last night is looked
upon by Observatore Romano, official
Vatican organ, "as a serious and un-
civilized struggle" which was far more

hurtful in effect upon the general pub-
lic than previous boxing matches.
"Around this manifestation of, a
kind of sport which we have not failed
to criticizeon previous occasions be-
cause we caisider it one of the most
obvious incongruities of modern civi-
lization," the paper says, "the world
press has staged ,a fictitious, morbid
apparatus of exaggerated publicity.
Fantastic figures, record - breaking
crowds, the sums wagered, the special
editions of the newspapers, etc.-here
is the budget of a few minutes' strug-
gle between two men. We deny that
this is an ordinary affair, normal to
the affairs of human r:ogress."

(ly Assowiated Pres)
OGDEN, Utah, Sept. 24.-With the
indorsement of Gov. Al Smith of NewI
York as a candidate for the Demo-!
cratic lpresidential nomination adopled
over opposaiion of Utah delegates,
party workers froin seven Western
states, in conference here, today
turned to dlis ussioni of plans to bring
about unity in the West.
:=;mllon~ed by an invitation from
Fred W. Johnson, of Wyoming to "dis-
cuss big problems of the party," ihe
conference organ izat ion was perfectedi
Friday. ihl committee on the order of
bursiness idiniediately offered a reso-
lit-ion indorsing Governor Smith.
Governor Smith was described in
th'a resolution as "the most available
candidate mentone1 ror the nomina-
tion for p1resident." After stating that i
there was "no (esue to usurp in the
least the duties and prerogatives of
the Democratic organizations of these
states," the conuniltee urged discus-,
sion of the resolution be given pri-
o'ity over other business.
Opposed by Urancisco.
L. H. Francisco of San Diego, Cal.,
self-announced candidate for the
Democratic presidential nomination,
was the first to oppose th'e indorse-
ment of Governor Smith. Tie said he
believed such action would be prema-
ture. Francisco, who was not accepted=
as a delegate, had some difficulty in
gaining recognition.
John H. Moyle, Democratic national
conmitteeman from Utah, objected to
the resolution because he declared it
did not represent the sentiment in his
state.
"Neither are, you from your repre-
sentative states expressing the senti-
ment of your states," Moyle said. 'So
why kid yourselves and try to tell the
East there is a great wave of senti-
ment in the West for Al Smith for
president.
"However, for me to express further
opposition to the proposed resolution
would be out of harmony and inappro-
priate. In time I nay be for him. I be-
lieve he is a progressive and perhaps'
understands the problems of the West
as neither Cleveland nor Wilson un-
derstood them."
Sees Foe in Hughes.
Judge Joshua Greenwood of Salt
Lake City said he doubted that Gover-
nor Smith would carry his own state
if the Republicans nominated Charles
E. Hughes.
The .resolution was then adopte'd
with representatives present from
Idaho, Montana, Colorado, California,
South Dakota, Wyoming and Utah.
Johnson, one of the sponsors of the
resolution, continued his support of
Governor Smith by reiterating his
statement that withdrawal of William
G. McAdoo had left no other candi-
date.
