Three Amendmeis Added To easure
Fought By Republican Leaders;
Bill Called Radical
(By Associated Press)
WASIHINGTON, Dec. 15.-With a
Democratic-Republican coalition hold-
ing the whip hand, the House early to-
night passed the tax bill with three
major amendlments which were vig-
orously opposed by the Republican
On a final showdown, however,
only 24 Republicans were willing to
go on record against the measure
after exhausting every parlimentary
means to eliminate the three contest-
ed amendments, among them one for
repeal of the sales tax on automobiles.
The vote on the passage was 366 to 24.
Sent to the Senate within 10 days of
the time Congress convened, the bill
as approved calls for an estimated an-
nual cut of $289,770,000 in treasury
revenue compared with the $232,735,-
000 reduction proposed to the ways
and means committee which whipped
the measure into shape before the
start of the session. Its total is $64,-
770,000 above the $225,000,000 suggest-
ed by Secretary Mellon as a safe max-
imum, and many of its provisions dif-
fered radically from treasury recom-
Adopt Amendments.
The three amendments which Re-
publican leaders sought to knock out
of the bill at the last minute had been
adopted earlier in the week under
rules which prevented roll-call votes.
Two, relating to corporations, were
sponsored by Representative Garner,
of Texas, ranking Democrat on the
ways ind means committee, Xhile that
calling for repeal of the automobile
sales tax levy was championed by Rep-
resentative MacLaughlin, of Michigan,
a Republican on the committee.
Just before the bill came up for final
passage, however, a rll callc were in
order, and when the House, by record
votes, refused to reverse itself on the
three changes, the Republican lead-
ers made a move to send the bill back
to the committee. But a majority of
the membership wanted it passed, and
the motion to recommit, offered by
Representative Bacharach, Republican,
New Jersey, was rejected by a wide
Many Suported Proposal.
The roll, call vote today on the Mc-
Laughlin amendment to repeal sales
tax on automobiles was 245 to 151
with Democrats and about a score of
Republicans supporting the proposal.
The bill as it reached the House from
the ways and means committee, pro-
posed a reduction of the present three
per cent to one and one-half per cent.
One amendment proposed a bracket
of lower tax rates for corporations
with net taxable incomes of $15,000
or less instead of the flat rate of 11
and % per cet recommended by the
committee, whil: the other would re-
quire corporations and their subsi-
diaries to file separate instead of affil-
iated returns.
The House by a vote of 212 to 181
sustained the lower rate proposal and
then adopted 210 to 187 the joint tax
return plan.
The last minute move of Bacharach,
to send the bill back to the ways and
means committee instead of passing i
along to the Senate would have un-
done all the werk the House had ac-
complished on the bill and the motio
was defeated 301 to 93. Chairman
Green was included among those op-

posing this move.

The various publications, certifi-
cates, facsimiles, and other commun-
ications from your America First
Foundation reached me today.
I believe that America today needs
hard, quiet, creative work rather than
flamboyant advertising of the cheap-
est sort. There is' no shorthand meth-I
od of attaining true patrio;sm by
paying $10 and joining any associa-
tion or foundation.
It seems to me personally that it
is harder on Washington, Lincoln,
and Franklin to use their words for
advertising your plan that it is to
write books about ihem which tend
to show that they were normal hu-
man beings as well as divint ly in-
spired. You object to the latter pro--
cedure and are urging all people who
want tq pay you $10 to support the
former. That kind of 100 per cent
Americanism makes no appeal to me.
My chief detailed regret in looki N
over the literature is that Washing.-
ton's Farewell Message and not
yours was enclosed.

Total Of 305 Probations And Warning':,

Duirhig Last Year
More students y ere placed on

year ago it was 269.
The number of probations inereased
this year over December of last year
by 61, being 68 in 1926 and 129 thTis

what lessened, however,- by the fact

While showing flashes of real pow-
cr, Mlather's team at times lasped in-
to the purely nediere, not a one of
the Wolverines but what was a victim
of Panther wile. The first half found
the two teams fighting on practically
j even terms, the period ending 25-23
in favor of the visitors after Michigan
had assumed a 17-8 lead.
' P t sburgh Scores First.
Within five minutes after the second
session began, Pittsburgh took a lead
which she never relinquished, the
score standing 49-35 at one time.
While this half found Pittsburgh con-
' tinning with a great brand of ball, it
saw the Wolverines on a decided de-
cline. Their shooting was attracious
at times as they seemed utterly un-
able to find the hoop.
1 The Panthers, on the other hand
missed few opportunities. They work-
ed throughm tme Wolverine defense
- without much difficulty-in fact they
, made the Michigan "stonewall" look
like pap r mache. Even with all of
their shots missed, the Wolverines
counted often enough to win under
ordinary circumstances.
Exceptionally Large Score
Circumstances, on the other hand,
t were not ordinary. The Panthers ran
- up a score almost unheard of in
Wolverine history, no matter what the
t sport may be, as far back as sport
- records go. Another interesting oc-
currence was that a school was able
e to use an entirely new team effective-
s ly against Michigan.
Outstanding among the warriors
who threw up the Pittsburgh smoke
screen were Wroblewski and Hyatt.
Wroblewski proved himself a marvel-
g Ous shot while IHyatt's floor work
9 bordered on miraculous. He fulfilled
all expectations, being an all-Ameri-
e can prep school athlete. Captain Reed
n was the star of the invaders, with a
delicate eye to say the least. Pitts-
~ burgh had a great team; which Michi-
~ gan, suffering lapses at times, could
c not cope with.

Lindbergh's plans are not yet settled.
He does not even know how long he

emphatically declares-he will go by

been received from several Central
American countries, including Nicar-

be taken under advisement before a
decision is reached.
