at the port of Corinto, just as the
first American wounded arrived after
a clash with the rebel forces in the

The situation in Corinto had become
so serious that Col Louis Mason Gu-

McMaster, Author Of Declaration For
New Rates, Expects Solid
Democrat Support
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 7-For the
first time in years the Senate is going
to take up the tariff Monday, but as itj
is without power to initiate revenue
legislation, the move seems destin
to be just an expression of opinion
regardless of the outcome.{
Republicans in the House, where ta-
riff legislation must originate, are
heeding the will of the administration
against any revision now of the con-
troversial import schedules and no
action there this session is in sight
Hlowever, the proposal asking the
Senate for a declaration in favor of
general downward revision of, the ta-
riff rates comes from the Republican
side--Senator McMaster, of South Da-
kota, is its author-- and with the a
ticipated support of an almost solid
Democratic vote its sponsor believes
it will be adopted.
Leaders have given the Meastert
resolution right of way for. Molday
and early action is anticipated, al-I
thou;gh this favored subject of politi.
cal debate is expected to prove a
tem'pting morsel for the orators and
for those anxious to lay the ground-
work for their campaigning next fall.
Expects Support
Senator McMaster declared today he
expected to win considerable support
for the resolution also from the Re-,
publican side of the chamber. While
his resolution would call for a gen-
eral slash in tariff rates, the South
Dakota senator made .t c:ear that he
did not intend any cut in the sched-
ules affecting agriculture.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 7 - The Sen-
ate ended two of its innumerable in-.
vestigations today; the House shoved
another on the waiys, and Frank L.
Smith, of Illinois, fixed a solid shot
across the bows of a third and
brought it to an abrupt halt.
The net result was a certain net
loss of one for the inquiries on the
legislative board, while the status of
another-that of the Reed slush fund?
committee's investigation :nto the fit.
ness of Smith to hold office as a sen-
ator from Illinois-remains in doubt.
The House, working while the Sen-
ate remained in recess, performed the
only legislative tasks of the day by
adopting a resolution authorizing a
special commission to investigate the
S-4 disaster, but the Senate commit-I

Famous Labrador. fssion Doctor Will
Tell Experiences Encountered
In Work Among Fishermen -
Sir Wilfred T. Grenfell, famous La-
brador mission doctor, and creator of
the International Grenfell association,
is coming next Sunday to Ann Arbor
to speak in the morning at the 11
o'clock service in St. Andrew's
Church, and to give an illustrated1
public lecture at 8 o'clock at night in

presmde at the lecture and Dr. Iufj

Dr. Grenfell will give a first hand

fishermen in the icy waters of the
polar current during the season ofc

inhabitants who have to be reached

Dr. Grenfell has attracted hundreds
1of volunteer workers to his hospital

north from all parts o the United
States and Canada, as well as Eng-
land, to assist him. Groups of college
students, particularly, have gone toI

1W"ITH 25-20 WIN
Victors Use S"tnr ing Lineup Without
Sub~stituionu For Duration
Of Entire Battle
(By Associated Phess)
CHICAGO, Jan. 7.--In the fastest
game Northwestern has played this
season, the Purple basketball five
swept over Michigan, Big Ten chai-
pions, 25 to 20, in their inaugural
game at Patton gym tonight,
Going through the entire game
without a substitution, the Northwest-
ern five established themselves as a
force to be reckoned with during the
1928 Conference race by decisively
trouncing the 1927 champions after
trailing them 12 to 10 at the half.
j During the second period, the North-
western five started working like an
oiled machine and rarely let Michigan
even get a try at their goal.
A record-breaking crowd packed
Patton gymnasium for the first Con-
ierence gam-e of the season, as ad-
vance sell-outs indicated that the
struggle would be one of the lead-
ing attractions in the basketball
world. Benny Oosterbaan, twice All-
American end, and Capt. Frank Harri-
gan each scored two field goals 'for
the Wolverines, and the latter add,1
two points by the foul route. Gleish-
man took scoring honors for North-
western by ringing four field goals,
but every man on the team had ,his
share of the spoils. McCoy, Nyland,

large. in addition to these students
three faculty members, to be appoint-
ed by the University Senate, will be
on the board, two alumni members,
appointed by the board of directors of
the Alumni association, the general
secretary of the Alumni association,
one nember of the Board of Regents,
thet financial secretary of the Union,
who is appointed by the Senate coun-
cil of the University, and the dean of
Ftudents. The idea of putting the dean
of students on the board is a new step
incorporated in the plan.
The new plan also provides for one
extra student vice-president, since the
dental college has never had a vice-
president of' its own on the Union
board before.
The financial power of the Union
will be vested in a committee of this
newly arranged board of directors,
with the Regent as an ex-officio
member, the president of the Union
as an ex-officio member, the financial
secretary as an ex-officio member,
and two non-students as the other
members. The financial committee
will in a certain sense displace the
present board of governors, since
theirs will be the privilege of choos-
ing the general manager and he will
he responsible to them.
Will Direct Aethities
The activities of the Union will be
under the direction of an activities
committee appointed from the board
of directors, several members of which
will be students, and which shall have
charge of all activi ties conducted
within the Union building. There will
also b', a house committee composed
partially of students to assist the gen-
eral manager- in the running of the
Union, according to the new plan.
This plan of consolidating the func-
tions of the present board of gov-
ernors and board or directors into one
unit to be called the board of diref-
tors cannot be consummated until the
nembers of the Union., represented
by at least 600 men students approve.
For this purpose a meeting will be
called early in the second semester
The committee which worked out
the change was composed of Are'
Diack, Prof. H. C. Anderson, and Wil-

ciude "Cradle Snatchers," "The Bark- cured by the editorial staff of the year-
er," "Great Catherine," "Merton of book. Complete reviews of the ath-

This will probably take the form of a

It is hoped by this method to allay

have had to be deferred due to the
lack of a quorum at the meetings.
