Senate To Seek Dismissai Of Writ By
Which Stewart Obtained His
Release Saturday
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 6- Congress
broke out today in a veritable rash
of legislation. House and Senate had
their lawmaking sleeves rolled up
and did a clean job on the calendarj
that sent bills through the legisla-
tive mills by the score -at breath-
taking speed.
One batch of 17 bridge bills passed
the House on a single xotion. They
would have gone through the Sen-
ate the same way except for the ob-
jection of Robinson, Arkansas, Dem
.ocratic leader, that it was a "dan-
gerous method of legislation."
The subjects covered ranged over
a wide field, but a large percentage
of the bills, of course, were small
matters like corrections of military
records for pension purposes, minor
claims against the government and
the bridge authorizations applying to
many states.
Only bills unobjected to could
come up in either house and the
highly practical kind of politics in-
volved in these local methods was
evinced by the numbers of house
members who stuck to their seats
throughout the day. -
One bill passed by the Senate
would add just $100,000,000 to the
amount available for public build-
ings. There was almost no talk
about it. Another meant more than
$6,000,000 for army housing, but it
was .)routine in character and pro-
voked .only a request for an explana-
tion. Late in the,-day a -bill to give
the radio commission another year's.

ar hitch.
Bhnton Makes Objections
In the House Blanton, of Texas,

front on the Democsatlc side anti his
objections blocked immediate. consid-
eration of a. number of measures.,
King, Democrat, Utah, rendered sim-
ilar service in the' Senate at times.,
But for the most part, the ponderous
machinery- of legislation whirled
along without a squeak in compari-
son. to the weeks of political oratory
just behind, and the shouting and'
clamor with which Congress sore-
times acts on matters seemingly' of
little more importance than dozens
of the bills put through today.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 6 - The ad-
W ministration was caled upon today
by Chairman Borah of the Senate
foreign relations committee to make
a full report on the use of marines
in Nicaragua, but action on his reso-
lution was blo6ked by Senator Short-
ridge, Repuulican, California.
This move, which followed several
speeches of protest made in the Sen-
ate last week against the adminis-
tration policy in Nicaragua, is the
first of its kind to be initiated by
leaders of the foreign relations con-
mittee since the Pan-American con-
ference opened in Havana. -A tem-
porary truce on proposed investiga-
Ctns of Nicaragua had been in ef-
fect. during the parley.
Senator Borah was followed on the
floor by Senator King, Democrat, of
Utah, who introduced a resolution
calling upon the Senate judiciary
committee to determine if the Presi-
dent had authority to conduct "bel-
I igerent operations in foreign 'coun-
tries" when there had been no de-.
claration of war or other grant of
power by Congress.
The Idaho. senator's resolution will
come before the Senate tomorrow
under the rules, while that of Sena-

tor' King Was referred to the judici-
ary committee.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 6 - With
George W. Wickersham, attorney-
general in the Taft administration,
as its counsel, the Senate tomorrow
will seek dismissal of the writ of
habeas corpus by which Robert W.

tained his release Saturday from

Expressing surprise at the notice
from the University of Wisconsin
that the board of visitors of that
university had decided not to allow
1,700 of the present freshman class
to return to school next fall, Presi-
dent Clarence Cook Little yesterday
declared that the policy involves
possible severe criticism of the uni-
versity officials and administration at
that school.
"Unless Glenn Frank has educated
the people of the State of Wisconsin
up to the point of accepting such a
move he is likely to encounter seri-
ous trouble," President Little de-
clared. "As an educational step the
action is somewhat of an experiment,
but whether good or bad the public
voice of any state is likely to look

'turer, and later entered the suffrage
movement, being one of its most gift-
ed speakers and edilor of a suffrage

Letters received from Liberty, re-
cently granted permission to the
Gargoyle to issue, as the February
number, a parody on the "The Week-

The new number will, carry out the
general features of the well-known

new number.
The letter came to Frederick W.
Ziv, '27L, managing editor of the

The move as taken by the Wiscon-

"Hell Bent Fer Heaven" And "Sun-
Up" Will Be Given In Mimes
Starting Tomorrow
Play Production will present as
its second work of the season the
two plays "Sun-Up" and "Hell Bent
Fer Heaven" in repertory style .for
four days beginning tomorrow at the
Mimes theater. The dramas have
been tried out earlier in the year in
the laboratory theater in University
hall, and have been selected from
several others for production.
"Sun-Up," a drama of the North .
Carolina mountain regions, is the
work of Lulu Vollmer, and has en-
joyed considerable success in New
York. The scene for "Hell Bent Fer
Heaven" is laid in the mountain re-
gion of Kentucky, and th sets for
the one production will be used for
the other, thus making it possible
to use the repertory idea, something
novel in campus dramatics. The lat-
ter work was written by Hatcher
Hughes, and was given the Pulitzer
prize. It also enjoyed successful me-
tropolitan presentation.
The casts for both plays were pick-
ed from all-campus' tryouts, ad were
developed through the work in the
play production laboratory theater
under the direction of Earl Fleisch-
man of the speech department. The
settings were designed by the class-
es in stagecraft under the direction
of Richard Woelhalf, 'Grad. The,
casts irclude Samuel Bonell, '28,
Henry Grinell, '28, Marjorie Chavel-
ele, '28, and Wolter Power, '28.
Charles Breckhauser is acting as the
stage manager for both productions.
Music will be furnished by students
of the University School of Music.

School of Education has tendered his
resignation from 'that post to take

have accepted the resignation, a'c-

recently by the Dean's office. In ef-

-When Dean Whitney came to the

was ill and died in 1907 after long
absences from his classes which

From this time, Dean Whitney
headed the department and has
watched it grow from a one-man in-

Vincente Blasco Ibanez, the famous
Spanish novelist who died la'st week,
did his greatest work before he was
famous, Nelson W. Eddy of the
romance languages department and in-
structor in the Ibanez courses told a
Daily reporter in an interview late
Ibanez, Eddy declared, presented a
queer complexity of quackery and sin-
cerity. His later works were all of a
popular nature, and sold widely.
This popularity was particularly to
be noted in America where transla-
tions of his volumes had a large sale.
In his later years, the Spanish writ-
er devoted much of his time to at-
tacking some of the more antiquated
customs and characteristics of his
country. The King, liquor, church,
bull fights, anid many other things
were attacked in his books. Obviously
Rockford Players Will Give Two Plays
By Bernard Shaw And Sir James
Barrie Saturday


Presentation of Mrs. Richard Mans-
field in one of her best characteriza-
tions and the return of one of the
nost popular plays ever given by a
campus company will feature the next
change of program for the Rockford
Players. Kenneth Webb's comedy of
American life, "One of the Family,"
wrhich began its run last night at the
Whitney theater, will close Friday
night, and will be succeeded by the
louble bill, Bernard Shaw's "Great
Catherine" and Sir James M. Barrie's
'The Old, Lady Shows Her Medals."
This production has been substitut-
ed for "The Enchanted April" as was
previously announced, and it will fea-
ture Mrs. Richard Mansfield in the
role of Mrs. Dowey, the little char-
woman, in the Barrie play, and Amy
Loomis, former leading lady of the
company, in the title role of Catherine
I1 of Russia in "Great Catherine."
This will mark Amy Loomis' only
appearance with the company this
season, and will present her Sin the
role she originally crea'ted two years
ago. At that time she was director
of the Junior irls' Play, "Castles In
Spain." The play. itself holds a record
run for Ann Arbor of 33 performances,
performed originally at the Mimes
theater, and afterwards given a state-
wide tear. Comedy Club sponsored
the origidal production, several mem-
bers of the present Rockford Players
then being members of that organiza-
Becaus3 of Miss Loomis' health the
twin bill will be interspersed with two
added performances of the Mary Bo-
land comedy, "Cradle Snatchers" and
one performance of Frederick Lons
dale's "Aren't We All?" The first
drama will be given a4 the Saturday
matinee and on Monda? 1right, while
the English farce will be presented
Wednesday afternoodi. Friday night
the run of the twin bil will close.
In addition to Mtis Loomis in
"Great Catherine," Robert Henderson
will play his role of the drunken
prince Patiomkin, and Charles War-
burton will play Captain Edstaston.
Mrs. Mansfield will be supported in
the Barrie play by Holnman Faust and
Velma Royton.

novels of this type have no place in
literature, Eddy added.
Although much in Ibanez's work
might lead one to doubt his sincerity,
at least in his political beliefs, he ap-
peared completely sincere. While ap-
parently writing popular books for
the profit from their sales, Ibanez
invested a great deal of money in seek-
ing to bring about some of the chatg-
e's that he hoped to accomplish in
He often did queer things. In the
writing of one novel, for instance, he,
prepared two versions, the first with
a tragic ending was prepared for'
Spanish readers and the second was
revamped so that it had a happy end-
ing. It was prepared for translation
and sale in other countries.
Ibanez's greatest work was "La1
Barraca" (The Cabin). It finds its I
greatest strength in its description of
life in Valencia, a province of Spain.
These earlier works are also good for
their portrayal of the people and cus-
tonis f the Island of Majorca.
His later novels such as the "Four
Horsemen of the Apocalypse" and
"The Sea," although widely read can-
not be considered as literature by the1
critical public. The movies of Ibanez's
work show him at his worst. They
are all prepared from his later novels7
and are built on a sentimental story'
instead of a great work of literature.

For two weeks the guard has been

Disturbances occurred last night
whan more than 200 men, who entered

>f the disorders today from Col. Don

"This is a government of law and

If violence continues troops will be
