House Continues Work On Appropri-
at~ion Bill For Four Govern-
met Departments
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 10-Tariff and
taxation, that old legislative team,
monopolized the spotlight today in'
Congress, while favorites of lesser
public appeal made their voices
heard intermittently and with diffi-
A genuine, old-fashioned debating
performance was put on by the Sen-
ate, with Harrison, of Mississippi,
Watson, of Indiana, Borah, of Ida-
ho, Bruce, of Maryland, Fess of Ohio,
Brookhart, of Iowa, McMaster, of
South Dakota, and McNary, of Ore-
gon, and others joining in to swell
the volume in the discussion of the
tariff which has been raised by Mc-
Ostensibly the Senate was consid-
ering whether it should declare in
favor of a downward revision of the
tariff, but taxes crept into the cres-
cendo, occasionall§, notably at the
instanceofsHarrison, who undertook
to make fun of the position of Smoot,
of Utah, who is determined that no
bills shall be approved until the
March 15 tax returns are in.
Back and forth, the debate went on
all afternoon, nobody giving ground
and nobody admitting errors.
Other Matters Discussed
It was punctuated at times by a
few observations not relevant to the
subject under discuss:on. One of
these instances was when Senator
Norris gave his opinion of the Con-
tinental Trading company, limited, of
Canada, which has been linked up
with the Teapot Dome cae. .---
The House went along with the ap-
propriation bill for four government
departments under a rule which gave
little roon for the airing of con-
gressional opinion. Madden, of the
appropriations commititee, got the
floor long enough to tell his fellow
reprsentatives that it would be hard
work for any unplanned appropria- I
tion to be approved by the House.
House committees, however, were
unusually active, even for that fast
moving branch of Congress. Director
Hines, of the veterans bureau, gave
one of them a plan for spending $10,-
500,000 for veterans hospitals. James
Beck, of Pennsylvania, appeared be-
fore another to defend his right to a
seat in the House from Pennsylvan,
ia. ,
Tariff Attacked
The tariff was dressed up and
dressed down in the Senate as an-
other all-day battle was waged over
the merits of the resolution of Sen-
ator McMaster, Republican, South
Dakota, declaring the Senate in fa-
vor of an immediate reduction of the
tariff rates.
Two battle-scarred tariff debaters
carried on the arguments as the
Democrats and Republicans squared
off once more on this issue. Pat Har-
rison, of Mississippi, carried the bat-
tle for the Democrats in favor of
the resolution with the complaint
that the tariff was responsible for
many of the ills of the farmers. Wat-
soni, of Indiana, led the defending ad-
ministration forces throughout~ the

stormy oratorical session, holding tp
a picture of American prosperity as
evidence of the benefits of the tar-
11arrison*, Watson, , Bal le
And while Senators Harrison and
Watson battled each other the Re-
publican farr group pecked away at
both men and turned the tariff de-
bate eventually into one of farm re-
"The beautiful rainbow that you!
stretched across the heavens," Iarri-
son declared, referring to premises
made to the farmers, "with all of{
its resplendent colors and hopes andI
anticipations became dim, and fadedI
from view."I
"Never in the broad circle of the
earth has .any nation enjoyed such
abundant prosperity," replied Was-
But Senators McMaster and Brook-I
hart, Republican, Iowa,, wanted to
know where the farmers fitted into
the picture. Harrison said agricul-j
ture was discriminate( against in the
tariff rates. Wats'n said supplemen.-

Reveal That Percentage
Deadly Gas Was Too
High For Life


(By \ssociated Press) I
BOSTON, Jaz. 10.-A deadly per-
centage of carbon dioxide had poison-
ed the air in the torpedo room of the
S-4 before rescurers could convey a
supply of oxygen to six men im-
prisoned in the sunken submarine,
the naval court of inquiry investigat-
ing the S-4 disaster was informed to-
Lieut. C. J. Flowte, who acted as
medical officer in the salvage offi-
cers, made public today the result of
tests of.air returned from the torpedo
room after airlines had been attached
to the listening tube on the night of
Dec. 21. The test, made at the Bos-
ton Navy yard, revealed seven per
cent of carbon dioxide.
"Life could not have existed when
the carbon dioxide reached this per-
centage," Dr. Flowte said. "Three per
cent of this gas is considered highly
dangerous to life.
"There was not only the high per-
centage of darbon dioxide to be con-
sidered, but the low temperature of
the water, which was 34 degrees. The
six men had existed for 72 hours in
this low temperature with 18 inches
of water on the floor, no food, no
water, and without proper clothing.
All of these things contributed to
hasten the end."
",Do you think that by blowing air
into the room at that time there was
a chance of reviving any of the per-
sonnel?" asked Com. Leslie E. Brat-
ton, judge-advocate.
"I doubt it very much," the witness
said. "It was done Wednesday night,
but they knew there was no chance to
save the men inside."
"Would you say from a medical
standpoint that from the time the
tests showed seven per cent of carbon
dioxide there was no life in the com-
rm"I would say they were all dead
without question."

Identilied With Leading (Gologists
And Geographers Of Country
Since Arcic r
Two lectures to be given Thursday.
both by Pro:. W. Elmer Ekblaw oif
Clark university were annouced
yesterday by officers of the geology
department. The lectures are in the
regular University series, but are
being given under the auspices of the
geology department, and will be pre-
sented at 4:10 o'clock Thursday aft-
ernoon and at 8 o'clock Thursday
night in Natural Science auditorium.
Professor Ekblaw is one of the
leading geologists and geographers
in the country, and has chosen far
his subject at both lecture: "The
Greenland Eskimo." He was geolo-
gist and botanist with the McMillan
Crockerland expedition to the Arc-
tic from the years 1913 to 1917, and
since that time has been prominently
identified with the study of Green-
land and its geological conditions.
Rook Publishedi
At the present time Professor Ek-
blaw's three volume work on Green-
land, which Prof. William obbs of
th geology department believes to be
the best work in the English lan-
guag on the subject of Greenland,'
has just been published.
In the first lecture Professor E-
blaw will deal with the land of
Thule, the northwest peninsula of
Greenland where the polar Eskimos
live. He will develop the factors of
location, relief, ice conditions, cli-
mate, and plant and animal life as
they constitute the habitat of the po-
lar Eskimo. In this lecture he will
confine himself to the physical side
of the geography of the region, tel--
ing something of the physiograuho
phenomena, of the climatic cn-
tions, and about the plant and a -
mal life.
In the second lecture, to be given
at 8 o'clock Thursday night, .'rofes-
sor Ekblaw will sketch upon the
background of the afternoon lT q r
the life of the polar Eskimo indi-
eating how their homes, food, cloth-
ing, and activities are regimented ly
the physical conditions.
Eskimos Were Prim iie
Until recently the group of Eski-
mos he will describe have been un-
touched by outside influence or alien
Professor Ekblaw received his A.
B. degree from the universiy of 11-
linois in 1910, taking his M.A. de-
gree from the same institution two
years later. In 191 he went with
the MeMillan expedition and explor-
ed many miles of unknown coast and
large expanses of land. Since his re-
turn he has been doing research work
for the University of Illinois and for
the American Museum of Natural
History, and has received his Ph. D.
degree from Clark universit-y.-
During his stay here he will be the
guest of the faculty of the geology
and geography departments at a
luncheon at the Union at noon and
will be the guest of a fraternity of

Many Gifts Presented To Avi-lor As
He Makes Official Visit To
National Capitol
(By Associated Press)
PANAMA, Jan. 10.-The president
and vice-president of Panama were
passengers in a De Haviland biplane
flown by Col. Charles A. Lindbergh
today, providing a high spot in a dayE
full of festivities in honor of the!
noted flyer's visit.
After a short test flight, Colonel
Lindbergh took President Chiari up
for a 15-minute trip. When the ex-
ecutive stepped from the aircraft after
the first ride of his life, he said, "Ad-
mirable, magnificent! A man must
fly in order to realize how insignificant
he is in the universal order of things."
Officers Congratulate Him
After cabinet members had hastened
to congratulate the chief executive,

Prof. Donald M. Matthews of thet
School of Forestry and Conservation
expressed himself well satisfied with
result's of experiments in reforestra-
tion of waste sugar cane lands on his
return from Cuba recently. Matthews,
who is consulting forester for the
United Fruit company and the Cuba
company, left for Cuba on Dec. 16, re-
turning to Ann Arbor after a brief
three weeks tour of the island.
Utilization of abandoned cane land,
which produces too low a crop of
sugar to make it pay has been con-
verted by reforestration into a future
success, Matthews reported. Both
companies which he represents have
encouraged the work so far, Matthews
said. The United Fruit company has
definitely decided on an experimental
program in reforestration to last five
