Submerged Submarine Must Look Out
For Self As Well As Other
Ships, Claims Expert
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13-Friday the
13th was no deterring influence on
Congress today, either in the way of
getting things started, or finishing
them up.
The House ground out another ap-
propriation bill-that of the Interior
department, calling for $272,000,000,
most of which will go for pensions.
The Senate almost finished its talk
on the tariff, which has been in pro-
gress for several days, and fixed Mon-
day at 3 o'clock for a vote.
Coincident with this action, the ta-
riff fight, begun by Senator McMas-
ter, of South Dakota, one of the Wes-
tern Independent Republicans, spread
over to the House side, where Repre-
sentative Dickenson, Republican, Io-
wa, prepared to go after higher ta-
riff rates on agricultural imports on
behalf of the farmer.
Dickenson, incidentally, will have
the support of Representative "Jack"
Garner, the Texas Democrat-up to a
certain point. Garner wants to talk
tariff, but hehpromised only to help
in getting the subject before the
House, after which the Democrats
will make no guarantees.
While the House was going about
in its machine-like way of passing the
Interior bill today, the Senate droned
along with the 'tariff, with Senator
Fess, of Ohio, taking up the defense
of the administration,sand perhaps a
dozen m'ien taking shots at him as the
opportunity offered. Probably it was
a sleepy audience on the Democratic
side, because most of the leaders of
the minority party had been kept
awake into the small hours of the
morning at the JacksonhDay dinner.
W yoming Governor Talks
In the House committee rooms,
Governor Emerson, of Wyoming, was
a prominent figure. He appeared to
ask that the Boulder Canyon dam billj
be held up while an attempt wasi
made by the states interested to reach
an agreemnt. Finishing his House
testimony, the governor went over to
the Senate side to give his views on
a project important to his section.
The flood control hearings contin-
ued and Chairman Griest of the pos-
tal committee, drew up a bill to lower
postage rates by which $10,000,000
would be lopped off the cost to the
consumer. Assistant Secretary Rob-
inson, told the naval committee that
the Navy was not talking about a
"paper fleet" when it produced its
building program, but that it wanted
real ships.1
BOSTON, Jan. 13- A submarine
running submerged must look out for
herself and for surface ships in her
course as well, Lieut.-Com. Clarke
Withers, a submarine expert, told the
naval court of inquiry investigating
the S-4 disaster today.-
"When the commander of a sub-
marine operating at periscope depth
sees a ship heading toward him, he
has two courses open to him," Lieu-
tenant Commander Withers, who is
executive officer of the submarine
tender Bushnell, said. "He may dive
deeper and go under her, or he may
bring his vessel to the surface where
the other vessel may see him,and
both can manuver out of danger.
Must Watch Others

"Asubmarine running submerged
must look out forsthe other ships as
well as for herself. She cannot
count upon the other ship seeing her,
and obeying the rules of the road.
submarine periscopes are built in
time, and they are invisible in peace I
such a way as to be invisible in war-
time as well.
"The one thing not to do if a col-t
lision is imminent or even possible
is to remain at periscope depth."
The testimony of Lieutenant-Com-
mander Withers was the feature of
a day devoted to hearing the evidence
of seven officers who took part in the.
re-enactment of the S-4 disa.ter off
Provincetown yesterday. Four of theE
witnesses acted as observers on board
the S-6 which went submerged over
the course followed by the sister
ship, S-4, on Dec. 17, just before its
collision with the coast guard de-
stroyer Paulding. Three were ob-
servers on board the coast guard de-
stroyer Monaghan which followed the
course of the Paulding on that day.

Celebrating the 75th anniversary of

ident spoke at the opening session of
the celebration yesterday morning,
devoting his address to a discussion
of elementary and grade school teach-
ing problems.
President Little stated that grade
and high school teachers show more
favorable attitudes toward their pupils
than instructors in the University,
and he also added that collected data
from grade, high school, and college
teachers shows that there is a de-
creasing interest in the student as
one goes higher up the grade. This
is a reason for the emphasis on ana-
lysis of students by college professors,
President Little declared.
"The most advanced products
should surely receive the most detail-
ed attention, or else be subjected toa
such careful evaluation and classifi-
cation before coming in contact with
college teachers that no effort in-
volving individual analysis would be,

Conirol 0 Production By Cooperation
Of Producers And Covernment
Is Advocated
Dean Henry M. Bates of the Law
school will leave for Washington, D.
C., Friday, Jan. 20, to attend a meet-
ing which lie has called as chairman
of the federal committee of nine
whose function it is to study the oil
problem, and make recommendations
for its solution.
"Changes in the Sherman anti-trust
law and similar laws of several stat-
es to provide for control of the pro-
duction of oil by cooperation between
producers and at the same time reg-
ulation of the price by the govern-
ment is the logical solution to the
present oil problem," Dean Bates de-
clared in a recent interview.
Dean Bates claims that millions of
dollars are wasted each year by com-
petitors in the oil production field
who wish to hasten production on
their particular lands, and thereby
permit the escape of natural gas. In
their haste to get all the oil out of
the ground that they possibly can be-
tore adjacent owners of land become
active, the operators simply use the
natural pressure, according to Dean
Bates, and frequently, as a result of
this, less than one half of the oil avail-
able is actually obtained from the
ground, the rest sinking. All the
gas is usually lost. Citing an example
of such waste, Dean Bates showed
that in one year 250 billion cubic feet

The committee again requests that

Before the advent of Dr. Grenfell
the people of Labrador were absolute-
ly ignorant of medical, surgical, and
even hygienic principles. He has
gradually reduced the deaths from
Labrador's two great scourges, small-
pox and tuberculosis. Ailing people
are now brought thousands of miles
on sledges to his hospitals along the
coast for treatment and cure which
otherwise could not be had. The hope
of his mission is to educate the chil-
dren of Labrador in the science of
medicine, to the end that they may
breed a healthier race.
The work is largely carried on by
college students whom Dr. Grenfell
draws to Labrador in large numbers
every summer. Particularly are they
drawn from Johns Hopkins and Har-
vard Medical school. From Ann Ar-
bor last summer Dr. Carl W. Eber-
bach of the University faculty and
Mrs. Hilda Ramsay went to Labrador
to aid in the mission.

Win Tonight To Mean Chance For Try
At Championship; Maize And Blue
Arrive At Crisis
By Ierbert E. Vedder.
Michigan and Indiana, champion
and runner-up in the Western Con-
ference basketball race a year ago,
will meet at 7:30 o'clock tonight in
Yost field house to inaugurate the
Wolverines' home Big Ten season in
what may aptly be termed an all-im-
portant game, one which should not
be at all different from the many
close, nerve-racking contests of the
past. La'st year the Hoosiers won the
I second game from the Wolverines by
I a three-point margin after sustaining
a four-point defeat at their hands
earlier in the campaign.
The situation confronting the Wol-
verines tonight is nothing if not crit-
ical; the Hoosiers must fall. The
Maize and Blue vehicle has arrived at
! the fork of the road and must turn
I in one direction or the other; if the
Wolverine machine can be shifted into
high gear, it will turn onto the road
which leads to a place in the first
rank in spite of early reverse's.
Is Hoosier Crance, -
To Indiana, the situation is not
quite so serious, but the Hoosiers can
firmly establish themselves as a quin-
tet of the first water by a win tonight.
Coach Dean's team was rated more a
an uncertai ity than as a great aggre-
gation before the season opened, but
its 32-13 victory over Chicago last
Saturday served as a definite warn-
ing that this five cannot be trifled
It was this same badly beaten Mar-
oon team which held Northwestern,
conqueror of Mihigan and Iowa, to
a one-point win Thursday.
In addition to the invaders' sopho-
more sensation, McCracken, who
scored more points in one game than
any of the other Big Ten stars did in
two, Indiana also boasts some further
talent. No one in the Big Ten can
forget Capt. Art Beckner who has
ever seen him play. He is a fine
floorman and a great sharpshooter,
having led the scorers two years ago.
Wells, who lines up at the other for-
ward, and Correll, guard, are other
veterans who will play tonight. The
second guard position ha's seen keen
competition between two sophomores,
Scheid and Gill, with Scheid having
the edge. Starr, because of his pro-
clivity at foul shots is expected to be
at forward at least part of the game.
Michigan In Hole
The Wolverines, backed into a
thicket, are determined to fight their
way out of the jungle at any cost,
and Coach Veenker has nominated the
same five men who started against
Wisconsin as the men to chalk up
Michigan's first Conference victory of
the season.
Capt. Frank Harrigan has been
shifted to forward along side of Oost-
erbaan, with Rose stepping in at
Harrigan's running guard post. Chap-
man and McCoy, center and guard re-
spectively, retain their places.
This coinination is expected to add
speed to the Wolverine quint, with
Rose bringing the ball down the floor
and Harrigan and Oosterbaan teaming
in the front rank. Rose made a rath-
er good showing at Madi'son and his

guarding is of such a nature that it
should aid somewhat ni maintaining

of the rut in which it rested last
week. It will provide an opportunity
for the revival of the Harrigan-Oost-
erbaan combination which was rated
as the finest scoring weapon in the
Conference last year-as attested by
the fact that both men were among
the first five scorers. So far this
season, that combination has not
been effective.
Offense, which slumped so badly
last week, has been stressed in every
workout of late, and if this can take
a turn for the better while the defense
remains tight, Michigan should give
the Hoosiers a real tussle.
