IDebates On Various Questions Are
Interrupted And Varried Over
Beause Of Adjournment
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, April 3-Death of
another comrgde, tl time Gallivan,
of Massachusetts, brought mourning
to the 70th Congress today, halting
the proceedings, of both House and
Senate ii respect to his memory.
The Ilouse did not open its doors
at all, leaving,the echoes.of the great
chamber to keep company with the
memory of the voice that had so often
set them dancing to its picturesque
phrasing at the time of the prohibi-
tion battle, for Gallivan was a wet of
the wets, a bitter foe of prohibition,
but an orator whose foceful, poweri
ful defense of the cause he champion-
ed rarely failed to bring applause
from wets and drys alike.
Death Causes Adjournment
The Senate adjourned' early be-
cause of the recent deaths in the mem-
bership of Congress, but it adopted
a resolution of yegret and shut up
shop. The farm relief debate was
carried forward another step, Brook-
hart, of Iowa, Independent Republi-
can, training his guns on the revised
McNary-Haugen project, while May-
field; Democrat, Texas, supported it.
When the fight will end in a final
vote is in doubt, although Senate
leaders hopesto finish in two or three
days at most.
The House adjournment blocked
further efforts of that side to get the
flood control bill a definite legisla-
tive status. It also served to precent
formal cognizance of President Cool-
idge's view that the Jones bill as pass-
ed by the Senate is susceptible to
criticism because it fails to fix a
definite cost for the Mississippi pro-
ject. To what extent House action
may be affected towards pruning the
Senate plan to something more in
keeping with administration ideas is
not yet clear.
Senators Investigate Departments
In the course of the Senate debate,
which was interrupted, so far as the
farm bill was concerned, to give Dis-
trict of Columbia appropriations the
right of way, Senators George and
Harris, of Georgia took occasion to
call upon the postoffice and justice
departments for full investigations of
the suicide of the postmaster at Dou-
glas, Georigia, and any connection con-
tributing "enactions" by the Repub-
lican state central committee 'or any
member of it might have with his
As a fitting celebration of Easter-
time, the Varsity band and the Var-
sity Glee club will join tomorrow
night in a special Easter concert in
Hill auditorium.: This concert will be
somewhat similar to the one which
was held last year at the time just
before the Spring vacation, although
different music and arrangements
have been planned throughout.
The concert tomorrow night will
begin at 8 o'clock and will be free!
to all, students and townspeople
alike. Both organizations have been
working on the music and specialties
for tomorrow night's concert since

the opening of the new semester, and
many new pieces have been intro-
duced into the already-large reper-
toire o! the two societies. Easter
music will coni'pose most of the pro-
gram, but it is expected that a few
Michigan songs will be played at the
end of the program.

Count Hermann Keyserling, noted
German philosopher and hailed by
many as the leading thinker in the
world today, who will deliver a lec-
ture here April 19 in Hill auditorium,
has left behind him an increasing
stream of argument and criticism as
he progresses around the United
States on his speaking tour.
The single statement of Count Key-
serging that has brought him most
notoriety is his statement that the
United States is fast becoming a ma-
triarchate. "America," says Count
Keyserling, "is governed by women.
Already America is the most closely
regulated socially of all nations. And
women will only serve to make it
more so."
"The man who would be a genius,"
declares Count Keyserling, "should
never marry. Marriage overwhelm-
ingly defeats all individuality in a
man and makes his thoughts serif to
those of his wife. During 800, years
of the world's history no man of spirit
ever married." The foregoing are the
statements that have brought criti-
cism and have stimulated discussions
on the matter in private, in public
and in the public prints.
Count Keyserling's other discovery
with rega!Nl to the United States is
that the people here, more than the
people of England, are more deeply

engrossed in social questions than
they are in intellectual ones. Amer-
ica, he believes is too well organized,
too well institutionalized. It is also
too commercialized, he believes, and
will "run down" in brt a short time.
These two arguments, among the
many others which have been advanc-
ed by Count Keyserling, have form-
ed the center of a practical discus-
sion in all cities where they have
been priesented. But coming from this
leader of philosophy in the world,
they have won attention and have
been found hard to refute. The sub-
ject of Count Keyserling's lecture in
Ann Arbor has not yet been :nounc-
ed by the committee.
