ate a greater appreciation of good
music in the high schools of the
state. The various state high schools
are now rehearsing the same selec-
tions in anticipation of the event.
The concert to be broadcast by
winners in the vocal and instrument-
al contests is subject to revision af-

tor of the School of Music, and the

ference on the final of the program

srs. Francais de Croisset and Robert

Equalization Fee Provision Cut Out Of
McNary-Haugen Bill; Legality
Of Vote Is Defeated
(By Associated Press)
} WASHINGTON, May 2.-Congress
laid aside today its crowding problems
and its usual aloof dignity to pay
homage to the gallantry of the Ger-
man-Irish trio, first to span the At-
lantic westward by air.
It greeted them with the thunder of
applause from floor to gallery; in
the House with an added shout of
fury, punctuated with a rebel yell or
two, and in both Senate and House
with a friendly handclasp, to proclaim
American admiration for the daring
that brought this group of voyagers
of the air lanes with their message of
good will from friendly people across
the seas.
Move Is Discussed
And had they . but known it, the
three smiling, bewildered heroes of
the moment came into the House
chambers at a historic moment. By
a vote of 141 to 120 a parliamenary
situation had been created in which1
the House itself did not know whether
it had cut the equalization fees, the
heart of the long controversy, out of
the McNary-Haugen farm relief bill.
What to do about it had not been de-
cided when it recessed to greet the air
heroes. When that was over an ad-
journment was taken to give time
for deeper study.
WASHINGTON, May 2. - The
House by a vote of 141 to 120 today
expressed its disapproval of the equal-
ization fee provision of the MNary-
Haugen farm relief bill and then en-
gaged in its most heated parliament-
ary dispute in years as to just what
it had voted on.
The reception of the fee principl
came as a complete surprise and im-
mediataly .threw the chamier into
tumult and confusion with a half a
dozen members on their feet trying to
obtain recognition.
Aswell Moves Vote
The vote had been un a motion by
Representative A'swell - of Louisiana,
ranking Democrat on the House agri-
culture committee, which drafted the
bill, to strike out the first section of
the measure that proposes a state-
ment of policy in the control of agri-
cultural surplus.
He offered as a substitute a new bill,
which he said was identical to the Mc-
Nary-Haugen measure except that all
references to the fee had been omitted.
He added that if his motion carried he
proposed to move the substitution of
his bill by section for replacing the
other measure. Aswell carried his
motion on the ensuing vote. He then
started another motion to eliminate
the second section of the McNary -
Haugen bill and substitute the second
section of his new measure.
Canon Takes Floor
Immediately however Representa-
tive Canon Democrat, Missouri, who
served as parliamentarian of the
House under Speaker Champ Clark,
took the floor nd contended that the
House by its vote had substitued all
of Aswell's bill for the MNary-Haugen
bill and that the equalization fee had
thereby'been killed.
Then the fight was on, a number of
the members supporting Canon's
view; other opposed with vigor, and
more had different opinions as to
what had taken place.
After two hours of discussion, dur-~

ing which the presiding officer, Repre-
sentativo Mapes, Republican, Mich-
igan, nearly wore out his gavel pound-
ing for order. The House apparently
was no nearer :a decision than when
it started. It then deferred settle-
ment of the quesion until tomorrow,.
and adjourned.
I It was conceded, however, that the
I vote constituted the first defea for
McNary-Haugen farm bloc in Congress
for two years, but whether the victory
will prove to be only temporary re-
imained undecided.

In a clo-se race for the Freshman

The election took place at the close
of a pep meeting held at 7:30 o'clock
last night in the Assembly hall of
the Union. Carl G. Brandt, of the

principal speaker of the se'ssion. He
urged the members of the class of '31.
to cooperate, both among themselves
and with the officials of the games.
"The most valuable thing about the
games," he said, "i's the fact that it is
the beginning of your activities on
the campus. Participation in these
annual contests wll lead up to partici-
pation in something bigger during the
four years in school."

rence Klein, '30, was named as as-
sistant city editor.
Three members of the class of 1931
will be chosen for assistants to the
news editor but in other respects
the list is complete. There is only
one change of policy being made this
year. The column which has ap-
peared this year under the heading
"Theater, Books, and Music," will.
become the "Music and Drama" col-
umn as it was a year ago and Smith
will take over the editorship of a
new Books column which will ap-
pear on pages two or three of The
Daily in the near future.
New plans are being contemplated
for The Michigan Weekly which had
completed its first year. Nothing de-
finite has ben decided as yet but
the new editor, Hooker, will take up
plans at once which will make for
an even more successful weekly.
