them more real satisfaction, than to

Senator Reed Of Pennsylvania Labels
'Men Who Earn $80,00 A Year
As "Poor Devils"
(By Associatea Press)
WASHINGTON, May 14.-The Sen-
ate wrangled all day about the in-
come tax plight of the class describ-
ed by Reed of Pennsylvania as "the
poor devils" who earn $80,000 a
Even Reed had to laugh at the
sound of that description. He quali-
fied it by saying he used the term
"poor" in a relative, not an absolute,
wolf-at-the-door sense. The Senate
finally put through the Republican in-
termediate surtax proposal, designed
to scale down totals for this class, on
a strict party defeat on a Democrat-
ic attempt to prescribe lower rates.
In the House, prison labor goods
took up the day in discussion of the
bill thatwould' empower any state to
close the door against such goods
from other states if it chooses.
As interludes to this debate, how-
ever, the House put through the con-
ference report on the shipping bil
and later, by a vote of 205 to 117
sending both to the Senate for fina
Both Senate and House had dis-
tinguished visitors during the day.
Secretary Kellogg and Secretary Dav-
is were on the floor while looking
things: over; and the House enter-
tained one of the Republican presi-
dential headliners in the person of'
former Gov. Frank O. Lowden, of Il-
linois. He held a reception in the
Republican cloakroom, then gossiped
with Speaker Longworth at the ros-
trum, getting a stir of handclapping
as he appeared on the floor.
Earlier in the day Lowden was be-
fore the Senate presidential campaign,
nestigatorto say that around '$60,-
'000 had gone into his efforts to ob-
tain the nomination at Kansas City
and that he had no arguments with
Dawes on delegates, adding that ev-
erybody knew they were old friends.;
He was followed by Watson, Reed,

WASHINGTON, May 14.-After '
meeting of House Republican leaders
Speaker Longworth said today thai
In his opinion Congress would prob-
ably adjourn about "J'une 1. He adde
that the conference had been for the
purpose of discussing a prospective
adjournment date, and that it wa
impossible to say definitely ju. whe
that would take place.
Representative Tilson, of Connect-
Icut, the majority floor leader, con-
curred with the speaker on the "a-
bout June 1" date and both were in
agreement that there was little if any
chance of its being earlier. The
speaker said that slow progress be-
ing made by the Senate on the tax
bill was one of the factors entering
into the uncertainty of the adjourn-
nent. He explained that the Senate
leaders had expected action on the
Imeasure last week and that at pre-
sent there was no indication as to
just when this would now be taken.

Although the city's formal welcome,
a military parade, is set for tomorrow

of Technology, beginning next fall,
it has recently been disclosed. The in-
novation has occasioned great interest
among educational authorities throug-
out the country.
The new course will consist of a
series of .round-table discussions and
any problem of interest will be ,al-
lowed discussed. The hope of those
who have planned the move is to
broaden the technical interests of the
Institute students so. as to include
subjects which may be regarded as
cultural. Special emphasis gwill be
placed on the development of a senmi
of humor and common sense.
The first head of the new depart-
ment will be Dr. Charles R. Gow. In
a recent address before an M. I. T. al-
umni group at Cambridge, Dr. Gow
stated his plans, which he admits are
still in the embryo state. He said that
he believed the average person' has
too little insight into the characters
of his fellow men and that 'he hoped
by using as illustrations men with
very pronounced character traits, to
both explain and build. character.
Dr. Gow is going to make his course
optional and at first it will be con-
fined to the two upper classes.

WASHINGTON, May 14.-Secretary

ment of Saturday that Herbert Hoov-

the Republican party's requirements#
for the presidency by saying: "I

Informed that many interpretations
had been given his statement to the I
Pennsylvania Republican delegationE
to the' Kansas City convention, the
treasury head said: "I don't see why
my statement should be misinterp-
reted. It is pretty plain English."
The Pennsylvania delegation, he
said,, "is a cohesive organization and
there has never been a time when
the state organization was more har-
monious than it is now."
One other comment was: "Any-
thing can happen."
Mr. Mellon all along has favored
renomination of President Coolidge,
and the secretary's associates do not
believe that his endorsement of Hoov-
er will necessarily mean that Penn-
sylvania's delegation will support
Hoover. They believe the delegation
will 'await developments before defin-
itely allying itself.
June 15 has been set as the date for
the formal opening of the new Uni-
versity museum. The dedicatory pro-
gram will be held at 10 o'clock on
that morning at the museum with
Dr. Thomas Barbour, of the Harvard
Museum of Comparative Zoology, as
the principal speaker.

"New York is a hard market for thet
new dramatist to crash," said Paul
Osborne in an interview yesterday,
"but it can be done, and if his plays
can weather commercial criticism,<
he's pretty much of a success."
A former Michigan man and rhet-1

interested in playwriting and is now1
busy with Rock Pemberton, his pro-
ducer, in getting two of his plays,1
"The Ledge," and "Side Show" ready
for their New York presentation the
latter part of the summer. "The+
Ledge,' 'a melodrama, was written ins
Osborne's former office in Angell1
hall; and "Side Show," a satirical

question as to whether it's be'st to
write plays and take them to :New
York or go to New York and write I
plays. I can't see that it makes much
"The hardest thing a dramatist has
,to face is commercial criticism. The
play may be a literary masterpiece
but unless it has the 'stuff the pro-
ducers want-plot,'more than charac-'
terization-it hasn't the value com-
mercially of a Rhetoric I theme. I
"I had an amusing experience in the
office of one producer to whom I took
one of my plays. A young man in-
formed me that my play would have to
go through several readers before the

telephone operator! I found out,
that his criticism was quite correct in
this case."
Paul Osborne's first effort was a
mystery play produced here in collab-
oration with a friend. "It was a ter-
rible thing," he said with a smile,'"but
it was a start. When I left here, -I
