END OF BITTER FIGHT
IN BOTH HOUSES
SENATE SPENDS BUSY DAY
Protection In Mississippi Flood Area
Will Be Assured As Bill Goes
Into Immediate Effect
(By Associated Press
WASHINGTON, May 15.-The first
constructive achievement of the 70th
Congress, the Mississippi flood con-
rol bill, became a law today when
President Coolidge attached his sig-
nature. Just a short week ago, both
Senate and House were reverberating
with the struggle that marked the
birth of the gigantic engineering pro-
ject; yet neither branch paused today
ong enough to accord a passing
salute to the final act of the flood
control drama.
On the contrary, both houses
rudged along with elements of the
legislative program to be completed
before the interruption of the con-
vention. The Senate dealt with taxes,
third of the trio of big law making
obs that were on the slate when Con-
gress met last December. The House
put through the prison-made goods
enabling act designed to permit states
to .act for themselves in excluding
such goods from other state's.
There was little sign of haste about
tax debate today. For the most part
it dealt with the plight of American
corporations In the Philippines which
were denied any relief ultimately, but
t took two hours talking to reach that
point.
The Senate then took up the con-
ference report on the merchant mar-
ine policy bill. Amonk the commit-
tees only the House rules body, which
got out an eigt-hour debate limit for
the Boulder dam limit, assured vir-
tually a vote in the House on that
subject before adjournment; and the
mnate,' campbign funds committee in-
qtiiry .did mnuch of Interest. They
learned more about the efforts of
Hoover's foes and friends in the pre-
cohvention fight.
The Senate committee investiga~ting
conditions in the soft coal regions
heard representatives of the Pen-
nsylvania railroad deny that they had
tried to influence downward the price
of coals from union mines and pro-
posed remedial legislation from the
United Mine workers.
In several of . the big committees
during the da other pending projects
were mentioned, but with agreement
by their, authors in most cases that
they. be conferred until the winter
session. A host of small bills are
waiting on the calendar and the Sen-
ate will stick tight next week to hurry
them through; but practically, the
first session of the 70th Congress is
clearing its deck for the convention
adjournment with the general outline
of Its accomplishments fairly well de-
fined.
WASHINGGTON, May 15. - The
United States Mine workers' sugges-
tion for legislation to bolster the sofi
coal industry has been embodied ir
bill form, and were distributed in exe-
cutive meeting of the Senate inter
state commerce committee today b
Chairman Watson. .
The bill seeks "to regulate Inter-
state and foreign commerce in bitum
inous coal; provides for consolidation
mergers, and cooperative marketing
regulates the fuel supply of inter
state carriers; requires the licensin
of corporations producing and 'ship

ping coal in interstate commerce; any
to create a bituminous coal commis
sion."
Watson, said he probably would in
troduce the measure in the Senate to
morrow, after which it will be re
ferred to the sub-committee.

PAINTED DEMONS
SEIZE CAPTIVES
BY MIGHTY OAK
Listen to this tale of romance,
Tale of Indian warriors bold-
In the early moon of green leaves
Came they forth, the stoics val-
iant;
Forth they romped to paleface
wigwam,
Wigwam once of friend Great
Chief,
Palefaces mighty among his kind;
Camehesforth to takentheir token
Of the warpath they would tread.
Then to the mighty oak of Tap-
pan
Dashed the screaming, yelling
redmen;
To the tree of Indian legend
Whence the white men pale and
trembling
Stood around the mighty oak;
Warriors choice of paleface na-
tion,
Choice of Tribe to run the gaunt-
let.
Down the warriors, painted
demons,
Swooped and caught their prey
like eagles,
Loud the war cry 'stirred the still-
ness.
As they seized their hapless cap-
tives,
Forth they bore them to their
wigwam
There to torture at their pleasure.
There they ate around the glow-
ing campfires,
Heard the words of mighty wis-
dom,
Smoked the pipe of peace and
friendship.
Thus there came, to Michigamua.

CRIMINAL COURT ORDERS
INVESTIGATION

OF

CROWE FOR PROSECUTION
Carlstrom, Attorney General Of State1
Appointed Prosecutor; Will Be
In Complete Charge
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, May 15.-Chicago crime
at last is to go under the scalpel of
a special grand jury.
Chief Justice Brothers of the
criminal court decided Monday to re-
fer the whole series of political mur-
ders, bombings, intimidations and
kidnappings to a jury to be called to-I
gether June 4.
Oscar Carlstrom, attorney general
'of Illinois with the assistance of two
representatives of the Chicago Bar
association, which he has been ac-
tive in demanding a thorough inves-
tigation.
The grand jury will be empowered
to go back as far as the 1926 elec-
tions in its ingiry into charges of
terrorism and fraud. It will be asked
to look into all the circumstances sur-
rounding the bombing of Senator
Deneen's and Judge Swanson's homes.
as well as the slaying of "Diamond
Joe" Esposito and Octavius Granady,
each of whom was a candidate for
ward committeeman on the Deneen
ticket at the April 10, last, primary
election.
Crowe Requests Jury
State's Attorney Robert E. Crowe,
under whose regime the politico-
crime conditions are alleged to have,
existed, joined in the request for the
special grand jury. He suggested to
Judge Brothers that the prosecution
be placed in the hands of Judges
Swanson and Lindsay, 'Republican
and Democratic candidates, respect-
ively, for state's attorney next Novem-
ber.
Judge Swanson won the nomination
from Crowe at the primary election.
"One of these men will be the next
state's attorney," Crowe told the
t court, "and they might4 as well learn
what they are up against now."'
This suggestion brought objection-
I from Carl R. Latham, president of the
bar association, who said two riva'
candidates for the same office could
anot be expected to work in harmony.
Theer was some objection made to
e the designation of Attorney General
Carlstrom as prosecutor, it being
n pointed out that he was a candidate
for re-election on the Deneen Repub-
-lican state, which opposed the fac-

COMMITTEE RECEIVS
CAMPAIGNSTATEMENTI
Magazine "Politics" Is Antagonistic
To Candidacy Of. Secretary,
Evidence Shows
3 GROUPS GIVE SUPPORT
(By Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON, May 15.-- Details
and interesting ,accounts of the forces
at work for and against the candi-
dacy of Herbert Hoover for the Re-
publican presidential nomination were
given today to the Senate campaign
expenditures committee in two long
sessions.
The testimony disclosed that while
three Hoover organizations, national
in scope but acting independently, are
doing their utmost for the commerce
secretary, the magazine Politics pub-
lished here is fighting Hoover and en-
couraging the field against him.
The statement that Hoover 'support-
ers in California, New York and Wash-
:ngton are following separate courses
in an effort to win the nomination for
the cabinet member came from George
T. Lockwood, one of generalissimos of
his office here, and drew from Sen-
ator McMaster, Republican, South Da-
kota, a rapid-fire of questions. The
senator told the witness that Jame's
W. Wood, another Hoover counsul
had "led the committee to believe"
that the local office was the national
headquarters, directing operations of
those in California and New York.
Richie and George C. Akerson,
seretaries to Hoover, had told him
that unless he changed the policy this
country would be made too hot for
him in the event of Hoover's election
to the presidency.
From former Gov. Samuel R. Mc-
Kelvie, of Nebraska, the inquisitors
received a voluntary statement as to
his views on expenditures and circum-
stances surrounding the recent con-
test for Republican delegates in his
state. McKelvie said that it was his
understanding that the nine delegate's
elected for Senator Norris, Republi-
can independent, had been chosen
through a coalition between the Nor-.
ris, Lowden and Dawes forcestin hae
tstate, a coalition which is said to have
come about after Lowden's manager
had stated he would enter the name of
the Illinois governor in the primaries.

Participants Are Famous
All those participating in tonight's
galaj opening have reached high pin-
acles of fame in their respective
fields. Miss Matzenauer has long been
an Ann Arbor favorite. She has been
heard in Hill auditorium on many oc-
casions,' both in concerts and in
choral work. In the several years
since she has been here, critics have
acclaimed that her voice has "rip-
ened to a full maturity." She h
said to have an unusually large re-
portorie and to be able to do any ol
the great roles almost at sight. Al-
though known primarily as a great
contralto, Miss Matzenauer's voice
range isssaid to be so great that she
.can be called upon to sing practically
any soprano part.
The fame of the Chicago Symphony
orchestra is known to music lovers
all over the country. It has long
stood out as one of America's most
remarkable musical bodies. The Ann

Mostly cloudy with shmivers

The University of Michigan club of
Schenectady, New York, has just
been announced as winner of the
Rumney plaque for this year's alum-
ni Triennial meeting, according to T.E
Hawley Tapping, Field secretary off
the Alumni Association. The plaque
was donated by Mason P. Rumney,
'07 E, of Detroit, past president of
the organization, and is awarded to
the chapter which, at the Triennial,
has the best record with regard to
total miles traveled by the delegates,
total membership of the club, end
per cent of representation at the meet-
ing.
Robert S. Peare, '22, and C. W.
Stuart, '22, were the delegates for
the Schenectady club. Mr. Stuart is
President of his group and Secretary
Treasurer of the First district which
covers New York and New England.
Nineteen delegates from Detroit
traveled 10,000 miles to rank first in
the total miles traveled while the
New York delegation of six ranked
second with a total of 9,600 miles.

Arbor May Festival has been able to
profit by the friendly relationship
which has existed between the Uni-
versity Musical Society and this or-
chestra of 70 pieces in that it has
been possible to bring the group here
for each year during the last quarter
of a century.
Miss Rhead has gained an enviable
reputation as an accompanist and will
assist Miss latzenauer during her
seven numbers tonight through her
accompaniement on the piano.
Christian Toured Country
As official University organist, Pal-
mer Christian has been recognized
for his ability as an organist by be-
ing selected recently to be America's
representative at a concert given in
New York by four great organists
from Italy, Belgium, France, and Am-
erica. His services are in continual
demand from coast to coast. While
the work was being done on the in-
stallation of the new organ, he tour-
ed the country, playing in many of
the large cities, including Kansas
City, Denver, Los Angeles, Portland
and S'an Francisco.
Frederick Stock and Eric Delamar-
ter have both been actively identified
with the work of the Chicago Sym-
phony Orchestra, Mr. Stock as con-
ductor, Mr. Delamarter as associate
conductor. Many critics look to Mr.
Stock as the outstanding orchestral
conductor of the country. Ever since
his early youth he has been identi-
fied with orchestral work and attract-
ed attention soon after his first pub-
lic appearances. His rise to fame was
rapid and in 1904 he became the con-
ductor. Mr. Delamarter has conducted
the orchestra on many notable occa-
sions and his work tonight when he
will have the distinct honor of wield-
ing the baton over the dedicatory ex-
ercises for the new Frieze memorial
organ will be a tribute to his work.
A few tickets remaining for the con-
cert will be available today at the
University _School of Music.

FIRST FREE SHOW FOR MAJOR CHAMPIONSHIP APPEARS
AS BASEBALL NINE CLiNGS TO BIG TEN LEADERSHIP

By Red Eds
It has now been more than a year
since Michigan students were defin-
itely promised a free movie in Hill
audtorium following the winning of a
major Western conference champion-
ship. And ever since the free pic-
ture was promised no Michigan team
ha's succeeded in overcoming the
seemingly additional handicap.Z
Now that the baseball team is hav-;
ing a successful season and seems to
be well on its way towards a Big Ten
title, students are beginning to won-
der again if it will be able to escape
the jinx that has accompanied every
other 'set of Wolverine athletics this

willing to bet Michigan won't win an-1
other one for the next ten years." <
Still it may be that the group of
practical minded young men who wear1
Coach Fisher's baseball suits will for-
get about Timothy's gloomy prediction
and win their championship anyway.
Although repressing a naturally
collegiate desires to celebrate pro-
per occasions from time to time,
Michigan men so forgot them'selves on-
a number of nights last year as to at-
tempt to raid the local theaters after
certain athletic victories.
The first rush was quite success-

The result was discouraging from a
standpoint of intellectual. iand cul-

casion with telling efectiveness, two
students were slightly injured in the
crush and one was burned about the
eyes by the explosion of one of the
gas bombs.
