class reunions will be features of this

attendance at reunions has dwindled

of the enlarged staff in the Alum'ni as-

William V. Jeffries, grad., president
of the Union for the past year, and W.
Roger Greene, '28, recording secretary
during the same period, heartily en-
dorsed the proposed merit system of
selecting candidates to fill their of-
fices in interviews given j The Daily
"Under the present sy-stem," Jef-
fries declared, "there is too great a
chance of unqualified individuals to
secure the offices. Because a person
is a good vote getter, it is not in-
dicative that he will be a good admin-
- istrator.
"At present," he averred, " a com-
mitteeman may work arduously for
three years and then be unable to be
Ice-Bound Vessel Has At Last Been
Freed And Will Proceed
To Copenhagen
Professor William Tierbert Hobbs,
director of the'University Greenland
expedition, yesterday received a cable-
gram from Denmark which reveals
that the Disko, stuck in the ice off
the southern coast of Greenland for
the last several weeks, has at last
been freed and will be prepared to
take Professor Hobbs and his party
to the Mt. Evans observatory about
June 15. Through this fortunate cir-
cumstance the expedition will be de-
layed only about two weeks and a
half, Professor Hobbs estimates.
Professor Hobbs, who has been anx-
iously awaiting the news, will leave
Ann Arbor Wednesday for New York
and will sail Saturday to Copenhagen,
where he will await the Disko. The
freight of the party, which has been
in New York since the delay, will
sail on the same ship which ' takes
Professor Hobbs.

"If the new plan is put into effect,
the Board of Directors will choose
only the person who is deserving. The
selection will not be made in a hur-
ried manner, but the records of the
candidates will be thoroughly inves-
tigated," Jeffries concluded.
g Student interest will be stimulated
tremedously and a much higher type
of student will be drawn into compe-
tition for the Union offices," Greene
believes, "if the proposed amendment
goes into effect."
"This will naturally result," he con-
tinued, "in a better type of president
and recording secretary because men
will be more tempted to enter the
competition when they realize that
their work and merit will be judged
fairly, regardless of whether or not
they have powerful fraternity or polit-
ical backing."
"Under the new plan," Greene stat-
ed, "the selection will be made in such
a way that the Board' of Director3a will
be kept continually in close contact
with the men working in the various
departments and in voting will be in
a position to know personally the in-
dividual qualifications of each appli-

Repeal Of Tax On Automobiles
Involving $60,00,000
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, May 21-The tax
reduction bill was passed tonight by
the Senate tonight without a record
vote. The measure provides for a
slash of $205,000,000 in the burden of
the taxpayers.
In a desperate last minute drive
Republicans succeeded in eliminating
the bill the only important provision
won by the Democrats during the long
tax contest-the proposal for a grad-
uated scale of lower rates on corpor-
ations with ,incomes of $115,000 and
This action was won on a tie vote
after two roll calls, with Vice Presi-
dent Dawes deciding the issue. The,
elimination of the graduated scale
provision clipped $24,000,000 from the
total reduction provided by the mea-I
sure, thus bringing the total tax cut
within range of the $200,000,000 limi-
tation set by President Coolidge and
Secretary Mellon.
Chairman Smoot of the Senate fi-
nance committee in charge of the bill
mmediately asked that the SenateI
meet in conference with the House,
which voted for a $290,000,000 reduc-
tion and his request was acceded to.
Several days at least are expected to
be consumed in the efforts to obtain
a compromise between the Senate and
the House.
Corporations win the big chunk of
-he tax reduction melon, getting $94,-
'00,000 directly from its provisions.
The proposal of the Senate to cut the
corporation levy from 13 1-2 to 12 1-2
per cent accounts for $82,000,000 of
the reduction.
The provisions approved by both
'he Senate and House for an increase
'n the exemption allowed corporations
from $2000 to $3000 involved a loss in
revenue of $12,000,000.
The other main provisions of the re-
Auction program is the repeal of the
automobile tax, involving $66,000.000
in revenue.

Just a year ago this morning, The
Daily carried one of the most porten-
tious headlines that has ever graced
he top of its front page: "'Lindbergh j
succeeds in New York-Paris Flight." .
The type which bore this news to the
Mchigan caipu's was not as large as

ity papers, but it created as great an
sffect as did the two-and three-inch
The morning before, May 21, the
tart of the Captain's flight -he was
not a colonel then-was heralded in a
1 ory at the bottom of the front page.
It was a matter of fact, Associated
Press story. The heads, too, were l
matter of fact. A few weeks before,
two of France's most famous aviators
had failed in the western flight. Their
deaths were still in the memories of
the world. People were still sceptical
about the Atlantic flight. Many, then,
2onsidered Lindbergh as a fool, a
young flier who could fly mail planes,
:naybe, but who knew nothing of
acean flight. When he took off, very{
sew, if any, dreamed of the fame thatf
was to be his within the next day, the
next week, and the next year.
Sunday morning's Daily bore the
epochal story of Lindbergh's landingl
At Le Bourget field, and of the French
>vation. It told of the weary-eyed
Uindbergh, who had sat at the con-
trols of his plane for 34 straight hours,
and of the dangers through which he
had safely passed. To many on cam-
pus The Daily story was not the first
news of accomplishment, for on the
Saturday night previous, the phones
were kept busy by anxious persons
seeking confirmation of the landing or
the latest developments.
Since then, Lindbergh has become a
national hero, he has flown around
the country and the continent, and is
now preparing for greater tasks.
Books sometimes carry the story of
sudden rise to fame, but few have ever
told of such a dramatic ri'se as do the
columns in The Daily files.

Owing to a number of conflicting
meetings to be held at the same time,,
the assembly of Union members sche-s
duled for tomorrow night has been
changed until 7:30 o'clock Thursdayt
night when it will be held in the ballJ
room of the Union, it was announced
last night by William V. Jeffries,
grad., president of the Union for thet
past year.
After having been endors'ed by thet
Board of Directors of the Union and
approved by the present student offic-
ers as well as by members of the fac-t
ulty, the amendments proposing tof

the president and recording secretaryt
into the Union constitution will be)
submitted for the assembly's approv-t
al on Thursday night.
In order for 'the amendments to be2
accepted, the Union constitution pro-
vides that at least 600 men students
shall be present that at least 400 or
two-thirds of the members present
vote in favor of the proposal.

For 15 rounds, the black haired

International Aspects Of New Civil
War Figure In New Dispatches'
From Far East
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, May 21.---Tnternational as-
pects of the, civilwarfare in China
again figured today in the news dis-
patches from the East. Word from Pe-
king brought news of statements by
John A. MacMurray, American minis-
ter ,sent to both sides and inf-Irming
them that the United States troops
would be used defensively if Ameri-
can lives were endangered at Peking
and Tientsin. He expressed apprecia-
tion of assurances already given that
Americans would be protected.
The Japanese plan for maintenance
of the status quo in Manhuria went
on apace. The general staff of the
Japanese army ordered all its de-
tachments in Manchuria concentrated
in Mukden where they may be easily
distributed to strategical points on
the Chili border or used to guard the
Mukden railway. These troops will be
augmented by a full brigade which is.
regularly stationed at Dairen. This
body has just been relieved from du-
ty at Tsin-tao.
The Japanese also notified the Pe-
king government that they intend to
disarm any demoralized troops which
may cross the Manchurian-Chili bor-
The whole Japanese plan for Man-
churia is frought with "far-reaching
consequences," said a statement is-
sued at Peking by Chang Tso-lin,
Northern dictator. He hoped the Sou-
therners would gain enough wisdom
to see the "futility of continuing a
doubtful campaign," and of augment-

Dr. Kellogg gave two fundament
rules for good health and a long li:
The first was: Sit, stand, and wa
erect. "Too many people," Dr. K
logg explained, walk with their che
behind and their hips in front. T
abdominal muscles control the dire

Iare kept in good order, they can
do their work properly.'" The seco
rule concerned our food. "Man tri
to eat all sorts of food with a stoma
