Senators Will Take Up Naval
Appropriations Bill On
(Dy Associated Pres)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 15.-Presi-
dent Coolidge's decision to initiatel
the 16 warships construction pro-
gram in the fiscal year beginningt
July 1, instead of at the presentt
time was reached under an under-
standing from Iouse and Senate'
leaders that no funds were desired
for this work during the current
fiscal year.
yThe views of the chief executive
became known today almost si-
multaneously with a recommenda-
tion to the Senate by its appropria-
t ions committee that $700,000 be
provided immediately in the Navy
department supply bill to com-
mence building of the first six of
the warships. The committee pro-
posed that of the $12,370,000 re-
quested by President Coolidge to
start the building program, $700,-
0 ooobehallocated for work ,during
the current fiscal period which
continues until July 1.
Meanwhile, at the other end of1
the capital, a move was launchedt
during the day looking to a boosta
in the amount suggested by the '
President to initiate the program.,
Chairman Britten of the Houset
naval committee, announced that
as soon as the Senate has com-
pleted work on the Navy supply bill,
swhich carries cruiser appropria-.
lons, he would institute an inquiry
to determine if the budget rule did
not "arbitrarily" cut down the ap--
propriation prbposed by 'the Navya
department for getting the building
program under way.-
Senators Appear Satisfied f
Senate naval advocates, however,k
appeared satisfied -today with the
$12,370,000 appropriation. They
contend that the big thing is tot
get the program started immedi-
ately. To that end the appropria-
tions committee endorsed the pro-~
posal of its sub-committee to makek
$700,000 of the appropriation m-
mediately available.t
Mr. Coolidge's belief that Con-1
gressional leaders were not desirous
of funds for the present year was
based upon conferences with mem-c
bers of the House and Senate.
Howver, his budget recommen-
dation of funds for the next fiscal
year was interpreted in some quar-
ters to forestall construction at the
present, despite a provision of the
new construction act that five
cruisers be laid down before 1
July 1.
He believes it makes little differ-
ence whether five of the vessels are
started in June of this year andl
five more in June of 1930 or the
first five in September of this year
and the second five in September
of 1930. He feels that what little
difference as. this would make
would be lessened if construction is
begun in July of this year and
next year respectively.
The amount of appropriation
which he recommended was in ac-

cordance with his understanding
of what would be satisfactory to
the Navy department.
In the Senate, there has been
fear of a fight against any ap-
propriation for the' cruisers, but
leaders were confident tonight of
getting the Navy department bill
through early next week. It will
be taken up tomorrow or Monday.
Dr. Tehyi Hsieh, "The Teddy
Roosevelt of China," will speak
here Sunday evening at 6:30 o'clock,,
before the Student Fellowship
group of the Congregational
church. Dr. Hsieh's address will be
open to the public, following the
fellowship supper at 5:30 o'clock,
the speech to begin an hour later.;

WASHINGTON, Feb. 15.-A p-o-
posal that "lame ducks" be barred
from eligibility for federal appoin-
tive jobs for two years after their
defeat at the polls was presented
to Congress today by Senator Dill,
Democrat, Washington.
The senator in submitting the bill
denied that it was aimed at any;
particular individual. The meas-
ure also would apply to a mem-
ber of one House of Congress who
gave up his seat in that body to
stand for election to the other
house and who was unsuccessful in
his attempt.

Record Shows Nine Victories Out
Of Ten Starts; State Normal
Chalks Up Only Loss
By Morris Quinn
After trailing their opponents for
the first five minutes of the sec-
ond period, Michigan's Junior
Varsity basketball team rallied to
overcome a two point lead and ring
down the curtain on their 1928-29
schedule with a 25-20 victory over
Detroit City college last night in
the field house. %
It was the ninth success for the
Wolf Cubs in ten starts, Michigan
State. Normal college having been
the only combination to chalk up
a win over them. The team's show-
ing was all thei more creditable in
view of the fact that three of the
players who faced the Tartars in
Dettroit last month, Lovell, Barley,
and Cushing, did not perform, hav-
ing made the trip to Minneapolis
with the Varsity squad.
With the single exception of the
first few minutes of play when the
invaders were leading 4-2, the
Wolves maintained an edge over
thee Tartars throughout the first
half, the period ending with the
score 16-11 in Michigan's favor.
The Wolverine play was marred by
inaccurate passing and faulty ball
handling during this portion of the
Michigan Scores First
Michigan drew first blood when
Weinsteim dribbled through the
Tartar defense for a short shot,
but Sieger offset this advantage by-
dropping in a basket from close
range and following with a pair of
penalty shots when he was fouled
in making the shot.
Joe Downing was inserted into
the Michigan lineup at forward
and the Maize and Blue offense be-
gan to function more smoothly. On
successive, plays Butch Lytle drib-
bled past Jones to sink a pair of
short shots. Jones registered an-
other slap-shot after Schweizer
nissed a free throw to pare the
Wolverine margin to 11-9.
Michigan's lead was temporarily
increased when ',Whittle dribbled
in for a short counter, but Sieger
and Schweizer scored a free throw
apiece to offset the advanthge.
Downing contributed a free throw
after being fouled by Sieger and
Weinstein dribbled through the
Tartar defense for another short
shot as the half ended with the
score 16-11, Michigan.
City College Rallies
City College opened the scoring
activities after the recess, Crane
making a nice basket from the foul
line. It was five minutes before
the Wolves finally managed to
score from the field, Slagle count-
ing on a difficult overhead attempt
after dribbling in from the foul
Downing spread the meshes with
a "long tom" from beyond the foul
line to keep the Wolves in the run-
ning and free throws by Weinstein
gave them a three-point margin.
Downing scored the final basket of

the game on a perfect overhead
shot from short range.
'Weinstein with two field goals
and five free throws was the high
point man of the game. Captain
Evans and Schweizer of City Col-
lege tied for second honors with six
points apiece. The rest of the Wol-
verine points were well divided,
everyone except Balsamo ~and
Dougal scoring at least once from
the field.
