WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 13.-
Continuing its slashing of tariff in-
creases and eimination of proposed
duties on prelis ted commodities as
carried in the House bill, the Sen-
ate today voted 49 to 29 to keep
shingles on the free list and 51 to
24 to restore existing .levics on
Without record vote, it also
eliminated duties on clocks, placed
on the free list logs of fir, spruce,
cedar, and Western hemlock, now
nonduitable at $1 per thousand feet
board measure, and approved re-
tention in the non-dutiable column
of cedar lumber which the House
made more duitable at 25 cents ad
valoram along with shingles. The
vote on shingles disposed of one of
the major controversies in the tar-
iff question. The measure still must
go through another stage of revi-
sion in conference between the
Senate and House.
Senator Jones, Republican, and
Dill, Democrat, both of Washington
who led the drive for retention of
the House duty on shingles, mus-
tered 10 Republicans and 10 Demo-
crats on the final roll call, but only
after they hod proposed the deci-
sion be marde between free shingles
and a 10 per cent rate.
The finance comnittee majority
had proposed retention of shingles
in free category, but when the 10
per cent duty was suggested four
of their number, including Chair-
man Smoot and Senators Edge,
Reed and Shortridge, voted with the'
Washington Senators.

ond speaker on the new Oratorical
association program, is considered
to be the finest orator in' America
today and has often been called a
torch in the minds of his audience.
His lecture tonight will deal with
the progress that is being made in
the theatre world, the trend of the
little theatre and of the repetory
group, and what is likely to be left
the legitimate theatre after the mo-
tion pictures have monopolized the
empire of pure entertainment. He
will also show why he believes that
the theatre is upholding the Shak-
espearean maxim of "holding the
mirror up to life" in spite of a pop-
ular belief that the theatre world
has fallen upon degenerate days.
Has Had Much Experience.
As a dramatist, philosopher and

tions in America, and ,has spoken

His dramatic record is inore fa-
miliar to the American public. He
