MADRID, April 22.-(/P)-News
that the United States had recog-
nized the Spanish republic caused
a generally favorable impression to-
day in government circles and
among the people.
In announcing the fact to the
cabinet, Foreign Minister Alej andlro
Lerroux said:
"The United States withheld rec-
ognition, naturally enough, until
the Spanish-American and Euro-
pean countries closest to Spain,
England, had recognized us. Now
the United States has recognized us
because of the good reports on the
republic sent by.Am b a s s a d o r
Laughlin." .
Announcement -Received.
The announcement 'of recognition
was received by the government at,
about the same time the American
embassy gt word from' the statek
department in Washington. IIt is1

At the conclusion, the ambassa-
dor declined to .inake a statement.
except to say "I have placed the I
matter in the hands of the presi- 1

a note to all Spanish newspapers
saying that the government viewsl
with grave displeasure such articles
as are calculated without founda-
tion to cause ill feeling between
friendly governments.
The president apologized for the
newspaper, saying that diplomats
in Madrid had the full confidence of;
their governments and of the re-;
public and expressed the opinionf
that journalists responsible for suchc
unfounded statements were servingc
the republican cause poorly. -

afternoon received word that Capt.
Frank Hawks, racing back on a
round trip flight between here and

told the Associated Press, "I am not
trying to stunt but I want to show
European flyers what we have been
doing in the United States. In order
to do this I must set records for
distances with which they are fa-

If so, he will make his recommen-

Curtailment of
Activities.
LANSING, Apr. 22.-('P)-The
house today sent to the senate the
companion Callaghan bills to-
limit the University of Michigan
to a mill tax appropriation of $4,-
500,000 a year and Michigan State
College to- $1,500,00 a year. The
measures passed without amend-
rent in the lower branch by the
identical vote of 72 to 17. 1-
In contrast with the fiery ses-
sion in committee of the whole
Tuesday the bill to limit the Uni-
versity appropriation was passed,
without debate. The membership
rejected an amendment offered by
Representative Arthur C. MacKin--
non, of Bay City, that the appro-
priation for Michigan State college
be increased to $1,554,000.
MacKinnon Appeals.
Representative MacKinnon, for-
mer president of the Michigan
State college alumni association, de-
clared that his amendment repre-
sented the same figure as contamied
in the administration budget-
He said any reduction would lead
to a serious curtailment of activi-
ties and appealed to the several
members to support the institution,
which he termed "the best method
of farm relief in the state."
Opponents of the increase for
the agricultural college pleaded for
equal fairness to the state univer-
sity and state college. "I am a far-
mer and I think Michigan State
college is a great institution, but
they should take their medicine
with therest of them," Representa
tive John P. Espie said.
Alumni Oppose Bill.
The final vote found most of the
younger University alumni oppos-
ing each bill. A peculiar turn of the
roll call brought a split in the house

sentatives Darin and Frey support-
ing the limitation on University
appropriations a n d Representa-
tives Barnard, Hatch and Pack op-

Opponents of the bill will carry
their fight to the senate where they
claim a much better chance of de-
feating them or increasing the
amount of the appropriations.
