$21,O0 0 Measure for Soldier
Hospital Given Approval

WASHINGTON,F'te .. 21.--An-
other veterans' measure, authoriz-
ing $20,887,000 for new hospital
construction, was sent through the
Senate today without a record vote
and went to the House.
The measure was introducedb3
Chairman Smoot of the finance
committee as a substitute for twc
House bills authorizing approxi-
mately $15,000,000 for specified pro-
jects throughout the country. It
would leave the locations of the
new institutions and additions to
the veterans' administration, the
federal of hospitalization, and the
president.
On motion of Senator LaFollette,
Republican, Wisconsin, the Senate
eliminated a provision to reduec
veterans' compensation and allow-
ances 50 per cent while undergoing
hospital treatment.
Veterans' Administrator H i n e s
had recommended this to discour-
age veterans from remaining inj
hospitals and soldiers homes after
they are able to work.
The $20,877,000 authorization is
designed to meet the hospital needs
of veterans for the next four years.

(Py Associated Press)
BAY CITY, Feb. 21.-William
L. Clements, Bay City, member
of the Board of Regents of the
University of Michigan, stated to
the Bay City Daily Times Satur-
day that the University will face
an institutional "crisis" if the
state administration's proposal to
cut the University's mill tax by
nearly half a million dollars is en-
acted.
Fears Political Influence.
He also charged "if the plan is
enacted, the University, in spite
of all, will undoubtedly become a
oolitical appendage," and that it
'will be forced to depend upon
special appropriations which in
turn are often dependent upon
political complexion.
"For some reason or other," he
added, "thererhave been attempts
luring recent years on the part of
politicians to get a hand into the
University. This has been particu-
larly noticeable (luring the past
two administrations.
University's Welfare at Stake.
"Taking the welfare of the Uni-
versity at heart, the result of suc-
cess in such an attempt would be
obvious."

being of the University, as an in-

was announced yesterday by Gil-

George Lambrecht, orchestra chair-

Tickets for the dance will be five
dollars.
The orchestra has played at many
other college affairs, among them
;everal at Princeton, Pennsylvania,
Amherst, Cornell, Vanderbilt and
Washington and Lee.
Jack Richmond is the well known
singer of this 14-piece band. "Their
style," stated Mursley, "is what
musicians would term a hot band,
but they do not rely on this type
of music entirely. Some of the best
music they play, is their waltzes.
'Perhaps no orchestra in such a
short time has ever become so po-
pular as Casa Loma without the
use of radio. Their popularity every-
where is due to the fact that they
have played nearly everywhere and
in each instance have been so well
liked that they have always been

in demand for a return engage-

Bursley also stated that plans for
the decorations would be announc-
