appropriation was passed late to-
day by the Senate as administra-

for a harmony relief program.
The Senate struck from the bill
the provision giving President Hoo-
ver a free hand in the use of the
fund, on motion of Senator Robin-
son, of Arkansas, the Democratic
leader. This and other amend-
ments, including an addition of
$5,000,000 to the $110,000,000 voted
by the House, required reconsider-

Republicans Confer.
As the Democratic storm in the
Senate against Mr. Hoover's denun-

relief measures subsided, the Re-
publicans went into conference to

Earlier, President Hoover com-
municated with Senator Watson, of
Indiana, the Republican leader, ex-
pessing a desire to send his ex-
perts before Congress to back up
the administration's contentions on
the extent of the necessity for re-
lief legislation. Watson called a
conference of party leaders when
discord developed in the Republi-
can ranks. Some held the view that
Mr. Hoover should have consulted
his paity chieftans before issuing
the statement he did. Others felt
the party should have given a more
vigorous defense to the Democratic

At the conference, Watson called

Fingerle Estimates Loss From
Water, Flames at $15,000.
Fire which broke out from some
unknowni source at 3 o'clock Thurs-
day morning in C. J. Fingerle's Den
restaurant at 1108 S. University
avenue, caused damage, estimated
by Fingerle at $15,000, before fire-
men could check it. The building
is entirely covered by insurance.
According to Fingerle, no one was
inside when a night police patrol-
man noticed smoke coming from
the building. The officer immedi-
ately called the fire department
and Fingerle.
A large part of the damage was
caused by water, since the fire it-
self was confined to an addition on
the west side of the building. Walls
and decorations throughout this
part of the restaurant were drench-
ed by water from the fire depart-
ment's hoses, which flooded the en-
tire building.

New Rule to Continue
Throughout Island
for 60 Days.
Professional, Business
Men Pledge Support
to Students.
(By Associated Press)
HAVANA, Dec. 11.- Amid new
disorders by students and with ru-
mors buzzing through the city that
he soon would resign, President
Machado today suspended consti-
tutional guarantees throughout the
whole of Cuba.
This is tantamount to martial
law and is similar to the suspension
decreed in Havana and environs
which ended last month. Both were
authorized by Congress after much
debate, but whereas the first decree
was confined to the capital and for
only 20 days, the suspension in-
voked today will run for 60 days
over the entire island.
Student Riots Continue.
Student activities not only con-
tinued but increased, meanwhile,
and the sound of firing was heard
in the streets as police attempted
to break up demonstrations. Num-
bers of business and professional
men, graduates of the national uni-
versity, pledged their support to
the rioting undergraduates.
The president's action followed
upon a secret meeting of the cabi-
net at which American Ambassador
Harry S. Guggenheim was reported
to be present, and it 'was known
that important developments were
Havana, at the same time, was
swimming in a flood of rumors.
There were numerous reports' the
president would resign, another
that he already had placed his
resignation in the hands of the su-
preme court, and still another that
Ambassador Guggenheim had sum-
moned two American cruisers from
the United States naval base at
Guantanamo. All were denied.
Attorney General Resigns.
Complicating the situation, and
adding to several cabinet changes
during the week, was the resigna-
tion of Miguel Angel Campa, as at-
torney general.
The latest developments climaxed
a summer of unrest in Cuba, with
disorders and demonstrations grow-
ing since the Congressional elec-
tions of last month. Hundreds of
students, who are prime movers in
all the disturbances, have been ar-
rested in various parts of the island.
Jose Iturbi Will Present Sixth
of Choral Union Programs
at Hill Auditorium.
Jose Iturbi, Spanish pianist, will
present the sixth of the series of
Choral Union concerts at 8:15
o'clock tonight at Hill auditorium.
"Mr. Iturbi," said Dr. Charles
Sink, president of the School of
Music, "came to America for a few
concerts last season, and was looked

upon as the musical sensation of
the year. At his debut recital in
Carnegie hall, a furor was created
and he was obliged to respond to
encores and returns to the stage
many times, and it was nearly mid-
night before the audience finally
let him leave. Later he appeared
with the orchestra in New York and
Chicago, where similar ovations
were had. For his Ann Arbor con-
cert he has chosen the following
Sonata in A major, by Mozart;
Etudes symphoniques, by . Schu-
mann; Waltz, two Etudes and Polo-
naise by Chopin; Ballade and
Rhapsody by Brahms; L'Ile Joyeuse
by DeBussy; Navarra by Albeniz;
and El Vito, written in his honor,
by Infante. The last number will
be given for the first time tonight.
