When the plaster work is com-

The glazing in the building has

The uprising of hungry Arkansasj
farmers who stormed the town of
England demanding food last Sat-
urday, was called to the attention
of the Senate by Senator Caraway,
Democrat, Arkansas, in urging the
additional $15,000,000. It was ap-
proved without a record vote over
the protest of Chairman Jones, of
the appropriations committee, that
a revival of this controversy meant
indefinitt delay in getting the ap-
propriation to the farmers.
Tomorrow the Senate appropri-
ations committee will begin its own
inquiry into the unemployment and]
drought situations. John Barton
Payne, chairman of the Red Cross,
will be the first witness. Adminis-
tration leaders contend the Red
Cross and other organizations
should relieve human distress.
Amendment Accepted.
The Senate also accepted without
debate or roll call an amendment
by Senator Black, Democrat, Ala-
bama, providing thrY the loan
allowed under the drought relief
bill be extended to farmers without
regard to county boundaries or geo-
graphical restrictions.
The House once before rejected'
the Senate's proposal for $60,000,-
000, for drought relief with the pro-
vision that $15,000,000 be available
for food loans.
SAVA9NNAH STEAM ERA
SINKS ARMY BARGE
Dredge 'Raritan' Is Rammed ;n
New York Harbor; Boat
Rescues Crew.
(By Associae dPress)
NEW YORK, Jan. 5.-In an early
morning haze that hung over the!
entrance to New York's harbor, the
United States army dredge Rarit.an'
was sunk today by the Savannah
liner City of Moitgomery. The army I
boat went down in 11 minutes, but
the 57 officers and men aboard were
saved.
The loss of the Raritan was esti-
mated at $191,000 but army officials
said she would cost $1,000,000 to re-
place. The liner's bow was deeply
dented at the water line, but she
able to make her pier unassisted.
Captain John Peterson, comman-
der of the dredge, was slightly in-
j ured.
The fact that no lives were lost
probably was due to the timely
warning given by Samuel S. Watts,
of Southport, N. C., third mate of
the Raritan. He was on the bridge
and when he saw a collisionbwas
inevitable he ordered the boats
manned.
Fifty-two men of the crew put
over the side in life boats and were
picked up by the New York Central

The pockets of the early legisla-
tive arrivals bulged with bills, many
of them relating to the governmen-
tal financing. Inasmuch as the
state accounting division blames
the deficit in state funds upon the
inability of taxpayers to pay, pro-
posed measures designed to slash
tax expenses in not only the state
government but in political sub-
divisions were contemplated.
Whether the-usual deficiency ap-
propriation could cover outstand-
ing state obligations will be sought
by Governor Wilbur M. Brucker will,
not be definitely revealed until he
delivers his message to the legisla-
ture Thursday. He has pledged
himself to ask the legislature to
hold appropriations to a minimum.
He alsos will seek to relieve the
burden on taxpayers by expanding
the property tax system to include
personal property which in many
cases now escape taxation.
Forsythe Re-Elected
Student Health Head
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director
of the University Health Service,
was for the second time elected
president of the American Student
Health association at its eleventh
annual conference in New York city
Dec. 29 and 30.
More than 100 health officials
from many colleges throughout the
country attended.
Dr. John Sundwall, Dr. Margaret
Bell, Dr. Helene E. Schutz and Dr.
Forsythe comprised the Michigan
delegation.
The maintenance of health as
one of the greatest factors in the
development of the student, was
the general topic for discussion at
the convention.

American Colleges to be
Topic of Speech,
"Supervision of Non-Curricular
Activities" in 250 colleges and uni-
versities of the United States will
serve as the topic for the Univer-
sity lecture to be given at 4:15
Thursday in Room D, Alumni Mem-
orial hall by James H. McBurney
of the University Speech depart-,
ment. The lecture, and open forum
that will follow, is being sponsored
by the Student Christian associa-
tion under the chairmanship of
William Kearns, '32.
Mr. McBurney's talk will reveal
the reports received from more
than one-half of all the universi-
ties and colleges in the country who
received questionnaires sent last
month to their respective deans of
students. Having as his objective
the determination of administra-
tive control of student activity and
social life, and evaluation of stu-
dent attempt to regulate their ownI
school life, Mr. McBurney will an-
swer his own questionnaire with
answers received from the various
colleges, especially comparing the
reports'from Big 10 universities and
mentioning peculiarities of admin-
istration in various schools.
The inquiry into the extent and
character of supervision of under-
graduates in certain of their non-
curricula activities embraced such
topics as regulation of fraternities
and sororities, student self-govern-
ment, housing supervision, scholas-
tic requirements for participation
in activities, and supervision of the
student's personal habits. Ques-
tions touched upon university rec-
ognition of student responsibility at
their own parties, upon deferred
fraternity rushing, upon the possi-
bility of official discipline to stu-
dents indulging in intoxicating liq-
li-uors.

WOODCOCK MAKES PLEA
Hearing on New Jersey Decision
Postponed to April
by Supreme Court.
(3vAssoc'ated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 5.-A move
to press 130 new federal dry agents
into immediate service reached the
floor of the House today, while
Supreme Court, a short distance
away, was entertaining a petition!I
that it postpone until April 15its!
hearing of the New Jersey decision
holding the Eighteenth Amendment
invalid.
A little later the motion of Soli-
citor General Thacher that the
widely-publicized ruling of Federal
Judge Clark be given the earliest
possible hearing also was filed with
the court.
Answer Deferred.
Although the high tribunal de-
'erred its answer to the conflicting
pleas, probably until next Monday,
it did move to settle a long stand-
ing minor prohibition controversy.
It ruled illegal the federal dry raid
upon the offices of the Go-Bart
imprting Company of New York,
in June 1929.
Prohibition Director Woodcock's
request for additional dry agents
to put to work before July 1, was,
contained in the first deficiency bill
reported to the House by its appro-
priations committee. The measure
asked for $543,370 for prohibition
and would put 257 additional prohi-
bition workers in the field, approxi-
mately half of them agents.
500 Agents Asked.
At the same time it was disclosed
that in Woodcock's testimony be-
fore the appropriations committee
he had announced of these dry offi-
cers 25 would be assigned to the
New York district; 21 to the Illi- i
nois district; and 18 to the Pennsyl-
vania, Delaware and New Jersey
area. The other 12 prohibition dist-
ricts would draw smaller comple-
ments. The men would be the first
of the 500 new agents Woodcock
had requested.
"Our organization right now is
depleted in agents' places," he said.
"We have about 1,400 today. That
is probably a great deal short of
what is a normal complement. This
130 is the estimate of the number
we can get in and get appointed."
District of Columbia Supreme
Court to Make Wholesale
Production Possible.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 5-The legal
restraint placed on large packing
groups by the government was
loosened today in the District of
Columbia Supreme Court to allow I
them to manufacture and sell at
wholesale virtually all classes oil
food.
The packers also sought permis-
sion to sell themr products at retail
but this was denied by Justice Jen-
nings Bailey. Ie also left intact
that part of the decree which pro-
hibited them from having an inter-
est in stockyards, terminal rail-
roads and market periodicals.
The government in 1920 charged
the Armour, Swift, Wilson, Morris,
and Cudahy packing companies
with a virtual monopoly ef the
meat market and began court ac-
tion which was dropped when the
packers agreed to confine them-
selves exclusively to handling meat.
They have been trying to get the
decree lifted or modified since. The
case finally went to the Supreme

Court where the decree was upheld.!

Jacques Joffre, the "defender of
Paris," as he will go down in his-
tory, lay in state today to receive
homage from the people of France
that has rarely, perhaps, been sur-
passed in his country's annals. I
All knew beforehand that mag-
nificent manifestations of respect!
would be paid beside the bier of the
man who was almost an idol of the
French masses, but the number of
Frenchmen and Frenchwomen who
poured from their homes today to!
honor him exceeded all forecast. I
The crowd began to take form at
dawn and slowly, as the day ad-
vanced, it grew until just before
nightfall it became a vast multitude
which at one moment got out of,
bounds and women were knocked
down and trampled upon before or-
der was restored.
At first a single line, the stream
of those who filed through the
portals of France's military school
to pause for a moment beside thel
body of the old warrior, grew 20
deep and stretched from the en-
trance of the school nearly a quar-
ter of a mile away across the
Champ de Mars.
There were thousands of them
and one of the most touching trib-'
utes was that of the hundreds of
children who joined in the solemn
march. It was a dreary wait but
the marshal's countrymen stood pa-
tiently with little to say.
