LONDON, Jan. 12.-India's future
federal government will combine
features of the British Parliament
and America's Congress if a plan
unfolded today at the round table
conference by Lord Chancellor San-
key is adopted by the MacDonald
The basic assumption of the plan
is that responsibility for the future
government of India will rest on the
Indians themselves and the plan
therefore outlines in general terms
the framework of virtually a domin-
ion status.
Session Approaches End.
The round table conference that
has been in session for two months
at St. James palace, is rushing to
a close with success expected to
crown the efforts of the delegates,
although the work accomplished at
London remains to be accepted in
the restless Asian sub-continent.

Chancellor Describes Plan.
The Lord Chancellor told the con-
ference today that his committee
on federal government did not
claim to have evolved a detailed
plan for a federal constitution, but
it merely determined general prin-
ciples which must be put to the
test of public opinion both in India
and Great Britain. With this basic
reservation a general scheme for a
national federal assembly was out-

Annual Affair.
A meeting of all independent men
students planning to attend the
annual J-Hop Feb. 13, will be held
at 7:30 o'clock tonight in room 304
of the Union.
Organization of the non-frtern;-
ty men into groups for booths at
the Hop will be the principal busi-
ness transacted. Booth chairmen
will be selected at the meeting.
Final arrangements for indepen-
dents at the Hop will be completed
at a meeting a week from today.
The number of booths that will be
allotted to independent groups will
be definitely determined at this
time by the number of students,
who have purchased their tickets,
attending the meeting.
Fraternity booths will be reserved
in order of receipt of lists by the
booth committee. The lists of names
should include only those who have
already purchased tickets, since no
booths will be made up unless 20
paid couples have been registered.

(Ny A esocwted Press)
DETROIT, Jan. 12.-Detroit's job-
bound industrial army was aug-
mented today by 70,000 or more
men who were called back to their
benches and assembly lines after
several weeks of inactivity.
Most of the re-employment was
accounted for at the Rouge plant
of the Ford Motor Co., which had
been idle since an inventory shut
down on Dec. 18, with the exception
of the employment of about 6,500
men on a part-time basis last week.
The Ford company for several
months has been operating three
days a week, eight hours a day, and
the lack of an announced change
from this policy indicated that it
is to be continued. The company
announced that the employes re-
called today brought the total at
the Rouge plant to 75,000, while
32,000 more were ordered back to
work in other parts of the country.
Increased activity at several oth-
er automobile plants also was re-
ported. The Buick Motor Car Co. at
Flint brought its total to 13,500 with
recall of 1,700 men. The Cadillac
Motor Car Co., operating five seven-
hour days a week, reported a nor-
mal force of 6,000.rThe Chevrolet
Motor Co., working two shifts, has
32,000 men on a 32-hour-a-week
The return of the men to work
brought additional pay to several
hundred employes of the street car
system, as extra cars were operated
on lines to the factories.
Optimistic reports have come of
the New York Automobile show,
and statements of industrial lead-
ers that the depression is soon to
be a thing of the past are accepted
at their face value in Detroit.
All announcements by automobile
manufacturers have said that only
former employes will be considered
for positions, and unemployed men
of other cities have been warned
not to come to Detroit seeking jobs

Legislators to Get Document

(Ny Associatcd Pr)
LANSING, Jan. 12. - An in-
crease of $7,000,000 or more a
year in the state property tax
would be required to meet a bud-
get covering state institutions and
departments submitted to Gover-
nor Wilber M. Brucker today by
Former Governor Green and G.
R. Thompson, state budget direc-
The executive will oppose sug-
gested advance. He will seek
instead to cut expenses below pres-
ent levels, he said. Former Gover-
nor Green also declared he does
not recommend the huge appropri-
ations but offers them as necessary
if the state is to continue all its
present activities.
The budget proposes total appro-
priations of more than $96,000,000
for the next biennial period, an
increase of nearly $12,000,000 over
appropriations for the same pur-
poses enacted by the 1929 legisla-
Will Discuss Issue.
It will be placed before members
of the legislature as a guide to their
financial legislation rather than
have a final document setting forth
actual needs. Governor Brucker will
confer with members of the house
and senate finance committees,
Later administration bills, sharply
paring the request of the appropri-
ations, will be introduced probably
by either Representative Gus. T.
Hartman, prospective chairman of
the house ways and means commit-
tee, or Senator Arthur Wood, head
of the senate finance committee.
"The state is in no position to
increase expenses at this time,"
Governor Brucker said. "I have not
studied the tentative budget thor-
oughly. It is certain, however, that
I will not support appropriation
measures calling for an increased
outlay. I believe we can reduce the
costs of many of these departments
and institutions."
Wants Low Taxes.
The governor indicated he will
attempt to hold the state property
tax to its present level or below. If
the tentative budget were adopted
as it stands, the property tax on
~ even the most conservative basis
would have to mount from the
present $29,500,000 to $35,975,985.
The budget optimistically estimates
that more than $7,000,000 in delin-
quent taxes will be collected next
year and the following year. If this
should not occur the next state tax
would have to mount still higher.
It also estimates a yield of $1,500,-
000 a year, from the malt tax but
1 the law probably will be repealed.
