WASHINGTON, Jan. 29.--(P)--

day of thie three directors chosen

corporation put this relief organi-

Senate Adjourns..
Senate bi-party co-operation in
congress will continue through the
vital task of enacting necessary
taxation increases a:d bank aid
legislation.
Between conferences in congress
and action by President Hoover
maintenance of the political truce
was assured today, with a domi-.
nant majority of both Republicans
and Democrats, holding firm to the
job of giving the nation such up-
ward lifts as are within the means
of the national legislature.:.
The senat'e adjourned over the
week-end to permit a new under-
standing on the important banking
revision and depositors' relief bill
produced by Senator Glass (D.,
Va.), to be put into shape.
President Hoover worked out an
arrangement whereby Glass and
Senator Walcott (R., Conn.), will
go into conference with treasury
and Federal Reserve officials to
mould the details.'
To carry on the peace, house
Democrats invited their Republi-
can colleagues to sit down with
them next week to write the new
tax increase bill. Agreement was
reached to ban retroactive increas-
es on taxes applying on 1931 in-
ounes and which are'to be paid
this year as proposed by Secretary

Scientists Approach
Completion of Light
Probe in Califor ia
PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 29.-(AP)
-Experiments begun by scientists
more than 300 years ago to;ascer-
tain the- speed of light seem near
completion here.
The speed- of light zs the yard-
stick of science. Other yardsticks
may warp or be shortened or
l e n g t h e n ed by temperature
changes, but the speed of light is
recognized as constant.
Astronomers measure the dis-
tance from the earth to stars and
planets by it, using "light years,"
the distance light would travel in a
year, but they have never been able
accurately to reduce a light year
to miles.

worth of lumber annually, accord-
ing to Prof. Ernest V. Jotter, of the
forestry school, w h o discussed
"Things that Michigan P e o p 1e
Should Know about Their Forests"
yesterday afternoon over the Uni-
versity broadcasting station. E
In return for the 100 billion feet
of lumber which went out of Mich-
igan, when lumbering was at its
peak, he said, three million dollars
was brought back into the state.
This sum "is ten times the value
of all the gold, taken from Alaska
and more than twice the value of
gold produced in California.
Counties having mostly cut-over
land receive more money from the
state than they receive in taxes,
Jotter went on to say. As this land
could be turned into forest land,
every citizen of Michigan should
be vitally interested in reforesting
this area as it would help decrease
state taxes.
More than 4,000 fires burned over
a quarter of a million acres of for-
est land last year, Professor Potter
stated. As these were man-caused
fires, citizens should be more inter-
ested in 'fire pjevention.
Over nine million people regis-
tered in our state parks last year,
while pursuing some form of out-
door recreation, Professor Jotter
said. This tourist trade has become
one of the states leading indus-
tries, and will probably grow in the
near future. Effort should be made,'
therefore, to preserve our forest'
land.
Through planned and established
forestry policies, Michigan can be
brought back to one of the leading
lumbering states, he declared.

When Lewis Carroll, whose 100th1
birthday the world is celebrating
this week, created Alice, the White
Knight, the Mad Hatter, and all
the other characters in his "Alice in
Wonderland" books, he created the
only realErglish mythology that
exists today, according to Prof.
Howard M. Jones, English profes-
sor of Victorian Literature.
Today the people who lived with
Alice are as real and as far from
mortal as were the gods and god-
desses of ancient days. This imr-
pression of them is enhanced a
great deal by the delightfully ima-
ginary illustrations that John Ter-
niel drew for the first edition. And
it is as absurd, Professor Jones said,
to attempt to draw anew illustra-
tions for the story, as it is to change
the characters themselves, for along
with the story myth go those ab-
surd creatures of Terniel.
In an age of wit, humor, and idio-
syncracies, said Professor Jones,
Lewis Carroll raised the expression
of nonsense to a fine art. And it is
a mistake to take the absurdities of
Alice in Wonderland and the other
books as satire or thoughtful mock-
ery, for nonsense, at which Carroll
excelled, is merely the lack of sense.
The extreme effectiveness of these
I stories lies in their sober, serious
atmosphre which wveals nothing
but a complete absence of sense.
Along with his supreme expres-
sion of nonsense, Lewis Carroll used
a prose style that defies criticism}
Professor Jones went on to say and
his poetry possesses that madden-
ing singability that should be the
very essense of nonsensical poetry.
The prose has that haunting quality

it and feel that there is absolutely
notjiing wanting.
Lewhs Carroll is completely Eng-
lish, Professor Jones concluded, and
his creations are distinctly that of
an Englishman. Attempts to trans-
late his stories into foreign lan-
guages have invariably resulted in
a loss of the charm and delightful-
ness with which they all abound.
Ten Per Cent Wage
Slash Accepted by
Rail Labor Unions
CHICAGO, Jan. 29.-(AP)-A vol-
untary 10 per cent wage reduction
for one year for 1,900,000 union rail]
workers appeaped certain today
with announcement that authoriza-
tion to conclude such an agreement
had been given labor executives.
Union representatives said they
'would meet with ,a committee of
nine railroad presidents today for
formal negotiation of the reduction
which the 20-billion-dollar rail in-
dustry considers vital to restoration
of its prosperity.
A stipulation was made that the
basic wage rate should be un-
changed and the reduction be ob-
tamed through a deduction from
the salary checks of workers. At
the end of a year the previous wage
scale is to be restored unless an
agreement to the contrary is made
before that time.
In return for the reduction the
railroads will guarantee to rehire
as many of the 600,000 jobless union
workers as possible and other con-
cessions to improve employment
conditions will be made.

Plan Merger of Ideas.
A inerger of ideas contained in
dills by Senator Thomas (R., Ida.),
and Vandenberg (R., Mich.,) with
that contained in the Glass meas-
u re is contemplated. Likewise,
some modifications in the farrea.ch-
ing reforms in the national bank-
ing law originally contemplated by
the Glass measure is planned.
It is a virtual certainty now that
taxpayers will be saved from hav-
ing to shell out more money than
last year when they go to pay their
income tax in March.
Decision of both Democrats and
Republicans on the house ways and
means committee to ban retroac-
tive tax plans urged by the treas-
ury is likely to control action all
through congress after the big tax-
increase program is drafted.
This treasury proposal was ap-
parently the most cordially dislik-
ed of all the plans advanced to ob-
tain more badly-needed reserve
for the government.
Bromage to Address
Grand Rapids Rotary
Prof. Arthur W. Bromage, of the
Political Science department, is to
deliver a lecture on "County gov-
ernment in Michigan" before the
members of the Grand Rapids
Rotary club Thursday noon, Feb.
11, at the Pantlind hotel, Grand
Rapids. The lecture is to be given
as part of the University Extension
service.

Galilei Galileo, Italian scientist, .
made, one of the first estimates of
light's ,speed by flashing lantern
light back and forth across hall-
tops. Employing much the same.
principle, Dr. Albert A. .Michelson,
American physicist, used. mirrors
to flash light from mountain top to
mountain top near here in 1927
and found it traveled 186,284 miles
per second.
This value was accepted by sci-
entists, but Mr. Michelson felt a
still more accurate measurement
could be made.
He had a mile-long tube of cor-
cugated steel 36 inches in diameter
built on the Irving ranch near San-
ta' Ana, Calif. It 'was sealed, re-
duced to a near vacuum and light
from an arc lamp flashed back and
forth through it by mirrors.
Dr. Michelson, who was 79 years
old, died last May before the first
five of his observations were com-
pleted.
Dr. F. G. Pease of Mount Wil-
son observatory and Fred Pearson
of University of Chicago, who aided
him, will resume the observations
Feb. 1.

Laporte to Continue
Research in Europe
Continuing with his research on
the theory of the electron, Prof.
Otto Laporte will spend next se-
mester in Munich, Zurich, and Ut-
recht, he stated yesterday. In go-
ing to Europe, Professor 'Laporte
will repay the visits of Professor
Pauli and Professor Kramers, fa-
mous physicists who lectured here
last summer.
Concerning modern physics Pro-
fessor Laporte said, "Reconcilia-
tion of q i~'ituAm mechanics and re-
lativity is one of the greatest prob-
lems which have faced physics dur-
ing the last two decades."
