Caverly Discusses
Sales Levy Defeat;
Prefers Excise Tax
"In an emergency, a general sales
tax would have.been effective. Con-
sequently I was sorry to see it de-
feated, although in my opinion the
original treasury proposal of an ex-
cise tax on specific industries would
have been more satisfactory," stat-
ed Prof. H. L. Caverly, of the eco-
nomics department, in an interview;
yesterday. The tax was defeated in.
the House of Representatives late'
last week.
-In any judgment on a tax meas-
ure, said Professor Caverly, i t
should be kept in mind that the
government must balance its budg-
et, or must at least take steps in
that direction, in order to maintain
the confidence of banks and -cred-
itors. Some emergency measure
must be taken quickly.
"I would have preferred a series
of excise taxes," he added, "because
such a measure would make pos-
sible a judicious selection of taxable
articles. This measure will un-
doubtedly be given more serious
consideration. A general sales tax
would tend to raise prices of many
articles, with a consequent reduc-
tion of sales volume," he said.
"When the proposal of a general
low-rate sales tax was favored over
a higher-rate excise tax on specific
articles," he said, "I was ready to
give the former substantial approv-
al as an emergency measure. If
Congress now passes a measure as
good as, or better than, a general
tax on sales, that will, be satisfac-
tory. The danger is that no action
may be taken at all."
Kansas Dry Vote

Kansas, the only state whih to

the Literary Digest prohibition bal-
lot, comes within 98 votes of going
wet in the most recent tabulation
released yesterday. The most re-
cent Kansas vote gives 31,993 to the
drys and 31,895 to the wets.
The three to one repeal majority
recorded last week in the voting
was further confirmed in the sev-
enth tabulation revealed yesterday
which gave 56,000 votes for the drys
and 3,715,000 votes for the repeal-

stantly close to the border-line,I

Michigan retains her more than
three to one majority for repeal

ment and 109,425 for repeal.

HOPEWELL, N. J., March 28. -
(-P) - On a mission he considered
so important that he flew nearly
300 miles through storms which had
grounded most other planes, the
dean of a Norfolk (Va.) church
came here today to tell Col. Charles
A. Lindbergh of a "contact made
with the kidnappers" of the flier's
! son.
Afteran hour with the Colonel,
the 'clergyman, the Very Rev. H.
Dobson-Peacock, started home with
the statement there probably would
be another conference with Lind-
bergh within three or four days.
Voices His Optimism.
He declined to discuss the infor -
mation he had passed on to the
father of the child who was stolen
27 days ago, but twice he spoke
of the "optimism" he and two other
prominent Norfolk residents, act-
ing with him as intermediaries,'
have that the missing baby will be
"The conference was the result of
a contact made with the kidnap-
pers," he said.
"Did Col. Lindbergh receive your
information with optimism?" he
was asked.
"I cannot speak for Col. Lind-
bergh," he replied.
He apparently referred to him-
self, John H. Curtis, Norfolk boat{
builder, and Rear Admiral Guy H.
Burrage, retired, who have been
associated since March in efforts+
to secure the return of the child.
Makes Mysterious Trip.
Over the week-end Curtis made
a mysterious airplane trip for the1
purposeof eeting-'the abductors.
His associate, however, did not
make itclear t h i s afternoon
whether the "contact" to which he
referred had been made by Curtis
on this trip or at some earlier
He did, however, deny reports
that he was taking back ransom
money, that he had seen the kid-
napped child, and that he had{
brought to the Lindbergh home a
piece of the baby's clothing as proof
of the identity of the child held by
those with whom the negotiations
have been conducted.
A drizzling rain beat on the home
of the Lindberghs as the Virginian
appeared with what he considered
cheering news'for the parents.

Abolishment of Oath and Land
Tax Sought by Irish;
Parliament to Act.
DUBLIN, Irish Free State, March
28.-(X')-President Eamon de Va-
lera's government found itself for-
tified today, after one of the most
peaceful, but demonstrative Easter
week-ends in a dozen years, to go
ahead with the plan to abolish the
oath of allegiance to King George.
In demonstrations Sunday thou-
sands of men and women, mem-
b ers of the Republican army and
other technically illegal organiza-
tions, sounded a call for an Irish
Republic. They supported de Va-
lera's plan to abolish the oath and
the land annuities, and added that
this was only part of the way they
would go along the road to inde-

Marchers Are Unarmed,
Processions in commemoration
of the Easter revoltw of 1916 were
held throughout Ireland. Those
who took part were unarmed, how-
ever, and the Free State army was
confined to barracks. The men of
the "Republican army" marched
silently in Dublin, with faces set,
but well-behaved.
At the graves of their comrades-
who fell in the revolt 16 years ago
they reiterated their resolve to set
up atRepublic, smash the Anglo-
Irish treaty and remove British in-
terests from Ireland.
At Cavan, where the procession
was half a mile long, Maude Gonne
McBride, "Irish Joan of Arc," de-
clared in an address that "de
Valera is making a great stand
against England, our only enemy
in the world."
The Republican army, in a state-
ment read at the celebration, de-
clared the treaty with England was
imposed by force and was "un-
natural and immortal."
Armed Police on Guard.
Armed police kept peace
throughout northern Ireland where
many Republican demonstrations
also were held. At St. Mary's grave-
yard at Newry, County Down, where
trouble w a s expected, Malachi
Quinn, noted Ulster Republican, an-
nounced that "owing to the pres-
ence of the armed soldiers of Eng-
land" there would be no oration.
At Londonderry, police occupied
the cemetery from midnight on.
A crowd of 500 Republicans gath-
ered in the rear of a church, how-
ever, an address was made by one
of the leaders and prayers were
said for the dead.

Gov. Horton then began a cross
examination. Told the students had
fought to make a study of econom-
c and sociological conditions, he
asked who invited them.
"We were not invited," Hall re-
plied and the governor interpreted
this to mean they were "uninvited

they did not come as "guests" at all.
Horton said if the students were
'deeply isterested" in studying

then the proper thing to do was to
ask permission to go into the mines
and he believed if their purpose was
'egitimate they would be admitted.
