Officiall Claims Auto Industry
Is Big Aid to Business
in All Fields.
DETROIT, March 30.-(/P)-Alvan
MacCauley, president of the Na-
tional Automobile Chamber of
Commerce, indicated today that the
automobile* industry will make a
vigorous fight against the proposed
manufacturing tax on motor cars.
The opposition to the tax, he said,
will be based on the claim that the
automobile industry is doing more
"to break the buying deadlock than
any other American industry." The
industry feels, he said, that when
congress proposes the excise tax onC
motor cars it is "aiming a blow at
"The action of the house," he
added, "constitutes a serious wet
blanket on our business in the face
of our efforts to help restore Amer-
ican prosperity. The action could
not have come at a worse time."
He said the automobile industry's,
products last year paid a total of
$1,020,000,000 in all forms of taxa-
tion and that "the car on the road
is taxed 18 per cent of its present

capable' of ,elf-government, Dr.
Frederick B. Fisher, First Metho-
dist Episcopal church, pointed out
to members of Alpha Nu and their
guests Zeta Phi Eta in his address
Tuesday in theAlpha Nu room in

new feeling of religious toleration
existant in the natives.
At the conclusion of the talk an
open discussion, was held during
which questions on the present po-
litical situation in India were con-
sidered by Dr. Fisher.'
in Cancer Cases
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., March 30.-(/P)
-Successful revival of the use of
selenium, a rare element once re-
j ected by eminent scientists as a
treatment for cancer, is claimed by
the research workers after six years
of patient experiments.
The three are Dr. R. M. Parr, wo-
man professor of chemistry at Uni-
versity of Illinois; Dr. C. E. Bucher,
physician and surgeon, and Dr. R.
S. Funk, woman bacteriologist as-
sociated with the latter.
An announcement they made
Tuesday said their combined treat- C
ment of a selenium solution, X-ray.,
or radium and a diet rich, in vita
mins not only served to check can-
cer in patients but when the disease1
was attacked in early stages, com-
pletely eradicated it.I
While expressing belief, however,
that the treatment might be of,
great benefit in combatting the
malady, the scientists w a r n e d
against undue enthusiasm, as its
development was still in its experi-
mental stages and much work re-
mained to be done.
A similar observation came at,
Chicago from Dr. Morris Fishbein,
editor of the Journal of the Ameri-
can Medical association. He said
if the treatment proves beneficial,
it will be another "forward step,"
but "there remains too much to
be established to warrant unquali-
Wasserman, Keysser and other
scientists used selenium in fight-
ing cancer tissues but discarded it
in every case because while it ef-
fectively destroyed cancer cells in
rats they used for their experi-
ments, it also killed most of the
Dr. Parr a n d her associates
worked the selenium into hitherto
unused combinations; diluted it
greatly and said they found when
injected into a patient's blood, their
new solution not only arrested the
growth of cancerous tissue but in
many cases destroyed it, this with-
out harmful effects to the patient.
They resorted to the X-ray or ra-
dium, a known treatment for can-
cer, in their experiments, and
found, they said, that the solution
of selenium acted as a reflective
agent when the rays were applied,
creating secondary radium rays.

at Business Banquet
Shirley W. Smith, vice-president
and secretary, will be the speaker
at the annual smoker of the Jun-

which will @e held at 7:30 o'clockI
tonight at the Union..

staged by the junior class, will be

CEASE THIS WEEK
University Week-Day Programs
to Be Discontinued
After April 1.
Week-day broadcasts from the
University of Michigan will cessc
Friday, April 1, for the current
school year. Saturday evening and
Sunday afternoon programs will
continue until May 7.
The reason for discontinuing the
radio programs at this time of year
is the fact that Eastern stations
change time, which necessitates a
revision of all radio schedules.
The program this afternoon will
be directed to the high school sen-
iors of Michigan. Pres. Alexander G.
Ruthven, Registrar Ira M. Smith,
Prof. Philip Bursley, counselor to
new students, and Dean Alice Lloyd
will give short talks for the benefit
of those who plan on entering the
University next fall.
Faculty members of the engi-
neering school gave a similar pro-
gram last year. Upon investigating
last fall they discovered that 12 per
cent of the students enrolled had
heard the talk and found it of aid
upon entering the University.
Work has been begun on the Uni-
versity broadcasting station bulle-
tin, which will contain those talks
in most demand. It will be sent to
all school libraries in Michigan, and
to all listeners who request it, free
The broadcasting' station may
give two fifteen minute porgrams
next year instead of the half-hour
program given this year. Requests
from high schools for special pro-
grams makes it appear advisable.
Due to the success of the band
class instructions given by Prof.
Joseph E. Maddy, additional pro-
grams #ill probably be added to
next year's schedule.
