day. He has chosen as his speech "A
Biologist Looks at Peace."
The Rev. Howard R. Chapman has
been selected to give the invocation
and benediction. The program will
open with an organ selection by Prof.

by Dr. Frank E. Robbins, assistant to
President Ruthven. This year faculty
members attending the former will
assemble in Natural Science Building

faculty members, and those receiving
honorary degrees will assemble before
the ceremony in designated rooms in

Prosecution To Present
No Evidence, Accepting
All Jurors As Drawn
Defendant Is Quiet;
Mother Looks On
Supporters Hope Acquittal
Will Get Mooney Pardon
From Old Conviction
SAN FRANCISCO, May 23.-(A')-
Tom Mooney's "new deal," a long-
hoped for trial on an old indictment
in connection with the bombing of
the 1916 Preparedness Day parade,
got under way today, with the first
session devoted to an unsuccessful
attempt to get a jury from the ini-
tial panel of 46.
As strange a trial as ever a jury
heard, with the prosecution willing-
ly accepting jurors as drawn and in-
tending to present no evidence, the
procecdings moved briskly along in
the court of Superior Judge Louis H.
There was Mooney, florid and
quiet, with, his attorneys headed by
the veteran Frank P. Walsh. Among
the spectators was the aged mother,
Mary Mooney, and Mooney's wife,
Mooney had been brought to the
county jail here a few days ago from,
San Quentin, where he has been
serving a life sentence for convic-
tion at his first trial for bombing the
1916 parade, which resulted in loss
of 10 lives.
Straight through, without any time
out for lunch, until the panel had
been exhausted, was the rigor that
Judge Ward applied to the opening
day of the trial. When adjournment
was taken for the day, 35 of the 46
talismen in the panel had been ex-
cused either for cause or by peremp-
tory challenge. Of the 11 remaining
in the jury box, seven were women.
A new panel was ordered for to-

Senate Probers, Led By
Pecora, Find $48,000
Was Paid In 1930
J. P. Enjoys Telling
Financial Secrets

Lost Money'

A Senate investigating committee
was told today that none of the 20
members of J. P. Morgan and Co.
paid any income tax for the years
1931 or 1932 because of losses report-
ed by their firm.
J. P. Morgan, senior partner of the
firm, and Leonard Keyes, office man-
ager, testified at the opening of the
investigation by the banking commit-
tee that the total income taxes paid
by the partners in 1930 were about
$48,000 and none had been paid
They said that in reorganizing the
firm Jan. 2, 1931, a loss of $21,000,-
000 was established but had not been
used to get out of paying income
taxes because it was not needed, and
now, by virtue of a change in the
law, can't be used in 1933.
Morgan Comortable
Throughout the thrill-packed day
of cross-examination, the usually
reticent and retiring banker sat
comfortably in his witness chair and
seemed to enjoy disclosing informa-
tion never before told about the
operation of his business.
He disclosed that the total assets
of the private banking house at the
close of 1932 were $424,08,095, and
that it had deposits of about $340,-
A list of more than 50 corporations
doing business in interstate corn-
merce that had deposits of more
than one million dollars each in his

This and a mass of other informa-
tion that even the famous "Pujo
Money Trust" investigation of 21
years ago failed to develop from his
father, was handed the committee
with a smile, but John W. Davis,
counsel for the bankers, intervened
to prevent supplying the partnership
agreement under which the firm
A "Private Matter"
Davis, the Democratic presidential
candidate in 1924, insisted that this
was a "private matter," but the com-
mittee later in executive session de-
cided to ask for it any way, with the
understanding that it could decide
later whether to make the agreement
The counsel for the Morgan firm
agreed also to submit it. The part-
nership agreement shows the divi-
sion of profits and liability for losses.
The committee, meanwhile, decid-
ed to make public loans by the firm
to executives of other banks.
The committee decided that the
list of those individuals who had
$100,000 or more on deposit with the
huge banking house would be con-
sidered by the committee only in
executive session.
Ferdinand Pecora, counsel for the
committee, had made a strong plea
that the disputed lists be made avail-
able so that he could ask questions
about them.
