Indiana Prohibition
Law Repealed By
Senate; House Next
INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 24.-()-
The Indiana Senate today passed by
a vote of 30 to 16 a bill repealing
the State prohibition law and setting
up machinery for the control of the
sale of beer in event that the Na-
tional Congress modifies the Volstead
Law. The measure already has passed
the House, but must go back to that
body for concurrence in Senate
Passage of the bill carries out a
Democratic platform pledge. Indiana,
since 1925, has had what has been
generally declared to be one of the
strictestaState prohibition statutes in
the United States.
Gov. Paul V. McNutt, a week ago,
predicted that the Indiana law would
be repealed. The measure cannot
reach the Governor's desk until to-
morrow and possibly not before Mon-
day. After he signs the bill, members
of the Legislature say that the State
dry law no longer will be effective,
since the new law becomes operative
immediately insofar as the repeal
provisions are concerned.
Applause came from the gallery

Welfare Work ,
Discussed By
Finance Group
No Positive Action Will Be,
Taken On Charity Work
During Banking Holiday
The finance committee of the Com-
mon Council, meeting yesterday aft-
ernoon to discuss what measures
should be taken to continue welfare
work during the extended banking
"holiday," decided to take no posi-a
tive action until the situation wasE
somewhat clarified. The committee'
was hopeful that the banks would be
able to open on a better than 5 per1
cent basis in a short time.!
As the matter nw stands, the city
is able to use of its total deposit forr
relief work, only 5 per cent. This
will be sufficient to. carry those de-
pendent upon the money for a short
time, at least, the committee believes.
All checks written to city employes
during the first eight days of the
"holiday" are now coming back to
the city treasury and new ones,i
drawn on the recently created "trust
funds," are being signed in their
place. It is not believed that 5 per
cent of the city's total deposits wills
cover all these checks, but those in
charge of the city's finances antici- i
pate that there will be some change
in the situation shortly.
Whitney To Testify In

WASHINGTON, Feb. 24.-- (/ -
Richard Whitney, president and out-

stock exchange, today awaited hisr
turn to testify in the senate investi-

Why he was called before the bank-
ing committee was not explained by

Regents Hear
Relief Demand
Of Delegation
Board's Meeting Invaded
By Student Agitators;
Relief Clause Saubbed.
Marching to the old Law Bilding
as a protesting unit, a delegation of
five students yesterday afternoon in-
terrupted the Board of Regents'
meeting to present to that body two
"demands" for the betterment of
conditions among needy students of
the University. The delegation hadl
been picked a few minutes beforel
from a mass meeting on the Library
The first "demand," calling for a
moratorium on student tuition note
payments until Oct. 1 of this year,1
was termed by the regents as prac-
tically identical with their own pol-
icy. The second, demanding funds
for student relief, was flatly refused.
Moratorium Ideas Alike "
Herbert G. Watkins, assistant sec-l
retary of the University,' said thatx
the moratorium "demand" as spon-
sored by the delegation, might have
been copied from a reent report of
the regents. He announced that the
regents would deal individually with
student debtors, and those debtors
who were "all right" scholastically
would be granted a virtual morator-
ium until October. Regent James O.
Murfin's 'comment was that the dele-
gation "would have done better to use
'ask' instead of 'demand.' "
The delegation's second "demand,"
that relative to student relief, was
termed "unreasonable" by the re-
gents, who added that "thought and
consideration" were necessary beforel
action along those lines could be con-
sidered. Suggestions proffered by the
delegation to raise relief funds were
as follows:
Fund Suggestions
1. That all salaries on the Univer-
sity pay-roll of over $7,500 be im-
mediately cut to that figure, the re-l
sultant saving to be used for relief.
2. That 50 per cent of the athletic
fund be appropriated for needy stu-
3. That an additional tax be levied
by the Legislature on higher incomes
in order to provide additional relief.1
The "demands" presented to the
regents climaxed relief agitation by
a Committee for Student Relief,
formed Wednesday night at a meet-
ing in the Union. The Committee
claims the support in their projectc
of campus Church Groups, the Co-
operatives, the Michigan Socialist
Club, the National Student League,
certain undisclosed members of the
faculty, fraternities, and Independ-

Japan's Vote Ineffective
The session developed one of the
most intense dramas of the history of
the League. Voting by nominal roll
call, the Assembly piled up 42 voices
to support the grave indictment of
Japan contained in a report on the
the Manchurian situation drawn up
by a special committee.
Delegates and spectators evidenced
a state of high nervous tension at
the conclusion of Matsuoka's address.
His peroration was:
"I beg you to realize the facts and
see the vision of the future, to deal
with us on our terms and give us
Your confidence,"
The mass walkout of the Japanese
delegation passed without demon-
stration. Many delegates and spec-
tators sceemed surpr~ised at the 'un-
announced withdrawal of the Tokio
representatives from the meeting.
Formal Break is Forecast
Mr. Matsuoka's farewell statement
contained no expressed threat of
complete break with the League, but
his delegation's gesture generally was
interpreted in Gncva as a prelimin-
ary to giving notice of resignation
from League membership in the ne t
few weeks or months.
Tonight Matsuoka and his colle-
agues arracgd to quit Geneva for,
Japan. For the present the Japan-

Conference, held under League aus-
pices, is not retiring, as no definite
