$580,000,000 Economy Effected,
But Hoover Asks New Taxation
WASHINGTON, Dec. 9. -(P) -
President Hoover believes that, de-
spite economies totaling $580,000,000,
depression influences which have re-
duced government income necessitate
new federal taxation, if the nation
is to avoid increasing the public debt.
The President has set appropria-
tions for the fiscal year 1933-1934 at
$4,218,808,344 against $4.800,731,979
Varied Economies Urged
The reduction of $580,000,000 is to
be accomplished largely through can-
cellation of planned construction ag-
gregating half a billion or more; a
$55,000,000 saving through a tem-
porary reduction in the pay of civil
service employes, and a net saving
of $89,000,000 on payments to war
The president suggests but one new
tax-a 2% per cent general sales tax
on all items except food-which he
e ;tiniates would yield approximately
$355,000,000. He further advises con-
tinuation of the one-cent federal gas-
oline tax to yield an additional $137,-
The budget as proposed is likely to
be revised considerably before Con-
gress makes the final determination
of new taxes and expenditures.
Veterans' organizations are expect-
ed to fight reductions vigorously; in-
deed are on record as demanding
payment of a $2,000,000,000 bonus.
Sales Tax Hard Fought
Likewise in the search for new rev-
enue the sales tax may not be the
final answer. It aroused a real fight
in last winter's Congress and was de-
feated. The tax has received con-
siderable impetus since then, how-.
ever, and many observers believe it
will be adopted in some form during
the present session.
Without such taxation, the Presi-
dent predicts the public debt will be

year 1933, and that the excess of ex-
penditures in the 1932 fiscal year,
which ended June 30, was $2,472,732,-
For the three fiscal years the com-
bined excess of expenditures would
be $3,926,403,043, bringing net federal
debt near to $22,000,000,000 if the
new taxes are not arranged.

Glee Club May
A new plan, still in the process of
formation, is being considered by the
Varsity Glee Club through the of-
fices of the Alumni Association, ac-
cording to T. Hawley Tapping, gen-
eral secretary of the organization.
The idea includes a series of concerts
to be given by the glee club before
the various University clubs within a
radius of approximately 150 milesg
Mr. Tapping stated that nothing
definite has been accomplished as
yet toward this end, but that he in-
tends to contact several of the
alumni clibs and obtain their re-
actions before proceeding.
The program would include music
by the glee club orchestra and groups
of songs by the members of the club,
to be given in connection with what-
ever affairs the local organization
Next Thursday Mr. Tapping will
travel to Saginaw and Bay City with
Eugene G. O'Brien, '07, president of
the ninth alumni district and James
M. O'Dea, '09, director of the district,
both residents of Detroit, to meet the
offices of the University clubs of
General alumni affairs will be dis-
cussed as well as the administration
of the district.

Synthetic Rubies Found
As By-Product Of Bottles
URBANA, Ill., Dec. 9.-The old gag
about making diamonds from beer
bottles seems much more a reality
since the University of Illinois
ceramics department discovered that
small rubies are a by-product of
green ginger ale bottles. These
rubies are found on the inside walls
of a tank used in melting the glass.
Natural rubies are made of corun-
dum, colored by small amounts of
chromium, a hard, brittle metal. In
the process of manufacturing colored
bottles a large tank lined with fire-
clay is used to hold the molten glass.
The dust from the glass slowly
changes the surface of the lining
above the glass line into corundum.
Small amounts of chromium ab-
sorbed from the glass gives a surface
to the rubies thus formed.
These artificial rubies are beauti-
fully colored and appear real, but are
very small in most cases, which
makes the alchemy-of-glass method
of making rubies unprofitabel as yet.
