CHICAGO, Dec. 14.-(R)-The rail-
roads served notice upon the 1,500,-
000 employees today that the next
time they discuss wages it would in-
volve reductions in basic rates and
would be held under the legal pro-
cess of the Railway Labor Act.
Spokesmen for the 47 class one
carriers of the country, conferring
jointly with 1,500 labor leaders, an-
swered a demand that they propose
an extension of temporary pay cuts
to a definite date. They suggested
that the current agreement, a.10 per
cent deduction which left the basic
rates unchanged, be extended from
next Jan. 31 to July 31.
But they specified that neither side
should propose a change in the agree-
ment prior to July 1, and that any
change or termination after that date
should affect the basic rates of pay
and be negotiated under the Railway
Labor Act, passed by Congress in

WASHINGTON, Dec. 14.-(P)-
The influence of the November elec-
tion showed itself plainly in Congress
today by the Senate's frown on con-
firmation on presidential appoint-
ments and the progress of a domestic
allottment plan of farm relief in the
Senate Democrats approved the
appointment of Roy D. Chapin as
Secretary of Commerce, but then the
gates were closed on others Presi-
dent Hoover has appointed to office
-permanently apparently for this
session. Before the next, Mr. Hoover
will have left the White House.
President-elect Roosevelt has been
represented as favoring the allot-
ment plan to help steady the farm-
er's financial legs. Today, represen-
tatives of organized agriculture told
the House agricultural committee
that they had agreed on an allot-
ment plan. Chairman Jones of the
committee had already prepared a
bill along the lines they are seeking,
but there are differences in detail.
Mills Questioned
Questioning Secretary Mills for the
first time since the campaign, Demo-
cratic members of the House ways
and means committee precipiated a
warm exchange. They reminded him
of mistakes in revenue estimates that

the treasury has made in the past,
but the secretary stood his ground.
He was one of the leaders in Presi-
dent Hoover's unsuccessful campaign
for re-election.
Betweentimes, Mills told the com-
mittee that he estimated a tax on
beer would yield between $125,000,000
and $150,000,000 annually. He advo-
cated a sales tax to balance the bud-
After Mills left the stand, the com-
mittee concluded its hearing on the
beer measure by listening to a num-
ber of prohibition advocates, includ-
ing F. Scott McBride, president of
the Anti-Saloon League.
Hoover Proposal Heard
President Hoover's proposals for a
regrouping of about 50 government
agencies were heard before the House
expenditures committee. J. Clawson
Roop, director of the budget, testi-
fied. Committee members who ex-
pressed themselves were critical of
the suggested realignment.
Once again, debate on the Philip-
pine independence consumed most of
the Senate's time. There were roll
calls between arguments, and one of
these fixed the time for freedom for
the islands at eight years, instead of
the 18 in the Hawes-Cutting bill
under discussion. This vote is to be
reconsidered, however.

The method used in providing the
books will be through orders made in
advance. Students will fill out an
order blank, indicating the course
and the book required for it, and also
whether a new or used text book is
desired. "Students are urged to file
applications as soon as possible, in
order thatbooks may be furnished
as quickly as ppssible," Sher Quraishi,
Grad., manager of the store, said.
The organization will be divided
into three parts, a book exchange, a
stationery department, and a new
text book department. Prof. W. Den-

be treasurer.

Baylis Take's
Stand As Trial
Nears Finish
Rapp Fails To Shake His
Story; Case Expected To
Go To Jury Today
Waiving the immunity guaranteed
him by law, Carry Hunt Baylis,
negro, defendant in the Cap Death-
erage murder case, took the stand
I yesterday -to testify in his own be-
Baylis admitted that Tom Brittop,
confessed slayer, had spent the night
of the murderat.his home but denied
any -eonnection with the crime.
Cross-examination by Prosecutor Al-
bert J. Rapp failed to shake his story.
Harry Bledsoe, Detroit negro at-
torney, closed the case of the defense
with the exception of one witness
who could not be located. In the
prosecution's rebuttal Prosecutor
Rapp presented two character wit-
nesses, Jack Poole, another Ypsilanti
negro,. and Sergeant Ernest Klavit-
ter of the Ypsilanti police depart-
ment. Attorney, Bledsoe objected to
Poole's testimony in regard to an in-
cident at the latter's house in which
Baylis had been concerned and the
objection was sustained. Bledsoe also
drew from Poole the admission that
he was on parole on a charge of
breaking and entering.
In answer to a question regarding
Baylis' character, Poole replied that
it was "mixed up a little." Klavitter
testified that Baylis' character was
untainted except during times of ex-
cessive drinking. Bledsoe, .however,
had the remark stricken from the
record on the ground that the drink-
ing did not affect Baylis' "honesty
and veracity."
The case will probably go to the
jury today, as only a few witnesses
remained to be called.
