Whatever rowing may go on in
Congress over the details of new
taxes to balance the budget, the Pres-
ident-elect is satisfied that as a re-
sult of Thursday night's parley in
New York between himself and the
party pilots of Capitol Hill a deter-
mined effort will be made to make
government costs and income for
next year meet.
Expresses Surprise
The news that Speaker John N.
Garner, Vice-President-elect, w a s
talking about "less painful" levies
than the proposed income tax boost
brought an expression of surprise
here and a reply that the President-
elect was leaving the details to Con-
gress.
Mr. Garner and Senator Joseph T.
Robinson of Arkansas, the Demo-
cratic floor leader, were the spokes-
men of Thursday night's meeting
who announced to newspapermen the
program of raising income taxes to
help wipe out the estimated $192,-1
000,000 deficit.
Enactment of the 3.2 per cent, beer
bill with its revenue provision is an-
other part of the Democratic attack
on the deficit. However, this proposi-
tion is going. to be sent along to Pres-
ident Hoover asa separate proposi-
tion for a veto or approval. Likewise,
the Democrats are determined to put
up to the President their "parjw'
plan" farm relief measure now be-I
fore' the House and in this they have
the apparent support of Mr. Roose-
velt.
The other Democratic piece-an
additional $100,000,000 in economies{
below the Hoover budget-received
renewed consideration at a confer-
ence late Friday in New York City be-!
tween the President-elect, Senator
James F. Byrnes, of South Carolina,
and Prof. Raymond Moley, economic
adviser. Byrnes is a member of the
special ecopomic commission of the
Senate.
Motors to Home
Leaving the busy New York City
home at 4:30 p. m. Friday Mr. Roose-
velt motored up the Hudson River
valley to his estate here near Hyde
Park.
This week-end and the next will
be spent here. A visit from Gov. Gif-
ford Pinchot, of Pennsylvania, Re-
publican independent who -was silent
on the campaign but critical of the
Hoover administration before and af-
ter, is on the program here. Mr
Roosevelt says this meeting does not
involve politics.
Dr. George Kline, Noted
Psychiatrist, Succumbs
Dr. George Milton Kline, interna-
tionally known psychiatrist, formerly
senior assistant physician on the staff
of the State Psychopathic Hospital,
and University alumnus, died Thurs-
day :at his home in Boston.

master of arts degree from the Uni-
versity in 1931. Funeral services will
be held this afternoon in Boston.

To Feature Art
Appreciation In
Radio Series
A series of talks on art apprecia-
tion intended for students in schoolsj
throughout the state will be present-
ed by the University Broadcasting
Service, it was announced yesterday
by Prof. Waldo M. Abbot, director.
"Many schools have been forced
to curtail theii' curricula in the fine
arts," the announcement said. "and
these programs are designed to aid
these schools in maintaining their
cultural programs."
The first talk will be given 1y Prof.
Bruce M. Donaldson, chairman of the
Department of Fine Arts, while the
other four will be presented by Miss
Adelaide Adams of the Fine Arts de-
partment, said Professor Abbot.
Those interested in following the
series of talks were advised by Pro-
fessor Abbot to procure prints of the
pictures which will be discussed. The
titles of the pictures will be mailed.
to anyone on reouest, he said.
U. S. Buildin Damaged
In Washington Fire
WASHINGTON, Jan. 7.-(/P)-Vir-
tually every piece of fire fighting ap-
paratus in downtown Washington,
was called out last night to combat a
blaze in the new Postoffice Depart-
ment Building under construction at
Twelfth St~. and Constitution Ave.,
N. W.
The flames were sweeping through
the wooden safety flooring of the
structure, of which only the steel
skeleton yet had been constructed.
The fire was concentrated at the
safety flooring on two floors of one
wing.

onstruction Plan
is a "good wo-d" which means Rule
of Science.
"Everyone knows," he said, "that
the amount of labor necessary to
make a unit of work has been de-
creased. Therefore, there iz4echno-
1 o g i c a1 unemployment--everyone
realizes that.
"The Technocrats have made no
proposal that can be called definite.
They propose to measure costs -in
terms of power, but I am not clear
whether they are going to consider
merely human power-the operations,
for instance, of planting, reaping,
threshing wheat-or t h e natural
power also, such as that furnished
by the sun.
"They aie a little in error when
they concentrate to so great an ex-
tent on power," Professor White com-
mented. "That is easy to measure,
but technological advancement is
due to other factors. An example is
the introduction of alloy steel, which
makes possible a lighter metal with-
out much change in the amount oft
power employed in its production.
'What Has Been Done?'
"As to the remedy for the present
condition, I don't see that the Tech-
nocrats have done much. I can't see
the connection in their proposal of
the introduction, example, of the
electric kilowatt dollar.
"This country ought to be rich. We
have wonderful raw materials, such
as coal, iron ore, oil, wonderful soil
for agriculture. So. we really ought
to be prosperous as soon as we get
over our economic indigestion.
"We must, however, cut down our
hours of work. I think we can get
along with 30 hours of work a week-
but if we don't cut down, there is im-
mediate great danger df permanent
unemployment."
t Journalists Plan House
For President-Elect
ATLANTA, Ga., Jan. 7. --( P)-
Georgia newspaper men want to
build a real "Georgia White House"
for President - elect Franklin D.
Roosevelt.
Jack Wilhams, president of the
Georgia Press Association and edi-_
nor of the Waycross Journal-Herald,
,Announced today that a movement
was being sponsored by newspaper
men to erect such a structure at
Warm Springs, Mr. Roosevelt's part-
time home.
Williams said such a building
Mould be an "expression of love and
esteem held for the President-elect"
by the newspaper men of the state
' and would be built for his use for
the next four years "with the hope
x that there will be a demand for its
1 use for the next eight years."
The movement, Williams said, is to
be sponsored by the state press asso-
ciation and the fund proposed is
$100,000.

Skull, Jaw Are
Put In Museum
A complete lower hawvand a skull
show.ing the palate and teeth of the
great Titanotherium, which lived
during the middle Tertiary, Oligo-
cene period, have just been installed
in the Hall of Evolution by the Mu-
seum of Paleontology, it has been
learned from Dr. E. C. Case, director
of the museum.
The specimens were collected last
summer by an expedition from the
museum which was located a few
miles south of Kadoka, S. D.. while
working in the Pine Ridge Indian
Reservation, the eastern end of the
Big Bad Lands of South Dakota.
These two specimens forn a val-
uable addition to the collections, Dr.
Case said, in that they show the
comYlete dentition of the Titano-
theres, which was a browsing animal
only slightly smaller than the ele-
phant of today.
Another recent installation at the
musucm is a skull of the Permian
reptile Kannemeyeria. This skull
was found by H. F. Donner, a for-
mer student of the University and
now an observer in the Hussey-La-
mont Observatory at Bloemfontein,
near Burghersdorp in the Orange
Free State.
The second skull is nearly two feet
long and is toothless except for a
single pair of great dog-like teeth.
Dr. Case called this one of the finest
specimens of the long-extinct Per-
mian reptiles that has yet been
found.
Dana Gives Radio Talk
On Reforestation Plan
Wild lands which no longer have
any other natural resources can be
best put to work by planting trees
on them, was the statement of Prof.
Samuel T. Dana, dean of the School
of Forestry and Consetvation, who
delivered a talk yesterday over the
facilities of the University Broadcast-
ing Service.
"So important is the forest in wild
land regions as a builder of stable
communities," said Dean Dana, "that
its production would be worth while
to public investment even if little or
no net return were obtained from the
istandingtimber."
Dean Dana said that the project
I of reforestation was of such a na-
ture that it could not be carried out
rsuccessfully with private funds, but
that government aid is necessary, and
appealed for the undertaking of a
F reconstruction program.
