For Farm Aid'
Up In Senate
Solons Debate Bill To Aid
'Mortgage Refinancing;
House Discusses Plan
WASHINGTON, Jan. 1.-(')-
Congressional concern with the
farmers' economic ailments today
brought.introduction of a new relief
measure into the Senate while the
House debated the far-reaching al-
lotment plan.
Sponsored by Sen. Robinson of Ar-
kansas, the minority leader, the new
bill is designed to aid in refinancing
farm mortgages held by federal lnrid
banks and joint stock land banks at
an interest rate of four and one-half
per cent.
An additional $200,000,000 for the
federal land banks, to aid them in
being lenient toward hard pressed
debtors, is a part of the measure's
Meanwhile, the allotment plan was
alternately praised and condemned
as the House discussed proposed
amendments. Refusing to remove
hogs from the list of commodities on
which the bill would apply, the House
approved only a few Aiinor amend-
ments offered by members of its ag-
iiculture committee. The door had
been opened previously, however, to
let in heanuts, dairy products. ahd
A temporary delay in plans for
early enactment of a beer bill de-
veloped with the decision of the Sen-
ate judiciary committee to redraft
the measure. Friends of the brew,'
however, made the move in hope of
removing any doubt as to its consti-
tutionality. The bill has passed the
House already.


Cropper its Good Will Ftind

Charging his 150 listeners with
stupidity and declaring' that - he
would immediately organize a mass
protest of 1,000 of the "right kind
of students," Leon Gropper, purport-
ing to represent the National Student
League, yesterday resumed his at-
tacks on the Student Good Will
Fund, The Daily, and the University
admnistration in a stump speech
from the Library steps.
Gropper, who is an assistant in the
physics department, asserted that
there are 500 starving or near-starv-
ing students on the campus, and that

In Law Review
O'Brien Terms Michigan

Coui'ts will have to declare invalid
Michigan's new liquor control com-
mission amendment if the question
of its-'Federal constitutionality is
raised, in the opinion of Ernest I).
O'Brien, '33L. O'Brien, the son of
Federal Judge Ernest O'Brien of De-
t'roit, is the author of a comment on
the. new. amendment which appears
in the current issue' of the Law Re-
view. ...- +
"If the amendment l'is unconstitu-
tional," O'Brien. continues, "there is
suggested the problem of its validity
if the const;itntional barfier is later
"Following the usual rule that an
enactment declared unconstitutional
is void 'ab inito,'" O'Brien declares,
"it would seem that the amendment
would continue to be of no effect and
would have to be re-enacted."
O'Brien is of the opinion, how-
ever, that "if the Legislature takes
no immediate steps under the new
amendment, or if it limits its statutes
to go into effect only when the'Fed-
eral restrictions are removed, "it will
then undoubtedly be declared, valid."
O'Brien's comment is divided into
three parts, dealing withthe present
law, the power of the Legislature and
the liquor commission under the new
amendment, and the relation of the
a m e n d m e n t to the Eighteenth
Amendment to the Federal constitu-
-It is his belief that it is "an un-
warranted conclusion, to hold that
the Legislature is forever precluded
from passing a prohibition act," even
though "it cannot be denied that the
new amendment is an expression of
disfavor of the former amendment,"
he said.

Attacks The Daily
The audien:e, composed of casual
spectators and 'four or five of Grop-
per's personal hangers-on, heard
with evident amusement a violent at-
tack on The Daily by both Gropper
and Edward T. Cheyfitz, '34, Grop-
per describing the staff members of
the paper as "reactionariea" and
"that rich :crowd,", and comparing
The Daily's activities in support of
the welfare project to those of J.
P. Morgan.
Contributors to the fund were at-
tacked by Gropper for their "spine-
lessness" in submitting to requests.
"A solicitor asks you for a contribu-
tion," he shouted, "aid says, 'Why
don't' you dig inr?'-s o you' re all
good-natured slobs and you dig in."
He declared that a committee of

"The intangible thing that engi-
neers must know is human engineer-
ing" said A. N. Goddard, chairman
of the Detroit section of the A.S.M.E.
in an address on "Engineering for
Engineering Students" at the meet-
ing of the students chapter of the
American Society of Mechanical En-
gineers held last., night in the Union.
Mr. Goddard stressed the fact that
the forces of human life ard greater
than physical forces and that engi-
neering students must not become
obsessed with the fact that the world
owes them a living because of their
college training, but rather that they
should strive to learn "how. to get
along with men." "Successful engi-
neers have acknowledged 15 per cent
of their success to college training
and 85 per cent to their ability for
cooperating with fellow workers," he
In' praising the acc'omplishments
of the engineers, Mr. Goddard stated
that "engineering has not reached
its end, as many would lead us to
believe" and demonstrated with spe-
cific examples how engineers have
made valuable contributions to bet-
tering the. lives and increasing the

Indications of the genuine spirit
of cooperation existing throughout
the student body continued. Numer-
ous contributions of more than $1

$5 were frequent.
Workers were accepting pledges
for amounts to be given at a later

LANSING, Jan. 11.-(M)-Plans for
reorganizing the state's fiscal system
were pressed today as Gov. William
A. Comstock announced complete re-

to a state sales tax.
Arthur J. Lacy and Raymond Berry,
of Detroit, and Patrick H. O'Brien,
attorney-general, and others discuss-
ed with the governor the general
terms of a combined sales tax and
gross income measure they are draft-
ing. The governor said the objective
at present is to put on proper legal
shape the basic provisions. Final
rates will not be fixed in the adminis-
tration measure until it has been

definitely determined h o w much
money will have to be raised to meet
state expenses and the shortages that
may occur in local units and school
districts through the operation of the
new $15 tax limitation amendment to
the state constitution.

Durant Claims
Japanese-U. S.
War Imminent
Philosopher Brands The
Productive Power Jump
As Cause Of Depression
Imminent war with Japan, with a
subsequent devastating conflict with
Great Britain for world economic
supremacy, was the warning flung at
the audience last night by Dr. Will
Durant, popular expositor of philos-
ophy, when he spoke at Hill Auditor-
lum on "The American Crisis," in the
fourth presentation of the Oratori-
cal Association Series. . -
Pointing out that the present eco-
nomic crisis was caused by a huge.
increase of productive power which
has greatly outstripped the compar-
atively slight growth of purchasing
power, Dr. Durant proceeded 'to paint;
a vivid picture of drastic consequen-
ces pursuant of the situation. In ad-
dition to the war menace, he said,
the other angle of the situation is a
rapid degeneration of our American,
civilization because of use of birth'
control bythe intelligent'classes in
the .face of prolific breeding by the
Suggests Remedy
The remedy for this situation, he
said, lies in the restoration of pur-
chasing power. Some of the steps
pointed out by the speaker to effect
this end are:
Reduction of the international
debts to America by 35 per cent, and
a subsequent inflation of currency
by'no more' than '35 p+e cent sc that
'he government 'will- be enabled to
pay American citizens dollar for dol-
lar oh their war bonds without detri-
ment to the treasury. This, he bald,
would serve to stimulate buying and
production, because when prices be-
gin to rise, buying will increase and
hoarding will be discontinued. He
demonstrated that the value of th
inflated dollar would be as great as
the value of the money which citizens
paid for war bonds at the time of the
Immediate recognition or Russia.
This step, he said, would obviate the
huge Russian standing army, and
thus greatly reduce the necessity for
large armaments in the nation of
Europe and America.
Restoration of agriculture in Amer-
ica by easy government credits to
agricultural cooperatives.
Forecasts Tripartite War
Great Britain, it was stated, has
been forced to destroy at least one
nation during every century of Its
existence, in order to' preserve her
own life, because of her dependence
on foreign markets. "Who is next?"
he asked. "Japan or the United
States are the only important com-
petitors of Great Britain. But Eng-
land, instead of seeking to eliminate
these competitors individually, may
be clever enough to get the two na-
tions to destroy each other. I think
if you remember'the attitude of Eng-
land in the past year, it will be evi-
dent that she has taken that policy.
"The prospects are that we will
have to fight Japan-and if we win,
we will be almost in the worst pos-
sible condition. For if we are victor-
ious, we will find ourselves face to
face across the Atlantic with Eng-
land, our own blood brothers- and
the last great war for European su-
premacy will be a fight to the death."

Submitted Last Year
Freshman awards of the Hopwood
Writing Contest are exciting more
interest from the present freshman
class than ever before, according to
Prof. Erich A. Walter, who is in
charge of the freshman division of
the contest.
After a meeting of the Hopwood
Awards committee, it was announced
that more manuscripts from fresh-
men are expected this year than last.
An attempt is being made by the
committee to get judges for the con-
test of the same high calibre as last
year, said Dr. Bennett Weaver, di-
rector of the awards.
Manuscripts that are presented
this year must be more uniform than
those presented last year, said Dr.
