Philippine Bill
Passes Over
Hoover's Veto
Independence Is Planned
For Islands In 10 Years
If Terms Are Accepted
Executive Message
Goes Disregarded
Impeachment Bill Loses
Again, 342 to 11; Glass
Flays Huy Long
WASHINGTON, Jan. 17.-(P) - A
promise of 17 years was kept by Con-
gress today as the Senate disregarded
the President and over-rode his veto
of the Philippine freedom bill, 66 to
With prior like action by the
House, the bill immediately became
law and the Islands, if they want it
on the terms offered, will have free-
dom in 10 years. In 1916, an act of
Congress declared its intention to
grant that freedom as soon as the
Filipinos were ready.
New Hoover Message
Congress almost disregarded, also,
a new Presidential message, one urg-
ently commending a general sales
tax and a balanced budget, and criti-I
cizing the amount of appropriation
reduction so far done. It lay unread
while other matters were attended to
but finally was taken up by both
Senate and House Democrats,
however, listened attentively to word
brought back from New York by
Senator Smith (Dem., S. C.) that
President-elect Roosevelt favors theT
inclusion of only wheat and cotton
in the allotment farm relief bill.
That would mean the eliminationt
of tobacco, dairy products, peanuts,t
hogs, and rice, which were in the
measure approved by the House.s
Despite the message carried by the
senator, the future of the farm billl
remained as clouded as that of the
beer measures also awaiting Senate
action. Even if Congress approvesf
them, a veto may be awaiting at the
White H Mouse, and they have notE
commanded the votes available for
Philippine independence.-
After the Philippine vote, the Sen-
ate Democratic leader, Robinson ofI
Arkansas, met the filibuster chal-c
lenge of Senator Long of Louisiana
to the Glass banking bill by taking1
steps to put into effect the drastic
closure rule that would limit debate.-
A two-thirds vote would be neces-
sary to make Long sit down. The
Louisiana Senator has supporters,a
and Republicans have held off to the
extent that the outcome is in doubt,
The test is to come Thursday. l
Seek Impeachment Again
An effort by Representative Mc-
Fadden (Rep., Pa.) to impeach Pres-
ident Hoover bobbed up agai : today
in the House. It was crushed without
debate by a vote of 342 to 11. Last
time he tried it lost, 361 to 8. t
The Senate sent to the White
House the $31,000,000 first deficiency
bill, whose amendments as revised by
the conferees were approved earlier
in the day by the House. Chiefc
among the amendments was that to
have all tax refunds of more than
$20,000-as finally approved-passed
on by a joint Congressional commit-
tee before payment by the Treasury,
which the original McKellar amend-1
ment had placed at $5,000.
Instead of Long Senator Glass of
Virginia took the floor after the Phil-

ippine vote and proceeded to lambast
the Louisiana senator in return for
the hammering Long has been giving
Body Of Man Killed In
Crash Is Brought Here
The body of Alvis D. Iler, 1804 Lin-
wood Ave., Detroit, killed in an auto-
mobile accident Monday night on
Michigan Ave., has been brought to
the Muehlig funeral chapel and
friends may call there today. Ar-
rangements for the funeral were not
known late last night.
Loren W. Clem, 515 Gott St., who
was a passenger in the car with Iler,
was last night reported to be in a
"serious condition" at Eloise Hos-
pital, Wayne County.
The accident occurred when the
machine, supposedly driven by Iler,

League Hlds
]Firmer Stand
France And Great Britain
Change Attitude; Geneva
Ready To Act
GENEVA, Jan. 17.--()-League of
Nations assembly leaders prepared
tonight for a final effort at concilia-
tion of the Sino-Japanese conflict
tomorrow without any real hope that
Tokyo would accept the League's
scheme for settling the dispute.
Meanwhile all sorts of stories were
being circulated to the effect that
American influenge ':dayed .a part in
the shift of League authorities to a
firmer policy toward Japan.
Geneva newspapers told of confer-
ences between American diplomats
and the foreign offices at London and
Paris, at which, they reported the
desire of the United States to ex-
pedite League action in the Far East-
ern dispute was expressed.
The Japanese delegation was very
busy today exchanging communica-
tions' with the home government re-
garding the Geneva situation. Yosuke
Matsuoka, Japan's chief representa-
tive, reiterated that his government
would insist that the assembly refrain
from denouncing the establishment
of the government of Manchukuo in
Manchuria and from condemning
Japanese policy in Manchuria since
September, 1931, as unwarranted ag-
There appeared tonight to be no
disposition in League quarters to ac-
cept the Japanese view on these ques-
tions, unless something unexpected
develops before tomorrow's meeting,
officials believe. The assembly's com-
mittee of 19 will advance to Para-
graph 4, Article 15, of the League
Covenant and will make a report on
the dispute without regard to Japan's
opposition. Paragraph 4 provides for
such a report with recommendations.
for League action.
Hugh R. Wilson, American minis-
ter to Switzerland, and other United
States officials have kept in close
contact the last few days with League
At yesterday's meeting the commit-
tee made preparations for the adop-
tion of a firmer policy. The apparent
change in attitude shown by the Brit-
ish and French members of the com-
mittee created a sensation. Some
persons attributed it to American in-
fluence. Others said it was caused
by developments in the Far East,
such as the occupation of Shanhaik-
wan by the Japanese.

Perhaps Comstock
Isn't Governor Yet,
Republicans Claim
LANSING, Jan. 17.-(P)-Repub-
lican Senators Tuesday declared war
on Gov. William A. Comstock.j
Aroused because they have not been
consulted about the Administration's
plans for tax relief, and with some
of the members arguing that the
Governor is not legally in office be-
cause of his failure to file a cam-1
paign expense account, the 15 Re-
publican Senators held a secret
meeting in the Capital National
Bank here following Tuesday's ses-
sion. They said that they had
reached no conclusions, but that the
caucus will be continued Wednesday.
"We want to know definitely.
whether Gov. Comstock is legally in
office," Senator Calvin A. Campbell,
who acted as chairman, explained
after the session.
"The law says that no elective of-
ficer can be sworn in until he has
filed an expense account. Mr. Com-
stock has not qualified and has de-
clared that he does not intend to
file an accounting of his campaign
expenditures. We want a legal opin-
ion on the Governor's status."
Cinema League Is
Praised For Film
Satisfaction with the selection of
"Tb e Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" to be
her for a three-day showing start-
ing tonight at Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre, was expressed by members
of the board of the Art Cinema
League who attended the pre-show-
ing yesterday.
Prof. E. A. Walter, of the English
Department, considered the programn
"splendid entertainment."
"Gustave - Dore's illustrations for
De Quincey's 'The Avenger' or Poe's
'Lygeia'-that's the 'Cabinet of Dr.
Caligari.' All the tenseness and hor-
ror of a nightmare are in the pic-
ture. Unlike other stories of its kind,
is is convincingly adjusted to what
we know as normal life. It has been
compared to 'Frankenstein.' It issu-
perior to that picture in itsoriginal
conception and, I believe, also in its
"The Chaplin short is the old
Charlie slapstick-and still worth
seeing and laughing at, especially as
a balance to 'The Cabinet'," he said.
Wilfred B. Shaw, director of alum-
m relations, who has spent consider-
able time in the study of cinematic
photography, characterized the Ger-
man film as "very interesting be-
cause it shows what can be done with
the simplest means, in contrast with
our elaborate settings. The use of
modernist feelingin decoration and
the massing' of shadows and light
make it like a dream out of Poe,"
he said.
Tickets will be available at the
box-office at any time during days
that the picture will be shown. All
seats are reserved.

Football Game
Rumors Afloat
'Hunk' Anderson States
Notre Dame Is Ready To
Play Michigan
DETROIT, Jan. 17.--()-The De-
troit Free Press says that rumors
were afloat at the annual Notre
Dame football banuet in South Bend,
Ind., last night, that Notre Dame
and Michigan were on the verge of
renewing gridiron relations.
The two teams have not met in
football since 19009.
A staff' representative of the Free
Press who attended the banquet says
the reports were given impetus when
Harry Kipke, head coach at Michi-
gan, was introduced as "the first
Michigan man you folks have seen
here since 1909, but we hope not the
last," and responded by saying he
hoped his appearances at Notre
Dame would be more frequent.
Kipke was introduced by James H.
Crowley, retiring football coach at
Michigan State College, who was one
of the "Four Horsemen" of Notre
Dame football.
The Free Press quotes Coach-Hart-
ley "Hunk" Anderson of Notre Dame
as saying in an interview, "we are
ready to play Michigan any time
they want to meet us," and describ-
ing the game as a "natural" that
would "pack either stadium."
Jesse Harper, Notre Dame ath-
letic director, is quoted as saying,
"we're ready to play any time, but
for further information you had bet-
ter see Mr. Fielding H. Yost."
Yost, athletic director at Michigan,
said in Ann Arbor tonight "I don't
know anything about it."
Board Defers
Action On Fate
Of County Fair
Possibility Of Referendum
Next Spring Fades As
Restrictions Interfere
Action on a proposed referendum
on the continuation of the County
Fair was deferred at a meeting of the
legislative committee of the Board
of Supervisors yesterday. pending a
study of the legality of such a vote
by Prosecutor Albert J. Rapp.
In an informal opinion, Mr. Rapp
said that he believed the act would
require the signature of the governor
and approval by the Board of Super-
visors at a special meeting. The
chairman of the board is required
by law to give each member 10 days
notice before a meeting is called
This, according to James Galbraith
chairman of the legislative commit-
tee, would preclude the presentation
of the issue to the voters at the
spring election, because of the short-
ness of the time involved.

Rumors that more than 60 resi-
ents of the Lawyers Club intend to
break their contracts and leave the
club next semester were crushed
yesterday when Prof. Grover C. Gris-
more, secretary-treasurer of the
club's board of governors, and
Charles D. Peet, '33L., its president,
denied that there is more than the
usual, practically insignificant dis-
Professor Grismore declared that
even the customary protests have
dwindled since Saturday, when re-
ductions of $10 a semester in room
rent and 50 cents a week in board
were announced for next semester.
A number of students interviewed
last night said that they estimated
that between 60 and 80 residents had
spoken of petitioning for release of
their contracts. They agreed with
Prof. Grismore and Peet, however,
saying that, so far as they could
ascertain, the number had decreased
substantially. Reasons given for the
collapse of the alleged movement to
leave the club were the reduction in
expenses announced for next semes-,
ter, and the rumored decision of
Professor Grismore to release stu-
dents from their contracts only upon
evidence of lack of money.
Final Reports Of Good
Will Drive Due Friday
Reports from solicitors continuing
the Student Good Will Fund drive
this week will not be available until
the final reports of team captains
are made Thursday and Friday, it
was announced last night by drive
director ..
Contributions continue to be made,
however, and it is expected that a
substantial increase in the fund will
be revealed at the final check-up.
Fraternity checks for membership
donations to the fund will not be
received until late this month, so
that estimates of the total amount
collected from them cannot be made
at present. The fund total is still
slightly below $2,000.

'Malt' Orchestra May
'Work' At 'Hop' Party
Ben Bernie, the old malto, may
not have all the lads at the J-Hop
after all, it was hinted yesterday.
Bernie is under contract to the
Blue Ribbon Malt Co. If he is to
broadcast here the program may
have to be sponsored by the com-
pany, and the word "malt" will be
constantly repeated on a "hop"
broadcast. Local broadcasting offi-
cials wondered what the proper
University authorities, who decide
such weighty matters as these,
would do to keep "malt" and
"hop" apart.
On the campus, however, there
was a feeling that malt and hops
go together quite well.
Judiciary Body
Favors Repeal
Of Frosh Rule
Committee Passes Bill To
Allow Freshmen Right
To Live In Fraternities
Repeal of the rule forbidding
freshmen living in fraternities,
passed by the Interfraternity Coun-
cil at its last meeting, was approved
by the Judiciary Committee last
night. The proposal must be passed
by the Senate Committee on Stu-
dent Affairs before it becomes effec-
All freshmen intending to move
into fraternities, if the ruling is'
passed, must notify their house-
holders before Jan. 27 that they are
moving out of their rooming houses,
according to University rules. No
freshman will be permitted to move
into a fraternity house until his
grades which may be withheld until
March 1, have -been received by the
dean of students and permission has
been granted by his parents, Edwin
T. Turner, president of the Interfra-
ternity Council, said last night.
Freshmen who failed to hand in
preference lists last fall may be
pledged beginning at 6 p. m. Friday,
Feb. 10, Turner stated.
A movement is under way to ob-
tain permission fromfthe national
councils of several fraternities on
the campus toepermit them to com-
bine with other houses in order to
meet the financial cricis which they
are now experiencing, Turner said.
The plan will be brought to the at-
tention of the Alumni Interfraternity
Council and Dean Joseph A. Bursley.
It is hoped that pressure from these
two sources will force the national
organizations to suspend their rul-
ings prohibiting members of the fra-
ternity to become associated with.
another fraternity.
The matter of campus fraternities
passing out of existence and leaving
debts was discussed by the Judiciary
Committee meeting last night and
will be brought before the Interfra-
ternity Council at its next meeting.

For J-Hop Conduct
House Parties Restricted

Use Of Liquor, Tobacco
To Be Supervised
Dancing after 10 p. m. at house
parties on Friday of the J-Hop week-
end was banned by the Student
Council last night.
The ruling, which must be approv-
ed by the Senate Committee on Stu-
dent Affairs before it becomes effec-
tive, would virtually limit dancing
on that night to the class dance. The
Senate Committee will meet this
week or the early part of next week,
Dean Joseph A. Bursley announced
The action by the Council was
taken at', the request of the J-Hop
committee which claims that dances
on that night would seriously com-
pete with the class dance and en-
danger its success. There are many
fraternity men who would not be
able to attend the J-Hop if dances
are allowed on that night because
they could not stand the double ex-
pense, according to the committee
Two Members Object
Alistair Mitchell, '33E, and Wilbur
Bohnsack, '34, objected to the change
in the ruling on the grounds that
class dances ought to be able "to
stand on their own feet." The ma-
jority of the councilmen, howeyer,
contended that the 'CIu should
protect the dance as much as pos-
sible because of the "hard times."
The complete rules are as follows:
"Dancing must ceas eat 3:00 a. m.,
and lights must be out in the Intra-
mural Building at 3:30 a. m.
"There shall be no spectators, the
ony persons admitted to the hall be-
ing those bearing tickets issued by

League's Modernization Policy
Proves Big Financial Success

Modernization has at last come to
the League, and with it has come an
increase in the centering of women's
activities there, reports of officials
show. Alice Lloyd, dean of women,j
said recently that the efforts to bet-
ter the drawing power of the build-
ing were at last beginning to bear
fruit and the Union is due for some
real competition.
Rumors that the League is finan-
cially embarrassed were spiked re-
cently by statements from Alta At-
kinson, manager, and Ethel McCor-
mick, social director, who claimed
that the new organization has proved
very efficient.
Over 1,600 students in organized
groups met at the League building
during the first nine days of Janu-
ary, according to a survey made by
League officials. "This shows," said
Miss McCormick, "that the girls are
'using the League.'"

300 couples attend the League dances
weekly, it was shown.
The attendance atthe dances has
not yet reached that of Union, how-
ever, for between 225 and 275 couples
dance there every Friday and Satur-
day nights, but the gains made by
the League have made the board feel
confident that they will equal the
Union's patronage soon.
Suggestions by students have been
accepted by the board and every ef-
fort has been made to carry them
out. One of the outstanding im-
provements has been the building of
a shell for the orchestra, which has
improved the tone of the music con-
siderably, it was said.
Tea dancing, popular sport of
Michigan undergraduates, was in-
augurated at the League for the first
time this year. The grill room was
converted into a cabaret with soft
light and music for dancing, and
now between 20 and 80 students find
their way there every afternoon dur-
ing the week. Even on Monday's

Following a lively discussion,'
Adelphia House of Representatives
last night voted down,3 to 1, the
proposition, "Resolved: That Literary
Censorship Be Abolished." Victor
Rabinowitz, '34L, varsity debater,
was the affirmative speaker. The
negative stand was taken by Clifford
L. Ashton, '35.
The present restrictions on inde-
cent literature prohibit its transpor-
-tation by mail, although it may be
expressed, and illegalize its importa-
tion from other countries by any
in e a n s whatsoever. Rabinowitz
stated that "It is not desirable that
this indecent literature be sold, but
thisdoes not include propaganda or
Bolshevist literature. Birth control
literature is censored for other rea-
sons by certain political and relig-
ious groups."
Another proposal, "Resolved: That
Faculty Censorship of Student Pub-
lications at the University of Mich-
igan be Abolished" was supported by
the House.
Nominations for officers included
