Sen. Harrison Threatens
To Bring Measure To

Glass Banking Bill
Hinders Legislation
Blaine To Call Up Repeal
Soon; Committees Are
Told To Rush Hearings
WASHINGTON, Jan. 24. - (P')-
The 3.05 per cent beer and wine bill
ran into a threat of delay today
which drew from Senate Democrats
a warning that they would not'toler-
ate any dilatory tactics.
Sen. Harrison, ranking Democrat
on the Senate finance committee,
served notice that if there was any
unreasonable delay in the commit-
tee's consideration of the bill there
would be a move to bring the bill
to the floor by a vote of the Senate.
In Finance Committee
Chairman Smoot was noncom-
mnital about when the committee
would be called together. Though he
gave assurance that it would be
"within a few days," he said he did
riot know whether a meeting could
be held this week.
With his beer bill tied up in the
finance committee, Sen. Blaine (R.,
Wis.) announced that he would move
to call up in the Senate the pending
resolution to repeal the Eighteenth
Amendment as soon as the Senate
has disposed of the pending Glass
bank bill, expected by leaders within'
a day or two, and the treasury post-
office appropriation bill.
The beer bill was sent to the fi-
nance committee yesterday, for study
of its revenue features, after receiv-
ing the approval of the judiciary
Secretary M Is testified before the
House ways and means committee
that beer alone would raise from
$125,000,000 to $150,000,000. Harri-
son said Mills would be asked to ap-
pear also before the finance commit-
To Hold Hearings
Smoot announced that his com-
mittee would hold hearings on the
measure, which foreshadowed the
possibility of. further :delay,\though

Senate Democrats are determined
to bring the beer bill to a vote at
this session of Congress as it is one
of the most important features in
their party plans for raising revenue.

Dr. Bell Explains Program Of
Physical Education For Women

Huge Building
Plan Annulled
By Legislature

Nearly three-quarters of all women
seniors in the University have never
taken any required physical educa-
tion work here, it was brought out
in a statement issued yesterday by
Dr. Margaret Bell, director of physi-
cal education for women.
In her statement Dr. Bell gave a
complete report of the women's
physical education activities as they
are now being carried out here. The
statement follows:
There seems to be a real desire
on the part of many students to
better understand the Physical Edu-
cation program for women. This pro-
grain includes both intramurals and
the required work. There is no in-
tercollegiate phase.
Before presenting the tabulated
data in regard to women's physical
education, it should be said that for
the last ten years all such data, in
addition to studies on the various
aspects of related problems, such as
student attitudes in regard to recrea-
tion, required physical education,
and relation of health to activity,
are available in the departmental
files. All individuals really interested
in this question are encouraged to
use these records.
All women students whose medical
classification allows them unlimited
activity are further classified accord-
ing to the amount and kind of highI
school experience in physical educa-
tion. Any student whose physical ex-
amination indicates a need for pos-
ture training is advised to take work
in corrective gymnastics. Girls who
have not played at least two team
sports are asked to obtain a semes-
ters experience in hockey, basketball
and others. In the fall of 1932, 89
per cent of the entering freshmen
had met this requirement in their
high schools. Those who have not
had some training in rhythmic work;
either folk dancing, tap, or interpre-

tative dancing, are asked to take at
least one season of tap or rhythms.
Thirty per cent of the freshmen
are now enrolled in such classes.
These requirements fulfilled, the
girls are advised to specialize in
sports or in rhythm-to attain a cer-
tain degree of skill in either field.
She may choose her activity from
any of those offered. During this
next semester about 90 per cent of
the freshmen and all of the sopho-
mores will be free to elect any of the
activities on the required program.
In the fall outdoor season 1932,
registration in required classes was

were made.
Applause greeted the suggestion of
the name of "Uncle Bob," as he is
known to students and townspeople
alike, as a possible mayoralty can-
didate, and numerous speeches of
confidence and support followed his
statement that while he had not ac-
tively sought the post he would not
be unwilling to enter the race. Sev-

'Technocracy' To Be
Put In New Dictionary
NEW YORK, Jan. 24.-P)-
Technocracy may have "ceased to
exist" as far as former Columbia
University associates of Chief
Technocrat Howard Scott are con-
cerned, but the word is shortly to
be given dictionary standing.
Dr. Frank C. Vizetelly, lexico-
grapher, said today that he had
included Technocracy in his list
of new words.
"Technocracy," he added, "has
been in my files since 1919. I de-
cided several months ago that I
would use it this year."
Coroner's Jury
Considers Case
Of Rubin Gurk
Recommends Revocation
Of Auto License For
Death Car Driver
A coroner's jury, called to hear tes-
timony in regard to the death of Mrs.
George McCallum, wife of the city
poor commissioner, in a street acci-
dent last week, last night recom-
mended the revocation of the auto
license of Rubin Gurk, driver of the
car which struck the woman.
Prosecutor Albert J. Rapp, who
participated in the hearing, refused
to indicate what furtherkaction
would be taken against Gurk until
he had read the complete transcript
of the testimony. The accident also
resulted in serious injury to Mrs.
Ethel Shadford
Gurk testified at the hearing he
was driving his truck at a speed no
greater than 12 miles per hour at the
time of the accident. He admitted
taking a wide swing in turning from
Broadway avenue into Maiden Lane
and that the two women were not
more than six feet from the left curb
when he struck them but claimed
that the wide turn had been caused
by a large truck which obstructed
the street at the intersecion.-.He
also admitted that he had stopped
only long enough to allow his 16-
year-old son, victor, to go to the
scene of the accident and that he
had then continued to a Maiden
Lane greenhouse. He excused himself
with the statement that he had be-
come "excited and afraid."
Gurk said that his foot brakes had
beeen working "fair," but that they'
had often failed to' hold. The emer-
gency brake, he said, had been re-
moved. He told the jury that he had
been confined in the State Psycho-
pathic Hospital here and in the Pon-
tiac State Hospital for the insane
and that he had had a driver's li-
cense here for more than a year. He
said that he was blind in one eye.
The boy, Victor, testified that his
father had refused him permission
to drive the truck on the previous
Sunday because of faulty brakes. De-
tective Clifford West of the Ann Ar-
bor police department, who examined
the brakes after the accident, said
that they were in good condition.
Prof. Clarence F. Kessler of the
Engineering college, who witnessed
the accident, said that Gurk was
driving at a speed of approximately
40 miles per hour.

Regulations Are Necessary At
Michigan, Dean Lloyd Asserts

A new college for women was open-
ed this fall in Bennington, Vt., where
there are no regulations as to hours,
choice of curriculum, or examina-
tions. In general this plan is per-
haps feasible for a small selected
group, but on a campus the size of
Michigan, however, more regulations
are necessary, Dean Alice Lloyd de-
clared yesterday.
.At Bennington an attempt is be-
ing made to reach the true aims of
education through a new progressive
form of teaching which advocates
more freedom for students. They are
subject to no restrictions regarding
what courses they wish to pursue,
but are advised to select those for
which they have the greatest inter-
Dean Lloyd commended this ex-
periment but in regard to Michigan
she declared "when in our large uni-
versities every student is vitally in-
terested in education, greater free-
dom will be indicated. At the present'
time, too large a percentage of those
enrolled in an educational institution
resist educatinn" "One nf the ex-

they cannot find tinie enough to
cover all the material they wish to,
according to Frederick H. Kent,
treasurer of the college. During the
two-month recess at present, two are
in Washington watching the activi-
ties of Congress, one is in South
America to study political conditions,
and two of the social students arc
studying the juvenile courts.
The conditions in the University
are much different, Dean Lloyd says,
for "until the student's attitude be-
comes much more mature intellec-
tually and socially, supervision in
choice of courses and in social affairs
seems to be indicated. Especially is
it so where large state funds are be-
ing expended for them."
To illustrate her point she told
of a woman on campus a few years
ago who had elected four courses in
German and one in precious gems
which she had been advised was a
"pipe." The student was of a Ger-
man family and such a program was
absurdly narrow and limited.

Dail Eireann Is Chosen'
To Elect President; Few
Arrests Are Made
DUBLIN, Irish Free State, Jan. 24.
-A')-When the polls closed tonight
in the Irish Free State election it
appeared there had been less violence
reported than instances of fraudul-
ent voting. The balloting was for
the selection of a Dail Eireann,
which in turn will elect a president.
With indications that the vote
would total the largest ever record-
ed in the history of the republic
came widespread reports of "persona-
tion," consisting of voting for some-
one else, voting under the name of
dead persons or balloting under fic-
titious names.
In one Dublin district, one-third
of those who appeared at their poll-
ing place before noon found that
others already had voted for them.

tion charges was reported inDublin

IRautenstrauch Withdrawal
Won't Impair Research
Activities, Leader Says
NEW YORK, Jan. 24.--(P)-Tech-
nocracy's civil war flared on the
fronts today.
Howard Scott, the self-styled "di-
rector of Technocracy," issued a
statement declaring that the with-
drawal of a Columbia University
professor and three others from his
group "in! no way impaired the re-
search activities of Technocracy,"
which, he explains, will continue in
new quarters.
Prof. Walter Rautenstrauch, head
of the Industrial Engineering De-
partment of Columbia, declared in
an address that the "flag of Tech-
nocracy" had been "hauled down"
from the Columbia masthead by the
resignation of himself and his three
associates yesterday and later said
that their own survey on the Uni-
versity campus was going ahead
"just as if nothing happened."
In other quarters it was learned
that the group calling itself the
"Continental Committee of Tech-
nocracy" broke with Scott last week,
but made no such announcement
awaiting the scism in the ranks
which was announced last night.
Scott, who has shunned interviews
Iand who often has been referred to
as a "man of mystery," handed out
typewritten statements of his posi-
tion in a skyscraper office filled with
drawing boards and charts.
When someone asked about re-
ports that he had been ill, he said:
"I had the flu, but there's nothing
wrong with me snow-except maybe
my head." He put his hand to his
