Despite the fact that it swept the
second ward and had comfortable
majorities in the third and fifth, the
amendment to repeal the east of Di-

achieve even a majority. It had need-

ment was supported, and in all wards
partially or totally within the pro-
hibited area it was strongly opposed.

Prof. Max S. Handman of the de-

members of the Student Press Club
on "The Problems of the New Deal"
at the regular meeting of the club
last night.
Professor Handman expressed a
belief that the country must ulti-

of business and industry. It is im-

take a part in the lives of the people.
Striking at the fundamentals of
the capitalistic system, he intimated
that immediate recovery would be ob-

Regulations Of
Student Affairs
To Be Codified
Action Of Undergraduate
Council Last Spring Is
Behind Move
University regulations in regards to
student conduct are being codified by
a committee of the University Senate
and a definite announcement on the
subject will be made within a few
weeks, Prof. Calvin . Davis, of the
School of Education, committee
chairman, declared yesterday.
The committee was appointed in
1932 to take up the matter, and has
had six successive chairmen during
the last two years.
Action on the codification was
spurred by the Undergraduate Coun-
cil on Student Affairs last spring
shortly after its creation, when it
asked that a definite set of regula-
tions be drawn up to govern student
conduct, on which the faculty disci-
plinary committee would base its ac-

plinary cases are treated each on
their own merits, the general prin

Proposal Made To'
Income Tax And
High Salaries

Swingout Is Abolished By
Senate Committee; Council





WASHINGTON, April 2. i-(R) -
A barrage of amendments, including
proposals to increase the income tax
rate by 50 per cent and to bring down
high salaries was leveled at the $330,-
000,000 Revenue Bill as it was taken
up for the first time today by the
Pat Harrison (Dem., Miss.), chair-
man of the Finance Committee which
revised the $258,000,000 House-ap-
proved bill by adding $72,000,000 in
new taxes and taxation savings,
opened debate with a plea for prompt
"The bill distributes the tax burden
fairly among taxpayers and will in no
way impede legitimate business
transactions," he said, adding that its
two main purposes were to raise
much-needed revenue and to make
it more difficult for the wealthy to
avoid their just share of taxation
Senator Robert M. LaFollette, Jr.,
(Rep., Wis.), whose proposal to in-
crease the normal income taxes from
4 to 6 per cent and surtaxes all
along the line with a maximum of
71 per cent on incomes over $1,000,-
000 as against 59 per cent in the bill,
was lost in committee, gave notice
that he would make an effort to have
it adopted on the floor.
Senator Thomas P. Gore (Dem.,
'Okla.) offered amendments which
would disallow deductions from gross
income of salaries and bonuses paid
by corporations in excess of $75,000
to individuals and tax all income
from such source over that figure 80
per cent.
Elimination of the provision in
existing law permitting one corpora-
tion to deduct from gross income div-
idends received from another cor-
poration was proposed by Senator
Borah, (Rep., Idaho).
He also wants to take away the
credit for taxes paid by foreign sub-
sidiaries of domestic corporations and
to repeal the clause allowing corpora-
tions to file consolidated returns.
Political Neophyte
Seeks Experience;
Arrested And Fined
Dean Emerson, '34, president of the
University of Michigan Young Dem-
ocrats Club and ardent supporter of
the repeal amendment, was arrested
and forced to pay a $10 fine before
Judge Jay H. Payne yesterday for
violating the city election laws.
Emerson was distributing handbills
within 100 feet of an election booth,
a punishable offense in Michigan.
William M. Hollands, dry alderman
of the first ward, had him arrested,
and although the police were inclined
to believe that Emerson should be
set free with a warning, Hollands,
insisted upon the arrest and punish-.
Also actively interested in politics,
Emerson was elected president of the
democratic group on campus this
year. He has taken 27 hours of polit-
ical science and engaged in the beer
battle, he said, to gain some "prac-
tical political experience."

Traditional Significance Is
Lost, Student Members
Of Committee Say
May 1 Is Deadline
For Council Action
Faculty And Students On
Committee Favor Some
Spring Function
Swingout, long a traditional spring
function for Michigan's graduating
classes, was abolished yesterday by
the Senate Committee on Student
Affairs and the Undergraduate Coun-
cii was requested to formulate plans
for some ceremony to take its place.'
The reason for the decision, which
had been under consideration for
some time, was that the affair had
lost its traditional significance and
that all the reasons for having it
were now gone, student members of
the committee said last night.
Suggest Taking Pledges
Students on the committee had
been given until yesterday to present
some plan for holding the function
to the faculty members which would
be acceptable to them. The students
suggested that the seniors take
pledges that they would engage in no
disorderly conduct, but this sugges-
tion met with the faculty members'
disapproval. It was for this reason
that the matter has been turned over
oto the Undergraduate Council.
The Council has been granted until
May 1 to present its plan, and Gil-
bert Bursley, president of the organi-
zation, last night said that a series
of meetings to discuss the subject
would be held immediately after the
spring vacation.
Some Function Favored
Both student and faculty members
on the Senate committee believed
that some senior spring function
should be held, but the majority was
opposed to having any meeting in
Hill Auditorium after the march.
The affair, some members said last
night, would probably be designated
Senior Day or Cap and Gown Day
and might be linked with Homecom-
ing. There would be a parade but no
meeting in Hill Auditorium and Pres-
ident Alexander G. Ruthven prob-
ably would not speak, these members
800 Freshmen
Get Warnings
About Grades
Only Reports Having Two
Unsatisfactory Marks To
Be Sent Home
Unsatisfactory grades for the first
five-week period are being malled to
approximately 800 freshmen in the
literary college today, Assistant Dean
W. R. Humphries announced yester-
The reports are of two classes, he
said. In the first, including 450
freshmen, are those who either have
five-week grades of D or E in two or
more subjects, or who were placed on
probation in February and who re-
ceived only one unsatisfactory grade
thus far.
The other 350 will receive unsatis-
factory reports in only one subject.'
The Dean's office hassent letters
to the parents of those in the first
class, but will not send letters in the
case of those who have gotten only
one D or E.
"Although the report on the whole
is rather unsatisfactory," Professor

Humphries said, "it must be remem-
bered that five-week reports last se-
mester were just as bad. However, by
the end of the semester most of these
grades had been raised, and I believe
that such will be the case this semes-
Five-week reports are issued only
to freshmen, and are planned to serve
as a special warning in addition to
the regular eight-week reports which
will be issued following vacation.
No comparisons can be made with
the numbers of unsatisfactory reports
in former years, because this is the
first year that the literary college has
adopted this system.
