For Tax Bill
To Alter Act
Senate Finance Committee
Adds $72,000,000 more
To $238,000,000

iree Die As Fire Sweeps Texas Hotel

Ineome Taxes May
Jump 50 Per Cent
LaFollette Proposal Will
Increase Levy On Higher
Income Brackets
WASHINGTON, April 3.-(A)-
Amendments that would radically re-
write the $330,000,000 tax bill appear
likely to keep the Senate busy for the
rest of the week.
Chairman Harrison of the Finance
Committee had the right of way at
today's session in bringing forward
the committee alterations that added
about $72,000,000 in estimated rev-
enue to the $258,000,000 measure
passed by the House.
After that the field will be open
for individual amendments, of which
about 15 will be pushed forward. If all
were adopted the income tax rate
would be increased by 50 per cent and
taxes on salaries and bonuses above
$75,000 would reach 80 per cent.
LaFollette Would Increase Taxes
Senator La Follette (Rep., Wisc.),
who proposed the 50 per cent in-
crease, would raise normal income
taxes from 4 to 6 per cent, and in-
crease the surtaxes on the higher
brackets to a maximum of 71 per cent
on incomes of over $1,000,000.
Senator Gore (Dem., Okla.), who
offered the proposal to cut down high
salaries by the high tax, would allow
no deductions above the $75,000 mark.
Other amendments would increase
income taxes 100 per cent in time of
war, levy a 10 cents a pound tariff
pn imported copper, abolish the one
cent a gallon gasoline tax and repeal
the excise tax on candy.
While the Senate worked with
taxes, the House today had another
chance to get at private bills, an op-
portunity long awaited by some mem-
bers who have up measures to help
individual constituents or small

per cent more than the 3,945,568 car-

Leaders Object ' o
Vote Against Jews
MADISON, Wisc., April 3. - (Big
Ten) - An undercurrent of objection
against the race prejudice exhibited
during the recent elections by the
decisive defeat of Jewish candidates
for office was voiced last week by
various campus leaders at the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin.
Many students who refused to be

as disappointed over the fact that

Mathematical Manuscripts On
Exhibition In General Library

University students have an op-
portunity at this time to view a col-
lection of ancient and oriental mathe-
matical manuscripts equaled only at
Columbia in this country, according
to Professor Louis C. Karpinski of the
mathematical department who has
been instrumental in preparing this
exhibit, now in the lower hall of the
general library.
The manuscripts, books, and de-
vices on display were gathered by Pro-
fessor Karpinski while he was on sab-
batical leave last semester. They were
purchased by him personally in book-
shops and other appropriate places
in Athens, Cairo, Jerusalem, Beirut,
and Constantinople. Dr. Max Meyer-
hoff of Cairo gave valuable assist-
ance there in selecting the Arabic
manuscripts and works which consti-
tute the finest part of the exhibition.
The purchases were made possible
for the University through the philan-
thropy of Tracy W. McGregor, Wash-
ington, D.C., member of the American
Historical Association. Mr. McGregor
is interested in the University by vir-
tue of his position on the Board of
Governors of the Clements Library
President Will
Extend Holiday
Into Next Week
MIAMI, Fla., April 3. -(P) -Presi-
dent Roosevelt sailed into new south-
ern waters today, determined to con-
tinue his happy vacation cruise into
next week.
His ship was pointed south late
Monday after a consultation with
Congressional leaders had assured
him there was no need for his re-
turn to the capital this week.
With the word "all well and happy"
the yacht Nourmahal proceeded to its
new base today, in the vicinity of
Elbow Key Light, Cay Sal Banks.
The President's two elder sons,
James and Elliott, were en route to
his fishing ground from here by
naval plane. They expected to return
To keep fueled for the extendedj
trip, the destroyer U.S.S. Ellis was
joined today by its base ship, the*
destroyer U.S.S. Tattnall, which set
out from here Monday night to over-
take the Presidential party.
In extending his fishing cruise, the
President set the record for recent
years in absence from the capital
during a session of Congress, but his
close contacts by radio with Capitol
Hill gave him the needed assurances
to go on for a few more days.
The trip originally was scheduled I
to end on Friday. In all probabilityS
Mr. Roosevelt will remain on the open
seas until late next week.

of natural history. The original Mc-
Gregoi fund is dedicated to the pur-
chase of Americana for the small
colleges of the United States which
otherwise might find difficulty in de-
veloping collections of historical lore.
The University of Michigan has be-
come eligible to draw from the fund
only through a rare exception made
under the express wish of Mr. Mc-
The visitor to the library will find
in the collection, besides the first
class Arabic display, Chinese, Hindu,
Greek, Egyptian, and Hebrew manu-
scripts and books. Some of these are
comparatively modern works. Many
are on subjects other than pure
mathematics, such as astronomy and
physiology, but all are more or -less
related to the field of mathematical
Probably the most interesting por-
tion of the exhibit, certainly the most
valuable, is the Egyptian section,
which includes several bits of ancient
Egyptian mathematics inscribed on
Papyri at the beginning of our Chris-
tian era. According to Professor Kar-
pinski these are of the greatest value
to the field of mathematical science.
They have been studied and written
up by Frank Robbins, assistant to
President Ruthven, in articles which
have caused a great deal of attention
in the mathematical world.
Dr. Robbins and Professor Karpin-
ski have co-operated in writing ar-
ticles on various other of the manu-
scripts presented in the display and
these too have caused much comment
abroad. A reprint of one of Professor
Karpinski's articles in a Turkish mag-
azine is included in the exhibit as in-
dicative of foreign interest.
Extension 'Of
White Cross
Drive Sought
An extension of the White Cross
seal campaign for the benefit of crip-
pled children until the end of this
week was announced yesterday by
Wilfred Shaw, campaign director.
About half of the county quota of
100,000 seals have been sold, and
there is high hope that the entire
quota will be filled by Saturday, Mr.
Shaw said.
This is the first year in which the
public has been the object of a di-
rect seal-selling appeal for this cause.
Formerly, state and local societies
have been supported only by private
contributions, but revenue from this
source has declined the past two
Receipts of the campaign will be
equally divided between aid for crip-
pled children in Washtenaw County
and state and national societies for
such work.

Illinois Ballot
Will Be First
New Deal Test
Off-Year Primary Is Seen
As Indicator Of Relative
Sirength Of Parties
WASHINGTON, April 3.-- (')- A
nation-wide ballot box test of the
"new deal" will start a week from,
Illinois voters, lining up for the first
of the primaries of the national off-
year elections, will inaugurate activ-
ities that in the next seven months
will reach into every state. November
will finish the election of 35 sen-
ators, about the same number of gov-
ernors, and the entire House.
Republicans are voicing openly the
hope that the usual off-year tide will
restore them to many offices they lost
in the Roosevelt landslide of 1932.
Democrats predict that gains in the
Senate will offset an immaterial loss
of seats in the House.
The Illinois primaries next week
will mark the start, but will give
little indication of the outcome of the
whole race. There is neither a guber-
natorial nor a senatorial contest in
that state this year.
Speaker Rainey brought the White
House angle strongly into the picture,
however, when he reported advices
from his friends that financial in-
terests in New York were planning
to donate in an effort to defeat him
because of his stand for Rooseveltian
In addition the Illinois primaries
will 'see the choosing of party candi-
dates for 36 other house seats. In the
1932 elections, the Republicans lost
their majority of the Illinois House
delegation when the Democrats won
six new seats.
The battling will get underway in
earnest next month, with primaries
in six states. The firt comes May 1,
in South Dakota and Alabama, where
governorships are at stake in addition
to House seats.
The first Senatorial contest will be
reached in Indiana May 8, with Sen-
ator Robinson, Republican incumbent,
fighting for re-election. Democrats
are planning a warm fight to gain this
seat, and three majority House mem-
bers - Ludlow, Pettengill and Mrs.
Jenckes - are reported to be angling
for the Democratic nomination.
The next week in May will witness
the climax to a warm contest in both
parties in Pennsylvania. Gov. Pinchot
is seeking to wrest the Republican
nomination from Senator Reed, while
there is an equally warm fight in the
Democratic ranks.
Joseph Guf fey, national committee-
man, and Roland Morris, former
American ambassador to Japan, both
are after the Democratic nomination.
The gubernatorial contest also is be-
ing fought strongly on both sides.
The same day, May 15, Senator
Kean, of New Jersey, meets his first
test in the Republican primary. He
probably will be faced in the fall by
Gov. A. Harry Moore, a Democrat.

Attacks Roosevelt

-Associated Press Photo
Something of a furor was caused in
Washington when a letter was made
public quoting George W. Christians
(above) of Chattanooga, Tenn., as
saying he told President Roosevelt
that the latter would be "only the
Kerensky" of America's revolution.
Christians is a founder of an organi-
zation called the Crusaders for Eco-
nomic Liberty.

Predict Delay
In Starting Of
Welfare Work
Elliott, Local Official, Says
Shift From CWA May
Retard Work Slightly
Delay in getting the local welfare
construction projects fully under way
was predicted yesterday by C. H.
Elliott, county welfare administra-
Although work will begin Wednes-
day as planned, it will probably not
be in full swing until Saturday, be-
cause of the difficulties involved in
shifting from CWA to local welfare
work, he said.
Those of the 1,085 men left jobless
by the discontinuance of CWA work
here last Saturday who will be given
work by the welfare administration
will be notified when and where to
report. Investigation of those fami-
lies who have been forced on to wel-
fare lists is being carried on by social
case workers, according to Elliott.
Trouble loomed, meanwhile, over
the wages to be paid the welfare
workers. The wage scale adopted by
the commission representing busi-
ness, labor, and the welfare admin-
istration, was rejected Monday by
Louis Nims, state work division en-
gineer and state welfare commission
member. He declared the wages were
too high, and intends to further ex-
plain his objections in a letter soon.
Fred Norris, representative of or-
ganized labor and chairman of the
special commission, yesterday de-
clared his intention of proltesting
Nims' action on the ground that the
state authorities do not have the
right to refuse to accept the wage
