(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 16. - (P) -
A direct Federal "bounty" for avia-
tion, replacing scrapped airmail con-
tracts, received strong administration
thought today.
An idea behind such an undis-
guised bounty would be to build up
stronger aerial defenses in case of

Graham Topic
Distruction To N a t i o n a1
Reserves Is Discussed By
Conservation Professor
The insect is much more efficient
in his warfare than is man, Prof.
Samuel A. Graham of the forestry
school stated in his discussion "Sub-
terranean Attacks on the Forest,"
over the University night radio hour
Thursday evening. "These subter-
ranean enemies attack our trees be-
fore we are aware of their presence,
and small trees may be killed out-
right while we stand helplessly by,"
he said.
Professor Graham pointed out that
the white grub and beetle do great
damage to the numerous tree nur-
suries, and that several million trees
were destroyed on the National For-
est plantations in the Lake States
during the past season. An equally
serious situation exists in nearly all
of the various state units, the speak-
er declared.
"The loss was much heavier than
usual this year for two reasons: first,
the prevalence of unusually dry 'con-
ditions prevented the recovery of
many trees that were only moderate-
ly damaged, and which a normal
rainfall would probably have grown
new roots to replace those eaten,
and secondly, an unusually heavy
grub infestation prevailed," Profes-
sor Graham stated.
The lack of governmental aid in
combating this pestilence was de-
plored by Professor Graham, as he
pointed out that "at present not one
per cent is being spent directly for
research on forest insects in Michi-
gan by either the State or Federal
government," and that although it
is difficult to estimate damage in
dollars and cents,

Assails Oil Code

Another disclosure today was that
Comptroller General J. R. McCarl,
watchdog of Federal expenditures, is
shaping a stop-gap against excessive
profits on army-navy airplane con-
tracts. This move is at Congressional
Whatever the new Federal plans,
it appeared that the. airmail scrap
is far from over.
Walter F. Brown, Hoover postmas-
ter general, said that charges of con-
spiracy and "illegal" acts by his ad-
ministration, as put forward by his
successor were completely lacking in
Will Face Questioners
Waiving immunity, Mr. Brown ar-
ranged to tell the Senate airmail in-
vestigating committee on Monday his,
version of the tangle.
Airmail contract-holder protests
continued to arrive. One company
official asserted Postmaster General
Farley himself had "been misled in
this airmail matter."
The justice and postoffice depart-
ments prepared to fight in a New
York Federal court today a restrain-
ing order against the contract can-
cellation and army mail flying.
The "bounty" plan under consid-
eration by Presidential aides was de-
scribed authoritatively as similar in a
way to the European system. It car-
ries some resemblance, also, to Presi-
dent Roosevelt's plan for aiding
ocean carriers.
Mr. Roosevelt's steamship system,
in short, would call a subsidy a sub-
sidy and not an ocean mail contract.
Two Main Alternatives
Two main alternatives are being
considered for carrying the airmail.
(It has been stated officially that
the army would not fly it for long).
1. The government could devise
some other plan for Federal opera-
tion, a system considered highly im-
2. The mail could be carried for
direct hire, on something close to a
poundage basis.
Reports here that the Great North-
ern and Northern Pacific railway
were negotiating for the purchase
of Northwest Airways, caused offi-
cials to recall that under such a
purchase the ban could be lifted to
permit that outfit to bid for mail fly-

Strange Donatio n By Alumnus,
Reveals Change In College Life

Two notices of chapel services writ-
ten and signed by Dr. James B. An-
gell, former president of the Uni-
versity, a notice of admission to the
University, two receipts for fees paid,
a letter from President Angell, and
a clipping from The Daily, all dated
1892, have been given to the Uni-
versity by Gaylord W. Gillis, '96, of
Chapel services at that time were
regular parts of the University's pro-
gram and were held in University
Hall in what is now the Registrar's
The notice of admission lists the
subjects that were accepted from the
preparatory school, the same as is
done now, but differs in that the.
courses are all marked "P" for pass,
rather than by the grading system in
use now.
In the letter from President An-
gell, written entirely in longhand,
Mr. Gillis was asked for a detail re-
garding his registration as a student
in the University.
The clipping from The Daily con-
cerns a baseball tournament that was
being held between Delta Kappa Ep-
silon, Alpha Delta Phi, Psi Upsilon,
and Zeta Psi fraternities, at the close
of which the victorious players were
to be banqueted by the other three

Mr. Gillis had the articles in a

scrapbook and they were received

sistant to President Ruthven. The
degree granted the former was that

longer given.




Starts Planning To



New and Used

WASHINGTON, Feb. .1. - O)F-
By the yardstick of past failings that
have been charged to the New York
Stock Exchange, a Senate committee
is measuring off the amount of Fed-
eral regulation to impose.
Charges now spectacular, now
buried under a maze of technicalities,
of irregular dealings that brought no
good to the small investor, has come
time and again through the long
months of the committee's inquiry.
Out of these disclosures came the
administration's bill to regulate the
exchanges. The testimony during the
past week has brought evidence by
which the committee will seek to bol-
ster some of its past findings. In de-
bate later, a reference to the com-
mittee records will bring a concrete
illustration of many of the practices
at which the measure is aimed.

"Students should be better off with

he said.
The store will close tonight at 9
p. in., and will afterwards be opened
from 9:30 a. m. to 7:30 p. m. daily,
except on Saturdays when it will re-
main open until 9 p. m. It will not be
open on Sundays, Dawson stated. A
guard will be stationed at the store
day and night.
In the store all the brands of
liquors and their prices will be posted
on the wall. Patrons must fill out a
purchase slip before any liquor can
be bought. Each buyer must be 21
years of age or over, and students
complying with that requirement may
make purchases. While a limit of
five wine gallons has been placed on
the amount of liquor that can be
sold to one patron, the limit is so
high that few persons will be affected
by the regulation.
