Leaders Plan
Number Of Measures Yet
To Be Considered Before
Doors Can Close
Senate Democrats
To Discuss Tariffs
10 Bills To Come Before
Senate; Only 3 To Be
Considered By House
WASHINGTON, April 24.-(P) -
With widely varying views of the
amount of work remaining to be
done before Congress can pack its
bags and head homeward, House and
Senate leaders today began weeding
out the legislative program.
After a visit to the White House,
Speaker Henry T. Rainey and House
Leacter Joseph Byrns thought three
measures might be enough and Con-
gress might get away by May 20.
Senate Leader Joseph T. Robinson
talked with other members of his
party and figured that there were
10 major pieces of legislation yet to
be considered. This would send the
session far into June.
The House chieftains were asked
as they left whether there had been
any discussion of Administration dis-
satisfaction with the leadership of
Mr. Rainey and Mr. Byrns.
"I asked the President if he would
give me a job," replied Mr. Rainey.
"He replied there was no necessity
for that because he wanted me where
I am."
Understanding Reached
The two said they reached an
understanding with the President for
a renewed endeavor quickly to con-
clude the Administration program.
The three measures Mr. Rainey
said were necessary for the House to
pass before adjournment were exten-
sion for another year of the bank
deposit guarantee legislation on its
present terms, the Stock Exchange
Control Bill, and the anti-crime ie.g-
islative program of the Administra-
"I don't see any occasion for spend-
ing much time on the Bank ~eposit
Bill," he said. "It will take a few
days on the Stock Exchange Bill, but
should not take many. So we could be
ready on the House side to quit in
10 days, except for the recovery funds
or PWA appropriations to be taken
care of, which will go through just
like that."
On the Senate side. Mr. Robinson
said a Democratic conference would
be held Monday night on the recipro-
cal tariff measure and possibly some
other legislative proposals. Silver was
not included in the program, nor was
it specified for consideration at the
Monday conference.
Program Doubtful
Some big "ifs" were marked beside
some of the 10 proposals included in
the Senate program. As announced
by Mr. Robinson, after a meeting of
the 25 Senators who compose the
Democratic steering and policy com-
mittees, the program includes recip-
rocal tariff, stock market regulation.
corporation bankruptcy relief, mu-
nicipal bankruptcy relief, com-
munications commission, amend-
ments to the Farm Act, pure food and
drug regulation, loans to private in-
dustry, RFC import and financing.
and the Wagner Labor Board Bill.
Action on the Copeland Pure Food
and Drugs Bill was marked "pos-
sible," and on the Wagner measure

"if it is ready."
Two measures not listed on the ten-
bill schedule, but on which final ac-
tion is expected this week, are the
sugar control and tax bills. The
House adopted the conference re-
port on the sugar bill today, and the,
Senate probably will complete con-
gressional action tomorrow. The tax
bill conferees will resume work to-
morrow, with prospects of a final
agreement late tomorrow or Thurs-
The Board in Control of Student
Publications will hold its meeting
for the appointment of the man-
aging editor and business manager
of The Michigan Daily, the Mich-
iganensian, and the Gargoyle at
2:30 p.m., May 18, 1934.
Each applicant for a position is
requested to file seven copies of his
letter of application with the Audi-
tor of Student Publications not
later than May 12, 1934, for the use
of the members of the Board. Car-
bon copies, if legible, will be satis-

Claims That Japan's Doctrine
Will Stop Capital Flow To China

The new Japanese "white-hands-off
China" policy which has recently
been declared by Nippon will result
mainly to the disadvantage of China
in respect to her internal economic
development, said Prof. Charles F.
Remer of the department of eco-
nomics in an interview yesterday,
Saying that the Japanese move was
more in the nature of a "trial bal-
loon" to test the effect of such a pol-
icy on the rest of the world, Prof es-
sor Remer pointed out that if such
ar policy were actually carried into
practice it would act to restrict cap-
ital movements from England and the
United States which is imperativefor
the well-being and industrial develop-
ment of China.
The tentative statement of policy
which has been made, he said, is con-
trary to the international agreement
contained in the Open Door policy,
if the Open Door policy is interpreted
to mean an open door for invest-
ments as well as an open door for
The Japanese motive behind the
act, which is ostensibly to prevent
foreign nations from "aiding China by
lending military assistance in the

form of arms shipments, is to restrict
the investmentof funds in Chinese
industry, Professor Remer main-
tained. It would be definitely to the
interests of the Japanese nation if
all capital movements to China and
profits and interest accruing from
them could be controlled by a Japan
which would have power over the al-
location of funds to be invested in the
Chinese interior.
How a policy of this type could
be enforced by Japan, against the
interests of the large Western powers,
is hard to say, Professor Remer said.
If the Japanese mean to confine
their policy to only the question of
military equipment, he said, there
would be little difficulty, as this would
be only a new interpretation of an
agreement which has existed in the
past. However, he continued, if Japan
means that all capital investments
in China coming from other nations
must go through Japanese hands,
then certain problems might arise,
which are as follows : First, it is con-
trary to the recognized interpretation
of the Open Door, second, it is con-
trary to the interests of the United
States and other powers, and third,
it is contrary to the interests of

Found!A Rule That
The Dean's Office
Does Not Enforce
Male University students who dar-
ingly step out of their rooming houses
at night, going for a little refresh-
ment at drug stores and places, are
violating one of the University's old-
est rules.
The rule was passed by the Board
of Regents 'way back in a simpler
century and has been discovered by
the diligent researches of the Gar-
goyle staff, which goes in for that sort
of thing. It will appear, along with
other rules of the fathers, in the next
issue of the campus comic.
The regulation reads, if the editors
are as accurate as they hope they
are, as follows: "No male student
shall be permitted to leave the prem-
ises of his rooming house after 9 =..m.
without the permission of an author-
ized University official."
It applies to men who room in fra-
ternitynhouses quite as well as those
who make their residences in room-
ing houses, for at the time of its
passage there were no fraternities al-
lowed on campus and the regulation
was for all male students. Having
never been repealed, it still is effec-

Dean Bates Says That There
Are Not Enough Good Lawyers

Although the bar is overcrowded
with so many mediocre lawyers that
they cannot all earn a decent living,
there are not enough really good law-

Although he admitted that there
are "plenty of rascals practicing law,"
and that "lawyers are saying among
themselves that the practice has de-

fact that under the leadership of the
American Bar Association, working
in co-operation with state bar as-
sociations, the profession as a whole
is attempting a sweeping reform.
"The tendency in this country will
be, therefore, toward a better prac-
tice," he said.
Far from painting pictures of bril-
