GENEVA, Nov. 20 - (P) - Austria
today demanded equality in arma-
ments of a disarmament conference
committee which had heard a pro-
posal from the United States that
the arms trade, from revolvers to
battleships, should be bottled up.
Austria went before the steering
committee of the conference and de-I

now in progress and threatens the
peace of Europe, and that she needs;
more war materials in order to defend
her sovereignty.
Italy announced to the committee
that she believed it useless to proceed !

brutal."
The book was finally published by a
young Boston publisher, and accord-
ing to Mr. Stowe, 3,000 were sold the
first week, and 300,000 the first year.
He said that the book was well-
received in the South until timey found
that it was actually undermining the
institution of slavery even more in-
siduously than was William Lloyd
Garrison, great journalist and aboli-
tionist.
"They then turned on her with a
Vengeance," Mr. Stowe said, "and be-
gan writing bitter comments against
her. She received one letter from
a Southerner with the bloody ear of
a Negro enclosed and the statement
'I hope you will be pleased to see.
how much good your vile book has
done to slavery.' "
Mr. Stowe then commented on the
lives of three other famous Beechers,
Thomas, Henry Ward, and Kather-
ine.
He characterized Katherine Beech-
er as one of the three women who did
much to encourage the education of
women in her day.
Thomas K. Beecher, according to
the speaker, was one of the first
founders of the institutional church.
"If it hadn't been for Henry Ward
Beecher's speeches in England in
1863, defending the cause of the
North, and "Uncle Tom's Cabin," the
English and French would have rec-
ognized the Confederacy," Mr. Stowe
stated.

Mr. Valentine B. Windt and his
co-director, William Halstead, Grad.,
have in this play excellent material
with which to charm Ann Arbor
audiences. Being a brilliant farce
comedy about what is interpreted by
the audience to be the Barrymore
family, the action centers about Tony
Cavendish, his sister, Julie Cavendish,
their mother, Fanny Cavendish, and
a Herbert Dean, whose identity re-
mains somewhat a mystery, but whose
character the audience will recognize
as a very close resemblance to that.

ly refused to divulge whether he is
poking fun directly at the famous and
much imitated Barrymores, but his
play itself indicates this most delight.-

Those who saw th'e picture inter-

Production offering, Charles T., Har-
rell, '35, will play the part of Tony;
Mary Pray, Grad., that of Julie; Sar-

In other major parts will be Virginia

Some of these players are well

their past successes. Others of them

experienced talent and freshness the

singular interest to those who see it.

day gave as the major purpose of the
project the development of an ade-
quate standard of living to replace
the almost primitive conditions now
prevailing in the Tennessee valley.
The TVA, or Tennessee Valley Au-
thority, as it is called, is now engaged
in the construction of the second in
a two-part series of water power-
plants. The first unit, the Wilson Dam,
was completed in 1925 at Muscle
Shoals in the northwest corner of
Alabama on the Tennessee River,'
where the government built its much-
discussed nitrogen-producing plant.'
during the war. The dam cost about
$40,000,000 and is capable of main-
taining a prime power of about 100,-
000 horse power.
The second unit, the Norris Dam,
shown in the photograph above, is
expected to cost approximately the
same amount as the Wilson Dam. It
4 will add approximately 60,000 horse
power to the electrical prime power
now available from the Wilson dam.
It is located about 250 miles upstream
in eastern Tennessee.
Thus an enormous amount of power
will be generated and transmitted
throughout the Tennessee valley re-
gion, which include parts of the Caro-
linas, Virginia, Georgia, Mississippi,
and Kentucky; Professor King said.
This cheap and extensive electrical
power is expected by governmental
authorities to tap the natural re-
sources of the area which have here-
tofore been neglected due to the back-
Architect Praises
1o1sigy Projects
Even though the taxation for the
Federal housing movement "falls
hardest on the modest but indepen-
dent middle class," Prof. Wells Ben-
nett of the School of Architecture
in an article published recently de-
clared that it can be justified and
praised it highly.
Giving his reasons for the plan's
justification, and describing in detail
"common elements" in housing proj-
ects, Professor Bennett asserted that
"there is no doubt that we need better
housing through the nation. In tack-
ling a community housing project,
there must be a local need to justify
it and a sound general proposal for
carrying it out."
He said there could be no model
housing without expert planning.
"Any lasting benefits to the commu-
nity," his article concludes, "will .lie
partly in the final paying out of the
financial investment, but mainly in
increased social stability and civic
pride."

uch projec s as Bouder. jam are
largely self-liquidating, and the power
they are to generate has been con-
tracted for by various local indus-
tries and municipalities, he added.
The TVA, however, hws only a few
minor contracts for its power, accord-
ing to Professor King and he went
on to say that it is essentially an
attempt of the government to directly
subsidize the industrial progress of an
unprogressive area, to raise the scale
of living where at the present time
electricity and modern conveniences
are still regarded as luxuries.
A further significance, which Pro-
fessor King believes will prove of
widespread importance in regard to
Federal control of utilities, lies in
the fact that the government is using
the TVA as "a measuring stick" to
ascertain the cost of the develop-
ment and distribution of power. With
this "measuring stick" the adminis-
tration hopes to be in a position to
accurately determine just what -con-
stitutes a reasonable rate for a private
power utility to charge for its services,
he said.

NATING INSISTENCE UPON THE
BEST IN CORRECTLY TAILORED CLOTHES.
Harvard men, alike in college and as alumni, are
alert to all that makes for progress in apparel;
they were among the first to discover and adopt
the Kover-Zip closure for trousers-they were
quick to see its many advantages over the exposed
metal of the ordinary zipper.
Leading Harvard tailors, creators of fine clothes
for college men, are fully aware of Kover-Zip's
superior qualities.

men, says-"When our patrons
specify trousers or slacks equipped with a slide fastener, we are
prepared to provide for this preference. It is obvious that
the Kover-Zip closure in which no metal shows is more in
keeping with the requirements of good taste than an ordinary
uncovered zipper with its strip of exposed metal."
