Order To

Veto By President
Is Seen As Likely
Orthodox Appropriation
Replaced By Bill For
Money Expansion
WASHINGTON, March 22.- (A') -
A double blow of veto-overriding pro-
portions was struck at the President
today when the House voted not only
to pay the $2,000,000,000 soldiers'
bonus now but also to use the cur-
rency inflation method of payments.
Appl use and window-rattling cow-
boy yells greeted preliminary deci-
sions which led to final passage of
the Patman Bill by a 318 to 90 vote.
And the 207 to 204 choice of the
Patman currency expansion plan
against the orthodox Vinson-Amer-
ican Legion Bill created an uproar
that looked and sounded like a riot.
The Patman bill now goes to the
Senate, and no one knows what will
happen to it there although polls have
shown a majority in favor of cash
payment. Even leaders concede that
the House could muster the necessary
two-thirds to override a Presidential
veto. The Senate is another story.
Months ago, the President ex-
pressed hi opposition to paying the
bonus now on the ground that it
would interfere with his recovery pro-
gram and at the same time give the
soldiers something they were not due
to receive until 1945. He informed
party leaders he would veto it, al-
though there have been sugestions
of compromise.
Only recently, Donald Richberg, the
No. 1 Roosevelt spokesman, said that
as long as President Roosevelt was in
the White House there would be no
Despite knowledge of the Presi-
dent's position, the House went right
ahead. When it met, its vote was on a
motion to substitute the Vinson Bill,
which would use the orthodox appro-
priation method of paying the bonus,
for the Patnan Bill, with its require-
ments for the issuance of $2,000,000,-
000 in new currency.
There was a wrangle over the par-
liamentary situation that took half an
hour. Then the roll call started. Frank
N. Belgrano, Jr., commander of the
American Legion who supported the
Vinson Bill, and James E. van Zandt,
commander of the Veterans of For-,
eign Wars who backed the Patman
Bill, both sat on the edge of their
gallery seats to listen.
But their tenseness was nothing
compared with that on the floor.
There was reason, too. At the conclu-
sion of the roll call, the vote was tied
-204 to 204. Speaker Joseph Byrns
broke the tie by voting for the Vinson

Prof. Dunham, Ann Arbor
Transportation Company
Held JointlyLiable
A judgment of $14,500 was handed
down yesterday in Circuit Court in
favor of Miss Pearl Ward, 1938 Wash-
tenaw Ave., against Prof. Arthur L.
Dunham of the history department
and the Ann Arbor Transportation
The jud:ment was handed down
jointly against Professor Dunham and
the Transportation Company, and
under Michigan law can be collected
against either individual.
Suit was started by Miss Ward as a
result of injuries she sustained in a
collision between an Ann Arbor bus
in which she was riding, and an auto-
mobile driven by Professor Dunham.
The accident occured at the inter-
section of Baldwin and Cambridge
avenues at 12:45 p.m., Nov. 12, 1934.
She asked $15,000 damages each
against Professor Dunham and the
transportation company.
The court held that the transporta-
tion company was liable and that
Professor Dunham may have been
contributory to the immediate cause
of the accident. The defense claimed
that a student, Arthur Miller, '38,1
who was riding on the outside of the
bus, obstructed the driver's view, and
that this relieved Professor Dunham
of any contributory action.
Roscoe O. Bonisteel, attorney for
the defense, said last night that the
decision against the history professor
will undoubtedly be appealed to a
higher court. This is to determine
whether or not Professor Dunham is
liable for any portion of the judg-
ment handed down.
Miss Ward sustained a broken
shoulder and head and face injuries
and was taken to .St. Joseph Hospital
following the accident. The bus was
over-loaded with a noon-day crowd,
a majority of whom were University
students. Miller was the only stu-
dent seriously injured. He recovered
after a six-week hospital confinement
but did not return to school until this

Virginia Senator-Elect Is
Advocate Of Progressive
Terms American
Business 'Blind'
Challenges Youth In Talk
At Third Union Forum
A vigorous indictment of the so-
called conservative cause and a ring-
ing challenge to the youth of Amer-
ica to set out on "new and uncharted
fields" was delivered by Sen.-Elect
Rush D. Holt (Dem.-Va.) at the third
Union Forum held yesterday after-
Describing himself as "a liberal and
progressive always, a radical some
times, but a conservative never,"
Senator Holt declared that the re-
sponsibility for driving out of politi-
cal life the old conservative bosses
lies with American youth.
"There are too many of these old
mossbacks and conservatives," Sena-
tor Holt stated. He emphasized the
necessity of liberal progressive ideas
in order for any party to continue
in power.
Discusses New Deal
"Changes in American life have
come because radicals have lived,"
he said. "We have never had a pro-
gressive change which was not started
by a progressive, a liberal, or a radi-
Discussing the New Deal, Senator
Holt stated that "Judges like Judge
Nields, who rule against the New
Deal have been mentally dead for
years, and progress is coming and
business reforms are coming whether
the conservatives or Wall Street Tor-
ies want to stop them or not."
He described American business as
a "few leaders who should be on the
political garbage wagon." Business
has been "blind" following a few
would-be leaders, Senator H o 1 t
"I indict American business for its
own blindness," he declared.
Senator Holt protested that the
danger of America is not the com-
munist or the bolshevist, but the
American Liberty League, which op-
erates secretly with wire pulling and
string pulling.
Approves 30-Hour Week
The speaker heartily endorsed or-
ganized labor as responsible for the
progress of American industry. It
has enabled the working man to pro-
tect himself through mass organiza-
The 30-hour week was also ap-
proved by Senator Holt, because "it
will spread employment all over the
He decried the utilitie and hold-
ing companies and stated that "No
American citizen is going to lose by
their regulation."
"Utility companies gave us a hypo-
dermic of propaganda, the American
public went to sleep, the utilities
went out and got drunk with power,
and now the public has awakened and
wonders what to do," Senator Holt
"Thirteen of the thirty members of
the West Virginia legislature are con-
trolled by the utilities companies and
are on their payrolls," he said in
completing the denunciation of his
"favorite subject."

The lectures are to be given during

Professor Crane's recent studies
of Benjamin Franklin have aroused
much interest in historical and bi-
bliographical circles here and abroad.
These investigations were begun in
the William L. Clements Library, and
have also been pursued in eastern
libraries. A number of essays iden-
tified by Professor Crane as Frank-
lin's in London newspapers and pe-
riodicals by the use of the elaborate
methods of the historical detective,
throw much light upon Franklin's po-
litical ideas and his activities as a

been given annually at Brown since
1915 constitute one of the most dis-
tinguished lectureships in the East,

department. The terms of the founda-

scholarship, or of other marked qual-
ifications shall be chosen, and that
