Bonus Bill
Is Sent To
House Passes Measure By
Overwhelming Majority
Of 287 Votes
Will Be Payable In
$50 Bonds In June
Two Billion In Payments
Will Not Weaken Dollar,
Says Rep._Fish
WASHINGTON, Jan. 22.- (P) -
An over-powering House majority to-
day sped a bond payment bonus bill
to the White House, handing to Pres-
ident Roosevelt the politically deli-
cate problem of deciding within 10
days whether to let the legislation be-
come law or risk the overriding of a
For 3,500,000 World War veterans,
enactment will mean cash for their
adjusted service' certificates nine
years ahead of the present maturity
For the government, it will pose the
question of raising at least $1,000,000,-
000 at once and $2,491,000,000 even-
Again by a margin greatly in ex-
cess of the two-thirds needed to over-
ride a veto, the House went on record
for the bonus. By a 346 to 59 vote
it agreed to the Senate's proposal
for payment in $50 bonds, cashable
on demand after June 15.
Almost before the steady chorus
of "ayes" died down in the House,
Speaker Joseph W. Byrns wrote his
signature on the bill. Vice President
Garner signed it also within little
more than an hour, and with the ink
scarcely dry it was rushed to the
White House.
Handed To President
Instead of going by messenger, the
usual practice, the bill was taken to
the executive offices by Rep. Claude
V. Parsons, (Dem., Ill.), chairman of
the House Committee on enrolled
bills. Even so, he had to hand it
not to the President, but to a clerk.
The chief Executive offered not a
single hint as to whether he would
sign the bill, veto it, or let the measure
become law by doing neither within
the limit of 10 legislative days set
by the Constitution.
No sooner had the bill reached the
White House than Henry H. Curran,
director of the National Economy
League, addressed this telegram to
the President:
"Give them the same good veto
message you gave them a year ago.
That was a bad bonus bill and a good
message. This bonus bill is just as
bad, so make the message just as
Bonus Leaders Confident
Congressional bonus leaders con-
tended, however, that it made no dif-
ference what the President did. They
argued that they could control far
more votes than are needed to killa
In addition to providing for pay-
ment in baby bonds, the bonus bill
would offer veterans 3 per cent in-
terest yearly from June 15, 1936, to
June 15, 1945, if they retain the bonds
as an investment. It would cancel all
unpaid interest on loans on their cer-
tificates that has accrued since Oct.
1, 1931.
Chairman John E. Rankin, (Dem.,
Miss.), of the House Veterans Co-

mittee, spoke the sentiment of many
of his colleagues when he took the
floor to describe today's vote as "posi-
tively the last chapter in the fight for
payment of the bonus."
Usually a staunch administration
man, Chairman Robert C. Doughton,
(Dem., N.C.), of the Ways and Means
Committee, which handled the legis-
lation, asked "for an overwhelming
vote --if not a unanimous vote" for
his resolution providing for accept-
ance of the Senate's bond plan. The
House bill previously passed called
only for immediate cash payment, but
specified no method.
Speaker Byrns was among those
voting for the resolution.
One prominent Republican, Rep.
Hamilton Fish (Rep., N.Y.), conceded
that the legislation would not "impair
the soundness of the dollar."

King's Clergymen Describes
Ceremony Of George's Funeral'

Dr. Fellowes, Present At
Rites Of Queen Victoria,
Tells About Services
One of the most "tremendously im-
pressive" and colorful funeral services
England has ever seen will be held
Tuesday for King George V, Canon
Edmund H. Fellowes. a member of the
clergy of St. George's chapel in Wind-
sor, England, stated in an interview
Dr. Fellowes, who is in Ann Arbor
while on a lecture tour of the United
States, has been a member of the
clergy of the chapel for more than
25 years, and had been transferred
to the chapel of the Windsor Castle
just a few months before the death
of Queen Victoria. He is a recog-
nized authority in the composition
and performance of music, and for a
time was master of the choir of the
St. George's chapel.
Because he took an active part in
the funeral of Queen Victoria, Dr. Fel-
lowes vividly described the probable
procedure of the King's funeral to be
held Tuesday.
"After resting in Westminster Hall
for a few days, the coffin of King
George, made five years ago of the
hardy oaks from the Sandringham
forest, will be carried to Paddington,
the London depot of the Great West-
ern Railway. Then it will go to Wind-
sor," he said.
In Windsor, which is about 20 miles
from London, the coffin will be placed
on a gun carriage and drawn through
the streets of the city by British
sailors. Sailors pull the carriage, he
explained, because at the funeral of
Queen Victoria it was an extremely
cold day and the horses drawing the
gun carriage refused to pull the cof-
fin. A group of sailors thereupon
marched forward from the ranks and
pulled the carriage to the castle. "Very
probably the sailors will assert their
right again," he observed.
The carriage with the coffin of King
George will then move through the
streets of Windsor and through Hyde
Park up to Windsor castle, Dr. Fel-
lowes continued.
Streets will be lined with tremen-

Superiority Of
Younger Men
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Jan. 22-(!P7)
The young instructor, fresh and vig-
orous in his pursuits, holds an ad-
vantage over the more experienced
professors in institutions of higher
learning, according to Dean Fernan-
dus Payne, of the University of In-
He cites experiments to show that
any differences in efficiency between
the young and old instructor are in
favor of the former.
In one critical analysis, the in-
structors scored 54.74; assistant pro-
fessors, 54.26; associate professors,
54.15, and professors, 50.13.
Thd same study also compared
teachers who had taught from one to
11 years with those who had taught
more than 11 years. The efficiency
score for the first group was 55.68,
and for the second 48.82.
"From whatever angle the ap-
proach was made, the difference in
favor of the young instructor per-

all their showy uniforms and gold
braid will escort the casket to its final
resting place. Kings from foreign
states, all the English nobility, and
ambassadors from the great nations
of the world will follow the carriage
through the streets, and make the pa-
rade more than a mile long, he said.
Upon arrival at the castle, the oak
coffin will be carried up the broad
steps leading to the chapel and then
placed directly in front of the altar.
The various orders of nobles, such
as the Knights of the Gartar, will

Albert Sarraut May Be
Called In By President
To Take Position
PARIS, Jan. 22. - (P) - Pierre La-
val's "Save the franc" cabinet
reached a long-expected collapse to-
day, precipitating a serious govern-
mental crisis.
President Albert LeBrun began at
once to seek a new premier, but par-
liamentary sources said the search
would be long and tedious. The dan-
ger of grave "financial and foreign
consequences" was predicted by na-
tionalist minister of the state, Louis;
Marin, who refused to sign the cab-;
inet collective resignation.
M. Laval and two other prospec-
tive premiers refused the job late
today and it was announced officially
that. M. LeBrun would wait until
morning to continue his effort to find
a suitable man. The radical social-
ist Albert Sarraut, who was premier
for a month in 1933, was expected to
be the next to be consulted.
Marcel Regnier, erstwhile minister1
of finance, might be called upon at
length to become premier and stave
off devaluation until a new chamber'
of deputies is chosen in the spring.'
M. Laval, who has held the reins of'
French government for the compara-
tively lengthy period of seven and'
one-half months, quit with the rest'
of his ministry when Edouard Her-
riot and the three other radical so-
cialist ministers abandoned the gov-
ernment because of their part in the
condemnation of the premier 's poli-
cies, domestic and foreign.
M. Laval put the plan for the cab-t
inet's collapse squarely on the radical
socialists. He took the ministers
directly from a cabinet meeting in
the Quai D'Orsay to the Elysee tower.
There, under gala trappings strung
for a diplomatic ball which was can-j
celled with the death of King George
V of England, the independent pre-t
mier let his cabinet fall apart int
front of the president.
Burke Shartel
Gives Talk On
Supreme Court
Says (:ongress Has Right
To Create Laws Which
Seem Necessary
That a "case which will prove a
Constitutional landmark" has been
settled in a decision which contra-
dicts itself was the conclusion of Prof
Burke Shartel of the Law School in
a talk last night before the Citizens'
Council in the City Hall.
In reaching this opinion on the
Supreme Court's invalidation of the
AAA, Professor Shartel first explained
that the Constitution gives Congress
authority for making any laws needed
to carry out powers delegated it.
Broaduse ofuthis authority has long
been accepted by the Court, he point-
ed out.

French Promise Support
Of Britain 'Declared
Fully, In Advance'
GENEVA, Jan. 22. -(AP) - Official
announcement that Great Britain,
France, Turkey, Greece and Yugosla-
via will fight in common to resist any
attack by Italy gave the Ethiopian
conflict an historic turn tonight.
These five powers, dominating the
Mediterranean Sea, will pool their
military, naval and air forces if Pre-
mier Benito Mussolini strikes a blow
at the British Fleet.
The Mutual Assistance Pact as-
sumed even greater proportions with
subsequent word that the remaining
members of the Little Entante, Ru-
mania and Czechoslovakia, approve
Yugoslavia's participation and will
stand behind her.
Through a memorandum from
Great Britain, the League of Nations
disclosed details of the mutual as-
sistance pact at a strategic moment.
The document was published just
after the League's Sanctions Commit-
tee of eighteen had decided to push
on with the question of oil sanctions
against Italy, at least to the extent
of asking governmental experts to
determine whether such an embargo
can be practically effective.
Creation of an experts committee
was regarded in some league circles
as increasing the likelihood that oil
sanctions would be applied.
Italy, having defied the League by
virtually refusing to countenance al-
location of funds for use of the Sanc-
tions Committee, created another]
sensation by warning she would pro-
test the Mediterranean Mutual As-,
sistance Pact.
Special interest was attached
meantime, to France's reply to Great;
Britain on the Mutual Assistance1
Categorically, the French declared
their "support of Great Britain is as-
sured fully and in advance" in the
event of an attack on Britain by Italy
by reason of British collaboration in
international actions undertaken by
the League.

Falling Barometer Shows
Icy Cold Has Yet To Hit
Low Mark For Year
The mercury ended its all day
plunge at 5 degrees below zero last
night, gripping Ann Arbor in the
coldest weather of the winter.
A falling barometer, reported . at
the weather bureau of the University
Observatory late last night indicated
that the temperature had not yet
reached the nadir and could be ex-
pected to fall even lower today. The
barometer reading last night was
given at 28.72. The Detroit weather
bureau predicted that the cold spell
would last three days.
The reading of 5 below,, officially
reported at 10:30 p.m. yesterday,
came as the bottom of the long,
swift drop which started in the
morning. At 7 a.m. yesterday, the
weather bureau gave the official
temperature at 13.23 above zero. By
noon it had dropped to 9 above. At
7 p.m. the official reading was 3.2 de-
grees below zero, and at 10:30 p.m., 5
55 Below In Canada
Heralded by a howling 35-mile-an-
hour gale, wind and blizzard, the
cold spell held the entire Midwest
in its icy grasp. In some spots the
bitter temperatures, which came
blustering out of the Canadian North-
west, sank to 55 degrees below zero,
according to the Associated Press.
The wind subsided last night, be-
ing reported by the weather bureau
here at 7 p.m. at 16 miles an hour.
It drifted the 'snow, which fell spas-
modically all day, into huge drifts,
making county highways, in some
places, impassWle. The Washte-
naw County road commission worked
late into the night attempting to
clear strategic points, and its trucks,
as well as those of the city highway
department, were hauling snow off
travelled streets.
No Estimate Made Of Snow
Because of drifts caused by the
high wind, the weather bureau re-
ported, an actual estimate of snow-
fall could not be made. The "melted
snowfall" was reported at .03, the ac-
tual snowfall probably being more
than an inch. The total snowfall for
the recent series of blizzards is be-
lieved to be nearly two feet.
No accidents or injuries caused by
the cold and snow were reported here,
although several cases of severe freez-
ing and exposure, some resulting in
fatalities, occurred throughout the
cold weather area.
The Upper Peninsula was hit even
harder than this section. Most
places reported temperatures around
15 to 20 degrees below zero, accord-
ing to the Associited Press, and traf-
fic throughout the state was tied up.
Shipping on the Great Lakes was
practically ended, dispatches said, as
the northwest wind shifted gigantic
ice floes across navigation routes.
Many ports were blockaded, accord-
ing to Coast Guards, and ice was re-
ported to be forming within har-

No Danger Of Mr

Turmoil in Europe, but no immi-

was the picture of the European sit-
uation presented last night by Dor-
othy Thompson, noted woman jour-'

rival for her scheduled Oratorical As-
sociation lecture today.
A major war, she maintained, is out
of the question at the present mo-
ment, first because a warring nation
in a "world" war must be assured of
allies, a difficult proposition under
today's diplomatic situation, and see-,
ondly because the only nations in-
terested in war at present are those
who have something to gain, and
those nations reduce themselves to
two, Germany and Italy, of which
