OPIA, AT THE FRONT, March 3. -
(R) -Italy's northern army, contin-
uing a series of major triumphs, to-
day smashed the last complete Ethi-
opian army on the northern front.
A force of 30,000 Ethiopians under
Ras Imeiu was routed after a three-
day battle on the western sector,
along the Takazze river.
There the Ethiopians had attempt-
ed to block an Italian movement to-
ward Lake Tana, headwaters of the
Fascists proceeded swiftly with
mopping up operations in the Tem-
bien area and in every direction the
ground was littered with enemy dead,
wounded and abandoned arms.
The victory was described as com-
plete a one as the recent one over
three Ethiopian leaders; Rases Mu-
lugheta, Kassa and Seyoum.
Italian airplanes riddled with ma-
chine-gun fire whole thousands of
Ethiopians who sought to flee from
the sector and flew up and down the
valley of Takazze to mop up any re-
Following the same smashing tac-
tics in force on the northern front
the high command threw every ounce
of Italian power into the campaign
beginning Feb. 10, army corps com-
pleted tasks assigned to them by
shattering Imeru's force after heavy
fighting and strong resistance.
The Ethiopians finally were driven
into full flight towards the fords of
the Takazze river,
Thus the entire northern front was
cleared before the rainy season, from
Amba Alaji at the eastern end of
the line to the Gheva and Takazze
Few details of the latest fighting
were available but losses were be-
lieved to be extremely heavy in the
bitter fighting, as Imeru had the
greatest success of the Ethiopian
chieftains previously opposing the
Italians in the north.

NEW YORK, March 3. - (A") -
Union leaders tonight claimed to
have crippled or curtailed elevator
and heating service in 6,000 buildings
in New York and threatened a "fight
to the finish" unless their demands
for higher pay are met.
At the end of the strike's third day
marked by violence and disorders,
union headquarters announced that
78,000 building service workers were
out, as compared with 71,00G in 5,649
buildings yesterday.
Police headquarters said their
count showed only 1,303 buildings
affected, and employers' spokesmen
place the figure as low as 500.
As negotiations for a settlement
were suspended for the night it was
announced at strike headquarters
that 10,000 building superintendents
were preparing to join the walkout.
For the first since it began Sunday,
the strike spread to hotels and clubs.
Heretofore the apartment districts
were hardest hit.

University Will Realize $45,000
More From Increased Tuitions


Purpose Of Raising Fees
Was To Abolish Other'
Student Expenses
An increase of $45,000 in the reve-
nues of the University will be real-
ized from the boosting of the general
tuition fees voted by the Board of
Regents last Friday.
According to Shirley W. Smith,
vice-president of University, the pur-
pose of raising the fees was to abolish
the diploma, matriculation and other
special fees, and not to increase the
income of the University.
Increase Was Neessary
The profit waswnecessary, he point-
ed out, because not all students aftert
entering and staying a few yearss
graduate and because there are hun-
dreds of students transferring every
year to some other school. Thus if
the matriculation and certain other
fees were spread out proportionately
and exactly over the tuition fees for
all four years, some losses would be _
sustained from transfers and students
dropping out of school.
"These costs have been spread out
over the four year period as nearly
equally as possible," Mr. Smith stated.
The hardest fee to collect, accord-
ing to the business office, was the $10
diploma fee required of all students
intending to graduate. Every year
many students in the senior classes I
were unable to graduate simply be-
cause they could not raise the extra
money. To alleviate this circum-
stance in the cases of many individ-
uals, was another reason why the
amount was spread over all four
New Students Pay Less f

ent system, which will be abolished;

year old son of Dr. Dwight C. Long of
the University history department,
suffered a slight concussion of the
brain here tonight as the result of in-
juries received in an automobile ac-

was badly injured but not fractured,
according to doctors of the Blodgett

brought in a serious condition after
their car was hit by a heavy trailer
near Ionia.
The Longs' condition was termed
"extremely serious although not im-
mediately dangerous." An X-ray is
expected to be taken of Dr. Long's
head and neck today, doctors said.
Lewis Foster, 17-year old Ann Arbor
boy, also in the Long car, was said to

the new fees they will pay only $75.
Resident students paid $60 while
under the new system such persons
will pay $55.
Non-resident students will be hit
the hardest by the new fees. Especial-
ly is this true in the Law School and
the Medical School. In the Law
School the former fees were $62 for
residents and $72 for non-residents.
The new charges will be $70 and $100,
respectively. For the Medical School
the new expenses were $100 for resi-
dents and $150 for non-residents,
compared to the new fees of $110 and
$175. (All these figures are on a
semester basis.)
The new fees in all the colleges
and schools represent an average in-
crease of $5.18 for residents and of
$14.29 for non-residents.

raised to cut down the large number

WASHINGTON, March 3. - (A) -
A belief the new Philippine common-
wealth government was "in good
hands" was expressed here today by
Joseph Ralston Hayden, until recent-
ly vice-governor of the islands.
Iayden, who has resumed his du-
ti s as professor of political economy
at the University of Michigan after
two and a half years at Manila, gave
President Roosevelt what he de-
scribed as "a generally optimistic"
report on the Philippine situation.
He was accompanied to the White
House by Secretary of War Dern.
"The Philippines are sure to have
a vigorous government as long as
Manuel Quezon is president of the
commonwealth," Hayden said.
The government generally is in the
hands of trained and experienced
Filipino officials, who are eager to
make a good record."
The former vice-governor predict-
ed, however, that the new autono-
mous regime would be "financially
,ruined" if the economic terms of the
independence law were not altered in

plete independence, scheduled for

Michigan Defeats Heavier

Marked by one of the most riotous
scenes in Olympia's history, when 300
fans battled for fully 30 minutes until
sufficient police detail arrived, Mich-
igan's Varsity hockey team concluded+
its season at Olympia tonight by
handing the Wayne University Tar-
tans a 7-1 shellacking
Hardly had the final siren blown
when Adam Widlak, husky Detroit
defenseman, took a wild swing at two
of the Wolverines, and in a moment
the vast arena was a stormy, fist-
filled prize ring with spectators join-
ing players of both teams in gen-
eral free for all that was not quell
for several minutes.1
Wcilverines Outfight Wayne
With Gib James playing a stellarf
role despite his painful back injury,1
the Wolverines outfought and out-E
gamed a heavier team that made use

Captain Larry David, playing in his
last hockey clash in a Wolverine uni-
form, played a great game for Mich-

he and David took turns bouncing
the troublesome Widlak, 200-pound
tartar defenseman all over the ice.
Michigan scored first in the open-
ing period when Captain David
snagged a loose puck at the Wayne
red, line and slid a perfect pass on
Vic Heyliger's stick. The Concord
Flash made no mistake as he plucked

page in the second stanza when they

final period, and twice Gib James
tallied on solo efforts after crossing
up the Tartar defense .
The huge free-for-all came as a
climax to a rough, hard-checking
game in which members of both teams
used high sticks and spent a good
deal of time in the cooler.

Cooperation Of StudentsE
In CampaignFor Funds
Contributions approximating $500
have been received from fraternities
and sororities in the $5,000 Burton
Memorial Tower Campaign Fund
which is being carried on within thea
student body, it was announced last
night as the first lap of the drive
neared completion.
Chairman William R. Dixon, '36. in
charge of the campus campaign,1
which is being conducted in conjunc-
tion with the University of Michigan
Club of Ann Arbor's $25,000 drive,
was enthusiastic about the coopera-
tion of student organizations to date.
"Most fraternities, sororities and
dormitories have not had sufficient
time to submit their pledges, but it is
entirely probable that these organi-
zations will subscribe the $5,000
necessary to the success of the under-
graduate campaign," Dixon stated.
Pledge cards have been mailed to
all student organizations providing
for subscriptions on a five-year basis.
The total amount of each gift is di-
vided into five equal parts to be paid
in installments over a five-year pe-
riod, it was explained.
A partial list of fraternities and sor-
orities which have already returned
their pledge cards with checks cov-
ering their first payments includes
Phi Sigma Delta, Zeta Beta Tau, and
Theta Delta Chi fraternities, and

At Princeton Pays
PRINCETON, N. J., The Princeton
University cooperative store returned
a dividend of $20,000 to its members
recently. The store has served Prince-
ton students, faculty and alumni con-
tinuously for 30 years and has not
ommitted a dividend since 1909.
The Princeton "co-op,", as it is
commonly called, is run entirely by
undergraduates and each of its 3,-
100 members pays a $5 membership
fee which is returned at the end of
the year. All profits from the sale
of books, drugs, clothing and other
college necessities are returned to the
members in the form of dividends.
Last year the total sales amounted to
over $200,000 and each member re-
ceived a check for 10 per cent of the
amount he had spent in the store.

Revision Of Corporate
Taxation Methods
Major Fight Looms
Over Bill In House
Even Democrats Are Cool
As Republicans Criticize
NEW YORK, March 3-(P)-A com-
plete change in the method of hand-
ling corporation finances, reaching
into the next generation, was Wall
Street's interpretation today of
Roosevelt's taxation proposals.
With only a brief forewarning, se-
curities markets were stunned into
inactivity when the President asked
Congress for around $1,600,000,000 to
be raised by a levy on undistributed
corporation profits.
The same first reaction was gen-
eral in banking houses, corporations
and among economic and fiscal au-
From the standpoint of the securi-
ties traders, the tax was greeted as a
windfall, since corporations would be
forced either to increase payments of
stockholders or pay the heavy tax.
Stocks promptly gained one to five
dollars a share on the New York stock
There remained however th dis-
quieting prediction in several quar-
ters that if huge corporations deplete
reserves by dividend payments they
would be in a weakened condition in
an emergency requiring cash.
Revision Suggested
WASHINGTON, March 3. - () -
An unparalleled revision of corporate
taxation -handing industry an an-
nual bill of $620,000,000 for farm re-
lief and the bonus -was suggested
to a startled and obviously uneasy
Congress today by President 'Roose-
Republican criticism, in which
some Democrats joined, gave prospect
of a major battle. Machinery was
started immediately, however, to
press the plan.
In a special message, the President
asked that present corporation in-
2ome and other levies be repealed, at
in annual loss to the Government of
$1,000,000,000, and be replaced with a
levy on undistributed profits, which,
with a resulting gain in individual in-
come taxes, he estimated would pro-
duce $1,620,000,000 annually.
His point' was that under the pres-
ent law, stockholders receiving divi-
dends pay only a surtax upon them,
while his proposal would make divi-
dends subject to both normal tax and
surtax - with this supplemented by
a stiff tax on corporation profits not
turned into dividends.
In addition, the President proposed
that a sizeable portion of processing
taxes refunded as a result of the Su-
preme Court's AAA and rice millers
decisions, be replaced by special taxes
on the processing of farm commodi-
Taxable Commodities Increased
These levies would be limited to the
collection of some $500,000,000 in two
or three years. The number of com-
modities to be taxed would be in-
creased, with the result, he said, that
a "relatively light burden would be
imposed on the producers, consumers

or processors."
V hile there had been talk of a
tax on undistributed corporation pro-
fits, Congress patently had not ex-
pected such an extensive application
of this method of raising funds. Even
more Democrats received the propos-
als cooly. Many Republicans were
outspoken in their denunciation.
In his message, Mr. Roosevelt as-
serted that the practice of some
corporations of piling up reserves in-
stead of declaring dividends 'worked
an injustice to the small stockholder
and constituted a method of evading
the surtax that has reached "dis-
turbing proportions."
, The President said that any cor-
poration had a right to set aside suf-
ficient reserves before arriving at its
earnings figure. He suggested that
such reserves might include depreci-
ation funds and working capital,
