To Extensive Program
Of Demonstrations
By ROBERT CUMMINS
Five lectures by distinguished mem-
bers of the Medical School faculty
yesterday climaxed Ann Arbor Day
for the 1,000 campus visitors from the
American College of Physicians,
which is holding its 20th annual con-
vention in Detroit.
An intensive program of clinical
lectures and demonstrations,ideal-
ing with almost every phase of med-
ical science, occupied members of the
College in the morning. Fifty-seven
lectures and demonstrations, divided
into 20 groups, were offered.
Sessions of the College will con-
tinue in Detroit today, with adjourn-
ment Friday. The convention opened
Monday, with Dr. James D. Bruce of
the Medical School head of the com-
mittee on arrangements, presiding
and giving the address of welcome.
Novy Welcomes Visitors
Dr. Frederick G. Novy, dean-emeri-
tus o the Medical School,twelcomed
the, visitors, who crowded the Union
ballroom for yesterday's afternoon
session, and Dr. James Alex Miller,
president of the College, replied by
paying tribute to Dr. Novy as a man
"who will always remain one of the
great deans of medicine as represent-
ed in the minds and hearts of the
profession."
The results of an experiment con-
ducted at the University Hospital
provided the basis of the first talk
of the afternoon on "The Medical and
Economic Advantages of an X-Ray
Chest Survey of All Hospital Admis-
sions," given by Dr. Fred J. Hodges,
pressor of roentgenology.
Names Average Cast
For 14 days, Dr. Hodges said, X-
ray pictures of the chest of every
entering patient were taken, this pro-
cedure being kept entirely separate
from the hospital's ordinary routines
so that any information is might dis-
close would not prevent a clear-cut
and objective evaluation of the ex-
periment.
Of the 1,000 X-ray pictures taken
during this period, 90 disclosed sig-
nificant disorders. Forty of these
cases had not been cleared through
the regular X-ray clinic, although
only 14 could be (termed "cbean
misses," Dr. Hodges explained. "These
misses hit the whole length and
breadth of the hospital," he declared.

Resionini, For
Harvard Post
Professor Had Conference
With President Conant;
Local Officials Silent
Prof. Howard Mumford Jones of
the English department, now on a
semester's sabbatical leave, may re-
sign from the University and join
the Harvard English faculty, author-
itative sources told The Daily last
night.
The rumor that Professor Jones had
gone to Harvard had been circulat-
ing about the campus since Monday.
It was 'denied yesterday by all Uni-
versity officials. Asked last semester,
Professor Jones denied that he had
any intentions of resigning..
. Although nothing could be learned
definitely about whether or not Pro-
fessor Jones will go to Harvard, it was
established last night that he con-
ferred in New York with President
James B. Conant of Harvard Uni-
versity before sailing for Bermuda. He
is now enroute back to the United
States from Bermuda and will land
in New York Friday night. Saturday
he is expected to again confer with
Harvard authorities, the sources said.
The Daily attempted to reach Pro-
fessor Jones last night by cable, but
learned that he had sailed earlier
yesterday.

TKTcI r Ah 4 (/P) -W- The

aftermath to the Michigan-Wayne
hockey game in Olympia Tuesday
night was ordered yesterday by David
L. Holmes, athletic director of Wayne
University, after Detroit papers pub-
lished considerable accounts of the
fracas.
"Wayne does not tolerate such tac-
tics," said Holmes in a statement to
the press.
Coach Eddie Lowrey when contact-
ed late last night by The Daily, was,
of the opinion that the best thing,
to do would be to forget the whole
affair.,
The free-for-all started just after
the final siren had found the Wol-
verines out in front, 7-1. Vic Hey-
liger, Michigan center, had ?stick,
handled through the defense, only to,
over-skate the Wayne ,goal. Vic
banged his stick on the back of the
cage in disgust, and started toward
the boards when big Adam Widlak,
Wayne defenseman, and, incidentally,
a heavyweight boxer, skated after
Heyliger and hit him from behind,
just under the ear. Heyliger turned
and crossed a right that floored the
burly Tartar, but Wayne's goalie,
Durocher leaped on the Wolverine
center and then members of both
squads joined in a piling, fist-swing-
ing melee. Supporters of the rival
teams flocked out on the ice and spec-
tators climbed down from their seats
to leap over the boards and come
sliding out into the combat.
t Holmes' attitude just after the game
was that "the incident is highly re-
grettable" and seemed to blame Wid-
lak for provoking the whole disturb-
ance. Tompkins, Wayne coach, also
expressed his regret, particularly as
the rumor spread that Michigan-
Wayne athletic relations might be
severed as a result.
Coach Lowrey, although stressing
the fact that he had no authority on
a question of athletic policy, couldI
see no reason for any break in rela-
tions because of the fight.
Alpha Nu Chooses
Five New Otficers

to call a nationwide walkout of build-
ing service workers and "to fight it
out on the streets," refused to give
ground tonight.
Union Leader James J. Bambrick's
threat of street fighting promptly
aroused thesinterest of District At-
torney William C. Dodge, who called
for an explanation of what Bambrick
meant.
Other developments:
In addition to raising the threat
of a countrywide strike of elevator
operators, porters, heating engineers
and other service unions, strike lead-
ers claimed that they could precipi-
tate a general walkout of all organized
labor in the city.
Approximately 1,200 strike sympa-
thizers, by police estimate, got out of
control when officers tried to break
up a demonstration in front of union
headquarters late today. They were
too busy eluding police, however, to
cause any serious damage.
Sluggings and vandalism continued
in other sporadic outbreaks, follow-
ing a night of riotous demonstrations
in the Park Ave. sector. Stench
bombs were brought into play.
Edward F. McGrady,. assistant sec-
retary of labor and veteran labor
conciliator, stood ready to act as me-
diator -as Mayor F. H. LaGuardia
strove for a settlement.
Real estate operators rejected an
offer of state mediation, but both
sides expressed willingness to accept
McGrady's services.
An impromptu tenants defense
league demanded a grand jury in-
vestigation of violent disorders. Other
tenants joined the stikers' picket
lines.

By FREDnWARNER NEAL
Sweeping innovations in the na-p
ion's program advocated Mondayd
)y President Roosevelt were hailed
esterday as "very constructive and s
ogical" by Prof. Robert S. Ford, tax-
tion expert of the economics depart- t
nent. t
What the President really proposed, t
rofessor Ford explained, was a sub- b
titution of a tax on undistributed i
>rofits of corporations and a repeal e
>f three existing taxes - the capital r
tock tax, estimated to raise $163,- t
)00,000 in the fiscal year 1937; the t
orporation excess profis tax, esti- e
nated to bring $5,000,000 in 1937; and
he graduated corporation income tax, P
stimated to yield $826,000,000 in t
937. t

3ratt, '38, of Buffalo, was yesterday
laced on probation for the remaind-
*r of the academic year by action of
he subcommittee on discipline of
he University Committee on Student
Conduct.
The action of the discipline com-
nittee supported a similar decision by
he judiciary committee of the Men's
Council which followed proceedings
aunched shortly before the Hop. l
Bratt was convicted of purchasing
and re-selling a Hop ticket for $7, a
price $1.50 higher than its face value,
in a case which was seen by observers
as the first step in a campaign to wipe
out scalping in the sale of dance
tickets on the campus.t
William R. Dixon, '36, president of1
the Men's Council, announced last
night that every effort is being made
to apprehend students guilty of
scalping in the sale of tickets to class
dances. He stated that undergradu-
ates believed to be guilty of scalping
or having knowledge of such offenses
will be called before the Council ju-
diciary committee.
In 1934 the Student Council set a
pattern for action in the scalping
cases which offers three alternatives
as punishments, including suspension
for the semester with re-admission
by special permission only, temporary1
suspension, and probation.

Will Bring Alleged Killer
Back For Hearing
Extradition papers for William
"Shorty" Hayden, alleged killer of
Officer Clifford Stang in a daylight
holdup here last March 21, were re-
ceived yesterday by Albert J. Rapp,
city prosecutor, from the office of
Gov. Frank D. Fitzgerald in Lansing,
where they were obtained by Detec-
tive Eugene Gehringer.
Hayden is being held by Los Angeles

police on a murder warrant issued
through the local police department.
Chief of Police Lewis Fohey, Sergt.
Sherman Mortenson, and Rapp plan
to leave for Sacramento, Calif., with
the papers by train at 1:21 p.m. today,
to present them to Gov. Frank Mer-
riam of California. Rapp is making
the trip to represent the city as at-
torney because Hayden has an-
nouncedi he will fight extradition
from the West Coast.
Meanwhile Parole Commissioner
Joseph C. Armstrong in Lansing was
arranging to send Los Angeles police
a detainer for Hayden, who violated
his parole from a seven and a half
to fifteen year jail sentence by the
holdup and slaying here,: after serv-
ing less than five years of the sen-
tence.

or Ford pointed out, is the request
or repeal of the exemption from the
orma" income tax that exists on
ividends paid to individual stock-
iolders.
What the undistributed corporation
rofits tax, along with the repeal of
,he exemption on individual dvi-
[ends, would do, according to Profes-
or Ford, is this:
The President claims it will force
he declaration of dividends in order
o escape taxation on those undis-
ributed. In that event, revenue will
e gleaned from the income tax on
ndividual earnings, dividends includ-
d. But if the corporation should
not pay its stockholders, the undis-
ributed profits will be taxed. Thus
he government will catch the money
ither way.
As the chief criticism to this tax,
Professor Ford points to the danger
hat there may be no exemption from
he tax on undistributed profits for
n emergency fund or necessary rein-
iestment.
The other two taxes proposed in
MIonday's message, mentioned by the
?resident in only broad and indefinite
erms, are a "windfall tax" and a
'broad and thin" processing tax.
These taxes, as well as the one on
.ndistributed profits, Professor Ford
xplained, mentioning the "necessity
or additional taxation," are designed,
is the President said, to raise per-
nanently an annual amount of $620,-
00,000, $500,000,000 of which repre-
ents "substitute taxes in place of
he old processing taxes" knocked out

Kidnaping Case
Railroad Employe Claims
Bruno's Partner Was
Near Scene Of Crime
TRENTON, N. J., March 4. - (IP) -
The name of the late Isidor Fisch,
business partner of Bruno Richard
Hauptmann, was unexpectedly in-
jected today into Gov. Harold G.
Hoffman's investigation of the Lind-
bergh kidnap-murder.
The Governor's office, it was learned
from a reliable source, has an af-
fidavit from a railroad crossing
watchman who said he saw a man,
who resembled pictures of Fisch, rid-
ing in an automobile a few miles from
the Lindbergh estate a number of
times before the kidnaping four years
ago.
The watchman, Alfred Hammond,
lives at Woodbourne, Pa. In 1932, the
source of the information said, he was
working at a crossing on the Reading
Railroad between Blawenburg and
Skillman, about five miles from the
Hopewell home of the Lindberghs.
Eight or nine times before the kid-
naping, Hammond is reported to have
said in his affidavit, a grayish green
sedan stopped at the crossing when
the gates were lowered. In the back
seat sat a man, who, he said, looked
like Fisch. There were two persons
in the front seat, one of them de-
scribed as a big man, but neither of
whom he could identify.
Hammond told his story to the
State Police after the kidnaping. He
said the car carried New York license
tags and gave the police the number
as closely as he could remember it.
Col. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, head
of the State Police, said Hammond'
story had been investigated thor
oughly. He said Hammond had been
shown some pictures, including on
of Hauptmann, after the latter's ar
rest in the Bronx, and did not identi

fy anyone.

New Revenue
Plan Debated
By Congress
Treasury Experts Propose
Heavy Tax On Corporate
Incomes
'Sound Principle'
Is SeenBy Borah
Ways And Means Group
Reach 'Understanding
In Closed Sessions
WASHINGTON, March 4. - () -
Tax plans and the NewDeal's third
anniversary today touched off salvos
of capitol hill debate.
Part of the oratory which roared
through both houses of Congress
resulted in disclosure of more de-
tailed plans to raise $620,000,000
more in taxes suggested yesterday by
President Roosevelt.
Treasury experts proposed a 333
per cent levy on undistributed cor-
porate income,but hints were drop-
ped from a Ways and Means sub-
committee that this might be modi-
fied.
In general, Republicans con-
demned as a "direct penalty on
thrift" and "qualified to wreck the
industrial machine" the corporation
tax revision suggested by Mr. Roose-
velt to pay for farm relief and the
bonus.
Borah Favors Plan
But Sen. William E. Borah, (Rep.,
Ida.), candidate for the Republican
presidential nomination, said there
was a "sound principle" in the Pres-
ident's tax proposal but that "like all
taxes, it may be carried to the point
where it will be destructive."
A seven-member House Ways and
Means sub-committee had two meet-
ings on the tax plan behind closed
doors. Chairman Samuel B. Hill said
that it had reached a "general un-
derstanding" that banks and fidu-
ciary corporations should be exempt
from any drastic taxes on surpluses.
Treasury experts said the high tar
on surpluses - as distinct from re-
serves - coupled with income taxes
on surpluses converted into dividends,
would bring in roughly $1,600,000,000.
To Replace Many Levies
That would be intended to replace
nearly a billion dollars in present
corporate and allied taxes which the
President proposed to repeal and said'
$620,000,000 to finance the new farm
program and the immediate payment
of the bonus.
Above the crossfire of Capitol com-
ment arose a concerted Republican
refrain that such taxes would "soak
the thrifty" corporations and destroy
resources on which industry has
drawn to carry it through depression.
Democrats replied with President
Roosevelt's phrase, that it would in-
crease the velocity of money and help
* redistribute wealth.
*Coincidentally, Secretary of the
Treasury Henry Morgenthau, Jr., an-
nounced that preliminary reports
showed that the Treasury's $1,250,-
000,000 cash March financing had
been oversubscribed five to seven
times. About $800,000,000 of the
I newly borrowed funds will replenish
the Governments supply of cash for
forthcoming farm relief and bonus
payments.

Prof. Gaiss Approves Of Sending
Faculty Members To Germanyi

The sending of representatives of
the University to the 550th anniver-
sary of the founding of the Univer-
sity of Heidelberg is not tacit approval
or sanction of Naziism, Prof. Aloysius
G. Gaiss of the German department
declared yesterday.
Professor Gaiss, who will repre-
sent Michigan at the celebration,
stated that "the sending of educators
and teachers from the great colleges
and universities will probably better
the relations between Germany and
the United States as well as in the
rest of the woold.
"Anyway those who go to Germany
will come back better Americans than
they were when they left," Professor
Gaiss observed.
Since America is represented in the
Olympics, Professor Gaiss said, that
there would h little controversy over

government," Professor Gaiss empha-
sized.
Politics and education should never
be mixed, Professor Gaiss said, and
the "storm of protest" raised in vari-
ous parts of the country and news-
papers including the New York Post
and college publications at Vassar,
Cor nell and other schools seems to
him to be doing just that.
Because the professors at Heidel-
berg cannot teach or say exactly what
they please, due to Hitler's decrees,
is no reason why we should not send
delegates, Professor Gaiss said. "Often
in this country, during a war for
example, we do not teach exactly
what we please. Why should we con-
demn those professors and the Uni-
versity for not saying what they want
to and perhaps lose their jobs and
he forced into starvutinon?" Profesor
