Adjuinistration Pts As(L
Repubhlican Amendment
To Tax Bill, 78 To33
Defeated Proposal
Would Cut Revenue
WASHINGTON, March 7.-- W) -
An attempt at complete repeal of
the widely criticized tax on undis-
tributed profits went down to defeit
in the House today.
Administration forces easily shunt-
ed aside, 78 to 33, a Republican
amendment to the tax revision bill
which would have:
(1.) Eliminated provisions for a
12'/. to 16 per cent income tax on
corporations with incomes of $25,000
or less and for a 16 per cent income
tax on most larger firms, plus a 4
per cent surtax on undistributed pro-
fits.
(2.) Substituted a normal corpor-
ate income tax of 121/2 per cent on
the first $5,000, 14 per cent on the
next $20,000 and 16 per cent on all
above $25,000.
The vote today was the first big
test of the bill. Others were to come.
Critics sought to modify the bill's
provisions for a capital gains tax,
and to eliminate a proposed surtax on
family-owned or closely-held corpor-
ations.
Republicans argued that outright
repeal of the undistributed profits tax
would remove an "iniquitous" levy
from the statute books, tax all com-
panies on the basis of income and
without reference to dividend policy,
and provide a "sound and equitable"
corporate revenue system.
They estimated the substitute pro-
posal would result in a reduction of
$80,000,000 in government revenue.
Representative Vinson (Dem., Ky.)
argued back that the loss would be
$200,000,000 to $250,0000,000.
Asserting that Vinson could make
"black look white," Representative
Knutson (Rep., Minn.) said the un-
distributed profits tax was doing
more than any other law to "keep
15,000,000 people pounding the pave-
ment looking for joos."

Dictator Negotiations Andi
Rearmaments Upheld
LONDON, March 7.-WP)-Prime
Minister Neville Chamberlain tonight
won a decisive vote of confidence in
the House of Commons for his "al-
most terrifying" armament building
program to back pending talks with
dictators.
By a vote of 347 to 133 Commons
approved Chamberlain's exposition of
the rearmament program and his
policy of negotiating directly with
Premier Mussolini and Reichsfuehrer
Hitler.
The Prime Minister broke his usual
icy reserve to deny opposition charges
he wanted "peace at any price" or
was biased toward fascism.
Parliament gave him one of the
biggest ovations of his career at the
end of his 49-minute speech making
clear he was risking his political fu-
ture on conferences with the dictators

in an attempt to halt Europe's drift
toward "the cataract" of war.
A surprising number of other mem-
bers expressed the fear war was in-
evitable unless the vital British talks
with Italy and Germany succeed.
A gloomy picture of Britain's air-
force in relation to Germany's was
drawn by Winston Churchill, War-
time Cabinet member, who said the
Reich was spending more than double
Britain's huge sums.

Congressional leaders gave a cool re-

debt settlement proposal to Congressj

Under the proposal, Hungary
would pay all of its principal debt.
but no interest. It was learned the
State Department had advised Mr.!
Roosevelt to accept the offer for two1
reasons. One is that it comes from a
;ountry which has been a good payer
in the past. The other is that it
night set a precedent for similar
settlements by large debtor nations
which are paying nothing on their
obilgations.
However, Chairman H a r r i s o n
Dean.-Miss.), of the Senate Finance
Committee, told reporters he be-,
lieved the time was inopportune to
attempt any negotiations for revision
of international debts.
If the President sends the Hun-
garian proposal to Congress, as per-
sons close to the State Department
predicted he would, it would be
turned over to the Senate 'Finance
Committee and the House Ways and
Means Committee for initial consid-
eration.

Cappon Will Be Princeton
IHead Back Geld Coach
And Basketball 1[centor
Wiei1aii Is Pleased
With Appointment
Franklin C. Cappon will become
Princeton University's head backfield
coach and basketball coach, it was
learned by the Daily last night in a
telephone conversation with Elton E.
(Tad) Wieman, newly-appointed
coach at Princeton.
The appointment was not unex-
pected. Wieman, who had Cappon
as assistant during his one-year term
as football coach here in 1928, freely
praised Cappon in Eastern circles
when the entire Michigan staff was
under fire last football season.
Wieman Comments
Speaking fro a his Pennsylvania
home, Wieman refused to tell the
Daily the terms of Cappon's contract,
but in regard to its duration he had
this to say:
"We hope it's forever."
Cappon said last night: "I deem it a
high honor to be invited to join the
Princeton coaching staff, and I en-
thusiastically welcome the opportu-
nity of again being associated with
Tad Wieman, whose exceptional abil-
ity and sterling character I have al-
ways held in high regard."
Basketball coach and an assistant'
football coach here, Cappon has been
associated intermittently with Mich-
igan athletics since 1919, when he en-
rolled as a student here.
Won Four Letters
As an undergraduate he won four
varsity letters, three in football,' as
end, tackle and fullback, and one in
basketball. Upon graduation in 1923,
he became head football and basket-
ball coach at Luther College, Decorah,
Ia. Two years later he returned to
Michigan as an assistant coach, but
a year later, in 1926, he went to the
University of Kansas as head foot-
ball coach.
He returned to Michigan in 1928
as assistant coach in football and
basketball. In 1929 he was made
assistant to the director of athletics
and in 1931 head basketball coach.
Cappon was replaced as head line
coach last season by Heartley C.
(Hunk) Anderson.
He will leave for Princeton in time'j

New Scoring Record
Hung Up By Jake
By IRVIN 1iSAGOR
Michigan beat Northwestern last
night, 30-22.
But more important than victory
was the consummation of Michigan's
famed Townsend Plan--a plan which
was determinedly attacked for three
years, but which, unlike its now de-
funct economic predecessor, emerged
in glorious triumph.
The huge Field House crowd gath-
ered last night to watch Capt. John
(Jake) Townsend conclude his col-
legiate basketball career. It thun-
dered approval when he broke a ten-
year old Michigan scoring record.
And when he made a dramatic exit
[ER from the game a minute before the
finish, it hailed him with an ovation
that faii'ly rocked the building.
an Cappon's Last 'M' Team
Before the game it was announced
ire that Capt. Jake needed only eight
points to break Bennie Oosterbaan's
1 ten-year old scoring record of 129
day points for a single season, set in 1928.
Thirteen minutes later Jake had
netted nine points to displace Oos-
edish terbaan's old mark, and before he
retired late in the second period four
more tallies had been added for an
