This change in the House mea-

hints of another presidential veto if

The record vote on passage of the

Senators Walsh, of Massachu-

pension rates. The schedule would

Repertory Players Open Season
Tonight With Comedy Holiday'

With more than 150 persons en-
rolled in the Play Production divi-
sion of the speech department, the
Michigan Repertory Players should
this year meet with greater success
in their SummernSessionseason
than ever before, in the opinion of
Prof. Chester M. Wallace, guest di-
rector, and head of the drama de-
partment of the Carnegie Institute
of Technology.
Seven plays, one new production
each week, will be mounted by stu-
dents in Play Production. Philip
Barry's brilliant comedy, "Holiday,"
the opening vehicle for the student
players, will be presented at 8:15
o'clock tonight in the Lydia Men-
delssohn theatre to inaugurate the

summer season.
Professor Wallace,

many of the plays given by Play
Production last summer, will be
here for only three weeks. He has
been on the faculty at Carnegie
Tech for 11 years. In commenting
yesterday on the large enrollment
in the department, Professor Wal-
lace expressed satisfaction withthe
spreading interest in the courses
offered by the department as evi-
denced by the phenomenal increase
in the number of students enrolled.
Discussing the work done by the
department during the last Sum-
mer Session, he stated that only
through the strongest interest and
genuine enthusiasm on the part of
the students could the task of pre-
senting seven plays in a -period of
eight weeks have been accomplish-
ed. The Mendelssohn theatre, he
said, is probably the most complete
plant in the country available for
the use of college dramatic com-

Helen Wills Moody, Elizabeth
Ryan Reach Semi-Finals
at Wimbledon.
(By Associated Press)
Wimbleton, July 1-The unex-
pected downfall of Helen Jacobs,
America's second ranking tennis
player, at the hands of Cecilia Aus-
sem, of Germany, featured play in
the British championship today,
but failed to prevent the United
States from landing two of its rep-
resentatives in the semi - final
round of the woman's singles.
Miss Jacobs, sadly off her game,
and lacking stamina, was elimi-
nated in the quarter finals in
straight sets, 6-1,6-2.
Elizabeth Ryan, veteran Califor-
nia player, who makes her home in
England, came through to the
semi-final along with the defend-
ing champion, Mrs. Helen Wills
Moody, Faulein Aussem, and Mme.
Rene Mathieu, who holds Suzanne
Lenglen's old place as ranking
player of France. Miss Ryan had
been conceded little chance against
the youthful Betty Nuthall, of Eng-,
land, but her greater experience
and more varied game brought vic-
tory, 6-2, 6-6, 6-0. Mrs. Moody
overwhelmed England's 1a t e s t
schoolgirl sensation, Phyliss Mud-
ford, 6-1, 6-2. And Mme. Mathieu
disposed of Joan Ridley of England
6-2, 6-1.
In the semi-finals tomorrow Miss
Ryan meets Fraulein Aussem, while
Queen Helen opposes Mme. Math-
In doubles also Mrs. Moody and
Miss Ryan forged into the semi-
final round. This strong combi-
nation which recently won the
French championship eliminated

James Morton, '31,
for First Semester
Regular School

of Next
Year. j

James D. Morton, '31, has been
suspended for the first.semester of
the next school year as the result of
having flown an airplane without
first having having obtained a per-
mit, Walter B. Rea, assistant to the
dean of students, stated yesterday.
Morton's case is the first involving
discipline in which the automobile
regulation has been applied to use
of an airplane.
Morton dropped into Devil's lake,
near Adrian, while flying a plane
owned by Milo Oliphant of the Yp-
silanti airport, on May 31, the acci-
dent being cause by motor trouble.
The plane was badly damaged, and
Morton sustained a fractured jaw,
several broken ribs, and cuts and
The accident report brought the
case before University officials and
an investigation revealed that the
student has nearly 40 hours of fly-
ing time to his credit. While he
holds no pilot's license, a license
given for 10 hours of flying, he
lacks only 10 hours of the time
necessary to earn a limited com-
mercial license.
More than a dozen students hold
University permits to fly planes,
such permits being granted in cases
where the student is seeking a li-
cense. It was pointed out that Mor-
ton might be classed with this
group, and that his suspension
l is due to failure to make applica-
l tion for a permit.

"Much that modern painters
claim as discovery is merely re-
discovery," remarked Prof. Bruce
M. Donaldson, speaking on "Dis-
tinguished M o d e r n American
Painters", yesterday afternoon in
Natural Science auditorium. With
the aid of screen ilustrations, Pro-
fesor Donaldson commented in his
lecture on the merits and faults in
the works of a group of promi-
nent national painters, some con-
temporary, but, as he pointed out,
not all strictly "modernistic."
Recalling Whistler's statement
that there never was an art lov-
ing nation or period, Professor Don-
aldson noted the fact that works
of art come from the few who are
most sensative to certain influ-
ences of nature. An artist, he
stated, may earn recognition be-
cause he holds a distinct place in
a period of development or trans-
ition, but he may also become not-
ed for excellent technique or acces-
siveness to impulse.
"There were radicals and conser-
vatives among the cave-painters of
Spain," Professor Donaldson said,
in considering George Inness, who
began as a realist. Inness, he
showed,awas intelligently radical,
representing what he saw without
selection or arrangement and not
exposing the back alleys of a city.
Inness, too, was capable of change
and development.
Frank Duveneck was indicated as
an artist who gave distinction to
his work through sheer skill, com-
parable in craftsmanship to Val-
asquez and Frans Hals. "Today, his
place is more firm than it was ten
years ago," Professor Donaldson
Particular attention was called
to the painting, "Jonoh and the
Whale," by Albert P. Ryder, which
"makes you feel the meaning
through lines," according to the
As a contrast to the other paint-
ers of the group, John Marin, a
modernist, was mentioned. Rep-
resentative of the radical tendency,
Marin distrusted the lines of de-
velopment of the existing stand-
ards and went back to elementals,
Professor Donaldson indicated.
Arthur B. Davies, termed a "lyr-
ical artist',, was presented as one
sensitive to the influences of his
time and big enough to try any
means to gain the ideal.

Lansing, July 1.-Despite two an-
nouncements that he "will not
run," friends of Gov. Fred W.
Greencame to Lansing Monday to
demand he be a candidate for a
third term. They brought with
them nominating petitions bearing

governor told them he will think
over their proposal, but hastened

satisfied with the progress and the
popularity of the summer session.'
Enrollments for special subjects
will take place next week. Week
end courses in the school of edu-
cation and public health institutes

the week is normal a new record
will be established with total en-
rollment passing above the 4,000

year was 3,940.
Keeler Traces History
of Power in All Ages
In outlining the history of power
from the time of its origin to the
present, Prof. Hugh Keeler of the
University of engineering faculty
explained to Kiwanians at their
meeting Monday that the greatest
advances in civilization have been
made in the utilization of 'power.
"There are four kinds of power,"
Prof. Keeler stated, "steam, tidal,
wind and water and all have their
origin in the sun." The use of wa-
ter power dates back to the time of
Mech Nic, an Egyptian from whose
name the word "mechanic" is be-
lieved to have derived." It so hap-
pened," he said, "that this man was
the only person living on the Nile
who was able to make use of water
power in the grinding of grains.
Others living along the shores of
the river sent :or him and he soon
became famous."

play. The 32 players having the
lowest qualifying scores will be en-
tered in the championship compe-
As will be easily seen, this
"tabloid" golf has its advantages,
especially for tournament playing.
For one thing, it is more difficult
for one's opponent to perform any

Then again, the gallery doesn't
have to move around very much-
unless some disgusted golfer hurls
a club in his direction.
The 32 putters who qualify for
the championship matches will
putter around through the semi-

be 36 holes, match play. The win-
ner and the two runners-up will
be rewarded for proficiency as fol-
lows: first prize, silver cup; second
prize, medal; third prize, member-

Those who fail to qualify for theI
match play competition are to hold
a special handicap tournament, it
was announced. This consolation
tourney will probably be held some
time next week.

rounds will be required to pay only
half the usual "green fee," accord-
ing to the course manager. For
