Churchill Hurls Bitter Attack
At Lausanne Debt Agreement

Unfortunate Approach **.. ~*~*~,

LONDON, July 11.-(AP)-Win-
ston Churchill told the House of
Commons tonight that, knowing
American public sentiment thor-
oughly, he was convinced that "no
more unfortunate aproach toward
debt cancellation could have been
made than that prdcedure adopted
at Lausanna."
His bitter attack on the Lausanne
agreement drew a reproof from Ne-
ville Chamberlain, chancellor of the
exchequer, who asserted Mr. Chur
chill "had done no service to
iritain" by endeavoring to under-
mine the confidence aroused by the
Lausanne meeting.

Dr. Waterman
Tells of Work
In Near East
Archeologist Describes His
Findings on Expedition
To Mesopotamia
Showing for the first time some
of the slide pictures taken in con-
nection with the expedition, Dr. Le-
roy Waterman yesterday gave a'
Summer Session audience a vivid
description of the work of the most
recent archeological excursion to
Mesopotamia in a lecture at Natural
Science auditorium.
"The greatest contribution to an-a
cient knoWledge and probably the
greatest discovery of all time," Dr.
Waterman said, "was made by the
Semitic foreren in charge of the
Egyptian copper mines. This wasa
the form of alphabetic writing which
has come down through the Greeks
and Romans to us."t
Dr. Waterman denied the reports
current during the progress of the
expedition that he had found the
aticient tower of Babel. In a story
that he released whsile working atF
the Michigan site 30 miles south of,
Bagdad, he said, he told the news-
papers that he expected to uncovers
a "Tower of Babel." The news-j
papers, he claims, sensationalizedj
this story, asserting that he had un-
covered the Biblical tower. The real;
towel of Babel, he declared, was at
Babylon, a fact which has been,
known to scientists for 50 years.
The slides pictured the mounds
under which the buried cities were
found and the remains uncovered,
in the cities themselves. Among these,
were various household utensiis in-
cluding some vessels which looked
strikingly like the modern flask. ,

Wyndham Lewis. Clifford won first
prize in the field of the editorial
for his work "1789-1932.",
Tle contest was opened last April
for college students throughout the
country. Prizes were offered in the
fields of sketches, editorials, articles,
and book reviews. The winning
manuscripts will be printed during

Harmless; Assails 'Cor-
rupt' American Newspa-
per Operation
Charges that the government of
Soviet Russia was too much linked
up with the 3rd Internationale to
permit recognition by the United
States and less effective counter-
claims that communism was a "pro-
gressive form" even when it inter-
fered directly with the domestic in-
stitution of the nations outside of
Russia were brought forward in the
debate last night between Repre-
sentative Hamilton Fish, of New
York, and Senator Smith W. Brook-
hart, of Iowa, on the question of
"Recognition of Soviet Russia."
"We do not fear the overthrow of
our government, but we will not tol-
erate foreign interference with out
domestic institutions,", Representa-
tive /Fish said. Senator Brokhart
answered that by not recognizing
Russia we were in the same relation-
ships which we would be in during
war and that as long as this existed,
"Communists have a perfect right
to meddle in our affairs."
Three phatses exist in communism,
the revolutionary and political, the
religious, and the commercial, Rep-
resentative Fish pointed out. "We
have less to fear. politically, than
most countries," he said, "but the
greatest tragedy of the entire prob-
lem is that 10,000,000 Russian chil-
dren are, being taught hatred of any
God or any religion and total disob-

Senator Brookhart's answers to
charges that there was no such
thing as freedom of speech or of
the press in Russia were not that
these conditions were non-extant
but rather that the American press
was one of the "most corrupt and
most corruptly controlled institu-
tions," and .that there had seldom
been a time in the history of the
United States when "free speech
was really in existence."
"The single issue in the matter
of recognition," he continued, "is
the securing of adequate guarantees
from Soviet Russia that their offi-
cials who come to the United States
will divorce themselves from the
2rd Internationale. This is impos-
sible. Their consulates would be-
come hot-beds of propaganda."

To Be Taken Up Tomor-
row in Senate
WASHINGTON, July 11.-(A)-
A Presidential veto having doomed
the Garner project for Reconstruc-
tion Finance Corp. loans to individ-
uals, Congressional leadersnmade
ready tonight to 'set a new relief bill
on the road to the White House to-
An attempt will be made to have
this substitute measure authorize
Federal Reserve Banks to lend to
those in need, when the Federal Re-
serve Board approves. Senator Wag-
ner, New York Democrat, will spon-
sor this latest bill.
Hoping to have his way in the re-
lief legislation after all the dispute
it has caused, President Hoover fol-
lowed up his scorching message, ve-
toing the Garner-Wagner Bill late
in the day with another aimed to
simplify the additional work being
put upon the Reconstruction Corp.
He asked that the Federal Re-
serve Board Governor and Farm
Loan Commissioner be eliminated
as ex-officio members of the Recon-
struction Board, to be replaced by
men tree of other duties, and that
one more member be added as well.
If at all possible, the plan is to
have the Senate attack the relief
problem again tomorrow. Wagner
has his bill ready.
The provision to allow Federal
Reserve Banks to make loans to in-
dividuals, if the Board approves, was
introduced today by Senator Glass,
Virginia Democrat, sponsor of the
Federal Reserve System, and was
approved by Democratic leaders of
both Houses, along with some Re-
Senator Wagner said he did not
believe the President would object
to 'this, as the loans would not be
made from public funds, as under
the' provision of the vetoed bill.

Arguing on Prohibition
When Relief of Jobless
Is the Major Problem
A vigorous attack on "pink .intel-
lectuals" and radical college profes-
sors who use their position to spread
social rebellion was voiced last night,
by Rep. Hamilton Fish of New York.
Among the c h i e f ffenders he
named the univeisities'of Wiscon-
sin, Chicago, New York, Columbia,
Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Washing-
ton, and California.
"These men, in these institutions,"
he said, "do more to undermine the
faith of the American student and
of the American young people in
their government and ideals than Iall
the communist's in the country."
Wants Liberalism
Congressman Fish stressed, in-
stead, a doctrine of political liberal-
ism which would recognize the ex-
isting flaws in the government of
the United States and set about
mending them by legitimate and
constitutional action.
"I do not object," he stated, "to.
the sincere convictions of many col-
lege professors in these respects. I
believe they should have a perfect
right to their opinion. I do o5ject
however, to those who use their pos-
ition to teach these doctrines of
social rebellion to the students."
Particularly, he mentioned some
of the leading colleges and univer-
sities for women where, he said, this
"poisonous propaganda" is being
spread. "Young women," he added,
"are the most susceptible .to this'
kind of thing. Some of their profes-
sors get away with murder-."
Brookhart Offers Views
Distinct threats that he might nod
support the Republican party on its
platform in the next election to-
gether with a promise that he would
remain a Republicai but "not that
kind of a Republican" were made
last night by Sen. Smith W. Brook-
hart of' Iowa.
His principal clash is with the
liquor planks of both parties. He re-
fused to state whether or not he
would support President Hoover in
the November election.
Stating that it would take a "high-
powered microscope to tell which of
the two major party planks was the
worst," he said, "I am for prohibi-
tion, not for any surrender. The
most outrageous thing to me is that
the two great conventions should
spend all of their time arguing about
booze when 10,000,000 people are out
of work and 20,000,000 more need
Prefers Garner Bill
In ,connection with relief, Senator
Brookhart stated that "the Garner
bill is vastly better than the one
which the President wants, but it is
still wholly inadequate. The en-
trance of the United States govern-
ment into the field of money-lend-
ing is simply adding one more Shy-
lock to the business."
Senator Brookhart's remedy for
the entire situation is the creation
of a governmental agency with suf-
ficient funds and autlority to
handle the exportable surplus of the
farmers. "One billion dollars more
to the Farm Board would make this
possible," he continued.
Currency must also be stabilized,
he pointed out, and he advocated
the printing of Treasury notes and
the use of the price indices as a
barometer to show the correct stop-
ping point.
"Congress could do these things at
the present session if it wanted, and
it would want to do them if the
President said the word," he con-

low amateur in the national open
this year, tied with George Von Elm,
the business man golfer.
Fischer is cpld and deliber4te

always a chance-no matter how

that's one reason he won th inter-
