WASHINGTON, June 24. - (P) -
Despite strong signs that President
Roosevelt would demand enactment
of his tax-the-rich program at this
session of Congress, Democratic lead-
ers today called upon him to settle
the disputed question by stating his
Even before congressional chiefs

him, asserted that Mr. Roosevelt

Senator Joseph T. Robinson, the
majority floor leader; Speaker Joseph
W. Byrns and the chairmen of the
Senate and House tax committees,
went to the White House late in the
day for the important parley, ar-
ranged at their request.
Beforehand Robinson had ex-
pressed the personal belief that im-
mediate action would be sought on the
executivedrecommendations for a
''wider distribution of wealth"' by an
inheritance tax and higher levies on;

pressed the belief that the President's
recommendations could not be put
through at this session, said imme-
diate action would require another
month, delaying adjournment well
into August.
Speaker Byrns, meanwhile, indi-
cated at a press 'conference that he
would like to see the tax question dis-
posed of at this session.
President Roosevelt did not specify
in his recent special message whether
he wanted, his program enacted at
this session, but he inferred as much
when he said his recommendation for
a constitutional amendment to do
away with Federal and State tax-
exempt securities could go over until
next session.
The pre-conference belief of House
leaders was that considerable trouble
would arise unless quick action was
taken. One, who declined to be quot-
ed by name, recalled that 22 Senators,
with Robert LaFollette and William
E. Borah in the foreground, had
signed a round-robin demanding ac-
tion before adjournment.
"Unless the Senate does agree to
act," he said privately, 'those 22 Sen-
ators can get together and tie up the
whole legislative program. They can
filibuster any bill that comes along."
Members of the LaFollette group
indicated early in the day that their
their demand would not be relaxed,
and that if a partial tax program
was offered they would be prepared
to offer expanding amendments.

Robinson contended that the tax
proposals should be enacted before
adjournment to avoid leaving a cloud
of "uncertainty" over the country
during the summer adjournment.
Harrison, who previously had ex-

Tigers Defeat
Washin ton In
Close Contest
After matching three runs scored by
Washington in the thirteenth, Detroit
won in 14 innings from the Washing-
ton Senators yesterday, when Elden
Auker's fly to right field scored White.
The score was 9 to 8.
Tommy Bridges, seeking his twelfth
victory of the season, started for De-
troit, and, after allowing five runs
in the first two innings, pitched score-
less ball for 10 innings.
But Kuhel's double, Stone's scratch
single, an infield out, Goslin's error,
and a single by Travis gave the Sen-
ators three runs, and apparently the
Owes batted for Bridges in the
thirteenth and doubled. Fox walked,
and the Tigers were given new life.
Greenberg's single, and Goslin's
double tied the score, sending the
game into the fourteenth inning.
Singles by Hayworth and Clifton
put the winning run on third, and
Auker won his own game here with
an outfield fly. Whitehill went all
the way for Washington.
Victory left the Tigers still in fourth
place, one-half game behind Chicago
and five games behind the league-
leading Yankees.
Washington plays at Navin Field
, again today.

Tie For Lead
Even With Princeton Man
In First 18-Hole Round
Of Intercollegiates
Will Play 18 More
Qualifying Holes
Michigan Leads Team Play
With 302; Georgia Tech
Is Second
WASHINGTON, June 24 - (P) -
The pair of unrelated youngsters
named Malloy, Jack of Princeton and
Woodrow of Michigan, kept even with
the Congressional course's par 72 to-
day to take the lead in the first half
of the 36-hole qualifying test of the
National Intercollegiate Golf Cham-
Michigan, defending team cham-
pion, easily outpointed all rivals to
the half-way mark.
Jack, 21, from Tulsa, Okla, carded
a couple of 36's for his par round,
while Woodrow, a year older and the
Ann Arbor city champion, came in
with an identical card.
They were just a shot better than
lanky Fred Haas, Louisiana State,
who was even par up, but lost a stroke
coming home. Lewis Johnson, of
Charleston College; Erwin Laxston,
North Carolina; and Charles Kocsis,
of Michigan, were grouped with 74's.
All of the former champions-John-
ny Fischer, Michigan, Walter Emery,
Oklahoma, and Charles Yates, Geor-
gia Tech - found trouble along the
route over the long, bunkered Con-
gressional course, with Fischer rec-
ording a 77, Yates a 78, and Emery a
The Michigan team turned in a low
four-man score of 302, placing them'
11 blows ahead of Georgia Tech, A2
"ahead of Oklahoma, and 13 in front
of Georgetown.
Even with par on the first nine,
with two birdies offset with a pair of
bad holes, Woodrow Malloy dropped
a 12-foot putt for a birdie on the 18th
after approaching too boldly on the
11th and trapping his tee shot on
the short 12th. Kocsis, after losing
two shots on the first nine, equalled
par on the way in.
The Michigan card: Fischer, 38-39-
77; Larry David, 42-44 86; Charles
Koscis 39-35-74; Dana Seeley 41-38-
79; Allan Sanders 43-46-89.
Blab s on Predicts
Dictatorship (Will
Follow Denms' Rule
WELLESLEY, Mass., June 24 - VP)
Roger W. Babson, noted statistician,
tonight predicted that' Democrats
would remain in power until they
"made as many mistakes as the Re-
publicans did -'and then we'll have
a dictatorship."_
Speaking at the opening session of
the three-day political conference at
the Beacon School, Babson asserted
that "democracy as now set up is
doomed, and it will be supplanted by
the same form of government that is
being planned in Italy"
"Our voters," he said, "will have to
be parents of at least two children
and before being allowed to vote they
will have to take examinations in
Federal, state and local government.
Only a religious revival can save de
mocracy as it now stands, and we'll
have that."

13 May Make Up
Work In Summer
Sweet, Ellis Head List Of
Ineligibles; Many Are
'Honor Point' Men
Ineligibility dealt a severe blow to
Michigan football hopes for the fall,
according to reports released yester-
day, although a majority of those de-
clared delinquent may be able to
make up their deficiencies by sum-
mer school work. Twenty were
named on the list, but only seven of
them will definitely not be able to
compete in the fall.
Those definitely declared out are
Joe Callouette, Detroit; Frank Lett,
Battle Creek; Bob Schroeder, Osh-
kosh, Wis.; Harold Sears, Grand Rap-
ids; Robert Johnson, Youngstown, O.:
Steve Uricek, Flint; and Paul Gleye,
Grand Rapids.
In Summer School
Those enrolled in summer school in
order to make up deficiencies include
Joe Ellis, Frank Dutkowski, George
Marzonie, Norman Nickerson, Art
Valpey, John Reick, Cedric Sweet,
Art Leadbeater, Harry Wright, Harry
Lutomski, Harold Floersch, Steve
Faudy and George Shakarian.
Schroeder and Lett, of those defi-
nitely declared out, were leading can-
didates for Varsity berths. Schroeder
is a freshman tackle and his play in
spring practice stamped him as Var-
sity material. Lett, a sophomore, was
an all-state end in high school but
was shifted to a guard position in
the spring where it was hoped to ut-
ilize his speed and strength.
Those entered in summer school in-
clude -several of Vasity caliber, in,.
cbing twos letter-men ,. o ef whom"
will probably form the nucleus of the
1935 backfield. The letter-men are
Sweet and Ellis, both sophomores.
20 Named In Report
Sweet last season established him-
self as one of the outstanding full-
backs in the Conference, and may be
called upon to assume the kicking
duties this year as well as carry the
brunt of the plunging and direct the
secondary defense. Ellis, hailed as a
passing threat last year, was handi-
capped by injuries.
Although 20 were named insthe
report from a squad of 65, adminis-
tration officials stated that the per-
centage of failures is considerably less
than that of a year ago. A majority
of the grid 'candidates won "honor
point" grades, it was announced.
Honor-point gridders, whose schol-
astic standings are in excess of the
minimum requirements ',many of
whom approach "cum laude" stand-
ards, include: J. Laurence Barasa,
William Barclay, Dave Barnett, Frank
Bissell, George Bolas, Charles Brand-
man, Bob Campbell, Bob Cooper, Fred
Cushing, Chris Everhardus, Doug-
