By a vote of 47 to 25, the sold-
iers' bonus bill was sent back to
the senat'e finance committee late
yesterday afternoon. In return-
ing the bill to the committee,t
the senate carried out the re-
quest of President Harding made
earlier in the week in a message
warning the senate that passage
of the bill at this time would
"seriously imperil the financial
stability of the nation."
Party lines were wiped out in?
the vote, when nine Reputlicans",
voted against recommitting the
bill, and thus against the ad-1
ministration, and eight Democra- \N
tic senators went on record as
being in favor of coiplying with
the administration's request.
The President's victory led to a.
lively row, culminating in the ex-

"Niagara Falls and Vicinity" was
the subject of the lecture given by
Assist. Prof. K. C. McMurry, of the
geology department, Thursday after-
noon in Natural Science audtiorium.,
Indians Used It
In giving a short histor" of the
Falls he told of the time when their
chief importance to the Indians was
as a fishing place, where they caught,
the fish after their fall over the catar-
act. He then spoke of their import,
ance' as a portage route when the
French and English first penetrated
northern United States and eastern
Canada. The other essential feature
of the Falls, aside from their scenic
beauty, is the great water power furn-
ished by them.
"Geologically, the Falls and vicinity
-are a picture of some thirty--five or
forty thousand years ago," said Assist-
ant Professor McMurry. Among oth-
er geological facts he explained that
the Falls had receded a distance qof
seven miles since the glacial period
and that the present rate of recession
is about four or five feet per 'year in
the case of the Canadian Falls while
the American Falls hardly recede at
alt. Thlis is partially caused by the
fact that 95 per cent of the water of
the Niagara river flows over, the Can-
adian portion of the cataract.
Could be Great Waterway;
In speaking of the commercial and
industrial value of the cataracts, he
described the great resources of the
Northwest which might be carried
through the Great lakes and the St.
Lawrence to the Atlantic if it were
not for the Falls. If this difficulty
were overcome, ocean liners could
follow this route and the lake cities
would become ocean ports. "A project
to overcome this impediment will like-
ly be carried out," he added. .
In 'concluding, Assistant Professor
McMurry spoke of the Falls as a
source of water power. There has
been a great deal of discussion as to
whether the water should bq used for
power at the risk of destroying the
scenic beauty to a great degree. As-
sistant Professor McMurry stated that
if the resources of these gigantic cat-
aracts were developed to the fullest
they would furnish from four to sev-

Douglas Leaves Ann Arbor for Akr
Next Week After ii Years of Ser

"After dealing for over 11 -years
with university student life, telling:
people how to do it, I am going out to
see them do it." Such is the feeling
of the Rev. Lloyd C. Douglas, pastor of
the Congregational church, with refer-
ence to his departure next week for
Akron, Ohio, where in the Fall he will
assume the pastorate of the First Con-
gregational church of that city.
Mr. Douglas, who has had what he
considers sufficient experience for the
time being as religious advisor to stu-
dents, now feels that he would like to
take up religious work in the indus-
trial world. As Akron is an industrial
center,\and as the church to which he
he will go is one of the leading church-
es in that city, Mr. Douglas /feels that
the opportunity offered him will make
possible a .complete fulfillment of his
hopes and plans. He will have there,,
as associates on his staff, a parish
house director and a religious educa-
tional' director. The Rev. Howard S
