Following Action, House Gives
President Power to Cen-
sor News


Washington, May 4.-The house by
a vote of 220 to 167 struck out the
censorship clause of the spy bill this
afternoon. The clause was killed
through adoption of an amendment by
Representative Graham of Pennsyl-
vania providing for the eli ation of
the censorship feature
Speaker Clark and ot Democratic
leaders, and Miss Ran in of Montana,
voted for this amendment. Majority
Leader Kitchin and some of the Demo-
crats who were alligned against the
administration in other fights voted to
retain the censorship provision.
Chairman Webb of the judiciary
committee, handling the bill for the
administration, closed debate. He said
he had received a message from the
president "two hours ago saying to
congress that the principles of this
section-the censorship section-are
absolutely necessary for the success
of this country in the war with Ger-
After the adoption of the Graham
amendment eliminating the censorship
provision, Representative Gard of
Ohio, a member of the judiciary com-
mittee, introduced a new censorship
provision. It was adopted by a vote'
of 195 to 183. The new provision gives
the president power to censor news,
but pfs up to a jury the question of
willful violation of the censorship
provision, and also the question wheth-
er the information published could be
useful to an enemy.

over miles of front, the Tommies them-
selves were authority for this state-

Not only were the Germansoldiers
fighting more desperately than ever
before, but today the German artillery
fire was vastly increased. In the face
of such violent combat all along the
line the whole front situation was ap-
parently unchanged. The war has nev-
er seen any harder fighting than that
on both sides of the Scarpe today.
The Canadians who yesterday ad-
vanced south of Lens, inflicting a hard
blow on the Prussians, were still hold-
ing their gains and repulsing all
counter attacks today.

In accordance with the rules govern-

the E-ray examination although a
small fee is asked to cover the cost
of the plates.

Because the divisions were recruited

Cheering Greets Statement That There
Would be no Separate
By William G. Sheperd
(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
Petrograd, May 4. - A dramatic
speech appealing to the patriotism of
the workmen and soldiers, delivered
here by Minister of Foreign. Affairs
Miliukoff from the balcony of the gov-
erment building, has apparently stav-
ed off the crisis that appears imminent
in new Russia.
From a hooting and jeering mob that
demanded his resignation, the minist-
er turned the throngs of soldiers and
workmen which had paraded the
streets throughout yesterday into a
crowd which cheered his utterances,
pledging unrelenting war on Germany.
Prolonged cheering greeted his
statement that the government would
never agree to a separate peace. The
situation was not entirely cleared up
today, however. A joint meeting of
the representatives of the provisional
government and the wo 's and
soldiers' committee sche for to-
night has been cancelled.
It is assumed this action wvas taken
to permit further conferences with the
leaders of the workmen and soldiers
who are demanding a greater partic-
ipation in the affairs of the govern-
ment. This would permit of an ex-
planation of the government's state-
ment approving agreements entered
into by the deposed Czar and his min-
All Members of Companies Are elig-
ible to Try for Positions at
This Time
The competitive examinations for
those who wish to try for offices in
one of the four law drill companies
will be held this forenoon from 9 to
12 o'clock in room D of the Law build
ing. It has been decided to have the
examination at 9 o'clock instead of 8
o'clock as formerly announced.
All members of the law companies
are eligible to take the examination.
It will cover the elementary work up
to and including the school work of
the company. This examination will
count half and actual drill work on the
field the other half in deciding the final
grade. The officers below the rank of
captain will be chosen from those
standing highest. The appointments
will be made some time next week
after the grades have been deter-
mined and other adjustments made.,
Fourth Year Men in Good Standing
Will Be Granted
The civil service commission has de-
cided to admit to positions which are
open only to college graduates, senior
students in American colleges and
universities who have not yet receiVed
their diplomas, if they are recom-
mended as being in good standing by
the schools which they are attending.
This information reached President
Harry B. Hutchins yesterday in the
form of a letter from Mr. J. A. Mc-
llhenny, president of the commission,
which follows:

"Referring to its previous, letter to
you in which you were requested to
furnish a list of senior students, the
commission advises you that it has
been decided to admit such students
to an examination in which gradua-
tion is prerequisite; provided they are
otherwise eligible and each applica-
tion is accompanied by a certificate
from the proper officer of the school
showing that the applicant is in good
