UNIVERSITY IJOMEN TO
DlETROIT ALUMNAE EXPECTED TO
GO AHEAD WITH PLANS
A third dormitory for women, for
the past two years the dream and
goal of alumnae all over the state,
will be realized before next fall, ac-
cording to a rumor which came from
official circles yesterday.
The Detroit branch of the associa-
tion of Michigan women has decided,
because of the war, not to wait to
raise the money for a dormitory com-
parable in size with the two now in
use, but to expend the funds they now
have in a small one.
The report stated that the associa-
tion intends to purchase a house, re-
model it, and furnish it in readiness
for the opening of college in October.
The residence, which will probably be
called "Alumnae House," is said to be
planned on a partly co-operative basis,
will accommodate about 16 girls be-
side the social director, and contain
comm rlo parlors, dining room, and
Claire M. Sanders, '04, of Detroit
is treasurer of the association and
many other prominent Detroit and Ann
Arbor women are interested in the
FIGHT ONTO PASS
BIG REVENUE BILL
Joffre and War Commission are
Greeted; by Thousands in N..
Meets with Oppos.
by George Martin
(United Press Staff Correspondent)
New York, May 10.-Marshall Joffre
heard the shrill cheers of thousands
of women and children today when the
French war commission traveled a
path of swirling flags and surging
crowds to Prospect park, Broklyn,
where the Lafayette monument was
More than 50,000 people greeted the
Frenchmen at the park. Ten thousand
little school girls almost hidden in a
fluttering field of American and French
banners sang the "Marseilles" as the
commissioners approached the shroud-
ed monument. Standing beneath a
huge American banner, Vice-Premier
Viviani received 10,000 francs raised
by popular subscription for war re-
lief and a silver loving cup. Joffre
received a sword.
KITCHIN LEADS DEBATE FOR
PASSAGE OF APPROPRIATION
Declares United States Should
War Expenses as They
Washington, May 10.-One of the bit-
terest intersectional fights in the his-
tory of congress was forecast when the
government's $1,800,000,000 revenue
bill, one of the largest single taxa-
tion measures in history, was formally
taken up for consideration by the low-
er body this afternoon.
The oratorical battle began when
Kitchin, in charge of the measure,
presented it with a plea for "all Amer-
icans to do their bit to finance the
war." "This bill must pass so our
children's children will not have to
pay for the war of this generation,"
he said. "This must be a pay-as-we-go
Claim Southerners Burden North
Northern men, Democrats and Re-
publicans alike, claimed the southern
members in control of the house have
"burdened the country above the Mas-
on-Dixon line with the war taxes but
have let the south off lightly. They
attacked particularly what they called
the "sectional system of taxation pur-
sued in the bill."
Five billion dollars, Kitchin said
must be spent by the United States in
the next year. "Billions of dollars of
bonds have been issued that will be a
burden on our children and our child-
ren's children unless we employ tax-
ation," he said.
Must Raise Every Dollar
"When this bill comes to a vote the
house must put this present burden
on ourselves who declared the war, and
show the necessary spirit of sacrifice.
No American can say, I, refuse to pay
my part.' I hope no man here will
complain that this bill taxes his state
and his district. There are a few pro-
visions in this billIwould vote for
in ordinary times but we must raise
every dollar on it. Our expenses in the
next year are already estimated at
$3,800,000,000. A man who wanted to
pay his taxes by bonds would be a
coward. I think we ought to pay half
the expense by taxation."
"We can't finish this debate before
some time Saturday," said majority
leader Mann, when Kitchin tried to
limit debate to two days. Kitchin did
not press his attempt. He began im-
mediately to explain the bill.
Fordney Says He Will Vote for Bill
Representative Fordney of Michi-
gan, ranking Republican member of
the ways and means committee, an-
nounced he would support the bill as
it is. Kitchin said he did not believe
the business men and manufacturers
were slackers. "They will stand by
this bill," he said. "If we refuse to
tax all the industries that have said
they will be ruined 'by this bill we
could not raise $100,000, but they will
Kitchin insisted there had been no
politics in the framing of the bill. He
said unless the tariff provision is
adopted shoes and other necessities
will have to be taxed. If Great Brit-
ain's income and excess profits taxa-
tion were enforced in the United
States, Kitchin said $5,500,000,000 could
be raised by them. Kitchin concluded
his speech at 2 o'clock. Immediately
a bombardment of questions started.
The 5 per cent tax on new automobiles
and new tires was subjected to at-
tack by many.
CERCLE FRANCAIS BANQUET
LAST SOCIAL AFFAIR OF YEAR
9OD LIT STUDENTS TAKE 'NO SEPRATE PEACE
PART IN INITIAL DRILL! BY U. S. SAYS LANSING
COL. P. E. BURSLEY STARTS
Nine hundred literary students, tak-
ing the new course in military drill,
filled the west walk of the campus
from North University to South Uni-
versity avenues, took part in the drill.
Colonel Philip E. Bureley was in
command and appointed temporary of-
ficers. Following the drill Colonel
Bursley stated, "I am very much
pleased with the turnout and expect
that many more will come out for
Monday's drill. Some probably took
advantage of the lenience with which
the first absence was considered. If,
however, after today, two absences
are recorded against a student, the
credit for the course will be lost to
him. To be marked as present, all
those who take the drill must be at
hand at 4:05 o'clock. We expect to
start at that time always."
Pre-medics who were out yesterday
for drill with the lit students will be
asked to withdraw because it con-
flicts with the drill which is done in
the Medical school. Permanent of-
ficers will be elected at next Monday's

ADMINISTRATION DOES NOT LOOK
FOR NEW GERMAN
Washington, May 10.-Stating that
the department had no intimation of
any forthcoming peace proposals from
Germany, Secretary Lansing late to-
day declared the United States would
"probably act only in concert with
the allies upon any peace proposals
that should materialize."
This is the first official announce-
ment that America is actually work-
ing in full accord with the allies. It
has been well known heretofore, both
from the speech of President Wilson
and from veiled comments of Secre-
tary Lansing that the United States
intended to make no separate peace.
It has not been known, however, that
a virtual agreement to this effect had
been reached. America's peace terms
are known in a general way from the
president's speech, but up to the pres-
ent time all administration leaders
have refused to be specific about
America's war aims or peace terms.
In brief, the United States is in the
war until Germank's ruthless subma-
t mnan'ce is elm°,inaled and until
: German ruthless .ss is crushed so
that it cannot again rise to threaten
the peace and security of the whole
