Dr. Ray Lyman Wilbur. Stanford Uni versity's new president, grave a minus mark today to the. automobile as a factor in college life in an address to parents of Stanford undergraduates and prospective students in the uni versity. Comfortably fat allowances contriDuiea mommy oy parem-o more well-to-do students were scoreu as time-wasters and handicaps In the college students education. 'We particularly regret that stu dents are often given too large an llowance of money, ' and some are given or loaned automobiles, by their parents, or others." President Wilbur's letter reads. "A student's principal business is his studies. He needs money enough to buy food, lodging. simple clothes, books, stamps and the like, and to pay certain fees and dues. admissions to a few entertainments and special dental and medical bills. Any money supplied beyond these simple needs means that time will be wasted in spending it. A surplus of money is one of the biggest handicaps possible for the youth who expects to be a good student. It takes time to run an automobile and it often leads to life off the cam pus, to extravagance and much fool ishness." 'There is no need," President Wil bur told parents, "to supply money for orchids for dance partners, or for taxi hire. ' The student who cannot be content to lead the simple, clean, in dustrious life expected on the Stan- lord campus, should go elsewhere.

SMALLER INCOMES PROPOSED Democrats to Recom. mend Extension.. $1000 CUT FROM EXEMPTIONS Single Persons Would Pay on All More Than $2000. LEVY ADDED TO MUNITIONS Surtax on Earnings of More Than TwoMllIIon Dollars Yearly Is Increased to Bring in Keve nne of 910,000,000. WASHINGTON", Aug. S. Reduction of the income tax exemption from f S000 to 12000 for single persons and from $4000 to 13000 for those with families was ordered recommended to the Sen ate tonight by Democratic members of the finance committee who are revis ing the House revenue bill. The change is proposed in an amend ment which would put the additional $1000 taxes in a separate classification and Impose on it a normal tax of 1 per cent. Instead of the 2 per cent as sessed against Incomes of more than $3000 for single persons and of more than 14000 for married persons. The amendment after an all-day dis cussion prevailed by a majority of only one vote, opposition persisting to the last. Decision Bay Be Reversed. After announcement of the result by Chairman Simmons, some of the Demo cratlc Senators said that the decision was tentative and might be overturned when the amendment waa submitted to the full membership of the committee next week. The rollcall on the amendment was not disclosed. Those who favored it emphasized the grsve necessity for additional revenue, and had estimates before them showing that the proposed exemption reductions would add about $8,000,000 to the treasury. It probably would Increase several fold the total number of taxable Incomes, r The amendment is the second change in the Income tax proposed' by Senate Democrats, who last night voted to Increase the surtax on Incomes in ex cess of 12,000,000 from 10 to 13 per cent. It Is estimated that the surtax change, will bring in $10,000,000 addi tional revenue. Excise Reduction Proposed. The sub-committee on the munitions section of the revenue bill. It was def initely announced, has voted to reduce the proposed excise tax on productions of copper and to add to the munitions list an excise tax on productions of lead, zinc. Iron and steeL Senator Stone, chairman of the sub-committee. did not disclose the amount Tf the pro posed taxes, -which hava not yet been considered by the full Democratic mem bership. "Personally." said Senator Stone. "I would recommend a tax on all abnormal profits on munitions ot war. A rea sonable profit could be established by experts and a tax levied on all above that figure." Motorcycle Rider Hurt.
