SYNOD TO TIL FUND EOF Dr. Sunberg's Charges of Degree Irregularities to Be Pressed, Also, Members Assert. Snout. Tkugeam to Tbs Gazsrra Timta GREENVILLE, PA., June 28. Despite the fact that the committee appointed to investigate the charges made against the Thiel College beard of trustees by President Sundberg before the Pittsburgh Lutheran Synod meeting in Erie yesterday reported back with no encouragement to foster further inquiry, it is known that the entire synod is aroused and will demand a thorough investigation. Dr. Sundberg charged the board members with numerous irregularities in the functioning of the school, the most serious charge regarding the use of endowments for general college funds. "The fact that the committee disregarded the charges and refuses to investigate is nothing but an admission that the irregularities are true, or at least have some foundation," said a synod member in Greenville today who attended the convention. Demands Probe Forthwith. He further added that an immec;-ate investigation should be made and "any true charges of embezzlement should be prosecuted luliy by the law." Dean Luther Melmberg exhibited charts at the convention yesterday which showed that the endowment of the college went below that of the previous year. Not a member of the board explained the break in the diagram, which, as another synod member said, was but "admission that efforts ' are being made to blanket President Sundberg's charges." President Sunberg was asked at the convention yesterday to write on paper his charges, but he refused on the ground that the board denied him the privilege to receive on paper why he "was unfit to preside as president of the school." However, he exhibited a willingness to continue with his charges should the eynod desire it. Deny Degree Charges. Local officials of the school refuted the charge made by President Sundberg that Thiel wa a "degree school." "Thiel is acknowledged and a member of the Association of .American Colleges, the Association of Colleges and secondary schools of the Middle States and Maryland, and the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York. We are fully rated as a high- grade four-year standard college. The charge that the trustee members have voted themselves degrees has nothing whatever to do with the rating of the school in regard to students," said a Thiel professor this evening. Sundberg Matter Ignored. ERIE, PA.. .June 28. (A. P.) Delegates to the annual meeting here of the Pittsburgh Synod of the United Lutheran Church attended a morning service today at Luther Memorial Church, after which the cornerstone of the new memorial was laid.

June 28. (A. P.) Opposition to tariff revision at the next session of Congress was expressed today by Chairman Green of the House ways and means committee. In a statement discussing the Brussels meeting of the International Chamber of Commerce he declared the proceedings "clearly show Europe Intends to bring every possible pressure upon the United States to lower its tariffs." Replying to the argument that Europe otherwise would be unable to pay its debts, he declared there was no substantial foundation for the contention that such relief was necessary, and pointed to "an insistent demand in this country that the tariff be raised with respect to certain industries," although there also is a demand here "in certain quarters" for downward revision of the tariff. , MARINE INTELLIGENCE.

Gary said today he believes he has found the elixir of youth. The veran head of the United States Steel Corporation said the elixir's simple components were prescribed for him by the dietician and staff of the Gary hospital of the Steel Corporation' at Birmingham, Ala., during his recent tour of inspection. Moderate exercise, plenty of air and pure water, plenty of sleep, equanimity of temper and hard mental' and physical work over not too long a period these were the first elements of Mr. Gary's prescription.-. Little meat, little starch or fat or sweets, plenty of Montanans Flee From Homes as New Quake Hits CoBtienr from Firtrt Page. new shock today, virtually all of the county buildings of Meagher county and many of the business structures have been demolished with an estimated loss of 2100,000. A property damage toll of 1100,000 was also exacted at Three Forks, it was reported. School Wrecked. The little town of Willow Creek, a community of 300 inhabitants, today purveyed the wake of destruction left by last night's earthquake. The two largest buildings in the town, the school and the principal business structure, were badly damaged. t It was reported last night that Willow Creek was being destroyed by fire, but today's reports revealed that there had been no fires in the town. Trains Rerouted. The center of the disturbance, authoritative information here indicates, was in the Lower Gallatin Valley, where smaller towns bore the brunt of the earthquake's damaging effect. Northern Montana last night felt a series of light earth shocks, none of which caused material damage. Railroad officials in the south central section of the state today were organizing their forces to repair the damage wrought by landslides and the boulders tossed down from mountains by the tremors on their tracks. The Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul officials announced that all transcontinental trains would be routed over the Harlowton Great Falls-Butte line while the cave-in in the Lombard tunnel is being cleared. Prisoners in the county jail at Billings were panic-stricken when the second tremor last night split the floor of the courtroom above the jail. Panic Prevails. Near-panic conditions that prevailed In virtually every city in Western Montana when the tremors bespoke their fury last night had subsided laic today before the new shocks occurred and work of esti mating the damage, was begun. Damage in Butte was negligible, consisting of bricks being stripped from the facades of buildings and chimneys toppled over. The quakes left no marks on the more than 1,000 miles of underground workings of the Butte copper mines. Thousands of men labored in the slopes and drifts while the quake was most severe. The earth movements last night were of an oscillatory character, a back-and-forward, wave-like swaying. Today thunder and lightning played in the heavens above Butte. Avalanche Kills Two. LOS ANGELES. June 23. An avalanche In the high Sierras. 20 miles above Kcrnville, in Kern county, killed two Los Angeles members of a week-end fishing party late yesterday, reports reaching here today said. Meager advices telling of the tragedy did not mention any earth tremor connected with the slide, but spoke of a heavy rainstorm preceding it. Washington Also Shaken. SEATTLE, WASH.. June 28. (Universal Service.) While Montana was recovering from the panic which resulted from a series of earthquake shocks last night, a tremor shook the western part of this state. Although less severe than those preceding it, today's shock was felt from Deer Park east to Three Forks, a distance of 115 miles. Starting at 3:35 p. m., it lasted approximately 10 seconds. Prof. Sheldon Glover of the University of Washington reported that the university seismograph apparently registered the same shock. but the instrument indicated that the disturbance lasted from 30 seconds to two to three minutes. Want Airplane Pictures Of Montana Quake Area BOSTON, June 28. (A. P.) A recommendation that airplane photographs be taken of the area affected by earthquakes in Montana yesterday was made by the Engineering Economics Foundation which is engaged organizing knowledge o? earthquake hazards. Officers of tht Foundation also urged that Montain authorities obtain records on personal experiences of those who felt the shock and forward them either to the Foundation or to the Seismo-logical Society of America at Stanford University, Palo Alto. Cal. An airplane photographic survey, taken from a low-flying plane, offi cers of the Foundation said, wouIJ afford a basis for the study and would add greatly to thp knowledge of earthquake shock and effect.

Treasury Balance Proof llaTfrnnm of 25 Per Cent I Is Feasible Revenue. ELEMENTS AGREE i Tms Vwxrm Wm) " CSw Tork Timm Sm tKj- -"WASHINGTON. Jans 28. The unexpectedly hemry tax revenues paid Into the Treasury during the first six months of this year, which make it appear a surplus of at least 1400,000,-000 would be accumulated during: the next fiscal year under existing income and profits tax rates have, in the pinion of political leaders and tax experts. virtually put to root those Who still seek to keep the maximum swtax rate above 25 per cent. Whether a taaxflnum rate of less than 25 per cent as now advocated by certain of the leaders of both political parties, will be written into the law daring the next Congress is the real question now at issue. . Such, a conclusion is inescapable, after a discussion of the prospects for tax reduction that would include a sharp decrease in the surtax rates, with members of both parties. The high surtax advocates do not admit openly that the maximum rate in the revenue law to be written by the next Congress win not be kept at the present level of 40 per cent plus a normal tax of 6 per cent for which they fought successfully in the last Congress, but they are, nevertheless, making their plans now on- the basis of a 25 per cent surtax rate, pins a 4 to C per cent normal rate. Find 25 Pet Cent Enough. There seems to be a pretty general in i mi nt in which both the higlf and low surtax elements are included that the governmental expenditures and receipts have now been so balanced that a maximum surtax of not more than 25 per cent Is feasible and should be established. It also u agreed this can be- done and the tax rates on smalt incomes revised down-: ward again and still leave a margin of safety between receipts and expenditures. The important relation of income and profits tax payments made during the first six months of the present calendar year, to the tax reduction program is that these payments represent the first returns made under the new tax rates which went into effect in January, 1925. The aetoal payments made show a much larger revenue was received than bad been anticipated in the early estimates, the excess over estimates for the six months being perhaps $150,-0N.006. ! Thus-the rates adopted in the last Congress have been given a pretty thorough tryout and the forebodings ; of some who had held the resu't would be " disappointing from, the viewpoint of revenue received, completely disproved. The administration has contended forecasts of what might be done in the way of further tax reductions would have to await this demonstration and the result has been to bFing suggestions at this time that an even sharper reduction can safely be made by the next Congress than had bee a thought possible.

Coolidge Speeds To Father, Who Undergoes Knife Continued from First Page. j ried from his bedroom on the second floor of his home to the room in which he gave his son the Presidential oath of office three years ago and where the operation was performed today. The President's father suffered a relapse yesterday and abdominal trouble developed. Word immediately was sent to Swampscott anl President Coolidge ordered his physicians to rush to Plymouth. 1 In the meantime Col. Coolidge was attended by Dr. Cram, and early today Dr. C. S.

Miss Mary Trainer, a special nurse, accompanied the two physicians from Swampscott, and the two Rutland doctors also brought nurses, Mri Mao Johnson and Miss Shedd. Since May 1, when he came to Boston for an examination, the condition of Col. Coolidge's health has caused the President some anxiety. At that time his condition was diagnosed as "heart block" by Dr. Chute and Dr, Paul D. White, who made the examination at the Massachusetts General Hospital. "Heart block," they said, was characterized by a slow pulse. Col. Coolidge, at that time, said he did not know he was ill until he read about it in the newspapers, and a few weeks later when he was re ported to have had a fainting spell at his home here he told inquirers that he did not remember anything of the sort happening. Dr. Cram then said his patient's pulse and blood pressure were better than they had been for weeks. Coolidges Leave in Rain. BOSTON. June 28.

The train, made up of two Pullman sieeping cars, a parlor car, a com bination baggage and smoking car and the engine, was jpxpected to reach Ludlow, Vt., in about four hours. From there the Presidential party was to be driven by automobile over the 12 miles of road to Plymouth. Today's news came to Swampscott as the President and Mrs. Coolidge were preparing to go to church. Gravely concerned, they gave up their plans for attending the serv ices. Order Special Train. Orders were sent to the Boston and Maine Railroad for a special train e.nd after an early luncheon the President and Mr Coolidge were driven to Boston by automobile, reaching the North Station In about 41 minutes. With them were Frank W. Stearns, a friend of long standing, C'- S. A. Cheney, military aide to the President, 6ecret service men and newspaper correspondents. In response to news received yes terday of a sudden relapse in Col. Coolidge's condition, Dr. James F. Coupal, the President's physician, and Dr. Arthur I. Chute cf Boston, left Swampscott at - 6 o'clock this morning by automobile for Plymouth, arriving there around noon. Dr. Chute is associate professor of genito-urinary surgery at Tufts College. Depressed by Bulletins. Only a score of persons saw the President and Mrs. Coolidge pass through the train shed today, and a brief handclapping was their farewell The bulletins received on the train depressed the President greatly. Mrs. Coolidge tried to console her husband, but he appeared to be buffering intensely under this, his second grief in two years. While tn route he went over the situation thoroughly and ordered the railroad to keep the train in readiness at Ludlow to take his father to Boston for an operation should the consultation decide that it was required. All last night the President remained at the long distance telephone getting bulletins frequently from the bedside. At midnight when the patient was still in a critical condition, he made his decision to Fend Dr. Coupal to the bedside and ordered Dr. A. L. Shute of Boston, a genito-urinary surgeon to join the White House, physician for a consultation and operation If necessary. Lawyer Assails Dry Laws. ATLANTIC CITT. N. J.. June 28. (A.
