Motions and Resolutions.

On motion of Mr. Gansser, 200 additional copies of Senate bill No. 96 (fille No. 59) were ordered printed for the use of the Senate.

Mr. Wood offered the following resolution:
Senate resolution No. 29.

Whereas, it has come to the attention of this Senate that a report by the War Department appropriation sub-committee has been reported to the House of Representatives, which contains several provisions which, if passed by the House and the Senate, will mean the breaking down of the Organized Reserve scheme as created by the amended National Defense Act of June 4, 1920, and

Whereas, the funds for the continuation of certain activities namely: the establishment of Divisional and Regimental Reserve Headquarters offices have been drawn from the allotments of the budget set aside for the maintenance of the Regular Army for the fiscal year, 1923, and

Whereas, the aforementioned committee report, if passed by the House and Senate, prohibits the future draft of funds for Reserve Activities from allotments appropriated for the Regular Army and provides no funds in lieu of those prohibited to be so drawn, and

Whereas, in event of any major emergency, the Organized Reserves will constitute the greater part of the defensive forces of the nation, and

Whereas, the present conditions throughout the world, and particularly in Europe, are such that no man can say how long this Country will remain at peace, therefore be it

Resolved, that the Michigan State Senate in session assembled, is unalterably opposed to and strongly condemns any action such as above stated, which will hamper or reduce the efficiency of the Organized Reserves, and that

These resolutions be transmitted to those who are in a position to exercise influence in diverting this legislation, which if enacted would be nothing less than a nullification of the only military policy our country has ever had, and would void a most important act of Congress itself and would be nothing less than a National calamity, and

Be it further resolved, that a copy of these resolutions be sent to every member in Congress from Michigan, with a request that he refrain from voting on this very important legislation until he fully understands its full purport, and realizes that the passing of this appropriation as recommended by the House sub-committee means the wrecking of the Organized Reserves, the third component part of the Army of the United States.

Mr. Wood moved that the resolution be referred to the Committee on Military Affairs.

The motion prevailed.

General Orders.

Mr. MacNaughton moved that the Senate resolve itself into Committee of the Whole for consideration of the general orders.

The motion prevailed and the President designated Mr. MacNaughton as chairman.

Accordingly the Senate resolved itself into Committee of the whole, with Mr. MacNaughton in the chair.

After some time spent therein the committee rose; and, the President having resumed the chair, the committee, through its chairman, reported back to the Senate, favorably and without amendment, the following entitled bills:

Senate bill No. 109 (file No. 76), entitled

A bill to provide for the purchase of primary school lands by the State when necessary for the establishment of State Forest Reserves, State Parks, or other reserves for State purposes, and to make appropriations therefor. Senate bill No. 89 (file No. 75), entitled

A bill to empower the United States of America to acquire lands in the State of Michigan by purchase or otherwise for establishing, consolidating and extend ing National forests, and to grant to the Unitcd States of America all rights necessary for the proper control and administration of lands so acquired.

Senate bill No. 118 (file No. 89), entitled

A bill to amend section 7 of Act No. 168 of the Public Acts of 1913, entitled "An act to provide for a State superintendent of weights and measures, State, county and city sealers and inspection of weights and measures, prescribing their powers and duties, providing penalties for íraud and deception in the use of false weights and measures and confiscation thereof, and repealing sections 4882 to 4897, inclusive, of the Compiled Laws of 1897," being section 6240 of the Compiled Laws of 1915.

The bills were placed on the order of Third Reading of Bills.

Mr. Gettel moved that the Senate adjourn. The motion prevailed, the time being 9:00 o'clock p. m. Accordingly, the President declared the Senate adjourned until tomorrow, Wednesday, February 14, 1923, at 2:00 o'clock p. m.
