It If Scripps-Hciraril Xrtcspapcr Alliance WASHINGTON, May 17.—Over protest of the state department, the house immigration committee Monday will report out the Box bill which drastically reduces im migration from Mexico and puts it under the national origins quota. The Box bill practically is the same as the .Harris bill that passed the senate this week by a vote of almost four to one.

Up until the last year, immigra tion from Mexico has averaged about 58,000.

TEXAN'S PLAN FOR DIVISION OF STATESTUDIED North to Follow Step If Proposal Goes Into Effect. 81l Scripps-Bowned Newspaper Alliance, WASHINGTON, May 17. —ls Texas follows Representative John Gamer’s plan of dividing into five states, in order to gain additional representation in congress, imme diate steps to offset this gain will be taken in the north, it was pre dicted here today. The Garner plan would give the territory, which now is Texas, ten senators instead of two, and several additional members in the reap portioned house of representatives. If the Democratic party makes the gains it is expected to make in the coming elections, this difference might be enough to give Democrats control of the senate at least. Can Sul>divide Freely Any definite indication that this might happen probably would cause the present congress to look with favor on requests that have been made in the past for permission to carve several new states out of the boundaries of old ones. Texas can subdivide at will, under the terms on which she entered the Union, but all other states must have permission of congress and in the past this never has been forth coming. However, St. Louis and Chicago both have conducted active cam paigns for statehood apart from the rural districts of Missouri and Illi nois, and other large eastern cities are ready to follow their lead, ap parently, if the opportunity is of fered. California’s Move Quickly There has been much talk in California from time to time of di viding that state, and Califorians here w r ere quick to revive it when the Texas plan was presented. Other western states have suffi cient area to talk of division on the basis Texas has, even without great er population. Any such rake for representation between the different parts of the country probably w’ould have for its basis the prohibition issue. Texas' new senators would add great strength tp the dry representation in congress, while if separate state hood were granted any of the large cities, they probably would elect wet senators and representatives.

By Science Service BERKELEY, Cal., May 17.—Th new comet discovered recently by the German observers Schwassmann and Wachmann may become visible to the naked eye on June 1, and certainly will be discernible with the aid of a small telescope or a pair of good field glasses. The last few nights of May and the first few nights of June will be great times for the army of ama teur telescope fans who make and use their own reflecting telescopes. With instruments of this type, the new comet easily can be seen if one knows where to find it. The orbit of the new comet has been calculated by F. L. Whipple and Phyllis Hayford of the stu dents’ observatory of the University of California, under the direction of Professor R. T. Crawford. Their preliminary results indicate the comet will reach its maximum brightness on June 1, when it will be only 8,000,000 miles away. This is very close for another celestial body to approach the earth, much closer than any comet has been for many years.
