After months spent in investigating the United States Steel Corporation, the Stanley Congress committee has ended its hearings and will report about May I, recommending far-reaching legislation. It will also recommend, it is stated, that laws be enacted prohibiting interlocking boards of corporate directors; separation of industrial corporations and interstate transportation facilities, by control of which the steel corporation is able to control rates on practically all shipments of ores; restriction of ownership of minerals, coal and other natural resources of industrial plants, and the overcapitalization of great industrial corporations.

The plan of a yard dormitory at Harvard University has been abandoned, at the prospect of a series of buildings to be located on the Charles river and which will house the entire freshman classes. The plans, it is understood, call for accommodations for at least five hundred students.

It is hoped to have the buildings completed by next September.
