Lawrence J. Damm Discharged When
Jury Returns Verdict After
Being Out For Two
LEAVES LIQUOR SITUATION
MUCH THE SAME AS BEFORE
J. H. Miuzey, '16, and Ward Hopkins,
'16, kre Chief Witnesses
Lawrence J. Damm, the Washington
street saloonist charged with selling
liquor to students last May, was found
"not guilty" by the jury in the circuit
court yesterday afternoon. The trial
ocupied the entire day and the jury
was out for two hours before arriving
at a verdict.
The case was called for trial at nine
o'clock and the task of impnelling the
jury took nearly the entire morning.
J. H. Minzey, '16, the complainant, was
the first witness called. Minzey testi-
fied that he had bought two glasses of
beer for himself in Damm's place, on
the evening of May 20, 1913, and had
also purchased one for Ward Hopkins,
'16. Upon cross-examination by Col.
J. P. Kirk, counsel for the defense,
Minzey refused to admit that he had
made the complaint against Damm un-
der compulsion, although Kirk tried
to establish such a motive.
Ward Hopkins, '16, next took the
.stand and his story of the drinking in
DAmm's saloon on the evening of May
20, 1913 was substanti4lly the same
as that told by Iinzey
The defendant was the lest witness
called and he admitted selling the
liquor to Minzey and Igpkins but
stated that he did not know they were
students, No other witnesses were
called and the arguments by the oppos-
ing counsel followed.
Prosecutor Burke stated that the
verdict in this case leaves the liquor
situation in much the same state as it
was before Damm was arrested. The
case will not be appealed.

Are Doing Good Work According
to Captain Brown.'
According to the latest available fig-
ures, Michigan has the largest state
university library in the country. The
statistics for the year 1912 show the
Michigan library to contain 305,684 vol-
umes, while Illinois and California
come a close second. Several of the
endowed universities of the east have
larger libraries than the state insti-
tutions. A partial list for the year
1912 is found elsewhere on this page.
The Illinois library has a much
larger annual appropriation than
Michigan and is growing far more
rapidly. At present Michigan's num-
ber of volumes has been increased to
over 328,000. A staff of 20 assistants
is required for their ,care whose sala-
ries amount to $29,980.00.
The library staff has been busy all
summer repairing and replacing books
damaged in the south wing fire last
spring. Librarian Koch estimates that
about 3,000 volumes and periodicals
were damaged or destroyed.
Comedy Club to Hold Tryouts Friday.
Owing to the fact that many students
who wished to try out for member-

ed to hold additional tryouts Friday
afternoon from 4:00 till 5:00 o'clock.
Gordon C. Eldredge, '14, was elected
secretary-treasurer of the club irb
place of Joseph Turpin, '14, who has
withdrawn from the university.
"The work of Grauman, Young,
Shapiro and Fox has been especially
pleasing," announced Captain Brown
of the cross country squad last night,
preparatory to starting on a seven
mile grind with his squad of distance

man is particularly commendable,"

ent, regardless of class or department.
Captain Brown has expressed a de-
