Mayor Wurster Suspends Patrolman
From Force Pending Outcome
of Affair
According to word received at a
late hour last night the condition
of August G. Muehlhauser1 '23,
has not changed to any great ex-
tent. Although he is slowly im-
proving from his serious condi-
tion, his wound is of such a a-
ture that it may cause further
trouble, hospital authorities state.
August C. Muehlhauser, '23, of San-
dusky,O., is lying In the University
hospital, perhaps fatally injured, and
Robert Clark, a member of the local
police force is temporarily suspended
from duty pending the investigation of
a shooting fray on South Ingalls street
early Sunday morning.
Officer Fires "in Aar"
At 12:1 o'clock Sunday morning
the police received a call from 209
South Ingalls street, saying that some
:students were creating a disturbance
outside the house and asking that they
be arrested. Patrolmen Aprill and
Clark answered the call. As the car
drew up to the curb Officer Aprill
jumped out and collered two of the
students, the other two running down
Ingalls street. Officer Clark claims
that he fired three, times in the air to
frighten the fugitives. At the third
shot, Muehlhauser fell. The four stu-
dents were taken to the police station
in the car.
Upon arrival at headquarters it was
found that Muehlhauser was injured.
He was hurried to the University hos-
pital, where he was operated on at
about 1:30 o'clock Sunday morning
by Dr. Cabot, of the medical faculty.
$15 Fines Assessed
The other men, two former students
and one senior engineer were arraign-
ed before Judge Thomas yesterday aft-
ernoon on a charge of drunkness.
Two of the men were fined $15 and
costs, and one of the former students
was bound over until next Monday for
further examination.
Pending the outcome of the affair,
Mayor Ernst M. Wurster has suspend-
ed Patrolman Clark from the force.

Upperclassmen Instructed to Start
Work Immediately on Full
Student opinion on the present rules
regarding dances and other forms of
entertainments, regular convocations
of students, and the relationship be-
tween the student body and the facul-
ty were voiced Sunday afternoon at a
representative gathering of juniors
and seniors called by Le Grande A.
Gaines, Jr., '21E, president of the Stu-
dent council, in the assembly hall of
the Union.
Resolution Adopted
A resolution proposed by W. C.
Palmer, '22L, was adopted, which
reads as follows: "Whereas, of late
years there has grown up about the
campus utter disrespect for time hon-
ored Michigan traditions, the result
of which has been that true Michigan
spirit has been relegated to the dis-
card; and, whereas, any real improve-
ment on the campus must come from
the student body and not from the
faculty and alumni.
"Be it resolved, by the seniors and
juniors of the University of Michigan
in convocation assembled that a com-
mittee of five representative Michigan
men be appointed by the chair to thor-
oughly investigate the present state of
affairs on the campus regarding Mich-
igan traditions and institutions; that
the said committee of five shall have
power to hold such hearings as it shall
deem necessary for the proper func-
tioning of its office; that the aforesaid
committee, after due deliberation and
consideration shall report back to this
assembly in convocation its findings
as to conditions, with recommenda-
tions for improvement as a means of
formulating a truly constructive plan
looking forward to the restoring of the
great Michigan spirit.".
The following committee was named
to act on this resolution: W. C. Palm-
er, '22L, chairman; Maynard A. New-
ton, '22, R. Emerson Swart, '22E,
James I. McClintock, '21L, Thomas A.
McAllister, '21L.
Later Closing Hours Favored
Considerable discussion took place
over the present rules regarding the
hours for closing dances, and the jur-
isdiction of the Senate council's com-
mittee on student affairs over Univer-
sity social functions held outside of
Ann Arbor. The upperclassmen voted
that the music at Saturday night danc-
es should stop at 12 o'clock, but that
the party might break up later at a
reasonable hour. It was also agreed
that the authority of the committee
on student affairs was necessary for
all entertainments held under the au-
spices of University student organiza-
Another vote resulted in a draw be-
tween two issues, the first that the Un-
iversity should have authority over
parties both in and out of Ann Ar-
bor, and the second that he University
should have authority with distance
reservations. The committee appoint-

ed to look further into these matters
is composed of the following men:
C. Stewart Baxter, '21, chairman;
George O. Brophy, '22L, R. P. Dillon,
'21E, C. M. Campbell, '21, Willis

That the colonies of hispanic Am-
erica have a close relationship with
the United States from both a cultural
and a practical point of view was
brought out by Dr. J. F. Rippy, of the
University of Chicago, in a lecture on
"Why Should Hispanic American His-
tory be Studied in the United States,"
delivered yesterday afternoon in Na-
tural Science auditorium.

Prospects for the coming year will
be reviewed at the annual track pep
meeting for the Varsity and fresh-
man track squads to be held at 7:30
o'clock tonight in the west lecture
hall of the physics building. Students
at all interested in track are invited
to attend.
Coach Steve Farrell will discuss
the material on hand and will deal
particularly with the needs of the
squad. Capt. Larry Butler, '1, will
give a short talk, followed by other
speakers whom he has secured, all
former Michigan captains.
Carl Johnson, '20, will be there with
helpful encouragement and advice.
Eddie Carroll, '17, Michigan's great-
est miler, will tell the men what is
expected of them. "Red" Donnelly,
'19, will also be present.
From" the Board in Control, Phil
Bartelme will outline both indoor and
outdoor track schedules. Plans al-
ready made for the meets will be dis-
cussed. Prof. Ralph W. Aigler will
explain what constitutes eligibility.
Prof. Harry C. Carver will relate
some of his track experiences with
a few hints on the mathematical the-
ory and practice of winning first
places. Archie Hahn has agreed to
comment briefly.
Board in Control of Athletics to
Choose Between Bowl and "U"
Shaped Stands
"Any statement that the Board in
Control of Athletics has definitely
decided to build a bowl of 100,000
seating capacity at some future time
is incorrect," declared Prof. Ralph W.
Aigler, chairman of the board, yes-
terday. "The committee did not
abandon the plan of building a
'horseshoe' structure including the
present south stand as a part. Ac-
tion was taken merely to suspend
proceedings on this proposed struct-
ure, for the present, and in the
meantime to choose between such a
stadium and one of a bowl type.
Board Unanimous in Move
"Every member of the board felt
that for various reasons it was the
course of wisdom not to rush ahead
and finish the proposed stadium dur-
ing the spring and summer," contin-
ued the professor.
Further information with refer-
ence to the possible cost of a "U"
shaped stadium indicates that the fig-
ure of $400,000, estimated by the
board, is entirely too low. In addi-
tion to this fact, provided that $400,-
000 might be a reasonable figure, the
financial depression of the country
was in part responsible for the ac-
tion taken. It is doubtful whether

Rabbi Stephen S. Wise of New York
will speak at 8 o'clock Wednesday
evening in Hill auditorium on "Amer-

Rabbi Wise has been associated

$158000 GOALSET
Effort Bepg Put Forth to Make
Individuals Feel Worth of
"Ours is the opportunity of a gen-
erationt' said President Marion I.
Burton yesterday in speaking to the
the solicitors for the University of
Michigan foreign relief fund campaign
for $15,000 which will open today.
The President urged that the campaign
was one to help civilization and that
here was a chance for each individual
to perform the whole world a real
"Michigan has always had a world
view," he continued. "If we are to be
worthy of that heritage we must guard
with zeal the reputation which the Un-
iversity has for interest in the world
as a whole."
Combination of Three Funds
The campaign is a combination of
three funds: The Chinese famine
fund, the European students' fund, and
the European children's fund. Contri-
butors may divide their gift as they
please among the three funds. Al-
though any sum will be acceptable.
three dollars is the minimum which is
being requested. All contributions
must be in the form of cash or checks
made out to "cash."
The independents and faculty will
be solicited individually. Fraternities,
sororities, and league houses will be
visited by speakers who will receive
the gifts of all those in each house.
It has been decided not to set a fixed
amount which the individuals in the
houses are expected to give, since
many who might otherwise give much
more than the specified amount would
be restrained by such a system. It
is the purpose of this campaign to
make the individual man or woman
feel that he or she is giving because
the cause is worthy and not to let the
contribution be regarded as a tax
which means nothing.
Need Solicitors
More men to solicit independents
are needed. All those members of the
organizations selected to carry out the
solicitation who were not at the meet-
ing yesterday afternoon must call at
the desk in the Union lobby for theIr
lists and information today. Any oth-
er men who would be willing to help
in the campaign as independent solic-
itors are strongly urged to report at
the Union desk today and get a list
of men to see.
Those selected to speak at fratern-
ities can get their envelopes and rib-
bons together with any information
concerning the campaign which they
may desire any time after 3 o'clock to-
day at the Union desk.
The faculty solicitation will be car-
ried on under the direction of Alert

Jacobs, '21. All men working under
him are requested to report at 3
o'clock today at the desk in the Un-
ion. The organization for the drive
among the women is complete. Any
women solicitors wanting information
should call Marguerite Clark, '21, at
2730, Alice Hinkson, '21, or Bernice
Nickels, '21, at 1922-J.
