took what has been estimated at more
than $100 from the cash drawer. The
robbers then fled.
It was just before darkness set in
and shortly before 6 o'clock yesterdayI
that an Essex coach drew up a short
distance from the headquarters of the
coal company. Four men left the auto
and three of them entered the office
with revolvers drawn. The fourth re-
mained on guard outside. After they
had taken all the money in the drawer

a few seconds diqappeared' in tri

What is characterized as a nation-
wide student referendum on prohi-'
bition, to solicit the vote of every uni-
versity man and women and faculty
member in America, has virtually been
decided upon by college papers of the
country. The Michigan Daily will
act for the colleges of this state; ap-
pointments have been made to other,
large papers to handle the work in
other states.
The Yale News is originator of the
idea, which hastalready been triedt
Iwith success in the east, and will act
as national teller. It is planned to
announce the result In all the dailies
in. the country simultaneously on
March 25. The colleges which will be
asked to conduct votes in the state of
Michigan are: Adrian, Hillsdale,
Hope, Kalamazoo, M. A. C., Michigan'
ICollege of Mines, Albion and Alma..
The supporters of 'the plan back
their assertions of the importance of
such a vote by po:nting out that the
college students of today are the vot-
'ers and leaders of tomorrow. The
Idea alreadydhas the support of many I
prominent politicians at Washington. I
For these reasons it is felt that the
small efforts made so far should be
supplemented by a more inclusive
scheme to ascertain just how the stu-
dents and faculty of the United States
feel on the eighteenth amendment andj
the Volstead Act.
Th results of the vote conducted by
Toased Rolls recently will be counted

The Da ly receives word that any

the propositions affects his previous

Selection of next year's Varsity
cheerleader by an all campus ballot
to be taken at the time of the regular
spring election was passed upon by
the Student council at their regular
meeting last night at the Union. The
motion stated that candidates will be
chosen by the council this spring from
a group of tryouts and will be placed
upon the regular campus ballot for the
vote of the entire student body.
According to John W. Kelly, '24L I
president of the Student council, this
action was taken by the council for
the following reasons: "While realiz-.
ing the selection of men for office by
a campus vote is not always the most!
satisfactory way, the council still feels
that in the case of electing a cheer-
leader, the chief objection to a selec-
tion by a campus vote- unfamiliarity;1

his qualifications-would be elimin-

Sections of the immigration restriction1

country and such exclusion would be
"inconsistent" with treaty obligations

tended in letter to Chairman Johnson'

exclusion provision is necessary and
I must strongly urge upon you the!
advisablity in he interests of our in-!

Hughes said.
"The Japanese government has al-1
ready brought the matter to the at-,
tention of the department and there,
is the deepest interest in the attitude I
of Congress with respect to this sub-7
ject," the letter added.
Secretary Hughes called attention
to the existing understanding between
the two governments, under which'
Japan undertakes to prevent immigra-
tion of laborers to the United States
adding that the Japanese government 1
in this connection now regulates im-
migration to territory ,contiguous to
the United States with the object of'
preventing the departure from Japan#
of persons who are likely to obtainI
surreptious entry into thistcountry.
If a provision making certificates
necessary for immigrants coming intoI

said, it would be possible to obtainI
