Robber Mtkes Easy Escape; Search
Of Building By Police Fails To
Reveal Clues
With the theater filled with persons
attending the matinee performance
and house employees on duty through-
out the building, an armed bandit held
up the auditor of the Majestic theater
yesterday afternoon and escaped with
the receipts of the four local Butter-
field theaters for Saturday and Sun-
day. The only estimate hazarded by
anyone in authority set the loss at
more than $3,000 in bills and change.
The thief, who was not masked, and
who seemed perfectly at ease, entered
the room just above the lobby, where
R. L. McHenry, Jr., auditor for the
theater company, was preparing to
bank the money. According to Mc-
Henry, he was busy with the accounts
when he heard a knock at the door.
He opened it, and was greeted with
the muzzle of a revolver. The bandit,
after forcing him to surrender the
money, ordered him not to raise the
alarm for 20 minutes, and left.
Three minutes later, McHenry start-
ed the search. Police were notified
and joined in the hunt. The thief,
as described by McHenry, was "of a
Latin type, probably an Italian, about
35 years old, clean shaven, about 5
feet, 7 inches tall, and spoke slightly:
broken English. He wore a brown
hat and a grey topcoat."
Two women students of the Uni-
versity, Florence Probst, '26, and a
friend, volunteerea the information,
while the performance was held up
and the house was being searched,
that they had seen a man answering
the description given of the bandit.
He had entered the upper box on the
south side of the house while the
theater was in darkness, and had re-
mained standing there until the lights
went on, when he ducked behind the
curtains and disappeared.i
The police searched the house, while
another group of officers patrolled the
outside of the theater, but nothing fur-
ther was discovered. To take advan-
tage of every possibility, policemen
watched the spectators closely as they
filed, from the theater after the per-
A description of the bandit and no-
tice of the robbery was promptly
wired to all near-by cities, while the
local police, although left without a
clue by the quiet disappearance of the
robber, continued the search. It is
thought that he left the theater by
the south exit and escaped by auto-
The loss to the theater company,
which operates the Majestic, Arcade,
Wuerth and Orpheum playhouses, was
thought to be fully covered by in-
surance, according to Gerald Hoag,
the company's manager.
Th' Majestic was robbed about a
year ago. At that time a bandit en-
tered the theater after the evening
performance had closed, blew open
the safe, and escaped with the money,
which amounted to more than $800.
The robbery yesterday was the first
to be carried out at the Majestic dur-

New Captain Is Known Throughout
Big Ten For His Aggresiveness
And Steadiness In Playing
Edward W. Chambers, '27Ed, star
forward on the Varsity basketball
squad for the past two seasons, was
elected captain of next year's five at
a meeting of the players held immedi-
ately after the game last night in the
field house locker room.
Chambers has become known
throughout the Big Ten for his steadi-
ness and aggressive playing, which
coupled with his scoring ability and
defensive play has made him a mark-
ed man in every contest this year.
Eddie broke into his first Conference
game as a guard and played that po-
sition during the first half of the sea-
son last year, until Haggarty's injury
necessitated his being used at for-
This year Eddie was a litte slow in
getting under way but after the first
few games it was definitely estab-
lished that he was the man to fit into
the Doyle, Harrigan, Molenda, Cherry
combination. Then came the semester
examinations which momentarily
threatened Michigan's championship
hopes, but after dropping three games
in a row Coach Mather's latest com-
bination of Doyle, Chambers, Reece,
Harrigan and Ginn hit a winning pace
that carried them into a tie for the
Coach Mather awarded Varsity
"M"s to seven members of the squad
and a like number to the first string
reserves. Captain Doyle, Captain-
elect Chambers, Harrigan, Reece,
Ginn, Oosterbaan, and Rasnick are
men who received the major award.
The "AMA" men are: Schroeder, Line,
Babcock, W. Kuenzel, F. Kuenzel,;
Gawne, and Baer. Of the men who re-
ceived letters, Captain Doyle and
Doug Ginn are the only men who will
be lost to the team next year.

League Makes
No Advance On
Council Plans
(By Associated Press).
GENEVA, March 8.-No progress
was made today in the crisis over the
question of enlargement of the League
of Nations' council. The opening ses-
sion of the assembly, convoked for the
election of Germany, adjourned to-
night after a dramatic appeal by the
president, Dr. Affonso da Costa, for-
mer premier of Portugal, for har-'
mony, without designating a day for
the next meeting. To gain time to
permit the reappearance of M. Briand
at Geneva, the sub-committees of both
assembly and council will take upI
auxiliary matters tomorrow.

of almost frenzied exchange of visits

Michigan's basketball five, salaged
from the wreckage that followed the
first semester examinations, stepped
into a tie with Purdue for the West-
ern Conference court title by defeat-
ing the Northwestern quintet 46-14
last night at the field house in the
final contest of the season.
In completing their spectacular
drive for championship honors, the
Wol/erines created a season's Big Ten
record by registering their fifth
straight victory, Wisconsin, Illinois,
Ohio State, and Northwestern having
been humbled following three suc-
cessive defeats, the Badgers falling
And in accounting for 46 points, the
Michigan team bettered its own rec-
ord for high score that was establish-
ed against 'the Buckeyes Saturday
night, the old mark being 44 points,
Frank Harrigan and Ed Reece each
equalled the score of the Purple five,
six field goals and two free throws
being credited to them, while Captain
Dick Doyle scored ten points, and Ed
Chambers accounted for eight.
The Wolverines initiated a scoring
spree at the outset, and once under
way, they never slackened their pace.
Ed Chambers broke away into the
clear for a short shot soon after the
whistle opened the contest, and be-
fore White counted on a one hand
sweep, Michigan was in front 11-0,
with eight minutes of play gone.
Rusch scored the only other Purple
goal of the period shortly before the
pistol fired while Michigan piled up
28 points.
The losers fared better during the
closing stanza, sending the ball
through the net four times from the
floor, and scoring two free throws,
while holding Michigan to 18 points.
Coach Mather allowed his regulars
I to stay in the contest until they had
broken the record they set Saturday
night, and then he sent Schroeder,
Rasnick and Oosterbaan into the fray
in place of Ginn, Chambers and Reece.
Doyle's one hand shot with four min-
utes remaining to play sent the Michi-
gan total over 44 points.
Frank Harrigan and Ed Reece were
the most consistent scorers of the
evening, and also played leading roles
in the defense that kept the Purple
passing the ball backwards in a fu-
tile effort to penetrate within scoring
distance. ' Ed Reece was a veritable
"ball hound" dribbling in all dire-
tions and keeping the ball in control
all the time.
Captain Dick Doyle ended his three
years of basketball competition with
one of his best games of the season.
The Wolverine leader has given a
sensational exhibition in each of the
last five games, and has been greatly
responsible for the victorious spurt
of the Mather five.
Doug Ginn, who stepped into the
breach at guard in.the first Ohio game,
also finished his career in a Michi-
gan uniform, this being his second
