With the verification of the confes-

for for the Butterfield theaters of Ann
Arbor, and Alexander P. Strauss,
leader of the Majestic orchestra, who
were arrested in connection with the
robbery of the Majestic, theater March
8, the final phases of the mystery were1
cleared up yesterday. Thomas O'Brien,
chief of police, and Sgt. Frank Keihl,
returned from Detroit last night with
$2,300, of the $4,300 loot, which had.
been deposited in the Dime Savings
bank of that city by' Strauss and his
wife shortly after the robbery.
A formal complaint will be filed
against MeHenry, and Mr. and Mrs.
Strauss this morning,,according to
Chief O'B~rien. Attorney A. J. Sawyer
will represent the Butterfield inter-
ests.
131rs. Strauss Impliated
Although Ivirs. Strauss, who was al-
so implicated, has not as yet made a
written confession, Chief O'Brien, who i
returned from questioning her late'
last night, said that she was ready
and would make such a statement this I
morning. :Mr. and Mrs. Strauss were
arrested by the police Thursday night
after McHenry made a written con-1
fession of his part of the robbery and
implicated the couple. McHenry was
taken into custody after several weeks
of surveillance by Sergeant Keihl. It
was found that during the past few
days, McHenry had spent more than
$500 for jewelry, clothing and general
luxuries, every expenditure being
known by Keihl, which led ,to his ap--f
prehension and later confession. The j
police recovered $750 of the loot from
McHenry.

WASHINGTON, April 2.--Senatc
wets who are behind the drive for;
modification of the prohibition laws
today received a couple of rather
severe jolts.
rThe first came with the refusal of
the judiciary sub-committee to sun-
mon other than government officials

The second was in the form of an
administration bill tightening up thei
Volstead act as an essential to more

second lecture he described the "ac-

pointed out are the chief function of
this body. In the lecture yesterday
he concluded the discussion of the
subject of construction of rates.
Mr. Ryall explained that the matter
of construction of rates was a very
complicated procedure. "In this com-
putation," he stated, "such elements
as the amount of necessary gross in-
conme, the determination of gross in-
come, and their constitutents must be
considered."
The subject Mr. Ryall discussed is
a "comparatively new one, no definite
courses, specifically dealing with it

Former Editeor Of Atlantic Monthly
Explains Qualities Of "Born"
Teacher By Examples
Personal reminiscences of "born
teachers" whom he had known com-
prised the lecture of Prof. Bliss Perry
of ?'arvard university at the Univer-
sity convocation yesterday morning, at
which the delegates to the Michigan
Schoolmasters' club convention were
guests. Stating that the art of teach-
ing does not depend on such external
factors as professional rank, appara-
tus, or size of classes, Professor Perry
outlined the qualities of the "ethical
mind" type, the "dynamic type.'' the
"erudite group," and the French lec-
turers who excel in a clear, easily
understood, style of expression.
The rank of teachers has nothing to
do with teaching ability, Professor
Perry said, as often instructors of
lower rank have the rare art of teach-
ing, while many prfoessors do not.
Quotes Lous Agassiz
The speaker quoted Louis Agassiz,
saying that the real teacher should
be able not only to write a specialized

YOUTH WILL BEGIN REVIVAL IN
LIBERAL IDEALS OF
CHRISTIANITY
SHOWS STATISTICS
Figures Present Ratio Of Scientific
Achievement To Broadmindedness
Of Religious Sects
Indicating that he believes that uni-
versity students have already lit "the
torch of spiritual exploration," Presi-
dent Clarence Cook Little asserted Pi
an address before the Michigan
Schoolmasters' club last night in Hill
auditorium that youth is "on the verge
of a great spontaneous reformation
leading toward more liberal and less
dogmatic views on Christianity."
In speaking of the "lamentably dan-
gerous position of Christianity today,"
President Little referred to a recent
book, "The Religion of Yesterday ant
Today," written by Dr. Kirsopp Lake,
of Harvard university, who recently
spoke here as a lecturer in the Michi-
gall School of Reigion.
"Dividiing present day Christians
into three groups-the fundamental-
ists, the institutionalists, and the ex-
perimentalists-in order of increasing
liberality," said President Little, "Dr.
Lake's general contention is. that
among the fundamentalists the appeal
is chiefly to the intellect."
Leadership Amd Liberality
In support of this contention, Presi-
dent Little hinted that intellectual
leadership is also correlated with lib-
erality of religious beliefs and pro-
sented statistics which he had pre-
pared showing that persons belonging
to certain denominations occur more
or less frequently in "Who's Who In
America" according to the liberality
of their creed.
Using three letters of the alphsbet,
A, M, and W, four groups were tbu-
fated, the medcal men, scientists,
authors or writers, and lawyers. The
results, calculated on, a percentage
basis, were compared with the per-
cntages of the various religious de-
nominations as shown-in the World's
Almanac of 1925" and for the whole
population of the United States.
President Little then attempted to
show by comparing these two propor-
tions whether those of a certain de-
nomination occurred more or less fre-
quently than would be expected con-
sidering the size of the religious or-
ganization.
Unitarians Head List
"Unitarians," lie. asserted, "occur
more than 28 times as frequently as
one would expect, Episcopalians 10.1
times, Congregationalists 5.8, Uriver-
salists 5.5, and Presbyterians 3.5. In
marked contrast with these are three
churches, two of which are more or
less rent by fundamentalist-modernist
controversy and one of which is al-
most wholly fundamentalist. .These
occur as follows: Methodist, about
three-fifths as many as are expected;
Baptists a little more thani two-fifths;
and Catholics between one-quarter
and one-fifth.
"The difference between the denomi-
nations apparently is greater among
the scientists than among the lawyers
-an interesting fact when one cony
siders that science continually looks
for new truths while law has for its
chief duty the maintenance of the
existing order. Thus; among the, sci-
entists, the Unitarians are 70 times as
numerous as expected and the Con-
gregationalists are 9.4 times as plen-
tiful, while Baptists are about one-
fourth as plentiful and Catholics one-
fiftieth as their occurence in the gen-
eral population would indicate they
should be.
"I do not wish to attempt to do
more than to state facts based on a
very preliminary study," President
Little added. "These findings should
not be taken personally by any one
