for curbling the menace of airplanes

principal business of the meeting.
The decision regarding the studentl
use of automobiles was embodied in
a statement which read: "The Board
of Regents is always glad to receive

from the student body. With respect
to the present regulation concerning

To Inquire Into Law
It was moved that the council of
the Regents consisting of two mem-
bers of the board be instructed to in-
quire into the existing laws, both
federal and state, as regards the pre-
vention of the flying of planes orl
other aircraft over the new stadium
or University property. It is thought
by the Board that as much good can,
be accomplished by the publication
of these findings and their portentions
as could be done by any sort of pro-
ceedings at law against the' offenders.
This motion was caused by the action
of one plane in particularly that

completion of the building in 1918
that the Union has showed any profit.
The period covered in the report is
from Sept. 1, 1926 to Aug. 31, 1927.
It was suggested by Regent James 0.

The budget for the operation of the

Virgilio Lazzari To Appear In Place
Of Rimini Tonight In Recital
In Hill Auditorium
As the first number of the Extra
Concert series sponsored by the Uni-
versity Choral union, Rosa Raisa and
Virgilio Lazzari will appear at 8
o'clock tonight in Hill auditorium in
a joint recital.
The program that has been an-
nounced will include several operatic
arias in solo form by each of the ar-
tists, and many duets to be rendered
together. Piano accompaniment will
he by Guglielmo Soma. Among the
outstanding numbers of the program
are the arias "Ernani Involami" from
Verdi's Ernani, and "Rituora Vinci-
tr" from Aida by the same composer,
which will be sung by Raisa; Bizet's
"Toreador Song" by Lazzari; and the
(duet from Doizetti's "Don Pasquale,"
[and the duet from Mozart's "The Mag-
ic Flute," by the two singers.
Raisa is a dramatic soprano and
the wife of Giacomo Rimini, baritone
of the Chicago Civic Opera company,
who was scheduled to sing here to-
night, but whose engagement was
cancelled because of ill health. She
will be making her first appearance
in Ann Arbor tonight. Raisa is a
native of Russian Poland, where she
led a stormy youth in order to gain
a musical education. She escaped
from the pogrom that led to a mas-
sacre in Kiev, and made her way to
Italy, where she studied and appeared
in public recitals. It was at one of
these latter where she was discovered
by the conductor Campanini and
forthwith engaged for the Chicago
Civic Opera company. She is spoken
of by critics as a dominating figure
due to her artistry and personality.
Lazzari is a b'asso and is also a
member of the Chicago organization.
He will fill the place of Rimini on
the program. Lazzari is the leading
basso of the company and is said to
be an excellent actor as well as a
singer. He has an exceptionally wide
range of roles.
Raisa has more than 25 operatic
roles in her repertoire, and these will
make up in part the program for to-
Single admissions for the concert
tonight are available at the offices of
the University School of Music on
Maynard street; otherwise admission
will be to the subscribers to the series.

Charge Bonds Were Used To Pay Off
Private Obligations Of Fall,
Eberhart And Tresricos
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 27.-Flat re-
fusal to reveal the source of $230,500
in Liberty bonds, which bulk so large
in the Teapot Dome conspiracy trial,
was made today in the District of
Columbia Supreme court by the man
the government contends had furnish-
ed that information.
He is M. T. Eberhart, Pueblo, Colo.,
banker and son-in-law of Albert B.
Fall, who after a visit to New York,
Washington and other eastern points,
returned to his home town with that
amount of bonds, which went into the
lock bank held in the First National
Bank of Pueblo in Fall's name.
Before Eberhart was called to the
stand, the government had presented
to the jury evidence to show that the
bonds were used to pay of f debts of
Fall, Eberhartsand Fall's Cresrito
Cattle and Land company. The bonds
were received by Eberhart after the
lease of Teapot Dome Naval oil re-
serves to Harry F. Sinclair by the for-
mner interior secretary.
Claims Rights
As was the case when he was called
in the Teapot Dome civil suit at
Cheyenne, Eberhart based his refusal
to answer on his constitutional rights,
contending that such testimony might
tend to incriminate him and lead to
his indictment on the very same
charge that Sinclair had made.
Justice Siddons will determine later
probably tomorrow, whether Eberhart
will be required to tell from whom
lie received the bonds. The govern-
ment contends that Harry F. Sinclair
gave the bonds to Fall as a part, at
least, of the consideration of the lease
of Wyoming Naval reserves.
Patently nervous and extremely ill
at ease, Eberhart was a reluctant wit-
ness from the first, and at one point
appeared on the verge of going to jail
for his refusal to answer a previous
question as to whether he had met
Sinclair prior to Feb. 1, 1922.
Justice Siddons directed him to an-
"I decline to answer," Eberhart re-
Douglas Asks To Advise
Charles A. Douglas, a Washington
attorney, appeared then for Eberhart
and asked permission to advise the
witness. Justice Siddons refused, re-
marking that he had advised Eberhart.
The witness then asked the ste-
nographer to repeat the question and
finally answered in the affirmative.
That eased the tension for a moment,.
but Eberhart later refused to answer
another question and Justice Siddons+
directed him to do so.
Before coming to the source of the
Liberty bonds, Owen J. Roberts, of
special government counsel, carefully1
laid the groundwork for that question
by dragging from the witness the ad-
mission that he had not had business
transactions with Sinclair; that he;
never had been employed by the gov-
ernment, and that he had nothing to
do with the negotiations for the lease
of' Teapot Dome and did not know it
had been leased until more than a
month after the lease had been execut-
ed on April 7, 1922. .
Besides being Fall's son-in-law,
Eberhart was general manager of

Tresricos Cattle and Land company
at the time.

Repor ts of r alroad and football
ticket sales indicate that several hun-
dred of the student body intend to go
to the Michigan - Illinois game to-
morrow at Champaign. The railroad
officials in charge of the sale of
tickets for the special trains that
leave Ann Arbor for Champaign to-
night announce an unusually heavy
demand for tikets. Harry A. Tillot-
son, business manager of the Ath-
letic association, reports that more
than 4,500 tickets have been sold for
the game, and that many of them have
been purchased by students.
The specialatrain that leaves here
today will grant stop-over privileges
in Chicago for a small additional cost.
The train will return to Ann Arbor
on Sunday.
A telegram was received yesterday.
by Courtland C. Smith, president of
the Student council, from H. G. Marsh-
all, representing the Illinois Student
council, inviting the Michigan stu-
dents to inspect and enjoy the Illi-
nois campus. The text of the tele-
graim follows :,
"The Student council of the Uni-
versity of Illinois in behalf of the stu-
dent body of the University cordially

of Michigan to visit the Illinois cam-
pus when in Urbana for the Michigan-

discussion of the success of a com-

Scholarship Record In 2 Year Course
To Be Basis For Admission To
All Professional Shools
A committee of 60 faculty members,
to be called the General Committee on
the University College, has been ap-
pointed by President Clarence Cook
Little according to an announcement
issued yesterday from the office of the
President. The coimittee, which
was chosen by President Little after
a conference with the deans of the
various schools and colleges of the
University, represents every branch
of the University, and will meet at
least once a week from now until
the final plans for the University col-
lege are made.
This committee will take up te
work of the University college where
the deans and the University Senate
left it last. spring, after making th
recommendation that such a project
be instituted in the Ulversity here.
The members of this committee are
from the faculties of the various
schools and colleges of the University,
since the deans were represented on
the original "body that made tie first
set of recommendations last spring.
President Little will preside as chair-
man of this group, and by using both
the organization of the deans which
already exists and the new genera
committee as parallel organizations It
is hoped that the work will proceed
rapidly and with double consideration.
Smith Is Secretary
Ira Smith, will serve as secretary of
the committee appointed yesterday,
and a vice-chairman will probably be
chosen at thegir first meeting. Pres-
dent Little hopes that by making rea-
sonable progress from now until the
end *,f the school year the Univer-
sity college may be made a reality
next fall.
The University college project,
which is somewhat new in the educa-
tional field, will provide that all new
students, 'upon enrollment, will enters
the University college rather than in
any branch of the 'University. T-his
course will regularly last for two
years, at the end of which time a
comprehensive examinaton will be
given every student.
On the basis of this examinatio.,
certain students will be dropped from
the University, receiving at the tim
a certificate of some kind which wil
parallel a junior college certificate
at present. This elimination will
not ,be in the nature of a discredit,
since it will merely meana thatthe
University authorities consider that
particular student unfit-for the fur-
therpursuit of any of te professional-
curricula. It will be granted to ..a),
those who successfully complete the
first two years of University training.
Some May :Continue
At the end of these two years those
desiring to continue in the profession-
al schoolstand colleges may do so
providing their showing through the
early period has been satisfactory.
Though their earlier choice of courses
in the University college may have been
in some measure a preparation for
a professional' course, they will in
no respectsbe enrolled in a profes-
sional school until after having suc-
cessfully completed the work of the
first two years.

Those who are thus admitted to the
'various professional schools of law,
engineering, medlInnl, pharmacy, ed-
ucation, business administration, and
others will be chosen on tne basis
of their showing during the two year
period in the. University college.
It is proposed also, to make the
professional schools more nearly sim-
ilar in the length of their course, and
the tentative time proposed by the
the committee last year was thlem
years in addition to th two spent in
the University colltge. This would,
in effect, shorten some courses su-Ii
as law and medicine while others,
such as engineering, would be length-
ened. This arrangement is not findl
or definite and Will be considered
carefully by the committee nbw at
special attention will be paid dur-
ing the first two years of the curricu-
lum in the University college to the
ineeds of the individual student, and
it is planned to choose faculty mem-
hers for their willingness to become
personally intimate with the students
