Officials of the Ann Arbor Savings!
bank announced tentative plans for a
new building to be erected at the
northwest corner of Main and Huron
streets in a statement issued yester-
day afternoon by Wiliam L. Walz,j
cashier of the bank, The structure,
according to present plans, will be
from eight to ten stories high and
will include a modern hotel as well
as a bank and' office building.
Confirming reports that such a,
structure was planned, Walz stated,1
"We are contemplating the razing of
the present structure and the erection
of an up-to-date, modern, fire-proof,
bank, ofhice, and hotel building.
Preliminary sketches have been
made which make us believe that the
building will probably be eight to
ten stories in height. The bank will;
retain its present location, with con-1
Mderably larger space, having a main
banking room 60 by 100 feet, three
stories in height, with a mezzanine j
and basement. The plans also show;
about 100 office room and 120 hotel I
rooms, each equipped with bath. Walz
stated further that a number of ex-
perienced operators are desirous of
leasing the hotel. In addition, he de-
scribed the offices as planned to be+I
of the most modern type,many of
them already having been reserved.
Controlled by Bank
The building itself will be owned by
the bank organization and J. E. Beal,
owners of the present bank block oc-
cupying the site of the contemplated
building. Discussing the contemplat-
ed structure and the advantages to be
derived from it, Beal issued the fol-
lowing statement: "After Ann Arbor

f Judges Will Pick Three Designs For
Final Consideration By Entire
J-Hop Committee Personel
Decorative schemes for the class of
1929 J-Hop will again be selected by
competition ths year, according to
announcement made yesterday by Al-
fred C. Bowman '29, decoration chair-
man for the affair. Details in sub-
mitting designs will be largely the
same as in former years, and the
contest will be open to all who are
interested. Professional decorators
and art clubs are free to plan schemes
and submit them as well as students;
no connection with the University
being necessary.
Competition for the awards will
open today, according to the state-
ment,; and all designs must be in the
hands of the judges or the committee
by Saturday, Nov. 26 at the latest. No
designs submitted after the specified
date can be considered.
The judges that have been named
by the committee to act on all de-
signs are Dan Emil Lorch, Prof. Wil-
liam C. Titcomb, and Prof. Jean P.
Slusser, all of the architectural col-
lege. Three schemes from among
those submitted will be picked by the
judges, and the final awarding will be
made by the entire J-Hop committee.
The prize for the selected scheme will
be $25. Additional arrangements will
be made for the awarding of the con-
tract according to whether the win-
ner be a student or a professional
The sketches of all schemes sub-
mitted should show the colors as far
as is possible, the committee states.
They should convey a clear idea of the
whole effect as it will be carried out
in the gymnasium, where the J-Hop
will be held, as in former years.
Special emphasis is placed on the part
played in any design by the booths,
stands for the orchestra, fire exits,
running tracks and entrances. The
final requirement is to be taken into
consideration in that the whole scheme

Fall Issues Statement Declaring He
Is Ready For Nen Trial
To Begin Anytime
(iy Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 2.-Another
startling chapter in the dramatic
story of the naval oil leases was
closed today with the declaration of
the mistrial in the hearingof criminal
conspiracy cTarges aainst two of the
fart actorsae in the lngdrama'
Albert T. Fall and larry F. Sinclair.
A grand jury will write new history
in its investigation of charges of jury
pandering before the former interior
secretary and the muiltl-millionaire
oil- operator and sportsman come to
the bar of justice again for a new trial,
probably in January.
Youth Figures In Case.
Meantime these principals in the
celebrated case have been crowded
completely out of th spotlight by a
hitherto unnoticed young leather-
worker, who probably has never
seen his name in print before this
trial. He is Edward J. Kidwell, juror
number 11.
For fleeting minutes Juror Kidwell
this morning sat in the juror's box,
pale-faced andstrembling,rthe'center
of a thousand eyes, waiting whatever
fate may be in store as a result of
charges that he had talked freely
about the case against the orders of
the Court, and he said he expected to
have an automobile "as long as a
Newspaper correspondents swarmed
about Kidwell as he sought to leave
the court-room and followed him for
a block before he would break his
silence. Then hehemphatically denied
the statement attributed to him by J.
Ray Akers, a street car conductor, and
Donald T. King, a newspaper report-
Taken To Courthouse.
Still visibly agitated, the young
juror finally broke away from his in-
terrogators, only to run into two
deputy marshalls, who served upon
him a subpoena to appear before the
grand jury. He was taken back to the
Courthouse and placed in the oflce of
Neil Durkinshaw, young assistant dis-
trict attorney conducting the grand
jury inquiry.
His name was finally called and he
was told by Dukinshaw that he could
appear before the grand jury volun-
farily, and that he need not answer
any questions unless he desired, as
all the information he gave might be
used against him at some future time.
The juror gave no reply, but walked
steadily down the corridor toward the
doors behind which sat the score and
more of men composing the inquisi-
torial body. As he neared the swing-
ing screens, he hastened his step, as
though anxious to have done with this
feature of his case.
For an hour and 30 minutes he re-
mained closeted with the jury. Upon
emerging at noon he started down an
opposite corridor from that in which
the newspaper correspondents and a
crowd of curious men were waiting.
When the reporters overtook him he
still refused to talk, but said later
that he had "told the truth" to the
grand jurors and he again denied that
he had discussed the Fall-Sinclair case
with anyone.
Immediately after Kidwell emerged

from the grand jury room, A. Mason
Jay, vice president of the Sinclair Ex-
ploration Co., went in for the third
time. He was out in about 10 min-
utes and told inquirers that he had
refused to testify further, standing on
the constitutional immunity that his
testimony might help to incriminate
him. He too, agreed to return to
court tomorrow.
While the stirring events were de-
veloping at the District of Columbia
in the main cdurtroom, Albert T.
Fall issued a statement from his
apartment at the Mayflower hotel,
saying that he was ready for a re-trial
immediately, and expressing regrPt
