Will ' Compete For University
Nat'ional Competition of
Orsamus M. Pearl, '29, is the win-
ner of the local division of New
York Times Current Events con-
test, held here last Friday, it is
bing announced today by the com-
mittee' of the University faculty
which arranged the local contest.
The winner was selected from 28
participants and is now eligible for
a $150 cash prize, and for compe-
tition in the national contest, in
which 20 colleges and universities
Second place in the contest was
awarded to Victor Rabinowitz, '31,
who is' also winner of the under-
class competition. He will receive
a $75 cash prize. Allan R. Moore,
'29Ed., winner of third honors,, will
receive a $25 cash award.
"Pearl's paper is the best written
that has been submitted at any
current events contest held at the
University. Michigan will have a
worthy representative' in the na-
tional contest," Prof. Everrett S-
Brown, of .the political science de-
partment and chairman of the
committee which sponsored the
contest locally, stated when he an-
nounced the winner.
Interest Is Increasing
"Interest in the Current Events'
contest is decidedly on the in-
crease" Prof. Brown stated. "There
were 28 participants this year as
compared with 17 last year. There
was also a superior quality of work
exhibited. An equality of entrants
btweCn the upper and lower clas-
ses of the University makes the
future outlook on such contests ever
Pearl, who comes from St. Johns,
is an .outstanding scholar on the
campus. He was elected to Phi
Beta Kappa, last year (his junior
year). During the past three years
at the University his record has
contained, outside of "A" grades,
only four "B's". Predominating in
the course of study followed by the
winner at the University, are clas.
sical subjects; 'the study of Latin
and Greek, and allied subjects.
Judges of the event wish to com-
mend the' efforts of the contestant
who registered under the number
822; but who failed to include his
name or class in' the identification
envelope. His work ranked among
the first few, and if he is an under-
classman should enter the contest
next year, according to Prof.
Members of the committee in ad-
dition to Prof. Brown, were Prof.
P. W. Slosson, of the history de-
partment, Prof. John L. Brumm, of
the journalism department, Prof
Z. C. Dickenson, of the economics
department, and Prof. Waldo Ab-
bot, of the rhetoric department.
Competition in the contest con-
sisted of identifying 25 prominent'
persons, answering 15 factual ques-
. tions of a brief nature, and 10 of a
more general nature, and writing'
~essay's of from 250 to 500 words on
five subjects selected from 15 topics
that have taken a significant as-
pect during the last nine months.
Pearl's paper will now be entered
into national competition, which'
includes 19 other universities. Most
of these institutions are located in
the east, Chicago being' the only
one west of Michigan.
Students At Indiana
Oppose Fund Drives
Students interviewed by the In-
diana Daily Student, expressed
themselves in favor of the aboli-
tion of fund drives for campus
groups. Several said that the bur-
,den of such drives falls on the or-
ganized students, often being added
to their house bill, while the unor-
ganized students have little to pay.

tended the hearings asked that
carillons be put on the free list in
order to encourage musical and
cultural advancement in commun-
ities where religious and educa-
tional bodies exist. Howard Flem-

Plainfield, N. J., in speakinglor the
removal of the tariff on cariliorns
made the point' tlat although some
bells and chimes are cast in the
United States, all carillons had tQ
be imported and that this neces-
sarily would affect many churches
and schools throughout the' coun-
S. W. Seery, of the VcShane Bell
Foundry company of Baltimore,
immediately retorted by saying that
American manufacturers could
make carillons just as well as their'
foreign competitors if they were
given a chance. He then added
that all those representatives who
were asking for tax exemption on
the'bells Were merely "an organized
band of mighty poor Americans
who were interested in creating' a*
carillon monopoly abroad."
Results of this hearing' by the'
wvays and means committee of the
house are awaited with interest
and anxiety by alumni of the Uni-
versity of Michigan who are spon-
soring the carillon campaign for
the bells to be installed in the
proposed Burton Memorial Cam-

secretary of the Alumni associa-

carillon of 48 bells will be purchas-
ed or else the same amount of
money will be expended for a caril-
lon which would be the finest in
the world; surpassing even the'
newly erected carillon in the' Bird
