Governor Cha llenes Lawmakers
To Accent His Plan Or Allow
Institutions To Lapse
(By Associated Press)
LANSING, Jan. 8.-.As the lev-
islature reconvened today definite
plans were revealed in adminis-
t-ation and indeendnt circles
for legislation designed to extract
from the habitual criminal section
of the state crime code the life
sentence for liquor law offenders.
in the first fluster of bills offered
in the house was one proposed a
classification making the life pen-
alty applicable only to major
crimes, ,Simultaneously it was
learned that Governor G-een and
Wilbur Brucker have virtually
a g r e e d u p o n recommending
changes which would likewise
classify felonies and would ex-
empt from the life imprisonment
clause liquor and other offenses
not involving violence or mo al
turpitude. -
Finance Bill Submitted
By leaving provisions for improv-
ing state educational institutions
out of the appronriation bill, the
governor has challenged the leg-
islature either to accept his pro-
gram of financing or let the insti-
tutions go without improvements.
The only other pssible avenues
would lead to an administration-
anti-administration conflict or the
discovery of a new source of rev-
enue which could be substituted
for the income tax plan and would
meet with the approval of the ex-
Wants No Increases
The governor is prepared to
press for adoption of the adminis-
tration bill without increasing the
specified appropriations. They may
be cut, if the legislature wishes,
but that procedure would not pro-
vide buildings..
Should the legislature attempt to I
discard proposed income tax or
other special revenue plans and
force through regular appropria-
tion bills which would increase the
property tax, an administration
controversy undoubtedly would
arise and then measures would, in
the end, be subject to probable
Hospitals Are Asked.
Less than $3,000,000 is set aside
for buildings and imnrovements I
during the biennium. The appro-
priations for hospitals are minor
amounts which, preclude any pro-
gram of expansion. The only in-
stitutions substantially provided
for from regular revenues are-
Jackson prison, $1,400,000 to com-
plete cell blocks in the new pris-
on; Marquette prison, $20,000 for
minor improvements; Ionia re-
formatory, $335,000 to abolish the
dormitory system and install cells:
boys' vocational school, $240,000
for new buildings, and girls' train-~
ing school, $101,700 for new build-
ings and improvements.
Chicago Auditorium
To Close Doors Soon
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, Jan. 8.-The famous
old stage of the Auditorium whose
somber proscenium arch for nearly

four decades has yawned across
the orchestra pit upon a glittering
"diamond horseshoe," will echo to
opera for the last time Jan. 26.
"Romeo and Juliet" will be tliq
final opera on which the heavy
steel fire curtain will descend,
just as "Romeo and Juliet" . was
chosen to open the theater to
opera 39 years ago.
The 1929-30 season of the Chi-
cago Civic Opera company will be
given in the company's new the-
ater, now under construction.

Gargoyle's January number, a1
burlesqque of Collier's weekly,
will go on sale on campus tomor-
row morning. This issue, it is
claimed, promises to surpass any-
thing yet attempted by the hu-
mor magazine staff and should
prove an even greater success than
the Liberty take-off of a year ago.
From cover to cover, every fea-
ture has been the object of hu-j
morous parody. Stories, articles,
and advertisements have all been
burlesqued in a matter that prom-
ises to mark the,, issue as more
distinctive and humorous than
anything previously presented by
The cover by Jerry Ellison, '30,
is the first feature in the decep-
tion. "Fighting Word" by "Lardy
Pork Eskeen" is the first story, a
parody on the popular yarn by
Larry York Erskine written by
Gurney Williams, '31.
- "The Sleephard of Cantaloupe"
by "Sane Bray" and "Master of
Sinister Souse" by "Eclips Sloppen-
hem" are the two other stories.
Among the articles is one by

Jennings McBride Is Delegated To
Assist In Entertainment Of
Foreign Students
At a regular meeting of the Stu-
dent Council held last night at the
Union, Robert' Warren, '29, was
chosen president pro-tempore of
the Council during the absence of
Paul J Kern, '29, who will be in-
eligible to assume the duties of the
office until the opening of the sec-
ond semester due to a violation of
the auto ban.
Warren, who holds the office of{
vice-president of the organization,
was unanimously ciosen to serve in1
the temporary office after the
council had decided that an elec-
tion to the post should be held. The
matter caused considerable discus-
sion, since there was no precedent
for the situation and the consti-
tution of the council is silent on the
means of filling such vacancy. It
was finally moved and carried that
an election should be held rather
than an automatic succession to
fill the office until February 11,
though the result, through the
unanimous election of Warren, was
the same. Warren will assume
through the interim the important
committee posts on the Senate
Committee on Student Affairs and
the disciplinary committee. ,
Other business accomplished by
the council was limited to the ap-
pointment of Jennings McBride, '30,
to make arangements for the en-
tertainment of 13 male members
of a party of students from the
Union of South Africa who are
visiting this country as guests ofI
the National (Student Federation
of America. General arrangements
for the party, which will arrive in
Ann Arbor on Jan. 19, are in charge
of Carleton Wells, and McBride
will arange to lunch the party
Saturday noon at fraternity houses.
Councilman John Gilmartin, '29E,
postponed his official report on the
convention of the National Student
Federation held at Columbia, Mo.,
last month.
