Extreme declines in active issue:
ranged from $10 to $70, but many
of these were cut in half in the
rally which started in mid-after-

blocks of 10,000 to 80,000 shares

whatever price they would bring.
When this initial flood of selling
had spent itself, supporting orders
began to make their appearance,
not with the intention of complete-

but with the avowed object of
regulating their flow.
Several times during the day,
particularly in the early afternoon

Austin Receives First Prize in
Competition; Blaser
Takes Second.
Author and Characteristics of
Book to be Revealed in
Few Weeks.
Winners in the poster contest for
"Merrie-Go-Round," the 1929 Union
Opera were announced yesterday
by E. Mortimer Shuter, director and
Paul Buckley, manager of the
Phillip Austin, '32, was awarded
first prize in the contest and Lee
Blaser, '31, received the second
award. Austin's design embodies a
huge moon which silhouettes trop-
ical palm trees. In the foreground
is a soldier kneeling and a Spanish
girl is dancing toward him. The let-
tering on the design, according to
Shuter, was one of the * factors
which contributed to the choice of
the poster. This design has been
sent t the engraver in Detroit and
copies will be used in all out of
towns and local publicity.
Winner to Receive Medal.
First and second prizes 4in the
contest are to be a gold and a silver
medallion, suitably engraved. If
the winners choose, Shuter ex-
plained, they may take the prize in
'cash instead of the medals.
Commenting on the work of the
choruses, Shuter announced the
assitance of Roy Hoyer for the
speciality and choius work. Hoyer
is playing in "Pleasure Bound"
which opened in Detroit this week,
and he will commute between Ann
Arbor and the theatre after the re-
hearsal each afternoon. Hoyer,
who has had the score of the Opera
for several weeks, will start work
with the chorus Monday afternoon
and will continue the training u
til approximately a week beforeth
show opens in Ain Arbor, Decem-
ber 12.
Hoyer May Bring New Steps.
This is the tenth year, according
to Shuter, that Hoyer has been
with the prospective chorus of the
Opera. Several years ago he was
made an . honorary member of
Mimes. This year,,'he has hinted in
communications to Shuter, he has
some new routine steps for the
show. They are the style of dancing
that Jack Donahue, the B3roaudway
comedian, has displayed in his last
few starring productions.

Rr. John Roach Straton
Noted champion of fundamental-
ism, who died yesterday at the age
of 54 years, after an illness of
several months.
Long Confinement to Sanitarium
Ends in Death for Noted
Baptist Preacher.
(By Associated Press)
29.-The Reverend John 'Roach
Straton, one of the world's out-
standing champions of fundament-
alism, died here today of a heart
attack, at the age of 54.
Dr. Straton, who was pastor of
Calvary Baptist church in New
York, became famous for his sup-
port of William Jennings Bryan at
the Scopes trial in Dayton, Ten-
nessee in 1925, and for his debate
with William A. Brady, Broadway
producer, and others, had been
critically ill with a nervous break-
down at a sanitarium here for more
"than a month. The breakdown
came as he was believed to have
recovered fron a slight paralytic
stroke he suffered last April.
Dr. Straton was for years the
militant foe of Darwinism, agnos-
ticism, and in many instances the
modern stage and many other fea-
tures of the world today. Two years
ago, he became deeply interested
in divine healing and conducted a
number of services with that end
in view. His ideas and his activi-
ties frequently brought him into
conflict with his parishioners. '
He is survived by his wife, who
was at his bedside when he died,
and four friends, the Reverend Hil-
yer H. Straton, John Charles.
