'Ambulance Chasing' to
Law Curriculum.
All the news of the law school
and the Lawyers' club, the news
which cannot be published in other
papers, was divulged to the public

loid, which is published each year

Kenneth Stone, '31L, is the editor
of this year's edition.
Under the banner headline,
"Quasi Lawyers Give Party," the
leading article described completely
the dance itself. One detail in par-
ticular in the decorative scheme is
enlarged upon, although, the arti-
cle explains, it was "discarded. at
the last moment." This was a floral
decoration in deep lavender and
black, hung with black crepe and

slogan, "Try and get a job, you

year before the Liquor Raids, the

ger of Seville announced that Equi-

Warrant issued by Justice Fry to
Prince Florsheim." The article

The Raw Review also announces
the addition of a new course to the
Law school curriculum. The addi-
tion will be a "Seminar in Ambu-
lance Chasing in Village and Me-
tropolis," and, the article states,
"Special attention will be given to
creating legal situations justifying
big fees, mulcting the widows and
orphans, and the more subtle forms
of legal advertising."
The other articles in the paper
cover almost all the phases of life
in the Lawyers' club and include
sorties about an English barrister's
impressions of the club and an ex-
planation of the "racket on case
books." Thumbnail sketches of
courses and well-known persons
and a number of "Classified Ad-
tisements," two of which concern
the whereabouts of a pair of binoc-

All attempts on the part of social fraternifies to make them-
selves tax exempt will be completely thwarted, if a proposed bill,
introduced by Phillip C. Pack, Washtenaw county representative
and publicity director for the Athletic association of the University,
is passed by the legislature. The measure is now in the hands of
the committee on state affairs.
"The proposed bill is designed to keep fraternities from remov-

yesterday concerning the pro-

Suggests Tobacco Tax as Means
of Alleviating Property
Owners Burden.
LANSING, Mar. 27.--(P)-State
educational leaders attending the
ninth annual departmental con-.
ference of the Michigan Education
association today urged the pas-
sage of some form of special tax to
relieve the general property burden
In a resolution the association
suggested a tobacco tax as a mean:
of relieving 'the burden now placed
on property owners. Revenues from
a special tax, the resolution 'said,
should be used for equalizationhof
school costs, for handicapped chil-
dren, county normals, agricultural
and vocational aid, and for an ade-
quate teachers retirement fund. The
association is comprised of a mem-
bership of 32,500 from the teach-
ing profession of the state.
The association expressed opposi-
tion to any reductions in teacher's
salaries and to any legislation de-
signed to place control, of local
school finances in the hands of
state agencies.
