IH Plan Not Yet Formulated; May
Necessitate Amendment
to City Charter.-
Unless it embraces the entire
community instead of just the mu-
of nicipality, the proposed municipal
court, to replace the justice courts
of Ann Arbor, will be a palliative
rather than a cure for crime con-
ditions, Prof. Edson R. Sunderland,
D of the Law school, said in an inter-
view yesterday.
"Inasmuch as the details of the l
ose plan have not been formulated yet,"
said Professor Sunderland, "it is!
impossible to determine how far
such a court would go in relieving'
present conditions. There is no
on, question that something should be
ct- done to correct the present system
ec- and its evils, and the proposed,
of court, if given broad enough scope, f
m- would do much to accomplish this.!
to "Just as any successful educa-
. tional system must consider the
s rural districts as well as the urban,
>is so the successful court should em-,
-or brace the entire community and al-
on low its benefits to fall upon alli
on alike, whether they live within the
corporate limits of the city or with-
rill out."
th In an interview yesterday Mayor
or H. Wirt Newkirk said that he is in
rfavor of the proposed municipal
r court since it will take the city law
business out of the hands of the
s present two justices of peace and
ve concentrate it in the person of one
ls Judge. Also it is much more digni-
1s fled for this business to be trans-

acted in a regular court room than
in the offices of the justices.
The establishment of the muni-
cipal court was a plank in Mayor
Newkirk's election platform, and he
is very anxious that it become a
reality instead of merely a proposed
issue. He said that all large cities
have municipal courts instead of
justices and the former has proved
much more satisfactory.
It will be necessary to amend the
city charter to make this change.
The approval of Ann Arbor resi-
dents is required before the charter
can be amended, and if council de-
cides that this change is for the
best, it will be submitted to the
people in the near future.

heny, wealthy oil man.
. The tribunal is expected to con-
sider the petition from the former
interior secretary before ;it ad-
journs for the summer recess nekt
Monday. The petition asks a re-
versal of the District of Columbia
court of appeals decision affirming
the conviction and sentence of a
year's imprisonment and a $100,-
000 fine. 3 gg
Should the court decline to re-
view the decision, Fall would be
summoned to Washington to re-
ceive sentence and commitment to
prison. ih,
The petition challenged the val-'
idity of the indictment, activities of
government counsel, and the dis-
charge of a woman juror. It also
assailed the admissability of evi-
dence pertaining to negotiations be-
tween Fall and Harry F. Sinclair,'

Decisio' on Enforcement to Be
Made as Individual Case
Will Warrant.
Planning to permit the use of
automobiles for recreational pur-
poses to all Summer Session stu-
dents this year, Waltei B. Rea, as-
sistant to the dean of students, yes-
terday stated that the program for
enforcement of the ban during the
summer had been completed.
Rea indicated, that the ban would
'be enforced during the summer ac-
cording to the merits of individual
cases, rather than according to any
blanket r'egulation to be applied to
all. All studentsover 30 years of
age,. and. any, professional. persons
Who have not been in attendance
at any university during the past
year will be exempt from the rul-
ing, Rea said.
Regarding the enforcement of
an .during examination time, Ra
indicated, that,. the ruling would
nlot be applicable to students who
have completed all their University
Work for the year, including exam-
inations, theses, and class papers.
He said:
"As stated in the Daily Official
Bulletin, students will" be permitted
to drive cars as soon as they have
completely finished their work in
all of their University courses.
Those who finish their work,at an
early date will not be required, as
in previous years, to refrain from
using automobiles until the major-
ity of students have finished their
examinations, and the ruling has
been definitely lifted. This will
make the lifting of the Automobile
regulation an individual arrange-
ment which should, as an experi-
ment, merit and receive the fullest
amount of student co-operation."
