size. Portraits will be made without cost to any Faculty member or
officer by Messrs. J. F. Rentschler and Son. Members of the Faculty
are cordially invited to make appointments with Rentschler and Son
for the purpose. Any special questions arising with respect to the
matter may be asked either of the Secretary of the University, Mr.
Shirley W. Smith, or of the Librarian, Mr. William W. Bishop.

NEW YORK, Jan. 15.-The stock
market broke out of its narrow
trading area on the downside today.
The extreme stagnation of the
market in the previous session as it
endeavored to break away from the
downward trend of Monday and
Tuesday, encouraged fresh selling
and trading quickened moderately
Isolated strength of some of the
rails bolstered the list a little in the
late morning, but the decline be-
came emphatic after midday and;
losses of 2 to 5 points were numer-
ous. Expectations of the Richfield
Oil receivership, announced in the
earlyafternoon, was an unsettling
Shares losing 3 to 5 points in-
cluded American and Foreign
Power, Coca Cola, Air Reduction,

lied Chemical and Lambert. Issues

point, going below 140 for the first)
time since December, Richfield Oil
broke more than a point in the
early trading to go below 3, or
more than 25 under its 1930 high,
and the 6per cent bonds lost 13 1-2
points. Other oils were heavy. t
The action of the share market
was contrary to that of the bond
list, which picked up under the in-
fluence of further easing of credit
rates. Time money again sagged
with the longer maturities down to
the lowest levels of half a century
or more. Call money held at 1 1-2
at the loan desk, with virtually no
demand. There was a brisk invest-
ment demand for commercial pa-
per, and lower rates were regarded
as probable.

Detroit Leaders Honor
Densmore at Banquet
A group of Detroit men and wo-
men, including leaders in the bus-

honored Prof. G. E. Densmore, of
the speech department, who has
taught them in a University exten-
sion course for the last semester, at
a banquet in the Hotel Statler.
Henry Moser, of the speech depart-
ment, was a guest.
Under the pretense of "evenging"
themselves upon their instructor,
each student gave an after-dinner
speech. One of the students acted
as toastmaster. "Gravestones" were
used as place-cards, and an obitu-
ary poem was read to introduce
each speaker.

Dry Officers Charge Operation
of International Drug
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Jan. 15.-A mailor-
der liquor ring that shipped its
wares C. 0. D. to all parts of the
nation and an international nar-
cotics syndicate that used the
trans-Atlantic telephone to direct
its smuggling were under investiga-
tion by federal authorities today.
Federal agents arrested two men
and a woman in a Times Square of-
fice building and seized records
which they said showed the ring
netted millions annually by supply-
ing customers throughout the coun-
try, particularly in Texas, Washing-
ton, Maine and Illinois.
Under successive names of the 13
& o. Novelty Co., Henry Miller Co.,
and Southern Agency, the agents
said, the principals have solicited
trade for three years from a mail-
ing list of more than a thousand
customers and filled their orders by
express or freight, billing shipments
as general merchandise.
Daniel M. Lefkowitz, Benjamin
Williams and Pauline Paris, alias
Weiss, were held on charges of
maintaining a nuisance.

closed by Assistant United States
Attorney Henry Gerson on the basis
