AL CAPONE HELD
AS COUNTY GUEST
CHICAGO, Oct. 26.--()-Al Ca-
pone has settled down for what
may be a long stay in the county
jail, and apparently much more
content to remain there than to
leave for a federal penitentiary.
A ruling on the scarfaced gang
chief's request to be free on bond
while his income pax conviction is
appealed to the higher courts is
due at 2 p. m. (3 p. m.) today from
the circuit court of appeals. The
court may either order him freed,
sent to Leavenworth or held in his
present quarters.
United States marshals were
ready to leave with Capone tonight
for Leavenworth, but they have
been twice before, only to have
their plans frustrated by court or-
ders to hold him in Chicago. The
first occasion was immediately af-
ter his sentence Saturday to 11
years imprisonment and $50,000 in
fines; the second when the appeals
court granted a 24-hour delay Mon-
day.
Defense attorneys argued before
the appeals body that the indict-
ment on which the gangster was
convicted was faulty,

TOY RECOMMEND-S
D1IIiON OF PRIZES!
To Give Rewards for Furnishing
Evidence of Torch
Murderers.
DETROIT, Oct. 27.-(P)--Prose-
cutor Harry S. Toy today recom-
mended that the rewards offered by
the county board of auditors and
two Detroit newspapers for infor-
mation leading to the arrest of the
slayers in the Washtenaw county
torch murders of last August be,
given to the chief of the Ypsilanti
police and two other residents of
that city.
The rewards total $5,000.
The auditors offered rewards of
000 in all. The two Detroit news-
000in all. The two Detroit news-
papers offered $1,000 each.
Mr. Toy has recommended that
two-fifths, or $2,000 each be given
George Nelms and Frank Johnson
of Ypsilanti, and $1,000, or one-
fifth, to Ralph Southard, Ypsilanti
chief of police.
George Nelms and Frank John-
son, Ypsilanti men recommended
for rewards in the solving of the
quadruple pyre slaying last August
were Negro acquaintances of David
Blackstone, one of the slayers.
Johnson had "a vision" in which
he saw "three men doing the mur-
ders." He later saw Blackstone and
sought to discuss the "vision" and
the slayings with him. He said
Blackstone trembled and Johnson's
suspicions were aroused. He then
told Chief of Police Southard he'
suspected Blackstone.1
Nelms was responsible for turn-
ing Blackstone's revolver over to+
Mr. Southard. Blackstone gave it to+
Nelms after the slaying with the
remark that "I don't need it now."+

Ann Arbor Citizens
to Collect Clothes
as Relief Measure
Ann Arbor citizens again will be
called upon this fall to donate some
clothing for distribution to the
needy of the city this winter, it was
announced today by the mayor's
committee on unemployment, which
will serve as the collecting agency.
Such clothing as can be spared
for the use of "those individuals
in the community, who because of
unemployment, are unable to clothe
themselves," will be solicited by the
committee which points out that
the contribution of clothes is "not
only charity, but also a spirit of
common neighborliness, which, it is
hoped, will lead the people of thi:
city to give generously to the cause
of those who are needy."
Done Last Winter.
"Last Winter the request of the
mayor's unemployment committee
for clothing was generously answer-
ed by all Ann Arbor, and we hope
that the response this year will be
equally generous," members -of the
committee said. "This winter will
be one of no luxuries and few com-
forts for many people. This is the
time when the entire nation is in a
situation which somewhat approxi-
mates disaster for many struggling
families. It is for this reason that
the mayor and this committee urge
every individual to search out and
prepare those articles of clothing
which are available for distribution
to the needy."
Collection of clothing this year
will take place at different times
for different wards, according to
the present plan of the committee.
This method will be used in order
that the clothing may be distributed
as fast as it comes in. All types of
clothing are needed and will be ac-
cepted, the committee making the
special request that all clothing be
clean if possible.

COLLECTION OF GERMAN CURRENCY
IS LATEST ADDITION TO MUSEUM

.Bills Display Pictorial Art,'
Says Miss Thompson,
Curator.
German pre-war and post-war
currency constitute the latest ad-
dition to thte University museums'
exhibits.
The collection was the gift of
Gottlob Schumacher, of Ann Arbor,
and is under ttL supervision of
Miss Crystal Thompson, curator of
the department of visual education.
Many of the bills displayed are
post-war currency printed by Ger-
man city banks, and have absolute-
ly no monetary value at present.
They are, Miss Thompson says
"wonderful pieces of art, and look
more like beautiful pictures on
Christmas cards than pieces of
money."
Bills from Freudenstadt, a city
in Germany, afford the most strik-
ing example of this. Five bills, all
printed in 1922, show various phas-
es of the city's history and layout.
One shows a picture of the Black
Forest and also how it looks in win-
ter, on its respective sides.
Another has views of the Freu-
denstadt city hall and fountain,
done in green and black inks. A
third shows two figures examining
a layout of the city itself and on
the back a view of the market
place.
The city church, in which men
and women are separated, and the
city treasury, comprise the fourth.
The portrait of Conrad Schott, who
built the organ for the city church,
and the church itself, make up the
decoration of the fifth bill.
The post-war currency ranging
in value from. 100;000 to 5,000,000
marks. One bill issued by the
Reichsbank was first issued at 1,006
marks, recalled and raised to a
million marks, this due to the in-
crease in its monetary value.
A tax imposed upon patrons of
cafes and cabarets after regular
hours also is displayed.

Among the coins may be seen a
10 penny piece, the only coin mint-
ed in or before 1924 still in use.
Such cities as Stuttardt, Hansea-
tic, and Freudenstadt put out these
bills.

EUGENE O'NEILL'S TRILOGY GIVEN
INITIAL PERFORMANCE IN NEW YORK

Earle Larrimore, Nazimova, and
Alice Brady Star in 14
Act Play.
NEW YORK, Oct. 27.-(AP)-Eu-
gene O'Neill, like some Gutzon
Borglum carving a giant drama
from the cold stone of an ancient
Greek tragedy, had created today
in "Mourning Becomes Electra"
what critics generally called his
masterpiece.
The dramatist's 14-act, three-in-
one opus was gi gi its premier
Monday. The curtain rose on the
first of the three consecutive dra-
mas, "The Homecoming," at 4 p.
in. At the conclusion of "The
Homecoming" at 6 p. in. there was
a dinner intermission, following
which the other dramas, "The
Hunted" and "The Haunted," were
played. The performance ran past
11 o'clock.
O'Neil has based the mood of
this new drama upon the Greek
tragedy. "Electra," and one feels
the unalterable doom of death
throughout the performance.
Alice Brady, Alla Nazimova and-
Earle Larimore won long ovations
from the first night audibnce for
their performances. Miss Brady is
the only member of the cast who
appears in every act of the play.
All critics praised her performance
as the greatest in her long career.
The scene of "Mourning Becomes
Electra" is placed in a New' Eng-
land seacoast village. The Mannon
family overshadows the town, and
itself is overshadowed by death.
Gen. Mannon returns home from

the Civil war to be greeted by a
betraying wife, who climaxes her
hatred for him by murdering. him
in his own bed. The daughter, Vin-
nie, vows for revenge, but she is
unable to gain the co-operation of
her brother, who believes his moth-
er innocent.
In the end the son discovers his
mother's guilt. The puritanical per-
secution of Vinnie drives both the
mother and the son to end their
lives and Vinnie, half-puritanical
witch and half-pagan, is sole sur-
vivor and is condemned to pay for
her sins of asceticism by living
among the ghosts of those who
have died.
The play is marked by the mor-
bid introspective characterizations
seen in most O'Neill works. The re-
vealing scapel of his pen exposes
so many abhorrent and depressing
human traits that the audience
was stunned into several moments
silence at the final curtairf before
it began an ovation that lasted for
fully ten minutes.
