to take the place of the Religious
Emphasis week which was conduct-
ed last year, is to be conducted this
year under the auspices of the
Council of Religion, made up of the
various student church groups, and
the Student Christian Association,
according to an announcement of
the preliminary committee which
I met in. Lane Hall last night. The
Seminar is to be conducted for four
days beginning March 2.
Differing in objective from that
of last year, the Seminar is to be
conducted on an all-Campus, non-
sectarian basis with meetings
scheduled in Hill Auditorium and
Natural Science Auditorium.

Riverside Church, New York City,

Things were bad enough f o r
James Fulton, 52, known 'as "Mail-
pouch" to college students from
coast to coast, when he was arrest-
ed Monday for investigation on
complaint of students who told po-
lice that $50 was missing from a
fraternity house where he had been
doing some table-top calving.
Arrest for investigation permits
police to hold a suspect 48 hours.
without charge, and Mailpouch fig-
ured that when that time was up
he would again be free.
And just at that point things be-
gan to get tough for Mr. Fulton.
Yesterday, (Friday the Thirteenth,
by the way) it was revealed by
Sergeant Louis W. Fohey that since
the time limit for holding the un-
fortunate Mailpouch on the drunk-
enness charge which was placed
Wednesday night was up last night,
a new charge was to be placed un-
der which the suspect could be held
for still another two day term.
Besides there seems to be no pos-
sibility that the police department
will run out of charges to place
against the prisoner, whose immed-
iate future looks not particularly

Snell Pitted Against Tilson
in Contest for House
Party's Election of Speaker Is
.Regarded as Almost
WASHINGTON, Nov. 13.-(P)--
Discord among House Republicans
over the party's speakership nom-
ination today produced confusing
claims of superior support for two
outstanding candidates.
Backers of Rep. Snell, New York;
called his nomination assured.
Supporters of Rep. Tilson, of Con-
necticut, claimed the votes of ap-
proximately half of the party mem-
bership. A caucus Nov. 30 will set-
tle the question.
The party has about lost all hope
of actually electing Aa speaker. So
in reality the prize at stake is party
Tilson was selected floor leader
at the Republican. February cau-
cus. He holds that action stands.
On the other hand, Snell's friends
contend that if he is nominated for
speaker and defeated, he automat-
ically would become minority lead-
Ir'the last Cong* with the late
Nicholas Longworth as Speaker,
Tilson was floor leader and Snell
chairman of the rules committee.
The caucus which nominated Til-
son as floor leader renamed Long-
worth for the speakership.
Performance to Be Given Twice
Today at Masonic Temple;
50 Russians in Cast.
The Russian Revue, ''Blue Bird"
will make its appea'nce here to-
day with two presentations, a mat-
inee performance at 2:30 o'clock
and an evening appearance at 8:15
o'clock at the Masonic Temple.
This unusual prodution which is
being sponsored by the Ann Arbor
Commandary body of the Masonic
Order is something of the nature
of the Chauve-soiris, being made
up of about 20 scenes which range
from the despairs of the forlorn,
out of key urchins who sing with
the hurdy-gurdy in the street, to
the sublime comedy exposed in the
afternoon tea conversations of mat-
rons discussing one of their mem-
bers not present.
The cast of 50 Russian principals
includes its own orchestra with N.
Gogoloff conducting whose attain-
ments upon the piano are especial-
ly laudable. Conferencier Yushny
with his unique command of the
English language is also particu-
larly brilliant.
Answers to the first monthly
set of current events questions
of the New York Times intercol-
legiate news contest have been
received by P r o f. Everett S.
Brown of the political science
department, who is in charge of
the local contest.
These answers, which appear
on page four of today's Daily,
are to the questions which ap-
peared in the Saturday, Nov. 7
issue. In the future the answers
will appear on the day follow-
ing publication of the group of
Dumas' Drama to Have

throughout, exactly like it appears
in The Daily. The 'envelope con-
tained only typed directions besides
the stamped postmark.
A sensational Detroit newspaper
made known the story late yester-
day afternoon. After that it was
admitted that both LaJeunesse and
Hudson had received letters. Last
night it was denied that Omer had
received any such letter. The first
reports said nothing of LaJeunesse,
did not state the amount of the
bribe offering, and gave another
name than VanSwerigan. "Van-
Swerigan" is not listed in the Lan-
ino dirrtnrie sand the other name

It's one thing to dance 'quietly
and intimately with a few friends,
and it's quite another thing to. get
out and bump shoulders (not to
mention toes) with a melee repre-
senting half the town. For those
students and townspeople w h o
haven't had such a chance for
months, the Ann Arbor policemen
and firemen are providing an allur-
ing opportunity.
It's going to mean more than
just a lot of good fun, too. Tie en-
tire proceeds of the Fourth Annual
Policemen's and Firemen's ball will
be turned over to local charity and
relief work.

Alice E. Lloyd will grant special
permission to co-eds to stay out
late that evening.
If it's old-time music you crave,
a whole floor has been reserved for
your entertainment, and the ground
floor at that. Reginald Eastlake
and his Original Old-Timers will
be the downstairs musicians. No
old-time dance is complete with-
out someone to "call" the dances,
and 0. H. Cady has been enlisted
for that job.
Itchier toes will meet their chal-
lenge upstairs w h e r e Benson's
eleven-piece orchestra will provide
