Will Be Exhumed
Ann Arbor Second Only to Gotham
as Student Drinking Center, Claim H





Ann Arbor's standing as a student
liquor consuming center among
universities of the country is sur-
passed only by that of the city of
New York, according to a recent
survey of the situation made by
two Wisconsin graduates who dis-
cuss their findings in a recent issue
of Campus Comics quarterly.
Closely folowed by Michigan, in
the opinion of the investigators, are
Reno, the seat of the University of
Nevada, and Madison, the well
known playground of the Wisconsin
Gordon F. Swarthout and James
S. Watrous, authors of the treatise,
rate the city of Ann Arbor as being
"lousily dry," and go on to explain
the high rating the Michigan cam-
pus received as being due to the
weekly expeditions 'made by stu-
dents to Detroit, well known as the
alcoholic capitol of the Middle West.
While the favorite campus drink
at Michigan is whiskey, according
to the report, there is little drinking'
done in Ann Arbor except very
much on the quiet, since the Uni-r

versity snaps the padlock on all
places where liquor is found, even
fraternity houses. Current prices in
Ann Arbor for alleged genuine
Canadian imports are: rye $6 a
quart, beer available within 10 miles
$6 for 5 gallons; scotch $7 to $10
a quart, alky $10 to $15 a gallon,
and gin $1.50 to $3 a quart, accord-
ing to the writers.
Swarthout and Watrous describe
their own alma imater as being a
center for the spiked beer industry,
with whiskey and gin also popular.
Swarthout was the editor of last
year's Wisconsin Octopus, and both
authors of the article are affiliated
with Kappa Beta and TNE.
In discussing the nation wide sit-
uation the survey names the Uni-
versity of Virginia as a good drink-
ing school, along with the others
already rated. While the traditional
student drink of the nation is beer,
the report concludes the Middle
West, especially Michigan, Wiscon-
sin, and Iowa, is the only area
where the beer tradition is being
thoroughly upheld.

Ypsilanti Man Receives Position R
Left Vacant by Dismissal
of E. Lynn Squires.
Richad Klavitter, alderman and'
hotel manager, was named deputy f
sheriff at Ypsilanti Tuesday nighta
by Sheriff Jacob B. Andres to fill
the vacancy left by E. Lynn Squires, i
who was forced to resign this week S
for not co-operating with the Wash-n

loid newspaper, to retain Squires, v
who, they claimed, was responsible 8
for solving several murders.
Klavitter is alderman of' the
fourth ward here, and is a brother

1930 FALL MAR'K'
Zegistration Recovers From Its
Temporary Slump; Literary
School Total Lower.
Enrollment fi g u r e s recovered
rom a temporary slump yesterday,
and totals compiled by statisticians
n the office of Registrar Ira M.
Smith showed that to date the
number of students enrolled in the
University is only 172 less than the
number enrolled a year ago yester-
day. Last year 8890 were listed
while the figure yesterday totaled
The enrollment for yesterday
was: 157 men; 48 women. Four
schools showed greater totals than
those of a year ago. The school of
business administration had 112
enrollments last night, while last
year the figure stood at 109; the
forestry school had 50 as against
the 42 of a year ago; the nursing
school had 275 ytsterday and 271
last year; and the graduate school
topped the list with an increase of
144, 1014 being enrolled when the
lists were closed last night and
only 870 being listed for the same
time last year.
The slight drop in total enroll-
ment is attributable to 'decreased
registration in the littrary school,
where 130 less enrolled this year
than last, the figures being, 4059
last year and 3929 this year.
Registrar Smith was optimistic
that before registration closes the
totals will equal or exceed those of
last year, since students are con-
tinuing to apply daily for entry.
The literary school leads the
campus in total enrollment and the
engineering school is second with
1373, only one less than last year's
total of 1374.

'Ensian Campus Sale
to Be Opened Today
The first all-campus sale of the
Michiganensian will be held today.
Harry S. Benjamin, '32, business
manager, stated.

Unless the officials toe the mark,'
he has in mind to go to the peo-
ple on behalf of asking Congress
for the minimum cash required.
Some navy executives have dis-
pleased him by working to get more
money for that service that he con-
siders warranted. Their activit
evoked a storm warning today
against the lack of such.
It was put this way: If the gov-
ernment departments themselves'
advocated increased funds, through
issuance of public statements3 or
information to newspapers, for ex-
ample, the president will take to
the people his insistence against
Presumably, he would rely on a
quick reflection of public opinion
on Congress to attain the end

abandonmgnt of financial demands
on Congress until times improve.

ticularly at organized attempts to
get funds for special projects.
