Local Workers Shrink From Job
of Advertising Comedy
Club Play.
Undismayed at having an eco-
nomic depression slip through its
fingers, Comedy club has decided,
"the show must go on."
Presenting "The Streets of New
York," dealing with the depres-
sion of 1857, because of its appro-
priateness to the alleged present
depression, the club was consider-
ably taken aback when the current
depression in Ann Arbor was re-
vealed to be nothing more than a
myth, apparently a shadow of its
former self.
After placarding the town for a,
week with the slogan, "Poverty is
no crime," Comedy club is nowj
forced to reveal facts which show
that poverty is a crime.
The ignominy of poverty is ap-
parently such a crime that not one
member of Ann Arbor's vast army,
of unemployed can be hired to play!
the role of sandwich man, carry-
ing a sign on his back for 50 cents
an hour to advertise the play,
which opened last night at the
Mendelssohn theatre.
Last Monday Robert C. McDon-
ald, '32, business manager of the
show, called the Ann Arbor unem-
ployment bureau and asked to be
put in touch with a man, preferab-
ly beyond middle age, who could
be hired to work for three days
carrying an advertising "sandwich"
on his back. No results from the
bureau have been forthcoming

Anxious to obtain someone for
the position, and with no Comedy
club members volunteering to fill
the breach, McDonald yesterday
answered a want ad inserted in a
local paper by a man who seem-
ingyc desired work. This particu-
lar soldier of the great army of un-
employed declined the job when-
told that the work would be for
only ive hours each day.
Besekirsky and Rhead
Will Present Concert
Wassily Beekirsky, professor of
viclin, and 'Mabel Ross Rhead, asso-
cite professor of piano in the mu-
si school, will combine in a violin
and piano sonata recital Sunday
afternoon in Lydia Mendelssohn
theatre. Hill auditorium had been
originally scheduled but was impos-
sible to obtain.
The artists have achieved not
only local, but national recognition
for their work in the piano-violin
field and gave a number of con-
certs last year.

University Lawyer Contends
Scientific Instruments
Are Not Taxable.
(Big Ten News Service)
URBANA, Ill., Nov. 19.-Prof.
Sveinbjorn Johnson of the College
of Law of the University of Illi-
nois, legal counsel, recently filed
a brief in the United States court
of customs appeals which may,
mean an annual savings of $100,000
to state institutions throughout
tle country.-+
The University is contesting the
right of the national government
to levy and collect taxes on scien-
tific instruments for use exclusive-
ly for educational purposes by a
state-supported institution.
In a decision in June, 1929, the
United States customs court held
that the University was a proprie-
tary institution, not a state agent,
and could therefore be assessed for
the tax.


Defense of Capitalism Called
eDefense of Brutality.'
"Defense of capitalism is defense
of brutality beyond description. The
story of child labor in the wool
and cotton mills of England is one
of tie tragedies of history."
These opinions were brought be-
fore the Michigan Socialist club
Wednesday night by Richard Nay-
smith, co-worker of Ramsey Mac-
Donald and Philip Snowden in the
early days of the English labor par-
ty, in a talk, "The Growth and
Present Position of the British La-
bor Party." Naysmith has been in
America for 10 years anc is at the
present time located in Detroit. He
was one of the survivers of the de-
funct Socialist party of Michigan.
"Labor unions originated in Scot-
land a good many years ago. The
labor party first was established in
Parliament in 1900, with 15 seats,
and from that time has increased
at every election until the last,
when it lost a few seats. This de-
feat will do the party good, and

will wake the members up," said

"The British worker expects the Prof.
government to see that he has work to
if he supports the government. 1
Unlike America, Britain is at all ( Prof.
times faced with unemployment. nomics
The Labor party attempts to alle- the seco
viate this, and has in a measure the Cos,
succeeded. Like all Socialists, they tomorro
favor free trade. It is the only fessor R
labor movement that is not protec- the rela
tionist. ter natioi
