Detroit District to Go Before
Michigan Electors for
Proposal Referred to Committee
on Ways and Means. With"
DETROIT, Oct. 1. - (/P) - Wayne
county will go before Michigan
electors during the next 14 months
with a definite proposal for per-
mntent settlement of the perennial
battle over reapportionment of
legislative seats. S
Its proposal, providing division of
te senate seas strictly on a terri-
torial basis and of houseseats on
a poplation basis and making re-
apportionment a ministerial duty
of the secretary of state, was sub-
mitted to the board of supervisors
Wednesday by a pe . committee
named two years ago to draft such
a plan.
The plan was referred to the
board's committee on ways and
means, with instructions that peti-
tfins be drafted to place such a
reapportionment amendment on the
ballot at the November, 1932, elec-

University Loans Over
$60,000, Report Shows
A total of 382 students have bor-
rowed approximately $60,000 from
the University since September 1,
a report for the month of Septem-
ber by the University loan commit-
tee showed yesterday.
Joseph A. Bursley, dean of stu-
dents, said that about $35,000 of
the total for the month comprised
loans which were renewed from last
year, while the remaining $25,000
are new loans.
Seniors are prefered by the loan
committee as applicants for funds,
officials said, while few loans are
extended to freshmen. The loan
renewals appearing on the files of
the committee are those extended
last year, which have been repayed.

Legal Research Library Windows
Described in Leading ArticleI
of Graduates' Magazine.
Stained glass windows in the
new Lega1 liesea rch libra.ry repre-
senting the ,eals of law colleges
thrcughout the world are the re-
sult of much research, according
to an article in the current num-
ber of the Michigan Alumnus.
That the windows were executed
in a spirit of pleasure and are
therefore more works of art than
mere commercial products is well
illustrated by a letter. It was writ-

George Meyer Pronounces Name
Ncw Way to Avoid Conflict
With New Professor.
Unidversitie s often cha nge the
'iv ofmersn ut the U1niver:ity of
Michigan changes not only their
lives but also their names.
When Dr. Norman R. F. Maier
arrived on the campus to talxe the
place left vacant on the staff of the
University psychology department
by the resignation of Prof. Adelbert
Ford, he found exactly tha t to be
the case. When it was discovered
that Dr. Maier's name was pro-
nounced in precisely the same way
as that of George Meyer, already
an instructor in the same depart-
ment, the heads of the department
visioned a scene of general up-
heaval in the department and Dr.
Maier was told to pronounce his
name exactly as it was spelled.
M-e-y-e-r became M-a-y-o-r.
Dr. Maier received his doctor of
philosophy degree here in 1928. He

received his entire education here
except for one year's study at the
University of Berlin. He taught in
New York City during the year 1929.
For the last two years he has
occupied a fellowship on the Na-
tional Psychological Research Coun-
cil. Stationed at Chicago, he con-
ducted a series of stdies on brain
lesions through experiments witha
the behavior of rats. That, incident-
ally, was the subject of his thesis
here. His experiments wr con-
ducted with the aid of Prof. K. S.
Lashley, research director at the
University of Chicago.

Last Times To


Bingum, McNeal Cor-
Three Day Digging of
Indian Mound.

Dr. Carl E. Guthe, director of the
University museum of anthropology,
together with B. H. Bingum and
Milton McNeal, of Muskegon, have
completed a three day excavation
of an Indian mound located north-
east of the city.
The finished excavation revealed
important cross-sections illustrating
the structure of the mound and the
way it was built. The men found
inside of the mound a single burial
of a child eight years old, with
which was found a copper ax, beads)
of rolled sheet copper, a bear's
ksooth which had been drilled for
a pendant, and fragments of sea
shells. There were also complete but
broken pottery vessels with charac-
teristic pattern work.
"Thesematerials," Guthe explain -
ed, "are characteristic of what
,arch'aeologists call the Hopewell
civilization, which reached its high-
est levels in central Ohio.
"This early Indian civilization,"
he continued, "was apparently a
very artistic one and one which was
devoted to thepeaceful arts instead
of warfare. Similar materials have
been found in other parts of Michi-
gan, such as Kent and Newago
"This information could not have
been obtained, were it not for the
careful consideration given to all
aspects of the record in the ground.
The species alone would not have
had the importance they hold today
if the mound had not been stud-


Chairman Robert D. Wardell of
the special committee presented to
the board its report.
To Waive Extra Seats.
Under the provisions, he explain-1
ed, Wayne county would waive the
six or seven additional senate seats
to which the latest census entitles
it, under the present constitution.
Senate districts would remain un-
changed, thus guaranteeing, he said
that Wayne county never will dom-
inate both branches of the legisla-
ture. Such a guarantee was lack-
ing in the reapportionment pro-
posal voted down two years ago.
Membership in the senate would
remain at 32, elected from their,
present districts. The house mem-
bership would stand .at 100, to be
elected from districts apportioned
every 10 years. Senators would be
elected for four-year instead of
two-year terms, while terms of
house members would be unchanged
at two years.
House To Represent Cities.
Under that plan, the report says,
rural members would be in control
of the senate, while the house
would "adequately represent" the
larger population centers.
The rule proposed for reappor-
tionment would divide the state's
total population by 100. Each coun-
ty containing less than one,-hun-
dredth of the total population
would be attached to some contig-
uous county or counties to form a
representative district without ex-
ceeding the population limitation of
one-hundredth. One representative
Would be assigned for each one-
hundredth of the total.
At the discretion of boards of
supervisors in counties of moredthan
100,000 population any city therein
could be divided into legislative1

An attempt to make cabinet

association more easily accessiable
to student desiring information or
advice concerning the Uni ersity
or the association was made in a

Emmons at Meeting
of Highway Engineers
Prof. W. J. Emmons, the School
of Engineering, and director of the
State Highway laboratory, is in
Washington, D. C. where he is con-
ferring with other members of the
h i g h w a y research department's
committee on the correlation of
research in mineral aggregates.
Professor Emmons is chairman of
the committee, which is composed
of leading highway engineers from
many parts of the country.
The committee will endeavor to
make arrangements to place all re-
search in highway building ma-
terials under one board of admiin-

the building and the generous and
friendly spirit of everyone with
whom we were brought in contact,
drove from our minds all thoughts
of saving of effort, so we added to

would have permitted repitition of
but a short list of institutions of'

Among other features of this
week's Alumnus are an article on
the Glee club of the class of 1872
by John J. Mapel, '72, a member,
and, "Thoughts on Mutual Assass-
ination," by R. A. Humphreys, com-
monwealth fellow in history at the
University of Michigan. This arti-
cle consists of two inimical letters
between Sir Henry Clinton, com-
mander-in-chief of the British
forces in 1778, and William Living-
ston, governor of New Jersey at
that time. The letters are taken
from the William L. Clements li-
brary collection of Americana. An
excerpt from the letter by Living-
ston to Clinton: "I beg leave to ac-
quaint you that I am possessed of
the most authentic proofs of a
General Officer under your com-
mand having offered a large sum
of money to an inhabitant of this
state to assasinate me in case he
could not take me alive."
Ministers of the various local'
churches who, under the title of
"student pastors" have been de-
voting, and will continue to devote,
the greater part of theirtime to
student activities, will this year
have offices in Lane hall, it has
been announced. Closer contact,
both with the student body and
with the Student Christian asso-
ciation will be enjoyed this under
this new system, it is thought.

Glen Hart, neighbor and high

and a friend Richard Skinner, both
of Ypsilanti, testified to the jury.
William Bright, Negro being held
for trial on a liquor law violation
charge, appeared but it is not
known what connection he might
have with the case.
Other witnesses yesterday were

witness who may testify today is
Daniel Vasher, part owner of the
car the torch killers used, and re-
puted leader of an Ypsilanti gang
which he says peddled blackjacks
and dope. Vasher has been sentenc-
ed to 5 to 10 years for an attack on
two small Ypsilanti girls, and is
now in Jackson prison.
Harvey Hubbard and Ted Clark,
who pleaded guilty recently to the
charges of carrying concealed wea-

the lectures may register without
fee, but under such registration }
they will not be able to attend the
luncheon and dinner unless they
purchase tickets when they register.
It was stressed by the committee
that the lectures will be of most
interest to those who have had two
years or more of work in chemistry
or chemical engineering. In only a
few cases, it was said, will the
papers read be intelligible to ele-
mentary students or to those who
have had no chemistry at all.
