unanimously elected president of
the new Student Council by the,

morrow, although the list of names
of candidates was cut down so that,
at. the present time, there are two
possible choices for each position.
Names No Released.
There are to be five new junior
and two new senior members, Mc-
Cormickstated. These will be tak-
en from a list of ten juniors and
four seniors. Both the active and
ex-officio councilmen will vote. The

The 14 men were chosen from a
list of more than 100 names. They
were picked, not because of prom-
inence in activities, but because
they would have the time and in-
terest to work on the council, Mc-
Cormick said.
Members stated that no campus
politics of any sort had been or
would be employed in the selection
of the men to fill the vacancies.
McCormick Makes Statement.
In a statement to the Daily, Mc-
Cormick said: "Because of its pol-
icy of inactivity during the past
few years, the new Student Council
will naturally be under the care-
ful scrutiny of the student body.
It is the sincere intention of this
council to profit by the errors of
the past and really to prove that
the Michigan student body can
successfully operate through the
system of student government that
the council provides."
The regular meeting of the coun-
cil will be held tomorrow night at
the Union. At this time, the date
for the annual Homecoming w1l
be set.

complaint filed Aug. 6, charged Pro-
fessor Nyswander with cruelty and
sullenness of disposition.

The Daily's fight for the elimi-

Ann Arbor streets and the evil of
fluctuating rates, which in years
past have cost students thousands
of dollars, reached a definite goal
last night when Ald. Benjamin

night on the taxicab situation.

presented the following. Monday

Amendment Not New.
The amendment is not altogether
new since it was brought,... on
June 15, 1931, and was given two
readings. At that time no agree-
ment could be reached by interested
persons outside the council, and the
amendment was referred back to
the ordinance committee. There-
fore, the amendment requires only
one more reading in order to be

Trial of Katherine Keller on a
charge of harboring Fred Smith,
Ypsilanti torch killer, has been set
for Thursday morning at 9 o'clock.
Miss Keller stood mute yesterday
afternoon when arraigned before
Judge George W., Sample in circuit
court, and the judge entered a plea
of not guilty.
Pros. Albert J. Rapp and Asst,
Atty. Gen. Edward A. Bilitzke re-
turned from Marquette prison,
where they had interviewed the
Negro murderer, David Blackstone,
shortly before 5 o'clock and imme-
diately went into conference with
Judge Sample. They refused to
make any statement to reporters.
W. D. Grommon, of Hillsdale, Miss
Keller's attorney, waxed emotional
as he protested advancement of her
trial from its position at the end of
the criminal docket to first place
on the fall court term. He also indi-
cated he would seek a change of
venue Thursday morning.
Miss Keller's trial would have
been number 83 if the judge had
not ordered it set forward. Mr.
Grommon protested, and asked its
postponement, but his request was
not granted.
The attorney said he would de-
mand the change of venue because
newspaper accounts of the one-man
grand jury proceedings had caused
public opinion prejudicial to the
defendant, which would influence
prospective jurors.
In addition Mr. Grommon said
that Judge Sample, in giving six

Senator Dwight F. Morrow's un-
timely death will be keenly felt by
the entire country as well as by,
the Republican party, Prof. Jesse
S. Reeves, of the political science
department, said last night.
"There are too few men in public
life with the training, ability, and
spirit of Senator Morrow, and his
passing will not go unnoticed.
"Senator M o r r o w has always
been admired for the possession of
those traits of character possessed

"One of Morrow's outstanding
characteristics was his ability to
inspire loyalty in his friends. When
he graduated from Amherst in
1895 he was voted by all his class-
mates as the man most likely to
succeed. The only dissenting vote
was his own. That was cast for his
class-mate Calvin Coolidge, later
to become president of the United
States. .
"His outstanding achievement
before the public eye was his re-
markable work in Mexico. He was,

Ralph Caird, grad., was listed
among the six Americans and one
Canadian to receive the Charles
Lathrop Pack forestry awards for
1931, it was announced last night
by University officials.
Caird was given one of the prizes,
which range to $1,500, for the pur-
pose of assisting him in the con-
tinuation of his investigations in
normal and pathological tree phys-
iology and to continue the general
study of forestry begun under the
Charles Lathrop Pack' fellowship
awarded in 1930. The amount of
Caird's award was not announced.

estry field, has as its purpose the
