taximeter of size and design approved by the Mayor
and Chief of Police, such taximeter to be some
mechanically approved instrument or device by which
the charge for hire of the taxicab is numerically cal-
culated for both distance travelled and waiting time,
upon which device such charge shall be indicated by
means of figures which shall be visible to the pass-
enger in such cab. After sundown, the face of the
taximeter shall be illuminated by a suitable light so
arranged as to throw a continuous steady light ther-
on. No taxicab shall be operated on the streets of
the city of -Ann Arbor without having attached
thereto an approved taximeter as herein provided.
Every taxicab operator in the City of Ann Arbor shall
have posted in his cab a printed statement showing
the name of the owner, license number and a'sched-
ule of the rates in efeect, the letters and figures of
said printed schedule to be not smaller than 10-point
capital type.
SECTION 1OA - No person, firm or corporation
owning, operating or controlling any public taxicab,
licensed as aforesaid, shall charge to exceedthe fol-
lowing rates, to be determined by the taximeter:
For the first one-half mile or fraction thereof for
one Person, 25c; for each additional one-half mile
or fraction thereof, 10c; for each additional passen-
ger carried a charge not to exceed 25c for the entire
trip; for each four minutes of waiting or fraction
thereof, 10c; waiting time shall include the time
when the taxicab is not in motion, beginning with
the arrival to the place at which it has been called,
or the time consumed standing at the direction of the
passenger, but no charge shall be made for time lost
by the inefficiency of the taxicab or its operator or
time consumed by premature response to the call.
Taxicabs hired by hour may charge $- for the
first hour and $ for each and every hour there-
after.

Something terrible happened tol
us today. We are now firm believ-
ers in the old axiom about getting'
our just dues and the finger of
fate and what not, because all our
old sins are coming back on us. it
seems that because we are not verya
studious, we have gotten in bad
withthe proper authorities on this
point. Result: We must retire from
the delightful little duty of filling
up a column every day with spark-
ling, scintillating humor. People
disay we, must, and we believe them.
Sunday we will print a whole tear-
ful column full of tender good-
byes and god-bless-yous. But until
then--.

SECTION 16B-No person, co-partner, firm or
corporation shall permit more than four passengers
and the driver to be carried in any public taxicab
in the City of Ann Arbor, in what is commonly known
as a five-passenger automobile, nor permit more than
six persons and the driver to be. carried in any public
taxicab in the City of Ann Arbor, in what is com-
monly known as a seven-passenger automobile.
Every person, firm or corporation owning and
operating five or more public taxicabs in the City of
Ann Arbor 'shall oper4te or have available for hire
at least one of said taxicabs continuously for a period
of twenty-four hours during each day. All of said
taxicabs shall be available for hire until 12:00 p. in.,
o'clock.
SECTION 10C-Each person, firm or corporation
owning or operating public taxicabs in the City of
Ann Arbor must hold available and offer to the public
for hire one or more of said taxicabs for at least
eleven consecutive months each year and every such
owner shall report on the first and fifteenth day of
each and every month hereafter to the Chief of
Police of the City of Ann Arbor, the numbers of such
public taxicabs or cabs which have been so operated
by him or them. I
SECTION 10D-Every taxicab operated on the
streets of Ann Arbor shall be equipped with a glass
partition of sound construction so as to separate the
driver's compartment from that portion of the cab
used by the passengers.
SECTION 2-This ordinance shall take effect and
be in force on and after ten days from legal publica-
tion.
Wall street gained fiveb illion dollars Tuesday as
the stock market took an upward surge. Smebody
must have incorporated the Capone interests.
Identification cards will be compulsory for admit-
tance to the football games this year. If our card is
like last year's was we shan't be able to see ANY
games this year.
The cheering section is all set to give fans a big
season. We hope some of the boys \ have become
aware of the fact that it isn't spelled "Kipgg" or
"Stpke."
A block of seats in the stadium has been reserved
for the Detroit chapter of the National Association
of Accountants for Saturday's game. They have to
have somebody to help Bud Poorman get those yard-
age figures right.
Juan Esteban Montero has been elected to the
presidency of Chile in an election "attended by dis-
orders and marked by at least five deaths," a dis-
patch says, New York city having recently run a
large part of its violent element out of town.
Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon have com-
pleted, quite nonchalantly, one of the most dangerous

Washington, D. C., while Senator Norris is addressing

SCREEN IREIFLECTIONSJ
AT THE MAJESTIC
In spite of a society story of life and love among
the elite of New York that hardly sparkles with
originality, Claudette Colbert and an unusually good
cast manage to inject a considerable element of en-
tertainment into Paramount's "Secrets of a Secret-
ary" at the Majestic.
It seems that Claudette is an extremely wealthy
debutante of leisure who marries a supposedly rich
young South 4merican on a night of rare love. Then
camet he market crash ('member?). Along with the
stocks, their love and riches also crashed-whereupon
Claudette sets out to earn her living as a social
secretary. Naturally, the handsome young lord from
the British Isles comes along.
Despite several trite situations, the story has been
capably directed by George Abbott. Georges Metaxa
and Herbert Marshall enact the two male leads most
satisfactorily-while the charming Miss Colbert once
again confirms her standing as one of the talking
screen's most accomplished actresses-no fooin'
On the whole, "Secrets of a Secretary" is another
case of an excellent cast wasted on a weak story.
The entertainment they provide
raises the film's rating to a C+-.
AT THE MICHIGAN .
A new Liberty Street program
onens today with Nancy Carrolll'

Yesterday we received a letter
from R. J. F. but too late for pub-
lication in yesterday's column. The
letter contained a clipping from a
Columbus Ohio paper which relat-
ed a little story about a tourist
camp. We lost the clipping and we
don't remember where the tourist
camp was, but at any rate, the
tourist camp contained, as tourist
camps do, a whole row of little
overnight cottages which were all
named after states of the Union.
Off to one side there stood a small
cottage of Chicksalian character
bearing the name "Ohio." R. F. J.
suggests that this story ought to
be of interest in view of the pend-
ing Michigan-Ohio State game. So
it is, and we appreciate it.,

* * *
And here is a post card received
yesterday from Jordan Hill, City.
Dear Smiley, alias Johnny
Chuck, alias Pecan Rolls, or
What Have You? I suggest if
I may that you change your
name to either:
1.--Ima Nutt.
2.-John Tough.
3.--Max Noddiference.
4.-Hally Tosis.
Thanx, or You're Welcome,
Ima Fish.
Well, after all those hot sugges-
tions we just about decided not to
change our name at all but just
stick to plain old Smiley, the fel-
low who laughs at'life, but as a
last resort we dug into the ex-.
change files to see what the hu-
morists on other Campi are doing
about this very vexing problem. At
Southern California, North Caro-
lina, and Colorado they solve the
problem by not having any column
at all. Here is a list of other Col-
lege papers and the names of their
humor columns.
Oregon State M a r o m e t e r-
Smudge from the Pot.
Purdue Exponent-Bold & Black.
Daily Northwestern-The Last
Word
Daily Cardinal (Wisconsin)-The
Rambler.
Ohio State Lantern-Anybody's
Bizness.
Daily Illini-Campus Scout.
Daily Iowan-Today's Topics.
Out of the whole bunch the only
paper that had a column anything
like Toasted Rolls was the InIdiana
Daily Student, whose column is
called Chimes. Maybe there is
something wrong with Indiana and
us! We don't know.
The \Editors of the Columns list-
ed ab ve signed themselves vari-
ously as Ellengee, Algernon, jkn,
Duke, The Star Gazer, Larry, Ber-
lin, Kline & Endich, Paul Tulane,
O. K. Keed, and the like, none of
which nom-de-plumes inspired us
particularly. This whole business
of finding a name is' getting so
burdensome that we have just
about deicded to stick to the orig-
inal name of Smiley.
* * *
In fact, we have decided. We
just happened to think that if
we left the question unsettled
we might get more suggestions
via the mails. Ima Fish might
even think up a few more.
Yes! we have decided. From
now on we are nothing but
Smiley, and let there be no
more quibbling about it. We
don't even want to talk about
it any more.
