Lots Will Decide Who Is to Be Pilot
io Trip from Hawaii to United States

Plans for the organization of two
divisions in the Varsity Glee club
are rapidly taking form with the
continued tryouts of new mem-
bers, Clyde A. Chaffin, president of
the organization, said yesterday.
Although 137 men have been
listed for, membership in the club
and an additional number may be
added before the end of the week,
the list is expected to total 100
when the elgi'ility report from the
University is posted.
Two Divisions Formed
The two divisions of the club will
consist of a "full" or "home" Glee
club and a traveling organization.
The traveling club will consist of
about 40 voices, while the home or-
ganization will be composed of ali
those who qualify for membership.
It is expected that this plan Will
permit more men to take part in
the society's activities and will also
enable the club to select more nia-
terial for its out-of-town engage-
In addition to the above clubs,
the Freshman Glee club has also
been organized. This is the first
time that a first year unit has been
in existence during the first senies-
ter, although the women's organ-
ization has sponsored one for a
number of years.
Call For Tryouts
Chaffin also announced that try-
outs for any of the glee clubs may
still report for hearings and the
official membership of all organiza-
tions will be posted soon.
Numerous concerts for the com-
ing s(on have already been plan-'
ned, and from the tentative book-
ings which were announced pre-
viously by Prof. David M. Mattern,
director of the club, a number of
out-of-town engagements will be

bership in the organization are

Wood Alcohol, Metals Foundt
in Campaign on White 4
Mule,' Dives.t
LANSING, Oct. 8.-(AP)--A floodr
of poisonous and contaminating
beverages has replaced bona fide
liquor on the Michigan market, ac-
cording to a report today to Oscar
G. Olander, commissioner of public
safety, by W.C. Geagley, state an-
alyst. The report was based uponl
tests made of scores of supplies
seized in the recent "white mule"
campaign. -
"From examination of these spe-c
cimens it is evident legitimate al-
coholic liquor can no longer be ob-
tained except for medical pur-
poses," Geagley said. "Neverthe-
less, there exists a wide market for
intoxicating liquors. To satisfy the1
demand, the bootlegger is drawing1
supplies from crooked origins. '
Finds Wood Alcohol
"Smuggling, cheating, illicit dis-
tilling, redistillation, cutting, fil-
thy fermentation and diversion of
industrial alcohol are furnishingZ
the material for beverages.
"Many of the alcohols have beent
redistilled to remove the denatur-
ants which were added to make
them unfit for beverage purposes.
Occasionally wood alcohol is pres-"

";These products are often used in
bathtub gin, colored moonshine
litluor and other potent types
which bear fancy labels, selling the
consumer into the belief the pro-
ducts are legitimate liquors rather
than a highly dangerous type
which produce harmful after-ef-
fects and poison the system.
Contaminated With Metals
"Many of the so-called moon-
shine liquors are contaminated
with metallic substances such as
lead, zinc and arsenic. The white
mule liquors are poorly fermented
from distilled products and contain
high percentages of aldehydes.
There are also acids besides the us-
ual dirt and filth which render
such products unfit for beverages.
"It is plainly evident that the
continued use for beverage pur-.
poses of bootleg liquors such as
are now on the market is attend-
ant with alarming possibilities."
