{ al h hto The Dail)
SOUTH BEND, Ind., April 18.-
Four University of Michigan stu-
dents, returning to Ann Arbor af-
ter the Spring vacation, were in-
jured late Sunday when the car in,
which they were riding was crowd-
ed off U. S. Highway No. 20 about
four miles west of the city and
plunged into a ditch at the side of
the road. The car turned over
Those injured are Jane Moore,
'32, of Fayetteville, Ark., who suf-
fered lacerations about the head
and a leg injury; Mabel Claire Gold,
Spec., also of Fayetteville, broken
arm and lacerations about t h e
head; Helen Belcher, '32, of Manis-
tee, concussion of the brain and in-
jury to the back; and John W.
Beuret, Grad., of Detroit, driver of
the car, concussion of the brain and
bruises. All are expected to recover.
A fifth student, whose identity
is unknown, who was riding, in the
rumble seat with Miss Moore, was
uninjured. He told police officers
he was.asleepewhen the car crash-
ed. The car, a cabriolet model, was
completely wrecked.
Three of those injured were
thrown from the car when it rolled
over and luggage from the car was
scattered. Two boys driving past
the scene shortly after the accident
raced into town and reported it to
police. The city ambulance was
sent and Miss Belcher, Miss Gold.
and Beuret were taken to Epworth
hospital. Miss Moore, although in-
Jured, refused to be taken with the
others but was later brought by a
motorist to the police station and
asked to be taken to the hospital.
Beuret told police that a car com-
ing from the opposite direction
forced him to turn off the road in
order to avoid a head-on crash.

Kidnappers Menace
Ann Arbor Denizens
Ann Arbor has been having
its own kidnap mystery, it was
'revealed last night.
Bennie, great dane mascot of
one of the local fraternities/was
kidnapped from a private house
in Detroit where he was spend-
ing his Spring vacation and
held for ransom.
The fraternity managed to
get in touch with the kidnapper
through advertisements in the
classified columns of a Detroit
newspaper and was informed
that for $25 they would be told
the name of the party that had
spirited the animal away.
The call was traced through
the telephone exchange in De-
troit and one of the members of
the fraternity called on the'
kidnapper, with two policemen
to lend moral support. Bennie
was discovered hidden in -a
shack within the city limits,

Three one-act plays dealing with
Negro life, acted and directed by
Negroes and written by a member
of the Negro race, a student in the
University at the present, will be
presented at 8:30 o'clc-k Iriday
night at the Laboratory theatre.
Under the auspices of the depart-
ment of language and literature,
the Detroit chapter of Delta Sigma
Theta, Negro Greek-letter organi-
zation, will bring the production to
Ann Arbor. A nominal charge of
twenty-five cents will be made' for
admission, which will go towards
defraying the cost of production.
The plays to be given have been
written by Miss Doris D. Price, her-
self a member of the Negro race,
in a course in play writing taught
by Prof. Kenneth Rowe of the Eng-
lish department. Miss Price's plays
were among those selected as most
worthy of production, but offered
the difficulty of convincing inter-
pretation by members of another
race than that which the charac-
ters represented, it was suggested.
The difficulty has been surmount-
ed through the interest of the Delta
Sigma Theta organization of De-
troit and especially that of Eliza-
beth Morton, director of the show.
