Soak Capital and You
Soak Labor' Is

Tax on Beer and Wines
and Modification
NEW YORK, May 16.-()-
Alfred E. Smith, candidate for
the Democratic presidential nom-
ination, tonight advocated the
passage of the manufacturers'
sales tax.
The "happy warrior" of New
York Democracy, who to date
has 46 convention votes pledged
to him, took a positive stand on
the sales, tax and many other
governmental matters in an ad-
dress in which he outlined a
"financial program for the present
lie attacked opponents of the
sales tax for a slogan he said had
been attributed to them by the
press-"in order to make up the
deficient, soak the rich."
"Soak capital and you will soak
labor," Smith said in his rebuttal,
"The demagogues won't agree to
that, but it's true just the same."
Outlines Program.
The congressional program that
Smith outlined in the address
broadcast over a nationWide net-
work, was:
1. Pass the sales tax.
2. Slash to "the extreme limit"
all unnecessary appropriations of
public money.
3. Empower the president to
make an "immediate consolidation
o governmenta ,ctivitI-s- d ,
bureaus and inother ways to re-
duce the cost of government."
4. Halt the passage of more
veterans' legisla on; refuse to pass
the "obnoxious" onus bill; appoint
a committee to list what special
acts and appropriations concern-
ing veterans should be repealed to
restore "the original Wilson princi-
Suggests Bond Issue.
5. Modify thd Volstead act and
tax beer and light wines.
6. Authorize a Federal bond is-
sue to make possible: an epanded
program of Federal improvements;
additional highway aid to the
States; loans to limited divided
corporations for the construction of
low cost housing, and purchase by
the federal government of state
and municipal bonds issued to
finance local public works of long
life and permanent value.
7. Defeat Pres. Hoover's three-.
point Federal relief program (which
Smith criticized minutely).
Would Aid Employment.
8. Give the President a "free
hand to provide aid for productive
public works of states and munici-
palities, as well as for additional
Federal projects, which will bring
about the early employment of a
large number of men.
9. Empower the President to
prolong, if necessary, the morator-
ium extended to debtor nations
"until a real solution can be reach-
ed." -
10. Discourage and avoid "in
every possible way all blocs, cabals,
insurgencies and mug-wump tac-
tics, by whatever name they may be
called, which increased the Depres-
sion, unsettled business, and also
endangered our credit at home and
Gritta Gradova, Featured Pianist,
Will Present Recital
Tomorrow Night.
Ann Arbor's thirty-ninth annual

May Festival, known throughout
the country as the premier musical
gathering of the month, will open
tomorrow night at Hill Auditorium
with the presentation of Haydn's
choral work, "Creation," and a re-

Ills u ru emar in por s L
world around, died of bronchial
pneumonia at his home here today.
He was in his eighty-ninth year
and almost to the end dictated the
policies of the vast ship lines bear-
ing his name.
Flags on State and municipal
buildings were dropped to half-staff
as news of his death became known
-unusual recognition for a private
citizen-and standards of ships in
San Francisco Bay rendered like
tribute at the passing of "the grand
old man of the Pacific."
Funeral services will be held here
Wednesday from the first Presby-
terian Church of San Rafael, of
which Capt. Dollar was a member.
The chimes he gave the church
Custard Pie Winner
in Fight of Century
Tables Turned as Pastry Wins

years ago in memory of his daugh-
ter, Mrs. Grace Dollar Dickson,
will sound his dirge.
Capt. Dollar had been ill two
weeks. He was taken sick after a
visit to a nearby town, where he'
had addressed a meeting of young
people in his characteristic manner,
advising them hard work, and
plenty of it, was the lodestar to
"Work keeps a man in good
health," he was fond of saying, "and
when a man has good health he
keeps at work. My rule for long
life is moderation in all things.
Clean habits, clean thoughts, plenty,
of exercise, fresh air and sunshineI
and plenty of work. And last but
most important, fear God and keep
his commandments."
It was Capt. Dollar's personality
and career that inspired the novel-
ist, Peter B. Kyne, to write many
stirring stories of trade at sea,
whose hero was "Cappy Ricks."
These rules Capt. Dollar kept
with the traditional tenacity of the
Scotsman, for he was Scotch by
birth, the son of a lumber dealer.
His father took to drink after the
death of Robert Dollar's mother,
and the young man determined
that he would never drink liquor. It
is largely because of this doggedi
resolution that the ships of the
Dollar lines, - although touchinng
some of the alcoholically wettest
spots on the globe, sold no liquor.
Old Tradition to Be Revived; Ball
Will Be Held From 10
to 3 o'Clock.

First Contest in History.
A freshman and a piece of cus-
tard pie went to the mat at the Phi
Kappa Sigma house last night and
the freshman, George Wolfe, '35A,
came out second best when his op-
ponefht got a head-lock on him and
sent him to the Health Service with
a dislocated jaw.
According to witnesses, Wolfe was
way ahead and victory seemed cer-
tain, when the pie-eating contest
being conducted among the Phi
Kappa Sigma neophytes was sud-
denly interrupted by the inability
of one of the principals to proceed.
Wolfe stood, witnesses declare, on
the brink of success, and the pie
hung on the brink of his gaping
Mumbling incoherently, it is al-
leged, he was transported to the in-
firmary, where it was not until his
molars snapped together with a re-
assuring click that he was again ar-
ticulate. Wolfe denied that he was
in pain. He is said to have won a
moral victory.

Winter Contacts.
Students interested in working
after the close of the season with
boys who attend the University
Fresh Air camp have been invited
to attend a meeting at 7:30 o'clock
tonight in Lane hall. Those inter-
ested in this sort of social work will
act as "big brothers" to boys sent

part in the camp work.
This is the second meeting of this
nature that has been held. Prof.
Ferdinand N. Menefee of the Engin-
eering college and George Alder,
next summer's head of the camp,
along with 15 students, was pres-
ent last week. Plans will be form-
ulated tonight as to methods of
contacting boys during the summer
and keeping in touch with them
during the following winter.
"One hundred Northwestern uni- I
versity students participate i n
weekly programs of this kind," said
Jule Ayers, '33, president of the
Student C h.r i s t i a n association
"They have their own settlement;
we hope to establish something
similar at Michigan."

Verner Becpmnes City Treasurer
After elay in Fixing
Salary of, Office.
The Common Council at its reg-
ular meeting last night unanimous-
ly adopted the city budget of $478,-
665.73 which was (prepared by the
budget committee and approved a
week ago by the council as a com-
mittee of the whole. It also passed
a resolution recommending a re-
duction of 15 percent in real estate
taxes; and confirmed the mayor's
appoin tment of William F. Verner
as city treasure]r.
Representatives of the Ann Arbor
Taxpayers' league, the Real Estate
board and the Manufacturers as-
sociation met with the budget com-
mittee and the rest of the council
before the council meeting to dis-
cuss further possible reductions of
$80,000, but no action was taken. It
was brought out that the appropri-
ation of $24,000 to the poor fund
would be supplemented by general
revenues during the year.
IDistribution Listed.
The budget as adopted is $90,509
lower than it 'was last year. $45,-
242 will be devoted to general ad-
ministration, $43,313 t o public
works, $30,701 to sanitation and
health, $182,380 to city funds, in-
cluding fire, police, poor relief,
streets, sidewalks and parks; $172,-
669.73 for fixed charges including
interest on bonds, and $2,360 for the
purchase of a city dumping ground
on Dewey street.
The resolution in regard to tax
reduction read as follows: "Resolv-
ed, that the common coumcil recom-.
mend that the city assessor make a
general reduction 15 percent, in.
the assessments of real estate in
the city."
Schlenker Favors Wurster.
The council approved William F.
Verner's appointment as city treas-
urer by a vote of nine to six. Alder-
men voting in his favor were Burr,
Hollands, Lucas, Winney, Paton,
Faust, Whaley, Young and McDon-
ald, while those opposed were
Schlenker, Kurtz, Thomas, Ager,
Staffan and Hoppe. The appoint-
ment had been delayed for weeks
due to the delay in fixing the treas-
urer's salary which was lowered
from last year's figure. Alderman
Schlenker declared the city should
reappoint Ernest M. Wurster, pres-
ent treasurer, at the former salary.
A petition signed by Alpha Zeta
club of Kappa Sigma asking that
the grade of the sidewalk abutting
on their prpperty be changed to
make possible a driveway from
Washtenaw avenue, was referred to
the sidewalk committee.

Suzuki to Become Party Leader
Today; Masaki Named
New Minister.
TOKYO, May 16.-(IP)-Kisaburo
Suzuki, home minister, accepted the
presidency of the Seiyukai (gov-
ernment) party today and thus
became virtually certain of suc-
ceeding the assassinated Suyoshi
Inukai as Japan's premier.
His informal agreement to fill the
late premier's place in the Seiyu-
kai's leadership averted dissensions
that threatened to split the ruling
party. Elder men of the party, who
decided to support him, persuaded
Takejiro Tokonami, railway min-
ister, another possible candidate,
to give up his ambition for the
presidency early today.
Mr. Suzuki will be formally in-
stalled as president of the party at
a mass meeting of the Seiyukai's
parliamentary members this after-
noon. It was taken for granted that
he would be the next premier in
accordarce with Japanese custom
which hands that post to the lead-
er of the dominant party.
Fascism Suffers.
Fascism in Japan apparently suf-
fered a setback when as a result of
Premier Inukai's assassination the
military council decided yesterday
to replace Gen. Sadao Araki, lead-
ing nationalist, as minister of war.
Lieut.-Gen. Jinzaburo Masaki, a
vice-chief of the army general
staff, was chosen by the military
council to take over the war port-
folio regardless of whether the
cabinet under Acting Premier Ko-
rekiyo Takahashi eventually stands
or falls.
Tokyo was guarded by police re-
serves against. a terror plot of 18
young army and navy cadets to
seize the capitol after its outbreak,
but it apparently had collapsed
with the assassination yesterday of
the 77-year-old premier, foe of
militarism and veteran represent-
ative of government in Japan, and
a series of shootings and bombings.

Captain Ryan and Bob Clarke
paired together to defeat Laevin

bles match after they had both
been beaten earlier by the same

Both teams displayed brilliant

FAIRBANKS, Alaska, May 16. -
(/P) - An expedition to "trap" the
cosmic ray on Mt. McKinley, high-

Continent, ended in the death of
Allen Carpe, 36 years old, New York
engineer, and Theodore Koven, 28,
a member of his party.
Word of their fate was telephon-

was returning from the first scal-
ing of both peaks of the huge
mountain, and the first successful
climb of the South Peak of McKin-
ley since that of Archdeacon Hud-
son Stuck and Harry Karstens in

serious injuries, but died of expos-
