Drug Stores Vary
Of the several drug stores, one an-
nounced flatly that it would give no
credit and cash no checks. Another
said that it had been "liberal" but'
was planning to scale down "credit

pus chain store said that he would
grant credit as usual. One eating
house stated that it had established
a $1 check policy. A merchant ad-
vocated the transfer of customers'
debts to the banks in lieu of mer-
chants' debts. The idea of commer-
cial scrip is gaining ground.

such establishment said that he

Union Program
Youthful Russian Pianist
Is Colleague Of Milstein,
Violinist Here Last Fall+
The appearance of Vladimir Horo- 1
witz, youthful Russian pianist, will
serve as a natural complement to the
earlier performance of Nathan Milu-
stein, Russian violinist, at 8:15 p. m.
tomorrow in Hill Auditorium, repre-1
sentatives of the University Musical
Society said yesterday.
Exponent of modern interpretation
of music, Horowitz, who will present
the ninth concert of the Choral
Union series, is ranked as one of the
three .outstanding musical products
of the Soviet regime in Russia; his
two colleagues,, the violinist Milstein
and the cellist Piatagorsky, have been
assqeiated closely with him through-
out his life. Milstein appeared here
this year in an earlier concert. :
Horowitz made his American debut
on Jan. 12, 1928, with the New York
Philharmonic Orchestra, and was?
termed "the most successful concert
artist to appear before the American
public since the debuts of Heifltz andi
Galli-Curci." Thirty-six concerts inj
88 days followed, including 19 ap-
pearaances with orchestra.
The following program has been

Dietitians' Supervision;
Many Students Aided
MADISON, March 4.-(Big Ten)-
Three meals - breakfast, luncheon,
and dinner-at a total cost of be-
tween 53 and 58 cents a day, is the
contribution of the University of Wis-
consin Union to the campaign for
lower living costs for students at-
tending the state universitydhere.
Serving good food prepared underI
a staff of home economics dietitians,
the prices are called the lowest in
existence here at any time. The cost
of the breakfast is estimated at eight
cents, luncheon at from 20 to 25
cents, and dinner at 25 cents.
Menus for these meals are prepared
and approved by dietitians at the
university and the aim is stated to
be to give students .good, substantial
food that is needed by the human
body. ,Since the lower rates went into
effect this year it has been learned
that the saving has enabled many
students to remain in the university
who otherwise would have been
forced to drop out.
With prices for daily board at this
low level, and with room prices in
the university district ranging from
$1.50 to $2.50 a week, student living

Face Present Aldermati
In Seventh Ward Race
Two city contests on the Republi-
can ticket and one major ward fight
face Ann Arbor voters when they
go to the polls in the annual spring
primary tomorrow.
Robert A. (Uncle Bob) Campbell,
former treasurer of the University,
and John Neelands, local merchant
and member of the board of educa-
tion, will oppose each other for the
Republican mayoral nomination. Mr.i
Campbell has had previous experi-
ence in the mayor's office. The win-
ner of this contest will be opposed1
by Rolla N. Frisinger, Democratic
nominee, in the April election.
A three-cornered tussle for the
G. 0. P. city clerk nomination will 9
also feature the vote. The candidates |
are Fred Perry, incumbent; Clara-
mon L. Pray, former county clerk
and the only Republican defeated in;
the county last fall; and L. L. Grif-1
fiths, secretary of the Taxpayers'
The only other important contest
will be in the seventh ward where the
incumbent alderman, George Whaley,
has the opposition of Dean Walter
C. Sadler of the engineering college.
All of the contests are on the Repub-
lican ticket, complete harmony pre-
vailing in Democratic ranks. The So-
cialist party will also present a ticket
in the April vote.
Two minor Republian contests
also face the voters: 'Herbert L. Ken-
nett vs. Fred G. Moehn, 2nd ward
supervisor; and Charles N. Harmon
vs. Floyd Hamacher, third ward con-
stable. Democratic ballots are being
issued for justice of the peace since'

and Louis Gomberg has signified his
intention of running on stickers. Bal-
lots for alderman are also available
in the fifth ward Democratic pri-
mary, no candidate having been
named for the office in that ward.l
Voters will have an opportunity to
"write in" names for the nomination.

in Justice Court yesterday morning,,
Byron Meggison and Harold Shuey,,
Ypsilanti, charged with abduction,;
were placed under $2,500 bond and
ordered to appear for trial March 14.

are married, offered to drive Helen
Gabourae 22 years old and her sister
Gwendolyn, 18 years old, both of Yp-

taking the girls to their destination,
the men parked on a side road, and,

cussed a possibility of a 50 per, cent
federal guaranty of bank deposits.,
Although the restrictions prevailed
in 48 states and the District of Co-
lumbia, there were many communi-
ties-even in states having bankingJ
holidays-where financial business
was conducted as usual.
In only once instance was a bank
reported closed by force. That was
in Enid, Okla., where national
guardsmen enforced Gov. William H.
Murray's mandatory closing procl-
mation on the First National Bank.
The first thought of business in
general was to provide sufficient cash
for pay rolls and routine expense.
Although nine-tenths of business
normalcy is transacted by check-

where-no cities reported serious cur-
tailment in commercial and indus-
trial activities.
The New York Stock Exchange and
the Chicago Board of Trade, largest
trading organizations respectively in
securities and grain futures, were
closed and so were smaller markets
of the kind. Livestock and cash grain
markets remained open, but transac-
tions were at lower volume.

Dean Griffin Advocates Federal
Guarantee Of Bank Deposits

Necessity for an unequivocal 100
per cent guarantee of bank deposits
made by the Federal government, and
for all banks, state or national, in
the United States, was emphasized
yesterday by Dean Clare E. Griffin of
'the School of Business Administra-
tion, in an interview wherein he re-
iterated and clarified the plan which
was recently drawn up by a commit-
tee of five University economists and
sent to Washington.
It was ' stressed by Dean Griffin
that the plan is meant merely as a
temporary measure, designed to con-
tinue only as long as it may be nec-
essary to lift banking credit out of
its present straits. It was further

"We consider this a alternative to
inflation. Nevertheless, such a plan
might lead to a rise in the price.
level, because it will make the banks
more free to lend money."
Asked how large a fund would be
needed in order to guarantee bank
deposits -to the amount of 100 per
cent, Dean Griffin said, "Nobody can'
answer that, but our theory is that
not a great deal of money will be
necessary. The people will not create
a run on the banks if they know that
they can get their money any time
they want it. There has been no run,
for example ,on the Postal Savings

promised by the new president, al- 1
though a few indicated a skepticism
of how the promised reforms would
be carried out. A majority of those
interviewed praised the inaugural ad-
dress for its courage and indication
of sincerity.
Dr. Frederick B. Fisher, pastor of
the Methodist Episcopal church, ex-
pressed the general opinion in the
following words: "I thought the ad-
dress especially fine. It indicated a
real grasp of the present crisis, espe-
cially of national issues. I didn't feel
that he had a full grasp, however, of
international problems. The address
dealt mainly with national problems.
I thought that it was really great.
Fr. Thomas R. Carey, pastor of St.
Thomas Catholic church, said: "If
we are to get out of the present wil-
derness of indecision and despair,
President Roosevelt must lead the{
way. His inaugural address has
struck a hopeful note. We should all
earnestly pray God to give him the
vision and courage that he will sorely
need for this stupendous task."
A doubt as to what line President
Roosevelt's reforms would follow was
expressed by Mayor H. Wirt Newkirk.
"Nobody can tell what his plans are.,
He will do the best he can but he
has outlined no plan. He doesn't
know what he will do and I don't

functional and social-and suggest
alternatives. The historic relation-1
ship of suicide and religion will be
treated, together with the possible
influence of the modern skepticism
of a life after death.

Wood of the department of sociology,
recently returned from Europe, will
discuss the political and social issues
of modern Germany.
