Announcement that Ann Arbor
banks would open for the withdrawal
of limited sums brought a note of
optimism in the city as the Comstock
moratorium passed into its third day.
Under special police guard, the
four local banks will be opened today
to permit withdrawals at a maximum
rate of $20 per family. Student with-
drawals will also be honored to $20.
This limitation will remain in force
until the end of the holiday, no daily
duplications being allowed. Checks
will not be cashed, except those
drawn upon individual accounts by
the depositors themselves and these
kvill be subject also to the $20 limit.
No disorder is anticipated at the
opening, the police guard being main-
tained only as a special precaution.
Ann Arbor policemen will be pressed
into extra service, one being stationed
at each bank. Local officials of the
Communist party said that there
would be no demonstration of any
mind as, far as they were concerned.
It was said that they were "not in-
terested, since they had no money in
the banks."
Local chain store managers re-
ceived orders to cash personal checks
only, with the exception of small
pay checks amounting to no more
than a few dollars. They were cau-
tioned, however, to exercise special
care in the cashing of checks.
"The decision to open the banks
was reached at a meeting of the Ann,
Arbor Clearing House Association.
Deposits, it was decided, would not
be accepted, but persons wishing to
place their money in the banks would
be allowed to place it in trust.

The measures, designed to expand
government aid in liquidating depre-

mitted to Washington with an ur-
gent request that they be rushed
through during the remaining six
days of the bank holiday.
All Detroit banks remained closed

Comstock Lets Bankers
Work Out Own Troubles
LANSING, Feb. 15.-(A)-Governor
Comstock today adhered to his deci-
sion to permit the bankers in each
community to work out their own
problems "providing they stay within
sensible bounds.'. He left tonight for
Detroit to confer informally with fi-
nanciers there.
The governor was besieged with
telephone and personal calls from
city and village bankers. Some pro-
tested that he should enforce his
moratorium proclamation to prohibit
the proposed agreement by Detroit
bankers to allow 5 per cent with-
drawals of deposits and to force all
banks to remain tightly closed.
Others suggested the moratorium be
lifted altogether.
The governor's reply in each case
w as :
"Ini townls where the banks feel
they can and should permit small
withdrawals for household necessi-
ties or to meet pay rolls, I will not
interfere. In others where it would
be inadvisable they may remain'
closed. The holiday proclamation
gives them the protection they need
so they may pursue either course."
A delegation claiming to represent
about 60 banks conferred with the,
governor late today. Former State
Senator William F. Turner, of Mor-
ley, and Charles Laesch, of Lapeer,
were among them.
