LANSING, March 18. -(P) - At-
tacking the method of choosing dele-
gates, Michigan Prohibition forces
moved today to halt the election
April 3 of delegates to a state con-
vention to act on the proposed re-
peal of the Eighteenth Amendment.
Attorneys for Luren D. Dickinson,,
president of the Michigan Allied
Forces for Prohibition and former
lieutenant-governor, filed a petition
with the State Supreme Court ask-
ing a writ of mandamus to restrain
Secretary of State Frank D. Fitz-
gerald from ordering the election
of delegates. The petition challeng-
ed the constitutionality of the Heid-
kamp bill, the legislative act provid-
ing the machinery for the conven-
tion, which has been called for April
It was announced that the court
would consider the petition Monday.
The petition holds the Senate act
providing for the election and the
convention unconstitutional 'because
the electors of the state are. deprived
of their elective franchise in the,
nomination and election of delegatesa
to the convention under the proced-
ure authorized in the act; because
the electors are deprived of equality
in the selection of delegates; because;
in some sections of the state the
voters vote for but one deleghte,
while in others they vote for two or

To Settle Difference;
Hope For Speedy Action
WASHINGTON, March 18.-(/P)-~
Congressional leaders claimed with
confidence tonight that the bill to'
legalize beer will be agreed to Mon-
day, in time for President Roosevelt
to sign it by nightfall.
Success in that plan will depend
on extraordinarily fast action Mon-
day morning, since Senate and House
must compromise wide differences
and have yet to make a start, offi-
cially, on that agreement. But the
assurance with w h i c h Speaker
Rainey and Senator Harrison of Mis-
sissippi, in charge of the measure on
his side of the Capitol, predicted
quick approval, led many to believe
that a solution had already been
If signed Monday night, the meas-
tre will permit the sale of real legal
beer by Tuesday, April 4. But the
organized drys, fighting every step

of the way against relaxation of pro-
bition, announced plans today to
try by court injuniction to block sale,

the Council, as the three-day ses-

P lan To Beat Cash
Bly 'Ens ia. Staff
A plan to beat the cash scarcity
was announced yesterday by John A.
Carstens, '33, business manager of,
the 'Ensian.
Cash is still scarce, despite the re-
opening of the banks, so members of
the 'Ensian business staff have
worked out a deferred payment plan
which will not only save the students
money in buying the yearbooks,
but also will stretch out the pay-
ments until May. Under the new
plan there will be three payments of
$1.50; one now, the next at the be-j
ginning of next month, and the final
one in May, bringing the total cost
to $4.50. All books not purchased on
this plan will cost $5.
The 'Ensian staff took a holiday
when Gov. William A. Comstock
made his proclamation closing the
banks. Work has been resumed,
however, and the year book will be
out on schedule, Carstens said.
