Pr6ospective Release Of
Qther Banks' Reserves
Causes Optimism
WASHINGTON, March 21.-(A)-
Witll the Government matching dol-
lar for dollar with the General
Motors Corp. to raise $25,000,000 as
capital, there was created today the
National Bank of Detroit, a new in-
stitution to provide adequate banking
facilities for the Michigan city.
The new bank, the first formed
under President Roosevelt's Emer-
gency Bank Law, will take over part
of the assets of the First National
Bank-Detroit and the Guardian Na-
tional Bank of Commerce, assuming
also part of the deposits of both. The
remaining assets of the old banks
will be liquidated for the depositors
by the Comptroller of the Currency.
Announcement of the formation of
the bank was made in a joint state-
ment by Jesse H. Jones, a director
for t h e Reconstruction Finance
Corp., and Alfred P. Sloan, Jr., presi-
dent of General Motors. They said
the corporation had underwritten
$12,500,000 of the common stock of
the bank and had paid for it in cash
while the R. F. C. had subscribed for I
$12,500,000 of the preferred stock.
The news of the formation, the
most optirnistic for the city since
the declaration of a state-wide holi-
day by Gov. William A. Comstock
on Feb. 14, also drought optimism
to many out-state institutions, Re-
serves of several out-state banks
have been impounded in the Detroit
institutions sinpe the banking holi-
day.. Their release, officials said,
would lend, further impetus to trade
in Michigan.
The announcement from Washing-
ton that the R. '.C. and the General
Motors Corp.' had agreed to subscribe
the $25,000,00Q capitalization for the
banks, had been expected for several
days, following the beginning of ne-.
gotiatlons in Washington last week.
Large stockholders of the two local
banks had been in Washington since
last Saturday, in lengthy conference.

Art Motif Of '33 Book Is
Announced; Will Begin
Cainpus Sale Today
The cover of the 1933 Michiganen-
sian will be done in blue and gold
imitation leather of two grains, one
plain and the other morocco, John A.
Carstens, '33, business manager an-
nounced yesterday.
The art work in the yearbook will
be modeled after the designs of John
LaGatta in a rich blue and black
motif, he said. Another innovation in
this year's book will be having pairs
of opposite pages in the art section
co-ordinate with the exterior photo-
graph of a building on one page and
an interior view on the page facing.
A campus sale of the book will be
held today and tomorrow, Carstens
said, and after Saturday the 50 cent
stubs will no longer be worth $1 to-
ward the purchase of a book. They
will then be redeemable for their
purchase price.
By a new installment buying plan
recently adopted by the business staff
of the publication it is now possible
to pay $1.50 down now, $1.50 in April
and the remaining $1.50 in May. The
price of the book for those who do

not accept this offer will go up to
$5.00 after the present sale.

PARIS, March- 21.-(AP)-A stiff
fight is expected to develop at to-
morrow's meeting of the foreign af-
fairs committee of the Chamber of1
Deputies, which will take up a reso-
lution urging payment of the $19,-
000,000 war debt'interest which was
due the United States last December.
Deputies opposed to the resolution,
who are waging a vigorous fight
against it, assert that it would be
mistaken to take any action before
the attitude of President Roosevelt
toward debt revision is more definite-
ly known.
Edouard Herriot, whose govern-
ment fell because he insisted the Do-
cember payment should be made, and
who is leading the movement for
payment now, set forth his argu-,
ments before a group of Radical So-
cialist Deputies, He supported his
contentions by letters from New York
describing "the deplorable .effect" of,
the Chamber's refusal to pay on the
due date.I
At the same time Leon Blum, So-
Valist leader, told his party group
that they should continue to vote
againsthpayment until the govern-
. lent has been assured that Presi-
dent Roosevelt's attitude fulfills the
Chamber's condition that a general
conference of creditors and debtors
must be held.

Calls Michigan Income Cut
A 'heedless' Act In Talk
Over National Network
Declares Sales Tax
Is Only Alternative
Government Itself Will Be
Destroyed If New Funds
Are Not Found, He Says
Michigan's "heedlessness" in re-
ducing the general property tax from
3.5 per cent to 1.5 per cent and
thereby cutting the state's income
$100,000,000 was deplored last night
by Prof. Thomas H. Reed of the po-
litical science department in "Taxa-
tion Reform," a discussion broadcast
throughout the nation over the Blue
Network of the National Broadcast-
ing Company.'
"This procedure will destroy gov-
ernment itself unless some new
source of revenue is provided," Pro-1
fessor Reed said. "The Constitutional
amendment which accomplished this
slash was so framed as to make an
income tax almost certainly uncon-
stitutional. The only alternative,
then, is a sales tax-and I favor such
a tax for Michigan."
The speaker pointed out that a
sales tax is easily administered and
productive, although it is somewhat
harder on the poor than the rich.
While it may prove cumbersome to
the manufacturers and wholesalers
of the state where it is used, and may
injure one merchant and not an-
other, it can, over a limited time,
prevent economic disaster and keep
government afloat, Professor Reed
added.
The desperate plight of local gov-
ernment systems forced to rely on
a general real estate tax for their
revenue was also discussed by Pro-
fessor Reed.
"Something must be done to find
another revenue source for local
government," Professor Reed de-
clared. "The national government,
and to a lesser extent the state, can1
choose other taxation means, but the
local units can levy only the taxes
the state permits. A temporary sales
tax may be the solution."
Speaking with Professor Reed were

of New York State, and Mark Graves,

Work For 250,000 Men Is

Employment Bill
WASHINGTON, March 21.-(')-
Congress turned to work tonight on
a broad employment and relief pro-
gram, submitted by President Roose-
velt for the marshalling of imme-
diate jobs for about 250,000 men in
the Nation's forests.4
A bill authorizing the Government
to enlist the idle in the cities anda
put them to work in a thousand
camps of approximately 200 men
each was promptly introduced in the
Senate as the fifth of the Roosevelt1

emergency recommendations was re-I
ceived on Capitol Hill.'
The President informed Congress
that he would submit later his ideas
for grants to States for relief work
and for a broad public works labor-
creating program.
To get the funds for his proposed
Civilian Conservation Corps., Mr.
Roosevelt looked tonight to Director
of the Budget Lewis Douglas, who is
preparing the plan to carve out more
than $400,000,000 in savings from
Governntent salaries and veterans'
compensations which was authorized
in the Economy Act. An early report
on this is in prospect.
Members of the Conservation
Corps., who will be selected from the
centers of unemployment, are to be
paid $30 a month with food and
housing. Allotments are to be set
aside for the families of married
men.

forts of Michigan dry leaders to keep
the issue of federal prohibition re-

ended in the supreme court today.
In a brief order, the court denied
a petition for a writ of mandamus
to restrain the secretary of state.
from certifying on the April 3 ballots
the names of candidates for dele-
gates to a ratification convention
called for April 10. The court also
upheld the constitutionality of the
Heidkamp Act providing the machin-
ery for the convention.
Although the eurt conceded the
Keidkamp statute is "technically ir-
regular in some particulars," it
denied it was subject to "the general
objection urged against it," by dry
leaders in their petition.

The history of the banking prob-
len which led up to the present sit-
uation was sketched by Charles
Rogers, '34, president of Alpha Nu,
as an opening of their meeting last
night. He explained that the bank
failures between 1920 and 1929 were
those of small country institutions
whose main foundations were one
line of farm products. The reasons
for the failures which increased after
1929, he said, were the generosity of
states in granting charters to un-
sound banking policies, the failure
of sound banks because of deprecia-
tion in value of securities, and last,
panic and hoarding, he said.

Polish War Near
That the relations in the Polish
Corridor situation have become so
dangerous that war might easily be
precipitated by some incident such
as the injuring of a Pole by the Ger-
mans or a German by the Poles, was
the conviction expressed last night
by Howard B. Calderwood of the po-
litical science department at a dis-
,vussion meeting of the Adelphi House
of Representatives.
Mr. Calderwood also stated that it
is the German nation which is dis-
satisfied, the Poles being practically
content in maintaining the status
quo.

CINCINNATI, March 21.-(}P)-The
mad Ohio River and its tributaries
continued an unyielding assault upon
bankside cities in Ohio, Kentucky,
and Indiana tonight as the murky
torrent approached the Mississippi.
The crest of the flood rode hard
upori Cincinnati today while a score
or so of municipalities upon each
side of the peak water struggled to
care for many thousands of tempo-
rarily homeless.
The relief problem was the more
acute because winter had returned to
the valley. Although the cold blast
had curbed the heavy rain of the last
fortnight, it also made imperative the
need of food and shelter for the des-
titute.
The four-day-old flood had cost
nine lives and probably many mil-
lions in property. Ohio of llial s alone
said damage to bridges and highways
in this state was more than $1,000,-
000.
Such other centers as Newport,
Ky., Covington, Ky., Louisville, Madi-
son, Ind., and Portsmouth, 0., were
harassed by the climbing waters.
Two .dikes protecting part of .Cin-
cinnati's east end were threatened
seriously, and one of the* actially
gave way at an isolated pot, send-
ing torrents of water int ~an unused
portio of th Municipal Airport.
Meanwhile, erratic Mill Creek In
the west end of Cincinnati spread
backwaters into suburbs of the city
far from the Ohio.
The town of New Richmond, 0,,
ecared for its 1,500 resdents as best
it could, although only flie buildings
were left high and dry. Every road
but one to the outside world was im-
passable. The Cincinnati Red Cross
and National Guardsmen were di-
recting relief.

President Roosevelt was ready toI

the scheme of concentration pro-
grams included in the 1931 curri-
cular revision in the literary college
will be discussed at a meeting of de-
partment advisers and group com-
mittees at 4 p. m. Monday, it was
learned yesterday from Dean John
R. Effinger.
The concentration program was
initiated in the fall of 1931, when all
entering freshmen selected a definite
field for future work and occupied
their freshman and sophomore years
preparing for such specialization.
Next fall the actual concentration
work will be tried out forthe first
time, when all students with 60 hours
of credit and the proper prerequisites
will enter upon specialized courses of
study for their junior and senior
years.

'Marriage A Highly Specialized
Friendship Form'-Dean Lloyd

BATTLE CREEK, March 21.-Dr.
Paul F. Voelker, president of Battle
Creek college and Democratic can-
didate for the office of state super-
intendent of public instruction in the
spring election, today advocated the
elimination of freshman and soph-
omore subjects at the University of
Michigan as a means of state eco-
nomy in educational expenditures.
Dr. Voelker, who is well known
here and was prominently mentioned
for the University presidency at the
time of the Little resignation, said
that underclassmen could be sent
to private and denominational
schools for the first two years of
their educational careers.
Dr. Voelker also suggested that
Michigan State college be returned to
its old position as an agricultural
Zhpl, that Michigan College of
Mines curtail its activities and that
the county Normal schools be closed.
REPUBLICANS PLAN ATTACK
Republican workers in the city
election campaign agreed at a meet-

"Marriage," said Dean Alice C.,
Lloyd in a talk on "Cultural Aspects
of Marriage" last night at Lane Hall,
"Is a highly specialized form of !
friendship."
Claiming that her definition was
a very broad one indeed, she said,
"Culture is adding to our under-
standing. We are apt to think of
culture as refinement rather than
real understanding.

one interested in education to be
interested in the home," she stated
in emphasizing the importance of
good home for children.
Miss Lloyd urged the study of good
literature in the home, saying, "If
we have to wait until entering school
to enjoy literature, we loose a certain
spontaneous joy and interest in the
subject." Miss Lloyd told how the
