Bill Again Appears
Administration Gives Some
Support To Measure;
Would Bring Revenue
LANSING, March 23.-(P)--Imme-
diate beer legislation was blocked to-
day as Democratic floor leaders in-
sisted upon waiting for definite'
recommendations from a special
commission studying liquor control.
Despite administration opposition,
a stop-gap bill drafted by the attor-
ney general's department was for-
mally introduced in the house by.
Rep. Martin W. Baginski, (Dem., De-
troit). It was referred to the liquor
traffic comnlittee with indications
that it will be held there and that
no bill be reported until the commis-
sion makes its recommendation,
Another race track betting bill ap-
peared, this one with some adminis-
tration support. It was introduced by
Rep. William M. Donnelly, (Dem., De-
troit). A five-member racing corn-
mission would be established. In the
metropolitan area tracks would pay
the state $2,000 to $5,000 a day for
running races, 15 per cent of the
gate, 1 per cent of the amount bet,
and 2 per cent of the concession
yield. Out-state tracks would pay
$500 to $1,000 a day for running
horses. Fairs would be required to
pay only $25 a day for harness races.
All betting would be done in pari-
mutuel machines.
The House passed and sent to the
Senate the Schroeder bill grantingj
additional time for redemption of
land contracts. A month for every
year the contract has been in force
would be allowed. -

of the School of Music announced
yesterday. Miss Koshetz will take the
place of Lucrezia Bori whose stren-

necessitated that she return to Eu-

Mr. Koussevitzky, conductor of the

shetz the "Chaliapine in Petticoats,"
a nickname which has remained with
her, Rachmaninoff so greatly ad-

chose her to interpret many of his
songs, he himself playing the ac-

Special properties for the Hillel

These costumes are the original
ones used by the Habima Players in
Moscow which were stored during the
revolution and later bought by Max
neinhart,. Dmitri Komonosov, tech-
nical supervisor of the campus pro-
duction, sent for these. After the
Hillel Players have used them for

are actual copies of the beards used

were allowed to grow beards. Thus
the ages of the men were denoted by
the length of their beards. There are

Professor Praises Action
Of Government
The public should have implicit
faith in the reopened banks, accord-
ing to Prof. R. G. Rodkey of the
School of Business Administration.
Professor Rodkey said that in his
estimation the plan that the govern-
ment has finally adopted is superior
to the plan for 100 per cent deposit
guaranty proposed by five membersC
of the University faculty. He pointed
out that it guaranties the deposits of
only sound banks.
Professor Rodkey is one of the five
men who drew up the proposal and
one of the three who were called to
Washington, presumably by Presi-
dent Roosevelt, for a conference
prior to the passing of the emer-
gency banking legislation.
Only Sound Banks Opened
The Treasury department has in-
vestigated and has opened only those
banks which are perfectly sound so
that the banks which are now opened
cannot close. 70 per cent of the to-
tal number of banks, holding 80 per
cent of the total deposits, are now
opened and operating as in normal
times. Four thousand banks are still
Section one of the new bank act
gives the Federal government power
over state banks, even those which
are not members of the Federal Re-

act makes this constitutional, Pro-
fessor Rodkey stated.
Bondds Same as Cash
An extremely strategic provision, in
Professor Rodkey's opinion, makes
refinancing very easy. The Federal
Reserve system is permitted to make'
loans to individuals as well as cor-
porations'on the strength of govern-
ment bonds, the price of which will
be kept at or near par. Government
bonds are the same as cash except
that they bear interest.
Professor Rodkey said that the
permanent banking legislation will
quite likely go further in the legal-
ization of branch banking than has
been done in the past. A provision

Student Reaction

'It_ will be interesting to see how
student audiences will react to a mu-

ferent calibre as far as dealing with
college life is concerned," stated Ma-
rian Giddings,'34, author of "Love

ior Girls' Flay, after the opening per-
formance yesterday.
"Due to the magnificent co-opera-

Russell McCracken, and Maxwell
Gail and hisorchestra, we believe
the play will be a success through-
out its run the remainder of this{
week," Miss Giddings continued.
"Credit is also due to Jacobson's
store for the use of dresses by the
three Amevican girls in Scene 4, and
to Mack and Co. for formal gowns
worn in Scene 7 by the Girls' chorus.
The committee on costumes and thej
cast and chorus members wish to ex-
tend their appreciation to these
establishments for this courtesy,"
Miss Giddings added.

More Stable Banks
Watkins Reiterates His
Charge That Depositors
Are Being Sold Out
DETROIT, March 23.-(A)-The
Rev. Father Charles E. Coughlin,
pastor of the Shrine of the Little
Flower in an address tonight which
he said he had been requested by
President Roosevelt and Secretary
Woodin of the treasury to present,
replied to arguments of Police Com-
missioner James K. Watkins against
acceptance by Detroit of a plan now
under way to resume banking opera-
tions here.
Watkins in an address last night
assailed the plan as one which would
give eastern capital control over the
Detroit banking system, and declared
that it would work hardship on
many depositors whose money in the
banks would be used to offset obli-
gations there. Watkins spoke again
tonight, reiterating his charges of
last night that the' city was being
sold from under the depositors' feet.
Father Coughlin in his address
stressed the importance of resump-
tion of banking facilities, and the
ending of difficulties in the wake of
continued paralysis of the city's fi-
nancial system. He declared that the
terming by Watson of the plan as
an "outside plan" was incorrect, and
suggested the term "United States
plan." He pointed out th]t the Fed-
eral government, under the prescnt
plan by which a single new bank is
to open here tomorrow morning, will

"It has been called aMorgan con-
trolled bank," Father Coughlin said,
"but according to Lawrence P. Fisher,
the Morgans own and control less
than three per cent of the stock of
General Motors.'
Father Coughlin pointed out that
common stock in the enterprise is
available to the general public. "Gen-
eral Motors officials have said that
they have no intention of remaining
in the banking business," he de-
