3.2 Beer Bill
Abrupt Reception Given
To Governor's Measure
Presages Much Delay
Hope For Beer in
Two Weeks Fading
Lawmakers' S e n t imein en ts
Overwhelningly Favor
Providing Open Sale
LANSING, April 4.-(/P)-Gov. Wil-
liam A. Comstock's beer bill was
tossing Tuesday night on stormy leg-
islative seas, with members of the
Senate Prohibition Committe deter-
mined to rewrite many of its essen-
tial details,
The abrupt reception given the
measure when it was introduced
early in the afternoon by Se. An-
thony J. Wilkowski, of Detroit, indi-
cated' that the Governor's hope of
legal beer in this State in two weeks
will be short-lived. Another contro-
versy such as that which tied up the
cxnergency banking legislation for
five weeks was in prospect.
Open Sale Favored
The dispute, however, will not en-
danger Governor Comstock's plan for
"beer gardens" and sale of the bev-
erage by the glass in restaurants,
hotels and roadhouses. Sentiment
among the lawmakers is overwhelm-
ingly in favor of open sale as long
:isimbibers do their drniking at
tables instead of at bars. The ma-
hogany counter and its brass rail
are in distinctly bad repute, even
though the measure declares 3.2 beer
and wine to be non-intoxicating,
prima facie evidence to the contrary
notwithstandng.
Of the five members of the Sen-
ate Prohibition Committee, which is
in control of the bill for the present,
only Sen. Leo G. Karwick, of Detroit,
wasksatisfied with Governor Corn-
stock's recommendations.b-'
3+ven the inroducer of the ill
found many faults. After arguing for
two 'hours .Tuesday afternoon, the
committee adjourned until Wednes-
day morning, when the rewriting
task will be undertaken.
Objections Voiced
Principal objections voiced during
the first discussion were that the
measure sets up a patronage organi-
zation by providing for from 50 to
150 inspectors; that the proposed tax
of $1.25 a barrel on beer is excessive
in view of, the Federal levy of $5 a
barrel; that the license fees propose
are in some instances too high and
in others too low; that it attempts
illegally to fix the price of beer andj
food, and that it sets up a costly
warehousing system that is not
necessary,
Criticism extended even to the ad-
visory committee that wrote the bill
for the Governor. Senator Adolph F.'
Hidkamp, of Lake Linden, a former
vice-president of a brewery, said that
the 17 members of the group "know
nothing about the beer business or
its merchandising problems." Sen-
alors William F. Doyle, of Menomi-
nee, and Francis A. Kulp, of Battle
Creek, nodded their heads in agree-
ment. Senator Wilkowski defended
the committee, declaring the mem-
bers went into the subject thoroughly
before drafting the bill.
The argument became so noisy at
one time that Senator Wilkowski was
compelled to quiet the committee by
pointing out that he was the only
member who had read the measure
and knew its provisions.

Take Petitions
Protesting Cut
To Governor
3,000 Students Express!
Disapproval Of Action
Anticipated By State
LANSING, April 4.-(Special)-A
petition, signed by more than 3,000
University students, protesting the
proposal to cut the University appro-
priation from the State by more than
50 per cent was presented to Gov.
William A. Comstock today by a com-
mittee of student leaders.
Governor Comstock, without com-
ment on the petition, -indicated that
he would pass it on to the Legislature
for its action.
The petition, which has been spon-
sored by. Michigamua, Sphinx, the
National Student League, and The
Daily was received with an almost
unanimous appf'oval from all stu-
dents on the campus who were asked
to sign.
The appropriations cut, according
to Rep. Philip C. Pack (Rep., Ann
Arbor), is really more than the bill
reducing it would lead onesto believe,
since the amount of taxes that are
to be collected this year will probably
be less than last year,,and the Uni-
versity's levy is a certain portion, de-
termined by law, of the total amount
of taxes collected.
The original plan of offering the
petition to the University Committee
of the Legislature when they were in
meeting here Monday was abandoned
at the last minute because it was be-
lieved that more weight would be at-I
tached to it if it came from the
g overnor.
The question of the University ap-
propriation will come before the Leg-
islature as the special order to busi-
ness on April 11, during Spring Va-
cation, and students-have been plan-
ning to attend the session.

Akron Lost Its Control
Rudder; Naval Court Of
Inquiry Seems Assured
(By The AssocIated Press)
Caught in a sudden storm, with
lightning breaking on all sides, the
U. S. Navy dirigible Akron crashed
into the Atlantic early Tuesday, kill-
ing 73 officers and members of the
crew. Three of the personnel were
rescued and are alive. Only two
bodies had been found last night.
Flying to the scene, off the coast
of New Jersey, the U. S. Navy non-
rigid airship J-3 also fell into the
ocean. Five of the crew of seven were
rescued but the commander, who was
found in the sea, died later and the
body of a member of the crew was
recovered.
One of the two planes which M~on-
day flew over Mt. Everest was forced
down in an attempt to fly over a
nearby peak. First reports said none
were killed.
The small French dirigible E-9 was
forced to land in France, injuring
two.
Rear Admiral William A. Moffett,
chief of the naval bureau of aeron-
autics, was aboard the Akron and
was missing, as were Commander
Frank C. McCord, in charge of the
dirigible, and 16 other officers. Lieut
Comm. Herbert V. Willey, second in
command of the Akron and the only
officer rescued, declared the dirigible
began to lose altitude in the storm,
falling despite the release of more
ballast. Then it lost its control rud-
der and was demolished as it hit the
sea.

A naval court of inquiry was as-
sured, and a Congressional investi-
gation was understood as certain.
Chairman Vinson of the House
Naval Committee said: "There won't
be any more big airships built-we've
built three and lost two."
Secretary of the Navy Swanson
said: "It is still too early to outline
the navy's future policy on aircraft."
President Roosevelt described the
crash of the Akron as a "national
tragedy," and sent Assistant Secre-
tary of the Navy Henry Lathrofe
Roosevelt by airplane to the scene to
assist in the search for survivors.

Concert Tonioht
Borghi Concerto Will Be

Band For First Time
Music lovers of Ann Arbor and
vicinity are expected to fill Hill Au-
ditorium tonight for the second 1933
concert of the Varsity Band, under
the direction of Prof. Nicholas D.
Falcone.
Several facts about the feature solo
of the night's program make it one
that is regarded with considerable
interest in professional and non-pro-
fessional circles. The number is
Borghi's "Piano Concerto in D ma-
I jor." This is the first time the con-
certo has been played indoors bya
military band, only one other band
in the world-that at Michigan State
College-has played it, and it is the
' first piano solo ever played on a
Varsity Band program. Prof. Joseph
Brinkman of the School of Music
will be the solo artist.
Prof. Leonard Falcone, director of
the M.S.C. band and brother of the
Michigan bandmaster, arranged the
concerto for band accompaniment
and also arranged Ravel's "Bolero,"
which closes the program.
