Action On
Beer Bill
Senate Adjourns Without
Waiting For Final Vote
Of House On Measure
House Plans Action
In Special Session
Passage During Day Pre-
vented By Necessity For
LANSING, April 25.-(')-Action
toward legalizing beer and wine in
Michiggn was delayed another day
as the Senate adjourned tonight
without waiting for the administra-
tion liquor control bill.
The House, in a special night ses-
sion, planned to push the measure
to a final vote. Sen. Joseph C. Foster
(Rep., Lansing), told the Senate
there was no assurance the House
would complete consideration of the
bill and adjournment was ordered.
If the bill is passed by the House it
will be sent to the Senate for a vote
The bill emerged from the House
liquor traffic committee early Tues-
day, but it was so badly jumbled
with amendments and changes in
phraseology it was ordered reprinted.
This prevented action during the day.
Democratic leaders were hopeful a
compromise. had been reached that
would' permit enactment. To please
a bloc of Republican senators who
insisted upon home rule, the House
committee wrote in a provision re-
quiring applicants for vendors licen-
ses to have certificates of character
from local police chiefs "or other of-
ficials designated by local governing
bodies." T h e mandate, however,
would not apply to Wayne County.
Mmbers afrom there appeared to be
willing to let licensIng remain com-
pletely in the hands of the State
liquor control commission,
If the bill is adopted in its pres-,
ent form the first gush of 3.2 beer
in Michigan may be in Detroit and
Wayne county. Not bound by re-
quirements to grant licenses only to
thcse with certificates of character
the State commission could immed-
iately allow certain establishments to
sell the new brew. Governor Com-
stock plans to appoint the State com-
mission as soon as he signs the bill,
and he favors the granting of provi-
sional licenses as soon as the organi-
zation is completed.
At igh Schoolt
Debate F als
Program Of Short Num-
bers Planned For Con-
cert Friday Night
The Varsity Band, under the direc-
tion of Prof. Nicholas D. Falcone,
will give its customary brief concert
complimentary to the Michigan
Schoolmasters Club and the mem-
bers of the State championship high
school debate teams at 7:30 p. m.
Friday in Hill Auditorium, imme-

diately preceding the Manistique-
Flint Northern high schools debate.
Professor Falcone has chosen an
unusual program of brief numbers
for the concert, which will begin
with the entrance of the band,
marching to "The Victors." The pro-
gram will open with the American
premiere of Donatelli's "Symphonic
March, Opus 37." Professor Fal-
cone, who was a student under Don-
atelli in Italy, possesses the original
manuscript to this march and it is
from copies of this manuscript that
the Varsity Band will play. As far
as is known no other copies exist in
the United States.
Some Michigan songs and military
marches may be included in the pro-
gram, depending on the exact time
at which the debate will start, but
the following four numbers, as well
as the Donatelli march, form the
tentative program: Monti: "Czar-
das" (arranged for band by Ray-
mond E. Renneke, '33); Pierne:
chorale, "A l'Eglise, Opus 3" (ar-
ranged for band by Bernard B.
Hirsch, Grad.); Rimsky-Korsakov:

Grave doubts as to the constitu-
tionality of the city charter amend-
ment which prohibits the sale of
spiritous liquors east of the Division
Street line of demarcation were ex-
pressed yesterday by Harold D.
Smith, director of the Michigan
Municipal League. Mr. Smith be-
lieves that the charter amendment
may not be in harmony with the
State constitutional amendment pro-
viding for the establishment of a
liquor control commission.
The charter amendment may also
conflict with the proposed State beer
bill, he said.
The regulation which at present
prohibits Ann Arbor's East Siders
and the Union and State Street mer-
chants from selling 3.2 per cent beer
if and when it is legalized by the
State Legislature, reads in part: "...
that no person shall keep a saloon
or other place except a drug store,
where any spiritous, malt, brewed,
fermented, vinous, or intoxicating
liquors are sold, or kept for sale, at
wholesale, or at retail, in all that

part of the city of Ann Arbor lying
south and east of the following de-
scribed line: Beginning on Fuller
Street at the city limits of said city,
and running thence westerly along
Fuller Street to Detroit Street;
thence southwesterly along Detroit
Street to Division Street, thence
south on Division Street and Divi-
sion Street as extended south to the
city limits south of said city of Ann
But the amendment to the State
Constitution as passed last year may
invalidate this,.Mr. Smith points out.j
Section 11 of the amendment, estab-
lishing a liquor control commission,
provides that:
"The Legislature may by law es-
tablish a liquor control commission,
who, subject to statutory limitations,
shall exercise complete control of the
alcoholic beverage traffic within this
State, including the retail sales there-
of; and the Legislature may also pro-
vide for an excise tax on such sales:

Start To Take
Senior Orders
For Programs

Applications For
mencement Inv
Must Be In ThisI


Orders for 1933 senior commence-
ment programs and invitations will
be taken during the next three days,
it was announced last night by Wal-
ter B. Rea, assistant to the dean of
students. All schools and colleges of
the University will begin taking or-
ders today except the College of Lit-
erature, Science, and the Arts, theE
College of Engineering, and the Med-
ical School, which start tomorrow.
The programs are bound in dark
blue leather with a cover design in
gold leaf. Engravings of five promi-
nent buildings, the schedule of com-
mencement events, the names of
class officers and committeemen, the
roll of the senior class, and a list of
faculty members and administrative
officers will be included on the pro-
grams. The programs are also avail-'
able in white cardboard covers, or on
the ordinary sheet paper.
Orders for the invitations will be
taken only during the remainder of
this week, after which time it will
be impossible to procure them, it was
said. Those who are in charge of
receiving orders in the College of
Architecture are Carl E. Riemen-
schneider, '33A, and P a u 1 D.
Mathews, '33A; in the School of
Business Administration, Lawrence

Shaky Diplomacy Is
Scored By Dawson
Ambiguity of the positions taken
by the major European powers and
the United States is the key to the
failure of all attempted international
conciliation, said Prof. John P. Daw-
son of the Law School in a talk last
night before the Adelphi House of

Negotiations continued between
members of the scrip committee and
representatives of industry, business,
and the professions for direct sale
of sufficient scrip to give cash for
some of the overdue payrolls and to
stablize the entire issue of $8,000,-
Police Will Get $310,000
Supt. Frank Cody announced that
the Board of Education payroll to-
taling approximately $970,000 has
been prepared by placing scrip in
the pay envelopes of teachers, prin-;
cipals and other employees.
Commissioner James K. Watkins
said that distribution of $310,000
to policemen would start in precinct
stations as the platoons report. The
fire department payroll of $150,000
will be met in a similar manner,
Chief Walter Israel said. Other exe-
cutives said they would do likewise.,
Representatives .of large taxpay-
ers told Frank N. Isbey, chairman
of the scrip committee, that the re-
lease of $1,800,000 in scrip !or wide-R
spread circulation complicates the
original'proposal to place the cer-
tificates in the hands of taxpayers.j
Another Parley Wednesday
"If a large taxpayer buys $250,000
worth of scrip with which to meet
his tax bill," said John L. Lovett,
general manager of the Michigan
Manufacturers' A s s o c i a t i o n, "he
should not be called on to take more
scrip in exchange for his product."
Another meeting will be held this
morning between city officials, in-
dustrialists, businessmen and repre-
sentatives of the scrip committee.
An effort will be mace to formulate
a uniform plan of redemption. If
that is accomplished, representatives
of industry stated, they will subscribe
to a sufficient amount of scrip to
stablize the entire issue of $8,000,000.

Beer Monopoly Wai.
MILWAUKEE, Wis., April 25.-
(k') - Increasing difficulties beset
the five-cent glass of beer, which
is fighting for a place in Wiscon-
Windows were broken at the
taverns of Joseph Cegelski, Mar-
tin Kwitek, and Sebastian Dela-
ruelle in Green Bay last night.
Later, they told the police, they
were asked to join the Brown
County Tavern Operators Asso-
ciation, members of which were
retailing beer for 10 cents a glass.
Wenzel Wiesner, president of the
association, denied that the asso-
ciation tolerated terrorist methods
and said that hoodlums misusing
the name of the organization were

and public libraries, today advanced
efforts of the new regime to "Ger-
manize" cultural life in the Reich.
A conflict involving Edward Kohl-
rausch, rector magnificus of Berlin
University, reached the point late to-
day where Nazi siudents demanded
his resignation.
The trouble started when 12 theses,
or pronouncements, against "un-
German spirit" were displayed on a
bulletin board and the rector ob-
jected to two of the pronouncements,
namely that "Whenever a Jew writes
German he lies," and "We demand
that Jewish works appear in Hebrew;
if they appear in German they must
be labeled translations."
In a campaign against books in
state and public libraries consider-
ed harmful because they are Marx-
ist or "un-German," a committee has
prepared a black list of books which
will be collected and burned cere-
moniously as a "symbolic act."
Students in Kiel University alone
collected 2,000 "objectionable" vol-
umes. Today they demanded the re-
moval of 28 Jewish and "undesirable"
professors from the university.
The Prussian minister of educa-
tion today dismissed 18 professors in
Frankfurt University, six in Gottin-
gen University, and two in Marburg
"because they are- Jews or Leftists."
In the chess word in which so
many Jews have been promirent, all
German chess clubs and societies
have been amalgamated into one
federal "Grossdeutsche Seachbund"
headed by a Nazi, Herr Pruske.
In Oberammergau, famed through-
out the world for its Passion Play,
the election will determine whether
the Nazis will have control of the
future plays in the village.

Local Privileges Cut
NEW YORK, April 25.-(AP)-Mem-
bers of the Associated Press, in an-
nual meeting, passed a resolution
that no news distributed by the or-
ganization be given to radio chains.
The resolution also provided that
no member newspaper shall be per-
mitted to broadcast either its local
or Associated Press news other than
brief bulletins. The directors were
empowered to fix assessments to be
paid by member papers who do such
broadcasting. The resolution directed
that this revenue be applied to a
pro-rata reduction of assessments of
non-broadcasting members.
The members elected five directors.
Two, George B. Longan, of the Kan-
sas City (Mo.) Star, and L. K. Nich-
olson, of the New Orleans (La.)
Times-Picayune, are new directors.
Three were re-elected: Col. Robert

une; W. H. Cowles, of the Spokane

Dog-Race Betting Is
Legalized By House
LANSING, April 25.--')-Despite
Governor Comstock's warning that
he will veto any bill legalizing betting
on dog races, the House today passed
such a measure.
Charges that racketeers would
benefit from "fly-by-night" dog
tracks went unheeded. The Jarvis
bill, authorizing both horse and dog
racing and pari-mutuel pool betting,
slid through by a vote of 52 to 41.
Go Militaristic
For War Play
Stagecraft classes in Play Produc-
tion have turned toward militarism
and warfare during the past week
in preparation for R. C. Sherriff's
thundering war-time epic, "Journey's
End," one of the two spring offerings
which will bring to a close Play Pro-
duction's dramatic season. The play
will open a week from today, and will
run for four days.
"The stagecraft classes are striving
to create on their stage an exact re-
production of an officer's dugout in
the trenches," Valentine B. Windt,
director, said yesterday. Members
of the classes are scouring Ann Arbor
and the city armory for all possible
information concerning c o s t u m e s,
uniforms, and weapons of warfare,
and their correct use. Complete stud-
ies of warfare tactics and machines
are being made by the students, ac-
cording to Mr. Windt.

Fund Drain Is
Dean Bursley
Largest Assessment To Be
Made During Last Six
Weeks, He Shows
Disbursements from the Good Will
Fund are being made at an ever-in-
creasing rate, J. A. Bursley, dean of
students, said yesterday as he pointed
out that the largest drain upon the
fund will be made the last six weeks

of the semester.
Many students have been able to
get along without help so far but will
have to haveudonations from the
fund to eke out the rest of the term,
Dean Bursley stated. Although the
expenditures have been held to a,
minimum to allow for the increased
demands, the sum of the money re-
maining is little in proportion to the
needs, he added.
About $2,000 was received for dis-
bursements of which only half re-
mains for needy students. $1,600 do-
nated by the Ann Arbor Community
Fund has been kept in a separate
account. This is paid to the dean's
office at the rate of $175 per month
and has been used to supplement the
Good Will and Loan funds.
In addition to the money paid over
to students for room, board, and
books, a considerable amount of
clothing has been donated, cleaned
and pressed, and then turned over
to needy students. More than 15 suits
of clothes, two overcoats, and three
topcoats have been given to students.
