Beer Bill
Is Sent To
Wine Is Also Legaized
By Senate And House
Opposed By Comstock
Governor Dislikes
Home Rule Clause
tate Liquor Comnmission
To Be Appointed Soon
If Bill Is Approved
LANSING, April 27.-(P)-A bill to
legalize the sale and manufacture of
3.2 beer and wine in Michigan was
passed by the Legislature today.
After two weeks of bickering the
measure was approved by both the
Senate and the House. It was sent
to Governor Comstock's desk con-
taining provisions distasteful to the
executive. If he signs the bill, the
act will become effective at once,
and legal beer may start flowing in
a few days.
The Governor started studying the
measure tonight. He said he would
discuss its terms with members of
his advisory committee before decid-
ing whether to veto or approve the
measure. He objected principally to
an ironclad home rule provision in-
serted by the Senate. It stipulated
that licenses to vendors of beer and
wine could not be issued without the
approval of local governing bodies,
and that licenses be revoked upon
the demand of two-thirds of the
members of the city, township or vil-
lage legislative bodies. Wayne county
alone was exempted from the home
rule clause.
"I will not know whether I will
veto or sign the bill until I have dis-
cussed it with members of the ad-
visory committee that drew up the
measure," the Governor said. "Off-
hand I would say I do not like the
provision and might send it back to
the LeVslature. To put 6o tral of
beer and wine in the hands of local
bodies will be to return it to politics.
That is the thing we want to get
away from. Control should be in a
central body.,
Governor Comstock c-o n f e r r e d
briefly with James Gordon Bonine,
Cassopolis, a member of the advisory
committee, and later with . other
If the bill is approved the Gov-
ernor, plans to appoint a state liquor
control commission at once. The
measure provides there must be 17
members, not more than nine of
whom may belong to the same poli-
tical party. One will be named for
each Congressional district.

Merchants Will Lend Aid
More plans for swelling the Good
Will Fund have been formulated by
arrangements for an A 11 - C i t y
Skating Carnival to be held Tuesday
night, May 2. The plans are not yet
complete, but several business men
of Ann Arbor have evidenced serious
interest in the venture.
Police Chief Thomas O'Brien has1
sanctioned the event and has prom-
ised to have Ingalls Street from
A North University to Washington
blocked off; several merchants have
Ialrea4dy" offered; prizes for the win-
ners of the contests; and complete
equipment has been donated from
various concerns for the carnival.
Miss Ruth Robinson, social chairman
of the League, is planning the affair
and has so far made arrangements
for music during the evening by Pete
Blumcquist's 11-piece orchestra.
The folowing speed races and nov-
elty features are planned: boys, all
under 18; boys, all over 18; girls, all
under 18; girls, all over 18; obstacle
races for above groups; men's fancy
skating, women's fancy skating, most
graceful couple, most unusual ve-
hicle, fraternity and independent
four-man relay races.
All proceeds will be given over to1
the Student Good Will Fund and all
prizes will be offered by local mer-
chants for the cause.
Storekeeper Gets
Paid Off; Officer
Bites Feeding Hand
All these things happened the other
day to C. W. Graham, well-known
manager of a local bookstore:
1. A policeman walked into Mr.
Graham's store and asked him for
a piece of chalk.
2. The policeman came back with .
the chalk and asked if he could bor-
row a pencil.
3. The policeman came back with'
the pencil, thanked Mr. Graham,
and walked out.
4. Mr. Graham became curious and,
went outside. There on the tire of
his car was a patrolman's chalk-
mark; on the car was a tag for over-
time parking.
6. Mr. Graham turned the other
cheek to the stunned officer: "May I;

Hoyt Rescues Fine
Feathered Friends


Near Death

Just a week old they are, mere
babies and dying of the cold. Track
Coach Charlie Hoyt has taken them
under his paternal wing, but they fail
to respond to his treatment and it
is feared that their death is immin-
With the first signs of spring a
few weeks ago a father and mother
meadow-lark built themselves a lit-
tle home in the middle of wind-
swept Ferry Field. Carefully they
hollowed out a hole in the grass to
provide a comfortable bed for the
little ones, and now their solicitude
is to go for naught..
Members of the track team prac-
ticing on the field discovered the
tiny nest when the babies were hat-
chedla. Thursday. ,Tendrly the.
brawny athletes placed sticks around
the home to protect the baby larks
and the fledglings responded by gap-
ing their oversize mouths for food
when anyone approached.
With the return of cooler weather,
the trackmen, who return nightly
from the cold weather to a hot show-
er, fearing for the safety of their
tiny charges, laid blocks of wood be-
side the nest to protect it from the
biting winds. The birds became sick-
ly and someone wrapped a towel
about the nest,, but all to no avail.
Yesterday the week-old fledglings
refused the food carefully selected
for them by their worried parents
and it is feared by the squad that
the end is near.
Meanwhile the javelins continue to
shower down on the sod carefully
avoiding the nest, and cleated shoes
continue to pound the' cinder track.
Despite the tragedy being enacted in
the middle of the field varsity prac-
tice must go on.

"Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme" by
Moliere will be presented at 8:15 p. m.
today by the Cercie Francais in the
Laboratory Theatre.
This musical comedy concerns a
merchant Monsieur Jourdain, who
desires to get entrance to high so-
ciety and his various antics in learn-
ing the graces which befit a man in
such a position. It is enlivened by
scenes with some of his instructors
in which they almost start a fight
over the respective merits of their
sciences. Another incident is the Tur-
kish Ceremony in which Jourdain is
made a "mamamouchi." This scene
was put in at the request of Louis
XIV who wished to ridicule the

ings of the Michigan- Association of
Collegiate Registrars, the Michigan

Enrollment in the annual confer-

because many teachers have had
large salary cuts-some have not re-
ceived any pay for weeks-and can-
not afford to attend the meetings
this year, L. P. Jocelyn, secretary-
treasurer, said last night. Morethan
2,600 attended the meeting last year,
but Mr. Jocelyn approximated that
1,500 to 2,000 would be present at
this session.
The three general themes -of the
conference, as expressed by President
Alexander G. Ruthven, will be "train-
ing in citizenship, the inspiration
which research brings to teaching, -
and the organization of teachers."

Beer Will Be Sold
At Princeton Inn'
PRINCETON, N. J., April 26.-An
eight-ounce glass of draught beer for
10 cents will be available to students
of Princeton University with the
completion of the Princeton Inn's,
taproom, it has been announced by
J. Howard Slocum, manager of the
Bottled beer will also be made
available, Mr. Slocum said. Before
the legalization of 3.2 brew, a la carte
meals formed the major attraction of
the inn.-
Paul R. Buckley, manager of the
Union, said yesterday that sale of 3.2
beer in the Union depends, in his
opinion, entirely on action by the
Board of Regents. He said he be-
lieved the president and recording
secretary of the Union had no power
to authorize such sale, even if the.
amendment to the city charter for-
bidding "spiritous" liquors east of j
Division Street is repealed.

Maize and Blue boxers scored four
victories out of eight matches in the
Student Good Will Boxing Show at
Yost Field House last night as Dave
Golden, Joe Oakley, Tony Dauksza,
and Dave Gallup won.
Many of the 2,000 saw their first
prize fighting. Some liked it and
some didn't as the high and low
spots in the three-hour spectacle of
amateur fighting passed quickly be-
fore their eyes. Sometimes they booed
but mostly they cheered during the
16 bouts that were run off.
Feature Is Close
The main event, between Jack
Starwas and Harvey Bauss, did not
bring the show to the height that
was expected as neither fighter cared
to take any chances. Each has tre-
mendous respect for the other and
the dynamite that each held ready
to fire if a break ever came, was held
in check until the third round when
Starwas forged ahead to win the de-
cision. The fight up to the third,
was judged exactly even by all three
officials, referee John Johnstone, O.
R. Benjamin, and Henry Sullivan.
The Golden Gloves light heavy-
weight champion k e p t jabbing
away with his left during the first
two rounds but took the lead by
landing three solid rights to Bauss'
jaw in the last stanza.
Flyweight Is Easy
Two flyweights were selected for
the semi-final by Vernon Larson, the
freshman boxing coach who arranged
the show, Jack Bissell of Battle
Creek and Stan Ceislick, Bys Clube,
Detroit. The former hit the floorj
three times as his chin stopped the
terrific rights of Ceislick who won
an easy decision.
Let Corsini gave the crowd plenty
to cheer about by flooring Stan Wizo-
rick, Battle Creek featherweight,
twice in the last round for counts of
five and three. He was measuring
the Battle Creek man for a knockout
as the bell rang. The free hitting de-
lighted the audience who split up.

gave a brilliant exhibition of clever
boxing to win. He produceda two-
handed attack which, along with his
superior footwork, kept him ahead
Dave Gallup won a decision over
Ernie Stebbleton, of Battle Creek,
with his left jabs. He kept jabbing
away for three rounds, coolly keep-

WASHINGTON, April 27.-UP)-|

Free coinage of silver was written
into the administration's monetary
inflation legislation by the Senate
late today after a turbulent session
which ended in an agreement to limit
debate and thus hasten a final vote
An amendment proposed by Sen-
ators Wheeler (D., Mont.) and King
(D., Utah) was added to the measureI
to authorize the President to remone-
tize silver at any ratio to gold that
he sees fit. The amendment pro-
vides, also, for free and unlimited
coinage at that ratio.
The bimetallism clause was accept-
ed by a vote of 41 to 26 after the pro-
vision of the inflation legislation au-,
thorizing the President to reduce the
gold content of the dollar by as much
as 50 per cent had been subjected to
terrific opposition from Sen. Borah,
Idaho's Republican independent, and
Sen. Robinson (R., Ind.) had inject-
ed the cash soldiers bonus issue by
offering an amendment to pay the
war veterans out of the proposed $3,-
000,000,000 of new currency.
Senator Carter Glass, Virginia
Democrat and outstanding Senate
authority on finance, Wednesday
broke with the Administration on
the inflation legislation.
He said he would vote against the
farm bill as well as the inflation
proposals, which are attached to the
farm measure as a rider. Both plans
are advocated by President Roosevelt.
Reports To Be

Student Conference Makes
Outline Of Subjects To
Be Brought Up At Parley
The primary report on the Inter-
national Student Conference on
World Affairs to be held May 4, 5, 6,
and 7 atthe Union came off the
presses yesterday and will be dis-
tributed to studentsin various classes
This report contains an outline for
each of three fields that will be cov-
ered by the conference. A student
commission will handle the discus-
sion in each of these fields, which
are world politics, world economics,
and world society.
Faculty members and students
have co-operated in drawing up this
report, which includes outlines of
the subjects likely to come up, an ex-
tensive bibliography, and a list of
speakers who will give short talks on
various phases of the subject.
An attempt will be made to link
the discussion as far as possible with
the current news of today, especially
in the divisions of world politics, in
which the crisis in Germany and the
situation in the Far East will form
two of the topics scheduled for cer-
tain of the meetings, Gordon Galaty,

All University employes face the
prospect of receiving half-pay for
April as a result of the announce-
nent yesterday by Auditor-General
Stack relative to the payment of
State salaries for the current month.
The $236,000 which has been ac-
,orded the University will, accord-
ng to Shirley W. Smith, vice-presi-
lent and secretary of the University,
iermit payment of one-half of all
,Jniversity salaries for April. These
salaries would include those of all
)rofessors, directors, instructors, and
,lerks of the University along with
he salaries of employes of the Build-
"ng and Grounds Department and
the University Hospital.
Although the University adminis-
tration has received no official notice
of the action of the auditor-general,
:ts opinion yesterday was that it is
Iifficult to see the fairness of treat-
ng one group of State employes dif-
ferently from another.
A review of the existing situation
n regard to University salaries by
Vice-President Smith showed that
the hourly wage employes of the
Building and Grounds Department
have been paid in full up to April 10.
The hourly labor at the University
Hospital has been paid up to April
11. All other University employes are
paid in full to the end of March as
a result of the salary payments made
April 15, which covered the last half
of the March payroll.
A payroll including all employes
falls due at the end of this month.
The $236,000 which the State plans
now to release to the University will
permit the payment of only one-
half of this payroll.
A group of members of the State
Senate will be in Ann Arbor today to
discuss University finances with Uni-
versity officials.

Personalities In May Festival
Described By Prof. Hackett

John Charles Thomas, recently
signed Metropolitan baritone, and
Frederick Jagel, well known tenor of
the Metropolitan Opera, Company,
both of whom will sing at the May
Festival, are two of the most inter-
esting personalities among modern
musicians, Arthur Hackett, professor
of voice, believes.
"Mr. Thomas is one of the clever-
est prestidigitators I have ever seen,"
Professor Hackett, who is himself a
musician of note and has been as-

the Metropolitan offered him. Soon
after that he went to Europe to study
voice and made his operatic debut
in Brussels. Returning to the United
States, he won recognition as one of
the outstanding baritones of the
country and signed a contract with
the late Chicago Civic Opera Co.
Fi'ederick Jagel, Professor Hackett
said, started his career singing with
Roxy at the Capitol theatre in New
York. He also studied in Europe and
on his return signed a contract with
