COnmends Attitude
Of Banks,_People
Council Of Bankers Fails
To Reach Agreement On
Gov. William A. Comstock appeared
optimistic about the ending of the
"bank holiday" on scheduled time,
in an interview at his home last
night, but stated that if the situation
demanded it, he would prolong it
long enough to permit the passing
of proper legislation.
"I do not know what developments
will take place over the week-end,"
the governor said, "but I hope that
they will be such that the bank holi-
day' wil lend on the 21st."
"If it should continue longer,"
Governor Comstock said, "it will be
for a short time only. The situation
is an unusual one, and we cannot
predict what will be the outcome of
the holiday period.
"The banks are using common
sense in dealing with the situation,
and the people are using their heads."
The governor returned to Ann Ar-
bor last night after having spent the
day in Lansing conferring with the
executive council of the Michigan
Bankers Association. The meeting
yesterday failed to produce any defi-
nite program to be followed, however.

A part of America "less known to
white men than any portion of Af-
rica" will be explored during the next
four months by two University of
Michigan scientists.
Prof. Frederick i. Gaige, director
of the Museum of Zoology, an-
nounced today that C. L. Lundell, of
the University Herbarium and Law-
rence C. Stewart, of the Museum of'
Zoology, will sail from New Orleans
March 1, bound for northern Guata-
mala, last stronghold of the Maya.
The expedition is part of a biological
survey of the country once held by
the race who developed the highest
pre-columbian culture in the West-
ern Hemisphere and is being carried
out in conjunction with the general
Mayan project of the Carnegie Insti-
tution of Washington, D. C.
Must Travel by Mules
Lundell and Stewart will go by
steamship to Belize, Honduras, by
river boat to El Cayo, Guatamala,
and then on muleback to Libertad
village which will be permanent
headquarters of the expedition. One
of their important problems will be
to determine whether the great open
plain of northern Guatamala is true
savanna or a former forest area
burned over by Maya agriculturists.
The only inhabitants of the region
are bush Indians, descendants of the
great Maya of ancient times, who
still have the language and religion
of their highly cultured ancestors,
and also their "eagle-beak" noses,
but have lost all knowledge of their
arts and sciences. They exist in com-

plete independence of the outside
world-weave their own cloth, make
their own rum from honey. But they
have no traditions of the glories their
-ace knew in the past. They cannot
-ead the inscriptions on the ruined
temples near their homes and care
nothing for theart treasures.
Lundell traveled among them in
1928-29 and again in 1931-32. On
Dec. 29, 1931, he discovered ruins of
ancient Calakmul (City of Two Pyr-
amids), whichhe describes as five
times the size of Chichen Itza, fa-
mous Mayan city of Yucatan. Calak-
mul contains two large pyramids,
one of six acres and one of four acres.
It dates back to 350 A. D. or earlier.
Jan. 5, 1932, Lundell discovered No-
hoxma with its three standing
temples, 20 miles southeast of Calak-

To Study Nohoxma
Jaguar, deer and tapir are plenti-I
ful in the region, according to Lun-
dell. The ruins of Calakmul and No-j
hoxma will be studied later by Car-
negie Institution archaeologists, but
Lundell and Stewart will confine
their investigations to the plants and
animals of the district. Their work
is made possible by a grant of money
from the Carnegie Institution.
"The little known savanna of
northern Gualamala," Prof. Gaige
said, "has interested Michigan bio-
logists for more than 20 years. Presi-
dent Ruthven and I have been plan-
ning the present ex;pedition since
1909, but we had to wait all this time
before it became possible."

LANSING, Feb. 18.-(R')-The ex-
ecutive council of the Michigan
Bankers Association met here this
afteroon with Gov. William A. Com-
stock, but the conference evidently
failed to produce an agreement on a
program to -follow ending of the
eight-day bank holiday.
A legislative committee has been
appointed to meet here Monday with
a committee representing 70 out-
state banks in an attempt to reach
an agreement on the nature of au-
thority to be given the governor in
proposed emergency legislation which
would vest in him practical dicta-
torial powers.
Gilbert L. Daane, of Grand Rapids,
will preside over the joint meeting
of bankers and legislators Monday.
Governor Comstock went to his home
at Ann Arbor today, planning to re-
turn here early Monday morning.
Art Exchange Will
Open Exhibit Today
The student and alumni Art Ex-
change, sponsored by the League,
will open at 4 p. m. today and con-
tinue throughout the year. An ex-
hibit opening this afternoon will be
displayed on the second floor of the
League building.
The Art Exchange plan, designed
primarily to sell work done by stu-
dents, has been tried at several other
colleges and has met with success,
Ethel A. McCormick, social directorI
of the League, said yesterday. TheI
exhibit, termed by Miss McCormick
as one of the best enterprises the
students have undertaken in some
time, will bring forth student talent
which many would not believe is
present, she said.
The value of the works on exhibit,
numbering more than 500 pieces,
range in price from twenty-five cents
to $50, and include tapestries, etch-
ings, batiks and other designs.
The art work will be sold on a
60-40 basis, the author of the work
receiving 60 per cent of the sale
price, while the League will retain 40.
Ten per cent of the League's share
will go to the Undergraduate Fund of
the League, while the remainder will
be used to defray expenses.

Prize, Winners
For Freshmen
63 Contestants Enter 100
Manuscripts- McManus,

Announcement of the winners of
Hopwood awards for freshmen was'
made yesterday by Prof. Erich A.
Walters, of the English department,
chairman of the committee on the
freshman contest.
The prizes awarded were $50, $30
and $20 for the three best works in
the fields of fiction and poetry, the
committee having split the prize in
the field of essay into four prizes of
$25 each, Professor Walters said.
Prizes in fiction were won by Ei-
leen McManus, Josephine S. Had-I
ley, and Dorothy S. Gies in the order
named. In the field of poetry, the
awards went to Elizabeth Allen, Dor-
othy Gies, and Samuel Stearns, as
The four equal prizes in essay-
writing went to LeVerne A. Baker,
Grant W. Howell, Reid H. Nation,
and James A. Randall, in alpha-
betical order.
Judges of the contest were Prof.
Louis A. Strauss, of the English de-
partment, Dr. Frank E. Robbins, as-
sistant to the president, and Wilfred
B. Shaw, director of alumni rela-
This year's contest showed an in-
crease over last year in the number
of manuscripts submitted. One hun-
dred manuscripts were submitted by
64 contestants in this year's contest,
as compared with 69 contributions
from 53 contestants for last year.-

Union Barbers
Fail To Adopt
New Cut-Rate
Other Shops Lower Price
To 35 Cents; Business Is
Reported Below Normal
While all other barber shops in the
city yesterday inauguated a new 35-
cent price for haircuts, the barber
shop at the Union, men's student or-
ganization, refused to adopt the cut
rate and set a cash price of 45 cents
and a coupon price 36 cents.
A number of barbers stated that
they realized the prices would have
to be lowered sooner or later, but
said that the new schedule would
undoubtedly force some shops out of
business. There are now 15 shops in
the campus district, which according
to the consensus of opinion among
the barbers, is too many even with
the price of haircuts at fifty cents.
Business was good, according to
the barbers interviewed yesterday,
but the total profit fell considerably
below thatof previous Saturdays. A
barber now has to give three hair-
thur W. Bromage, of the political
cuts to every two under the old price
level to realize the same profit.
The barbers defended their stand
in keeping the prices up as long as
possible on the ground that when
shops in other cities raised the price
of haircuts to sixty-five and seventy
cents in pre-depression days, they
kept theirs at fifty.
The shortage of cash among the
students has decreased the business
done by the barbers in the last week
somewhat it was stated yesterday.
Most shops are extending credit to
regular customers, however.

Iowans Defeat
Wolves, 36-35
By LateRally
Contrasting Styles Of Play
Mark Michigan's Second
Big Ten Loss
Poor Officiating
Spoils Close Game
Referee Kearns, Umpire
Miller Draw Continued
Boos From Crowd
Amid the poorest officiating that
Michigan fans have been forced to'
see this season, Iowa staged a last-'
minute rally and changed places with
the Wolverines in the Conference'
standings. The score was 36 to 35.
During the first half it was Nick
Kearns who aggravated the fans and
players alike with inaccurate deci-
sions. In the second half, his brother
official, Umpire Doyle Miller, persist-
ed in calling wrong decisions. Neither
official favored one team over the
other, but after calling one wrong
play, they called another to make up
for the first.
Doyle Miller gets the biggest
"Bronx cheer" for his last minute de-
visions. After Michigan had advanced
the ball over the center line, Petoskey
threw it to Altenhof and it was
aimed back over the line into Mich-
igan's territory. The whistles blew as
Altenhof saved the ball while keep-
ing on the offensive side of the line.
The penalty was out of bounds for
the opposition.
With about twenty-five seconds
left to play, Iowa did the same thing
and Miller wasted the valuable sec-
onds remaining, trying to argue the
two teams into the idea that it should
be called a jump ball. Michigan
might have turned the out of bounds
throw into a basket and won the
game, the twenty#five seconds were
sufficient to do so. This ws but one
of the bad decisions.
Run Up Early Lead
For the first ten minutes of the
first half, Michigan had a distinct
advantage while Iowa took the dis-
tinction for their play in the last ten
minutes. In the second half, both
teams were even for 10 minutes until
Iowa substituted Kotlow and Moffitt
who produced the spark of victory
and clearly outclassed Michigan.
The Wolverines ran up a quick
lead of 18 to 7 early in the first half
and Iowa retaliated with a series of
long toms and the half ended, 22 to
18, in favor of Michigan.
Michigan continued the six point
advantage for the first ten minutes
of the second half. As Iowa would
sink a long shot, Michigan would
cash in for two points from a short
one, frequently by Garner from his
pivot position.
With but 12 minutes to go, Iowa
started climbing. Their swift passing
and fast game kept the Michigan
team on its toes throughout the con-
test as whenever someone would lag
behind, their man would pop in a
long tom.
Kotlow, who replaced Krumbholz
of the original lineup, made a dog
shot under the basket and Grim got
another after eluding Eveland. Grim
duplicated his evasion again for two
more points and Bastian made an-
other. Although Plummer made a
foul and Garner a pivot shot during
the last three minutes, Michigan was

still one point behind as the game
Iowans Make Long Shots
Iowa used their long shot artists
to advantage but kept the ten play-
ers on the floor working hard with.
the swift passing attack. Michigan
used more one-handed short shots
to score. When the Iowa defense was
set, Coach Cappon's men used a de-
layed offense, but when a free ball
had been recovered or intercepted,
they used their usual fast-breaking,
hard running, type of play to ad-
vance the ball into opponent's dan-
gerous territory.
Iowa connected from the foul line
eight out of ten times while Michigar
made seven out of 11. This difference
won the game for the visitors.
Eveland was charged with ball-
stealing after the game by Judge
Rollie Williams who intimated tha
he thought that it was a crime the
way the Michigan Captain kept

The world premiere of Howard
Hanson's opera "Merrymount" will
be given at the 1933 Ann Arbor May
Festival. Dr. Charles A. Sink, presi-
dent of the School of Music, an-
nounced today that the dates of thi,
year's festival are May 17 to 20, in-
clusive. '
"Merrymount" is based on Nath-
aniel Hawthorne's story of Puritan
New England, "The Maypole at
Merrymount," and consists of three
acts and six scenes. It was composed
for the Metropolitan Opera Company
for presentation this winter, but the
premiere was delayed and permission
was obtained to have the first per-
formance at Hill Auditorium.
Mr. Hanson, who is musical direc-
tor of Eastman School of Music, Ro-
chester, N. Y., will direct the produc-
tion here, in which the Chicago Sym-
phony Orchestra, the University
Choral Union and Metropolitan
Opera singers will take part.
Another feature of the 1933 May
Festival will be the first presentation
in America of "Belshazzar's Feast," a
choral work by William Walten, Brit-
ish composer. Dr. Sink also plans an
all-Wagner program at one of the six
concerts. Dr. Frederick Stock, direc-
tor, and Eric De La Marter, associate
director, will be with the 'Chicago
Symphony Orchestra, Dr. Sink said.

Jim Corbett Dies During
Sleep After Long Illness
.NEW YORK, Feb. 18.-(P)-A pale,
courageous shadow of the once mag-
nificant "Pompadour Jim," of the
gay nineties and the man who rocked
the pugilistic world by knocking out
John L. Sullivan over 40 years ago,
James J. Corbett died in his sleep
today at his suburban home in Bay-
side, Long Island.
Death was due to a complication
of diseases which had sapped the for-
mer heavyweight champion's strength
for the past year and developed a
fatal heart ailment three weeks ago.
He was 66 years old.
Wistfully, a few hours before he
died, his dark eyes opened, and slow-
ly searched the room where he has
received the homage of the sporting
world since the day he was stricken.
"You're there, dear, aren't you?"
Corbett asked, with, a smile, as he
looked for the wife who has been
his constant nurse and companion.

Windt Calls'Hedda Gabler' Most
Interesting Of All Ibsen's Plays


Police Find No Clue To
$3,000 Store Robbe

"Hedda Gabler" is one of the most
interesting of Ibsen's plays," Valen-
tine B. Windt, director of Play Pro-
duction, declared yesterday, "Be-
cause this play is devoid of his
usual reforming spirit and is only a
careful analysis of the reactions of a
set of people in certain situations."
"The story of the play depends a
great deal on its time and it must
be done in period costume so that the
elements that are essentially of the
nineties will not be lost," he stated.
"The conventions embodied in the
play are victorian, but the reactions
of the people to the situations are
Play Production is producing
"Hedda Gabler" on Feburary 23, 24,
25 and 27 at the Laboratory theatre.
"'Hedda Gabler' is the most diffi-
cult play that we have ever tried to
produce here," Mr. Windt said. "It is

reason for Hedda, an egocentric per-
son with no resources within herself,
marrying Tesman, a competent, un-
imaginative, but conscientious and
kindly scholar. According to Miss
Yurka, in Norway generals are paid
huge salaries which cease when they
die so that Hedda on the death of
her father was thrown from a world
of luxury and married Tesman for
purely financial reasons."
"Hedda," Mr. Windt continued,
"should have been a leader of a
smart social set for she reveled in
brilliant conversation and had
dreams of high adventure but was
inwardly too much of a coward to
carry them out. The ordinary emo-
tions, motherhood and love, didn't
affect her. She was easily bored and
to be bored was misery to her."

it is put into modern dress," he con-
