Fight Is First To
Face New Mayor
Ann Arbor Trades And
Labor Council Charges
Violation Of Good Faith
The first serious political contro-
versy to confront newly-elected
Mayor Robert Campbell has been
raised by the Ann Arbor Trades and
Labor Council and concerns Mayor
Campbell's desire to appoint Benja-
min Graf to the Board of Public
Works from the Second Ward.
The Trades Council contends that
the mayor promised to appoint men
favorable to labor on the city com-
mittees, and that it was for this rea-
son that he was approved and
backed by the league in the last cam-
paign, while R. N. Frisinger, the
Democratic candidate, failed to get
such support.
After the election, according to
Harold Refen, head of the league,
the mayor called upon the league to
submit a list of candidates that it
thought should fill city positions.
Some deliberation followed, and the
mayor then asked that the league
concentrate its choice upon one man
for a poition on the Board of Public
Works.
The league then recommended
Louis Hackbarth,'who, according to
Reif en, has been a resident of the
city for 36 years, and who has con-
ducted a successful contracting busi-
ness durinxg that time. Mr. Campbell
then ignored the league choice and
announced Benjamin Graf as his se-
lection, Reif en says.
At the Common Council meetig
Monday night, Reifen spoke as a
spectator and asked that the Council
rcfrain from approving the choice of
Graf. He claimed that Graf was a

'Fresiian Night' Will Be
Held At Palmer Field
Before Lantern Night
,Cap 'Night" has undergone a
metamorphosis, it was announced
last night by Hugh Grove, '34E,
chairman. of the spring games com-
mittee, Thebtraditional festivities
will be known henceforth as "Fresh-
man Night," and there will be no
bonfire.
A further change is planned this
year. Freshmen will gather for their
celebration the night of May 12 at
Palmer Field, where senior women
will hold Lantern Night. Usually
Cap Night si held at Sleepy Hollow.
Lantern Night will start about 8:30
p. i., immediately after Freshman1
Night, it was announced by Cather-
inc Hesen, '33, leader of the march.
The senior women will carry lighted
lanterns which they will pass on to
the juniors, while the sophomores
will carry colored hoops. Four lead-
crs and eight aides have been named
for the ceremony.
The attempt to arouse the spring
frame spirit in the sophomore class
will be given another push at 7:30
p. m. Monday in the Union, when
Joseph Lackey, '35, sophomore class
president, will call a class caucus to
discuss the coming games.
Kidnap Daughter Of Rich

HARWICHPORT, Mass., May 2.-

daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Neil C.
McMath, formerly of Detroit, and

Pictorially smashing its way to the
front ranks of the battle being waged
between those for and against the
proposed University budget cut, Gar-
goyle's May issue will be placed on
sale at the usual points on the cam-
pus today. Its cover shows a giant,
representing the State Legislature,
delivering a crushing blow with a
mallet to the top of Angell Hall,
while a lone student emerges ter-
ror-stricken from the building.
After this courageous opening the
rest of the issue takes up the spirit
and swings right and left jabs at
everything and everyone. Professors
who have the habit of indulging in
"histrionics, anecdotes (with ges-
tures) and hobbies having little or
nothing to do with the case in hand"
are let in for their share, or more, of
the general "razzing."
Following this comes "Preposterous
People, No. 6," another of Tom Pow-
ers' characteristically exhilarating
exposes of local B.M.O.C.'s. This time
he enters the fertile fields of class
politics to pick his subject for cari-
cature.

Another of the articles that the ed-
otors expect to be of great assistance
to "every scholar (referred to gre-
gariously as 'stoonts') seeking the
companionship and company of one
of the feminine menmbers of this
dandy University," is called "I'm Aw-
fully Sorry But-"
The object of the page seems to be
to give pointers and advancehinfor-
mation to" allx and sundry who feel
that they need it in regard to such
matters, with the editors suggesting
that it be of particular value to
"every little rosy faced chap who at-
tends this glorious institution of
ours."
"Are You A Pen Pal" is a section
devoted to sly winks over the latest
"amazing newspaper" that has made
its appearance in this vicinity-the
American Examiner. A full-page
portrait of Rose Hobart, star of the
stage and screen, who is to appear
in the Dramatic Season, accompanies
an article by Robert Henderson, di-
rector. In addition, there is a dis-
cussion of the May Festival and other
regular departments.

derson of the Dramatic Festival and

Play Production will attend a recep-
tion given in their honor.
"In addition to its dramatic value,'
said Valentine B. Windt of the speech2
department, director of the play,
'Journey's End', is an excellent ve-
hicle for teaching acting, because
the acting is the most important ele-
ment in the drama."

are Jack B. Nestle,'33, in the role of
Private Mason, Jay Edward Pozz, '34,

dall, Grad., playing Lieutenant Os-

Star As Track.
Team Conquers
Michigan Normal Loses
By 85 To 41 Score; 11
Firsts Go To Wolverines
By CHARLES BAIRD
Led by Hawley Egleston and Willis
Ward, who accounted for 10 and 16
points respectively, Michigan's track
team overwhelmed Michigan Normal
yesterday afternoon on Ferry Field,,
85 to 41.
Wolverine thinclads ran away with
11 of the 14 first places to easily es-
tablish their superiority over the Hu-
rons. The track events proved a
Michigan forte, as they made a
grand slam by winning all eight of
them. The six field events were divid-
ed with the Ypsilanti invaders. -
Ward started off the afternoon by
beating Schatte of Normal in the
100-yard dash, to revenge a previous
defeat in the A.A.U. indoor meet. TheI
sophomore star had a big afternoon
in his first home start. He jumped
once in the high jump to take first
place, once in the broad jump to
place second, and was barely edged
out by Egleston in the high hurdles,
Hawley Egleston, veteran senior,
turned in one of the best ┬░performan-
ces in his career. Besides beating out
Ward in the high hurdles in the re-
markable time of 14.8, he beat Beatty,
Normal star, by 10 yards in the lows.
Perhaps the most exciting race of;
the afternoon occured in the half-
mile. After trailing Quinn of Ypsi
for almost the entire distance, Ned
Turner came from behind in the last
fifty yards to win the event in 11:58.
3. Braden of the of the Wolves placed
third.
Michigan registered a grand slam
in the quarter-mile event when De-
Baker, Allen and Ellerby finished
one two three. Cass Kemp ran a
beautiful race in the 220 to shade 1.
Hershey of Normal and Ellerby of
Michigan in 22 seconds flat.

LANSING, May 2.-P)--The State
liquor control commission swung into
action today by licensing seven Mich-
igan breweries to begin the manufac-
ture of 3.2 beer.
They were: Stroh Brewing Co., De-
troit; Phoenix Brewing Co., Bay
City; Bosch Brewing Co., Lake Lin-
den; Detroit Brewing Co., Wayne
Products Co., and Prost Brewing Co.,
Detroit. The name of the seveith
was not released.
The breweries may go into produc-
tion as soon as they receive Fed-
eral permits. It was said these prob-
ably will be available in all cases
in a day or two.
Applications from five other brew-
eries were received, but action was
deferred pending further examina-
tion of ownership and records. They
were the Tivoli Brewing Co., Detroit;
Schemm Brewing Co., Saginaw; Sag-
inaw Bottling Works; Kern Brew-
ing Co., Port Huron, and Walker
Brewing Co., Centreline.
The permits granted the breweries
was the first step in the somewhat
piteous process of making the sale
of alcoholic beverages legal in Mich-
igap. More than 20 other brewers will
be interviewed Wednesday. According
to Frank A. Picard, chairman of the
commission, as soon as the brewery
wheels are turning, the control body
will turn its attention to licensing
vendors. When enough of these have
been approved to permit a more or
less general sale, a "zero hour" will
be set when sales to the public may
begin. The date, Picard said, prob-
ably will be sometime between May
14 and May 15.
Federal and State enforcing officers
sat with the commission as brew-
ing applications were questioned. Os-
car C. Olander, commissioner of pub-
lic safety, represented the State po-
lice. Federal officers from Detroit
were on hand. Picard said reports
that a nation-wide syndicate may be
seeping to control beer prices were
