Drys On Council"

stores in the prohibited territory,
but this was brought to an immedi-
ate end when Ald. William Hollands,
another man connected with the
University who is on the council,
moved for adjournment and Presi-
dent Lucas called the meeting over
without taking a vote.
W~ets Call Meeting
Thursday night the wets had
PnesidenttLucas call another meet-
ing. At that time the wet member
of the bond and license committee,
Ald. Walter Kurtz, said he wanted to
issue a minority report granting li-
censes to applicants from the State
Street sector who had followed the
same regulations as those merchants
already granted licenses. Alderman
Sadler objected, claiming there had
been no meeting and therefore no
minority report could be presented.
City Attorney Laird ruled that Alder-
man Sadler was right.
The wets were thus caught in a
legal trap. Tuesday night they did
not introduce a minority report be-
cause Laird had ruled the east of
Division Street charter was still ef-
fective, and Wednesday, after the
attorney-general had overruled Mr.
Laird, they could not introduce a
minority report because Alderman
Sadler would not call, or would not
admit that he had called, a regular
bond and license committee meet-
ing.
No More Reports
The situation, for the remainder
of the week, becomes simply this:
the bond and license committee will
not make any reports. It will not
even make a report refusing the
State Street applications, because
then Kurtz can make his minority
report and there is a possibility that
this may be passed by the council
as a whole.
The next regular meeting of the
council is Monday. At that time the
wets, if they are strong enough, can
make the committee report upon the
State Street applications.
But it is doubtful if the wets are
strong enough. From a vote taken

Make State
Sale Improbable
last night, and from private con-
versations of the aldermen them-
selves, it appears that the body is
now divided at 7-7. One alderman
is sick. He is expected to return
within two weeks. He is a dry.
The drys thus believe that, with
the council deadlocked at 7-7, no
instructions can be given the bond
and license committee. That com-
mittee need not even make any re-
ports. The drys do not intend to
make any-or at least that is their
strategy now-until Ald. Raymond
Burr, the sick councilman, comes
back. Then they will be in a ma-
jority, 8-7, and can refuse whatever
applications they want.
May Go To Court
The State Street merchants have
one recourse left. If they do not con-
sider the council's refusal to give
them licenses "reasonable," they can"
appeal to the courts. The case will
come up in the Circuit Court under
Judge George W. Sample. He is a
dry. The drys will argue that in re-
fusing State Street applications they
are keeping the sale of beer away
from University and high schooli
students. This, they will say, is1
"reasonable." They believe thatt
Judge Sample will agree with them.,
It appears, then, that the drys areI

NEW YORK, May 11.-( -
Charles E. Mitchell, former head of
the National City Bank, presented
himself at the Federal Building to-
day to go on trial on an indictment
charging that in 1929 and 1930 ho
evaded payment of $858,429.68 in in-
come taxes.
In testimony before a committee
in Washington he acknowledged that
he created a loss for one of those
years by temporary sale of securities
to a member of his family who was
later identified as his wife.
The indictment charges that in
the other year in question he created
a fictitious loss in the same manner,
although no member of his family
figured in that transaction.
After testifying in Washington,
Mitchell resigned as head of the
National City Bank and its subsidi-
aries. His indictment as to the 1929
tax evasion quickly followed Federal
investigation resulted in another in-
dictment as to 1930.
