Questionable' Finances Found
In 21 Houses By Investigators
Of the 49 nonprofessional frater- I in Ann Arbor or vicinity, who is not

nities now on the Michigan campus,
there are 21 whose financial condi-
tion -has' been found to be "ques-
tionable," according to a report
which a committee of graduate sec-
retaries of four national fraternities
has submitted to the Interfraternity
"Perhaps more than half of these
could be placed in a satisfactory fi-
nancial condition through concerted
action on the part of their national
officers and alumni," the report con-
The committee is composed of
Malcolm C. Sewell, Sigma Nu, chair-
man; Richard K. Young, Phi Kappa
Tau; Maurice Jacobs, Phi Epsilon
Pi; and Arthur R. Priest, Phi Delta
Theta. It was appointed at the con-
ference of national fraternity secre-
taries and deans of colleges at a
recent meeting held at Columbus, O.
The report sets up five require-
ments which are recommended for
the financial stability and welfare of
member fraternities. They are as
follows: "(1) an acceptable audit
of chapter accounts at the close of
each semester; (2) a monthly finan-
cial statement; (3) preparation of;
an operating budget at the beginning
of each semester; (4) appointment
of an adult financial adviser resident

an undergraduate; and (5) at least
60 per cent of active members at-
taining a scholastic grade equivalent
to that required for graduation.
The office of the dean of students
was recommended as the "logical
clearing house for the submission
of the reports designated, and for
which the office would be confiden-
tial custodian."
Honorable discharge from frater-
nity obligations in the case of a
withdrawal by the national frater-
nity organization of a loal charter
was advised, to enable members so
released to join another fraternity.
The reportyrecommends that the
Interfraternity Council ask the dean
of students to write to the national
headquarteers of Michigan frater-
nities inclosing a copy of the report
and asking that they take action to
make the chapters comply with the
following conditions: "(1) accounts
payable for operating expenses cov-
ering the past college-year, exclusive
of rent to their own house corpora-
tions, not to exceed $500; and regard-
ing any preceding operating deficit,
to makersatisfactory agreements
with their creditors for amortization;
and (2) property obligations be
placed in such condition that while
having due regard for rights of mort-

England, U. S.
Unite Against
German Plan
Norman Davis Advises
Mild Consideration Of
Hitler Armament Stand
PARIS, May 15.-(')-The United
States and Great Britain are actively
preparing to face Germany with a
common front of opposition against
her rearmament.
The German stand on arms, which
is expected to be explained by Chan-
cellor Adolf Hitler at the special
meeting of the Reichstag Wednesday
was the subject of a fifty-minute
talk today by Norman H. Davis,
American ambassador-at-large, and
foreign minister Joseph Paul Bon-
Mr. Davis advised Paul Boncour
to take a mild stand towards the
Hitler pronouncement, it was under-
stood, in order that the United States
and Britain might be able to ally
themselves with him.
The whole German question will be
discussed by the French cabinet to-
morrow. Later Mr. Davis will confer
with Premier Edouard Daladier, and
then he will go to Geneva where he
will publicly express the views of the
United States-an expression which
will depend on Chancellor Hitler's
Reichstag announcement.
American British and French dip-
lomatic channels are counseling
moderation to the Hitler Govern-
ment, with Mr. Davis at the same
time quieting the French in order
that America may participate in the
three-power front.
The French Government, a spokes-
man said, feels that Germany is de-
termined to rearm and is distrustful
of Chancellor Hitler unless soft words
are followed by peaceful acts.

Welfare Fund
Almost Gone,
Council Finds
Only $3,000 Left For De-
pendents, Is Report Of
Budget Committee
Situation Is Called
'Extremely Serious'
I City Again Refuses To
Issue Beer Licenses To
Dealers East Of Division
At the end of this week Ann Arbor
welfare workers and their depend-
ents, numbering nearly 2,000 people,
will be without any source of funds
for food, clothing, and shelter, it was
learned at the Common Council
meeting last night in City Hall.
The situation, in the words of the
aldermen, is "extremely serious," and
there appears to be no solution to it.
Ald. Leigh Thomas, chairman of the
budget committee, said there was but
$3,000 left for welfare work and no
possibility of getting more. This sum,
he said, would be exhausted some
time this week.
Workers Crowd Hall
Representatives of the workers,
who crowded all available space in
the meeting hall, demanded that the
council do something, and the alder-
men asked them what could be done.;
A suggestion by one worker that the
city default on its bonds, and use the
money instead to continue welfare
work was not seriously considered by]
the council.
"The condition is serious," Ald
William Paton said. "But we are out,
of money and there is no immediate,
way of our getting any. I should
like to see the local agencies take
care of some of this work, or per-
haps 100 or so people could each
care for a family until we see what
happens at Lansing or in Washing-
Harry Reifen, head of the Trades
and Labor Council, wanted to know
who would be responsible for any
starvation which might occur. City
Attorney William Laird said it was
his opinion that the city would not
be legally responsible, but was re-
sponsible morally.
"If you fellows want to kick any-
one good and hard, go to Lansing
and kick the legislature," Ald. Leigh
Young advised the welfare workers.
"We have been waiting for them to
raise the money for this work, as the
Federal government asked them to,
but they have not been able to do
it. The responsibility is theirs."
The entire matter was referred
back to a joint meeting of the bud-,
get and poor committees, which were
instructed to report back to the
council at a special meeting Monday
at 7:30 p. m.
Approve Beer Applications
The council also approved 14 more
beer applications, bringing the total
of merchants now selling beer up to
34. None of the approved licenses was
to applicants east of Division Street,
Chairman Walter Sadler of the bond
and license committee, explaining
that more time was needed to con-
sider these applications.
Doubt was cast upon Att'y.-Gen.
Patrick O'Brien's ruling that the Di-
vision Street charter provision had
been overruled by the State beer bill,
and a motion of Alderman Faust's to
have City Attorney Laird write to
Lansing for an official ruling from
the attorney-general was passed.
Admitting that the ruling would be

the same as the last one, Faust
claimed that the council could not
accept the previous letter because it
had been to a private citizen and not
to the Common Council itself.

First Sunday Play
Will Be Given In
Lydia Mendelssohn
By special permission of the Com-
mittee on Theatre Policy, a Sunday
evening performance of Shake-
speare's "Twelfth Night" with Miss
Jane Cowl will be given during the
Dramatic Season on Sunday, June
18, in the Lydia Mendelssohn Thea-
tre,.it was announced today.
This is the first time permission
for a performance on Sunday in the
Medelssohn Theatre has been grant-
ed. Such permission was given, it
was explained, both because of the
nature of the play and players and
because of the many parents of
graduating students who are in Ann
Arbor the day before the Commence-
ment exercises. Several thousands of
such visitors are in Ann Arbor only
for the Baccalaureate service on Sun-
day morning and for the graduating
exercises on Monday morning. The
performance on Sunday evening,
June 18, therefore, will allow many
seniors and their parents to see Jane
Cowl as Viola in "Twelfth Night,"
who might otherwise be unable to
do so. Miss Cowl has never played
on Sunday evening before, but gra-
ciously consented to do so when it
was explained that the performance
on June 18 would be the only oppor-
tunity many visitors to Ann Arbor
would have to se her.
Final rehearsals for. the Dramatic
Season are now under way at the'
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre under'
the direction of Robert Henderson.
Tom Powers, Rose Hobart and Edith
Barrett have been in Ann Arbor for
several days, and Miss Violet Hem-
ing arrives this morning from New'
York City.
The Dramatic Season formally
opens this Thursday evening, May
18, at the Palace Theatre, Toledo,;
when Violet Heming and Tom Pow-
ers appear in John Van Druten's
comedy "There's Always Juliet,"
which will also be repeated on Fri-
day night, May 19.

New Taxation
Roosevelt Will Not Ask
%pecific Tax For New
Public Works Program
WASHINGTON, May 15.-(,P)-A
decision to let Congress, without spe-
cific recommendation from President
Roosevelt, choose the form of taxa-
tion to fund the public works pro-
gram as $3,300,000,000 of bonds
tonight issued from a White House
meeting of Congressional leaders.
The public works plan, joined with
industrial control legislation into the
last of the big recommendations for
the present session, is due to be sent
to Congress Wednesday, and Presi-
dent Roosevelt will insist that it be
accompanied by sufficient new taxa-
tion to raise $220,000,000 a year for
interest and amortization of the big
issue. Bu.t Speaker Rainey, after
the White House meeting, said the
President will not ask that the sales

Legislators Vote Full
To Enable Them
Stay In Lansing


LANSING, May 15-(I)-The State
met its paytoll in full today and
thereby hangs a tale of a legislative
maneuver that didn't work.
Some time ago the State adminsis-
tration board decided State funds
were at so low an ebb employees
would have to go on a half-pay basis.
Opponents of prompt passage of a
new revenue bill seized upon this
as an argument in favor of new
funds at once.
They hoped to hurry the sales and
gross income tax through. The report
soon same back that if the half-pay,
scale were adopted more than a score
of the members of the Legislature
would have to go home. They can
live on three dollars a day but could
not get along on $1.50, it was said.
The loss of so many legislators would
have blocked passage, or at least im-
mediate effect, of tax legislation.
There have been no half-pay days
yet--and perhaps they can be avoid-
ed entirely. For beer money is roll-
ing into the treasury.
