The second concert of the May
Festival came to a close last night
with a thrilling performance of the
much heralded "Beshazzar's Feast"
and the artistry of Jascha Heifetz in
violin solos with the Chicago Sym-
phony Orchestra.
The capacity of the auditorium
was nearly taxed by the large num-
ber of music patrons. All seats were
taken with the exception of the top-
most ones in the second balcony.
Chase Baromeo, an old favorite of
May Festival audiences,sang the
bass solo role of the oratorio with
the chorus parts performed by the
University Choral Union accompa-
nied by the Chicago Symphony Or-
chestra. Earl V. Moore, University
musical director, conducted the
chorus and orchestra. Palmer Chris-
tion, University organist, and Mabel
Rhead, pianist of the School of
Music, also assisted in the perform-
The oratorio, composed by William
Walton and played for the first time
in England in 1931, has only been
presented two or three times in the
United States within the last few
weeks. It describes the slavery of the
Jews in Babylon, the handwriting
on the wall, and the deliverance of
the children of Israel.
In addition to the Oratorio, Baro-
meo sang the aria, "Confutatis Male-
dictis" by Verdi.
Heifetz Responds to Encore
Following the intermission, Heifetz
played the "Concerto for Violin, D
major, Op. 77 by Brahms. He also
obliged an enthusiastic audience with
"1Havanaise" by Saint-Saens.
Grete Stueckgold, soprano star of
the Metropolitan Opera Company,
will be the main attraction in to-
day's concerts, singing in an all-
Wagner program in commemoration
of the famous composer's death 50
years ago. All numbers at the eve-
ning's concert, including the pres-

tinent. She made her operatic debut
in Berlin,man Mozart's "Cosi fan
Tutti," and has toured Germany,
Austria, Italy, Holland, and other
countries as a recitalist and has sung
as soloist under the baton of the fin-
est orchestra conductors of Europe.
She was chosen as soloist on to-
night's Wagnerian commemorative
program because of her outstanding
artistry in presenting Wagner's
greatest works. Her beautiful sus-
tained tones in the aria, "Eliza-
beth's Prayer to the Virgin," from
"Tannhauser" and other Wagnerian
selections have received acclaim at
her every appearance.

Student, Officers Think

Clues Indicate Possibility
Of Murder, But Officers
Hold Suicide Theory
The unidentified body of a young
man whom sheriff's officers believe
may be a student at the University
was found shot through the head by
a .32 calibre bullet in a woods near
the Michigan Avenue Road just over
the Wayne County line about 6 p. m.
Early this morning the clues to
identification included a retailer's
mark of Masten and Chase, Ann Ar-
bor clothiers, on the dead man's gray
coat, and the monogram "R" on a
white gold signet ring and two plain
white linen handkerchiefs. He wore
no topcoat or hat.
The mannwas about five nineand
one-half inches tall and had curly
brown hair, a light black mustache,
and light blue eyes. He was between
24 and 28 years of age, it is thought.
Two shots had been fired from a
gun found near the body, but only
one bullet was recovered by Wayne
County sheriff's officers. A theory of
suicide is nevertheless entertained.
New Council
Plans To Be
Drafted Soon
Plans for organizing a new form
of student government to replace the
defunct Student Council were under-
way yesterday as Joseph A. Bursley,
dean of students, announced that he
would appoint a committee of lead-
ing seniors to draft a new system.
The dean was in conference with
many of the campus leaders today,
and stated that he would make
known the personnel of the commit-
tee tomorrow.
"There will probably be seven
members on the committee," Mr.
Bursley said, "and they will be sen-
iors so that they may have no sel-
fish interest in the type of govern-
ment that is set up."
The Student Council became a.
dead letter Wednesday night when
all the candidates refused on the eve
of the election to run for office or
to accept the position if elected.

'Gets Millions.
From 3.2 Beer
$9,139,687 Is Revenue
Government Received
During April
WASHINGTON, May 18. - (A) -
Legalized beer added $9,139,687 to
the government's revenue in April
when nearly every other important
form of taxation showed decreases
from the previous month.
Collections from the $5 a barrel
tax on beer brought the government
$8,269,052 while the license fees of
retail and wholesale dealers in the
3.2 beverage added $869,811 and the;
tax on 3.2 wine beverage amounted
'to $824.
While the tax on beer was only
for 23 days after it became legal, if
the salescontinued at the same rate
the collections in a year would
amount to only about $135,000,000
and under some estimates of how
much revenue the government would
receive from this source.
Michigan's contribution to the na-
tional treasury of revenue from sale
of beer during April was only $1,-
522.89, as a result of delay in enact-
ing the state's beer law. Of Michi-
gan's contribution, $831.98 was from
detail dealers at the rate of $20 per
year and $720.91 from wholesale
dealers at $50 per year.

Launches A Lawsuit
-Archie H. Crampton, restaurant
proprietor, today filed suit in Cir-
cuit Court seeking to compel the
City Council of Grandville toap-
prove his application for a license
to sell beer.
The council recently refused to
grant him a license, and Cramp-
ton's suit quotes a ruling by the
attorney general's office that local
legislative bodies must have a
valid reason for refusal to issue a
license. Seven commissioners and

Maj.-Gen. Guy Wilson, command-

Guard and aide to Gov. William A.
Comstock, reviewed the University,
Reserve Officers Trainin Corps at
a ceremony held yesterday afternoon
on South Ferry Field.
Decorations fom proficiency in the
various fields of R. O. T. C. training
were presented at this time by Gen-
eral Wilson. Besides awards to the
captain of the winning company, the
lieutenant commanding the winning
platoon, the winning squad, and the
best-drilled freshmen, a gold medal
was presented to Frederick S. Kohl,
'34E, as the most efficient junior in
the battalion. It was given by the
Ann Arbor chapter of the Officers
Reserve Corps.
After the battalion had passed in
review before the visiting officers
General Wilson made a brief address
in which he stressed the value of
military training, stating that he felt
it was an asset to any man and that
he would later realize more than now
its values. General Wilson stated
that the students are fulfilling their
obligations by insuring that they will
be mentally, physically, and spirit-
ually valuable to humanity.
At the same time Maj. Basil D.
Edwards, commandant of the Uni-
versity corps, announced that all
classes in the department will be
dismissed today, Monday, and Tues-
day, and that final examinations will
be held May 22, 23, instead of May1
25 as was originally scheduled. The
complete schedule will be ready by

The Interfraternity Council last
night started a movement to
"strengthen the fraternity system on

of Bethel B. Kelley, '34, president,
when it adopted by an almost unani-
mous vote the five provisions of the

for the reports to be submitted.
Although the report of the na-
tional secretaries suggested that the
office of the dean of students was
the "logical clearing-house" for such
reports, Joseph A. Bursley, dean of
students, told the delegates that he
would not undertake to manage the
reports unless he was requested to
do so by the Interfraternity Council
and the Alumni Interfraternity Con-
Set Up Requirements
The five requirements to which
fraternities must now conform are
as follows:
(1) An acceptable audit of chap-
ter accounts must be sub-
mitted at the close of each
-(2) A monthly financial state- ,
ment must be submitted.
(3) An operating budget must be
prepared and submitted at
the beginning of each se-

must be appointed, who shall

Explaining how the plan would
work if passed, Joseph A. Bursley
stated, before the vote was taken,
that the "central agency" would refer
the reports to the adult adviser in
case the expenditures should exceed
the budget which was submitted.
Referred to Committee
If no satisfactory action was taken
by the adviser, the matter would be
referred to the judiciary committee of
the Interfraternity Council, composed
of five students, three faculty mem-
bers, and three non-faculty alumni,
all to be members of fraternities rep-
resented at Michigan, he said.
The judiciary committee will then
take the matter up with the national
headquarters of the fraternity,
recommending, if necessary, that the
charter of the local chapter be with-
drawn, according to the dean.
Mr. Bursley said afterwards that
the national fraternity secretaries
had assured him that the national
headquarters of houses so warned
would make further action unneces-
sary by the local authorities.
Some Must Fail
"A certain number of fraternities
on every campus in the country must
fade out of the picture," Mr. Bursley
said, recommending that the council
present a resolution to all national
headquarters of Michigan fraterni-
ties asking that they release any
members so desiring from their fra-
ternal obligations in case a local
chapter should have to close its
doors. No action was taken on the

The Council passed a resolution

Growth Of Summer Sessions
Discussed By Dean E. H. Kraus

Forty years ago the only activities
on the campus during the summer
months were making repairs to
buildings and cutting the lawn, while
last year 4,000 students attended the
Summer Session here. Such has been
the phenomenal growth of "these ex-
periment stations of higher educa-
tion," says Dean Edward H. Kraus
of the Summer Session in a supple-
mentary bulletin just issued.
The summer of 1893 proved to be
the last period in the University's
history that could be dismissed with
no further comment than that the
"lives of all students and teachers
had been preserved." The next year
the new experiment was launched

versity offered courses. Students
came from the 48 states of the Union,
the District of Columbia, and 29 for-
eign countries to attend.
This development of the last 40
years has occurred at all educational
institutions, both private and state,
in all parts of the country, the an-
nouncement says. In recent years
about 400,000 have attended sum-
mer sessions in the United States.
Teachers are coming mdre and
more to predominate among summer
students. At the University here
they made up 60 per cent of the
total enrollment last summer, and
were especially numerous in some
schools and departments.

A program celebrating Interna-
tional Good Will Day, sponsored by
the Tolstoy League, The War Resis-
ters League, and The Student Chris-
tian Association, was presented yes-
terday in Natural Science Auditor-
ium. Three Professors, a minister, an
undergraduate student, and a gradu-
ate student each gave ten minute
speeches expressing his views on

The first speaker, Prof. Roy W.
Sellars of the philosophy department,
stated that war was caused by inter-
national anarchy. "The real causes
of war are not overt reasons but con-
duct arising from social conditions
and lack of rules," Professor Sellars
Prof. Bennett Weaver of the Eng-
lish department gave three methods
for the suppressing of war and the
engendering of international good
will. They were: first, Be intelligent,
