Shortly after 3 p. m. Tuesday Gov-

G.O.P. Selects
Delegates To
State Meeting
Fireworks Mark Initial
Session Of Republican
County Convention
Rebellious Element
'Takes Over Control
Insurgents Place Men In
All Important Positions;
Laird Is Chairman
Fireworks which opened the Re-
publican county convention here yes-
ierday morning in the selection of
officers for the session subsided in the
afternoon as the delegates went
through the routine procedure of se-
lecting delegates to the state conven-
tion at Grand Rapids.
When the convention opened at
the County building at 11 a. m., the
rebels immediately took over its con-
trol from the officers selected by the
county committee. Joseph C. Hooper,
circuit court commissioner, the com-
mittee-picked chairman, was voted
down decisively in favor of William
Laird, city attorney, who immediately
took over control of the meeting.
Resolutions and reports submitted by
the insurgents replaced those which
the regular organization had drafted.
Miss Eleanor Meston of Ypsilanti
was selected as temporary secretary
of the convention. Fred M. Green-
street, secretary of the county com-
mittee, relinquished direction of the
procedure to the newly-elected offi-
cers immediately.
Rudolph E. Reichert, county chair-
man, was in Lansing on official busi-
ness in connection with the confer-
ence on the bank holiday. Chairman
Laird asked for party harmony d-
spite the uprising, pointing out that
the party needed a united front at
the present time more than it ever
had. He predicted that the present
Democratic office-holders would be
ousted in the next state election.
Grants Aid To
Sorority Girls
Women students who were made
temporarily homeless and who lost
most of their belongings in the fire
that virtually destroyed the Alpha
Gamma Delta chapter house early
Sunday morning will be given such
assistance by the national organiza-
tion as will permit them to remain
in school, it was learned last night.
Clothing that was destroyed will be
replaced and that which was dam-
aged will be reconditioned.
The offer from the national head-
quarters may permit the students to
decline the offer made by Dean Alice
C. Lloyd by which a considerable
amount of money would have been
withdrawn from the Emergency Fund
maintained through the Dean's office.
"We understand such rumors are
in circulation," said Miss Florence
Hiscock, Grad., chairman of the
executive committee. "If anything,
the present situation will serve to
strengthen the ties between the chap-
ter and our national headquarters.
Although temporary quarters for
the organization have not been an-
nounced as yet, the League has made
an attractive offer and the sorority

may live there until permanent quar-
ters are determined.

Consolidation, Abolition
Of Townships In Report
Inefficiency Found
In Numerous Units



work during the past semester from
the 134 students asked to withdraw
a year ago was revealed yesterday in
reports from the offices of Wilber R.
Humphreys, assistant dean of the lit-
erary college.
Only 112 students have been con-
sidered for withdrawal this year as
compared to the 174 interviewed for
that reason a year ago. These in-
complete figures show that only 89
have been asked to leave the Uni-
versity this year.
Dr. John R. Effinger, dean of the
literary college, believes that there
are four factors which have played
an important part in decreasing the
number on this year's home lists.
First of these is the withdrawal plan
adopted a year ago by the Adminis-
trative Board. Under this arrange-
ment some students whose work re-
quires that they be asked to with-
draw are given an opportunity for I
immediate reinstatement without be-'
ing forced to leave the University for
one semester.
After such reinstatement, a stu-
dent i$ regarded as having his sec-
ond and final trial, and if his scho-
I lastit work fails to improve, he is
forced to withdraw permanently
from the University. Dean Effinger'
p inted out that since this plan was

Roosevelt Chooses Cordell

The first published summary of a
highly controversial report on county
and township government in Mich-
igan, which has been prepared by
Professors Thomas H. Reed and Ar-
thur W. Bromage, of the political
science department, appears in the
current issue of the American Polit-
ical Science Review. The summary
was written by Professor Bromage.
County Boards Unwieldy,
Professors Reed and Bromage
made their report for Ex-Governor
Brucker's commission of inquiry into
county, township, and school dis-
trict government, at the request of
the commission. It was based on the
study and analysis of detailed factual
information gathered in six typical
counties by graduate students in the
curriculum in municipal administra-
tion. When the commission made its
preliminary report, in December, it
rejected a number of reform pro-
posals which Professors Reed and
Bromage have said they consider
These reform measures are em-
bodied in the form of a constitu-
tional amendment. They would make
possible the merging and abolition of
townships, and the abolition of
county boards of supervisors, as in-
dividual localities desired such
According to Professor Bromage's
summary, he and Professor '.4eed
"have discovered that townships: are
performing at considerable expense
and in an inefficient manner" nu-
merous functions, including assess
ing, levying, and collecting taxes.
"The report," according to Professor
Bromage, "indicates that the town-
ship has become an unnecessary and
therefore a wasteful unit of govern-
Commission Requested Report
Commenting on the county boards
of supervisors, Professor Bromage
says that he and Professor Reed
found them to be unwieldy, and "not
appropriate agencies to control even
the few administrative officers sub-
ject to appointment."
According to Professor Bromage's
summary, the report also shows the
"extreme need for county consoli-
dation in the northern part of the
Lower Peninsula," and recommends
that the legislature create "a sepa-
rate commission to study possible
consolidations, and that pursuant to
its findings the legislature, by a gen-
eral. mandatory act or by special acts
subject to local referenda, attempt to
reconstitute county areas."
