Owls may be very wise birds, but
it seems to Ted Vanderveen, '33E,
that they have no appreciation of the
values of gratitude.
Vanderveen was walking along
North University Avenue near Bar-

when he noticed two small baby
birds, who had evidently fallen{
from their nests. Somewhat of a na-
ture lover, and touched by the spring
air, he stooped to pick up the tiny

Mooney Case
Goes To Court
On Last Charge'
- The State Supreme Court late
.today denied the petition of John
O'Garra, attorney and law professor,
for a writ of mandate to compel
Superior Judge Louis Ward to dis-
miss the r e m a in in g indictment
against Thomas J. Mooney, convicted
Preparedness Day parade bomber.
The decision means that Mooney
will go on trial tomorow.
In a brief order denying the peti-
tion, the court declared O'Garra, a
private citizen, was "unqualified to
commence the action on behalf of
the people of the state of California
without the consent of the state at-
torney general."

Davis Gives
Arms Policy
In Address
Declares That Armament
Race Would Eventually
Throw World Into War
Willing To Abandon
Policy Of Isolation
Interpreted As Meaning
America Would Respect
Mutual Blockade
(By The Associated Press)
The world's progress toward out-
lawing war brought an official state-
ment Monday that the United States
would in the interests of peace,
under certain circumstances, aban-
don its policy of international isola-
The message was taken before the
disarmament conference at Geneva
by Norman H. Davis, American am-
Declaring that an international
race in armament building eventu-
ally would throw the world into war,
Davis said the United States was
willing to go as far as any other na-
tion in disarming.
He said that America would con-
fer with other nations in the event
peace were menaced. If America
agreed with the other countries con-
cerning the identity of the aggressor
nation, he continued, then it would
refrain from any action to hinder
collective efforts to restore peace.
Members of the League of Nations
believed Davis meant the United
States would respect a blockade
against a nation guilty of military
Concretely, the American doctrine
was interpreted to mean that the
British Navy now can feel more free
to help the League of Nations keep
the peace because it will be in no
danger of coming to grips with the
American Navy.
After announcing that the United
States was willing to consult with
the other states in case of a threat
to peace, Mr. Davis set forth the
American policy in these words:
"Further than that, in the event
that the states, in conference, deter-
mine that a state has been guilty of
a breach of the peace in violation
of its international obligations and
take measures against the violator,
then, if we concur in the judgment
rendered as to the responsible and
guilty party, we will refrain from
any action tending to defeat such
collective effort which these states
may thus make to restore peace."
Messner Forming
Y.M.C.A. Delegation
Sherwood A. Messner, president of
the Student Christian Association, is
now forming a group to go to the
Summer Student Conference of the
Central Field Council of Y. M. C. A.'s
which will be held June 10 to 21 at
the camp on Lake Geneva, Wis., and
at Chicago.
There will be speeches and discus-
sion groups at the camp led by nota-
bles such as Sherwood Eddy and
Maynard C. Kreuger. The camp will
be divided into tent groups of 10 to
12 boys for discussion of current
The conference will spend five
days in Chicago during which time
they will visit the Centuy of Prog-
ress Exposition. The complete cost

of the 10 days is $29.85 which covers
all ordinary expenses.

Possibility Of
Audits Looms
For Houses
Interfraternity Committee
May Require Accounting #
Each Semester
Group To Discuss
Plan Thoroughly
Must Set Up 'Central

Agency' To Act Upon
Financial Revelations
Requirement of an audit for this
semester's fraternity accounts loomed
as a possibility yesterday as the com-
mittee which was appointed at the
last meeting of the Interfraternity
Council to establish a "central
agency" to act as a clearing-house
for the reports which must be sub-
mitted under the new council plan
announced that it would make a re-
port in the near future.
It was hoped originally that the re-
port would be ready for the meeting
of the judiciary committee of the
council to be held Tuesday night, but
members of the committee believed
that it is advisable "not to rush into
this thing too fast."
There is no use having an audit,
according to one committeeman, un-
less there is an agency to take care
of the reports which must be sub-
mitted. The committee, although it
has power to act without referring
its decision to the council as a whole,
must report to the judiciary commit-
tee before the action becomes bind-
Many houses already have audits
made of their books at the end of
each semester, and, according to
Maxwell T. Gail, '34, secretary-treas-
urer of the council, the council will
make a survey to find out how many
and what fraternities are doing this
service at present. "In that case,"
Gail said, "it will be necessary only
to submit the reports to the central
agency, after it has been picked."
Designation of adult financial ad-
visers, in accordance with the plan
has been going on rapidly, according
to Bethel B. Kelley, '34, council pres-
dent, who said he hopes to have the
process completed before the end of
the year.
Vigorous administration of the
plan is the program which the newly'
elected president outlined yesterday,
saying that that was the best way to
"keep houses out of the red."
Sink Gratif ied
At Response To
"The fine attendance and enthusi-
asm which the public showed for last
week's May Festival is a justification
of the efforts of those musical pio-
neers who founded the University
Musical Society in 1879," Charles A.
Sink, president of the organization,
declared yesterday in commenting
on the success of the recent season.
"It is gratifying to have such a
splendid response at this time when
so many of the musical events all
over the country have had to be
suspended or radically curtailed," he
said. The attendance was said to
be about the same as last year.

Dr. Albert A. Stanley, former presi-
dent of the society,carried outsos
successfully for many years has
borne fruit and was sufficient to

Ann Arbor enjoys could not be dis-

Hospital Services
Overcro wed With
Measles Epidemic
With University Hospital accom-
modations exhausted, the epidemic of
German, red, and black measles,
which has been raging with varying
intensity since the beginning of the
semester, is bringing five or six cases
a day to the Health Service for treat-
Of the 80 cases reported so far this
year, 40 have occurred in the month
of May alone. The contagion ward
of the University Hospital is full, and
arrangements have been made with a
private nursing institution to care for
the increasing number of patients.
According to Dr. Warren E.
Forsythe, director of the Health
Service, the present epidemic is a
natural phenomenon of the disease
which occurs periodically every 15 or
20 years. Its last major appearance
on the campus was in 1916 and 1917
when approximately 100 cases were
reported. Since that time only one or
two cases a year have been noted.
German measles, of which almost
all of the present epidemic is com-
posed, is particularly hard to check
because, in the length of time after
exposure before its symptoms show,
the disease is most contagious. The
earliest indications, a slight cold and
sore throat, enlargement of the
lymph glands (in the neck near the
ears), a rash on the face and chest,
and a general feeling of sickness
occur as late as two weeks after ex-
posure. Students who do not notice
these characteristics of the illness
continue their rounds of activities
without reporting to the Health
Service, thereby spreading the dis-
Although this type of measles is
not very severe, inflicting a confine-
ment of only four to seven days, the
student's accompanying lowered re-
sistance, causes him to run the risk
of contracting a major ailment such
pneumonia. With observation and
care, cultures can be taken to watch
for such an eventuality.
It is urged that students watch for
the early indications of the measles

so as to curb
ination time.

S.C.A. Tag Day
Nets $700 For
Summer Camp
Foodstuffs And Supplies 1
Being Solicited From
Local Merchants
A little over $700 was collected this
year in the annual "tag day" drive,
sponsored by the Student Christian
Association to raise funds for the
support of the University of Michi-
gan Summer Fresh Air Camp for
underprivileged boys, according to
George G. Alder, camp director. This
sum is $300 less than the amount
collected last year.
"We were quite pleased with the
returns from the campus," Mr. Alder
stated, "the decrease in 'tag day'
funds was expected and to counter-
act the deficit we have formulated
a plan whereby over 80 merchants
in Ann Arbor and Detroit are being
solicited for camp supplies and food-
stuffs." He added that notable suc-
cess has been achieved in this plan
already by Gordon Halstead, Grad.,
associate director of the camp, whb
is in charge of the soliciting. The
American Red Cross has donated
2,000 pounds of flour which will take
care of the bread-making problem,
Mr. Alder said.
As another economic feature, not
utilizedhheretofore, Mr. Adler said
that they will grow all their own
vegetables for the table in gardens
on the camp grounds.
Mr. Adler believes that in spite of
the decrease in "tag day" collections
they will have enough funds to be
able to handle 350 boys in the eight
weeks period that the camp will be
open. Three two-week sessions of
the camp will be held for boys from
the ages of 11 to 15 and one two-
week session for those boys of 16
and 17 years. The camp will formal-
ly open June 26. The list of volun-
teer counsellers, who are chiefly Uni-
versity students, will be announced
at an early date.

the Union's installation banquet to
be held at 6:15 p. m. tonight on the
second floor terrace of the Union, it
was announced yesterday. At the

Sitting with the board of directors
after the banquet, Saltzstein will out-

John H. Huss, '33, present record-

stein, and McCormick will all speak
at the banquet. John Lederle, retiring
president, will serve as toastmaster.
Charms will be presented to commit-
teemen, to members of the executive
council, and to the board of directors
of the Union.
Saltzstein plans to make his ap-
pointments of committee chairmen
and assistant chairmen at the ban-
quet, it was said. Each of the five
Union committees -house, dance,
underclass, reception, and publicity-
consists of ami appointive chairman
and two assistant chairmen in addi-
tion to other members from the
freshman and sophomore classes.
Considerable interest will be man-
ifested in the banquet and in Dean
Bates' address, Lederle said, for Dean
Bates is widely known as one of the
first to urge the formation of a stu-
dent club such as the Union.
Comstock Here
In Consultation
With Advisers
Stason And Caverly Will
Aid Governor Drawing
Up Retail Sales Tax
LANSING, May' 22. - ) --Gov.
William A. Comstock and his legal
adviser, Ferris H. Fitch, left late
Monday for Ann Arbor to confer
with the advisory committee which
drew the administration sales and
gross income-tax bill.
The governor has insisted the
measure, to produce the desired
amount of revenue, must provide for
a retail sales tax, plus a levy on
manufactured products, utility and
professional services. The Senate
taxation committee has tentatively
agreed virtually to scrap the admin-
istration bill in favor of a straight
retail sales tax.

Indications were the governor and
the advisory committee would seek
to draft amendments to the admin-
istration bill for submission to the
Senate committee, in the hope of
saving the combined levies. They
also planned to change the provision
to comply with an Illinois Supreme
Court ruling which held sales taxes
excepting farm produce and gasoline
are unconstitutional.
Some members of the Senate com-
mittee indicated they would not alter
their views. They insisted that in

Heated Debate Results In
Verdict Against State
Street Merchants, 8-7.
Beer will be on sale east of Division
Street in four drug stores, but not
in restaurants or beer gardens, with-
in a few days as a result of action
taken last night by the Common
Council at City Hall. The drug stores
which received approval are Fenn
Drug Co., 103 N. Forest St., Witham
Drug Store, 601 S. Forest St., Swift's
Drug Store, 340 S. State St., and
Gratton Drug, 900 S. State St.
All members of the council ap-
proved the bond and license commit-
tee's report granting the permits to
the drug stores, but the report stat-
ing that restaurants and beer gar-
dens east of Division Street would be
given "no further consideration as
their applications were not consistent
with the city charter," caused an ex-
tended, and at times bitter, debate.
Sadler Submits Report
After Ald. Walter Sadler, chairman
of the bond and license committee,
had submitted his report and moved
its adoption, Ad. Donald Meyer
made a substitute motion to grant
permits to all east of Division Street
applicants who conformed with state
and city regulations,
"Mr. Chairman, I rise on a point
of order," Alderman Sadler said.
"The motion is out of order with re-
spect to Sectiqg 88, paragraph 3, of
the city ordinances."
Pres. E. E. Lucas ruled that the
motion was out of order.
Alderman Meyer asked for an ap-
peal from the chair and Lucas called
for a roll call. The president's deci-
sion was sustained, 8 to 6.
Ald. Max Krutsch arose to speak.
"Krutsch is out of order," Ald. Wil-
liam Hollands suddenly interrupted.
"I think you're out of order," Pres-
ident Lucas said. "Let's read the
committee's report again to see how
again read the committee's report.
Ald. William Faust arose and re-
marked, "There is no question' that
we are simply holding this up be-
cause we have no authority from the
attorney general to change the Divi-
sion Street charter provision. We
simply can't grant permits when the
charter prohibits us from so doing."
"Still Out of Order?"
During all this discussion Alder-
man Krutsch had remained on his
feet. "Am I still out of order?" he
"Well, go ahead. We'll let you
talk," President Lucas said.
Krutsch claimed that the beer was
non-intoxicating, and the granting of
licenses to down-town merchants
while not granting them to mer-
chants east of Division Street was
unjust discrimination.
Prof. William C. Hoad, of the en-
gineering college, then arose from the
floor to speak for the dry side. "I
believe the charter provision is a
wise one,"he said. "I have been
teaching men for a long time. They
are youngsters, like yours and mine,
and they are immature, impression-
able. If we exposed the high school
and university section to liquor sales
it would result in the increased use
of alcohol by these immature people."
Crowd Boos
Booing and hissing, coupled with a
stamping of feet, greeted these state-
ments, and President Lucas had to

rap for order. "If this disorder con-
tinues, we'll clear the hall," he
Professor Hoad continued, "We
must remember that these college
students are not seasoned. It will be a
sorry sight to sell them alcohol in
the University section."
After some more debate, a vote was
finally taken. It resulted in a defeat
for the east of Division Street mer-
chants, 8 to 7, President Lucas cast-
ing the deciding vote.
