By Three-To-One Major-

Adoption Urged By Many
City Officials To Make
R. F. C. Loan Possible
By nearly a three-to-one majority,
Ann Arbor citizens yesterday ap-
proved an amendment to the city
charter which would place the pro-
posed sewage treatment plant upon
a self-liquidating basis. Every ward
voted affirmatively, with the total
result being, Yes: 2,142; No: 760.
The victory for the amendment
was complete. In every ward the af-
firmative side won easily, with the
votes in the eastside district-the
sixth and seventh wards-over-
whelmingly in favor of the amend-
The vote by wards was as follows:
First 187 yes, 57 no; Second, 290 yes,
162 no; Third, 282 yes, 135 no;
Fourth 213 yes, 133 no; Fifth, 114
yes, 30 no; Sixth, 359 yes, 55 no Sev-
enth, first precinct, 201 yes, 87 no;
Seventh, second precinct, 496 yes,
101 no.
Adoption of the amendment, which
was urged by all important city offi-
cials, places the city in a position
where it may borrow from the R.F.C.
sufficient money to build the sewage
treatment plant. Without the amend-
ment, the R.F.C. would not have
loaned the money, inasmuch as the
corporation can loan money only to
self-liquidating projects.
If the Common Council can now
get the money, a large number of
welfare workers and their families,
numbering nearly 2,000, will be sup-
plied with work for the immediate
future. Without the money, the
workers would have been left with-
out money for food, clothing and
The council plans to borrow $550,-
000 from the R.F.C. With this money
the city would build a plan of 5,-
000,000 gallon capacity. The money
would be spent as follows: the treat-
ment plant itself, $360,000; the Fuller
Street pumping station, $15,000; and
the down river sewer, $175,000. $200,-
000 would be spent on materials and
$330,000 on labor.
An~na Enters
Well Received
Celebrated Dancer Gives
First Of Two Recital
In Dramatic Season
Before a large and enthusiastic
audience, Angna Enters, the distin-
guished dance-mime, last night pre-
sented her first series of "composi-
tions in dance form" at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
Unique in that her dances each
tell a definite story, Miss Enters pro-
vided Ann Arbor theatregoers with

an unusual presentation. Using all
the mediums which the stage affords,
the actress-dancer entertained with
14 varied interpretations. Her own
lighting effects, personally designed
costumes, and special musical ar-
rangements provided a background
suitable for her different "episodes."
Outstanding among her dancess
was "Delsarte-with a.not too classi-
cal nod at the Greeks" and her num-
bers from the Spanish suite. She was
accompanied by Kenneth Yost, of
New York City.
Miss Enters, who has recently
concluded a successful season in New
York, will present her second and
last Ann Arbor recital tomorrow

terday after a lingering illness since
January. He was 85 years old.
Funeral arrangements have not

years after graduation he was em-
ployed as demonstrator in anatomy.
He was instructor in Materia Medica
from 1887 to 1889 and in Materia
Medica and Theuroputics from 1889
to 1890.
He was invited by members of the
German element of Ann Arbor to
practice here and since 1872 has
served continually up until March 6.
He is believed atohave practiced
longer in Washtenaw County than
any other physician.
Dr. Georg was widely known in
Ann Arbor for his general practice
and established a reputation by his
treatment of nervous diseases. He
was one of the most colorful per-
sonalities in the country, until 16
years ago driving a topless horse
carriage in all sorts of weather.
He served for a time as city health
officer and later as coroner for two
terms on the Democratic ticket. At
the recent election, Dr. Georg led
the fight against the use of river
water declaring that it was polluted
by drainage from cemeteries and
other infected places.
Dr. Georg was a member of the
American Medical Association, State
Medical Society, Washtenaw Medical,
Society, Oddfellows and the Unitar-
ian Church.
He is survived by Dr. Conrad
Georg, Jr., and Miss Louise Georg,

Michio anensian
Is Distributed
To Subscribers
1933 Year-Book Contains
Many New Features And
Several Photographs
The 1933 Michiganensian made its
formal bow to the campus yesterday
when the general distribution be-
gan at the Student Publications
Building. The cover, done in blue
leather with gold lettering, is mod-
ern without being modernistic.
The features in this year's book
are especially good. There are sev-
eral pages of interior and exterior
views of various campus buildings,
including the League, Angell Hall,
the University Museums and the Law
Commons. There are also layouts of
the J-Hop, portions of buildings and
one of a front page of The Daily
forming the background for numer-
ous clippings.
The pages which separate the dif-
ferent sections of the book are espe-
cially good this year. They are made
up of pencil sketches representing
the theme of the section mounted on
heavy blue paper.
There is' a large satire section con-
taining distorted photographs pf the
campus leaders for the past year.
Four or five pages are devoted to
portraits of the 'Ensian's selections
for the beauty hall of fame.
After the general distribution,
there will be 30 or 40 copies left
which will be sold at $5, according
to members of the staff.
