"Sharers in the risk of underwrit-
ing" was the persistent designation
given these customers by George
Whitney, a member of the firm, who
spent most of the day outlining the
organization of The United Corp., a
Morgan utility holding group, while
J. P. Morgan sat quietly by.
Repeatedly Whitney objected to
describing as "preferred" or "fa-
vored" those clients to whom stock
was sold at cost prices-prices much
below market quotations of a few
days later-despite Senatorial prod-
dings into public connections of the
buyers and .iust what the "risk" was.
The Banking Committee members
found one of its own members-Sen-
ator Hamilton Kean, (Rep., N. J,)-
on the list of those who were sold for
$75 units of United stock that were
quoted just a little later on the mar-
ket at $99.
Kean's firm of Kean, Taylor &
Co., bought 500 units.
Sen. William Gibbs McAdoo (Dem.,
Calif.), also appeared on this third
list of customers as the purchaser of
250 units, each unit consisting of one
share of preferred and one share of
common. McAdoo also had peen

broad smile.

J. Edgar Dwyer will represent the
restaurant at the hearing Saturday.
He has acted as attorney for the
State St. stores during the contro-
versy. The New Granada Cafe was
selected to make the court applica-
tion, since its equipment satisfies all
portions of the state beer law and no
technical reason may be advanced by
the city for the license refusal.
In their application for a writ of
mandamus, the proprietors of the
cafe claimed that the council had re-
fused their application "without rea-
sonable cause or valid reason," and
that the refusal had resulted in a
loss of business to the establishment.

Intoxication At Swingout
Arouses Disapproval Of
Public And Faculty
Several members of the senior
class face disciplinary action by the
University for being under the influ-
ence of liquor during the Swingout
ceremonies, according to rumors last
night. Any action which the discip-
linary, committee may take will be
made public today, it was learned.
The case of a sophomore woman
who was involved in the affair was
brought before the judiciary commit-
tee of the Women's Self-Governing
Association, and the recommendation
of that body is now in the hands of
Dean Alice C. Lloyd. The charges
brought against her were not made
The students involved have been
brought before the disciplinary com-
mittee and may either be suspended
from the University or required to
take additional hours for graduation,
which will necessitate their returning
to the University for additional work.
Swingout, a tradition of long
standing, may be done away with as
a result of the intoxication of many
members of the senior class during
the ceremonies which took place May
16, according to reports. The cere-
monies this year were a "disgrace to
the University" in the opinion of
many members of the faculty, and
it is believed that a movement by
faculty members towards abolishing
the tradition is already under was.
The Student Council, in former
years, has had the responsibility of
running the Swingout ceremonies,
but due to the demise of that body
this spring, no organization was held
responsible. It was the consensus of
opinion among many of the students
that the affair lacked organization
this year.

tures of the "ex-officio" plan, was

dence on campus, not necessarily a

ample, that the Michigan Union and

tions; the Union to handle class
