Miller Describes
German Gun Used
At SiegeOfParis
Likening the German gun used
in the offensive on Paris to a trem-
mendous internal combustion engine I
which the power of Niagara Falls
would be inadequate to operate, Col.
Henry W, Miller described the -events
leading to the use of the famous bat-
tery and its operation before a ca-
pacity crowd in Natural Science Au-
ditorium last night.
Col. Miller whop is .an internation-
ally recognized ordnance authority,
chief of staff of the United States
railroad artillery during the earlier
years of the war and later in charge
of all heavy artillery, spoke through
the sponsorship of the student
branch of the American Society of
Mechanical Engineers. Besides his
war-time experience he has written
five books now in general use in the
ordnance division of the United
States Army and a book for popular
sale entitled "The Paris Gun."
The inevitability of the war was
explained by referring to the French
attitude toward Germany dating
back to the campaigns of 1870. From
this period Col. Miller traced the
development of heavier artillery.

State's 530 Banks Ready

Detroit House Will Keep
5 Per Cent Withdrawal
Ruling; Other Cities To
Employ Similar Plans
DETROIT, Feb. 22. - (P) - The
question of 'how much money will be
available to depositors in Michigan's
banks tonight remained largely un-I
settled, as the state's 530 institutions
prepared for reopening. Under the
terms of Gov. William A. Comstock's
proclamation, all banks, closed for
the, past eight days under an un-
precedented emergency order, must
reopen Thursday for limited business.
The Detroit Clearing House Associa-
tion, -however, has announced that
the 5 per cent withdrawals permitted
depositors .since last Thursday will
be continued -virtually - extending
the holiday as it was proclaimed last
Tuesday by the governor.

Out-state, where banks generally
have been closed during the emer-
gency holiday, bankers were in
lengthy conferences, seeking to de-
termine the limitations which will be
placed on withdrawals and other'
business, and seeking interpretations
of the terms laid down in the gov-
ernor's second proclamation, issued
Tuesday. '
Detroit Will 4cad '
Generally, it wvas believed, the out-
state banks would follow the leadu of
Detroit, permitting no more than 5
per cent withdrawals, and conducting'
an otherwise limited business until
expected state and national legisla-
tion is passed. Such national legisla-
tion passed the Senate today, and
similar action is before the Michigan
House of Representatives.
Several cities have already an-
nounced plans for permitting with-
drawals of 5 per cent, among them
Grand Rapids, Flint, Pontiac, Lan-
sing, Muskegon, and Ann Arbor. Port
Huron has decided upon 3 per cent
withdrawals, but elsewhere midnight
conferences were awaited to deter-
mine restrictions under which the
general reopening will be held.
Today-a legal holiday-saw no
let-up in the numerous conferences
of bankers and state officials, seek-
ing to terminate as rapidly as pos-
sible the emergency holiday that fol-
lowed Governor Comstock's procla-
mation last Tuesday of an "acute
emergency" in the affairs of the
Union Guardian Trust Co., a Detroit
Rudolph E. Reichert, state bank-
ing commissioner, stated that pas-
sage of the state banking bill now
before the House "should restore con-
fidence in the state's banks" and said
establishment of new laws for bank-
ing operations, giving the state au-
thority to dictate a plan of opera-
tion to banks in unsound condition,
awaited only the Legislature's action.
Couzens' Measure Adopted
Meanwhile, in Washington, the
Senate adopted without debate the
resolution introduced by Sen. James
Couzens (Rep., Mich.) authorizing
the comptroller of the currency to
adopt any emergency regulations for
national banks that are applied to
state institutions by state legisla-
tures. The proposal would remain in
effect only one year. Such action,
Michigan banking officials said, would
give the banking commissioner and
Governor Comstock absolute power
in banking operations when emer-
gency conditions arise.
Under the Michigan plan now be-
ing considered, the state would be
given authority to step into a bank
that is approaching unsound condi-
tion and restore the situation by lim-
iting deposit withdrawals, sequester-
ing slow assets, and establishing trust
deposits. Slow assets would be liqui-
dated when they return to normal
values and the proceeds would be
paid to depositors. Thus, the bank-

A constitutional amendment to
permit county home rule and to set
up alternative forms of county gov-
ernment, drafted by Professors
'homas H. Reed and Arthur W. Bro-
mage, of the political science depart-
ment, was initiated in the form of a
joint resolution yesterday in the
State Senate, it was learned last
The measure was introduced by
Sen. Gordon F. Van Eenenaam, Rep.,
of Muskegon. If it passes both houses
by the required two thirds majority,
it will be submitted to the people in
the spring elections.
Was Part of Report
The amendment was drafted by
Professors Reed and Bromage as part
of a report prepared by them at the
request of Ex-Governor Brucker's
Commission of Inquiry into County,
Township, and School District Gov-
One of the recommendations made
in this report was that county boards.
of supervisors be altered in order to
take the majority power , from the
hands of rural minorities and placet
it with city majorities, in counties
where rural minorities under the
present system are able to elect a
majority of the boards' members.
This recommendatioi, regarded by
Profe sors Reed and Bromage asf
fundamental, was rejected by the
Governor's commission when it made
its preliminary report in December.
The recommendation is included in
the amendment introduced yesterday
by Senator Van Eeenenaam.
Other Proposals
The proposed amendment would
authorize the electors of any county
to frame, adopt, or amend a charter
for its government, which charter,
in addition to naming the number
of supervisors and the method of
their election, could provide for the
continuance or discontinuance of the
organized townships in the county,
and the transfer of any or all of the
powers now exercised by townships
or township officers to officers of the
county or state; for the election or
appointment of all constitutional
county officers; for the election or
appointment of a general county exe-
cutive; for the exercise by the county.
of local legislative and administrative
powers; and for the organization of
a court or courts to take the place
of the present system of justice of
the peace.

The Ann Arbor Clearing House
Association last night announced
that its members, which include all
the banks in Ann Arbor, would cash
checks only when they were drawn
on "trust funds" to be created by the
individual depositor's withdrawing 5
per cent from his regular account
and opening a new account with this

posit departments of the banks.
The clearing association announced
further that all checks which have
been written during the past week
are to be returned to the ones who
made them, and that new checks,
drawn on the "trust funds," are to
be issued in their place.
Complete Proclamation
The proclamation of the clearing
house follows in full:
"The situation regarding checks
in transit is hopelessly complicated
by the governor's proclamation. To
clarify this situation the bank de-
partment has proposed the following
"1. Return all such checks to the
point of issue.
"2. Issue. new checks subject to
whatever limitations are imposed by
the individual banks upon which the
checks are drawn.
"To provide funds for the payment
of such new checks will of necessity
require the opening of a new account
in the trust deposit department in
which may be deposited the 5 per
cent that is being refunded present-
ly, together with any new funds that
have been deposited since Feb. 11
and that are hereafter deposited.

Marriage Can Be Millstone Or

School, issued to college men last
night in a lecture at the Union open-

"When a young man marries he
hangs something around his neck-a
millstone, a doughnut, or a life pre-
server. Only too frequently it is a
millstone or a doughnut, for the life
preserver type of women is willing to
wait until a man has established
himself in his career."
Character and personality are two
of the most valuable assets which a
young man going out into the busi-

the young man upon leaving college
is "findng himself," said Dr. Stevens.
Too many want to step into their
desired careers immediately, without
climbing the ladder, and as a result
fail to make the mark.
Choosing a field of specialization
too soon is one of the greatest errors4
made by a large number of students
today, continued Dr. Stevens. Fre-
quently a student who takes a pre-
medical or pre-law course, finds later
that he is more interested in some
other field of work. Mistaking some
particular talent as a career is the
cause of this early specialization, said
Dr. Stevens.
"Develop all of your possible abili-
ties, however," advised Dr. Stevens,
"for one can never tell when he
might be forced to fall back on some

The announcement was first made
last night at a meeting of more than
300 retail merchants in the Chamber
of Commerce Building. and aroused
a storm of discussion and contro-
versy. Many retail merchants claim-
ed that they had already accepted
checks which the signers, particu-
larly if they are students in the uni-
versity, would not be able to cover

After a lengthy discussion of the
situation, the Chamber of Commerce
decided to print a form letter which
retail merchants may send to their
customers." In substance, the letter
will say that while it is impossible to
cash checks which have been written
during the past week, the makers of
these checks are under obligation to
pay them even if a 5 per cent with-
drawal of their total deposits will
not now cover the sum. Some mer-
chants indicated that they would
keep such checks instead of "return-
ing them to the point of issue," as
the clearing house statement asks.
Walz Makes Statement
William Walz, president of the Ann

checks made out on the newly cre-
ated "trust funds" would be marked
