Members Of Class Of '23
Select Slogan Of 'Join

Rejnlniscences of the days when

the principal building, and East Hall
was a grammar school will be ex-
changed next week when about 25.
members of the Emeritus Club meet
at the time of the annual alumni re-
union Thursday, Friday, and Satur-
day, June 15, 16, and 17.
The Emeritus Club is the offspring
of an informal gathering of .several
years ago, called the Tappan Re-
union. This meeting consisted of
alumni who were on the campus in
the time of the Rev. Henry P. Tap-
pan, first president of the University.
Later it was extended to include'
those on the campus under the ad-I
ministration of the Rev. Erastus O.
*Haven, and, at the suggestion of
Luther Conant, '62-64, of Oak Park,
Ill., the present Emeritus Club was
organized with a membership includ-
ing all those who had been off the
campus more than 50 years.
Membership Is Automatic
,Now, according to Frederick S.
Randall, '23, council secretary of the
Alumni Assocaiton and director of
the 1933 reunion, members of all
classes automatically become mem-
bers of the club on the golden anni-
versary of their graduation. The,
class organization as such continues
until the fiftieth year and then,
without destroying the class organi-
zation, it integrates with the Emer-
itus Cub's -',rganiation. The pur-
pos of the club, Mr. Randall ex-
plainx; i to ~uaint older alumni{
with the present-day campus and
prevent them from "feeling lost"
when returning to a campus of
strange faces.
The Varsity Glee Club Alumni As-
sociation's reunion will, be &nother'
interesting unit of the reunion plans.
This association, composed of men
who sang in the Varsity Glee Club
in their undergraduate days, will
gather in 'an atmosphere of days
filled with tradition-Joe Parker's
Cafe-for luncheon and an after-
noon rehearsal Friday, preparatory
to the Alumni Sing with alumni and
the Varsity Band at 9 p. m. on the
steps of the General Library.
Clas Emblem Is Cup
Members of the literary class of
1923, having taken as their reunion
slogan "Ten Years Out of School
and Back Where We Started," and
as their class emblem a tin cup, will
stage one of the most colorful pro-.
grams of the reunion week-end.
"Join the Poverty Parade," a supple-
mentary slogan, will be the theme of
a Saturday afternoon and night
gathering at Washtenaw Country
Club, halfway between Ann Arbor
and Ypsilanti. Reservations for this
function have poured in at the oun-
try club so rapidly that' club officials
uestion their ability to accommo-
date all the group. A unique feature
of this celebration, which will include
golf, bridge, inter-departmental soft-

ball, and a barbecue dinner, is the
invitation of members of the liter-
,ry class of '23 to engineers and
others of the '23 classes to join them,
aiding in breaking down the frequent
segregation of departments.
The most important features of
Registration Day, Thursday, June 15,
are the meeting and luncheon of the
Alumni Advisory Council. This body
comprises University alumni promin-
ent in the business world, who gave
their time and interest to activities
of the Alumni Association.

Everyone In Lansing Said
To Think The Board Of
Agriculture Is Divine
LANSING, June 3.-{P)-The Sen-
ate investigating committee again
hammered away at the conduct of
the musical education department at
Michigan State College, with fre-
quent clashes between the -commit-
tee and Louis Richards, director, af-
filiated with the Michigan State In-
stitute of Music and Allied Arts.
Richards testified that two-thirds
of the musical fees went to musical
instructors and one-third to the in-
stitute. On the one-third portion for
the institute, he retained 25 per cent
himself, he said, adding that the en-
tire plan was approved by the State
Board of Agriculture, the governing
body of the college.
Answering a question put by 'Sen.
Ray Durham (Rep., Iron Mountain),
"whether you think the taxpayers
should pay for music lessons given
by a private institute?" Richards an-
swered that he regarded the matter
as one for the agricultural board to
"That's the whole trouble with the
institution out there," Durham re-
plied, "everyone seems to think the
Board of Agriculture is vested with
divine rights."
Richards testified that all the in-
stitute's instructors were receiving
less pay than they formerly got on
the concert stage, and expressed the
belief that the institute gave "an
advantage to students" over the so-
called "Ypsilanti plan" in operation
at Michigan State Normal. The di-
rector said that Louis Graveure, fr-
mer head of the voice department
was getting $1,800 for a vocal con-
cert before he joined the institute
Richards said it "was a matter of
an opportunity for service," which
brought the artists to the college.
Richards, a harpsichord artist, said
he had charged $750 for a campus
concert at one time because he was
under contract with his New York
manager not to give free concerts.
The contract since has been changed,
he said.
Sen. Edward B. McKenna (Detroit)
chairman of the investigating com-
mittee, charged that "not one dime
of college music fees ever trickled
back to the college."
Richards denied a charge that he
had sought to use government frank-
ing privileges on bulletins mailed by
the private music institute.
Attempt To Get
East Side Beer
Is Postponed
D e a n Sadler Soliciting
Private Opinions About
Issuing Licenses
Attempts to get beer for sale east
of Division Street were postponed
yesterday when City Attorney Wil-
liam Laird asked that a hearing on
a writ of mandamus brought by Wil-
fred and Ralph Monk, operators of
the New Granada Cafe, 313 S. State
St., be held at a later date. J. Edgar
Dwyer, attorney for the cafe, agreed,
and the hearing was set for Friday,
June 9.
The mandamus was to compel the
Common Council to grant the cafe
a license. The cafe claimed that the
council has no reasonable excuse for
not granting it.
Meanwhile, a new development was
occurring in the beer dispute yester-
day when Ald. Walter Sadler, chair-
man of the council's bond and license

committee, and one of the men who
has consistently voted against beer's
sale in the University neighborhood,
started sending letters to residents
in his district, asking their opinion
on the east of Division Street charter
provision. The cards were a private
poll, Alderman Sadler asking for only
a yes or no vote. Sadler was one of

Christian Gauss Is
To Make Address
At Commencement
Dr. Christian Gauss. '98, dean of
the college at Princeton Univer:ity,
who will deliver the principal address
at the 89th Commencement Jurp 19,
is one of Michigan's most illustrious
sons in tL.a field of education.
Dr. Gauss, who was born in Ann
Arbor in 1878. received his master of
arts degree from the University a
year after h- graduation. From 1899,
to 1901 he was instructor in French
here and then went to Lehigh Uni-
versity where from 1901 to 1905 he
was instructor and assistant profes-
sor of Romance Languages. In 1905
he went to Princeton University;
since 1907 he has been professor of
Romance Languages, since 1913
chairman of the department, and
since 1925 dean of the college.
Known for his astute and "hu-
man" writings on problems and ac-
tivities of a college dean, Dr. Gauss
has become one of the foremost
American educators. His contact with
his alma mater has always been very
close and it was for this fact as well
as his fame as a modern collegiate
educator that he was asked to de-
liver the Commencement address this

Dramatic Season Star

Cut In Price
For Football
Fifty Thousand Seats Will
Be Available For Home
Games At $1.10 Each
Decision Is Made
By Cant Botrd
Reductions Also Made In
Top Prices For Seats In
Reserved Sections
.Fifty thousand tickets for every
football game the Michigan team
plays at home next fall will be made
available at $1.10 each, including
tax, by virtue of a decision reached
by the Board in Control of Athletics
at its meeting yesterday.
The $1.10 seats will include both
the end sections, leaving approxi-
mately 26,000 seats to.be reserved for
students and sold at the reserved
seat prices.
Top prices for reserved seats for
major games were also reduced from
the prevailing high of $3.30 last year,
to $2.75, including Federal tax. This
price applies for the games with
Ohio State, Cornell, and Minnesota.
Tickets for the opener with Michi-
gan State here will sell for $2, in-
cluding tax, while reserved seats for
the Iowa game were set at $2.20.
Athletic Director Fielding H. Yost
pointed out that the plan of selling
general admission tickets at $1 was
tried during the Chicago game last
year and proved popular.
The board also voted appropria-
tions to send Michigan's Conference
championship golf team to the Na-
tional Intercollegiate Meet to be held
in Buffalo late in June. Money was
also set aside for Coach "Charley"
Hoyt to take a track team -to the
National Intercollegiate Meet at.
Chicago June 16 and 17.
The greater part of the six-hour
session was taken up with discus-
sions of retrenchments for next ye .
It was pointed out by several me-
hers that po definite decision could
be reached until the exact amount
appropriated for the Universtiy by
the Legislature and general financial
conditions next fall were -known. In-
stead of making definite decisions a
committee was appointed with full
powers to adjust salaries if need of
such a step arises.
Prof. Arthur E. R. Boak, chairman
of the history department, was
named by President Alexander G.
Ruthven to take the place on the
board of Prof. A. 0. Lee, whose term
has expired.

able to turn out as high quality music
as in past years," Professor Falcone,
the director, said. "If we find that in
future years the Senior Week band

tion we shall put in force a rule per-
mitting members of the Varsity Band

Rollo Peters Spends Leisure
Time In Managing 'Real Farm'

Few people would think of Rollo
Peters, who is to have the part of
Armand in the Dramatic Season pro-
duction of "The Lady of the Camel-
ias," as a farmer, and yet Mr. Peters
spends a great part of his time on his
225 acre farm near New York, he
said in an interview yesterday.
On his place Mr. Peters is grad-
ually reclaiming the land and he
hopes before long to have a farm
that really produces. The farm is in
Rockland County, N. Y., not far from
country houses of Noel Coward, Ina
Claire, Jimmy Durinte, Hope Wil-
liams, Katherine Cornell, and Helen

try homes. I am the only real far-
mer of the lot."

"This Season is really great fun
for me," he said, "as it is the first
time that I have played with Miss
Cowl for eight years, if you exclude
the balcony scene from 'Romeo and
Juliet' which we did about three
months ago over the radio on Rudy
Vallee's radio program. When we
were doing 'Romeo and Juliet' in
1925 we had Clark Gable and Den-
nis King as extras in the cast."
"How did I start acting? Well, it
was rather through the back door.

You may have thought the de-
pression was terrible, but now that
it's apparently all over, you might as
well know that sociologically it did
you a lot of good.
Proof of a substantial change in
student attitudes during depression
years to a greater interest in more
academic subjects and to a more ser-
ious concern over future careers has
been established in a study by mem-
bers of Prof. Robert C. Angell's class
in the sociology of student life.
Professors, administrators, Union
and League officials, ministers, ath-
letic and health authorities, heads
of extra-curricular activities, and 75
seniors and house heads who have
been on campus at least four years
were interviewed or asked to fill out
elaborate blanks in order that a com-
parison might be made between stu-
dent interests in 1929 and at present.
Members of the class who carried

dents might not influence the study,
activities that -cost money were
largely excluded, and an attempt was
made to learn attitudes directly or
to infer them from costless activities.
Among the miscellaneous results
which the committee brought out are
the facts that self-supporting stu-
dents and independents have become
more socially acceptable, that more
students follow a budget and that
fewer believe it is their parents' duty
to send them to college, that stu-
dents are seeking more enduring and
fundamental qualities in t h e i r
friends, that there is less dating, and
that even drinking is "more purpo-
All observers agreed that more in-
terest was being shown in academic
work and that students are studying
more and doing more voluntary sup-
plementary work. There was a gen-
eral feeling that students are worry-
ing more about their careers and
that work is being selected with such
matters in mind._
