was advanced as "the only remedy"
for the present situation, and "piece-

were flayed, in a recommendation
drawn up by five University econom-
ists, forwarded tohWashington,and
delivered last night by Prof. I. L.

The committee which framed the
proposal consisted of Professors

of the economics department, and
Dean C. E. Griffin and Professors R.

School of Business Administration.
Steps recently discussed at Lans-

Michigan banks and guard against
too rapid withdrawal of funds, by
segregating the assets of all banks
into "liquid" and "non-liquid" groups
and issuing transferable certificates
for the frozen assets, were regarded

T h e Manufacturers' association
claimed that the governor's procla-

president of the Ann Arbor Clearing

of cash. A new proclamation by Ru-

missioner, releasing the payroll sums
is expected soon, it was said.
Breech Widened
The rift between local merchants
and bankers arising out of the bank
moratoriumf appeared measurably
widened yesterday as local business
men presented a protest to Governor
Comstock' at Lansing on the man-
ner in whilch banks of the Ann Arbor
area are landlng the situation. At
the same time rumors of an impend-

the present restrictions were con-
tinued they would be forced to close,
precipitating a food shortage. "We
do not want to loot the banks,"
Prettyman said, 'but we must meet

"Responsibility is Yours"
"We know," they told the gover-
nor, "that you can open up the banks
for more legitimate business. You
cannot throw off the responsibility
now. If the people don't stand by
you, they are traitors to their state.
We must do something to let business
go on."
Reports circulated among business
men to the effect that a shortage
bf food in the city threatened
brought a denial from Frank Liver-
nois, president of the Retail Gocers
and Meat Dealers' association. Ie
explained that the merchants' de-
mands for cash were due to difficul-

of their bills and not "to any general

DETROIT, Feb. 26.-W- Michi-
gan's bankers, eager for legislation
which would lift, at least in part,
continued limitations on banking
business, tonight saw in passage of
the Couzens bill in Washington the
first definite step toward loosening
'the state's financial jam.
The bill; signed by the President
late today, would give the uomptrol-
er of the currency the same emer-
gency power over national banks as
may be enacted by state legislature.
In Michigan, legislation, is now pend-
ing to enable the segregation of
frozen assets in banks, and to make
available to depositors funds up to
the percentage of liquid assets. The
passage of national legislation, bank-
ers believe, has assured similar ac-
tion by the state legislature next
week. This, they say, would bring
about an immediate reopening for

For Mayor Cermak

"All present indications are that

other glucose injection.
"We probably will allow the patient
to rest."
Mayor Anton Cermak of Chicago
rallied today after a blood transfu-
sion and at 5:15 p. in, his physicians
said he had maintained the gain
made as a result of the treatment.
He was sleeping at that hour and
his daughters, who have kept ananx-
ious vigil at his hospital room door,
went to their Miami Beach home,
cheered by news that their father's
condition had improved.
Cermak was in an oxygen tent,
a treatmentdecided on this morning.
He took nourishment-the first by
mouth in 24 hours-late today and
his physicians issued this bulletin:
"His temperature is 9.9:4; pulse
128; respiration 26." '
Dr. Frederick Tice, of Chicago, one
of the attending physicians, said af-
ter the transfusion: "I have never
been completely downcast, but I am
more encouraged now."
However, another transfusion is
contemplated, probably tomorrow.
Dr. Tice and Dr. Karl Meyer said
soon after the transfusion that their
patient's condition is "more promis-

secretary-general of the League of

Great Britain, addressed to non-
members of the League who are sig-
natories of the Paris Peace Pact or
the Nine-Power Treaty relating to
the Orient.
The League cablegram to which
the American and Russian replies
were eagerly awaited expressed the
hope "that they will associate them-
selves with the views expressed inthe
report and that they will if nee-
sary concert their action and their
attitude with the members of the

as expressed through the League
would bring to an end the long and
bloody conflict that has raged inter-

night of Sept. 18, 1981, when Jap-
anese troops captured the city of
Mukden in Manchuria.
"The American government earn-
estly hopes," says the note, "that the
two nations now engaged in contro-

in friendly relationship with our and
other peoples, may find it possible, in
the light of now clear expression of

between nations shall be settled by
none but pacific means."
For two and a half hours, before

Tennessee Senator who will handle
America's foreign affairs under
Franklin D. Roosevelt, talked it over
with Secretary Henry L. Stimson at

A series of eight weekly lectures
on marital relations and home-mak-

room taboos from time immemorial,
will be offered by the Student Chris-
tian Association, it was announced
yesterday by Sherwood Messner, '34,
a committee chairman of that or-
ganization. The course will be de-
signed especially for serious-minded
students, either married or unmar-
ried, who have an interest in the sub-

Dr. Frank D. Slutz, of Dayton, 0.,
will open the somewhat iconoclastic
series at 8 p. m. March 1 in the Up-
per Room of Lane Hall, with 'The
Problems of Modern Marriage." Dr.
Slutz's lecture will serve as an intro-
duction to the physiological and cul-

of being together," Messner added.
"It is an attempt to help young peo-
ple in their psychological and physi-
ological difficulties. We intend to
make a distinct effort to discuss at
necessary length subjects now con-
sidered unfit for the classroom."
Messner voiced the hope that suc-
cess of the project would force in-
elusion of a sex education course in
the sociology department.
"For some time," Messner declared,
"students of the University have felt
the need for sex instruction. A com-
mittee appointed by the Student
Christian Association has put forth
evcry effort to secure speakers who
are authorities in this field, and we
feel sure that the course will be of

because of its serious nature and of
the bank holiday."

Very good sales for all of the per-
formances for last week were record-
ed, Mr. Windt said.
,'Because there is not a strong emo-

Hedda is not a very attractive char-
acter and because the plot is some-
what sinister," Mr. Windt continued,
"We had a feeling that the show
might not be well received. But many
expressions of personal appreciation
have come in to us which have been
extremely gratifying, as this is un-
doubtedly the hardest play that we
have ever attempted to put on here."
