MONROE, Oct. 31.-In a daring
mid-day raid, six bandits slouched
into the National Bank of Monroe
at 12:15 p. m. today, forced 12 em-
ployees to lie on the floor, scooped
up $401000 in cash and escaped amid
a roar of gunfire in which two Mon-
roe policemen were wounded.
The robbery occurred at Front St.
and Washington Ave., one of Mon-
roe's busiest corners, in the presence
of scores of persons out of their of-
fices during the lunch hour.
Alarm is Sounded
The wounded policemen are Pa-
trolman William Lynch and his part-
ner, Charles Kanuth, who responded
to the bank alarm. Kanuth was shot
in the head and in the right arm
when he opened fire on. the gunmen
as they escaped. Lynch was missed
by the flying bullets but sustained
injuries from broken glass when win-
dows were crashed ,in the fusillade.
A third patrolman, Floyd Looker'
rushed from his beat to join the
fight. He was unhurt.
It was. reported that the bandit
car passed through Bolles Harbor
three miles south of here, on the way
to Toledo.

In his recent trip to Germany, Pro-

election had been postponed twice,
and held their election of officers
without any member of the Student
Council present to officiate.
Joseph Zias, president of the
Council, declared the election void
last night but later after having talk-
ed with Prof. E. Blythe Stason, who
presided at the meeting, said that the?
Council would accept the results as
official, even though the Council was1
not represented.
Francis M. Hughes, who was elect-
ed president of the class, told the
Daily reporter last night that mem-
bers of his class were "thoroughly
disgusted with the Student Council."
The election was originally planned
for last Thursday, according to
Hughes, "but ias apparently forgot
all about it and the meeting wasj
postponed until 3 p. m. Monday. Yes-
terday we all met but no Student
Council member showed up, so wej
asked Professor Stason to preside."

the bank. There they brandished
weapons, one of which was a sub-
machine gun, and forced several cus-
tomers to the rear of the lobby
where they were lined up against
a wall.
Vaulting the cashier's cage, one
gunman covered Harold Rammler
collection clerk, and compelled him
to open the door to the bank's safe,
while two others made their way be-
hind the cages, scooping up currency
in the drawers. Three women em-
ployees were locked in an office and
the rest of the employees made to
lie face down on the floor while the
robbery was in progress.
Roy Meyer, assistant cashier, was
forced to unlock a chest within the
vault from which the gunmen took
most of their loot. They then fled
from the bank, opening fire, appar-
ently to intimidate passersby, as they
reached the sidewalk.

"Wars are simply the continuation
of politics, taking a violent form."
Joseph Cohen, of Brooklyn College,
New York City, said last night in a
talk at the Natural Science Audito-
rium, under the auspices of the new-
ly organized Michigan Committee of
the Student Congress Against War.
"In the formation of international
monopolies, we find the world being
divided into spheres of influence. The
extension of the world markets for
surplus goods inevitably leads to the
necessity for redivision of territory,
for new spheres of influence," Mr.'
Cohen quoted, from the manifesto is-
