With only one day left in which

unsold tickets last night were taken
to the Union and to Van Boven's,
State St., where they may be pro-
cured today.

Sir Launcelot, In
1932 Dress, Rides
Nag For Publicity
There's one born every minute, and
two to tape him.
Just whether Lawrence Levy, '34,
who rode a horse for Play Production
yesterday as a publicity stunt, was
the sucker or the come-on man is
hard to tell.
Levy, wearing an orange wig, black
fedora, House of David beard, and
tattered trousers, sat on his nag in
the exact middle of the campus from
11 a. m. to 1 p. m., exhorting students
to witness the real "Beggar on Horse-
back," which is Play Production's
next offering.
The rider got away with his act
well enough, but seemed to turn'
rather green about the gills when-
ever the horse reared in pain. (From

As wet and dry leaders lined up
their forces for a vote on the propo-
sition in the House Monday, Senator
Robinson of Arkansas, Democratic'
floor leader, promised quick action on
both repeal and beer measures if and
when they reach the Senate after
House action.

Party leaders conceded that if the
form of the repeal resolution spon-
sored by Speaker Garner stipulat-
ing convention ratification is revised
by the judiciary committee a situa-
tion might arise whereby the House
would have an opportunity to vote
on the original measure as well as
on the amended legislation.
With reports of additional support
from both Republicans and Demo-
crats, however, the Vice-President-
elect appeared more determined to
force the Democratic proposal to a!
vote. "Our prospectsare good," he
Back from a conference with Pres-
ident-elect R oosevelt at Warm
Springs, Ga., Senator Robinson said
he thought some question would be
raised as to the form of the Garner
resolution because of the provision

tection to dry states.
Foresees Limitations.
"I think," the Arkansan said, "some
question is going to be raised in the
Senate for some limitations on the
Garner resolution."
Shortly afterward, Senator Robin-
son (Rep., Ind~) took an unaltered
stand against changing the Federal
liquor laws but predicted that beer
would be legalized at the short ses-
sion. He said he was anxious to de-
lay action on repeal and beer legis-
lation until the Democrats come into
control of Congress.
A call to the House Republican
wet bloc to meet Monday morning
to consider the Garner resolution was
issued by its chairman, Rep. Beck
(Rep., Pa.,) who said he was "con-

Circuit Judge George W. Sample
yesterday granted Carry Hunt Baylis,
Ypsilanti negro charged with com-

his motion on the fact that jurymen
selected to try Baylis had sat through
the examination of Britton, and on
Baylis' legal right to a 10-day period
between arraignment and trial to
prepare his defense.
Judge Sample set Saturday morn-
ing for the time at which the date
for the trial will be set.
County officers were baffled in at-
tempting to find an adequate motive
for the slaying of Deatherage. Ac-
cording to Britton, he and Baylis,
in company with several others, had
participated in a drinking party at
their rooming house on the night of
Nov. 25.
Britton testified that Baylis had
ordered him to follow Deatherage
when he left thendance hall where
the two roomed and murder him for
the $30 he was known to be carrying.
Britton said Deatherage had spoken
abusively to him on a previous oc-

The British government yesterday
again entreated the United States
for a moratorium on war debts due
Dec. 15, asserting in a note handed
to Secretary Stimson by Ambassador
Lindsay that payment would deepen
the depression.
Calls At Stimsons Home
Sir Roland Lindsay went to the
suburban home of Secretary Stimson
with the note which fortified with
elaborate facts Great Britain's con-
tention that it was unable to pay
without serious harm to its financial
The note added that if payments
are resumed and no provision made
for a general re-examination of the
whole debt subject, the British gov-
ernment would be forced to restrict
importation of American goods.
Secretary Stimson immediately
took the 6,000-word documentto the
White House, where he and Secre-
tary Mills conferred at length with
President Hoover. No announcement
was made there, however,
Opposition Firm

In Paris, meanwhile, another note

Dec. 15 to Ambassador Paul Claudel
in Washington tonight.
The document probably will be de-
livered to Secretary Stimson tomor-
row morning. It is a short summary
of the French position containing
about a half-dozen pages.
The fresh note was approved and
officially polished at a cabinet meet-
ing today over which President Al-
bert LeBrun presided.
Hospital Aides
Add $2,167 Gift
To Fund Total
The Community Fund rose slowly
to a total of $43,318 yesterday after-
noon, latest reports show.
The contributions chiefly respon-

sible for today's figures came from
employes at the University Hospital
who pledged $2,167. It is expected
that the workers there will bring that
amount up to $2,500 before the cam-
paign is concluded.
Donations of $100 or more came in
slowly, but Edith Owen, executive,
director of the Community Fund,
said that she expected $4,000 or $5,-
000 more in the big gift division
would be turned in.
Although the fund staff was hope-
ful of reaching the goal of $62,938
before Saturday, there is little indi-
cation that the total would be re-
ceived by that time. However, Miss
Owen stated that the campaign
would continue until the set amount.

The Gargoyle boys are at it
Last week, Editor Edward S. Mc-
Kay and his staff got together
and put out the December issue of
the campus funny magazine.
They met with remarkable success,
and Gargoyle went on sale yester-
day morning.
The sale, to the astonishment of
everybody concerned, went over in
a big way. The total receipts last
night were the highest Gargoyle
has recorded in one day for the
last year and a half.
Now Editor McKay is sitting
around with a worried look in his
eye, trying to find out what makes
the present issue so popular. The
staff polled a few purchasers, who
declared the magazine was dirtier
and funnier than before, but Mc-
Kay isn't convinced.
Maybe the depression is over.

Although no official comment was
made, Southern California athletic
authorities had let it be known after
the selection of their team to defend
the Far West's laurels was certain
that Michigan, undefeated champion
of the Big Ten, would be invited if
the Western Conference rule against
post-season contests could be lifted.
Decision Not A Surprise

Southern California's action did
not come as a complete surprise to
Prof. Ralph W. Aigler, chairman of
the Board in Control of Athletics,
as he had expected a definite deci-
sion from the West Coast since last
Tuesday he said last night.
The officials' request for a poll of
the faculty members of the Big Ten
was based upon the necessity of mak-
ing a definite choice Nov. 29. It came
as a surprise to him when that an-
nouncement was delayed one day,
he stated.
The formal invitation to Pittsburgh
was based upon an unfavorable poll
although Professor Aigler said that
he did not know the exact details of
the vote.

Currency Is Better Than Gold,
Canadian Visit Tells Americans

Galens Prepares For Annual
Drive To Aid Crippled Children

VANCOUVER, B. C., Dec. 1.--P)-
American gold is as good as gold in
Canada but American paper cash is
much better.
A citizen of the United States, vis-
iting a bank here, learned to his sor-
row he would have been wiser to fill
his pockets with bills before leaving
home instead of loading them down
with gold pieces. It would have saved
him a lot of money.
He walked into the bank and laid
on the counter some American bank-
notes, some silver dollars and some

more to us than Canadian gold pieces
of the same face value. We will give
$5 in Canadian bills for a $5 Cana-
dian gold piece, and we can give no
more for an American gold piece
of the same amount."
"But I thought you were paying
a premium on gold?"
"On raw gold from the mines," re-
plied the banker.
"And by the way," added the
banker, "you will have to leave the
gold here now, because it is illegal to
take gold out of Canada without a
