Disagree On
Liquor Laws.
Judge Won't Confirm His
Stand Of Nov. 12 That
'Violators' May Go Free

Arrests As Before
Supreme Court's E dic t
As To Legality Of State
Prohibition Is Awaited
The local liquor enforcement sit-
uation appeared muddled yesterday
following the repeal of the state con-
stitutional provision. ,
Although Judge George W. Sample
refused either to deny or to reaffirm
a statement which he was alleged to
have made on Nov. 12 to the effect
that he would hear no more liquor
cases after Dec. 8 and refused to
state what his attitude would be in
any case which would appear before
him Prosecutor Albert J. Rapp yes-
terday indicated that, in his opinion,
the judge's attitude had not changed.
Judge Sample told The Daily on
Wednesday night that he was uncer-
tain as to what he would do if and
when a prohibition case should be
brought into his court. He said that
he would make no decision until the
Supreme court had defined the legal
status of state prohibition or if an
individual case should appear before
him prior to such a definition. lIe
indicated, however, that, pending a
supreme court opinion, his treatment
of liquor cases would not differ from
that of the past. Asked about the
Nov. 12 statement, he refused to dis-
cuss it.
Prosecutor Rapp yesterday said
that he would continiue to issue war-
rants for sarrests in liquor cases, al-
though the cases would be more
thoroughly investigated than in the
past. "If the law is being violated,"
he said, "and a warrant should be

500 Undergraduates Still Hunt
For Jobs That Don't Materialize

Although metropolitan newspapers
have grossly exaggerated reports of
the condition of students here who
are in need, a brief survey of under-.
graduate employment revealed a new
problem yesterday.
Figures supplied by the deans' of-
fices show that approximately 400
men and 100 women want jobs for
financial assistance and can not find
them. Between 12 and 15 men apply
daily for work through the office of
the Dean of Students and calls for
their services number around one a
Between 600 and 700 applications
for work have been received during
the semester and of these 349 have
been given board jobs, which are
largely temporary. 59 permanent
room jobs have been secured and 16
students obtained steady employ-
ment for cash. In addition to these
206 odd cash jobs have been found.
Figures on employment of women

showed that 140 girls are working
for both board and room this year
and about 30 more average around
$4 per week in regular hour work.
However 100 student women are still
seeking jobs.
Some of the work secured has been
waiting table and washing dishes at
fraternity and sorority houses and in
dormitories. Odd jobs have been at
a premium-this year with applicants
sizeably increased in numbers and
but few available.
Student loan funds under the su-
pervision of University officials have
been utilized to their limits. This is
due directly to the fact that under-
graduates have consistently sought
to borrow money or find means to
work for their own benefit rather
than to receive charity.
With the employment problem as
it is, it is not surprising to find that
numbers of them are economizing
to dangerous limits. It is this group
which requires immediate assistance.

that the State will be compelled to

Comstock said.
"I am considering many ideas.
Many persons have advised an in-

would be the most equitable method
of raising funds to replace property

"I want the public to know, how-
ever, that the new tax will not be
an addition to the burden the tax-

Fitzgerald Is
Elected, Vote
Recount Shows
Recheck Of 89 Precincts'
Named By Abbott Gives
Him A Net Gain Of 28
DETROIT, Dec. 9.-(AP)-The re-
count of ballots cast for secretary of
state was at an end, so far as the
board of state canvassers was con-
cerned, with the election of the Re-
publican incumbent, Frank D. Fitz-
gerald, confirmed but the Demo-
cratic legal committtee revealed that
it was considering taking the case
to court.
The recount, in which ballot boxes
from 89 of the 299 precincts named
in the petition of B. J. Abbott, the
Democratic candidate, were recheck-
ed, established a net gain of 28 votes
for Abbott, reducing Fitzgerald's ma-
jority to 2,747 votes.
In Wayne county, ballots from 45
of the 190 precincts petitioned by
Abbott were recounted, with a net
gain for Abbott of 82 votes. Fitz-
gerald withdrew his petition for a re-
count in 70 additional precincts
when the counting of the precincts
specified by Abbott was completed.
The Democratic legal committee
indicated that its legal fight prob-
ably would take the form of quo
warranto proceedings, which have to
wait until Jan. 1 when Secretary
Fitzgerald assumes office. Such pro-

In Detroit, Too
Parallels With Michigan
Situation Are Reported
At City College, U. Of D.
Detroit, Dec. 9. - (P)- "Crackers]
and milk diet" college students,
such as those reported at the Uni-
versity of Michigan by Joseph A.
Bursley, dean of students, are a
growing problem in Detroit, admin-
istrators at local educational institu-
tions agreed today.
A leader in campus activities who
had not eaten in a week-
A co-ed for whom students collect-
ed clothing after she had worn her
one dress to classes all fall-
A football player who accepted aid
on0 when his coaoh told him point-
edly that he would' be a better player
if 34e had enough {o eat-
hese are typical instances dis-
closed by deans and registrars in a
survey of conditions at the College
of the City of Detroit and the Uni-
versity of Detroit,
The survey shows that three major
factors differentiate the situation of
students here from that of U. of M.
In Detroit, it is pointed out, the
great majority of students live at
home and have family resources to
draw upon. Secondly, a policy of
discouragement on the part of ad-
ministrators here has kept out-of-
town students planning to earn their
expenses while in college from com-
ing to Detroit. Thirdly, economic
distress has forced those hardest hit
out of the campus picture entirely.
At the Colleges of the City of De-
troit, whose students have always
come from homes of moderate means,
economic distress has most force-
fully shown itself in the elimination
, scores of students.
"Yes, there is evidence of serious
?rivation on the part of students
inder present economic conditions,"
Declared Joseph P. Selden, dean of
tudents. "It is difficult to determine.
row great the distress is.
"The students won't tell; they
don't want charity. I know that
many students go without their noon
lunches because they cannot afford
it. Our situation differs from that

As in the case of Great Britain, N. I
the United States for the second the
time answered "no" yesterday to the port
plea of France for suspension of the thre
war debt payment due next Thurs- pres
day. Sen
In Paris the question of making or
refusing to make t~he $19,261,000 pay-
ment reached the stage of parliamen-LT
tary consideration. Premier Herriot
clearly indicated he desired to find
a formula of payment which parlia-

The British House of Commons
probably will debate the issue next
Tuesday, but the storm which mayBe
be aroused will not alter the gov-
ernment's intention of making the N1

$95,550,000 payment due for Britain.
Indications in both Paris and Lon-
don were that some sort of reserva-
tion would be insisted on by both A
governments. A declaration against on I
further payments pending general dent
revision was especially suggested. high
