Testimony At
Baylis Trial
Is Confusing
Three Confessions Were
Made By Britton On The
Cap Deatherage Murder
A mass of confused testimony,
punctuated with legal objections,
confronted the jury at the opening
of the trial yesterday of Carey Bay-
lis, Ypsilanti negro charged with
the murder of "Cap" Deatherage,
World War veteran.
Testimony by the investigating of-
ficers, Ralph Southard, Ypsilanti
chief of police; William Dailey, for-
mer deputy sheriff; and George
Randel, deputy sheriff, showed that
Tom Britton, confessed slayer, had
made at least three confessions. In
the first of these he had implicated
a hazy individual named "Gray
Eyes" or "Dark Eyes," they claimed;
in the second confession he had said
that he alone had committed the
crime and in the third that he had
been "ordered to do it" by Baylis,
they said.
Confessions Differ
Harry Bledsoe, Detroit negro at-
torney. defending Baylis, drew from
officers the admission that the ar-
rest of Britton which resulted in his
confession had followed informa-
tion given the officers by Baylis.
However, according to Chief South-
ard, Baylis had, on the Tuesday fol-
lowing the murder, admitted that
Britton had been with him on' the
night of the crime, contradicting a,
previous assertion that he had spent,
the night alone.
Wounds Described
The movements of Baylis, Britton.
and Deatherage on the night of the
murder were described by other wit-
nesses. William Garner, of Cherry
Hill, testified to the identification of
the body and Dr. F. B. Williams of
Ypsilanti described the wounds and
apparent cause of death. Britton
will take the stand this morning.
The murder of Deatherage occur-
red the morning of Nov. 26. Britton
was held for questioning the same1
day and confessed the following Wed-
nesday. He was sentenced by Judge
W. Sample to a life term at the StateI
Branch Prison at Marquette. Bay-1
lis pleaded not guilty and Bledsoe1
was retained by a negro organiza-
tion to defend him.+

Expenditures And
Income Both Dro
Student Fees Only 21.27
Per Cent Of University
Receipts, Statement Of
Treasurer Discloses
Assets of the University of Mich-
igan passed fifty million dollars dur-
img the year 1931-32, the annual re-
port, made public last night, reveals.
The assets rose $1,831,295.47 during
the year, bringing the total from
$49,567,154.01 to $51,398,449.48.
The increase was confined chiefly
,o the educational plant, new build-
.ngs accounting for more than one
m nillion dollars of themrise invalua-
tion, according to the report. The
largest single item included is Hut-
chins Hall, upon which $737,776.49
"ad been expended by June 30, 1932,
ce end of the fiscal year.
Bequest Omitted
'rrie increae in asets is exclusive
of the residue of the William 'W.
Cook bequest, which would add a-
proximately eight million dollarsto
the total.
The income of the University, ex-
clusive of the hospital, dropped
$255,093.39, as compared with the
previous year while expenditures
were $199,610.69 lower than for
1930-31. The total income was $8,-
316,231.28, and the income exclusive
of hospital receipts was $6,327,668.10.
Student fees, amounting to $1,34-
921.58, supplied only 21.27 per cent4
of the latter total, while state appr-
priations formed 74.07 per cent.
Expenses rose in only three units.
The balance sheet showed that $1,-
218,341.05 of the University money
was in the hands of the state tra-
urer at the close of the year $234,000
more than on July 1, 1931. The cash
in the hands of the treasurer of the
University however, was $232,513.51,
as compared with $821,151.77 the pre-
vious year.
Gifts Much Less
Gifts to the University listed under
trust funds dropped more than half,
falling' from $770,235.18 in 1930-31'
to $384,124.15 in 1931-32. The state
appropriation dropped from $4,920,-
852.54 to $4,686,682.06.
The increase in University assets
included the erection of the new Stu-
dent Publications Building and addi-
tions to the Union, the Legal Re-
search Library, the Stadium the hos-
pital, and the University Press Build-
ing. These constructions, together
with the expenditure on Hutchins
Hall, increased the building valua-
tion $1,115,005.20.
L a n d improvements increased
$109,288.61, while equipment rose
$463,225.69. The largest item in the
equipment total was $162,378.50 for
library books and other publications.
1931 Business
School Class
F in ds Positions
Even during the present period of
a scarcity of positions it would ap-
pear that Michigan graduates, par-
ticularly those graduating from the
School of Business Administration,
are able to find work. This is de-
duced from figures given out by the
office of Dean Clare E. Grifin, of the
School of Business Administration
yesterday. Out of a 1931 graduating
class of 53 students, the school has
information concerning 47. And 40
of these 47 members have jobs.
Figured in percentage, this means
that 87 per cent of last year's grad-
uating class is known to have been
placed. That constitutes seven-eights
of the class.
"Some of the graduates," said Dean

Griffin, "are in good business posts,
and some are not in places we would
like to have them have. But, at any
rate, they are employed."
Of the graduating class an 87 per
cent employment is somewhat below
the average, but of course, it is ex-
tremely high considering the present
condition of employment onnortuni-

Allied Youth Unbit Is Organized
Here; Plan Membhership Drive

The groundwork for an active local
chapter of the Allied Youth move-

organization was laid at a meeting
in the League building last night.
With national prohibition appar-
ently entering its final stages, it is
the purpose of the Allied Youth or-
ganization -to approach the problem
of liquor consumption from an indi-
vidual standpoint. The purpose of
the group is to promote "temper-

ance differs, however, from that of
the Crusaders in that to them it
means total abstinence rather than

About 60 persons are included in
the local chapter, consisting mostly
of high school students and Univer-
sity freshmen. A constitution was
drawn up at the meeting last night.
A membership drive is planned and
all persons within the age limits are
invited to join irrespecitve of religion,
race or social position. Chapters in
Ypsilanti, Whitmore Lake and other
neighboring communities.
Discussion meetings and social
functions will comprise the program
of the organization. At the meetings,

this University, it was learned yester-
day when Dean John R. Effinger of
the literary college, chairman of the
state committee, made public the
committee's 1932 decision.
The candidates are Wilfred S. Sel-
lars, '33, of Ann Arbor, and Frank E.
Cooper, '34L, of Detroit. Sellars is
the son of Prof. Wilfred Sellars of
the Philosophy department, and has
been conspicuous in campus activi-
ties; Cooper was city editor of The
Daily in 1930-31.
"It should be noted," said Dean
Effinger in making the announce-
ment, "that these men are not final
choices for scholarships. They are
the nominations from this state, and
will be considered, along with candi-
dates from five other states for the
final awards," The two men were
selected from a group of seven.
Sellars and Cooper will go to Chi-
cago tomorrow to be interviewed by
the district committee. It is expected
that the ultimate decision will he
