Returns for the day were in the
neighborhood of $400 with this fig-
ure based upon incomplete reports of
team captains. Dormitories and sor-
orities led all other groups in
amounts given with their total of
$136 being reported by Catherine

Fraternity solicitation received an
encouraging response with Alpha
Delta Phi leading other local chap-
ters with $65 contributed. The lead-
ing sorority has given $45. Based up-
on number of persons in the societies
the average member's subscription is
approximately $1.25.
The total amount advanced by one
women's dormitory passed $150 yes-

lection of the Union employees which
amounted to $100 was also given to
drive directors in the late afternoon.
It has been pointed out by drive
leaders that all of the activity of the
Good Will Fund has thus far been
carried out without the expending of
any money to outside agencies. The
used clothes contributed are being
cleaned and renovated free of charge
by local cleaners and all administra-

the offices of the Union and the

Measure For
State Repeal
Is Introduced.
Senator Derham Submits
Liquor Law Recall Bill
To State Legislature
No Provision For
Control Of Traffic
Voorheis Rules Present
Enforcement Act Still In
LANSING, Jan. 12.-(IP)-The first
step was taken in the Legislature to-
day to comply with what its sponsors
termed the prohibition repeal man-
date of the voters in the last general
A bill was introduced in the senate
by Senator Ray Derham, Republican,
of Iron Mountain, proposing the out-
right repeal of the State Prohibition
Enforcement Act of 1917.
Michigan for more than a month
has operated under a double prohibi-
tion standard. Voters repealed the
bone-dry clause of the state constitu-
tion by an overwhelming margin at
the November election. Paul W.j
Voorhies, former attorney-general,1
ruled the enforcement statute con-
tinues in operation despite the con-
stitutional repeal.
Provision Lacking
Although the amendment adopted
by the voters authorized the creation:
of a state liquor control commission,
Senator Derham's bill has no such
'provision. He said he did not con-
template the submission of a control
The senator accompanied the sub-
mission of his bill with a statement
explaining he sought to eliminate
corruption and confusion, to comply
with the administration's proposed
policy of releasing liquor prisoners,
and to prepare the state for repeal of
the Eighteenth Amendment.
"Continua cc of the enforcement
act in the face of constitutional re-
peal,1' Senator Derham charged, "has
brought widespread local corruption
in arrests and prosecutions. If the
dual system persists our elections will
also be contaminated more than ever
People's Will
Derham claimed that most voters
were under the opinion they had
abolished all prohibition enforceet
in .the statewhen they adopted the
repeal amendment. "If the will f
the people as expressed last Noven-
ber is to be carried out the state en-
forcement law must be taken off the
statute books," he said.
Derham claimed "an undesirable
condition" prevailed in his section of
the state in view of the repeal of the
Wisconsin enforcement act several
years ago. Much confusion, he said,
had arisen over prosecutions and ar-
rests near the boundary.

Decision On Orchestra
To Be Announced Soon
Tickets for the J-Hop of the class
of 1934 will be priced at $7.00, it was
decided at a meeing of the Senate
Committee on Student Affairs held
yesterday afternoon.
A budget of $4,900 was also ac-
cepted at this meeting of the com-
mittee. This is a reduction of nearly
$500 from last year's budget. Any
profits from this year's affair willa
be given .to the Student Good Will
Fund, it was announced by Charles
Jewet, general chairman.I
Both ticket price and budget for
the party were approved by the Stu-
dent Council in its meeting last night
and were submitted to the committee
for the meeting today.
Tickets for the dance will be sold
by the Union, Van Boven's, the Hut,
the Den, Siater's, Wahr's, and J-Hop
committeemen, Robert Saltzsten,
treasurer and ticket chairman, an-
nounced last night.
Several nationally prominent or-
chestras are under consideration for
the dance, Jewett said, and a decision
is expected very soon. Among those
most prominent in the negotiations
are Guy Lombardo, Isham Jones, and
George Olson.
A plan for the decoration of the
Intramural Building gymnasium was
submitted at the last meeting of the
committce and a contract awarded
for the work. As soon as a large rep-
lica of the design has been drawn
up it will be displayed in the window
of a tate Street store.'
Reveals Cooleys
Part In Law Book
Results of research disclosing the
great extent to which James Bryce
was indebted to Thomas M. Cooley
in writing "The American Common-
wealth" are discussed in the current
issue of the "Law Review" by Prof.
Everett S. Brown, of the political
science department.
Thomas McIntyre Cooley, who was
born Jan. 6, 1824, and lived until
Sept. 12, 1898, was regarded by his
associates as the foremost American
in the field of constitutional law. He
was a justice of the state supreme
'court, dean of the University of
Michigan Law School, and a profes-
sor of American history and consti-
tutional law in the literary college.
Professor Brown has recently had ac-
cess to some of Judge Cooley's papers,
and has discovered among them in-
dications that James Bryce, writing
his great classic, was even more in-
debted to Judge Cooley than is com-
monly supposed from the fact that
his name is placed first on Bryce's
list of friends who helped him in his
Professor Brown has discovered
that Judge Cooley 'read Bryce's or-
iginal manuscript, checking it and
making numerous suggestions,

Frankenstein and Mr. Hyde have
nothing on the leading charac-
ter in "The Cabinet of Dr. Calligari,"
next offering of the Art Cinema
League, if advance reports give any-
thing approaching an accurate de-
scription of the film, which will be
presented Jan. 18, 19, 20 at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
With an insane asylum for a set-
ting and its inmates for characters,
it is expected that the "Cabinet of
Dr. Calligari" will prove even more1
weird than the best "Spookers" that
come, out of Hollywood.
Strangely enough, the chief appeal
of the film is not described as lying
in its weirdness, but in its interpreta-
tion of the abnormal psychology of
its lead. Done through the medium
of a cubist impressionistic art back-
ground, which distorts the natural
outline of houses and trees and
heightens shadows in heavy black
and whites, it has been received by
reviewers everywhere as definitely ac-
complishing its purpose.
Paul Rotha, in "The Film Till
Now," says that "we are concerned
with this film as a valuable medium
of dramatic expression rather than
as superficial entertainment; as a
mental stimulant rather than as an
"The Cabinet of Dr. Calligari" was
produced in Germany in 1920 under
the direction of Dr. Robert Wieme.

Bigger, Fitzsimmons Put
Up Liberal Racing Bills
LANSING, Jan. 12.--VP) ---ThomasE
W. Bigger, race horse driver and for-1
mer state boxing commissioner, andI
Floyd Fitzsimmons, Detroit and Ben-
ton Harbor fight promoter, got away
to almost an even start today with
bills before the Legislature proposing
to liberalize the racing business.
A measure sponsored by Fitzsiin-
mons was introduced into the House
by Rep. Harvey H. Jarvis, Democrat,
of Benton Harbor. It would allow
pari-mutuel betting for harness or
running races at county fairs or reg-
ular tracks.

No bond issue of any kind will pass
in Ann Arbor in the spring elections,
Prof. F. N. Menefee, of the engineer-
ing mechanics department and mem-
ber of -the Board of Public Works,
predicted yesterday when questioned
as to the probability of a filtration
plant to purify water from the Huron
River for drinking purposes in the
near future.
In a report to the city council.Dec.
20, the water commission favored the
installation of a filtration plant at
Barton Pond, on the Huron River
just north of the city. The reason

lieved a bond proposal would fail be-
cause there were too many people in
Ann Arbor who could not, or felt
they could not, raise the money for
taxes which the filtration plant would
His , objection to the change in
water was purely' a sentimental one.
"I object to river water largely be-
cause of associated ideas that go with
river water," he said. "River water
can be purified to any degree wished
except for one's memory'of 'what it
has been," he added.
Although the expense of the new

of the moneys contributed, Miss
Lloyd pointed out that students whc
receive aid from the fund will be
allowed to decide for themselves
whether to repay the loans.
John H. Huss, director of the cam-

that, although metropolitan papers
'had grossly over-stated the gravity of
the situation, there is a real crisis
among needy students which it is the
