John Jay Dining Hall Is
Found 'Tyrannical' In
Attitude To Employees
New Probe To Start
To See That New Regime
Is Administered Under
Precepts Now In Force
NEW YORK, Oct. 5-Three of five
maladministration charges directed
against John Jay dining hall by the
Columbia Spectator, Columbia Uni-
versity student n e w s p a p e r, last
spring, have been upheld by an in-
vestigation committee composed of
faculty and student members, ac-
cording to the Spectator.
Attacked Dining Hall
Then edited by Reed Harris, stor-
my petrel of university newspaper-
dom, the paper alleged that the din-
ing hall managerial staff "tyran-
nized student employees," that "lack
of co-ordination" regarding to du-
ties and functions was present, that
foreign substances were found in the
food served to the students, that the
halls were run for personal profit,
and that the quality of the food was
unsatisfactory and the prices too
The first three of these charges
were upheld; the last two denied.
Inspection of the investigating
committee of the bank accounts and
income tax returns of two prominent
employees of the dining hall failed
to reveal any appreciable income
"over and above that received from
the university as salary."
Eduard Panchard, food expert, was
summoned by the committee for a
test of the food. Panchard pro-
nounced it satisfactory, and called
the menu "well-balanced." T h a t
foreign substances were present in
the food is admitted, however.
Recommendations for a new re-
gime were advanced by the commit-
tee, which advocated that "more at-
tention be given to the preparation
of foods and ways of serving them,"
and that food-checking and account-
ing systems be inaugurated. Fur-
ther clauses in the report urged med-
ical inspection of employees and that
"to avoid any appearance of favor-
itism, the proportion of students par-
ticipating in inter-collegiate sports
employed in the dining rooms be lim-
ited to the approximate proportion
of such students in the student
To Consider Report Further
The university commons commit-
tee will organize a group in the near
future which will further consider
the report and will take added ac-
tion, it was announced.
The attacks begun upon John Jay
dining hall attracted nation-wide in-
terest to Harris as the inaugurator
of the crusade. Action finally was
deemed necessary and Harris was
expelled only to be later reinstated.
He then resigned immediately, and
has published a book .entitled "King
Football, the Vulgarization of the
Y. M. C. A. Celebration
In Honor Of Founding
Observance of the eighty-eighth
anniversary of the founding of the
Young Men's Christian Association is
planned by the local chapter of that
organization for Tuesday night.
Ferdinand N. Menefee, professor of
engineering mechanics, will be in
general charge of plans for an an-
niversary dinner, while Prof. I. L.

"The Adding Machine," Elmer
Rice's noted expressionistic play of
a decade ago, will be the first offer-
ing on the 1932-1933 Michigan dra-
matic season, which begins on Oct.
28, it was announced yesterday by
Valentine B. Windt who will start
his fifth season as director of Play
Production which will stage the play.
Casting and rehearsals have al-
ready begun. The play will be pre-
sented in the Laboratory Theatre
which begins its third year as the
showhouse for the dramatic classes.
"The Adding Machine," one of the
first successful American expression-
istic plays, was first played in New
York in 1923 and enjoyed a highly-s
successful run. Since it has left the
boards it has proved popular with
little theatres, its uniqueness of plot
and setting being looked upon as a
precedent in the American theatre.
The story is a swift and poetic
treatment of the experiences of Mr.
Zero, an office drudge. His life is all
figures interrupted only by the nag-
ging of his wife. He has worked 25
years as a clerk in the office of the
boss who fires him to make way for
the newly-invented adding machine.
In a fit of temporary insanity he
kills the boss and after having given
himself to the police when they call
at his. house and proclaiming his
guilt in court, he is sentenced.
He is transported to the Elysian'
fields where life and characters there
are portrayed through his eyes.
After he has been put to work on
an adding machine and had his soul
cleansed he is ordered task to earth
despite his protests. T is in the
Elysian fields that he learns "the
mark of the slave is upon him" and
that he will commence life over
again and again with that mark.
Tickets for the performance of the
plays will be placed on sale at the
Laboratory theatre .box-office soon.

Thieves Steal $50
From Sigma Alpha
A possible resumption of last
year's epidemic of fraternity house1
robberies was indicated early yes-
terday when the Sigma Alpha Epsi-
lon house, 1408 Washtenaw avenue,
was entered and approximately $50
in cash stolen. It was the second
fraternity robbery of the semester.
According to members of the fra-
ternity, the outer door was left un-
locked and, as sleeping quarters are
in a dormitory on the fourth floor,
the intruders had free access to the
study rooms on the second and third
floors. Nothing else of value was
The first robbery occurred early
last week at the Alpha Tau Omega
house on Cambridge Road, where
$100 was obtained. The situation,
tending to provide ample opportu-
nities for prowlers, was the same as
at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house,
according to members.
Ann Arbor police advised that all
houses keep their outer doors locked.

Stanford University graduates and
alumni who are now attending the
University of Michigan were layingj
plans yesterday to organize for the

Named To Beta
Honor Fraternity Elects
Edith V. Egeland
For the first time in the history
of Beta Gamma Sigma, national
scholastic honorary fraternity of the
School of Business Administration, a
woman has been elected to mem-
bership, it was learned yesterday
from Prof. Ernest M. Fisher. Edith
V. Egeland, '32BAd, has the distinc-
tion of being the only woman mem-
ber of the society.
Miss Egeland, who is employed at
present in the Bureau of Statistics in
the University, was graduated from
the School of. Business Administra-
tion last year at the head of her
class, automatically making her
eligible for membership to Beta
Gamma Sigma, which usually elects
the upper 10 per cent of the graduat-
ing class to membership.
According to Professor Fisher the
unprecedented election of Miss Ege-
land will probably serve as the stim-.
ulus for the future election of other
women who meet the scholastic re- I
quirement of Beta Gamma Sigma.

Many a "sale" made by advertising has gone
to a 'competitor because the purchaser did not
know where to buy the advertised brand. Tele-
phone men evolved a plan to make it easy to find.
They created a "Where to Buy It" service in
the classified telephone directory. There-beneath
the advertised trade marks -Buick, Goodrich,
RCA Victor, General Electric and many others
now list authorized local dealers. Thus telephone
men complete the chain between advertiser and
consumer -increase the effectiveness of advertis-
ing - help manufacturers and dealers to increase
sales - help consumers to get what they want!
Because they apply vision to subscribers' prob-
lems, Bell System men continually increase the
value of telephone service.
