trymen by German citizens-in a
number of cases storm troopers.
Simultaneous with receipt by the
American embassy of instructions
from Secretary of State Cordell Hull
to inquire as to what steps were be-

Germans, it was learned the Dutch
legation and the British and Span-
ish embassies had received similar

While an appointment for Wil-

the German government has not;
been definitely scheduled, it was inti-
mated the meeting likely would be
Friday. The German press has not1
mentioned Mr. Hull's message. ,
Earlier representations have been;
made by Switzerland, Poland, Rus-a

and the four latest complaints ap-
peared to hinge on a contention that
outside of an apology by the foreign1

The records of the affidavits filed
by the 27 Americans, all covering
cases since April 3, shows that only
two persons have been taken into
custody, one of them being fined 50
marks (about $17.50). No informa-
tion could be obtained as to when
the other German, a storm trooper
accused of assaulting Dr. Daniel
Mulvihill, of Danbury, Conn., con-
nected with the Long Island Medical
College, would be tried.
The 50-mark fine was assessed
against Oskar Joost, who assaulted
Julian Fuhs, a New York musician,
March 12. At his trial the judge
brought out that, the defendant wasR
a German Aryan Nazi and that Fuhs
was an American Jew.
Dr. Mulvihill was assaulted last
August 17, like most of the others be-
cause he did not salute a parade int
Nazi fashion - an upraised arm.

Freshman Luncheon Club To Be
Continued Again This Semester

Dean Bursley's Freshman Lunch-
eon Club.is to be continued through-
out the'current year.
Started three years ago when de-
ferred rushing kept first-year out of
fraternities for the fall semester, this
unique organization which the Dean
of Men established has proved too
invaluable to be discontinued.
Now, at.,the request of those who
have benefitted from the gatherings
in the past, representative students
in the class of '37 are to be given a
similar opportunity to become ac-
quainted with each other and with
leading members of the senior class.'
The club, to be composed of two
groups, will contain approximately
200 men. Organized under the direc-
tion of senior students, the club will
probably meet twice a week at the
Union for luncheon, informalatalks,
and various forms of entertainment.
This year the two groups are to be
organized under the direction of Gil-
bert E. Bursley, '34, president of

the Undergraduate Council, a n d
James Cristy, '34,'president of Mich-
igamua. Bursley will select ten other
seniors f r o m the Undergraduate
Council and Druids and Cristy will
pick ten members of Michigamua to
aid in getting together the first-year
Each of the seniors thus selected
will choose four freshmen to be in-
vited to join the club and these fresh-
men, in turn, will be allowed to select
another member of the class of '37,
for participation in the activities on
the group. In this manner approxi-
mately 200 first-year men will be
given an opportunity to join.
In past seasons, in order to keep
the membership of the club from be-
ing restricted to fraternity men, at
least two of the four men selected
by each senior were non-fraternity
men. Complete plans have not been
formulated for this year but in all
probability some measure similar to
this will be enacted.

Selling Of Beer To
Be Sanctioned On
Wisconsin Campus
MADISON, Wis., Oct. 12.-(Spe-
cial) -Regents of the University of
Wisconsin voted to permit the sale
of beer in the Wisconsin Union, stu-
dents club. The vote places Wiscon-
sin along with Columbia, Dartmouth,
Princeton, Brown, and other leading
colleges which allow the sale of beer
on University property.
Before prohibition, beer was not
sold on the campus at Wisconsin, and
with the passage of the national beer
act, the past restriction against the
beverage came into effect. There was
considerable protest against the law,
and at first dry regents were against
any change.
One of the regents, who is known
personally as a dry, remarked that
the beer was being sold in the Union
because "it isn't intoxicating."
Tr outs For'
Comedy Club
Will Be Today
16 Out Of 45 Students
Pass First Test, G a i n
Second Hearing
More than 45 students yesterday
applied for membership in Comedy
Club, long-time campus dramatic or-
ganization, when preliminary tryouts
were held Wednesday and Thursday
afternoons in the Laboratory Theatre.
From the total number who tried
out, 16 have been selected by the club
to appear for a final hearing. The
meeting will be held at 4 p.m. today
in Sarah Caswell Angell'Hall, located
above Barbour Gym.
"While the number of students who
tried out for Comedy Club this year
was considerably lower than last
year's applications," C1a r e n c e W.
Moore, '34, president of the club, said
after tryouts yesterday, "the talent
presented was exceptionally high."
No applicant presenting poetry,
Shakespeare will be considered, Moore
explained, and the three-minute scene
must be presented without the help
of a script or properties. Students
accepted will be announced some time
tomorrow after a final meeting.
Coupons for senior pictures for the
1934 Michiganensian will sell at $3
according to Arend Vyn, '34, business
manager. This is a correction of the
article which appeared in Wednes-
day's Daily stating that the pricea
would be $1.

Wie mer Held At
Jail Until Trial
Of Accomplice
Will Be Material Witness
Against Dunn; Trial At
End Of Term Docket
Sentenced Wednesday to life im-
prisonment at solitary confinement
and h a r d labor, George Wiemer,
slayer of John Reinhart, aged re-
cluse, will be held in the County Jail
here until the trial of Brent H. Dunn,
his accomplice, where he will be used
as a material witness.
Dunn, who entered a plea of not
guilty, is being held without bond un-
til his trial, which is listed on the.
bottom of the present term docket.
Both men admitted that they in-
tended to rob Reinhart, but each ac-
cuses the other of applying the hand-
kerchief which caused the aged man
to die of suffocation.
Wiemer, completely b r o k e n in
spirit, freely confessed his guilt and
pled guilty in Circuit Court Wed-
nesday, but Dunn, self composed and
smiling, entered a plea of not guilty.
Dunn will be defended by his attor-
ney, George Meader.'
Funeral services for the murdered
man were held at 3 p. m. yesterday
at the Muehlig funeral chapel. Bu-
rial took place in Forest Hills ceme-
tery. Reinhart had been a residentof
this city for almost 70 years.

under scrutiny in Chicago this week-
end when Joseph A. Bursley, dean of
students, will explain the workings of
the system to members of the Na-
tional Interfraternity Conference,
which will hold its sessions there to-
day and tomorrow.

the Interfraternity Council is attend-
ing the Undergraduate Council meet-
ing of the same conference and is ex-
pecting to explain how the system
works to the leading fraternity men
who will gather from all parts of the
United States and Canada for the
Before he left yesterday, Mr. Burs-
ley stated that he believed that the
plan now in operation here is an ex-
cellent one and one which will help
fraternities greatly, only hindered by
the lack of adequate machinery for
enforcing and managing the compli-
cated system of accounts.

ALLEGAN, Oct. 12.-(P)-With the
defense and the prosecution refusing
to sign stipulations submitted by the
other, it ooked tonight as if Fred C.
Ring, head of a nudist colony that
was raided last Labor Day, would go
on trial Oct. 23 on a charge of inde-
cent exposure.
Ring and his wife, who also faces
a charge of indecent exposure, de-
clined to sign an agreement tender-
ed by Prosecutor Welborne S. Luna
to discontinue the nudist camp in
Allegan county. Luna had offered to
ask for a dismissal of the charges if

of the Undergraduate Council and
will be systematically conducted un-
der regulatons adopted by that body
at a meeting last night, according to
Gilbert E. Bursley, '34, president of
the Council.
This year, to simplify the arrange-
ments necessary for holding the elec-
tions,-all schools and colleges will
hold elections for each class on 'the
same date. Balloting for all senior
class officers will be held next Wed-
nesday afternoon. Voting in t1e
junior classes will take place the fol-

all elections in the College of Engi-
neering and in all other elections the
Councilman in charge will be assisted
by Union committeemen.
A committee, consisting of Burgess,
chairman; Grace Mayer, '34; and
Wilbur Bohnsack, '34, was appointed
at an earlier meeting of the Under-
graduate Council to investigate class
elections and the appointment of
class committees. This committee
made an informal report last night
and will give a formal statement with
recommendations at the next meeting
of the Council. The group is now
formulating plans for the elinmnation
of many superfluous class committees
and will submit these suggestions
next week also.
The Council also made plans last
night for the first pep meeting of the
year which is to be held next Friday'
night in Hill Auditorium. Definite ar-
rangements are to be made ana an-

Presbyterian Pastor May Take

When bishops of the Anglican and

famed Lambeth Conference in Lon-

foremost ecclesiastical figures of two

comprises representatives of every
Christian sect engaged in Chinese

His duties in China were not al-
ways those of an ecclesiastical na-

nese war-lords. Settling differences
between Chinese war-lords, a polite
name for bandits, is not the easiest
task that might be imagined, but

The Rev. Merle H. Anderson, pas-
tor of the First Presbyterian Church
of Ann Arbor, last night indicated
that it was quite possible that he
would accept the call of the North
Presbyterian Church in Manhattan
to become its pastor. "It is quite an,
opportunity," he said, "and I think
it right that I should accept." How-
ever, Dr. Anderson reserved his defi-
