In a summer which was packed
with a profusion of events appealing
to local, state, national, and inter-
national audiences, the following
stood out as of notable interest to
University students, faculty mem-
bers, and -Ann Arbor residents:
1. The appointment, Aug. 30, of
Dean Edward H. Kraus of the Sum-
mer Session and of the pharmacy
college to. become dean of the liter-
ary college. Director Kraus was cho-
sen at a meeting of the Regents held
at President Alexander G. Ruthven's
Rolling Ranch near Frankfort, Mich-
igan,'and succeeds the late John R.
Effinger, who died June 7 of a heart
attack. An executive committee of
six members yet to be chosen will
assist Dean Kraus in the guidance
of the University's largest unit, and
will relieve him of much encumber-
ing detail which f or me r ly was.
shouldered by the dean. The new
executive committee members will
be appointed by the Regents through
the president upon recommendation
of members of the faculty, and will
serve three year terms. Appoint-
ments will be on a stagger basis. Re-
tiring members of the committee
may not be re-appointed until the
lapse of one year uniess their origi-
nal appointment had been for the
period of one year or less.
Dean Kraus is 57 years old. He
has been dean of the Summer Ses-
sion of the University since 1915 and

dean of the pharmacy college since
2. The unexpected death June 7
of Dean John R. Effinger of the lit-
erary college at his home at 1036
Martin Place. A heart attack was
the cause.
Dean Effinger was born in Iowa,
July 3, 1869, and received his higher
education and his first degree at the
University. Before hisappointment
as dean of the literary college he
had been acting dean of this unit
and for four years had been dean of
the Summer Session.
3. The Regents' meeting of July
17. At this historic meetingd95 mem-
bers of the teaching and clerical
staff of the University were dropped,
122 others were put on a part-time
basis, and a budget of $5,088,831, ex-
clusive of University Hospital, was
adopted for the ensuing year. Tui-
tion, formerly paid in a lump sum at
September enrollment, was split up
on a semester basis, while part-time
students' fees were jumped from $25
a year to $25 a semester.
The cuts which the Regents made,
perforce, in the salaries of Univer-
sity faculty men and other employees
were surprisingly light. The follow-
ing sliding scale was adopted: sal-
aries of less than $1,500, exempt
from cut; any increment between
$1,500 and $2,000, 8 per cent cut;
any increment from $2,000 to $4,000,
12 per cent cut; any increment above

In addition the Michigan Union
Band will give a program. In ac-
cordance with the general policy of
the Union for the present year, the
price of the banquet has been re-
duced from $1 to 75 cents that more
members of the class may be able
to attend.
Gargoyle Men
Pla Trick On
Poor Detroiter
Ex-Steeplejack Seized On
Street Is Photographed,
Nose, Clothes, And All
When Joseph C. Villare, self-styled
public dependant No. 1 of Detroit,
left his home 44 years ago to follow
his career as steeplejack, he little ex-
pected to end up by being photo-
graphed for the Gargoyle, but even
better men have gone wrong.
Those funny fellows, otherwise
known as members of the Gargoyle
staff, were loose in Detroit Friday
night, and at a loss for a subject
for one last photograph, they seized
upon Villare in the vicinity of Con-
gress and Woodward streets and,
plying him with coffee and rolls,
gently urged him to the photo-
grapher's studios.

Government Book
By Bromage Out
A systematic history of county
government together with a search-
ing analysis of present conditions
and possible reforms in this field
form the major theme of "Ameri-
can County Government," a recent
book by Prof. Arthur W. Bromage
of the political science department.
The work made its appearance late
in August.
Professor Bromage's book is re-
puted to be the only one of its kind.
The completeness of the historical
treatment, the plans for county re-
organization, and the examination of
certain modern trends in renovating
patchwork county government4 are
features of "American County Gov-
ernment" not found in similar texts.

The Interfraternity Dance, first of
a series of dances to be sponsored by
the Interfraternity Council, will be

man of the committee which is to
manage the affair.
"This dance, the first of its kind
to be held at Michigan, is being plan-
ned with an eye toward creating bet-
ter feeling among fraternity men at
Michigan," Doty said, "and we in-
tend to make this an informal func-

Two former University students
were featured players last night,
when Robert Henderson's Detroit
Dramatic Festival presented "20th

While it did not mark the initial
stage appearance for Alan Handley,
'32, it was a definite step in his
dramatic career. During his four
years here he was prominent in cam-
pus dramatics. He was also dramatic
critic of the Gargoyle.
Another contribution from the
ranks of Gargoyle humorists is Paul
Showers, '31, former editor, and one-
time campus humorist. He was also
a member of Sigma Delta Chi, Com-
edy Club, and Michigamua.
Also appearing in "20th Century
Limited" are members of the Ann
Arbor Dramatic Festival Company-
Violet Heming, Helen Ray, and Fran-
cis Compton.
The play is from the pen of Ben
Hecht and Charles MacArthur, both
prominent playwrights, and is a "hil-

To Be Asked
Undergraduate Council To
Pass Out Pledge Cards
Of Co-Operation
Consumer Stickers
Go To Signatories
Idea Has Been Carried Out
Successfully By Groups
At Other Universities
University students will have an
opportunity to demonstrate their
willingness to support the NRA today
when a drive, sponsored by the Un-
dergraduate Council, takes place on
As a result of a motion passed at
last Thursday's meeting of the Coun-
cil at the request of Dean James B.
Edmonson, general of the Ann Ar-
bor NRAI forces, booths will be set
up at various locations on campus
where students may sign pledge
cards and receive NRA consumer
Following a general plan which has
been successfully carried out at va-
rious other 1 a r g e universities
throughout the country, this drive is
an attempt on the part of local or-
ganizations to provide the student
with an opportunity to "do his part"
in the nation-wide attempt to bring
back prosperity through the regula-
tion of working hours and wages.
The drive, opening at 9 a. m. will
continue for several days. Indepen-
dent students will have an oppor-
tunity to sign pledge cards at booths
located at the center of the campus,
in front of Angell Hall, in the En-
gineering Arch and in the main lobby
of the Union. The booths are being
managed by officials of the Union.
In addition, the Interfraternity

From Recovery Chief
A wire received yesterday by
Gilbert E. Bursley, President of
the Undergraduate Council, from

recovery administrator, indicates

local drive by national officers.

you the - President's appreciation
of the Council's co-operation in
the work of the NRA. I wish to

success of your enterprise."-
. Hugh S. Johnson, National Re-
covery Administrator.
Council will send pledge cardss.to all
campus fraternities and the League
Board of Directors will contact the
sororities. Pledge cards sent to these
organizations, when mailed in to
local NRA headquarters, will entitle
the signer to an NRA consumer
sticker, to be displayed as evidence
of co-operation.
The pledge card, on which the
signer is asked to include his Ann
Arbor address, reads: "I will co-op-
erate in re-employment by support-
ing and patronizing employers and
workers who are members of NRA."
Dean Edmonson, who is largely re-
sponsible for the outstanding success
of the drives in Ann Arbor to secure
the co-operation of merchants, yes-

terday expressed his approval of the
campus drive and offered every aid

Decision On Campus Area Beer
Question Up To Supreme Court

The beer question -whether it is
or is not immoral to sell beer east
of Division Street - is now ferment-
ing before the members of the State
Supreme Court. That body is ex-
pected to meet Oct. 3, and State
Street merchants hope it will express
an opinion on the subject at that
No beer licenses were granted to
merchants east of Division Street
last Spring because the Common
Council, which was in charge of giv-
ing permits for the licenses, claimed
that a city charter provision pro-

After this decision, Ralph Monk,
proprietor of the New Granada Res-
taurant, 313 S. State St., filed in
Circuit Court a writ of mandamus
requesting that the council be com-
pelled to give him a license. The
case was argued during the summer.
Monk's lawyer was J. Edgar Dwyer,
and City Attorney William Laird
represented the council. Judge Sam-
ple came to a lengthy decision of
eight pages, saying "No."
Dwyer then took the case the to
the Supreme Court, where it is now.
