Jones To Head
Of Stewards
Frederick F. Jones, '35, steward of
the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity, was
named president of the newly formed
Stewards Association at a meeting of
a representative group of stewards
held last night at the Union.
The purpose of the association as
stated by the new president, is to
organize the house managers in aa
firm union to cut the costs of living
for the members of houses. The first
move that has been instituted is a
survey of the prices which are offered
by various wholesale houses in the
. These prices will be kept on file at
the offices of the Interfraternity'
Council, under whose wing the asso-
ciation has been organized, so that
stewards may be able to buy intelli-
gently, Jones said.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 25.--(P)-
America was well embarked tonight
on the Roosevelt policy of higher
prices through a managed currency,
with the commodity markets re-
sponding strongly to the economic
stimulus of his program.
High officials of the government
met and fixed the price of Recon-
struction Finance Corp. purchases of
newly-mined gold at $31.36 an ounce,
27 to 36 cents higher than the price
paid on the London Exchange. Then
they sat back to watch the results.
The results were pleasing.
Commodities led a general advance.
Wheat was 3 to 3 1-2 cents higher.
Corn gained 2 to 3 cents. All stock
groups closed firmly 1 to 5 points
The theory behind Mr. Roosevelt's
idea was that by raising the price of
domestic gold above world prices he
could influence domestic quotations
upward. The basis of the commodity
prices, economists pointed out, was
gold, despite America's departure
from the gold standard.+
For the present the economic fac-
tors involved in the plan will be re-
viewed daily, and each morning the
day's gold price will be announced'.
This did not mean, it was added,
that the quotation necessarily would
change from day to day, as it might
be deemed advisable in certain cir-
cumstances to let one price stand.
Today's figure was set by Chair-
man Jesse H. Jones, of the RFC,
Henry Morgentheau, Jr., represent-
ing the President and Dean Acheson,
acting secretary of the treasury.
The three met in Acheson's office
at 9:40, received the latest foreign
exchange quotations and the London
gold rate. After a quarter hour's de-
liberation reporters were called in
and Jones read the following state-.
ment :
"The Reconstruction Finance Cor-
poration will accept subscriptions to-
day for its 90-day debentures, pay-'
able in newly-mined gold recovered
from natural deposits in the United
States and any territory subject to
its jurisdiction at the rate of $31.36
per ounce of fine gold."+

Bishop Cannon Still Champions
Near-Dead Prohibition Cause

Local Exhibition Of Painting,
Sculpture Work Opens Today

In Bishop James Cannon, Jr., one
finds the most outstanding worker'
in the cause of Prohibition in this
country. Resting in his unostenta-
tious hotel room yesterday afternoon
before his address at the M. E.
Church, he was the old warrior, never
admitting defeat.
"Warfare with the liquor traffic
by church and society is inevitable.
But that society will once again find
it impossible to have the liquor traffic
as part of its system. How long it
will take depends on the education
of the public. But," he declared, "it
will certainly be within the lifetime

"The last election," he said, "was
won not on Prohibition grounds but
on economic. Prohibitionists had no-
body to vote for as both major can-
didates were running on a wet plat-
"However," he said, "the Prohibi-
tion Party stood for only one definite
principle. It hasn't a wide enough
platform, and as such, will never win
enough supporters to its ranks."
"A third party may be the solu-
tion of the present situation, but that
third party must stand on a general
moral platform."

The eleventh annual exhibition of
painting and sculpture by local art-
ists will open its doors at 1:30 p. m.
today to members and friends of
the Ann Arbor Art Association with
a reception in the West Gallery of
Alumni Memorial Hall.
The exhibition this year, accord-
ing to Mrs. Bradley M. Davis, presi-
dent of the association, differs not-
ably from its predecessors in that the
jury chose to adopt a more rigorous
standard than formerly in passing
upon work submitted. The result is
a show small in size but meritorious

accepted. The value of adequate
craftsmanship was, however, not
Comprising the jury of selection
for sculpture were Carleton Angell,
artist at the University Museums,
and Fredrika Goodwin Mallette,
sculptor, of Ypsilanti. The sculpture
is shown to greater advantage this
year, incorporated as it is in the
exhibition in the West Gallery with
better arrangements for spacing.
Among the exhibitors are Carleton
