Mimic Says Theatre Will Go On
Furnishing Best Entertainment

F ir s t Business Manager
Partly Responsible For
Success In Early Years
Was Professor At
Ohio When He Died
Daily First Established As
Paper By Independent
trdents Club
One of the founders and the first
business manager of The Michigan
Daily, Dr. Matthew B. Hammond, 91
died suddenly Sept. 28, at his home
in Columbus, according to word re-
cently received by The Daily.
Dr. Hammond, who was largely re-
sponsible for the financial success of
The Daily in its earlier years, was
a distinguished professor of eco-
nomics at Ohio State University at
the time of his death.
It was at the beginning of that
famous period in American social his-
tory known as the "Gay Nineties"
that Dr. Hammond, as one of the
outstanding independents on the
University campus, together with
Herbert B. Shoemaker, '91, was able
to get the University Independent
association to establish a weekly
newspaper in .competition with the
Chronicle, controled at that time by
fraternity men.
Independents Boycott
Campus politics in those days took
the form of a contest between the
fraternity men and the independents.
As a result, first fraternity men and
then independents would be selected
as; managing editor and business
manager of the Chronicle. In 1889-
90, a dispute arose between the two
factions regarding which group
should contirol the publication for the
second semester. The independents
put a finish to the matter by leaving
the paper altogether and urging a
boycott by the student body.'
Then, in the spring of 1890, the
newly-formed independent associa-
tion agreed to put out a paper of its
own. HFammond was chosen business
manager and Shoemaker was selected
managing editor. Before the close ,of
the school year, enough pledges for
subsriptions to the paper had been
obtained to insure its success and a
contract for its publication was is-
sued.
Two Papers Combined
In the meantime, the Chronicle
and the other campus publication,
the Michigan Argonaut, combined
for the purpose of putting out a
paper three times a week. Realizing
that in order to compete with the
new paper, the independent publica-
tion would have to come out daily,
Hammond managed to get the mem-
bers of the board to agree to a share
in the responsibility for putting out
a daily paper.
He then sold enough advertising
to merchants in Ann Arbor and De-
troit to put the publication upon a
sound financial basis and decided to
call the new sheet the U. of M. Daily
instead of the U. of M. Independent.
The new printing venture was a
success from the beginning and prof-
its realized from the publication were
turned over to the independent as-
sociation, although, according to most

'Dinner At Eight'
Will Play Here

"I am perfectly certain that the
theatre will continue - as the place
where one may get the best in en-
tertainment," Dorothy Sands, tal-
ented stage star who opened the Ora-
torical Association lecture series last
night, declared in an interview yes-
terday.
"But the position of the stage is
something like that of the symphony
concert -there is no room for any-
thing but the best. There is no room
for any show that is not a hit. Movies
and the radio have supplanted the
cheap and tawdry theatre, but they
will never take the place of that
which is sympathetic and artistic,"
she said.
"I am convinced of this because of
the amazing interest I find in the
theatre no matter where I go. I find
college audiences the most exciting.
They usually understand the back-
ground of the stage and are far more
responsive than any other group."

Asked what American actresses
she admired most, Miss Sands named
Ina Claire, as a comedian, Katherine
Cornell, for tragedy, and character-
ized Helen Hayes as "one of our very
best actresses."~
"No one can have any conception
of the amount of detail demanded
in the staging of such a presenta-
tion as "Our Stage and Stars,' she
said. She began worx on her present
show in January, and after months
of research, writing, building of cos-
tumes, rehearsals, and other details
that went into the making of it, went
on the road with the show late in
September.
Miss Sands, whose home was in
Cambridge, Mass., and who attended
Radcliffe College, had never been in
Ann Arbor before, but called the
town and campus "simply beautiful"
and "a grand place" after a long walk
yesterday morning.

To Discontinue'
Convicts' Band
Concerts So on
Prisoner Escapes After A
Performance; Director
Ousted For Ten Days
Inmates of Jackson State Prison
will no longer be allowed to wander
about the State giving musical per-
formances, engaging in parades, par-
ticipating in banquets, and quite
generally having a good time, War-
den Peter Gray has announced. The
musical organizations of the insti-
tution will fill the contracts they
have already made and that will be
all.
This action resulted after Charles
Case, one of the members of the
prison band, escaped from the or-
ganization when it appeared in De-
troit last week. E. D. Cooley, the
band instructor, has been suspended
for 10 days.
Commenting upon his decision, the
warden said, "We are going to give
the people of Michigan and of Jack-
son a rest and we are going to give
ourselves a rest."
The prison band recently appeared
in Ann Arbor, having been brought
here as a publicity stunt for a local
newspaper. It paraded about the
town, flags flying, crowds watching,
and a general holiday air prevailing.
A special reception committee of city
officials met the organization and an
American Legion Drum and Bugle
Corps escorted it through the city.
All this fanfare caused consider-
able criticism at the time, and The
Daily, commenting upon' the specta-
cle editorially, declared, "The effect
of this parade can only be the op-
posite of that which would promote
abhorrence of all law violations and
violators. The effect will be to arouse
sentiment other than that depreca-
tion which makes for obedience."

Mana For Codes
Is Here; Hours Of
Studying Regulated
America's mania for signing codes
about everything under the sun has
not escaped the Michigan campus if
one is to judge by the "studyingl
code" which four students recently
signed, pledging themselves to spend
at least 18 hours each week "on the
books."
"We, the undersigned, do hereby
agree to study at least three (3)
hours a day, six (6) days a week,"
the petition reads. Penalties are pro-
vided by fines of a package of ciga-
rettes to be given to each student
over the prescribed 18 hours by each
man who falls under, with additional
penalties being levied as the stu-
dent's study hours fall farther below
the mark.
Dorothy Sands
Enthusiastically
Received Here
A large and enthusiastic audience
last night greeted Dorothy Sands,
"supreme contemporary mistress of
imitation," who opened the 1933-34
lecture series of the Oratorical As-
sociation in Hill Auditorium with her
"one-woman show" of American
stage history.
Of the seven periods in the history
of the American theatre chosen by
Miss Sands for representation in her
offering, "Our Stage and Stars,"
none was so loudly applauded as the
study in movie vampires which closed
the program..
Appearing as Greta Garbo, Theda
Bara, star of the silver screen in
1913, and lastly Mae West, Miss
Sands brought the review to a rous-
ing climax with her vivid and accu-
rate impersonations. She also gave
the audience an insight into her
rapid-change technique as she
changed her make-up on the stage
for the last series of characteriza-
tions.
Tickets for the appearance of Edna
St. Vincent Millay, distinguished
American woman poet, on Nov. 15,
and for the remainder of the Ora-
torical Association series will go on
sale at Wahr's Bookstore at noon to-
day, Charles Rogers, '34, president of
the association, announced last night.

Johnson's Support
Manufacturers Take Step
In Direction Of Closer-
Knit Industry
WASHINGTON, Nov. 1. -(P) -
Plans to unify American industry
from a centralized business organi-
zation with a minimum of Federal
supervision received the support of
Gen. Hugh S. Johnson and the NRA
today.
They were proposed by Gerard
Swope, chairman of the board of
General Electric, at an assembly of
commercial leaders here.
The project was advanced by the
General Electric head with the sug-
gestion that upon the Industrial Re-
covery Act might be built a better
business structure, "more in keep-
ing with our democratic philosophy
and traditions than we have had in
the past," and with the warning that
unless industry organizes to govern
itself "either the State or Federal
Government will-with the conse-
quent paralyzing effects on initiative
and progress.
Action on the plan was postponed
for committee study, on the recom-
mendation of Henry I. Harriman,
president of the Chamber of Com-
merce of the United States. This unit
in the Swope program would be
merged into a greater National
Chamber of Commerce and Indus-
try, into which would fit all the
trade associations of codified indus-
tries.
Harriman said later that there was
a great deal of dissatisfaction among
American business men over the Na-
tional Recovery Administration's pro-
gram and added that "very little of
the present NRA" would be retained:
under the proposal of Swope.
Meanwhile, a definite step in the
direction of a closer-knit industry
was announced by the National As-
sociation of Manufacturers. At a
meeting yesterday in New York, at
which were representatives of 26 ma-
jor manufacturing groups, including
the Iron and Steel Institute, the cen-
tral organization was strengthened.
Creation of an advisory committee
of the National Industrial Council of
the National Association of Manufac-
turers was announced to "consider
and take appropriate action" upon
national matters.'

By Police For Disorderly
Conduct
Two students were suspended from
the University yesterday by the fac-
ulty disciplinaryrcommittee as a re-
sult of their arrests last week by
local police for drunken and disor-
derly conduct.
The students, Wilfred H. Tisch,
'34, and John S. Doherty, '37, were
suspended for an indefinite period
and letters have been sent to their
parents informing them of the rea-
sons for the action.
A meeting upon the two cases was
held earlier in the week by the dis-
ciplinary committee of the Under-
graduate Council and the action-
taken by the faculty committee yes-
terday was in full accordance with
the penalties recommended by the
student group.

Striking Farmers Will
Continue, Leader Says
DES MOINES, Iowa, Nov. 1-G')-
Continuance of the farm strike will
depend upon President Roosevelt's
disposition of agricultural demands
to be presented at Washington to-
morrow by four governors, Milo
Reno, strike leader, said tonight.
"The strike is not called off in any
sense of the word," Reno asserted.
"And it never will be until our de-
mands are met. It's up to Presi-
dent Roosevelt now."
Reno termed the present status of
the 11-day strike that of "inactive
suspension," permitting berry farm-
ers to market their perishables. The
order to withhold grains and live-
stock still is in force, Reno said.

Fall River (Mass.), Boston, and
Providence firemen.
The dead were:
"Chief" Gaylor Henshaw, a Chero-
kee Indian, of Vinita, Okla.

Fritz Kreisler To Appear In
Choral Union Concert Nov. 9

opinions differ as to whether a
reporter or a lecturer occupies a.
higher position in the social scale.
Floyd Dell, who will deliver two of
the feature lectures Saturday before
audiences of the Parent Education
Institute, can probably attribute his
present eminence as a lecturer to his
early experience in newspaper work.
Writers, according to him, are the
interpreters of life, evaluating for us
our human experience. As a novelist,
"-16. -4+.r~n++ 4t 4 1 a f.. la

he has said, "by my gradual expul-
sion at a very early age from most of
the other available ways of making a
living."
After several years of reporting on
small town papers he became literary
editor of the Chicago Evening Post
in 1911, where he built up a book
section which became known as one
of the liveliest and most stimulating
of any western newspaper.
Fame came to him when he pub-
lished his first novel, "Moon-Calf,"
