Authorities To
Consider Sale
Of Intoxicants
Initial Union Forum For
Year Presents Delano,
Picard, And Angell
Expect Big Crowd
At Liquor Debate
Will Explain Problem Now
Confronting Legislature
On State Ratification
Features of the present general
disagreement as to how the sale of
liquor in the State of Michigan
should be controlled will be publicly
discussed for the first time locally at
the openin Union Forum of the year,
to be held at 7:45 p. m. today in the
Union ballroom.
Frank Picard, chairman of the
State Liquor Control Commission,
Carl Delano, chairman of the legis-
lative sub-committee which drafted
the first bill, and Prof. Robert C. An-
gell of the sociology department,
chairman of the University advisory
committee that went, to Lansing a
short time ago, will be among promi-
nent authorities to appear during the
One of the largest crowds ever to
attend a similar event here is expect-
ed according to Dexter Goodier, '35, of
of the Union Executive Council, who
is in general charge of the forum.
Professor Angell will act as chair-
man of the meeting and later will
lead the open discussion that will fol-
low the addresses.
Speakers will endeavor to explain
the problem now confronting the
State Legislature regarding the ratifi-
cation of a bill for the State. As the
situation now stands, there are two
bills to be presented for considera-
tion. One, the work of the sub-com-
mittee, closely follows the system of
liquor control in force in Quebec,
which prohibits the sale of all spirits
other than by the bottle from gov-
ernment stores. Both Mr. Picard and
Mr. Delano were members of the
committee that drafted this bill.
The second to be presented will be
the one that was later drawn up by
the legislative council to which the
sub-committee was attached. This
provides more liberal dispensing in
the larger centers of the State.
Following the speeches those pres-
ent will be given an opportunity to
ask questions concerning the details
of the plans as presented.
New Play Will
Be Presented
By Henderson
Edgar Wallace's Mystery
Drama To Be Featured
Here All Next Week
Because of interest in "Dinner at
Eight," Robert Henderson announced
last night that the Dramatic Fes-
tival would present a second produc-
tion beginning next Sunday and con-
tinuing through Nov. 25 at the Ma-
jestic Theatre.
The second play, following the cur-
rent run at the Majestic Theatre will
be "Criminal-at-Large" by the late
Edgar Wallace, famous for his mys-
tery novels and plays. "Criminal-at-

Large" was presented all last season
at the Belasco Theatre in New York
and in London under the title of
"The Case of the Frightened Lady."
"Criminal-at-Large" has been one
of the most successful of the re-
cent Festival productions, according
to Mr. Henderson. In the Ann Arbor
engagement, the leading role of Lady
Lebanon will be played by Miss
Minna Phillips of the New York The-
atre Guild. Miss Phillips ,is one of
the original 12 members of the The-
atre Guild and recently appeared on
Broadway in Bernard Shaw's "Apple
Cart," and "Too True to be Good."
"Criminal-at-Large" is both a mys-
tery play and a psychological melo-
drama. It centers about the aristo-
cratic seat of the Lebanon family,
Mark's Priory, where Lady Lebanon
rules her entire household with a
fanatic and iron hand.
The curtain time for "Dinner at
Eight" has been changed from 8:30
to 8:15 p. m. to permit women mem-
bers of the University to conform
with the week-night hour regulations.

November Gargoyle Features
Football, Fashions, B..O.C.'s

Starting with a front page cover
of a football player and an admiring
one-girl audience, done by John Held,
Jr., in the famous Heldian manner,
this month's Gargoyle, to be out
Thursday, continues for 40 pages in
the style which made the first issue
a sell-out.
Besides the Held cover, outside tal-
ent is employed in two of the leadingj
features of the issue. One is a two
page spread by Gurney Williams, '31,
associate editor of Life and the new
magazine of college life, University.
Mr. Williams discusses "How Uni-
versity Came To Be."
Tom Cooley, editor of the Gargoyle
two years ago, has a page devoted to
not immortal poems about birds,
with pictures of a fellow in a top
hat making.faces at the little birdies.
That popular campus monthly fea-
ture, Preposterous People, is again
represented, and the Gargoyle edi-
tors have gone to great effort and

found an even more preposterous
person than they did the first time.
Sophisticated Lady, a well-received
commentary on woman's fashions
which appeared in the first issue, is
again present, and the editors have
devoted a page picture spread to
men's fashions, with an explanation
on the next page. Four campus B.
M. O. C.'s are represented, their
heads pasted onto rather diminutive
bodies. In truth, the B.M.O.C.'s ap-
pear to have quite big heads indeed.
Football again takes a prominent
place in the magazine, with an ar-
ticle entitled "Touchdown? Touch-
down?" featuring Capt. Stan Fay,
and a two page spread of action pic-
tures of the Cornell, Ohio State, and
Chicago games.
Exchange jokes, which were none
too popularly received in the last
issue, have been cut to a minimum
and in their place the magazine will
run a feature on amusing events on
campus entitled "The Proof of The

Sharf man Will
Speak At Law_
Faculty Man To Address
Students And Faculty On
'Law And Economics'
Prof. I. L. Sharfman, head of the
department of economics, will be the
speaker at the second of the cur-
rent series of talks to be presented
for students and faculty members of
the Law School, to be held at 6:45
p. m. today in the Lounge of the
Lawyers Club. Professor Sharfman's
topic will be "Law and Economics."
The series, which was opened two
weeks ago with address by James K.
Watkins, former police commissioner
of Detroit, has been arranged by the
social committee of the club in order
to acquaint those connected with the
legal department with the problems
of today that are closely related to
matters of law. Authorities in these
various neighboring fields have been
invited to deliver informal talks to
the law students and faculty mem-
bers at various times throughout the
current semester.
Professor Sharfman, who is recog-
nized as an authority on'economics,
recently won recognition as one of a
group of outstanding economists who
flayed President Roosevelt's "radical
experimentation with our currency.'
In 1912 the economist became the
chief investigator of the Department
on Regulation of Public Utilities of
the National Civic Federation. Then,
for one year, he was a lecturer in
economics at the University, becom-
ing an associate professor the follow-
ing year. He served as director of
the investigation of anti-trust policy
for the National Industrial Confer-
ence Board, from 1923 to 1924, and
has done research work for the In-
terstate Commerce Commission, un-
der the Commonwealth Fund, since

Family Plan To Arrive
In Manila December 20
Prof. Joseph R. Hayden of the po-
litical science department, who was
appointed Nov. 3 by President Roose-
velt to be vice-governor of the Phil-
ippine Islands, will leave Ann Arbor
with his family Nov. 22 to sail Dec. 1

said yesterday. The family expects to

beth and Mary, aged 15 and 13 re-
spectively, are at present students in

While in Washington recently Pro-
fessor Hayden conferred with and
paid his respects to President Roose-
velt, George H. Dern, secretary of
war, Claude Swanson, secretary of
the navy, and many other high offi-
cials. During a brief stay in New
York Professor Hayden conferred
with Dr. Victor G. Heizer, head of the
International Health Board of the
Rockefeller Foundation, on health
and sanitation problems in the
Professor Hayden described Presi-
dent Roosevelt as apparently in "a
fine state of health."
H. V. Rohrer, former United States
trade commissioner at Manila and a
lecturer at the University of the
Philippines, has taken over all of
Professor Hayden's classes with the
exception of certain seminars.

In support of "The Champions of
the West" in their march for a fourth
consecutive Big Ten title and a sec-
ond national championship, a pep
meeting will be he d at 7:30 p. m.

auspices of the Undergraduate Coun-
cil, Gilbert E. Bursley, '34, president
of the Council, stated last night.

University authorities to consent to a
similar meeting atp late date last
week-end, campus leaders are mak-
ing early plans for this last pep ses-
sion of the 1933 season, in an en-
deavor to attract as many followers
of the team as possible.
On the eve of the traditional 20-
year old struggle with Minnesota for
possession of the Little Brown Jug,
the meeting will be. attended by all
.the members of the 1933 football
squad, Bursley stated last night.
The "Fighting Hu'ndred" will fur-
nish music for th occasion and

leader, and junior asistants will lead

igan songs will be displayed on a
screen erected for the purpose.

nounced during the week, will be se-

Synge Long Cherished Idea Of
Producing Best Play In America

John Millington Synge, author of
"Playboy of the Western World,"
long cherished the idea of taking his
greatest play to what he called "the
greater Ireland across the ocean."
But it was not until 1911, four years
after the Dublin opening, that he
had the opportunity.
Through the efforts of William
Butler Yeats, an opening in Boston
was made possible, and once again
sponsors ran against bitter opposi-
tion. Dublin papers and critics all
fought against allowing the show to
be produced in America, while the
United Irish Societies of New York
determined, through the use of prop-
aganda, to "drive the vile thing from
