Varied Reactions Seen On Eve
Of Repeal Of 18th Amendment

Hurriel Provisions
Rushed Into Effect
Pennsylvania, Ohio, An
Utah Last Three States
To Have Conventions
WASHINGTON, Dec. 4- (A') -
Repeal eve found President Roose-
velt ready to affix his signature to a
proclamation that will strike prohi-
bition from the Constitution upon
ratification tomorrow by the thirty-
sixth State.
Hurried preparations were made
for the event after the executive's
arrival from Georgia to survey the
machinery created to regulate the li-
quor industry until Congress has time
to enact legislation looking to perma-
nent control.
Three states --Pennsylvania, Ohio,
and Utah -hold ratifying conven-
tions tomorrow, making the full
three-fourths that are necessary for
a constitutional change. Governors
of those states are to notify the state
department immediately after action
is taken.
Repeal Plans Aproved
Mr. Roosevelt conferred today with
Secretary Henry A. Wallace and Jo-
seph H. Choate, ;Jr., director of the
Federal alcohol control administra-
tion, in charge of regulating liquor
industries, and approved plans for
post-repeal.
Dr. James M. Doran, commissioner
of industrial alcohol, resigned, ef-
fective tomorrow, to become director
of the domestic Distillers Code au-
thority.
Acting Secretary Henry Morgen-
thau, Jr., of the Treasury, announced
Doran's action simultaneously with
an announcement that the Bureau
of Industrial Alcohol would be re-
turned to the Bureau of Internal
Revenue tomorrow, where. it was in
the pre-prohibition days.
A last-minute effort of prohibition-
ists to block repeal was made in the
District of Columbia Supreme Court
today and a decision is to be handed
down tomorrow.
Attack State Conventions
Counsel for Canon William Sheafe
Chase, of Brooklyn, N. Y., and George
S. Duncan, of Washington, argued
that the conventions in the states did
not have the authority to ratify pro-
hibition repeal. They sought a pe-
tition restraining the acting secre-
tary of state from issuing a repeal
proclamation.
Chase said that an attempt would
be made tomorrow to have the Penn-
sylvania supreme court restrain the
convention called in that state from
ratifying repeal.
L iquor Control

To0Later Date
System Of State Liquor
Shops Restored To Bill
By Senator Karwick
LANSING, Dec. 4- (A) - The pos-
sibility of an early vote in the Sen-
ate tomorrow on the State liquor
control law was eliminated tonight
when the Senate prohibition commit-
tee adjourned until 9 a. mn. Tues-
day with its study of the measure as
yet unfinished.
Members of the committee said an'
effort would be made to report the'
bill out Tuesday afternoon for a vote'
on the floor of the Senate.
One change was made on the mea-
sure during tonight's deliberations.

Sen. Leo G. Karwick, (Dem., De-
troit) introduced an amendment re-
storing to the bill the system of State'
operated liquor stores which was in
the measure as originally drafted by#
the legislative council. The amend-1
ment was adopted by the committee"
by a vote of 4 to 1.

NEW YORK, Dec. 4-() - The
liner Gripsholm steamed up to the
bay here Monday with the bar wide
open, the first inbound vessel to do
so since prohibition went into effect.
Passengers, languidly sipping cock-
tails, watched the docking operations.
The bar was not closed until the
vessel had been eased into its berth.
PHILADELPHIA - An appeal will
be taken to Harrisburg Tuesday from
the action of the Dauphin County
court which refused to enjoin the
holding of Pennsylvania's repeal con-
vention. Lawyers said Monday night
that the appeal, sought by the in-
ternational reform federation, would
not halt the convention.
COLUMBUS -Delegates to Ohio's
repeal convention arrived in this city
Monday night in preparation for
Tuesday's convention which will
mark the state's formal ratification
of the 21st amendment. The general
assembly also will meet Tuesday for
the purpose of drafting liquor con-
trol measures with spirited argument

anticipated over a proposal to au-
thorize sales by the glass.
OLYMPIA-The Washington state
legislature convened here Monday in
special session to consider liquor con-
trol laws. Some cities are making
efforts to control the sale of liquor
until state regulation has been ef-
fected, but the state generally will be
"wide open" Tuesday.
NEW YORK - Applicants for bev-
erage licenses Monday night awaited
word from the liquor control board
while Broadway hung up decorations
and made elaborate plans for the
welcoming of "Old John Barleycorn"
whom they last knew legally 14 years
ago.
SALT LAKE CITY-Utah is pre-
pared to drive the thirty-sixth nail
in prohibition's coffin Tuesday, as-
sembling its convention at noon
(Mountain Standard time) which will
be after Pennsylvania and Ohio have
acted. Due to an elaborate cere-
mony it is not expected that the
actual votes of ratification will be
cast until late in the afternoon.

To Begin Galens
Annual Charity
DriveToday
Tag Sale Designed To Aid
Children Confined To
UniversityHospital
Galens' annual tag sale in support
of its workshop and other philan-
thropic projects to benefit children
confined in University Hospital will
be held today and tomorrow in an
effort to raise funds needed to con-
tinue the work this year.
The shop, which is located on the
ninth floor of University Hospital,
is one part of the three-fold program
for which this money is used.
The other, and less expensive proj-
ects, are a Christmas party for chil-
dren in the various dormitories, and
a "Sunshine Fund," which provides
amusements and distractions for'
children confined to their beds.
The shop represents a normal en-
vironment for boys and girls similar
to that offered in public schools with
the exception that much more op-
portunity for individual initiative and
intellectual freedom is given. It is
designed to meet the needs of sick
children while in the hospital, ac-
cording to Galens Woodwork Shop's
annual report.
Every activity and the use of each
tool is carefully planned to give in-
struction in many kinds of work.
Boys and girls have freedom of choice
in selecting the article to be made
and often a child likes to just look
around for a day or more. Though
many are diffident at first, they all
come to participate in and enjoy the
work.
Magazines, craftsman materialsk
and literature, geographical indus-
trial maps, display boards, and sam-
ples of wood worked on the ma-
chines of the shop are on display to
make this period of observationt
profitable and educational.C
Toy making is a major activity andk
provides an interesting and pains-
taking occupation, teaching the fun-c
damental processes in wood workingt
with little material. The boys and
girls want to make many kinds oft
toys because they like to create, pos-
sess, and take them home as evi-r
dence of their efforts. Materials andt

Prohibition 's End
In Nation To Bring
No ChangeLocally
When John Barleycorn's 14-year
banishment comes to an end today
there will be no bands to play, no
flags to wave, no people to shout, as
legal liquor is welcomed back.
With unexpected tardiness, State
beer experts, senators, and represen-
tatives are tackling the problem of
liquor control and sale, debating, dis-
cussing, probing, and rejecting bills
and clauses.
Nor is the legal outlook any more
optimistic. Any act which was ille-
gal and a violation of the liquor laws
yesterday, or last month, will be in
effect today and tomorrow, city and
county officials state. Attaches of the
police department and the sheriff's
office will not "wink" at the open
sale of liquor stronger than 3.2 with-
out orders from Lansing, it was re-
vealed. Citizens can expect little
or no leniency.
According to Prosecutor Albert J.
Rapp, unlicensed sale of liquor,
whenever apprehended, will be pun-
ished according to law, in an ef-
fort to wipe out the bootlegger.

Cincinnati Symphony Wil

Originated In 1895

Frank Van Der Stuckei
Was First Conductor O
Six Group Has Had
The Cincinnati Symphony Orches-
tra, which will present the fourth of
the current series of Choral Union
Concerts when it appears at 8:15 p
m. today in Hill Auditorium, under
the baton of Eugene Goossens, might
be properly termed the "vision of the
Tafts." The civic association which
in 1895 instituted an annual series
of symphony concerts in the City of
Cincinnati had as its first president
Mrs. William Howard Taft, who re-
tired when her husband, the late
President, afterwards Chief Justice
of the United States was appointe
Governor of the Philippines, in 1900.
Holmes Is Successor
Mrs. Taft was succeeded as head
of the organization which was re-
sponsible for Cincinnati's musical de-
velopment by Mrs. Christian R.
Holmes, who held the office for 13
years. Upon her resignation, Mrs.
Charles Phelps Taft was elected pres-
ident, and held this office until the
orchestra was re-incorporated and
placed under the Cincinnati Institute
of Fine Arts in 1929.
There have been six conductors
of the musical group, recognized as
one of the leading organizations of
its kind in the mid-west. Frank van
der Stucken, the first leader of the
institution, served from 1895 to 1906.
The orchestra was disbanded for the
seasons 1907-08 and 1908-09 because
of labor disturbances, and during the
first of these two. ears,. the Asso-
ciation in charge brought to Cincin-
nati important visiting orchestras.
The second year no concerts were
given, but a guaranty fund of $50,000
yearly, for a period of five years, was
secured by the directors of the con-
pany to found a permanent orches-
tra.
Leopold Stokowski, now affiliated
with the Philadelphia group, was en-
gaged as conductor, and ten pairs
of symphony concerts were given
during the season 1909-10. In 1910-
11 six popular concerts were added to
this schedule. The following season
there were 12 pairs of symphony
concerts and six popular concerts.
Have Noted Guest Conductors
In the spring of 1912 Mr. Stokow-
ski resigned and Dr. Ernst Kunwald
was secured. When he resigned in
Dec., 1917, Walter Henry Rothwell,
Victor Herbert, Henry Hadley, Ossip
Gabrilowitsch and Eugene Ysaye
were engaged as guest conductors to
complete the season. After winning
a great triumph as conductor of the
final concerts, and as general musical
director of Cincinnati's May Festival
of 1918, Eugene Ysaye was made the
permanent conductor, holding the
post until the close of the 1921-22
season. Fritz Reiner, young Hun-
garian conductor, was engaged for
the following season and held the
post for nine years.
The present conductor of the or-
chestra, Eugene Goossens, English-
man a n d musician-extraordinary
(composer, conductor, pianist, vio-

linist) was made musical director of
the Cincinnati Musical Festival As-
sociation at the time he took over the
leadership of the group.
As with similar musical organiza-
tions, the Cincinnati Symphony Or-
chestra has been confronted with
the problem of adequate financial
support. In the period following the
World War the expenses of mainte-

A tentative plan for a co-operative
buying system which, if successfully
formed,may include every fraternity
and sorority on the campus and "sup-
ply its member chapters with superior
commodities and services at substan-
tial savings in time and money by
centralized wholesale buying," will
be under discussion Wednesday when
backers of the plan will meet to se-
cure the acceptance of members of
the board on the plan.
Maxwell T. Gail, '34, secretary-j
treasurer of the Interfraternity Coun-
cil, has announced that the tentativeI
members of the board of governors of1
the association are being contacted at
present, and that organization will
be effected as soon as a suitable num-
ber can be found to agree on the de-
tails of the plan.
The prospectus, which has been
sent out to those who have been in-
vited to attend Wednesday's meet-
ing, provides for a board of governors
to administer the system, which shall
be a "self-perpetuating body com-
posed of from five to seven members."
The governors are to elect officers,
who will serve without pay, and em-
ploy one buyer, who will receive a
compensation.
As explained in the prospectus, a
subscribing house will notify the as-
sociation of the amount of any prod-
uct offered by the association which
it wishes to purchase and shall then
buy from the source suggested by the
association, securing the advantage of
large-scale buying. Payments for
goods and services are to be made
by the tenth of the following month
to the association.
"The stewards, cooks, or other
proper persons will not ordinarily
deal directly with the association,"
the plan states, "but will buy as they

foreign organizations on campus, and
organized under the sponsorship of
the Undergraduate Council, will be
definitely formed at a meeting to
be held at 5 p. m. next Monday in
the Union, it is planned.
Kendall B. Wood, '34, representing
the Liberal Students Union, was
chosen temporary chairman yester-
day. Other members of the consti-
tutional committee are Edward T.
Cheyfitz, '34, of the National Student
League; Adrian H. Jaffe, '36, Van-
guard Club; Barbara B. Hall, '34,
Stalker Hall; Kartar S. Gill, Grad.,
Hindustan Club; and Dexten B. Rey-
nolds, '34, Newman Club. The com-
mittee will meet at 4 p. m. today in
the Union.
No name for the new council could
be decided on at the meeting yester-
day, but it is planned that it will
continue as a permanent body after
the fund drive has been completed
and the money distributed.
Indefinite plans for launching the
drive immediately after the holidays
were generally favored by those pres-
ent yesterday. The Undergrladuate
Council would supply the organiza-
tion and personnel for carrying out
the actual drive, according to Gilbert
E. Bursley, '34, president, but the
new body would have charge of the
distribution of the fund, acting in
conjunction with some faculty mem-
ber or members.
Food-Drug Act
To Be Topic Of
Simmon' s Talk
Federal Act Sponsored By
Rexford Tugwell To Be
Discussed .
The proposed new Federal Food
and Drug Act, sponsored by Rexford
G. Tugwell, assistant secretary of
agriculture, and gen. Royal S. Cope-
land of New York, will be the topic
of an address to be delivered by W.
B. Simmons, of the Department of
Agriculture, at 4:15 p. m. today in
the amphitheatre of the Chemistry
Building.
Mr. Simmons will enumerate vari-
ous products of an injurious nature
which would be eliminated from the
market by the provisions of this new
bill according to Prof. Clifford C.
Glover, director of instruction in food
inspection and analysis here. Profes-
sor Glover declared that one such so-
called remedy now being advertised
extensively as a reducer and revital-
izer is in reality a harsh laxative.
The bill, designed primarily to fur-
ther protect the consumer, proposes
for the first time legislation on the
subject of cosmetics. Heretofore, they
have not been considered as a drug,
but, should the proposed measure be
enacted, manufacturers of these
goods will be forced to conform to
definite specifications, Professor
Glover said.
Advantages of the act, it is said, are
that it will do away with false label-
ing, unfair competitive practices, and
various other practices harmful to the
public.

Due to the success of the experi-
ment last year, the Union will spon-
sor its second ride bureau for stu-
dents desirous of obtaining or offer-
ing to others transportation to their
homes for Christmas vacation, ac-
cording to an announcement by
O'Neill Dillon, '35, and Theodore
Borst, '35, members of the executive
council, who are in charge of the
plan.
Dillon stated that more than 250
students took advantage of this serv-
ice last year, and that it was hoped
that a great many more would avail
themselves of the opportunity. to
travel more cheaply this vacation.
Many applications have already been
received,he added.
The only rule laid down by the
committee is rthat private parties
only may use the service. It will not
be used to promote commercial
schemes.
Registration has already opened.
All students interested should give
their names to the committee any
week-day afternoon in the student
offices between 3 and 5 p. m. or com-
municate with Borst or Dillon.

Scholastic Records Are To
Determine Privileges To
Go To Seniors
The Board of Directors, a women's
self-government body of 'higher rank
than the Board of Representatives,
gave its approval to the proposal to
lengthen women's hours at a meet-
ing held last night in the League.
This afternoon the recommendations
of the two assemblies will be given
over to a staff meeting of Dean Alice
C. Lloyd's office, which will take final
action on hours.
Unanimous approval of the motion
for 11:30 p. m. late permission Sun-
day nights was given by the Board
of Directors. The Board of Represen-
tatives at its recent meeting passed
the motion with only one dissenting
vote.
Permission Not Cumulative
The Board of Directors' approval
was also given to a motion to allow
senior women having honor. points
equal to the number of credit hours
one hour late permission a week, this,
permission to be secured from house;
chaperons for functions within or
outside of Ann Arbor. These permis-
sions, it was stressed, are not to be
cumulative. In other words, a co-ed
who hadinot taken advantage of the
new privilege for three weeks could
not, on the fourth week, secure late
permission for three hours on one
night qf that week, nor one hour late
permission for three days of that
week.
Most of the dormitories, it'was
said, do not have a large senior group,
and it is expected that the dormi-
tories would be able to work out the
chaperon problem in their own ways
if Dean Lloyd gives her approval to
the one hour late permissions each
week. In one dormitory it has been
suggested that the girls appropriate
money from the house fund to pay
the added expense of a chaperon
governing late permissions. This
method, it was said, would not in-
crease the dormitory's board bill.
"No Strict Restrictions"
Scholastic restrictions in connec-
tion with the new late permission lib-
erty for C-average seniors should not
be made too strict because of the dif-
ference in studying demands of the
various courses offered,, it was em-
phasized. Members ofthe Board of
Directors pointed out that there
should be some sort of jifferentiation
between privileges of underclassmen
and seniors.
Dean Lloyd was not present at the
Board of Directors' meeting, feeling
that her absence would promote a
more free discussion of the hours
in question.'
The proposal to lengthen women's
hours Saturday nights was turned
down by the directors.

"Of all foreigners, Robins was the
only man whom Lenin was always
willing to see and who ever suc-
ceeded in imposing his own person-
ality on the unemotional Bolshevik
leader," says Bruce Lockhart in his
famous book "British Agent" of Col.
Raymond Robins, who will deliver a
lecture on "Russia - After Fifteen
Years," Tuesday, Dec. 12, on the third
of the Oratorical Association Lec-
tures.
According to officials of the Ora-
torical Association, when old Russia
fell, and Lenin and Trotzky swept
into power in 1917, Colonel Robins
was in Petrograd as commissioner
commanding the American Red Cross
in Russia. As the old order broke
down he became unofficial represen-
tative of the United States for deal-
ing with the Soviet rgovernment.
ColoneldRobins revisited Russia
during the spring and summer of
1933. He saw the results of 15 years
of Soviet rule. Stalin, who for a year
and a half has refused foreigners an
interview, spent an hour in confer-
ence with him.
In a radio broadcast shortly after
his second return to the States he
summarized thechange wrought in
Russia by the Soviet program as fol-
lows: "There has been terrible cost
in freedom and life to the Russian
people during these 15 years. There
have been hunger, bitter suffering,
starvation and death to pay for the
New Order Of Things that is rising
out of the old Russia. Everywhere
there is the presence of armed force,
and propoganda is around the citizen
from the cradle to the grave.
"Are the gains worth these colos-
sal costs? That is a matter of per-
sonal opinion. Certain I am that
no western nation could have paid
the price the Russians have had to
pay. Certain I am that we would
not tolerate the Soviet system 24
hours in our America."
Oratorical Contestants To
Hold Meeting Tomorrow
A meeting of all students planning
to enter the annual University Ora-
torical contest will be held at 4 p. m.
tomorrow in the Alpha Nu Room,
fourth floor of Angell Hall, accord-
ing to Carl G. Brandt of the speech
department who is in charge of the

Coach Herbert W. (Buck) Read's
Western State Teachers College bas-
ketball team hung up its third
straight triumph over the University
of Michigan five here tonight, trounc-
ing the Maize and Blue 24 to 11.
Defensive play and poor shooting
marked the first half, which ended 6
to 4 in favor of the Kalamazoo Hill-
toppers. Michigan's cagers couldn't
stand the pace in the second half
and Western steadily pulled away.
Perigo and Lephan led the Western
attack With nine and seven points
respectively.
Coach Cappon used 12 Wolverines,
but the visitors were able to garner
but three field goals.
